Good morning Friday June 20 seconds and that you got a ton of stories and a lot of guests coming through on the show today we've got updates from OPEC. We've got the Supreme Court ruling yesterday on sales tax or online retailers. And that we got updates on the fox slash Comcast and Disney who's gonna work out on that deal. Mike Armstrong Peter how tougher still believe in the studio today and let's just dive right in so OPEC. Really just in the last hour and a half announcing new. Increase in production limits on and on oil under increasing by a million barrels per day. So far though markets are are attracting. You don't see oil prices dropping right now. Knowing anytime you hear OPEC's say they're gonna do something you apply the OPEC discount and I think people better much better tea leaf readers that I say. This novel million barrel increase probably is more like 600000 in 2000. Barrels he's he forecast centers you know by the into the Euro of one point eight million barrel a day oh deficit in the market. All I know is less time I looked a few minutes ago ExxonMobil up two point 1% so clearly it's good news for ExxonMobil which. Means it's probably good for the stock market generally. Yeah I mean affect the matters it looks like most analysts were at least expecting this and now that's coming up that gap while they can produce up to a million barrels. It's probably gonna take them long time to ramp up. Not to mention I ran is you know a very big pieces one of the largest two races in the world. We've just. Slapped a whole new number of terrorists and you problems for them going to market their oil so they're not too excited about this. Oil prices up right now barrel of oil up two point 6% to dollar seventy per barrel. Sodium in spite of the fact that OPEC is really loosening restrictions here you concede that it's not having much of an impact and that's. It's it's inch things if you think about. 1520 years ago how this sort of news would have impacted due oil market you know when OPEC speaks to the entire oh yeah oil market would. Snapped pretty quickly and dad and and move one way or the other is just not the case anymore. Well I think a lot of people of caught on the fact that a lot of the OPEC nations are less to say an outlet cheaters and liars and he. You know they've babe make a deal in Vienna and then they go back home in cheat on it and you know the the ability of OPEC to rein in. So it's you know worst bad actor countries including Iran incredibly limited. Yep you know saudis and Iran constantly butt heads. They don't really agree on anything. Around was really disappointed that they didn't come out with a scathing statement about the United States in this whole meeting. So a lot of different things going on here but what it probably means for all of us is that. Oil prices are gonna keep on moving up in that some merlot as summer gas price certainly isn't coming down. Any time soon which brings us into our next story that our record 47 million people are expect to travel. For the US fourth of July holiday that is the record the highest number ever and so we have come up with a app poll question. You it's the poll question hop on to financial exchange showed dot com.

Back at the keeper at some point. During that. Week like you Tucker I'm not traveling because everybody it comes to marsh field for the fourth of July is it's a great spot especially the 3 July.

Going on a little bit apparently ABC is planning a spin off of Rosie and without rose. I like now I am I can't say that I was a huge. Fan of this show to begin with it. But I guess my guess they're looking at the same party sunken costs here we are spent millions of dollars acquiring this thing and rebooting it. We've paid all the actors let's find somebody can do it here. On a limb and say. This could be a totals we. Like so this show's going to be called the Connors.

Run over by garbage truck word that's going to be something very abducted by aliens. The and they. You know senator the planet or talk so who knows this could be. A surprisingly entertaining show. Yeah hey it could be you know that they're facing a tough position where they. They clearly did a lot of Pratt and marketing on this thing and I got a lot of freedom or ratings are through the roof. Where they although Craig ratings they were yet they renew that's a pretty quick for season two. And then Roseanne went off on the panel Twitter or Rampage deepened yeah a little bit of the deep Denver exam but I feel bad for via the supporting cast there obviously. To watch John Goodman.

