will talk about what those issues are. and we have optional or, a good friend of ours show saying he is most worried about a bubble in u.s. stocks, stock market bubble. we have the amazon drone's, they did indeed take twitter by storm last night, we will get into it. and why are all looks the most searched item on google? dagen, thank goodness, has thoughts on that. that and more this hour of "markets now." don't give away those thoughts now. dagen: very disturbing man who lives in my building, doesn't seem to have a job, just smokes incessantly. and he wears uggs. which says i have no job.
and football, we will talk some football, baby. connell: auburn, alabama. dagen: have to hate alabama. connell: all that coming up. the market, drones, you name it. dagen: can be discussed nicole petallides for this with what is moving today, nicole. nicole: eight straight gains. we are looking at the dow in particular, that has been up over 3%. 16,060, so it is down 26 points. the nasdaq and the ssp have up arrows barely squeezing out some gains at the moment. we got in some data which helped to trim the losses, but the trading range remains very narrow. in a 55 points, but wanted to take a look quickly at some names hitting 52-week highs.
names you know including microsoft, nike and american express. nike the best performer of the three up about 60%, but as regards the holidays is fun to look at some of these movers and some making new highs. connell: the obama administration say it met its goal of a healthcare.gov work for the majority of users, but the problem is some of these insurance companies and states are looking for alternatives. dagen: it seems to work on the front end but not on the back end like getting your information to the insurance company will give you the insurance. more on this developing story. >> you got it. health insurance officials say that systems still have problems despite report from officials yesterday touting big improvements, hhs send the tech experts fixed 400 software bugs
adding 12 huge servers to help handle the traffic last friday. with this is a website can handle 50,000 simultaneous users per hour were 800,000 users per day. they say the website is up and now more than 90% of the time compared 40% earlier in november. and all of this means the administration has met its goal of making the site work the vast majority of users. >> the bottom line, healthcare.gov on december 1 is night and day from where it was on now to be clear, they likely will be times even with this increase capacity increase capacity will not be sufficient to handle peak demands. >> health insurance companies in the system's ability to verify user identity and accurately transmit enrollment data to them the so-called 834 data is not
functioning properly many, many customers still will not be able to enroll and get insurance. the president of america's health insurance plans said in a statement the significant back end issues must also be resolved to measure coverage can begin on january 1, 2014. the ongoing problems with processing enrollment files needs to be fixed. the "wall street journal" reports the problems have got some insurers that at least one state working on ways to bypass the federal system to enroll customers directly. dagen: thank you so much for that report in. lesbian former white house chief of staff. i know you are happy this is not on your shoulders. it is not funny, but we have less than a month left for people to sign up for insurance, many people have lost their
insurance, they could be left without coverage, could the white house or is the white house shaking in its boots? >> first of all i hope they're paying attention to what is happening in the real world. this is not just about a website, but the public understanding what is happening. they don't know what to do. they are frustrated, and the white house has bigger problems than just does the website work. i'm glad it is working better than it was before. there is a lot that needs to be done, and i am worried they're going to put middle-class americans in a position where they're all confused as the deadline happens overnight. and then people will be troubled by it. where do i go, what do i do. they are not empathetic with the challenges of real americans and i want them to show some empathy and give a little more time for people to comply with this very
confusing law. dagen: this is going to fall on the shoulders of those in the white house and the administration. i have people that left, right, in the middle, friends, people i know, acquaintances calling me on the phone, they have lost their insurance, they are trying to sign up, they can't, they don't know what to do. does the white house need to be communicating with them more directly, and what will they do for those people who are uninsured come january 2? >> that is the problem. i don't want the white house to be disconnected with what is happening in the marketplace. what is happening in the world. it is about lives being impacted, young men and women who wants to do the right thing but they don't know what to do and families losing insurance, businesses that don't know what it will mean for them down the road. this is bigger than this week or next week, it is a problem of
confidence that don't think the president has done a lot to earn back the good word that he should be giving. do people still trust him? i don't think they do. that is a presence problems speaking with the truth has been addressed. dagen: they're kind of stuck because you can't go out and talk about something that isn't yet fixed. if you are a politician you don't want to highlight where there are still holes in the system, it is almost unattainable situation for them. >> usually wants to manage expectations. they did not manage expectations well. i don't think they tried to manage expectations in a limited way on this website right now, and maybe they are meeting expectations. if you compare to the private sector, it is woefully in inadequate. i'm talking about affectations of insurance.
