GoPro says relationship with Amazon remains 'strong'

Contacted by The Fly, GoPro (GPRO) said that the company has a "strong and ongoing" working relationship with Amazon (AMZN), and expects HERO5 to be sold on the online retailer soon, most likely "by the end of this month or early November." Further, a GoPro's spokeswoman told The Fly that "the temporary delay in selling HERO5 on Amazon is attributable to a negotiation on our UPP." This comes after Piper Jaffray analyst Erinn Murphy said she had uncovered that GoPro is currently not selling via Amazon in the U.S., a situation she expects to be temporary. The analyst believes the disruption was not contemplated in guidance, which leaves her "incrementally concerned" on the company's ability to reach its second half of 2016 goals. In afternoon trading, shares of GoPro have dropped over 4.5% to $13.64.

New drone competitor won't knock down GoPro Karma, says BofA/Merrill
After DJI announced its Mavic drone, BofA/Merrill analyst Jason Mitchell says that the product will appeal more to drone enthusiasts, while GoPro's Karma drone will be more popular with casual consumers and those focused on film. The analyst sees "little risk" to his Q4 estimates for GoPro as a result of Mavic's launch ,since he did not expect GoPro to obtain much revenue from Karma in Q4. Although the analyst believes that Mavic increases GoPro's risk in fiscal 2017, he continues to believe that Karma will be able to obtain a 4%-5% share of the drone market in fiscal 2017. Mitchell keeps a $19 price target and Buy rating on GoPro.

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.

JPMorgan says buy GoPro on today's weakness
JPMorgan analyst Paul Coster views today's weakness in shares of GoPro (GPRO) as a buying opportunity. While GoPro is not shipping Hero 5 via the Amazon (AMZN) channel today, Amazon has been consistently a top five channel partner for the action camera maker, Coster tells investors in a research note. He expects Amazon shipments to resume by month end and points out the hiatus does not apply to international Amazon sales. The one month impact would be 30,000 Hero 5 units through this channel, or less than $10M in GoPro sales, Coster estimates. He calls the decision to halt shipments to Amazon voluntary and believes the company has alternative distribution channels for the new product. Coster has an Overweight rating on GoPro. The shares are down 22c to $14.08 after Piper Jaffray this morning highlighted that Hero shipments to Amazon have stopped.

Amazon.com price target raised to $1,000 from $835 at Cantor
Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali raised his price target for Amazon.com to $1,000 from $835 citing continued strength in core retail and sustained momentum in Web Services. The stock closed yesterday down $10.71 to $831.00. We're reaching a tipping point in e-commerce, with revenue growth in the U.S. accelerating year-over-year in the first nine months of 2016, Squali tells investors in a research note. This trend is "playing into the hands of market leader Amazon," the analyst contends. He points out that Prime's user base is growing and that Amazon's share of retail searches online is growing. The analyst expects Amazon Web Services' "strong economics" to continue to fund growth initiatives at Amazon. Squali sees the stock as continuing to "grind higher." He keeps a Buy rating on the name.

Morgan Stanley sees 'un-grandfathering' peaking for Netflix in Q3
Morgan Stanley analyst Benjamin Swinburne believes the market expects Netflix (NFLX) to report Q3 domestic net subscriber additions that fall short of the company's 300K forecast. However, he thinks the impact of "un-grandfathering" will peak in Q3 and that the percentage of U.S. members seeing price increases will begin to fade in Q4. While acknowledging that Amazon (AMZN) continues to grow as a competitor for content and time spent, Swinburne notes that local and regional players in many markets continue to struggle. The analyst keeps an Overweight rating and $110 price target on Netflix shares.
