2 Conference Calls We Can't Wait For

With earnings season comes conference calls. Here are three companies not to miss.

Jul 7, 2014 at 6:23PM

On Monday's Market Foolery, host Chris Hill, Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser, and Stock Advisor Canada analyst Taylor Muckerman explore some conference calls to listen in on as earnings season kicks off.

Taylor is interested in railroad companies and looks at the North American rail industry, but in particular he's excited to listen in on Canadian National Railway's (TSX:CNR) call because it's booming and he sees that the old industry has a long future ahead of it. Jason acknowledges rail's competitive advantage, while Chris notes the high necessity of the rail industry.

Jason is waiting to listen to the Whole Foods (NASDAQ:WFM) call. After the beating the company took last quarter, Jason argues that Whole Foods is only for those willing to hold shares for at least a decade. He thinks the company will need to look beyond just its grocery items, such as the bars and restaurants at some Whole Foods locations, to differentiate itself from the competition.

After exploring how Apple will be worth listening to, Chris settles on Yahoo! as his favorite. With Alibaba's IPO in the future, Yahoo! will be picking up about a $10 billion paycheck, and Chris is curious what Yahoo! plans to do with that huge chunk of change.

4 in 5 Americans Are Ignoring Buffett's Warning

Don't be one of them.

Jun 12, 2015 at 5:01PM

Admitting fear is difficult.

So you can imagine how shocked I was to find out Warren Buffett recently told a select number of investors about the cutting-edge technology that's keeping him awake at night.

This past May, The Motley Fool sent 8 of its best stock analysts to Omaha, Nebraska to attend the Berkshire Hathaway annual shareholder meeting. CEO Warren Buffett and Vice Chairman Charlie Munger fielded questions for nearly 6 hours.
The catch was: Attendees weren't allowed to record any of it. No audio. No video. 

Our team of analysts wrote down every single word Buffett and Munger uttered. Over 16,000 words. But only two words stood out to me as I read the detailed transcript of the event: "Real threat."

That's how Buffett responded when asked about this emerging market that is already expected to be worth more than $2 trillion in the U.S. alone. Google has already put some of its best engineers behind the technology powering this trend. 

The amazing thing is, while Buffett may be nervous, the rest of us can invest in this new industry BEFORE the old money realizes what hit them.

KPMG advises we're "on the cusp of revolutionary change" coming much "sooner than you think."

Even one legendary MIT professor had to recant his position that the technology was "beyond the capability of computer science." (He recently confessed to The Wall Street Journal that he's now a believer and amazed "how quickly this technology caught on.")

Yet according to one J.D. Power and Associates survey, only 1 in 5 Americans are even interested in this technology, much less ready to invest in it. Needless to say, you haven't missed your window of opportunity. 

Think about how many amazing technologies you've watched soar to new heights while you kick yourself thinking, "I knew about that technology before everyone was talking about it, but I just sat on my hands." 

Don't let that happen again. This time, it should be your family telling you, "I can't believe you knew about and invested in that technology so early on."

That's why I hope you take just a few minutes to access the exclusive research our team of analysts has put together on this industry and the one stock positioned to capitalize on this major shift.
