What You Need to Know About: Wal-Mart, Target, Starbucks, Berkshire Hathaway and Deere

The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discusses the top business and investing stories.

In this edition, the analysts talk about how Wal-Mart's (NYSE: WMT  ) guidance was down, whereas Target's (NYSE: TGT  ) was up; we hear about where the differences lie, some issues facing Wal-Mart at the moment, and what the pressures on the entire industry are today. Also, Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX  ) has announced a major new acquisition; the guys discuss both the bullish and the bearish perspective on that decision. Finally, Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE: BRK-A  ) made a major purchase and two other major sell-offs; our analysts discuss who, and what, were behind those decisions, and what it means for the companies involved.

Despite an incredible historical track record, investors have to understand the key issues to watch moving forward.
