10:36 EDTNTAPGoldman upbeat on telecom equipment, lukewarm on IT hardware
The telecom equipment sector has a number of positive catalysts, Goldman Sachs wrote in a note to investors today. The firm has a neutral view on the IT Hardware sector, however, noted the analyst team that took over coverage of the stocks in the space. WHAT'S NEW: Telecom equipment companies should benefit from spending on 100G wide area network upgrades between 2015 and 2017, Goldman analyst Simona Jankowski wrote. Also likely to boost the sector is the expansion of cloud providers' private networks, the analyst stated. The latter trend should produce a new market for the sector, Jankowski believes. Within the sector, she kept Buy ratings on Juniper (JNPR), Arris (ARRS) and Ciena (CIEN). The analyst, who has an Attractive view on the Telecom Equipment sector, has a Sell rating on shares of Infinera (INFN), however. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Jankowski views the IT hardware sector as a mixed bag. The sector's valuations are attractive, and it is generating strong free cash flow and robust capital returns, the analyst believes. However, it is being hurt by the shift to cloud computing and by foreign exchange fluctuations, Jankowski warned. Within the sector, she downgraded NetApp (NTAP) to Sell from Neutral and kept a Sell rating on Motorola Solutions (MSI). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Jumiper declined 2% to $25.24, Arris gave back 1.8% to $26.40, Ciena dropped 2% to $21.77, Infinera fell 3.8% to $20.27, NetApp tumbled 4.5% to $29.80 and Motorola Solutions lost 1% to $66.30.
