In this video from Friday's edition of Investor Beat, host Alison Southwick and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and James Early take a deep dive into the biggest business and investment stories from the market today.

Shares of LinkedIn fell today after the company released its Q4 earnings report. Despite beating on earnings and revenue, 2014 guidance projected less growth than analysts were hoping. Clothing retailer GAP is up today after announcing that January sales beat expectations. Specifically, the company's Gap and Old Navy sales were up a bit, though sales were down at Banana Republic. And Activision Blizzard is up today after releasing its numbers for Q4. Profits were down 51%, but the numbers were still better than analysts were expecting. In this segment, James and Jason take a look at three stocks making moves on the market today.
