"Now that's good. I think i mean in the sense that you're you're getting more distribution in seventy percent of the population is located within five miles of a cvs in efforts to become more of a of a healthcare company. They're they're that stoking traffic and so i'm trying to figure out if that results in meaningful bump in sales it's more just incremental. We'll just have to see there. But i do think the most interesting part of the quarter was the mcdonald's story my initial thought when i saw the cbs news was that it would be incremental. But i think we can agree that if it's not incremental if it's truly meaningful we're going to hear about that on subsequent conference calls. I'd imagine so. I'd imagine it reminded me of that. That headline a while back when we we heard that i think it was walgreens. Said they were going to start selling sushi in. I mean it just. It didn't really line up. I'm not sure. I really am going to walgreen get sushi but you know i mean they gave it. They gave it the old college. Try so to speak. I do think it's the mcdonald's story to me is fascinating because if you re through both companies calls if you read through mcdonald's announced on this on this mic plant platform and then you read through beyond meets earnings call and their reaction to the mcdonalds news. It very two very different reactions. I mean mcdonald's clearly is playing offense here in on the other side of the coin there beyond meat tried to. It's like they couldn't really tell you it was a good thing or a bad thing if they felt a little bit more on the defensive there. It's a little bit less clear from beyond meat perspective. How that may impact the business. I think we're trying to play down the impacts there whereas mcdonald's is like hey listen this was this was built exclusively by us for us in. It sounds like that's where. Mcdonald's is placing its chips. Going forward when it comes to plant based menu. They're not going to be relying on a partner like beyond meat whereas beyond meat is kind of hemming and hiring and say well. We're still going to be a part of the mcdonald's the universe and they couldn't really offer any color as to how it caught me. It sounded like it caught them a little bit off guard. And we'll see how that plays out. I mean that's that's not going to be fatal for the business but it is. It is a sign you know. Maybe other restaurant companies out there decide to try to do their own thing. We'll have to wait and see clearly. You know the food service business matters doesn't matter as much as the retail but it'll certainly be a story To keep an eye on if beyond meat had a rough quarter With d. r. horton's fourth quarter was pretty much everything shareholder could hope for profits came in much higher than expected for the homebuilder. They raised the dividend raise their guidance for twenty twenty one and shares of. Dr horton up. More than four percent. This morning yeah. It's it's been a very nice time to be in the home building. Business of your. Dr horton particularly over the last five years over the last five years generated over five billion dollars in cash from Home building operations growing consolidated revenues by eighty eight.

"I do think that we're going to have effective. One's safety is a question mark because evaluating vaccines for safety takes time. We think of ASAP as as soon as possible, but in vaccines. We want them to be as safe as possible. There are steps we can safely skip like waiting in line behind other paperwork at the FDA. The FDA can just say vaccines I likewise were preparing factories before. We know whether the vaccines will work. That's going to cost a large amount of money, but it's not compromising the product safety I do. We take the time to do proper research and make sure that the vaccines are safe in humans. Though that's one step, we shouldn't skip. Okay good to know now listener. McCarron says some projections suggest that we won't return to normal life. Remember that until the vaccine is available in twenty twenty one and even then health officials warn us that might not be enough given multiple strains which might need different kinds of vaccines. What do you have to say about that? Well I certainly sympathize about being a creature of habit because I am one to. A static for some kind of silly things. From before Corona virus was one day, the zoo was giving away admission for a reason. I can't even remember now and we all just went to the zoo, not a care in the world. Now that feels a little league. Saying we flew to the moon. I really sympathize with the desire to go back whether it's going back to work to support your family or even just doing back to playing Frisbee in the park on a Saturday afternoon. With that said I do think that Cheney had an excellent take on it and the print magazine normal is going to look different, but not necessarily in negative ways. We Home School for example, and it's been very interesting to watch the whole world. Walk a mile in our shoes I. do think that will help. People understand what home schooling is like. I've also seen an article about courting couples who are starting to get to know each other by letter, writing and phone calls such that they start out with this foundation of really knowing each other. That's a change, but maybe not a bad one right. Yeah I've been witnessed to that with my own adult children that are back home, well reader Susan. Dugan is wondering about how a vaccine would work. Can you explain the difference between vaccines that prevent? Disease in vaccines that cure or slow the progress of disease? anti-viral vaccines work by preventing disease. Basically when we get sick with a virus, our immune system has to figure out what distinguishes the virus from our own cells. We call that an antigen and then start making antibodies to it. A vaccine works by showing the Antigen to the immune system and more or less teaching it. This is bad if you see this. This you need to do something about it. That's a huge simplification of a very complicated process of