6:01 am
trump meeting with jinping in g20. the comments sending shock waves throughout oil markets this morning, crude oil down 7% yesterday, we are seeing a bit of a rebounded this morning, we will check that out as well. coming up there's oil this morning at 54 at any time 27 with gain of 1 and a half percent. staying put. mark zuckerberg speaking out, he says he will not step down despite controversy around him and the company, the fallout coming up. minus one day for turkey day. we have everything you need to know before heading out the door including the forecast for the macy's day parade. all the stories and joining know break it all down dagen mcdowell, pwc partner mitch roschelle and max jonas max ferris, good to see
6:02 am
you. >> thanks for having me. dagen: i asked mitch, is the selloff going to continue and i think -- >> i think that was a yes. dagen: answer might surprise you. >> uninspiring. maria: what do you mean? >> it could continue and i think the thing that everybody will look at is how retail sales go this week, i'm not talking about reported sales from earnings, i'm talking about the shopping going on and looks like the consumer is backing off, that could cause a massive market selloff. maria: a lot riding on black friday, dagen, a lot riding on fourth quarter in terms of consumer activity. dagen: what rattled investors yesterday is the selloff was so broad-based. bitcoin keeps tumbling but oil and gas stocks, retailers, we were reporting target's stocks, target stocks fell 11% and a lot
6:03 am
of it was the cost in its supply chain are going up and also upward laborer price pressure, so that was another thing and that kind of ropes in the idea of what's going on with trade in terms of pushing prices up for the companies. maria: really important indicater to look at. when you look at oil, jonas, does it tell us the global economy has slowed down? >> it hasn't slowed down. we are guilty of trying the news and running out of air and people use news to gamble. it doesn't mean there are huge signs of global slowdown. they are betting it's in 6 to 12 months. to me the trigger was when rates got raised a quarter percent. we are going to go back to normal 5% rate. that i think scared a lot of investors more than all of the other stuff kicking in the
6:04 am
background, tariffs. that triggered it, that led to volatility, every time rates -- mortgages got to like 5% on 30-year and that was causing trouble in housing market. it was real and cause real problems for people. the market go back up and rates go back, now we broke through that, rates are back down near 3 and the market is still going down. i think at this point -- wow, this could be not just 10%, the next 20, 30, 40 percenter. our 10-year bull market is over and ended in tech stocks two months ago. maria: it gives you alternative to stock, why not shift money out of stocks and bo higher yield and fixed income? >> the 2-year and 10-year, less than half percent. there isn't a lot there and that gives people the fear that the yield curve could invert which is sign of recession, i don't know why i'm so gloom and doom this morning. dagen: it's not gloom and doom. that's the bigger question that
6:05 am
we can get into, is this market route deep enough and steep enough to actually cause a recession. i know stephanie is on later in the morning, something that she's talked about that a massive washout in assets across the board could actually in terms of hammering confidence among corporations and individuals and reducing people's wealth, essentially that it could cause a recession. >> happened in the dot com bubble. maria: what we have been seeing in a number of days recently the market opens up and we see a pretty good situation in the early hours of trading and then by the close we are down. this morning, stocks are rebounding, take a look at futures up 75 points right now after the selloff yesterday, reversal after turbulent day for the markets yesterday where the dow lost 2 and a quarter percent. with the 500-point decline yesterday it wiped out all of the gains in 2018. now the market is negative this year.
6:06 am
technology stocks taking beating, alphabet slipping in bare market territory. the others are already there. iphone is -- apple is cutting iphone production. the president weighed in specifically on the technology route, watch this. >> i think we are doing great. i mean, as a country we are doing great. unemployment is at record low, you look at all of the different statistics, i think your tech stocks have some problems but that'll come back. maria: you know, the press asks the president about the market, i don't know why he would discuss specifically tech stocks in terms of what's behind the market. >> i think he's right when talking about interest rates going up too fast. it was the interest rates, the federal reserve is living in fantasy land as many americans that 5% is the normal interest rate level. that is not the normal interest rate level anymore, it is maybe, maybe 2 and a half percent and never going to be 5 in japan again, no one is asking to go
6:07 am
back to 5 there. the federal reserve think ifs we don't go to 5% some day we will have inflation in the 70's. they would argue about that for hours if you gave them -- trump know that is real estate is priced for lower rates right now. you go to 5% fast it'll cause a problem. there's a problem with tech stocks. that's real. overpaying for growth, it is a limitless growth rate in advertising and what it takes to get to that growth and advertising is the problem with facebook. what were they -- dagen: sleazy things to get to that advertising growth rate. >> the gross not going to be there because they've dominated the whole thing. it's a separate problem with interest rates. the stocks were priced for growth and not ending and that's why apple is down 25% almost even though numbers are good right now in the economy but the future is looking dicey on
6:08 am
profit margins in tech and interest rates with the real economy. maria: that brings me back to consumer, if apple is down as much as it is is that indicating about consumer, is that the problem? >> so it's global consumers and let's remember what drove this market up to begin with at the beginning was synchronized global growth and now we are seeing synchronized global slowdown, not recession but the fear that the world economy is slowing down and many american companies are are holding upon foreign consumers and freaking out some of the -- dagen: that's why greg writes column in wall street journal, trouble market sound alarms, he's talking about broad selloff and array of asset classes as we have seen jump bonds, for example, jump bonds were trending down and selling off as treasuring yields were going
6:09 am
higher and treasuries were selling off but the selloff and jump has continued and even as -- as yields and longer-term interest rates stabilize, that's a fine that there could be trouble ahead. but he also notes it's the slow and global economy, this is greg, but it's also the reduction not just in higher interest rates but the reduction in the balance sheet at the federal reserve, pulling back the unprecedented monetary stimulus and this is happening while the european central bank is halting buyingback program this year and something stephanie said would really whack maw views moving into the new year, maybe it's happening a little bit earlier. maria: we will get her to talk more about that, big story and unknown about china, the trade story, top editorial in the journal this morning, the trade canary, the chances of significant u.s. growth slowdown can no longer be ruled out.
