9:01 pm
presents under the tree we explained that we begin as always to the most important things investors ought to be thinking about right now, stocks the as politicians wrangled in washington but investors were focused on earnings netflix shares had an all-time high even as technology stocks suffered an electric vehicle stocks outperformed the mid market turbulence from positive news reporting tesla. on the "barron's roundtable" ben levisohn, carleton english in dachau. a crazy week in washington we saw a dangerous game of debt ceiling chicken and democrat trying to snatch infrastructure defeat, using investors were looking at something completely different. >> that is right even friday rally stocks had a terrible week politics did not have much to do with the earnings have been driving this market higher, estimates are coming down in companies cut their guidance because of supply chain issues and inflation sherman williams, bed bath & beyond and allegiant were a few that did this past week the lower estimates could mean companies have an easier
9:02 pm
time with their forecast when it comes time to report, so many stocks have been beaten up, means a bar may be lower. >> that's not how it works analyst lewitt until they can clear it. that's a good the bond market, yields creeping up has to worry investors a bit. >> without a doubt the tenure broke 1.5% that caused the growth stock and nasdaq to selloff. the fed is ready to taper bond buying and higher bond yield seemed like the proper reaction to that but as long as they don't rise too quickly the stock market should be okay. jack: we have to do a gut check, all my gosh ponder over, the tenure is over 1.5% is crazy, what are you watching this coming week. >> is really not much working at pepsi earnings earlier in the week and payrolls on friday but there's a lot of dead air in between the vacuum could spell trouble. jack: they will have the payroll report, let's talk about netflix
9:03 pm
it seems to me if you did not subscribe during a global pandemic you will never sign up and that should hurt growth, the stock has been on a tear while other stocks are stumbling, what is going on. >> neck clicks was the one stock you wanted to be in in september about 7% a lot of announcements that they had recently, i don't know if you're familiar with the movie that came out, korean language survival story, huge views on that right now also netflix revealed word box a few years ago that 300 million used in the first 28 days, if that were a box office, that would've been about 1.3 billion and revenue, a few phones that came out were able to meet that mark a lot of people are watching and you have to think about what is going on with the movie and television business, streaming is much more common over the last year viewers have certainly
9:04 pm
gotten used to streaming versus going to the theater and i think we'll see the hybrid so some of those people who may not have signed on to netflix may be forced to soon. jack: any other tricks up their sleeves? >> i don't know if you remember a few years ago netflix said not only are they competing with cable boxes and other streamers but one of their biggest competitors was fortnite video games. they just announced in the position of the company night school studio, that is going to help and as long as netflix can find ways to stay relevant with the television shows in the movies and video games anything that is on the screens that attract viewer eyeballs i think that puts them into position. jack: i talked to bill and he thinks one of the levers they gonna pull is a cracked and a password sharing a lot of people do it, they know you're doing it and they could cut that off at
9:05 pm
any time. let's switch over to another world, the auto world, new auto and old auto had very good news. >> i don't know what's more impressive omega campus or a giga factory like tesla $11.4 billion to build a mega- campus in tennessee, two factories in kentucky, that is the biggest investment in the 118 year history and in tennessee is going to build out new electric f150 pickup trucks and the battery in kentucky batteries for ford and lincoln, this is all about electric vehicles ford says 40 to 50% of the global volume with electric vehicles by 2030, the stock is up 60% versus 10%, ford is nine times earning utica grow earnings by double digit percentages, no one cares at all about electric vehicle headlines at this point, i'll just add anyone who thinks electric
9:06 pm
vehicle uptake isn't something to see in the u.s. versus what's happened in europe keep in mind americans by pickup trucks and suvs we haven't seen a lot of electric ones yet ford is coming out with the f150 electric pickup truck in the spring, i don't care if it's in a mega- campus or a jumbo jamboree i think they gonna sell a lot of vehicles. >> i think it's neat the renewable vehicles are going to call countries in kentucky because they need the jobs there. coming up our next guest will explain how the cia can prevent the next pandemic, doctor scott godley doing this. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪

9:10 pm
us joining as fda commissioner and the new york times bestseller uncontrolled spread why covid-19 crushed us and how we can defeat the next pandemic doctor scott godley, thank you for joining us. there is obviously communications missteps throughout the pandemic, what needs to happen to make sure the people of this country gets accurate consistent information. >> the advice from the cdc on whether we should stand 6 feet apart or 3 feet apart that was not being well-informed by information in analytical work by the cdc, the cdc put out guidance to maintain 6 feet of distance between themselves that was a costly of guidance through the whole pandemic, enforcement and schools to remain shut and forced many businesses to remain shut because they could not allow for 6 feet of distance between the customers or students that was not based on sound science it was based on old science looking a droplet transmission and influenza we know the coronavirus bread primarily through aerosol and respiratory particles, the
