On Tuesday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts David Hanson and Bryan White take a hard and fast look at the day's top investing stories.

U.S. automakers reported some strong numbers for November, with Ford (NYSE:F) up 7%, and General Motors (NYSE:GM) up 14%. Could these stocks be an interesting buy for investors seeking strength and stability? In the lead segment of today's Investor Beat, Bryan and David talk about why the auto industry doesn't excite them at the moment, and why even today's red-hot IPO market doesn't make Chrysler's potential IPO next year any more interesting.
