14:38 EDTTASRTASER, Digital Ally climb after report praises police cameras
Shares of TASER (TASR) and Digital Ally (DGLY) - which both make wearable cameras for police officers - are rising after a report praised such devices. The report was written by an independent research organization called The Police Executive Research Forum, with support from the Justice Department. WHAT'S NEW: Wearable cameras have strengthened accountability and transparency in many ways, the report quoted all police executives with whom it spoke as saying. The cameras have enabled agencies to find and correct "large structural problems" and have increased the professionalism of officers, the report stated. Implementing wearable cameras has caused complaints to decline, while improving interactions between offices and the public, the report added. Furthermore, the wearable cameras have enhanced the ability of officers to collect evidence. The report features several quotes of high ranking officials discussing the benefits of wearable cameras for police. The Deputy Assistant Attorney General of the Justice Department's Civil Rights Division, Roy Austin, Jr., is quoted as saying that, "Some police departments are doing themselves a disservice by not using body-worn cameras," as not having the cameras puts police at a disadvantage when dealing with citizens who do carry cameras. Additionally, if police departments are investigated by the Civil Rights Division, wearable cameras can show that they are following the Constitution, Austin stated. However, the report did urge agencies to consider privacy issues before implementing wearable camera and it suggested that officers could have concerns about wearing cameras. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, TASER advanced 1% to $18, well off its low for the day of $17.38, and Digital Ally climbed 2% to $19.03, well off its daily low of $18.16.

10:00 EDTTASRGoPro slips after JPMorgan cuts rating citing valuation
Shares of GoPro (GPRO) are falling after JPMorgan downgraded the stock to Neutral from Overweight based on valuation concerns. GoPro develops mountable and wearable cameras. WHAT'S NEW: GoPro has risen 137% from its IPO price of $24 and the stock should not be bought at current levels, JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster wrote in a note to investors. However, the analyst continues to believe that GoPro remains dominant in the action camera sector and he says that it could launch new cameras ahead of the holiday season. Consequently, Coster does not recommend that investors sell shares of the stock, as he believes that the shares are as likely to go up as they are to go down. He kept a $51 price target on the stock. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Coster believes that GoPro's stock may have risen recently partly on speculation that the company could benefit from the growing push for police officers to use wearable cameras. After speaking with GoPro's CFO, however, the analyst thinks that GoPro's opportunity in this area is "quite modest." A number of other companies that provide cameras and related services to police forces have moved higher in recent trading, including Digital Ally (DGLY) and TASER (TASR). PRICE ACTION: In early trading, GoPro fell $1.10, or 2%, to $55.76.
