2:02 pm
every time there is a dip seems to be a lot a buy be opportunity. there is a lot of complacency in ♪. charles: the feds wanted some the market right now. roger stone. the economy is on good footing. they thought they had him. i don't discount political risk. they wanted the republican i told you and your audience, operative sentenced up to nine years in prison for lying to charles, a put option is a great congress and obstruction. option for march expiring, it looks like the tables are november expiring, in event we turning after fox learned that a get a bernie sanders nominee. juror posted anti-trump and stone messages online after i think the market would take the turn for the worse. charles: here is my theory on attorney general bill barr that. agreed to testify next month on yesterday was a perfect example. the doj decision to recommend a look at biggest winners. lighter sentence. joining me national republicans among them united healthcare. lawyers association member, went up to $315 a share. harmeet dhillon. great to have you in studio. when elizabeth warren was >> thank you, charles. charles: this brand new surging, unitedhealthcare stock development this morning with was sell lacked. social media posts by one of the in fact she had the biggest poll jurors. numbers in the summer or late i read some of them. october, that is when the stock i'm not a lawyer. was hammered. seems to me the market is it feels like she had bidding up unitedhealthcare on preconceived animosity towards bernie sanders win. president trump and those either they don't think he will associated to them. be the nominee or they think >> if you're a trial lawyer you trump will crush him? rely on jurors to fill out >> the reason that happened, charles, bernie just eked out a question nays correctly in the
2:03 pm
federal system. victory in new hampshire. the judge examined the jurors it wasn't a double-digit victory a lot of people feared. herself and the question is that is the reason i think whether the juror lied about her health care moved higher. bias. the market is pricing trump we aren't there but what comes out she concealed her views re-election or bernie sanders is which would have caused a lawyer not the nominee. if you get one of those two to strike her for cause. and so, if that is the case, events that actually occur, that could be, that would be trump is not reelected and grounds for a mistrial. sanders is the nominee, health charles: speaking of the judge, care will fall. president trump pushing back charles: let me ask you about today's session specifically against the judge amy jackson. because while the coronavirus gets a lot of the oxygen, they what is your thought on this? make the headlines, as i looked are judges above it all? through today's winners it seems should there not be any to be all about fundamentals criticism? because you look at the best because there has been some negative articles that trump has performers, real estate, is gone too far? >> it is awkward. being led by iron mountain. as a lawyer who appears in front of these judges obviously it is iron mountain crushed it on earnings. utilities. our duty not to show contempt duke energy had amazing report. for the court. that is one bucket. the president is sort of the boss of one branch of the so while there might be some government. this is another branch. so there is complexity there but knee-jerk moves to safety if you judges are human beings. will, the fundamentals still judges commit error. matter, don't they? we have a member of congress who >> absolutely they do. was impeached as a federal consumer confidence is not highs judge. clearly they're able to commit
2:04 pm
not seen since decades for no some serious errors, reason, right? consumer confidence is very alcee hastings. i think it is appropriate for high. small business confidence very the president to express his high. that induces, combined with real frustration. but ultimately the legal system wages being on the rise, that induces consumption that has to take its course of the judge in question is not provokes investments so all of overturning the guilty verdict. these things are fundamentally so now likely to have to go to sound. the economy and markets like a court of appeals. charles: real quick. country that is moving in the bill barr will speak before direction less government, not congress. many are saying this is an more, less regulation, not more and i think if we continue in impeachment effort number whatever. this is now, we're on the next that trend markets will continue path of resentment towards the to move higher. charles: i wish we had more time president will be centered around bill barr. to talk as you were speaking >> absolutely. market going up even more. eric swalwell from my neck of we appreciate your wisdom. >> charles, thanks. the woods already said that. charles: president trump it is unfortunate for them. welcomes governor andrew cuomo i don't think they will get a to the white house, folks. better out come than they did the democrat is trying to with the president. persuade president trump to charles: harmeet, thank you. reverse the call to ban >> thanks, charles. charles: breaking news for you. new yorkers over global entry because of the state's sanctuary the senate approving bipartisan resolution to restrict president status. trump's war powers when it comes hillary vaughn at the white house with a preview. to iran. this coming after the president this could be a donnybrook. did not seek congressional reporter: it could be, charles. approval to take out the rogue

taxpayers billions and trillions, 1.6 trillion in student loans backed by u.s. government, the taxpayers billions weren't enough so they had to go hunting for other billions. this is primarily about money. there is a lot of money coming into universities through programs like this and through foreign students, especially for public universities, the difference between in-state tuition and full tuition they can charge to people from other countries is a big moneymaker. charles: they often pay in cash. something happened, near and dear your heart, the house removed deadline from the equal rights movement. you have been very vocal about all this what is your reaction? >> there is a massive mistake from the house. billing this equal rights, sounds good, language is broad and happy the reality this could really backfire on women. there are enormous radical consequences to this amendment. for example, not having women's and men's restrooms. they're having debate in the
2:36 pm
transgender context. this would make it cohe had. women's sports teams on public universities completely coed. we don't need to treat men and women exactly the same in every situation. that is radical and dangerous. charles: looks like it could become a reality. >> goes to the senate. that is to remove the deadline congress added in the 1970s and early 1980s. this process is mockery of the article v process. we have it going over 50 years, right? this amendment, listeners might remember when it was a big deal in 1970s. charles: sure i remember, yeah. >> this is totally illegitimate process. they're telling states you have no right to change your mind. we'll not have this really important national conversation about those consequences to give americans time to sort out the gazi language from the real consequences and reality of this amendment. charles: inez, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> thank you. charles: meanwhile the treasury department is cracking down on