course, but that's the idea behind vaccines for viruses as far as vaccines to cure diseases, researchers have experimented with that idea with trying to immunize patients against things like cancer cells. That's a fascinating idea, although that sort of thing is still in the research lab. Okay next. We have a question from a listener named Meg. She serves as a missionary in Thailand. We were scheduled to go on furlough in the US from mid-may to early. January, but here we are still in Thailand. Are furloughs are filled with driving from house to house and from Church to Church. We're thinking of going later and doing those typical furlough thinks is fall. Is it silly to think that would be a reasonable thing to do considering the second way. First off, thank you for serving in the field mission were was already risky enough and the many questions surrounding corona virus only added to my respect for those of you who are doing. Thank you and thank you again. With that said this is a huge question in the mission world, one family friend missionary in Africa, or he would be, but he can't get there because the country in question isn't allowing anyone at all. Another was going to Asia, but his flight was cancelled, and he hasn't been able to find another one, so there may be no flight or return flight or two week quarantines coming here from Thailand and coming back from Thailand. I do realize that furlough is about far more than just fundraising to keep the mission on track. It's also a chance to reconnect with your family with your friends with your church with your home culture with the foods you grew up with. You will probably be required to self quarantine for two weeks after you get here from Thailand. And after that the risks are more related to the second wave here than to the situation in Thailand of course, the good news is that airline seemed to be offering a really unprecedented level flexibility often even with the cheap fares, so if you choose one. Let's refund your tickets. You could always line up your tickets now and see what the future brings. Okay now this is about we talked about being outside earlier. KRISTA I'll be has a question about sunlight's effect on the virus. There were some initial claims that sunlight would kill the virus on surfaces. Have you seen any other information about that? And then related to at what.

"This is especially true for the number one risk. Risk factor, which is simply being elderly. colloquially we may use the expression died of old age, but medically speaking. We can't rate that on a death certificate. There's a chain of events the immediate cause underlying causes contributing causes so adept certificate might say cardiorespiratory failure meaning the heart stopped breathing stopped, but then what caused that? Was it say heart attack? Okay? What caused the heart attack? What were the contributing factors? The. Only real exception is sudden. Traumatic events were person really was fine until an accident happened otherwise, there's a chain of causes and along those lines one attribute of Covid nineteen that's now coming into focus is that it causes a hyper coagulated will state that means a state where the blood is too prone to clotting, so it can cause problems with the heart and the circulation, and that means that someone who had a fetal stroke or heart attack while sick with cove, nineteen may well have had it because of being sick with covid nineteen gathering information like that to help us understand. The situation is one of the main reasons that we handled certificates that way. Did Not know that. Christine whipple also wondered whether the reimbursements hospitals are getting from the federal. Government for treating cove in nineteen patients influences how they classify deaths. Hospitals have a financial incentive to say. Someone died of Covid nineteen, even if other health issues might have played a role in it. The short answer is no or at least not specifically for Covid nineteen. The system does reward hospitals for treating sicker patients. There's more work and it uses more supplies, and there are also penalties. If patients do worse than average, so hospitals do want to be sure they're staying on top of everything. That's wrong with a given patient. The Cares Act. The Corona Virus Act. Did also provide for a comparatively small. Additional payment for cove, one nineteen patients. On the flip side, the penalties for documenting inaccurately are pretty severe and more than that inflating the number of covid nineteen deaths would be really counterproductive financially for hospitals, because they can't go back to doing elective procedures until their areas settled down, and they're losing far more money from not doing elective procedures than they're gaining from that little boost to the Medicare rates. There is also a number called quote excess deaths that helps us to understand the situation. If we zoom out a little, it looks at the number of deaths in a given time period compares it to the number. We'd more typically have at that time of year. I'm not aware of any other major changes to public health, so I think it is reasonable to assume the great majority of the difference is due to corona virus. Hey I do want to say one other thing here, though which kind of ties in with us. As far as the numbers go, what is throwing things off? Is this phenomenon of double-counting? Some areas are doing something. That's not a statistical good idea, and that's counting each positive test as a separate case of corona virus, so if someone gets sick, has a positive antigen test. down. He's feeling better. A couple of weeks later gets another antigen test. It's still positive. Gets another antigen tests and a couple of weeks. It's negative now once an antibody test and that's positive. That could get counted as three positive tests. Obviously, he's only one person so that is throwing a monkey wrench into the statistics in some areas. Listener Margaret, Duncan wrote in to ask a question about getting together with her small group. Of Church