As they continue to battle a barrage of rockets fired by a moss from Gaza and Congress was first notified of the potential sale on May 5th. Um, and it was proposed almost a week before Ahmad's began firing rockets into Israel. Reportedly killing well, at least 10 is really so far. I'm sure that number has gone up considerably. People say why are we funding Israel? You're hearing that and I'll tell you one thing. You know who's funding Hamas? Iran? Oh, yes. And we gave money. We're giving money. Now we stopped it. Under the Trump administration. He ended all aid to Iran because Iran sponsors terrorist organizations and so he stopped giving money to him. And then when Biden came into office. He wanted to renew the agreement we had with Iran and thus we've been dumping money on Iran, which turns around and gives the money to a mosque. Who in turn by weapons. So basically, Ironically, we are Funding weapons or we're providing weapons for the Israelis. But we're providing money for weapons to Iran, which gives them to Hamas inadvertently. You're absolutely right in Iran can't stand that Arab nations. They're starting to recognize Israel and the relations are starting to improve. They don't like that. So what did they do? They find an organization, a terrorist group like Hamas. Who's in control of gods, and they say we will fund your efforts to destroy Israel, and we, as long as you continue to fight against the state of Israel will continue to fund you. And that's exactly what you're seeing here. Jack and I don't see you know how they can actually improve this now. Fighting may stop in in in the area, but for as far as the cease fire, but it's not going to do anything and by the way Just because they you know, Israel has been, you know, retaliating in the way they have. They're not advancing forward on anything as far as what they're trying to achieve here, which is A lot of us still don't know. But the mission at hand. I don't think they're going to make any move any headway forward with it? No. And it Z, former secretary of State My compares slam the administration's actions. Leading up to this chaos and Criticizing their move to reestablish the Iran deal, he said. The Biden administration has distanced itself from Israel by attempting to revive the Fail of Iran deal siding with the Ayatollahs over our ally. And America has to be strong and defend its allies without hesitation. This again from Pompeo, and he is absolutely right. And the strongest ally we have in the country and definitely in the Middle East is Israel. And these terrorists they can get to Israel right now, And eventually, they're gonna be trying to get to us.

What's Behind the Rise of the Pandemic's Bull Market?
"Year ago today. Us stocks bottomed out but since that pandemic plunged something almost unimaginable happened. Wall street quickly shifted from bear to bull market setting new records along the way under center for serie. We wanted to take a look back to see how we got here and discuss where we might be headed next to do that. I'm joined by the wsj's caitlyn mccabe. She's on the market speed and is well equipped to explain all of this caitlyn. Good morning hi. Thank you so much for having me. So caitlin at the beginning of the pandemic we saw three major stock indexes plummet the s. and p. five hundred fell by thirty four percent in just twenty three trading days now fast forward all three have rebounded strongly. The dow is up around thirty three thousand mark so big picture. What played into this turnaround. Yeah so the. It was an exceptionally fast turnaround. We saw this incredibly steep and quick plunge and then it took just one hundred twenty six trading days to recover back to the february nineteenth closing level where we were before the sell off. That happened coinciding with the covid. Nineteen pandemic so. It was one of the fastest recoveries on record after such a steep plunge and i mean really the the climb back started with investors piling back into growth and tech stocks and that's carried so much of the market upward four the last year since you mentioned tech stocks. It's important to stress. These gains have not been seen across all sectors. Exactly so you know after. We reached this bottom on march. Twenty third twenty twenty. It became pretty clear pretty quickly. That investors were concentrating their money in growth stocks and big tech stocks. And so you saw big gains right off. The bat in what traders liked to call the fang stocks and so that stands for facebook apple amazon netflix in google's parent alphabet which spells out the acronym fang and these companies are so large and they comprise so much of the snp that was helping push the s. and p. five hundred up but you weren't just seeing growth and big tech. You're seeing of course you know Traders really interested in in companies like tesla. You're seeing zoom. You are seeing just all of these growth in tech companies Rising because i mean one simple explanation for it is that they were the companies that were standing to benefit the most from the pandemic shopping online. You had people using cloud computing and you know video messaging software and things like that and so that was really driving the market upward. You know of course. There is from time to time rotations into cyclical stocks and more of your industrials and energy and banks. But it really was for so much of twenty twenty just the growth in tech leading s ahead and then caitlyn more recently. We've seen a stall in us stocks. The nasdaq briefly went into correction territory earlier. This month last week. All three major indexes lost ground. What's going on here. So since