Revised U.S. GDP And Impact On The Markets

The U.S. government says the economy grew at a faster pace in 3Q than previously thought. GDP rose 2.2% in the period -- that's above Wall Street forecasts and up from previous estimates of 1.6% growth.

Burns feels inventory is working itself through and says the ultimate end benefit user is the consumer. Burns says the consumer is smart and it will likely be a good Christmas season.
