NFL Bans Dwight Schar From Future Ownership Interest in Any NFL Team

"Minority owners coming in at some point, but he is the he is the sole owner after buying back the minority shares from Dwight Schar, Fred Smith and Bob Rothman. And what was a very contentious uh, I think And this is that I don't know if it's been publicly put out like this, But I think it was a takeover attempt by the minority owners who were looking for a greater evaluation on on their sale of their minority piece, and all of this negativity started to pop up. In the Washington Post started to pop up and and social media. These accusations were thrown out there, all of which, incidentally, Dan Snyder has claimed responsibility for even though he was not directly implicated in any of those things. Um, And the news today is twofold. One that Daniel Snyder is it was fined $10 million. At least the Washington football team was fined $10 million. The clarity on that is that $10 million will go to charities, which which Tania, his wife and Dan will choose. So it's a $10 million fine, but it'll all go to an important cause. The other thing. That I think is not insignificant in this is that Dang Dwight Schar, who was one of those minority owners, and a lot of people believed was involved in the smear campaign on on Daniel Snyder has been banned for life. From the NFL. So, uh, while we while we want to vilified, um some of the things that went on inside the Washington organization, the the campaign It was put out to embarrass and try to force. Mr Snyder to Snell also came to light and again, I'll read it, I'll say it again. Dwight Schar, who was a minority owner, has been banned for life from the National Football League. Take that of what you will. Um, but that's not the story. So a lot of people there's some misconceptions out

"I mean, I used to go thanks to go to the Meadowlands it season tickets. I mean that the Jazz that the Yankees World Series and 96 when they won for the first time since 1997 90 from 1919 78. When they wanted 96. I was behind home plate top level, but I was there and I was there. Like what? In the afternoon sucking down shots, it stands getting ready for our first championship. In decades Like I am a fan, and it has been it has been Don't say hard because at the end of the day talking sports is what motivates me right? And I haven't done local stuff in a long, long time, at least in New York, right, But it does feel nice for even if it's just even if its fleeting which I do not believe this will be fleeting. I believe with every fiber in my body that the Jets finally did something with a true vision with multiple layers to it. And as you look up on the screen, Look at that. I tweeted that on January 3rd Not about the Jets. The number one target for every team in the head coaching market should absolutely be rob Salalah, and there should be quite a bit of distance between the two superstar Now I thought my team had a chance to get him. But that was me from the purview of a of a national host. Like I was speaking to the Texans fans and the Lions fans and everything that you know all seven teams, the Jaguar favorite team that was looking for coach. It is just nice for once to not have to feel like I've gotta like, crawl out the side door like my team is completely inept and directionless. He hasn't even blown his whistle yet. I understand that and I'm not sitting here saying booked the parade, like some jet fans, which is nuts, got a lot of things to fix. They stink. But for the first time I want to say like I almost want to say in my lifetime for the first time in my life, I think I believe we'll know Parcells. I'm sorry. Parcels was was a different beast. But outside of the parcels arrival in 97. When he transformed the one and 15 team one in 15 to 97 like that. Had not felt this way. I like term. I really like term. I liked Rex, but that Jets team back in the first the first year they got to the championship game. Granted, it was fun, but we got there. The reason they one week, 17 is because Peyton Manning didn't play and wasn't do Think Curtis painter for the Colts played and the Jets one of the back door did this I did with 13 and three And they Oh, yeah, We're supposed to be here They were middling team pretty much same thing the next year. Good defense, That's better. It is just nice to just join. What feels like a party. It has been a party that I have not been invited to it a long time and it's nice to be in for a little bit. Honestly, It's not that I'm happy for you. And I'm happy for Jets fans for for for the non Jets fans that are listening to this show. Here's the larger picture because this this incorporates everybody that it's potentially being hired right now. Arthur Smith notwithstanding, actually Arthur Smith, probably as well, even though he's like, you know, he is viewed as an architect and offensive architect and Genius, the idea and I'll put this in quotes that you gotta hire the guru is going by the wayside. It worked with Sean McVeigh in Los Angeles for the Rams, Matt negative, not necessarily still on some others. It doesn't always work what we're starting to see and you see this with urban Meyer and Jacksonville. It's definitely see this with Rob Sala in New York. Even though he is a very good defensive coach. It's not about him being a defensive guru. You're going to see this with Arthur Smith, who most people know is Fred Smith son Fred Smith, who owned FedEx. He doesn't have to do this Do Jack for the rest of us the life he worked his ass off to be as good as he is that what he is, and he's not a guru in anything except for hard work. And then you're gonna see this potentially with my former teammate and now assistant with the New Orleans Saints, Dan Campbell, who is likely going to get the Detroit Lions job. It's not about the guru. It's about and we've been saying that For months. Money is about the leader of men find the guy who can command a room and lead men and fortunately, the NFL went through this short term. Nonsense of finding this great term and hiring that guy, and now they're going Maura with what works, as opposed to what is is trendy for the moment so well, congrats, the Jets fans and congrats to I think the Jets players as well. I think they finally have some Some confidence and the guy that's going to lead him and Rob Sala who will eventually be my neighbor will get on this show because I'm right here in foreign park, so hopefully we get him on the show Soon Now we will, but I'm looking. I'm looking forward to this. Me too. I'm working an angle with Joe Douglas. So we will definitely get Jets representation on this show. All right, Speaking of leading.

