A case of tuna fish ... and a case of toilet paper ... and a home loan? Since when has Costco been in the mortgage business? Since last year, it turns out. That's when the Issaquah, Wash.-based discount giant began experimenting with offering home loans to some members via its website. Costco is so pleased with how things turned out that it's rolling out the service to everyone. Auto and student loans will follow soon. It makes sense. Costco has very loyal customers, and they're interested in financial services.

NEW YORK -- The Madison Square Garden Co. may be a logical bidder for Staples Center, but would not likely win an auction for the sports and entertainment venue, an analyst said. Anschutz Entertainment Group --  which owns Staples Center along with the Kings hockey team and Galaxy soccer team, among other assets -- has been put up for sale by billionaire Philip Anschutz. MSG would be a logical bidder for the teams and the venue, said Laura Martin, an analyst at Needham & Co. Inc. With a market capitalization of $3.1 billion, MSG would be too small to purchase all of AEG, she added.
