"Pretty Gupta and Sonali Bostic. Are standing by pretty. Let's start with you one of the markets reacting to today, it's all about that tech out performance today You really saw that in a reaction to that 10 year yield. Even look at the chart behind me right from the top. U. S. And P 500, the green ones that NASDAQ out performance once again that really caught my eye. It's not just big Tak lifting the major averages. Emily, You're also singing in the semi Conductors Index once again a very broad bid for tech. Today, I do wanna flip up the boards and look at the NASDAQ 100 because, of course, we know that's an index has had a little bit of pain. But look at this on a 30 year time frame, And I'm bringing this to you because I want you to go look at it in comparison to the 1999 tech bubble. You're seeing further along that charge every good luck coming out last week and saying that this ratio the NASDAQ 100 relative to the S and P 500 is the ratio you want to watch. And this is, of course, a chart of just the former, But if you were to look at them on a comparison basis, you can see those same bubble levels being tested right now, so extremely important from a macro point of view. Also important from a macro point of view is just how electric vehicles are really reacting. Of course, that was the story of the fourth quarter of 2020. But now just look at the outperforms that you're seeing compared to the likes of Tesla, which was, of course, the original electric vehicle named entered the S and P 500. You can really see the out performance in the drive E t F that holds all of those electric vehicle makers. Relative to Tesla, which is just up 0.3% in the last few months. Shonali over to you. Pretty of course, you know, we saw those retail traders happy into Bitcoin over the weekend and Bitcoin really coming down today. Trading a little over $5600. You know, Deutsche Bank is now saying that retail traders individuals ages 25 to 34 maybe spending about 50% of their stimulus checks on retail trades. Do you do sell sea rises in Bitcoin miners and brokerages that includes riot Blockchain Marathon Digital Boyett Voyager Digital Galaxy Digital That's Mike Nova gratis firm. But you also have the reddit and mean stock Still riding up word today, send out growers of America expressed costs all of those still up on the day. We do expect more retail checks to hit. Later this week, So keep an eye on those retail trade. Emily All right, Shonali. Thanks so much. And of course, we are beating the drum towards the coin based direct listing, which were expecting in a couple of weeks. Meantime, now that the stimulus has passed, President Biden is turning his attention to tax reform as he's planning the first major tax hike since 1993 joining us now Bloomberg's Laura Davis and Laura tell us what we know. About Biden's plan. Bike plan there. It was really kind of a twofold process that they're looking at first. They want to roll back the trump tax cut very short lives back in 2017. The corporate rate came down and looking at pushing the corporate tax rate back up to around 28%. Came for upper income taxpayers. Those earning about $400,000 more kick that tax rate back up to about 40% there as well. After those have been reversed. There's more ambitious plans that they're looking at looking at things like capital gains rates so low your taxes on investment, increasing those significantly, particularly for people who make a million dollars or more looking at small business taxation, looking at the estate tax is that there's a lot of plans in the works. Nothing is set yet, but they're they're trying to figure out you know how this fits into his broader infrastructure plan and how much they need to pay for with these tax increases. This as we're heading into taxis and crunch time, Laura what's a sort of time line for something like this to actually come together and get you know both parties on side? Well, this will be definitely slower moving that we saw with the stimulus bill that just passed. This is going to take Ah, lot of time for Congress to get sorted out. You know if they're calling it an infrastructure bill, But there really were looking at infrastructure, energy policy, education policy. Health policy s. Oh, they're Democrats kind of sorting out what will be in this broader Bill Pelosi's and Humor has kind of instructed lawmakers to work with Republicans working the other side of the aisle. It's unclear yet if this will be a bipartisan bill, or this will be similar to the stimulus legislation that Democrats will ultimately decide to go it alone. So they're kind of in that initial stages right now. I expect that will see more details come out later in the spring, you know, maybe around may over the summer that the negotiations will intensify and White House and leaders in Congress are looking to pass something early fall around September time. Well, I wonder if there's something about the optics of this, you know, with the administration want the U. S and most Americans to be through the pandemic crisis. You know when they're when they're hiking taxes, at least when it comes to vaccinations and more people getting back to work. And this is kind of one of the things that still kind of being figured out. They, the White House and congressional leaders have said they won't make the taxes retroactive. They won't go back to the start of 2021, for example. But they could kick in and soon a 2022. So they're very closely watching where the economy is where consumer sentiment is, you know with taxes, you could always phase them in, so maybe only have like a slight increase in year one. Over a several year period. All of those things are still to be decided. But that's one thing that the more cautious members of the administration are a little bit concerned about of doing too much too soon on the tax run. All right. Bloomberg's Lord Davison on the tax beat for us. Thanks So much for that update. We're gonna talking a lot more about the stimulus plan, as well as President Biden's proposed tax plan with special guest throughout the week. Join us. All week.

