6:01 am

6:02 am
seng in the shanghai also in positive territory. fixing the flock on the promising to pat the chip issue that led to billions of vulnerable to hackers when to hackers in a row let the update coming out. the former computer engineer over his anti-diversity memo filing a class-action lawsuit against google, why he claims the company discriminates against conservative white men. plus, how apple is giving parents more control after facing investor backlash over iphone addiction on children. then the crimson tide will enter the competition yet again. >> fire to the end zone. touchdown. alabama with another comeback against georgia yesterday. the championship title in less than 10 years at all of the
6:03 am
highlight in atlanta coming out. joining us from new york studio this morning, fox business network taken it out will. good morning. dagen: good morning, maria. i read the transcript of this interview he did with jamie dimon and all i have to say is people better listen up, turn the volume up and pay attention because it is incredible. >> he was really bullish. that's our top story right now. the impact of tax reform and i tax reform in a fox exclusive. chairman and ceo jamie dimon tells me he is bullish about the year ahead. he expects to be paying out consistent dividends and investing in his business consistently. he shared the corporate tax rate to 21% of the way down from 40%. >> what do you feel is the impact of this when you talk about a 21% corporate rate versus all the way down from close to 40%. that's a big deal.
6:04 am
what is the impact? >> somehow the impact tomorrow will have a huge cumulative effect and i'm kind of surprised people say it would be good for america. if you go back 20 years ago, the world is that almost 40%. now most of the world is close to 20% and we are 40%. i look at competitive taxes. it's a bad idea and by most measures its overseas in price waterhouse estimated 5000 companies that would've been headquartered here are now headquartered overseas. it is a huge disadvantage and doing things in the short run like increasing wages than a bunch of stuff like that are one-time bonuses. we will announce it sometime later, but over time, and every teen capital will be used to grow businesses, higher wages and competition in overtime will
6:05 am
be very good for america. dagen: joining us to weigh in, jon hilsenrath. good to see you. thanks for weighing in here. jamie dimon talked about the corporate tax rate coming down and basically having an impact not over the near-term, but the mid-and longer-term. >> he certainly did. the other thing, i looked at the transcript in what jumped out at me is he saying we could get to 4% growth over the medium term. that is pretty striking. we talk to economists all the time you may say no, no, we make it a little more growth right now, but 2% is the track where and because of product to be in labor force. jamie dimon missing economists are wrong we could get 4% growth. maria: you know goldman sachs is out with a report talking about 4% in the atlanta fed came out. now people are speculating about
6:06 am
for rate hikes and the fed in 2018. >> this kind of talk and action from the likes of jamie dimon, one of the great ceos in america regardless of what you think about his politics is critically important because as john has talked about, optimism begets optimism. momentum leads to more momentum and ultimately, these decisions fall in the hands of jamie dimon and if they are optimistic and positive about the direction of policy in this country, that will lead to more spending. it will lead to more job creation. it will lead to even more powerful economic expansion and i think that's why a lot of people are underestimating how fast the economy could grow with the corporate tax reform in the months and years ahead. maria: gap, we also talked about the individual side of the tax
6:07 am
plan. remember he's a new yorker. i won't give it away when he said, but even there he was quite positive. by the way, they have the thing called the jpmorgan is to do plan, which is basically their database. the database about what individuals are pending, what they're making, how much money is going in, how much is going out and what they're spending their money on and when. >> ironwood dakin en masse. the real action you mentioned, and the individual site, and the real action in the tax reform is a go in on the corporate side. when jamie dimon talked about in your interview, which struck me was the international comparison. how much american business has been driven overseas by the disconnect between the 40% tax rate here and a 20%, 15% tax rate in places like europe, ireland and such. what he's talking about about is the playing field is level in
6:08 am
overtime, not overnight. it's not going to happen tomorrow, this quarter or even messier, but over time the leveling of the playing field means more business in the united states. maria: that is why we saw those deals happening. ireland, corporate tax rate fall by 5%. dagen: you questioning jamie dimon company boasted on why corporate tax reform is important and to all the democrats out there who acted like a false facts that you saw across social media, that this is going to hurt more people than it helps. this is what we are talking about. this is how average workers come average americans ultimately feel the benefit of corporate taxes been cut dramatically and put on a level playing field with the rest of the world. they are sharing the wealth. 100 companies giving back
6:09 am
already to their employees in one way shape or form. >> can i make one other point? maybe four times this year instead of three, the fed is doing it because the economy is doing well and that is not necessarily a bad thing for markets. markets don't like when the fed raises interest rate, but if they are doing it because we got a 3% growth rate and inflation running below their goal for years now is finally getting up to their target and that's not necessarily a bad thing for markets or the economy. maria: gap coming you are right. i did ask about risks around the federal reserve unwinding the balance sheet, does the fed risk snappiness economic traction as soon as it starts in addition to taxes and bitcoin. he refused to attack the president's personality as we've been hearing on other networks.
