11:03 am
essentially the leading power or source in the country's economic light. not the private sector. barack obama regards the private sector as that essentially, a distraction. dagen: what has gone on with the food stamp program? the states have relaxed these assets and incomes. something the journal says the obama administration has encouraged. this is a way to expand the role of the federal government. >> let's add, as well, dagen, remember under the obama healthcare law, he expanded

medicaid. to do things like that and increase the level of food stamps that you will need more revenue. they are asking for higher levels of taxation. i am convinced that they are going to long-term ask for something like a permanent value long-term tax. they absolutely need a permanent higher revenue stream for the federal government. dagen: you are talking about higher revenue to fund future spending. >> absolutely. a larger level of government benefits, but to pay for it, somehow through the general population. they will find that one way or

11:06 am
global leadership. instead, barack obama is hunkered down here trying to order the domestic economy of the united states. it is poor execution of global leadership by the president of the united states at a time when it is really needed. dagen: dan, it is really great to see you. i encourage everyone to read your column. you really touched on world war i. it scared me. thank you. there is a new leading role on wall street. tony dwyer is the chief equity strategist to tell us about it. see not everyone keeps hoping

11:36 am
you get concerned about another asset bubble. you know you never increase your interest rate without increasing your risk. that is a real concern. dagen: not funny. >> there is the international scene. this thing in cyprus is very disconcerting. and many, they reduced the projected growth 2.3%. if germany starts slowing down, where will the money come from to bailout cyprus and greece? dagen: do not look at us. that is all i have to say.

12:01 pm
s&p up 10%, and nasdaq up 8%. we've seen the runup here, and on the dow, most of the dow components in the green a short time ago, checking 25 of the 30 names in the green. as i look at the big board, the drug index is the best of the bunch, and retail index pulls back, and retail pulling back. that's interesting to watch. the fear index to the downside. what's interesting is the reversal in the dollar. we've seen a very strong dollar. we saw the euro at four month lows, lows not seen since really november 21st. today, a different picture, gaining momentum, and divergence in oil and gold. gomed, a safe haven, also, pulling back. back to you. dennis: cypress crisis, who cares. thank you, nicole. cheryl: the greek speaks,ny could on the floor, and let's bring in somebody to talk about the s&p. s&p capital iq chief equity strategist is here, and s&p just
12:02 pm
raising their s&p target for the next 12 month, and you went from 1550 up to 1670, a big boost. 7% boost. what's the thinking here? >> hey, cheryl, our feeling is that, well, first off, we establishedded the earlier target back in november, passage of time, but, also, i think the trajectory of the low flying recovery has been improving, and at the same time, the market has been willing to pay a little bit higher future earnings right now, at a multiple of 15, a pe ratio of 15, interestingly enough still trading at a discount of 15% on a trailing basis over the past quarter century, and is also trading at a discount to the average since the secular bear market started. really, it's just looking towards earnings over the coming 12-month period, applying what we field to be a fair, multiple
12:03 pm
number and we have 1670. cheryl: s&p is predicting volatility, but we talk about that a lot and what the market does, and you compare gdp. have to look at growth in the country and compare that to s&p. that's where you get the real story. talk about it. >> well, i was traveling, talking to clients last week, and a lot of times they asked, sam, how could we end up with rising earnings and an expanding pe multiple looking at below average growth in the u.s. economy? i remind investors they are anticipators, not looking to current growth, but where growth will be a year from now, and standard and poors economics believes we're looking at a much stronger earnings and growth environment with our u.s. economy next year than this year. also, we realize that because about 50% of revenues for the
12:04 pm
s&p come from overseas operations, and even though we're only expecting a sub 3% growth in the gdp this year, ihs global insight is expecting a more than 5% growth in emerging markets for 2013 -- cheryl: sam, that's a divergence then. what you are saying here, looked at specific charts, ten years, the s&p versus gdp in this country, but you say, really, the story overseas is what's going to give the s&p the growth per perspective, not so uch u.s.gdp growth, but emerging markets, saying 46% of the s&p's gains from emerging markets, and it used to be, what, 30%? 32%, i believe? >> international revenues for the s&p 500, they are hard to quantity my because companies don't like to give out their favorite fishing holes so because it does not require them to do that, they sort of hint at where they are getting most of the revenues and earnings.
12:05 pm
for up to 50%, 46% to 50% aren't coming from overseas, and, obviously, the greatest growth expectations in gdp is expected to come from the emerging markets so a lot of u.s. companies are going to be focusing on those higher growth areas, so while the u.s. is likely to keep us down in terms of what the earnings could have been, they are better because of the international exposure. cheryl: sam, closing out the first quarter of 2013, the trading ending, let's look at the sectors that have been the best performers, and the sectors that we talked about, consumer staples, more than 13% gain today. health care, again, more than 13% year to date gain, and financials, are those the sectors, in your mind, that continue to perform in the s&p? >> i think the defensive leaning is because retail investors are reluctantly getting back in, and
12:06 pm
what they say if we get back in because the fed is to the paying me anything, i want a dividend yield, and, also, i don't want to be buying in and fall over the cliff so i'd rather gravitate towards the defensive areas with less volatility. i think that we do have some cyclical growth in the months ahead because the u.s. and international economies will be seeing an improvement in their economic growth trajectories. cheryl: sam, good to talk to you, especially op -- on a day like today with the s&p breaking and hopefully closing above the october 2007 level. sam, thank you. >> thanks k cheryl. ♪ dennis: massive round of cyberattacks aimed at a swiss antispam group, the largest denial of service, and they will be in britain, germany, and

