9:00 am
nasdaq is the one to watch today, as mark suggested, indicated lower by 232. it is those high growth tech stocks that will take the hit here if we we see the kind of rate rises that you gentlemen are suggesting, and that's what this market is focused on. james freeman, mark tepper, thank you so much, really appreciate your time. "varney & company" is up next. stuart, it's yours. stuart: good morning, jackie, good morning, everyone. there is there is only one morn morning story, and it's inflation. in the last year consumer prices have gone up 7.5%. inflation is running hot. this is another report showing the worst inflation in over 40 years. and this is the inflation which everyone feels. food prices, housing, transportation all up sharply. question, who gets the blame for this? we'll discuss that later. it looksic -- looks like inflation is speeding up, it's
9:01 am
getting worse. 7% in january, 7 -- i'm sorry, 7% in december, 7.5% in january, not good. here's the market reaction. and i'll start with interest rates because everyone's trying to figure out what jay powell's going to do about this. the yield on the 10-year treasury, 1.99. awfully close, a fraction away from 2%. that is a milestone. the dow industrials and the market here down about 150 at the opening bell, the s&p down 45. but look at the nasdaq. with the yield on the 10-year treasury close to 2%, almost there, the nasdaq's down, what, 250 points, 1 is.7%. -- 1.7%. bitcoin down $1,000, 43,8. that is the price of bitcoin right now. let's see what the white house has to say about these inflation numbers later on this morning. that is a political question. also in politics the news is dominated by ten democrat states retreating from mask mandates, but the white house drags its
9:02 am
feet. the c, the c and the teachers union, they want to keep the masks on -- cdc. and then there's new york city, new york state, the governor here, she will allow adults to take masks off, but school children must suffer until next month when governor hochul will reconsider. where's the science in that? where's the consideration for children who are least vulnerable ask most damaged? and this from new york city if as well, brazen shoplifting is so bad that convenience stores are locking everything up, and i mean, everything. it's not easy living and working here. florida looks more attractive by the day, doesn't it? trucker disruption continues in canada, and it's having an impact. ford and toyota suspend if production at two factories. can't get the componentings. if the truckers did the same thing here in america, would they get public support? my opinion is killing the vax mandate is a worthy goal, but the blockade tactic will backfire with public opinion.
9:03 am
here's a milestone. the prime minister's approval rating -- the president's approval rating has dropped below 40%. this is from real clear politics. 39% lower than any other president at this stage of their presidency. and wait until you factor in today's inflation news. it's thursday, february the 10th, 2022. very and company is about to begin. ♪ -- "varney & company" is about to begin. many. ♪ ♪ ♪ whoa, yeah, kick start my heart -- stuart: inflation is topic one on the markets, and it's politics today as well. rising prices are part of the reason for the president's sinking approval rating. there you have it. 7.5% year on year consumer price index. okay, lauren, let's get into the main points. lauren: that's the most since february of 1982. if thed fed thought the trend would be their friend that
9:04 am
prices would start to come down, they're dead wrong. if you look month over month, december to january, they rose .6% overall and at the core level. so where were prices the hottest? gasoline are up 40% in the past year. used cars up almost 41%. food up 7, and i want to talk about shelter for a second. the number says 4.4%. that's the single biggest component of cpi, but i think it's widely understated because if you look at home prices and rents, they're both up well into the double digits on an annual basis. so that's the story. inflation's actually hotter than 7.5%. one more inflation print before the fed meets this march, ready, set, go by how much in march is the question for investors. stuart: inflation is not turning out to be transient. it's getting worse. lauren: we thought it might start to come down, that month over month number, which in a way is her important, and that's still moving in the wrong direction.
9:05 am
stuart: left-hand side of the screen, this is how the market is shaping up. michael lee is here with us this morning. michael, i'm looking at the nasdaq. it is way, way down. you're not bullish on big tech today, are you? >> well, you know, stuart, this is probably the time to start looking at some names that have been beaten up and the start looking in here. i think the reaction you're seeing in the markets, you had a rally over the last week that's been with pretty strong, particularly yesterday and earlier this week -- stuart: wait a minute if, michael, you've got to -- come on. you've got to address this. 7.5% inflation over the past year, and ad fed which has got -- a fed which has got to do something about it. you're telling me to go in there and buy stocks before we know what the fed is going to do about this 1.99% on the 10-year treasury? wouldn't it be extremely dangerous to jump in today? >> well, stuart, these are the days that you want to jump in.
