2:00 pm
above the two-year 7% mark at various times, not only in the week but during particular trading days. like now the ten-year is at 2.61%. lots of earnings next week in the media sector, disney, time warner, 20th century fox, dish media. rest up, ty, going to be a busy week. >> that does it for this edition of "power lunch." see you when you get back here. >> "street signs" begins now: >> another trading week nearly in the books, another week where stocks move higher. retail investors piling in. housing and car sales are hot, and there's even talk of mansion shortages. this is dangerously looking like 2006 all over again. a huge week for social media. facebook and linkedin soaring and buzzfeed's ceo on why and what may be next and why all the 20-somethings at your office may be costing your company and the
2:01 pm
economy big time and the hottest smartphone company in the world right now might just be a name that you certainly would not expect. and just now george clooney, that handsome fellow right there, slamming a very well-known hedge fund manager in the form of dan loeb. hear what george clooney had to say. bring you the headlines, just an excuse to show george clooney for all the ladies out there. hi, everybody, mandy is back on monday. the dow jones industrial average on this jobs friday not doing a big move here. look at that. we're down 13 points. the nasdaq is up. the nasdaq has become the story, folks. it is up nearly 2% this week alone. it is now up 22% this year, incredible run for tech. let's get right now to the trading floor. bob and rick. bob, today not a big move for the dow, but once again it's a week where we're shrugging off anything and everything and we're moving higher. what's going on? >> yeah, they are ready to guild the lily, disappointing report.
2:02 pm
whisper comments on the floor, all around, 200, 225, 162, a disappointment, but, look, all you can say is watch the action and conclude that any dip continues to be met with -- with buy the dip mentality. sorry to use cliches. the volume isn't heavy, a light friday but take a look at vix. you think traders are worried. nobody is buying protection. the vix is collapsing, lowest level since march or so and that was a six-year low. buy the dip, still very much intact. >> ipos, they are red hot again. going back to 2006. >> one by-product of the hot stock market, nobody does an ipo in august. next month six. three the entire year of august at the nyse. look what happened. you're right. i think it's 2007, brian, put up the ipos in august.
2:03 pm
we're expecting 16 ipos in august. seven last year and four before, the last time i saw 16 ipos in august was 2007 and we may even get more than that. the big thing here, my thought, brian, about why we're getting the stock market, the new high is driving the ipo market. that's the single most important thing, and we've got some big growth sectors, cloud xugt and nat gas and biodeck diesel. and finally you mentioned this last week, the facebook ipo, back at $36. a number of people i talked to said, you know what, getting back to 38. that kind of matters. really put a crimp in the ipo market so let's throw that in the mix as a possibility. >> tell you what, rick santelli, you kind of heard my sarcastic take at the short, mansion shortages, million dollar cars, housing is hot and ipos hot. i'm starting to feel a little
2:04 pm
nervous. >> yeah, people don't think quantitative easing is making a difference but yes, it is. >> where do we go? it's not what we've done but where we're going >> you know the answer. the answer, the country, the entrepreneurs, the underpinnings of what makes this country great, how it's changed history in 237 years, everybody knows what to do. we just need to let the forces do their thing. all this tweaking i think is throwing everything out of whack. it's all out of faze. i wish we had a shortage of every product in this country and just because somebody is successful like carl icahn buying mansions i don't think that's a negative story at all. but i understand the country can't be great without a great middle class and that is the story. it's a story the president talks about, so the difference is how do we get it, and that's the philosophical divide that has been plaguing congress for years. >> we have got a segment coming up in about 20 minutes that is
2:05 pm
going to explode your brain. i'm going to ask you a question before i let you go. do you think a job is a right or a privilege, a good paying job? >> i think it's a choice, because -- listen, brian, when i went to college, we had encyclopedias, when you wanted to go study up, you had to go to the library and take out a lot of books. when i look at what the world and the knowledge and the wealth of information two buttons away from a computer that costs less than a pair of gym shoes or telephone i don't think there should be any excuses, and if people have handicaps or they can't learn and can't get the skills, those people need help. >> yeah. >> the problem is there's a boat load of people that don't fall in that category that are getting help that i think is pressuring a lot of the politics that drive the country. >> well, i think a job is a privilege, not a right, but you're not going to believe a new study on the millennial generation, what they think. >> tune in, rick.
