6:02 am
poll to date at 24. marco rubio and dr. ben carson continue to be the only others in double digits. now while trump continues to lead the republican pack, listen to this, maria, his appeal nationwide appears to be a different matter, this poll show that is 50% of american voters say they would be embarrassed to have a potential president trump running the country. roughly a third of voters feel the exact same way about hillary clinton who lead her side of the field with a commanding 61%. now, trump held aurally last night in michigan drawing thousands of supporters. trump kept up the pressure for claiming that isis is using recruiting videos of him while also trump did resuming attacks on fellow republicans. here it was. >> the last person that she wants to run against is me, believe me. ask all of the guy that is have gone out. do they enjoy running against
6:03 am
trump. they don't enjoy it. i enjoy it. >> blake: trump continued to lay off of cruz who is shaping up to be his closest competitor, we have seen in iowa. >> maria: wow, blake, thank you. blake berman with the latest there. morgan, let's talk about this. voters says they are embarrassed yet he continues to lead in the polls, what's your take? >> morgan: we often talk about how the state-by-state polls have a different picture. for many months a lot of us have try toddies puit the fact, but there's still quite a commanding lead. it's interesting that 50% said they would be embarrassed. the question for me is how long did donald trump let cruz continue to rise and not go after him and not hit him.
6:04 am
>> maria: what's going on trump and cruz. do they have some agreement? >> morgan: a lot of people are speculating that there is. cruz is smart and handsoff completely. when he was caught for criticizing trump in private, no, that's not true, i think he's brought a lot to the discussion. i think -- i don't know if there's a specific deal but there's -- there's certainly something going on, we will see how long it last. >> maria: mike. >> mike: he would be the only one that backs trump. i think that's part of his plan. i think he's out there. he doesn't mind embarrassing people. he wants to shock people. but i would wonder how many people of those people embarrassed by trump how many are embarrassed by our current leader? >> maria: that's a great point. >> mike: trump embarrassing people or people being embarrassed of him, that plays
6:05 am
what donald trump is trying to do and the numbers back it up. >> maria: they say they're embarrassed in polls, but when they get into the voting booth, they're going to vote for him. yeah, we will see about that. in terms of the field right now, do you expect a major change after iowa and new hampshire? >> morgan: i do. if we go to iowa and donald trump doesn't win iowa. so if you're going into iowa and let's just say trump loses to cruz to iowa and i think trump losing potentially losing in iowa gives the voters of the new hampshire sort of the out to vote for someone else and not go for trump. and if he loses iowa and new hampshire, he's still ahead in national polls, when you see what's going on in the ground on iowa and new hampshire it's different from sort of the national landscape. >> mike: new hampshire is a make or break state for chris christie, he was able to get a
6:06 am
little bit of momentum. there's still a lot of supporters there. you can debate whether it's run to the best that it could have been. if christie can get a little momentum in new hampshire it's hard to predict the stuff because it's really early. we don't talk about ben carson anymore. just a few weeks ben carson was leading and now fallen way off the race. >> morgan: he's still at 10% and rubio at 12. you have the cruz, trump, carson wing that takes way over 50% of the primary voters. you have christie, rubio, bush and kasich fighting who recollects can bring the two sides together. that's the fundamental argument in the republican primary. is there anybody like a george w bush who can bring the caucuses together? >> maria: we will see about that. fox news with new data on social media and terrorism showing voters are split on the fact
6:07 am
that obama administration does not screen social media when doing background checks. 32% say that it makes sense with more on the issue of privacy and cybersecurity let's bring peter, general counsel. it's bizarre that we would not be looking at social media when vetting people when coming to the country. >> that should be fair game. i think private e-mail is something really quite different. >> maria: yeah, what about that? >> it's really part of the dynamic between priest cri and security. that dynamic is profoundly based on the mood of the country whether in europe or the united states, security concerns have
6:08 am
to rise and privacy has to abait somewhat under that dynamic, and times of peace and prosperity you have have a inversion of that. >> maria: i can see how backseat takes fierce of national security. what about responsibility that technology companies have in order to overseeing data so that they can better track terrorists? >> peter: one of the astonishing is threat. iran ains are allegedly trying to breech into a dam. the escalation has been dramatic, even several years ago the main news was about the theft of credit cards, retailers that were in the news, tens of millions of credit cards, but that threat is not that substantial because banks could
6:09 am
