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.

The king of fast food, McDonald's, must also be rejoicing now that the ban on large sugary drinks has been stricken down. After making investors rich in 2011, McDonald's has been one of the worst-performing blue-chip stocks of 2012. Our top analyst on the company will tell you whether you should be worried by this trend, and he'll shed light on whether McDonald's is a buy at today's prices.
