The following video is from Tuesday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts David Hanson and Jason Moser dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.
Founder and CEO of Amazon.com Jeff Bezos is buying The Washington Post with $250 million of his own money. In today's Investor Beat, David and Jason discuss what this means for the iconic but troubled newspaper, and whether this surprise venture will prove a distraction for Amazon's lead man.
Also, a look at four stocks that made big moves on Tuesday's market. Shares of Washington Post were up today on the Bezos news. Michael Kors raises first-quarter profits 82% and ups its full-year guidance. And it was a bad day for apparel retailers, as both Urban Outfitters and American Eagle fell today.
