"mornings with maria" begins right now. ♪ get up right now. ♪ all we got is right now. ♪ you are way too far away. ♪ we can't get back yesterday. ♪ but we own right now. ♪ we've got right now. ♪ so get up right now.
♪ all we've got is right now. ♪ maria: let's check markets this morning, take a look at futures as we expect the market to open flat, really. we got a market that is down predominantly. the dow industrials down 26 points right now, s&p 500 down 2, and the nasdaq however is up. it is up 9 and three quarters points right now. we're watching earnings, we've got technology earnings in full swing, amazon posted a double beat last night. the company says it plans to spend upwards of $800 million, making one day delivery free for amazon prime members. the stock this morning is up about 1% after the moves last night. joining us right now is bell point chief strategist david nelson. it's good to see you this morning. >> thanks for having me. maria: your reaction to the amazon numbers. >> there's probably something for bulls and bears in this report. certainly a monster bottom line beat. it's important to note that this is a company that can print just
about anything it wants. all they have to do is cut back on cap ex and you can flow the earnings. for the bears, what they'll point to is the slowing revenue growth. we're down to 16, 17%. that's below what we've seen in previous years. and maybe the law of large numbers is starting to step in for this company. i think you hit on an important point. the big news was last night on the call talking about the rollout of this new service for prime. if you think back 14 years ago is when they introduced two day delivery. now they're going to try to get that down to one day. and it's almost a trojan horse as morgan stanley points out this morning. they're going to move into the logistics business pretty heavily. maria: they're trying to get into every business i feel like. when amazon gets in the business, you better watch out below. >> that's maybe the only risk for this p company is regulatory. people are going to look at this company as they march from business to business to business and people -- somebody in washington is going to want to do something about that. unfortunately, the anti-trust laws were really designed to
deal with a company like, say, standard oil. not going to really work for an amazon. if they're going to do anything, they would have to rewrite anti-trust. maria: let's talk about the other earnings, chevron, exxon mobil, american airlines. your reaction to the earnings picture so far. i feel like the estimates have come down so much that they actually beat the lowered estimates. >> we've been had. the ceos back in the last quarter, they were tripping over themselves to cut guidance, coming into this quarter. and you saw it in the semis, you saw it across the board. six months ago, numbers for semis including intel were down from $1.07 down to 87-cents. they barely made the number. that was true for a lot of companies. they stepped over the lowered bar because analysts cut to cuto far. maria: what are you expecting for the rest of the year. >> we still interest all the usual suspects to worry about, china trade, a paralyzed washington, and look, we're not cheap at this point. we're just under 17 times earnings. i think the one thing that i
look at is interest rates. as long as interest rates remain benign, then stocks are just a better asset class. maria: you don't think the fed is going to move, raising rates. >> this is largely on the heels of the fed, a reversal from jay powell and company. without it we wouldn't have had the recovery we had. maria: do you think they cut rates at any point this year. the european economy is lucky if it grows 1% right now. >> it's a possibility. we don't live in a vacuum. they understand that now. i think that was the mistake. what we saw last year was a policy mistake. what i would rather see them do is focus on the balance sheet. i think it's a mistake to stop rolling that off, even at 3.5 trillion where they get down to, that's seven times where we were prethe financial crisis. maria: they were on auto pilot at the end of last year. >> that was the problem. maria: they needed to look at that and say wait a minute, we're on auto pilot, let's look at the economy and assess. that's a form of tightening. >> it is. it is. but i thought they could have done something on an incremental
basis. to do nothing, how long are they going to go? at some point i think they have to address it. for now, the markets like that. maria: we will b leave i leave. great to see you this morning. we want to turn to uber, the company is ready to kick off its invest erode show today. however, going into the road show it's actually lowering its valuation target ahead of next month's expected ipo. jackie deangeles is looking at this this is morning. >> this is such a highly anticipated ipo, especially the pipeline is starting to open and you're right, they did lower the valuation. 80 to $90 billion instead of 90 to $1 billion. $100 billion. they're looking for 40 to $50. this is interesting because it's a conservative approach as this company is getting on the road to assess investor appetite. this comes after lyft went public on march 29th at the nasdaq. that price, 70 to 72. it popped over $87 in its
opening trade. it's down 22% since then. so a lot of people said uber has the advantage because it's going second. well, lyft didn't do so well. in some senses, a lot of investors are wondering if they want to step into this. the wall street journal is reporting a lot of big interest in it. the conversations are going to continue. they'll have to sell the company in the road show. maria: that's amazing, this company has incredible valuation, even though they cut it, jackie, it's a lot higher than something like a lyft and lyft hasn't made a dime. >> absolutely. and that's what everybody has been saying since talk of uber coming public at all, is this company actually worth that valuation. that's what investors are going to have to determine here. there's a lot of excitement around ipos right now and a lot of interest in it generally on the floor of the stock exchange, the traders saying we're glad the pipe is opening up. you want to make sure you're getting into a good investment. maria: we'll keep watching that.
thanks so much. intel is out with an earnings warning this morning. cheryl casone on that in headlines this morning. cheryl: good morning. some rough news for intel shareholders. the stock tumbled in the post market, in the premarket as well, and is down as you can see more than 7.5% right now. they issued a disappointing outlook to investors. the new ceo, bob swan, lowered the revenue guidance for the rest of the year due to a dramatic slowdown in china and weaker demand from cloud computing companies. the down beat guidance coming as intel's latest earnings actually topped expectations. a stock to watch today. shares of ford are rallying after its latest earnings came in better than expected. ford's operating profit jumped 12% from a year ago thanks to strong gains in pickup and sub salesuvsales in the u.s. people love their trucks. they were hurt by lower vehicle sales worldwide. good news, bad news from deutsche bank this morning. the european investors are
watching, the bank announced cost cutting, helped boost the first quarter profits. 67% jump there. but they cut their 2019 revenue target saying had they expect essentially flat full year revenues. the earnings report coming just one day as we reported yesterday, the bank ended merger talks with that smaller rival commerce bank. and merger talks to tell you about in the car industry. renault planning to propose a partnership with nissan. this is according to the journal. nissan and renault will receive a roughly 50% stake in the new company. reports say renault made a similar offer in january after their alliance was rocked by the arrest of former nissan ceo carlos ghosn in november. nissan did reject it. so timing is everything, right, with this news with renault. maria: the partnership idea didn't work that well for carlos ghosn, did it? cheryl: no. maria: he's out on bail at this moment. we'll have more news on that this morning. cheryl, thank you. coming up, 2020 presidential race is on, president trump
says, quote, unquote, sleepy joe biden will not be able to do the job and calls him not the brightest light bulb in the group. we'll talk about the big race coming up. the measles outbreak, hundreds of students and staff quarantined at universities this morning. back in a minute with that. ♪ ♪ (vo) i know what you're thinking. electric, it's not for you. and, you're probably right. electric just doesn't have enough range. it will never survive the winter. charging stations? good luck finding one of those. so, maybe an electric car isn't for you after all.

