It's not often you get a second chance at a business concept that both revolutionized an industry -- and made investors a fortune.
Yet that's exactly what I'd like to share with you today. Let me explain...
During the past 50 years, we've seen big-box retailers replace mom-and-pop shops thanks to lower prices, wider selections, exceptional customer service, and a one-stop shopping experience.
This has catapulted companies like Costco Wholesale [Nasdaq: COST] and Wal-Mart [NYSE: WMT] into some of the biggest in the world -- earning early investors 5,000% and 75,000%, respectively, since their IPOs.
Now the same retailing shift is occurring in Latin America, with one company clearly leading the charge. The difference is that this time you can count yourself among those early investors.
Before I share this company with you, allow me a brief introduction and some background.
My name is Andy Cross, and I'm the Chief Investment Officer of The Motley Fool.
This company comes from an annual research report we put out each year revealing the companies our top analysts believe will perform best in the year ahead (and for years after).
The average stock from past years' reports closed up 63%, while the market was up just 22%. Even more impressive are the top-performing individual stocks from past years, which were up as much as 540%, 613%, and 1,849%!
This year, I handpicked the company I believe has the most potential, which is why we're calling it "The Motley Fool's Top Stock for 2012."
How high will this stock soar? It's impossible to say for sure, of course. But I'm predicting that 2012 will be an excellent year for its investors.
Which is why I can't wait to share this company's name, ticker symbol, and the full thesis behind our recommendation with you. Simply click below to find out all the details.
