1:00 pm
little more than i'd like to see. you've got to buy it here. >> all right josh brown. >> i'm going to stay with apple. i accept the possibility that it could drift lower, as we get into some more news about the 8. i don't think that's the major story here, and i like it. >> worst day in a month for that stock. you don't see apple down more than 2% all that often "power lunch" right now. >> i'm melissa lee here's what's on the menu. remembering the crash. we'll talk to three wall street veterans about the day that shocked the financial world, including the man dubbed the most photographed trader on the street. learning to catch a fish no, not the animal, but a phishing scam. scamming people out of thousands when they buy a house. and trump meets yellen the president sitting down this afternoon. which is the best for your money? we'll debate that. "power lunch" starts right now
1:01 pm
welcome to "power lunch," everybody, and it is a far, far, far cry from where we were 30 years ago on this day. the dow is pulling back today after smashing through 23,000 with a big gain yesterday. but remember 20 years ago, down 23%. today down about 23 points, something like that. apple and goldman sachs leading the dow a little bit lower more on those stocks coming up adobe shares today soaring after reporting strong earnings. better than expected guidance. analysts also liking -- liking the company's artificial intelligence platform. >> thank you as tiler said, the markets lower across the board but not close to what we saw 30 years ago today when the dow jones industrial average fell. a look back on black monday. and i guess, bob, to put it in context, a 508-point drop, which today seems like not much.
1:02 pm
the equivalent drop today would be 5,200 points. simply staggering. >> that's right. the dow dropped 508 points, brian, 22.6%, the biggest one-day decline in the history of the stock market. on a perspective basis, a similar drop today would drop the market about 5,000 points, as much as the dow has gained in the last 18 months, one of the great market rallies of all-time so president reagan appointed a commission to look into this the brady commission to investigate the causes of the crash. now, while there are several fundamental causes, including a big stock market run, some currency issues and the use of portfolio insurance, the commission focused on the inability of the trading systems to handle the huge order flow. so many sell orders came through the system that it couldn't handle it. orders became delayed, some people didn't answer their phones any moref and the lack of information created more selling and more panic. so two things came out of the crash. first, system-wide circuit breakers were instituted in 1989, and later expanded to
1:03 pm
single stock circuit breakers. and more importantly, the crisis accelerated the move toward electronic trading the brady commission catalyzed a very deep review of the markets that ultimately pushed that market toward more electronic trading. so exchanges expanded their capacity to handle more schovole and electronic trading cut down the time i would point out the only time the system wide circuit breakers came into effect was one time in 1997, and that was during the agian flu crisis we're coming up on the 20th anniversary of that. >> i remember that one thank you. next, we're there for all of the action james paulton, and floor trader peter tuchman at quattro securities peter, i will start it off with you. what was it like that day? >> you know what, i was a clerk, actually, for cowen and company right under the podium and we had these little dot machines that used to spit out paper orders and i was doing
1:04 pm
retail business. we were getting nothing over the phone. the phones were ringing, the institutional lines were ringing rather quickly and then might machine just started to spit out orders 100 shares, 1,000 shares, 5 and 50,000 share lots. we would pool the orders, rip them, and we would have these $2 brokers who would come around and we would hand them stacks of orders and you could just see them run into the stocks, and the specialists, market-makers, would just say buyers to the left, sellers to the right and they would just put on big prints of stock down a dollar, two, three, $4 at a time we were trading digital equipment at the time, and i actually have a picture of the machine from that day and it shows that the stock was down $47 >> wow. >> i think at one point. almost 35% but they were basically putting on blocks of stock down 4 or $5 at a clip. it was quite unbelievable. >> did the presence of humans on the floor, and there were a lot more humans on the floor than there are today. did the presence of humans on the floor help the situation
1:05 pm
and i'm taking it forward to today. would the lack of humans on the floor make an analogous situation even more seemingly uncontrollable >> i think absolutely it did there was -- you know, there was definitely panic you discussed it in the intro that basically people weren't answering phones and there was panic and that caused a lot of orders coming through and that the market couldn't handle basically, there were 10,000 people on the floor at that time and the fact that there were humans involved and they were able to slow things down, basically, and bring the buyers and sellers together -- even though the stocks were trading down significantly, it was fairly orderly you know, there was some panic and there was anxiety, and people were screaming and yelling. the paper was building up. as you can see in the pictures that you're showing. but definitely, the humans on the floor at the time, as they do today, when we have, you -- we have seen some big selloffs
