1:02 pm
>> the american people, democrats, republicans, independentss are fed up with this gridlock, this obstruction. the american people want washington to work for american families once again. >> the rules apply to them, to them. and another said to everybody else. he may just as well have said it feel like the rules of the senate you can keep them. if you like rules of the senate you can keep them. >> that is a nod to president obama's if you like your health care plan you can keep away. this leads the way for a a federal housing finance agency has, favors principle right downs on government controlled mortgages from borrowers and anymore and their homes than their worth.
1:03 pm
the acting director has blocked the administration's efforts saying such a move is fiscally irresponsible. the confirmation likelier, would reverse that policy. adam: does this interfere with the concept of checks and balances between the branches of government? even within the senate? >> this concept of minority rights in the senate, that the senate has had since its inception, that you needed a large sense of consensus in the senate again seeking an and the minority party could block almost anything and that has been the case and remains the keys on major pieces or other pieces of legislation. democrats point that republicans were abusing that. republicans say it is their right and here we are. lori: the dow on track for another record close, the eighth record this month and a 40th this year. it is not scared off investors,

1:05 pm
january or march i think it is completely data dependent but the fact is they are talking about this wooden nickel because they want the paper. lori: the treasury market is taking matters into its own hands because we have seen a rise in short-term interest rates. what do you think the fed is looking at that and saying especially considering comments from lacquer, jeff lacher, not voting in this cycle but obviously very hawkish and saying enough with the q e purchases. enough is enough. >> there's a ton of confusion. look what charlie said yesterday out of chicago, talking about making 1.5 trillion purchases so there is a lot of confusion, a lot of cross speak. at the end of the day when you have to focus on is whether q e is still seen as being effective and whether the fed believes there are at the bubble. lori: the question is janet yellen, how she will orchestrate
1:06 pm
the exit strategy and you point out it is on purpose that she's not giving us any indication. >> she can't. lori: she is testifying before congress. >> in the testimony can't say i believe we will tabor at x because of this. that would kick her hand, make market participants trade in ways i don't think the fed really want them to. i think right now the fed is kind of in this range bound area just like reits are range bound right now and bond market participants have done a really good job taking duration out of their portfolios and substituting more credit risk so i think is individual investors you have to really think about whether you want to hold bonds to maturity, individual bonds or you want to be in funds will you have more duration risk. lori: you have called the great rotation yet some other

1:08 pm
it in an index and 2014 is a different scenario. actively managed portfolios will perform better. there is some discrete areas in the market taking the advantage of commodity weakness. we like the airlines because the price of oil is coming down. that is an interesting trade and if you believing grows in the u.s. you want to look at technology as well. lori: great to see you. adam: the european central bank is thinking about cutting its deposit rating to negative territory. this means banks would have to pay to hold money at the ecb. the idea behind this move would be to make it less attractive for banks to hold onto their cash and instead went into borrower is stimulating the european economy but ecb president mario draghi said, quote, there is no news since the ecb's last meeting. lori: the united states auto

1:14 pm
stories that have been written about pr's economy are being written as if these were exposes seeing these are problems for puerto rico and they are about to sink in the caribbean sea. these are old stories. puerto rico has had economic problems since 2006 but more importantly fiscally they are solving their problems and if anything i feel stronger than i did a year ago about porter rico being able to pay its debt. adam: why does the yield and come due in 2001,.1% above the benchmark? it is yielding 8%. >> it is irrational pricing, because fans of the inflamed by reading general media reports about pr's economic problems comparing their debts to other states. puerto rico is not a stick but if it were, direct debt burden would be higher than it would be for illinois and mississippi or massachusetts bucks it is not burdened by the federal deficit
1:15 pm
and the debt burden that goes along with an. when you compare that pr is not in bad shape. adam: the shark circling whether it is and the cheaper not ended the island cannot borrow at affordable rates won't we cms sells off? three quarters of muni bond funds in the country have exposure to puerto ricans debt and sell something and they may wind up selling whatever as opposed to what they should sell. >> a lot of veteran analysts believe puerto rico's debt is money good meaning when it comes time to the interest and principal is going to be paid back. there's a lot of concern about reading the negative media reports and i have to be honest of hamel concerned two or thre weeks ago there were hedge fund managers would not know municipal bond it they did them in the face claiming puerto rico with a $0.10 on the dollar. that is ludicrous. if you look at the facts and you know what is going on you know puerto rico's debt is many good.

