treasuries. impact will is that? >> it isn't in back flynn the rank order of what is attractive in the world. it is elaine notion of zero real interest rates for this reason you treasury so you have to look where to put the money. this is not going to impact, we try to draw a bright line between trading and investing so it will not make a big change in our world. maria: because of trading it is not investing, looking long term you like equities. talk about how you are allocating capital. >> the rank order of what is attractive in the world, the hundred pound gorilla is zero real interest rates for the ten year bond so that is the risk free rate for ten years. we have to compare everything to that so we like equities, the risk premium of equities over bonds is quite high so we think 7% nominal return for equities going forward which is attractive, not what we had the last six years which is 11% compound that makes sense when you have that performance you have something lower going forward but that is the
attractive. maria: you like developed markets like japan, europe and emerging markets. what would cause emerging-market s to turn? we are waiting for a pickup in markets for a long time. >> of u.s. investors for evaluation, everyone asks for the catalyst. in our world the catalyst is price and dividends cheap enough it moves. people look for cash flows little investing is acquiring future cash flows aware of the cash flows? uconn by $100 of future earnings for $1,000. the united states you pay $2,000 for the same $100 of future earnings, 20 times earnings, ten times earnings, we are looking for the cash flow. maria: if the market is cheap doesn't necessarily mean it will become cheaper. >> that is true. that is why you have the rise in as investors do, not traders. maria: do you agree? >> yes. it is so clear, and the numbers as john described sometimes it
is so easy i am ashamed of myself. the stocks make it, i would like to go in the other direction and ask if there are so many people nervous and negative today on the stock market they are looking for a lot of things that are negative, what is the worst bubble, most risky asset out there today? you would tell people who are nervous to avoid? they are avoiding stocks but the bond market, what is it? >> anything interest rate-sensitive has been subjected being in a bubble. we have seen corrections like rates. driven up by people chasing yield, u.s. equity market is not in up bubble. if it gets in a bubble, bull markets don't end from old age, they die from excess. we don't see symptoms in the equity market indicating the end of a bull market. we could have a pause, the word correction is positive. we are really looking at what people own, confirming a they want to own what they own and
adjusting it so they have conviction in what they own. we think we are in that phase and we will accumulate stocks and pull backs. dagen: related to what you are talking about this headline in the wall street journal about shine at dumping u.s. government debt, we have indications -- i wonder if people, we are living in the garden of eden in terms of interest rates and it could be a move by china and other central banks and other nations to have rates skyrocket and puts us in reserve in a position to buy treasurys to keep longer-term interest rates lower. >> those are legitimate concerns, markets are price equally, somebody has to sell it to you. when it is so confusing you have to fall back on a disciplined and our discipline is priced cash flow, looking for the cash flow. the idea of skyrocketing
interest rates doesn't seem to be anywhere close to our future. we are more on the side of interest rates likely to stay low for a long time. there is no superdemand for currency around the world for capital around world driving interest rates higher. >> $120 billion the chinese spent in september to defend the currency from going down more. this isn't about bonds rising. dagen: it is about china and always is, you like developed markets, japan and europe, do you want to hedge out the dollar or do you think the dollar stopped going up? >> that is a long conversation, depends on what investors and so forth but one of the fundamental ideas you start with is having on dollar-denominated assets is part of the diversification program so it is a a good fundamental notion to start with and it gets more complicated from there so global multinational companies are
hedging already, where are their earnings coming from, it is a complicated issue. we look back at price to cash flow and say they are cheaper than general electric. cheaper isn't ford. we like that isn't right, right across the board, you can buy these great multinational companies that had discussed with their trading in the united states. >> thanks for sharing your insights lose >> my pleasure to be easier. markets out with a shortage of extravagance in the magazine, nicole petallides with that story. nicole: this catalog is something else, 2016, this year there's something for everyone to fantasize about. if you are in to motorcycles you this for a ride down but coast of the honor reeves, bike along this experience and it will run you about $150,000 for all your

position as the first search destination according to a study by bloom reach. 44% of consumers go directly to amazon first to search for products compared to 24% of additional search engines. i know you are doing it, we are stuck. dagen: i use amazon for the time being. or need this point of. >> we get there in one day and you don't think. >> chuck robins has only been on the job for 11 weeks. he is no stranger to customers devolving demand. i spoke to him in his first business interview since taking the job that cisco invest with the company needs to do to have the kind of growth is seen in the past. >> when we look at what customers are trying to accomplish their moving regardless and increase io, every company in the world, every country is trying to better understand the
digitization face and frankly they're trying to understand the implications for my business, what threats might it freehand what opportunity might it create a they are thinking about the opportunity for them to disrupt their industry and business models so we see customers moving regardless. dagen: did since those coin the term the internet of things? >> connecting things has no inherent values of we think of how we change these connections, what do you do with that data, analysts and information and insights you can gain from the data is the most valuable thing you gain from the connection in the first place and did unleashes tremendous opportunity. >> tell me about the growth expectations for the business. >> what you find bizarre customers are saying they're not moving to the cloud to save
money. what is providing is greater flexibility, greater agility, the ability to provisions very infrastructure and down based on demand and increasingly what we will do is provide customers the same capability in their private infrastructure and we will enable use of their private and frustration for mission critical applications and data they want to maintain inside their enterprise and it will enable law hybrid connectivity so they can get the best of both worlds and leverage public and private clouds and we work with the public cloud providers to help. build out their capabilities, we work with enterprise customers to help them build down not only their private capabilities the interconnection between it did to. maria: what industries are most ploys to to the transition teachers the growth that cisco as it relates to the cloud? >> when you think about what is happening with did it is asian it is going to create an environment where customers a