the start of the year. We've seen this really steep and swift move up in bonney olds and that's had a ripple effect across the market so the short version is basically that the economy is recovering people are getting vaccinated and investors are really looking ahead to summer or fall where things might be returning back to normal and so of course there have been some concerns of inflation creeping into the market and so that's driven bond yields up which has an impact on assets across the market and so investors have been dumping shares of tech companies Basically because you know higher yields can mean higher borrowing costs for for businesses and higher yields also make investors reevaluate. How much they're willing to pay for. Future earnings and because significant earnings for tech stocks are expected to come in the future. It makes investors basically question how much they're willing to pay for those earnings. So you're seeing investors pullback from tech. You're seeing quite an uptick in energy and banks and and other cyclical stocks so. It's going to be really interesting to see how long lasting trend s and finally kaylin you talk to traders and analysts as a markets reporter. What's peaking your interest for the future. I think we're in this really interesting period in markets. Where right now so much of what's happening in the growth versus value trade is very fundamentals based and people are trying to evaluate the impact that yield will have on tech stocks like i mentioned in growth companies and what that will mean for banks and energy companies and everything that we've talked about so far but then you have this whole other segment of the market that is less connected to fundamentals right now. You know we saw the massive rise in the minimum stocks earlier. This year the game stops the amc's of the world you know we have this ongoing specs craze Cryptocurrency at that market is incredibly interesting. It's just gonna be really interesting because you have these two kind of branches of the markets that are going on right now. Where there's just this euphoria in some segments and then everyone is also trying to drill down this value versus tech trade. So i'm just going to be really interested to see what happens especially in these other segments of the market as we see more interest among retail traders as we see the spac craze probably only going to continue to grow and see what effect that has on the broader market

Using Amazon Fulfillment to Grow Your eCommerce Business with Michael Begg
"A lot of people who listen to the show are small business owners. Many are Web savvy perhaps maybe even web developers so they can probably build their own e commerce. I'm guessing using commerce. That's generally popular platform. I mean it's like a quarter of e commerce sites commerce so If they are you know if we have a small business owner who wants to get into kind of selling stuff online Maybe their own products. Maybe not right because you demonstrated that it doesn't necessarily have to be your own products. What are some of the things that they should think about. As far as research goes As far as like researching what products they want to sell or you know just kind of understanding how the amazon platform works. Let's let's go with kind of how the amazon platform works rate We had previous upset about drop shipping talked about kind of researching products. But if you have tips you know that was two years ago now and not talk here and there. I know a lot of things have changed. I mean the amazon platform is pretty straightforward. Obviously the consumer customer side is a lot better build out than the actual seller side. You know there's a lot of pain points on the seller side. There's a lot of people get frustrated with amazon. Just part of the process amazon is bill to serve their customers not their sellers. Which is its own thing But anyway you sign up with a professional account cost about forty dollars a month from there you upload your listings you need to have. Upc bar codes for your products. Need to purchase those from a gs. One those are about ten acts like three hundred dollars so it's not that crazy from there you can list your products on the platform and amazon will pretty much handle the entire fulfilment side of the sales if you want to again. If you don't have your own warehouse you fulfillment team or you don't wanna be packaging hundred dollars a day to go ship out yourself amazon's great for that you know using amazon. Fbi you can send all your inventory right in. They'll distribute it across the country closest to the consumers that are gonna probably repurchasing your products and then as the orders come in. They'll handle the shipping mail. The customer service in any issues on that end so super helpful. If you are small business any don't have the capabilities to really deal with the fulfillment and customer service aspects. Yourself if you do. I mean that's great. You don't need to use fbi also florida's directly from your warehouse but fbi deafening. Get you a little more visibility on the platform definitely helps you stand out more. Get the prime badge which is another very big selling point when consumers are shopping on the platform and bats more or less the basic steward. I mean there's a lot of other a specific niche things that we could talk about. That can help you sell more. But just getting set up on the platform is pretty straightforward and following those processes. You can pretty much do it on yourself on your own. Yeah for sure. So the kind of use cases. I'm thinking through right. Now is maybe we have like a maker who's creating