10:45 EDTGOOGAnalysts 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 Fly’s 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.

GE’s Industrial Solutions business is investing $5M to strengthen its Mebane North Carolina operations, adding production and testing capabilities that enhance the customer experience. The investment builds on the company’s local footprint that was expanded in October 2013 with the grand opening of GE’s Power Equipment and Power Components global headquarters in Cary, North Carolina. The investment will enable Mebane operations to transition to a dedicated, regional customer experience center where co-located teams will work collaboratively to streamline manufacturing processes and bring new electrical distribution technologies to market. Production of GE’s automatic transfer switches for the data center market is also included in the transition, creating approximately 60 jobs and related growth to the local economy.

12:42 EDTGE, GOOGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages moved in a narrow range for most of the opening hour of the session but spurted to higher levels during the second hour. Investors appear to be using yesterday’s sell-off as a buying opportunity, despite the ongoing events in Russia and Israel that largely contributed to yesterday’s action. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The first release of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for July fell to 81.3 after ending June with an 82.5 reading. The leading economic indicator index rose 0.3% to 102.2, which was a bit below the forecast for an increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Google (GOOGL) advanced over 3% after the search giant reported quarterly revenue that beat expectations last night. Following its report, at least three Wall Street research firms raised their price targets on the stock, while noted tech analyst Collin Gillis of BGC Financial upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold... Dow component General Electric (GE) reported second quarter EPS of 39c, matching the consensus forecast, and revenue that just missed the consensus view of analysts. The company also reported that it is targeting the initial public offering of IPO of Synchrony Financial (SYF), its North American Retail Finance business, for July. In the IPO, Synchrony is offering 125M shares of its common stock, which will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SYF,” and anticipates that the IPO price of the shares will be between $23.00 and $26.00 per share... Another Dow member, IBM (IBM), fell 0.4% after reporting adjusted Q2 earnings per share and revenue that beat expectations. Afterward, Cantor said it thinks the worst is over for the company and reiterated its Buy rating on the shares, though Societe Generale downgraded IBM to Sell from Hold and Credit Suisse said IBM continues to be driven by less revenue growth and kept its Underperform rating and $160 price target on Big Blue's stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Skyworks (SWKS), which gained 14% after reporting third quarter results and fourth quarter guidance above analyst estimates and seeing no less than five analyst firms raise their price targets on its stock. Also higher was Gentiva Health (GTIV), which rose 14% after it announced that its board unanimously determined to reject the partial tender offer from Kindred Healthcare (KND) to acquire 14.9% of the outstanding shares of Gentiva for a price of $16.00 per share in cash and disclosed that it has received a $17.25 per share, all-cash takeover proposal from a "recognized owner, operator and investor in the sector." After the announcement, shares of Kindred fell 2%. Also lower following their earnings reports were RealPage (RP), which fell over 21%, and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which dropped nearly 18%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 107.05, or 0.63%, to 17,083.86, the Nasdaq was up 57.98, or 1.33%, to 4,421.43, and the S&P 500 was up 17.04, or 0.87%, to 1,975.16.
12:21 EDTGOOGCable ad upfront volumes may drop 4% or more, WSJ says
Two of the U.S.'s biggest marketers, Procter & Gamble (PG) and General Motors (GM), have pulled back on their TV network advertising commitments in advance of the "upfront" selling season for cable networks, said The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The overall volume of ad dollars committed to cable networks during the upfront, which is still under way, could be down 4% or more from last year, people familiar with the situation said. Notable owners of cable television stations include 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX), Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB), and AMC Networks (AMCX). The report added that cutbacks partly reflect a shift of tv ad budgets to digital media, including online video. Google (GOOG) has a large presence in online video with YouTube and Facebook (FB) is taking steps to grow in the area. Reference Link

The shares have traded essentially flat in the prior three months within a very narrow range. The bounds of that trading range are from $26.20 at the low to $27.53 at the high, with the bulk of the range from $26.20 to $27. Stocks that trade in such narrow ranges over this length of time are typically setting up for a break of the range and a larger move that will persist. In this case a decisive break below $26 and a breakout above $27.53 would be all that is required. If the news is more positive than expected, resistance above the range high as an upside objective would be at $28.09, the 52-week high, and then at $30.29. If the news disappoints, a break below $26 would see $24.94 and then $23.89 as next supports.