2:37 pm
crypto. treasury secretary steve mnuchin says the department will roll out new regulations to improve transparency around all cryptocurrencies like bitcoin and other transactions. here to discuss "claman countdown" host liz claman. liz, your thoughts on this? >> yes. charles: steve mnuchin cracking down on cryptocurrency? >> yeah, they're piling on the regulations. charles: they are. he made his opposition to it pretty clear. i thought it was interesting because you have the trump administration not too happy with it. you have maxine waters not too happy with it. wall street banks not too happy with it. but the american public, there is appetite for cryptocurrency. >> look at it. it punched through the 10,222-dollar level. the question, what is driving this rally we've seen of several thousand dollars moving to the upside even as this atmosphere of regulation on behalf of the u.s. treasury department continues to pile higher and deeper. what i find so interesting,
2:38 pm
charles as well. there is one country that has just filed 84 patents to create a central bank cryptocurrency. can you guess which country that is? charles: china. >> exactly. china. charles: ding, ding. >> yea, charles. that plus ray j scooters can get you a nickel. we're looking at this very closely because we're wondering what's behind the rally. if china is ahead of us, more regulation. we'll talk to andy bromberg. he is a genius. he is the guy that vet as lot of cryptocurrency. he is the cofounder of coin lift. we'll ask him what is behind the bitcoin rally and does it have legs. charles: up almost 50% already. can't wait to check out the show. check it out, the claim man "countdown" at the top of the hour. also coming up at the top of the hour, president trump set to welcome governor on a drew cuomo to the white house what i'm sure
2:39 pm
will be a contentious meeting. we're heading into the final hour of trading. we're off the session lows. wonder if the cp effect can get us into the green? i have great news for you. stay with us. ♪. president trump warned the drug companies. it's unacceptable that americans pay vastly more than people in other countries, for the exact same drugs. but they aren't listening. they've just raised the prices of over five hundred drugs. president trump supports a bipartisan plan, that would force drug companies to lower prices. but the senate won't act. tell senate leaders to stop drug company price gouging and lower drug prices now.

charles: all right. the market opened down big-time but the s&p and nasdaq, already back in the green.
2:43 pm
in part the strong earnings from applied materials. is it too much of a good thing? i want to ask pointview wealth management's david dietze along with keith fitz-gerald. keith, let me start with you. first of all, the coronavirus, the change in numbers, certainly a shocking headline and it's something you have expressed some anxiety about, and adding to the frustration, there was sort of a coast is clear yesterday. ray dalio set that up. people condemned him for it. he came back with a series of tweets including one that says i think that i am a blank blank relative to experts on the subject so i shouldn't be asked, but if i were to guess, there's a wide range of possible outcomes. that was just two of four posted tweets there. where are we with this? because you have expressed some real anxiety about it. >> well, i tell you what, not based on personal experience, i have been in china when i have watched them lock down hotels during, for example, the avian
2:44 pm
flu. that information wasn't reported over here. so the fact that we've got just 60,000 cases, according to data coming from china, really makes my skin crawl. i think the number is probably twice that, maybe even three times that. i don't think the markets here have even remotely factored that into the pricing. to me this is very much get ahead of the news, fade the back page situation. charles: it's not just getting ahead of the news, yesterday we had an upgrade on wynn which gets 89% of its revenue from macao. today we had an upgrade knowing these stocks are down in part because of coronavirus on caterpillar, starbucks, semiconductors. wall street is saying buy this right now. >> i mean, if you study history, the burden is on those who would say get out of this market and go home because when you look at the last 20 epidemics going back to 1980, typically the market is up by about 10% a year after the onset. remember the pivot point is when that world health organization tells you it's a global health
2:45 pm
emergency because at that point, everyone knows there's a discount in prices and of course we will buy a solution. charles: if an american passed away in this country on our soil, i would be looking maybe to trim my own portfolio. you know, keith, david and i were talking during the break about the violent dips. there really has not been a dip but a great example of that was tesla. tesla said they would raise $2 billion. the stock gets hammered at the open. it's down to $735, now it's at $818. a 100-point swing. is this sort of the poster child for where we are right now, where it's just buy, buy, buy, buy, buy? >> well, you know, in some parts, yes. part of that's got a lot to do with elon musk himself. david makes a very good point. this is the speed bump that's associated with this event or any other negative market event over time proves to be a buying opportunity in the rear view mirror. the only question is a matter of perspective and timing. so to me, this is a lot like being at the rodeo.
2:46 pm
you want to ride to the buzzer until you have a reason not to. charles: pretty tough when the buzzer goes off and you are flying off them broncos. did i use the right terminology? believe it or not, i have been to a rodeo. okay. one thing i do want to get to real quick, there is some fundamental stuff, like today, the groups that were up early, real estate, utilities, materials, all being led by companies that posted great earnings reports. so earnings still matter, despite all of the other news that seems to dominate the market these days. >> a lot of the worry, looking at last year and saying earnings were flat, this market was up 31%, i would turn it around on them. earnings are flat which means comparables will be easy to beat this year. of course, a lot of companies went into this year worried about trade negotiations, worried about other things, cutting costs and now we are seeing 71% of stocks are beating expectations and 65% are beating revenue, even more important. charles: beating by a lot wider margin than wall street anticipated. thank you both very much. always appreciate your expertise. the dow is off 41 points. there's a chance that could be
2:47 pm
erased. remember yesterday, the last hour of trading, liz claman, the dow finished up 275 points. buckle up. we're ready. liz: you're looking at the red but we are looking at the green. the s&p and nasdaq are on track once again for brand new record closes. we've got our eye on it. but the coronavirus correction is fading at this hour. maybe that is what's punching these markets up into the green. markets earlier had seen steep losses. but now they have cut it. the losses were triggered by news that we warned you about for two weeks here on "the claman countdown." china has been seriously underreporting the number of those sickened by the deadly pathogen. the dow down by 33, the s&p
