12:00 pm
trish regan's interview with juan guaido the venezuelan opposition leader live tonight on this network, 8:00 p.m. eastern. my time is up. neil, it is all yours, sir. neil: thank you very much, stuart. looking forward to that interview later tonight. around that time we could be dealing with some very frigid temperatures, certainly gripping the midwest, east coast, looking at snow. right now 250 million in the path of a monster that is known more for the cold than any snow. for example, in chicago it is colder than it is in antarctica. to fox news mead roll exist adam klotz with the latest. what are we looking at? >> neil, it is two-parter, cold cold weather this is true cold front behind it. that is where the cold air is and we see the numbers really drop behind it. as this system moves across
12:01 pm
portions of east you may see storm watches and warnings in inland areas. there may be six inches of snow or more in new england. the story isn't it is a snow-maker but the temperatures truly plummet on the back side of the system. this is where the cold air is lingering right now. so negative 30 in minneapolis. negative 14 degrees in chicago. negative six degrees in indianapolis. this is just the beginning. i would like to say it is coldest it will get. it is nowhere close. these numbers will be really falling. looking at huge area under windchill watches and warnings. getting down close to the ohio river, this is large area in places where typically get this kind of a freeze. it will be stretching into these regions. here is the forecasts windchill. running through times here. you see getting down to close to negative 50 in chicago early morning with the indchild. feel like. same in minneapolis. stretching over towards detroit, negative 32. negative 30 in indianapolis.
12:02 pm
unfortunately doesn't get a whole lot warmer. then wednesday morning and thursday morning you're back in similar territory. negative 42 in chicago. it does shift a little bit over to the east. neil, good news for me walking to work, it never gets as cold for us here in the east coast but still negative 10 degrees on thursday morning this cold will be really hanging around. if you're outside of this region, not talking about negative 50s anymore. this is huge area where folks wake up into the 20s, going down to the gulf coast, an area where it is typically not that cold. this is a major freeze. we're talking about hundreds of millions of people dealing with it. neil: think of you walking through all of this. you're young, adam. >> don't worry. my mom would be proud. neil: i'm not too, too worried. me on the other hand that is another story. meanwhile spikes in energy, this might have something to do with it as well, snow or cold to the
12:03 pm
point, we have scout bauer. scott, the whole venezuela thing mystifies me to this respect we thought they had been alienated in the global markets for a lot of their stuff but not entirely, right? so what kind of disruption are you looking at? >> you know there is somewhat of a disruption to some of the refiners down in the texas area, neil, but at this point right now i'm confused as well as you just said and i think this is really an emotional and psychological trade in the oil space, why we're seeing this rally today, more so than it is really what the effect at least in the short run is going to be of cutting back all of the exports from venezuela. neil: so if you had to look at what could affect prices we're told you know, you compete with a global slowdown, then you have got more american energy production, you have got, you know, this wicked cold weather that will probably have more direct impact on natural gas
12:04 pm
prices for the time-being but play that all out for me. >> so you know, the market has really moved basically on the supply and demand issue. we don't know, is it lack of demand or the oversupply? it has been this vicious circle for the last three months, six months or so right now we definitely have a glut. we're going to get numbers coming out later today tomorrow from ap a&e ia, looking at what inventory builds might be. we have absolutely a glut as the u.s. keeps producing more and more and is approaching the 12 million barrel-a-day number. now it is that combined with how bad is the global slowdown? is it temporary? what is going on in china. it is the vicious circle. even though we have a pretty good rally today in the oil space i do think there will be pressure. i do think we'll hit 50 sooner rather than later. i really think the headwinds are really going to take over any
12:05 pm
sort of risk we're sighing coming out of venezuela right now. neil: markets normally trade just on fear of instability. it doesn't have the material effect on the supply but the fear it could. if you're looking what is happening in venezuela now and a country where two guys are claiming right to be a president and that could drag on a while, then what? >> there is no question the longer this drags on really what is going to happen the more complacent the market is going to be. really what we've seen in the equity space as well. if you go back to the first major selloff we saw last february, when we saw the vix go over 50, with every subsequent selloff, things got a little tamer, things got a little tamer. we didn't see quite the volatility. i expect the same thing to happen in the oil space now. neil: all right. we'll watch it, very, very closely. scott, thanks for taking the time. >> thank you, neil. neil: in the middle of these trade talks that resumed today in washington with a top chinese
12:06 pm
delegation and u.s. delegation, and of course when they all arrived officially tomorrow to begin them, you have to wonder what is the outside effect of the indictments of the huawei cfo and who is daughter of the founder no less and how that complicates things? will that have anything to do what they are ultimately offering? to stanford school of business lecturer, dave dotson. what do you look for, professor, now, from these talks? >> oh, boy, it will be a big deal, no question about it. the treasury secretary said it will not complicate the trade negotiations but that is or the of absurd. if you need any evidence look how the indictment was announced. the acting attorney general standing there, next to him was the director of the fbi, next to him was the director of homeland security, if that wasn't enough, we bought the commerce secretary and treasury secretary to announce an indimement.
