9:00 am
>> when i read that story i was in disbelief. my wife was rescued by the coast guard in the caribbean leaving the socialist tyranny of fidel castro and her family was separated. we would never ask for anything like that from the government. maria: she has seen this before. great to have you this morning. have a great weekend, see you monday. "varney and company" starts now. stuart: we have a jampacked friday, news on all fronts, start with this. amazon and apple done in by supply-chain trouble. amazon sees the problem continuing and both committed the unpardonable sin of missing wall street expectations. down they go big time. microsoft doing really well. it that it may soon dethrone
9:01 am
apple as the most valuable company, apple is worth $2.5 trillion in following, microsoft is worth $2.4 trillion and rising. because of the apple and amazon declined there's plenty of red ink on wall street in premarket action, the dow still very close to its all-time high down 50 points, the s&p still very close to its series of highs but a big drop for the nasdaq influenced by apple and amazon. nasdaq down 130. let's get away from money and turned to politics, a dramatic turn in the virginia governor's race, republican glenn youngcan leads terry mcauliffe by 8 points, last week it was a dead heat, now it is not. how will voters feel about this? the biden administration is going to pay out big big money to families separated at the
9:02 am
border, 450,$000 per person. some families will receive $1 million, we will be paying illegals more than we pay the relatives of soldiers killed in action. the socialists are not happy with the big spending plan so they are blocking a vote on the infrastructure plan. they may think both -- for sending plans. the left calls the shots for the democratic party. the president has plenty europe carrying a legislative failure, civil war among the democrats. i promised a big show, friday october 20 ninth 2021, "varney and company" is about to begin. ♪♪ ♪♪ stuart: all right.
9:03 am
that is virginia. very appropriate place to start because there's a new foss paul mentioned at the top of the show. glenn youngcan leads terry mcauliffe by eight points in virginia -- virginia's race. it goes from the dead heat to an 8 point lead. >> the other pole went from a 5 point deficit to an 8 point lead for youngkin in the span of a few weeks and that is typical, somebody found a tape of doing something really bad category, that's not the situation as far as we know. that is based solely on education and the fears that the voters in virginia regardless of party have for education and the situation where former governor wilder came out more or less with an
9:04 am
endorsement of youngkin. when you have that happen the african americans in virginia are saying i don't know if this mcauliffe guy is the guy for me combined with suburban soccer moms. stuart: there will always be people who say it was a fox poll. what is your answer to that? >> foxholes historically have been extremely accurate much to the chagrin of some of our viewers but they have been extremely accurate. i'm headed to virginia in 3 hours to get the polls to the people covering it on fox and friends. i'm curious what happens in the next 96 hours. stuart: if youngkin wins, that is a major breakthrough for the republicans at a disaster for the democrats. >> combines that with mitch mcconnell's strategy, the debt ceiling in december combined those two republicans have an amazing negotiating chips to get what they want from a congress that is still controlled by the democrats. stuart: thanks for that. i will get more from you at the
9:05 am
11:00 hour. let's turn to amazon. they reported along with apple neither of them did well. >> reporter: good friday morning. for amazon that chaos added to billion dollars and that is expected to double, their outlook disappointing, so has andy jaffe's performance as ceo, he steps down 6%. final thing on amazon, cloud and services revenue bigger than retail for the first time. similar story at apple when you look at the supply chains, $6 billion in sales. tim cook says it will get worse. i have good news for apple. this is a supply problem, not a demand one. revenue light, $83 billion, stock down 3.5%. stuart: of apple and amazon open up this morning at those reduced prices, i believe
9:06 am
microsoft will overtake apple as this country's most valuable company. >> worth $2.5 trillion. of this loss for apple sticks and microsoft is higher it will be worth $200 trillion, number one in the us. stuart: i didn't see it, even though i bought it a few years ago. you've got to explain to me what facebook, they changed their name to meta-blooge >> can we have mark zuckerberg do it? >> the next platform will be more immersive in the experience. you can do everything you imagined. stuart: i don't want to be immersed. i to step into this new universe. lauren: it is augmented and virtual reality. why rebrand the facebook company meta-verse?
9:07 am
they want to decouple the platforms that are under fire for being toxic and dishonest from the ambitions of mark zuckerberg. nobody is fooled, we all know what facebook is and you can compare this to what google did when they created out the bat as the umbrella company. when alphabet did that, their cofounders distanced themselves and the company was mark zuckerberg is doing the opposite. stuart: do you think he wants to take facebook away from advertising? because that revenue is the basis for facebook. lauren: i will give you that. stuart: look in the future they might want to get into different things apart from advertising. lauren: advertising in the meta-verse where you don't want to go. you can bring in big advertiser dollars. if he is right that is where he's putting his money. stuart: todd pyro is laughing at me about the meta-verse. >> you sound like a british scientist, i don't want to be immersed.
9:08 am
i don't want to be immersed. stuart: my grandchildren might love it and probably will. maria: and never leave their houses. stuart: that will be their life and facebook is up. look at big tech, across-the-board. it is all down except facebook. brian belsky, are you buying the dip in apple and amazon? >> reporter: i am immersed in the bull market in the us which continues. the supply chain woes are very short-term. ceos will under promise and over deliver, there's going to be a supply got, which no one is talking about. in a hockey analogy, where the puck is going.
9:09 am
and and a lot of supply. that will send these stocks higher. we would be buying the in apple and amazon today. stuart: try to continue what this consensus is. stock prices will keep going higher this year and go down next year. is a big picture statement. how these see it going. >> this notion of transitory versus long-term inflation for what could happen with the pandemic, could make for a bumpy ride in 2022. we thought that as we transition to the market.
9:10 am
that is where the price momentum in 2020, 2021, the secular bull market is in place for years end, it remains very much in place and we are foolish for the long-term. >> it is at $41.60. still have some more to go in the s&p this year. thanks for being with us. check futures, i'm seeing increasing red ink. largely because of amazon and apple which dominate the exchanges with your down across-the-board. the socialist wing of the democrat party teaming up to take down a vote on the president's infrastructure bill. >> you need the vote on both bills in the house. >> we need a little bit more than an iou. >> i am a know. stuart: sounds like the roads and bridges infrastructure packages in deep trouble.
9:11 am
congressman pat fallon is next was he wants to from all the spending. the administration is in talks to pay hundreds of millions of dollars to migrant families separated under the trump administration. we are to reboard illegals with a boatload of money. i don't ink that will fly but we will certainly discuss it. ♪♪ baby ♪♪ making me crazy ♪♪ ise to be a careful steward of the things that matter to you most. i promise to bring you advice that fits your values. i promise our relationship will be one of trust and transparency. as a fiduciary, i promise to put your interests first, always. charles schwab is proud to support the independent financial advisors who are passionately dedicated to helping people achieve their financial goals. visit findyourindependentadvisor.com