adam: hugh point of the strong steps puerto rico has taken, any new hires in the government sector, a 401(k) pension, it is not the defined benefit contribution plan. they have raised taxes, something we would never have done in the united states on the skills they have done it. you see all of this as money good. this is a good long-term bet. >> these are extraordinary measures for rico has taken similar to what new york had to take when they were in the financial crisis and they did default in 1975. a lot of people don't realize that because they called the illegal moratorium but n.y. city failed to pay its debt. and a law review held on to new york city debt in 1975 crisis and didn't panic you came out ahead, got your money back and you even actually probably made better income. i believe the same will happen for puerto rico. adobe puerto rico has a default on its debt. it has taken extraordinary measures to handle its financial affairs. i think it is monday good.
1:17 pm
adam: i appreciate your being here because we had other people who said just the opposite. good to have both sides of this. all the best to you. >> my neck is out there, thanks. adam: hope you do better than the thanksgiving turkey. lori: let's get an update on the markets, the dallas up before points. lessee nicole petallides on the stock exchange, taking a look at a company david einhorn is moving hire. nicole: is great if you are of land hoping 17, 16,000 levels and making money in your 401(k) and iras. micron raising the target to $18 today and in this hour we are watching closely because feeling capital's and data 9 koren was reportedly saying he had a long position at micron technology, this is reported from the new york city robin hood investment conference and was reported on twitter he said exactly is that and they continue to challenge

press conference. you know, ralph nader, shareholder activist -- adam: if government does this, give everybody a free corvair. >> maybe do another deal with jamie dimon and -- next bank they sue, do that as shareholder relief, homeowner relief. adam: charlie gasparino. thank you very much. lori: while you gentlemen were talking the dow hit that milestone, that psychological mark of 16,000. let's go ahead to see what's behind the move with jonathan corpina joining us from the floor of the new york stock exchange. what do you think? will we close at 16,000 today? >> market is showing strong enough strength for to us continue this rally. i don't know if we will get, be able to close there today, just because the fact when you have a big move like this, when you get closer to the end of the day, you get short-term profit-taking. we'll see if it rolls through tomorrow. but, we have economic data that helped this market. the yellen confirmation clearly is something that solidifies investor's confidence where we'll be for the rest of the year. the normal year-end rally.
1:47 pm
we're talking about year-end rally already. we'll start to see momentum with six weeks left to go in the year. lori: everybody is very comfortable with the balance of the year but 2014 presents a whole new host of challenges. so do you think these levels will sustain through the first quarter? asking you for a little bit of a midterm outlook here. where do we go from the new year? >> it will be interesting to see what happens during the first quarter. that is when we will see the taper conversation continue and in fact the actual execution of taper will affect our markets. so i think we'll continue this momentum forward. we might take one or two steps back but those two steps back have to be taken very, very lightly because of the fact that we have moved so far already. so, i think this rally continues this year. we will, continue in the first quarter of next year. lori: jonathan, thanks for your analysis. >> thank you. adam: just reminder, in just a few minutes president obama will make comments from the white house as the senate goes nuclear. historic vote on capitol hill. that it could have major
1:48 pm
implications on the confirmation of janet yellen to become the next fed chair. we'll mare what the president has to say about it next when we come back.
1:49 pm
1:50 pm
adam: is your tv spying on you? not as crazy as it sounds of the jo ling kent has details how one tv-maker is logging information about you. >> 45-year-old customer huntley was shocked that the lg smart tv was transmitting what he was watching back to lg. unencrypted metadata was sent to a server every time he changed the data. he discover ad data collection setting on by default.
1:51 pm
when you turn it off it still send data out. files he wanted watched from the external b-drive, plugged into the tv also transmitted. lg tra on admitted to fox business smart tvs collect data for ads and recommendation purposes. a spokes person said we verified even when the function is turned off by viewers it continues to transmit viewing information although the data is not retained by the server. firmware update is being prepared for immediate rollout will correct the problem on all affected lg smart tvs, so when the feature is disabled no data is transmitted lg admitted that the tvs collect data from usb device,. they said they will stop that too. they said they regret any concerns the issues cause. the concern didn't seem to affect the lg stock dramatically. it was down one 1/3% when markets closed on cry yaw. we checked into the samsung the world's largest tv maker.
