2:00 pm
urban outfitters up almost 4% as well. some green arrows in an overall red market today, ty. >> very interesting. i'm going to say something crazy here, i am going to be watching the vote in the house of representatives and the senate on this budget deal very, very closely. to me it ain't no sure thing. that's all for "power lunch." >> "street signs" begins now. ♪ ♪ drop it like it's hot ♪ drop it like it's hot >> that's what we call the quiet open and apparently stocks can go down after this year's run, we almost forget that it could happen. but is it about to happen in a big way next year? hi, everybody. your other hot topics, why your house is likely to be worth even more next year. the best stocks to buy right now at three different price points. we're going to be naming names and why a little bean is beating
2:01 pm
the all mighty gold and helping me destroy herb greenberg's dreams and aspirations in the process. >> in case you were under the false impression that the stock market has become a one-way street we are seeing losses today. today's s&p drop is the biggest since november 7th bringing it under the 1800 mark as you can see. the nasdaq is seeing its biggest drop since november 18th, down by about 33 points if i will see you and trump you with another stat. the last time the dow had a more than 1% drop? >> october 8th. >> she looks at the scripps. yes, it's october 8th. more than two months ago since we had a 1% down day. we know this, overall stocks have been quiet but have they been too quiet. many are starting to get nervous and monday on our web show talking numbers mcneil curry the technical strategist of bank of america and merrill lynch is looking for a correction of up to 20% early next year. joining us now to talk about
2:02 pm
that, barry glassman, got herb greenberg also with us, barry, overall, do you think we could have a 10 or 20% drop to kick off next year? >> i don't know whether it's to kick off next year or some time next year. anything that goes up 45% in two years or 24 months or so, can easily see a correction of 10%. the question is why. and for me, it has to do with the actual fundamentals of the market. we are seeing this year a stock market up 30% or shy of 30% and earnings are up 5% or so, revenues up 4%. all that's happened this year is that the stock market has gotten more expensive. >> but why only 10%. why wouldn't you go for the full 20 like curry did? >> well, i think that what we have right now is a by fur cated market and the statistics i sent along earlier today show that the lower quality companies, the up withes that s&p actually ranks at c or so, those
2:03 pm
companies are up about 57% year to date. >> you're talking momentum names, the netflixs, the teslas. >> the jc penneys and biteny be pitney bowes of the world. >> the fact of the matter year to date you have great companies like exxon mobil that are only up in the -- exxon mobil just surpassed double digits but you have ibm that's negative, at&t that's just up, the stayed low -- i'm sorry, the stayed stable companies, are up just about 20% year to date. the high flyers, those are the ones that have moved the market. why don't i think the market can correct more than 20%? i think that the stable companies are likely to hold up a bit more than the high flyers. >> you're going to be shorting names in a second, i want to get to that. but herb to you and our excellent producer put this together, if you look at what's called quality rankings for stocks, with an a-plus quality
2:04 pm
ranking, have actually performed the worst out of any of the quality rankings and the group that's rated c, right, mid-to low quality stocks is up 57% this kind of stuff makes you nervous. >> it creates a level of complacency. it's become almost toos yees to make money. people want to get in, they joke about if i'm red flagging something that that's the time to basically buy something because you know it's going to go straight up. that's nonsense and usually to me, and i've said on the air before, it's a sign of an inflection point. we're at that inflection point. is it going to be next week, is it going to be -- you feel it. you've seen it, been around. anyone can have their -- they can have their technicals that will tell you whether it will or will not do it. i think we know that -- again, i think the complacency can be blindsiding. >> which stocks in particular would you be advocating to short at this level? >> see, not necessarily the
2:05 pm
specific stocks. what we're adding in our portfolios is a strategy, what we call a long short strategy. and the one or two different investments or funds we're putting in client portfolios, what they're doing is going long or betting that solid companies with earnings momentum, strong leadership and so forth, they're betting they go higher. >> are you actively shorting some of these low quality names now. >> we have strategies that do. we like a mutual fund called rebeco boston partners long short equity. what they're doing the average p/e of the longs, for example, is under the market. they're less expensive than the market. the p/es that they're shorting are somewhere in the range of 30 or so. almost double what the market is. so that kind of strategy we're having through just about all of our client portfolios going into the new year. >> thank you very much for great advice there.
