tv Squawk on the Street CNBC November 5, 2013 9:00am-12:01pm EST
maybe they should come in on weekends or something. those are the only two things that are sort of looming. >> if the government was a public company, i mean, public companies change their software -- you obviously would fire the ceo if you had obama care. >> barry sternlicht, thanks for being here. this was a lot of fun. >> "squawk on the street" starts right now. >> good tuesday morning, welcome to "squawk on the street," i'm carl quintanilla, david faber and in europe some very weak action in the banks as we see more hand wringing over the rising euro and predictions over whether draghi will cut rates
this week. several big consumers names reporting better-than-expected results. find out what it means for spending ahead of the holiday season. >> hey, we're just two days away from that twitter ipo. bet you haven't heard that before. find out why the head of nyse said not every ipo goes to the moon. >> and apple has tripled the number since last year's launch. >> t-mobile posting a rise in q3 revenues as the company added more than a million customers in the period. got to start with kors. 71 cents, beats by 3 cents, same-store sales plus 23. not the 45s, 41s we were seeing a few quarters ago. >> still, this is an amazing story. the last bit of research we had was a downgrade betting this would not be that great. plus we added the addition to
the s&p. there was a lot of previous earnings, chatter about it. they have the best growth in any retail. >> what accounts for the success of this company from the moment it's gone public, while so many others, is it execution? what is going on at this company that isn't happening at others? >> it is execution and a very high price point, yet it can somehow be maintained. so remember coach is not hot. kors is not. coach has to seem to be table to discount, kors doesn't have to discount. it's a worldwide product and it is expensive. >> gross margins, 60.8. 60.8. >> have you seen the stuff? it's just another like skin of a cow. >> the street was looking for 59.7. but the last five quarters on come manies, 45, 31, 45, 35, 21.
does the comp deceleration bother you at any point? >> no. here's my answer to that. my answer is it's the law of large numbers. it's doing much, much better than everybody else. it would bother me if i saw someone else in retail within like -- you know, within like 1,500 basis points of course. retail is doing very poorly. when you search for a growth story, you're going to keep coming back to kors. >> david, t-mobile, this million figure on customer ads, pretty impressive as they continue to take customers hand offer fist in the words of craig moffett. >> it does seem to be and that was the concern about at&t's numbers frankly, we didn't see it as much as we thought we might when we saw the at&t numbers. we've also seen everybody else report at this point, verizon, sprint. so it's a strong quarter. the question for t-mo continues to be will it participate in one more round oflidation if
it comes to the u.s. wireless industry, if it is allow to occur by the department of justice and will that be with the likes of print or will it be with dish if that were to occur? >> where are these subscribers coming from? everybody had a good increase in subscribers. where are these people? >> at&t did not have an increase and verizon, it's slight. we are -- most people who want a phone have a phone. but if there is -- >> share taking. >> there is movement going on and their plans are working at t-mo. clearly the deal with pcs has been a good one. >> yes. >> but there is still a belief that they are not big enough to compete over the long term. >> sprint is in still a difficult transition. that stock still won't quit. as if they won't have a difficult transition. >> and that stock's been moving again lately. i'm not sure why.
the transition there is still going to take place. they got it to it being a 2014 story. remember, you have hardly any float there at this point. 70% of it is owned by soft bank. >> you'll see deactivations. >> you'll see sprint is the troubled one. it's dan hesse to told us there are no issues. dan hesse said there are issues. the stock has been on fire and it's not necessarily coming from management projections. an honest guy. notre dame guy. >> they have a plan. just happens to be a long-term plan. >> i think it's the 400-year plan. >> are they including like mars to venus? do they have that?
>> there are other earths out there. >> how much spectrum? the federation keeps spectrum very tight. >> aol, that's going to pop up by about 4 cents today. >> armstrong keeps delivering, the most understated, least promotional guy. >> he came on our air one time and said it's the greatest quarter in the history of man and we're eating up the not promotional. are you kidding me? >> he's a self-effacing promoter. they did it right. >> a little humble. >> got it. >> you know, green bay came and
they were all promosal. mean while we have guys calling all over themselves to say listen, priceline, stanley. i think priceline will be blowout. it's an amazing company. people don't realize it's the european way to travel and the analysts are such snobs, they probably never used it. okay? >> okay. >> you want to look at hertz, too? >> what's been interesting here -- you get this a lot in these names lately. ooh, activist. i'm not hearing it, though. i've been hearing it but you'll get an actual -- >> the equipment rental, will they figure out a way to jet ison that. >> united reynolds would be a
can you feel it? can you feel it. last night on "mad money," we talked to cramer. if you buy into the market, you can say i'm a buyer at different price levels. i ipo can go to the moon and there is the function of valuation that is the gravity at any price and investors need to understand where is that level they're interested in buying. >> thank you. i was so glad mr. cutler because are prices that people shouldn't pay. >> i talked to a couple of hedge funds this morning who are all in. people are calling up lloyd
blankfein and saying let's call in the favors. put me in for 10%. 28%, 28%. >> $20 billion, you're already talking 16, 17 times revenue. >> carl was talking to me -- >> some of the forecasts coming out of the presentations, on "usa today," citing some investors, $620 million in revenue this year, 40 million ebidta, next year 980 million revenue, 80 million ebidta. >> i still think there's a level you should pay. i think people are excited, too excited. >> everything goes right. if everything goes right, it will be worth $25 billion, $30
billion a year from now. i don't think you pay $30 billion for 30 billion. >> you have engagement seems to have stalled, u.s. growth of users is not that impressive. >> there's why i'm concerned. >> 75% of the business is international. also they figured out mobile. they don't have to worry about that. think about facebook when we were talking about that. they increased the size, increased the price, lowered expectations, got rid of lockups. >> unfortunately they were going to close the books early. it's do fear that the stock is going to open between 40 and 50. >> but do you think they've done -- >> it really doesn't -- i think
the answer is that the container store is priced for perfection and i hope everything goes well. . you have to hope that the same-store sells -- there's a price to pay. maybe everything, you know? facebook reports an unbelievably good quarter. what's the stock done? >> it's gone down. >> that's people selling facebook to twitter. is that all the money there is it in the world? really, to have to sell facebook for twitter? can't you sell something else for twitter? >> one's selling solar city. >> that's not a good idea. >> i once claimed someone's
house on margin call. i said send the keys in, you owe too much money. >> when you worked at goldman? >> person lost everything. person had unsecured assets. you have unsecured assets. they're not going to say better luck next time, it's fine. it's no different from when you repossess a car. >> that's true. that's cold, though. really cold. >> what are we supposed to do say that's just terrific, you know, sorry? you banged us for a billion for -- you banged us for 1.5 million but we're a rich company. that's not the way it works. maybe you think robinhood. >> i don't think that way. i understand it's a real -- >> it's business, sonny. >> thank you. >> you send a couple of guys to get the keys? >> what do you think, you're johnny o merging with afrafredo. it doesn't work. >> we have a developing story
out of nooj. -- new jersey. scott joins us from outside that mall this morning. good morning, scott. >> reporter: once again, the whole issue of the vulnerability of what they call soft targets comes into focus as a man armed with a loaded rifle walks into a shopping mall and starts shooting. police identify him as 14-year-old richard shoop from nearby teaneck, new jersey. he reportedly had a history of drug abuse. he wreaked havoc in this mall, coming in just before closing time rn around time, around 9:00 eastern time, fired at least six rounds and terror ensued as employees and shoppers ran for cover. >> when i notice people running and screaming, that's when i'm
what's going on. that's when everybody panicked, when everybody came and saw the store and we -- as soon as everybody came in, we rushed to the back, we went into the back and locked ourselves in, in total 13 people counting me and we waited in there for around an hour and a half, two house. >> it took some six hours before police finally found shoop's body. apparently shoop had left some sort of a note at home. of course as we've said, no one was injured but it could be because authorities say that shoop had just one thing in mind. >> we do believe that the main motive for what he did tonight was suicide. based upon what we know, it did not appear that he entered the mall to actually shoot anyone and i say that only because it appears he did have ample opportunity to do that and chose not to. >> and that raises all sorts of
questions and new security concerns. westfield, which owns the mall, said clearly yesterday's event heightens everyone's state of awareness and concern. our security precautions reflect that heightened state. you'll remember that westfield owned the shopping mall in nairobi, kenya, which was the site of a deadly terrorist attack about a month and a half ago. and a source familiar with the procedures here says that there will be an automatic review of the security procedures but that is an ongoing process but it gets more urgency with this incident here at home on the cusp of the holiday season. fortunately nobody hurt but it may bring all of this right back into folk pus. >> scott, thank you so much for that. when we come back this morning, lessons that twitter can learn from the rise and fall of a high flying ipo. we'll talk with steven paternot,
cow founder and former ceo of theglobe.com. a lot more "squawk on the street" live from post nine at the nyse when we return. mike roe at a ford dealer with a little q and a for fiona. tell me fiona, who's having a big tire event? your ford dealer. who has 11 major brands to choose from? your ford dealer. who's offering a rebate? your ford dealer. who has the low price tire guarantee, affording peace of mind to anyone who might be in the market for a new set of tires? your ford dealer. i'm beginning to sense a pattern. get up to $140 in mail-in rebates when you buy four select tires with the ford service credit card. where'd you get that sweater vest? your ford dealer. the ocean gets warmer. the peruvian anchovy harvest suffers. it raises the price of fishmeal, cattle feed and beef. bny mellon turns insights like these into powerful investment strategies.
. apple getting a boost from ipad air. pandora said it's managed to increase its share despite the release of the ipad apple. and what does the ipad news tell you? >> the stock is stuck here. i have gone on record saying i think it's going to go higher. it's stuck at the carl icahn tender play. >> 525. that's it. that was the number. >> it doesn't seem to budge. i remain thinking a very inexpensive stock, the us? good. it's going to be an ipad, and iphone christmas and i really like it.
i think just people betting against it are selling -- it's not solar city which sells an infinite. this has a real multiple and that almost hurts it. it's almost like someone thinks these earnings are coming down. i don't think so. they're coming pup. >> we've seen them come down. it's not that long ago. >> it's lowered expectations and i think they can beat lowered expectations. >> meanwhile pandora has managed to hold in there. how long do you think some of these independent surfaces can survive the apple ecosystem? >> you use i'm a sirius satellite, i use songsa. you should try it, just put it on mozart unlimited. go into the introduction mozart or beethoven and just try.
>> and keep it going all day? >> yeah. that's what i do. >> soothes you. >> not with mozart, he was a smart fella. mozart was a smart fella. >> very young. very young to die. >> when we come back, does your portfolio need a wake-up call? up next, get ready for cramer's mad dash as futures are a little bit weak here.

