[laughter] >> snitch. [laughter]
6:02 am
>> dagen: we have more highlights of ricky gervais, plus golden globes winners and losers. we saw lady gaga, she won. shanghai composite falling overnight. futures point to go modest gains this morning, but investors continue to worry about the global market picture and slow growth out of china, our next guest say it's not just china but central banks to blame for the recent markets. adam johnson, welcome. adam, what are industrial banks going to do about it? >> if they have been true of what they've done in the past, one and done as far as fed is concern. they raised rates once. seven central banks in 2013 up rates and lowered rates because we have a global problem. >> let's talk about that.
6:03 am
the globe problem is deflation and slow growth. if you're janet yellen you're looking at the job numbers. one and done for all of '16? >> the world bank just slower it had global growth rate 2.9%. we are drawing slower than that in the country. you can argue that it was low rates for too long, which exactly what we heard from the dallas fed president last week, that's what inflated markets like china as investors had to go in to try to find returns, the problem is they overstayed their welcome and that's a concern. >> anthony: an economy like ours need 300 basis points of stimulus to keep it on a rough growth trajectory. the federal reserve has no bullets in the chamber, possibly quantitative. exactly. those are the only bullets.
6:04 am
>> if they had done this a year and a half ago, they had up rates. they waited too long. >> dagen: what is the central banks going to do about this? what if, kevin, they are now powerless and have nothing left and this is just a payback and you can't stop it, is anybody talking about that because maybe it's a downturn in assets across the board? why can't that happen? >> kevin: that's getting back to the deflationary market because one of the reasons is they pumped all of the money into the system. look where we are. imf is predicting 2%. >> anthony: why are we in slow
6:05 am
growth? >> mike: one of the reasons is because we have had unproductive assets and we've actually seen what easy money has done. it's thrown it into risky assets specially in china because we are talking about that right now. look at the unproductive factories. it made companies go out and build the other factories to feed the china beast. >> dagen: i want to bring in morgan, though. the come down with assets like oil, for example, you have a much riskier world in terms of action that is you're saying, vladimir putin, that actually causes rising tensions around the world in oil-producing countries. >> morgan: absolutely, dagen. you are all the experts on china, one of the things that i really thought over the weekend was the lack of the
6:06 am
communication and sort of lack of pr strategy, so to speak, on behalf of the government to make people understand exactly what's going on with the currency and what they're going to do from a policy perspective. in my mind -- >> dagen: because they don't know. >> morgan: pr strategy as much as anything. >> they're trying to orchestrate major in the economy. that's hard to do. they're trying to go from rule of law, that's hard to do. and they're also trying to do a central economy to free economy. in china they're trying to do all three. >> morgan: while dramatically growing military spending at the same time. >> correct. still way below what ours is. they are trying to make incredible transitions and, kevin, you talk about the ghost cities, they are roughly 20 of them.
6:07 am
i have to tell you guys, the trippiest thing you have ever seen, five lanes go this way, there are 20 lanes coming together and one blinking light and you're the only person there. buildings that are empty. they built up buildings because they thought they were going to bring all the manufacturers to china. that's the problem. >> anthony: i think there's a global macro force that we have to address. you have two and a half billion, possibly 3 billion people wanting a western-consumption base cap capitalist experience. he predicted the outcome. global deflation will slow down growth. the only way that this is going to get disrupted is that major governments and -- that's the
6:08 am
only way. >> dagen: that's really what i'm talking about. do you believe for a second that any of the central banks will do that because certainly we're in a situation where in the united states where at least they are tied a little bit. >> anthony: dr. bernanke in the green book says it's time to do that. you have to let the markets. one and a half to 2%. >> by the way, with earnings shrinking 4% means we are going lower. >> mike: we have to get off the central banks and monetary policies. we have to look at what's actually happening and hampering the growth. we have too much government and corruption and too much debt going through the system. the government needs to address
6:09 am
that, that's from brazil and china and anywhere else. >> dagen: the next president, they're going to be pressure on that individual to do something about janet yellen and do something, more control over the central bank, don't you think? that's dangerous. >> anthony: supergood leadership. two weeks before reagan was inaugurated where he met and said to the guy, okay, keep the rates where we are, we need the break the back of inflation. it's probably going to cost you the mid-term elections next year. he said i'm good. he took a nap, and he struggled for the first two years of presidency but got the economy going back in the right direction. >> morning in america. >> anthony: require tremendous amount of leadership. somebody is going to have to sit there, let it trade to fair market value, there's enough
6:10 am
jobs to sustain that. >> if we give a holiday of corporations to bring that back and two jobs, that could spur -- >> anthony: i'm glad dagen has tissues. governor romney had the plan in place. he would have equalized those taxes. brought the real unemployment rate, not the one that we are talking about but the real unemployment rate into the mid-7's and gotten the economy growing already. your earnings nurse that you're talking about, they would be on the rise right now. >> start today alcoa after the close. tough to buy the market. >> dagen: i'm going to leave it at that. i would say as ronald reagan say, markets go up and markets go down. that's what he was really to commit to. adamonson. coming up republican front

6:15 am
the arrest coming one day before the release of rolling stone exclusive interview between actor sean penn and el chapo. penn secret meeting helped lead them to the drug lord. singer-song writer has died at the age of 69. >> who is going to call this sucker? if nobody has any objections, i believe i might be of service. >> cheryl: all right. he was so talented. according to spokesman the singer died peacefully after an 18-month battle with cancer. disappointed that you didn't win the power ball the weekend, don't be, starting november 4th, we are now looking at an estimated $1.3 billion by wednesday which is basically one day of salary for anthony scaramucci.

