"macy" Discussed on CNBC's Fast Money

"Free cash flow generation, it's an attractive idea. The market is skeptical. The multiple of Macy's being 7 to 8 times PE. It's very low. And it's not getting a digital multiple, which is one to two times sales. So it's TBD in terms of conviction and what the company can do. Our overall thesis calls for the digitization of Macy's and Macy's really acting with speed and more like an ecommerce retailer. This is an interesting question. Can you and should you separate the two? Part of this is time horizon part of this is execution. And part of this is really understanding what kind of decisions you have to make, which would be quite complex and splitting businesses. The future of retail in our opinion is physical plus digital. Can you separate them? Should you separate them? It's a short term versus long-term decision as well. Oliver, thank you. Oliver Chan. How? Tim I'll go to you. I mean, it does seem like an extremely complicated relationship to sort of extricate. I mean, if you have, for instance, a sale that's made in online and then brought to the store. I mean, presumably there would have to be Oliver mentioned service agreements because that store is going to send back the merchandise for the online to process. It's complicated. It's not, this is not an easy thing to do. And that's what Ed Oliver's pointing out, and I don't think he's suggesting that it should happen. In fact, it's that complimentary nature of the hybrid multiple that you want to see Macy's get, which is look at what Walmart's doing. That is core to a thesis I have on a long position in Walmart, or how about target? Give Oliver credit, by the way, he didn't just upgrade the stock today or yesterday. He also, he's been upgrading this stock. He upgraded the stock 6 or 8 weeks ago. And he was pointing out that digital penetration is going to be 42 43% out in a couple of years. So talking about this core business. So a lot of folks have gotten excited about Macy's. But I do think that this call is something that he's had out there for a while. And part of it is also just a sum of the parts and looking at 7 bucks a share on real estate and looking at a dividend that no one thought that they could pay, so that dividend yield is actually something you don't buy the stock for, but it's certainly something that protects your downside. Guy quick on Macy's. It's interesting, I think in summer 2018, it was a $40 stock. I mean, I don't think it gets there and Pete probably knows this a lot better than I do, but this sounds like one that if you're getting paid enough to sell upside calls against an existing position, you do it all day long. I think if this gets to 32, which is the price target you just mentioned, I think you take the money and run. Coming.

"Welcome back to fast money. Macy's shares ripping 13% in the past week. This comes a speculation heats up over a potential spin off of its digital business. Cowan boosting its Macy's price target to $32 from $27 a share. And if an ecommerce spin off becomes a reality, the firm sees a stock going even higher. Oliver China's cowan's senior retail analyst, Oliver, great to have you with us. Thanks for having me. Are you basically saying that after the spin off Macy's, the brick and mortar part of the business will be worth much, much more? Yeah, Melissa, the ecommerce business is worth as much as one to two times sales or more. That yields a stock price of $40 plus. We don't necessarily think it's spin off as imminent. However, our note really lays up these different scenarios in which the ecommerce business is very undervalued relative to how Macy's is trading currently. So Macy's is training overall at .5 times sales. As we look at ecommerce businesses and comparable companies, they trade at one or more time sales multiples. So this is entirely possible and is being analyzed, however, there are a lot of risk factors and separating the two businesses will not be easy. They will have to go over hundreds of service agreements as well. Customer acquisition occurs across both channels. And clearly the customers on omnichannel, behaving and shopping in both digital and physical. And thanks for coming on. I'm sort of confused. Is it possible that the rest of Macy's with the debt with the bricks and mortar and maybe some of them under scale is actually worth negative depending on how they divide up the ecommerce sales? Yeah, that is part of the interesting story here because the rest of the business, the physical side of the business, we model declining three to 4%. And at the same time, we model the digital business growing 9 to 11%. So thinking about us some of parts clearly evaluation will be lower on a negative business, but it's also a little bit of art and science and.

Is There A BigBox Retail Opportunity for eCommerce Sellers?

"The first major question. I've got ask you then is the dumb question. The that is nevertheless anyone is in e commerce and they kind of self identifies an ecommerce seller or whatever. Why even bother with that old school offline brick and mortar world. Isn't it just dying especially under cove. It is even an opportunity anymore. No it's a dining whole. There's a lot of talks about the retail apocalypse. And i've been hearing this for like almost decade but there is no apocalypse and it never happened. And it's not going to happen. Let me explain as of today. The numbers are showing statistics. Not what i think what. I see statistics from everyone. Can google that that your first of all the three hundred twenty thousand physical stores in the states. Which is i mean people. When won't win. They wanna say something big talk about millions but when you talk about not billions three hundred thousand stores. This is like a huge number huge huge number huge potential. That's number one number. Two moving forward be numbers. Amazon is still between ten to eleven percent of the out of the retail marketing. The state's not the online market the whole retail market and wants to know and understand that this data you know that does like another ninety percents that your products are most probably not being exposed to and this ninety percent is built from. I divided too few blocks. It's easier for me to see that way. But brick and mortar is just one block. It's a huge block but it's one block now inside the brecon motor. You have like discounters. You have high end meat and a big boxes. You have different different kinds of companies. If you look at macy's they have more than eight hundred stores. If you look at the small retailer like Vollmar thirty six stores. But if you look at big with tj maxx. They have four thousand stores. Cvs has almost ten thousand stores when talking about you know. They're big companies. These company's needs products to sell now before we go to the products. And so this is one block okay. It's divided inside of your sleep. This is like the retail. What what you call old school and this old school exist. There's still you know teachers and students and everything. It's it's still sending something very good. Whatever you do does no you know. There's no way to change the fact that going on on shopping with friends with wife with the with the kids or whatever it is is like an experience. You know it's like having fun. It's a part of something it's not just going. They're buying it and that's it so a lot of people you know especially in the states they would. They would by amazon nobody. There's no no doubt about it and they would buy on the other like online platforms but the brick and mortar is not going anywhere. It's you know it's something that's gonna last.

