10:10 EDTIBM, N, MSFT, SAP, PANW, CRM, FEYE, SPLK, WDAYAnalyst sees 'golden' opportunity after software stocks decline
The recent decline in high-growth software names has created a buying opportunity, FBR Capital analyst Daniel Ives wrote in a note to investors earlier today. The analyst recommended buying several names that he thinks fit this category, identifying Splunk (SPLK), salesforce.com (CRM), Workday (WDAY), FireEye (FEYE), Netsuite (N), and Palo Alto (PANW) as stocks that should be bought following their recent sell-off. WHAT'S NEW: There has been "panic-like" selling of high valuation software stocks, partly due to fears about seasonally weak first quarter results and the general rotation into value names, Ives wrote. However, the analyst suggested that the stocks named above are "winners" in high growth markets, with annual growth rates that should be well above 3%-5%. The sell-off in software names was not caused by fundamental issues and the declines in the top high growth companies has created a "golden buying opportunity," Ives added. Additionally, the analyst wrote that he would not be surprised if a tech giant, such as Microsoft (MSFT), IBM (IBM), or SAP (SAP), acquires a data, cloud or cybersecurity company in the wake of the recent downturns in their stocks. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Splunk added 0.7% to $63.14, salesforce.com rose 1.4% to $55.02, Workday climbed 0.6% to $81.16, FireEye rebounded 2% to $51.42, Netsuite was little changed at $84.65, and Palo Alto gained 0.8% to $63.55.

13:28 EDTIBMBlackBerry hits 52-week high after unveiling partnerships
Shares of BlackBerry (BBRY) hit a new 52-week high after the company announced three new partnership deals. The company is slated to hold its analyst day today, starting at 3:30 PM ET. WHAT'S NEW: BlackBerry announced that it would partner with Samsung to provide a security solution for the South Korean company's mobile devices that utilize Google's (GOOG) Android operating system. Under the deal, BlackBerry’s BES12, an Enterprise Mobility Management system, or EMM that was launched today, will be integrated with some of Samgung's Galaxy smartphones and tablets. BES 12 "securely manages devices from all of the major enterprise mobile platforms" and "will help organizations securely connect employees with each other and with the corporate information and machines” they need, BlackBerry stated. Also today, Blackberry announced that it would connect its EMM solutions to Salesforce's (CRM) top customer relationship management platform. "This agreement will allow Salesforce and BlackBerry joint customers to run their businesses from their phone while complying with specific industry regulations," said Vivek Kundra, a Salesforce Executive Vice President in a statement. "BlackBerry has an excellent reputation in security and networks, and when matched with the Salesforce Customer Success Platform, public sector organizations can use their mobile devices to connect with customers in a whole new way," added Kundra. Finally, BlackBerry announced that Brightstar would distribute BES 12. BlackBerry described Brightstar as "the world's largest wireless distribution company and leader in services for the wireless industry." WHAT'S NOTABLE: BES12 is expected to compete with Apple (AAPL) in the enterprise space. Apple earlier this year announced that it was partnering with IBM (IBM) in an effort to sell more products to corporate customers. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, BlackBerry jumped 6% to $11.95. Earlier today the shares set a new 52-week high of $12.05.
