1-800-Flowers' biggest day of the year gets crushed under a mountain of snow. Plus, why Coca-Cola and Waste Management tumbled today, and one massive biotech merger that the market loved.

1-800-Flowers (FLWS 0.25%) took a hard hit after it lost out on profits from the company's biggest day of the year, Valentine's Day, because of a massive blizzard dumping heaps of snow all across the eastern United States. Coca-Cola (KO 0.36%) fell today after announcing that revenue was down for the full year and the fourth quarter, with profit down as well. Waste Management (WM 0.30%) shares took a tumble after the company missed earnings expectations for both its top and bottom lines. And pharmaceutical company ACTAVIS (AGN) has announced that it will acquire Forest Laboratories (NYSE: FRX) for $25 billion in cash and stock; both stocks are up on the news. In this segment from Tuesday's Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analysts Taylor Muckerman and Mike Olsen take a look at five stocks making moves on the market today.
