Occupy Wall Street Marks 1-Year Anniversary: Hot Trends

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Popular searches Monday on the Internet include Occupy Wall Street, the one-year anniversary of the day the protests began in New York.

Protesters are expected to mark the anniversary by gathering near the New York Stock Exchange, not far from the former encampment site at Zuccotti Park. Protesters are using the title "All Roads Lead to Wall Street" for a series of events to take place over several days. A Rosh Hashana service is expected to be conducted near Zuccotti Park, while a concert is being held in Foley Square featuring members of bands like the Dead Kennedys and Rage Against the Machine. Other participants are sleeping on sidewalks near Wall Street. Marches and rallies across the country are also expected to take place.

The Occupy movement remains alive largely in the form of Web sites and social networking ever since it was physically cleared from Zuccotti Park last November.

Lowe's (LOW - Get Report) is trending as the home-improvement supply chain withdrew its $1.8 billion buyout bid for Rona.

Lowe's said it has repeatedly tried to engage in talks with the Canadian home-improvement company's board in order to move forward with the deal. According to Lowe's, Rona's board does not seem interested in the discussions.

Rona rejected Lowe's offer of 14.50 Canadian dollars ($14.92) a share for the company in July, saying it was not in the company's or its shareholders' best interest. Lowe's also faced opposition from lawmakers in Quebec who wanted to keep Rona owned locally.

Lowe's said it remains committed to the Canadian market and still believes a deal with Rona makes sense. Lowe's had been attempting to expand in Canada, where it currently has 31 stores. A deal with Rona would give Lowe's an additional 1,500 stores.

Warren Buffett is another popular search. The billionaire investor said he is finished with treatment for prostate cancer.

Buffett reportedly told a group of executives on Friday that the day marked his 44th and final day of radiation. The chairman and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway (BRK) turned 82 two weeks ago.