cut off the credit cards and consumers weren't responsible for the personal fraud. >> maria: right. >> peter: it stepped up to social security numbers. i want something that's more lasting, you only get one social security. that was really the healthcare fraud that you saw. once you have an individual's social security number you can commit tax fraud, you can commit false healthcare claims and so really the world that we are now dealing with is critical infrastructure. >> maria: this is what tim cook was saying, basically if you allow government to have this back door into overseeing people's data then there's a back door, that's a back door for the good guys and the bad guys. we have to push back and not allow the government to have open field in communication. >> mike: that's not the last we heard of this issue. he was going to stand his ground. at the same time it's a different world we live in today. we know there are terrorists coming to this country to attack
6:10 am
us and if there are internet companies or social media companies or any company that may potentially have an advance knowledge of that, i think there has to be some way for the government to get notified of that. we need our nights but need to protect ourselves. >> morgan: hillary clinton said that he wants manhattan project for encryption. do you know what she meant by that? >> peter: there's also good news that last week was actually one of the biggest developments in the cyber world with the passage of the cybersecurity information sharing act, so for the first time now business and the government is really being encouraged to actively share cyber threat indicators back and forth. so this is the type of thing that has to happen between industry on the one hand and government on the other, whether the issue is encryption, the
6:11 am
sharing of spear-fishing campaigns or the latest form of attack. there just has to be a good-faith exchange between the industry and the government fundamentally. >> maria: what does that mean in terms of peoples' privacy and data? >> peter: the most common form of attack is the spear-fishing campaign. they go in your linked in ats, they find out when your birthday is and what college you went to and send you an e-mail, maria, happy birthday, here are your best wishes, here is a shot of our reunion. by clicking on it you install malware or malicious software. when you enter in the morning, they know your password. once they know your log-in
6:12 am
credentials they can go like a spider. >> maria: that's scary stuff. you don't know where -- when it ends. >> morgan: i'm speaking to a friend that works in cyber yesterday. in terms of security that the terrorists are using encrypted software in order to communicate. so if that sort of the bottom line, don't the social media companies have responsibility here and what should they be doing to work with government to counter it in. >> peter: one interesting way to look at it is the dynamic in europe. the historical divide between continents. europe has been just the opposite, privacy is perceived as a core human right and so that has been in the right to be forgotten decisions that the tech companies don't like in europe, but now in the wake of the terrorist attacks both the charlie attacks in january and the horrific attacks of last month, that dynamic has to change.
6:13 am
the privacy has to subside in some measure as people are legitimate concerned about their safety. >> maria: you would think so. thank you so much for joining us. peter bashar this morning. coming off we have liftoff six months after an explosion derailed plans, successfully landed falcón rocket. take a look at the big name calling old news. will be back in a moment. ♪ ♪ ♪

6:22 am
[bell] >> maria, what do you say. >> phil: we must have been good boys and girls this year. they are coming just in time for christmas. if you look at overall oil prices they are stabilizing just a bit this morning mainly because of what's happening in china, they are talking a more flexible and forceful economic policy and more stimwhruis supporting. the other thing is we are hearing nasty rumor, forecasters say we might get more normal temperatures at least increasing those chances, so the possibility of the return of winter has given the market a little support. let's face it. the market is very oversupplied. we are not getting much of a bounce and the volume seems to get relatively light. enjoy the low gasoline prices,
6:23 am
they could go lower. back to you. >> maria: thank you phil flynn. what do you think, mike, they're not spending that money in the stores, but at some point you have to believe better balance sheets pushed them to do so. >> mike: it definitely helps. they are saving $550, that's not such a bad thing either. no matter how you look at it, if it costs you half of what it used to cost, it's a huge positive. remember about a year and a half ago is no one is going to buy an suv because they can't afford to fill that up. now we are talking about gas prices under $2. i think things -- swings very far in each direction. right now we are a lot closer to a bottom than to, obviously, to a top. you are going to see -- gas ral rid 9%. -- rallied at 9%.
6:24 am
solid dividends that they say would be safe dividends. that's what i'm looking at. china's oil consumption was up over 7%. all the talk about china stop to go grow at all, there's still using a lot of oil. i think that number has a lot of significance. >> morgan: gas prices, lowered gas prices correlate with president getting bump in the polls. that's going to be clearly a lower economy would be tougher for hillary clinton, so lower gas prices will translate to a few bumps to the president that helps her going into 2016. >> maria: wow, that's interesting. people are just feeling better and attribute it to the president. >> morgan: it translates to a
6:25 am
