Barclays initiates coverage on Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW) with an Equalweight. PT $58.00.

Analyst, Jeff Kvaal, said, "Palo Alto Network's leadership in next generation firewalls should drive robust growth in sales and margins: We expect meaningful revenue and margin upside in the near and medium term. A rich multiple leads to our EW."

Kvaal also noted that PANW has taken share from Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) and Juniper (Nasdaq: JNPR) and that revenue estimates are likely conservative (by a lot). He has a FY13 EPS estimate of $0.14, but said PANW has the potential to report up to $0.40.
