    Stocks pulled back Thursday after a higher open as Cisco dragged on the Dow. Earlier, the drop in jobless claims had spurred optimism about the recovery. Read and listen to what the experts had to say...

  • AIG_logo_new.jpg

    It’s strange enough when a stock is up 74% in two days, but rarer still when that move is not accompanied by any news to explain it. Such is the case for AIG, whose swift ascent yesterday (up over 8 points) and much of today (it was up over 17% at one point) is attributable to that most painful of investor predicaments: the short squeeze.

  • AIG will for a second day trade over 100 million shares (normal volume: 8 million!) Large intraday volatility again (high: $29.39, Low: $21.30). Stock was $13 two days ago.

  • Huron Consulting plummeted 69 percent in a single day this week after a high-profile accounting scandal, but traders apparently believe that the stock has hit bottom.

  • Brinker, parent of restaurant chain Chili's (down 17 percent on 5x normal volume), is a real shot across the bow for bulls who are hoping for an improvement in sales trends in the second half.

  • Markets have rallied significantly from the lows in March, but how should investors play the second half of the year? David Kelly, chief market strategist at JPMorgan Funds, and Sarat Sethi, partner and portfolio manager at Douglas C. Lane & Associates, shared their outlooks and investment strategies.

  • The market has had a very sharp rebound from last year — and part of that is because "we had a significant overweighting in technology," said David Katz, CIO of Matrix Asset Advisors.

  • Stocks pulled back Thursday after a higher open as Cisco dragged on the Dow.

  • Daryl Guppy, CEO of Guppytraders.com and Charting Asia columnist, offered investors his technical analysis for several financials and mining companies.

  • The hope is that we will see some back to school lift, but Labor Day is the latest possible date this year. There are a lot of tax-free holidays in August, particularly in the South, that may help.

  • There's a little bit of worry about this current rally with respect to whether it is built on solid foundations, Clive Lambert, director at FutureTechs said Thursday about the FTSE-100 index, but added that he is "pretty bullish on this market."

  • Stock index futures pointed to a mixed opening Thursday, with the tech-heavy Nasdaq futures faring the worst after Cisco's chief executive was cautious on calling a bottom.

  • Global stocks were mostly higher Thursday ahead of central bank decisions out of Europe and the UK. Experts tell CNBC now may be best to take profits in China and that investors should not expect a technology boom any time soon.

  • The recovery is here and I’ve been bullish for a while, said Ned Riley, CEO of Riley Asset Management. He offered CNBC his outlook and buy recommendations—and what he's avoiding.

  • Traders buy and sell crude oil futures contracts at the New York Mercantile Exchange.

    Weekly jobless claims and retailers' monthly sales reports combine to challenge stocks Thursday and will likely paint a picture of a consumer still very much under pressure.

  • Stocks ended lower Wednesday, despite a late attempt at a recovery, as disappointing readings on the service sector and employment situation, as well as a cautious outlook from Dow component P&G, fueled concerns about the economic recovery.

  • You can invest in commodities to hedge against inflation, said Jonathan Kleisner, chairman of REX Capital Group. See his top 3 picks.

    Analysts are expecting a late start to the back-to-school shopping season, and that means that retail sales reports for July, which are due out Thursday morning, will likely be weak.
