Boeing just might be bulletproof, but Carnival Cruise Lines definitely isn't. Here are four stocks making big moves.

The following video is from Tuesday's edition of Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Michael Olsen dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

National Oilwell Varco (NOV 1.08%) is up on the news that it will spin off its distribution business in 2014. Applied Materials (AMAT 5.41%) hits a five-year high on the announcement that it is merging with Tokyo Electron to form a $29 billion chipmaking equipment giant. Boeing (BA 2.53%) stock is on the rise despite losing out on a contract to provide 60 F-15 fighters to South Korea. And third-quarter profits for Carnival Cruise Line (CCL 9.19%) fell 30%. In this segment, Jason and Michael take a look at four stocks making moves.
