Neil Cavuto was joined by Jim Rogers, President of JimRogers.com; Fox News Senior Business Correspondent, Karen Gibbs and retired U.S. Army Colonel David Hackworth, whose new book Steel My Soldier's Heart hits the stands next month.
What's happening right now in the Middle East could impact what happens to your money for a long time.
What if we told you the person who holds the biggest key to the future of the stock market isn't Alan Greenspan; isn’t Warren Buffett; but Secretary of State Colin Powell, on a crucial mission for peace in the Middle East.
What does the stock market need to see from Powell's mission to respond with a rally Monday morning?
Jim Rogers says stocks he likes, regardless of what happens in Mideast, are El Paso Electric Company (EE) and Unisource Energy (UNS).
Worth Their Pay?
Should CEO's make millions while us investors are losing billions? Plenty of them do, taking home bags of cash and stock options while all of us are left holding the bag.
Oracle's top dog, Larry Ellison (ORCL) took home more than $700 million last year. His stock? Down more than 50-percent.
And Cisco's John Chambers (CSCO) picked up $226 million while sticking investors with a 70% loss.
Compare that to these guys; Office Depot's Bruce Nelson (ODP) earned nearly $20 million last year. A nice chunk of change especially when shareholders got 160% in return.
And Larry Prince of auto parts distributor, Genuine Parts (GPC) took home just over a million bucks, while investors took a 40% gain in a down market.
Jim Rogers bets against the boss. He thinks stocks being hurt by CEO's are IBM (IBM), General Electric (GE), Coca-Cola (KO) and Cisco Systems (CSCO).
Head to Head
Insurance companies: they love to collect premiums but hate paying out claims. That's especially true when it comes to the damage terrorists do. Since 9/11 they've been dropping terror coverage, and now they want Congress to help pick up the tab on possible future attacks.
Neil says these insurance companies are creating a crisis that doesn't exist.
Ellen Ratner, Fox News Contributor and bureau chief for the Talk Radio News Service, says it's America's responsibility and not the insurance companies.

Colonel Hackworth says Afghanistan = Vietnam?
The war in Afghanistan will morph into Vietnam - like terrorist war and the U.S. troops there will be the meat in that terrorist sandwich. I think it's going to get worse, not only in Afghanistan, but around the world.
Karen predicts: Earning Rally?
I think the earnings that will be coming in fast and furious will be better than expected, particularly with the Dow components that represent the financial and the technical, technology and the drug sectors. They are all scheduled to be released and they should all be better than expected.
Jim thinks: Pension Problems?
A lot of companies and employees are going to realize their pension plans are under-funded. During the bull market we thought we'd be fat and happy but now we're going to realize that that may not be the case. A lot of them may be in serious danger.
And Neil: Blue Chip Fall is Good
They're taking out the big boys like GE and IBM. I think that's a cleansing process. I think it will be good for the market and perhaps this will be the final throes of the bear market.