the house delaying its vote on the infrastructure bill because the progressives oppose that plan. congressman pat fallon joined me now. would you kill all these spending packages? >> yes. if you handed me a magic wand i absolutely would. stuart: it is not likely. >> look at inflation. when you inject trillions into the economy they in claim inflation is at 5.4%. fuel is up 42%. homes somewhere between 13% and 20% and bacon is up 19%, patently un-american. stuart: you make the case in trillions and spending will make that inflation worse, is that your argument? >> it will aggravate it, the worst is yet to come. stuart: what about the roads and bridges part of the first infrastructure plan?
9:17 am
general consensus is that we need a little bit. a couple hundred billion. >> that is across-the-board regionally, ideological, something we need. that's real infrastructure and that would be infrastructure as well but all the other claims they are making if it is a socialist wish list they are converting it into infrastructure. stuart: the republicans could pay a political price if the spending is washed away because a lot of people would like some help with childcare or pre-k education and if you're denying it, they will vote against you. >> inflation is a tax on all of us. we can't inject trillions of
9:18 am
dollars, it seems the republicans are the only adults in the room when it comes to this. we are already a deficit and debtor nation and i don't want to increase it. i have young children and that worries me quite a bit. when the government and something out people get used to it and expected but we have to be rational here moving forward. stuart: called on. i have to cover another story and i your comment on it. it is an outrageous story. the administration could pay millions to families separated at the border in 2018. dan springer is in rio grande valley, texas. tell me more about this. >> border patrol and texas state rangers continue to work overtime to catch people who are coming into the country illegally. there is a bus being loaded with people overnight and early this morning as they continue to gear up for the caravan of
9:19 am
thousands of migrants in southern mexico but their job may have gotten harder as news spreads of the us government about to make huge payouts to migrant families separated at the border during a couple months of the trump administration. in 2018 under a controversial 0-tolerance policy children were taken from their parents and helmet detention facilities while their parents were sent back to their home countries. the wall street journal is reporting a settlement with those families that pay 450,$000 per illegal immigrant impacted, many republican lawmakers are outraged. >> every decision president biden makes since he has been president has made our border more open to illegals. once again president biden prioritizes the rights of illegals over the rights of taxpaying working americans.
9:20 am
>> former navy seal dan crenshaw tweeted biden wants to pay illegal immigrants 450,$000 for hardship and breaking our laws, for perspective of a servicemember killed in action, their next of kin gets an insurance payment of 400,$000. according to the journal the total payout can end up being $1 billion or more. president biden called the separation policy a moral and national shame and has been working to reunite those separated families as the surge at the border continues. we shot this video in la jolla, they caught 175 people and they are being taken away right now, most of the people being caught at this spot our family members. stuart: thank you very much. let's go to the republican from the state of texas, pat fallon. you've heard the story, i'm sure you've seen it. are we going to do this?
9:21 am
450,$000. >> i pray to god not. i'm furious about this. dan crenshaw pointed out when you're killed in action as a warrior of this nation your family gets 400,$000 and we are going to subsidize illegal activity and when you subsidize something you incentivize it and get more of it. it is my understanding that a few years back they were allowed to go back to mexico as a family unit if they chose. this is a choice they make and to reward that choice is insane. we added the entire state of west virginia is legally over the past ten months under the biden administration. now we are going to do this, this is like winning the lottery. we are going to increase those record numbers. stuart: we could encourage more lawsuits, why not? >> of course.
9:22 am
we come out of the woodwork for this kind of stuff. stuart: you know the well in texas. thanks for joining us, appreciate it. back to the market. i'm seeing some red ink especially on the nasdaq but that is apple and amazon turning south. dow is down 70, s&p down 20, "the opening bell" is next. ♪♪

[upbeat music] hi, my name is tony cooper, and i'm going to tell you about exciting medicare advantage plans that can provide broad coverage and still may save you money on monthly premiums and prescription drugs. with original medicare you are covered for hospital stays and doctor office visits but you have to meet a deductible for each, and then you're still responsible for 20% of the cost. next, let's look at a medicare supplement plan. as you can see, they cover the same things as original medicare, and they also cover your medicare deductibles and coinsurance. but they often have higher monthly premiums and no prescription drug coverage.
9:25 am
now, let's take a look at humana's medicare advantage plans. with a humana medicare advantage plan, hospitals stays, doctor office visits and your original medicare deductibles are covered. and, of course, most humana medicare advantage plans include prescription drug coverage. in fact, in 2020, humana medicare advantage prescription drug plan members saved an estimated $8,400 on average on their prescription costs. most humana medicare advantage plans include a silver sneakers fitness program at no extra cost. dental, vision and hearing coverage is included with most humana medicare advantage plans. and you get telehealth coverage with a zero-dollar copay. you get all of this for as low as a zero-dollar monthly plan premium in many areas; and your doctor and hospital may already be a part of humana's large network. if you want the facts, call right now for the free decision

