The top business stories from Monday's market, for today's Foolish investor.

In this video from Monday's edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and Taylor Muckerman look into the biggest stories for Foolish investors from the market today.

The Seattle Seahawks were the winners of Super Bowl XLVIII by a wide margin -- that much is clear. What is less clear is which businesses came away winners from the "Ad Bowl," the unofficial competition for the best commercial to air during the game. In this segment, Jason and Taylor talk about how the market is reacting to some of the best commercials from Super Bowl Sunday, whether or not one clever expensive ad can really have an impact on a company's bottom line, and why Twitter may have been the real winner here, despite not airing an ad at all.

Then, the guys look at four stocks making moves on the market today. Mattel hit a new 52-week low today, as the company continues to reel from its disappointing results in the holiday quarter. Amazon.com fell yet again today, as analysts continue to make guesses at when the company will raise the cost of its Amazon Prime membership, and by how much. U.S. Silica Holdings were down again today, after preliminary results for the fourth quarter came in light. And shares of Ford fell after the company blamed bad weather for January sales that were softer than expected.

And finally, Taylor looks at Suncor Energy and how it stands to benefit greatly from news about the Keystone XL pipeline, while Jason talks Yum! Brands, and why he'll have a close eye on the company's same-store sales in China.

Chris Hill owns shares of Amazon.com. Jason Moser owns shares of Amazon.com and Twitter. Taylor Muckerman has no position in any stocks mentioned. The Motley Fool recommends Amazon.com, Facebook, Ford, Google, Mattel, and Twitter and owns shares of Amazon.com, Facebook, Ford, Google, and Mattel.
