Paulson Explains Rescue Plan

“What we’re seeking to do is to do something which gives a really strong signal of support for the capital markets. This is about the capital markets. It’s about confidence in these institutions, which are so important to our economy, and to our housing market.”

--Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson

Apple Earnings

“The company is now looking at $1 a share, on a revenue of $7.8 billion. We know that Apple is historically extremely conservative in its guidance and the street takes that into consideration. However, many on the street were at $1.14, $1.25 -- the analyst I was talking to said that anything above $1.14 would be considered good news. And this is substantially below that, at $1 a share.”

--Jim Goldman, CNBC’s Tech Check

Small Florida Bank Sues Dick Bove

“We’re in the business of providing opinion as well, and Dick Bove is someone who provides investment opinion. You cannot be sued for defamation, over an established opinion. You can be sued over stating opinion as fact when you recklessly disregard the truth.”

--Charlie Gasparino, CNBC’s On-Air Reporter

Health of the Banks

“This was the first quarter since the whole housing recession started that we showed a loss of any kind. And it is our expectation that it will be our only quarter of loss.”

--William Hartman, Citizens Republic Bancorp, Chairman/CEO

  • This Nashville antebellum estate is a true Southern Belle. Built in a Greek-revival style, it has a two-story colonnade that wraps almost entirely around the house. You may find yourself seduced by one of the many rocking chairs you'll find on the terrace. There you can relax for hours, looking out over the estate's more than five acres of land. But just wait until you walk through the French doors into the foyer. There you will see a three-story elliptical staircase that may look familiar. (It appeared on the TV series Nashville.) Y'all will never want to leave.