make a left two miles and find all the oil in the world. permian is for real, pioneer is for real but skeptics are coming in and saying it's not for real. i think pioneer has the best labs in the world and they say this is the second biggest find ever. >> next hour, we're going to being talking about this very subject. >> obviously doesn't have to worry about s.e.c. rules. he can talk about very honestly maybe it's not so great, maybe it's great. can't wait to hear that. >> we have the opening bell coming up next. ♪

number, jim, and closer -- there's a post that maybe they do move the date when it comes to taper. [ opening bell ringing ] >> going to see a little more red than green at the open. le wall street journal startup of the year winner and over at the nasdaq, ultratech, designer for the technology industry. haven't done cvs quite yet. >> cvs, walgreens and rite aid have been delivering, delivering, delivering. i've always been partial to cvs
but walgreens numbers were great. i was talking earlier to joe kernen. these could be precursors to what happens when gasoline goes lower. >> that is actually a really good point. regeneron leads at the open. >> he will be on "mad money" tonight, the drug for macular degeneration. when can rains, poors, as len says. people are talking about bubble biotech. but this company has real earnings. >> you got him tonight. >> yes, i do. i'm proud of our coverage of biotech. other than oil, this is where the action is. f.t. talks about a biotech bubble. >> i think about it, you've done pretty well this year, whether
it's been some of your calls on social, some of your calls on biotech. wouldn't you agree? >> i've been in some hot spots with social mobile. oil, thank you to mark pappa, biotech, thank you to bob -- >> but beyond the stock picks, if you watch your show, you're going to learn about these industries. >> thank you, that's what it's about because i'm going to make mistake. people maybe goes to 50 and i've kept people out there. the idea is to learn why twitter got
there and why container store got there and maybe people get smarter. it's not about stock picks. it's about making people smarter. >> i'm keeping an eye on directv, charter communications, both of which reported earnings this morning. directv looked pretty good. latin america's subgrowth may
have come in lighter than some, though u.s. is strong. story at directv is about repurchasing stock, to shrink the cap, the amount of stock, repurchase is 1.3 billion. i don't believe the call has begun yet. we're going to have mike on with us tomorrow. >> mike is smart. big international business, right? >> well, latin america is incredibly become and also questions about can you continue to compete when you
don't have a full broadband offering so to speak, robust broadband offering, do you try to consolidate the industry. as for charter, those numbers look okay. let's call it inline. the stock is down a little less
than 2% right now. one wonders what they will say about continued consolidation in their part of the industry. we all know the focus being on time warner cable, as i said, last week. now that time warner cable has reported earnings and charter has reported earnings, we will see that a new foray is made. there was a story out saying there were other talks between time warner cable and charter. that is not to my knowledge at all. there are no talks taking places as far as i'm aware at this point. the question is will charter/liberty make another attempt to engage and present a proposal that will force time warner to engage and what will our parent do. >> now, what are the technological implications of a directv, just in terms of being able to do a lot with that satellite signal. is that a limiting principle? >> it is in terms of being able to provide a robust broadband solution and what they are able
to do. what if dtv and dish were to get together? dish has an enormous amount of spectrum. you could conceivably fund the build out of that spectrum in a real way with the cash flow from the overall company, however anti-trust, not to pension personalities and a lot of other things, it might never happen. >> i hadn't thought of that. then you could roll everything together, sprint, he would have wireless, he would have a dish -- >> he's got many years to being concerned about that. hundreds. >> ted williams could come back. >> he could. c cryogenic. he's been frozen. >> keep your eye on the transports today. crude is down to 94 and change almost. although the transports are off a touch, we are seeing some airlines pop up, southwest air
and so forth as we look at what the impact of cheaper gas is going to mean on the economy over the next few month. >> the oils are going to be difficult. if oil goes below 90, you're going to see a lot of the red hot oils cool. i continue to believe that delta, which bought that refinery hasn't come into play yet. but delta is the best in show unless usair ways gets a really good deal at the hands of justice. did you take your numbers up tesla during the break? >> i took my numbers up on top of your number raised. i think carl raised earlier. >> i just want to be top of the street. >> i'm all in tesla but i can't go that high. let's go to bob pisani. >> i want to talk about the ipos.
i know you're all obsessed with twitter and rightly so. it's going to be the main topic of discussion this week. take a look, there are 16 ipos pricing this week. good heavens, i had to call around to find out last time we had a week like this. you had to go back to 2006 to find 16 ipos in that week. there's going to be 16 secondaries. there's nine more on the calendar, ipos this week. i'm about $4 billion including twitter. this is a huge, huge week for ipos. let me show you a couple that are being talked about. i think the most interesting one is barracuda. there's internet security, your magic word, and storage company, 4.1 approximately shares the $18 to $21. that's going to price tonight for trading tomorrow. and wix.com, is an israeli based
web developer platform and mavenir systems, enhanced services for mobile. and arc logistics, the yield on that, 7.75%, that's not unusual for a lot of these limited partnership pipeline and terminal deals that are out there. all of the yield junkies will be very interested in that. the big question is whether this is a top for the ipo market. i had kathleen smith on from renaissance. they now have an exchange-traded funds for ipos. yes, indeed. that's basically flat, around $20 and change. in but they have a mutual fund that they run called the ipo after-market fund that's done terrific this year, up about 50%. when i put that on last week to kathleen, people immediately
said here's the market top, whenever you have people doing an etf for something, it's usually a market top. it did top out, this fund, in the month of september. i'm agnostic about this whole question. when you get an etf for an ipo, it does raise questions about whether this is the top nyse out with earnings, ice intercould t intercontinental exchange did well. ice' ceo is expecting the merger to close in a matter of days, they're waiting for the last of the regulators in europe, there's a few of them, they don't expect any problems but it's coming in a matter of days. jeff said that he felt that less infield investors were being taken advantage of. he made a few comments about what he thought the markets were looking like right now and said there's a perception out there, u.s. markets are not fair. we'll see the advances of when
he becomes the actual ceo of the combined -- duncan niedermayer is going to be staying on. michael kors did well, beat on top and bottom line. they raised full-year guidance and revenue. cvs caremark, they also beat on tonight and bottom lines. the dispointments are in the fertilizing companies today, cf industries and the mosaic missed on top and bottom lines. >> the beauty, the charm of ireland. if you've ever been there, you know there's no green like you
see in ireland. >> you have been there? >> i have. >> corporations that reincorporate in ireland, well, talking about green, their shareholders tend to see a lot of it. the latest coast in endo pharmaceuticals and health solutions, endp, take a look today because it enters into a deal to acquire a canadian company called paladin and incorporates itself in ireland. my net worth will go up about 32%, i feel, even though i'll continue to work through it. it's about $1.6 billion in cash and stock deal. they'll get new shares of new endo stock.
they'll spin a part of it off and keep it in canada. each will be acquiredly bithis n -- acquired by this new endo company. the new company acquires a company in ireland. in this case, that's not happening. and yet it can still reincorporate in ireland. why? what i'm hearing from tax attorneys is in this case the new company in ireland should still work because the key to these transactions is getting the ownership correct, as long as the former owners own less than 80% of the newly combined company, the u.s. will respect the new company as a foreign company. they're below 80% by 2.5%, hence endo has managed to reincorporate in ireland. this is the wish and desire of
so many of these companies in pharmaceutical land. so exact adviseactivists manage have the eatons of the world with cooper and now endo doing it. in a nontraditional way, reincorporating new endo because it's going to represent 75.5% -- >> what point does the government say we have to lower the corporate tax rate or they're going to ireland. if congress were watching our show, i think someone would say wait a second. >> -- wait a second, everyone's going to move to ireland. why not? >> you've got to think about it if you're a ceo, how do i get to ireland, how do i acquire something in ireland, do a deal that allows me to reincorporate
in ireland. it's a very nice country, it beautiful. >> you cut your tax bill so big. ireland's a beautiful country. you're right. >> ring of curry, man. >> so nice. let's go from ireland to chicago, find rick santelli. >> if you're aiming for the south side, there's very little difference. if we consider there is a bias, so said traders earlier in the week, that you're going to see interest rates a little spongy. why you ask? they don't have a very good feel for a strong first look at first quarter gdp thursday at 8:30 eastern. they're not looking for a terrific jobs report on friday at 8:30 eastern and of course what's going on with the fed? but markets obviously didn't get the memo. look at 24-hour charts of r-10s up about four basis points,
bunds up about 4 basis points but the winner is the gilts, up close to 10 basis points. why? they had a pmi number that was the best in 16 years. and remember, we have our service sector pmi coming out this morning as well. even though our last look wasn't bad, if you go back a couple of months, we had the best number in eight years going back to '05. we want to pay attention to this dynamic. let's look at all those countries from the currency perspective, look at what's going on in the dollar index. the chart is popping up pretty strong, looks like we're making a play for 81. maybe this is the last push on the technical side. let's look at the euro versus the dollar. thursday ecb meeting, will they low lower, not lower? look at the pound. we just talked about a big rise in interest rates. the pound is having a really nice day, popping out pretty strong. to consider how all the u.k.
markets are moving, their stock market was still down half of 1%. carl, back to you. >> rick, we'll talk to you in just a few minutes when we get ism. kelly evans joins us at post 9, taking a look at pimco. >> news last night that as of the end of october, pimco's total returned bond fund, which has been the biggest mutual fund since late 2008 has been surp s surpass surpassed. the biggest fund now goes to van guard, which owns 3,600 stocks and it's up 27% this year in terms of appreciation and dividend, pimco down 1.2%. as of monday, according to morningstar, van guard has 288 billion while pimco has fall i don't know below 250 billion.
it goes back to may when the fed first started to talk about tapering. what it does suggest is that investors are changing where they put their money. a couple of things to take away from this. one is to look at what these indicate generally about the cycle. prior to pimco taking the helm in 2008, it was the america's fund growth fund in america and then the magellan fund at fidelity. for those who look at this as a contrary indicator, we're not there yet. a lot of institutions are still selling out of the market and putting money to work in credit. so there's still a sense that this tide is not quite turning, the great rotation may just be starting. nevertheless, a big headline and big headwinds for the likes of pimco here. >> it does make you wonder if
the typical retail chapter we get will happen this time. >> i think that's right. i think that's -- money should go to that. great growth. that's -- >> you're talking about the vanguard fund, up 27% this year. >> opening that big panoply may be a correct call. >> we've seen it in you look even down here at the big board. all market stock has generally been outperforming the s&p. it's a nice market. >> nice piece of paper. nice money. >> exactly. >> come back in a few minutes and talk about the call getting a lot of attention today. >> absolutely. >> when we come back, jeff bezos' wife has a bone to pick with the author of a book about him. and barney harford, ce orbits

