What's On: FedEx, Gold and Education
Here's what's up on Thursday's Squawk on the Street:
--Pier One's big run. The stock is up about 175 percent in the last year. The company reports quarterly numbers this morning, we'll get a look inside the numbers to see if the run can keep rolling, we're calling it wicker in the ticker.
--FedEx also reporting this morning. The company reporting $1.20 per share, a penny below estimates. We'll have an analyst on that as well.
--Gold hitting another new high this morning. The CEO of gold miner US Gold says it's going to $5,000 an ounce, we'll press him though on the "when" part of that statement. We're also looking at the other gold miners including Barrick Gold, Anglogold, GoldFields and Newmont Mining .
--Plus, a brand new report on home foreclosures. Here's a hint: it's not good. See which regions are feeling the most pain.
--And Craig Barrett of Intel fame is here this morning talking about the need to reform American education so that American corporations can continue to compete on the global stage in the next generation.
