Abercrombie's High-Risk Strategy

The following video is from Tuesday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and analysts Jason Moser and Matt Koppenheffer dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Shares of Abercrombie & Fitch rose today in the wake of several analyst upgrades. The retailer has lagged the market in recent years and has generated some controversy along the way. Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Mike Jeffries has said the company wants to be exclusionary and go after "the cool kids." And the retailer doesn't offer XL sizes in women's clothing. Does that strategy make sense for investors? That story, plus four stocks making big moves on Tuesday's market, and two stocks we'll have a close eye on as earnings approach.

One stock coming up on a very interesting earnings report is Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. With Green Mountain cheaper than it's ever been, many investors are wondering whether this is the end of the former market darling, or the perfect entry point for an enormous rebound. You can find our recommendation for how to play the company in our premium research report.