going to have massively distributed infrastructure classmate of private and public clouds and i think that the industry's seeing the benefit of this new connectivity, we see it in manufacturing, retail, hopefully beginning in health care and those that the industry's beginning to see the benefit of connecting the manufacturing floor or in retail taking an alexander information you can gain from the network and correlating what you know about your customer with where are they and the story and you can do some interesting things in engage with the customer in a much higher value way based on what you know about them and where they are in the retail environment. maria: are you seeing the kind of reception you would expect given what you just said when you layer on the fact the we are looking at a global slowdown? >> customer the trying to figure out how to be more efficient, save money, drive greater revenue, drive a different level of intimacy with my customer and
the technology is enabling that. maria: we talk a lot about tax reform on this program and what needs to be done to make corporate america willing to hire more people. i have spoken with your predecessor quite a bit about tax reform and all the cash on the balance sheet. how much are you that right now in terms of cash for the balance sheet? >> $60 billion. maria: much of which is overseas. what would you like to see from a policy level in terms of tax reform to bring money back to the u.s.? >> we are optimistic right now because there's a great deal of work going on in washington around this topic and if you think about what is needed for the infrastructure in the united states there is work being done. paul ryan is helping lead this initiative where we would actually connect the repatriation of these funds with the establishment of this infrastructure fund and we need to reform tax policy so it makes
companies more competitive on a global scale. we are optimistic about it. maria: on the subject of allocating cash, you are on the job 11 weeks right now as ceo of one of the great companies in the world, cisco. what your priorities in terms of investing cash? >> we are looking at where our cash can drive future growth and we look at acquisitions in that space. we have committed to shareholders to return 50% free cash flow through dividends and buybacks and we are committed to that, it depends what is happening in the market, where are the opportunities, things are moving rapidly and you will see as the opportunistic on the acquisition side but we are committed to capital returns. maria: new leader of this company what are your priorities? >> there are four things we looked at early on with my team and one of them is how do we accelerate the things that are working at less the candid about the things that aren't.
how do we really drive our culture? our culture is so important internally as well as how we treat our partners and customers and investors. the second is for a third is around simplicity and clarity. the pace at which we have to move requires us to drive a level of simplicity in everything we do and a level of clarity in how we communicate the we never have before. everything we do is complicated. it is our responsibility to simplify it that. what is important is a dynamic operational capability, it is moving fast. maria: chuck robins, thank you, we saw him on the show yesterday, we discussed ben bernanke's views on the fed and the u.s. economy, keep it here on "mornings with maria," we will be right back.

decision. dagen: if you they back and read not the actual transcript of fed meetings when they come out five years after the affect, you can go back and look at what the fed was discussing in the internet bubble in 2000. having conversations, can you believe this is going on? i am surprised he republicans under the bus the way he talked about don't blame the fed's fiscal policy, it is the spending, republicans are trying to cut spending since 2010. maria: for six years he was talking about of a fat it is all about the fed and that is the only stimulus in town so we haven't had fiscal policies so i agree with that. why have we had that? the white house as well. >> those are the facts. is not a political observation, these are the facts and the fed right now is no longer helping the q e stopped helping a couple years ago so the fed isn't helping. if they could start getting out of the way at the markets, could
do something in december, won and done, people describe it -- maria: are you buying stocks regardless? you are bullish on that. >> it was a great interview. you have exxon will yield in 4%. maria: great to have used this morning, stick around, we will see you in a little bit, stay with us. can a business have a mind? a subconscious. a knack for predicting the future. reflexes faster than the speed of thought. can a business have a spirit? can a business have a soul? can a business be...alive?

clinton's server, the fbi is moving forward with this doesn't that speak to the obama administration but they have just stepped away from this investigation? >> it seems they have stepped away. funny to see the clinton campaign's talking points. this is a long criminal investigation. of course it is noncriminal. it is an investigation. what comes next that the criminal elements if they find misdeed and it looks more and more classified information comes out at the end of every month that was in her e-mails that will find problems. i doubt hillary clinton will be indicted, but it is really bad news for her and good news for joe biden and bernie sanders. >> we just got these new polls from quinnipiac on swing states, vice president joe biden and ben carson running strongest in the polls head to head. what do you think of that? do you think the reason is the nominee if joe biden gets in?
>> janelle likely this hillary clinton will be the nominee because of a momentum that joe biden has none of the quinnipiac will you are talking about has florida, ohio and pennsylvania, three swing states did since 1960 candidates who win the presidency had to win two of those that the poll shows the the reciting back in those, as disliked as any candidate except donald trump and joe biden showing he is doing very well and all of the states and the matchup against ben carson he is winning in florida but i don't think he will be running against ben fresen in the general election. they makes this the decision this weekend. there was the reports out that we will probably find out something this weekend. he hasn't hired any staff but spoke in the global leadership conference last week, people i know who were there said the last half of his speech was his stump speech and it wowed the people. >> in headline news his empathy is significant and he did talk
about how his son asked him to run for the presidency. maria: thanks for your insight, see you soon. chris bedford of volkswagen, massive recall of diesel cars ever any missions scandal locks $25 billion from its market value, told a german newspaper of all goes according to plan the company will begin recalling those cars affected in europe in january and complete the fix by next year. according to experts like credit suisse this could cost volkswagen up to $87 billion, that is a lot of money, that will obviously be impacting earnings. your three things today, will, rotation, i want to talk about that the first your thoughts on 11 million diesel powered cars affected, half a million sold in the u.s.. >> this is going on and on. $87 billion isn't what it used to be. you had a fantastic interview with ben bernanke who was suggesting $4 trillion isn't that much.
