Thursday, 14 Oct 2010 | 8:10 AM ET

Here's what's up on Thursday's Squawk on the Street:

--We'll have jobless claims and the impact it's having on the market. This number's been a real market mover. See how it'll impact the Dow, the S&P and the Nasdaq at the open.

--Also this morning, a new grading system for cars could be in the works. We're looking at Ford, Toyota, Honda and Nissan.

--Plus, we found some very interesting information about McDonald's and how the stock price behaves in the days before earnings. Have your brokerage account log-in and password ready to go.

--And a great stock story we've been following for months, WW Grainger. They have earnings this morning and we have one of the top analysts on the stock.

--Also, Apple and Google. Apple has been on a real run, Google reporting earnings today.