2:06 pm
>> brian, do you think anybody could ever set you back, if you were canned tomorrow and you couldn't find a job, you would change your skill set. if you had to work three jobs, would you not? >> that's right. >> i busted my butt every single day because my parents are no, but, hey, my daughter is sleeping in nice hotels. where's the cycle? rick, it's a different topic, different day. have a good weekend, buddy. >> watch the segment. >> you, too. >> despite guys like trying to find crazy explanations stocks go up for one reason, folks, more buyers than sellers and there's been a lot more buyers and sellers lately. bank of america data showing etfs topped 6.6 billion last week compared to 1.6 billion in outflows from bonds. bob, you kind of heard our talk, you know, rant, whatever you want to call at the top, everybody loves stocks and housing is hospital starting to get nervous that things are
2:07 pm
almost too euphoric. what's your take? >> i'm not sure euphoric yet, brian. we've traded past the upper end of the range we established before, but there's still a lot of doubt out there, a lot of naysayers, i think the market will continue to climb the wall of worry and the fact that stocks are cheaper than a lot of other things and a lot of other things have ceased to be attractive. cash seized to be attractive some time ago and now bonds are struggling and stocks have been the game in town. there's more money coming in as you pointed out. >> is the stock market then, bob, fundamentally attractive based on earnings, valuations or price-to-book sales or is it simply the best of any other option? >> it's certainly some of both, but i think it's a both and and not a both or and that is to say stocks have a yield higher than a ten-year treasury. that's almost unheard of. mostly it's a handful of stocks and that alone tells you relative to something else
2:08 pm
stocks are pretty interesting. dividends are going up at a double digit rate. last time i checked the earnings reports are great, nothing to write home about but they are making a positive move in the right direction. you put that all together and i think the market grind higher. look, we're not going to go up another 18% as we have since the first year in my opinion but i think the market ends higher than where it is today. >> brian hamilton, your firm does data mining better than any firm in the world and you're generally an optimistic guy but you're starting to get a little nervous too. tell us why. >> here's why. we are 48 months into an expansion, no doubt about it. rick is totally right, but, remember, the average time that happens is about 55 to 58 months. we're going on the back side of that, and our unemployment rate is still too high. >> okay. so just because though we're 48 months in and the average is 58 months, that doesn't necessarily mean, brian, that we have to contract. that's the average. you could skew the mean and
2:09 pm
security average no matter what. what are the odds that we go up or down? >> it's hard to say. look, we look at data over the past 80 years. we're four into this very strong expansion, been talking about it for the last four years and unemployment is still too high. there's still too much people on the fence in terms of hiring so we can never predict how long it's going to continue going, and when a recession might kick in, but we're getting on the back end on the 17th or 18th green basically. >> josh brown, on the show a lot, he had a really interesting blog post and opinion the theme on our show for two years, that despite all these things going on, china fears, european worries still high, jobs still under historical growth, gdp, we have powered through it. is it because of the resiliency of the american consumer, or is it really because we've fundamentally misestimated and maybe misestimated the positive impact of a housing recovery?