when you conceptualize what is going on in terms of the world's problems this has been a huge story. i don't know how to play it specifically when it comes to the market but pivoting to the oil side there's a lot going on. yesterday we had the biggest rotation day or variants day in sector returns. some things were alive and some things were down a lot. at one point, oil and gas was up 6%, biotech was down 6% says the variants was an unbelievable day where people have been forced to chase what they didn't own, we call this the texas edge, energy and get out of what they own which is health care and biotech. at one point of the health care edf was down 4% on top of the biotech so this is a big-time rotation. a lot of people losing a lot of money and the down market losing money too so it will be interesting. i think oil is over by today. it has looked good since the
federal reserve had to fade in december with the jobs report. maria: you said that on this program, energy looks okay. i want to get out of the way. you were looking at energy positively. that is a good call. >> the good call was being, could have gotten a lot bigger along oil, not being short oil. but shorter oil for afraid what i think just happened. dagen: fear has rallied over and over again and the bottom falling out repeatedly. >> what we look at is on measurable quantity of reality which is the risk of a range. the range now for oil is 45 to 50 so at 50 you sell, 45 you buy and it is a buyer's market but you have to selig too. it is a trader's market, with goals, i am at seller. this is how we navigate an easier more dovish, that equals dollar down, signaling overssold so a lot of these are coming home to roost, oppose the jobs
report which is perverse but the reality. maria: i was struck, $4 trillion boundary is not that big a deal, they can unwind and they don't have to do it right away. >> watching -- >> in terms of interest rates don't you think they have to come off of zero because of a credibility issue? >> no, no, no. it would be highly sensitive to interest rate hike. passing markets. dagen: i-man he works for, ken griffin, has about 3 did million dollars in real-estate and miami, paid a record price in miami. it would be a conflict. and it is that bubble.
maria: we will take a short break. and the biggest daily hints of football websites gaining steam. announcing an investigation. the wall street journal of battle brewing atop the media giant's via, amid rising questions about the health of the executive chairman, iraqis lobbying vladimir putin for russian air strikes targeting of the islamic state. they want russia there and carly fiorina's age the tenure disputed legacy. a republican hopeful claiming her resume shows for she is business savvy, stalked and 50% during her tenure, that is the story in the journal, we will be right back.

>> connecting new things doesn't have any inherent value. every company has to think how to change your processes, what do you do with that data is issue analytics and information and insight you can gain from the date that is the most valuable thing you gain from the connection in the first place and its unleashes tremendous opportunity. maria: that was chuck robins in an exclusive with me late yesterday. after talking about making money in an age of information what it means for the company, the house cisco has traded year down 2% in an environment where the macro story has been one of the biggest worries for cisco and that is what we have been talking about on set for a while. fantasy sports sites now working with new york attorney general with allegations of insider trading at the firm. we continue coverage now. cheryl: concern is over
employees using information not known to the public to gain an advantage on competitor sites to win big money. new york attorney general now asking draft kings for a range of internal data and details on how they prevent fraud. meanwhile espn cutting draft kings content but continue broadcasting from the daily fantasy goes for sight. pulling advertising from espn yesterday but not clear if that was for more than one day, 20 per -- 21st century, an investor in draft kings. cheryl: this brings to the forefront of the relationship between the nfl and the betting sites. and sponsored segments, espn is pulling. this is another big problem for roger goodell. you have been looking at this. dagen: robert kraft and jerry jones own stakes in draft kings among other companies.
to company's defense the reason people have been so attractive, this is an industry, almost an industry of two that has blown up in terms of popularity. they are an advertising category in and of themselves. these companies have spent by my calculation $150 million on advertising just this year alone. the attraction is obvious. i don't think this is inside information. the information they are talking about only gets you so far. >> it reminds me not to name names but pretty big wall street firms that use different run their clients looking at their book too. as long as we know that is what they are doing tell your customers that's flat people on the wrist because the product. maria: you can't do that on wall street. >> i can't because of a have clients out there but there are some well-known wall street firms and by the way bloomberg
did this, bloomberg is looking at plants inside the terminal and breaking news on that. i don't know what the legal recourse would be but these are very cool platform as if they ever to go away. dagen: they are inviting regulation, inviting scrutiny and asking states to outlaw blatantly outlawed in the state of montana. however, will politicians take it that far? is so popular. maria: you hear from the nfl on this but in testimony just released in new jersey, roger goodell said the nfl separate fantasy games from betting because they're not continued on the outcome of a contest but on performance of individual players. >> this is the loophole, why
they're so popular. dagen: it is legal based on federal law because these are games of skill. they are not just games of chance. that is the definition. >> the other important links, who makes money or loses money if draft games were to be indicted? watch nfl red zone with a lot of people watch, sponsored by draft games. the nfl is tied to this thing, it will be interesting to see them attempt to have it if they have to let all. maria: we will talk to jason robins about that. jason robins my guess in the 8:00 a.m. hour, 21st century fox has an investment in fracking so we will talk to jason robins about this coming -- coming up gasoline prices at their lowest level in ten years. one auto giant says get used to less pain at the pump. we will go live to the cme in chicago, back in a moment. ♪
