1. Twitter

Are investors and analysts ready to silence the tweets? Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR)’s user growth has been a point of contention for investors. Even though Twitter (TWTR) was one of the notable technology stocks to rise in the market last week, he stock still poses many concerns to investors. While Seeking Alpha contributor, Stock Traders Daily, still believes that Twitter poses a risk for investors, Cantor Fitzgerald analyst Youssef Squali recommends BUY Twitter following the company’s largest gain of 14% since December.

They were the pants of the “in” crowd across high schools and colleges in North America, but now Abercrombie & Fitch Co. (NYSE:ANF) has realized that this demographic is aging.