netherlands, and sites were slowed down, but no fallout occurred from the online battle now which is said to be over. trend micro's chief technology officer, raymond -- i forgot how to pronounce that last name, says it's a concern for the on line world. give a listen. >> so, actually, of course, we look at this attack, and we don't know if it's cyber doing their tech. it's definitely a botnet, and so we definite lee see a current slow down in the european internet, but it's affabling internet traffic globally because there are not too many receiverrers. it's a large scale of tech, and they have a problem with it, but it's affecting us all, and that's bad. dennis: people think u.s. government and businesses are, if anything, lax on the cyber threat, but what do you think? a couple weeks ago, the obama administration called out china
12:08 pm
as a big cyber criminal, basically, a report came out citing a thousand attacks on over a hundred u.s. companies, but you say there's actually a bigger threat than the chinese, who is it? >> russia or former russia, the problem is they started cybercrime in 2003. they perfect the it. we see attacks from china highly visible, but be more concerned regarding attacks not visible and fairly sophisticated, and for this, you use eastern european -- and some are state sponsored. dennis: the sate, rather than using employees in russia, hire these professional crooks to do the hacking for them, you're saying? >> that's absolutely correct. you know, you have a pool of cyber criminals, and how often do you see cyber criminals if in russia?
12:09 pm
it normally never happens because it seems these guys you know, offer a certain service, and for this, they get protection. dennis: the chinese were call out for a thousand attacks all traited to basically the doorstep of the people's liberation army of china, but you basically told our producers that that's a clear sign chinese don't know what they are doing, that they can be found easily, explain. >> it's strange. you normally don't really worry on what you do, you use various proxies, try everything to hide your traces. or you hire cybercriminals to do the work for you, electronic cyber espionage. it's a big surprise somebody openly, you know, attacks u.s. companies and could be traced back easily. it's confusing, maybe, you know, they are not well trained. dennis: the chinese may have been framed. when the chinese and russians hack into u.s. companies, do you think they have the same agenda? china is interested in corporate espionage, looking for trade

secrets and designs, but i wonder whether the russians think militarily? take down our missile defense system or something. >> the russians are doing exactly the same. they tried to get information, though we don't see droughtive attacks or see attempts to destroy infrastructure out of china, out of russia. it's information gathering, and electronic, and the home country germany is one of the most high-tech countries because we create interproperty, and we see the attacks from china as well as out of russia. dennis: so what do we need to do to stop this? it's weird that all of this tech gear was shipped out without adequate protection anyway, but what should we do? are we doing enough? >> we are definitely not doing enough. we need a better public sector, private company partnership where we all work together to combat this, and i think we really have to force the isps to deliver clean water.
12:11 pm
there are ways to create content, but the isps don't have a financial interest doing it. maybe they need to be forced. some legislations are enforcing it now. >> good stuff here. cheryl: it was. the accent made that interview. the biggest cyber attack to date, but what's surprising that little is needed to carry out an attack of these size. are the large scale attacks the future of hacking? the ceo of trust joins melissa and adam at 1 # p.m. eastern time today. okay. it came down to, well, today. we are live in cypress as banks reopen, and angry citizens worried about their future take to the streets to protest the bailout. >> as if there were not enough pain already at the pump, the imf wants higher taxes on gasoline. the reasons why and what it costs you, next. as we do every day at this time, let's take a look at oil. ♪ ♪

