Meantime, a cloud network, many of us probably uses getting a boost in security. Apple's iCloud system will soon be fully encrypted, protecting backups of photos, chat history and other data. According to multiple reports, most iPhones and Mac users back up their data on iCloud, which is currently accessible to the company, hackers and police. Top law enforcement officials have fought against this kind of encryption. Joanna stern is a tech columnist for The Wall Street Journal. She tells us why. This means that the company itself can not access your data. There's no technical way that they can get into it. They don't have the keys to your data. They can't get into your cloud, your iCloud, and get some of your messages or get some of your photos. And some of those things can be very helpful in investigation to law enforcement.

I don't see you get me to be Bragging on myself. I'm saying you get me because you can't call another big mortgage company and get the guy that runs the show. You're not going to do that. It doesn't happen. I give you my cell phone number for 7 to 509144. And I know many of you. You get really surprised on Monday. When I actually call you back. That's right. I actually call you back. Isn't that what we want? Don't we need to go back to that in this country? I mean, honestly, you guys were so were so enamored with fast immediate service. So you go to the interweb. And then you type in all your information. Then you wonder why all your information got sold? Okay. You don't need to do that. You can come to a local business person. You can listen, You got a problem with an out of state mortgage company that promised you the world and then won't deliver and ghost you at the end of the day. You don't have that with me. You can stop into my office it for at 27 29 West Fairbanks Avenue in Winter Park. I've been here for 21 years. Same location, 21 years. 472509144. Here's the reasons I'm getting a lot of calls from you folks these days. I had no clue till I read this article last week that 81% of people that should re finance have not re financed yet. 81% That means only 19% of the eligible market that would benefit from a refinance, have not re financed yet. And I'm going to tell you something, just because so and so whatever mortgage companies servicing your loan there a servicer They're not. It's a contradiction in terms. Believe me, servicer and servicing. You are not the same thing. Believe me. They're not the same thing Just because they're servicing your loan. It's like, well, they have all my information. No, they bought your loan. In its entirety. They don't know who you are. You think they know who you are? They don't know who you are. I will get to know who you are your personal needs and your goals and we'll structure alone. To meet your needs. That's what we're going to do. Now you might need to re finance you might be one of those 81% that Evan refinanced yet Maybe it's maybe it's not even a better rate. Maybe it's eliminating private mortgage insurance. Maybe it is a better rate. Maybe it's all over payment. Maybe it would be cashing out to pay off debt. Maybe it would be cashing out for home improvements. Maybe it might be converting your 30 year to 15. I love helping you guys go 15, and I know sometimes we when I get you on the phone and we look at the numbers you go at God. You know what? That 15 year payments just a little higher than I wanted. That's fine. You can still pay a 30 year loan off on a 15 year term. You can do that. But you can't pay a 15 year loan off in 30 years. That would be a default of the mortgage. We don't want to do that for 7 to 509144 for the loan arranger. If you want to talk to cleave Loveland and his team, he's got an amazing team of buyers agents and they would be happy to help you. I want to tell you a quick story about his buyer's agents, too. So I hear When I When I've got a transaction, I always call the listing agent. So if you're a buyer mind, I always call the listing agent introduce myself. Let him let the listing agent know that I guarantee a closed time and this loan is good to go ready to go. And I had a call Cleveland his team were working on a buyer of mine. It was actually repeat by her. And the buyer asked for $10,000 in closing costs from the cellar. And I get a call from the listing agent Pretty pretty seemed like he knew what he was doing. And he does. So he calls me up and he says Hey, I don't know if you really know what's going on in the market, but people don't get closing costs in this market. There's too many offers on the table. And I said, Look, it I'm the lender. You can negotiate. Whatever you want with the buyer. He's asking for closing costs. If you don't like the closing cost counter, offer him, that's all. Well, it comes down to it in Cleaves. Agent Nanette gets him $7000 in closing costs to buy this home. Seven grand Then they did. The home inspection came back and they bumped it to $8500. So don't tell me nobody's getting closing costs in this market. You use the right agent that will fight for you. You can get closing costs in this market. Now is it as easy as it is in a buyer's market will, Of course, it's not. Are you going to get the seller to pay closing costs for you when there's five other offers on the table? At full price for more than years. Well, of course you're not. That wouldn't make any sense. But it doesn't mean it's impossible to get what you want. You just have to have the right representation. And that's what you get when you deal with Bruce would burn a cross country mortgage, the loan arranger for 7 to 509144. So am I. Here to help you with your refi 100% want to save your money, But here's the deal. I'm super passionate about helping buyers get the best mortgage.