He hasn't accepted yet, And I noticed that Arthur Blank was trending on Twitter. So I was wondering what was going on and why he was trending. And it turns out that Arthur Smith's dad, Fred Smith, Is the owner of FedEx sitting now I believe is the owner of the CEO. Thanks to CEO. It says he's the FedEx founder. Okay, he's the founder. And by the way, you say, turns out I happened to have known this for years, but go ahead. Well, apparently Fred Smith is worth $5.4 billion in our blankets and Arthur Blank. It's worth $5.3 billion. So people are thinking that the only reason Arthur Blank is hiring Arthur Smith to be the new head coach is because he wants to add FedEx to his empire 00 and he'll get cheaper rates. You were telling me he'll get cheaper rates toe What does he need to live like nails?

"If you're unable to sell an interest in an NFL team right now, and I get it during the pandemic, it's tough, But this has been going on for a while. And it doesn't help either. When the red Stian Redskins just stink on the field as well, you know, I want you to know something. I really believe Fred Smith and and he does have a lot of money. Good narcotic pennies here. Or change. There's no doubt in my mind if he wanted to. He could probably make a couple calls also with Jerry Jones or somebody like that say, Hey, we want to buy the team from Dan Snyder. This guys, you know, maybe he's embarrassing everybody on who knows if they would not be a special closed door meeting TTO make a move to see if there was any supported. And if you should sell the team or not, you know Oh, and Pete in Oakland, by the way, has been all over this you, Hugh might you might remember he was the guy that kind of started floating these theories out here last week whenever we were talking about it, But he just tweeted the show and said, Thank you for your support of my new career as an undisclosed source formerly familiar with the situation. Frederick Smith is using a ruse of selling while he raises money to buy out Snyder and you were asking about his net worth Arnie Smith's net worth. Is north of $1.3 billion more then Daniel Snyder. That's pretty good. When you think that 1.3 Bill more Pete, you are now the official insider. For Arne and Plank on Fox Sports Rate. That's a lot of money. Wow, so and so I got. I got to go back to something else here because this is going to be a big story tonight. We'll talk to Todd Foreman about it next hour. You didn't find yourself all tuned in to the Eagles concert site on ESPN, you know, went all in on that. No. I was listening to the B G's on my computer while before the show. I'm sorry I I legit It's and I'm not here to make fun of anyone for their numbers are the ratings. It's such a hard time with with no sports going on, But we have mastered some technology to do live shows from your home. It takes a little work. You're you're working three times as hard to do Jobs that were, you know, five minutes. Back in the day is just so much is going into it. But this was an Eagles concert from two years ago, so I don't know. I mean, I get I read the press release sports and music of long minute the top of the list for being able to bring people of all types together, but not the Eagles man. And I was Chris. Berman introduced him and I was I was watching it and I kept thinking Is this a commercial? Sometimes You'll be hearing a song on the radio exist commercial. They're coming back. I legit on. He thought it was a commercial. I thought it was a commercial for some sort of male enhancement. New pill. They're goingto have out but I get it. We're in tough times right now. When it comes to programming, I mean, I was watching a ball game between Houston And Hawaii when Timmy Chang wasn't quarterback. Oh, my goodness. You went way back there and and there's one on right now. I think between BYU and Hawaii I guess today is the ula ble. But I mean, the Eagle's already I mean, I know we're in tough times. But do we have to go back to years? I have ESPN on right here, and I was learning what the hell was going on. Even know now, that's not to say. That's not to say that it didn't have its fans. Travis hit us up on Twitter right as we went on the air and said the Eagles concert. Arnie was the best thing on that network in years. Someone had to tell me it was on being I rarely watch that channel. Now for some good sports talk. Would you prefer you anti Eagles, though? Would you have preferred another band? There was something like that. Is that what you man? MTV doesn't even show conflicts anymore. I mean concerts. I don't know how to say this