Wednesday, 17 Nov 2010 | 8:34 AM ET

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

--The big story is of course GM's IPO. Will Americans drive the cars? Is this company really ready to list? Will investors buy in or just flip it? We have all the answers this morning, or at least a lot of really solid and sourced speculation.

--Target reports numbers this morning. Find out what's going on with this stock as we head into the retail shopping season.

--We'll also check in with Wal-Mart, Macy's, JC Penney and the other shopping stocks.

--We also have the CEO of Rio Tinto. There's a ton to talk about here from global commodity protectionism, the company's issues in China to the currency fight and how it's impacting commodities all over the world.