The Long History of Credit

The Long History of Credit

"Idea of credit has a very long history. the code of hammurabi one of the oldest systems of laws in the world has sections on how to deal with credit it put maximum interest rates on loans of grain and silver credit. Was something that was usually done in a very personal basis. The ability to extend credit to someone was dependent upon your relationship with them and your trust in them. In fact the word credit comes from middle french and it was originally used to mean belief or faith. If you extend credit to someone it is literally a belief in the ability of that person to pay you back. This is the way the credit worked for centuries. An individual store would extend credit to individual customers based on their relationship and trust this sort of system might still exist someplace like a pub or a bar where regular might a tab that they pay at the end of the month. The system of individual lines of credit being established for individual customers by individual businesses was very inefficient. The process of making credit more efficient was begun in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries with major department stores like macy's wanamaker's their wealthiest customers didn't wanna handle money directly so they were given paper cards or brass tokens that they could present at checkout. The cashier would then make note of the purchases and a customer would then get a statement at the end of the month. This form of credit wasn't intended to be alone. Like many credit cards are today. The amount had to be paid in full at the end of every month. What this system had over previous systems is that the individual cashier didn't need to know the person who presented the token the store would issue the token and any employee could then accept it in one thousand nine hundred eighty five. The charger plate system was unveiled by the charger plate. Group out of new york. It was a rectangular metallic plate. That was about the size of a dog tag and like a dog tag. It had embossed letters showing the name and address of the customer. In most cases the metal plates were kept at the store rather than enhance the customer. They were then pulled out when the customer made a purchase. This certainly made processing paperwork. Easier and again. It wasn't advance but the system still only worked at a single store.

Big Retail Is Watching You

"So rebecca. How does this technology work in. What's it used for so the basic premise of a lot of retail companies using facial recognition in stores they say is to track shoplifters so essentially what happens is they have their security cameras. It's picking up information about people's faces and essentially these companies are coming up with watch lists for people they don't think should be allowed in the store. And when people enter the i like runs their face against the database and flags it to the store beyond the sort of application of tracking shoplifters. There's also concern that. This technology is being used or abused in the future to sell them ads or track their shopping habits collecting data about them and making predictions. There's a whole other element that they're concerned about two. Which is that. This technology is sort of implicitly tracking all the employees who work in these stores as well. So there's a real question of data privacy and what you're accepting when you just walk into a store so it's a little bit like that technology in the movie minority report where tom cruise walks into the gap and they try to sell them a certain pair of khakis komodo welcome back to the how those assorted tank tops for you right which stores have been using this technology so one of the stores that has openly said they're using facial recognition technology is macy's which recently confirmed they use it and like i said earlier they say it's a security method to deal with that and shoplifting in stores but there are other companies that have been accused of using facial recognition or collecting biometric data in lawsuits. Sometimes these big retailers deny it. And that's part of why activists think it's really important that we need transparencies and law requiring companies to disclose when they're collecting this type of data us and even a reason to ban facial recognition stores entirely

Are You a Shock-Absorber in Relationships?

Are You a Shock-Absorber in Relationships?

"And we know shock absorbers in caused to absorb the bumps and things that when you're when you drive across the bump with something horrors and shake and chat and the bid of the shock. Absorption more comfortable the dry and so they are put the for their particular purpose but as humans brains bodies and minds are second. Neurobiology is not designed to be constantly shock absorbing for other people to bring a shock. Absorber is basically trying to always avoid conflict. Mediate keep the peace try. And almost like did not lead the consequences of other people's actions Fixture and impacts you all kinds of reasons so our explain it and then we're going to talk about how to manage it so i think that all of us actually shock absorb on occasion and i don't think it's a bad thing actually to do a little bit of shock absorbing. I think it's actually very natural that we want to try and be someone in pain. We see toxic situation. We don't talk situation not because we don't the negative but because we are wired for love and we have this optimism bias on neural biology with wear jeans function the way our mind brain connection functions the whole mind brain body linked is all toward survival. It's towards love. It's towards restoring balance. It's towards getting macy. Mind working with wise mine so win. Something is off when the balance is off when a person's toxic when they're being manipulative win being filled win this conflict arising we are drawn to. They're not to go back because the negative but we don't because there is an important me trying to fix it. We're trying to change the situation. We try to help the person so good. Wide full of nature draws us in to bed to be a shock absorber on occasion and we just go to distinguish between between being a shock absorber and a peacemaker so a peacemaker is someone who will try to keep the peace as the word says but a true peacemaker is not going to avoid conflict would take things on themselves just to just to make sure that that they isn't gonna be conflict. A peacemaker will allow people to experience. The consequences will be supported through the process to try and see the process through but a true peacemaker recognizes. That you can't change someone you can't fix someone but you can certainly support someone to help them to process what they're going through

And maybe i'll think of more springsteen columns writer knows it deal so eagles win the east i. Yeah i think so. I mean just by into because if they finish the season with six wins and they don't make the playoffs that's a top ten draft pick in if they make the playoffs with these with six nine one record. That's the nineteen to pick and you're not gonna win a playoff round. You're not gonna win the super bowl. I think they got to think long term. But i think the product won't yeah. I think that tie is going to end up helping them. More than you thought it would And I i know that as a cowboy fan i should want them to like win the division to show something but when it's this bad of a season you're dislike okay. Let's just play a lot of young people. Let's see what you can do. And then just try to rewrite so either way it's gonna be fun Please stay safe. Inc yourself Hopefully we can meet at show some time.