6:10 am
you may remember in november jamie dimon is asked how many years he expects them to be in office and he says, quote, back in november if i had to bet, i would bet three and a half but the democrats have to come up with a reasonable candidate for trump will win again. today he's backing away from that. here is what he tells me now. >> the president has criticized the law. now his skeptics are questioning his mental health. is this something you worry about? >> i don't like the politics to anyone ever. i just don't like it. makes me angry, especially kicking people down. i'm uncomfortable. what i focus on his policy. i'm not going to get into personalities. >> the first business president you were asked recently what she thought it would be. he said another three and half years providing democrats have a
6:11 am
real candidate. you still feel that way? >> that is not my job. my job is to have good public policy done, get the economy growing and help finance a decent stuff like that. maria: so you don't know if he's a one term president or not. >> of course not. maria: d. one around? >> no. trained to ask if he wants to run for president, obviously he said no. another thing he said which will run later on in the program is the fact that democrats have to democrats have to democrats have to come up with a centrist candidate. not an extremist who wants to raise taxes to 80%. not an extremist either all the way raising taxes in huge government. he is looking for a centrist and that is what donald trump has been. >> i think you should listen to
6:12 am
policy, policy, policy appeared you have democrats literally talking down the economy, somehow hoping it's going to fail. jamie dimon has to act didn't speak in the best interest of his employees, his shareholders and has customers and that is what he is doing. it doesn't benefit anybody involved with jamie dimon for jpmorgan. only to stand up for what is right in terms of policy and that's what he's doing. >> he really did. of course we know the policies will include infrastructure and he is pretty clear in terms of having a role in now. jpmorgan is among the financiers of any infrastructure programs we see. back in september he called bitcoin a fraud. we talk about those comments as well and he certainly back track
6:13 am
slightly after we had a conversation about his daughter. watch this. maria: let me ask you about bitcoin. >> which i regret making. you cannot crypto dollars and stuff like that. i see a lucrative one individually. as always but about the governments are going to feel about bitcoin. i had a different opinion. i'm not interested in that much of the subject at all. maria: sir john, he went on to say his daughter bought bitcoin at $11 now she thinks she's a genius. by the way, she obviously is. >> she might be better at speculating in the market and jamie dimon is. he seems to be waffling a little bit on this one. he says on one hand block chain is a really important technology. on the other hand is not that interested in it.
6:14 am
on the other hand a few months ago he says it was a fraud. it's hard to figure out where jamie dimon comes down on it. i happen to think it is very interesting, but in terms of replacing the dollar i don't see how they do it anytime in the future. >> absolutely. i thought you said was pretty adamant. that is one thing i love about jamie dimon. as a straight shooter has not afraid afraid to tell you his opinions. jon hilsenrath, great to see you. we will have my entire exclusive interview later on in the program. we give you a couple, but we've got a lot to come on the interview, not. many more interviews this morning at 36th annual health care conference. i will be speaking at the ceo of merck, ken frazier courtesy of myelin, have airbrushed from the ceo celgene, mark ailes in a sea of quest diagnostics.
6:15 am
also next our therapeutic ceos here as well. big three hours ahead. you don't want to miss a moment of it. we will be right back.
6:16 am
the day after chemo might mean a trip back to the doctor's office, just for a shot. but why go back there, when you can stay home with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. neulasta helps reduce infection risk by boosting your white blood cell count, which strengthens your immune system. in a key study, neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. applied the day of chemo, neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the next day. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to neulasta or neupogen (filgrastim). ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries, and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur.
6:17 am
the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache. so why go back there? if you'd rather be home, ask your doctor about neulasta onpro. they cahow many of 'em?e, sir! we don't know. dozens. all right! let's teach these freaks some manners! good luck out there, captain! thanks! but i don't need luck, i have skills... i don't have my keys. (on intercom) all hands. we are looking for the captain's keys again. they are on a silver carabiner. oh, this is bad. as long as people misplace their keys, you can count on geico saving folks money. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. maria: welcome back at a powerful storm causing mandatory evacuations. good morning to you. >> good morning, maria. talkin bout california where you
6:18 am
are. potential mudslides and flash flooding forcing people to leave their homes in areas charred by those massive wildfires in california. several inches of rain expected from the first major storm in the golden state. well, breaking moments ago, small businesses losing optimism. the national federation of independent businesses since its optimism index fell just over 2.5 points last month. one of 4.9. the group says overall business confidence did in iraq in 2016 thanks to a pro-business policy about washington like tax reform. the second in the latest company promising to share the benefits of any tax reform law with their employees. raising the corporate match for its 401(k) plan comes a 5% of salary up from 3% of the whole salary would take effect in late february. boeing, at&t and wells fargo among the other companies
6:19 am
passing along benefits of the corporate tax rate to employees and as of last night, 100 companies in this country had given their employees at least $1000 bonus or more and they were telling their employees this is because of tax reform. companies are sharing the wealth. dagen: they really are. it's extraordinary how many companies have done this already. we are seeing after tax reform is surely saying that that is one on the whole list of companies trying to give back to actually acknowledge that we are saving money here and we want to pass it on. >> a lot of these are just a one-time bonuses. 300,000 people alone getting thousand dollar bonuses because of the action of comcast and at&t. this is just the beginning of what we can see because ultimately we want higher wages in this country. we want more, better jobs in this country and the tax reform
6:20 am
could certainly lead to this. by the way, with the 401(k) match, that is free money for individuals. it might not be a bonus in your hand or salary, but one way of compensating employees and noting after the financial crisis, companies started massively cutting these 401(k) matches to save cash but this is a way of getting that back to the people who matter the most amount of the workers. maria: some of the bonuses they wanted to give 17 rather than eight team because they are losing deductions and the ability to deduct. you see that moved up to 17. on the 401(k), you and i are the old school. the second we got a job, it's worked out. dagen: and joining a party. i was 22 when i started my
