06:00 EDTGOOGGoogle discusses Identity Platform on developer blog
On its Developer Blog, Google discusses its new Identity Platform, a suite of developer tools hat let others build "frictionless" entry to name-brand sites via the Smart Lock password manager. Google comments, "With Smart Lock for Passwords, you get frictionless sign-in and sign-up into apps on Android and sites in Chrome with any account. Users will get automatically signed-in across devices. In turn, you reduce the risk of forgotten user passwords and missed conversion opportunities when users get frustrated trying to sign in or move on to another activity. Identity Toolkit gives you a robust, secure authentication system in a box that helps you do sign-in the right way, no matter what account your users want to use. The toolkit gives you password authentication, in addition to federated sign-in with major identity providers." Reference Link

The IDC said PC shipments will decline by 6.2% in 2015 and will be the fourth consecutive year of falling volume, reports DigiTimes.

10:55 EDTGOOGGoPro rises after confirming plans to enter drone, VR markets
Shares of GoPro (GPRO) are rising after the action camera maker confirmed it is developing a camera array for virtual reality filming and is also making its own drone for consumers. WHAT'S NEW: GoPro is developing a product that can create video which can be viewed on virtual reality headsets, GoPro CEO Nick Woodman said at the Code Conference, according to Re/code. Called a Six-Camera Spherical Array, the device uses six of GoPro's Hero4 cameras and a product from Kolor, a virtual reality software company GoPro acquired in April. GoPro is also building its own drone geared to consumers, Woodman said, according to Re/code. However, the company will continue to provide cameras to other drone makers, the website noted. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy said that GoPro's virtual reality product should be available in the second half of this year and cost $500-$1,500. The drone is expected to be available in the first half of next year and is likely to be sold for $500-$2,500, the analyst stated. GoPro's expansion into the drone and virtual reality markets could undermine bears' contention that GoPro's total available market is low, according to Murphy. Drones and virtual reality should have total available markets of over $5B by 2020 and over $65B by 2025, respectively, estimated the analyst, who kept a $68 price target and Overweight rating on GoPro. Meanwhile, Stifel analyst Jim Duffy wrote that the virtual reality product will have only a minimal impact on GoPro's results in 2015 and 2016. However, the drone offering could increase its 2016 earnings per share by 20c-30c if it is launched in the beginning of the year, according to Duffy, who kept a Hold rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors yesterday, well-known Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster called virtual reality and augmented reality "the next mega tech themes through 2030." Users will be able to enjoy gaming, live sports, concerts, "immersive cinema," and social experiences using virtual reality, he predicted. Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG,GOOGL) and Apple (AAPL) are likely to benefit from this trend, Munster believes. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, GoPro climbed nearly 8% to $57.43.
