tv After the Bell FOX Business June 9, 2014 4:00pm-5:01pm EDT
[closing bell ringing] liz: as bells slows it down on wall street. let's look to see how stocks finished up. what kind of records can we give you today? we give you dow jones industrials to the up side. 11-point gain. s&p, we give you a record. move to the upside. grant ad point and 2/3. nasdaq looking good. not a record but up 14 points. russell surprised everybody. transports, we give you ladies and gentlemen, a record. "after the bell" starts right now. liz: clearly adam shapiro day as we got three records. adam: i will take that compliment. liz: jason pride, glenmede director of strategy. he is advising investors not to get too aggressive in the
market. michael wall, wall financial group. he sees starting a sideways trend to the markets. mark second shun in the pits of the cm-e. we begin with mark. what drove it? was it merger monday? any lack of negative headlines here? >> you know the path of least resistance is up. there is no catalyst to send the market lower. so until we see some sort of a catalyst, if the, if the choice is up or down, it always will be up. that is just kind of the tenure of the market right now. you know, i want to make some comment, there has been talk in the media about market complacency and low vix and everything going on. talk how much the s&p 500 actually is moving right now. if you look at the last 20 trading days, the s&p 500 is moving at rate, call it 6 1/2 to 7%. when you look at vix, it is over 11%, that is a nice insurance hike up in options right now. so, when i look where the vix is
pricing, how s&p is moving i think you will see this slow grind up continue. potentially through the 4th of july. who knows, maybe through the whole summer. adam: mark, pick up something you said. i want to go to jason, he says don't worry about complacency. weir seeing real estate investors come in and small caps making a run. is there complacency or is there still a lot of room to go up? >> we think there is some room to go up. like draghi said we are not finished yet or not finished here. valuations are hovering around fair value, maybe a little bit higher. the economy is still growing. the central banks are still being stimulative. we haven't reached a peak market valuations. unless there is cattist that comes about to bring the market back in line -- catalyst. or down to lower levels, this market is more likely to defined e ground higher than it is to
falter at this point in time. having said that we're arguing that clients need to be constructive but not aggressive. don't need to chase high-flyers. don't need to stretch out for small cap companies to a large deprein the portfolio. when you need to do is look for a lot of singles and doubles. expect the market to just kind of inch forward higher and rely on your companies to generate that excess growth and valuation s to dredge higher. liz: jason you say it will inch higher. michael, i believe what you're saying what we'll see is sideways market. those can be extremely frustrating and force investors to make bad decisions. how should investors right now avoid doing that? >> first off, good to see you, liz and adam. as far as sideways i think the next couple weeks we'll be looking for that. but i think one of the things that the other gentleman mentioned which i agree with.
we want to look for things that give us opportunity to have a pay to play strategy. we're collecting nice yield, nice dividend on our investment. good, solid companies. that will help them weather the storm. regardless what happens. it is like a toll-taker, regardless what happens, somebody drives on a highway they're collecting a to, doesn't matter one car, 100 cars, as long as cars are on the highway. same thing like stocks. we look for things like that. adam: use car analogy, will you go for blue chip like cadillac or chevrolet, maybe cobalt? you go for small cap? looking for yields in a small kaupe stock? what do you think would be best? >> there is variety of plays. that is a great question. first and foremost you have to look at the company. what do the numbers look like in particular. i don't like the idea of flat-out sectoring saying okay we'll look at this and look at that. if you look at companies you want to own, want to stay, a
good track record, good cash flow, good revenue, those are all good things to look at. liz: give us some names. people are dying to hear what you put into that parameter. >> sorry. i really like kinder morgan. that would be one of the tool takers. they are paying a little over 7%. i think there is growth for energy in the future. that is a play. i like coty. i look at coty, compass diversified holdings, almost as a miniature berkshire hathaway of the not the same. similar philosophy. also yield on that is little high. over 8%. they're paying out nice dividend for folks that weather the storm. one thing i would say this. the balloon will not rise forever. people when they are purchasing in, if they want to make sure they're protecting themselves, investors, most of our clients are in the financial red zone and they want to protect their assets. i like idea making sure you look for out and putting stops in and raising stops as value if you do
