1:04 pm
what is that to get excited about. lori: do you see that foley's strength in earnings report because of the profit growth or will it be bottom line, more cost-cutting, and will it be as forgettinforgiving of companiesy beat the estimate if it is not due to profit growth? top line growth? >> we had to see topline growth, that is the key. the key for the stock market. fortunately we see that turnaround. the institute for supply management index, my favorite indicator of for profit and revenue growth is splashing a really good signal over the course of the next six months where likely to see profit rise. a good relationship between the isn index have profits over the next six months. better revenue growth will be the key to pulling profits up over the course of the next year. lori: europe is on a tear, seven
1:05 pm
straight days of rally, the euro dollar exchange shooting up to 137, a weakening dollar. >> a weaker dollar. we don't like to see weaker dollar. it is understandable with the fed, our friend, little bit of pressure on the dollar as is likely to be lower for longer interest rates in the u.s. that actually does create a more favorable economic momentum backdrop. lori: the china market is heating up again. and that is a good demand for our exports, no? >> china has been seeing some soft numbers. hopefully we see it pick up again. they were really worried about what they shutdown and debt default can mean for the u.s. what it can mean economically for the exports that may be improving as well. you are right. lori: no slowing down, buying into the market for the fourth quarter. see you very soon.

1:07 pm
federal reserve bank of cleveland says the shutdown will also affect the accuracy of these statistics for months to come. the repercussions will continue for at least seven months because of data collection. that has some economist pushing the taper to the feds december meeting at the earliest, but with physical battles pushed back to the new year because of this deal this week, barclays capital says the shutdown may also delay the paper by slowing consumer spending. in the real economy, households that rely on payments from the government may take more precautionary action to inflate themselves from potential future disruptions. these effects proved to be economically material, a delay of fed tapering and the 2014 would seem likely. adam. adam: federal reserve governor speaking this hour. expect to have anything to add
1:08 pm
regarding the talks? >> that speech is just getting underway. he is focusing on bank regulation and too big to fail banks. the governor says the fed and the fdic will propose in the next few months to require bank holding companies to hold loss absorbing debt that would supplement higher capital requirements and help prevent future taxpayer bailouts if the banks get in trouble again. at them. adam: we will see how the banks react to that. thank you very much. >> you bet. lori: u.s. money market funds some of the biggest outflows last week since august of 2011. reporting investors poured $43 billion. a government could on its debt. while we could see some of that money come in, the next shutdown could be 89 days away leaves some folks on the sidelines. adam: commuters in san francisco faced heavy traffic and delays get into work this morning.

1:10 pm
lori: chicago o'hare international airport new runway open for business. we will take you there. adam: how about stone you like a tornado? hoping to follow up on the success has a movie about flying boulders and they jumped the shark, wouldn't you agree? when we made our commitment to the gulf, bp had two big goals:
1:11 pm
help the gulf recover and learn from what happened so we could be a better, safer energy company. i can tell you - safety is at the heart of everything we do.

1:13 pm
lori: chicago o'hare international airport tops the list when it comes to delays, cancellations and overall traveler headaches. all that may change when it comes to a new cemetery runway. our very own jeff flock on the scene, calling it a cemetery runway? jeff: here is the deal. not because of anything that will happen to you after you take off. the new runway out there behind me, maybe you can hear that plane, cannot see them too well, it is built over a cemetery.