16-year high out of the u.k. but better than expected nonetheless as interest rates move to the highest levels since the last fed meeting. back to you, simon. >> i'm now down 100 points on the dow. rick, thank you for that. let's link in to washington, a senate committee holding a hearing on the implementation on obama care. our own bertha coombs is live in washington with more on what to expect. over ov over to you. >> reporter: good morning. it's marilyn tavenner's third appearance on the hill in as many weeks. the senate channel that is going to be showing that hearing was streaming "hotel california" and it may feel like that during the hours she'll be testifying today. cms said despite the fact they are taking the site down
overnight to make repairs and they have made some progress especially when insurance transmittals none as 834s, they did have an unplanned outage for 90 minutes during the day. yesterday they did not have any answers as to what the cause of that outage was. in 25 days they have vowed that this site will work properly for most people. one of the things miss tavernef tavenner may be asked about is the other ways in which to apply. an internal memo says all of the routes still need the fed hub, still need healthcare.gov, that
everyone will be stuck in the same queue. this became a contentious issue yesterday during the white house briefing for jay carney. it's likely to come up again this morning as miss tavenner gets set to testify. back to you. >> bertha, thank you so much. we'll keep an eye on that. >> meanwhile, cvs raising guidance. let's bring in our guests. good morning to you both. >> good morning. >> lisa, pretty nice here, raising their guidance, pharmacy up 57. where are they now? >> the number of scripts they kept in the quarter was better than expected. i don't really think that that's what the story is right now, carl. it's really all about the
affordable care act and how well positioned companies are going into that and i think that cvs will clearly be one of the winners. they did a great job on the conference call today articulating what the new world will look like and how well they'll fit in. >> the simple answer to that is because people with better coverage ostensibyou ostensibly access to prescription drugs? >> it's access to prescription drugs and you think about cvs, the shortage of physicians, going to the minute clinic, about overall health care trends and how do you drive the costs down. it's some of the things that the pharma pharmacies do now and think about prescription trends going forward. >> how much of an eye should
investors be keeping on the front end? >> sure. obviously cvs is well positioned as lisa said with their integrated model. there's a lot of increased services they can bring to the consumer. i think going forward their ability to grow at above market is going to be a key advantage for them and a key driver of their profits. if you turn to the front end, it's indicative of a tough macro environment where the consumer is feeling a confluence of factors going on in the u.s. we did see walgreens, who has been a key competitor. overall these guys are still winning across the board. >> we were just talking with cramer about the tailwind that is gas prices. how much does it goose the stock
or sales at least? >> if you think about companies like cvs, it's much more of a convenient buy. if you have few more dollars in your pocket, you can potentially spend them at cvs. i think the story at cvs is much more of a health care story than consumer-driven story. as more individuals come into the store, whether it's to pick up your prescription, to visit the minute clinic, you're going to pick up something on the front end. that's really more of the trend here as we move into 2014. >> to put a period on it if you had a choice to buy only wag or cvs, it would be? >> cvs. we think great profits are coming for this company. >> the story will change as we get closer and closer to the pull roll out of the program. thanks a lot. >> in new jersey last night, a gunman opened fire in a mall
last night. scott is in paramus, new jersey. >> reporter: the gunman, 20-year-old richard shoop, who lived just a few miles from here in teaneck, new jersey, he managed to get into a shopping mall with a loaded rifle, firing off several rounds before disappearing. it took another six hours before they were able to recover his body. just imagine what it must have been like last night being in that shopping mall. >> he just walked past and waved at me with his a.k.-47. i'm just like, wow, god was with me because he could have shot me right there. >> we went in and we got into the bathroom and we locked the door and we sat there for over three hours waiting because they said don't come out, don't make any noises. >> this morning they are still processing the scene. some people have come here not realizing that the mall is closed for the day. and other workers coming by
because they need to get back and finish up their business from last night and contemplating the idea of going back to work, one employee told us that won't be easy. >> i'm not going to lie. i'm kind of scared just because you never know what can happen in the mall now. you really have to be aware of everything. you want to make sure your employees know what to do if something happens, you want to make sure that you're going to be secure. >> the owner of this small, gardner state plaza, westfield properties, tells us that security is heightened, to say the least. we're told by a source that there is a review that's triggered by this. clearly as we head into the holiday season, soft targets like this back in focus. carl? >> thank you very much, scottie. let's have a look at where we are on the markets at the moment. we're down triple digits a few minutes ago. we've cut some of those losses down. i think it's not insignificant that overnight that jan believes
they will move down the threshold, a dovish sign from 6.5% unemployment to 6%. this is as a result from within the fomc that will be presented on friday. the problem for the market is that while that is dovish, he may put that with the decision to taper and that is not dovish. he thought now december was a possibility as well. we know from experience that is potentially bearish for the markets but we're off the lows. >> it's a reason to watch the 10-year here, 2.67 percent, the highest level since the last fed meeting. ahead of that services figure, now equities struggling to take a positive turn as a result. we're just days away from

