17:05 EDTAYI, TWTR, GEVA, RGEN, NFLX, SNY, GPROOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street were higher but the Dow will need to wait at least one more session before eclipsing 17,000 for the first time. The bluechip average, along with the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq, began the trading day in positive territory and remained there for the entire session. Following manufacturing reports from around the globe that were released today, investors will now be keying in on the week's big economic event, which is the U.S. monthly nonfarm payrolls report due Thursday. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., Markit's manufacturing purchasing managers' index for June had a final reading of 57.3, which was a hair below the 57.5 flash estimate but up from May's 56.4 reading. ISM's manufacturing index slipped very slightly to 55.3 in June from May's 55.4 figure. Construction spending increased 0.1% in May, missing the forecast for 0.5% growth. In China, HSBC's PMI reading came in at 50.7, which was a bit below the flash reading but above the 50 mark that indicates expansion for the first time since December. In Europe, Markit's final eurozone manufacturing PMI for June came in at 51.8, which was down from 52.2 in the prior month and below the earlier flash estimate of 51.9, but still indicated expansion in the sector. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Netflix (NFLX) climbed $32.50, or 7.38%, to $473.10 after Goldman Sachs upgraded the stock in a note to investors earlier today, predicting that Netflix's total worldwide market will more than double over the next three years and its subscriber growth will continue to exceed expectations... Twitter (TWTR) rose $1.08, or 2.64%, to $42.05 after hiring Anthony Noto as its new Chief Financial Officer. Noto served as a Managing Director in the Technology, Media and Telecom group at Goldman Sachs (GS), which had handled the social network's IPO, and prior to that had served as the CFO of the National Football League. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was GoPro (GPRO), which rose another $8.25, or 20.35%, to $48.80 in its fourth trading session since its IPO last Thursday. The action camera maker has advanced an incredible 66.78% since its IPO priced at $24.00 per share. Also higher was Regeneron (REGN), which advanced $20.92, or 7.41%, to $303.39 after Sanofi (SNY) disclosed in a regulatory filing that it plans to increase its beneficial ownership stake in its smaller pharmaceutical industry peer to 22.5% from 20.5%. Among the noteworthy losers was lighting solutions maker Acuity Brands (AYI), which fell $20.63, or 14.92%, to $117.62 after its sales and profits missed expectations. Also lower were shares of Synageva BioPharma (GEVA), which tumbled $14.35, or 13.69%, to $90.45 after the company reported that its sebelipase alfa drug had met its primary endpoint in a trial, but two research firms were lukewarm about the stock's outlook. INDEXES: The Dow was up 129.47, or 0.77%, to 16,956.07, the Nasdaq was up 50.47, or 1.14%, to 4,458.65, and the S&P 500 was up 13.09, or 0.67%, to 1,973.32.

12:17 EDTGPROGoPro rises as lock-up expires
Shares of action camera maker GoPro (GPRO) are climbing as about 76M shares of the company's stock become available for sale today. WHAT'S NEW: About 76M shares of GoPro's stock became available for sale today as a lock-up related to a recent secondary offering of the company's stock expired. Lock-up agreements, a typical feature of company stock offerings, prevent certain shareholders from selling for a set amount of time after the offering. GoPro CEO Nicholas Woodman said in a regulatory filing that the company had carried out the secondary offering partly as a means of facilitating a more gradual, orderly sale of shares when the company's IPO lock-up ended last December 22. A number of larger shareholders agreed to hold onto their shares for another 90 days in order to further that goal, Woodman explained. WHAT'S NOTABLE: In a note to investors today, research firm Northland Securities initiated coverage of GoPro with an Outperform rating, saying that the company's new HERO4 camera is "demonstrating strong...momentum." Sales of the product are causing the company's gross margins and average selling price to rise, added the firm. GoPro is also poised to benefit significantly from the proliferation of its images on digital media, and from the deployment of its cameras in additional venues such as helmets and drones, according to Northland. The firm set a $70 price target on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, GoPro climbed $4.04, or 8.8%, to $49.24.
12:15 EDTGPROGoPro rallies sharply, levels to watch
The shares were initiated at Outperform at Northland with a $70 price target. This is also another lock-up expiration day, which are often volatile trading days but not necessarily consistent indicators of future performance. At the current price of $48.93, next resistance is at $50.29. Support is at $48.40.
