Can DreamWorks Boost Netflix Even Higher?

The following video is from Monday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Andy Cross and Matt Koppenheffer dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

DreamWorks Animation announced a multiyear programming deal with Netflix. The partnership will result in 300 hours of original programming as DreamWorks Animation expands even further into the non-movie business. The new programs will be inspired by characters from the DreamWorks universe, including Shrek, the Croods, and the upcoming Turbo. But will the new deal pay off for investors? In this installment of Investor Beat, Andy and Matt discuss the competitive landscape with Amazon and why shares of Netflix still have room to run.

Also, they take a look at why shares of Lowe's, Charter Communications, Terex, and Sony made big moves in Monday's market and discuss why they'll be watching Discover Financial Services and FactSet Research closely this week and why you should be watching, too.