concerts on TV stank. No fun. I mean, the joy of a concert is being there. They have access tries to play concerts on TV Austin lights. That's just It's not the same, and I get it so much all well. Sports and on TV might know. Sports actually makes a show out of it. A dude playing a concert is a dude playing a concert. There is nothing more than they do for it on the TV, Sam. It's been a long time since I've been to a concert. It was back in Phoenix. I saw like one of those three bands. Was the Thompson Twins, Madness and the police. Wait. Your last concert you went to was the Thompson twins. A minute wonder madness. Our house. In the middle of what was this, like Thompson twins was hold me now, but it was me.

"J P. Thank you so much for joining us. Here's what we know. FedEx has formally asked the Redskins to change their nickname. And now we've seen Nike pull Redskins merchandise off their website. So when you go in the search bar and you put in the Redskins, no search results come up for it. How J. P Did we get to this point? Yeah. I mean, this is a long time kind of burning issue, at least locally in Washington that I think you know when the Redskins were good kind of bubbles up to a national issue. And it has been going on. I'm a native DC guy that this conversation going on my own life. But I think the events in in our country starting with George Ford's murder in May Have a kind of magnified the issue, and I think there's some so much so many efforts toward eradicating No historic usages of Racist or prejudice terms to try to finally create equality that You know the Redskins name as has always been there and it I think that Formally asked the team to change their name. That is the biggest development really, ever. A Zafar is getting this name changed, and it's more than just a sponsor. Is obviously better. Only remaining rights where the Redskins player home games at FedEx Field. And that pays the team about eight million a year. I had one league sources tell me that runs through 2025. But it's more than that. The CEO and president of FedEx is a guy named Fred Smith. Fred Smith is very close with Dan Snyder and Fred Smith is a part owner. He owns a small state in the Redskins is part of the ownership so This is someone inside the organization asking for the name to change, and that is just a huge, huge deal. With J P. You couple that with Nike, not recognizing the Washington Redskins att, always an NFL franchise on any of their merchandise. Throughout their website. It almost feels like we really are on the precipice of this happening now. My question is, and I thought you did a wonderful job in your recent article, and just also using the Washington Pole where it was like what 500 some odd native Americans that were pulled on whether or not the Redskins name is racist or whatnot. J. P. This is all a long way of me getting Tio. How do they view this word? The Redskins Because I feel like every time I read something, I'm more confused. It's hard. It's it's not as cut and dry as its seeds, and the pole was actually conducted by the Washington Post. In 2016 and at that point, the name issue was was really becoming a very, very hot topic in D. C and the Washington boat has come out. Multiple times against the name publicly their editorial board and they conducted the survey that many thought was kind of gonna be the hammer of you Gotta change it Look. Att, the surveys results. The results were or the opposite. Their results. Were not 1990% of Native Americans pulled Found the name to be full and honoring their history. And so when that happened it at least here, they see it was like Whoa! So You know, 90% of Native Americans actually appreciate this name. We can't ask them to change it. And I can say on a personal anecdotal level. I mean, I'm a beat reporter. I go to every game. I mean, all these cities. I have been At cities in Seattle, in particular, where there was a number of native Americans walking around wearing handmade Um, necklaces off the Redskins logo, but then I've also been in cities in Minnesota last year. When there was a couple 100 native Americans protesting outside of the Viking Stadium when the Redskins were playing so issue It's hard to know. I don't know how this name makes Native Americans feel and I don't know that there's one picture for our native Americans feeling. I think it's a complex issue for them. I just think Imagine Nike. Nike and fed the other titans of industry. That is absolutely You're talking tens of millions of dollars and I don't know. Be kind of curious kind of the legal contractual.

