Justices declined to hear appeal on Taser excessive force case, Reuters says

U.S. Supreme Court let stand a lower court's ruling that police use of a Taser amounted to unconstitutional excessive force in a case involving a mentally ill man who died after being stunned with the electrical weapon, according to Reuters. The justices declined to hear an appeal by the North Carolina village of Pinehurst of a federal appeals court ruling that police can use a Taser only if officers are in immediate danger, the publication said, noting that the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals found the officers used excessive force in violation of the Constitution's Fourth Amendment. TASER, which manufactures the devices, filed a brief asking the high court to hear the case, the report noted. Reference Link

Craig-Hallum calls TASER 'leader' in body cams, but notes pricing pressure
Craig-Hallum analyst Steven Dyer said he expects TASER shares to come under pressure after NYPD issued a public hearing notice for a proposed contract for TASER rival Vievu to provide 1,000 body cameras and cloud-based storage for a 1-year pilot program. In "an attempt to remain relevant," it appears Vievu is providing free body cams to 5,000 officers at the beginning and agreed to a "significantly unprofitable contract," contends Dyer, who still views TASER as the "dominant force in the domestic body-worn video market." While he will be watching for downward pressure on future body cam deals, Dyer keeps a Buy rating and $33 price target on TASER shares.

On The Fly: Top five analyst downgrades
Catch up on today's top five analyst downgrades with this list compiled by The Fly: 1. Netgear (NTGR) downgraded to Hold from Buy at BWS Financial with analyst Hamed Khorsand saying shares are up approximately 100% this year and are being valued as though there could be a continuous purchasing cycle for the latest products Netgear sells, which he does not believe to be the case. 2. TASER (TASR) downgraded to Neutral from Buy at Ladenburg. 3. Citrix (CTXS) downgraded to Sell from Neutral at UBS with analyst Brent Thill saying he believes the next part of the company's transition will be more difficult reflecting the GoTo spin-off; its fastest growing segment. 4. Robert Half (RHI) downgraded to Underperform from Neutral at Credit Suisse with analyst Anjaneya Singh citing fewer catalysts and increased downside risk in a slowing labor market. 5. Noble Corp. (NE) downgraded to Hold from Buy at Societe Generale with analyst Edward Muztafago citing recent share strength and lower earnings from reduced offshore spending. This list is just a portion of The Fly's full analyst coverage. To see The Fly's full Street Research coverage, click here.

TASER 'had no choice but to walk away' from NYPD deal, says CL King
CL King analyst George Godfrey said that according to a source he spoke with the $6.4M police body camera contract awarded by the City of New York may include cameras for as many as 5,000 police officers. If that is correct, TASER had "no choice but to walk away" from this opportunity, but the company still has the opportunity to sell body cameras to the other approximately 29,000 NYC police officers, Godfrey tells investors. The firm keeps a Buy rating and $32 price target on TASER shares, which are down about 14% to $24.62 in early afternoon trading.
