6:05 am
thank you so much for joining us this morning, what are your observations a week after the horrible attack in paris? >> i think we are seeing a national conversation, maria, where -- and reminds me of 2006 when critics of the bush administration and the iraq policy started to come out of the woodwork. over the weekend in the last few days we have seen former secretary gates and former secretary of defense all come out and say that our current strategy is not working and we have to step things up.that's gf pressure on the administration to do more and talk less. >> maria: do you think the obama strategy will get sharper as it relates to isis? >> well, i only think time will tell. the fact that the president said our goal is to defeat isis, he came right out and said that as oppose to degrade or any other word. i mean, you know, the american people are going to remember this.
6:06 am
as we go into elections in 2016, they keep saying they are going to defeat isis, they put a lot of pressure on his party to defend their record. >> keith: that's nice of them to say to defeat isis. i just wanted to -- strategically do you think he's checked out so hillary can look stronger on foreign policy? >> you know, i don't know, the fact is that when you send in 50 special operators, only 50, that's just not enough. air strikes, you know, we have a lot that are flying but a lot of those aren't dropping ordinance. it's going to take more whether it requires building a coalition or empower soonie muslims.
6:07 am
if they don't go out to isis in raqqa, they're really not doing enough. >> dagen: how does this play out in the presidential race and you mentioned hillary clinton. we saw in the latest polls that you have ben carson falling back a little bit and certainly seems like national security is not his strongest suit, do you think that this becomes more of an issue as evidence in that fox news poll about the number one issue for people? >> well, it is right now, dagen, you are stock expertsz. -- experts. i don't know whether national security is going to be the number one thing. i suspect it would be. you see marco rubio and laying out a specific plan which has layed out before about impowering soonie muslims in the area, hitting critical infrastructure, calling
6:08 am
backgrounds and in sharp contrast to what the administration is not doing. >> maria: we will see you soon, sir. by the way, you know, so far, guys the market has not reacted to this in any way, look at those numbers that ashley was showing. down 57% restaurants. down in double digits in terms of shopping. that's the kind of stuff that wakes up markets. >> keith: has the ability to sniff out getting these terrorists, though, it's almost like wow, we have the bad situation but the end of the day it's going to be over. that's a big part of last week's rally. at the end of the day the companies have to report retail sales, holiday sales. this, i don't think the a win. >> dagen: it's very france specific. i hope it's self-correcting with the euro weakening it's been
6:09 am
attractive to traveling overseas. if you sea airfares come down you will see a shift in travel. >> kevin: we have seen that from other attacks that have happened. it only delays consumer spending habits. it doesn't impact them over long-term. it would be alarming if we saw the numbers a quarter from now. we haven't returned. but what we see is immediate reaction from governments. >> maria: pfizer and allergan agreed to merge. it's going to be the biggest deal of the year. the stock in cash deal to create the world's largest drug maker. it will also relocate pfizer headquarters to ireland cutting the tax rate for pfizer from 25 to 15%. actually, i did read somewhere
6:10 am
else a couple of months ago that allergan paid under 10%. >> keith: yeah. look at what the u.s. could do. instead of arguing back and forth, down 3%, s&p is up 1. if you have a good week -- >> maria: that's right? i didn't check that. >> keith: corporates have fiduciary responsibility to find you and they will go there. i salute the irish. [laughter] >> dagen: they specifically have cut -- it is a special tax on research and development of product, any product. they are more and more aggressive about lowering their corporate tax rates. >> kevin: here is the crazy part that comes out of the deal. pfizer is looking to save $2 billion in taxes next year
6:11 am
alone from doing this. but that's even bigger than viagra sales which are looking $1.9 billion, that is a really staggering number. that goes back to showing that the u.s. needs to do something about their tax policies. i mean, the fed is taking all the way to here. even if we can export the money back here. there's so much the congress can do. >> maria: two-thirds of the voters want tax reform. the number one issue for congress. [laughter] >> dagen: hillary clinton came out with more and more tax breaks to people, resident spending programs. >> maria: she's also raising, what is it, capital gains taxes, doubling them. >> dagen: making it more

6:23 am
he is followed by ted cruz and marco rub i. both of them are at 14. just four points behind. on democratic side, steady support for hillary clinton, she is supported by 55% of democrats and holds a 23-point lead over sanders. when pitted against the top republicans in the field, clinton loses to six of the top seven. here are the five. you could see the arrow, red arrow pointing down. marco rubio has the widest margin. even donald trump, should it end up being trump versus clinton, he shows a 5-point edge. certainly a good news for trump this morning. >> maria: so you're saying all those people would beat hillary