9:06 am
and what you're seeing in the market, i think the rally that we've seen over the last few weeks from the lows of the year is they were expecting a much better number today and for inflation to cool. inflation did not cool this number. the month over month and year-over-year numbers will improve if over the year. that doesn't mean prices are going to come down, but the odds of the fed going 50 basis points in march went from about 25 to 30% before this print to over 50% after that print. there's rumors out there -- not rumors, but the fed fund futures briefly predicted six rate hikes this year from four after this print. so when there is this much, this far ranging of views of what the fed's going to do, you're going to have markets all over the place. i think we are still mid cycle, and many say that the fed kills the bull market, the fed kills the economy. that's not true. debt bubbles kill the economy, and the fed leads the bursting
9:07 am
of those debt bubbles. we're not there yet. the fed is going to have to be active throughout the next 6-9 months to show that they're serious, okay? but at that point you're going to see much lower year-over-year numbers from from a combination of things happening. higher base effects -- go ahead. stuart: no, sorry. i understand where you're coming from. but i'm extremely nervous about buying into a stock market at these high levels when the federal reserve, you know, is going to raise interest rates. and you can't be sure that inflation will come down significantly. i'm sorry, michael, i've got to leave it there. i shouldn't do that to you, you should have the last word, but i'm very sorry, or michael. such is life. >> no problem, stuart. stuart: i've got to move on. just take a look at the pictures on your screen. those pictures were taken by one of our producers who lives in
9:08 am
new york city. you can see that every product in this duane reid store, it's locked away. it's so bad that al sharpton in new york city is calling on the mayor to fix it. watch this. >> you go to a local pharmacy, duane reid or a rite-aid, any of them, ask you've got to get someone to help assist you. they have a little button there. you hit the buzzer, and the guy come over and unlocks your toothpaste. [laughter] >> what did i miss that we now have to lock up toothpaste? cannot have a culture where people are just at random just robbing and stealing, and it's out of control. stuart: well, well, well, al sharpton. he's the man who pushed for all these soft on crime policies in the first place, and now they're affecting him. sean duffy, this is a big day. we've got inflation, we've got the market falling out of bed, and we show you photographs of everything locked up in duane reid. but that's what it's like living in new york city today. go. >> and that's across the
9:09 am
country. al sharpton was one who supported the riots during the summer of love and supported cori bush and no police. what do you think is going to happen? there's no repercussions for being a thief. so these stores, they go out of business or lock their goods up. and it's interesting that al sharpton comes to this, stuart, only when his toothpaste is locked up. when it affects him. this is going way too far. we have to address the crime problem. but americans and people in his community have been dealing with this for a long time, and they do want law enforcement on the street. stuart: okay. let's get to something much more serious, frankly. the inflation number today, 7.5% year on year inflation. and that is not included, that fact today is not included in the president's approval rating dropping to 39%. this is according to the real clear politics average of scores. sean, what's the impact of these polling numbers on the democrat party as a it relates to the
9:10 am
president? if are they going to abandon him? >> stuart, this is really bad. we've got to take a step back. how do you address this? cpi, what's driving it is fuel. gas prices. you could open up american oil and gas, easy. it's the most leftist, radical person that you know. they're running this government, and so they believe in crime, in drugs, they don't believe in energy, they believe in green. they're doing crazy things instead of focusing on what we care about like taking off masks and stop mandating vaccines. they're saying what we're going to do is the u.s. citizenship and immigration services has a new mission statement, stuart. they're going to take away any mention of lawful immigration, protecting americans or securing the homeland in exchange for saying we're going to uphold america's promise as a nation of welcome. what the hell is that? i want them to secure america. they're changing course. we have all these supply chain problems, the bridge from detroit over to canada shut down
9:11 am
because of the protests. people focus on a law in florida where they say you can't teach lgbtq issues in kids from kindergarten to fifth grade. pete buttigieg is losing his mind. these guys are so radical, and they don't focus on the issues that we care about, and if they did, their poll numbers would improve, they might have success in november, but they're not going to change course which means a red wave is on the horizon. stuart: and they haven't got a clue what to do about inflation. thanks very much, sean. check futures again, down we're going. look at that, nasdaq is now down better than 2% following that inflation point. you're down 300 points. let's change the subject. what is disney teaching our toddlers? watch this. >> your skin is so much darker than hers. hold it. did that kind of make you feel uncomfortable? stuart: micro-aggression? pete hegseth has small children.

