Smith & Wesson pops big, and Facebook may be buying a drone maker. Here are four stocks making moves on the market today.

Smith & Wesson ( SWBI -26.49% ) was up big today after third-quarter earnings came in higher than expected. The gunmaker also raised guidance. Facebook ( FB -1.77% ) is reportedly looking into buying drone maker Titan Aerospace for $60 million. Hovnanian ( HOV -1.41% ) is falling today after the homebuilder's loss in the first quarter was bigger than analysts were expecting. And in a recent public filing, Chipotle ( CMG -1.69% ) cited climate change as a business risk, going further to say that if the cost of avocados increases too much, Chipotle may suspend serving guacamole.

In this segment from Wednesday's Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Bill Barker and Jason Moser look at four stocks making moves on the market today.
