tv   Power Lunch  CNBC  July 15, 2014 1:00pm-2:01pm EDT

1:00 pm
these are our own -- >> that's a mt. rushmore. final trades. gemma? >> infrastructure is investor friendly regulation. >> josh brown. >> kors. >> uup. >> joey? >> crus. >> ocn. bye-bye. power starts now. halftime is over. the second half of your trading day begins now. >> scott, thank you very much. indeed the second half does begin right now. it's been an interesting first half, a big rise on the open, then the fed chair janet yellen grilled on capitol hill. stocks dropping alternates bit. she says the economy continues to improve, but the recovery isn't yet complete. i think we kind of knew that. what this means for the fed for rate hikes and when. for the economy overall, and most importantly for you and your money. big warning coming from the federal reserve. both sectors getting bruised
1:01 pm
today on fears they may still be a little bit overvalued despite a recent drop and it's been a fairly substantial one. is there money to be made? if so, where. if there is, we'll tell you about the next big catalyst. this space is really heating up. plus an exclusive interview with the economist, yes, the economist, who is behind the u.s. soccer, the national team. why he may be the man to bring the world cup in qatar. back to the u.s. first let's check in with sue at the new york stock exchange. and breaking from previous undploimt and inflation targets for when a rate hike might be
1:02 pm
considered. our senior economics reporter steve liesman is here to put in all in context. >> get to the monetary policy stuff in a second, but not from the chair's testimony, but the 'companies monetary policy report. and some specific parse, special small cap, bio, later in the q&a she was asked about how low rates can distort markets. >> low rates do have an incentive to push individuals to look for -- look for yield, to reach for yield. and that is both a good thing and a bad thing. on the one hand, we need healthy risk-taking in order to spur recovery. and low interest rates i think have had a positive effect on
1:03 pm
helping the recovery, but of course we have to be careful looking for situations where low rates may be incenting behavior that can be dangerous to financial stability. >> the report now on policy, yellen seemed to keep the markets on track to think the fed would raise rates sometime next year. the consensus is for around june or july. she did suggest there had been better results in the job market, particularly in broader measures of labor slack, but she's not worried about a key issue, wages pushing up inflation. >> while rising compensation or wage growth is one sign that the labor market is healing, we're not even at the point where wages are rising at a pace that they could give rise to inflation. >> initial hawkish reaction by the market to the comments by yellen, but overall, sue, i think she kept on track the
1:04 pm
belief that obviously tapering ending -- qe ending in october, and then the fed on track sometime next year to be in what they're calling the fed liftoff. sue? >> steve, thanks for explaining it all to us. let's get the market reaction. bob pisani is here at post 9, as well as kenny polcari. bob, you go first. she was specific in the written part of her report, and we saw that reaction. you and i talked about this last week. i mentioned pandora, zynga. it's right to ask those questions. there is a belief that they are going to have very great earnings and/or revenue growth in the future. some of these plays pan out, some of them do not, but that's what momentum stocks are like. >> kenny, your reaction?
1:05 pm
>> absolutely right. i think the markets are confused by the comments. if you noticed, pardon of what she had was on the one hand tapers is coming, rates will stay low for a long time, but maybe not. if the economy turns around, rates will go up. so i think the market is confused. it hears one thing and in another it hears something else. >> but that's why it was a masterful performance. i thought she did a fine job threading that needing. when we have to go into some testimony that's buried in the supplemental report for us to find something that is in any way controversial. the rest of her statements i thought were fairly down the middle. >> i think the statements were good, but i think in the end the market became confused, because it heard both sides of the argument in one sentence. then they heard something else right away, so i think the market remains a little bit confused. >> which takes us up to tyler and ron insana, right, ty? >> we're going to talk more about that very point among other things with ron insana who
1:06 pm
wrote a sudden lid controversial piece where you state your reasoning why the traders have it basically wrong. >> you've heard a lot of complaints from people i know pretty well, that this all has to end badly, that just by virtue of this never having been tried before, there's no way -- >> this sort of new -- >> unconventional monetary policy, quantitative easing and the like, that it has to end badly, because we don't have experience with it. if you go back and read all of the fed papers on this stuff, and i've spend a fair amount of time what bernanke has written, what they have written about the current environment. in fact it goes back many, many years, talking about unconventional monetary policies. they have kind of laid the groundwork for all of this. there's been a lot of work done, and i think they're fairly confident not only have they implemented them properly, but they'll exit them properly as well. without them necessarily having another depression, another
