Maybe it's a regional fast-food chain we've not discovered yet that is making edible cellphones and tablets the customers can use for a while and then literally "consume." It would certainly change the meaning of the word "consumer." All jokes aside, if we want to find the next Google we'd be better served looking for the next breakthrough that's likely to change the way people live their lives and make their living. We at TheStreet will do our part to search and scour the world of business and investments for the most likely candidates and pass them on to you on a regular basis.
Word to the Wise: Whether you own shares of a stock that trades for $800 or for $8 a share, you'll want to remember rule #1 of investing: "Don't Lose Money." Using a stealth trailing stop loss alert system can help you manage downside risk while striving to let your winners "run." It behooves all traders and investors to know what a trailing stop loss is and how to use one that the Market Makers can't see or "pick off". This way you have more control over your investing results, and from my experience it lets us invest hoping to find the next Google yet keeps us focused on "rule #1."
