1:01 pm
nicole: we have been watching the market. a 3.5% loss on the dow and straddles, we are down almost a half of a percent. it could be a lot worse if it was not for caterpillar. the tech heavy nasdaq, the worst of the bunch down 1.5%. you have names like caterpillar and burke that are trying to help things along here. they gave an outlook which was better then expect it. they have been cutting costs and also a buyback. that is a nice recipe in that is why you see the stock up nearly 4%. about 23 positive dow points. back to you.

1:03 pm

1:04 pm
that number and it does not necessarily correlate with the growth number, it is hard to see growth when we are putting out record after record each quarter. adam: you are actually optimistic with revenue. the expectation is 3%. >> last week it bumped up to 3.6%. last quarter we saw 4.1% revenue growth. the highest we have seen in the last quarter. how much longer can companies cut costs. now this quarter we are seeing that all bump in revenue. it just continues to grow from there in 2014. adam: i will ask the question that begs to be asked on a day where the dow is down. why are people selling?
1:05 pm
>> it is mainly on concerns about china. we are starting to see earnings as a second indicator for the markets. i think that is what the markets are really trading on. yet, you have great earnings. i think as we continue through the earnings season, if we continue to see great numbers like this, you will start to see that. lori: we do want to look at the markets in europe. major averages closing. the country's central bank is expected to raise rates. the turkish -- it has been hit hard. adam: britain's largest bank got a good cage rattling this

1:43 pm
i think the thing that stops proprietary trading. i think it almost had nothing to do with the financial crisis. that was not proprietary trading, banks trading with their own money that was handling customer accounts and underwriting securities and forced to hold it until the market changed which it never did and they were holding all this illiquid debt. that is what caused financial crisis. we got it and it is out there and driving regulators crazy. this thing essentially has been in play now for like a month, they finally finalized it sometime last month? no we're getting just how difficult it toys regulate to put this into practice. what they have now is their final version. what we hear are the problems are not over. this will be a work in progress. therethere will be tweeking this thing along the way. one of the huge issues, a huge hurdle is that you have several agencies from the fed to the sec, to the cftc, overlapping, overlapping regulation among
1:44 pm
these entities which is going to make it difficult to essentially enforce what is and what isn't a proprietary trade and what we're getting from these same regulators when you ask them, is there a possibility they just dump this thing at some point? this part of dodd-frank gets blown out, gets taken out, it is forgotten about and you do get a yes? now i don't think president obama will do it. i do thinka president hillary clinton, i wrote a column about this in the "new york post" get as chance, there is chance she has close ties to wall street. she may whack out the kerr rule. from what i understand they can't figure out the difference between a proprietary trade, me using company money to buy and sell stock or any other security, what is the real difference between that and me using a money to mark a market in a security that benefits a client which is market making which is integral part of capital markets.
1:45 pm
that is necessary part of the capital market? they still don't have a bright line between those two functions and that is really causing the problems here. lori: what is the latest on capital reserve requirements? don't you think if you have enough cash on hand, a way to cover all the bets, proprietary or not you're fine? that is simplistic way of looking at it, but -- >> there are dueling capital requirements. you have basel iii capital requirements. you have capital requirements of dodd-frank. i don't think that is an issue. banks are required to increase their capital tremendously since the financial crisis. this is something else. and i will tell you, what is scary about the volcker rule, proprietary trading did cause losses during the financial crisis. people, firms making bad bets. morgan stanley lost $8 billion on a trade which is pretty big but it did not cause the financial crisis. the financial crisis was caused by years and years of incentives
1:46 pm
to develop security that is helped make housing affordable to anybody or lending so anybody could, so you could, anybody could get a loan. those securities were underwritten by wall street. those securities were packaged by wall street and sold to investors and in late 2006 and 2007, wall street kept packaging those loans and couldn't find buyers. so they kept those loans and those securities on their books until they became illiquid to the point where they had to mark those things down to sear near zero and hence every firm was near zero except for jpmorgan. adam: volcker rule was first discussed to protect taxpayers because we're backstopping banks of fdic. >> right. adam: to protect taxpayers from banks, jeopardizing that guaranty and taking risky bets and got perverted? >> it did. and yes, by the way it is not an absurd thing. if you're going to federally guaranty every bank -- adam: deposits. >> well you're almost
1:47 pm
guarantying every bank now. goldman sachs is considered too big to fail, systematically important, they are bound by these rules. goldman sachs a lot of people talk about goldman sachs to get out of the stroller rule and get back to the old goldman and trade a lot and rescind bank charter. you can't do that. once you're in the roache motel you're there. here is the thing. my view is this, if a firm is bad, they lose money, shareholders suffer, maybe we shouldn't be federally insuring december deposits so they can take risks. even with the customer side, remember the financial crisis was the customer side. it was packaging securities for customers and not making a bet but keep it on the books until they sold them? that is essentially, that happens every day. that is inventory. they had way too much inventory of housing-related bonds. maybe we shouldn't federally subsidize the banks with fdic insurance. or, if you want insurance you have to separate out your securities part from your banking part. adam: going back to 1998.