i wonder the he's going to have them watch that. he's here later in the show. all right, witness a moment of pure joy as youngsters are told they can ditch their masks in this class. watch that.

quite there yet in most places. i'm not saying we shouldn't get there. our politicians have done a horrible job of communicating the why, the when and the where of it, and there are some places out there on a local level that i think are in a good place. but when you talk about other countries, they have much higher vaccination and boosting rates, so they're not taking off masks in spite -- stuart: doctor, i don't care about other countries, doctor. with respect. i do not care about other countries -- >> stuart, you just showed israel. you do care -- [inaudible conversations] stuart: i wanted to show people what happens when you liberate children from this ridiculous 8-hour mask wearing a day. look, i think this has been bad public health policy there day one. the lockdowns, the mandates -- >> bad communication, that's for sure. stuart: bad communication, bad policy, doctor. >> well, i respectfully disagree as an african-american man where you look how it disproportionately hits those communities, and we're now in a
9:21 am
place where we're saying, look, it's on you. what i want to see is we continue to encourage people to get vaccinated, get boosted, protect themselves because we're entering a phase where it is going to be about personal responsibility. it is going to be on you. i want your viewers to know the way you protect yourself the best is to get vaccinated and boosted. and you can still choose to wear a mask whether or not you're mandated. that's what it comes down to. stuart: you want me to walk out on the streets of new york city today in a mask? >> not in the street, sir. but if you're inside and you're in a place where the vaccination rates are low, as a doctor, i wear a mask and i have my daughter wear a mask. she's vaccinated, but she's not quite able to be boosted. stuart: i think the people are way out in front of you doctor, and that's a fact. we appreciate your point of view. thank you, doctor. >> yes. stuart: you influence the -- what's this? the influence of the -- i couldn't read it properly. i'm so fired up.

the influence of the freedom convoy in canada is spreading to europe? lauren: can i just chime in here? the people aren't listening to what the health care providers are saying. the kids are not wearing masks outside of schools, so does it even matter? this freedom convoy is about the freedom of choice. hundreds of protesters in at least two french cities now, they're marching to paris, they're marching to brussels, which is the seat of the european union. they want to end covid restrictions, and they want their freedom of choice. here's my take on it. the canadians are the most law-abiding citizens. the french, there's this groundswell -- [laughter] of fatigue, exasperation. and if you notice a couple of things going on in canada that point to that a, the police are avoiding maas arrests, and they're having trouble finding tow trucks to get involved here. the people, despite the polling in canada, really are saying, you know what? we might really be with the truckers here. leave me alone. stuart: exactly. lauren, thank you very much,

9:28 am
not terrible. so we think that this has a chance of turning around a little bit if we can get some better inflation numbers from some of the other things that the fed if will also be looking at a. stuart: do you anticipate better inflation numbersesome. >> not right away, stuart. i think we might be seeing a bit of a peak though here. you know, if we keep going up into these numbers, you know, highest since 1982, the fed is going to have to be a little bit more strip stringent in how they act a. that's going to be a damper. is right now i like where we are. i like picking specific stocks, and i probably hike the broader market a little bit better than the nasdaq. stuart: okay. number of new cases way, way down. the masks are coming off in some states. looks like we are going to speed up the reopening. do you have a reopening trade for us on the market? >> i do. masks coming off tomorrow in my home state and joe biden's home
9:29 am
state, delaware. a big, a big blue state here. so that's a good thing. and the reopening play is ups. i love what ups is doing. i think today, tomorrow may give us the pullback we want to buy it in the 220-222 range. stuart: would you consider a big tech stock today? after all a, they're being sold off vigorously this morning. >> two weeks ago, stuart, we bought apple and amazon right at this time slot right before the market opened. those plays have been great. i think a little bit more pullback will give me a lot more comfort. i like those big tech stocks for the rest of the year, but for right now i'm kind of happy where i am not to add. stuart: you're not buying anything today, are you? >> i am not buying anything yet because i would like to see the first half hour, and then i may be jumping in big. stuart: okay. d.r. barton, brave man, indeed. see you again soon. now look, you see on the
9:30 am
