The following video is from Tuesday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discuss the top business and investing stories.
In this segment, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES:^DJI) is on pace for its best January since 1997, and Travelers (NYSE:TRV) is helping. Fourth-quarter profits were cut in half because of Hurricane Sandy, but earnings still beat expectations. Despite the profit hit, the stock still rose more than 2% today, hitting an all-time high. In this segment, the guys analyze the results and share the name of an insurance stock they like even more.
The relevant video segment can be found between 9:31 and 13:26.
