strategy to u.n. ambassador nikki haley. of the united states. there's been a lot of skepticism as well as questions about just how much time you spend in washington. but candidly, we saw today we typically see when the administration wants to respond to something in the media and that is a forceful push back against the report. i want to pull up what president trump tweeted. he says the nbc news story has just been totally refuted by type -- secretary tillerson and vice president pence. it is #fake news and they should america.apology to at the press conference, the first press conference or one of the first press conferences given by secretary of state was him to live pushing back. he said he wanted to reaffirm my commitment to the administration and quote unquote there was never a consideration of leaving. thingsow, it looks like

2:11 pm
2:12 pm
2:13 pm
julia: this is "bloomberg markets," i'm julia chatterley. scarlet: i'm scarlet fu. andrew left has a new target -- shopify. they issued a stinging rebuke, calling shopify a get rich quick scheme. citroen founder andrew left -- but with julie hyman an exclusive interview. left: the market valuing a broker. shopify says they have 500,000 customers. websites. of the 500,000 we know 2500 are shopify plus, which are big merchants enjoying the platform
2:14 pm
to give them credit. 25,000 arenother advanced. what the story is about is who is the other 470,000 shopify users? that is never been discussed on wall street beforehand and as i prove, these are people who have bought into become a millionaire at home, get rich quick, and promises that completely violate every ftc rule imaginable. it's all in the report, the correlations on the parallels to herbalife, it's amazing this has gone on. julie: you talk about their violating rules, you allege illegality. what law is the company breaking? andrew left: they are violating the business opportunities act because they are selling business opportunities, they're not providing websites to stores, they are telling people
2:15 pm
you can be entrepreneur. second, they making claims they can back up. with herbalife, they have distributors that were making bold claims. the shopify, on the shopify website itself, are you ready to be a millionaire? how many millionaires were created today? a sample resignation letter to get your boss once you make enough money on shopify to quit. amazing that this would be $11 billion company. those are all ftc violations. lastly, shopify is able to support this business through what they call their partner program. these partners are bloggers, influencers, and they are also compensated by shopify. it's not disclosed anywhere. that also is a major ftc violation. it's not just one, it's many. julie: let's take the last point first. i spoke to an analyst who likened to that practice to the
2:16 pm
practice of a lot of online retail companies or companies who are trying to sell a product and have various spokespeople who are celebrities or posting on instagram and what have you, and don't necessarily disclose their financial relationship. how is this different from something like that? left: you have to. the ftc has very clear rules about bloggers and instagram ours. it's very clear. also, it's funny. if the celebrity goes on and says i endorse this line of clothing or shoes and they don't disclose it on the bottom, even though they are required to, you could say what is the harm involved? when a blogger writes how they made $10,000 sitting at home at it not true, and you don't know they are being compensated by the company, that's a big problem. for this analyst to say well other people are breaking the law, they can break the law. that means nothing. it?e: what about disclosing
2:17 pm
what if the company does disclose these and removes the language are talking about on the website? it has 2500 core customers that maybe account for the biggest chunk of its revenue. about half of its revenue comes from a percentage of what its customers sell. left: out of 500,000 customers, forget about 2500. let's say they have 50,000. let's say they have 100,000. you have accompanied it's trading at over 20 times ales. after snapchat, this is the most expensive stock on the upper revenue basis. if i took the stock and just given the same multiple been a salesforce workday of service, these are top-of-the-line companies. the best of the best those three. the stoxx get cut in half. shopify.
2:18 pm
when people complain about herbalife, it was an $8 billion company doing $500 million in net income. this is an $11 billion company that loses money trading in over 20 times sales that also is marketing illegally. another parallel to herbalife -- these people are not selling shopify products. they still have to come up with their own business plan. shopify, actually -- you can make money on shopify by just referring people to shopify. as affiliate marketing. is not multilevel marketing, as affiliate marketing. money onlso make shopify by writing blogs about shopify. there are many different ways. the only thing different from herbalife is you're not selling their only profits. revenue is of their not coming from -- how much of a
2:19 pm
paying out to these people? left: this is even better. 50% of their revenue is subscription fees. let's say the other 50% is merchant services. company,re assess you're looking at 85% substantial revenue. it shouldn't even be in the same league with those people at all. i do still trading at over 20 times sales. julie: did you sure this prior to coming out with is at what point do you close out the short? the stock is down sharply. andrew left: i'm still short the stock. every analyst can come out, i don't care if a defendant, but the stock is expensive, it's illegal, it's heavy competition. there's a fund item, this has a lot more way to go on the downside. scarlet: an exclusive interview with citroen founder andrew left. shopify declined to comment. julia: dallas mavericks owner

