Market Foolery, Oct. 22, 2013

The following video is from Tuesday's edition of Market Foolery, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Tim Hanson and Jim Gillies give their Foolish take on the biggest investing stories of the day.

Netflix packed on an additional 1.3 million subscribers this quarter, and the stock has hit a new all-time high. However, CEO Reed Hastings said in the conference call that the stock could be compared to when it was particularly frothy back in 2003. In the lead story on today's Market Foolery, Tim and Jim give their view of Netflix today as a stock, and what the future looks like for the company.

Then the guys take a look at Coach, which fell more than 7% this morning after the company announced earnings. This marks the sixth straight quarter of high volatility following the earnings report. Tim and Jim discuss how Coach may have sacrificed some of its brand strength for the sake of a period of high growth and cash generation, and what the consequences might be for the company going forward.

And finally, a look at RadioShack, which pulled back more than 21% today after an appallingly bad earnings report. Does this sharp drop finally signal the end of the turnaround story for RadioShack? Our analysts sift through the ashes, to see if there's any bull case left to make.

    So Netflix posts quadruple earnings for the last quarter and its stock rewinds 9%? Not only is the drop irrational, but it signifies a tremendous opportunity for purchase on the cheap. Chances are, the price will return on high with a vengeance.
