5:00 pm
find value. david: why don't you drive here to new york in a tesla and give it to me as christmas present. i would drive a tesla if you gave it to me. >> you want a test lakes good to see you, my friend. thank you very much. >> "willis report" is next. gerri: imgerri willis. we begin tonight with the billion dollars, billion dollars going back to consumers wallets. that savings from lower oil prices. now those prices plunging today, to five-year lows after opec slashed its outlook for 2015. however, your 401(k) probably took a hit as energy stocks pulled all three major indexes into the red. we're covering all angles with steve moore, chief economist at the heritage foundation and teddy weisberg, founder and president of seaport securities. welcome to you both. great to have you here. let's start, steve, with that windfall to consumers. the lower oil prices, i know a lot of people see bad in this. i see a whole lot of good.
5:01 pm
>> i sure do too. look, it is crazy to say on balance lower oil price is bad for american markets. it is great news for american markets. it is one of the reasons for the last six months the stock market has been on a tear. it makes everything we produce in the united states other than oil and gas you know, much cheaper and much more affordable for people. this is a good news story. it is obviously bad for oil and gas producers. but when you look at the stock market over the longer term, this is a positive story because let's just take for example, manufacturers. it means that the cost of manufacturing things in the united states is much cheaper when you, when you put that in combination with the, with the dollar that is so strong right now. i just see this as a good news story. and you're right, everyone penny decline in the gasoline price, gerri, is a billion dollars more money in the pockets of businesses and consumers. gerri: and that is an astonishing detail i have to say. that really tells the story for
5:02 pm
every penny gas prices fall, a billion dollars to consumers. yet, teddy, today the stock market falls like a stone. tell me what is going on there. a lot of people concerned. i've seen this movie before. stocks not positive yesterday. it was a scary day yesterday. worse today. what is your outlook and where is the santa claus rally, my friend? >> exactly where is the santa claus rally. we still have a couple weeks to go. perhaps the santa claus rally will still come. this is a tale of two cities. i think mr. moore is right on the money. ultimately lower energy costs are giant tax cut not only for the u.s. consumers but for the world consumers. gerri: right. >> in the bilge picture it is a good thing. -- big picture. a lot of traders i talk to are reminded what we saw towards the end of 2007 when the market was topping out. the first sector to role over
5:03 pm
and really roll over were the energy stocks. it wasn't three or four months later we found ourselves in 2008 and 2009. i understand it is not quite the same scenario today but the energy sector is a very big part of the s&p and the risk is, at least for the stock market is that this will spill over and i'm not saying today is a knee-jerk reaction to that but this will spill over because in a way, what it's telling us is, there is no demand for oil. the world is flush with oil and oil products. plus we have a lot of alternative energy today we didn't have before. and -- gerri: take that right to steve who wants to comment on that very topic. opec today slashing its demand outlook. i thought this was a supply issue you but they're saying 300,000 fewers barrel, the lowest in 12 years. >> yeah. gerri: steve, to you is this demand or supply issue? i thought fracking was solving
5:04 pm
all our programs here? >> it's a supply and demand issue. we're increasing our supply big time. i mean the united states is, 70% increase in our oil and gas out put in the last six or seven years but it also true what happened in europe and some countries like china, well europe is virtually in recession and china is slowing down, that means there is less demand. that is formula, when you have less demand and more supply, we know from economics 100 what happens to the price of something. gerri: exactly. >> it falls like a stone. gerri: teddy, to you. >> with the u.s. economy actually picking up in my opinion. we've seen 3 1/2% growth over the last six months f that continues you know our demand for oil and gas will increase. >> well, teddy, to you, can i ask you a quick question about that? >> yes. gerri: look we've had a five 1/2 year long bull market, right? >> right. gerri: we see stock market as forward-looking mechanism, we
5:05 pm
see what's in the future, right? >> right. it's a lead indicator, yes much. gerri: can this kind of incredible performance by stocks continue? >> you know there is a lot of moving parts here. first of all we haven't talked about the fed and they continue to be the 800-pound gorilla in the room. >> that's true. >> in fact falling oil prices on one hand good has create ad further dilemma i suspect for the fed which i basically put between a rock and a hard place because i don't think they quite know what to do going forward, vis-a-vis interest rates. but the bigger picture is, that the world's economies, i mean the opec estimates for oil demand are a reflection of what's going on around the world. not that is a new story. that's an old story but all of a sudden it is coming home to roost and you have a stock market that is trading just about at 11,000 for the dow, which was -- 18,000 for the dow which was 6500 five 1/2 years
5:06 pm
