>> yes, we're indeed a financial program and i've got to tell you the weather is making a big financial headline this morning. the massive winter storm is barrelling all across the nation, from the midwest, where it's already hit, moving on later today to the northeast where i am right now, new york city. more than a foot of snow has already been dumped on some parts of the great lakes region. and they've calculated that roughly 78 million people will be affected by the storm. and at this moment we're going to bring in larry levin. he normally commentates on the weather. this storm hit chicago, how bad? >> it's abouten rough and it's been snowing for basically two
days straight. stuart. i have 57 people who work for me, about a third didn't show up for one reason or another, trying to get through the snow and the trains are delayed and more people are coming in and they're going to be late so we'll get off to a slow start. you look behind me, the s&p pits, hardly anybody there. a lot of traders trying to get in there. there will be a lack of participation. stuart: that's unusual because we're used to winter weather and we know all about snowfall and yet, suddenly we've got people who can't get to work. do you think it will affect pricing on the market at all? >> well, i think you could see a little, maybe more volatility with less people involved. one thing i would say, stuart, we're in a different age. somebody can't make it into the trading pit they can jump on the smart phone and trade their futures or equity contracts. i don't think it's going to slow them down as far as that per se. but if you get a big move or institutional volume that happens in the pits, that could
add volatility, but it will be short-lived. it's a lack of people getting to work for sure. stuart: we're waiting for it to get to us here in new york city, likely to arrive tonight, thursday night. we'll keep you up-to-date what's happening here in the big apple. larry stay there, back in a second. hackers exposing the user name and phone numbers of 4.6 million users of snap chat messaging app. and then we have the syrian electronic army a hacking group attached to the regime. and they say they've claiming that microsoft a reading user e-mails and skype. >> stay with us. the broadpoint is make is, your privacy doesn't exist on-line. i don't think it did. it certainly doesn't now. >> i agree there's a lot of
things we're putting out there publicly and a lot of things are exposed through hacks we've experienced with snap chat. >> i think the snap chat hack was deliberate and people say they want to raise awareness. and do you have any idea, raise awareness of what? >> i think that more and more folks out there are sharing their information want to see enhanced security and there with as a glitch in snap chat, a vulnerability that was exposed. snap chat said they addressed it, making more obstacles and the group wanted to expose it's still an issue and so they went ahead and unfortunately, they leaked about 4.6 million users names and phone numbers. stuart: snap chat is still a private company. told they're valued at 3, 3 1/2 billion dollars. that was the talk a few weeks ago, if they ever go public.
3 1/2 billion. do you think a hacking attack like this could reduce their value? >> so i don't-- it's a great question and clearly, there's rumor they turned down multi-billion dollar offers for their company. i think that one attack like this certainly puts pressure on them to increase their security. i think if it continues to happen it will certainly affect the valuation of the company and user confidence of the company, but one time, if they respond transparently and quickly they can recover and that's the value of this app that is used primarily by the teen market. stuart: fast, i know you're not a politician, is there a young angle to this? you don't like the hacking, do you? >> i think we're putting more and more information about ourselves out there. younger people are willing to share their location and more about themselves. we're sensitive that it can be
exploited in ways that we certainly would not like to have happen. stuart: we hear you. thanks very much for joining us, we'll see you again soon. >> thanks, stuart. stuart: a full show for you, 30 seconds for the other headlines. you don't recall this, wal-mart recalling the donkey meat in china. and traces of other meats, fox meat was found in some of the products. how about that. chrysler fully owned by the company, and bought out the union position. and amazon now charging sales tax in nevada, indiana, tennessee and charges sales tax in 16 other states. first trading day of the year, here we come coming off record highs last year. the youth trade based on the weather or pot in colorado? twooissues for you, answers coming up next. ♪