maria: gasoline prices that level in a decade rising at any continental dollars and $0.30 a gallon. according to general motors' chief economist low prices could last for decades. phil flynn is in chicago and you agree with that position. >> absolutely. i have been talking about a new era of low gasoline prices for the last couple years but i want to give people the right idea about that. doesn't mean gasoline prices will fall everyday or stay below $1 a gallon but the highs will be lower and lows are going to be higher. new technology, better grades of crude we are able to produce is
allowing those prices to divorce themselves from spikes we have seen in a crude, our record amount of what we have seen before keeping prices low relatively speaking. maria: how much in the last couple weeks on oil? >> prices of oil not up as much as derivative plays, russian stock markets of the present in the last month. so many ways to look at it. oil and gas stocks up 5%, and the edf on the day. oil and gas, stocks are up 10, 25% on but they. a whole host of the emotional issues born out of what phil said. dagen: 27% from the 52 week low in august. it is still in crash mode. this is where phil's point makes sense. intermediate-term low or highs but higher lows, makes for good

soviet union in old soviet states they just literally the people walked away from those so stuff went missing. 30 years ago, 20 years ago. and as a result, it has been around, just hasn't found right buyer not just nieshg weapons problem not nuclear weapons or small nuke preponderancy fissile materiel not able to apply a nuclear arsenal but plenty around to make a dirty bomb the difference now, in the reason that you are hearing about it now, is isis has the money, are and i want to has the interest and has the intention. maria: also shows you that your seeing this kind of activity in that isis is trying to procure nuclear materials. >> i think al-qaida osama bin laden wanted to do it couldn'tfying out how didn't have money access but isis is now has cells around the world, and particularly has cells in some of the former
soviet union states in muslim populations muslim extremists that is what chechen war was all about, in russia, that putin made his claim to fame, by winning over against violent muslim extremists so i think it is a matter of time before somebody gets her hands on stuff, that is why a sting operation is extremely important that is why u.s. intelligence is crucial and ultimately will probably sharing intelligent with putin zplush can you speak to the dangers of iranian nuclear weapon because if iran is allowed to get a nuclear weapon the surrounding suni states saudi arabia jordan all going to want heavy a nuke weapon set off nuclear proliferation across middle east doesn't that up odds nuclear material of some kind will fall into hands. >> on steroids not even around with nuclear weapons the next countrys that get them like
you say you ticked off a a list, what happens if those countries fall if the leadership of those countries falls in different hands we are arab spring entrenched dictatorships can fall in a matter of days what happens if one of those countries has a small nuclear arsenal leaders get yes or no thrown isis takes over then we have the first for the first time in nuclear age we have the nightmare scenario nuclear weapons in hands of crazy people want to use them. don't mind dying, so long as they take a lot more people with them. >> famous. maria: is there a lot of confusion in the white house about what putin's really intention is here? and the fact or what may be the fact that, his intention goes well beyond syria? >> i think he has three -- yeah white house, they are confused about everything, but i think putin has three objectives, one he is going to prop up assad what he is doing right now this week, in the middle east killing everybody,
who is not in favor of assad he will get to isis eventual what he wants to do wipe out or i allies enemies to show our coalition is a joke. he said as much at u.n., so then the couple weeks' time faced with apple choice, isis or assad or -- that the point, putin will have made the point he is the one to go to in ine maine the reliable big partner not americans, so he wants to control the middle east. second thing i think using that is an opportunity, to pick our pockets speculatives else if i am going to pick your pocket i am not going to show you pocket i am picking i am going to make you distracted look somewhere else the second obama to emasculate nato he started flying accidental, in turkish airspace, turkey a nato memberu will see incidents in the baltics northern nato, where there will be little incidents that will happen, a denial by accident but all definitely by putin's design the third thing should
interest your viewers, is the oil market. this is an oil play. russia combined with the arab middle east, is the world's exported oil market right? you control the world exported oil market you try to control the world economy, so much bigger game does it get putin get there by end? who knows a narrow wind of opportunity he can't count on a weak president after january 2017. >> for sure, thanks we appreciate it. casey mac far landed new -- university swing state poll out this morning blake berman with numbers on that good morning to you. reporter: good morning to you that latest quinnipiac poll from quinnipiac shows donald trump not losing grip the top spot in the republican primary, he is the overwhelming choice in nutritious swing states florida pennsylvania ohio, old in in all three as you can see there by doctor ben carson of note trump received as much support as jeb bush marco
rubio, combined. and the pollster conducted this concluded bush is quote treading water. here is the potentially one reason why, while trump remains the top of the list for who republicans would not vote for, bush is the clear second. on the democratic said to hillary clinton is still on top. but the undeclared joe biden numbers continue to creep up as you can see there, even ahead of bernie sanders in those three states and looking long term, maria this is really a mixed bag for clinton and trump as they lose more head-to-head matchups against the other party, than they win in hypothetical general election matchup in those states that mantle goes to biden carson instead. maria: interesting stuff blake this you so much talk about that for a second. >> these polls versus where the real money would be made i think i sent an e-mail on this earlier in the week european money, bets, polls people put money on do you actually think
trump can get nomination, very few people are putting that money bet on the table, they are actually putting money on the table that you can see hillary, rubio or bush if you had to bet there is rhetoric we are well aware of. dagen: there is lag time betors maybe two months behind primary voters might be. and look i mean, early on trump you know will swing out a summer roms the summer roms turned into autumn roms now he could actually pull this off. i am not saying he will i am saying he could. >> you said that you know joe biden was going to enter the race long time ago first person to say it, on this program. >> when is it going to happen. >> the word is according to cbs earlier this week that he is going to make a decision in announce it in the next 5 to days or so i think absolutely running if you look at pecuniary appearances public schedule, all political speeches, labor day made big