1:06 pm
and the market has kept steady, no matter what. >> you know, on milestones like today, jim, everybody wants to know if it could happen again. i don't know if it -- if all the ingredients would be in place for this exact thing to happen again. but it seems like there could be another set of circumstances that could precipitate some sort of a big selloff, even if it's a technological glitch like we saw with the flash crash >> you know -- >> i think it's possible >> jim wilson. >> oh, i'm sorry i think it's possible. not very likely, melissa but, you know, one of the things is we -- what has come a long way, in some sense, there's a lot more quantitative program trading done today than there ever was back then i know the portfolio insurance that is often considered one of the causes, but today we've got a lot of moneys run quantitatively, and a lot of those are fairly similar in terms of the indicators they use. and you do -- you get a sense that if you get the market down enough one day, they're all going to have the same
1:07 pm
recommendation at the same time, bringing a lot of flow to get out of the market. so i think it's possible you know, i think we're going to slow it down, because of the circuit breakers and things of that nature. but i certainly think we'll probably see some more, you know, eye-catching days. maybe not quite the magnitude of what we had in 1987. >> bingo ron, i think jim nailed it, as usual, which is this there are $3 trillion in etf and, quote, passive index funds right now. margin debt is higher than it was pre2007. i understand there are circuit breakers but do you see anything structurally in this market which makes you concerned? >> i think, you know, every time we have product innovation, we have to worry to some extent about market structure jim was just referencing what we called portfolio insurance or delta hedging, where if the s&p fell a certain amount, you would sell futures in order to protect your losses. and if it went down more, you would sell more futures. so selling begot selling, along
1:08 pm
with index arbitrage or what we used to call program trading and there were some fundamental factors behind the selloff, as well it was a perfect storm yeah, there are any number of things where you could have -- again, nobody can predict a 23% drop in a single day, still the largest percentage decline we'll have more of these if you go back to the history, the very beginning of the new york stock exchange was born of a panic and a crisis and then it formalized the operations of the exchange back in 1792. these are periodic events. we have seen it certainly in recent years >> everything is the whole market now, ron. >> yeah, exactly. >> jim's point is -- >> everybody owes the same thing. >> what if the computers and -- >> the market -- >> no, but if you buy the spy, or the qqq or these big market -- >> in the rise of the etfs have contributed more to people owning the same things. >> you're not selling ibm. you're serving everything, flushing everything at the same time. >> yes, absolutely but listen, on october 19th, 1987, we flushed everything at the same time, as was heard
1:09 pm
earlier. peter, ibm was indicated to open, i believe it was about $40 lower the morning of the 19th. cbs, $40 lower in fact, there's a video of me interviewing a cboe market maker in cbs options these guys were absolutely shell shocked. and these big 4 or $5 chunks opening down 40 points, two hours late it was a unique experience not that we can't see something else like it and this time, it might be etfs, might be some other vehicle that precipitates and exacerbates the selling. >> peter, what is the thing that concerns you most in terms of the potential catalyst for the next crash >> you know what, look, we've had a lot of opportunities over the last year. anxiety around the world, whether it's korea, whether it's the administration in washington or any number of -- or the hurricanes, the disasters that could make this market anxious i think that there is a lot of money in the sidelines, people have been waiting for this
1:10 pm
market to break for the last nine months. and given all that potential anxiety, this market has hit record highs so i'm not fearful of it at this point. you know, we saw brexit, we saw the market after trump's election that could have been -- that was protected to be down 1,000. it was down overnight 900. we ended up opening up so i'm confident that the market has strong foundation, and just feels like it's going to edge higher >> real quick, two of the biggest preciptants that led to the crash, a rapid rise in interest rates and a crash in the value of the dollar. those are things you need to keep an eye on. >> all right peter, the most photographed trader on the floor, peter tuchman, thanks a lot. thanks as well to jim paulsen and ron en sanaa. on deck, the story everybody today is talking about how a former ceo used a spare jet -- that's right, not one, but two -- as a backup ahead. plus, president trump set to meet with janet yellen could she end up staying on for another term and if not her, then who