their own stuff Or we have somebody who's may be looking into drop shipping or or Retail arbitrage i. Okay somebody who's selling other people's products and it seems like i if i'm making something i can. I can basically send it to amazon for them to fulfil or i assume if i'm doing some If i'm buying someone else's product in bulk i can have them send it directly to amazon is i. Is that how it goes or do i need to do. I need to me then. Intended to amazon. Yeah i mean most of the time we're going to have it sent to yourself or you're going to be seeing yourself in person and then you're going to be sending it to amazon. That's probably about ninety percent. There are some people that will send it directly amazon for you but it's a little bit more difficult to find. I see it really doesn't matter what size business you are having employees. There's there's so much potential. Here on the platform declined. That was literally a one person operation to start with. It started working with us a couple years ago. She was doing about fifteen twenty thousand dollars a month in sales. And you know two years later. She's doing three hundred and fifty thousand dollars a month in sales and now she's actually being able to build a team i mean she's she's making significant revenue. She has a significant team to help her now. And that's just one example of how quickly you can grow on the platform. You know how much you can scale a business. Just through the amazon sales channel. Yeah that's great until and this is Kind of reason we're talking about. This is because as a freelancer as a small business owner. You worry about when you're one big client says we don't need you anymore right like we wanted. Diversify our income and so Selling through amazon is a good way. Now i suspect of the listeners. Like me Do more kind of digital products. You mentioned that. You started selling books on kindle. I wanna ask you about that in the members only show sure But in general amazon. We're talking mostly about physical products. Here right yeah. For the most part the kindle side is just one piece of amazon there's a royalty based business so you create a digital content. And you're making money forever. I mean books. I published eight years ago or still right review royalties every month. So yeah that's just one way to do it but You know physical product businesses are also pretty easy to build platform in not that challenging to do on. It's not a fulltime job. Do it on your own if you have a few products that you're selling so and that's fantastic because the fulfilment is the hardest part. I don't have room in my house to keep inventory right. I've got two kids now. So i don't know that they're toys r. Where my inventory would be Now now the other part of this is that you your personal path has led you to creating amc advisers and you have you say you're running a remote team of thirty right yes. So let's let's talk about kind of how you built that team and then how you moved to remote right as right now. Listeners can see this. Of course. But i'm looking at you in an office with multiple desk but you're by yourself. I assume because we're recording this in the midst of a pandemic yes that would be a good assumption. Actually kind of a funny process that we went through. I mean it started with Definitely working remotely and then coming into his office and now now we're remote again because of the pandemic. Yeah i mean as a business. We started growing. It was myself into other partners in the agency star way than we were handling a lot of things ourselves. We were able to get to about forty thousand dollars a month and grabbing you with us stanley which was nice. I mean that was like ninety percent margin so that was a nice little payday. Then we realized if we wanted to actually take you beyond this build. Something that had some equity value or or something that could provide an exit in the future We really need to build a business. Not just be doing freelance work again. If you're relying on a lot of clients a couple of big clients that are really bringing in revenue. We kind of were It's there's a lot of risk. Hang your business model that way. Just put it that way so we realized that we had to start scaling. We started using. Birds will assistance in the philippines So that was one aspect of our remote worth team. Obviously there's definitely challenges with that time zone. Being one of the big ones we as an agency. We need to respond to clients quickly. We need to provide good customer service in dealing with time zone. Differences created a lot of issues around that sometimes so we continue to grow and i actually came to guadalajara. Was where my girlfriend. Why i'm still here And as we continue to grow we need more people so we started hiring client facing people remotely in the us and content team people here in mexico so doing graphic design content writing Administrative stuff things like that now actually started hiring client facing people here in mexico as well so it's just been a process of scaling like that. Obviously march twenty twenty hits in that kind of all changes The other pandemic comes in. Now everyone's working remotely in mexico now. We have eighteen people completely remote and it was. It's obviously a big change. I mean i know it affects people differently By we had a great offer community prior to the pandemic it was great like how people we worked with really enjoyed. And now i know a lot of people are missing. Adding that interaction with everyone impervious ended up the same talking through slack for example. But it's one of the challenges that that most companies are facing.

