  • NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker said on Thursday he was not looking to spin off or sell some of the company's assets.

  • Another day with plenty of cross-currents. The bottom line is that a $5 spike in oil right near the close of trading in oil (2:30 pm ET) dropped stocks, the Dow lost all of its 120-point rally, though it came back a bit toward the close.

  • GM will not consider selling or eliminating any brands besides Hummer and has no plans to declare bankruptcy, Richard Wagoner, General Motors chairman and CEO, said Thursday at the Dallas Chamber of Commerce.

  • General Motors Chairman and Chief Executive Rick Wagoner.

    The message from General Motors chairman and CEO was clear and direct: The company has no plans to cut anymore of its brands. I asked Wagoner about cutting the brands when I caught up with him after a speech here in Dallas.

  • On Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis' speech on mending the mortgage markets, it turns out Mr. Lewis isn't universally loved.

  • Marks & Spencer's top dog Stuart Rose faced the wrath of investors at the company's AGM yesterday – but not necessarily for merging the roles of chairman and CEO or for profit warnings.

  • When media moguls and tech startup CEOs gather for casual, culture-clashing sessions in Sun Valley, I can't help but marvel at the remarkable mix of styles. There's nothing like catching a CEO who feels safe in his pin stripes awkwardly sporting bermuda shorts.

  • The tech titans and media moguls schmoozed and chatted through the first full day of meetings at the Allen + Co. Conference. It was a quiet day in terms of deal buzz; perhaps largely because the Yahoo folks haven't arrived yet.

  • Here are two clips from Bank of America CEO Ken Lewis' speech today on mortgages. Most importantly he sees no need to cut the dividend or raise capital, but "it is hard to be completely unequivocal about anything." And the second clip shows highlights of his speech.

    As I watched my White Sox finish a sweet sweep of the Cubs last night, I talked to my friend Mike from Detroit. He's a great guy, despite his love of the Tigers.
