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.
