San Diego Enters the Red Tier
"Welcome to southern california real estate report. This is bob mcguire. Daniel wise come into from san diego. California reopening sandiego reopened a red tier san diego. Right pretty exciting. So so what does this mean really for us so it. There's there's some right there's some honest it doesn't mean anything but i'm not gonna sit inside and san diego weather right now and other at a restaurant but you know what it does mean that the world i was opening up restaurants precise operate at twenty five percent capacity inside museums could operate inside a twenty five percent capacity. Haven't been very perk is open so all in all the fun things seaworld you know. I don't know what to say about seaworld. But so they offer operate again inside. I think they've been able to operate outside museums but now they can go back to operating inside right in time for our summer. Tourism season right and saint patrick's day right so which this is going to post just the day after saint patrick's day but it was a big deal so going into the red tier for that particular day. It was big deal. So i go to this really like super great little deli down in down by san diego state. Right and it's it's a real popular one. I don't know if you've ever been to it. it's It's it's like a little jewish deli called What is it called. I cannot remember the name right now. i can't believe. I'll have to look it up. I'll post at d. d. and it's awesome. It's like really authentic really great and it was packed. Last night. I went last night to pick up dinner and i do weight and extra forty five minutes to get my dinner and it was to go do irish jews in common like well. I think it's just because it's a deli. They just do super good corned. Beef was one of those things. So it's a really but it's a really popular. So i think that the delhi site that the jewish shelley more like east coast so they're really really good. It's just i mean. does that sound bad. I don't. I don't know i so. So it's a really like it's it's it's like an authentic east coast deli. That's yeah i don't know what's funny as delays even growing up with a jewish family. I don't go to delhi. So i really don't know like a bad east coast deli from sally so it's i think it's a lot different. It's a lot. There are a lot better and so they have much better light quality of meats. And everything like that. So it's just the one in del mar really popular same thing. East coast are west coast elliott. That's like an east coast one and that is also a very well known really good jewish delis so that the east coast jewish. He's known as being really good. Yeah and so so. That's why it's not like it's not like It's not like a religious thing or anything but it's it's always funny that i hear so milton's and are the two big ones here and i'm sure milton's was super pac too but So it's really good and and it was packed. It was packed packed. Like i've never seen it. That packed and crazy and spent there. Because i was there to get dinner together because i wanted corn beef. Because i'm an irish guy and it was the whole outside was completely packed and there was like a line like out the door around the building practically to get in and that was to order it and you had to wait an hour to order it. So it's so. I mean clearly like the red tier like people were getting out. Yeah i feel like people having getting out if you like. The more and more people are that are getting vaccinated especially has kind of elderly generation. It's getting vaccinated. You're gonna see a resurgence and that's a really good point. Because last night it was a lot of older people. Like a lot of people that you wouldn't think would be going out. We're definitely out who fully vaccinated talking to. They're like oh it feels so good to be vaccinated and you know. Yeah we're we're we're ready to get out again and people were talking like in line that this was the first time they've been out in a long time so i think it's good the combination of the vaccine's rolling out at the same time that obviously that's having an effect on the numbers here they're saying that our numbers are really good So the the numbers are. I think we've now gone to six cases per hundred thousand. I don't remember exactly what we're we're so it is saying in here and this by the way was out of the. Ut okay so union tribune and they are saying nine of the other county so it looks like nine. Other counties moved into red to in those were monterey riverside sacramento santa barbara center to hema to lori and ventura And then that just leaves eleven of the california's fifty eight counties in the most restrictive purple tier still the the cases. They're saying have gone to six point. Eight per one hundred thousand residence so they took last week's case rate which was eight point. Eight where at six point eight. And i think they took like a combined total and that got us just over the mark to go to read. So that's good so we keep having our case count drop to which is which is good and i think a lot of that has to do with vaccines right. We're just not spreading fast and it's starting to slow down so hopefully this'll be. The weird thing is in europe. They're kinda getting so talked to one of our clients say who lives in france and She was saying that you know like where she is. She's around knees and it's become more restrictive there so they become more lockdown.
