tv   FOX Business After the Bell  FOX Business  July 12, 2013 4:00pm-5:01pm EDT

4:00 pm
[closing bell rings] adam: athenahealth struck a deal. right? >> up 20% and certainly a big winner. liz: take a breath, everybody here on the friday. here we go. the bells close it down on wall street. look how stocks are finishing the day. dow jones industrials trying to eke out a gain. you have to watch the board, we're up, we're down as the trades settle, we'll see what happens. looks like the s&p is a winner up four points. russell 2000, up time after time, another all-time high. russell up 3.25 points. not bad for the small and mid-cap stocks. adam: that fire which broke out on a ethiopian airliner boeing 787. not good for bowing. prompting a temporary shut down at runways at heathrow. it involved a internal fire on the aircraft. nobody was on the plane. boeing's stock fell more than 4%
4:01 pm
on that news. liz: activist investor carl icahn we told you on "after the bell" he would up his bid for dell. he has. adding a warrant to it. adding value for shareholders would be 15.5a share, to $18 a share versus the dell offer which is at $13.65. adam: talking about reversal of fortune. media companies that own hulu decided not to sell the o.w.n. lie video site. the companies say they will maintain their stakes and recapitalize the company with 750 million bucks, a cash infusion. liz: china's finance minister says the country's economic growth rate will likely average 7% this year. that would be great for the u.s. that would not be good for china because it is below the 7.75% target. however the minister said the economy would not suffer a so-called, hard landing. adam: jpmorgan posted a 31% in second-quarter earnings as underwriting income increased
4:02 pm
and bond market trading revenue jumped. >> us airways shareholders voting to approve a merger with amr, giving them a 2% stake in the world's largest carrier. the $12.8 billion deal announced in february but now official, takes amr out of bankruptcy court protection. "after the bell" on this friday starts right now. adam: maybe friday but money sleeps for nobody. we want to get right to the action. we have jim lowell advisor, chief investment officer with three ways that you can play the market. joe cusack is in the pits of the cme. joe, good to see you. are you surprised what we have witnessed just in the last two days? the dow was down, actually, we're going to end positive on the dow today. who would have guessed this was going to happen? >> you know what? at this point nothing really surprises me. but i will tell you as a trader
4:03 pm
it has been difficult, getting up in this territory, it has been a tough trade. and so, with not moving, showing no fear. bulls not relinquishing any control at this stage. we sometimes scratch our heads at this but you just trade it. liz: i want everybody to look right below joe. you can sigh the dow eked out a gain of two points. what does that tell you? that is real resilience. earlier in the session we were up at 37 points but at one point we were down 50. so where does the psychology continue to flow from, that is more positive than negative and hey, we're not complaining? >> i mean here, let's look at the overall marketplace. we have, you know, a lot of cash and a lot of capital that is now moving, conspicuously moving we've seen the action in the bond market. it did pick up a little bit today. but there is money out there that has to go to work.
