GoPro's Stock Jumps After Results, Outlook Beat Expectations

Shares of GoPro Inc. jumped 3.7% in after-hours trade Thursday, after the action camera maker reported better-than-expected first-quarter results and second-quarter outlook. The net loss widened to $111.2 million, or 78 cents a share, from $107.5 million, or 78 cents a share, in the same period a year ago. Excluding non-recurring items, the adjusted per-share loss was 44 cents, compared with the FactSet loss per share of 45 cents.