12:32 pm
duncan hiens, and bird's eye. it's a winning day for the ipo. back to you. dennis: all right, thank you, nicole. cheryl: well, blackberry surprising wall street eking out a profit in the fourth quarter, but subscribers down 3 million. joining us now is sap president of global solutions, and you know, with this drop, do you think this change will change the ongoing mobile device war? you can't talk earnings, but the fact there is pressure on subscribers at blackberry. >> i think, you know, as you look at the mobile market, it's moving incredibly fast. blackberry's a partner of ours, but the market is bigger than blackberry now. we're a company, 65,000 employees, we got ipads and tablets to about 25,000 of them, and we've got 45,000 combination of phone divergence vees, ipads, galaxies r and blackberry. the world is heterogeneous where
12:33 pm
combination of android and blackberry exists, and we have to secure devices and deliver killer applications to them. cheryl: security is an issue with this. and blackberry a partier with sap, and you are the world's largest by far. you have 50,000 employees worldwide, and with employees on, as you mentioned, thousands sitting on blackberries, but more using iphones. you got employees that are using samsung. when you look at the sap land scion and issue of security, is blackberry still the top, i guess, security hand held maker for business? >> yeah, i think as you look at the landscape, certainly done a good job with security and continue to embrace work done, but in a heterogeneous world, we have to focus on software solutions that could layer security whether it's running on a blackberry, iphone, or
12:34 pm
android. that's the focus. the way you have antivirus and security for a laptop, you have bring your own device, consumers bring devices in the enterprise, important that those devices are secure, provisioned appropriately because it just takes one bad guy to do bad things, and you can containerize your life where the private life, you have photos, playing angry birds, separated from the enterprise life where they ensure data does not work out of the devices. cheryl: employees, of course, walking around, whether they walk around with an iphone or a blackberry of any major corporation in the world, obvious they play angry birds and check the weather. maybe i'm guilty of that. the question is with the applications that are coming into the iphones and blackberry, is that a concern, security concern, productivity
12:35 pm
concern for business? >> i think both of those are considerations, and i think as people, the cios focused on solutions. we have to make those devices secure, and that's the focus. we looked at ways by which encryptions and data rests on this device is secure to the highest standards in which the federal government wants to work and international trading works in various different governments, standards are different, and all of this requires a level of software security that we're committed to and building for the clients, and it is a heterogeneous world. cheryl: talk about global markets for a moment because if you're in japan, the samsung mobile devices are popular and user friendly, not just for consumers, but businesses there. you move into the united states, blackberry has a dominant market share in the united states that
12:36 pm
may be changing, and europe is a whole different operating system, if you will, as far as the networks that are there. do you see a moment in the next five years where we have more continue knewty with regards to networks and more continue newty with regards to mobile devices where everyone on the same playing field? >> there's going to be diversity, a different diversity from the laptop with dominant market share of windows, in the u.s. market, you pointed out, iphones taking share in the market, and in the country i grew up in india, there's android devices. they are not strong there, and china and japan has a different market. we are here with the hit trough genius land scape to stay. android and an droids in the developed countries. it's important as companies we work with these device operating systems to ensure they have the highest level of security. samsung's been doing that, for example, with initiatives, and
12:37 pm
ios does that addressing this in areas like the federal sector, and, also, of course, blackberry had a history of this for a long time. >> it is a reason that sap has a $10 billion market cap, and you are a strong voice in this. thank you very much from sap. good to have you. >> cheryl, always a pleasure. thank you for having me on the show. dennis: on the road to the stanley hotel. steven king's inspiration for "the shining," soup euros scary and profitable. cheryl: boys of summer return next week, and up in the west coast minute, how the san fransisco giants turn the at&t park into the first media center for baseball. going to break, though, look at the ten-year treasury against global investors in the past two weeks, and they are flying into that safety of the u.s. treasury. ♪ we went out and asked people a simple question: how old is the oldest person you've known?
12:38 pm
we gave people a sticker and had them show us. we learned a lot of us have known someone who's lived well into their 90s. and that's a great thing. but even though we're living longer, one thing that hasn't changed: the official retirement age. ♪ the question is how do you make sure you have the money you need to enjoy allf these years. ♪
12:39 pm

