>> good morning, "varney & company" viewers. today is friday, march 15th and while it's the same story from lawmakers in washington, gridlock on the budget. we've got two different visions of the way the country should be. the main theme from the democrats, tax the rich and lawmakers of course can't get any kind of deal done. if congress wants a lesson on popularity, they have to look
9:26 am
overseas, after pushing for higher taxes on the wealthy and more entitlements for everyone else, socialist president francois hollande's popularity has plunged. tom sullivan, a spectacular fall from grace. >> it is, but the thing misreported about france and all of europe is that they're, oh, the economy is not doing so well. economy is because of austerity and i went in and i looked, for example, italy's austerity plan and looking for the spending difficulties, there weren't any. there were only tax increases and that's their idea and the left media's eyed of what austerity is, so, here you've got austerity into the face of the french citizens and you know what, this isn't working. >> i've got to tell you, his popularity is crashing and so is president obama's because people are starting to see beyond the headlines, the at least beyond the media. by the way, guys, it's vice day on fox business, sex, drugs and rock and roll and cover the deadly sins so you're not going to change the channel.

>> well, we're just 30 seconds from the opening bell. and scott is at the cme. here is the the thing, the dow finished higher for ten straight days and we know a pullback is coming soon and i want to know how severe the pullback is going to be? >> i think the pullback is going
9:32 am
to be overrated and i think the rest of the street is waiting for something like 5%, but they're not going to get it because there's so much dry powder out there still. if you get another, say, 1 or 2% i think you're going to see people jump on it. >> it's interesting, because everyone from bulls to bears are waiting for the pullback and a lot of people telling me when he we pullback i'm going to jump in. i feel like people are missing the train and every time we get the scenario it's going to feed on itself, right? >> right. it's going to make the pullbacks if we have one are muted. we'll be down a few days in a row, but at the end of the day because there's so much capital that needs to be deployed. something that should have been 5%, be 2%. charles: the bell has rung and we've been open for 25 seconds. interestingly enough this has been the trend almost every day, we look at the down side and find a way to rebound and scott, it's so funny because what we're talking about playing out over a few days the market pulling back
9:33 am
and seems to play out intraday every day and then everyone jumps back on. >> right now in this situation where we've got end of quarter and end of month coming the end of march so it's going to get more interesting. when most things we're going to peel off equity and see bonds break, we might see these positions further taken to where they need to be going. i think come the end of the month you'll still see an equity rally and bonds hold in there. >> and scott, thanks a lot. happy trading, man. >> all right, thanks. >> boeing says its grounded 787 dreamliner will resume commercial flights within weeks and it hasn't found out what caused the two planes in january. >> go to the boeing shares, which year to date held on beautifully and today up over 12% year to date and they've made it through this pr nightmare. and trying to get to 787 back up and flying, so, they're going be to be doing some limited test flights with two 787's that will have prototype components of the
9:34 am
new battery system. i guess, who needs to find out what's wrong with the old battery? let's make a darn new one. i don't know, i don't know the intricate part of it, but the f.a.a., obviously, now overlooking this as well. and the ideal start is to get this thing up and flying again. it looks like they're certainly on the way to doing so. charles: i've got to tell you it's a wonderful thing to only have one global competitor, you can make a lot of mistakes and still have a hot stock. talk to you later, nicole. as the senate panel slams j.p. morgan for a loss last year and found that they ignored losses and hid, that's right, hid. and we bailed out the banks and now gotten all of this money from everyone watching the show and now that they're flush, what are they doing with it? they're not giving it back to us, not giving us loans. >> i was the first guy to say i was against tarp. tarp never worked and i was against bank bailouts, but at
9:35 am
the same time they paid their bill. leave them alone, let them run their business, but i still don't like the fact that they're bigger than they were before. i think the risk is higher today than it was back in 2008. charles: i would leave them alone except i think they're going to come back and touch my wallet again. if we could have this relationship where didn't ever have to bail them out again, i wouldn't judge them. i think that everyone has a right to judge them, not really them. i'm making a mistake, we have to judge the government for letting this happen. americans shouldn't have had to bail out the bank, but now that it does exist, where do the banks have an obligation to help the public out? because, you know, listen, they're lavishing themselves of billions of dollars right now, billions. >> absolutely and the government is helping the problem and they're the get away driver. i'm take charlie gasparino's solution to this, unless you're a certain size, we're not going to give you fdic insurance and let the marketplace decide if
9:36 am
they'll have money with the banks. charles: another headache for carnival cruise line. affecting the sailing speed of the force, cancellation and stopped at the grand cayman islands and here we are again, carnival cruise lines. >> oh, my goodness, we went from the triumph, to the dream, and now, to the legends. they sound like great names and so dreamy and wonderful, you just want to be there in the sun. maybe not. this is the third time in about two months that carnival is now plagued by yet another problem. so you're talking now about the carnival legend, as you noted, heading back to port in tampa. it will not be making the scheduled caribbean stop. instead, it's going slow poke pace, 14 miles per hour back to port. and they are offering the big rebate of $100 credit, 50% off on your next trip. i mean, they're doing the best they can, obviously, keeping the passengers safe and getting you
9:37 am
back, but we know just a few days ago, they had to fly the passengers back to st. maarten, they couldn't come up to florida with the ship and they had to wait and fix the problems and the stock is down over 5% this morning. charles: it's interesting, we have the debate, will it stop people from taking the cruise and will the debate be more, will they stop taking carnival cruise? >> and i was reading something and thought people would want a bargain and get on board and i saw that that cruise bookings are down. charles: yeah, well-- >> the latest reports. charles: only logical. thanks a lot, we'll be back. okay, samsung, we talked about this a lot yesterday unveiled its new galaxy s-4, that was last night. radio city music hall and a lot of hype and here with the phone, mark, first of all, is it the iphone killer? >> i think for a lot of android fans it definitely is. charles: really? >> it's a five inch display and people care about the size of the screen and the fact that you're getting that, full hd and
9:38 am
thinner and lighter than the s-3 was, it's about 4.6 ounces, .3 inches thin, it's on the plasty side so some people are complaining about that, but i prefer having something with a big screen and nice and thin. >> and hold my iphone next to that, see the difference? there's a difference in the whole display. >> and talking about some of the killer issues-- >> the bells and whistles. the thing i'm hearing, the thing that follows your eyes. >> right. >> this is amazing. >> and that's the idea, right? we want to get people excited about upgrading the phones they have. charles: how does it work, it scrolls for me, i look away and it pauses. >> the two different way the eye part works, smart scroll, looking at the screen and tilt the device up or down, it will go in whatever direction i want, almost like, if you only have one hand free like on sub way o
9:39 am
something like that, read an article while one hand on the pole. it's kind of cool. the other thing, if you're watching a video, you start playing back a video, you can look at the video, look away and it will pause automatically, called smart pause, i'll start playing the video, i'll look away, and come back and you see how the playback started up again? those are just a couple of the things they're trying to get people excited about innovation inside smart phones. charles: i think it's fantastic. >> my problem with it, i've got my iphone sitting here and i've invested a fair amount of money in the apps. if these apps would be universal i would jump in a minute. >> and i think that's what google is trying to do with the app store, neck and neck with the iphone, granted the iphone gets a lot of the coolest apps first like flip board and others, but see the scale that android and partners have, they're bringing apps over, especially the free ones and competing with apple on content
9:40 am
with the new samsung hub store so it's going to combine, music, books, videos. if i'm going to be nervous, it's not just app, it's google, because they're attacking google in terms of their eco system. charles: you went to the event last night. did it feel like an event and live up to the hype. >> it felt much bigger for better or worse. over the top, the musical numbers. charles: were the rockettes there? >> they were not there. charles: they were not. >> they tried to sprinkle in humor and untraditional launch, but the fact that they have the marketing muscle to basically rent out times square to rent out a property that big, i think it tells you how much marketing muscle they have. charles: before i let you go, how come they let you walk away with the phone? >> samsung is here and watching it closely and i have to give it-- >> they're he in the building. >> yes. charles: in the green room. [laughter] i've got to tell you i'm super-duper impressed, i've never bought an iphone, but
9:41 am
thinking about the samsung, and i think-- >> what have you been doing? are you stuck with the blackberry? >> i'm still with rotary, buddy. guys, thanks a lot. if you want real stimulus, all you have to do is make a new taco, that's right, wait until you hear how much jobs taco bell created with the new dorito loco taco, i love the tacos, coming up in a few minutes. right now 7 early movers, take a look the medical, they have different things, medical supplies, upscale for women and pretty good earnings and cash flow, solid guidance and wall street kind of likes the number. the stock is up this morning. freeport mcmoran, an upgrade from goldman sachs. and wall street is start to go warm up. and thinks that copper is coming back, that would be a great, great sign for the global economy. arm holdings, usually trades in tandem with apple. apple under pressure, but not this stock. buy from hold at jeffries, and it's up 100% already from the

