MKM Partners analyst Michael Genovese kept his Buy rating and $51 price target on Ciena (CIEN), saying yesterday's 2% decline in its stock price coming in sympathy with the negative pre-announcement ant Corning (GLW) was misplaced and represents a "buying opportunity". The analyst notes that Corning has referenced lower Telco capital expenditure on cable deployments and "Fiber to the Home" projects, but states that Ciena has no exposure to that market. Genovese does warn however that Corning called out reduced Data Center fiber spending among some enterprise customers and sees that slowdown potentially impacting Cisco (CSCO), F5 Networks (FFIV), and Juniper (JNPR).
