tv Squawk on the Street CNBC April 7, 2014 9:00am-12:01pm EDT
are having a wholetice production discussion of the future of xp. >> thank you. come back. great to have you here. our privilege. make sure you join us here tomorrow. squalk on the street begins right now. ♪ >> welcome in. along with jame crim cramer. full week of q 2. after that rough session on friday. ten year stuck around 272.
lower open the nasdaq looking as if it was opening. >> all getting upgrades merger monday, among them $5.2 billion farm deal and talk about drama hbo go crashes during "game of throwns" and thea who may be pursuing regional programming. >> the biggest loser was the nasdaq. 2.6% drop. led by all of those names before the bell on friday, cr are amer warned you the selling was not over. that is a dichotomy that people
at home need to worry about. the insiders need to have a price that they won't go. >> i was, i mean, you are pretty good. but that was really good. you saved people a lot of pain on friday. that was a nice lift. the list was false because there is a lot of funds that are on the wrong side of the trade. i think we should never invest in irony. it was something to have a caesar chicken wrap on my shoulder and a pizza on my other shoulder. what happened friday is the beginning of liquidation. it started earlier in the week. there are funds that are down a lot in selling. check the headlines of stories. go to yahoo finance and you will see sale after sale after sale. the market can't handle it. there is not enough cash rep.
as i pointed out a number of times. the pain was a lot worse than you would see with some of those decli declines. among some of the big funds investing in the stocks. has been worse. one wonders how that will continue to play itself out. maybe it is done, jimmy don't know. it is important if it is liquidation we won't know. it is entirely possible that we get to some level where actual biers come in. we were not on that level on friday. netflix, yelp and in tell. it held up. look at enc it gave up nothing. traditional old line tech. the stocks that we had to warn
about. the fundamentals are fine. just got over valued versus where people wanted to sell it. those are two out of three you have to watch. a lot of upgrades on the street this morning. they out perform saying the recent sell off has created a buying opportunity. also pacific crest upping intell to out perform. under armor upsell coa. is this a function of getting cheap enough? >> there was a note today golden buying opportunity in enterprise so software and it has the hit list. this was the april massacre. workday, fire eye, net sweep. all good companies, let's see whether this along with the issues that you had could cause
things to stablize. in the meantime procter & gamble could raise it's dividend. warren buffet likes it. when you read that he is not just bad luck, he has lost his game, lost his alpha ability. i think this is a procter market right now. the one thing that could scare the shorts is that one of their favorite names to short got a take over bid this weekend. mallen croft. >> i recommended quest to "mad money" and i was hit by a word that aetna wasn't going to support it for the syndrome and this was a name that people told me was the equivalent of autonomy. that could scare some of the
shorts. and bet against the workday and concur. let's talk about some of these deals. maybe we'll call it a merger monday. we had that deal on the pharmaceutical side. $5.2 billion or so in cash and stock. well, it was at the time 86 and up. it will be worth the deal. giving credit to a lucrative ms drug and $30 a share point. questioning the actual chemical make up of the ingredients in the gel which is one of their key for -- >> that is their key really.
>> right. >> so they have a 20 plus percent shortage that being quest core but what is a more important theme here that we continue to talk about playing out time and again is tax in versions. it is an irish corporation for tax purposes. it is the st. louis corporation in the real world. there are two worlds. they do not have that kind of a tax jurisdiction. when you are in specialty pharma you need to pursue a tax in version on your own to be able to compete you want to in square as many products as you can. and the stock goes higher.
this is a drug that was questioned they questioned at 60, 50, and 30. obviously not questioning it. how many divisions does malencrod have versus citron. always talking about the indications. it is good people the shorts will say it remains closed. you can assume this was the best they could do. it was 49.5% of the combined. 50.5. it was the smaller of the two. quest core didn't have that
irish tax treatment. you can't compete now in specialty pharma in particular. when we talk about these tax treatments. look at endo they have higher multiples than any of the other companies that do the same types of things that don't have a more favorable type. >> i thought for sure that perigo did a deal. i thought for sure that perigo would see through it. i put them on "mad money" and i listed it. i said earnings per share are earnings per share. it worked. it went up dramatically and when i look at what mallincott is
doing. until our government figures this out. if you are a phiser or like any of those names. you more it and try to lower your income as much as you can. you don't need to go to ireland to do that. the cash you makeover sees you can't bring back for acquisition without it being taxed. >> so, it helps in a lot of different ways. in areas like specialty pharma where you are acquiring a diversified group of drugs. they did a deal all of these hot deals came during that deal. they are making people a lot of money. i remember when it was a great
chemical company. again, the idea that it is a foreign company is ridiculous. >> orange county company getting together. it goes to the point that you made. and the need to do something and yet what are the hopes for that. i remember taking classes at that facility at harvard and it was a rich fantastic company with a rich family. i guess they were irish and i didn't know. >> tax attorneys would say they are great americans. >> what is the point? >> when we come back this morning millions were treated last night to the new season of hbo's "game of throwns requesth. nasdaq is off and more losses
they knew steve. he was probably one of the great wrestlers of all-time. they said steve's kid came out great. come on. steve can't be. yeah, i mean his son and it's a remarkable show. it is one of the most successful shows of all-time. it is charging people $14 a month for the privilege. that is not an in significant sum. the yahoo news is going over the top. we are getting ready as are the content providers.
