tv   Closing Bell  CNBC  May 26, 2016 3:00pm-5:01pm EDT

3:00 pm
why not. the s&p up a little bit. the dow down a little bit after two days of big gains. the irrelevant index as we debated an hour ago and the nasdaq is hire. >> so for our entire family, i thank you for watching "power lunch." >> "closing bell" starts right now. ♪ i think i know what that music is and i think i should know. welcome to the "closing bell." i'm kelly evans. >> i'm bill griffeth. you are wise, kelly. that's the "walking dead" theme song. you see there the man who plays daryl dixon will be here. norman reedus will talk about his new show called "ride."
3:01 pm
and, of course, kelly will be interested in this. who killed egan. >> we've gotten more discussion. amc has if the new thing coming out. we'll have plenty of questions with norman reedus. we've got an interview with howard schultz, ceo, about his push of starbucks to china. and you saw it live here on cnbc. donald trump wrapping up the news conference after clinching the nomination. we'll talk energy among other things coming up. ceo at the happiest place on earth isn't hopeful with bernie sanders. we'll tell you what's going on with this one coming jup let's start with u.s. foods, their initial offering, and how that
3:02 pm
may help the ipo thaw a little bit. mary thompson on the floor. hawaii, mary. >> hi, bill. things were quiet but now it's hopping. u.s. foods was one of four stocks to make their debut here at the new york stock skparng. let's take a look at where it's trading right now. it priced at 23, which is toward the high end of the range, but it's up ever since. now 2471. why is it -- it's the second largest ipo of the year and basically marx -- it's one of six that traded today. 31 ipos so far in 2016. as farr as numbers go, it's down. consider this. we're starting to see a pickup in the number of companies going public. there were only six, there there were seven in april and 18 in may. again, six of those happening today at the new york stock exchange and at the nasdaq.
3:03 pm
and, again, u.s. foods being the highest ipo. you can see. take a look at the intraday on the stock. it's the second largest food distributor in the u.s. and so far with the gain, it's the tenth best performing ipo in its first day of trading. but roy we're starting to see in what is typically a slow summer business, year over year is still down about 50%. but, again, investors are very happy to see a recekre recent p the month of maying. >> momentum for the markets. oil is also continuing its dramatic comeback. $50 a barrel. jackie deangelis has more. >> that's right. we didn't close there. we actually closed a couple of cents lower. $49.48 is where wti finished the session. interesting because oil price over 50 is something people think we're going to get before
3:04 pm
going to the holiday weekend. short covering responsibility for some of the support we've seen. paem don't like to go into a three-day weekend. it's that what if mental. meantime year to date oil prices have risen about 35%. they're up 50 np the last three months. we receive such wide swings in price. usually we're talking 5 to $10. the upside limited from here most say. about 51 and to the downsiding maybe 48. about a $3 rairj in the coming weeks. the reason we're seeing support, they don't be the fact that the dollar is backing off. also the global supply outages are concerned. still big problems in nigeria. also refinery strikes in france are in focus. finally that summer driving demand certainly kicking off as people get to hit the road and go way for the weekend. that's going to boost things. gasoline seeing a high as well.
3:05 pm
certainly that's reflected. we could test again tomorrow. maybe get the close there as we head into memorial day. >> jackie, thank you. is it just about traffic? is it just this city? it was crazy the last couple of days. >> it has been. traffic, traffic everywhere, people heading out. let's get to our "closing bell" exchange. the notorious eugene profit from profit investments is back with us. rick santelli checks in from chicago. john, i don't know -- i'm going to sound like i'm grasping at straws here but it's the first time in a while that we've had a pretty decent market without a big pullback the next day. we're kind of sitting here. what do you read into the market here? >> we are. it's very refreshing to see the nonactivity that we're seeing
3:06 pm
today. this market needed to see a real decision. it seems like it's not strong enough to take a step to the next level but there's not enough negative news out there that's going to force us into selling or taking away any of those gains we saw this week. there's no panic when is this going to turn south. we're heading into the holiday weekend and to go with the same mentality that jackie spoke about with oil, i don't think people are going to want to hold onto the positions. you might see a selloff tomorrow but nothing to be concerned about. i don't think we're going to get anything too shocking or unexpected for this mark. so i would expect somewhat of a quiet day the rest of the day today and tomorrow. >> okay, eugene. if we look back at the year, it looks like energy is leading the way. it looks like health care down
3:07 pm
2%. where are you placing your money? >> well, i think that's actually quite interesting. if you look going back to october, it's been weak. now it's come back up to where it's touching near 50. i'm actually in consumer discrecharies. i'm somewhat in health care. i think a lot of what's been going on is a lot of short covering going on. interestingly enough, if you look at the s&p 500, all three of them are pretty poor performers in the last three months. they've got their gain really only in the last week. >> all right, rick. what do you see that catches your attention as we head toward the memorial day weekend here? >> i think our guests have nailed it. i'll tell you we have closes in every market outside the ones involved in equity.
