On Tuesday's edition of MarketFoolery, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts David Hanson and Bryan White take a deep dive into the biggest stories for investors today.

Even though Krispy Kreme's Q3 profit rose 34%, with same-store sales growth for the 20th consecutive quarter, KKD stock took a major blow today. In the lead segment on today's MarketFoolery, David and Bryan discuss why the market reacted so negatively to the company's same-store sales and guidance, and why "cannibalization" may have just become a four-letter word to the company. They then tell investors what they think of the stock today, and what Krispy Kreme's prospects for the future look like.
