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

In today's edition, the guys talk about a banner year for the U.S. auto industry and what companies they would get behind for 2013; a drop in sales of Barnes & Noble's (NYSE:BKS) e-reader device, the Nook, and what that means for the already embattled book retailer; and why Hormel Foods' (NYSE:HRL) purchase of Skippy brand peanut butter was such a boon for the maker of Spam.