1:13 pm
president trump interviewing janet yellen this afternoon about staying on as fed chair after her term ends in february. in addition to chair yellen, trump has interviewed kevin wore shall, jay powell. and here to debate and break down who might be best for your money, the markets and who may be in the lead for this position, let's bring in steve
1:14 pm
liesman, michelle girard, u.s. economist. steve. >> i think it's worth while to talk about, before we start making picks around here, take a look at the wall real quick. on either end, you've got yellen and powell and they're the status quo candidates and then you get in the middle gary cohn is the most unknown. whereas kevin warsh criticized the federal reserve. and he's much more rules-based whereas yellen and powell would be more the status quo candidate. my pick? i don't have one i've got to cover these guys it would be sort of stupid for me to pick maybe we should ask michelle girard michelle >> you know, steve, i still think kevin warsh is the front-runner he brings a lot of things to the table that trump probably likes. first of all, i think he is someone that the president probably feels very comfortable
1:15 pm
with there is sort of a family connection there he's got the -- he's got fed experience, but, of course, he's got business experience, as well and i think, you know, while he's expressed views about monetary policy that are more hawkish than the current fed chair, i honestly think warsh sees the world as his economic advisers do, in the sense there are supply, free market individuals. i think there is a lot ideacally that aligns well >> but, michelle, he's a guy that criticized low rates and argued that it's led to lack of capital investment you would think the logical conclusion from that would be higher rates. >> here's the thing.
1:16 pm
i don't think it's so much, as i keep saying to people -- economic fundamentals would suggest. and that ultimately, that creates risk for the markets or creates potentially imbalances in sectors that could come back with consequences. and so i have to say, i think even candidates like jay powell may have very much those sort of same concerns, and that's why i think whoever comes in, i think is going to move to a more formulaic approach, trying to move to a more disciplined approach to policy. >> let's bring in sessan gar manny. we've got your signal up who is your thought here among the i call them the big six there. big five candidates that the president has apparently
1:17 pm
interviewed? >> yeah, hi. i -- we think the front runners are -- first of all, thank you for having me on good to be on with michelle, as well good friend of mine of many years. we think front runners are actually powell and john taylor. our understanding is that the president likes all the candidates he has said that publicly. we think he actually does like janet yellen, who we would be delighted if she got reappointed. but after the president met with john taylor, what we heard, what the word was, was that president trump really, really liked -- two reallies really, really liked john taylor so i'll take the two reallies over the one really. and i think jay powell, you know, the white house has been circling around him for some time he's an extremely strong candidate, and he's more of a continuity candidate. >> michelle, you know our viewers. they like to make money.
1:18 pm
they don't like to lose money. so forget about who you want or who you think. who would be, out of that group, or somebody else, the best fed chair for making money >> well, i have to say, i think that you -- a couple of things first of all, the knee jerk market reaction, of course, might need to be faded in the sense of if there is someone like a john taylor that the markets react initially with much consternation because of the fear of higher rates, i think that to some extent, you have to remember, no one is going to come in and radically change on day one or even in the first couple of months, the outlook for policy i really don't think any of these candidates are going to result in a different interest rate outlook over the next probably 6 to 12 months than what the current fed has been signalling so i think that's a very important thing to keep in mind. and i think these new candidates -- new members that are being talked about, whether it's taylor or warsh,
1:19 pm
ultimately, i do think a more disciplined approach to policy will serve investors better, you know, than what we have seen in the longer run, i do worry that these -- the fact that rates have been kept as low as they are does create -- does create financial stability risks. and so that is to me a concern so this new change in approach i think could be positive. >> better results than what we have seen. i'll take that because the results have been dog gone good over the past five years and certainly over the past year. michelle, thank you very much. sassan, thank you. sorry we got to you late steve, as always, good to have you here. >> thank you. here's a question. does a ceo really need to take two planes on a business trip, a spare in case of a problem with the first one? that's what former ceo jeff immelt reportedly did. we have much more onhis or tsty coming up on "power lunch. building a website in under an hour is easy with gocentral...

