our viewers. here we go. 3505. the previous ending high. fifteen years. 3,505. the number to beat. @%ese numbers are still coming. with an 3502. ashley: on the edge. liz: looking pretty good. but as far as the rest of the market, the dow jones industrials seen a gain. we add the russell 2010 and other high, up nearly 1% to. ashley: let's take a look at your front page headlines. taking over the london interbank of the -- otherwise known as libor run by the british bankers' association. it was hit by a global rigging scandal. liz: tesla gets the nod to replace oracle and the nasdaq 100 as they move to the new york
stock exchange. it will happen ahead of the bell. moving higher. liz: moving higher on speculations that the billionaire investor will make a big investment writing to clients asking them to commit a billion dollars to two new funds to invest in a major u.s. company. liz: people think it is fedex. an economist and former finance minister was named to egyptian interim prime minister. well an opposition leader will assume the vice-president see. pledging $5 billion in age -- eight. the united emirates offered 3 billion. ashley: barnes and noble is at a turning point. resigned from his post in the company's board. the resignation came shortly after the company's earnings mess and the decision to exit the tablet market. "after the bell" starts right now. ♪
liz: yes, it looks like a 13-year high for the nasdaq. let's get to today's action. managing director is telling investors to brace for more volatility. in the pits of the cme. look, i could start with him, but both of you can weigh in. the only volatility is to the upside. liz: over the last for five sessions that has been the case, but if you look back from the beginning of the second quarter through to today's close, the intraday swings in the market, until recently they have been to the plus side. them into cited. the second quarter was a horizontal move from the beginning to the end. the beginning driven by earnings , positive employment numbers, strength in housing and autos. we are seeing that leg up that you mentioned before i came on. that is very susceptible. lots of headline risk out there.
ashley: the fed minutes out. the last three times the market has sold off. what are you expecting? >> more intraday volatility, dislike the other guest said. right now the rate does seem to be to the upside. however, a lot of people are on the sidelines. the market did correct itself. we do know we're coming up to a big resistance. and most traders are meaningfully higher than that. we need to see compelling evidence of the earnings reports . liz: here we are above it. you look at that. i'm just wondering what you said is very true. good news is finally being taken as good news until it is and and people realized, the better this economy gets the sooner we might see tapering which should not be -- it should not be the worst thing in the world certainly.
>> actually, from a purely academic standpoint it is actually very good news to hear such free-flowing discussion about tampering because it is a clear indication that the economy has caught the sustainable traction that we all altman the want. i mean, any of us really want to have to depend on liquidity that is being increased by the federal reserve for the market to find buoyancy. we want organic growth, topline and bottom line, revenue growth, real growth in the economy. as long as we see more of that the greater the likelihood is that we see tapering. ashley: let me follow up on that. with rising rates, as we have seen what the talk from the fed easing its monetary policy, how does that affect your investment strategy? >> basically, we are still by any historical standard had very, very, very inexpensive rates. even though just recently cents the last two weeks we have seen a fairly sharp move.
we have over the last two sessions seem moderation. it is not a one directional trade. we probably have seen the lows for the time being. that said, even a minor adjustment in rates moving higher should not provide the headwind that many people i anticipating it will for equity markets. equity markets can move up, even in an environment where interest rates are climbing higher. we have seen this repeatedly going back to 1982. several cycles of low rates moving higher. that has not been said. if you continue to see interest rates rise, that is probably not going to be terrible for the rate of inflation that is occurring. it will probably be very therapeutic. liz: seeing inflation. certainly in china we get these numbers that like other than expected.
just in the last hour or he was saying avoid brazil because they used to export to china. now it's not such a great market how -- how does that piece of the puzzle fit into the u.s. economy? >> that's a big question because we all worry about china. they came out hotter than expected. a little bit softer than expected, but we're more worried about brazil, mexico, korea, the emerging markets. our dollar going higher will really hurt which might be the missing puzzle right now that will enhance its market. i am constructively bullish. however, the emerging markets are much bigger than most of us are giving it credit for right now. ashley: all right. where did you like -- what do you like in particular? either any particular that you like? well, i have been harping on these for quite some time, as you well know.
