learn to spell dude. your talking gibberish. would not surprise me if ffiv would make a buy or some buys. they are sitting on a boat load of cash and are in a good place. on top of that, online security is more important then ever. this stock is cheap now. could be 145 in 3 months? we'll see
The is stubborn rumors in the company the FFIV executives are in discussion with ATEN for meager or takeover. Merger of FFIV with ATEN is a good thing for FFIV? I don't think so. What you guys think? This is good move for FFIV?
covered my 2000 shares short today at 126s and went long 1000 shares at 126...total loss of $3500 on my short trade...now looking to recuperate that with my 1000 long shares.
From Zacks, this is the end of the article-----Our Take
F5 Networks reported better-than-expected third-quarter fiscal 2015 results. Also, the year-over-year comparisons on both counts were favorable, primarily due to better-than-expected software sales. The company also provided encouragingfourth-quarter guidance.
Furthermore, the company’s GBB pricing strategy and its BIG-IQ platform remain tailwinds. Revenue growth seems to be steady and was positively impacted by strength across all its business segments and higher software revenues.
We believe that the company’s product refreshes will boost revenues, going forward. Moreover, these initiatives are expected to expand the company’s total addressable market and result in client wins.
Better execution and focus on enterprise and service providers have placed F5 Networks well in the application delivery controller market. Nevertheless, the volatile spending atmosphere and competition from Juniper Networks Inc. JNPR remain concerns.
Currently, F5 Networks has a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
F5 Networks: Getting ‘Its Groove Back'
White commented that back in January, F5 Networks delivered a "soft" December quarter, which resulted in the market reaching for the "panic button."
On the other hand, F5 Networks' June print was "strong" with both revenue and earnings per share topping expectations, while the company also provided a "healthy" fourth quarter outlook. As such, the company's December print could be considered as a "speedbump" that occurred during an "exciting growth cycle" for the company.
Shares remain Buy rated with a price target raised to $150 from a previous $140.
this is why i dont rush to cover...they always bring it down for a cheaper cover later in the day. I am waiting till the close to cover my 1000 short FFIV shares.
cant believe 10K loss overnight.......still looking for a dip to get out....i will have to cover this today no matter what...Margin wont let me hold this overnight.
Sorry for your loss, but this stock is headed higher short term and long term. The calls for $135 or $140 are fine, but that is a few months away.
It is my biggest position. I will probably sell calls if it goes too crazy.
I would think it rises, but $135 following $130 from $118 is a bit too much too fast. The race goes to the strong, not the swift.
