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

Best Buy and hhgregg are bricks-and-mortar electronics retailers that are struggling for survival. Both reported earnings with very different results. Best Buy showed encouraging signs of growth in online sales while reducing costs. Meanwhile, hhgregg's fourth-quarter profits fell 82%.
