A giant drop in weekly jobless claims. The Labor Department says there were 346,00 new claims filed last week, down a whopping 42,000. The report comes as welcome news to investors worried by the March jobs report which showed just 88,000 news jobs created for the month-- not even close to keeping up with population growth. Yahoo! Finance "Hot Stock Minute" host Lauren Lyster discusses the report with Yahoo! Finance Senior Columnist Mike Santoli. The two also talk about retail sales which are being released today, as well as a report on plummeting computer sales.
