MOB #93 – GM & Citi Are Out of the Dow

June 8th, 2009 · podcasts

In this week’s episode of Millionaire or Bust, we had a straight news show since I’ve spent the last two nights working on a video promo for Talli’s new video podcast Being Healthy TV until 6 am and I want to finish early enough that I remain coherent. (And for those of you wondering, I’m actually in the promo. I’m the extra with the short hair.) Now, let’s get straight into the news for the week:

  1. Dow finishes the week up 263 points, and the coin toss is at 75% now.
  2. Monumental news, but no surprise: GM and Citi were kicked out of the Dow.
  3. In bank news, regulators shut an Illinois bank.
  4. The US lost 345,000 jobs in May, which was a good sign.
  5. Oil falls slightly after touching a 7-month high.
  6. Gas prices rise above $2.60 after the 40th straight days of price rises.
  7. U.S. pending home sales surge 6.7%.

    Good show. I am glad that the unemployment isn’t as bad as it could be.
