We enjoy making light of Wall-Street's antics and conflicting agendas, but investing is still serious business that can have a profound impact on your well being. That's why when the rubber meets the road and I'm looking to invest my own money for big gains I first go to our own resident superinvestor, David Gardner, and see what he's been recommending.
David's picks aren't for the light of heart. They're typically more volatile than your average blue chip, but those investors that take a long view and stick with him tend to be handsomely rewarded.
With Universal Display you're buying a company that seems expensive on the surface, but is also growing at outsized rates and is perfectly positioned with next-generation display technology to benefit from a TV upgrade cycle and a continued boom in smartphones and mobile devices. While neither Westport nor Clean Energy Fuels are profitable yet, they could ride the natural gas boom we've seen in North America to crazy new highs. Both are at the forefront of the shift in our transportation system toward more natural gas vehicles and are classic long-term market disruptors.
