Investor Beat: Dec. 16, 2013

In this video from Monday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Tim Hanson dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Google has just bought engineering and robotics company Boston Dynamics, which makes the eighth robotics company Google has acquired in the past six months. This particular company develops animal-like robots, such as a cheetah that is the fastest-running robot in the world and a robot that picks up and throws heavy cinder blocks. What could Google be planning behind the scenes with all this robot tech? In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, Tim and Jason look into Coca-Cola, Amazon, and Google and the future of robots in business.

Then, our analysts take a look at four stocks making moves on Monday's market. Shares of Tiffany hit an all-time high after getting an upgrade from Canaccord Genuity. ExxonMobil also hit a new all-time high on news of an analyst upgrade from Goldman Sachs. TTM Technologies fell today after announcing a proposed offering of $150 million in convertible debt. And Twitter pulled back a bit after downgrades coming from Wells Fargo and SunTrust.

And finally, Jason and Tim pick one stock each that they'll be watching closely in the week ahead. Jason will be taking a look at Amazon's striking worker situation in Germany, while Tim sets his sights on BlackBerry's assets as the company struggles to slim down as well as the value case for BlackBerry stock.