it plans to start meeting again. Without social distancing the group also shares a weekly meal together. Now Margaret says she seems to be the only one worried about it. It's also important to note that all of the members of her small group are over sixty five, so Margaret wants to know. What is your opinion Dr Horton about groups like this starting to meet up again. I wish I knew churches. Some of this will always have to do with an individual's attitude towards risk, but a lot has to do with the area if your area has very few cases, and the local authorities feel like the situation is generally under control I. Don't think it's reckless to say okay. We're going to take a small chancer. Here in Pittsburgh where we had a lot more cases. I wouldn't recommend that yet. My church is starting to meet again, but we're taking a lot of precautions. Social distancing masks, people also not sending as loudly as the as the usually would. Maybe, that's a good thing to and here in my part of Missouri I would feel comfortable doing that, so that's the location assessment of risk onto the next question now like a lot of people listener Bryan Hughes will be going back to his office soon. Here's his question. I'm nervous about getting infected with Kobe. Through droplets in the air or more specifically by the Ajax System, my office building I'm also concerned because my wife has thirty four weeks pregnant and has a heart defect. Would you suggest that I try to continue to work at home or just wear a mask at all times and hope for the best? I'd be more worried about getting the virus from being close to someone with that, so a lot probably depends on the layout of this listeners office is one of those open layout offices that had been really popular lately. Where people are all getting together and talking, or is it what we used to think of as an office building where each employee had his or her own little office? Are He and his co workers able to keep a healthy distance from each other? Do people have and use masks? Now with his wife situation, that is a little trickier. We played it very safe when we were expecting, and my wife was otherwise in good health. Many of us in healthcare had these personal rituals. It almost made me think of the ritual washing was we read about in the Old Testament? Washed before leaving work drive home and nobody was allowed to touch me until I showered and changed into other clothes, food road to work in disposable containers, so things that I had there would not come back into the house. That sort of thing, so deaf working from home isn't a realistic for this listener..

"Here's a summary. The Corona virus is a virus. It's most closely related to SARS. It's more distantly related to actually some viruses cause colds high dose vitamin C won't cure it but normal dose vitamin D. Like the stuff and milk may help your immunity. I do want to say an normal dose again for most people. That's in the six hundred to one thousand international unit. Iu per day range. We don't need a huge dose vaccine. Certainly are the ultimate answer for returning to normal life but in the short term there are things we can do to reduce transmission protect ourselves and especially to protect the most vulnerable the elderly those who have weakened immune systems those who are just chronically in poor health on a personal note. I really appreciate the humility in that question. I've heard some people really really blast the shutdowns and say this is so political but when you see events like the clusters of deaths in nursing homes in different areas. I think that really underscores Weist act cautiously. We came really close to the New York City hospitals going from just way beyond what they were meant to be able to handle to just collapsing. And that's shutting down the city very aggressively. I I hate to think what it would have looked like without those steps. Yeah that is a sobering. Thought don't WanNA think about it. Laura Bell wrote in to ask something that I think. A lot of people wondered about at least in the beginning. Why is the response to this? Pandemic so drastically different from the response to say H One n one ten years ago. The short answer is that this virus plays a lot rougher than h one n one had in the end when they tallied all up. H One n one killed about eighteen thousand people. That's a lot but corona has killed as of last night's. Who Situation Report one hundred sixty two thousand? Those are the ones that we know. Thousands more have died without testing. And there's that a symptomatic transmission. That's the other new thing. About Corona virus. H One one was flu. People who had it looked like people who had the flu here. People can look healthy but still transmitting it. And that makes it hard to control the virus with the more typical measures so it's that combination of it being a bad `bug and being hard to control that's leading to the responses. You're seeing so you said over. One hundred sixty thousand people have died and that's of course a moving number so That makes sense about the bad bug and the hard to control aspects are next batch of questions are all related to following those stay at home orders Laura Lives in Charlotte North Carolina and. She recorded her question. Let's listen as Christian. How do I love neighbors? By providing meals or heartwarming gifts such as cookies or a homemade mask in a way that safe what precautions must stay take which ones are wise to take? And which ones are unnecessary ineffective. How do I communicate the precautions? I've taken without showing up on their front porch and a full hazmat suit. It's a great question. I do. Love the idea of Christians being salt and light especially at a time like this now first and foremost the common sense thing. If you're at all symptomatic if you're wondering whether you might have it might be better to encourage your neighbors with a phone call but assuming that nobody's symptomatic. Wash your hands. Well we don't know how long the virus survives on surfaces but cleanliness couldn't