labor day speech to unions unions, by the way, have not endorsed hillary now flirting with donald trump, a very interesting turn of inventories. >> really is unions are we have got to watch that bring in ed ceo president terrence group former senior advisor to scott walker thanks for joining us? a how do you read these polls. >> first of all, a lot of polls out there, in this quinnipiac poll we have of a sample fairly large survey but you are still looking at about 20% of what they are reporting as the republican voters in the race we are seeing internally in various campaigns that trump is running about half of what he is ring in public polls larger audience as opposed to primary voters i think what you do see is we are beginning to move out that have phase i talked to you about before kind of window shopping phase where looking at three or four candidates, to actual going in
looking closer at the record of those candidates that is where you are seeing a carson, you are seeing a rubio, really start to surface. out of these numbers, and i think you are going to see that continue the next month. >> donald trump made a really interesting point on in an interview with with bret baier fox nice channel last night basically saying media is not friendly to him when it comes to polling because he has been at the top aa big margin so long he is saying the second he drops a persistent or two in the polls, all of a sudden headlines all over the world trump -- >> are you going to drop out when are you going to drop out. >> interesting point, because he has been at the top by so much, for so long. maria: yeah. >> if you look the alternativals more say they would not vote for him that one vote for him more importantly when you look at broader survey, he is in terms of unfavorable 50s not
trusting high 50s awfully numbers will come home to radios is not a so many say trump for marketing going to drop out. >> listen i think the beginning took the rays on as lark i have no evidence, speculation then started to win i think it most shocking to him that he has been able to -- >> to lead and maintain lead, but curious to hear your thoughts on idea that the top three are still antiestablishment, antipolitician sending a signal to republican establishment we're going to decimate the establishment and normal way things are done 18 trillion dollars in debt disfun shunnal washington that i think very strong message regardless of who is nominee i think they would be wise to take on that message an bishop it. >> i think anti-washington message very much there quite
frankly, it is driven by middle class middle class feels very strongly on both enterprise that, the rich are getting special deal getting richer poor getting the programs and getting the bill. and tired of it because they don't see anything working in washington. but when you look at the top three candidates just that window shopping phase, where they are getting the attention, quite frankly, trump one of the things i said about him like macy's christmas window everyone going there being entertained but not going in and buying. and quite frankly that is one of the points on trump he is entertaining voters anger but not driving that anger i think you are going to see other candidates get more in the mode of really attaching what they stand for, to where voters stand in terms of their frustration, and anger towards washington. >> you are going to move on to another campaign? >> i may. i may. but you know, it was i was deeply committed to scott walker, i thought he was a great candidate i think you will see him in the future, so i will take my time.
. jo welcome back prince al-waleed betting on twitter again kingdom holding company increased stake close to 35 million shares 5% of twitter stock one year after i spoke with the pertains about miss strategy when it comes to twitter social media. >> i thought really moving turn to -- china, i said these are really high flying, star companies in the arenas, yes, we are very focused in our plan investing in these companies to tell you frankly speaking many companies tome to us in this arena just last week we declined maybe two or three companies because thrp
>> we assumed because in media we use it for our purposes, for marketing branding, but everybody knows how to use twitter how it could be useful to them company najd we need to tell how they can use this then tell them how to money ty it. >> they don't know how to make money with it everybody knows look, with when aol came out almost everyone on desk i think used iteratively there is also a something wall street uses because it is i used to say twitter is new, the fastest way to get information on tape that is new -- >> we use aol instant messenger. >> it was new. >> -- should trade at 20 times revenue on forward or something like this it is crazy. >> twitter is trying to add bells and when issels a feature twitter moments talking about expanding the
messaging beyond 140 characteristics sort of defeats purpose focus on core business, focus on what you are designed to do and do that well. by the way, you could make haim same argument for uber valued 55 billion dollars that is justified? >> that is not -- i mean again, we say i don't know how many times bubble the end of fourth quarter last year this is a bubble if you fail to acknowledge it you will be blown up multiple bubbles all over the plays you can talk about bubbles bubbles if you want. >> i like your tweet if not doing macromacrois doing you, that was good nfl in hot water followings allegations of possibly fantasy football concern and draftkings ceo jason robbins to get his take back in a moment.

perverse. gleans prize lowest in a decade 2.30 a gallon according to gm chief economist low gasoline prices could last for decades,phil phillip at cme in chicago right now phil. >> good morning got to love this new era of low gasoline prices u.s. oil production, better quality oil better refining techniques fuel efficiency means we are going to keep prices lower for longer, not all the time, going to go up and down but new era low prices not only that lower heating bills as well, the energy information, administration, recorded yesterday that if you heat with heating oil prices 25% lower this winter 10% lower with natural gas 18% if you use propane you got to love low prices, back to you. maria: thank you so much phil flynn keith mccullough we talked about oil, crude oil in this range where you would be a seller what about gasoline.
