Imperva downgraded on valuation at DA Davidson
As noted earlier, DA Davidson downgraded Imperva to Neutral from Buy. Analyst Jack Andrews downgraded the stock based on valuation. He thinks that a number of strategic and financial entities could be interested in buying Imperva, and he believes that the company will probably be sold "over the next few months." However, the analyst thinks that the company may not be bought for a price that is significantly higher than its current valuation. Target remains $55.

Buy
Intel upgraded to Buy from Hold at Evercore ISI
Evercore ISI analyst C.J. Muse upgraded Intel (INTC) to Buy and raised his price target for the shares to $45 from $38. The chipmaker closed Friday up 6c to $36.08. Fears of a slowdown in its Server business and sustained weakness in PCs have led Intel shares to underperform peers thus far in 2016, Muse tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects the underperformance to change as the company's Data Center Group segment accelerates to 10%+plus growth in the second half of 2016. Further, Muse thinks Intel's "competitive moat remains" despite potential competition from ARM Holdings (ARMH) and IBM's (IBM) Power9 architecture. He sees 25% upside in Intel shares from current levels.

Speculation suggests Imperva takeover in 'near sight,' says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Shaul Eyal is not surprised to see the list of potential Imperva (IMPV) buyer candidates mentioned in an article from Bloomberg, which includes Cisco (CSCO), IBM (IBM), Fortinet (FTNT), Akamai (AKAM), and privately held Forcepoint. The analyst envisions Imperva's product line aligning particularly well with Cisco's and IBM's given the recent drive by both to expand their security offerings. Eyal sees a potential price target ranging between $55-$60 if the speculation has any merit and sufficient interest from multiple bidders. Oppenheimer has an Outperform rating on Imperva's shares.

Consensus may be underestimating Cisco security growth, says UBS
UBS analyst Steven Milunovich said Cisco needs to grow its security business by double digits for the stock to outperform. He believes the company can do that and sees the Street underestimating its ability in security, citing the company's opportunity to leverage its network dominance and differentiate by providing a unified offering versus competitors' piecemeal parts. Milunovich reiterated his Buy rating and $35 price target on Cisco shares.

Bhagavath reiterates a Buy rating on Cisco.