Billy joel sit there and do oak christmas tree while i was like. No this is great. I love the spontaneity. So so i think that's kinda cool you've got to Very different genres Both you know near to your heart but they kinda speak You do they think. Do you think they speak to different sides of your personality. I mean they call it ema music and people make fun of it you know people young whining and complaining and stuff like that but really in my mind. That's like springsteen is such a big influential part andrew mcmahon. Who is the lead singer of the band. I love wall something. Corporate in jack's mannequin. He's been in a bunch of bands but he plays the piano and it's kind of a softer punk rock band. And i've seen him cover. I'm on fire in concert. A couple of times doing his take on it like a piano led version. I'm on fire is an ema saw. Yeah i it's just the if you interpret the lyrics i mean maybe the way that the music is performed is different but it comes from just the seem place in my mind is like this music that A lot of the lyrics in some of the punk music. I listened to a little dark or their little depressing and when people confronting with that. I always say that. Like hearing somebody articulate the way that i'm feeling is freeing and a lot of really good. Emo punk rock bands do that. And for instance is the king of being able to do that. The way that he's able to articulate things you don't even know that you're feeling and the way the it's just it's it's i think that's the thing that ties it together. That's i guess what. I look for in music because face it ninety percent of the time. You're listening to music. You're it's it's in your buds or you're driving in your car. It's a personal.

RH guarantees discounted prices. He also advertises his hair. Cheap store in a new and and exciting way and yes cheap is in the name. The advertisements are elaborately worded and there are multiple half our whole page ads in a single single-issue of the local gazette. The ads lay out his cash. Only low prices policy.

She surprised because even though she'd seen the AD in the Hebrew Gazette for cloth fourteen and a half cents only the number fourteen stuck in her head. She doesn't have any of these newfangled half pennies on hand at the store but the clerk points out depending how much yard as she needs it can work out to an even number and the competition is selling the same fabric for fifteen cents a yard down the street so she saving a lot still. The customer is suspicious and challenges the cleric. How can Mr macy sell this so cheaply? Is it stain stained no. It's in perfect condition. I think he just wants to keep us clerks on our toes by making us do all this math and making change for you folks. Oh poor you. I'm just hopeless it Matt but this is lovely material and prices lovely as well. I'll take seven yards for the customers. Do exactly what macy hope they do.

"Six part series macy's versus gambled symbols. We look at one of America's most bruising retail battles. It's hard to imagine in this age of online shopping. Fast fashion that there was once a time mm-hmm when department stores were the most exciting places in the world better than going to the circus. In fact back in the Heyday of department stores in the Nineteen Thirties and forties you. You could go see a circus. While you're there were meet the famous aviator Amelia Earhart Gore by a dismantle Twelfth Century Monastery. That once belonged to the media. Mogul William Randolph hearst. He's places were thrilling. Jimbo's in macy's opened the way for the likes of Marshall Field's wanamaker's Bloomingdale's and even the twentieth century big box stores like Walmart. This was before online shopping. Buried one department store chain after another. Before all that macy's in Kimble's were retail wonders founded by two very different men. One was an American born quaker. The other her a German Jewish immigrant. They both started retail dynasties grounded on different ideas of thrift but both were aiming for the same target target the American middle class consumer.

He picks up his fountain pen to tally the days sales. RHS His family calls him is now in his twenties ruddy-cheeked in short yet powerfully built. He comes from a long line of nantucket whaling men and ran away to sea at fifteen just around the same time. I'm Herman Melville was a deckhand researching his novel Moby Dick Vivid Red Star moves as he writes. One whaling voyage was more than enough for him so he set out to make his fortune business and now is the moment of his reckoning r h begins to write receipts one pair hose. Twenty five cents. One boy suspenders. Forty three cents to yards velvet. Ninety six cents expenses to Mr Jacobs delivery wagon three dollars ninety five cents to yards India silk one dollars. Twenty eight cents one pair dimity cuff eight cents one cotton. It rose notion twelve cents. Three lace doilies thirty three cents one child under vest. Twenty five cents as he goes down the pathetic list his spirits sink macy's slowly scrawled. Today's total negative three three dollars and forty six cents for a few long moments. He stares down at this record of his own failure then. He turns the page in thick black flowing script. He writes one sentence in capital letters. I have worked two years for nothing. Then he adds four words. Damn Damn Damn Damn for nearly a thousand miles away from Boston in Vincennes Indiana. Another merchant is facing a very different problem. Problem it's a beautiful spring morning in eighteen forty five Adam. Jimbo stands outside his dry goods store. Something's not right. He's not happy. Be With a painted sign on the front of his shop. It's the name he thinks it reads. Adam gambled general merchandise. Adam isn't aware aware of it but he's talking to himself out loud. It's not very What is the word impressing? I mean impressive off Adams a Jewish immigrant from Bavaria. The often thinks in his native Germany when he's troubled otherwise his self taught. English is rather solid when he wants to learn something he reaches out. He's learned Bible history from a wandering.

