tv Varney Company FBC February 11, 2016 9:00am-12:01pm EST
thank you so much for joining us. "varney & company" is next. stuart has a huge interview with donald trump ahead in the next hour. stew over to you. >> it will be huge. [laughter] >> thanks maria. and good morning everyone. look, this is going to be one of those days, your money is going to take a hit. first, the fact. stocks down, oil, down. interest rates, way down. and gold -- safe haven going up. you may ask what is beginning on, here's the answer, number one crash in oil is reeking havoc on government and banks the world over. two, much of the world is in recession, and america is slowing down as well that's not good. three, the rush to safety, money pouring into u.s. government bonds that's why interest rates are falling so much, and number four, this question is this another 2008, you start asking that, and you know there's a problem. you add it all up and 30 minutes from now stocks will be down big time.
one last point, what does donald trump think about all of this? he's on the show in this hour. "varney & company" is it be to begin. >> all right everybody i'm going to give you a chain of events that produced what is going to be a big selloff a half hour from now. governments in europe and japan started keeping some of the money that you lent to them. give them $100 and you get $the 99 back that is bad. banks not make money with this going on. down go bank stocks way down. that's bad. but price of oil crashes to a new low. stocks take another hit. independent oil companies are insolvent that is bad. worldwide financial turmoil yes there's a flight to safety. that is what is going on. here's market watcher jeff seeker. all right jeff, here's the question everybody ising can ask
this. is this a repeat of 2008? >> i think there's a lot of similarities. i think there's things about market that concern me more than 2008. primarily because this is a market that has been built on this sense of desperation that the fed was able to satisfy by all of these different desperate measures, rates, negative interest rates, all of these precincting everything they've been able to do. but the problem is, we have a vulnerability in banking especially in europe and china, that is to me ownerrous on this. >> banks right at the very center of this latest turmoil that is just leak 2007. bank stocks going way, way down. explain the relationship here. why are bank stocks down so much? i've got european banks down 15% today. >> right here's the problem banks have been lulled into a false sense of security just like investors.
banks believe that central banks in europe and asia, and u.s. that their central banks bail them out. we initiated too big to fail. we have bailed out banks when they got this trouble. you would think they would have learned in 2008. unfortunately they have not learned. banks are joined at the hip. there's a dependent city in this global banking system if one bank suffered many banks suffer. that's what we have to contend with. >> starting with a bank really serious trouble. >> about the quality of their balance sheet and fact that the about guarantee for those -- i don't to get one key but convertible bongdz. basically guarantee that government was backing it up isn't there anymore is creating instability. >> banks at the center of the problem. you say the similarities, similar to 2008 therefore you believe stock market is headed way south, do you? >> i've believed it for a while. knee-deep in the european banks.
these european banks are in trouble and pus banks banks have attached themselves to them i think in the majority it has been a market that is 100% dependent on the fed. so when we got bad news, the markets took it as good news because fed would initiate this desperate measure that would create a scenario where stock prices have went up. thousand, investors have absolutely nothing to look forward to. from the fed except reality. now bad news is, in fact, bad news. >> nothing to look for forward o and nobody going for growth. democrats are not going for growth but nor taxes and spenting so no relief from the federal reserve or politicians but to the leadership. >> i'm running out of time. how far down are we going? >> i believe that dow is going to be in around 142. going down heavily.
here's one thing i will not discount that i have in the past. i won't this time. i will not discount the fed doing something truly december trait and truly stupid to try to stop the market from declining. >> like what -- don't tell us. [laughter] all right jeff thank you very much indeed. you've been right before but i hope you're wrong this time. hillary kramer is with us. i want to know safe havens we know treasury boppedz are safe haven. gold is. but you've got diffed end players that will pay me in times of trouble? >> utilities, the utility stockses that are still going to be in business and investors enough concern there and you can make three and a half -- 4% on those companies. >> that diff end is secure? a turn around three weeks from now rein say you can't do that? : it is secure and many of the inputs have dropped in price. so that cheaper for the utilities to operate o.
you can also look to some value area where is their companies here in the u.s. that do very well. they're sleepy companies there's a paper company. dome -- uss for example. i don't own, but it is also in the -- area. give me at&t what does it yield right now dividend? >> over 5% but too much debt. you want to look for companies with clean balance sheets that's why some of the companies in retail the kohl's, dillard's some of those companies have cleaner balance sheets some of the restaurants stocks are stills beginning to do well that's been a theme of mind. some of the diversified pharmaceutical companies as well they have fallen so much but they have an important role. >> to sum it up in other words you have a little debt. >> you don't want any debt in that environment. that's why you have to stay away
from energy. >> i want a dividend as well. clean balance sheet no debt pay me a dividend and in an aye where there's some growth possible. that's it. you've got it ?fnlgt you can make a lot of money coming out of this because the world is not falling apart. this is not financialarm armageddon. >> they tell a different story. world is really at trouble. : stuart this is where people end up making money at times like this. not sure if we're con vipsed but we do hear you. harping upon negatives today. how about this -- cheap ol, that means cheap tbas which is a dollar 70, stop is judge. stop it. >> where are you driving to fill up? >> that's had the national
average now cheapest? >>oklahoma state a gas station there with six locations for a dollar and 7 cents. state averages about 35 which is about best in the country as well. by the way seeing lowest gas prices in the midwest in 12 years and chicago even chicago we know about the guys at the cme complain all of the time but reported 12 straight days under national gas. so starting to come down but oklahoma god bless them. >> so iemg wait for 99 cents a gasoline. >> it's coming. they said there was a place in where was it -- in kansas 99 cents yesterday trying to confirm that it is today. here he comes. heard it first rights here. moving on with financial related but a political story. fox news tex collusive. that top secret intelligence only o hillary clinton's private server it passed through a dozen other e-mail accounts. in other words, top secret
information was out there. i'll get to the possible financial angle in a moment but right now he's judge napolitano to tell us how bad this rev revalatinon is potential >> it was greed an new revelations each week. i say revelations i believe that the fbi what i'm about to discuss that the gi is known about for a while that they are public revelations that i believe the deeper the fbi digs the more they find there's a need for further digging. but the latest revelations thanks to our colleagues katherine and pamela brown, and their contacts, and poem they speak with with -- between top 30 top secret from her private e-mail server.
