Everything You Need to Know: ConAgra, Hewlett-Packard, and Cyber Monday

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

In today's edition, we look at food giant ConAgra (NYSE: CAG  ) and its acquisition of Ralcorp (UNKNOWN: RAH.DL  ) , and whether this will add value for ConAgra by adding private-label foods to its offerings on grocery store shelves, or will be just another overpriced lackluster purchase. We also take a look at Hewlett-Packard's (NYSE: HPQ  ) huge $8 billion write-off, and how the company's lack of a strategy got them into this mess in the first place. Finally, we look at the staggering numbers from Cyber Monday, and talk about why investors should pass up bricks-and-mortar stories for e-tailers like Amazon.com  (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) and eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY  ) .

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 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.
