1:00 pm
the world spins on its axis. >> you won because i backed you up. bank of america, it's going higher. >> tbf, buy it. >> buy unh. >> stephanie. >> i mike macy's. >> that does it for us. have a great rest of the way. more fast at 5:00. "power" begins now. >> "halftime" is over, "power lunch" and the second half of the trading day starts right now. >> is the retail investor really back? the markets are hitting new records and lots of money is pouring back into mutual funds. some of the smartest money managers in the world will chime in on that. where are stocks going from here? there's a divergence up up up says one group of analysts and strategists. down down down says another. we have the signs you need to watch. and then, of course, we are following this still developing story in the philippines, relief workers are struggling to reach victims of that deadly super typhoon that slammed into the philippines. it killed an estimated 10,000 people. a state of calamity has been
1:01 pm
declared. live in manila for that. first to my partner ty in washington at the major investors summit. ty? >> that's exactly right, sue. thank you very much. we're here at the schwab impact conference. 2,000 registered investment advisors, many of whom manage your money, 1100 exhibiters here in my beautiful if often reviled hometown of washington, d.c. we'll talk to some of those investment advisors and find out what they're doing with their money, their views of the marketplace, later on this hour. a busy hour from the schwab impact conference, one of the largest convocations of its kind every year. back to you. >> all right. ty, thank you very much. appreciate it. we'll get back to ty in a few minutes. the dow and s&p 500 trading about above the record closing high levels that we saw. we're up 1573 on the dow, the nasdaq is up 130 and the s&p up .72. the three majors averages up more than 20% this year. how much further can stocks go?
1:02 pm
up, up, says seema moody, down down down says dominic chu. ladies first. seema, you're looking at the fund mnls for us. >> that's right. you know some of the experts that track the fundamentals say it's all about the data. the upbeat jobs report, stronger than expected ims services number, signal to investors the economy is turning around. analyst says the encouraging economic data seems to be one of the reasons behind the resurgence in the ek question itty market as well as the ipo market. according to ipo market an lytics, 81 ipos since the beginning of august and the forecast does look strong, 16 ipos expected between now and november 21st. another reason the bulls say the market will push higher, upbeat earnings. the companies that have reported, 70% have beat consensus and according to thompson reuters, the highest since the fourth quarter of 2012. the last reason, europe, getting its mojo back. john at oppenheimer says this has not only helped boost and
1:03 pm
broaden investor confidence but also considered a boon for multinational companies that do business in europe. some of those companies include mcdonald's, alex yan pharmaceuticals and auto disk, all three have exposure to europe. sue? into thank you very much. all right. dom, you get to throw a little water on the party and you disagree. >> now, i may or may not disagree but i will say for any trade to work you need a buyer and seller. >> you do. >> say seema is the buyer. i'm going to be the seller hypothetically speaking and some of the reasons why. if you look at the charts i'm taking the technical side of things. it's important to look at something like the s&p 500 because you can see here at the end of our chart the s&p 500 is currently about 3.5% above its 50 day moving average, the shorer term trend line, the batting average for the market. it doesn't happen often but when it does it signals a short-term pull back. that's why some traders are waiting to buy on the dip, if there is one. another one to look at is a warning sign in the marketplace and this has to do with investor sentiment because the investors
1:04 pm
