9:00 am
jackie: we see the dow jones indicated higher and s&p 500 turned negative in the nasdaq down by 80 points. thank you, cheryl. thank you james and brian for joining me. that does it for us. "varney & co." is up next. take it away, stu. stuart: good morning. let's get right to it. we've reached the breaking point. the border has been flooded, overwhelmed and the administration is overwhelmed with this crisis which is on its own making. in the first three months of this year, 569,000 migrants were apprehended trying to cross the border and that's just the number who were caught. look at the red line of people coming across the board. the administration is a stunning $60 million a week taking care of child migrants, $300 per child per day.
9:01 am
they are as nothing in to stop the flow. the president of el salvador refused to meet with the us envoy who is trying to get him to stop the flow. homeland security secretary mayorkas went to the board about refused to answer questions and more than two weeks into her job as the borders are-- border czar vice president harris has no plan to visit the scene. my opinion and this is harsh, i believe it's deliberate, this administration doesn't really want to stop the flow on this issue with this administration i am a cynic. democrats have given us an open border because they believe the people who flow into america our future democratic voters this is friday, april 9, we are right at the breaking point in america is being changed without our consent. "varney & co." is about to begin. ♪♪

stuart: a foggy statue of liberty. its new york. good morning. welcome to the show. i'm going to kick this thing off with money. look at this, overshadowing the market at this moment is the latest number on inflation, the producer price index. the key number is not report was this: year on year producer prices are up 4.2%, a very significant gain, suggesting inflation is right there and maybe about to take off. that's why the nasdaq is down. that's why the s&p is down. that's why the dow jones average has cut the gain from 100 to 34 points. that's the market now. the 10 year treasury yield going up, maybe that's another reason why the nasdaq is down.
9:03 am
1.68% as of now. bitcoin, you have to click that, $59000 per coin. that's the latest on that one. that's the markets. something else in the news, amazon reportedly it's ahead in the closely watched union vote in alabama. good morning, ashley. take me through the vote. ashley: indeed and by the way that counting resumes today, but so far it appears a large margin of the amazon warehouse workers in alabama have voted against unionization. according to the "wall street journal" after about half the ballots were counted by federal officials, roughly 70% of the amazon employees had voted no to unionizing both sides have been able to contest the eligibility of each and every vet ballots. now union leaders are already calling foul accusing amazon of intimidating workers and
9:04 am
unfair labor practices. of the accounting goes on, but either side can then legally challenge the results, so it could still drag on for some time. stuart: i would love to know how bernie sanders and aoc, how do they feel about this because they did amazon and they are in favor of unions and were pushing this from day one, but they aren't going to get it. i'm waiting for their response. what do you think it will be? ashley: outrage and they will probably say the same thing as the union leaders, but it's a knowing i think that sends a strong message back. stuart: i think you are right. back to you in a moment. moran amazon. it might be moving up its annual prime day, moving up, amazon usually holds prime day in july took it could make it made it to and also thinking of adding another discount day may be in the fall.
9:05 am
amazon is opening its first grocery store on the east coast. they will open stores in washington dc, pennsylvania and maryland. of the stock is down $10 this morning, perhaps that's inflation. we are looking at futures overall this friday morning in the nasdaq is down 90 points dow jones up a mere 30. kenny policari joins us. i went to move away from strict market coverage for a second. more ceos, seems to me, are being pressured into taking political positions. i don't like it. i went to invest in a company which has solid profits, a good product at a good price. i don't care about their politics. what to say you? >> i agree 100%. is a slippery slope that a lot of these public companies are going down because at some point you are going to disenfranchise 50% of your clientele if you take a position on a
9:06 am
public issue that as a public, he has no point to take a position on, so i'm with you and i gets dangerous. i think you will start to see and you have started to see some companies that have put up that there's anger on both sides so i think it's a lose lose a situation. stuart: lets move back to the markets with these number's this morning on inflation. at the producer level inflation is at eight 4.2% rate compared to this time last year. that's pretty strong. i imagine the market is worried about what the fed will do. >> of course according to the fed there's nothing to worry about, not only no inflation, but if there is we have it under control. notice he has been saying it more and more everyday, so my sense is they have the sense it will be the number today and so therefore they are trying to job long the market ahead of an overreaction and trying to get everyone to palm down. he said it again
9:07 am
yesterday, j powell, said they have every tool in the toolbox ready and they expected, so they are trying to get everyone on the same page. it's interesting because last night we saw china's number much stronger than expected and today this number is stronger than expected, so it verifies what everyone is worried about this building level of inflation that we know exists because we live in the real world. why everyone else says it doesn't exist is mind-boggling to me. i think the market will take a breather, certainly the nasdaq, i don't think that s&p will make it to 4100 plus the fed comes out the something else. stuart: this program deals with politics and money. you handle both in the three minutes. that's pretty good. we will see you soon. thank you. we have news on mcdonald's. this is interesting as they are closing hundreds of their restaurants, which are inside walmarts.
9:08 am
why are they doing that? ashley: that's a good question. around 150 stores will remain at us walmart locations, but down from about 1000, so as you ask why, since they put fewer people want to eat meals at walmart. four years walmart and other large restaurant chains like mcdonald's have helped each other with walmart providing a steady stream of diners and restaurants offering rental profit and those were the reasons for stalkers to stick around the store, but all my shopping and increased use of drive-through's have made indoor store dining unappealing plus more walmart customers are just picking up their goods in store parking lots, so walmart knowing it's happening is reportedly working to find new model sports store restaurants focusing more on meals to go, but it's a reflection of the times. stuart: yep, maybe they will go to costco for a dollar 25

