Stock of the Day: Google
The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
Google is our Stock of the Day. First, Android is huge in emerging markets. Unlike the U.S., where carriers like Verizon give subsidies to manufacturers like Apple, there are no subsidies in emerging markets. So cost matters, giving Google an advantage. Second, there's YouTube, which is growing fast and generating lots of revenue. That seems to be a very valuable asset that doesn't get a lot of attention. Google is trading as if those significant trends will contribute nothing in the future, and that's a great opportunity for investors today. That's why we own shares and recently bought more.
Big tech names might gather 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 just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution," which 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.
