Piper sees Fortinet issues as company specific

Piper Jaffray analyst Andrew Nowinski believes the issues that drove Fortinet's (FTNT) negative Q3 preannouncement are company specific. He lowered his price target for the shares to $30 from $33 and keeps a Neutral rating on the name. Nowinski points out that his firm's channel checks suggest demand has remained strong for both Palo Alto Networks (PANW) and Check Point (CHKP). The analyst recommends adding to positions in both names following any pressure from the Fortinet miss.

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.

On The Fly: Top five analyst upgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst upgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. McDonald's (MCD) upgraded to Outperform from Neutral at Baird by analyst David Tarantino, who believes the stock's risk/reward has become more favorable following the year-to-date underperformance. The analyst admits that slower U.S. industry demand trends and challenging upcoming comparisons pose a "short-term headwind," but thinks the company's "attractive" dividend yield can help to limit further downside risk in the shares. 2. United Continental (UAL) upgraded to Outperform from Market Perform at Raymond James, with analyst Savanthi Syth applauding the selection of Scott Kirby as President and Andrew Levy as CFO. Syth said both have strong industry experience and has increased conviction United will reduce its margin gap relative to its peers over the next 12-18 months. 3. VMware (VMW) upgraded to Buy from Neutral by SunTrust analyst John Rizzuto, who says that the company has effectively diversified beyond its server virtualization roots. The analyst, who expects the company's revenue to bottom this year and accelerate through the end of the decade, raised his price target on the stock to $92 from $64. 4. Barracuda (CUDA) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at Pacific Crest, as analyst Rob Owens said he's seeing improved trends due to the company's renewed product alignment and cloud-centric channel marketing campaign. 5. Fortinet (FTNT) upgraded to Overweight from Sector Weight at Pacific Crest by Rob Owens, who believes management's focus on enhanced profitability should drive share outperformance.

DOWNGRADE

Sector Weight
Imperva downgraded to Sector Weight from Overweight at Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Rob Owens downgraded Imperva (IMPV) to Sector Weight saying the company's fundamentals continue to be challenged. Iimproved performance will take longer than the Street appreciates, Owens tells investors in a research note. The analyst sees a "limited number" of strategic suitors for Imperva and thinks the current share price could prevent "meaningful upside" should a buyer step in. Owens coupled the downgrade with upgrades this morning of Barracuda (CUDA) and Fortinet (FTNT) to Overweight.