12:42 pm
>> business has been amazing. we're going to do about 85,000 tours this year, bringing in 350,000 people coming through the hotel just for a ghost hunt tour or adventure. dennis: how much extra revenue? >> around a million dollars. dennis: that's good. now, do things in the hotel really happen ghost-wise? i'm thinking if they ever succeeded in finding a ghost, that would be terrifying. >> they -- we have something happen pretty much every day at the hotel. i had an experience just this past week with a lady who was on a ghost tour, and brought her down and said, mr. benton, she needs to see you in the lobby, there's an amazing. i go over, and meet the guest, and we never touch guests in the hotel industry, but she was shaking so much that i grabbed her hands, and i said, you know, let's get water, and we sat for 10-15 minutes, and i said to her, she was clutching her iphone. i said, tell me what floor you
12:43 pm
were on when you had the experience. she said the fourth floor. you have a picture of the girl you want to show me. she showed me the camera, and the girl, you can see through her and see her ring lets in the hair and dress, and then the part you saw through was right to the wall behind it, and i said, so you paid $20 to go into the ghost tour, and you got a ghost. we got her laughing and turned around about the situation. it was great. dennis: she caught it on the iphone? that's got to show up in a new apple ad. have guests asked for refunds when they don't find a ghost or have a guest have a heart attack after they found a ghost? >> we never had a guest ask for a refund because they didn't find the ghost, but we never had a heart attack either because they didn't find a ghost or they did see a ghost, but we do have emotional moments. we had two in october that were doing a late night ghost hunt, and they were in the concert hall, and we have a room there called lucy's room, and you take
12:44 pm
lucy a cookie, and she lets you come into the room, and on two tours on the same evening, we had two guests pass out in the room. the local estes park ambulance and hospital were not happy that day. dennis: a placebo effect, some overly emotional people dying for something to happen make something happen, but it's great marketing on your park for the hotel. you had various tv shows and movies there, you have "ghost hunters," and "ghost at ventures," and "dumb and dumber," that strays from the ghost brand. >> "dumb and dumber" was a stretch for the ghost brand, but we're also about the history and all the other fun things we do at the hotel. we have a great film festival coming up. we are doing a horror film festival may 2 through the 5th at the hotel, the stanley film festival, it's fun as well.

12:54 pm
-- mayonnaise at walmart, and the idea was to give you a discount on your item purchased there to cover the cost of the gas. they spit ball this, brainstorm it, it's a idea out there. the 0*er idea is how do you use the 3,000 super centers as distribution sites for walmart's online web sales. you know, amazon's 61 billion in sales, watt mart 9 billion in sales, trying to ramp up online. dennis: that for online sales 37 >> this is a fraction just for this year, and they talk about having lockers october their stores because, you know, there's a lot of theft of products on the doorsteps, so, in other words, how do you use the 3,000 supercenters for your web strategy? they are trying to go up against google, amazon, and same-day delivery, test driving it in five cities too. so, you know, walmart is pushing here to get more money in the door from online sales. >> one of the things we see with
12:55 pm
the big retailers now is price matching, concerned about amazon and journaled cut, they come to the table. best buy is going that now. that's there strategy. is that something across the board? >> you know, well, they are always to the lowest price out there, and showrooming. dennis: i don't know that i want my neighbor who i barely say hello to delivering my product. >> they call it the use of crowd sourcing, giving that fancy participants name to it. you have to have cargo insurance and perm liability insurance to deliver packages for any company. dennis: never happens. cheryl: liz, thank you very much. bottom line of course. the cyber threat, fallout from the massive on line blitz slowed the internet coming up. dennis: red or blue, what color your state means for your path to prosperity. adam and me melissa francis are
