    The Top Stock Market Stories for Tuesday
    Last night, President Trump met North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore. This was the first meeting between a sitting American president and a North Korean leader.

Top 10 Tech Stocks To Own Right Now: Fitbit, Inc.(FIT)

Advisors’ Opinion:

  • [By Evan Niu, CFA]

    Fitbit (NYSE:FIT) has been on the ropes for several quarters now, as smartwatches broadly cannibalize the basic fitness tracker category that has long been the core of Fitbit’s business. The good news is that Fitbit recognized the market’s pending transition years ago, and started acquiring defunct companies that contained the technological pieces that could underpin its own smartwatch ambitions. While the first product that came from those efforts (the Ionic) flopped, the second (the Versa) is performing significantly better in the marketplace for wearables.

Top 10 Warren Buffett Stocks To Invest In 2019

The company’s well-established financial troubles could be made worse by legal headaches that may cost the conglomerate billions of dollars, new filings show.

The SEC is investigating GE’s accounting tactics and its massive insurance losses. The Justice Department is probing GE’s (GE) pre-crisis sale of subprime mortgage. Furious shareholders are suing GE and former top executives over allegedly misleading statements.

JPMorgan estimates that the company faces more than $9.2 billion in damage claims in addition to other potential losses from the SEC and shareholder lawsuits.

Warren Buffett, whose Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) sold its stake in GE last year, told CNBC on Monday that “clearly there were mistakes made” at GE.

“The accounting at GE has not been a model at all in recent years,” Buffett said.

GE’s stock briefly sank below $14 on Monday for the first time since July 2010.

Advisors’ Opinion:

    Gaming publishers are always looking for the next big thing. The odds of scoring a huge hit are vanishingly small, even for a short-term victory. Consider the case of Zynga (NASDAQ:ZNGA), the social gaming veteran that struck gold with FarmVille and Words With Friends once upon a time. The company went public at the very height of that adrenaline rush. If you bought in at Zynga’s peak share prices in the spring of 2012, you’ve weathered a 70% cut to your investment’s value so far. Like I said, it’s a long way down from the top.
