11:14 EDTAAPLGoPro rebounds after analysts downplay Apple patent worries
Shares of action camera maker GoPro (GPRO) are recovering some of the ground they lost yesterday, after two research firms wrote that the stock's decline yesterday on worries about an Apple (AAPL) patent were overdone. WHAT'S NEW: Noting that a report circulated yesterday that Apple received a patent for a wearable camera, Barclays wrote that the 11% decline in GoPro's stock yesterday was an overreaction. Although Apple's patent envisions a product similar to GoPro's camera, and Apple's entrance into the market would be "a headline grabber," there's a big difference between being awarded a patent and entering a market, the firm believes. Apple is often awarded patents for products that it never launches, Barclays explained. Moreover, GoPro has a number of attributes that could enable it to maintain its leadership in the market despite new competitors, Barclays believes. Among these attributes are the company's user base, software functionality, and ability to keep a technological edge, Barclays stated. The firm kept a $60 price target and Neutral rating on the shares. Even more upbeat was JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna. After reviewing Apple's patent, the analyst thinks the document "hints" that the camera is primarily meant to be installed on smart watches and smartphones. Apple is unlikely to enter the action camera market, the analyst believes. Moreover, many companies are trying to imitate GoPro's cameras, but none have been able to match GoPro's quality in brand energy, performance, range of uses, and/or software and social networking value, Gauna stated. He recommended that investors buy GoPro on weakness and reiterated a $105 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, GoPro rose $2.72, or 5.5%, to $52.59. GoPro shares had declined a bit over 12% yesterday after the Patently Apple blog reported on the Apple's patent.

05:28 EDTAAPLEricsson files complaint against Apple in U.S. District Court
Following Apple's (AAPL) action, Ericsson (ERIC) has filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Texas requesting a ruling on Ericsson's proposed global licensing fees with Apple. During the past two years of negotiations, the companies have not been able to reach an agreement on licensing of Ericsson's patents that enable Apple's mobile devices to connect with the world and power many of their applications. Ericsson filed the suit in order to receive an independent assessment on whether Ericsson's global licensing offer complies with Ericsson's fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory, or FRAND, commitment. The global license agreement between Ericsson and Apple for mobile technology has expired and Apple has declined to take a new license on offered FRAND terms. Ericsson's Q4 IPR revenue will include payment from Apple under previous agreement. Every Apple smartphone and tablet with cellular capability uses technology from Ericsson. On January 12, Apple filed a lawsuit asking the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California to find that it does not infringe a small subset of Ericsson's patents.