every day we get closer and closer to that world. people have the video service and the broadband coming into their home. there are so many different things happening. a content that needs to be produced for the companies that want to get involved in servicing their subscribers. i heard this is for youtube. makers is an interesting company. many people wanted to own this property and it is the plum because people want to do shorts, they want to do -- >> he did an interesting deal with dish. it was complicated in a sense but creating an over the top product that dish can offer two people. >> brings to mind the numbers for captain america winter
soldier. $96 million that is the best opening of the year so far. they have done aventhers and iron man 3. the top grossing films each year. >> bob has been on the show a couple of times and one of the things that we talk about is the brands. what has he done? he has created a procter & gamble of the movies. they have these billion dollar brands and is there any idea that we won't see the star wars? >> their slate is built until the end of 2028. there is no need to experiment. you have held and shoulders. why do you have to do shoulders and heads?
>> right. >> when will they start opening movies over the top at the same time as the screen. >> some guys are in the driver's seat and david car. that article was about comcast. powerful about playing off of jim securitewart's article. >> not just a cable company. he tipically does. just throwing that out there. >> correction. >> that guy, i know he doesn't. >> that guy? >> he is like one of the four top journalists. >> i don't think so. >> wow, i think that is called -- >> difference of opinion. >> we can. >> we can. i'll go up against him anytime on all fronts. >> i have read him for 30 years. >> i don't see david coming on

good morning 7 minutes to go here before the opening bell p. but let's talk a little bit of alcoa. they have done a remarkable job from here. this is what is important. deutsche bank downgraded the stock here. you've gone double stupid. >> wait to see the quarter. any stock that has gone up 60% is vulnerable. >> how do they avoid being vulnerable with that move up? >> they can't be. the only thing, this is just exactly the wrong time. i have talked about this downgrade with people in alcoa and we were shocked that he took it down so low at the time that
alcoa is beginning to get pricing now that the rules have changed. remember they have both downstream and up stream. you have made fun of me for being a backer of al coa. this is important, goldman finally comes out and likes the airlines. they initiate american air with the fine. that could be a bad sign. what you are seeing is, thank you these are cabitulations. you can't say that guy got it wrong. where they have come in. but these are real world stocks and it is not the real -- >> everybody tries to get that return are. i've never seen that before. it is a first on cnbc. you can be sure where the stock
is going. infinity and beyond. >> that was one of my friends from high school wrote that line. alex, okay. all right. here is the thing. these are still not that cohort of fireeyes someone saying buy them. i have been picking on them because i'm a means, because i've been using the stock that is over valued but a lot of people feel has good security. watch american and watch alcoah. i want to wait until wednesday. it is not going to be so good that you are going to want to buy it. >> jim is going to want to get to the b stocks after the bell. >> and then we'll do some d's. we have the opening bell four minute as way. stay with us. salesperson #1: the real deal is the passat tdi clean diesel
gets up to 795 highway miles per tank. salesperson #2: actually, we're throwing in a $1,000 fuel reward card. we've never done that. that's why there's never been a better time to buy a passat tdi clean diesel. husband: so it's like two deals in one? salesperson #2: exactly. avo: during the first ever volkswagen tdi clean diesel event, get a great deal on a passat tdi, that gets up to 795 highway miles per tank. and get a $1,000 fuel reward card. it's like two deals in one. hurry in and get a $1,000 fuel reward card and 0.9% apr for 60 months on tdi models.
later in the week with family dollar and jp morgan. earnings expectations for the quarter not all that impressive and i think that helps if you are trying to figure out whether you can get into something. >> you tend not to get hurt. so don't look to any earnings. that is one of the problems. i think one of the problems that the momentum investor has right now. there are no data points that are going to change. it is not like they are procter & gamble. >> yeah. they admitted to adding that engine sound. if you have driven a tesla you would know the sound.
