tv   Making Money With Charles Payne  FOX Business  September 8, 2022 2:00pm-3:00pm EDT

2:00 pm
kingdom wouldn't make it worse. queen elizabeth ii, now dead at age 96. fox business continues. charles: good afternoon, i'm charles payne and this is "making money." right now, queen elizabeth ii is dead at the age of 96. we will have details as we mourn the world's longest serving monarch. meanwhile the stock market showing moxie after getting spooked by jerome powell's aggressive vow to keep rate hikes until, quote, unquote, the job is done. i got to tell you the bigger question though, why doesn't the market really believe powell and what are the measuring sticks? what does powell need to see
2:01 pm
before he declares mission accomplished. i have top market watchers brains, jim paulsen, david bahnsen, kenny polcari, nancy tengler all here to help you with your guidance throughout the hour. jim bianco will have some choice words on that. his surprising research that company guidance is actually moving higher when everyone else says it should be going lower. my take on a tesla that needs gas backup. the awful story what california is doing to its citizens. all that and so much more on "making money". ♪. charles: all right, folk, central banks on the move. the question, where are they going? so this morning the ecb goes jumbo, that is the word they used, hiked the key rates 75 basis points, updated their guidance, economic forecast. that is really interesting so you can see they took the inflation numbers up.
2:02 pm
their gdp numbers are holding in there, so the big question is, no recession? they don't see any sort of recession in europe? meanwhile of course jay powell he spoke right after this all happened and of course he stuck to the same script. here's the thing, folks, again though jay powell was tough, if you look what is going on here, same sort of scenario. 75 basis-point hike, then a 50 basis-point hike and then we see a 25 basis-point hike but for 2023, so far wall street doesn't believe jay powell. so here's the thing, there are some folks out there though that do believe and when i say they believe, they believe big time. the institutions, eight billion dollars in puts, one billion in calls. look at this, this goes back 22 years, never, never, have you seen this kind of negative hedging. institutions are in this like it will completely collapse. mean time it is starting to feel like trench warfare, battle of attrition.
2:03 pm
to start us off i want to bring in the leuthold group strategist jim paulsen. jim i saw in your current note there could be recess of the june lows but the undertones of this current slide are much healthier than before. explain that. >> when i looked at, charles, was i looked at sort of what are traditionally aggressive investments and how they performed here in the downdraft, this most latest downdraft kind of the fifth one we've had this year in the s&p 500. in every case i looked at things like the s&p high beta index, the s&p lowest quality stocks, the, the microcaps, the small caps overall, the cyclical sectors comprising the s&p and in every instance i found their pullbacks, certainly come down during the drawdown but the pullbacks are so much less than the previous four pull backs that we had, they have held up
2:04 pm
remarkably well in the face of this downdraft in a way we didn't see earlier. charles: right. >> i'm wondering if that gives us a sense of maybe we're getting closer to the end of this than we think with some of the most aggressive sectors starting to hold up even in big pullbacks. charles: you acknowledged technology which the bottom fell out for a moment or two. at some point it seems the way the construction of these indices, particularly the s&p are right now, don't they have to lead the way, or at least get in the parade? >> i agree with you on that and i think they're going to. most of this pullback was tech. most of this pullback was tech and some other large cap popular growth names with a big surge in rates. outside of that i'm saying it was not a broad-based aggressive investment sell. i do think it is encouraging and i do think tech has got to see rates, the idea that the fed is going to pause. then i think it will join the party, i really do. if it does, with the other
2:05 pm
cyclical and aggressive components already doing better, i think that will be enough to finally take the s&p maybe back up to new highs. but i agree with you, i think tech has to join the party. charles: sounds like that is the perfect one-two punch. meantime last month you introduced you called the offense-defense portfolio. it has been very impressive. we have a minute to go but kind of walk us through the composition. why is this working? >> i monitor an offense to defense relative portfolio. it has pot the stuff you think in it, offense is some of the stuff i just listed and defense would be defensive sectors and s&p low volatility and hedged equity and things and i look at the relative performance n the previous four selloffs in the s&p this year, charles, offense relative to defense did horribly, came down dramatically relative to defense. in this latest rally off the june lows offense beat defense by more than twice as much as it did in either, either of the previous four rallies, and,
2:06 pm
during this pullback it is hardly come off at all. in fact for the first time this year broke above its 200-day moving average and it stayed above that average even as we speak right now. historically at least back to 07, that has been a very good sign for the overall tock market. charles: you navigated this very well. bearish at beginning of the year, changed in the nick of time, so far so good. thanks a lot. we appreciate it. >> thanks for having me, charles. charles: all right, folks i want to bring from the bahnsen group managing director david bahnsen. i have to ask you what the heck is going on with crude oil? yesterday it fell through a trap door, david. >> yeah, there has been a lot of volatility around crude, tends to go into the low 80s back up into the 90s last few weeks. interesting doing that with natural gas at very high levels. there is quite a divergence between crude nat-gas, crude is
2:07 pm
further going backwardation. the curve itself is pricing something very different. my view there are a couple event driftedden things that can push it way higher. i hope that doesn't happen, if god forbid this administration does go forward with withinan iran deal, let iran put a lot more crude on the market that could put prices up. if that deal gets done it could push it lower. if it falls apart it could go lower. i said it backward. the chinese saudi discussion, people a applauding u.s. backs taking their own hands world oil supply. i'm kicking and screaming we take our own matters in our own hands. other people are following advice and i wish we would follow it ourselves. charles: to that point the uk is doing all things of price caps but on the other end they
