The first quarter of 2014 officially wrapped up today, and though the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P were all up today, the quarter itself was the worst since the end of 2012. Are stocks finally pulling back enough for investors to find value on the market again?
In this segment from Monday's installment of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Taylor Muckerman discuss the market's run-up over the past couple of years and its banner year in 2013, compared with the first quarter of 2014. They also discuss some of the broader economic forces at work as the economy continues to recover, and Taylor highlights one sector benefiting from the current economic environment.
