4:30 AM Hugh Johnson, First Albany
The oft-quoted Johnson has made a career out of being the most reachable of all market strategists. Expert at offering few sharp opinions, Mr. Johnson is famous for spouting such market aphorisms as: The Trend is Your Friend and Don't Fight The Tape. Look for Johnson to warn about weak earnings and high interest rates, but in no particularly threatening way.