How to Fill a Few Seats At The Cinema? Rent Them to Gamers
"March in the early throes of the coronavirus pandemic. We brought you a story about how a devastated movie theater industry found a glimmer of hope by turning to that old american classic the drive in movie theater that hope was short. Lived though as many drive ins were forced to close because of stay at home orders in some cities and cold weather and others. But now there's another small light at the end of the tunnel for an industry. That's been gutted by the pandemic this time. The story starts in south korea with movie theaters around the country closed or operating at a limited capacity and film releases largely on hold due to covid south korea's largest cinema chain. Cg v had a bright idea. the company started renting out. It's largely empty theaters to folks who might enjoy the use of a big screen and surround sound. You know video gamers gamers. Pay up to a hundred and thirty five. Us dollars to rent out a theater. Video games consoles and controllers not included and renters. Told the bbc that gaming in theaters pretty cool the sound quality is top notch and the graphics are almost lifelike turns out a. Us theater chain was already on the gaming in the theater trend after a gutting year for the cinema industry most us movie theaters shut down in march early on in the covid. Nineteen pandemic and while some chains opted to carefully reopen some locations. Last summer those were shuttered again. In the fall when cases spite put simply putting up two hundred people in a room while they sit on coke munch on popcorn at the screen. Well you know. It's just not safe so malka theaters which operates thirty-six cinemas in the southern. Us rolled out. Its malko select gaming at several locations. Last november up to twenty gamers can book a theater for one hundred and fifty dollars in play until they drop or until three hours is up. Whichever comes first. i'm thinking it might be. The latter malko also allows customers to book private film screenings for up to twenty people and sells food and beverage packages alongside the reynolds malkhaz twenty twenty revenue down ninety percent from twenty nineteen thanks to the covid nineteen pandemic and while renting out theaters to gamers film. Buffs is one way to avoid closing down completely. It's not making the chain much money. Karen melton malkhaz vice president and director of marketing told the bbc quote. It's gaining traction and becoming popular but nothing is adding to our profitability at this point on quote and that's the harsh reality for many theater chains. Amc theaters has spent much of the pandemic on the edge of bankruptcy after revenue fell ninety one percent. The chain managed to raise over nine hundred million in new equity and debt capital rap reported. The injection allows the chain defend off bankruptcy for now. Amc started renting private theatres last fall at around ninety nine dollars a pop for screenings though not for gaming although for an extra hundred bucks you can score a microphone to welcome your guests. Meanwhile screen rental from rival cinemark costs around one hundred dollars another chain. Alamo draft house offers private screening starting at three hundred dollars which includes tickets and food when you think of the average pre virus movie screening with around two hundred customers paying an average of a little over nine dollars for a ticket. That's eighteen hundred dollars that the theater brings end before even popping a single popcorn kernel at the often pricey concession stand private screenings and video game parties just can't cut into all that red still on the horizon for cinemas is. Well what is that. Hope as a million americans received the covid nineteen vaccination each day some theater chains are cautiously reopening at diminished capacity. Of course most amc theater locations are open in accordance with state and local guidelines and malka reopened several theaters in late january and earlier. This month of course strict guidelines are in place for one you can say goodbye to endless soda and popcorn refills and in theater service but still after the year that the cinema industry has had anything is better than nothing.

And everyone's like wait a minute read it. Who are these people. Low my name.

GameStop Reddit-rally sends Wall Street tumbling to its worst week in months
"In late January, a handful of unlikely Wall Street stocks began to skyrocket in value. It has led to big market volatility, and that will be the subject of a special meeting tomorrow with Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen and other government regulators. As Paul Solman reports, the spike in these stocks was driven. By an unconventional group of traders who banded together on a buying spree determined to take on the market for their own reasons. It is the latest in our economic Syriza's making sense. The frenzy. Obviously, this thesis is based largely on the fundamentals, Internet chatters hyping and buying stock and seemingly more a bun companies and you're right. It doesn't make any sense at all. AMC Bed, bath and beyond, and the bubble Gamestop crazy, and we're not as dominant as everyone thinks we are. We know what we're looking for. Is the regular Joes versus Wall ST Joe's using the free app Robin Hood to buy Gamestop, a money losing brick and mortar monger of video game disks that seems obsolete now that games are bought and downloaded online. And yet the stock skyrocketed last month, we're going to try to explain what's been happening with Alex Seamus from the University of Chicago Business School and my grandson show violas 17. So Alex set the scene for us What's been going on? There's people on this platform called Reddit, who decided to buy up a lot off the stock a lot of shares, partly because people hedge funds