9:11 pm
guidance wasn't revised louis finally revises spring with the biden administration put pressure on cdc to revisit the guidance they recognize the six-foot requirement was forcing schools to remain shut cdc settled on a conclusion as long as children are wearing masks they can maintain 3 feet of distance and that would be appropriate they based on a study last fall where they looked at mass individuals and found that two people wearing masks and 3 feet apart you can reduce transmission by 70% which begs the question if they had the result, the study result in the fall why did it take them until the spring to update the guidance. jack: that the interesting guidance on the efficacy of masks, not heard that before, you mentioned schools, many parents are eager to get the booster shot were taken october or november but can i ask you about the school situation they
9:12 pm
want to feel reassured it is safe should they thank any differently from the measles, mumps, rubella and any other shots kids have to take before getting in schools. >> the vaccines from 5 - 11 be developed by pfizer and hopefully available soon subject to a review by the food and drug administration it is basically the same vaccine being used in adults but at smaller doses, it's a 30-microgram dose one being used in children ages 5 - 11 is been proposed to be used in the 10-microgram it's basically one third of the dose being used in adults, we have a lot of safety data with the vaccine and a lot of individual data of the vaccine being used in children at the younger age, that's informing decisions and against people a lot of confidence there's a lot of information available on which the decision is about the vaccines. >> i hear people say unvaccinated people can't hurt anyone else do you agree with that and what do you say as a leading authority on medicine and science hesitancy. >> and unvaccinated individual
9:13 pm
can transmit the infection to other vaccinated individuals as well as vaccinated individuals. even in those who have been vaccinated. remaining unvaccinated you're putting yourself at risk and putting other people at risk, you created the risk that your gonna be a chain and a source of transmission within the community. jack: towards the end of your book you make the case we should harness the national security apparatus to help us fight the next pandemic, how can the cia be helpful in this. >> historically we have relied on multi-battle engagement between different nations to alert us when a virus arrives in a foreign country and we seen time and time again that countries have a been forthcoming about the outbreaks that was the case in sars covid to it was certainly the case in sars one were trying to withheld key information about virus as well seen and other nations were gonna have to get our tools of national security more engaged in the overseas mission
9:14 pm
moderating hotspots trying to identify when these affections to emerge that means the cia and nsa the public of community has wanted anywhere near this mission they fear if the cia or others got involved in this admission, anyone with a white coat would be perceived to be a spy, we live in a world we no longer can be complacent about this. jack: very important stuff can you give us two more bullets on things we ought to do to tamp this down in the future. >> i think first of all we need to build better capacities in this country to try to scale up the production the things that we need to protect ourselves from a public health crisis of this magnitude that means having the ability to mass-produce and deploy a diagnostic test of scalloped testing that was the missing link earlier in this pandemic in the ability to domestically produce the biological drugs were gonna need as a first line of defense of a strain of a virus, we don't have
9:15 pm
a residual capacity to manufacture in this country when this virus first emerge, the coronavirus first emerged we scramble to find domestic capacity of the drugs and we never had enough and we still have enough were unity better systems for gathering data and informing policymakers in a real-time fashion about how these pathogens are spreading across united states we relied on the cdc to collect data they have very data that they look at in the analytical work to try to inform not just policymakers but consumers on what they should do to protect themselves and what we found it agency lacks good information they did not have good information coming into the agency and the analytical work that they did took a lot of time if it's going to be the cdc that we rely on were gonna have to change the culture of the organization and the way that they do business. >> and optimistic note people are eager together on thanksgiving. it seems to be slowing a bit,
9:16 pm
what shape are we going to be a by the end of november? >> barring anything unexpected happen with the new variant with the immunity with vaccination or prior infection the case level in the south is coming down very sharply were seen epidemic surges in other parts of the country like the midwest and the pacific northwest the northeast so far has not seen a big delta wave bye-bye thanksgiving the delta wave probably will have run its course across old country on the back end of that prevalence levels should start to decline. jack: that is great news, good place to end it, thank you so much for being on the show. jack: could global supply chain into empty shelves and global supply chain the season.