[laughter] >> mike: a lot of inflation. >> dagen: who is not playing? come on. turning back to the markets, worst ever start for the dow and s&p investors bracing for the coming weeks. you talk about going to selling to downturn? >> mike: that sounds about right. nobody is forcing anybody to be in this market. if you're nervous and don't have a grip on portfolio or view on where you want to be, whether it's, you know, oil, you're
6:17 am
having problems with, if you're a millennial like me and sit on mothering -- merging market for 20 years -- >> dagen: stop bragging. >> mike: the markets may be down 2%. you can wait till there's an up tick and get more conviction. we have to see what's going to happen when earnings start coming up. >> anthony: when you're with nonmillennials you shouldn't mention that. >> morgan: wait a minute. speak for yourself. >> dagen: my mom is a baby boomer. i want to point that pensions and mutual funds have pulled $200 million over the last year. pensions are running the highest in about 12 years.
6:18 am
>> mike: they can't lose that cash. they have liabilities. >> dagen: speaking of baby boomers. >> mike: you're only 75% funded, what are you going to do? they're so scare offed principal risk. >> dagen: you say cash but you say what? >> anthony: i like the fact that there's a lot of cash. assuming that the market will break down and trade into the multiple, dagen, that cash is going to get back into the market. so for me i'm cautiously optimistic that will end the year okay, we may go down another 5-8% from here from now and the end of 2016, just because you are going to get a meaner version that the feds are going to raise rates. >> dagen: the fed doesn't move at the earliest in april. >> anthony: market trades off

6:21 am
6:22 am
>> maria: s&p 500 decline last week of 6%. what do you think is behind the meltdown? >> well, if you look at the rest of the country it's not doing well. jobs are few and far between, you know, you have the phoney
6:23 am
statistics where they show 5%, 5.2%. the real number is well into the 20's people give up looking for jobs. >> dagen: that was presidential front runner donald trump speaking with maria. trump still leading cofortfully in a brand new fox news national poll. you can see the margin with donald trump and the closest comer senator cruz. trump appears to have competition in iowa. you can take a look at the iowa poll numbers. cruz is leading trump by 27 to 23% there. if you look at new hampshire trump has a solid lead in new hampshire, morgan, what do you make of as of this? >> morgan: cruz was 20%. highest he has ever been in national poll that fox has done. what that says that trump's
6:24 am
attacks if he's legally run to run for president of the united states since he was born in canada, i'm not sure it's affecting polls. if you look at the poll over the weekend and you look at state by state in iowa and new hampshire, cruz is still leading among caucus voters, he's leading trump by 4%. you look at new hampshire, trump is sugaring in new hampshire. he's at 30%. you have the quote, unquote establishment candidates that have 44%. everyone says on the show every day that right before iowa and new hampshire, a few days before that's how the voters break. >> dagen: who benefits, anthony, from the market downturn or who has a message that's resinating? >> anthony: i actually think trump, i think hillary clinton does get damaged by a big market downturn.
6:25 am
the republicans would say, jeez, democratic policy have failed, you're not going to see any sustainable growth. >> dagen: running on the obama -- >> morgan: bernie sanders are running neck and neck. this mainstream media narrative that race is locked up is reported. >> anthony: bernie sanders is ahead of her. he is doing better than barack obama when secretary clinton last ran for presidency. donald trump has got all of the establishment people, myself included staggered by the performance. there's something happening in the tails of american politics right now in terms of the more extreme levels of both parties for creating this environment. >> mike: it's yet to be seen what his popularity will turn into votes. we don't know -- we are seeing
6:26 am
all these polls. it's easy to answer a phone or answer someone in person, what do you think, but it's harder for them to leave their job or make time to go to the booth. we don't know how that's going to -- >> anthony: they are showing up at the rallies. >> dagen: you are to have a voter registration campaign which barack obama had one that no one had ever seen before and according to my report trump has not been able to convert support and fever to registrations at least in iowa. we can talk about this all morning long. tune in to lou dobbs tonight. he will announce lineups for the next presidential debates which will be held right here at the fox business network, earlier debate moderated by trish regan and later debate by maria

6:31 am
doing the trick u nowadays. moving between gains and losses, you have a decent one-third of a percent gain on the dax in germany at the moment. a little bit of buying at the start of trading today. dow jones industrial future u up 46 points u right now after that average and s&p 500 worst start of the year ever last week, and breaking news overnight, the world has a reacted far and wide to the news that music legend david bowie has died. a statement posted says that bowie do id after 18 month battle with cancer and turned 69 on friday when he released his latest album. bowie made it okay to just be weird and different. right, everybody can tbrea with that. mean meantime elle chopo, interviewed for a story pleasured in rolling stone
6:32 am
magazine and who knew that sean penn knew two syllable words that led to his capture. now mexico is starting process to extradite guzman to the u.s., and golden globes host rick can i waste nod time offering his take last night. >> into hiding. not even sean penn will find me. [laughter] snitch. >> we have more highlights of ricky coming up, plus two words, still sylvester stallone. winners and losers. oil prices kicking off week right here, oned downside at the cme group. oil down now six days this a row lost half of the value from the 52-week high. what shall we be watching this week in terms of what will move
6:33 am
the cost of crude? >> any stability in the global stock market. the reason why oil is down, we can talk about an oil glut but it is concern about the global economy. you know, you can talk about you know, a dplut going away if you have demand expectations but turmoil and markets those prices are down. we also saw another drop in gasoline prices that shifts or for some more demand as we come into this month. but it's beginning to be very difficult for oil to find stability unless we get stability in the global markets 36 the big support back to you. >> stay right there i want to bring in anthony in terms of the selloff. but the bigger picture for our country is how bad does the energy business continue to get hit? you know, the industrial economy is as maria talked about for months now essentially in recession. what impact does that have with the highly levered shale plays
6:34 am
in smaller produce centers >> there's a lot there so i'll break it down three points. >> i pulled a presidential press conference i asked eight questions in a row. >> one, the lower price is leading to a recession in north dakota, south dakota and texas nine percent is affected by this lower price. number two, there's going to be a huge opportunity here in the distress credit side for these emt producers now that have to restructure themselves because they were operating dagen off a priced 60, 70 per barrel and now in the 30s so that's a major opportunity for the hedge fund community to step in there at some point. last point that i'll make fed got this wrong. they said lower prices would be a boom to the economy and, in fact, has not been and just shows you how energy dependent now we are as a global potential
6:35 am