4:04 pm
it is looking at this market right now. it is the best place at this juncture to be participating but it is really hard at these lofty levels to get. adam: jim, i have to ask you. you heard joe talking about money put to work. will we see more money out of bond going into equities or is this market at a point we need to take a breather, take your profits? >> we're to the traders. we're long-term investors. we're looking for opportunities that materialize not just now but three years down the road. i think you find opportunities in the stock and bond market especially globally especially inside the eurozone where nobody wants to dip a toe. it is force of money, velocity of money. it is also the necessary long-term issue investors need to procapital gains in order to retire at some point down the road. liz: there are opportunities, aren't there? when you look at the landscape, tell us, forget tell us. show us the money beginning with sectors is the real opportunity in the next six months? >> i think the global consumer
4:05 pm
is exhibiting remarkable signs of strength as obviously the u.s. consumer. anything related to the consumer staples theme or the consumer discretionary spending theme i think likely will be a good investment now and year-end. i also think as i mentioned. europe, very beleaguered. nobody wants to touch it. we're looking for rubies in the rubble. a manager there jeff weiss, has a long term track record turning over stones and -- liz: what is in there, jim? >> what you're looking at is across the board, it's a large cap growth tilt and a heavy skew towards europe. 54% of his assets in europe. the rest between japan and the u.s. he is making a call on the strength of the established markets over the emerging markets he could clearly invest if he wanted to. we also continue to love health care. lower risk, higher return profile remains intact not just because of necessary demographic
4:06 pm
growth stories and globally but the emerging market demand for more health care services. whether i shares global health care, ixj. vanguard has a health care fund etf, vxt we like active managers in the space with vanguard and fidelity. three key areas of opportunity, consumer, health care and i think europe. adam: hey, joe, give me the argument why i should ignore what jim just said. do you like health care as much as he does or would you put your money elsewhere? >> i think jim brings up an excellent point, if you're out there investing you are going to diversify. great to have that component. if you're trading, three months ago, nice play. you keep that in your quiver. right now i'm not trading it. jim is looking from a long term perspective. a lot of traders at optionsxpress and schwab are doing same allocation on their own behalf and using options and etfs jim was mentioning and their funds. they're looking for more active
4:07 pm
point of view and they're getting in and out of optimal times, maybe before tops and maybe getting in, well after a bottom is formed but they're seeing great returns and actively managing it prude dentally. i it i that is what jim's saying over the long term with balanced portfolio. i'm saying active verily manage winners as you see them coming. liz: picking winners is super tough. jim what about fixed income? is there opportunity there? how do you see it? where are you finding rubbes in the rubble? >> there is significant opportunities across the fixed income board, probably not in long-term treasurys or anything longer term duration. liz: avoided those. >> i would definitely avoided those. the emerging market debt space which certainly delivered significant gains for us over the last several years is a space we're a little bit leery of now. we like global high income, domestic high income, chicken hearted ways to play the equity markets in conservative funds.
4:08 pm
adam: when you mentioned you would like, you know, dipping your toe into europe, shouldn't we be more cautious? they're in recession over there. how are they going to pull themselves out? >> well, sure, look, not only are they in recession in general but their unemployment rates keep going up. part and parcel i guess part of a socialist overlay but also a key concern but that kind of concern is driving good investors away and quality companies down. so if you have an active manager who knows how to go into that plays and fend off the fears and focus on the fundamentals, you're going to find some significant gains there. we think we have the right manager for the job. adam: jim lowell, joe cusick, we'll see you in a few minutes. jim, thank you very much. we'll have the s&p futures with joe in about five minutes. thank all. >> thanks. liz: you may have already booked your summer vacation but is now the time to book some profits for your portfolio? check into some hotel stocks? we're giving you our second half
4:09 pm
setup in the sector with a top analyst. that's next. adam: the russell 2,000 is hitting an all-time high for the fifth straight day and outperforming the major indices in the past month. we have three small cap names that can give you some big returns. we want to hear from you. jpmorgan and wells fargo reporting earnings today with both firms beating estimates. should you invest in financials as more big names get set to report next week? log on to we'll read your answeranswers later this hour.

4:13 pm
marketing as well. product pipeline and marketing are the best they have seen in years for wendy's. great news, right? bmo upgrading wendy's to outperform. looking at margin expansion for the company. great news news for the fast-fod giant. >> all you have to know is have a softy on a hot day. liz: and taco salad. adam: thank you, nicole. liz: the s&p futures are closing. let's head back to joe kucik in the pits of the cme? a lot can happen between now and then? we have a lot of european date that that will be coming out. we want to focus on retail seas on monday morning. as far as the s&pes are concerned we're in lofty territories. as i said earlier the bulls have not real link wished control. we want to see if we get more momentum or volume to further spur this upside. otherwise i continue to expect we have this choppy trade we saw today. liz: good to see you, joe.
