6:01 am
they're coming down, he gets the credit. >> i very much disagree with that. >> this as americans are still feeling pain at the pump. the national gas price average this morning is at $4.49 per gallon. and oil prices hovering just around $103 a barrel, 102, 28 right they. want to take a look at the futures as well as we're getting set up for the morning, markets are indicating to trade higher, futures on the dow indicated higher by 157, s&p by 25, nasdaq by 73, as we look ahead to a busy day of earnings and economic data in the united states and all eyes of course are on netflix, reporting second quarter earnings after the opening bell this morning, johnson & johnson expected to be out within the hour also. we are waiting on june housing starts and building permits at 8:30 a.m. eastern time. the commerce department expecting june's number of new homes under construction to rise

6:03 am
>> good morning, everybody. some beautiful shots of new york xi city there as we're setting up for the day today, another blow though, to president biden. a new poll finding that only 38% of voters say they approve of the job that he's doing. 74% disapprove of biden's and link of inflation. now, it was a year ago today that the president tried to claim high prices and inflation were only temporary. meanwhile, the white house denying it's deploying a double standard as it takes a victory lap for falling gas prices. listen. >> aren't you having it both ways? because when the gas prices go up it has nothing to do with the president. when we see a decline, you want him to get the credit. >> look, i think there's no both way thinking here at all. i think there has been a consistent i think pressure on this white house to try to do everything it could to ameliorate inflationary pressures and the president has
6:04 am
reacted from the beginning, talking about how this was such an important priority to alleviate these pressures on behalf of the american people. >> it was putin's fault, when they're coming down, he gets the credit. >> i very much disagree with that framing. >> all right. today's new national gas price is $4.49. that's nearly $2 more per gallon than the day that biden moved into the white house. joining the conversation all morning long, disruptive tech research founder and chief analyst, lou basenese, and defense of freedom p institute for policy studies spokesperson, angela morabito. lou, i'm going to kick it off with you. your reaction to bernstein's comments. >> it must be nice to be the president and live in an alternate universe. everyone knows inflation is the key concern here. to say he's doing everything he can to bring inflation down is laughable. i think if people remember going back a couple decades, the commercials, trust me, but he's
6:05 am
lying. it's coming down to i believe the midterms, right. in november there's not going to be any chance for them to push the blame off on anyone else. the results are going to be in the ballot box and it's going to show that inflation and gas price as the most tangible representation of inflation for everyday americans is going to prove what takes these elections coming up be in november. >> angela, even with the decrease in gas prices we've seen, they're still $2 higher than they were when biden came into office so people are really understanding that this is -- it's policy driven and even the reduction that we've seen is the speculators saying there's a recession ahead, demand is going to fall, that's why these prices are down. not because this administration changed course in any way. >> right. well, working with the presidential administration that wants all of the the credit and none of the blame and the american people see through that. they just can't have it both ways. and i think you're right that the biden administration might be speaking too soon when they try to take a victory lap on slightly lower gas prices
6:06 am
becauses what a they may be celebrating here is one of the first symptoms of a recession. and not only is this president not doing anything to stop inflation, he's actively fueling it when you look at what he's doing with federal student aid which is functionally the country's largest consumer lender. he's continuing to keep student loans frozen, trying to turn the pandemic economy into the forever economy. this is going to come back to harm the u.s. taxpayer, his only solution to our economic woes is printing more money and that's us what causing the problem in the first place. >> the taxpayer paid more in taxes, paying more for goods and services, that's like a tax too. people are not enjoying it. stay with us. we're just getting started this morning. coming up, we're looking at big tech because it's feeling the sting of this economic downturn. we're talking about which companies are slowing hiring all morning long. then of course the semiconductor shortage causing new concerns for car safety. we'll explain.

6:11 am
jackie: welcome back. apple adding to the tech giants that are slowing their hiring while others, like microsoft, meta and twitter, are laying off workers on growing concerns about the economy. joining me now, mark avalon.
6:12 am
always great to have you and great to see you this morning, bright and a early. we're looking ahead to tech earnings this week, we're watching netflix reporting today after the opening bell, tesla out tomorrow. what companies start to tell us is going to be an indication for what's to come even though it's backwards looking, it was the last time that guidance set us up for what to expect. your thoughts on what you're expecting from earnings. .all right. i think we lost mark for a second. lou, i'm going to come to you and have the earnings conversation. what you're seeing with respect to who has reported already and what's to come. >> yeah, look, i think earnings ultimately drive stock prices right now and if we're looking ahead to netflix, last quarter netflix fell out of bed, the stock dropped i believe about 20% on last quarter's earnings report because the company admitted for the first time that growth is going to reverse course and they expect this quarter, today's report to show they lost 2 million subscribers,
6:13 am
maybe it's 200,000, i'm sorry. so they expect more subscriber losses ahead an this is really difficult times for the streaming world. it's a saturated market. i think most tech investors understand that netflix is not a leading indicator. it was a high growth name that was using debt to finance their growth. it's got to be a maturing business that produces a lot of cash flows. i think apple is always the bellwether. apple slowing down hiring, i don't get too concerned about that apple, there's just run away growth and run away hireing in the public and private markets going through this bull market. i think it's natural to see these big tech companies adjust. if the fed's supposed to be data dependent, so should ceos. i think that's what we're seeing out of apple. jackie: mark, i want to go back to you. when it comes to tech, it's about layoffs, slowing hiring, whatever the case may be. p i'm looking ahead to retail companies. i think it was walmart and target had that said we're seeing a pullback from
6:14 am
customers, we have to readjust, do all these things. retail is the pulse of this economy, right? two thirds of the economy is retail. that's what i'm worried about. i'm curious what you think. >> well, the consumer drove the last bull market and the consumer's still hanging in there strong, we heard that from brian moynihan yesterday. the real question is what happens in three, six and nine months when the higher rates slow down their ability to purchase and the higher rates slow down these companies and hurt corporate earnings. if we're looking out longer distance, i think the bloom is going to come off the rose a little bit and that's what worries consumer driven companies -- analysts who are looking at consumer driven companies. walmart, amazon is under pressure that's concerning and that's labor pressure, both from demand from the workers for higher wages and the unionizing, the organizing happening at
6:15 am
starbucks and amazon. that's a threat to their profit margins and a there's an inverse relationship between profit margin and labor costs. jackie: you're bringing up an important point. we talk about inflation, how long it will last. when it comes to gas prices we've seen prices fluctuate, they could continue to come down. when it comes to food prices or when it comes to these labor costs, it's very difficult to hike those prices up and then bring them back, right. people who are getting higher wages when inflation comes down at some point to 2% aren't going to want to take less pay and i see the same thing with food prices, restaurant price as well. once the prices go up, it's going to be very difficult to say hey, adjust your prices on the menu. i'm worried take some of the inflation is coming embedded in the economy. >> yes, and we saw that and that's what scares a lot of analysts and market investors is once inflation expectations get into the psyche of labor and that is when the wage hike