1:52 pm
they told ap they do not collect information on files and usb hard drives connected to its tvs. adam: can you say class action against key net or otherwise known as lg? jo, thank you very much. lori: don't want to know what we're watching in our home. raises all kinds of questions. thanks, jo. battle between microsoft and google heats up in latest effort against the anti-google campaign. microsoft releases mugs and t-shirts focus on google privacy concerns. keep calm while we steal your data. a shirt will set you back 12 bucks. no word whether google plans to retaliate. they have been duking over youtube and. they have competing smartphone operating systems so. adam: i'm still hung up on the lg thing. that is class-action lawsuit waiting to happen. it is breaking news. we're minutes away from president obama's comments from the white house as the senate goes nuclear and historic vote on capitol hill could have major implications on the confirmation
1:53 pm
of janet yellen to become the next fed chair. we'll hear what president obama has to say about it all next. lori: plus the government unloading its remaining stake in gm. good for the car company but guess who winds upholding the bag? yeah, you, me, all of us taxpayers, we the taxpayers. liz macdonald ahead on bills it will cost you. reports suggest that obama care contains a marriage penalty. would you consider living in sin to save money on insurance. rich edson investigates all this coming up as cheryl casone and ashley webster take you through the next hour here on the fox business network. don't miss it.

can't-miss hour of "markets now." top of the hour, markets steaming along nicely, thank you very much. let's get down to nicole petallides at the nyse. nicole. >> triple-digit gains for the dow jones industrials, up 103 points right now, sitting above 16,000, 16,003 at the moment. if we were to close that would be the 40th record close for the dow jones industrials in the year 2013 and our 8th this month of november. as we await the president, we're watching drug stocks, retail stocks, and dollar is virtually flat as gold pulls back some. we're keeping an eye on target, the retailer, after they came out with their numbers and showed weakness as well. earning fell 46%. target is coming under pressure. the number of transactions they actually had in their stores declined 1.3% but turns out the people who were shopping, actually bought more. the average went up. the president. cheryl: here's the president. >> probably never been more
1:59 pm
frustrated with washington and one of the reasons why that is over the past five years we've seen an unprecedented pattern of obstruction in congress that's prevented too much of the american people's business from getting done. all too often we've seen a single senator or a handful of senators choose to abuse arcane procedural tactics, to unilaterally block bipartisan compromises. or, to prevent well-qualified, patriotic americans from filling critical positions in public service in our system of government. now, at a time when millions of americans have desperately searched for work, repeated abuse of these tactics have blocked legislation that might create jobs. they have defeated actions that would help women fighting for equal pay. they prevented more progress than we would like for striving young immigrants trying to earn
2:00 pm
their citizenship. or, it has blocked efforts to end tax breaks for companies shipping jobs overseas. they have even been used to block common sense and widely-supported steps to protect more americans from gun violence, even as families of victims sat in the senate chamber and watched. they prevented far too many talented americans from serving their country at a time when the country needs their talents at most. it has been harmful to our economy and harlful to our democracy, and brought us to a simple majority vote no longer seems to be sufficient for anything, even routine business, through what is supposed to be the world's greatest deliberative body. i realize neither party has been blameless for these tactics. they developed over years and, it seems as if they have continually escalated but
2:01 pm
today's pattern of obstruction, it just isn't normal. it is not what our founders envisioned. a deliberate and determined effort to obstruct everything, no matter what the merits, just to refight the results of an election is not normal, and for the sake of future generations we can't let it become normal. so i support the step a majority of senators today took to change the way that washington is doing business. more specifically the way the senate does business. what a majority of senators determined by senate rule is that they would restore the long-standing tradition of considering judicial, and public service nominations on a more routine basis. and here's why this is important. one of a president's constitutional responsibilities is to nominate americans to positions within the executive and judicial branches. over the six decades before i took office only 20 presidential
2:02 pm
nominees to executive positions had to overcome filibusters. in just under five years since i took office nearly 30 nominees have been treated this way. these are all public servants who protect our national security, look out for working families, keep our air and water clean. this year alone, for the first time in history, senate republicans filibuster ad president's nominee for the secretary of defense who used to be a former republican senator. they tried everything they could to hold up our epa administrator. they blocked our nominee for our top housing regulator at a time when we need more help for more families to afford a home and what has caused mortgage meltdowns from happening again. and in each much these cases it has not been because they opposed the person. that there was some assessment they were unqualified. that there was some scandal that
2:03 pm
had been unearthed. simply because they oppose the policies that the american people voted for in the last election. this obstruction gets even worse when it comes to the judiciary. the constitution charges the president with filling vacancies to the federal bench. every president has exercised this power since george washington, first named justice to the supreme court in 1789 but my judicial nominees have waited nearly 2 1/2 times longer to receive yes or no votes on the senate floor than those of president bush. and the ones who eventually do get a vote generally are confirmed with little, if any dissent. so this isn't obstruction on substance. on qualifications. it is just to gum up the works. this gridlock in congress causes gridlock in much of our criminal and civil justice systems. you have seen judges across the country, including a