foot-long hotdog and a drink. who knows. brisket serious. this is a serious a story, foxbusiness alert, prince philip has been to queen elizabeth ii has passed away, buckingham palace released a statement saying it's with deep sorrow that her majesty the queen announced the death of her beloved husband, his royal highness the prince philip duke of eddington, his royal highness pass this morning peacefully at windsor castle. he spent 65 years supporting the queen retiring from his public role in 2017. he was hospitalized recently for heart condition, but no word on the cause of death. buckingham palace is flying flags at half staff at this hour and prince philip was 99 years old. ashley, you know what everyone is talking about is whether or not prince harry will come back to england for the funeral. what do you think we three i don't think there's any doubt. i think he will come back despite the furor
9:10 am
and infighting. i don't think there will be any doubt about in my mind. harry will bode well-- will go back for the funeral, for his grandfather. i don't think meghan markel will. she's pregnant with their second child and i think it is right that harry be there and i think he will make that trip. stuart: it's a shame isn't it that the controversy surrounding harry and making is going to overshadow this events within the royal family that happened a couple of hours ago today. i think this will be a news item for some time to come. it should not, but it probably will be. checking the market again with 20 minutes before the market opens and we are down on the nasdaq, down on the s&p and fractional gain for the dow jones. gun activists and critics of president biden are furious claiming the president was outright lying regarding background checks. watch this. >> most people don't
9:11 am
know, you walk into a store you buy a gun you have a background check, but you go to a gun show and you can buy whatever you want, no background check. stuart: that is not accurate, by the way. and what about his son, hunter, who reportedly lied on a background check to get a gun? we will cover it. looks like big tech censorship is back in action. we will tell you why youtube is a silencing the governor of florida. ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪ ♪♪

