>> the bottom line number, revenue growth came in very nicely, the main question was the writing which was lower than expectation. but overall, i think, growth is slowed in the u.s. questionably, another record given by international markets. maria: how do you see the streaming wars playing out here with disney plus ready to go head to head against netflix, hulu and then, of course, amazon, apple and others? >> right, i mean it's really -- nothing short of ground breaking, you have other companies, apple, comcast. i think when we all this is said and done, the most remarkable
year in terms of the evolution of streaming. netflix is in for quite sometime. program investment. at tend of the day i think there's going to be enough to spread around, longer-term, potential shape-out, netflix among potential winners. maria: released public service announcement on twitter. chick flicks, what was that about, they don't like the term chick flicks? >> frankly i thought it was hilarious. my sense they will try to convey image that's consistent and also getting away from the second content.
maria: so would you buy netflix today, stock is under pressure? >> maria, still recommending stock, the way we think about netflix, 3 to 5 years out. we said they'll be valuation, in order, companies profitable, free cash floss occurring in next 3 to 4 years, investments looking at price metrics and a whole bunch of other things that we think will live much more comfortable. maria: we will leave it there. netflix shares up this morning, apple and qualcomm issued settlement on patent. good morning, dagen. dagen: this is a very big deal and maybe apple stock didn't react to it initially but it really opens the door in terms of 5g technology for apple, so apple-qualcomm agreed to dismiss patent litigation between companies around the globe and
ink a new licensing agreement, long-legal ball about how chips are connected, came during opening arguments between the two companies, undisclosed payment from apple to call -- qualcomm agreement and supply with modem chips. qualcomm claiming that apple was violating and apple claiming that qualcomm was overcharging. here is what it means, qualcomm lost $25 billion in market ball with the pending legal threat. for apple here is what it does, it will let apple deploy 5g chips, has been working with
intel which was behind. intel, in fact, said that it would stop developing those chips. this will let apple keep up with samsung. it will hope the door -- give it a step up to compete directly with android competitors with the 5g modem technology, the modem chips, really incredible settlement. let's take a look at stocks performed yesterday, apple stocks really not much move yesterday. up 1 tenth of a percent. yesterday, this is premarket. do we have what the stocks did yesterday because qualcomm stock up. probably a win for both companies. the kentucky fried chicken analogy that both lawyers were using in opening arguments, there's joking after settlement was announced, after trial is
over. maria: dagen, thanks, we will see you if a bit on that search for answers after the iconic notre dame cathedral goes up in flames. amy. >> hi, maria, well, one of the leading series -- theories that the fire was caused by electrical short that's generated by service elevator that was used to reach and some sources quoted in newspaper were saying that the fire actually took hold in that fire, spread from there. but the problem is these are theories, investigators haven't been able to get inside the cathedral because it's not safe, the next 24 to 48 hours will be critical in determining how good the structural integrity of the building so because there's so much water and fire damage, they are concerned that the walls may
not be stable. it stands but investigators, police, firefighters are just not sure how safe it is to be in there. we have seen people up in bell towers this morning. we are learning more about policemen, firemen on the bell towers. we've learned about the sequence of events, first alarm went off at 6:20 friday evening but somehow concluded that there was no fire in the cathedral and then another alarm that sounded at 6:43, at that point the fire was fully engage. the french were excited about that this morning when pictures emerged. a couple of relics embedded within the roster, it's not clear whether or not those survived. beautiful marble statute of 1725 of virgin mary holding jesus also survived.
people praying for the survival and the regeneration of this cathedral, very important and national symbol during this holy, week. maria: wow, really interesting to see relics that survived. meanwhile back here, reported earnings for first quarter, ashley remember ster has the details, better than expected number, ashley. ashley: we are going through them now, good morning to you, pepsico earnings per basis, on revenue coming in at 12.88 billion, a beat. the estimate was 12.69 billion. that number coming 3.82 billion. very healthy, indeed.
lacking medical revenue over a billion. overall, strong numbers. a company that is trying to adapt to consumers, noncarbonated drinks. that's very important area fnght but overall, maria, pretty strong numbers. maria: all right, we will see any movement from the stock, pepsico has had a pretty good year, we will get back to you, coming up competing with huawei, ready to expand reach, what that means for 5g technology at home, we will check out huawei's plans, by the way, lots of orders in europe. plus twitter's big shift, jack dorsey suggesting big change. users react, back in a moment.

we want to talk about competition from huawei. planning to expand in the united states while cutting deals to major players in both markets, banning huawei sales. this is what mike pompeo told me about huawei in the united states. europe is pushing back that this administration wants to slow down the use of huawei, is that what you found in europe? >> we have been out around the world just making sure everybody had same information that countries understand putting huawei technology into it systems, express work along the chinese pla, military in china -- maria: joining the conversation founder and ceo, few leader senior fellow radio fox news contributor richard fowler.