6:21 am
401(k). maria: we haven't spoken about this, but we speak about this all the time that it's such an important thing to do. the one to make sure we pass that onto our viewers. take a break. we've got a lot to come. live from san francisco this morning, i was helping patients in treatment and recovery and help him late in their demanding workload. we've got it right here. stay with us. how do you win at business? stay at la quinta. where we're changing with stylish make-overs. then at your next meeting, set your seat height to its maximum level. bravo, tall meeting man. start winning today. book now at

6:23 am
6:24 am
maria: welcome back to the future menace and for many patients given access to adopt there is half the battle. telemedicine helps connect patients with health care professionals to the internet. the need is only growing paid an annual survey from the business group found that 96% of employers plan to make telemedicine available to employees as possible. joining us now to 36 and the
6:25 am
jpmorgan health care conference in san francisco is in touch how ceo joe devito. thanks for joining us. this is an important trend because people need to be able to see a doctor when they need to see a doctor. tell us about in touch. >> in touch is the leader in high acuity telemedicine. we are able to allow for the shortage of specialists to be mitigated. a lot of regional hospitals don't have access to some of the high specialty care. some of the largest hospitals are putting their services to the regional hospitals. train to tell us about that because of a stroke you have a limited amount of time to get blood to the brain. >> the definition of a stroke is a clock has gone to the brain and is a ticking clock. the faster you can get a blood clotting drug, drug that can get
6:26 am
that caught. unfortunately, specialist and available for don't diagnose the patient quick enough to get into the hospital. we help get neurologist to the patient faster. we can actually get him into the ambulance in some situations to do a diagnosis of the moment they get to the hospital and emergency room there provided therapy. maria: you do the partnership at the hospital? >> yes, we do. the hospital systems are customers. the goal of intouch is to virtualize the health system to where it's necessary. cleveland clinic to a study saying on average patients traveling to the hospital trouble two and half hours round-trip for an eight minute appointment. we are focusing on ways, just like online banking. thinking has really virtualized. it has to change the fact that you deposit into a bunch of things, but it's taken a lot of the hype time, unguided transactions. what we are doing is trying to virtualize care for hospitals.
6:27 am
train to the doctor is lower for doctors not in the room with you. >> you hear a lot about increasing access to health care, reducing cost of health care in improving quality and telemedicine checks on those boxes. maria: you announced plans to acquire true clinics. this is a direct consumer platform developer. what is that partnership do for you? >> is a big leap for us. we partnered throughout the united states and help them for specialty care to emergency rooms but hospitals want to engage consumers to have a virtual front end. there were so many excellent solutions and tell a house that doctors can't have a bunch of different passwords and applications looking for a single platform to develop on. true clinics gives a friend and portal, allowing to virtualize general practitioners in all kinds of specialists. maria: everyone is afraid of amazon. have you see this as it is because you guys cbs getting together at night, and as i'm
6:28 am
getting insurance licenses, and they will start doing that cvs has done so well and having the pharmacy right there come the clinic you are talking about a customer's fingertips. >> a lot of supplies for health care will have a lower cost into health care. amazon is an unbelievable company and we welcome them to help reduce costs. it is not a mystery that health care is not very efficient. and it's expensive. what we are doing is trying to virtualize and leverage specialty care. we look at ourselves like a power grid. if you don't use a physicians time you visit forever. you don't use energy coming to visit forever. they moved the energy to places where it's needed and remove specialty care where it's needed. the same type of methods and new businesses will be made from from amazon to help the supply chain and make it easier to get supplies. maria: there is a revolution going on in health care. i just love it.

6:33 am
probusiness person, the american public is not clambering for more government. they were angry about the great recession, they blamed banks, they blamed washington but aimed at the bureaucracy. maria: more of my exclusive interview. another record-setter yesterday. the dow finished slightly lower as you see there. check tout nasdaq up a third of a percent, 71.57. take a look at this morning's action, futures indicating the market wills open higher today. the momentum continues, dow industrials up and s&p and nasdaq also higher by fraction. in europe this morning, indices higher as well. ftse up a third of a percent. the cac quarante half a percent. japan was the big winner, up two-thirds of 1% overnight.
6:34 am
meanwhile fixing the flaw intel promising to patch the chip issue that left billions of computers vulnerable to hackers when the company plans to roll out that update coming up. and google is being sued, former computer engineer fired over diversity memo is planning to file class action lawsuit against technology giant. more on claims coming up. protecting our children, new features that apple is set to introduce after setting backlash that iphone is addictive. the tide rolled yesterday, alabama captures title in nine years. all the stories coming up this morning, top story this half an hour, investigating the investigators house intelligence committee has launched a probe into possible corruption in the fbi and the justice department, last week committee chairman devin nunes struck a deal with deputy attorney general rod
6:35 am
rosenstein and that includes text messages between peter strock and lisa page. i spoke with south carolina tray gowdy whether or not hillary clinton was put above the law. >> there are a couple of things, you go to strock and page, that's incredibly important. your viewers, want fbi bias free and dispassionate. the other issue is laying bias aside, did the fbi engage in process that we can have confidence in. 2016 was an unusual year, you had one major presidential candidate under investigation and you had the campaign of another presidential campaign under investigation, it's not i
6:36 am
-- illegitimate to ask why did you do it so we can understand the process. that's separate and apart from the bias evidence of at least two fbi agents. maria: you're finally getting documents last week and this document that you've been asking for since august, we know, for example, when you look at the hillary clinton side of things her it manager brian initially said he never deleted anything to the fbi, he told the fbi, i didn't delete anything, then apparently has aha moment and says, i did delete e-mails of hillary clinton after we know that those emails were actually recovered and he gets immunity, so he gets immunity despite the fact that he lied to the fbi, deleted emails and didn't tell anybody that there were these e-mails that existed.
