What's On: Employment, Small But Feisty Stocks
Here's what's up on Wednesday's Squawk on the Street:
-- It's all about jobs and your money: Immediate market reaction at the open to the big employment report number, plus reaction from the White House and Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. Plus, why one of the President's top economic advisors decided enough was enough on the eve of the employment report.
-- Also, more earnings that offer key insight into the recovery. On our watchlist everything from food to fertilizer to tankers — Kraft, CF Industries, the CEO of Nordic American Tanker and more.
-- Plus, the first of 4 eagerly awaited private-equity backed IPOs prices. The CEO of Dutch chipmaker NXP talks to CNBC first, following the opening bells.
-- And some small caps are making outsized gains, more than doubling in the past year. We have a list of small stocks offering some big returns.
-- Back to jobs, and why some say taxpayers are paying people to remain unemployed. It's today's Street Poll, and a debate that's front and center on employment Friday.
Watch the opening bell on Squawk on the Street, we're live from the New York Stock Exchange. It all starts at 9am eastern.