6:10 am
we hope someone at the white house is listening to this trade canary, chances of a deal seem slim. national economic council director larry kudlow highlighted requirements for deal with china. watch. >> any deal between the two countries has got to be anqueste ip theft, it's got to include changes in ownership, stop the force transfer of technology, it's got to go to zero tariffs and zero nontariff areas and has to have enforceability, and more than what we have seen so far. maria: does the administration stick to its gun and make sure china changes behavior and risk uncertainty and disruption in the market? >> i think so because i don't think trump thinks it's
6:11 am
disrupting the market and i think he's right. look, the market could be disrupted by any kind of story. there was crashes over the soviet debt default in the 90's, there was a taxi cab default, anything can trigger investors to panic, as far as economic behavior, it's almost up there with 70's inflation, we don't really know what having relatively low tariff rate is going to do. that was during the depression, relatively low rate -- could be there permanently. all of europe has value added taxes that are higher than tariffs. maria: doesn't the market want a deal? if we were to get a deal with china, doesn't that trigger a big rally? >> i mean, the deal couldn't be too favored to one stock because it would hurt foreign stocks which have been lousy compared to ours. i think the panic is there and i think there's other issues going on that are beyond tariffs, again, could trigger fear but
6:12 am
that's -- it's almost irrational, i don't think that there's that much weight from the tariffs at this point. >> their reforms in china to sort of get some of their crazy lending under control and that is, you know, contributing amongst other things to economy slowing down. they are getting their own house in order there and that could -- that -- there's good news in that for the global economy just in the interim it's not great news. dagen: i just want to add really quickly, one thing -- in terms of just policy, the tariffs and some of the trade policy out of the white house it's made washington and the regulatory environment more swampier, swampier, not less swampy which is what the president ran on and it doesn't make long-term sense to complicate doing business here in the united states which is what it's doing. maria: i wonder when the new congress start with the democrats in the majority and the house, if that mixes into the china story?
6:13 am
what will they want the president to do? will they put pressure on him to do a deal? >> well, they have to ratify the nafta 2.0. maria: that's right. >> we will see how they feel about trade in general. dagen: nancy pelosi if she wanted she could throw a wrench into that and introduce a rule assuming she's house spauk the other throw the wrench. maria: move the markets further. they want a deal and they are expecting a deal. dagen: do they care democrats about the american people, about the health of the economy or do they care about themselves and just going after trump, antitrump, antitrump. >> when was free trade a democrat, though, this was half their policy at one point. unions wanted to not outsource jobs, i don't think they are going to we have -- we have to make it better for china, i don't see that coming either. maria: all right, we will take a short break, when we come back, a lot to talk about this morning, president trump standing with saudi arabia, his comments sparking controversy
6:14 am
and taking a toll on the oil market, we will check that out when we come back, earnings still slowing, you see deere on the screen. busiest travel day yet, very latest on traffic, the weather and all of that coming up straight ahead right here. i just got my ancestrydna results: 74% italian. and i found out that i'm from the big toe of that sexy italian boot!

coming upstanding with saudi arabia, oil takes a hit after president trump emphasizes support for the kingdom. mark zuckerberg says there's no plans for him to step down, back in a minute with that.
6:20 am
since my dvt blood clot i was thinking... could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot... almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. 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.
6:21 am
tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis.
6:22 am
maria: welcome back, looking at bit of a bounce-back this morning after yesterday's 500-point selloff, better than 90 points, a third of a percent. s&p also half percent and nasdaq up 47 points right now, 3 quarters of 1% on the hills of the sharp decline yesterday.
