In this segment from Monday's edition of Investor Beat, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Matt Argersinger and Taylor Muckerman look at two stocks they're watching today. Taylor discusses eBay ( EBAY -0.10% ) and the continuing battle with Carl Icahn over whether to spin off its PayPal business, as well as who should be on the company's board of directors, while Matt will be watching Biglari Holdings ( BH 0.08% ). The company owns a Midwest fast casual restaurant chain called Steak 'n Shake, as well as 20% of Cracker Barrel, and has now purchased the men's magazine Maxim. Matt sees Sardar Biglari as a "go anywhere" investor but will still be very curious about how he plans to make Maxim work in a portfolio of restaurant holdings.