so larry levin come back in again. we saw terrific gains in 2013, people have been asking this morning, we are going to do it again in 2014? and i say, no, highly unlikely. and you say what? >> well, i would agree, won't see 20, 25% gain in the stock index, but i think it will start off that way and first month or two off to a good start and then we'll wait and see what the tapering really does. and because if money is harder to get, then certainly the stocks are going to go down at least in the second part of the first half of the year. so i would really watch for that. we get interest rates to rally then i'll totally agree we will not get the information. >> larry, i can tell that a the snowstorm kept a lot of people from the exchange. normally at 9:30 we get the roar when the trading session begins. right now it's quiet. all right, larry, good luck today. see you later. >> take care. >> now, we are down 34 points in the very-- 47 points in the very early going this first full trading
session of the year 2014. now, we're down 47. but we're at 16,528 as of right now. move onto the netflix story. netflix knows a lot of people share pass words and now it's cracking down and introducing new plans that could bring in more subscribers. lauren simonetti, is netflix up today? >> it's actually down by 1/2 of 1%. don't forget, this stock gained about 300 percent last year. you know, it's interesting, a lot of people share the netflix account. by cutting the price for a simple plan to 6.99 a month as a test, maybe some of the share customers will get their own plans and the other plan three people can use it. >> it cuts you off and you're not allowed to share and stream for free. i think a lot of people will prepare to do the right thing to get their own streaming. >> hopefully. >> and hopefully, and maybe this is the stock in the long
run, we shall see. thank you. >> and we'll call twitter the latest stock, it's wild swings in recent sessions and this morning, it's up to 65.50. is lauren still there. have you got any comments on twitter? we're calling it the horse race stock of the day. >> i'm surprised to see twitter up about 3% right now, but this stock has been momentous the past couple of days, from thursday on, stuart. so watch the volume. this has been tremendous and on sunday, 3 and 4% of total volume because it's just been so active. >> and we're on it. thanks, lauren. >> yeah. >> apple downgraded, how about that? apple downgraded today, wells fargo did it and the stock is down 4 bucks, apple, 5.57 also of right now. now i've covered it all. wal-mart recalling donkey meat sold at some of its stores in china and government tests
showed that meat contained the dna of other animals and it wasn't pure donkey meat. lauren, if you pay for donkey meat should you get it, am i right? >> and if you pay for it you should get it, and a lot of people are saying, oh, donkey meat. but the problem was wal-mart was selling in one of the biggest grocery stores in the world, fox meat and other such animal meats. this is a huge brand, yum! brands and k.f.c. having issue. stuart: and wal-mart says they're going to fill prescriptions in the next month, even if your obamacare coverage has not kicked in. so wal-mart is doing a nice thing there and saying we're going to cover you anyway. the stock, check it again, please. >> some kind of flat last checked. actually up. >> i will take it and thanks, lauren.
everybody remember this video that we showed you earlier this week? it was a train carrying oil. it derailed and exploded. that forced the evacuation of an entire town in north dakota. >> now, warren buffett, berkshire owns it. and buffett has been a proponent, oil safer way to move it. and no pipeline? transport it. and appears he's changing his tune, he's getting involved in pipeline technology. stuart: should we all investor in pipeline technology? >> i think if you haven't been in pipelines or in trains and manufacturing cars, any of those areas, i think it's delayed. those stocks are so if you willy priced right now. if they're paying a decent dividend, maybe get in and
average down. i think that prices what they are, especially the pipelines are fully priced and --. >> now we have been talking about the hacks on snap chat and skype. snap chat recently turned down a buyout offer from facebook. do you think that this hack devalues snap chat as a company? what do you think, shah? >> i don't think it does. i think this was a friendly hack in terms of folks that did this trying to prove to snap chat people that there are holes in their security and anytime you get a friendly essentially pointing this out, it's not going to be negative asking they can watch and fix and move forward on. as a note of interest for the viewers, i got recently a couple of letters, one from adobe and one from american express, there are breaches of security. i don't have much position in