3:08 pm
i think that three-day weekend, 3 1/2-day weekend with the early closes has really accelerated a lot of the version that normally goes on in front of a weekend. so we're looking at the highest prices, lowest yield of the week and all the complex. the catalyst, as soon as that seven-year auction was done and the $88 billion and supply moved out the door, you could see a sea kmaunch. crude oil, i know you're going to see it tomorrow but you might have seen the effect today. durable goods orders. a lot of debate. we can go into the weeds but suv face it to say, forget percentages. up 0.3. think about the proxy for capital investment, orders. nondefense aircraft. think of that total dollar amount. the benchmark revisions moved it lower. now we look at our percentages again, but really it's because
3:09 pm
of the dollar amounts. they didn't retooth what was some good news in durables but the business investment, we talked about why, whether it's obama. kind of doing it on the fly. all these things have caught up to us. hence we're kind of in this 2% economy. you know, the fed's debating what to do. it could last like this for a lot longer. >> you know, ju jean, we have this interview coming up with howard schultz of starbucks. you mentioned you like the discretion. do you like all of it and why is it a sector you like to be in in. >> actually i like to be contrarian. if you look at a lot of the consumer discretionary earnings, it started last week. then on the o'hand, you've seen that. i this i the way the company's executing, you're going to get performance on a long-term
3:10 pm
investor and sort of the trade of the short term news and so i'm not concerned about the impact of companies across the board. i own starbucks. they've done quite well over this time period. i do know they paid a huge price. that plays a very major role in the actual performance in the companies. >> john, we all know $50 is sort of a pivot point for a lot of oil traders and oil companies and countries that develop oil as well. what does it do to the stockmarket? do you carry it with it or is it a headwind? >> i think it would l be a headwind. i think investors are comfortable when we keep it as a
3:11 pm
night four-point range. it seems as we step higher, the overall effect of oil prices on our equity markets, we're not going to see that lockstep move. if we continue to move higher quickly, that might be movement for the equity stockmarkets. >> we'll see what happens. gentlemen, thank you. we've got 50 minutes left in the trading session on day when the dow has been slightly lower. not a lot of volatility. the industrial average was down 47 points at its low, now down 18. we'll be mentioning it's the 120th birthday of the dow jones industrial average in 1826 when 12 stocks started trading at the new york stock exchange as an average. >> don't google it, but do you know the stock that's been in it the entire time? you know it. i know it because of him. that will be up. a straight month of gains. starbucks announcing plans to open a coffee roastery in china.
3:12 pm
up next, howard schultz discuss this big plan overseas. >> bob iger, the slam against long-time presidential nominee bernie sanders. coming up, why so many heads of business are coming out of the shadows to take on bernie sanders. and wells fargo launching a 3% down payment mortgage. 3%. are banks forgetting about the kinds of risky loans that sparked the housing collapse? sheila bair ways in later on the "closing bell." you pay your car insurance

3:16 pm
starbucks announcing a new roastery location in shanghai. a strategic move in china. i sat down with ceo howard schultz to get his take on that market. we've been there 17 years in china, we have over 2,000 stores. we talked about this before, about how much faith and confidence we have in the growth of china. the roastery has exceeded our expectations. it creates a disperse mnlts of theater and romance and we felt so strongly it belongs in china. we've got a location second to none in china. it will be neck and neck. what opens first. china or new york. but it will be back to back. >> i was also surprised to read shanghai has the highest number of starbucks locations of anywhere in the world, is that true? >> that's true. over 300 stores in shanghai and still growing. our business in china continues to be quiet robust. you know, we've talked before.
3:17 pm
i believe very strongly over the long term. there certainly will be some cyclical changes in the economy there, but we're built to win there. i wouldn't be surprised if one day we have more stores in china than we do in the u.s. >> which is remarkable. you guys have two 2,000 locations i understand, but 7,000 in the u.s. you're saying you're going to make the chinese market bigger than the market here in the u.s.? >> i think it's very possible that our business in china will grow past the u.s. and the reason is we've been so successful in china over many years and we're just starting to get the morning daypart where we're educating local chinese to drink cove in the morning. what's really encouraging is how well we've done in the secondary and tertiary cities. we have over 100 cities. we're actually taking our entire board to china in a few weeks which is indicative of how
3:18 pm
important it is to share strategically with them what's happening. we're positioned lie no other consumer brand or western briks and mortar retail. >> would you accelerate the pace of your store openings? you said it's 500 already. but could you ak selling raise that? >> no, i don't think's possible to open more than one store a day. in speaking about china, shanghai disney will open on the 16th and our partnership with disney has been so successful over the years and i think my good friend bob iger who gave us the pull position of starbucks opening at the entrance of shanghai disney on the 16th which again speaks to the power of the starbucks brand and the confidence that disney has in starbucks. >> how much does a coffee go for in that location? >> similar to the pricing we have, you know, throughout china, which is consistent with the u.s., and i think, you know,
3:19 pm
what we've demonstrated over many years is the chinese people view starbucks not only in terms of a luxury brand but value for their money. we look at yum! brands and they've had some struggles in china. there are a lot of tech companies that have had to pull out in china. by the way there are those who are concerned with relations with taiwan or issues in the south china sea. how can you remain confident that china is going to be the place starbucks can and wants land do business going forward? >> well, kelly, i probably have been to china over the last ten years as much or more than any other public ceo, and i've gone there not only with the intent of building our business but working with government officials at the local and state level demonstrating the values
3:20 pm
and the conscience of our company. what we're doing is quite unusual and the relationship we've built with our municipalities. there are going to be cyclical changes as they go through this significant economic transformation, but i think what we've established early on is a great enduring relationship with a local customer and as i said the municipalities, and i'm very optimistic over the long term that we will succeed there and build long-term value for our shareholders. >> would a recession in china whether we know it or not, if that were to happen, would something like that slow your plans at all or would you continue to accelerate through that? >> i think we will stay on offense. opening 500 stores a year over the next five years, you know, if there's something cataclysmic, that certainly could change our plans, but we have no intent of slowing down. we're building our business in china and playing the lone game
3:21 pm
