mark the next guest says global diversity is key for more, i'm joined by the co- chief investment officer at invest net dana, thanks for being here. >> thanks frank. >> dana, the ten-year above 1.7. we saw the blowout jobs report what are we seeing we are seeing a trend toward inflation or the recovery and things ticking up? >> it is a great question. a lot of indication up consumer confidence is up. it is both expectation and survey of what people feel is their present circumstances. in fact, we have all of those covid checks hitting everybody's pocketbooks. i think expectation of the retail surge wouldn't be out of
the realm. seeing a lot of positive ca indicat indicators is this inflationary or is it growth are we having the recovery that we were hoping for as opposed to the square root? you will see differing views on this i think certainly there is a good aspect of this which is growth in the economy. there are some possible setbacks we could see spikes in covid variants could be a problem. so far, so good on the economic front. >> dana, i want to ask another question last quarter, we saw you tech lag. we saw things like dow transport up 16% and the russell up 12%. what does that say about the thought of this being a recovery versus inflation >> certainly value stocks and we're seeing financials and
industrials and energy doing well value stocks have been pummeled for several years now. obviously making a comeback. that's typical in a recovery value tends to do well in recovery it's his or miss when with markets are down and last year with the completion of the fact that you had people at home and tech stocks well situated for that situation you know it is not surprising we are finally seeing that rotation to value. will it continue do we expect that the s&p will stay as broad as it is right now? i think certainly for a time i think the underlining premise for tech stock is very good. at the end of the day, the companies are well positioned. this is not a tech basketball w bubble where companies are out
performing it is different in this case i expect the s&p to stay broad i expected value stocks to do well for a time. >> dana, before we let you go, speaking of someone's thesis, i'm curious how your thesis is changed by the corporate stock changed to 28% >> certainly there will be winners and losers as we move forward as that happens and another part to the plan and what happens to the tax rates for corporations globally. it looks like there is some headwind there for companies in terms of just some of the plans. i think also that as we get into the year, we are certainly going to have our work cut out to see what happens with this tax increase i don't think it is the only one we will see. i think we are seeing the biden administration split up the tax increase and infrastructure bill
so that as we move forward, we may see those personal income tax proposals come back on the table as well. winners and losers it is very early in the game to see where we will end up on this >> dana, we appreciate the insight. thanks for being here. >> thank you turning attention to washington the biden administration is pushing hard to sell his infrastructure jobs plan with republicans questioning not only the tax increase to pay for it, but what is actually in that bill tracie potts is live with more good morning, tracie >> reporter: frank, good morning. the push begins today with vice president harris in california she has a listing session in oakland and tomorrow in chicago. talking jobs and infrastructure. the game plan is to get the public behind it to get washington moving. republicans are hinting they might support the president
biden infrastructure plan if he sticks with roads and bridges and broadband and gets rid of the rest. >> easy bipartisan win if you keep this package focus ed on infrastructure >> reporter: and nix the tax increase >> the worst way to pay for it >> reporter: transportation secretary pete buttigieg says the administration is p opopen ideas to pay for the plan, but they think it is fair to tax big business. >> we have seen corporations paying zero. we're just asking corporations to pay their fair share. >> reporter: the idea is to create jobs in the economy devastated by covid. health experts disagree if the u.s. is on the edge of another surge. >> we will see in the next two weeks the highest number of cases reported globally. >> i think there is enough i

given how high home prices are, why aren't are more listing homes without prompted by agents >> reporter: because they are afraid they won't find or afford anything else to buy remember, we hhave vaccines coming through the system and feeling better about the economy, people don't want other people walking through their houses a little worried having an open house and having buyers come through. they don't want to go through the process right now. it is really what is affordable out to buy or even to rent rental market is pricey. >> another question. are real estate agents hurt by the trend of companies going in and buying homes for cash and fix up and flip? i get tons of texts. people offering to buy me y hou. >> it is not just the i buy.
they are growing and some are real estate companies. there is increasing competition among large markets in houston a growing share of investors in the market because they know the single family rental market which they turn homes into, is lucrative. competition among investors which are all cash that is is tough competition >> diana, thank you. coming up on "worldwide exchange." one state is teaming up on a vaccine passport and a bid to get life closer to normal. as we head to break. carl icahn naming a former executive to be the cio of his firm according to the wall street journal, the chief investment officer begins his new role today. gm unveiling the electric