i hear nothing. how is that? let's get the opening bell here out of the way. kicking off the week. here is the big board. the independent petroleum assessment. etrade financial doing the honors. man, what a couple of days. talking about p the saabout the of water flow. >> is there irony between schwab writing a critical letter. and the stories keep getting more complex and you know i think there is a lot of finger pointing. and the story is amazing. no one seemed to carat all. that was a fabulous interview
you guy s did. senator kaufman was speaking about this loudly. senator kaufman was a combination of 60 minutes. >> you are right. one senator not as important as one writer. he said was happening. and by the way, there have been other books written about it as well. >> he referred to that in his column. >> i remember him calling me saying will you please look into this. >> i remember people who were my friends and they agreed that it is true and happening and it is a tax on the system. they say the same thing how are we supposed to make money. how are we supposed to make money? i guess you are supposed to come back and say not that way. the exchanges have always been a
challenge for profit. but senator kaufman spoke, it was kind of like how did this happen that it was something that i used to put him on all the time. we were like why are we having more impact. the answer is we are on a business network and we were unable to get it going to main stream. you cross over to broadcast and you have a book written by a compelling writer and you have a hero. and that blew out everything. so it looks like times are changing. they may. we'll see what develops from the fact that it seems to be a real marker on this road. >> this could be put away in a drawer. >> i found a piece that i did in 2009. it is so ridiculous they run ahead of you. where is the sec, where is the
justice department. my nephew said, remember when we said stop talking about this already because you are boring people? we have to move on. >> let's move on. watch hsld today. the land's end split being official and they are carving out the best for his own sha shareholders. he is going to try and get what he can out of it. but what are you left with? part of the that becomes the
question mark for what is left. sears out so and then craftsman. what are you left with. a place that you and i would never shop at. >> as you know it is typical to have double digit declines. going to out perform a price target of $4.19. saying it creates a buying opportunity and they take yelp with a price target.
have we mentioned phizer? >> it is down 2%. i'm glad you tried to say it. apparently the mid point on the trial perhaps was a bit better than what showed at the end point. it is still positive. we are talking about a breast cancer drug that doubled the amount of time patients live without worsening the progression of the disease. the actual old line pharma had been doing well. i wouldn't be surprised if they have this nice franchise going and it represents a stock and it fits the parameters of what is working as opposed to what is not working. >> it is not working today. some disappoint given what appear to be better results.
this is a phase two trial by the way. phase two is so far away from approval. >> you are along way away from an nda. >> a lot of main stream play this morning. doubling to 20 months the time that an advance tumor does not progress or grow. >> that is a mistake to sell that stock. it has done well and phizer has a lot of things that are doing well right now. there are a lot of people that want to make a stand and i say, i had a fellow by the name of david crane on. >> he's the ceo of a large company. probab probably the most forward looking. they say you ought to look at solar city. it represents the way to have a panel on your roof rather than
have first solar on tonight. they are the ones you think of. you have the vast array of panels. i want to watch solar city too. that stock has corrected that is another name that people have given up on. let's see if that can hold. >> you watch gm down about 2/3 of a percent. starting those ignition repairs today. they met with ken feinberg and start to decide who is going to get paid or not. based on a ledgely false information over the years. >> nobody has their bonus called back. i will say this, there have been a lot of lists put out in the last 48 hours. my travel trust owns gm. i heard that gm is the most over owned. i think gm is very in expensive.
but if it has that much of a hedge fund following it wouldn't last. look at stocks like under armor. it is not going up. the liquidation continues here. >> it does appear to. so call eed draw downs. >> it is not a period where hedge funds have redemptions. >> i'm not talking about redemptions at the fund. >> doing poorly right now. we are not in a period where the windows open. where they are like look i don't see a lot of funds have a first quarter window in the time that -- >> people are not going to pull on a downside. >> those who are shooting against the hedge funds, save it for the quarter. if that is your game you are shooting against a non wounded tiger. maybe a sleeping tiger.
maybe a crouching tiger. >> hidden dragon. >> thank you for buying into one of my analogies. one of my literary and cinematological? >> the issue is about the nasdaq and some of the momentum names here. throughout the morning futures were weaker than the s&p 500 futures. that is a bit of concern that we have here. look at the whole week. we were down last week 1.7%. the s&p 500 is down 0.4%. you can see in the last two or three days. you can see that drop down. the nasdaq and the weakness that is there. the problem is pretty simple. if we don't have the data that
the ceconomy is getting better. the valuations are there. a lot of these momentum names are trading at twice that valuation. you are going to get questions by these companies. meantime, let's talk ipo's. this is going to be a huge week. we tell you how this is going to be building and building and building. we are going to have 14 ipo's this week. really big one is the largest
ipo of the year. this is the old gmac. they have expanded and have a bank now. ally financial. 12 o other ones as well. you can argue about whether or not but they keep coming. the average per month is about 30 going back for the last 25 years. right now we are averaging 26 per month. so we are we think this is an ip p o flood. guys, back to you. results of the national airline quality rating out this morning. how did carriers fair in the study? >> good morning phil.