1:14 pm
150-year-old cemetery. take a look at the map of the runways. maybe you see what the concessionaires. there is also when it comes to congestion, o'hare is still number one. take a look at the numbers from the department of transportation on the worst airports for departures. the worst airport is o'hare. 67% of the flights take off on time. midway second. newark third. dallas is forth. got to wondering where is a good place to take off from. take a look at these numbers on the best places. no cities that we are anywhere near. number one is portland. 87% of those flights take off on time. salt lake city, seattle and phoenix. best places to fly from. next hour, the best places to fly to. airline stocks a big day for a lot of stocks today, but many

1:16 pm
introduction we had from our elected officials interrupted what had been an uptrend. on the s&p last month, that seems to put an nice bottom in place for us to continue the upward trajectory into the end of the year. adam: phil flynn, oil searching for direction even as we get up its numbers out of china with growth to the economy, why are we searching for direction? >> the oil market seems to be decoupling from the rest of the commodity complex. the reason is very clear. if you look at what is happening around the globe, geopolitical risk premium is probably at the lowest level it has been in decades. add to that u.s. production near record high, near record high, big production in the middle east keeping the cap on this market. again maybe the oil market is going to get away from the risk on, risk on mentality we dealt
1:17 pm
with since the financial crisis began. adam: i want to go back to something you said about revenue. i thought revenue would be the big player and people would be upset with what we see. i want to pull out general electric. what propelled the stock was the backlog of orders. if you cancel the orders again what am i missing? sounds like people are overly optimistic. >> you're not missing the point and revenue. but on the exchanges the stock market look forward, it is a backlog of orders the market is looking at an something indicative of an economy, the world economy improving. nowhere near as quickly as it has in the past and nowhere near as quickly as we would like it to. given the fact of the matter the fed is going to have to taper at some point it continues to tell investors with the long-term horizon they need not be in bonds and needs to be inequities. adam: now i want to go back to phil flynn. golgold is on track for a gain r
1:18 pm
the week. people should be inequities. what would you say? >> they are both good, what the heck. why not buy in bulk, and gold has gotten a lot of people confused this week. everybody was so negative on gold, the risk trade is out, as we got to the government crisis gold had their best week in a turnaround. there was one person who came out with a very strong accommodation for gold. the ecb chief asked him last week fed chairman ben bernanke said we don't understand gold, but mario druggie does. he says he doesn't understand why central banks would be selling gold. he says it is a very good hedge against the dollar. the magic man who can stop an economic crisis with a few words that he can start a gold rally with the same kind of
1:19 pm

1:25 pm
now back to lori and adam. adam: thank you very much. general motors making moves to pick up sales in the pickup trucks. it is counterintuitive, but it is raising prices. to get potential buyers a rebate. is this all a gimmick? an auto critic for the detroit free press. thank you for joining us. you guys in detroit understand how the manufacturers price their products. i always thought rebate were a bad word because it cheapens the brand but indicates they're having a a tough time moving products. what is gm trying to do here? >> actually rebates have become part of the cost of doing business. every new vehicle just what introduced with some kind of a rebate on it. part of what people expect to see in advertising. since they went on sale three months ago have been selling very well. the prices they get at the top of the industry. what they are called the transaction price is the price of vehicle actually sells for
1:26 pm
after rebates and all that stuff. chevy and gmc trucks averaging the highest in the industry. more a case of raising prices because we can and no longer have to talk about having the rebate so they can get people a deal. they seem to have played the hand pretty well. the trucks have been well received. adam: in comparison to ford and somebody who doesn't follow the sales portions of the car industry as closely as you do, who is selling more trucks, ford or gm? >> ford is selling more trucks, which has been the case for years. general motors has picked up a couple of points of share this year, which is difficult to do especially with trucks. pick of owners tend to be phenomenally loyal because they use the trucks for work so much, they can't take any chances so they stick to something that works. gm managed to pick up a couple of points of shares. a new truck is coming next year, that is helping gm as well. adam: whose margin of profit on
1:27 pm
the truck is better? >> right now, general motors. gm was averaging probably about $2500 higher. that will have changed since then, but it was a significant amount. adam: what is the inventory? >> they haven't said, which is a bit surprising. nobody knows why. but they have not been introducing the inventory levels of the trucks. that information will probably come out from some third sourc sources, but we don't know at the moment. adam: from my ignorance it would seem to me when you have high inventory, high number of days of inventory, that indicates trouble and usually he is to rebate at that point. as a part of this they are not telling us because the sales are not as strong as they would like us to believe? >> it is certainly possible. but all of the figures we do see seem to suggest the sales are going quite strongly.
