10:49 EDTBBRYGoPro falls after Barron's predicts 'dramatic' drop in share price
GoPro (GPRO) shares fell in morning trading after an article from Barron's argued that the company's share price may drop to as low as $25. WHAT'S NEW: Alexander Eule argued in a Barron's article that GoPro's stock price may see a "dramatic" slip of as much as 30% to $25 due to significant competitive pressure from Apple (AAPL), Sony (SNE) and others. Eule noted that the company's shares have crashed to a recent $35 after peaking at $98 in October 2014 and even called the mostly bullish analyst views on the camera maker's stock "wishful thinking." Additionally, Eule called the company's cameras a "one-product wonder" and compares them to BlackBerry (BBRY) smartphones and Palm digital organizers, which previously dominated their respective markets. The article adds that there is risk in being overly bearish on the company, since the "impressive" brand might become an acquisition target. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Last Wednesday, Citi analyst Jeremy David said that GoPro chief financial officer Jack Lazar confirmed at the bank's Global Tech Conference the week before that the Hero4 Session camera has been off to a slow start since its launch on July 12. David said that the recent selloff in the company's shares has been motivated by investor concerns about the Session. At the time, Citi cut its third quarter fiscal 2015 estimate for the company to $425M from $438M and fourth quarter estimate to $560M from $737M, $148M below consensus estimate at the time of $708M. David also said he was reducing estimates for the second half of fiscal 2015 and first quarter of fiscal 2016 as a result of downside from the Hero4 Session, but left estimates after 1Q16 unchanged, saying the long-term fundamentals of the company are "intact." The analyst added that his firm was "humbled" by the recent move in share price and acknowledged that GoPro is the "quintessential product cycle stock," though he said he remains bullish on the long-term prospects of the camera maker and reiterated a $90 price target. David argued that GoPro missing Q3 estimates and guiding below the consensus for Q4 is largely priced in. Separately, The Wall Street Journal said on September 13 that shares of GoPro were starting to look like a bargain after dropping 50% in a month. The company had a difficult time selling its Hero4 Session camera in July in the face of competition from older GoPro models, the publication added. PRICE ACTION: In morning trading, GoPro shares are down 5.15% to $33.34. OTHERS TO WATCH: Ambarella (AMBA), which supplies chips to GoPro, is down 3.7% to $68.81.

21:07 EDTINTC, BRCMDialog to acquire Atmel in move towards Internet of Things
Atmel (ATML) reached an agreement Sunday to be acquired by Dialog Semiconductor in a deal valued at approximately $4.6B, or the equivalent of $10.42 per Atmel share. Jalal Bagherli, CEO of U.K.-based Dialog, remarked that the combined company will be "a diversified, high-growth market leader" in chips for mobile devices, connected vehicles, and the Internet of Things. In a subsequent Bloomberg interview regarding the deal, Bagherli explained, "We passed the computing era, we're at the height of the mobile era, and we're about to enter the IoT era." The news comes after several semiconductor mergers in 2015 amid slowing growth and saturated markets, with Intel (INTC) agreeing in June to acquire Altera (ALTR) and Avago (AVGO) striking a deal in May for Broadcom (BRCM). Note also China's apparent desire to control companies in the space, evidenced by state-owned firms China Electronics Corp. and Tsinghua's respective pursuits of Atmel and Micron (MU).
