Apple’s iWatch Is Destroying Fitbit

$FIT is active again amongst traders as the stock continues to teeter on the all important $5 threshold. In my opinion, if we breakdown below $5, we may see a $3 handle on this stock which will put this thing trading right at cash.

Apple’s iWatch is gaining momentum and superior to the fitbit on just about every level, except their active software. Fitbit is extremely easy to integrate in third party apps, which makes fitbit extremely useful on the corporate wellness side of things. Apple will eventually catch up, they are not there yet.

If I’m Samsung or Under Armour for that matter, I would find $FIT very attractive on a further decline. If Apple would somehow make a bid for $FIT, which also makes perfect sense to me, they would own the wearable fitness tracking market.

With many insurance companies getting on board, and more wearables on the market today, software becomes important. However, in the interim the question becomes: how ugly will it get before someone steps in? $FIT needs to hold the $5 level here.

Just When You Thought It Was Safe To Invest In Burritos

$CMG is down another 6% today, and trending over on the stocktwits board. The company had a downbeat outlook slashing future earnings and noting higher than expected operating costs due to marketing.

Due to margin pressure in the second quarter the stock is down 31 points today, down 70 from it’s high back in May. With the stock trading back down to the 200 day moving average, are you a buyer here on this dip?

__

Long term, I think you will win in the end with $CMG. Short term, I think $CMG still has a few bumps in the road as evident by its latest update. I’m expecting to see some buyers show up at the 200 day, only to be washed away as we fall back below $400. I’ll gain interest sub $400.

Long live Burritos.

Oil Continues To Be In “Do Not Touch Mode”