52-week low. akamai, the ceo bought 30,000 shares, over a million bucks worth. people love it when the ceo puts his money where his mouth is. sony, you know, sony lost in the conversation, but not the stock. by the way last four quarters missed concensus by 700%. 166%, 200% and 700%, but the stock has been moving higher. bank of america, what can you say, 5 billion buyback, regular stock, 5.5 billion in preferred stock, the stock is going up. and finally, panel, a play on the galaxy here, and in fact, goldman says this is a play on the galaxy s-4, rather and see the stock is making an impressive move so far. there you have it, your 7 early movers. >> let's check on the big board, we open sloppy today and down 40 points, not a lot going on and you could have friday selling. some people maybe taking profits and last hour trading always important. also let's check on the price of oil right now. oil is sort of quiet because the stock market, but not the price.

that are around this, so consumption devices and growing equipment and point of sales systems and insurance, and all of that. so, that's-- >> and growing is, growing devices and smoking devices. >> correct. charles: you mean like a bong? >> or things like vaporizers that help reduce-- >> so these investments, up to $50,000, how does it work out with the payment. how are people rewarded? in other words, are people envisioning themselves okay, we're going to replace the drug dealer and the mercedes benz, that would be me, but how does it actually work? >> for most investors it's just like any other early industry, the real plays are in private companies who are just getting started and early stage companieses looking to raise $250,000 or a million dollars. what we have is sort of like a shark tank, you've seen shark tank, the investors in the companies pitch and all over the place and different ways people are getting involved in the the

10:07 am
it was not done for political reasons. if it had, we never would have had healthcare reform. of course he is a politician. you do not become president of the united states can't you do not become a senator without being a politician. everything done in washington is with an eye towards the pole. charles: has he been political to a fault? he certainly overplayed with sequestration. you know what, if we do not meet this, life will be dramatically different for america the day after sequestration. >> the d.c. press corps and national press corps kind of joked about this, local stations are doing -- charles: he went to these little
