budget agreement organized by patty murray and paul ryan, we have a threat of to more government shutdowns over the next two years. the expectation is they will get the 60 votes they need today at 10:00 in the morning. there could be more drama here than people realize. yesterdayp-flopping when republican said they would vote and then pulled back. 60 votes is the threshold test. to expectation is they want get home for the holidays so we will see those 60 votes. >> is our senate becoming more like our house? >> with the changes in the senate rules, that is the argument republicans have made. we are not there yet. it will still be the saucer that cools. the animosity right now between republicans and democrats over these rule changes and the possibility that if republicans took over, they could up the ante is out there. if you see the filibuster go away, it will be a different place. these techout

different teases and how can you rake it down and what is valuable in their. i think that makes sense. it's hard to see what strategy is as a standalone company. >> you wonder how many earnings reports they will have. mean losses reports. it's all rigged. >> we will have a single best chart that compares blackberry to another company. >> a mystery company? >> that is coming up later. >> facebook is about to sell video ads. it will sell the spots this week and they will play automatically regardless of whether users click on them. thebook is trying to grab $66 billion that advertisers will be spending on u.s. advertising and an official announcement could come today. nasdaqjudge rules that has to face investor claims over its handling of the companies ipo.

public. amc is not one of the biggest ipo's but one of the more interesting ones. >> amc was bought in 2012 so that is a quick turnaround for $2.6 billion. they raised more than $350 million. it is supposed to price after the close of trading today. robberydy owns a conglomerate, hotels in china and other types of commercial properties and residential properties. he is also working on building a big movie studio city. kind of a hollywood in china. this guy is interested in entertainment and interested in u.s. entered tenement in particular. he is now bringing this company public. >> all of hollywood is gearing money toward the chinese audience. not a lot of people realize this
is a company owned by a chinese conglomerate and the chinese billionaire. there are many other chinese owned companies that we kind of tend to forget. >> exactly, not as many as you might think. the acquisitions were done with some fanfare. lenovo is one that comes to mind, buying the vc business from ibm. it is all branded lenovo. for three years after, they were still branded ibm and then they had this they of celebration where they peeled off the ibm stickers and put on the lenovo acquisitions. the smithfield acquisition is much more profile and more recent. >> sausages was a national risk. >> they somehow made it through. >> the idea that julie talks about of the chinese coming in.
we worry about computers and gasoline, is there a melding of this relationship with chinese business? >> there has to be at some point. it's an important market and in entertainment especially. the way american movies are made is essentially to appeal to overseas audience. s. it drives the creative process so it is important that those products are being consumed. if it's owned by the chinese, that continues -- that encourages cooperation. chinese audiences like bittersweet endings where there is a lot of drama and tragedy in the end. talk about the other china-u.s. deal. becausee has not been of the obstacles between the u.s. and china, historically -- the smithfield deal might be a turning point was close in september after getting congressional scrutiny for the
flow of pork between the u.s. and china. this is the 10 year look at yield flow between the u.s. and china. there have been about 700 deals and they were pretty sizable when you look at them altogether. these are the terminated deals, and oil andal, gas was an area of concern when it came to regulators and congress looking at that particular deal. it's a question of what kind of deals you will get going forward. a movie chain seems relatively innocuous. >> they are not going after lockheed martin, thank you so much. >> we have more to discuss. 78% is the percentage of nfl players that declare bankruptcy within five years of retiring from the nfl. we will discuss the business behind injured football players coming up on "surveillance."

in that industry. until now. in the past year, 60% of new hires at tech companies have been women. does that matter? we have the cofounder of women 2.0 and she joins us now. it is an interesting transition. we are told that it is almost impossible to develop computer games for little girls but when you get to the computer things that big girls use, that adults use, it is primarily women. this seems to be a tectonic shift. right, the totally number when users on social networks are women. i like to think that technology is growing up. we are seeing tech infiltrate things like education and finance. that allows for other types of profiles to enter because it's not just about building software. funding is in education
led by a woman. is a business? coming up on >> >> yes, we say software is eating the world. are the women not being hired as programmers but more as sales and administrative? >> you cannot make that generalization. some of the people at the top of these companies are still engineers. it is a mix of talents. is it just that time is marching on and we have the idea of more women coming out of top programs? i think of marissa myers. is one, i think that piece. it's also about the diversification of tech. andn come out of education they think they can make a tech
company. been easier for women to move into management roles in technology than other industries? startups arel, aristocratic. you have to have a good idea. if you have that together, there is a new dearth of investors. i can rattle off a number of investors that showed 20% of their founders are female. are not a thought leader but you actually do something. confabs go to all the and everyone hangs out, they are all tasteful in black -- what is the thing for next year for women in technology? >> it is just for them to have an opportunity to enter. >> they get in the door and prove themselves like everyone

thought leaders. it's true. you have a family shift, how do you fold that into what you see with women 2.0. ? >> women are setting the culture the way they want to do it. flexiblelves being where they need to go off and have a child. >> that has happened and industries across america as women have moved in. it happens for software and internet businesses in general, does it matter that women are in charge now? how will it change that? >> it's important because of
what about a gender neutral tech segment like the cloud? are we seeing more women there? >> we have not seen so much happening there just yet but women are leveraging their strength and realizing they are good at certain products of they can address their own audience. there is a way of niche businesses that could succeed. >> you come out of western ontario business school. forbig is it to be in stem women within technology? >> it is huge. you don't have to be the engineer but if you can talk the talk and be able to direct an engineer to make things happen, that is the most important thing. >> stay with us. >> coming up next, what does