those, but i'm getting the letters and they don't realize there may be marketing pieces not because-- the breaches are all over the place, they're dangerous and disturbing. >> but not affected any stock price yet to my knowledge. >> look out to 2014. give us your best stock. what's the stock that you're going to give our viewers right now that's going to do real well in 2014? >> well, my favorite singular stock would be tivo. we do own it, my subscribers own it. a million dollars in cash and 175 million dollars of long-term debt. we know what it does, you can manipulate your tv screen and save shows and slow them down and speed them up. and they have other areas, there's a research firm, also, do a lot of research on-line and from folks tivoing, watching what they're buying through the television sets and providing everythings in to marketers, to advisors, conduits for advertisers, and
opening up the businesses that are through the tivo boxes. you can buy a box at a retailer or essentially download on-line and you can get tivo through your smart phone and through your tablet. it's ubiquitous globally and i think it's going to do well in 2014. stuart: shah, beneath you we're running a banner that says that shah galani suggests looking at tivo and microsoft in 2014. why don't you give us an indication why microsoft? i still own it. >> we own it, we're bought at much lower level and we like it, paying a nice dividend. tens of millions in cash. and we get to see the ultimate change in who the ceo is going to be. i think it's going to be exciting. microsoft is spending a lot of money with the peripheral businesses and they're going to have a expansive view of the
globe and i think the product lines are going to increas spread and it's a growth stock again and i see 2014 being a robust year for microsoft. >> hold on, shah. going to get a weather report. we've got a massive winter storm bearing down on the east coast, bringing snow and freezing temperatures and then tell you about this, all 52 passengers aboard the research vessel stranded in the arctic have been rescued. the ship sent to the ant and the >> and they used a helicopter on the thin ice, they're out and it looks we are like we're looking at global cooling, forget the global warming. that's just my opinion. do you ever play the market by the weather? do you go out and buy generator
companies? >> no, we don't. and it's already gone up when the weather happens, most of those prices are built if in. if i wanted to, i would buy home depot or something like that. when we play for our portfolio, we're looking at long-term effects on commodity prices about you not short-term in terms of generators and that kind of stuff. stuart: fair enough, shah. a totally separate subject. now legal to buy marijuana in colorado. they look like the red box dvd dispensers except for they're black and the security. and the stock, and the news in
colorado is up 22 and change. and the stock last year was $100. and it uses biometrics to make sure you're allowed to get the medication in some states. >> medbox up today and down from 100 a year ago. and we're getting perilously close to a 100 point loss on the first trading day in 2014. 96 down. and telling president obama to go easien-- easy on edward snowden, and treat him like a whistleblower. we'll hear what our next guest has to say about that. ♪ no longer riding on the merry-go-round♪ ♪ i just had to let it go

snowden. this from the new york times editorial quote, mr. snowden deserves better than a life of permanent exile, fear and flight. he may have committed a crime to do so, but he has done his country a great service. that's the new york times. lets bring in the former state department, christian, what do you make of that editorial? >> well, stuart, it's full of m mendacity. and claims that he didn't do harm to security. and that's not an espionage act. it could be proven in snowden's case. key allies in germany and france. the difficulty the united states is going to have to reaching new intelligence sharing and collecting agreements with foreign governments or getting foreign assets to trust us, to give us information about our enemies or about terrorist networks. all of that's made more
difficult by what snowden did. the times is wrong on this. stuart: and where does the president stand? nsa spying is highly unpopular with young voters and that's his core constituency. where does he stand on this usual of spying? >> you think the administration might be skeptical, especially being close as it is to silicon vaaley. but also, they're not happy that this has made the president look bad and ought to be more of a black eye for obama than it's been because this administration failed to react on an earlier mass disclosure of information with wikileaks. they did prosecute the army private who was most directly involved and no actions against wikileaks and no actions to compartmentize information. and snowden was able to collect the information. and that's a no-no and something that the u.s.