>> that is a felony they lacked clearances to receive this. but she apparently regularly engaged in them in conversations in the e-mails about this information. u how does this harm her? this is really very bad for her. because now the feds know if they indict her aids for the failure for the rekroapt and use of top secret information when they didn't have a clearance, they trade with those aids a lesser penalty for your testimony against your former boss. >> if gives the feds leverage. absolutely on those aids against hillary clinton. >> absolutely. we know fbi has begun to interview those aids they, of course, would be qiez to have legal counsel. >> a financial angle to this. i think there is you're describing a grave situation legally for hillary clinton. which will have an impact on this election.
and at the same time we have bernie sanders that alternative democrat come on strong, leading the field and he's a socialist. and right now we've got a financial selloff across the board in the united states and impending recession so what you're saying about hillary may have indirectly a financial impact because of bernie sanders. >> it certainly having financial impact at the united states l naval observatory and mansion located on there and principle occupant. >> that is -- >> vice president biden. >> you're right. i can't believe he's sitting around doing nothing about about this. as hillary twist in the wind got to be answering the fray. >> that would be speculation judge glad you made it. wore part of it. watch this program and you'll see it unfold, and donald trump he's coming up only the show shortly.
and going to ask him what's your analysis of this selloff, and what would you do about it? back in a moment. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in. this just got interesting. why pause to take a pill? or stop to find a bathroom? cialis for daily use is approved to treat both erectile dysfunction and the urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex do not take cialis if you take nitrates for chest pain, or adempas for pulmonary hypertension,
as it may cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. do not drink alcohol in excess. side effects may include headache, upset stomach, delayed backache or muscle ache. to avoid long-term injury, get medical help right away for an erection lasting more than four hours. if you have any sudden decrease or loss in hearing or vision, or any symptoms of an allergic reaction, stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis and a $200 savings card being hacked and intellectual property being stolen. stop taking cialis and get medical help right away. that is cyber-crime and it affects each and every one of us. microsoft created the digital crimes unit to fight cyber-crime. we use the microsoft cloud to visualize information so we can track down the criminals. when it comes to the cloud, trust and security are paramount. we're building what we learn back into the cloud to make people and organizations safer.
>> just joining us you're looking at a financial selloff on various markets right now dow jones average will drop 250 points that would be at the opening bell. what had you're looking at now, 1.60% that is the key barometer if you ask that will be in my opinion that's a flight to say treasury bonds up goes the price. down goes the yield. that indicates recession, really? >> certainly. indicates anxiety and fear. a long time since i saw 16 on the ten year. now look at that flight for safety price of gold up $45 as of right now. up 3.8%. highest in fact in the year.
this is financial tour mol that's you're waking up to more on that in a moment. i'm going to get to the election political outsider, trurp social test bernie sanders on two extremes right, and lefts extremes. my next best supporting, backing and encouraging michael bloomberg. his name is doug actually a fade advisory now is that correct? with michael bloomberg. >> willingly proud of it. >> is bloomberg a redistribution guy or a growth guy? >> he's squarely in the growth camp. ic e-i think ashley saying said photographed with british conservative party. bloomberg is per low taxes. he's not somebody who belove that you use the tax system to redistribute wealth. >> have a tax rate cut for individuals? >> i can't speak to what he would do in a campaign that is
yet to be launched but i can tell you this he doesn't believe you solve social programs with higher taxes on the rich. >> anti--- >> small part of who he is, he would tell you those initiatives save lives but he's a fiscal conservative. he's for environmental protection and for inclusive politics to bring people together to put ideology aside. >> charlie saying he's leaning against running. michael bloomberg leading against running. i've learned to never take charlie on but going through a process to ascertain the livelihood of the viability of the candidate. [laughter] because he hasn't made a decision so charlie may know things i don't. if so no decision has been made to the best of any knowledge.
>> tszuj on sight that the legal position is grave and getting worse. that would encourage i take it a bloomberg run. >> certainly i believe there's a former now retired lawyer that given that the legal standard is negligence secretary clinton does as judge said have very serious legal problems. i also believe that warming new the bullet pen and naval observatory is the vice president. but i believe uncertainty on both parties encourages and make hads more like a bloomberg type candidacy so yes that is u true. >> thanks so much for joining us. toapt go anywhere please. coming up in a few minutes 9:45 eastern, i'm going to have donald trump on the show right here on "varney & company." that is coming up, plus -- financial turmoil only on the markets. coming up. look at this. the dow jones average gawk to open down 250 points. oil is already down 55 cents at the 26 dollar level. below that earlier.
i say there's a global sense of unease aired the world. worried about growth. 216 continues to be extremely volatile for your money and what had, obviously, all over it. and then we've got hillary clinton she's making the south carolina primary all about race. her supporters attacking bernie sanders, saying he doesn't deserve the black vote. that's next. some cash back cards are, shall we say, unnecessarily complex. limiting where you can earn bonus cash back... then those places change every few months... please. it's time you got the quicksilver card from capital one. quicksilver earns you unlimited 1.5% cash back on every purchase, everywhere. doesn't get much simpler than that. what's in your wallet?
you premium like clockwork. month after month. year after year. then one night, you hydroplane into a ditch. yeah... surprise... your insurance company tells you to pay up again. why pay for insurance if you have to pay even more for using it? if you have liberty mutual deductible fund™, you could pay no deductible at all. sign up to immediately lower your deductible by $100. and keep lowering it $100 annually, until it's gone. then continue to earn that $100 every year. there's no limit to how much you can earn and this savings applies to every vehicle on your policy. call to learn more. switch to liberty mutual and you could save up to $509. call liberty mutual for a free quote today at see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance.