Right here on the financial exchange radio network. And welcome back to Van Halen lack in finances and Peter and Michael Armstrong and protect him very today. And we also on the line Ben Fox Ruben from CNET who has a new story today on the Supreme Court ruling. That means you'll have to pay a state sales tax if give a state sales tax on everything you buy. On line Ben thanks for joining us. So obviously Amazon already collects sales tax in every state. This has won. Is the practical impact of this in terms of how many more online purchases people fine. The ending for 7% 6% 5% a 100%. For sales tax. I would expect a why don't even know Amazon. Collect all packed verdict direct sales. It has an entire marketplace and that that accounts for about 50% of the sale. And all those sales will now. He impacted by the Supreme Court decision though if you're buying from random mom and pop. In front and no that would they're probably have to start collecting sales. And it just simply charge you what what the cost of the height of it. Raid in Justice Kennedy who wrote the majority opinion. Estimates something like 500 billion dollars worth of a across the entire country on mine seals so. You know pick at number 5% of minutes 25 billion of new money for states all across the country. Yeah it actually depends which lawyers on what I talked to about that our school where yesterday that argued back. This is not a tax. On the the particular. Retailers to attack on the consumer and tumors are actually supposed to be paying the bills taxes but let's say. The god forbid I ever actually does something like this bright side but they are part. But for an Amazon marketplace dollar or fifty dollars under the host Q8 New Jersey where I would. The sales tax on it by did not. Then it directly to the retailer. So. What exactly that in the meeting that retailers that could actually caused that you. Have to figure out you hire is due process of all different sales tax requirement that upper upper all sorts of different it's about them that they sells well. Well I mean I was gonna say yes 45 states collect. Statewide sales tax this year none of them to my knowledge are exactly the same in terms of what they're applied to and what their rates are. Sure and Amazon can figure this out Abu I mean how difficult is it for your mom and pop online retailer Ted nude determined. The 45 different rates of sales tax and send those payments this state. It may be optional. Difficult and try to figure out back elections will be buried art there are really will be available quite yet we expect the tools would be available. They might have to Q up or on an accountant but they didn't eat that apple where they are not super warrior but the did not work. Not only which I have to figure out with a different they'll act straight start but you are. Route whether a particular type of weather clothing into your god knows like. Would actually acquire. They'll pack so. Even though it's it there was there's no art to. Either side in this court decision whether he feels taxes were justified the collect it. The actual chain goal for which happening or is pretty court decision could create a lot of problems. A smaller businesses. But let's let's say I'm a you know small moment top pop shop under selling my stuff on Etsy. Who's gonna handle this. Who's gonna handle the sales tax collection that cases at sea handling at Hermione responsible for instance on the cellar. He made this decision was stone knew that it really hard to answer that question is it possible that that he might eventually step and say hey we're gonna help our smaller sellers. Handle this type of situation. In the meantime. Small sellers might have to spend for the belt that occurred out the good news the smallest those now is that there is. A significant rational there is a significant amount of commerce and done with any particular state where special to be back with optical which was the ball. The court decision about the code hospital equipment where it had to do. 100000 dollars bail for the state where 200 peppered transaction and others include the not that hard and fast rules that. Typically in the eighth but that they do need some sort of rational. Actually figure out. Where it whether you have to start collecting sales tax but what they caught. Well one thing here. Not have to sparkle they'll pack them. Then what question am I ask you about we are the financial exchange now at the political exchange but fascinating to see. The five justices who form the majority here Clarence Thomas. Ruth Bader Ginsburg Samuel Alito. Or sick Kennedy. I have we ever seen those five judges together or and can you ever think of a case where. Roberts Breyer Sotomayor and Kagan were the minority dissent and. No I'm not. Art course Supreme Court watcher. I'd even I would really view that. It. Directed not all want to wreck regular ideological. Outbreak. We anticipate. My initial impression lies maybe this is the needy needy. They'll accident and acts are not the impact of hot button issues some of the other culture war issues like being urged that have come. For the court maybe that's why they worked out differently by. The thing and desperately a lot to age right. So it is bad and it was pretty obvious from oral argument that. Court justices really struggling to try to figure out what you what the situation because. It