Fitbit, Pandora lead strong day for area stocks

Bay Area stocks flexed their muscles Tuesday, with the likes of Fitbit, Pandora Media and Twitter all finishing the day with solid gains.

Fitbit climbed more than 5 percent, to $5.32 a share, as the fitness band maker became the subject of some takeover speculation. Still, some analysts who follow Fitbit said the possibility that the company could be a buyout target remains a long way off.
