MarketFoolery: Dec. 18, 2013

In this video from Wednesday's MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Taylor Muckerman and Jason Moser dig deep into the biggest stories on the market for Foolish investors today.

Ford announced earnings today, and shares sold off more than 8% on the news. Ford reduced its guidance for 2014, citing margin and profit contraction due to the launch of many of its new models next year, and also mentioned the continuing recession in Europe as a cause of concern for the company. Are things as bad as the market thinks here? In the lead story on today's MarketFoolery, Taylor and Jason discuss Ford in 2014, and why some short-term bad news for the company may represent an opportunity for long-term investors.

Then, FedEx released its Q2 earnings, and while profit was up 14% and the company raised its full-year earnings growth guidance, it did miss some analysts' expectations, and shares were mostly flat on the news. Taylor and Jason take a look at some of the concerning things from this quarter's earnings for FedEx, as well as some of the reasons to be optimistic about it going forward, including why Cyber Monday sales could translate into a massive quarter for FedEx three months down the road.

And finally, with so many successful blockbuster hits this year and so many successful IPOs, AMC Entertainment's IPO today made a lot of sense. But does a lot of buzz at the box office translate to an exciting stock for investors? In today's final segment, our analysts discuss movies and whether they're interested in putting their money in movie theater stocks this holiday season.