guide from humana. there is no obligation, so call the number on your screen right now to see if your doctor is in our network; to find out if you could save on your prescriptions, and to get our free decision guide. humana, a more human way to healthcare. stuart: all the futures point self largely because of losses apple and amazon. on that note let's bring in mark martinhaney. last time you were on the show, amazon goes to 400,$700 by the end of next year. their way down after the tough earnings report. are you going to 4700 end of next year? >> we lowered our price target.
9:27 am
i think the stock goes higher. the company was going to be very conservative or aggressive operating income and that is what happened. amazon is the second-largest employer in this country, one of those vertically integrated companies in the world so when there is wage inflation, resource inflation, amazon sees it all, $6 billion in incremental cost they are fighting against. what we need to figure out as investors is temporary, structural or elected of, accelerating investments and faster delivery. i like amazon on the other side of this so we had a clearing event quarter. in terms of revenue growth, there is no change, margins will recover. we want to buy amazon when stock is down. stuart: any problem with the new ceo? >> he has been with the company
9:28 am
20 years, we will judge him the next 3 to 5 years, this is amazon, they invest near-term, not worried about taking margins down. what it is generally done is you buy amazon the last 5, you made good returns which don't think this is any different. stuart: let's turn to google. they seem to be a real standout. i know you like it, they are down today. $2,900 a share. where is it going? >> google goes higher. i will be contrary and when i make more money for investors. you will buy good as let's when dislocated. the fundamentals are phenomenal, advertising business gated around apple
9:29 am
dislocation that is fully participating, google is a great way, great stock for long-term investors, not an enormous return start, i prefer dislocated games long-term like amazon or facebook. stuart: yesterday afternoon you were glued to your computer. did you fall off your chair when amazon reported those results? >> it has been a wild since i have fallen out of my chair. i've gotten used to the surprises that come out of this. those losses were greater than i thought. stuart: we have a 12 year bull run. ever seen anything like this? >> working the street, tech stocks for 25 years so i've gone through five years of bear
9:30 am
markets in 2000-2005, massive dislocations from the housing crisis, the covid crisis had such an odd impact, positive and negative on tech names. that is one of the greatest analytical challenges but i want to step back, identifying high quality assets, amazon, you want to stay in when they are dislocated. stuart: see you again soon. the market is open on friday morning. we open lower, the vast majority of the dow 30 stocks are in the red and the dow is down 97 points. the s&p is similar picture though it is worse down half a percentage point, the nasdaq is heavy-duty red down 3 quarters of one%. have a look at big tech across
9:31 am
the board, microsoft up, facebook up, others little changed except amazon which is open down, $150, apple shaving 28 points off the dow industrials. we heard although the earnings report and supply chain problems from apple stocks open lower, what is jpmorgan saying? >> these issues are temporary so by the dip. maybe it is time to buy apple and others agreeing, this does not impact their long-term bullishness. it is not a thesis changer, ubs calls a transitory. stuart: a lot of people buying the dip today at any moment we will see microsoft emerge as the most valuable company but you got to tell me about chevron.
9:32 am
there earnings came out, the best profit in eight years. >> they swung to a profit in eight years, the reason is easy, gas, 3 times as much and they are producing more, you have the grilling by lawmakers on capitol hill and chevron saying we will increase production by 3% annually over the next four years but it is how they do it. they are not commissioning oil projects that take years to come online because of the headaches they are getting but they will drill more shall wealth and produce more quickly. stuart: before you go on to exxon, microsoft is worth $2.45 trillion and apple is worth $2.44 trillion. microsoft. saw it coming. let's get to exxon. what have you got? >> they posted their strongest results since 2017. stuart: western digital.
9:33 am
>> they make disc drives, flash memory chips, disappointing profit guidance down 12%. guess what they blame? the supply chain. stuart: everybody is doing it. >> brokers come in and the wall street firms and half a dozen cutting their price target. stuart: a company that has no trouble with the supply chain, lucid, the electric vehicle people. they were up 30% yesterday, they are up 10% this morning. what is the story? >> deliver one of their cars, the luxury sedan for first people who place reservations and do so saturday, starts at 77,$000, the premium edition, 170,$000. the ceo compared lucid to tesla. he said they are the only two
9:34 am
easy companies in the world to design, develop and make their entire car from the battery up. a 500 mile range. stuart: $40 a share for an electric vehicle company with a 500 mile range launches the 1 on the road sunday. that is a big story. tesla keep going up a fraction, they are at $1,078 per share but you were telling me tesla is the most shorted stock. many investors saying it is going down in price. >> that is what we hear from s3 partners. if you look at other data commissioning activities the lowest 11 years, this mixed opinion on this. stuart: it is that 1077. trying to compute musk's net worth. lauren: over $300 billion. stuart: you are counting real
9:35 am
money. >> reports say, 100,000 they could double that. big demand from bluebird drivers, $300 a week. stuart: doubling that order they might do it. show me us steel, that is going up sharply, double digit gain. lauren: they keep winning, crushed there earnings and continue to set records, the language the ceo is using, they shipped 1 million tons of steel this quarter but dropped up compared to last year and raise their dividend. stuart: times change.
9:36 am
i remember us steel was not a place you wanted to be because you're getting killed with import and competition from overseas. now they are the bill of the ball, $26 a share. meta-the new name for facebook. there is another company called meta-. same name. lauren: same happened with zoom. that is a different company. for meta-better first, mark zuckerberg's new company there is a canadian material company called meta-materials. it is different. that is 7%. mark zuckerberg's company, in the rs, that's not starting to trade until december 1st. stuart: this is not the same. lauren: the same company put out a tweet and said welcome to the meta-verse but it is not us.
9:37 am
don't be confused. stuart: dow winners, headed by caterpillar, chevron, american express back in there. financial companies, s&p winners. >> there sign, stranger. stuart: don't know many of them. >> a broad range of sectors coming industrials, financials. stuart: now the nasdaq winners. facebook is on their. when did we start calling the meta-cuecue >> the summer first. the rs starts treating that way. stuart: big board. the 10 year treasury. the yield on the 10 year treasury is one.60%. checking gold, has never been moving very much, $25, bitcoin we haven't shown you that, 61,$000 a coin. oil is at $82 a barrel. natural gas, it is getting cold out there. natural gas down in price and
9:38 am
gasoline $3.40 is your national average but the same gallon of gas will cost you $4.59 in california. democrats on capitol hill treating oil executives as if they were common criminals. >> what do you have to say to america's children born into a burning world? >> a message for you and chevron's ceo, you may $29 million poisoning the planet. stuart: the administration is begging the oil companies to produce more oil. there is irony there. president biden meets with pope francis ahead of the g 20 summit. is the administration using the pope as a political ploy? jonathan morris will answer that question. despite the problem and labor shortage my next guest says it will be a monster halloween and monster holiday sales period for the retailers.

