11:26 EDTORCL, ALU, SONS, AUDCSonus jumps after analyst calls ‘most underappreciated’ in tech
Shares of Sonus Networks (SONS) are climbing after research firm Jefferies wrote that the company "may be the most underappreciated story in the tech sector." Sonus develops Internet Protocol communications networks. WHAT'S NEW: After attending Sonus' Analyst Day on Thursday, Jefferies analyst James Kisner wrote that the company had "a very bullish tone" and unveiled "a barrage of positive data points." Sonus said that demand for some systems that use its products are increasing, the analyst wrote. Additionally, the company announced many impressive announcements about its customers, Kisner reported. Meanwhile, given that Sonus is taking share in a space in which Oracle (ORCL) has already made two acquisitions, while operating in a sector linked to WhatApp's business, investors are showing relatively little interest in Sonus, contended the analyst. Kisner thinks the stock can reach $10 by 2017, and he reiterated a Buy rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Alcatel-Lucent (ALU) sells Internet Protocol routers, while AudioCodes (AUDC) provides voice over Internet equipment. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Sonus climbed 18c, or 5%, to $3.62.

Stocks on Wall Street were lower at midday ahead of the conclusion of the Federal Reserve's latest rate setting meeting and the central bank's accompanying announcements. The averages began the session in negative territory and have been range-bound throughout the morning. The Dow was down triple digits once again, making 8 consecutive days that the blue chip index has seen a triple digit move. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the DOE petroleum inventory reports showed a 9.6M barrel rise in crude stocks in the week of March 13, versus expectations for a 4.4M build. The day's big economic news is yet to come, with the Fed's FOMC meeting announcement due at 2:00 pm EDT and Fed Chair Yellen holding a press conference a half hour later. Elsewhere, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unexpectedly defeated his main challenger in Israel’s election and his Likud party appears set to capture more parliament seats. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of FedEx (FDX) slid 2.5% after the shipping giant reported earnings that beat estimates, but revenue that fell short of the consensus forecast, for its third fiscal quarter. FedEx noted that it expects to deliver "record" yearly earnings for the current fiscal year and next fiscal year as well... Oracle (ORCL) shares rose 2.5% after the company's third quarter profits matched expectations and it raised its quarterly dividend 25%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Vitesse Semiconductor (VTSS), which jumped 37% after the company agreed to be acquired for $5.28 per share in cash by Microsemi (MSCC). Also higher was Retrophin (RTRX), which rose 28% after the company said it will exercise its right to purchase from Asklepion Pharmaceuticals all worldwide rights, titles, and ownership of Cholbam after the FDA approved the drug for the treatment of pediatric and adult patients with bile acid synthesis disorders due to single enzyme defects and for patients with peroxisomal disorders. Among the noteworthy losers was Willbros Group (WG), which dropped 55% and was downgraded to Underperform at DA Davidson after announcing its earnings report will be delayed and the company is in potential non-compliance with debt covenants. Also lower following their earnings reports were Nektar Therapeutics (NKTR), which fell 15% after the company's Phase III BEACON metastatic breast cancer study missed its primary endpoint. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was down 105.02, or 0.59%, to 17,744.06, the Nasdaq was down 12.45, or 0.25%, to 4,924.99, and the S&P 500 was down 7.69, or 0.37%, to 2,066.59.
