Stock picks for future millionaires only

Square (SQ)

SQ stock has been volatile since its IPO back in November, but the essential story remains unchanged. Credit card companies take too large a bite out payments, and while they have managed to make this bite largely invisible to consumers, it cuts deeply into the profits of many businesses, particularly those that operate on low margins to begin with. Square allows any mobile phone to become a credit card, and future upgrades will be powerful enough that anyone with a mobile phone will be able to make payroll for a small business.
