Ask a Fool: What Does the Future Look Like for Apple and CalAmp?

In this video as part of the Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Fool analyst Jamal Carnette takes a question from a Fool reader, who asks, "Please elaborate further on the next 6 to 12 month timespan for Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL  ) and CalAmp (NASDAQ: CAMP  ) ? Why has CalAmp pulled back recently on no company news?"

Jamal discusses how Apple and CalAmp now represent two very different types of stocks, and with so much of CalAmp's valuation coming from its future potential as the "Internet of things" begins to become more and more of a reality, those future expectations, rather than current earnings, can sometimes make for a very volatile stock in the short term, even on little to no news.

What's the next big thing for Apple? Can the company win the war for your living room?
You know cable's going away. But do you know how to profit? There's $2.2 trillion out there to be had. Currently, cable grabs a big piece of it. That won't last. And when cable falters, three companies are poised to benefit. Click here for their names. Hint: They're not Netflix, Google, and Apple.

    This presentation is nearly devoid of new information. It could have been presented in text in a couple of sentences. In fact, the sum and substance of the video's message WAS presented in the few lines of text above it on the page. Why bother?

    Also - does this guy really sound like Alvin the Chipmunk, or was the high voice just a tech glitch?

    Please! No more videos! Just put your line or two of "information" in text.
