Gene G. Marcial
Gene Marcial has been BusinessWeek's "Inside Wall Street" columnist for the past 25 years and is a former columnist at the Wall Street Journal. Marcial's column for BusinessWeek is considered among the most influential stock columns today and is closely watched by investors and corporate executives alike. Marcial's columns are so influential--a favorable mention in his column often results in a rise in the stock price on the first trading day the magazine becomes available to the public--that others often cite him, including James J. Cramer, founder of TheStreet.com. Mr. Marcial himself makes regular appearances on CNNfn to discuss his week's insights.