thanks for joining the conversation this morning, we we wanted to look at huawei because this is a serious issue with the u.s. trying to ban telecom but so much cheaper than competitors, african nations having taken on huawei and basically their infrastructure right now. >> this equipment in the u.s. is nonstarter, we cannot have this equipment in this country and i think the nice part about the nokia entry is easy for people to compete and supply products which products of espionage -- we have seen other companies like blackberry my great in auto technology and for once other people will have a chance to compete in the u.s. dagen: nokia trying to help fight the u.s. against huawei but targeting china as huge growth, 17,000 employees in greater china region including
hong kong and taiwan. it is a tricky tight-rope act, if you will, for nokia. >> they're sell to go china, if the chinese buy it it's fine. dagen: if china thinks that nokia is in bed with the united states, that's a huge hurdle and throws up a wall, if if you will. maria: american companies were so interested in getting foothold in china. along the way we forgot to protect our own technology and now you have a situation where you're recognized when you're a chinese company, any information data is going right back to the chinese government. >> i think that's an interesting thing you say, maria, especially if you look at the china trade talk, sticking point isn't intellectual property, now that you have huawei trying to get in
markets, europe, africa and the whole idea, spy on the folks, we can take property and now can nokia in the game, there's competitor and now think about price, how can you compete with huawei on price. we are not into huawei and price no longer issue. maria: pompeo was very clear, those countries that continue to use the infrastructure of huawei which is going back to chinese government will receive less information from the united states government. >> when i talked to people that travel to china, it's incredible, they don't bring their cell phones. maria: i don't. >> they don't access any services, they turn off the equipment when they get on the plane in china and they do in the turn it back until they get to the united states. dagen: that's why i found over the years what -- what even u.s. corporate executives have been doing with china, it is clear for them for years, the chinese
are spying on them even as individuals, china tracks any business wanting to operate in china, they track literally every word uttered by the individuals, they know it but they are still eager to do business there. i know it's a large market, but, again, the trade off is quite dangerous in some aspects in terms of ip theft. maria: american companies, so china has huge opportunity, 1.3 billion people to sell products to meanwhile we are focus on getting foothold in china that we forgot to protect intellectual property. and it's gotten a lot worse and the way the administration is handling, we will watch closely. many americans dealing with severe storms and tornadoes in parts of the united states this morning, we will take you there. then 20 vision as democratic field expands, president trump is handing out new nicknames to

showing movement at north korea's nuclear site, center for strategic studies, nuclear site, 5 specialized railcars near enretchment facility, could indicate radioactive materials which could be turned into bomb fuel. north korea's leader to meet with vladimir putin. pushing back against reports 26 billion-dollar merger is in jeopardy, our very own charlie gasparino exclusively reported but the company has not received notice from the justice department as deal would be rejected without any major changes, they are working with government officials to complete the transaction, antitrust officials of t-mobile and sprint
will be turned down. shares of both companies as you can see lower the premarkets, sprint down more than 5%, t-mobile down more than 4%, maria. not so fast on the report that is the deal is in jeopardy. maria: thanks, cheryl. >> i think charlie is right, not so fast, it was very clear what the report said which was it wouldn't be approved as it is structured now, that means that there might be various consent decrees and merger conditions but the market's reaction and hysteria on twit they're the deal is over nothing came out that suggested that and both ceo's said it's an overstatement. >> the fact that he's meeting with putin and revamp some nuclear programs would speak of the fact that the president put kim jong un in world statement and new light. maria: put kim jong un kim in
new stage and new light, what do you mean? >> he met with the president of the united states gave him legitimacy in the world. i can meet with world leaders. maria: you don't think the president should have met with him? >> until there was actual deal on the table to denuclearize and now that he has met with the president, speaking to world leaders. maria: i get your point, but there hasn't been any any missile test, they will push back, there seems to be a conversation happening. you weren't expecting kim jong un to denuclearize. >> i think the idea -- the only thing that keeps him legitimate are nuclear weapons, the idea that the united states president met with him speaks that he's a legitimate world leader. maria: i don't know. i don't know. okay. he's running north korea.
state of the art technology makes it brilliant. the visionary lexus nx. lease the 2019 nx 300 for $359 a month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. when it comes to type 2 diabetes, are you thinking about your heart? well, i'm managing my a1c, so i should be all set. right. actually, you're still at risk for a fatal heart attack or stroke. even if i'm taking heart medicine, like statins or blood thinners? yep! that's why i asked my doctor what else i could do... she told me about jardiance. that's right. jardiance significantly reduces the risk of dying from a cardiovascular event for adults who have type 2 diabetes and known heart disease. that's why the american diabetes association recommends the active ingredient in jardiance.
and it lowers a1c? yeah- with diet and exercise. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration, genital yeast or urinary tract infections, and sudden kidney problems. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. a rare, but life-threatening, bacterial infection in the skin of the perineum could occur. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of this bacterial infection, ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. so, what do you think? now i feel i can do more to go beyond lowering a1c. ask your doctor about jardiance today. comcast business built the nation's largest gig-speed network. then went beyond. beyond chasing down network problems. to knowing when and where there's an issue. beyond network complexity. to a zero-touch, one-box world. optimizing performance and budget.

news, earnings here at home setting tone to markets, take a look at pepsico with double-beat better than expected on earnings and renew, snacks and beverages, stock is up 2 and two-thirds percent, we are waiting for numbers of morgan stanley, better than expected numbers, some of the banking sector, shares are up more than 1% this morning, check futures this morning, dow futures up 28 points, the nasdaq futures up 21 and a half, firmer tone to start this morning, yesterday's markets slightly higher, dow industrials off 67 points, s&p 500 up 1 and a half. cac quarante in paris up 13 and dax in germany up 25, take a look at asia overnight, positive news out of china, gdp and sales numbers that we were waiting on

great things. god rest their soul. new national poll shows bernie sanders is the front runner in the democratic primary race followed by joe biden and mayor pete, joining us gop strategist john thomas to weigh in all of this, john, the democratic field keeps getting bigger, do you agree that those are the front runners as president trump said biden and -- and obviously you have joe biden and bernie sanders. >> yeah, actually i think president trump take and this is what president does, he defines and brands opponent before they can define in election cycle. going right now looking at bernie sanders because he has impressive fundraising haul with over $18 million in first quarter, that makes him a viable
contender and i don't see his money shutting off, so what trump just did with nicknames was undercore the candidates two fundamental flaws, one is that bernie sanders is a crazy socialist who is bad for americans and the other, although it sounds cute it's important to note that what he's doing is branding biden as out of touch with modern america and modern economy. maria: richard fowler is here, what do you think about all of this? let's talk policy because i feel i'm waiting to see the policies coming out of, for example, joe biden, what he thinks is going to run on, bernie sanders has medicare for all, but many people uphold that policy given the fact that wipes out the private insurance policy. >> i think that's good idea on bernie sanders, joe biden is not in race, hard to evaluate until he actually announces and i think it will come back to, maria, come down to health care,
i think a lot of americans are really trying to figure out what they're going to do on health care with the president's announcement and previous conditions on being on the table for many americans especially in michigan, pennsylvania, wisconsin where it will come down to, that what it's going to be about and the white house not proposing health care plan, we will see what happens. >> i think we know bernie's policies, bernie is a socialist, i watched interview on fox news, town hall, he won't apologize for making $560,000 on the book and a million dollars in prior years, my view on it if he's a socialist, why doesn't he have the money go to entity, dispersed among a thousand people, so i think he does need to actually defend capitalist practice but speaks about socialism.
