More people than ever will start investing in the stock market,in a Foolish manner, to save for their futures, right? How can I capitalize on that? Can I invest in someone who is making lots of dough from so many people investing in the stock market? Who would stand to make the most money from a boom in stock market investment?I've thought about this before, as well. Good point. The "new fool" factor was a small part of my choice to buy the particular bank stock I did (TD) - they've got a massive discount brokerage system. If you're interested in a really long post about the Canadian banking industry as of this summer, check out the link. (By the way, I've taken a beating on TD since then, so you may not want to read. [repeating "I'm in this for the long term" like a mantra.])http://boards.fool.com/Registered/Message.asp?id=1050002000388000&sort=idAnother area I've looked into is companies that deal in investment information. (Thomson Corp. is currently on my "interesting, look into further" pile. They're a publishing company, getting about 18% of their income from investment & business publishing, plus another 18% or so from newspapers, lead by The Globe And Mail, generally considered the leading business national daily newspaper in Canada. Say a total of 25% or so from investors wanting info. That's not bad... [note: this is a Canuck company. I'm trying to buy a bit more locally, so it's trying to get on my shopping list.])Hmmm. Outside of companies with discount brokerage services and companies that deal in investment information, what else is available to capitalise off the coming Fool boom? Maybe a luxury goods company like LVMH? Naaah. I know what the traffic on the Living Beneath Your Means board is like.... sidetracked from transit research. Again....Kevin :)
