Many tech stocks have been sold off recently. Fast-growing tech stocks with pricey valuations, in particular, have been hit rather hard. Investors seem to be reevaluating the bullish forward-looking expectations priced into the tech sector's fastest-growing stocks. Trading at about 18 times sales, Facebook (NASDAQ:FB) didn't escape this sell-off. In fact, the stock is down more than 10% in the past two months. But should Facebook really be a part of this correction? Senior Fool technology specialist Daniel Sparks doesn't think so.
While a rosy future is certainly priced into Facebook stock at today's valuation, Daniel explains in the following video that there are specific reasons a optimistic future is likely. Chief among the reasons, Daniel cites the social network's profitability. About 35% of the company's first-quarter revenue ended up on the bottom line -- that's a net margin very few companies can match. Even more, this net margin will likely expand in the future as Facebook scales its business as it continues to grow rapidly.

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 Amazon.com in the late 1990s, when it was nothing more than an upstart online bookstore.

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.