>> it was a mixed bag in 2013. we'll tell you why. we look at the top five airlines rated in the annual rating. virgin america for the second year in a row ranked number one. of the 15 airlines who were the five lowest performing? frontier, united, express jet, skywest and american eagle. there you have the best an the worst. i said it was a mixed bag at the top. what do we mean by that? two areas complaints dropped 15% and nfewer dumped passengers. the airlines did a poorer job in terms of on time arrival. that was a drop of 3% compared to the year before. the percentage of miss handled
bags. when you look at last year it was the highest in terms of service but a mixed bag. back to you. when we come back, don't go ahead. we did a 27-point inspection on your chevy,ce, you got new tires and our price match guarantee. who's this little guy? that's birney. oh, i bet that cone gives him supersonic hearing. watch what you say around him. i've been talking a lot about his procedure...
(whispering) what? get our everyday price match guarantee plus a $100 rebate on 4 select tires from your tire experts. chevy certified service. can you start tomorrow? yes sir. alright. let's share the news tomorrow. today we failrly busy. tomorrow we're booked solid. we close on the house tomorrow. i want one of these opened up. because tomorow we go live... it's a day full of promise. and often, that day arrives by train. big day today? even bigger one tomorrow. when csx trains move forward, so does the rest of the economy. csx. how tomorrow moves.
guitar strings. strawberry yogurt. apples. >> the wand like device is linked to shopper accounts and includes a bar code scanner as you saw that allows users to say the items they wish in their pantry. they want to be present for every moment you consume something. >> they are not constrained by that. they are willing to invest that and given that by their share
olders. and they do generate free cash flow. they are not judged on reported earnings and based on day one from 1987. judge us on our ability to capture future cash flows. i think that is fascinating in the grocery business which has to be the same day. all of it keeps advancing the same way. >> it is interesting. there are a lot of companies like asplunk saying look, please don't judge us by easternings. this are not companies like the year 2000. but what you see is, these companies that have said the opportunity is too great. we can be amazon for our vertical and that is what you have to watch. the companies that have said that. they need to make a stand. today could be an interesting
day. we are seeing under arm mer. it is down three and now it is down a dollar. i think you have to wait until 2:00. that is when the margin selling usually runs it's course. we might be at a level where we could get stability. but watch today. we need to see the sellers and walked away. some of the upgrades they are sitting at the bottom. >> when things are out-of-control, the technicals are out-of-control.
>> if you held them what would happen is if they hold maybe i can't be as negative. if it holds, saidly suddenly i good. this is a two month low now for the nas and we are off 6% from the all time high. don't go away. i know what you're thinking... transit fares! as in the 37 billion transit fares we help collect each year. no? oh, right. you're thinking of the 1.6 million daily customer care interactions xerox handles. or the 900 million health insurance claims we process.

♪ >> a record number of warnings from companies before the earnings season. find out what we can expect. >> sears begins trading before it plans to close it's flag ship store. we'll talk about sears canada. >> first, we are going to talk about the markets on this monday morning. tech stocks got clobbered last week. all falling 20% from the highs. is more tech pain ahead?
let's bring in our panel. also joining us is channing smith with capitol advisers. we look at some of these high flying names in the spotlight continuing to slight. is it a signal for the broader market? >> i think it is investors taking money off the table. growth is where you want to be for the next three to five years. these companies ran way too fast too quickly. in the next couple of weeks it is a good time to buy them again. markets do this. it is time to take profits and they all stick together. they sell them in bunches. would you agree with that? it is a healthy correction? you want to take the opportunity to get back in or does it looks
like panic selling? >> i would agree that there is a p pull back in the cards? one of the things that is interesting that we have been tracking is the momentum. if you look at the technical damage, it is pretty significant. it is 50 day and 100 day moving a average. the only time we have done that is in may of 2014. we bounce off of those levels. 4,000 is a key level that we are watching. if you are looking for a bounce,
you said they would have to bounce off their $200 a week. do you think it could be that bad? >> i don't think it will be that bad. i think you will see buyers come in. the key is these earnings. if you look at twitter, it was a high flier. we got a disappointing earnings report. i think those stocks will have suffered the most. the old tech, if you look at intel, a lot of those valuations come up and the growth isn't there. it is not there so i think there is room for correction in that area. the sweet spot is probably in between. apple, google, qualcom, nice dividends and good free cash flow support. some people will be worried that there is something much bigger here. >> could we put up the charts of
the ten year yield if p possible? the yield on the ten year is going in the other direction? we have lost 30 basis points since january. is the growth within the economy to sustain the earnings where the market is at the moment? >> i think a lot of people look at the ten year to look at what is going on down the road. right now there are other things in play for the ten year. investors outside are buying our ten year. we have the europeans looking to cut rates again. you have the macro factors they are offsetting each other. we are looking for fundamentals. i didn't realize that the expectations have been down graded as much as they have. i understand they are saying 1.2. >> the weather factor. i think guidance is going to be
key. >> it will be company specific. when you group them together, look at specifically are you buying the right company that is going to grow through the first quarter. but i want to own companies that are going to grow and have bottom lines that are going to grow. at some point rates are going to back up. i hope they do. >> finally, where does that leave you? where do you want to be in this market ahead of earning's season? we get the fed minutes and we have this question of looming higher interest rates. >> capital advisers we have been dialing down the risk and moving into c oxcoca cola and we know revenue earnings are going to be there. valuations are elevated. i think friday was key.
