Top 5 Stocks To Buy For 2019

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is known for its steep prices and the $349 HomePod smart speaker that launched in January is no different.

But unlike Apple’s late-to-the-game entries into smartwatches and streaming devices, its Homepod offering isn’t making the splash the company hoped. The tech giant has been forced to cut its sales forecasts and scale back some orders with one of its HomePod manufacturers, according to reports from Bloomberg.

If these lackluster sales continue, the company will have trouble keeping up with other tech players in the smart home market.

The HomePod claims just 4% of the smart speaker market, down from a high of 10% right after it launched in January, according to data from Slice Intelligence.