1:07 pm
crash, hyper-inflation, a falling dollar, skyrocketing interest rates. i think that's a misguided point of view, but one that persists, no matter what kind of data you get. >> let me get your quick thought. kenny just mentioned, indicating that the market remains confused. how can it be? i sense an awful lot of whining from the market. they want yellen to say at 2:00 p.m. on march 17th, 2015, we're going to raise interest rates by a quarter point and we're going to do another quarter point at 3:30 p.m., and then they will sell the hell out of the market anticipating the next rise. >> that's right. >> the think, tyler, here i think a lot of people are philosophically disposed to believe this has to end badly. even though these don't have evidence or empirical evidence for that position. >> or maybe that it can't end badly without them having said it has to end badly. >> exactly. >> you've got it, tyler. there's substantial group of trader. there is a substantial group of
1:08 pm
traders, a substantial minority that have been ideological at war with the federal reserve for the last five years and they're dying to be proved right. i think we're being kind about talking about whining. there's a lot of people -- >> kenny, is the market misguided? are traders misguided? >> i think there's a certain segment that are misguided, but i do think the fear here is they're -- inflation is going to ramp up and they're going to lose control of it. >> if i can address that right away we had agricultural commodities crash. in all hid lines inflation numbers will be coming down for months. oil has dropped below $is 00 a barrel. natural gas is just above four bucks. we have inflation indicators coming down again, not going up, as ms. yellen said, some of these inflation scares are probably transitory, tyler. so for all the wore about headline inflation, mo of the numbers are going in the
1:09 pm
opposite direction. >> iron though those prices have collapsed food prices have not yet collapsed. >> corn, wheel and soy beans all at four-year lows, gasoline will come down. >> we hope. >> we're going into the end of the summer drive season. i think headline inflation will switch. >> we have to leave it there. ron, appreciate it, kenny, bob. sue, down to you. we're going to go uptown to the nasdaq, which is taking a hit, the biggest loser by the social media and biotech stocks, mentioned by the fed report. warning that valuations in those sectors seem stretched. >> while yellen's remarks mostly focused on the health of the economy, a separate fed monetary policy report signaled concern over asset prices diagnose valuation metrics in some sectors do appear substantially stretched, particularly those
1:10 pm
with smaller firms in the social media and biotechnology industries despite a notable downtornado. now, these comments and social media and biotech stocks sharply low ser among the social losers, yellen, pandora, facebook, groupon and twitter, all of which are trading, some analysts consider excessively high. in the biotech spay, jill ad, and ver tech shares moving to the down side. the sell-off in these two sectors are weighing on the nasdaq composite, which is currently lagging the major indices, and today's trade we're seeing it down about 30 points on the day. we'll continue to watch those two sectors, biotech and social media. >> seema, thank you very much. the fed warning about biotech, but there is one big catalyst that could drive the industry forward. we will have that story for you, you're going to have to wait a while. it's going to be worth waiting for. meanwhile, a quick market flash.
1:11 pm
>> for this one here, i can't wait to hear that story. check out what's happening with michael kors, two companies saying it's increased the promotional activity, which has increased concerns about profit margins. that stock you can see currently down about 6% in ta-da ace trade. tyler, back over to you. >> dom, thank you very much. earnings in focus today, profits at jpmorgan beat dropping 8% from a year ago, but that was better than some of the forecasts. pull back in bond and currency trading. this has been one of the weak spots. still, the company beat on the top and bottom lines, goldman sachs trouncing the estimates, earnings boosted there by strength in the investment banks business, and why not? there have been a lot of mergers, and they have been number one. shares of goldman and jpmorgan up strongly on an otherwise rather soggy day. jpmorgan at 5847, up $2.18.
1:12 pm
goldman sachs up 1.46 at 168 and 46. sue? what are bank earnings telling us about that sector? financials are up more than 4 with respect. jeff jack ablynn and jeff husse. nice to have you here, gentlemen. >> jack, i'm going to start with you. the financials so far so good. what does it tell you about the overall market? >> it's saying that generally that the market goes as financials go. what we find is a very high correlation between the outperformance of financials and the direction of the market itself. it's something like a 70% correlation, so generally things are moving along well when the financials, particularly the large banks are moving in the right direction. so that's a good sign. >> jeff, do you agree with that? >> i agree with that. i think it also tells you that even the ramifications of qe still is working, that is it's feeding through the financials.
