11:14 EDTGPROGoPro 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.

16:24 EDTGPROOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
The Wall Street averages spent time in both positive and negative territory during the session, before closing a bit below where they'd started the day. The market opened sharply higher after Alcoa’s (AA) better than expected report gave some optimism about the upcoming earnings season. The early move higher came despite oil continuing its slide. The major averages saw their highs shortly after the open and then began to drift slowly lower. By mid-afternoon the market was in the red, though the equity averages eventually made it briefly back into positive ground, but failed to hold those narrow gains into the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NFIB small business optimism index for December came in at 100.4, which was stronger than the expected 98.5 reading. The JOLTS report showed job openings increased 142K to 4.972M in November, beating the 4.85M consensus forecast. Treasury posted a $1.9B surplus in December, which was a bit below the expected surplus of $3B. Also of note is the fact that the U.S. and European benchmarks of WTI and Brent crude were at parity for the first time since 2013 during the session, with both trading near $46 per barrel for a time. COMPANY NEWS: KB Home (KBH) reported better than expected revenue and higher orders in its fourth quarter, but the stock declined $2.70, or 16.29%, to $13.87 after CEO Jeffrey Mezger warned on the associated earnings call that margins could drop "significantly" in its current quarter from the levels seen last year. KB's margin outlook, which it blamed on rising costs, heavier use of incentives and a sequential decline in average selling prices, dragged down peers in the housing space as well. D.R. Horton (DHI), the biggest homebuilder by market cap, finished the day down $1.26, or 4.83%, to $24.82, while PulteGroup (PHM) also slid $56c, or 2.47%, to $22.13... MetLife (MET) said it will sue to oppose the U.S. Financial Stability Oversight Council’s designation of the insurer as a SIFI, or "systemically important financial institution." The life insurer called the label premature and said it has offered “substantial and compelling evidence” that it isn’t a SIFI. Wells Fargo said it thinks it is appropriate for MetLife to challenge the ruling, though the firm does not presently see a Dodd-Frank provision that enables an entity to shed its designation. Wells added that a MetLife victory would have no impact on either AIG (AIG) or Prudential (PRU), which did not challenge their SIFI designations before their windows closed. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Emulex (ELX), which rose $1.21, or 20.86%, to $7.01 after the company issued better than expected guidance on its second quarter results. Also higher was McGraw Hill Financial (MHFI), which jumped $5.13, or 5.98%, to $90.89 after reports said the company's Standard & Poor’s rating unit was in talks about a potential $1B settlement to its fight with the Justice Department and state attorneys general over allegations of inflating credit ratings on mortgage investments preceding the financial crisis. Among the noteworthy losers was ChannelAdvisor (ECOM), which plunged $11.32, or 53.52%, to $9.83 after its fourth quarter revenue warning prompted no less than eight downgrades of the stock by Street analysts. Also lower were shares of Ocwen Financial (OCN), which dropped $4.41, or 36.18%, to $7.78 after the Los Angeles Times reported that California is seeking to suspend the company's mortgage license in the state. Altisource Portfolio Solutions (ASPS), which is a related company to Ocwen, also declined $10.45, or 38.79%, to $16.49. Shares of GoPro (GPRO) fell $6.91, or 12.17%, to $49.87 after the Patently Apple blog reported that Apple (AAPL) was granted a patent for a camera system that specifically mentions the weaknesses of GoPro devices. INDEXES: The Dow fell 27.16, or 0.15%, to 17,613.68, the Nasdaq lost 3.21, or 0.07%, to 4,661.50, and the S&P 500 dropped 5.23, or 0.26%, to 2,023.03.
