tv   Mornings With Maria Bartiromo  FOX Business  February 1, 2019 6:00am-9:00am EST

6:00 am
♪ super woman, yes i am, yes, she is. ♪ maria: we kick off the new month for markets with this. futures are mixed this morning, take look, dow industrials up 29 points, the dow and s&p 500 seeing the best january gains in 30 years for the month. the numbers were very strong, earnings season of course one of the big highlights, rolling on. but amazon reported last night posting a third straight record profit. however, the company's revenue guidance for the first quarter missed expectations and that is weighing on the stock this morning. we'll take a look at amazon momentarily. as you can see, the numbers there, $5.68 a share versus $6.04. the stock down right now 4.5%. joining me right now, cfra research media and entertainment aentertainanalyst, your reactioe
6:01 am
amazon quarter. >> i thought there were a number of positive take-aways here. the operating income number actually topped the guidance that the company provided. the one kind of blip in the quarter was revenue as you alluded to. that is actually in a way due to the law of large numbers. it's finally catching up. i think the main story here as i think about amazon is the favorable mix shift from traditional lower margin businesses to actually businesses that are now going to be incremental to the overall margin. think about cloud computing, think about the shift to third party sellers and also the growing advertising business. all of this i think bodes well for future profitability. maria: what drove things in the quarter and how would you characterize the holiday season in terms of the nuts and bolts of the business, delivery and retail? >> sure. so i think we know that the holiday season actually came in fairly strong overall across the
6:02 am
industry. amazon has been gaining share. all of the data points that we saw coming into this quarter for the holiday season i think really set the company up for what i believe was a monster holiday season. all of the hardware devices, the echo, alexa, the flash stick were flying off the shelves. but there's no doubt that the core e-commerce business has been slowing and we saw that again this past quarter. so overall i think the fundamentals of the business remain intact. the favorite metric that the company looks at, trailing 12 month operating free cash flow, now hitting a run rate of almost $20 billion, almost double year over year. maria: that slowing, is that a function of the slowing he global economy or is that a function of just amazon and the law of large numbers as you said? does growth become tougher from here? >> it does, from a top line perspective, there is no no doubt. if you're talking about the core e-commerce business, both in the u.s. and international. but i think amazon web services, which is only 10% of the overall
6:03 am
revenue growth, is going to maintain a trajectory we think of at least 45% to 50% growth for the next few years. now, almost hitting a $30 billion run rate business. so that's -- maria: that's the cloud business. >> that's the cloud business. maria: aws. okay. what company surprised you? take a look at the quarter in general in terms of earnings growth. any company surprise you so far this earnings season? >> i think a lot of the big media companies are yet to report. we know that fang names have been navigating a lot of the private issues. facebooks was a really good positive surprise, i think kind of set the tone of what to expect here. so i think the core fang story essentially remains intact. the media, the core media business as we look to next few weeks when the big ones start to report, frankly i think there's really not much to be too excited about here. the core businesses are facing some secular pressures but all the companies are really repositioning themselves for this new paradigm shift of
6:04 am
direct to consumer shift and that's going to be the key here, which companies can favorably make that transition. maria: we're coming off of the best month in 30 years in the markets. would you put new money to work here? >> it's debateable, the chances of recession. this is a sector universe that is kind of cyclical. if the odds of a recession increase dramatically, then all bets are off. having said that, i think there's still fundamental things that make us optimistic as we look over the next 12 months. maria: within media? >> within media and within the technology sector. maria: we'll leave it there. great to see you. the record-setting polar vortex of blasting the united states with the lowest temperatures in decades. the impact hitting businesses across the country. dagen mcdowell, good morning to you. what's your take. dagen: first, we want to mention the devastating loss for many people because of this record cold snap across much of the midwest. this polar vortex killed at
6:05 am
least 15 people in the midwest and in the east coast. but it's also businesses that we point out on the fox business network that are trying to recover as the temperatures finally start to rise. automakers were forced to close factories because of these record low temperatures. airlines canceling thousands of flights. and the gas utilities were urging customers in the last couple days to lower their thermostats, 65 degrees, because of this surge in demand for natural gas and heat. there was an explosion and fire at a natural gas facility operated by consumers energy corporation on wednesday morning that forced many auto plants to shut their operations. generageneral mow seems to be td -- general motor general generae the hardest hit. airlines were forced to cancel thousands of flights,
6:06 am
particularly in chicago. one of the problems was getting the fuel out of the underground fueling system. planes were landing at chicago's o'hare with extra fuel on-board. but we should point out that the temperatures are rising and this will shock you. so chicago's low temperature was about negative 20 degrees. that does not include the wind chill factor. temperatures this weekend are expected to hit 50. that is a turnaround of 70 degrees in chicago. i think the people there are certainly thankful for that. maria: that's an incredible range. we were negative and now you're talking about 50 degrees. even in new york as well it's going to get a lot warmer. dagen: i wanted to point this out. as a news network, we always focus on weather incidents that are -- that quite frankly they make great pictures, hurricanes, big storms. but this was devastating to many people, to many businesses.