I don't know how all of that is going to work. At some point, the lawyers were going to get heavily involved. You have familiar. The timeline for this 2016 Washington Post poll was a big Have to say win but a big swing in kind of the emotion ofthe Will the name changed or not, but entire, was quoted in the USA Today's story by five or six years ago where, he said the name will never change. Never put it in all caps, and that Quote has always kind of been underlying. Hey, no matter what happens, insider owns this scene and have to make this decision. I know. I mean, The organisation employs smart people. There are people that understand what is happening in the country right now, and you know, statues getting worn down. All sorts of things are happening all the time, and you don't want to be On the long side of that, and I just I don't know. Basically in the past, the team has just kind of written out the storm. And then you know if we get back to football, and people start talking about caramel corn and Dwayne Haskins instead of the T name Maybe it all kind of goes away. I just don't know that this this storm you could work out, especially if your sponsors started pulling out. I'm glad you mentioned up his quote and the all caps he also dance. Snyder, the owner of the Redskins has come out multiple times said. Look, we're supporting the name by saying hail to the Redskins. Braves on a warpath fight for old D C, but To your point when it comes to the bottom line. Is this the necessary pressure? And I'm not also commending FedEx and Nike in this instance, either because they got pressured by Wall Street investment firms worth a combined 620 billion. Before they went to the Washington Redskins. So they're feeling the pressure from capital as well. But is this enough in your mind for dance cider to go back on his words of such a strong quote of the name will never change. I don't know. And you know, Snyder is a very strong personality and a strong willed person, and he's dug his heels in on other things know nothing of this magnitude, but other things where it seems like The organization would be better off. Doing something else, and they just stay the course so I don't know. I can't imagine the pressure has ever been harder Results of this wrinkle to consider too. So the wretches play that experience that's in Landover, Maryland, folks not familiar with the area planned over inside the Beltway. It's probably about two miles, probably from the D. C line. It's close in. At the stadium stinks. The parking thing. The public public transit access their stinks. It's just it's a bad dating. Snyder didn't build it. He bought it, and it kind of got stuck with it. But he seemed very publicly wants a new stadium. The dishy areas comprised of D C. Maryland and Virginia..

