Here's what's up on Thursday's Squawk on the Street:
--Final picks before Christmas Eve. Did you hear Meredith Whitney this past weekend on 60 Minutes and then again on CNBC? She says muni-bonds are in big trouble. We'll talk to another Wall Streeter Thursday morning with a very different take. Get both sides of the story.
--Also Stanley Black and Decker. The stock just hit an all-time high. Would the tools make a better gift or the stock... we're running the same theme with Quiksilver, they making surfing kind of stuff. We're covering both stocks Thursday morning.
--Plus commodities that start with C. Cotton, Copper, Coffee, Crude oil... yes, that counts.
--We've seen a lot of predictions from Wall Street over what the S&P will do next year. Just about everyone's saying, "higher." In fact, they're screaming it. So if everyone's so confident, should you go the other way? Plus, we're talking about Citigroup, Bank of America, Caterpillar and 3M.