maria: capitalist in practice and socialist in terms of view, how can you do that, dagen? dagen: well, i don't -- i think that their argument for socialism falls apart if you create a system that basically limits entrepreneur in the country, where will you get the tax money from. that's my one big issue, i did want to say that bret baier pushed bernie sanders which was the highest-rated town hall on any news network so far, so we are going to get -- [applause] dagen: i'm hoping, howard kurtz is reporting that mayor pete buttigieg is coming to do a town hall and others running for nomination. maria: on edge for the whole time. dagen: i said on varney that bernie sanders was clearly hammering trump immediately and i said be careful, do you really
see yourself as the victor in the democratic primary and then winning the democratic nomination. he immediately started hammering president trump. >> so word about the socialism thing, i'm so worried about turning away on capitalism, ultimately whatever the least socialist, democratic candidate is the one that i want to run because capitalism is such a fundamental part of the country, such a fundamental part of democracy, they go demand hand, the fact that you have candidates coming out saying that we should be early russia -- maria: it's mudding the waters. >> i think the idea -- and you have bernie who is talking about being socialist, if you look at the rest of the field, there's a conversation about how we ensure that people have access to health care, how we make sure that everybody with high-quality education, both are socialists. maria: all endorse the medicare for all. >> right, medicare for all in different forms, so basically at
its root making sure that every american has access to some form of health care no matter what the cost looks like. maria: the way that they are prosing doing it is big program which is socialist program. >> let's be clear, the republicans have no solution for health care, no democratic proposal, and number 1, number 2, to have a conversation about bernie's earnings without talking about we haven't seen the president's earnings is problematic. maria: go ahead. i want to get your take on all of this but i just want to say let's not underestimate all the money that bernie has raised. the fundraising has been incredible. he's in the lead in terms of money raised. $18 million so far, the new york times reporting some democratic party are agonizing over
momentum and his ability to raise money. having said that, the trump administration reported what they earned in the first quarter and it's $30 million, so there's a lot of money on the republican side. >> yeah, and trump raised more than 30 million in his campaign, trump is playing it in terms of war chest but the money that bernie has makes him a viable candidate especially in the early states, he can afford the organizers, the most tv ads, maria, if he wins iowa which right now he's polling within the margin of error in top 2, he will go like a rocket ship to new hampshire because they love him and might be unstoppable, i want to go back to the point, you're talking about the elephant in the room, trump tax returns, here is why bernie sanders being a billionaire is such a problem bernie sanders because undermines the
fundamental brand promise and that is that he hates millionaires and billionaires, millionaires and billionaires are evil capitalists and they don't belong in society, bernie has multiple homes and turns out that he's a rich fat capitalist. maria: who is not paying their fair share? who is not paying their fair share? that's the talking point that bothers me, the top 10% pay 71% -- >> i'm talking about folks who don't pay their fair share. maria: like who? >> they are not paying enough taxes. maria: okay, all right. real estate investors. >> hedge fund managers, 35% of money in taxes. maria: now you're putting apples together with oranges. >> we are talking about money going into -- maria: warren buffet is talking about capital gains.
>> all the income coming in. maria: one is capital gains and one is income. >> essential part of this country and entrepreneurship. maria: don't mix it up. >> you could argue maybe it should 18 months or 2 years, if you don't have capital gains, we should level the playing field. maria: you're confusing it. warren buffet when he talks that he has to pay less taxes than secretary, it's two different things. >> i agree. maria: warren buffet doesn't have income, he's getting tax from stock which is capital gains. you said the same point. >> what i'm saying that warren buffet's capital rate will be taxed as secretary's income.
dagen: so try to win the presidency on that one because elizabeth warren is doing same thing with wealth. [inaudible conversations] >> get rid of corporate tax. maria: the reason they have capital gain's taxes lower than income taxes is the way to encourage people to invest for the long-term, whether they reinvesting a home, invest in the stock market, buying stocks, he just said you want tax rates to be with capital tax rates. forces me to stop and explain it. >> what we have is this, you have corporations who have millions of dollars -- billions of dollars not going back into market, sitting on their books, they are not investing, it's just sitting there. if that money was given to middle-class families and working-class families, go right

maria: markets are higher this morning on better than expected economic growth, we had gdp, building, the first quarter gdp numbers out of china, beating expectations, retail sales also higher than expected, joining us right now female capital market brian, always great to see you. thanks for being here, what's your take on chinese numbers and impact? >> the numbers like you said, shocker, the old adage is you take the number and divide it by 2. maria: you don't believe the numbers? >> no, they will make the numbers that they want to make. this is great news, it's reflected in the china market, china stock market with new high. maria: retail sales up 8.7% year
over year, estimate 8.4%. >> yeah, the biggest thing about china that i think so many people are missing is the transition from industrial economy, this is a culture that doesn't spend money. that's important point in terms of near-term basis but as they continue their growth trajectory long-term they have to learn how to consume, if you travel china, if you talked to chinese investors they are very aggressive and so they will continue to work likely to get the market higher but longer-term trajectory i question it. dagen: one concern was in information yesterday, federal reserve data released that u.s. manufacturing is experiencing a slowdown. we got it for -- it was flat in march after falling the first 2 months of the year and manufacturing output for the
quarter was declined at rate, annualized rate, so we got a lose of 6,000 jobs, that's not good for -- doesn't say that we are going into recession, exclamation on what does appear to be slowdown in u.s. as well. >> a partial negative, companies were very reactive and let's face it, multiple countries with terrible weather, that had something to do with it. we believe after the first quarter earnings period which is better than most people think, companies are reacted on near-term basis. i think that number in the second quarter will be better. limited data. things are little bit better than what most people think. maria: does it help the u.s.? >> yes, it does. i think because if you take a look at equities on nasdaq, maria, equities in the u.s. have
been stable, look at europe. maria: still buying stocks? >> we are still buying stocks, we think the market is still in place. earnings will not reach that in terms of earnings, time to continue to buy u.s. stocks. maria: we will leave it there, brian, thanks so much. ceo jack dorsey suggesting big change in platform. what's a company worth? how do you determine the durable value of a business in the transportation industry without knowing firsthand the unique challenges in that sector. coming out here, seeing the infrastructure firsthand, talking with the people behind the numbers creates a different picture. once i know what a business is truly worth, we can make better informed investment decisions.