bump to the president. >> maria: it's been interesting. there's been a range. you want to buy it at 40 and selling at 60. a lot of people weren't expecting it to drop at 35. >> mike: a lot of people are talking about breaking through 30's and getting into the 20's. to right now nobody is talking about a rebound in oil. that's what you're going to see because although we have a glut, we have a lot of oil coming up f we get a bump up in the global economy, all of that sudden that can change rapidly. >> maria: all right, we will take a short break. disney stock falling for a third day in a row. despite the opening of star wars, why the stock is going down for the numbers of star wars are going up. the force is strong and this california man programmed 70,000

6:36 am
maria: there is a knock on affect, worried about the price of oil as it relates to broader economic job cuts. >> that is valid. states like north dakota which boomed and never had a financial crisis going the other way. we have enough of the region of the country been impacted by energy to slow things down. >> the point has many negatives as there are with job cuts, there are also positives. the trickle-down into the overall economy will create more hiring. that will balance itself out. a big key to watch the stock repurchasing. they are buying back, we don't have earnings expansion, true but we do have a reduction in the number of shares which acts like earnings expansion. maria: make the buying it back. >> exactly. maria: real quick 2016, what is your assessment. what do you expect? >> i think 2016 is a good year but in the stock market single

digits, high single-digit, nothing more exciting than that because uncertainties, unless we have global cooling that is what we need to get the energy prices back, we are not going to have that. maria: you are not expecting a great stock market. >> there are pics in sectors, i like the specialty equipment in the health-care sector. i age i is the symbol, ets that captures health-care, the kinds of devices which are needed as far as the package and a good idea, we own it in our portfolios. maria: good to have you on the program. cumberland adviser chairman and chief investment officer, merry christmas, happy holiday. more trouble for jacoby, the fast-food chain has been linked to a second strain of the eagle live virus. more details on that story. nicole: absolutely right, the

6:45 am
making driverless cars a reality. mark is basically not a private equity investor in technology, google, internet related companies, he said in the next ten years there will be ten auto -- four automakers, apple, tesla and uber. >> i have read that. it is amazing. i have a hard time trying to figure that part out. he is smarter than i am. maria: somebody has to manufactured the car. >> this agreement between google and ford is not official yet but not exclusive to google his partner mr. king with ford but they can par with other people, look at a market cap of uber, still a private company, $62 billion market cat, look at google's market cap, $400 billion range. for one of these guys to buy a ford, gm, fiat, not saying it is going to happen betty's
6:46 am
feasible. look at apple. apple has $200 billion in cash, a rounding error to buy a company like ford. if they want to be in that space that is what happens. maria: a couple things going on in the market, car companies are becoming technology companies especially when you look at cybersecurity issues. when you look at his love for example is still not profitable. i think these big tech companies like google realize they need to partner with a car company like ford to make a car. they are realizing they have been working on this 3 years behind the scenes, it is harder to manufacture edie's cards and check companies anticipate. as we see with tesla interesting car, great company, not profitable. maria: hasn't gained traction in terms of the consumer. you make a good point. the technology companies need the manufacturers but the manufacturers need the technology companies too because these guys are really looking to
6:47 am
take their lunch to when you look at what uber is doing it is not just about picking people up and transportation. it is about delivery services. they are expecting, when i spoke to the ceo of uber once, he said we expect people will be buying fewer cars in the future, people who buy cars will beef leads. >> look at the uber delivery service. i use them quite often, a friend was staying with me with the keys to the house. to my housekeeper. maria: they are looking to displace not just the ford and gms of the world but annex. >> a changed the entire economy and the way it works. you can uber it. and they have changed the entire way we do business. it is the company we own in the private space. there's a lot more upside. they do something for ten dollars you can uber a nurse to
6:48 am
give you a flu shot. they're stepping in to that area. what they are doing is amazing but then you look at old companies like ford that will pay you 4% dividend to buy the stock near 52 week low so this -- i see bo of it but companies like uber that can change the way business gets done, a company you want to own with the you are lucky enough to buy it, $10,000 invested five years ago, $127. million today. maria: that is called a victory. what a return. >> one word like note xerox, now we are ubering things. coming up, the harlem globetrotters in the house making a pit stop. on the '92 than ever sorry, bringing their unrivaled family show to the studio.

6:59 am
maria: i am maria bartiroma, it is december 22nd. morgan ortega and capital ceo mike murphy. on the east coast breaking news, new national polls in the presidential race released last hour, quinnipiac survey finding donald trump in the lead with senator ted cruz closing in on him fast infarct head matchup with nominee hillary clinton, senator crews, mrs. clinton up 70 points. and the front runner, going back and forth, over clinton's claim. a recruiting tool by isis, with personal attacks on clinton yesterday. >> did you watch that?
