>> here comes the opening bell, we probably won't like what we see when trading day starts. here is larry levin coming from chicago. i'm fit to be tied. i don't get it. i don't get it! >> we were told if the whole world prints up a ton of money we would get inflation. now we're told that the market here is going to go down because of deflation in europe. you want to sort this out for me? >> well, i don't know if i can sort it out exactly, stuart, but i'll say this, the deflation situation is extremely bad. they're looking for 2% inflation and they've got is.08 number there. the not close to what they're expecting or looking for there. the markets have taken a hit because of that. because of the situation with the fed. a whole bunch of stuff, you know, kind of tied together and we're going to be 15 points lower on the s&p, and we've been lower quite bit the last few
days and more downdraft and selling here. stuart: larry, thank you very much indeed. i'm going to turn to liz macdonald. >> joblessness, 12% jobless rate in the euro zone. people are out of work and 10% of the s&p 500 revenue comes from the euro zone, ge, mcdonald's, coca-cola. stuart: we've known for a long time that europe has been a mess, but suddenly? >> the eu was strengthening the past year or so, i'm just saying that these-- the multi-nationals have exclusion to the euro zone. stuart: you sound like my daughter, i'm just saying, dad. we're looking for the dow to drop maybe up to 200 points in the very early going. all right. the down side trend is established. we're down 40 after 30 seconds. look at it, down 53. i just want to hold this for a second and watch this thing go down because you know, now we're down 90. watch it, watch those losses pile up. while you're doing that, let me
turn to a couple of individual stocks, i've got amazon on my mind, yes, it it made less money. it made money, but the point is, it made less than analysts were expecting. >> down 8.6%. 368.19. it was a crucial holiday period and we know amazon sells a ton, however, they're talking about a possible operating loss this quarter as shipping costs decline and even now, to cover the rise of fuel, costs may be considering, now, that $79 prime that everybody signed up for, they may be considering a 20 to $40 increase on that. stuart: okay, so it's down 8%, you don't often see a huge technology stock drop like that. the other side of the coin is google. they have what, strong advertising growth? i guess the stock is up. nicole: going gaga for google. beat the all time record high.
and it's up 2% and they talk about pressure and competition and et cetera, et cetera, but the cheap business offices say the holiday season made one thing very clear, the web has truly become the new holiday store window. stuart: they certainly got that one right. now look the at the big board for a second because the futures did correctly point out a big loss at the opening bell. we're off 170 points. that, by the way, puts the dow at 15,600. 15-6. i remember when we were-- i think we were at or close to 16-6 not that long ago. we're down about a thousand points, roughly speaking. and veteran microsoft executive satya nadella to replace. and i own microsoft. yahoo! said in a blog post.
yahoo! mail the target of a cyber attack, trying to log in with stolen passwords and they reset the passwords for those people. and the stock of the morning thus far. michael robertson is here from san francisco and so is liz. i'm calling this the apple effect. the analysts don't have their expectations met and the stock gets killed. what do you think of amazon at, say, 350 a share? >> can iitake out a second mortgage on my home to buy more? that's a great price for amazon. it's an excellent company. stuart, you hit the nail on the head. i'm not sure that wall street's expectations were in alignment with realiiy. a little bit of a tough quarter with a shipping problem, with ups at the end. what no one is talking about, they had a 53% increase in the
division that includes cloud sales to more than 1.2 billion dollars, which is enormous and that's a very high margin business. overall, i think it's a pretty good report. stuart: okay, i want to ask you about apple because i know you've still got $1,000 target. i'll get to that in a second and let me deal with microsoft for a moment. they're looking at an insider for the top spot. you say that's a bad idea? >> i do, it's very, very difficult. he when i was a young analyst in detroit i was lucky enough to sit at the same dinner table with lee iacocca and asked him a lot of questions, he'd cleaned house at chrysler. what he said was, it's very difficult for someone on the inside to come in and turn around a company. microsoft has great margins and generate a lot of cash, but they've lost the leadership edge in a lot of areas and i see it very difficult for somebody who's been in that environment for more than 20 years to really change the direction. the other thing, stuart,s this signals to me, they can't find
ten seconds to bring us up-to-date on your target of $1,000 a share for apple. is that still your call? >> t. i haven't changed it. i want to see what happened with the 5 c in the current quarter, but right now don't see a reason to change it, stuart. stuart: and break away for some stocks. wal-mart, look at that, cuts its outlook. how bad is the stock performing? . nicole: it's big deal. right now the stock is down 1%, but wal-mart, obviously, a huge company and they are cutting their full year numbers, lowering the low end of the forecast, and these are the costs of being a global company. they're saying that they had to chose about 50 stores in brazil and china and they also had some fees with franchises and supply agreements and right here at home, sam's club restructuring in the united states and overall they're cutting their numbers and the stock is reflecting that. stuart: we've got that.
