>> you said that before on "squawk" the other day >> the yield curve continues to steepen. federal reserve is telling you not so much that they are not going to cut again but they will not raise for many years to come we got leave it. thanks so much thanks for watching the prom the xchange begins right now thank you. welcome, everybody here's what's ahead. from industrials to tech to financial stores hitting all time highs what got us here, what pushed us even further and is there still value out there. under armour having its worst day in two years there's a revenue cut and weak sales hit the stock. a look ahead of what's in it for the company. retail sector worst enemy may be the calendar we begin with today'srecord breaking rally >> a lot of positivity out there. there's a reason why you're seeing a lot of green on the
1:01 pm
screen i'm putting stars next to all of these. the dow jones gets one, the s&p gets one and the nasdaq gets one. they all hit record highs. specifically with the dow we're off our session highs. we're up 54. see if that sticks technology and industrials those both showed some signs of life and those become the big ones we want focus on today because they were at record high levels take a look what's happening overall with the s&p let's show you what's happening with energy stocks they are surging today energy far and away the best performing sector. higher oil prices along with higher natural oil prices because of a deepening freeze that could take hold in the next couple of weeks. chef von shares up cimarex energy up and sl
1:02 pm
schlumberger also. >> the record breaking rally is where we begin today we got all thiems not just in the indices its but across a wide range of sectors. investors are calling for a recession is quieting down the fed and earnings that weren't as bad as feared let's bring in manage director of private expect. welcome to you both. what's notable about today as well as on friday we're seeing these sectors that are these value sectors that have not been loved, financials, energy, materials and they are picking up >> i think that we came into this week sustained by last week it's sort of everything has come out reiterated a very bullish stance so the last number of months has felt like there are two ways to interpret all of the data you're getting and some people are interpreting it to the upside
1:03 pm
and positive consumer and bottoming story and other people pointing to global gdp slowing, et cetera. i think what happened on friday with the jobs numbers and what has continued to happen today with the earnings numbers is the interpretation really playing into the bullish story we've had more today what has come out on trade at least we've had some commentary regarding autos and europe and japan and so it is all helping bolster the fed and earnings position which is a consumer driven economy, continues to be and everybody is feeling good >> the fed last week and what is notable there could be an argument to be made we're in a goldilocks environment if you do believe the economic data is looking better, if you do believe that trade is, you know, at least the fears are abating at this point and the fed -- it's going to take a lot for them to raise again, then we're in a pretty good place >> seems like the base pace is
1:04 pm
good the fed has talked about the base economic profile looking solid, strong, things like that. mr. powell and friends have been concerned about cross currents trade looks better it's a very tough thing to handicap that can change in one tweet but it seems the progression is better and better. that's a plus. brexit as far as being a u.s. risk is off the table for a few months you put those two together with better data pretty good recipe for the fed. >> also for if first time we're seeing some selling in the bond market we hadn't seen that in terms of the risk on move in stocks you saw stocks go higher we saw a bid in bonds. today the tlt is down by a percent. where do we stands now >> people are taking risk down it's interesting at the same time you see yields going up and volatility has gone down it's a pretty decent barometer fears aren't as intense. it's dropped with respect to
1:05 pm
volatility we think it's a measure that hey the trade situation looks better brexit we talked about that. hong kong. take a couple of other global risks. seems the range of bat outcomes is narrower. in addition to that if you think about return of sector bisector, phenomenal year. in the bond market, whether in treasuries or corporates, those things have done very well why should many investors take a lot of risk right now? they shouldn't yields are going up. >> what should we buy especially when the trade situation can turn on the dime, on a tweet and it can certainly change december 15th >> yeah. absolutely i think part of the market reaction in this sort of indiscriminate move high is that the best case scenario is probably priced in to the market and any sort of downturn or deii
1:06 pm
t -- that's worked well in october and this quarter and this year. but stay with consumer staples, consumer discretionary parts of tech that you feel comfortable with financials is interesting. telepho telegraphing from fed has helped even today i feel clients that have a lot of money on the sidelines and there has been this sense of not wanting to put money into the market. the there hasn't been a lot of activity i think people are starting to feel like going for a little bit of yield, making some very specific investments, makes sense because there is as you said whether you call it goldilocks -- we've gone from half empty to half filled people steam be very excited about what the next two traditionally strong months have to bring. >> thank you