>> the demands this country works for all of the us rather than the few. we will transform america -- >> all right you heard it. you heard it short on time so going to jump right in bernie calling for togetherness as prierls head south. hillary camp waste nod time attacking the record on race. here's what they had to say, quote, sanders has been missing in action on issues of porps to importance of african-american community and twilight of his career. e11 a.m. eastern hillary will get the u caucus endorsement. does that endorsement translate to more votes for hillary? >> maybe a few stewart but not really what it looks like.
congressional black caucus i won't discount the historical organization but they represent the old guard if you will. bit of the elite of the black community. so for many that are supporting or would be supporting bernie sanders more activist in nature that black caucus endorsement doesn't mean as much as you would think. >> give me a second. black establishment. >> they are black establishment we saw this by barack obama as well. congressional deborah lee, many of the old guards significant lack leadership positions they went for hillary clinton in the beginning after they saw president obama successful in early primary states did they come over to the barack obama camp. so i would expect maybe had mobility there. >> i'm reading between lines turnout among afn americans in 2012 and 2008 was astronomical. huge polling booth. will you get the same turnout for bernie or hillary?
>> i don't expect that, no. >> but if it was 100% -- >> i'd say probably 20% decrease but we can't discount enthusiasm there's questions about voting access so we'll see turnout. i don't know about the congressman -- >> in terms of black turnout that's a huge deal. that 20% is a huge victory in many states. >> that's an estimate stuart. it could be big. could be big. >> we're waiting your judgment. appreciate it. moments from now you'll see selloff unfolds on wall street. it's a selloff on the stock market, but a selloff in price of oil at 26 hillary clinton 82 but also a flight for safety. that means a flight to u.s. treasures that pushes interest rates down, and gold. there's a flight to safety. up we are going. up to 2 were 45 an ounce on gold.
like in the hudson valley, with world class biotech. and on long island, where great universities are creating next generation technologies. let us help grow your company's tomorrow, today at business.ny.gov they say you shouldn't spoil your kids. but your grandkids? how about front row seats to the best show in town? and that is why you invest. the best returns aren't just measured in dollars. td ameritrade®.
or old are you going to do on "varney & company" just now. what if you make from this financial turmoil we are seeing right now? the opening bell is about to rain. we're about trading on what is going to be a big down day. we are looking at a 250, maybe 300-point loss at the bell. the bell has rung. we are often running at 9:30 a.m. eastern time down 34.555 points come et cetera et cetera. jo ling kent, scott shalit e. two year affair spared to genocide still has something to do with this big selloff today? >> yeah, i think so. all it would've taken us for her to say we are not going to talk about negative rates or even rate hikes today. if she would've taken that off the table, not as far as the move in march or whatever she
think she might it, but merely giving those two things the thought. that kind of gave the market a little bit to worry about. number two is everybody said if you look at where the dow is when she went on at 150 higher and often only 20 higher and we continue after she left the stage, that was the reason for the selloff that started yesterday maybe midday. those two things that she would've taken them off the table as far as talking about them, not whether she would do or not we be in a much better place. true to adler janet yellen appears before the senate today. is there anything she could say? >> investors like janet yellen to show them a power suit. show us that you have these tools. we have been hearing about these votes are quite a while. when she showed up as a very delusional, a very disconnected testimony and what she showed us that they are added to a bigger
the power suit to investors. today, i think she has become so dependent on what the market does. i think she's going to hear a lot of what does or doesn't pay to let the market does not is that that investors look at >> is a tragedy for her to even venture into background is a disaster. >> identical to yesterday. today in front of the senate banking committee she may change based on what's going on. we shall see. stuart: down 164. i want to look at the gang stops because earlier today, there were bank stocks in europe that set off some of those big names down about four teen%, 13%. >> deutsche down 8%, since the beginning of the year. concerns about the strength of the european bank.
stuart: american banks with 2%, 3% down. ashley: a couple of things on the banks. with that said perhaps not raising rates, that hurts banks. a lot of money women today believe in rates would go up and get more money on their loans. more than $9 billion of extra money earned on loans for the banking sector as a whole. and about that. there is no rate hike. they don't give those revenues. stuart: scott shellady, comment, please. first thing i heard this morning in sweden if i get the government 100 bucks, they pay me back $99.50. that is a negative interest rate. i am told that is what happens throughout government bonds in europe. why is that bad news for banks? >> that is bad news for banks because ashley is right, they are not making anything on the reserves number one.
number two, the two year in switzerland is 100 basis point negatives. that is significant. that is what has everyone scared. what makes people more nervous as we have a fed that is still thinking in 1950s economic terms. they are worried about 4.9%. they are worried this will be some sort of 1920s germany with inflation running away. it ain't happening. they are so far as size. is so negative and the fed is so clueless that is what has the investors nervous. stuart: 20 seconds. what do you think janet yellen should do now? >> she says that we are not hiking rates anytime soon. the u.s. economy is better than everybody else and banks are fairly solid good stuart: egg stocks are a driver in the selloff. so too is oil. look at it now. area close to $25 a barrel earlier this morning. if you can say we stabilized at
26.95. that is still a very low level for the price of oil. it was $110 a barrel in 2014. 26 now. that has an impact on oil shocks, oil conglomerates. at sundown today $78 per share. how about chevron now at 82, down a bit more. transocean, how about that down today down 2% again. a marathon down nearly 4%. six but is the range for a marathon. fix bugs, way down. scott, do you think we can hit $25 of oil today i should mark the >> if we go through 26, .50, we can make a run at 25 because of the recent lull in that would be reaching the market. right now there's nothing to stop it. until we get something out of says production will be cut by
opec are some or some catastrophe middle east, there's nothing else to stop this except for the velocity: lord forgive us for months because we can't go to zero. 26.50. stuart: the dow jones average down 227 points. come back in again, just who is with us earlier on the show. we are going down to the 14,000 level, correct? >> yeah, old and that labor will have a lot of volatility around the 14200 level. keep in mind like i said in the last segment, don't underestimate the desperation of this sad. that has been so attached to let the markets have been doing that they want to initiate something truly desperate and in the end truly. the market goes down for more. the credibility is very much a date. if janet yellen decides to change course at a win because of a few hundred points or even
a few thousand pints down in the market, she has no diction. she is going with land and creating a vulnerability that is very hard to get through. stuart: let me look on the bright side and there is a bright side. the price of oil is down. how about the price of gas? that keeps on farming. who would've thought a year ago that we would be on the show them that you write about $1.70 as the national average. sure in 38 is going back to her. oklahoma has the lowest average in the country at $1.35. six or seven locations selling gas for $1.7. 711, going down. jo:@99 cents in kansas on twitter yesterday through gas buddy. a lot of excitement for that. stuart: that is coming i would've thought. sooner or later it will be more wide red than a couple stations in kansas.
