Proofpoint selloff brings good entry point, says Wedbush

Wedbush analyst Steve Koenig believes today's selloff in shares of Proofpoint (PFPT) presents a good entry opportunity. The analyst does not view Fortinet (FTNT), which last night preannounced weaker than expected results, as a bellwether for the network security space. Koenig adds Barracuda Networks (CUDA) last night attributed its earnings beat to traction with new cloud-based offerings. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on Proofpoint.

Equal Weight
Fortinet downgraded to Equal Weight at Stephens
As previously reported, Stephens analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver downgraded Fortinet to Equal Weight from Overweight after the company announced "disappointing" preliminary Q3 results with an expected billings range of $343M-$348M versus consensus of $375M. The analyst believes that in addition to slower overall growth in the network security market, heightened competition is impacting sales growth. He also lowered his price target on the shares to $32 from $43.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Norfolk Southern (NSC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Avondale with Donald Broughton saying he continues to believe volumes will continue to decline, yields will continue to disappoint, cost savings will be increasingly harder to achieve, return on invested capital will continue to deteriorate, and the combination of those factors should result in fiscal 2017 earnings below fiscal 2016, pressuring valuation. 2. Fortinet (FTNT) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Stephens with analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver saying he believes that in addition to slower overall growth in the network security market, heightened competition is impacting sales growth. 3. Alcoa (AA) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at BofA/Merrill with analyst Timna Tanners saying she believes Alcoa's aerospace-focused downstream segment will continue to struggle with execution issues and delays over the next several quarters. 4. Emerson (EMR) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Shannon O'Callaghan saying analysts need to lower estimates to reflect Emerson's portfolio transformation, pension headwinds and end market pressures. 5. Nanometrics (NANO) downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest with analyst Weston Twigg saying 3D NAND equipment demand is likely to peak in 2017.

AMD (AMD) upgraded to Neutral from Underperform at Credit Suisse with analyst John Pitzer saying near-term momentum will continue to offset longer-term concerns around lack of scale. 5. Motorola Solutions (MSI) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at BMO Capital with analyst Tim Long saying he expects organic revenue growth to return later this year and sees the company's investment in smart public safety software to help expansion beyond hardware.

Barracuda price target raised to $32 from $26 at Stifel
Stifel analyst Gur Talpaz raised Barracuda's price target to $32 from $26 following the Q2 beat and raised FY17 guidance. The analyst said Barracuda had meaningful traction in core products and continues to achieve with its email security and public cloud solutions with both new and existing customers. Additionally, the initial demand for the company's core product line not only translates to growth in core billings but in core subscription ARR, which increased 50% year-over-year to $146mn during the period, the analyst wrote. Talpaz believes the growth opportunity for Barracuda's email security and public cloud solutions to be large and reiterates his Buy rating.
