What are analysts saying about GoPro stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about GoPro stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "GoPro has been making company-wide restructuring efforts, which include a combination of programs to cut costs. GoPro’s revenues are growing, driven by robust sales of the latest Hero5 cameras, the re-launch of Karma and strong accessory sales. GoPro has been aiming towards transforming itself from the ‘camera maker’ to ‘content maker’, and has taken significant steps to diversify into higher-margin businesses including video editing and virtual reality. GoPro is also making strategic investments in talent, technology, software and innovative products for quite some time now. The company has also resumed Karma sales and plans to ramp production further. However, over the past one year, GoPro shares have significantly underperformed the industry’s average return. Multiple operational stumbles including product recalls, messed up launches, production delays and supply chain issues have added to the woes." (10/4/2017)
  • 2. Dougherty & Co analysts commented, "GoPro post-close Wednesday announced that 1) Q117 revenue would come in at the high end of guidance ($210MM) and 2) it would cut another 270 jobs (17% of its workforce) in a bid to reach non-GAAP profitability in 2017. This is now the third major headcount reduction since January 2016 and unfortunately we are of the view that it still doesn't go far enough. We believe the proper course of action here is a business designed around a 10% operating profit on annual camera sales of 3MM-4MM units; not barely making a profit on a hoped-for 5MM-6MM units. Valuation continues to look elevated considering shares have traded as low as 0.5 EV/S vs. the 0.8x it is currently trading at on new FY17 revenue estimate of $1.0B. Our $5PT is based on 0.5x EV/S our FY17 revenue estimate." (3/16/2017)
  • 3. Citigroup Inc. analysts commented, "We are upgrading GoPro Shares to Neutral as we believe recent stabilization in revenue and another significant restructuring accelerates its path to profitability to 2017 from 2019. In our Mar. 3 initiation (GPRO: Initiate with Sell and $8 TP), we focused on GoPro's high opex vs. its prior profitability targets. To wit, mgmt. announced another $100M in opex cuts and guided for double-digit revenue growth in 2017 vs. our 5% growth est. EBITDA outlook is also now positive vs our prior cash burn est for 2017, lowering the risk GoPro taps its credit facility." (3/16/2017)
  • 4. FBN Securities analysts commented, "We reiterate our Sector Perform rating on GPRO and lower our PT from $10.50 to $10.00. The company reported a FQ4 revenue miss but beat on NG EPS due to opex management as NG opex of $182M (down 2% Q/Q) came in lower than our $196M estimate. However, there are several factors that cause us to remain neutral on the equity in spite of the large stock decline over the past year. One is that the company is guiding for FQ4 revenue of $190-210M, which is 21-28% below prior consensus of $265M. Secondly, we believe that channel inventory is still too high. The company noted that channel inventory declined by 15% Y/Y, but this is versus extremely elevated levels a year before. We believe that channel inventory could be around 12 weeks or so, above a more normal 6-8 week level. Note that distribution revenue grew by 170% Q/Q to $250M, which is 46% of revenue, up from 33% the year before and 39% in FQ3. Thirdly, even with the ~$100M annualized opex savings this year, we still model GPRO's NG EPS at -$.95, lower than our previous -$.28 estimate. Therefore, we remain neutral on the equity with a negative bent." (2/3/2017)
