13:06 EDTPANWIT security stocks advance after upbeat Goldman note
Shares of a number of IT security stocks are rallying after Goldman Sachs wrote that it was upbeat on the sector in a note to investors today. WHAT'S NEW: Goldman Sachs analyst Matthew Niknam assumed coverage of the Security Software sector with an Attractive rating. Cyber threats have become larger and more costly, so many companies are increasing the amount of money they spend on IT security, Niknam wrote. Spending on security is increasing by the highest rate since 2010, the analyst estimated. Companies in the sector should see their free cash flow growth accelerate, while cash rich tech companies could become interested in carrying out M&A transactions with security vendors, the analyst predicted. Additionally, more mature companies in the sector should be able to buy back more of their shares going forward, Niknam believes. He identified Palo Alto (PANW) as his top pick in the space, as he believes that the company provides "the most unique blend of disruptive long-term growth and accelerating profitability." The company is poised to gain additional market share, while its growth going forward should beat expectations, Niknam stated. He raised his price target on the shares to $97 from $91 and kept a Conviction List-Buy rating on the stock. Meanwhile, the analyst upgraded another stock in the sector, FireEye (FEYE), to Buy from Neutral after assuming coverage of the shares. The company's status as the market leader in fighting Advanced Persistent Threats, or APTs, leaves it well-positioned in the current market, he contended. An IT survey indicates that most respondents plan to increase their APT-related spending, and 59% of the respondents say they plan to spend more money on solutions from a new vendor, Niknam reported. Furthermore, FireEye's revenue growth likely accelerated in Q2 and its revenue should beat expectations in 2014 and 2015, while the company's free cash flow should come in above consensus levels next year, Niknam predicted. FireEye may eventually be acquired by another company, according to Niknam, who raised his price target on the shares to $42 from $36. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Niknam initiated coverage of Proofpoint (PFPT) with a Buy rating as he predicted that the company's growth and free cash flow would beat expectations in the near-term and he believes that the company could also become a takeover target. The analyst started coverage of Fortinet (FTNT) with a Neutral rating. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Palo Alto climbed 3% to $78.36, FireEye rose 3.5% to $34.99, Proofpoint climbed 3.6% to $34.46, and Fortinet rose 1% to $24.24.
