The following video is from today's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with Jason Moser and Joe Magyer, discuss the latest business news. Fears that Spain might need a bailout were the latest worry about Europe among investors, and the so-called "fear index" reacted accordingly. The Volatility Index was up 25% today, the biggest one-day jump since last November, while every stock in the Dow was down this morning. In this segment, the guys analyze the role that fear plays in investing and share why they believe now is the time for patient investors to look for stocks to buy. In particular, they share why they believe TD AMERITRADE and Ecolab are undervalued and worth a second look.
