In the following video from Tuesday's Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analysts Mike Olsen and Taylor Muckerman break down the hardest-hitting stories for today's Foolish investor.
JPMorgan Chase has agreed to pay $13 billion in a settlement with the Justice Department over the bank's role in the 2008 financial crisis. While $13 billion is a record-breaking amount, it's really just a rounding error when you look at the behemoth bank's books. In the lead story from Investor Beat, Taylor and Mike discuss how significant the fine really was and whether big banks are a smart investment.
Then the guys discuss four stocks making big moves on Tuesday. Home Depot is looking up while Best Buy is looking down headed into the holidays. We're not buying Campbell Soup's excuses this quarter. And Nuverra Environmental Solutions continues its wild ride.
And finally, Mike and Taylor explain why they're keeping a close watch on shares of BP and PAREXEL this week.