intelligence bullish sentiment survey has hit 55%. it doesn't happen very often. the last time it happened, the s&p 500 dropped 5%. that was back in may of 2013. and finally, if you're looking for some leadership, look towards the small cap stocks, the russell 2,000 because that line, again, this is the one we're talking about, the blue one, typically moves alongside the s&p. here, look at that, the green line is the s&p. it's way above the blue line. that means maybe the s&p 500 has to fall to catch up with where the russell 2,000 or small caps are. that's the reason why it's important to take a look at some of these warning signs. >> absolutely. >> maybe buyers but signs for caution as well there. >> thank you so much. appreciate it. we're going to turn now for more signs that the retail investors is back in at this record high territory. we're seeing more money go into stock mutual funds this year. is a tidal wave of money coming? joining us at the nyse, bob
1:05 pm
pisani and jeff kilburg at the cme in chicago. i'm going to start with you if i could. one of the signs that i always watch for, is margin debt. and margin debt is hitting record highs in many cases and that to me is a warning sign, but what are you seeing from your perspective? >> well, sue, that is a great warning sign. we are seeing in chicago massive influence. the retail investor is coming back, but i think they're coming back in a different manner, more intellige intelligent, smarter way, and seeing big in flows in a tactical etf. it's essentially a nonmarket cap weighted strategy allows clients invested to profit from downturns as well as upturns. these inflows nearly $50 billion this year, to 20% bump in the space which only makes up about 14% of all the etfs. we're seeing people come in due to the fact that they get inundated, sue, every day a new market all-time high. you want to be tactical, smarter but you are seeing a little bit of paranoia underneath the surface. >> bob pisani, you penned a note on this topic earlier this
1:06 pm
morning. give me your perspective. >> the good news is money is definitely going into stock mutual funds in a way that hasn't gone for many, many years. you can put up the screen, i'll show you that there are some very clear trends this year. we've seen outflows generally for five years in the stock mutual funds. this year there's inflows. that's good news. corporate bond funds are still seeing inflows. high yield where everybody put a lot of money is flat to slight outflows where we're seeing some outflows is in treasury bond funds and muni bond funds. i would like to see more of that, more money coming out of bonds and into stocks. i think the trend is good. and i agree with what was said earlier, sue, the sentiment indicators, put call ratios, your investor surveys, the vix, those are flashing a little bit of caution right now. that's the only concern i have. a lot of investors tend to put money in as the market has risen rather dramatically. >> absolutely. that brings me to you, a quick question, how would you recommend or what vehicle, perhaps, better said, would you
1:07 pm
recommend if people are getting into the market right now at these record highs for them to protect their portfolio on the downside? give me one easy to understand strategy they can utilize? >> bob hit the nail on the head. the vix, the complacency is indicative, under 13. to break it down when the vix is at 16 the implied volatility means there's a 1% daily move in the market. let's rewind to last thursday and friday, a 2% pop and drop on friday. the vix should be at about 32. that is a warning sign. i like to buy out of the money puts or utilize proprietary vix strategy to protect the portfolio. get into the vix, it's cheap here at 13. >> all right. that's a great strategy. i want to switch gears a little bit. bob pisani there's a lot of talk that traders will no longer be able to utilize chat rooms to get information. what's been the reaction of the guys on the floor? >> that's not good. bloomberg, for example, has essentially what is an instant
1:08 pm
messenger type of thing where traders communicate. this isn't just bank traders. this is done across the entire trading industry. and it's a quick way for traders to stay in tuch with each other, get opinions on what they think. this would be very bad if bank traders couldn't interact with each other. being on the phone takes too long, sue. this is the efficient way to do it. as long as it's logged, messages are logged legally for three years, i don't see what the problem is. >> weigh in on this, if you would, jeff, do you use the chat rooms at all? >> we do. it's a critical tool in our communication as well as other portfolio managers. it's unfortunate sue to put it into chicago terms, a few scumbags in the business are taking away a great tool. it's not going to eliminate people. cheaters will always be cheaters, find another platform, another media to front run orders. this is a critical tool we need as portfolio managers, talking to our clients and it being taken away causes a problem. bob hit the head on the nail. it's cumbersome to call someone. you need that five to ten second
