mind melissa francis is here. "money" starts now. what will you do? melissa: i never met a goat i didn't like. that one tops them all. deirdre: all right. melissa: a sure-fire sign of the top. confetti and party hats on wall street, as not one, not two, but three companies, go public. this hour the pilot behind that quad copter scare in our nation's capitol forced to answer for his actions this court. the hits keep on coming. a new study finds one in six retired nfl players going broke after leaving the game. we'll hear from a former nfl player is who banking on big business success. you think you got it bad? new rankings on the worst job in the country. this list is going to shock you. even when they say it's not, it is always about money.
melissa: just as ipos were taking a breather, from sizzling in 2014 today's triple debut threat, threatens to spark another feverish year. etsy virtu party city all soaring out of the gate. each started with market caps near $2 b i'm joined by our own charlie gasparino, david asman veronica daguerre at "wall street journal." i look at the confetti flying from wall street. it has ominous, toppy feeling about it. >> virtu pulled its ipo two years ago amid the controversy about the book high frequency trading. melissa: party city and etsy? >> virtue is a great story. melissa: these guys are the over the top etsy doesn't make any money. nobody on there actually sells anything. >> why is it up 130% on ipo day? melissa: right.
i think it is a sign of the top. >> i think search for return. there is such low interest rate environment. >> now up only 84%, forgive me. >> i think you're right about that. >> i think it is a niche company so to speak. they need to be able to scale that right? melissa: they don't make any money? what are you going to scale? >> how do you get more members, right? to grow the business to see what happens. >> don't lose sight, let me make this point. don't lose sight what virtu did. this is fascinating story, for two years michael lou is running around with the book saying markets are rigged. they may be rigged by the federal reserve but according to the regulators that investigated the hell out of virtu and everyone of these high frequency trading firms the markets are not rigged by them. >> charlie, doesn't success of virtu show the machines have really won? that is how they make the money. the machines that get the tiny spread. >> this has nothing to do -- here is the thing.
>> shows the machines won, doesn't it? you don't have a big bill dollar machine you can't make money. >> if you're the average investor out there think of this way. you have to worry more about the fed which is why park city and all those things, when they pull the plug, park city will not be worth that much money then -- >> you always have to worry about the fed. melissa: hang on, my point was virtu -- stop, stop. virtu that is real profitable company. but other two, etsy, we're like people make stuff at home go to sell it. i know plenty of people hang on who are on the site trying to sell it, and they don't actually sell anything. they use it home base to advertise their products. part city is loss like a dollar store. i don't want to pie stuff there, because it is cheaper on amazon. shipping is cheaper. these are two companies that are ridiculous. >> you're midsting the broader point. the two stories are linked. the markets are not screwed up
because the virtus of the world. they're screwed up because the fed as you said pumped so much liquidity into the market you go out and buy park city. melissa: party city. >> whatever the hell it is. who cares what they are. could be called crap city the same thing. makes so sense peach searching for yield and return. melissa: blockbuster day of netflix. shares soaring to all-time high $550. one analyst shade they're head headed. 900 dot a share. do you think that is right. >> he was outlyer of all the analysts. he was far afield. i think his point about the growth in subscriber growth, i don't know if his estimates, subscriber growth is earnings were disappointment compared to
what analysts are expecting. >> they have worldwide appeal. netflix is netflix is now bigger than cbs the number one television network is not as big as netflix. that is because we have a new tv model. even jerry seinfeld says tv is gone. tv is gone. getting rid of the cable. >> that is the story. you have nailed the broadcast media story. i think of the next 10 years. what it is called, cutting the cord. this company would what investors are saying when people really cut the cord, just beginning to do that they don't pay for cable. they get hbo-go or something. melissa: 34% of internet traffic on sunday night is netflix. 34% of the internet traffic. that is amazing. >> business story because shows if you can adapt as business, like netflix they got in business renting out dvds. unlike blockbuster who never learned how to adapt and died this company adapted extremely
well. >> what does it mean for our jobs in the future? >> it means we have to adapt, buddy. >> telling you i hate to say it you know? >> people will pay for us. melissa: christmas comes only once year just like vladmir putin's interaction with ordinary citizens. he used annual q&a to shrug off saying sanctions are hurting economy saying, sanctions are sanctions. putin's bigger fans may be readers of "time" magazine. annual readers poll named him most influential person putting him on top of korean entertainer, cl. everybody knows cl. korean pop star. lady gauge ga, rhianna taylor swift. he sits out four-hour event. 2.4 million questions submitted from random citizens. i bet things like can you kill a tiger with your bare hands. how hot is your mistress?