left-hand side of your screen, that's how the market is likely to open. pay particular attention to the nasdaq and big tech. the yield on the 10-year treasury hit 2% earlier, that's very much a negative for nasdaq stocks, big tech in particular. all right. we're about to start trading. it should be tumultuous at least in the early going. i have no idea how we're going to close, but right from the opening bell we're going to be down, and there is the opening bell. it has rung. we are trading. off we go. right from the start the dow is down, what, 285 points, there you go, and is we've got 27 of the dow 30 in the red. clearly in the red are. dow's off 260. the s&p 500, that is down 1.2%, a very significant pullback for the s&p. the nasdaq down 1.7%, okay? earlier this morning it had been down 2%, come back just a little. big tech down across the board. microsoft is down $6. alphabet is down, let's see,
9:31 am
$46. amazon is, 67. meta platforms down 5. that's a selloff in big tech. that's the overall market. nasdaq down in particular as well as big tech. disney, whoa, look at that. let's go -- [laughter] something strong, an upside move in a down market. now, wait a minute. susan, was in the streaming? was it the subscribers or was it the parks? susan: i think all of it, don't you think? streaming was 11.8 million few paid subscribers in the last three months of 2021, so that takes the total to 130 million subs. they're still gunning for as many as 260 million by 2024, so you do the math. netflix has 210, and disney is catching up pretty fast with just two years of existence. parks also impressive, pricing powerment you can raise your prices and people still come in droves, and that's what they did. the parks business back at pre-pandemic levels, doubling their sales from the previous
9:32 am
quarter. i'm not talking about year on year growth, quarter on quoter, she -- quarter. sequential doubling. stuart: that means we are prepared to spend money, because it ain't cheap at those parks. that is adding 56 points to the dow, so we would be down more than 200 -- susan: you multiply it by 6 or 7 because there's only 30 components on the dow. i do want to note that the reason the 10-year treasury crossed 2% is the fact that you have wall street and spreaders -- traders expecting a 50 basis point cut -- or hike, pardon me, in march. 50 basis points. that increased by up up to 50%. half of wall street thinks there's going to be a big move next month. stuart: that's a shock to the system. susan: yeah. stuart: show me twitter, please, because i know they reported earlier. susan: it's interesting. of course, that's what wall street likes, because in terms of earnings it wasn't pretty. you had misses across the board,
9:33 am
profit, sales, users coming in short is. only 217 million daily actives, they're going to do that accelerated program as well, and that's what wall street likes. think twitter, the rest of the big tech selling off because of that 10-year treasury yield crossing 2% for the fist time since august of 2019. stuart: how about coca-cola? >> it was actually down in the premarket, but it's now higher because of the movement of the 10-year treasury yield. value looks good in this type of environment of rising rates. now coke, yes, they made more money in sales to end last year, but guidance was weak heading into this year, and they're complaining about high inflation like a lot of other ceos during this earnings season so far. stuart: what have we got on -- susan: mattel, barbie maker. they beat on sales and earnings, they said that sales will jump high single digits this year. that's pretty impressive. and mattel has beaten six
9:34 am
straight quarters, and i know you're excited about this, the frozen princess is line going to mattel in 2023. stuart: is that a big deal? susan: it adds $400 million to the bottom line. the princess frozen line like elsa? stuart: i thought we were past princesses. susan: no, we love them. stuart: lauren? lauren: i buy a lot of elsa -- susan: there you go. let's talk about canada goose because we are in the winter sales period, and you would think this is a good time for canada goose. $1,000 plus down jackets and parkas. not enough sales, apparently, so they made less money over the winter so far, and they're blaming covid restrictions, especially the zero covid policy in china. stuart: have you ever heard of carhart? outdoor clothing wear for men and women who work outdoors. of. susan: yes. stuart: go for carhart as opposed to the canada goose. susan: is it as warm? stuart: warmer and cheaper and
9:35 am
longer lasting. susan: i don't know if it's urban-approved fashion, that's the problem. stuart: i'd be very surprised if anyone who lives in night as har even heard of ca hart. -- carhart. susan: earnings were pretty goo- [laughter] too, by the way. this is a cloud communications company. when you can't find your uber and stu varney needs to figure out where he is, it helps you make that call on the uber app a. it also works with netflix and other big companies as well. smaller losses, sales were a lot better, and they're guiding for strong growth not only this quarter, but the entire year. and, oh, by the cay -- way, they're cathie wood's eighth biggest holding. stuart: well, she needs a little help. [laughter] susan: you're piling on. stuart: i'm not being facetious, but show me uber. up 2%. are they past omicron?