6:16 am
demands continue. we're also seeing an administration out of washington that is very pro labor. look, they're announcing investigation into amazon warehouses now. i'm not so sure if that isn't an attempt to help them build a union effort there. and to pressure amazon and other companies for additional wage hikes. the only problem is, the wage hikes happen but if price increases happen, then it was all for nothing and all it is a disruption to the existing environment and existing corporate profit structure which is ultimately what brings on employment and new hiring. jackie: when it comes to the banks, got man sacks -- goldman sachs looking to make we're end job cuts as well, despite being one of the only banks along with citigroup to report a double beat on second quarter earnings. your reaction to what you're seeing in the forecasts. banks often kick it off and they set the tone, right? >> yes, the do and what's going
6:17 am
on with banks is we are not yet in a deep recession. if we entered one at all, it's the beginning and it might be a mild one. so i don't expect and we haven't seen large credit losses. so it's too early. it's too early in this earnings cycle to see how this economic slowdown's affecting banks p but if we have more of a slowdown you'll see subprime, auto loans, housing loans have lesser performing index and that's when banks will struggle. if industrial loans have a little bit of a need to be restructured, if real estate values are pressured but it's too early right now. i'm looking at the season's bank earnings as a good sign for today but really not telling us a lot if we go into recession because that's when the bank losses, those credit losses, the biggest risk could be realized. jackie: many people say that we're in the early stages of this recession and it's still going to take time to trickle through to show up in the numbers so we'll be watching
6:18 am
very closely, mark. great to see you this morning. thank you. let's get to your morning mover, ibm down almost 5% in the premarket despite reporting strong earnings, beating on earnings per share and revenue. technology company trimmed its 2022 forecast over currency concerns and the impact of exiting russia operations. this while warning that the year's forex hit could be $3.5 billion due to a stronger dollar. coming up, many in washington asking if there was a point to president biden's trip to saudi arabia. congressman bruce westerman weighing in there. plus, a farewell to fauci, the nation's top doctor announces his official retirement, when he's hanging it all up, coming up. ♪

6:22 am
>> when we get back from this trip, this no new peace talks in the middle east, there's no new commitment to increase oil production in the gulf. so what was the point of this trip? >> his intent was to make sure there was not a vacuum in the region so you didn't have china
6:23 am
and russia stepping in, trying to fill that vacuum. we are confident that we will be able to measure the success of those conversations that the president had in the next couple weeks. but again, we have seen gas prices go down in the past 34 straight days, go down -- >> aren't they higher than when you took office, though? >> think about the war that russia has taken on in ukraine, an unmitigated war, a war that is brutal and has had an effect on the price. jackie: that was white house press secretary karine jean-pierre yesterday, asked about the results from the president's trip to saudi arabia and again blaming putin for high gas prices. i thought he went over there to ask for more oil. i don't think the results were exactly what he was expecting. joining me now, arkansas congressman, bruce westerman, a member of the house transportation and infrastructure committees. congressman westerman, your thoughts on how the trip went.
6:24 am
americans are struggling with high gas prices. the president goes to saudi arabia and no results out of this trip. >> good morning, maria. i don't think anybody should be surprised how the trip went. it was ill advised. i don't know who is coming up with this stuff at the white house. what were they thinking, to go to saudi arabia to beg them for oil and you're dealing with a cartel. they're not going to deal with you. what the president should have done is gone to texas, gone to louisiana, maybe pennsylvania or north dakota, maybe even go to alaska and deal with american producers where we can increase supply. the administration's on the right track. they realize there's a supply shortage. but that supply should be coming domestically, not coming from opec or any of these other countries. opec plus that this administration seems to want to deal with, other than dealing with american producers. jackie: you bring up a great point. the conversation should be had here at home, yet the president goes there to a country that he openly said he wanted to make a
6:25 am
pariah on the global stage. he a talks to the crown prince, brings up the horrific slaying of jamal khashoggi and he asks if he's responsible for this and he smirks and i think that kind of says it all. >> you don't fist bump pariahs. i don't know what kind of image they were trying to portray for. for what president biden said on the campaign trail about what he was going to do with saudi arabia and then we've got a vision in everybody's mind of him fist bumping the prince there and it's just -- it's a bad image, it's something that shouldn't have happened. it's like a junior high mistake. this administration is on the wrong track and what on earth possessed him to think it was going to be a good thing to go to saudi arabia to negotiate with the saudis when all americans -- i saw a poll that said over 90% of americans believe that or have concerns
6:26 am
with food prices, have concerns with energy prices. we realize we have the energy here, we just need to develop it. but all this administration wants to do and the left is they want to put roadblocks in the domestic production and then go negotiate with people we shouldn't be negotiating with. you don't negotiate with a cartel. jackie: congressman, a lot of this is about the green energy push. senator marco rubio was on hand hannity last night and he talked about it. >> you don't put oil in your car, you put gasoline. those have to be refined. those refineries are closed in america because we have an administration that says we don't want more fossil fuels. who will invest more money in an industry that the president and a his party is trying to put out of business. jackie: that's the problem, right. there's been a lack of investment in the instrument when it comes to he refining, for example, sir, we needed more refineries in the country for quite some time and that's one of the reasons that we're in the crunch that we're in. but as he said, no big oil company wants to invest in building refineries at this point. it would be billions and
6:27 am
billions of dollars, flushed down the toilet. >> and you've got wall street putting pressure on these companies not to invest in refineries. if you could get past the regulatory hurdles, then you've got the investment side of it. i saw an amazing statistic a couple weeks ago where u.s. refineries were operating at 94% capacity. that's taking into account all of the maintenance outages and everything. that's a phenomenal number. we need more refining capacity. this administration is attacking energy at every label. they're aided by wall street which is saying fossil fuels are bad so it's a barrier that's being put up everwhere you turn. i was visiting with a company that's building a natural -- yeah, natural gas export facility. they needed to put about 3,000 more workers on their site. this administration while blaming the industry said they couldn't put more workers on their site because of tail pipe exhaust from their cars when they come into the parking lot.
6:28 am
you can't even make some of this stuff, maria and they just keep doubling down on stupidity. jackie: yeah, let me just ask you one more question, sir. house speaker nancy pelosi denyingal -- allegations of insider trading after financial disclosures show her husband bought $5 million in chip stocks ahead of the senate vote to subsidize the industry. pelosi's office saying the speaker doesn't own any stocks, the transactions are marked for spouse, the speaker has no prior knowledge or subsequent involvement in any transactions. this is something that's been going on for years and it continues to go on as a matter of fact. >> we saw this with the pelosis with the tech stocks. we know that americans, 70% of americans believe that members of congress or their spouses should not be purchasing stocks but this is a pattern that is continually repeated.