( ♪ ) maria: welcome back. we have a big show this morning. coming up, former speaker of the house, fox news contributor, and author of a new book, newt gingrich is here. author of the capitalist comeback, andy posener joining us this morning.
as well as ken roboff is here ahead of the gdp number that we will be getting. 2020 in focus this morning, joe biden is campaigning for the democratic nomination for president without the endorsement of former president obama. >> i asked president obama not to endorse and he doesn't want to -- we should -- whoever wins this nomination should win it on their own merits. maria: joining the conversation this morning, fox business network's jackie deangeles is here, along with jack brewer is joining us along with real clear politics co-founder and president, tom bevin. thank you for joining us. come on, you ask somebody not to endorse you? do we believe this? >> you know, it's the way you start it off, i think. if joe was to come out and say, you know, oh, me and barack are tied hand in hand, i'm sure he would get backlash. i can't wait to see the battle.
it will be like a first round fight. >> i think you ask, you say i don't want to be endorsed because you're worried you're not going to get the endorsement and if you do, you worry what reperecushions you'll have. maria: -- repercussions you'll have. maria: look at the primary, see what voters decide and get behind the candidate, it makes me feel like he doesn't want biden to be the president, tom. he wants to back a different horse. >> there were questions about why the obamas weren't supporting biden when all the inappropriate touching stuff came out. there were reports that obama was taking meetings with other candidates and so this is not a susurprise that obama is going o stay on the sidelines. nobody believes that biden asked him not to endorse. ridiculous. maria: it's silly. oh, yeah, don't endorse me. i don't want endorsements right now. the president weighed in on joe biden last night. he was on hannity. watch this.
>> i think that when you look at joe, i've known joe over the years, he's not the brightest light bulb in the group, i don't think. but he has a name that they know. maria: the president is starting off with the suggestions about joe biden, sleepy joe, not the brightest light, what's your take. >> i thought sleepy joe was lame. trump has to up his nickname game a little bit. but biden's biggest asset in this field is his electability. right. even folks who he is not their first choice in the democratic primary think he has the best chance of beating trump. that has to be the central theme of his campaign. he has to be able to say, look, your heart may be with one of these other candidates for whatever reason, you may think i'm too old, too white, too male. but i'm the guy who will win,
none of these others can. if he can stick with that, he's got a chance. maria: what's the policy platform? is it just take down trump? >> for a lot of folks, it is. maria: that's it. >> yeah. maria: i don't think that's going to fly for the american people. >> biden has to be careful not to get -- fall in with all these other candidates, get dragged to the left and start endorsing policies like voting for terrorists in prison, things like that. he has to withhold -- withstand that because that's the core of his argument to the electorate. >> i think he has to hit president trump -- president trump has to hit hard on the economy. that's going to be the issue. i think a lot of people will stand back and say can he compete on the economy and would he be able to lead in the same way. maria: with the economy doing as well as it is, they're going to have to come up with something else because the economy, we're looking at record unemployment lows, we're looking
at wages finally rising for the first time in a decade. what do you think, jack? >> i don't think he'll be able to go far enough left, because joe cannot stick to a talking point if it goes too far left. he's going to always be that joe that will say the think he feels. i think he's going to turn off the far-reaching new democratic party that have been coming closer and closer to socialist. maria: is biden a bigger challenge to trump than bernie? or is bernie the real threat? because i think if hillary hadn't totally -- if everybody wasn't in the tank for hillary last time, i think he would have had a real shot, bernie sanders. >> i think so too. i think the problem was people didn't like hillary and they wouldn't give her the vote. they might have given it to him. he might have missed his opportunity in some senses. >> i do think that biden connects more with the working class voter in states that will matter, pennsylvania, michigan, ohio and the like.
to jack's point, the longer this is wide open and the progressive vote is distributed among a number of candidates, the better chances for biden. >> it's going to be hard for him to get that sanders vote, that aoc kind of vote and that is really an up and coming part of the population. the president doesn't have to worry about that. maria: that's the thing. they're so left that it's even hard for howard schultz, it's hard for a joe biden, because they're trying to sell themselves as moderates. guess what? much of the party doesn't want a moderate. >> i think that gets you into the game but you cannot win the general election if you're that far left. i don't think -- i think if he has to face a bernie sanders, he demolishes him. maria: the nfl draft was last night. we're going to talk about this today. as a former nfl star, jack, what did you think about the draft? >> it was unbelievable to see the crowds.
if you watched that draft yesterday, it's becoming an event like the super bowl. really. i think there was three 400,000 people outside. it's amazing, to see a first round draft pick that is also the first round draft pick in baseball. this kid is a freak of nature. maria: the nfl network, they do a lot of pomp and circumstance around this. >> they do, i think the viewership was estimated to be around 11.5 million. unbelievable. maria: that is unbelievable. we'll talk more about that. we have jack brewer on the panel today. coming up, facebook under investigation for collecting e-mails and it sues three people over instagram likes. wait until you hear this story. the measles outbreak, hundreds of students and staff on two california campuses have been quarantined. that's all next. stay with us. ♪ little, bitty pretty one.

traveling to beijing. >> i've given up forecasting on this. there have been a lot of optimistic stories for the last 6 months, almost all have proved to be premature. people say there will be a trade deal it looks like xi jinping might come to washington in june. donald trump signaling that yesterday but things fall off the cliff so many times. i'm saying who knows? maria: for a while they were back and forth over enforcement action, and enforcement mechanism in this deal. should china steel or go back on its promises, they can snap back to something on tariffs, to enforce the situation. is that the sticking point or is it something else? >> it is enforcement but this is fantasyland. the idea we will put a provision his agreement to china won't retaliate if we impose costs for china breaking the deal, that is ludicrous.
if we think this will work we are just deluding ourselves. >> my question is under previous administrations we tried a get along strategy, not ruffling feathers, trump changed mentality when he came in and punched china in the face, we are taking a different approach. seems you are saying neither approach works. what is the answer? how do we stop china from cheating? countries around the globe agree with the fundamental premise but disagree how to go about it. how do we get this done? >> we need to disengage our economy from china's. maria: how do you do that? second-largest economy. >> it is happening, companies are seeing what is going on in china, losing patience which is why xi jinping is showing flexibility especially in this talk at the forum but companies are starting to say india is important, china's economy slowing, the chinese won't stop stealing. that is the road we need to go.