6:07 am
i felt like it was important for us to cover it. the damage, the fallout, the more than 15 -- at least 15 deaths that we know about and the recovery. maria: when janice first said we're going to be talking about this for decades, i'll thought what, really. and you know what? it's incredible when you look across the country, particularly obviously the midwest. dagen: we're not just east coast people. we do think about all americans across the country and what they're going through and how they're suffering or rejoicing. there's been suffering the last few days and certainly rejoicing now that higher temperatures are on the way. maria: let me talk to you about markets for a moment. we're looking at a mixed opening this morning. obviously oil is part of the story as well. we're coming off of a january that's the best january for these markets in 30 years. i guess part of this is the valuation story, right, because markets got crushed in december. dagen: right. absolutely. so markets plummeted and -- in
6:08 am
november and december. it was the worst year for the markets since 2008. but what happened was because interest rates fell so dramatically from about 3 1/4% on the ten year, that as interest rates fell, that automatically made stocks look more attractive because that's how you value them. so you weren't going to buy the 10 year when it was 2.6% but stocks began to look attractive and i think that that has baird itself out in the -- beared itself out in the results we're getting this quarter. amazon a little bit mixed but that's a what have you done for me lately story with the incredible run in that company. the earnings have looked really good. it was largely the bank stocks in the month of january that pushed the markets higher. maria: don't forget the jobs numbers, we've got that out in about two hours. we've got special coverage coming up. we will be all hands on deck. meanwhile, deutsche bank posted their first annual profit in four years. lauren simonetti with that story
6:09 am
now. lauren: deutsche bank reporting profit of $391 million for 2018 despite a loss that came in the fourth quarter. revenue slid 2% despite tim proved results for last year, deutsche bank is playing down speculation about the bank merging with a smaller rifle, commerce bank. taking a look at shares deutsche, they're lower by 3% in premarket trading. facebook and twitter have removed thousands of fake accounts with tie toss russia, iran and venezuela. the phony accounts are accused of spreading pro-iranian government messaging, posting nearly a million tweets about u.s. politics and showing support for nicolas maduro. nearly 2 million people followed the bows gus accounts on facebook alone. -- bonus accounts on facebook alone. twitter shares are up about 2 a. if yew bee you've been thinkingt
6:10 am
quitting facebook, it might be good for your emotional well - being. a study found that users who quit the site are more happy. there is a bump in the daily mood and also an extra hour a day of down time. that makes sense, if you're not on facebook, it opens up a world of opportunities for you to do other things. maria: thanks so much. trade talks underway, president trump feeling positive he says that the u.s. and china can come to an agreement on trade an tariffs. hear what he has to say, next. different story when it comes to congress. up next, cola truce, pepsi and cola creating a cheers ahead of cokcoca-cola's museum ahead of super bowl. we'll have shaq when we come back. stay with us. ♪ it's friday, friday, got to get down on friday. ♪ everybody's looking forward to the weekend. ♪ friday, friday, getting down

maria: welcome back. we've got a big show this morning. coming up, texas congressman and house financial service is committee member, roger williams is here. the legendary super bowl winning quarterback, he joe theisman is here. all-star panel for the jobs panel, begins at 8:00 a.m. joining the conversation, benchmark managing partner, kevin kelly and ceo jake wood. great to have you. >> thanks for having us. maria: good morning. >> love it. it's been a crazy time in the markets. think about how january's kicked off and seeing with the reporting season coming and everyone was worried about a recession but we've seen the best january. i'd like to go back to last january. we had a great january last year as well. if you guys don't recall. then we had february where the
6:15 am
markets really tanked. i think everybody needs to pay taper expectations here, especially going forward. because the multiple expansion and we've seen a lot of not quality stocks do well and quality stocks not do well. maria: especially since we're coming off the best january in 30 years. markets have been so strong in january, because of the comeback. >> i was joking around. if you look at defensive stocks like real estate investment trusts, if we look at the industrial sector they were up 14% in january alone. that doesn't necessarily make sense. so you're seeing a rotation still happen. maria: i'm glad you're on the program this morning. you've got a lot to talk about. you're a veteran. you are a philanthropist. tell us what you're doing right now. >> yes. so the organization that i run, team rubicon we respond to dissays tears around thdis--disd in the u.s.