2:06 pm
barry, herb, bottom line it. >> i should write about the new short selling mutual fund registered with the sec, one out there, the first new short selling fund. timing wise, something like that come in at a time likes this. >> for our radio listeners, give them the tickers on these funds barry recommended that go short, bprix, dhlsx i will tweet that out so you have it. not a lot of short selling mutual funds. >> here's my pink highlighter so you don't forget it, herb. one of the pilars that could make or break the economy next year is housing. what's this market going to look like? let's look into our crystal ball. something better than that. chief economist human crystal ball and rbc capital home building analyst. great to have you with us here. >> great to be here. >> 2014, what does it look like? >> the first thing consumers will look like it's going to be more expensive to buy a home. the good news is the process
2:07 pm
won't be as frenzied. 2013, bidding wars going over asking having to move fast. 2014, will see more inventory on the market and we'll see less investor interest which means people looking to buy a home for themselves will be competing with fewer investors. >> it sounds like putting lipstick on a pig, trying to find the silver linings. >> it's better than lipstick on a pigp president big question and red flag is what happens with construction and what happens with jobs for young people. construction is still way below normal levels and one big reason for that is, young people haven't started moving out of their parents' homes and added to household formation which is a key number that builders look at. right now construction is still closer to where it was at the worst of the recession than normal levels and so the big question from next year is what happens in construction. that's the way that housing gives back to the economy. >> and that's, bob, your wheelhouse. you must be doing a victory lap because you've been bullish on
2:08 pm
home builders and right for a long time now. things looked a little soft over the summer. you stuck by the names. we had that gigantic blowout number a couple weeks ago for new home sales. do your victory lap, buddy. >> well, we put it this way, thinking about '14 how to position your portfolio. a lot of the enthusiasm we felt going into the year is tempered by concern about tapering, higher interest rates, and to your point, limited household formation, dislocation in the job market. so next year for housing starts probably going to grow 10 to 15% maybe to a million. that's probably at the lower end of estimates. >> am i hearing you right, bob? you've been optimistic for a couple years. are you on this fine program saying i'm not that optimistic on these names anymore? >> that's correct. >> wow. >> and i think -- >> what prompted the switch? >> you're going to get good earnings growth next year. we still like if you have a three year horizon, he nar,
2:09 pm
pulte, kb homes, but in spite of the earnings growth you have to contend with tapering you could see multiples contracting and that's a prominent head wind. >> is there anything you actively say sell right now? >> well instead of actively saying sell we would actively be buying fortune brands, massco, mohawk, norcraft. >> the suppliers, not the builders. >> we want to be in the suppliers, repair and remodel will grow 7 to 10% next year. we think that's great visibility on earnings. double digit upside. if you're going to get 2% plus gdp growth you probably got limited downside. we have a very attractive set of opportunities. >> market down here. sort of the ubber bullish turning a little more cautious here on "street signs." >> we're cautious on the builders. there are head winds that will lead to a protracted recovery. that's our concern. just need to flag it. >> which is ironic considering you've brought a stat today that suggests that idea of the american dream having your own home, seems to be back after quite a long time where that was
2:10 pm
severely shaken. >> do you think it's here to say? >> our latest survey 74% said that's part of their american dream and that's the highest level in almost four years. among young people 18 to 34, 93% of renters say they want to buy some day. doesn't mean they're going to do it right away. huge barriers for young people for opening. >> next year still the year of the urban renter. >> we'll see more urban rental activity as young people move out of their parents' homes into rental. not going to move into a new home they own but urban rentals. >> good-bye living in your mom's basement and a little independence. thank you bob and jed as well. >> thank you both. >> thank you all. thank you for sitting there. >> thank you, brian. >> thank you. i want to thank katie as well, because i gave the wrong shout out about the producer that produced the awesome, katie, jenny, jackie, andrea, kevin, albert, all the "street signs" team. still ahead, dollar bills, the

2:21 pm
