17:05 EDTSNY, GPRO, AYI, TWTR, GEVA, RGEN, NFLXOn 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.

10:23 EDTGPROAmbarella jumps after analyst says buy after big selloff
The shares of Ambarella (AMBA) are rising after research firm Canaccord defended the stock in the face of a highly negative report on the company by short-selling blog Citron Research. The company develops processors used in high definition cameras. BACKGROUND: In an article published last Friday on its website, Citron called Ambarella's valuation "ridiculous," given the competition the company is facing and the lack of demand for its products in certain areas such as security. According to Citron, Ambarella's stock is worth about $30 per share, versus its current price of around $104. After the article was published, Ambarella's stock tumbled about 26% before today's open. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier today, Canaccord analyst Matthew Ramsay wrote that the technological advantages of Ambarella's chips are enabling it to gain market share and design wins, as well as making its current customers more likely to continue using its products. Specifically, Ambarella's processors offer significantly better video quality, compression efficiency and lower power than those of its competitors, the analyst believes. These advantages will become more meaningful when new video technologies become more prevalent, Ramsay wrote. Additionally, Ambarella should benefit from the increased proliferation of drone cameras and security cameras, which together should significantly boost the company's results, the analyst believes. The company's earnings can reach $5 per share in fiscal 2017, predicted the analyst, who contended that Citron's report is "largely void of well-researched content." He kept a $115 price target and Buy rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Ambarella climbed $9.30, or 10%, to $104. WHAT’S NOTABLE: Ambarella’s chips are in GoPro’s (GPRO) HERO action camera line. After selling off yesterday, shares of GoPro are up $1.47 to $56.39 in early trading. JMP Securities analyst Alex Gauna this morning raised his earnings estimates for GoPro to reflect the company’s second half of 2016 entry into the “booming” drone market. He kept a $105 price target for the shares.

07:39 EDTNFLXNetflix price target raised to $950 on business momentum at BTIG
BTIG raised Buy rated Netflix's price target to $950 from $600 citing business model momentum. The firm's analyst believes Netflix can grow substantially beyond 50M domestic subs. In addition, as the MVPD bundle unravels, BTIG expects consumers will have money to spend on Netflix and other SVOD services. As the price/value of Netflix grows, the firm believes there is substantial upside potential to its ARPU estimates. BTIG expects Worldwide streaming subs to expand to over 108M by 2017, up from 101M, compared to 57M at year-end 2014. Furthermore, BTIG believes Netflix could reach 140M global subscribers by 2020.
