The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analyst Taylor Muckerman dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.
Twitter's initial public offering garnered much media attention today, as the stock soared more than 90% above its $26 IPO price. In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, Chris and Taylor discuss Twitter's number one priority now that it has received its IPO financing. They also look at whether or not the company priced shares too low, and left too much money on the table.
Then, the guys take a look at three stocks making moves today. Whole Foods took a hit today after fourth-quarter revenue fell short of expectations, and cut guidance. SolarCity is also down, after reporting a third-quarter loss, and guiding for an even bigger loss in the fourth quarter. And Transocean rose today, on strong third-quarter profits and revenue.
Finally, Taylor discusses why he's going to have his eye on Eldorado Gold Corp this week.
