In this segment from Wednesday's Investor Beat, Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Simon Erickson each pick one stock that they're watching closely today.
Simon's pick today is Cerner Corp. (NASDAQ:CERN), an IT solutions company for large hospitals. He sees an enormous amount of wasteful hospital spending at the moment that solutions like these could make more efficient, and sees the company as potentially poised to take advantage of a major coming trend. Meanwhile, Jason takes a look at LinkedIn (NYSE:LNKD.DL) ahead of its earnings tomorrow. While he loves the focus of the company, its three business segments have seen declining growth, and he's going to be watching closely tomorrow to see what the company has to say on this.
