Copenhagen, Cash for Caulkers, and the Rap on Gold

Morningstar markets editor Jeremy Glaser on climate talk traction, the latest jobs initiatives, a new gold indicator, the race to pay back TARP, and more.

Jason Stipp: I'm Jason Stipp for Morningstar, and welcome to the Friday Five. This is our look back at the week's most quirky and interesting headlines for investors. Joining me, as always, with the Friday Five is Morningstar markets editor Jeremy Glaser. Jeremy, thanks for being here.

Jeremy Glaser: Always a pleasure, Jason.

Stipp: So give me five, Jeremy. What have we got?

Glaser: We have banks racing to pay back TARP. We might have a "Cash for Caulkers" program. Copenhagen gets off to a good start. We're going to talk a little bit about what's happening with our Ideas Week and the best ideas we've seen. And finally, a new pundit comes out for gold. We'll discuss the implications for that.

Stipp: It sounds like an interesting lineup. Let's start with TARP.

Glaser: Yeah, I think it's not terribly surprising that after Bank of America paid back their TARP, that Citigroup and Wells Fargo in particular are now racing to pay back as well. They don't want to be labeled as the banks that are too weak to pay back the TARP.
