6:01 pm
dow tumbling nasdaq losing. where we finally put the tumultuous month of february to bed, while worst february in eight years. i think it is worth perusing the high list, something different see what managed to hold up most of the day who made the cut let's see, there is salesforce which just biggest blowout reported after the close, it spent most of the session at record level i think the quarter is so good, so big, so strong, we will be speaking to ceo marc benioff just because a minute move in
6:02 pm
the treasure, made you flee the market, what can i say already at $12 billion in revenue, i see that going to $20 billion in a few years time. oh, and was in a fix, maybe the vix guys, maybe they forced you out a little bit next, how about tjx? the retailer, i should call it the retail comeback kid, marshall's karen cramer who ran the desk, used to make me wear a post-it on my forehead and go outside of the building at 100 wall streets
6:03 pm
and get her a soft pretzel and a diet coke. you better believe that made me a lot more disciplined and ceo brad jacobs has been on a couple of times. talking about how he took -- other members of your new high list that we need to address, and address right now while the wounds were still deep a collective post-it if you sold them during the big panic, where you felt like i can't stay the course because i am so darn scared, if you have conviction, if you believe in a company, you use the declines that we had today to buy the stocks, not to sell the stocks the first big name on the list, first big name is boeing which spend most of the day at new highs even at it dipped two
6:04 pm
bucks as it closes let's think about this aerospace for a moment, stands for the best american space engineering. tail winds all over the place, tail winds, do you think i can resist boeing's outlook gives you a 20 year visibility in the plane business so there is a plane shortage, but don't forget, there is a stock shortage i like that. stock shortage, boeing has been a voracious buyer of their own sales. boeing's business wasn't hurt by wage inflation, or some vix product. the stockgot slammed with everything else this month but the story remains in tact.
6:05 pm
i can only pray it goes lower after today's end of day give up i have been saying that the stock is headed to 400 then a stock you might be familiar with name of river, no, not denial, it is called amazon. some of you may know it as alexa. competitors may know it as the death star most popular cloud on earth. but if you are like me and tons of millions of others, you notice amazon prime which defines the way we shop. scratch that, it defines the way we live. all this means that the stock's rally was i think gettable maybe as gettable as they come identifying amazon hidden in plain sight.
6:06 pm
did you get washed out of amazon because you heard the fed chief may be worried that the economy is too hot if so, that is called a mistake. that is why you need conviction to stick to your guns. there is another stock that you may have felt compelled to trade in and out of over the last month. apple. yeah, this one spent most of the day at record levels before pulling back modestly after the late sell off. if you didn't know any better, you would have thought the largest company laid an egg, one so sulfurous that it had to be rotten what did the stock do? how about a plunge from $167 to $155 a week later. most of the allegedly bullish
6:07 pm
analyst, sunk away rather than pounding the table apple is back today. briefly hit $180, all time high. was trading out of apple post-it worthy maybe if you were karen cramer she was harsher than i was the true post-it goes to the acknowledged of the group. i have known tony. he is a serious practitioner he is a man of rigor he is a man of wall street you may remember tony from 2015 when he told us apple's best days were behind us. or you read tony's article in the new york times i sure remember, you know why,
6:08 pm
the stock was at 94 bucks at the time and ceo tim cook came on "mad money" to argue the other side of the passenger. tony was precised when he downgraded the stock the rationale, the verdict is in the cycle is week. and q1 results were worst than many investors realized. apple is up since then tony has been dead right he has been dead right about cell phones. not about apple. the cell phone business keeps getting more zeros there is an article where your love with your iphone -- reminds me with cars
6:09 pm
apple created a beloved technological ecosystem second to none. the service revenue is as their stocks all cell at a traumatic premium. ridiculous ridiculously bloated with cash balance sheet. which is part of why truly brilliant people like tony end up making mistakes about the stock but maybe not the industry of cell phones bottom line. i'm going to ask you to not be too discouraged about today's meltdown look at what worked through the month. these stocks all bounced and bounced hard from the last market wide selloff we had i bet they will bounce again from the next wide market
6:10 pm
