5:11 am
yields are staying down is there's so much money out there locking for a very safe home. and i think that's the major thing. at some point rate wills go up and the bond market will be a troublesome place to be and i've actually that would happen for quite a while, but there's so much demand i think worldwide for bonds that that's keeping them -- >> you know, the yields down. lauren: good to see you at hoj's capital management. >> my pleasure. nicole: united our lines continues to make amends, listed a number of changes that it will make, they include a 10,000 incentive for voluntarily bump passengers on overbooked flights and reduce the amount of overbooking on flights, the

5:39 am
it'll be bullish for the entire market, i believe, but specially small cap stocks. lauren: which companies and he small caps are going to do best under this plan? >> if you look not just at the tax breaks but the decrease in regulations, that's probably as big as anything. you have much less regulations out there, a lot of the reason there hasn't been a lot of investment in companies and in entries but it's hard to do because of all the regulations. if you have lower taxes, a lot less regulation, money coming over from overseas and a much more bullish attitude, i think all stocks should do a lot better. that's really what the market has been telling you since the election. if you look at yesterday's action, the markets. >> slightly down but the strongest part of the market was the small caps, russell 2000 was up significant yesterday, i think that's directly related to
5:40 am
-- to the tax breaks coming for all companies. nicole: has been helping financials overall. do you suspect the trend in in the small caps to continue? >> i do, i do. and, you know, i mentioned earlier about there just hasn't been a lot of -- if you're in a very slow growth environment, like a lot of these big companies are and we have been in for a decade or more, you've got to grow, to keep your job, you have to grow and so what a company is going to need to do, they will need to go out and buy new businesses, they haven't been investing in plan or equipment or anything like that, what will they naturally do, go buy companies. i think you'll see a lot of m&a over the next couple of years and naturally small and miss-cap stocks would be the beneficiary of these companies lack of investment. at hodge's capital we specialize in the small and mid-cap world. so we think the outlook for that
5:41 am
group is as good as it's ever been. nicole: repatriation of millions of dollars as well. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure, thanks for having me on. lauren: united airlines continues efforts to make amends after a doctor was dragged off on overbooked flight. the airline listed number of changes, 10,000-dollar incentive for voluntarily bumped passengers on overbooked flights and united promise to reduce amount of overbooking on planes and increase training for its employees. let's take a look at shares more than 2% so far this year. nicole: a delta airlines passengers was removed passenger after he made emergency trip to the bathroom. you can see it happening right here. the passenger went to the restroom after he had to wait for nearly two hours on the tarmac for flight to take off.

5:44 am
reversal treatment made for people taking pradaxa that helps you clot normally again. don't take pradaxa if you've had a heart valve replacement or have abnormal bleeding. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor, as stopping increases your risk of stroke or blood clots. tell your doctor before any planned medical or dental procedure, or before stopping pradaxa. pradaxa can cause serious, but rarely fatal bleeding. seek immediate medical help with signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems, stomach ulcers, a bleeding condition, or take certain medicines. side effects can include indigestion, stomach pain, upset or burning. ask your doctor about pradaxa and its reversal treatment available nationwide.

nicole: good morning, 5:45 ear in new york, let's get you caught up on what's happening now. president trump says he's no longer thinking of withdrawing from the north america free trade agreement, nafta, in fact, the white house said president trump and the leaders of méxico and canada agreed during a phone call to renegotiate the treaty. president trump's economic team and would slash top rate for corporations and small businesses down to 15% and also reduce the number of tax brackets from 7 to 3. and double the standard deduction for individuals and could you please filing jointly. a long list of companies
5:46 am
reporting earnings today including amazon.com, microsoft and google parent alphabet. let's check out u.s. stock market futures right now. dow futures up 10, s&p futures up a half a point, nasdaq futures up 2, durable goods and gdp today and tomorrow. lauren: fox news poll show voters care about fixing health care system than reforming taxes, half of those voters want all or part of obamacare repeal and now house republicans are pretty close to cutting a new deal on a new bill to replace it. joining us now to talk about this is political analysts kristen haglung. it seems we have conservatives on board, what about the moderates? >> hey, we are in with this bill which is a good news and good step forward. moderates have a lot of red meat because it leads preexisting
5:47 am
conditions for coverage in place and has waiver. they have brokered on nice compromise at least. what's going to be interesting to see if they are able to get the votes for a, you know, for a vote on this. >> what do you think? do you think they will get a vote this week? >> it could come as early as this week. they are looking for a symbolic vote on saturday which would be president trump's 100th day and great pr move, but they want to avoid something like that happened in march where they kind of did this -- a lot of anticipation and run up to the vote and at tend of the day not have the votes. we will see but it could come as early as this week. lauren: they have to get the language in tonight because of the three-day rule. that's what you have to do. does it have a chance of making it through the senate? >> that's where the moderation is going to come in. that's where moderates feel, okay, if we don't have everything we want, once it goes through the senate that you will have moderation there. and we will see.
5:48 am
you've got a lot of senators, tom cotton, ben sass, another, the house language is not something that they are on board with. those are senators that are looking to up their game and increase their profile for 2020 and beyond. so the senate is where where you're going to get a lot of debate. americans really want -- this hits them in their pocketbook hard and more than anything they want to make sure that the premiums go up and the house compromise bill does allow states a lot more leverage to make that happen. nicole: the money that was supposed to be from the new repeal and replace of obamacare was supposed to be used for the tax cut. what is the importance and the relevance between one and the other and how important is it that both snases. >> right. of course, it's important because president trump made this a priority during the campaign but the difficult things is these are two extremely complex industries to reform and health care refers to one industry where as tax reform
5:49 am
involves every industry. the tax reform bill that president trump layed out does repeal the obamacare tax and there are a lot of taxes in that bill. so both being done in conjunction or at least with the other in mind is most important or take their time, don't rush it and make this good for the american people. lauren: kristen, thank you for joining thus morning. nicole: coming up amazon's newest version of the echo has a camera for you and can answer a question, hey, does this look good on me? we will tell you about that. boston celtics take 3-2 lead over chicago bulls as it closes out the series friday. one yankee celebrates a very special birth as the yankees beat the red sox, we will have all the highlights for you in sports, you're watching fbn:am, keep it right here, morning mars with xfinity x1...
