What's On: Earnings, Housing and Donald Trump
Here's what's up on Monday's Squawk on the Street:
--Get set for the fun ... earnings season is upon us. Alcoa reports after the bell, and we'll preview it. Shaw Group is down about 12 percent since the quake and tsunami in Japan. This company is in the nuclear engineering and construction business and this could be one of those great opportunities to buy in at a low price.
--We're also talking earnings season with one of Standard & Poor's top people on the subject. He'll be talking about big caps like Bank of America and Citigroup. Plus, Pier 1 is a stock on our watch-list. It is up 41 percent despite all the problems with the American housing industry. Is there still room at the table?
--There's also a brand new survey out on how much American CEOs are making these days. See if all those new rules and new pressure brought the numbers down.
--And we'll have the rare chance (sarcasm) to hear from the always interesting (not sarcasm) Donald Trump. The Street Poll asks if you think "the Donald" would be a good CEO of the United States. Share your opinion, and watch the big show at 9am.
