12:57 EDTGRMNHigh-yield tech stocks could offer significant returns, Barron's says
Growth-focused investors have piled into Facebook (FB), Alphabet (GOOG, GOOGL), Salesforce (CRM), and others, but if the "current situation" changes, high-yield stocks with compelling valuations could grab some of the spotlight, Barron's contends in a feature story. The publication names Seagate (STX), Garmin (GRMN), Qualcomm (QCOM), Hewlett-Packard (HPQ), IBM (IBM), and Western Digital (WDC) as attractive plays, noting that their dividends -- ranging 3.2% to 7.3% -- look secure and offer nice rewards for those willing to wait for potential turnarounds or strategic transactions.

Eldorado Resorts (ERI) said it has completed the previously announced purchase of MGM Resorts International's (MGM) 50 percent interest in the Silver Legacy Resort Casino Reno, as well as the assets of Circus Circus Reno, for total consideration of $72.5 million cash plus a working capital adjustment. In addition, ERI repaid the entire outstanding balance of the Silver Legacy credit facility, which amounted to approximately $52.6 million on a net debt basis. The transaction was financed with cash on hand, cash from the escrow account established at the time of the Company's July financings and borrowings under the Company's revolving credit facility. As a result, Eldorado has withdrawn its registration statement relating to a proposed common stock offering, the proceeds of which were intended to pay a portion of the purchase price for the Circus Circus Reno and 50% interest in the Silver Legacy joint venture. The transaction increases Eldorado's property portfolio to seven wholly-owned and operated facilities in five markets with a total of approximately 10,230 slot machines and VLTs, approximately 300 table games, approximately 4,850 hotel rooms, approximately 35 dining, bar and entertainment options, three pari-mutuel racing facilities and approximately 8,000 team members.

07:16 EDTGRMNGarmin to appeal ITC judgment in Johnson Outdoors investigation
Garmin International Inc., a unit of Garmin Ltd. (GRMN), announced that the International Trade Commission issued a final determination in the investigation brought by Johnson Outdoors (JOUT) against Garmin. The ITC concluded that first generation Garmin SideVu scanning sonar products were too similar to some claims of one of the three patents asserted by Johnson Outdoors. The ITC ordered that these Garmin products be excluded from import into the United States; however, the ITC is allowing Garmin to freely import these products temporarily and further recommended that Garmin be allowed to freely import modified products permanently. The ITC found that Garmin did not infringe Johnson Outdoors' two other patents. "Garmin disagrees with the ITC and plans to appeal the determination," said Andrew Etkind, Garmin vice president and general counsel. "Nevertheless, we do not expect the ruling to have any impact on Garmin customers or products. Garmin has already modified our software to address the ITC's ruling, and we are ready to ship those products today. The ruling will have no impact on Garmin products already purchased by our customers and dealers, or any products purchased going forward."

09:02 EDTGRMNAnalyst pans competing products, says buy Fitbit
Shares of previous high-flier Fitbit (FIT) have dropped about 30% in the last two weeks following the company's third quarter earnings report, but an analyst at Bank of America upgraded his view of the fitness tracker maker this morning, saying that now is the time to buy ahead of fourth quarter results that may be boosted by the "underwhelming" new products being launched by its competitors. UNDERWHELMING COMPETITION: Fitbit's sales guidance for this holiday quarter looks conservative, contends Bank of America analyst Nat Schindler, who notes that the company only had the launch of one new product last December but will have the Charge, Charge HR and Surge to drive sales this season. Schindler also notes that the company's international advertising has expanded into more countries ahead of the holidays this year. Key, however, may be the "underwhelming" lineup of new or updated fitness trackers launched by competitors, such as the Microsoft's (MSFT) Band 2, Jawbone's UP4 and Sony's (SNE) Smartband 2, many of which have only minor improvements and no "must have" features to pull consumers away from Fitbit, Schindler told investors in his research note. PLATFORM PICKING UP STEAM: The analyst also pointed out that Fitbit now has more than 20 companies signed onto its health and wellness platform, including big names like Target (TGT) and Barclays (BCS), which he believes should help drive revenue beats in the upcoming fiscal year due to increased device sales. Also, the additional dashboard data should help Fitbit maintain long-term user engagement, said Schindler. APPLE WATCH: Apple's (AAPL) Apple Watch is largely viewed as the biggest potential competitive threat to Fitbit's offerings, but on the fitness tracker maker's last earnings call CEO James Park said Fitbit's products differ from those of its competitors in several key aspects, including pricing, cross-platform compatibility, brand awareness and product line breadth. Other wearables makers include Garmin (GRMN) and Samsung. PRICE ACTION: Since the day after Fitbit's last earnings report after the market close on November 2, its shares have fallen about 29.5% to close yesterday at $28.80. In pre-market trading this morning, Fitbit shares rose 2% to $29.40.
