Recent News & Updates
Juniper Networks gains on vague takeover speculation
Juniper Networks (NYSE:JNPR) rose 2.9% on some vague takeover speculation. Gordon Haskett speculated in a note that its possible that Juniper CEO Rami Rahim is getting restless as potentially evidenced by his decision to take his first outside board seat. In addition Rahim, who has been the CEO since the end of 2014, appeared to promote a successor 13 months ago. Recall last July JNPR named Manoj Leelanivas as its chief operating officer. Juniper may potentially be viewed as a strategic takeover target, especially if it appears its CEO may be headed out the exit door, the note suggested. TO BE CLEAR: The Thursday report doesn't say that suitors may be looking at Juniper (JNPR) as what appears to have been circulated on social media. In addition the company announced on Thursday that Rahim is scheduled to present at the Citi Global Technology Conference on Sept. 7. Recall there was some vague speculation last August about potential activist interest in Juniper (JNPR).
