11:33 EDTCUDA, PFPT, FEYE, IMPVFireEye advances after analyst predicts sentiment could rebound
Shares of IT security company FireEye (FEYE) are rallying after Nomura predicted in a note to investors earlier today that sentiment towards the stock could improve following its lock-up expiration on May 21. WHAT'S NEW: After restrictions preventing FireEye insiders from selling stock expire on May 21 investors could become more optimistic about the shares, Nomura analyst Rick Sherlund predicted. FireEye has a robust opportunity in the IT security market and its technology is "best-of-breed," while its management team is strong, the analyst stated. Additionally, the company is adding new products and its advanced persistent threat technology could become more mainstream, said Sherlund. FireEye is investing heavily and losing money, but investors with a longer term time horizon could benefit from the company's positive attributes, the analyst indicated. The stock reached an attractive entry point, wrote Sherlund before the market opened. He kept a Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: FireEye, which has tumbled about 60% in the last three months, rose about 3% to $28.82 in late morning trading. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other stocks in the sector were also advancing this morning, with Proofpoint (PFPT) rising 5.5%, Imperva (IMPV) gaining 2% and Barracuda Networks (CUDA) climbing a bit more than 2%.

10:59 EDTIMPV, FEYE, PFPT, CUDACyberArk bucks downward market trend after Piper upgrade
The shares of Israeli cybersecurity company CyberArk (CYBR) are flat despite the large decline in the broader market after research firm Piper Jaffray upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold. The stock's decline has created an attractive entry point, as companies are becoming more interested in the type of products CyberArk offers, Piper analyst Andrew Nowinski contended. WHAT'S NEW: After conducting extensive checks, Nowinski believes that companies are becoming more interested in Privileged Account Management, the area in which CyberArk specializes. Enterprises are focusing on this area more intently because they realize they need to spend more on protecting their most critical assets within firewalls, the analyst stated. As a result of this trend, CyberArk's market share gains could accelerate, Nowinski believes. Moreover, the company is one of the few cybersecurity companies capable of generating 40%+ revenue growth and 20%+ operating margins, the analyst stated. Additionally, the company's 2016 free cash flow should come in nearly triple analysts' consensus 2016 estimate, said Nowinski, who set a $70 price target and Overweight rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded IT security companies include Barracuda (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), FireEye (FEYE), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), Qualys (QLYS) and Symantec (SYMC). PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, CyberArk was little changed at $51 per share.

JPMorgan analyst Sterling Auty says that market disruptions like the one seen in the last several days have historically provided a unique opportunity to invest in high-quality names and identified FireEye (FEYE), Adobe (ADBE), Veeva Systems (VEEV) and Rovi (ROVI) as four particularly interesting tech stocks that "appear flushed out" and now offer "exaggerated" risk/reward. The firm has Overweight ratings on all four stocks mentioned above after having upgraded Rovi to Overweight this morning.

15:01 EDTFEYEWyndham slips after FTC given go-ahead for data breach lawsuit
Shares of Wyndham (WYN) have slipped in afternoon trading after an appeals court ruled that the FTC can sue the company over its allegedly poor cybersecurity practices. WHAT'S NEW: According to a Reuters report of court proceedings, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia has ruled that the FTC may proceed with its lawsuit against Wyndham over data breaches in 2008 and 2009, saying the hotel company failed to take reasonable steps to protect customer information. Wyndham's allegedly lackluster data protection policies constitute "unfair and deceptive trade practices," granting the Federal Trade Commission authority to step in, said Judge Thomas Ambro. FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez commented, "It is not only appropriate, but critical, that the FTC has the ability to take action on behalf of consumers when companies fail to take reasonable steps to secure sensitive consumer information," according to the report. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Today's ruling comes in the wake of numerous high-profile "hack attacks," with American Airlines (AAL), Anthem (ANTM), United Airlines (UAL) and Target (TGT) all reporting digital security breaches in recent years. Though no final verdict has been reached in the case between the FTC and Wyndham, Judge Ambro may have established the beginnings of a legal precedent potentially allowing the Commission to sue companies for not going far enough to protect consumer data and Chairwoman Ramirez appeared to share that broader tone. PRICE ACTION: Shares of Wyndham are down about 4% in intraday trading. Cybersecurity firms FireEye (FEYE) and Palo Alto Networks (PANW) are down roughly 2% and 2.7% for the afternoon.
