tv   Varney Company  FOX Business  November 3, 2014 11:00am-1:01pm EST

11:00 am
business and fox news. later on in the week, the jobs report for the month of october. that will do it for "opening bell" today. thanks for being here. it time for "varney & company." stuart, have a great show. stuart: thanks, maria. this is going to be a very big week. it's monday, and here we go. good morring, everyone. item one, the election is trending to the republicans, "the washington post" says there is a 95% probability they take the senate. investors like that. item two, gas is now below $3 a gallon we all like that. the economy gets a shot in the arm and three, it's november. after a very good month for stocks, the tough month, october, is over. add it up. your money is looking good. % and "varney & company" is about to begin. ♪ all right. look at that big board. we are coming back and we were down 40 and we go on the air
11:01 am
and now we're down 20. okay. this has been -- october is historically not a good month for stocks. now we're in november, historically a good month for stocks and we're only down 23 points to start it off this monday morning. two big tech names. both of them big names, both new highs. a apple 109.78 and alibaba. the price of gold no bounceback. 1168. in fact, there's a statistical barrier there, 1170, we've dropped below it. all right, oil, it dropped to 79 and change earlier. now it's at 80 and change. $80.20 per barrel. let me give you the big news for your money this monday morning, the price of gas. falling about a penny a day. the average is 2.98, the first time in four years. i paid 2.69 in new jersey early this morning. not bad.
11:02 am
the $2 club, that keeps getting better. these are the states where the average price for regular is under $3. 23 states in all. in just a few minutes. patrick doohan will tell us where to behind the cheapest gas in america and tells us whether the drop will continue through this week. first, it's a trend we've been seeing in the election cycle, democratic candidates distancing themselves from the president, actually running away from him. people leaving earll from events where the president is speaking and the political reports, the president is quote, fed up with being a pariah at the midterms. here is the digital politics editor, chris, is making his first ever appearance on "varney & company." what took so long. >> probably elite status and not allowing hillbilly pundits into your show. that's okay, we mountain folk are durable. stuart: you're a mountain kind of guy? >> let me tell you, just under
11:03 am
the surface. stuart: okay. we have politico saying that the president is fed up with being outside of the midtermm and that he is retreating, almost into a bunker mentality. what do you make of that? >> he's been bunkered for a little bit. the situation now is second midterms for two term presidents othee than bill clinton are bad news. certainly bad news for george w. bush in 2006. it's how it goess the president has struggled to deal with that and he's struggled to accept it and now he has a particularly tooic here is the point though, politics is tough and sometimes your feelings get hurt. and you can't show that and the president can't go out and say,
11:04 am
let it be known. they have scolded democrats for not embracing the democrats and i donnt know if you understand how this goes? >> don't do that. >> thhre's some drama in the iowa senate race. the outgoing democrat saying, you make sexist comments against joni earnst. let's roll tape. >> joni is attractive. i don't care if as good looking as taylor swift well, she was on fox and friends on fox news this morning. here is her reactions to senator harkens' comments. i was offended that senator harken would say that, i think it's unfortunate that he and
11:05 am
many of heir party believe that you can't be a real woman if you're conservative and female. i believe if my name had been john ernst attached to my resume' he wouldn't have said. >> if the republicans had judged a woman by her looks, what would be the reaction this monday morning? >> napalm. it would be giant -- it would be bad. i'll caution joni ernst and republicans, umbrage taking is dangerous, democrats are better it would seem the better answer is to say, we understand that senator harken is probably not happy about the way this race is going. >> do you remember during the
11:06 am
2012 campaign the expression binders of women. >> the democrats ran for months on that, really pummelled mitt romney. >> right. -p>> just for that one innocuou expression. >> right. >> now we have senator harken saying, oh, she's very attractive. >> it was sexist. tom harkin made a fairly gross sexist comment, the part she could look like taylor swift and be as nice as mr. rogers, that's not pleasant. but the first part, i hear a lot about had her and she's very attractive. that's an error, he is a clearly not, not on his game and he doesn't understand that was a sexist comment. >> do you think the republicans are remiss not jumping on this, strongly, and saying, come on, what is this? >> i think a little goes a long way when it comes to umbrage taking by republicans. if you get into a battle by the gotcha stuff and high thresholds, the next time a
11:07 am
republican screws up, youuget it back. and voters like it when you carry the water on outrage aj with the republicans, the press doesn't want to do the work and leave it aside. >> yes. chris stirewalt, thanks for being on the program. and i understand you've been on the program previously. as you just saw the man, his name is charles payne. 's he been on this program all of last week, saying, hey, november, that's a great month for stocks. do you think the market has nowhere to go, but up? >> it can always go down, but i like the setup. [laughter] >> what an easy out that is. >> that's what we taught me at harvard 101. and i want to chime in, i don't think there'' anything wrong with saying a woman is attractive and i think joni ernst is attractive.
11:08 am
i think what harken sort of did was int at attractiveness and smartness can't go hand in hand and should offend all women. having said that, the markets in november, here is the thing, i think a lot of ur viewers have a problem with, this has been the worst post-session recoveryyin history. you don't need to have a college education or economist to know this, the economy is getting better, weere where we are should have been four years ago, we're getting better. a number out this morning was fantastic. the earnings last week were the most telling numbers i saw in a long time so we're getting better and the market might ride that wave a little bit higher and the momentum could carry, remember, it's the pros, the experts who are throwing this market and may have to play catch up. >> you put your foot into it again. >> you've got me on videotape. [laughter] >> you on't know what we've got on tape with you. the dow is down 22 points, it's
11:09 am
coming back a bit from when we first went on the air and we're holding at minus 20. and automakers, gm disappointed. october sales increased .2% compared to the same month last year, year on year, up only 2%. ford sales actually down 2%. nissan up, and toyota sales gained almost 7%. have falling gas prices helped boost suv ssles? a very good question. jefffflock will answer it in our next hour. let's et back to the falling gas prices with patrick doohan in chicago. where is the cheapest gas in these here united states? >> i think the secret is out, still the sim gas station in texas phillips 66 at 2.25 a gallon. >> we should get them on the phone to see if they're prices to get on the show and gasbuddy.com? >> i couldn't tell you, you've
11:10 am
got to wonder, if many days consecutive we're talking about them. i wonder if they are. >> i wonder if 2.25, if you pay more with a nice fancy meecedes. do you think that the gas prices are going to fall much further? >> i don't ttink so. we're going to see the national average begin to slow down, we're at 2.97 a gallon this morning, i can't see it getting under 2.90 a gallon unless oil prices manage to close under 80 and they continue to go under, above, under. they haven't closed there yet. if they can manage to get under 79, 78, sure another few weeks of decline, but it looks like that concrete is thickening at $80 a barrel. >> let's suppose e stabilize at 2.95 a gallon for regular. do you think we'll stay there for a while? >> i think we'll bottom out. yeah, right around 2.95. will we ssay there? perhaps for a few weeks, i think that prices will inch up in mid december as we get towards the end.
11:11 am
year when inventories tend to tight and bit. i think a lot still depends what opec does from here on out. are they going to continue to feud? what developments will come of that? that's the big question mark. >> you see, chris, what we're looking for-- i'm sorry, patrick, what we're looking for is impact on the economy. if you tell us that the price of gasoline for regular is going to stick around $3 a gallon, give or take five or ten cents, that's a big shot in

