Market Overview

EPS Estimates Are Rising At GoPro


GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO) is scheduled to announce its first quarter financial results on Tuesday, after the market closes.

According to Estimize, both the crowd and the Street are expecting EPS and revenue above guidance of $0.16 and $335 million. Main Street projects EPS of $0.20 on revenue of $352.35 million, while Wall Street models consensus EPS of $0.17 on revenue of $338.7 million.

Both these estimates imply a steep fall from last quarter’s stellar earnings of $0.99 per share, but an increase from the two previous quarters, which registered EPS of $0.12 and $0.08 (September and June quarters, respectively).

Analysts Weigh In

In a recent Benzinga article, TipRanks looked into what analysts are saying about GoPro.

Piper Jaffray’s Erinn Murphy expects the company to post strong earnings in the second half of 2015 driven by: “1) stronger than expected upgrade cycle success; 2) distribution expansion and continued sell through momentum in Europe & Asia and 3) ongoing strength of the $130 HERO as the consumer market for action cameras broadens.”

Analysts at Citigroup are mixed regarding first quarter earnings; while they anticipate the company will deliver a topline beat, they are not projecting a large EPS beat.
