3:02 pm
earlier this week the index known for at the small and medium high growth stock was in danger of falling into correction territory. look at this three month picture, shutting 9.3%. since its recent high hit in march to read the come back to starting today for the moment to read it all could change, of course, because we have seen a lot of volatility. here's where we stand, dow jones industrial up 32, but we were down 44 points earlier. we have mixed economic news, existing home sales rose less than expected. 1.3% last month. you may look at that and save less than expected is not a good thing, but this number is up for the second time in nine months, so take it. the conference sports index of leading economic indicators is another piece of data we got carried it also fell short's third in the upper jobless claims more americans for the week
3:03 pm
signed up for jobless benefits last week and it was more than expected, so initial claims rose about 28000 to 326,000, but when you stretch it out over the four-week and get the bumps and bruises out it is still on relatively solid footing. i asked marriott international ceo if he is hiring and here's what he said. >> we are hiring and we are growing. we are having a grand opening next week at the new marriott marquis, the thousand room hotel that just opened about two weeks ago and that's 602 jobs and that one hotel a long. liz: not new hotel in washington dc, but will things change for the hotel and airline industry if congress gets its way on passing your loyalty and frequent flyer points? don't miss my interview coming up at 4:00 p.m. eastern on after the bell and plus he just met with the president today pushing
3:04 pm
for more international tourist to come to this country to spend a lot each time to come to read less guitars top stories. the slow death perhaps of an american i country do you remember these pictures? we showed them to you in october when they were taken by a analyst for capless advisors in the picture showed sears store shelves were in disarray with its financial not very far behind trade today the retailer announced its plans to close an additional 80 locations as a way to restore profit ability. this blow, so many of them coming after a company reported the first quarter losses were whiter than expected and sales fell 7%. the retailer is now in its seventh year of terrible numbers. as we look at shares of sears they are moving higher
3:05 pm
by three and a 3%, that's no small chunk of change. perhaps it's because real investors believe once you sell off a bunch of properties it just becomes assets jury to give us more context to this story we sent job lock to an building for a reason trade give us a deeper story of where you are in why you are there. reporter: one of the most iconic sears buildings if you look behind me maybe you see, before there was this huge sears tower there were sears towers on most every stores heard this was built in the 1920s on the southside of chicago and that iconic pop-- power characterize a lot of this year's buildings around the country. this is in the day when sears was essentially the amazon of its day. it sent that catalog out and that had essentially the access to internet commerce of its day and then there were stand-alone stores and this is one of the three oldest stand-alone stores that remain for sears and this was shuttered about a year ago. look at the good and the bad and the ugly of sears earnings today. good, i would say same-store sales up two tenths of a percent and that's a positive and then shop your
3:06 pm
weight to the loyalty program has gotten traction. but, the bad side revenue, down 7% essentially and margins declining on discounting of apparel down to 23.2% for the quarter and then the ugly is the loss you mentioned. over $400 million, 379 a share and when a building closes in a sears store closes and it's in a neighborhood like this it's called avalon park and by the way it's about 15 blocks from president obama's house down the street that we. when it closes in a neighborhood like this the neighborhood suffers. sears was this great icon and to be the irony of the whole thing is that they were amazon back in the day. it was a mail-order operation people wanted things delivered. sears just doesn't seem to be able to make it happen at this point. liz: my mom in canada remembers tracing her foot on a piece of paper in an outline when she was a child and sending it to sears to fit her for shoes in it
3:07 pm
really is so sad, but then anchor comes up for people looking at eddie lambert, who is a supersmart guy, but years now of what is a categorical disaster and now he has some retail outfit or real estate outfit where he is clearly trying to just shut off all the real estate, but now these stores are in areas where no one was to be in anymore. reporter: i hate to say it, but this neighborhood is not one that is particularly attractive. it's a south side largely disadvantaged neighborhood. there's good working class people that live here, but not a favorable real estate area, so it's a tough strategy. liz: in the. we wanted that perspective that only you can give. jeff locke live from one of the oldest sears stores ever bill, shuttered now, for good. as we approach memorial day weekend is just getting lighter and lighter like a feather new york stock exchange volume running 17% below the average.
