♪ good friday morning. welcome to another hour of "squawk on the street. live at post nine of the new york stock exchange. cpi, year on year, is the highest since june of 1982 but does look like consensus got us ready for it meanwhile, consumer sentiment. rick >> yes these are december preliminary numbers. 70.0 70.4 70.4 is the preliminary sentiment number that follows last month 's final read so, it's definitely much better
10:01 am
and if we look through expectations, what we see is current conditions, 74.6, much better than we're looking for. we look at what lies ahead 67.8 a nice jump, verses our last month read at 67.5 many pay more attention at the inflation aspects. the one-year outlook for university of survey respondents, 4.9 this is a 13-year high second month in a row this is preliminary, i remind you and on the five to-ten-year inflation outlook, this remains 3% to find a higher rating, you have to go back ten years. so, once again, just like cpi, the year over year on cpi and these one and five to ten-year remain very sticky regard to inflation. morgan, back to you. >> rick, thank you
10:02 am
we are 30 minutes into the trading session. we're going to start with shares of lululemon the company warning new covid variants could impact demand shares down 2% plus chewy shares getting crushed. after reporting a wider than ecpecked quarterly loss, that stock is down 7.5% and 42% year to date. pel peloton down graded and noting a number of head winds include of out of home fitness. plug your years for my spoiler alert. the new revival show and just like that, which kills off mr. big with a heart attack on his peloton elicited a response from the company can't be helping shares either >> that was actually on in my
10:03 am
house last night, morgan and i couldn't watch i couldn't watch mr. big come on. how could they do that to him? yeah all right. inflation rising to 6.8% that is the highest since 1982 putting pressure on the economic recovery and of the course, all eyes continue to be on the fed my eyes, your eyes what do you think? >> where else would you look i mean the november report underscores three important and worrisome parts of the inflation story. it's widespread. the 6.8% headline given to you by the one and only david faber. mark the highest rate of cpi since 82 and the core rate is continuing to rise. that's 4.9%, the highest since 1991 the key is that it's not just energy or food, both of which are up strongly this year. apparel's up 5%.
10:04 am
used car prices up 31% the rising cost of housing belatedly now working into the cpi as are higher wages. up 3.5%. and there could be more to come. yet, markets appear to be braced for this report and maybe even worse. yields fell on the news that stocks rallied at least for now. there was little change in the outlook for the fed, which has positioned itself to being more concerned about inflation and ready now to acted to counterit. markets continue to expect the first rate hike in may a second in september and you can see the third priced in for december but that positions the fed for the current level and inflation outlook. if more housing or wage-price gains work in the index and inflation does not cool by the summer, that outlook could turn more hawkish yet again morgan >> and we're going to be watching all of that
10:05 am
steve, thank you for bringing us the latest joining us is wells fargo investment institute, strategist and advisory services, to continue to dig into this conversation gentleman, good morning to you both i mean, we did have this hot inflation read, right? fastest pace in almost four years and yet, equities are higher, treasury yields are ticking lower. was this already priced inat the market how do you see this adding to or shifting, if it does at all, your investment thesis as we go into another year? >> it was somewhat unexpected and that's why you're seeing the long end of the bond curve start to do well in terms of yields falling and -- prices falling. this is the market giving the fed a green light to start to begin to raise interest rates. and your ror on the right path with respecting to tapering faster and thinking about rate

increases because that long end of the curve is what's most sensitive to inflation expectations the fact it's doing well tells us the market was ready. >> keith, do you see the same way? the market giving the fed a green light here >> good morning. i think the way i look at this is markets are all about expectations and this came in relative to expectations and there was whisper numbers that could be worse. as far as the more direct question on the fed, this definitely allows them to move forward with even a more accelerated taper. i will say right now the markets found the price in three rate hikes. we think that's too aggressive, especially with the 10-year below 150. if they want to preserve yield curves, i think they're going to go at a more cautious space. and inflation will stay somewhat elevated, it will stay decelerated as we go over year
10:07 am
over year comps. >> how should investors be positioned next year >> our view, we've been bullish over the last two years and we're still positive but also realistic that after the big bull market, after we've seen the rebound in valuations and earnings, that we're going to grow at a more modest pace next year, we still are favorable on equities. from a sector strategy, where you have more of a bar bell strategy, because we think we're going to have a back and forth between is the fed going too fast, too slow, new variants come in? we like areas of technology doing well today and we like cyclicals area like financials and see it as more favorable relative the international we're more negtive on emerging markets as we head to next year. >> what do you see the biggest
