MixedReviews_editTomahawk, WI 3/22/2013 (Expedated) – As the week is winding down to a much needed end we take a look at one of todays bigger losers.

 Tibco (TIBX) is down over 14% in the morning session. Tibco provides middleware and infrastructure software on a worldwide basis. It has products in the areas of service-oriented architecture and core infrastructure; business optimization; and process automation and collaboration. All of these products help organizations integrate their disparate systems and move towards a more flexible infrastructure.

Last night reported the company reported its fiscal Q1 revenue that missed the mark. They also took a hard look at the Q2 view and lowered it as well. CEO Vivek Ranadive said this can be attributed to an ongoing renovation of the sales team.

This did not sit well with the analysts as the stock got at least three downgrades so far this morning, coming from Atlantic EquitiesFBN Securities, and Susequehanna.

While cutting his target price but not giving the company a downgrade, Aaron Schwartz an analyst from Jefferies & Co. says, “The sales program changes continue, which make it difficult to call a turn in the business. But we believe the company took a much more conservative approach with guidance which will bring a more aggressive reset to estimates and greater margin for error.” Schwartz still gives the company a Buy rating.
