Here's what's up on Friday's Squawk on the Street:
--Earnings, housing, the economy and the Ben Bernanke of Canada. Ahead of the open, we're watching shares of Nike, which just posted profits and is trading near its one-year high. Following the durable goods report, we're taking a look at how big appliance stocks are doing and what their performance tells us about the consumer.
--Plus, regional bank stocks. Some are in a better position than others to withstand the shock of ultra low rates. We'll tell you which ones and whether now's the time to buy.
We're spanning the globe to find the world's best peforming stock market. And you'll never guess where this trip took us.
--At 10 eastern, it's all about housing. New home sales hitting the tape. We'll have the numbers for you first, plus immediate market reaction and look for any sign this crucial segment of the economy is climbing its way out of the basement.
--In a rare and exclusive interview, our Steve Liesman sits down with Mark Carney, the Governor of the Bank of Canada. The Canadian economy emerging from the financial crisis unscathed, the country is hiring, raising rates and its economy is growing. Find out how the man in charge of the Canadian economy plans to keep things solidly on the road to recovery.
--Also at 10am, the House Financial Services committee is looking into executive compensation post-finreg. But has anything changed when it comes to outsized pay packages?