witty million americans go to get insurance, to the gets to keep the insurers they want to have when the president said it would be able to, can i keep their doctor when they were told they would be able to keep their doctor, and why does the deadline need to be when it is, why can't you extended? he has a lot on his plate. that goes with the job of being president. but be up front with the american people and let them know the challenges. try to help understand other people don't know what is happening. manage those expectations. dagen: thank you so much, i hope your holidays great. be well. connell: let's go to our guests now. he is most worried about a bubble in the u.s. stock market. joined from minneapolis with a senior portfolio manager overseeing 4 billion. and people do these interviews
where people like me try to pin them down and say is there a bubble here, a bubble there? last time he was on talk real estate mentioned he was worried about san francisco, vegas, targets that have run up. he says the boom in the u.s. stock market makes me most worried. is it your area of expertise, the bond market or someplace else? >> he is write right to point oe exuberance in the equity market. we have seen that even in the bond market in terms of how to have been moving around this year. we have not seen a great rotation, per se out of bonds into stocks. resident rotation into bond sectors that are more correlated with the equity market's we have seen inflows into sectors like high-yield bank loans and corporate bonds and from interest-rate sensitive sectors. the risk that poses is investors are essentially taking out the traditional shock absorbers in their portfolio.
connell: we always try to categorize the potential bubbles in one area of the financial market where in reality these things are intertwined. if something were to go wrong, maybe there is a trigger but probably affects all of the markets. how do you see this playing out, are you in the bubble bandwagon is such a thing exists, or is it getting overdone right now? >> it may be overdone. the fundamentals in the economy justify the equity and well. it is hard to correlate with the sluggish growth we continue to see. outside of that the asset purchases by the fed and aggressive monetary policy we have seen serves the purpose of inflating risk premiums and essentially causing them to tighten places they wouldn't otherwise be. i don't think that is just an equity or fixed income issue. all sectors will be affected if that begins to unwind.
connell: one of the big stories no doubt it's going to be one type of federal reserve will generate yellen oversee and willie federal reserve as to this risk or take away from it. what is your view? >> from a market perspective it is all about expectations, and the expectations are already in the price of fed is going to taper. we think the fed essentially already tapered this summer, so if you look back to announcements when the fed announced aggressive asset purchases, interest rates began to rise after that announcement. we would not be surprised to see riverreverse happen as the fed announces tapering of quantitative easing in the next couple of meetings. connell: we will have bob shiller back and ask if there is a bubble. thank you for coming on. >> thank you. dagen: showing off the future of package delivery. drones.
connell: will talk about that coming up. now fast food workers across the country set to protest over the minimum wage. we will talk about that big economic issue. dagen: and who are the biggest self getters? women or men? you know the answer already. take a look at oil as we go to break. in today's markets, a lot can happen in a second. with fidelity's guaranteed one-second trade execution, we route your order to up to 75 market centers

connell: are you into this cyber monday? dagen: full online shopping. connell: we are going to look at some of the online retailers to see how stocks are doing. in reaction to the commentary. nicole: everybody gets online, there are so many deals day in and day out. we have to focus on these guys, ebay and up arrow.