evan williams was ceo until he was ousted in 2010, replaced by dick costolo. biiz stone was pushed out around the same time as williams. a publishing platform called medium is designed for easily sharing longer form content. now, stone and williams obvious corporation also backs a different kind of startup, beyond meat, which produces vegan meat alternatives. they announc now, the co-founder who is furthest from twitter's nest is noah glass. he left soon after the company
launched after a falling out with his co-founders. his linkedin profile said he co-founded odo where they hatched twitter. we reached out to noah glass but haven't heard back. glass has been nearly written out of twitter's history. simon? >> just two days to go, julia. julia boorstin with what we know about twitter. we want to talk more about how twitter is changing the educational landscape. our guests, gentlemen, good morning. welcome to the network. >> good morning. thank you for having us. >> what's interesting here, it's not just what you're teaching,
it's the way in which you're teaching using twitter. let me come to you, first of all. you actually have a running twitter conversation as i understand it in the class. you can see what the students are making of what you're saying, you can respond to them and if you're talking about companies, they, too, can become part of that session. is that correct? >> that's right. twitter is an e sense part of my classes, up on screen at all times, doesn't matter what we're doing. i am seeing what the students are saying and republic acting to. it motivates the students when they get to ask questions and get an immediate response from professionals. >> isn't it distracting, anthony? doesn't it mean you can veer off in many directions and not go into the depth that arguably your students require given that everybody has its time constraint? >> it actually mirrors the real world for us.
as we walk through our daily lives, we are distracted by needs coming from all around us. the class mirrors that and we learn to discuss substantively while we react to what happenslinhappens online. i think that's a valuable lesson. >> andrew, in your case you post 12 week have i videos of the lecture and then you ask the students to respond to a blog and they have to do a weekly opinion piece where they respond to the blogs. >> we talk about how students can become engaged with social media as a whole, particularly with twitter. it involves students participating on their own, sort of at their own convenience, not necessarily during a live classroom, because our classes for our graduate program are
taught asynchronously. >> isn't there a danger they tend to rotate round in this joint scream of consciousness, that may not be particularly well informed or well educated, which is a criticism of twitter some have. you go round and round on a not in depth level? >> you can participate at any time in the week. unlike having a traditional class where you might meet for two, three hours a week, people are participating and active throughout the week whenever it's good for them. they're participating at all times learning from one another with the facilitation of the instructor themselves. >> i assume the social media masters program predates the existence of twitter. in what way has twitter changed
the way you offer the program? >> the students are actively engaged with their instructors on twitter. one of the things that would happen is students maybe not send an e-mail to their professor or a traditional message to their professor, the students actually try to get in contact with the instructor through twitter, through direct messages, through tweets. i think what it does is create sort of this connection between the instructor and the students that you might not otherwise have because you feel as though you have connection, a contact with your instructor 24 hours a day. >> anthony, in your case, i'm imagining it's a little bit similar to media studies, people will understand the power of the social network, they they probably won't be able to program for it or become the next mark zuckerberg. >> that's correct. in some cases we have students pursuing that. we're looking at the strategies that corporations and entities can use to leverage twitter and
other social networks to achieve their goals. so we're taking a look at how you build an audience, how you share information in the social media era, which can be quite different from the way things were done just a few years ago. >> let me ask you finally a quick question each. would you buy, if you were able to get hold of twitter's stock, would you buy it at the debut on thursday? andrew. >> will you be giving me the money to pay for it? >> no, i won't. >> i don't know. i think what they're doing is you notice the price keeps going up and that makes me a little reminiscent of what happened with facebook. so i would be a little bit concerned. >> anthony? >> i'm a little skeptical myself. i'm looking at the potential for growth with twit esh and seeing they're going to have to make some very significant changes to their features in order to be profitable. we don't know yet how the community around twitter is going to respond to that so -- >> good to meet you both.

welcome back, i'm sharon epperson, gasoline prices keep falling. crude prices keep falling, below $95 a fairly for u.s. oil futures. we're seeing rising gasoline supplies as well and lackluster demand. a big part of the reason, the national average $3.24 a gallon, down a penny from yesterday, down about 10 cents in the past
month. prices could go as low as $3.10 for the national average by the end of the year, but we're already seeing prices below $3 a gallon for the statewide average in five states, including missouri and kansas and also seeing about 35 states around the country where somewhere in that state can you find gas at some station below $3 a gallon. a lot more information on how low gas prices will go and whether you can find gasoline below $3 a gallon on cnbc.com. back to you, guys. >> just in time for the holidays. we'll see if it helps the consumer out. >> boeing on the verge of an unprecedented deal that will get the company through the bulk of its orders. phil lebeau has the details out of chicago. good morning, phil. >> reporter: good morning. this is important for boeing and machinists. they're saying are we're sure we're going to have labor peace through the rest of the decade?
that's what it looks like as they're close to signing a deal. for boeing as they close in on this deal, the labor contract, if they agree to a new one, would ensure the 777x, that it would largely be assembled in the puget sound area. what does boeing get out of this deal? a new contract that would run through at least 2020 and perhaps several years after that, ensuring labor peace for boeing for several years, which is going to be critical as they go through the rest of this decade. you've got to go back to 2008, the last time that boeing had to deal with a strike by the machinist union. when you look at boeing's back log, the important thing is boeing wants the certainty about the fixed labor costs for more than 4,700 planes. this is a all-time record.
the value, $345 billion. you go back to 2008, the last time there was a labor strike for boeing. since then, this stock is up 165%. we've talked with people with the machinist unions, as well as with boeing, they're close to a deal. if that happens, look for share to get a little further pop as people say, okay, we know the labor is locked in. >> still ahead, investing in the energy sector. one of the industry's biggest players will tell us what's working now. back after a quick break.

>> the total capital expected to come in at $15 trillion. my next guest is the money behind aubrey mcclendon's new company. joining me is john raymond, the founder and ceo of energy and minerals group. nice to have you here. >> great to be here. >> we tried talking about what is a revolution. i don't think we do it justice as to what's going on here. but $16 trillion is going to be needed to get this stuff out of the ground and transported over the next 20 years? >> globally it's over 20 years. >> there going to be a need for that kind of money? >> you're talking about a number at $5 trillion that equates to
the small cap companies in america. >> big number but compared to $5 trillion, where else is the money going to come from? we don't need it at once, it's over a long period of time. >> it's a combination of a lot of different capital sources, recycled from the industry, new investment from people such as ourselves and the private domain and foreign investors as well. it's going to be a lot of different sources required to come up with that amount of capital. >> earlier jim cramer and i were talking about the permian, which we've been doing with pioneer. you're a texas guy. are you a believer in that and whether they will be able to recover everything that investors seem to be banking on at this point? >> it's a great question. you get into an interesting conversation around the permian and unconventional resources. there's the advancement of parallel technologies in
hydraulic fracture. the point to understand here is technology. it is those advancements in the technology that allow the industry to go in there, into these big fields and recover more and more of the oil and gas. so the challenge for the industry is how do you get more and more out of the proverbial box you're drilling the horizontal well through. as you better connect with the rock, your recoveries increase. what you're seeing across most of the big basins is eur creep and that's basically a -- >> standing for -- estimated ultimate recovery. >> where are we in the timeline in terms of the technology ramp-up, if you will to increase eur and how long will this go on? >> to use a baseball analogy, we're somewhere between the first and second inning of the conversation. this is a generational conversation that will last for
the course of the next several decades. >> and would have revolutionary impact -- not technology revolution but impact on this country analytically. you could make a lot of arguments. >> the energy business today is one of the largest and most capital intensive businesses to begin with. it represents a little bit less than 8% of the u.s. economy, we employ a little bit over 9 million people. but ultimately what's happening is going to have far reaching implications not just for the energy business but for this country as a whole that will impact the life of each and every american. people now starting to talk about on horizon ten years out, maybe a little less than ten years out, an independent north america. if we were no longer reline-item veto -- reliant on foreign companies for energy, how would that reshape the conversation around foreign policy in the middle east, for example. i mean, these are all
conversations that are going to come into play here in the course of the next five to ten years. >> from an investment standpoint of course, return on investment capital ends up being important. i reported a few weeks ago on your significant investment and aubrey mcclendon's latest company in the utica shale. why do you have faith in mcclendon? you're the majority of the money behind that. >> we are, we are. aubrey -- and we have a lot of investments in a lot of companies. we've been very fortunate over time to have the benefit of working with some fantastic management teams that we're in partnership with. when you think about that in the context of aubrey, what aubrey has done over the past 20 years is nothing short of exceptional. when you think about where chesapeake started and where it is today -- >> there were a lot of ups and downs. >> there were a lot of ups and downs but the industry as a
whole had a lot of ups and downs. there's something out there called the forbes 20-20 club, 20 ceos deliver a 20% rate of return over 20 years in america. there are eight ceos that can say that and aubrey happens to be one of those ceos. so aubrey is a very talented and capable individual and with him comes a whole group of people who know how to execute large scale development and understand the subsurface development. you have to have high quality rock, marry that with very significant balance sheets. the $1.7 billion of opening capital is the largest balance sheet for a startup ever. we have to fully capitalize a development program and you have to marry it with very good
management teams who know how to execute with perfection. they are fighting the day-to-day ground war, drilling the wells, connecting them with the mid stream systems to ultimately generate the cash flow that you need to get the return on the investment dollar. >> john, it's a fascinating story. i look forward to checking in with you as time goes by. >> absolutely, my pleasure. >> simon, over to you. >> the annual j.d. power survey of satisfaction among customers of car rental companies is out. national stops the list, partially because they let people choose the car they want rather than assigning one. enterprise, and alamo are owned by the others. >> at every single point, the more people said that someone smiled at me, whether it was the
pickup driver, whether it was the shuttle person, the gate attendant, the counter person, the more they smiled, the more satisfied and more likely to return the customer said that he or she would be. >> it's simple, smiles equal satisfaction, equals higher margins. if they're repeat customers, you don't have to spend the money on marketing. >> amazing how easy it can be. >> it's often quite difficult to get your staff to smile all the time. >> coming up, a history-making ipo where the stock collapsed the next year. the co-founder of the globe will join us and tell us what advice he has for the company's execs. we'll be right back. mine was earned orbiting the moon in 1971.