government doesn't appear to have reacted to adequately. stuart: do you think the administration would take the advice of the new york times and offer this man clemency? >> i don't think so. at this point, the reason for clemency, to give that to spies, it was given to rick aims, the cia spy. they passed a over a death sentence to a life sentence because he was willing to cooperate. and what can they get from snowden. the russians, especially if you want to live in their country, they've probably already obtained what snowden has and the chinese in the brief stay in hong kong. there's no advantage to the government at this point. it's a terrible message. if you're a low-ranked intelligence officer and give one piece of information to the chinese or russians and you go to jail for a long time. if you give a lot to our add

more. and his government will build more' fordable housing. we need it, you build it. the pre-school, getting the theme, government will provide everything and government will do everything. who pays for all of this? the rich. big corporations and wall street. we've heard this before. five years ago, candidate obama was all about government and that's what he delivered, all government, all the time. culminating in the disaster known as obamacare. this is an election year. the mayor, the president and the left, they're laying out their rallying ground early. give to these people because it's fair. take from these people because they've got what we want. let's hope this is the year when middle america figures out it's been had. one more point, the left is playing the race card. at mayor deblasio's inauguration, the city was described as a plantation. it's part of a concerted effort
to portray all people of color as victims. throw in msnbc's disgustiig mockery of mitt romney and his black grandchildren and they have deliberate division, they eals and class warfare. i think it's desperation and the writing is on the wall. government isn't working. i think the left is going to lose. she keeps you on your toes.

two internet security breaches today, hackers exploiting the user names of users of snap chat and separately the syrian electronic army, actor group with ties to assad hackers microsoft x video chat service skype. these attacks are becoming much more prevalent. you don't see any of the big internet stocks taking any kind of hit whatsoever with these breaches of security. charles: these two were interesting because they were warnings almost. one organization called themselves the hackers, you have flaws in your system. a couple days later another group support these flaws putting all the information, over 4 million people, deliberately blurred people's phone-number is but we're trying to make a point even when these organizations are warned they have problems they don't do
anything about it. assyrian army, electronic comic, we don't know if they're really syrian but support assad, the point they are trying to make is microsoft by putting out steve ballmer's information is microsoft is in bed with the u.s. government, those seven tech companies that went to the white house with this feigned anger and phoney war against the white house and nsa snooping a real life in bed with them and selling them information. in both cases more political statement than economic or monetary gain or motives although the ease that these guys do this has to scare everybody. stuart: privacy? we lost it. no one expects privacy on the internet. charles: to the degree where people go on the sights and voluntarily tell the world everything, give out every single thing. don't know how much privacy would expect it may be a skype conversation between you -- we
expect some privacy. stuart: i wonder if down the road there will be a huge class-action lawsuit. i gave you this information, you lost it, pay up. not out of the question. charles: i am concerned what can be done, how much of this is so easily accessible that the big deal happens. we don't know what it will be but it could be so big we look back and say we had a million warnings and chances to fix. let's move on to the weather. massive winter storm is barreling across the nation from the midwest and threatening the northeast. more than a foot of snow is dumped in the great lakes region. they calculate roughly 78 million people will be affected by the storm. we have sandra smith with us from chicago. larry 11 from chicago 45 minutes ago says a third of his workers couldn't get in today. is that what you are seeing?
>> this is usually the biggest trading pet on the trading floor in chicago. not only the snow but the day after new year's day, and obviously a lot of people not showing up for work today. rahm emanuel, mayor of new york city under a lot of pressure to get snow plows out there under a lot of pressure to get those snow plows out there. 300 snowplows and the city of chicago and people can't get to work today. there is no everywhere. sometimes 16 inches of snow since new year's eve. this is what we are wearing to work down here. nothing fancy on the feet in chicago. 20 degrees right now temperatures are expected to fall below zero heading into the rest of the week, still another three inches of snow today. is the mess in the city and as far as the budget is concerned the city having a tough time,
they already exceeded their budget for 2013, they flew past it and we are starting the year, hasn't started box -- hasn't stopped snowing. it is expensive. charles: we will call those your global warming boots. we want to see you wearing them. thank you very much, see you soon. let's get to the new york stock exchange, two headlines on apple. >> apple stock is down. the big part of the nasdaq and the s&p, decline is significant. here is the news, bad news first, wells fargo cutting the market, they are concerned about the wireless providers comment and how the iphone vi cycle is going to do. this is surprising. can tour fitzgerald says quote make in our view 2013 was the year to forget for apple. only 5% but 2014 will prove to
be a year of innovation and they are adding the tech giant to their stock picks for this year. stuart: new york city's new ultraliberal mayor bill deblasio sworn in yesterday, some divisive language used by some of the speakers at the ceremony. listen to what is chaplain had to say. >> proclaiming the beginning of a new beginning, that the plantation called new york city the the city of god, a city set up on the health, a light shining in darkness. stuart: new york city plantation. is this the strategy the democrats are going to use in the next election? crystal right is editor of the blog of conservative black check and is here for this. i say democrats are playing the race card and you say what? >> democrats continue to play the race card and down across
the united states, sideways, up and down, you name it but what i want to know is when are black americans going to reject this victimization kind of name-calling? we are always on the plantation, poor little slaves that can't seem to make it and get ahead like everybody else. the reality is what is so ironic about the invocation that was given before bill deblasio's speech was over the last 20 years under republican mayors blacks of the well, graduation rates of increase, crime is down, charter schools are thriving. all these things help black americans in new york city. that doesn't look like a plantation to me. stuart: what do you make a mockery of the black grandchild of mitt romney? i was appalled at this. they mocked the man because he has got a black grandchild. that is another playing of the race card.