it is difficult politically to do but nonetheless the economics will dictate that. maria: there was a lot of talk about xi jinping coming here and meeting the president at mara lago and maybe they will send the delegation back in may. what happened? >> steve bannon call it, it is a truce. donald trump sees a need, 2020 elections. xi jinping has a lot of reasons internally for a truce because of a weaker economy. he's getting a lot of flak from people. it will look good for him as well. this isn't going to last. we have decades of failed trade agreement so signing up another trade agreement is not the remedy for decades of chinese dishonesty. >> kim jung un saying the us has been acting in bad faith since hanoi.
during the summit with vladimir putin, it is amazing to me vladimir putin gets involved in everything. kim is warning relations between north korea and the us can return to the original state. >> they eventually will. as we get to 2020, that important date in november democrats will rightly say trump's policies have failed. trump has to pivot. the way he will pivot is to go back to vigorous enforcement of sanctions. kim jung un said we have been bad since the hanoi summit and he got what he wanted from vladimir putin at the summit in vladivostok. kim is stalling. when they talk about multilateral guarantees, sure difficult to negotiate, takes longer to get there. that means kim can stalling for vladimir putin he has to play at the table because russia will be giving those guarantees giving him a veto over the final deal.
and donald trump can turn around and say i have had enough of this and i will start sanctioning the russians, south koreans and make everybody hurt and kim will have no choice but do what trump wants. as you say this is a president who will punch you in the face if you don't given what he wants. >> i am okay with that. maria: what about the death of otto warmbier? the us receiving a $2 million hospital bill from north korea for otto warmbier's care while being locked up in north korea. he died days after being returned to the united states, the washington post reporting the envoy says to retrieve warmbier find an agreement to pay on instructions from donald trump but telling fox news the us did not pay. can you imagine? they killed him in north korea and once money for the care. >> north koreans will never see
a penny of that. what we do to bring people back sometimes people say is too much but important to bring americans back from regimes like that. i'm not terribly flushed about signing an agreement we have no intention to honor. that is what we did. maria: i lived in china and the middle east, two dangerous places if you're detained for some reason. i believe the us should support people if they do run into trouble in these foreign countries and the white house said we are not commenting because our negotiations are private and that helps with the success of them. >> it is important to bring otto warmbier back. these are symbolic and we are not going to leave americans on their hands. on the other hand we are not going to pay. this is similar to what happened in april 2001 with the
navy reconnaissance plane, the chinese give us a bill for room and board and we offer to pay it but the negotiation installed so we never paid the chinese either and we shouldn't pay these regimes. i don't mind agreeing to pay but we should never never ever pay. maria: what is your take about kim jung un and vladimir putin? p is trying to replace the us in the middle east as the outsider and cozying up to north korea to make it look like he had anything to do with these calls for denuclearization. >> the thing about vladimir putin, russia is a superpower, it is a piglet. he doesn't have the resources to trouble us in north asia. is more focused on the middle east, central asia and europe. he will cause real trouble because that is important to him. in north asia he will be devil us and trump can give them a hard time in return which is what our president should do. maria: it is great to see you, thanks so much. new legal troubles for facebook.
>> new york's attorney general is investigating facebook for collecting emails of 1 million users. social network admitted last week it unintentionally uploaded emails of new users and doing it since may 2016. meantime facebook is filing its own lawsuit, suing the company and three people in new zealand for allegedly selling fake likes and followers to instagram users. you may have to find a new way to pass the time at work. facebook is cracking down on personality quizes. quiz apps it will be banned completely but they will be subject to and scrutiny. the new policy a year after cambridge analytic a breached data about millions of facebook users without their permission. speaking of personality quizzes, big technology leaders coming up short on one part of the character test given by hedge fund founder.
elon musk, bill gates and jeff bezos scored well for being assertive and open-minded, another category, concern for others. the low score doesn't mean the leaders are heartless but won't let her feeling stand in their way. a similar personality test of people looking to join his company. bridgewater associates, the largest hedge funds, $150 billion on assets under management. i agree with the bill gates part of this. that is my opinion. maria: what do you think? >> great value. when he talks i listen. >> it is interesting to see what these folks are successful in business when they share traits like that. it is fascinating to watch. maria: they have done so well. and maybe not the best
characteristic, propelled them to their success. maria: when we come back we are back in business on earnings. american airlines hitting the tape next hour, all numbers we have for you coming up. the end of an era, avengers end game shakes up to smash box office records. a full film roundup back in a minute. ♪ i will love you forever ♪ and ever ♪ and every ♪ together ♪ together ♪ ♪

maria: we have breaking news on newbury, the company announcing it expects its ipo price to price between $44, and $50 a share and revealing the ipo will release 180 million shares of stock. jack you reported on this at the top of the show. >> the company is going with that conservative strategy. we were talking round numbers on valuation of $120 billion. even at the high end of the range they are well below that so they are taking a close approach, investors excited about this deal mostly because of what they saw happen with left. it is a different company but at the same time you have to take your cues from the market. maria: what about lift and the
fact that it hasn't made many, the company went public and did well on day one and proceeded to trade down. should we be looking at left as a predicate for what might happen with huber? >> that is what a lot of people will do even though companies are different and there are nuances and ambassadors will be looking at that but that is the precedent that has been set. maria: we have been covering lift and a lot of news, really busy week. look at the highlights on "mornings with maria" in case you missed it. >> 33,000 emails, didn't have somebody bust up his phone with a hammer and didn't bleach bit which is what organized criminal do and terrorists launder money. she did obstructive acts, precisely what couldn't be found with regard to the president. maria: your reaction to the mueller report? >> great news for the country, we don't want our president to

i remember this time last year i didn't know what situation the nfl would be in. you talk about the concussion issues, you talk about all the things from the player kneeling issues. the nfl is so rei'll correspondent. resilient. it's like that shield can't be stopped. maria: it's true. they've got sunday and thursday on fox. they've got espn on monday. the nfl network is doing all of this, like a big presentation around the nfl draft. how does that work where the nfl has the nfl network and they have amazing partners in fox, among others. >> they've been so creative with tv deals and contracts, the way they negotiate them. take for example the draft. you have three different networks, each day, that are covering the of draft. draft. the first round picks, you had that today you'll have second and third round which is another event. saturday, you have rounds four through seven which another network is going to carry and the ratings continue to