We just have to pray. And i hope it's happening. I hope there's a giant veiled operation underway. There aren't reports that both french and british forces have entered the city of kabul to extract americans extract allies their own people. We have to hope that the rules of engagement are at least as as flexible for america's troops and that secrecy is necessary here. If there's an act going on if in fact we have some sort of inchon.

The thing we're we're we're working against right now is time and space and we want to get as many people out of kabul as we can In as little amount of time as we can or no hostile interactions right now between american forces and the taliban and we wanna keep it that way okay and we hope it does stay that way. We appreciate you coming. I'm not sure we do hope it stays that way. We need to get the americans out and whatever it takes to be the message. This appears to be a message to the taliban.

Us and uk soldiers who are not allowing people in you have mixed messaging coming through about what kind of paperwork you need and how you can get on flight of where you can go is just an absolute mess and we heard. President biden say yesterday in his comments to abc news. This is not a failure. And i think a lot of people outside that airport particularly those taking the kinds of extreme actions were talking about would like to know if this is failure. What does failure look like. Exactly that is well. Put center tom. Cotton on with harris faulkner on fox. They cut number. Twenty harris president biden confronting the consequences of his catastrophic miscalculation of his horrific execution of the decision withdraw our troops from afghanistan and he is spinning that relentlessly to try to convince the american people that everything is okay. The taliban cooperating. They're acting civilized government when nothing could be farther from the truth and that. Abc interview even had to be pressed to acknowledge that yes. Perhaps we'll stay on the ground past verse but if our government can't even say how many american citizens we have what's gonna stop. Joe biden from rolling up things and flying out on august with thousands of american citizens lepine. Let me just say this harris. A lot of people have been speaking this week about comparisons to saigon nineteen seventy five. What increasingly worries me is the scenario tehran. Nineteen seventy nine. When fifty two hostages held by the ayatollah paralyzed american foreign policy for more than year imagine if the taliban has effective hostage control of thousands of americans who are stranded afghanistan. It would be a catastrophe. Senator cotton is reacting to a couple of comments made by administration spokespeople yesterday again. Admiral kirby this time at the pentagon podium saying this cut number sex how many americans american citizens remain in. And i don't know the state department would be a better place to go for. An estimate of how many americans are afghanistan or in and around kabul. That is not a figure that the united states military would would no and i think you also not every american citizen in another country. There's no obligation that they registered their presence and and that we can have a perfect accurate count so over to the state department where administration spokesman price said this. Cut number one. Have no numbers. I know that you've mentioned the thousand seven thousand. You can't break it down. You have said specifically that you have notified. All americans are to get out of state. Is there any rough idea of the number any character characterization you can give clearly they have given you this information. Clearly they are trying to get out. Is there any idea of how many americans are still trying to get out of afghanistan. We have been in contact with the americans who have requested to be repatriated. We're does not in a position to give a number right now. We're more broadly not in a position to offer an aggregate figure because we are putting forward offers to individuals who may be interested in relocating in some cases. They may opt not to come to the airport. They made up not to be relocated. For whatever reason when you guys pulled people at a different countries during cova christina. Give a country where we're talking about a very different universe or we're talking about american citizens. We're talking about third-country nationals. We're talking about afghan nationals. We're asking about american citizens. How many americans have contacted you and asked to get out. Why can't you live. And if you're making these deals to people who have not specifically reached out to you to say hey. We're trying to get out of here does that. Is that going to make this a longer process going back to her question. Is this going to extend this mission. Further and further past that august thirty first. The president has spoken to this. You've heard from the pentagon this morning as well. We're going to do as much as we can. For as long as we. This is incoherence and that is why. If in fact there's an inch option being executed underdeveloped. Secrecy it will get many academy awards because this just appears to be complete executive branch collapse. I would add to this ned. Price again at the state department. Cut number two are. Imperative is to relocate as many people as quickly as we can and we've seen the reports of congestion. My understanding is that things are moving quite efficiently at this hour at the airport at the airport now But every report. We see someone unable to reach. The airport is of concern i.