10:08 am
risks of the market as we head to 2022 and what does that mean for the way you're counseling investors to be positioned to? >> i mean, look, the biggest risk probably does remain the fed and possibility that they may end up making a policy mistake. we think the probabilities are very low the forecasts and look at other people's forecast for next year. i think that's the biggest distinction. there's a lot of people baking a fed policy mistake and we're not in that camp we remain pretty constructive because we think the fed will get this right and so, we like stocks we think there's another solid year next year a target on the s&p. a 50% total return from current levels we like u.s. equities. large, mid we also like tech, communications services. a good mix of cyclicals and growth the way we've been telling
10:09 am
investors the position is the tag line is stock bonds and anything defensive >> we'll leave the conversation there. thank you for kicking off the hour with us >> thank you staying with the markets and this morning's inflation data. here with the first response from the biden administration here is the chair of economic counsels good to have you with us this morning. >> good morning. >> i saw yesterday, brian december wouldn't predict what would happen to prices next year but there's a view somewhat that headline might be peeking here i'll give you a chance to let us know whether you agree >> to consider the economy as a whole, we know the unemployment rate has roared down, i guess i would say too, 4.2%. that this has been one of the fastest labor mark recoveries, following a down turn. so, we are optimistic that the recovery continues to heal going to 2022.
10:10 am
and so, with that, i think inflation will come down over the coming months. obviously that will depend on a number of things but we're working hard to reach supply chain challenges and working hard to reach any bottle necks we may see and we believe as we get at the other side of the pandemic, obviously, that's the control of the virus but as we work hard to get vaccinations into arms as we vaccinate the rest of the world, that economies around the world will heal and we'll see inflation pressures ease >> so, when you think about the pandemic and any relief we might get next year, let's all hope so, do you see it as hawkish because it will store more demand or dovish because supply might continue to be challenged in that case >> there are two sides to the market and i think that's a very good point i see it more as that the market comes back into equilibrium.
10:11 am
right now we have demand outstripping supply. we know that actually when it comes to global supply, that the through port at our ports is higher than prepandemic and consumers are buying goods what i believe will be coming is more demand and supply will equal brat obviously, we hope that happens in tandem so we don't have further hiccups along the way. >> just to dig into that a little bit i think across the board, economists, wall street strategists expect these to the can come down as we see the worst of bottle necks and supply chain. what would be an acceptable level of inflation >> the fed has set a target of, often average, 2%. but i think it's important that, from this administration's
10:12 am
perspective, the president's really focussed on increasing economic capacity at large that's the foundation of the infrastructure jobs law that was passed that's the foundation of the build back better plan with the senate and we hope will pass congress soon and that tries to increase economic capacity by getting people back to work, which helps on the labor supply front. the point is to build capacity sothe economy -- that's the wa to ease inflation going forward. it's so important going forward. >> you know, supply chain issues we could imagine will help amealierate cost increases and what about food and shelter? obviously, twoing things that ae very key to living what are your expectations given what have been significant move said up for both >> that's a fair point and with food, the administration has been focussed on concentration in the food industry
10:13 am
some of that comes from environmental challenges around the world and some of it is about energy prices and as they're starting to amealierate, we expect to see some of that show up in food prices as well housing is a challenge we've had a long term challenge on the supply side of housing, ever since the financial down turn of 2008, 2009 and again as part of the build back better plan, there are -- there's an effort to put more investments into our housing sector because it's a challenge. it was exacerbated and it needs to be addressed. >> when you look at inflation expectations for say five or ten years, they've crept up but their -- they're not as bad as they were, saying in the 2014 or 2013 i wonder if that's because people have confidence in the fed or do they look at long-term demographics in this country or are they convinced productivity
10:14 am
and cap ex is going to keep a drievl >> i think one is that the immediate past experience -- when i say immediate -- i'm showing my age here. going back ten/twenty years we haven't seen inflation pop the way it did in the early 70s and '80s i know that's the concern of many even after many are expecting >>flation after the great recession, we didn't see that materialize. we have confid tence the fed has the tools to address theflation. the fed was strug gling with too low inflation, which meant it didn't have room to do traditional monetary policy. we have the confidence the fed can achieve its monetary goals and we just believe that w the investments we're making on the
