A Wild Ride For GoPro

This has been a wild year for GoPro Inc GPRO 3.33%. After such an up and down 2014, what should shareholders of GoPro expect in 2015?

Successful IPO

GoPro, makers of high-resolution sports/action cameras, went public back in June. After IPO shares priced at the high end of the projected rage ($24), the stock surged 31 percent to $31.34 on its first day of trading.

Tides Turn

After peaking as high as $98.47 in October (a gain of 310 percent from the IPO price), GoPro stock started a downward slide. In mid-December, GoPro dipped as low as $53.64, a 45 percent pullback from the October highs. The stock has since bounced back to above $65, preserving 170 percent gain for IPO investors.

Technical Perspective

GoPro has been in a clearly-defined downward trading channel since early October. The support line at the bottom of the channel is currently around the $51 level, and resistance at the top of the channel is currently around $75. Until the stock breaks above that downward-sloping resistance line, GoPro may continue to drift lower.
