The following video is from Wednesday's edition of Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Matt Argersinger dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.
Three of Microsoft's largest shareholders are pushing for Bill Gates to step down as chairman of the board, a role he has held since the company was founded 38 years ago. In today's lead story on Investor Beat, Jason and Matt discuss whether the move by these three unnamed shareholders was premature and whether ousting Bill Gates really addresses the heart of Microsoft's problems.
Then, they give investors a look at four stocks making big moves today. Netflix hits an all-time high for the second day in a row. Pandora rises after announcing its latest audience metrics. RE/MAX HOLDINGS soars on its very first day as a publicly traded company. And Burlington Stores continues upward.
Finally, Matt and Jason discuss why they'll be keeping a close eye on shares of Orbital Sciences and Clean Energy Fuels this week.