The Bullish Take on FedEx

The Bullish Take on FedEx

"Gentlemen. We're going to kick off this sort of I ever edition of trader versus trader. Tim Round one goes to you. The bullish take on Fedex. And we're not friends right now. Let's be clear. I want a piece of Dan. So here we go. I I want to talk a little bit about The way markets are trading right. Now first of all we are seeing value plays Fedex's evaluation if I WANNA make value Danielson value trap. But it's certainly trading historical evaluation trough. That's one part of this growth valuation trough on the other side. The more important here what's the catalyst for Fedex? It's absolutely this integration of using express to complete the final ground that is a massive cost savings. You could make an argument. This is now ten percent of EPS. If you look towards twenty twenty one which is when you'll start to see. These people have been waiting for Fred Smith to wake up and actually begin to do this. There's other callous. Also you're gonNA see less of an overhang from TNT. You're going to see jet fuel prices. That are actually a benefit to them the Amazon overhang channels and cycles out by the second half of two thousand twenty one finally I think Dan. I totally disagree on this. But if you look at this chart I actually think Fedex after a year and a half of essentially going through a base but certainly for the last nine months somewhere around this one forty level. I actually think you've started to see. The stock began to take off here now. This is now finally above the two hundred day right in here. It's been trading above the two hundred moving day average for the first time for the longest time than it has in the last nine months or so. I think the stocks actually breaking out. Okay Dan. You're the bear. Give us the case. Here's not came out. Here'S THE PROBLEM. So Tim just said somewhere around the one forty level will. The stock is trading somewhere above the one sixty level. So I think about this a little differently here. Here's a company that's had a whole host of problems over the last year and a half or so. They range from slowing global growth. Strong dollar trade. War didn't really help them out. Some of those competitive issues that Tim sees as catalysts in a year. I see as a problem near term and see a problem for their earnings power and I actually agree with him. I think that there's probably one more bad guy down when they got it. Down in December analysts took a slashing to twenty twenty and twenty twenty one. I have one more quarter like that. The other thing is about the competition. We know that that that headline about Amazon pulling that last mile stuff the residential delivery is a problem for this company right now the skew right now between business to business is residential is not working out for them and I think there needs to be some restructuring. He said Fred Smith. Finally I love Fred Smith. He invented this industry. He'll get it right but my whole point in the near term and this is why. I want to go to the technicals here when they report next month. I think you're going to have another guy down. I think you're have another slash guidance and I look at this chart. I like to draw lines. Tim just to eyeball things that is a. I mean one of the most well-defined down. Reggie to ask by being manned Carter would say to the petty to the Penny Penny. That's the one year chart. Let's go to the five year chart. There's your downtrend here's your support that he's talking about down there at one forty. That's twelve percent away. People and I see an air pocket down to one twenty. I think if you see a guy down analysts cut those numbers you see the stock down ten fifteen percent. That's what you buy

