automatically go to recount. lauren: that's not all in governor's race in florida democrat andrew gillum's campaign is ready for possible recount. gillum did concede sort of to republican ron desantis tuesday night but since then race has tightened and we are looking at what's going on in arizona, another race too close to call, democrat there kristin sinema grabbing lead over more that he mcsally in senate race for the first time since election, up more than 400,000 ballots still need to be counted in arizona. cheryl: live report on that and analysts will be reacting to that story, also this morning president trump is going to be traveling to france, he's going to join world leaders to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the world war i this weekend. lauren: in washington top u.s. and chinese officials are holding security talks as the two nations remain locked in a

cuts but despite the slowdown at least 3 more rate hikes are expected in 2019 and the fed also did not mention the stock market volatility. cheryl: speaking of stocks, though, disney did not disappoint on earnings that came after the bell yesterday. lauren: tracee carrasco joins us with more on that and other headlines making news this friday morning, how is disney doing, tracee. tracee: better than expected earnings thanks in part to big movies like this. >> follow my lead. >> she seems more intense. tracee: ant man with the wasp boosted disney to best fiscal year in its history, results got a big boost by raising prices at theme parks, disney reported revenue rose $14.3 billion, shares of disney shot up 2% in after hours trading, meanwhile

set to rally? >> well, they could if they can find some support and it's important to take out the previous high, of course, from a technical standpoint, however, we have to remember that the fed raising interest rates is actually putting a lot of pressure on the debt system and we have record amounts of debt everywhere in the system and the more they raise rates incrementally it's harder to service the debt, as long as the credit market stays strong, yes, stocks will continue to market, if credit problems will cause problems and that can put pressure on stocks, we will have to wait and see how slowly they do this and how big of an effect that they have. lauren: what do you make of almost record amount of s&p 500 buybacks, stock buyback that is we have seen this year? >> well, it's interesting, that's what happened in 2007 before the market high but i think companies are basically incentivizing shareholders to hold on to the stock despite
heighten volatile. lauren: instead of investing in companies and employees? >> right, basically when they buy back stocks they are giving shareholders larger percentage of holdings, incentivize to hold on to the stocks that are being bought back if they sell other stocks when you have a heightened volatility situation. lauren: i want to talk about oil, there seems to be a shift in psychology that's affecting the market, it's now a bear market, it was what, october 3rd, 4-year high for oil prices going to 80 and now drop below 60, what's going on with the price of oil? >> oil is a bellwether for inflation and deflation in my opinion basically, oil going down is not a good sign and the fed should be paying attention to oil going down it means weaning demand and means slowing economy in addition to seeing how rate hikes affect the market, i think that oil has to be paid to, actually a deflationary sign meaning that the fed hiking rates and
reducing balance sheet is taking larger effect than maybe they're anticipating. lauren: you sound pessimistic here, francis. [laughter] >> every time the fed has hiked rates in the history of hundreds of years of markets they've sold off traditionally so that's just sort of what happens when you reduce the money supply, the stock market is liquidity meter and it tends to -- tends to come along with that. lauren: thank you very much. >> thank you. cheryl: we are seeing a little bit of pressure on friday morning, again, you had a big boost for marks earlier this week up to midterms, dow is down 82 in premarket, s&p is down 11 and a half, nasdaq down 41 and a half. well, coming up, investigators are still searching for a motive in yesterday's mass shooting at borderline bar&grill, live in thousand oaks with first look at possible clues. and nancy pelosi is not backing down from her bid to become
