Three Fools take to the air to tell you how to profit from the rising influence of geek culture.

Apple ( AAPL -1.17% ) talks with Comcast ( CMCSA 0.54% ) about crafting a special set-top box for the network, as Facebook ( FB -1.14% ) surfaces memories of dot-com excess with its $2 billion purchase of Oculus. Will either move benefit shareholders? And what about Divergent? Will critical reviews doom Lions Gate's (NYSE: LGF) franchise-in-the-making as Twenty-First Century Fox (NASDAQ: FOXA) coaxes Marvel superheroes fans with a fresh trailer for X-Men: Days of Future Past? Ellen Bowman, Nathan Alderman, and Tim Beyers have these stories and more in this week's episode of 1-Up on Wall Street!

This article represents the opinion of the writer, who may disagree with the “official” recommendation position of a Motley Fool premium advisory service. We’re motley! Questioning an investing thesis – even one of our own – helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