was pretty clear that consumers were not standing body for the state that they don't use that money was supposed to be collected. And are trying to figure out what the best way to actually in the list because. We're in effect creating a giant loophole that Internet retailers are people that take advantage. Yeah and chief Justice Roberts his point this is a decision. In a normal Eric congress would have moved to fix this from homer the other it shouldn't be up to five justices of the Supreme Court took two X effectively set. National sales tax policy. Right and at the same aren't yet Robert specifically that this is not open court should be deciding that the could be destructive. They Internet retailer that something that congress should be and not court. The other thing that's also really think about that at bat he goes. Correctly get completely decisions on the record went for fifty years ago went from 1990 do. And the court in the majority opinion for Ike couldn't be specifically that but those were incorrect decision should not on the first place the entire right yet that we are about speed. Report indeed we don't collect our our our. On which that's what that's what makes this fall which are bat and they are growing out of yours where the president the record or else. Fascinating note UBU mailed it and then factor urban. Great story that we can finance CNET Supreme Court sales tax ruling will hit you were online shopping bill thanks much for making time to tackle this or in the financial exchange them. I. Yeah it is is I mean it's a fascinating course of events not only how they voted but you know they are overturning in 1992. Ruling. But the thing about online sales back in 92 movies pretty much nonexistent at that point. And pig vis the other big question is you who is gonna do well here and who's gonna do poorly there's so many different new wants pieces that need to be figured out. He's talking about that that's different threshold the different sellers may or may not be subject just you know collecting state tax well. To hit that threshold because I'm an Etsy seller and antsy at those thresholds. A lot of new ones that need to be figured out. If I were there's a there's historian CNBC this morning. Amazon's price in the best possible place to deal with the Supreme Court ruling if you compare them to every other online retailer out there. How in all these small retailers Dick can just default to having Amazon and self three Amazon they'll worry about the sales tax collection and it's just. Through one more proof that it's in a sense world we're living in it and no matter what happens in this time wins. I mean you know there were a lot of people yesterday yourself those oh well I mean Amazon accounts for 44% of e-commerce sales. But the most well prepared to deal with the with the entire. New situations happening here. Lot more so be figured out at the very least though you think about the damage that's been done to brick and mortar retail shops across the country the last decade. Because the sales tax issue at times that you wanted to restore looked for an item. On the price shop did an opponent said that apparently some avoid the the sales tax and has ordered. Show Werman. I'm guilty but there epic real record. I don't do that. I support retailers. And I do not have an Amazon Apple iPhone. That is that is able to say hi Tucker I've I've senior I don't know that you're from ams on August. Stroke. At the small small retailers that operate their own web site right now I think now a lot of them are going to be unable to comply with this I think there's going to be the big shape up shakeup on those smaller and retailers in Yugo and by some small good from. Company in Indian that's just selling on their own website and doesn't just pay with names on Etsy. Does the ones.

Taking a look at markets right now we've got CarMax moving big time up nearly 12% airport and earnings. Much first quarter results revenue rose by five and a half percent to nearly four point eight billion to which reached far expectations. What investors are looking for net income jumped 13%. And that pretty stirrings of bad dollar 33 per share. In spite of what has been a general slowdown and used car sales CarMax clearly. Knock him park on the other hand we have about software company Red Hat. Down over 12% this point twenty dollars per share. On there reported earnings. Adjusted quarterly profit of 72 cents a share which was above estimates. And their revenue beat forecasts for its current quarter and full year guidance are well short of analysts' expectations. Mainly due to the strengthening dollars what they're having trouble with. And taking a look at you know getting an update on the bidding war for Fox News now where things stand right now. Twice it will 21 century fox the whole company and fascinating story in the Wall Street Journal. They've racially B ram Chandra and and teach Haiti two titans rocky relationship. Stands between Comcast and fox. And that take away I can save you about twenty minutes it's actually read this entire endless he. Rupert Murdoch allegedly is ticked after Brian Roberts the CEO of Comcast. Because Comcast dropped the Yankees network. And he says double crossed them a few years back remembered equitably gently. Rather sell 21 century fox to Disney they've had their bidding war between Disney. In NBC. I don't