3:02 pm
in the pits of the c me. michael is monitoring the moves in oil. let's get started. with all that regulation, bankers hated it. a lot of americans didn't understand it. was it an expensive waste of time? paul invoker is calling for an overhaul of financial regulation. (?) the current structure is inadequate and splintered. what kind of new reforms is he proposing? peter barnes in d.c. with the latest. peter: he's trying to fix a piece of legislation that dodd-frank barely touched. he wants to reorganize agencies starting with a huge new financial regulator. post the financial crisis, regulation of banks is riddled with gaps. invasion opportunities. while transactions and risk have shifted to the

less regulated shadow banking system. >> the structure of the regulatory system, a system that was built up piecemeal. it never had a good -- had an overall look. nobody has done anything to make it more consistent and effective. >> so his remedy is to consolidate banking regulation of the fed, the occ, the fdicc, cfc, into a new were you dential supervisor authority. (?) the fed would still do financial rule making along with setting monetary policy. then he would merge what's left with the fcc and cfc into a single agency. he acknowledges his proposals are a long shot. noting that 25 official reform proposals post world war ii went virtually nowhere because of lobbying by
3:04 pm
stakeholders against change. lori. lori: peter barnes, thank you so much. markets getting a boost today. positive earnings and china. but will it be enough to erase friday's sharp decline? let's get to the floor show. traders at the new york stock exchange, the cme group and the imex. scott redler. what a difference a trading day makes. >> a lot of traders brought down a lot of risk on friday based on what happened in asia. then you come in to a huge gap up. we're trying to participate. we're trying to get involved. we want traction. this time, can we hold higher and finally break out? as we go through earning seasons. we're beating those low expectations. getting more sectors involved. we might be able to get this 2105. versus this range of 2015 which is driving traders nutty.
3:05 pm
lori: what's the message in this volatility driving us nutty? >> it's probably the dollar. you know, we overshot. we all built in these earnings that will be very bad the first quarter because of the us dollar. and if you take a look at the companies that are reporting, right now about 3% aren't making it, when we're normally 15% don't make their numbers. it's different. we've gone too far. so the markets come back. however, i warn everybody, this is a market up and then a market down. you saw what happened friday. nothing changed that much in the world to drive you back up to these heights today. so it's a market looking for direction at these levels. lori: and michael, at the imex, how does 56-dollar a barrel figure into the outlook? >> more and more volatility going forward. summer driving season coming. we'll have the same thing. what's changed in a day or two? we're 10% higher. oil last week, over $51.
3:06 pm
looking for new highs. we had a 2-dollar range on a quiet day. the ranges will get a little bit more wild. i think the market is looking to stay a little stronger along with the stock market. lori: what would be the catalyst? we have 146 s&p companies reporting earnings. what are you keeping your eye on that will influence the direction of this market? >> i want to see more earnings come in above the lowered expectations. ibm hasn't a good solid quarter in a while. if they come out after the close and it goes up, that may lift the indices. facebook is key for momentum. i'd love to see them have low expenses to get that to new highs. we're seeing new traction. mike had a great call on oil. everyone was a crowded short. he said it would go higher. here we are 10% higher. >> that's nice.
3:07 pm
thank you for participating in our floor show this monday afternoon. well, back to politics. hillary clinton hitting the campaign trail in new hampshire. she's at a live event where she's trying to appeal to small businesses. will a new book overshadow this trip? this book is accusing hillary for pay for play while she was secretary of state. to fox business' blake burman now from washington. blake. blake: hi, there, lori. this book is called "clinton cash" the untold story of how governments helped make bill and hillary rich. the new york times says it alleges that certain donors were giving to the clinton foundation they were rewarded with favorable us policy decisions. the book claimed this happened during hillary clinton's tenure as secretary of state. one example cited was the columbiaian --
3:08 pm
according to the article, a clinton campaign spokesperson called it absurd conspiracy theories. the white house press secretary josh earnest faced several questions about this a while ago. earnest was asked if he could assure that donors didn't receive preferential treatment? josh: the president is proud of the work that clinton did as secretary of state. for these specific accusations that are presented without any evidence, i'd refer you to the political types that are more well versed in those types of things. blake: earnest said there was a memorandum to uphold standards. hillary campaigns in new hampshire. she held a roundtable discussion at a small business in keene. they tell fox that clinton is not planning on addressing the allegations about that book today. lori.
3:09 pm
lori: it's interesting. right? so many of the republican candidates have been grilled. right? but so far with hillary, we had the big outburst about chipotle, then the scooby van she's driving in. do you think this is kind of the turning point with this clinton cashbook coming out. finally the media will drill down on her or try to. >> there were 20 republican contenders in new hampshire that have thrown their name in the ring. they had to answer about policy positions. hillary clinton once again sitting down at a roundtable and talking to a handful of selected people. as we mentioned, she won't be talking about this book at least as it stands today. >> selected people. very interesting. we're just about 50 minutes away or so from the closing bell. why target's piece sunday leaves millions of shoppers red in the

