>> coming up, are you planning a big scrambling for the holiday season or just the opposite? will get the latest on what to expect live from our financial expert and just weeks after announcing a pause on homelessness funds, governor newsom announcing he is really saying that money. and later, why investigators say a deadly house fire in
underway and despite a lot of worry about a the pretty good. that's depending you. talk to it seems at least some people hgve not yet put away their wallets. yeah, with black friday, a week from today, people are already looking for those deals. and joining us now to talk more about the >> holiday shopping outlook is george know chevy financial advisor from morgan stanley. so george is outlook. merry and bright. >> well, dan, one of 2 things are going to happen either. santa claus is going visit. you are the grinch is going visit. you and this holiday season is going to affect the consumer. it's also going to affect the retailer. the consumer really has 3 had once they got to prepare for first one is inflation good. you're just going to cost more. even if they get a discount, they're going to be spending more than it did last year unless the budget can get it under control. also, all of us, you know, we put our presence on a credit card. hopefully we pay it off the following month. but if we don't, we have rising interest rates. the federal reserve has raised the lending rates to banks. they in turn, raised the credit card rates and those rates are in the 20% range. so, you know, if people
don't manage their of their expenses on credit cards be very expensive. end. thirdly, other, there's fading savings during covid. we have the largest savings since world war. 2, but with inflation and food cost you more in gas, costing more people been coming out of pocket out of their savings to help offset that. >> george, i'm glad we have you. we've had the forecast all over the place. we had a story about know people would rather travel than buy gifts now they're kind of spending. so is it too early to know what they're going to do? >> know that they're going to spend. i mean, they're they're they're smart and emphasis now on services versus things. so things like computers and this. but gm is that we all bought during covid. they're going to be. but this holiday season because we have enough now, morgan stanley survey, when we surveyed our consumers, 70% of the consumer said they're not buying anything unless they get at least a 20% discount. the survey further told us they only 38% of the people surveyed were going to be spending more this holiday
season. those are the high high earners, though, when we peel back the survey, 28% of the group said they're going to spend the same at 27% said they're going to spend less. so that's a challenge for the retailers. and the retailers are going to be heavily discounting as we get into black friday to try to get your wallet. share so they can, you know, get their their sales up. george, you know, what i'm curious about is even if you get deals when your holiday shopping. >> how many people might also be saying, i'm you know, i'm going to look into those after pay programs, right where you can do that, the monthly or weekly payments that don't have those interest rates. the klarna is firms. those programs, right? because i mean, it makes it seem like you're not necessarily pulling the band-aid all off at once. >> well, that's a very good, very good point. you know, the retailers are going to come up with all kinds of little models to try to get you and to try to get your wallet. share because at the end of the day, the retailers have to have really, really good savings. now, the problem for the retailer says if they discount too far and give too
many deals away, like you just mentioned, then there, then they're going to lose profitability. and what happens is they're the winner and sales. but in the beginning of the following year, when the after poured earnings, there's a loser because their marches are really, really short. so it's going to be challenging for the retailers and also for the consumers, you know, watching their wallet, getting a really good deal. and i think we're going to the past. we've seen what ron nixon clothing, the number one in terms of sales results. but i think we're i think we're going to see these gift cards. number one. i mean, that consumers want to be able to give experiences to their children and their friends. so they're going to give gift cards dinners on them and travel and those sorts of things where people can get more experiences versus thinks people spent a lot of money on things right after covid and now they want to experience and have some pleasure. yeah. gift card to kind of cool again. george rr, they're of trams that are standing out. i mean, for example, likely to see more. >> thrift shopping them high and retail.
>> well, it's it's totally discounting because in our survey, also it we went through what the concerns are for people in the number one concern. it's really inflation that comes up. number one, our political environment comes up. number 2, covid is number 3. but number one is inflation because, you know, people have to spend they they have their their their income coming in expenses. going up fixed expenses. they have to pay. but they're seeing all these variable expenses going up. that means you're taking money out of their retirement. so they're really, really troubled long term. this is going continue. and that's why we have to kind of support in a way, even though it's painful, the federals are raising the federal funds rate to banks to raise their rates to us. thanks. cost more lending his really shut down in terms of home buying and those sort of thing. so it's kind of people process rather going through in the middle of it. we have christmas and with black friday, as you know, theoretically the retailers operate in the red all year and they really count on black friday, 2 to break even. and it's going to be a fight out there. they're going offer all kinds of perks for the consumers coming in. but the
consumers can't be a fork, but they really have to do make a list right down the list of those people you want to buy for set a budget. it's really important. we watch your expenses going forward until we get inflation under control. now that sounds like good advice any time, but particularly now >> hard to do. yeah. george in the always a pleasure. thank you for your time. >> well, thank you for being here. appreciate it. hard to take a look at the forecast as we have this live shot of the market there. oh, yeah. the bucky barnes to be talking about all you love outside of the explorer is like saying and a safe and a look at. >> we've got brittany begley joining us. brittany waiting about the buck. if you know what i like, it gets me excited. so there you go. and you were just talking about holiday travel expected to be up. so we're going to see the extra traffic and was like, all right. let's take a look at the airport. >> thankfully, it's nice and clear. i did just no major delays. thankfully when it comes to flights, that's the good news is we take a look at
weather and traffic together for you for the most part, we're in the green. so i noticed a couple delays but nothing too crazy. and going to watch it throughout the evening. taking a look at the big picture, what we're really going to be watching for you. the breezy conditions. we have those 2 different competing weather systems coming together to bring us those gusty winds. so we'll see those warmer temperatures today and we're going to see those gusty winds. take a look. some places like petaluma tonight at 11, we're still going to have those wind gusts of 32 miles per hour. and we've been up north dealing with those stronger winds for the most of the day. and as we fast forward the clock into tomorrow morning, places even like the coast are going to see consistent, gusty winds of 24 miles per hour. that means tomorrow. yeah, it's still going to be warm not as warm as today, but it's still going to be one to the north santa rosa. 67 right there on the coast, half moon bay. we're looking at 65 san francisco. 64 right there at average inland temperatures. 64 as well. so for the most part, we're going to stay in the 60's. yes, a little bit warmer than average as we take a look at that 7 day forecast.
