may take some time. to really unwind. several years. and that may provide opportunities for investors. >> yeah, i think so, sue. i think if you just step back and look at what's happened, this is not the end of the world. me isn it. when you start to look at the u.s. market and what's really happening is money's pouring in to our market. just going into the fixed income like the ten-year u.s. treasury yielding 1.4% now. reality of the situation, i think this is giving the opportunity to retail investor that has a majority of their money in fixed income products, to get out and switch over to equities and if you need dividend pay in equities or growth, that's whe. in fact, the dow jones is almost yielding 3%. which is twice 2.8% twice what a
ten-year treasury, so why would you want to be there, sue? there's a lot of opportunities. i take your point on the idea that the yield is higher, but the investors so far been rewar if they were in bonds as interest rates have come down. they've collected that income. the value has gone up and you can't say th know, if you at the stocks, they're down 1%. the dow is down 1% this year. i know it's been volatile and everybody thinks we're down a lot more than 1%, but overall, the market aes down 1% and when long-term, i think you're better off in equities. yes, people hat tyler, if you on the back of an envelope, how from oney did you really 1.90 to 1.40. >> really? you're not making t much money. >> agree. just addressing the idea that

you go with somebody from the other wing or maybe they need a white male in that spot. geographic distribution. but wn and clinton will have to be out on the campaign trail together a lot this year whether she's not. >> what about the short list for donald trump? >> over there, it's curiouser and curiouser. you saw newt gingrich over the weekend, the fomer republican speaker of the house saying heh. no inbound phone calls so to speak, but he said donald trump might not even start thinking about who his vice president will be until about two days before the convention, so anything's possible over there, too. it is such a wild year. >> it sure is.. met tronic inks a billion dollar hard deal. the medical device maker will buy heart ware which makes products for treating heart disease. down a share. heart ware nearly doubled to