today is cyber monday, the famous day were everybody goes online to get the best deals. are you shopping right now? national retail federation predicting 131 million americans shopping online today, and that actually beats last year. over the shopping holiday weekend you didn't see the brick-and-mortar stores doing as well as anticipated on the contrary, it is all about shopping online. amazon hit a new high $399, but you can see overall the group is mixed. connell: let's pick up on amazon because a lot of buzz about that story after i'm 60 minutes. the record high earlier on cyber monday. but really the story on "60 minutes" last night, the ceo rolling out what he sees as the future of delivery. the unmanned drones fly around with whatever you ordered on
amazon. taking packages to your doorstep using gps saying it is technology that is still years away. here it is. >> this think that lenin somebody's head walking around their neighborhood. don't why am i to this is around the corner. this is years of additional work. i am an optimist, not copy before 2015 because that is the earliest we could get the rules from the faa. my guess is that is optimistic. connell: the other thing they talk about was the cloud computing amazon is investing so much in. even the cia. but as i said earlier, twitter was buzzing like crazy as he and she was going on. a lot of people, commercial for amazon, not exactly hard-hitting, but it is cool the matter how you at it. dagen: their use now, do aerial
vision of properties. the uses are potentially limitless and aren't we happy there is a visionary or many visionaries who still live and work? connell: did a story using a lot of these drones to transport medicine in those type of things to places it is hard to get. this is kind of cool the ad dagen: i love rich men with big brains. connell: thank you very much. it is just a money issue. with all the deals and bargains it is no secret shoppers are probably throwing in a gift or two for themselves. more than half of holiday shoppers claim to spend a gift on themselves on average. according to a survey when it comes to these self gifting practices, men are the secret shoppers. men are 43% more likely than
women to hide the gift to themselves. one heart 30% are likely to claim it is from somebody else and 118% more likely to create an emergency friend rather than on up to the purchase. connell: they don't want to admit they actually bought a gift for themselves. dagen: waited that long more come from? dagen: i don't know, my friend, phil, gave it to me. connell: this debate going on around the country about minimum wage again because of the fast food stories. dagen: the stock hits an all-time high, and shipping more packages today than ever in its history. every day we're working to be an even better company -

due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat, not caused by a heart valve problem. at first, i took warfarin, but i wondered, "could i up my game?" my doctor told me about eliquis. and three important reasons to take eliquis instead. one, in a clinical trial, eliquis was proven to reduce the risk of stroke better than warfarin. two, eliquis had less major bleeding than warfarin. and three... unlike warfarin, there's no routine blood testing. [ male announcer ] don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serio and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis ifyou have an artificial heart valve abrmal bleing. while taking eliquis, yomay bruise more easily and it m take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i've got three important reasons to up my game with eliquis.

on that, and this crazy weekend of football making for big tv ratings and more on the gridiron drama, and there's plenty of it coming up in just a few minutes. dagen: just keeps getting better. disney's frozen, lions gate both broke box office records. hunger games came in number one, but they still topped the previous record setter over the thanksgiving weekend. nicole is at the new york stock exchange with more on these stocks. nicole? >> reporter: let's take a look at the stocks and talk about the movies. looking at both lions gate and disney, disney had the number two and three spots over the five days, right? lions gate right now up 2.7%. walt disney up almost 50 cents at $71, and both are real winners year to date. so the hunger games catching fire and also disney's frozen broke records, both surpassed what was raked in by harry potter and the sorer iser's
stone. so this is the second week of catching fire, and it collected over $110 million. cumulatively over the two weeks together, nearly $300 million. and frozen also did particularly well. a lot of females in the audience because it does have female character protagonist, so that's something we watch as well, and thor took the third spot. back to you. connell: nicole, this thursday organizers of the movement, fast food workers are planning strikes in 100 cities, so steve moore joins us to talk about really one of the older economic debates. it's just new because it's happening this week with. you go back, i mean, it's one of the things i can remember from high school economics, should the minimum wage go up. and we know both sides, i think i even know where you stand on it, so let me ask, steve, this question: is there ever a scenario where it makes economic sense to raise the minimum wage,
and if so, how would you figure that out? >> great to be with you, and i'm a little older than you are, and i remember the debate going back to high school as well. look, my view is i'm never more raising the minimum wage. i think the correct wage is zero. i think wages should be set by a worker and an employer deciding what a fair wage is. but when it comes to the economy, when the economy is growing, connell, and you've got a lot of demand for labor, then raising the minimum wage doesn't really hurt employment that much. you don't see a big increase in unemployment when the economy's expanding. the time not to raise the minimum wage is a time like now where you have a very tight labor market, where you have a lot of workers who can't find jobs. what you do when you raise the unemployment rate in that kind -- the minimum wage in that kind of situation is the evidence is pretty clear that it puts a lot of low-skilled workers out of work. especially, by the way, connell can, you raise that minimum wage to $15 an hour, you're going to put a lot of people out of work at that wage. >> well, that makes it a
