Facebook and Apple Special Report

In this week's MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and analysts Alex Scherer and Jason Moser zero in on Facebook and Apple, discussing the latest headline-grabbing news for each.

First up, the guys debate Facebook's future following a bearish story in Barron's questioning the company's ability to monetize mobile (and a subsequent 9% drop in share price). Transitioning over to Apple, the guys then discuss the headline-grabbing riot at the Foxconn factory and single out one reason that even despite suspended production, the incident shouldn't worry Apple shareholders.

Watch the following video for the guys' full analysis.

Although the MarketFoolery team is more bullish than Barron's regarding Facebook's future, it's still true that after the world's most-hyped IPO turned out to be a dud, most investors don't even want to think about shares of Facebook. But there are certain things that every investor needs to know about this company, and we've outlined them in our newest premium research report. There is a lot more to this company than meets the eye, so read up on whether there is anything to "like" about Facebook today, and we'll tell you whether we think it deserves a place in your portfolio.
