Today we trade GoPRO… which has lost a lot of market cap. Will today be a turnaround event with the launch of new low end products?

Before we drill down on the numbers… lets look at the results from last nights FIT trade. Another consumer product in trouble. Everyone had the stock rebounding…. we forecast a drop post release.

Below is this mornings FIT chart. Another win for StockJumpers. Someone wrote me yesterday saying I brag to much about all our wins. MY response – we don’t brag enough. Seriously who in the world has this track record. Now does that mean everyone makes money from these directional calls? Nope. It takes skill as a self-directed trader to execute the data… but what an edge.

We trade GoPRO every quarter for one reason. We can always count on them for volatility. And likely today will be no different. We want stocks with extreme moves because our predictive intelligence tech can grab the direction of the move. Its up to our members to leverage that knowledge into a successful trade.

Here is the scuttlebutt from Zacks…on GoPRO today.

—————————–

The company has had a volatile earnings history in the trailing four quarters, having beaten estimates thrice and missing in the other. Last quarter, GoPro reported an adjusted loss of 30 cents per share, far worse than the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of 10 cents.

Let’s see how things are shaping up for this announcement.

Factors to Consider = GoPro’s revenues have been highly volatile in the past three years, and have largely followed a downward trend, particularly in recent months. In the fourth-quarter 2017 results, the top line took a severe hit (down 38.1% year over year) due to sluggish demand for GoPro’s Hero gadgets, and discounting of the Karma drones and Hero cameras during the holiday season. The company is anticipating revenues to contract further in the first half of 2018, as it clears inventory from sales channels.

Coming to the bottom line, GoPro has actually lost money in seven of the last 10 quarters. The company reported an adjusted net loss of 30 cents per share in fourth-quarter 2017, against earnings of 29 cents in the year-ago quarter. The bottom line also missed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of a loss of 10 cents.

The company also recently decided to abandon the drone business and slash 20% of its workforce after witnessing a sub-standard holiday quarter. The failure of this unit will likely have a depressing impact on GoPro’s upcoming financials.

Further, GoPro slashed prices for the Hero 5 Black and Hero 5 Session cameras. It also cut the price of its latest camera, HERO 6 Black, to $399 from $499. The constrained demand and price cuts are likely to affect the top line and margins in the quarter to be reported.

GPRO is playing in a brutally competitive market, and has not been able to hold its own against camera makers, such as Nikon, Olympus, and Canon, as well as electronic players, including Samsung, Panasonic, and Sony. The company’s market share has been persistently threatened by lower-cost alternatives from Sony, Xiaomi, Garmin and HTC. The result has been consistent — sharp revenue and earnings declines in the last couple of years — and this quarter is expected to fare no better.

Not surprisingly, the company’s stock has had a dismal run — having depreciated 47.2% over the past six months — much worse than the industry’s average decline of 2.8%.

Despite multiple challenges, GoPro still holds about 80% of the action-camera market in the United States. In the fourth quarter, its unit sales grew 28%, and soared 96% year over year in China and Japan, respectively. We are optimistic about the company’s subscription offerings, which might have added to revenues.

It says “exhale” on the watch… but really you will need to “inhale” first to digest what I am about to tell you.

Pause for a second.

Lets drill down on yesterdays YUM CHINA trade. Here is the other “analysts” forecast below and what they really did. Read it please.

YUMC – expectations which it beat HUGE – but the stock dropped 15% this morning. Why?

Take a close look – EVERYONE said they would beat… and they did – but beat HUGE. Rev estimates were for 1.3 Billion and they did 2.2 Billion and beat on EPS by a penny. So the stock should go up – way up…right? Well it dropped 10% last night in the trade room and this morning as of this writing as markets open – its at 36/share. That’s more than 15% on a HUGE BEAT. So how in the hell does that happen you ask… and how can you trade these things when its like Alice in Wonderland. Well the answer my friends is you have to have an edge. Its not enough to read what the analysts tell you. If you follow that you will lose your shirt. The reason why StockJumpers is soooo successful is we do not listen to ANYONE… except our own AI3 predictive intelligence tools.

And the reason why these stocks drop in face of what looks like really good news with a beat could be many “other” factors. Without getting into a lecture (its like discussing quantum mechanics) suffice it to say… its not just an edge – its an extraordinary edge. Trading is a zero sum game, for every winner there is a loser. Which side do you want to be on.

So which brings me to my final point. It totally irks me when I get new members who join StockJumpers and havn’t got a clue what they are doing and are tripping over pennies on their way to dollars and expect to win 100% of the time. Are you dumb or just used to government hand-outs. Get a life please.

OK – back to what will be the trade of the week — FITBIT

Fitbit (NYSE: FIT) is showing signs of life this week. Shares of the leading maker of fitness wristbands rose nearly 5% on Monday after the company announced a collaboration with Alphabet (NASDAQ: GOOG) (NASDAQ: GOOGL) to explore the development of consumer and enterprise health solutions. The partnership may result in breakthroughs in cloud-based health tracking, or it may prove to be another dead end in Fitbit’s digital health aspirations.

We trade these guys every quarter and have the moves dialed in most of the time. We rode them down and a few surprised quarters up. Today may be the best ride yet…. and here is why.
