The Rise and Fall of Twitter

On today's Investor Beat, Twitter sees its stock hit an all-time low, the lowest point since the company went public. While the company beat on earnings expectations for its first quarter and also showed significant monthly active user growth, Wall Street wanted larger user growth than the company was able to demonstrate, stoking fears that growth may already be slowing.

Host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Simon Erickson look at Twitter in today's episode, and discuss why they still believe strongly in the company's prospects, and why today's pullback may have been necessary. They also look at four of the biggest movers on the market today, including two fast-casual dining highfliers. The guys then close with one other social network, and one hospital IT solutions company, that they'll be watching closely.

Are you ready to profit from this $14.4 trillion revolution?

The problem is, most investors don't understand the key to investing in hypergrowth markets. The real trick is to find a small-cap "pure play" and then watch as it grows in explosive fashion within 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.
