Investor Beat -- February 6, 2014

In this video from Thursday's edition of Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool One analyst Jason Moser dig into the top business stories from today's market for Foolish investors.

Green Mountain Coffee Roasters shares exploded skyward today, up nearly 30% on news that it has signed a 10-year partnership with Coca-Cola. What the ultimate fruit of this partnership will be is not yet known, but many are speculating that the product could allow consumers to make their own soda at home in a similar fashion to how Green Mountain's current Keurig machine and K-cups work with coffee. If true, this could be very bad news indeed for homemade soda machine maker SodaStream. In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, Jason discusses how Coca-Cola's investment in Green Mountain really validates this market, and tells investors which of the three players here is the one he'd like to own today.

Then, Jason and Alison take a look at three stocks making moves on the market today. Twitter plummeted this morning following its earnings release, even though the company beat both top- and bottom-line expectations. The problem for Twitter this quarter was that it only added 9 million new users. Dunkin' Donuts delivered a great big heart-shaped donut to investors, announcing that fourth-quarter earnings rose 23%. The company also upped its dividend. And Pandora had its most profitable quarter since going public, but it still took a beating after reporting fourth-quarter earnings due to less-than-rosy guidance for next quarter.

And finally, Jason takes a look into Activision Blizzard, and why this stock has remained flat for so long despite releasing such major hits and leading the way in the movement toward the digital distribution of video games. Jason also looks ahead to what he'll be watching for that might finally drive the stock.
