16:23 EDTADTOn The Fly: Top stock stories for Tuesday
Stocks began the session in negative territory and remained there throughout the entire session. The early weakness was attributed to oil prices, which were down early and never recovered during the day. The losses of more than 5% brings the loss over the past two days to more than 10%, pushing WTI crude back below $30 a barrel and squashing equities in the process. Any hope that oil prices would de-couple from stock prices will have to wait another day as the two continue to move in lockstep with each other. Even a solid earnings report from tech bellwether Alphabet (GOOG) could not help the market. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the economic calendar was quiet. In Europe, statistics agency Eurostat reported that unemployment across the eurozone decreased by 49,000 to a total of 16.75M in December dropping the unemployment rate to its lowest since September 2011 at 10.4%. In central bank news, the Reserve Bank of Australia and Reserve Bank of India both held their benchmark interest rates steady, as expected. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Alphabet (GOOGL) advanced 1.3% to $780.91 after its better than expected quarterly results were followed by analysts around Wall Street hiking their price targets for shares, including Deutsche Bank analyst Ross Sandler, who raised his target on the parent of Google to $1,080 from $900... Exxon Mobil (XOM) reported better than expected revenue and profits in the fourth quarter, but its shares slid 2.2% to $74.61 amid the renewed weakness in oil prices. Shares of fellow oil major BP (BP) plunged 8.5% to $29.02 in New York trading after reporting a steep quarterly loss, largely due to $2.6B in charges related to impairments of Upstream assets as well as restructuring... Ford (F) shares fell 4.6% after the company reporting that its U.S. sales declined 3% last month versus a year ago. Peer General Motors (GM) slid 1.5% after reporting that its U.S. sales grew 0.5% in January... Dow Chemical (DOW) jumped 5.75% to $45.03 after posting better than expected earnings and revenue. Of note, Dow CEO Andrew Liveris said he plans to transition out of the company when it completes its planned merger with DuPont (DD). MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers were Michael Kors (KORS) and Mattel (MAT), which rose nearly 24% and almost 14%, respectively, following their earnings reports. Also higher was Pacific Biosciences (PACB), which jumped 24% to $12.67 after Reuters said Roche (RHHBY) has recently approached the company to discuss a potential acquisition. Among the noteworthy losers following earnings were Integrated Device (IDTI), which fell 26.8%, ADT (ADT), which dropped 15.7%, and Royal Caribbean (RCL), which declined 15.2%. INDEXES: The Dow fell 295.64, or 1.8%, to 16,153.54, the Nasdaq lost 103.42, or 2.24%, to 4,516.95, and the S&P 500 declined 36.35, or 1.87%, to 1,903.03.

10:31 EDTAMBAGoPro slides after analysts predict guidance this week will disappoint
Research firm Piper Jaffray and Citi predicted that GoPro's (GPRO) revenue guidance would disappoint investors when the company issues its earnings report later this week. GoPro preannounced lower than expected fourth quarter revenue on January 13. The company is expected to announce the remainder of its results, including first quarter guidance, on February 3. STREET LOW TARGET: Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy cut her price target on GoPro to $7.50 from $9, citing updated spending assumptions. The analyst expects the company's Q1 sales guidance to come in at $272M, below the Street's consensus estimate of $298M. Murphy cut her Q1 EPS estimate for the company to 0c from 10c, and warned that the company could report a Q1 loss if its "sales remain tepid." She kept an Underweight rating, the firm's equivalent of a "Sell," on the shares. GoPro's channel inventory was probably too high at the end of last quarter, and the company likely has about $200M of inventory, Citi analyst Jeremy David estimated. Given the company's "challenging sell-through" and probable inventory reductions by channel sellers, its Q1 guidance will probably come in below expectations, according to David. Specifically, GoPro will provide guidance of a 20c to 25c per share loss and its revenue guidance will come in at $230M-$250M, the analyst believes. The consensus forecast, based on the predictions of sixteen analysts, is for GoPro to report a loss of 5c per share in Q1, according to First Call. David predicted that the shares would be range bound in February and March, but he added that the stock could drop below $9. Later on this year, the stock could rise modestly as the launches of the company's new Karma and HERO5 cameras approach, said the analyst, who kept a $12 price target and Neutral rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, GoPro fell 6% to $10.75. Shares of supplier Ambarella (AMBA), which has often moved in tandem with GoPro in the past, slipped 5%.