hurt as for communicating the precautions. You can always just write them down. We actually got one package that was handled that way and I was very touched to see all the precautions that the lady had lovingly spelled out on the outside of a nice well. Here's another question related to food. Katie from Massachusetts wants to know If getting takeout from a restaurant increases the chance of getting the virus and if so are there ways to reduce that chance or is it best to avoid outside food altogether. What do you think Dr Horton? It does depend a little on what your choices are. If one of your choices happens to be knocking on the contents of your large pinch at home. It's hard to argue with that being the lowest risk thing to do now for most people that's not an option and that brings brings up the question of is at higher risk to eat takeout then to go to the supermarket and wonder if the other people walking through the aisles. Could be contagious. That's a lot harder question to answer. You're dealing with being around people either way you're dealing with packaging either way. One could argue that. You're breathing more air that other people have exhaled in the supermarket But some rules of thumb for either situation number one pay by credit cards are not handing cash change back and forth with the restaurant especially if you can pay by phone So you're not even doing if you can have. The food brought out to the car. Instead of walking into the building and some grocery stores also allowed US I know Walmart grocery brings the brings food out and I think a lot of their competitors due to I've been surprised at how friendly businesses are to this. I would have thought it would seem like a big imposition to them but when I've gone out for a few things the business owners really were accommodating. I add apologized to one thing. I'm sorry I'm trying not to go into stores. And he said let's find customers can't come right. I've had the same experience where I live in. Missouri Dr Horton. You mentioned packaging. Is there a way to decrease contamination from that? There is if you want to. If you WANNA play it extra safe You can do is open the packaging so that you won't have to touch it again to eat the food then wash your hands and then eat it. The reason is if putting the food into the package or delivering it contaminated the package. That will protect you. Make sense well. Jean Mic Christian emailed us to ask if two people in two different households are self quarantine for two weeks with no symptoms. Can they get together inside one of their houses and then related to that Gene wants to know if she can safely care for her toddler grandchild while her daughter and son-in-law work from home they're all self quarantining. What do you think about that if they've already been quarantined for two weeks without symptoms the chances of either of them being sex should be extremely low? Now we're assuming a few things here that nobody's cheating if you will or being mostly quarantined That sort of thing now. She's asking whether people who are still in the process of self quarantine can get together. That's Murkier area. Because then you're kind of stepping outside of quarantine And that's especially true when folks are then getting together with more people with their families but assuming that that's not what we're talking about here. There's another way to reduce risk which is just to wait for a nice day and get together outside right common sense another listener. Megan road into ask a similar question. She has a three week old baby. Congratulations Megan and she wonders. If it's safe to get together with other family members like grandparents who have been staying at home that have gone out for things like grocery shopping. Now that's going to be. One of those edgy questions again isn't it? It is it comes to a question of how you feel about risk what. I'm talking about that sort of thing with my patients. I sometimes compare it to how people would order a steak. If they're in a restaurant one person says I want to know that every last German this is dead. I want it cooked. Well done another one says I want it rare and the pleasure of eating that rare steak is worth taking a chance. Who's right well? You could argue. Both of them are and they just have a different attitude toward risk realistically. If we're talking about people who took protecting themselves seriously and have been quarantining themselves for a few weeks. You're not taking a very big risk for other situations where they've been going out grocery shopping. You're probably taking at least a somewhat higher risk in the meantime what about Sky Zoom facetime. I know it's not the same but it is better than nothing while it seems like most people are following the guidelines about staying home and avoiding unnecessary contact. We do have to go out. Occasionally a listener Dera Kristof wants to know what precautions are really necessary after a trip to the grocery store for example. Should we just wash our hands when we get home or do we need to take off all their clothes and immediately put them in the Washer and Dryer and then as we take a shower for the everyday person that is complying with the state home? Orders are those types of things necessary. How contagious is this novel Corona Virus? Because I feel like there's quite a bit of fear out there and seems like the common sense thing of just washing your hands and just general sanitary practices would be sufficient. I should probably mention here. I am the family Germaphobe. I discovered a few weeks ago. That Staples Shipman of clorox wipes. I felt like a kid on Christmas when I clicked order but to take your questions in order. How contagious is it? Well it's not very hard to get again. There's that quirk that most young people who don't get badly ill coupled with that it is hey fever season so if you're young and invincible like we all once were right and you're feeling a little a little iffy you might talk yourself into thinking. Oh Yeah I bet it's the pollen and and go