twitter's highly anticipated ipo right around the corner. as many now know, twitter has yet to turn a profit. some are comparing twitter's ipo to some of the tech companies that went public during the dot-com bubble era of the 1990s. stefan paternot is now the chairman and ceo of slated and he joins us this morning to talk about the market. good morning. >> good morning. >> when you hear the "globe" be used for some sort of touchdown for the era we're now in, do you think we're in the same ballpark? >> no, not really. i think that the markets have evolved quite a bit in the last 14 years.
i think when the globe went block in the late 90s, the internet was a phenomenon. everybody was going crazy. in fact, going public became a rite of passage. the globe unfortunately was part of reason there was an ipo mania, because we went up 1,000% in one day. so when people are trying to buy into any old ipo, it creates a ridiculous bubble. what's going on today is a little different. the focus is more on individual companies that have really stood the test of time, are generating major revenues, have massive multi-hundred million user bases and i think that changes things and makes them a little bit stronger fundamentally. >> take us back to that day where you did go public and you mentioned the thousand percent pop, the valuation to over $1 billion. did you know at the time that this was not going to end well? >> no, not really. because at the time i was 24 years old and a 24-year-old kid
doesn't really know too much about life and bubbles. but, you know, when the globe went public in the late 90s, it was an amazing experience. it legitimatized companies. everybody wanted their company to go public because it meant it was real. advertisers were more comfortable with companies that were better known. it was a strength for the globe and everybody that went public after was asking the banks can you do for us what did you for the globe? we want a high ipo. the ipo is a little out of the control of the ceo quite often when the demand is so high. >> the flip side is then you become emblematic of the downturn and that's still the legacy that casts a shadow over the ipos this time around. is there a difference where the
tech company was then versus today? when you have companies like facebook and twitter that seem to at least have a fundamental business model? >> there's a huge difference. back in the 90s you could go public simply because you had an audience. you didn't have to be generating revenues. people were so excited, they were willing to take a pass on the bottom line. that's that's really different. when facebook went public, it had hundreds of millions of users. it's the same case with twitter. twitter may be smaller but they're still orders of magnitude bigger than netscape was, the globe was. there's a much stronger fundamental and there's much bigger institutions holding on to these stocks for the long haul. i think that's one of the bigger dangers of course is if a stock becomes overhyped like facebook did get last year, you end up with too many small retail investors and retail investors are really still in it for the short term. even some of the major institutions nowadays are in it for the short term. the potential danger is it will
get a little oversold again. >> in the meantime, stefan, i'm fascinated as to what happened to you personally. at 24, how much were you worth when it was ascending, how much money do you feel that you lost, how do you get on with living your life? i know many people who were millionaires many, many times and they found it very difficult to actually deal with the fact when the whole thing burst that they again had no money. >> yeah, i mean, it was challenging because at 24 years old you're suddenly put up on a pedestal and then you're knocked off the pedestal and you're not really sure what you did right or what you did wrong pip wou. i would say there was a lot of personal growth i needed to go through. that said there's nothing like going off into the wilderness for ten years to split and reevaluate and grow from it. now that i come back, i would say i have a lot more experience, i have a lot more
knowledge, i'm averse to companies going public for obvious reasons and i feel there are specialized fundamentals to look at. i'm coming at it with a little more wisdom, a little more calmness and a little more experience. >> i think it's an education a lot of people would die to have, even though it doesn't always end the way you look. thanks so much for your time and please come back. >> will do. thank you. >> coming up on the program, we are bringing a little championship flavor to post nine, world series mvp david ortiz of the boston red sox will join us live in the next hour of "squawk on the street."

we want to get some breaking news. kate kelly has some on s.a.c. she joins us on the phone. good morning, kate. >> reporter: good morning, carl. in an internal e-mail sent out in the wake of a large $1.8 billion settlement between s.a.c. and federal prosecutors yesterday, the firm is acknowledging for the very first time somewhat publicly it plans to become a family office. this note send out by s.a.c. president tom cahini, and it said we will become a family office. we will operate much as we do now. even though we'll probably have to give back our registration as

"over the next several months, we will wind down third-party investments and return capital to outside investors. he goes on to say, we can still run our business, and we believe we have in place a strong team for 2014. of course, s.a.c. will also have to fight civil charges against founder steve cohen with the s.a.c. about failure to supervise employees, carl. they're saying in this note, those are without merit, they believe, and we could see a fight ahead as they continue on as a manager of private capital. >> -- color at all about their access to leverage, their relationship with other players on the street? >> reporter: you know, there's no comment in the note about that. really just a review of why they settled, what their plans are, and kind of a thank you to employees. having said that, my early indication from other wall street firms that do business with them is they're going to continue on for now. they believe they are protected
from liability by the secure agreement between the government and s.a.c. shortly after the indictment. and they're going to continue on. >> all right. and we'll see just how many continue on with them. kate kelly with that news this morning for us. thank you, kate. >> reporter: thank you. now, over to the cme group. rick santelli with the "santelli exchange" on a tuesday. hi, rick. >> hi, kelly. many on the trading floor look forward to steve liesman's interviews with the fed officials. it's not about the fed officials, but garnering where they're going, where they've been, and where they are, and how that will affect traders. today, i learned important bits of information from boston fed mr. eric rosengren. i'd like to play a clip. >> you would agree, you've said that before, you would agree your colleagues have said that before, i would agree i heard that before. it tonight seem like it's sinking in. is there some other way that markets can be told to
understand this thing, or is it just something you can't do? is it too complicated a policy? >> so i think it has been a complicated policy. so one of the challenges is we've not been in a situation where we tried to exit from a large balance sheet before. and communications is a very important part of that. so we're working to get the communications better and be as transparent as possible. but there's still been challenges as you pointed out. >> well, a couple of things that jumped out at me. first of all, it's not sinking in. i think when it comes to the markets -- and the political class saying too things are complicated, as well -- it usually isn't really a communication problem. but most important in this, we've been -- we have not been in this situation before. they've never had to deal with an exit. so to me, the word "communicati "communication" has a very important value, or association, with it, and that is information. in order to communicate well, you need to have good knowledge of what you're trying to communicate. never been here before.
never had a balance sheet like this. never had to exit before. so is it really a communication problem? no. i think that it's a mis-problem. i think we're mis-construing knowledge. so we've heard a lot, whether it's bush 41 with regard to "read my lips" on taxes, president bill clinton and the word "is," current president with regard to, "if you like your doctor and your health care, you can keep it, period," the federal reserve is evidenced by this -- oh, no, it's not that we're doing anything really weird. it's just that you don't get it, or it's about debt. it's these "miss," because in the end, when you hear it's too complicated, usually what follows isn't reality. back to you. >> all right, rick, see you in a little bit. tweet time. mckenz mckenzie besos, writing a book from the retailer. she says the "everything store" has too many inaccuracy. we wanted to know, if the bezos

stock exchange. let's check on the markets here. we are seeing some red arrows really for the first time in the early going, the month of november. we had two days of gains to start the month, giving some back, although off of the lows. we were down 100 points not too long ago. a strong demand for luxury is boosting shares of michael kors. the company reporting a 40% jump in quarterly revenue helped by handbags and accessories. and shares of gt advanced technologies surging after signing an agreement with apple to open a manufacturing facility in arizona. the company makes sapphire materials for a lot of apple's gadgets. now to the roadmap. it's drama on capitol hill, as medicare chief marilyn tavener is defending and apologizing again for obama care. we'll go straight to talk to johnny isakson. a shooting last night at a new jersey mall has many wondering how safe america's malls are and whether there will be another hit to brick-and-mortar stores as holiday shopping ramps up.

