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 discusses the problem with the retail store model on Facebook -- major retailers are uninterested! Several large retailers closed their Facebook shops recently as they failed to drive traffic as expected. Isaac's concerned about Facebook's ability to monetize its 800 million users effectively, and thinks investors can find better growth stocks in the dot-com arena.
Big tech names like Facebook 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" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a market 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.