2:04 pm
bush-appointed chief justice to the supreme court say these are vital vacancy that is need to be filled. and this gridlock has not served the cause of justice. in fact it has undermined it. over the past three weeks senate republicans again denied a yes or no vote on three highly qualified americans to fill vacancies on the second highest court, even though they have the support of majority of senators. four of president bush's six nominees to this court were confirmed. four out of five of my nominees to this court have been obstructed. so, the vote today is an indication of a ma the jeff senators i believe that enough is enough. the american people's business is far too important to keep falling prey, day after day, to washington politics. i'm a former senator. so is my vice president. we both value any senate's duty
2:05 pm
to advise and consent. it's important and we take that very seriously but a few now refuse to treat that duty of advise and consent with the respect that it deserves. it is no longer used in a responsible way to govern. it is rather used as a reckless and relentless tool to grind all business to a halt. that is not when our founders intended. certainly not what our country needs right now. and, i just want to remind everybody what is at stake here not my ability to fulfill my constitutional duty. what is at stake is the ability of any president to fulfill his or her constitutional duty. public service is not a game. it's a privilege and the consequences of action or inaction are very real. the american people deserve better than politicians who run for election telling them how terrible government is and then devoting their time in elected office trying to make government not work as often as possible.
2:06 pm
now, i want to be clear. the senate has actually done some good bipartisan work this year. bipar sawn majorities -- bipartisan majorities passed common sense legislation to fix the broken immigration system and upgrade our courts, our ports. it passed a farm bill that helps rural communities and vulnerable americans. passed legislation preventing americans being fired based on their sexual orientation. there are republicans and democrats that want to get things done. frankly privately they expressed to me that the system in the senate had broken down and what used to be a sporadic exercise of the filibuster had gotten completely out of hand. i believe, i'm confident, that that spirit will have a little more space now. i want us to make sure that we can do more work together to grow the economy and create jobs. if there are differences in the
2:07 pm
senate, then debate should be had, people should vote their conscience. they should vote on behalf of their constituents. but they should vote. that's what they're there to do. and ultimately, if you got a majority of folks, who believe in something, then it should be able to pass. you know americans work hard. they do their jobs and expect the same from everybody who got sent here. as llng as i have the privilege of being in this office i will keep working as hard as i know how to make sure the economy is growing and we're creating good jobs and we're widening prosperity and opportunity for everybody. i know that that is what the majority of folks in the senate believe as well. but the gears of government have to work. the step that the majority ever senators took today i think will help make those gears work just a little bit better. thanks very much much, everybody. josh will answer all of your questions.
2:08 pm
[all talking at once] the president not taking questions issuing a statement saying enough is enough, saying he supports democrat rules changing rules of prodentialal nominees, accusing republicans of obstruction. he did say both parties are not blameless. peter barnes joining us from capitol hill with more on the story today, peter. >> i'm sure one of the questions president would have got how he changed his position on issue of filibusters, because he opposed changes in filibuster rules when he was member of the united states senate. nonetheless the senate agreed to vote today to end the 60-vote requirement, the filibuster on executive appointments as well as federal judicial nominations, except for the supreme court. the democrats saying that the republicans have been using this to block, just, too many times to create gridlock in the senate
2:09 pm
over these kind of appointments. the figure that they cited was that of 168 filibusters of these types of appointments over the last 230 years, half of them have occurred during the obama administration just in the last four 1/2 years. about 80 of them. but republicans say this just weakens checks and balance that is were created by the founders in the constitution with senate's role to advise and consent on nominations and that the, that democrats were really just trying to change the discussion in washington from obamacare to something else. guys, back to you. ashley: peter barnes, thank you so much. in fact the president is saying the logjam affecting everything from gun control to immigration and economy and so on and so on. cheryl: we'll see if mcconnell decides to try to visit this issue once again and i have a feeling will -- this vote. ashley: yeah. cheryl: happening in washington there are reports right now that
2:10 pm
are suggesting that obamacare contains a marriage penalty. would you consider living in sin to save money on insurance, not get married? you can tweet us. your answer will be at the bottom of the screen as we go through the hour of "markets now." on the story let's bring in rich edson. he is in washington. you've been looking at obamacare site and seems every day we get a new revelation about the law. now it seems it is better to stay single, is that correct? >> another marriage penalty. less in government subsidies for buying health care. single americans earning more than $45,960 a year are ineligible for health insurance subsidies. those earning less, are. married couple earning more than $62,040 a year makes too much for subsidies. if they are living together earned more than $90,000 a year combined, receive subsidy. some conservatives say this is unfair.