General Mills Unhealthy Returns

"I'm Matt Greer and joining me is motley, fool, unless wrong gross Ron, it is just you and me in a word. How would you describe how you're feeling right now? So excited I could barely contain myself. Okay. Okay. Always happy to be here with you MAC. Well, good. Well, I'm excited to later. We're gonna talk some net flicks. They're losing the office. If you heard of the office show boy, my kids love them, some office, as do mine, and effective twenty twenty one the office will no longer be on Netflix. We'll talk about that. We're also gonna talk about some FedEx. But let's begin with a rough day for general mills shares down around five percent at the time of our taping on earnings. Ron disappointing revenue weakness in their US snacks business. Now, a lot of us when we think general mills we think cereal and, you know, the cereal cereal sales. In line with last year hanging in there. But they're not just cereal. They've got a number of brands everything from Haagen-Dazs to yo play to pet food, but they are running into this trend of consumers eating healthier, tough go, you got it. You know, it's interesting actually even with today's drop the stock was up twenty five twenty six percent on the year. I would not have guessed that if you'd asked me to, to kind of predict how the stock has done this year. So that was surprising to me, but you nailed it. It's, it's everyone's growing preference for healthier, breakfast and snacking options. It's hit all the companies Kellogg, wand, Elise Kraft Heinz. It doesn't matter who you are certainly general mills is, is not immune to that net sales organic net sales that's important in North America. Fell two percent. That sounds healthy though. That's our Ganic but importantly, because of their attempt to diversify and specifically the blue buffalo pet food company they bought last year. Total sales was actually up seven percent and they saw thirty percent increase in the blue. Buffalo pet business. So diversifying is is working. But obviously they want to grow some of their brands continue with some of their healthier brands a focus on Haagen-Dazs. Interestingly, not so healthy old, El Paso, Mexican their portfolio of natural and organic foods and their snack bars. They're, they're really trying to kind of focus on growing those businesses. So I think the question that everyone wants to know is where does this leave bugles because they I love entry, hopefully, you know, if you love you have you ever had. Carmel bugles. Oh, I don't think so. But when I was a kid, it was one of the most satisfying things to buy the bag of bugles. And then you pretend that they are, in fact, bugles, right? Let alone the child you needed Ave. Clearly. That was just salt and a bag. Why they were so good, crunchy salt and event is true in shockingly, not doing as well today with the health conscious consumer. So let's talk a bit more about the stock because as you mentioned, the stocks had a great last year beating the market. But it's lost to the market over the last five years and shares now trading below where they were five years ago and fun fact still outperforming Kellogg. Yeah. With wolf. Wolf wolf ESO? What's the bull case for general mills? The bull case, I think, is that they're going to continue to diversify through acquisitions, but that's dicey because that, that bull case also has a barriques right around the corner. It's tough to do aquisitions correctly. You wanna make sure you pay the right price. You might make sure you go into the correct areas, I think, part of the strength of general mills over lasts a bunch of months was partly the result of the diversification strategy. Blue buffalo being one the investors seemed to be excited about. But it's tough. I mean, the stocks. Our trading around sixteen times, not just Errol mills. But a lot of these companies, and there's a reason for that. And the reason is, is a lot of uncertainty going forward, and we'll probably still see weakness for some time until they kind of get their product portfolio straightened out. Okay. Ron and as we wrap up here looking back on your cereals, and they don't have to general mills that can be Kellogg, and they can be. But how about some favourite serials by far knock, Chem crabbing crunch is one of my favorites with crunch berries? No without contributes, actually. But foodie, pebbles are just unbelievably yes, love. Overrated. My guy was the Flintstones market. No. It was just the made. The milk fruity fruity ish. You let them get a little soggy of I gotta go. I might have to have them today. Okay. Let me hit you as some of my favorites and tell me how you come down apple jacks, boring. But my wife