suggesting yesterday it would be better if users followed topics and not individuals, this of course, facing criticism for not protecting antiusers from abuse and threats, some of the users are angry over dorsey's proposal, one of them tweeted, quote, jack dorsey most impressive ceo only on the fact that he has no idea what his users want. twitter shares under pressure ahead of opening bell. they just went up fractionally above right there. selling martha stewart brand for 250 million, they paid 350 million, the buyer this time is mark and spoiler on social media making avengers filmmaker

maria: welcome back. good wednesday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo. it is wednesday, april 17th. your top stories. we're watching strong news out of china overnight. that set a positive tone to markets and of course earnings, that is really the focus for wall street this morning.
largely better than expected. we heard from pepsico this morning, better than expected on earnings and revenue, up 2% on the stock right now. morgan stanley we're waiting on any minute now. we'll have full analysis. p pepsico with a double beat, largely attributed to salty snacks and low sugar sodas. dow futures are up 24, s&p up 4 points and nasdaq up 20 points. yesterday markets were higher, they did close off of the session highs. the dow industrials picking up 67 points at the close yesterday, a quarter of a percent. s&p 500 was up 1 and-a-half and nasdaq was up 24 points at 4:00 on wall street. european indices this morning are mixed. mostly higher. the fq100 in london is down 6 points, cac in paris is up 13 and the dax index in germany is high higher by 31. first quarter gdp in china was up 6.4%, retail sales also better than expected, 8.7 --
6.7% higher on retail sales. hanshanghai composite was up a quarter of a percent overnight, the best performer. the chinese da data, retail sals up. a new cover story reveals what it calls hell at facebook. we'll tell you about the tensions happening between mark zuckerberg and executives apparently. lawmakers in one state taking a swing at golf courses, proposing a tee-up tax. rise of the spot mini robots, boston dynamics out with more robots, showing off the strength of its dog pound. check that out. yeah, robot dogs. now they have a pound. morgan stanley numbers are looking better than expected. joining me to break it down, dagen mcdowell, john steinberg, fox news contributor richard fowler joins us as well.
so the numbers are coming out, the estimate was $1.17 a share on $9.93 billion. we're getting the morgan stanley numbers right now which are actually better than expected on revenue and earnings at $1.39 a share on morgan stanley versus the estimate of $1.17. revenue also above expectations, and the stock is trading higher. let's get to ashley webster, he's got all the details. ashley: the headline numbers, $1.39 on . . . eps. a nice beat on the earnings. on the revenue, also a nice beat, $10.9 billion as opposed to $9.93 billion. those are good headline numbers. as always, the devil is in the details. it's the trading revenues that really hurt morgan stanley in the fourth quarter, that drove that earnings miss. i'm trying to get those now. coming in at $3.4 million, that is down from $3.7 million last year in the same time period.
so trading revenues down slightly, total revenue total was expected to be 3.93, coming in at just a little bit under that. so again, the trading revenue down a little bit. but overall, the headline numbers good. the premarket, morgan stanley up 2 and a third percent, more than a dollar at 48, 10. ebbing with at this revenues at $2.01 million. that is pretty strong. return on average equity coming in at 13%, that is above average as well. so overall, quickly going through these headline numbers, and again, the trading numbers seem to be okay, perhaps as i say, they really hurt this bank in the fourth quarter, coming back a little bit in the first quarter. so there you have it. that is why we're seeing this stock move up quite healthy in the premarket, two and a third percent. maria: it's really moving. the stock is improving. we're going to dig through the
numbers right now. joining us with reaction is alex partners ceo, simon freakily. thank you for joining us. how does the financial services field feel to you right now trading was an issue for some of the banks. we're not seeing that this morning in terms of the beat on morgan stanley. >> it still feels strong, maria as we see this happening through the first half of the year. there's an anxiety that maybe that will change. so far, so good. >> it seems like the move into the wealth management, the focus on that in this quarter, after the volatility in the trading revenues, was the right move. seems that's what we're seeing. ashley went through the trading revenue, it was not great. but the wealth revenues buffeted it. >> absolutely. maria: it started two years ago or more than that when wall street decided to bone up on wealth management and lower exposure and energy toward trading operations. >> they have a company, basically. maria: ubs was the first to do
it. morgan stanley bet big on wealth management and it helped turn the company around. >> it seems like they didn't want to have really volatile stocks anymore and they wanted a company which had forecastable earnings and wealth management gives that to them. it's predictability. >> they're dealing with disruption in their industry. they're looking at what the industry looks like, how to best position themselves, how they pivot, and i think they've done that very well. maria: how important is china in all of this, china and the u.s. in talks in terms of the trade agreement that we're expecting at some point, overnight we saw good numbers out of the chinese economy, gdp coming in at 6.4%, retail sales coming in better than expected as well. does that provide an opportunity for financial services? because that's where china is agreeing, to open its market for financial services. i know jp morgan recently got the okay to own a bank in china. ubs can own 51%. so that's where china is opening its market so far.
