"varney and company" begins right now. stuart: omicron not so bad was little evidence of severe symptoms. it is pretty rapidly but it is not delta and to investors that makes all the difference. it means reopening the economy may be easier and faster. the dow after rallying 600 points is up 300 as of right now free-market. that is 1000 point run up, same

story with the s&p, big-game monday, solid gains tuesday morning. take a look at apple, it is on a tear, 26% this year, very close to its all-time high, $170 a share. money in stocks you've got a piece of apple and morgan stanley says it is going to $200 a share. everything is up this morning. bitcoin back above 50 grand, 51,000 to be precise and interest rates holding well below the one% level, one.5%. this is an omicron ain't so bad rally, interest rate hikes put aside at least for now. 60 minutes from now president biden and vladimir putin square off in a virtual meeting. in the background a threatened
9:02 am
russian invasion of ukraine. we are told biden would lay out for putin the consequences, more questions and consequences for ukraine. china threatening taiwan saying the us, diplomatic boycott of the olympics. america is being squeezed by two dictated. and everyone must get a shot by december 27th for you can't work. things schools are a mess, mayor deblasio leaves office december 31st as the worst -- wall street journal said the city can't be rid of mister deblasio soon enough.
9:03 am
chris cuomo preparing to sue cnn. he was fired saturday but he wants the $18 million he thinks he is owed on his contract. the latest headline from elon musk, scrap build back better because it adds to the deficit. tuesday december 7th, '80 years to go today, imperial japan accept -- attacked pearl harbor. we remember. "varney and company" is about to begin. stuart: all fired up. all fired up. one thing we've got to check on tuesday morning is futures because look at this. this is action on the upside. apple market watcher this tuesday morning, mister super bowl as we like to call him,
9:04 am
what is fueling this latest rally? >> quite a few things. as you already mentioned the latest variant being not too deadly, causing very mild symptoms, is actually a tremendous sign for everyone in that the lifecycle of the virus is as it progresses, it wants to live forever, it much less deadly and more transmissible. it is much less deadly than the last variant, the next will be less deadly. it means we are almost over the horizon in terms of covid. for over the horizon these vaccines don't become necessary because people will just get the common cold or something less than that. to say that is good news is an understatement. stuart: i've got limited time, a what about question.
9:05 am
what about the federal reserve, they will raise interest rates, would that interfere with this rally. >> what will slow stocks down is the market's view on the level of tightening the fed will take place. the first three or four rate hikes are stimulative. interest rates go to one.5% that gives banks an incentive, what they need to be looking for balance sheet runoffs, quantitative tightening. after the taper, bonds rolloff the $8 trillion balance sheet or let them roll off. there's multiple contraction and will earnings growth outpace that multiple contraction? that happened this year.
9:06 am
the s&p trading at 20 times. if we are out of 18 or 19 in the middle of the year, 20% earnings, we have to see, that's what we are looking for is balance sheet run off. stuart: the technical explanation of the bull run continues. >> the bottom is not going to fall out but we may be in for lower returns, mid to high single digits in equity markets and if the fed slows down we are off to the races again. stuart: mister super bowl, see you again soon. interesting story about bitcoin, the price is 51,000 just over that was a man who claims he invented bitcoin and scored a major win in court.
9:07 am
how much money does this guy get to keep? >> $50 billion at today's bitcoin price. his name is craig right and he made 1.1 million bitcoin. the jury ruled he did not owe half of that to the family of his deceased business partner. really technical trial because the jury had so many questions how bitcoin and crypto currency's work and took one time to deliberate, why this is important is because users, the first ever created. right raised the tenet that i'm the founder of bitcoin. skeptics are not so sure, the jury didn't rule on that but if he is enthusiasts say, to prove you have those early tokens and could affect their price. stuart: he won in court. lauren: he says a lot of it is going to charity. stuart: he has a lot to pass
9:08 am
along to charity. it is safe to say that elon musk is not a fan of president biden's build back better plan. lauren: i love elon musk. the house past $1.8 trillion social spending and climate bill which offers a tax credit of as much is 12,$500 for buying thes built by union workers, didn't hold back. >> i would say honestly, it didn't happen. i don't know. we don't think about it at all really. it might be better for the past.
9:09 am
>> hands off, $7 billion go to charging stations, the private companies build the charging stations so leave my money alone, don't tax me to death. nobody needs these credits. stuart: he knows how to get a headline. lauren: we love his politics. stuart: not sure it is politics. he's a climate warrior in the extreme. i'm going to move on. president biden will speak with russia's president putin in an hour. biden says he will make it clear there are very real costs if russia takes a reaction against ukraine. todd pyro joins me. biden did hold china's feet to the fire. should we expect them to hold russia's feet to the fire? >> let's preface this by saying every american regardless of party should be rooting for resident biden today.
9:10 am
we are americans. but.dot. the afghanistan debacle set up what we are seeing today, we talk about the afghanistan debacle, how it would impact foreign policy for years to come. obviously china thinks we are weak, they think they can take advantage of us and today's the first opportunity to see what russia is going to do going forward. a high-stakes meeting. we need president biden to remain tough and resolute in the face of vladimir putin. the question is will he do it? the second question is how he'll we do it? stuart: an op-ed in the wall street journal, one of mister pruden's favor genetic strategies is to tempt american officials into pompous declarations and then humiliate them. pompous declarations we are going to make them hurt with these sanctions, that could be setting up humiliation from putin later. >> we are halfway there, we got
9:11 am
the declarations, see what happens, 175,000 troops as reported in some outlets. i believe if you read the rhetoric, the military response is always on the table from the us but in the same breath we are probably not going to use it. you lost your leverage. the first 11 months of this administration has been leverage loss from day one. stuart: what would trump have said in the same situation? >> he would have had bluster but at the end is a putin knows the trump might have backed up as a result. can't do what you for tends to do. stuart: you have been following the story, more of vice president harris's staffers coming forward with complaints was one of them says with kamala you have to put up with the constant about the soul destroying criticism and her lack of confidence so you are constantly propping up a bully and it is not clear, that is dramatic stuff.
9:12 am
multiple staffers have left. can she recover? >> i don't think that i don't think the democratic machine wants her to recover. this is part of a push to get buttigieg on the limited bench in the game for 2024. we all agree if the results were great we could all deal with a bully as a boss. i'm thinking of teams here, the patriots don't love bill belichick, a boatload of superballs, kamala harris is calling 23% not because people don't like her, but hasn't accomplished anything with her pulpit. stuart: 28%. >> it is below 30. that's not good. stuart: check those futures, the nasdaq up 271. the laundry list, hunter biden makes its way to the briefing room, the administration wants nothing to do with it.
9:13 am
>> the president's son is not an employee of the federal government and i point you to his representatives. united has time or interest in exploring a reading the book. stuart: maybe so but that's not the end of the push to get answers on the subject. a parting shot, mayor deblasio in poses a vaccine mandate for all private-sector workers and expands indoor vaccine requirements for children as young as 5. new york, new york. ♪♪ ir backs.

