- Hortonworks (NASDAQ:HDP) has plunged below $13 (making new post-IPO lows along the way) after pre-announcing its Q4 sales/billings and filing a shelf registration for a follow-on stock offering.
- Needham's Richard Kugele (Buy, $21 target) wants some more details about the offering. "Clearly some type of capital raise was anticipated (and the company said as much previously), but there was also no sense of urgency on the part of management in any public commentary. We believe it will be incumbent on HDP during its roadshow to show why this offering, announced in this way, at this time should not be interpreted as evidence of serious difficulty. Given our overarching positive stance on the space and the company’s relative position within it, we maintain our Buy rating."
- With public investors increasingly cautious in how they value fast-growing tech companies incurring big losses, Hortonworks is now worth $599M - much less than the $1B+ it was valued at in a 2014 funding round. Teradata's (TDC -0.3%) 6.3% stake in the company is now worth $38M. Yahoo's 15.1% stake is worth $98M.
- Hortonworks' Q4 report arrives on Feb. 10. Teradata reports on Feb. 4.

- Barclays' Raimo Lenschow has downgraded firewall/security software firm Check Point (CHKP -1.9%), cloud talent management software firm Cornerstone OnDemand (CSOD -2.7%), and data warehousing hardware/software provider Teradata (TDC -3.8%) to Underweight. Cloud HR/financials software vendor Workday (WDAY -3.6%) and e-commerce software/services provider Demandware (DWRE -2.9%) have been cut to Equal Weight.
- Cloud HR software firm Paycom (PAYC -1%), on the other hand, has been upgraded to Overweight on a belief consensus estimates are too low. Meanwhile, BofA/Merrill has launched coverage on Demandware at Buy.
- Regarding Check Point, Lenschow says he prefer security tech firms that are gaining share - his top three ideas are Palo Alto Networks, Imprivata, and Rapid7. He sees security IT spend rising 7% in both 2016 and 2017, a rate on par with 2015's.
- Regarding Cornerstone, Lenschow is worried about slowing top-line growth, a lack of profits, and growing competition. Regarding Workday, he's concerned about competition from SAP/Oracle, a high valuation, and the relatively limited impact of its financials offerings on sales growth.
- The downgraded names are underperforming amid a 1.1% Nasdaq drop.

- Shares are now down 36% YTD. Longbow Research previously argued Teradata's efforts suggest it's prepping for a sale.
