GoPro GPRO Stock News

GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO)

GoPro was having what seemed to be a rough start to the trading session today. At the opening bell, the stock found itself in the red. From there, it continued falling deeper and deeper into the abyss. Nonetheless, minutes ago, the stock started soaring after a rumor began circulating in the social media space. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing form the stock, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to GPRO ahead.





What We’re Seeing From GPRO

As mentioned above, GoPro wasn’t having the best of days in the market today. In fact, when the market opened, the stock was slightly in the red. After the open, we saw a continuation of declines, bringing it further and further down. Nonetheless, news broke minutes ago that caused the stock to spike upward. At the moment (10:08), GPRO is trading at $9.20 per share after a gain of $0.30 per share (3.37%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Climbing

As always, as soon as we got the alert from Trade Ideas informing us that GPRO was making a run for the top, the CNA Finance team started to work to see what was causing the movement. In our search, we were unable to find any fundamental news released by the company that would lead to such gains. However, we did find something interesting in the social space.




At the moment, we’re seeing a big rumor associated with GoPro all over social media. That rumor is that the company is about to be acquired. However, this rumor isn’t like most of the others we see. This one has details. In particular, the rumor suggests that KKR will be the buyer and that the price per share on the acquisition will be $14. Nonetheless, keep in mind that this rumor is unconfirmed.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on GPRO. In particular, we’re interested in seeing if there is any validity to the acquisition rumor. While most of these rumors prove to be false, they also usually tend to lack details. This rumor seems to be a bit different. Nonetheless, we’ll watch the news closely and bring it to you as it breaks!

Update: Since we first released this post, GPRO has lost quite a bit of steam. Unfortunately, the rumors in the social space are starting to die out and there still has been no confirmation that this is actually going to take place. The CNA Finance team will continue to follow the story closely and provide updates as they become available.

Nokia NOK Stock News

Nokia Corp (ADR) (NYSE: NOK)

Nokia Corp was off to what seemed like a normal day in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock was in the green. Since then, the stock had been trading relatively flat with little to no excitement-making movement. Nonetheless, minutes ago, news came down the wire that the stock was halted. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to NOK ahead.





What We’re Seeing From NOK

As mentioned above, Nokia Corp seemed like it was off to a relatively normal day in the market today. At the opening bell, the stock was already trading nearly 1% up. Since then, the movement has been relatively flat. In fact, when the stock was halted at 12:31, NOK was trading at $4.96 per share after a small gain of $0.05 per share, or 1.12%.

Why We’re Seeing This

As soon as our partners at Trade Ideas notified us of the NOK halt, the CNA Finance team started digging. However, the answer is still unclear. There has been no news released, there are no rumors on social, and nothing else seems to be available.

Nonetheless, there is one thing we do know. That is that Nokia Corp was halted. Any time a halt happens, it’s usually for something big. At the moment, news is pending.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on NOK. In particular, we’ll be watching for the news that’s pending. Ultimately, we want to know the reason for the halt. We’ll watch the stock closely and bring you the news as it breaks!

Update: We believe we have found the cause for the halt. It seems as though Apple has filed an antitrust case against Acacia and other patent assertion entities that Nokia is using. To read the filing, click here. Keep in mind that we are bringing the news to you as quickly as we can. We have not had time to vet this information and will continue providing updates throughout the day.

Update: The CNA Finance team has dug further, and while we have not received confirmation of the above story, we do believe that the halt is caused by Apple’s filing against NOK.

Update: More news seems to be breaking on the topic. This time, a case seems to be popping up in the other direction. At the moment, there’s quite a bit of chatter in the social space that Nokia has filed a suit against Apple in Europe. Once again, we will continue to provide updates throughout the day.

Update: While we have confirmed the lawsuit filed by Apple, we cannot find anything supporting the rumor that Nokia is suing Apple in Europe. At this point, NOK has opened again. After the reopen, the stock was down in a big way, and while it is now working to recover, things aren’t looking good for the session.

