10:55 EDTGOOG, FBGoPro rises after confirming plans to enter drone, VR markets
Shares of GoPro (GPRO) are rising after the action camera maker confirmed it is developing a camera array for virtual reality filming and is also making its own drone for consumers. WHAT'S NEW: GoPro is developing a product that can create video which can be viewed on virtual reality headsets, GoPro CEO Nick Woodman said at the Code Conference, according to Re/code. Called a Six-Camera Spherical Array, the device uses six of GoPro's Hero4 cameras and a product from Kolor, a virtual reality software company GoPro acquired in April. GoPro is also building its own drone geared to consumers, Woodman said, according to Re/code. However, the company will continue to provide cameras to other drone makers, the website noted. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy said that GoPro's virtual reality product should be available in the second half of this year and cost $500-$1,500. The drone is expected to be available in the first half of next year and is likely to be sold for $500-$2,500, the analyst stated. GoPro's expansion into the drone and virtual reality markets could undermine bears' contention that GoPro's total available market is low, according to Murphy. Drones and virtual reality should have total available markets of over $5B by 2020 and over $65B by 2025, respectively, estimated the analyst, who kept a $68 price target and Overweight rating on GoPro. Meanwhile, Stifel analyst Jim Duffy wrote that the virtual reality product will have only a minimal impact on GoPro's results in 2015 and 2016. However, the drone offering could increase its 2016 earnings per share by 20c-30c if it is launched in the beginning of the year, according to Duffy, who kept a Hold rating on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors yesterday, well-known Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster called virtual reality and augmented reality "the next mega tech themes through 2030." Users will be able to enjoy gaming, live sports, concerts, "immersive cinema," and social experiences using virtual reality, he predicted. Facebook (FB), Google (GOOG,GOOGL) and Apple (AAPL) are likely to benefit from this trend, Munster believes. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, GoPro climbed nearly 8% to $57.43.

The European Union is looking into whether Facebook unfairly favors its own services, the region’s top court will issue a preliminary decision next month on whether Facebook can continue transferring user data between Europe and the U.S. and a number of EU data protection watchdogs are questioning Facebook’s privacy settings, the report noted.

Morgan Stanley is more cautious on PC names near-term, given PC and HDD inventory builds quarter-to-date and weaker April ODM sales. The firm's analyst team continues to believe Q1 was a bottom in year-over-year growth, but now expects normal Q2 seasonal growth instead of above normal and thinks any recovery will likely be delayed until Q3. Morgan Stanley is cautiously optimistic on Western Digital (WDC) due to its diverse revenue drivers, sees value creation catalysts for Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) and believes Microsoft (MSFT) shares reflect the challenging PC market and Win 10. The firm is more cautious on semis such as NVIDIA (NVDA) given higher valuations, share loss at Advanced Micro (AMD), potential 2H margin pressure at Intel (INTC), and Morgan is cautious on PC DRAM stocks near-term due to weaker pricing.

In a lawsuit filed Monday with the United States District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco, Virginia technology company MicroTech accuses Hewlett Packard and the software maker it now owns, Autonomy, of unfairly taking advantage by refusing to return $16.5M in cash paid to Autonomy for software never delivered in a fashion where it could be re-sold. During a national telephonic press conference, Lanny J. Davis, a Washington, D.C. attorney advising MicroTech, described the core allegation in the breach of contract case filed against HP: "Regardless of whether HP was defrauded by Autonomy, or whether HP's over-payment for Autonomy was a product of a possible due diligence failure, in my opinion, HP is not entitled to keep both MicroTech's money AND Autonomy's software that MicroTech duly purchased," Davis said.

11:47 EDTGOOGAmazon unlikely hurt by Google Buy button in next 3 years, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Google's (GOOG) addition of a "Buy" button for mobile e-commerce hurting Amazon.com (AMZN) over the next 1 to 3 years, but he does believe Google's plan presents a longer-term threat to "chip away" at Amazon's growth rate. However, Munster thinks it will be "next to impossible" for Google to replicate Amazon's core infrastructure and customer experience and he keeps an Overweight rating and $475 price target on Amazon shares.

Citigroup believes HP's Q2 revenue on May 21 could miss the consensus expectation of $25.8B due to PC weakness and currency pressure. Citi thinks sales weakness is largely expected, however. The firm says HP shares "will start to work again" as management will likely address and quantify the additional costs of operating as two separate companies. Uncertainty around the size of the dis-synergy costs has been a key factor behind the stock's recent underperformance, Citi believes. It keeps a Buy rating on HP with a $41 price target.
