depot. what do you expect coming up today. >> i expect more of the same that's one of the big eger risk retailers are going to take. you look at target they are very forward looking. they are going to try very hard to minimize disruptions. if i saw one blip, the number of trips decline. suraverage basket size was up and revenue earnings the average ticket was up. when you have higher oil prices that does eventually hit consumers and there are other warning signs out there. that struck me as pretty much overlooked >> yesterday, walmart and home depot and yesterday lowes.
do you see that same kind of performance we saw from home depot? >> yes lows and home depot are both benefitting from a huge home renovation boom. it is not really going to stop people bought houses when you buy a house, it takes months or long tore be upgraded. this isn't a one and done or monthly change these things take quite some time it is hard to hire contractors we are looking for work and they are telling us to wait months or weeks and some deliveries could take a year. i think retailers will be strong household debt levels are low. wage gains 4%, 5%. several years of wage gains now. the consumer is strong they are spending money.

be renamed on christmas day. the new logo revealed when the lakers play the nets the center opened in 1999. crypto.com ceo will be on tech check to discuss the deal. 1999-2000, we saw the sock puppet in pets.com do a super bowl ad. being able to spend money like that doesn't mean it is going to last forever but it puts a real kind of pin there as a moment. >> i was not expecting you to pull a sock puppet from super bowl 1999. >> this is what it reminds me of is this one of those peak moments or really moving into an
era where crypto has arrived >> christmas day will be a big day. great game that day with the lakers and nets. turning now to the nation's capital. democrats hoping to pass the build back better social spending plan before christmas as the house votes to approve the spending measure here with the time line. new messaging democrats are hoping to sell ahead of the midterms the key word here, inflation >> democrats don't want you to talk about inflation that's why they have been criticized for how much the social spending package costs and they are trying to turn the tables for how much this will give back to working families listen to president biden during
a trip yesterday. >> a group saying it will bring down the costs and reduce inflation. >> those economists he refers to one is the husband of treasury secretary janet yellen because this agenda invests in long-term projects, it will ease long-term inflationary pressures. >> showing this would boost gdp and create jobs but shows inflation would be higher in 2022 and 2023 if this bill is passed by as much as half a percentage point moody's calls concerns of run away inflation overdone.
>> retail earnings reporting for heavy weights reporting after top and bottom line beats. >> negative warnings from retailers outweigh announcements. that remains to be seen. >> supply chain and freight costs may be good enough to overcome issues at least now >> what does all of this mean. thank you for being here >> we mentioned this
walmart and huge quarters continue to spend and spend. how do you see target numbers shaping up, lowe's numbers shaping up has all of the spending already been done? >> i don't think so. i think the holidays will be the blowout here talking about 22 being the question mark. i think holidays will be really strong particularly for these companies that have been able to get goods to the u.s walmart talking about renting ships and getting things here through any means possible walmart is really well positioned target is and home depot and lowes, also costco all these big retailers are set up well.
>> a lot being able to buy early that shift of services and how does this play out you'll see the big ticket and small ticket the question is how do we proceed we've been talking about this all for general really a fairly significant task fuelling money for rent or food. the holiday savings. we do too but not to the degree.
we look at these stocks. sales are going to be strong and we look at the sales are they already priced in or will they even outperform the market >> it depends. we saw two things yesterday. home depot were able to bring a lot of money to the bottom line. walmart wasn't able to transfer those higher sales it depends how the cost and freight costs are up home depot was incredible to things put this up target has been doing that and so is lowes dollar general is
having a hard time albertsons really well stocked i think it depends and also retailer to retailer. california is struggling where chicago is a lot better yesterday. >> appreciate the insight. thank you for being here don't miss two interviews coming up later today brian cornell in an exclusive interview and lowe's ceo >> coming up, more on the ev surge and what could be the new big three when it comes to u.s.
the first ever tv interview. coming on the heels of his firm topping top notch spot in private equity performance unable to discuss the figures. the recent success while noting significant macro risks on the horizon. >> we are big believers in long-term tech markets are frothy you'll have to pick and choose and that's more than doubled the rate of gdp. seeing two areas of large scale
froth perhaps the stages of the bull market. >> despite risks he sees, adding to its $25 billion and putting capital to work. to watch our full interview or subscribe to our news letter go to cnbc.com. >> why the interest in founder >> typically you see more of a bc style investing historically founders have had this whole ethos he said ethos is really
changing the idea that they do want to have more of a partner take control and change things from a private standpoint from the private market i thought that was an interesting comment as well. >> we appreciate that full interview. >> back to a few names we've been watching all week tesla, lucid, rivian all with market caps larger than the old big three. on the left, the traditional automakers you see gm, $90 billion. ford, $79 billion. tesla over a trillion. rivian at $147 billion and
rivian at $89 billion. to back it up, b covering tesla with a sell rating and 638 price target thank you for being here. >> thank you, frank. >> looking at these valuations 16 to 18 times much higher. that short term price can be justified. >> are you aware of another company called arrival how come that company hasn't seen that kind of gains when they have very similar u.s.
your doctor gives you a prescription. let's get you on some antibiotics right away. you could have it brought right to your door, with 1-to-2 day delivery from your local cvs. or same day if you need it sooner. but at a time like this, aren't you glad you can also just swing by to pick it up? and get your questions answered. because peace of mind is something you just can't get in a cardboard box. that's healthier made easier. at cvs.
ahead. >> last time you were here, your parents were settling into to a move to florida. >> hawaii. >> hawaii. i knew it was somewhere i liked. >> i think probably because we are heading into thanksgiving where you are already seeing things strip in and seeing this level of volatility. it is probably not something that is going to be staying at this level >> you you are saying voluntary is transitory? on a serious note. you are mentioning really low volatility when it comes to
come down. >> i think when you look to the retail base trading through robin hood, they do like those call options we saw rivian trade yesterday and go to the moon right away. that has had an interesting technical impact on our market typically, our market has more expensiveness on the did you know side to the upside. it has given you an example of a time that could sell expensive options. that's making a lot of things like collars as a hedging tool >> i'm not a big gambler >> i'm a poker player. >> i don't get it at all i have been to a casino.
i watch the roulet and when i see like 10 reds in a row, i think i'm going to put a chip on black. it has to change >> does it impact people's decisions to buy options and shorts >> i love that analogy the reality is when you look at red and black, there is a 50/50 chance if you saw it 10 times in a row, it does have a psychological impact people saying maybe i need to put a new chip on the corner >> interesting strategy. i'm never going to play texas hold em against you.