12:07 pm
what world do you bring the commerce secretary to announce an indictment. this is a big deal with the trade negotiations, but even if you say i don't buy any part of that, china's perception on this is what matters. as you said in the lead-up, it isn't if we executive of a company in china. we arrested the daughter of the founder of one of the most venerated companies in china. this is like bill gates' daughter is and china is outraged about it. this is the real tom clancy part of it that is intrigue. there is allegation that huawei and chinese intelligence services are integrated together. that is frightening if that is what the companies does. if that is true, you can be certain she knows about that she may be in u.s. custody. make no mistakes when the trade negotiators got on the plane when they go to washington, d.c., one of the things we were told, bring her back. neil: what if they don't, they
12:08 pm
don't letter come back and then what? >> it gets pretty intriguing. first of all, she is not in u.s. custody. she is with the canadian government. canada holds the cards. china is putting a lot of pressure on canada. to give you the sense of seriousness of this, there is canadian citizen sentenced to 15 years in prison for drug charges. he was brought out in a one-day trial and resentenced to the death penalty. so the chinese government is holding a canadian citizen for the death penalty right now. they're serious about getting her back. neil: you know i'm just wondering, i know we're dealing on two separate tracks here, but these tracks are going to collide, right? i mean i don't see how they can i don't see if we are elevating this to the degree we have, commerce secretary there and everybody else, first i thoughted they wanted wilbur ross for the charisma aspect, but leaving that aside, obviously was a full press,
12:09 pm
right, to do this? it has got to complicate these trade talks. i can see the chinese holding back in the middle of this. >> or it could be a card that we have. president trump said to reuters not too long ago, he would intervene it would help the trade talks. neil: can he do that, professor? clarify that for me. some told me can't intervene in this, it's a legal matter, or can he? >> wealth indictment -- i'm not a lawyer but the way i understand it the indictment is handed down by the justice department. and the justice department reports up effectively to the president. if you buy into the unity theory of the executive branch he could in fact do that because the prosecutor has discretion who he would prosecute and who he wouldn't but, neil, sort of begs the question why are we doing this? we could be doing this because we're getting tough on crime and certainly that is what we're presenting to the public t could also be, maybe as you were indicating it is part of the trade deal. there is also another piece
12:10 pm
which is quite intriguing. you remember have what huawei does. they sell basically the heart and lungs throughout the telecommunications system. we're rolling out 5g network. this moves the technology from sell phone to the your tv and refrigerator. if the company and chinese intelligence information services we're seeing a world, china has moved their intelligence out to our devices. that is frightening. maybe that is what is going on here, we're trying to stop the rollout. neil: so we maintain an edge whatever happens with 5g? >> not just an edge. there is the commercial aspect of it but there is really the intelligence aspect of it. the united states already said you're not allowed to put your equipment in the united states. their markets are europe, asia and the middle east. europe is already taking a pause, maybe we'll not have them roll out their equipment into
12:11 pm
europe. that would delay the 5g rollout in europe by two years. it's a big deal and the company has a history of not only selling things to iran. they sell hp equipment to iran but they have a history of espionage or alleged espionage and that is something we need to take seriously. look what happened to marriott, we have sort of forgotten it, not too long ago 500 million customers, their data was hacked into marriott of which, 350 some million passport numbers were hacked. this sort of ability to get into your networks is a frightening thing from a u.s. security standpoint. i think this is more about u.s. security than it is about commerce. neil: that's interesting. i didn't think of that. professor, thank you very much. why didn't i have professors like you when i was in school, explaining things very clearly even a thick skull like mine can comprehend? >> i don't think it is that thick. neil: you have to see it to believe it. dave dotson, stanford school of business, interesting read on

>> with respect once again we disagree with the cbo. i don't think we'll lose anything. this is completely temporary. none of the incentives in the economy have been changed by this. neil: i would imagine he will either declare an emergency or he will shut the government down, right? >> well it would be complete failure on the part of nancy pelosi's leadership, a failure to lead her conference and what the government, what the public wants. they want a solution. they want both sides to be contributing to this. both sides cooperating. neil: well both sides better do something the next 1days, -- 17 days, or we could face another shut down.
12:17 pm
senator barrasso said that is last thing they want to see and suicide run to that. former special assistant to president trump, and former press secretary to vice president pence, marc lotter. signal i got out of a lot of republican senators, they don't want to go back to this well. what happened behind closed doors at the gop luncheon with the vice president, it got acrimonious, they don't like being tarred with this. is it that bad. >> you heard sarah sanders say during the white house briefing he doesn't want the government shut down again. i was an at an event he spoke last night, he said the same thing last night. it takes two sides to negotiate. so far we still have not seen a response to the president's offer, nor a counterproposal, only answer has been no. neil: i don't know what is going on even behind the scenes in the conference committee but andrew, is it your understanding that nancy pelosi's view that is a
12:18 pm
wall is immoral not shared by a lot of her colleagues? steny hoyer was here, her number two, saying he did not agree with that. that he didn't see it necessarily as a bad thing. seemed to be open for some wall funding. i talked to the deputy blip who is of the same mind that some wall funding would be okay, whatever we do to settle this, it will not might be, not at 5.6, $5.7 billion that president trump wants, but something. what am i missing? >> look, i think that we need to deal with smart security. that is what democrats have been talking about a long time. let's have a conversation about security that would really work, right? we know the wall is archaic idea that isn't going to work in the 21st century. neil: it is not archaic in the san diego, tijuana border. >> you're not going to get rid of the tunnels that are still going on underneath any sort of barrier. we need to have --
12:19 pm
neil: but would you say the one along the san diego, tijuana border seems to be working just fine? >> look, i don't think they are working, no. will the democrats -- neil: that refutes what democrats have been republicans telling you, that one works just fine. >> i think when you look at congressman will hurd who represents the largest land mass of southern border in congress says that the wall doesn't make any sense, right? i think what is going to happen, we'll have a conversation about, and sit down and let's talk comprehensive border security, what do drones look like? what do -- neil: well i think the president and republicans are open to that, right? i just hair when the democrats hear wall, they just go -- >> listen to president obama's former head of customs and border patrol who said walls work. democrats used to support walls. they voted for them many times. what we need is an additional 250 miles. that is what the people work in
12:20 pm