Accelerate Revenue Growth with VIP Guest Darrell Amy
"So let's talk about. Because i said this out about you. Being that super expert at help businesses grow. So i wanted to warn dokie different angles. I wanted to ask what gets you excited. Have businesses grow. Yeah and get excited. When you walk into a business you can usually tell what kind of business you're walking into either your walking into business where there's growth which means people are excited. They're energetic you can just feel it inside a business whereas if you go inside businesses not growing you can feel that vibe as well and i get excited about going into businesses. That are growing. Because i know that what's going on. There is two things first of all they're creating meaningful jobs and right now you know especially right. Now we need to create more meaningful work in company grows able to create meaningful jobs. And the thing. I'm most passionate about is nonprofits. I serve on the board of of two different nonprofits and i've noticed people that moved the needle. The most our businesses business leaders that are generous. And so i know when. I'm going into a growing business that the fruit of that business is not just meaningful jobs. It's also the giving that happens back into the community and in all of that adds up to make the world a better place so when it comes to growing revenue i get really excited about helping companies grow because the impact. Those organizations are able to have on the world and write ray girl what you shared. Is your excitement conferencing the impact. And i think that was great wisdom immediately at the beginning itself. Show it's not the revenue generated for the brands. You work with would how the trickles to other nonprofits and other areas in brexit community and the dubs. I really think to do it is it is and you know if you look at at where we are right now. Who's going to move. You know in so many ways. We're facing unprecedented challenges in our world and our countries who is going to solve their problems. What's going to solve those problems. It's businesses driving forward in helping nonprofits come along Behind them and all of that we're going to create a better world back. Gets me excited. Nunca a bitter and now before we go to the beker. The i want to come to nonprofits few cents. I wanted to go to the revenue growth. The core promise of your book. I just want to understand. What the real uniqueness what you've done to help. Businesses accelerate the revenue growth in this key areas that you held businesses focused to achieve this. So what things that you can share. The secrets for garros accelerated revenue growth. Well yeah thank you for asking either way and and i you know there are. There are several secrets. I wanna start with two today. That are are really really critical. When it comes to growing your company the first has to do with goal setting and when it comes to setting revenue growth goals were in a challenging time right now because a lot of conservative companies i found set goals based on what they've done historically may say well we've experienced this percentage of growth over the last three years so our goal next year is going to be that same number again ten percent whatever that number is however. That's real challenge. Right now is for businesses. Some businesses obviously have seen a sharp decline. So don't have a trend to work on their. That's very useful. Other businesses are exploding. They've had you know whole new areas of opportunity open in front of them in and so in either case. How do you set growth goals. What i found is the most powerful way to set realistic growth goals. I call them aggressive but realistic goals is to look to drivers of revenue growth. And if you oil it all down. I believe there are really only two ways to grow a company fundamentally you either get more net new clients or and or you grow your revenue per client and when both of those things happen at the same time arjun exciting things begin to unfold If you can accelerate your you can accelerate your growth if you can show reasonable growth in number of clients and simultaneously show reasonable growth in your revenue per client. When you add those two things up You see some really exciting results. I call it the law of exponential revenue growth for example a company that grows their number of clients by twelve percent. Simultaneously grows their revenue per client by twelve percent. They're actually able to double their revenue in just about thirty six months. Which now. I've got some things. I can really set some goals around. Not just setting the overall revenue goal setting the goal in terms of number of clients revenue per client. That's the first thing i would say is think about your revenue. Not just in terms that bottom line numb our top line number but in terms of what are the two factors that drive it. And how can we get more clients in selma current clients. And this is you make it so simple to me. Back to my beginning of my career in the b. to seaworld i remember What listen i losses. Amazing human being. She started as an admin and then she grasped the business and she learned. Explain to me the way you are explaining restaurants fix restaurants to convey simple vase. He said your sales depends on. How many guys you open the cash register how much you put in every time. Not that smart arjun. You could make thousand dollars. Yes one time putting thousand in a thousand times putting one in or something in between and based on that your strategy can be there. So i really love the simplicity as you start going through so as you have come here i just have to ask this question as a friend to understand how daryl get here like was. He warned that smart or not. Get in this journey. Get here well. the. I don't know that was a a that that smarter that i was certainly born this smart but but i did I think like a lot of us Most of what i've learned was has been in the university of hard knocks along the way. And i spent I've had a unique perspectives in that. I've spent half my career in sales in half of my career in marketing For the first twelve years of my career. I was in b. two b. technology sales sales management And then ended up ultimately starting a sales training company in the space. When i started that sales training company the fun part of my story was my very first came to me and said hey darryl everything you taught. Her team is fantastic. However our website doesn't say anything about it do you build websites and of course being my first client. The answer was yes sir. We build websites at actually built several for nonprofits. But it put me now and this was seventeen years ago when this happened over the seventeen years of had the unique perspective of having one foot in the sales world doing sales training consulting with companies about sales even helping some fortune five hundred companies build sales. Training programs have been very involved in that mad at the same time. I've also been on. This journey in the digital marketing space. So that first website turned into managing digital marketing for companies across north america and australia search engine optimization social media management inbound marketing now account based marketing. And so all of it. You know what i noticed was number one. There wasn't a lot of alignment in companies between sales and marketing. In fact i think that's an understatement. He knows it's kind of like your car. When you're driving your car in its non-aligned one wheels pulling the left. The other wheels pulling to the right and the poor driver is just trying to get to work. down the freeway Not only is. They're not allowed of alignment really. There wasn't even a common language between the two sales You know has their focus Marketing has their focus and there are a lot of finger pointing back and forth and where the lights came on for me. Arjun was when i had realization. That was actually getting ready to speak at a conference And had a realization. As i looked out over that that room of marketing professionals sales leaders in business owners realize this isn't about sales. It isn't about marketing. Those are just means to an end. What's the end. The end is revenue growth. And so when we started. When i started looking at things that way everything on this journey that i'd been on in in the sales world in the marketing world started to come into focus and out of that is where the revenue growth engine model emerged.