1:48 pm
>> what is wrong with that? we didn't have a financial crisis then? adam: that will be part two, charlie just said. lori: while you gentlemen were talking, while we were talking, the dow moved higher, up 10 points now. turning positive moments ago. keith bliss of cute tone and company on the floor of the new york stock exchange. lot of action today. state of the union and what is on your radar? >> volatility is creeping back into the market and for us the 20 level on the vix is always an important benchmark level we take a look at and we monitor and we're getting close to that. the bottom line on the markets we had such vast volatility we're vastly oversold on s&p and dow and vastly overbought on the vix level if you call it that, keep an eye on the vix if it moves up to 20. vix tells you implied volatility inside the market the next 30 days. what that implies, neither moving up or down but it will move 5% if we get up to 20.
1:49 pm
that will be awesome trading opportunities in between there. if you're a long investor hang on to enjoy the ride or at least try to. lori: watch vix at level of 20. it is flirting with that level. keith, thank you. >> my pleasure. adam: silicon valley legend tom perkins he made his name investing in the next big thing but now the technology elite, they can't get away from him fast enough because of a letter to the editor perkins wrote and it was published in saturday's "wall street journal" this is a quote from that letter. quote, i would call attention to the parallels of fascist, nazi germany to its war on its 1% namely its jews to the progressive war on the american 1%, namely the rich. even the venture capital firm perkins's company founded, cofounded is trying to distance itself via twitter. the firm, kleiner perkins and caufield says, quote, tom perkins has not been involved in

1:55 pm

tracy: happy monday, i'm tracy byrnes. ashley: i'm ashley webster. as january goes so goes the year is an old saying on wall street and markets are not doing so great this year. the dow though waiverring after closing down four straight sessions. even worse for the emerging markets. we'll have a panel straight ahead how to keep your 401(k) safe and make money amid all the
2:00 pm
turmoil. tracy: plus talk about role reversal? the company that builds iphones in china for apple, wants to build a manufacturing plant back here in the u.s. jo ling kent investigate that is ahead. ashley: file this one under gross. 600 passengers violently ill as a bug causes end an early end to a royal caribbean cruise. would you still book a cruise? tweet us. tracy: my mom is on one as we speak. i know. tech minute, is google trying to corner the market on robots? i thought we were? how tech giant following up the purchase of animal robot creators. ashley: just as creepy every time i see it. a week-long look at super stocks and make money on companies advertising during the super bowl. that and owe so much more ahead on this super hour of "markets now." guess what, the dow is in the green. how about that? get straight to ttese stocks. go down to nicole petallides on
2:01 pm
floor of the new york stock exchange. emerging market fears are continuing to rattling the markets but we're hanging in there. >> there is a lot of focus on emerging markets last week or so, definitely. turkey obviously pulling an emergency meeting there. dow jones industrials back into the green as you noted. now up 14 points. about 150-point swing. started off in the green and moved up to 15,938 and swung into negative territory down into 15,783 but caterpillar helping along. nasdaq down 3/4 of a percent and s&p down .2 of a point. caterpillar came out with quarterly numbers that beat analyst expectations. they gave a good outlook for 2014 and all buyback announcements as well. you put that all together and cost-cutting moves which caterpillar is up almost 4 1/2%
2:02 pm
