12:26 EDTSYMC, CHKP, FEYE, BRCD, IMPVIT security names climb after Imperva revenue beats expectations
A number of IT security stocks are rising after one of the companies in the sector, Imperva (IMPV), reported higher than expected fourth quarter revenue. WHAT'S NEW: Imperva, which provides data security products, reported fourth quarter revenue of $42.7 million, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $41.61M. The company's earnings per share, however, came in at 6c, versus the consensus estimate of 11c. Imperva noted that it had continued to accelerate its investments in sales and marketing support, as well as product development infrastructure during the quarter, in order to take advantage of global demand for its products. Imperva said that it had added 237 new customers last quarter, up from 199 during the same period a year earlier. "Customer demand remains solid across all geographies, and our overall bookings growth once again outpaced revenue growth as our investment in sales and marketing infrastructure continues to pay off," said Imperva CEO Shlomo Kramer. Imperva's fiscal 2014 revenue guidance came in above expectations, but its EPS outlook was well below the consensus outlook. The company said that its forecast for a significant fiscal 2014 operating loss reflects expenses from recent acquisitions, as well as ongoing investments in R&D, sales and marketing. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Imperva surged 7.9% to $59.65. Other IT security companies also advanced, with FireEye (FEYE) rising 6.3% to $70.50, Symantec (SYMC) gaining 1.5% to $20.80, Barracuda (BRCD) gaining 2% to $31.20, and Check Point (CHKP) adding 0.7% to $64.70.

She raised her price target for the stock to $12 from $11. Summit Research analyst Srini Nandury upgraded Brocade this morning to Buy. The stock is up 63c to $10.35 in pre-market trading.

09:51 EDTFEYEFireEye called top-tier security vendor in new upgrade
Shares of FireEye (FEYE) are getting a boost after Imperial Capital highlighted the company's "significant progress" when upgrading its rating on the name. California-based FireEye is a provider of cybersecurity solutions. UPGRADE: Imperial Capital analyst Michael Kim upgraded FireEye to Outperform from In-Line this morning in a note to investors, citing a favorable risk/reward at current share levels. The stock trades at the lower valuation end of similar high-growth security vendors, Kim tells investors in a research note. He believes FireEye is making "significant progress" on driving higher sales productivity and margin expansion. Ramping global adoption of the company's platform has made FireEye a top-tier security vendor, Kim argues. He raised his price target for shares to $55 from $45.50. NOT ALONE: Kim is not alone in recommending stocks in the cybersecurity space. Analysts at Piper Jaffray and Wells Fargo last week highlighted security names that they view as attractive investments. CyberArk Software (CYBR), Barracuda Networks (CUDA) and Fortinet (FTNT) were among the stocks recommended by the firms. Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski said the recent pullback in the sector is an attractive buying opportunity. Stocks with the most attractive valuations include Barracuda, CyberArk, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks (PANW), he told investors last week. Wells Fargo analyst Gray Powell last week upgraded Israel-based CyberArk to Outperform from Market Perform saying the company's billings growth as well as its sales and marketing efficiencies are "exceeding peers by a wide margin. HACKS CONTINUE: High-profile cyber attacks continue with the Internal Revenue Service yesterday raising the number of accounts that were compromised in a data breach earlier this year. In May, the IRS revealed that 114,000 tax accounts through its "Get Transcript" application were exposed to thieves. Yesterday, the agency said a recent review revealed approximately 220,000 additional tax accounts may have been breached, bringing the total number of victims up to 334,000. Shares of FireEye are up 56c to $44.21 in early trading. CyberArk is up 13c to $60.06 while Proofpoint (PFPT), a company focused on securing email communication, is up 16c to $65.06.