(?) is the comcast timewarner deal making headway or is this a last-ditch effort? they will be meeting this wednesday with justice officials hoping to keep their merger afloat.
3:15 pm
here more with this story is adam shapiro. adam: the 45 billion-dollar merger hangs in the balance when those representatives meet with officials with the justice department on wednesday. the combined company would control 30% of the country's paid tv market and 20% of the broadband internet market. staffers in the justice department told them that the merger is anticompetitive. comcast will attempt to convince the regulators that the merger is necessary to compete against apple tv. the merger will bring substantial benefit to consumers without any harm. comcast agreed to concessions from regulators in 200 2011 when it acquired nbc universal. >> jack is joining us. he is going to discuss the fate of comcast and timewarner cable merger. jack, welcome to you.
3:16 pm
do you think it will happen, at the end of the day? jack: i don't think so, to be honest with you. i think it's a real stretch for timewarner and comcast to say this won't harm competition long term. i think it will. lori: do you think that will be the issue as they meet with officials? the monopoly factor? jack: i think so. remember, not too long ago, at&t tried to buy t-mobile. plenty of different industry. wireless rather than in the cable tv business. but similar issue, sprint and t-mobile were trying to get together. that didn't run by the government either. what's troubling to me here is that comcast is right, that the tv side of things probably won't -- probably wouldn't hurt competition that much. they're losing share anyway. all tv companies are
3:17 pm
losing on the tv side. hulu, apple tv and the rest. what's troubling is they would control 57% of the broadband going into our homes. cable tv modems that everyone relies on. that's a huge percentage. what's to prevent them from raising prices? there isn't a lot of competition in that space. large cities are probably -- it's not so true. most places in the country, there's one provider. you have no choice, but to go with them. lori: maybe that's why comcast and timewarner haven't had a meeting in quite some time according to reports? jack: you know, it's hard to say. i'm not sure they're on the same page all the time, to be honest. and then there's also, you know, charters in the background saying that if comcast doesn't get timewarner. they'll go after timewarner. that's another interesting one. but i think this is really -- this is a troubled merger. i'd be surprised if it
3:18 pm
actually takes place. >> jack, this is adam shapiro. i have a quick question for you on this. you mentioned other potential purchasers. would it be a content provider who needs distribution along the pipeline in the future? i mean, this is a hypothetical, for instance, news corporation, 21st century fox. it wanted the content side. >> it could be. if you look at the distribution, there are two things that are in play here. number one is the basic infrastructure. forget about the tv side for a moment. but everyone requires internet connectivity into their home. that's really the pipe that makes everything work. on top of that, then you can layer either tv. multiple channels, by the way. most channels that most of us probably never watch that get bundled. or go with a netflix or hulu or amazon. even if they don't
3:19 pm
produce content today, they're moving in that direction. it could be that a content provider would want to have that infrastructure in place perhaps to give them advantage over some of the competition. it's -- it certainly could happen. adam: and my only other question, would there be a regulatory hurdle for a 21st century fox to go that route with timewarner cable. comcast has it. but would timewarner have that problem? >> that's an interesting question. my guess is that the justice and fcc would look at it differently because they're not direct competitors. there is some competitive issue there, monopolististic issues perhaps. net neutrality types of issues. but i think that probably would get approved. lori: all right, gentlemen. thank you so much. jack gold and my colleague adam shapiro. adam: good to see you. lori: espn is saying not so fast to verizon. the sports juggernaut is
3:20 pm
rejecting their plan to break up cable and offer more choice in constructing panels. espn and espn2 are not part of the core packages. sources close to espn tells the associated press that verizon may have released details about the new offering before contractual details were fully hammered out. there's shares of verizon. up 42 cents. a full%. eight tenths of a percent. we're now 40 or so minutes from the closing bell. (?) we've heard from the media analysts. what are the bankers saying about comcast's deal to buy timewarner? charlie gasparino has exclusive info on the banker's view of this deal. can it go through? why is one former coca-cola executive buying into the jerky business? he made a fortune when he left coke to work on a start-up called

