Winners and Losers in New York City's Sugary Soap Opera

The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Andy Cross, discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

On Monday, New York Judge Milton Tingling blocked the New York City ban on large-size sugary drinks. Judge Tingling called the ban "arbitrary and capricious," while New York City Mayor Bloomberg said he believed that the judge's decision was "clearly in error."
