What the F5 Networks Downgrade Means for Mutual Fund Investors (FFIV)

Inside the Analyst Move
According to analyst Alex Henderson: “We continue consider F5 Networks to be the best run company in our coverage. We see the company as well positioned and likely to produce solid growth in CY15 and CY16. However, the stock is now at our $130 Target Price. FFIV shares appreciated over 45% in CY15 (vs up ~17% fpr tje S&P 500). At current prices it is already selling at 20x CY16E P/E and 17x CY16E EV/E. F5 benefited from easy comps throughout CY14 but is confronted with more challenging comps in CY15. We think growth is likely to decelerate.”
