In this video from Tuesday's edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Matt Koppenheffer and Tim Hanson dig into the hardest-hitting investing stories from the market today.

In this segment, Tim discusses Japanese company Fast Retailing (NASDAQOTH:FRCOY) and why it could be an exciting pick as the company expands internationally, while Matt highlights Wells Fargo (NYSE:WFC) ahead of its earnings report in one week, and why it might be a great bellwether to look at for the health of the American banking sector as a whole.