the field are actually telling us. neil: marc, you are of the mine set to be clear, i find more agreement than meets eye among democrats and republicans on this, it doesn't have to be all walls everywhere, right? >> absolutely. there was a poll out i saw this morning showed 61% of voters in districts carried by the president, represented by democrats in congress believe the president is right on border security. 53% of those democrat now-controlled want a wall in as part of a border security package. democrats when they are going to ignore the will and information from the experts and voters are going to have a real problem. >> look, the president was the one who was ignoring the will of the voters. you saw what happened, why he had to pivot himself out of the shutdown because his numbers were plummeting, and his support for the waa was plummeting. neil: what do you think democrats should do then? >> sure. neil: they have a chance to do what? >> i think we should absolutely
12:21 pm
sit down to have a real conversation about how we do comprehensive border security that makes sense. neil: but you can do that in 1days? can you do that in 17 days. >> we need to. neil: i know you do but you're not going to. >> if the president is serious about this. neil: why is the one has to be serious about it? why is the one has to be serious about border security. >> the president is not willing to move off 5.7 billion. neil: and democrats have not been willing and shifting positions as well. >> neil, he was playing pawns with the daca people, students here. neil: he argues saying all of that, what would make him want to enter into an agreement with democrats entering into the negotiations cynically? >> let's make real agreement, neil, deals with actually solutions to problem. neil: fair enough. what do you make of that, marc, what would be actual solution to the problem you think republicans would be willing to accept, if not the full 5.6 billion for a while? >> president already made the offer. he included billions of dollars
12:22 pm
in more funding for technology and personnel at the points of entry. he has talked about increasing number of immigration judges, the number of people at customs and border patrol that are actually patrolling the border but democrats don't want to hear these ideas they support. >> no. >> they just want to say no, they are locked down on resistance. >> completely disagree with that. neil: we don't know, right. >> completely disagree one thing, completely disagree. the president, yes, talking about more patrols, more enhanced technology, that is one thing but he is still stuck on 5.7 billion. that offer was not compromise and it was a nonstarter. neil: we don't know what the final number would be or what is in his head or anyone else's. >> sure i think we need to have conversation. we can't trust the in messenger. neil: >> they're ignoring experts so. neil: i wish we had more time. blessedly, we do not. very good having both of you here. we have the dow up about 130 points, weighing through these

[booing] neil: and he didn't even get a latte for that. a little dust-up at book-signing event in manhattan that comes with the territory.
12:28 pm
but this idea that howard schultz run, especially independent run, for the presidency would open up the door to re-election of donald j. trump. that happened to fellow yeping at billionaire. what do you think. >> if democrats are this terrified of schultz, they must considered what are they offering people that will make so many people in the center of the country defect from the democratic party. trump is going into 2020, with very high unfavorables, but, if they think that schultz running opposing single-payer, opposing wealth taxes, opposing 70% top marginal income tax rates if they think that schultz opposing that will detract from their base, maybe they need to offer better candidates to their constituency? neil: well the fact that schultz is criticizing a lot of the positions of these candidates from the 70% top rate that has been bandied about, even though
12:29 pm
she is not a candidate, can't be, she is too young, congresswoman cortez, others like elizabeth warren and that are talking about a tax on wealth and all that, he says that is the wrong direction. that chafe as lot of democrats? >> yes. he is certainly correct. i mean if you look at what trump has done with tariffs, if you look at the space that he sort of created for the liberal or socially moderate fiscal conservative, there is a constituency there. so democrats deciding to run on the promise of remaking america into this socialist utopia, if they are concerned that will turn away voters they need to look in the mirror and consider. the whole idea from the center of american progress camp that schultz's only running because he is billionaire and he has no political prowess, why are you going to make him the secretary of the labor department in 2016 as hillary clinton planned on doing? neil: there is that. i am wondering too, whether in
12:30 pm
this parity right now, there would be room for a bill clinton, moderate democrats to emerge as he did in 1992? >> yes. right now you have amy klobuchar confirmed she won't support medicare for all as current legislation stands. it remains to be seen how biden would take on the issue but increasingly that looks like that is the fringe of the party, not its core constituency. neil: the third party candidate i want to be clear, you could argue that ross perot getting 19% of vote in 1992 took a lot away from george bush, sr. others told me split equally from bill clinton and george bush, sr. i don't believe that, but that someone had input on the election even though he didn't get any electoral votes. but do you think, if schultz were to run, that he would be draining votes from whoever the democratic nominee ultimately is? >> well, it depends, seems like
12:31 pm
single-payer as currently stands is not polling terribly well. neil: most people don't know what it means? >> no. when they care about the cost of it they aren't terribly supported. neil: unless the cost is someone else not them. >> people realize it involves shortages, 40% lower reimbursement rates for physicians, they are a little less keen on it. perhaps could take away from the democratic base. neil: thank you very much. good seeing. >> you thank you. neil: there is that other billionaire michael bloomberg who right now will be in new hampshire. contemplating a run as a democrat, not an independent. charlie gasparino has been following fast-moving developments. hey, buddy. >> interesting. that guy looked like he had too many lattes, the guy who was screaming. neil: overdo it. >> combination of the caffeine and sugar from the pumpkin spice. neil: i've been there. >> that is why you are bouncing off the walls. neil: absolutely. >> every day here. neil: but that was funny all
12:32 pm
things aside. >> that was good. listen -- neil: they act up like that at your book signings or events? >> i get wall street guys that -- neil: so you know. they do get nasty. neil: i get people hooked up to oxygen. >> that is better. neil: they're very nice. >> wall street guys are kind of big, kind of nasty because i cost them money. neil: they don't like you. >> it always, when i'm in a restaurant, not with the guys i grew up with, but with some scrawny like, my publisher or, some editor, never tony palumbo or tommy tucker, the guys that would hit their heads off. neil: bloomberg and the run, he is running? >> i should point out i've been speaking with people at bloomberg over last couple days -- neil: bloomberg the company? >> the company. news division. i have a lot of friend the there. i believe it has a first rate news division. neil: one of the best. >> really smart people. people i worked with over the years. couple things, they hear from him, okay, and this is like what he has told people there, that
12:33 pm
he wants to run. there is no doubt that he is not just -- neil: this is his moment, right? >> he wants to run. he will be 677 in a couple weeks. next one will obviously be too old for it, this is his moment. he has got the money. should point out this is not like trump billionaire, where if you add a couple buildings it is illiquid. he has $47 billion. neil: is that right? >> he has probably 10 or 20 in treasury bond he could write a check for 2 billion easy. the question is now will he run? some people are divided internally. yes going forward, every indication, public comments, what he said internally. other people think, nah he doesn't want scrutiny. they had a few me me too situations.
