The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which analyst John Reeves and advisor David Meier discuss topics across the investing world.
"Mobile is where the growth is." That's what Fred Wilson from Union Square Ventures titled a widely read blog post about the shift to mobile. He said that mobile is the huge trend that is disrupting everything today. John and David feel that Wilson is correct. Web user statistics are flat for desktops, while the numbers are exploding for mobile. Some companies will struggle to survive this powerful trend. John and David believe that Google and Facebook should be able to respond sufficiently. Ultimately, there will be winners and losers, and investors will need to be prepared.
Big tech names might garner a lot of investor attention, but the truth is that they're playing second fiddle to an even larger revolution in technology. To better prepare investors for this new revolution, The Motley Fool has just released a free report on mobile called "The Next Trillion-Dollar Revolution" that details a hidden component play inside mobile phones that also is a leader in the exploding Chinese market. Inside the report, we not only describe why the mobile revolution will dwarf any other technology revolution seen before it, but we also name the company at the forefront of the trend. Hundreds of thousands have requested access to previous reports, and you can access this new report today by clicking here -- it's free.
