ford junior bought $8.5 million. we told you about it that stock has stored since then maybe one more reason to watch or listen to wex our global focus to juliana in london good morning >> brian, good morning i would certainly agree with you there. european markets are positive on the back foot. the majority of regions are trading higher italian, spannic and uk up higher continuing to watch covid case numbers rise that link between cases and fatalities seems to be
broken one country is taking a big focus taking a different approach that is china. hong kong has announced it is tightening restrictions. the city is on the verge of another covid outbreak on january 8, flights from al around the world will be banned from arriving in the city. closing bars, gyms, nightclubs, shutting restaurants to 6:00 a.m. and limiting tables to two people the territory is sticking by its zero tolerance policy. the asia market did close up shop but it was a negative session. hong kong dollar holding steady versus the u.s. dollar we'll hand it over to you, brian. >> every time they go for the
zero policy, it seems to work for a while and then it doesn't. it is a bizarre cycle there. thank you. >> getting to some other top stori stories. you have an update of course we do >> of course let's talk china mobil hong kong trading shares as well up almost 3% trading with the listing it will buy back less than 10% of its listed shares the cdc declining a negative
test to end isolation in amending guidance. people who have contracted coronavirus can take a rapid antigen test if one is available and if they want to after five day isolation dropping short of making an outright recommendation to test >> approving new packages for key executives their salaries will increase to over $1 million and receiving stock awards between $23 million
and $5 million split between performance base, equity and stock over time. i'm not sure how well that will go over with the rank and file because they were told they were getting automatic increases. >> i know you and i are a certain age we were probably in our late teen, early 20s when the internet was created i keep thinking, i should have been in the interpreter net. >> i moved into this industry because i wanted to be in the internet i did a streaming service. here we are. it is all hot again. >> don't lie to me i know you had a prodigy or a
compuserve email >> an aol. >> some people -- my aunt still does works just fine. true story that stands for america online, folks. we certainly don't want to get way ahead of ourselves let's get way ahead of ourselves. why not? there is a wall street action that claims it will also end the year higher an 80% win rate going up the first five days of january, we end the year higher. still pretty good.
it has failed twice. 2015 and 2018. by mentioning it, we jinxed it some people care some don't do you or is this some sort of historical thing we can do for fun? >> my family history, there's a lot of old wives tales i would put this there right along with them. it is something to talk about. an 80% win rate is good but it is interesting to talk about >> like the dog comes in on a wednesday before it is raining, it is going to snow on friday. there is some historical
background. >> i think the momentum is there for this to be a positive year do i think we'll sit back in december 22 to be positive in the markets, no in the markets and the economy in general overall, i think we are set up for another positive year. >> any particular part of the market you like? are you a believer or a buyer in this rotation that we have seen
in these last few years in tech or chevron you've got this rotation we still have the pent up demand issue. the rising pressure and supply chain comes to bear with some of the falloff. i think things are very positive for the names you are putting on the screen here. >> you wonder what the rate rise would be what we've learned about the bond market is that it doesn't move a lot but it sits there it doesn't move much but when it
does, it moves in great weight do you think the 10-year will move higher? >> i think it will sit there like a super tanker for a while. for a year and a half, i would say listen, normal metrics wouldn't matter. the year 2022 is when we get back to normal metrics mattering and omicron and all those other variants, hopefully, fade into the background and this is the year we get to the other side of covid, if you will >> hard to see how we don't. trying to be sunny side up sullivan thank you for coming up. >> take care we have a lot more to do when we come back on this busy wednesday. why tesla needs to watch its

second best, oxy petroleum, then discovery and shark sweek. general motors, halliburton and schmelecher. five out of six of those make sense. getting to other top headlines warren buffett's number two making a big bet this is not the kind of name i would have thought charlie munger would have been buying. >> nearly doubling its stake in ali baba raising its holdings and making its stake worth $207 million.