1:28 pm
they finally got rid of all of the old model, 2013. that showed increased sales of the new one even more because some people were buying old ones because there were good deals on it. still some numbers we haven't seen. it is possible there is some sort of a surprise hiding in them. they seem to support these pickups have been well received and gm hit hit the market just t the right time when demand for pickups was writing this year. adam: will we see people buy more of these pickups? people who may want to have a gift for the wife or husband? >> you will probably see some of that, and a lot of commercial buying. one of the things many businesses do at the end of the year when their accountants so you need to increase your cap capital expenditures this year to reduce your tax liability a lot of people figure this is a good time to get some new trucks for the work fleet.
1:29 pm
the last month or so of the year tends to be pretty strong for pickups as well. adam: i appreciate you being here. i did not ask one question about the studebaker truck on the 1960s. that is for another day. thank you. >> thank you. lori: a few months we told you about the bond car that went up for auction. from the 1977 james bond movie. "the spy who loves me." it sold for nearly $1 million to a mystery buyer. the identity has now been revealed and it is none other than billionaire and tesla ceo elon musk. it was designed as a submarine car, propelled itself underwater and he plans to upgrade the car with a tesla power train so it can transform for real. who else would have picked up that car. adam: the car runs on land and in the water. better than a vw bug. lori: if you have the cash.
1:30 pm
adam: not that car. lori: you don't have a need for an amphibious vehicle? adam: no, but i would love a jaguar convertible, that would be very nice. i would use the rest of the money to have a lot of fun. lori: i will trade you my minivan. adam: you can keep the minivan and we will have fun. lori: ubs bullish case on amazon next. adam: officials in the u.s. territory trying their best for rising debt concerns. with a serious risk to u.s. bond investors, should the u.s. step in to help? ♪

wow...look at you. i've always tried to give it my best shot. these days i'm living with a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis.
1:32 pm
and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis ifyou have an artificial heart valve abnormal bleing. while taking eliquis, yomay bruise more easily and it m take longer than usual for any bleeng to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i've got three important reasons to up my game with eliquis. [ male announcer ] ask your doctor today if eliquis is right for you. ...amelia... neil and buzz:

lori: we do want to get you updated on the markets. another historic day for the s&p 500 index. straight to schnick coal petroleum on floor of the new york stock exchange. but the dow index, fighting to hold on to some gains here. >> right. what is interesting about the dow, yesterday we saw the dow, it was, heavily weighed upon by ibm and also goldman sachs, unitedhealth also weighed on the dow. today some of the names are holding it back, we've seen some drug stocks with down arrows but right now we have to focus on the s&p 500 because that is the name that hit the record all-time high. that is the index that really is wowing wall street. and we can't leave out nasdaq right? that is 13-year highs. talk about amazon which has been a winner there. new high of 331.67 on amazon. an up grade. analyst upgrade at ubs. they raised rating to a buy from a neutral. price target to 385 from
1:35 pm
revenue growth reaccelerating. they see upside potential especially from the kindle. ad business is underappreciated. ubs hot on amazon. we'll keep an eye on it. lori: one-stop shopping for all the working moms, right, nicole? >> is all good. >> thank you. >> another concern over the world's addiction to debt is coming home to roost. it is not detroit. we're looking south to puerto rico. if you don't think you have skin in this game, think again. more than 3/4 of municipal funds hold puerto rico debt. we have a on someone from volte capital markets. catherine, you say there is real reason for concern. i agree with you but in real simple terms, why should we worry? >> puerto rico is behemoth in the municipal bond market. as you mentioned more than 3/4
1:36 pm
of municipal bond fund have it. oppenheimer, dreyfus, franklin templeton, goldman sachs have it in large quantities. adam: let's talk about that. i pulled one of them. franklin templeton connecticut tax-free income fund. sound very innocuous. sounds like they're buying debt of connecticut. buying muni bonds from bridge for the and somewhere in connecticut. the single greatest holding within that fund, $22 million worth of that, is puerto rican sales tax bond. that is troubling especially when you considering that puerto rico is on the verge of default with its bonds, is it not? >> yeah. there are about, to give another example, there are seven off pen himmer fund have 25 and 33% of their total portfolio exposure to puerto rico. they have names of different states. you're exactly right, adam. this is important for municipal bond and broad retail investors
1:37 pm
to take note, what is in your municipal bond portfolio. adam: it is not easy to find. what i dug into franklin templeton online two hours ago i had to go through different pages before i got to actual percent dollar holdings and figures. let me ask you this. franklin testimony ton income fund. they sold off quite a bit. of the at one point 20% of the fund was in puerto rico. now it is 10%. who is holding this? are pension financed in the united states holding this fund? >> institutional investors certainly but you have a lot of retail investors. that would be my warning, look into your mutual fund portfolios and see what you're holding because a lot of mutual fund portfolios hold puerto rican bond exposure. this doesn't mean puerto rico is on precipice of default. it could be over next couple years but right now things are looking tenuous. this is an island, a commonwealth of the united states that has huge debt load. adam: talk about tenuous.