6:29 am
i never met paul pelosi. i know nancy pelosi. i know just last night i was speaking at the rules committee, trying to amend out a $90 million earmark that she put in, an a appropriations bill for a park in a lush part of san francisco. so she's not beyond trying to play the system to benefit her and her neighborhood there. this is a place where the cheapest house is $13 million. but apparently speaker pelosi thinks 90 million should go to fix up the golf course. jackie: it's a good point. congressman bruce westerman, great to see you this morning, thank you, sir. >> thank you, maria. jackie: coming up, watching putin's moves, the russian president heading to iran today as tehran said it has the technical ability to build a nuclear weapon. general jack keane weighs in on the next steps. plus bird is the word of, this chicken takes a slow ride on a bookie board. look at that video. more of this viral video coming

jackie: welcome back, everybody. i'm jackie deangeles, in for maria bartiromo. it is tuesday, july 19th. a look at the markets this half hour to see how setting up on wall street. futures indicate a higher opening, the s&p 500 higher by 34, nasdaq by 105, this all after stocks finished lower yesterday. take a look, red across the board at yesterday's close. the dow, s&p 500 and the nasdaq all in the red and near session lows after apple announced it will be slowing hiring. meantime, oil prices are slightly lower this morning, down 57-cents, close to $102 a barrel for wti, and all eyes of course are on netflix reporting second quarter earnings after
6:35 am
the opening bell. we'll be watching for johnson & johnson reporting, they just reported a double beat moments ago. we'll talk about that. some of the top stores rise this morning, dr. fauci announcing he will step down as director of the national institute ofal earl and infectious diseases, after president biden's term in office. the 81-year-old has held the job since 1984. he has served more than five decades of federal service under seven different presidents. most recently fauci became the face of the federal covid-19 policy in 2020, making regular appearances on cable tv and he was routinely criticized for switching his stance on how to best tackle the pandemic. and the battle between twitter and a elon musk is heating up, twitter slamming musk's opposition to a speedy trial, calling it a tactical delay. the social media platform says musk is in breach of its $44 billion agreement and the public dispute is hurting the
6:36 am
company. hearing on the suit is expected later today. this as a new report indicates that musk is considering counter-suing the company. and ubers is agreeing to pay millions over a lawsuit that claims it overcharged riders with disabilities. the ride hailing company will pay compensation to over 65,000 users who needed more time to enter the car and were charged a waiting fee. uber says it modified its wait time policy. and finally, how the chicken crossed the flooded road, well, i think he did it on a boogie board. a west virginia family's pet chick was caught on camera catching a wave last week after a passing storm flooded the streets. neighbors say it seems like he enjoyed it. it actually does seem like he enjoyed it. i don't know. all right. russian president vladimir putin traveling to iran today for his second trip since russia's invasion of ukraine to meet with turkey's president and iran's president as well.
6:37 am
this coming after the white house warned last week that tehran could provide moscow with drones for its war in ukraine. joining me now, fox news senior strategic an a lift, general jack keane. general, good morning to you. and alls great to see you. -- always great to see you. want to get your take on this tried of vladimir putin to iran, after president biden's trip to saudi arabia. it's almost like putin saying you can go there, i can go here. we've got two of our enemies meeting today. >> you put your finger on it. this trip was scheduled after biden's trip was announced to go to the middle east and this is really about making certain that the nations in the middle east know full well that russia's got iran's back, much as russia and iran propped up the assad regime in syria when the moderates were gaining power back in 2014 and they essentially have shut them down and certainly nation as in
6:38 am
the middle east woke up and recognized how russia had come to the assistance of an ally and did that quite successfully. so this is putin power broking here, certainly. i think the second part of the visit really has to do with erdogan who is joining them there and they're very close to the u.n. initiative to open up the cargo ships that are blocked in the black sea by the russian navy and have them access the grain exports at the port of odesa and some of the other ports in the black he sea. if that that takes place, that's absolutely a step forward because of the famine and food shortages that have impacted countries as a result of the shutdown of the grain exports coming out of ukraine. jackie: a lot to watch for. there's senior advisor to iran's supreme leader saying iran has the technical ability to build a
6:39 am
nuclear weapon, as officials claim it's up to tehran to decide if it will accept the deal. let me ask you this, general. because iran has also sanctioned you and 60 other americans. tell us more about the dynamics huer. so many people are -- here. so many people are saying this is a bad deal, the u.s. should be going back to the table with this deal, it's irrelevant they're continuing with their nuclear program because they would have done it under the old deal anya way. how do we control iran when iran is pushing back with sanctions as well. >> that's a great point. i mean, they sanctioned myself and others because we speak out against the iran regime and we speak in favor of the national council of resistance of iran. look at, the iranian deal -- this has been on the wrong path ever since the administration came back into power and tried to put on the table the very same deal that we had in 2015
6:40 am
that was so fundamentally flawed because it gave iran flush with money to do all their aggressive maligned behavior in the region and we've seen the evidence of that for the years following the sanction relief money that they've got and a they're going to get it again if the deal comes to fruition. much better pathway and i think we'll eventually get there because it doesn't seem like this deal is going to come through is to really get tough on iran with sanctions, close some of the loopholes that are there. by the way, they have not been enforcing all the trump sanctions. jackie: no, they haven't. and so let me -- i'm sorry to interrupt you but let me ask you, with president biden in charge how do you expect any of these sanctions to be reinforced or new sanctions to be put in place? sanctions were actually working. that's something this president obviously doesn't believe in. >> well, what i'm saying as an alternative to the nuclear deal, the nuclear deal doesn't go forward, what is he going to do? what i'm recommending is these
6:41 am
are the course of action i believe he should pursue. obviously maximum sanctions, close the loopholes that are out there and double down on them. the other thing is, something he began to do, initially he dismissed the abraham accord, huge strategic mistake. that's the beginning of stitching together a defines alliance against iran -- defense alliance against iran with the arab states israel. a huge paradigm shift in the middle east. now he's talking in favor of that also, take the advice and council of the prime minister of israel who has said iran is in pursuit of a nuclear weapon, diplomacy and talk is not going to stop them. the only thing that will stop them is put on the table a credit military option. and those are the three things i think the biden administration should be pursuing because iran is on a pathway and as you mentioned in the introduction to have a nuclear weapon, and soon. jackie: all great points.