1:09 pm
text and you have your information disseminated. >> thanks so much. appreciate it very much. >> let's go to dominic chu. he's flashed over to the market flash desk and he's got a market flash for us. >> apple coming off its lows of the session so far after cnbc scott wapner was told by carl icahn he had another good conversation with apple's ceo tim cook about the company's stock buyback situation. he said they both believe the company was under valued. so again, apple shares reacting perhaps to that report, sue. back over to you. >> looks like they are. thanks, dom. see you in a minute. back to tyler at the investors summit in washington. what do you got ahead for us. >> thank you very much. here with 2,000 registered investment advisors, among the many attending the 22nd annual "squawk box" impact c -- schwab impact conference. you don't know them, but they know your money. what they're doing with it after this short break. we'll be right back. ♪

a> to to a still developing story and the trail of destruction left by the deadly typhoon in the philippines. typhoon haiyan may have killed as many as 10,000 people. authorities say at least 2 million people in some 41 provinces were affected by haiyan. ian williams is live in manila, a massive storm, ian. >> it certainly was, and the
1:13 pm
relief effort is now getting under way, but slowly. the logistical challenges are enormous. the head of the philippine red cross described the situation down there as a -- as absolute bedlam. they are beginning to get aid in, the u.s. and philippine military are bringing supplies into the airport in tack low ban. the ngos, aid agencies talking about bringing stuff in by boat. the u.s. military, the marines, are concentrating on things d desperately needed such as water, shelter, water purification tablets and stuff they can help children who have been particularly affected by this. but one of the problems is that many areas have still not been reached. the rescue efforts have still to get to some of the outlying areas, some areas particularly hard hit where power is still down, communications are out, and the roads are blocked.
1:14 pm
so yes, the aid effort is getting under way, but it is slow and there's an enormous amount that needs to be done there. >> ian, thank you very much. ian williams with nbc news in manila for us. let's check out shares of tesla. the stock rebounding as concerns over recent car fires has died down. over the weekend the owner of the latest model s to erupt in flames said he would buy another one in a heart beet. given the severity of the accident he thinks the car save the his life. tesla up almost 5% on t trading session. back to dominic chu. >> how about go go shares doing just that, going up and up. the in-flight wireless communications and networking company reporting a smaller than expected loss on better revenues. the results showed 24% more airplanes are using the company's services and the average sale per user was up 21%. it raised its full year profits and sales guidance.
1:15 pm
a little behind that pop in trading today. back off to tyler mathisen at schwab impact. >> thank you very much. how do you throw a party for 2,000 investment advisors? 1100 exhibiters? this guys know, bernie clark, executive vice president at schwab and head of schwab adviser services. you've done this a long time. how is this event different from let's say five years ago? what's the difference? >> i have done it a long while. although there's commonalties we've seen such a growth momentum and advisors are keeping their clients, winning in the marketplace, got them on a long-term track and they're celebrating. it's a good time. >> you did a survey in which 70% of the advisors said that they thought their businesses were poised for growth. what do they see as the future of their business? the population is aging, that's one part of the clientele, but there is a new population behind them. >> absolutely. they've enjoyed double digit growth over the past five years, hard markets to be part of.
