6:04 am
program. the book is managing money to saving souls in the streets of new york, your reaction yesterday? >> the cathedral in middle ages were thought to be a place where god came onto earth, heaven on earth and they built these cathedrals, what really allowed them to build these heights with these glass walls which without any steel only with stone, figured out how to do that and when you went inside notre dame which was always the first place i would visit when i go to paris, you get a sense that you're in heaven on earth and to watch this come down just very tragic. maria: it really is.
6:05 am
no money that could be given to replace what this cathedral represents and what it represents in its form. it's sad, why did you write this book, the missionary of wall street? >> i wrote it, maria, because we have been doing this for a decade now in the streets of new york and a lot centered around holy week actually, i found over 10 years the book is full of conversations with people about faith and people of faith increasingly we've kind of pulled back inside or own walls, you know, the dialogue is increasingly secular and it's really meant to inspire people and go out there and talk to people and if you do it and engage them in joyful loving way you can have amazing conversations, actually last night we start the mission again this week and we get a lot of french people at this time of year and the french people, beautiful poynant story about light and darkness, but last
6:06 am
night we had some french tourists with us and, you know, we ended up just praying in the church together. it's very tough for them. maria: i'm sure it is and how beautiful to be able to get the gathering together and incredible that this tragedy takes place in the beginning of holy week, it's almost -- it's amazing. >> it's amazing. maria: timing of it right before easter and castover and the jewish religion as well. you have been one of leading investment officers in terms of calling it right. we have earnings coming up letter than expected, blackrock this morning we are waiting on, how would you characterize the earning season and the backdrop for investing today? >> it's going okay, maria, i think most people are looking at the fact that by now it's clear we've gone through a soft patch,
6:07 am
by march we start today reemerge. i'm not sure how much -- how bad earnings need to be or less bad for the market to go up. our idea is the market is looking forward now and sees all the stimulus coming out. we will get the china deal soon and virtually the entire market, all thinking it's going to roll over, people focused on earnings, but everyone knows that earnings is for a quarter that was particularly weak and a lot of companies will get a hall pass, provide guidances it's okay, that's what we have seen so far. maria: many people are looking beyond what are expecting to be, decline in earnings but looking more toward the end to have year in 2020 for any guidance from the companies, have you been able to glean in trend in terms of guidance for the company? >> well, we are seeing, maria, coming into the quarter earnings are starting to tick up again for the last year, we were in the last 6 months down trend and
6:08 am
now we are seeing earnings pick-up, i think that will continue to happen through the quarter and the market is cheap on that basis, right? maria: you still want to buy stocks? >> we put out a piece last night talking about a melt-up. we had a big move but all we've done right now we trace where we were, we really haven't gone higher yet. maria: you know you have the fed on your side? >> i have the fed and ecb and about to get china. maria: that's true, all really good things. >> fundamentals are good. maria: thank you for the book missionary of wall street very nice to start interview with that, taking a look at what you've written in the face of this tragedy that we've all watched yesterday. >> yeah, it's a good read. maria: at&t selling its stake in hulu, dagen with lots of implications. dagen: hulu had long way to go
6:09 am
before it ever looks anything like netflix, at&t sold minority stake in hulu back to the overall company with 9 and a half percent stake for $1.43 billion, here is the headline, this values hulu at around $15 billion, what is netflix worth? 150 billion, netflix, 139 million, who are the owners of hulu that are left, wallet disney owns roughly 60% stake after buying assets of former parent company 21st century fox and comcast holds a 30% share in the business, those two companies have to come together and figure out, you look at the ownership, they did have to figure out how to divvy up the 9 and a half percent stake, a, the and warner media selling this, developing its own, new on-demand video streaming service.
6:10 am
as for disney, not to complicate things, disney unveiled disney plus last week, it's going to have star wars, the marvel films and espn plus and will continue to operate hulu obviously, unclear how the new ownership is going to impact what hulu keeps in library and in terms of streaming services there's another one that has something to crow about and that's hbo, paid channel but also hbo now and hbo go streaming platforms and game of thrones the premier of final season of game of thrones came in with record for debut season, that was an 8% jump from the season 7 premier that did include all the streaming services there. this is the most popular show in hbo's history, more popular than the sopranos. i can't figure that one out myself, what again what have you done for me lately is the question that hbo has to answer
6:11 am
now that this incredible series is going away, maria. maria: well, look, what really struck me at&t accidentally streaming game of thrones hours before it was suppose today debut, dagen. dagen: what are you doing? what are you doing to us here? in terms of game of thrones, do i want to point out that hbo is apparently working on prequels, potential game of thrones prequels, i'm still in season 3. maria: let's not forget, a company that acquired hbo and wants to get all, you know, content, at&t does and then they release it hours early. dagen: i used to subscribe to hulu live, $45 a month, live programming, now youtube tv which i shut down my hulu tv because it was awful, the interface is terrible. in my opinion, i'm on youtube tv now and it cost -- it's going up
6:12 am
to about $50 a month and worth every dollar. maria: let's see what comes out of merminged -- merged company. blackrock earnings hit the tape, we have the numbers finally, ashley webster. ashley: good morning, 661, estimate was 61 3-rbgs revenue on 3.35 billion, that's a beat just the estimate was 3.1 billion, just looking at assets under management that's back up to 6.52 trillion, if you remember in the fourth quarter for blackrock they saw a lot of outflows, a lot of volatility and the number had dropped before 6 trillion to 5.98, this is a good sign for the company, more clients putting their money back in and blackrock, of course, seeing that number
6:13 am
rising very nicely, indeed, so there you have it, i'd say the headline numbers are pretty strong here, assets under management is strong, long-term net inflows of 59 billion, that's a strong number as well, the operating margin coming in close to 37% above what is expected, maria? >> what's the aum number. $6 trillion earlier. ashley: 6.52 trillion. maria: incredible. maria: coming up lori louglin pleading not guilty. cutting military aid, that's what alexandria ocasio-cortez believes the u.s. should consider, the controversy coming up, stay with us some things are out of
6:14 am
your control. like bedhead. hmmmm. ♪ rub-a-dub ducky... and then...there's national car rental. at national, i'm in total control. i can just skip the counter and choose any car in the aisle i like. so i can rent fast without getting a hair out of place. heeeeey. hey! ah, control. (vo) go national. go like a pro.