3:08 pm
meanwhile, stocks are flirting with near record highs, so how does that work? the s&p 500 today came within one and a half points of record territory jury take a look at the volatility index. there's no fear here. it's hovering at its lowest level in 14 months at 11.8. we have near record highs on light volume and no fear. is this really a recipe for a long lasting rally? i know your answer is, there's not a lot of meat behind this potato. >> i agree with you 100%. the s&p is closing at new highs but they're only about 10% of the s&p issues that are in new 52 week highs and if you look at the percentage of stock you'll have about half of the stocks versus about a month or two ago when you had almost 85%, so fewer and fewer stocks hitting new highs and that is a concern. you have a wall of warrior
3:09 pm
with regards to decelerating earnings growth and economic growth and geopolitical concerns and you have to balance that. so, it's an interesting market, but fewer and fewer stocks are participating. that's not good news. the trends are intact. things like home builders today are very promising strong move to find their highs. russell is starting to make headway against the s&p. it's been in a downtrend for almost three months and now you start to see strength and small caps yet again, so the least we can see about, but it's tough to see a lot of longevity given so few stocks are hitting high. liz: you mention the home builders and the derivative plays are looking good also. home depot, lowes are higher so i think you're right and anyone-- any of us who have been participating or watching this market for years knows that the four days before memorial day weekend you will not see a
3:10 pm
lot of action, so let's get to treasuries. up 2.56% yield on the 10 year is a very interesting considering we were at 2.51, 2.5 to just a day or two ago. >> i'm starting to watch interest rates rate there i think-- i put an offer it in a house today because i'm looking at this i think it's an sustainable. i think treasuries will start to-- the yields will start to rise. i think the stock market is going to come up to read we see these quick jerk reactions with s&p falls one to 2% and you were bringing up the volatility index earlier. i think that's a bargain down 14% on the year. it's something you put in your portfolio and stick in your back pocket. we have geopolitical attention you the possibility of rising interest rates and economic data has been hit and miss. we saw weaker industrial production and also retail sales, so i think longer terms and volatility, i think it's going to pick up. liz: you should stay and watch our stuff-- show trade
3:11 pm
i hope you get the opera in your because we have redfin where you can buy online and it's an interesting business model. stay tuned. as we head into what is considered to be the summer driving season not as much movement as i would expect on the energy complex. >> true, but we are above one to 50. you couldn't pick a better week for big draws in crude oil down right now. this could be the catalyst of a real expensive writing season. retail-- wholesale gas about $3 for the first time in weeks. so, let's see what the weeks turned out ahead trade. liz: everyone have a safe weekend if we don't see you tomorrow. closing bell ringing in about 49 minutes. looking for a good deal on something, but want to make sure it's not good-- too good to be true? this is an online site. it's been around since 1999, but it has new energy where the users actually decide what constitutes a great

price and its way above that now at $20.83, up about nine and two thirds percent, but earlier it was well above 11%. is the ipo of this an indication of how successful alibaba will be later this summer? investors can expect a flurry of additional chinese companies to list here. during kent on the floor of the nasdaq with more and jd and we ignore the fact that the nasdaq navigable of these big names. jo ling: no doubt about. it started trading at about 11:00 a.m. eastern and he saw that as you mentioned. right now, we are looking in doing pretty well up around nine, 10% but what is interesting about this stock is that jd is that-- china's largest online direct sales retailer and when i asked the ceo of jd , the biggest revenue generator.
