11:02 am
year but the numbers might have been higher had it not been for the fiscal battles in washington making people cautious. america and the national association polk 1,000 consumers for their annual holiday shopping survey, 13% of respondents plan to increase holiday spending this season compared to a 12% rise last year, 32% of those polled planned to spend less this year and that is an improvement of 38% who said that last year. and note that the increase in the percentage of people who plan to increase spending grew at a slower pace than a year before in the survey suggests a washington flights over spending and the debt ceiling with 51% of those polled saying the fight had affected their holiday spending plans. >> the responses to the question
11:03 am
about the budget battles suggest this created or increased economic insecurity by some americans, economic insecurity tends to depress consumer spending. >> the group's forecast holiday spending overall will rise 3.5% to 4% this season. same forecast as last year. connell: black friday and cybermonday deals are not only for its tvs and tablets and whacked off but the travel industry wants a piece of the action too. dagen: with more on the travel deals we are joined by the host of the travel channel hotel. good to see you. same thing with retail. travel deals that you will find out there, are they really deals? are you getting a bargain? >> their deals and what happens is it allows the hotel industry
11:04 am
to take a breath and realize after the holidays things slow down. typically january, february, march. you are getting great deal. four or five years ago the brands started to look at this to see if we could take part in it and it has been unbelievable. it went to one or two motels doing it, now everyone is doing it. connell: europeans love to come here and get a good exchange rate and do some shopping. they get a good deal in new york. any reason for us to leave here and travel somewhere else and go shopping, seems ridiculous. >> not so much to go shopping on black friday. really to shop online for traveling january, february or march, good way to fill of rooms. dagen: where do you get the best deals? are we talking about destination vacations like in the island cruises, miami, hawaii.
11:05 am
where do you find the best travel deals, at hotels and all in packages? >> there are great deals and travel agents doing great deals in mexico, the caribbean, new york, the benjamin hotel offering 1993 january, february or march. dagen: and lexington. >> whether people are willing to spend and what have you to economic trends, getting a little better and still very careful how they're spending money. >> people are careful land they are not looking for the amenities, not looking for bigger swedes. looking for valu. really looking to be taken care of. i am sure you travel a lot. you want a clean room, friendly service, nice comfortable bed.
11:06 am
dagen: are they -- hotels more attuned to that? in terms of -- the overall business is a little soft in terms of hotel and travel industry. >> depends on where you are in the market. it is soft and that is why black friday and cybermonday are a great way to get better deals out there. not all lee shop presents for someone else but for yourself saying your family is on vacation. dagen: do you really buying a vacation? my relatives are finicky and picky. you by the medication they won't go on it. you got to hold their hand and go with them. i don't want to be bothered with that. just wouldn't go, did you ever take that trip to miami that i bought you and it is three years later. >> take it yourself. there are a lot of values.
11:07 am
they may have seen 30% or 40% increase on travel and 30% off, hotels around the country doing it. it is a great time to buy travel. connell: people travel here, can do a lot of shopping in doors. dagen: the trump hotels, they are really beautiful hotels. thank you. please come back. stocks looking to extend record-breaking runs but energy stocks are taking a hit, nicole petallides on the floor of thh stock exchange. nicole: good morning, we have had a great run seven weeks 0, records again this week, even the nasdaq breaking its own record from yesterday, the dow jones industrials up 25 points, 0.1%. the nasdaq up 1/2%, the s&p 500 gaining 1/4 of 1%, the vix to
11:08 am
the downside, light volume could bring volatility on this holiday, hewlett-packard has been on the turnaround plan, came out with great numbers and we're watching 7-1/4%, $26.91. connell: the store you need to watch is interest rates. we have been talking about it this week. charlie is the vice chairman of research, always good to have you. thank you for coming gone. all these conversations about bubbles, what if rates go up, the ten year above 3%, big trouble in the stock market. what is your take on this in terms of what interest rate, what direction we will go and what it will do to the stock market? >> we will take a long-term perspective and say interest rates are one of the big threats out there. i don't know if you have the
11:09 am
long-term graft but if you look at 35 or 40 years we had interest rates go up pretty much straight up from 64 until 1981. during that time the stock market, bonds went from 4% to 14% and the stock market went absolutely nowhere. it was that 800 at the beginning of that time period, still at 800, 17 years later. connell: sorry to interrupt. let's bring that up for a second. there were lines going up and down with these long-term look at rates and those lines going up and down vertically indicate a period when the economy was in recession so that is the relationship between where those rates are and where the economy is going. what about now? >> what happens since 1981, the dow has gone from a hundred to sixteen thousand and we would
11:10 am
argue a lot of that increase is because of the decline in interest rates. interest rates went from 14% on the ten year to 70 where we are today. that has a huge impact on the value of a stock. interest rate is the rate you will bring back future earnings to the present and if interest rates drop as they have over this time period stocks are worth more. it is a significant risk because interest rates will go up maybe not next month, up to 4%, that is a major head wind for the stock market. connell: as i said, dr. fabre was talking 3%, if you go to 3% on the interest rate, what is the big head wind? are you worried about a huge pool back from the crash, bubble bursting or something different? >> we want to be careful and say nobody including the store warren buffett will predict what will happen in the short term in the stock market but what we can
11:11 am
say is on the theoretically valuation basis if you get 100 basis point increase in interest rates, 1% reduces the value of stocks by 10% to 15%. the stock market could survive that and go through it if there are positive earnings but that is the head wind we are talking about. connell: one more question. last time you were wrong, here is charlie thinking about -- to change the subject, thinking about energy stocks, we did the whole segment. now that you are back what about the energy stocks? >> we do think it is one of a few areas in the stock market that really is cheap. names like exxon trading at 10 to 11 times earnings and a stock market that is 15 times earnings. we think the u.s. and exxon and u.s. energy companies are well-positioned, spectacularly cheap natural gas reserves. we will export natural gas which will become for the next 30 years what oil and petroleum have been for the past 30 years
11:12 am
and the u.s. is the saudi arabia of natural gas. connell: there are the plays on the screen to think about. thank you very much, happy thanksgiving. dagen: high-tech where for your head, this is a good idea. do you know connell mcshane wears a wig? connell: different one every day. i will change it during the break. big test for online retailers. full force looking to scam some would-be shoppers. we will tell you what to look out for. dagen: latest on this nasty weather that is basically stopping the east coast. and mario molina is standing by with the forecast. ♪
