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

--Boone Pickens. Forget $100 a barrel oil, he's calling for $180 a barrel. Will this volatile oil market benefit or hurt companies like Chevron, Exxon Mobile and ConocoPhillips? We are keeping a close eye on energy stocks and watching for alternatives with Mr. Pickens. On his list as always, the natural gas players, stocks like Dynegy and Duke Energy.

--Then, as Germany cuts subsidies on solar by up to 15 percent, what does this all mean for companies like First Solar, Suntech and SunPower?

--There's a showdown in the Lone Star State. A battle is brewing in Texas with Amazon over back taxes. Amazon says it's gonna walk accusing Texas of having a burr under its saddle.

--Then we ask, are you crazy enough to invest in the Arab worldt? Rebellion, revolution and rage... is this enough to make investors say its just too dangerous? We're debating whether the opportunity is worth the risk. Share your opinion.

It all starts at 9am on Squawk on the Street, live from the New York Stock Exchange.