exporter of energy going forward. >> so ting i think another thing to take away from this is, you know, china in cheap debt has had chained the equation when it comes to commodities especially oil and going back to what you just said anthony we look at last quarter earnings with the e and p publicly traded companies therefore they were forecasting $50 a barrel of oil for this year. earning season is beginning to start this week we're going to get a major bolt next woke and what we need to see is what managements say. how are they going to navigate this oil market given that we have excess capacity. think about this china matters because they're woferld large test consumer of oil. right, and capacity it was built out for them. where's that excess capacity going to go? we need to hear emp producers give guidance on what they think >> how are these companies going out of business in the next six
6:36 am
to 12 months. they're bound to have estimates. >> i'm hearing 10 or 15 we call companies the walking debt in the industry. you know, we're waiting for the next ones to fall and this recent drop is going to speed that process along. we're hearing a lot of concerns of banks getting ready to pull credit lines from a lot of these companies right now. because there's no hope that these prices are beginning to come back so bankers aren't really interested in extending a lot of these restructuring. >> what are reasons why they haven't gone out of business yet is because they're selling as much oil as possible that's why we're seeing price go down, right? >> morgan you want to get in here? >> say this relates to middle east, saudi arabia, where we haven't seen any big moves by opec that i think any of us want expected. all shocked by the 98 billion that saudi posted. does anybody have thoughts on what the deputy krown prince said about iran potentially going public? for me that screamed --
6:37 am
>> you answer that. >> this could be huge but a sign that saudis are are feeling the pain. just even consider an ipo at this point means they feel there are major problems that oil prices aren't going up any time soon. so to me for them to even consider this possibility, they think that global energy landscape has changed for the long-term. >> phil good to see you. we'll see you in a little while at the cma for us. fresh trouble at yahoo!. reporting that marissa myer announce massive job cuss as part of a plan to cut the fat. a stun about face for myer hire inside 2012 to jump start struggling economy. they point out that more than one-third of the company's work force has left in the last year. shares of yahoo! fallen 38% over past year and if those acquisition and if they fail to deliver a turnaround morale is so bad "times" reports staff
6:38 am
have taken to call ling myer a vita behind her back. that's a reference to ava parone reviled for thirst for power and portrayed in new york post as maria antoinette with a party last year, lavish party with circus performers seated on the white thrown that people could come -- >> that was excessive party that she threw, a company holiday party. a roar 20s party because bubble burst at yahoo! look at what's happened since she's taken help. 5 tbl in rev nude down to 4.5 billion. hottest digital properties with page views and what have you pup what's happening? executives are leaving the companies in droves. the only reason this company has done well and been propped up
6:39 am
because of alibaba got that acquisition and stake, if you it can a step back and looks at this it has to go. you have egg on the face from the spinoff from shares figuring out what had court dig l tay. you have activists trying to shake things up but you have these -- as circling right now. [inaudible] she's going, so it doesn't matter where she does or doesn't. but again not trying to defend her. but this company is really been impaired. okay, they'res worth less than they can with the spinout the alibaba asset is in a deficit. >> could be sold for a dollar and take that alibaba out of there. >> if you look at the core business somebody that y'all would have to pay somebody it take it essentially -- >> would happen with "newsweek" and tailed media company pas,
6:40 am
but the problem here is not they isly her problem that goes back to that bust aphorism if you have a terrible business with a great manager you have a terrible business still. [inaudible] but a poor manager. all a of the reports coming out of yahoo! is that company morale and people there is at an all time low. people that used to work at home and flexible working hours have been complaining for months. >> apay package and got negative share price? >> i have seen who hngt seen this before you try to boost morale and you have a big party. [laughter] people don't want to party but they want to go to work every day and then party winds up, you know -- like somebody throwing an egg on your face. >> 7 million to throw that party when the company hasn't been doing well. pour that back into talent that can actually build and drive. i saw that after the internet bubble burst and companies, it was called a new austerity 2 million for a party instead of
6:41 am
five. >> it will burst per them because executive and core leadership is leaving. >> fundamentally not a great business, though. we can peck on her if we want to. but i challenge any of the four of us to try to run that business more success -- >> at aol did with turning that around. >> lady gaga tearfully walking up to accept her golden globeward she brushed by leonardo dicaprio who immediately did this -- you have to watch leo's face. [laughter] we will have more exciting details for the golden globes after the break. i don't want to live with the uncertainties of hep c.

>> i dropped with my hands in the air like this -- exactly. >> steil stallone and then lady gaga nevertheless thank you, cheryl. turning back to markets u.s. futures pointing to a -- slightly higher open 79 points adding to gains from earlier in the morning. joining us now on the phone is president of capital management fox news contradict tore as well. u you've been barish are you barish from here where will s&p end this new year? >> it will look short a term i think we're beyond whey call oversold and probably get a 3, 400 point rile arely after this. but look transports are down 20. brussels down getting close to it about and so many areas of the markets are so much worse. i'm pretty sure when a bare market had for stocks in the 14s in the dow. if not less. excuse me, if not more. and my biggest worry again is i still think there's a ton of
6:48 am
leverage that may have to come off and maybe worse than nap time will tell. >> gary in terms -- i'll look at in terms of technical at markets just looking at the dow it's still about 4% above the lowest hit back in august. u do you need to see a reit is of that? >> but basically right there. but keep in mind small cap, mitd cap with transport and ton of other areas have already broke and i'll tell you my biggest worry. a believer in the market v. smart, and when you see transports retail, all of these economicking areas in bare markets whileest is food, drug, beverage household products in recession areas, it's telling me markets forecasting a darn good slowdown and growth if not a darned good recession going forward. >> so where do you think that fed will be if that is the scenario that unfolds? >> i don't think that -- i think janet yellen will have to wake up to not to anything else at this point and time but
6:49 am
look for me. i think that beingest problem is, that there is too much fed. there's too much central bank, and every day you wake up and hear something from another fed head or drogy or or dudes from japan. i just wish they would get out of the way and disported pricing yields for too long and i think this is come up. i think we're at the point and time where market snot listening in the last few weeks japan announced expansion of a qe so did europe and market close titsz ears to it ultimately is a good thing but get the heck out of the way. too much government intervention. they need to be themselves and you know, on i'm a being believer that interest rates is how you measure risk and when you're interfering with that, it is tough to measure rsk so i hope they get the heck out of the way. gary good to talk to you calling in this morning. we'll be right back.
