Nokia's Big Surprise, Ford's Big Payout, and the Difference Between a Cheap Retailer and a Retailer

The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Charly Travers and Jason Moser, discuss the top business and investing stories.

In today's edition, Nokia had another big pop, and the guys discuss whether this is a fluke or the beginning of some real momentum. Also, Ford has just doubled its dividend not long after reinstating it, and we hear why this is a great sign for the company. And finally, the guys discuss two retailers that are struggling after weak earnings over the holidays, and what the difference is between a retailer that's cheap at the moment versus one that is truly in trouble.
