tv The Claman Countdown FOX Business October 6, 2021 3:00pm-4:00pm EDT
year end. charles: i forgot to bring my pom-poms. next time pom-poms and a tambourine. you are the man i agree with everything that you are saying, we have strong fundamentals, i will talk to you again real soon meanwhile amazing reversal cheryl casone and for liz claman, the market needs to have questions answered. >> there is several questions that need to be answered including the debt ceiling on the senate floor which we are going to have and that is the breaking news. this could be why the markets are looking a little bit better, they certainly were this morning when we were down 300 plus points on the dow you looking at a live picture at the senate floor in any moment it is scheduled to hold a procedural vote to suspend the debt ceiling it is expected to fail as a republican still remain firm in
blocking any attempt by democrats to raise it, but the markets are coming up off the floor at the senate minority leader, mitch mcconnell opened the door a crack if you will for a possible compromise. markets turn positive after being in the red most of the day, the dow is still lower by only five points, s&p is higher by three and nasdaq higher by 30 and change, the senate moving after what we saw earlier president joe biden sitting down with the ceos of the nation's biggest banks to warn of the dire consequences of a potential default if the debt ceiling is not raised, were gonna take you to the white house for the up to minute details it's been a very fast-moving chain of events over the last hour. speaking of chain, a fox supply chain, the crisis holding goods and cargo hostage at america port we will talk to the ceo how
his company is trying to help marine shippers find smooth sailing and there's go daddy taking on square head on how the small business website host is moving into the brick-and-mortar store of its customers with a new point of service hardware. you heard me right. back to the breaking news, this is really just touching go and it is quick changing this is a live picture at capitol hill on the senate floor here's what happened at mcconnell reportedly is offering a short-term raise of the nations that limit this comes as the senate is expected to hold a vote at any minute to break the filibuster on the debt ceiling the vote brought to the floor by the democrats, by chuck schumer, the u.s. government is set to run out of money to pay its bills and faces default in 12 days, october 18 is the
crucial dates. the senate is going to vote on a bill that was passed by the house to suspend the debt ceiling until december of 2022, that is next year that is a question all of this coming as president biden has a default with the top ceos from j.p. morgan chase, bank of america, citigroup, the nasdaq among other high-profile leaders that were there making the case for lawmakers to take action to address the debt ceiling and avoid an economic catastrophe let's go live to the white house, edward lawrence is following all of the action you need a scorecard to keep up on what is happening. >> even a flowchart everything is moving so quickly within this hour senate minority leader mitch mcconnell will take to the floor and talk about that proposal he has given to democrats. the proposal to suspend or raise the debt ceiling to a certain
number fox has been told that certain number has been given to democrats we don't know what that number is or they can suspend the debt ceiling but just until november, through november into december which sinks it up to the government running out of money here's the white house president biden had a meeting with corporate ceos and big bank ceos, you can see them they're all talking, the meeting was meant to put pressure on republicans for the businesses in the president blaming republicans. >> we have the votes, democrats are willing to step up and stop this economic catastrophe if senate republicans would get out of the way. but i senate republican friends are planning to block the vote. >> there may be a deal he was backed up by the citibank ceo who says we cannot have a catastrophe of our making. >> everyday is delayed right now
it comes with an increase in price as we began to see in the markets already starting last friday. america cannot default on the debt because the u.s. treasury market is the bedrock of our financial system domestically and globally. >> republicans say that democrats knew this was coming for at least three or four weeks and instead chose to focus on $3.5 trillion in the social infrastructure package. >> this is an economic crisis of their own making they have the ability to pass the debt ceiling on their own, the sooner that they get to it, the better at the end of the day it will be done and democrats we use the reconciliation bill. >> if they use the reconciliation bill they have to put a number exactly how much they would like to raise the debt ceiling they cannot suspend that without republican help it seems there's an offer on the table from the republican minority leader in the senate to say we can suspend but just through november or we can have a certain number to raise the
