11:00 am
romantic. >> happy for you. >> congratulations, see you later. that will do a force on opening bell, stuart varney, "varney and company". stuart: good morning the you heard this before, technology rules and climate change will kill you, news on both fronts today, microsoft desperately wants to the king of the elegant, the new top guy says microsoft will build the next big thing. maybe google already has. a functioning still driving car makes its debut. we will show you. climate change the epa is killing cold to save the planet and now we know the cost, tens of billions of dollars. the epa is saving the planet one of plants at a time. your kitchen stove and the ever reliable prince charles says this, capitalism has to change to save us from global warming. "varney and company" is about to begin.
11:01 am
stuart: we will love to tell you there's action on the markets but there is not. the dow just coming off of its lows of the day down 27. another record for the s&p 500, a much broader market indicator. record earlier this morning 1909. here is the key interest rate lot of people follow closely. is that right? 2.43%? lowest since july. that is a big deal, that is a slump in interest rates to 2.43%. i got to check that, make sure that is right. now we have profit at michael course jumping 60%, big shrug, down $0.08 at $95 a share.
11:02 am
3d printermaker 3d systems lower. at an honest the secondary stock offering, some more stock to the public down 10%. charles payne, got to look at 3d stocks, went straight up like dot.coms and straight down, is this the bottom around here? no. charles: stop the call but you have different strategies, more of a manufacturing plant, 3d systems loading up and making a lot of acquisitions. it is smart use of their money but schering investors, 31% is short too so any time shows weakness, there pounding away. stuart: check the share price of microsoft as we told you earlier, they announced a new translation feature for skype, speak to anyone around the world and skype will translate the conversation in real time. if i were speaking english and someone was speaking french we could hear each other real time
11:03 am
across skype so they say. veronica dagger from the wall street journal is here. did i describe that correctly? i am speaking in new york, someone is in paris, and is a direct conversation? >> that is right. there's a delay for the translation but from what we know it is the really interesting idea. especially for business to business use. i could see a market for this. stuart: microsoft owns skype, now they have this translation software. you can put this to all kinds of different devices. >> that is what is important because mobil is so big. if you put this on your mobile phone, use this on your mobile phones that would be huge. the consumer to consumer aspect i wonder how much people would be calling someone from another country but perhaps they would. stuart: i have grandchildren in new zealand, one of their birthdays is coming up, you need
11:04 am
a translator. broad new zealand's, you can barely understand a word. microsoft also says it is working on building the next big thing, building it in the post pc era, build the next big thing. >> we don't know what the big fame is, that is the billion dollar question but this is interesting. he is trying to put his mark on the company. he has been there for four months, a different type of ceo, this guy is out there, more accessible to the press, is more interested in innovating and building from within which is a shift from what we see from other tech companies, other tech companies are acquisition hungry. microsoft is trying to enter the nokia device integration, 30,000 employees, $7 billion something
11:05 am
acquisition, trying to process and make that part of their company so perhaps that is one of the reasons to build, he has to deal with nokia. stuart: has this guy got it? charles: out the gate got it, the charisma, to say they're opposed pc world is a revelation. a company that is so pc centric for so long, that is the admissions deans you credibility when you go out and talk about other things in the future. right now he is exciting. stuart: he did an interview at the code conference where he came out with we are going to build the next big thing and he shocked bill gates into the sideline. what role does he play? and not much. kind of out of the picture. we will see how this guy does but you are right, out of the gate he got the stock to $40 a share. charles: you cannot underestimate what a celebrity ceo can buy a company time. hewlett-packard had a giant
11:06 am
missed last week, stocks should have been down 20%. was down about 9% in the pre-market, all of a sudden been meg whitman turned on the charm and stock ended up on friday, the biggest mover in the s&p. it had been the worst loser, it was the biggest winner. stuart: when your judgment is he has got it? >> he understands mobile, the cloud, that is will be looking at. stuart: i am a microsoft stockholder. let's get to netflix, doing more content for kids. come on. is that important? nicole: i think it is and analysts agree, they talk about the younger demographic, and the long term and netflix continues to grow. dreamworks working closely with sony to make a deal, sony had a deal through 2021 with stars, however stars and sony agreed the kids' section is basically settled down and netflix is moving in on this one so that
11:07 am
