Media Appearance: Bloomberg TV (05/16/07)

I’m off to Bloomberg TV, for Closing Bell, from 3:55pm to 4:10 or so. We will be discussing the Markets, Fed speak, the slowing economy, various sectors, and whatever else comes up.

Some bullet points I hope to hit:

• GE, Mosaic, Chicago Bridge & Iron (CBI), Service Corp (SCI) are some of the stocks we will discuss.

If you are not near a TV, you can stream it here:

Should be fun. . .
