Comments Off on Senator Elizabeth Warren on CNBC’s Squawk Box
Did Senator Elizabeth Warren embarrass the CNBC anchors..? Warren says more bank and financial regulation along with Glass–Steagall will help stop the boom and bust cycle in the banking industry. Then, CNBC's Joe Kernen gets on and says Glass-Steagall has no way of passing into law in Congress. Kernen says why is she even trying...what in the world is he talking about. Don't try to do something that will help stop the big bank bailouts and implosions! Is that way he tells people: you're not going to finish the race so why even start? Come on.

Comments Off on Demi Moore Says She’s Been Buying Stocks, Too
In a fit of rage, Demi Moore says she's been buying stocks too, way before Mila Kunis. Not wanting to be out done by Ashton Kutcher's new girlfriend, who received a lot of attention this past week when she told CNBC she was buying stocks, Moore made clear she knows a thing or two about investing in stocks herself. "I don't know if Mila Kunis knows this or not, but I was married to Ashton Kutcher for over 7 years," Moore said between Red Bull gulps. And so, like, yeah, he gave me some stock tips too. So yeah,

Comments Off on 16 Year Old Desperate Housewives Actress Rachel Fox Day Trades
Really, this seems like a strange story to me. Why would an actress get into day trading stocks and try to gain publicity or attention for it? Doesn't Rachael Fox want to focus on acting? Or is this a way for her to get exposure and more acting jobs...she could have just traded stocks without seeking out exposure for it. Instead, she seems to be trying to start a business and company around it, with a website (www.foxonstocks.com) and so on. She's only 16 years old. Who's behind this - there must be someone behind the scenes sort

Comments Off on Does Joe Terranova Still Think Apple is a Generational Buy?
Apple hit a low of close to $483 a share today since it peaked at around $705, does CNBC's Joe Terranova still think Apple is a generational buy? He said he bought some Apple shares at $540 and was buying more when Apple was around $520 a share when the video below was recorded. Terranova called it a March 2009 moment, when Apple was trading for under $100 a share. You do have to say that Apple is close to bottoming out here. That Terranova is right but just off buy 50-100 points give or take - yeah that's a lot

Comments Off on Neel Kashkari’s Logitech Is Getting Smashed
At about the 2:20 mark in the video below, Pimco's Neel Kashkari talks about how he likes the stock Logitech on CNBC. Kashkari says as consumers move away from PCs, they'll need many of the "peripherals" that Logitech sells. However, the stock is getting smashed, down over 18% as the world's biggest computer mice maker lowered their revenue forecast. Yes, you read that right, Logitech makes computer mice which people are using less and less as they move to tablet computers like the iPad.

Comments Off on Kim Kardashian Talks About Her Growing Empire?
Yeah, say what you will about the "Kardashian" sisters, but you can't really call them lazy. Sure, they're not trying to discover a cure for cancer, their just selling makeup and clothes, but they do work hard to sell their products and brand. The question is: how much longer can they do that? How much longer will people be interested in their reality show? Kim Kardashian appeared on CNBC's Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo to talk about the Kardashian sisters new Khroma Beauty line. And Maria waited tell the very end to sort of hit her with a tough question,

Comments Off on Would the Henry Blodget Who Used to Work at Merrill Lynch Say Buy Facebook?
The new Henry Blodget, who runs the Business Insider and shows up on CNBC from time to time, is very calm and rational, there's no pumping up stocks just because Merrill Lynch wants to do business with these companies. Ten to twelves years have gone by, it's a new day on Wall Street, and everyone deserves a second chance and Henry seems like a good guy. Back in 2000 though, during the tech bubble, when Blodget worked for Merrill Lynch, he gave conflicting ratings of stocks, publicly he touted Internet stocks as buys, privately though, he berated them. I'm

Comments Off on CNBC’s Gary Kaminsky Is Growing a Beard
Melissa Lee said his beard doesn't look any better live! Which Kaminksy tries to brush off. How much longer is he going to let it grow? Someone on Twitter called him a financial Ewok. In the end this just could all be for charity. Let's hope so. It's not like he's Ben Bernanke or something. Bernanke's the only one who can
