Two reasons we think Wall Street is like The Lion King this week: 1) America is still getting used to a new leader of its pride, and 2) Disney is going to be one of the main draws for the next round of earnings reports.

We leave the Scar/Trump comparisons to you, but we look at Disney's earnings in some detail in this week's episode.  We also give another long view on the Fed following last week's (predictably boring) interest rate meeting.  We also dive into the (decidedly not boring) jobs report that came out on Friday.

Finally, as always, we'll roam some of the less traveled savannas on the Wall Street Pridelands.

We've got corporate espionage involving self-driving cars.  We've got a Shark Tank product that doesn't work as well as its company said.  And we've got a Starbucks product that's working too well, leading to long lines and sluggish earnings.
