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 (NYSE: RAH ) , 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 ) .