1:07 pm
from all time highs to one of the worst performers today that's under armour. shares are on pace for their worst day in two years down 68% from their all time highs and this comes after the company said the sec and doj are probing its accounting practices. it also cut full year revenue guidance sales in north america were down 4% last quarter. for more let's bring in the senior research analyst for susquehanna analyst group and our retail reporter lauren thomas sam, i'll kick it off with you does this -- you've already been at a sell rating i gather this doesn't materially chang your outlook for the company. >> no, it doesn't. sort of a little bit a surprising new information, but nothing fundamentally has changed either despite the fact that they beat their numbers by a little bit they lowered the fourth quarter and we just don't see any room, anyway they can drive the upside
1:08 pm
growth built into their, the top line growth built into their five year plan >> lauren when i read the news, i like many other people who read the news thought is this why kevin plank stepped down should we make a connection. >> totally today listening to their conference call post earnings, kevin plank came out and said, reiterating what he said when they announced the transition or the ceo transition that, you know, this was my decision this has been in the works for quite some time. but i think you're totally accurate to kind of wonder if there is this connection that can be drawn there's still a lot of thing up in the air right now he some of the things that we want to know and that investors want to know is when did the board find out about this. and, you know, for how long will this probe, i guess, continue. obviously there has been a huge reaction sell off in the stock as of friday the stock was up 20% inquiry to date. i think today it's hardly
1:09 pm
holding on to 1% gain for 2019 so there has been this sell off and reaction to the probe and itself and we had this earnings report come out this morning where they cut their outlook for 2019 their sales outlook >> sam, as an investor should i trust this company this has been going on for two years and they didn't find a need or an occasion to disclose this why is this coming out now and not two years ago or a year ago or earlier >> well you bring up a very good question that's one thing we were wondering. we were also wondering what the management meant by, you know, in answer to a question on the call, we're prohibited from discussing it. who is prohibiting them and why? but no you certainly bring up a good point we want to know why we're finding out about it now and not a while ago. transparency is always a good thing. in this case i think that's why the stock on top of the lower revenue guidance, that's why the stock is down.
1:10 pm
>> this is an interesting stock in that, you know, it's one of these -- it's competing against nike and adidas but this company has had they cfos between 2016 and 2017 hasn't had the most stellar track record in beating the street yet it's under this accounting probe. so can you connect any of these things with what's going on today? can you go back and say you know what if i take a look at all of this i'm piecing together a company with a truck accounting past >> what i can tell you is that i think that underlying everything that goes on with under armour is that kevin plank believes firm lly under armour is a grow company and wants to get back there quickly. and, you know, i think that was built in sort of what he talked about on the call regarding his
1:11 pm
new position as executive chairman and so look, this certainly doesn't -- it doesn't smell good but i don't want the to just come up with reasons what could be there's lots of things that could be and hopefully we'll find out soon what they are >> lauren, sam is already ready to sell. in reaction to this specific news what is the street's reaction >> i think it's still mixed. when the earnings report came out this morning they beat on both the top and bottom line maybe a few bright spots were the fact they've been working on inventory, cut down virngs down more than 20% this quarter and apparel revenues were up slightly 1% but also some huge cause. footwear sales were down 12% when you compare that to any key, footwear revenues were up 11%.
1:12 pm
under armour was down 1% so mixed, you know, reaction a few bright spots but they did beat on the top and bottom line. looking to the future and especially with this probe still a lot of uncertainty >> one thing the question really is, can they take share and they think of their product as performance driven and i don't think they realize that performance and fashion and function work well together and i think that's why they don't lose share to their competitor >> taking share with spectre of a probe isn't much easier. we'll leave it thank you both we should note that under armour has a statement to cnbc the company began responding in july 2017 to request for documents and former relating primarily to its accounting practices and related
1:13 pm
disclosures. here's what else is ahead on "the exchange. >> bombing up, biotech posted its best month since january out performing all the major averages we'll take a look at whether that continue and what you should be buying >> plus 28,000 flight attendants sending boeing a letter outlining their big concerns why they may refuse to walk on the plane. and here comes uber. the company set to report results after the bell can they right the ship? this is "the exchange" on cnbc i didn't know what was happening... so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong... but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid.
