GoPro has gone from a high-flying gadget maker with digital media potential to a bloated company being undercut by cheaper Asian rivals. Ten months prior to that, the company also let go of 7 percent of its employees, so the aggressive push to being profitable is likely taking a heavy toll on morale and staffing. Shares of GoPro were up about 123% in morning trading. It opened the session with a $7.97 price tag, later ranging from $7.525 to $7.98, the range at which the stock has traded at throughout the day.