and feel very good about our strategy. >> last question. there's been as much focus on india as there have been for others including apples of the world and that sort of thing. what's left for you guys to crack? >> i'm glad you brought up india because we don't get a chance to talk about that very much. india is market where we've got a great partner with one of the leading companies in the world, and that's tata. we have a hundred stores in india including major cities. growth will be slow because of infrastructure issues but our growth in india is going to parallel the growth in china in terms o the number of stores we'll have over the long, long term. again, market that i think is great for us, we just opened in south africa. i think the continent of africa is all white space for starbucks. we're engaged a number of conversations and emerging markets there. and, again, we're still early on. even in our domestic strategy,
3:22 pm
we're opening 200 to 300 stores alone in the u.s. don't lose sight of this fact, which i think is so vitally important. over the past five years, our best performing class of stores are the stores we've opened this year. so despite the stores we've opened in the u.s., we're finding growth opportunity and great unit economics. >> so there you have it. i mean they still see huge potenti potentials. by the way, the same-store sales, sales in the u.s. are still quite healthy. >> he used to say this a lot but he doesn't say it anymore or he hasn't lately. it used to be that they would create their own demand. each store created its own demand. when you talk about the number of stores in shanghai and how they're going to increase that, look around new york city and washington, d.c. and chicago. they're on almost every street corner as it's created its own demand. starbucks is nothing more than a coffeehouse but its genius is
3:23 pm
that it sells an atmosphere. and i've never heard howard describe it as he did today, theater and romance. that's a perfect description of the atmosphere they're able to create universally around the world. >> yeah. it's an interesting point. when apping just opened that san francisco store, one of the things that we heard them say about it is they wanted it to be the gathering space. so a lot of companies are realizing that being the gathering space itself is very valuable. something starbucks in way has pioneered. that's starbucks ceo howard schultz. keeping an eye on the market, the dow is down. the s&p is higher by two. the transports are down. the vix is higher. the russell is up a bit. the larger story i would say is the dow is looking for its fourth straight month of gains here. the russells, their third respectively. donald trump officially
3:24 pm
qui clinching a delegate. we'll talk about his energy poll sig coming up. >> and is the media energy the apple of apple's eye. we'll hear from somebody who says the tech giant has discussed a major deal with a media company. stay tuned. no one surface... no one speed... no one way of driving on each and every road. but there is one car that can conquer them all. the mercedes-benz c-class. five driving modes let you customize the steering, shift points, and suspension to fit the mood you're in... and the road you're on. the 2016 c-class. lease the c300 for $359 a month at your local mercedes-benz dealer.
3:25 pm
3:26 pm
welcome bachlk. markets in consolidation mode. the dow up in the red barely and the s&p up 14.
3:27 pm
let's send it to susanly for an update. >> nathan hup bard who's ahead of media, both are leaving according to multiple sources. she's leaving on her own accord according to these same sources. meantime his depower tur comes after he dissolved the commerce team that he headed up. no specific departure dates are noun just yet but twitter has been shrinking its work force, laying off 8% left year. they'll now be umbrellaed under one person, currently the vp running twitter's amplified. heal take on all the responsibilities both leaving expectations. as with twitter shares, we e saw the leg down after of these two departures. back to you. >> susan, thank you very much. donald trump is in north dakota. he's speaking right now about energy policy, on this the day he clinched it.
3:28 pm
he's giving an address at the petroleum conference. energy in general and the keystone pipeline in particular were popular lines of questions that he received during that news conference. he gave his support to the controversial pipeline but with a caveat. >> i'm saying yes, we will absolutely approve it. i want to build. but i want a piece of the profits because we're making it possible to happen through eminent domain and other things. i want a piece of the profits for the united states. >> joining us now, a delegate from north dakota and supporter of donald trump. welcome, sir. >> welcome. >> thank you. thanks for having me. >> so this particular way of kind of setting out the trump agenda, how would it be different from president obama's? what jumped out about his comments and how important would
3:29 pm
the keystone pipeline be going for? >> it's critical. they're the number two producer of oil in the united states and tremendous jobs come out of north dakota because of the energy field. it's down a little bit now. there's so much overregulation going on in the oil industry, also at the pipeline. and you see the same thing with coal. north dakota is a big coal producing state. this is going to be a huge major policy speech which is different. they want to shut down the energy industry. and donald trump made it very clear, one of his top goals is to have the united states be energy-independent. >> i'm glad you brought up the coal question because when you do the math, i wonder if it adds up. many coal workers have lost their job because of the more attractive pricing of oil because of the fracking. can you have it both ways if he's promoting more fracking,
3:30 pm
which, of course, has been a boon to the north dakota economy as well as other parts of the northern plains, but can you also put more coal workers back to work if coal is nowhere near as attractive an energy source as oil from fracking is? how can you have it both ways? >> one of the concerns in north dakota is we have a number of coal plants that have not shut down. we produce a lot of coal and we don't want to lewis those jobs. they're high paying jobs. the coal workers in north dakota have enjoyed a high standard of living because of the coal industry and it's not only doing new products but it's keeping the coal plants open that are keeping open cheap electricity. of course, natural gas is cheap and you're seeing conversions. so much of it is attitude. hillary and bernie sanders, they're over the top when it comes to producing energy from fossil fuels. they're wrong and the wins
3:31 pm
they're promoting is not cost effective at all. >> it looks like donald trump has clinched the delegates for his nomination, so is the attention starting to pivot toward the convention this summer and what you do expect as that draws closer and out of the convention itself. >> well, i talked to some of the trump staff earlier today. and they're saying this is like none other. he will be very involved in the process. now that he's hit that number and i'm excited, he was in north dakota. he picked up a number of delegates. you saw earlier where the press conference, i was one of them. 6 they pushed them over the top.
3:32 pm
>> i believe it's going to happen. he gets the nomination. so i would to love see it happen. americans would love to see it. it's been great. >> thanks, gary. >> thank you for having me. time now for a cnbc news update. >> hi, bill. good afternoon. here's what's happening. two navy jets collided off the coast this morning. the navy says the two f 18s were on a routine training session. a commercial fishing ship pulled all of them out of the ocean. they were taken to the hospital with only minor leaders. >> they discuss long wait times at the nation's airports. they all blame high attrition and staffing as the problem. baylor university has demosted kenneth star after an

investigation found fundamental failure by its handling of sexual assault of football players. starr served as a basis for clinton's impeachment in 1988. they also fired the coach. and pittsburgh is aegd to their practice team. theory not human. it's a remote robotic tackling dummy that's helping the team run drills in off-season. i understand it weighs about 140 pounds and never gets tired >> and yet somehow it wouldn't seem to be as fun watching two teams of them do that. >> you can do that but it's called video games. >> or foosball. >> thank you. less than 30 minutes left in the trading session. the dow celebrating its birthday with a nine-point decline.