it seems the u.s. is going to fine two korean automakers for misstating mileage, mileage per gallon. two korean automakers are going to get fined for that. nbc news rachel maddow took me on and she got it dead wrong. she took a screen grab of this ppogram, ann she showed it on hers. the banner, that's the thing across the bottom the banner said cheap gas hurts the economy, question mark? well, we posed that question, only to debunk it. now, listen to how she spun it. >> on the business version of fox news, look at their headline on this story, about the unusually low gas prices right now. look at this. cheap gas hurts the economy? genius fox has decided fox decided that low gas prices are
11:17 am
a president obama purposely tainting the economy with these unthese-- low gas prices? we report, you decide. stuart: yes, we do. and what, i ran a banner asking the question, that's all i did. >> well, clear up a couple situations, clearly rachel never watched the show and didn't listen to the interview. she didn't need to because the banner has the question mark. it says that you're clearing not taking that position, you're asking a question. what's going on here? it's not just that it is msnbc that's floundering and panicking with their ratings. i mean, when cnn overtakes msnbc, you know you've got a problem, but this is the far left of the hard left. these are character assassins,
11:18 am
this is that media matters group that lies insist santly and you heard that, they lied incessantly anddplease sue me, media matters. they lie incessantly. they've done it to rush limbaugh and glenn beck and now trying to do it to you, feeding people stories that are absolute lies. stuart: awe narrowed that down nicely. you brought us the bias in the mainstream media coverage of the midterm electionings. you went back to 2006 when there was six times as much coverage of the midterms when president bush was in office then, unpopular in the media and president obama now. how about in the last week, moving up to the last week of the election. have the big three networks continued reporting. >> good news, abc news one week ago ran their first story since june 11th. this is a preposttrous performance by the national
11:19 am
news media. they simply do not want to report. and you know, this is turning out to be one of the most exciting races in recent history. those people like "the washington post" said it's a 95% probability. they're flat-out wrong. it might happen, but the polls all show it's neck and neck. these are nail-biiers all over the country. so you think the press would take some interest. stuart: okay. democrat senator tom harkin, he made a comment saying jody ernst, the republican candidate for senator in iowa is quote, very attractive. some people suggest that that is a sexist comment to make. it the media reporting it outside of fox? >> no, they're not. if the national news media -- if you loooed at what the left says about her, about sarah palin, about michele bachmann, if a conservative said that -pabout a liberal, it'd be fron page news everywhere. it's not just women, it's
11:20 am
blacks, it's the way they tteat conservative blaaks, it's the same thing, if they're conservative we use the words that liberals use against blacks, you'd be accused of racism. and yet, the left uses it with impunity. why? because they know they can because the networks won't report it. stuart: you know, i've often said to you that i thought things might change. when it becomes so obvious that there's inherent bias in the big three broadcast networks, i thought things would change, but apparently nothing's -pchanged at all? >> no, the ideology trumps business. the ideology of the far left that controls the networks has now gone into the arena of journalistic malpractice. stuart: that's a terrible thing, bret, because we now have elections decided in the media by a media who is wildly biased towards one particular side and i think it helped change america and i don't like it one bit. >> i think it's a direct threat to democracy itself. if you have a public that's not
11:21 am
informed or misinformed by the national news media, it really is hurtful to the democratic progress. stuart: well said. bret bozell, always a pleasure. appreciate it, sir. more trouble ahead for mcdonald's, now it's healthy food served up as fast as a big mac. and this healthy food, fast food is gaining popularity. we'll talk to a man who runs planet hollywood later this hour. after the break, tightrope % walker, nick wallenda breaking two records in chicago. we'll have more from the daredevil after this. ♪

