Symantec jumps 14% after private equity firm said to make takeover approach

Shares of Symantec have jumped after Reuters reported, citing people familiar with the matter, that technology-focused private equity firm Thoma Bravo has approached the cybersecurity software company about a potential deal to go private. Symantec previously reached a settlement with activist hedge fund Starboard Value in September and PE firms Bain Capital and Silver Lake are also investors, the report noted. In morning trading, Symantec shares are up $2.82, or 14%, to $22.84.

Outperform
Proofpoint assumed with an Outperform at Baird
Baird analyst Jonathan Ruykhaver assumed coverage on Proofpoint (PFPT) with an Outperform rating and $130 price target. The analyst calls the stock's valuation "compelling," noting that Proofpoint's email security solution is among the best-rated technologies from industry experts, and saying he has a very high regard for the executive team. Additionally, Ruykhaver views the threat of increased competition from established providers like Cisco (CSCO) and Symantec (SYMC) to be "muted."

Neutral
Symantec initiated with a Neutral at Wedbush
Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives initiated Symantec with a Neutral rating and $19 price target, telling investors that while Symantec fundamentally still has a core enterprise security customer base and product franchise which has clear value and growth potential, he believes more pain is still ahead as FY19/FY20 Street numbers appear somewhat aggressive with his checks indicating integration issues and longer sales cycles are getting worse and not better in the field. In the near-term the uncertainty from the investigation, sales force turnover, and company specific headwinds keep him on the sidelines on this name.
