What Investors Need to Know: Best Buy's Buyout, Apple vs. Google Maps, and the Most Googled Stocks

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

    I have to agree with earthunit...

    5 months ago everyone was saying stay away from yahoo, if you have their stocks it might be wise to dump them....

    Meanwhile 5 months later their stocks have gained over $4.00 per share....

    Guess what? I'm sure glad I went with my instincts....since it has netted me a nice hefty profit.

    This is like $15.00 for a frozen lasagna that will have to be baked anyhow, or $10.00 to prepare it myself and bake it.... I'm glad I enjoy preparing as much as baking.