stuart: well, we're coming back to just about dead flat, down 16 points as of now. big news of the day, though, is regular gasoline has dropped below $3, first time in four years, we're at $2.98, national average. as for cheap gas, well, here's the question: is that giving suv sales a boost? jeff flock joins us from chicago. jeff, you've got some specific examples cheap gas suv sales? >> reporter: i do. it is starting to have an impact. by the way, i did hear a rumor that you think low gas prices are bad for the economy, aad i just wanted to say, that's going to ruin your reputation as a cheapskate. stuart: have you been -- i'm not going to get into it, because i know you've been watching the other guy. >> i watch them all. even our old friends. [laughter] here's the numbers on suv sales. you know, chevy had a very flat
12:32 pm
month, gm had a flat month. chevy sales only up about a quart or half a percent, but the chevy traverse, that's their most popular suv, up 24%. at the same time, those fuel-sipping models like the chevy sonic, for example, which gets 40 miles to the gallon on the highway, that was down 23%. and your favorite vehicle, the chevy volt, that the sales were down 28% on the month. it's not just gm. for example, on chrysler side, the jeeps have done tremendously well. they continue to do well. they're not fuel sippers. the jeep cherokee and grand cherokee combined up over 100% year on year. the fiats are up too, but 1%. stuart: wow. >> reporter: we're starting to see an impact. stuart: it's dramatic, because that is a very strong impact between mucc cheaper gas prices and what kind of cars people buy. that's fascinating. >> reporter: i think we would really like to have the bigger

cars if we can, the cars with more capability if, you know, if we can pay $3 for gas, that's a big difference. stuart: a lot offgreens come out of america as if they're europeans, as if we should drive in tight spaces -- >> reporter: we don't have tight spaces here. stuart: but this is a vast continent. it's nice to have a big suv to cruise around in. it's nice! eveeybody likes that kind of thing. why can't we have what we want, jeff?

