How Bad Will the 4th Quarter Be?

The following video is from Thursday's edition of Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill, and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and David Hanson, dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

The U.S. Government shutdown has ended, and furloughed workers are returning to work. But with the "solution" only considered to be a stop-gap measure that kicks the can down the road until these debates reopen in January, could workers be facing another shutdown at the beginning of 2014? In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, Jason and David discuss why some investors could be holding on to some cash this quarter, and why eBay's (NASDAQ: EBAY  ) earnings suggest that the retail sector could take a hard hit if that trend plays out. Jason then suggests that such a pullback could be a very interesting buying opportunity for investors with stocks on their wishlists.