stuart: isn't that relaxing? smokey robinson, cruising in your look and clearwater beach in florida, quiet, peaceful, beautiful work of the governor of florida, ron desantis is assuming the cdc as he once cruiser ships to sail again from florida. what is the governor's reasoning? ashley: he's pretty upset. florida is suing the federal government for what it calls a failure to lift restrictions on a cruiser ships as the us recovers from the pandemic. cdc first issued a note sale order march 4, last year and restrictions remain in until at least this november. of the lawsuit says more 1.5 million people travel by air in the us april 5, for example, with hotels restaurants and theme parks reopening, but it says the cruise industry has
9:17 am
been unfairly singled out and as a result is on the brink of financial ruin. the suit alleges the cdc lacks the authority to shut down the cruise industry, so they are really going after the cdc and the cruise lines have also themselves perhaps threatened moving their home court's-- ports out of the us's on the fight on. stuart: big media is going after ron desantis. this and this, youtube has removed a video of a covid roundtable discussion held by an chaired by governor desantis. in the video some of the medical experts questioned the effectiveness of restrictions like the need for children to wear masks. watch this. >> doctor gupta mentioned about not putting masks on kids, not effective, not necessary. martin, you agree that in the schools there is no need for them to wear
9:18 am
facemasks? >> children should not wear a fast-- facemask, no. >> how do you teach a child to read with a facemask on a zoom? children develop by watching other people. ashley: that's part of the video that youtube just took down. they say violated policies on debunked covid claims. come on in dr. marc siegel, set us straight. do you think youtube was right to take down the video? >> no, i don't. did anyone ever hear the term cancel culture come a listen point they were making is interesting which is there such medicine on a sociological and psychological damage done to children when their faces are covered at a young age. they don't tend to spread covid-19 much, very little the younger you go and the younger you go the less likely they are to comply with a mask. that's a debate worth having and the doctor
9:19 am
said he had on there from harvard and stanford, top physicians and they have a right to say that and in another part of the video they talk about the tremendous cost of lockdowns which we have seen across the board and have talked about on the show. florida is wide open and that numbers are not worse than other states. in fact, their deaths have gone down because of the proactive vaccination program of the elderly. we have to have an open debate and i think it's very disturbing that the video was removed to. stuart: keep the debate flowing, please. here's another story, doctor. johnson & johnson, astrazeneca reported issues with their vaccine. forget the issues they are worried about for a moment and let me make this point, when you have issues with the vaccine makers, that puts people off getting the shot, doesn't it? >> yeah, that is true. that's exactly what i'm worried about because emerging bio solutions in baltimore was making
9:20 am
that astrazeneca vaccine side-by-side with the johnson & johnson and they got mixed up and it affected to 16 million doses. johnson & johnson said they will still come up with a hundred million doses by may as promised, but the point you are making is the blackeye as we are already concerned about that astrazeneca vaccine and then we hear it's made together with the j&j and there's a mixup, that's the last thing people want to hear. i can tell you the j&j vaccine is excellent, it's very safe and effective. we have to keep pushing that because it's absolutely cherubic i have talked to members of the fda and its a great vaccine. i hope we continue with compliance. we have had none of that kind of screw up with mrna vaccine with pfizer and moderna, thank god because we have hundreds of millions of doses of circulating and they are terrific. stuart: dr. marc siegel, thank you for your input. always a pleasure

stuart: four and half minutes until the opening of the markets with nasdaq down, s&p down and dow jones up 60. big tech will probably be a big next picture this morning. they are all on the downside with a lot of red ink. the crypto currency exchange, coin base, that's going public next week, april 14, i
9:26 am
believe is the day. ray wang is with us. straighten us out on coin base. i believe it's the leading place to buy and sell crypto. is that correct? >> number one place for crypto currency exchange they will the 100 billion-dollar ipo is the guesstimate. they have 56 million customers trading anything from bitcoin, ethereum to any crypto currency out there and it's one of the most interesting ipos because it's the nasdaq of crypto currency's. stuart: if they have 56 million people buying and selling crypto's, how do they make their money, commissions from each sale i would guess? >> it is. its 96% of their revenue from transaction fees and last year they did somewhere around 1.4 billion, but last quarter they did 1.8 billion showing the growth of crypto currencies in the marketplace which is why
9:27 am
the ipo is looked at very carefully. stuart: do you think it will be one of those ipos that opens and takes off from the get-go, do you predict that? >> i think so. look at the price of the coin, which i think you showed earlier at $59000 a bitcoin and that will be part of that and we seek other crypto things popping up that are actually making this exchange so popular and they are democratizing actra-- access to crypto currencies allowing people to convert different crypto currencies. one of the challenges is if crypto currency continues as an asset, what happens if other crypto currencies come in to play and if there is more regulation, but the future looks bright for brian and fred the cofounders. stuart: you specialize in big tech and when i talk to you about the unionization of big tech. we will get the results of amazon's union vote later today and it looks
9:28 am
like the union loses big-time. would any big tech company actually welcome a union, ray? >> i don't think so because big tech companies have to innovate quickly and if you look at the conditions of amazon in general and you work for amazon you know you will work hard, but you will build something that's unique and you know you will deliver an awesome customer experience and a lot of innovation. you go to amazon to work hard, not coast, so for amazon's case in terms of trying to unionize employees, it will be difficult for companies especially big tech companies to want unions in their because they have not found good partners. there are places in other countries where labor councils have partnered for innovation, but that's mostly the exception, not the norm. stuart: real fast, i read your tweets and you are talking about las vegas being the land of opportunity.
9:29 am
i take it you are talking about housing market? >> you are right. the market there is amazing and we have a massive growth there. it's impossible getting new single-family homes. the whole area is on fire and people are leaving los angeles, leaving san francisco to buy new homes out there and the market is back. stuart: word of advice, ray, go to florida and see what is happy to the real estate market there. it's absolutely on fire. ray wang, you are all right. thank you. 45 seconds to go before we start the market. it's going to be a mixed picture, no major price movements either way by the looks of it. the market overshadowed this morning at least a half-hour ago by the news that producer price inflation came in at 4.2% rate year-over-year and that's important number. that looks like inflation is back.

