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

--It's going to be another big morning for financials. Goldman Sachs' CEO Lloyd Blankfein has hired a high profile defense attorney. The stock is under pressure on the news. Then, there's Bank of America. The stock is trading at $6 and change. We're talking to outspoken BofA shareholder Jonathan Finger.

--Plus, gold futures hit a record $1900 an ounce. The price moved an astounding $1000 an ounce in less than two weeks. That brings us to today's Street Poll. Where do you see the price of gold in five years? Share your opinion.

--Also, earnings that track the consumer. We'll have the trade on consumer staple Heinz and high-end retailer Williams-Sonoma.

--At 10am ET sharp, new home sales will hit the tape and it could move the homebuilders, including Lennar and Toll Brothers. We'll have the numbers, analysis and market reaction.
