Cantor Fitzgerald raised its rating on Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD) from Hold to Buy with a reiterated $24 price target.

Cantor Fitzgerald commented, "With the announced intention to acquire OPNET, we view the company as having smartly accelerated its share of wallet strategy via a target with multiple points of synergy and view the 18% sell-off on the news as an opportunistic entry point. Moreover, we view the timing as ideal, as it helps mitigate systemic risk to 1Q:13 sub-seasonality (fiscal cliff) while lapping particularly easy comparisons through June 2013."

Riverbed Technology closed at $18.47 on Wednesday.
