    Teva (TEVA) enjoyed 12B shekels ($3.3B) of tax breaks from 2006-2011 as part of a government program to encourage capital investment. Teva topped the list of companies with the largest breaks, with Israel Chemicals (ISCHF.PK) number two at 2.2B shekels and Check Point (CHKP) number three at 1.65B. The party could be over now, though - the publication of the figures comes amid tax hikes and spending cuts as Israel faces a large budget deficit, and Finance Minister Yair Lapid is reviewing the tax incentives.

    Palo Alto Networks (PANW) now -13.9% AH in response to its mixed FQ3 results. With shares trading at lofty multiples, there was little margin for error. In its PR, Palo Alto mentions seeing a "touch macroeconomic environment" (peers can sympathize), but doesn't give a specific reason for its revenue miss. Revenue growth of 54% is a slowdown from FQ2's 70%. Still, deferred revenue rose 17% Q/Q to $219.3M. Opex +70% Y/Y to $80M, with sales/marketing spend +71% to $51.7M (51% of revenue). CC getting started (webcast), guidance should be provided. Off in sympathy: CHKP -1.2%. FIRE -2.2%.

    Fortinet (FTNT) -13.5% AH after warning it expects Q1 revenue of $134M-$136M and EPS of $0.10, below a consensus of $140.4M and $0.12. Billings are pegged at $147M-$149M, below guidance of $158M-$162M. The company blames a failure to close a few U.S. service provider deals (F5's warning also cited telco demand), EMEA/Latin America weakness, and inventory shortages and product timing issues. Asia-Pac and U.S. enterprise demand was healthy. With shares trading at 36x 2013E EPS, there wasn't much room for error. Did Ken Goldman's departure play a role? CC at 5PM ET (webcast). CHKP -1.3%. PANW -0.8%. FIRE -1.5%.

    J.P. Morgan's Thomas Lee notes that several laggards in the first quarters of 2009-12 rebounded in Q2, so he figures select tech stocks look appealing now. Tech's forward P/E ratio is below the market's for the first time in 17 years, Lee says. His most noteworthy call is to buy Apple (AAPL), which slid 16% Q/Q. Some other favorites: BRCM, CHKP, ESRX, MYL, TASR, CHS, F, COF.

    Lazard cuts Check Point (CHKP -1.9%) to Neutral; the firm says channel checks indicate share losses to Palo Alto Networks (PANW) are growing. Palo Alto's next-gen firewalls are causing headaches for incumbent firewall vendors Check Point, Cisco, and Juniper thanks to their ability to support deeper content analysis on an integrated platform. The company recently bragged of an 85% win rate in deals it competes for.
