In this segment from Wednesday's Investor Beat, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Eric Bleeker each pick one stock they'll be watching closely in the week ahead. Jason points to Xoom (NASDAQ:XOOM), which he calls a money transfer business for the 21st century. He considers this a capital-light business with a focus on technology that could be set to make a lot of money as it continues to add users to its app and ecosystem, so he'll be watching closely when the company reports earnings next week. Meanwhile, Eric will have an eye on search giant Google (NASDAQ:GOOGL)(NASDAQ:GOOG), which he reminds investors still accounts for one-third of all digital ad spending. He tells investors why enhanced campaigns are the buzzwords he'll be listening for when the company reports earnings after market close tonight.