3:37 pm
welcome back. a little less than half an hour to go in the trading session. for a look where markets might be moving next, i'm joined with mark new tennessee of newton advisers. what have you got for us today? >> they move back in high territory, so here's a daily chart of the s&p going back. it's interesting. there are three reasons to be optimistic. one, you're starting to see more and more signs of the sector into the positive financials, technology that accounts for almost -- close to a third of the s&p. that's a very good reason.
3:38 pm
we receive great breadth and momentum. we've hit the highest level in years. the third is sent mentalism is up look at what's happening going on with the political scene with the fights breaking out. if that gives you any picture of the public sentiment, people are getting discouraged. >> you're saying they may have another opportunity. >> my thinking is they'll probably get to 22.50 by late july, august. i think it's right to take any dips from the trading perspective. we are short-termover done here. think i you want to buy dibs and i think we're going to move a little bit higher into the summer. >> that will be a big move. thank you so much. mark newton. bill? >> all right. lionsgate, one of the biggest gainers after a surprise quarterly profit. they were expecting a loss. but the problem was thanks
3:39 pm
largely to strong tv revenue and now the company is hoping to give its bottom line a boost by auctioning off one of its biggest tv hits. that would be "mad men." julia boorstin hits the block with it. julia? >> that's right. some 1,500 items from "mad men's" 92 episodes over seven seasons. what i think you'll like the best is a bar and globe from peep campbell's office. the sunglasses and lighter and take a look at this. we have peggy olson's famous typewrit typewriter. the bidding will start at less than $100. the auction online by screen bid that specializes in items from tv shows. they receive a certificate of authenticity and a screen print of where it was in the show. lionsgate then gets the rest of the yev knew from the sales.
3:40 pm
but perhaps more valuable the is surge of attention for the show which can drive people to buy episodes on i toouns or amazon or screen episodes on netflix. it's building more devoted fans which means growing demand for this kind of auction. so there's no official word on how much this auction expects to bring in, but likely well over a middion. screen bids' chairman estimates it generated more than a billion in annual sales so certainly a hot area to watch especially now that people can watch shows when they want. >> how much you'd pay for peggy's typewriter? >> i don't know. it's cool. a couple of hundred? >> all it takes is two people who really want an item and the bidding can go sky high. we can talk tens of thousands of
3:41 pm
items. if you look at an item like don draper's chevy, that could go for hundreds of thousands. you just don't know how much fans want to have some of these products. don draper's glasses, you could wear them now. it's not just about putting them on the shelf. >> have they put a minimum on each of the items, do you know? >> they haven't set them yet. some of the items are less than $100. the auction starts on wednesday and is up for about ten days. we'll see how they set the numbers. they say some items will be less than a hundred. it's really about how much fans want these products. >> we're about to find out. julia, thank you so much. >> that bar would be kind of cool. >> all it takes is one willing bidder. >> long ago i learned you never buy something when somebody wants it more than you do. >> there's some familiarity with stocks. nasdaq's up 12. captain hook, javar, and

3:45 pm
so have you wished the dow happy birthday. it turns 120 years oil. it doesn't look day over 110. it was first rated this day in 1896. in that time from then to now the dow is up 43,900%. that's a 4.81% annual return, almost 5%. you were asking earlier, the one stock. when it originally traded on this date, there were 12 components at that time. g.e. performance, i thank
3:46 pm
everybody. the g.e. stock in that 120-year period is up. interestingly -- it's not the oldest index. it's older. a remarkable track record for the dow. happy birthday. disney's bob iger is the latest to rip democratic hopeful bernie sanders for his comment about business. eamon javers has more. >> here's one of the things that bernie sanders said about disney earlier this week. take a listen. >> while disney pays its workers wages that are very hard for their workers to live on but somehow has enough money to pay $42 million to its ceo.
3:47 pm
>> he's responded on his private facebook page, bob iger writing to bernie sanders our company has yated 18,000 new jobs in the last five years, how many jobs have you created. so a very pointed response there from the ceo of disney to senator sanders. we're looking at a presidential campaign where specific companies have been called out more on the campaign trail than at any time i can remember in covering presidential politics, especially on the republican side where you also had donald trump going after amazon, apple, carrier, all by name. so this is a campaign cycle. and we're likely to see more of this through the fall where if you're the corporate p.r. person and a large american company, you might have to find yourself in situation where you're defending yourself and a company against a prtsal candidate. that's something we haven't seen at least to this degree in presidential politics.
