- Update: Fox Business LIVE 6pm ET Sunday
As we continue to monitor the path of Hurricane Irene we have changed our broadcast plans. We’ll be starting our live coverage two hours earlier. As I wrote yesterday, and as I monitor the coverage now, there are a few key things I’ll be watching for as Irene heads north. As of now there are [...]
- Here We Go Again
The markets are once again selling off on concerns about government debt and the effect on the economies of both Europe and the United States. It’s been another roller coaster, but it’s one we have ridden before and will ride again. The problems on both sides of the pond are different than what we faced [...]
- Rachel Roy to FBN: "Macy's a Great Partner"
As part of our American Icon at Macy’s, I had the chance to speak with Celebrity Designer Rachel Roy. She couldn’t have been a nicer person to interview, and she really wants to make a difference in the world!
- Can Congress Compromise?
After last night’s Presidential address and GOP response from House Speaker Boehner, many Americans felt that Washington was doing more of the same, and felt frustrated and angry about it. Take a look at the latest ABC News/Wapo poll: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/more-dismal-poll-numbers-obama-gop-debt-crisis-131137433.html Yet we found common ground between two Congressmen today from both sides of the aisle: Rob Andrews of [...]
- Phillippe Cousteau Jr. Launches "GIVE"
His famous last name aside, Phillippe Cousteau Jr. came to prominence during the BP Gulf disaster in April of 2010. Outspoken and passionate about saving the ocean, he now has a new cause: “GIVE”. Cousteau Jr. partnered with AdvisorShares CEO Noah Hamman to launch the ETF (exchange traded fund) with some of the proceeds from advisor fees (gasp!) [...]
- Did Cars 2 Save Disney?
Disney doesn’t need saving, but Cars 2 had a remarkable run at the box office. This segment was from the Friday prior to opening weekend, and I find it fascinating that, despite the critics lambasting the movie, it performed amazingly well. Dennis Kneale says exactly that in this preview segment:
- "Who Do You Think You Are?"
Ancestry.com CEO Tim Sullivan weighs in on the company’s success and how the site has found a distinctive niche in Americans desire to trace their roots back to the old country. A fascinating interview, although I have yet to begin the “Casone” background check.
- Katz to FBN: "Double Digit Gains in 2011"
While many see a doomsday scenario for the equity market, David Katz from Matrix Asset Advisors sees opportunity. Here’s his take on the rest of 2011: “While short term sell off might continue, we are bullish for the balance of 2011. We expect stock to end the year with low double digit gains.” “We recommend buying into [...]
- Ben Bernanke Goes Hollywood
There is a piece of me hoping that at some point in Ben Bernanke’s press conference Wednesday afternoon. his second as Federal Reserve Chairman, that he channels his inner Paul Giamatti from HBO’s “Too Big To Fail”. If you view Mr. Bernanke the way Hollywood does, then you can expect him to express to the [...]
- Joplin, MO: A Tale of Two Cities
I wasn’t comfortable initially with doing a segment about the desperate plight of homeowners in Joplin, MO that were scrambling to find shelter. Storm victims have been buying/renting up every available piece of real estate since the tornado, an unforeseen but positive event for the local housing market. Maybe there is a broader lesson here: the U.S. rental [...]