1:14 pm
the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid.

1:16 pm
biotech is seeing its best month since january. up 8%. biogen, veritex and amgen up in double digits. can biotech continue its big run? i would love to go through some of these big movers. do you stick with these numbers going through the move number. starting with veritex the excitement is their triple combo cystic fibrosis drug >> good question vertex is one of our large cap
1:17 pm
ideas. the stock broke out above 200. 2020 is one of the biggest years for that stock because of that cystic fibrosis drug which was approved five months early set to be an $8, $9, $10 billion drug >> they have three other drugs is it going cannibalize those sales >> a portion of those sales are cannibalized this new drug replaces those old drugs. the new opportunity, 40% more cystic fibrosis patients they can treat. above and beyond what's going to be cannibalized. >> let's move on to biogen they had two binary surprises this year when it comes to the same alzheimer's drug. for investors be prepared for another binary outcome in the year 2020 when the fda gets the application. >> yeah.
1:18 pm
so we're more cautious on the biogen that's been pretty much a roller coaster. had a major announcement that the alzheimer's drug failed. six months later they announced wait a second no, we think it works. we'll file the drug to fda and that got everybody back into the stock. our view is that data is very murky, it is very mixed, and really it's going to come down to a political decision, in our opinion as to whether the fda feels political pressure to approve that drug. there should be an fda decision later in 2020. we're advising people to be more cautious on biogen >> is it one of these fda hearings and decisions where families are lobbying the fda. we have love ones hurting. please fast track this drug. >> we absolutely think there will be and one of the interesting read throughs as to whether the fda, of course, knew and knows that's probably going to happen and whether they open
1:19 pm
themselves up to any political or public pressure to aproift. if they didn't and -- we're not going to approve the drug why bother accepting the application. the fact they will accept the application and review it, they know there will be a lot of political pressure >> we have to leave amgen for now. it's up 11%. great speaking with you. thank you for your time. coming up leon cooperman's war of words with elizabeth warren and it took a very emotional turn why he says the wealth tax is a bankrupt concept plus they fly for a living but association of national flight' tannedants 28,000 members refuse to get on a plane that is not safe she will join us next. don't miss an exclusive interview with david calhoun on "squawk box" at 7:30 a.m

1:32 pm
some analysts are saying nerves vou -- investors shouldn't be too concerned. david fairhurst is leaving today. no comment on why. >> from spring to summer where we kept talking about record highs that mcdonald's kept hitting. then in the past few month, record crash it's been on a steady decline. the big thing about mcdonald's was a momentum story about the changes they are make but they are not the only like fast food or restaurant kind of chain that has been falling off is that consumer theme playing out a little bit or at least rolling over a tad bit that's the key question for investors. it was a winning trade for such a long time. chipotle still is. >> i think, of course, so many layers to this story of course for investors but we're all talking about the idea of the these consensual
1:33 pm
relationships that work and i guess you have to follow the letter of the company policy if this was the company's policy and he violated it and ceo -- >> you're the ceo everyone reports to you even if it's a consensual relationship it doesn't violate the policy >> the ceo will not have any relationship with any employee >> a lot of these n nonfrateniization have clauses it's a broader topic they were moved to take action even though it was a consensual relationship >> the going gets rougher for retail mastercard holiday season forecast south it's stoet grow 3.1% compared to last year's 5.1% this is the shortest holiday calendar with six fewer days
1:34 pm
the sales started before halloween. >> exactly i do think that's funny the calendar is something a lot of executives and companies are focused on and i think they will try to get the messaging out to courtrooms so we don't p procrastinate. he's hoping it will even out the season mastercard's forecast is interesting. 3.1% is not nothing especially if we're talking about an economy that slowing but propped up by the consumer not as bullish as some of the other forecasts but out a lot later. you're closer to the season. does that mean you're more accurate and can sort of factor in other macro economic data perhaps. 3.1% is not nothing. that's a decent holiday. >> what's interesting when it comes to certain type of consumer in which power the
1:35 pm
