Being in the news business has its moments. Getting to the heart of a matter, discovering something new, providing an insightful view on an important topic. But news also is unpredictable, as we discovered this weekend.
The tragic disappearance of
John F. Kennedy Jr.'s
plane pre-empted our inaugural television show on the Fox News Channel. Believe me when I tell you it was a good show, with
James J. Cramer
slinging along with
and others. Read Cramer's blow-by-blow
account of Friday's taping to catch up on what you missed. There's a chance the inaugural show will run before the bell on Monday morning, but we will definitely be back next Saturday at 10 a.m. EDT. We are, of course, undaunted. And we look forward to next week's show.
Television aside, we are continuing to hustle for information that will make you wiser investors. Through the scorching heat of summer, we are tracking important earnings news and other corporate developments. We know that you have a lot going on in the summer, so we encourage you to check in from time-to-time with our markets team to see how things are progressing in the stock market.
John J. Edwards
and others are closely watching the financial markets so that when you bop in from the beach for a quick look-see, they will have the latest dope on what matters to you.
One of the show's ace performers,
Gary B. Smith
, will be getting cozy with readers on Tuesday, July 20 during a
chat. If you have questions about technical analysis, or Gary's swimming kids, be sure to get to the Yahoo! chat at 5 p.m. EDT. Registration is required, but it is free. Go to

So get ready for another exciting week. Though it's deep summer, this stock market is showing few signs of relaxing. We'll be on the case.