2:10 pm
>> some or all of the above as usual and i might add a couple other more things to it. listen, nothing like my house price going down that causes me to worry and nothing like my house price going up to make me spend a couple more bucks, and i think that's certainly been part of the driver. it was part of the fed's objective in all they have done to create some more confidence, and we've gotten some on the consumer side and we need to convert that to business confidence so we get more capital expenditures. i think with a lot of excess capacity, as brian has point out in labor, but also lots of other places we have further to go in this business cycle. >> very quickly, brian, if you had to guess 12 months from today would the unemployment rate be higher or lower? >> i think it will be lower, but, remember, a year ago i was saying it would be about 6% right now, so that shows you my predictive ability. >> i told people you were an optimistic fellow. >> that's true, but, look, here's what's happening. we are growing -- private
2:11 pm
companies are growing 10% a year. it's unbelievable. average net margins about 6% to 7%, very high. good cash flow, why are they on that fence, and as we keep going down that line i still get worried about that unemployment rate because if we're at 7% or 6.5% when things are good, what happens when we turn bad? remember, we are a cyclical economy and always have been so we can't plan on continued growth forever basically. >> brian hamilton and bob nevall, take care. have a great weekend, guys. >> thanks. >> a developing story that we're keeping an eye here at cnbc on is this. u.s. officials have issued a travel warning to all americans abroad after an unspecified threat from al qaeda. a number of u.s. embassies in the middle east will be closed this weekend. these are posts that are normally open on sundays. state department issued a statement saying that terror attacks could take place between now and the end of the month. a travel warning is in place until august 31st.

another deadline approaching in the dispute between cbs and time warner cable. the two are in negotiations over programming fees with you have been unable to come to an agreement. the deadline now has been extended several times and another looming at 5:00 eastern time tonight. that's less than three hours from now, folks. time warner cable briefly pulled cbs stations from cable systems earlier this week but then restored them as the two sides agrooet greed to keep on talking. time warner cable shares, by the way, are down on speculation that it will be left on the sidelines amid rumors of industry consolidation. well, from so-called old media, which is doing pretty well, by the way, to social media, linkedin crushing it. julia boorstin spoke to the ceo earlier today. julia? >> reporter: well, brian, linkedin results blew past expectations and shares soaring 11% today on 138% growth and earnings per share and
2:16 pm
accelerating user base growth. the stock is up 425% since linkedin's may 2011 ipo and now the ceo says the next phase of the company's growth hinges on mastering global. >> i think for a number of websites that the challenge has been navigating the transition from desktop to mobile in terms of advertising. for us stgz one of only three diversified business lines we're in. we ear in talent solutions an premium subscriptions and by virtue of mobile we increase the upickity with which people can generate value. >> weiner praised ceo mark zuckerberg of facebook of doing a good job of navigating their transition from desktop to mobile and explains why linkedin is taking a similar approach with sponsored contonight. >> sponsored content and updates, as you mentioned for facebook, sponsored stories, it's working, and we're seeing
2:17 pm
higher levels of engagement via mobile-sponsored updates via traditional mobile display. >> and that higher engage president, especially on mobile devices, is what they are translating to higher revenues. find out more from my interview on cnbc.com. brian? >> we now want to bring in buzzfeed president john steinberg. your company is rhett who had and facebook red hot and linkedin and yelp hotter than all together. are you getting worried about the exuberance? >> i don't think it's exuberance. this is the stuff we talked about every time i come on and cramer has been the only one that agreed. they have made the transition to mobile and did it despite the doubters, 40% of the revenue coming from mobile and linkedin, 30% accessing them on mobile devices. companies with increasing engagement and increasing mobile monetization and the ad products just like we have of sponsored content in the feed that works orders of magnitude better that
2:18 pm
be display. it's a pogging as part of a big transition going on in media right now. >> where do you see the transition ultimately ending up, john? when i look at the platt forms, i can see the advantages of all and buzzfeed but what i can't see is everybody existing in their current form in a couple of years. >> i think it will be massively disru disruptive. when you looked at the article about the aging of the television audience, young people are not watching television like they used to or subscribing to newspapers. people will be getting their news, especially young people, 18 to 34, from online, a whole new crop of media companies arising and a crop of linkedin going into conference right now. on the conference call people talked about how the program they have on linkedin and how that's one of the big drivers known gagement in more page news. julia boorstin started it out in her program as well and now you can get it on linkedin instead
2:19 pm
of cnbc. >> in addition to cnbc, john, but i do think you make a good point. there's a shift to mobile. everyone walks around all the time with the mobile devices and what that shift to mobile is doing is changing the way advertising works. instead of display ads being the way that people get advertising online, advertisers are realizing in order to get their message across on these smaller devices they have to make their ads more like content. that's what buzzfeed does and what linkedin is doing and twitter and facebook and the sea change to more content-like advertising will effectively have ads being more targeted, more useful and less annoying, and i think that this world of, you know, cost per clicks for banner ads is really, really changing and that's thanks to this mobile transition. >> julia, i was looking 59 click through rates the other day, right, on some of the mobile ads, 0.3% and the highest was telecon. >> that's for mobile banners. look for mobile content, 1%, 2%,
2:20 pm
3% click-through rates. that's what we see on buzzfeed, moves minds in a rhetorical role. banners never worked. they were a bad product for 20 years. finally mobile is happening, finally the great companies are going into much better ad products and it's working, back to where we should have about in the first place. >> john steinberg, great discussion as always, buddy. thank you very much >> thanks, brian. >> julia boorstin, we'll see you soon. >> thanks. >> up next, george clooney says hedge fund hot shot dan loeb knows nothing about business and slamming hedge funds and we'll have the latest and an interesting segue, taco bell says get ready for the dorito loco taco but the flavor is a mystery. what should it be? if you had to pick a flavor for a taco, right, what would it be? let us know. ♪ [ male announcer ] you wait all year for summer. ♪ this summer was definitely worth the wait.