>> clearly, china remains a huge opportunity for many industries, not just financial services. not having a resolution to the tariff wars that's going on creates uncertainty and companies either in the financial sector or any industry are dealing with this bermuda triangle of issues which is disruption in the industry, changing customer preferences, an anxiety about when the economic cycle will change and any uncertainty that's a backdrop for that, whether a trade war with china or brexit in the u.k. or trade war with europe creates uncertainty and distracts people from dealing with key issues. maria: one more to that is the global slowdown. >> right. maria: where you are seeing europe fail to show any real growth, partly because of britain, britain's exit from the e.u., still struggling to find a clear path forward, creating uncertainty. what's your take on how britain plays out. >> that's a question i want to ask simon. we've seen some banks say, the head winds, point to the fact that the u.k. may remain in the
e.u. or create a deal where they're part of the customs union, not part of the e.u. what's your take? >> i think a large amount of continental europe and probably half of the u.k. wishes that the u.k. would stay in the european union. the trouble is, we had a referendum three years ago, a public vote where people on balance decided to leave. what nobody realized was how difficult it would be to pull that off. and also, the question which the voting public was asked three years ago is very unclear. nobody really understood what leaving the e.u. meant. the e.u. has movement of capital, movement of goods, movement of services and labor. what the refe refer are referens focus on the movement of labor. i think the referendum we saw three years ago was really a vote on immigration, wasn't really a vote on membership of the e.u. now what is transpiring is the situation is more complicated than that i hope there will be a second referendum. dagen: as we move toward the
presidential election season, as the rhetoric gets hotter and hotter, particularly among individuals running for the democratic nomination, how could that possibly impact business decision making? because it's not a -- hillary clinton would have been arguably a third president obama term in terms of policy. but you have people who are leading the democratic pack right now, who have some very, very socialist ideas. >> right. so i think it's all about certainity. the more certainity or the more visibility business leaders have to plan their own future, do their own strategy, the better. i think anything that creates uncertainty is going to make things very difficult. now, socialism of course is a well-established concept in the e.u. socialism can sit rather well with capitalism, not something that's quite so understood here. but i think that socialism and a socialist lead leader isn't necessarily bad for business.
>> back to china -- dagen: you said a socialist leader isn't bad for business. why not? it would be bad if you're in the insurance business. >> you can have an administration that supports society in various ways, healthcare, benefits, what have you, but that doesn'tl necessarn it's bad for business. the u.k. has been thriving in business for the last 10 years. it had a number of socialist policies. dagen: their national healthcare system is fully socialized medicine. >> back to china. brian belski from bmo said they hit the headline number of 6.4. big shocker. he doesn't believe the numbers. do you believe the numbers? if you don't, what do we do with a number that might be a novella basically. >> i do believe the numbers. in an economy like china, they can manage the numbers better or differently than we can in western democracies. so is 6.4% a real number?
yes, it is. i think that's a relief to business that's are selling into china or have production facilities in china. yes, i believe it. i think we'll see a more managed set of growth statistics in china than we expect to see elsewhere. maria: we will leave it there. i'm looking at morgan stanley this morning. the numbers are better than expected. all we're getting so far is commentary on the wealth management business because that's the star. >> 4.4 on the nose. maria: that's the star of the business. >> they hit it exactly. the trading revenue was down by $500 million. maria: simon, thank you. coming up, inside facebook, a new cover story reveals what it describes as hell at the social media giant. we'll tell you about tensions between mark zuckerberg and executives. facebook and instagram, likes could become a thing of the past for the younger generation. the robo dog pound boston dynamics shows off the strength of its spot minis, these are dogs, robotic dogs, at boston dynamics. back in a minute.

