3:00 pm
enjoy the innovations which means it'll be a great deal of money to be made in this is a terrible thing to do to panic like this because the fed will raise interest rates 1%. he raised them over the same. a 7%. charles: have confidence and you make money listen to peter. it's been too long i'll talk to you later let's bring in carol because sony she is and for liz claman. i'm buckling up for this one. >> i think everybody needs to buckle up the numbers are dropping more. you are looking at a sea of red at this hour as traders take profits following the three-day holiday weekend oldman sachs at one point took 200 points of the dow they missed on profit in the quarterly earnings report that we saw the dow, the s&p 500 and nasdaq all in the red, the dow
3:01 pm
is down for four s&p 62 and nasdaq down to 69. what in a half percent plus losses as you can see for the s&p and the nasdaq. it's been rough as the markets are tumbling, microsoft is answering a call of duty buying activision blizzard is $69 billion history making deal in our floor show traders are ready to discuss it all plus the disguise the airlines versus the telecom over 5g we will have a live report from chicago o'hare of the major carriers calling a catastrophic aviation crisis about to unfold in one days time. real estate reality it is still a sellers market big time but could the fed rate hikes shift the dynamic in the coming months will ask executive chairman howard, fox business exclusive.
3:02 pm
i am cheryl casone he i am in for liz claman, let's go through the countdown everybody. >> this is a rude awakening for traders and for all of you at home you're just getting back to work after three-day holiday weekend yet the computer off now were looking for a touchdown and we were looking for a touchdown goldman sachs missed the analyst for the fourth quarter numbers operating expenses search 23% on increased pay for wall street workers the good ipo numbers and still have good m&a. investment banking was decent but they're still getting hit today the bank is the biggest on the dow and s&p 500 major industries getting slammed with bond yields added to your high you have the tenure in particular 1.86% and as you can see 1.87% were sitting at the highest levels for the ten year that we haven't seen since january 2020 before the pandemic
3:03 pm
began. the prospect for higher interest rates has weighed on tech stocks in particular and value as you can see all of the major names apple, amazon, meta platforms, formerly facebook all of these names are in the green, the high flyers for 2021 still keep flying or get killed if you will in 2022 because of the fed raising rates were gonna talk about that throughout the show but those names are under pressure let's go back to microsoft this stock is down not a surprise they did announce they would buy call of duty video game maker activision blizzard $68.7 billion in all-cash deal activision blizzard with the other videogame companies are moving higher on the news this is what you expect to see because activision is getting hit by microsoft the entertainment both of those names are trending higher in tandem with what were
3:04 pm
seen at electronic cards more than 4% and its jumping that is a french videogame maker one to watch by the way then we will talk about the global oil benchmark crude moving about $88 a barrel the highest we seen since 2014 gonna see at $100 a barrel call, thinking goldman sachs may came out with a earnings let's get out to the floor show larry is with me i would get your reaction with regards to goldman sachs and the rate hikes. >> putting into perspective the first had in seven quarters and goldman sachs is coming off a phenomenal 20212021 shares, that is more than double 2020 and outsize return on equity of 23%
3:05 pm
in the third best-performing stock in the dow of 45% only behind home depot and microsoft. i think it's one of those things long-term is a good stock and a lot of reliance on. investment banking and wealth management and less on the yield curve. goldman sachs will recover from this. cheryl: let me bring you into this conversation scott let's go back to big tech. really getting hit again we've seen this story play out let's 0 in on microsoft that's the news of the day with activision $68.7 billion deal. the reports that david is only going to stay through completion of the deal does not affect anything? >> i don't think it affects that much. microsoft has the new windows 11 platform they're moving forward
3:06 pm
and expanding in increasing the capacity. one of the big attractive features of windows 11 is a streaming it can do. you introduce gaming and faster internet speeds and you have a mega platform. this is a great combination going forward. i think they're making a good deal and obviously they thought this over very, very well because i can integrate it in people with be able to do things that they haven't been able to do before on their pcs. maybe you won't need an xbox to go into competitive gaming. cheryl: your right is printed out globally but more in large companies are trying to get into gaming that's why anybody who makes the game so the hotter players that's what you don't want to block technology right now. let me go back to you larry on
3:07 pm
oil i gotta pick this up we talk so much about inflation in the country now are seeing wti and brent seven year heil higher for oil prices and if this trickles through to the gas pump in a meaningful way four bucks a gallon on average at some point this year which meeting called for in this country that adds to all the pressure on the supply chain, the consumer, et cetera. >> exactly the highest level since 2014 and the thing is the market is underestimated with demand for oil it is still there it is not a prepaid debit levels but it is really close. when you have stockpiles, gasoline stocks they have gone up but crude stocks continue to go down and have so every week. the demand picture is still there on the other hand opec plus under delivered on the
3:08 pm