He headed to Indiana where he walked. The banks of the Wabash River Nailing handbills on trees advertising his merchandise and selling dry goods out of of an oil cloth sack on his back. He did this for years before opening a storefront now in eighteen forty five. He works from behind a counter running running a thriving business. The walls of his dry goods store crowded with signs that are neatly lettered and not too badly spelled more to the point they reflect flex his scruples which are unusual for these parts signs. That read Kimble's will conduct its business on one price policy with fairness in inequality to all patrons whether they be residents of the city planes men traders or Indians that sentiment is a huge draw for native Americans who are forever getting fleeced by merchants who pay them less for their pelts than they pay white fur trappers. The natives travel miles out of their way due to trade with honest adamant Vincennes as for one price policy with clearly marked as advertised prices. No haggling and no bargaining. That's even rarer than treating. Native Americans like equals if Adam gambled says your buttons cost a half penny a piece. That's exactly what they cost for. You're you're anybody else who walks through the door. It feels quite modern and civilized to the good people of Vincennes Indiana who are accustomed to endless dickering over prices. And they're usually no match for the Savvy Frontier Tradesmen and once they're in the door they're drawn. In even more by Adams innovative displays blaze he groups goods by category customers can find tailoring supplies ribbons and pins all in one area with neat. Wooden dividers drawers George sometimes separate tables. This is state of the art business model stuff. Most stores just arranged goods any which way with darning wool next to the flower in hammered by the pickles. All in all atom Jimbo comes by his success the hardest way of all by following his conscience and above fall by being honest exaggeration. Hyperbole fanciful poetic license. All of the stuff that makes for good advertising goes completely against danced his ethos that sense of honesty will become both his strength and his Achilles heel so standing in front of his store in eighteen in forty five Adam. Jimbo thinks back to his time as a teenager in Bavaria toiling in barons vineyards near Ryan faults. The barons home was a fourteenth century castle. He'd had enough of the hard work for little. Pay The sickening smell of the barons rotting grapes. And the stickiness. He can't seem to wash off his fingers. He has a plan and he shares it with his fellow workers. I'm getting out of here. I'm going to America. The very idea strikes strikes them as absurd and so they tease him. You'll never work in a palace like this in America. They don't even have them in America. And how are you going to get their swim. mm-hmm Kimball signs up as a deckhand on a ship headed for America. That was some time ago. Now in Vincennes his thoughts shift to the present moment no palaces in America then something occurs to him. He goes to the stables and return to the rush and paint underneath the sign historic front that reads Adam Jimbo general merchandise. He carefully ads the Palace of Trade. He steps back to serve as work in smiles without knowing he's dubbed a former dentist office the First Department Department Store in the Midwest in Boston r h macy is still trying to make peace with the fact that he lost the five hundred dollars earned from a four year whaling voyage by gambling on that needle and thread shop failed within a year so he tries again with dry goods but he fails at that as well. macy is desperate so he does.

"Macy's you you demand this is basically the federal reserve's problem volatility eight they are causing this because when Jay Powell got in as chairman he proceeded to raise interest rates by a hundred basis points too far too fast and even though the trump economy is rock solid slowed us down a bit because of those higher interest rates that was different from the fox business network blaming the federal reserve for the market to discuss that with this durable since she is business correspondent for the fox business network she's also the host of women and money find your at Deirdre Bolton Deirdre thank you for joining us this morning on the brand coming to appreciate it I'm much different picture than yesterday where you look at the market Dow rebounding is the worst day which was yesterday of the year even under point drop but today it's a different phone and pretty optimistic Chinese negotiators they may be willing to compromise with the U. S. on trade issues so that blending a little bit of wind in the sails and then we also heard from Walmart this morning and Walmart exceeded on the top and the bottom line with its earning added that they did here would actually be a little bit better than most of what the Wall Street community or want the fact that I think more importantly than that the company is really managing navigating wanting it to navigate add be reckoned trying to go head to head the Walmart overhauling at the fight change it buying merchandise in advance if it's centrally managing at waiting the manager during that the intent straight time between China and the US so a lot of people paying okay that's great and I'm actually watching Walmart lead the Dow higher as we speak now how does Hong Kong play into this with the unrest in Hong Kong we have reports of a coming out that the Chinese now are amassing a troops on the border but also quick response troops that they use internally in China to quell any kind of protest or opposition that they are now a massing on the border with Hong Kong as well it did that publicly I mean well I am not sure those are clearly on edge about not only three tensions that we just talked about but to your point that increasingly violent situation and protests in Hong Kong and permanent Dutch recording do that does complicate the trade issue we know that president trump tweeted out our earlier you're proposing a personal meeting between himself and the Chinese president xi Jinping paying and at the end of it president trump put out you know he said of course trying to want to make a deal and I conduct everything he's talking about trade but then he does let them work humanely with Hong Kong first you know it is all wrapped gather any needed bouncers mind really what that equals long story short is volatility so I think you know that's what we're keeping track or from the for the New York Stock Exchange and then the other is that the Hong Kong government and now when the implement measures so in other words it's trying to help but the only adding on to me because actually it's own growth is down and you know for people who know the region well I mean really is the International Center in Asia I mean on the the British companies have been during that that there are more than a hundred years and the huge US companies have a