Starbucks' Thrill of Victory and Bloomberg's Agony of Da Sweets

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

A judge blocks New York City's ban on large-sized sugary drinks. The ban was set to take effect on Tuesday. Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX  ) had said it would defy the ban, while Dunkin' Brands' (NASDAQ: DNKN  ) Dunkin' Donuts was ready to comply. In this installment of Investor Beat, our analysts discuss what the sugary soap opera means for investors.