would include cloudy with a chance of meatballs, smurfs 2 and we are seeing stock right now pretty much flat at the moment but the big picture is the kids are in the play for the future. stuart: they dominate the screen telling you what to watch and that is important for netflix. thank you, the dow down 24 points. this is real slow trading for whatever reason, very slow trading, there isn't that much price movement. sony breaking into china's video game market. for years the game consoles have been banned in china but now sony will be allowed to sell the play station, that may be as serious potential. by some estimates china's video game industry could generate $10 billion in sales next year. some estimates. here is patrick more, ceo of game studio, the former marketing director of google
11:08 am
play. welcome to the program. the chinese left in the consoles but then they are going to counterfeit the games and i don't see that -- seriously. this huge problem i don't see $10 billion worth of sales in that kind of environment, do you? >> will be a real challenge. if you look at chinese video game market is definitely huge and booming, statistics are staggering. if you look at the pc side of a market where gamers' spend their time you have 115 million people playing games on their pcs of which 30 million are classified as core gamers or people who play at least 2 to 5 hours a week so getting people to get to the pc mentality to a consul is going to be a challenge. stuart: i have a headline in the wall street journal today that says in china messageing apps face a crackdown and what we are looking at on the screen right
11:09 am
now is a new and popular video game called watch dogs. i am interested in the idea of china censoring what video games, what content is allowed on these consul's that they are allowing into china. this watchdog game is about hacker who rebels against a totalitarian state. china will let that in? >> that remains to be seen. chinese policy when it comes to regulating video games is tighter than many markets around world. typically a game like that in this case from the montreal studio, and different ministries in china. that process can drag on over half a year, there's always a possibility they come back and request changes for the game to be distributed legally in the market or that they out right don't allow that. that is one of the things you don't know when dealing with the
11:10 am
chinese game market. stuart: a level playing field, not sure i see 10 million, that is another story and i got to run this by you. google showing off its new self driving car. the amazing thing is it has no steering wheel, no breaks, you used to work for google, a high position with google. i just can't see that thing we are looking at making it past the lawyers in america, can you? >> a lot of things don't make their way past lawyers in america but you have to keep in mind that google is very forward thinking and have a long-term game plan and like google glass or many other products google has launched including and would this is simply one step along process and definitely not the product they will release to market. these things will evolve over time and the car that goes commercially to market for the next three four five years will look different from what we see
11:11 am
today. stuart: i firmly believe that that kind of thing is in the future, maybe not looking like that or behaving like that but this is obviously coming. just not sure any where near there yet given america's legalistic environment. >> it is a work in progress. stuart: video sales of ritter and how about that? >> sorry to be so negative today. that is the way it is. stuart: summer is here and the sun is shining, we will be positive soon. >> could have said this segment brought to by the sun dial corporation. stuart: patrick moore, see you soon. curious about a stock? a lot of you are. we asked if you would tweet us and say hash tag ask charles payne, what about this stuff? he has been asked about biotech seed company. stuart: so innovative with seeds. this is a stock we had for a
11:12 am
long time and it is accused winner now but a giant loser for a long time. talk about a stealth rally, the stock no one talked about but recently the street jump on it, just 12 months ago only 9 on the street, just set a record on revenue and gross profits, vegetable seed the doing very well and they're starting to feel little better about diamonds, the question was should i sell here? so obviously low viewer owns it. i will wait for it. the bigger picture, people around the world are getting richer, there are more of the man they change their eating habits and they want this stuff. forget the fear is about cmos seeds and fats of. i can see how they can go wrong. of 25 is in my 30s or 40s and putting money in the 401(k), absolutely, definitely. up next another example of big government bureaucracy. amani wyoming being threatened

11:14 am
11:15 am
11:16 am
? stuart: i'm going to call this pretty much a dead flat market, down 20 points in the volume is extremely light. how about the price of gold? sitting around 1253 it we have lost about $50 in 10 days. do you remember those gold coins? a california couple of them in the on sale onle and it sold for $15000. these coins date from 1847-1894 and the total
11:17 am
value is $11 million. i had forgotten whether or not the couple gets to keep the money. i'm sure the text i will take his piece, but i can't remember whether the couple gets the money or not. profit more than doubled for toll brothers and doubling in profits me they 43 that gain. charles will make us the money. he says it's with vmware. charlie: technology play. it's the stuff we were talking about and it's been coming down-- i'm not sure why it's coming down except that technology stocks in general have come down. what i'm intrigued by 23 insider purchases for 2.8 million shares. i don't see that very often with insiders loading up on their own stock. this is a name that comes in and out of the rumor mill all the time. i like the price and i think
11:18 am