presence there for many corporations that really is there why are there jumping off point if you like into the Asian economy bank of America reads the chance of a recession to one in three in the next twelve months and everyone is talking about the yield curve that it has inverted that the spread between the two year and the ten year yield turns negative for the first time since seven and every time that has happened in the last fifty years it's a pre seeds a recession can you just very quickly and explain for those of us who don't really understand a whole lot about these terms what that means to have that in verse in do you agree that there are warning signs about a recession in the future and you do understand it it's just that the weird word rating universe Kermit the weird that a board but essentially if you were to loan me money for like a day a week if you would expect that I would pay you back in a week and maybe I would give you a little action right having borrowed your money if you loan me money for ten years you're going to expect that I pay you back your original mighty war because I just part of your money for ten years and so that is the normal logic of the bond market is that if you and and when we talk about the bond market in treasury the potentially lending money to the US government when investors lend money for longer than expect more in return that I'm a logic when the yield curve in bird in the opposite and the reason that died he is just basically show that investors do not have confidence and growth that's really what it comes down here quite right in the past thirty years every time it happened there are a lot of people say that these days are longer apple couple in the same way and in fact you had former fed chairman Janet Yellen even saying that within the condition on a may have changed so much in the last decade that maybe that the top the indicator that it once twice well today I can tell you that no longer the case so that yeah I am not part of the reason why you thought the Dow fell off my eight hundred points because people are very anxious all the same when it happened and I think we both the continent agreed bank of America I was standing at the Connie is actually a pretty solid footing we have a call to record low point man there are a lot of signs that the economy is pretty steady consumer it's holding up and that is true of our economic activity and even with Walmart which is what we were talking about earlier the company exceeding it on the top and the bottom line the confirming pretty here it shows that your consumers are still spending I think for most people including the current owl they're more concerned about what's going on thanks to the world in China and Europe and so I think the fight is paying a term most investors actually a hundred percent probability expected the fed will cut rates in September which means that that basically just gives a shot in the arm to the economy there Jane Powell saying even though the US is doing pretty well with you nine that is an interconnected global economy maybe angel turning a little bit maybe Europe returning a little bit and we're gonna do everything that we can from here to support the economy I keep it on track but the reason you're quite right the clean why people freaked out why we saw that huge sell off yesterday is because the the physical correlate with market fell off but there's a lot of people even here the floor they're back exchanging they let that one day of an inverted yield curve did not even question you have to be that kind of activity go on for days or weeks to make it a solid in the we have about two minutes here the president tweeting out he said the spread is way too much as other countries say thank you to clue is J. Powell in the federal reserve Germany and many others are playing the game crazy inverted yield curve we should easily be reaping big rewards and gains but the fed is holding us back we will win what does he mean by the feds are holding us back president trump would very much like the fed the car even further than it had been have certainly not been sorry about making those wishes no and what he's talking about in relation to other countries is that for example the ET be a quick one in Europe had cut rate as low as humanly possible in Europe and so president trump is saying that perhaps our bank here in the US can cost as much as what has died in Europe by the bank of England is on the same path and and in Asia as well that the control banks are are con to keep their rates to physically and historically at very low levels the counter argument you why is that not the best idea right back and is going back the reason that we were just talking about which is that the economy is actually in pretty good bad and a lot of people even president from critics who would argue that he has done a lot for the year at the crime he has done a lot for business all the tax plan that was put in place number two thousand seven billion that really helps a lot of corporations that really needed for businesses to compete to compete on an international level Hey look at trump administration has done a lot right let the system work and there is a fear that if he encouraged hi she reported actually necessary back in can you become a little bit more challenging that the fed will no longer have any kind of quivers or any kind of arrow in a quiver the idea thank you hi gently I think that's what the fed chairman Powell has indicated so for example investors are only and I put that in quotes I think it's twenty five basis point cut in that number versus fifty basis points hi should something happen that dog actually derail your economy later I'm sort of how you can thank you so much she's on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange she's not on the construction site the New York Stock Exchange where it's crazy busy right now but it sounds like we've got good news this morning to start your day dear dear thank you you're welcome are you coming up on on the Brian Kilmeade show could talk to you about the economy and what happens if the economy does go into a recession what happens in the twenty twenty election gonna get your predictions a merry Walter for Brian Kilmeade being you everything you need to know I get take a minute to introduce you to delta rescue a fantastic organization you know how much I love dogs now import is for dogs have great lives not be abused that's what delta rescue comes in I got two great Pyrenees one's got a bad knee one is death is a lot of attention and I want to make sure that attention given should something happen to me meanwhile Alison understand rescue dogs the great producer as a rescue dog that was born in a parking lot and still has our today they'll to rescue was founded by Leo Grillo nineteen seventy nine so largest no kill care for life century of its kind delta rescue so bring four year anniversary to go to their website for more information a.

