J.C. Penney (NYSE:JCP) released its quarterly results after market close yesterday, and it seems the retail company isn't dead yet.

Today on Investor Beat, Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Ron Gross dig into today's big mover, J.C. Penney. Chris outlines a few features of the department store chain's latest quarterly reports; with same-store sales up more than 6%, the numbers are much better than expected. Ron, however, says he wouldn't buy shares just yet, as he believes the company's recovery still has a long way to go.

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