AT&T and Comcast: Frenemies?

AT&T is buying DirecTV for $49 billion and both of these stocks are down today. What does this say to investors?

Today on Investor Beat, Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Taylor Muckerman discuss the paid-tv deal that everyone's talking about. Taylor explains that the acquisition still hinges upon the Sunday ticket-that of the NFL. Yet, with Comcast shares still up after its deal with Time Warner Cable , Taylor thinks that acquisitions may be the ticket for these large companies.

The real trick is to find a small-cap "pure-play" and then watch as it grows in EXPLOSIVE lockstep with its industry. Our expert team of equity analysts has identified one stock that's poised to produce rocket-ship returns with the next $14.4 TRILLION industry.