6:42 am
i want to switch gears while i have you for a moment. china is vowing this morning to take resolute and strong measures to a reported trip by house speaker nancy pelosi to taiwan next month and of course china's foreign ministry spokesman warning it would have, a, quote, grave impact on u.s./china ties. pelosi would be the first hitting house speaker to visit taiwan since 1997. general keane, your thoughts? >> well, i think this is high time that senior policy makers do go to taiwan. this is something the united states has imposed on itself as a result of the 1979 taiwan relations act. we have stopped our senior policy people and senior military people from going to taiwan. we should open that up, and listen, in addition to speaker pelosi, the inhe dough pacific commander and his -- indo-pacific commander and his staff should go to taiwan and begin to sin he crow nice the
6:43 am
poe ten -- synchronize a a potential invasion. we have stopped ourselves from doing military exercises with taiwan and bringing senior leaders in there to include policy makers and certainly someone as prominent as the speaker of the house. i applaud the speaker. i hope she goes. i hope she doesn't stand down in the face of chinese rhetoric here and let's carry through with propping up taiwan. we've seen what happens with the bullies in the world in terms of what russia has done to ukraine. china could do the very same thing to taiwan. let's learn the right lesson here and let's support this country. jackie: i think you're right, it's a great point, general jack keane, great to see you this morning. thank you so much. >> great talking to you, jackie. thank you. jackie: coming up, all eyes on big tech earnings, netflix, the heavy hitter reporting after the bell. we'll preview what's coming for subscribers ahead. plus, all in the family, nancy pelosi's office responds to her husband's million dollar stock

jackie: welcome back, everybody. time for the hot topic buzz. nancy pelosi denying a accusations of insider trading after financial disclosures show her husband bought as much as $5 million in computer chip stock nvidia ahead of this week's vote on a bill that would deliver billions of dollars in subsidies to the chip manufacturing industry. now, the speaker's office telling fox business, quote, the speaker doesn't own any stock, as you can see from the required disclosures with which the speaker fully cooperates. these transactions are marked sp for spouse, speaker has no prior knowledge or subsequent knowledge involvement in any transaction. lou, you know, judging by that statement it looks like they dotted their i's and crossed their t's. legally it's probably kosher but that doesn't mean it's ethical,
6:49 am
right. >> this doesn't pass the smell touch. i was married for 16 years. if i'm swinging around millions of dollars in a stock trade and my spouse or partner doesn't know about it, there's no way. there's no average american is going to believe this is real. the best -- attend of the day, the best stock pickers should not be in washington, d.c. it's long overdue for legislation to prevent this, just as bad as insider trading. i think paul's picked the wrong chip stock anyway. he should pick nxpi. it has much more exposure to the automotive sector. i hope his trade works out terribly for him. jackie: we'll have to see. we'll have to see what happens with the dui charges that were filed against him as well. that's another issue. but it's so interesting to me that if i look at when it comes to speaker pelosi's rules for thee, not for me. this is not legislation she is pursuing to make sure that congress and trades and spouses' trades would be regulated because of potential to share insider information.
6:50 am
>> that's right. in fact, almost seven months ago, last december speaker pelosi was actually advocating against such legislation. and i think her office's explanations is just a little bit insulting to the american public. because when they say that sp stands for spouse on her filing documents, it might as well stand for speaker pelosi. her husband's gotten himself in hot water on this before. in fact, just a little over a year ago he cashed in on more than $5 million in alphabet stock right before the house committee was set to vote on reining in big tech. the timing is way too suspicious, it's too convenient to be true for the pelosis and they owe the american public a little bit of honesty and a whole lot more ethics. jackie: she just shrugs her shoulders when asked about it. it's interesting to watch. coming up, netflix reporting quarterly earnings after the bell. why it's anticipating another hit to the subscriber count. we're on that next. stay with us.

jackie: welcome back, everybody. all eyes will be on netflix today when it posts second quarter earnings after the bell. the company projecting a loss of
6:55 am
2 million subscribers after posting a 200,000 subscriber loss in the first quarter. joining me now, cfra research director, ken leon. great to see you this morning wondering what you're expecting from knelt flicks earnings today and -- netflix earnings today and what you're predicting in terms of the potential subscriber loss. stock was hit really hard after they reported the last drop last quarter and of course they've got this issue of accounts being shared. they said they're working on it. but probably no change just yet. >> yeah, it's really interesting, great to be here and for the largest video streaming player they have pre-recorded earnings calls so it's not live with analysts. it never has been. march was disappointing. subscriber losses expected. could it be 2 million? we're talking about a base of 221 million. so that's kind of where we are. but the changes are significant. netflix is saying how can we
6:56 am
actually get more paid users by perhapses password changes. another area is related to moving downstream from just pure streaming to advertising supported or abod and they had a deal last week with microsoft and additionally the question is how does video streaming really hold up if we move into recession. so these are really some big mac crow questions for netflix -- macro questions for netflix. jackie: we're talking about disney plus, hulu, hbo max, how do you think these issues and how netflix performs will impact those companies? >> i think for netflix, it's a question of is the world so large that you can continue to grow subscribers. all of these businesses have been driven by subscriber growth and eventually making money, whether it's ebitda or profitability. the question for netflix is if
6:57 am
you are a more mature company, then investors are going to begin to look at profitability. however measure that. that's really the delicate dance that netflix and even disney with disney plus have and hulu, is can you make money especially in a more challenging environment. so the sky is not the limit. it's actually much more finite and there's consolidation among the streamers. the testing of the password, so friends and family, you can no longer have 10 people on one netflix account, they're testing that in latin america. but only three small countries and chile, peru, costas rica. they want to be del kate in terms of making -- delicate in terms of making changes. you can go to disney or paramount plus or others. jackie: there are other houses on the block if you will. it's interesting to your point about the testing, what they're
6:58 am
doing is they want to charge customers for this password sharing. so those users in latin american countries will pay an additional fee if they use an account outside of their primary household for over two weeks. so they have obviously developed a way to track this. ken, you know people, i know people sharing passwords. i mean, this is a huge problem and all the streamers have to kind of get this under control if they want to be able to monetize properly moving forward. >> they do. and it's interesting for this industry. there's not one rate per month. rates vary significantly around the world. and even the slightest increases of rates or ways that you're protecting your franchise, you could have higher customer churn and that's the other -- to your first question, on this call tonight we want to see what the churn rate is of losing customers and what could be expected really for the rest of this year given we're going into
6:59 am
