Shares of IT security company Symantec (SYMC) are climbing after the company reported higher than expected profit for its fiscal fourth quarter and provided full-year profit guidance that also beat analysts' consensus estimate. WHAT'S NEW: Symantec reported fourth quarter earnings per share of 47c, compared with analysts' consensus estimate of 42c. The company's revenue came in slightly below expectations. Symantec's revenue fell 7% last quarter versus the same period a year earlier, but the company said it expects its revenue to resume increasing year-over-year in the second half of fiscal 2015. Moreover, Symantec provided fiscal 2015 EPS guidance of $1.84-$1.92, versus the consensus estimate of $1.83. Its fiscal 2015 revenue guidance was in-line with expectations. "Our fourth quarter results, led by better performance from our sales teams and cost reductions, demonstrate the underlying health of our business," said Symantec's interim CEO,Michael Brown. "There are substantial opportunities for us to improve our growth profile, maximize profitability and create value, and I'm confident we have the right team and plans in place to achieve our objectives," added Brown. The company is leading an active search for a permanent CEO, and has hired executive search firm Russell Reynolds to assist with the process, Brown reported. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, research firm Jopel Fishbein wrote that Symantec is "showing signs of life." The company's billings trends improved, representing a good start for its turnaround efforts, Fishbein wrote. The analyst stated that he was "cautiously optimistic" about Symantec and continues to believe that the stock holds unlocked value. He kept an Outperform rating on the shares. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded IT security companies include Barracuda Networks (CUDA), Check Point (CHKP), F5 Networks (FFIV), FireEye (FEYE), Fortinet (FTNT), Imperva (IMPV), Palo Alto (PANW), Proofpoint (PFPT), and Qualys (QLYS). PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Symantec jumped 3.6% to $20.86.