9:19 am
doctor bob is with me. may i express the opinion this vaccine mandate is a disaster and totally unnecessary? what say you? >> this is going to make it extremely difficult for small businesses to stay above the waterline because if you lose employees right now it is difficult to find replacements so this mandate i don't think is necessary, if based on the omicron variance we don't think it is necessary. at the bad move. stuart: bring us up to speed on omicron. we believe it is fast-moving but much less severe. this at some it up with what we know so far? >> that is right. omicron is very transmissive, 5 times or transmissible than delta but the people who have gotten that infection behaved as though they had the common cold. the coronavirus is a cause of the common cold. what this means in the development of viral mutants, i
9:20 am
can't say this is a highly up regulated mutants. it may be one of those that is in between high and low. it may peter out, it may provide us with some form of immunity we've not seen hereto for but we are not as concerned about the omicron as we would be leave but it is going to take two weeks to find out where we go with this. stuart: four or five weeks ago we were reporting 75,000 new cases a day. three weeks ago it was 80,000. two weeks ago it was 90,000. now it is over 100,000 new cases a day. the caseload is increasing. is that cause for concern as winter approaches? >> we predicted this for a while, this is mostly the delta variant, causes a nasty illness, cluster in your home's for thanksgiving, warm places
9:21 am
with vaccinated, unvaccinated people, no mask wearing and going to christmas where we see christmas parties and shows and all sorts of things which we expected a spike in the wintertime. i hope it is not going to be over-the-top. that would be a bad thing but mostly delta variant and not omicron. stuart: we are experiencing 1000 deaths per day. who are those people? elderly people? people who are vulnerable with disabilities? who makes up that death list every day? >> largely the unvaccinated. 99% of those patients to dyer unvaccinated, people with comorbidities, heart disease, severe diabetes, chronic lung disease, most folks over 65 are vaccinated. we are seeing a younger trend,
9:22 am
younger people, very sick. stuart: thank you for straightening things out and having such clarity. appreciate that very much. south korean officials are using the omicron variant to force teams to get vaccinated. tell me more. >> kids between 12 and 17 are not fully vaccinated, the government says they can't do certain activities, that is ultimately a threat, vaccination among teenagers as the variant takes root. 92% of south korea's adult vaccination fully vaccinated. teens 30% and they want the number to go up and they make you register for your vaccine on your phone so they track your number. south korea knows who has been vaccinated. stuart: they can contact you and follow you. i wonder if that will come here. i don't think it will. i don't think so. >> i wouldn't be surprised if it does.

