In a report published Wednesday, Global Equities Research analyst Trip Chowdhry recommended fundamental investors to “take profits” on Fitbit Inc (NYSE: FIT), as it appears to be a “declining asset business.”

Fitbit’s stock seems “hyper-inflated” and “IPO marks the peak,” Chowdhry said, adding that the stock is no different than Box Inc (NYSE: BOX), Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA), Groupon Inc (NASDAQ: GRPN), GoPro Inc (NASDAQ: GPRO) and ZYGA.

In the report Global Equities Research noted:

  • “Remember “BABA is taking over USA and is going to kill AMZN”…AMZN is all time high
  • Remember “ZYGA is revolutionizing the gaming industry, going to kill EA (Electronics Arts)”… EA is all time high
  • Remember “BOX is going to kill Sharepoint”… BOX is self destructing and probably going to be a $5 stock
  • FIT is probably going to be another one in above sequel…Fundamentals are absent”

Fitbit is in direct competition with Xiaomi’s $15 Band. Pricing for Fitbit’s devices are between $59 and $250, and is “going to collapse.” The market is “extremely limited for single purpose, single occasion and single application device, and being successful is extremely unlikely,” Chowdhry wrote.