3:48 pm
>> i also am surprised at those speaking out. >> how you do handle that? >> senator san dors big thing is the ceo to average worker pay ratio, and, you know, as he points out, they did pay bob iger $42 million compared to what they pay their average work e. bob's just looking at the number of jobs created but bernie's looking at how much they pay those workers. >> implicit in bob iger's response is he feels he's worth it, right? he says they've created all these jobs. it's good for the region and the country and his implication is his job is justified. a lot of ceos feel that way. whether they feel comfortable arguing in public is in question. he put it on his private facebook page. we don't know who always subscribes to it. maybe it's his cousin and guys he went to high school with. it was enough for media to

joom eight minutes left in trading session with the dow down 21 points. joining us now kevin nicholson from river fund investment group. i can't tell you the number of money managers who sat where you're sitting and say they love investing in japan right now, but you're pulling money out of there right now. why? >> we pulled money back because their quantitative easing program was disappointing. it didn't have the same effect that we had here in the u.s. also, they've had poor communications, to be quite honest, when they announced the negative interest rate policy, they didn't make their banks
3:53 pm
awa aware. what happens was their bangs were unequipped to handle negative interest rates so it forced a lot of money that was sitting on the sidelines to have to go into currencies. institutions were sitting with extra cash, they went into currencies that caused the yen to rally and it hurt other exports? are you finding others attractive or are you keeping money in the u.s.? >> we like europe. and in europe we focus on low volatility, names such as, you know, reits and, you know, that area and financials. the big thing there is we have stayed away from banks. you have reits, insurance companies, things of that nature and utilities. we feel that if brexit happens, that will be less hurt -- that sector will be less hurt. >> do you think it will happen? >> i don't. >> the polls are kind of mixed
3:54 pm
right now. >> i really don't think it will happen. when you look at the pound, the pound has been rallying of late. you also when you look at the oddsmakers over in england, the odds are for them staying in. >> right. >> and if you really think about it, it would do more harm than good if they leave the eu. we just spoke with a technical analyst who said the s&p could be at 2250 this summer. what do you see ahead for u.s. stocks here? >> i think for now we're going to have a slow grind. you know, when you look at the earnings disappointed in the first quarter, i think that we're at a really low bar, so we probably will see a little bit more up -- you know, up movement here. >> do you go with the same sectors here that you do in europe like the financials as well if, in fact, we're expecting the fed to raise rates? >> yes. we like financials here. in our portfolios, we've been focusing on the regional banks. >> okay. >> we've stayed way interest the
3:55 pm
insurance companies but we do like the low volatility space here in the u.s. and that's where we have been kind of filling in our underweights because overall we've been overweight to europe and underweight to the u.s. for some time and we're just covering those gaps in our portfolios at this juncture. >> very good. very good to see you. kevin nicholson joining us. by the way, they like to bet on anything in the uk, and right now you can get 4-1 odds that brexit will not happen. >> will not happen. people often look to the private markets, betting markets to see. >> we'll take a break and come back with a closing countdown? just sa a moment here. after the "closing bell" will batman become apple's new property. >> or possibly another media outlet. apple as a media company. we'll look at the possibilities coming up. you're watching cnbc, first in business worldwide.

3:59 pm
the biggest here, almost 29%. >> i thought we had a graphic that showed how we were doing. wi us wrong. demand clearly was there for a big spade of ipos coming to market. >> that's right. u.s. market was a first because it was over $4 million. gypsum management supply also saw a strong demand. we're looking here which priced at 19. it's going to be down about 9%. >> oh, wow. >> yes. a mixed picture for the stocks making their debut here. i mentioned those three because they're the biggest. those are the ones everyone was watching today. >> we're going out with a decline of 26 points. the s&p of 2089. >> you know, it's been interesting to watch. it's had a lot of trouble getting to that 2095 level. good data, despite decent earnings, the ipos, et cetera.
4:00 pm
of course, we've been waiting for it. >> just ahead of memorial day weekend, wouldn't you know. thanks, mary. we're going out with a decline of 26 points. they're celebrating the dow's 120th anniversary at the big board. stay tuned for hour number two of the "closing bell" with kelly evans. see you tomorrow, kel. >> thank you, bill. welcome to the "closing bell," everybody. i'm kelly evans. dow actually move adlile bit lower on the bell there. it was 29 points. kind of hugling the flat line earlier. the s&p gave up half a point, closed at 2090. now, the nasdaq did add six to close at 4900. dollar tree had an interesting move higher. meanwhile the oracle or google verdict is in. we're going to get the results of that coming in.
4:01 pm
we're watching earnings this afternoon. there's courtney reagan. she'll have results from trault beauty and susan li. the manor man redoes will be with us. he'll tell us who was killed in the season finale. yeah. stay tuned for all of that. first though joining today's panel we have ynbc senior commentator mike santoli as long with susan ox of the new american foundation. good morning, guys. steve grasso will join us in just a bit as well, mike. consolidation is the name of the game today. >> yeah, really. the market taking a breather. it seemed like the parts of the narth were really hot for two days came off a fair amount.
4:02 pm
so you did see the more cyclical stuff did take a rest. really just waiting honestly. and what are we waiting for? maybe janet yellen is going to say something. it's not determined if she will, but i think it's what we're geared up for. >> do you agree, susan? >> yeah. i think it weighs a lot. i do think some of the air starting to come out of the expectation that will it come out in june and even july. it is the dow's 120th birthday or anniversary, whatever you want to call it, john press beau seventhnt a bun factoids. this one i love. it's relevant. it plunged 30% by august of that year because there was concern about the upcoming election with williams jenning bryant and
4:03 pm
concern about the direction of the country. there's been a debate about whether that's going happen to kind of feed into our stockmarkets here. what do you guys think? >> i don't know if it's going to be good for 30% on the dow. but i think it's going come more into view in terms of vichinves' reactions. i don't think it's taking a policy by policy approach and deciding what the implications are going to be. it's going to be what does it say about the mood of the country and the fact that this economic discon intelligent is going to be right at the surface always summer and the fact that we could have such an unpredictable election setup. also i keep saying this. foreign investors own a percentage of the market. they're not going to be happy if they get through it. >> steven grasso on the floor. what are your thoughts? >> i think we're battling. everyone wants a reason to hate the market rally and everything
4:04 pm
feels topee. everything feels like it's rolling over. it feels topee to everyone. you don't want to be the guy who gets his picture taken by the highs or around the highs. you need new highs to put money to work in this market. >> he's kind of a lone voice out there saying, hey, this thing could actually pop higher. we don't hear a lot of people making those calls. >> this could only pop higher. a couple of days ago it dropped lower. we were just down 2025 at the s&p cash a handful of days ago. 3.5% roaration basically from the down to the upper level right now. you need to be trading higher than 2134. in the s&p caps. 2111 was the recent high and we keep making a series of lower highs. so until you take out that old high, i don't think you can put new money to work right now. i'd rather miss it for a couple percent. >> i would say -- i'll check the numbers on this -- i think the
4:05 pm
dow is headed for a fourth consecutive positive. the rest are going for a third. even though it doesn't feel a great, everything you're saying is true, yet, we've actually been piling up some consistent gains. >> the way to look at it is may has been positive for a number of years now. basically people who have tried to jump the gun have had their nose swatted a few times here, but that being said, i look at where we are right now. we were there april 20th. are things better or worse on a relevant basis. mostly they're the same. but the things that are different are slightly better. it looks like the jury has now found in favor of google. this was a lawsuit brought to the courts by oracle. basically they were accusing google of taking its
4:06 pm
intellectual property without permission. they claim that google's android operating system basically violated the copy rights on part of java and google units say it should be able to use java without having to pay for a use provision. it looks like jury has found in favor of google. back to you. >> thank you, susan. i think, guys, and pleesz jump in here, it would have been more resonant if they had had a lot of ramifications across the tech day. so google comes out a victor here. >> yeah. i this i they have dodged a bullet for google. and also the implications for broader tax reform. >> what about oracle? they acquired sun obviously a couple of years ago and they mentioned a lot of people have moved toward using these open access things anyway but where does this leave oracle now? >> my courthouse would be s&p.
