Progressive and MasterCard not on your watchlist yet? They should be.

In this video from Tuesday's edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Mike Olsen and Morgan Housel dig into the biggest business stories from Tuesday's market facing Foolish investors today.

In this segment, Mike tells investors about the virtuous cycle that allows Progressive (PGR 0.95%) to grow and pass savings along to consumers, while Morgan discusses MasterCard (MA -0.20%), and the opportunity ahead of the company now that the economy is recovering and its lagging credit card business has a chance to catch up as consumers have more of an ability to pay off their debts.

Chris Hill, Michael Olsen, CFA, and Morgan Housel have no position in any stocks mentioned. The Motley Fool recommends MasterCard and Progressive and owns shares of MasterCard. We Fools don't all hold the same opinions, but we all believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. The Motley Fool has a disclosure policy.
