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

--It's Friday the 13th, and we're asking traders and market watchers about their superstitions.

--And as we head into the weekend we're talking aobut beer and pizza. Beer can maker Crown Holdings and pizza companies Domino’s and Papa John’s all are trading near 52-week highs. Should you eat and drink up these stocks?

--Another day, another IPO. We'll talk to the CEO of of Kosmos, an energy company heavily invested in Africa. And we'll look at Broadsoft and Molycorp. They're the best performing IPO’s so far this year, both up more than 300 percent over the year. Sixty-two companies have IPO’d so far this year. We'll go through the list to see who else could walk onto Wall Street and have another special report about the failure of several Chinese IPOs.

--Then we'll reconvene our small business council. One of the guests owns the largest authorized AT&T dealership in the country. We’ll talk to him about the latest merger with T-Mobile and Apple.

--Cloud companies Oracle, Red Hat and Citrix all enjoying sky-high stock prices as large corporations look to expand data storage. Which one could be your rainmaker?

--And is the United States becoming a rental economy? People are renting everything from houses, cars to furniture and handbags. With the 30-year mortgage hitting 4.63 percent we want to know if you think buying a home or renting is a better deal right now. Share your opinion, and watch Squawk on the Street starting at 9 a.m. ET.