i never thought when i came to america all those years ago. there were gas wars. that was a long time ago. jo: i remember when it was triple digits. stuart: keep looking for a bright spot. how about this. we have booked in fact expedia much higher. the stock is up 7% in overall big time down markets. how about this. cisco better profits in the share program. cisco is that the percent. strong sales at the shoe company. sketchers up 7%. there is more money coming in at you guys are up 17%. a big percentage loss almost across the board. some of them are going straight up in bed percentage terms. big-name tech stocks, here we go again. we are on the downside.
they spoke at 99, down about. google, a-alpha bit to get it right, 696 below 700. microsoft is now way down, but below the $50 level. about 1.5%. how about amazon, still below 500. yes it is. not much of a loss today. netflix $88 per share. how about apple? we are at 94 mbits up 9 cents. rough start to the year for technology. anybody going to argue with that? can i just will price of old, please could the price of gold last time i checked 42, $43. you say that it's say that is because they fit in right now. you are advising people to buy gold. >> away from gold for a while. they had to work for the most hated them back last couple
years. i couldn't even mention gold in public without getting your the bottom line is gold has been in its reverse correlation. i think what will happen is the more turmoil from a donor crisis you see in the banking sector, the moorish tribes of gold becomes. i believe, is as a guarantee of central bank policies and also concerned about the ability of the banking sector. when you hear talk about what's going on at deutsche bank and as i've said before, i have been immersed in this balance sheets. the institutions that hold our currency when they come into question, people go to gold. granted they are doing it now. europe $43. now we have another stock as well, the downside would be twitter. i don't know whether that is a
new low. jo: that is a new all-time low. earnings report after the bell yesterday in user growth was completely flat. that means they stay the same as the last three months. at 320 million monthly of people using twitter. what we learn here as they are also providing not a great outlook for what is going to happen this quarter in terms of making money and ad revenue. ceo jack doris e. on the call last night telling all of us, we are reverting back to higher user growth for the current quarter at the end of january. kept repeating that. he has now been in place since last summer and the stock has just tanked. stuart: the chart looks awful. how about xanga. we are putting it on death watch. $1.80.
on death watch of all, tell us all about it in the grim reaper there. don't you think. new all-time low. despite the fact they've done well with two games, words with friends. the truth of the matter is there leading for users. the monthly active users fell 30% to $68 million. 10 new games in 2016, but i'm not sure that will help. i would note number one in the s&p 500 as my other lives. the weak quarterly number make an acquisition for $7 billion for generic drugs. down about 15% in the s&p 500. stuart: number one loser down 15%. look at that. down 15% at 42. the mylan labs. ashley, which stocks are you looking at? ashley: one in particular. coal, peabody energy down 22%,
even though the supreme court said hang on a president obama's clean air program and whether they can go ahead and make the lives of the century would be the death knell for coal companies. they just put out their results. they are terrible. they call the current environment. whole production going down year-over-year by a large percentage. 40% is to be how much coal contributed down to 34% and continues to drop year-to-year. down goes peabody. stuart: what have you got for us? jo: cisco, the large tech companies have a percent right now. yesterday they reported earnings and saw demand and companies buying security products, routers. all of the gloom and doom about companies not spending on the tech side may not be necessarily true. they are forcing growth of 1% to 4% in the current quarter. that is not thought mr., but
also not bad. looking at this beating expectations, cisco have been in a state stuart: how about the automakers? ford motor co. at $11 a share, down a fraction this morning. general motors way below the $30 share mark hovering or d., 35 for some time now. fiat chrysler, where are we? under $6 a share down 3% today. tesla is up 7% higher. elon musk was out there yesterday and that stock is up 10 bucks as of right now. he says things would get better this year. ashley: yes, the last quarterly report they missed the outlook for 2016 from elon musk are impressive. 80,000 to 90,000 cars delivered up to a thousand cars a day of further production lines.
no need to raise any more funds. all of this sounds great. the model three, by the way can start making this at the end of march. this is supposed to be the mass produce affordable car tax public $35,000. the temperature ordering but wait a couple years before you get one. all of this sounds great. as people point out, elon musk has made many promises in the past. stuart: gases 99 cents a gallon. jo: you can see it move downward. stuart: what you want to say? >> i was baffled by the disclosures in the earnings report. this company is burning through billions of dollars. they burned through $3.2 billion in two years. if elon musk wants to come out and project that they are going to do at 80, 90 and these two models, that is what investors should hang their hat on.
he's also anticipating he will raise prices. last i saw, raising prices in a luxury good in an economy like this does not generate more demand. and as you said, gas prices are down. when you need to spend that type of money? there's also competition coming online. chevy bringing on competition with our new offering. stuart: the market believes him. they are up 10 bucks. transfer a lot of the investors are also people who own or have ordered tesla as well. and a negative good news than the stock going up because people are consuming and investing at the same time. stuart: but summarize. the dow jones average is down and eat about 200 points. a big drop in goldman sachs and other financial companies way down. 50 or 65 tao industrialist and we are down to 15. show the interest rates, please
because that is a key barometer here. the yield on the treasury is around 1.60%. 163. you can call is. it is still an indicator gioconda.very well. gold is up about $40 per ounce as we speak. he's got a fly to the safety of u.s. treasuries. a flight to the safety of gold and everybody's running away from stocks at this point. i've got a couple of winners looking hard. how about newmont mining, and gold mining stock. gold is at 3%. prudential financial down a new low. down 7%. kellogg, another name you know. they are improving their sales and they are up 3%. devin energy.
