Why These Stocks Soared Today

Today Motley Fool editor and analyst Austin Smith recaps why recently public tech stocks like Facebook (Nasdaq: FB  ) and Zynga (Nasdaq: ZNGA  ) soared today. Each stock had its own reason for being a top performer today, but one of the common themes is that many stocks were reacting to promising mobile futures. 

Mobile is the ultimate question mark and proving ground for most of these stocks. With increasing mobile consumption virtually universal for these companies the stakes for meaningfully profitable mobile presence have never been higher.