an environment where households are going to be watching every dollar. jackie: every dollar, you're absolutely right. lou, jump in here. >> look, i just want to get your thoughts on do you think the streaming trade is just over? we know tech trends come in and out of favor. the average household has 4.7 streaming services, over 74 million americans in north america have a netflix subscription. have we hit the peak and need to avoid this as investors? >> for sure. there's over 30 choices for streaming and >> you know, there might be specialized areas for programming but it's just too many chasing the same customers. the u.s. customer has matured and overseas it's much more price sensitive to much lower, lower rates. so even subscriber, even 50 plus, a subscriber that gets paid in india is much less than
7:00 am
the u.s. this is a mature market. it reminds me a little bit of wireless going back when you gogo to prolific growth to a more stable market. investors shifting the possibility to return on capital. jackie: lou, angela, stay try there the next hour of mornings with maria start right now. ♪ ♪ >> jackie: good morning, everybody. i'm jackie deanglis in for maria bartiromo. white house chief economist getting called after praising president biden for bringing down gas prices. >> because when the gas prices go up, it has nothing to do with
7:01 am
the president. when we see a decline, you want him to get the credit. >> there's no both way thinking here at all. >> it was putin's fault. >> when it's coming down -- >> jackie: national average gas price is at 4.49 per gallon and we are watching oil prices closely too. those are correlated with gas prices slightly lower this morning, oil just under $101 a barrel here in the united states. i want to take a look at futures see how we are setting up on wall street this morning, dow indicated higher by 205 points, s&p 500 by 31 this as we look ahead to a busy day of earnings and economic data all eyes will be on netflix reporting second-quarter earnings after the bell. johnson & johnson reporting in last hour and double beat on renew and earnings per share. we are waiting on june housing
7:02 am
start and permits. the commerce department expecting june's number of new homes under construction to rise 2%. this is all coming after stocks finished lower yesterday down across the board, sea of red. dow and s&p 500, nasdaq all closing near session lows after apple announced that it will be slowing its hiring. meantime take a look at treasuries, the markets are watching this closely. the yield on ten-year 2.99%. just under 3% right there. european markets, they are lawer as well. take a look -- actually changed a little bit in europe. we were down across the board but now the cac 40 that's marginally lower. hong kong was the biggest loser there, down almost 1%. mornings with maria is live right now. ♪ time for word on wall street. payne capital management
7:03 am
president ryan payne, ryan, it's wonderful to see you this morning. home builder sent meant came in much lower than expected yesterday at 55 points. it was the lowest since may of 2020. we are looking ahead to building permits and housing start at 8:30 a.m. eastern time. what are you expecting? >> i think they'll be a little bit better coming in. we will see what happens. there's no surprise, look, everything softens in the housing market, we have interest rates up. we know commodity prices and material costs are going up. it's hard to find labor right now. you are hearing no good news coming out of the housing market so we will see. those permits should be slightly up this month over month but i think the bigger problem, jackie is demographics. if you lack at millennials, largest cohort in the u.s., they are in household formation, they are not in their parents' basement. the oldest millennials are now like 40 and you still have under supply. you have during 2010 biggest
7:04 am
under supply in housing start. over six decades we saw the least amount of production and housing and i think that's going to be a longer testify term trend. even though the housing may soften with interest rates going up. if you start looking at demographically, you have the huge cohort looking for housing. long story short. jackie: they are looking for housing, i definitely agree with you. there may be in their parents' basements a little longer because prices haven't come down. we need to see inventory jump significantly to make housing more affordable, that's the delicate dance. joining the conversation as well. head of investment strategy hank smith. great to see you. payroll growth is strong but economists are seeing conflicting data, right, the labor department are showing that employers -- hank, we are
7:05 am
seeing this conflicting data and i'm wondering how you can rationalize that? >> well, i think overall we are still in a very strong labor market. if you look at any -- if you walk down any main street anywhere in this country you see help wanted signs in every single -- in every single store. so i still think this is a very strong labor market which if we are in a technical recession two consecutive quarters of negative real gdp this would be unique, with decent balance sheets, strong -- a strong well capitalized banking system. so i don't think the labor market is as weak as the household survey as recently suggested. jackie: i hear you, hank, but it takes time for all of this kind of be exposed through the
7:06 am
numbers, right? we have already talked about some companies, tech companies specifically either implementing hiring freezes or laying off employees, right, it doesn't all happen overnight, i wonder if the strength that is we are seeing in the labor market that everyone is trying to hang hair hat on, if that deteriorates over time and there's evidence that it might, we could be in for a worse situation than people think. >> well, a lot of this is the dislocations of covid and you mentioned the tech sector doing some trimming and job cuts but that's because they overstaffed during, during covid. amazon is a gate example of that as are other technology companies because the demand was so incredible during that lockdown and now that we are out of the lockdown phase, you're starting to see reversal of that that, so i think you will start
7:07 am
to see numbers that go back and forth and we kind of normalize from 2, 2 and a half year period that this country frankly the global economy has never seen before in 100 years. jackie: i think that's a good point on tech. maybe overstaff there. but ryan, when it comes to americans labor force participation, americans that are looking for positions, every one person that's looking, there are two jobs available and we all know too many people who are staying on the sidelines, they are basically saying wage growth isn't enough to keep up with inflation so why should i go to work. as a matter of fact, ryan, real wages are down. >> versus inflation they are. the other problem is aging population. we have a lot of baby boomers that decided to pack it in and retire. jackie: although they may be looking at retirement and rethinking as well.
7:08 am
ryan: we are hiring. we are going to this recession is completely overdone and i agree with hank here. i'm hart press to see any sort of real recession with how strong the labor market is. you are not going to see. wages will continue the rise. on the flip side you are starting to see inflation come down, commodity prices have come down and i've been calling it the great equilibrium where wages stay strong and start to see inflation come down, that's going to be a huge win for the economy and soft landing that no one else believes. jackie: okay, we are looking ahead to the fed meeting next week. futures market now pricing at 33% chance to raise rates a full percentage point. that would, you know, cool inflation down even more than what we have seen already with the potential fall, with the potential fall of the labor market of plunging housing market 40-year high and inflation. i'm wondering ryan, what you're expecting from the federal reserve and, you know, to add to
7:09 am
your point, that's one point -- maybe jarome powell, maybe he gets this, maybe he can engineer the soft landing? ryan: i think he can. .75% hike is more realistic here. i think what was crazy last week we had the huge peak inflation come in over 9% on cpi number yet the treasury market saw interest rates come down. so the market is already telling you that's already priced in, whatever the fed is going to do with interest rates and we get two more hikes and then we may see a reset or pivot where they actually pause. again, these are optimistic signs. i think inflation is overdone. not a big deal what the fed will do next week in my humble opinion. jackie: all eyes on the fed. great to see you, thank you. much more ahead this morning, coming up starbucks to close more stores over safety concerns plus voters are not happy,

