Valentine's Day has typically been about roses, cuddly teddy bears, mounds of chocolate, and sappy greeting cards. Some of my fondest memories stem from decorated shoeboxes filled with cards that came in packs of 20. How about you? I know that some folks love celebrating this holiday of the heart, but others don't care so much for Cupid and his magical arrows. Whatever your stance, this year we're going to heat things up at the Fool.
Last year, we focused on the finer things that could warm your heart in the investing world. From conglomerate General Electric (NYSE: GE ) and coffee-lovin' Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX ) to computing giants IBM (NYSE: IBM ) and Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT ) , there was plenty of love to pass around. The year before that, we gave you the warm fuzzies by telling you about our Foolish First Loves. This year, we're going to spice things up for Fired-Up February with investments that are hot, hot, hot!
That's right. Forget about the companies that might cause you heartache. We want to know which investments are flat-out smokin'!
Is Apple (Nasdaq: AAPL ) or Chipotle (NYSE: CMG-B ) the beauty that's caught your eye from across the floor of the stock exchange? What is it about Dolby (NYSE: DLB ) that has Rich Duprey standing outside your window, boom box and all, gushing about it in song form? We've got plenty of sizzlin' investment ideas that just might make you swoon.
So before you whisk your loved one off to a romantic evening, spend some time drooling over these investment ideas. You never know what might catch your eye, your heart, or your portfolio.
