Media Appearance: Kudlow & Company (7/18/06)


Back in the studio for a regular appearance with Kudlow tonite.

The topics will be Isreal, Retail sales, Oil, Yahoo/C/GE/IBM earnings. We’ll see if we cannot squeeze a word or two in about the housing market.

I’m scheduled to be on from 5:20 to 6:00 pm — with Susan Byrne of Westwood Holdings Group, Ben Stein, & Joseph Battipaglia of Ryan Beck.


To mix it up, this week I have a good tie but a bad haircut.

The short list of egregious offenders is after the jump.