are running time to bring in a bull investor. that man is david lefkowitz. you say the s&p, one year from now will be at 5100. right now it is at 4100. make your case. >> this is still an environment where we want to buy the dips in the market. we are waiting more data on the omicron variant and how effective the vaccines will be on it. even in new vaccines they will be in the market by the middle of next year. in pretty large values. that should to the economy. consumers in great shape. jobs are plentiful.
9:28 am
cash is plentiful on consumer balance sheets and record profits. there's a lot of momentum in the economy. the only thing change is the fed. the fed is beginning to pivot, to withdraw this accommodation, they are not moving to tight monetary policy but that is down the road. stuart: that is my what about question. what about the fed? it does raise rates and when the fed raises rate stock prices either plateau or come down some. what about tax increases? capital gains tax increases may be coming down the pike. could they have a negative effect on the ball market? >> let's take the fed. in early stages of the fed tightening cycle the risks are not that large. what is crucial is when do people start to see an impact in terms of higher mortgages or
9:29 am
businesses pay more for loans. when does access to financing become more challenging? if we are moving interest rates from 0 to a quarter of a point, it's not going to have a huge impact on the economy but something to worry about down the road. taxes, the house bill doesn't have a capital gains tax increase. i don't think it would be too troubling for the market even if there was one in the tax increases they do have in the bill would probably trim corporate profits by 2 or 3 percentage points, hiring commanders, those people don't change their spending patterns so i think this economy will absorb that and there is spending to offset those tax increases so we are looking at a fed stimulus. stuart: you have been right so far. i've been ringing my hands with
9:30 am
you for months. you always reassured me and you've been right because we bounced back from last week's selling. thanks for being with us. hope to see you again before christmas and willing to the new year. 15 seconds to go, clapping and cheering, desperate to get trading. they are going public on the new york stock exchange switching from the nasdaq to the big board and the ceo will be with us later on this program. it is 9:30, we are up and running expecting a gain of 300 points. that's what we have, the dow is up 333, 35,500. the gain is one%. s&p 500 the gain yesterday, up another one and a 12:45%. the nasdaq, solid gain yesterday, up one.89%, 15,500. look at big tech.

9:33 am
don't they have a camera issue? >> we are not calling a recall yet. they have to replace 700 fold the autopilot cameras on us-made models of the model x, doing it for free. the cameras in the front fender captures the blind spot you need for autopilot. that's a tricky subject for elon musk because of some of the crashes and that's why you don't see a recall because it has negative connotations. stuart: investors don't care. it is up 3%. >> first time tesla is up. stuart: take that back. bumble, the online dating people where women take the lead and morgan stanley says they have room to run. >> jpmorgan, upgraded bumble to await, $55 price target, a meeting with management and they said only a quarter of the

near-term catalyst. i saw the stock down 11% the big turnaround now, see if anything happened we don't know about. stuart: that little computer of yours, see what the computer says. here is a turnaround. buzz feed on their debut were down. today they are up a little. lauren: yesterday they were down 50%, close 11%, very volatile because there's only a small chunk of chairs that were trading so you see outside moves coming back to%. stuart: five minutes into a tuesday morning rally following a monday rally. these are the dow winners, intel right up front, 6.4% to the upside. american express on the list, so as apple and goldman on the list. turn around to face the audience. the s&p 500 winners if i can see them. lauren: on the tomorrow.

