The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discusses the top business and investing stories.

In this segment, the guys talk about some troubles for low-cost retail giant Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT) that are just now beginning to bubble to the surface. Shares were down 4% today after the company lowered guidance for the fourth quarter, which is no small amount for a company like Wal-Mart. Combine that with some rather murky investigations into some of the company's international practices recently, and you have some serious red flags.
