10:45 EDTBBYAnalysts roll out coverage on GoPro with differing views
Shares of GoPro (GPRO) are climbing after a number of analysts initiated coverage of the stock with different outlooks. GoPro develops mountable and wearable cameras. BULLISH TAKE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster initiated coverage of GoPro with an Overweight rating. GoPro is gaining share in the digital camcorder market, and it has begun to penetrate "active lifestyle" markets, which are a much larger opportunity for the company, Coster believes. The company could ship 10M of its products for use by active lifestyle participants annually, the analyst estimated. In a best case scenario, the company could also sell low-cost devices for the mass market, according to Coster. However, GoPro will face competition from major companies, including Google (GOOG) and possibly Apple (AAPL) in this market, warned Coster, who set a $51 price target on GoPro. Also initiating coverage of the name with an Overweight rating was Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Naughton. GoPro is in the early stages of growth, as the company's user base is poised to expand beyond extreme sports enthusiasts, the analyst forecast. The company has a competitive advantage over other brands, which should enable it to maintain strong profitability, added Naughton, who set a $48 price target on the shares. BEARISH TAKE: Stifel analyst Jim Duffy started coverage of GoPro with a Hold rating. The company's three year growth outlook is compelling, but the stock is fully valued, the analyst believes. The company faces a number of risks, including competition in the image device market and the possibility that its relationship with key channel partners, including Best Buy (BBY), could be disrupted, the analyst wrote. Sales to Best Buy accounted for 17% of GoPro's revenue in fiscal 2013, Duffy reported. After GoPro surged following its initial public offering, the stock is likely to advance by only limited amounts, wrote Barcalys analyst Joseph Wolf, who initiated coverage of the shares with an Equal Weight rating. The stock could fall to $30 if the company is unable to increase its hardware sales or make progress in its efforts to develop a media business, the analyst warned. He set a $45 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: A total of seven analysts rolled out coverage today on GoPro, according to The Flyís research, with only two recommending the stock with buy-equivalent ratings. Shares of the camera marker are up 3%, or $1.10, to $42.53 in morning trading.

16:22 EDTRKUSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher today, but were still lower for the week, as concerns in Europe have come back to the forefront of investors' minds. Today's modest bounce was not enough to make up for the declines seen in three of the other four sessions earlier in the week. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the June federal budget statement showed a surplus of $70.5B for the month, compared to analysts' forecast for a $79B surplus. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Wells Fargo (WFC) slipped 32c, or 0.62%, to $51.49 after the largest mortgage lender in the U.S. posted earnings of $1.01 a share that matched analysts' consensus forecast. Wells did note that its credit performance continued to improve in Q2 and CEO John Stumpf said he is "optimistic about the future" for the bank... Lorillard (LO) advanced $2.92, or 4.63%, to $66.01, while Reynolds American fell 51c, or 0.82%, to $61.75, after the two cigarette makers confirmed that they are holding talks about a possible merger, as has been speculated by various media reports in recent weeks... In another update to an ongoing M&A story, Japan's Nikkei reported that Sprint's (S) corporate parent, Softbank (SFTBF), has reached an agreement to acquire T-Mobile (TMUS) from Deutsche Telecom (DTEGY), clearing the way for the long-speculated merger between the third and fourth largest wireless carriers in the U.S. Following the new story, Sprint shares finished the day up 30c, or 3.64%, to $8.55, while T-Mobile rose 62c, or 1.89%, to $33.50. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Ruckus Wireless (RKUS), which advanced 87c, or 7.9%, to $11.88 after the FCC announced that it would allocate new funds to subsidize the launch of WiFi networks in schools and libraries. Also higher was Amazon.com (AMZN), which climbed $18.28, or 5.57%, to $346.20 after consulting firm ChannelAdvisor (ECOM) reported that the company's same-store sales growth had accelerated significantly in June compared with May. Among the noteworthy losers was Rent-A-Center (RCII), which dropped $3.18, or 10.94%, to $25.88 after the company warned that its revenue and earnings for Q2 will not meet expectations. Also lower were shares of industrial and construction supply retailer Fastenal (FAST), which fell $2.00, or 4.16%, to $46.15 after its Q2 revenue missed analysts' consensus view and the company reported plans to close 45 stores. INDEXES: The Dow was up 28.74, or 0.17%, to 16,943.81, the Nasdaq was up 19.29, or 0.44%, to 4,415.49, and the S&P 500 was up 2.83, or 0.14%, to 1,967.51.
14:15 EDTRKUSRuckus, Aruba advance after FCC approves new school WiFi program
Shares of Ruckus Wireless (RKUS) and Aruba Networks (ARUN) are rising after the FCC announced that it would allocate new funds to subsidize the launch of WiFi networks in schools and libraries. Ruckus and Aruba provide products used for WiFi networks. WHAT'S NEW: The FCC said it would allocate $2B over the next two years to subsidize the launch of WiFi connections at schools and libraries. For the following three years, the agency said it would look to spend $1B annually on the project. The FCC said the funds would be "distributed fairly to all schools and libraries while recognizing the needs of the nationís rural and poorest school districts." PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Ruckus surged 5.5% to $11.62 and Aruba advanced 4.6% to $17.04.
13:17 EDTRKUSFCC approves $2B fund for school Wi-Fi, Re/code reports
The Federal Communications Commission voted to approve a plan whereby schools will soon be able to apply for grants from a $2B fund to help pay for Wi-Fi networks, reported Re/code.

07:32 EDTFSTForest Oil amends merger agreement with Sabine Oil & Gas
Forest Oil announced that it has reached an agreement with Sabine Oil & Gas to amend their previously announced merger agreement to protect the interests of their respective shareholders. The revised transaction structure does not change the economic terms of the transaction. Upon completion, current Forest shareholders will own approximately 26.5% of the economic interest in the combined businesses of Forest and Sabine Oil & Gas, the same as under the original merger agreement. Under the terms of the amended merger agreement, Forest and Sabine Oil & Gas will combine their businesses through a revised transaction structure, where Sabine Investor Holdings, and a related investment entity, the owners of Sabine Oil & Gas, will contribute their interests in Sabine Oil & Gas to Forest, in exchange for the issuance to the Sabine Investor Entities of common and preferred stock in Forest. As a result of the contribution and stock issuance, Sabine Oil & Gas will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Forest, the Sabine Investor Entities will hold common and preferred shares representing an aggregate 73.5% economic interest in Forest and the existing Forest common shareholders will hold an aggregate 26.5% economic interest in Forest. The 73.5% / 26.5% economic interest allocation is the same as under the original merger agreement. The revised transaction structure is not expected to have any impact on the treatment of the existing indebtedness of Forest and Sabine Oil & Gas, as compared to the original transaction structure. The combined entity will still be headquartered in Houston, Texas, and will be led by Sabineís current executive management team. The transaction is expected to be completed in 4Q14.
