2:01 pm
heritage capital president paul schatz. "the wall street journal"'s simon constable, and new oak president james frischling. what did you think of what you heard out of walmart? what does it tell you about the economy? >> the walmart thing is not new news and the stock really didn't react too poorly. it is more of a small data point. i think walmart is having problems. they're blaming it on health care. it is convenient way. i may not be for obamacare. melissa: you think it is convenient? you don't think that is realistic? headwinds from higher health costs higher than they estimated and people are not shopping. simon what do you think. >> this economy left people behind and people trading downplayses cheaper than walmart. melissa: cheaper than walmart. that is bleak. >> dime store. >> the dime store or whatever it is 99 september store. melissa: that is bleak. what do you think? >> walmart has been in the line of fire being pushed to raise wages. this company's margins are skinny. seven quarters in a row of
2:02 pm
losses. primary consumer lower end of the range is struggling. there is circular argument their own customer can't afford their store. melissa: you're saying they're having troubling numbers are ones getting targeted to raise wages. how can they possible do i that based on what we're seeing here. >> walmart is steadily saturating market. there are saturation of walmart markets already. melissa: that's a good point. pay finds 43% of the americans consider themselves underemployed. at very same time a note from wells fargo find retail sales jobs are in the decline. almost half of america, says you know what? in order to make end meet i need more work. the crummy jobs at bottom, retail jobs, part-time jobs are going away. like bad news on top of worse news. >> disruption. technological disruption happening to a lost industries. happened to the newspaper business, when the web came in. happening here too. amazon's done it in large part. not just amazon, a lot of other companies too.
2:03 pm
melissa: you say that is where retail sales jobs are going, everybody is buying online. so you don't need crummy jobs? you can't find enough work? >> yeah. e-commerce clearly continues to grow. it is creating higher-paying job to focus on trends and data analysis but -- melissa: maybe, but not the same number and not with the same training. >> if you go to retail store you don't want educated specialist salesperson to convince you and help you. i think a lost lower end jobs are being squeezed out. melissa: what do you make of this. >> this is unintended consequences. dot-com bubble was all the rain. this is long-term unintended consequences going online of economy evolving of technology becoming part of our lives 24/7. unfortunately for now. there will be new higher paying jobs but fewer of them. melissa: fewer in number and totally different training. where does it leave people left out of work now? they're not appropriate. >> circular thing. if you go over to the gap there nothing in there. there are very few things on the
2:04 pm
shelves. you can buy a lot more selection on the website. but, if you don't want to buy on website you can't feel fabric it is not there to buy. story. -- sorry. >> this is shorter period of time how manufacturing happened here. over long period of time manufacturing jobs went away and replaced with service jobs. now these are kind of low-end service jobs they're being replaced. something else in the economy will pop up after the next, business cycle. but receipt now, if i'm one of those people i'm not so enthusiastic. melissa: yeah. rockin' robin. shares of burger chain red robin are getting burned reporting second quarter profit and sales missed street expectations. take a look at decline. wow. you don't want to be one of those shareholders today. james, what do you think about this one? talking about lower margins resulting primarily from higher food costs. >> tough segment. food costs one thing. employment costs going up. a lot of litigation in the restaurant space. typically hourly workers are looking for more full-time employment situations.
2:05 pm
i don't say it's a mess. consumer, customer expects more for less and running specialals constantly getting people in the door you're seeing result in margins. >> food costs are typically transitory. over history. this is not a long, long-term problem. melissa: workers daimler getting a break from their email while on vacation. order according to report from the financial times the employees can have incoming emails automatically deleted when on vacation. i love this. taking it one step further. don't take emails, don't take blackberry, but you know when you get back you will get many ha erred first day back from vacation is nightmare. so they're blowing out your in-box. while you're on vacation. do you love that. >> i love this. this is great. melissa: it terrifies me. what am i missing? >> for certain people i would like them all to be deleted all the time. melissa: that is just block sender. show you how to do that after the show. stop by your office. >> this is goes back to before
2:06 pm
you had these in your hand. suddenly orders those, you take two weeks off back-to-back to see if you're cooking books or not, remember that. melissa: i don't remember that. >> politically correct comment. i expect this out headline out of italy and germany. melissa: you think there is connection? you're blaming daimler. >> if they're getting ready for people more relaxed vacations taking their foot off the gas i don't think that is good sign. melissa: i don't think you can blow them out. you can't see them. you have no idea what they meant. >> nobody can rationalize this. this is absolute irrational. come back from avacation, first day back. people know you came back. they will bombard you emails then. worker productivity, it is zero. melissa: i guess. french fried. burger king dropping satisfries less than one year after the low-calorie treats came on scene. there are five fries in there.