oldman sachs said it could be a winner if oil stabilizes at $35 a barrel for the next three years. the market doesn't think much down 8%. we are about to speak to donald trump. how much remind everybody, he's coming on the show very come very shortly. i will ask for his analysis on what is going on this morning and why it's happening. we are going to sell off worldwide. whenever donald trump to come to us from the trump tower just down the road fifth avenue new york and will be joining him very shortly. i'm sorry, i tell a lie. donald trump is in florida. is he with us now? is donald with us? i don't know exactly where in florida. ashley: he is at a breakfast buffet somewhere. stuart: donald trump is that the astronauts from florida. thank you very much. we appreciate it, sir. >> very good, my honor. stuart: what is your analysis of
why the stock market is selling off in turmoil around the world? >> because we have let china take over our economy as you've heard me say for a long time. we are very vulnerable. we are no longer controlling our own destiny. we are the big sphere of other countries all over the world that control us and they fear manipulators. they have a tremendous power over manipulation of the current season we are into that web and even though we are not manipulators because we are not smart enough to be manipulators, believe near leaders are not smart enough, we are nevertheless in the manipulation business because of the fact that some of the great moneychangers of all time are people that were wedded with them. china would be number one. japan is doing a tremendous number and japan is obviously doing a very good job they are in their current evaluations have been very serious. when they do that, it affects us.
stuart: what are we doing wrong here? china, japan, mexico, what are we doing wrong? >> mexico by the way of killing us. what we are doing here -- well, if you have about two days i can tell you everything. you know what, stuart, that could be one of the longest dancers oliver has to anything. we may need longer than your program. stuart: give me a soundbite. >> you start with the fact we are allowing other countries to take her businesses out of this country. if you look at businesses we have lost, it is fast. we have lost countries. we have lost millions and millions of jobs in the jobs we have now are not good jobs. i sigh you reported on the jobs numbers which are phony numbers because they were put out by politicians in order to look good, but they don't talk about the people who can't find jobs, which are the people unemployed.
stuart: you told o'reilly the employment rate is 25%. i've not seen that anyplace else. >> i've seen some higher than that. if you add up all of the people that have looked for jobs and cannot find them and now have given up looking, you are talking about unemployment rate as high as 25%. it's incredible. we are unemployed. we are statistically employed. when they say we have tens of billions of people and very bad jobs. we have an unemployment rate of 5% according to the phony numbers. the political unemployment rate is 5%. but they are very bad jobs and low paying jobs. now we don't have them.
i look at some of them converted to senior citizen housing. it is not a fact tour. that is producing 5000 jobs. stuart: what would you do about it? >> you have to bring the jobs back here. the united states has the highest taxed country in the world. businesses are leaving the united states, corporate inversions. the united states right now is going to lose tremendous numbers of companies. you saw where pfizer just announced. you saw where a very large respected companies are announced being. the pfizer is moving to ireland because they get lower taxes and other reasons.
and they want to get their money back. there is a lot of money outside of the united states that these companies can't bring back. it is their money and they can't bring the money back. some companies i'm even leaving. they are living to get their money if you can believe it. there are vast sums of money, they say $2.5 trillion. i think it is five. stuart: you could bring that back by lowering the corporate tax rate in the raid on individuals. >> or even lower the rate on the money coming back. friends is, now they have to pay a massive amount if you lowered it to 10%, it would come back into the country. stuart: what kind of growth rate do you think we could get? >> i believe we could get the 4% level. you know, if china has 6% or 7% growth, it is like they are in a depression. we have no growth. essentially we had no growth.
stuart: viewers after the election result. you are looking for one hands down. when you wake up on the day after, dear everything -- do you ever think about what would be like to lock into the oval office? >> i have to get the job done. i'm someone who likes to get the job done. i have a long way to go. we started off with 17. curly left and chris christie left yesterday as i understand it. that is to at last. rubio has been hurt very badly. he would have been. the last thing we need is another bush. this guy is total staff. stuart: he kind of took a shot at you the other day. he said he should get in the race because the public deserves
better. >> yeah, he did say that. he was a friend of mine get as far as i'm concerned is not a friend of mine anymore because he did say something to that effect. all he is seeing because i thought that was a nasty shock. i assume it was aimed at me. but when my friends say things like that, assuming it was meant to me, i no longer consider them friends. i knew michael very well. i would love him in the race to compete against him. stuart: do you think it would take votes away from the democrats? >> i think he would hurt the democrats, yeah. stuart: can i get your fast reaction to a couple developments here. pope francis is going to stand at the border with mexico, standing with the migrants. what do you make of that? >> i think the pope is a very political person. i think he doesn't understand a crock of their country has. i don't think he understands the danger of the open border we
have with mexico and i think mexico got him to do it because mexico wants to keep the border the way because we are losing. stuart: be said you approve of vladimir putin of russia going ahead and bombing and serious in iraq. and now you've got a new huge waiver of migrants making their way to turkey and then maybe to europe by backing the vladimir putin is doing, you have actually supported a big jump in the number of migrants living in north africa. but you say to that? >> i am not backing anything that putin is doing. he was very complimentary of me and what i want him to do is bomb isis. the one thing i want to do is bomb isis. everything else is secondary. i would like to see bomb isis more than he is bomb event. we could have somehow been knocking down isis because we do
have to knock down prices. stuart: you said kim jong un would disappear. >> well, china should make them disappear because china has total control even though they don't admit that. they are just toying with us as they always do. china has total control over north korea. china has a lot of power over him and china should take a disappear. i should be a china problem, not u.s. we are like the policeman of the world. that being said, something has to be done because you can't get back maniac missiles. stuart: janet yellen curvature of the federal reserve will be testifying on capitol hill. do you think any part of the financial turmoil worldwide or fall? >> well sometimes it is confidence. perhaps people don't have confidence in her. it is turmoil. i am very proud to say i never bought stocks, but a number of years ago i got a tremendous
amount of stock and sold in the year ago. at first i said i made a mistake. now i can tell you i'm way ahead. i'm a nonstop fire. in other words, at this into your program but not for stock advice. money was so readily available. it was almost every company should make a fortune and then i held them for a couple years and sold them and did really well with them. it is not right, but i saw this coming. i've been talking about a bubble. you sort of alluded to it. we are right now in a big, ugly bubble in our controlled largely by asia countries like china because of its vast size and we are controlled -- our destiny is largely tied into what is happening in china because we are so wired into china. they manipulate their currency and we don't and that gives them a big advantage.
stuart: donald trump, it was a pleasure. thank you for being with us on "varney & company." >> thank you for being so nice. take care of yourself. stuart: reset the market. the dow jones is now down. we are up 158 points. one stage we have this thing over 250 points. we have come back just a little with a half hours worth of business. we reset the market. the first thing is that things have gotten hit in europe and they are right here in america. stuart: berkeley is down 6% overseas, deutsche bank down 8%, even though the german government cannot instead we have absolute faith in deutsche bank. that does speak to the uncertainty and anxiety about the strength of the balance sheets of european banks and some of that is bleeding over here in our system as well. stuart: you are following the big-name tech stocks.