discussion about what the levels should be, but i asked that question on purpose to start it off which is should there even be a minimum wage, and you say, no. there are others economically who make that argument. but now that we're so far in, what do you think would happen if there was no minimum wage? the other side of it, from that other side politically or economically, they're going to say, boy, we need to have a living wage is the way it would be put where people, you know, can make a living, support their family and, you know, you can't pay them $5 an hour, you can't live on that. what do you say to that? >> sure. first of all, i'm for high wages. i want american workers to be well paid, well trained and skilled so that they can command the highest wage they can possibly get. that's the ticket to the middle class. connell: right. >> what i would argue is that when you raise the minimum wage, what you're doing is you're kind of sawing off the lowest ends of the economic ladder, and that makes it difficult for people to get the first job. if you don't get the first job, you can't get the second job that pays more and the third job. i think all of us, i don't know about you, but my first job was
a minimum wage job, $2.35 to work at a warehouse. but, you know, you learn a lot, and i think it's probably pretty destructive to get rid of those jobs for the lowest -- connell: a lot of it -- >> by the way, mostly teenagers. connell: most of the time when we're in the high school or a little older, and then you move on from that. however, you do have a lot of people older than that trying to get by on this now. forget the argument about no minimum wage for a moment and let me end with the other side of it which is the amount. this is a strive to get to 15 from 7.25, more than double the minimum wage. is there a number that would make more sense where your side of the aisle or your side economically would say, all right, we can live with that, but doubling it's too much? >> here's the problem with a doubling of the minimum wage. by the way, i think that is a completely insane idea. i think you would potentially put hundreds of thousands of people overnight out of work. connell: right. >> if you go to fast food restaurants or the more casual
restaurants, i've experienced this. i don't know about you guys. you notice how they're automating just about everything. you pour your own drink, you go to applebee's, you know, they give you an ipad now, and you order off the menu that way. so what these firms this these restaurant industries are doing and a lot of these minimum wage jobs are restaurant jobs, what they're doing is they're automating as a way to save on labor cost. if you raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour, everything's just going to become self-serve. you're going to have robots serving you or machines and computers doing it. so i think you put a lot of seem out of work. connell: or you'll order from amazon, and there'll be a drone that serves it to you. >> exactly. you see it every day. and the thing is, the you get rid of those jobs, connell, what happens to those workers? connell: right. >> the point i always make is a $7.50 an hour is better than no job. connell: than no job. steve, thanks. we're going to come back to this later in the week, but thanks a lot today and good to see you,
thanks. >> you too. connell: all right. dagen: fedex says today will be the busiest shipping day this its history. again, not because of today, but because of the on line shopping that went on even before or thanksgiving, right? connell: well, that's why they call it cyber monday. we're all very excited about that. dagen: i was trying to avoid using that phrase because it was cooked up by the industry. connell: jo lean kent is at a shipping facility ear in the bronx. hey, yo. >> reporter: yeahs, it's the busiest shipping day in history for fedex. a little bit of news you may remember last night, amazon unveiled new drone technology, and we asked fedex what their reaction is, are they worried about their customers or their business down the line when maybe these drones start to fly, and they said in a statement to us: while we can't speculate on this particular technology, i can say that making every customer experience outstanding is our priority, and anything we do from a technology
stand point will be be with that in mind. so interesting response from fedex. they don't sound terribly worried right now, but we are joined by a guest, gina martinez, senior operations manager here. i have to ask you, we saw thousands of packages flying. how many packages do you guys process here in the bronx? >> probably about 15,000 a day right now. probably will escalate as we go closer to christmas, probably just 15,000 on the a.m. once we get into the december 22nd, 23rd and 24th. >> reporter: so we're talking about the busiest time in fedex history. how have you guys been preparing here? >> we've been gearing up. we extended times, employees working extra hours, getting additional trucks. i mean, we're ready. we're ready for this. >> reporter: certainly a cyber monday that fedex welcomes a lot, and if you do the math, dagen and connell, 125 packages per second. that's how much fedex is
processing today alone. so some astounding numbers on this cyber monday. back to you. dagen: thank you so much. connell: not afraid to say cyber monday. there you go, jo. hey, we're going to talk football coming up -- anything that makes you angry -- in just a moment. we'll talk pro football. there were some great games, a lot of drama, some officiating decisions and also the college games -- dagen: football makes me happy. particularly alabama losing, that makes me happier.

