11:07 EDTPANW, JNPRAnalysts upbeat on Palo Alto after Juniper settlement
Palo Alto (PANW) is surging and Juniper (JNPR) shares are rising as well after the companies announced last night that they had settled their patent litigation. In notes to investors earlier today, a number of firms wrote that the deal was a significant positive development for Palo Alto. WHAT'S NEW: Palo Alto, which develops IT security products, agreed to pay Juniper $175M, including $75M in cash, approximately $70M in shares of its common stock and a warrant to purchase approximately $30M more shares. The companies agreed to dismiss their lawsuits, license the patents over which they had sued each other, and refrain from suing each other over patents for eight years. ANALYST REACTION: From Palo Alto's perspective, the settlement was much more positive than expected, wrote Detsuche Bank analyst Karl Keirstead. Major investors had expected the settlement to consist of a $500M payment by Palo Alto and 2%-3% royalty payments, he estimated. Palo Alto's outlook is now significantly less risky, added the analyst, who raised his price target on the stock to $95 from $90 and kept a Buy rating on the shares. Meanwhile, Oppenheimer analyst Shaul Eyal upgraded Palo Alto to Outperform from Market Perform. Like Keirstead, Eyal believes that the deal significantly reduced the risk facing Palo Alto. Following the agreement, investors will focus on the company's solid fundamentals, added the analyst, who introduced a $90 price target on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Also last night, Palo Alto reported stronger than expected third quarter results and provided generally in-line fourth quarter guidance. Calling the results and guidance solid, Eyal said that they support continued healthy double-digit growth rates by the company. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Palo Alto climbed 8% to $75, while Juniper added 1.5% to $25.60.