at 89.92. so that is helping things along. back to you. tracy: nicole, thank you very much. >> thanks. tracy: stocks missed after last week's big selloff with the dow posting slight gains. as actually noted the dow is down 11 points. turbulence is in emerging markets is sparking fear on wall street. can you take advantage of this uncertainty? we have all-star panel. here on set, elizabeth macdonald, charles payne joining us here in new york. we started this conversation last week, you guys. we started talking about the fed tapering. what's going to happen. paul, i will throw this out to you. a lot of people worry if liquidity is pulled out of the mark economy it will affect emerging markets. >> that is a real possibility. as we get better data and especially employment reports in the u.s., question becomes do the lower u.s. bond deals spike higher? that could spark out flow from emerging markets. ashley: not also outflow but
2:03 pm
inflow to the emerging markets. a double-whammy because of what is going on. why should we care? >> we should care we think reality check bounced about emerging markets a long time ago. there was a reach for yield of dreams because savings accounts were microscopic because of fed's low rate policies. we talked about this last week. here is reality check. look how illiquid and small some of these emerging markets own stocks are trading at at publicly-traded firms. ibm equals the size of mexico. colombia, size of merck. turkey equals market cap of starbucks. turkey equals malaysia. goldman sachs is size of all stocks traded in indonesia. that gives you perspective on size of emerging markets we're talking about and pressures they're undergoing as china has contraction and china is largest trading partner for these countries. tracy: chars, are you worried about the multinationals?
2:04 pm
they're out there in these emerging markets? >> i'm not worried yet. emac brought up the china as the lynchpin. we worried about the fed tapering but what contained contagion, china's cpi number. i have to give china some credit. they have had a run away locomotive and put brakes on without this thing collapsing. we talked about engineering the soft landing, compared to their soft landing f theirs is 7 1/2% gdp maybe they did a better job than us. there is no doubt about it there are growing pangs in all these countries. 1819. 1837. 1873. eight teen 93. 1901. 1907, 1929 all panics and great depression in america. these countries are growing and will go through growing pains and this might be another one. ashley: paul, is this systemic risk here? do we care argentina's cure
2:05 pm
returnsy is getting devalued? or is there a risk like when in thailand and the their currency the about the ot went south and had a big impact on asia? is there any doubt this would have a big impact on global economies and global markets? >> i have some concerns. all it takes is contagion is fear and sentiment factor to really spread. you could end up having markets related that should not have been related in the first place. we saw that in europe a few years ago. look as commentator pointed out you have markets still growing, markets that still have economies that still have a lot of room to move and over time you will see these emerging markets play out with strong gains followed by a reset, a retest of lows and then back up to growth again and i think we'll see those emerging markets return to growth. tracy: lizzie? >> they will return to growth so long as middle class is growing countries. as charles points out i'm not sure about contagion.
2:06 pm
i think you see contagion spreading from junk bond to junk bond, corporate bond to corporate bond. we saw that last year. greece is still an emerging market in the eurozone. it didn't spread to other areas of the eurozone. i'm not so sure if one goes under it will drag the others down but that is a great point to be watchful and mindful. tracy: that is great point about greece. we thought it would spread. ashley: it is marriage falcon my. >> we worried about portugal and spain and still are but yields have come down a lot. when you talk about the thai-bot contagion. i studied that and mexican peso neither one had foreign reserves. it made it play out quickly and both needed intervenges. will we have free fall scenario that the imf steps in or the u.s. treasury steps in? no, i don't think so. there is geopolitical story attached to everyone of these countries rate now.
