Investor Beat - Oct. 4, 2013

The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Ron Gross and Charly Travers dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

The U.S. Federal Government remains shut down as the budget standoff continues, and another battle over the debt ceiling looms just around the corner, with both sides deeply entrenched in their positions. In today's lead story on Investor Beat, Ron and Charly discuss the shutdown and the coming debt ceiling debate and tell investors who gets hurt worse by the ongoing conflict.

Also, the guys take a look at today's incredible Potbelly IPO. Shares of Potbelly Corporation skyrocketed today, up around 125% on its very first day as a publicly traded company. Could this be the next Chipotle for investors?

Finally, Ron and Charly take a look ahead to earnings season and tell investors why they'll be particularly interested in watching Intel and Costco this season.
