Why Gogo Inc. Shares Jumped Today

Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Shares of Gogo Inc. (NASDAQ: GOGO  ) rose more than 10% in Monday's early trading, then settled to close up around 6% after the in-flight connectivity specialist reported better-than-expected first quarter results.

So what: Quarterly revenue rose 35% year over year to a company record $95.7 million, which translated to an adjusted net loss of $0.20 per share. Analysts, on average were looking for a wider adjusted net loss of $0.25 per share on lower sales of $94 million. Meanwhile, adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization came in at $5.3 million, compared to $2.9 million in the same year-ago period.

In addition, for all of 2014, Gogo expects revenue of $400 million to $422 million, with adjusted EBITDA of $8 million to $18 million, or inline with analysts' expectations.

Now what: After highlighting the Gogo's recently announced partnerships and its new 2Ku communications strategy for the global aviation industry, CEO Michael Small added, "Our technology leadership, operational expertise, and suite of communications solutions continue to set us apart both in North America and internationally."

Still, with no end in sight to its near-term losses, I'm not particularly anxious to dive in to Gogo stock. But I'll admit Gogo does appear to be moving in the right direction, so could still reward patient long-term investors from here. At the very least, I think investors would do well to add Gogo to their watch lists to keep tabs on its progress.

Are you ready to profit from this $14.4 trillion revolution?
Gogo has room to grow from here, but does it have what it takes to produce mind-boggling returns over the long run? 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 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.