not stay in place forever. adam: michael, hold there before we get into protection. jason, you like abbott labs. i'm curious. is it too late to get in on that? with all the pharmaceutical mergers, will they be shopping? perhaps i look for a smaller valued company? >> you can play the full spectrum here. reality is where i have a differing opinion from other guests, we are going for dividends and we're going for growth but at this point in time our recommendation how low rates in fixed income, you might be a little overweight in equities but while doing that be in defensive position in equities. that is why we end up on health care like abbott labs and other companies like it. across that sector and across stable value and stable growth sectors, what you can do, you can pick up reasonable valuation, you can get high profit margins. companies that turn around to reinvest the capital to grow the business, whether in a 2%, 1%, or 4% growth environment. they are going to clock out
pretty decent earnings growth and deliver that dividend and the dividend growth to you over time. that is the way you want to be positioned in this environment. liz: mark, we can talk all day long, whether you go into names with this kind of yield or names with this kind of opportunity. where are the flows you're currently seeing? when you stand on the floor in chicago, what are people buying? what are people selling? you. >> got to look at russell two thou. there is where all the action beens late two months. russell 2000 led the selloff we had in back in april. the russell 2000 has been trailing. we see s&p getting toward the all-time high. just as i'm starting to think maybe it gets tired, what happens? the russell 2000 starts exploding higher. why i think there is a little to this rally and s&p. as long as russell continues to move. we continue to see all the momentum money pushing around the rut i think market will move higher. watch the russell 2000. it has been industry leader. it has been the trading leader
for the last six months. i don't see any change why it would right now that is the index to watch. adam: michael, let me bring up what mark said about the russell 2000. it has been the leader it has been lacking leadership. a day late and a dollar short? >> i mean it certainly could be. again the big thing for investors in general is to make sure whenever they're buying in, nothing wrong with buying into that, okay, i think there is more push to the future, i really believe we'll see as the other gentleman mentioned we'll see more growth going up until something actually bursts the balloon. to buy in you have to evaluate how much of your portfolio is going anywhere. when you put your money there, what are you doing with the other pieces of your pie as well. so i don't think there is anything wrong with playing, say a piece of that for your pie for sure. liz: good to see all of you. jason pride, mike wall wall. mark sebastian. mark, we'll see you in a few
minutes when s&p futures close. when it comes to being best she has a number of titles under her belt. we're talking to one of "barron's" top 100 women financial advisors. she has been number one and number two for the last two years. what she is suggesting now. susan kaplan of kaplan financial services, in a "first on fox business" interview. >> the case of pay or play. it could change face of college sports as we know it. what is at stake? we have details next. liz: one real estate firm is using themed open houses to promote its property. hiring real actresses? would a frozen out apartment warm up the sale? that's right. they did a disney's "frozen" theme. we'll talk to the agent with the new approach. see if it is helping get people in the. adam: don't do amityville

liz: time, inc. ended lower on its first day of trading follow from the split from parent company time warner. >> we'll head back to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. what have you got for us? >> it was the publisher's first day of trading as "time," was the ticker symbol. we had ceo this morning on "opening bell" with maria bartiromo. he said how this will be great for the company and talk up so much that the stock ended up down 3/4 of 1%. this is big deal. time, inc., under their umbrella would be "people," fortune, "time" magazine and "sports illustrated" and bevy of other titles but "time" has seen revenue declining there is obviously upward hill for this company overall but joe ripp came on and sounded quite convincing for the path for the
company. digital and the like. trying to keep up with the challenging environment, right? challenging environment of publishing no less and doing it digitally as well. liz: print is tough right now. >> it sure is. liz: nicole, thank you very much. adam: s&p futures are closing. we want to head back to mark sebastian in the pits of cme. mark. >> futures mostly unchanged into the close. not a lot happening. in a slow grinding market like this, the key to kind of trading is, really having, having patience with your winners and having aggressive, aggressive stop orders to get you out of the ones that are really losing. that is how you manage a slow-moving market like this. otherwise copiness will take a trader apart. liz: that, you know what? we need to actually, mark, to do a whole segment on putting in aggressive stop-loss orders. something tells smart people this market could change on a dime, right?