loves it really is fruit loops. Yeah. Like pretty pebble. Cousin count chocula now to chocolate for me to shot. Are you kidding? Get here is one of my favorites this was a sleeper frosted mini. We have it written down right here on my extra. So I wouldn't forget to mention it if you let them get a little bit Sigy fantastic. And you feel like you're eating wheat. So how bad could it be? Oh my gosh. And one of my truly favorites and I had probably a six to seven year relationship, it was a monogamous relationship here. Think about you needing a hobby, ready ready, golden grams. Oh, they're the Golden Globes are good for sure. I mean harsh their magic. It's a shame that cereal has, has gone, the way of the dodo bird because it's delicious, obviously, it's unhealthy. And that's why but even granola is delicious and milk. Everything is good. The for I'm gonna hit you with three over. Rated cereals. And you tell me if you agree ready? Yeah. Weeds god. Yes. They'll terrible Rice Krispies. They do crack snap, crackle, and pop feeling fun far after that, it's like, okay. And then Cheerios. Yeah. Oh my God. Like eating cardboard. Yeah. Honey nut Cheerios are okay. And then the one and then one more name. I wrote you get this on those other one more one more name. I wrote down and the word or the phrase, I have written by it is. I'm not dead yet. His grape nuts. I always when I was a kid I always associated grape nuts with like being older. And now that I'm older, I still associate with being have to be like, eighty to enjoy the exact. Yes. So I've got a few more years, but I'm looking forward to okay? Let's move on, after that hard hitting analysis. Let's move onto FedEx stock not doing much on earnings. Ceo, Fred Smith said trade disputes, and an economic slowdown have created quote significant uncertainty for FedEx express, Ron. Also facing stiff competition from UPS and Amazon as well. What do you think of FedEx earnings, the earnings are okay, but it's, it's the forward guidance about US China trade tensions, they forecast, a mid single digit percentage, point decline in adjusted earnings for fiscal twenty twenty investors. Don't like to see that, that I can tell you as far as this quarter adjusted revenue up two point eight percent operating income down seven percent though, negatively affected by lower package and freight revenues at FedEx express higher costs at FedEx ground cost associated with their US-based voluntary. Employment played by out the, the are voluntarily retiring, lots of employees there to cut costs. There was some strength though, US volume growth was up increased revenue per shipment at FedEx freight and FedEx ground some, some favorable incentive compensation expense. Decline. So there, there were some offsetting positives. But overall, you know, you don't wanna see a company like FedEx an operating income decline. And let's talk about the competition. Because when you look at FedEx when you look at the stock shares have lost to the market over the last year and they've lost to the market over the last five years, but they're still beating ups, okay? If you want to feel better, if you're go hang out with UPS right, but it seems like increasingly you've got traditional competitors like ups, but you also have the Amazons the Uber's you have anyone with a car who may essentially contract their time and their services out to a bigger company to deliver. How does FedEx compete with that, while you're seeing that it's tough? And you're seeing that in the stock price, they're doing things like making it more convenient for folks to drop off and pick up packages of perfect. Example would be. They just said, they're going going to create drop off and pickup sites at dollar generals, eight thousand stores what that does it puts ninety percent of the US population close to a FedEx full footprint of some kind. So they're trying to make it as convenient as possible their severed ties with Amazon for their express delivery service, the, they're making strategic moves, and sometimes. Difficult move, because as you say, it's very competitive landscape out there in Ron before we get to our next story. I want to say thanks to net suite now we know here at the motley, fool that if you don't know your numbers. You don't know your business, but the problem that growing businesses have the thing that keeps them from knowing their numbers is this Hodge podge of business systems. It's just a mess. You've got a system for accounting. You've got another one for sales. You've got another one for inventory. Yikes. It's so incredibly inefficient takes up a lot of time sucks up way too many resources and Ron, that's where net suite by oracle comes in.