skyrocket. maria: it's really become a real event. we're going to talk about that this morning. first, our top story right now, that is the trump economy. president trump touting tax cuts and economic accomplishments in an interview with shawn hannity last night. watch. >> we have the biggest tax cut in the history of our country. we have gotten rid of the individual mandate. we had the biggest cut in regulations, which is one of the things creating all of these great jobs because we have the best unemployment numbers that we've ever had. today we have the most people working, literally today, just came out, we have the most people working that we've ever had in the history of our country, almost 160 million people are working, they have jobs. it's incredible. the economy is setting records. when foreign leaders come to he see me, they say thank you, it's great to meet you, sir, and congratulations on your economy. it's the greatest economy anywhere in the world. which it is. nobody is close to us. and that's because of the things
we've done. maria: we're going to get another window into that economy this morning when we get the gdp data. that's coming out in an hour and-a-half. stay with us on that gdp number coming out. joining us right now to talk about that is the wall street journal hjournal globaleconomicn hilsenrath. sporting a beard this morning. >> i took a few days off and didn't shave. maria: it looks good. i'm a fan. thank you for being here. what's the take on the economy right now? what's your expectation on the gdp? is that priced into the market, do you think? >> i think the watch word on the gdp report today is going to be resilience. that's the key word that i'm looking at. when we started out the first quarter a lot of estimates for growth were really ratcheted down by these investment banks on wall street because we had the government shutdown, we had financial markets in a tizzy late last year, we had concerns about trade. as the quarter progressed, as we got into april and we really
started seeing data on how things worked, all of those estimates for first quarter growth came up and we're now looking at some number in excess of 2%. that's pretty good because first quarter tends to be a soft quarter and the face of all the head winds like the government shutdown to get a number of two plus percent i think will be a strong sign for the economy. maria: so what happens next? i mean, we were all worried at the end of last year about things slowing down, the federal reserve totally pivots. you've got a fed meeting next week, potential nominee stephen moore says he's committed to the process but would bow out if he's a liability. first, give me your expectation for the fed meeting next week, then i want to get your take on stephen moore. >> i don't think the fed is going to do anything. they've signaled pretty clearly they don't intend to do anything right now. since we're talking about numbers, you have to look forward to the inflation numbers coming out of the commerce department on monday.
inflation looks like it's softened and if it under-shoots the fed's 2% inflation target for a few more months, we could be talking about interest rate cuts later this year. which again, will add juice to the economy. since we're looking forward on growth, i think there's going to be an agreement in august or september for more spending out of washington in the new fiscal year. so i think that's also going to add some tailwinds to this economy. so low inflation and strong growth, the fed could be on hold. it could even be cutting rates. but i think the fed is really a positive for this economy right now, not a headwind. maria: you think stephen moore makes it? >> that's really hard to say. it's going to be -- i think this one -- the kane case did not go to the senate. i think the stephen moore case will go to the senate. i think it will be a close call.
really as to whether republicans want to get behind their own man. s he's been a partisan for republican policy making. we have to see if the party lines up behind him. >> john, it's jackie. great to see you this morning. >> great to see you. >> i want to go back to the point you made about the potential for inflation to be under the target and the fed to say we actually need to cut rates. if you had to game the chances on that, what would you say? >> well, some of it is going to have to do with energy prices, which are hard to predict. if they continue to rise over the next few months and the headline inflation numbers pick up then maybe the fed says no. what i'm looking at on monday is prices excluding food and excluding energy, the last couple readings we've seen on this have been soft and a lot of people on wall street are talking right now about what the fed did in the mid-1990s when they saw global head windswindsd
saw inflation soften and they took out insurance. they didn't say we'll do a whole bunch of interest rate cuts but they did one or two. they might be talking about an insurance l policy if they see these inflation numbers soften. >> john, this is tom b bevin. we've been talking about how democrat as we head into the campaign how they'll attack trump on the economy, it's one of his strongest points. what can the democrats point to to make their case why they can do a better job on the economy than trump's done? >> well, you know, i think a really big part of this upcoming election is going to be about the question of inequality. and a lot of republican supporters, a lot of supporters of president trump are blue collar workers and a lot's going to come down to the question of are they participating in the upturn that we're getting. we're seeing a lot of growth in urban areas, in rural manufacturing areas.
they've been through a long, hard period of competition from the rest of the world and we have to see if that's really -- if the economy's resilience right nows is feeding out to those groups and i think that's going to be the case that democrats make, that they can address issues of inequality and the evenness of growth as it's been spread. maria: that's definitely the issue. we'll get the gdp -- did you want to say something else, john? >> yeah. i want to ask jack a question. i'm a big football fan. i want to know how my giants did last night. do you think they solved their problems? maria: good question. >> that's a great question, brother. i love the beardism going for b. i'm going for the same look. i'm an optimist. >> that's a bad introduction. [ laughter ] maria: that's a bad beginning. that's a bad beginning. >> i know. maria: what the heck happened to the giants? >> listen -- maria: they lost jack brewer, that's one thing. >> that was a long time ago. i will tell you this, if that boy comes out and throws the boy
well after he replaces eli, we'll all be happy. we did pick up a great cornerback, that was an awesome pick at the end of the first round. i feel like he's going to make a lot of plays. >> i feel better now. maria: i just tweeted out a picture of you and your new beard. we'll see what viewers say. >> let me know. that will decide whether i shave this weekend or not. maria: viewers will decide. we'll see you soon. have a good weekend. coming up, earnings in focus this morning, american airlines due out later this hour. exxon mobil and chevron report reporting next hour. we'll have analysis. walmart taking shopping to the next level, the retail giant unveils the store of the future. we'll bring you there. next up. stay with us. ♪ it's like i waited my whole life. ♪ for this one night. ♪ it's going to be you and me on the dance floor.