2:08 pm
announced they would lift a fracking ban. that is a great message to everyone, particularly the davos crowd, tell us we don't knee fracking do this, do that. they can afford it. the fact we need to push back against this notion that fossil fuels are bad for us, shouldn't we? >> well, yes, there are two things talking about fracking. first of all we need these fossil fuels so that people don't freeze to death and people don't starve to death. we need fossil fuels to meet basic human needs whether as you call them davos folks or anybody else. nobody is able to live without the reality of energy and our energy production relies on it. when we talk about transporting these things around, the environmental movement is really lost it because there is a safer way to do so and they oppose that too. charles: yeah. >> the building much new pipelines. they would rather put it on trucks and rail then use
2:09 pm
pipeline to transport our energy needs. there is a lot of things wrong with contemporary energy policy. charles: before i let you go, david, i have to ask you about dividend stocks. right now, this is really amazing, about 10%, only 10% of stocks in the s&p 500 have a higher yield than the 10-year treasury yield. when you take into account risk and things like that, does it even make sense to seek yield now from equities? >> well it makes sense to seek yield from those 10% of equities that are higher than a 10-year. charles: [laughter] >> i will add to it. i don't even want to own the 10% that is paying more than the 10-year. you have to have a growing dividend because that shows you confidence in a company's future projection. we don't look backwards. you look forwards. and you know, i love jim, your prior guest. he is really smart. has a lot of great market commentary but i don't agree big tech has to lead the next rain
2:10 pm
forward. that is not the historical precedent that what led the past decade leads in the next decade. it never has happened. charles: right. >> i don't think big tech will be savior of this market. i think good value dividend growth will be and there are high yielding companies that can pay you more than a 10-year and a heck of a lot more than the s&p's yield. charles: 10 seconds, share one name with us. >> 10 seconds. simon property, 7% yield will not go away. they are collecting rents. they own the best assets. huge real property underlying, simon property group. spg. % interest. charles: i love they have done during the pandemic they started to buy some of these stores names on the cheap. brilliant, brilliant. by the way hard assets, coming back in favor. david, thank you so much, appreciate it. >> yes, sir. charles: joining me now slatestone wealth chief market strategist kenny polcari. kenny you have taken a cautious approach to this market. i always tip my hat to you.
2:11 pm
here's the thing, there is a ton of value out there including mint and small cap stocks. they are trading at levels that are extraordinarily low. have you been refining your potential buy list whether you become more aggressive? >> yes. because i think you're right. at some point you have to really start to consider them more. so yeah, there is some things in there that i like, a whole list of names in there that we could like but i particularly like names in the energy space just because i'm overweight energy and i think i'm going to remain overweight energy so within that space there are a couple of names we can look at, right? dt midstream, xterra energy partners are two i like. they are strong. they performed well. they're up on the year. they have got good stories. it is natural gas. gathering, piping those are good stories. those are two names i keep my eye on. when i feel like most of the turmoil is over then then i jump in on some of those names. look, there is a lot of names in that space, not just those two for sure.
2:12 pm
charles: by the way so the audience understands what i'm talking about this is where you have your mid-cap valuations this is the historic level. small cap valuations versus the historic level. amazing value opportunities there if you're a value investor. kenny, having said that, there's a conundrum, right? viewers of the show have a conundrum overall. the market doesn't seem to believe jay powell but 95% of my guests, the experts do. so, what do you go with? go with the message of the markets or the collective wisdom of all the brilliant folks that come on with "making money"? >> with this case i'm with the herd, right? i think the guests are right on this one. i'm not really sure why the market is fighting so hard on this because we heard it from every fed head out there, heard it from "wall street journal," heard it from goldman sachs, heard it from jay powell again today, he will remain aggressive and remain focused on inflation
2:13 pm
until he gets it to a level where he feels like they finally broke the back. it will be painful a little bit. do i think the bottom will fall out? i don't think the bottom will fall out. to your point, a lot of hedging thinking the bottom will fall out. i don't think the bottom will fall out. i am in the camp i do believe what jay powell has to say. he rerated that again today. if he pulls all that now after the all the narrative last couple weeks after what they have been doing he will lose complete credibility. charles: let me ask you, kenny, i have a minute to go. the next big driver, consider we have a range. take the june low, august highs, feels like we might be range-bound hire. what breaks us out either side of this? what will be compelling, cpi number, next jobs report, what gets us out of this range? >> what i think it will be i don't think it will be the cpi, ppi, i think he made it clear no matter what it is next week he
2:14 pm
is still going ahead. what i think it will be, revisions to estimates ahead of third quarter earnings which start four 1/2 weeks from now that the beauty pageant starts all over again. remember last time, last quarter we heard them very cautious in the c-suite. cautious going forward and what the economy will be and i think these earnings estimates have to come down. i don't think the market priced it in yet. that will be the key that will rock the market a little bit once we start getting more of those estimates starting to come in. charles: kenny, loaf, appreciate it. thank you very much, my friend. meanwhile buckingham palace announcing britain's queen elisabeth has died ate 96. ashley webster has more. reporter: she died peacefully at balmoral castle, her beloved estate in the scottish highlands, charles. she served for 70 years, the longest reining monarch in