we're going to leave this now and down almost 200 points and the future's got it right this morning. 15-6 is where we are. turn to the broader economy and bring in michelle gerard from stanford. michelle, what's this about deflation in europe sending our stock market down? i don't get the connection. and frankly, i'm tired of those people over there hurting us over here. now, smile, you always do, go. . [laughter] you know, stuart, i have to say there's been a lot of concern about disinflation in the yir zoyir-- euro zone for a while and it keeps spilling back to the u.s. because we've actually seen inflation move a bit lower this year and so people think that we may suffer the same kind of target to inflation that's so much concern in europe. i have to say we have pushed back on that, not that we've been having inflation going so much higher here, but the situation is very different.
here in the u.s., specifically we have things going on. particularly like in the medical care area. where we've actually seen surprisingly low numbers and some of that's tied to like the sequester and reimbursement and so many different things. but the bottom line is that we actually, having dug very deeply into it, don't think a lot of the trends will continue. so i guess the point is we're not worried here about disinflation, deflation, and i just, i think that some of that concern that does spill over is not warranted. stuart: okay. i'm just surprised because i've been told for a couple of years now, when the fed prints up a storm and they have done exactly that, we would get inflation. and so some are talking about deflation. >> stuart, the truth of the matter is, thattis the case. and all of this money printing should lead to higher inflation and faster growth and that's obviously not happening, but i think the thing is, in terms of what kind of inflation? you know, we're so used to
thinking it should be in the imported inflation measures like the price index. but the truth is in recent years when we've seen fed accommodation, even talking the last decade, it hasn't shown up in consumer prices, obviously, that liquidity has found its way into assets, whether it's stocks or housing and so some of the people say, with the fed targeting inflation, that's not where all of this accommodation is ultimately going to show itself. stuart: okay. >> when you have disinflation, conditions can't make earnings off higher prices. we have 4 trillion in extra money printing from ecb, bank of england and bank of japan and the federal reserve. when they get off the federal bank dialysis machine you see who is papered offer by money printing. >> don't forget we have a weak, still relatively soft overseas demand environment. it's hard for companies to raise
prices without the economy doing well. stuart: we're feeling it. look at this, now we're down 207 precisely, 15, 639. the vice-president of the nfl, why football is the financial king of the united states sports. and it is, you know.

we're told there are problems with deflation in europe and might wash over here. if prices are stable or going down, corporations cannot make that much more money, therefore, our stock market goes down. did i get that right? >> i think you did. i think-- >> an explanation? >> these are the stocks, 28 are down in the red and two are up. i can't squint enough to see which ones. >> me either, it looks like microsoft and caterpillar. stuart: got it the only two winners on the dow. when-- the dow is down 200, what happens to the price of gold? let's have a look, shall we? the price of gold is up $10, 1252. all right. two days to the big game. about a third of the country will be watching the super bowl on fox, by the way. eric is back, the executive vice-president of the nfl and i'm calling the nfl the financial king of american sport. i guess this is congratulations, eric? >> oh, this is-- there's no way i did this.
no way this is congratulations. stuart: and i've lived in america for 40 years, i've seen all of these super bowls all the way back to 1972. i can't ever remember when any super bowl dominated the scene quite like this one has and football itself has dominated sports the way football does today. stuart: well, we're in new york and so it's in new jersey, new york area, so it feels like that, but also, the super bowl gets bigger every year. >> there's more going on. there's something more to it than that. the american public loves football. increasingly they love it and i think it's because they like controlled violence, a controlled warfare with a set of rules and they-- we love it. >> i agree with part of it, which is a set of rules. i agree with the little part of, i don't call it controlled violence, we don't look at it as controlled violence. but there's certainly no doubt that these athletes are super
human and they are incredibly focused. it's incredibly hard to get where they are and then the whole thing comes together and in a way that is straegized to the end of the earth. stuart: yeah. >> and then choreographed from the standpoint of their athleticism, each of them working together. it's just a marvel. whether you skateboarded or played a team sport, for all of that to come together, it is incredible. stuart: you're doing well. congratulations. >> it's not me. stuart: wait a second. >> it's not over. stuart: there are moves afoot, as they say, to make football safer, to make the hits less crunching. if you do that, and it's perceived as a slightly softer game, can you still stay at the pinnacle? >> well, it remains to be seen we stay at the pinnacle. stuart: you have to say yes. >> national football league for over 70 years has been making
the game safer, making the game better. those two things go hand in hand. anyone who says that football today is not as tough as what it was 20, 30, 40 years ago simply doesn't to what they're talking about and hasn't been on the field of today. stuart: can you prove that statistic? >> i can prove it with a picture of my father in the office playing in the 40's in a leather helmet. we didn't change the helmet to make the game more violent, the helmet it wasn't changed, the pads weren't changed, the cleats weren't changed to make it more violent, it was made -- those changes were made over decades and continue to be made. stuart: take your paint, but there are people who follow rugby, where there's no padding, no helmets, none of the protection for the players, the hits are pretty strong, but you don't have the same level of injury in rugby, even though you don't have the padding and therr are those people who say, the therefore take away the padding
and the helmets and maybe you'll actually make football safer. >> well, stuart, i've played both sports. stuart: you did, you played rugby? >> yes, my sons play both sports, rugby is a wonderful sport. i don't have the statistics about rugby's injuries, i know there are probably quite number of them. rugby is talking to the national football league about our protocols and asking how our protocols could be applied to rugby. they would not do that if they didn't think that we were onto something. stuart: fair point. eric, i'm afraid i'm out of time and i know you're busy because it's super bowl week. >> you're aware of the nfl cuff links you've had for a couple of years? >> i'm not allowed to wear gifts. >> even with our network, fox? >> eric, i want to say congratulations, because i can't remember a super bowl that's dominated the scene quite like this one has and i think you've had a lot to do with its making. charles: please pass it on to the staff and the clubs. stuart: you're the executive vice-president of the nfl.