that could help people. >> people are calling for a 10% correction over a year. liz: if you have stop-loss orders you're safe, right? >> yeah, i mean that is why you've got to be aggressive on your stops and pick where you want to be reenter and when you're wrong, get out!. that is the key. people lose money because they look at their stops and let them run. and go, well, it will come back. it is not going to come back. aggressive on the stops. liz: okay. we got the message. we love it. thank you, mark sebastian. adam: takes a lot to become a great financial planner but takes something extra special to be best of the country. liz: best of the best of the best is part of that elite. she is ranked among top women financial planner for baron's last five years and including number one last year and this weekend she was named number two. susan kaplan, kaplan financial
services. "first on fox business" interview. first of all, susan, congratulations, this is way more than a random win here. you are obviously superior in many ways thaw approach what you do. if you could say from your own perspective what is the best thing you do that becomes so successful for managing money? what is it? what is that secret sauce. >> i think it is enabling the clients to really stay to their allocation despite all the market noise. liz: you know what? you may have heard mark sebastian saying watch out, be careful. you have to be very disciplined when it comes to buying a stock and then selling it so you don't lose money and take profits correct? >> correct. but one of the things people have been focusing on the length of the bull market, not the slow, grinding gradual bull market. adam: you're more optimistic about the slow grinding bull market? >> yes, it has been a more
rationale market. the market this year dovetailed with earnings. so it is much less heady than 2013. think there is every reason to believe we'll have a lovely year this year. adam: yet you would advise a client who might be risk-averse despite thinking stocks will go higher, i give you two age groups. someone who is age 45. they might look it have municipal bond that are insured. maybe someone closer to retirement a different kind of bond, right? >> exactly, correct. when people make allocations for their life, it really has nothing to do with how the markets are doing currently. it has to do with, the percentage that they have to keep absolutely safe or generate their retirement income with and the percentage that they need in the market to protect them from inflation. and you really can't change that allocation with the market noise or you will be jerking the money in and out. as you know, ultimately hurting
yourself. liz: you can't time the markets. that said, you can do certain things that are super creative. what have you invented for people's portfolios and last five years you continue to win the great acclaimed spot on "barron's" list? >> most people reach a point, well, first of all, when people retire, whatever their risk tolerances is it plummets at retirement. first time they're not adding to it. they're only emotional feeling i can't afford to lose money. so their risk tolerance is much lower. any amount of market volatility or scariness they want to exit completely. what i taught them you can bring doesn't risk and choose, balanced fund, things less aggressive than individual stock or growth funds, still stay negotiate market. adam: but, susan, people who might be younger have appetite for risk but they have to be
careful chasing yield. you warn people. everyone is talking about private he can get firms? you say stay away from the funds. seems the yield you get, return would be a lot better, especially if you recover from a loss? >> the small investors that are now being allowed to invest in the private equity firms can't tolerate those losses. liz: now i need -- go ahead, sorry. >> no, you go ahead. liz: oh, no, i didn't know your thought was done. i would very interested to know what you are avoiding right now? >> generally speaking i want my clients to have their allocation cake tear of their -- take care of their income needs and. bond portion would be individual bond and munis in non-qualified accounts. aaa rated corporates in the qualified. not bond funds. knot junk bonds, individual