6:24 am
in a matchup? >> blake: they would all beat hillary. the only one is carly fiorina who ties clinton. all top hillary. >> keith: the spread of that does imply that trump is less likely to beat hillary head to head than even rubio for that matter? >> blake: clinton had been top on trump. he flipped that in the last weeks or so. had you been looking at that number in august or september it would have been clinton on top and now closer to the new year is trump on top. >> maria: interesting. they were saying that the democrats were most afraid of rubio. right, that was the talk. >> keith: yeah, of course. you have intelligent immigrant who can communicate on foreign policy. >> maria: he has the latino vote
6:25 am
. >> kevin: he's also unrelatable. you put marco rubio against her, the guy has charisma, comes across very well. going back, the way he handle jeb bush. >> keith: don't forget that hillary lost to a younger man before and his name is barack obama. that generational difference is misunderstood. >> dagen: with national security and terrorism front in center in the minds of voters, maybe she will actually end up paying for what happened in libya and benghazi where you remove go gedafi . i think rubio's plan, look at jeb bush.
6:26 am
ben carson, that area of his resume needs a lot of work but certainly jeb bush and marco rubio are very strongly. >> keith: he came in here and i thought was the most presidential as he looked. >> maria: he came out obviously during that very important moment when we were all looking for leadership from the president by the way. let's take a short break. it's going to create the world's largest drug maker. we are looking at pfizer-allergan. back in a minute. ♪ ♪ ♪ type 2 diabetes doesn't care who you are.

mocking jay part 2 took the top spot with 101 million sales weakest opening for the entire hunger game series. back on wall street, pfizer, reportedly agreeing to merge in a deal worth better than 150 billion dollars that creates a world largest drug maker. high or on the news i want to bring in right now jpmorgan head of equity strategy thank you for joining us. you've liked it the whole year. >> recovering somewhat. i think this deal solidifies our stance that m and l are drive evaluation higherrer. for us it's really about finding earnings growth this year, when it is challenged and we think health care still looks pretty good heading into next year. >> do you think that u.s. regulators want to stock this? they don't want to lose in merck. would they? >> i think they're going to try.
6:33 am
that's been reported in the media that they're not happy about this. so we have to watch it. i think, you know, perhaps the timing of the deal getting it through so quickly might be a factor in this whole thing. i think regulatory overhangs a being part especially on m and a side a big spread in the halliburton hughes deal that is supposed to happen right now. i think that's a big thing. we saw alergan waiting for new tabs aversion rules those were -- >> aversion is smaller company is buying bigger one to get the tax treatment. >> american corporation will go lower tax rate and down will so they don't have to pay higher tax rates here. >> back to earning story on health care, in 2016 but we wrote a note on friday that basically we want through demographics and deflation being a potential threat to what has been a fantastic health care
6:34 am
pricing story. as you know it is 50 dwhreers we've been health care prices is there a regulatory or hillary overlay of this that concerns you? >> more volatility drug pricing debate is going to be front an center. but we've got to numbers. we have haircut drug, haircut companies that have been agrass eve in pricing and we come with the with a growth rate in 2016 that's better than overall market. this year was tough. we have 2% earnings growth more or less. overall for the market looking at 5 to 6% and health care probably couple hundred bases higher than that. so our view on the market is given more evaluation diewpght to go for earnings growth and health care is one place where that is today. >> can we see multiple expansion where that is 16 times to go to 18 too manies given that there's consolidation in the spaes that you mentioned before? >> possibly you could. but our base case is not assume multiple expansion based on the
6:35 am
fact that we're trading close to historic average in materials of multiple. much more about the earnings growth. >> we have the earnings growth in 5 to 10% because this strong dollar is reeking in copper crashing to new lows again. how do you deal with first half and second half of earnings with the setup are. >> watching the price of oil and dollar an those two things hurt by 6 to 7 percentage points. throughout 2016 both headwinds become benign. >> second half -- >> i want to know where you stand on the s&p sectors had its best week in about three years. >> yeah. >> you had names like not just home depot, t.j.maxx, stores they were on fire last week. >> one of the top picks. i have a little bit more concern into how much sectors run. if you look at what retailers
