where the last defender is. we can have the laser follow the latest defender cinema where he moves the line can be projected on the field we had connell: i'm going to be buying one. we like it in terms of the technology and innovation. making money, how is that going? >> it is going slowly. we have had meetings with different leagues, we have been refining our product. example of monday night with a real cry to have more accuracy in the game and not have the game turn on what certainly was a close, critical decision and probably a wrong decision. that is the point we make for the enjoyment beyond the replay.

leadership seeing things get into round. we do have complacency in the market. the market has moved higher and higher. i would be very concerned no matter what. dagen: it doesn't just reappear. >> of course it does. people thought it was risky to reduce the leverage the you have to pull out of stocks so it can have been very, very easily. if you look at gold, for example, one of the most hatedd% things right now. dagen: the pullback in the stock market was based on how the musical chairs ended for mortgage origination and

need for more money onto every business and say i have three kids to feed. that is not how the compensation system works in this country. >> the bottom line here for the most part is it appears most fast food restaurants are not conducting business as usual. only a small number of fast food workers have in fact walked off the job. cheryl: these demonstrations are amazing across the country. david, thank you. dennis: instigating this fast food push behind the fights from california to illinois. are the unions out of control in america? here to weigh in, fox news. let's start with you, a study saying they increased fast food wages to $15 per hour, even justin fast food losing half a
million jobs. >> that is right. that is 107% jump. i have even seen liberal economists willing to defend that. the same people who would have been telling us it was a great way to run an auto company. it is not serious. they're not even willing to defend the agency strikes anymore. i think at the end of the day it is fair to say another corporate campaign in the sky trying to demonize and industry. dennis: if the group is right it would cut half a million jobs, are you willing or more people to be out of work? >> it does not have to be $15, you don't have to double it.
half the people on assistance in fast food workers are on assistance costing $7 billion per year. they're getting assistance anyways. dennis: why not just go and get a better job? >> you say it like it is easy to get a better job. >> aren't we going to incentivize not to bother getting a better job? >> you're going to see what happened at the locations for the minimum wages, check out places on the computer. the study he is referencing, the think tank on the labor sector.
we can either provide partial support, or subsidy raising the minimum wage and they cannot find work anymore. that is an unrealistic alternative. they are being subsidized anyway because some of them are being put on food stamps. you have to do something about it. now illinois. aren't the unions with deficit down and negotiate? >> maybe at some point. dennis: we do it in the private sector all the time, why can't you? >> this idea government workers are uncomfortable, but yet all activity.
>> it is ridiculous. these people deserve what they were told they would get. >> it is a lot more antigovernment. dennis: you're a good sport. the congressional bill in illinois, you'll hear from the guy who could be the next governor in illinois. talk was tracy byrnes and ashley webster at 2:00 p.m. cheryl: "wall street journal" reporting americans with chronic illnesses might also be big losers with higher out-of-pocket drug cost. joining us to talk about how it will affect the pocketbook, it is great to have you on the program. the journal found the biggest issue here is the still had to
sign up for the plan before they will tell you what your benefits are going to be. how are we supposed to know what it will be? >> they are very tough, especially where lots of sick people are opting into the exchanges premiums may be lower. they will have a tough time figuring out how much will cost them. typically can be brand or specialty drug people paying for their own individual responsibility. what is almost impossible or very difficult for consumers to figure out when they go to healthcare.gov and the exchanges is what plans are available and what drugs are in the form of various for the plans they are picking. we end up with a lot of sick people who think they will get the drugs they need or find out
they have to pay a lot more to keep those drugs. cheryl: take the hiv drug, for example. the retail cost is $2200 per month. now if you go to cigna for example you will pay more than $1000 per month for that drug. humana also 800 million health care $55 per month. this information is not getting through to these consumers, are they going to have to figure out what information will get to the consumer, will they be liable to lawsuits if they start to sue because they were misinformed? >> it will be complicated because they do have a responsibility ultimately providing information about the plan, but here's the catch 22 and that example you just asked. you will prepare those based on
that which is covered by basic plan. but you're also going to have to superimpose on that if your doctors are covered with those plans. suppose you a situation where your doctor in one plan but the drugs are not covered by the plan. it is very complicated in terms of the consumer is left with because even with the employer market it is a very collocated decision and often times they don't understand the amount of the individual responsibility and what happens. cheryl: may have to be uncertain treatments. that is going to be broken. thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, appreciate it. dennis: the president narrowing income equality.
if every u.s. home replaced one light bulb with a compact fluorescent bulb, the engy saved could light how many homes? 1 million? 2 million? 3 million? the answer is. 3 million homes. by 2030, investments in energy efficiency could help american save $300 billion each year. take the energy quiz. energy lives here.
cheryl: the dow down by 14 points. try not to make this another day of down numbers. i want to take a look at a center between now and new year's eve. that is the retail sector. nicole petallides on the new york stock exchange. two specific retail names were watching right now. >> take a look at some of these names on the move. start off by looking at kohls.
the stock is up over 1%. also worth noting kohls says they will be open around the clock 24 hours from december 20 through christmas. how about dollar general? coming out with better-than-expected numbers, 14% earnings, that is some good news. they did well with perishables, things you consume rather than the other areas. they did very well. act to you. cheryl: good to see you. dennis: what is bugging me is our president's next obsession. a rousing speech yesterday he vowed to devote the rest of his presidency to this and you can see the sleight-of-hand from the cheat sheet.
he fixates on passing obamacare. it was the crisis, and now it is the wealth gap. the president says he takes it personally. the fixes you propose are the wrong ones. more regulations and nearly 40% increase in the minimum wage. johnson declared a war on poverty, federal spending u up 11,000%, up 110 fold. as a percentage of the budget quadruple to 16%. and for all those billions it has gone down three full percentage points. it would fix poverty if on the government would get out of the way. should our president stop worrying and focus on fixing
obamacare? cheryl: some good news for the economy, but bad news, we will break down all the major data coming out and what you need to know. dennis: a storm coming, the latest from the weather center next. so i can reach ally bank 24/7, but there are no branches? 24/7. i'm sorry, i'm just really reluctanto try new things. really? what's wrong with trying new things? look! mommy's new vacuum!