everyone wants to know what's the fed going to do about it. they're going to live with this, they call it temporary, what are they going to do, that's what investors want to know and that's why the nasdaq is looking at a 50-point drop from the get-go. the bell is ringing, it's friday morning and in three seconds we are off and running. the dow jones has opened as predicted about 80 points higher. it's at 33560. about half the dow jones 30 is in the green. and mixed picture. as for the s&p, that is up-- no, it's not, it's down a fraction. keep watching, it could turn to the upside. it's dead flat. nasdaq is down one quarter of 1%. have a look at boeing. it's flagged, brought to attention a potentially electrical problem with max jets. united airline said it will swap out max chats
9:31 am
to minimize the impact on customers and american airlines says it's temporarily removed 17 of the max jets after receiving the notice and the downside move for bowing is costing the dow jones 25 points, so without bowing the dow jones would be up about a hundred. we are good to cover the frenzy stock, when a particular, naked brands , it's up 13%. what's behind the jump? ashley: eight cents to 70 cents, shares of naked brand group, the new zealand apparel and swimwear company moving higher after disclosing more than 41.1 million shares giving it a boost, but the stock has been declining since then february, got caught up with the trading frenzy surrounding so-called meme stocks in late january but today it's on the upside 9%, a whopping 6 cents.

qualifiers and as you see the stock is up 6% on that news, world cup gripes a lot of ratings. stuart: there is a lot of soccer fans in latin america. it's a very popular sport there . i would just like to know how much they paid for the rights to broadcast those games. more movers for you, carnival cruise lines, harley-davidson, both god upgrades. harley is good for a foreign half percent gain. holywell i think is up this morning. yes, they are 3%. and they got an upgrade. what is the story on honeywell? ashley: they got nice upgrade after deutsche bank upgraded the stock to a buy from a hold. that's a positive upgrade no team underperformance so far in 21 as well as honeywell favorable exposure to the current

state of the economic cycle in j.p. morgan state also citing similar reasons. you get those two folks on your side nec the stock up $6 today. stuart: it's a big-time. that's honeywell, up 3%. this is an identity software company. i think you need it to go to work or figure out how to work when you're at work. they expect annual revenues-- stop laughing at me, ashley. you know i have trouble with this. they're going to grow in the next three years. today's gain of-- it's dropped on the downside now, but it was up earlier. i should have let you get on without one, ashley. i think that was your story anyway. sorry about that.