[laughter] we're trying to figure it out, believe me. good morning, everyone, 10:00 eastern. straight to your money. the dow has now turned positive. it's up 18 points. the nasdaq is not so down as it was, it's up 74 points as we speak. big tech, that's where the action is today and for the last 15 years. facebook is up. got that new name coming. microsoft is up, the rest of them though, google, apple and amazon, are down. especially amazon. down, what, i think it's 3.7%. that's a big drop. the 10-year treasury yield right around 1.60, 1.59%. not much change.
10:01 am
just 10:00 eastern, and we just received the latest, the michigan consumer sentiment index. do you have a number for me? >> yes. it came in for the month of october slightly better than we thought it would be at 71.7. so we're more confident in october than we were in september. stuart: you're right, did not move the market. still as is. thanks very much, everybody. now this. leapt there be no doubt the far left runs the democrat party. they're running it into the ground. taking the poor moderates, of whom are this swing districts, they are this a party which ignores inflation, crime and all the other problems. look what happened yesterday. the left shot down the president's spending plan. we were expecting more, said one squad member. they wouldn't allow a vote on infrastructure. we were bamboozled, said another. so the president flies off to
10:02 am
europe without the legislation he hoped would have burnished his image abroad. the people who put joe biden in the white house surely didn't bargain for this. they just wanted donald trump out. what they got was a socialist, bernie sanders, running the senate budget committee, if that's believable, and the socialist squad calling the shots in the house. voters are watching, and they see what the left is doing. as we've reported, a new fox poll shows a dramatic shift in the virginia election. republican glenn youngkin now leads terry mcauliffe by 8 points, and that's ability the left -- about the left pushing race-based education. they'll keep pushing socialism because it's their religion, and they know this is probably their last chance to get it for a generation. the democrats' civil war will intensify. the republicans are standing a aside watching their opponents tear each other apart. second hour of "varney" just getting started. ♪ he can -- ♪

♪ stuart: i want to get more on this virginia governor's race. tammy bruce is with he this morning. you saw that poll. >> yeah. stuart: i sonnishing turn -- a astonishing turn around. i'm saying it's because of race-based education in virginia and elsewhere that is not popular. what do you say? >> that is correct. it's a whole lot of issues in virginia. certainly every race is a local race, but every single issue they're dealing with, issues like covid, education, violence, crime, the economy are the same issues around the country. and, of course, these stories become national. that race is being looked at, kind of like this a petrie dish. what's astonishing is how quickly these numbers have have changed. stuart: yes. >> it's not that the undecideds decided, people are switching. this is in a state that joe biden won by 10 points.
10:04 am
mcauliffe who had been governor before, so they know him. when we saw this, he was ahead, then they became even, now youngkin is +8 which is beyond the margins of error. and keep in mind, this has happened after barack obama campaigned for him, after joe biden campaigned for him. it's almost as though those campaign events switched people to youngkin -- stuart: you're right, you're right. >> it's astounding. stuart: this fox poll, we're quoting here, youngkin with an 8-point lead -- >> that's right. stuart: -- that occurred after joe biden and obama had gone to campaign for him. >> and especially some remarks that president obama made which reinforced what your point has been also in your monologue, that the left has taken hold of the democratic party. and all of these individuals are entranced by it. barack obama said especially with this particular rape at a high school that a judge found
10:05 am
did occur, and he said we're not interested in these phony culture wars. the very next day you have students walking out in defense of sex assault victims. and it's like the parents are thinking -- and they though this is not tony. who is this person saying it's phony? and then the question becomes about agenda. and if you're in touch with what's happening in real people's lives, those kinds of remarks begin to switch. mcauliffe's remark about parents shouldn't have any involvement or any business in what their children are taught in school and parents were, like, well, no. we're paying for this. this is ability our family, our -- this is about our family, our futures. and this is, i think, very important when it comes to the attitude about what these people are conveying to parents in particular. the radicalization of parents. so you see the switch, and the good news is, and i'll end with this, the mesh -- the american
10:06 am
people see we're not divided, and i think we're going to see that on tuesday's election. stuart: we shall see. you're not supposed to say this, only time will tell. it will tell. >> fascinating. stuart: thanks very much, indeed. we appreciate it always. thanks very much. now, the house delayed the vote on the infrastructure bill again. >> yeah. stuart: this is because the progress if i haves objected it to, is that correct? >> progressives put their foot down. even the president's visit to capitol hill could not persuade them. house speaker nancy pelosi, she can usually muscle the votes. she doesn't have 'em. so this rift in the party, it's so deep right now, progressives say we need to see everything because they don't trust the moderates, senators manchin and sinema. so does pelosi have to offer them something to get these bills through because we've heard from pelosi, from sanders and from the president yesterday that this is their agenda, this is their last attempt, this is their legacy.
10:07 am
stuart: there's no vote -- there was supposed to be a vote yesterday. >> they didn't have the vote for if it. stuart: they said there'll be a vote next week. >> likely, yeah. do you trust that? they keep pushing the timeline. stuart: exactly. speaker pelosi would not allow a vote unless she knows she would win it. >> december 3rd might be the latest that they can try to get this done. stuart: ah, those socialists. >> after virginia. if. stuart: let's get back to money, shall we? apple is down $4. very interesting. kenny poll carry is with us this horning. all right, kenny, those two stocks, they're down. that will erase $200 billion in value. do you think that's justified? >> nah, listen, i think it's -- like always, i think it's an overreaction, right? everyone's fed -- set up for these great earn, and the two companies that missed amazingly
10:08 am
is apple and amazon, which is a little confusing. but the fact that these two companies his miss now -- miss now creates this drama. amazon and apple, they're not going away. this little selloff today, i think, is just that, a little selloff. they bought yesterday, they were disappointed with the underwhelming results and so now they'll take some money off the table. in the short term, sure, they'll all be talking about the destruction of that wealth. i don't think it's a big deal at all. stuart: would you buy the kip in apple and -- dip in apple and amazon? >> i already own apple, i like apple. it would have to dip a lot more for he to buy it because it, you know, it's enough of a weight in my portfolio that i'm not necessarily going to do anything at the moment. but i would say to somebody if you're just starting or starting to add apple to your position, yes, on weakness i would buy apple. i'm not buying it because it's
10:09 am
the right percentage in my portfolio, so there's no reason for me to. stuart: kenny, i'm sure you saw this. this morning microsoft surpassed apple to become the most valuable company. >> right. stuart: i think it's now worth $2.5 trillion, apple 2.4 trillion. what do you make of that? >> i think it's great because i also own microsoft. [laughter] i'm as happy as you are right now. they're looking to hire some 250,000 cybersecurity experts or people, whatever -- over the next couple of years. so i think that's the way the world is going, clearly, and so i'm bullish on microsoft. and i'm bullish on apple. stuart: microsoft still has room to run in its cloud business. >> yeah. stuart: that's still a huge business with lots of opportunity, and microsoft is becoming the second player after amazon. >> right. right. so i think it's all very good news for, certainly for
10:10 am
microsoft. but i'm not even -- listen, i'm not really worried about amazon either. this little pullback is just a bunch of people stamping their feet. it'll be tine. stuart: the consensus is stock prices go a bit higher this year and come down next year. you're this line with that, real fast? >> so i do think we're going to have that little rally, i think we're probably at the highs of the year. i don't see it going that much higher, but we do think there's going to be turbulence in the first six months of next year. stuart: got it. kenny, see you again next if week. thanks. let's turn to lauren who's looking at the movers, and starbucks surely is moving. >> u.s. sales weren't a problem, they were up 22%, but they fell 7% in china. they're spending a lot of money to get workers, to keep workers, that'll squeeze their margins. and they're probably going to flex their pricing power meaning your $4 latte is most likely going to go up.
10:11 am
but that not going to be enough, those price increases that are probably coming to offset these higher costs. stuart: i see some of the cruise lines going up, royal caribbean in particular. not up that much. what are they doing? >> they just reported, and they expect to be cash flow positive by the spring. and then they're giving us, you know, how are they doing, and they are doing better than they were in 2019 by some metrics. their sailings booked for next year are at higher prices than in 2019, and that's a positive for the stock. not much but cruising slowly coming back. stuart: slowly coming back. okay. let's move on to tesla. i really want to take a look at that one. $1,091 as we speak, up another 1.3%. musk's net worth has topped $300 billion. and thousand he's coming -- now he's coming out against the democrats' proposal targeting ultra-wealthy people for extra taxes. he says he has a better plan for his money than giving it to the
10:12 am
government. what's the plan? >> he says my plan is to use the money to get humanity to mars and preserve the light of consciousness. [laughter] stuart: okay. >> he doesn't want to be one of the few targets of this idea of a billionaires' tax. of course he doesn't. and he spends his money in so many different ways, and he's so inventive, this would punish him and his genius. stuart: exactly are. >> and how he transforms society. he really is revolutionary. stuart: it's a personal opinion, but i think he'll make a lot better use of that money than the government will. that's where i'm coming from. >> just give them a chunk of out with, like -- of it with, like, no strings attached and then just leave me alone. he's doing it well. stuart: the billionaires now, next it's the millionaires, then it's the guys with a couple hundred thousand, and then you're down, you're out. you're finished because they found a way to tap wealth. >> they'd have to change the constitution, i believe, to do that -- stuart: yes.
10:13 am
>> and once you do that and you find out it works, and of course it works, you just keep doing that to pay for what you want to do. it doesn't go away. stuart: i hope confiscation of wealth is always unconstitutional. >> we'll see. billionaires tax even in the progressives' bill. stuart: you know, oil prices are up, jobs are up. alaska is doing well, so what does alaska senator dan sullivan have to complain about, if anything? [laughter] probably nothing. i'll ask him though because he's on the show in the 11:00 hour. the supply chain crisis now affecting the world series? the rat can canceled -- vatican canceled the live broadcast of the pope's meeting with president biden. we've got a live report on what exactly happened. that's in connection. ♪ take me to church -- so you can sharpen your knife. ♪ offer he that debtless