that number was a disappointment. let's be honest. the whisper number was higher. everyone was expecting that snap back and it didn't happen. growth is coming along at this rate that we have seen in the next couple of years. there is going to be head winds for higher evaluations and higher market. good morning don. >> you guys were talking about it. we kick off that large cap earnings season. stocks appear to be running out of steam now. it hasn't been a big pull back and there are caution flags being waved aaround. you want to pay attention to this earnings season. you have to know earnings growth
expectation have been set early already. only expected to post grown of around 1.1%. second, there is a somewhat positive lining and that is the sales picture. sales have expected to grow by 1.257%. that might not seem like a lot if both come to fruition there. it would be the first time that sales growth has out paced profit growth. so here is the story for a few key sectors to watch. the strongest growth will come from telecom and consumer discretionary. those stocks expected to grow by nearly 6%. as a whole flat on the year and those stocks are down 4% in 2014. the worst performing sector in
that basis. the weakest profit growth is expected to shrink by 3%. and energy stocks are expected to shrink by more than 5%. three out of ten sectors are expected to post profit c contracti contraction. stocks just off all time highs, fundamental investors may pay more attention whether or not the numbers can justify those current evaluations. those earnings season can be critical. >> thanks a lot. >> ecommerce giant testing the amazon dash. dash will allow customers to scan products in their pantry or verbally order products via a

and netflix. we have seen yelp and stocks continue to extend their losses into this morning. cramer's point was he wouldn't be afraid to take a flyer on one high flyer and be prepared to be wrong tomorrow. in this level, technically, some say they're getting close. >> if this was 2000, you would say they're bad companies and not coming back. you look at google or facebook, almost at the lowest levels it's had in a very long time. you have to look at these on a company by company basis, do the homework and decide which ones you want to be for the long h l haul. >> this is confusing, zillow, twitter, zynga, f5, also a lot of momentum names down. we have earnings next week and tuesday we have intel, yahoo!
google and sandisk. i will be watching in particular intel because of what it says about pcs and servers. google for the advertising market in general and enterprise markets where they've been struggling. what they say about the second half is going to be really important for other companies in the sector. we've seen a lot of money moving from momentum names into ciscos and intels. microsoft, if they don't sound relatively bullish in the last half -- >> are they growing the user base? are the cores enough to justify the base? they should be making money and if they aren't, is the marketing experience credible? that is the three prong aspect for momentum names. >> that is especially true for these companies and a lot of focus whether it can grow again and whether that justice the valuation. do you think there is a separation between your old line tech and your new line tech and
how much give companies are willing to offer? >> i read the hp article and cost-efficiently. pc sales are not as bad as people think. pc sales are still needed incorporations. >> corporate pc where? we can't tell you exactly where but it's coming. >> certainly, you want to see revenue growth for momentum names but doesn't say what multiple to put on forward. for the bigger tax, where is the growth going to come from not just product-wise but grey gaffgaff -- geographically. if there's pressure on servers, if people aren't buying enterprise software at the rate they need, that could be a problem at least for the next two quarters. based on sentiment, hard to know how the market will take that. >> art cache the last half hour said it's hard to know where the
normal in biotech is going and kentucki qesque eq esq e ending and it will be interesting to see what these real numbers are. meanwhile, a story we broke over the weekend. wall street is willing to give money to these start-ups no matter how profitable or unprofitable at this point. money is cheap and now mobile payments companies square has sured secured a new revolving credit facility. the number i'm hearing $200 million for the credit facility. morgan led the deal and bark clays and i'm told it was inked over the weekend, recent investments in the range of $5 billion. we reported the dropbox did something similar to this a couple weeks ago. wall street is extending an olive branch and wants to give you money and rates are low, why wouldn't you take it. >> it's who gets the ipo.