7:00 am
what happened to her. she is terrible. she is terrible. donald trump is on video and our sisters is using him on the video to recruit. it turned out to be a lie, she is a liar. maria: latest on but race coming up. winning and a final read of third quarter gdp, we expect growth of 2% gdp ahead of that, future is basically flat, down industrials of highs 3 points, nasdaq negative, checking overseas action. the s&p a 30 points, dax index in germany up 40 points. in asia overnight, market end the day mostly higher, shanghai composite late day rally, index on track for 6% gain for the month. chipotle, one stock to watch amid new e coli concerns. the center for disease control
7:01 am
reporting five more people became sick after eating at the company restaurant in the midwest. it is still unclear what ingredients are responsible for this outbreak. airports and roads getting busier as the christmas holiday, a don't have to worry about winter weather affecting travel plans, much of the east coast will be seeing record warm temperatures, your holiday forecast is just ahead. we are looking at the nfl, we will tell you about space x. the d for it lions, 25-27, drew brees making headlines this morning, the fourth quarterback in nfl history to through for 60,000 yards in his career. brand new quinnipiac university national poll on the 2016 presidential election, blake berman in washington. good morning to you. >> donald trump, ted cruz and
7:02 am
everyone else according to the national quinnipiac university pole. and in any national poll to date can be 24. dr ben carson, the only others in double digits. the republican pack and his appeal nationwide appears to be a different matter. 50% of american voters, could be embarrassed to have a potential presidential from running the country. hillary clinton in this poll leaves her side of the field with a commanding 61%. trump held a rally in michigan drawing thousands of supporters, trump kept the pressure on clinton during the democratic debate isis is using, and senate
7:03 am
republicans. >> the last person she wants to run against is me. ask jim bush if he enjoys running against me. in all fairness, asked lindsey graham, did he enjoys running against me? asked governor perry do they enjoy running against trump, they don't enjoy it. i enjoy it, they don't enjoy it. >> on the other hand trump continued to lay on cruise this shaping up to be his closest competitor. we have been seeing that in iowa in recent weeks, national poll and the margin of error. maria: thank you so much. blake berman, thank you. donald trump taking a met hillary's 2008 primary, with barack obama in grand rapids, michigan. bring in roger stone who is involved with a trump focus super pac called the committee to restore america's greatness. what do you make of this, that
7:04 am
people are embarrassed? >> trump is going through a tough campaign for the nomination which he has been leading, hillary has been a walk in the park tower negatives will be required when she comes under attack, bernie sanders is not doing that job, her abuse of women, hypocrisy, payee quality, tenure in the state department, not on the clinton foundation, plenty of fodder for general election -- maria: is trump more worried about hillary or ted cruz? >> he is more concerned in the long term about hillary. u.n. republican nomination. maria: ted cruz is a factor. >> we will see what legs he has after iowa. trump has of border appeal, but go to get a better stage. the iron is no one has emerged from the establishment wing to challenge him, not chris christie, not jeb bush, not marco rubio. >> the point i want to bring up
7:05 am
is trump's relationship with the republican party, can you speak to that? will they get behind him in his number is -- will they get behind him? >> if the as the nominee they will lose the specter of hillary clinton helps enormously. the other thing that is interesting is ted cruz is no more palatable to establish republicans than trump is. it is surprising that both the leading candidates come from the tea party conservative wing of the party, not the establishment. maria: traditionally in iowa and new hampshire voters make up their mind week before but ted cruz is leading in iowa. how much longer carries trump going to allow ted cruz to be in iowa? is a huge momentum lost going into new hampshire. >> traditionally the winner of iowa is not the winner of the nomination. the winner of highways almost never the winner of new hampshire. maria: why is i went important? >> excellent question you'd have to ask the republican national committee. what is interesting is i awake is a caucus slightly different
7:06 am
from pool of voters is large enough to nominate donald trump for him to win the caucus. the question is whether his campaign can't get those people to the polls. nonvoters, many first-time voters. it is a challenge but if he can do and i think he can prevent -- maria: he will let ted cruz be in iowa. what will it take? >> 45 days away. i would not count on anything yet. at this point trump is in strong shape in either state. i would p out that caucus and primary polling is very volatile and therefore you see different polls in iowa. some of them show ted cruz further ahead than others. maria: should he be doing more on the ground in iowa? if he wants to be ted cruz? >> the guy running his eyewall operation is excellent, he met rick santorum to what we now know was a victory three years ago. i think the trump folks know what they're doing on the ground in iowa.
7:07 am
maria: and a general election if a state like iowa is important in this age of social media or can trump that i can get out to my millions of twitter followers and facebook followers so whether or not i win in iowa becomes less important as a campaign manager. would you agree? >> if you look at the historical trend in iowa is not a reliable predictor of the nominee. i don't think you can finish fifth but if trump finishes in the top two new hampshire is a more palatable state. if you aren't evangelical christian, more catholics, use a northeasterner running the northeastern state. new hampshire is a better state. maria: this is the same game plan marco rubio is playing by not investing in the infrastructure in early states. marco rubio is following the from model of social media, getting out in the debate and having them a presence that leads to a national campaign. >> but you need to win some place and marco rubio has got some promising numbers in front middle of the pack.
7:08 am
but he has to win in new hampshire, iowa, new hampshire, south carolina or he will have no momentum. maria: using trump could lose iron and is fine? >> deegan lose iowa. what about -- chris christie wins new hampshire? >> because the delegates are proportional until march 15th and because all these candidates have super pac money you could go to a convention with no one having this nomination wrapped up with trump having the largest single bloc of delegates in which case frankly i fear a brokered convention in which they try to cheat donald trump out of the nomination. maria: if donald trump gets the nomination, who are the top people to be his vice president? >> i couldn't begin to speculate. my guess would be someone outside the discipline of politics. maria: does he have an arrangement or agreement with ted cruz? talking about this earlier the
7:09 am
fact there so polite to one another? >> i know he likes ted cruz, i like ted cruz on many issues. maria: can he win the election or is he too conservative? >> they said ronald reagan was too conservative, the same people whose a trump can't wins a ted cruz can't win. given the incredible negatives of hillary clinton and exploitable problems at the state department, the fact she is responsible for this mess, she's very beatable. maria: you think they both can be islam. >> any republicans would have a shot. maria: if it comes down to donald trump vs. ted cruz do you think the establishment is going with donald trump? >> neither of them is the flavor of the party for them but might have a broader appeal. hundreds of thousands if not millions, into the process on the duopoly horse impolitic, the trump campaign is an insurgency,
7:10 am
it changes the face of the electorate. >> great to have -- you can only see the next republican debate on the fox business network, mark your calendars and join us in charleston, south carolina. we will host the next gop presidential debate. on wall street we have the gdp number out, investors watching for broad range of economic data on a holiday shortened week. we will be looking at housing, manufacturing and consumer data. we are looking at a big wednesday. >> the gdp number, it is not as important, i would look at the housing data. we are following the price of
7:11 am
oil lower. and high volatility so you get big swing this. the market could rally. with oil moving hire. maria: the markets for the christmas holiday closing at 1:00 p.m. last week before year end what do you expect for 2016? >> the u.s. economy in better position than people give it credit for. and look at positive, housing being a big part of that. the fed normalizing or getting back toward normal is a good thing getting off of zero interest rates. >> the biggest indicator, what happens with isis or terrorism or the middle east. in 2016 could be wiped out with
7:12 am
another attack. >> disney's big ban on star wars for the box office for sure. and the force has not weakened disney stock. next.