4:07 pm
full disclosure, bill mcdermott is a friend. always a little suspect when you move the cloud because i don't know what the margins are truly going to look like and i dmoejt what the legacy business looks like or the contract. it's always a going forward basis that you look at these companies. it's performed pretty well. and the newcomers, you need a lot of cash to play this game so i think it gets to be a tail wind for s&p for everything i discussed about move into that app space more so than what they used to be in. >> the oracle shares down 1%. gaggle shares moving up a little bit higher. that's not to say this changes anything. >> i don't think anyone is viewing this for oracle. it was not going to be compromised. >> let's check on shares of ult ultra. their earnings just crossed the wire. it's been one of the best
4:08 pm
performs, kind of the makeup trend everyone is rushing to get on board with if they're not already. courtney reagan has those reports. >> that's right, kelly. ultra turns its shares 1.45. it's beating extendations of 1.25. listen to this. comparable sales up 15%. now, the second quarter guidance that's giving it is a little bit below consensus but it's raising its outlook it had previously given for a full year for earnings and sales going forward. so a pretty sharp jump on ultra shares as you can see more than 8% of-on-the back of a very strong quarter and the ceo says it has an offering people like. a unique store for matt and a healthy consumer beauty trend. kelly. >> looking to see if there was a reason why the guidance might
4:09 pm
have come down but it looks like they're raising the 2016 guid t guidan guidance. this is a spot that's been clicking inside the retail. i guess everyone on this desk is doing their fair share. >> we were saying that the joke is this is part of the economy, right? but everyone wants to get involved. people are buying more quantity. you know, it's not i have the standard stuff i wear every day, i have plenty of new things to wear, to try out. >> honestly, i don't understand. the amount of different kinds of
4:10 pm
moisturizer that comes to my house, i don't know what it does. this shows the danger -- you know, you talk about the danger of it in retail, these kinds of concepts that are just out of danger, this is the danger of betting against one that's coming. it was up to new all-time highs. >> i will tell you even though i love the story and i love how it's performed, think i you have to take profits and stocks that was up so drastically and was up this much after hours and after putting out a print like that. i don't care how rosy the story is, you've got to take some profits. >> be sure to stick around and catch barrasso coming up with the "fast money" crew at 5:00. the crude over at seven highs. a tom airline analyst weighs in the next hour.

kelly, this might be a case for palo alto. they put in some pretty strong earnings for the quarter. it looks like they're in line with estimates that reported 42 cents a piece. revenues beat the estimates compared to 340 mullion which the street was looking for. meantime it's the guidance going forward. it looks like it's going to be a week of fourth quarter revenue gietd answer. $346 million to a range of 390
4:15 pm
million. yeah, that's weaker than what the street was looking for. eps guidance, now they're warning the market they're going to make it 48 cents to 50 cent as piece. analysts were looking for a lofty 50 cents a piece. strong numbers from palo alto since their billings growth was up 61% a year, year on year. that's how you track the cyber security company. meantime let's also talk about the retailer gamestop. when it comes to earnings, they beat estimates, 66 cents a piece. they were looking for 62 cents. so in the three months they earned $1.97 billion but when it comes to comp sales, they're guiding lower, down possibly, 4% to 7% in the next three months. back to you, kelly. >> thank you. a couple of companies moving sharply lower. >> i was talking about the retail. gamestop, very cheap stock right now. seven times expected earnings. and it seems like it's been this
4:16 pm
battle ground forever. basically a dane officer. others saying they can keep it going. not good to have lower guidance. >> palo alto. apple may be in the market for a media company. the "financial times" revealing he raised the idea of the tech giant buying time warner at the end of the last year. the f.t. said they didn't get past preliminary stages. buying it could be a good move for apple. we have matt gary a han who broke the story. thanks for coming to post nine. >> thank you. >> eddy cue raised the idea. does it soind light it was something they were thinking of or it was a brain strategy? >> they were meeting about other things. they were talk about getting apple tv on the tv box.