6:16 am
we're looking at doing work with the venezuelan crisis where we're going to b be sending teao establish internet access points to colombia where a million people have sought refuge to escape the conflict there. maria: we're happy you're here this morning. we're going to kick off with u.s./china trade in focus. the president is meeting with china's vice premier in the owe l val office, sounding optimistic about getting a deal done and making sure it's a good one. >> this isn't going to be a small deal with china. it's either going to be a very big deal or a deal that we'll postpone for a little while. we've been dealing with china. we've had a great relationship. i have a great relationship with president xi. the he relationship of my people to chinese representatives has been very good. maria: yeah, and i was interested in seeing the president's tweet yesterday, dagen, because it's exactly what we wer speaking about yesterdayn he said look, china wants to open up its markets to financial
6:17 am
services but what's more. it doesn't hit his manufacturing base. that's where the chinese are. they want to open up to financial services but what else. dagen: we know china -- the details are all over the place, they've agreed to buy 45* million -- 5 million tons more of u.s. soybeans. they had to clarify that china agreed to buy 5 million tons of soybeans, not daily. the central issues are the things you've been talking about for years on the business network, that is the theft intellectual property. you brought it up with every cfo you interviewed. the espionage, the forced surrender of technology and burdens put on u.s. businesses, ieven if they aren't trying to o business in china. this is a heavy lift for the united states and china. it has to be about more than reducing the trade deficit with china. that's going to be what we're looking for.
6:18 am
maria: let's forget when we had steve bomber on. he said that the theft coming out of china costs microsoft $10 billion a year in profits. en more us in number. because 90% of the companies in china use the microsoft operating system but only 1% actually pay for the microsoft operating system. >> the chinese government told microsoft that hey, don't pursue this and we'll let our market still be open to you. we saw during the trade war they actually -- china should down microsoft being the search program for a few hours. we didn't know what was happening and microsoft wasn't getting any read-through. they are actually using -- the chinese government is using their power to influence american companies. maria: don't forget what dagen mentioned. they can prol promise they'll bl these tons of soybeans and everything else but let's see if they follow through. that's another woul would worry. they told us they would buy a
6:19 am
certain amount of beef. >> let's not forget about the national security issue. the theft of a.i., there's a threat of our capability, projecting overseas what they're doing there as. maria: the military issues, a.i. is cuffe used in the milit. >> they're coming on-board with the first aircraft carrier, things like that. they're stealing all of that. maria: we've mentioned a number of times what they're doing is they are setting up military bases across the world. setting u islands in the south china sea di hechai sea. dagen: these are -- they've really tried to separate these issues. maria: i don't know how you can. dagen: the department of justice dealing with huawei, the defense department dealing with the threatening behavior of china in terms of defense and then you have robert lighthizer trying to negotiate trade and the president himself. maria: i don't know how you
6:20 am
separate it. >> this isn't just an american issue. we've seen our european allies come with us to the world trade oranization and talk about this. that's why you've seen the world coalese. maria: china said we will set your infrastructure telecom and set it up. they've been tapping into the telecom intelligence. dagen: at the negotiating table it does a lighthizer look at his counterparts and say i don't have anything to do with that in terms of the crackdown on huawei. that is the department of justice, i don't have anything to do with it. i'm here to talk to you about this, this and this. so again, it's posturing. maria: we've got the jobs number coming up, big jobs coverage coming up, the january jobs report comes out at 8:30. we are all hands on deck as 8:0e the jobs are and what we're expecting. the estimate, 165,000. we've got good adp numbers

6:33 am
one willing to be reasonable. willing to issue a blank check to the democrats, tell them to fulfill a campaign promise so he can pull up on him rather than unilaterally taking action. >> is in the biggest problem for the republicans donald trump would be setting a precedent by doing this. if the white house does change hands they could be worried democrat comes in and uses the same constitutional authority. >> the new democratic party made it clear they are the party of late-term abortions, the party of wealth taxes. the president this would set would be dangerous and even more scary if the courts do not blockade this because the democrats do win in 20212024 who knows what they would try to pass with this power? maria: let's talk about taxing the wealthy, bernie sanders introduced a bill that would drastically increase estate tax for individuals for a states were $3.5 million as 2020

hopeful elizabeth warren and alexandria cortez proposed taxes on the wealthy. does any of this have any shot of taking place, actually materializing, these pie-in-the-sky proposals? dagen: let's break them down quickly. alexandria abca 15, highest tax rate on income taxes, she wants 70% for income over $10 million, that is based on reality. reality that is ugly, goes back to literally the 1960s. she went 570%. dagen: it was north of 90 but that was before john f. kennedy and lbj lowered taxes. those big democrats. what bernie sanders is doing by
6:35 am
tweaking the estate tax is what elizabeth warren is trying to do, confiscating wealth. at least bernie sanders is operating off of the existing tax system. elizabeth warren is trying to promote something that is communist, confiscation. it would be unconstitutional and never fly. what does it hurt her to throw out this crazy idea of confiscating money from americans who earned it? it doesn't hurt her because she knows it will never go anywhere. maria: she was back against the wall having to compare capitalism to socialism and she said in a radio interview i like capitalism, just we can't have if there is cheating -- >> he didn't find the cheating

6:37 am
that will be them to offshore their money or leave the country entirely. we are seeing this happen in france and to a lesser extent in the us. seeing people leave states like california and new york and taxes won't even fund these progressive projects people want. medicare for all valued at $32.6 trillion in the first decade in the green new deal, $49 trillion, he was before and's wealth tax could only accrue under $3 trillion and exponentially left after that. maria: talking about the wealth tax like it is going to happen. it is fiction, bs left as she can be without joining the communist party. >> you know what else is action? getting rid of fossil fuels within 12 years. does that mean getting rid of airplanes? cars? dagen: the tweet from ben shapiro.