you can't pinpoint when it will make a turn, but i think it's starting to a keenly. stuart: i think insider stocks on lineup and loading up here in i have a case for you, government gone wild. andy johnson built a pond on his property, with through the proper channels and got a permit from the state engineer's office, but incomes the federal government, the epa, he says johnson's pond violates the clean water act and he has to get rid of it. they threatened him with a spine study $5000 a day until he removes it. he is with us now. andy, you go through all the process with the state and they say okay. you build the pond, at what point did the feds come in and say you can't do that? >> well, it was approximately about a year later. we thought everything was fine. we have a paper from the state engineer's office saying we are in good standing with the state and upon his exercise as
11:19 am
permitted and then here comes the epa. stuart: you are an ordinary regular land owner and you wanted to build up pond and stock it with fish and incomes the federal government says you can't. i think-- take it you are lawyered up to read what if the lawyers done for you? >> we have an army of attorneys working for us. we have had experts flown in from all across the country to look at this. everyone has been on my side and been extremely helpful. we have an expert report that we just sent to the epa, in 18 pages document same white we are exempt from these federal regulations. stuart: in what we do the feds say you are breaking the clean water act? >> basically what it amounts to is that i didn't get their permission before i did this project. they are not saying i couldn't have done it i just didn't have any knowledge of this agency before nor did my state.
11:20 am
stuart: why didn't the state say i mean if you have a permit from the state engineer, wouldn't he have said or she wouldn't they have said mr. johnson, you have to get a permit from the feds as well. they didn't say that to you? >> no sir, not at any one time. really no one in wyoming deals with this federal permit they are telling me i needed. i went to the county and the state. i have had meetings with everyone and no one ever told me i needed a 404 permit. we found out about a year later after our project was completed. stuart: they have threatened you with a fine of $75000 a day unless-- until you get rid of the pond. have you had to pay that yet? have you had to pay anything? >> i have been very clear that i am not to going to pay their fines. i am not going to tear up my pond. it's all a threat at this point to read they are threatening me simile--
11:21 am
criminally, statutory it's actually $187,000 a day is what the fine amounts to read it's ridiculous. stuart: when will this be resolved? you have this massive fine you are facing and you say you will not do anything in the feds are digging in their heels, give me an endgame here? what happens québec i wish i could tell you. the way this agency works is it takes forever to get an answer to get anything done. so, i wish it could be over tomorrow. i wish we could resolve this, but your guess is as good as mine. stuart: one of the big themes on this show is the difficulty of working through barack were see, government bureaucracy in particular. i thank you are a perfect example of this and we thank you for sharing your experience and coming on the show today. good luck, mr. johnson. i wish you the very best of luck. thank you. up next, facebook and twitter about the man who sails around the world a

12:04 pm
>> energize the global effort to combat climate change. a creeping national security crisis that will help shape your time in uniform as we are called on and natural disasters and conflicts over water and food which is why next year i intend to make sure america is in front put together a global framework. stuart: senior energy reporter, the author of the book boom. you heard that number from the chamber of commerce. $51 billion per year all the way through 200030, the cost of the president's war on coal. does that ring true to you? >> i am a little puzzled because when the wall street journal, a colleague of mine broke the news we didn't have exactly all the details, we didn't know how much of a reduction power plants
12:05 pm
would have been caught and emissions. this is what it is going to cost the economy. stuart: our report from rich edson is there is an annual reduction of 1.8% in america's co2 emissions, if you are down 4.8% at a cost of $51 billion a year you put that equations together and tell me if it is worth it. >> 120% is a very small reduction. there were a lot of concerns the reduction would have been much closer to 7% or 8%. given the flexibility the federal government says it is going to give, cap and trade type program, i would really have to look hard at how you arrive at $50 billion given we have so much in expensive natural gas in the country. stuart: i was in mississippi not long ago where i think they have
12:06 pm
the first clean coal energy producing plant. is there such a thing as clean coal? >> i might get in trouble for saying this with the coal lobby but no. there really is no such thing as clean coal. there is an idea out there but in terms of practical application of anything close to costs that we would be willing to pay clean coal doesn't exist. "imus in the morning" when your position is we should go out and fracking for natural gas which we have, replace coal, replace oil and lower co2 emissions on that basis. that is your position. >> that is what has been going on the last few years. as a reporter, covering how there is so much natural gas and fracking activity, that has more electricity generated from natural gas and less from cold that has been happening, we lowered our combinations in the united states, something very few other countries have been able to do. stuart: why doesn't the president throw his weight behind fracking?
