Don't Be an Idiot About This Stock

In this video from Thursday's edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill, and Motley Fool analysts Tim Hanson and Morgan Housel, dig deep into the top investing stories from the market today.

Despite being one of the best-performing stocks of 2013, Best Buy (NYSE: BBY  ) was gutted on the market today, down over 25% after the company announced that the holiday season was both disappointing and "intensely promotional." In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, Tim and Morgan discuss what was behind the 2013 run-up for Best Buy, and just how difficult it will be for the company to continue to compete in the same space with Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN  ) and Wal-Mart (NYSE: WMT  ) . They also talk about why they don't see the stock as a value play even after today's fire sale.