>> that one tougher, much tougher for me to trade i try to keep it again from the top down, the thing back on oil, though leading indicator, i am getting questions on this on twitter rick earth said 50 to 60 i said immediate term trading range 38, 38 to 50. immediate term, very different perspective and this is why the markets going to like this so much because, they are conflicted, again, the media term not telling i think going to perpetuate gasoline natural gas or wti, what you see tremendously elevated level oil volatility the equivalent of vick obx down in low 40s that range looks more like being 40 to 55 if you had 40 to 55 vix in the stock market, you know people would be we could see people going out the windows right there it would be a very big problem and, again, i think that is the problem in oil market will continue to be.
maria: . >> from a consumer standpoint phil phillip detailed how seeing historically low gas prices natural gas heating oil going to cost us less to heat homes this wintery still consumer not using that tradition money in pocket to spend it elsewhere. >> coming out like casey said picking your pocket other side all-time record highs in rent. >> how about funeral care acting been bernanke had nothing to say about this they are in a depression make 50,000 bucks a year spend 48,000, 49,000 to eat have a bed something over their head gas prices by the time get it to -- >> 100 on their car spending 160 on health care. >> a wash, we just have been stagnant not seeing growth there there is no general growth in the economy, so going into the political cycle this is what matters to these
candidates, they have to speak to the middle class because there has been no upward moinlt last 8 years. >> that is true up next former federal reserve chairman been bernanke with us interesting take on direction of the u.s. economy highlights, back in a moment. (patrick 1) what's it like to be the boss of you?
>> welcome back, good wednesday morning, everybody, i'm maria bartiromo. it's wednesday, october 7th. once again with me this hour, fox business's sandra smith. hedgeye's keith mccollough and monica crowley. isis, the associated press reporting that fbi busted smugglers trying to sell to extremists, that bust took place this year when smugglers were looking to sell radioactive material to isis members. and the fantasy football is once again in question, espn pulled draftking and fanduel
after they reportedly used information for big payouts on other sites. and asking draftkings and fanduel for how they do in fact prevent fraud. jason robbins will be my guest. 21st century fox has an investment in draftkings. take a look at equities, the stock market is expected to open up at 100 points on the dow jones industrial average. 40 points on the nasdaq and the s&p 500 also in positive territory. a couple of stocks to watch today for constellation brands, stock is up on stronger than expected earnings and revenue, the rise in revenue driven by higher beer sales, especially in the united states, want -- one to watch on the down side, the third quarter was a milk and the stock is down about 15%. instagram is posting the most followed account.
kim kardashian among them. taylor swift has the most followers, and 49.6 million followers, kardashian is second with 48.1 million followers and beyonce in third place with 42.7 million fans. and fears have struck, and wild swings with triple moves. yesterday i spoke with ben bernanke and asked him how he could characterize the economy. >> i think it's improving, moving forward at a moderate pace, nice if it would be stronger. we came a long way. 2009 the unemployment rate was 10%. today it's 5. we've had six years of growth. maria: i want to bring in the director of global macro. good morning, what's your assessment of the economy? >> the u.s. economy continues to be in a mid cycle expansion. things look pretty good there.
the rest of the world or the market has been tightening and keith has been talking about that as well and i think this was the reason why the fed, you know, sort of blinked in september and why it will probably do so again in december. so, you know, the dollar is strong and foreign exchanges around the world driven by china and spreading in the market. that's a form of market tightening and the fed looks at that and they should and this is why the fed is on hold. the u.s. economic picture continues to be pretty good. maria: what's your call to clients? how do you translate that into allocating capital? >> so, emerging markets, energy, equities, commodities, even high yield corporate bonds are pretty attractive valuation. whether we get a catalyst to really move them yet or not remains to be seen. what we tell investigators, kind of stay the course, the u.s. market is pretty fairly valued at 18 times trailing earnings. i think that price will do what
earnings do, ex-energy we're in that sort of boring market you don't have high expectations, but i don't see like a big selloff coming either. >> what does the day look like in terms of fidelity. it's a sector variance perspective. you have the huge move up in oil and gas stocks and biotech, and everyone has been rightly owning those stocks for a long time. what does a day like that look like to you? >> the last few days after the market double bottomed and sprang up. on the bad jobs number. >> that kind of rotation was highly predictable because energy was so oversold and of course, biotech is the sec lahr secular growth and energy is the poster child of cyclical growth. that is likely, whether it has legs or something is another story.
>> not a lot of people are positioned for that setup now. >> i think that gets so in the weeds for me, sitting at home and here is ben bernanke, eloquently tells maria in that great interview, he cited the number one thing he cited after pointing to a growing u.s. economy was the headline unemployment rate, does that make you comfortable, the fact that he cited the drop from 10 to 5% over that period of time, when so many are challenging that headline, unemployment rate, considering the underemployment rate has gone up, and the number of people working part-time has gone up and quite frankly, people don't feel that great about the economy? >> well, i mean, you know, his point, i think, is about, you know, the speed limit where the economy reaches its inflation threshold and of course, i think a lot of academics think it's around 5, but then, like you said, the u-3 versus the u-6 and unemployment, with a narrow unemployment rate and underemployment rate and there's slack there. make it's not five, maybe it's four, but generally speaking
it's calling it right that the economy has improved significantly, but there's still a lot of structural issues, you know, wages aren't growing enough, and so, chances are that we may not be at that inflation threshold for a while, which, again, the silver lining is that that allows the fed to kind of stay on hold and listen to the market signals which have been sending a different story. >> how do you get to, you know, the fidelity. you run global research basically and fidelity is very good at boiling it down for people. when you start talking about neru and the academic kind of relationships, the phillips curb, is broken. former relationships versus reality of investing today. do you find that to be a challenge? >> it's always a challenge to explain things in a way that make sense to the average investor. you know, we have a lot of investors who are not really investors by defaultment they've made their money raising a certain--
we try to explain it in a way that makes sense. ultimately it comes down to having a plan that makes sense for where you are, in your life, what your retirement age is, what your assets are and then basically sticking to the plan so you don't do what you shouldn't be doing. >> and the plan is different for everyone. >> are you seeing that clientele being risk adverse. what are you seeing from the clientele? >> our clientele is pretty much stay the course. since '09 the s&p has gone up over 20% on a compounded annual growth basis, this year it's flat to down, but the six years of doing that after five years that are super, super strong, really shouldn't concern anyone who has a long-term horizon. maria: despite the fact that the imf downgraded again. a new poll shows good news for joe biden and dr. ben carson. we will bring it to you next.