i have to look that up. stuart: nasdaq winners, apple is on their coming until the top of the list. lauren: adobe and micron. the chips doing well on the intel mobile. lauren: it is a rally, dow industrials are up 385 points. show me the 10 year treasury yields, one.6%, price of gold below $1,800, $17.80 to be precise, bitcoin above 50,000, 51, 495 to be precise. where is loyal, oil is at 7160, 3% higher, natural gas, relatively warm fall and natural gas is down in price, a little bit today, 3.7, 375 per million british thermal units, not expensive. of the weather turns cold that
9:37 am
number will rise. the price of a gallon of gas would be regular across the country, 335 and in california it is for 69. >> gas is down a nickel. i'm not cheerleading that. it has come a long way but it is coming down. stuart: it continues to come down. only time will tell. let me tease the rest of the show was the white house as it is getting tough on china by not sending a diplomatic mission to the beijing olympics. >> this is an indication that it cannot be business as usual, not sending a diplomatic delegation send that message. stuart: is a diplomatic boycott of the other pics tough enough? i ask the wall street journal's bill mcgurn later on. does your job bring you joy? if not, prince harry says you should quit. that from a guy who quit his own family. more on that. halfway through from half an hour away from a high-stakes showdown between president

9:43 am
minutes into the trading session, nasdaq composite up 317 and then this, president biden and president putin of russia will hold a call at the top of the hour. larry kudlow joins me. larry, you were in the trump administration and you know what goes on in the final -- biden doesn't project the image of strength that mister trump did. will that have consequences? >> it may. after the afghanistan debacle i think it is essential. i speak as an american, these are american interests and long-term interests. not just politics in the biden administration but this is a case you have to project and show resolve, resolve, not concessions. concessions will embolden putin. i will give you an example. in 201711 met with trump at mara lago, their first meeting and it was dicey. they had a lovely dinner and then they served donald trump's
9:44 am
favorite chocolate cake and while he and xi and the rest of us were eating chocolate cake dessert trump ordered bombing of syrian airfields to stop the criminal assad from gassing his own people, that is strength hand xi found out about that, that's called strength. another point right now, let's not get tied up in diplomatic stalling. on the floor of the senate is a bill that -- an amendment to the national defense authorization. biden should throw his support towards restoring the lord stream 2 sanctions. he ended that. it was a gift to putin, a sign of weakness, concession. right now he should restore
9:45 am
that sanctions and raise the issue with of much tougher sanctions, widespread, high-value sanctions on banking, sanctions on all oligarchs, sanctions on trading and so forth and so on and why not make america the best energy independent -- instead of promoting saudi and russian drilling why don't we promote american drilling? that's the language russia understands. their only source of revenue. stuart: your suggesting our president should be more aggressive, to push hard on pruden but he's not that kind of president. he doesn't come from that position of strength when she comes from a position of weakness. it will be hard to project that strengthens press hard on putin.
9:46 am
>> i don't want to prejudge. the afghanistan debacle really set american interests back and again, at this point, this phone call in an hour or so, i did biden to perform well. i to show strength and resolution and to make it very clear to putin that the united states will take action if putin invades the ukraine or fosters some kind of coup d'état and so forth. obama sat idly by and watch russia take over crimea. that was a huge mistake. i to biden who is our president, politics should stop at the shoreline, i did him to be tough and resolute. i tim to show putin what we the united states can and may and will do if putin doesn't pull back. 175,000 troops on the border of
9:47 am
ukraine. have you ever seen anything like this, the chinese are listening and watching carefully with respect to taiwan and other actions that are going on in that part of the world and elsewhere so this is hugely important and i'm begging president biden to show resolve, take some actions right away and put our best foot forward. stuart: i have to ask about the new vaccine mandate being imposed by new york city mayor bill deblasio. it is extreme, i think it is ruinous. what say you? >> the good news is it is christmas time. he will be gone in a few weeks.
9:48 am
stuart: and the incoming mayor will cancel all of these things. >> i've spoken to eric adams who has a different view. deblasio is the worst mayor in the history of new york city and that is saying something but he will be gone in a couple weeks and you and i can wave our handkerchiefs. stuart: glad you and did it on a positive note because that is how we should do it. you are all right. kudlow weekdays 4:00 pm eastern only on fox business. china threatened retaliation after the biden administration announced a diplomatic boycott of the olympics. what will they do? >> they say they will retaliate for our disrupting of the limbic games but offered no clue as to what those countermeasures look like. are we calling their bluff? would us allies join the diplomatic boycott of the
9:49 am
olympics? new zealand has in the sense that they are blaming covid for not sending a government official but it is a nice excuse, don't get that picture of the new zealand authorities doing the handshake on tv with anybody, we will see what anybody else does but to this point, what is the possibility of the games being removed? because the athletes are not safe. stuart: at this point it is late in the game with 7 or 8 weeks to go, february 3rd they part. don't see how you can move them in time. it is not going to happen. thank you very much indeed. a big city mayor has three primary responsibility is, education, security, prosperity. new york's outgoing mayor has failed on all 3 counts, that's the subject of my taken 10 minutes. the senate taking on a bill barring the president's vaccine mandates. it may well pass. wyoming senator john barrasso is with me to discuss that in