cheryl: a deep freeze across the midwest with temperatures dipping two minus 30 degrees in some parts, and the cold front in the northeast. chief meteorologist with the very latest. >> it will eventually get across the east but it is a slow mover. take a look at denver, these are high temperatures right here. through the next five days high temperature does not get out of the teens. the cold is there in the overnight lows right around zero all the way into monday. you can see where the big delineation is on this cold front. 36 in dallas, you will remain in
the 30s or under for the next five days and that is very cold for that far south. feels like minus 37 in montann, minus 20 in wyoming, the cold air is there. moisture coming down from the south and a big problem here, some snow, and also freezing rain. all kind of advisories in texas, new mexico and where you see the purple i think the biggest concern likely looking at a big ice storm over half an inch of icing across the roads and any other street surface. a power outage toward tomorrow morning or tomorrow afternoon. cheryl: thank you. >> you bet. dennis: time to make money with charles payne. we headed over to grace and look at the shipping industry. nothing like a descriptive name. charles: it is really starting
to come on. the reflection of the global economy. pmi numbers all over the world this week. modest gains, but the trends are positive. i don't know if you remember when this space was really hot, this hit $110 per share. $110 per share. the biggest pullback back over $100 per share. ended 11,700. this stock has been down more in that same time. not necessarily doubled, but certainly moving higher. pulled back, the next stop 393. the fundamentals were there. 2014 will be a big year. they have deep oil platforms and 10 tankers. what killed it was they
overspent. these big ships. they hold 200,000 deadweight ton. you could put this whole building on them. all of that now may be behind them and this could be a huge winner. cheryl: the market will come back. charles: it is a reflection out of america. building up and building up. dennis: thank you very much, charles. cheryl: cracking down on e-cigarettes. two cities have now banned smoking in public. regulation is on the way. details coming up in the "west coast minute." dennis: banks facing stiffer regulation. if you own a financial stock, listen up, new rules that may
cost all of us. but look at the winners on the s&p. capital to make it happen? without the thinking that makes it real? what's a vision without the expertise to execute it... and the financing toake it grow? whatever your goal, it can change more than your business. it can change the future. that's y, at barclays, our ambition is to always realize yours.