selloff whenever it happens. let's go to james in california. >> caller: hello, jim, i was building a position in wynn resort just before it had the latest disaster. what should i do now buy more, hold on to it or sell it >> sieteve wynn was one of the best ever. he is not there. so i have no edge whatsoever i now prefer mgm resort. man, these apples are good good rid dandance to february. crm salesforce reported tonight. don't miss my exclusive with

exciting not just banking, i am thrilled with some other european industrial companies, look at seemiens and look at abb i love the robots. and electric buses all of these companies are trying to focus on and connect with their customers the robots are a great example now, of course they are connected with the robots and know if a robot is going to fail einstein is a huge part of the story. send that service technician and make sure that robot gets fixed and abb can do that with
6:17 pm
salesforce >> there must be a lot of million dollar contracts. >> more than ever. >> fair enough lowe's looks like it is losing contract share which is a big ticket to home depot where the money has made you. >> craig is doing an amazing job as ceo what i love about home depot is they are focussed on their customer and we have been there with them. a partnership in the transfo transformation and they know who their customer is which not just the consumer, but also contractor with all the huge home growth going on but the idea that all these contractors are out there and they are more connected to the consumer and contractor and they brought an employee in as well to have an advisory in to have a stakeholder in their
6:18 pm
business everything with home depot is amazing. i can't believe their names. >> invisaline, maybe they need to be more digitalized. >> i love invisaline myself. >> you have been a vocal of late talking about the need to be careful for technology, both because of the fourth industrial revolution and also because of a consciousness that you have to recognize that you have responsibility facebook is not just a greyhound bus that carries everybody ed companies need to wake up that they play a role or the government is going to play the role for them >> the sad vancemeadvancement.
6:19 pm
it is going to take a strong hand and that is the ceos and these companies have to take responsibilities for the technology that they are building is it addictive, it this technology helpful or hurting their customers. this is something that every company and every ceo is going to have to do. as we build these great platforms and as every companies goes through their digital transformation, when it happens, you better pay attention to how this is coming together. >> the customer matters. if you are trying to get great gross matters, twitter, we can talk about, do they recognize that the person that matters and the products faith and truth matters that they may have a failed business model. >> every company has to decide if they are going to lead with
6:20 pm
value. their trust is highest value in salesforce when i am thinking about my leadership as a chrome if trust is not my highest value especially under the guise of new technology, then how am i leading? and everything has to ask that question, what is the most important thing to you if everything is important, nothing is important you know i believe that strongly what is the most important thing to you as ceo. and for us at salesforce it is trust. and customers that aren't leading with trust is going to pay the price. in san francisco, you will see companies where ceos aren't there anymore. >> you talked about uber, look, i want growth. sustainable growth these are people who get if they
6:21 pm
fwoori fwo are going to win in this world -- why >> there are three things you need for sustainable growth and number one is customer focus the second key thing you need for sustainable growth is a connection who is your community. who are your key stakeholders? your shareholders, your partners, your public schools, who is your community. what is your culture what are your values what is it like to be in your company? what does it feel like to be in your office or your events if you can put that together, customer, community, and customers, a willing success. >> will you be losing customers who don't fit your ethos. >> every ceo will have to decide are they going to fire their top sales executive because they did not match their values in the

field or something did not happen i went through that. quite a few years ago now. and that is a tough decision, it is a lot of sleepless nights it is a defining decision for every ceo when they can say, this is what we stands for these values our values don't change. our numbers are changing. >> we have been among executives who have questioned a notion that values lead to higher stock prices when i listen to you, i think values are perhaps the determinant of higher stock prices. >> i can't agree more. >> but it is ethereal, not what we have been taught. >> are you focused just on your shareholders or on your stakeholders, your stakeholders are your shareholders but your customers, your employees, your
