6:00 am
us. don't forget to dvr the show if you can't watch it live. "making money" with charles payne is up next have. have a fantastic evening and a wonderful weekend. ♪ 92% of you said no. have a great weekend. neil: well after april showers is it too early for investors to hope for some may flowers. someone's high fliers aren't exactly springing to life. apple. twitter. link ilinkedin all beat up. collectively losing tens of millions of dollars in market value. leading some to wonder if these stocks are overvalued. to the man who single-handedly res you resurrected these tech darlings on whether they can get the love they were enjoying last week. what do you think anthony? >> it will be rough. just a slight down tick
6:01 am
in earnings or slightly off analyst expectations, neil and you're seeing a big downdraft in these stocks. linked ilinkedin and twitter down 20%. apple, long-term a buy. take out the $2 billion of cash, only trading at 11 times earnings. the big issue here -- neil: even that got pelted with a great earnings report. >> no question. neil: we're looking for something. >> that's correct. that adage about selling in may and go away. neil: do you buy that? >> there's some truth to it. if you look at it from a technical perspective. there's a larger truth here. this economy typically goes into the recession every seven years. we're getting long in the tooth on a lower longer recovery. maybe that's not a recession in the next six to seven months. the market will feel the pain of that earlier than everything else. so any slight, more bad gdp numbers. lesser on the deficit and the tax revenue
6:02 am
you'll start to see the market rollover. so i'm not calling for a correction today or tomorrow but we're getting -- every day neil we're getting one day closer to another bear market at this point. neil: i was talking to a market guy who said neil, i'm not worried about the averages. i am worried about some of the big names that got us here. he was referring to some of the tech names you mentioned. saying, maybe they'll the ones that will be taken out and shot because they've had a great runoff. >> again not to be a technical person, i'm more on the if you thens. ifif youfundamentals. >> people don't like buying stocks -- they like buying them at the all-time highs. if you look at the volume trading at the tippy top levels that's usually a bad sign. people pull the plug. you see big drown drafts. we caught that this week. the future leans more toward that. neil: since this has been
6:03 am
predominantly happening in tech names, not all are they the ones that will be hard hit, maybe by fer bifurcate a market and get punched? >> i think so. for us we're in a hedged position than we've been. neil: how do you hedge it? >> i don't think you hedge individual names. you have to hedge through shorting the spdr doess or a derivative market. just get into cash. neil: what about those getting into europe? the us had a great run. maybe it's these guy's turn. >> i'm super concerned about europe. negative interest rates. slower than expected growth. the europeans won't like me saying this, we're in a european centric world. when we catch cold neil the rest of the world gets pneumonia. it's not a decoupled world where europe will rise while america is in descent. we're getting long in
6:04 am
the tooth in recovery. long in the tooth in terms of valuation of the markets. if we were here a year ago, i would say hey, market would be higher next year. '14 into '15, but it's less certain '15 into '16. that will mean things for the presidential election. neil: who benefits in that environment? >> secretary clinton doesn't benefit in that environment. she'll have to run on components of the obama legacy and the obama economy. if we're going into a recession, the market is down, even though it's not her fault, it will get personalized to her and the democrats. which republicans will hope for. neil: absolutely. don't you think when it's always their convention. each party trumpets what they have going for them. eight years ago look at where the dow was. look where we've come under the democrats. >> we got the troops home. my policies will help the middle class. neil: bingo. what do you think? >> listen, i think she's a formidable politician.
6:05 am
i think her biggest weakness is herself. she's prone to a lot of gas. when she gets out there she has a little bit of a pendant iic tone. >> talk down to people. neil: you know he plays this humble guy. but he really is a giant. anthony has revamped wall street week is on every sunday 11:00 a.m. eastern time. anthony, i have to tell you, i think mr. rukizer would be really proud. >> thank you. it will be a carl icahnic show this weekend. we filmed him 70 minutes. it was a fantastic experience for me. we talked about his background. his investment style. we talked about his worries. i think you'll hear more junk fears. neil: he just said -- apple. apple is still very undervalued. >> yeah he loves apple.