6:37 am
>> well, there were several immunity in the clinton investigation appear that's what oversight are doing together. we are not looking at russia, that's house intel committee but judicial and oversight are looking at things and whether they handled like any other case. maria, quite frankly, i think the doj and fbi would admit to you that they did things in this case that they had never done in other one, that doesn't meet nefarious motive. it could mean this is unusual fact pattern but not illegitimate for us to ask and i have been frankly stunned at how little curiosity my democrat colleagues and how little curiosity some elements of the mainstream media have on decisions that law enforcement agency and top prosecutors have made. you know, this time last year democrats wanted comey prosecuted, remember that? harry reid wanted him
6:38 am
prosecuted. they were furious with the fbi and now when we have a chance to better understand the decisions they made and didn't make, there's a total lack of curiosity on behalf of democrat colleagues which i find stunning. maria: even though we know that james comey leaked confidential information with the whole intention of getting it out to the new york times and getting a special prosecutor in place. >> and that is just one of many questions i would like to ask former director comey, when you wanted special counsel with president trump you leaked things to the media, how about when loretta lynch asked you to refer to it as matter and not investigation, how about the meeting in the tarmac, how about the real decision you took the decision of department of justice and made it yourself in unpress dernted press conference on july the fifth, you didn't leak that to the media and didn't ask for special counsel or special prosecutor back in 2016, so i get that jim comey
6:39 am
had to make a lot of hard decisions, he seemed to make them differently depending on who was in power and that's just one of many questions i think members of congress still have for the former director. maria: will you ask these questions of the former director, what does it look like in terms of who you will be questioning in the months ahead? >> well, we had andy mccabe for a long time the last week we were there. obviously we want to talk to special agent strock and jim baker and, of course, you want to talk to jim comey, my preference is to say the bigger witnesses for the end. we need to talk to everyone who was involved in the drafting of this exoneration memo in may of 2016. think about that for a second, maria, you are drafting exoneration memo before you have interviewed two dozen witnesses and before you interviewed the target of the investigation. maria: that's right. >> i want to talk to comey but i want to talk to him towards the end.
6:40 am
maria: and my thanks to congressman tray gowdy, joining me this morning former assistant director for fbi counterterrorism division terry, terry, good to see you, thanks so much for joining us. what's your take on all of this? >> this is probably the biggest crisis to face the fbi in my lifetime, bigger than watergate, bigger than waco and the reason is it goes to impartiality and ability of the ability to have trust of the public, this is a catastrophic failure and hurts to say that just as much as it hurts to watch this unfold. this is not the fbi that americans expect to see. it's just not what the fbi is. maria: we know that there are plenty of good fbi men and women, a lot, the leadership at the fbi was clearly politicized and clearly had biased and were protecting hillary clinton, it's
6:41 am
clear. >> all indicators are there and what really hurts about that is that the big role of the people at those positions who are in those positions with the fbi is, in fact, that their whole job is to try and protect the people who are doing the work from political interference and in this case that didn't happen. maria: as an american, it doesn't matter whether you're on the right, left, middle, up, down, you need to be able to trust the fbi, the cia, the irs, okay, and we've been let down on all of this and how do you say that you live in a free country, how do you say that you are an american with the freedom that is we all boast about. i want to ask you about the meddling probe because according to sources robert mueller will likely seek interview with president trump in the coming weeks, we don't have a date on that but the meeting could signal that this investigation is nearing its end, what would be appropriate in your view?
6:42 am
when will we hear from special counsel mueller that there's definitively no collusion between this president and the russians because we know that there's been zero evidence about that and yet the media keeps -- asking the question? >> well, it's going to be interesting how robert mueller handles that, he may well not make the pronouncement. he may let that kind of in in own natural made with indictments he has and guilty pleas an let it fail away and that'll be the end of it. it'll be interesting to see what he has to say but clearly from the standpoint today, there isn't any indicater that president trump was involved in any kind of collusion with the russians or russian intelligence. maria: we keep hearing bits of pieces of the hillary clinton investigation and this latest one yesterday showed that the same fbi agent strock and the girlfriend lisa page, she said, it hit and he said, it's in thee
6:43 am
wall street journal, should i go find it? they are admitting that they leaked it to the journal and they are going to find the article and share it with the team. all this leaking. >> i have to tell you it's absolutely outrageous, i just can't imagine this is the fbi that i left and i talked to people in the fbi, i have talk today my former colleagues who used to be in the fbi with beme and we are all scratching our head because anything nothing about any of this makes sense, the kind of decision that is were made, the strategy that was employed and let's face it, think about this, we are talking about a strategy that was made in the office of the deputy director of the fbi. these were not just mistakes, something happened here and there's too many unanswered questions and we have to get to the bottom of it. maria: right, there was a strategy because strock says to girlfriend, well, we need insurance policy, we need an
6:44 am
insurance policy in case trump were to win. so is that insurance policy the russia probe? >> it could very well be that or other chips to fall. we don't know. i love the fbi and would trust my life and have in the past with the people in it but these kinds of things are not supposed to happen and people who get in the middle of this and are responsible for this kind of outcome, we have to have answers for those questions. maria: could it be that they created a whole narrative that there was collusion of trump and russia and using dossier to wiretap them? >> it could well be. we need to have answers to that. maria: absolutely, terry, good to see you, thank you very much, we will be right back. >> thank you.