know but you might but I get to the end of this and they said Rupert is playing head games would Brian Roberts big time. Yeah I mean it seems like that and we're talking about multi 1000000010. Of billions of dollars worth of head games that they're playing with the each other right now it's pretty fascinating that you would let. I mean I suppose when your worth billions of dollars you just can do this by you know you're letting. Pasts feud where you fell accurate slightly you know betrayed. Get in the way of they have beaten the best deal for your company and maybe the best deal for the company's Disney anyway. But that this paints a pretty dramatic story here. Well you know the initial bid from Disney came in 52 billion. Which actually was you know a under the 64 billion 65 billion. Are for Comcast. That disease combat with 71000000004. Twice for century fox and the various assets. I do think you're right that the idea that kind of personal peak would. Died. Who you decide to sell to at the end of the day. You know we've seen it happen. My conclusion is Rupert Murdoch and get regret. Without learning how to squeeze every last dollar out of people when you know make you when trying to do deals. So. Either way you know to try for century fox and make is is. Such a tremendous collection of properties in programming. News movies. It's going to be great prize for Disney Warner country. Do you think one of them fits it better and you're talking about you know the sports assets for instance that that that fox has you know they have all these different local sports channels Fox Sports Net. Disney obviously has ESPN. Comcast obviously has NBC sports. Lot of synergies rather competent trying to trying to figure out where. Fox really the toy for century fox really fits better news opinion. I would say actually probably. Start sub dividing I mean them to meet the optimal outcome would be one of these two companies gets it and then. They start Wheeling and dealing and the child so you know some sports pieces of movie studio pieces. News pieces etc. and just that it's. It's so big and you know potentially. At some point in certain areas and I NC people talk a lot about the idea of antitrust concerns or. Mandated divestitures but you're concentrating a lot of programming power in one company. When you are mean Disney really needs content at this point they are they at Disney has taken the approach that they are not going to start pushing their content that Netflix or Amazon prime. They're building their own network man for them to you know grab up all these 21 century fox that that's the Simpsons in all the shows that they put together over all the movies we've put together. Now be a pretty big yet for for Disney but then again I mean Comcast obviously had network already in place to push on this continent that Jews are pretty used them. Could be. Obviously going to be huge deal whoever ends up taking it. A watch or grab a pen that we are we're hosting Penn and pay for hosting a advent coming up I'll tell you about it.

We're joined now by Adam Johnson from bulls ivory dot com. It. Adam you know we we hear how the markets moving up a little bit today Dow's up about a 115 points as we stand right now it's following an eight day slip. Mainly people are pointing at the at the trade tariffs of China and obviously market's getting a little bit nervous about that what's your take on this you know how long are we looking at these are we wouldn't be an escalation of the next few months or. Oprah all might Peter and there are at any you know I AM the ultimate optimist. Despite the Specter of the city where are everywhere though he's grumpier parking or. I think that this. Create that. And an achievement we're currently I think it'll look at battle oh you're. At every turn that there and wiggle room. There is carved out by both sides. You know you look at the most recent escalation where. China respondent in you let. There but actually. It is dark at that many good at all about Byrd B amount. And it paid well we tried it won't necessarily. You know make them effective until July there. And now we find out courtesy of Bloomberg in the Wall Street Journal this morning but it looks like they're some back channel discussions happening. Between the truck administration. And president and chief opposite trying so I really cute but at all when they wanna get that thing that'll ballots is part of the question of it. How to beat by city state and I think that's really what they are bigger. So I mean you were really just looking at a lot of Saber rattling and trying to go back to our constituents and you know follow up and say hey we sever and do something on China Reid did something on China. But I know it sounds so good but there and I don't know he'll always saying it and yet I think that honestly is what. You know what's going on you look at. Be. The current rally in Duluth Minnesota that happened a couple of days ago you know the band across the top. Very plainly as. Promises made promises. And now. You know I think that's what the truck administration is trying to do with trying to. Knowing full well that. You you can't just be completely unilateral at all that I think China is the largest buyer US debt but there is there a sister an element of great pro quo. But bureaucracy mr. trump knew what he does. Is it MO NE six people at a point of