12:07 pm
get out there, get the natural gas, why doesn't he do that? >> there's a lot of political pressure right now against fracking. if you thought keystone was a political hot potato the fracking is right behind it. it doesn't strike me as a winning hand to do that. stuart: the other side of the colon is if you told the american public this is how we're going to combat climate change and we will be successful using our own natural gas isn't that a political winner? >> it would be accepted in order to do that you have to drill a lot of wealth, literally in people's communities and that is robbing a lot of communities wrong and that is where you get lousy opposition. another gap, we reduce carbon emissions and combat global warming or climate change but in order to do that you talking trucks and rigs and drilling in people's backyards and that is where the opposition is coming

from. stuart: the debate continues. let's go back to the market with tres knippa in chicago. this was a real shock to me when i first saw this, the yield on the ten year treasury, 2.44%. what is going on here? >> compare to bond yields throughout the world, our bond yields are reasonably high. we talked on many occasions how i think the largest bobble in all the market is the global bond market. where are investors going to go? japanese government bonds yield 4.5%? look at the yield on the german bond, even rates in spain and italy, i wouldn't lend spain or italy any money of my life depended on it but rates are reasonably low. this factors into the bowl situation. goldman is are in a pickle, one owning gold means. you sure the dollar and have
12:09 pm
yields in the treasury this turns into an asset allocation game. i can holds is gold or yielding instruments of the u.s. treasury so in my mind, our ten year being where it is is putting pressure on gold. your previous guests talking about energy. you know one thing that is dollar supported in the long term? what if we did turn into the saudi arabia of natural gas? that would be dollar supportive. we got it. stuart: who said the yield on the treasury would be well below 2.5%? i don't know anyone saying that except you. >> who would have said that in the framework of the fed cutting back their treasury purchases. an important part. stuart: a shocker to me. thanks very much for joining us on a very important subject. look at the stock price of apple, please, expected to launch a new feature that would

things but not sure i have got to grips with what it is about. when you tell me i can use my iphone to dim the lights, dim the lights and the lights are dimmed at home i tend to think so what? what am i going to dim the lights with my iphone? >> it is a powerful thing, bringing the internet into our everyday lives. ui watching tv at night and you geur tv that says the front door is in the open or in the refrigerator and looking at your grocery lists you could send a message to your spouse's phone so it is kind of bringing everything connected to get there. stuart: you are 40 years younger than i am at least. therefore you get this and you are prepared to say yes, i am going to do this.
12:12 pm

manufacturers because right now the tablet if you are an apps developer you have to go through their process. a lot of companies now you might have one type of thermostat and another fridge and another washing machine and for the internet of things to kickoff everybody has to work together on the same network and apple isn't used to playing the with these and they are going to have to -- they probably want to make it their own ecosystem but in order for it -- it would take a while but for it to really expand, by next week apple is supposed to be launching something so we might see it a little earlier than we think. stuart: we get it. thanks very much. all wealthy man in san francisco anonymously hiding $100 bills around the city because of his doubt about being rich. dr. keith ablow is up next