6:45 am
they appear out of nowhere. my secret visitors. hallucinations and delusions. the unknown parts of living with parkinson's.
6:46 am
what plots they unfold, but only in my mind. over 50% of people with parkinson's will experience hallucinations or delusions during the course of their disease. if your loved one is experiencing these symptoms, talk to your parkinson's specialist. there are treatment options that can help. my visitors should be the ones i want to see.
6:47 am
maria: welcome back, possible fix for bub discovered in some
6:48 am
of intel micro microchips. cheryl: that's right, software fix would be issued in coming days to address the vulnerabilities that have been found in some of intel's microchips, google's discovery of the bugs was made public last week that would potentially allow access to sensitive data within the chip's memory. all mac systems and ios devices were affected by the bug named meltdown inspector but no system breaches have been reported yesterday. 90% of processors and products from the past five years would be passed within a week. they are acting weekly. intel up about 22%. well, a former google software engineer filing a lawsuit against the company for discrimination. james demoore fired last year
6:49 am
after he wrote controversial e-mail about gender, last night he spoke with our own charles payne. >> there's continued harassment and career sabotage of anyone that expresses a conservative viewpoint and there's constant shaming and attacks against white men within silicon valley, it's really hurting google's employees, google and everyone that uses google's products. cheryl: well, shares of google parent alphabet up 35% from just a year ago. and apple says that they're going to roll out improved parental controls in a future iphone update, this is coming after two major public investors writing letter limiting time that kids are spending on phone. the investors want to see features more control over screen time and better monitoring, of course, parents
6:50 am

6:55 am
jared: maria, it was a dream come tool, what unbelievable ending. a 3-point gain that ends in overtime, you can't ask for much better than that in a national championship, neighboring states, georgia drew first blood against alabama, bulldogs take a big bite of 13-0 in first half, meanwhile alabama quarterback got benched at half time, true freshman from hawaii. he gets the cremson tide on the board. watch this. pretty play, he perfectly threads the needle caught by calvin, caught by freshman, 20-20. deadlock on the score board and remain that way in overtime because of 36-yard miss field goal attempt, overtime georgia takes a lead on field goal after
6:56 am
11-yard sack, watch this, alabama's freshman quarterback makes mistake, he redeems himself, watch what he does on next play. 41-yard game winning touchdown to smith, bang, right in the end zone. victory for alabama, roll tide, 26-23, head coach for the most national titles with 6. before the game president trump walked on the field at mercedes benz stadium, as he was greeted by cheers and some boos, the president stood near the 40-yard line flanked by members of the u.s. military as he stood for the national anthem sang parts of the song as well and president trump left the game before the second half. kind of sort of the georgia bulldogs, they did best impression of proteam and poll cons blew game and special night on display. the president updated cover photo on twitter, now this,
6:57 am
standing during the national anthem last night at the national title game. did you see what alabama center bradley did after the game, pulled a ring out from alabama champion newspaper, got down on a nigh and proposed to his girlfriend. look at that right on the field and, yes, she said, yes. what a happy night for alabama. maria: i love that and i love the fact that the president changed his twitter page photo, that's a beautiful photo. jared: great to see him at the game. too bad he didn't see the entire one. what a classic. maria: catch jared fox news headlines 24/7, siriusxm 115. but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor.
6:58 am
he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for 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. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you.

7:03 am
joining us from new york studio fox business network's dagen mcdowell, dagen, good morning to you. dagen: good morning, maria, let's get back to the jamie dimon interview. there really isn't anything that you didn't cover with him. maria: we talked about the economy, the fed, we kicked it off with the health care conference, dagen, you know this is the most well-attended conference of all conferences an set it is tone for investing in the sector and al sets the tone for deal-making, key insights on where the industry is headed. the conference has exploded in size over its 36 years. now 10,000 people are here, i sat down exclusively with jpmorgan chase, chairman and ceo jamie dimon and weighed in on anything and telling me he's bullish on the year ahead and consistent dividends and investing in business. i started off about the conference and asked him what drive it is popularity of this health care conference.
7:04 am
>> amazing conference, 10,000 people here now. almost 2,000 individual meetings, i think for the american public the beauty of it, it was ten companies and now it's almost 500 and the market cap was 10 billion, the total is 5.6 trillion, it's the beauty of free enterprise, more ideas, that to me is an uplifting thing. maria: yeah, you are seeing companies talking about new innovations as well as do deals and as you know, live this conference and congratulations to you and the bank, jpmorgan, largest bank, one and a third trillion in adopt dpo sit, millions in credit cards, how would you characterize what you're seeing from business lines, broad economy? >> from business lines and other data, the united states is growing at 2% a clear, clearly accelerating and you see how in
7:05 am
household incomes and you see in wages and in jobs, you see in capital investment and, of course, it's helping the fact that the rest to have world is growing too. there's small negatives but the american economy looks like it's strengthening. maria: why? what's behind it? >> we were growing slow for a long time, animal spirits are back, markets are higher, so things are -- they just happen slower and later. i think you see more people coming back to the workforce, you are going to start to see wage increases like we want. a year from now my guess people will be talk about inflation but we want wages to go up for average american and so confidence is up, the rest of the world is surprising people too. maria: there was a lot of anticipation of tax legislation as well, that's signed into law. what do you feel is the impact of this? when you talk about 21% corporate rate versus all the way down from close to 40%, that's a big deal. >> that's a big deal.