I will run through a wall for you. You have me fired up jacked up. You're absolutely right. When you see the quarterback out there running winstons you get out. There and run wind sprints it. What's going on with the other team in texas. What's happening with the texans play on professional football games this year. Yeah you feel so bad for david. Kelly friend of mine. We go way way back. We started our careers they simply gathered in. I was covering them. Fulltime and and he was a young coach spare. It's so we kind of went to camp together at the same time so we kind of moved through two weeks together and so happy to see him finally get a head. Coaching job which he tells me was going to be his last coaching job. But you would think it would be whatever happens but he. He's such a good coach. And such a good motivator for guys. And i know the guys if it's certainly taken a liking to him right away. They love what he brings. But there's shots not much town there and you look at that team and you wonder how they're going to win any games at all. We figure they're going to win. One or two and divisions certainly does not look too good outside of tennessee. So they'll have a chance to win some of those games within their division. No question but i really sat for him his head coaching opportunity. And this is forty has to work with because it doesn't look very good and they certainly looks like the worst team in the nfl. This season surprise. They don't want to play games. And do some something unexpected. But i you know again on paper it just. They don't look very good to me. Shreen williams joins us show pro football talk. Ben lyons in for rich on the rich eisen show. We've been celebrating tom. Brady's forty fourth birthday today. Just going to town on some khumbu. Cha's some sunflower seeds. Some kale chips really getting crazy here in the studio i wonder sharing. Is there anybody out there in the nfc that you really can rival tb twelve and the tampa bay buccaneers when they run it back this year. Well i think you know the first team to look at right is the packers just because They did get aaron rodgers back and they got to the nfc championship game. And they actually hosted that game. Maybe if they'd gone for the touchdown instead of kicking the so go. Maybe they ended up pulling that game out. Who knows so you know. I think that's team you look at it right away as as being the contender to knock off the buccaneers. I think they're clearly the second team in the nfc and all those teams in the nfc west. Look good to me. You know. I i like we all bring but you know we keep talking about the reims in matthew stafford and you know he's going to be able to get the ball down the field and all that but i got to see it. I mean this guy who has won a playoff game and has it done what we thought he should have in the postseason even where he had some good teams in detroit and that was a while ago. So i'm gonna have to see it with matthew stafford in rams clearly. Probably the best team. He's played with in his career. But i'm gonna have to see before. I believe it with the rams and seattle was fulsome. They're going be able to get over that play on top that they haven't been able to do since early in russell's career when they had those back to back super bowl period and that's part of the problem with Being disgruntled with that team just the lack of postseason success since then and they just haven't shown they can get it done in the post season now. The cardinals again on paper. That look terrific. But is carla murder to take that next step. A lot of it falls his shoulders and So you look at those teams in the west. And i think they all look like they're pretty good teams. What i'm going to have to be better than the others and win the division. Obviously who that's going to be you couldn't say to me. They're all contenders from that division. Todd right now. But i mean clearly. It's the packers. If if you start looking everywhere else it's the packers are gonna be the biggest Contender for the buccaneers and that and then the division. How are the saints going to be. Who's gonna be your quarterback and you know. I think they're gonna win a lot of games. I think that'll be in the playoffs. I love sean payton. I think he's one of the best coaches if not the best coach in the nfl. Perhaps outside of bill ball check. But you know how's the quarterback situation wishing to be and again that's just a big question mark so to me the bucks in the packers start on my question more the two teams in the nfc that a a question mark like when what. They are excited teams. We don't know what they are. Maybe it's one of them. Turns out to be. Grayton has a terrific season but right now today all the rest of them have a ton of question. Mark serena williams joined the show ben lines in for rich on the rich eisen show shereen earlier on. We had greg rosenthal from nfl network call in and he was talking about how for reporters people like yourselves who cover the league. Just really nice to be able to be back at training camps into be out seeing people obviously the world shut down the last year and a half or so. You weren't able to have that experience last football season.