6:15 am
6:16 am
6:17 am
maria: welcome back, big program, former chairman and ceo of google, johnson & johnson cfo executive vice president joseph walk is here on the heels of earnings, chief economic adviser mohamed joining us along with fox senior strategist analyst jack keane, dr. john sexton is here. we want to talk now with great panel cutting military and economic aid to israel, that is what freshman congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez is suggesting, she says it should certainly be on the table during podcast she went onto describe newly reelected prime minister benjamin netanyahu like a trump-like figure.
6:18 am
former presidential candidate steve forbes and bob nardeli. >> the democratic party these days mcing more antisemitic and what's shocking is the leadership doesn't call them out on it, pelosi, the speaker is taking shots at aoc but they really haven't gone after the bad members of their caucus. maria: when her colleague made comment about benjamins it was hard for leader pelosi to denounce it. they wanted to come out with a bill anti-semitism, no, no let's do antihate, they had a hard time denouncing it, why? >> because the base of the
6:19 am
party, the activists more and more antiisrael and they will say it's antisemitic and they will peel it away. omar came out talking about the benjamins, doublenationty and that kind of thing and so they all fear in that caucus the activists will come after them in primary, they want to avoid that. maria: that's what they're doing. dagen: congressman omar's comments go way beyond about the comments about the benjamin, antisemitic probe, they go back as far as i can see to at least 2012 of things she has said online on social media, on twitter and the likes, this is not something new in terms of the rhetoric used by this congresswoman, number 2, israel, the most critical ally of the united states in the middle east
6:20 am
. i've said this before, when you marginalize and try and quiet this kind of antisemitic rhetoric, you are normalizing anti-semitism and it wasn't that long ago this kind of thinking led to the murder of 6 million jews and i think the democrats need to think long and hard about normalizing and making it okay to speak this way about the jewish people. maria: you're absolutely right, i can not head around it why they could not denounce it. you're right in terms of primaries, that's what aoc is doing right now. she's trying to come up with replacements for people like jerry nadler who is the chairman of the judiciary committee right now and they're all worried that she is going to come up with
6:21 am
candidates to take them out, so yesterday nancy pelosi, she went after aoc in a back-handed way, she said yesterday, any democrat could have won ocasio-cortez's district, watch this. >> when we won this election it wasn't in districts like mine or alexandria, however, to the wonderful member of congress, all of our colleagues will attest but those are districts that are solidly democratic. maria: glass of water. >> interesting speaker pelosi has distanced herself. when she was asked the other day about that, there's only 5 or 6 of them, and the interviewer said, she's progressive and speaker said, well, i'm progressive too and so it's going to be an interesting, i think, set of situations going forward. maria: we will see about that.
6:22 am

maria: welcome back, college admission scandal after lori louglin and her husband pled not guilty, among dozens of people charge sod far, the list, of course, including felicity hoffman agreed to plea guilty, children of those charged are notified, could be subject to criminal investigation. that's according to new york times, joining me president of new york university, standing for reason, the university, john sexton is here, john, great to see you. >> great to see you, maria.
6:26 am
congratulations on the book, we are getting first crack at you, the book is out this week and, of course, we are in the middle of all this news as it relates to the university, so let's talk about first your reaction to college admission scandal. i want to ask you about getting into college, why this has become so difficult and expensive, but your reaction first? >> it underscores higher education is and what a difference matching students with the right college is. in the life of a child going forward, if you want to begin to track good policy you should look at all the people are doing that have all the voices and all the resources and the scandal is rooted in the fact that there's an appreciation for a really good college education. maria: that's a really important point actually, you're right, but now that's up for debate. >> no, no. maria: look at skill sets that
6:27 am
are needed for the way to thrive, you know what, i'm too expensive, i'm not going to university. very few people are saying that, the people as i say with all the choices and information aren't behaving that way, they are hiring tutors for students to do expensive schools. it's strull chuirl, this was bad people acting badly, if you go back to book written almost 15 years ago by the former president of princeton reclaiming the game, he talks about the problem created by an overemphasis on athletics in our universities. he talks in best schools 40% of the men are admitted by coaches, recruited athletes, so this is below the surface, why are we emphasizing sports so much, nyu does division 3, we learned 50 years with basketball scandals that this can be a source,
6:28 am
scholar athletes are important but they shouldn't drive the process of education. maria: i'm glad that you mentioned that, full disclosure i'm on the board of nyu and i'm proud to be part of the university's trustees board, have you ever seen anything like this in terms of this scandal where a coach is going to decide and get the kid in and say -- have you ever seen anything like this? >> the kid is the best thrower in the world. maria: she wasn't. were a kid shouldn't do it the drawing. let's look at the structural problem. when this all started in what was first athletic league, the ivy league it was about scholar athletes, charles elliot of harvard said 2 cheers for harvard and 3 cheers for yale, different emphasis than the show that's driven in part by the media. maria: how does this happen?