6:36 am
are saying core parallel retail ergs it is not great. so this season is one of winners and losers. you have to be positioned in e-commerce. you have to be positioned in companies that sell to the home and you have to have a hot product. >> a major luxury retailer breaks its sale tomorrow. prethanksgiving you break your major sale usually starts in december. yo this is big. and then pile on terrorism on top of that. we saw what effect that's having on paris restaurants and stores. you have to believe if there's a freeze out there that people are afraid of terrorists they're not going to shop. >> you have to be sensitive to retailers who rely on tourism and retailers with exposure in europe so something we're watching for. >> tough for modties. ole and copper getting a big hit. florida at the group right now. phil. reporter: gorge it good morningt
6:37 am
is about terror and rushing across the board. yes it's about dollar, demand expectation. take a look at copper, six-year low we have nickel hit limit down today so another market that hit the low test level that we've seen since 2003. in a combination of factors. you can't put your finger on just one thing. you can point to the dollar, you can point to the federal reserve. talking about razeeing interest rates, we have the fed president jim williams this weekend saying that a december rate hike is more than likely but a strong case for that. but will that case change if we continue it see the depressure. a wild start to the day. oil, of course, the key they think for that is to see if it can close below 40 one they think that hangt been able to do since the chinese stock market crash so we'll see what happens today maria. >> glad you connected dots to china. because that's a big story of cop or phil.
6:38 am
right now, keith you heard about this this morning copper is crash. down 1.8% alone. >> so we have oil down 30% but copper down 30% for the year today. if you ga back to july when storkt it was levitating commodities started to dislocate from that. big length that we've been looking at is deflation to earnings so earnings deflation these things are uniquely and intimately linked at this stage of cycle again i would be surprised if people remain complacent at this pervasiveness in the destates for me. >> you look at copper breaking your two is a big single especially on global growth so that's indicating numbers out of china in the emerging markets that they're slowing down and pretty significantly right. so in showing that u.s. is coupled from global growth. right we're growing over here. but 40 dollar a barrel oil puts the most efficient operators in a bind.
6:39 am
can you imagine all of the nonefficient operators? >> that's a big deal. if you look at last week and the dow you would say stocks are up. but mlp that is a lever space to what yowx, they were down over 1.55% last week they're down 30% for the year to date and a lot of people in high net earth earn for yield. >> we've been selective in energy space and underway to material space so we're not concerned with what's happening to copper. i think it goes back to transsession in china away from manufacturing and industrial led my to consumption it is not bringing demand back. >> your position that way. a lot of guys mess this up. they were long value and cyclical space and didn't get that side right. that's a good position to be in. >> copper is an industrial metal to used in what -- homes? building houses, producing cars. i mean, it's a real industrial metal which is very indicative of the global economy. >> it wasn't just that maria. last week we have nickel another
6:40 am
one down 5% of the week. it is down 40% for the year to dat. that's even worse. >> also industrial. >> i scoff at gold it doesn't tell you anything but what people are buying and selling. >> gold is not. is money. gold is, you know, ahead. >> uncertain times we're starting to get into the tax here. but does that -- >> gold is falling, though. >> copper price help home builders because we vnt seen them gain eat over the last quarter but copper so low, the cost for their buildings is really -- >>ening for builders that's a demand story in the u.s. and demand for housing that is strong. so ting there's some opportunity there. we're not stepping in and buying material stock and select eve in energy right now. because i think the price could go lower because there's a lot of people that can't make money at current levels but take time to come out of the market. so probably another three to six months ahead it have choppy waters. thank you so much for joining us.

7:04 am
we are hearing reports that he was, indeeding spotted in the belgium city at about 7:30 p.m. last night. he managed to elude capture. he was last seen headed to jordan. the police believe that at some point his luck is going to run out, prosecutors saying today they arrested a total of 21 people from a series of raids overnight by both police and army, but so far has not turned up any of the wanted terrorists, just people wanted for questioning. paris police meanwhile have put out the photograph of a person that they were trying to identify and are asking for the public's help. the third suicide bomber. he had papers on him, identifying him m al mamoud. they are trying to find out who this person is.
