Security hardware stocks rally on expectations Pres. Obama will issue an executive order meant to bolster government spending on cybersecurity following tonight's State of the Union. Intrusion prevention system leader SourceFire (FIRE +8.8%), which received 28% of its sales from the U.S. government in Q3, is the biggest winner, but Fortinet (FTNT +4.3%), Check Point (CHKP +1.2%), and Palo Alto Networks (PANW +1.1%) are also higher.