we're waiting on the ipo. i guess lyft took the expectations down a bit. >> there will be a lot of focus on this. uber was the bigger name. lyft was the test case. when it went public march 29t march 29th. it soared that day well over the pricing, over $87, it priced 70 to 72 and then the drop now since it's been trading, more than 20%. so investors got really excited and then potentially burned there. that's what traders are going to be thinking about. maria: the company loses loses money, no profit yet. we're seeing the ipos, it's great, good for the markets but differentiating who is profitable and who isn't is important. >> it's important. the expectations are hopefully long-term, sort of getting in early on some things but have you to be careful about it. >> how do you price in the fact that we know that the pricing is going up, they've got to raise their fares for cu for youtube m

jail last night with conditions. ghosn said this in a statement, i maintain my innocence and am committed to vigorously defending myself against these meritless accusations. i hope to be given a fair trial where the truth will come to light and i will be vindicated. joining me right now frank ravich. thanks for joining us. you've got to explain the judiciary system in japan for us. right from the get-go, i reported on this program that i felt this was a total coup, that carlos ghosn was thrown in jail because the government as well as a lot of people under him were worried they were going to merge renault and nissan. he was just let out with these conditions that he's not allowed to speak to his wife which is extraordinary. can you explain how the japanese judicial system works that they can throw a guy in jail without any due process? >> this is actually an issue that's very controversial even in japan.
the pretrial detention system there, what they're going for, they try to get concessions. they have a very high conviction rate, a big part of that is because they use -- they're able to use things like isolation and pressure to try to get confessions and, you know, there's a few factors there. i mean, one is what's happened with him -- i mean, there's a few things that are unusual, for example, being re-arrested after coming out on bail. a lot of this is stuff that japanese legal scholars and others have complained about as being a real problem in the system, where you can be detained, interrogated, your lawyer won't necessarily be present when you're interrogated even though you have a right to a lawyer. so it's really a proble problemc
situation. there's and amendment that's proposed that would change that. for now, obviously that's not in place. maria: do you think he's going to get a fair trial? i mean, that's all he wants is a fair trial. >> that's a really fascinating question, because japan is very -- for all the lack of due process during the detention phase of things, there really is pretty good due process at the trial level but it's a fascinating cultural thing because in japan what they really want to see is contrition. they want to see people -- most trials in japan are not about challenging the claims of the prosecutors. they're about lowering sentences. because frequently it's based on concession. but in less than 10% of cases are people actually challenging the charges. when they do, there is a -- i think there is a chance at a fair trial. maria: they've been keeping him in detention with the lights on
24/7. they took away his watch. he's got the lights on all day long. this is a way to torture him so that he doesn't know what time it is, what day it is and now he has agreed to these strict conditions for his release. he's not allowed to contact his wife. my sources tell me he will not be able to speak to his wife, carol, without a lawyer present. i spoke with carol ghosn earlier this month in an exclusive interview and this is what she told me, what happened when the officers raided their home and then they interrogated her. she didn't commit any crime. listen to this. >> they took my passport. i didn't understand why they took my passport. i'm not under arrest. i'm not a suspect. they took my phone. they took my laptop. they took these letters that i wrote every day to carlos while he was in the detention center. they took all the papers that his lawyers gave him regarding the case, which is -- they're not supposed to take all these
things. and then they wanted to take me in for questioning and i said no, i want a lawyer, i'm an american citizen. maria: she was here, she was crying on-set. she was so upset, frank. jack brewer is with me this morning. look at the pictures of carlos ghosn. he's been completely diminished and for what? because he wanted to merge a french company with the jewel that is nissan of the tokyo government. >it's.>> it's heart-breaking. look at the front page of the wall street journal. the man looks like he aged 25 years. at what point does this become a human rights issue? maria: what do you think, frank? >> i think there's a lot going on here. i mean, these detentions that happen, i mean, it's not like people are hosing him down with water and things like that. what they use to get the confession is isolation. the reason a watch is taken away, they're worried about
people committing suicide. they take anything away that could be used in that way. but what they're really doing, the isolation is really pretty horrific. so in a japanese prison, their prisons are light years ahead of ours in terms of cleanliness, food, things like that. but during the detention period, you're truly isolated and that is a way to try to get a confession out of him. with that said, i'm not -- this is something that the trial will show. i'm not 100% convinced this is all about nissan because of the fact that renault, the investigations in france by renault were turned over to prosecutors there and so i think that there is some concern i think with these newer charges. the older charges from march have to do with the japanese law in 2009 which required executive compensation to be divulged.
there could have been some innocent mistake on his part in terms of how -- in japan, compensation has to be divulged when fixed, not when released. maria: look, i am being told that the reason they came up with this new charge and this new restriction that he's not allowed to speak to his wife is because she did an interview with me and she went and wrote an op ed in the washington post. they want to shut her up. so she comes to this set two weeks ago, she sits here, she does an interview with me. the japanese prosecutor was mad that she spoke out and told us and by the way, i was supposed to do an interview with core loswith carlosghosn and they fod re-arrested him. they want to shut them up. >> i think this -- one of the fund mental problems with the japanese detention system is that they -- frequently, when someone is about to be released, they'll file new charges so that
the person can be held longer. i'm not sure there as worried about the western media as we think that they are. there's sort of a rigidity within the japanese system. people are sort of following the rules. one of the interesting things about them preventing him from speaking to her, there's this element in the japanese criminal process where if someone is -- there's a fear that someone will hide evidence or -- maria: they think she's going to destroy evidence. frank, it's great to get your a take on this. thanks very much. i should point out that today president trump is hosting prime minister abe at the white house. i don't think this is going to come up. but it's interesting to take note of that. quick break and then walmart is getting smart, the retail giant unveils its store of the future, complete with artificial intelligence. we'll show you that when we come back. flying high on earnings, american airlines set to report right after this break.

they don't run a lot of flights a day, just 115 flights a day out of 6500 flights but the impact on 2019 pretax earnings from that, from the grounding of this boeing jet, $350 million. investors not liking thus far this earnings report from american, a beat on the top line, slight miss on the bottom line. maria: the stock is down as you said and we'll be watching that. thank you so much, lauren simonetti. meanwhile, our top story this half hour, capitalism versus socialism, looks like that's what the 2020 presidential race is setting up to do. bernie sanders and elizabeth warren campaigning on platforms that increase taxes on millionaires and billionaires, but recent tax returns show that sanders is a millionaire himself. here's senator sanders during his recent fox news town hall. >> we have an absurd tax system and while millions of people today are paying actually more in taxes than they anticipated,
amazon, netflix, and dozens of major corporation as a result of trump's tax bill pay nothing in federal taxes. i think that's a disgrace. this year, we had $560,000 in income. that's a lot of money. and that money in my case, my wife's case, it came from a book that i wrote, pretty good book. you might want to read it. it's a best seller. it sold all over the world and we made money. so if anyone thinks i should apologize for writing a best selling book, i'm sorry, i'm not going to do it. in my view, people, whether it's me, you, probably make a lot more money than i do, but whether it's me or you or anybody else, i think wealthy people and large corporations that are making billions in profits should start paying their fair share of taxes. maria: joining us right now is the former cke restaurant ceo, former labor secretary nominee as well and the author of the
capitalist comeback, author andy puzer. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. maria: what do you think about this the presidential election being set up, capitalism versus socialism? >> i think it's great. i think it's a huge win for the president. we had an -- you had an earlier guest talking about income inequality being a big issue in the election. i would like to see people on the news networks focus on how democrats measure income inequality. what they usually use is a report by a professor named sas out of u.c. berkley which uses pretax income and pregovernment transfers income. he ignores the fact that the top 20% of earners pay 95% of taxes and that ignores the fact that a lot of that money gets transferred to the bottom 20% through things like medicare, medicaid, food stamps, section 8 housing. you're not accurately measuring income inequality. the cbo looked at it, found it was 25 to 30% less if you
included the government transfers and taxes. the second thing is, if you just want to look at wages, that's great. under president trump, wages have been up over 3% for eight consecutive quarters. maria: yeah. >> if you look at lower income people like people in restaurants and hotels, it's up about 5%. harder to find blue collar workers than white collar workers for the first time in decades. the new york fed came out with a report that said starting salaries over the last four months have gone from $55,000 to $66,000. democrats are going to be in a he position of telling working class americans who do you believe, us or your wallets. maria: the democrats are saying, though, that a big portion of the population does not have any money for an emergency. they can't come up with $400 if they had an emergency. so what do you think the answer is to lift people out of poverty, to lift the lower end of the income scale? >> look, there's only one way to reduce income inequality and make sure people at the bottom end of the income scale have more money. and that's to increase wages.