7:05 am
they do believe he slipped into france after pretending to be a syrian refugee with another jihadist coming through greece in early october. as you mentioned earlier, british prime minister david cameroon meeting with french president françois hollande, they visit it had concert hall where people lost their lives in attacks, also calling for unity and cooperation and the sharing of intelligence as they try and track down the terrorists that they believe are operating as we speak, maria, back to you. >> maria: all right, ashley, with the very latest in paris. we'll get back to you ashley. joining us right now maverick, morgan. >> i think it's no surprise that terrorism is up and the economy are the biggest concerns among voters. i think it clearly goes -- when you were looking at president
7:06 am
obama's polls, they go hand in hand. not convinced that he is doing the job that they need. >> keith: if you look at what trump said over the weekend, it's almost like he wanted his daddy to treat him fairly. is it game time or are we going to have a real debate and people are going to attack him on tangible issues like the economy? >> morgan: what he did is what everyone does whenever they're not in the lead, they attack the biggest enemy. what he is saying now, what i said earlier, it's called politics. this is what happened. you get hit. this is how every presidential race is one and fought and lost. as i said on your program many times, what i'm more concerned about in the year, somebody, hillary, jeb, whoever, russia, iran, it's time to have a very serious conversation about who has the temperament and not who is going to run for a third party.
7:07 am
this whole stuff is ridiculous. >> dagen: this plays into trump's style because the american people, which you see in these fox news polls, are tired of a president and democratic leaders that will not refer to radical islamic terrorism. so trump is a natural kind of opposite or just positioned to the lack of language that you're getting or the lack of what people want to hear getting from the administration. you get -- you might be getting tougher tone from donald trump. >> morgan: i totally agree, dagen. they're afraid of terrorism. they're afraid of what's happening globally and they want someone who is going to stand up and win and somebody who is going to defeat.
7:08 am
>> keith: bomb the hell out of it it's po -- polarizing as obama take the weekend off. >> morgan: he had 27 different flag officers that came out and supported him. excuse me flag offers. i think the people that have come out with clear plans, jeb bush, even chris christie. the rest has been politics. >> maria: can they beat hillary? >> morgan: i think she has -- what's interesting to me in the past two weeks, specially since last debate, she consolidated her base. an early states, excuse me, she's pretty much locked up in terms of infrastructure and having people on the ground. the concerns of terrorism and
7:09 am
the democratic party have just totally knocked bernie sanders off of his beat. >> 92% tax rate. [laughter] >> kevin: we are seeing whatever donald trump is doing continues to work. he doesn't need to change the course. they expect this from dt. they expect him to be -- say crazy absurd things. >> morgan: interesting he's talking about as an independent. >> maria: we keep hearing stories that the republicans want to get him out of the lead and that they're going to launch this attack. i think that's what he's reacting. >> morgan: the people launching the attacks, governor kasich are competitors. >> maria: you don't think traditional rnc wanting him out?
7:10 am
>> morgan: i haven't seen any signs of that. considering the poll numbers are so high, rnc should want to back whomever. >> maria: you would think so. >> morgan: iowa and new hampshire and i think that it's -- iowans are still deciding. >> keith: trump has never really tested. i want to be treated fairly. he was born on third base and tells the whole world that he earned it. rubio is going to take him to task. the treat me fairly. you're mr. big time why do you need to be treated so fairly? >> morgan: what you face in the primary and political campaign is far less serious than what you face as president.
7:11 am
the challenge is the next president is going to face pails in comparison. so the point of me saying that, you have to be able to handle this stuff because it's going to get a lot worse. >> maria: what did you think object obama and secretary clinton in the face of those paris attacks? >> morgan: i saw the secretary gave a pretty weak response. i think that she has to say why she's still in president. she can't run against him. anyone who has known hillary or her people it's not really in her heart to give response to terrorism. i think, i kind of have no words for the president's response. nothing that i would say on television.

