ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. – October 17, 2007 – On the week that the major technology companies report their earnings, CNBC's "Fast Money," America's hottest money program, is going on the road to Silicon Valley on "The Cradle of Innovation Tour." CNBC's "Fast Money" will broadcast live from the Computer History Museum in San Jose, CA this Friday, October 19th.
"Fast Money," airs weekdays on CNBC at 5PM ET and re-broadcasts at 8PM ET. "Fast Money" usually originates weekdays from the NASDAQ Stock Market's street level MarketSite studio in New York's Times Square.
"'Fast Money' is traveling to the cradle of innovation to discuss and debate the best trades behind the next profit-generating revolution," said "Fast Money" anchor Dylan Ratigan. "As the tech companies report their earnings, we also ask, 'What's the trade?' We'll give viewers accurate and actionable information."
"Fast Money" is a rapid-paced, highly-charged hour where four of Wall Street's best traders debate the hot trades of the day. The "Fast Money" traders give you the information normally reserved for the Wall Street trading floor, enabling you to make decisions that can make you money. The "Fast Money" four gives you the news, as only the savviest traders can, with an angle that you won't see until tomorrow's papers.
Ratigan, who also co-anchors CNBC's "The Call" (11AM-12PM ET) and CNBC's "Closing Bell" at 3 PM ET from the New York Stock Exchange, leads informative discussions on the trades of the day with four Wall Street traders: Guy Adami, former executive director at CIBC World Markets and former head gold trader at Goldman Sachs; Jeff Macke, founder and president of Macke Asset Management; Pete Najarian, co-founder of optionMONSTER.com; and Karen Finerman, President of Metropolitan Capital Advisors, Inc.
