GoPro downgraded to Market Perform after drone recall at Raymond James
As previously reported, Raymond James downgraded GoPro to Market Perform from Outperform following the company's announcement of an immediate recall of the roughly 2,500 Karma drones purchased since launch on October 23.. Analyst Tavis McCourt is concerned about GoPro's brand image following a 12-18 month period of product management missteps and its ability to broaden its product portfolio into different areas. McCourt didn't make any changes to 2016 estimates but is less comfortable in potential upside and sustainability of growth in 2017 and beyond.

Glu Mobile app rankings suggests mixed Q2, says Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Michael Olson said his analysis of iOS app rankings in Q2 suggests Glu Mobile's (GLUU) Kendall & Kylie game dropped in the rankings after a brief time among the top 20 last quarter, but that its number of titles ranked in the top 200 during Q2 increased modestly to 5.7 from 4.9 last quarter. The analyst, who thinks the company had relatively conservative assumptions for all titles in Q2, thinks the data suggest a mixed Q2 for Glu and keeps an Overweight rating $3.50 price target on the shares. In separate notes to investors, Olson also indicated that the average rank of top 5 titles of Activision's (ATVI) King Digital unit have not changed significantly from Q1 to Q2 and that number of Zynga (ZNGA) games ranked in the top 20 was down only modestly quarter-over-quarter. The firm has a Neutral rating on Zynga and an Overweight rating on Activision Blizzard.

The analyst lowered his price target on the shares to $2.50 from $4.15.