>> i'm one of them. a lot of people have worked for decades. stuart: isn't there only one executive? >> no, no a number of them, we can replace me anytime. stuart: they won't. good to see you, sir. thanks. check the big board again, please. now we're down a mere 191 points. i'm not being sarcastic, i'm saying we were down over 220 and now it's 191 to the down side. and this is the last day of january and we're on the way to the dow's worst performing month since february of 2009. all right? we've got more on that after this.
>> here is a big name, you know it, holiday maker disappointing for mattel. down it goes 10%. do people buy toys or electronics for the kids? good question. check the share price of chipotle. hitting a new high. charles payne will take a victory lap on that in a few minutes. and my take, next hour, the real victims of obamacare are real people, cancer patients, tragic stories, real people, that's the point, they're the victims. my take 10:25. now this. today at the white house, president obama is going to meet some of the top ceo's who have pledged not to discriminate
against the long-term unemployed when hiring. all right, liz. that's a bridge not too discriminate. it's not a place to get out and hire them. there's a difference. >> there's a difference. you're talking, wal-mart, apple ford, visa, at&t, j.p. morgan chase. what's happening, there are three times the number of long-term unemployed right now than pre-recession level. out of work six months or longer, it's a promise, it's nonbinding, to not discriminate against the long-term unemployed and we've seen the summit in 2012, the white house ceo summit. it puts the companies in an awkward position basically questioning whether they did have bias in the past, it's awkward. >> it's actionable. check the big board again, that's the story of the day, we're down and told that there's fears of deflation in europe and that's sending our markets lower and i don't believe it's all
that, but we're down 181. new at 10:00, 43 obamacare navigators in california are convicted felons and they're one click away from stealing your information. we have reporters who broke the story top of the hour. yes, it's super bowl weekend, biggest sporting event in the country, possibly the world. we asked one nfl star, why is he risking his health for a big paycheck? because he's getting a big paycheck of course. all that is next. ♪ football is coming on tonight ♪ ♪ are you ready, are you ready ♪ ♪ are you really, ready? are you ready for some football ♪
>> what we-- weren'tway told that a the print of money would lead to inflation? our stocks are tumbling and we have a lot of of opinion and you'll get a lot today. look at this, in california 43 obamacare navigators have criminal records, some convicted of financial crimes. how do you feel about that? we have a climate change guy who says it's our fault and we should pay. how do you feel about that? >> we'll bring in the europeans what do they know about football and who are they betting on for the super bowl? we're not done. wait until you find out what the epa is going to do without invention from congress.
one more, brendan oiken, a rookie starting out. how does he feel about concussion? monica is here and charles is here. you've got to see our second hour. hour. >> oh, it's friday morning and look at that, down 195 points, charles payne is here, you've got a simple explanation? >> oh, no. stuart: well, you've got a limited amount of time, get on with it. charles: i'll go with that. overnight we had the inflation numbers and we should say disinflation numbers out of europe. a lot of people worry about fed printing money and it's the worst thing that could happen to an economy is deflation. it wasn't inflation, it's deflation, businesses don't hire, people don't spend.
