10:53 EDTJNPR, CSCOJuniper hits 52-week high after better than expected results, new operating plan
Shares of network infrastructure provider Juniper Networks (JNPR) are rallying after the company reported better than expected results and announced the pending release of a new operational plan. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Juniper reported preliminary fourth quarter earnings of 43c per share and revenue of $1.27B, exceeding expectations of 37c and $1.22B, respectively. The company gave in-line guidance for the first quarter. On Juniper’s fourth quarter earnings conference call, CEO Shaygan Kheradpir said the company will announce a new operational plan within 3-4 weeks, including discrete milestones. WHAT’S NOTABLE: Last night, in a letter to Juniper, activist investor Jana Partners backed Elliot Management’s recent plan to unlock significant shareholder value by cost realignment, capital return to shareholders, and the optimization of Juniper’s product portfolio. ANALYST REACTION: This morning, analyst commentary was overwhelmingly positive. Three firms -- William Blair, Barclays, and Goldman Sachs -- upgraded Juniper after the company’s better than expected results and announcement of its new operating plan. Another firm, Cantor, raised its price target on the shares to $35 from $30.50. Cantor said the stock's valuation was attractive, and believed the shares could advance meaningfully over the next year. It kept a Buy rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: Juniper rose $2.42, or 9.3%, to $28.43 on nearly twice its average daily trading volume in morning trading. Earlier in the session, the stock hit a fresh 52-week high of $28.58. Over the past twelve months, the stock is up approximately 33%. OTHERS TO WATCH: Juniper’s main competitor in the network space is Cisco Systems (CSCO).
