Big Movers: Bank of America, Herbalife, Microvision, and Pandora

Pandora tumbles, and Bank of America is the #1 traded stock on the NYSE. Here are four stocks making moves on the market today.

Bank of America (NYSE:BAC) was the No. 1 traded stock on the NYSE today, after the bank received a downgrade from Atlantic Equities. Many investors are hoping to see a dividend increase from the bank following the banking stress test results later this week, but after the first round of stress test results didn't come out in Bank of America's favor nearly as strongly as many had hoped, the dividend raise may now be in question.

Shares of Herbalife (NYSE:HLF) rose today after the company agreed to nominate three of Carl Icahn's designees to its board of directors. Microvision (NASDAQ:MVIS) was also up big today, after the tiny tech company announced a deal with UPS. And Pandora (NYSE:P) stock took a hit today, just two days after the Internet radio giant announced it will raise subscription fees because of the rising cost of music.

In this segment from Monday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Matt Argersinger and Taylor Muckerman take a look at four stocks making moves on the market today.

The biggest change you never saw coming

That's because there's a brand-new company that's revolutionizing banking, and is poised to kill the traditional brick-and-mortar banking model. And amazingly, despite its rapid growth, this company is still flying under Wall Street's radar. For the name and details on this company, click here to access our new special free report.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Jun 12, 2015 at 5:01PM

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
