Thursday brought modest gains for the major indexes, with the Dow adding 13-points. And The Nasdaq gaining 7.
Circuit City is scheduled to report its latest earnings results on Friday. Analysts are looking for a loss of 11-cents. Earlier this month, the company said its sales were looking a bit weak. Products that DID sell well include plasma-screen TV's and notebook computers.
We'll see if Delta Airlines makes up for any of Thursday's losses. Delta is the latest carrier to warn, that it may have to file for bankruptcy. Last week, US Airways filed for bankruptcy for the second time, in that company's history. (DAL, UAIR)
