Investor Beat, Nov. 13, 2013

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

A battle years in the making has finally ended between Starbucks and Kraft Foods. An arbiter has ordered Starbucks to pay Kraft $2.8 billion -- the cost equivalent of 602 million gingerbread lattes -- after Starbucks pulled out on a partnership to put its coffee on grocery shelves. In the lead story from Investor Beat, David and Matt discuss whether this is something for Starbucks -- and its shareholders -- to worry about.

Then the guys discuss four stocks making moves on the market today. Apple invests $10.5 billion back into the manufacturing process. Extended Stay America goes public three years after bankruptcy. Potbelly announces earnings for the first time as a public company. And as Crocs looks to head private, which fashion trends are investable?

Finally, Matt and David explain why they're keeping a close watch on shares Wal-Mart and Tesla this week.