6:38 am
all the democrats had to do was not seem crazy to beat donald trump but now they are the party of infanticide which is the story of this week, taking away your gasoline powered vehicle, confiscating your guns and kamala harris, ending private health insurance in this country. this has been a trip and we are not in the actual election year, a trip on a big bus to crazy down. maria: to people understand it? >> the campaign -- dagen: tell people you are going to lose your health insurance through your employer and you are going to have to buy whatever the government serves up cold, you are alienating voters in this country. >> interesting candidate. a lot of progressive issues, healthcare, education, free education, able to accomplish through starbucks. he built a company that offered universal healthcare to its employees including hourly
6:39 am
employees, offered education benefits to employees. that is interesting private-sector. maria: and identify the middle road like i said hundred times. most people are hanging out in the bill. you might lean to the right on some issues into the left on others but very few people have monolithic ideas you agree with one side on everything so he has identified a path. we will see. thank you for weighing in, good to see you. intel has named botswana and its permanent ceo. >> the company's chief financial officer before being elevated to interim ceo in june. only 7% of sitting ceos in the fortune 500 promoting from cfo. let's look at shares of intel down 1% from a year ago. there will be super tight security at super bowl liii sunday. of 16 fighter jets will patrol the skies enforcing a 30 mile

maria: welcome back. good friday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is friday, february 1st. your top stories right now 7:00 a.m. on the button on the east coast. it's the busiest week of earnings season and it's wrapping up today. on tap, exxon mobil and chevron. we'll get a window into how the energy market is doing this morning many we heard from merck. it beat expectations on both revenue and earnings. the stock is up this morning, about a quarter of a percent. amazon is one stock we're watching this morning. it's under pressure after revenue guidance came in light of expectations last night after the close. the stock now down almost 5%. we're anticipating the jobs report out in an hour and-a-half. it's jobs friday. the expectation calls for 165,000 jobs to have been add todd the economy in the month of
7:01 am
january. the unemployment rate i expecteo hold steady. dow industrials are expected to be up 27 points, a fractional move higher, s&p is down 2 points and nasdaq down 33, after a strong start to the year on wall street. the dow and s&p 500 posting the biggest january gains in 30 years. as you can see, the month was strong, up 7% on the dow and the s&p, up almost 10% on the nasdaq. global markets this morning look like this. european indices are mixed. the cac in paris up a fraction, the dax index lower by 20 points. in asia overnight, similar story here, mixed story. china was the best performer, shanghai composite up 1 1/3%. viral fame comes with a cost. the fiji girl from the golden globes is suing the company. we have details coming up. all those stories coming up this friday morning. joining me to break it down,
7:02 am
dagen mcdowell, kevin kelly and jake wood. great to have you this morning. >> great to be here. i want to just point out a thing on amazon. it's going down in the premarket right now. it was up almost like 2% yesterday heading into the earnings. holiday spending sales were up 63% year over year. their ad revenues doubled and you had tuna on earlier from cfra. he was talking about the law of large numbers. maria: he said the growth is coming from the cloud, aws. >> also, e-commerce sales are growing. the slowing growth was actually in whole foods. their physical store sales were down 3%. it was a calendar issue. so e-commerce sales were up, huge. they still have a long way to go. but the problem is they have to continuously reinvest in their distribution centers because now people don't want product in a day or less, they want it in two hours or less. they have to build out. that was their guidance. it was the physical store ales and guidance of reinvesting. dagen: they were conservative
7:03 am
on the guidance, midpoints were below wall street targets. when a company is conservative, you better look you out because they surprise on the upside. maria: it's all about earnings. we'll get the oil companies out soon. merck already reported. and then we'll get exxon mobil and chevron. coming up, roger williams is here. the legendary super bowl winning quarterback, the great joe thighsman is here along -- theisman is here. cameron hayward is here as well. our jobs panel begins in about an hour as we identify where the jobs are. our top story this hour, starting the year off strong, the stock market posting the best performance in january in 30 years. the nasdaq seeing the best january since 2001, while the dow and s&p 500 closeing with the biggest monthly games since october of 2015. it all comes amid fresh negotiations between washington
7:04 am