about the pros, what you cover. two basic business decisions coaches had to make, say ban decided -- saban decided to kick the field goal, and the michigan game where the coach had to go for two and the win versus play for overtime. what did you think of the odds that each coach played? >> the odds may have said, hey, maybe you're at home, go to overtime, but that was all gut and instinct, and i'm okay with the head coach of michigan going for two at the end of regulation. his team, the season -- they're not going to go anywhere -- they could knock off the ohio state buckeyes and do it in front of a national audience, go for it. connell: he probably thought he had better odds of doing that. >> they stopped ohio state the entire second half. connell: and saban in. >> i think you have to protect against that. i don't know how they weren't ready for that return. >> right. >> but i'm okay with going for the field goal. the numbers, probably less than 10% that they would not -- that they would even have a chance.

craig a craig and we find out today if aaron rodgers is coming back. >> he told someone at a game the l.a. i feel good, i'll be back. that means nothing. the packers medical staff is very conservative, we will see. dagen: happy birthday to him. turns 0 years old. -- 30 years old. he was on the birthday board today, wake up, brother. >> britney spears' birthday today as well. connell: you're full of information. dagen: you've got to come back more often. >> love it. dagen: okay. connell: we get all worked up about this stuff. dagen: we can talk about it all hour. so the financial times says stocks aren't cheap, but they aren't overextended. we're on the floor of the new york stock exchange, but we do have the vixx at roughly a one month high. is risk or fear of it back? >> well, there's always going to be the people that are going to try and time the market and time that 10-20% correction that everybody's been waiting for throughout 2013, but every time they've tried, they've just
gotten their faces ripped off with any short positions that they may have put on there. so i think the financial times actually has it right right here. if you look at a lot of the metrics, it's not overrxtended. some of the work we look at on a short-term basis, it's certainly not overbought, and some of the other metrics you look at, it is a little expensive on already reported earnings, it's getting up there. but, again, the main factor in 2013 and going into 2014 is as long as you have central banks supporting this market and thereby supporting the economy in whatever way, shape or form you have, there's no reason for stocks to go down. dagen: stay in bed with the fed. keith, good to see you. keith bliss, we'll see you soon. connell: more markets coming up here. it's been a rough year for the gold bugs, sandra smith looks ahead to 2014 for us in just a minute. dagen: and uggs, yeah, the most sought-after fashion item in web searches. not joking. ♪ ♪ every day we're working to be an even better company -

dagen: gold continuing its worst monthy performance since june, and it's just one of 16 commodities setting up this year for big losses. connell: sandra schmitt as has all that -- smith has all that covered in the trade today. >> reporter: hey, gold prices down $23. we're now looking at $1,227 a troy ounce. silver prices also down, basically good economic news which we got on the housing market today, that translates to the fed may begin to taper this month. if we get that, we get a stronger dollar and weaker precious metal prices, so that's certainly the trade today. you'll see that silver on a percentage basis continued to do even worse than gold. gold for november, by the way,
worst monthly performance since june, but it's been a bad year for gold, guys. for those keeping track, gold lost another 5.3% in the month of november. on pace for its first annual drop in 13 years. typically, we see gold be higher. not the case this year. gold prices down 27% year to date, and it's not just gold that is suffering these bear market losses. it's not alone. corn rices down 42% so far for 2013. silver down 36%, outpacing the losses that gold has suffered so far. coffee down 4% and -- 24% and wheat prices, guys, while not in a bear market, down 17% because of a bumper crop, obviously, that the united states has been reporting. several of the commodities are expected to lose ground, guys, as we enter into the rest of the year. guess what? december, 55% of the time it's a negative month for commodities, and in those years looking back about 100 years, guys, in the
years where we're negative as a group of commodities are negative going into december, they tend to see exacerbated losses. so, dagen and connell, jeff curry over at goldman sachs last week calling for significant the losses for commodities across the board. it's shaping up to look like that may be the story as we head into the final trading days of the year. connell: sandra smith, thank you very much. and it must be that time of year when we have pnc wealth management out with his 30th annual christmas price index. this is where they do the work for us and figure out what all 364 mentioned in the 12 days of christmas song would set you back were you to go out and actually buy them, and it's around $114,000 this year. 6.9% jump from last year. you go out and buy a leaping lord or whatever. online shopping, if you go to buy your lord online, you can expect to pay more, they'll drop about $173,000. and this christmas price index outpacing the government's

