I think one of the strangest business dichotomies of the last five years has been the absolute failure of GoPro Inc (NASDAQ:GPRO) as a public company compared to the growing success of Garmin (NASDAQ:GRMN). The companies should have a lot of similarities because both serve niche markets of avid athletes and provide a unique perspective on sports action that others can’t match. GoPro does that with images that capture unique action shots, while Garmin provides GPS and other real-time data to athletes on watches or handheld systems.Heck, they almost have the same distribution model, with similar-looking kiosks in retainers.
In general, niche sports like mountain biking, deepwater diving, and snowboarding are growing in popularity, so both companies should ride the wave of growth higher. Garmin has, but GoPro missed the boat and could learn a thing or two from what Garmin has done well along the way.

Top 10 Growth Stocks To Buy For 2019: Nordstrom Inc.(JWN)
- [By JJ Kinahan]
Retail earnings take center stage the remainder of the week, but aside from that it’s a little hard right now to determine what sort of catalyst is out there that could give the market back some of the “giddy-up” it had last week. Unless the retail earnings really surpass expectations in a big way, it might be difficult to figure out what the next instigator to the upside might be. Thursday looks like a big day, with Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) and J C Penney Company Inc. (NYSE: JCP) scheduled to report before the open and Nordstrom, Inc. (NYSE: JWN) after the close.
