10:45 EDTGOOGAnalysts 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 Fly’s 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.

12:42 EDTGOOGOn The Fly: Midday Wrap
Stocks on Wall Street began the session in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. The averages moved in a narrow range for most of the opening hour of the session but spurted to higher levels during the second hour. Investors appear to be using yesterday’s sell-off as a buying opportunity, despite the ongoing events in Russia and Israel that largely contributed to yesterday’s action. ECONOMIC EVENTS: The first release of the University of Michigan consumer sentiment index for July fell to 81.3 after ending June with an 82.5 reading. The leading economic indicator index rose 0.3% to 102.2, which was a bit below the forecast for an increase of 0.5%. COMPANY NEWS: Class A shares of Google (GOOGL) advanced over 3% after the search giant reported quarterly revenue that beat expectations last night. Following its report, at least three Wall Street research firms raised their price targets on the stock, while noted tech analyst Collin Gillis of BGC Financial upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold... Dow component General Electric (GE) reported second quarter EPS of 39c, matching the consensus forecast, and revenue that just missed the consensus view of analysts. The company also reported that it is targeting the initial public offering of IPO of Synchrony Financial (SYF), its North American Retail Finance business, for July. In the IPO, Synchrony is offering 125M shares of its common stock, which will be listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “SYF,” and anticipates that the IPO price of the shares will be between $23.00 and $26.00 per share... Another Dow member, IBM (IBM), fell 0.4% after reporting adjusted Q2 earnings per share and revenue that beat expectations. Afterward, Cantor said it thinks the worst is over for the company and reiterated its Buy rating on the shares, though Societe Generale downgraded IBM to Sell from Hold and Credit Suisse said IBM continues to be driven by less revenue growth and kept its Underperform rating and $160 price target on Big Blue's stock. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Skyworks (SWKS), which gained 14% after reporting third quarter results and fourth quarter guidance above analyst estimates and seeing no less than five analyst firms raise their price targets on its stock. Also higher was Gentiva Health (GTIV), which rose 14% after it announced that its board unanimously determined to reject the partial tender offer from Kindred Healthcare (KND) to acquire 14.9% of the outstanding shares of Gentiva for a price of $16.00 per share in cash and disclosed that it has received a $17.25 per share, all-cash takeover proposal from a "recognized owner, operator and investor in the sector." After the announcement, shares of Kindred fell 2%. Also lower following their earnings reports were RealPage (RP), which fell over 21%, and Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), which dropped nearly 18%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 107.05, or 0.63%, to 17,083.86, the Nasdaq was up 57.98, or 1.33%, to 4,421.43, and the S&P 500 was up 17.04, or 0.87%, to 1,975.16.
12:21 EDTGOOGCable ad upfront volumes may drop 4% or more, WSJ says
Two of the U.S.'s biggest marketers, Procter & Gamble (PG) and General Motors (GM), have pulled back on their TV network advertising commitments in advance of the "upfront" selling season for cable networks, said The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter. The overall volume of ad dollars committed to cable networks during the upfront, which is still under way, could be down 4% or more from last year, people familiar with the situation said. Notable owners of cable television stations include 21st Century Fox (FOXA), Time Warner (TWX), Disney (DIS), CBS (CBS), Comcast (CMCSA), Discovery (DISCA), Viacom (VIAB), and AMC Networks (AMCX). The report added that cutbacks partly reflect a shift of tv ad budgets to digital media, including online video. Google (GOOG) has a large presence in online video with YouTube and Facebook (FB) is taking steps to grow in the area. Reference Link

