Sterne Agee upgraded NETGEAR (NASDAQ: NTGR) from Neutral to Buy with a price target of $41.00.

"We believe the recent pullback is overdone and find the risk-reward attractive. We see several 2H catalysts/drivers: (1) ramp of 802.11ac or Gigabit Wi-Fi; (2) 4G LTE gateway opportunity helped with its acquisition of SWIR's data card business; and (3) recovering storage business, though small, is accretive to margins," analyst Shaw Wu states. "Moreover, we believe CSCO selling Linksys helps."

The $41 price target is based on a 13.5x multiple on CY14 EPS.