"Eight. And I thought I'll do anything this guy wants to do. He's a genius director is immediately and. So I really wanted to do boogie nights. And I met Paul at the Formosa cafe and I had done. My thing about thinking about the characters through line. What the bigger story was about what it resonated. I had all my ducks in line to pitch myself for it. I couldn't get in a word in edgewise. I mean, Paul started talking about he was going to shoot it and everything and it was one of the great moments of my life. I went oh dear God, I'm not additioning. He is I've got this role. I've got this role. He's pitching me. And I just sort of Mun back in my seat and let Paul talk on you know. And, but it was that's when I thought okay things have changed in that was born of Fargo. Again, it was it was a couple years later. Seem like a couple of years Joe Montana. After Fargo and after all of that hoopla's sent me a note saying. Welcome. Welcome to the inner circle or whatever Joe had made it he had done speed the plough on. The godfather and dental these big movies, and he sort of said, welcome into the next echelon. I really got what he was saying. Yeah. Of it, so cool. It is cool. Welcome to the club. Welcome to the club. I mean, what are the odds to make a living doing this? They're there. They're slim. You choose roles. Well, one of the best compliments, I can pay to you is when I said before we start, which is when your movies are on you flip through the menu and cable, you still stop and some of it's been twenty years or more. Whether it's Vargo or boogie nights, the list goes on you've got an eye for something. That's going to last something that's going to be meaningful. It's good to know. Yeah. Yeah. Certainly had my flops. I wrote some of them even directed some. But. I credit Dave Mamat. I he set the bar very high and taught me a whole lot about storytelling. Got a terrible question to ask you, do you have a favorite role of your career? I know it's like choosing a favorite child, but I'll ask anyway, certainly. Frank Gallagher's going to be in the list. Dave rohde. A film called state in Maine. I just I had the best time in that. I play a director. And it's it's show biz thing Alex Alec Baldwin's in it and. Sir. Jessica parker. And it's it's all the inside jokes. I. Sarah, Sarah, Jessica, and I had seen in a little tiny bathroom where I'm trying to talk her into taking her shirt off for the movie, and we had to kick Dave out. He kept snorting and laughing. I said this is hard enough. Get out hit he had to go sit at the monitor. We couldn't have him in there. But that film just loved it. He was. Just at the best lines. Did this thing called door to door that I wrote my with my friends, Steven Schachter? It was made for television movie about a guy named Bill porter who was born with cerebral palsy and became a door to door salesman. Not just door to door salesman. He worked for the Wasco company, and he outsold everybody in that he sold so many so much stuff. They stop holding the contest, particularly after we did this film. And it was the first. Makeup piece that I'd ever done was my whole face was rubber serious character voice, look everything. And I was really proud of the writing. And it just Slade. It was it was it was difficult, but exhilarating and had a great ending. We want all the Emmys that year. So that was because they're not the obvious choices people would say Jerry, London art for. Sure. Sure. But there's there's a long list of them that have been proud of. Yeah. That's a good thing to be able to say. Right. And the ones I'm not proud of just pretend they never exactly we will whitewash them. Edit them right out. I'm good at that. Your wife, Felicity. Is she central into the way you pick characters and scripts and you talk through those kind of things as as other actor, obviously respect so much. Yes, we talk about show biz a lot. We talk about our rules. We give each other notes. It's not. Something everyone should try. But. She. Yes, she can be tough, and I can be tough too. But we met in the theater, and that's really at the core of our relationship telling stories and acting, and we both love it in the same way. And there's not a jealous. Boehner body. She only wants me to succeed, and I can truthfully say the same back to her and. The gods have been good to us. I mean, she's ascended the highest highs in the business, and I've had my eyes to you know, now, we're older, and we know it goes up and down and opened down. Boy. One year. I have unfair. Unlimited respect for my wife in one year. She did a film called TransAmerica. And it was the first year desperate housewives. That was all in one year. So she went to every single award show. She was in Herrin makeup every single week. We had two kids three and five. And. It was Harvey Weinstein done the. Transamerica? He bought it. You know, his campaigns for the Oscars were huge. So she was out every single night. And she kept it together. And raise the kids. It was. It was magnificent only strong person could have done what she did. And it's fun to meet someone so early and your careers sort of rise together to watch the struggles. And celebrate the successes. Yeah. It's. Marriage is sort of a fairytale marriage. I gotta say she's a love to the second. I saw. It's just been fabulous. Life's good. So we're talking about shameless, and how long that may go. Hopefully goes as long as you want it to go, do you think about other kinds of movies their roles is there something that's sort of burning a hole in your creative brain that? You'd like to do. Yes. It's been a long time. It's hard to remember before shameless. I know it's coming to an end. And I've started to think about life post. Shameless. I went to see Aaron Sorkin 's play. To kill a Mockingbird, and I thought, oh, I wanna do that. I've seen a bunch of plays here. So I'd love to do some more theater. Think of always I'm best in in theater. I think that's where I belong and I've seen a lot of films, and I thought maybe I could have done that role. So I'm excited. I don't think I'm finished yet. I think I'm in my third act for sure, and it turns out them on really good at doing fuck all I can do nothing long time, which is new for me. I used to have to do something, right? But right. Just sit still and be quiet for a long time now. So maybe a little break after shameless. Yeah. Maybe do some theater and. I'd like to do some more feature films. The idea of a new project figuring out a new character. It's exciting to me again. Maybe the Coen brothers. You back together. It's threatened shoes dog and get the role that I've got a number if you could call and love to work with them again. I love everything they do to. Thank you so much. Thank you.