Yeah i'm waiting for the wrong. Been the ceremonies on thursday. And we'll get some cowboys camp when they come back and probably we'll get down to houston to see the taxes a little bit. So it's it's nice to be able to go to some of these camps at seeing a person and to be able to go to some preseason. Yeah we have the preseason last year so we're gonna unknown going into two last season more than years while we do have a lot of unknowns but more than usual last year because we didn't have the preseason games to see some of these young players seem like they like they normally would develop in the preseason when they get those. I mean it's not just so it but from our standpoint. It's just it's great to be back. It's great to talk to these people in person and see and then all sorts of things even the media. You know these are your friends and you haven't seen him her now at year and a half and Just been a long time but a weird year for everybody. I get it. But we're steve despite the delta very we're starting to return to little bit closer to normalcy.

Where'd you make by. Jerry's press conference where he's on his life journey and career with this cowboy team this year. You know. I haven't known jerry pretty well and had a chance to present him for the hall of fame and some of those things You know. I think he's seeing and and he knows that you know just based on his age. He's not gonna have a ton more chances. We talked about windows all the time. His little different wendell For different reasons because of his age and he sees that thing closing a little bit each of us know how long we have but his window obviously is inching down each year that that that's a year that he doesn't win another super bowl this that's gone by and there's one years that he gets a chance to do that and again it's been nineteen ninety five since they were there in one.

"I have been the burden of bringer joined by nick valley ben graphs make i understand. Denver did not wanna let you leave. I love denver ban. It's a cool city family in colorado. I had a lovely trip to see friends in person. And you know penn jump and do that. I don't pinch people rude but you know like enjoy their company and person for the first time in quite a while but then i wanted to go home because i was tired and the denver airport was like no. You live here now. So my understanding is that the airport lost power. I mean i witnessed that. I saw the power Fritz in and out was there which was strange. 'cause you'd think that of all the places that really don't ever lose power that the airport would be high on the list you think you'd want to generate her. Some sort of redundant system set up at an airport. Well in the speed with which the power came back on made me think that actually all of those systems worked exactly the way they were supposed to write. That's good but it did cause some issues. And then the plane. Coming to denver to take me back to phoenix. Was i think on the tarmac. For like two hours and then by the time it arrived there rules about how long a flight crew can be active for safety right. You don't want you don't want sleepy pilots that'd be bad so that crew couldn't fly again for everyone's benefit and then there was another crew that was supposed to come but they got delayed waiting on a crew from philadelphia. So anyway i was supposed to be home by like six. Pm last night. And the actual time i got home was close to one. Am so that seems like a long time for flight. That's like an hour forty minutes. Yeah i think it only takes twelve hours or so to drive for denver to phoenix. You probably could've made it just about the same time. So and the other thing about it is that i have. Because i as i mentioned i have family in colorado. I've flown in and out of denver at least once a year for pretty much every year of my life. And i. I swear that the the dia has been under construction that entire time that it is just cicely under construction that there's always a thing in a widget. Now what have you. That needs to be remedied. In some way. And so. I think that the combination of the current construction that they are doing and then the continued sort of aftermath of cova things. Close on those concourses real early. There's some mad dash to get a sandwich before everything closed so it was just. It was a long time. What are you gonna do. It's nobody's nobody's fault. You just sit there and roll with the punches and i edited a piece and scheduled up for this morning and future. Meg was really happy that passed. Meg did that. Because then i just Slept in a little bit this morning. So it all worked out fine. Everyone got home safely. Which is the most important thing not flight crews flew while feeling sleepy. It's all it's all good. But i was sitting there and i thought to myself you know it's nice to feel inconvenienced and sort of put upon in a normal way because we spent so much of the last year being put upon and inconvenience in an extraordinary and terrifying and sometimes devastating way kind of say. When was the last time you were able to tell a nightmare travel story. We've all had those experiences. But since two thousand nine hundred for most of us. So