4:14 pm
have a good weekend. >> you too. adam: your summer travel plans may be booked but as we move into the second half of this year is it now the time to move into hotel stocks? liz: joining us for the hotel sector, will marks, managing director and senior research analyst for jmp securities. some of these have looked real iffy where some travel sites like priceline have taken off when it comes to the actual stock themselves. how do you pick your favorites in this sector? >> it's a little tricky, the group tends to trade together. all the stocks are up 11, 12% this year. but in my view you need to find stocks that aren't well-liked today. and so, that may sound crazy we look for sort of flawses how the market views the group and found what i think are going to be a few winners for the second half based on that. adam: one of them is starwood, right? what is it you like about starwood? 50% of their properties are outside the united states?
4:15 pm
wouldn't that be a bit after concern? you have a slowdown in asia and problems in europe? >> he really looked at that being priced in. i think asia is priced in. it is well-known growth will slow in asia but at the same time starwood has a huge pipeline, the biggest pipeline among hotel companies in asia in terms of new development. in europe, i think we're trending along the bottom. yes, there could be more downside and i think europe is having upside and starwood is better positioned there than any other competitor. liz: i really love how you put you look for companies where the market has a flawed outcome for them. you like real estate investment trusts as well. explain to people, that is little bit trickier, is it not? you're looking at great yields but you have to be careful? >> more leverage to the upside and more leverage to the downside. meaning real es straight investment trusts all they do is own properties.
4:16 pm
they don't operate them. they hire operators like marriott and starwood to operate their hotels. there is more leverage, if things go wrong, the operator doesn't get hurt as much as the owner in the reit. adam: if you're playing a reit for what you get paid in the yield, which of these do you like? >> well, so, probably our favorite today, our favorite today, not probably, is rhyme man hospitality. this was this company called gaylord entertainment. it converted to a reit at the beginning of this year. ryman is four large convention hotels. there is no other company like it. the protection they pay out half of its cash flow as a dividend. it is about a 5.2% dividend yield i believe. there is plenty of room for upside because they're only paying out half their cash flow. i like that as profession. back to my earlier comment finding a company with flaws, rye man is a stock many people hate today, really focus is on
4:17 pm
group. group recovers later in a cycle. there have been a concern about group bookings being slow. we're starting to hear signs from channel checks that group bookings are picking up. ryman is looking for that and their hotels rooms are 2,000 in size and they're planning ahead. >> listen to what you just said. you done the homework and looking for bookings and things like conventions are starting to come back. when you hear him say ryman properties where it is now might not necessarily be where it is later. it could see some real revenue. talk about revpar, revenue per available room when it comes to the entire industry. is it looking a little better? -- revpar. >> second half could be slower. first half was up, revenue per available room, basically revenues at hotels. you don't hear people canceling their summer vacations the
4:18 pm
outlook is pretty good for the second half of the year. it may slow a little bit into the 5% range. the expectation for the year is five and 6% revpar growth. there is the expectation, next year, 2014 picks up a little bit and part of that is because maybe the greatest thing going on in the hotel sector almost no supply growth. adam: who would you avoided? when you say no supply growth, would you want to be targeting say one of these companies if they have plans for big construction or would you want to be careful of that given what is happening with revenue per room? >> well, i think when you got to do, most of the construction, i should say most, but a lot of it is actually new york, is probably the primarily the area of new construction and chicago is another but the u.s. construction levels of rooms, room supply growth, is expected to be, less than a percent this year. about a percent next year. historical averages are about 2.2%. so in general, the u.s. isn't really expanding that much in terms of room supply. so it looks pretty good. if you own a hotel in the u.s.,
4:19 pm