1:16 pm
and so when they sit back and they look and see the next generation, they're preparing themselves. they're starting to engage more aggressively in the social media. technology, trying to bring more to bear. >> one of the things that stood out in the survey to me was the finding that more than half thought that their clients were not demanding, that's probably too strong a word, but were inclined towards low cost etfs and index funds. what does that tell you about what we would think of as traditional stock trading, the purchasing of individual securities by individual investors? >> no question the world has become a slightly more passive and cost is a big part of that component. 42% acknowledge that they don't know the investment vehicles their clients might want in the future and may not have been invented yet. >> probably not. the older clientele, i am a part, they want reliable income. >> yes. >> how is that being provided to these customers today? >> it's critical. i join you in the older set as
1:17 pm
well, and we have to make sure that begins to satisfy the need for guaranteed income investment and something that's going to be out there for them in the future. something they can add no their portfolio with the bonds and stocks. >> congratulations on the event. always good to see you. >> thank you very much. nothing you said but i'm going to leave you now. >> thank you. >> i'm going to talk to three individuals managing individuals' money. andrewberg of homrickburg in atlanta and elaine beetle of beetle financial and david. i'll be your server. a little parfait to make the interview go down a little bit better. there you go. >> thank you, tyler. >> a little feedback but that's all right. we got spoons for you. elaine, ladies first. you know, the question i want to know is what are your clients asking you and what are you telling them? are they nervous? content? conplacement? >> i think they're a little in the middle. the way we do our work with our
1:18 pm
clients as advisors we're setting an asset allocation that makes sense for them and makes their money do what it needs to do for them. that may mean they're in the stock market for that growth side of it if they have time to leave their money there and grow but if we've got requirements on the portfolio to distribute money to them on a regular basis, our rule of thumb is that five years worth of fixed income has -- or five years worth of distributions has to be on the fixed income side. educate our clients well, they understand that and so even though they don't like when the market gets really volatile, of course they love it now that it's been going up for a while -- >> volatile up is okay. >> volatile down is not so good. but, of course, they're not real happy with what we're getting on fixed income. we've managed that fairly well. >> if i had to guess, david, they're not real happy about what has been happening in washington, d.c. >> not at all. the volatility is so paramount in their minds it creates a fear and almost a disgust at the lack
1:19 pm
of cooperation that they're receiving from d.c. >> what would you like to see? what would they like to see out of washington? some sense of get a deal, make things stick? no matter whose deal it is or what? >> they would like to see a sense of responsibility back toward the investor, toward the voter, instead of personal, political careers. especially at the leadership level within congress and within the administration. >> so how does that affect what you do with their money, andy? how does washington affect what you do? >> well, you know, what's going on in the economy and the government, of course, is separate from what's happening in the stock market. and they don't coincide, unfortunately. so the logic -- >> the stock market is not the economy. >> the stock market is not the economy. we have, you know, the economy hasn't grown fast, still a jobs problem and we have the political mess. with the accommodative policy that fed has we think that stock market could keep going from where it is, although it's pretty lofty. >> are you worried that people have been sucked in and that
1:20 pm
they may get whacked yet again? >> yeah. a bit. >> how do you protect them? >> well, like the other advisors, we allocate assets and protect our assets as best we can but we're not market timers. we're in the stock market, but we're also trying to protect their money and our clients seem content. >> it's been a five-year bull market basically, four years from 2009 to now. >> right. >> what's next? >> well, i mean i think we need to be cautious and with our clients we don't want to put them in the market if we can't leave the money there five years. heing for them. there's going to be pullback. the way the market works it's so much influenced by psychology. if we get a little bad news we see a little bit of a retraction. as we did when the fed decided there's concern the fed might stop their easing. >> you heard bernie talk about the prefb lens of index funds and etfs and portfolios. what kind of products are you putting in your clients'
1:21 pm
portfolios? >> what personally is saying is the relationship is becoming much more important than product. products can be used to generate results, but those results are only important if they're achieved against the clients' goals. what advisors within the ria industry, registered investment adviser industry match those up. >> what products are they leaning towards? low cost index? >> certainly that is a trend where you can get the performance without the cost, yes. >> you also finding that? >> we've, for example, on the u.s. equity side we've got passive. we're big believers in etfs, big believers that paying managers will not produce excess return. >> are investors, your clients smarter today than five years ago? >> i think they are. i mean i think they pay more attention with the 24/7 news that they get feeding to them, so i think they're a little smarter but they're a little concerned because they don't dig deep and understand. a lot of times they're at the
1:22 pm
surface, kind of listening to what's going on and getting concerned over that many times. but -- >> quick one, two, three. are retail investors back? >> yes. with the help of the registered investment adviser. >> they are which gives us concern. >> i think so too. but, you know, i think our clients are cautious and i think that's healthy. >> i guess so. if you're cautious that's a good thing. andy, thanks very much. elaine, appreciate it. david. enjoy your desers there. >> thank you. >> sue, back to you. >> thanks, all. appreciate it very much. hedge funds that don't hedge. we'll tell you what's going on and what it's signaling about whether stocks can keep going higher. plus, amazon all the time. the on-line retail giant making sunday delivery a reality. what it means for amazon, the post office which will be delivering those goods, and for amazon's rivals like walmart. we're back in two.

