Happy Birthday Maria!

By Chris Ariens 

CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo is one of those unfortunate ones who celebrates a birthday on 9/11. But Bartiromo was fortunate enough today to be presented with a cake (on the air, of course) by her Closing Bell co-anchor, Dylan Ratigan.

We’re told she probably won’t dig in to the cake until 5pmET, when her anchor shift is up. Bartiromo is 41.

Investors got a nice gift today too, the Dow Industrials, NASDAQ and S&P 500 all finished up.
