Pier 1 falls, and Groupon hits a new 52-week high. Here are four stocks making big moves.

The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Tim Hanson and Joe Magyer dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Pier 1 Imports (PIRRQ) fell today on both lower-than-expected second-quarter profits and lowered guidance for the full year. Rite Aid (RAD -4.92%) soared to a six-year high after strong second-quarter results. First-day sales of more than $800 million for Grand Theft Auto V didn't seem to move parent company Take-Two Interactive's (TTWO -2.90%) shares much higher. And Groupon (GRPN -9.66%) hits a 52-week high on news of an analyst's upgrade. In this segment, Joe and Tim take a look at four stocks making moves on the market today.
