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.

11:12 EDTTASRTASER deal in U.K. widely expected, but adds to confidence, says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster believes the London Metropolitan police award to TASER announced this morning was widely anticipated, so he doesn't expect the stock to move up significantly on the news. However, he thinks the announcement is still a "mild positive," since it gives higher confidence in 2016 results and should serve as an important reference account for the company's future sales efforts. Coster keeps a Neutral rating on TASER shares.
10:38 EDTTASRCraig-Hallum reiterates Buy on TASER after London win
Craig-Hallum analyst Steven Dyer reiterates a Buy rating on TASER with a $28 price target after the company confirmed it has been selected to provide AXON 2 Body Cams to all 22,000 London Met Police frontline officers. All eyes will now turn toward the recurring business, which is still under negotiation, Dyer tells investors in an intraday research note. He believes the most likely outcome is on-premise or private cloud storage with TASER's digital video management software used to manage the digital evidence. While such an outcome could bring lower recurring revenue, it would result in better margins, the analyst contends.
09:13 EDTTASRTASER wins bid to outfit 22K London Metro Police Officers with body cameras
TASER International announced the selection of the Axon body-worn video platform by the London Metropolitan Police Service. The new cameras will be deployed to all frontline officers. Final contract details are still being negotiated at this time. The Metropolitan Police completed a 12-month pilot earlier this year using 1,000 of TASER's Axon body-worn cameras. "The world's largest trial of body cameras to date was considered a success and a research study conducted by MOPAC and the College of Policing found that introducing the cameras resulted in a 33% reduction in complaints against officers," TASER said. Given the scale and complexity of the anticipated contract, the company does not expect to release any additional information until it releases financial results for the year 2015 in February 2016. TASER shares are up 12% in pre-market trading following the announcement.