you get the credit facility by the bank and the market says it will take you public you have the credit line to buff it, all the spending you have to get the growth and allow you to go public. this is very typical in companies willing to go out. >> this is a company in an interesting market getting a lot of insight from wall street as well as against it. you have david vinnier and sara friar, cfo of square who has experienced goldman sachs. but they are challenging the traditional challenge of wall street. >> it does. it makes sense to take out a home equity line. you never know how long they can use their stock as currency after they go public even. why not. >> they have a good toehold on retail, too. they announced their partnership. looking for a big broad national brand in a lot of locations and
coo, you could do worse than schultz. >> especially when these companies are high flyers, looking for credibility. inking something like this is the sign wall street believes you have potential to be viable. >> and square will process $30 billion this year. that credit facility could be used to reduce rates, put more hardware in the channel for the processing unit. this is not a cheap business, and if the window closes and they can't go public they will be happy to have the $100 million. >> it will basically sit around for a rainy day, if they want to use it for growth or refinance other stuff they will start paying a higher rate when they touch it. for a company 5 years old has this in place, that's a good sign. >> maybe that's why visa is down. >> they have a partnership. and amazon making another
move to insure you never have to leave your home. the company has released another piece of hardware to encourage you to make purchases via amazon.com. the product is a small wand, bar code connector and scanner for ordering groceries on the go. here's this video they released for that product. >> the scanner is really fun to use. you never have to worry about being out of something you need. with amazon dash you can order over 500,000 items. >> guitar strings. >> strawberry yogurt. >> apples. >> what do you think? >> i literally thought it was a parody video. i thought i was late to april fool's. your mobile phone has this functionality. jeff king is the king of products to market services. this is a marketing commercial for amazon fresh. >> you give this thing away?
>> i'm sure. >> i think this is brilliant. this goes to the amazon fresh customer already paying the 250 to be a part of that. seems to be targeted specifically to a caregiver, often a mom who might not have their phone in a pocket at all times during the day, maybe trying to watch a kid, hands dirty in the kitchen, a little more robust. maybe this pushes out the famous amazon phone a little longer. it satisfies the need with wifi at home. this is good. >> i think it is a brilliant marketing campaign and jeff b s bez bezos can produce anything at a great price. if i was fresh direct on the east coast i would be trying to get one of these wands and do the same thing and show competition. >> you're asking yourself why you didn't do it in the first place. >> yes. but you didn't do it because it
can all be built into the app. >> we saw it working on fire tv as well. i think there's a lot more than marketing to this. they're trying to keep the order flow going to the service, increase loyalty. >> the debate is does this make the grocery store the showroom. we talked about showrooming, not a new phenomenon. when you have goods cheap to start with, they are oftentimes perishable, do you really want to comparison shop for a wrong time? >> i think shopping for groceries is such a halls, especially for two parents in a household. that web van was a good deal and the infrastructure was not in place. it makes sense. we could see produce showroom and why not? it's cheaper and convenient. >> who gets to take home what's in the showroom? >> this is a showroom in your home and works on the wifi network. this is for things that don't
have bar codes and amazon wants to keep things going constantly and you can't scan an apple. >> it is this morning's "squawk on the street," what's the ultimate potential of amazon's magic wand? tweet your responses. new players in the tv game. yahoo! looking and netflix taking a page from amazon. how new is it? details coming up next. ♪ i know a thing about an ira ♪ and i got the tools ♪ to do it my way ♪ i got a lock on equities ♪ that's why i'm type e ♪ ♪ that's why i'm tyyyyype eeeee, ♪ ♪ i can do it all from my mobile phone ♪ ♪ that's why i'm tyyyyype eeeee, ♪ ♪ if i need some help i'm not alone ♪

le let's handle amazon first. >> i don't get it because of yahoo!'s distribution, they're strong on the web but seems like a lot of growth in tv watching they're trying to go is to a set top box to the living room. yahoo! not as strong there. they have to do a deal with somebody get more on the x-box and apple tv somewhere to get money to monetize it. how do you monetize it? do you put commercials in the actual program? not a lot of people doing that. are you going to do a subscription service? >> i totally get this and think it is the first thing they have done in a long time that makes sense. they are a media company. it makes more sense than trying to beat google in a search. and they can compete directly against netflix. >> they will show them on the home page?
