The SEC Friends Facebook

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

In a ruling on Tuesday, the Securities and Exchange Commission said that CEOs are now free to post, blog, and tweet as long as they inform investors in advance about the company's social media strategy. The SEC also cleared Netflix CEO Reed Hastings of any wrongdoing for posting on Facebook. That story, plus four stocks making big moves in Wednesday's market and two stocks we've got a close eye on this week.

The tumultuous performance of Netflix shares since the summer of 2011 has caused headaches for many devoted shareholders. While the company's first-mover status is often viewed as a competitive advantage, the opportunities in streaming media have brought some new, deep-pocketed rivals looking for their piece of a growing pie. Can Netflix fend off this burgeoning competition, and will its international growth aspirations really pay off? These are must-know issues for investors, which is why The Motley Fool released a brand-new premium report on Netflix. Inside, you'll learn about the key opportunities and risks facing the company, as well as reasons to buy or sell the stock. The report includes a full year of updates to cover critical new developments, so make sure to click here and claim a copy today.