12:34 pm
the real interesting thing what he runs that people are worried about internally, they believe, a lot of people in there, we're talking 3,000 journalists, 120 countries, print, broadcast, radio, the whole thing, there is very good chance he will have to sell the company if he does run. why is that? list, remember when he was mayor. he didn't sell it. armies lengthed it. i can't remember who -- neil: wasn't if he wasn't keeping very close eye. >> remember, covering new york city hall is very niche beat for bloomberg. covering a major president who might become president, even if he does become president, affects every beat at bloomberg. and so the thinking is, you just can't put it in a blind trust. you will have to sell it. neil: not like if you're a trump hotel worker? >> very different. a little different. trump hotel workers don't have the megaphone "bloomberg news" has. so i think that is the problem. and so that is the palpable -- neil: then who would buy it? >> i don't know who would buy
12:35 pm
it. who has got the bucks? peter thiel, who has got money to throw around, always -- neil: how much would it go for? >> i don't know. neil: certainly more than "the washington post." >> yes. the company itself, remember here is the other thing people are worried about internally, the machine, the terminal, the data is what is, you know, where they make a lot of money. the news is kind of like a value-added aspect of that. i could make the case that traders love the news, because it moves markets, they do. neil: absolutely. >> so together it is hard to break them apart but people internally think there is a good chance they are going to break it apart. so that's -- if he runs, the next question will be what does he do with the news division and i'm pretty sure -- neil: he wouldn't unless and until he reaches white house? >> if i goes for it, it will be serious.
12:36 pm
he will spend a billion or two billion. how much did they spend in total. trump didn't spend a lot of money. one before that, it was like total of a billion. imagine mike bloomberg literally writing a check for billion for himself or two billion. neil: his move if he does run, not to do the schultz thing, run as independent. he toyed with that in the past but obviously felt it's a nowhere mission. >> i've been following mike bloomberg for years. i know he spoke very deeply with people about it in the past. he doesn't think you can win. he is going to run as centrist democrat. neil: he was a great mayor. >> i thought he was really good. neil: except for sodas. >> real question is, your last guest brought it up, centrism does that sell the democratic party? neil: passe. >> we may find out. neil: 40 seats democrats gained in the house, most were centrists moderate. >> pennsylvania, all the states trump won. there is appetite for logical people with normal dispositions
12:37 pm
in the -- neil: so you're out? >> i will never make it. i never made it in this party. neil: charlie, thank you very, very, very much. we'll watch it closely here. something happened with home prices beginning to worry some folks. sales still grew and sale price still increased but at rates that were the weakest increases in years. what that means to this pillar of any recovery after this. y and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today.

neil: all right. what comes around, goes around, apple directing spy bug, same invasion of privacy tim cook was railing against for facebook.
12:49 pm
apple and oranges technology there. what has come around controversial issue for the same company that was lecturing. susan li has more. >> you know what they say about karma, neil. let me take you through this. discovering this security flaw on the group's facetime future on iphones. discovery was through a security flaw. group facetime allows 37 users to chat face-to-face on the iphones. this was expanded on one-on-one in latest ios operating system upgrade apple rolled out in september but what users discovered, if you're calling somebody and then you add another caller on to a group chat while it dials and person doesn't have to accept the call, you can hear them through the microphone. apparently i can test this, because they already disabled group facetime when you do try this. if you're on group facetime, if you hit power buttons or you can
12:50 pm
access the camera. i don't want that access and privacy invasion. apple today telling us they disabled group facetime. saying we are aware of this issue. they will offer software fix sometime this week. jack dorsey of twitter already disabled his facetime as others should as well. now apple as you mentioned, lecturing, being evangelical when it comes to protecting privacy, saying they are above everybody else in silicon valley really. >>ing a lot of people. look at the billboard in ces in vegas. what happens on your iphone stays on your iphone. at ces a lot of big competitors facebook does show up. they were not happy about this. and you know, zuckerberg apparently told their employees, all employees at facebook to use android instead. you wonder why at this point. apple is reporting results, today, neil, after the bell. this is big one to watch.
12:51 pm
apple is still one of the biggest companies in the world. they guided lower expectations when it comes to revenue. first time they have done that in 16 years. here analyst estimates, 73.97 billion. interesting to note, 83.97 billion is the less than the 84 billion they guided in december. i guess the market isn't so optimistic on apple numbers. but they said all the bad news is pretty much out there. so sets the bar pretty low. we might get an easy beat for this company. neil: so they have stopped facetime, group facetime, right? can't chat with bunch of people at same time? >> for now. up to 37. you should disable that. neil: i was getting together with couple of my bond market buddies, talking money supply. >> so exciting that. >> is my life. susan li, thanks very much. go to market watcher keith fitz-gerald on all of this.