and beijing. president trump signaling optimism yesterday as the two sides work to hammer out a trade deal. >> we haven't talked about extending the deadline. the deadline is march 1st. that deadline has stayed. we really haven't talked about it. i don't think we have to extend. i think we will agree. i think when president xi and myself meet, every point will be agreed to. maria: we are just flashing this banner on the screen as the president was talking, senator corey booker has announced officially that he is running for president. he has done this on twitter. >> spartacus. maria: spatte spartacus. >> running for president. maria: the field is getting wider and wider. >wider.dagen: let's see what pe comes out to trump p -- i said it, trump elizabeth warren on the wealth tax. maria: i enjoyed the piece in the joint venture nail, clash of the billionaire politician, going through howard schultz and
7:05 am
michael bloomberg's plans and why the left is afraid of howard schultz running. joining us right now to talk politics and money, is ken mahoney. it's good to see you. >> a lot going on this morning. maria: the best january in 30 years. >> can we annualize that? how does that work out? >> you were all in, after december. >> margin, calls, everything else. maria: would you put new money to work right here. >> we're going to wait for a pull back. markets don't follow the same pattern. 2018 we started off with a strong january. sell may, go away, that didn't work. we had choppiness last year. january up, february down. we have to take things off the table here. we've had a good run here. we're in earnings season. pretty soon we won't have the earnings to drive the market, we'll go back to headlines that are kind of not so positive let's put it that way. >> i think the interesting point is now that earnings are out you're going to have companies coming in and buying shares
7:06 am
again. i keep reading notes from jp morgan, goldman sachs, talking about buybacks are going to be at near peak levels where they're coming in because guess what, their earnings are worth more because guess what, interest rates aren't going higher. the earnings are worth more so they'll buy back more stock because it's cheaper to do that. i hear the wait for a pullback. that's happened time and time again. you an bling and you're not goig to get the opportunity. >> we always like technology, going in before the october meltdown and december to remember, we liked tech. we still like tech. if you're going to be in risky assets, you might as well get the reward. i think the market's forgiving because the fed has been more patient and more flexible. that's why we can be, again, not a margin -- we can be a little
7:07 am
more aggressive in risk assets now that the fed has pulled back and this market's been all about the fed. it really has. dagen: the federal reserve pulls back and says repeatedly that it's going to be patient on its interest rate and balance sheet policy. however, if you -- that seems to signal that the u.s. economy along with the rest of the world is slowing and maybe more dramatically than people think. nonetheless, month of january, small cap stocks very sensitive to the u.s. economy, up more than 11%, the best performer of all the major market gauges. what does that tell you? granted, they're still down 13% from the august high. >> it's all about domestic. they're not so worried about the china headlines. we have to deal with multinationals. we have to play a game. something is not like the other. we have oil up, we have gold up, we have stocks up and bonds up in january. something's got to give. i'm not saying it's necessarily equities. something sticks out here and they can't all be going up at
7:08 am
the same time. >> when correlation goes to one, i think jay can chime in on this here because i think infrastructure is a big thing and so i think that's an investing theme and you're talking about tech. you i would invest in the cell phone towers and data centers for the 5g. how important is this in your work, the infrastructure and cell phone towers. >> infrastructure is incredibly important to the work we do. we see that impacted in places like houston, we're seeing that impacting places like puerto rico. i was just in florida visiting our rebuild efforts there. we would love to see an infrastructure package get pushed through congress because we see our crumbling bridges create a lot of jobs and it would make communities more resilient in the face of these increasing threats from disaster that's we're seeing. last year, the top three most costly disasters in the world were all in the united states. that can be a largely an infrastructure problem. you look at the wildfires in california caused by pg p & e. >> that's a bipartisan that can
7:09 am
mostly get through. however, they don't give trump too many wins. that is a bipartisan agreement about infrastructure. in europe, you have high speed rails. in the states, we have a crumbling infrastructure. it is something bipartisan. maria: you're a seller ahmed of the job numbers -- ahead of the job numbers. take the shillings off the table. is that what i heard? >> in general, we've had a huge ramp-up, especially from december. nothing wrong with taking profits here. maria: great to see you. thanks so much. jobs in america is coming up. we are bringing you live coverage of the january jobs report, kicking off at 8:00 a.m. eastern this morning. first, oil earnings in focus, exxon and chevron reporting later this morning, the numbers coming up. a dream engagement ring, check this out, details on the biggest diamondediamond ever found in nh america. dagen: some foolish man will

