Goldman Sachs Downgrades TIBCO (TIBX) to Sell

January 7, 2008

I was looking at some of my favorite CEP companies this morning and noticed that Goldman Sachs analyst Derek Bingham just downgraded vendor TIBCO Software (TIBX) to Sell.

According to Bingham, here,

… customers will move away from buying more expensive “best-of-breed” offerings, like Tibco”s products, and more toward buying less expensive “good enough” substitutes that are bundled with broader solutions from the likes of IBM, Oracle Corp. and SAP AG.

At the time of this post, TIBCO was down around 5 percent in premarket trading.