maria, $142,000. times are changing. maria: yeah. wow. your thoughts? >> well, let's go back to morgan stanley for a second. if that's okay with you. it's amazing when you look at the trading revenue overall, it was down by $300 million from a year ago. when you look at the equity trading it was down by $500 million, 2.5 to $2 billion. that wealth management was a absolutely flat at 4.4. which is why you realize, his decision to migrate into this very steady predictable business, investors are happy with steady, that's why the stock is u up modestly. maria: first quarter was up 13% in the market. i don't understand the challenging conditions from these banks about the first quarter. it was the fourth quarter that was so challenging. you know what? it seems like there was follow-through. because of the government shutdown in the first quarter and because of the upset you saw at the end of last year, there was -- people waited before getting back active again. you did see some follow-through in the first quarter. >> you've been following this longer than me. with the trading revenue, it
never makes rhyme or reason as the to why it's up or down. the hedge funds had a bad q4. there were resedgeses. they traded less in one. there's always an excuse. with wealth management, people give them the money, and they manage the money. maria: wealth management has been the jewel of the business for sure. quick break and then we go inside facebook. a new report says it's, quote, hell to work at the social media company with tensions high between mark zuckerberg and his executives. lincoln reveals its brand-new 2010corsair live on this program. wait until you check out this suv. back in a moment. ♪ i can change, i can change, i can change. ♪ i'm here
morning. a new article by technology magazine, wired, titles 15 months of fresh hell inside facebook, shedding light on facebook founder and ceo mark zuckerberg's relationship with the platform instagram and co-founders. joining us right now is kurt knudsen. what's going on here? >> maria, good morning to you. it's not a surprise. if you take a look at what you have in the marketplace with zuckerberg responding over the last two years, three years of privacy issues starting with the cambridge analytica catastrophe that sealed the fate of it being seen as an organization that harvest data, resells it and has run amuck. you have donald switzerland, a bunch of executives, including cheryl sanburg, they're pow wowing, knowing they're going to go into a group of analysts and get hard questions from true people in the business world and it turns out that their idea of
what facebook is and it's evolving into is an internal fight into that room about what this message is, mark zuckerberg saying. it's like is it let's get on this new mission it underscores not only the turmoil we see externally at facebook and their messaging, but it's really strongly existing right there up at the c-suite. maria: i think you make a good point, a point dagen brought up over and over again in terms of whether or not these companies are media companies and how do they want characterize themselves. that entails a different regulatory backdrop. doesn't it, dagen. dagen: it does. >> dagen is right. it took mark zuckerberg -- i mean, it was like his coming out. it was funny. because for so long he kept saying no, no, we're not a media company, we're not a media company, no matter what. eventually one day somebody says, well, i guess we're a media company. maria: more and more people get
their news from these companies, dagen. dagen: right. >> there's no question. dagen: it's the equivalent -- i've always said, it's the equivalent of getting some e-mail chain letter from your uncle with a list of conspiracy. that's the definition of the, quote, news, unquote, that you get on facebook. and if they pars content, if they decide what you see and what you don't see, it is most definitely a media. maria:company.maria: that's whs is saying. he's suing five companies right now. dagen: you can't sue them for defamation based on the laws that exist on the books. maria: he's calling them content developers. >> very choice quotes from that article. the first one is, facebook's other problem is it didn't understand the wealth of anti-pathy that built up against it. had they have no partners, no friends. they do what they want to come this finally came back to bite them. the other quote, senator, we run
ads, the comment that zuckerberg made i believe it was to orrin hatch, a phrase that was soon emblazeened on t-shirts in menlo park. who would put an insult you made to a senator, who would put them on t-shirts and walk around with them. they are out of touch in the fact they exist on a planet with other human beings. >> they're not losing advertisers, not using subscribers. subscribers and advertising revenue have increased. it seems that for facebook they're on another planet a that continues to make money. dagen: is time on the platform going on? is the amount of time that people spend on facebook in any given month or week -- >> there's enormous regular la tori overhang -- regulatory overhang right now. that's what's weighing on the stock. the users and advertisers don't care. maria: what europe has done, kurt, in terms of the big
government on some of these companies, a lot of people wonder if that kind of big government bite is going to happen in the u.s. doesn't look like it. europe has these companies in its target. >> british information commission is what it's called, the u.k. taking a hard look at reshaping how social media is hitting mainly children there and they're asking for a lot of rule change to start up in 2020. one of the things, centerpiece would be removing the ability for kids under the age of 18 to be able to like anything, just remove the entire feature and functionality of like, and that's a pretty big idea. and their complaint is, after study, they believe it's not good for the well-being of that small child. are they right? you better believe it. how much do we feel suckered for having -- sitting there going like, like, like, like. i wish there was a like button that liked all my like buttons. then i don't have to engage. all of that and everybody feels good i gave them the affirmation
they were looking for that facebook tricked us into doing in the first place. it causes more engagement on the platform. , looking for some form of engagement or recognition that keeps the platform engagement way up. maria: it's interesting to see what's going on in the u.k. as a result of that. kurt, great to see you. thanks so much. >> great to see you. maria: asylum seekers could spend more time in detention centers, we'll take a closer look at the border battle. and boston die fla dynamics reve strength of the spot mini robot. check this out. back in a minute. ♪ i'm my own worst enemy. ♪

i'm maria bartiromo. happy wednesday. its is wednesday, april 17th. your top stories right now, just before 7:30 a.m. on the east coast. strong news out of china set the tone for markets. earnings better than expected on a number of fronts, that is setting a positive tone. pepsico and morgan stanley, both stocks are up, morgan stanley had a double beat on earnings and revenue. the stock is up better than 3%. pepsico also better than expected on earnings and revenue. higher demand for snacks and sodas from pepsico. two strong ones this morning setting the tone for the broader markets. futures indicate a gain at the start of trading, up 31 points on the dow industrials, s&p 500 up 6 and a quarter, nasdaq up 27. yesterday markets were higher. the dow industrials were up 67 points at the close. >>.s&p 500 up 1 and-a-half and nasdaq up 24 points. in a asia overnight and in europe, we are seeing a better tone as well.