and the only time wages go up is if you have economic growth, you have employers competing for employees, driving wages up. we've seen that. we've seen that in this economy. amazon, target, costco, have all gone to $15, major banks have gone. bank of america is going to $17, they say they're going to go to $20. that's going to drive wages up. it will reduce income inequality. maria: well, wages are up, tom, 3 and a quarter percent year over year. >> this is tom bevin. >> hey, tom. >> good to see you. >> good to see you. >> the reason democrats are proposing many of these policies, elizabeth warren came out with a student -- canceling all student loan debt. we're talking about medicare for all, talking about free child care, et cetera, et cetera. it's because there is actually some popularity among the public for these policies. trump admitted that democrats -- this is going to be a challenge for him. democrats want to say, i think he said a rolls royce in
everyone's pocket. how does trump combat that, knowing there's parts of the population that are open to these kind of socialist type policies. >> two things about that. one is, you could implement all of elizabeth warren's tax increases and all of bernie sanders social redistributionist policieses that take the tax dollars and spread them to the bottom, the way they measure income inequality it wouldn't change it one dollar. president trump has a problem. it's hard to fight against free stuff. if the american people don't want economic growth, if they don't want to see their lives improve based upon what they do, if they don't want to see the kind of society that a capitalist economy cree is a, if they just want free stuff like the people in venezuela once did or the soviet union or cuba, well, then they should vote for people like bernie sanders who loves being a millionaire, isn't at all ashamed of it. criticizes amazon and netflix for not paying taxes. he criticizes them. however, he used every deduction he could to lower his taxes. he took full advantage of the
tax rates and the tax bill he voted against. he then comes out and says well, i paid what i owed. guess what? so did amazon and netflix. they're all paying what they owe. he's a hypocrite. he's out to get power. he does everything -- look, it's sort of a do what i say, not what i do type of philosophy. i'm not ashamed of being rich. neither is president trump. maria: good point. go ahead, jack. >> this is jack brewer. >> hi, jack. >> the heart and soul of america, the american working class, want to reward people that work at the end of the day. i think it's really a messaging issue that i see for the republicans to be honest with you. because if bernie sanders goes out to certain populations and is showing that amazon or google is paying a small amount of taxes, that could get into the ears of a lot of americans. how do the republicans combat that? >> well, first thing i'd do is point out that he's a hypocrite. his defense is that he's paying what he owes. he's criticizing companies that also pay what they owe. i think first of all, what he's
doing is hypocrite call. second of all, we could explain the reasons companies like that aren't paying taxes at the moment. for example, they had big capital losses, there were people that invested in those companies when the stock was very low, put their fortunes into it. jeff bezos spent everything he had on amazon, created the greatest distribution system in the history of the world, benefits all of us and the only reason he's paying lower taxes is because he's recouping the losses that amazon made or amazon is paying less taxes because it's recouping the losses it incurred when it was first formed. so we can explain it. maria: let me ask you about walmart. we've been talking about this this morning. the company unveiled a store in long island powered by a.i., called the intelligent retail lab, uses artificial intelligence powered cameras to monitor inventory and stock levels, andy. this is your business. tell me about this and how a.i. is really going to change the shopping experience. >> i think it will be tremendous for shoppers. i think it will make things
easier. it will also make it so that individual whic businesses are e profitable. they can try and hire better employees, they can lift wage as they compete for employees and businesses will be able to open more outlets. the more profitable an outlet is, the more of them you can open. so it can create more jobs, can increase wages. you've got to remember at the beginning of the -- the end of the obama presidency, beginning of the trump presidency, there was a push in the restaurant sector to automate. and mcdonald's has done is, wendy's has done it. all of the big companies have done it. hiring in that sector has continued to grow. we have more americans working than ever before. a big portion of that comes from the lower end, the lower working class jobs that have been created despite automation. i think if we have economic growth, automation is very healthy because it makes businesses more profitable. they can grow. if we don't have economic growth, it could be a problem because it would replace jobs. >> andy, good morning, it's
jackie. >> hi, jackie. >> i want to get back to the theme of capitalism versus socialism. the two sides have become polarized as of late. joe biden is putting his hat in the race for the presidential race. there was a time when it was good to be middle of the road. actually, is that going to be a disadvantage for him? >> i don't really know if joe biden, i would consider him middle of the road. maybe in today's very, very -- where there's such separation between the parties he's closer to the middle. he was part of the obama administration. if you want the obama administration level of complicc growth, wage growth, job growth, then vote for joe biden. if you want to continue with the great prosperity we've experienced, stick with president trump. maria: we'll leave it there. kyler murray making nfl history, the arizona cardinals taking him at the number one pick.