10:19 am
would actually be said between them, of course, added to that the statute thu of the conservative -- scrutiny of the conservative u.s. bishops who are really putting the pressure on both of these leaders to tow the catholic line in a very hard way, there was a lot of suspicion that the plug had been pulled for other reasons. and yet afterwards we did get images of that meeting pretty shortly after it happened. they were fed to us in two parts. we did see the arrival of president biden. that was filmed live. and then he went inside. ask you could just see how happy he was to be here. it was his fourth meeting with the holy father. they exchanged gifts. he classified the meeting as wonderful, as i said. one of the gifts that was given by the president to the pope was a challenge coin that had belonged to his late son beau. the brouhaha with the bishops has to do with their inability to square the circle -- president biden is devoutly
10:20 am
catholic himself but politically pro-choice x they worry that the pope is giving him cover. >> the struggle against abortion, legal abortion, is the preeminent purity. president biden's support for it is even worse because he's a catholic of. it's more troubling. as they say, it scandalizes people. >> reporter: each of them put out we're dealing with a climate crisis, dealing with economic recovery with the an demick and human rights -- pandemic and human rights. the u.s. bishops, stuart, are contemplating putting out some sort of statement that would call for communion to be refused to politicians who are pro-choice and that, of course, was include president biden and the speaker of the house, nancy pelosi. the pope has not been happy about this conflict within church ranks and as diplomatically as possible he has pushed back saying that astors should be pastors, not politicians.
10:21 am
and he has even pointed out he has not even once even back in the days when he was priest refused thin communion -- anyone communion. i think i've lost connection, but i send it back to you. stuart we heard everything. jonathan morris joins me here in new york city. there is some suspicion that president biden is using pope francis for political purposes, taking advantage of him to some degree. what do you say to that? >> politicians use everything for political purposes. that's what they do. i believe president biden's very happy to be in the vatican. he is a devout catholic. i think he has great esteem for pope francis. but, yeah, i i think the pope has a respondent not to be used, okay, and to make sure that the message of the church is very clear. now, he has the authority to
10:22 am
change policies. he has the authority to change canon law. in canon law, it's pretty clear that a minister giving out communion has a responsibility not to scandalize the public by somebody publicly receiving communion that is known to be against the church's teaching on core issues. so the pope could make a decision we're going to change canon law. i think that would be more intellectually honest the that's what he believes, and i think pope francis just is a little bit politically correct on these issues and not very clear. stuart: it's a fraught meeting, and that's why they don't want any coverage of it. there's no live broadcast of the meeting, no -- we don't know what they're actually talking about in the give and take. they don't want us to know. >> yeah, well, it's typical not to broadcast the actual meeting between a head of state and the pope. but they usually show the entrance, walking together, the first meeting, and usually there's some exchange of words that you can kind of pick up
10:23 am
what the general sentiment is, and they didn't give that to us this after the meeting. are strange. i'm not sure why they did that. stuart: confusing really, isn't it? it does appear to be a genuinely cordial meeting. >> pope francis, this is the way he does business, okay? he asks a lot of questions. he doesn't answer a lot of questions. i think he lives an exemplary life of humility, and that's awesome. but the pope has one major job, and that is to defend the gospel and to teach clearly what the church believes. and he prefers to do it in a little bit more, i would say, less than super clear are. stuart: i got it.