6:23 pm

6:40 pm
absecured by the hideous nature of few hours of trading. last night, papa john's reported a quarter that was widely seen as disappointing by 9:00 a.m. this morning, the stock was down 5%. the stock actually took off after the market opened. closing up 2.5% of the day that was puzzling. how does the stock put on a magnificent rally. let me give you background the thing that you need to ntd about papa john's is this chain is benefitting from low expectations a stock that has been a total dog for over a year. even after today's move, papa john's stock is down 36% from
6:41 pm
all time highs in 2016 this thing has not run even before last night's earnings report this was a down and out stock. when they reported last halloween, the numbers were in line but the stock got slammed. then ceo blamed the nfl which the company had a sponsorship had a deal with this let me read you a snippet. by now resolving the current debacle, nfl leadership has hurt papa john's shareholders even though the decline could have negative sales. many critics were quick to point out many of the company's sub par sales had to do with the sub
6:42 pm
par pizza than who is standing and who is kneeling. maybe the fault wasn't with the nfl stars, it was with the pizza itself papa john himself announced he was stepping down. the stock fell another 4% on the news so not like everything was hunky-dory but you need to understand the stock had already been punished. let's go to the number papa john's posted a 5%. sales down 3.9 year after year yet the stock rebounded. the reason not just that they signed the sponsorship with 22 of the individual nfl teams, the reason is it took me by surprise but let me give you something that is not exactly crazy. this stock papa john's has gone
6:43 pm
from a growth stock to a value stock. in the old days, they used to trade for the best of breed dominoes now it is 19 times the guidance and that does represent value at least in this market papa john's has been voracious about buying stock, its own stock. why does it matter this? this is a small $2 billion company. buy back is enormous the third and most important maybe papa john's is having a domino dominoes moment. dominoes was a mess, plagued by problem. and then ceo patrick doyle showed humility. admitting that the pizza tasted like cardboard that is when you knew dominoes
6:44 pm
was about to get serious turning itself around. it went from $10 to 22 today pa papa john's finally showed humility quote we know our potential is greater than our results and we are taking significant steps to reinvigorate our record. he continued, quote, actions are under way to improve our brand proposition how we connect can our customers and how we operate in the unit level. embracing new media, bringing in a new pr firm. i think investors having maybe just maybe richie will do for papa johns that doyle did for dominoes the very successful parent of
6:45 pm
burger king. i don't like to speculate on take overs, but if richie can get the numbers moving in the right direction, it is a different story. however, i am going to need more evidence that richie can work turn around magic before i give you my blessing on this one and i think he has to spend to stay even technologically, he is pretty far behind to catch up to dominoes now you know how a company can report one of the lousiest quarters of 2018 and still see its stocks surge higher. the people who bought the stock of papa john's are focused on the future it is worth weeping an eye on. but too soon to pound the table.
6:46 pm
but too soon to pound the table. i am still loyal to tdominoes stay with me, mr. parker. table. i am still loyal to tdominoes when a critical patient is far from the hospital, the hospital must come to the patient. stay with me, mr. parker. the at&t network is helping first responders connect with medical teams in near real time... stay with me, mr. parker. ...saving time when it matters most. stay with me, mrs. parker. that's the power of and. and i recently had hi, ia heart attack. it changed my life. but i'm a survivor. after my heart attack, my doctor prescribed brilinta. it's for people who have been hospitalized for a heart attack. brilinta is taken with a low-dose aspirin. no more than 100 milligrams as it affects how well brilinta works.
6:47 pm
brilinta helps keep platelets from sticking together and forming a clot. in a clinical study, brilinta worked better than plavix. brilinta reduced the chance of having another heart attack... ...or dying from one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to your doctor, since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily, or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers, a history of bleeding in the brain, or severe liver problems. slow heart rhythm has been reported. tell your doctor about bleeding new or unexpected shortness of breath any planned surgery, and all medicines you take. if you recently had a heart attack, ask your doctor if brilinta is right for you. my heart is worth brilinta. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
