Here at the Fool, we're passionate about investing. It permeates every level of this organization. Today, we thought we'd mix up our normal roundtable format. Instead of collecting a narrow group of analysts, we decided to go for a broader slice of the company. Remember, it serves investors well to take in a Motley view and not a myopic one.
Let's see which five companies have grabbed our attention here at Fool Headquarters.
Meredith Bessette, executive assistant: While SandRidge
Bryan White, Motley Fool Stock Advisor analyst: Corning's
Ellen Bowman, Stock Advisor editor: Corning has been on my personal watch list since Stock Advisor first recommended it in the August 2011 issue. I agree with the argument that it's an innovator disguised as a sleepy, established company, and I'm excited about the future of its Gorilla Glass product in smartphones and other mobile devices.
Marthe LaRosiliere, general counsel: Despite its hefty price, Intuitive Surgical
Charly Travers, Motley Fool Million Dollar Portfolio analyst: I'm calling Dendreon
David Williamson, health-care editor: Staying with the health-care sector, let me suggest Aeterna Zentaris