it goes around and around. stuart: explain why our stock market in the united states of america is down so much, almost at 200 points because they've got maybe a hint of deflation? >> here is the irony of it all. we started the week with inflation and currency crisis in emerging markets and now we end the week with deflation and the old school european countries and these are our trading partners, these are people we do business with. i'll tell you something that's interesting that's masked by all of this. very, very good news, or numbers overall for america, from earnings and from the numbers themselves. america may be the bright spot in 2014far. stuart: all right, well, hold that thought, charles, because that's a bright spot and we like that. yeah, another bright spot for you, we've got solid numbers from the telecom equipment maker jds uniphase. where is the stock? >> up 7% today. it's up at 13.62 and they moved and announced acquisition of two
companies, so we're seeing jbs jumping. stuart: nicole, let me tell you something, about 20 years ago, maybe 15 years ago, i remember jds uniphase, before you were even born, i remember jds uniphase was worth more than general motors and ford combined. do you remember those days. nicole: wow. stuart: that was about 1997, 1998, somewhere around there. it fell a long way, but now it's up 7%. nicole, a history lesson to you youngsters. thank you very much. the exercise celebrity richard simmons making the rounds in a new obamacare outreach video. this one, taxpayers spent 1.3 million on it despite california's big dollar budget shortfall. monica crowley is here. can't wait to hear what you're going to say about richard simmons. >> you have seen this video, actually they did a six hour live stream two weeks ago and
turned it into the shorter version of this video. my big regret, i cannot see this, my eyes, my eyes! >> the fact that the taxpayers had to fork out $1.3 million on this kind of absurdity to sell obamacare, if the white house is correct and obamacare is this great new policy going to bring in young people which is the folks they're trying to reach with this, then it should be able to stand on its own and attract people without these kinds of gimmicks funded by the taxpayer. stuart: do you think it will work, do you think people will sign up? >> no, they're trying to reach young people, i'm not sure that richard simmons is the right character to do that. stuart: got another item from california for you. democrat congressman henry waxman is retiring after 20 terms in the house. that will be 40 years. first to you, charles, what do you make of that? >> 40 years is way too long. it's ridiculous. you know. stuart: he led the charge for obamacare. charles: a lot of the architects of obamacare are fading away. max baucus, waxman and a couple
of others, but it goes to show you, this is not a career job. if people need to go there, do their time, but to stay in there 40 years is just, i think it's an embarrassment. >> and as recently as a month ago henry waxman was saying i'm in, and running for reelection n2012 he nearly lost that. california's 33rd congressman district, very left wing and almost lost last time. they're looking at the writing on the wall and looking at obama's poll numbers and poll numbers of obamacare, all of which are sliding fast. this is the 11th democrat to say he or she is not running for rehe election, they see the writing on the wall and they're out. stuart: they're dreaming, the day comes that henry waxman, they represents beverly hills, they elect a republican, or right of center.
>> this is a changed election. stuart: how is this for obamacare headline, at least 43 convicted criminals are working as navigators in california and three of them have records of significant financial crimes. here is jillian, you dug into it and broke the story. >> thank you. stuart: i have to ask, how did you find out that 43 people have criminal records. >> i sent a record request to california and several other states that operated their own exchanges. and california wouldn't release a lot of records i asked for. the statistics showed 43 convicted criminals were approved to work as obamacare navigators. stuart: so they knew. >> they knew. stuart: they knew that they had criminal backgrounds? >> and their defense is dodgy, if you will. they say it's important that former criminals have a chance to work in a legitimate economy. kind of sympathetic to that, but
the reason they wouldn't disclose some of the records to me is that they said, you've got to follow this train of logic, a bit skewed, i guess, that enrollment is in the public interest. disclosing these records might deter enrollment so disclosing the records is not in the public interest. stuart: that's incredible. he they knew they were exposing potential signees to risk of identity theft, but it's in the public interest to sign up so that public interest overrides the interest of the public to know the truth about the navigators? >> exactly. stuart: and i think that's-- >> listen, they knew-- when they craft this had whole thing they knew who the navigators would be, people who did things like whether former acorn or planned parenthood. people who were firmly in that corner. i don't think we're paying enough attention what's going on with respect to the democrats working to make felons, felons able it to vote from prison. the idea of taking away the sort
of shame of being a convicted felon is being worked on all the time so i don't think they see anything wrong with this, stuart. stuart: i take your point, but jillian, i mean, what are they going to do now? you've expose this hd this. other than asking why you did this, what response have you got? >> california republicans are pushing to hold a hearing on this. it's significant, a lot of states, 31 don't hold back whatsoever for navigators. california does, and it's the background check, here you've got people with repeat convictions of forgery, burglary and welfare fraud. it puts civilians at risk. >> and kathleen sebelius, remember a couple of months ago in front of congress she was asked point blank, is it possible to have convicted felons part of the navigator system or elsewhere in obamacare and she said, yes, i guess it's