12:52 pm
it is reminder be careful pointing your finger, generally there are three pointing right back at you. leaving that aside, any damage from this event? >> what is the old saying don't throw rocks in glass houses? i think it is amazing the irony here. i'm hard-pressed to recall a corporate set of ironies like this. options traders are not pricing in a huge move. i looked before coming on air, most of to susan's point, earnings bad news is out there. i'm expecting that to be sort of a contrarian indicator because we'll see metrics apple hasn't shown us before. neil: the one thing i noticed, keith, you follow this more closely, apple is the one stock that hasn't had storming comeback at least in january a lot of other beaten down tech names in december did. i'm including alphabet, google, facebook, some of these others that clawed their way back. microsoft, amazon, not back to old highs than any means, not so
12:53 pm
apple that is sort of stuck in a rut. what happened? >> there are two things at work, neil. number one, apple is one of the most liquided stocks in the world, every financial institution mutual fund has to own it. you have tremendous crosscurrent underlying that. apple is a also a great story stock. you're talking don't forget about company jobs pioneered. traders in the past would line up to take a part of that. now traders line up because they can't afford to miss it. neil: charlie brady our stock editor here, the guy is a genius, right up there with you, scary wicked smart -- >> he is smarter than i am. neil: he is smarter than me, but saying that the options is pricing a 4 1/2% in apple shares tomorrow. do you buy that? >> well, again i think that my read on the situation is, we've seen this playbook before. apple likes to come storming out of the gates as you put it.
12:54 pm
i think that move is contrary can indicator of sorts. if metrics margin comes in like for service. neil: no longer about phone sales. i heard one analyst say, apple can no longer afford to phone it in, i thought was clever. look at microsoft, all about the cloud business and all this other stuff. that is what turned things around at ibm. something similar. i'm wondering whether that is the future for apple. it will telegraph that. if it doesn't, there is still more selling to come. in other words people will be focused on iphone sales, on ipad sales. in other words on the hardware part that is obviously the foundation of the company, but the company wants to be a lot more than that? >> well, don't forget about something you and i talked about several years ago when i endured no harsh criticism for. apple is making pivot into health devices health market.
12:55 pm
tim cook was on record that he thought apple would be reminded about health than iphones. that is significant statement. i my jaw dropped with the public affirmation of that. i think narrative is changing. where the company is going. there will be monster profits on the table not yet priced in. neil: i will say this, newfangled apple watch, card grow gram you can get on that, i am forever checking my heart beat. if i'm interview with you, very, very calm, breaking news happens i can see myself literally panicking on the air. they are on to something. it is hypnotic. i wonder how far they go with that. they definitely want to take a stab in this area. it is very lucrative area. just ask amazon, right? >> of course it is. imagine what happens when your doctor prescribes an apple device. suddenly the 1000-dollar iphone is completely irrelevant. you have insurance paying for it. you have the government paying
12:56 pm
for it. ultimately the consumers pay for it. that doesn't change the fact that apple will bring a huge number to the bottom line when their devices become ubiquitous. neil: thank you very much. my watch is telling me, 10,000 steps, oh, in a day. in a day. i got that wrong. austin, you didn't tell me it was a day. >> good job. neil: what can i do. more after this. so you only pay for what you need. over to you, logo. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪ what would it look like [if we listened more?] could the right voice - the right set of words - bring us all just a little closer, get us to open up, even push us further? it could, if we took the time to listen.

yours. he appeared two thirds of the country, 250 million americans whether meteorologist mark fixes that. what we looking at here? >> well, it is the polar vortex. do you know what that is? >> now, i was hoping you would tell me. >> i would like one of those watches. those that are equal. just for that -- [inaudible] polar vortex is a fancy way for saying it's an arctic mass coming down from hudson bay into the lower 48 and with that, some real cold temperatures, even in places used to the cold like minneapolis and chicago well below the averages that we put in the headlines here.
1:01 pm
widespreading vehicles may refuse to start. i say free so you might want to wrap up the pipes eric in many places staying below zero for days like chicago. maybe hours plus. minneapolis 72 hours of temperatures seen subzero. the colder air coming into your neighborhood, and do. very cold thursday in the city. we just add to the mystery here from chicago, minneapolis. they are dropping 30 to 60 below. these numbers can freeze just a couple minutes time. that is why we tell you to cover up and limit your time outdoors and also don't forget your pets because it's cold for you, it is called for your animals, too. look at your temperatures on when they staying below 04 highs of the whole shaded area. minneapolis, record lows even
1:02 pm
for the twin cities. we've seen 20 to 30 years here. chicago, record low highs, record lows at night. subfreezing into thursday. we are not done. rain and smell up the coast in the arctic express comes in tomorrow. gets windy, gets colder. just for you, there you go. thursday you are going to be shivering. cold coming into the big towns before the end of the week. neil: i think you're enjoying the spirit i can't prove it. >> i'm going to be in the city for the weekend here. going to send super bowl parties. so of course, i will be in the city for the weekend. i will be shivering with you as well. train to the super bowl is in atlanta. you're not in atlanta. you'll be in new york.
1:03 pm
>> i know where the action is. all head to the city. from the midwest, too. we just got to get through a couple cold days. >> end up going to the wrong city. good seeing you, my friend. love your sense of humor. whatever is going on with mother nature, energy prices had been in database. you. you see the natural gas and oil and all of that stuff, but there might be other factors at play that won't allow that to happen as quickly. deirdre bolton here, and market watchers. john trainer. what he looks for now? >> what are the regarding energy? >> if i talk with our clients, and most are happy to see the price at the pump decline. most are seen in energy prices are moving in that direction. we do own energy stocks and those are doing very, very well.
1:04 pm
we think the upside pressure to oil prices will increase this year and we are looking for a good market. tree until you have neil: you have venezuela in the mix in all the instability there in the things we are imposing on the government to get them out of there. what effect will that have? >> that in theory should give some price support because more oil comes out the market. that makes russia happy. where is the sweet spot because when the sale prices cannot we see this is great for the u.s. consumer. but then at some point in your these companies you have a position in. so where's the sweet spot? >> there is the effect when they dramatically at 80 that is fantastic or the saudi's are having a hard time trying to figure out exactly which are talking about. where is that sweet spot? how do they keep u.s. production tamp down and do while themselves.
