GoPro (GPRO) is set to report its fourth quarter and full-year 2018 earnings results on February 6, after the market closes. In 2018, shares of GoPro plummeted 44%. However, the stock had a positive momentum since the beginning of 2019 as it was evidenced from the 21% increase. Analysts expect the action camera maker to post earnings of 25 cents per share on revenue of $368.87 million for the final quarter of 2018.

Let’s take a look at GoPro’s Q3 2018 earnings results.

However, GoPro expressed its confidence about achieving profitability in Q4 and the second half. Investors hope that GoPro will bounce back in 2019.

In December, GoPro stated that it is planning to move some of its camera production out of China to avoid new tariffs. The company didn’t reveal the new location for its camera production.