possible because there's no prohibition of it in the federal law so she says states might have their own rules who they're going to hire and so forth and oversee this, but in the federal system in terms of the law itself at the federal level there's no prohibition. stuart: what are you going to do next? >> i'm working on getting records requests from a lot of state to figure out if there are more criminal navigators. we're suing in nevada, they didn't want to give it to me and hung up the phone on me. stuart: come back when you have answers. >> i will. stuart: look at the big board. it's friday morning, we're down sharply, down 177. we were down over 200. i guess you can say this is a modest comeback, modest indeed. 15-6 is where we are. we've got a new poll that 40% of us would steer our children away from playing football. and this is in the midst of a controversy whether the nfl is doing enough to prevent concussion. we have brandon boiken with the
philadelphia eagles and you're in your second year of playing. >> correct. stuart: you're a defensive back. >> i am. stuart: just starting out on this great career? >> i feel i'm a veteran now and i like to think i'm not just a rookie. stuart: you've never been interviewed by an englishman before and you have to explain stuff. you're a defensive back. >> yes. stuart: you're the guy who runs pell mel down the field and tries to intercept and beat up the running back trying to catch the ball, is that right? >> pretty much. stuart: so you hit real hard, don't you? >> i like to think so even though i'm 5-9 the same. stuart: i'm 5-8 1/2,,160 pounds. what about you. >> pretty much the same. stuart: okay. but you do a lot of hitting. and you get hit. so, how do you feel about starting out on a career which is going to pay you very well, of course. yes, it is, but you're taking great risk. how do you feel? >> i think that's the risk that you take, you know, whether you're at the youth level or the elite level of football, you know, everybody knows that the
-- the risks of playing the sport and when you have a physical sport like football it's going to happen. i mean, so, in my opinion i feel like, i mean, it's inevitable. it's going to happen and you're going to get injured and you're going to make a lot of money, but at the same time-- >> you take the risk? >> two parts on that, i loved-- i played football growing up. and my son never liked it. my son, goy the him to play and he got a concussion in practice and i can't tell you how guilty i felt. it's a great risk if you're going to get paid for it and your kids aren't going to get paid for it as a consequence fewer are playing. and i want your opinion on that. and the nfl is making the game safer, but maybe not as fun to watch. >> when you're talking about the youth level, the contact with children still developing mentally and their bodies, that's not really safe. for me specifically i would like my kids maybe to play flag football or something like that until they turn into middle
school or teenage years, but you know, the nfl like you said, are implementing a lot more rules for it to be safer. charles: that hurts your position. pretty soon you might have to play flag football as a quarterback. >> every time you touch the quarterback, a penalty or a fine, but it's prolonging your career. stuart: may i express an opinion on football which is unusual for a guy with a voice like this. i don't think that the nfl will ever make it is such a safe sport, such a nonviolent sport that it takes the audience away, they'll never go that far, will they? >> i agree, everybody is going to watch football no matter what. stuart: but only if there's controlled violence. if it's like warfare with rules. >> you're right. stuart: and they'll only watch you if you're a gladiator and that's what you are. >> yeah, every sunday you're a gladiator. as long as they're keeping everybody safe, i think the injuries and concussions, things like i said are going to happen, but for the most part people's careers are prolonged.
stuart: have you ever played for the broncos or the seahawks? >> video game-wise. stuart: you have no stake in the action, so you can tell me honestly who is going to win. >> i've got a couple of friends that play for denver we went to college together university of georgia. stuart: you're supporting the broncos. you're pulling for them. >> i think the broncos will win. stuart: i'm told the over-under is 47 1/2, i would play the over, am i going to be right? >> i don't do the betting stuff. >> good answer. >> you can't do that, so denver all the way. stuart: young man, air going to make a lot of money and do well. great to have you with us, congratulations, thanks for joining us. and need to hail a cab? there's an app for that. in fact, there are a bunch of apps for that. and they're also huge liabilities, calling the lawyers. we'll explain it all next. the dow is down 176. elcome back. how is everything?

oh, i don't know about that. we're going to make some money. first of all, he's looking at the manitowoc company and i've seen it before. charles: we've had it on the show four times, including january 8th reported after the bell. i told you earlier a lot of of good stuff coming out about america, their crane business is still off, but they got into food servicing the last few years and talking about for restaurants, the big kitchenens. stuart: industrial strength. charles: revenues were up 10% and guess where most of the demand is coming from? >> china. charles: north america, north america, it's amazing. we're still in the the stock and haven't asked anyone to take profits and i know a lot of varney viewer have and wanted to follow up. stuart: follow-up on chipotle. charles: a new high. stuart: huge. charles: we compared this to mcdonald's. stuart: yes, we did. charles: we talk about
technology all the time because it's disruptive and innovative. we have disruption and innovation in every part of our life, they have been around. and the same-store sales are up 9%, it's not cheap, but they make a product people want. stuart: not cheap. charles: again, it's phenomenal stuff and phenomenal news and what we're seeing this earnings period is not necessarily bad news, bad earnings, good earnings. companies that operate well like chipotle rewarded and the quasi parent, mcdonald's is not being rewarded. stuart: uba is facing a lawsuit after a 6-year-old girl was hit by a uba driver. the lawsuit states the u.s. of the on-line app goes against the california's distracted driver's law.