maria: welcome back. the arctic blast leaving at least 21 people dead in the midwest. senior meteorologist janice dean is in the fox weather center with the latest on the forecast. janice, wow. >> yeah, we set records yesterday. look at cotton, minnesota, minus 56, that's an air temperature, not the wind chill. mount carol, illinois, minus 38. if that temperature verifies, that will be the coldest the state of illinois has ever been. so certainly one for the record books. historic cold. good news is, we're going to start to see temperatures rebound quite considerably and we go into the weekend. we're dealing with wind chills below freezing, below zero. look at the 24 hour temperature change, a 26-degree difference
7:14 am
in chicago than this time yesterday. chicago, you're going to get up into the 40s this weekend. so from the deep freeze, i think it was minus 23 this time yesterday, maria, to plus 45 on sunday and monday. and then we'll get our next arctic blast on tuesday. it will not be the same as what we experienced this week. thank goodness for that. back to you. maria: it's incredible that things are getting so much warmer in the next few days. >> absolutely. maria: janice, thanks. janice dean in the weather center. one diamond making history, lauren simonetti got a chance to see it up close and personal. lauren: not that personal. it's the largest diamond ever mined right here in north america. and i didn't get to hold it, but i can show it to you. it's known as a 552, it's carat weight, and was discovered in october and is now on display in new york city at phillips. jim pounds, executive vice president of dominion diamond mines, described the moment he first found out about the
7:15 am
coverly. >> i was completely blown away. it was the most exciting thing that happened at our mine for a long, long time. i saw the stone, a picture of the stone, rather, in vancouver where we were at a board meeting. sorry, i just got very excited and got on a plane the next day. the pictures didn't do it justice. the glow of the diamond, the yellow color. it gives it an aura. lauren: making the diamond into rough jewelry will take up to nine months and it will cost in the millions. when you cut it, what will be the final shape? >> the question is what is the perfect shape, what will bring out the wonderful, warm color in it. lauren: smaller stones will likely be cut from 552. for nose the market for an engagement ring, jim has some advice. >> if you're in love with the stone, which you should be, almost as much as in love with the stone as your partner, you should really just focus on the stone and design a ring that does that. lauren: diamonds are forever.
7:16 am
>> they are. lauren: partners are not. >> well, yes, everything -- i mean, as i say, this has been around with us for 3.1 billion years. i don't think any marriage has lasted quite that long. [ laughte lauren: i wanted to touch it so badly. we couldn't for insurance reasons. that diamond was the size of this egg and we have panel participation. it's as heavy as the one pound weight on dagen's finger. the one pound of butter on your finger. >> i got the butter. >> you've got to have a strong shoulder to carry around a ring like this. maria: they will be cut into several different diamonds. dagen: it will be? lauren: there's four cutters in the world that can handle a rare yellow diamond of this size. in had a cocktail party for the diamond with security guards to try to find the right buyer and then the buyer has the opportunity to work with the cutter to find the stone.
7:17 am
we were joking, if you get earrings, your head will be hurting that day. but, yeah -- >> if it's not going to auction, i guess my wife is not going to be able to get it. i was going to get it for her for valentine's day. dagen: you know how i feel about diamonds, though and men being conned into buying extremely large wings. when you get divorced, the woman keeps it and it's a huge waste of money. >> that's why you marry for love. that's why you marry for love. maria: come on. >> please just donate it to team rubicon. >> there you go. maria: good plan. >> in north america, the biggest diamond in the world is six times bigger than this, you know where that is? it's easy. maria: brazil. >> queen elizabeth, the crown. dagen: this valentine's day everybody shoul donate money tor favorite charity rather than buying something.

maria: no chocolate? dagen: a sampler,. >> we want to talk about other manufactured holidays -- dagen: exactly. maria: oil on a run-up. u.s. crude breaks a three month losing streak. we're checking it out next month. we have a lot of earnings in the oil sector coming out. bottled anger, the fiji model made famous by the golden globes now suing the company. that story next up. ♪ i'll be your strong and steady. ♪ you be my glass of mine. ♪ i'll be your shot of whiskey. i know you want to leave me for schwab, but before you do that, you should meet our newest team member, tecky. i'm tecky. i can do it all.