1:23 pm
to sources familiar, immelt scaled back that long-standing practice to instead hire locally sourced planes, kept on stand-by in certain areas for certain trips. to this, ge saying, quote, two planes were used on limited occasions for business, critical or security purposes but all of this gets to the bigger dynamic at play, at ge right now. cost-cutting new ceo john flannery has made it clear there are no sacred cows, doing away with company cars, thousands of jobs and even that fleet of ge-owned jets. so that's in focus, because shares are down 26% this year. and the street is concerned about the dividend, even though ge does say it's safe. so more is expected at flannery's at big update ahead of that, as i mentioned, tomorrow we have earnings. and meantime, shares are higher. they're up more than 1% today. >> morgan, thank you very much. let's talk more about this big story brad stuart is chairman and ceo of exo jets,
1:24 pm
and robert strang. robert, is there any situation that you have ever encountered in your career where a ceo or corporate officer would need a backup jet >> well, brian, believe it or not, there are places in the world, and in africa and middle east, certain areas in south america, where i do recommend -- [ inaudible it's rare. it really depends on the intelligence and the threat against a ceo at that particular time but -- [ inaudible for 28 years -- >> yeah. >> there are instances -- >> robert, our signal is a little weak. do me a favor, take three steps to your left or right. you'll probably hook in. we'll get your signal back up here >> can you hear me now >> there you go. hey, brad, are you there morgan got into it a little bit here honestly, for our viewers, i'm asking for our friends not used to traveling on g-5s around the world. what does it cost? if i wanted to go from
1:25 pm
teterboro, new jersey, to london, how much would that cost i want to bring my friends, melissa and tyler. >> yeah, so there's a lot of variables that go into it, the type of plane. >> g-5, baby >> we're looking at 8.500 to 9500 per hour for round-trip pricing. >> hold on, brad per hour $9,000 per hour? >> correct and so we're looking at somewhere between 150 to $175,000 for the round-trip. correct. >> have you ever sent planes with people chartered to go to places like africa where there might be a security threat have you been to any locations, in other words, where there would have to be a backup jet waiting in the wings, so to speak? >> absolutely. so we're looking at actually two different questions. and i think a real critical analysis here is to unpack what is time and efficiency and schedule from what is safety and so what a backup airplane is mostly used for is to provide redundancy in the event of a
1:26 pm
mechanical on that aircraft. security issues are also very important among the board of becker and associates, a large security firm. and security protocols don't necessarily require a backup airplane, but they do require various redundancies, protocols, that tend not to interfere. >> let's get to the bottom line. a lot of that rumping of mr. immelt's use of a jet. one he hired to be onsite or nearby in case there was a security problem i am hearing you say, just as i heard our other guest say in his broken up signal, that this does not really shock you to hear that on limited occasions, there was a second jet ready to go if something happened with the first one or there was a security threat that needed to be addressed i've got you right >> i'm going to be very clear. i think this is a board and a ceo discussion about his or her
1:27 pm
schedule and if there are events, whether they're a merger, acquisition, a speech, a client meeting, that requires no risk atall, then the prudent thing to do would be to have backup travel. and if you happen to be in a location where commercial travel either -- either isn't available or is not deemed to be safe, you know, per the guidelines of the board, then obviously the right thing to do would be to have backup options >> you know, robert -- sorry, go ahead. you know, robert, i was thinking, listen, here's the thing. it's -- i understand what brad is saying about security i get that now, you could make the argument, could you not, that most ceos are unrecognizable to the general public is it that big of a risk or a hardship i know what the boards say, you've got to go private if, god forbid, the g-5 has got a flat tire, i'm going to have to hop on a united in first place. is that the -- is that that big of a security risk, for pete's sakes? >> well, brian, it depends on the country. there are certain areas that are
1:28 pm
crucial. they know that the ceo is going to be entering that country. and it's imperative to have that kind of security i mean, and you're right are there backup plans that are secondary? can you have other aircraft available? all those things are possible. you don't always need a follow plane. but there are certain circumstances in certain parts of the world where it would be recommended. but it's rare. >> and in those instances, would a ceo of a dow company even be going to an area that risky? >> good point. intelligence first, right? so many times, we talk the ceo out of going to those countries, and they don't even -- when you need a second plane, you have to think twice about the trip . >> but, at the same time, there might be occasions where a ceo needed to go to pakistan or to nigeria or to any number of countries in central or latin america, where there would be -- where there could be security threats, right i mean, it's not all that
1:29 pm