Twilio TWLO STock News

Twilio Inc (NYSE: TWLO)

Twilio was off to a relatively normal start in the market today. While the stock started the day off in the green, the movement since the opening bell has been relatively uneventful. That is until recently. Moments ago, the stock started making a run for the top. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to TWLO ahead.





What We’re Seeing From TWLO

As mentioned above, Twilio was off to what seemed to be a normal start to the trading session today. When the opening bell rang, the stock was in the green, but not by much. From there, we saw some up, some down, but really, nothing that seemed worth talking about. Nonetheless, that all changed minutes ago as the stock started to make a run for the top. Currently (11:05), TWLO is trading at $31.36 per share after a gain of $1.42 per share (4.74%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Climbing

As usual, our friends at Trade Ideas were the first to send us the signal on this TWLO run. When they did, the CNA Finance team started working to see what was causing the movement. In this particular case, it didn’t take long at all. It seems as though the gains are the result of new news with regard to the company’s relationship with Amazon.




Minutes ago, we started to see several posts surrounding Twilio in the social space. The posts were particularly focused on the company’s involvement with Amazon. According to the chatter, sources close to the story have told Benzinga that Amazon will further expand its relationship with TWLO. If this is indeed the case, it could be incredibly big news for the company.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a very close eye on TWLO. In particular, we’re watching for news with regard to the company’s relationship with Amazon and whether or not that relationship will really be expanded. We’ll keep a close eye on the news and bring you the updates as they break!

Helios and Matheson Analytics HMNY Stock News

Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc (NASDAQ: HMNY)

Helios and Matheson Analytics is off to an overwhelmingly strong start in the market today. As soon as the opening bell rang, the stock started making a run for the top. While we’re only a few minutes into the session, the stock is already seeing impressive gains. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from HMNY, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From HMNY

As mentioned above, Helios and Matheson Analytics is having an overwhelmingly strong start to the trading session today. When the opening bell rang, the stock made a mad dash for the top. Since then, we’ve seen further upward movement. Currently (9:46), HMNY is trading at $5.14 per share after a gain of $0.98 per share (23.56%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Climbing

Our partners at Trade Ideas informed us that HMNY was climbing at the beginning of the run. As soon as they did, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. In this particular case, it didn’t take very long to dig up the story, and the news is overwhelmingly positive.




It seems as though Helios and Matheson Analytics is climbing because of a key announcement that was made early this morning. That announcement is that the company’s RedZone map is now available in the Google Play store. Of course, Google Play is a massive step, as it makes the app available to millions.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on HMNY. In particular, we’re interested in seeing just how well sales go in the Google Play store. We’ll keep a close eye on the data and the news and bring updates to you as soon as we have them!

Yahoo! YHOO Stock News

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO)

Yahoo! wasn’t off to the best of days in the market today. In fact, when the opening bell rang, the stock made a mad-dash toward the red. Since then, it has been in the red all day. However, the losses haven’t been too concerning, and they definitely haven’t been anything to write home about. Nonetheless, that all changed minutes ago as the stock started spiking further downward into the abyss. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from the stock, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to YHOO ahead.





What We’re Seeing From YHOO

As mentioned above, Yahoo! isn’t off to the best of starts in the market today. When the opening bell sounded, the stock quickly made a run for the red. Since then, it has traded relatively flat as it stays in the losses. Nonetheless, minutes ago, things changed in a big way. The stock started spiking dramatically downward. As a result, YHOO is currently (11:02) trading at $38.95 per share after a loss of $1.96 per share (4.79%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Falling Apart

As always, as soon as our partners at Trade Ideas notified us that YHOO was spiking downward, the CNA Finance team started to investigate to see what the cause of the movement was. It didn’t take long to dig up the dirt. Unfortunately, the losses seem to be the result of a potential acquisition that may fall through the cracks.




You see, recently, Yahoo! investors cheered as the company announced that it would be acquired by Verizon. However, in light of a recent hack, reports are surfacing today that the company is reconsidering the deal. At this point, Verizon may back out completely or reduce the bid on the company.