7:13 am
7:14 am
maria: new developments in the investigation into the deadly car crash in las vegas yesterday. lori rothman with that story and checking other headlines. lori: new details about the driver of the car who
7:15 am
deliberately drove into a packed sidewalks on the las vegas strip yesterday morning killing one and injuring 35. 24-year-old holloway was from oregon, she has been living in her 1996 oldsmobile with her 3-year-old toddler. holloway will be charged with murder with a deadly weapon and other charges associated with the incident little more pressure on chipotle, federal officials investigating a new eagle eye strain linked to the popular breed of mcshane. cdc saying there are five new cases and it is unclear if they are related to the outbreak that started in october. "star wars: the force awakens" breaking records at the box office but disney stock is falling. disney lost more than $10 billion in market value in the last week, shares are down 6% in the last three sessions. these declines may be in connection to concern over disney's espn losing cable subscribers as your sumpter cable connections and get shows from other sources. maria: stock had a great year. that is one thing to look at.
7:16 am
thank you very much. disney in trouble? i think not. what do you think? >> i think not also but investors out there wall street wants to hear how they are going to replace the revenue from espn. that is the biggest thing. tried to talk on wall street estimates saying we are having not hard time, seeing some chord cutting which will hit the bottom line. this is a global franchise, they have theme parks, movies, something like star wars that will -- there will be another star wars after that. this is the global franchise that this is a name you want to own because i believe disney will figure out how to replace that espn revenue. i don't know how. maria: stock is too low on the year so there could be some of this all on the news because we have these great expectations,
7:17 am
$250 million over the weekend domestic, $550 million, not made but revenue ticket sales, globally, big numbers. >> everyone is focused on star wars over the course of the last few months, now that star wars is out people are focusing, the same story, just what analysts are choosing to look at. that is leading to the negative from disney, great company at the right price. maria: they lost 7 million subscribers in the last two years which was $650 million of revenue. that is clearly a concern as younger people are not going to cable news, not going to espn. what is the plan? how do you make up for that? maria: companies like netflix wanting in on the sports franchise because sports has been the most profitable. >> that is one thing that isn't going to change. people are going to look at the nfl, the power of the nfl, that
7:18 am
is a cute revenue driver. how will that help disney g q how will disney figured that out? they will figure it out but the momentum on stock looks as if it has peaked and the momentum is to the downside. maria: micron technology, after the close, thoughts on either of those? >> micron went from being one of the biggest winners, cit manufacturer to be one of the biggest losers and it got killed and it all comes from the, quote, death of the pc. this is accompanied the argument in a prettys was it was cheap, same argument in a 20s, now is down at 5 times earnings the stock is at $14 a share. with micron there was a lot of talk of consolidation in the cit sector. i want to hear from management what they're doing with cash and if that was an offer for the company allege with thes see if they speak to that in the conference call but nike is 90. all vote adidas is getting a lot of traction i think 90 is still
7:19 am
the name in athletic footwear, making a fortune and people talk about lebron james deal, possibly $1 billion a deal but last year the air jordan brand generated $2.6 billion in revenue for 90. 90 is a company you want to stick with. maria: 90% market share in shine or something crazy like that. the nfl playoff picture, outrage over odell beckham and his antics during the loss to the panthers. his suspension, what it means for the league. we are back in a minute. the only way to get better is to challenge yourself,

7:22 am
maria: it is the nfl delivering note the spending giants are wide receiver odell beckham. good morning. >> weiner is this was coming. and statistics was suspended one game without play. beckham committed a tree of personal fouls that penalties,
7:23 am
the worst defense after one playmate running charge that his day long target, joshed norman, beckham spearheaded his helmet into norman's yesterday. the nfl punish the wide receiver for one game without pay. and numerous times against the carolina panthers your actions placed a fellow player at the necessary research and clearly did not represent the high standards of sportsmanship expected. the cost to beckham, 117 of his annual salary, beckham has appealed but suspension, the appeal is likely to be heard tomorrow. odell beckham jr. gets one game from the nfl. and matter of hours, he saw his public image change from darling to demon. would it serve himself better tune not appeal? everybody appeals, even mass
7:24 am
murderers are like not guilty. maybe it would have done him better to say i did it. maria: i was wrong. >> here is a young player that shows a lot of fire, a great player, still a young guy, let his emotions get the best of him, the penalty hit, the means of suspension, he led with his head, that leads to a suspension but everyone is piling on this guy and everybody knocking him. i am a jets fan, not a giants fan, i like a fire that he should, he put his team in a bad position but if every guy was as fired up they would have won a game and beat the panthers. >> that doesn't excuse his actions. he might be the bes wide receiver in the nfl, nobody makes catches but it doesn't excuse his actions. this is the fourth time over two seasons he has gotten in trouble for acting childish essentially. he threw some punches. what set him off?
