much better earnings. we have to see something move to reduce our overhead. >> any correlation to the twitters of the market to the submarket?l mall at they seem to be two separate universes third twitter rolling over to be polite? do i care? to degree. you care because it is part of a larger group of constituents. with the loss of the leadership, you have to see another sector. >> here's the dirt. gina martin adams calls on the people that manage our retirement accounts. to the by twitter? to the people managing my money care? >> not as much. there is a followthrough effect of what happened with twitter in some of these highflying tech happenings in the broader s&p 500 index. winds, so sentiment to speak.
>> here's the thing. todd is absolutely right. twitter is its own thing. tech in general trades at 30 times earnings. you're saying earnings go up 10%? -- >> market cap rated companies in the s&p 500 heard when you look at the tech industry broadly, we look at the pe adjusted for market cap. that suggests that tech is only trading at 14 times earnings not 30. if you think about the broad section of tech, you have companies like google in there and facebook. you have ibm and the whole spectrum. it is a much cheaper prospect than an adjusted measures such as yours. addition to being overweight in technology, you are also overweight in health care. what you make of the buyer tax? >> evaluation is not there.
they're relatively expensive where broad tech is not as expensive. we will see if it becomes much bigger. health care has been our favorite sector for nearly three years. there's just a persistent recovery in earnings growth. cyclicality to it. it is broadly been a very strong sector. >> scarlet fu will bring you earnings. we pride ourselves on this one. we go beneath the headline data as earnings come out. jpmorgan and wells fargo on friday. >> we will talk about the dynamics of earnings, the dynamics of resident -- of revenues and what the leadership actually says and does, and the blather behind it. >> gina will be rejoining us

help mr. summers. what is the impact of this over the year? >> our assumption is that the broad impact is valuations will no longer rise with the s&p 500. he said valuations expand and vice versa. so the reduction means no more valuations. >> mr. summers is the vanguard of everyone in the known world. >> absolutely. >> we will, certainly. stable joining in new york today. we will discuss that next here on "surveillance."
six. the rest of it pretty much stasis. nymex crude well over $100 a barrel. let's get to the single best chart, here is scarlet fu. into perspective how big a deal or smaller deal bitcoin is. shows the m1 money supply for the u.s. dollar. monster level is $2.7 trillion heard you have this trillion dollar a 250 $5 billion, then you have quad amalia, anyone know what the currencies: guatemala? the caps off -- the quetzal. about $8 million in market caps. let's unveil where bitcoin sits. $7 billion in market caps.
actually 6.7 5 billion. >> when does this train wreck go away? 465 when i called. >> well, in fairness to matt, i think in november he bought some at around 60 bucks, but that is the whole question, is a currency or a commodity? a safe haven? >> what is bitcoin? mentioned, the bitcoin faithful are gathered here in new york. it is happening today. the better circle the wagons. over the past several months we have learned the following. china and russia have effectively outlawed it heard finland cause of the commodity. here in the u.s. you had better have a social security number if you want to use it. we have a guest
with -- from a securities company. expound on that. what the innovation so important at bitcoin? >> bitcoin is for primarily a payment network. is a very efficient payment network that doesn't have a central hub. minimalt orders or transaction sizes. therefore, it will eventually be the technology of the future for transactions and payment transactions. if it is successful in doing so, it will expand growth to support a large number of transactions. , theat point in time currency itself that fuels it will be meaningful. right now we're at the very early stages. agree withtotally you. we pretty much agree that it has got some interesting computer and technology innovation features. so what, the valuation won't stabilize. where you define a point bitcoin provides stability of
price? >> i don't think it needs to be as stable as the u.s. dollar or gold to be stable. the technologies that run on bitcoin whether or not the prices move. the merchant processors take on some of the risk. consumers of holder take on some of the risk. retailers that except bitcoin don't care about how volatility is. may be volatile for years to come, but that is just ecause -- >> i totally disagree with that statement of retailers. >> last thing you want is foreign exchange -- i would tend to agree with tom on this one, gil. more to the point, countries are outlawing this one. they're doing everything to make sure that people don't use it. why do you think that the technology is going to be relevant? just rename it and collect kilcoyne. same technology but the same
outcome. >> the first my previous points, retailers do not need to take any of the volatility. i would like to correct that point. merchant processors will, some consumers will. retailers are completed shielded. regulation.erms of in some countries, bitcoin will be suppressed. those are usually countries that have something to fear in terms of people taking money out of the country, but in the u.s. and the west, is being regulated. regulatory agencies are speaking up and saying that they would like to regulated the same way they're regulating other financial institutions. they're regulating bitcoin companies in a similar way, which will likely make it possible for bitcoin businesses to thrive in the u.s. and europe . >> in addition to writing long articles on bitcoin, you cover companies from visa and mastercard to ebay and h&r block. what existing companies in your
universe is bitcoin pose a threat to? >> i was a first and foremost the money remittance companies need to look out. western union, money gramm, as human. toittance will be taken down two percent-three percent within a couple of years. later on, this technology is probably going to fuel actual payment networks and a broader sense, especially online. visa and mastercard have to look out. ebay needs to react. if they don't move quickly, paypal will be in danger of being disrupted by bitcoin. >> gil, i bought bowties off amazon. how less efficient was it than if i had used it going at 24 months. what is the arbitrage of transaction between visa and mastercard and bitcoin? is a difference between paying three percent to amazon
or less with bitcoin. defense, he has a nice delta there. innes difference. >> merrill lynch tried to put a value on bitcoin. the camera with a terminal value of $1200. work has the team at wells fargo done on bitcoin? >> we have done some work on the history of currencies and this as a latest iteration in a technologically advancing world heard at an oh-fer put a terminal value on bitcoin. tosonally, i think you have get to some degree of price stability just from a consumer perspective. if you know your buying power is of your currency and it is a very volatile that it changes drastically over time, how do you use a currency effectively? i think that is a bit? that we have yet to answer. when we going to find some stability? >> this is important. kill, can you separate out the
innovation and efficiencies, which everybody agrees are tangible, from the theoretical underpinning or lack of theoretical underpinning? >> absolutely. within a year or two, when you use something that is based on bitcoin technology, you won't even know you're using bitcoin. you'll be on bloomberg businessweek page by page and all you delete -- and i had to do is log in with coin-based technology. when you money remittance to mexico, the philippines, you will just be paying two percent and set up 10%. the word bitcoin won't be even mentioned. the companies that are emerging at a very rapid pace are going to put it: in the black box behind the current so the consumer just gets a benefit and does not have to worry about the volatility. a, thank you for joining us.

