10:13 EDTFEYE, PANWPalo Alto rises following FBR upgrade
Shares of IT security company Palo Alto (PANW) are climbing after two research firms issued upbeat notes about the company earlier today. WHAT'S NEW: FBR Capital analyst Daniel Ives upgraded the stock to Outperform from Market Perform. Ives wrote that his research indicates that adoption of the company's appliances and servers is increasing faster than expected. The company is benefiting from strong spending on IT security products, wrote the analyst ,who predicts that its revenue should grow at a 45% clip in fiscal 2014 and at a 33% pace in fiscal 2015, excluding revenue from Cyvera, an Israeli start-up that it recently acquired. Cyvera should enable Palo Alto to sell products to more customers, according to Ives, who views Palo Alto's risk/reward as "compelling." The firm raised its price target on the stock to $90 from $80. Meanwhile, JMP Securities analyst Erik Suppiger wrote that the acquisition of Cyvera should enable Palo Alto to more effectively compete with Advanced Persistent Threat, or APT, products offered by one of its rivals, FireEye (FEYE). The APT security market represents a critical growth opportunity for Palo Alto, added Suppiger, who believes that the Cyvera acquisition has increased Palo Alto's total addressable market by about $4B. He nonetheless reiterated a Market Perform rating on the stock. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Palo Alto rose $2.20, or 3%, to $75.50.