6:50 am
6:51 am
6:52 am
6:53 am
>> welcome back a check on your markets this morning, the dow futures are up 70 points right now 5% selloff on shanghai in china, we have a kind of become and forth market in europe check on cost of crude as well. stocks lower about that the trend oil is actually down about half had a buck a barrel at the moment. below that 33 dollar a mark. i want anthony at the bit to wonder what garys of talking about. the fed needs to get out of the way but that to me if you want -- if you want the feds to really get out of the way, then rates need to be at as you were talking at a more normal level that doesn't mean do nothing at this point. >> listen, i think that more normal level is 1.5%. that is stan fisher what weern
6:54 am
learning from the growth in the economy right now. at the end of the day, i understand what they did in 2008 into 2009. but this looks like we're trading to 14, 15,000. which had would basically be a 15 multiple and you would be at a more normal environment. i think you set the stage for better growth at that level l. taking out the artificial stimulus dagen . >> that much of an impact, though, if you don't have central banks around the world working in concerts with the fed if they're going in a different direction? >> every man for himself when it is coming down to global growth but what ant nit is hitting nail on the head it was art usually suppressed by central bank and markets is trying to figure that out right now. fed balance sheet 4.5 a trillion dollars. we've done everything possible to stimulate growth. what do we get? we did get asset inflation but
6:55 am
now we're trying to figure out do we move from here especially when you look at the commodities and government intervention like anthony said rates at one and a half percent. and they're not. >> i want to point out that is the top story that federal reverse is actually looking at more control over the market it is that it's looking at the margin rule it is or rules that limit what portion of stocks or bonds can be purchased through brring this so the ped has greater control over markets when -- you have a lot of the presidential candidates who won't pay the fed to become off, right? >> absolutely. you think this is going to be the defining issue of 2016. if you look at the fox news poll that we talkinged about earlier people are concerned about national security, of course, that's taking a bit more precedence than economy in materials of what voters are concerned about but going into 2016 i think that anthony is clearly due for ab market correction. i think this will be a very big

7:03 am
ine vement can actua reassure global investors and seems like the answer is no and no signs of stopping any time soon. >> dagen: anthony, what do you want to know here? >> anthony: what i want to know is somebody that no one will be able to tell me, what is the level of intervention from china, everything that they try so far has failed. the real question is do they do what is an obvious things to do is let things go for some period of time. >> jo ling: it seems like they have done a little bit of both. we are going to take away the the cu -- circuit breaker.
7:04 am
>> anthony: they are growing about 1-2%. that's a recession for them given the magnitude of population growth. what steps do they need to take right now to improve that? my guess is really there's not a lot that they can do. it's something that would have to flow out of the system. >> kevin: i would like to talk about that and i think that there's something that they can do. could they devalue their yuan even further. people don't want to see that. that's really, really bad over there that they have to take that, step a little bit further. getting back to what we talked about, i mean, what they're doing is lead to go more volatility with the circuit breakers. it was meant to stop decline, all it did is enact it even further. now i need cash. i need to get out because i don't know if the government is not going to let me sell or not. >> morgan: that's sort of the
7:05 am
principle behind all of this. there's no clear communication from the chinese government of what they're going to do or how long they are going to let all of this fester. >> anthony: the fact that we are talking about this level of intervention, a sign that there's something seriously wrong. last years since the crisis, global macro interventions of governments. there's only so much they can do and it's not working. okay, so you have to pull back now. the fed has to get into a normal interest rate zone and the chinese are going to have to let the markets settle. >> morgan: pull back now? >> anthony: they have no choice not to. >> morgan: i don't think anybody here in this room has any confidence that the chinese officials running stock market or running the economy really know what they've doing. [laughter]
7:06 am
>> dagen: what they were doing with the yuan it smelled like a bar at 4:00 o'clock in the morning. it freaked people out. the economy is a lot worse than what we thought. [laughter] >> morgan: definitely a hole in the wall bar. >> dagen: doing and saying things. >> jo ling: if you had remember it had just opened up. you have entirely set of challenges that they were facing and if you look at the strategy, they claim they want to move in a free more market direction but they can't do that because the volatility and the growth and the numbers aren't there. but to cover that up and maintain stability for the growing middle class, they're just doing all the stop-gap measures and it doesn't look like according to analysts that it's going to stop. >> dagen: you also get the
7:07 am
reaction from presidential candidates from donald trump who threw out the idea of 45% tariff on imported chinese goods and he seem today backtrack on it on his interview with maria on sunday morning futures yesterday. let's put a 45% tax on every good made in china for the american people. that's really going to help our economy. >> kevin: listen, i need to control china and how am i going to do it is through tariffs. i need them to dictate to north korea that china is going to come in -- >> dagen: that's more government intervention, right, anthony? >> morgan: they don't know anything other than government intervention. >> kevin: casino community iesm. it's not going to work. >> jo ling: stock market is not that large. the only reason it's a jetering
7:08 am
market is and indicater of a stronger point. you don't need to be that worried. >> anthony: we've had a free market basis to what we are doing. chinese are going to struggle until they get to that point. as it relates to donald trump, he can't honestly believe that or if he does honestly believe that and and becomes president we should be worried. historically tariffs like that have caused deflationary global slowdown and lead to global wars. >> dagen: i will leave it at that. oil prices down for six days straight. phil flin at the cme group. phil, what are driving prices down today? >> phil: it's china, china and it could be china. that's really the force today. the dollar is fairly steady today. you would look to the stock
