F5 Networks should be opportunistically bought, says at RW Baird

Baird would be opportunistic buyers of F5 Networks following its disappointing earnings pre-announcement. The firm noted its reason for its recent upgrade was telecommunications trends but said it was not a vertical in their survey work. The vertical was offset however by strength in Security and Enterprise. Shares remain Outperform rated with a $110 price target.