1:38 pm
$70 billion total debt. island nation that has 100 billion-dollar gdp. 53 billion is tax supported debt. at end of the day, yeah, the puerto rican constitution requires puerto rico to pay its bondholders first in case of default. but what happens if, god forbid, there is default they say you know what, we don't have any money? what good is a constitutional guaranty. >> that's right. on both fronts you're right, the constitution does put bondholders first in payments but at the end of the day if it comes to it what are they going to do? we don't know. there is real risk here. puerto rico has been in recession since 2006. adam: yes. >> hard really to improve this process when you have no growth and massive debt load. the government is taking some steps to do so, adam the real question is, will they be able to do it and is it almost too little too late? adam: it sound too little too late, cost of borrowing, they
1:39 pm
can't go to the market with bond. yield on bonds is 8% at this point? they have to do short-term borrowing from banks. they roll over the debt. they have unfunded pension obligations worse than any state in the united states. >> that's right. >> this can't end pleasantly, can it? >> well, if the market kind of recede a little bit, i mean 30-year bond from the commonwealth touched, above 10%. actually past two or three weeks it rallied 10% precisely reason you mentioned. the government said they may not be issue now through year-end. which would produce a supply glut. that being said, keep two things in mind. one a downgrade that would be devastating because it would put puerto rico into below investment grade category, forcing selling of mutual funds, by rule of fund can have only exposure to investment grade so there may be forced selling. as you mentioned earlier there is a huge swath of investors including retail investors who hold puerto rican debt who would
1:40 pm
be seriously affected not the mention the systemically risk and flow over to such weaker names as california, illinois. adam: bingo. >> correct. correct. adam: we have to wrap it there. i lived in spain when i was much younger. they had an expression when i would get all freaked out. don't worry. other part of that is -- [speaking spanish] okay, worry. catherine, thank you very much. >> thank you very much. lori: got your attention. stock alert. check this out, electronic health records athenahealth shares soaring after earnings. as well as on upgrade from stearn agee from neutral to buy but we want to show you the pe, price-to-earnings ratio. this is a metric on a company's valuation. well it is coming in over 21,000. 21,286 to be exact. the p-e ratio is fundamental metric. once again to evaluate the relative value of a stock to compare price with earnings per share. normally you see like
1:41 pm
double-digit pes. health care stocks typically have high p-e ratios because investors expect higher earnings ratio. but for a comp ge, p-e ratio at 18. google, topped 1,000 bucks apiece for shares. only 29. ibm, another tech company, 12. how do you measure against 21,000? screams bubble to me but we shall see. adam: amazon i think, don't quote me. because they don't pay a dividend but their pe is pretty high. anyway, many defenses in the nfl tried and miss but now you may be able to get a piece of houston, texas running back aryan foster. we'll explain. lori: it's a boulder, rock or a stonado. spawn of cult classic "sharknado" barreling into a living room near you. details next.

