The following story is from Thursday's Investor Beat, in which host Chris Hill, and Motley Fool analysts David Hanson and Matt Koppenheffer, dissect the hardest-hitting investing stories of the day.

Shares of rival online home-listing services were flying high today. Trulia reported a loss for the second-quarter, but top-line revenue grew 77%. And shares of Zillow were up, as well. In our lead story on InvestorBeat, David and Matt examine the risks and rewards of high-flying growth stocks like these, and share why the real estate market is poised for disruption.

Also, our analysts take a look at four stocks making big moves today. Yelp's quarterly revenue rises 69%. Procter & Gamble closes out the year with more than $11 billion in profit. Boston Beer Company serves up big quarterly profits, while Whole Foods battles great expectations.

Finally, David and Matt each pick one stock they'll be watching very closely in the week ahead.

Dividend stocks can make you rich. It's as simple as that. While they don't garner the notoriety of high-flying growth stocks, they're also less likely to crash and burn. And over the long term, the compounding effect of the quarterly payouts, as well as their growth, adds up faster than most investors imagine. With this in mind, our analysts sat down to identify the absolute best of the best when it comes to rock-solid dividend stocks, drawing up a list in this free report of the only nine that fit the bill.