will be working smoothly for the vast majority of americans who try to sign on to healthcare.gov. he asked marilyn tavenner what the timeline looks like for that to happen. >> we actually are doing a series of software upgrades, pretty much several times a week. we will continue that. you will see improvement week-by-week, but this is weeks, not months. and we are not rewriting the architecture. >> that is one of the things that a lot of people have said, that the entire architecture needs to be rewritten. some of the pundits on the outside, technical experts. but she says that is not necessary. they are rewriting software. they had been doing it overnight, taking down the site at least for the foreseeable future. they will be taking it down between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. they now have a notice about that on the front page. notwithstanding that, they did have an unplanned outage yesterday of 90 minutes that they did not -- or were not able to identify.
meantime, senators on both sides of the aisle, guys, continue to ask about the issue -- about whether people can keep their plan. one senator saying, maybe cms should back a plan by senator johnson of wisconsin to legislate that, to allow people to continue to keep some of the plans that have been cancelled. back to you. >> okay, bertha coombs in washington this morning. bertha, thanks. meantime, a new survey out from adobe revealing the holiday season will be about the e-economy, thanks to the growing mobile user base. jon fortt is back at headquarters with details on this one. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. yeah, adobe based on the surveys, forecasting that ecommerce will have the first $1 billion thanksgiving this year fuelled by steep discounts and the rise of mobile shopping. so these numbers are worth watching for a couple of reasons. last year, adobe predicted black monday online sales within 1%, at $2 billion, and the company got 72% revenue visibility within the top 500 retailers
online, from its analytics platform. i talked this morning to brad rencher about how mobile and even showroom driving the online sales this holiday season. take a listen. >> the mobile apps are, you know, are almost twice as engaging in terms of the time people spend in an app versus a mobile web experience. from a retailer's standpoint, that's important. and so, we see a lot of forward-leading retailers creating an app experience to enhance and embrace the showrooming experience. >> reporter: and sales, what's most interesting, adobe says retailers with great mobile websites and apps will get 21% of the total sales from mobile. non-mobile savvy retailers will get about 14%, 15%. it's not that mobile is cannibalizing desktop. just retailers who aren't mobile savvy will miss out on the extra sales. looking at the data, adobe has also been looking at social media's impact on sales. social will send just 2% of
referral traffic to retailers. but adobe says 30% of people say they use social when deciding to buy. so that's a big potential opportunity for facebook and twitter if they can figure out how to monetize those habits that people are developing, guys. back to you. >> interesting data. thank you so much, our jon fortt covering some of that for us. meantime, at&t announcing that activations for the launch weekend of the ipad air up more than 200% over last year's ipad launch. apple itself has yet to release some official sales figures for the new tablet, but ceo tim cook said during a recent earnings call he was confident it would be an ipad christmas. joining us to weigh in, brian heater, senior associate editor at "gadget," and on set, collin gillis. guys, good morning to both of you. 2%, collin? apples-to-apples? >> listen, right? you have to put it in context, right? air pair launched in 42 countries over the weekend. many countries have more than one carrier, and also launched
in all of the apple retail stores, so one data point from one carrier. >> how far do you take it? >> it's a mild positive, right? generally ipads are unsubsidized devices. it's not -- it's a small pace base that at&t is likely comping off of. you know, it's better than not being up -- >> the alternative? >> right. >> brian, your thoughts on that, and why is apple being mum about the first weekend this time? >> it's really hard to say. apple is usually the first with the numbers, monday morning, they come out, have a big, celebratory press release. i can't say why. some say they may be waiting for the new ipad mini to come out. but most accounts is the ipad is selling very well. >> i can see why, right? because it's -- you know, it's likely not a number that will wow people. because last year you launched the ipad air and mini. the mini is not out, later in november. so why put out a number like that, you know? even if it's a 3- million-units
sold comparable to last year, right, and just the ipad air, optically it may not look good. >> i was going to ask, what do you think expectations are? what's the consensus for the sales they did, and what would be a disappointment? >> i don't think we're ever going to see that number given to us anyway, right? >> no, but what would the analyst community say -- >> the expectation we did 3 million last weekend with the ipad 4 and mini, and you should see a similar number, slightly less with the air launch this weekend. >> brian, is that your understanding, as well? >> yeah, i think combined they're going to do very well. it's a fair point. apple tends not numbers. they offer everything up in a lur lump sum. all of the reviews have been very good, it will be a successful launch. >> why has 530 been a stubborn resistance? >> yeah, a lot of news on the taper, right? we can talk about how many do they sell over opening weekend. apple gave december quarter
guidance be right? 55 to $58 billion, and likely at the high end or moderately above it. they're not trying to blow out numbers anymore. they want to guide realistically and reduce the earnings volatility. we have the good news for the december quarter guidance, the product refreshes. investors are looking into the march quarter where we had a big vacuum last year, and wondering what's next. >> well, and to that point, brian, wasn't 2014 supposed to be the year that apple came out with a lot of products in significant developments from its pipeline? is that still the base case? or is it too quiet on that front? >> yeah, refresh is really the key word here. so we've seen -- i mean, we've seen nice refreshes all around the ipad air. it's much lighter, much faster, same on the iphone front. cool new features there. but if they're working on some top-secret stuff, we haven't seen anything since tim cook took over. >> and that's going to get more and more focus, i suspect. collin, just briefly, the price target? >> 550. >> yeah, 550, i was going to ask -- >> i want to see the china mobile news, if that hits, how
big that could be. >> guys, an interesting discussion. we'll see if we get metrics out of them soon. good to see you both. >> thank you. >> thanks. last night ea's shooting at new jersey mall has red flags being raised in public venues and how safe america's malls really are. coming up next, we'll talk with the security analyst about this issue. also, friday's jobs number is just around the corner, and it's the data that everyone has been waiting for since the shutdown. rick santelli will talk to ed lazear when "squawk on the street" continues. weekdays are for rising to the challenge. they're the days to take care of business. when possibilities become reality. with centurylink as your trusted partner, our visionary cloud infrastructure and global broadband network free you to focus on what matters. with custom communications solutions and responsive, dedicated support, we constantly evolve to meet your needs. every day of the week. centurylink® your link to what's next.

hq with more on that. good morning. >> good morning, carl. it seems like no place is safe from violence -- schools, airports, marathons, malls -- and while it's hard to track foot traffic at malls, many believe it does contribute to uneasy sentiment. cnbc contributors say shoppers have short memories and will still hit the malls. but they believe fear will be heightened, even though it's fleeting. retailers will need to send signals to shoppers to let them know that they are, in fact, safe. mark cohen, former ceo of sears canada says fear may sideline shoppers temporarily, sending them online to shop instead of in store. in sad reality, foot traffic actually increases to the locations of the violence, as some want to visit the scene and see it for themselves. cohen says stores and malls immediately revisit the security staffing and coverage plans to
determine whether they were acting in accord with their own policies and whether or not they need to adjust them going forward. while many mall operators will likely increase security measures from surveillance to technology to personnel, the extra expense isn't typically enough to truly impact the bottom line. and former may department executive jan nippen says no one wants to make it harder for consumers to shop in store, because shoppers still hit the malls after these violent incidents. there is reluctance to add things like metal detectors and bag checks, especially at a time when the customer's already increasingly willing to sit home and shop online. if you make it harder, it might just happen a little more. kelly? >> sure, courtney. it's never been easier to shop from home. thank you very much. now, in light of the new jersey mall shooting, does security need to be buffed up at public venues? paul is ceo of risk control strategies, and he joins us now. paul, good morning. thank you. >> good morning, kelly. >> first of all, is it just our per sepths, or are the incidents
becoming more common? >> they certainly are. sand the alarming thing about this is the profile of the person, a male in his 20s, picking public venues to broadcast the disdane, that's the most alarming part about this. >> sure. what about with shopping malls specifically? >> i think they need to be measured and responsible, you know, how we look at thchl the last thing we want is a knee-jerk reaction and start throwing money at a situation that could actually deter shoppers and hurt retail. part of the main issue here is understanding where the true vulnerability is for the mall itself, and then taking a measured response. you have to also look at the business case, too, kelly. you know, we have to be responsible, in lieu of just coming out and throwing money at a situation, what is the business case of protecting the mall? where to they get the best wurn on their investment, and when do you provide peace of mind without compromising revenue? >> to take the example of last night's shooting, in that situation, was there -- was it a security lapse? what is the next step, then, in
terms of cracking down or beefing up security that a mall like that should take? >> well, it's a really good question. again, are we going to the question, really, are we going to extend and push out the exterior perimeter? are we going to install metal detectors? are we really going to expect -- and if we do that, then we could certainly have mitigated that incident. but if we do that, how many people are not going to go shopping? how many women are not going to bring their daughters and go to a mall, and what is that going to do to the revenue? so the answer is, yes, you can clearly increase presence without going into a fixed capital issue. and i think we need again to be more measured and balance and respond to this, so we provide peace of mind without expecting the owners of malls to go deep into their pocket on fixed capital expenses. >> paul, just from an optics standpoint, this happened on a week where we also had a shooting at an airport in los angeles. do you think malls are suffering from an image that they are extraordinarily unsafe, or is this just part and parcel of what's going on in the country? >> no, carl, actually, i think
it's part and parcel of what's going on in the country. we've gone from movie theaters to airports to churches to synagogues to, you know, to malls. i mean, it wasn't about a month ago where we had the incident, the workplace violence shooting out on long island. it's part and parcel to what's going on today. and a bigger issue, the bigger issue is why. what's fuelling the 20-year-old-something male to pick a public venue to broadcast their disdain. and it's something we should examine. >> we're likely to see beefed-up security this holiday. thanks, paul. >> thank you. orbitz, how will it navigate the holiday season? we'll speak to barney harford coming up, and rick is getting
ready to talk to ed la sdpleer. >> absolutely. talking about debt and the debt ceiling. we know in january we're going to all potentially have some hangovers. well, are we going to have a debt ceiling hangover? that's what we're going to discuss right after the commercial break. be there. the ocean gets warmer. the peruvian anchovy harvest suffers. it raises the price of fishmeal, cattle feed and beef.