With Travel at Historic Low, Investors Buy Billion-Dollar Stake in Expedia
"How does a little holiday in the Scottish highlands sound lovely? Even during this lockdown plenty of people thought so and reserve properties for rent on the global travel website booking dot com in fact so many tourists continue to putter about the Scottish countryside that it alarmed the locals like rural residents all over they feared travelers might bring Kobe. Nineteen with them at overwhelmed. Small hospitals and so in Blackford. The areas presumably exasperated member of parliament asked booking dot com to quit offering reservations for the bucolic countryside. Finally last week the giant travel company complied. Now you can't get a reservation at a cottage in the Scottish highlands until may ninth or later at least not on booking dot com so reports the Scottish newspaper the National. So why am I telling you this? Little story well because it offers a small taste of the big problems facing the travel industry like so many other industries. Covert nineteen is upended everyone in the travel business from tiny. Bnb's to the largest players that's especially true of booking dot coms biggest rival expedia travel and its parent company. Expedia group in addition to owning. Its namesake reservation site. Expedia group owns other household. Names including travelocity ORBITZ HOTELS DOT COM B. R. B. O. And home away just to name a few the multibillion dollar travel conglomerate however is far less steady than it had appeared to be back in December it ousted. Ceo REPORTEDLY DUE TO DISAGREEMENTS WITH CHAIRMAN. Buried diller and the board over Corporate Strategy Diller who also runs entertainment giant. I A C took over day to day responsibilities along with board vice-chair Peter Kern in February prior to the couvert nineteen onslaught in the US. The company announced what it called disappointing twenty nineteen earnings. It announced plans to lay off three thousand people or about twelve percent of its workforce at the time diller called the company's Sclerotic in bloated sclerotic by the way means rigid or slow to change. Not exactly a compliment. He planned to streamline the business which he believed had become too large and complex by the end of February. The company had put plans in place to save three hundred to five hundred million expenses annually and then the virus which had already been wreaking havoc globally hit the US hard. The effect on the travel industry is beyond devastating the US Travel Association estimates losses of more than five hundred billion dollars in direct travel spending. That's nine times worse than the impact on the travel industry after nine eleven according to Forbes sadly the travel association predicts more than eight million. Us travel industry workers will have lost their jobs by the end of this month. And if the pandemic is devastating most businesses those with fragile foundations like expedia are scrambling to ensure they'll survive last week. Expedia received a promise of a rescue package to private equity firms Apollo global management and silverlake are buying a stake in the company for one point. Two billion dollars that alone however may not be enough to help it withstand the travel slump. So expedia is also borrowing another two billion dollars to give it more liquidity. The company says along with announcing the deal expedia also named Peter Kern as CEO observers say. Kern who has roots in private equity will be well suited to the moment meaning. He'll be comfortable cutting jobs and expenses. The big question of course is not just who will survive. But who will thrive after the pandemic crisis abates and investment in a travel business? Even at CEO prices could be seen as a positive sign. Long-term read Raymond a partner at Apollo Management said in a statement. Expedient is a world class company with an unparalleled collection of online travel brands. He added that the firm which will take a seat on expedience. Board looks forward to collaborating on expedia growth and innovation

"What are you save forty three percent todd? I'm like wow. That's not bad. I was thinking I was Gonna be like ninety percent. You're exactly right. They made the point. Things were actually going well at the beginning of the quarter. Second Quarter is going to be much much worse than that. Yes I mean that company is in. May can't think of a maybe a tougher situation because in addition to this reorganization that they were going through right before this many people in the Seattle area now they also just spent massive amounts of money to take over this beautiful waterfront campus on the western part of Seattle and that alone is just this massive expense that they do not need on their books at this time. So you combine the reorganization the massive office expansion. Which you know. They spent several hundreds of millions of dollars on and the just the overall travel industry and they are. I would not want to be in their shoes right now. It's certainly turnaround story I think Barry Diller and Peter Kern can turn this thing around. I think they'll have a hell of a story to tell to your point John. One of the footnotes