6:29 am
let me ask you about the book, you wrote a book, standing for reason, the university in dogmatic age, why have things become so dogmatic? >> you know, 60 years ago as a catholic in brooklyn i was taught that my faith was the only way to heaven. 60 years later i can be in a conversation with leaders of 25 religions about how we benefit by seeing the world through each other's views, meanwhile as theology has moved our politics has moved in the other direction. my father was head of jefferson democratic and streets cleaned and today we have politics by revelation not reason. we somehow get our political views from outside. we are alegger toik nuance and complexity and the case i make in the book is that our universities are uniquely suit today play the role of against
6:30 am
this nuance and complexity. they should be places for real dialogue, genuine dialogue the way i used to do it and the way you use today do it in competitive debate, you didn't know which side you were on until the coin was flipped and you had to listen to the opponent in order to answer the argument. maria: which is why people want to see more diversity in the university across the board in academia, is enough diversity, thought from both sides, liberal and conservative? >> if you had been at the law school faculty meeting last week where i was you would have seen intellectual debate and diversity. again, there's a lot of press around this and a few stories drive it but with tens, maybe hundreds of thousands of speakers coming to campus the examples were either the left amendments to suppress the right or vice versa come to a few dozen a year, so, again, this is a distortion, i think, of what
6:31 am
actually goes on in our campus, probably would surprise your listeners to know that polling over decades has shown that conservative members of faculty feel more comfortable on campus and that the dominant political stripe of faculty members at the top 10 universities in the country is -- is moderate, not liberal, not conservative. maria: john, the book is so important and you studied religion and taught religion for many years, no doubt you have a reaction to what took place yesterday in paris. notre dame. >> this is not just a matter of religion, although, the cry of humanity when they build such things over centuries there's more to life, it's part of what's at stake, this is civilization and we lost one of the great artifacts of civilization but we will rebuild it in the same way the athenians
6:32 am
rebuilt athens and the way new yorkers rebuilt new york and that will show impulse of civilization is with us. maria: that's the kind of optimism that's in the book this morning, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you, maria. maria: such a sad day, dr. john sexton on nyu. latest on border battle, president trump's plan to send illegal immigrants to sanctuary cities. shares of ride-sharing company down this morning

6:38 am
2,000 miles walking up the journey, it's a big con job is what it is. maria: visiting the u.s.-méxico border today, house homeland security member john joyce, congressman, good to have you on the program. >> good morning, maria, greetings from phoenix. maria: tell us what you're expecting and what can you assess from what you've learned? >> we are here to look and see, the shine the light os what's going on in southern border, we know that last month over 100,000 undocumented aliens presented themselves to our border. are workers here are finding that hundred thousand came between ports of entry, had we built the wall, we would be protected and i come from a

district in south central pennsylvania, heroin and fentanyl through southern border have devastating impact on my district. find out what's important and work harder to support and strengthening southern border. maria: i think you have to do more than shining light, flores settlement, the asylum standards, the fact that 70% of the people are coming from this triangle of countries where we can't even send them back there, are you going to get with your colleagues and write some legislation as senator lindsey graham said will do to fix loopholes in immigration law? >> and representative doug collins has done so additionally. we need to raise the standard for asylum seekers, we need to be able to return unaccompanied children to their homes and to their families.
6:40 am
this legislation is there and by working to see what's going on here and working across the aisle and letting the democrats know how important it is, the message that we are receiving here on the southern border, i will take back to washington and work to vote for this legislation that will strengthen our southern border. >> congressman, steve forbes here, some people suggest using some of the old-mobile homes from the katrina storm and sending them to southern border and housing these people and having judges come in to hear their cases 2, 4 weeks, measures like that, short-term can deal with this influx people instead of letting them wander around the united states. >> i think the impact has to be addressed very certify -- seriously, we as legislators -- >> yeah, what's being done right now practically that could deal
6:41 am
with humanitarian crisis? >> what is being done right now is not enough, we need to go back and vote to put more energy to do what the president wants, to secure the southern border, to make us stronger, to stem the tide of undocumented that come here, to change what the asylum seekers are looking for to achieve, to strengthen our border, our defense has been incredibly weaken and my job as a member of homeland security is to fact-find, to take this and allow the democrats to work with us to make for a stronger legislative team and to protect our country from this massive influx that's occurring. maria: congressman, stay with us, we have to look at johnson & johnson earnings, ashley webster as we see j&j beating expectations with first quarter, ashley. ashley: they are, certainly on add gisted basis on earnings per share, 2.10, 2.03 was estimate as you can see on the screen,
6:42 am
20 billion, slightly higher than 19.6 that was estimated. you know, it's interesting the consumer business for johnson & johnson was pretty sluggish and overall this quarter up 7%, 3.3 billion, the pharmaceutical side of the business doing better, that's up 7.9% year over year, 10.2 billion, the guidance on the earnings guidance just up a little bit from the latest there from the last quarter estimate, the revenue guidance, though, is pretty much unchanged. you can see, premarket, the stock moving slightly higher, just up 6 tenths of a percent, maria. maria: thank you so much, we are back with congressman john joyce, i want to tell you about op-ed bus bill mcgurn wrote op-ed, the fbi needs grand jury, saying, quote, if the federal bureau of investigation is to recover lost reputation, the first item on the attorney general william barr's agenda is
6:43 am
make good on something that set off frenzy, honest accounting on spying of the presidential campaign of donald trump, he urge it is use of grand jury, congress, what's your reaction to this, we know what took place in 2016 election, we have all democrats going nuts trying to find out complete unredacted mueller report. maybe we need to go back to mueller report and mueller investigation all the way back to fbi investigation and find out what the origins were as bill mcgurn writes. >> i think, maria, we need a level playing field, if this investigation, this 25 million-dollar lengthy investigation on the president which showed no collusion, we put that to rest. it's time to move on and if there were other investigations, if there were other unsavorily activities that were occurring, they should be evaluated as well. maria: all right, we will leave it there, congressman, good to

6:45 am
almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis.