7:06 am
maria: what's the impact? >> one of the mistakes that people make is impact tomorrow will have effect and i'm surprised that people say uncompetitive tax rate will be good for america. we were at 40%, now most of the world is 20% and we were 40%. i look at competitive taxes for business, it's a bad idea and by most measures it's driven capital, i don't ever seas, pricewater house, 5,000 company that is would have been headquartered here are overseas. it was a huge disadvantage. you will see companies doing things in short run like increasing wages and a bunch of stuff like that and bonuses and we may do something and announce sometime later but over time that retain capital will be use today grow businesses r&d, higher people, wages, competition and over time they'll be very good for
7:07 am
america. maria: you talked about some of the savings being competed away because you will lower costs as a result of that. how much would be competed away and what are you planning jordanians companies paying a thousand dollar checks, is that something you would consider? >> we will consider a whole bunch of different things but help accelerate growth in america like small businesses, like branches, like affordable housing, things like that which have double effect, so we are thinking through a bunch of ideas on how we could spend money but the fact is that competitive tax system is good for america and it will -- some of it will be competed away in very competitive environment so one-time benefit and not one-time it'll go up and be compete addway. people should remember, when we say that, that means better price to go consumers, more innovation, more r&d or higher wages, that's what beats it away. that's exactly what americans want. maria: what about the rollback in regulations, this is a really big deal for your company and the entire industry and
7:08 am
corporate america in general, you see all the changes, new people in different agencies, regulations coming down, what kind of impact has that had and what does that mean for your cost basis going forward? >> i again, i talk about it differently, there's no question -- i'm not talking banks, the regulations was friction cost in society and got worse and worse and worse pped -- in other industries, media, mining, telecom we have seen a benefit. but the american public should think of it as a vast bureaucracy which is like sand in the engine and to reduce some of that, not roll back good regulations, not go back to good-old times, we need to protect consumers, but, bureaucracy is bureaucracy and the american public knows when they go to dmv, veterans know when they go to va and that's what's been happening more in the united states and they give you one example, particularly trying to find bad, 12 years on
7:09 am
average to approve bridge in america. a bridge that connects new jersey, 12 years and already existing bridge that was falling down and so we've lost some capability and if we can accelerate some of the things we will have infrastructure in place much faster. there's an article in the paper today, small company that did was up state new york, 5,000 ruilings and regulations, they don't want to kill with bad apple, one day take a deep breath and create more efficient and properly regulate and not allow every agency, every state and every city to put rules on top of rules. maria: not to mention, much of the expenses at corporates has been going to hiring lawyers and compliance experts and all of this, that has to be good for the bottom line. >> yeah, that's why you had slow
7:10 am
growth, all the money being used for something that does not create productivity. as a country do a better job balancing those two. maria: are you more poised to use extra savings from the tax plan and rollback in regulations to increase dividend, to buy back stock and to create new jobs, invest in the business, what are you more poised to do? >> our dividend will go up as it has and be steady and secure, the primary thing that jpmorgan chase is to use capital to grow, that is why we are here. that's investing communities, countries, going to new countries around the world, opening new branches, we have opened 20 commercial blanking in the last 5 or 10 years, regulators have wanted banks to hold their capital, a lot of the capital retained for regulatory purposes, it have not used for growth purposes and for some legitimate reasons, banks were use to go grow. in the short-run, you can't turn
7:11 am
it on and off, some will do buy back, under the right circumstances over time capital will be use today grow businesses. maria: does this eventually translated to job, do you think? >> absolutely. maria: how, connect the dots? >> if we go to new cities and new states, we will be adding 10 to 12 people a branch and if we are successful a company with innovation, on the internet, mobile bank or something like that, we have to add people in digital. we have added thousands of people in digital, ai to serve our clients, at least ultimately jobs, the number one thing for jobs is a healthy vibrant economy and so, you know, competitive tax system, proper smart regulation but cutting some bureaucracy, infrastructure, we have to have to fix that, inner city school education, half of the kids don't graduate. that's not good for productivity, that's not good for opportunity, that's not good for wages and how american feels
7:12 am
about itself and we have to fix some of these problems. maria: i see some of the technology that you have put in the branches, you have been spending a lot on technology over the years, also cyber, a couple of years ago i remember you say to go me, at some point jp will spend a billion dollars on cyber. >> we are at 700 today or something like that. we are well protected but cyber ask a big deal. we will do whatever we have to do. you to protect yourself and protect your clients, et cetera, we need to work more with the government to get cyber done but technologies, again, i look at table, a couple knee projects they may not work but you can do more, buying things, we will have self-directed investing soon, so we great teams of doing it and, of course, the mesh public wants it. maria: some people say there's going to be more robots an people working at banks, working
7:13 am
in corporate america in general, i know that you have been using ai, how do you use ai and how do you calm people down to say, okay, my job is going to be replaced by a robot? >> technology is the greatest thing that happened to mankind, but technology has been -- almost 20 million, back-breaking hard work, it's not 20 million people went other things in society. technology is a great thing, it's why my daughter's kids will live 100, 120, the air is better and everything is safer, education is better, we can do more things online. it's a wonderful thing. there are some negatives. that's always been true. when car came along, the horse and buggy died. business and government in collaboration to help people who are displaced, we should do that. training, relocation, income assistance but for god sake don't stop technology, some to have jobs are back-breaking jobs
7:14 am
and you always have to have human element, people involved in analysis, you have to have people who need advisers that technology can't do. maria: you have always been involved and supporting education in a big way to make sure that the skill sets are where they need to be, what kind of 2018 are you looking for? >> for companies or -- maria: company? >> i can't talk about that but the economy is doing quite well, and so obviously that affects us dramatically and i'm proud that we have things coming out and growing and expand for our clients. maria: i know that you can't talk about specifics in terms of what you're expecting, broadly speaking, we hit dow 25,000, you've always had a great head for markets, does that feel like it's unjustified or should be here? >> first of all as business person, build product people and i don't worry that much about stock prices, whether change to
7:15 am
jdp, no different than restaurant, if you have a snowy week, it's bad snowy week, the way to look at the markets sometimes is if we have a couple years of good growth and looks like that may be true, i'm not predicting that, that could justify what you see in the market, lower spreads, lower volatility. if you have depression tomorrow, great recession, the stock market is too high, but the fact is the stock market is a reflection of all of the people's expectations. maria: more of my interview with jamie dimon at 8:00 a.m. eastern. stay with us. we will be right back. e! make a u-turn... u-turn? recalculating... man, we are never gonna breed. just give it a second. you will arrive in 92 days.