housing, financials, autos, all three of them have been real stalwarts, real bowles in this move. they have outperformed the broader indexes and are likely to continue in spite of the fact that we will see the shift hire. all of them speak to a strengthening domestic economy that is really the flagship of the global gdp story. the u.s. consumer continues to grow and confidence in demand. is driving these three sectors and should continue to do so. liz: all of these charts look exactly the same college is a little bit of jagged edge. again, the big question now becomes where is there a cheaper opportunity and is it emerging markets? to weirdo we? everyone has an opinion. >> emerging markets clearly represent a very risk on profile for investors at this stage of time. part of that is because of the concern over global demand, global natural resource demand,
cheap manufacturing demand. you mentioned brazil. that is a classic case in point. the other guest mention several other emerging market economies that are heavily dependent upon the global demand scenario, and it is, quite frankly, not robust around the world. as a direct result, the u.s. economy, which is maintaining some sort of competitive advantage is a direct result of the weaker dollar visa the quantitative easing. they're is a window on that, and i completely agree with the other guests in that the stronger the dollar gets the less competitive advantage we have in terms of manufacturing and exporting, so we need to kind of capitalize on that. liz: good to see you both. we will check back in with you in just a few moments. again, it looks like a win, a 13-year when for the nasdaq. ashley: it hung in there. internet stocks came on a tear soaring to new highs. will the upswing continue or has the rally run its course?
we have your top plays next in our second half set. liz: the market seems to think that fed tapering will begin this year. are they right, especially considering what i just talked to our guests about in a better economic data. who better to ask that someone who sat inside that decision room for more than 20 years. former fed president of minneapolis joining us in a fox business exclusive. and we want to hear from you. yesterday after the bell barnes and noble ceo resigned as the company continued to struggle. will the even exist five years from now? blog don to facebook and we will read your answers later. ♪ [ male announcer] surprise -- you're having triplets.

liz: the website that gives you restaurant reviews is launching a brand new platform, and the news is boosting stock today. back to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange for details. >> reporter: like this hockney's more of a boost. up 97% this year, and yet today once again hitting a new 52-week high on the news that not only will you be able to review restaurants, but also now you
can order from your favorite restaurant locally. it is a big deal. you go one yelp, look up your favorite restaurant, order an item, and that is what they are breaking into. they can deliver dry cleaning. they're working with a local business and bringing it to you, so this is a new yelp platform, and this is the first step in their plan. obviously a big deal. the stock is and how a new high. liz: thank you very much. ashley: s&p futures closing or very shortly. let's head back to the pits of the cme. are they telling us? >> they're telling us that we are not complacent, not oblivious to the market risk, to the problems of the world. what they're saying is that the market is doing a fantastic, a splendid job at just compartmentalizing every issue and not making of reissue out to be some type of disaster, some type of macro catastrophe that just takes 100 points off the
dow and s&p 500. that said, we are concerned with tomorrow and earnings season, but other than that it does go painfully hire. people are on the sidelines and cautiously optimistic. liz: will take that. ashley: we will, indeed. thank you. internet stocks seeing a good first half of the year. hitting an all-time high this may and amazon reaching a peak. can we expect this run-up to continue in the second half of the year? liz: joining us now with his second half set up for the internet sector, managing director and analyst for rbc capital markets. we have started each one of these segments by looking back to the first half and seeing how these names have done and then comparing it to how you believe that it will do. is that an appropriate question, delineating the middle of the year? >> oh, i get your point. a little bit of arbitrariness behind that. we have seen for the most part
out of the internet sector, a large cap internet sector, for the most part very good stock performance year today, one that has been better than that of the market as a whole. a lot of these stocks are not meeting against our price targets. we still like some of these assets. liz: what is it about them? there are many different ways of looking at these, spider technology, or you can look at internet and see how they do. is it fair to makes up the amazon of the world with technology stocks like intel? >> there are some very different elements to these models. on-line advertising, on-line retail, online travel, almost the consumer oriented. almost all of them are consumer-oriented, so plan on consumer discretionary and also off of the big secular shift of almost all things online, and a couple of these companies have specific drivers of of mobile, a new push into groceries, so there are some companies specific factors that make them
