What's On: Oil, Gold, Earnings and Housing

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

--Earnings, gold, oil and housing.

Two Dow components release results along with 18 members of the S&P 500. AT&T, United Technologies, Wells Fargo and Altria just to name a few of the heavyweights that we'll be tracking ahead of the open and after the bells ring.

--Gold will also be big on the agenda with the precious metal hitting new highs. But what's the best way to play it? Gold bars? Stocks? ETFs? We'll talk to one fund manager who says the uber popular Gold ETF is a train wreck waiting to happen.

--Sticking with commodities, we'll have breaking energy news at 10:30 a.m. ET sharp. The weekly oil inventory report more critical than ever. Immediately following a closely watched strategist explains why he thinks prices are at a tipping point.

--Then there's housing. Existing home sales numbers are out at 10. No one is expecting to see a revival in the housing market. And if the best thing for housing is a 10 percent rise in home prices, should the government pay to bulldoze foreclosed and abandoned homes? It would get rid of the excess supply.