alibaba, he was still saying it was okay to crack down on ant group. it is a real interesting way of views there. >> very interesting there. the changes of covid and constantly changing guidelines the cdcity rating, you do not need a negative covid test but amending that saying yes, you could take one if you want, if you can find one this latest twist comes as tests are difficult, if not impossible to find. walmart and kroger raising the price of their at-home covid test as they deal with the white house and the deal of the cost
expired. the inax test rising from $14 to $20 and kroger pricing theirs at $24 in new jersey, a sharp increase of hospitalizations. rising above 5,000 since the earliest days of the pandemic. positive tests have tripled. and pediatrics seeing 176 kids admitted releasing data that the omicron variant is not the problem only accounting for 14% of new cases. joining us now to make sense of all of this, president of university hospital in newark. doctor, need your guidance and insight at this critical time. i don't know if you follow me on social media i'm trying to make sense of the
data what are you seeing on the ground right now >> thank you for having me first, with the omicron variant, it is a less severe variant. so tracking cases as the primary metric doesn't make any sense anymore in terms of society and health tracking hospitalizations and showing health care demand is more important than even when you look down at hospitalizations as of yesterday, our hospital had 115 people with covid out of 360 beds they happened to test positive because they were there for other things and 40% were actually sick. even within the hospital data,
if there was a better way of tracking illness and disease in terms of the case and the strain on hospitals we are facing a very significant staffing shortage anybody has to be out of work at least five days according to the new cdc guidelines to have staff taking care of you in a bed impacts the staff that's my immediate concern. >> this is so important. that first part about hospitalizations that cases are not a great metric anymore in your hospital and by the way, god bless you and all of those putting in the hours
how many of those covid patients are there because of covid or with covid and there with something else and an incidental positive test? >> there with something else with covid is a surprising 60% and 40% are there because of illness. that is a much different break down and something we are seeing earlier. something we have to admit, we are there with respiratory issues and other complications that speaks to the strain because logically, you are only concerned about that 40% that said, you still have to worry about isolating patients
making sure they have the right ppe even if they are not there for the right reason you still have to track overall hospitalizations as well >> this is a critical point too. because 60% are with covid within that 60% but maybe covid has exacerbated them to go to the hospital it is not a clean-cut difference >> true. that 60% denominator could include folks that have a clinical problem eastbound after they got over their infection but that problem is related to having a fever, being at home
and maybe becoming dehydrated. the folks coming in with respiratory disease, low oxygen level in the blood, that break down has become a lot less, which is encouraging that has everything to do with ventilators and the icu demand >> you mentioned something at the top. it is easy to be confused. here is my question. if i break my legend i come in to your hospital if i need to stay overnight. i test positive for covid but i don't have any symptoms. you patch me up. fix my legend put the cast on, am i stuck at the hospital for
five days? >> absolutely not. when you are ready to be discharged and when it is safe for to you go home, we'll send you home whether that is day two, four or eight you are not bound to being in a hospital just because of the isolation guidelines is that is guidance for how long you should stay away from others at home or institution. >> the reason i was asking is i wondered if it was preventing you from discharging patients when they are ready. sounds likes that not the case >> exactly >> doctor, doing god's work. thank you so much. cutting through some confusion take care. coming up from covid to crypto bitcoin finding itself stuck in
a rut in a fight to get back to 50,000 again what might be in store for crypto and that funky nft market wells margo chief risk officer has announced she's stepping down walmart expanding fridge delivery service at home and hiring to support the expansion. and las vegas raiders weigh hiring wynn ceo as predesint it won't matter because they are going to lose to the chargers this week. we'll be right back.

crypto >> i know it is early and web 3.0. tell us where things like ethereum 2.0 and nft may play in this web 3 that many really smart people are working to build out? >> if they are scaling with the 2.0 and tokens are building skarsity without trust this allows creatives to now partake in the internet. believing the token metric in the last few years that makes you one of the first players in the space. >> thank you have a great day >> you are welcome
