Marketplace Morning Report for Tuesday, November 20, 2012

We'll get quarterly earnings today from Hewlett-Packard -- and when we do, we might see even more signs of  a big shift away from personal computers, and toward tablets and mobile devices. Is there still any money to be made selling PCs? It turns out that the Twinkie might just last a little longer, as Hostess Brands will be back at the bargaining table to try and avoid liquidating the company. And speaking of negotiations, players and owners of the NHL are expected to meet this morning to try and bring an end to the 66 day old lockout.
