Finjan announces final PTAB decision on IPRs filed by Palo Alto

Finjan Holdings (FNJN) announced that on April 11 the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, or PTAB, for the United States Patent & Trademark Office issued a final written decision on instituted Inter Partes Reviews, or IPRs, filed by Palo Alto Networks (PANW) and joined by Blue Coat Systems. The consolidated proceedings related to challenges to certain claims of Finjan's U.S. Patent 8,677,494. Conclusively identical to its previous final decision on a petition filed by Symantec (SYMC), also related to the '494 Patent, the PTAB determined that only three method claims were unpatentable while nine system claims were not unpatentable. "This final decision by the PTAB represents an important milestone and metric of the durability and value of Finjan's cybersecurity patents. Finjan's patents have overcome 46 original IPR petitions, totaling more than 70 administrative challenges. Of the seven instituted IPR proceedings and more than a dozen ex parte proceedings the portfolio remains remarkably unchanged," stated Julie Mar-Spinola, CIPO of Finjan.

DOWNGRADE

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Intel (INTC) downgraded to Underperform from Market Perform at Bernstein with analyst Stacy Rasgon saying the beginnings of a multi-year structural downturn are beginning to show. The analyst believes Intel's datacenter growth is "beginning to crack" amid compressing margins and an increasingly competitive environment. "The world seems to be moving against Intel's strengths," Rasgon writes. 2. Palo Alto Networks (PANW) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley, to Market Perform at William Blair, to Neutral from Outperform at Baird, and to Neutral from Overweight at JPMorgan. 3. Waste Management (WM) downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Barclays with analyst Jon Windham citing high valuations in the municipal solid waste space following the recent rally. Most of the upside from potential tax reform is already reflected in Waste Management shares, Windham tells investors in a research note. He raised his price target for the name to $73 from $70. 4. Signet Jewelers (SIG) downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at Telsey Advisory. 5. Ross Stores (ROST) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Citi with analyst Paul Lejuez saying the risk/reward is more balanced with the shares close to his unchanged price target to $72.

Fortinet upgraded to Outperform on Firewall market share gains at Baird
As previously reported, Baird analyst Jayson Noland upgraded Fortinet (FTNT) to Outperform from Neutral, saying that the Firewall market has been consolidating around four players and he "increasingly" hears Fortinet in the conversation with industry leaders Check Point (CHKP), Cisco (CSCO) and Palo Alto (PANW). Noland, who expects Fortinet to remain a "market share taker for years to come," raised his price target on the shares to $50 from $38.

Too early to measure impact on Symantec from Google claims, says UBS
UBS analyst Fatima Boolani noted that numerous press sources have reported that Google (GOOG) Chrome engineers are investigating Symantec (SYMC) for allegedly improper issuing of SSL certificates to websites and could downgrade, and eventually reject, Symantec-issued certificates on its browsers. The stock hasn't reacted and it is premature to determine the potential financial impact, said Boolani, who added that Symantec has committed to reissuing affected customers' certificates at no cost and that the claim of up to 30K questionable cases compares to the company's over 4M issued certificates to date. The analyst, who has a Buy rating on Symantec, anticipates a more formal response in the coming days, which could dispel fears of a material impact.

Symantec placed on negative catalyst watch at Citi
Citi analyst Walter Pritchard placed Symantec on negative catalyst watch ahead of the Q4 earnings report with the stock up 28% year-to-date. Investor expectations remain for $2.00 in earnings power for FY18 while the company is likely to only raise its $1.70-$1.80 guidance by 5c-10c, Pritchard tells investors in a research note. He expects investor focus will shift to the sales reorganization and earnings power falling short. He keeps a Neutral rating on Symantec with a $29 price target.