that's something so that was something and then i wondered. How long will. I be able to maintain that perspective before. I am just actively annoyed by the situation. And i don't know if. I just transitioned into being tired quickly enough. It i didn't have the energy couldn't muster the to be more actively annoyed than i was but it all worked out fine. It had been it. Had been more than years since i had had the. Oh i am bone tired from work. Related travel feeling so that was new to re familiarize myself with well. The novelty of air travel mishaps probably wears off pretty quickly. I've had some heroin flights in and out of denver or over denver just because of the turbulence and feared for my life on multiple occasions but that is also heroin in a way not able to take off at all so for a solid several hours there because you were not the only baseball media number who was marooned in denver. Baseball twitter was like. I'm stuck at the airport. The power is out. So i was following along with everyone else. I was not in view of anyone else. And i was sort of sad about it. I was like you know at some point. I'm hoping that the you know. The suspects boys will just walk by. And we'll start playing with a wall in the terminal or something like that. But i just had to content myself for the last one so well not an ideal ending to the all-star break but the rest of it was pretty good. Did you have any thoughts about the all star game which took place after. We recorded our preceding episode. You know i found myself just enjoying the hell out of the all star game in. I did not anticipate i. You know from start to finish jusu really. I really enjoyed it. I mean i. I know a number of people commented on this. I could've stood to see a little more otani into thiessen that game. But i also like that. They prioritize like getting everybody in because i think that for fan bases especially of teams where it's like pirates fan right. So you're having to live that reality every day. But you'll have to aol. All-star a you have to all-star starters that's hard to say in sequence which is why it and you get to like see like adam frazier be really in the middle of stuff i don't know i just thought it was great fun. I think that opinions vary on the miked up stuff and we should have only talk about the hundreds experience but the reaction that tetteh had.

This is all stuff that we've seen before But i totally agree. Kevin hart was gray in this film. I mean one win. He first finds out his wife died in the hospital. Like i was heartbreak broken by you. Know because of him his performance in he has other times where he's really authentic and real in this movie And i think it did. Elevate this this film but overall it's not that great. I mean it's just. It's just stuff that we've seen before you know now is just kevin hart in the role But i did enjoy the three guys together figuring stuff out you know. And it's nice that he had moments like when they went back and showed us moments of him. Being a dad like how little rail saw him saw her take her first steps and were able to have that bond. Share that moment together. Because normally you would have you know with your significant other but he was still able to share with other people and it was really nice but Yeah this is a perfect netflix. Sort of movie Sort of same thing as saying about luca And yeah i mean it's it's it's good isn't father's day coming out soon so i think the perfect for that sort of a time. It's it's good to see. I don't know like a single dab you know sort of movie out because normally we see like a lot of mom stuff so it was good overall is perfectly find felt. Well i'll even say 'cause. Now what's i i think is what will why probably may have liked to alone more than years than yeah and i mean it is tv level. I mean it is again going for the very safe mel. It's never like drawing in a deep compensate it could have. I mean it could definitely make a statement about the single dad and families that do go through. Were get when you are in that situation.

You better not screw this up. She's gonna be staying with us. We don't trust you. Honestly though i think what needs to be given credit here is that is a film. That is still trying. Something is not going at least completely lazy. It just it almost like we're gonna hit that saying that the td fill where we can be easy crowd-pleaser because it does get high user reviews. Because i mean they're people wa home they're like oh this is sweet. I wanna root for that person but something very important about this is that this is a cast of all almost all black actors and actresses with a few like handful of white actors included but with a white director. And why that's important. Is that the fact that this is so respectful to our lease for even looking at us. Like nobody is playing a stereotype. It's ni- even going into like people from the hood or anything like that. It's really showing people as people and the director had a very mature way of handling their handling diversity in the row. Where you know. People have concerns about our white directors having are leading an products with mostly black characters. And i think he did a great job..