but she will be governing with them. whenever angela merkel governs with another coalition, that coalition partner loses. the spd could have less strength after the election in four years. the ministries she has had to give up on this grand coalition are a bit of a poisoned chalice. it is anentry check -- energy change. she has given the defense ministry to one of her allies. she will have the first female defense minister in germany. whata merkel always gets she wants and it seems like her -- arets are less happy just happy to be in her shadow. >> what will she do with this majority? nothings talk about moving forward in europe until after she up got elected.
is this election going to galvanize her in a different direction? the finance minister will remain and he will continue to make the nationalist case within germany that you cannot have this european wind down of a single banking resolution. wants to flip a switch and save the bank but they are saying they want more safeguards and those safeguards are still in place. >> thank you so much. this is our single best chart. >> we know how blackberry is a shadow of its former self. reminiscent of another blast from the past, black foster. -- black -- blockbuster. blackberry is in yellow. they chart a similar path.

they warned that apple is eating the market share and the founders of black area said apel don't want to use a browser on their phone. they said it will kill the batteries to quickly. they just care about security and their work e-mail. they were in denial for so long. by the time the companies said we will make this a consumer device, it was too late. the market had already gone past them. >> the ceo and cofounder of women 2.0 you have seen this company grow up. none of the cofounders, the big leaders of blackberry are women. would women have made a difference? when you have a diverse founding team, you have a 50% higher chance of roi. you are more capital efficient. whether it is gender or not, diversity is important for all companies. >> the bs factor of women is
different than the bs factor of men? >> i did not say that. >> in a meeting, women have to every day for many different reasons. what kind of meter do they have? a little different than men. it as ake to think of masculine/feminine thing. we all hold masculine and feminine traits buried in technology it's about defining something from scratch. having a collaborative leadership style versus a dictatorship is super important. women are good at being collaborative. >> which woman is ready to manage microsoft? they do the panels with you. which one is ready to step in and microsoft? >> that's a good question. microsoft has a lot of work to do and there is culture that needs to change. they need to have someone at the top to think about culture the way google has. -- footer thinks

march. as for hard to get the pe ratio right here at our current guess is what matters for that ratio is what could cause volatility. i think the biggest risk is they taper and then we get a soft patch in the u.s. economy next april or may and then suddenly you're saying where is the liquidity. there, but iks out am focused on why with the earnings estimates collapse right now. my view is until i get more cost and place it is going to be hard. >> that disconnect the between corporate health -- >> you know that old advertisement about trail and blather? >> i remember. >> you get can straight spending

entrepreneurs don't think it is a good ring and about half will take tough actions. reduce jobs, not our people or reduce hours. what is interesting about this survey is the scars of the last financial recession are still very fresh, very fresh attitude keywords it came out of the survey are that businesses for entrepreneurs. out at all like the large sector, increasingly cautious and conservative about risk- taking. >> what does that say? what is there to do list on health-care? >> i think they need to communicate better. >> it is so misunderstood, tom. entrepreneurs in particular making decisions about their are not investing are hiring because in many cases misunderstanding. thatthink that the step

additional strength in the economy? mike, the strong economy kills a lot of ills. that is the shame right now. and autious conservatism much lower risk-taking by entrepreneurs is causing them not to hire. >> people will hire if they have the business. there is pent-up economic energy. the more certainty we get out of washington and if aca can be better communicated and understood, particularly by those entrepreneurs that it doesn't even impact. it will be a catalyst for growth. they really important survey. look for that on their website. >> the hartford leading the way in trying to determine how small businesses feel the effects of the aca. >> to that point, michael. how long is still rolling out? >> well into 2014.

meeting? >> that is not a done deal. yellen. be janet if she's confirmed this week and then bernanke leaves, otherwise ben bernanke is still in charge. this be market moving tomorrow? >> at think people are worried about that. the markets have done a lot and active management is doing better. worried that the relative performance and gains could be over. markets going to act irrationally to anything? >> or has been this pavlovian response. i think if you think about what tapering means, it is a good thing. our call is it is really hard for good economic news to be bad for markets and he were near as long as the bad economic news was good. i don't see the reaction to any tapering being a sustained negative down trade if it is really about the economy getting
better. >> should restart now or wait until january or march? >> a think the sooner they do it the better. i don't think they want to keep -- i think they should slowly unwind it and communicate clearly that it is not tightening. >> what did you learn in the bond debacle of july and august? >> one thing i learned was that the currencies and rates of some of the emerging markets, the fragile five that morgan stanley calls them, the demand is stronger than it would've been without the qe. that is a big risk. one of the risk is if we taper, do you start seeing your movements? >> that is what we're seeing with indonesia. >> i think indonesia is really front and center. i have to get smart on that. >> you do have some economic

>> when you look at financials and how they're managing their cost structures, that is going to be a concern into 2014. which segment of the sector do you like? >> it is the fourth but we are really tearing it off. we like capital market sensitive banks, we like asset managers heard we like capital markets. we are more cautious on regional banks. a lot of the regional banks do better when the front end of the interest rate comes up not just -- i don't think they can -- tightening is different from ta tapering. >> your call for the s&p 500 and exactly the> is not