[laughter] >> listen, $2,900, $241 to live on a month. this refund is not a bonus check, this is your hard-working nan the government has been

6:56 am
refund, what should they do in terms of college fund? >> well, it's really important, steve, thank you, good to see you too, my friend. i advice people to take a look at educational savings account or 529 as a way to save for college. many ways for kids to get a higher education, this is not something that you feel the whole burden on but you can definitely help once you begin to help yourself. >> hey, chris, bob nordeli here, you mentioned at times to build on steve's comment that a lot of millennials are saying that, you know, college education isn't worth it and, you know, speaking for myself not a millennial, of course, but i tell you i'm blessed to have been able to get a college education and has helped me significant. what's the advice out there about -- about college? >> well, bob, i can tell you this, you know, looking at studies a lot of millennials regretting the student loans. i don't think it's necessarily

maria: welcome back. good tuesday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us many i'm maria bartiromo. happy tuesday. it is tuesday, april 16th. tragedy at notre dame cathedral yesterday. i'm sure you've seen it, officials are inspecting the damage after firefighters put out the blaze. hundreds of millions of dollars have already been pledged to rebuild this paris landmark. incredible story. incredible pictures. earnings the focus on wall street this morning, bank of america with a slight miss on revenue. johnson & johnson with a double beat, better than expected earnings and revenue. united health rebounded following its earnings as well. take a look at the stock. united health is up 1 and a
7:01 am
third percent. futures are very strong. no real economic data or reason for this triple digit rally this morning. the dow industrials are up 115 points. s&p futures are up 9. the nasdaq futures up 31. yesterday, financials were a drag on the markets and we had a mixed showing at the close. dow industrials were down 27 points, s&p 500 gave up 1 point and the nasdaq was down 8 points at the close on wall street yesterday. in europe this morning, mixed story, mostly higher. fq100 up 30 points, cac in paris down 3 and the dax index in germany up 69. in asia overnight markets up, as you see there, telecoms were higher. shanghai composite was the best performer, up 2 and a third percent. the jee german zoo survey was on germany, not a reaction to stability in terms of economic expectations there. military cuts. alexandria ocasio-cortez is facing criticism this morning after she said that the u.s. should consider cutting military and economic aid to israel. a dramatic finish, a marine

7:03 am
to handle it all. maria: is that the best part of the pitch, if you change jobs, you getting coverage? is that all you got in terms of the positive for this? dagen: i was listening to what he was saying and i was saying you can call it medicare for all but medicare as we know it -- seniors love it. they're consuming way more healthcare than they ever paid in to cover over time. that's why literally in seven years the hospital trust -- the hospital insurance fund, for medicare, it goes broke. it runs out of money, benefits get cut to 91-cents on the dollar, that's all that could be covered by the money flowing into the program. why don't you fix that before you try to expand that and sell this crazy idea to the american people. >> we have a lot of companies that provide services to healthcare and when we talk to a lot of the doctors, some of them won't take it because of the
7:04 am
bureaucracy and the amount of time it takes to fill out the forms. steve, they're collapsing the number of categories that you can actually bill through medicare. so i think you're right, dagen. they've got to fix what we have, and again, no -- i love our veterans, but if you look at the federally run service to our veterans, and i noe know he'll argue against this, but that's not a good role model for healthcare for all. dagen: he did argue against that, by the way. >> i know. dagen: i will say this. when you have a government-run insurance program, it means price controls and it means rationing and doctors that won't accept it. >> sounds like bernie sanders should be selling stuff on nighttime tv, have i got a deal for you. [ laughter ] >> this one, absolutely right, the only way they control costs in europe and elsewhere is through rationing, making you way or denying you coverage. we all know the story in england, you need kidney

7:07 am
look at this. reports say precious artifacts including the crown of thorns have been saved. france's president is vowing to rebuild. more than $200 million has been promised. one family is pledging more than $100 million and henr henry kraz decided to contribute $10 million. i'm sure they're not the last. we'll see this amazing landmark rebuilt. maria: it's great to see those people come forward and donating. it's a busy morning on the earnings calendar. ashley webster with the details. we just got j & j, which is better than expected. ashley: let's focus on bank of america and united health. start with b of a, the giant bank on the earnings side, beating on a per share basis by four cents. profit actually rose year over year. that's the good news.
7:08 am
there was also bad news for bank of america. sales and trading revenue down 18%, equity trading revenue down 22%, to $1.2 billion, leading the ceo, brian moynihan at bank of america to say this has been a challenging capital markets environment in the first quarter. that revenue number coming in about what was expected, at $23 billion, just a little shy, perhaps, of the actual estimate of $23.3 billion. but overall, trading revenue a big market for the big banks down in the first quarter for bank of america. and as you can see, overall not too bad. the stock actually went down on the news initially but has come back a little bit. united health, a much roseyer outlook overall, boosting full year profit outlook, premiums up nearly 8%. the earnings per share beating by 1 13-cents. revenue also beating nicely at
7:09 am
$60.3 billion. that's up by the way, revenue up 9% year over year. the real crown jewel for united health is the optum segment of the company and the health, the insight, the rx, a all of those numbers showing positively. united health revenue $48.9 billion, all in all, united health a solid report. maria: ashley, thank you so much. the stocks are rea actin reactis morning on united health, up 2.5%. johjohnson & johnson as well, revenue of $20.01 billion, the numbers beat analyst expectations on the top and bottom lines. joining us right now is johnson & johnson cfo and executive vice president joseph walt. good to have you on the program. thank you for being here. characterize the quarter for us, what drove the business in the last three months? >> so we're extremely proud of the accomplishments of our global associates across the
7:10 am
company. we had highlights in all three of our segments. a great start for the year. pharmaceuticals, there was concerns in the investment community about how much impact generic erosion would have. we were able to stem that with great performance in our core products across immunology, neuroscience, oncology and pulmonary hypertension. we were also able to look longer term too and get some new products approved for patients that are going to have valuable meaning in their lives. in medical devices, we continue an upbeat trend. our best quarter of growth since 2016. and we're looking forward to achieving market performance or better next year. in consumer, we did see a little bit of a slowdown with respect to the overall market but we're very encouraged by the strong share performance we had, particularly in over-the-counter medicines such as tylenol which regained its number one status across analgesics and neutrogena continues to perform very well within the beauty space.
