The following video is from Wednesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, as well as analysts Bryan Hinmon and Joe Tenebruso discuss the top business and investing stories.
In this segment, the guys give three stocks that they're going to be watching closely in 2013. They discuss J.C. Penney (NYSE: JCP ) , Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ: WFM ) , and Panera (NASDAQ: PNRA ) , and talk about whether these are stocks to watch, because they'll either be a rocket ship or a train wreck.
Investors can be forgiven for thinking that a company that has returned almost 2,500% since going public probably has its best days behind it. But in the case of Panera Bread, there's reason to believe that the best is still yet to come.
