10:38 EDTGRMNGarmin advances after Citigroup upgrades rating on shares
Shares of Garmin (GRMN) are climbing after Citigroup upgraded its rating on the stock, citing what it sees as the positive outlook for the company's new fitness activity monitor, vivofit. WHAT'S NEW: Garminís new product for fitness enthusiasts, vivofit, is likely to become a hit, Citigroup analyst Jeremy David wrote. The product, which is worn on the wrist, tracks the number of steps, distance traveled, and calories burned of its users, according to the company. vivofit has a reasonable price, and it is the only wrist-based activity monitor whose battery lasts one year or more, David reported. Garmin can be number one or number two in the activity monitor market over the next six months, the analyst predicted. A competing product, the Force activity monitor, had to be recalled as a number of users complained that it caused their wrists to become irritated, the analyst noted. Garmin's vivofit is likely to fill the vacuum created by Force's problems, the analyst predicted. David increased his 2014 revenue estimate for the company by $98M to $2.73B. Analysts' consensus estimate is $2.64B. He raised his 2014 earnings per share estimate for the company to $2.77 from $2.54. Analysts' consensus estimate is $2.61. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Garmin rose $1.60, or 3%, to $56.

08:48 EDTGRMNGarmin unlikely to be derailed by Apple Watch, says Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer does not view Apple Watch as "a category killer" in the running or fitness band markets. The firm says that the necessity of pairing the Apple Watch with an iPhone, along with Apple Watch's use of a built-in optical hear rate sensor which is likely to be prone to malfunction are disadvantages. Additionally, Apple Watch's price is much higher than the prices that Garmin (GRMN) charges for its watches, while the Apple Watch's battery life is likely much shorter, according to Oppenheimer. The firm keeps an Outperform rating on Garmin.
