                 Amex lost some big exclusive partnerships recently – how will it hit results? 
More on that coming up but first, the hot housing market expected to get even 
hotter. Forecasters predicting a gain in existing home sales in June to an 
annual rate of 5.4 million - that is up a tad from May when sales hit their 
highest level in five and a half years. Strong data could help convince the Fed 
to stick to raising rates this year. Next: earnings from Boeing. Now, last week,
the manufacturer said it would take a $5.36 million after-tax charge related to 
its aerial refueling tanker for the US Air Force. That led analysts to cut their
numbers including Jefferies, but the brokerage is sticking to its 'buy' rating, 
seeing the cost over the project as a short term issue. The stock is up about 
10% this year. And your top story: earnings from American Express - investors 
looking for information on how the world's biggest credit card issuer plans to 
boost sales following the lost of its exclusive relationships with Costco and 
JetBlue. Amex's CEO had indicated that the company might cut jobs to improve 
margins and achieve previously set moderate to long term targets as it faces 
cutthroat competition from Visa and MasterCard. The stock is down about 15% so 
far this year, in the bottom five of the Dow Industrials. I'm Bobbi Rebell. This
