12:21 EDTPKT, FFIV, ALLT, CSCO, BRCD, RDWR, JNPRJuniper climbs following Wells Fargo upgrade
Shares of Juniper (JNPR) are rising after Wells Fargo upgraded the stock in a note to investors earlier today. Juniper offers routing and switching products that are used to control and direct network traffic and sells solutions to protect the users, applications and data on customers' networks. WHAT'S NEW: After meeting with Juniper's new CEO, Wells Fargo analyst Jess Lubert is more confident that the company is well-positioned to capitalize on what he sees as likely strong spending by carriers this year. Juniper's benefits from strong carrier spending should offset challenges the company could face as it makes changes to capitalize on opportunities presented by cloud and data center trends, Lubert contended. Meanwhile, Juniper is on track to meet its goal of cutting costs and returning a minimum of $3B to shareholders over the next three years through share repurchases and dividends, the analyst believes. As Juniper makes progress towards meeting those goals, its stock could increase significantly, Lubert forecast. The analyst finds Juniper's valuation attractive and upgraded the stock to Outperform from Market Perform while increasing his price target range on the stock to $30-$32 from $28-$30. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies that develop solutions for networks include Cisco (CSCO), F5 Networks (FFIV), Radware (RDWR), Allott Communications (ALLT), Procera (PKT), and Brocade (BRCD). PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Juniper rose 59c, or 2.3%, to $26.50.

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.

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.