in the financial filings that I was looking at said that expedia will temporarily halt construction on most real estate projects including the company's headquarters and will consider quote further opportunities to differ other capital expenditures. That are not critical to our operations. I know they had additional expansion plans at the interbay campus. But I mean it had largely been retrofitted and I mean they. They have moved in there. I mean it's not like you know in. This is the weird thing about this and I know we're going to get into this where we have my my Richter scale on company. This the timing of this can hit companies in very different ways like if you just raised a big round of capital in December of venture backed startup. Like you're probably in okay shape but if if you raise that capital eighteen months ago and then now you're you're just going into your next funding cycle and you just took on a giant lease at some new office space. You're kind of screwed. Well speaking of Expedia they fall in an interesting place on this Richter scale. The scale that we've been talking about we're GONNA get into that coming up after the.

"Hey you're alive. You're back living the life here in the basement shower in the PJ's days of equal everybody. Welcome to Geekwire. I'm geekwire editor. Todd Bishop I'm GEEKWIRE CO founder. John Cook. It's funny about five minutes before we started recording here. My neighbor decided that it was time nine in the morning to start mowing his lawn. So it's just part of life life in the pandemic right yeah. I'm sure there'll be a dog barking. A kid yelling or a vacuum going at some point on my end or it so we are coming to you from geekwire in Seattle from our respective homes where we get the report each day on. What's happening around us in Tech Science and Innovation? What happens here matters everywhere as we like to say. And every week on the show we get to talk about some of the biggest and most interesting stories. We've been covering coming up this week roaring back not so fast. Bill Gates offers a pragmatic. Take on life. After lockdown expedia group shakes up. Its business again and speaking of shaking things up we will offer our own Richter scale of sorts or maybe we can call it the cook scale since you came up with this John. But we'RE GONNA UNDERSTAND HOW. The pandemic is stirring some companies to greatness and shaking others to their core. How do you like that? Sounds great excited to hear this? Plus highlights from a Geekwire Webinar with two veteran technology and business leaders in the Seattle Area. Talking about pivoting a business during a pandemic and why the best way to do it. Well in the long run might be an approach. That wouldn't have seemed quite right before. So that's all coming up this week but John. I wanted to start with Bill Gates. He's kind of become the the voice of the pandemic in some ways or at least the voice of reason in the Pandemic Bill Gates and Dr Faucher. Up to folks that are probably at least in. My view are providing the most inciteful information as it relates to navigating this dangerous situation. This Week Bill Gates came out with a new blog post. It was about sixty three hundred words. I put it into Microsoft word to figure out exactly how long it was. It was as I would describe it. Starkly pragmatic it was certainly a contrast with some of the rhetoric. That's been coming out of the White House in terms of our prospects for returning quickly from the lockdowns and shelter in place orders that we've all been under for in many cases more than a month now John. I was actually on the phone quoting this to you this week because I think it does have implications for everybody. Bill Gates said they were very much going to be doing this. Gradually this is not going to be a boom. We're back in business moment when we get out of the lockdown and there are a couple of quotes. That really stuck out to me. He said picture restaurants that only seat people at every other table and airplanes where every middle seat is empty. Schools are open. But you can't fill a stadium with seventy thousand people. People are working some and spending some money but not as much as they were before the pandemic in short times or abnormal. But not as have normal during the first phase which we're in now and then lastly like big picture. He said if in the spring of two thousand twenty one people are going to public events like a game or concert in a stadium. It will be because we have a miraculous treatment that made people feel confident about going out again and he went on to explain that. That miracle is unlikely to happen. That it's probably going to take longer than a year for us to get back to any sense of normality. How are you feeling about this at this point John? And and do you take comfort in the pragmatism there or do you get frustrated with the amount of time that it's going to take on my feeling about. I'm not feeling good. Certainly but if you believe in science and rational thought and how you have to think about a crisis like this I think you can only put faith in weight behind. What experts have to say about where we're headed? I've also