11:03 am
>> they could try to clarify for investors their plans for slowing qe. former fed vice chair says the policy stalemate could make clear that the fed has no plans for reducing qe. it could also emphasized that any start a reduction of bond purchases remains dependent on the labor markets. the statement could also point to slowing inflation which provides ammunition for the fed to continue qe and low interest rates. questions about whether bernanke will actually be around to see this through, it sounds like president obama does not think
11:04 am

11:11 am
>> they did say something to this effect. he said they may have been able to track one of the 9/11 hijackers if they had this program before 9/11. that is if i heard it correctly. that tells you something. who knows where we would be today in our history if they would have been able to do that. connell: supporters of the nsa leaker say he has been able to prompt or develop this discussion that we are having now about civil liberties, about what should be public. what affect do you think that these leaks have had? >> a terrible effect. they cost a lot to put together. they cost a lot to maintain.

12:08 pm
happen here is you actually have to stop the hackers and stop the threats at the application level. you have to fortify and harden the application with technology like ourselves here. you can see a demo on the website which will articulate to you how easy it is to get into the app or any app that's a mobile device based app. dennis: a yes or no answer, do you use smart phone banking apps on your smart phone, and would you? >> not yet. i am waiting for, i think, the industry to come up to speed and adopt the technologyings we're talking about. >> thank you very much for being with us today, mike dagger. >> thank you. cheryl: switching gears to another story we follow for you today. the fed's bond buying program with a positive impact on housing. new home construction for may rebounds today up nearly 7% from the month of april, led largely

12:11 pm
supply in forever in apartments in hotels, and wear houses and retail so real estate's back, the demand's there, and the interesting thing is while interest rates are growing that could chill the market, if they go up because the fed decides to taper or reverse course it's because the economy is strong, and when that's strong, it's great to rent. >> you say it's strong, and that's an alternative investment, kind of out of the will house a bit, but we keep asking the question here where a is all the cash going? it might be pointing to commercial real estate here. >> definitely, and it's important -- interestingly enough, it's not just the big cities anymore. it's across america. >> the strip mall's going to come back? >> going to come back, senior housing complex comes back, and -- it's not just apartments. the small suburban office building. >> and hotels as well. >> and the forecasts for the rest of the year. cheryl: revenue per room. >> 5.9% for this year, 6.2% next

point gain, but volatility's back, big swings are back, and all those people concerned about when we broke 15,000, the traders said, you know, buy on the dips, thought the uptrend and technicals pointed to the upside so what i'm looking at, also names lead the way, pfizer and verizon doing well this month. looking month to date, this month of date, pfizer, verizon, dow jones clocking in another winning month; right? since december of last year, every single month has been a winning month, and right now, not tracking the street, not yet. back to you. cheryl: repeat the fact we did not sell in may. we did not go away. nicole, thank you very much. dennis: cutting back on promiscuous bond buying and easy money. reports that fed chairman, ben bernanke, and the fed may be ready to ease up on bond buying, and peter barnes has more.
12:19 pm
>> promiscuous bond buying? well, dennis, fed watchers don't expect any change in policy out of this two-day meeting that ends tomorrow, but the press conference is tomorrow, and they do see this as an opportunity by ben bernanke to clarify or walk backkthe comments from a month ago about possible easing of fed bond purchases being less promiscuous and slowing quantitative easing. >> there's a solid majority to keep their policies in place at least until september, if not longer, but they are talking about when to stop or when to taper, when to slow down, and that's natural, but talking doesn't mean doing. i think that's where the market's ahead of itself. >> and we'll get a policy stttement from the fomc saying
12:20 pm
that is the opportunity for the committee to clarify its policy plans, for example, former fed vice chairman don cone says the statement tomorrow could reenforce the pace of reductions in bond purchases could -- would be gradual, be data dependent, and could be reversed if the economy had any kind of reversal. it could -- the statement could reenforce policy decisions about bond purchases are separate, everybody, those are separate decisions, and finally, the statement could clarify the fed strategy for selling off the 2.5 trillion in bonds it has promiscuously bought in quantitative easing. whether or not ben bernanke is going to stick around to do this, well, didn't sound like president obama thinks so. >> i think ben bernanke's done an outstanding job. he's a little bit like muller, head of the fbi, where he stayed
12:21 pm
longer than he wanted or supposed to. >> as for successors for chairman ben bernanke, janet is the front runner of analysts and other names, speculate for fun, roger ferguson, former vice chairman of the fed now running tia, germany stein, harvard economist who joinedded the fed last year, and what the heck, throw in tim geithner, president obama's former treasury secretary and former president of the new york fed. dennis, cheryl, back to you. dennis: quite a beauty pageant. thank you very much, peter barnes. >> okay, guys. cheryl: ben bernanke uses terms like "escape velocity" with the bond buying program. he's using the language. anyway, i tell ya. playing defense, increasing foreign demand of military equipment benefiting defense stocks. breaking it down coming up.

12:49 pm
guys. the markets, though, in the last week or two are scared about ben bernanke and feds pulling back. what happened to the fear? why up another 120 on top of yield's gain? >> well, because the market is expecting the fed to stamp out bond buying program or raise it a little from what i'm hearing from clients and other chatter op the floor is that the fact of the matter is that the u.s. economy is a ot softer, and we've not gotten to the escape velocity talked about a couple years ago, and when you also factor in that the unemployment rate has not hit the level of 6.5%, not any time soon, i doubt, seriously, that they'll pull back or make noises about pulling back. ben bernanke had extremist in il moment on may 23rd when the s&p had a high on my 22, floated the trial balloon about pulling back, but since then, the data is soft. i don't see any changes coming from the policy statement tomorrow. i could be wrong. i think that's what we gauge on now. dennis: if the fed increases from here, the markets don't

know what to do with the fear. thank you for being with us, keith bliss. >> my pleasure. cheryl: metals move lower. listen to the trading pits at the cme, and phil flynn, what is going -- what's begin here with gold and copper here in particular? >> gold, you know, they are going down because no one is playing. the cpi is weak, putting downward pressure on the market and as well as the fed may be taperinn back, two reasons to get out of gold. i think copper goes beyond that, not only do we have to worry about the fed, but worry about supply, have to worry about demand in china. there is a story today, there's a big compromise that was down since may, maybe coming back online. that is is going to be huge because if you're going to bring on more supply at a time when demand is weak, that's putting pressure on copper, and that's why we have a low today. back to you. cheryl: phil, thank you. >> thank you. dennis: is netflix getting too big? the stock popped up 15 bucks
