Why Visa, Under Armour, Hhgregg and CARBO Ceramics Made Moves Today

In this video from Thursday's edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill, and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Matt Koppenheffer, sift through the market headlines to bring investors the top stories of the day.

Visa's (NYSE: V  )  first quarter could hardly have gone better, with top and bottom lines both coming in higher than expected, though much of this was already baked into the share price, and the stock moved little as a result. Under Armour (NYSE: UA  ) exploded today, up an astonishing 22%, after reporting a fantastic fourth quarter, its 15th straight quarter in which revenue increased by at least 20%. Electronics retailer Hhgregg (NYSE: HGG  ) fell hard today after lousy Q3 results and weak guidance going forward, with an 11% decline in same-store sales. And CARBO Ceramics (NYSE: CRR  ) delivered a strong fourth quarter with revenue and profits both coming in above expectations, and the stock is up big as a result. In this segment, the guys take a look at four stocks making moves on the market today.

Hhgregg is struggling, but some retailers out there are bringing home the bacon
