Top 10 Medical Stocks To Watch For 2019: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Shares of Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) fell 7% yesterday following Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) unveiling of the Apple Watch Series 4. The Mac maker’s popular smartwatch sports a redesign as well as the ability to take electrocardiograms (ECGs), a major health feature that differentiates Apple Watch from any other health-oriented wearable device. Series 4 also includes other features that help users monitor their hearts.

  • [By Daniel Sparks]

    Even as smartwatches continue to gain traction and take market share from basic fitness wristbands like Fitbit’s (NYSE:FIT) Charge, Alta, and Flex devices, Fitbit is investing aggressively in the category. Today, Fitbit unveiled Charge 3, a new version of its highest-end fitness wristband.

  • [By Demitrios Kalogeropoulos]

    A 20% spike in the fitness wearables niche was particularly good news, considering rival Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) saw its unit volume plunge during the period. Like Fitbit, Garmin has noticed a dramatic shift in consumer demand toward more premium trackers like smartwatches. Yet Garmin’s bigger product line scratched that itch for fitness fans thanks to popular new releases like the Forerunner and Edge franchises. Its lineup allowed fitness sales to rise 20% even as Fitbit’s revenue fell 18%.

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) have emerged as the two clear market leaders in smartwatches, with Apple Watch leading the way but Fitbit’s growing portfolio of smartwatches helping it secure the No. 2 spot while simultaneously driving a turnaround for the smaller company. Meanwhile, Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) subsidiary Google has ceded share, although the search giant is expected to jump in directly with a first-party Pixel Watch in the near future. Rumors of the company’s foray into the market were only fueled by recent news that Google acquired smartwatch tech from Fossil and is hiring for wearables design and engineering execs.

  • [By Chris Neiger]

    Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) became the world’s top maker of wearable tech just a few quarters ago, when it outpaced Fitbit (NYSE: FIT) for the first time. Apple Watch sales are still a small portion of its total revenues (the company doesn’t break out Watch sales in its reports), but the growth rate of the consumer IoT device market indicates that there’s still plenty of room for Apple to expand its wearable business.

  • [By Timothy Green]

    The pieces of Fitbit’s (NYSE:FIT) turnaround are falling into place. The wearables company has found success with its inexpensive Versa smartwatch, selling more than 1 million units within two months of launch. And its recently announced Charge 3 fitness tracker brings enough improvements to the table to potentially return that part of the business to growth.

    Cracker Barrel (NASDAQ:CBRL) has a customer traffic problem. The restaurant chain recently posted a significant sales volume slump in the fiscal fourth quarter, which pushed revenue lower for the period. The decline caught management by surprise and contributed to a weak operating outlook for the new fiscal year, with Cracker Barrel projecting revenue at existing locations to be roughly flat in 2019.

Top 10 Clean Energy Stocks For 2019

It’s important for investors to know how to invest in penny stocks safely. That’s because they’re often volatile and can sometimes be fraudulent, despite offering triple-digit returns in a matter of weeks. We’ll show you our top two strategies for finding good penny stocks to buy, plus our small-cap stock pick primed for double-digit growth this year…

Video3 Strategies for Investing in Penny Stocks

If you’re looking for proof of just how explosively profitable penny stocks are, Delcath Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: DCTH) is a perfect piece of evidence. This company saw its stock price surge from $0.02 on June 1 to $0.19 on June 26. That marked a stunning 850% gain, which happened after the company announced phase 2 trial data for its cancer drug Melphalan would be released.

But these triple-digit returns aren’t always justified by the company’s profits or business potential. For instance, Chinese energy company Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. (Nasdaq: CETC) saw shares jump 144% from $1.90 to $4.63 during just the first five sessions of April.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Reuben Gregg Brewer, Travis Hoium, and Chuck Saletta]

    It’s nice to see a stock where the price has gone up 100%, doubling in value. But that’s a backward-looking examination. The real question is: Can a company double in value from the price it’s at today? That’s impossible to answer without a crystal ball. However, Motley Fool contributors have picked three stocks that look like they have the foundations for such an advance soundly in place: Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE:KMI), MGM Resorts International (NYSE:MGM), and A.O. Smith Corporation (NYSE:AOS).

    Take MGM Resorts (MGM) , a stock that’s soared 58% since Cramer got behind the company nearly two years ago. Shares of MGM rallied from the low $20s to a high of $38 in January, before getting slammed after the company reported earnings last Thursday.

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Brian Feroldi]

    So where am I going to invest my capital? While I’m still refining my list, here are seven stocks that I currently own that I’m strongly considering adding to:

    Hubspot (NYSE: HUBS) — A software-as-a-service provider that is pioneering the shift toward “inbound” marketing. HealthEquity (NASDAQ: HQY) — A fast-growing company focused on Health Savings Accounts that boasts three sources of recurring revenue. Axon Enterprise (NASDAQ: AAXN) — The leading provider ofTaser stun guns, law enforcement body cameras, and evidence-management software. Paycom Software (NYSE: PAYC) — A founder-ledpayroll-processor company that is gobbling up market share. Adobe Systems (NASDAQ: ADBE)– The company’s push to the cloud is drivingdouble-digitgains in revenue and profits. AppFolio (NASDAQ: APPF) — Asoftware-as-a-service provider focused on servicing business owners in severalniche markets. BlackLine (NASDAQ: BL) — A software company that is attempting to bring the accounting process into the 21st century.

    All seven of these businesses are poised to deliver double-digit organic revenue and profit growth over the next five years. That’s a prospect I find quite enticing, and I think the odds are very favorable that they’ll outperform Apple as a group from here.