debt ceiling, again fox does not know what that number is we may hear within your our. cheryl: were just being told as you were speaking, it looks like they're going to spend delay, the procedural vote we were expecting during this hour. the senate democratic aides are telling fox business they are postponing the debt limit vote, we are going to assume that that is because of this offer to mitch mcconnell. >> absolutely this could be a signal that they're willing to listen to what he says, is very interesting president joe biden has not had a conversation with mitch mcconnell, mcconnell's office say they have not had a conversation with janet yellen about the debt ceiling the letter went out from mitch mcconnell to the president talking about how democrats need to take care of this. it's a very interesting maneuver but if that vote is put off as
you said then they are wanting to see how this plays out in terms of being able to come to a deal between republicans and democrats we do not know what that number is, this is the key for the midterms, democrats do not want to put a dollar figure two it because that would be held against them in the midterms. >> the next shoe is where you are standing the white house, please come back, let us know if the white house comes out with any statement or if you get any more information. i'm anxiously waiting to hear what's going on. then he very much there is no i in team at fox business. >> that is right. cheryl: thank you, we did this together, energy prices may be down due to a surprise bill of inventory, two weeks in a row of surprise bills and supply but don't let the dip fool you even though commodities are backing at multiyear highs oil finished
yesterday at the highest level we have seen in five years we were at $79 and we backed offs . >> this is been coming for a while in the market so a lot of commodities have risen to seven year highs corn, wheat, soybeans in a multiyear high this has been the result of restarting coming off the shutdown in 2020
we haven't had to deal with this so it's a new experience and if i had one more person tell me that winter is coming i would feel like i'm in an episode of a "game of thrones", yet winter is coming in the care for higher prices is higher prices, the market has reset and we'll see where we are this minute everybody expects the worst but at the end of the day the market has repriced and will see where we are, just as you were talking about natural gas we are already lower on the day, some people might call that key reversal we will see maybe the last person that cannot stand not only natural gas bought it now we can have a correction lower. it's good to take a unfold and all expect more volatility in these markets and this started because of what happened in 2020. cheryl: talk about volatility that's the name of the game for
participants and on the other side there is energy story that you also have the job story adp it did, better-than-expected, a piece of that was travel and leisure that is good news, the bad news on the other side this leads to friday's job report for september this could mean the fed could taper sooner rather than later. >> we have a lot of crosscurrents, clearly, today's reaction, just a whisper of a compromise over the debt ceiling to remind all of us, this is political theater at its best we've seen the show before i been doing this for 55, 60 years, we have been down this road so many times. this too will get resolved and by today's action of the market it will get resolved in a positive way. cheryl: you are talking about the debt ceiling. >> i am into touch on the energy
situation, the current administration basically set us up for the world and what were dealing with and that combined with the fact that a lot of the effort to go to alternative energy has shut down a lot of production and quite frankly we have a shortage whether the price of natural gas is up because winter is coming that remains to be seen how bad the winter will be but the reality, were in a world that requires a lot of fossil fuels and if you cutback reduction like the u.s. has done clearly it'll have a negative impact on the price of energy and the jobs report we will have to see what it is on friday but the good news were a week away from third-quarter earnings with the big banks and all indications earnings should be coming in pretty good and
that should be good for the market. cheryl: that would be nice with the back-and-forth and volatility over the last see three sessions in particular. it's only wednesday, thank you very much we appreciate a lot to absorb premarket politics, energy and all kinds of numbers we have this coming up square helping small businesses sell their products anywhere, anytime can new competition dethrone the kingpin, coming up next what go daddy is doing to compete with the payment all-star go daddy ceo next on "the claman countdown". take a look at the minutes

electric vehicles. that's why we will make sure we have a complete portfolio, affordable cds that people will want to buy. >> that of course is looking to the future. right now one of the challenges general motors and all the automakers are facing is the chip shortage, that hurt third-quarter sales of new vehicles for general motors down about 33% year-over-year, i had a chance to catch up with gm president mark royce, he says that is stabilizing, it's starting to improve in the fourth quarter and they expect inventory at dealerships to improve anymore in 2022. >> number won this is probably, this and the pandemic will change the way people by and our dealers are very agile and very aware of that. we are selling things that they can see into the pipeline when the car is built at the plant and they can sell what that vehicle is even before it hits their lot.