7:09 am
markets. it's obviously concerns about china. it does seem like the market is trying to dig itself out of the hole today. maybe if we can see some optimism on the u.s. stock market continue and oil has a chance to rally. let's face it. there's a lot of stuff going across oil right now and concerns about the glut and doesn't look like any smaller. >> dagen: anthony, we talked last week if you have risk and wanting buy oil companies and keeping your money in it, do you think it's a bad idea? >> anthony: we have a fun, basically the dogs of the dow approach, which is the ten least performing dow stocks typically have a outperformance. those dow stocks typically come with high dividends. if you're in allow-growth environment where the gdp is sort of 2% and the ten-year
7:10 am
treasury at two and a half percent, do i like the strategy. >> kevin: one of the reasons that you can get in the strategy is they have balance sheets and balance sheets, i mean, one of the great things that came out of the talk shows yesterday was barbara was on wall street, she said the most important thing to her was an exit strategic. what's your exit strategy? can you weather the storm? if you have 18-24 months and you don't need to worry about it and you can cover your ewes, that would -- eyes that would be a great opportunity. >> anthony: she has a home in canada and is packed to go. >> kevin: it's not specifically donald trump. >> morgan: if you don't like who
7:11 am
the president is i will pay for your ticket. get over it. >> anthony: she was making a comment about her business interactions with him over a course of 35-year period. >> morgan: that's interesting. >> kevin: he did get a lot of kudos in manhattan real estate. >> dagen: get out of here if you can't deal with a bad administration. hey, phil, thank you, we will see you shortly. >> jo ling: good to see you too. >> dagen: we want to know his future. jail. the only question is where. the latest on the arrest of el chapo, drug kingpin, what happens to sean penn, a prosecutorror that's sniffing around and not happy with what went down south of the border and the next presidential debate will take place right here on

7:34 am
extending it there to 18. the billionaire businessman raised some eyebrows last week when the "new york times" editorial board says trump favor as 45% tariff on imported chinese goods. yesterday on "sunday morning futures" maria pressed trump about that figure. >> you did say you want to have a 45% tariff on exports coming into this country, correct? >> no, no. i said if they don't behave that will be the number commensurate. >> yeah. >> i said if they don't behave, if they don't stop doing what they're doing with the devaluations in particular. >> reporter: dagen on democratic side "fox news poll" shows hillary clinton continues to hold a strong lead nationally over bernie sanders but clinton is not completely cruising. sanders leads by 13 in new hampshire. questions extend into potential general election run against clinton. when matched up against the top
7:35 am
tier candidates, clinton loses to both trump by three and cruz by seven. marco rubio has a nine point edge. that is the point that bernie sanders has been pounding. dagen. dagen: blake, thank you so much for that. blake burman in washington for us. let's bring in former club for growth president and marco rubio supporter chris coachella. good to see you i hope i pronounced your name right. >> close enough. dagen: chris, you recently endorsed the senator's run for president. you will join him in an economic forum later today. please tell us why. >> i met marco rubio in 2009 when he was starting his senate bid in florida and you know, my job used to be interview candidates all day running for the house and senate and try to understand what they believed in economic policy, whether they understood what leads to economic growth. you can imagine how exciting that is. but unwith most exciting days i
7:36 am
had when i met marco rubio because he understands what he believes. he understands why he believes it. he can articulate those beliefs in a clear, convincing persuasive way and he also can talk about the fact that free market principles are so important to raising people out of the poverty, increasing the standard of living better than any other candidate. there is hopefulness to his candidacy much like reagan's shining city on the hill that will serve him well in this race. dagen: chris, seems like latest polling iowa is a trump versus cruz competition at the moment. does rubio really need to come in a very strong second at least in new hampshire? you can take a look at the new hampshire polls there or there is the iowa poll. if we can pull up the new hampshire poll. does he need to come in very strong second in that state to
7:37 am
have momentum going into the south? >> well, i don't know that he has to come in as a strong second. i think that he will gain momentum over time. when the club for growth first endorsed marco rubio in 2009 he was at 3% in the polls against charlie crist here in florida. when people meet marco rubio, when they hear his message, see his optimism they like marco rubio and they will support him. the people of florida did that as they got to know him. i'm convinced people of america will do that as they get to know him over these next couple months. >> chris, how do you feel about 45% tariffs on china? what is your reaction to that? >> it is all of full. it is not pro-growth policy. it's one of the worst things we could do to our economy right now. and that's why marco rubio understands the principles that really lead to creation of jobs, wealth and economic growth. donald trump says he is the jobs president but that would be about the worst thing you could do to jobs in america is to put
7:38 am
a tariff like that into imported goods. so i think that people can see the difference. i think these things come out. when people go into the voting booth they will recognize that there are candidates that understand how to create jobs and those that talk about it. >> chris, this is morgan. how does rubio break out of the pack? we're seeing in new hampshire donald trump is leading a huge margin, by 30% and about 45% of the republican electorate tied between rubio, kasich, bush and christie. how does he break out of the establishment pack because i'm not see an early state he is going to win yet? >> people underestimated marco rubio as a candidate really throughout his career. talk to people who spent time with him or been to one of his town halls or events they can come away as supporters of marco rubio. rubio campaign has been smart. they have approached this in methodical way. they have confidence in the candidate's ability to connect with voters.