been listening to the daily podcast from the New York Times and have really enjoyed. They're listening to their science reporter. Who's been kind of on the mark on this from the very early stages of it and kind of echoing very much along the same lines of what Bill Gates has been saying the other thing. That's just scary about this from his reporting when you think about what you need need either need Mike wide-scale testing so everybody knows whether they've been exposed or not allowing you to go back in interact with society or you need a vaccine and vaccine as I have learned is very hopeful to even get that created within the next eighteen months the fastest vaccine ever created was the mumps vaccine created in about four years. So there is a scenario here were even eighteen. Months is extremely optimistic thinking and so that is where it gets pretty scary and pressing that this is not only a eighteen months problem Potentially afford a five year problem there certainly have been very many advances and technology in terms of potentially speeding up a vaccine that would combat cove in nineteen. But there's no guarantee either. It's it's completely unknown. So it's that's what gives me a lot of pauses. Just the uncertainty around all of it in that uncertainty was apparent in bill. Gates's blog post to your point. John he said it could be two years. It could be eighteen months. He actually cited the possibility of a potentially being as little as nine months but even if they did create a vaccine nine months at least from my understanding and my reading of the situation. It doesn't seem like we're putting in the manufacturing capacity to even get to the point that they could produce it at a wide enough scale that if you needed one or two shots of it that they could get six hundred million doses of it out just in this country alone. So it's you know I think there's GonNa be a supply chain bottleneck as it relates to even if the vaccine is created miraculously in a short period of time and based on what I've seen as it relates to how we've been able to roll out testing. I don't give a lot of. I don't have a lot of hope that we can quickly roll out vaccine across the country by the way. I've been listening to the daily as well as the New York Times podcast and the Science and health report that you referenced was Donald G McNeil Junior. He's been remarkable in his ability to predict not just predict but to get clear sense for what's ahead based on the science and I think that to me is one of the biggest takeaways here. Is that if ever? There was a time to to tune out the politics to look to people who are dealing with actual epidemiological data and experience. Now is it. And that's one of the reasons. Why when Bill Gates comes out with a sixty three hundred word memo? I'm diving into it and trying to understand it not only to report on it but to really get a sense for where we're headed. Yeah tied another thing. I don't know if you were falling the slack thread last night but I was on with. Taylor soper are managing editor. Because I finally got caught up to another plug I know. We've plugged the daily as a podcast. But you know I've been a huge fan of the PBS frontline documentary series for many years. Will this week. They're they're episode was on was called a tale of two Washington's and it was this contrast between Washington state and the reaction to Kobe. Nineteen and Washington. Dc At it is absolutely fascinating and pretty shocking and frankly it made me proud to be arrested in Washington State I think this has been a very complex and tough situation across the board and certainly things could have been done sooner or better but I have a newfound confidence in how governor is in sleep. Mark Durkan Can County Executive Dow. Constantine have at least stepped up to use science and facts to try to drive decision making here and I highly recommend it and it's worth a worth a watch by all of our listeners out there you know it's interesting. I had not caught up without at all. This is actually a story. I think Taylor and I were just supposed to the story on that. Perhaps it sounds like what you're saying. Is that the Seattle process has been replaced with some level of Seattle pragmatism. Is that fair? There's there's been decent coordination decent reaction to the situation. And you know also providence. Health comes off looking very good in terms of how they were prepared how they had pandemic plan in place There was a doctor at Providence. Who responded to the first patient coming in the precautions? They took and how they responded. Responded to that was just exemplary and Kind of a playbook on how you react to append situation or somebody coming in with with a virus such as this and so really interesting comments from doctors. Patty Murray than their PA other politicians pretty pretty interesting reporting. I can't wait to watch it. Sounds Great On the topic of looking back at things that were happening a few months ago and then putting them in the context of what we now know has happened since Expedia was another fascinating story. That we've been tracking. They're a couple a couple of these companies in the