these are probably kind of questions. >> you know what it shows? history shows this over and over again when america is weak our enemies get stronger. that is always the case. i'm holding up a cover here, i don't know if you can see it. this is "time" magazine 1938. "time" magazine had adolf hitler on the cover. when you are weak, chamberlain or forgive me president obama facing enemies, your enemies fet stronger. >> i will say this putin is kind of an interesting guy. i will listen to him. >> would you have a drink with him? >> he has hot girlfriend no shirt on. something about him that i like. melissa: that is not surprising. that does not surprise me. largest protest by low-wage workers in u.s. history saw 60,000 people take to the streets in hundreds of cities. higher pay could mean end of dollar menu. burger king cofounder warns, quote, you will not get these dollar hamburgers anymore. i see a lot of 10-dollar ham burgers arriving on the scene.
that is the argument. there was alec baldwin out there, always happy to help in these situation, putting himself at center. play for us what he had to say. >> i'm just stunned that these people think that the way to gain support of new yorkers is to gum up the streets this way and make it difficult for people to live. melissa: so there is alec baldwin, your friendly neighborhood liberal, all about supporting higher minimum wage, until they slow down the commute around new york city. it is all over. it is all over. >> that is a great point. melissa: i don't think that is alec baldwin point. that is the smartest thing he ever said. >> that is not a lefty, lefty liberal a moderate liberal who understands this. i know a lot of liberals like this they're sick of constant protesting, gumming up the streets. these guys have no right to prevent me from getting to work. >> they want to live in liveable city. alan colmes voted for giuliani second time. very often liberals in manhattan
come to the lifestyle protest. mcdonald's caused all this raising salaries as pr stunt. i knew that would empower protesters. wouldn't cause them to back off. exactly what happened. >> to your point there will be consequence if you do raise wages to the $15 level, unintended consequences. more automation. more stores closing. >> get rid of dollar menu. >> more young people out of work. >> problem mat tick, people argue living in new york it is difficult to live on anything less than that. comply -- melissa: you can't live on $15 an hour in new york. can't live on $20. you work part-time for $15 an hour? >> i know people who do it, melissa, five people living in studio apartment. it is all over this place. all over this place. melissa: thank you, all of you. extra transparency. why the clintons refuse to let go of donations from foreign governments. no longer a war on leg room.
- all backed by an industry leading broadband network and people committed to helping you grow your business. you get a company that's more than just the sum of it's parts. centurylink. your link to what's next. [announcer:] what if one stalk of broccoli could protect you from cancer? what if one push up could prevent heart disease? [man grunts] one wishful thinking, right? but there is one step you can take to help prevent another serious disease- pneumococcal pneumonia. one dose of the prevnar 13® vaccine can help protect you ... from pneumococcal pneumonia, an illness that can cause coughing, chest pain difficulty breathing and may even put you in the hospital. prevnar 13 ® is used in adults 50 and older to help prevent infections from 13 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. you should not receive prevnar 13 ® if you've had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or its ingredients if you have a weakened immune system, you may have a lower response to the vaccine. common side effects were pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site.
limited arm movement, fatigue, head ache muscle or joint pain less appetite, chills, or rash. even if you've already been vaccinated with another pneumonia vaccine, prevnar 13® may help provide additional protection. get this one done. ask your healthcare professional about prevnar 13® today. deirdre: we -- melissa: we have breaking news. the nfl says minnesota strike kings adrian petersen has been reinstated. that is effective tomorrow. this is big news for petersen but also the vikings which have the right to keep him on the team or trade him for 2015 draft picks. petersen has -- peterson has been sidelined since last fall after hitting his four-year-old with a switch. you remember that controversy. the clinton foundation will keep accepting donations while hillary is run fog are white house because why not? steve moore. fox news contributor. david is back with us as well.
yep, i think they thought about this for a brief moment. you know what? it is rare to find a organization as transparent as clinton foundation. our current policy goes above and beyond what is required. blah, blah. hard to find an organization as transparent as clinton foundation. think about that wording, steve moore. that is like saying, i couldn't love you more? what does that mean? >> why they taking are the money? because they want the money. and think want hundreds of thousands if not millions of dollars that come in from the foreign contributors. i don't have a problem with it, quite frankly, if it is transparent, it is disclosed they can take money from whoever they want to. voters should think about this. why are foreign governments and foreign entities providing all money to the clinton foundation. does anybody think they claire about the clinton library? they are making these donations because they want access to potential president clinton in
2017. there is no question about it. people need to be very aware of it. >> i do have problems with it, frankly, steve. i know what you're saying, the editorial of the page of the journal has been saying that for years. however what happened to the rules about lawmakers not taking gifts for political favors? why is virginia governor bob macdonald going to jail? why is the same not happening to new jersey senator bob menendez? remember the fuss about dick cheney, and halliburton? why do the old rules apply to hillary clinton? rules don't apply to the clintons. >> i never defend hillary clinton but do it for one second. there is a difference between what bob macdonald did where his family got favors from lobbyists versus money going to the foundation. melissa: hang on a minute. the kingdom of saudi arabia giving millions of dollars into the foundation. >> yeah. melissa: last year the clintons $9 million in travel expenses. flying in private planes and traveling in style. >> of course.
