The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst Catherine Baab-Muguira and industrials editor/analyst Isaac Pino discuss topics across the investing world.

In today's edition, Catherine and Isaac examine whether much-hyped Internet companies Facebook and LinkedIn can grow at the pace the market is expecting them to... or not. In fact, Facebook's most valuable markets may already be reaching maturity, and while LinkedIn is still seeing massive growth in its user base and in its top line, the company will have to achieve operational leverage to become more profitable. Thus the question for investors may be: Aren't there easier ways to make money than in these stocks?

Big tech names might garner a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has  released a free report on mobile called "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
