13:25 EDTJNPR, PANWEarnings Preview: Juniper sahres rise ahead of Q2 earnings report
Juniper Networks (JNPR) is scheduled to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Tuesday, July 22, with a conference call scheduled for 5:00 pm ET. Juniper Networks designs and sells network infrastructure solutions for service providers and enterprise customers. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for EPS of 38c on revenue of $1.22B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 36c-39c on revenue of $1.20B-$1.24B. In its first quarter earnings release, the company said it sees Q2 adjusted EPS of 36c-39c on revenue of $1.2B-$1.23B, and both of those forecasts were in-line with estimates. LAST QUARTER: On April 22, Juniper reported Q1 adjusted EPS of 29c which matched estimates and revenue of $1.17B against expectations for $1.15B. NEWS: Juniper announced that it has entered into a settlement agreement with Palo Alto Networks (PANW) which resolved patent litigation between the two companies. Under the terms of the settlement, Palo Alto Networks made one-time payment to Juniper Networks of $75M in cash and $100M in shares of common stock and warrants to purchase common stock. With this settlement, Juniper Networks and Palo Alto Networks planned to dismiss all patent litigation pending in Delaware and California. RESEARCH: After news that Juniper settled a patent litigation agreement with Palo Alto on May 29, UBS said Juniper's $175M settlement is a positive as it allows the company to focus on its IPO and deliver on profitability targets. The firm gave shares a Buy rating. Oppenheimer said the deal would enable Juniper to focus more intently on its Integrated Operating Plan and free up some of its resources. The firm thinks the deal will raise Juniper's EPS by about 1c per quarter. It keeps an Outperform rating on Juniper. Deutsche Bank and Janney Capital echoed positive opinions about the news. Mizuho downgraded Juniper to Neutral from Buy on June 19, but on June 30, Cantor said that it believes the company's Integrated Operating Plan has longer term implications. After the company's stock fell 15% from its 2014 peak, the firm feels that the shares can rebound significantly from current levels. It maintained a $32 price target and Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: Since Juniperís Q1 report, shares of the company fell 1.38%. In afternoon trading ahead of its Q1 report, Juniper is up 2.2% to $24.99.

12:35 EDTPANWCybersecurity stocks rally after Raytheon announces joint venture
The shares of cybersecurity companies are rising after Raytheon (RTN), a major defense contractor, announced that it was forming a cybersecuity joint venture with a company in the sector, Websense. Raytheon will acquire control of Websense as part of the deal. WHAT'S NEW: Raytheon announced that it had agreed to form a joint venture with Websense, which is owned by Vista Equity Partners. Under the deal, Websense will combine with Raytheon Cyber Products, a business unit of Raytheon's Intelligence, Information and Services segment. Raytheon will pay about $1.57B for an 80.3% stake in the joint venture. Additionally, Raytheon will pay $1.9B, net of cash acquired, to buy Websense. Of the $1.9B, $600M will be in the form of an intercompany loan to the joint venture. The combined company will be treated as a separate business segment of Raytheon, the defense contractor stated. John McCormack, the CEO of Websense, will be the CEO of the unit. The deal is expected to close next quarter. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Wells Fargo analyst Sam Pearlstein wrote that the deal will raise Raytheon's non-GAAP, 2015 adjusted earnings per share by about 6c. However, the transaction will lower Raytheon's EPS on a GAAP basis for 2015 by 48c, driven by amortization of intangibles, deferred revenue, and one-time costs, according to Pearlstein. The analyst kept an Outperform rating on Raytheon shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Cybersecurity company Check Point (CHKP) reported stronger than expected first quarter results today. Its Q2 guidance was roughly in-line with analysts' consensus estimates at the midpoints of the ranges given for earnings and revenue. Additionally, Check Point announced a partnership with another cybersecurity company, FireEye (FEYE). The companies said they would share threat intelligence to protect customers from modern advanced attacks. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading,Check Point jumped 5.4% to $86.14, FireEye rose 3.8% to $42.39, Palo Alto (PANW) gained 2.4% to $146, Fortinet (FTNT) added 1.7% to $34.28, Proofpoint (PFPT) advanced 1.7% to $58, and Raytheon slid 0.3% to $107.40.
