Marketplace Morning Report®

Marketplace Morning Report for Tuesday, May 15, 2012

Chipotle Mexican Grill opens a new location every few days, and has seen several quarters of growth while other chains falter. We talk to Steve Ells, CEO, about his company's recipe for success (hint: lots of guac). With shares of Facebook about to go on the market after months of anticipation, how much of a chance does the average shareholder even have of scooping some up? JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon will face shareholders at the bank's annual meeting today in Tampa, and Europeans will face the possible shift away from austerity as Francois Hollande is sworn in as president.
