Juniper shares fell as FBR worried that the firm would not be able to contend with the new products being developed by Cisco, and also that Juniper’s current products might not perform well in the current environment, in which demand is building for network equipment that can help bring revenue or decrease network cost and complexity. In addition FBR is dubious as to whether Juniper will be able to fulfill its long-term guidance, and thus keeps its Market Perform rating on the shares, which fell 3.29 percent in mid-morning trading.
