What: Shares of network optimization specialist Riverbed Technology
So what: Analysts at Lazard
Now what: Should you jump on Riverbed's stock because of these bullish research notes? Probably not. At least, not solely because of them. Wall Street views like these can be a good reason to take a closer look at a stock, but Foolish investors are best served by digging in with some of their own research to confirm the views or find complimentary reasons to be a buyer.