6:23 am
meanwhile president trump is standing firm in his support of saudi arabia despite the murder of washington post columnist jamal khashoggi. cheryl casone with more on that, good morning to you. cheryl: good morning, maria, a lot developing on the story yesterday and throughout the night. president trump is vowing to remain a partner of saudi arabia despite mounting evidence the country's crown prince was behind murder of jamal khashoggi. the white house issued statement to end debate over america's response to the killing saying it's impossible whether to know that crowns prince ordered it, speaking to reporters yesterday before he left the white house, mr. trump made financial argument for retaining the u.s.-saudi relationship. >> right now we have oil prices in great shape, i'm not going to destroy the world economy and i'm not going to destroy the economy for our country by being foolish with saudi arabia. cheryl: but the president is facing pressure from democrats and republican who is are calling for a tougher response,
6:24 am
senator lindsey graham tweeted, while saudi arabia is strategic ally the behavior of the crown prince in multiple ways has shown disrespect for the relationship and made him in my view beyond toxic, graham later said that there would be bipartisan support for sanctions against saudi arabia, amid all of the controversy folks, wall street journal is reporting that saudi security officers have tortured, jailed women's rights activists art paf of government campaign, sources telling the journal at least 4 of 18 women's rights activists were tortured, some of them using electric shock and lashing, one woman apparently tried to kill herself. saudi officials says that the kingdom does not use torture. also some economists and military analysts are saying that the numbers that the president used in statement in front of the white house
6:25 am
yesterday in that presser were incredibly inflated. the amount of saudi investment and what it means to the u.s. economy. maria: the news is not stopping, on the one hand you have the article and news of jamal khashoggi and the response and right above it the women being tortured. should there be a tougher response from the u.s. against what's happening in saudi arabia right now? dagen: we need today make it clear that the united states will not standby these human rights abuses and this statement quite frankly lacked a lot of nuance on that and i will quote, rand paul, we are still sitting in the united states don't forget 15 of 19 hijackers of september 11, 2001 were from saudi arabia. rand paul said i'm pretty sure it's saudi arabia first. i'm sure bolton did have a say
6:26 am
in the statement and we have the cia coming out and saying that they had concluded at least as going back in october that jamal khashoggi's killing was ordered by prince mohamed. maria: rand paul in congress want tougher sanctions, want something else done in terms military aid that we give to the saudis, maybe that cut back. cheryl: there's also the issue of iran, do we need to saudis? there's a huge meeting of opec and nonopec meetings in december, some are questioning whether the president's strategy is to come out and defer to the saudis on the issue because he wants them for production cuts in december, make sure oil prices don't jump in extraordinary levels because saudis react to what we are saying. dagen: this is more than business, what happened in the death of journalist, it's got to
6:27 am
be more than financial relationship with another country. maria: they are aligned now. and the saudi government and he was very much aligned with mbs, watch this. >> i believe that saudi arabia will get to the bottom of it but please you have to give us some time until the investigation is done and made public by the government of saudi arabia. maria: jonas, what the prince said that crown prince will be vindicated and exonerated. >> in saudi arabia. maria: in saudi arabia. >> rand paul libs in -- lives in a libertarian fantasy land. now, the reality is, yeah, saudi arabia -- they've been slaughtering people in crazy ways like we haven't done in hundreds of years, they behead people and put bodies -- barbaric, compared to rest of
6:28 am
the middle east it's a pretty safe place and that's one of the problems in the middle east. it started in the 70's with opec. we had to be friendly and now safe country and we learned the problems of taking out evil dictator in iraq leading to more unsafety -- maria: creative. >> trump knows that. he wasn't like let's take out saddam hussein. from an economy point of view and this is horrible what they did, but when you look -- there's more murders to méxico in journalists and turkey than saudi arabia times a hundred. maria: how about russia? >> movie-script way of killing, in russia you get the hanker can have chief and no one knows what happened. maria: we will be talking about this because there's new developments and we want to cover them.
6:29 am

6:33 am
extended into second day of losses with sharp declines. dow and s&p 50 are in negative territory for 2018. both indices down 2% yesterday at the close 550 points lower on the dow. take a look since the close last year, the markets are now negative down 1%, the nasdaq is just holding onto its fractional gain in 2018. in europe this morning, take a look there, money is moving into stocks in european indices as well, ftse is up 49 points, 3 quarters of a percent. cac quarante up 18, up 75 points two-thirds of 1%, overnight in asia here is the story mixed as you can see fractional moves across the board, best performer was hong kong, hang seng index up half percent. fallout over facebook, zuckerberg has no plans to step down as ceo from social media giant and company recent troubles, zuckerberg taking responsibility in an interview on cnn, watch.

6:35 am
rebounded. joining us to talk more about the market meltdown recently and what's happening this morning, distributors president sean, great to see you. >> great to see you. we are seeing in-flows, a lot of the money sitting in t bills, a lot of people feel comfortable sitting it out. if you watch the market, it started -- there's no trend lines. maria: what do you think is going on? >> big rotation from growth to value going on. i think the growth stocks have lead and value is underperformed. if you look at the disparity between growth and value, they call it alligator jaws in wall street, enmutually all of those eventually slam shut and it's gone so long now that there needs to be a severe change in direction or a long trend the other way towards value. >> is that rotation permanent,
6:36 am
though? the big fang names, they are out and everybody is going to focus on the value stocks? >> i think you'll see a trend towards that, they go in cycles, they tend to go back and forth. maria: it was trading at 17 times. >> here is the deal, right, you have been doing this a long time, you remember wal-mart and mcdonalds, great growth names, their growth was challenged just by their size and some of the tech names that's sort of what's going on, you can't continue to grow at the rate forever, what happened with those stocks they plateaued for a while until earnings were able to catch up. >> you're talking late 90's, home depot. today you won't magically avoid the alligator jaw or maybe crocodile, ratios are enough, whatever, to really avoid those growthy stocks -- by the way, they are creeping into everything in etf business. they started putting facebook
6:37 am
into the telecom funds, they changed telecom index. you had a tech fund when you had utility, would have done well if they didn't put facebook. how do you as investor avoid that, etf's are making it more difficult to do it? >> we look at something called free cash flow yield. free clash flow company generates by enterprise value and enterprise value is market cap plus debt, we missed buying, for example, ge which would look like a cheap stock which could continue to go lower because it doesn't screen -- >> but you were talking about going to cash in t bills, that type of thing, the last mini crash, we haven't had a big one, almost 20% after the debt crisis in europe, they've come back so fast, we just saw it after the elections, going into cash, miss
6:38 am
3-day rebounded that takes you market highs and then you to buy back in the stocks and does it again, is that a dangerous -- >> for investors who uses our strategy, a strategy like that, i think they are willing to accept that they might be a little late getting so long as they are not in declines. >> recent slide that came back with the election. >> we were long since february of 2016, so during that volatility the average was never -- [inaudible conversations] >> it did. >> more severe than the last one. >> it is. 200-day versus 150-day, you make less changes and when you make less changes you avoid some really dangerous whip saws and trailing getting back into the market. >> wait for comeback or added growth? >> do a little bit of both if you're in portfolio.
