What's On: A Case of the Mondays, Multi-Nationals and More
Here's what's up on Monday's Squawk on the Street:
--What happens to the lenders and the bank stocks if the housing crisis gets worse? This morning we're watching JP Morgan, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Fifth Third and more.
--Plus a new segment we're calling, "A Case of the Mondays." We're looking at beaten down stocks, with a chance... I said chance of getting a pop. This morning the big loser is Smithfield Foods, down 11 percent in a week.
--We have a look at the large multi-nationals that may have had big quarters last quarter due to the dollar's decline. We're watching GE, DuPont, Caterpillar, 3M, Microsoft, Intel, Coca Cola, Boeing, IBM, Kraft Foods, Procter & Gamble, Travelers, Wal-Mart and Alcoa ... should you?
--And a new push to ban texting and calling while driving. That's also this morning's Street Poll, with more than 5,000 deaths in the U.S. in 2008 directly tied to distracted driving, is it finally time to change the rules?