9:36 am
susan: well, they say they are. and the fact that they're making money which is a trend that only started for uber in the fall. remember that they were struggling to make money in the 14-year company history, right? they finally turned that corner, and the fact that you have ride hailing recovering rather quickly, by the way, up 8% quarter on quarter. i'm not talking about year-over-year, that was a 20% improvement which is kind of a big deal, right? stuart: but they're speeding up quarter to quarter, that's a big deal. susan: and also uber delivery is a growth trend of 30%, so, yeah, it's all pointing in the right direction. stuart: the new ceo for peloton had a kind of zoom meeting, and it went crazy. supersuperyou had the disgruntled employees, 2800 of them are going to be losing their jobs, and those 2800 only gets compensation of a one-year peloton subscriptionment. [laughter] so you have irate employees that flooded into this all-virtual meeting that also had the founder and ceo and former ceo
9:37 am
john foley onboard, and they were just upset. they were flooding the entire virtual meeting with a lot of nasty comments. stuart: didn't go well, did it? susan: no. but i to want to talk to you about one deal, you tell me what this deal is. well, look. stuart: blackstone. i own a thin sliver, on your screen now, down the %. they sold, what, snoop snoop dogg's music? susan: i just really wanted the hear you say that. [laughter] yes. so snoop dogg owns death row records. have you herald of that? stuart: absolutely, i have. of. susan: dr. dre, of course, also where snoop dogg startled his career and tupac. so it's interesting that you have snoop dogg buying death row records. i didn't know that blackstone actually owned death row records. they own mrk entertainment which owns death row records, and that's why they were able to sell it. very eclectic portfolio that a
9:38 am

♪ call me, call me any if, anytime. stuart: that is san francisco. i believe that is the bay bridge. and there's the clock tower -- i think that's what it is. it's only 55 degrees right there right now, and the sun is just coming up. then we've got samsung. they have revealed their new galaxy s22 smartphone. mark spooner has the phone in
9:45 am
his hand, i believe. you've got one with you? yes, you do. >> right here. stuart: so you have this thing, you know what it's all about. what's so good about it? >> okay. so the big news is that samsung is going right after apple with this phone, and what they're trying to do is a few things. one, it's the first galaxy phone with an s10 built in, so they're taking the best part and bringing it over to the s3 line. so you can use that for taking notes, drawing, and it's also good for scribbling text into any field. the handwriting recognition's gotten a lot better. the big news though is actually the cameras, because it's much better in low light. in fact, last night i was taking pictures in almost complete darkness, and what's great is the night mode is so great, they have a new name for it. you get much better details without having to use the flash, and the other big thing is that the display itself, it's a 6.8-inch, and what's amazing about this is that it's even brighter than the iphone 13 pro max outdoors.
9:46 am
it goes up to 1750 -- which basically means even in bright sun light, you're going to have no problem reading this thing, and there's a built in finner print sensor -- fingerprint sensor. the quality of the video, if i head over here, you can see what i took yesterday, and you can get a sense of what the quality of the camera is like as it zooms in here. stuart: okay. that's pretty good. yeah, that really is prettied good. wait a second, you're a professional person who critiques these things. you critique technology. in your opinion, how does that s22 shape up against the iphone 13 if pro? >> i would say that it takes a little bit of guts for samsung to charge more than the iphone 13 pro max because it's 1199, so it's $100 more. but you are getting a little bit more for your money in certain areas. faster charging, 45 watts means you get to 50% in just 20 minutes. the ca -- cameras are great, but
9:47 am
it's really happy to pull people away prosecute iphone because people are -- people away from the iphone because people are happy with it. but i think samsung is definitely starting to catch up. that was one of the few areas they've been behind, the camera, and i'm in the process of doing some head to head testing, and our full ratings review will be on tom's guide over the weekend. stuart: well said. i'll have a look at that. thanks very much for being with us, mark. >> thank you. stuart: the mayor of new york city, eric adams, took his first paycheck in bitcoin. he said he wants to make new york city the center of crypto trading, so why, lauren, is he against crypto mining here? lauren: because he's listening to the local environmental is. and i want to share a quote with you. it comes from a group. bitcoin mining could cost new yorkers millions of dollars in energy bills while kneecapping local business, poisoning water and and filling our air with co2 emissions. if we don't act quickly, we
9:48 am
could become a cancer on communities of color. stuart: i guess now i understand. lauren: the stance is hard to reconcile because you can't have your cake and eat it too. you're actually taking your first three paychecks in bitcoin and ether, but most of those don't exist without the mining operation, so he's got to figure it out. stuart: it is an absolute minefield, it really is. thank you, lauren. the los angeles county sheriff's department may lose as many as 4,000 deputies because of the city's vaccine mandate. the man in charge, sheriff alex villanueva, is fighting that a mandate. by the way, he's in charge of security around the super bowl for this sunday. the country's largest auto show, it's coming to chicago. it's about to open. we're going to take you there for a live preview. what looks good. we'll show you. ♪

stuart: energy price inflation,
9:53 am
you're looking at it. the arm price for a gallon of regular gasoline in america is now 3.48. as we said, it's going up one cent a day, and it's now up exactly $1 from this day last year. democrats, we are told, do indeed have a plan to lower gas prices. i've got to hear this, lauren. lauren: they want to remove the federal gas tax of 18.4 cents a gallon for the rest of the year. great, they recognize there's an inflation problem. they recognize the political consequences of it, but it's frustrating that they're finding alternate solutions right now without acknowledging that their policies caused the problem. also by taking away the federal gas tax, you dig a hole in the highway fund. stuart: yes, you do. a big hole. lauren: that you have to fill. stuart: that's infrastructure. lauren: the solution is causing another problem. stuart: nice turn of phrase there. very good. all right. let's get to the chicago auto show which is about to kick off, and our own grady trimble, he's there. all right, grady, have at a it. what catches your eye?