jo: yes, facebook, amazon, twitter, those two companies reporting earnings in two different stories. also looking at tesla as well about how the stock is raised on into the production ended outlook for the future and how much money into spending. my eyes very much on twitter right now. all-time low. stuart: oil just turned positive a few moments ago. 27.37, down 8 cents. that is why the stock market has come back just a little bit. down to 50, now down 170 in part because oil has come back a little bit. do you want to say anything? you called this selloff. >> this attachment to oil i think is important, but it's not the only relevant. stuart: it is not the mover and shaker. >> today janet yellen has the opportunity to capitulate on what she said.
she can accommodate markets by throwing the parachute they're expecting. when you get these bums, 100% of the time. i can't even say 90% of the time there's a central bank somewhere, whether it is europe, the u.s. coming out and offering some sort of false hope to a market that needs to get back to reality. stuart: it is still all your fault. "forbes" media chair and editor in chief steve forbes is with me. i just had donald trump on the phone on the show for 15 minutes. he said we in america are being manipulated by china, japan and mexico and that's why we've got the financial turmoil in america and elsewhere. >> the most immediate problem is central banks. china has been a problem for a number of years. the media problem of central banks. they are in the name of stimulating the economy, hurting economies around the world.
big binding because they are being hammered by regulators. more and more capital put down there so the loan, small and new businesses are flat or declining. you see it with janet yellen talking about negative interest rates, which is another tax on the banking system. they have all of these big reserves, but they made sure they can't use the reserves. stuart: a lot of people are saying reminds them a little bit of 2007-2008. trouble with the banks, extraordinary volatility. is it a reflection? is it somewhat similar to a week? >> you have the combination of not knowing what it's doing in the government making mistakes in taking over companies and let them go under like lehman brothers. the inconsistency led to panic. what you have here is the central bank, especially the federal reserve not allowing credit markets to work.
it is the way of price control. the price control markets are deformed and they don't work. stuart: so can you say just like in 07-away, the federal reserve doesn't know what it's doing now? that is a similarity to 07-08. >> they don't know what they're doing. stuart: to some degree you are blaming janet yellen. >> i am not blaming janet yellen. i am blaming collectively what they've been doing in recent years is depressing economies. the central bank is so incompetent, stuart, that it can even create inflation. this is the first time in history or government doesn't know how to deface the currency. anything in the past could of told them how to do it. these guys can ever get 2% inflation. stuart: we were supposed to print a ton of money and that would create inflation. we did print a ton of money. >> and what they did was created an environment where the credit
went to government and the corporations. why would apple borrow for detailing what it's got $200 billion on the balance sheet and molineux businesses get started for credit. the combination of excessive regulation on the bank's not landing the credit markets were the suppression of interest rates, the deformed interest rates we have today. six years of failure they would begin to say maybe this stuff isn't working. stuart: here we are in america looking at the possibility and the leading candidate among democrats is a socialist. >> it shows how a lack of leadership leads to strange things happening. the fact he thinks the soviet union works. i hope somebody brings in the debate given the bad news for soviet union ceased to exist because of socialism. stuart: he went there on his honeymoon. >> he went there, went to havana
where the weather is warm and they have beaches. this got out. shows how crazy he is. stuart: if he were the president of united it today, what is the first thing he would do to fix this? >> fire genocide to realize for credit mark works instead of trying to manipulate the economy. stuart: and a flat tax. >> you've got to get the money. put those two together. but taxes, stable money always work without exception would stuart: donald camp agrees with you. that is why he won new hampshire. stuart: thanks very much. to recap of the dow industrials down 180 points. that's what we've got. i'm sticking with the election for a moment. with so much economic uncertainty, hillary clinton and bernie sanders want to raise taxes and spend more. the candidate. a democrat is with us.
her name is tamara holder. what is the case here? you've got to make that case they are taxing more and spending more creates growth. to claim how that's going to happen? you are a trump supporter, aren't you? >> iem. i am a trump supporter and it ernie sander supporter. stuart: why are you a bernie sander supporter? it away free stuff and tax the rich. do you really think that's going to work? >> you have to let at the fact that no offense that no thank you waterside appeared i am not saying you are old. i am right behind you on that. but my point is -- i'm sorry to offend you. you'll get over it. but anyway, the thing is the
youth of america, the young vote of america is upset because there are no jobs. they had to. they have all of these things that are not available. stuart: i've got it. i understand youthful idealism. >> how is that idealism? they don't want free stuff. they want a job. >> i want you to explain to me how taxing the rich and spending a ton of money which you don't have been running up the dad, how does that create growth in the economy and really good well-paid jobs? explain it to me. >> i don't have a degree in economics number one. number two, i do understand that all of the wealth is shared by a very, very small number of people and it's not even you. you are a poor man compared to the people who have all of this money. stuart: the wealth is concentrated in the top 1%, why
not take it off. this is what you say, spread it around and everybody gets more. that the argument. >> i didn't say that. stuart: i know you didn't. i'm putting words in your mouth. >> i'd rather have i'd rather have been mentioned a money than the nancy pelosi's in washington. the real question should be wise in the capital being put to more productive use? the reason is an unstable credit market, unstable dollar and high tax rates crushing tax code. we have other regulation. put that together and you have stagnation in the 1930s and the 1970s. reagan showed the way come to stabilize the dollar, cut taxes and regulation. boom, the economy grows. stuart: the united states economy is clearly slowing down. we may be going into recession. explain how it is if you spend a lot more government money and
you tax the rich, explain how you would get back to growth in our economy. >> because all of the money that has been going overseas -- there is no accountability here. you just had -- stuart: american corporations are making money. you are fighting -- >> you are finding cheap labor. >> our money is parked over there with the worst business tax rates in the world. >> that is anti-american to park money overseas. we are so rich we don't want to pay our taxes. we don't like the tax. stuart: how do you bring money back? $2 trillion over there. how did you get it back here? how do you do that? >> it's expensive. i don't know. >> lower tax rates. stuart: you think bernie sanders
is going to lower tax rates? >> i don't agree with every single candidate on every single issue. i do believe bernie sanders is antiestablishment just like donald trump and he's speaking to the people in america. the majority of the people in america who are hurting. that is what i believe in. i believe in fixing the pain and bleeding and not parking money overseas when we have people home who can't pay their bills, cap is school loans, can't go to school, houses are in foreclosure and they want to work. that is what is going on. >> you know fix the pain by depressing the economy even more. people get to rise again. reagan showed us. john kennedy showed us that. >> if you're a business leader, you have a duty to find ways to hire people and not that many overs ease. >> you have a duty and a global
company. apple gets a lot of their parts overseas. you say they shouldn't do that. >> i believe it is un-american that we have all of these children and young adults who are hurting. >> what do you do about it? you remove barriers to people investing and creating jobs and by golly, we grow. we did in the 80s and 70s. why don't we do it again? stuart: we are out of time. if i'm going to make some money for the show, at some point we have to take a commercial break. >> the congressional black caucus, i did all this research for you. but they are not going anywhere, so we'll talk about it next time. stuart: okay, i think we are done. back to the markets. down 200 points on the dow jones industrial average.