ago. by any measure we've had spectacular move mostly driven, by the way, not by the cost of petroleum but mostly driven by zero interest rates. gerri: yeah the fed, all about the fed. go ahead, steve. >> okay. so you know we've had two chapters in the last 30 or 40 years of declining, steeply declining oil and gas prices. that happened remember in the kind of early and mid 1980s where we saw big, big declines in the price of oil and gas. >> right. >> and the u.s. economy boomed during that period. >> right. >> when bill clinton was president in the mid 1990s we saw, i remember for a while, i don't know if you remember this, gerri, gasoline prices went below a dollar a gallon in someplace in the 1990s and economy boomed in that period. you're right there are problems with the world economy, no question about it. i'm very concerned about europe as you guys are. my point these lower oil and gas prices help the economy improve. they're not making it worse. gerri: i agree with that. you know we're the prettiest
5:07 pm
horse in the glue factory. teddy, last word here? >> i was reminded of 1991 when you could have bought occidental petroleum $15 a share. paid a dollar yield and oil was $20 a barrel and whole world thought it was going to zero. it's a commodity. the problem with the oil sector is it is not just the oil companies we need to worry about but the underlying commodity but overall nobody can argue that cheaper oil is better for a lot of people. gerri: cheaper oil is better and a high stock market is better for all our 401(k)s. steve and teddy, thanks for coming on. we need the perfect storm. thank you. well lower gas prices we're talking about here mean more money in consumers pockets. guess who wants that money? retailers who are pulling out all the stops to lure in christmas shoppers but will we be swayed? with more suzanne capner of "the wall street journal."
5:08 pm
welcome to the show. great to have you here. tell me what are these companies doing to attract more and more consumers into the stores? >> it is really just a market share battle right now. it is all about getting your name out there and so it is things like opening earlier. you're seeing kohl's opening for 100 hours. gerri: right at christmas, right? >> right. gerri: this is shocking. i can't believe this. this is amazing to me they would do that. is this unusual? >> you've seen stores opening on thanksgiving. gerri: right. >> and opening for very long hours over the thanksgiving weekend. 100 hours may be the record. when i talked to kohl's about it, they said we want to give last minute shoppers the opportunity. we don't want to miss a last minute shopper. we want to be open to get every last dollar of consumer spending this is a battle for market share, right? >> right. gerri: these guys are punching each other out trying to get every single dollar. i think it stems what happened over black friday. that was disappointing. are they still reeling from those losses?
5:09 pm
>> what we saw opening longer doesn't necessarily translate into higher seas. it just pulls sales from one period to another. you saw that over the black friday weekend. strong sales on thanksgiving moving from black friday to a day earlier on thanksgiving, kind of petering out as the weekend went. it remains to be seen, opening very long hours over christmas. consumers have a finite amount of money to spend. you know, you also have to factor in the higher costs of opening. you have to pay employees. you have to keep the lights on. and you know, it is not clear they're going to be that many shoppers in the store at 2:00 a.m. in some respects more of a publicity stunt. it raises kohl's profile and lets customers know they are out there, come to kohl's. >> what about retailers offering same day delivery. how likely are they going to do that? how likely are they going to keep the promise? >> last year with last minute shipping retailers ran into
5:10 pm
problems. there was a backlog. people didn't get their gift before christmas. one way they're hoping to avoid that, buy online or can pick up in store or a lot of retailers, walmart, macy's's, testing same day delivery in limited markets this has real advantages. it should save them money on shipping which is good for retailer. it should encourage that last-minute shopper, procrastinator, look you can still get your gift. gerri: absolutely. right here in new york city we're hearing amazon delivering by bike messenger. >> right. gerri: that is shocking to me. i'm dying to test to see if they actually make it happen. do you think this is the wave of the future? is this how retailers will be forced to operate in the coming years? >> what we're seeing no longer online, off-line, it is just shopping. retailers are trying to marry the web with their stores. amazon moving into physical location. vice versa with the brick-and-mortar stores. it is blending zoo consumers can
5:11 pm
shop anywhere anyhow. hopefully that will translate into more sales for retail years i think this year people just want to spend less. i think that is what you're seeing. for some reason this year there is different feeling out there. we'll see a the end of the day, at the end of the season if it translates into dollars and cents thanks for coming on the show. >> thanks for having me. gerri: more to come this hour including your voice. your voice is important to us. that's why during the show we want to you facebook me or tweet me @gerriwillisfbn. go to our website, email and i will read your e-mails at the bottom of the show. sony's massive hack attack exposing employees personal information, did the company drop the ball? we'll answer that coming up. ♪ ♪

5:14 pm
gerri: breaking news for you now, lending club, that company is pricing as an ipo. it is a peer-to-peer lender. the stock pricing at $15 a share. we'll of course follow that story in the coming days. on to sony, a big story. more documents stolen from sony entertainment in the recent hacking. they were posted on the internet today as more material is
5:15 pm