unheard of that you would go to risky areas. >> that's true and in those countries, you know, we have partners that have, you know, private airplanes and private airports, almost, that can actually transport in an emergency. there's always a backup plan but remember, you weigh the intelligence, you make those decisions depending on the country, what's happening in the country at that time and then you follow through. but it's rare that any ceo would have two airplanes on any given trip >> but not unheard of. rare but not unheard of? >> rare but not unheard of we have done it. >> okay. >> brad and robert, guys, a really good discussion and a story definitely getting a lot of attention we appreciate both of your insights today i'm going to the airport after the show >> get your jet -- >> driving my jeep wrangler. >> your backup car >> we'll have a jeep follow you. >> just in case. thank you. all right. and definitely won't want to miss this interview. new ge ceo john flannery on

i'm morgan brennan here is your cnbc news update for this hour. russian president, vladimir putin, out with a message for the u.s. if america quits the intermediate range nuclear forces treaty. putin says moscow is ready to develop both nuclear and nonnuclear weapons systems in response to other countries doing the same secretary of state rex tillerson will embark on a week-long trip beginning tomorrow, visiting saudi arabia, qatar, pakistan, india and switzerland. in the mid east, tillerson will discuss the conflict with yemen,
1:34 pm
iran and the ongoing dispute with qatar the british film institute removed its highest honor from harvey weinstein he has been accused of sexual harassment by dozens of women. weinstein was awarded the fellowship in 2002 for his contribution to british cinema. and jcpenney betting on smart watches this holiday season the retailer announcing it will have brands like samsung and lg beginning october 30th before halloween holidays start earlier and earlier. that's the cnbc news update. >> earlier and earlier morgan, thank you. three senators announcing a new plan to regulate online advertising. kayla tausche now joining us with the details at kayla. >> what the honest ads act would do is expand existing legislation around political ad spending to include social media companies that have been excluded traditionally, this just touched traditional broadcast and newspaper spending but obviously, the world of
1:35 pm
media has changed. and that's exactly what senators klobuchar and warner said today when they announced this bill. it also has the backing of senator john mccain, the lone republican sponsor of this bill. senate aides say there is outreach to get more but that it is a positive sign they have members from the intelligence committee. the elections committeeand the armed services committee that have thrown their weight behind this bill. senator amy klobuchar of minnesota said that they want to see this as a start to potentially put more legislation on the table, and that they want to put this act in any legislative vehicle that could move to try and thwart any potential influence in the elections that are still to come senator mark warner was asked about the influence of facebook specifically, and his committee's ongoing investigation of that. here's what he said. . >> they used what was relatively cheap, and while we made note of the fact that, for example, in the facebook area, it's 100 to
1:36 pm
$150,000, i still believe that may be the tip of the iceberg. again, remember, these were the ads that were paid for in rubles, and we've not been able to sort through whether, you know, some of these same accounts may have been smart enough to actually use dollars, euros or pounds. >> they will say they will not seek to regulate any spending on these platforms in currencies other than the u.s. dollar, which is certainly an interesting development, given how international in scope all of these platforms have become the senator said that they are looking to get more information from these companies, that they are not in support of the legislation just yet, but that there is a process going on to actually figure out how this could move forward and how they could get their cooperation. senator warner saying they'll get a lot of answers on november 1st when executives from these companies testify on the hill. guys, back to you. >> kayla, thank you very much. for more on what this might mean for the companies involved, how likely it is to pass and how it would be implemented, let's bring in sarah fisher, media and
1:37 pm
advertising reporter with actiony owes, and director of the social media program at the university of florida. sarah, do you think there is any chance this bill will pass >> it's tough to say right now i mean, it's definitely a game-changer that senator mccain threw his support behind, because as you had mentioned prior to his support, there was no support from republicans. disclosure as for many years been something that republicans haven't wanted to bring up in fact, this is one of the reasons that we see this being pursued in congress. the federal election commission, which is a six-person commission, has three republicans on it who have been staunchly opposed to doing any sort of disclosure updates and so we'll see what happens. but it could face some backlash from other republicans when it comes to a vote. >> let's say it did pass, sara let's say they put it up for a vote i'm just a bill. and it makes it all the way through and gets hugged. who would implement it what federal agency would do this job the fcc? the ftc? the doj? >> unclear right now