15715. nato has announced they are going to send ships, warships to the aegean sea as in the mediterranean to stop the flow of migrants. they are moving forward with an aggressive keep them out policy. that is what they have now. more "varney" after this. i think it landed last tuesday. one second it's there. then, woosh, it's gone. i swear i saw it swallow seven people. seven. i just wish one of those people could have been mrs. johnson.

that is an historic low. when that kind of thing happens, you know you've got 4.63. 1.63%. this is important because that is where money is going. this safe u.s. treasury securities pushes the yield on the way down to 163. back to twitter. pretty much close to a new low. fourteen dollars a share. trip advisor which is leading the s&p 500 to the upside, looking for winners. we have got them. 15% up on trip advisor. nato is moving the north atlantic treaty organizer. they are moving ships into the aegean sea. you have got some details. ashley: i do. turkey's e.u. ministers saying 50,000 hearings now on the roof towards the turkish border.
he says this number could reach 1.5 million if the city of aleppo falls. we've been talking in the last several days it is under siege from troops as well as hezbollah and others than not will turn into as one person said, a blood bath then you will have well over tens of hundreds of thousands tried to get out of the city while heading to turkey. stuart: 50,000 or so. ashley: germany, turkey and greece called for help. this whole stream of refugees coming and, looking for human traffickers, which is a huge problem. hundreds of people on the kiddie boats, the navy -- the nato help is there to stand out. 75,000 people already arrived on greek shores in the first six weeks of this year. stuart: we are going to show you the drone video of this theory
in city. we are showing it to you again because this is the result of russian bombing which has bubbled the city and forced out tens of thousands of migrant who are now trying to get into turkey and from there to europe and maybe on to the united states. come on in. the author of the book, undercover g hottie, a former extremist who now provide expertise to the u.s. government is welcome to the program. good to have you with us again. >> thank you for having me. stuart: you provide advice on how to counter domestic terror. we just heard tens of thousands of migrants trying to get into europe. what are you telling the pentagon, the american government, what are you telling them to do about this one they are here? >> yeah, well we are looking at a number of things that i'm also doing work with u.s. special operations command on countering the isis narrative. this is part of the plan.
it has been the plan to send operatives there is refugees into europe and other areas. there have been some progress. there haven't been any major arrest, but i assume we will be seeing some of that shortly. stuart: as a former g hottie, do you know for a fact that isis is to liberally inserting terrorist into this migrant flow? and if so, how many? >> i was engaging with individuals all of 23rd 10, all of 2014 and part of 2015. i had a lot of conversations with a lot of people in the idea and the topic of migrant been sent was mentioned a long, long time ago. i thought with my own eyes the merit putting the situation. if you are looking at the russian side of things, this is also a way for russia to tease table as nato and the countries
by sending migrants into turkey and europe. number two, the flip side is course in europe you have anti-systemic rallies but you also see russian flags flown at these rallies. they are actually doing to raise. they are creating disturbances domestically so agencies are left either chasing the isis kings or far right extremists and their own operators are left without deprivation. stuart: we are glad you saw the light and we are glad to have you on the show today. we have a big stock market selloff as well. thank you for joining us. appreciate it. >> you are most welcome. thank you. there is a flight to safety. stocks are down, oil is down. 1239 is the price of gold. it is up $44. i believe that is a one-year high for the price of gold.

this is true financial instability. what is going on in the european banks, everyone is worried and upset about it. stuart: can we put a guilt on the 10 year treasury. another flight to safety. that is where a lot of foreign money pours into america's debt because it is safe. you would get paid in dollars. >> this is very frightening. i think a lot of people out there say to themselves, where can i go for help? i liked what hillary said earlier in your show. she said look, this is when people are aggressive, people who have the stomach for it make real money and find things they actually want to buy. i am wearing red today. things are going to get better at some point. i think it's a day to be looking around. stuart: hillary is hilary kramer, not the other hillary. thank you very much indeed. check out the big word because we are approaching the lows of the day.
stuart: that is true. road trip. the cheapest gas in all the land in several stations in michigan and oklahoma. we are keeping an eye on your money. will oil go to $25 a barrel today? if it does, that stock market takes another leg down. >> i do not know if it will go down to 25. inventories were down a little bit yesterday. until we figure out how to get this inventory window down, the prices will be whittled down for some time.
>> not a driver of the stock market decline. >> it is absolutely not the driver. more oil prices do not cause recessions. people worried about a lot of this going on in the out and about world. oil happens to be a good correlation. that is not what is causing our problems. stuart: the imf has come out with another statement. thanks be in down something awful today. that is cause for concern. i think you agree. >> i do not know if it is the first time in history. i happen to agree with them. we've really have to keep a close eye on economic conditions
around the world. >> take you. david dietz is with me now. here is the question that i keep getting, david. is this similar to what happened in 07 and 08. >> only three possible answers and one correct one. they will overleveraged. over capitulate. stuart: european banks are sinking. down 15% today alone. you can understand the question. can't you. >> certainly can understand the question. there are parallels. some of the same people saying by the banks. margins are expanding. it changes really quickly.
someone else is buying it. american banks. way, way down. loading $100 to a european government. they only give me back $99. that is a negative interest rate did banks cannot make money in that environment. it is a very serious situation for the world financial situation. you are telling me that you are not sure? >> giving me high quality merchandise that i can talk to you about how far can prices. stuart: you told me that you would buy boeing, exxon and walmart. you buy them today. >> absolutely. it is one of two. i do not take so. they control the skies. paying a dividend.