hard to compare. liz: let's get to your picks. priceline, a stock that has already been on a tear up 42% year-to-date. you think is still has room to grow? >> you're right. the stock has had a big run-up. we were very enthusiastic about the stock at the beginning of the year. that is yes and has to taper off . we're close to an all-time high. last reached in 99, 2000. has been a long round trip for this name, but the execution has been very good, i'd say, over the last five to seven years. they account for 10 percent of global hotel sold worldwide. we think that market share can continue to grow. high-margin -- business generates a lot of cash. we continue to like this. liz: it sounds like you pay to their real names in each area. that would mean we need to get to amazon because it has been
the stalwart and the shining star in the business that it does, and now they are expanding into other things that have caught your eye. already about 32 percent of the past year. on top of that, it has a price-to-earnings ratio that seems rich. >> you're absolutely right. and you set it up correctly. priceline, the global on-line travel. plus amazon is surprising people, including myself and some of these new initiatives that have really taken hold. amazon web services, kindle devices. those are probably at the top. also advertising revenue. that multiple is extremely high, requires very high growth assumptions. we think this is actually the most attractive stock from a pure growth perspective. greater valuation risk. liz: and some of the smartest people in the room. they just for the debt deal with
viacom. things like that, the amazon prime relationship. they are doing things that broaden their business in ways that seem logical. >> the only risk that is implied in that statement is maybe they're spreading themselves too thin. i worry about that as somebody who -- my focus on that as a risk with the stock, but so far they have shown an uncanny ability to get about 80 percent of their investments right. ashley: interesting. you like netflix. that is up over 160% year-to-date. is it too late to get in on this? >> i don't think it is too late, but it is further down the list. if you want to get into the more controversial names, facebook, netflix, i think there reached what i would call a state philosophy. there are now more subscribers to more entertainment video subscribers than any other service in the u.s. they have surpassed hbo.
with that has come at the margin greater leverage with the studios, so they are able to sign and announce these deals with cbs, pbs, dreamworks, fox. and they become one of the default video options for 30 million consumers, and we think that number in the u.s. itself will reach 40 million within two years. liz: impressive. obviously capital markets analyst. thank you for joining us. >> thank you for having me. liz: one of the best, if not the best. therefore we will put him. check that out. timing the tapir. it is a huge dilemma for fed chairman ben bernanke and a massive headache for the market. former federal reserve and cider, a former president of the minneapolis fed will give us his unique insight. he has been behind closed doors on these decisions and will tell us what he thinks the fed may be signing next. a fox business exclusive.

percentage point. ashley: legged you. liz: right under the line. ashley: you even waited. liz: took a breath. ashley: a new report showing that chinese buyers are pouring into the u.s. housing market, probably to get away from the awful air pollution and spending lots of money on expensive homes liz: they want to breathe, but where are they flocking to and how much are they spending? we are joined with the details. they are sort of the new russians. >> and they're paying top dollar. we're going to show basically where they're buying, california, nevada, arizona, texas, north carolina, new york, if you have a buyer from india, china, canada, the u.k., hold on because china is paying top dollar. 70 percent of the deals are in cash. $425,000 is what their forking over. indian buyers are paying 300,000, uk, 250,000.
that figure is for all international buyers. the mean for just u.s. buyers is 180,000. so these guys are paying big money, top dollar, and they are buying in suburban areas that people coming in from china, buying in resort areas, places like arizona and nevada, florida, california. one striking thing is there looking for mostly better schools, more available jobs. ashley: buying these homes and moving in, not just as investments. >> that's right. what is interesting is that for what is going on in california, more than half of the foreign buyers are coming from china and they're coming in, get this, using an immigration, government immigration program where you get a fast track to a green card if you invest 500,000 more in a proper your business. so that's what they're doing, using that green card program to do two things, get it faster and by all. liz: unbelievable.

the highest level since october of 2000. industrials and materials were today's top performing sectors. confidence among u.s. small businesses dipping in june after hitting a one-year high in may. the national federation of independent businesses optimism index dropping to 93.5 from 94.4 the previous month. the u.s. dollar index hitting a three-year high on expectations, that, yes, the fed will scale back its bond buying program as early as september. the euro by the way falling to its lowest level in nearly three months versus the green back, hitting a intraday low of 1.27. liz: the federal reserve making it clear it is willing and ready to start tapering the bond-buying program when appropriate and that may very well be later this year. ashley: may be. with unemployment still high and economic growth weak an tepid, is the fed making the right move and can it exit the program gracefully or will it be as former fed chairman greenspan put it, messy.