jackie: welcome back, starbucks warning more store closures are coming, shuttered more than a dozen stores in cities across the nation after employees complained of drug use and violent crime. ceo howard schultz blaming soft on crime policies and democrat-run cities saying in part, mayors and governors and city councils advocated responsibility in fighting crime and mental illness. crime soaring in sacramento,
7:15 am
homeless skyrocketing 67% in three years, in salt lake city business owners say customers are scared because of growing homeless camps and in new york major crime soaring 30% so far this year. number of burglaries and robberies. lou, your reaction to this, now we are seeing it impact cities across the country. especially in new york mayor adams said he was going to be tough on crime and we have a 37% spike on our hands. >> socially mostly liberal ceo's in the public markets and we are seeing the real-world impact of too liberal policies on fighting crime, you know, i think this is not going to be the last company that's going to talk about down-sizing locations because of these really main issues for -- for average americans, right? inflation right now and rising crime. i think it's also a case of
7:16 am
starbucks overgrew. there's 32,000, over 32,000 locations worldwide. a couple of hundred of those in a few city block in new york. but i do think the underlying and overarching issue that everyone cares about, every american is the rising crime in our big cities and it's just unacceptable. the defund the police movements have had a real negative impact on the reality for the men and women that are bravely trying to defend our freedoms. jackie: i hear you. and so many people are outraged about this. crime is a huge issue, angela, as we go into midterms and even people who supported the defund the police movement, seeing the reality when you do that and lose law and order across the country are changing the tune a little bit, some of the leaders in place that are going along with this may have some changes
7:17 am
coming. >> i think they need to have some changes coming, certainly a change of heart because this is just so sad and i think howard schultz deserves some credit here for speaking out, calling out the problem for what it is and speaking out on behalf of his employees to keep them safe but what's sad here that keeping those employees safe now means that unfortunately they are all now out of jobs and starbucks, it's just a tip of the iceberg here. i'm really concerned about the mom and pop shops and cities around the country who don't have the luxury of saying hey, we will close 16 stores and forced to send people to places that are extremely dangerous because the local governments have failed at their most basic duty of keeping citizens safe. jackie: look at what happened in new york city, bodega, people are outraged by that saying such a clear case of self-defense, yet, you know, he's dealing with this uphill battle that he has

jackie: welcome back, another blow to president biden. cnn poll finding 38, only 38% of voters say they approve of the job that he's doing with 74% disapproving of his handling of inflation and just in case an opportunity arises to secure top spot, vice president harris and california governor gavin newsom are reportedly already reaching out to don orors. joining me now arkansas governor mike huckabee. governor huge bee, great to see you. so many people say i don't care what president biden is saying,
7:23 am
there's no way he will run in 2024 and looks like the competition is heating up, people are trying to prime their positions. >> they really are, jackie and the numbers are dismal. it's a life fest out of sheer concrete and he's sinking to the bottom and who are the 38% that say joe is doing a good job. these are people that don't read and don't keep up with anything that's going on in the world and might live somewhere in a cave because most people that look around see the economy and they recognize what a mess we are in and, you know, joe can try all he wants but he can't escape responsibility for a big portion of this. jackie: and i think you're right and probably included in the 38% are extreme far left that look at, for example, energy policy and green energy policy agenda
7:24 am
and are happy about that so people have different priorities but most of the country right now suffering as a result of high gas prices, high food prices, inflation and no end in sight at least for the near term right now. it's so interesting if he were not to run in 2024, you had kamala harris who had huge opportunity and squandered it as vice president and i'm not really sure that the options on the democrats' side really make a lot of sense here. >> well, they don't. interestingly kamala harris lost her speech writer this past week and quite frankly watching some of her speeches in which she talked in circles, one had to wonder, you mean she had a speech writer and somebody was putting it in front of her and she had the audacity to speak that.
7:25 am
clearly kamala harris had a problem in reading what was in front of her. jackie: the president has the same problem too. around the same page there too, right? >> well, absolutely. i think what we have to look at is when you ask people about the economy, only 18% of the american people think it's in good shape, now, that includes a lot of democrats, 82% of the people say the economy is in the tank. jackie: yeah. mike: you just can't overcome those numbers and the economy is always the number one thing that american families think about when they go to vote. jackie: inflation 9.1% year over year. that number only continues to rise and the white house explains it away by saying it's backward looking but people have been feeling that, they've been paying for that, that's coming out of their budget for the year and it's going to be a while before it drops, governor, we do know that. i want to transition, though, and switch gears for a moment while i have you because stephen colbert staff now in the clear,
7:26 am
charges of unlawful entry in house office building were dropped yesterday. they originally went in saying that they were recording a comedy skit and fox news reporting capitol police are upset about the decision with forces saying it undercuts law enforcement trying to secure the complex after january 6th and i think a lot of people would agree with that. unlawful entry into the building not allowed doesn't matter the reason they were doing it for. why is there double standards here? >> is what americans really angry about and particularly half of america that seems to be on the receiving end of the switch and the sticks and the belts and all the other things that the government is throwing at us. there's a real sense of outrage that because these people are on the left and they work for stephen colbert. even though they were told not once but several times to leave the capital and then allowed back in by congressional staffer. so there are two big questions. number 1, how come they didn't
7:27 am
get arrested, why were they not put in no-fly and stay in jail for 16 mails and awaiting some of the hearings like protestors did? some of them never entered the capitol on january 6th and still got charged, their lives were ruined. here is the other question, are you telling me that not a single congressional staffer got fired for letting them in? jackie: for the access, right? mike: absolutely. when people say if you speak up at a school board meeting, you're a domestic terrorist but if you're a liberal, you go to the capitol and be there unlawfully unescorted, you are told to leave and you don't and nothing happens to you. that's not really a good look for the democrats and for the far left and i think it only bodes well that a lot of people, i hope they will, be utterly fed
7:28 am
up and send these guys packing in november. jackie: so many double standards we were talking about speaker pelosi, house paul making pretty hefty trades betting on semiconductors, chip stocks ahead of vote on legislation that would change what we are doing here in the united states with semiconductors and so many people say it might be legal but it's not ethical. governor mike huckabee, great to see you this morning. thank you so much for joining us. mike: thank you, jackie. jackie: chipping away at car safety, why your next car may have all the features that we have come to rely on. a live report is next. stay with us. ♪ ♪ ♪ meet jessica moore. jessica was born to care. she always had your back...