with the first pick in the 2019nfl draft, the arizona cardinals select kyler murray, quarterback, oklahoma. maria: well, the first round of the nfl draft in the books. it saw plenty of trades and surprises. joining us now is jared max and former safety eric coleman. plus our panel, jack brewer joining us. great to see everybody today. your reaction? eric, thanks for being here.
your reaction. >> i was excited. it's always fun seeing the young men who worked so hard in college get to reach their dreams and get drafted to the nfl and it's an exciting time for the fans as well. maria: jared, what did you think? >> what stole the show last night was christian wilkins who got drafted early on. an exceptional human being, graduated in clemson in three years and went out on stage when he was drafted. rogeroger goodell wasn't ready r it. he jumped up and gave him a shoulder bump and nearly took out the commissioner. two tight ends from iowa taken in the first round. never before have two tight ends from the same school gone in the first two rounds, let alone the first 20 picks. >> and three defensive linemen from clemson. >> in the top 17. >> i thought i was watching the s.e.c. draft for a little while. i think every player was coming outs of s.e.c. it's a testament to what the conference has been able to do with the talent. eric, you and i played during the same time. and to see the draft become what
it's become, the spectacle of what it's become, i would love to hear your thoughts. >> it's amazing. i was at the draft last year in dallas. you would have thought the super bowl was going on during the draft. when i was drafted in 2004, the second round -- the second -- it was saturday and sunday. on sunday, when i was drafted in the fifth round, the first round was on espn. the second round was espn two. my grandmother didn't have espn two at the time. now it's on national networks, getting all kinds of ratings. it's a beautiful thing. >> it really is. i mean, kyler murray, jared, you talked about it before. a guy that can play baseball at that level to then go on and be the first pick in the nfl draft, i said he needs to send a million dollar check to russell wilson. without russell wilson, you would never see a guy that's 5'9", 5'10" picked number one at quarterback position in nfl.
>> doug flute couldn't do it back in the day. two other players in nfl history shorter taken with the first overall pick. we see how much does size matter here in the nfl. murray is the first player ever taken in the first round of both the baseball and football draft. you thought he would go play for the oakland a's. he won the heisman and goes to the nfl. i hope he works out. he's such an exciting player. he brings a great energy. how about that pink suit last night. ever see something like that before? kyler murray first overall last night. eli manning likely successor, daniel jones goes to the giants. giants fans, how were they on daniel jones? >> i watt a was at met life sta. to watch the reaction of the giants fans when daniel jones was picked. it was surprising. everyone was disappointed. i think ultimately the giants got the quarterback who they wanted, a franchise guy who can
succeed eli manning. he trained under coach cutliff who coached eli manning. maria: what happens tonight? >> tonight we have rounds numbers two and three and then on the following day we'll have rounds four through seven. the nfl draft is a tiny bit of what it used to be but what's so amazing about the nfl draft is who goes late. tom brady was a sixth round pick. some of the best players in history were not drafted. how important is the nfl draft? you think of that as a player, when some of the best -- >> it's very important but i think the best thing that i've seen is you're seeing guys come in prepared for the league, not just on the field, but off the field. you're hearing more and more stories about guys that are in the community, doing positive things, like you just said. seeing these players that are getting degrees in three years, amen. amen. maria: awesome. great conversation. eric, thank you for joining the conversation. great to see.

joe biden you have attorney general doing things that she should not have been doing you have to presume that the vice president the president obama knew it then ask you question so did joe biden know any of this was he in loop aware what is going on? i don't think this is going away, i think, now it is going to get worse for the left. maria: really good point what did biden know you have written about this obviously in realclearpolitics we want to know how high up the ladder this was strategy take trump down was so -- i mean just so wide-ranging from informants dossier strategy it is incredible. >> i do think we will get accountability. >> do you? >> i do we may not get as quickly as we want i do think there is going to be accountability we will find out exactly how this happened, i think republicans lindsey graham in senate in particular will will he able to drive
process try to uncover as much get as much transparency we deserve american people deserve it especially after what we went through. >> two years collusion delusion country on goose actuation people like brennan clapper using words like "treesan" and clue collusion" there are so many guilty trying to undermine u.s. constitution this has to about thoroughly looked at let me point out that the mueller at some point, had to know there was no collusion. >> i wonder when he knew it midterm election come and go let midterm elections come and go. >> president united states. >> all about this, collusion newt gingrich great to see you want to get to break gdp on the other side of this break back in a minute.
maria: good friday morning. thanks for joinings i am maria bartiromo. friday april 26 we have waiting on breaking news due out 10 seconds looking for growth at least 2% estimates go up to 2.9% if you believe j.p. morgan waiting on earnings, dow industrials chevron, is -- >> 3.2? -- 3.2% number gdp this morning that is a very strong number for the first quarter advance let's see if any changes looking at oil stocks waiting on chevron the market is coming back from lows here, with gdp number out, up 3.2% much better than estimates call for growth 2%, all the way to 2.9% very strong for the first quarter we had a government shutdown, we had worries about slow growth, and coming off a very -- volatile end of year last year markets
trading volatile and down the end last year first quarter gdp, bouncing back up 3.2%, is the number that is moving markets this morning look at futures in positive territory across the board, dow industrials up 9 s&p 500 up for you and a quarter nasdaq up 33 points first quarter gdp number above expectations, intel exxon pressures on dow industrials however, we are expecting exxon and intel to be lower on heels of disappointments on earnings joining us right now for reaction on gdp number is staefly pomboy great to see you last time you were here you said we are going to start seeing good shoots positive news. >> first quarter number surprise i was this could we would see stronger numbers as we got into second quarter the fact that first quarter growth was so much stronger than expected, is amazing. i was prepared to talk about how inventories were going to
be a contribution to the number that would be part of what was driving it up but wasn't expecting three handle on this number, so it is he going to be interesting to look at details here, built again there was about going to be a big contribution from inventories obviously isn't positive going forward because you have to unwind inventories another contributing factor was going to be trade, where we were actual going to see increase in exports would help drive you know narrow trade deficit less gdp that is not going to continue the strength in dollar is going to being a as headwind to that, i agree with you, maria i mean i think this number was stronger and i think moving through the next let's say four, six weeks we should see stronger consumer numbers going to be really interesting what the consumer spending component was here, but i do think we will see stronger -- >> the personal the personals
consumption number we want to focus on in gdp, last week i interviewed jaime dimond said the consumer balance sheet is best it has been in 30 years because of very low debt, and wages up better than 3% year-over-year. >>is the important thing consumer is your pacing painting them one brush there isn't an average consumer any more there is high end and low end i do think we should see stronger numbers on the consumer front because depressed three mince, part of of that was function of the fourth quarter in markets that wl depressed psychology consumer and corporate front what i think is fascinating about the gdp print sets up dilemma i talked about you talking about risk upside risk that we have the fed meeting