liz: he has got nerve. ashley: gary stearn, former president of the federal reserve bank of minneapolis. mr. greenspan has other issues he could discuss as well. thank you so much for being here, gary. you had a very unique perspective on all of this. i'm sure you wonder what is going on in there as well. has ben bernanke, before we get, to, you know, can they get out of it gracefully has mr. bernanke done everything he could and do you generally agree with everything he has done? >> i think the fed has againly been heroic throughout this because the economy and markets faced major challenges and i think the fed has done a lot to try to alleviate that. hopefully they have been wise as well. these are uncharted waters in many ways, not the kind of thing that central banks typically faced. so i think we have to still keep our fingers crossed a bit and
hope that, what we experienced going forward turns out to be positive. i'm reasonably confident but, the jury is still out as they say. liz: from your experience, having been behind closed doors, with the federal reserve of your era, making those decisions, how do things look? i know it is hard because you faced different challenges back when you were there but now everybody's worried about when the tapering will begin but maybe's precisely how he wanted it? to float it well in advance and people absorbed it and bake the news in. >> i think that's right. i think the fed certainly prefers not to surprise market participants. that means you have to start talking about things well in advance of taking action. i don't think there is any question about that. even in more normal times you would want to do that. i think in that sense, they were wise to begin the discussion especially because, if you look at the tenor of the economic news that has become available over the past 12 months, plus or
minus, it is generally been on the somewhat more positive side than expected. it hasn't been grossly more positive than expected but, mildly more positive and in a consistent way. so i think the fed reading the tea leaves and probably looking at improved outlook, decided to begin the discussion. ashley: is it too early though, gary? because some people say it is. the fed likes to meet its targets and with regard to unemployment at 6.5% we're a long way from that level. so, are we being a little premature? >> we, you know, that remains to be seen in two senses. one is of course, i think the fed has been careful to emphasize that this is all conditional. conditional on incoming information. and so if the news continues to be on the positive side, then their timing is going to look pretty good. but i think we shouldn't exaggerate the fed's influence either. after all we have a huge, complex, sophisticated economy. the fed doesn't have to get it
precisely correct. they have to get it approximately correct, avoided big errors. liz: what was it like sitting in on big decision meetings? what was the most dramatic moment when you were at the fed? >> well, you know there were several. obviously -- liz: were you there for long-term capital management and that issue? >> i was there for long-term capital management. liz: that was a fund for those of you don't remember that blew up and nearly took down for the russian ruble. >> i was there for the stock market crash of '87. i was there for the end of the technology price bubble but nothing really rivaled the most recent financial crisis because when things started to unravel in 2008 they really unraveled very, very quickly and it was a global phenomenon. so the risks were enormous. ashley: would you have wanted to be part of these most recent discussions? or are you happy you're out of it? >> i'm happy other have the responsibility. i certainly loved my years at
the federal reserve but the responsibility is now somebody else's and that's fine. liz: speaking of somebody else who takes over for ben bernanke? there's been a flury of activity when it comes to talking about, first it was janelle yellin and then larry -- janet yellen, then larry summers. republicans are saying no way we would ever consider larry summers. one name not on there, for example, alan, who is over at princeton. >> alan blinder. liz: alan blinder there are other names as possibilities. who is your best guess? >> i think there is at least two criteria. you want somebody capable, qualified and well-prepared and secondly you want somebody who can get confirmed which is not necessarily easy. ashley: good point. >> i think several people that would pass both of those that would pass those tests those hurdles. liz: such as? >> janet yellen is one. alan blinder, don kohn, alan
ferguson. all of those people have been confirmed in the past, sometimes multiple times. i think not only are they capable but there is reason to believe they would pass that second hurdle. the question is, who is the president comfortable with? what do his advisors think, et cetera. liz: will you come back? >> sure. liz: love your ear perspective. thank you so much, gary stern. ashley: computer hacking, a modern day plague sweeping through corporate america. we'll tell you about some explosive testimony on capitol hill about hacking and how much it is costing u.s. companies. liz: and star power. we've got an exclusive first look at not just the new line of rhianna branded lipstick that will hit the stores, newer, newer line that will hit the stores this fall. estee lauder president john dempsey joining us for a fox business exclusive, how he turned zero marketing dollars into the fastest sellout after single lipstick in history. ♪
