"You Tim you spent. You've alluded to the fact that you spend time as an engineer at companies like sybase in silicon graphics you spent four years as a CIO, of Kelly, ten core before nearly six and a half as the CIO facebook and I'm curious. You're part of a growing group those still a pretty elite one to go from the ranks of chief information officer to founding company and and and being the CEO of that company and I. You've alluded to some of the advantages of your time at facebook that you've incorporated into the lessons of it they the value of a great engineer, the the graphical way of of setting up technology here just as you did a facebook, etc the talk about the of of Cio we says, it was implemented by you. And the advantages of having held that position now as a CEO and founder. Well I, certainly in the business of a technology company and so having to to build a technology company to have some. Understanding or or death in technology, which clearly CIO's do because they're the center of it for their companies. But on the other side of the CIO role, which I think is directly relevant here is that. Business leaders much more than the these engineering receipts IOS. The CEO's job is to translate a business objective into a technology strategy whether that's making your company more efficient or helping to lead the digital transformation of that organization or minimize risk or some degree of all of the above optimize supply chain. Every company now has at least one, sometimes three or four critical business objectives that they need enabled through technology Ashworth, give to their CIO, and if they hired the right people, the CIO is leading the charge on that for the business. And that understanding of the business is been a key part of my success both as a CIO and now as A. CTO I'm I it's given me a very well rounded perspective having worked at K. La Facebook as a cio I understood the finance strategy of those businesses I understood You know what was the deal fees for every single acquisition that we did and what were the critical objectives that needed to be able to? Achieve those guilty sees what is the hiring strategy or the the service strategy? In the case of Kelly tencor and house at tied to the success of the business? Why is that important how it is automation technology feed into that understanding these different aspects of the business helped me be very, very well rounded as a leader and now then as a cio able to use a lot of these same skills to to run my own company. A fundraising his eerily similar to what it's like to go get funding as a CIO right have to go talk to people who have money and get them to willingly give it to you when they may not necessarily be predisposition when you walk in the door to do it a. so venture capitals are capitalist not that much different from. CFO, they want to see numbers they WANNA see business strategy they WANNA see that risk is mitigated. and. You know these are things that are really really well because we have to do it every year sometimes twice a year sometimes every quarter just keep our budgets flowing and You know another thing is when you get into a recruiting, it's sometimes hard especially at a company like facebook and even A. Company like Kelly Tinker. How do you attract the best talent into your organization? We got to tell a story that's compelling. Kelly tencor is not going to hire the best it people because it's going to pay them the most because that's not its business strategy. So you need to have another reason why you're gonNA work at Kelly in court the IT Department because we're doing some amazing things that nobody else has done before same thing on facebook I had a different problem if we were going after the best technical resources where we had a competitor inside the company who would. Be Willing to steal, which is the engineering department, and so rather than fight that we joined it and we said, let's just be better than many of them in telling a story of why it or engineering united facebook is actually. You know as interesting or more interesting than working on WHATSAPP or instagram. or a messenger, and so we get that, and so we became very good at appealing to things other than just the. You know the the basics of the job, the company name, and the salary. Right. What's splits the mission of this organization? Why's it important and we're doing the exact same thing it will. Be are hiring engineers were asking them to take a risk on the company with take some of their compensation in equity that or private Knows, what it's going to be valued. In in order to do that effectively. Good. At appealing to people's hearts. Not just their their minds and their intellect meant. So we've been good at that working with customers as very similar to what is like working with customers is the Idaho again, you have to influence them you have to understand what the problems are in, translate that into what is my product do you and so all those things are similar and I feel like the cio roles actually done a fantastic job preparing me for. The. Role. I'd say a couple things that. Are Ingredients in addition to that, which are mark character attributes. one is Know willingness to take risks. Some CIO's are in roles where that's kind of hard to do, and it doesn't necessarily reinforce that character attribute. I've always had that as who I am as an individual is led me to do things that have helped to my career but have also been uncomfortable and time Definitely, you gotTa have that in order to be. A. Ceo a startup key you to be willing to big big big scary wrist. you know and I think a second thing is is is courage. You know you takes courage to do that stuff..

