Wells Fargo maintains a 'Market Perform' on Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR) price target range $14-17 (from $20-24).

Analyst, Jess Lubert, said, "We attended Juniper's analyst day, which outlined its addressable end-market opportunities, new product initiatives, and strategy to gain share in key product categories. That said, the biggest news surrounded Juniper's reduced long-term financial model, which now calls for 9-12% sales growth, 63-66% gross margin, and 20+% operating margin during 2012-15..."

Lubert said lowered growth assumptions were below what many were expecting and therefore reflect maturation of the router market, higher competition and continued global challenges. Lubert cuts FY13 EPS from $1.25 to $1.20.
