3 Reasons You Should Buy Facebook

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics relating to their 10-Bagger portfolio.

Facebook reported earnings, and the market wasn't pleased, driving the stock price down. David came away with three reasons why investors should consider buying the stock. The first is Facebook's reach. It now has 955 million monthly active users. That is unmatched and powerful.This is a big reason why Starbucks uses Facebook to contribute to its experience and why Zynga has made social gaming a viable category. The second is Facebook is building a platform for developers: The more great content available for users, the stronger the lock-in. The last reason is integration. We are all social creatures. We watch movies on Netflix based on recommendations just like we use sites like TripAdvisor to help plan vacations. Facebook is taking social integration to the next level. And if we look past what the company might do in three months to what it could possibly do over the next three years, Facebook becomes a very compelling investment opportunity today.

Most observers agree that Facebook will have to figure out a way to make the mobile trend work for it. For a good way to play this tech revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile named "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution." 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.
