2 Stock Tips for the Apocalypse

Monsters are big not only on TV but also at the box office, and in turn, they're creating an opportunity for alert investors. Fool contributor Tim Beyers offers two stock tips in the following video.

For example, Tim says, look at The Conjuring. Time Warner's (NYSE: TWX  ) $20 million horror flick trounced Turbo and another supernatural film -- comic book adaptation R.I.P.D. -- during its opening weekend on the way to earning $137 million worldwide as of this writing.

What's the best way to profit from our fascination with fear? AMC Networks (NASDAQ: AMCX  ) is an obvious bet because of the success of zombie thriller The Walking Dead, a comic book adaptation that rose to become the top-rated scripted show of the 2012-2013 fall TV season. Signs point to even bigger numbers this year.

Yet the undead opportunity doesn't end with AMC. In the video, Tim reveals another stock that should profit from Big Media's monster mash. Please watch, and then use the comments box to share your favorite media stock tips.
