In the latest installment of our Motley Fool Money podcast, advisors Seth Jayson, James Early, and Shannon Zimmerman discuss some of the big questions of the week. 

With unemployment hitting a 26-year high, is now the time to look at stocks like IBM (NYSE:IBM) and Johnson & Johnson (NYSE:JNJ)? Why would Wal-Mart (NYSE:WMT), the nation's largest employer, support a government plan for employer-mandated health insurance? If we're at the bottom of the auto sales market, is it time to look at companies like Ford (NYSE:F) and Toyota (NYSE:TM)? And would Bernie Madoff have avoided a 150-year prison sentence if he'd simply taken up tap-dancing in his youth?

All that, plus hear why Wal-Mart, Lowe's (NYSE:LOW), and AutoLiv (NYSE:ALV) are the stocks our panel is eyeing this week.