history. today we're talking about queen elizabeth. she oversaw 15 pms in her reign. during her time as queen u.s. saw 10 recessions and 14 bear markets. i'm sure at the time everyone of those recessions an everyone of those bear markets was the end of the world or seemed like the end of the world but every time we come across. investors have to focus on the long-term, when you have a market lost 25% of its value or nasdaq lost a third of its value, those are times investors if you have more than a few month time horizon, those are good periods looking to add exposure. charles: that is where you're the master, nancy. you don't listen to the noise. often you push back against it in part because you are a longer term investor but you see these as opportunistic moments? >> i'm the youngest of all boys. contrarian feisty by nature. you know, i cut my teeth on black monday. that was my first institutional client meeting.

earlier talking about how the stock market has been under pressure almost nine months. the individual stocks have been in a bear market for almost 18 months. we're getting to this period, when you tend to see the peak pessimism. another interesting thing we looked at, yale school of management does the poll every month where they ask investors how likely a crash is, if the market was to drop 3%, should you buy the dip, how confident are you its rebound? that hit buy the dip question reached a peak in november 2021. at that point individual investors would so confident you should buy the dip that ended up being the peak in the market. end of those periods it is good to go against the markets. to your point institutions were most confident buying the dip. we always talk about the little guy how they're wrong all the time, tendses not just -- charles: ironic the first chart i had today was on hedging or put call action by institutions and the spike on the call side

inflation impacts 100% of the population. i don't want to be callous about this but a recession and unemployment does not impact 100% of the population. really what he is trying to get at is that, and he said this in previous meetings too, if you don't get inflation under control, pretty much can't do anything else with the economy. so that is what he is focused on. now maybe he is right after outsized rate hike and we're expecting 75 basis points in two weeks and couple of others before the end of the year, that's all it will take to bring down inflation and then we can see it moderate in 2023 but if the question is, you know, very high social costs i think he is talking about inflation and we're not, by the way the other thing is is that unemployment is not really struggling, right? we produced 300,000 jobs last month. so that is nothing that should get the fedex or sized about it yet. charles: what do you make, everyone, the preamble to all of
2:42 pm
that the notion in the '70s, they had the stop go, stop go. what if you do get a couple of signs, one good cpi number, maybe a big miss on jobs, do they keep staying the course? that is going to be the test, right? do they pause when they start to see what they want to see knowing that it could be a temporary blip? >> you know that is the 64,000-dollar question. it is easy for the federal reserve to beat on their chest, we're going to rein in inflation and we're going to do whatever it takes as i said when you're creating 300,000 jobs, when the stock market is holding the june lows. if there is a scenario where the stock market takes out the june lows, job growth goes to zero, now, jay, will you still want to raise rates? i think they will but i will admit we haven't tested them yet. charles: right. >> that's going to be the real thing is that when the economy gets weak or should i say if the economy turns bad do they still maintain this course? they say they will but we