entertainment. they're off more than 16.5%. the company asked the judge for more time for a reorganization plan. to present a plan to get out of its $18 billion in debt. back to the comcast timewarner merger madness. wall street bankers are questioning if comcast has the stomach to battle it out with the doj. here's charlie with the exclusive details. charlie: i want to be clear here. i'm getting it from bankers who cover the telecast space. they know people that are working on this deal, but they're not working directly on the deal. here's the interesting thing, comcast will try to save this. we know that. they'll try to -- they want to buy timewarner cable. a lot is riding on that. agreements with verse various other content providers. not to mention all the deals that are contingent on the doj giving a go on this.
3:27 pm
they're trying to save it. the concessions are likely to be such a high hurdle, that the obama administration, you know, does not like transformative deals that they -- they are not going to like just agree to anything. that there's a feeling inside comcast that they actually have more work to do internally, that they have to deal with the nbc u situation. get that straightened. it's a mess right now. a lot of things to be fixed. let's face it, comcast has some of the worst customer service. notoriously bad. they know that. they have those two issues to deal with. a lot of talk inside comcast at least according to these bankers. depending on the level of concessions that the obama doj wants. antitrust people want. they're willing to walk away from this. this is something that they know they have other fish to fry in a company. and, by the way,, you
3:28 pm
know, two years from now, they'll do better no matter what. they'll either have hillary clinton or a republican a much more friendly administration. that's it thinking on wall street in terms of transformatial mergers. when this thing started coming out, i thought it was a dance. i tweeted out a lot. i talked to some people, particularly inside in the cable industry, they said, they'll give a little. this is justice department doing what they do best. squeeze a few more concessions. the feeling on wall street is much more pessimistic among bankers. the obama administration does not like these deals and they'll be asking for so much. for example, i read this in the journal, i find this almost unbelievable that comcast would agree to this. net neutrality on comcast. what does that mean? as this thing is in limbo in the courts, net neutrality is not the law. can you imagine one company being forced to
3:29 pm
adopt net neutrality rules basically saying everyone has equal access. it would put them at a major disadvantage. lori: how closely is everyone watching every hurdle? we have a meeting. charlie: huge. lori: what could be accomplished? charlie: listen, i think we'll find out. listen, it depends on the level of concessions they really want. they may ask for so much. that's the feeling on wall street that they'll ask for so much that comcast will walk away on this. that's the general feeling. this is an administration that is not friendly -- listen, there's been a bunch of them they scuttled. they said no to nasdaq going after two stock exchanges. why we need two is beyond me. it's not worth it. i'm telling you, stay tuned. the real reason why other than this deal is

3:52 pm
provided to the rebel houthis by iran. and iran, i know, is one of your most interesting frontier investment picks. so let's begin there. what do you see in terms of investment potential in iran? >> i think in iran, we have a country that has a population the size of germany. has the world's second largest oil reserves. it has excellent demographics. that is, it has a lot of young people. iran has suffered from amazing underinvestment for years. i was there last year. you go around iran, there's not a single international chain hotel. no class a office space in the entire capitol or the entire country. there's an enormous need for infrastructure investment. once iran -- once sanctions are lifted from iran, there will be a wave of investment. and i think iran is incredibly well-positioned to make --
3:53 pm
lori: it's risky though. the nuclear deal, it won't even be -- even if it is complete until june. what if we ultimately do not lift sanctions in iran? and you mentioned the oil interests there. i mean, the middle east, it goes without saying, is a hotbed of uncertainty. who will be the leader? which one? saudi arabia? iran? the israel component of it as well. very risky in my view. >> lori, you don't put the rent money in frontier markets like iran and other markets. lori: okay. yeah. >> but if you're looking for a market to diversify and looking for something that is situation-specific. and you're in a world where commodity prices are falling. you want something with situation-specific drivers. in iran. if sanctions are lifted, i think you'll see, as i mentioned, a wave of investment. i think that one way to invest in iran, because obviously us investors can't invest directly in the tehran stock

exchange. few international companies have operations in iran. there is a company, a french car maker called poojo, an adr. when you're in tehran, you see about half the cars on the road are that brand. lori: i know you have frontier picks in argentina and mongolia. how do you get access to these markets? what's the advice here? >> these markets -- a lot of these markets have adrs. with argentina, there's a lot of political uncertainty. later on this year, there will be a presidential election. whatever happens, the next president will be a lot better. there's a lot of low-hanging fruit in argentina. a lot of fairly easy policies that can be implemented to improve things significantly. lori: i have to go. i want to see what kind of return you can expect. >> if you'll invest in these markets, two or three times your market