12:52 EDTGOOGEarnings Preview: Google shares up 4.5% since last earnings report
Google (GOOG, GOOGL) is expected to report second quarter earnings after the market close on Thursday, July 17 with a conference call scheduled for 4:30 pm ET. Google is a global technology company that focuses on Internet search, cloud computing, and advertising technologies. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $6.24 on revenue of $15.62B. The consensus range is $5.73-$6.64 for EPS, and $15.36B-$15.94B for revenue, according to First Call. LAST QUARTER: Google reported first quarter EPS of $6.27 against estimates of $16.40 on revenue of $15.42B against estimates of $15.52B. Google reported Q1 paid clicks up 26% and average cost-per-click decreased 9%. The company also reported Q1 Sites revenue $10.47B and Q1 Network revenue $3.4B. Google said it expects to continue to make "significant capital expenditures" and reported free cash flow in Q1 of $2.05B. NEWS: Google announced several acquisitions in the past quarter, most notably for music streaming service Songza, live video-streaming service Twitch, and high-res imaging satellite maker Skybox Imaging. The company also expanded Shopping Express to New York and other parts of California, including Los Angeles. There were also reports that Google has set aside $500M to expand the service worldwide. Bloomberg reported the company intends to spend a "significant portion" of its offshore cash to make acquisitions with nearly $20B-$30B on foreign companies and foreign technology rights. Google also entered the domain registration business through an invite-only beta website, may likely overhaul Google+ in the near future, and is said to be developing a 7-inch tablet that can capture 3D images. At Google's I/O opening keynote in June, the company said Android had over 1B users, Chrome for Mobile had 300M active users and Google Drive has over 190M active users. STREET RESEARCH: Cantor said the company's revenue growth relative to CapEx has declined in the past several years as it has spent less efficiently on growth than its peers. Susquehanna, on the other hand, said Google's recent underperformance has created a buying opportunity due to favorite mix shift and strong core growth at Google.com and YouTube. Ahead of the Q2 earnings report, Google's price target was also raised at Citigroup after channel checks with search marketing companies suggested the business accelerated slightly in Q2. PRICE ACTION: Google shares have risen 4.5% since the first day of trading following the company's Q1 report. In Wednesday afternoon trading ahead of Q2 report, Google shares are down a little over 1.5%.

08:25 EDTMSFTMicrosoft CEO says decision to change "difficult, but necesary"
In am email to Microsoft employees on the integration of Nokia Devices and Services, CEO Satya Nadella said "The first step to building the right organization for our ambitions is to realign our workforce. With this in mind, we will begin to reduce the size of our overall workforce by up to 18,000 jobs in the next year. Of that total, our work toward synergies and strategic alignment on Nokia Devices and Services is expected to account for about 12,500 jobs, comprising both professional and factory workers. We are moving now to start reducing the first 13,000 positions, and the vast majority of employees whose jobs will be eliminated will be notified over the next six months. It’s important to note that while we are eliminating roles in some areas, we are adding roles in certain other strategic areas... Our workforce reductions are mainly driven by two outcomes: work simplification as well as Nokia Devices and Services integration synergies and strategic alignment. First, we will simplify the way we work to drive greater accountability, become more agile and move faster. As part of modernizing our engineering processes the expectations we have from each of our disciplines will change. In addition, we plan to have fewer layers of management, both top down and sideways, to accelerate the flow of information and decision making. This includes flattening organizations and increasing the span of control of people managers... Second, we are working to integrate the Nokia Devices and Services teams into Microsoft. We will realize the synergies to which we committed when we announced the acquisition last September. The first-party phone portfolio will align to Microsoft’s strategic direction. To win in the higher price tiers, we will focus on breakthrough innovation that expresses and enlivens Microsoft’s digital work and digital life experiences. In addition, we plan to shift select Nokia X product designs to become Lumia products running Windows." Reference Link
08:13 EDTMSFTMicrosoft to cut 18K jobs, sees restructuring charge of $1.1B-$1.6B

The company expects to incur pre-tax charges of $1.1B-$1.6B over the next four quarters, including $750M-$800M for severance and related benefit costs, and $350M-$800M of asset-related charges.

