Juniper: Oppenheimer Upgradeshttp://bit.ly/bUjLpLOppenheimer analyst Ittai Kidron this morning raised his rating on Juniper Networks (JNPR) to Outperform from Perform, setting a $36 price target. The stock closed yesterday at $30.54. The upgrade follows the company’s Q3 earnings report yesterday after the close.“Juniper reported in-line Q3 results and Q4 guidance, and while the lack of sales upside may be disappointing, it primarily reflects timing rather than underlying demand weakness,” he writes in a research note. Kidron contends the company has “a good chance of achieving its 20% growth target.”Adds Kidron: “We like Juniper’s growth profile ahead of a favorable product cycle, share gain potential and margin expansion opportunities. We would take the opportunity to buy Juniper on weakness and establish a long-term position.”
