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

--A look at hot commodities like you've never seen. We are doing a full special, it actually starts at 1030am, but the show starts at 9am ... with five reporters covering five commodities, literally from the ground up. See how they're mined, farmed and picked ... and how they get from where they're found to where ever they need to be. See who's buying, who's selling, who's collecting and how they're mined and refined. We're covering platinum, zinc, cotton, silver, gold, oil, sugar, wheat and coal.

--Many stocks are impacted of course by these commodities and so are exchange traded funds. We'll also tell you a new way to invest in the space.

--Also, a look at the widely held stocks including Bank of America, Citigroup, Caterpillar and Alcoa which has really been on a run.

Danaher designs and makes consumer products, the stock's near a 52-week high, should you buy in?

And why one analyst believes airline stocks like Continental and American Airlines will shoot up, if oil goes up. He'll explain.

The Street Poll asks you to pick one or the other: stocks or commodities. Share your opinion, and watch Squawk on the Street, starting at 9a ET.