and welcome to the season finley ail of "the earnings squad." i'm melissa lee joined by my earnings squad partner herb greenberg laughing and smiling with joy and cnbc's josh lipton. got to get to the scorecard. 78% of s&p 500 companies have reported so far and 68% beat estimates and 9% met estimates and 28% coming in below estimates and we're looking ahead to hear to some of the names coming out next with reports, michael kors being one, reporting, before the bell on tuesday and expectations are very high. they have reported 28 straight quarters of positive comps and 12 straight quarters of 35 plus percent comps and there's some expectation that they will be consensus and saying based on channel checks they are saying that the consensus estimates right now look to be a little conservative. what we're looking for is any evidence of continued share gains versus coach which has been lacking, the price performance of michael kors so far this year and any sort of commentary on back to school season since we'll be seeing
2:25 pm
that and a lot of analysts with leather handbags and mobile accessories and watches, typically back-to-school items, want to see how those are selling through but a little nugget brought up by jpmorgan and that is could kors be included in the s&p 500 because it's now eligible to be included. it's been i'm yoed for a certain amount of time and that could mean about shares that could offset the shares offset by sportswear holdings and michael kors himself if that's been an overhang on the stock as of late. >> when they reported in may they said they expected the quarter to look okay. no room for error on this one. >> no. >> so 35 pedestrian run so far this year. not bad in accessories. tyson foods meantime reporting before the bell on monday, so, josh, you've been looking at this for us. >> tyson food, think chicken, pork, beef. got a food theme, herb, with my earnings squad today. >> like it.
2:26 pm
>> tyson food writes before the bell stock up 45% this year. a huge move. when you talk to analyst on the street, those more bulled up central is china, and the argument is with the meat scandals there, the food scares, tyson will argue it's poised to benefit because it has its own controlled secure chicken farm so it will benefit as china tries to recontrol its food system. >> when you look at sales growth it's still so tepid. sales earnings growth, last quarter not so great but does not matter. >> 47% year to date. >> we've seen that over and over in this market. >> that chart can be duplicated for how many stocks. >> for a lot of stocks and we'll listening for any commentary on the merger that the ceo said would benefit tyson and herb

the day goes on is this. is obama care leading to a surge in part-time workers? now many people out there saying yes. steve liesman says probably not. he's here. why say no? >> it may yet but not seeing it in the data, brian. first of all, the growth rate of full-time workers is faster than the growth rate of part-time workers, and i want to show you some data we put together here. this is the share of part-time workers in percent of the total workforce. look at the graphic and here's what you see. the butk of the increase in percentage where parth tim workers were more was in 2008. since then ups and downs but since then the trend in the peak is downward so ultimately that share is declining, a slight increase but the administration contends that some of that is a result of the defense workers being furloughed because of the sequester. that may be true. that may not be true. you can't explain it all through the health care act and take a look at this piece of data from
2:40 pm
the empire state survey of the new york fed. what it shows is there has been some effect. 35% say because of the health care act i'm making no change but one out of four have done more outsource, 5.4% shifted from full-time to part-time and 6.5% have fired or refrained from hiring workers because of it so there is an impact out there. this study was done before the administration lengthened out the time for compliance and for enacting the employer part of this thing. bottom line i think there's been an impact, but it's been very small, not nearly as dramatic as some of the more hysterical commentary has been made it out to be. >> whenever say obama care there tends to be heated conversation and we'll wait to see if it happens in the data. >> it's not there now. had a huge surge in part-time workers this year. last year you had it the other way around. overall the growth rate of full-time is outstripping the growth rate in part-time and that's an important change. >> steve, stick around, there's a fascinating story sure to tick
