Facebook's Growing Influence, Big Lots Earnings, Orbitz's Ouster

TheStreet

Big Lots is set to report earnings today before the bell as we get ready for a long weekend for Labor Day; can the roll of the discount stores keep going? Plus, Orbitz isn't on a roll; the online travel site is off its game after American Air yanked its tickets from the popular website after a pricing dispute. If Orbitz's lack of access becomes a problem for the company, it will wind up impacting shares that already lag behind companies like TripAdvisor and Expedia. And, Jim Cramer's not scared of the Janney downgrade of Facebook stock - he says Mark Zuckerberg has nothing to sweat with more corporate ad dollars heading online.