1:26 pm
back to dominic chu, she tried to say, for a market flash. >> thanks, sue. how about shares of best buy at session highs after ubs upgraded the stock to a buy rating from a neutral on expectations increased cost savings will lead to higher earnings. it raised its price target to $49 from $35 a share and jeffreys hiked its target to $52 from $40. back to you. >> speaking of valuations and whether or not the market's too topee, morgan stanley's scott devist becomes one of the first buy side analysts on wall street to say internet stocks are too expensive and cut the sector to in line citing sky high evaluations. removed google's from the firm's best idea list saying their catalyst has played out. he remains overweight on the stock. one bellwether he likes is amazon a stock he thinks has attractive growth adjusted valuations. speaking of which, time for the "power lunch" countdown.
1:27 pm
john fortt at the stock exchange to talk about amazon. good to see you as always. >> hey, sue. >> amazon's teaming up with the u.s. postal service to start delivering packages on sundays, set to begin in los angeles and new york a little later this week. so what does this mean for amazon? >> might seem like an odd pairing, innovation and the postal service, but it could help both here. it's interesting, three things that jeff bezos the ceo likes to talk about are price selection and speed and the shipping issue sunday delivery really speak to speed. amazon had about almost $3 billion in losses from shipping costs so it's clearly something they want to invest in. speed particularly important in some of the home good areas where amazon's trying to move in. if you're not sure whether you're going to order that cereal or something like that from amazon, if you know you can get it in a couple days, maybe on sunday, you're probably more likely to order it. >> just in time for the holiday shopping season too. you know a lot of people are saying this is an absolute lifeline for the u.s. postal service.
1:28 pm
what do you think? >> i took a look at some of the numbers here, sue, and last year, looks like the postal service lost nearly $16 billion. i took a look at their annual report to congress for 2012, looks like shipping and packages brought in $11.6 billion in 2012. now, the postal service is projecting just a $6 billion loss for today. i doubt just adding that one day of sunday delivery would make a huge difference, it won't hurt, but this isn't going to completely change the business outlook for the postal service. >> it does, though, kind of give them a cooler image in a way, because amazon's very cutting edge and i think it certainly couldn't hurt the postal service, right? >> particularly among the kind of higher demographic amazon prime audience, ordering that on friday, trying to figure out when it might arrive based on that gap day. you're going to be happy to see the postal worker on sunday if you need that thing for the coming week. just remember to keep the dog inside. >> keep the dog inside and that
1:29 pm
goes for fedex and for ups as well. don't let the uppy out. what does it mean for the rivals? >> rivals out there, i mean i think it doesn't mean that much except that amazon is likely to retain its loyal customer base. i think the key was sunday delivery is, it's only important if you've got a promise like that amazon prime two-day promise where you know the thing is going to arrive on sunday. if you're not home on sunday and the package arrives i don't know if you're that happy ability it. >> john, thank you so much. appreciate it. interesting story to say the least. >> yeah. >> john it ffortt. prices closing right about now. jackie deangelis is tracking the action at the nymex. hi. >> good afternoon, sue. we are watching gold futures, trading lower today. but staying above the key level of 1278. that's a key technical level. traders are a little tentative today, take something profits here. but the major leg down that we saw, below 1300, that came last week after the ecb lowered rates and we had that better than expected jobs number. meantime in the pits today
1:30 pm
talking about janet yellen's confirmation is a the game changing event this week because we will hear from her about some of her views on monetary policy and get a little better sense of who she is. meantime we're watching the rest of the complex as well and even though we had a bullish number out of chain that, that industrial production number for october we're still seeing silver and copper prices rather flat. we are watching palladium and platinum, the biggest losers on the day. back to you, sue. >> thank you, jackie. we've all heard about flipping homes but what about flipping corporate jets? what some millionaires and billionaires are doing to cash in. you got to hear this to believe it. managing america's money, the top three issues that keep your personal adviser up at night and how you can protect yourself. weekdays are for rising to the challenge.