out anyway and now you know other people could be exposed. Handwashing has always been a very good idea. It's even more so now but just being around someone's cough or sneeze is more than enough to got corona beyond that. There isn't really enough evidence for me to say yes or no to a specific thing. My personal is if I stayed in the car I paid by phone and I just pulled up and people put things in the trunk. I just wash my hands. Well if I were actually in a store. That's a big. If I don't think I've been inside a store for quite a while now then I might actually shower better yet though again. Use a grocery pickup or delivery service and just skipped going into the store. I know I miss yes. I really miss those things to so much more than I thought I would. Okay now moving ahead. We know that increased testing capability will be vital to track and contain covert nineteen listener brand New England notes. That it's been hard for ordinary people to get tested especially in the early days of the outbreak. Is that changing? And if so Dr Houghton. What's the best way for someone to get tested now? Does it vary by city or State. It is changing. It isn't changing as quickly as it needs to both for health and for the economy now the reason that testing is so important to look under the hood for a moment is that the. Who the World Health Organization categorizes countries as one of three ways isolated cases only clusters of cases or community transmission community. Transmission means. We don't even know who brought it. Where and that's where we are right. Now we're trying to get back to clusters of cases such that health authorities can try to fight individual fires now. The specifics of that testing vary by area around here. They're a drive through centers and that is far better than going into a health facility. Or if you haven't been exposed yet you could end up being exposed by going there okay. Availability of tests also varies by by area. Very okay listener. Rich Thorn also wrote in with a question related to tracking the disease the daily figures we hear reported focus on those who are sick and those who have died. But there's a big difference between those two so why aren't the numbers of those listed as recovered higher than they are? Surely there are plenty of people who have recovered and are just past the point of being carriers. No some of this does relate to the testing situation. There's a formal definition of recovered which is a little different from how you and I normally think of it. We think I was sick. I feel better now so I'm recovered. That's the common sense definition. But there's a scientific definition where you need one positive test and then at least one negative test so if tests are scarce in your community as they still are a lot of the country and you're feeling better in the short term. You're probably not going to be tested. And thus you're not going to be listed as recovered That could be for the best statistically because people have had it may shed virus in their stool for up to four weeks. This also is the test shortage is also a problem in the interest of being able to donate plasma if you either recovered and you now test negative but you never did test positive or you tested positive and you couldn't get a re-test you're not going to be a plasma donor. Because they want both of those together antibody tests would be a great answer to that and let people donate even if they never had a positive test. But those aren't out yet I think it is far more likely that were understating. The death toll than overstating because of that testing situation many places are saying well. We didn't test so we don't know that it was corona so we're not going to say it was corona but if death rate in a given area or a given facility goes up so sharply it is a pretty safe assumption that at least the great majority of that change was related to corona virus. Okay moving along now A question about those who are seriously ill. Justin Sylvester wants to know if there's any information about the number of people who have died who were smokers or who used vaping devices before getting sick. Dr Horton is that a big factor. In how well patients are able to fight off the disease..

Stay tuned at the end of this episode here a little more about this fascinating new show. From wondering, I'm David Brown. And this is business wars daily on this Wednesday, December twelve Airbnb wants to build you a house. Yes, you heard me, right. The company that popularized home sharing all over the world. Now wants to design and build homes for sale. The idea comes from an Airbnb think tank called Sam, Sarah, which CEO Joe Gebbie created two years ago. Once the company was worth billions and had loads of data on how we choose using share housing Gebbie thought it was time to dream up disruption. So he puts them Airbnb dreamers to work and a new division called backyard was born but backyard is no traditional housing developer, like, DR, Horton or Lanar homes. It's an incubator experimenting with ways to build housing. That's designed for sharing from the start Gebbie positions backyard as a laboratory attempting to solve social environmental and even cultural problems of not enough housing for growth. Population outmoded architecture not intended for sharing and environmentally wasteful construction. Ironically, it's worth noting that critics accuse Airbnb of fueling housing shortages and driving up rental prices in major cities. It's not clear yet. Whether backyard homes will be cottages single family houses apartment buildings or all of the above. But one thing is clear. They'll incorporates smart home technology right from the start, and they might include flexible construction with movable, walls and other futuristic notions. It's all part of the company's plan not to become just another developer. But to as Gebbie says, rethink the home. It's also when effort to rethink Airbnb and give it some physical assets, not just virtual ones to take it into the future. From one degree. This is business.