10:15 am
physical infrastructure and human infrastructure and human capitol that we'll have economic capacity, our economy can better absorb and ease inflationary pressure with increased -- that's through increased productivity not by stoking demand. that's why they agree it does not add to inflationary pressure. for it's investment over the long term and building capacity >> treasury secretary yellen, earlier this month, actually admitted that the trump-era tariffs on important goods from china, if we were to lift those altogether, that could help with inflationary pressures is that on the table for the administration >> the administration is doing comprehensive view of the tariffs. what is the economic rational of having them in place and again, this administration, this president is focussed on trying to ease price and looking at every tool in the tool box.
10:16 am
>> i heard you mention build back better and your contention it won't raise inflation. for it's a significant concern of one senator named joe manchin. what would be the arguments you make to him to get his vote? >> i would make three points to him. one is that if we actually look at the federal spending for this fiscal year, 2022, we are facing significant fiscal head winds. there's a fiscal drag that we haven't seen since the end of world war ii in this fiscal year. the build back better plan does not contribute to that that -- the fiscal drag of about 8.5 percentage growth, that is with the build back better plan and the infrastructure bill built in and i would point out these are investments. they spend over time this is not like the rescue plan where we needed to get money into the economy quickly
10:17 am
these are meant to be spent over time and 3rdly, they're meant to be increasing the produlctival capacity of our economy. economists widely agree on this point. >> finally, yesterday, the president made news by arguing today's print would not reflect the decreases we've seen in energy cost. >> what we know is since these data were collected, we've seen moderation and natural gas and in oil prices. and so, as the data are collected for the december print, we would expect to see the decreases reflected then >> thanks so much for your time. obviously a huge story for the markets and we love having you on thank you very much. as we go to break, a look at the road map for the next hour

10:21 am
let me close with a note that i'm going to paraphrase from a very large telecommunic and the note basically said the one thing we've noticed about oracle, oracle's cloud is that it never, ever goes down we can't say that about any of the other clouds >> that was oracle's chairman, larry elson last night on the company's earnings call, taking a bit of a jab at the competition, including of course, amazon web services in the wake of a recent outage. oracle is up sharply they did beat on estimates driven by cloud revenue and the next guest raising price on the stock. yeah, alex, i was going to ask about your price target, which had been noivl
10:22 am
noivl. 95. how about the quarter itself i think it says you're at a hold >> thanks for the question and happy holidays to you and all your listeners i think -- look, it was a strong quarter at a time when not every was having a strong quarter and i think it was vintage larry. the power of the apps. there's easier competition out there than aws and it's some of the other companies and i think you saw that this is a company again that they sort of invented the notion of the cloud at the same time as famously declaring that it was not going to work for large enterprise organizations the thing that stood out to us, the continued momentum of the cloud. this is oracle is investing class and less than a quarter of the revenue and we think it's more than 80% or close to 80% of the incremental growth dollars
10:23 am
and we believe coming out of the pandemic, it was a y 2 k event, if you will for back office transformations and we believe that's going to accelerate next year as a lot of companies are faced, not just with supply chain shortages and a war on talent but a completely different configuration of their entire organization. >> given all that, i'm just curious in the momentum you just described, you know, from your point of view, what is holding you back or giving you pause that you can have a hold rating on the stock >> look, we cover a lot of growth companies and we believe that oracle is now getting into a mode where they're starting to execute effectivally for us, it's time. we've covered oracle for a number of years. there have been false starts before we want to be patient. we want to see the second half
10:24 am
is the mos they're going into their third quarter. fourth quarter we want to see how they execute and if they can keep up the momentum and if they k it's trading below the s&p on a momentum earnings multiple >> do investors fully appreciate the opportunity for a company like oracle or, by the way, amazon or microsoft or others where government contracting work is concerned? >> i thing it's an interesting question the era of mean stocks and wall street bets and one thing that large tech investors love is a old dog that learns new tricks oracle, you can see the pathway microsoft laid many years ago, when they embraced and transitioned fully to the cloud. that's the kind of pattern that oracle wants investors to think about when looking at the opportunity they have.