"It's Thursday January tenth welcome to market foolery. I'm Matt Greer. And joining me in studio, we have motley fool endless Andy cross and Ron gross guys. A belated happy new year. How are we doing and very new? Thank you. Well, we're talking a lot of retail earning some good and some Macy's. And that's where we start. Shares of Macy's down around eighteen percent of the time of our taping. Ron weaker than expected holiday sales. inC, Macy's cutting its earnings outlook. Now, you are a former Macy's employees get to that later in the show Froude we're gonna get to that later in the show. But what about the? What to say, they're bad. They're actually not. They're not eighteen percent bad. I kind of feel you have you have a Nemec same store sales growth less than one percent, but you have growth you don't have contraction. But you know, I think I think Wall Street is focusing on all of the lowered guidance, and that's fair you see net sales guidance coming down earnings. Forecasts are have been cut. The company has alluded to needing to be promotional to as they ensure a clean inventory. That's an interesting comment to me because that actually has implications for the wider retail segment because of Macy's is going to be promotional that sometimes then, you know, as a domino effect and others than need to be promotional people. Start cutting prices that eats into margins you have earnings impact as a result of that. So not great. But again, some areas of of the of positivity. Double digit growth in the digital business certainly good to see their and they did return to what they expected to see by the week of Christmas. So just some weakness right there in the middle of December, which is playing around with with results. So stocks getting slammed, you know, six and a half times earnings at at this point for those value investors out there careful though five percent yield at these levels as well could be value trap. Could be an amazing value investment. I'm not going to find as to which at this moment. It's almost cheapest value. We may talk about today. I think Ron's point about the inventory and watching the pricing and how aggressive they have to be to drop prices and discount for a company that its profit margins. A few years ago, we're not in the mid teens now down in the six percent range. I think so I think investors looking at that headline. I agree. Eighteen percents. Seems pretty Gress of however, just considering the retail environment that we are under anytime companies are implying that they have to be aggressive on the pricing front. I think sends them shudders down investors spine. And we're clearly seeing that today with Macy's and exacerbated by the fact that I think everyone thought this holiday season was going to be really strong. I think that was kind of the scuttle. But and even if it's a pocket of weakness or a week or two here of weakness that that that makes everyone changed course, and sell stocks holiday comes at least, we're positive. That's a good time here. When I hear Ron actually, I mean, that's a good investigator. That's not a great term. So let's let's talk about the stock when you look at the fifty two week range low of around twenty two high of around forty two back in August today. Shares on the earnings news trading in the mid twenties. So it's back to basically close to fifty two week low. What do we think about Macy stock going forward? You have a company that that has Ron pointed out from my from my metric perspective not that not expensive. At all. Really course, the growth prospects are muted generates hefty cash flows that that it uses to continue to pay a dividend. So and their capital expenditures are running five hundred six hundred million dollar range. So when I look at this dock to me, I don't think it's the it's the attractive enough on the pricing front that I would go bottom dwelling here. But I was certainly keep an eye on any time. This kind of aggressive move happens in my experiences. I. Let the market just settled down a little bit to see where it settles the price settles and then take a little bit more healthy look at what the company reports when it comes to the actual earnings and expectations for the year. I make may take the other side of that trait. I might nibble here. I would never have it be a big her Senate of my folio. I would never have retail probably as big percent under most circumstances. I don't have the numbers in front of me. But I think they've they've showed up their balance sheet a bit over the over the last year to I like to see that it is awfully cheap. They are still making money. I don't think things are bad as they seem. Now, if we go into a recession and full price retailers, you know, it ain't going to be pretty, but that's hard to predict Enron. As I mentioned earlier. I think your perspective is unique because you are in fact, a former Macy's employees, we have talked about your Macy's career just for people who may have missed that conversation. How about a highlight and low light of your Macy's? Time. Well, it was one of my first jobs ever, and it was in high school, and it was very exciting to be hired by a big company like Macy's. It was actually Bamberger is the one I worked at the time owned by Macy's. And that was really exciting. I remember in my interview when they asked me what book I had read recently. And I really quite frankly, hadn't read a book recently. So I I said some Shakespeare, but because we had recently read it in high school, and they were like who is this guy who's reading Shakespeare, but they gave me the job. And then they placed me in the bath shop, which was a big letdown because it was towels and bathrobes, and oh boy was in pretty I don't have such experiences on the front, but I really wish I would've shopping back then around where Rama's working to see what he was like sales. I love that. Well, we talked before the show, and you can fast to to not really is it fair to say you didn't really want to deal with the customers. It was. Okay. So this is. Commissioner myself there. No. But there was no such thing as barcodes or the fancy registers. Now, you had to type little thing in manually and God forbid someone had to return you buy head would explode. It was literally almost involved my. Pay my cut it does hide in the corner and pretend refilled the little bathrobes over and over and over fresh. We go into your closet today. I can fold a shirt, but I can compete with the gap or let's stick with the retail theme. Bad news for Macy's not helping target. Now target reporting a five point seven percent increase in twenty eighteen holiday. Same store sales. Now guys that's pretty good. When you compare it to last year's three point four percent number and target is maintaining its outlook. But shares of target down around three percent, Andy what gives here. Hey, I spent some money target over the holiday season. So I'm contributing this line. I looked to be a fairly good news announcement foam target when they're looking at their their comp growth at five point seven percent up from last year's around three and a half percent interesting their store pickup, which is you order online. You pick it up in the store was up sixty percent. And now is driving about a quarter of the digital total digital sales are done with store pickup. So I think it's a nice innovation. They've had to compete with the likes of WalMart. And some of their pickup initiatives, the making lots of investments into the store, the stocks sixty dollars here. Now, you know, that's gonna earn five and a half dollars. Maybe that's a that's a earnings multiple little bit higher than what we saw Macy's. But I think it's a little bit of a better stock here and growing I think in the mid single digits line generates lots of cash, so I think target to me is a little bit more attractive of an investment opportunity. That announcement was was pretty good. And I think is just getting hit by the Macy's news today agreed on track to have its best full euro sales growth thirteen years. Not too shabby. They did announce also the CFO was retiring. I don't know if investors are reacting to that may be a bit not too troublesome though. A handful of other management changes as well. Online sales grew twenty nine percent as Andy said driven by home delivery, and the pickup hubs. That they now have I like what I see four percent yield for those seeking nice dividend continue to be quite profitable. As Andy said only twelve thirteen times earnings not expensive doubled the earnings multiple of Macy's. But appropriately I think so I think they're doing fine. Okay. Guys. Well, perhaps the most surprising news to me bed bath and beyond shares up twelve percent on any. I don't know if I was more surprised by the fact that the shares were up twelve percent or the fact that bed bath and beyond is apparently still around. And I want to renew. I'm just a little a little piece from the earnings announcement that bed bath and beyond said, it's a head of schedule in terms of slowing down the declines in operating profit. It also said that it's