perhaps outside of certain areas of new york you're in really good shape for the next couple of years. adam: i was just thinking as you were doing all this for us you checked it out so people can check in. those stocks sound like a plan. all the best. >> thank you very much. thank you. liz: we need to get to boeing. this of course became a huge story this afternoon. boeing's stock having its worst day today in nearly two years. after a fire on a 787 dreamliner jet in london's heathrow airport broke out. we don't know if it had anything to do with the actual engines. we'll bring you the latest on the search for the cause of that fire. adam: small caps are outperforming s&p 500 and the dow. the russell hit a new all-time high for six straight days. where should investors buy? we have bigs and you want to hear them when we come back of. ♪

4:25 pm
issue, issuing only a short statement saying we have boeing personnel on the ground at heathrow. we're working to fully understand and address this. this after boeing returned the 787s to the skies several weeks ago after the problem with lithium-ion batteries. ge was quick to speak up today, saying the fire was not caused by their engines. according to ethiopian airlines website the company currently has four dreamliners in the fleet including today's plane and they have nine more on order with boeing. the ntsb is sending a representative to look at the problem as well. more problems in the sky just after that heathrow fire. a major british charter carrier, thompson airways, announced it ground ad dreamliner bound for florida, from manchester. they cited quote, technical issues. everyone got back safely but boeing definitely bruised, liz and adam. liz: although we had an analyst on last hour said this was a
4:26 pm
buying opportunity an same thing happened with the real battery problems. the stock has done pretty much a moon shot since then. thank you, jo ling. >> thank you. adam: the russell 2000 has been out outperforming the broader indices? uh-huh and if so where do you put your money to work? liz: we have names. this isn't something you don't hear too often, products made in the u.s. being snapped in china. total reversal. coming up we're talking to one toy company's ceo who is taking the export fight back to china. snowed ♪ (announcer) scottrade knows our clients trade

versus the u.s. dollar after fitch cut france's credit rating to aa-plus from aaa, finally. france has some real problems. it took them a while. the euro fell to an intraday low of 1.30 against the green back. adam. adam: sometimes big things can come in small packages. the russell 2000 hit all-time intraday high and six in a row and has been outperforming other u.s. indexes the last several months. now is the question, is it good time to get into small cap stocks? liz: according to barry randall, it is. his small cap tech fund is outperforming the russell 2000 which is no small feat. he is lear with some of his favorite small cap stocks. barry, i can not count how many times people have come on, starting three, four years ago, small cap rally is over. been going for 10 years. this thing, it is such a cliche to say the energizer bunny, my mother would say, don't say it but it is. the bunny is going on and on and
4:31 pm
on. how much longer does it have the energy to continue? >> well i think it still has some good legs to go. and, you bring up the time frame. i started hearing these think pieces about two years ago, people saying small caps were over and it was over anddever since then people have been renewing that promise but fact is small caps historically performed well versus large caps, just to putnam members to it in the last 10 years. s&p 500, large cap index gone up on annualized basis of 5.3% versus the russell 2000 which has gone up 8.1% on an annualized basis. the numbers support the ideas that small caps outperform historically. i don't think there is any reason to believe that will stop anytime soon. the risk -- i'm sorry, go ahead. adam: you were about to get into risk factor. that is what i want to ask you b people are comfortable what they're familiar with. average investors are comfortable with s&p 500 but what are risks if you want to
4:32 pm
look at something, over 8% return versus the s&p 500 you have to look at that so what are the risks? >> the risk for small cap in particular if you're invested in high equal small caps the risks come largely from outside, political risk, economic risk, headline risk. and so the goal when you're selecting stocks for a portfolio or for your individual investor to find high quality names that can endure some of that risk, headline risk, ups and downs and bounces from the market. as far as specific risk, obviously that is unique to any particular company. i could talk about that with some of my favorite names but -- liz: get to one. this is fascinating the one that we're going to start with, nic, which is egov, websites that they run for different states. i would think because we don't know how each individual state is going to be able to perform with tax revenues and still climbing out of recessionary unemployment rates, et cetera, you still believe that's a risk worth taking with egov?
