The Power Pitch

  • CNBC's "Power Lunch" is giving CEOs a chance to make a 60 second "Power Pitch" aimed to convince a panel of experts that their start-up has what it takes to succeed.

Power Lunch

  • Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen speaks during a news conference.

    Traders will be listening intently to the Fed's language as investors remain convinced that current policy stays solidly in place.

  • Customers shop at the Somerset Collection shopping mall in Troy, Michigan.

    The season will be "decent" but new Apple products will take business away from traditional mall retailers, one analyst said.

  • Ted Kemp, CNBC.com senior enterprise editor, reports just how pirates attack vessels and siphon liquid fuel or confiscate hard cargo, before selling it on the black market. Angelmar corp. President & CFO James Christodoulou, provides perspective on the issue.