on Wall Street started short selling it. Okay, before we get into that, Joe, So I remember taking you to game stop when you were younger to buy you video games as kind of nostalgic appeal. Absolutely. And I think a lot of people my age in a little bit older grew up with Gamestop and I'm seeing a lot of people on platforms such as red It were saying isn't bye Bye Bye and Gamestop Two reasons one to make money, and the other was to stick it to the rich elite of the hedge funds. Hedge funds that have been betting against retro games stop by shorting its stock that is Now. In keeping with the retro theme, Alex suggested a retro product to visualize short selling. So here I've got an iPod, which I scrounged from somewhere in my basement, right, so on iPods kind of late game stop, it was very popular in the two thousands. And, you know it's not a bit obsolete because you know everybody's got music on their cell phones. So how do you short sell an iPod? So let's say I'm a hedge fund, and I think that the iPod is worth less than what it's being currently sold for. I go to you, Paul and I say, Can I borrow your iPod? So what I do is I sell the iPod that I just borrowed from you. And then buy it back for the future price. So if the price goes down, I make money because I'm basically getting the difference between that You just want me to lend it to you. I'm gonna borrow your your iPod. And I promise I'm gonna give you a little bit extra money whenever I return it. And to promise contractually to return my iPod by a certain date or whenever I ask for it back, So now you get wind of this short selling Joe. And what do you do? Okay. I grew up with this product. It's got a certain nostalgic value. I'm going to tell lots of my friends on social media may be read it to go out and buy iPod so we can all get in on the trend. What happens to you The hedge fund, Alex so because I Embedding that the price as actually going to go down in the future. If it ends up going up. I end up losing money because I have to buy it for Maura than what I sold it for initially and as you buy it, you're driving up the price even higher. Exactly, And that's what happened with game stop. $18 a share just last month. My grandson bought one share last Wednesday. And what price $293 I want to point out that I did not advise on this trade. I'm thinking that as more people are saying on social media that they're going to buy the value is going to go extremely high. Well is that I want to continue to stick it to the man, these people in Wall Street who have been running everything. And sure enough out on the street. I think it's great that rich people are losing money because capitalism is destroying this world. I look at the whole game stop with stocks is a revenge of the nerds. Kind of attack. This is one of the most complex attempts to coordinate on a single strategy that I think we've ever seen a sort of people's hedge fund says he must coordinating on the Reddit Forum. Wall Street bets. Urging one another to buy with rocket ship Emoji is which is to say, Look, this asset is going to keep going up so everybody should buy and toe hold with diamond hands. We are not going to break. We are going to keep the price up, and there's even a buy and hold sea shanty with diamond hands. They knew they profit if they could only hold But hold on most Wall Street. Hedge funds aren't short sellers. They bet on stock's going up. And in this case, some hedge funds have actually profited hugely from the so called revenge of the nerds, as have Robin Hood's paying customers, big investors, many of them hedge funds, who, by information from Robin Hood, about what people there are trading As for short sellers, are they bad actors? Sure, they bet against a parent losers like Gamestop, but also against frauds like the infamous end Ron, which short sellers helped take down nearly 20 years ago. By exposing its phony
Hi Lo Silver
"Taiwan is a director and global markets. At the bank of montreal. He wanted us to stress. his comments. reflect his personal opinions and are not the official position of the bank of montreal. So i asked him to give me his thoughts about the very essence of silver. Sometimes we call in our circles the devils metal because when it moves it can sit for a long time and not wrote but when it moves it can move rapidly and with a certain amount of viciousness fed devils metal sunday commodities trading seems way more exciting than it usually does like the devils metal sounds very treacherous so there are several theories that have been bouncing around the market now a bites spike in silver. And why it happened and who is behind it and let's not forget silvers. Thirteen percent swing oviously pales in comparison to the nearly five hundred percent jump in price that game stop stocks or last week. But that doesn't mean that there weren't any casualties in the silver market. Yes there were winners and losers ryan. I asked tie with a maybe that was the whole point. That like with game stop stock. Some traders might have tried to talk up the price of silver with the aim of hurting some big wall street players who are in the silver market. So that's the first theory and it was one that tired hurt as well. The stories made. It's made its way on reddit. Which one was that j. P. morgan was desperately short Silver and would have to cover. This was a way to get a j. p. morgan which is The biggest bank in the united states that conspiracy theory has been around for a long time. It is also a canard jiffy morgan's one of the biggest bullion banks in the world. They lend lot of metal out but they typically do not lend it out uncollateralized they lend metal but you have to give them dollar so while they may be short metal in a location for a short period of time. It's never anything that could come anywhere near to bringing a major