  • These Tech Firms Should Proceed with Caution

    By Phillip Woolgar - August 5, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, SBAC, WIN

    Technology firms are among the most competitive stocks to own. That competition has many of these businesses making acquisitions in an effort to stay ahead of the game. Too much growth can negatively affect a company's returns to investors, since dipping into cash flow takes its toll on the company's earnings per share and dividends. The following three companies represent businesses that are expanding, but knowing which firms more »

    By Shweta Dubey - August 1, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, FNSR, JNPR

    According to MarketLine, the world network equipment industry is expected to grow to $184 billion in 2015, a 34% increase as compared to 2010. The reason for this growth is increasing Internet data demand, new trends, upgraded technology, and new products. This has encouraged telecommunication carriers and Internet service providers to upgrade their networks, driving the growth of networking companies. The following three networking and communications companies are focused on more »

  • How Will 2013 Bode for These 3 Tech Companies?

    By Madhukar Dubey - June 12, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, MSFT, PANW, RVBD

    Editor's Note: This article has been amended to better describe Riverbed's Steelhead device.

    With Forrester anticipating a smoother ride ahead for the US tech industry, it will be interesting to see how CIOs invest their IT budgets. According to the report, business and government spending on “Information & Communication Technology” products and services is expected to rise by 5.7% in 2013.

  • Two Losers and One Winner in the Networking Industry

    By Leo Sun - June 8, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, CIEN, CSCO, PANW

    The networking equipment industry has been a tough one to navigate this past year. Investors who have been following this market should have noticed several major trends by now - a heavy dependence on government, telecom and enterprise spending, a brutal pricing war, and a revelation that in tough times, leaner businesses fare better. It’s often difficult for these companies, which offer a wide variety of products, such as switches more »

  • 3 Tech Stocks for Bottom Fishers

    By Chris Lau - May 29, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, FIO, RAX

    The divergence of a poor-performing stock is most evident when the stock indices keep rising. So when a company vastly underperforms a rising stock market, investors should take notice. Take, for instance, the Nasdaq 100 index. In a one-year period, the index is up 22%, while Aruba (NASDAQ: ARUN), Rackspace Hosting (NYSE: RAX), and Fusion-io (NYSE: FIO) are all down. In the last month, Aruba dropped 40%, trading at around more »

  • How to Invest for a 13-Fold Increase in Mobile Web Traffic

    By John Macris - May 29, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, CSCO, QCOM

    The Federal Communications Commission, responsible for regulating the wireless airwaves, is hoping to reserve a large portion of wireless spectrum for an anticipated 13-fold increase in mobile web traffic by 2018.

    Yes, you read correctly. Mobile data usage is expected to increase by 1,300% in the next 5 years, and regulators are hoping to avert what FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel labeled as an “end of world” scenario for cell more »

  • No Bargains in Wi-Fi Solutions Providers

    By Mark Holder - May 26, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, RKUS, UBNT

    After recent weakness in the Wi-Fi solutions providers, do any of the stocks provide bargains now? Both Aruba Networks (NASDAQ: ARUN) and Ruckus Wireless (NYSE: RKUS) have been absolutely crushed recently while Ubiquiti Networks (NASDAQ: UBNT) has been the lone winner in the sector. One big question is whether the big boy in wireless network gear, Cisco Systems has returned to reclaim market share in the sector.

  • The Key Earnings For the Week

    By Lee Samaha - May 15, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, ADSK, DCI, JWN, VAL

    Earnings season is starting to wind down, but we still have some interesting companies reporting this week. Since we are nearing the end of the season a lot of these companies’ peers will have already reported, so the market will be anticipating the direction of the results. I’m going to use this approach to preview what investors might expect from the results this week.

  • This Wi-Fi Solutions Provider Is Too Hot to Touch

    By Anh HOANG - May 13, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, RKUS, ERIC

    On May 6, Ruckus Wireless (NYSE: RKUS) experienced a significant decline of as much as 17.4% to $15.70 per share in after hours trading after it reported sluggish results. Ruckus Wireless investors might not be happy, as the company has dropped more than 32% since the beginning of the year.

    Interestingly, several famous institutions are big Ruckus Wireless shareholders, including Sequoia Capital and Google. While Sequoia holds 5 more »

  • 4 Reasons to Dump This Tech Stock

    By Bill Edson - April 6, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, CRUS, PCRFY, SSNLF

    Japanese electronics giant Panasonic (NASDAQOTH: PCRFY) has been suspect for years - not for verifiable wrongdoing, but because the increasingly poor business decisions of leadership have led to a plummet in value.

