Top Undervalued Stocks To Invest In 2019

Fitbit Inc. (NYSE:FIT) has been in a clear downward trajectory since it hit its all-time high of about $50 per share shortly after its IPO in 2015. In the latter half of 2016, the stock took a huge hit, and as we begin 2017, is trading just off of all-time lows. I believe this latest selloff was unwarranted and was substantially a function of tax loss harvesting. Moreover, FIT has been gaining market sharing in a growing wearables market and has been prudently entering into a number of partnerships which will likely propel revenue growth. As such, I believe that FIT is undervalued and is poised for substantial gains early in 2017.
