10:59 EDTFFIVCyberArk 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.
07:49 EDTFFIVData networking shares should be bought on weakness, says Bernstein
Bernstein says that Cisco (CSCO), Juniper (JNPR), and F5 Networks (FFIV) are down almost 10% recently, although they have "limited exposure" to China, according to the firm. Additionally, even in the face of wider macro economic weakness, Cisco "would still be protected by a positive product cycle momentum," while Juniper would be shielded by "the late cycle nature" of the spending trends of its service provider customers, according to the firm. Bernstein keeps Outperform ratings on all the stocks named.