>> yahoo! is the biggest adverti advertisiing home page, people pay millions of dollars and they can get that and it's the bu business they should be in. in the pre-mayer days, yahoo! approached them and whether they condition do it the right way >> the yahoo! home link is the biggest flood of traffic. anything nay get on the home page. if they promo this they will get lots of views. >> judging from how well they've done previously will this be a success? >> news and short form is different than what we're talking about here, long form. a lot of people trying to do short form on news. that's hard to get eyeballs on the web. we have seen an upswing in demand and not enough people. >> i don't know how much growth
is there in viewing this sort of thing is on a pc. that's where their footprint is and it will cost them to build it in the mobile and living room. >> any can get on the fire tv box. apple a little bit harder. any can get on roku. you give them your icon, skim your web page and boom, it's on the tv set. >> mark leverwich on the list of things not hot, not not, just me. number two, yahoo! is in talks. >> just sell some ads. so easier, they have a giant audience and unmeh to do this deal >> second to trail mix. >> they always have that. when we come back, winter is coming, actually, it's hopefully over in new york. don't tell that to the game of throne fans who could not stream the season last night. what that means for them going

these high profile event series. >> we talked about how this was not the first time and the finale was frustrating for some. at what point do subs exit and potential sub say maybe i won't get it, the marginal decision whether to subscribe or not? >> i think this is a hiccup. an issue of peak capacity. hbo revolved the issue within about an hour and a half. i think it's a hiccup. i think it's growing pains here as hbo tries to adjust to how popular this service has proven to be. >> tom, a lot of times you can't predict growing pains and it is an embarrassment of riches and in some ways a good thing. how would a company prevent this from happening in the future? do you limit the number of people who can get on or make sure for one night only you have more band width to offer. how do you do this?
>> i'm not sure the issue was band width per se. it may have been something internal to the system where it couldn't process the number of people trying to log in at the same time. it's technically achievable. they should be able to fix the issues they had. it points to the fact that this is a popular way to get these shows. i should point out on tv you can watch the premiere. >> of course,. >> no problems there. that's undoubtedly how most game of thrown throne fans chose to the show. it's that initial crush of demand that was the problem. >> or listen to your co-worker spoil it for you the next day at the office. that's a different story. their tweets are hilarious, looks like there's trouble in the realm. having trouble, send a raven.
they did have a sense of humor about it. but it did remind you have what was said about passwords and didn't mind sharing passwords and do you think he still stands by that view a password is interchangeable? >> i thought the trouble in the realm thing was a little too cutesy for this issue. especially because jeff from timewarnered a an investor conference said they would make a priority making sure hbo-go didn't have trouble delivering what the fans wanted. it is a minor embarrassment here especially since they recently had trouble and said they would work on fixing it and they didn't. >> we had trouble at home. try again tonight. can't wait to see the beginning of season 4. todd, thanks a lot. todd spangler, digital editor at "variety." let's send it to don for a

of the day. dow down 115 and s&p, down 11 and nasdaq down 27. and let's get to the strategists as we get closer to the european close, what does it mean for today? let's keep this in privilege. s&p made a new high last week and a few days off the high. that observation is important in the context of what we're talking about.
what i mean by that is everyone is focused on the fire s and those that endured and to look at what the majority focuses on, they're still at or for the record highs. >> do you think this is related to qe or beginning of the taper some have argued today? >> we have been out front saying tapering is not tightening. i stand by that. at the same time, it would be intellectually dis honehonest n observe janet yellin's press conference coincided with some of this move. it maybe didn't cause -- wasn't the sole cause. you mean the six month comment. >> yes. her first press conference, i disagreed with the market interpretation. i don't think she meant six months and you called argue that. there is this deal like the taper tantrum, some is being
taken off the table and some down 20, 25% from their highs, they've outperformed over the last years so hard to deny there isn't some profit taking going on. >> we will have the first quarter earnings out next week. do you think it will be relatively weak given growth and everything we've seen, is that one of the reasons behind the sell jo or is that a compounding effect once we start seeing the numbers come out? >> i disagree. we've known qe-1 would be certainly since the day of the sto storm. >> which one? >> it's been several months now we've known anything that's gone wrong in q-1 ill be blamed on the weather. and 2, 2 1/4 % up. we know it's not good. it would be difficult for me to argue the last four days worth of selling negates the fact we have known about this the last four or five weeks.
>> as someone i would argue is relatively cautious throughout the bull market or last 12 months, when do you get interested in a short term move into stocks? >> we've been long. i wouldn't disagree with the word cautious. as one of my favorite clients likes to say, there's only two positions, long and short. we've generally been long. there are still macro observations and that is how we look at the investing landscape worth being fearful of. right now the level of the average p&e in the stock market. we're certainly not screaming bulls. our position in the last 24 months has generally been you have to be long and we mayintai that position now. >> good to get your guidance. dan greenhouse at btig. with all that, we announce the european close. >> look at the reds on the screen, germany down almost 2%. a double whammy j down at the beginning because of what wall
street did friday and today. spanish production very healthy. reuters is reporting this week greece might actually return to the public market selling 3 billion euros of debt. in general, it is a broad-based move down although you have seen some areas of the market that have done really well this year and outperformed this year. i mention the uk house builders. we do have some builders in paris. and they have been explaining the deal to create the largest cement maker in the world and going to sell off $7 billion of assets. 15 separate sets of regulators. the stock of both of those players has done relatively well. one is up 17%.
