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

  • Now that Ken Lewis is stepping down as CEO of Bank of America (NYSE:BAC), what grade does he deserve for his tenure?  And who should replace him?
  • Why would Starbucks (NASDAQ:SBUX) enter the instant coffee market?
  • With the worst unemployment numbers since 1983, is there any upside for investors?
  • And how the heck did Rio beat out Madrid and Chicago to host the Summer Olympics in 2016?

All that, plus hear why Moody’s  (NYSE:MCO)Brinker International (NYSE:EAT), and California Water  (NYSE:CWT) are the three stocks our panel is eyeing this week.
