The Starbucks vs. McDonald's Battle Heats Up

The following video is from Friday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill, and analysts Matt Argersinger and Jason Moser dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

In today's edition, the guys give investors a summary of the Dow, and discuss the growing competition between McDonald's (NYSE: MCD  ) and Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX  ) . Also, almost every single bank passed the new Dodd-Frank banking stress tests: Does this mean big banking dividends are on the way? They also discuss shares of Pandora (NYSE: P  ) , which skyrocketed on earnings news, and the future of the music streaming business. These stories, plus two stocks our analysts will be watching closely this week.

Pandora has won millions of devotees among music fans, but few supporters on Wall Street. The online jukebox seems to be redefining the way we consume music, a transformation that's only likely to grow. But high royalty rates, and competition from all corners, threatens to silence the company. Can Pandora translate success with its listeners into a prosperous business model that will deliver for investors?