7:11 am
>> bob marc nardelli here. there was early speculation that corporate earnings were not going to be very strong this year, that they would be down significantly year over year. so the percentage may be lower. but you guys certainly had a gooquarter. projections for the balance of the year, sustainable? you talk about good consumer drugs and opportunities. what's the forecast look -- give us the real story. >> yeah, so bob, if you look at our guidance that we provided in january, we're actually more confident today in that guidance. we were able to take up this morning our operational performance. that's being offset by a stronger u.s. dollar, but again, for the business overall we think the outlook is very strong and then once we have the opportunity to anniversary some of the impacts from generic erosion on a few key products for us, you look out to 2020, it looks extremely bright. we're very optimistic about the future. nice thing about our results this quarter, bob, we were actually able to increase our
7:12 am
investment in r&d by about 19%. so while the short-term looks very, very promising, we're even more emboldened by the long term. >> steve forbes here. you mentioned about r&d for the future. have you had a chance to really gauge the impact if the government has more and more controls on drug pricing, what that's going to do to innovation at your company and other companies, if government puts more and more price controls on? >> yeah, so steve, i don't know that i can do a better job than what you did at the outset of the segment. but the u.s. system needs some fixes but let's be clear. it is clearly the best system in the world. it inspires innovation. we've got the best scientific developmentses here in the u.s. and then i just take it from the simple standpoint of you'd have about 180 million people who would lose employer provided health benefits day one of this plan. and then you look at access and
7:13 am
choice which is important for u.s. citizens. we've got a great product, a life-saving product known as darvolex for mulle multiple mye. that was available here in the u.s. earlier than no where elsee in the world. maria: what is the plan, in terms of generics going offline? >> we're going to have a great opportunity to share our complete pipeline with analysts on may may 15th on analyst day. we had two significant approvals, one for treatment resistant depression. in the u.s., we had 45,000 suicides last year. about three-quarters of those had some correlation to treatment resistant depression. this is a novel mechanism of action where patients haven't had a new treatment or therapy within about three decades. so it's great for our business. but it's even better for patients. and then just three days ago we had an approval for bol
7:14 am
development rsa, a treatment for bladder cancer. it was approved in conjunction with a diagnostic, it's about 20,000 patients in the u.s. that suffer from bladder cancer. this diagnostic could identify a genetic alteration and if we applied balversa20% will benefit and stop tumor growth. we're optimistic about our pharmaceutical pipeline and great innovation. maria: what is your answer to he getting drug prices down? >> we believe we've taken a lead at johnson & johnson. it's great for our company, it's great for the industry, great for the healthcare system, more transparency. three years ago, we were the first company to lead with a transparency report. we just issued our third annual. it indicated we decreased net pricing by 6.8%. we're having all this great success based on innovation, despite price decreases.
7:15 am

this week studen steven mnuchind me, i asked him about the talk about a recession and slowdown globally. secretary, what can you tell us in terms of the idea there's a recession on the horizon. the other day i said i don't know why everybody's head is on fire in terms of the recession, we got great jobs numbers, great numbers from the banking sector. we're talking about year 10 in this recovery. is there any signs of a recession in 2020? >> maria, i don't see any signs of that. i think the only thing that people look at is the yield curve. i think the yield curve implies the market's expectation that the fed will lower rates and nothing more than that. maria: e.-wise capital confidence barometer revealed recession fears subsided in the c-suite. joining us now is kelly grier. good to have you on the program this morning. >> thank you. maria: this new survey just out, tell us what you found. >> literally just issued
7:25 am
yesterday, our 20th capital confidence barometer which surveys about 515c-suite executives on their general sentiment of the economy and their anticipated deal making activities and as you referenced, maria, the survey results were actually very strong, indicate a very strong and very positive business sentiment from the survey respondents, a full 96% of those surveyed have indicated that they believe that the economy in the u.s. is strengthening, up 27% over the prior year, a significant increase in overall sentiment around the economic outlook. maria: are they putting their money where their mouths are? are they investing in cap ex? are they increasing numbers in terms of what they're allocating capital to? >> absolutely. it's really a multifaceted capital deployment strategy we're seeing. cap ex was up last year by 17%, a pretty significant increase. in addition, we're seeing significant deal making activity
7:26 am
as well. so in the outlook is that that will continue. our respondents are indicating that over 50% of them are actuallactually planning some sf m&a activity in the coming year. if you look at those from companies over $5 billion in revenue it jumps to 79%. so both organic and inorganic investments and growth strategies very much on the horizon. >> you're in the boardroom, in the c-suite of certainly the fortune 500. we were talking earlier, i think you're seeing a lot of change relative to capital allocation. your point, i think they're much more sensitive to changes is the only -- change is the only constant. we saw a lot more privatization. we had an all-time record of disinvestment, right, and taking private. what are you hearing about that for '19? >> it's a great question. ceos and boards are really engaged in a much more
7:27 am
continuous portfolio realignment assessment. and so we are seeing a lot more divestitures and spin-offs and privatization of certain businesses in connection with spin-offs. but i would say, bob, it really is more in conjunction with the innovation a agenda, the technology agenda, really keeping pace with the profound change and how technologies is really disrupting business and wanting to stay ahead of that. >> how is the overseas outlook, how is that affecting their optimism? >> it's a great question. the sentiment that i described is predominantly on the domestic market. it's mixed when you encompass over parts of the globe. clearly, there's less buoyancy in the em y emea market, across europe. >> they don't feel it will affect the u.s. economy very much. >> they believe the growth ambitions and growth projections reflect some tempering of the