1:38 pm
so you just named three agencies that have a part in regulating things online. but we don't have any sort of federal agency that manages internet, advertising or internet regulation at large the ftc can only regulate something if it leads to false commercialization. so something that is like a diet pill or some sort of scam. the fcc has jurisdiction to regulate broadcast, radio and newspapers but under their jurisdiction, they can't do anything with the internet and, of course, we know the doj is responsible for antitrust so it's unclear as of now, if this bill were to pass, who would even be enforcing it. >> so who enforces the regulations that govern political advertising now to the extent that it's governed at all, sara? >> the fcc is responsible for that sort of regulation. when it comes to online, there is no governing body that's responsible for regulating it. that's why it's been left to the companies themselves and what we're find something that they have no real incentive
1:39 pm
to be monitoring this, which is why we had foreign governments spending money on their platforms. >> andrew, in terms of the lobbying efforts on the part of silicon valley, i imagine they're in full force now. what's their argument here i would imagine this would be a slippery slope once you start saying there should be some sort of rules on a facebook or a larger platform, that will expand all the way down the food chain online >> and that's i think the big thing they're going to be looking at is the fact that they know kind of like with other industries, once any regulation happens, more regulation is going to happen. and the people in silicon valley and some of the most richest people in the world at this point know that they've made their money based on the fact that they have been in this sort of unregulated wild west and any regulation is going to just create a level of bureaucracy that's going to eat into their profits so they're going to be pretty heavy into trying to convince congress to let them continue to kind of essentially regulate themselves >> i mean, you know, when banks
1:40 pm
face increased regulation after the financial crisis, andrew, they hired scores of people. they have enormous compliance departments now totaling hundreds of thousands of people, in some cases. what do you see here i would think it would make a lot of entrepreneurs really think twice if they were going into or launching a social media company. >> well, i mean, i think they're still understanding there is a lot of money to be made in social media again, if you look at the top ten richest people in the world, zuckerberg is in there and he made it on social media. i don't think people would be too nervous about getting into the area, but i think they'll take a look at it's going to be a lot more difficult with more regulationors any regulations in place, and that this is going to maybe make them a little bit more hesitant. but considering the money that's there, i think they'll still have plenty of people who are going to hop in. >> sara, andrew, i have a feeling that this discussion is not over but it is over right now, today. but it will continue in days and weeks and months ahead, i'm sure thank you both very much >> thank you. >> thank you well, is the controversy
1:41 pm
over nfl anthem hurting tv ratings? we look at football viewership compared to baseball and basketball julia, what do the numbers say >> well, tyler, the nfl's nightmare ratings continue according to nielsen in the first six weeks of the season, ratings are down 7.5%, down almost 19% from 2015 the nfl points out that the numbers aren't apples to apples. they say the decline from last year is more like 6%, and also there's a huge impact from hurricanes in week one they also note that since the start of the season, every single week an nfl game has been the number one program on tv but the nfl's declines come as basketball and baseball ratings so far this season have been soaring. the ratings of espn's nba season opener double header last night were up 14%, matching espn's second-highest rated opening nba game ever. and the league's opening night on tnt saw ratings nearly double from last year as for the mlb, the first three

1:50 pm

2:03 pm
the market was up 40%, year to date and late august then proceeding to decline, 17.5% up until the weekend before the crash that week before the crash that you mentioned, tyler the dow is down 9.5% traders were busy and they thought that was something that was unprecedented pace of decline. what was going on in the background was treasury were shooting higher. you had the dollar collapsing and volatility level and concerning of over heating economy. it was not the market blind sighted out of the state of calm it was to build up a lot of stresses and important to mention, you are not seeing anything similar right now it is a common environment but for now a lot more steadiness.
2:04 pm
>> mike santoli. thank you. our next guests, trade in the treasury's future complex, lets bring both of them back in and professor seagal, you were teaching them and teaching now, how did that impact the way you teach finance? wel we >> well, i never bought the idea that markets are efficient i was worried about portfolio insurance that people thought they had protection against the market, that was sold to many institutional investors and michael is right, that soaring bond yield from 7% to over 10%, it seems like the market ignored it and everyone thought oh, i am protected and i have protection on that was really a falsehood.