it. it sent the market straight down. negative interest rates are bad for stock. >> theoretically, lower rates are going down. one thing you have not talked about is when you push rates to negative, you push away the incentive for people to push for bonds and things like that. one of the fundamental things that keeps markets falling is going to be put into greater and greater danger. it has not worked in japan and it has not worked in europe. it is not necessarily a recipe that will inspire markets right now. you are paying or you are taking money off the lender. they cannot do it. you are with us on this? a big negative for stocks. are you with me on this?

there are at least 22 materials. remember that she received them at the time she sent them. far more serious problems than bernie sanders. how does this hurt her? it enables the fbi to ask the justice department to indict them for mishandling of top-secret materials. then, use that as leverage to get information from them about hillary. her worst nightmare would be an indictment where the evidence against her is coming from people that are former aides. we now know that there was a culture in the upper state department. utterly reckless. reckless in its concern. grossly negligent. it is clear they discussed them

you have black activists like the former head of the naacp. danny glover, black actor. a young hip black activist who wrote a best-selling book, they're all behind bernie sanders. "the nation" magazine yesterday came out with this huge article, polly based, attacking clintons for quote, decimating black america. this looked like coordinated attempt to undermine hillary clinton as she goes into south carolina where there is heavy black vote. remember if my theory is right, and president obama seeking to take her out via the fbi investigation, what they have had to do is weaken her at the polls first. because if she were winning all the states it would look like coup d'etat. they couldn't have that. weaken her, hemorrhage her at the polls. then you go in for the ultimate strike. stuart: you're ultimate position is still president barack obama doesn't want hillary clinton at scenes and work behind the scenes? >> that is my theory. a lot of bad blood but idealogically, bill clinton

race that democrats pander to in this way and democrats have no record to run on. neither bernie nor hillary have a record with black people. they do absolutely nothing but fight for black leaders to tell us dumb black people what to do. stuart: wait a second. that the congressional black caucus tends to be older people. is there a real split in the black community between older people and younger voters? i, that is what i sense? >> yeah. i think you have a lot of younger voters since the election of barack obama who say, look, we don't look to the so-called black leaders. we'll make up our own minds. our black minds like white people make up their own minds. you don't have white members of congress caucusing we'll get behind a one white candidate. this is the problem. stuart: okay. bernie sanders met with al sharpton yesterday. i call them kind of the odd couple. what do you make of it? >> it was, you know, like desperation, right? bernie is running one of the whitest campaigns.
he has young white millenials voters behind him and other millenials. but most of his supporters are white. he comes from a white state. he won the white state of new hampshire. i mean, i think we know why he is meeting with the race hustler and the profiteer, you know, sharpton. i don't know if it will help him. i don't think sharpton -- i wonder if money was exchanged you know? stuart: okay. >> interesting things. there are no polls recent in nevada or south carolina to show where any voters are right now, white, black hispanic. any color. until those polls come in we don't really know where people are migrating too. >> gretchen is right. i will say this, gretchen, in south carolina polls done before new hampshire showed that hillary clinton was locking down that black vote. so we'll see, right? stuart: we shall see. famous last words right there. we had a good roundtable discussion. i thank everybody. monica crowley, crystal wright, jim awad. >> pleasure.

weeks on gold and tlt, play on bond yields. >> there is no inflation. usually buy gold when you have inflation. >> also a store of safety. and you know, you know what? a couple years ago in india they found this big empty graveyard and it was packed with gold. the gold was worth maybe, 5, 600 million. if they packed it back then with the local currency it would be dust. only reason i'm saying that, very uncertain times where we're heading right now, it is amazing store of value. and, it has had a huge drubbing. it was really very, very much oversold. stuart: last time i played that was many years ago. i played bullion. i actually bought gold bars. kilo bars of gold themselves. i did not buy gold mining stocks. what should i do this time? >> gld is easiest thing for me to do which is etf. i'm like you. i have the bars. i love every now and them holding them and looking at them. stuart: feels good.
>> i have them hidden all over the place. >> the fact that you buy gold does that hurt stock market? or just doing it rebound effect of the stock market? >> doing it as an insurance policy. stuart: as a hedge. >> no, the stock market is getting hurt for other reasons. i'm going to tell you guys here is big thing going on. at this very moment janet yellen is testifying. she testified yesterday. earlier this week, let me tell you how disconnected federal reserve is. earlier this week, economic report, wholesale data came out. what this number came out, federal reserve increased first quarter estimate, 2.3 to 2.5%. you know what goldman did. lowered theirs to 1.3% from 1.5%. something is wrong with this fed. people are afraid. stuart: always remember, charles, gold bullion is fine estate planning vehicle. i will not get into that. >> that is for you and tax expert. stuart: don't forget "making money with charles payne" 6:00 p.m. eastern on the fox business network.

much happier candidate. >> i hear that a lot actually about ted cruz. how about donald trump? >> oh, donald trump. stuart: when he speaks he is pretty animated. he has his hands moving around. >> he has gotten better though. watch. the reason i say this he has gotten better this is what we're seeing now. if you looked at donald trump a few months ago, gestures were big. he was overanimated and so excited and not tamed. what i mean by that i'm the guy i want to be. now he is learning he has to be politician he needs to be. big difference. a ton. stuart: really? >> what you find is during the debates, first hour he is very toned down. he is, even say like mon tone in movements. next hour autopilot comes back and real trump. that is who he is, the big guy. stuart: how about me? we taped me during an interview earlier. >> always to look at the host of

[laughter] was that real? stuart: i was mocking her. >> you had to be making fun of someone. what i saw earlier today during conversations you closed your body language a lot. just like this, this is closed non-verbal. >> what do you want me to do? >> you know the normal position that you have, charismatic non-verbal that you normally carry. stuart: carries mat i can. i take it. end of interview.
