Jefferies slashed its price target on Velti (NASDAQ: VELT) from $12 to $8 but is keeping a Buy rating on the name following yesterday's 25% sell-off on cautious analyst day comments.

Commenting on the analyst meeting, Jefferies notes: "Velti focused on their platform and substantial opportunity. Despite 2013 capex being -50% Y/Y, we believe comments about H1 investments, poor Q1 FCF seasonality, and 2013 EBITDA being down Y/Y due to the divestiture will weigh on the stock. We cut our ests and target to $8. We think the messy transitions will yield more consistent execution but patience will be needed."

The firm cut FY13 EPS estimates from $0.81 to $0.50.