7:25 am
i don't know. the 2006 world cup, the player who went and head buted another player and it was all about a comment made about his sister. if you ever want to kick somebody off on this 40 killed make a emasculating comments and i have been reading some sources that espn saying there were some anti-gay slurs made toward odell beckham before the game. forget where that goes certainly would get used on a field some time, may be it got under his skin. you have to act like you have been there. maria: if the nfl does not suspend him they would have gotten a huge backlash. >> they should have thrown him out of the game. maria: maybe it wasn't enough. >> how about referees during the game? >> that is their job. time and again the nfl says we are in front of this, roger goodell pounds his chest, this is down, they still seem reactive and not proactive at least from my money because the
7:26 am
officials should have kicked him out of the game. the people whose job is to spot for head injuries fail. maria: never went to see something like that. that is the latest copies in the paid at the pump, how low can prices go? how quickly can they get there? we are checking oil and gas ahead of the holiday this week, back in a minute.

8:21 am
the eastern u.s., bringing in rain as far north as part of northeast, stretching all the way down to parts of the florida panhandle some areas, could be looking at thunderstorms later today so we are going to be seeing delays, very likely across the eastern u.s., but now out west we have a much larger storm system, this storm system packing a punch from washington cascades down to ka sierra even across the rockies, we are looking at as much as two feet and even greater amounts out here has been very active across the western u.s. that pattern continues, you are also going to be dealing with strong winds, the winter-storm warnings in effect from about washington state to western parts of colorado. and as all of that wasn't enough looking at a risk for severe storms, some could produce isolated tornados he northeastern texas oklahoma we were arkansas take a look what happens tomorrow a much more widespread risk, force of storms it does ponl greatest

8:30 am
>> good news for drivers, prices at the gas pump hovering just above $2 a gallon this morning. phil flynn is at the cme in chicago. phil, what are you seeing in oil? >> what we're seeing is a little bit of a rebound, not in gasoline prices, they're still going down according to the api report. it will be interesting to see the gdp report that came out just a little higher at 2.0%. and gdp 2.7 in line with expectations. the expectation, core deflator in line with that. so it's probably not going to be a big mover for the oil prices. when you look at oil prices, everybody is looking to what's going to happen next year. are we going to get through the glut of supply and demand impro improve. what's the big question for the market.
8:31 am
in the short-term, it's concerns about warm weather and lack of demand weighing on the prices now, bah being -- back to you. maria: the next guest says that as the prices old at this level, struggling producers will largely go under, and the book, "the frackers", and thank you for i think jo us. quickly before we get to the frackers, an important part. any thoughts on the gdp. >> we're seeing weakness in kind of areas that we had seen growth, such as the energy business, which has been responsible for a third of growth and people are enjoying lower prices at the pump and there's a flip side, and there's had a little bit of a pain there, too. maria: when you see oil prices down 35, 40% from the highs, you have to believe that some of those fracking companies will not be able to produce and
8:32 am
make money at these levels, they'll go bankrupt. >> and i call them zombies they should be dead and they're not. wall street is giving them a long leash, banks are extending credit. and long lines that want to invest in energy. you go long only when you start to see the bankruptcies. and that's the only time to me when you start getting more optimistic about buying energy. >> is this the saudi opec strategy to crowd out the market? >> it is, but it's not quite working because u.s. production continues apace. we're 9.3 million barrels a down, down from 9.6. so we're not seeing them crushed like the saudies expected. so, the saudies are fighting the u.s. frackers, iranians, russians, a lot of people they want to keep prices down to kill off. >> i'm sorry, mike, the oil
8:33 am
gluts and these low prices, prices are particularly devastating for the russian economy, right? >> very much so. if you think about what happens with reagan, you know, reagan did a great job of killing off the-- a lot with the awedies and lowering oil prices and i think that's part of the reason, they're fighting off again. the saudies have all kinds of enemies and trying to hurt them all. >> when you look now, the new law that was passed for the first time now we can export oil from the u.s. i think that's a bigger story than really was played out in the media, do you agree? >> near-term it doesn't mean that much, but i completely agree medium and long-term it changes the dynamics, people in north dakota and texas are saying, yeah, prices are low now, longer term we can export. marginally will help those guys. maria: when we peel back the gdp number. corporate profits down 3.3%. so, when you factor in oil down as much as it is, how do you
8:34 am
assess the economy right now going into 2016? >> profit margins have been so high for so long, we expected them to come down. and we get nervousness, they can't stay up that high. and when we talk a to hedge fund managers for 2016, earnings are a concern. maria: earnings are a concern going into 2016. >> multiples aren't cheap either. >> and we touched on this earlier, greg, though mull multiples are highway, i'm in the camp you don't need to see massive expansion in growth or even in p.e. multiples for 2016 to support a higher s&p valuation. i think if we can get there if we continue to see the type of stock repurchases we've been seeing? >> yeah, although for the economy overall, stock repurchases residential nearly as good as reinvesting in your business and sort of says something about the economy that people are buying back shares.
