The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Erin Kennedy and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and David Hanson investigate the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

In this segment from Investor Beat, Jason explains why he's keeping a close eye on Control4 (NASDAQ:CTRL), which will be reporting earnings next week. The burgeoning number of electronic devices in each household suggests this company has a significant market opportunity. David's watching American Tower (NYSE:AMT), which boasts a wide moat and has recently reclassified itself as a real estate investment trust.