1:13 pm
the financials are making money off of very low rates, and through m & h activity as was noted for i believe goldman sachs, so i think it's benefiting the financials and should continue to do so even with modest tapering that's going on. >> jeff, let me stay with you for a moment. ms. yellen, in the written report, talked about stretched valuations in some of the social media companies, some of the biotech companies. i know you and jack are underweight small caps. what did you make of her comments? >>. >> you know, there are some stretched valuations. i thought it was interesting she called out specific industries so discretely, but ultimately i think you could make the case about covenants, bank lone, high yield. there are parts of the market that are frothy, but there are parts of the market that are still of value. i think that's what makes a market. we're finding good value and believing in some of the babies
1:14 pm
are being thrown out with the bathwater for lack of a better term and seeing when biotech is down some of the good tech names are down. there's buys opportunities. we've been focusing less on beta and more on directional strategies one or multiasset portfolios to try to capture some of those individual opportunities. >> you know, jack, ms. yellen said that the economic recovery is not where she wants it to be, obviously, but that always leads me to the consumer, because the consumer driving so much of the economy. does that worry you at all? how do you invest against that? >> it's certainly a kind of lopsided recovery. we're seeing growth in the industrial side, growth in the energy patch. we're getting a lot of manufacturing export business. auto sales were strong, and my sense is that may have crowded off some consumer spending that
1:15 pm
was going on. we also wrote a piece about a months ago, maybe even a little less than that with the tension in iraq was pushing oil prices to -- very close to a pinch point for a consumer. that could perhaps subside a little bit, and of course housing, we're generally selling roughly less than -- a little more than 400,000 fewer new homes than the demographics would suggest. it's a lopsided recovery, and i think the fed certainly ms. yellen wants to talk it down, because they want to keep rates as low as possible for as long as possible. >> you also like large cap, europe and emerging markets, right? >> we do. as long as liquidity is flowing that's where we want to be. i do agree with ms. yellen that small-cap stocks are not only stretched, but one of the most dangerous major markets in the world right now. >> you get the last word, jeff. domestic markets strictly or go
1:16 pm
overseas as well to emerging? >> we see some opportunities in europe. we have a slight preference one or allocation for grurp. questioner also thinking longer term if you have a long enough, emerging markets are starting to look interesting. we think where they are in the business cycle and interest rate cycle is problematic, but the valuations are cheap. we're continuing to emphasize less beta, less directional strategies, trying to introduce more nondirectional strategies into our multiasset funds here at russell. >> thank you both. sue, thank you between janet yellen's testimony and a mixed bag of economic reports, what do small business owners make of the economy? we're going straight to a source to find out. a terrible subway accident at the height of the morning rush in moscow. we'll have the latest about that one. state,
1:17 pm
we're changing the way we do business, with startup ny. we've created tax free zones throughout the state. and startup ny companies will be investing hundreds of millions of dollars in jobs and infrastructure. thanks to startup ny, businesses can operate tax free for 10 years. no property tax. no business tax. and no sales tax. which means more growth for your business, and more jobs. it's not just business as usual. see how new york can help your business grow, at

welcome back to "power lunch." just off their session lows right now, this after the company reduced the outlook for the second quarter, blaming a challenging environment. the company expects to close 44 stores by the end of the third quarter. you can see the shares down by almost 8%. the rent to own market very, very interesting. also warning signs, they
1:20 pm
followed the similar comments made from rival rent acenter, which said earlier this month, it will fall below expectation. the budget-conscious side of the market very much in focus with those two stocks. back over to you. to moscow, where rescue teams are working underground going through twisted steel after a subway derail at the height of the morning rush hour. the death toll just hit 21. more than 150 others were rushed to the hospital after being brought above ground. as you may know, moscow has been a top targets for terrorists, but russian officials say they do not believe terrorism played a role. this was the deepest part of the system. israel accepting an egyptian cease-fire, but hamas rejected it. to show good faye they stole
1:21 pm
from 3:00 through 5:00. the israeli air force resumed the attacks, and one top hamas leader said israel's willingness to accept the cease-fire proves they are losing the battle, so a very difficult situation once again in the middle east. a slew of economic reports out on the dale of janet yellen's testimony. new york manufacturing conditions are the best in more than four years. rose less than expect indeed june, as did retail sales, while u.s. business inventories were up in may. so a bit of a mixed ticket there. so what do small business owners make of the economy right now? are they hiring? are they more optimistic than they are? insight from abdul baytops, ceo of one federal solution. >> how are you? >> how are you? good to have you babb, abdul. you were with us last fall at
1:22 pm
