LinkedIn, GAP and Activision Blizzard: 3 Stocks Moving on Friday's Market

In this video from Friday's edition of Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and James Early take a deep dive into the biggest business and investment stories from the market today.

Shares of LinkedIn (NYSE: LNKD  ) fell today after the company released its Q4 earnings report. Despite beating on earnings and revenue, 2014 guidance projected less growth than analysts were hoping. Clothing retailer GAP (NYSE: GPS  ) is up today after announcing that January sales beat expectations. Specifically, the company's Gap and Old Navy sales were up a bit, though sales were down at Banana Republic. And Activision Blizzard (NASDAQ: ATVI  ) is up today after releasing its numbers for Q4. Profits were down 51%, but the numbers were still better than analysts were expecting. In this segment, James and Jason take a look at three stocks making moves on the market today.