10:25 am
larry referenced how microsoft moved their office space into the cloud and how the company is now moving its basis of large application and they only moved a thousand out of 8500 in the next five to ten years there's an opportunity to move the rest that's the pattern recognition that can potentially be powerful and if investors start to gain confidence in the durability of the growth and opportunity for it to be more profitable and see more earnings power, the sky is the limit. >> so, here's wait and see a hold rating on oracle right now. what would you buy instead, if you choose one or two names. >> we have a new monic, we call it cat woman the "c" stands for sales force, a ", is for -- and service now it's really this next generation
10:26 am
breed of cloud companies where we think you can benefit from really high level management, great markets and really powerful margins >> alex, thank you appreciate your time >> thank you, guys >> before the break, take a closer look at moderna a big drop following the flu 'rba itwmitey. wee ckn o nus.

previous great britain will require a mask be worn in all places without a vaccine requirement. and a 35-year-old man was taken into custody by an air marshal after allegedly assaulting a flight attendant the delta jet was going from washington to los angeles but then diverted to oklahoma city it appears to be yet another incident of attacks on flights, which seems to be rising for sure i'll send it back to you, david. >> been a very unfortunate year for that let's turn now to megtyrell. she's got a look at moderna's stock, which has dropped today it's not because of covid vaccines, is it, meg >> no. i was actually talking to experts in the space this morning and they're like we never get to talk about anything other than covid it's flu
10:31 am
the first data we're seeing on the flu vaccine efforts. they stack up well against existing flu vaccines. these are the neutralizing antibody levels and they are higher than what is typically used for clearance of vaccines but morgan stanley points out these, quote, appear in line with flu zone hd, an existing high-dose vaccine already on the market, which likely disappoints the market moderna is it making a point that this is not the end of their plans for flu vaccines they plan to combine, ultimately their flu shot with the covid shot and maybe a shot against rsv, another respiratory virus quote, our first shot on flu is non-inferior to the best product in the market people have worked on in 20 or 30 or 40 years in traditional pharma." it's regulatory language, just means they need to show they're
10:32 am
as good as what's already out there. you can see moderna 's stock down 10% as there were high expectations it would blow everything out of the water. >> >>mier i'm not going to lose an opportunity to talk about covid as well. there's been reporting from you or something from interview you did about a potential fourth shot in terms of combatting omicron and people seem confused on twitter tell us what we know >> so, when we talked with albert a couple of days ago and they had their first look at antibody levels generated against omicron, he suggested perhaps for the immuno compromise a fourth dose could be considered and suggested it's not clear if and when we'll need a fourth dose and it would potentially be sooner than what he would be projecting of 12 months between boosters after
10:33 am
this it seems like it's not clear we're going to have to see data. there's been suggestions that data shows three doses hold up well against omicron there's other studies that show the fall off is faster with this variant. this is information we'll get in the coming weeks and months. as we head to a break, keep an eye on shares of amc. got it down 8% a lot of insider selling i've been talking for some time about the ceo. would he sell? well, he has he sold 313,000 shares the cfo left with 96,000 shares. he's out entirely. at least for now maybe he'll get reloaded he's out with the sale of 18,000 shares we're back in two minutes.