So we can really let you know who you work for. Trey number. He just pulled that out of you know, some place and fifty two percent is meant to just make people feel bad because you know, no matter how hard you work that you're not even gonna get half. You're always going to have to give a little bit more to the government. It works, right? It works. Percent fifty two. No, no fifty two percent. Fifty two percent. So you work a forty hour week nineteen hours of it goes to you the rest goes to the US government. So you pay your fair share don't even get half. Don't even get half. You we expect you to go to work and work your ass off. And then you're gonna give us almost more than half of it because that's paying your fair. Share?

I have two hundred twenty five that heavy momentum grade of b plus or better that's a great trading list to look through because you get stocks from all walks of life on that momentum less that is in my app. If you go to the stock section, a look at the top a plus or better momentum screen, and it will list, those two twenty twenty-five stocks today that have eight plus or better. Momentum grades. Well, we had again stocks were in the red yesterday before the big announcement. Fedex did not help the market yesterday. You know, we're getting mixed signals. In fact, I sent out a couple of opposing push notifications yesterday to my life trading subscribers. I I said look good oil it's but sixty dollars per barrel. Oil is a barometer oil is a measuring stick for what the world what the oil traders think of the global economy, and it moved above sixty dollars for the first time in a long time yesterday. But at the same time, you have the CEO of a FedEx Fred Smith saying, you know, what there's a global slowdown taking place right now. Well, maybe FedEx is not to create global barometer that it once was but the market definitely thinks it is it was selling off. And then of course, you have the bond market, which is also kind of saying, you know, what this economy is pretty slow. You could also use as evidence the fact that the fed was so dovish now Jerome. Powell would not have been that dovish. If he saw a strong economy and one that was gathering strength, the one that was accelerating. So he's kind of sending a message out there too. That you know, this economy can't really take any more interest rate hikes right now, we're just going to back off and see where things land. Well, the market also likes that. Because again, you can take the fed out of the picture right now. So really the two big worries are watching that global economy number one. And number two. I think the global economy is definitely being impacted by the tariffs that President Trump has slapped on China, and the trade war that continues. Yesterday was another reason why the market was shaky. President Trump said the tariffs on Chinese goods could remain for a long period of time. Of course, he says that so China can hear it, you know, it's all part of this negotiating process. And that you know, we're going to I guess we're sending lighthizer and Mnuchin and the eighteen once again to Beijing here, but those trade talks it almost seems to me like China is trying to. Wait, it out delay postponed until maybe have someone else to deal with two years from now. That that that that's my own impression. I haven't heard a lot of people saying that. But I think they're playing the delay game like basketball you got to lead. The you don't want change you just pass the ball around. And you go into a stall. Right. Well, it might be a little bit of that going on China is willing to play the long game. And they may be just delaying and playing games until they have someone else to deal with on the other side of the table. Of course, it could be Mr. Trump two years from now. Well, the banks were battered yesterday. Let's just pull up a Bank. Let's pull up Bank of America, which is a soggy stock look at that thing get clobbered yesterday clobbered again today down one point five percent. I just don't think that the Bank sector is a very good growth sector. I think there's a lot of disrupters out there to the Bank. Sector set just pay pal and square. So for that reason, I have I do not have any exposure to the banking sector. But you know, what there's a lot of people that have soggy stocks in their portfolio, and they've got city group, and they've got Wells Fargo and they've got Bank of American J P Morgan. They're just not very good growth stocks. And it's not a very good sector in the market right now. Banks do not like low interest rates banks need some wiggle room. Right now, there's very little wiggle room. In the in the interest rate environment, the whole financial sector. In fact, XL f was down one point two percent. That's a financial ETF the banking ETF yesterday. KRAS's a good proxy. They're down one point seven percent yesterday. And that's pressuring at pressures their margins at the banks. We have our Thursday economic report initial jobless claims, I hope one of them was not you initial jobless claims for two hundred twenty one thousand that's still extremely low two hundred and twenty five thousand was the consensus the jobs picture in America continues to be very very strong. In fact, I believe chairman Powell in his note yesterday in his press conference said that he thinks that the unemployment rate will bottom out here. Sometime later this year at about three point seven percents job market, very tight. It is pushing wages up for the first time in a long time. And again, those initial jobless claims come out today too. Hundred and twenty one thousand I haven't seen the leading indicators. I'm very interested of all the reports that come out on the economy. I think if you're going to name the top three or four the index of leading indicators, the L E I is in that top three or four, and I'll be watching for that sometime after the show it'll be in the newsletter this week. We got a big IPO is leave is a growth company these days. Or is it a soggy stock Levi's?.

"How come? Join Jennifer garner. Matthew Broderick John Oliver. Paul Thompson, Ken, John? He. You're embarrassing in the most hilarious animated comedy of the year. Critics are raving about wonder park. Pizza's great family, ride, the most fun. You'll have this year. Great day. Bring it down Ganda wunderbar. Dining suggested in theaters March fifteenth, I'm at Harld, founder of the kindness revolution. I was told a story years ago by an executive in FedEx the executive was given an assignment by the CEO FedEx Fred Smith after the instructions Smith added do at the FedEx way, the executive went on to say that he didn't have to ask what that meant. He knew it meant to do it with the dignity and class that defines the culture of FedEx to this day. This story makes me wonder how the majority of employees would respond if their boss asked them to do a task the way we do it around here. What would that message mean to the employees would it mean to do the task quickly with little regard for getting it done correctly? Would it mean to complete the job as cheaply as can would include the behavior of kindness and respect in politics? It's all about the economy in business. It's all about the culture. And if you're not sure what the culture is in your business. You have a problem. Learn more check us out at the kindness revolution dot net. Talks WJR.

"Fedex she's experiencing strong growth in the US where the economy remained solid. However, our international business, especially in Europe, we can significantly since we last talk with you. During our earnings call in September. In addition, China's economy has weakened due in part to trade disputes as a result FedEx is laying out a series of cost cutting measures, including voluntary employee buyouts limits and staff hiring cutting back on bonuses and other variable comp reducing network capacity and cutting back on discretionary spending, the company already expecting to take a half billion dollar charge for US based employees on those buyouts on top of any international employees that get bought out as well.