holiday season, it comes down to whether or not there's a certain spectrum of spin they feel the market at record highs they want to feel more i'll bank it now and not spend or i'm more cautious because i think it's due for a bit of a pull back. those things are weighing on the scentsments picture. president trump is talk about how you're going to go out there and spend the money you made it comes down to whether or not folks believe this is the time they should be spending the money for this holiday shopping season >> we're all deal shoppers >> we're all deal shoppers >> you got to do it all year round, guys. all year round >> then have your gift closet going. the other thing i would point is almost all of them had these big caveats, well this is our forecast but honestly anything can happen there's a lot of uncertainty
1:36 pm
turn now to a passionate leon cooperman talking about what he calls vilification of billionaires and the proposals of bernie sanders and elizabeth warren won't worker. >> the wealth tax is a bankrupt concept. it's a nightmare the for 50 years we've been promised, you know, simplification by the irs. this would be a nightmare. a nightmare. every year you calculate your net worth and give 2% of your net worth to the government. it's ridiculous. gold would surge because people would find gold as a place to hide their wealth. it's the wrong idea. >> later in the interview cooperman tears up because he cares so deeply. will this win everyone on wall street over? >> so leon cooperman -- first of all i respect leon cooperman he's a lightning rod
1:37 pm
but he didn't grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth. he's self--made. had a fantastic career and got wealthy. i don't fault him for his success. he's interjected himself into a very contentious debate in america about whether it's okay to have a wealth gap between the richest of americans and least well off of americans and what he's done -- i don't believe -- you don't get to a spot like leon cooperman without having a thick skin but i'm not sure his skin is thick enough to endure criticisms and vilification he's gotten because he's weighed into that discussion. >> i don't know for the debate is that there should or should not be this wealth divide. it's,000 solve that wealth divide >> he's targeting specific policies and one person in particular and that's elizabeth warren and that's the lightning rod that got him burned. >> she will say she made him cry
1:38 pm
on cnbc. she will seize on that even if that's not where he was going. he says he believes in paying more for tax but this isn't it to what dom is saying -- >> he doesn't believe the government should be giving away his money. he should be giving away his money. >> i think most people, those have a lot of money in this country do believe that there's something that could be fixed. we haven't come up with the perfect solution there's a lot of assumptions to be made in that wealth tax that elizabeth warren is putting forward. >> let's talk about airbnb the company is banning party houses after a deadly shooting in california at a halloween party at an airbnb company it will have manual screenings
1:39 pm
of high-risk reservations. and remove users who violate this new policy. if this sounds almost impossible to enforce -- >> because it is >> because the property owner said that the woman said she was having a dozen people in a family reunion family reunions can get big. this is a huge party very tragic situation. it seems impossible to actually crack down how you can confirm how many people will show up. any houses, it could be a party house. >> what it does is raises the triage scrutiny, right that airbnb might face in these neighborhoods where houses are rented out who wants the possibility of a party house especially when the company can't enforce away party houses >> i know someone who has a house and has several homes for rent in the nashville area if the tenants don't disclose what they are holding there.
1:40 pm
he did shut it down because neighbors complained too much. he didn't want to upset the neighborhood seems hard to enforce. airbnb is trying to do something. i'll give them credit for coming out and do it. >> i grew up in california fairly higher class neighborhood higher class town. upper middle class what it does do is put all these municipalities on notice. we have to be proactive on monitoring airbnb. we better put regs out there >> what kind of discount valuation should airbnb get when it goes public because of this that's the question for all these unicorns which many have turned into donkeys. >> horse without horns >> exactly now this is something we can all

during the week so every week could be a -- i could get behind this i would have no problem working like 50, 60 hours a week if it meant i could have an extra day off. i have a problem because the paradigm won't be changed easily employers got so used to five days >> not everybody does it how do you get -- >> it could be a selling point >> and a lot of, i think more offices are thinking about flex time you can work from home on fridays. they love it because they don't have to go into the office on friday >> you move to four days a week and people go back to surfing the web and doing their online christmas shopping and all those things that eat up a lot of time >> management, we don't do that. >> never no no as i shut down my browser. thanks manufacturing slowing down across the country with the