another way of saying white republicans are racist. that is what they are saying. >> we allow it. it is a double standard and we continue to allow, we continue to allow the liberal media to not be held accountable and what is so ironic and discussing and repugnant is melissa harris parrot, she has this hyphenated long name, that is another conversation, she is a biracial child born to a white mother and a black father so she thinks it is funny, it is okay for her family. represents inclusion. when mitt romney at sun wants to adopt a black baby, black babies in america aren't adopted at a rate of white babies and he showed off all his grandkids, he and ann romney have 26 grandchildren, christmas is the time of forgiveness and -pcelebration of life and redemption and what melissa does with her analyst, she mocks like
you said the white conservative for his charity and generosity of heart. i found it so disgusting as a black american on so many levels and the fact that she would do it when she is coming from multiracial background. stuart: when do you think black folks in america will reject this racial appeal? >> they are starting to reject it and on twitter we saw a lot of people say wait a minute. a lot of black americans were disgusted by her behavior and they want her to go further than five tweets and an apology. that is a have a big apology to mitt romney because quite frankly she should have shut her mouth, she never should have set to begin with and i want to know why we as conservatives and decent americans aren't calling for m snbc to force her to suspend her and/or flyer. remember what they did to rush limbaugh when he talked about the fact that he didn't think sandra flu should have her birth control paid for by taxpayers?
there was nothing wrong with what he said but you see what happened with that, advertisers pull the plug because he is conservative. stuart: you want to say something? charles: the question of when will black people reject that, when will they have a better counter argument? the other side says you can be bought off with a crappy cellphone and there is no way we can get your vote than what is the alternative for black people? to be quite frank i think is an easy sell, capitalism, success in america and i don't know why there hasn't been a better push. stuart: people who believe in capitalism and markets haven't made a greater appeal. stuart: obama gave away a crappy cellphone. we are not talking and i phone 5. it blows me away. >> the politics of dumbing down when you talk to minorities. we spoke about this before.
the alternative means we as republicans need to go into the community and say do you like being poor, the like being stuck in the middle? the want the american dream? you get it through opportunity. government can't give you that. you know what gives you that? we have the opportunity to get a great job and fries up the economic ladder. charles: it is not even though this particular reverend fred logan talked about a plantation this whole battle, this income inequality isn't just about blacks or hispanics. they are applying this to a lot of people, putting together their coalition for 2014-2016 and it is all about the haves that have nots and that is how they're putting it together. they have been very successful and i worry how the counterpunch will be applied because all the things i saw on twitter over the weekend or yesterday, i am glad i'd don't live in new york city. it will be in texas next week. stuart: last word to you. >> charles is right.
what is happening in california businesses over the last five years since we had the recession businesses like hardee's, carl's jr. moving to texas just because of charles's point. people who are wealthy in california are fleeing and going to places like texas where there is no state income tax rate you can start a business and provide jobs and keep more of your income. that is the american dream and that is the message i will hackers this, republicans need to talk about why capitalism and achieving the american dream is a good thing. you can tax the rich to debt and it won't make you rich. won't going to work. charles: music to our words. stuart: thanks very much rejoining us. back to lauren simonetti. urban outfitters another retailer up in a down market. what is going on? >> number 2 in the s&p 500 got an upgrade to buy at jeffrey