bank to its knees much less. Jp morgan so this was already going after j. P. morgan no j. p. morgan not in in the crosshairs got it so theory to then so those. This bows going around. Maybe some of the short seller's who got squeezed on game stop last week have been trying to distract what ty likes to call the red legions to shift their attention and their money and their trading activity to silver. That seems a little farfetched. I think if you were short. Jimmy and amc Entirely consumed with trying to make sure your position workout. You had enough funding the hold as long as you could. I'm not sure if those would be the folks who would open up another another front in the in the war. So to speak against the raiders. You can't dismiss it completely out of hand but that seems fairly unlikely so this wasn't like the short seller's strike back no okay well we'll maybe not or maybe it was just a bad strike maybe just about strike strike so theory three then that some traders who long silver which means that they own it an expected to rise in price. Maybe they kind of infiltrated the the red at message boards in order to jack up the price of silver so that they could then make some money. Yeah they they were like double agents kind of double agents in the market. Exactly that you know. That is an appealing narrative. If you're if you're long and you are and you're trying to push the market with with news like this even though you could certainly great reddit account and use a vpn and try to keep your anonymity. This would clearly be considered. I think mark manipulation. Now i'm not an attorney but this type of thing that might lend a a clever entrepreneur. A long stay in federal penitentiary in. That's pretty that's a pretty steep price to pay if you're a silver traitor and you join read it and say like hey everybody jump into silver. You literally go to jail. You could literally go to jail so that seems like the stakes are a little bit too high for me. That is a high price to pay for the devils medal and indeed. So it's maybe not that either but the fact is that something did happen to silver this week tie. It was like a combination of rumors and the willingness of silver traders to grasp this opportunity that was presented to them by this price surge the mindset of market makers and many traders are. Oh you want to push it. You push as much as you like and once you're done we'll see where we end up in It will go on it. We'll go on trading and doing what
Robinhood to allow buying fractional shares of GameStop, AMC
"But we start off with game stopped or game on check. Today's price action on wall. Street's hottest stock maybe one out of stock game. Stop gaining more than two percent while other heavily shorter names like costs. Amc and blackberry also posted gains robinhood easing trading restrictions today allowing users to buy fractional shares in game stop and amc but these socks are still down big for the week. So what is the current state of this read rebellion that has captured wall street's attention let's bring him back bassani so we got a couple of big questions for you number one here. Can we actually say that. The rebellion is over based on what we've seen over the past couple of days when we know that restrictions have still been in place on trading the stock. I found a the main is over. But it's found a level and. I think it's subsided. I mean just look at the the volatility today remarkably low and i know you mentioned restrictions but what restrictions there's someone robin hood but trade. It almost fifty million shares. I mean heck of a lot of people are trading robin woodstock. It's not a bunch of russian sitting out there so there's very few restrictions out there and i don't think that's a big inhibition for the stock right now has short interest. Come down enough to the point where we say that short-squeezes over we know that it's dropped significantly over the past week or so down by more than fifty percent or something like that but it's still pretty high. It's it's a moving target. I see different numbers every day. And it's actually fairly difficult to get a real accurate number. Clearly we can say it's way down. Now here's my bet. Bet see new shorts on this story coming in. I wouldn't be surprised if we gotta level at fifty percent and it stayed there for a long time because a lot of people still feel even ninety dollars this thing. This is ridiculously over-priced. There are plenty of people who had ten dollar bloat numbers on this just a few months ago. So it's a moving target. But i wouldn't be surprised if there were new shorts coming in in the weeks ahead last question we have for you tonight. Regulation where would it come from. Who would be the target. Yellen really being smart here. She's being a leader. She's going to channel all this energy and she just knows what she's doing. I'll tell you what the concern the street has is. This could morphine. Do some kind of broader investigation. So finra has always been there the regulators of the brokers finres already said. We're looking at game of vacation of trading that's a hornets nest because immediately you can start saying it's the site you have suitable for your investors. Do you have a balloons going off. Or when people make a trade you have hot trades of the day at the top with this induce people. Who would not normally make these trays to do that. And engage in behavior. That is not suitable for their type of investing. That's a real hornets nest. Melissa i know the sec is looking at mark manipulation. That's a different story. I think that's going to be a very tough case to prove. I'm not sure that what happened here with red confines with the normal indications of some kind of pump and dump operation. I think they're gonna have a hard time proving that particular one. Yeah thank you.

