Want to Invest in Drones? Watch This First

We've all seen them in the news -- but when will drones make an appearance in our portfolios? 

While their military applications dominate the headlines, the potential of unmanned aerial vehicles (or "UAVs") extends far beyond the field of combat. That's why everyone from Facebook (NASDAQ: FB  ) to (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) is looking to transform "drone" from a misunderstood word to a day-to-day part of the modern consumer experience.

Check in with Foolish analysts Lyons George and Rex Moore as they report from the South by Southwest Interactive technology conference in Austin -- where entrepreneurs, academics, and venture capitalists all agree that the drone market is poised to take off in an entirely different direction. This includes pure plays like AeroVironment (NASDAQ: AVAV  ) , as well as Google (NASDAQ: GOOGL  ) and other less-obvious companies.

Drones are but a drop in this giant trend
Let's face it, every investor wants to get in on revolutionary ideas before they hit it big. Like buying PC-maker Dell in the late 1980s, before the consumer computing boom. Or purchasing stock in e-commerce pioneer in the late 1990s, when it was nothing more than an upstart online bookstore. The problem is, most investors don't understand the key to investing in hyper-growth markets. The real trick is to find a small-cap "pure-play" and then watch as it grows in EXPLOSIVE lockstep with its industry. Our expert team of equity analysts has identified one stock that's poised to produce rocket-ship returns with the next $14.4 TRILLION industry.
