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.