What We’ll be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on YHOO. In particular, we’re interested to see how low the Verizon offer goes and how it affects the price of the stock ahead. Nonetheless, we’ll be keeping a close eye on the news and updating you as it breaks!

Update: FBI is investigating the hack on Yahoo! We will keep you posted with updates.

IBM Common Stock IBM Stock News

IBM Common Stock (NYSE: IBM)

IBM was off to a relatively rough day in the market early on in today’s session. In fact, when the opening bell rang, the stock was in the red. Throughout the first short while, we saw a struggle to try and break into the green. Nonetheless, minutes ago, the stock started spiking and is now trading well into the green. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to IBM ahead.





What We’re Seeing From IBM

As mentioned above, IBM wasn’t having the best of starts in the market today. After starting the day off on declines, the stock continued down a path to nowhere for the first short while. However, minutes ago, the stock started spiking toward the top, quickly making it to the break-even line and beyond. Currently (10:29), IBM is trading at $169.35 per share after a gain of $0.84 per share (0.50%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Spiking

As soon as our partners at Trade Ideas informed us that IBM was on a run upward, the CNA Finance team started working to see exactly what was causing the movement. It didn’t take long to dig up the story. While there has been no fundamental news released about the company today, we did see something interesting in the social realm.




It seems as though a rumor is to blame for the run. This time around, the rumor is that one or more activist investors are likely to make a move on the stock relatively soon. Now, there is no way to confirm this rumor, but if it’s true, it could lead to big gains.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on IBM. In particular, we’ll be watching to see if today’s rumor turns into anything. Nonetheless, we’ll watch the news closely and bring it to you as it breaks!

Nonetheless, as soon as we saw the most recent spike, it was time for the CNA Finance team to dig to see exactly what was happening. It didn’t take long to dig up the story.

From there, we saw relatively flat movement, definitely nothing to be excited about. However, minutes ago, the stock spiked, then was halted. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from INVN, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From INVN

As mentioned above, InvenSense was off to a relatively normal day early on the market. After the opening bell, the stock quickly made it to the green, and from there, the stock was relatively flat. However, that all changed recently as the stock started to spike upward. Currently (12:47), INVN is trading at $9.29 per share after a gain of $1.02 per share or 12.33% thus far today. At this point, the stock has been halted.

As always, as soon as we were notified by Trade Ideas that INVN was making a run for the top, the CNA Finance team did some digging to see what was causing the explosive movement. It didn’t take long to uncover the story, and it’s a big one my friends. The gains seem to be caused by a potential acquisition coming down the line.




At the moment, reports are starting to break that the InvenSense is currently in advanced talks to be acquired. According to these reports, the talks are with TDK, another technology firm. Looking at both companies, the acquisition does seem realistic. However, it’s important to remember that the reports are based in rumor at the moment. They have not been confirmed.

Facebook FB Stock News

Facebook, Inc. Common Stock (NASDAQ: FB)

Facebook looked to be having a relatively strong trading session in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock quickly started to make a run for the green. Throughout the morning, we’ve seen a continuation of upward movement, sending the value higher and higher. That is, until minutes ago when the stock started to spike downward. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from FB, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From FB

As mentioned above, Facebook looked to be having an incredibly strong day in the market early on. After starting the day off in the green, the stock continued to climb throughout the morning, leading to relatively impressive gains. However, minutes ago, we started to see a spike downward. At the moment (11:38), FB is trading at $119.24 per share after a gain of $0.33 per share or 0.28% thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Spiking Down

As soon as we were notified by Trade Ideas that FB was spiking off of today’s highs, we started to do some digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. In this case, it didn’t take long to uncover the story. The dip in value comes from a report on Business Insider.




Facebook is a company that makes its money in advertising. Recently, it found itself in a bit of a pickle thanks to miscalculations in its advertising metrics. Today, according to the report mentioned above, the company has admitted to more miscalculation in the advertising metrics.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

At the end of the day FB is a massive company and mistakes are going to be made. So, we’re not expecting for this dip to go too much further. Nonetheless, we do plan to keep a close eye on the stock and this story. After all, while this is something minimal at the moment, it could lead to something big down the line.
