08:34 EDTMOSMosaic to permanently discontinue production of MOP at Carlsbad facility
Mosaic said in a filing that on July 21 it decided to permanently discontinue production of muriate of potash at its Carlsbad, New Mexico facility. The final date for production is expected to be December 31. The decision is based on the quality of the ore in the Carlsbad basin and the age of the facility's infrastructure. These combined factors make it difficult for the operations to remain competitive in an already challenging global market. The discontinuation of this product at Carlsbad is a further step in our previously announced ongoing asset optimization initiatives. Its larger potash production facilities at Esterhazy, Belle Plaine and Colonsay in Saskatchewan, Canada will continue to produce MOP.Mosaics plan for the immediate future is to transition the Carlsbad facility to the exclusive production of its highly valued K-Mag product line. K-Mag is a premium potash product that currently represents approximately 70% of production at the Carlsbad facility and is a long-term strategic asset for us.We currently estimate that the discontinued production will result in total pre-tax charges in the range of $135M-$160M. The third quarter pre-tax charges are estimated to be in the range of $55M-$77M with the majority of the remainder expected to be recorded in the fourth quarter.

10:45 EDTBBYAnalysts roll out coverage on GoPro with differing views
Shares of GoPro (GPRO) are climbing after a number of analysts initiated coverage of the stock with different outlooks. GoPro develops mountable and wearable cameras. BULLISH TAKE: JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster initiated coverage of GoPro with an Overweight rating. GoPro is gaining share in the digital camcorder market, and it has begun to penetrate "active lifestyle" markets, which are a much larger opportunity for the company, Coster believes. The company could ship 10M of its products for use by active lifestyle participants annually, the analyst estimated. In a best case scenario, the company could also sell low-cost devices for the mass market, according to Coster. However, GoPro will face competition from major companies, including Google (GOOG) and possibly Apple (AAPL) in this market, warned Coster, who set a $51 price target on GoPro. Also initiating coverage of the name with an Overweight rating was Piper Jaffray analyst Sean Naughton. GoPro is in the early stages of growth, as the company's user base is poised to expand beyond extreme sports enthusiasts, the analyst forecast. The company has a competitive advantage over other brands, which should enable it to maintain strong profitability, added Naughton, who set a $48 price target on the shares. BEARISH TAKE: Stifel analyst Jim Duffy started coverage of GoPro with a Hold rating. The company's three year growth outlook is compelling, but the stock is fully valued, the analyst believes. The company faces a number of risks, including competition in the image device market and the possibility that its relationship with key channel partners, including Best Buy (BBY), could be disrupted, the analyst wrote. Sales to Best Buy accounted for 17% of GoPro's revenue in fiscal 2013, Duffy reported. After GoPro surged following its initial public offering, the stock is likely to advance by only limited amounts, wrote Barcalys analyst Joseph Wolf, who initiated coverage of the shares with an Equal Weight rating. The stock could fall to $30 if the company is unable to increase its hardware sales or make progress in its efforts to develop a media business, the analyst warned. He set a $45 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: A total of seven analysts rolled out coverage today on GoPro, according to The Flys research, with only two recommending the stock with buy-equivalent ratings. Shares of the camera marker are up 3%, or $1.10, to $42.53 in morning trading.