    Kazuhiro Tsuga, who took over as Panasonic's leader almost a year ago, moved the company to a widespread scale back from popular items – items which might have saved it from this year long tumble - like mobile phones in more »

  • The Key Earnings for the Week Ahead

    By Lee Samaha - February 16, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, HLF, INTU, JWN, PDCO

    A very interesting collection of companies will be reporting this week (the week of Feb. 18). Sometimes, constructing a portfolio ends up in actually creating a de-facto an ETF that apes the market or a sector in terms of performance and risk. On the other hand, if you take a sniper-like approach to finding a collection of companies, each with their own profit driver, you can achieve good diversified returns more »

  • Noteworthy Upgrades on Thursday

    By Brian Nichols - February 14, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, NOW, FIRE, WLL

    Sometimes an analyst issues a revised outlook or changes his/her rating, but does not inform investors of the reasons behind the call. These typically move stocks on the call alone; the price target and outlook. However, some analysts provide detailed reasons; these are the outlooks that should be noted and used as part of your fundamental research. Therefore, I am taking a look at such outlooks and determining the more »

  • What Cisco's Earnings Will Tell the Tech Market

    By Lee Samaha - February 10, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, CSCO, EQIX, FTNT, PLCM

    In general it’s been a better than expected earnings season for technology. Sure there have been some disappointments with cautious enterprise spending and Government cutbacks, but we haven't seen any major IT stock say that the macro conditions are noticeably getting worse. All of which leads us into Cisco System’s (NASDAQ: CSCO) results for Q2. I want to preview them so investors can quickly know what to more »

  • Why It’s Time to End the “Juniper vs. Cisco” Debate

    By Richard Saintvilus - February 3, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, CSCO, JNPR, PANW, VZ

    Conviction is a great thing to have in the stock market. But then again, patience has its limits. For as much as investors have waited on Juniper’s (NYSE: JNPR) promise, the company always seems to be in a holding pattern with no discernible growth strategy. Meanwhile, the stock is expensive.

    Granted, poor carrier spending has taken a significant toll on Juniper’s business. But this has not impacted rivals more »

  • The Hottest Stocks in Telco

    By Lee Samaha - January 28, 2013 | Tickers: APKT, ARUN, T, FFIV, VZ

    With AT&T (NYSE: T) and Verizon (NYSE: VZ) having reported results it’s time to take a look at what they said about spending and the trends within their businesses. Tier 1 carriers make up the bulk of telco spending, and investors can garner a lot of insight from what they say. In summary I would argue that there has been an acceleration of the trend towards smartphones and more »

  • Why This Stock is a Sell Ahead of Earnings

    By Richard Saintvilus - January 21, 2013 | Tickers: ARUN, CSCO, JNPR, PANW

    It seems there’s always something bothering Juniper (NYSE: JNPR). As much as I’ve wanted to like the stock, execution has been lacking. Granted, weak carrier spending has impacted its performance. But when compared to Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO) and a few smaller rivals, the story changes dramatically -- it says Juniper is heading in the wrong direction. And until management can put together consecutive quarters of solid growth, investors would more »

  • Why I'm Following Cisco’s Path to $30 in 2013

    By Richard Saintvilus - December 26, 2012 | Tickers: ARUN, CSCO, DELL, HPQ, PANW

    My log of potential breakout surprises in 2013 is starting to take shape. Though Cisco’s (NASDAQ: CSCO) valuation suggests that the market is not expecting much from the networking giant, after a solid fiscal Q1 earnings report it’s getting harder and harder to keep its name off the list.

    Cisco will end 2012 lounging in the $20-ish area, representing a respectable gain of 14% on the year. While more »

  • A Ruckus of an IPO

    By Mark Holder - December 20, 2012 | Tickers: ARUN, CSCO, RKUS, SCTY | Editor's Choice

    When Ruckus Wireless (NYSE: RKUS) went public in mid-November, the stock immediately crashed from an opening price of $15 all the way to close at $12.25 for an 18% loss on the initial day. A month later the stock has soared to a high of $20 highlighting the issues with the IPO market.

    The market for IPOs remains as arcane as decades ago with institutional investors blocking out individual more »

  • 3 Stocks Facing a Short Squeeze

    By Cecil Sales - December 17, 2012 | Tickers: ARUN, FSLR, JCP

    I scoured the countryside to find three stocks that are facing battle between insider trading and short sellers. Short selling is the selling of a stock that the seller doesn't own. When you short sell a stock, your broker will lend it to you. The stock will come from the brokerage's own inventory, from another one of the firm's customers, or from another brokerage firm. The shares more »
