Black Friday's Hidden Winners

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

In this segment, the guys discuss who really came out as the winners on Black Friday. While bricks-and-mortar stores had spending that was slightly up from last year (though not for everyone, and we hear who some of the slight losers were), the big story is the major shift in consumer habits toward online shopping with companies such as Amazon.com (Nasdaq: AMZN  ) and eBay (Nasdaq: EBAY  ) , with more than $1 billion spent for the first time. Another major shift in consumer habits that goes along with this trend was the industry with the secret winners: mobile payments, also up dramatically this year.

Everyone knows Amazon is the big bad wolf in the retail world right now, but at its sky-high valuation, most investors are worried it's the company's share price that will get knocked down instead of its competitors'. We'll tell you what's driving the company's growth, and how to know when to buy and sell Amazon in our new premium report. Our report also has you covered with a full year of free analyst updates to keep you informed as the company's story changes, so click here now to read more.
