Chipotle's Latest Challenge

The following video is from Wednesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Austin Smith and Bryan Hinmon, discuss the top business and investing stories.

Chipotle (NYSE: CMG  ) shares fell more than 5% today after warning that Q4 earnings will miss because of higher food costs. In this segment, the guys analyze the results and share why Chipotle's strength of the past may be its current challenge.