leaked. there are new questions about sony's management failure to stop it from happening. critics say it did not move quickly enough to secure computers when word of a possible attack was known of the for more on this cybersecurity expert who has been following the sony case very closely. eric, i understand you have sources at sony. what is the mood inside of the company tonight? >> they're pretty deflated. hi, gerri. deflated, upset, this is big concern in a relationship business because so many documents got out. a lot of these documents are very critical of actors they do business with including some very big names in hollywood. could it have been prevented? there is no question that they could have done a tremendous amount more. the minimum level of security was what they had and that today is just not enough especially with the big company like this, who will likely lose about $200 million over this breach. gerri: wow, that is a very big
5:16 pm
amount of money and i understand among the people being criticized angelina jolie being called something like a brat or something. we're seeing this kind of stuff leaking out slowly over several different websites. it seems to come out every day. when did sony know about this potential problem? they knew for a while that something was brewing. why didn't they put it together and why didn't they protect their employees better? >> well they knew about it on the 21st. they, and this happens quite a bit. you get ceos all the time getting these types of notices. it doesn't necessarily mean anything will happen. this one though i think based upon the trail and the ip should have alerted at least the minimum level of security to begin to move into action. nothing was really done in terms of any level of security. they had a full three days that they could have prevent attracted a lot of these files from getting loose. a lot of these, really concerning messages about stars. i mean angelina jolie, adam
5:17 pm
sandler, and the fact that adam sandler may not be worth the kind of money he is getting paid, that, in hollywood in a relationship-oriented town, that is, it is flammable. it is like a huge explosion. gerri: you keep using that word relationship and i think you have got that exactly right. here are what some employees are talking about pretty publicly. one is quoted in forbes saying listen to this what i'm annoyed if this hack happened under obamacare there would be legitimate calls for obama to resign. their own security chief didn't feel it was good business sense to have good i.t. security. they should all resign. why is everybody hugging their -- shrugging their shoulders and moving on? >> the team at sony from entertainment standpoint are some of the best in business and how to make a lot of money. i know a lot of the executives there and have been on the lot quite a bit. so you have got a talented group
5:18 pm
of people. where they failed and this is, you know they're not alone in this, is the i.t. side just didn't step up enough. they didn't take it serious enough. hopefully this is a warning to many of our corporations throughout america that you could be next. you really need to step this up and go to the highest level of security possible because these hackers, they, this is their focus. their focus is to disrupt and destroy. many times extort. there are things that you can do to stay ahead of it and you should. gerri: eric, at the time sony was saying, we have the best security. i mean, come on, what is it? we don't have it. we don't have it? they need to take more responsibility for this, don't you think? >> the reality the facts speak for themselves. gerri: right. >> this was a minimum level of security. i think that it's clear they didn't do a good enough job. it is clear, it is unfortunate. there is a tremendous amount of money being lost. they do need to take
5:19 pm
responsibility but fix it and certainly ceos right now in that same position, that are getting messages or getting threats or could get threats need to act. you've got to facts in this business. gerri: so that point, this started out as corporate blackmail. and you know, every ceo tonight is thinking how would i handle this if this came across my desk? what is the right thing to do? eric, we'll have to continue the conversation. thank you for coming on tonight. >> thank you, gerri. good to see. >> good to see you. and later in the show why apple is hoarding the iphone 6 this holiday season. they're only selling it in their stores. our year-end guide to financial moves. it is a good time of year a good time to fund your ira or prop up your foreowe one k. we'll show you how to do that coming up. ♪

millions of customers by having beefed up their network, simplified their plans, they have done away with contracts, i want to tell you something crazy, ready? ready? gerri: i am. >> i have 9 lines on my plan, i am on t-mobile, i pay $180 total for 9 lines, not that many years ago i paid over $200 for one -- my one line. gerri: the changes are dramatic. and probably, one of the best deals out there, it has to be $60 a month deal out there from sprint. this is really a game changer. as you said companies are complaining, at&t, and verizon other companies saying we can't make money in this environment, is this what you see in marketplace, a lot of come pet ors dukeing it out.
5:39 pm
>> yeah. and we're not at the bottom yet. we're still early innings on how much prices will drop on cell phone service. some of the no-name companies the companys that are not in state of mind for any of us, they are down now at 25 a month for unlimited talk, and unlimited text, and unlimited data, who knows what bottom will be. a company called freedom pop offering basic monthly service, not a lot of minutes, texts or data but monthly charge is $0. gerri: how are they doing that? >> they started by people from skype, their deal is what they hope is you get in their house, realize you can't get by with their free plan that is 200 minutes a month, 500 text-messages and half a gig of data, you start buying stuff
5:40 pm
