Investor Beat, Feb. 12, 2014

In this video from Wednesday's edition of Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analysts Bill Barker and Bryan White dig deep into the biggest stories impacting investors from the market today.

TripAdvisor was up today, after the company announced that fourth-quarter earnings met expectations, with revenue jumping 26% on strong display advertising. However, sales and marketing costs took a bite out of profit. Cardboard king Packaging Corp. of America was up 8% today. After reporting its Q4 numbers, the company beat on the top and bottom lines, and earnings were up big. Caesarstone, a company that makes quartz countertops among other things, was up today after announcing its fourth-quarter earnings. Strong gains were driven by the housing market rebound in the United States. And dialysis provider DaVita Healthcare Partners was up today after beating Q4 expectations, and the company issued upbeat forward guidance as well. In today's first segment, the guys look at four stocks moving on the market today.

Then, Bryan looks at Zillow ahead of its earnings after hours today, and one metric all investors should be watching with this company, while Bill looks at J.M. Smucker, famous for its Smucker jams and jellies but also the owner of Folger's brand coffee. Bill will be watching closely how the company does in its coffee business when the earnings report comes out.