6:39 am
next year, you know, one of the topics is etf's for next year, international and global and i think protection strategies have to be a part of what is in people's portfolios. maria: why do you like those etf's are you seeing recovery -- >> not yet. maria: something changed in backdrop in terms of growth? >> you want to buy what's cheap relative -- maria: you're trading on valuation? >> i did. it's been disastrous for international and global and it's been disastrous for value, those trends can't continue forever. they can continue for a little while longer, but if i'm thinking next 3 to 5 years, i will put money to work in the market and i'm a little bit worried about the growth names, i would be moving portfolios toward large cap value. dagen: real quickly worth noting, analysts are marking down profit estimates with most international exposure much faster than those focused in the united states.
6:40 am
maria: what do you say to that? dagen: international exposure expected to rise but 16 and a half for u.s. company. that's a recent trend. maria: do you think that has to do with china? i'm wondering if it's the emerging markets. >> or the strong dollar. dagen: strong dollar which you talked about for a long time and also global growth in the world. >> the oecd came out this morning and revised downward forecast for the global economic growth, not by 3.7 to 3.5 -- maria: you're telling us to go into global stocks. >> because you want to buy ahead as opposed to behind. you don't want to chase returns, if you're a longer-term investor you want to position portfolio for the long term and what's going to happen. the macro trends on international and global can't continue forever and sooner than later they will turn around.
6:41 am
the catalyst, by the way, the stocks go down before the euphoria is over, right, they tend to be anticipating as markets are as well. they are looking ahead as well. >> i would be incline to go to pendulum strategy. [laughter] >> but i will say unlike 2000 where there was real divergence, small cap was down. you are not going to get such a reward, one of the problems in the market right now is diversification isn't stopping you from losing money. dagen: you know why that is because of the unprecedented monetary stimulus. >> no, it's because of all the unprecedented number of etf's giving money. i am not going to do like i did in the 90's, i have piece of small value, i have this -- maria: a lot of options.
6:42 am
>> doesn't work if everybody does it. if everybody could stop doing it, i would make money again. >> $19 trillion in mutual funds, 3 trillion in etf's but not really all the hot money. we are in the etf business, there is hot money but -- well, for us it's long term and for the bulk of let's say -- maria: i would say it is long term. you don't think it's long term? >> when you look at the holding period of open fund versus etf especially when it's trend or sector, it's one day to 10,000. maria: i agree on specialties and the specific etf's that are real special. you do payers growth -- >> but when you're talking about the specific etf's --
6:43 am
maria: that's different. >> it's hot money. [inaudible conversations] >> it's exposure versus investing. we deal with financial advisers who are building portfolios for the long haul and they are replacing open and mutual funds with etf's for proxies. they cost less. there are people using etf's for quick exposures and getting out but the bulk of the money is long term. maria: 2 and 20 or -- figure it out. [laughter] dagen: 2 and 20. maria: good to see you, happy thanksgiving. great to see you, you were optimistic there, bullish about the markets. >> as my friend sam stovall a bull with a small b and not

maria: big news, throw it all away. that is the message from the center for disease control and prevention. if you have any romaine lettuce,
6:54 am
multistate e coli outbreak, more to talk about that aka dr. mike. >> important story. maria: get rid of all romaine lettuce. >> thanks give asking upon us, we will gather together with families, we will be eating, get rid of all of the romaine letter, whether it's chopped, whole heads, doesn't matter, get rid of it, we don't know the exact source yet. ta t way we go about the process we find people who have e coli outbreaks in multiple states, we ask them questions and so far the common denominator has been romaine lettuce. the e coli is similar to e coli found in outbreak in 2017 of romaine lettuce that was mostly made in canada. why is this scary to us doctors
6:55 am
because e. coli can become infection which leads to kidney failure especially those younger, older and those who have compromised immune system. it's very scary to us doctors. maria: how does it get in the lettuce? >> it's not pleasant to say but lives in intestines of cattle. cattle live near romaine-lettuce producing plant but most people say i will wash the lettuce, it's not a problem, the cdc has done studies. the bacteria stays on. dagen: particularly with somebody has immune system, washing it does not get -- maria: potatoes, whatever is on them, they will never come on. >> that's why i stay away from vegetables. as policy i stay away from
6:56 am
vegetables. [laughter] >> this thanksgiving you i'm giving you a pass, there's no doughnut recall. maria: cdc says more than 3.6 million middle and high school students used e-cigarettes in the past 30 days. vaping devices design today help people quit smoking, that's not happening it doesn't appear? >> one of the stories that i have become incredibly passionate, maria, the product was intentionally -- initially marketed as something to help users quit smoking but the advertisements, the way they went about initially, did not match the idea. so what they ended up doing was getting young people excited with flashy ads, ads of young hip 20-year-olds smoking these or jeweling as they say the pods and they created the pods with fruity flavors so they were tempt to go children and now what we are seeing kids start using them and they turn to traditional smokers and with rates of smoking at all-time low

maria: welcome back. good wednesday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. is it wednesday, november 21s november 21st. your top stories right now, 7:0e east coast. futures indicate a gain of 100 points at the open on the dow jones industrial average, up a half a percent. the s&p is up a half a percent and the nasdaq up 2/3 of 1% right now. this after yesterday's big market meltdown, concerns over trade and big technology weighing on investors yesterday with the dow industrials losing 552 points at the close. with yesterday's declines, the dow and s&p 500 are now in the red for the year.