8:35 am
maria: instead of reinvesting. let me ask you about the economy because we've got an economy that is sort of two steps forward, one step back and we see that from the gdp and then markets and impact on markets. what is your take what happened on third avenue where they shut the gates and you couldn't get any money out, no liquidity, the ceo was pushed out and everybody is worried about other credit funds? >> it's fascinating to me. it's two-fold. we've had interest rates so low, exceedingly low for so long, and when you look at the fund, they're buying nonrated debt and other funds are like that and it's worrisome and about energy and how it's leaking in as the ripple effect. the other market, like the junk bond market, because 50% are energy related and makes you concerned long-term there because i think that energy prices are going to say low for the next couple of years at least. >> the concern is that it stays in fenced into a place like third avenue. if this can leak out to the broader markets or larger etf

that's where you could talk about systemic risk, i don't think it's there, but that's the potential. >> i agree. the leveraged buyers you have of 2008, it's less of a concern to me, anyway. maria: when you see the fracking situation, you know where oil is, are you concerned we'll see job losses in that segment of the economy, energy, sort of bleed out to the rest of the economy? >> i don't know bleed out, but large parts of this economy or this nation that rely on energy business. you forget about that. i've traveled the country and north dakota and texas and louisiana and pennsylvania, even. a third of growth in recent years has come from the energy business and that's going away. you're still seeing production, but it's slowing. >> what about the fact that with oil where it is, it's a positive for things like airlines, car makers? the companies that use oil as an input? >> that's the offset and you look at airlines for sure. they're enjoying this situation, and consumers, you're not seeing the spending like you would have expected, but sure, at the pump when you
8:37 am
see prices below $2, that's got to look at the holiday season as well. maria: greg, good to have you on the show. >> thank you. maria: don't forget "mornings with maria" starts every day at 6:00 on the fox business network. before we go we'll take a look at moments you may have missed from earlier in the program. >> talk about being embarrassed by donald trump, i think that's part of his plan. i think he's out there. he doesn't mind embarrassing people. he wants to shock people. that's his plan, but i would wonder, how many people of those people embarrassed by trump, how many are also embarrassed by our current an, you know? i remember yoda personally. [laughter] >> this is going to be the first earn ever to jump on the stock exchange floor. >> i know it's early, but the moose is going to get loose. maria: here we go, let's see if i can do it. with a little help from my friends.

>> welcome back. we're 45 minutes away from the opening bell. let's go to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. it's got the gdp and nicole, your reaction? >> take a look at futures. the initial reaction was we haw
8:41 am
the s&p up three and the up arrows hold here and dow futures up 28. s&p up nearly three points here for futures. gdp coming in better than expected. and quarter over quarter, a little less than the prior quarter of 2.1%. let's look at disney and chipotle. two that are kicking it off here. at chipotle, basically a new e. coli strain, this is a stock that touched a 19 month low yesterday as it continued a knew strain of e. coli on top of what they've already been doing, investigations. they've not yet found out what the problem is, it is related to the produce is what they say. disney, and that stock is 19 month slow. disney rallied about 30% since august now, "the force awakens", "star wars" hype telling on the news, and the fact there's concern over disney's espn losing those subscribers. so, disney is one to watch as well. maria: all right, thank you so much.
8:42 am
mike, you're watching after the close tonight. >> two main ones being micron, a chip maker and micron is at the forefront of this whole death of the pc movement. maria: they make the chips that go into pc's? >> into pc's, but among other things, the stock gets hit anytime you hear about people moving away from the pc or smartphone or tablet. maria: everybody is doing. >> they make chips that go into phones. i think that stock has been, it had a huge run last year from 14 to the mid 30's, give it back this year from mid 30's to where it is now, 14. and trades at a low multiple. i think there's more upside at the stock and nike is going that you want to watch. you want to take on the consumer, the consumer who is dead and not spending money. let's look at nike sales and i think you'll see not only china sales which we know will be strong, but north american sales i think are going to be very, very good for nike. maria: you own these stocks, you said?