the height of the government shutdown crisis. your company replies i.t. services to a lot of companies. last year when we spoke up to lay off or furlough a lot of people. are things looking better? >> yes, they are. you know, i only represent a small portion of the small businesses, but by the same token, we do see an upward trend in the economy as well with the small businesses. i do think it depends on what market sector that small business is in as well, because a company like ourselves for cybersecurity, so there is a better market. we do see an upward trend. and new requirements that we're going after. more companies -- >> where are the opportunities specification? are you hiring and if so how much? >> we're hiring. again, it depends on the market. as well as medical research, those are the areas we see more
1:23 pm
hiring. over the last few months i think we've added maybe only 15%, but we have a forecast out from 15% to 25% over the next 12 months. that actually is good for a small business of our size. >> 15 to 20% more employees. >> correct. >> that would mean how many employees when you're all done? if we were to do that, maybe around the 160, 180 employees coup. we support the government as well as a small portion of u.s. companies across the u.s. >> because you're in the i.t. area and because tomorrow at delivering alpha we expect to hear secretary of the treasury jack lew talk about inspection and cybersecurity. if you had one question to ask the treasury secretary about how the government is doing on cybersecurity, what would your question be for him? >> my biggest question in cybersecurity is obviously when will they take it more seriously? it is a huge risk, and when are
1:24 pm
they going to invest the dollars that's needed to get the infrastructure up to speed. >> you seem skeptical that the government is doing enough? >> yeah, pretty muchivities thank you very much. glad your business is looking up. we hope to have you back again, sue. >> tyler, californians, if you're caught using water in ways you're not supposed to, you'll be in serious trouble. you will also have to pay the piper. plus the man behind u.s. soccer. he doesn't play, he doesn't coach, but he runs the whole thing, and he also happens to be a professor of economics at columbia university. meet the man behind it all next, and only on "power lunch." ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] if you can't stand the heat, get off the test track.

1:30 pm
18 in russia and 2022 in qatar, so it would by inappropriate to speculate about what might come out of that. that's expected to have some answers in the next couple months. fifa has a storied past in terms of accusations saturday bidding process is not fair and that the organization needs to tighten things up. do you see that from your perspective? and how can you move to change that if it is indeed the case. i do think the rules should be tightened up. i've stated it publicly. i think it should be a public vote. hopefully some of those things will happen. >> do you get the sense you're getting some traction on that, especially now, because soccer was just so much on the global stage, do you feel as though the time is right to perhaps push harder for those changes? >> we've been pushing hard. the concern is when things are
1:31 pm
going well, people say everything is fine. i don't think that would be the case. some of it has been very positive after a couple difficult years in a fifa election and a world cup decision, and hopefully we'll make more progress in areas that are important to us, and i think important for soccer's governance generally. >> you're responsible for the coach klinsmann. what did you learn from brazil? what are your reflections on brazil and what were his? >> i think we were obviously very pleased to get out of our group, which is the most important goal for everybodiery on. we were disappointed we didn't quite get the results we wanted with belgium, but yoreall, i think we were pleased withal progress. we still have a long way to go to be in the upper echelons,
1:32 pm
jurgen knows that. >> i know i can't tip your hat as far as the plans, but the u.s. team played so well that the momentum is high. they have the wind at their back. can you give us some idea of what we might have in story? >> i'm flying to l.a. tomorrow. we're going to meet, and the serious planning starzz for the next round of qualifications and events. a lot of what we need to do is at player development level. there's still a talent gap in terms of ability with the ball. we know that. we're not where west germany or germany is. we want to get better. over time he'll have the -- and we think we'll get the success we're looking for. >> one of the reasons i think it was so successful is because it was so widely carried. this year espn had the foundation and the broadcast rights. fox will get those in the next world cup. and there are some who say that the carriage isn't going to be as big and the attention won't
1:33 pm
by quite as widespread. you disagree with that, i believe? >> i think espn did a terrific job. good forward 1/3 partners of u.s. soccer and major league soccer. i think four years from now the ability that fog will have, the benchmark that espn has been set, will be met, not easy to exceed it, but fox is committed to the sports, committed to major league soccer, and i think you'll see a terrific cup. the ratings on this world cup were up 40%, and no one will pay the sort of money that fox did and let it sit on the shelf. tell me what you think about our economy here at home. you were just in brazil. brazil had fallen on hard times. they built ought they stadiums, yesterday the u.s. economic seems to be struggling a bit. she's going to keep interest rates low. from your vantage point, traveling internationally and coming back here at home, how does the economy look? >> i certainly want to

santelli is in chalk for us. >> hi, sue. it seems as though janelle yellen didn't help prices, look at the intraday chart. yields initially moving higher. paid more attention than much of the data, but let's put it simple. two-year yields are up one, more curve flattening, but maybe let's hit where the bushelitious aspects might be, where barclays and the index that reflects investment grade security. you see they do acknowledge, even though there's been a subtle adjustment. no matter what the rest of her testimony meant, you certainly see it show up in the dollar index, basically at one-month highs. back to you. the next big catalyst to