He's done a lot for a good things for serbia and with his charity foundation of isley. Nerve for people here and he's attitude you know with the with like an ordinary man is something that maybe feels. He's and he's the most successful out that we ever had yet. But that passion that you're referring it's not the it's not more exponentially it's how you should. You should see the way. When the for example. Our basketball national team is playing an important match and import competition. I mean we all go crazy. There's no one. There's no one in the streets and the it's not like it's not the get. Everybody loves knowledge. Here is not universally loved. I mean you. Sometimes the comments for example on sports cloud or some other websites each know that he's the universal love of maybe some of the year guys may be preceded that way so there. There's there's a lot of critics on the on the way. Sometimes the way he behaves on the board or if he said something or if he's done something socially not just not just status wise. I mean for our culture. I mean he knows that we've spoken about in in some interviews in some media conference about his His patrician it's it's something totally foreign to an average the never serbian. I mean a lot of me too. We are bride for movie. You're proud the cuisine and everything. So he's got. She is not irregular trips. Sometimes sometimes i mean when you see him on the court and the way he stays composed away. He became a disciplined. He's he's go more of a german mentality than serbian but sometimes sometimes that serbia mentality you know helps him go over at the last hurdle he meant. You mentioned One thing that you one thing you said Which was interesting. I wanted to three step back to his layers of his his persona. And i guess are there other. What do you think of those if you can explain that a little bit more in terms of what people see as as being his persona in serbian how different and and also if you can also say how different it is than it is in from what you understand if perceived in western media. I think that the it's a it's a it's really simple. I mean it's like everyone has their good size and bedsides bedsides. Everyone had the. I'm on done good things on the some not so good things in their lives about the perception here. Is that the in the west. Those bad things are more emphasized and the good things are not being talked about enough. I mean we could go. We could go on about this forever. And i but i think that is the key and when i said layers on persona i covered one aspect of it. The tradition and they mean a the meditation and the whole approach to life which is a which is very changed to what it was at the beginning of his career even and obviously he is walled and his changed as a person but at the same time At the same time my like he's like approach to people. You know as i said ordinary people i liked the way he talks to depress because even if he sometimes i remember i think it will be too when she spoke for like twenty hours. After the. Gimelstob saying yeah. Yeah wasn't that there was no there was before that it was it was it was after stop and it was about to elect replacement for gimelstob seat on the board and i asked him get the he can be stuff. Yeah he he. He respect you as a journal. Send a what what he what he always says. It's real part of the same story of sports and everything he doesn't live on anyone light from a heist. No i i agree with that. That's that is one thing. I appreciate about him. The most and professionally. I liked him because even though his his become more diplomatic. Maybe gives you good. Bouncers you can. You can work with that. The just regular cliches everything. Sometimes he does but when he gets the same question like twenty times when he pulls out the cliches but usually usually go downstairs from my professional point of view. That's why like working with the two. More things i i. I'm curious if i haven't seen you in more than years. I've been to talk to you.

