10:10 EDTN, PANW, MSFT, IBM, SAP, SPLK, CRM, WDAY, FEYEAnalyst 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.