8:43 am
>> i do know the, but i'd love to get an opportunity to own nike. >> it's interesting because nike is the move of technology into athletic clothing, i think that there was talk about, you know, apple and nike partnership and that empowered under amour to put sensors in its clothes. >> and under amour, if nike has a competitor, it's under amour. they're a lot smaller and they're in-- a reporter asked lebron james what do you think about under amour and his response was, who? that tells me, they are taking notice of them. but nike's a company that has huge margins on their products and they have a stable of guys like lebron james that are going to continue, and michael jordan for that matter that are going to continue for years to come. so it's a great name to own. it seems kind of fully priced at these levels to me. maria: morgan, i think the most important data point, we've seen a breakdown in the economy
8:44 am
and we'll see the durable goods orders. . >> it's interesting, what you spoke to earlier. the savings that the consumers are seeing at the pump, why aren't we seeing that spent in the economy. whether it's the manufacturing sector or consumer sector, there's a hesitance to the economy. how does the average consumer feel about the economy? right now they're not spending to a degree that makes me think that companies or individuals have confidence in the economic leadership of the company. >> we've had eight years of uncertainty since the great recession kicked in and i think there's a political factor here, too. people are saying, let's see how the election turns out. you know, before we really start investing again or start to spend our money again. maria: business is certainly waiting for that. coming up, why go to the gym when you can bring the gym home. how one company plans to bring the fitness class to you. we are going to show you next. ♪

riding in the peloton as it were. it's because the options at home to get a 45 minutes dripping workout when you want one. if you go to the boutique studios you can get the workout with high energy coach and great movie -- music and other riders. but not at home. when you can get the 45 minute workout that hasn't been an option before peloton. maria: i'm a biker, love riding outside. there are options if you ride inside. >> i'm a cyclist four hours going up the gw bridge, going 50 miles, my dream. maria: same, i love it. >> with two young kids, my wife works, i work, but taking that is indulgent in the 20's. maria: i'll say. >> less and less you have to

8:52 am
we are not a stationary bike company, that's not our product. but we're leveraging in doing things broadly across fitness. peloton, we're innovating the nexis of fitness and me yeah and there are instructor-like classes whether it's yoga or i'm a fan of a barry's boot camp. >> i almost died in a barry's boot camp. >> i tend to buy some of these and hanging clothes on them. how do you get people to use the bike and what's your target customer? >> sure, that's been the flaw of the model, going back to nordic track, it was a piece of hardware that sat in your basement. it's not about the hardware, it's about the content, the motivation and instructor, the energy of the people and music. we're more of a technology company with software and veeming content, versus the traditional hardware player and it's beautiful, on fox business, it's also a beautiful

police model it's not about hardware margins, it's a subscription business contents model. what works for the consumer, also in our case works for the business as well. >> that is what stands you apart right there. >> what's unique about peloton, you can get the live and also classes sort of on tape, right? if you don't make a live class necessarily you could pull up a class. >> that's right. we think we are an apple meets-- we run a store so we're like apple, but like netflix, rides on demand. i like this particular instructor, 80's hip-hop, and i select my filters and here is the subset of classes. >> that described me perfectly, 80's hip-hop, 30 minutes. maria: great, congratulations. >> it's a company that we're trying to have a hive style

welcome back, final thoughts from our guest s, mike murphy. >> as we get into a slow holiday week, the year hasn't gone as kind of we expected in
8:58 am
the markets, but i want to look forward to 2016. i think there's a lot of opportunity in the market. i think we get a new political regime in place, i think the economy has more strength beneath it than people are giving it credit for. i think lower oil prices are going to be helpful and i think the fed getting off zero interest rates and away from the great recession of 2008. i think that all that puts together 2016 that's going to surprise people to the upside. maria: maybe the consumer comes out from under a rock. >> look at nike's earnings, they'll be spending on nike shoes. >> lindsey graham getting out of the race, it's interesting, he was not high in the polls. everybody thinks he's going to rubio or cruz or bush. if i was trump, the only on foreign policy is to get somebody like lindsey graham on your side. maria: he's so smart on foreign policy. >> he's smart, but the base doesn't like it which is why he
8:59 am
did poorly. if he endorses one of these guys, that's not a good thing. maria: go ahead. >> i think that early on ted cruz did a master struck in creating something of an alliance in donald trump and now you're seeing they're essentially the final two. that doesn't mean that marco rubio or chris christie can come down. i think they're pretty much locking down the vote and believe me when hillary clinton doesn't want to run against either one because they're not bound by the rule. maria: and donald trump came up during the debate. and hillary clinton was in the ladies room, what happened there? they were waiting for her. >> pure speculation, she was waiting to get in the bathroom and someone was in there. a martin o'malley staffer to which i say martin o'malley has
9:00 am
a staffer? but my speculation, she was on the phone to bill clinton, they have a co-dependent relationship and they check in 12 times a day. maria: that will do it for us, "varney & company" starts now. over to you. stuart: we'll take it. now, this is christmas week, yes, it is, but there's no peace and love between donald and hillary, anything but. good morning, trump repeats his claim that hillary is a liar and continues to demand she apologize that he's a recruitment tool. apologize, me, hillary says, hell no. quinnipiac voter, would you be embarrassed if he were president? hajavhalf say yes. and a german police chief makes headlines saying the men don't