3:18 pm
i asked him about what this means for stocks down the road and he was bullish and said this will bode well for alibaba, but there's a lot of questions surrounding the company. unlike alibaba it is not profitable now, but he pulled in nearly $1 billion in a bonus based off of eight share -based stock and you look at the numbers and it's astonishing. he also has an 84% control of a voting despite the fact the company is public. when i asked his calling about this and what this means were investors this is what he had to say. >> the ipo of the private investors have been supportive of our strategy and supportive of the founder of the comfy. i think for fast growth company like jd its import to have the founder to be in control and the quick strategic decisions and long-term focus for the company. jo ling: i also asked him
3:19 pm
how he feels about the chinese economy now, obviously consumers are being hit hard with the housing crisis in gdp, but he said he's confident and that the middle class will continue to grow and will continue to do well. liz: this is reminiscent of 1999. i find it fascinating, though. i'm glad they are listing here. very interesting for us to get the business. thank you. begin of 1999, this next company was founded that year. think of it as the reddit for shopping. slick deals is the largest online community, 95% of the deals they offer are actually generated by a super hyper loyal user base. it's a bit of a problem, most people have never heard of it slick deals, but that's about to change. joining us now in a foxbusiness exclusive it joshua myers, slick deals
3:20 pm
ceo. why don't people know about this like they do fatwallet some the other names? >> first of all it's great to be here. slick deal has never done marketing. so, the people that know about it, 8 million strong, with 8 million users in over a million downloads of our app, those folks know it. i tend to get one of two reactions from people when i talk about slick deals. either i love slick deals or i'd never heard it, so we are starting to do more marketing and try to get it out there so we can expand the possibility and get people to know it. liz: let's show people how it works and in doing so let's also say when i started doing this i would basically get the best price for whatever you want to. when an ipad and then you get to choose all that's out there. how is this different and show us how it's different? >> with slick deals it's unique because it's done by crowd sourcing and its crowd generated content. of their users-- users bow on the deal and then the very best deals rise to the top, so if you look you can see these are the deals. every single day the great
3:21 pm
things is that we will service the best deals on the internet. so, if you look today we will show a dell laptop for $250 and i was noticing earlier a great deal on a flatscreen television, a 60-inch samsung plasma tv for $680, which is less than anywhere else. liz: and it's new and good. >> it's new and if that sears. it has a fire icon next to it which means it's gone on fire. liz: so, people are checking the site every day and saying i found this dealer that. do you find it to weed through and make sure the deals are legitimate? >> yes, our deal experts look at everything before goes out. liz: good trade we just showed one on a much lesser scale. you can cycle through some of him that we saw, but that's the dollars plus free shipping and then that chrome book that is refurbished and you can see
3:22 pm
this is just about $100 after $20 in rebates. that's interesting and then you get a men's watch and another watch, so it runs the gamut, correct? what are the hottest items right now? >> today i actually saw an itn's gift card, $50 selling for 40 at stable. you would never think to go to staples to look for that item and today you can buy a gift card for $40 worth $50. liz: how do you make money? >> on advertising as well as commissions from the items that sell to the website, so we refer people to sears or macy's or amazon or ebay and we make a small amount commission, but we drove almost a billion dollars in sales last year for a merchant . at certain points where people didn't like where you could at least-- certain
3:23 pm
retailers to mike when you can walk in and price, but here you help them make sales. tell us about the help of the consumer and what you can tell from a website because a lot of people art sure right now if the consumer is healthy enough to open the wallet? >> i think the great thing about slick deals is it's about saving consumer money to read as i mentioned, we have saved consumers last year about over $300 million and can immediately since the come was founded we estimate we saved over $2 billion, so in an environment where people try to save money i think that slick deals plays in perfectly. liz: a dyson for $230, i decided to read thank you so much and good luck. >> you are welcome. liz: check it out, slick josh myers is the ceo. you could go public what are these states. >> we will see. liz: closing bell ringing and 37 minutes. breaking exclusive news, new york attorney gearing up to take action against-- well,

the investigation is heating up and up where people inside the office and people most of this investigation are telling the fox business network they are eyeing possible enforcement action as early as this summer. that the put a quick turnaround. liz: was the charge? charlie: it will be a fraud charge, but let me clean. they are looking at the combination of high-frequency trading firms, how they work through those private marketplaces and whether they have private arrangements in those pools to give certain high-frequency trading firms an unfair advantage over others. that is what they're looking at. i can't tell you if it's a criminal charge, it will probably be a civil charge. they don't know yet. they don't know if these firms will settle. they may just file an enforcement action, but that has not been determined yet. clearly they are on track and from what i understand it based on the evidence they have obtained for
3:30 pm
summer enforcement action to read the high-frequency trading firm run by benny viola the former head of the new york mercantile exchange had an indefinite delay in his plan of the ipo which was supposed be ending out. i think if he gets to the summer there's a good chance with these enforcement actions and it doesn't involve him i can tell you because it doesn't that's when you may see him pull the trigger on this ipo. that's what we know now. they are under investigations, so it's not just the firm's. i will say this about eric snyderman if he goes after the dark pools in a good way, in a way that basically shines light on them and eliminates some of them he will do a great service to the securities market because these pools, the fact that there are so many, you know what you have a problem is. liz: they have the potential of unwinding the market.

