On Tuesday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts David Hanson and Bryan White take a hard and fast look at the day's top investing stories.
Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA ) is on the rise after a German investigation into the recent Model S fires found no defects in the cars. Shares of Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL ) hit their 2013 high on news of an analyst's upgrade, as well as acquisition news that the company had purchased Topsy Labs for $200 million. Third-quarter profits for Krispy Kreme (NYSE: KKD ) rose 34%, with same-store sales up nearly 4%, but the market wanted more both from same-store sales and guidance, and the stock sold off hard today. And Abercrombie & Fitch (NYSE: ANF ) popped more than 5% today, after an activist investor publicly called on the company's board to replace controversial CEO Michael Jeffries. In this segment, David and Bryan take a look at four stocks making moves on the market today.