9:55 am
show is more relevant than ever because supply of vehicles is so tight. they have hundreds of vehicles from 19 manufacturers under one roof, so if the exact vehicle you're looking for isn't available, you can look at other options that you might be able to find on the dealership lot. won't be able to find this one on the dealership lot, but you could buy the motor for if it and put it into your own f-100 if you have one. by the way, the average sales price for a new vehicle these days, $46,400. but the folks at cox automotive say prices have peaked, so there might be good news. prices might stay high, but they will be coming down, folks at cox say. we're going to take this thing for a spin because, well, the electric motors are pretty impressive. they go from 0-60 in how quick? >> five seconds. stuart: i'll take it. that's not bad. lauren: i don't hear anything. stuart: silent too.

10:01 am
interest rates because the yield on the 10 year treasury hit 2% backed off to 198 but interest rates are going up after this report. big tech down across the board. meta-platforms slightly higher because of rising interest rates. bitcoin coming in at 44,$000 per coin as we speak. mortgage rates. are they going up? lauren: 3.69% up from 3.5% the week prior in the year ago 3.7%. freddie mac says this will have adverse effects on homebuyer demand because rates are up there again. stuart: i will repeat the news that broken 8:30 eastern time. inflation, real jump in the inflation rate.
10:02 am
7.5% over the past year. looks to me, digging into those numbers, inflation is accelerating. charles: people are getting nervous, doing bulk buying, the wall street journal had a great piece on this. they don't think anyone has a solution, that is the demand-side driver pushing this. this is eating into 50% of people's discretionary income. this is the breathing room, this tax is enormous and pinching people where they need extra help. stuart: the way they do that is to raise interest rates. >> you want to buy a car, it will hurt once you get behind on inflation. the pain is greatest when it
10:03 am
gets behind where we are. stuart: let's see how this protect the market. gary, you're a stock watcher, what's your reaction? >> inflation numbers terrible. and he will supposedly cure all this, he should be raising rates and stop money printing today. it would look like an act of desperation. financial collapse will be, oil prices going up. oil stocks are strong and because of covid going away. the travel stocks are all over my screen.

i can tell you marriott breaking into new high ground, they are instead, others not so great and if interest rates keep going higher, other areas look decent. stuart: how come the market is coming back. 20 minutes ago, we are down on the dow, 200 points. we are down 65. why has the market come back? do investors think inflation will be tamer come summer in the fed won't raise rates as much as we thought? >> the market is acting better and we get momentum here and i was thinking near to they would hold this up and it is up 60
10:05 am
dow points. there is good reaction to earnings and earnings trump everything. as far as interest rates go, you go to a half and even higher that will provide, it seems the markets have a little momo in here. stuart: haven't used that in a long time. >> i'm here in florida. your interview with doctor adams you were spot on. i've been here this whole time and we've been open forever. disney world was open here before disneyland in california and people are coming around. i wish the rest of the country felt the same way.