european indices mixed, the cac in paris is up 114 an 14 and dax is up 35. in asia we had positive economic data out, gdp up 6.4%, topping expectations and the retail sales number better than expected. very strong on retail sales. that has the shanghai composite up a quarter of a percent as you see there. teeing up taxes, lawmakers in one state taking a swing at golf courses. we'll take a closer look at what that means for property taxes coming up. and then big changes to x-box, microsoft says good-bye to dips for the late gaming console. the rise of the spot mini robots, check out boston dynamics' dog pound, quote, unquote. yes, it's all robots but they're dog robots. and they have a dog pound. we'll show you those pictures coming up. our top story this half hour, the battle at the border, the trump administration moving to deny bail to some asue limb seekers, meaning they could
spend more time in jail while cases are decided, this comes as customs and border patrol released footage, exclusive footage that we got last night at the border in el paso. it shows migrants crossing the border illegally near tucson, arizona. this video comes to us from the customs and border patrol out of tucson, arizona. and you see 980 people were apprehended. this was just yesterday. and they've got this on video of people coming out of the truck and just entering right there over the border into the u.s. joining us right now is fox news senior judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano. when the agents sent me that video last night, it was so amazing to actually see what these guys are looking at, young, in terms of on the video cameras. he said this is fresh video, this is from yesterday. the border patrol agent e-mailed
me and said there were 980 apprehensions yesterday. >> well, you know, i'm sure this happens every day. it's startling because we're seeing it. they're obviously not dressed in white but they appear white on the screen because this was taken at night and they're using some sort of technology that illuminates them without illuminating what's around them. it does show that the type of behavior at the border that the administration has been complaining about does occur. in the real world, they would be stopped and interrogated and asked why are you here, what are you fleeing from, what do you want, sort of a preliminary investigation. are you here to harm us? are you here fleeing repreenings and they have to decide how to address under the various sec chunks of the statute. maria: the e-mail i got from the border pa patrol public afs office, he told me 980 individuals illegally crossed the border in three large groups and they were mostly comprised
of family units. that's quote, unquote. you know what i mean when i say family units. they're from central america. they were apprehended in the el paso and tucson sectors. >> this is what's so troubling for the administration. if they're not from mexico, they cannot be sent back to mexico. because the statute only permits you to send people back to a contiguous country from which they org. nateed. mexico is contiguous. they didn't originate from there. because they are or appear to be family units, the government cannot detain them for more than 20 days under an agreement, a famous case called flores back in the clinton administration which is still binding until the trump administration goes to court and gets that changed, they are bound by it. it says family units cannot be separated. children cannot kept from parents for more than 20 days. what is the government to do? it either has to detain them for 20 days and let them go or
somehow get them back to central america which is logistically impossible. thend result, thethe end resulto and they say here the trial date. your trial date will not be -- i'm giving ahypothetical until 2021. they're not going to come back. they'll probably be assimilated by then. maria: lindsey graham l told me on sunday, the word is out in guatemala, in honduras, el salvador, make believe you're a family and go to the u.s., they'll be able to stay there. the word is out on the streets. >> that's why important for the government to follow the law, which says conduct a preliminary inquiry right then and there to see if a case for asylum is being made, to see if this is really a family or some sort of a group of people pretending to be a family to force the
government's hand. the government needs to do that. the president's been complaining he doesn't have the person power to do it. that's probably a legitimate complaint. but he can send more resources and more people there. >> judge, there's a choice that's given to the adult about staying incarcerated with the family or separating from the children, is that right? >> depends on what you mean by family and how old the children are. if the children are minors, the government cannot keep them from their parents for -- away from their parents for more than 20 days. if the children are adults, they can all be kept in confinement until their hearing comes but the government can find the facilities are bursting at the seems which is part of the reason -- the other part being political -- the president said we'll ship them to san francisco, chicago, new york, other sanctuary cities. the practical effect of that is allowing them to be assimilated to the united states. shipping to new york doesn't put them in a detention center it lets them off a bus and they go
where they want. maria: this group was 400 people, this was just one group of three groups and like i said, the border pa l patrol agent te they arrested 980 individuals, they illegally crossed in three separate groups. he sent this video last night because he wanted me to understand the imagery and because we're going to go to the border soon. so that's why he sent me that. >> if those people are from mexico they can send them back. maria: they're from central america. >> their hands are tied. maria: the three groups that crossed the border last night are from central america and they look like families. dagen: you can't quickly send minors back to noncontiguous countries like those in central america because of the regulation that william bil wil, at the end of the bush administration, they were trying to do the right thing and it has basically given an incentive for minors and families, whomever,
to send minors into the united states because they cannot -- >> the government can't take a 5-year-old and say go across the border. that's child abuse to the 5-year-old which is what the federal law prohibits them from doing. >> how do we deal with the fact -- i think there's a lot of pressure at the legitimate ports of entry. there are people that are going to the ports of entry, there's pressure there which led to folks crossing illegally into tucson area, in the el paso area. >> if you're online at a portal, either because you think you can gain entry from lawful means, it could be asylum, the patient has to hear your case. the government is required under the law to make an investigation of who you are and why you're here. those are not illegal. dagen: i've got to push back. >> what we're seeing back is illegals on the screen. the people you're talking about online are not illegal. they may not qualify to get in. it is law lfuful to get in the e
and attempt to qualify. dagen: this law to basically curb child trafficking, it created an incentive for smugglers, for criminals to try and send minor children into the united states with adults accompanying them, whether they're parents or not. that law is not just about 5-year-olds. it covers all minors. it created this incentive for people to come here. they know if they can get to to border and they have a minor child with them, they'll basically never get sent back. >> the law is often compromised, it's often response to recent public events and often has unintended consequences. sometimes the consequences are the opposite of what the law was intended to do. >.dagen: people in washington don't know what they're doing. maria: i want to thank the r border patrol agents for sending us this video yesterday of the 90 people that -- 980 people
that were apprehended at the border. this story is a crisis. will you agree with that? >> yes, yes, and the government has to ahe's dres address it, we appropriate resources to examine these people as they knock on the door. maria: judge, good to see you. thanks so much. let's get to microsoft unveiling a new version of the x-box 1-s. cheryl: it's interesting, maria. the x-box is cheaper but it doesn't have the blue ray disc drive in it. microsoft says they're hoping the new console will attract younger gamers who didn't grow up with physical media like discs. the $250 device will be available on may 7th. well, ten robots from boston dynamics showing their stuff off, strong enough to pull a big truck across the company's parking lot. look at that. this is crazy. the 66 spot mini robots doing the work of sled dogs.

but when i started seeing things, i didn't know what was happening... so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong... but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid. the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's.
don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid.
maria: welcome back. we're coming to you outside on the plaza at fox headquarters to show you the luxury crossover, lincoln is revealing its brand-new 2020 corsair suv at the new york auto show this week. it takes some of the stylings from the ford escape series. we're getting a first look right now. joining me right now is the president and cmo of ford, joy falatico. great to see you. thank you for joinings us. >> thank you for having us back here. we're really excited to share with you all new suv from lincoln, new he' newest edition. what i would like to do is get you inside and show you some of the incredible -- maria: tell me about the front of the car and the design of this before we go in. >> absolutely. this is consistent with our brand dna that you see in the navigator, the nautilus, the off yateser coming -- aviator coming out this summer. you can see the grill and the design features on the side of the vehicle. maria: what are you seeing in terms of reception so far?

