#2 Ruth from Texas

Ruth writes, “What is your outlook on insurance stocks considering the subprime meltdown? What is their exposure, or can anyone assess that definitively yet?"

Guy Adami thinks insurance stocks could go lower. He’s concerned because he doesn’t know what insurance companies own.

Eric Bolling adds hurricane season gets serious starting August 1st.

#3 Jason from Florida

Jason writes “Where do you guys see Blackstone (BX) going from here?  I have been short since it dipped below $29.  How long do I ride this train wreck down before taking profits?”
