MORE ‘FOR SALE’ SIGNS?

Existing home sales data will be released at 10am Thursday.

I don’t expect it to look too pretty, says Joe Terranova.

PILL STOCKS POP?

Eli Lilly and Bristol Myers Squibb both come out with earnings before the bell.

I’m not looking for too much of a pop from either Lilly or Bristol , says Pete Najarian. Biotech is what's got my eye!

CHEMICAL REACTION

Dow Chemical faces the double whammy of high crude prices and a slowing economy ahead of tomorrow's earnings.

Dow is all about oil, says Joe Terranova.

3M, a maker of everything from office supplies such as Post-Its to welding equipment and fly-fishing lines, reveals earnings before the bell.

3M had some problems over the last few quarters, says Jeff Macke. I’d be cautious.
