12:17 EDTGPROGoPro rises as lock-up expires
Shares of action camera maker GoPro (GPRO) are climbing as about 76M shares of the company's stock become available for sale today. WHAT'S NEW: About 76M shares of GoPro's stock became available for sale today as a lock-up related to a recent secondary offering of the company's stock expired. Lock-up agreements, a typical feature of company stock offerings, prevent certain shareholders from selling for a set amount of time after the offering. GoPro CEO Nicholas Woodman said in a regulatory filing that the company had carried out the secondary offering partly as a means of facilitating a more gradual, orderly sale of shares when the company's IPO lock-up ended last December 22. A number of larger shareholders agreed to hold onto their shares for another 90 days in order to further that goal, Woodman explained. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors today, research firm Northland Securities initiated coverage of GoPro with an Outperform rating, saying that the company's new HERO4 camera is "demonstrating strong...momentum." Sales of the product are causing the company's gross margins and average selling price to rise, added the firm. GoPro is also poised to benefit significantly from the proliferation of its images on digital media, and from the deployment of its cameras in additional venues such as helmets and drones, according to Northland. The firm set a $70 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, GoPro climbed $4.04, or 8.8%, to $49.24.

At the current price of $48.93, next resistance is at $50.29. Support is at $48.40.