2:05 pm
they did not have protection on. it was based on selling in the future's market and when that selling came through it was a freight train ran everyone down. >> the people that you teach though today were not born then, right? >> yes, i pointed that out i taught today and spent part of today's lecture going back, none of you were born that was the biggest one day drop in history. that was double the next high t highest. there was nothing like it before or since that day. i am sure it is craziness but it seems like years that end i in sevens have a remarkablety to bring in the market. now, we are in 2017 and even to that, it is just crazy
2:06 pm
>> yeah, what's really amazing is that, a huge percentage of crashes occurred in the month of october. you know we even go back to the 1929 crash which was the granddaddy before the one i in '87 that was also in october this was in an october day and many of them do occur in october. hey, we are half done with october. so, we are passing through the dangers zone >> right >> that's also because why october is seemingly the worst month. >> scott, you wrote the book on crashes literally. >> it is called history of the united states in five crashes so what was that catalyst then that -- professor siegal and mike santoli mentioned, and could you see of a catalyst of the next that concerns you
2:07 pm
>> great question. all of the crashes are alike but each one has a catalyst that sponsors it. often it had nothing to do with finance. in 1987 on friday, the iranian military attack using missiles, attack the number oil tankers. when you woke up monday on october 19th, you were certainly worrying about stocks. you were certain that we were finally at war with iran if you were worried of what had happened before. what's the first thing you are going to do? you are going to sell whatever stocks you have left people forgot it was a catalyst in 1987. >> in terms of catalyst of the horizon at this point, scott >> melissa, where do we begin? >> there are almost too many to mention and north korea is at
2:08 pm
the very top of the list >> despite the interest rate d anans and the crash and the dollar, you need the cocktail, correct >> the other thing and professor siegle mentioned this, many people only worry about portfolio insurance, the monday before the crash, journal about the promise and the fear that we all had because of portfolio insurance and certainly there are many things you can point to that maybe the catalyst for the next >> we got to leave it there. thank you so much for your time. the company is moving higher of a new form of cancer therapy

welcome back everybody united airline, what went wrong and why? >> listen to him and how he assesses where united is relative to their competitors. i think the last few years dug itself a hole competitively. for us to dig out of the hole, we have to take a lot of risks regarding to where we grow and
2:14 pm
the type of investments that we have not made for a long time. it is a deep hole that we have to dig out of. we are doing right things for r the long-term. >> any time you have a ceo says they have to dig themselves out of a hole, it had animalysts saying how deep is that hole and how long will it take and how much patience do you have in this company turning things around in the relatively the near future >> what's the essence as a whole? >> their operations have improved and performances is much better than it used to be you compare the profit margins of delta they lag dramatically. they're trying to close the gap but they are a long way of doing that eventually, a lot of institutional investors may look at this and saying, how long can we have patience of united airlines >> autoreliability study is out. there are all kinds of different
2:15 pm
reliability studies. this is consumer reports >> this is based on the response of 640,000 people. essentially, it is the same thing that we haeeard before. these are riddle with bugs these multi speed transmissions that are rolling into new models no surprises of toyota lexus at the top. bottom three are all big three brands including cadillac which plunges to the bottom of the lowest rank. >> olets move onto consumer report is also doing something unusual here that's to make a projection on the reliability of tesla's mode three. >> explain >> they have enough information based on the model s and x when they look at model three, they believe it will have
2:16 pm

2:18 pm
lower upgrade. you think that means people are going to get the 10 as opposed to waiting to see the 10 and possibly upgrading to the 7 at the end of the day the numbers are everyone worst for at&t their smart phone sales have down 20% the third quarter is challenging because of the lack of iphone 8 sales. when you go to the 10, there is the double positives, asp, people are going to get the high end version of that phone. the price point is $1,150. the asp for apple is $600. you are going to have the double benefit of going into the second quarter. investors should hold off a little bit for the panic mode where iphone 8 sales are >> based on the data points that you are getting from at&t and verizon on people not upgrading yet and maybe waiting for fourth
2:19 pm
quarter, iphone 10, are you optimistic of the process and for apple and fourth quarter verses a month ago you would think nothing of it and you will still have normal concerns that you have since upgrades have declined on a sequential basis and down so much compared to last year that does tend to be an indicator that there could be some hold back and purchase decisions until the 10 hits the market you are right, if anything, it is more of a sign of better anticipation of the december quarter than if they report a normal upgrade during this quarter. >> thank you for your time appreciate it. >> super model gigi have made millions of dollars. it is straight ahead we are going to give you an incredible look inside the house of hadid's and a look into a