1:05 pm
we think it's probably closer to 65, 70. that range where we are going to bounce around. >> in terms of oil short term you have some upward pressure because of of venezuela, saudi is continuing to cut production at the fractures are cutting back a little bit. the worldwide economies are slowing, decelerating suing the move is likely to be more short-term and i don't think energy is the key investment variable at this point you will have a trading range and focus on other things like earnings, trade disputes, brags that, government shutdowns. don't think energy will be in the headlines. trade your earnings are in people's minds and have been much better suspected. i think where a quarter way through the process. what do you think? >> you are right. earnings are good. are there forecasting even last 10 b. earnings forecaster really looking for the revenue forecast. what are you seeing in the real
1:06 pm
final demand? we want to see the topline growth or not we're really focusing. neil: many are not so great. >> exactly. the company is her airing towards the growth in our portfolio because they want those companies in there. we are not buying the deep cyclicals because we don't see that demand. >> yeah, and i think 3m was a big signal today, too. they make everything. there is not one industry in the u.s. that doesn't supply some sort of product for and they talked about yourself and also in the context of china, which does back up what we heard from caterpillar, nvidia in january 3rd we heard that from apple and not has really been faltering "after the bell" today. since january, even since october apple is than a little bit shaky on the china out from outlook. neil: are the shutdowns again
1:07 pm
another 2.5 weeks? >> if you look at congress, you say the pragmatists working on the deal and i don't think anybody wants to do that again. i don't know whether he's trying to scare the others. i don't think anybody wants to go through that. neil: he doesn't like when people say u.k. been all about any does something crazy. >> i think it bothers him. the right wing of his face is attacking him and he's in a very difficult position here and he is reframing it. neil: where is this going to go? i always wonder when they get so concerned when he is trying to be pragmatic and be pragmatic and come up with a solution. >> 's most fervent supporters are more interested in principle and pragmatism. as pragmatism. as you said it's a long way between the year in the election and a lot can happen. he's been a difficult position but so are the people likely to oppose him. it will be fascinating --
1:08 pm
neil: i don't know to the degree to which the democrats offer support for a wall. certainly not $106 billion worth, but it could get messy. >> i think you're going to see movement on the democrats part because the major gains nancy pelosi prove to everyone she's tough. you voted for me to be speaker and i'm tough. she's done what she needs to do. they could actually win if they negotiate and say we are the statesmen here. so i think there's pressure on the democrats to make a move. just take a look at the headlines today. the trade conversation, trade talks the president is having and then you've got the political argument. the president has put himself in a much stronger position for negotiating standpoint with china compared to what was going on with the government shutdown. neil: you can also read into can also reason to doubt that he thought he hit a home run in and make a. >> you could. he does need to put this behind him and it would be great for
1:09 pm
three. >> i think this makes for a very awkward conversation. these are two separate issues, but it just don't see how they can be separate issues. the fact that president trump is going to be at that table himself, that underlies to what extent he really want a win, that some form of progress. on march 1st with the chinese, but i feel like something hopefully can come in. trade two of the chinese delegation with the founder to leave. these talks are these talks are going anywhere until that's resolved. >> i would be far more optimistic on being able to reach a deal by march 30th. they really upped the ante here. neil: wasn't by accident. >> you'll see a lot of hard-line rhetoric and posturing on the part of trout. but i think he's in a position
1:10 pm
where something is better than what we have now. it does address some of the issues. keeping the focus on the right wing. intellectual property because the chinese would the chinese would love to see by summer soybean, natural gas and were done. >> the main mentality saving faith is very important. >> he's pretty tough. and i think from some of our sources, they say that is the worry that president trump will want something that is a
1:11 pm
symbolic wing and may actually not that everything that could be gotten. neil: and then you have to worry about whether they stick to any deal they've only broken them. >> and it starts to enforce. even by their laws, a chinese company has to share data and information they get with the communist government. but later country functions. >> i'm saying he's asking them to simply won't work in their system. push them as far as you can without pushing them over the brink in october involved in here. >> the federal reserve will move on rates i guess, that set the stage for the rest of the year. do you think the stage they confirm very unlikely no more hikes this year. >> we are hoping they at least agree to a cause. positive potentially can increase down the road. we would love to see pause that may be an increase at midyear.
1:12 pm
if you thought -- the first quarter is going to be confusing the gdp numbers because of the shutdown. want to get a good first quarter, good second quarter, you could see that says four more times. >> the business is pretty comfortable with where the fed is now and what is going to do is not trying rock the boat that he's got us he wants us. i think is going to get through this conference about changing expectations. neil: that's almost what you get for your money overnight. >> that's true. the economy can handle that with rates where they are without volatility and he's got to stay away from the balance sheet issue for the time being. can be flexible in terms of it. neil: i want to thank you all very much. in the meantime, they have to do something in about 16 days.
1:13 pm
what is the likelihood of that? a comprehensive immigration deal in 16 days. they can decide what to have for lunch in 16 days. but hope springs eternal. more after this. i don't know what's going on. i've done all sorts of research, read earnings reports, looked at chart patterns. i've even built my own historic trading model. and you're still not sure if you want to make the trade? exactly. sounds like a case of analysis paralysis. is there a cure? td ameritrade's trade desk. they can help gut check your strategies and answer all your toughest questions. sounds perfect. see, your stress level was here and i got you down to here, i've done my job. call for a strategy gut check with td ameritrade. ♪

at comcast we're commited to delivering the best experience possible, by being on time everytime. and if we are ever late, we'll give you a automatic twenty dollar credit. my name is antonio and i'm a technician at comcast. we're working to make things simple, easy and awesome. neil: by now you've heard of the bug if you're in group chat you
1:17 pm
can actually spy on their phone calls. i was actually discovered by an arizona teenager who spent more than a week trying to warn apple this is coming from our colleague at dow jones of a bug in the face time video chat that allows this to happen. but airborne in them and calling them and say you might want to pay attention to this and put off until apple discovered it in others were inciting it. it began with a teenager is mom. they weren't. i don't know. a lot of times these companies ignore something coming from their base and saying we've got a problem here. we will follow more on that. that might have more to say on my. the fix later on today when it announces its earnings. meanwhile, richard shelby and shelley moore capito are warning that two weeks might not be enough to get a comprehensive border deal done.
