08:57 EDTPANWImperva should be bought after negative preannouncement, says Pacific Crest
After Impreva preannounced lower than expected Q1 revenue, Pacific Crest blamed the miss on a lack of sales execution and lengthening sales cycles. However, the firm is still upbeat on Imperva's outlook, as it expects demand for security products to increase. Pacific Crest reduced its price target on Imperva to $48 from $62. It recommends buying other IT security names, including Palo Alto (PANW) and Proofpoint (PFPT), on weakness in the wake of Imperva's guidance. The firm keeps Outperform ratings on all the stocks named.

Worldwide PC shipments totaled 73.4 million units in 1Q14, a decline of -4.4% year on year, according to the International Data Corporation Worldwide Quarterly PC Tracker.