7:22 am
there it is right now at $53. $. it was up nearly 20% for the month. the sector is in focus this morning. joining us now is steven shork. good to see you this morning. what a month for oil. what are you expectations for these earnings? >> earnings should be pretty solid, especially on the refining side of the business, maria. what we saw of course with the decline in oil prices, crude oil prices in the fourth quarter, if you think about it, if demand is strong for gasoline fuel, if you're putting cheaper crude oil into your tea kettle and taking out that product, your margins are going to be very solid. you're going to see very strong earnings on the refining side of the ledger. the production side of the ledger for the integrated oil companies will be challenged but they're well hedged so all in all, expecting some pretty solid earnings. but as we look forward now,
7:23 am
maria, what was great in the fourth quarter is going to be challenged now in the first quarter because those gasoline and distillate margins were to refine were so great, you had maximization of those products. gasoline, all-time highs, and we have a glut of gasoline in some areas. those margins have crashed. fourth quarter earnings should be pretty solid. we'll have to look for the first quarter, they're going to be challenged especially on the refining side of the market. >> when i'm looking at my sectora allocation strategy, whn it comes to the energy space, where should i allocate my capital? should i be looking at oil services? should i look at integrated? how should i allocate? >> you want to look at always, and my mantra is on the levi strauss method. so you want to look out to your point the services, the
7:24 am
companies that are surviving, not necessarily taking major risks. you also want to look at and keep in mind with natural gas, because that is a market that is still and will remain in flux for quite some time because we still have gluts in certain market areas and the money to be made is the transportation of those products out of the supply areas, especially western pennsylvania, eastern ohio, northern west virginia for the marcellus, utica shale and the infrastructure to get that gas from where it is to where it needs to be, that is to say the demand market areas. maria: what's your outlook for prices after this run? do you think that this demand/supply situation keeps up and keeps prices where they are above 50. >> prices will be challenged for the remainder of the quarter because we're at a point now where crude oil demand is weak and it's going to remain weak going into the end of the quarter, because we're going into the refinery, the turnaround season or the
7:25 am
maintenance season. refiners are buying considerably fewer barrels than they were just a few weeks ago. that's going to remain weak. so demand for crude oil is going to remain weak going into the end of the quarter. and of course with gasoline he demand will remain weak, snow and ice on the road, that's a detriment to motorist demand and with distill fuel. oil above 5 # of dollars 5 -- ai could see it going to the high 40s in the nearby future. it's going to be short-lived. once we get to the second quarter, demand begins to pick up. you'll see -- if we get below 50, you'll see a quick retracement back above 50. i think going forward looking ahead into the summer i think oil above $65, that's going to be challenged unless of course russia succeeds in taking its prescribed amount of oil off of the market going into the second
7:26 am
quarter. of course that he remains to be seen. >> the last question, you give your outlook for oil, how is that going to impact the saudi aramco ipo. are we going to see that happen? you saw them come out talk about having an ipo by 2020. i look at oil prices, seems like that can never even happen. >> i'm really quite -- i'm doubtful. it has to happen sooner rather than later. the inelasticity of demand for oil are beginning to soften and they're only going to get softer as we put more hybrids, more electricity, so forth and we continue to steal market he demand with these substitutes away from oil. so if the saudis don't act now and if 2020 is their deadline, it's going to be really hard to see. if they don't pull the trigger in the foreseeable future, i don't see that occurring. maria: it's great to get your insights. thanks so much. steven shork joining us on oil. we'll bring you the numbers in terms of the earnings from exxon and chevron when they come out. in hot water, the viral fiji

7:33 am
let's create the most creative innovative plan, leveraging technology to do everything we can to prevent bad people from coming across the border, we could do that. america was not based on building walls. america was based on building bridges. maria: joining me right now to talk about that, texas congressman and house financial services committee member, roger williams. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. maria: what do you makes of the statement, can it be done with just technology? >> i mean, i think it's right, it's in the long-term, but for heaven's sake we've got a crisis on the border now. we've got to react. i've been a supporter of technology. i've been a supporter of making the ports of entry bigger and more available. but also boots on the ground are important. i support president trump and what he's trying to do. we have to stop what's happening down there right now and long-term technology is probably the answer. maria: because there are areas where it's much more dense than other areas, right. so you've got a lot of people in one place, like the border wall
7:34 am
in nancy pelosi's state, separating tijuana from san diego. we've got 3 million people on one side of the wall, another 3 million people on the other side of the wall. that's a dense area where i can understand the wall works. are there other areas where the wall is needed like that or do you think what howard schultz is saying, that it's just technology is valid? >> well, i mean, technology is certainly valid. but you have to come down here and see what we have. maria: so you need both? >> what you see in california, yeah, boots on the ground, i believe is the biggest answer of all. if we could put 5,000 more border patrol on the border, i think that would go a long way. but there's going to be some cases for a wall. we know it's going to run into a court case, domain issues, boots on the ground technology will certainly work. technology is out in the future. we need to do something right now and i support president trump and what he's trying to do and we need to get it done. maria: you're saying you do
7:35 am