1:18 pm
no deal could mean another potential shutdown. >> i think to have another shutdown, that is the failure of leadership on the congressional level of the president. it is just in my view there is no excuse for not getting this done. my view as you well know is that while government employees are working and not getting paid, i found it ironic that congress who didn't get their job done on time to get appropriation passed on time were getting paid. with members of congress said they don't get appropriations bills done on time. if they don't care about their paychecks, and they ought to care about politics than they do care about that. the national association of manufacturers did a survey and the 206 payday counties. these are counties that voted for the previous two.
1:19 pm
the voters in the swing counties expect dead by 80% their members of congress to work collaboratively with people in the other party ticket aleutians and get legislature passed. only 12% of those voters thought they had to dig in their tails and stick to their partisan positions. so for both parties, republicans and democrats, and if they want to get reelected, they are to listen to the people in the swing districts and they expect action, not partisan recalcitrance. neil: in the meantime to your point, we have a little more than two weeks to cobble together something. there's no way will get a comprehensive immigration deal done. so what is the best they could hope for? the talk you hear his democrats agree to some funding, not the 5.6 billion administration wants. and something to do with daca
1:20 pm
advocates of illegals through no fault of their own are in some sort of limbo. they keep the government lights on. >> then do that. and you know, whoever's supposed to be here for his state of the union address and i think speaker pelosi inadvertently did the president a favor by delaying it. state of the union ought to be upliftment uniting the country. not just about the wall. border security is important and there is a way. judges and technologies.
1:21 pm
what they don't want to see. digging in their heels for partisan advantage. but they want to see our public servants listening to the people. the people want to see a government working for the people. not narrow partisan interests. in fact, if what they see as a circus where all the animals have left and all that's left are the claimant's acting like trained seals, this is not good for the people in either party, said they need to get their act together. neil: you just insulted trained seals, governor. thank you very much. in the meantime, we've upped the
1:22 pm
ante if you will by issuing a travel advisory. go to venezuela as a parent after this.
1:23 pm
1:24 pm
1:25 pm
1:26 pm
neil: as anyone might contemplate such a trip. click berman has the latest from the white house. >> this comes from the state department. the highest level of state department does when you look all across the globe, only nine other countries have a warning like this issued from the state department as essentially not to travel there talking about iraq, iran hemisphere yet from afghanistan, north korea. just to give you a handful. he was part of the warning from the state department. they said the following. do not travel to venezuela.
1:27 pm
inside venezuela. the trump administration as a whole to make sure that money that comes from the u.s. and talking up purchasing venezuelan oil doesn't make it into the hands of nicholas maduro. they continue to allay any concerns that this could potentially have an impact here at home on the oil supply and may be potentially rising prices at the pump. steve mnuchin speaking with maria bartiromo this morning. >> i've spoken to many of the refineries over the last week. i want to make sure there's a lot of oil. so i think on one hand we've been able to cut off venezuelan oil going forward. but we are managing this at the u.s. refineries.
1:28 pm
>> another issue that puts the u.s. on one night and russia on the other. the foreign minister from russia quoted in an article saying what the u.s. decided to do yesterday was illegal. neil: thank you very much. the acting attorney general is very close to saying it is close to being completed. chris christie is telling svm that it is a tron president who could be dragging this out. >> i will tell you that between that bother me are the ones about the investigation. what i said to the president over and over again is there's no way you can make this shorter because there's lots of way you can make it longer. by tweeting the prosecutors, by giving them new fresh material, you are making it longer than it needs to be.
1:29 pm
>> actor's editor-in-chief nick johnson. if the governor is right on that, the president is dragging this out. do you buy that? >> at about the president is fully responsible for dragging it out. you can look at the entire response to the question they might be done wrapping up. it was a clearly definitive statement. he was given a long answer broadly about what was happening. he wasn't putting a lot of emphasis, lot of faith behind that it will wrapped up soon. the one thing we learned about more investigation is that nobody knows anything. and a lot of the reporting we hear from the attorneys involved were kind of chasing loose ends. that kind of speculation doesn't bear out to be true at all. it doesn't seem to me that he was making a definitive statement one way or the other.
1:30 pm
it was a small part of a long statement he was making. neil: it came on the same day we know about the roger stone stuff and that will likely go next year and that raises an issue. could mueller be wrapped up on something this big is going to trial. it actually goes the opposite way that this could drag on may be months if not another gear. >> i think that is certainly one way you can look at it. the indictment arrested someone like roger stone, so close to the president so close to the campaign. is that a sign we are close to the younger another's.we don't know where they will pick up when they search roger stone's home prior to the trial. there could be a lot of other threats picked up. former governor christie said he's the one with a law degree here who knows more than me on this and is entirely correct when they introduce new
1:31 pm
information, and they are certainly entitled in every new threat can extend. neil: what you make of all these folks? chris christie has a book out right now in which he tries to saddle and still have great respect, but does press everyone in the krazy keystone atmosphere coming from the former governor. quicksands, the president believed was a glorified videographer. i don't know what his role was, but before you know it is a tell-all book out. >> were all used to books coming out of administration. we've seen them coming out now. everybody links up to and
1:32 pm
including the president. all of these books that are coming out. all over the white house including a team of paper showing how the lack of loyalty and books that are exposing what these authors see as the flaw in the trump administration. >> at face value, a lot of what it is saying, they all leave. everybody is leaking. >> everybody was computing for that. he interviewed one of the people who leaked to him to get inside the mind of the motivations that are in different language to implicate other people. how they linked to boost their own fortunes. it is in some ways -- [inaudible] trend took the president hears and reads all of this families
1:33 pm
to the atmosphere that make sense to happen all over again. >> i think what we've seen, some of these folks have to eat it today that the circle of people he trusts have grown smaller and mahler. very much sort of his family, ivanka commensurate kushner been a part of that. a lot of other folks around him has gotten a lot taller. mick mulvaney is the act chooses that. the communications are hasn't seen this larger wallace's assessor. we are saying the president sort of clothes around that, which we know it's frustrating very much. neil: good to you again. thank you very much. tradeshow week from today this addresses back on. how does the president used that to advance his push for a wall? maybe by not constantly pounding the wall. after this.