maximum pain in order to. Try you would get from them the most that he possibly and and then to get gravity and the middle you know he certainly our network Korea quote quote my partner is bigger than your -- Kerry should you know. In Europe you know brought the two are together. I continue to think if there's going to be something happened that. He can get look at shares of panic PI and a piece that we conduct is being bought by Qualcomm. Eight country departed approve it which are leading on trying to. And the beauty transaction is 427. Dollars there are trade right now they are. It could be aware of all true it probably going to set the fire adopt a long compatible I don't achieve. Because through it if the Chinese regulators as the past it is automatically goes. There instantly I mean it'll it'll quote within forty hour. But the fact of the early trading at fourteen dollar is now openly that they are not people out their big if but it could happen. Because there will still be a US trying to deal that you know effective means that it be Obama or not. If it ever get your take on the news out of OPEC about potentially million more barrels of oil come and under the market. What do you think the impact will be of that on stocks in the economy generally. Bicker bicker order that the weirdest thing that I look at my screen this morning and you know. I would originally to think getting an early in the that you guys have been talking points at you know. So excited to come on the show that are and then you know they look at it did turn the at all with that apparently an overwhelmed. There here we are I am shocked. Frankly that oil and that people will name or at some of them really out ER. Or a separate and I mean these guys and it may but he's three years it'd be you know because there's just no longer profitable to draw or what you know so much oil shales on short. The fact that oil that with the other million barrel on the market is just debate debate but it all that get to this notion that. Guy is low line oil they much prefer to try to push oil higher than two shortage in pushing lower. I'm a former world trader at the trading get you'll remember years or object going into the gulf war the first Quebec in the early nineties. And it get it one of these weird things guys load being wrong. And you know the technical currently develop and decrease defense is you know that they are excited about being blah blah blah. Oil trade very technically but if you look at fundamental supply demand the world is awash in oil. You could find another two and a half. Billion barrels per day of supply. Juba which in OPEC at it there Russia and that is that shale. And European lat and the number goes probably that three or four but the fact that they're bringing on it a million is is not a surprise that surprises that'll. Is the fact of the matter that OPEC just is becoming more and more irrelevant in the and the price of oil discussions in the trading of oil. It's what I call it Boca. And creek creek. You know like I have but that but yet exactly it. He hit the nail on the head you don't need me they're becoming a lot less relevant you know we we cracked the code on oil supply your country. I hope so. That spirit now so much oil in the Permian Basin which is an area east accuse them only a couple of hundred while. That the discount at Permian oil vs Cushing Oklahoma futures delivery oil. Is in some cases. Thirty box. I mean it's shocking I mean they get. They don't have enough storage capacity that are leaving me all over the ground because that they bring about a game in an addict I mean it is. It is. Avarice or leave it there are probably have a great weekend thanks for coming on really appreciate it's again Adam Johnson from bull's eye briefed dot com. Oh. Yeah I mean he's kind of confirming some of our own thoughts about the price of whale but it is it's. He brings an interest in perspective as a former oil trader. You shouldn't have the price of oil going up nearly two percentage points on a day where OPEC's increasing production by a million barrels today it's. You talk about. Just. Exacerbating an issue and not really paying attention to the fundamentals. We are flooded there's there's plenty of supply but the price creeping up and up and he's he's pointing it at the individual traders I don't know if that's right or wrong about it. It should be coming down today and it's not. Which is very net I think you're at that point he has no OPEC line you know it it could be that and what you're seeing is just. Zero credibility of what OPEC says or faith that OPEC really can influence. A world where you know thanks to Texas North Dakota. We are as you say awash in oil yeah. Yeah its its British and to be fair to I mean obviously demand is way up global economy is doing quite well. US economy demand for oil is is way up over the last couple of years and that's. Certainly apiece and it's so. Who knows exactly what's moving the price of oil of their ton of people that are betting on it one where another at any given point in time. Let's check in on the markets real quick taking a look what we're talking about with the oil markets price of oil now op. A barrel of oil is now up two dollars and 25 cents three and a half percent Brent up a little bit less than that. US markets right now the Dow Jones up a 119 points one half of 1%. S&P 500 up.