they're rationing electricity in europe and china, and the biden administration is asking opec for more oil but treating our domestic industry as you describe it. of course, that theory was predetermined. it was theater, it was scripted in advance, and it was done for -- to get all those sound bites in. it doesn't address the problem of gasoline are prices -- [inaudible] stuart: so are we going to get to $100 a barrel oil? >> well, it seems the prices are easing up just a little bit right now. i think that could happen basically if we have a cold winter. but oil is being dragged up by what's happening, with global shortage of liquified natural gas, the shortage of coal. and this is one of those times what happens with weather, but motorists are looking at $3.40
10:31 am
for gasoline. so i would just say that, you know, we do have this asset in this country called domestic oil -- stuart: exactly. why can't we go except the oil that's ours? is this just pure biden policy? we don't want you to drill for oil in america. is that the deal? >> well, i think there are a lot of, you know, people in this administration that feel that way. i think he ran saying i'm not going to ban fracking. i think he realizes that the we don't drill in this country, you know what's going to happen. we're going to go back to importing oil and be energy dependent. stuart: so we could actually get to $100 a barrel winter -- oil if it's a cold winter. >> yeah. i don't want to predict it, but certainly people are saying that, and you could see -- [inaudible] continue to be tight. and we basically are seeing underinvestment in energy resources. stuart: that would set off inflation bigtime.

future like modernizing the ports, no details, expanding rail capacity, no details. developing warehouse storage, no details. yeah, it's great that you're talking and doing this partnership to fix things in the future because 40% of the imports to this country, much of what we use on the east coast, go to the port of los angeles. stuart: that's pathetic. the problem with the ports in california is california rules on who can drive trucks at the ports, who can operate in the ports and the union. those are the problems this california. >> automation too because that's where the unions come in. because if you can use technology to unload a lot of this, it would happen a lot faster. but, yes, the union won't allow it. stuart: it's the administration's fault, flat out. i've got one more. the supply chain crisis has made this year's world series a little different. is something missing? >> so the teams are missing the world series patches that go on

risks americans face the they travel to china. morgan ortugas joins us now. morgan, does your warning apply to business executives, tourists or all travelers? >> so it really applies to all travelers. there are plenty of tourists. this was before covid went to china, european tourists that went to china unharmed. however, i do think that businesses really need to start thinking twice about sending their executives overseas or especially the you do any -- if you do any work with human rights, aid organizations. these are the types of people that the chinese communist party have taken hostage, as i call them, over the past few years. and this is sort of their, this is sort of their plan, their m.o. whenever canada arrested one of the huawei executives, you remember the story was very big, for evading sanctions, the
10:41 am
chinese right away arrested two canadian citizens that were mostly doing aid type work in china. and they said it wasn't retribution, it had nothing to do with it, but basically if you're a business person and there is a political disagreement between the united states and china, it is not out of the realm of possibility that the chinese could arbitrarily detain you, and americans really need to be aware of that when travel thing overseas, especially business people. stuart: i'm thinking of tesla which does a lot of business in china, i'm thinking disney, lots of business in china. i'm thinking apple, lots of business in china. surely you don't think that tim cook or elon musk or the ceo of disney could be held hostage? i mean, surely that's a little far february fetched -- farfetched, isn't it? >> i mean, perhaps. but if you look at the new national security law that the chinese have instituted in hong kong, i mean, hong kong is a
10:42 am
place -- i'm sure plenty of business people watching your show on a daily basis that do international business have gone in and out of hong kong. in that, quote-unquote, national security law, you can be detained for peacefully protesting for democracy. it's not a national security law. it's a crackdown on anybody who would like to support, to voice any sort of support for freedom, for democracy, for anything that the chinese committed to as it relates to hong kong. so if you're a very senior, high profile business person will that protect you a bit more? yes, but in an op-ed that i recently wrote we detailed how the chinese have used diplomacy to further their political aims. and in the recent case of what we call the two michaels from canada, they've sort of been rewarded for those tactics and that behavior. stuart: well, i used to live in hong kong -- >> great city. stuart: -- somebody on television in america, i'm thinking twice about going back there for any purpose whatsoever.

i want to raise another issue here. china says taiwan has no right, their words, no right to join the united nations. that's pretty serious stuff. >> it is, and i think secretary blinken has had strong words of support for taiwan in the past few weeks which i think is important. what the chinese are saying is basically you can't join the main u.n. body if you don't have statehood, and they're saying, you know, the taiwanese, of course, don't have statehood. but whether it is the main body or other u.n. or international organizations like the w.h.o. or other bodies, there's plenty of cases where entities like taiwan that may not have, quote-unquote, statehood do have meaningful representation at u.n.-affiliated bodies. and the chinese are trying to keep them out of -- we saw this fisthand in the trump administration -- firsthand when we were dealing with the w.h.o., china -- excuse me, taiwan was on the forefront of covid-19. they were fighting it, they were
10:44 am
getting cases right away, and so their knowledge and expertise in those early days of how to successfully fight covid-19, that information was desperately needed at the w.h.o., but the chinese blocked them at every turn. and so we need to continue to do everything we can to support taiwan. like i said, secretary blinken had meaningful words, but how are we going to back that up. which countries are going to stand with us. you saw at the u.n. in the past week israel did not sign on to -- and this is a country that is a big ally country that i'm very supportive of, but many of us were just grossly disappointed that even israel didn't sign on to a letter at the u.n. condemning the genocide against the uyghurs in china. china has enormous influence. they're going to continue to muscle all of our allies and friends over issues like taiwan, like the uyghurs, and we're going to have to not only have pretty words, we're going to have to find other coercion tactics to stand strong and fight the chinese.

