12:21 EDTBRCD, RDWR, JNPR, PKT, FFIV, ALLT, CSCOJuniper 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.