6:06 am
he's worried about the overall market. when you have guys like carl icahn, 60 years of investing. the best investor ever maybe, better track record than warren buffett saying he's worried about the market. he's 100 basis points over buffett's record. gunlock calling for tops in the jung junk bond market. interesting show for people. (?) melissa and i thank you for watching and supporting it. neil: great stuff. the trust these powerful guests put in him. he's not a prompter reader. not that i am. >> i can't read the prompter. i look like a seventh grader. neil: look forward to it, my friend. the former fed head blasting the wall street journal for questioning whether his actions during the financial crisis set us up for a bigger crisis. not so gentle ben
6:07 am
replying bunk. if not for me, we would be worse off. james freeman he dragged out the pain. james is the one who is being the pain. i think i have their respective positions. right? so mr. freeman, not a fan of what mr. bernanke did why not? >> what we were specifically talking about this week it's been and all of his colleagues on the fed and former colleagues now, we're into the fifth straight year of the fed basically being wrong on the upside. basically overestimating the performance of the economy. overestimating what their cheap money would do. neil: you're saying if he didn't do any of that stuff, we would be better off today? >> well the journal's position was that the fed did a good job during the crisis providing liquidity. but we're now more than six years past the crisis and it still is near zero rates. very accommodative --
6:08 am
neil: they can stop now. what do you think? >> i think the fed is in a tough situation. they're utilizing monetary policy which is designed to influence business cycles. this is a secular disinflationary trend. influenced by globalization. technology. hard to see where inflation will come from. again, monetary policy wasn't really designed to change that trend. the fed -- neil: that's what worries me, jack. we might have slightly different views on this. i think the fed came into this with a clear goal to stabilize thing. there was a time when ben was the only adult in the rule. did he take a precedent that's very nerve-racking in which the markets are still dependent on today? >> yeah and it is still dependent. go ahead. >> one thing we may agree on is monetary policy cannot solve this country's economic problem. neil: it's too late. now we expect it. right? >> it's not too late. it's not too late. but they do need to stop
6:09 am
misleading themselves and the public about the powers that they have to give us a vibrant growing economy. neil: fair enough. i think what james has said. that we might be creating a new bubble here. courtesy of the fed. >> no. i disagree. again, i think -- and i think bernanke has actually been kind of up front about the limitations of monetary policy. if you're looking for someone to blame i blame washington. the fact we have this antibusiness environment. we should be incentivizing the corporate sector. neil: i agree with you on that. >> that's true. why does the fed put out optimistic growth numbers that they have to acknowledge they were wrong. actions speak louder than words. if they were committed -- >> we're going to stop now. it's up to the politicians to fix the problems that we have on the tax and regulatory end. neil: i think it's a little disingenuous for ben to say his role was small or limit. given the trillions that was pumped into the
6:10 am
economy, that wasn't exactly a passive role. >> and i agree. it's just -- >> jack could you answer that. jack: i think the fed had an instrumental role. they were forced to be in that role. you go back to sort of 1937, you know, we know the fed tightened after eight years of the financial crisis of the great depression. and it just reinforced. it turned the depression into i think a great depression. neil: which was essentially journal's argument which maybe they now overdid it. right? >> i think this argument that he did great things and things would be so much worse without him it's not something you can prove or disprove. i do think we haven't seen yet the full impact of his programs in terms of, if you look at what he did along with alan greenspan and others in the early to mid-2000s they obviously kept rates too low for too
6:11 am
long. that helped raise asset prices. gave us a bubble in houses. led to horrible consequences. i'm not saying that's happening now. before you render a verdict on bernanke, you need to see how we get out of this current monetary policy and get back to normal. neil: we don't know. i will say this, only the journal could get him -- he's like a crazy guy with a in a room. sending you nasty emails. i admire that part of him. do you wonder who made al sharpton made him the go-to minister. i'm fair and balanced when it comes to ministers. i don't have any problem hearing from those who don't want to be. ♪
6:12 am
the real question that needs to be asked is "what is it that we can do that is impactful?" what the cloud enables is computing to empower cancer researchers. it used to take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome; with the microsoft cloud we can analyze 100 per day. whatever i can do to help compute a cure for cancer, that's what i'd like to do.

6:15 am
neil: protesters are feeling shut out by al sharpton. imagine that. the reverend holding a closed-door meeting without them. katrina pearson says sharpton is keeping out the people he's claiming he wants to help. very good point. i find it the ultimate hypocrisy, the day after he's pointing at a fox reporter for creating you know, a big stink about something here he creates multiple big stinks. what do you think? >> well it's -- like you said these are people that he's claiming to be representing at this point. even though race has not been evolved here. he's shown up because there's a camera and black people in front of it. that gives him his cue to show up. i think al sharpton pretty much knows what i know and the rest of the black community knows is that he doesn't represent the black community. if he did, he would spend more of his time going after all the
6:16 am
white liberals keeping down these children through the failed education system. as well as the culture. the gangster rap industry which is causing this behavior in the communities to begin with. but, no, he wants to be in front of the cameras with the people that live in the million dollar homes. neil: i think you raise a good point. maybe you and i don't agree on this. i have no problem with community bringing in an al sharpton, but i'm fair and balanced when it comes to ministers. they should include guys like john who are never invited to these meetings. i think he makes sense. >> these children need help neil. our children are watching this. our children are watching this. my children is watching this! our children are watching this, neil it is time to turn from our wicked ways seek the face of god so he can heal our land. it is that hour neil.