and joining us, joseph. welcome to the program. how your app, how ride scout works. as i understand it it, i get your app on my smart phone here and saying i'm going from here there to and your app tells me which is the best net-based taxi service to get me from here to there. that's what you do, i think? >> good morning, thanks for having me. what we do in part. it's larger than that. what we do with the scout, linking riders and drivers together, there's so much excess capacity out there. if every american sat in a seat on a bus, taxi, train or their own car, that would leave over a billion empty seats out there. so we're creating a marketplace to link rider and driver and what our app does, as you say going from point a to point b. we show not only your taxi or limo options, your walking
shall, your biking, public transit, ride share all in one platform. stuart: have you got around the liability problem? because if i go on your ride scout app, if i do that and i'm involved in some kind of incident, and i'm injured, having taken advice from your app, don't you have a share of the liability for my injury? >> no, i don't think we have a share of your liability any different than would say the yellow pages have, if you were to call the plumber and they were to break something in the house. we have set the company up in the beginning to remind folks as we aggregate your option, we're bringing a technology platform to see your options. out there organizing by mode, by time and by cost and allowing you to choose. no different than kayak or travelocity. if you have a bad experience with the airline, they lose one of your bags, you don't take it
up with kayak or travelocity, you take it up with the individual carrier and makes ride scout so very different from the different emerging platforms you see on your phone. we aggregate them better to improve the quality of your life and your options. stuart: look, i think you've recognizance revolutionized the options. i don't think that taxi, the word is relevant. you've revolutionized it. how much growth? can you give me a number? >> we started in november in washington d.c., 24 hours a day, seven days a week in washington d.c., any of your viewers can download in the iphone store and see what that experience is like, that gives you three to four options whether you want to walk, bike, drive yourself or have someone drive you and the growth that we've experienced since november 20th is very positive giving us every indication we're going to move quickly into san francisco, boston, chicago, to take it where we're headed next.
stuart: joseph, ride scout. very interesting, appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. stuart: the dow is down 189 points, hoovering around 15,600, it's a down friday morning. my take on the real victims of obamacare, real people next.

>> all right. got to keep you up-to-date on the market selloff this friday morning. we're down 206 right now and we're told that deflation in europe makes it hard to make a profit if you're an american corporation doing business there. down we go, too. income inequality and climate change directly related? what? at 10:35 a guest says, yes, they're connected and it's our fault. amazon prime, get a whole lot of stuff for $80 a year and now they want to jack up the price, i say people will pay it. we'll explain it all 10:45. now picture this, a young woman has breast cancer, she has received treatment and the insurance company paid for it. she was covered. along comes obamacare and she no longer has access to her doctors. she want today keep them, she can't. she goes on tv and appeals to the president, so far no
response. here is my take. that's a disgrace. she's a victim of obamacare, she's a victim of a broken promise and she is not alone. gloria cantor in florida. she has five brain tumors, she's been forced into a new insurance plan, much more expensive, she's got to pay. joan, a 60-year-old registered nurse in michigan, a cancer patient for the last six years under obamacare, her plan costs 4 to $6,000 more per year and she's hit with an extra obamacare tax. these victims are from a list compiled by brent mozzel and published on fox news.com. these are real people and their suffering is multiplied millions of times over. the president likes to talk about groups of people he says will be helped by obamacare, collectively he says we will be better off. i disagree, there are far too many individuals who are being
hurt and hurt badly. all the hopeful of expectations have been buried. for most of us health care costs more whether for premiums for the deductibles. for millions you cannot keep your plan, period. you cannot keep your doctor, period. we were deceived and middle america is the victim. the pushback has already started and rightly so. i've seen tv ads where obamacare's victims look into the camera and tell their story. good, keep it up. i'm tired of being told that to create this wonderful omelette we must break a few eggs. those eggs are real people. come on, speak up. don't let the collectivists forget about the individuals they are indeed hurting badly.

