Investor Beat, Dec. 3, 2013

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.

U.S. automakers reported some strong numbers for November, with Ford up 7%, and General Motors up 14%. Could these stocks be an interesting buy for investors seeking strength and stability? In the lead segment of today's Investor Beat, Bryan and David talk about why the auto industry doesn't excite them at the moment, and why even today's red-hot IPO market doesn't make Chrysler's potential IPO next year any more interesting.

Then, our analysts take a look at four stocks making moves on the market today. Tesla Motors is on the rise after a German investigation into the recent Model S fires found no defects in the cars. Shares of Apple 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 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 popped more than 5% today, after an activist investor publicly called on the company's board to replace controversial CEO Michael Jeffries.

And finally, David and Bryan put on their foodie hats, and tell investors why they'll be keeping an eye on shares of United Natural Foods and Campbell Soup this week.