haven't really put them to the test yet. charles: i got less than a minute to go but i got to get your thoughts on powell's comments on crypto not saying they are a store of value. going after stablecoin, they need to be regulated. you're more on the defi revolution aspect of this but that was a pretty big statement. >> yeah, it was and it reminded me, if you google david letterman, bill gates internet, 1995 when he was on tv. , they were mocking the internet, they were laughing at him as bill gates was explaining the thing the internet. no one thought it served any purpose that is where we are with cryptocurrencies. i think what jay powell, peter gottlieb, the guy interviewed him pretty much said it it is still an experiment, work in progress, you're announcing it is all dial-up, ugly looking, it will not amount to anything. check back in five or 10 years, mr. powell. maybe what we'll see might be something completely different. don't write it off just yet. charles: i think i have seen the

♪. charles: so the federal reserve trying to engineer what they call a reverse, the reverse wealth effect, right? in order to get people from spending money, it is just that point-blank. the thing is cash keeps coming in. soon we may have another trillion dollars washing over the land to forgive those big chunks of college debt. while it is obvious inflation is limiting what people can buy they just haven't stopped shopping. joining me kb visor group founder kristin bentz. yesterday the fed, "beige book" reported steady spending. they did note households continued to trade down with discretionary and food and other essentials. what are you seeing? >> what do i think? i think this market is bifurcated like you and i talk about all the time. so the high-end is doing well.
2:49 pm
the low end is struggling. people definitely will trade down in this environment that is inflationary. charles: what about those major inventory gluts that helped spark selloffs earlier in the year, the big box stores are, they working those off? there has to be some opportunities out there? >> oh, there are plenty of opportunities. there is always a bull market out there, right? some of these companies, walmart thank god was quick, target the same, admit they were overbought. honestly they are trying to get the supply chain to the consumer. with all the gluts they would have a dearth of items to get rid of. that is something fantastic for the consumer especially during back to school to profit off of, but again when it comes down to the margins and the bottom line as you're seeing with american eagle's performance yesterday it is really hitting these companies hard. charles: yeah. the latest update on consumer credit comes out today, 3:00 p.m. this thing has been a
2:50 pm
rocket ship. people are really, really resorting back to their credit cards. looking at 33 billion. that is the estimate. how much longer can we keep using plastic until we run out of that? >> depends on who the consumer is. so that low end consumer is taking one credit card to pay off the other credit card and they're being forced to decide, okay am i buying food this month or am i paying my utility bills? so that's a problem. high-end it is just a nuisance to them, but low end you're really going to see that that consumer start cracking especially back to school, heating bills, when we start cooling off, not here but the rest of the country. so i don't think that consumer can sustain that much longer. charles: of course the other end we keep talking about that you point out the stocks are starting to reflect that. do you like real high-flyers there? >> i really do. i kind of stick to my knitting in situations like this and luckily the market has reacted

bear market? >> for charles, i'm happy to give away something for you. options are such a wonderful vessel. you can utilize them to gauge market sentiment to understand maybe there is a directional bias or bullish or bearish. that could be the overall market, an individual security or a sector around because you can use that as a sentiment there is a way to structure options to profit from any type of environment. so whether you feel a security or a market going sideways drastically up or even down, so that is definitely the beauty of options. charles: i guess it would be important for hedging as well, right, in this sort of environment? >> absolutely. that is common strategy, something that's employed quite often bit institutional side, a very famous mutual fund comes to mind, jpmorgan fund they hedge buying a put. when you buy a put, much like an insurance policy it allows you to capitalize on any downward

2:54 pm
strike prices which is a really important component of options trading. >> jessica, what do you like here in this market right now? >> yeah. so that is, i'm a little different with my thought process sometimes. i really like to balance macro versus micro and understand those macro headwinds how we can capitalize on those and sometimes contrarian approaches. for example, we were talking about record low unemployment. in addition to record low unemployment, we also have record low productivity. there are a lot of job openings and people are not working. what that says to me there is need for automation, great balance macro versus micro. the that is the headwind. the micro we invest in security with automating processes efficiencies and things of that nature. charles: i like that too. in fact look look at the that gp report. i don't care what it is if it missed one column is always robust that investment in productivity. jessica, thank you very much good luck with your call after
