AM Minding Your Business for Nov. 18, 2011

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

This morning, we're watching:

* U.S. stock futures are trading higher at the moment, after another shaky session on Wall Street. Concerns about Europe's debt problems still pushing markets lower worldwide into today.
* We're keeping an eye on Spanish bond yields. They were up to that critical 7% level yesterday – that's the level at which other countries had to seek international bailouts. But the Spanish government insists Spain will not need a bailout from the EU.
* American retail icon GAP is still struggling. Profits dropped 36% in the third quarter and sales were down 6%. Banana Republic and Old Navy also owned by the gap.
* Black Friday is one week from today, and the National Retail Federation estimates that 152 million people will be hitting those sales this year. That's up 10% from a year ago.
* The Honda Civic natural gas model is taking home the Green Car Journal's "Green Car of the Year" award at the l-A Auto Show this week. This is the fifth generation of this model, and it's been praised for its great fuel efficiency and roomier design.