[laughter] how was your holiday, dennis? dennis: it was wonderful. and i feel like despite that disappointing retail number, we'll make it up. you just watch. cheryl: you are very bullish. dennis: top of the hour, stocks now and every 15 minutes,ny pole pole -- nicole petallides, and stocks up three straight months here, but they're wavering this morning. i ain't afraid. >> reporter: just like our camera, but you found we right here on wall street where i'm always standing, keeping a close eye on the dow, the nasdaq and the s&p. mixed market here so far. cob congratulate lakeses to cheryl for taking that turkey, never made one, only ate them. but right now the dow and the nasdaq are to the downside, the s&p 500 with a gain of one-tenth of 1%. all three of the major averages not too far up the up changed line, but you've had three straight months of gains, eight straight weeks of gains, the dow jones and the s&p 500 it's up almost 27% this year for 2013, so, obviously, that's on track for the best annual percentage
gain since 9-- 1997. but the vixx, the fear index, up arrows. it's been creeping just a little bit higher, but it depends who you talk to. some people say, hey, you made over to 20,30% on your money, and others say, listen, this rally just won't quit. back to you. dennis: thanks very much, nicole. cheryl: it is time for our monday panel. first up on the agenda, market bubble sirens going off. this time from a very credible source. robert shiller, winner of the 2013 nobel prize for economics, says that u.s. equity markets are overvalued, and he's warning of a potential stock market bubble. let's take this to the monday gang. sandra smith is joining us from the cme, adam shapiro along with simon constable. dennis, you're one of the most bullish people that i know, but does he have a point, do you think? dennis: you know what? every time stocks go up to a new
record, and you see the s&p 500 up 27%, and you worry, yes, there's a big bubble. robert shiller got his nobel prize for his expertise in home prices. i didn't hear him calling the huge bubble burst there. i think that the stocks, while they're high, we are on the brink of far better shape than we were when stocks were at a high in october '07, cheryl. cheryl: and to dennis' point, he did bring up the fact that brazil's real estate market is showing signs of bubble territory which is what got us in trouble. >> right. he actually said brazil, what's going on there reminds him of 2004. but remember, when he's talking about a potential stock market bubble, he's not saying we're there yet. he said we're heading in that direction. he uses his own index, essentially, which is -- it smooths out for volatility, and it includes -- it's not just price earnings, he's looking at the actual earnings for the s&p 500. and it's at a level that's starting to get elevated. it's not at bubble territory yet, but we're head anything that direction. cheryl: the economy can't keep
up with asset prices, but he got more specific, simon. he mentioned technology, he mentioned financial. these are two of the hottest sectors of '12 and '13. >> why is that any surprise? we have interest rates at near zero. wouldn't you expect a bubble for an extended period of time? things are just going to slide into whatever's the best thing, and we're seeing the momentum go up. so i'm not surprised he's saying this. the only question is, is will it go up more? and it could. dennis: talking heads on television have a bias to the downside. no one -- you get in trouble with your clients when you tell them to buy something because it's going to go up and then it goes down. so when you warn, careful, there could be a double, then you look like a genius. cheryl: not sure what talking heads you're talking about -- [laughter] sandra, to dennis' point be, certainly, there's a lot of, you know, there's fear, of course, when the taper does begin that the asset bubbles are all going to pop and this is all going go
to the downside, but most banks coming out for 2014 saying equity markets are going to at least be up 8, 9%. maybe they've got a better point than shiller goes. >> you've gone from an economist to analysts, two groups of people that have no skin in the game. and that, of course, is what people in the trading community have problems with robert shiller, saying we might be seeing a bubble. we're talking about robert shiller saying that he's seen signs of a bubble. he has not even gone out on a limb and called this a bubble. the only credit i will give him is he's raising the best point of all right now, and that is what a bubble is, and that's when the price of these assets rises to a point that is not based on the underlying fundamentals of the market. he's saying that the economy in the u.s. is still weak and perhaps these asset prices are not rendered by the economy that we're still looking at today, and i think that's a valid point to be making as an economist today. dennis: let's remember the last