stuart: the cdc has updated their guidae on the immunocompromised. finish i think are they going to need -- are they going to say you need a fourth shot? >> this is for patients who are undergoing cancer treatments or who are awaiting organ transplants or just got one. so their immune systems are weaker, and those patients might need a fourth shot. this is not a message for, you know, older americans or anybody compromised, just severely compromised. stuart: got it.

the oakland unified school district marking a january 1st deadline for student vaccinations. if children 12 and over don't get the jab, they'll be forced to switch to what's called an independent study program or disenroll from the school district completely. dr. marc siegel joins us now. i want to ask you, doctor, who should decide on a child's vaccination? the school, the state governor or the parents? >> i think it's the parents in coordination with physicians, with pediatricians, by the way. and one more thing about that oakland school district that's very disturbing is there's no test-out option, there's no option if you had covid already and you have at least immunity for three months where i might not even want to give you a shot. there's no leeway or flexibility to that. it's my way or the highway, and that's super-imposed government that there's been so much rebellion against. what if you had a home test for
10:52 am
a rapid test at home where people that weren't vaccinated could test twice a week? i've got to tell you, public health, it's probably just as good or more reliable at saying you're not carrying the virus, so i think they've got to have more flexibility here. stuart: are those tests available? a test that you can do in your own home, real fast and real cheap? is such a test available? >> really -- absolutely, yes, except for the last word, cheap. i've been urging the biden administration for weeks now, and if i'm not alone, to do an operation warp seed on testing. let's get that rapid test which is available this every home in the country, especially in poor neighborhoods where we can have that information for kids going to school. they can do it. they can use the defense production act to do it. it should have been done months ago. stuart: okay. you at this point would say yes to vaccinating children 12 and up. you're a yes on that, are you? >> i'm a yes on 12 and up because already millions of people have been vaccinated, teens, and i think that the side
10:53 am
effects have been hyped more than they are. i do think the dose should be relooked at. look, stuart, they just studied one-third the dose of pfizer from 5-11. so you mean when you hit your birthday at 12, you suddenly get three times the amount? that has to be relooked at. i think they should be giving teens lower doses, but the side effects are very, very rare. i think the 12 to 17 group should be vaccinated but, again, in coordination with parents and pediatricians. stuart: every day i make a point of checking the new caseload because i think the delta virus is in very sharp retreat. there's just about 70,000 new cases a day now in a country with 30 if million people. 330 million people. it's almost over, is it? >> it's heading towards what we call an endemic phase where it doesn't disappear, but it becomes art of daily life and becomes less of a political weapon and less saber rattling. that's where we're heading.
10:54 am
the more people they get vaccinated, the faster that occurs, and we're heading in that direction, for sure. all of this has been misrepresented. they're public stool tools we have to help you, vaccines, tests, masks, these are there to help people. stuart well said. you're in favor of vaccination but not a mandate. we always come back to this. >> you bet. stuart: yes, absolutely. vaccinate, do a booster shot but don't demand it. >> by the way, stuart, the 5 to 11-year-old is going to end up in the pediatrician's office where it belongs. i trust doctors to talk to the family and the child, not government. stuart: got it. thanks, sir, see you again soon. >> thank you, sir. stuart: the governor of florida, ron desantis, clashing with the biden administration over masks in schools. what's the latest on that? >> cut funding, about $700,000 that was supposed to go to two school districts in florida because those districts mandated
10:55 am
masks for their students. he says once those districts pull the mandate, they get their money. this is a case where the school districts are violating florida law, somewhat different from federal law. so their hands are tied. one quick comment if on swabbing kids at home, home testing? stuart: yes. >> school districts don't always accept that because you need to prove when the test was taken, how it was the taken. so i think that the issue is you have to wait 15 minutes, how do you qualify that. stuart: i understand the point. >> yeah. i tried that.

i feel like i am about to get going. 11:00 eastern time on friday october 20 ninth. the dow has turned positive but only just. show me big tech. that's where the action is. apple is down and that is shaving 35 points but cut its loss, down more than that. amazon is down 127 points, 3.7%. the treasury's 10 year bond is one.57%, that should help big tech. now this. families separated at the border will get a payout, try 450,$000 per person. $1 million or more for the whole family. that is the plan as revealed in
11:02 am
the wall street journal. in early 2018 the trump administration imposed a 0-tolerance policy at the border. adults were separated from children. the message was clear, don't come but families are suing for psychological damage. the 450,$000 per person. think this through. we will be paying people a lot of money for breaking the law. we will be paying illegals more than is paid to relatives of soldiers killed in action and lawsuits from haitians flown in willingly back to haiti or lawsuits for many migrants who didn't get instant first class medical treatment. lawyers will pile in because they get a piece of the action. the taxpayer is on the hook for the migrant mess. it is president biden who is responsible, he invited them in, pledged health and welfare services for any illegal who made it across the border, a
11:03 am
border which he opened. he should pay a political price the border nests and we should not be footing the bill. third hour of "varney and company" just getting warmed up. there is a feeling of outrage in our studio in new york and i wonder if it is true in california, outrage at paying illegals more than we pay relatives of soldiers killed in action. have at it. >> every day there seems to be something so outrageous and so offensive to the people of this country, the majority of people in this country who just want a place where they work hard,
11:04 am
look after their family, part of their community, pay their taxes and want to get something decent in return and what they are so offended by is when the taxes they pay go to people you just laid out so clearly who break the law and they wonder what is it about the people who lead this country, politicians in charge that they would do such a thing, not just waste of money. the insult, the delivered insult, the cruelty of that, as a direct result of their stupid economic policies, the inflation and the fact that small businesses are struggling to find work, all the struggles people have caused by politicians. they are giving money, to people who break the law, it is just unfathomably cruel actually. stuart: 450,$000 per person. man and wife, mom and dad, two kids, that is $2 million,
11:05 am
$2 million, what are democrats going to think of this. what will working families think of this? $2 million? just out of the blue. and and it is out of the question. >> a good point, nevermind anyone else, just the democrats, imagine if you are democrat looking at the shambles in congress when they can't get through the legislation they say is so important and every single day something is chopped out of that legislation. if you are democrat you want that and you campaign for that, they are chopping out family leave and extra things for medicare, we don't have the money, we can't afford it, and at the same time they find the money for this.
11:06 am
stuart: the outrage is palpable in california and new york. the biden team is far left, that is what i think and so is the californian team. do you think the administration in california are teaming up to turn the entire country left word? it looks like it. >> they brag that california is at the heart of politics, you have nancy pelosi driving it all in congress. kamala harris in the white house with president biden, gavin newsom going on about it the whole time, california's arrive at the heart of everything and you look at what is coming out of california, a model for the nation. if that is true, what a horrendous future, one place after another, completely ruined by their policies these people say why are they doing this? an interesting phrase was used by michael shellinberger, he