culmination lot of steps of serious china policy, designed to make xi xinping think twice about his aggression around the world but instead it is likely to be a substitute for a real china policy which i think is what it is for the biden administration. they're trying to make a gesture, largely meaningless, but to show they're doing something. look, we have china developing new weapons that we saw. we see them interfering in taiwan east airspace. we saw them preventing filipino marines being resupplied in a disputed area in the south china sea. there is a lot going on there and the biden administration has no coherent response. i think right now the priority has to be to help taiwan defend itself. it is the freest chinese society in the world. if china takes it over it

10:09 am
quickly. i'm sure you agree with that? >> well, unfortunately i do agree with that stuart. look what happened last year in texas when we went to wind and solar, all of a studden they had a cold-snap. this guy is not talking about something that might happen in the future. it is already happening today. that is the problem. we're too willing to throw our own workers under the bus when we go away to the big climate exchanges we'll adhere to these rules but let everybody else pollute. we throw these people, middle class under the bus that work in these industries, number one, but number two, because of revolution, not evolution. we make things way more expensive than they should be to switch over to wind and solar that cannot handle our energy grid. that is when social unrest comes in, people make choices about food or fuel. heat or fuel. that is a recipe for disaster right there we're doing it to ourselves. we're doing it to the middle class. it will be another big transfer

10:12 am
lauren: incentives, $435 million over two decades if they meet certain targets. this is a win for north carolina. typically the car plants go to south carolina. the fact that batteries are made in the u.s., recent polls have shown a lot of americans are not quite ready for an electric vehicle but they will be more ready when the batteries come from the united states and not china. that is good news. stuart: i didn't know that. we'll take it. lauren: batteries come from the u.s. stuart: children, kids, as young as five will have to show proof of the jab at new york city restaurants if they want to get in and eat. andy puzder will deal with that in our next hour. it is amazing what they're doing in new york. white house dodges questions about hunter biden's sale of chinese assets. roll tape. >> first attorney says he finally divested from the chinese investment fund controlled by state-owned entities. can you commit to basic transparency about that

stuart: hillary, got it. thank you very much indeed. we're waiting to hear and i'm sure you will give you anything. christian whiton is here to break it down. christian, what does biden consider success combing out of this meeting? what does he want? >> certainly hasn't defined it. certainly hasn't explained it to the american people. you see bipartisan failure in washington. no one is explaining to the american people what u.s. interests are in ukraine which are very, very limited. i suppose biden could take it as success if russia didn't invade ukraine. of course they will have achieved a goal nonetheless which is to show they can invade ukraine and to intimidate ukraine. what russia really wants out of this ukraine not to become a member of nato. that is a red line for them. unlike us when vladmir putin says he has a red line he means it. another red line for them, they don't want any u.s. missiles in ukraine that would probably lead
