Buy, Sell, or Hold: Corning

As I've mentioned previously, companies with an incredibly long history, like Corning, don't typically participate in some of the most innovative trends marking our world. Positioned as the market leader in various advanced specialty glass and ceramic products, Corning products are found in consumer electronics worldwide, but trends in its core LCD glass business have weighed on shares recently, keeping the stock relatively range-bound so far this year. As promised earlier this week following videos highlighting both three reasons to buy and three reasons to sell the stock, I conclude my series in the following video by offering my personal buy, sell, or hold opinion, along with some supporting evidence for my decision.

To provide a quick teaser, part of my decision hinges on some trends driven by Apple, which is positioned to become the most profitable company in world history! The crazy thing is, Apple still trades at a valuation that assumes anemic future growth. You can learn more about the investment opportunity Apple presents in our premium Apple research service, a brand new opportunity perfect for Apple-focused Fools.

However, another behind-the-scenes technology trend is growing by a mind-boggling 60% annually! To make sense of this trend and pick out a winner, The Motley Fool has compiled a new FREE report called "The Only Stock You Need To Profit From the NEW Technology Revolution." The report highlights a company that has gained 300% since first recommended by Fool analysts and still has plenty of room left to run. Thousands have requested access to this special free report, and now you can access it today at no cost.