7:28 am
economic buoyancy in europe. i would say it's reflected in the sentiment. dagen: kelly, really quickly. what can you anticipate how ceos will react as we get into the presidential election season? because you heard the ceo of j & j talking about there are plans out there by your frontrunner, according to some polls, bernie sanders, to rip up a giant part of our economy in terms of health insurance in this country and healthcare, 18 180 million people would lose private health insurance. how could ceos across the spectrum react to that as the rhetoric picks up? >> it's a really great question. i think that the past two, three years have really created a totally different level of sort of ras rationality and long-term thinking by ceos. i don't think it's practical to react to every political speech, particularly as we start to heat
7:29 am
up -- we start to t get into more of the campaign season, if you will. and a lot of that rhetoric will come to pass and ultimately very different forms of policy-making. so i think ceos are fairly sensible in how they're reacting or not over-reacting to the current political current and commentary. maria: that was a big number, 50% going to do deals. >> absolutely. maria: looking for acquisitions. >> in a market that's already very strong. so absolutely. >> you said bigger deals, right? >> absolutely. >> on a dollar basis. maria: great to have you, kelly. kelly grier joining us there. bernie's big night, we have highlights from last night's fox news town hall where bernie sanders addressed his own wealth and medicare for all. honoring america's heroes this morning, one marine paying tribute to fallen comrades, crawling to the finish line at the boston marathon. back in a moment.

the $561,000 plus last year. now, when he was asked about it last night, sanders insisted making that kind of money is not a testament to capitalism or the american dream, instead arguing that the point is other people don't have the same advantages that he does. here he is again. >> what we want is a country where everybody has opportunity. you know, i have a college degree. i'm a united states senator. a lot of people don't have a college degree, a lot of people are not united states senators. i want everybody in this country to be able to have healthcare, to have education, so when they turn on the water have drinkable water, not toxic water. so what we are fighting for, brett, is a society not where just a few people can make a whole lot of money, but a society where everybody in this country has the opportunity to live in security and dignity. >> reporter: now, there was a lot of back and forth on those
7:38 am
types of issues, taxes, healthcare, sanders' plan for medicare for all and the question came up from brett and from martha mccallum about how senator sanders pa san might pa. as you might expect, the answer to that, higher taxes. maria: thank you so much. connell mcshane this morning. reaction. >> first, how many of those books were sold on amazon, a company he does not like? number two, look at his charitable contributions, very puny for a guy who wants to save humanity. beto o'rourke, you need a microscope to find his. dagen: less than $5,000 for charity through 2014 through 2017 for beto o'rourke and his wife. that's what that gave to charity. >> in terms of his big, big signature issue, as we were discussing earlier, medicare for all means healthcare for less people. you're going to get less healthcare because the only way they do it is through rationing.
7:39 am
i wish somebody would throw it at them. on medicare, it's subsidized by the rest of the population. it's not covered by those trust funds. and raising taxes hurts the economy and he hasn't learned yet the only way you get the resources to pay for these things is with a vibrant economy and i will ask him and any other candidate what high tax country has ever taxed its way to prosperity. zero. >> real quick, i may be wrong interpretation of free, but free education would mean the faculty doesn't get paid. the utilities are provided free. the people generating the utilities don't get paid. i mean, that's what i think free is. i may have a wrong interpretation. [ laughter ] maria: you thought he did a good job. dagen: i think the republicans will need to have a very, very coherent argument why -- they call it medicare for all. it's single payer. why that would be devastating to the country, why 180 million people would get kicked off private insurance. if a company or individual
7:40 am
doesn't like its insurance provider, you can find another one. this would wipe out private insurance as we know it. broadly speaking. >> i thought democrats were against monopoly. dagen: this will come down -- this comes down to who do you think makes better decisions about your own health, your health insurance or your life and how you spend your money, is it the government that failed in flint, michigan, that has failed the citizens of new york city, or yourself, or you and private business. maria: that's the question you have to ask. i'm going to turn now controversial comments made by congresswoman alexandria ocasio-cortez. the freshman lawmaker taking heat for suggesting cutting military and economic aid to israel should certainly be on the table, she said. joining me right now is retired four star general, fox news senior strategic analyst, general jack keane. always a pleasure to see you. your reaction to this? >> well, first of all, we provide about $4 billion in aid to israel. that's more than we provide to any other country on the planet. but clearly, since israel was founded in 1948, in the middle
7:41 am
east, they are the only democracy in the middle east and certainly our heritage is tied to israel and our values are tied to israel. and simply within their border, they have a terrorist organization, hamas, who wants to destroy the state of israel, not only do they not recognize israel but they want it gone. and threatening encroaching on israel every day are the iranians. that is what syria is all about in terms of their strategic anchor point. so certainly is it appropriate for congress to debate our foreign aid program and argue it out based on the merits? certainly. that should be done. maria: yeah. >> from my perspective, that is money very well spent and i think our viewers, our taxpayers, have assurance that he providing assistance to israel on an annual basis is in the u.s. national. maria: yeah.