"Well, we're in the midst of earning seasons and couple of blowups today, and we'll do the Markelle wrap in a few minutes. Not all blow ups are alike. And you ask the question. Why do somethings blow up when on bad news in some things? Don't I don't know. Thus armato. It's not the news ital- markets and things react to the news IBM announces earnings down five percent. Revenues down three gaps up eight nine ten points. And it's still hanging in there. Even on a bad day today is up. What do I know? J P Morgan MRs numbers. Gaps down rallies up. Follows through a little bit for PNC Bank. You never know. But today was a little bit different. Why we tell you not to play earnings roulette, and I'm always amazed. My industry loves going on TV to tell you. I would buy the hell out of this right before earnings, really. So they know what the earnings are going to be. They know what the guidance is going to be and they actually know how the reaction's going to be. In other words, bullcrap? So anyway, just to start you off Caterpillar. By the way, we're pre-tape in the show in the final hours. You know, as I've told you on occasion will have to do that. As we move phobe giving you most of the day, and we were already done our scans throughout the day. So we know where things are at. So those one person that wind and complained take a flying leap. Caterpillar is down twelve dollars and fifteen cents as we speak. The issue was not the earnings, but for this quarter believe it or not I believe the expectations were for like eleven point seven excuse me, twelve point nine billion for the court, and they're only do eleven seven. Eleven seven up to twelve something like that. Market. No likey. So, of course, caterpillars. What's? The Dow points. And affects deer deers down five some other these construction type names being affected all also. But not that done NVIDIA. Now NVIDIA has been a bear market. Anyhow. Stock was down. Before today about forty seven percent from the highs of October has rallied up, but nominally, let's down twenty two bucks. Their sales. Are going to be way down for the quarter. They're gonna announce at the end of January, so they pre-announce actually in mid February early February. So they preannounced horrible number stocks down twenty two was down about twenty eight. It's dead money. They blame China Caterpillar blames China just remember fits cold out. They blame the cold. If it's hot out, they blame the hot it's China now. So you blame China, that's how it goes. That interesting enough. Markets are getting hit. But way off the lows. Which is actually good news. But let me remind you. This week. Are you ready? Tomorrow before the open three AM Biogen. Corning Danner her this before the open in the Dow Pfizer and Verizon Harley Davidson ata healthcare SAP after the close more a little company name apple who by the way sales post to be down five six seven percent. Amgen advance Micro Devices. Robinson worldwide. That's in the transports, Kelly Tencor, maxim integrated products in the semis. Wednesday before the open Alibaba Boeing in the Dow McDonald's in the Dow that's going to be important Boeing's been like the strongest name in the Dow for awhile. And a few others after the close on Wednesday will be in the Dow Microsoft and visa, but also a little company named Facebook pay pal? Service now, tesla US steel wins resorts Thursday before the open DuPont. The Dow MasterCard UPS tractor supply a few others after the close on Thursday little company named Amazon Deckers outdoor Friday, get Chevron Exxon and Dow so it's gonna be quite the week. And we urge you. We urge you. Be patient. Don't try to be too much of a genius. You do not know which stocks gonna blow up do not know, which stocks gonna gap up. Louis important that you recognize that recognize what who's reporting what estimates are going to be. And then close your eyes hold your nose and pray. We don't know. We don't pretend to know what earnings are going to be like, and what the reaction's going to be weeded. No, Caterpillar would be down twelve we didn't know in video be down twenty three. We didn't know IBM would be up eight or nine or whatever the heck that was off their crappy numbers. Also, I believe the fed week. Yeah. So those idiots going to tell you what they think they do, you know, what they're going to tell you. How just give you the whole thing up front. With data dependent, and we can be patient, and we have tools if necessary that's all they're gonna say, they blinked. They did the one eighty they are kissing the butt of Trump and Mnuchin and the easy money gods again. And that's on them. Of course, we are heading towards possibly another government shutdown. By Valentine's Day. The president came out and said fifty fifty chance of another shutdown. Some politicians are trying to put in legislation. So there's never another shutdown ever again. We as the legislation on a balanced budget legislation. Whereas the legislation on term limits. We're waiting for that. And then there's the political crap Howard Schultz may be running for president as an independent. The left is having a stroke their veins popping out of their heads. Kamala. Harris, by the way, it's not Kamala Harris that telling me Kamala Harris is also running for president Xi at twenty thousand people. To come to her. I guess rolling out party. And of course, now, a Hillary Clinton has said she has not ruled out running for president either. So this is gonna be a hell of a two years. Oh, the GOP announced their backing Donald Trump furry reelection. Also. Are we having fun yet? Next up. We'll be five. And the rest. Up next full market movers at his as news. Lots more stuff today..