melissa: how is that different? money went into the foundation, directly went to their luxury travel? >> i think that is a very fair point. there is kind of direct, indebt benefit that the clintons are getting from these foreign contributions. my point is -- melissa: i don't think that is indirect. that's direct. >> maybe it is a little bit of a bank shot but the real point here is, they are giving this money to the clinton foundation because they're trying to buy access in advance. that is all this is about. >> i love how he says, it's a bank shot. nobody does bank shots better than the clintons. it is absolutely true. >> i thought you were going to say me? i'm pretty good on bank shots. >> you're pretty straightforward. melissa: it is true on act sercs david asman. if you look what they're doing, of saudi arabia can't donate money any other way if they want access to clintons. if at same time they wanted to provide clean water and mosquito
netting to the africa, mon -- funneling money to the clintons is least official way. >> what happens if there is war between saudi arabia and iran? what happens if the middle east goes nuclear? what happens with your past connections with these foreign governments if something like that happens and the u.s. has to steer somehow a neutral role in all of this? >> or you ask yourself, what do the saudis think they're buying when they do that? fight over the death tax, bit my tongue on that one because it is so upsetting. the house voting to repeal 99-year-old estate tax, the right to transfer your property on your death. steve moore not mincing any words. you said the death tax redives to die in your column on foxnews.com. how come? >> money has been taxed. it was lifetime over mostly family-owned businesses. not fair to build it up when you die with it. very simple if you have a death
tax, you give incentives for people alive to spend down their money not reinvest in businesses. family-owned businesses guys are the backbone of the american economy. they are what create jobs. we want more money in family businesses, not less. melissa: i'm amazed number of times, david, we've seen this story on our own program "strange inheritance." somebody gets handed down something of great value. they were not a wealthy individual. they got something from a family member that they didn't expect. and they have to sell it because they can't afford to pay the tax unless they exit and get rid of it. >> they can't afford, nor have they ever had any contact with the lawyers and all the other accountants that make this worthwhile. make them understand how to do it in a way that won't bankrupt them. the clintons, by the way, bringing it back to the clintons, they have, they're very much in favor of the inheritance tax. both of them, the president was bill clinton -- melissa: money to the foundation. >> they have all money locked up in the trusts to avoid inheritance taxes.
rich people always avoid these things. middle class get stuck holding the bill. melissa: very true. >> warren buffett is perfect example. talk how rich should pay more, billionaires like him. he put billions, if not tens of billions in the biggest tax dodge ever invented the gates foundation. people get hammered by this are small business medium size businessmen and women who weren't thinking about this tax until it was too late. melissa: got to go. david what do you have on "after the bell" at 4:00 p.m.? >> we'll talk about hillary with dyed-in-the-wool liberal juan williams. he is coming up. the president of heinz north america. we're talking about ipos. they did exactly opposite went from public to private company. we'll be talking to him about what he thinks about all this. melissa: thanks so much, guys. the hardest hit of them all nfl players going bankrupt after leaving the field. spend those millions wisely, fellows. plus the doctor is in. how to receive counseling from the comfort of your couch. smart money on the way. ♪

the line and just talking to too much. melissa: get off the tack space right now? do they do that? >> much more politely. listen melissa we think should take some time off to think about what you just said. yeah. melissa: how effective is it to do it in a text format? i'm looking at one of the examples. welcome to talkspace. the person says i got separated again. third time last year. each time it breaks my heart. i think i simply won't survive. why does this keep happening to? seems like more you can deal with in a text. >> actually online therapy proves to be completely effect i have it and sometimes more effective than traditional face-to-face. melissa: how? >> multiplicity of researches. melissa: if somebody that has been there, there are reading your body language saying what you're trying not to say, trying to draw more out of you. how does that work in the text format? >> relationship created by texts, just like ones on

therapies, face-to-face couples therapy because we experienced a crisis in our marriage, we were on the verge of divorce and we decided to give it one last chance at couples therapy which literally saved our marriage. so i became so passionate about psychology that i wanted to become a therapist myself and i went back to school to study psychology. while i was studying psychology i realized the mental health system in america is completely broken. recent studies show one in five americans suffer from mental health issues each year. roughly 50 million people. melissa: this is way to get it out to so many people in more effective format. thanks to both of you. very interesting stuff. i may be busy texting during the commercial. we'll see. airline seats are squeezing you on every side you better watch your head. why your bags could be more comfortable than you on future flights. plus, out of your dreams into your fridge. ben & jerry's is betting latest creation will satisfy your sweet tooth and get you ready for the