Seattle area. That I've been thinking about expedia and Boeing and you are both of these companies. Were already like extremely rocky? Crazy lay on Boeing because of the the seven three seven Max problems and expedient because it had this wild management shake-up what happened last fall or December in December. And so they were already messed up and then you throw on top of it. They're both travel related organizations and so I said to a friend the other day. There's a scenario. Here where Boeing and Expedia just don't exist current form anymore. Now I know Boeing of course is their duopoly with Airbus. So it's the the. Us Government Not GonNa let Boeing I mean they probably truly are too big to fail. But it's not gonNA potentially not gonNA look anything like the Belene of of all the same with expedia. Yeah the the important qualifier on what she said there at the beginning is in their current form. And I think that is a potential with Boeing. Although as you say you've got to have planes right and that to some extent is what Barry diller expedient chairman has been coming back to As a fallback in his discussions of where that company is going and to your point they ousted the CEO and the CFO in December and really kind of started to take this company in a different direction. Much more Leaner Direction Berry. Diller's the former paramount pictures chairman and a longtime media mogul instrumental in the Fox network. And he has been a key shareholder in Expedia for years and has basically been taking a lead role in running this company day to day since the ouster of Marco Stroman and their CFO last year the CEO Mark Orchestra. N- The EXPEDIA. Cfo Year. This past week. They announced that they've raised an additional three point. Two billion dollars in debt and equity. They've named one of their longtime board members. Peter Kern as their new CEO. They announced additional cutbacks and salary reductions. And they said that. They've seen their gross bookings. Now gross bookings are not revenue. But they're this. Broad measure of how much money is flowing through the expedia platform people book hotels and planes and you know other types of travel and that's fallen as much as forty three percent since the first quarter last year that also includes the first quarter that includes January February. Yes doesn't even include probably the real heartache. What are you save forty three percent todd? I'm like wow. That's not bad. I was thinking I was Gonna be like ninety percent. You're exactly right. They made the point. Things were actually going well at the beginning of the quarter..

"Expedia names Peter Kern CEO and it's raising about three point two billion dollars of new capital and union Pacific seas freight volume down twenty five percent this quarter and that's a Bloomberg business slash Tom Donnelly said thank you thank you very much turning our attention now to Washington DC and the debate over immigration the president Donald Trump signed a good executive order just yesterday to temporarily curb the issuing of new green cards for would be permanent residence in the United States and Tom with the labor market heading the way it is I imagine this is just the beginning I would suggest the professionals I speak to on this Sir absolutely stunned at the action they don't have a strong opinion about it you know the actual receipt an ex couple weeks but they are stunned by the actioner totally rejoins us with Eurasia group to cover the territory here John just very simply our immigration and the president's desire here over six zero sixty days how many American jobs will he protect in that time very few minutes I think this is not necessarily about protecting jobs immediately I think it is more about setting up a dynamic and setting up the immigration issue to create a contrast with Joe Biden for the election in the fall immigration basically shut down the country the pharmacy the the applications are not processing green cards there's a connection here for temporary workers they didn't cover the H. one B. program on this a lot this order doesn't do it only for sixty days so the end of the sixty days okay yeah they got a look at it again play we can extend that service worth fighting for so that's where we are sixty one days out what would you suggest happens I think that they're probably gonna extend this I think that the president if you look at the groups that typically a support integration restrictions making arm on the president's announcement but I think the president also has a business constituency think about folks who need these immigrant workers and rely on them especially agricultural sector but I can accept this is red meat for the clinical case you've got to think that they're going to find a way to make this last longer than sixty days after that John weaver I'm sorry we live in this every day they they accepted medical workers agricultural workers in radio presenters from I think it's just great how they did that I think the full transparency just so the audience does not this is a process I'm going through so I won't be offering a judgment on this particular policy just as an observation though John