WALL STREET WEEK AHEAD

NEW YORK â¿¿ What's not to like about Dow 13,000? While most of Wall Street cheered when the index closed above that level this week for the first time since 2008, some are wringing their hands. The Dow is leaving other indexes in the dust, like the curiously sluggish one tracking shipping companies â¿¿ a bad sign for stocks. A rundown on a few odd market moves that have even the bulls concerned. By Bernard Condon.

SMALL CLAIMS VS BIG COMPANIES

NEW YORK â¿¿If you feel cheated by a big company and complaining gets you nowhere, what do you do? A few recent cases demonstrate that consumers can, if they're motivated enough, win small-claims cases against big companies. These "David versus Goliath" battles were won against the likes of AT&T, Honda and others without lawyers. The plaintiffs paid minor filing fees, gathered their own research and presented arguments in quick hearings that resemble the average "Judge Judy" episode. Thanks to the Internet, these victors are connecting with other consumers in an attempt to help them achieve the same success. By Peter Svensson.

DAVID STOCKMAN-Q&A

NEW YORK â¿¿ He was an architect of one of the biggest tax cuts in U.S. history and made a fortune in corporate buyouts. But these days David Stockman is a different man â¿¿ an advocate for higher taxes, a critic of the work that made him rich and a scared investor who doesn't own a single stock for fear of another financial crisis. Some questions and answers with the former White House budget director, including why he thinks you'd be a fool to hold a stock today. Or anything other than a few bars of gold. By Bernard Condon.