7:39 am
i think they're on track to do that. i think media makes a big deal out of polls in the early states. this is long effort and there are a lot elections to be had and i think he will be just fine. dagen: chris, good to see you. thanks so much for being here. be well. >> thank you. dagen: tune into "lou dobbs tonight" at seven p.m. eastern time. lou will announce the lineups for the next republican presidential debates. you doesn't want to miss that, 7:00 p.m. the debate is thursday right here on the fox business network. the earlier debate moderated by fbn anchors trish regan and sandra smith. the later one moderated by maria bartiromo and neil cavuto. catch every minute of it thursday night, 6:00 p.m., 9:00 p.m. from charleston. this, anthony scaramucci was all over it. he put his phone under my nose to make sure we saw this shire, major deal in the biotechnology industry. buying bixalta $32 billion in

dagen: back to some market moving news that broke just a short while ago. the biotech company shire making it official buying baxalta for $32 billion.
7:54 am
there is a little bit of cash in there, cash and stock. it is an ireland-based company, buying a u.s. company. kevin your thoughts on this deal? >> my thoughts is getting back to the space, look at the health care space. this further credence to the market that the health care sector is further infancy of the bull market. we're seeing tons of deals likes allergan-pfizer. this was really a defensive deal for shire because they were actually approached in 2014 by abve for a 54 million-dollar merger. you will see a lost m&a happen whether defensive or companies doing synergistic acquisitions to in order to drive revenue growth because we're in a slow-growth environment. dagen: i want to bring in anthony scaramucci in this. fda has been very favorable to these companies but you have drugmakers, story in the "wall street journal," still
7:55 am
raising prices, pfizer, amgen, allergan, horizon, many others raising prices on branded drugs anywhere from nine to 10%. that will be a huge issue on the campaign trail and could it hurt these stocks? >> well, it already has. look at valiant and some of the other stocks last year, dagen, they got pounded by this. so for us on the hedge fund side we actually got this wrong. we had very big health care exposure. if you look where the beta was in our portfolio we had misjudged this because of this sort of political debacle. if bernie sanders or secretary clinton become the president of the united states, these guys are going to get pounded by them. i don't think it's any chance that they will be able to survive these price rises. dagen: would you be long a lot of these companies? you say pricing headline risk is greating than the upside for acquisition? >> i think it's even. right now we would be neutral position on these companies because of the policy risk going forward makes the valuations uncertain to us.

dagen: good morning. i'm dagen mcdowell. maria bartiromo is on assignment. it is mon, january 11th. with me this morning this hour, skybridge capital's anthony scaramucci, morgan ortega, recon capital kevin kelly. joining the desk, fox news contributor and my friend, meghan mccain. let's check on wild markets. they didn't get any better. shanghai sliding 5% overnight. no, sir cut breakers to stop the flight or close the markets for the day. they got rid of those last week. china's central bank fixed yuan higher against the dollar. that was no elixir for nervous investors. european market searching for direction.
8:00 am
we have gains across the board, england, france and germany. we've got a gain of almost 3/4 of one percent. it would be a big week for markets her in the united states. look at futures, 49 point gain there. earnings season start this is afternoon. we got the news biotech companies are merging. shire, and baxalta. the pharmaceutical companies agreeing to a deal valued $32 billion cash and stock. concerns on the cost of crude oil. look what crude is trading at right now. we're off half a buck a barrel. trading below the $32 mark. this breaking news overnight, music legend david bowie has died. a statement posted to his social media pages, that bowie died of an 18 month battle with cancer. outcry and reaction around the globe was really overwhelming.
8:01 am
hard to find somebody who was not influenced by this man's music, this man's life. he turned 69 on friday. the same day day he released his latest and his last album. moving to el chapo, he is back in a mexican jail. was it because of actor sean penn? penn interviewed him for a story that was published in "rolling stone" over the weekend. according to mexican authorities, that contact meeting in october helped lead to el chapo's capture. the grip and smirk. i will say that all day. mexico formally starting process to extradite chapo to the u.s. preet bharara, the u.s. attorney here in new york is probing sean penn's contact with el chapo. ricky gervais, leave it to him as host of the golden globes to offer his take on sean penn. >> i want to do this monologue and then go into hiding, okay?
8:02 am
not even sean penn will find me. [laughter] snitch. dagen: more of mr. gervais and the golden globe westerns and losers coming up. we have to show you a photo of jane fonda's dress, please, let's get that ready. that was worth talking about. back to our top story, stocks in china falling overnight. shanghai stocks sinking 5% adding to a brutal first week of trading in 2016. jo ling kent is here with more. hey, jo. >> dagen, everyone is asking how low can it go. the chinese market selling off yet again. the finishing down 5.3% after central bank -- kospi in south korea was down more than 1%. japan was closed for a national holiday. also driving markets down, falling factory prices in december for the 46th month in a row. investors overall disappointed
8:03 am
the chinese central bank didn't introduce more easing measures over the weekend which is what they did last week but more action is expected in the coming months, maybe lower interest rates, cutting those bank reserves. dagen? dagen: thanks very much, jo ling kent in the newsroom for us. joining us from the cme, john brady. john, at least u.s. futures are not selling off that is about the only thing we have to hang our hat on at this point. >> that's right, dagen. last night we certainly opened up a little bit lower but i think a lot of that had to do with the fact that tokyo was closed. so there was thin market conditions early in trade last night. we found our balance a little bit. s&p futures bounced towards 1928, 1929 level which was breakdown from late friday night trade. overall volumes have been decent. most short-term technical indicators are flashing oversold. we're coming into earnings week
8:04 am
where sort of average earnings expectations are supposed to be down 4.1% for the second con tech tiff quarter f you strip out energy, earnings are expected to be up 1 1/2%. flashing indicators oversold and tokyo closed lending to illiquidity and bounce here in equity futures we'll start off with a very modest positive tone. dagen: anthony, i want to read something that charlie gasparino has been talk about most of the people he talks to are selling inventory moving into cash. they're looking to sell out of positions stocks, changed his word, because it stunk last year and uncertainty. a lot of future out there. talking about these hedge funds. do you see that anthony? this is your bread and butter. >> there is no question that the hedge fund industry has underperform at least in the last year. so you are seeing rotation back into structured credit. you're seeing rotation back into fixed income. you see guys like mark lazarus
8:05 am
at avenue capital moving what is energy distressed space. a lot of guys in the health care sector that actually got the merger activity right, dagen, but because ofpolitics, because of that famous tweet from secretary clinton earlier last year talking about the drug prices in the future those stocks did not do well. there is definitely a lot of uncertainty. you talked about a lot of cash being raised i think that is true. dagen: story in "wall street journal" cash levels of pen fun funds are highest they have been. pension and mutual funds told $200 billion in securities raising cash since 2014. highest pension funds at least since 2004. >> that is bullish sign. cash on the sidelines means any glimmer of good news they will start to allocate back into stocks. >> people are trying to see the factors, right, that will give a upside move.