4:17 pm
it became serious enough and filtered through to the sources we spoke to. they never followed up. it was raised by eddy. >> dwlou think it got to that level? >> it was never discussed with tim contact. since then apple's sort of doubled down on its original content echlt's been talking to people in hollywood, making its more programming, adopting a series in the works, a series about the app development. not many are going to watch that. but the netflix style, amazon style that will bring in viewers. >> net liks was flix was up 2.6. a lot of the media companies are closely controlled. >> without a doubt. time warner is one of the big
4:18 pm
media companies that does not have a control block. it's basically very shareholder-minded. now, on the other hand, bu was is a time warner lifer. he went through the time warner experience. this would be compared. i wonder if urt goes to the connection of the struggle with the tv piece. >> the aol disaster was a disaster and there was no broad band streaming technology. it was a marriage of distribution and content. you could. watch video back in those days, and you can now. the real issue for apple is two-thirds of its business comes from the i phone. they need to find other sources of growth and services are its second largest business. you know, if you get a subscription of video service within that you can sell other
4:19 pm
services, icloud, apps, all of that. you can see how it might be working. >> we all talk about netflix and amazon as great success stories of developing their own content. let's talk about yahoo!. it's hard to develop your own skill set. how do we think about it. is this that apple has $200 billion they don't what to do with or do they want to get into that business of creating their own? >> they want to create their own. it has some of the best content around. hbo is the unparalleled leader in premium. ""game of thrones" kws is the most watched tv show around. can you imagine what they would do if they untethered hbo from all its tv. >> and basketball. i think they'd get a lot of that. a lot of that live sports content that's so valuable. >> isn't bob iger on the board

welcome back. donald trump has hit the magic number, securing the republican nominee earlier today. trump is campaigning in the bakken area of north dakota today. experiencing a sudden economic boom. joining us now for more on the trump candidacy in 2016 is barney frank former
4:24 pm
massachusetts representative along with larry kudlow, a cnbc contributor. welcome back, gentlemen. we're talking about donald trump basically securing the nomination today. what did you think? was there anything different? unexpected i guess is a better word ins he comments about energy policy today? >> i don't know the whole thing, kelly. i'm sorry. i watched a little bit on tv. then it was taken off tv. the public speech has not been put out or maybe it has in the last ten minutes on the web. but i can just tell you he's going to want all of the above. he's going to want to continue fracking. he's going to want to build pipelines, have the american energy independence or north american energy independence. he's going to probably criticize mrs. clinton who's opposed to fracking. he's got his friend harold hamm who's my friend t guy who
4:25 pm
invented fracking up in north dakota by his side. so it's going to be a very positive pro-energy speech and have some regulatory rollbacks. look for the epa rollbacks too. we spoke with a trump delegate earlier. he expected this con stroengs be very different. it sounded like they almost wanted to -- i don't want to say a coronation, but he made some comments about having talked to the trump campaign, especially you know how fraktous, this whole nomination cycle has been an how much they might be against the idea of trump becoming the nominee. do you think they could pull that off? >> no. i don't. i think that's just silliness. trump's -- latest polls have trump 85% republican support going up into the 90s. what i'm getting excited about, i'm really excited about the trump/bernie sanders debate. this is going to be so huge. no. let me say huge. trump and sanders give the proceeds to charity and probably 40 million people will watch it, break every rating record.
4:26 pm
>> what do you think, mr. frank? >> i'm troubled now that mr. trump has taken over. i'm glad he made a positive speech. but i have to say in the past few days i have become deeply troubled by what i think is the most despicable performance by a public figure and i mean that quite literally. for donald trump to raise again the issue of vince faulkner again is an outrage. vince foster committed suicide tragically. it was investigated by the republicans in congress. it was investigated by kenneth starr, by law enforcement. kenneth starr concluded it was a suicide. there was nothing, quote, fishy about it. for donald trump to raise the issue and suggest -- and suggest that it was murder and illicit behavior, to exhume literally this political scandal is outrageous. by the werek it goes to the other so-called accusations -- not so-called. the accusations.
4:27 pm
never forget. kenneth starr said with regard to every accusation including white water, the fbi file, there was no negative evidence. they spent their years in power trying to prove that and they proved nothing. kenneth starr investigating, spending millions of dollars. he skplitsly absolved hillary clinton of any of that, so this repetition of charges that have already been disproven including this tragic suicide for a political purpose is an outrage. >> let me ask you on the issue of hillary clinton. there was a tough op-ed in the "washington post" about her e-mails and the way in which they say she totally appears to have ignored and doctored protocols with this report. they say they hope the fbi finishes its investigation soon so this information will all be before the voters. has this taken a more troubling
4:28 pm
turn based on what we thought we knew before? >> somewhat but she paid a political price for the e-mail. she made as by mistake in doing. yes, it had been done before. i do think that was the worst examp example. the thing i want to say is people say it's part of pattern. no, it's not part of pattern. i doubt very much that there are people who had previously said, i don't mind and it's also to be note thad no harm came to the u.s. because of it. it was -- she didn't do it -- she should not have done it, but, no, i don't think it changes it. i don't think there are people saying, oh, no. by the way, as to the fbi, i don't believe the fbi is going to find any criminal. but here's the history and i want go back to what i said. the fbi found that vince foster had committed suicide. that doesn't stop donald trump. >> right, right. what about the debate, barney -- is bernie sanders doing the right thing?
4:29 pm
real quick because we're almost out of time. >> i agree with barney that police clinton made mistakes with the e-mail. i want to say at the news conference donald trump agreed with barney trump. he said he would not talk about the vince foster case. so let us hope all of that stuff is aside and let us hope that the candidates debate how to grow the american economy. >> i agree. >> barney, we're got go but do you think donald trump should debate bernie sanders? >> sure. i think anybody who wants to debate anybody should debate anybody. >> if larry and i can debate every week, why can't they? >> you're right. and we appreciate that you do that. barney frank, larry kudlow. thank you, guys. oracle is responding to the lawsuit. let's get to deirdre bosa with the details. >> reporter: we're outside of the courthouse. we're getting comments from
4:30 pm
both. we have statement from oracle. this is from oracle's general counsel dorian daily. we strongly believe google developed android by illegally helping. oracle brought this lute. we believe there are numerous grounding for appeal and we plan to bring this case back to the federal circuit on appeal. that gives you an indication of how oracle is feeling. our producer says oracle is smiling shaking handing while the attorneys are looking at their mobile phones. we also have a statement from google i'm going to read from you and here it is. google says -- their spokesperson says today's verdict says it represents a win for the android ecosystem, for the java programming community, and for software verps who rely on open and free throwing languages to build innovative comments. there you go.