♪ welcome back the cdc relaxing travel guidance for americans who receive the covid vaccine. vaccinated people can travel domestically and internationally as as long as they wear face coverings. administering over 4 million doses on saturday. 23% of americans over the age of 18 have been fully vaccinated. in new york, one-third of the residents received the vaccine new york is rolling out a vaccine passport this was the first weekend that
venues could reopen at one-third of capacity. for more on the vaccine passport, i'm joined by katharine wild good morning thank you for being here a really exciting development with the vaccine passports offered. >> thank you, frank. absolutely it is exciting fewer than 10% of manhattan's 1 million office workers are back and traveling tourism industry is still way down. row hotels are half empty. it makes a difference that new york has come up with the pass that will validate via your phone, you can have the full vaccination. that is a better system. these are the cdc paper cards that are easy for anybody to print. not a safe way to regulate this is a very important break through using technology and using the fact that we have the
ability to really validate through the state department of health that you are vaccinated >> katharine, technology is a great way to aggregate information. somebody can say they are vaccinated a lot of data to absorb, i guess. cases on the rise and vaccine rollout is happening what does this passport do what can everybody agree on? we know what a green light means and we know what a red light means. what does the passport provide >> again, the cdc has a record of everyone who has gotten a vaccine. the number of your doses and source of your dose. all of the specifics they keep that record. they can share that record only with the state department of health in turn, in new york state, the
state department of health is not going to share your information. all they are going to do is validate you had the proper dosage of the vaccine and they know what date you had it. so, this is an important breakthrough and many people don't realize we will probably have booster shots for the vaccine for the rest of our lives. a single card will not do the trick. it will have to be updated privacy is maintained through an ibm block chain system no question of releasing health data to any sources. this is a very secure system it will be able to sit on top of other systems we have for a number of years with private company clear which had a tsa pass so you can get expedited clearance into the airport to get on the airplane. that's the same idea
your i.d. plus your health pass. the pass could sit on top of those kind of interventions so you carry one i.d. all in your phone. >> again, a really exciting development. i'm glad you addressed the privacy concerns we have to get going in a second before we let you go, which industry or business do you see benefitting the most from the vaccine passports? >> well, across the board, i think everyone will benefit. the first thing is we get the office workers back in the buildings. to do that, we have to have a universal pass so you are not just going with the system that's health check in your office you have a universal ability to move ranaround the city. the vaccine pass will be able to do that. we're excited to have it available. >> all right thank you so much for being here we appreciate it still on deck on "worldwide

welcome back turning back to the markets. futures pointing to strong gains. my next guest says we should expect a macro recovery. joining me now is joanne feeney. >> good morning, frank >> we showed stats earlier where 23% of people got a dose, but cases are back up to the august and september levels what does that mean for the recovery on a macro level and what sector do you see showing that recovery first if it is going to happen? >> frank, you know, clearly it is a tough thing for folks suffering from covid we are seeing cases rise in the u.s. and in europe and asia as
well and globally. that is a concern. in the u.s., we have an advantage. a large advantage which is the number of vaccinations taking place. that number is accelerating. you know, in the u.s., a race between the vaccine and the coronavirus itself you know, because we're vaccinating so many people, we are going to come out of this sooner than else wwhere. when we look at the macro recovery, we will see the u.s. lead the world we expect the global recovery to be a tailwind. the u.s. will come out of this first. a lot of consumer savings and pent up and waiting to be spent. it is starting to come back. the trade deficit is expanding because the u.s. consumer is buying more. that is a natural outcome and a sign the u.s. is recovering more quickly. yes, it is concerning that cases are rising particularly
globally here in the u.s., the vaccination pace is really ultimately going to win that race we could have some rough sledding ahead for the next few weeks. consumers have a lot of savings and starting to spend it already. in terms of sectors, frank, you asked several sectors seeing an uplift look at the consumer space travel space people on the roads and stopping at the convenience store tj maxx. people want to start shopping again. consumer spending will see a lift don't for get about tech although some of them are expensive, there is a lot that is still cheap here and will get an extra boost from the infrastructure plan whenever that comes along that will take time. >> a lot of government stimulus. whether it goes to consumers or industry that could be coming up.
as we look at the current environment, how important are stocks that pay out dividends right now? >> frank, it depends on the investor we have clients who are looking more toward future so appreciation. we have clients in retirement phase and they want a portfolio set up for them that delivers yield. you know, what with we do for clients is build portfolios of stock. we customize depending on the needs. dividends are broadly spread you can find the banks and insurance companies. you can find good dividends in the longer-term technology plays. cisco is a good place. ibm is an interesting play right now with the relatively new ceo and efforts. qualcomm has seen the stock pull back right in the middle of the move to 5g. if the infrastructure plan does
pass, there's going to be a lot of spending on broadband anybody involved in the wireless infrastructure plays like qualcomm or corevo there are a lot of opportunities for the dividend reopening and longer term tech >> joanne, you mentioned financials being one way to play for dividends. as rates continue to rise, people are turning to financials how do companies plan with the reopening? do people plan on that or the traditional banks? >> i think that fintech is playing an increasing role we hear the presidents of the federal reserve banks talk about the importance of the conventional banks to build up technology make sure they are ready for the new reality where more mobile