in paris, the cable maker has been celebrating the fact he won the vending war for assets, $19 billion in all. he was pitted against martin as he becomes victorious in creating a fourth quadruple player in the paris market. you can see some of the rivals in that market, if you go back to where we were, they are in negative territory. and they failed to win the bidding process. >> simon hobbs, thank you. >> let's get to where we were on friday to sheila at the nasdaq. >> hey, carl. we're just a few hours into this session and a volatile one. at one point the nasdaq was in the green and it has picked up, down about.4. here's the silver lining. we are seeing some upside

[ male announcer ] open your eyes... to the 6-cylinder, 8-speed lexus gs. with more standard horsepower than any of its german competitors. this is a wake-up call. ♪ welcome back. more than 30 health care companies have gone public this area. this morning, there is a new health care real estate investment trust trading on the nasdaq. this is nicolas, ceo of american investment capital. good morning to you. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> congratulations on the health care trust trading on the nasdaq. this is a portfolio of mostly
medical office buildings. where do you see the growth in this industry and why does that make now the right time to take this company public? >> the health care is extremely exciting because we see it in the 65-year-old age group as we see 11,000 new 65 year-olds everyday, but also now for the first time, the population of 85 years old is actually growing. as we continue to see the mna activity and health care providers looking for ways to redeploy capital, they're looking to jetson some real estate in long term transactions where they can redeploy that capital. being a public read today, the markets are right and trading very well and being diversified in medical office, senior assisted living and acute care and post acute care, we're
playing in that space we really see the growth for not just years to come but many decades to come. >> it is up about 9% this year. had a rough 2013 but investors are looking for heavy dividend income plays like the reits provides. when you look going forward and your stock today, you see the stock down 5%. you guys have another ipo in a couple weeks. is the investor sentiment going in the other direction now? >> no. today was -- this is a listing so not an ipo. we came out, the first trade was around 10:50 even though the opening kicker was at 11. it was a listing, not an ipo. we're trade iing on par for they and we're seeing very good volume coming in. as volume is building in the stork and investors getting behind it we're seeing the book build and good volume.
it is starting to tighten up. that's the kind of thing you look for in the first day of trading. >> nicklas, you talk about how there is a shift going on between hospitals that cost a lot for the outpatient clinics. is there still room for hospital play or always things not hospital related? >> no. absolutely. the hospitals are very active. we're also seeing senior assisted living as a growing area. our focus has been on newer assets. this is different than reits the last decade. it's about 11 years old and we have good leverage capacity on our balance sheet of total enterprise value of $3 billion. we see the opportunity with the population aging. the other thing that's really interesting, we're primarily focused on private pay. we're not highly impacted by obamacare. there's a huge market -- only a very small percentage of health
care assets are owned by reits or institutions. most are still in the hospitals and senior assisted living company's hands. there's a huge market potential of trillions of dollars of real estate looking for a long term home. i think the public reits really give it just that. this is not a short term play, this is a play that will last for decades. >> nicklas, you have another reit that will be trading also at the nasdaq in a couple weeks. you'll have a busy april. thank you for joining us on squawk "squawk on the street" this morning. >> thank you. >> over to don. >> hey. check out what's happening with credit suisse, switzerland's largest bank and helping americans avoid paying taxes. this comes from the manager, for docume documents and examining whether the bank lied to new york authorities creating tax

question. we don't position ourselves against the fuel cars. i myself come from the world of racing. i i'm a petro head myself. we think now is the time to change to electric and they can co-exist for a while. probably in 20 years everything will be electric. >> we know electric cars don't make a sound, right? they are silent, so to speak. is the only sound the sound of the tires on the pavement? how does that work? >> actually, we were surprised, they make a cool sound. i don't know if you remember "star wars," that's the kind of sound we want for races. >> the culture of wearing headphones and noise cans lers. >> that will change. we want to talk to the younger target not used to loud racing. they don't want a car, they want an ipad or tablet. we want to go to those.
this is almost a video game on top of a race. >> you have one race here in new york. where is your dream location? >> my dream location in new york would be central park. but it might be a little bit difficult to get permissions for that. we're looking at different alternative locations to show the new york skyline in the back. that would be a dream for us to have a race there. >> you could probably do a rickshaw race? >> what's the purse like for the winner? >> $5 million for the drivers, not not a bad purse. >> if i'm not here tomorrow you know where i'm at. >> we can't wait. hope you come to new york. a ala alahandro, ceo of formula e. the company announce iing lr numbe numbers, what's with the stock slide? good morning.