12:47 EDTGOOG, MSFTYahoo falls after results disappoint, details additional plans for Alibaba stake
Shares of media and search engine company Yahoo (YHOO) are falling after the company's second quarter results fell short of analysts' consensus estimates. The company also said it will lower the amount of stock it will sell in Alibaba's initial public offering to 140M shares and that it plans to return "at least half" of its after-tax proceeds from the stake sale to its shareholders. WHAT'S NEW: Last night, Yahoo reported Q2 earnings per share of 37c and revenue ex-tac of $1.04B, narrowly missing analysts' consensus estimates of 38c and $1.08B, respectively. The company's Q2 display ad revenue fell 7% to $394M, while Q2 price per ad fell 24% versus last year. Q2 search revenue ex-tac increased 6% to $428M. Yahoo said that in Q2, the number of ads sold increased approximately 24% compared to last year, while the number of paid clicks increased approximately 3%. Price-per-click increased 15% compared to last year. Marissa Mayer, Yahoo's Chief Executive Officer, said that as the company's top priority is revenue growth, it is "not satisfied" with Q2 results. Mayer noted that several areas showed strength in the quarter, including Yahoo Search, which grew 6% year-over-year on a revenue ex-tac basis, but their growth was offset by declines. Meyer says the company needs to "work faster to ameliorate" negative trends in display. Mayer says the company "can and will do better" going forward. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, Yahoo forecast third quarter revenue ex-tac of $1.02B-$1.06B, below the consensus of $1.1B. The company also guided Q3 adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, or EBTIDA, at $220M-$260M and non-GAAP operating income of $70M-$110M. Yahoo also noted that it will lower the number of shares it sells in the Alibaba IPO to 140M from 208M, and is committed to return at least half of the after-tax IPO proceeds to shareholders. Mayer noted on the company's earnings conference call that "A transformation of this size will take several years," adding that "it will take a little longer than originally forecasted." ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm CRT Capital downgraded Yahoo to Fair Value from Buy, citing mixed Q2 earnings and weak guidance. The firm sees pressure on ad pricing continuing for at at least two to three quarters. Another firm, Bernstein, lowered their price target on Yahoo to $40 from $43 following the company's weaker than expected results and said that it would return 50% of its proceeds from the Alibaba IPO to shareholders. The firm thinks there is an increased risk that Yahoo will use the other 50% on M&A, and Bernstein sees high risk that the M&A will destroy value. Bernstein kept an Outperform rating on the stock. Piper Jaffray said Yahoo should be owned ahead of the Alibaba IPO, noting its agreement with Alibaba to reduce the number of shares it will sell at the IPO should outweigh the "unsurprising" challenges in the company's core business. The firm, which kept an Overweight rating on the stock, expects the stock to react positively on the Q2 earnings report. PRICE ACTION: In early afternoon trading, Yahoo fell $1.66, or about 4.7%, to $33.95 on heavy trading volume. Despite today's pull back, the stock is up approximately 25% over the past 12 months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Yahoo peer AOL (AOL) is down over 4.% to $38.98. Jackie Reses, Yahoo's chief of mergers and acquisitions, said at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech Conference that the company is not planning to buy AOL, Re/code reported this morning. Mayer previously told a number of people that she does not "get" the merger.

Novartis (NVS) announced that its eye care division Alcon has entered into an agreement with a division of Google (GOOG) to in-license its "smart lens" technology for all ocular medical uses. The agreement with Google[x], a team within Google that is devoted to finding new solutions to big global problems, provides Alcon with the opportunity to develop and commercialize Google's "smart lens" technology with the potential to transform eye care and further enhance Alcon's pipeline and global leadership in contact lenses and intraocular lenses. The transaction remains subject to anti-trust approvals. The agreement between Google and Alcon represents an important step for Novartis, across all of its divisions, to leverage technology to manage human diseases and conditions. Google's key advances in the miniaturization of electronics complement Novartis's deep pharmaceuticals and medical device expertise. Novartis aims to enhance the ways in which diseases are mapped within the body and ultimately prevented.
