The following video is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Tim Hanson and Joe Magyer dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

JPMorgan Chase has agreed to pay $920 million in penalties over its London Whale trade last year that went badly. In our lead story, Tim and Joe discuss how concerned they are about the company after this, just how big a fine this was for JPMorgan, and whether or not it is out of the woods.

The guys also take a look at four stocks making big moves. Pier 1 Imports fell today on both lower-than-expected second-quarter profits and lowered guidance for the full year. Rite Aid soared to a six-year high after strong second-quarter results. First-day sales of more than $800 million for Grand Theft Auto V didn't seem to move parent company Take-Two Interactive's shares much higher. And Groupon hits a 52-week high on news of an analyst's upgrade.


Finally, Joe and Tim discuss why they'll be keeping a close eye on shares of CARBO Ceramics and TD Ameritrade this week.