charged to companies in which they have stakes. 400 private equity firms were to have unjustified fees and presumably did not necessarily notify the investors. this is according to a person that knowledge to know about this. some have been in air and some could have just been thieves. sort,e of a different winter soldier at a record-setting opening. tom, as you're watching this, you look in fact to it. >> i saw it four times. took ayou so much i worship to it. things, i get up on watched original captain america.

the commentary that management provides in all of this. how they plan to use her money. capital expenditures are something that everyone's been looking for for a long time. i'm the tech companies are starting to deploy some of that cash. >> capital spending is critical to watch. we have got to see the capital spending sensitive corporate management suggest that is going to pick up. does everyone's forecast this year. to see some capital spending recovery to really lift earnings. it is a top line, critically. peak.tter, -41% over is their bear market in nonprofitable stocks? >> than what is that? look at those numbers.
>> if you look at the broad index as a whole, it was all the cheapest stocks that rose the most. >> put up that screen there again if you would. >> is not my community of investors. there probably aren't hedge funds and own it. >> when baker -- from bankers up those numbers, does that push them to move ahead with their ipos? twices it make them think about launching these initial public offerings? when prices are rising and momentum is accelerating, that is why we are getting all these ipos this year. 13.96 on the closing.

used compared to total resource. all the developing economies struggled on those scores. where, it also points you said the u.s. the 16th but g7 countries are between number 10 and 20. it should help those developed economies as well as of the developing to look at other where they should be paying attention. >> thank you for this wake-up up call. u.s. overall 16th in your new study. much is thist, how the broad scope of america, we do things differently, we of a different culture and society? >> i don't think it met -- at the end of the day we are human beings and we need certain things that well-being. i think the u.s. has started to lose sight of the things that really mattered and thinking economic performance is the only

successful. how do you bring the advantages that someoneworked successful has over to someone less successful. how can those struggling in america thrives? >> what i am saying in the book, we are all living under the collect the delusion that the way to thrive and succeed, the more popular word, is to simply burn out. that that is the only way to exceed. because we have a lot of role models who have done it this way, we believe that. but it is totally untrue. i was talking to oprah the other day for her show, and she said at the beginning of doing my show, i used to be so exhausted that i didn't have the energy to take my clothes off. i would sleep in my clothes. do you really think that oprah is oprah because he didn't have the energy to take her clothes off? >> i sleep in my bowtie every night.

two methods of success -- money and power -- that we are missing out on the third metric, i will well-being. >> in the appendices, she has 40 pages on here is what to do. >> and giving was a part of that. it is all in the family because as it turns out, you wrote a s book -- aaron hurst' he powerfully sums up the purpose economy. what is it about purpose, giving, the notion that we are becoming bigger than ourselves? stronger,faster, smarter and now we are trying to get more human. i think we're getting to the point in the millennial generation. they are mandating that. in your business, how are you helping your employees improve the well-being? a lot of ceos are struggling. have an of all, we e-mail policy that makes it