time there was this big bubble, we had pets.com trading for 100 times revenue because it sold pet food online. this time around facebook earns a billion dollars a year. is there nip here on this panel -- anyone here on this panel who could tell me what event would happen that would make this almost bubble burst? go ahead. >> i would go with high interest rates. it's just the way things are valued. you increase the interest rate, the cash flows are worth less. that's the nature of it. >> give you a real world event. consumers are not spending the money they need to spend. we saw it in the last earnings report, dennis. they head their earnings, but on revenue -- dennis: that's not going to cause a big collapse. yeah, if something went wild -- >> unfortunately, dennis -- cheryl: go ahead, sandra. >> unfortunately, it's going to be good news that's going to lead to the selloff in the stock market. it's going to be great employment numbers, added jobs in this country is why we're all of a sudden going to see a stock market -- cheryl: okay. i've got to get to this next story because it really is the story everyone is talking about
today. amazon's ceo jeff pez so unveiling new drone technology on "60 minutes" that he hopes will revolutionize the way amazon delivers products. i don't know, adam, could this be a safety hazard? >> well, it is -- we can talk about the safety issues, we'll let the faa deal with that by 2015. it's a great idea. it's absolutely going to happen, but it doesn't make things cheaper for amazon was they're incredibly efficient by having the fulfillment centers and then using ups or fedex to deliver. if they're going to have 30 minute delivery, you're going to have to have, essentially, inventory within 30 minute deliver, so that becomes expensive. dennis: got to disagree with adam. of course, this would save money. a cable company spends $the 200, when you can send a little helicopter thing to deliver it, this will never happen. this is the perfect example of
tech guys where they think oi doing something because they can, the faa will never appear it. we just had one of these drones lop off the head of some unfortunate perp. it'll never happen for years. ten years, the faa will go crazy. cheryl: sandra? >> well, one little statistic, this isn't like you can all of a sudden say i want a new sofa in my living room -- [laughter] they'll only be able to do this for anything that weighs less than five pounds, he has said -- dennis: 86% of amazon orders. >> it is, but, you know, guys, this is his job, to look forward and to revolutionize his company. five years sounds a little optimistic. >> i think particularly -- [inaudible] this could with a disaster. they could be intercepted, seem could -- [laughter] butterfly net, steal the stuff. who are they going to deliver it to? are you going to drop it on the sidewalk in the city? [laughter]
shotgun and shoot it down? dennis: it is great, right? >> be careful. [laughter] you don't want them playing this clip of you, simon, laughing at you five years from now when you're getting your fedex on your doorstep by drones. dennis: i'd be willing to bet you guys $1,000 -- >> what could seriously happen is a takeoff point in new jersey bypassing the bridges and tunnels to a landing point on the hudson river this manhattan, so there are ways to do in this new york city. cheryl: so we could say, in all seriousnd, congress did tell the faa last year, actually, to try and come up with regulations for drone technology. i mean, this actually was talked about last year. dennis: let's remember that, yeah, a drone could beat the traffic and skip that tunnel, but it's delivering one little box at a time, and trucks deliver -- >> well, what bezos said was the five pound or less package, but ups is looking, actually, at
drones of much larger scale just to cross the river to a central distribution point in manhattan. cheryl: sandra was ahead of it talking about the bigger drones. all right, last topic, guys, bitcoin. it eclipses the $1,000 mark, and now the british channel island is in talks with the royal mint to actually produce physical coins. so is this further proof that bitcoin is actually going to stick around? it has plenty of detractors, but does it hurt their arguments when you've got an actual country, an island anyway? >> it's a small island, but they're talking about making a collectible, okay? they're not talking about making money, and it won't be money because it's not a unit of account. nobody stacks up their wealth and says i've got this many bitcoins. who prices in bitcoins? they price in dollars or pounds or whatever. cheryl: stuart varney made a great point, he said, wait, i'm going to give you dollars and you're going to give me that coin? i don't think so. >> it makes no sense.