8:06 am
there are a lot of risk factors implying downside move. chances are china could get worse before it gets better. u.s. markets still trading at historically high valuation basis. we're trying to figure out how stronger dollar will impact earnings as well as the price of oil and we just talked about that, right? we were in earnings recession. we have three quarters where earnings have gone down. people want to be in companies growing their revenues and there's very few of those. so there are overhangs. we'll need to see what happens in the earnings cycle. it is not earnings actually. it will be the guidance. that is what will drive market action. dagen: speaking of driving market action, maying began,dmeghan candidates on the right and left keel compelled to talk about the markets. donald trump throwing out idea of 45% tariff on chinese goods, he qualified that if china doesn't play right with his currency.
8:07 am
that is risk and causes more uncertainty with the headlines. >> i'm not like you guys specialize in finance and donald trump makes things easy and accessible. he talks in platitudes and hubris and talks about how he will fix everything. you're telling me that is risky move. he tells american public he will fix all the problems. people are being sicced talked down to. the last eight years the economy is not doing well and they want to feel safe and donald trump is telling them everything they want to hear. kind of like the guy you start dating and everything is perfect and loves you immediately, probably too good to be true. dagen: i predicted this summer on greg gutfeld's show over labor day i predicted that the summer romance would be never terms of trump. i was so wrong about that. he has gained and gained and gained. john, i want to bring in this point, it is hard to quantify the headline risk but is there risk and is that another reason to maybe carry more cash going into this year?
8:08 am
>> no, i think that's right. you're not going to get paid a whole lot for cash but you will not lose a whole lot specifically given inflationary backdrop. once upon a time before quantitative easing and zero interest rate policy cash would earn interest which would act as a way to diversify risk and lower overall volatility of a portfolio. it still can. you just don't get paid as much for it anymore. one thing that clients are talking about this morning, dagen, the fact that both the u.s. dollar and gold are moving higher and they have been moving higher for the better part of the last week which suggests in near term risk will still be under pressure most likely. seeing flight to quality in the dollar and seeing flight to quality in the second most important global currency which is gold. keep an eye on the relationship. dagen: john, good to see you. as always john brady. >> thank you. dagen. dagen: playboy mansion is up for

>> brand new fox news poll shows that trump and ted cruz leading the g.o.p. pack. blake burman is standing by with more. >> good morning to you, new year. the same story line, according
8:29 am
to the latest fox news poll. donald trump continues to rule the republican field. he has support from 35% of republicans nationwide. as you can see there, that puts him 15 clear of senator ted cruz in second. the showdown between those two though, trump and cruz in iowa remains with cruz ahead by 4 points, however, in new hampshire, trump regains his massive lead, extending it all the way to 18. the billionaire businessman raised eyebrows last week when the new york times editorial board said that trump favors a 45% tariff on imported chinese goods. yesterday on sunday morning futures, maria pressed trump about that figure. >> you did say you want to have a 45% tariff on exports coming into this country. correct? >> no, no, i said if they don't behave, that would be the number, that would be commensurate, yeah, i said if they don't behave. if they don't stop doing what they're doing with the devaluations in particular.