lori: success in the heels. tony award-winning musical "kinky boots" is kick up a big profit on broadway. the hit show recouped original $13.5 million investment in 30 weeks since opening on broadway. that is incredible amount of time,f time, considering the size of this production. seven-time tony award-winning darrell ross is producer of "kinky boots." she joins us now. wonderful to meet you. >> thank you. lori: how do you spot a hit? certainly have an eye for it. >> thank you. kinky started as a small film i saw at sundance festival. i fell in love with the story. it was a magnificent little film to me somehow felt like it could be muse alizeed. that was the beginning. lori: what does it say about what you saw on the screen that you knew would translate to the screen? >> it is about the story. the story is heartfelt. it talked about issues meaningful to me, raised social consciousness. accepting people for who they are and people becoming who they
1:54 pm
are meant to be. it had the fare-son story which is wonderful to explore. lori: average ticket price for "kinky boots" is $142. multiply by day-night, challenges of having small kids, baby-sitter, cost of transportation, you have to have a spectacular show, right, to get people to pay that much money for just the ticket. so how do you get the word out? how does that come to be? >> well i would agree with you that the ticket is the average, ticket price. we also have tickets that are available for as little as $37 for a student ticket, $77 in the mezzanine and of course we offer premium tickets too. the average price you mention of 140 is accumulation of that. lori: what goes on in marketing and word the mouth process? because there is a lot of competition broadway, right? gross earnings for broadway is basically flat according to the broadway league 2013 year-end stats. attendance is little soft, down 6%.
1:55 pm
so how do you choose people to convince your to come to your show? >> the tony award certainly helped. the recognition we received at the time is extraordinary. the reason we're so second susful and in fact are not flat at all but really grossing a million six a year because we are delivering joy and happiness and entertainment wrapped up with some glitter and glam. wonderful messages about being true to yourself and i think that, while our advertise something very spot-on and we think about it, talk about it every day in our marketing plan. we also try to really reach out to a broad, broad audience. we're seeing a lost tourists. seeing a people of all ages. lori: word-of-mouth snowballs. there are posters on the train platform every day. you have the tony awards and all the wonderful recognition, probably much easier to bring people in. initially when you're from, its inception and origination to bringing it to the stage, i'm more curious about that process?
1:56 pm
>> the beginning? we did struggle during the preview period. you know what is this "kinky boots"? what does that mean? we don't get it? is it good for everyone? they weren't sure, is it a drag show? what is it? until people started seeing it and leaving theater, saying oh, my god you have to see this fabulous musical it was hard to find our identity. as people started seeing it and as you pointed out word-of-mouth started growing and growing we built a wonderful fan base. lori: we have leave it there for time. >> pleasure. lori: interesting to hear the side of what goes on behind the scenes for broadway musical. huge for city of new york. 11.2 billion, 86,000 jobs broadway supports in our city. we're grateful for that. >> one of the largest aspects of our new york city economy, broadway. lori: thanks for coming in. adam: tech stocks are soaring led by google, while china's lenovo eyes blackberry. our twitter question of the day if you had $5,000 to invest

2:04 pm
war with iran probably for the last decade and with those talks we've seen that come down. we're seeing a surge in u.s. oil production. u.s. production is surging every day. we'll overtake saudi arabia and be biggest producer in the year. we're seeing opec production really soar. that is coo creating a buffer. now oil can focus on supply and demand fundamentals than anything else in the globe. we're seeing heating oil and fuels rallying. you in the northeast will get a little cold. heating oil market says it will get colder today. that is the spread. natural gas reversed from an earlier loss to close a bit higher. the other big market today, you have to look at is the goldmarkket. the dow is down $8.40s. the fed taper plans are off the table. the reason many people gave for gold selling off in the first place 20% from the highs was the
2:05 pm