"Tickets online i believe without it you get charge like convenience fee of a buck fifty or something so no fees when you do that that only at amc or does that also apply to fandango oh who by their to get through anything but i do everything's everything through amsya bango me too crazy now the gap is real it's a great experience it's a very thoughtfully designed app very good very it's it's awesome hundred percent should do it according to the so you don't have to stand in line with the normals i know that i would right i mean this is i buy all of my tickets online pretty much but i'm waiting separate line yes for everything every so even the snacks i'm waiting with my daughter for the concession stand and then a group of people older two like older couples for the coming they come in the the stubs to premium line so i know that premier line and so i know that once whoever's done in front of us they will get to go next right and waiting for aren't you antifast pass in the same thing lead so here's my question by complete is this they finally were waiting there for almost five minutes finally the woman front gets whatever it is she needs they finally there waiting to if i was and then they get up there and what would you like and the guy goes let me see there's only like three options i guess the problem so many options down the score may right there's the chicken waffle sandwich there's the chicks okay i'll put this according to the pitchers you know the little video the show before the movie starts the afc stubs members are drinking out of glass where is that possible i've never seen that mcgovern's so if you get the bar go the bar glass what bar is this look nothing that's called macguffin really didn't is what it's called it's a movie joke i know this is what it's called it all the all the amc bars are often because it's like oh she'll be getting martini unless unless amc arlington draft house have you have you are the alamo draft house time now oh i i but the coke is the coke in down in down bridge yup we have an alamo draft house opened this weekend buddy went he said it was amazing and the fizz i want that fizz supra carbonation supercar i want that fizzle over my face his with an f all over be crazy it no i i can't believe you guys aren't stubs member i mean it is again i think it's either nine ninety nine or twelve bucks a year you get up just the size upgrade alone on your popcorn and soda is worth like eight dollars visit but but don't actually have to buy food at a at a theater who does that we popcorn and rich uncle pennybags over well look what i can't i'm sure it's fine

"A one year package you see that like trying to scare me but most of the websites i visit our japanese so there's no chance they'll figure out we don't even know what those sites what's happening okay so variety is what happened where's that from who's catchphrases that is fred willard it's fred voting rob a mighty wind yes and he was saying that if a tidal wave should come over that he could say what happened his other trademark phrase he said was i don't think so i don't think so i love fred willard thank you so varieties reporting that amc theaters the trees is counteracting movie pass with its own premium subscription called amc stubs a list which is kind of a mouthful already it's nineteen ninety five a month up to three movies a week your thoughts jv l i have complicated thought sunny do you have thoughts good or bad what's going on here i have my my big thought on this is amc and regal and the rest should have just waited for movie pass to collapse under its own weight because i think that this is the this is the sort of thing that ends up destroying an industry selling these subscription type models on the other hand i think that this is a it makes more sense for amc than it ever did for movie pass right because movie passes a reseller movie passes a reseller movie buying those rings and then reselling exactly movie pass never made it never made any sense it doesn't make any sense none how how this was supposed to work as business model is is a total mystery teammate literally everyone volume literally well i mean the best thing about moving past is at now they're getting involved in like individual movies so they they were heavily involved they had a they had a piece of the godley movie and apparently some thirty percent good to seth no ono and apparently some thirty to forty percent of the tickets sold to godley were sold through movie pass so i'm totally baffled as to how so they not only bought a piece of the movie they're paying people to go see it essentially perhaps they should get involved in blockchain this is this is the next step movie pass blockchain but it makes more sense for amc because a this gets people into the theaters like it you know this is like the whole thing is amc once people in their theaters buying popcorn and pizza snacks and stuff and the question is we don't know the details of their revenue share so so movie pass was buying the tickets themselves reselling discounts and see they make the tickets and let me tell you the.

