The following video is Monday's edition of Investor Beat, in which host Alison Southwick and analysts Jason Moser and Matt Koppenheffer dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.
The SEC announced today that it's investigating whether JPMorgan Chase offered jobs to the children of high-ranking Chinese officials in exchange for preferential treatment. In our lead story on Investor Beat, Matt and Jason discuss whether this is a reason to invest elsewhere.
Our analysts also look at four stocks that made big moves on Monday. Zillow announces a new acquisition and plans to offer 2.5 million new shares. Barnes & Noble makes Nook Video compatible with iOS and Android. LinkedIn is targeting teens. And Cobalt Energy hits sand instead of oil with a well in the Gulf.
Finally, Jason and Matt tell investors why they'll be watching shares of JPMorgan Chase and J.C. Penney very closely in the week ahead.