2:11 pm
others say this structure doesn't make sense. >> i don't think there is any reason to believe somebody was trying to discourage marriage. the common sense axiom, two people married can live together more cheaply than two people living together separately. >> problem with the website, low enrollments and millions losing insurance easily overshadow the obamacare marriage penalty. back to you. cheryl: losing those plans. rich, thank you. from planes to cars, the government selling its remaining stake in general motors but you don't believe how much it will cost you, the taxpayer. liz macdonald with that story for us. ashley: emac is all over it. in our tech minute, you have got to see this. smart glasses that ensure nurses and doctors find your vein every time. my mantra? family first.
2:12 pm
2:13 pm
but with less energy, moodiness, and a low sex drive, i saw my doctor. a blood test showed it was low testosterone, not age. we talked about axiron. the only underarm low t treatment that canestore t levels to rmal in about 2 weeks in most men. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than8 or men with prostate or breast caer. and children should avoido are contact where axon is applied as unexpected signs of puber in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these symptoms to your doctor. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medication serious side effects could include increased risk decreased sperm count; ankle, feet or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while eeping; and blood clots in the legs. common side effects include skin redss or irritation where applied, increased red blood cell count, headache, diarrhea, vomiting and increase in psa.
2:14 pm
ask your doctor about axiron. cheryl: quarter past the hour. nicole petallides on floor of the new york stock exchange. and you're watching a big story today, that is tesla. nicole. >> tesla, a little feather in the cap for elon musk today at least. he has had a tough run with public relations issues of late. the stock is up half a percent
2:15 pm
at 121.82. it was at nearly $200 not long ago and down 20% this month. that due to nearly two fires in a week on model s. "consumer reports", they got 99 out of 100 and nearly perfect score but doesn't take into account of fires. i was reading something from mit technology says that elon musk's defense of the tesla and comparisons to regular vehicles are actually like comparing apples to oranges and don't really hold much merit. back to you. >> nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. we're getting more breaking news into fox business. we want to show you live pictures. this is the boeing jet that mistakenly. mistakenly actually landed at the wrong airport. this happened earlier this morning. the jet is taking off successfully. boeing engineers had to come in, and tow the plane, had to tow the plane to turn it around, with short run story.
