The top business stories for today's investor.

The following video is from Monday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Evan Niu and David Meier dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

With only nine weeks to go, 2013 has so far been a great year for investors. But with the critical holiday quarter ahead, some companies still need a hit. In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, the guys each give us one pick for which companies really need to succeed this quarter.

Then, David and Evan discuss four stocks making moves today. Shares of Liberty Global were up today after the company agreed to sell most of its Chellomedia division to AMC Networks in a deal worth $1 billion. Burger King delivered a strong third quarter, which had shares jumping up on the news. Fusion IO moved upward today on news that the CEO and chief legal officer were buying shares. And J.C. Penney stock rose, after CEO Myron Ullman told investors that sales trends are improving.

Finally, our analysts tell investors why they'll be keeping an eye on shares of InvenSense and Facebook as earnings season rolls on.
