Is This Growth Stock for Real?

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

In today's edition, Isaac and Brendan share their thoughts on Zipcar's recent earnings announcement. The company booked positive net income for the quarter, beating analyst expectations, but delivered a disappointing outlook. Isaac believes Zipcar has cornered a market where few competitors can encroach on its foothold. So, the upfront investment in this industry will pay off, but the question that remains is...when?

Zipcar should definitely remain on your radar. However, this company's growth spurt could be a ways off. On the other hand, we've uncovered one stock that's already soaring. This stock has so much promise that we've dubbed it "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012." We've created a special free report for investors to uncover this soon-to-be rock star.