2:16 pm
they stand to lose $12 billion on the investment of gm shares. initially bailout is 49.5 billion. the u.s. government gotten back 38 1/2 billion. if gm shares hold what they're trading at because the treasury is moving to unload the remaining 2 1/2% stake, possible losses of $12 billion. to break even, gm shares have to be trading triple what they're trading at right now. we're looking potential losses on the part of the treasury department stake in gm. ashley: now, there is an interesting angle to this of course. one of the reasons for the bailout was it would be disasterous for the economy and all jobs would be lost, right? >> yeah. ashley: seen as something that could not be allowed to sink. >> that's right, ashley and cheryl. so the issue is, you're right, the treasury is saying hey, we saved jobs in the u.s. we saved productivity and economic growth bailing out gm the question is, well if gm is building a lot of plants in china to turn its, for
2:17 pm
example cadillac plant. but those plants in china, not just to get close toward markets there but to turn those hubs, those gm hubs into exporting hubs for gm into that region. he is cars not coming out of the u.s. coming out. gm cars coming out of china. that is a debate too. you will see a lost spin about this out of the government about this by year-end, as treasury slowly unloads its shares. the thing is, yeah, we made money on aig, 23 billion. you know what will else the government's stake in aig making money there, federal reserves money printing. ashley: qe. >> helped float the shares higher. those are the angles to watch as this debate unfolds. we'll stay on top of the story. ashley: all over it as usual. elizabeth macdonald. thanks so much very much. appreciate it. >> sure. cheryl: statistics out on growing numbers of flight delays. ashley: back to planes. cheryl: you're a frequent business traveler you can not afford to miss this story. that is coming up. ashley: that is if you're not

2:22 pm
this is your fox news minute. kennedy cousin michael skakel has been granted bail while prosecutors in connecticut appeal a ruling that gives him a new trial in the 1975 murder of martha moxley. skakel was granted bail after a bond hearing in stamford. he was serving a sentence of 20 years to life. the judge in the colorado theater shootings case indefinitely postponed the trial of the suspect. the move will give attorneys time to argue whether james holmes should undergo another psychiatric valuation. he pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity. he accused of killing 12 and injuring 70 at a shooting at the theater. alex rodriguez says he doesn't have a chance of winning appeal of his 211-game suspension. he washinged out of a grief rans hearing after the arbitrator refused to make commissioner bull selig testify.
2:23 pm
a-rod called it abusive process to insure the player fails. those are the news headlines on the fox business network. send it back to cheryl. cheryl: a-rod has a temper. shocker. >> apparently yesterday. cheryl: thanks, jamie. vonage is entering the mid to small bismarckket in a 130 million-dollar deal. the broadband phone provider acquires a broad band over ininternet company. what does it mean for the company as a whole. the cfo is here. 130 million-dollar deal, most which is in cash today. that is credit to the balance sheet of the company. the stock is up over 60% for the past year. will we see more acquisition from the company do you think. >> we're pleased by this acquisition. first three days in business together we more than doubled sales through the first couple days of business. this is transformational deal for us. it moves us into a completely new segment. the small and medium bismarckket
2:24 pm
is growing rapidly. it is a 15 billion-dollar market. most folks don't realize that 50% of americans work in small businesses which are companies of 500 employees or less. this is the cloud-based technology, that allows us to provide lower cost phone services with more features, for the small and medium business that is can't afford i.t. staff. cheryl: consumers are moving away from landlines, et cetera. everything is going cloud and data. that process is bit slower for small and medium-sized businesses. how are they incorporating the technology with the loss of technology? >> small and medium-sized businesses communications is the real heartbeat for their business. that is critical infrastructure. they tend to be a little guard in willingness to move. cheryl: takes some time? >> it does. broadband networks matured. we see greater feature sets that allow small businesses to run their businesses more effectively to help sales and customer service teams be more productive. as a result of that, we're
2:25 pm
seeing that move. for vonnage, we're still in early days. only 15% of small and medium-sized businesses moved to cloud-based solutions. that will grow 20 to 30% over next five years. >> is there a particular sector of businesses seeing do this? if i go to the at&t store, by the way a company i used to work with, everything will go to mobile. apple started this. steve jobs, somebody else you worked with in your past. you're finding that there is a certain type of business that is actually benefiting from this technology? that could be expansion for you? >> we're seeing pretty broad scale. there is no specific vertical. a lot of professional services. we are focused very much on the 20 employees and below, two third of all of small businesses. and that market is, the one that is moving most quickly. cheryl: i do want to say you met with the new fcc chairman yesterday. >> i did. cheryl: someone you've known for many years. >> through the wireless industry, chairman wheeler, did address a group of other executives as part of an
2:26 pm
advisory council on national security communications issues. and talked a little bit about his agenda and the move to ip as a technology from the traditional pstn. they expounded a little bit on trials where he made public comments last week about what his strategy was. vonnage is supportive of that move. we've been leading charge for many years. cheryl: do you think overall the spectrum fights we had under the fcc between all different carriers last few years? are we moving past that in the sector? >> i think there will be continued to be spectrum, very valuable asset. with the use of mobile services, i think that we'll continuee trr freeing up of spectrum and putting it to best possible use. cheryl: mark, thank you very much. congratulations on the deal. next acquisition, feel free to come back to fox business exclusively. >> i appreciate it. cheryl: mark, thank you very much. ashley, over to you. ashley: we can hold him to that. thanks very much, guys. 10 bucks a month for all the
