The following video is from Wednesday's edition of Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Bryan White and David Hanson dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.
Men's Wearhouse (NYSE:TLRD) jumped today, after rejecting an unsolicited buyout offer from competitor Jos. A. Bank. Yum! Brands (NYSE:YUM) fell after reporting that third-quarter profits dropped 68% and the company lowered guidance in China. While fourth-quarter profits for Family Dollar (NYSE:FDO) rose 26%, the company issued weak guidance, which mattered more to investors than trailing profits. And Costco (NASDAQ:COST) got a boost today, even though fourth-quarter profits rose only 1%. In this segment, David and Bryan look at four stocks making big moves.