welcome back to "squawk on the street." rick santelli here with my special guest, former chairman of the counsel of economic advisors, ed lazear. ed, you wrote a great op-ed last week about debts and debt ceilings. and before we get into discussing that, real quickly, let's just summarize. for fiscal 2013, the president can take credit -- or some of the combined programs like the sequester -- for lowering the debt to more than half -- less
than half of what it was, from $1.6 trillion to under $700 billion. >> right. >> but outside of the current obama years in the office, it's still the highest single-year deficit on record. >> well, it is. and the other point is with deficits at this level, it means that our debt is still growing at a pretty rapid pace. so in order to get the debt -- >> but it is some progress. it's just that the national debt keeps going up? >> yeah, it's some progress, because the past was so bad. >> all right. >> remember, we've got tax revenues going up as the economy starts to get better, and we have spending coming down, you know, significant part of which is the sequester itself. so both of those are working in the right direction. but we're still a long way from where we were pre-recession. remember, pre-recession, we were talking about a deficit ratio of 1.2%-to-gdp, which is a long way from where we are right now. so we still need to get back into that direction, i think. >> now, off-camera we were talking about how to control the debt. >> yeah.
>> obviously, if we look at discretionary spending, that isn't going to cut it. what was the average life expectancy when they initiated social security? >> right. well, you know, down around 65. at this point, given the longer life expectancy we have, we have to think alternative ways to structure long-term entitlements. that's the general point. you're getting to it. the big difficulty with focusing on the debt and t deficit is it doesn't treat the underlying problem. it doesn't treat the cause. the deficit and the debt get high because primarily we are not exercising spending control. and when you say, how do we exercise spending control, as you point out, we know that discretionary spending is a relatively small part of the budget. >> getting smaller every year. >> right. the only way to do that is focusing on the entitlement side. the president has said, well, we don't really have a spending problem. well, even right now, even with the deficit, it's something like 4% of gdp. that means that we're still borrowing 20% of what we need to
finance the government. so if we raise taxes, that would mean raising taxes on the average american by about 20%. over the long term, when these entitlements really kick in, we're talking about raising taxes on the average american by something, like, 50%. so unless we get spending under control, we're going to have a very different world in the not-too-distant future. >> do you think -- and we're almost out of time -- that we are going to have another repeat in january of what we just went through in october? >> well, i hope not. and what i would like to see is, again, not so much a debate over the debt ceiling, but rather a debate over spending. that's the cause. that's the problem. we should be doing that right now, and we should be getting control of our budget before we get to the situation that we faced a few weeks ago. that was a terrible situation, obviously. it ended sort of well for a short period of time. but that's not the way to handle things. we need to get the spending under control. that's the only way to do it. >> ed lazear, thank you for taking the time.
sounds like a sensible strategy to me. kelly, back to you. >> all right. thank you, rick. today, it's the senate's turn to grill the head of medicare and medicaid about the disastrous rollout of obama care. republican senator johnny isakson was in that hearing and he'll join us in a moment. the bells are about to sound across europe. we'll get you the details on the close and the impact back here when "squawk on the street" continues. farmers presents: fifteen seconds of smart. so you want to drive more safely? stop eating. take deep breaths. avoid bad weather.

today before the senate committee on health, labor and pensions. one of the members is joining us now, senator johnny isakson is a republican from georgia, and he's with us from capitol hill. senator, good morning. >> good morning, kelly. good to be with you. >> thanks for joining us. what jumped out to you from her testimony? what did you learn? >> well, unfortunately, the security problems are as bad as i thought they were. there was an announcement yesterday about a breach in south carolina. as i pointed out to the administrator tavenner today, they have hired cssi to be the coordinator of the website. in june of this year, the inspector general had cited them for violation of federal policy in exposing 6 million medicare beneficiaries' information to the internet. so security is a major issue, and they've got a long way to go. >> and security being one piece of this. of course, another piece of it is keeping the site up and running. what's the latest on that front? >> well, they're trying. they're making an effort. they're not there yet. they seem committed. but they're not there yet, and continue to have to bring the site down daily for repairs and maintenance.
>> and that's partly why, senator, a lot of people are going back to the original awarding of this contract to a firm that, you know, at a time when we have american titans of technology, one of the strongest industries globally, why aren't some of those minds working on this from the get-go in. >> the explanation for the problem is simply this. the government decided the government was better prepared to roll it out than the private sector. only ten days ago did they contract with somebody to do it. it was a terrible oversight, and it's the contributor to most of the problems. >> senator, do you believe we'll have the exchanges up and running by the end of november now? and able, of course, importantly, to get young people involved and people who don't necessarily just need the insurance, but find that it might be in their interests to shop around, the kinds of people important to the whole program's success? >> i'll believe it when i see it. we've got a long way to go. they've got a long way to go. they've got to get the information out there to the public to get the participation they need to make the program work. it remains to be seen whether
they'll do it. >> senator, the postponement of the individual mandate, is there a point at which that becomes just a windmill, where you no longer think it's anywhere close to a political reality? >> well, you've got two -- you've got a discriminatory situation going on. you put off the employer mandate but not the individual mandate. two different treatments under the same law. but putting off or kicking the can down the road is not the solution. we either need to get this right or do it, or cancel it altogether, and start over. >> so are you -- are you still pushing for a postponement of the individual mandate, or not? >> i want individuals treated like everybody else is treated, if that's part of it, that's fine with me. but the bigger question is to fix the site, get the program working and if it's not working, collapse the program. >> i wonder whether or not tavenner -- we heard sebelius, obviously, last week, reiterate that the 30th remains the target date. do you believe that's still the case? >> i that i it's going to be very difficult. >> senator, just to go back to this point, as well, so what
you're saying is that instead of delaying the individual mandate by a year, for example, to keep the program in line, perhaps with its needs or what's happening on the employer side, that you're saying it will have to be a binary outcome. either we get it right right now, or we don't get it right at all. it doesn't sound like getting rid of it entirely is possible, so does that mean you fully back the implementation of having it up and running for march? >> i want it in place for my constituents. i happen to be one of those that rolled out companies in the private sector. i think they have serious problems with the implementation, and i'm not sure it will survive. >> i see. >> i don't want it to hurt my constituents or take away the coverage they've got. >> all right. thank you for clarifying that. senator isakson, fresh off the hearing with marilyn tavenner. thanks. >> thank you. and now, just off a world series victory, he's making his way to post 9 as we speak. boston red sox star david ortiz is here live at the new york