fiscal twenty nine hundred earnings per share will be about the same as twenty eight teen an investor just went wild. Yeah. I mean, if you're if the past few years, the you've been just going down that hill. I mean, this is a business that had earnings per share in two thousand sixteen around five dollars. And now they're down to the three dollar range operating margins have fallen from twelve percent down to about four and a half percent. The interest coverage on the debt Ron has gone from sixteen times to seven times. So like, you just think about the metrics of that business going down down down as worse than that's that's that's bad. And when they come out and say calm turns for the quarter for the fourth quarter. The expected fourth. Coming in down about one percent and the earnings per share for the year about flat for next year as they will be for this year. Investors are saying wow at this price. This is a discount that I can't refuse to not be buying today off this low, and maybe they're trying to bottom tick, the stock price and clearly the stocks moving on that news. Yeah. I have a feeling this is just a trade for many people. This is not a long-term holding. As we always say, it's all about expectations versus reality. Here. Things are bit better than expected stock ticks ticks pop. Some people will benefit from it. And then probably end up being short term investors, again similar to Macy's stocks trading around six and a half seven times. But I think they're in a bit more trouble here. This is a company that I would be very very wary of they continue to buy back stock is that a good capital allocation decision. Well, not if not if they're gonna continue to settling down. It's it's a lot cheaper these days. As the stock down around eighty percent over the past five years. Yeah. I mean, it sells it like seven tenths book value. Now. I mean, all the other retailers let three four times book value, which is down from what they used to be as we mentioned, the earnings multiples of all just totally contracted. So I look at this now the risk here. I see is that the same management team has been in place running this for the last ten years or so and this is a team at bought back loads of stock when the stock was at the forty to sixty range of two three billion dollars worth across to your period. So I look at those investments and the other investments they've made as terrible uses of shareholder capital. So Toronto point it's probably not one that I would be looking at over the next few years holding on because I just don't see the story long-term plain out either in the business or in the management, but I do love the low bar here. We were talking before the show, and I was thinking analogy, and for me, it's that I'm slightly ahead of schedule in terms of losing the weight I gained over the. True true. True. I'm by. I'm trading MAC today. I'm healthy next week healthier. And so maybe like from from investor perspective or traitor perspective bed bath and beyond a little healthier today. And they were yesterday. Okay. So we've talked a lot about bricks and mortar retailers and over the years. We've talked a lot especially in recent years about which retailers are most Amazon proof. I wanna ask you that question again because we we have talked about that a lot. But do we overstate Amazon and the threat that Amazon poses when we're talking about some of these more established retailers. I think overstate yes. But it is a true. Problem for those brick and mortar retailers and we've see unfold than it will continue to unfold, it's not gonna destroy brick and mortar forever. It's not going to destroy all the malls. In fact, you see some online retailers actually moving towards the mall. Whether it's a war, be Parker or an untuckit. So people with online presence actually want brick and mortar presence, which is an interesting phenomenon. So the malls will be around. Perhaps we grew too fast. Perhaps there are too many not all the anchor stores, Allah JC, Penney will survive, it's unfortunate. But it's it's a natural consequence of the business cycle when especially when the company like Amazon comes in Intermediate's industry. And so things are overblown, but still you know, it you can't overlook I think from the marginal sale of of from a buying perspective. I looked at Macy's beginning of the holiday period was was looking pretty good. But then just fell off the cliff in mid. December. And that's where I think someone like Amazon and other exceptional online retailers have an advantage because rather than having now to go to a Macy's store. I can just sit on my couch an order from Amazon the next day or two is not just Amazon I will say like cosmetics was challenged for Macy's Ulta is doing very well in cosmetics right now, also salon. So I think it's I think it is certainly Ron said Amazon is playing a big part, but there are other factors going in. And just the buying habits of consumers are changing a lot of those companies. You mentioned are also pushing more of their online sales it just a higher hurdle. When you're going against the likes of Amazon day in Boyd, I wanna bring you into this conversation as a Representative of the millennial generation as a somewhat no not somewhat as a younger man than my esteem colleagues here. How about bricks and mortar pick if you're looking out over the next ten years? We've talked about target. We've talked about Macy's. We've talked about bed bath and beyond. Do you have one bricks and mortar company that you think is most apt to succeed, you know, this conversation's very interesting to me because out of the three stores that I enjoy actually enjoy going to Macy's is the one that I kind of enjoy going to. But it's clear that they're not, you know, killing it as a business right now. I absolutely detest going to target but out of the three I think that one is probably the healthiest business, and we'll be around the longest, but I have a better answer. Okay. As far is brick and mortar stores go, I think that hardware and home improvement stuff is always going to be the kind of business that you go somewhere to get something. Yeah. So I think stores like Lowe's or Home Depot are going to be your your most resilient, Burke and mortar. What about the price tractor supply? Yeah. For sure I mean, you're not you're not buying dear corn or. On that stymie massacre. Dan's exceptionally, smart, damn because MasterCard the spending pulse report from the holidays had home improvement sales up nine percent so home improvement doing quite well right now. And as and as we wrap up here, I wanna hit the desert island question in a minute. But Ron you mentioned malls earlier. Do you have a favorite mall store favorite mall store? Yeah. I've always been a fan of nordstroms just for their customer service, which actually think has gone down recently. So if you're listening, Nordstrom get that get that set get that. Right. That's what differentiates them I think the merchandise as well, but the customer service, you get that large big bigger box kind of department stores with differentiates them, and that's why I like to Andy, I'm in new shopper at Ness press, o which say that again, Espresso, that's too great. So it's the Nestle Espresso home making machine, and they just they just had to combine the terms their online experience is fantastic. Mac through the rap ordering elections. But they have these what they call, and they have women Gummer your mall Roman high. So I go over there from not ordering online, and they serve you some coffee. You can buy your little pods artist. Great Wessels, pretzels. Yeah. That's funny because you know, what? My favorite store, I'm not even sure it's a round anymore, but honestly, my favorite mall store, orange, Julius. I knew that love or joy on it. It's so good, Jamie. My wife that was I used to be like the local manager of awards Julius like if they have I don't know. But still. Yeah, I'm not sure it's around anymore. I think it is. I think it's still I think someone bought them, you know, bath and beyond the beyond. Okay. So the desert island poll, we've got Macy's. We've got target and we have bed bath and beyond. If you're going to own one of these stocks for the next five years, and you're gonna be on a desert island. And again, the caveat don't this way. It's just a silly way to like in the show, but which docu gone with I'm going. I'd never go. My man, Dan danso targeted is damn Boyd its target. But I again, I'd rather go to Macy's than target. And what do you buy a Macy's? I usually like a lotta times for my mom's birthday or for Christmas or something for her like to go around and find stuff that you would like in pick it up for a good son Levi's at Macy's to. That's usually where I go when I need a new pair of jeans. You know, you know, where I went years ago for five at once Sears. And it was great because I was the only one in the store. It was great. It was nice. I liked it. Peace and quiet. Okay. Cosco for another day Mack. Eight. Oh, I don't holiday period or you. Get leave them wanting more for different. There you go.