inflation rising to a 39-year high, cpi topping 35% for the fifth straight months. costco shrugging off rising costs in q1. and tops forecast. the company saying it's largely able to mitigate the delays. joining us is da davidson's michael baker. we have shares of costco up almost 5% right now. your take away from the earnings report we got after the bell and whether it changes your investment thesis. >> they obviously have a great quarter and the stock is having a terrific reaction. i thought what was important from the call is hearing costco's view on things, like supply chain and inflation and a couple of amazing statistics 79% of their inports have been delayed by an average of 51 days costco's been able to work around that and i think that's a
10:37 am
testament to how the company operates on the inflation side, they're seeing 4.5 to 5.5% increase. some is being passed through customers and they have structural advantages. clearly they're doing a great job and i think stock is being rewarded for it. >> and i think they signalled they may increase some prices going to the new year as well. we've been hearing about it, seeing the macro data and we know many companies, consumer-basing companies have been able to raise prices, for all of their costs push it out to their customer base as well at what point does that dynamic start to tip over or change. if we continue to see inflation numbers and costco, 4.5 to 5% range. if we continue to see inflation growth like that, what point
10:38 am
does that start to dent demand >> i am disappointed that is coming and particularly the food and home inflation is now rising as fast as it has since the pandemic began. for it's been accelerated for four or five straight months. some of the food retailers, costco they go as far as better than they have the previous two quarters but they are down. walmart and target are starting to absorb increases. as i think about 2022. some of the stimulus out in the saw in 2021, is going to go away i think that might make it more difficult for consumers to absorb these higher costs. >> on labor, costco's fames forrall ways having industry-high comp when you look at the small but important vote at starbucks, kellogg, deer, i wonder if you're beginning to fold in the prospect of labor action down
10:39 am
the road with costco >> not specifically labor action we expect their labor rates will continue to increase they pay great salaries and that's continuing. we are seeing higher sga and the sales is so strong they've been able to leverage it. we think there will be persistent labor cost increases, not just for costco but others and for instance, raising wages and trying to close the gap relative to costco as well >> we're largely through this earnings season cycle with retailers. are there other names that you cover that would present buying opportunities right now at these levels given what we know going into 2022? >> actually, we put out a report earlier this week where we highlighted six predictions for 2022, as well as what we learned in the third quarter as we are
10:40 am
now full of and through our earnings reports trends on a two-year basis we're as strong in the third quar quarter. and one we talked about in pjs we think pjs have improved quite a bit from prepandemic growth numbers were just as strong as costco's yet, it's trading at half the multiple of costco and what we highlighted is alta. interestingly their key category hasn't recovered yet to 2019 levels it's one of the few consumer areas that hasn't fully recovered. we think that will be a positive >> all right michael, thanks for joining us today. >> happy to do it. thank you. >> starbucks employees in one buffalo location voting to
10:41 am
create the first union for the company. our cate rogers has the late frs us >> good morning. workers at one starbucks location notching a win, informing the first union since the company went public. starbucks did prevail at a second location, which the union may contest and pending due to unresolved challenges. while the ability to unionize is progress for starbucks workers united they are hopeful starbucks will come to the sttable and hopeful agree to a contract, which they don't have to do meanwhile, rossann williams said they're preliminary and don't change the shared focus with its workers. and three more stores in buffalo and one in mesa, arizona are expecting to organize. as for the broader restaurant industry, this could be an important development. writing thursday, quote, if this move create as tail wind for
10:42 am
