At The Motley Fool, we know our readers like to be informed. Here's a quick look at today's most relevant financial news, boiled down to what you need to know. In today's video, we cover the following:

  • Coinstar's (Nasdaq: CSTR) new partnership with Verizon (NYSE: VZ) could be big competition for video streaming service Netflix (Nasdaq: NFLX). Coinstar's strong quarter and strategic partnership have the company well positioned to capture market share in digital streaming, which is why I'm giving the stock an outperform rating in CAPS.
  • Coca-Cola's (NYSE: KO) fourth-quarter earnings look good, with solid growth in China.

Not only for Coke, but for many companies, performance abroad is a major concern in the year ahead.
