Analyst Comments based on GoPro CEO’s Comments

Analyst Paul Coster referred to comments by Chief Financial Officer Brian McGee at a recent broker conference, in which he said channel inventory was poised to fall less than previously expected because of strong sell-in demand from retailers.

“First Take: Positive,” Coster wrote in a note to clients.

“We believe this applies to both domestic and international markets,” he wrote. “This may reflect the benefits of more marketing than this time last year, and a less cluttered product lineup.”  Market Watch
