Disney's Flop Doesn't Matter

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

Dow component Walt Disney falls today after second-quarter revenue comes in light thanks in no small part to The Lone Ranger, which Disney will write down to the tune of at least $160 million. In our lead story on Investor Beat, Matt and Matt share why the flop won't hurt Disney in the long run and whether investors should view today's drop as a buying opportunity.

Also, our analysts take a look at four stocks making big moves on Wednesday's market. Bank of America gets a lawsuit from your friendly neighborhood Justice Department. Zillow's revenue rises, but so do its costs. Freddie Mac's second-quarter profit hits the $5 billion mark. And First Solar's profits fall 70%.

Finally, the two Matts each give one stock they'll be paying close attention to in the week to come.

Many investors are terrified about investing in big banking stocks after the crash, but the sector has one notable stand-out. In a sea of mismanaged and dangerous peers, it rises above as "The Only Big Bank Built to Last." You can uncover the top pick that Warren Buffett loves in The Motley Fool's new report.