bitcoin's whole process is that it's not a unit of currency this the way that you look at the dollar. cheryl: dennis, you've not been a big fan. dennis: it's fascinating and we're obsessed with it, but it's really stupid. there's the bubble, guys. it ain't in stocks, it's in the freaking bitcoin. it's something that opportunity exist, and it's just -- something that doesn't exist, and it's just weird. cheryl: i talked to a couple who traveled the wor on bcoin it w foodhey hrobm wi. staunts d n cluwhat theye dog t. >> ye. yo kno i thk theecon th th airm of e feral rerve,en bernke, menoned tcoi evy ursd, hm i beer tehis aittlore seousl tcoi the lstrice was ove theicefodas oue of go. the's lotf ta abo a buet,ut ohin kep i th dnig,we don -- md,

this morning down grading group op -- groupon, zillow and as a result on the day where the market's flat, these stocks are moving to the downside. groupon's down almost 5%, zillow 5.5% and 3% for orbitz worldwide. just a couple of quick thoughts, groupon as they cut back to neutral, they continue to believe the opportunity is in local there, so that is good news there, but again, valuation calls. groupon's up 77% this year. how about orbitz worldwide, 150%, zillow up 168%. i mean, come on. those are great, great performances and basically now goldman's saying, look, the valuation is run up, and that's enough with the premium val weighs, take some money off the table. cheryl: nicole, thank you so much. appreciate it. >> thanks. dennis: starbucks is brewing up a new strategy if europe. the premium coffee giant has had
a tough time over there, so it's been expanding loyalty programs, opening stores in blue collar areas, and now "the wall street journal" reporting that starbucks is turning to franchising. it's long avoided letting independent owners saying it wants full control over its brand, but it's starting to see the strategy as a way of getting into some overseas markets. of 200 stores it has plans to open in europe, the middle east and africa, 75% will be with franchise sees or lie ensees. down the teensiest bit. cheryl: well, fedex -- another name to watch during the month of december -- ramping up for the holiday rush. that's helping the stock become one of the day's high fliers, actually. of. dennis: ask more shoppers but spending less money. here's how the world's currencies, meantime, are faring against the u.s. dollar. no bitcoin listed. ♪ there are mush muck. ♪ ♪ ♪ every day we're working to be an even better company -

and availability of the site. so far the only really address the availability. that does not take into account the confidentiality of the integrity. we still have issues. we have allowed the politics to drive the technology in the first place. we saw how that worked out. unfortunately that seems to be happening again. we have got a technical update report which really looks to me much more like a political speech and -- speaking points documented technical delivery document. cheryl: i want to read you a quote here. this is the president and ceo of america's health care plan speaking to the new york times. insurers lori repairs a back end systems which is supposed to deliver consumer information to insurers are still not completed until this process is done insurance companies will not be able to enroll. less than one month from the deadline. december 31st. we have to have a backup plan, even if it is a phone call from a consumer to the insurance
company themselves. this website seems to be a true failure from several perspectives. >> the biggest failure that we have is that at a time when transparency is the thing that would get people to calm down and to instill faith back in the system, what we are not getting is that transparency. instead we are getting is answers that really don't tell us enough to be able to assess whether this back in system seven looked at. the harvested in permission back up to the insurance companies. we still really don't know the status of that. the same time we are hearing statistics that are designed to make us feel better that really don't mean much. for example, and the report that came out yesterday you mentioned that they had worked on 400 different bug fixes. they did not tell you what the total number of bugs there were. we don't know if it's good or bad. cheryl: there is also another statement.

two, even bigger than the bay. it is a brick and mortar retailers. are they doing something right? >> a lot of these guys have spend it -- been so focused on thanksgiving and their brick and mortar sales that they have not done much historically. this year they have been paralleled an offline and online promotions. offering as if not more compelling offers and are stepping up their game to compete with more of the pure plays like ebay or amazon. dennis: the national retail federation said 43 percent of all purchases were down on line over the weekend. meanwhile, it turns out that you say 40 percent of online purchases are down on mobile, smart phones instead of sitting home on the laptop. tell us about that. 16 percent of all sales now are mobile. >> very interesting. last year we saw the peak mobile there was thanksgiving. about 38%. this year we have been hovering a 40%. we are seeing it is pretty cool