2:41 pm
off all the kids out there that could be employing america's millennials, those born between 1983 and 1993 would be a drag on the economy. cnbc today says this. it costs companies between $15,000 and $25,000 overtime a millennial changes jobs, and those that can get jobs are changing jobs, a lot. the kids have no qualms about not only changing jobs but going to a direct competitor. joining us now, one of the authors of the survey, the founder of millennial branding, a generation research and consulting firm, if that's even a word. >> happy to be here. >> i don't know. i'm stuck in the middle, right. my dad lost his job when i was 14, you know, and he struggled -- he was so incensed about the job-hopping nature of the millennials but i'm sort of in the middle. what's the survey say? >> the survey says 45% of
2:42 pm
companies are experiencing high turnover for millennials and compared to the previous research we've done millennials leave in two years whereas bloomers leave in ten years, so it's completely different the way they look at it, and what we've found was millennials are looking for a strong corporate culture and that's what hr professionals are seeing is they need to build a strong culture to connect with millennials. >> how about like working, getting paid? a job is a privilege, not a right, support your family and support the economy. is there any of that in there or is it like i want all these training programs and to support a cause? >> well, if you look at the unemployment rate, it's more than twice at much for millennials. >> which means they should be twice as happy to have a job. >> hang on, brian. >> what brian is getting at and

what andrea, the producer of the show was trying to say, she thinks they are spoiled brats, is that what your survey is finding. are these spoiled brats here? >> absolutely no. they choose meaningful work. >> that's why i say. >> flexibility over a higher salary. it's not as important compared to older generations, and so we work with beyond.com and we found that this is really going to be a huge issue for a company because not only does it cost between 15,000 and 25,000 to replace each millennial, but in the next -- next year 36% of the u.s. workplace will be millennials. >> if it costs $15,000 to $25,000 in total costs to a company for somebody to change jobs, right, i mean, there's got to be some loyalty there, do they not realize that because that hurts other people at the company. when a company has to spend money on somebody who comes in for eight months and leaves, that's a raise somebody is probably not getting. they had a job that's probably not going to be hired up.

its entertainment business. clooney claims the hedge fund manager doesn't understand. some of its recent flops but the oscar-winning actor and producer counters the business ebbs and flows and flops are as much part of the hit. if you look at those guys, there is no conscience at work. it is a business that is only about creating wealth where when they failed they get bailed out and nobody gets fired. clooney claims a hedge fund guy is not. he's taking a direct shop at loeb. he says i would call him a carpet bagger and one who is trying to spread a carpet of fear. clooney is especially critical of the hedge fund's impact on jobs or lack through of knowing that a move will employ 300

technical, very geeky. they've actually kind of cut through that and taken the apple model of saying, you know what, we're not going to make a phone for a small group of people so it's comfortable, fits in your hand. >> i thought the move was toward gigantic phones. this is maybe wider than an iphone. >> it actually has a screen that's way bigger than an iphone and what they've figured out what to do is a new process that gets writ of the bezel around it so you're kind of holding a screen in your hand. you can also customize it any color you want, you can order it online. accent colors, wood phones, and they're spending half a billion dollars in marketing. >> there was a big story where they've surpassed apple in terms of downloads but apple is higher because i assume they can command more money for their