>> welcome back, new quinnipiac polls showing vice-president joe biden and ben carson, the two at the top as best general election candidates in florida, pennsylvania, and al amato, thank you for joining us. what do you think, looking at these two at the top? >> well, look, carson is definitely anti-establishment and he does it with class.
you know, he's a gentleman. people love that. he's not the same old-same old. you know, his saying, he's been criticized. they criticize him a lot. you know? when he said about a muslim president, and then he went to speak about sharreya being the problem. that kind of cut him off, but if you ever-- if he were allowed to explain fully, you'd say, yeah, well, i'm not going to be supportive of anyone, forget about their religious beliefs if they are going to try to run the country according to that belief, the answer is no. i think most people understand that. maria: and voters by the way. they shoot at him, but the other day he said listen if i were there i would have fought, i wouldn't let this guy shoot me. well, is that common sense? wouldn't you hope you'd have the presence of mind, easy to say something -- so people are tired of political correctness and that's why you see carson,
that's why you see trump, sanders, what do you think he's doing so well for? he's shocked everybody. no one, none of the political prognosticators thought he would pick up so much steam and then, of course, hillary is bleeding, you know why? you can't trust her? you say she's bleeding and yet, she's at the top of the polls? >> well, she's top of the polls now. and remember, the race hasn't really started. maria: you can't believe the polls now? >> no, they're going to change, they will definitely change, the flavor of the month kind of thing and people come up and down, but i think that carson has the ability to stay there for a while. maria: you do. >> and trump epitomizes the anti-government, anti-same old way, failure. immigration policy, we have none. 40 years, it's not just democrats, it's democrats and republicans, and obama has
exacerbated it. he's horrific on domestic policy, horrific foreign policy, what foreign policy do we have? don: well-- >> we get smacked around a lot. what do you think about the difference. can a silent calvin coolidge win the presidency in this country or do you have to be meteor ready? >> supporting the quiet guy on the republican said because i saw john kasich the governor of ohio, somebody of substance who understands, who is well-regarded and has done a great job both in congress with the budget. maria: great job on the budget. >> and at home in ohio, took a failing state, turned it around. sandra: is he still in the game? he hasn't-- >> he's got to break out in order to resonate, right? >> he has to break out and i think he has to be more aggressive and not be afraid. he's got to be more like donald.
sandra: the dark horse when it started. maria: that's what i thought. he handled himself so well in the debates, but, still, i don't see the traction i was expecting, actually. >> number one, he needs money, all right, in order to project and get his message out there and move around, et cetera, he got in a little late. and number two, i think he has to be more aggressive and, you know, he's probably watching and saying, my god, you're supporting me. [laughter] >> part of the problem, senator, part of the knock on him is that he's very smart and accomplished, but he's undisciplined whereas a candidate like donald trump, who is undisciplined, it works for him. for somebody like kasich he might be perceived as too much all over the map? >> i think that people have not really taken a look at him because how do you grab the attention? and that's what he has to do. so, what gives him, what does it? i say go after hillary, i say go after the foundation.
maria: highlight the economy and jobs, how about that? >> he could say i want to do for this country what i did when i was budget chairman and what i've done for the state of ohio. maria: exactly, that will resonate. senator, great to see you. senator al amato. we're talking with the ceo of draftkings next.
>> welcome back, we're about 40 minutes away from the opening bell. nicole petallides, off to the new york stock exchange, expecting a higher opening? >> the dow pointed to an open of more than 110 points. we're going to watch a name, maria, yum! brands, which is under pressure, down 15 and 18% overnight and came out with quarterly numbers and that the ceo is noting the recovery in china since the scandal in 2014
is slower than expected and as a result, cutting going forward to 2015. earnings per share, it's going to be below our target of at least 10% growth. so with that, the parent of k.f.c. and pizza hut. maria: catch nicole every weekd weekday, nicole and lauren, before mornings with maria. it's a scandal that rocked the sports world. an employee of draftkings is accused of insider trading after he won on fanduel. and a company that 21st century fox has as the parent company of fox business. >> thanks for having me. maria: can you explain what went on here? >> first, i want to make it clear to everyone that we're
committed to creating an open and transparent environment, having the trust of our customers that the game is fair is everything to us. and we have done everything, i think, to investigate this incident and have very clearly found through evidence that we pulled, records of when data was sent to this employee that there was absolutely no wrongdoing here. it's a little disappointing that the reports a that came out did know the account for those facts and unfortunately, dragged this individual's name through the mud and he's a good kid. his name is ethan, he works really hard and i just find it disappointing that in order to have a very important discussion, which we're open to having, how we can do a better job creating a trusted and open environment for everyone, it's just unfortunate to me that somebody who was innocent had to be smeared in order to have that discussion. maria: that's a fair point, jason, but we know the allegations that that person was using inside information
and how did he do that? i mean, what are you doing to ensure that fraud. >> he didn't. maria: you say there's absolutely no wrongdoing here. can you explain that? >> no, absolutely not. yeah, so, we have great records of when data is pulled, when communications are sent. so, it's quite easy for us to go and pull those records and what we found was that he was sent this data after his lineup was locked on fanduel so he had no ability to edit it. so couldn't possibly have been a situation where that data was useful to him in setting that lineup. we have contracted a third party law firm conducting an independent investigation and as soon as we have a summary of the findings, we'll share them. we're confident from the internal investigation that this person did nothing wrong. his name is dragged through the mud, he's a young kid, working hard and when someone innocent is vilified it's tragic to watch. >> i completely get that.