politics or conflicts, you can ask this guy, end quote, maria.

maria: welcome back, battling america's opioid crisis, 91 americans die every day from opioid overdoes according to cdc, annual economic burden of drug misuse costs the u.s. economy 7 and a half billion dollars but new drug is aim to go deliver less addictive pain reliever without the buzz, the company planning to file for fda approval of the drug by april. we want to talk about as well as this company's work on cancer, joining us right now ceo, howard. >> thank you so much for having me. maria: you are doing so much not
7:25 am
just with opioids but cancer treatment as well. let's talk about what's going on with opioid. obviously your company has done incredibly well, the stock is doing incredibly well partly for both of those stories. >> correct. maria: what are you doing on opioids first? >> if you look at the current opioid drugs, many of them go back to civil war, morphine goes to civil war and oxycodone to world war i. we invented a new medicine, the opioid molecule, it gets into the brain slowly and because of that it doesn't induce the chemical that make people high, patients can take the drug and get excellent pain relief and not get high and therefore not get addicted to it. maria: yeah, because the addiction is incredible. what happens with the use of opioid, people take them and just keep wanting more? >> there's a great desire to take more. they take the opioids, they get high, the high goes away rather quickly and then they want to take more and that reinforcing
7:26 am
behavior is what drive it is process. maria: you filed with the fda, how would you characterize, are you seeing a quicker approval process with the new team in place? >> we have fast-track status for this medicine so that's a good thing to start with but overall the fda's -- over all the fda has been working with us closely and we have a great relationship with them and we are hopeful that we can bring the drug to market fairly soon. maria: yeah, we were talking about the opioid crisis buttia -- but i also want to talk about the cancer and talk to us where we are on fight against cancer. >> we are working in the field of cancer immuno therapy, if you can harness the body to fight own cancer, that's the way of the future in cancer care. maria: makes the drugs work better? >> what it does is it allowed --
7:27 am
stimulate it is body's system and allow it is body to grow its own cancer-killing cells in the tumor and has profound effect. i will give you an example, think about this, we have a patient, a woman who had advanced lung cancer, very bad condition, tumors throughout entire body, after a few months of therapy with adivo and nektar's medicine the patient has no tumors, can you imagine going to your family saying, listen, my tumors are gone, it's a wonderful thing. maria: i'm not speaking out of turn because i know dagen mcdowell has talked about this, how can you get your hands on this drug right now? >> well, look, we have a number of clinical trials, more programs that put in place i think hopefully patient who is need the drug can get -- enter into clinical trials.
7:28 am
maria: real quick, your market value is at $9 billion, 400% stock price rally. >> good result. maria: do you need to get scaled or partner up or do a deal with somebody to get even stronger and better at getting the drugs out in. >> well, i think there's lots of potential, it's a good question because there's lots of potential for this medicine, there's a lot of different cancers, it's worked well in kidney cancer, it's worked well in skin cancer, it's worked well as we just said in lung cancer and i would expect it to work in a number of other cancers, so, yes, it does help to have a lot of power behind it and scale up and build an organization that'll do that but we have excellent collaboration and together we are developing this drug and i'm very hopeful about the results. maria: howard, we are hopeful as well and we are rooting on that score. coming up new year, new agenda, quest diagnostic ceo is with us

8:35 am
his skeptics are questioning his mental health is this something that you worried about in. >> i don't like the politics the people insulting each other at all from anyone. ever, i just don't like it makes me kind of angry particularly when you have kicking people down all that i am uncomfortable i focus on policy, policy, policy, policy, policy, i am not getting personalities. >> joining me right now chairman ceo of merck ken frazier won a focus on policy good to see you. >> always a pleasure to be hern. >> thank you so much for joining us we were talking about the president agenda, you actually resigned from president trump's manufacturing council last year in wake of the protests that turned violent in charlottesville virginia when you spoken with the president when does in our relationship. >> we want to work on congressional and administration side to do what is best for patients going forward what is important, is
8:36 am
we are at a really important juncture in science, great new products coming to market, the administration through scott gottlieb fda commissioner doing things to get products to people who need them quicker. >> so he is moving products faster. >> absolutely including proportionally generic products that is what creates the price competition that drives down health care costs. >> great point, ken that is what i want to ask you about, in terms of growth, in terms of pricing two of the biggest issues, in your industry right now what are you expecting this year. >> i think first of all, people have to look at facts, last year, pricing for a branded excuse me branded products increased 3.5% slowest growth in many, many years the challenge is while the rebates that are intensively negotiated between pharmaceutical companies and people in supply chain insurance are increasing, by the way, nearly doubled between 2013 and 2015. the problem is the cost to the
8:37 am
patient at the counter is increasing. at a much faster rate. >> why? >> so we have well we have situation right now, where the rebates that are being negotiated are not being passed through which is different with respect to to for example in net wok hospitalization negotiated savings passed on we have o incongruous situation not getting the benefit of negotiated discount prices not increasing, the cost the co-pay the coinsurance for patients are increasing. >> this is really important point that you are making thank you for explaining it so well for our viewers let me ask you about two incredible franchises you have the diabetes franchise with genuvia cancer oncology where are we in fight against cancer number one tell us what your trying to affect there. >> hopefully time fight against karening society put
8:38 am
out data showing death rate from cancer declined by 25% since 1991. a large part of that is the effective treatments that we have, the kinds of presighings treatment get to right patient lung cancer colorectal cancer breast cancer prostate cancer this is foundational in treatment of cancer only product approved first line that is for newly diagnosed lung cancer patients, the outcomes that we have as monotherapy in combination with chemo have been incredible. >> you've got an incredible performance with this drug, people want to know if you need to make that business bigger you've got a tax plan here, putting more money in your pockets in terms of corporate, are you going to use that money to do a deal this year. >> let me say that i think the most important thing about the tax plan is it puts american companies including american pharmaceutical companies on an even-playing field with our outside u.s. competition.