yahoo! rising on news that alibaba which it holds a 24% stake did $5.7 billion payment volumes on china's singles kay. and tata morts lower after they downgraepdsed the indian car maker to hold from buy and cited valuation for that. as we close out 2013 many are reevaluating their portfolio according to findings of financial planners. the three biggers fears of clients. 70% say they're worried about rising health care costs, long-term care insurance and how it will affect their retirement nest egg. 50% concerned about the impact of rising interest rates on their portfolio and 45% are worried about the tax laws, especially capital gains and the medicare surcharge for high income earners. we're starting a new segment today on personal finance here on "power lunch" and joining us are members of the cnbc digital financial adviser network, a 20
1:35 pm
member group of financial executives with cumulative assets under management of about $23 billion. brittney is founder and ceo of financially wise women. tim joins me here in studio, vice president of the financial consulate. welcome to both of you. nice to have you with us. >> thank you very much. >> tim -- >> thank you. >> let me start with you, tim. we listed some of the top three concerns. but those aren't obviously the only concerns. what are you hearing from your clients about what they're most worried about? >> these and plenty more, what these have in common, sue, they're all big uncertainty items. a lot of uncertainty fatigue back to 2000, like we would never know which cataclysmic thing could happen the next day. that's what i'm hearing from clients right now. all three of those mentioned unrest in the middle east, europe, still having some difficulties in recession and deepening into depression in certain areas, many factors what they all have in common is uncertainty. >> brittney, are you hearing that same thing from your clients and what advice are you
1:36 pm
giving to your clients as we go into year's end? >> yes. there's definitely uncertainty but, you know, my advice for clients is always to plan and prepare for the future and really take action on things that they can control. so a lot of the advice that i'm giving my clients at this time of the year is to max out their retirement plans, really make sure that they're rebalancing their portfolio and getting back into that original alignment based on their risk tolerance and the goal and consider harvesting any capital losses they might have in their portfolio. >> increasing your allocation. on the homefront checking and savings when things are unsirte certain you don't know what's going to happen next, might have difficulty in employment have cash on hand but also in your portfolio. if you get scared cash is the one thing you can be guaranteed even in 2008 not to lose money
1:37 pm
on. >> how many of your clients are interested in strategies for protecting their portfolio, for hedging their portfolio? obviously you want to stick with your financial plan, and it's important to have that, but as we get to these new record highs on almost a daily basis, do you sense a nervousness or a skittishness in your clients as it pertains to the stock market? >> yes, and no. i mean, there's definitely always concern with investing and that's where financial planning comes in and that's what i preach in the work that i do and really help my clients put a plan in place to help with a lot of that uncertainty in the fear around investing because when you have a proper asset allocation and financial plan that says here's how much you need to invest for your retirement goal, then you can follow more of the buy and hold strategy, make sure you get, you know, the right insurance policies in place, make sure like tim said you have cash as well to act as a cushion so you can stay the course, but really, financial planning helps i think ease a lot of those concerns
1:38 pm
every day americans have and everyday investors have with the stock market. >> tim, do you advocate reexamination of the portfolio at a stage like this where we're at record highs and do you advise reallocation or hedging strategies al. >> absolutely. maybe macro changes. looking looking at the bond potential bubble, with bonds having enjoyed a bull run this is time, for example, to possibly take specific actions there, reducing your durations and possibly looking at some other alternatives for yield. at the same time, i think brittney's absolutely right. you've got to have a plan, but we should be re-examining our clients as well. something changed in them, are they getting closer to retirement, has the risk tolerance changed. >> changed jobs? career changes? >> we can make changes as a result of their lives in their portfolios to help make it yeeser. >> are they generally optimistic about the market? >> not particularly. >> they are not? >> which is record highs.
1:39 pm
