Here at StreetAuthority, we're always looking for "game-changing" stocks. In fact, my colleague Andy Obermueller has an entire newsletter dedicated to the subject. These "game-changers" are usually smaller firms that are developing revolutionary new products. Yet we also have our eye on larger, more well-established companies that seek to push the envelope, developing technologies that can enhance the customer's experience in new and different ways.
These larger firms know heavy investments in research and development (R&D) are crucial. R&D efforts, which often yield a treasure trove of patents, can help them command firm pricing and generate impressive margins.