out a dramatic heist in new york city, the five croats walked in, smashed display cases, made off with 16 luxury watches worth $7,000. police are reviewing security takes to attract and down. we know you have an expensive watch. where were you yesterday afternoon. charles: i don't know if i have an alibi. i was in my office. i was going to go on sean
hannity and they canceled me and the last minute. my whereabouts are unknown. stuart: you got a $10,000 watch. charles: a different watch. stuart: what would you do with $10,000? one gentleman named otis said i wouldn't buy a watch the. we got 500 respondents to that so now you know. a super bowl stock for you is up big on of very down day. charles likes this one. he has recommended. buffalo wild swings. this is a super bowl play. charles: you go back and look at every january, you could buy it in january of 2008, you could have bought it january of 2012 at 66, last year january, $75 a share. certainly has been a good time to buy the stock before the super bowl over the last few years. pretty interesting. stuart: fascinating, it really is. i have got to move on to a very
controversial point of view, quote, income inequality and climate change are actually very directly linked. that is the quote. the man behind the quote is aaron kramer, president and ceo of spas -- social responsibility. make the connection for me. income inequality and climate change. go. >> it is action leah common sense. if you think about the terrible drought that hit the united states midwest in 2012 which by all accounts not as much as 1% off of the country's gdp, that is something that hits lower income people higher because when food prices go up people at
the low end pay more of their income. these drought which are attributable to climate change hit people that can afford it the least. stuart: the implicit premise of your argument is that that drop was caused by global warming climate change. that is the premise on which you are operating and i don't think that connection has been firmly established. >> no one can say any single event is caused by climate change but all the science shows that events like that become more frequent and more intense and the data shows that. stuart: when you can't lose. you just can't lose. what about the dust bowl of the 1930s? was that the result of climate change? >> there is a difference between climate and weather. whether happened on a given day, climate is what happens over period of time. when you have the data that show the ten warmest years on record in human history have all come
since 1998 a broad trend is very clear and we clearly are living in a climate that is becoming warmer and more unstable and given that -- all the big insurance companies and reinsurance companies believe this is the case. charles: of course because they can raise their rates. i am charles payne. i want to weigh in. i read somewhere that january was the coldest month in the history of our country. are we talking about man-made climate change or just a cyclical event that has happened and whether or climate since the beginning of time? >> the science is clear. 90% of scientists who study this make clear that the climate is warming and human activity is the primary cause of that. before you think higher taxes and more regulations will reverse that?
>> i think smart investments and lower cotton economy, reducing waste, we waste 1-third of the energy, 1-third of the food, 1-third of the water that is generated in the united states, that is good economics, that will put us on a more stable and secure footing for growth and will help us reduce the risk we face from climate change, manage it and enable us to adapt to it because it is already happening and that is simply good economics. it will create certainty. this is why dozens and dozens of companies are putting a price on carbon in their internal investments. we saw a story on this including the largest energy companies in the world, companies like coca-cola and nike which were quoted last week in the new york times talking about why they are putting climate change in their business strategy. it is not an environmental strategy. it is business strategy. there is access to natural resources that we need. let's face it. over the last 20 years, 663
million people around the world, one tenth of humanity have moved out of poverty. if we are going to continue to see that kind of economic development which is not only good for people but good for business because that means more middle-class people who can participate in the global economy we have got to think wisely about how to address climate change. stuart: i hear you. i hear you. i hear you. 600 million people who moved up to the middle class, that is largely china and india, largely. and they are not exactly greenie economies. are they? i am sorry i am out of time. it is a very big subject but we are listening to you and you got a point and we appreciate you being with us today but it is such a huge subject, very hard to get to grips with it. very hard to get on with it. thank you for joining us, we do appreciate it. i am sorry about that.
i just haveard time with this whole global warming argument as presented to us as if we can do something about it whether it exists or not. charles: i thought his solutions were all little bit more reasonable than some of the things i heard from let's highjack the american economy and take our redistribution policies global. save water, turn your lights off. stuart: they are so down on fossil fuels. you can't go fracking, can't go get natural gas. >> one of the things he said and laughed always is this repeatedly that the science is settle. the science is far from settled and we have seen a number of scandals out of the u.n.. charles: should have known -- sandra: when you go to the origins of this even pre al gore support for climate change you understand this is a global wealth redistribution scheme and he was pointing to exactly that
talking about income inequality. stuart: bad news for amazon prime subscribers. the thrust of your annual subscription might be going up, way up but i still think it is upgrade service and a pretty good price even if they do put it up. we will deal with it next. my dad has aor afib.brillation, he has the most common . ...it's not caused by a heart valve problem. dad, it says your afib puts you at 5 times greater risk of a stroke. that's why i take my warfarin every day. but it looks like maybe we suld ask your doctor about pradaxa. in a clinical trial, pradaxa® (dabigaan etexilate mesylate)...