10:08 am
surely heading towards some kind of major decline for stocks. it surely points in that direction, doesn't it? >> well, i mean, that's been my expectation. i've been wrong for quite some time. and, look, the trend, stuart, remains up. target, home depot, southwest airlines all at new 52-week highs this week. 79% of stocks are bo their 200-day -- above their 200-day moving average. as the saying goes, there is no such thing as a free lunch, and we know a lot of stimulus money went into the stock market. all that money printing has gone into risk assets, and that's the fear. as they say, when the paddy wagon comes, they could fall just as quickly as they rose. stuart: everybody warns about a major correction or call it what you like, but nobody knows exactly when it's the going to come. but everybody is convinced it will come. you in that camp, it will come?
10:09 am
>> and it always will, stuart. that's the point. it tends to come when people don't expect it. and i look at, you know, the financial landscape these days. as we said, people selling literally farts for money with nfts and bitcoin, paris hilton getting into that now or even the spat of trading and over the counter speculation, you know? none of that would have happened in 2009, 2010, 2011. people wanted nothing to do with stocks. the pendulum, as they say, swings from fear to greed, i think we're much more in the greed camp. that's usually a good time to lighten up on risk. stuart: who was it who said greed is good? that was the guy on" wall street," wasn't it? as i recall. >> well, i prefer to say rational self-interest. and i think rationally, it's in your self-interest to take a few chips off the table given the market's run. stuart: oh, hoenig, you've got a way with words. out of sight, man, out of sight.

ashley, do we know the tally so far? ashley: well, it's not looking good for the union, that's for sure. it seems a large margin of those amazon warehouse workers in bessamer, alabama, have voted not to create a union and join it. according to "the wall street journal," after about half of the ballots have been counted by federal officials, roughly 70% of the amazon employees have voted not to unionize. 3200 or thereabouts workers actually cast ballots in this election. both sides have been able to contest the eligibility of each ballotment union leaders, though, already now calling foul, accusing amazon of intimidating workers and unfair labor practices. perhaps signaling where they think this vote is going, stu. stuart: yeah. i'm waiting for a statement from aoc or bernie sanders. haven't got it yet. i'm sure it's coming. ford and general motors, i believe there's more production cuts coming there. take it, ashley, this has got to

be the chip shortage? ashley: yeah, it really is. gm, by the way, expects that shortage to cost it up to $2 billion in pretax profits this year from lost production and sales. same story for ford, nissan, volkswagen and honda, also been hit hard. if anything, chip supplies seem to be growing tighter. i think that jam-up in the suez canal didn't help, and with cars these days being, you know, essentially computers on wheels, the major automakers have been forced to shut down production to numerous plants across the country. some estimateses say the auto industry as a whole stands to lose about $60 billion in sales during the first half of this year, and it's not just vehicles that are being hit by the chip shortage. it's made it difficult for schools to buy enough laptops for students. it's delayed the release of the popular products such as iphone 12, and it's also created some mad scrambles to find the latest video consoles

10:22 am
without borders. i saw hundreds of people simply walk up to border patrol officers and after a brief processing, some of them were taken directly to transportation hubs. most will be processed by the cbp into the country in a few days. if you can claim you're under 18 or if you're in the company of a child under 7, you're in. stuart: okay. i've seen nothing so far from the administration which would stop the flow. and earlier on this program today i expressed a very strong opinion. i said that it is deliberate. they don't want to stop the flow of migrants coming into this country because i believe they see them as future democrat voters. now, that's a strong, harsh position for me to take. what say you? >> oh, i think the democrats are embarrassed by the conditions in the facilities. i think they're fearful of political fallout. but that's -- and that's why they're desperately trying to up press pictures.
10:23 am
but clearly, they support what's going on. nancy pelosi said we're on a very good path now. well, let me tell you where that path leads, right into every community in our country. and it's going to be felt as classrooms are packed with non-english-speaking students and crowded hospital emergency rooms as illegals demand care. it's going to be felt with higher crime rates as gangs proliferate and in depressed wages for working americans. for the democrats, that's a gad path in their own -- good path in their own words. stuart: what happens in the future? it doesn't look like this flow is going to be staunched at all. >> it's going to get worse until the policies rerestored that actually secured our borders. i mean, the numbers speak for themselves. the week of the election last year 100 family units illegally crossed the border in a week. by the inauguration, that figure had increased to 1100 a week. and last week that number was 15,000. trump had the border under control.
10:24 am
it was biden's open invitation that overwhelmed our facilities, and his answer's not to control the border, it's simply to increase the intake in these welcome centers. stuart: you're from california. you represent a constituency in california. california is a sanctuary state. so once anybody gets into california, illegally, whatever, you can't take them out. in fact, california will give them a check. am i right? >> aye got some bad -- i've got some bad news for you, stuart. america is now a sanctuary nation under biden's executive orders. we're no longer deporting even in states that want to cooperate, we're no longer deporting criminal aliens as they're being released. i saw governor ron desantis of florida the other day make that very statement, that they -- under trump they were at least able to turn over criminal
10:25 am
illegals who were being released from prison to i.c.e. to be immediately deported. 9 now when they call i.c.e., there's basically no response. so they're being released onto the streets not just in california, but across the country. and those are the most chilling words i heard from the border patrol in the tour that i took. and that tour by itself was the most disturbing i've ever taken. they said, look, our border is now your border. this is going to affect ever community in america, it's going to affect every working american trying to compete for a decent wage. >> okay. congressman, thank you very much for joining us with this. we do appreciate it, sir. come back and see us soon. >> thank you, stu. stuart: sad news. bj's the wholesale club announcing that its ceo, lee delaney, has died unexpectedly. the company's chief financial officer will take over as ceo on an interim basis. that just announced moments ago. all right. coming up, would you quit your

