GoPro surges after cost cuts lead to earnings beat
Second-quarter sales totaled $296.5 million, up 34% from the previous year, while the adjusted loss for the period was $0.09 per share, beating analyst estimates of a $0.25 per share deficit. GoPro also said third-quarter revenue will be between $290 million and $310 million, above the consensus forecast of $277.8 million.
"GoPro is building momentum," founder and CEO Nicholas Woodman said in a statement. "Strong demand combined with our cost management and margin initiatives contributed to GoPro's EBITDA positive performance in the second quarter."
The spike is welcome news for GoPro investors, who have seen the stock trade sideways for the past four months following a 58% decline from a nine-month high reached in September 2016.
Following the second-quarter earnings news, shares of GoPro spiked 13% to $9.35 a share as of 4:23 pm ET.
