The Detroit Auto Show kicks off today.  General Motors new CEO Mary Barra got a head start, hosting her first major product introduction on Sunday.  She unveiled the 2015 GMC Canyon midsize pick-up.  The Canyon and its corporate companion, the Chevrolet Colorado, are set to go on sale later this year.  
Ford will be unveiling something new at the show. The reinvention of the F-150 pick-up trucks. For the first time, the new trucks will feature a body made from lightweight aluminum alloys.

More retailers are confirming customers data may have been stolen.  Over the weekend, Neiman Marcus confirmed that about a million customers may have had their data stolen last month.  We're also hearing that three more major retailers may have been hit as well.

The price of beef is on the rise. The wholesale price of beef is setting a new record thanks to last week's historic winter storm.  It slowed the number of cattle coming to the market.  Right now, the US cattle herd is the smallest in 60 years.