12:34 pm
stuart: former chief of staff for joe biden at the dnc and president of box global, robert hoopes is his name, a guust on this program previously. robert, i was surprised that the establishment media did not puck up on what senator -- pick up on what senator harkin said because many people suggest to say ms. ernst is really attractive and to judge her on the basis of her looks as opposed to her abilities, that's gross sexism. it seems like a double standard to me. >> yeah. it hasn't gotten a tremendous amount of traction. people in washington both in the parties and in the media here aren't really covering it. stuart: but why? >> well, you know, i don't know. i can't speak to those news outlets, you know? it clearly was an attempt to be
12:35 pm
funny that was not funny. there was a similar incident in october of 2011 when then-senate candidate scott brown in massachusetts made an off-color remark about senator elizabeth warren and how she looked and her appearance and taking her clothes off. so i don't know if you guys covered that as much as you're covering this -- stuart: i tell you what we remember, binders of women. do you remember that comment? binders of women. >> i do. stuart: an innocuous comment by the establishment media ran with that for days and weeks in 2012 and just kept on going at it. they thought they'd found a chipg in the armor, and to exploit it as the war on women. you know, robert, you've got to say the establishment media is on your side. and chooses stories and chooses coverage to conform with what they want to see. don't they? >> yeah. i -- well, there's this interesting phenomenon in washington where these anecdotes
12:36 pm
about candidates whether it's gerald ford, probably the most athletic president we everrhad, falling down the stairs coming out of air force one made him looo clumsy and unathletic and not competent, and it's fed into that narrative of the ford administration. and i think the romney incident reflected a pattern of what people saw in romney that, you know, 47% of the country are lazy, and, you know, this notion that he was somehow out of touch. i don't think that, you know, this was a surrogate, it wasn't the candidate himself who said this. so i don't think it's gotten the kind of attention that had it been an actual candidate that had made these remarks. stuart: how do you feel about the one-sidedness of the coverage of these midterms? for example, in 2006 when president bush was unpopular, there were six times more coverage of the midterms by abc, nbc and cbs as there is now. president obama's unpopular,
12:37 pm
they're not covering it. president bush was wildly unpopular, and they covered it. >> yeah, i -- stuart: you've got to admit, the media is on your side, isn't it? >> well, i don't, i don't eel that way. i wake up and i look at what's% online, i look at the polls, i look at what's being covered every day i read pretty much every paper cover to cover, and i think if anything, you know, this administration is getting the crap kicked out of 'em right now, quite frankly. every story that talks about these races talks about the president's low approval rating. i'm frankly surprised there's not more talk about the republicans in congress and their low approval rating, lower than democrats. and there's been a tremendous amount of very positive coverage about the republican candidates running for senate this year and where they are competitive in states that three or four months ago we would be here saying they wouldn't be competitive. i think these races are very local, and it's tricky to say nationally there's this kind of coverage when these are north carolina-specific, colorado,
12:38 pm
iowa, south dakota, west virginia, you know, very interesting governors' races in wisconsin, florida, maine, maryland which is, you know, increasingly close. so i've seen a lot of local coverage that is covering these candidates and what they're going to do at a local level and what they're going to do once they win, and i think that's where the interest that i'm seeing out of voters is they're tired of the partisanship, and they really want to know what these folks are going to do when they get to washington or when they get to the statehhuse. stuart: do you think the republicans are going to win the senate? >> i think it looks pretty good. stuart: pretty good? you're a democrat. >> i know, yeah. we're going to find out if these pollsters are right, and if they're right, republicans are going to win control of the senate. stuart: robert hoopes, thanks for joining us. appreciate it. neil cavuto has mitt romney tonight at 8 p.m.on the fox business network. 8:00 tonight with neil, fbn. got another setback for the privatization of space.

12:44 pm
number one, you're going to get expectations, particularly if the gop can produce a cohesive plan. number two, there's a lot of fund managers that have got to chase performances, so they've got to be buying coming into the end of the year. and third, we're setting up for really what i think is going to be an interesting 2015, people are going to want to get ahead of the fed. stuart: peeple on this program have said 18,000 by the end of the year for the dow. what do you say? >> you know, that's not inconceivable in my mind, stuart. stuart: what happens if the election tomorrow does not return the gop to control the senate? >> probably a some digestion. we're at peakish levels technically anyway, so i wouldn't be surprised if we get a squiggle, but then we're off to the races. stuart: before you go, disasters for virgin galactic and orbital sciences. kind of cast a shadow over private space exploration. would you think twice about investing in these companies? i know this is nottyyur normal
12:45 pm
area, but private space operations, good investment or not at this time? >> well, it depeeds on our view, stuart. if you're a pioneer and you believe innthe future like i do, i'm planning to go up into space when i get the opportunity. of course, my wife says i'm out in space, but that's a different issue. i think people forget that we loss a lot of lives in the early days of space exploration whether it was private or public, so to me, this is a setback, the it's par for the course. it's tragic, but that's not a reason to abandon space exploration or the private companies -- stuart: and you would invest? i know it's not your area, but you wouldn't say, no, never in a million years? you wouldn't do that? >> not at all. clearly, there's a lot of benefits to the zimm january product -- civilian product market, i'm fully expecting virgin to produce a number of those innovations, alternative fuels, better controls. i think there's things that are going to happen in space that are going to directly benefit the rest of the market, and i do want a piece of that as an

12:49 pm
yes. stuart: and where do your commercials run? is it tv, facebook -- >> we do a lot of commercials, actually, and that's what was so beautiful about this campaign, because we launched it, and the girls speaking to us through other channels, twitter, facebook, you know? and there's a whole hashtag, it's aeriereal, and they're talking to us and telling us they love what we represent. stuart: i think it's a very good social thing. >> i agree. i agree. stuart: do you just go out on the streets and get models? >> no, we do use agencies, but they're not supermodels, you know? and they're not intimate apparel mod hells necessarily. that's been really -- models necessarily. the models themselves are actually asking to come to aerie because we don't do the photoshopping. stuart: jen foil, aerie, have i got that right? >> yes. stuart: good idea. i've got some breaking news, the dallas fed president, richard
