The biggest stories from Tuesday's market for today's Foolish investor.

Jan 7, 2014 at 8:07PM

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.

Earnings season is just around the corner, and according to a Barron's survey, there is already a lot of optimism among Wall Street analysts this year, with predictions of double-digit growth in profits. Matt and Tim each break down one metric they'll be focusing in on heavily this quarter, as companies begin to report.

Then, the guys look at four stocks making moves on the market today. Wynn Resorts hit an all-time high in the wake of a bullish report on Macau gaming stocks. Netflix fell after a Morgan Stanley analyst downgraded the stock, warning of increased competition as one of the risks for the company going forward. Shares of Zambeef Products, one of the largest agribusinesses in Zambia, have risen more than 30% in the past three days after the company was named "Tip of the Week" by Investors Chronicle magazine. And JPMorgan Chase will pay more than $2 billion in fines for its failure to detect and report fraud in the Bernie Madoff scandal, the largest penalty ever for a violation of the Bank Secrecy Act.

And finally, two picks for investors to add to their watchlists this week. Tim discusses Japanese company Fast Retailing and why it could be an exciting pick as the company expands internationally, while Matt highlights Wells Fargo 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.

The only big bank built to last
Many investors are terrified about investing in big banking stocks after the crash, but the sector has one notable stand-out. In a sea of mismanaged and dangerous peers, it rises above as "The Only Big Bank Built to Last." You can uncover the top pick that Warren Buffett loves in The Motley Fool's new report.
