elevators it was quite awful to be quite honest. new york stock exchange trading floor where i was that reporters from every country you can think of trying to work, while they already felt sick, didn't realize they had the darned disease, it was it was a really awful time. and -- and we were going into appeared where we knew family were going to have a hard time filing fooding toilet paper a time i don't like to look back on almost like 9/11. >> tell me about it kenny from your perspective, what rrp doing that way how were you trying to field around a fallen a market . >> had been precipitating by weeks ahead market started to fall as one way or another of virus was a spreading, and the world was getting more nervous, until this day a year ago when they came out and made that comment, i remember, feeling the stinking feeling
now i wasn't on the floor but having opponent 38 years there through a number of difficult times, you can imagine now the different place weren't 5500 people down there the way 1948 or 2000, but it is the sense of unease a sense of angst, anxiety in free-fall right, you start watching you start looking at what the point do circuitry breakers kick in? are we getting there? what happens if that happened a stinking feeling for sure doesn't feel good by any stretch. >> right guys, what is the number one lesson, you say investors should learn from what has happened that day till today? >> i tell you what, never bet against america. all right from operation warp speed to the treasury
department to the fed, they will go to almost any length make sure operates are liquid operate properly artificially supported as it has been look at markets you named almost all major indices energy up 70% over 12 months materials up 67%, the semiconductors not whole tech sector but semiconductors up 79% everything built today needs a brain intent stocks up 78% everything runs on nt what was i doing i was buying amd i bought so much lowest cash i have been in ages, have to sell some to get back in order. >> kenny what about you what would you say, taking from what what sergeant said don't get against america he go when something like this happens you start scooping up good
names that look kind of a little dirty if he moment. >> i think what happens you can tell if you look at chart at what point because it started to fall out of bed, you start to question yourself is now time is now time weaker, weaker, weaker most doing that guts to stand there, you stand at a price get run over out start to put your foot in the water you got to step back, for a maibt you got to eliminate the noise look at stocks you wants has story fundamentally changes is this out of control an opportunity in retrospect clearly is very much like i laughed other day kathy wag one tv talking about fund had gotten slammed down 40% when she gt on tv just stood there with the strength of character saying look nothing is really changed this is what i like
this is my stock, and that kind of mentality that you have off to in long term server right? you have to be able to say is this fundamentally changes or black swan going to create a long-term term opportunity. >> so true, great lessons from both of you, and sergeant made it through covid, thank you. we appreciate it -- >> i did -- >> -- i did, i absolutely march 12 last year i got sick was sick until 20th in new york when i got sick. >> all right, you both came back i am telling you you guys look better than ever thrill to have you as part of the claim "the claman countdown". >> bitcoin most proved to investments cryptocurrency
soaring more than 600% past year one in the event could kick rally into higher gear coin boys threatening to go public within possibly next two months some giving first major cryptocurrency 100-billion-dollar valuation one top analyst in critico space assigning buy rating 1895 dollar price target before public, why in lets ask him on fox business exclusive, i know you haven't put 100 billion evaluation on it but that is more than doordash and roku combined, can you justify anything even close to that for our viewers? >> well coinbase is gold standard in an open-ended growth category, so people are going to get very excited the valuation is going to be quite high. as we get closer, we get new versions, more visibility more guidelines, are current period
results. it is going to be easier to justify that type of valuation. >> what so is special in your opinion county a business you slapped my price target on it don't know where it is going public again a direct lifting. >> there is three things that make coinbase particularly interesting, one that is they have terrell good user experience they've had that a very long time matters not just corrupto, compared to other apps, the second is not jinx them 24e6 been very secure very hard to be crypto exchange in crypto wallet you are under attack a lot of time, i have been able to stay secure, fird perform they have been regulatory compliant he freedomed from day one doefrng to stay inside lines

susceptible to that that cuts both case as crypto assets continue to ascend volatility have i they are doing phenomenally well did in fourth quarter last year safe to imagine they are doing so right now, but their business model is not going to be a recurring revenue business model not o are a a mile there is going to be ups and downs part of the crypto category what is unique they are somewhat adverseed is -- diversified. >> i when you come back when they debut, on the exchange we can see how they actually do? >> a would appreciate that absolutely. >> happito. thank you very much amc positive reviewers after last night's reflection quarterly numbers beat top and bottom line estimates, shares move

but despite the ongoing controversy, new data suggests that the only brokerage has growth hotter than ever and downloads going nuts accelerating charlie gasparino you've got numbers ub tell us. >> numbers from a company called 42 matters, a swiss data company that tracks these things we also ran numbers by robinhood not denying them, by the way. and it shows two things extraordinary growth, in robinhood, particularly since the beginning of the year when this whole gamestop trading frenzy began and regulatory reaction came so remember two things going on here, and also for what we understand emboldening executives to push for ipo, we're getting timeing in a second let me move right off numbers remarkable, 42
matters since begins of the year downloaded 2.5 million times. compares to 5 million times, for the 10 months previous and 10 months he previous was off the charts as well. so this -- still not reached any saturation downloading robinhood using despite scrutiny again i said from what i understand, executives inside robinhood emboldened by numbers he believe they can go to markets believe tremendous vest an tooipt based on growth numbers the one fly in the ointmentment liz is this regulatory stimulus they face investigation, lawsuits they believe getting through them all obviously, they don't believe they were manipulating conspiring with citadel remember that conspiring with
critic gel to crush gamestop traders because citadel had relationship they believe they get through that it is a regulatory issue disclosesble event if you do ipo that is what they are weighing numbers point there is a lot of there there in terms of the business model i will point this out, this is a word of caution on this as a stock, i know for a fact private equity firms that looked at that -- at robinhood early on backed off because trading model is very, very risky from a regulatory standpoint. whenever you are engaging with novice investors retail investors you open yourself up to know customer rules bunch of zuf in terms of regulatory action that is something that a robinhood is going to have to deal with, if it does go
public, and investors have to deal with so these are some things robinhood is weighing, but the user growth from my understanding is emboldening them to do something sooner rather than later that is will ray of cash. they can use it one reason they had to stop trading halt trading for on stocks because they didn't have regulatory capital to process them clear them so can use he money clearly there is a lot of interest, interesting story i think going to know more in weeks ahead as to what when they become public there has been reporting by bloomberg going to file this month confidentially so you know when you do confidential ipo filing gives you leeway to pull it back you don't have to do like not on road show should filing already like you can you can -- you can -- you can do it whatever. so, you know there are obviously, leaving themselves wiggle room because of the controversy, but they got this
company is going up, if you -- if these numbers are real. i mean -- again we put a call into robinhood they did not deny numbers, they have no further comment liz back to you. liz: i am taking that as a "yes" charlie thank you great stuff charlie gasparino gamestop, is now at 264 dollars, but the high of gamestop's live was 480. so long way to go to get back to that from robinhood the reddit room trend row blocs up 55% yesterday adding another 6% in this final hour of trade as investments kathy woods said she picked ip more half a million shares of the gaming platform, as you see shares now at 73.74.