7:01 am
take a look, they're down 1% in 2018. the nasdaq is essentially flat, about to go negative for the year. the global markets this morning look like this. take a look at european indices, they're downing on the u.s.'s recovery this morning. the cac in paris is up a quarter of a percent and the dax index in germany up 60 points, one calf halonehalf of 1%. hang sang index is up 1/2 of a percent. it has been a tech wreck. the biggest names in the sector in focus after companies like apple, facebook, come under fire. facebook's ceo mark zuckerberg is speaking out about his future at the helm. >> you're not stepping down as chairman? >> that's not the plan. >> that's not the plan. would anything change that? >> i mean, eventually over time. i'm not going to be doing this forever, but i certainly -- i'm not currently thinking about that.
7:02 am
maria: the fallout, plus, fox com planning mass of i've cost cuts we'll have details. top trends heading into the l holiday shopping season coming up, we're expecting it to be a big one on friday. beyond roasted and fried, we're taking a look at different kinds of thanksgiving birds including cheetos and glitter. all those stories coming up this wednesday morning. joining me to break it down, dagen mcdowell, mitch rochell and jonas maxarus is here this morning. good morning, everybody. good to see you. >> that's not the plan. when i hear that, i think of mike tyson, he everyon said eves a plan until you get hit in the face. if for nothing else, he owns more of the voting shares and someone else has got go in and -- maria: he owns the voting
7:03 am
stock. >> he's not going to go at this stage. there's a point he will want to protect his own assets, when is own wealth is declining. it hasn't fallen that far where that's going to happen but it's close and i don't want to like totally bash this company because they do more good than harm still, like most tech companies, especially abroad when they don't have media and they need to communicate. this company did not get enough press attention when the russia story broke because the media was focusing on trump. that was a little bit of the ways they were trying to squeeze money out of the world by people's privacy and that needed more press attention. maria: we're going to talk with lance ulinoff on the subject. i want to find out if you think they've made significant changes at facebook. i don't think so. we'll get into that. market meltdown yesterday, another 500 points, dagen, two days in a row and we ton to see these -- we continue to see worries about growth front and center into 2019 and 2020. dagen: it's global growth.
7:04 am
it's what the federal reserve is doing, not just raising short-term interest rates but also the winddown in this balance sheet that we are really beginning to see the payback in terms of this unprecedented monetary stimulus. i don't think -- i said to start the year, i don't think you know how this plays out until basically there's a washout across the board and you were starting to see that in terms of oil falling, bitcoin falling, junk bonds falling, stocks falling across the board, not just tech companies, but retailers got hit hard yesterday. maria: you have to see a flushing out in order for -- andrew cuomo once said to me, people will go back into the water when they know the shark is dead. i mean, they want to feel like, okay, i've seen the worst of it. dagen: he's clearly a fan of "jaws." >> there was a "jaws 2", you've got to remember. maria: it was pertaining to a different conversation but i think it still flies.
7:05 am
>> it's this fiscal and monetary -- fiscal stimulus, monetary stimulus around the world is being scaled back. it's not just what we're doing in terms of less accommodation. it's going on around the -- maria: maybe. we'll come back with the thanksgiving holiday in a week and-a-half, we'll have another fed meeting and we're going to get another interest rate hike, that's pretty much in the books. let me turn to our top story right now, that is standing firm, mark zuckerberg says he's not going anywhere. he gave an interview in which he commented on the status of chief operating officer sheryl sandberg and his future at the company. >> she is a really important part of this company and is leading a lot of the efforts to address the biggest issues that we have and she's been an important partner for me for 10 years and i'm really proud of the work that we've done together and i hope that we work together for decades more to come. >> so you're not stepping down
7:06 am
as chairman? >> that's not the plan. >> that's not the plan. would anything change that? >> i mean, eventually over time, i mean, i'm not going to be doing this forever. but i certainly -- i'm not currently thinking about that. maria: joining us right now is the upgrade technology columnist, lance ulinoff. your reaction to his comments? >> i'm not surprised. maria: i'm not surprised either. is there a push now, wanting him out? >> there might be. i think that, yes, but i think it would be highly disruptive to the business and in fact even more investors, i don't think it would be a good thing. this is not somebody who is sort of a figurehead and not deeply involved. he's an engineer who knows this product, who obviously built it from the ground up. we have one executive, elliott shraga, i think his name is, he's leaving, the head of policy. he announced he was leaving
7:07 am
before the definers thing broke. that may be it. sheryl sandberg, i think she believed for some time she was going to go but for other reasons. i thought she might pursue a political career or general writing. she doesn't have to do this. but mark zuckerberg relies on her heavily. i think that they have a very close -- when you look at some of the stories that have been written about their relationship in previous years, they're best friends. they're really close. and he relies on her heavily. initially it was to be the adult in the room. now he's an adult too. he gets it. he will never be comfortable on camera. i don't think he's lying about his intentions. but i do think that he is in a little bit of a sort of fight mentality right now that this is a war for the future of his company. dagen: i said this yesterday. this happened back in september. the two co-founders of instagram, the most important growth engine at facebook, left.