4:33 pm
>> that's an excellent question, excellent point, liz. the think about egov that is unique, virtually all of their state customers, they run 30 of the 50 u.s. states web presence. so maine .gov, for example is run and operating by them. the primary risk is payment risk. the reality most of egov's business is on split payment businessp instead of collecting tax revenue and paying someone to build your website, what they do, collect fees based on whatever the website is used for. renew a fishing license or want to stay in state park to have to pay a fee, egov splits that money with state. so this sidesteps the usual funding problem for anything related to a state-operated business. so they have been doing this about 23 years. they're basically a monopoly. either the state does it themselves or they hire egov to do it. the growth opportunity for egov while they have 30 states they have only one of the top 10 most
4:34 pm
pop youlous states, texas. adam: what about, is it imax technologies? they're up 42% over the fifth weeks. do they make the stuff i touch when i use an ipad screen or stuff like that. >> you may be depending on the manufacturer of the tablet. they make driver chips, semiconductor chips that drive any kind of flat panel display. whether a large screen tv all the way down to something like google glass which they're reported to be designed into. you and i candies agree whether or not google glass will ever be a success but himax has a high customer list and generate a lost cash. despite the returns you just described the stock is not especially expensive at this time. moreover, recently earnings estimates going up for the company giving a me a the love confidence going forward. nothing is certain but a lot of signs are positive for himax right now. liz: let me get to your last pick, tetk.
4:35 pm
this is opportunity for the environmental people who are looking to do sort of green things but talk about this name. it is far from its 52-week high, unlike egov which is close to its 52-week high. >> true. tetra is in the business largely of engineering and remediation when it comes to environmental issues. states will employ ttek to clean up and remediate brownfield sites or do engineering work in preparation for things like fracking or other types of drilling. so the large, megatrend that is going on with fracking and horizontal drilling and so on favors tetra. their recent difficulties are the result of external issues. specifically the u.s. government is engaged in a little bit of with them as it relates to payables. the payables are not in dispute. the canadian operations run afoul into smaller issues there
4:36 pm
overall the trend is intact with tetradespite these recent issues. adam: bayry randall, great to have you here. thanks for the comments on those picks. >> you're welcome. liz: we'll put his picks up on american stores are filled to the brim with toys made in china but how about a company trying to reverse that tide and sell u.s.-made toys to chinese people? that is exactly what konx ceo is doing. the ceo joins us with his latest full out effort to do so. senator elizabeth warren and some other senators want to go back to the future with bank regulation. it has spark ad fire of protests from guess who, the banks. but we'll be right back. ♪

liz: i know this is not going to shock anybody. china dominates the global toy market. really? last year, u.s. toy imports totaled $33.5 billion. that is 3 times the amount of toy exports. what an unbalanced situation, right? could this tide ever be reversed. one toy manufacturer, kinex is trying. earlier this year it brought nearly all of its manufacturing back to the u.s. from china. now it has signed deals to export its products that it is making here to china. with us now is the guy who is doing it. kinex's ceo and president. good to have you back. we now really love the story because it turns on its head conventional wisdom all toys are made in china and sold to people here in the u.s. what in the end made you make
4:42 pm
this decision. because in the end you're a businessman and you will not do something stupid because the principle of it? >> thank you very much, liz. i'm glad to bring this story to you. we look around the world, china has a growing affluent community and growing middle class cohort as well. for us to grow internationally which is part of our building worlds kids love strategy, kids love all the planet, 150 million live in the u.s. but many live in china. let's bring the great products we make over there over here. liz: what do the kids like? you make certain building toys and other products related to, say, for example, angry birds and super mario. >> exactly. when we think about the chinese marketplace the most downloaded app in china is angry birds. we're the exclusive provider of angry birds building sets. nintendo is used by hundreds of millions of people in china today. we're only ones bring you nintendo building sets and
4:43 pm
