The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Erin Kennedy, and Motley Fool analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson, investigate the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.
Today's movers and shakers were all consumer-oriented stocks. Matt looks at retailer Guess? (NYSE:GES), which jumped 12% after reporting second-quarter earnings yesterday, and The Fresh Market (UNKNOWN:TFM.DL), which dropped nearly 10% following earnings and a downgrade. He compares the two companies' reports in terms of expectations vs. actual performance. David discusses SeaWorld Entertainment (NYSE:SEAS), which came public again this year, and Campbell Soup, (NYSE:CPB), an iconic company that's stumbling today after a generally positive earnings report.
