12:12 EDTSPLK, CSCO, AMZN, PANWSplunk climbs after analyst says shares look poised to rebound
Shares of Splunk (SPLK), which creates data mining tools, are advancing slightly in a down market after research firm Wedbush wrote in a note to investors earlier today that the stock is well-positioned to advance. WHAT'S NEW: Splunk's stock has tumbled 27% this year, while its high-growth software peers covered by Wedbush have been flat on average in 2014, analyst Steve Koenig wrote. After speaking with a number of Splunk's resellers and customers, the analyst believes that its products are becoming more popular. Moreover, Splunk's products appear to be several years ahead of its competitors, Koenig stated. Additionally, partnerships that the company has signed with a number of tech firms - including Cisco (CSCO), Amazon (AMZN), and Palo Alto (PANW) - will make it harder for competitors to put a dent in its market share, the analyst believes. With Splunk increasing the size of its sales force, the company's revenue growth could exceed expectations by as much as ten percentage points in the second half of fiscal 2015, Koenig stated. He kept a $67 price target and Outperform rating on the shares.PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, the shares climbed 1% to $53.82. Splunk's stock is up 17% in the last month.

13:04 EDTCSCOFinisar retreats after analyst cuts on pricing, demand worries
Shares of optical components maker Finisar (FNSR) are falling after research firm Jefferies downgraded the stock to Hold from Buy in a note to investors today, citing pricing and demand concerns. WHAT'S NEW: After conducting checks, Jefferies analyst James Kisner wrote that Finisar is facing "brutal" prices for datacom optics, particularly in China. Prices for telecom components in North America are also challenging for Finisar, he reported. Various low-cost competitors are driving down prices for datacom optics, while AT&T (T) is trying to force optical systems vendors to cut the prices of their components by 40%, Kisner stated. Meanwhile, demand for mobile backhaul optics slowed significantly in China over the last month, and two of Finisar's customers - Cisco (CSCO) and Huawei - are exploring alternatives to Finisar's products, Kisner indicated. Additionally, Intel (INTC) and numerous start-ups may launch products that will compete with those of Finisar, potentially cutting into its market share beginning in the second half of 2015, the analyst warned. He cut his price target on the shares to $19 from $25. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Finisar slumped 5.5% to $19. Other optical components makers also dropped, with Oclaro (OCLR) falling 1% to $1.75 and JDS Uniphase (JDSU) losing 2% to $11.30.