welcome back to "street signs." i'm sl sharon epperson with today's pump parole. despite the latest decline in demand last week, prices at the pump haven't really budged. nationally on average the price is steady at $3.26 a gallon. due in part to the surge in the price of ethanol which makes up about 10% of the regular gasoline blend. but with the snow and ice sidelining drivers and curtailing demand prices are likely to come down. we're already seeing six states where the price is below $3 a gallon from utah to missouri and
2:22 pm
including oklahoma where you'll find the cheapest gas in the country today right in the middle of that state in dell city, oklahoma, at $2.67 a gallon. not too bad. back to you. >> not too bad and not too far away from the hub of all gas, curbing, oklahoma. surprising how that works. three months ago herb and i made a friendly bet that had to do with gold miners and coffee, more than three months, back in july i think and i said the coffee etf, actually etn, the cafe would outperform the gdx gold miner index. herb disagreed and boom, a bet was born. well, this past month, i've been owning you, herb. coffee is actually up a couple percent, gold miners have been beaten like an old rented donkey. i will say this so far since we began the bet, we both stink. >> well you know -- you're down but down a little less than me. >> i'm down. never thought anything could go lower than the gdx when i bought
2:23 pm
it. i thought it was as low as i could go. what you have in that, take a look at american barics, nice component in there, if you have something happen even in one of the gold miners that surprises people on the upside, what could do, who knows, that would have a nice. >> pop and bring it back. >> you need central banks to start buying gold again my friend. back in 2010 the world bank report suggested central banks may further monetize gold. that created a push. that push is gone. >> i need a market that collapses and inflation at the same time and people will be afraid and rush to the safety of anything related to the gold although you know -- >> rooting for a market crash and inflation at the same time. good for you, herb. >> talking about -- >> market crash and inflation at the same time. >> or what you could have, interest rates start rising -- >> i need a pony that's a leprechaun drinking a rainbow. >> if that were the case gold bars would probably be a better bet than gold miners.
2:24 pm
>> mandy you're one of these fancy coffee people, right, you go to those coffee places -- >> i go get coffee in the cafeteria. >> you drink low brow coffee actually. coffee prices have collapsed to decade lows. wholesale coffee prices have tanked which is the than i went long coffee. i'm not long really, i mean it's a fake amolong in a bet with yo. no coffee shop cutting their prices. this is pure profit. >> duncan not cutting their prices. >> never roll the prices back. >> smiling all the way to the bank. >> when rolling up in your '78 ltg to the local in san diego tell them you want a discount because you know they're paying less per bag. >> my dad had one of those a blue ltd. >> they had that. >> back in australia. >> like a holding or voxle? >> i don't know. >> whatever it is. >> seven months to go, gold miners will pull it out. we both stink.
2:25 pm
>> they're both so hated. i think gold miners have a better shot because coffee is -- >> gosh, i forget by the way we have the fierce competitor segment later in the show. watch out. janet rogers negativen was threatening physical violence in an e-mail about your comments slamming macy's and how they were dirty. sent me an e-mail and he's going to punch you out. >> he should come to the macy's in san diego at university town center take a look at the floors of that. >> he said threatening physical violence against you. >> i'm letting you know that macy's has to do something with the stores. why do they have escalators that feel like they're in the 1950s. >> part of the historical charm, herb. the building is historic. they keep the wooden escalators -- i know in san diego nothing is older than six months. i grew up there. but there is history on the east coast, herb, embrace it. embrace your inner history. >> embrace the dirt. still ahead -- >> you rode the first escalators, right? >> wow, what is this?

2:30 pm
21% higher than now. firm thinks organic growth, capital allocation and margins may surprise to the upside which would accelerate epf growth above consensus. >> urban outfitters announcing improved store sales. >> stock up to 37 bucks, basically same-store sales up mid single digit percentage. they posted a decline and warned about discounting. had this was a $45 stock in summer hard to cheer but still today up a little bit. >> somewhat under the radar and under water today, avanir pharmaceutical tanking. >> when a stock is down 24% to $3.25 it gets on your radar real quick. bad phase clinical 2 data, an ms drug that did not meet the points. downgrading, cutting their price target to 5 which is still $1.75 more than the stock is now. take that for what it's worth. one drug and not doing well this is what happens.