lack of fed activity with the fed activity being put back, no tapering, bullish for gold, down today. the other thing i thought was very interesting, mario draghi today was asked in a press conference, what do you think about the goldmarkket? he thinks that the goldmarkket is very good store of wealth. we'll see if he is right. back to you. >> we will indeed. wow, great synopsys. phil flynn, price futures group. have a great weekend. tracy: phil is good weatherman. my daughter told me we might have snow on halloween this year, again, again! adam: what? tracy: our abominable snowman stage director. adam: from syracuse. lives for snow. tracy: battle over job creation and at center is a copper mine in arizona. native americans fighting congress over sacred land. fox's will carr with the details of that little land swap. hey, wil. >> hi, guys. this is arizona's copper
2:06 pm
corridor. it has a big impact not only on the state but also the country. but when you go into the town of superior and talk that people they're not interested really what is happening on the national level because they're really desperate for jobs right here. >> in superior arizona, homes are boarded up, businesses sit empty. the unemployment rate is almost 20%. many residents hope resolution copper, a mine that could be largest in the country opens soon. when you hear resolution copper what do you think? >> jobs. >> we need the mine. people still want to work the mine, making good money. >> we'll be generating a billion dollars of economic stimulus a year. that is the equivalent of two, three, four super bowls every year for 40 years right here in the town of superior. >> jump in a bucket and you can see the resolution copper mine already runs more than a mile deep. >> they have been developing this mine for years. when all said and done the

2:08 pm
open in chicago o'hare's. don't want to land done it, do you? you may be surprised why exactly they're calling it that. jeff flock is there to explain. jeff? >> it's a new day, ashley at o'hare in chicago. it is the nation's most congested airport could be, well, almost dead. take a look at construction you see off behind me there. they're building a berm around the newest runway. today is the first full day of the newest runway they dubbed the cemetery runway. they wanted to build this so bad, they actually dug up a cemetery and removed bodies and reinturned remains elsewhere to build the run way o'hare that may jeopardize o'hare as the nation's most congested delay-prone airport. look at latest numbers from the department of transportation. this is the first seven months of 2013. o'hare had just 67% of its flights that departed on time. it was worst in the nation. midway, acrosstown in chicago,
2:09 pm
second worst, followed by newark and dallas. when it came to places that you don't want to fly into, that is the most fewest on-time arrivals, o'hare was on that list too. newark was worst in the nation. laguardia second. o'hare third in the nation. by the way, what were the best airports to fly into or fly out of? nowhere near around here. portland, salt lake city, seattle apphoenix the best airports to fly out of if you're looking at departures on time. this cemetery runway, they say at o'hare will cut congestion by 50%, giving them an extra place to fly out of. it will help in bad weather. take a look at airline stocks. i'll tell you. they have been soaring. a lost stocks doing well today. but some of these stocks, many of them, airline stocks, at all-time, not all-time highs but year-to-date highs. among them delta, up 10% year-to-date. and united, big carrier at
2:10 pm
o'hare, up 32%. i just checked the departure boards. almost no delays on a very overcast day at o'hare. maybe this runway could finally be what they need to make this airport a little less of a headache. adam: whatever helps, jeff flock. thank you so much. but of course if you fly, obviously pays to live out west. they can get planes out on time out there. tracy: you can't build enough runways to get newark back on time. i love my state, but that airport -- adam: almost on top of every this, late this, rotten that, horrible this. what can you say. tracy: no, nothing. nothing. abc urn loading its tv station? what is going on? dennis kneale is ahead with why the mouse house may be making that big move. while many companies are actually gobbling up tv. adam: get this. some of the federal workers who were furloughed in the government shut down may now get paid twice for the work they never even did.

2:16 pm
and sections and subsection and regions over time w very underneath the hood view what subpoena hag across the chinese economy. adam: what we just herd the economy growing at a nice pace. we should point out that is year-over-year and not month to month or quarter to quarter. so you say don't buy the fact that china is suddenly firing on all engines again? >> that is exactly right. people woke up. they checked the gdp number. they saw it went up. so the automatic reaction wow, we saw the chinese economy grow. as you said chinese announce growth year on year, not quarter on quarter. when you look at q2 to q3, our beige book data was a mild slowdown. there was not strength in the economy. adam: back in june we heard they were pumping all sorts of money and stimulus into the economy. is that true. >> it wasn't true. what the market missed. there was panic in june. caused the chinese government to have major stimulus program. that manufactured rebound and made the economy recover.