7:42 am
and not to mention israel is our biggest ally in the middle east. let me ask you about the border battle, general. president trump is doubling down on that threat to relocate illegal immigrants into sanctuary cities. democrats are speaking out. they're saying it's illegal to do that. >> well, i don't know about the legality of it. not my lane, maria. but i do think that clearly this is a crisis on the border, as we've been talking about for weeks. 4,000 people crashing through the border every single day and we don't have the resources to be able to process them and hold them properly. we don't have the judges to be able to deal with the situation. i understand there's 800,000 waiting to be processed in the system. i think a lot of them will never show up, certainly, for that final processing before a judge. where to send them, i'll leave that up to dhs in terms of logistics involved and the
7:43 am
expense involved in that. but clearly, as everyone who is an expert on this has said, we need a change in legislation to stop the asylum seekers being incentiveized to come to the country. number one. number two, we've got to work with mexico because their drug cartels and their trans national organization, human traffickers, are assisting in the migration of the people from the northern triangle, through the mexican southern border, to the united states southern border. this new administration in mexico has got to clamp down on that and if they need our assistance, let's get in there and give them some assistance in doing that. and also, as best i can understand, despite the fact that a week or so ago we were saying the mexicans are doing better, they still have not employed their federal police to their southern border. maria: okay. >> and i believe that's absolutely outrageous. maria: which is why the president sent troops to the
7:44 am
border. u.s. troops. general, it's always a pleasure to see you. thanks so much. >> good talking to you, maria. maria: a record breaking deal, russell wilson signs a new contract, makes him the highest paid nfl player there is. find out how much he's getting right after this. this is loma linda, a place with one of the highest life expectancies in the country. you see so many people walking around here in their hundreds. so how do you stay financially well for all those extra years? well, you have to start planning as early as possible.

wilson reached a four year, $140 million extension agreement. this makes wilson the highest paid player in the league. this is according to espn. the 30-year-old staying in seattle through 2023. the deal ends speculation the seahawks might trade the quarterback because they wouldn't meet the contract demands. it knocks out aaron rodgers out of the top spot when it comes to pay. the boston marathon ended with a photo finish, sprinting to win the men's title for the first time, running in under 2 hours, 8 minutes, he won by 2 seconds. you can see the picture there. this is amazing, an inspiring finish for micah herndon, he crawled across the finish line after his legs gave out on him. he was in a lot of pain. he was paying tribute to the memories of three men he knew when serving as a marine in afghanistan. he finished the course in 3 hours, 38 minutes before he

when it comes to type 2 diabetes, are you thinking about your heart? well, i'm managing my a1c, so i should be all set. actually, you're still at risk for a fatal heart attack or stroke. that's where jardiance comes in. it reduces the risk of dying from a cardiovascular event for adults who have type 2 diabetes and known heart diseas. that's why the american diabetes association recommends the active ingredient in jardiance. and it lowers a1c? with diet and exercise. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration, genital yeast or urinary tract infections, and sudden kidney problems. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. a rare, but life-threatening, bacterial infection in the skin of the perineum could occur. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of this bacterial infection, ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. so, what do you think? now i feel i can do more to go beyond lowering a1c. ask your doctor about jardiance today.

8:32 am
trillion-dollar coach mentored top nails in technology steve jobs tim book jack dorsey mark zuckerberg cheryl sandberg larry page many others he died in 2016 after long fight with cancer my next guests current former going executives worked with campbell firsthand the trillion-dollar coach leadership playbook of silicon valley bill campbell. >> former google chairmen, google communications director former google sr., vice president alphabet management team advisory thanks for joining us a guy worked at apple ran into it, was a coach, what was special about bell campbell. >> he was the best coach that we have ever seen, he created more value he coached larger organization, what we lender in writing the book was that you need a coach, i thought he
8:33 am
was my coach but he was coaching the whole team a business that has a coach will do much, much better. >> he wanted to be in the background right you write that, you know, all of these people you could tell when his fingerprints are on it when you came out said, i want to interview you for a book that chapter was closed he didn't want the spotlight. >> no, really chose off behind-the-scenes but was so helpful to everybody the word we interviewed so many people the word most often was love people loved bill, bill loved people created community wherever he went. >> we have proud a playbook we think can help managers get most out of other people, in companies all over the place people put up postures that say it is the people they don't live it, bill lived trust respect support, and challenged people to be the best in a collaborative world. >> tell me about that in a practical manner eric what does that mean what are some
8:34 am
of the things that you knew bill campbell caught and really taught and shaped neither tech world. >> hes very very sensitive to people who were coachable self interested as opposed to interested in the firm, so he wouldn't work with you unless he thought he could help you. but if youp weren't going to listen so self-obsessed do your own thing other narcissistic he would not take care of you he focused first on people of the team seasoning products without the team nothing happens. >> that is true you write, in the book a trillion dollars underestimates the value he created, he was side-by-side with steve jobs to build apple from near bankruptcy to market capitalization several hundred billion dollars, side-by-side with larry page, bren, eric to build google to market capitalization several hundred billion dollars bill was greatest executive coach in
8:35 am
the world ever seen, eric us there some of the practical things he taught you how he worked with you, to improve google and build it. >> simply thing whenever we had a question, we would assign it to two people two people would have to work it out often that built trust deep inside the organization, so we and never had to worry about, people would sort things out i didn't have to think about it he would call the board ahead avenue meeting ask what was on their minds sort of telegraph what might be happening was my eyes, ears in terms of people and structure. he did this, by the way, for free. he was never paid he was his compensation was love, and impact that he had, i said why are you not being paid he said i want to give back, it is a great model for sort of the last half of your executive life, you have been super successful people look for you for advice for mentorship but
8:36 am