7:08 am
and essentially they didn't like the way mark zuckerberg and his cronies were starting to step on their products. they were given a lot of autonomy after it was purchased. now they're gone and it remains to be seen whether, again, what they -- because again, if they can foul things up at facebook, they will. >> look, those people left because they -- because it was about monetization. facebook, mark zuckerberg, they were saying they have to better monetize instagram, what's app, the oculus business. the people who were running it were maybe not so into the idea of it. integrating ads and other commerce opportunities dis the biggest issue for facebook is how they marketed for years that we're just about building a global community. let's all join hands. they're america's largest publisher. they're in the business of making money and harvesting people's most personal information and essentially
7:09 am
selling it. so that -- again, his horse patooyey that comes out of his mind when he gives interviews that doesn't line up with his business. >> you've described other tech businesses like google which is all about selling people's data, their search habits to drive the business which started with the -- don't be evil, that's what google -- maria: which they are evil in some ways. dagen: they knew it was stupid, that's why they dropped it. maria: maybe they shouldn't censor conservative voices. >> facebook is a business their business is -- it's founded on communication of ever-widening groups of people. he still wants to connect the world. you said before, i think it was you who said before, they still do more good than bad. i actually believe that. here's the thought i come back
7:10 am
to every single day. if facebook goes away, say really just goes bang down -- that's not going to happen. something would rise up in its place to say we have not going to be a society without that kind of social platform to rely on. maria: did they really do that many changes? the change, you can appeal being taken off the platform, that's how they're reacting to people upset that they were taken off the platform, just a appeal it. >> those conversations are fascinating to me. it makes it sound as if they can spot these things easily. 2.5 billion people use facebook. it is worse than a needle in a hay stack. >> they were like we didn't know. they have all the engineers. they know what -- this is the delusion that everyone had, that they're selling targeted advertising. it's gotten creepier. they know what they're doing. this is why i think the nerd robber baron era is coming to an
7:11 am
end. there was a point in america where companies could do whatever they want. government realized wait a second. they got the hoodies and the cool sneakers and the black turtlenecks, but this is basically rockefeller. it's just cut-throat. >> these are the most powerful business leaders in the world. maria: that's right which is regulation is coming. >> they're wearing monacles and striped suits. >> regulation is coming. we're looking at the tech stocks taking a hit. no one really knows entirely what this is going to mean. maria: how does the business model change with new regulatory environment and new fees perhaps. we've got to talk about apple. this has really been a source for the market. bloomberg is reporting that fox con is planning deep cost cuts. lance, tell us about the supply
7:12 am
issues around apple and dan niles was here a couple weeks ago who said inventory is up 89%. what are your thoughts? >> inventory should be up 89% as you're heading into the holiday buying season. maria: it was up 89% in the second quarter. >> okay, i'll start all this by saying don't bet against apple. i've heard these stories before. i know that fox co con is maybe changing the makeup of their workforce. they bring in more robots, automate some portions of what they're doing, even in the wisconsin plant as they're planning to hire, they're not hiring as many people as they thought because they'll be using a lot of automation to do it. i've also heard stories about the 10-r. it's a dud, it's not working, people are not excited about it. i don't believe these stories. i think this is a really hard story to read right now. we're heading into the holiday buying season. this is a very important time for apple. they'll sell a lot of the
7:13 am
products. the 10-r is a 749 version of the 10. we know the 10 sold like crazy, by the way. here's the big problem. here's where i don't know what to do we'll have the first quarter, first reporting quarter for apple where they don't tell us the unit sales for iphones. they're not going to break it out. i don't even know how to deal with that. maria: is that supposed to be good? >> i don't know -- well, i dhiengdon'tthink it's good. it's turned everybody on their heads. they're think whack aring what k whack are they trying to signal here. i think we know that apple's business is changing. services is growing like crazy. it's a hugely important part of their business. so are some of the other products like the air pods have you walked around the city lately? every person i know is wearing them. it's a huge, huge -- dagen: until they figure out they're not at good as the bose headphones. maria: you say don't bet
7:14 am
against a apple. if you listen to dan niles on this program in october he said avoid it for over the short term because of the inventory problems. how much is it noun the last --w much is it down in the last three weeks? lance, good to see you. we'll be right back. i wanna keep doing what i love, that's the retirement plan. with my annuity, i know there is a guarantee. it's for my family, its for my self, its for my future. annuities can provide protected income for life. learn more at retire your risk dot org. ♪

maria: welcome back. markets are firmer this morning. futures indicate a rebound this morning to the stock market, following a major selloff yesterday. dow industrials are up a half a percent right now. the s&p is up 2/3 of a percent, the nasdaq is up 55 points right now on the heels of a sharp decline yesterday. one stock we're watching is the gap. the retailer looking at closing hundreds of underperforming stores. this comes after the company reported a 7% decline in same store sales for the quarter. the stock, take a look at the
7:24 am