2:24 pm
after the have either facebook and twitter. emily: what about content? mark cuban: it's not content of your try to promote a specific agenda. it's marketing. content can be fact or opinion, but state it is opinion. , otherwiseporting it's not. they are using retargeting, that's advertising. they are posting it through the ad platform. if you are posting it to the ,latform, it can't be fake news it's a misleading advertisement is the responsibility of facebook and twitter to recognize this is an advertising platform and we can allow these guys to be hosting on our platform. emily: you told bloomberg you are considering getting into bitcoin. having done so? when you think about jamie dimon saying it is fraud?
2:25 pm
mark cuban: there's a lot of assets that the values are based off of supply and demand. most stocks, there's no intrinsic value. you just have the ability to buy and sell the stocks. like baseball cards. i think bitcoin is the same thing. doesn't really do anything else. i bought some through an atm based on the sweetest exchange because i gave you liquidity. emily: pure bitcoin? also involvedm with ico's and token sales, and think block chain is a great platform for future technology. just like the net and streaming created multiple great companies, i think block chain will as well. critical -- mercury protocol, the 20 change the messaging using block chain. emily: how big is your stake? mark cuban: in bitcoin, relatively small. julia: that was wipro

the exact amount from something softbank has yet to be finalized. does the plan to expand the board to 17 seats effectively end the fight between the investor benchmarks and former ceo travis clanick? a professor at the nyu school of business. great to have you on. what do you make of this investment and do you think softbank can curtail the concerns on the board and its decision-making? i think what happened is the feuding investors, the former ceo, have come together to make this investment is possible because, in many ways, it introduces some cash into uber, but it also gives the
2:41 pm
early investors a chance to sell their shares. a lot of the employees will be the to cash out before company goes public in 2019. it seems like a good opportunity to come up with a cease-fire. scarlet: and the plan is to go public in 2019. were needs to decide whether it wants to remain in startup mode and go through market share or company.n-up can't you make the argument that by bringing on dara it has already chosen the latter? arun: in some ways, it looked like they were going toward a faster ipo and converting the current model to being profitable rather than gaining market share in going after the autonomous vehicles. right strategy would be to try to own the transportation business, trying to be the first multi-trillion dollar company.this is a massive industry
2:42 pm
, things are up for grabs here. on the other hand, that will take another few years of losing money, and i am not sure given everything that has happened, they can afford that anymore. scarlet: are they still a company in the sharing economy? are they still considered part of that economy or has it moved on? arun: it depends. my definition is a lot broader than most people's. i think it is certain and direction amazon in many ways is entering the space. uber is certainly in the space of taking an existing industry and converting it, changing the business model, and also converting it into a smartphone-enabled service rather than an ownership thing. it would be under my umbrella. i think in a few years, that label will encompass so much of the economy that it will stop
2:43 pm
start of being meaningful and a certain way. just before, you are describing a situation where effectively they sacrificed future growth opportunities, even if it is asking to move into the autonomous car region, to own transport. you do believe they have sacrificed it because of the other issues. what about the competition they face? they have a number of angles here whether it is the ethics or leisure concerns. the also you have the likes of lyft encroaching on market shares. can they sacrifice that future growth and the risk that implies given what is going on around in the environment around them? i think the most important thing for them to do now is to sort of stem the losses that they have been facing this year. julia: they have a choice basically. arun: absolutely. they have to clean house and stable the ship and bring in a
2:44 pm
team.ment i think over the next few years, what is probably going to happen is the industry will differentiate. you will have people who sort of dominate driven car transportation markets. you will have other people who dominate us on a mistress rotation. cana: do you think if you clean this up over the next 18 months, that will make them go we will not ipo and we can get fresh money in? arun: i think that is a very real possibility, especially given the employees have given a chance to cash out. it is incredibly complex. there are a lot of regulatory risks area there are a lot of making sure the company is ready for the public markets, even more so than a typical company. nobody at this scale has really gone public before. scarlet: in dealing with so many different issues.
2:45 pm
uber had to be steered through the under situation, making sure they were able to operate once again and defend against another lawsuit. arun: he was the right person for the job in terms of bringing the right level of stability. 11 situation is an interesting one because it is the first time -- an london situation is interesting one because of the first time i have seen them object to a company. in a british way, they are saying you are not fit and proper to provide this service someone else can. scarlet: it is like a moral opposition almost. the: it's an highlight growing battle between platforms and governments that is looming. julia: do you think it gets worse for uber that this is the thin end of the wedge or do you think this is as bad as it gets? think in the u.k.
2:46 pm
perhaps it will not get that much worse. i thinkuropean union, it will get worse before it gets better because there is a push back against large american platforms in general, like the battle lines are being drawn between the government and the platforms. you see what is happening with facebook. there is a certain reticence that any government will have to take on a platform that can sway elections. that is something to think about. scarlet: populist anger taking aim at all these new tech companies. thank you so much, professor at the nyu school of business and author ofscarlet: "the sharing " office depot tumbling as it tries to complete a transformation. investors not convinced. office depot announced plans to buy a compucom systems for about $1 million looking into an ugly sellouts. the company is trying to make

8%. store sales will fall 6% in the third quarter. that -- forget about the poor business. it also has to do with the hurricane. we talked about this yesterday. we will hear a lot of companies talk about the hurricane. for some of them, it is an excuse. for some, not. florida is its biggest market and texas is its next because market. it gets sales in puerto rico. scarlet: you had to do something because the merger with staples did not go through. julie: exactly. staples got acquired by private equities. it's sort of got the white knight officee depot did not get. office depot is turning into the acquirer. julia: still ahead, an interview with the puerto rican governor