1:34 pm
k there when you can stay home with neulasta onpro? strong chemo can put you at risk of serious infection. in a key study neulasta reduced the risk of infection from 17% to 1%, a 94% decrease. neulasta onpro is designed to deliver neulasta the day after chemo and is used by most patients today. neulasta is for certain cancer patients receiving strong chemotherapy. do not take neulasta if you're allergic to it or neupogen (filgrastim). an incomplete dose could increase infection risk. ruptured spleen, sometimes fatal as well as serious lung problems, allergic reactions, kidney injuries and capillary leak syndrome have occurred. report abdominal or shoulder tip pain, trouble breathing or allergic reactions to your doctor right away. in patients with sickle cell disorders, serious, sometimes fatal crises can occur. the most common side effect is bone and muscle ache.

1:38 pm
neil: are right, the state of the union of back on for next tuesday. i believe a little more than nine days for the democrats and presidents to cobble something together on the border wall to avoid yet another shutdown. former republican governor of indiana, mitch daniels says it's time we be very careful, but when it comes to the state of the union, governor, would you think of that whole pageantry that comes with that? >> i regret to say i don't think much of it, neil. and i regret that because i really believe we need more, not fewer moments and occasions on which people lay down their partisan pitchforks and come together as we do like the
1:39 pm
fourth of july or tomb of the unknowns once a year. reflect on our great good fortune to live in this country and this time and on the things we have in common. unfortunately, the state of the union he can be argued served that sort of humanitarian purpose no longer does. it is a made-for-tv spectacle. it diminishes rather than add to the sense of confidence and common purpose that we need so badly right now. neil: i definitely see where you're coming from. maybe it's the old-fashioned institutionalizing me that likes me another one together in a room, all the branches of government all they are and they might tackle each other and play these ridiculous games and theatrics, but i like seeing them all in a room. what about you? >> i would have liked seeing them in a room. precisely what i liked his people who comment the audience
1:40 pm
knew differed strongly on so many issues to come together, respect to each other, as appropriate, reserved their criticisms or maybe commentary afterward. rush is not what we see these days. lots of theatrics, disrespect sometimes when the president to someone in the audience. sometimes back to the president. i'm just afraid that it fosters cynicism rather than citizenship i'm a traditionalist, too. i want to go back to the tradition that dates from the beginning of the republic until woodrow wilson, who began the process of turning it into more of a stage show. neil: i remember covering the administration. it is interesting about what people say to you because it comes in the middle of a frantic rush to get some sort of detail

1:54 pm
remember he is the guy we put our chits behind here, to kick out nicolas maduro we feel is acting like a dictator and shouldn't be running the country. the reason why we slapped $7 billion of sanctions and money freezes on the state-run oil company. all that no doubt coming up tonight as trish regan sits down one-on-one with the man of the hour, probably the most scrutinized leader on earth, right now, 8:00 p.m. eastern time that is appointment viewing. meanwhile kamala harris is promising to eliminate private health insurance care if elected in favor of medicaid for all. what do you think of this? >> i think it is great senator harris makes health care one of her top priorities during her campaign. it's a complicated complex, multibillion-dollar issue but i'm concerned that her plan will disrupt health care and health

insurance plans for 150 million americans. as a doctor i have worked and volunteered internationally. i have seen first-hand that this does not work. the biggest issues i've seen long wait times, patients wait months for tests and treatment. on top of that there is shortage of doctors overseas and in our country so it will not work. i have seen it first-hand. we are a country whose economic growth and success thrives on capitalism and competitive markets. that is why we're the most powerful country in the world and we need to stick with what we have for now. neil: the argument it would force down prices, medicare would be a big provider, big buyer of all these stuff. generally if the government is in the market to do presumably what capitalism can't it generally fails. so i know where you're coming
1:56 pm
from. it is to address skyrocketing insurance costs for many people many whom opt out of the market all together. what do you say? >> instead the focus should be on attacking medicaid, medicare fraud, tort reform, reducing or eliminating co-pays, reducing deductibles. as a doctor, every time when i go to work, i go to clinic, one. biggest issues i face almost daily are patients struggling with their co-pays, struggling with their deductibles. if i want to order a test, sometimes patients can't do it, pay 2, $300 test, sometimes going to the emergency room sometimes which is much more expensive. we know first-hand it doesn't work in the united states. take a look at the va. that is just a prime example that you know, the type of medicine, it is not functional. they just pass the mission act because of the lack of access to health care which allows veterans, our dear veterans to go outside of the va to seek help. so, and on top of that, even in

2:00 pm
bacon. enough. look at the time, doctor. we have no time. i want to thank you, very, very much. all wise words. we should hear them. i just don't like to hear them. my buddy charles payne. he is fine with it. he is healthy and all of that. charles, i don't like this discipline nonsense. charles: neither do i. you had an amazing show. i learned about the polar vortex and blue moons. for some reason i feel like they come together. neil: i don't know how but they do. charles: thanks a lot, neil. neil: all right. charles: good afternoon, everyone, i'm charles payne. this is "making money." coming up stocks are edging higher. they're showing a little resolve. get this, on average, regardless of companies that beat or missed estimate this is earnings season they traded higher. is this because they're oversold or maybe foreshadowing something even bigger? it is howard schultz versus the quote, un-american democrats. the former starbucks ceo slamming aoc's proposal, calling it un-american. kamala hs
