Trading Your Inner TV Junkie

More people are watching television at their leisure through digital recording boxes, like TiVo. According to Comcast, 62 percent of people now watch recorded primetime programs.

To play this trend, Tim Seymour of EmergingMoney.com would look at the cable and Internet providers, like Comcast and Time Warner . He noted that people are using both mediums these companies offer to view programming.

"These guys haven't lost their spot," he said. "Their margins have gone down, but they're gaining in traction in terms of consolidation of the industry."

The delivery of content is changing, too. People are using their mobile devices or other electronics to watch television... without actually watching a television. Joe Terranova, chief market strategist at Virtus Investment Partners, noted the success of Apple's iPad. Earlier this month, it unveiled Apple TV.

Karen Finerman, president of Metropolitan Capital Advisors, would look at ValueClick , which provides online advertising. The valuation seems attractive and she wonders if it could be a takeover candidate at some point in the future.
