12:01 EDTTASRTASER rally continues with Ferguson still in focus
Shares of TASER (TASR) are continuing their recent advance today, amid speculation that the events in Ferguson, Missouri could increase demand for the company's cameras. But research firm CRT Capital warned that TASER's stock is likely to retreat to its previous levels. WHAT'S NEW: After an unarmed teenager was killed in the town of Ferguson, Missouri last week, activists called on police to begin wearing cameras, Bloomberg reported Friday night. TASER sells cameras that can be worn by police officers. Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal reported this morning that more police departments have begun to deploy such cameras, as studies have shown that they could reduce the use of force by police officers and cut the number of complaints made by citizens. ANALYST REACTION: But research firm CRT Capital wrote that the events in Ferguson are unlikely to boost TASER's financial results. Although TASER is the only company that markets video systems for police departments, it has historically hyped similar opportunities and then under delivered, according to the firm. After the focus on Ferguson recedes, the stock is likely to return to the levels at which it was trading last week, the firm stated. It kept a $12 price target and Fair Value rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, TASER jumped 9% to $15. On August 12, the stock closed at $12.02.