nicole: there is movement picking up at this moment. it is down 26 points but let's look at some names, watching j.c. penney which is a loser today and over the last three month and year-to-date up 50%. the latest is j.c. penney's numbers, whether or not they will actually need funding in 2014. twitter getting a pop, 4550, gaining lows in november. microsoft expect one sale but action believe this is the news that alan mulally may not be coming over. those of our winners are on news offering testimony for batteries with the commercial solar system and a great day today.
back to you. tracy: adding to fears of fed capering, joining me is a chief u.s. economist and giggled big financial service president oliver porche. you think the good news we got today was better, does that mean this is bad news for investors and the fed caper will be sooner than we thing? >> it suggests all of what we have seen in terms of the good and the equity market is because of tapering. i have not been a particularly strong equity market born, a lot of what is happening in the equity market is in part because of fundamentals. in 2014, better economic activity in 2014, make sure everyone on the system, i have not been a strong bull either.
2.4% growth, what we are experiencing. these are separate conversations, make no mistake. we have been clear about this. economic activity in the united states, 1/2% increase activity, what we just came out of. cheryl: what do you say? a stronger2014? >> high single digits by 25%. when we take another 10 or 11%, very possible, corporate earnings continue to grow because the u.s. economy will global economy continues to grow. cheryl: they can't cut any more.
and productivity. >> you will start seeing revenue increases, and the economy as a whole, earnings by cutting and creating more. and increase third quarter gdp is an anomaly, and as a whole you take that and say things wwll get better, more products gets old and services rendered in 2014. cheryl: the bigger question for the markets, we are down a few points. and to make that -- >> a string of economic data don't have a string, one or two data points at best. today's data there's a caveat for each of those points, and
because of the thanksgiving holiday associated with that. we are far away from actual tapering, december and january, the problem in january a transition period. and it is where it goes. >> march bite be a little early. they want to telegraph any move, the biggest fool is forward guidance. so you see them talk about capering and talk about capering more and more before they do it so i would expect them to have three or four different fomc minutes, increased likelihood of taping.
cheryl: there's more and more discord about fomc members, discords this month to give the market in march and if so i'm assuming it is negative market reaction. >> here is what i would say. if you want to call it that, thinking on the contour of the economy. when it comes to capering i don't think there's any question that every single member, we will start that process, every one wants to start that. how do we gauge the market, the discussion within the fed is revolving around and we didn't take grand how do we ease the market into it. >> i would add capering is a positive. will happen because the economy has improved enough, gave medicine away. that is a good thing.
not a bad thing. cheryl: easy money will happen at some point. thank you very much. >> thank you. >> if you own a bank stocks, and adjusted checking accounts, pay attention to the latest on novel rule and how it will affect your investment. liz macdonald joins us with more. liz: if banks can't make profits off of proprietary trading which the full rule will restrict including portfolio hedging, pass along with a loss of profitmaking activity, even on to state bond issuances, a california state treasurer, the bond costs can go up. talking about global core will could come down, a meeting -- here's what jack lew had to say. >> with completion of the volcker rule resolution

found any incidents of a hacker breaking into a car? hurting somebody, no. >> automobile industry is a target of cyberattacks for intellectual property. dennis: what could hacker care about getting in my car? >> if you are an individual of interest and they want to track you and know what you are doing for business purposes, the chinese version, or are there ways to activate vehicle controls and take command of your phone, download information, it is another method of economic espionage. dennis: are you worried about a risk of well-meaning calls public attention to a thing like this, inviting hackers to give it a try? >> that is the possibility bleated delicate balance if the industry isn't paying attention,
a letter that may force him into action but if there is no problem and give somebody an idea about vulnerability that is an issue as well. there isn't much interest going against cars. and not going to get that by controlling bakes -- breaks when they are tested. the security is tight, if carmakers thought about cyber is to the security tight on their cars. from what i understand they are thinking about it. one of the issues, where the problem is. most automobiles are computer oriented. getting better safety thanks to computers, something in the inherent risk to protect the ip to make sure nobody can break-in but like anything else at the end of the day nothing is secure. you can make it more secure, is
an ongoing battle for the automobile industry, taking care of one thread, what is the next thing to look out for. dennis: two fifteen million cars on the road and focusing on fifteen million new cars sold every year, focus on cop cars and fbi cars. >> exactly right. they have secure networks but that is a valid point. government vehicles who have an issue with respect to information being taken out or monitoring the location even if somebody wants to do something individually or tech savvy, the phenomenon out there. dennis: candor to the individual consumer, nothing homeowner can do about this hacker threat, is there? >> at the end of the day unless you go to the back of the automobile magazine, some sort of data on after market, cybersecurity device do that, the friend of mine right now it is really bad for the consumer
and you have to ask the individual dealer with the cybersecurity control in place. >> nobody cares about hacking. no one cares about me either. cheryl: milk on the moon, that is what john boehner says in the months -- how is the contract doing? their back down today because of the showdown pushed down the road. everybody remembers the report, we see the price of milk doubled. $8 a gallon. that is incredible and since the time for the new year, and food stamps program by extending this it is going to give the consumer is a good thing. it doesn't go through, basically
