13:05 EDTUPSEarnings Preview: UPS shares near 52-week high ahead of Q2 report
United Parcel Service (UPS) is expected to report second quarter earnings on Tuesday, July 29, before the market open with a conference call scheduled for 8:30 am ET. UPS is a package delivery company and provider of global supply chain management solutions. EXPECTATIONS: Analysts are looking for earnings per share of $1.25 on revenue of $14.1B, according to First Call. The consensus range for EPS is $1.18-$1.28 on revenue of $13.91B-$14.29B.

On its Q1 report, the company forecast FY14 EPS at the low end of the $5.05-$5.30 range, compared to consensus of $5.19. Kurt Kuehn, UPS CFO said, "During the quarter, the momentum of the underlying business was masked by the disruption of inclement weather. We are encouraged by the positive trends in our business and expect the remainder of the year to perform as we originally guided. However, due to the challenging start to 2014, we anticipate diluted earnings per share to be at the low end of our full-year guidance range of $5.05 to $5.30.Ē On its Q1 earnings conference call, management said it expects U.S. economic growth to pick up as 2014 progresses. They noted that the economy in Europe is showing signs of recovery and faster growth, though the pace may slow if situation in Ukraine deteriorates, while economic expansion in Asia has remained steady with mid-single digit growth. They expect FY14 CapEx of $2.5B with the pace of investments to accelerate during the year. They said emerging markets are the next step in the company's growth. On June 6, UPS named David Abney as its new CEO and appointed him to the board. STREET RESEARCH: Street research has been mixed in the weeks leading up to UPSís Q2 earnings report. This morning in a note to investors, Bernstein analyst David Vernon said he expects an in-line quarter at UPS with improvement in underlying domestic margins. Shares were rated Outperform. On July 21, Barclays reiterated its Overweight rating on UPS and raised its price target on shares to $120. The firm expects UPS' Q2 results to demonstrate the company's favorable growth potential.

10:45 EDTBBYAnalysts 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 Flyís 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.