This is the financial exchange with Barry Armstrong in chunks of you're exclusive look at business and financial news affecting your day your city your world. Stay informed. And up today about economic and market trends plus get breaking business news every day. And now the financial exchange with Barry Armstrong and sharks done us. Go to back to financial exchange Mike Armstrong Peter how old tiger still play studio with you today and here I wanna just then and there to going back to the east oil story on OPEC and oil. OPEC this morning releasing news that they are increasing the number of sales barrels per day by a million. Barrels. New oil coming into the market. Probably not gonna hit that new million dollar a barrel mark right away is him country need to amp up. But nonetheless the oil market reacting. Pretty strangely this morning with oil prices up. Two dollars and 35 cents a barrel three and a half percent increase in the price of oil brand tepid dollar 52%. And it just appears that OPEC really having very little in the way of influencing the price of oil these days. Absolutely and I think people looking at the broader macro trends strength of the economy. Says the price of oil is essentially. A barometer of border people think is which direction is the global economy going in and how well our China India other developing nations doing turning people into middle class consumers and you look at those trends. Those are what drive up the price of oil. Overtime and not to bash OPEC too much but. It's an organization that definitely has a battery pack it's got its credibility issues as as an organization and it's got a lot of known. Lying and cheating. Weasels as members who say one thing in Vienna and then go do something else in the gulf or elsewhere in the world. That they do. Changing directions quite considerably to a company that really has nothing to do with oil Tesla announced. This today if they're going to be closing solar facilities in nine states remember that Tesla acquired solar city dad was that five years ago two years ago. Pretty controversial deal they paid two point six billion dollars for the solar city company which was struggling a little bit. To view on mosques cousins were heading solar city for anyone that forgets about this deal it was pretty shady looking on the surface fail out. Hey yeah exactly and you know now tests that seems to be paying the price a little bit. Their stock by the way is down about 3% this morning. Their really have still the most heavily shorted stock in the world I think Tesla I believe a lot of people are lining up to bet against Elon Musk they are you know it's been a really really rocky twelve months for tests in take a look at Bear's stock price this time last year they're treating it 38261. There currently trading at 337. They've gone down as low as 250. 252. So we have very very rocky road for this company last twelve Felix. I feel like you lawns had an awkward 2018. So far too you have a whole April Fool's Day tweet frank saying and then he got into its half with the press on a earnings call and Jews only fielding questions from some 23 year old. You know from unknown web site pretty much the end you know the whole thing with this employee colonize its just been weird for you on. It is and you. Tesla is very much a CEO driven company you know there are some and CEOs can operate behind the screen and just let the company do the speaking that is not the case with Tesla deal on muskie very much puts himself out there. It's been alerted the success of tests Avery we can't we can't discount that mean he is day. Magnetic CEO that draws investors. Butts. They've been really really facing cost issues over the last 1218 months. Really trying to hit their production numbers on the new Tesla model three and in falling short. Does that get in there and we should point out the solar city. The subsidiary. To the offices at the installation offices are going to be closed on our in our listening area New Hampshire and Connecticut and hopefully you know it's a robust. Economy. A great job market hopefully people. In Connecticut New Hampshire affected by the shut down. Are quickly land and feed elsewhere but. One of the numbers you look at first quarter this year Tesla installed 76 megawatts total of solar systems. If you look at what's solar city was doing the same quarter injury in 2016200. Megawatts so. And you lines watch solar city installations of dropped 62%. Over the last two years and it's also an incredibly complicated. Regulatory driven market I can bore you to death talking about net meter in camps but there are. On these government policies rebates camps credits that affect. The actual price and demand for solar it's a tough area player. It is and while you have seen to my knowledge of these you've seen overall the government to impact mean subsidies for homeowners to put these new panels and have been decreasing in the last few years. It cost themselves the solar panels has also been decreasing pretty rapidly. And so in spite of the government subsidies going down the cost the panels themselves have been dropping the installations in stainless payment. This than falling sales a solar city's been experiencing there are varies substantially yours you're seeing these cuts happening. At a time when. Tesla could really use a little bit cash flow from there