AM Minding Your Business for Nov. 16, 2011

Today on American Morning, Christine Romans reports on the morning business news headlines.

This morning, we're watching:

* Right now, U.S. stock futures are pointing to a lower open this morning - after what eventually turned out to be a positive day on the street yesterday.
* Farmland remains a good investment. Prices jumped 25% in the third quarter. That's the biggest one-year jump in more than three decades.
* We could be talking about another bailout, only this one's not for Wall Street. An independent audit shows the Federal Housing Administration could run out of money in the coming year because its cash reserves have fallen so low.
* The U.S. Postal Service is reporting an annual loss of $5.1 billion. It may be no surprise in today's digital age - declining mail volume is one reason for the losses.
* Chase is scrapping three bank fees it had been testing in various parts of the country. Among the charges being pulled: A $10 and $15 monthly checking account fee.
* Shares in the professional social networking company LinkedIn are about to flood the market. Bain Capital, one of the company's early backers, is selling its entire $3.7 million share stake in the company.