start chart, down 25% this year on gap stores. the final countdown to thanksgiving and black friday upon us. we are taking a look at the top trends edeheaded into the holidg season. joining me now is marisa tarlington. ho holing how would you characte the consumer? >> consumer spending is optimistic. consumers say they want to spend around $800 over the weekend which is up almost 10%. we're seeing a couple really interesting trends, back towards the store as an example, 90% of millennials that we surveyed say they plan to go into a store. this is a group of people that we say are constantly on their phone and shopping. they say they want to go into a store and have an experience. retailers are -- maria: oh, the experience, right. >> retailers are preparing for that with celebrities and live music and experiences that really make the store pop out and stand out. >> one of the things that's
7:25 am
interesting is a lot of the stores have so much extra inventory because of the trade dispute that's been going on, they preordered a lot of stuff that would be imported. is that what's driving a lot of the early sales, sort of the blockbuster or the door buster deals have been front end loaded, going to on all month. >> absolutely. what retail me not data says is we've seen not only offers but messaging around black friday start as early as november 10. i think partly because of inventory, retailers got ready starting november 1st. you started to see it kick off from the sale perspective much earlier. now black friday is not about the single day of black friday and cyber monday. it's about a three-week period of time where retailers are constantly promoting and marketing to drive consumers both online and in store. >> because the current stress in retail stocks is about the profit margins, but your site is basically coupons and deals for companies. is there any lee relationship with your data, when people are hungry, i'm not going to buy
7:26 am
something without a coupon or a deal, can you tell by your traffic on your site when that's the consumer mentality and does that equate to lower profit margins and lower stock prices? is there any data there? >> that's a great question. what we do, we provide deals and discounts to consumers. in this period of time in particular, 87% of consumers say they will not shop unless they can find a deal. so retailers and brands partner with us to drive not only online traffic but in-store traffic. what we find with coupons and deals is, yes, to some extent there is a margin opportunity there but there's also higher spending. when you get 25% off, you tend to spend more. >> the volume's not the problem. it's the profit margins. last year were they less hungry for a deal to shop? >> we're seeing steady state. we've seen 85 to 90% of consumers say they're looking for a deal before they buy, this period of time. >> do hedge funds buy this data from you guys? >> we don't sell our data. maria: tell us what's in and
7:27 am
what's out. >> a couple of things. in-store is the king. 90% of millennials going into a store. cause marketing is also a really interesting trend. retailers standing up and putting their values out in front of the consumer, 50% of consumers are saying they are more interested in buying from a retailer who is standing behind and transparent with their values. a couple other interesting trends with regard to what's out. major e-commerce giants won't take it all. only three in 10 consumers say they plan to buy everything at an e-commerce giant like amazon. the other thing i mentioned already is it's not just about black friday and cyber monday, it's about the whole period of the three weeks. look for deals ongoing throughout the weekend. and last but not least, you won't pay for shipping. both target and amazon have already come out with free shipping and/or expedited shipping. that is table stakes which is a huge win for consumers when they're buying so much stuff online. dagen: when you get free
7:28 am
shipping from a small retailer that isn't used to doing it, that gift will show up in february. free shipping is not free shipping across the board. >> shipping costs are a huge concern with retailers. >> the coupon deals, are they giving to the consumer, more than last year, do they need to give more than last year? >> that's a great question. what we're seeing is not higher discount levels but more creative promotions. so you'll get a gift card instead of a higher promotion. so target you're getting gift cards with your purchase instead of a higher discount level. >> to get you to come back. maria: it's down on the margi margins. >> interestingly, what we're hearing from retailers is not heavier promotional spend but heavier investment in brands, in cause marketing, social media, mobile content, to capture the consumers. not the higher promotion levels. dagen: with the unemployment rate at a 50 year low, i might
7:29 am
have bought a pair of shoes if your salesman hadn't been so rude yesterday. instead, i adopted a flock of turkeys yesterday at farm sanctuary. maria: you called it out. thank you so much. >> thank you. maria: coming up, the fight for house leadership, former president obama throws his support behind nancy pelosi. it may not be enough to get her back the gavel. plus, the controversial mommy issues comments, wait until you hear this. deck the halls with fortnite and bitcoin, why teens are shifting away from holiday gift cards. they're asking for more digital products. back in a minute.

maria: welcome back. good wednesday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is wednesday, november 21s november 21st. your top stories right now. you futures indicating a rally at the start of trading this morning, dow industrials up 145 points right now. s&p is up 18, that's three-quarters of a percent.
7:33 am
the nasdaq with a gain of 63 points, up by almost 1% right now. this after the major indices extended into a second day of heavy losses yesterday. at the close the dow industrials was down 552 points. the s&p down almost 2%. and now with these losses the dow and s&p a 500 are in negative territory for the year. both indices down about 1%. nasdaq holding on to a gain, fractional. despite all of this, larry kudlow says there is no recession on the horizon. >> keep the faith. it's a very strong economy. i mean, i'm reading some of the weirdest stuff how a recession is around the corner. nonsense. my personal view, our administration's view, recession is so far in the distance, i can't see it. maria: european indices are higher. the feedback 100 is up -- the fq100 is up.