the business units upon what page in there high schools here producing new cars. In update on the the Hoover crash that happened Helen good has happened to the crash that. Go well this wasn't the out of this is the Tempe says is not march break. And bruises along the dash video yet all of this the same. Is different more is the one in Tempe and issues on our phone. Yeah it turns out choose their own streaming whose. Yeah she's watching the voice shoes would you don't need to watch by the way because it's called the voice you hear it you can listen to deploy its. To singing competition. Yeah. The judges are literally don't watch the singer's. The back at it. The chairs and I don't know she's an app to be Washington's. Susan what's her face from Scotland one bill that's lawless action at the X-Factor are simple as like Simon Cowell show me these terrible defense used ala is I had this idol watcher but this plane album out there he seems to know a lot. Yeah yeah I agree just read the recaps every day and Gloria deep in the reach us. I mean the police have looked at this crash though is say is deemed entirely avoidable if the driver have been paying attention on it and just. Continued bad news trooper on the self driving car front Google seems to be really really pulling away division. Separate story here trump proposing combining the workforce training and welfare programs and the whole agency revamped. Basically taking you know a lot a look at a whole bunch of different government agencies trying to put them together. Along with that you would likely have some pretty substantial costs here which is why it's getting. Really unlikely to move through congress both from the right in the left kind of pushing back on this in what's awesome is. Even in bureaucratic reorganizing. Trump is trolling people so you take the education departments and Labor Department. And serving giant screw you to organized labor that department becomes known as the department of education and though workforce. It no more reference to waver and then you take. All the different. Government. Cash assistance food stamps public welfare. Programs nine the of them across all. Kinds of different firms including US Department of Agriculture. Is the major source him or snap and then a lot of cash assistance from food those all get rolled into a new department of health and public welfare. And the theory here is once you put the word welfare in the name and agency. Ever problem wants to cut its budget so I don't. I think you're exactly right doesn't go to worm election year. It's funny how many rock solid conservative. Republican congressman suddenly don't like it when they lose oversight of the department or. A merger effects. Staffers in their district so to wash it shake up in tea election year doesn't help things that correct you know launch up proposal but it stinks during the fight.

We're joined now by Paula Monica CNN money who's got a little bit of FaceBook update forests. Pauline I take a look at Facebook's last twelve months it's been pretty wild with every all the investigations. Hearing on Capitol Hill. Stock has completely recovered from that volatility in and sound now trading above 200 dollars a share. One of the biggest risks to the stock and where does it go from here. Got a great question I think obviously east they'll have to consider a Brett regulation in eighty possible routes whether or not. You would he government not just the US but perhaps others around the world cracked down on. FaceBook and other social media companies because of what happened in the you can problem. I'm not so sure. It that they risk and I think investors. Not that while they they'll be very strong earnings and revenue growth going forward is advertisers though there. Users are still there even if you know corporate war platform. LB slowing a bit you know FaceBook dot don't hit the ground and what apps that obviously popping up as group as well to just top dollar ability to people users as well. I mean that you bring up at a point yet they do Lawrence Graham they have a lot of different channels to advertise to but should we be concerned about. The actual FaceBook users and they topped two point 19 million. She two point 19 billion. Monthly active users. But we keep seeing the average age go up younger users aren't adapting and I look at that and say you. Where is this company going to be ten years from now is they're really a mark to be made if you don't have those teenage users. And now that is a great question might countered that argument is that for all of the talk about how. FaceBook is no longer cool anymore it is 45 year old pollsters like DR. You know we still have peace but having integrate and grow an incredibly rapid rate and we see it. In the Gramm does not the be all that term in a date. Jet does something it can't wait a couple of months and copies of them wanted to put more users. More revenue of more. Europe and earnings though. Have long used FaceBook connect to keep I think that the critic in the had. That you were platform bowl. Terms of its growth prospects as well it Apogee to be users. He's been beat him he'd be a little silly if I attack jet actors and baby boomers bill spent a lot of money. I want pot as well not just the. Yen as the parent Maloney also tell you millennial spent a lot of money on behalf of their parents as