10:45 am
ashley: about one in three professionals, 34%. that's remarkably high. those professionals currently working from home because of the pandemic would look for a new job if required rather than return to the office full time. that that is remarkable. it's according to a survey by global staffing firm that shows nearly half would prefer a hybrid work schedule, dividing time between work and another location. but many actually expressed concern about working fully remote. 28% of respondents believe relationships with coworkers would suffer. 26% were concerned about decreased productivity while working at home. and 20% were worried about fewer career advancement opportunities because of a lack of visibility. so everyone has their own thoughts, but one in three said, no, i'm kind of comfortable at home. interesting, stu. stuart: just, it seems a very
10:46 am
high number, to me, and it begs the question, well, if you were ordered or asked to return to work, would you actually quit. that might be a different story. ashley: yeah, that -- i think you're right. stuart: when push comes to shove. glad to hear it, ash.

10:47 am
and it was widely expected that this would not be a state funeral, and that has, indeed, been confirmed. and we should also mention if, stu, we were talking about prince harry and whether he would attend. well, the general consensus is, yes, he will. he was very close to his grandfather. he has announced back in february that he often zoomed with his grandparents, the queen and the duke, to they could see their son archie running around. he will be there, for sure. many more questions about meghan markle. of course, this would be the first trip back for harry after splitting from the royal family. meghan markle, his wife, heavily pregnant. it depends whether the airlines would even allow her on for that long flight from california to london. stuart: and if prince harry comes back, all eyes will be on him, and that will suck the oxygen out of the whole royal family. all right, ash, thanks very much. question, is now the best time to start a new airline?

11:11 am
administration is doing whether it be at the border, controlling our free-speech, putting more gun-control measures in place which these executive orders are just the first step. this will go to the point of infringing upon our second amendment rights and as we know where the problems lie are the criminals who get access to these guns. many of them in these liberal controlled cities and they need to micro target, tried to reduce crime and not defund the police but give the police the support they need to end and combat violence. stuart: every time you have a mass shooting they are horrific and we understand that and the public demands something must be done. you are a conservative. what would you do? >> enforce the laws, very simple. you have to ensure you keep the
11:12 am
guns out of the hands of criminals. that is the most important thing we can do. and that police have the resources they need to crack down on these criminals. when you have cities in democrat controlled cities where they are defunding the police, weakening the police that in and of itself, very concerning. in los angeles where you have the district attorney where they go lenient on gang members, lenient on criminals it is very problematic and that is what we need to focus on. republicans were trying to push in congress to fix legislation, that in essence they wanted to work with democrats, get all 50 states where they get access to this database where they look up these criminal records and don't have all 50 states on that type of database something
11:13 am
