Gopro Will Nevertheless Remain Market Leader
GoPro needs not to upset all that as editor-in-Chief of CURVED turns out Felix. Also, analysts do not expect despite the new Apple patent long an early market introduction of an action cam from Cupertino. For JMP Securities-Analyst Alex Gauna, an action camera is currently a logical extension for Apple’s product range. He also provides the interim trough of the GoPro shares as a buying opportunity.
As for JMP GoPro is seen continue over the longer term the undisputed market leader in the action cam segment. And although the GoPro share total has fallen since its peak of 98.47 dollars in October 2014 by 42 percent, rose since the company’s IPO in June 2014 to 73 percent.