bonds. they have enough risk in the market. i don't want any risk in their bond portfolio. liz: not junk bonds, not bond funds. adam: susan kaplan. one. reasons she protected her clients, she started out as a nurse. so she has this kind of belief of being careful with people? , right, susan. >> yeah. adam: all the best. congratulations again. >> thank you so much for having me, bye-bye. liz: thank you. what do disney's "frozen" and real estate heating up in manhattan have in common? normally not much but this weekend one star realtor took the open house concept to a new level with a frozen movie theme. it wasn't his first themed open house. his idea and him. he will come and talk to us about that straight ahead. adam: also landmark trial that could change the face of college sports get underway today and fulls of dollars are at stake. bragging rights are next. liz: plus we'll tell you which cars and trucks have the best

lifetime moment. you said three times the sales that you saw about a year ago for kings' stuff, but will it really add to your bottom line in the end? >> well, it will be a huge driver for us if the kings are good enough and, obviously, we think they are, to go on and win the cup. and what's really exciting for us with our relationship with the national hockey league is ten years ago when the kings won the cup, we were able to secure a visit by the cup itself into our west los angeles store which is really a block away from your studios here in los angeles, and our action pass members had a chance to come in and be photographed with the cup, some kissed the cup -- [laughter] i just held it up. but it was really an exciting night, and then the cup got on a first class jet, had a first class seat to canada. so we have a great relationship with the nll. adam: i'm holding up some miami heat paraphernalia here, you've got the hat, the jacket, jersey. even in a place like l.a. when you have big basketball fans, when a team makes it to the
playoffs, we saw ticket prices shoot up to a record of $1600 -- liz: oh, it's more like $2,000. adam: just making the playoffs, even if it's not the home city, does it drive up the merchandise? >> we don't change the price, but certainly the desire increases. what really happens, you know, is you look at underdogs that step up, you know, the clippers are a perfect example of what happened, you know, in the month of may with that franchise and how, you know, under steve balmer's relationship how much more successful they're going to be. same thing with the los angeles dodgers. a change in ownership spiked our sales because the dodger fans realized the improvement was going to be there, and that's proven to have come true. the kings, you know, how do you look at that record of resiliency and grit and determination and fighting through all that diversity all season long? it's great human drama, a great interest story and the ultimate in reality television. liz: oh, i couldn't agree more. you could go on for hours with
me, craig, i'm absolute in agreement. the hat sales, you know, what are these retailing for, about $26? >> that's right. liz: yeah. you are way more than just sports equipment. so it's not, i'm not quite sure you're a good comparison to a modells, for example, because you're in camping apparel, you're in all kinds of opportunities. you know, what kind of opportunity at the beverly center, i know you've got a store right near there, that people getting stuff for skiing and for outdoorsman activities? >> right. well, actually, we don't have that store. we opened a new store in downtown los angeles -- liz: oh, yeah, moved. >> two blocks north of staples center. so we're the largest scuba retailer in the world, 32 of our stores have scuba training pools. we sell more gear than anybody on the west coast. the cool thing about sports chalet is we teach what we sell. if you want to learn how to ice climb, we can teach you how to do that, hike, we can teach you how to do that, and we have a team sales division that calls
on schools and teams and leagues, when san diego state played in the poinsettia bowl last year, we embellished the products and put them on the field. so we touch athletes at all levels, and we like to say you get great gear at sports chalet, your performance will improve, and you'll look good doing it. liz: craig, i mean, i've been going to kings games for 40 years. it's amazing, isn't it? >> right. liz: go, kings, right? you think they can do it? >> i don't think there's any question. our if-win orders are in, and our logistics teams are ready to go. the minute they clinch, we'll have product on the floor and online to celebrate -- adam: de blasio said he would dress up in kings gear if the rangers lose, so are you going to be the one who sends the clothing out there? >> i'll make sure i get exactly the right size, and we'll have it on the way today. liz: just pummel all of the officers, please -- [laughter] with kings stuff. good to see you, craig, good luck to you. thank you so much. adam: amazon is going to paypal