at the end of the day people that work hard that are young also make mistakes and i think that people here, and being a user of draftkings, i love the product and love the idea i think you guys are onto something, obviously, that is ground-breaking here, how do you get back to the trust of it all? when people see a system and they see a lot of money changing hands and they have a very competitive environment, think of wall street, that's why this resonates with maria and i. like, how do you get the trust back that people shouldn't see this as an opaque system that it's accountable and trance worthy. maria: we're going to wait, because there's an issue with the feed because we lost jason and the reason you ask that, it's taken off, people want to know answers as far as what the information was. >> on our research floor at hedgeye everybody plays draftkings, and the discussion came about, why should i trust
it. if you lost for three weeks in a row, i lost because somebody is cheating. >> jason robbins, we'll fix the kink here and come back with jason robins after this break. this is an opportunity to right that wrong. the idea was to bring capital into the affordable housing space in south africa, with a fund that offers families of modest income safe and good accommodation. citi got involved very early on and showed an enormous commitment. and that gave other investors confidence. citi's really unique, because they bring deep understanding of what's happening in africa. i really believe we only live once, and so you need to take an idea that you have and go for it. you have the opportunity to say,
"i've been part of the creation of over 27,000 units of housing," and to replicate this across the entire african continent. hi. hi. hello. hi. hi. hi. hi my name's josh. kelly. my name is raph. steve. my name is anne. tom. brian. krystal. and i am definitely not a robot. i'm one of the real live attorneys you can talk to through legalzoom. whether it's for your business or your personal life, don't let unanswered legal questions hold you up. because we're here. we're here, we're here, and we've got your back. legalzoom. legal help is here.

>> welcome back. we're back with jason robbins, the ceo of draftkings. sorry about that. keith was asking you about the trust issue, you continue to say there's absolutely no wrongdoing here, but you've got to explain this to us, jason, because we know that that person in question was looking at information not available to other people. he made all of that money on fanduel after he put his picks out there. so, how do you respond to these allegations that he had information that nobody else had? >> so, the person was sent information after he was no longer able to make any changes to his lineup on fanduel. the information that he was sent was definitely information
that contained utilization on players that should not have been posted publicly and that was an error, a mistake that was made and he will certainly be hearing about that from us, but that was not something. maria: could it be that information. >> it's kind of like on wall street, jason. >> it was inside information, but received after he was no longer to make any-- >> he didn't act on it. >> he couldn't have possibly acted on it. sandra: people are sitting at home saying, if you had that flaw in your system, what other flaws do you have in your system and how exposed are they? >> so, i think that this is an important discussion and you know, i am very much open and i have started actually, before any of this happened, we had already contracted, along with fanduel, to have a third party come in and do a full audit of our procedures, make sure this ifs there's any places to get better, we can do. we're a young company, been around three and a half years
and i think we've done a good job putting strong policies and procedures in place they can get better and i know that. there's a lot of work that we put behind this, it's important that everyone out there knows there's the highest integrity in our games and the competition is fair and work tirelessly. maria: have you heard from the nfl? >> about this? >> yes. >> no, i haven't heard from the nfl. >> my question before i got cut off there, how do you convince a user like me, that young guys won't make mistakes with the fanduel and the draft system? >> i think a few things, first,is getting the accurate story out today, i hope today is helping to do. i am disappointed that the facts were not accurately reported, but i appreciate all of you taking the time to come and share the real truth.
secondly, i do think that, and we evaluated this and discussed it with the rest of the industry, my personal opinion is that no matter how many times i tell you guys that we have controlled and procedures in place it's still going to be a question asked and the satisfactory answer is just to completely prohibit employees from playing on each other's sites. we've never allowed any of the employees to play on the public games on draftkings and it's clear they shouldn't play on any of the competitors site. a policy in place. and thirdly we're going to be employing a third party, it started the work, to do a full audit of our procedures to make sure if there are any places with he can get better that we do, and lastly, we're going to fully cooperate with any inquirie inquiries. sandra: have people been canceling their memberships? >> no, not at all. we haven't seen that and, you know, i think naturally people want some answers and that's what we're trying to do and they want to know that we're
committed to the integrity of our games, nothing it more important to us. i think it's going to be a good experience when it's said and done, it will motivate everybody to work harder. a good thing. maria: jason robbins, thanks so much. thanks, everybody, a great day. stuart varney is next. have a good show. >> thank you, maria. maria: that doesn't sound like stuart. it doesn't like like stuart. >> i'm stuart in spirit today. thanks a lot. maria: i'm sorry, charles. >> the real stuart-- >> i don't see you before we come to you and i need somebody to tell me that you're-- i mean, like i'm going to watch double now. >> that's okay, we want you to watch no matter what, thanks, maria, appreciate it and by the way, stuart will be back tomorrow. in the meantime, we've got an amazing story for you. isis trying to get their hands on nuclear weapons, that's right, gangs affiliated with the