6:17 am
enough of this foolishness. enough of it because -- neil: you said it better, my friend. why should i add to anything? you know, what he was talking about was personal responsibility on the part of blacks, whites liberals, republicans. i'm not saying replace al sharpton. you want to hear that, that's fine. but in addition to al sharpton yet we never do. >> well you don't because it doesn't placate to what the media wants to put out there, is racial division. it doesn't help the politics in the country to show the other side. and it's interesting because a lot of people, even on the right that i deal with all the time, they don't understand the perspective in the black community. and i can tell you neil. being biracial myself i've experienced the good and bad of both races. both sides need to get out there. these are some of the things the black community are told particularly when it comes to media coverage.
6:18 am
it's a simple fact. we don't have to look back far to find out. when you have a missing white girl, you see 24-hour looping coverage of her disappearance. does that mean black women don't get abducted? absolutely not. these are the whispers that take place on the ground in the communities. on top of the injustices in the court system. it's not a race thing when it comes to a justice side. it's a class side. poor people get used and manipulated through and through all throughout history. like this case in baltimore, when they tried to say oh, well this is a race thing. but here you have black cops being run by a black woman. whereas in ferguson, the answer was, we need more black cops in these communities. and it just goes to show you, that that's not the right answer. we have a systemic issue in the country. and it goes back decades. and it starts with the socioeconomic failures of the policies that these children are trapped in. neil: and the victim myization
6:19 am
that comes with it. well-put. why when it comes to his white house dreams, something that went down today that could make him history. when cigarette cravings hit, all i can think about is getting relief. nicorette mini starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. anytime. anywhere. i never know when i'll need relief. that's why i choose nicorette mini.
6:20 am
6:21 am
6:22 am
neil: whatever happened to chris christie? little more than a year ago he was out of the fast lane out of new jersey then headed to the white house. then one of those lanes apparently shut down. today, an ally admitted guilty. no sign points directly to the governor. let's just say, they do point to a continued fixation to scandal that won't go away. over a new jersey economy that won't get better. forget about bridgegate on are whatever they're calling. all this other stuff closes the gate on chris christie's chances. to the mayor of new jersey former steve. that's been my premise
6:23 am
all along, is that. it's the economy. for a lot of new jerseyans, it's not improved. >> i came across the george washington bridge today. that toll was eight bucks. today it's $11. state spending has gone through the roof. i think it's the 40th state in the nation to do business according to the tax foundation. governor christie had the opportunity to turn new jersey around and make it an economic powerhouse. new jersey once led the nation in job growth. wage growth. this was the place to build your business. thomas edison moved from new york to new jersey because it was the best state to do business. he's had a wonderful opportunity to make new jersey an economic powerhouse. that's no excuse. the governor of new jersey is one of the most powerful executives in the country. he could have been advancing a powerful message of growth. that's what we need in the presidential race. neil: what will be a catalyst?
6:24 am
assuming he runs for president what will be his call? steve: i don't know how you use your failed record in new jersey. and new jersey has 1 foot on the banana peel. three downgrades of our bond ratings. neil: nothing to do with bridgegate feud. just the economy not getting fraction. >> how do you get a promotion when you failed in new jersey? neil: was it his management style, his approach? >> i think he ran an administration that was based -- he put a former prosecutor in charge of development. look atlantic city. atlantic city is a microcosm of economic growth. it should be doing phenomenally today. neil: it never did well job it did do well. neil: when? as long as i've lived here -- >> back in the earlier years. it could have always done better if it wasn't for state involvement. vegas, out in the middle of the desert is doing
6:25 am
tremendously well. neil: fair enough. his critics will say he's good on the stump. in your face. i don't know whether that in your face style will go in south carolina or iowa. what do you think? >> that doesn't explain the fact that we lost 10 million families out of new jersey last year. we yesterday had a press conference he paid 49000 per job to keep a company in new jersey. the economic model in new jersey is miserable and it's getting worse. we're actually worse off today, economical, than we were under jon corzine. that's hard to explain. neil: are you running for governor? >> no. neil: not yet. >> yet. neil: thank you very much. meantime the republicans are close to pulling off something the democrats never could. a budget. why are if you suffer from a dry mouth then you'll know how uncomfortable it can be. but did you know that the lack of saliva can also lead to tooth decay and bad breath? well, there is biotene
6:26 am
specially formulated with moisturizers and lubricants... biotene can provide soothing relief and it helps keep your mouth healthy too. from a dry mouth.
6:27 am
6:28 am
neil: republicans have a deal.