cheryl: the port of los angeles executive director jean announcing how ports should tackle supply chain bottlenecks, he is saying that ports need to take advantage of the capacity they have in front of them before bumping up to 24/7 schedule which would add additional cost for shipping hubs, right now 113 ships are waiting to dock in the united states and canada with over half idling outside of the ports of long beach and los angeles. companies across the u.s. are feeling the ripple effects of million shipping containers stranded as see helping to
navigate this is flex port founder and ceo ryan petterson who joined us on fox business interview, correct me if i'm wrong you help companies get more things into these containers with your technology, the bigger problem you can't get the containers offloaded at the port, what do you see right now. >> it really is a mess as you described over 50 ships waiting offshore at the port of long beach, the way to think about this we had so much volume of containers coming into the country as consumers shift in spending for buying goods instead of going to restaurants and bars and traveling the surge of capacity and volumes we haven't been able to handle it the ports are overloaded there's traffic gm's of trucks trying to get into the port and the backlog where the ships are offshore has led to a spike in containers to almost five times normal levels of pre-pandemic pricing. it is a real mess and i think christmas is at risk for all the
american companies trying to get merchandise with it sitting offshore and they need to get it stocked on the shelves. cheryl: i had a port official on fox business and he said one of the biggest problems he is seen as truck drivers. they cannot get truck drivers to actually get the cargo ship and to move everything out of the port. he made an emphasis to blame the truck drivers does not ring correct with you to be honest. >> i think it's hard to assign blame to anyone place is a systemic problem were looking at a market failure for example when there's so much volume coming in the trucks are trying to come to the port and you get a traffic jam we've all been in those if you add more trucks it doesn't solve the problem and what you're finding, where truck drivers used to be able to take two containers per day, drop one off and get another one, there
now only able to do one because they spent so much time in traffic and truck drivers are getting less money and some are opting out there may be better ways to make a living than sitting in traffic. cheryl: he said they're going to fedex, ups and other places where there is more money, i guess that's the pandemic story. i want to ask you about these numbers, before a container the typical price from what i was reading was $3200, now it is $20000. >> is that true customer. >> yes if you don't have a long-term contract, many of the long-term contracts are not being honored is really hard to get space on the ship if it's full they might be oversold and might not be able to ship on the old rates they're paying whatever price they can to get loaded. cheryl: what about airplanes and cargo aircraft. >> remember at 50% of the world
freight flies and passenger planes and many of those are not flying to asia there's not a lot of flights going to and from china right now that's not really going to be a solution either. cheryl: that is fascinating how do you help these companies save money, i'm sure there knocking on your door right now. >> we are over selling there is a number that always helps technology companies, we give you to help you understand when the shipment will arrive and use machine learning to predict transit times in a better understanding of where your inventory is in when you can count on it being in stock. we look inside the containers we are seeing on averages only 70% full so we help companies better plan and make sure the filling them to the brim if you can get more containers on the ship, get more stuff in the container that definitely save you money to make sure you get the inventory in the stock. and we have a mobile app that we use for our truckers, this is helping our truckers go to the
port and be much more efficient because they can pick up any container assigned to them instead of just the one were able to do much more efficient loading at the port for truck drivers we have almost 40% of the trucks that deport trucking in the united states using our technology. cheryl: this all comes back to technology. thank you very much, we appreciate it. a hollywood ending for afc and crypto. the big move why the theater chain is feeling a new leg and the trip to run, the dow is still higher up 18 points we'll be right back. ♪

teams to be having a tough time getting his pics approved by congress charlie gasparino is here with start with the federal housing finance. >> it is a combination with logjam with a 50/50 senate and also dividing him administration that delayed fhfa federal housing finance agency is a huge position for the economy, this is the person this is has a policy whether expansive meaning you can use the fannie and freddie. >> to expand housing to people in lower income categories as biden wants to do or do you prioritize that's why it's a huge story for shareholders, there is a lot of trading of the stock, if we show a longer-term chart gse frannie and freddie are trading below a dollar and they have for a while that's very interesting why is that my view that is pricing and the
market has found something that we did not know and it'll be coming out now at the head of the agency is unlikely to be a guy named mike who is running a nonprofit and a consumer advocate he's considered somebody who wanted to prioritize fannie and freddie and taken out of government control that would be good for the shareholders. progressive move-in and said no he's not getting the job and it looks like sandra thompson who is the acting fat who some the progressives like like maxine waters will remain through the midterms, that is not her that's the woman that could be the occ. cheryl: another appointment. >> that the office control of currency. the occ job is interesting in itself because that one is
likely to get a ton of backlash from republicans if you have all the logjam including occ g went to the university of moscow for an undergrad in economics if you think about what that means. >> it's funny but it's not you have her inattentive judges schumer and you need four times to get them there because it's a 50/50 senate and stopping their forces, the theory is given the progressive backlash to calhoun and the theories that you keep thompson in that job, that is not good for shareholders and that's what you see the shares of fannie and freddie trading below a dollar. cheryl: there knocking to prioritize fannie and freddie. >> we should point out this the trap of initiation was making moves to that, steven mnuchin decided not to do that, there is a court battle which allowed biden to pick the head of the f hfa, is a presidential appointee
so he takes out who wanted to prioritize, the theory was that mr. calhoun with the limited privatization making it utilities but getting them out of government control, with him out of the way or looking like he's not going to get the job in sandra thompson, that is why the shares are trading off. what's going to happen is status quo and i could tell you one thing amc shareholders are nuts they go crazy on twitter, the crypto people go nuts they go crazy, fannie and freddie traders are crazy to its known as fannie gate. cheryl: thank you very much, a huge story and thank you for bringing that to the show. facebook mark zuckerberg responding to what frances haugen slams what the social network ceo had to say and what