support the wall then? >> well, i support a wall or virtual wall, whatever you want to call it. there is a portion that we can put brick and mortar in. but i get back to boots on the ground. i get back to technology. we all talk about it. we have to act now because the crisis is so eminent and evident. we have to do something. i think the quickest way is to put more border patrol on the border. maria: the two sides are digging in. the address we know is on. president trump will deliver the state of the union address this tuesday, february 5th. it was delayed because of the shut down and because nancy pelosi did not invite him to the house chamber. the president says his speech will stress the importance of unity, congressman. is there any that you can he see? >> no, there's no unity. we're so divided right now politically and washington certainly on this, when the other side it's not a crisis, you merely have to watch the news and of course in california
7:36 am
where speaker pelosi is from they do have a wall as you indicated. real problems in tijuana. so we have to address it now and i would say the president, i would say let's focus -- let's begin to talk about the wall but i would put more boots on the ground right now, more border patrol. we've got fort hood in my district. we've got a lot of military folks that are coming out that would be perfect to put in that particular situation and let's address it now because it is that serious. maria: is there any indication that the democrats, your colleagues on the left, are going to commit money to put boots on the ground as you say it? >> well, there's some that have talked about it and of course we've got the committees negotiating right now. i don't know what's going to come out of that. let's begin to do that and let's start -- see where we need to put walls, see where we need to put barriers, see where we need to improve what's down there right now but begin to get something done that i think the other side would agree to. maria: if the president does

say this is a national emergency and goes forth and builds the wall, will it get -- at the end of the day, will it get caught up in the courts and will he end up not getting the money for the wall anyway? >> i think it would get caught up in the courts because you're talking about property so i think it would. but i think we need to focus and prepare for that but it gets back to what i just got through saying. boots on the ground, whatever technology that we need that we can create, the ports of entry need to probably -- we could make those bigger, improve those. we've got a lot of issues like the drug bust the other day coming actually through the ports, not between the ports. so it's something we've got to get on and i believe the democrats would agree to more boots on the ground. why not? and then begin to move forward on the wall issue and see where it goes. maria: all right. we will see where the common ground is over the next two weeks, congressman, good to see you this morning. thanks he very much. roger williams joining us. it's been a big week for "mornings with maria" certainly and jp morgan called this week the most important week of the
7:38 am
first quarter for markets. in case you missed it, here's some highlights. >> president wants fair trade with china. it's got to be reciprocal. right now, china has free access into our markets and we have limited access to theirs. so the critical issues that we've talked about is market access, making sure there aren't forced joint ventures, not forced transfer of technology, and that we have a mechanism that when we reach an agreement that we can monitor this agreement and that they'll live up to it. maria: cbo says $3 billion is lost, never coming back. your reaction? >> with respect once again, we disagree with the cbo. i don't think we're going to lose anything. this is completely tec complete. none of the incentives have been changed by this. >> the fundamentals, the u.s. is going to do well. we'll have a relatively strong labor report. china and europe where we're going to get data is going to
7:39 am
continue to -- they're going to continue to struggle. the fed will not raise interest rates. i think will reiterate patience and most importantly will say both the pace and destination of balance sheet reductions. >> the democrats have voted for a wall before but now that the president brings forward what the experts want, they say no. that is what's so confusing to me. >> there are places where we should be spending money to improve border security. all of those are on the table. is there a solution? absolutely. >> this is an emergency. this is a crisis at the southern border. it's time that congress get together and finally get this done. >> nancy pelosi hates this president more than she takes her responsibility to protect this country and give the border agents what they need. >> not only have government workers who will get back pay but you have the government contractors who won't get back pay unless something is done. that was a devastating effect on them. >> vice president biden has a slight lead although he hasn't really decided whether he's going to run. >> i think the democrats are beginning to come out of the
7:40 am
gate here. >> the business model for companies like facebook and google are essentially business models that rely on selling all of our data for their profit, with one way or another. >> what's happened in wisconsin, why is this decision made. scott walker lost. the guy that won in wisconsin was bashing the deal from the beginning. now you have an unfriendly government in wisconsin who doesn't want fox con there. >> one of the challenges is, there can't be a communication strategy. the communication strategy comes from the president's twitter feed. supreme compeople come up to mes you're friends with the president, tell him to stop tweeting so much. that's like telling him to stop breathing. maria: how about the rally? >> hate the weather, love the rally. >> good morning. it is very cold here. it was supposed to be about zero degrees today. forecasted to be at one point.

>> tom will never be passed his prime. i think he can go a kim more years -- couple more years. he's 41 now. i'm looking at 43 probably when he's going to be done, if he decides to do it then. you've got experience with coach belichick and tom versus the youth, with jerry goff. you've got contrast of experience versus inexperience and to be honest with you, i've played in both situations. in '82 when we came to the super bowl we had no idea what was going on. when you don't know something to be a frayed of, you can't be afraid of it. that's what the rams are. everything is out there. we've never been you through this. let's enjoy it. cheryl: what do you sunshine. >> i think like you said, the experience is inexperience. everybody has to play until somebody gets hit. we'll he see what happens. i know the rams have a good defensive front. but i'd like the patriots -- i like the patriots' offensive front. they set the tempo with the offensive line and how they run thball.