2:17 pm
everyone of those were actually a myth did not happen. there was no major stimulus program this quarter which is a good thing. there was no manufacturing rebound and no economic recovery. >> how would you describe the economy of china right now? >> muddling along. that is good for china. what you don't want to see if looking out for china health in medium term and long term is another growth injection of stimulus that would spur short term gains but really hurt the coon my in the long run. despite what the market thinks that did not happen in china this quarter t was much healthier scenario but that meant a slight slowdown. >> we've seen yuan strengthen a bit. is that good for the chinese economy? that has to hurt the exports, right? >> it hurt exports but shifting things over to consumers. so by appreciating the currency, they're empowering households to spend more. that goes along with their thesis they want to help domestic consumption. >> winston churchill said
2:18 pm
famously of russia, russia is a riddle wrapped inside of a enigma. i keel that is how you can describe chinese days. as force businesses ibm in the latest reporting showed some problems in china and there is a belief that the chinese authorities are trying to put the squeeze a little bit on western companies and trying to boost chinese companies at the same time. do you hear anything about that? >> i think they are trying to put the screws to foreign companies but they're not targeting foreign companies. right now in china everyone is really under the gun. there is an anticorruption drive. there is specifically anti-bribery drive. they're trying to clean things up. they don't want to appear they're only targeting domestic firms. a lot of foreign firms are in the cross-hairs but those firms are unlikely to be the target of crackdown. adam: >> starbucks is the in cross-hairs. there are complaints that starbucks is charging way too much for its coffee. in fact more than they are in hong kong, tokyo and london.
2:19 pm
i don't know if that is true but that is another example, putting pressure on western company. >> peculiarly chinese complaint. i think prices in new york are too high too but you don't see people outraged about that. yeah, a lot of these, chinese government is needing to crack down a little bit on the foreign companies so they get away. >> we're out of time. very quickly what was going on here with the budget battle that must have had a big impact on china as well, right? >> it scared them a lot. they're along for the ride. there is nothing the chinese can do. their system is premised around the fact they will take reserves and plug them into u.s. treasurys. >> we're out of time. leland miller. thank you for being here. we appreciate it. tracy: that is good stuff. unions shutting down san francisco's b.a.r.t. system which stands for what? >> bay area rapid transit. not so rapid right now. tracy: apparently not. you won't believe how seemingly minor issues are. >> our twitter question of the day, if you had $5,000 to invest would you buy shares of google

2:26 pm
of the acquisitions it is much riskier investment. google really only faces possibility of regulation or, an act of god to break its revenue-run, so it is the much less risky, but probably won't have the jump that blackberry might have short term. >> never know. since the ipo. , it is up 1076% give or take. that is crazy. that is only from 2004. it is at $1,000. you say this thing could keep going. >> yeah, it could. they have basically amounts to a goose that lays ever larger golden eggs. the problem when you reach this kind of revenue, governments take interest. that is why i raised regulations. recognize what google sells is is it stuff you know. not stuff they own. they make money selling access to you. governments often sit back, don't we own the people? so -- tracy: there is that, there is
2:27 pm
that chance that one of the governments, all of which are hard-hit for cash might jump up with a special tax to help google out. tracy: which is crazy. you're absolutely right. a lot of people figure out how to monetize all the stuff. google has it figured out, haven't they, with google analytics in particular? >> not just the analytics. they were slow to that. they captured the majority of those revenues. they're at the heart of advertising here. thereby any measure they would be considered a monopoly in most markets. they have a huge lobby in washington. it held off the kind of thing when microsoft reached, actually they never reached this scale but that is what hurt microsoft. google very powerful lobby keeping google out of trouble. they're taking personal information and government is doing a much better worse job than that. so it is hard to take the government action against google for something they are are doing. tracy: they will figure out a
2:28 pm
way to do that. s that for sure. talk about lenovo, that i doesn't know they ship more smartphones than blackberry, 4.7 versus 2.7 globally. is this the best black per is going to see? >> from the standpoint of an ongoing business it is. lenovo bought the pc business from ibm and turned it into a world business. they showcased to take a property like blackberry and cause it to pay dividends. acquisition of blackberry's size often fail. lenovo is one of the few companies that showcased they have the skillset to take this thing forward. plus the blackberry brand and thinkpad brand dovetails very nicely. similar channels. similar businesses. you get a lot of synergy in the acquisition. lenovo can afford to pay more because they get more from it. tracy: they sure do. rob enderle, principle analyst of the enderle group of the a lot of information in a few minutes. thank you, sir.