production target and it's not any fault of their own there's been problems in nigeria and libya they vowed to increase production by 400,000 barrels a month that has not come close to happening and other issues with iran the big wildcard the world hoping they've come to an agreement and get their oil back on the market. it's almost like a perfect storm combined with the fact that demand for oil has not fallen off as much as people have thought. cheryl: it makes energy sector attractive to buy. we have a guest coming on that will tell us that. real quick before i let you go back to the financials tomorrow we will get bank of america morgan stanley and round out the reporting season for the financials. this is not what we expected
3:09 pm
going into the earnings season from the big banks basically i said this morning i was looking for my touchdown from goldman sachs and i did not get one from j.p. morgan. tomorrow's bank of america can they take us out of this? >> the thing is they have a little bit better of a chance because there into the banking, here's the thing interest rates are going higher that should be better for the banks and the bank stocks are not reacting to that. that is a little bit of a concern also as was mentioned before costs are going up labor costs are going up and that is impacting goldman sachs as well if this is happening at the other banks, were all trying to remain competitive it can make the numbers really interesting and people really need to pay close attention to the details not just to the headline numbers. cheryl: goldman sachs that gain 45% 2021, the entire sector had a strong great year with interest rates going higher at
3:10 pm
some point i think that will help these guys, we shall see larry, scott, great to have you both here on a marketing like we had today going on. we have more breaking news, let's get to this right now the major telecom the linking first in their 5g battle with the airlines for verizon and at&t say they will voluntarily delay their 5g tech rollout after major u.s. carriers warned of a catastrophic aviation crisis if wireless carriers move forward with the plan deployment tomorrow. the 5g signals risk interfering with safety equipment the pilots rely on to take off in inclement weather grady trimble is at chicago's o'hare in the latest response from the wireless carriers. >> already some international airlines like japan air, air emirates and a few other canceled flights to and from the
3:11 pm
u.s. tomorrow over concerns of the 5g rollout, here in the u.s. the major airlines spent the first few days of this week putting pressure on the telecom companies as was government officials saying that the rollout of 5g could cause chaos for flyers it seems that putting pressure on those people paid off because now at&t and verizon as you said will delay trading on towers around certain runways at&t says they're frustrated in their work by the faa inability to do what 40 countries have done which is safely deploy for 5g technology without disrupting aviation services they say they're launching towers everywhere else as planned with the exception of the limited number of powers he reports the airlines say that 5g signal could bear with safety instruments with mass cancellation of passengers and cargo flights president biden releasing the statement that he's thankful for verizon and
3:12 pm
at&t for agreeing to delay the airports, this agreement he says will avoid devastating disruption to passenger travel, cargo operation and not a cabernet while allowing 90% of tower deployment as scheduled were starting to see the cancellations come in from the international flights but it does seem the worst fears the airline was discussing over the 5g rollout have been avoided because the horizon at&t's decision not to turn on the towers near airports across the u.s. cheryl: probably a safe decision for now. grady trimble in chicago, thank you. much more on the battle between airlines in the sec tomorrow for sec chairman is going to join "the claman countdown" tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. eastern time. the amazon china in trouble but the feds over national security

3:20 pm
case of covid in the age of omicron what kind of destruction does that mean. >> the entire argument is nonsense it's politics coming from xi jinping were portly the biggest threat to supply-chain is with china 0 covid policy and what can happen in the first quarter with omicron the chinese government with the western government does not have them would never use in terms of shutting down and locking down everything that may not work to omicron because it's so transmissible and worked in previous variance and will see if it works now if it's causing enormous amount of stress in the system that means there's a potential in the first quarter you could have widespread lockdowns and widespread apply chain crashes route china and the global system. we are looking at the potential for q1 to be the worst since the pandemic began. cheryl: we got growth numbers about gdp 8% plus for the year, 4% in q4.
3:21 pm
moving on to where the country is now what happens with the olympics there is next month there's been diplomatic boycotts but now you're facing a situation with all the athletes and big corporations left and right that will be heading to beijing and made all of the 0 covid policy from xi jinping if you will. >> the olympics must be a success with china negative light on the chinese communist party during the year in which you will not have a much more politically sensitive year than 2022 because of the end xi jinping will be courted by that by the party congress next fall, the other pics have to be a success which means they will crackdown lockdowns, do whatever they do for the show to not be going on and not be a disaster
3:22 pm
they won't cancel anything they will push forward and after that they have some wiggle room to figure out omicron before things get more dicey at the end of the year with a politically sensitive run up to the party congress which is always very politically sensitive. they have to get to the olympics they have time to play with policies and a very sensitive end of the year 2022 is tougher china no question. cheryl: it's really tough other manufacturing sector. leland miller thank you for being here. we appreciate it. we are going to move on to this jesse james butch cassidy, the dalton gangs some of the most notorious train robbers but the pandemic supply chain is a new breed of outlaws we will head to the golden state for the rising rate of robberies on the rails let's take a look at the big board as you can see we are escalated and are selling, 514, the lot for the dow was 649 the nasdaq, s&p solidly in the red
