NEW YORK,  March 4, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Today, Investors Alliance announced new research reports highlighting Juniper
Networks, Inc. (NYSE:JNPR), Cisco Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ:CSCO), Nokia Corporation
(NYSE:NOK), Corning Incorporated (NYSE:GLW) and Harris Corporation (NYSE:HRS).
Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price
targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Juniper Networks, Inc. Research Report

Juniper Networks is considering making acquisitions to strengthen its security
and enterprise business to ready itself for a possible sale or spinoff,
according to a report from Reuters. This comes after talks to sell some assets,
including security unit NetScreen Technologies, fell through last year. The
telecommunications equipment maker failed to attract buyers, including storage
provider EMC, on reasons that its enterprise-oriented assets "lacked innovation
and growth." However, no investment banks have been hired to assist the review,
but Goldman Sachs is most likely to emerge as top candidate considering their
history. In other news, Juniper has been chosen by  Ping An  bank to supply
QFX3500 Switches to deliver a low-latency network addressing the need for
high-performance business processing and virtual host support. The Full Research
Report on Juniper Networks, Inc. - including full detailed breakdown, analyst
ratings and price targets - is available to download free of charge at:

Cisco Systems, Inc. Research Report

Cisco Systems acquired  Israel-based privately held Intucell, a provider of
advanced self-optimizing network software, for  $475 million  in cash and
retention-based incentives. In addition, Intucell employees will be integrated
into Cisco's Service Provider Mobility Group, which enables mobile carriers to
plan, configure, manage, optimize, and heal cellular networks automatically,
according to real-time changing network demands. This adds a network
intelligence layer to manage and optimize spectrum, and coverage and capacity.
The Street rates the company as a "buy," citing strengths in earnings per share,
net income, revenue, and debt. The Full Research Report on Cisco Systems, Inc. -

Nokia Corporation Research Report

Nokia has found another corporate customer in Coca-Cola, supplying  Nokia Lumia 
smartphones in select sales forces in its  Vietnam  and  Cambodia  businesses.
The devices will be used by sales associates in those markets for order
processing, equipment validation and market execution improvement. In other
news, Nokia's shares went up  20 cents  or 5.6 percent at  $3.77  after Argus
Research upgraded its rating on the stock to "buy" with a new price target of 
$6. The analysts say the company's economical phones could make a difference for
it, particularly the lower and mid-level Lumia smartphones, the Lumia 520 and
720 they unveiled at the recently concluded Mobile World Congress in  Barcelona,
Spain. The Full Research Report on Nokia Corporation - including full detailed

Corning Incorporated Research Report

Corning, which also has interests in glass and ceramics, is set to acquire
Abengoa's Brazilian subsidiary, Bargoa S.A., a leading provider of connectivity
solutions for the Brazilian telecommunications sector, which is expected to be
completed by the end of the second quarter in 2013. The acquisition will bolster
the company's telecom activities in the Latin American region, building on
Bargoa's strong brand, high-quality manufacturing, and flexible design
capabilities. However, the agreement is still subject to certain conditions,
including approval by  Brazil's  competition authorities. On Abengoa's part, the
move will steer towards its core business of innovative technology solutions for
sustainable development in the energy and environment sectors. The Full Research

data and services. Another 10 companies were also awarded contracts to supply