well. We we just saw appalled that it's Graham has launched a new hub for long form video called I GTV. Big deal. Gabby I'm not making bearish bullish call just reporting what the numbers are and yet I'm still pretty promising. Think that. News to Graham long form video probably is going to be something that we will be. Yet another successful in the Korea. What we see with match park they're only following we're. What the users like where the market go that the kind of vertical video might also be something that appetizers what. Find to be a bit more compelling. Quick spot in the the studio while so I think that it programs that was pretty to position. You know I saw the story a few weeks ago I'm sure you read over to FaceBook trying to make inroads insert. Give true news media and acquiring some talent there to set their own kind of news channel that there be producing it actually acquiring talent. It sounded like it was go and I don't know massively would be the way I would describe it have you heard anything further on that they still working otters it is that not something that's a big focus for face but it. I think it is an area focused that your your bright that it you know it's been a little bit of a mixed bag and I think. That is we here at the wrong race. You'll potentially alienating. You know partners as well I think one reason why they can. Google had been able to view that you cracked as much. Appetizer dollars and is because of course the number of users that habit. Having that that future is also made some compelling. Partners toward big media companies like artwork for I think that it oh you know update but it. Goes to our. You're content creators aren't right particularly the going to be. Well I mean in the regulation that you face in that sector is a lot different than what Facebook's facing now although. Perhaps they're already being regulated as a media company at this point and so why not get into it. Yeah you could make that argument that if there's going to be you're more regulation coming in line Horry. War. The uber. Media business again I mean. People talk about these. There. At the end of the day there's a huge difference between a which they chip advertising which. And apple which sells. They. I. It. Absolutely and took captured as like bringing up that points out all the life and dimension that he he certainly doesn't agree our remember his is nice speech that he had about FaceBook vs apple Paula really appreciate counted on Paula Monica from CNN money you have a great weekend. Yeah hey it is. Take a look at the way that stock has performed at NATO they're not alone every every. Pretty much tech company NASDAQ has had this sort of twelve to eighteen months trajectory Facebook's witches. Pretty nerve racking in between while. Taking a look at another story about the grocery delivery business you're talking about big name tech companies obviously had the Amazon acquisition of whole foods. And and really jumping deeply into the rushing delivery by it pretty much overnight it looks like Kroger has become. A leader in the grocery delivery business. Major new deal with the company out of the united can call oh Colorado. And they're gonna build twenty warehouses automated warehouses. To help Kroger deliver or next three years. Deliver food to people in the 35 states were Kroger. Operates a fortunate closest bird gets US is Virginia there really kind of mid west southwest. But giant new warehouses not just for home delivery but also. To put together online orders he would drive down your local Kroger and pick up and Mike one of most fascinating numbers in here is in the UK. Roughly 6% of all food seals are on the line. You remember of that you have with that same numbers in America when 3% to that 2% 2% though it IEA I think of UMass stuff that Mike. Kids seem to buy on line to eat from. Amazon and it shocked me that numbers as low as it is it is 2%. And most of that stuff today is just him bottled water Ngo and coffee pods for the for the instant coffee and stuff like that. Chris gets. What what oh Colorado brings to this markets and that's Amazon does not have the ads that instead cart doesn't have is. A serious. Leak and leaked. Ahead in terms the technology used to distribute this food efficiently now. The UK their presence right now is just in the UK and U admittedly have a varied different geography and in the UK we have a much more spread out population much more rural population here in the United States. But Amazon and you know and inspired us to build this technology on the round. Not yours specifically in the dealer Kroger may with the cada. It barred the UK company for sharing its technology with any other US retailers. They've kind of blocked everyone else out this. I'm not gonna discount Amazon's ability to figure out you know grocery delivery because they've got their supply chain stuff down pretty down pat but. This clearly came as a big surprise in the markets and you know we've been beating up on Kroger ever since the games on all of those acquisitions this is that at least a step in the right direction. What you guys I still wanna see that red pepper and pick it up myself before it taken arguing checks out a ball at times are change and. That's all the time we have five for the financial exchange for the week have a great weekend. And we will catch up the next week.
