Friday's TV Talkers

Publish date:

CNBC Guests

All times EST

6:10 a.m. John Lonski,

Moody's Investors Service

The first fellow in a long parade of pundits who will discuss today's employment figures.

8:10 a.m. Shel Johnson

Morgan Stanley

8:10 a.m. Jim Rogers,

Rogers Holdings

Rogers has spent much of the early morning praying for a terribly strong jobs report? Why? Because last week the ever-worried Rogers said that if bonds should rally sharply (something like above 109 on the futures) it would represent a great shorting situation. Well, those bonds have rallied. Is Jimmy shorting?

8:20 a.m. William Sullivan

Dean Witter

This economist has led the bearish chant for several weeks. Don't expect him to change his stripes this morning.

8:40 a.m. Neil MacKinnon,


First post-jobs news reaction from a pro -- albeit a London-based pro.

8:50 a.m. Rick Santelli,

Rand Financial Services

Say this for


, they really know how to get it going on a big statistics day. Santelli, a familiar face to loyal viewers, will offer the view from the Treasury futures pits in Chicago (maybe he's taking Jimmy Rogers' order).

9:03 a.m. Brian Jones,

Salomon Brothers

and John Ryding,

Bear Stearns

Shockingly, Mr. Jones and Mr. Ryding will also discuss the jobs report.

9:10 a.m. Mitchell Fromstein, chairman and CEO,


The jobs news, now 40 minutes old, will provide Fromstein with another chance to talk about how things are going on the jobs front.

9:20 a.m. Richard McCabe, analyst,

Merrill Lynch

The jobs-related mania contiues, with the quasi-bearish McCabe offering sage reasons why the current rally is tired.

9:32 a.m. Michael Boss,

Aubrey Langston

Boss offers more Chicago-based news related to the jobs report. Imagine Mark Haines, talking jobs with 32 experts in-a-row!

9:40 a.m. Carmine Grigoli, strategist,

Nomura Research

Amazing, but true, Grigoli will be the ninth person this morning to discuss the jobs and employment news. We should have a good handle on it by this point.

9:40 a.m. Keith Mullins, emerging growth strategist,

Smith Barney

Mullins is a stock-picker, not an economist, but with the employment report they need as many chatterers (Numero 10!) as they can get. For a profile of Mullins, click


10:00 a.m. Jack Blackburn,

Harris Futures

Bond market banter. Anticipate talk about the jobs/employment and inflation type stuff.

10:30 a.m., Howard Ward,

Gabelli Growth Fund

Gabelli himself was the Squawk Box host Thursday, but Ward's the one in the firm with the real record lately. His $612 million fund (

(GABGX) - Get Report

GABGX) is up 5.3% this year, a return that puts it about the top 5% of growth funds tracked by

Lipper Analytical Services


11:30 a.m. Tony Crescenzi,

Miller Tabak Hirsch

12:50 p.m. Bill Howard, executive editor,

PC Magazine

1:10 p.m. John Chuang, CEO,


Are there still Mac Temps?

3:20 p.m., Alberto Vilar, president,

Amerindo Investment Advisors

Top money management firm? Maybe according to some measure. But the firm has certainly seen better days. Though its mutual fund (just a part of its money management operation) was up more than 7% for the week -- an up week for the networking stocks that Vilar favors -- since its October inception the fund is down 41%.

4:40 p.m. Lawrence Kudlow,

American Skandia

Formerly the brain behind NJ Gov. Christie Whitman's economic plan.

5:40 p.m. Tony Chancola-Flores,

Brown University

6:11 p.m. Joseph Perkins, reporter,

San Diego Union-Tribune

Looks like another "good Bull Session!"