is not justshortage but take a r right here. that has seat warmer and might not come with the function. iou a seat warmer functionality. okay, not the most important thing in the world. here is the thing, there are other features that are being left out because of the chip shortage, take a listen. >> we get the customer a form that says, you know, you're missing a chip for a navigation system, you're missing a chip for a blindside mirror, you're missing a chip for back-up camera, you to come back and we will install it at no charge and we need to get your hands on it and we can't tell you when it's coming in. reporter: is if you are ever driven with back-up camera, you know how useful those tools are. the consumers are still buying these cars even at high prices
7:35 am
because they have little other choice and the cars are really costing a lot more. here at this lexus dealership, customers are getting into bidding wars actually over the cars and regularly paying over msrp, the manufacturing suggested retail price. so when it comes to chips, the u.s. share of the semiconductor manufacturing capacity it has shrunkfrom 1990 to today. the idea to try to increase competitiveness in the chip market and even if it passes it's not a flip that switches over night. people are walking away paying tens of thousands of dollars for a car and only getting the most essential things, jackie. jackie: i can't remember a time in my life where you are paying over sticker and you're not getting the kind of functionality that you would expect to be getting and used to walk in and knock 10,000 off
7:36 am
sticker but times have changed. madison alworth, great to see you. meanwhile senate majority leader chuck schumer announcing that the senate will vote today on a bill to boost the u.s. chip industry to compete with china, the legislation will provide about $58 billion in subsidies to encourage more semiconductorring -- semiconductor manufacturing in the united states. joining me now george congressman house armed services committee member and house agricultural committee member austin scott. great to see you this morning, sir. this is a step in the right direction, right, the supply chain shortage, the semiconductor shortage, it's been impacting our economy for quite some time now but some people say it's a little -- it's a little too little too late. >> yeah, jackie, a step in the right direction but maybe go back and see why we lost the industry to start with, not just semiconductors but it's hard to find a tool that's made in america anymore. when trump ran, i think he was elected on the american first and bringing it back home, this
7:37 am
manufacturing, critical manufacturing back to the united states and so it's $50 billion in subsidies, those subsidies are necessary because of bad policy inside the united states and then the issue that is not being addressed in here is the mining of the elements that it takes to manufacture semiconductors and we need to bring materials to the united states because we don't have the able to mine in our country anymore and so that's some of my concern that i see with the legislation. i think it will pass. i hope it will help but, again, it's not going to fix the problem overnight or even tomorrow. it's going to take several years, i think, for the capacity to be built inside of the united states. jackie: i think it's a great point. the materials that you need need to be outsourced. president trump made america first top priority no matter what industry we were looking at, whether it was oil and gas, whether it was technology, he
7:38 am
wanted to bring manufacturing home and what he didn't want to do is necessarily subsidize companies, incentivize them to make business more competitive and more friendly here. the way the biden administration is approaching it with subsidies really concerns a lot of people that that's the wrong way to go about this, to make our manufacturing more competitive is what we need to do. >> that's absolutely, right, and the subsidies make industries more independent and control long term. i may vote for the legislation, i may not, it depends on what's the final version of it but the fact that we are having to give subsidies to an industry is the problem. we need to be going back and looking at the policies that have been put in place over the last several years and have made manufacturing noncompetitive in the united states, we need those jobs. we need the manufacturing jobs, we need the mining jobs. americans won't lose jobs and if we are having to give subsidies of this magnitude to an industry
7:39 am
to effectively entice or do bribe -- >> jackie: doesn't make sense. speaking of subsidies. green energy, electric vehicles, these are places where we have seen a lot of subsidies as well and when president biden came into office he said this was going to be the future of the labor market. we have yet to really see those jobs materialize in earnest and another area where job is pouring out at the same time the white house is denying this double standard as a biden administration takes a victory lap for falling gas prices. listen to this. >> because when the gas prices go up, it's got nothing to do with the president. when we see decline, you want him to get the credit. >> look, i think that -- there's no both way thinking here at all. i think there has been a consistent i think pressure on this white house to try to do
7:40 am
everything it could to emiliate inflationary pressures and the president talking about how this was a priority to alleviate the pressures on behalf of the american people. >> it was putin's fault. when they are coming down, he gets the credit. >> i very much disagree with the framing. jackie: of course, he would disagree with the framing, national average 4.49, it's over $2 more per gallon compared to the day that president biden took office, congressman, you look at the oil and gas industry, some people would say, you should be encouraging, incentivizing and even subsidizing them to pump more oil right now and refine more gasoline, that's just not happening. >> jackie, you saw this guy go across to meet with prince and it's up to opec plus. this president, joe biden does not even meet with republicans. i can't tell you the last time i
7:41 am
heard anybody in the house republican caucus being invited to the white house or meeting with the president of the united states. americans are paying the price for this every day at pump. nobody is buying what they are selling from the white house. they know it's not true. they know he did this. if you look at america's oil and gas industry, why would they invest billions of dollars when they've got a president of the united states and vice president of the united states that are being controlled by a group that wants to put them out of business. jackie: yeah, it makes a lot of sense and most people understand what's going on behind the scenes, that this is policy, it's agenda, this is exactly what they want to ram through before the midterms and begging the saudis and opec plus really not going to get us anywhere and by the way i will just say this, the price drop that we have seen in gas prices is coming as a result of the future's market, right, the speculators saying recession is coming and that's why the prices are down.
7:42 am
they are not down because of anything that the president has don't and they are not done because of release of a million of barrels, spr reserves are supposed to be for an emergency, we are going to be heading to hurricane season soon. god forbid we have catastrophic problems in this country and we have depleted the reserves to try to reduce gas prices. >> yeah, i was in high school the last time the reserves were this low. the release of the reserves did nothing to reduce cost at the gas pump for american citizens. i'm in favor of putting legislation in place that the president no longer has authority to release reserves without vote in congress. this was abuse of the system. he did it for politics, from a policy standpoint and did nothing to help americans and when you see the oil being shipped to foreign countries, some of which are adversaries and not our friends, that makes me sick to my stomach. jackie: a lot of people would like to see you do that,

7:48 am
>> well, two weeks ago i predicted that we have reached peak prices on oil when we reached 125, 130 level and we we have retreated since then. on friday we almost hit $80 a barrel which is a new low and food prices will peak out and reach peak prices in september because there's a lag between oil and food prices as they go up. it's always maybe 90-day lag in food. 30-day lag in prices in the gas station from crude oil. the big -- the big question mark is, the recession does not have to happen. i've been talking about that. interest rates. the fed, the white house spent trillions of dollars, trillions
7:49 am
of dollars to take us over the covid crisis. my opinion is they should delay increasing in interest rates before they destroy a real estate industry and other industries in the united states with high interest rates. jackie: yeah. >> delay it 30, 60, 90 days because oil prices, if we give them a little bit of optimism will come down. then food prices will stabilize so the rate of inflation will not go out of hand. and my criticism of president biden is he should have went to texas, he should have went to alaska, he should have went to canada. he would have gotten more results in oil than he did in saudi arabia which is very sad. jackie: tough to go to canada when you killed the extension on the keystone pipeline. he was sort of hat and hands and at this point the administration doesn't know what to do and
7:50 am
investment is going to takes 2 to 18 months to build out to see results and they realize that the american people are finally suffering right now. i want to passer through some of the things that you just mentioned, john, because it's really important. i understand the lag of retail gas prices roughly 30 days. i understand the lag and the relationship between oil and food prices, 90 days. but there are about 30% chance right now that the federal reserve will take the opportunity at the end of the month to hike rates 1 full percentage points which would be very impactful with respect to the housing market and everything that you said to try to cool inflation. what i'm worried about and what i think larry fink was trying to get at on the food side, part of this is not just about oil but it's about supply side, supply and demand economics. the supply is too short as a result of what we are seeing overseas and what we are seeing in this country with respect to crops and yields and so i wonder, i wonder if just oil prices coming down is enough to
7:51 am
bring us those -- the relief at the grocery store by september. >> you need optimism from the white house point of view toward the american people because everything that's been done lately has hurt the american people and helped the rest of the world. there is a problem in food prices and could happen as interest rates go up, as there will be shortages of certain products. there's another problem that has not come to light yet and i discussed it with maria a few months ago is a lot of our major factories, a lot, maybe about 20 of them have burned down in the last 18 months and have been destroyed and nobody is really investigating what's going on in that end. >> the biden administration touting lower gas prices, lower diesel prices as we are seeing the food prices soar but shipping is also a key aspect of
7:52 am
food prices as well. i'm wondering if lower prices with respect to fuel will help because what i see when i look at this equation and whenever i have seen with the price of starbucks, cup of coffee going up, i've never seen it come down and the same with popular household items that we see at the store. i wonder if some of this inflation with respect to food is now embedded in the economy. >> it will be here to stay. jackie: yeah. >> because people don't take it down as easily as they take it up and that's what i worry about and that's why i said, we will reach peak pricing in food by september. jackie: yeah. >> we worry about the consumer and we worry about our country.