4:31 pm
of course, the repercussions for this trial as google alluded to in the statement goes beyond the two tech titans. the rhetoric has become increasingly heated over the last six year. now google is off the hook for that $9 billion payday. there's a lot of money at stake here and this has a lot of ramifications for the entire tech industry, particularly the verps and startup companies that operate and work with open source coding. but, guys, remember, there's like to be an appeal we continue to monitor the comment that koj out and what p has next. this is a very big decision not just for these two companies but the tech industry at large. >> thank you, deirdra. she mentioned a long road but it's a longer one yet. >> it really is. i guess it's no surprise they're going to keep this up and keep fight it. but it seems really interesting because it's also a debate over these very principles exactly
4:32 pm
what e what's fair and how you should treat this. all of these things do have implications on how programmers are going have to behave in the future. >> we're going get an update with courtney rag ray began. >> a super bug doctors have been dreading has shown up for the first time. the germ was found in a pennsylvania woman with aurenary tract infection. meg tirrell will have more in the next half hour. the mother of the so-called affluenza teen has been charged. she helped her son ethan flee to mexico while on probation. couch was also indicted for money laundering. about 2,500 power plant workers and union workers took to the straetss of dunkirk, france. those give them more power to fire workers.
4:33 pm
and after four hours of fierce competition, there are ten spellers left in the 2016 competition. the finalists, some as young as 11-year-olds old are hoping to win cash and prize. that's your cnbc update. >> i do love watching that. >> know. it's fun, isn't it? >> yes. >> thanks. student loan debt currently exceed $1/.2 trillion. up next sheila bair is going to tell us her solution to help lower that burden. and "the walking dead" norman reedus likes to do sightseeing. he's going to join us right here at the new york stock exchange coming up. race car made history when it sold for a record price of just under $30 million. and now, another mercedes-benz makes history selling at just over $30,000. ♪ and to think this one actually has a surround-sound stereo.

brought lawsuits alleging poor underwriting. the new program is a partnership with fannie mae. joining us now is sheila bair, former chair of the fdic. welcome and thank you for joining us here on set. we have to talk about some of the things happening at your college in just a moment, but because this just happened, the 3% down payment mortgage s that fundamentally a good idea? >> it's a little bit deja vu all over again. the good news is these are fixed payment mortgages where you don't have the payment shocks. so the barrorrower is less at r. nonetheless there are about 7 million borrowers who are under water and that have been able to refinance to get the lower rates. so you have that really, really low down payment even from a borrower's perspective. you're exposing yourself to a rink if home prices are taking a dip. wells fargo isn't taking much risk. so family may's got it.
4:38 pm
they're underwriting but they're passing it along. there again we saw during the crisis that when you separate the decision to -- the decision to make the loan from who's actually holding the risk of the loan, you can run into problems too. so i'm not completely comfortable with it. but it is what it is. i think this is a little bit in your face with fha. wells fargo, all the others. they got very, very aggressive in putting back loans that were defaulting as a result of the crisis. and so, you know, now they're pulling away from fha and partnering with fannie. >> it's been an uneven recovery for insure i wonder if we're in a better position now because as we first get an announcement of this new product, we're all talk about it, looking eight it from a risk conscious perspective and we're not saying, hey, look at that. go out and try one of these. >> that's true. >> maybe we shouldn't be in this business. should we be moving out of this business? >> well, i have always thought we have far too much government

support for mortgages and especially the big economy and young people need to be muslim more mobile do. we want to keep pushing these subsidies. is it everybody's best interest to get a home. you can be locked in. i think that's the fundamental policy question but congress needs to answer it and so far congress has jts stepped up with an answer. >> speaking of subsidies, student debt. huge problem. it gets a ton of attention as we're looking at why people are buying homes these days. >> exactly, exactly. >> you guys have come up with some pretty innovative things here. tell us what dam the debt is and i wonder how the students paying the full fray feel about it. >> dam the debt is back end scholarship. we funded it with 100% philanthropy. we raised over $400 million. every penny a donor gives we'll pay down the principal on the
4:40 pm
student's get rally subsidized debt. it's a nice reward. we were able to pay down $300,000. we helped get them closer to financial freedom as they graduate. and, you know, we have -- and everybody's been pleased with this program. i think because it's federalry subcy dieds, those are typically the higher financial need students and there are others who realize they have to borrow and it's a burden when they graduate. we haven't had anybody begrudging the people who have. >> people aren't there tearing up their diplomas saying you bailed out that guy and what about me? >> no, no. we've frozen tuition, so that helped everybody. and we're really trying to hold the line on costs and we'll be trying to hold the line going forward. so we're doing things to help everybody. but forgive the debt, this is one portion. >> wherever that money is coming from, i hope it keeps flowing. >> me too. >> thank you so much for joining us. sheila bair from washington

4:53 pm
you willing to fight for? are you willing to past up on? that's what the show is. it's a depiction of people working together to get through this and their true colors come out. some people rise to the occasion and some people fail miserably. >> this is based on a comic book series. you are part of the first season and you were such a fan favorite, not only are you part of every season but still the fan favorite it seems like. >> you know, people relate to that character quite a bit and i mean, i'm a fan of of all of us on that show to be honest. i remember steven in the beginning being so nervous and, you know, now that guy is the leading man status. same with rick. everyone on that show, i've watched them grow as people, as loved ones, as professionals.
4:54 pm
you know, i was with steven when he proposed to his fiancee. i keep sending naked photos of andy and i to his wife. we're pretty tight. it's a fun gig and it's -- the beauty of that show, too, is how realistic it is in that vir environment. it's real life. you have time with the people you love and it can go like that and you hang on to those moments. >> seems like you'll have no problems but we like to ask people when they come on the show, what's your biggest money mistake you've made? >> probably those little rumba vacuums.
