    3We've been busy here at PowerTalk, sharing my conversations with key players at public and private companies as well as other institutions of influence. I started PowerTalk to share with you the kinds of conversations that mutual fund and hedge fund players are having with the same kinds of people.

    In other words, I wanted to bring you behind the scenes and in the know on some of the key topics of the day that investors and traders are facing. Those are the same conversations I utilize when use selecting investments for new newsletter PowerTrend Profits.

    It's been so successful that listeners have been asking for more. And that's what we're about to do.

    Starting today, I'm adding a second weekly installment to PowerTalk that will share my conversations about the latest happenings over the last several days that are driving the stock market. Be it economic data, politics, or specific company news that is driving the stock market higher or pushing it lower, I'll be talking about it each week with Keith Bliss, Senior Vice President of Cuttone & Company, right from the floor of the New York Stock Exchanges

    This week Keith and I dish on the rise in both gas prices and taxes and what it means for the consumer following Walmart's (NYSE:WMT) weak start in February; the most recent Federal Reserve minutes that hint at a back peddling in QE3; the pick up in M&A activity; and of course what the sequestration could mean for the economy and investors.

    I also touch on what I'm expecting out of Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) annual shareholder meeting set for Feb. 27 as well as the plethora of news from 2013 Mobile World Congress. The latter means many announcements from the likes of Qualcomm (NASDAQ:QCOM), Nokia (NYSE:NOK), Motorola (NASDAQ:GOOG), Sony (NYSE:SNE) and others including carriers like AT&T (NYSE:T) and Vodafone (NASDAQ:VOD).

    As tends to be the case with PowerTalk, there's a lot of ground to cover so let's get to it.
