  • As the protests continue in Ferguson, Missouri, over the police shooting of Michael Brown, shares of Taser International (TASR) have soared 28%.

    The company is most well-known for its taser guns that shock people, but it also makes wearable video cameras used by law enforcement.

    Investors are betting that allegations of heavy-handed police tactics during the Ferguson conflict will spur sales of the video cameras.

    The thinking is simple: If the film is rolling, a record will be made of any officer who engages in police brutality. At the same time, the videos could provide another layer of credibility for police by showing what they are seeing when they are out on patrol.

    Interest in equipping police with body cameras has swelled nationwide. Pilot programs using Taser's products are underway in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Detroit, and London. New York may soon follow suit as a result of scrutiny of its controversial "stop and frisk" policing.

    Video police reports: It's not just the cameras that are exciting traders. Taser's service includes software that could make it easy for officers to upload audio and visual evidence. In the future, these videos could replace police reports.

    This investor believes the demand for video technology will simply explode in the near future for many applications. This investor also thinks that bodes well for AMBA's business.

    Sentiment: Buy

    This investor is bullish on AMBA's prospects and believes long term investors will be rewarded accordingly.

    * Anybody {besides me} noticing all those DROPCAM adds all over the net now that Goog's Nest owns them? I would think that the security business will boom in the times we are living in now and that is AMBA's largest revenue segment.

    * Anybody {besides me} that thinks the world will indeed be seeing lots more cameras for the transportation industry? I think the insurance companies may help pressure auto makers to making them mandatory in the future. The driverless GOOGLE car will also require cameras and the last time I've looked, it is not just GOOGLE looking at making these cars. The technology is there now.

    * Anybody {besides me} think we will be witnessing more and more police officers being required to have a camera on duty / not just the badge.

    The GOOGLE helpouts business has plenty potential down the road and don't forget the GOPRO business still looks bullish today. AMBA's ceo has sold one of his companies that he founded { Afara Websystems} so perhaps he will do that again {once the smart money figures out the possibilities of having the best technology in this growing business}


    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    09:45 EDT AMBA Dougherty believes Garmin in process to switching to Ambarella silicon
    Dougherty believes Garmin (GRMN) is in the process of switching to Ambarella (AMBA) silicon from CSR silicon for their next-gen Virb camera.

    fyi = Garmin developed their own GOPRO competition camera and now an analyst that covers AMBA believes Garmin will switch to the better silicon for their camera solutions.

    this investor believes new highs are in store for AMBA.

    HAPPY 4th of July to all!