10:06 am
stuart: you are talking about the interview with jerome adams. i had ago at him so to speak. glad you were watching. toyota is one of the movers today. lauren: i want to bring you breaking news. another border crossing has been blocked. there is an event in quotes occurring on highway 75 and truckers are stuck 4 hours. stuart: i think public opinion will move against them is a worthy goal, get rid of the mandate but the tactic has big pr problems. what do you say about credit suisse? lauren: biggest quarterly loss in years. he will of the reason. it is timely. banker compensation and restructuring costs. look at the stock. stuart: i see on my prompter
10:07 am
data dog. lauren: when you say cloud and security you are popular so stock is up in a big way if we can give you the ticker. it was up double digits. i want to give you the real numbers. data dog is up 16%. stuart: data dog. i shall remember that. >> you want to stay on the show? calm down, now this. the trucker surprised us all. who would have thought there would be an avery demand for freedom and one of the most peaceful societies on earth,
10:08 am
the in disrupting cross-border trade. american truckers are organizing convoys of their own. they may target the super bowl in los angeles or the state of the union message in dc was the goal is to get rid of the max mandate. it's wrong to fire unvaccinated healthcare workers we were calling heroes and wrong to stop unvaccinated canadian truckers returning home but i have doubts about the convoy and the blockade is a tactic because it causes economic pain and it will shift against the anti-mandate cause. the truckers blockade disrupted the supply of components which imagine the frustration if the super bowl were to be targeted or america's supply chain restrict more by trucker convoys. if your life is disrupted by a political protest it will lose
10:09 am
support. now is not the time to inflict pain. support the goal, adjust the tactics. here is mercedes schlapp to tell me if i'm on the right path or not. will the truckers lose support if lives are disrupted? >> they are walking a fine line but their message is powerful against this liberal almost radical prime minister who refuses to meet with the truckers and blames them and condemns them of hateful rhetoric, they are singing the national anthem and these truckers have a strong message which is we don't want these mandate.
10:10 am
trudeau started the problems with policies like lockdowns, mandates, worker shortages. it is trudeau's fault and i think the fact is if he things he can get away with that i don't think he can and for the truckers they have to manage this carefully but they have every right to protest and speak up because these economic woes started before the convoy started. stuart: i talked to jerome adams saying we should keep going around in masks. i had ago at him. i said these public health policies we have pursued for the last two years are the worst in america's recent history. what say you? >> i agree. we have to understand the mental state our country and the world is in because of the mandates they put in place and
10:11 am
they can't back them up with science so it is fascinating to watch, you have democrat governors abandoning the mask mandate in many states, in massachusetts and new york but it is time to move on. we have the vaccines, therapeutics, omicron is declining a number of cases and people want their lives back and that is the critical point. and for the kids it has been very traumatic. stuart: i know you are fired up. i wish we had another 10 minutes. >> you might jim why he is there. stuart: i have a bubble thing, the queen of england, that and moves. i decided to put it on set.
10:12 am
don't touch. back to the original question. the worst public health policy i've seen in american history. >> and it is creating this absurd fear. in my apartment complex, a little boy riding his bike had glasses and a mask on, his lenses so far the p couldn't see where he was going on the path, he's trying to ride his bike blind. that to me is the perfect metaphor. we have a choice, we keep them out of the mask and it is so good for them to see each other's faces. stuart: the sheriff department could lose thousands of foyers -- employees who refuse to get the jabber. this stunt will be a threat to

force calls that deployment. stuart: according to jen psaki, we are not going to get americans out of kyiv by using troops. >> people should understand the united states doesn't do mass evacuations. we are encouraging them to trust now. stuart: what should we be doing in ukraine? >> we squandered our opportunities here, a long time ago when the first provocation took place in spring we should have increased the number of advisers to the ukraine military, on their shopping list, not just antitank weapons but antiaircraft weapons, anti-ship weapons, and that is
10:21 am
when we should have deployed our forces to reassure our allies and could have begun economic sanctions to get putin's attention the we are not going to put up with this but we squandered those opportunities and this is imprudent's hands. he said to president macron of france that belarus is just an exercise and when the troops completed the exercise as lucas mentioned, they are going home. we will see if that happens. we are coming down to the diplomatic phase still going on. ukraine, russia, france, and journey meeting in berlin and the opportunities for a poetic solution are considerably less but hopefully that turns out something positive but i'm not optimistic. stuart: i want to talk about iran. the white house says iran will
10:22 am
have nuclear material capable of building a bombing two months. what should we do about that? >> the biden administration, the original deal obama made was severely criticized as being inadequate, trump got out of the deal and forced of sanctions on iran. what the biden team did when they came in, they immediately began to not enforce those sanctions. the biden administration looking for appeasement. for a stronger, better nuclear deal and they abandoned those words. what will come out of this nuclear deal if there's an agreement is a worse deal than we had in 2015. the iranian 7 not been
10:23 am
forthcoming about what they are doing secretly. we are in a more dangerous situation because we give them sanction relief. billions of dollars like they did in 2015. they used that money to fuel the consternation and aggressive actions in the middle east. that is what they do. what do they do with this windfall? they will be buying rockets and missiles for hezbollah, to follow in the un and saudi arabia. increase the instability. that is what we are facing. stuart: elections have consequences. general jack keane, appreciate it. brian bromberg, you have been listening to this. if donald trump were still the president i don't think we would be in this mess.