2:31 pm
>> we don't want to end on a note like that. an upgrade at wells fargo for rad wear, a tech company. >> i went -- i've heard of the company many times. went on their website, still don't understand what they do, the cloud, computer software, whatever it is. stock up 2.7%, $17 and change up to an outperform from market perform. target price ranged raised 20 to 22. 17 buckses there. they talked to management and liked what management had to say. funny how that works. >> yeah. >> radware. >> mastercard its shares having a nice day, up about 4% after the company announced a 10 for 1 stock split and 83% increase in their dividend and $3.5 billion buyback program but that's not the only credit card company worth taking a look at. competitors like visa and american express, both seeing a nice run this year as well. outperforming the broader market by 10% or more. so, which of these names, visa,
2:32 pm
or amex should you buy? start you got it talking numbers. jonathan of apm partners on the charts, fundamental jason of lidel advisors. start with the charts, what's the best looking of the two charts, jonathan? >> well, brian, it's really a case of want to lock between visa and mastercard visa has gone too far too fast. back to the ipo, visa up about 360% from the ipo price or 270% from the first day of trading, meanwhile over the last five years, american express up about 100%. but the outperformance is what concerns us over the last two years. since the middle of 2011, visa's outperformed american express and really the rate of assent that's concerning. the chart of the two we can see the steepness of that trend of visa. visa hasn't touched its 00 day moving average in over two years. market perspective the risk is to the downside in visa whereas
2:33 pm
american express a much more well sustainable trend so we like american express here over visa. >> we do things differently today. normally we start with the fundamentals and then move on to the charts and technicals. mixing it up a little bit. >> going crazy. >> breaking out. >> not even freaky friday. jason fundamentally is american express better than visa as the technicals were tug sugging? >> absolutely not. i'm on the opposite side. i mean if someone says visa is going too far too fast that's what they were saying about apple when apple crossed $200. visa reminds me of apple in its hayday. zero long-term debt, three times the operating margins as american express. when i think of american express i think of the hair club for men commercial, the guy says not only am i the president i'm a client. they not only issue credit cards but must be using their own a lot. so much debt and visa has zero.
2:34 pm
i think overall visa has, you know, outpaced american express but it's for a reason. i think visa is -- >> jason -- >> jonathan a chance to respond. not criticizing the fundamentals, from a chart perspective, american express looks like a better deal. >> yeah. if i'm looking at all those reasons you mentioned i would say that's why visa has been up so much more than american express over the past two years. talking about the trade going forward selling what's priced into a pretty rich stock in visa. >> i like to look at the price to earnings growth ratio. that is my number one favorite ratio to look at the. the peg ratio. even with visa's run up visa is still more attractive from a peg ratio stand point so therefore i like visa a thousand times more than american express. >> how do you really feel? okay. so jason loves visa. jonathan -- >> no long-term debt. >> debt is not always a bad thing.

2:43 pm
michael kors, i think they're slowing, i agree with everything we heard here about all the good things about michael kors. i don't think that changes the fact that their growth rate is slowing a little and when that happens, they'll contract on their multiple and coach down in the dumps and trading like a plain old retailer will start to see its business get wet better. >> the wisconsin stock. >> the new management will work and we'll start to see growth again because the product is getting better an some time in 2014 they'll start delivering new product and yeah, they're not as cool as they used to be but then again they're trading like they're not cool either. >> courtney a lady that studies fashion and handbags for a living. >> i was sort of undecided coming into this and i wanted to hear everybody's opinion. this morning i thought coach, then definitely kors. i'm worried about kors cool factor. that could fade quickly. something to be said about coach, been around for a long time. i love their men's products. >> he have men's products. >> not so labeled with the cs.

2:45 pm
well doesn't mean it's necessarily bound for a fall. i think the fact that kors limited their merchandise that's logo centric to 30% has worked. and how does coach come back from being such an outlet brand. >> sure. what about the cool kids are saying, we talked about the come factor a little bit. a lot of surveys seems the kids like kors. >> i think the cool kids were unemployed living in their mother's basements and do have money to spend. why do we care? >> the teens. >> more twitter followers. >> i do think there's that mixing and matching of accessories, people are shopping at h and m and so on but will pay for the $150 handbag and $200 handbag. >> they will some. >> they will. they will. and so your point about outlet stores, you go to an outlet store there is a line outside the coach store. they actually have to stagger people in. >> don't they sell different stuff? the stuff in most of these outlet stuff is never available in the store.