other concepts to see their employees follow suit, we expect starbucked could be among the handful of scaled concepts and trillium asset management have called on starbucks to accept the decision of unionizing and the share hltders also allege starbucks meddled in the organizing process tlrs the stock higher this morning, up over 1%. back to you. >> kate, what's next on the timeline with this are we going to see other union hearings for starbucks >> yeah, so for these three stores, they have five days on both sides to present challenges they need to be certified as well there may be additional hearings the one store that did vote to unionize, starbucks doesn't seem like it's going to challenge that one and there are potential
10:43 am
challenges on both sides potentially a long road ahead and the group of workers that did form the union, they have about a year to get to work with starbucks and see if they'll negotiate and agree to a contract if not, workers who are not seeing progress here in the union front can move to dissolve that union after about a year. we'll see what happens but certainly more developments for starbucks to come. >> a year? this is go doining to be an interesting year as we head to break, watching shares of broadcom, upabout 8% along side an upbeat guidance forecast broad band continuing to see high demand from cloud computing customers. more ahead as major averages are higher stay with us

10:48 am
the options expire, i think in august of 2022 >> doing that in large part for tax purposes i mean, i think it's worth noting, maybe not so much with tesla but with spacex. spacex is a government contractor however, i mean, nasa itself, last year, basically came out and said if it wasn't for the commercial crew program, which spacex is part of and it's the only one with an operational capsule carrying astronauts to space, that saved between 20 and $30 billion. it's been taxpayer money that's been saved there's the flip side, at least from a space standpoint, where elon musk is concerned >> meanwhile, it's been interesting watching elon poke lawmakers on twitter but at the same time continue to tease the market about quitting all of his jobs and being an influencer >> i don't think that's going to happen
10:49 am
>> he can probably sell anything >> and build about anything, arguably >> he's unique but it's been an interesting week to hear him he's upset with the potential subsidies for build back better and union jobs, which would not go to tesla and tesla cars he's worried about the deficit for some reason now, which i never heard him talking about in the past >> and the say symmetry between his criticisms of our government and the chinese government they do need china for sure. coming up on "tech check" we're going to talk to the analyst stocks down more than 70% for the year 3861 that's coming up in the top of the hour dow's up 50. don't go away.

10:53 am
remember a time when apple shares were real underperformers and range bound going no where for the first half of the year and we saw a rally that took us to record highs and that was up 42% during the big run since the beginning of june we'll call it there abouts that move in apple, of course, has taken it to market cap highs we've never seen before. it has a massive waiting we already know in places like the s&p 500. the nasdaq 100 and, of course, the technology sector overall within the s&p if you take a look at the moves that we've seen over the course of that period where apple has made that run, it has a large responsibility in kind of pushing that move higher for these indices, the major ones out here in terms of etfs. the qqq trust up 25% and 33% on the year to date basis a lot of that was just from june by the way, for the invesco qqq trust we're talking about apple making 12% or so percent of that
10:54 am
and the tech spdr. check out this particular one. it's a fidelity-related etf. mci information tech 21% waiting to apple, as well. give you some perspective when apple is an overweight in an index. we know what it is and also an etf called the first trust nasdaq 100 equal weight etf. all 100 index components roughly of the same weight but take a look at this. in june you can see kind of roughly tracking together the entire first part of this year and then that divergence really started to happen. if you take a look at the moves here for this equal weighted etf, morgan, we're talking roughly 1.2% waiting for apple versus the massive waiting that we see about 12% or so in the qqq overall. that tends to drive a lot of the divergences that we're seeing.
10:55 am
keep an eye on those guys as we send things over to you, morgan. >> some great context. dom chu, thank you take a look at the top gainers on the s&p for a week which is having an upweek. norwegian cruise lines at the top of the list up 16% oracle, broadcom on the heels of earnings and centene leading the charge we're going to be back in two. wow, we're crunching tons of polygons here! what's going on? where's regina? hi, i'm ladonna. i invest in invesco qqq, a fund that gives me access to the nasdaq-100 innovations, like real time cgi. okay... yeah... oh. don't worry i got it! become an agent of innovation with invesco qqq
