Google, Coca-Cola, Motorola, and Citigroup: Movers and Shakers

Google has just acquired Titan Aerospace, a maker of solar-powered drones. The search giant has said it could use the technology both for collecting high-resolution images and for offering Internet access in remote areas. Coca-Cola stock was up today, after the company beat analysts' expectations for first-quarter earnings. However, revenue was still down 4% for the quarter, amid declining consumer demand for soft drinks. Motorola has now sold off its enterprise business, which makes hardware such as computers, tablets, and barcode scanners, to a barcode printer maker called Zebra Technologies Corp. And Citigroup saw shares rise after beating the rather low expectations for its first quarter.

In this segment of Tuesday's Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analysts Morgan Housel and Mike Olsen discuss four stocks making moves on the market today.