"Okay let's start with the amc movie pass subscriptions your take on those this is so fantastic for someone who moderately likes going to the movies but unbelievable for someone who likes going to the movies all the time you know now that the one we talked about before movie pass is in so much financial trouble and people are like what am i gonna do if movie pass doesn't survive amc now has their own deal that launches next tuesday it's nineteen ninety five a month and it gets you three movies a week even including i max so you could go to potentially twelve movies a month if you're a movie extreme lover and it will cost you like a buck fifty a movie even if you go just a couple of times a month you're even with what buying tickets would be you go once a week week you're way ahead of the game so is this do you have to sign up for it you sign up it's not a contract you sign up for a subscription in amc's program and they don't have it on their website yet we're ahead of their website but it will be on their next tuesday it's called amc stubs premier now they've had a program called stubs they've had a version called premier for a while this is in a new level of service where for the twenty bucks a month you get three movies a week i'm sorry how is that net flicks and the other streaming services affecting the movie industry and it's i'm reading that it's not as much as would be expected it's actually it has made it tough for theaters you know it's hard for theaters to get rear ends and seats because you now have these huge screen tv's at home with the fantastic sound systems you don't have to go stand in line and by overpriced concessions so this is an industry that is under assault from so many different directions and i think it is tough for the for the theaters to make a go of it and then you have movie past that came along and made unlimited movies ten dollars a month it really put a world to hurt on the frequent movie goer who would generate a lot of revenue for a theater chang coming and buying tickets so this is amc's answer to both issues trying to get people who not all the time or into going to movies but maybe get them in there more and then for the frequent movie goer to get them off a movie pass and get them onto the amc program our movie theaters going by the way of for example books newspapers brick and mortar stores where it's they're decreasing like crazy they are decreasing it's not like crazy but they are and they're kind of like the decline of the roman empire it's not like they've fallen off a cliff but there is a decline in importance and significance for theaters all right now before we get to deal the week i'm looking at clark howard six step guide to.

"They're bringing that price way down and and scott i guess the the objection from amc is that we are losing money directly on this because movie pass has to pay the full price of every ticket that you buy that you get through them but amc is worried about price deflation they're saying if if suddenly everybody can get an unlimited number of tickets per month for ten dollars that's gonna drive down prices world of accra theaterwide industrywide and we're not going to be able to make money if that's the case i think they're worried about the perception and precedents that something like a ten dollar a month subscription sets i think they're scared of that because that sounds crazy cheap i know that if you said to me my local theatres values here role getting on this program i would in less than a heartbeat sign up for this thing and do it and i will if they do if this they know as a working out neither of which ramsey theater so i'd be okay if they if they boycott this thing i guess but that's ridiculously cheat from a uh a consumer standpoint even if i really don't go that often i may go twice a month if i'm lucky given my my schedule that's still going to be worth it to me so i have to see i have two weird concerns air one is i can't believe they can go as low as ten that's a seemed insane to me and say hey go to any of them you want the restrictions like you mentioned before no trudy movies you can't see the same dourthe heidi movies its duty brienza that's what i met duty movies only know 3d movies no i mac special screenings those kind of things and out of the door but there's no 24hour restriction anymore sleep they used to have that they got rid of right you could go three new releases that we weekend go on a saturday morning adult leave told out traditions went saw three movies so that that is very palatable from a consumer standpoint but on there and they're probably seeing that as well this really cheap it's the movie doing experience suddenly instead of that or higher being a single ticket price for a twoday digital film.

"The amc the amc processes that sets it up orders the appraisal and the appraiser gets that order than the appraiser is toll don't do that assignment they complete the assignment they upload it back to the amc the amc reviews it processes it and then sense at back to the bank and they go from there so there's no more direct contact between alone officer and the appraiser who was speaking with joe cavanaugh of cabin appraisals and if you want to be on this program you have a question for joe or myself the number here eight four three five five six twelve fifty so let me ask you a question how do appraisers get on the list these appraisal management companies i mean what what sort of qualifications are there as a good question brian the only way you can get on there is to just a fill out their application send in your resume your qualifications some examples of your work and if it's up to their standards than they put you on the approved list so you don't have to have like fifty or 100 appraisals under your belt it is there's any is there any experience based requirement among somebody's different banks and and do the requirements per bank or i'm sorry per appraisal management company differ i can't answer that because i'm not sure what they say their qualification outline is but what i can say the minimum requirement is you have to be licensed they don't accept apprentice appraisers as of this time now we are working to change that but it's been a big problem in the industry the think this whole system of appraisal management companies as is working like it was intended to work or other flaws well with any system i think there are flaws i'm sure from the banking side it's working very well the problem on the appraisal end of that is it used to be prior to the crash in the creation of these amc's that a bank relied on appraisers experience how well did they know oh that particular market you wouldn't sand somebody who's new in the business out to do a three or four million dollar property downtown around the ocean front or down a key awoke after.
