In addition to NetApp's poor guidance and H-P's Autonomy issues, F5 (FFIV -7.9%) has been hit by a downbeat note from Deutsche's Brian Modoff that has implications of other enterprise IT names. Modoff says his checks with IT buyers and resellers indicate macro worries are affecting the spending plans of major enterprises, and stand to affect F5's FQ3 and 2H results. However, he's still bullish on F5's ADC and security businesses, and potential to grow software sales. (Dell) (Cisco)
