The Best Revolutionary Stocks to Buy Series

The Best Revolutionary Stocks to Buy: Introduction

Investing in revolutionary companies isn’t about finding bargains; it’s about getting on board the rocket ship before the masses, and it’s about staying on board as long as the stock keeps going up. Best Revolutionary Stocks is the focus of my upcoming series, which you can read about here over the next ten weeks.

Best Revolutionary Stocks: HomeAway (AWAY)

The important thing to remember is that the ideal revolutionary stock, like Microsoft back in 1986 or Amazon.com back in 1998, not only has rapid growth in its favor, it also has the potential to get very much larger and it is still viewed skeptically by the majority of people.  This skepticism is important, because these people represent potential buying power for the stock.

The Best Revolutionary Stocks to Buy: LinkedIn (LNKD)

For great growth, you’ve got to invest in today’s revolutionary stocks, stocks that have the potential to become tomorrow’s blue chips. Which brings us to today’s featured stock, LinkedIn (LNKD). When I recommended it last November, LNKD was trading at 107. Investors who followed my original advice are now looking at gains of 83%.

Best Revolutionary Stocks: Pandora (P)

Today’s Revolutionary Stock is Pandora. Pandora has a great start in the Cloud-based music paradigm, and thus the odds are that Pandora will be the leader in the years ahead.

The Best Revolutionary Stocks: Qihoo 360 (QIHU)

Qihoo 360 Technology (QIHU) is a late entrant to the Chinese browser/search business, but it’s gaining market share fast and earnings are expected to boom in the quarters ahead. With the potential to be China’s leading browser/search platform, QIHU is tempting.

The Best Revolutionary Stocks: Quidel Corp. (QDEL)

Our fifth revolutionary stock is Quidel Corp. (QDEL). Quidel is unusual in that it hasn’t been recommended by a Cabot advisory service since it appeared in Cabot Top Ten Trader in late 2005. Quidel is a mid-sized medical company specializing in rapid-detection tests for numerous diseases or condition states, including influenza, respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and others. The company has been profitable every year of the past decade. And the stock’s chart is modestly positive as well.

The Best Revolutionary Stocks: Stratasys (SSYS)

Normally, at this time of year, the market gets quiet. But the way the market’s been acting this year, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the market execute a stealth breakout to new highs by the start of September. If that happens, the odds right now say that leading the charge will be aggressive growth stocks. 

The Best Revolutionary Stocks: SunPower (SPWR)

Today’s Revolutionary Stock is SunPower (SPWR), a leading player in the photovoltaic solar panel business. SunPower specializes in large-scale designs and installations of its highly efficient panel arrays that feature 21.5% efficiency.

The Best Revolutionary Stocks: Tesla (TSLA)

Yes, as many of you have anticipated, Tesla (TSLA) is the eighth in my series of “10 Revolutionary Stocks.” Today I won’t spend a lot of time discussing Tesla (the company) or Teslas (the cars), because a lot of the facts are increasingly well known. But I will spend time justifying the stock’s inclusion here today, even though it’s already had a big advance.

The Best Revolutionary Stocks: Yelp (YELP)

Today’s Revolutionary Stock is Yelp. Yelp launched its business in San Francisco in 2004, creating its name by combining and shortening the words “Yellow Pages”.  The growth potential for the company, which has no debt, is still huge. Yelp’s story is very much intact, and there are still far more potential buyers of the stock than sellers. So I still like it, long-term.

The Best Revolutionary Stocks: YY (YY)

Here’s my final Best Revolutionary Stock to buy. It’s YY Inc., whose symbol, appropriately enough, is YY. The company is young, just five years old, and business is booming. Revenues in 2011 were $50 million. In 2012, they were $130 million. In sum, YY has a great, mass-market growth story, with vast upside potential.