7:35 am
isn't it a little early to bring out the big guns writes ocasio-cortez especially when they look like the forward regarding grandpa e-mails from the '08 election they lost. joining us now, ron williams. good morning to you. >> good morning from grandpa e., here i am. that would be one of my tweets, maria. maria: we know what alexandria ocasio-cortez first said. she said three branches of government. she said three branches of congress, rather than government. sarah palin called her out on it. what do you make of the fight? >> this is got you politics. it's a lot of fun, evidence espy when you think about where we are in america with tribal politics. alexandria ocasio-cortez, they love beating up on her. she makes mistakes. she's 29 years old. she is a novice in terms of
7:36 am
american politics. and she could use civic lessons. she got in trouble with the middle east, if you recall. this case, it's almost like fun. it's almost like candy as we approach thanksgiving, just having a little fun because what you get is sarah palin who of course had some missteps of her own and then getting into it with alexandria ocasio-cortez and you have two kinds of very large personalities in terms of american politics. i'm not sure that they are consequential at this moment in terms of any outcome or any change but you have them now taking shots at each other and then what's a little -- i didn't realize this, ocasio-cortez also took a shot at former vice president candidate lieberman, saying he was not a loyal democrat because he's going after her. the only substance i detected when ocasio-cortez said oh, republicans don't want to deal with health care, don't want to admit they're not supporters of health care dis can i say one --
7:37 am
dagen: can i say one thing as a woman, which maybe i can get away with this. ocasio-cortez sort of like sarah palin, the spotlight shines very bright on them very quickly because they're attractive. they're attractive women and they're going to get more attention in this social media age, particularly today because of the way they look. and so you're overwhelmed with the attention, whether on instagram, whether it's on twitter, whether it's all the media outlets, all the television networks, right or wrong, they're going to show pictures of you. and you kind of have to own that. you kind of have to own that, you know what, i'm more popular nationwide or unpopular because of my appearance and i'll say that and i'm not saying that they use that to their advantage. but they're putting you on tv a lot more. >> i think attractiveness matters. in this case, we are in a celebrity political culture and
7:38 am
they shine. also, remember dagen, sarah palin is an icon of the right and ocasio-cortez is a shining rising star on the left. dagen: i wouldn't say an icon of -- >> i think she was. dagen: for some. i know plenty of conservatives, when she would start talking during the '08 campaign, they would cringe because they would worry about her making a mistake. maria: there's a serious story going on here. the fight for the agenda in the democratic party, it's similar to the fight on the right and that it's not resonating with suburban women on the right. let's take the democrats. ocasio-cortez is talking about medicare for all, talking about abolish i.c.e. that's not something that chuck schumer wants, not something that tim ryan wants. so you do have this fight within the democratic party for the microphone and the fight for democratic house leadership as well underlines that. house kne minority leader nancy
7:39 am
pelosi getting praise from former president obama yesterday. >> i think nancy pelosi when history is written will go down as one of the most effective legislative leaders this country's ever seen. her skill, at th tenacity, toug, vision, is remarkable. maria: then you have karl rove writing an op ed, he writes this, as you can see. pelosi is still likely to be speaker but she has much work to do to get a majority. it won't be pretty if she does win. there will be wounds and many house democrats could find themselves defending an unpopular vote back home. so take us through what's going on in the democratic party in terms of this fight for the agenda and fight for leadership. >> well, i mean, clearly what you have -- this is represented by ocasio-cortez, maria -- is
7:40 am
people who are on the far kind of edgy left and that's who she represents. you talked about things like hey, you know what, we don't want i.c.e. around here, seeing i.c.e. as storm troopers rather than enforcers. i think you also have people who are saying on the far left, this is -- they're sort of i would say in the mold of bernie sanders, people who are saying when it comes to high cost of tuition in this country, when it comes to income inequality, given we're doing "mornings with maria," we're talking about business, income inequality, the government has to be more forward-stepping. maria: no matter how much it costs. dagen, how much is this going to cost? dagen: exactly. medicare for all. one, a lot of the major potential presidential candidates in the democratic party have signed onto or supported the bernie care, the medicare for all. it's kamala harris, corey booker. >> this is the cutting edge on the left. it's not necessarily representative of all of the
7:41 am
party. dagen: they should use what has happened to alexandria ocasio-cortez where there's been a lot of pushback on okay, how are you going to pay for it? $33 billion a year over 10 years and it rips up medicare and it rips up private insurance. they should use what she's going through, they better get out their abacus and figure it out. maria: she's wants socialism. >> that's not fair. it's not where the argument is at the moment. the argument at the moment is really about the idea that the government needs to do something about protecting people who may have pre-existing conditions or a catastrophic accident from economic ca calamity. when the right gives you a tax cut that drives up the deficit, people don't say -- we think on the right this is going to stimulate the economy, produce more jobs. maria: and it has. >> i'm just saying -- maria: 4.2% growth, 3.5% growth. >> the thing is about sarah
7:42 am
palin, she is saying stuff that's not calculating. she was right. she went on a limb with the amazon headquarters there. she had the same opinion, that was a screwy deal. that said, is she the sarah palin of the left? is the democratic party making the same mistake? are they raising her status and then someone makes her vice president and it screws up everything. >> it's possible. i think we're far from that. of course, i would have never picked sarah palin. john mccain did. >> look how quick donald trump rose. people rise fast. >> if you look at beto o'rourke, he's rising rapidly. he buys into a lot of strong liberal positions. dagen: again, it goes back to are you attractive or not. if he didn't look kind of sort of like a kennedy, do you think he would have gotten as much attention from hollywood as he did? maria: that's a good point. we are a visual -- right. >> that's why i come on the show. maria, i come every day.
