Coke makes some huge gains.

The following video is from Tuesday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Matt Argersinger and Jason Moser dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Coca-Cola (KO -0.27%) racked up its biggest gains in more than four years in the wake of strong quarterly earnings and a deal to sell some bottling distribution rights. Revenue for Coca-Cola's first-quarter dropped by 1% but overall sales volume was up 4%. Should investors buy Coca-Cola or is Pepsi (PEP -0.58%) the better bet? 

The relevant video segment can be found between 0:17 and 2:23.
