Phillip Harrington, President,

Bizplan

8:10 a.m.

Lawrence Kudlow,

American Skandia

The once-conservative Kudlow has recently distanced himself from his former supply-side supporters. In June, the

Chicago Tribune

quoted him as saying, "Nearly all conservative thinkers and critics are cranky, angry, resentful, frustrated, dejected, pessimistic and declinist."

What he said:

Kudlow is, let's say, an optimist. He strongly believes we are in a new prosperous era driven by high-tech innovations and free economic policies. High-tech leads to higher output and higher productivity, which in turn leads to lower prices and low inflation.

8:10 a.m.

Mary Lisanti,

Strong Small-Cap Fund

Lisanti's $138.7 million fund (

(SCAPX) - Get Report

SCAPX) has had a ... well, interesting year. It's managed a negative 11.6 year-to-date return, ranking it No. 465 out of 467 small-cap funds tracked by

Lipper Analytical Services

. Click

here for more on the fund.

What she said:

Guess what? Lisanti expects an acceleration of earnings growth in small companies. Her favorite stocks are

Lam Research

(

(LRCX) - Get Report

LRCX),

Visio

(

(VSIO)

VSIO),

Uniphase

(

(UNPH)

UNPH) and

Pediatrix Medical Group

(

(PDX)

PDX). She also is bullish on the niche players in the oil sector, especially companies that are involved in cliff or deep sea drilling.

8:50 a.m.

Rick Santelli,

Rand Financial Services

Santelli will be discussing Friday's employment numbers.

9:02 a.m.

Richard McCabe,

Merrill Lynch

In June, McCabe told the

Christian Science Monitor

that he saw the Dow possibly reaching 8200 this summer, but he warned that a 20% to 25% drop might soon follow.

9:10 a.m.

Michael Willis, Chairman & CEO,

CoreStaff

(

(CSTF)

CSTF)

Staff's in your name, you're an instant chatterbox on employment day.

9:32 a.m.

Brian Jones,

Salomon Brothers

In June, Jones told

The Wall Street Journal

that "It's hard to believe with unemployment as low as it is, with confidence as high as it is, that we're in anything other than a temporary low" in retail spending. Today look for Jones' commentary on (you guessed it) employment numbers.

What he said:

Jones was bullish on bonds, saying that as long as real wage gains are being matched by gains in productivity, the former should not be an issue to fret over.

9:40 p.m.

Art Steinmetz,

Oppenheimer Funds

Steinmetz's

Oppenheimer Strategic Income

fund (

(OPSIX) - Get Report

OPSIX) has returned 11.8% this year, a figure that places it about middle of the pack of listed multisector income funds tracked by Lipper.

What he said:

Steinmetz said that in the end, the current growth spurt must be followed by inflation, but he was quick to point out that one must respect what is going on in the market now and he is subsequently buying call options to protect himself.

10:10 a.m.

Mike Weiner,

One Group Value Growth Fund

Weiner's $331.5 million fund (

(OGVFX)

OGVFX) is beating the pack this year. Its 1997 year-to-date return of 19.2% ranks it 59th out of 629 growth and income funds tracked by Lipper.

What he said:

Weiner warned that earnings season is at hand. While prospects look generally good, Weiner predicted that those companies who don't make the grade will be "punished severely." Good thing you didn't miss that morsel.

10:30 a.m.

Tom Hudson,

Lord Abbett Affiliated Fund

Hudson's $6.564 billion fund (

(LAFFX) - Get Report

LAFFX) is somewhat less impressive this year. With a 16.8% year-to-date return, it ranks 205th out of 629 growth and income funds tracked by Lipper.

What he said:

Hudson, a value player, said that with current conditions, he has to look at smaller-capitalization companies to find inexpensive stocks. Two of his recommended stocks are

Deluxe Corp.

(

(DLX) - Get Report

DLX) and

Fortune Brands

(FO:NYSE). Some of Hudson's higher praise, however, was reserved for

Hewlett-Packard

(

(HWP)

HWP), whose new products, he believes, are going to revive the company's stagnant earnings and stock price.

11:20 a.m.

Anthony Abbate, President,

Interchange State Bank

12:00 p.m.

Donald Ratajczak, Director,

Economic Forecasting Center

Ratajcyzak told

The New York Times

in June that "there is no question we are in a period of disinflation, but it may be ending ... a number of items, like computers, are falling a lot. But prices aren't falling across the board." May it be ending? Maybe, maybe not. Punditry.

Arch Crawford, Editor,

Crawford Perspectives

1:10 p.m.

Grover Norquist,

Dave Brady,

Stein Roe Young Investor Fund

Brady's $330.2 million fund (

(SRYIX)

SRYIX) has had a rough year, with a relatively meager 11.8% year-to-date return, ranking it 615th out of 815 growth funds tracked by Lipper.

1:40 p.m.

Michael Wilson, CEO,

ION Storm

1:40 p.m.

Emory Thomas,

MSNBC.com

2:10 p.m.

Arthur Hogan,

Morgan Stanley Dean Witter

2:20 p.m.

Michael Ryan,

PaineWebber

On Monday, Ryan told

The Wall Street Journal

that "given the recent economic and inflation numbers, the only way they'll tighten is if the Fed is privy to a very strong employment report this week." Given the market's recent performance, that would have to be one heck of a report.