8:04 am
thing that can happen on both sides, is that president trump president biden step out of the conversation be supportive not -- admit not going to run and really try to help their party, the next candidate again at least republicans have a clear candidate that could run with a nomination i don't think we can say the same about democrats. jackie: angela ron desantis did great job in florida during pandemic showed people how a state should be run, i know, he wanted to keep things open, free-flowing is to many people left blue states went to his state better quality of life people across the country saying i want that in federal government. >> that is right i don't think trump team needs to panic yet i have had -- auditor serving in his i administration the american people very well aware what a success the administration was, i know i am a little biased i do think

make a long list of things that he has done wrong in his state, and there are so many huge problems in california, when you compare california, to what is happening in florida, i mean just not even a you know a contest. >> i completely agree i think the biggest problem for democrats when it comes i think going to become obvious in midterm, once over they have to acknowledge president biden is not running reelection then who? i think going to be very quickly have to move from kamala harris and gavin newsom, but i don't know who is next there is no, no depth for potential candidates, and you know i think we might get another instance, where just because of the way politics have run in the past that is why president biden got nomination we might get kamala harris, just getting the nomination because -- >> oh, boy. >> more palatable i guess i am not saying that is what i wish for who else is next little candidate i adopt think that person emerged. jackie: i think you are right

2.11 more than it was a year or two ago this is actually ridiculous hurting american people driving inflation on everything else cost of groceries are up, the cost of -- almost everything else clothing caution it all has to get shipped to the store to the consumer, and that is all on backs of petroleum, eventually i have talked to energy producers doing what they can not to raise prize of electric to heat and cool your home but they are having, to eventually going to see prices come up there, that is all in the backs of joe biden and his horrible energy policy, we know what to do. we can unleash american emergency plucks deregulate the economy but ideology of democrats radical left so constrained can't even get to solutions to help american people. >> to your point about energy prices and he higher prices across the board in general we saw producer price index number up more than 11% inflation number was up more
8:26 am
than 9.1% that tells me as a producer continuing to see their costs go up across the board, they will pass more off to consumer we are not out of the woods yet as a matter of fact the new cnn poll finds 74% americans disapprove ofp biden's handling of inflation it was a year ago today he claims that high gas prices were an inflation in general only temporary, bernstein giving this excuse yesterday, when asked about that claim, listen to this. >> -- the question, about -- inflation, i think what realize is that he he also. >> i think ambiguity that word some hear transitory think weeks months others hear transitory economists used to broader ups and downs of krielgz think longer periods. >> your reaction to that.

>> it is a transition it is temporary, when we put brakes on biden agenda winning house winning u.s. senate, eventually getting a new administration, in 2025. we've got to get rid of him i mean he is -- is hurting american people, so what we need to do is but brakes on his agenda taking back is it house taking back and forth the senate only 112 days we begin to do that. >> congressman you are running for u.s. senate in north carolina, talk about the campaign, and your progress. >> absolutely we've been to ail 100 counties people are talking about inflation talking about the things jackie that you are talking about this morning, i am running to make life better easier for north carolinians all americans you can find out more about what i am doing, what i stand for, how we are going to win at web site ted i appreciate you having me this morning look we can put brakes on this agenda jackie, we know what to do but ideology of the left so constrained can't get to solutions to help american people.
8:28 am
jackie: we appreciate you being here, thank you so much for your insight congressman ted budd great to see you this morning. thank you. >> all right. we are looking ahead to june housing data starts building permits out in a few moments, lou er watching interest rates creep up that is going to have impact, on housing markets as well, and, may have impact on numbers, too, because, you know, building permits housing starts people may not be looking to increase inventories they think market is cooling. lou: look i can tell you all data i have seen lately from housing market is not promising so you are seeing cancellations go up last 60 days to levels 11 percent inside home contracts canceled, you are seeing investment buying, in home reaching a record 25% higher in markets including object that in nashville one with of the hottest real estate markets when you do i believe mortgage rates six months' time you know going to have impact on huffing, i think the question remains, is how long just like talking about the recession, if we're going into
8:29 am
recession how long is it going to be housing key in interest rates what fed does, you knowe we've seen this has been a great store of wealth, wealth generation through this bull market if you start pulling that back i think starting to see signs of cooling price corrections cyclical of housing that we are in. higher rates not seeing happen as quickly i am not saying not going to happen might take a little bit more time the issue right now coming out of the pandemic is really all about inventory. and they are still low. >> right, that is going to be a huge question mark that i am hopeful this data will illuminate for us there is a missing piece to conversation what i happening with rising rents in this country so many people renting major cities are being squeezed out of placess they've been living so far truly fortunate ones will be able to find a place to live plenty others are going to have to rethink living
8:30 am
situation. so the housing data that we are about to see i am going to be looking at in context of what is going on with the rental situation. jackie: all right. we are going to be right back we will have those numbers for you stay with us. oh, all right going to say wait for them should be out roughly 15 minutes i want to look at markets see where we are, ahead of numbers coming out, dow indicated higher by 139 points s&p by 22, nasdaq by 79 points i also want to take a look at numbers we are expecting, 1.58 million on housing starts, 1.65 million, on building permits, 1.685 on housing starts that is number higher than expectations, building permits? somebody have that? >> all right waiting for that data to cross, you can see markets not really impacted here the housing starts number was higher than expected, just slightly, 1.68 million.
8:31 am
. and building permits coming in 1.685 million just ever slightly higher there as well as you can see, markets continue to be stable, higher, ahead of this, just want to get a quickly reaction lou on numbers, pretty much in line with what we were expecting. lou: multiple -- including, talked about the fact that there is a supply shortage right we know that low inventories you mentioned it that is a longer term demographic trend not going to solve itself a slight increase in supplies is a positive sign, in next three to six months though it really comes down to interest rates, and how that how that changes, buyers psychology no one wants to volunteer, historically 6% interest rates mortgage rates not terrible right go back to 2003, 2004, where we were 4 or 5% rate not expensive but going to give cause to pause in real estate market i think
8:32 am
a matter of how much it is also i hate it i hate that our futures in the hands of the fed, and then engineering soft landing i don't think ever been done successfully but that is what we need right now from housing, situation, from inflation standpoint, so much is riding on interest rate policy right now. jackie: all right. we will be right back. . ♪ ♪♪ ♪ . ooohh♪♪ ♪♪ ♪