...was proven superior to warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke. and unlike warfarin, with no regular blood tests or dietary restrictions. hey thanks for calling my doctor. sure. pradaxa is not for people with artificial heart valves. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke. ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before surgery or a medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, sometimes fatal, bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding or have had a heart valve replaced. seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have a bleeding condition or stomach ulcer, take aspirin, nsaids, or blood thinners... ...or if you have kidney problems, especially if you take certain medicines. te your doctors about all medicines you take. pradaxa side effec include indigestion, stomach pain, upset, or burning. if you or someone you love has afib not caused by heart valve problem... ...ask your doctor about reducing the risk of stroke with pradaxa.

fee of $79, raising that $20 to $40, economic malaise in europe and asia. that part of it is up. stuart: thanks. i want more on this, amazon's prime service. some call it the best deal on the internet, $79 a year you get unlimited access to their online video streaming catalog, free shipping of most products, there are reports that amazon will raise the price maybe by $20 or even $40 per year. do you think if they move it from $79 a year to $129 a year >> i don't think it would kill it. a more reasonable increase would be $99 a year. they -- stuart: wouldn't want to cross the $100 threshold. >> that is a big deal for people but that is the really good value, free shipping, streaming
services for $100 a year. stuart: streaming service compete well with netflix. >> netflix obviously paying a single flat fee just for that but with prime you're getting those deals, shipping and streaming and all other perks. stuart: they never say how many people signed up for prime. >> they are a little hazy about the way their numbers work but it is quite a bit. it is a huge number and a big moneymaker and it is smart because you are getting people to be dedicated customers to amazon. stuart: i would like to know how many subscribers they have got, how many -- >> what does that work out to? stuart: rumors that microsoft is going to put what is his name? satya nadela. it might make this ceo in place of steve ballmer. what do you know about him and is it a good idea to get an
insider? >> he has a veteran been there for ages, people really like him. i am worried about the insider coming in. my stock needs a big >> for them to start making moves on the computer side. obviously they had a good hold on business infrastructure. but by bringing and incited to the top spot they are in essentially saying we are not going to make major changes to what we have been doing and that is what they need. stuart: stock opened on the upside and has moved to the downside. they are listening to you. 25 years ago i bought the early nintendo. mario. >> did you beat it? stuart: it was my son. >> some day. stuart: 45 years later is nintendo having a rough time? >> they are having a tough time and that is people moving to all digital, buying games on their phones or going to more powerful consul's from sony and microsoft.
they need to make moves and weathered that is putting software on other platforms beyond their own they need something because the latest council was a big flop and continues to make a lot of money. stuart: they need to write games that can be played on the x box or play station. >> or your iphone. stuart: they are not doing that now. >> the problem is even if they did do that they are not going to have as a huge profit margins as they have with their own hardware so it is a sticky point. i don't think they will reach the peak they hit with the we. stuart: when you remember nintendo. sandra: of course. i spent many hours playing nintendo. stuart: way back then in the early 1980s nintendo was worth more than ibm and a couple other big names combine to. they were worth i don't know how many billions. they had their glory days. you don't think they can never return. >> a few years ago they had a
stretch with the wheat consul and i don't think they will head that he could and unless they make huge changes to their business model. stuart: were you born when mario appeared? >> i was. they la want to say when i was born? i was born then. stuart: you must have been very young. >> the first video game i ever played. stuart: does anyone remember pond? >> i was on board for that. stuart: where is that when you really need it. used to play it in the journalists club in hong kong. i won't say what stake i was. thank you very much indeed. europeans betting big money on the superbowl. we have one of europe's top 40s on next, he explains the strange events, wait till you see it. ♪

>> the big thing is an absolutely massive deal over here so even bigger over there. sherman is notorious for being outspoken, we have all seen his interviews, once he finished football he has a future in the w.w. 8. we invite him to curse during the post-game interview. would be very glad to hear we expect him to be a himself. he will hold his tongue and not curse. stuart: tell me the odds. i know you are taking bets on the color of the gatorade that will be dumped on the winning coach. >> this thing i suppose for it to be clear and orange, we can't separate those two but one thing i can tell you is pointers are very much, customers are very much in favor of it being orange
based, it has taken 90% of our money at the moment so they expect gatorade to be brought stuart: what is the betting on the number of times peyton manning says omaha? >> another interesting thing, something not wasn't aware of, the great thing about the super bowl, it attracts a layman like myself which is why we have beds like this. over 32.5 and under 32.5, i do know i am aware of the city of omaha will donate money every time they don't say it so some charity will benefit. stuart: not got much time left. this is a test for you. what is your running back doing? >> running back is the fast guard his course the touchdown. and my right or wrong? stuart: you are right. what is a defensive back? >> but the defensive back is a