13:18 EDTGEEarnings Preview: General Electric shares little changed since Q1 report
General Electric (GE) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Friday, July 18 before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. General Electric is a globally diversified technology and financial services company serving customers in more than 100 countries. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of 39c on revenue of $36.3B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is 38c-40c on revenue of $35.99B-$36.72B. LAST QUARTER: General Electric reported first quarter adjusted EPS of 33c against estimates for 32c on revenue of $34.18B against estimates for $34.36B. CEO Jeff Immelt said, “We’re off to a good start to the year, and our 2014 framework remains unchanged. The environment is consistent with our expectations, with a positive bias.” During GE’s Q1 earnings call, management said the U.S. market gets "a little better every day," and Europe is improving. They said there was some improvement in demand for credit in Q1. They noted the company was on track to reduce share count in 2014, and on track to achieve its margin goal in 2016. The company expected to make gains from divestitures in its industrial portfolio. In June, GE finalized a deal to purchase the Power and Grid businesses of Alstom (ALSMY), after fending off rivals Siemens (SIEGY) and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been light in the weeks leading up to GE's Q2 earnings report. On May 12, Barclays upgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry sector to Positive from Neutral. The firm's data indicated that Fed policy had extended the cycle, driving up capital spending and corporate confidence. PRICE ACTION: GE shares traded marginally higher following its Q1 report, but currently sit at approximately the same level as they did three months ago. Over the past twelve months, the stock has gained about 13%. In early afternoon trading ahead of tomorrow's Q2 report, GE shares are down almost 1% to $26.76.
12:52 EDTGOOGEarnings Preview: Google shares up 4.5% since last earnings report
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 17 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Google is a global technology company that focuses on Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $6.24 on revenue of $15.62B. The consensus range is $5.73-$6.64 for EPS, and $15.36B-$15.94B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Google reported first quarter EPS of $6.27 against estimates of $16.40 on revenue of $15.42B against estimates of $15.52B. Google reported Q1 paid clicks up 26% and average cost-per-click decreased 9%. The company also reported Q1 Sites revenue $10.47B and Q1 Network revenue $3.4B. Google said it expects to continue to make "significant capital expenditures" and reported free cash flow in Q1 of $2.05B. NEWS: Google announced several acquisitions in the past quarter, most notably for music streaming service Songza, live video-streaming service Twitch, and high-res imaging satellite maker Skybox Imaging. The company also expanded Shopping Express to New York and other parts of California, including Los Angeles. There were also reports that Google has set aside $500M to expand the service worldwide. Bloomberg reported the company intends to spend a "significant portion" of its offshore cash to make acquisitions with nearly $20B-$30B on foreign companies and foreign technology rights. Google also entered the domain registration business through an invite-only beta website, may likely overhaul Google+ in the near future, and is said to be developing a 7-inch tablet that can capture 3D images. At Google's I/O opening keynote in June, the company said Android had over 1B users, Chrome for Mobile had 300M active users and Google Drive has over 190M active users. STREET RESEARCH: Cantor said the company's revenue growth relative to CapEx has declined in the past several years as it has spent less efficiently on growth than its peers. Susquehanna, on the other hand, said Google's recent underperformance has created a buying opportunity due to favorite mix shift and strong core growth at Google.com and YouTube. Ahead of the Q2 earnings report, Google's price target was also raised at Citigroup after channel checks with search marketing companies suggested the business accelerated slightly in Q2. PRICE ACTION: Google shares have risen 4.5% since the first day of trading following the company's Q1 report. In Wednesday afternoon trading ahead of Q2 report, Google shares are down a little over 1.5%.
