What Facebook's App Store Means for Investors

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discusses topics around  the investing world. Since its public debut last month, shares of Facebook have fallen as fast as they can trade hands. An embarassment to all parties involved, the company's IPO focused investors intently on many of the social-networking giant's more glaring flaws, especially its lack of a business plan for its mobile platform. However, Facebook recently introduced a new feature that should alleviate some of the pressure -- a new app store. But does this make sense for a company whose supposed expertise lies in advertising? Does this signal Facebook's intent to take on Apple and Google head-first? Watch the video to find out what this means for Facebook fans and tech investors alike.

Apple has made a fortune for a sea of investors. However, now that it's the most valuable company in the world, is there room left for investors to see huge gains? In our new premium research report, our senior technology analyst gives you the reasons to buy or sell the company. Not only that, but also you'll get continuing updates whenever major Apple news breaks. Read more about this timely opportunity here.