coaching literally, organizing the team to win, is a new important area. >> how would he deal with some of the issues that we are dealing with today in terms of for example, the power of social media? what do you do at a time that now these companies google included, have become so important, so powerful that now they are sort of targets in many areas, what with does he say about the strength and power of social media, what would he say about it today and how governments are looking to regulate? >> well out of respect for him i am not sure i can speak to what he would say about an issue today i can tell you how he would approach it he would tell us don't jump in and focus on the problem. jump in and focus on the team. he asked if we had right set of people, devoted to dressing the challenges that we have neither socially pays once confident right team would assign the people not expert
8:37 am
in technology he was expert in helping us solve the problems that we were presented with. >> he would also emphasize vehicular manslaughter, he overall message what do you stand for, what do you stand for what do you instant for. >> you are going to make mistakes, if you make a mistake, admit it move on take the beating however it goes but values and people, quality and teamwork, right all the classic things you would imagine in a football coach turn out to apply shockingly, to the tech industry. >> the i love the idea that he was a football coach you are right there are a lot of similarities to being on field in aboardroom. >> is it he wasn't that great football coach winning record was so, so, but when he moved to sales and then into marketing then apple, eventually to all of tech, he was exceptional. >> one of the skills he developed as football coach to be able to see the whole field coached football 12 years really had the ability to most of us will follow the ball he
8:38 am
could see 22 players on the field even before film or video, and applied that same approach, in eric's staff meetings would look at all the players in the room who is getting along who is upset with the conversation, and be able to -- that power of observation. >> again about people. >> yes. >> one thing we concluded is there is not enough coaches we only know of one exceptional one no longer with us one message from the book more than 80 interviews that we did is that managers need to learn how to be coaches as manager you are taught do this do this drive hard very pressure full situations but sometimes you have to step back say i want to coach this team coach this event help people organize, the way you coach is different from telling people. you get somebody to want to be excellent you convince them they are excellent when they fall short you tell them look you can do better. and then their own motivation cases them to work harder.
8:39 am
maria: i like the idea of really looking at the people bringing out as much as you can from people giving people, that leadership, and that composurement people represent ideas at going is there a way you need to harness that strength, but not follow all the decisions of the people because a lot of people question whether or not it itself too much now there have been big decisions, in a management has made at google because the people were upset about whether, pentagon contract or whether a.i., ethical unit, is it too much? >> in the google context one of our values is this kind of internal conversation. where bill would say i'm sorry sticking to values stay very focused what you want as a business the reality is today, these management jobs are harder and harder and harder because of social media and so forth you've got to listen,
8:40 am
even more carefully to your employees. but at the end of the day, the old playbook which is leadership, coaching, getting people who are aven young and relatively experienced huge potential to achieve their greatness whatever it is, that is a universal human value our argument in the book is that these are applicable today in the future these are universal values of management on leadership. >> some point the leadership has to say okay. i hear you, but what do i stand for what do we stand for. >> that is the values. >> in book you go through many lessons bill taught including people billed trust creating a workplace based on love, what does that mean? give me a practical idea based on love. >> you show love show up a manager, coach show up for your people, breathe confidence into them, when time gets up show up.
8:41 am
>> also means cheer. bill would clap like that in board meetings. >> in the middle of the meeting no good reason, maria i love your show, [clapping], feels good. >> in a meeting, by audibly clapping let you you know what a great job you have done. >> fantastic. >> momentum towards the decision. >> gets everybody buying in. >> haven't you said sat in meetings airfare kind of bored okay. let's get going it is the same thing as winning in the game. >> funny how little things make a big difference let me ask you about a.i. google among senior companies out there working on artificial intelligence we have been looking at it here as well. it is everywhere is it just going to get bigger more prevalent. >> a lot ahead getting exercisers to about smarter i think biggest wins in health care i think this is largely under reported. >> you said a long time.
8:42 am
>> i am convinced here is why, as much as we think of ourselves as individuals biologically we are similar to each other computers can watch what happens now the algorithms are so good when you go into a hospital if we know roughly, you give us your permission about information this is the hospital now not google, the hospital can say, hey we think this is the next ailment that is going to happen, that is how good the algorithms are getting the whole year of precision medicine the ability to have medicine directed directly at you directly revolted to algorithms, diagnostic the computer the make a recommendation more accurate than doctor's ice. >> a lot of babe debate in a lot of debate in terms of employment some jobs will go away are you on larry page
8:43 am
they are theory of things orelonlon where this could be destructive can you execute artificial intelligence in an ethical way not to harm too many people. >> absolutely in ethical way whole industry is focused on that i am convinced there is he going to be a huge job shortage by that i mean, not enough people to fill the jobs that are open because of this. and the reason is, that the a.i. systems will make things so much more efficient such economic growth we literally are going to need more people more education, to fill these jobs, there is no question that destructivisruptive. >> somebody said when we learned nuclear technology we did not give never been nuke nuclear bombs this is not nuclear this is capable of making everything we do more efficient, clearer, better
8:44 am
grimz more productive in the same way the personal cpr did this is taken over our we'll industry in terms of machine learning, better business algorithms if you are running a business not using a.i. machine learning you are competitor can beat you -- >> i agree with that that is where we are seeing it in every single industry fascinating about data right data, inserted into the computer making the computer smarter. >> today, the systems are completely dependent upon large sources of data so companies that have most data whether in maps business or what have you typically are winning. in the future we think actually possible for krrz to generate their own training data so there is a huge new field coming out, will make that even more efficiently. >> bill campbell would say? >> that's terrific as you cheer] clapping]. >> thank you for wonderful life lessons. >> great to see you eric, allen jonathan, joining us there, coming up bernie's big