next week, and, you know, what is powell going to say about you back pedaled frantically talking about even pausing unwind of the balance sheet markets pricing in a rate cut then we get this number? i mean i don't know in anyone was looking for 3% growth in any quarter this year, much less the. >> the question what does fed say at that meeting on wednesday, are they going to tilt toward well we are out of the way no rate hikes certainly? people talk about rate cut or going to say things coming back things are strong maybe a rate hike is on the table. >> how manic depressive do they look with apologies to former employer these guys look like jim cramer monetary policy one day think the economy is hot next day they think soft so this is going to set up dilemma for the financial markets that better news now they don't know what
to do with that bond market sell off here? if it does doesn't that have damiening effect on stock market i fear return of bond vigilantes i talked to you about last time stronger growth sets up increased volatility in the financial markets generally not a friend to prices, you know, uncertainty is going to be major issue here around monetary policy. >> does this help take user stance against china trade negotiations. >> a good point -- their data started to look better this number is definitely like i said you know you didn't expect 3% in any quarter much less, the first quarter normally just really seasonally weak. >> jamie dimon told me last week about the consumer and economy today watch this. . >> well will we see in u.s., that is the american consumer balance sheet incomes are going are strong, not weak, more people going back to
workforce which is a good thing, companies are in very good shape profits are good capital expenditures still going up business consumer high level housing in short supply kind of a tailwind fed on pause i think did right thing going to be more time to adjust it a little bit of slowdown but just little slowdown other than trade i am not sure going to stop it next year or two i am prepared for it to get bad i am not predicting it i am saying you can you can actually have a pretty good environment. >> you don't see a recession next couple years. >> i don't. >> where did this come from going to see a recession in 2019, 2020? >> i think one i would have a risk i view as recession comes from the corporate sector he makes a good point that the consumers in better shape than they were that is not the problem this time the problem is at the lefrmgveraging up. >> almost 800 plan corporate
debt 800 billion next year corporate borrowing costs radical back alongside with stock market last few months but still above where xherp in september well above where they were at lows so we are going to see corporations trying to you know, refinance this massive amount of debt, and you know if my concern about return of the bond vigilantes, any sort bearing any fruit could create on the corporate side ultimately hits back to consumers if companies are having strongesh refinancing designate not going to rush out increase wages hire more people it kind of feeds book together. >> skra valid points for sure the bull market sursurpassing 10 year mark measure of conservatives wasn't just seven to 10 year cycle after great recession may have legs to go a lot further. >> what i come back to on the stock market front is all coming down to earnings, i
know, i think that the first quarter obviously, people sort of kitchen sink that we know first quarter numbers are gotten weak the forecast look for an increase in if earnings, in the out quarters ultimately going back to double digits next year, so this is really viewed as a one queue phone everything will recovery and, again, you know my concerns about the corporate borrowing side have me less bullish on earnings outlook i think that could be a risk that may be if you look at guidance for example, even as companies are sort of narrowly beating incredibly depressed guidelines expectations in the first quarter guidance is really fairly negative, certainly very cautious in the out quarter so we will see what happens there i think that could be the real, wriefrnkle what happens with leveraging corporate balance sheets.
>> first reading gdp first quarter up 3.2% estimate calls for growth 2%, this is wildly better than expectations, some people were expecting up to 2.9% was estimate out of j.p. morgan but whatever way you look at it this has smashed through estimates, on gdp number, tom how do you see it? >> well, again i am -- my -- politics i look through political lens huge win for president trump. you know we were talking about, the trade war with china -- just a few weeks .5% growth? first quarter we're 3.2 so the economy continues to be much more resilient than people have estimated. and that bodes welcome for him moving into reelection. >> by the way, we have a huge week next week fomc meeting wednesday, china pmi purchasing managers index a sense of manufacturing in china, for the month of april,
you've got inflation numbers pce coming out next week, of course, a jobs numbers the end of the week no doubt we are going to see wages probably either go up, or stay at a level of 3.2% year-over-year all good news. >> very interesting week you talked about we have all indicators they also have personal income spending numbers broader numbers and it will be interesting to see what powell says about that in the presser, on the first the. it is really this is the conundrum now, if good news good news or is good news bad news. highlights here first quarter consumer spending up 1.2% versus fourth quarter 2 1/2%, you have business investment, up 2.7%, equipment up 2/10 of a percent intellectual property software in terms of business investment, 8.6%, business investment into intellectual property software
up 8 .6% fantastic number people say capex slowed down i am not buying it okay capex into ip up 8 1/2%. >> that is actually that number is stronger the other ones are weaker than expected, although pce was pretty much exactly as expected, the consumer spending number 1-2 i think estimates for 1.1 less than half what it was in the -- >> first quarter up 6/10 of a percent. >> we will see what powell says about that i think that is headier than he might necessarily want to see. all in all this is going to be right now the fed is scratching its head as to what they're going to do i would focus very heavily on a the bond market, over the next few weeks, that is really going to be the story. >> we haven't mentioned chevron earnings mixed more from lauren simonetti chevron quarter. >> maria investors trying to figure out how to responded
this this initially stock went up as opening bell it is a dow component 3% we got on average did go down now up not even a tenth of 1%, 117.98 number impressive was bottom line number eps 1.39 a share as you noted expectation was 1.30 net income 2.6 million dollars better than expected the problem with revenue 35.2 billion the estimate for 38.4 billion. so i am going through this report, of course, we need to listen to the conference call we need to hear if anything i am sure questions from ceo going to be unconvinced is chevron upping bid for anandarko after the bid came in good for oil xaengz you have to remember when a lot started lowering estimates that was when oil was much lower than it is right now, maria, back to you. maria: thank you so much
joining us right now price futures group analystaway in on chevron especially since occidental poet trollium going to be outbiding chevron in acquisition of anandarko offering 38 billion dollars, of course, topping the chevron bid 33 billion dollars, we've got a fight going on for this company. >> you sure do, i think this is the first of many maria, down in permian basin exxonmobil chevron thinks the future in -- >> oil right now, so this is what we're seeing right now at this time, so if you look at what is really going on here, you know with today's earnings it really shows chevron looks like as much better run than exxonmobil if you compare two people chevron has been a leader, they were first in the permian expanding exxonmobil playing a lot of catchup right now compare two earnings of which ron looks like doing
much, much better job one of the problems we had with exxon mobile, of course -- hurt them as well -- >> thank you so much, bill flynn on oil this morning, final comments from you stephanie pomboy when you look where energy is does that the a potential to cut into growth given the fact oil prices up above 60. >> sort of perverse, because the in issue effect is to boost the headlined numbers you know if consumers suddenly you have got to pay more at gas tank you pay that, then when you realize those prices are not coming back down you have to cut back somewhere else ends up having a depressing affect later on the initial impact is to inflate both inflation and spending numbers which is another reason why i think the near-term numbers could continue to surprise on the upside. >> we we leave it there. >> thank you so much, the advance reading first quarter gdp 3.2% much higher than expectations, 2% stuart varney will weigh in on that.
