    Super Mario eyeing telecom??

    va lottery

    Hey gang,

    Coming to you from Los Angeles where tomorrow I’ll be live in Hawthorne, California. I’ll be introducing you to a real-live Rocket-Man, Elon Musk. He’s the co-founder of PayPal, and his company SpaceX is trying to become the WalMart of rockets ships.. making them cheaper and reusable for the future. More on that in a minute.

    But first, Mario Gabelli, Chairman and CEO of Gabelli Asset Management Company (GBL), stopped by my ‘crib’ at Fox Business. He hung out with me in Studio B for "Countdown to the Closing Bell" to talk about where he’s putting his company’s vast fortune next. Here’s why you should listen to Mario: out of all the thousands of mutual funds out there, THREE of his have beaten the S&P 500 *NINE YEARS STRAIGHT*. But you’ll see in the clips how he snapped at me when I gave him that stat… he doesn’t care about those metrics. That’s not how he invests. Hear how he *does* work his investors’ money and where he’s looking next. And make sure to watch Fox Business on Monday starting at 11am ET. I’ll be live next to the Falcon 9, a rocket ship upon which NASA is betting big bucks. SpaceX, the company that makes it, is trying hard to go where no other American Space company has gone: to the land of inexpensive and reusable rockets. Oh, and its founder Elon Musk? He’s also the man at the helm of Tesla Motors which makes the first battery-powered high-end sports car. I hope he brings one of his Roadsters with him to show us.

    Have fun checking out our time with Gabelli. He’s feisty, awfully interesting, and knows how to make money.


Liz what part of California are you from?
