11:33 EDTS, VZ, TSprint announces launch of LTE Plus network
In celebration of the launch of its new LTE Plus network, Sprint (S) is introducing the biggest wireless offer in U.S. history - 50% off the price of most Verizon (VZ), AT&T (T) and T-Mobile (TMUS) rate plans, the company says. New customers can sign up for this offer nationwide Nov. 20 through Jan. 7, 2016. LTE Plus, available today in 77 major markets, takes advantage of Sprint's rich triband spectrum portfolio, and it uses some of the world's most advanced technologies in wireless, such as carrier aggregation and antenna beamforming. Customers who switch get 50 percent off most current rate plan prices from their current carrier. AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon customers switching to Sprint also can take advantage of iPhone Forever, where they are eligible to upgrade every time a new iPhone launches. Customers must port one line, and can add up to 9 additional lines on the account. Customers must choose from the 50 percent off rate plans available from their current carrier. Cricket and MetroPCS customers also can switch and save 50 percent off their parent company's postpaid rates. 50 percent off pricing remains valid until Jan. 8, 2018, for activations between Nov. 20, 2015, and Jan. 7, 2016.

Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy cut her price target for GoPro (GPRO) shares to $15 after her channel checks indicated further price pressure. The stock closed yesterday down 75c to $20.87. In the last week, GoPro products have been offered on various flash sale websites including making its debut on Liberty Interactive's (QVCA) Zulily yesterday, Murphy tells investors in a research note. She has also seen further price pressure on Amazon (AMZN). The action camera maker will have a difficult time maintaining current margin expectations with price reductions becoming more evident, Murphy argues. She is "incrementally cautious" on GoPro into the holiday season and keeps an Underweight rating on the name.
