Today's Stock Pick of the Week

At The Motley Fool, we want to be accountable for our recommendations. Each week, I'll make a CAPScall on my profile in Motley Fool CAPS and highlight my pick in Friday's video. This video series may also include updates on previous calls and related news.

In today's video, I take a deeper look at navigation technology giant Garmin (Nasdaq: GRMN  ) . The company took a new direction after smartphones equipped with mapping apps threatened Garmin's hold on the industry. With a strong balance sheet and attractive dividend, Garmin seems like a good income play.

    How ironic for the Motley Fool to recommend Garmin after months and months of trashing the company and the stock!! I think an "I was wrong" article is in order.

    Garmin has those alternative products for years all growing at double digit. Most analists got Garmin badly wrong and should admit it rather than saying they somehow found new products in the past few months