"That space getting rid of the formal dining room, creating the great room affect with kitchen eating area living room, all one space, and the effect of that is being able to get affected down the price of the home. The other thing number builders doing, and this was something that started with the express brand of DR Horton, one of the biggest builders in the country is eliminating. A great number of options in the plan. Because every time you add another option that perspective homebuyer say well, we'd like the door here. We like this. They are a whatever every time you do that you end up with more time. Spent more material wasted more complexity and the job and the result of those three things is you drive up the cost. So others are emulating the idea of the express a building a simplified structure and a more efficient structure to get the prices into a point that they are more affordable. Now, the other part of this. Is that a lot of first-time homebuyers have a fixation and fascination with new construction. The reality is the effective cost per square foot. You pay for a home is much lower with a used home than it is with a new home. And the us Thome will more likely be in a neighborhood that has established itself has found. It's true fair market value and is a lower risk purchase. Then that new construction plus with the shortages of labor and the increase in materials costs because of the tariffs. There's an even larger advantage right now to buying used homes versus new. When it just isn't side to tell you that I had an opportunity. Last Friday to be the speaker at an event honoring World War Two vets. And I was honored to be in the presence of several World War Two vets who fought in the European theater and the Asian theatre many who had been wounded one wounded three different times and battle in World War Two and went back into the battle after healing from each series of wounds. So three purple hearts, silver star and one person after another with these inspiring stories of what they accomplished for our nation in World War Two. And it's so important that we recognize what our veterans have done. But something that I made a point of speaking is that our veterans from more recent wars. Vietnam. Iraq and Afghanistan. The Vietnamese the Vietnam veterans they got roofed completely. They came home to an unappreciative nation people that were hostile to them called them baby killers and worse, and it was just a horror. What happened to the Vietnam? Vets the brave men and women who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan, they have been appreciated in Americans again. And again have said thank you for your service. But as I've shared within the past it's frustrating to me that our military personnel are sent back over and over again on deployments because the burden today is not shared is. It has been in prior prior war situations, and there's so much that our former military personnel knee. Need? I was touched by a story about in Kansas City where there's been a tiny home village constructed. That has two dozen plus homes that have been constructed for homeless veterans. I saw a story today about homeless women's veterans living in their cars. Lot of veterans living on.

And you're an expert on it. Becky. Land and rule American. How people are wanting to move out of the city as they get closer to retirement things of that nature. See it happen. A lot of a lot of people call me, and they want to get out of the city limits. A little bit to have a little bit more room to roam. And when it comes to buy land or residence with a land, you really need to have someone who knows about buying land. And all of the flood plains, deed, restrictions encroachments. So on a big fan. Of and I've had them on my show over the years. D R Horton, right? Yes. D R Horton goes in and they buy a plot of land. And then they subdivide build the streets build the property if you as a real estate agent, we'll talk about the real estate agents perspective. I, but is it any different selling a DR Horton home versus a three two bedroom. That's on twenty acres north and dim. Yes. It's completely different. Because you're big builders have to go in they buy big parcel of land. They have to get it and approved Platt with the county with plotting to subdivide that piece of property, though, even an individual that has let's say fifty acres that wants to subdivided. He's still has to go through the planning process and get an approved with the county and the J got it got it. So why would somebody move from? I mean, I know. No, this is maybe this is the riddle section of the show. Why would somebody moved from the city on north when you talk about Roman? I got a couple of my friends that.

In fact, they were buying home builders like crazy at the bottom of this morning. The volume was huge in that has a lot of traitors complaining why? Because traders want to see a tradable bottom. That's what they want. What is it going to be over? And they don't see the signs of it yet. They think the sentiment is still too positive a lot of them and they point to. The huge rally. We had that the s&p rose sixty points in the middle of the day. What the conventional wisdom is the economy is good. A lot of these stocks are oversold it washed out, and it's time to buy them. Well, these guys they won't send them in to be a lot more negative. They want the vix much higher. If not in the fifties. Like it wasn't February. Okay. At least in the mid thirties or higher. That's why most traders I talked today. Felt that today didn't settle anything that it was an indeterminate day. And I'd have to with them on that one having weekend Melissa about one question here on the home builder's the traders are upset because there was heavy volume on the upside in the in the home builder's, and we didn't see that wished to the downside in terms of Chilean. They want even more negative sentiment. Overall. They think people are now picking bottoms when the most beaten up groups like I said, just with the home builder's there and the automotive stocks and that this still to generically positive. Okay. There are the washed out now. Let's buy them. All right. They want. Nobody interested at all