10:24 am
>> the theme is squandered opportunity with russia and ukraine, agree or disagree with trump's policy he was firm and went after these regimes where he knew it would affect. the biden administration has not wanted to do that and we are in a situation, can we do anything? has the ship sailed? in a lot of these cases it looks like it has. we are trying to contain the damage. lauren: those countries are emboldened, iran just tested a missile, 1200 mile range, could hit israel. stuart: we have trouble on a variety of fronts, military policy, inflation, the border. >> elections have consequences and it applies to every one of these issues. stuart: the famous mattress mask, making enormous bets on

10:32 am
to say it. if you want the mainstream view on covid read the new york times, watch cable television but if you want an alternative perspective this is a place to get it and the new culture books to silence dissent and spotify could distinguish themselves but they didn't. stuart: seems to me big tech is trying to put us all in an intellectual straitjacket. do you see it that way? >> this is what george orwell worried about in the form of government, government policy constraining free-speech. what he didn't foresee is the way private companies and culture could be more culturally totalitarian government itself was that the moment we live in but the opportunity spotify missed is an opportunity for someone else to prize free-speech and open debate. i don't agree with what you say
10:33 am
but if i have a podcast platform part of that is to give voices to people i disagree with. they are fed up with censorship. stuart: a lot of companies have to look at their own employees who will revolt if that company puts out material they don't like. they get ambushed from within. >> if you work on a podcasting platform and say i don't like what somebody said i would say express yourself and get back to creating value for the company and if not you should not be working at a podcasting company but a political party. in certain ways leaders are leading their employees, like a parent -- ceos should lead. stuart: they are scared of them. come back soon. brian bromberg. i talked about being put in an
10:34 am

11:02 am
rate. when the market opened it went straight down, recovered a little and went straight down. show me big tech. that is all over the block. we are all down. everything one of the stocks is down. the yield on the 10 year treasury is 2.0 one%. and rates go up like that big tech goes down. now this. living and working in new york is not easy. this program have a soft spot for florida. there are two developments that are ridiculous, hard to believe this is happening in the empire state. these are pictures taken by one of our producers, stores are locking everything up, deodorant, toothpaste, razor blades, batteries, scotch tape. you have to find someone with a key to get what you need.

another month but because phil murphy barely survived he had to attempt to look like he's opening up and they need to create of you of a new normal that running against groups like the teachers unions. the idea that adults can come out of masks the children can't is almost sadistic. teachers unions and others same because of the health of teachers who are vaccinated and boosted i'm sure it all these schools and can wear 3 masks if they like the kids have to stay in masks. stuart: nine the ten democrat states made the switch against mask mandate. the white house is holding out. the white house is behind the democrat governors, they have to catch up at some point and that will be an enormous reversal for president biden.
11:06 am
>> he believes by walking from marine one to the white house outdoors in a mask he setting an example for somebody. that's why the controversy of eric garcetti who can hold his breath for days and days apparently. stuart: sarcasm is a low form of which. >> or stacy abrams who said she was for a moment taking her mask off. virtue signaling is the only signal as you cover inflation, crime, the border, everything else. they are losing grip on what people feel. it is the only pedestal. such an easy offramp. stuart: i want to know if you were to let your children see this, disney's series on disney called rise up, sing out teaching racial equity to the eyes of children. >> your skin is so much our

market setups i have seen. the nails are put in the coffin as far as the fed having to tighten faster than anticipated during the slowdown. you know i have been bullish for years. it is rare i put the warning signs out as we started in november. today's data confirms the market will be correct in the second quarter. economists predicting 4%, 5% gdp, we don't see that. now that the fed is in a bad spot they fight much faster. 2 and 10 on the bond market, the yield is compressed 60 basis points and they think they will raise rates five or six crimes -- it is a dangerous place to be in terms of high beta access because they will invert the yield curve if they follow through on what the