ceo barney harford straight off the call. welcome to the network. obviously, a tough morning for you. what's going on? >> well, you know, we announced actually a strong q3 with acceleration up to 22%. and strong revenue and adjusted ebitda. you're right, you're seeing the share price down a little bit. but we are still up over -- in the order of 200% since the beginning of the year. >> yeah. and that perhaps is the bigger point that, you know, you managed to reaccelerate the business. the stock price has done miraculous things during the course of the year. but here we're back down to what is the outlook of the business? you're sandwiched, of course, between the bigger players like priceline, like expedia, spending a huge amount of money on advertising. i mean, how do you -- how do you work through not just competing against them, but moving
increasingly away from the flights, a low-margin business, the bulk of the business, and into hotels? >> absolutely. so we crossed a critical milestone this quarter. as you said, hotel is the really strategically important part of our business. it's an incredible opportunity, very fragmented, adds a lot of value, technology to add for customers. critical milestones, we passed over 50% of the revenue is now coming from the strategically important hotel and dining packaging segments. that's up 5 percentage points from a year ago when it was 45%. critical progress we're making there. the other thing we're doing to compete with the big guys, you know, we've got some really interesting things going on. we launch eed orbitz rewards in the quarter -- >> yeah, let me come onto that in a emmo. the new reward scheme, it's clearly not enough for the market. you know, undeniably, this is a very, very bad performance today, down 20%.
>> you know, we focus very much on what we're doing to run a great business, you know, and share price goes up, share price goes down. we're focused on building a great business. >> okay. >> one of the things i do want to clear up, is we've increased the full-year ebitda guidance. it was 8%, 10% in august, and increased it to 9% to 10%. share price goes up and down, but we're focused on building a great business. >> and in fairness, let's mention the rewards scheme you laumplg e launched two weeks ago where people can get all bucks, like an online currency, orbucks, they can get anything. is it anything, or is it solely the hotels that are able to spend the cash on? >> it's a groundbreaking program. we've created the currency, orbux, and it you can earn it
through the site. it can be redeemed instantly against bookings of -- against hotel bookings on the website. you can earn up to 5% in orbucks when you book a hotel on the site and earn 1% when you're booking an airline ticket. and that's on top of the points you earn on the credit card, and it's on top of the points you earn with an airline frequent flyer program. and the thing that consumers really love, is with all of the promotions we're running, no blackout dates or redemption totals. can you redeem the points immediately. >> expedia, travelocity they all have the programs. why is it transformation for you, in essence? >> i think what it really does for us is helps us take the stream of customers who have purchased airline tickets and gives them a compelling reason to think of orbitz when booking a hotel. clearly, the margins on hotel are higher, and to the extent
we're able to drive air customers to consider us for hotel, it's extremely strategically important. we're also using this to drive awareness and adoption of our mobile apps, and as a result, the earn opportunity on a hotel site is even greater when you're booking through a mobile app, and the mobile apps just make the whole experience of earning and burning really, really easy and transformation. >> barney, credit to you for coming on the network when obviously you knew you had something that might disappoint the market. it's a pleasure to see you. barney harford joining us, the ceo of orbitz worldwide from chicago. let's get a "market flash." back to headquarters with dom. >> let's check out what's happening here, overall, with course, because michael kors, the upscale retailer report and sales, beat estimates by 3 cents with fiscal second quarter profits coming in at 71 cents a share. sales also coming in better than estimates and the company also raised its outlook for the year as it continues to build sales momentum, a bright spot here,
carl. north american same-store sales up a staggering 21%. back over to you. >> all right, dom, thank you so much. they went from being one of the worst teams in baseball in 2012 to winning the world series. we're talking, of course, about the boston red sox 2013 world series champions, and joining us today on the floor of the exchange, along with 500 of our closest friends -- [ laughter ] -- big papi, the most valuable player of the world series. david ortiz. welcome. >> thank you. >> you're deep in yankee territory -- >> i know, i'm not safe here. >> we could barely get the long shot, because you were signing so many balls. [ shouts ] congratulations on an amazing season, an amazing series. people talk so much about resilien resilience. when you're asked how the club turned the season around, what's your answer? >> hey, it was a lot of guys out there. the great attitude. have an unbelievable manager, and guys with big hearts. that's all it takes. and playing for a city like new england, the nation, it's
something -- it's special. it's special. it's always an honor for myself and for my teammates to be a part of the ball club. like i said, we went through a lot this year, and i think it's slightly good movie with a great ending. >> when you hit 2,000 hits earlier, you said joining boston was one of the best career moves you've made. what's made the difference for you personally being a part of the franchise? >> well, i think that when you play in boston, it's like -- it's how i grew up playing baseball, in my country, from the dominican republic, and baseball is very intense over there. and every time you play in fenway, every time you're dealing with the red sox fans, it's the people that have the true love for baseball, and to me, it gets no better. >> it's been said in the series itself, there was a moment -- i think it's right before the sixth inning of game four, right? you actually held a little impromptu session in the dugout, and you said something, and
shortly after that, gomes comes out and hits the grand slam. what was said? what did you say? >> well, just basically, the run, one of the guys been on the team longer, i pretty much -- i'm pretty much on the bench watching things, and i watched most of my teammates just calm down, more of a depression than usual themselves. and i wanted to let them know, you know, coming to the world series is not something that you see every day. it's one time in life. sometimes there's this guy that the whole career, they never get to see a world series. and that's the time that you got to put pressure on the side and try to do your best, play the game the way you know how, and not try to overdo things. >> you said you only win once, but you've won three times. [ laughter ] >> yeah. >> what makes this win coming in a year when boston began with the marathon, the tragic events
then, and capping it off now? did it add something to -- did it make it more challenging, rewarding? how did that factor in? >> it's a very special one. i know in 2004, we won one that the team was waiting 86 years to win it. and i know that one was very special. but we're talking about two different situations right now, here. we're talking about the one that you wait 86 years and the one that you have something going on through the marathon that everybody is trying to raise money for different reasons. you know, just having family members and family affected by a bombing, something that nobody's expecting, it put everybody kind of on the same page. and also winning the world series and having the season that we have, it's kind of help people to recover, to have the mentality that they have before -- way before this thing happened. >> you turn 38 years old next month. people want to know, how much longer -- >> this month. this month. >> this month.
>> yeah, we're in november already, right? [ shouts ] how much more -- how much longer can you do this? >> i don't know, man. i'm the kind of guy that i try to work hard every day, you know, when it comes down to playing the game. but, like, everybody knows, your body start, you know, feeling different than when you were in your 20s. i don't know. i have to try to keep up with what i do, and whenever the time comes, you know, and the number-one thing about me playing the game, i need to have fun. if i don't have fun, if i don't be who i am, i don't think i can be able to perform, you know, the way people always expect me. so i thank god for everything that he has done for me and my family, and hopefully, you know, i stay healthy and continue to be successful, successful at the game, and see how long i can keep on going. >> all i know is when people here found out you were coming down, they asked us to ask you
if you would ever play for the yankees? [ shouts ] >> no! no! >> no way, baby! >> hey, that's a question you need to ask to cashin. >> i have a feeling he'd respond. you know, i'm towards the end of my career. and i think i don't have too many years left in my career. so whatever i have left, i'm pretty sure the red sox will try to keep me around and keep on playing here. so if i would have been in my 20s, it might have been a different story, but it's not anymore. but, you know, happy with where i am, and things are going well here. and, i mean, i've been in this organization so long, i don't think i will ever feel comfortable being somewhere else. and i got nothing against the yankee fans, you know? that's how it is. >> we understand. >> i'm trying to be -- >> on behalf of baseball fans, everywhere, david, thank you for the series, for the season. what a joy to watch. of course, you got tons of fans
down here. you'd be lucky if you get out of here anytime soon. >> i know. >> thank you for coming by. >> thank you. [ cheers and applause ] i think we're going to go to seema mody, check in with seema a few minutes before noon on the east coast. >> hey there, carl. the nasdaq down fractionally. it seems like the subdued -- excuse me, subdued economic forecast from the european commission is impacting traders' sentiment, especially since one of the bright spots this earnings season has been the comeback in europe. now, in parallel, we're also watching the ism services data. that came in better than expected. that's suggesting to some traders that maybe the fed will pull back on monetary support sooner than expected. but to put that into perspective, we're seeing the nasdaq trade very near the 13-year high. in terms of stocks' specific action, look at apple. at&t announcing activations for the launch weekend of the ipad air were up more than 200% over last year's ipad's launch, but we're still seeing shares of
apple trade down, again, fractionally. in terms of other new, cognizant tech, one of the outperformers today, an indian i.t. services company, earning $1.05 per share, beating estimates by 4 cents with revenue also above forecasts. european sales continue to be strong for that i.t. services company. and then, biotech, a strong -- one of the strong -- one of the bright spots for the nasdaq this year. one mover that we're watching there is generon pharmaceuticals, earning $1.25 per share, beating street's expectations. the ceo will be on "mad money" with jim cramer tonight. sharon epperson, over to you? we're looking at oil prices at the lowest levels since june. the decline we've seen in crude oil prices is good news for consumers, because it's translating to lower prices at the gas pump. we've seen growing supplies of u.s. crude inventories and gasoline inventories, and that's helping to pressure gasoline prices at the pump. $3.24 a gal today, down a penny from yesterday.
down 10 cents from a month ago, and we could see prices as low as $3.10 by the end of the year. already, five states in this country are seeing the statewide average below $3 a gallon. most of them in the central-southern part of the country. and we are looking at 35 states, according to aaa, where somewhere in that state you can find gasoline below the $3 mark. how low will it go? we found some folks in oklahoma paying below $2.70 today. you need to check around. back to you. >> all right, sharon epperson, thank you so much. tweets on this morning. mckenzie bezos, wife of amazon ceo jeff bezos, has written a tough review on the internet's largest retailer. she said the book, "the everything store," has too many inaccuracies and it brings us to the morning's "squawk on the tweet." if they wrote their own book, what would it be called? mike, audio book of bezos laughing.
greg writes, kindling closer family relations. we do love jeff's laugh. it's one of the great laughs in american business. >> and i love a pun with the kindle there. appreciate it. >> thanks to david ortiz. wasn't that fun? it really set the floor on fire today. the dow is down about 16, continues to shave some of the losses. let's get over to post 9 and wapner and halftime. here's what we're following today -- #bigwin. it scores the big ipo and what it means for business and investors, from the man at the top, ceo duncan niederhauser. the great debate after a new ceo and big runner, shares of groupon a daily deal for investors. or buyer beware? we start with the question all of us are wondering, is the rally sustainable? history suggests yet. in the past 50 years, only four other times that the s&p 500 has risen more than 20% in the first 10 months, and in each of those times, nem
