Top Consumer Stocks
Consumer stocks were broadly lower today, with shares of consumer staples companies in the S&P 500 slipping less than 0.1% while shares of consumer discretionary firms in the S&P 500 were plunging almost 0.9% lower.
In company news, GoPro ( GPRO ) jumped to a session high of $10.89 a share after the wearable camera company today said it is expecting its fiscal Q3 revenue to be at the top end of its forecast range of $290 million to $310 million, likely exceeding the Capital IQ consensus looking for $304 million in revenue for GoPro during the July-to-September period.
The company also said it is expecting to turn a profit during the three months ending Sept. 30 after excluding one-time items. That also would likely beat the analyst mean modeling a $0.05 per share non-GAAP net loss this quarter.
GoPro does not expect to produce GAAP net income during the current quarter, it said.
