FireEye +2.2% AH on Stifel launch

Stifel's Gur Talpaz has launched coverage on FireEye (NASDAQ:FEYE) with a Buy and $45 target.

Like others, Talpaz considers FireEye's products well-differentiated relative to rival offerings, and praises its technology architecture (involves a multi-vector execution engine for analyzing malware, and a custom hypervisor).

He declares the company is "uniquely qualified to offer risk-averse organizations the full lifecycle of security solutions needed to detect, combat, and ultimately remediate a potential attack."

Talpaz admits FireEye trades at a premium to other security software names, but considers its valuation justified. Shares currently go for 7.7x the midpoint of FireEye's 2014 billings guidance range.

    $45 is rich but when you have pink glasses on, many beaten stocks look appealing. FEYE now bound for a decent pop if we follow your lead. 50% rise. Should make the calls go crazy. Thx. jm