2:07 pm
lower calorie fries seemed like good idea. they offered franchisees choice of keeping them or dumping them. vast majority dumped them. >> customer spoken when they go to mcdonald's and burger king. they're not looking for healthy fries. clearly didn't sell. they're cutting it and god bless the choices. melissa: they were good. i don't know. i'm a french fry lover. i'm a junk food love. better than regular fries? melissa: of course not. less calories. >> who goes to burger king for healthy food? melissa: i have kids, go to mcdonald's, looking for anything you possibly get you can have not as bad as all the rest of the crap that is on the menu. >> water. melissa: water, right. >> apple slices. melissa: water and apple slices. i love that. when my kids are having quarter-pounder and cheese, sitting there with apples and water just great. just what we want. lands end in hot water after
2:08 pm

2:09 pm
lands end just sold the list but things are changing. melissa: now parents want to say they want to drop lands end as uniform provider, this is what they're doing with their information. from marketing standpoint for lands end this will cost them more than whatever "gq" paid for the list. >> they sent "gq." not "playboy" or penthouse. melissa: she is naked. she is naked. >> walk doesn't street in manhattan to all the magazine stand and see the exact same thing. i think it's a little different with this. want excised. >> you have to send this in brown paper parcel or have to have dad, dad goes to the post box gets them out. nobody else does. he will be happy. melissa: bad marketing. why would "gq" buy the list from lands end anyway? why do they think that is crossover? >> customer is young. i don't know. melissa: all right. exactly. thanks, guys. sudden change in course, that massive convoy of russian

2:13 pm
melissa: president obama speaking just moments ago on the escalating crisis in iraq saying that the u.s. military has complete their humanitarian mission to protect those iraqis in need. >> the situation on the mountain has greatly improved and americans should be very proud of our efforts. pause the skill and professionalism of our military and the generosity of our people we broke the isil siege of mount sinjar, we helped vulnerable people reach safety and we helped save many innocent lives. melissa: the president went on to say that the majority of military personnel sent for the mission will be leaving iraq in coming days. to the crisis at the ukraine border, nearly 300 russian humanitarian trucks are on the move once again towards ukraine's border but reportedly taking a detour to avoid
2:14 pm
inspections. here now are chris harmer from the institute of stud different war and fox news strategic analyst lieutenant colonel ralph peters. colonel, let me start with you. what do you think putin's plan is with the trucks? >> this is very straightforward. trying to provoke the ukrainians fire on the convoy or use violent means or use force to try to stop it. he needs that. and if the ukrainians, they're damned if they do, damned if think don't, if they do try to use force to stop it, interfere with the convoy crossing the border from russia into the ukraine that is putin's trigger to launch his military into ukraine to resolve a humanitarian crisis. but putin, you know, if one thing doesn't work, he will try something else. but he is not the kind of guy to declare victory and go home as president obama just did in the last clip. melissa: yeah, no. chris, what do you think about that? it's a different idea. not that these trucks in particular are filled with guns
2:15 pm
and weapons but rather, they could be filled with aid but the idea is to look threatening and provoke a reaction and starts something? >> i agree with colonel peters that the priority here for put fin is to get the ukrainians to engage with that convoy and hit it. i don't think we should be under any delusions this is civilian or humanitarian aid convoy. i don't know exactly what is in the convoy. what i do know it has been escorted continuously by russian military helicopters, russian military vehicles, russian state police and it has been stopping off at russian military bases. for all i know that convoy is full of food, water and other humanitarian supplies. but as strategic issue is functioning as element of russian military. second observation, the russian separatists rebels in eastern ukraine are failing. rebel commanders were resigned or fired by moscow if you believe moscow is in charge of this. the ukrainian army is outperforming expectations and pushing rebels back. the russian military has to
2:16 pm
consequentially intervene and substantially increase its aid to separatist rebels or accept the defeat of their separatist rebels in eastern ukraine. melissa: colonel, you say putin is somebody that doesn't go in reverse. it is very clear what it is he is after. how do you think this plays out and what he is doing and rest of the international community is doing. >> if ukrainians use force putin will send in the troops. his pried is involved, his strategy is involved. he rarely miscalculates. he is ugly but brilliant leader, consistently underestimated by the west. but as you just heard, after crimea, where ukrainian military which had been infiltrated by pro-russian officers failed to fight, failed to put up struggle, putin assumed he would be able to roll right over east ukraine too after taking crimea. the new regime in key very much, president poroshenko and others
2:17 pm
replaced pro-russian officers insinuated into the force. while the ukrainians are poorly equipped and poorly trained, they are fighting for their homeland. they have put up surprising good fight. it surprised putin. the economic sanctions surprised putin. melissa, it is the first time in 14 years that put tin has run into a significant roadblock because the west has always underestimated him. and now he is determined to win, as you said, he doesn't have a reverse gear. melissa: it will be frightening and interesting to watch. thanks to both of you. all right. troublesome signs for europe as eurozone gdp growth comes in at zero for the second quarter. look at that. big goose egg. back here at home u.s. markets are higher in today's session as the dow is officially in positive territory for the year. what is the disconnect there? let's bring in profitable trading's jared levy and paul and james are back with me as well. jared, why isn't this unsettling? why is the market shrugging off the idea that the european
2:18 pm
economy is going nowhere? >> it should be unsettling if you look at yesterday's poor data in the u.s., the market rallied, why? because people view it good for equities and lending. this is the theme, america is the best thing going. europe has had negative gdp over last two years. only expecting 1% this year. i don't think we get it. i think we go back into the negative. the mine set money will flow into american equities for some reason. we're globally connected. at some point we have to see ramifications of actions. i'm not happy to you. melissa: james? >> it does, i'll tell you reason why i'm concerned about this zero growth. eurozone represents 17% or accounts for 70% of global gdp. if they're stagnant and they don't have buying power there are a lot of u.s. companies will feel that, autos being one of them. this is a headwind that needs to be factored n that said the bad news for europe the fed might stand pat. people say that is good news for the equity markets but i'm tired of selling that story.
2:19 pm
melissa: i feel like that is getting old. paul, what do you think? >> regarding european gdp i think market doesn't have reaction because it is baked into the take. i think markets lowered their expectations. regarding the fed, i don't agree. i don't agree with the fed but i think they're on course to end tapering period. i think regardless they will raise rates towards middle of next year. >> stronger dollar. >> i think you still need, for the fed not to raise rates you really need some kind of out of the world event that really shakes the fibers. i don't think is going to happen. melissa: we'll leave it there. thanks, guys. playing new kind of field. unusual place that the new york jets are looking for love. good news for salt lovers everywhere whoo-hoo! add a extra dash of salt to your french fries. i love this story! do you ever have too much salt? ♪
