Stocks Making Moves: Is Arizona Courting Tesla?

FedEx  (NYSE: FDX  ) is down today after the company announced quarterly earnings. The CEO stated, among other things, that some of the blame for the quarter was on online retailers, who were sloppy and didn't attach labels correctly. Meanwhile, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA  ) is making progress when it comes to battling states for the right to sell directly to customers. An Arizona senate panel voted to allow the company to bypass dealers and sell directly to customers. The decision may be partly motivated by Arizona's desire to become the home of Tesla's new multi-billion dollar "gigabattery" facility.

In this segment from Thursday's Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analyst Tim Hanson take a look at two stocks making moves on the market today.
