Why should investors be watching fintech, renewable energy, and the “buy now, pay later” industries in 2022? What’s so exciting about home improvement, healthcare, and an increased focus on stakeholders? Do Crown Castle, Costco, and C3ai really have upside potential? Why investors should keep shares of Mondelez, Peloton, and Zillow on a short leash? And should the CEOs at MarketAxess, Zillow, and Alteryx be updating their resumes? Andy Cross, Ron Gross, and Jason Moser tackle those questions and share why they might regret not owning shares of Monday.com, Visa, and Matterport. They also explain why Okta, Home Depot, and Lowe’s are going to surprise investors in the new year, and make some reckless predictions about Twitter, Berkshire Hathaway, and the Metaverse.
One week before our “2022 Preview” show, Chris Hill takes a step back from stocks to share two conversations. Carl Quintanilla may have been distracted as a college student, but he knew that media was in his future. From a small newspaper to The Wall Street Journal, from print journalism to TV, from reporting to anchoring, he’s demonstrated a willingness to try new things and take on challenges like reporting in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Chris Diamantopoulos gets recognized on the street for playing over-the-top billionaire Russ Hanneman in HBO’s comedy series “Silicon Valley”. He shares how he got started investing, why he’s enjoying being a judge on the investing reality show “Unicorn Hunters”, and how it is to feel the weight of history as one of the few people to voice Mickey Mouse.
What were the biggest headlines of the year for investors? Who made the most questionable comments? Why were Ford Motor, Bath & Body Works, and Synaptics such surprising stocks in 2021? What makes the underlying businesses of Roku, Axon Enterprise, and Twilio better than their recent stock performances? Motley Fool analysts Andy Cross, Ron Gross, and Jason Moser answer those questions and share why Arkadiy Dobkin (EPAM Systems), Satya Nadella (Microsoft), and Marvin Ellison (Lowe’s) get their votes for CEO of the Year.