8:30 am
>> on the democratic side, dagen, fox news poll shows that hillary clinton continues to hold a strong lead nationally over bernie sanders, but clinton is not completely cruising. sanders leads by 13 in new hampshire and questions to a general election run, when matched up against the top tier republican candidates, clinton loses to trump by 3, cruz by 7, and senator marco rubio fares best with a 9 point edge. over the weekend, bernie sanders was trying to make the argument that he is the most electable democratic candidate. back to you. dagen: thank you, blake. blake burman. megan, it's going-- >> bernie sanders is the most electable candidate? okay. too early for that. but now what? he's appealing in part to the same person that donald trump is appealing to, somebody who is sick of not having any wage gains, who is just sick of not getting ahead in this country, and they have different messages, obviously, but it's
8:31 am
clearly working. look at the jobs report on friday. private sector average hourly earnings actually slipped in the most recent months, which kind of speaks to the sense of malaise and upset out there. >> they're both token anti-establishment candidates in an anti-establishment election and that's well and good. and you saw the glory days of primary campaigning are going to turn into a general. at a certain point you're going to have to reach out to nonrepublican voters, women, minorities, and traditionally don't do well. i want to beat hillary. i'm going to have to go on medication if there's another democrat in the white house. i'm not kidding. anything, anything that's going to sedate me. >> and in the last hour, anthony, you talked about how the extremes of both parties have been getting more powerful. there's a piece in the atlantic actually talking about this, talking about the rise of the liberal in the party and how they're actually bringing, of
8:32 am
course, hillary and bernie sanders farther and farther to the left. he's an avowed socialist and gets away with saying and democratic party doesn't condemn that, they're embracing it. m meghan, bloomberg says he may run as an independent. we could have a democrat, a republican and one or two major independent candidates this year. dagen: here is how hillary responded the difference between a democrat and a socialist-- she wouldn't answers it. >> she couldn't answer it. >> she won't answer it. >> why won't she answer it. >> because bernie sanders is reaching out to so many young people and demographics she's going to need and at a certainly point she's going to want his endorsement she probably won't get. she'll do and say anything and she doesn't want to make any more people mad. >> there's real pain out there. when you listen to the average american who is struggling. the average american cannot come up with $500 for an
8:33 am
emergency. and so, the bernie sanders sort of a message is compelling to a lot of people. one. things that the republican party failed at is explaining to the average american like speaker ryan was supposed to what can you do from an aspiration aspiration aspirational message. the average person is seeing there's one political party, the incumbents and that's why you're seeing the establish pt getting decimated across the board and they're saying whatever they can to keep pan doring to the electorate. donald trump with 45% tariff that would reduce a 20 year reduction of prices. think of the price of a computer 20 years ago, so he doesn't believe that. he's just trying to get votes. >> and i completely agree with what you just said and you just said, but the problem is when you get down to the meat and potatoes and voters start
8:34 am
paying attention looking at a man that will not say whether or not he's going to attack the american public, 90% of their income every day. >> it's about the simple solutions you said earlier. one of the reasons that trump has resonated with the republican party, he has a simple message, i'm going to fix it, the same as bernie sanders. >> i bernie sanders doesn't resonate with minority, a little secret. they like the t-shirt and the slogan it's kind of like obama light. and i have yet to find a bernie sanders supporter, call in if you can. and he's a folk hero for a demographic. >> they want free health care, they want free college education so they have these basically, these socialistic ideas. they would never be enacted, it would collapse the economy and take us back 20 years. dagen: how in the heck does
8:35 am
hillary clinton run on obama's record on the economy? >> i don't know, but on top of everything else, all of these e-mails that come out basically saying she got asked to send the nonsecure e-mails back and forth, everything come out with benghazi, i don't know anyone could believe her, she's a stone cold liar, bad for america, but i have faith in the american public, they'll not vote for her. dagen: that's it for now. tune in to lou dobbs, he'll announce the next lineup for the next presidential debate, the later event moderated by maria bartiromo and neil cavuto. don't miss a minute of it. mornings with maria starts at 6 a.m. eastern time on the fox business network. here are some of the best moments if you missed something from earlier in the show. >> david bowie was one of the people who not only made incredible music, but made it okay to just be weird and different. right? i think everybody can agree with that.
8:36 am
>> saudis are feeling the pain, i mean, just even consider an ipo at this point means that they feel there are major problems and that oil prices aren't going up anytime soon. >> it was a roaring 20's party. you know what? they didn't get the memo because the bubble burst at yahoo!. look what's happened since she's taken the helm. >> there is too much fed and central banks, everything, you're waking up and hearing something from another fed head or draghi or the dudes from japan. i wish they'd get out of the way, they've distorted pricing yields for too long. >> the last ten years of the crisis we're in the age of global macro intervention by governments. what are governments learning? only so much they can do and it's not working. >> and caused her to scratch her hair. dagen: you know how much i won this christmas, i didn't come close to winning back the price of the ticket. a buck for 25 tickets. well, go powerball.

>> the race for the white house hotter than ever with the latest fox news poll showing donald trump and ted cruz leading the g.o.p. pack ahead of the first republican presidential debate of the new year hosted by fox business this thursday, january 14th. let me bring this republican presidential candidate and kentucky senator rand paul. good it see you, thank you for being here. >> good morning. dagen: we've been talking with the markets, as horrible as they are, the worst start to a year ever for the dow and s&p
8:41 am
last week, even with the strong job numbers last month, even with unemployment at 5%. what would be the first thing that you'd do to turn this economy and this market around? >> well, you know, we're going to try to shed some light on it today. we'll have a vote on the fed. that's the first step because he think the fed is one of the most incredibly powerful and secretive of government institutions and i think we need to shed some light on it. i think the fed bears a lot of responsibility for the boom and bust cycle, particularly the real estate boom in the early 2000's that was devastating in 2008. the fed needs to be responsible for what they're doing and not doing in the economy. dagen: do you need legislation on that. there was a goa audit, it was inserted in the dodd frank bill. does the senate have the power to do that already? >> we had one single audit, but we don't have the power to have an annual audit and the audit
8:42 am
that we did have excluded the auditing of some of the most important activities of the fed that involved trillions of dollars, so, for example, when the gao auditor came before congress, she was asked what did you purchase with the $4 trillion during the 2008 crisis and she said she had no idea because it wasn't under her purview to have any knowledge of what the $4 trillion in assets, it's kind of a joke to think you're having an audit if you're not revealing what you buy with $4 trillion. dagen: well, in terms of the short-run and stabilizing the economy and getting wages up, you saw the average hourly earnings for private workers actually slipping last month. investigating the fed, auditing the fed. how would that change the average person's situation? >> well, when you think about it, you know, real household, median household incomes have been going down for about 15 years. people who are middle chas and working class has lost about 10% of their purchasing power
8:43 am
or more, eggs have doubled, white bread has gone up 50%. so, really, people are being squeezed and what the fed does, is it provides billions of dollars to very large banks to get to use the money first, but as the money trickles down into the system, the regular people, by the time they get it, they're getting no earnings on interest, but they're seeing their prices rise. so they're being squeezed. so when we talk about income inequality, there needs to be criticism of the fed. >> with the attacks in paris and san bernardino, the top issue has shifted once again to national security. the threat of terrorism and do you think that your noninterventionist policies or ideas have hurt you when a majority of americans in polls want more to be done when it comes to fighting middle east terror and more done over there? >> well, the good news is if you look at the last six polls
