Apparently, investors are beginning to catch on to the fact that Tesla CEO Elon Musk has a severe case of a behavioral condition known as “the planning fallacy.” People who suffer from the planning fallacy are serial offenders when it comes to projects coming in over budget, late, and with fewer features than promised. The New York Times reported that Telsa’s main problematic issues pertain to a slower timetable than expected for the introduction of the Model 3, along with problems that relate to the manufacture of its battery packs.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019

The flare-up in market volatility has left investors scratching their heads when it comes to the relative outperformance of the safest segment of the corporate bond universe over its riskiest.

With stocks coming under pressure this year, with the Dow
DJIA, -0.68%
  and the S&P 500
SPX, -0.86%
  struggling to reclaim their February all-time highs, bond buyers would be expected to turn their noses at high-yield issuers with burdensome debt loads and take shelter in the bonds of investment-grade firms, which carry more robust balance sheets. But instead, the two ends of the corporate debt market appear to have reversed their traditional roles, with investment-grade bonds struggling and high-yield debt, or ‘junk’, remaining at their lofty valuations.

Top 10 Safest Stocks To Invest In 2019: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Chris Hill]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) dropped a bit on its earnings and the future doesn’t look any brighter than usual for the wearables maker. Square, on the other hand, continues to get it done, and Jack Dorsey somehow nails running two public companies at once. Tune in to find out more.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    In this segment from the Market Foolery podcast, host Chris Hill and David Kretzmann of Motley Fool Rule Breakers and Supernova weigh in on the latest numbers and guidance from Fitbit (NYSE:FIT): The wearables leader beat expectations — but still lost money — in the first quarter. And with revenue and device sales down by double-digit percentages, there are real questions about how long its fitness bands can hold consumers’ interest.

  • [By Motley Fool Staff]

    Gardner: Alright, company No. 5. Looking back over our first four, they’ve all been pretty good stock picks of ours, companies that a lot of Fools own and have done well with. This is one of my very worst picks, I’m sorry to say. Maybe a little bit of a hint, because it’s probably not that good a number or big a number these days. Matt, do you ever want a Fitbit (NYSE:FIT)?

  • [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 Rick Munarriz]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has been a meandering mess of an investment over the past two years, but it found a way to be among the market’s biggest winners last week. The leading maker of fitness wristbands saw its shares move 11.48% higher for the week. There was no particularly bullish news out on Fitbit to explain the uptick. The shares are likely just bouncing back after hitting all-time lows a week earlier following a Wall Street downgrade. 

  • [By Leo Sun]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) was once the world’s top wearables maker, but it lost that title to Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) during the fourth quarter of 2017, according to market intelligence provider IDC, due to rising sales of the Apple Watch. Fitbit then slid to third place behind Xiaomi (NASDAQOTH:XIACY) during the first quarter of 2018.
