GoPro currently not shipping to Amazon, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy says she uncovered that GoPro (GPRO) is not currently selling to Amazon (AMZN), at least domestically, in a change that occurred over the last three weeks. In a follow-up research note after speaking to management, Murphy clarified that the pause in shipping to Amazon is planned to be temporary. GoPro plans to resume shipping to Amazon at the end of October, Murphy adds. The action camera maker has been shipping to Best Buy (BBY), other partners and its own GoPro.com channel in the meantime, she points out. Nonetheless, the analyst believes the disruption at Amazon was not contemplated in guidance. Murphy is "incrementally concerned" on GoPro's ability to reach its second half of 2016 guidance. The analyst reiterates an Underweight rating on the shares with a $9 price target. The stock closed yesterday down 72c to $14.30.