where the bond vigilantes have to pick up mantle from fed the fed discharged monetary policy to the marketplace by essentially saying we are going to back off let this economy run inflation run hotter i think you will see, more and more of that dynamic in the coming weeks because we are kind of setting up for a dead-cat bounce in the economy we have had three months of really weak data especially on consumer front retail sales average down .4/10 each month three months personal income growth consumption spending overall averaged no growth in the three months as well so we've had really, oversized weakness and kind of setting up a coil spring phenomena you also had a huge decline in
energy prices end of last year sort of contributed to that weakness in headlined spending numbers that is reversed with a vengeance first quarter as you know, oil prices are up 20 dollars barrel gas prices up 50 cents a gallon that is going to inflate headlined spending numbers and inflation numbers. >> you are looking for a dead-cat bounce fort economy, meaning you are looking for better-than-expected economic data. >> i know did not fall the out of your chair. >> [laughter] >> positive economic data. >> i think the bear will surprise on upside we have had all this with overwhelming weakness if you look at that composite economic surprises, citigroup economic surprise index basically tallies every data point either better or worse than expected we got so depressed at levels from when data usually posts sharp rebound then you have seasonal factors that will contribute to that the first quarter
tends to be really depressed now moving into april area where data actually should start to surprise on the upside so we have all these he forces between energy, the three months of really depressed consumer spending the seasonal tailwinds will contribute to give us upside surprises but what i worry about exactly what you talked about the top that is that the fed has now stood back, at precisely the moment when the economy could start to look a little stronger and that is going to force bond vigilantes basically to come out of woodwork and try to tamp down that economic activity. >>. dagen: has market though the stock market already factored in this bounceback in the economy we have double-digit gains all major market gauges this year i wanted to point out dow is 1.4 away from all-time high. >> yeah. >>. dagen: s&p 500 less than one percentage point away from record incredible run in the
markets this year despite the fact, that not just our economy is strong but europe looks awful as maria pointed out barely growing a globally slowdown. >> right. i think part of the there are a couple factors that really contributed to this sharp rebound we have seen first quarter one is that it got aany he annilated fourth quarter realization not going off the precipice a large part what happened to the bond market we were talking when we got to 3.3 on 10 year that was it market collapsed because we couldn't withstand rate of higher interest rates market has now rallied all the way from 3.3 to 2.3 starting to creep back up, on 10 year, so i think that drop in interest rates is a major tail wind to the stock market. in the first quarter, and this is why again, i come back to this idea that the bond vigilantes are going to wake
up from the slumber they have been in last few years, and if they do, that is going to be a sfloob what do you mean what are you expecting from bond vigilantes? >> when the 10 year was 3.3 in september of last year, speculators so short that they were thinking rates were going to keep heading higher with not only expecting rates to head higher they were doing it in record fashion, they actually were short twice, the prior record amount they had ever been short 10 year so they were really convinced that we had turned the corner bond bull was over, you know when going to rereverse three decades triple digit sign theres. >> back down to 2.95%. >> because they completely covered this position from insanely short to basically back to neutral, so now is the point where they are going to have to you know get burned agains, i think we will see the stronger force that forces them to reevaluate, if the
bond vigilantes, you annoy will recall, back in 1994 you know the bond vigilantes, earned the reputation giving us the worse sell eve in the bond market since i think 1926 in a respect depressed stock market could see repeat that have scenario. dagen: year a derivative collapse, david, askin, orange county -- >> bankrupt. >> anybody a bond nerd remembers that gives. maria: you say 1994. >> when fed stopped in terms of stopped raising rates because then we decent a rate hike the markets -- dagen: i just want to add to something to that, because back then, greenspan was running the fed, it
communicated very differently, about with the public and there was a surprise rate hike, in february of that year, that kind of was the domino that kicked everything o over in being fixed income. >> right. >> that was it. >> pivoted. >> a lot of people prepared for -- compared to 49 because of that pivot federal reserve. >> out of nowhere right now jay powell maybe to president trump sitting with phone getting ready to tweet about him any moment not going to pull that not going to pull a fast one on markets my argument. >> i feel the analog to this was green spann 1987 just taken over the chairmanship, and he raised rates, and then market collapleansed not dissimr powell expected came in raised rates we get fourth quarter meltdown. >> inflation i want to get to that right i think there are so many things in my i lifetime how low unemployment could go, what the impact of inflation is like, like easing
eggs were bad in i think the theory could have higher inflation is accurate there is no -- unemployment far lower that have been told 5, 6% grammar school now go much lower 2, 3% why can't inflation be higher without adverse effects. >> you are talking to one who doesn't worry about inflation i think inflation is a problem we don't face, mostly because i think we are just far too levered as economy i don't know where we get wherewithal to handle increase in inflation there isn't that room that mantle of leverage depressing economic activity broadly including prices. maria: there is no inflation if you look at ppi, cpi could talk about other than wages you are expecting productivity to pick up so quick just to be clear you think we see better than expected economic data that is a signal to buy stocks are you looking for upper trade. >> i think better-than-expected data
brings foshth the bond vigilantes pushing rates back toward that 3% number that many be a negative a headwind for stocks so good news could be bad news in this snare. >> president trump tweeted here is what he said democrats in congress must return from their vacations and change it is immigration laws or the border despite great job by border patrol will only get worse big sections of wall being built writes this pet merger trouble activism mobile sprint marriage may be in general sell-off under way in stocks beyoncé surprise dropping a live coachella album where you can find it right after this. ♪