3:38 pm
and you can see it's a bit over how to the upside it's 60548, we lost some of our gains. s&p is better by five, but it's the russell that people are watching out. it's got a good gain after having come extremely close to correction territory. correction, by the way, is off 10% from recent highs. russell had been down earlier by about 9.3% this week from recent highs. right now adding 1%, so a bit of wiggle room between the ugly and decent. the stock market has been so volatile. our next guest is going in one direction and that's it. is up nearly 30% over the past year. far outpacing the s&p, so get out your notebooks because he's got stock picks and here with me now is don hodges, founder and chairman of portfolio manager. it was your two recent pics, the last time you were here -- it was actually that recent. it stunned us as we look in
3:39 pm
the review mirror and saw both were up 50 and 60%. i thought that was amazing. one of them was matador which were picking again, but the other was delta airlines. how do you know to pick those names and realize that's not just some a fluke? >> the airline industry as investment vehicle was probably the worst the last 25 years that you can be. airlines were going broke right and left and there were about five survivors and they had a perfect picture in front of them of what not to do. so, you had to think they finally learned their lesson. they have pricing power. they are cutting back on flights. the price of fuel was relatively cheap in comparison and i thought it's just-- they are under owned, so it's time for the airlines to do well. liz: and you were right. 54% gain, but then matador, for example, which by the way you are picking again.
3:40 pm
>> it is a great little oil producer. great management, very cost-conscious and they are in the good areas where the wealth they hit-- liz: up 60%, i believe. efficiency up 60%, so what we have here is a large, which is delta, which is delta in a small which is matador and therefore you have the multi- fund, which as we mentioned is outperforming the s and p500 , how do you go about-- was the process of picking winners that you have developed of years? >> simple, we just eat companies, that's it. we don't pay attention to what the fed is doing or what interest rates are doing or what's going on in spain or greece or europe. we just look at companies and that's our passion and if you look at enough companies you will find good investments. liz: are there certain things you pick out and say it's got to have this if i'm
3:41 pm
going to add it to this? >> we favor companies that trade at low price earnings multiples that are showing good revenue growth, good profit increases and barriers to entry. liz: i need to interrupt you, but it appears by accident i i don't know why hewlett-packard has released its numbers early. the market never likes surprises and we are getting details, but you can see hewlett-packard a dow component has began to drop precipitously. right now it's losing about one half, that's not rather precipitately i over substrate come again, mark. 27.3billion on revenue versus 27.41, which was the expectation, so slight miss for the revenue. we will get more and hewlett-packard in a moment, but we will keep that up as you continue to say what you look for in a stock. >> long price earnings, rising revenues, increasing profit ability, high
3:42 pm
barriers to entry and generally perhaps something that has been out of favor for a while and has been oversold and under owned and when those kinds of stocks turn they turn with a vengeance generally and it's-- liz: that works perfectly with your whole airline and you have a new airline for those of you who missed the delta airlines move you also like united continental. united at a disappointing quarter recently. they had tremendous cancellations in the first quarter, but i think it has more to gain going forward than maybe even delta does. so, i think united could have a substantial move from this area. liz: what are the other sectors you really like right now? >> we like oil drilling, homework and pain, we like the homebuilders--

liz: really? even though the market has looked-- we had the ceo of redfin which is one of those websites that help people buy and it's extremely popular now. it seems like people are in the browsing mode and assumed they might be in the buying mode. >> from the standpoint of providing housing for the new entrance in the home buying we are underperforming now. the day will come that we will have to build more homes for the first time homebuyers. liz: are you worried that we has thin volume and a lot of moves close to record high today, the record high for the s&p would be 1897, we are just about two points away from that. >> i'm concerned not overly concerned, but i am concerned about the volatility in the market --