8:39 am
>> you have been talking about this for years. >> that is really important, with respect to to the money can be repatriated at reasonable rates, i don't think it is going to change our strategy on m&a on business development, we have always been a company that is look f looking for good science, that would with allow to us innovate here i don't think that that is really going to change our strategy because you know before in united states we had access to enough capital to do kinds of deals looking for. >> that is fair point the last time we spoke in environment biotechs were soaring i remember you and i joking how expensive biotechs had become, now, they have come down a bit, is it now a better time to acquire a biotech make that oncology business bigger so that we are going to look at it on case-by-case basis we announced acquisition of small biotech has promising medicine oncology we will continue to look for those opportunities,
8:40 am
but we want a financially disciplined way what does that mean. >> valuation have to be consistent with vague long term value for shareholders, if you i don't ever pay for asset prett hyard to mak money on. >> it how canou not overpay prices up significantly rht now. >> i think its a case-by-se basis, with tt particar deal we found a good opportunity we also had a great deal last year with astrazeneca for a drug proved for ovarian cancer under review for breast cancer metastatic breast cancer responsible for both we paid 1.5 medicine you will front three quarters tied to approval those are deals we think create value for shareholders. >> what a are you doing about going off patent is there a replacement can take place of this diabetes drubbing. >> -- diabetes drug. >> -- we got approval for a
8:41 am
drugging in combination with this as we look forward looking to depending on outcome studies how field develops we believe that drug in combination with genuvia will will he important diabetes is a very important cost driver so for the system we are looking forward to that combination helping us. and beyond that, will continue to grow, our are business continues to grow we are really excited about having a vaccine for pneumonia lots in the pipeline. >> what are you looking for in terms of 2018 what year would you expect. >> we haven't given formal guidance let me me say this is we faced headwinds with patent expirations i believe merck will grow in 201 despite those things. >> in terms of growth in the world, that is also something to pay attention to your all over the world these are important markets outside united states as well, so where is the highlight outside of the u.s. >> i have to say our business outside united states grew
8:42 am
tremendously last year. and i think markets like china, are really important markets going forward for them. >> let me ask you about the amazon effect amazon reportedly exploring getting into prescription drug business, already obviously secured you pharmacy licenses more than a dozen states is amazon new company to worry about within health care. >> well, we are in the business of inventing new drugs, composition of matter, that is the distribution side of the business. >> so helpful to you -- >> it could be helpful depending on how it patrols out i think the critical issue here is the one we talked about before, how do we get more efficiency in distribution system how do we pass those efficiencies to patients so they enjoy the savings and find medicines more affordable. >> i got to tell you in talking about the international business, and all the money overseas, i was quite surprised by repatriation rate of 15 1/2%, when all said and done we talked about 10%, below 10%, then comes out 15 1/2% do you
8:43 am
think that is enough to get companies to move money back to u.s.? >> i think it is, i think first of all, the way law is written you are going to all ex-u.s. assets deemed repatriated reasonable we can take unreadmitted earns outside united states bring back putted to use in america creating jobs, new opportunities for innovation. >> what is most important for investors to consider about merck knowing that they are worried about patented expiration looking at growth wondering where growth comings next couple years. >> i would say four strong pillars of growth oncology, beyond oncology, we also have a vaccines business that is growing tremendously, we have a lot of important things going are on in specialty, in neuroscience, as well as importantly things like ant biotic research a fast-growing
8:44 am
business billion dollars last quarter exciting things going on at merck. >> animal health people pay 77 for in it in terms of of neuroscience last we spoke you said if you live to 65, there is a what fwhoons one in nine chance having alzheimer's disease if you get to be 58 one in three chance a disease that is going to be crippling to this country soon if we don't have a disease modifying agent we will be spending almost a trillion dollars on alzheimer's disease alone. >> you are making headway. >> we have late stage study we are very helpful for our base inhibitor hoping we can veev intervene early enough. >> we will be right back. when e in the middle of the night. hold on dad... liberty did what? yeah, liberty mutual 24-hour roadside assistance helped him to fix his flat so he could get home safely. my dad says our insurance doesn't have that.