Now we have the DAX and the CAC and negative territory. The foot's he headed. Very much that direction the S and P 500 itself down 2/10 of 1%, and it looks like the trend is lower. Let's bring in Dave Wilson. Bloomberg stocks boss for looking What's going on, Dave. What gives It looks like just some fairly broad based weakness. And he got 9 11 main industry groups in the S and P 500. Lower technologies is an exception. So is the consumer discretionary category which is getting some help from Shall we say the reopening place notably Considine owes MGM resorts up 4% biggest gain in the S and P. 500 JP Morgan, raising its rating on that stock and So you're seeing some of the other record Zinos move along as well. Caesar's up 2.3% Wynn Resorts up 1.7% and on the other hand, and let's just say the idea of combining Warner Media with discovery is being panned in the marketplace For a second day. 18 T. Dan almost 7% steepest drop In the S and P 500 discovery with those two classes of shares in the index. Both of them are off more than 3.5%. So right there, you're talking about the three biggest declines in the index right now. The day we had some some of the retailers report. And is it just the crazy comparisons? The last year or so we did. The company's talk about some real reopening stuff. Well, the in terms of the reaction. It's sort of all over the map in a sense me Wal Marts numbers certainly well received. You know, when you look at that stock being up 2.6% at the moment, Home Depot a different story, it seems initially the shares rose. And it's understandable because you know their earnings and revenue for the physical force First quarter were well above analysts, average estimates and Bloomberg survey. If you just focused in on sales at stores up more than years, same store since there are 31% And yet the stock's down 7/10 of a percent, so it presumably it's like people can look at the numbers and said, Yeah, we expected that the housing market's going great, you know, look at what's happening. The lumber prices and, of course, Home Depot. Wa sells a board or two it stores and so you know, you put it all together. People just aren't impressing we can throw in Macy's in the mix. You know that Cos a lot smaller than Wal Mart and Home Depot when you're looking market value. Nonetheless, it's another retail industry gauge, and the shares are down 1/10 of a percent or boosted their forecasts. Absolutely. They raised their full year forecast they had a first quarter profit than analysts weren't expecting. And again. People just aren't impressed. The shares have quadrupled in the last 12 months. So people there is have you know, I mean, Macy's has gone from 5 to 20 in the past 12 months s. Oh, that makes sense. Wal Mart, on the other hand, has gone from 127 to 142 in the last 12 months hasn't had nearly The run. If you haven't doubled in the last 12 months, Are you really a successful company? Well, you have to look at it this way. Wal Mart didn't have the kind of collapse in its business that Macy's had. You know how many times over the last few years? You talk about department stores? People don't want to go there. They can't compete online and, of course, so much selling has shifted. Toward websites. You know, that's that's really the challenge and Macy's way down, then way back. WalMart holding relatively steady over that time period, Certainly when you compare it to the likes of Macy's In one of the data points during this pandemic, Dave Economic Data points It's really fascinated me. The entire pandemic has been housing market. It's been so strong on got some housing starts. Fell by more than forecast in April. That's not because people want to buy houses. It's just supply chains and stuff and that you need to build the house and the price of lumber is going through the roof. And that's probably the driver. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, you know, new homes have gotten a whole lot more expensive just in terms of the costs. And, of course, the builders have to pass those onto potential buyers. And maybe they can, and maybe they can't. But you're looking across all the builders and S and P s indexes. S and P 500 Mid calf Small cap unit. They're all down at the moment. Which kind of tells you something right there. Anything else going on, besides, really, the retail earnings say Well, I mean, there's always plenty going on. I mean, is there anything big? You know? I mean, retail earnings are big you have. I think that J P. Morgan News. This is big. Maybe because I'm a former banker, but You know, definitely shuffling the deck chairs, maybe setting up air apparent race for Jamie Diamond. But the stock's not not doing exactly that. Anything that happens in terms of the top management of that company. It's going to take awhile to play out. You know, was it Jamie Diamond said. He's gonna be around for five more years. Something like that. So you know, it's not like all these changes are necessarily going to sort of influence the business right away, which is, of course, what people are focused on. And you know, you look at J. P. Morgan shares and you say they're up almost 30% this year. So you know financial companies, one of the areas that people have focused on in terms of, you know, where's the value in the market? So they've been the beneficiary of that shift among a lot of investors and it is obviously a big story. We're going to follow it very closely. Wouldn't get someone to talk about what we do. We do. We got a nice awesome. Okay. So we have Allison Williams, I gather is the ace of whom you are speaking. But obviously in the retail side of things, you you get a pretty great read of Not only what U. S consumers are doing in three very separate areas, right? Because you've got you know, home depots of the world have been doing well throughout the pandemic. Wal Mart, You know you can't live without Wal Mart, so it's not like There was ever a thought that nobody would go there anymore, even if you order stuff online and Amazon, whereas Macy's I mean, you know, Maces is only half of what it was five years ago. You know, Walmart is five times what it was five years ago. So I think it's pretty cool that we have that read energy shares. They're just getting crushed, though. Today they're down. Big and I wonder how much that has to do with an outlook. I mean, there's always that just looking a crude oil, though it's not moving up so that that may well be part of the mix, too. Just in terms of retail real fast Tomorrow you get the same look. Target. Yep. Lows. TJX which is T. J.