you can see how this is going to be a huge focal point ahead of twenty twenty little bit later this morning we'll have an extra four point five million dollar jobless claims four point five million jobless claims according to the estimate that would take us to near twenty five million in five weeks this is gonna be a big debate and I just want to jump from your perspective because you've got to read the political tea leaves this is how the president is setting himself up for November does he manage to bring the left with him to the left come in on this topic or to make a further the other white I think if you look at Joe Biden's immigration plan it's automatic programs in the region plan but even more let me think that you've got the possibility of I would love for you and if people workers that are here the possibility of more workers coming into the plan so I think that we're the Democratic Party is certainly far left the president trump but you're right this is a sensitive issue and the human Gration is gonna be politically charged so I think the president doesn't did did we understand this is an issue that affects his daughter and you know they're fighting over the same voters in a couple of key battleground state in November so too but but we're Democratic Party is not where president trump is that they're gonna have to oppose this we'll find some you know cater question sensible policies that would allow immigrants coming we're needing or something like that John I was struck as I was researching this issue last night I was struck by the push back the president trump is getting out within the further right parts of the Republican Party basically saying this doesn't go far enough by any stretch of the imagination but if it is going to be extended it would have to be increased at all of the exemptions render it basically toothless how moderate is this on some levels within the framework of the Republican range of president trump I mean the reality is that the greatest carer if you don't like immigration the best cure for too many immigrants your country is what draws people to this country so you're gonna see integration numbers dropped dramatically throughout the course this year at the job market collapses while moderate extremists opposed to living in it you know we we don't usually banned green card after people so I think it's a fairly extreme but it's not nearly as far as some of his kind of principle organized supporters want to see which is why I think they're going down the road yeah this all came together pretty fast over the course of forty eight hours you may see this expanded in consultations with business leaders and heavily affected groups and of course the trump campaign I certainly think it's so much easier Richard today on this important political issue just because of time SPC John I think we have to swing back to claims this is the number of the week it is the litmus paper if you will for where is this nation economically frankly it falls into the immigration debate is well claims accountable one thing they are but to Lisa's point it's been pretty difficult to understand whether accurately reflects the pain people coming through right now because of process issues I'm processing the recipe leaflet set out that that might be it has been slow down perhaps in California more size and for that reason the perhaps five six million a week is the absolute Max but doesn't capture the potential of how high these claims could god that's reason why I'm curious to see how much claims are going to meet expectations or exceed them as Bloomberg intelligence's expects because if we get that five and a half million claims number are we basically just looking at an uncountable flood of unemployment that's just hitting up against the processing restraints and and that to me is a really key question do do we all agree that the song hear from experts is thirty million is where we're heading isn't this a one off of my opinion on that but given the direction of travel we got three right now the short yourself to understand these very very difficult to gauge week to week whether this is just to give you a decent rate on that three million is the low estimate add to this claim sprint and most six million is the height that is a pretty large spread just think about that what we were doing on claims before all of this to in two thousand two hundred fifty dollar were up to eighteen thousand now now we're talking about three million spread between the law when the high estimate will send a ticket because the lack of understanding of what we're up against I mean if you think about a company like hertz rental cars it seemed fairly solvent earlier this year within the span of less than two months now looks like it's on the brink of bankruptcy if you look at bond prices images shows the reversal in fortunes how quickly how unexpected the model that in a big way correct don replied that he can always just run to get to me saying that there is a case where people are getting rejected then reapplying so potentially double counting coins as well to catch up with help later this week and some of the words me the claims number up.
