reporter in boston, on the defense about the tape during of the liquidity problem. and ms from the beginning. >> the problems they're addressing which is the unemployment rate. and the stimulus that has been poured in, how will they withdraw without having an effect and the equity growth we have seen, the nasdaq hitting the highs we have not seen in a long time, a lot has driven by this liquidity in the market and in this afternoon from ben bernanke, a concern to many people because i run a lot of long distance rates and marathons and in the final stages of that your legs are tired and weak and anything can make you slip up and that is what i would equate the markets to. we are in the late stages of this rally and the liquidity, any news from the fed, and --
12:07 pm
cheryl: because the markets are tired, also saying you mention the jobs picture, the employment picture, that is a negative sign for the economy. economy has not recovered. now on news from goldman sachs and estimates on gdp, these are markets negatives but not sure the market prayers of real looking at the dow down 27. and we care about that? >> exactly right, talking about the gdp figures and in the last quarter gdp commentary about reduced consumer spending, that is the bigger picture in the second half of the year. a lot of analysts are talking about how they expect acceleration of earnings growth in the second half of the year. that will be hard to come by with a lot of individuals and to workers with higher payroll tax because it went back into effect jan. first but we haven't seen a lot of high wage earners, those
12:08 pm
that will be affected by additional medicare tax for the obamacare that will have an impact in the second half of the year and as that starts to settle in with those investors we will see reduce spending so with reduced consumer spending which is two thirds of the gdp figures i fail to see how this will continue to expand, and market any further. >> you are investing for income later. do you think a lot of equity investors are missing the boat, having said that in taught -- e opposition you are recommending, your portfolio breakdown, alternative, is that reits or quantities? >> we have reits in real-estate and business development companies which are making loans to private u.s. businesses, those are floating rate loans, will and gas are part of it, we are from texas and got to have
12:09 pm
that. we like energy. a lot is in the traded space. there are a lot of questions what is an alternative, where is it, we try to look at for example the underlying asset. what are the underlying fundamental investments inside that company and for property reasons the tangible real-estate for business development companies is the actual loans of declassify those. cheryl: you mentioned energy, picked that the stock actually down about 4%. >> we are. last time we were on we talked about that and what we think our longer-term values and we are trying to do, 20% in cash as well. our clients who are near retirement, and trying to be very mindful of deploying that cash in where we see value. and we have good valuation. cheryl: we would love teddy back
12:10 pm
with more picks. we will be talking -- and at the bottom of the hour with gregg jarrett. also this story we are following today, pork and politics mixing on capitol hill this morning, smithfield executives will be talking in front of a senate committee over his company's proposed $4.7 billion sale, senate agricultural committee chairwoman, one of the most vocal congressional critics, joined as a couple weeks ago right here on markets now. >> a very spotty food safety record. what happened if they are allowing that branch to go to china before standards are high enough. cheryl: that is her opinion. joining us is research, derek scissors who disagrees. she will be leading the charge, the one that wanted him to testify.
12:11 pm
how are the standards going to be changing for smithfield? i don't understand what heard point is? >> she has two points, one which she didn't say but she says all the time which is the united states shouldn't sell large companies to china and that is where she is out of line. it is not the american government's business tel company weather will sell itself to another company. per second point about quality control, it is of real point, after they by smithfield has to obey u.s. law and that is the department of agriculture, food and drug administration, if the senate is worried about u.s. law, that is what they should focus on it is a perfectly reasonable complaint but it is a mass for protectionism. cheryl: you yourself we should mention have provided congress multiple times about the issue of china, this is your specialty. what can use a today? to get him off of his back.
12:12 pm
the unions back co-ceo and shareholders back the steel, no one says this deal should not go through but basically that is it. >> you hit the nail on the head. one word china is used you get a lot of posturing whether it is china currency or acquisitions or any issue you can come up with and there is nothing to do to get him behind it and there are other members of congress like that, they are using this to make speeches about how bad china is. there are problems in chinese behavior. this deal is a good deal, a deal supported by stockholders supported by the union. this is political theater. got a chance to talk about china so i will hold a hearing. cheryl: that is what we're doing and we will monitor what is said about the transaction because shareholders and investors are curious to see what happens if there is going to be any fallout but the statement is not. let's talk about the future of smithfield. isn't it true that china and the
12:13 pm
chinese consumer are really looking for that pork coming from u.s.-based production to go overseas? wouldn't this be a boost for the company itself as far as its output? >> this is better assets to the biggest in the world because antitrust rules which i think are a good idea, can't really span in the u.s. they can expand endlessly in china so it is a great opportunity for smithfield. execution will be tricky. you don't magically know how to operate in china and the u.s. at the same time because you combine these companies so that is something to watch but if they can pull that off this is a great opportunity for smithfield. cheryl: we have seen consuming countries that ban wheat from oregon because it is genetically modified like smithfield, thank you very much for your take on this, you where the person to ask, thanks, derrick. >> thank you. cheryl: what you read e-books or

now back to cheryl. cheryl: taxes are the number one threat to global business. a new survey of business leaders around the world this came out from lloyd's of london companies fail to be more concerned about the growing threat of cyberhacking, lloyd's of london, businesses focusing too much on the short term and he joins me now, good to see you. let's talk about this survey. this survey changed substantially for the past few years, the number one threat is taxes. this is 13 on a list of worries for global companies and why have taxes of predominantly taken ceos and their attention from doing business? >> in part because taxes so
12:28 pm
often impress these days, governments around the globe are faced with falling revenues, looking at ways of boosting their coffers, taxation is one of them and we continue to your tax reports of taxation and global companies like starbucks, amazon, in the press, and talk to ceos, it is not high taxation or low taxation but around certainty of taxation, all in the business world needs stability and certainty to plan and there's a lot of uncertainty and the moment. cheryl: one thing we should point out is lloyd of london much of your business is based in the united states that the survey was global. in the united states, executives have concerns about the corporate tax rate which is the second highest in the world's. at the same time a round world taxation doesn't seem to me -- i would think cybersecurity would be more of a threat especially if you are operating in parts of europe or asia.
12:29 pm
>> i can agree with that. when you look at the u.k. corporate tax rate it is one of the lowest, it is more reputation risk from taxation more than anything else but cyberof risk is a real threat and it is on people's agenda. in 2009 when we started the search at number 20, years ago, number 12, and now it is up at number 3 and there are various aspects to cyberrisk whether it is a mischievous employee or a hacker or whether it is someone trying to take down the cause or material damage to infrastructure or criminal activity. cyberrisk is a real risk we face in the business world and we need to prepare against it. cheryl: what do ceos need to be focused on in your opinion? >> cyber is one of those risks at the forefront of their minds. the other risks that times we