6:29 am
to hear some tea partiers tell it, not much of one. the house passing a balanced budget that doesn't raise taxes over the next ten years. but it does hike defense spending. that's where tea partiers are saying. wait a minute. john price says it's not the case at all. it's a good deal. (?) congressman great to have you again. you heard this from the far right saying that you're so far on the wrong track that is republicans in general are not doing what they said about spending. what do you say? >> just not so. we've clamped down on spending on the discretionary side for the past now five years to hold spending basically level for that period of time. on the defense issue of how much money should we spend on defense, it's important that we appreciate that we need to define the mission and then provide the resources available. we have never as a nation said, this is what we'll spend on defense regardless of the mission. this is a very dangerous world, as you and your listeners know. so what we need to do is make certain we provide
6:30 am
the services available for -- the resources available for the pentagon and the department of defense. the department of defense has been cut by $5 billion just in the last four years. so we're holding the line on spending. that's a good, good thing. neil: where are you getting that other money from? they're saying it's all smoke and mirrors. you're not cutting from other areas. so whatever secret things you cut. you tossed aside the backbone. tell me they're wrong. >> there's another thing called the global terror war fund. we've had to provide more resources there so we could provide the defense department with the resources they need. what we need to do is define those mandatory savings so that we can actually provide money for the defense department. neil: have you? >> what that will take is democrats in the senate to assist us. sixty votes in the senate to assist our
6:31 am
efforts. we haven't had that kind of cooperation to date. but what we've done is started this with a balanced budget within a ten-year period of time that doesn't raise taxes. neil: i mean you're a good man. a decent man. i don't know about you. i don't know what i'll have for breakfast next week. let alone a ten-year plan. why are you so sure that it will work? >> i know the resolve is there. not just on what of the republicans in the house of representatives. but the american people. you can't be 18 trillion in debt plus continue to spend hundreds of billions of dollars in interest payments. so much so, in a ten-year time we'll be spending a trillion dollars on interest. that's money wasted. every dollar on interest can't be used to buy a car, pay the rent buy a business. these are serious issues and questions. what we need is the american people to rally around the folks here in washington who are actually trying to solve these challenges, not the ones who are getting in the way. neil: all right, thank you, my friend. very good to see you.
6:32 am
house budgets committee chairman. have a good weekend. >> take care. neil: you ever wonder what keeps charlie gasparino so surprised? well he lives to make young folks' lives hell. that's his magic. that's all my bitter boomers magic. their magic may be wearing off. who knows that better than one of the greatest mamagicians after all times. not bitter. kreskin is just better. ♪

(?) i think this is just a start i'm thinking it tends to get bigger. when we have the amateurs again. things will change. neil: we've talked about this before everyone. nothing against mayweather or pacquiao, both of these guys weigh as much as my arm. now, that's fine. i'm saying, whatever happened to the heavyweight stars? what happened to the time when you were dominating the scene and you had your foremans and larry. and joe fraziers. where are they? where is that dynamic heavyweight bunch? where are they? >> well they are playing football. they're playing basketball. neil: you're right. you're right. >> and so, we took boxing away from -- from television. where the kids who really fight are the kids that don't have the money to pay for
6:51 am
pay-per-view. we took it from the mainstream now. the kids don't get a chance to see it. they go into football and basketball. neil: that's a great point. i never thought of that. i'm wondering, when you look back in your day and you were a headline performer. a multiple champion in multiple divisions. that was in a day when you know, we didn't have like, eight heavyweight champions. we didn't have this alphabet soup of titles. do you think that was the start of the problem? >> yes. i think in the point of trying to make more money still quality fighters, the champion changing over every fight. don't a one know how to box. just how to fight. neil: everyone is focused on the fight tomorrow. there's something even bigger going on with you. take a look at this. >> i've decided to fight back.
6:52 am
how do you do that? by taking on the former heavyweight champion of the world. >> that's true. i don't have much of a right hook. but when i get somebody's ear, i can be pretty formidable. neil: all right. what is this about? you and mitt romney are going to go, you know, meet each other in the ring. now, why? what is this for? >> this is for, you know -- these kids. they are blind and the money that's raised is to help these kids restore their sight. and these are underprivileged kids. so this -- this -- this boxing match with mitt and i will do it. it will benefit all them young kids out there that wouldn't be able to get the surgeries. neil: you know, i'm just very worried though. because i love the both of you. and i'm afraid he's going to hurt you. >> hurt me? neil: yeah.
6:53 am
>> come on. [laughter] for real? neil: yeah. i am. because i just have a feeling like in the middle of the fight he'll pull out a spreadsheet and bore you to death. i have no idea. >> well i'm going to get to spreadsheets. neil: how do you and mike tyson get along these days? >> things are well with mike and i. we show up in places. and people want to be there. neil: do you ever say you sob, you took a chunk out of my ear? >> well, you know, every time i look in the mirror i'm reminded that he did take a little piece of it. neil: well, that was a heck of a fight. and, boy, that was a sign of frustration on his part. evander holyfield you're in a league of your own, young man. we're very happy to have you with us. so beat up on mitt romney. he won't be easy on you. evander holyfield. multiple heavyweight