wrote why progressives ruin cities and he is on my podcast yesterday. really interesting phrase about why the democrats are so disastrous when they claim compassion, they want to help people, he called it pathological altruism. they want to be seen as kind and caring and compassionate in the process they hurt the exact people they claim to speak for. stuart: i like that. i will have him on my show if i can get hold of him. we will be watching you on the next revolution sunday night on fox. todd pyro is back with us, glutton for punishment will stay for the entire hour. you interviewed caitlin jenner on your early show on fox. what did she say about governor newsom. >> with sepals and touched upon.

really worried about next year and their party has been taken over by the left and you have new jersey people were presented by people not doing anything about a tax burden in new jersey. >> very clear the retirements you see in wisconsin or yarmouth and kentucky, they are feeling uncomfortable going into next election. the party in power, democrats start retiring and as the speaker and the president continue to push this massive spending and tax increase bill through congress, the reconciliation bill and infrastructure bill, it is going to make it tougher for moderate democrats to say they are on the side of suburban voters and economically conservative voters. stuart: 60% of republicans plan

killing it for a while. we are now underwater. there was the great depression, the great recession and now the great resignation. people at the lower end of pay scales, the cost of leaving is not very great because if it doesn't work out there is another place that will take them immediately. the great resignation is taking place in all lower and oilfield and oil patch, might be interesting to note the lower paid hard-working guys can't get them to go into the oil fields in west texas and the cost of leaving if you make 40 grand a year's you make another job 40 grand and if that doesn't work out go to another one. i asked somebody why would you do that? because i can. they spent a year collecting money.

11:33 am
>> 100%. that is not a good expression. you are squarely on. my pricing is chain supply issues, all the costs going up, 150 ships in the sea waiting to bring a self we can't get, supply and demand so pricing is going up. our suppliers can't get truckers or drivers, we use to get 5 deliveries a weekend are down to three. two of those, can't get a guy behind the wheel to drive a truck now. it stems from i firmly believe that the lower end of this scale, people spend one more your banking money, with no place to spend it. stuart: there's $2 trillion in bank accounts in the early part of this year.
11:34 am
bank accounts are flooded with money and you are right, that is the cushion people used to flit around in the workforce. it is wonderful to be a worker, go wherever you please. >> what is my risk profile if i make 40,$000 a year and quit and join another job and it doesn't work? my risk profile is 0 or none, there's another 40,$000 job that will take me. unless i get the one i like or don't like, it comes from not having a relationship with your labor force. we have 0 staffing problem, with a lot of people who are probably watching. the reason we have 0 is we always had a relationship with people, there was always interaction. we weren't the boston they were the worker. we were all together with a common purpose and that was to

we have 20 executive actions from the biden administration, 20 just focused on shutting down the economy of the state of alaska. it is unprecedented in terms of the anti-alaska agenda which covers so many sectors but it is definitely covering the energy sector where they are encouraging financers, banks not to invest in america's arctic where they are shutting down the ability to actually lease from oil and gas in federal lands and pipelines so we see a price spike certainly but that certain working families, there's a big attack on the alaska economy from the white house and i'm fighting every day to fight back against it. stuart: let me ask about this was the alaska railroad rescinded its employee vaccine mandate just days after announcing it.
11:43 am
is that a retreat from the vaccine mandate and do you approve of it? >> absolutely i do. i approve of it, i support it and i encourage other business leaders in alaska and america to not go forward with what is an unprecedented and unconstitutional edict from this president. this is never been done before at the level of the president without any authorization from congress and it is not about getting vaccines. it's not whether you should get vaccinated. i'm vaccinated, i encourage others to get vaccinated in consultation with their doctor. it is the president's overreach and unconstitutional action. is the key thing. think about this. during the covid pandemic, a key principle of democrats and republicans in the trump administration is businesses can get covid relief if they kept their workers and kept people working, that was the principal we worked under last year. president biden is taking a sledgehammer to that principle
11:44 am
and saying to american employers you have to fire your employees right before christmas if you don't listen to any act from the president? every business leader should hold off, the litigation is going to happen. what the alaska railroad is doing is the right thing for their employees. stuart: you do have a lot to complain about and glad you saved it for this show. thank you, senator, thanks for being with us. todd is still with us and he is going to sort out this merriam-webster addition to the dictionary of 455 new words. >> you see tbh which means to be honest. i sliced an interview because i use tbh to be honest about 40 times. not abc. i am at fox was a digital highlights include digital

11:53 am
>> it would be while. you can get both. >> i won't say the exact phrase but the cheers will be about players named brandon and in reality i'm not saying it. i will talk about it later. the crowd reaction will be off the hook. i don't think the media will be happy about it. if they are going to downplay it. stuart: why am i so out of touch. i didn't know about macho man and now i don't know what you are talking about. neil: are not on social media. that is one reason. i give you a pass on the costume. it is only the top up. >> that is wrong. >> we have gone off the rails. we went getting out of hand. i will get back on the rails with this. dave writes, what is with this role tape stuff? get into the twentieth century.

11:59 am
stuart: lauren? >> i said 3. stuart: i said the correct answer, which is back rub. it's the oddest of all names, that's why i picked it, because the guys who founded google are rather odd. they came up with the name in 1996. they decided on back rub are because it -- in 1997 it was named google because of a spelling error. it was meant to be googal, but when checking it, the domain was taken, a colleague accidentally searched on google. larry page liked it much better, and they stuck with google so now you know. >> alphabet. stuart: yeah, they changed it knockout -- [laughter] >> backrub, a horrible choice especially for the later years when it comes to law --
