Dow Jones Industrial Average

S&P 500

CBNC

reporter Kate Kelly said on the network's "Fast Money" TV, that investors were responding positively to the GM IPO even though the pricing on the offering was raised to $32 to $33 and the yield lowered.

She said the higher price made sense because of the strong demand for the IPO (it is six times oversubscribed) and the rally in Ford and auto parts companies. She said the timing of the IPO was great and credibility of the global auto story.

Terranova said GM's road show had been a phenomenal success. Gary Kaminsky said he expects the stock to pop $4 to $5 on the first day of trading. Kaminsky also believe hedge funds will flip the stock and short it the same day.

As for the general market, Adami was surprised there was more bullish action considering the strong retail sales figures, the

Terranova said the end of the year will be a time for a consolidation of gains and a challenge for investors.

Lee brought in Greg Hess, a college dean at Claremont McKenna, to explain the contents of an open letter he wrote to

Fed

Chairman Ben Bernanke on QE2. Hess said the purpose of the letter was to embolden dissenters by providing a strenuous argument to curtail the Fed's latest quantitative easing program.

He said the U.S. cannot paper problems that are holding back the economy. He said the Fed's move will creatre uncertainty while providing no strategic growth plan. He said it was a risky approach that will hold back companies from expanding and deter banks from making loans.

In the "Watching the Whales" segment, Lee noted that George Sorus was cutting his stakes in

and

while adding to

Adami couldn't understand the move in troubled Interoil, while Kelly said the move in American Axle was interesting in view of GM's upcoming IPO.