2:07 pm
i don't think they can take the risk. >> that is good point. >> how do you play this? is there a play. >> sometimes i think the move of "cool hand luke." sometimes nothing is a real cool hand. you have to chill out i think. listen, unreasonable expectations, we had an amazing last year. we had an amazing five-year run. these kind of things i think kind of happen. tracy: paul, can i throw this question out to you? what if any of the emerging markets you like? >> we like markets that tend to have trade surpluses. these countries don't rely as much on foreign inflows of capital. taiwan and malaysia have done very well. these may be small markets. if you think of those as supplements over a more broad emerging markets exposure. play a long-term growth trend. malaysia or polandu had on a incase downside is wrong we get
2:08 pm
growth. those are countries that will help you beat that broadly diversified benchmark over short periods of time. that is how you outperform your core position. >> the question is also, janet yellen effect. will she just say, you know what? enough is enough, we'll continue to taper or as ed yardeni point out, circular and peter boockvar. they talk about the tremors the fed will create and rock some of the markets will she say then, you know what? the bottom line we're learning that qe is global. money printing is global and have global effect and give markets what they want. >> if the fed backs off now early into taper, they have little credibility with a lot he have people, it would be shocking. bring it down to five billion a year. >> they have no course but to stay the course. ashley: i know the fed has a big impact. they're concerned about our economy. they're not concerned about the other economies around the world. they knew it was coming. they had plenty of time to prepare but anyway. tracy: good stuff you guys. paul christopher, charles payne, lizzie mack.
2:09 pm
we have to do this again. thank you all. ashley: thank you, guys. coming up next the latest on royal caribbean shares after 600 passengers become violently ill on one of its ships. plus your tweets, would you still book a cruise? tracy: from ships to planes. some of the world's most elaborate private jets heading for the super bowl here in new york. we have a man whose company has plenty to gain from all that. ashley: in tech minute, michael's stores, the latest to suffer from credit card hacks. is it time to increase card security? tracy: or stop doing crafts? as we do every day this time of day look how oil is trading. down about 85 cents. $95.76 a barrel. we'll be right back.

2:12 pm
...or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines. tell your doctors about all medicines you take. pradaxa side effects include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. if you or someone you ve has afib not caused by a heart valve problem... ...ask your doctor about reducing the risk of stroke with pradaxa. tracy: talk about a sea of change. taiwan's foxconn, the major supplier of many apple i-devices considering expanding its factories to the u.s. jo ling kent joins us now with the details. what is with the change of heart? >> it actually interesting. chinese new year false on thursday night of this weak. this is time for companies to
2:13 pm
reevaluate strategies and get employees together and throw the great parties and foxconn is yet another looking at its strategy and turning its gaze to the u.s. and they're thinking about going american. according to "wall street journal" chairman foxconn is considering a plan to build advanced display manufacturing plant as labor costs go up and unrest becomes more of an issue all over asia especially in china. he says u.s. is must-go market and corporate clients were asked by foxconn to break ground here to be closer geographically. looking at apple's stock, it is up about 1 1/4% an interesting development bringing manufacturing back here to the u.s. tracy: they have hhd issues being overseas. where do they want to come to the united states? >> bus in pennsylvania. in november they were looking at sites there, potentially $40 million site in pennsylvania. tracy: that is good for economy.
2:14 pm
price of phones at end of the day. less costs to bring this stuff back in the united states. >> one. things they want to make liquid display, 60-inch much. that is hard to ship across the sea without damaging it. it will save potentially for the consumer. we'll see what is happening. >> jo ling stuff will be all over it. thank you, girl. >> anytime. ashley: 60-inch smartphone, how about that? this is a brutal case of seasickness. 600 passengers violently ill as a bug forces early end to a royal caribbean cruise. so would you still book a cruise? your answers are at the bottom of the screen. meantime royal caribbean releasing earnings before the bell. so let's head down to the floor of the new york stock exchange where nicole petallides has taken her dramamine and keeping an eye on the shares. nicole. >> i get seasick from the markets with the back and forth action. that is what we've seen with the dow and royal caribbean which popped and dropped. now is back up about 2%. it is worth noting that royal
2:15 pm
caribbean came out with profit numbers for the latest quarter that surpassed analyst estimates. they also gave a good outlook for 2014. that helped them along. that is what brought royal caribbean into the green. the problem of course over the last 24 hours is that report that now they have a public relations problem of 600 passengers or there abouts that have incurred some sort of gas throw intestinal issues. so was it a bug? was something not sanitize advertised correctly? the company stands by the cleaning practices. they brought the ship back to shore to release customers did not get vacation they intended. was this a bug or something more? they continue to clean the ships and do their due diligence. meantime this is obviously another thorn in the side of cruise ships industry but carnival. cruise ships still get a bad rap but still plenty of people that love them. ashley: that is very true, nicole. people are devoted to them. tracy: my parents are on one as
