The Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas introduced some exciting new products for your living room. How should we play this technology trend as investors?

Organic LED televisions were one of the hottest topics at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week. LG (LPL -0.90%) gave a sneak peek of its three new OLED sets that will hit the market in 2014 -- coming with screen sizes of 55, 65, and even 77 inches! OLED televisions are brighter, thinner, and more cost-efficient than other technologies. Watching movies at home might never be the same.

Rule Breakers analyst Simon Erickson breaks down the story, including the suggested cost of the latest and greatest televisions. He also offers three important takeaways for investors -- including how this development could affect Universal Display (OLED -0.93%), Netflix (NFLX -2.04%), and Amazon.com (AMZN -0.77%).