7:23 am
>> maria: what's more important, steven, the drop in commodities or the huge deal in the pharmaceutical sector? >> it is a central bankers world. the european bank is a central and the united states. so the commodity situation reduces inflation pressures which means the fed is going to go up next month, they feel like they can but in the future very slow and europe is going to do another round. it's positive for risk asset. >> keith: isn't that the cat lis. the saudis are the central catalyst for the markets. are you remiss not to call what it is? >> you were just describing. this is the world in which we live.

8:33 am
investigate the targeting of the coal industry. i want to bring in robert murray. thank you for joining us. your suit comes at a time when the president's ratings are at an all-time low. what do you want to happen here? >> well, the president's so-called clean power plan, maria, is really a no power plan. recent studies show that it will raise electric rates in the united states between 22 and 30. and 45 states will have double-digit electricity rate increases. 25 states will have 15% increases. maria, 115 million americans get energy assistance right now. half of the world's seven billion people do not have access to reliable low co cost electricity.
8:34 am
half the homes in india don't have a light bulb. and the president and his followers are a destroying, reliable, low cost electricity in the world in america for no environmental benefit whatsoever, ma'am. maria: so what do you want to do about environmental issues? what do you want to do about carbon emissions in the air? >> well, first of all, we filed six lawsuits against the obama administration. murray energy has been joined by 27 states now, maria. they agree with me that what he has done in bypassing the states, in bypassing the utility commissions, in bypassing the house and senate and putting the epa in charge of electricity is totally illegal. that's what we have done and we will overturn this no power plan. dagen: bob, assuming, it's just a guess, let's say a republican
8:35 am
wins the white house in a year, doesn't that -- can you survive that long? can you get through that long? couldn't a republican president roll back these initiatives and regulations? >> the coal industry is bankrupt, maria. we lack 45 billion dollars in funding our liabilities right now as a whole. it's questionable whether the industry can survive and it certainly won't survive it intact the way it is now. we have to get a new president. we have to overturn this, but it's more than just the coal industry, ma'am. he's destroying reliable low cost electricity for people who want to manufacture a product for the global marketplace. maria: we're looking at the coal company stock prices down since january of 2009. let me ask you to explain to our viewers the epa regulations
8:36 am
and why they're so onerous. bob? what do you think is the worst part of this epa regulation? by the way, you're not the only industry complaining about the epa rule making and the most recent rules. so tell us what's so onerous. >> what's so onerous, ma'am, is that obama administration is putting the u.s. epa in charge of our electric power grid. they have no expertise at all in regulating in the electric power grid. he's using a section of the 1971 clean air act in a totally he will legal way and we actually have six lawsuits. we'll overturn the no power plan because we already won one of those six cases before the supreme court. maria: is it the cost that's so onerous, the cost or a whole new set of rules to follow? >> it's not just the cost, maria. the 214 billion dollar cost, that's just part of it, ma'am.

8:44 am
when workers take time to be with their newborns, it's better for their families and gives employees in the u.s. as many as four months as paid maternity or paternity leave within the first year a child is born. right now the u.s. government does not require paying leave after a child is born for any company. so, it's part of the ongoing competition, too, i would say between amazon and google and the different companies that they look, we're going to help you out when you have a kid. >> earlier in the show i was too aggressive and i think i called i am lame -- him lame for ceo. since fox dominates now, i'm going to take two months off because of the success. maria: you're not allowed. you're part of it. >> and i do put my children first. we bond instead of being here at 6:00 in the morning, we'll bond and have a wonderful time. so, thanks for the idea, mr. zuckerberg. >> a great company takes care

8:46 am
itchy fingers, knowing the way he's left the company he's going to want to work. maria: he's not going to sign off. >> an interesting point, what do you think about that? we're in the air of it's different this time, super young ceo's who are actually at this point in their life where they really think about it differently by virtue of their aid. jo: you can do some comparing and contrasting. marisa mayer took a leave and she was criticized for not taking enough leave and she built a nursery next to her office. zuckerberg is saying this is my decision. there's no one named in the interim while i'm going. dagen: i think he's doing it in part for a publicity stunt. attention and promotion. jo: i don't know if it's a publicity stunt, but by sharing it-- . dagen: hey, i'm taking two