Documentarian Cristina Costantini
"Your, First Film Science Fair at Sundance Wins Big award. The audience loves it. What did you learn from that first foray into directing? It's a lot more fun than investigative journalism I would say No, but I think I learned kind of the power of a hopeful story. I think hope and love. Are you know in short supply right now? And these kinds of stories can really change the way people think of the world and think of themselves, and so Walter came out of that in a way. I was looking for another story. That was also from my childhood. You know I started thinking what other worlds do I know really well. Not Everybody knows what other worlds made me feel warm and fuzzy as a kid and I think Walter Metadata was part of that. World for me, I grew up watching him every day as a kid with my grandmother and you know, he reminds me of my grandmother in many ways. He's the same age as my grandma there they have the same Hairdo, and so I started to wonder whatever happened to him, and you know in many ways he was he is. He was one hundred years ahead of his time. The first person I've ever seen that was gender queer. What we'd call now. It's just inspirational looking back. It's like. Could you were doing that at that time? You know nineteen forty in Puerto, Rico. You were being Walter McCullough. It's it's. Really. Inspirational so that's when I set out to find him. You set out to find out. What does that mean? So I started asking around univision and fusion and. Nano actually told me not Avila told me that there's a producer new. Who's also obsessed with Walter? Who you should talk to about this? Maybe he knows something so I called Alex, and he's like this is the weirdest thing I have. Another director who I'm supposed to talk to in ten minutes about doing a documentary about Alternate Telo, and I was like who is this person and his name is creamy taps, and he directed a film called. Dolphin, lover, which was a big fan of it's about a man who falls in love with Dolphin in the Florida like seaworld. And I had loved that film and I was like Oh amazing. I can't I mean I would love to talk to him. And we decided basically a ten minutes later on a phone call that we would all do the project together and yeah. It's been incredible experience Kareem track down. The niece of Walter through an estate sale, and then set up a phone call with Walter and it was. Yeah it was after the suit was. It was really insane to talk to. Walter Mark on the phone for the first time, and he said yes. Well that unprecedented access is notable because he is an has always been intensely private. So, how did you three persuade him to allow you to make the film? We rehearsed for that first conversation for hours and hours. What are the possible questions you could ask us? How would we answer it? You know what is what? What's the best angle on all of his questions? And we got on the phone, and he said Okay I. Have One question for you and we were like Mrs it. It's GonNa be really hard, and he's like. What are your astrological signs and so he went around. And like I'm a libra careens libra and Alex's deteriorates, and he said okay. That's great sounds good. I would love to do this film with you, so he was. He was in like in in from day one. He was psyched, but his idea of a documentary realized very quickly was very different from our idea he wanted. He was in front of a lens for fifty years. He was the most cameras trained person you can imagine. It's truly insane, and he has fifty years of rehearsed answers. He knows what he's going to say. To every question, you could ask him, and so it was really a process of spending a lot of time with him. At first, he thought this was going to. Just you know he was going. Going to be in full makeup and just telling the stories he always tells and I think it took a lot of time to explain to him that this might be different that this is you know we wanna see who you actually are without your makeup. What you do in your normal life and talking about bad stuff, particularly offensive to him. He did not want to talk about anything bad. You and that is the story of his life. You know he a lot goes wrong. He loses everything and even to get him to talk about. That was very difficult, so that was a big stumbling block for us in the first. Twenty interviews that we did with them so We've probably chat with him for like thirty five or forty days, and whenever we the cameras on kind of turned into an interview I remember. We told him once that we just wanted to. What he? What would he be doing if we weren't here? And he said reading a book, so he opened a book, and he started reading it, but he it was like onstage. He's A. He's a strained theater. Actor says like stage reading, or he was like having a conversation with a bunch was reading with his is.

Orca, David And Atlantic discussed on Markley and Van Camp
"And I did see this the other day, and you're really fascinated by David, oh is this piece about great white sharks? And who they fear in the ocean more than anything. This was in the Atlantic. It was talking about orcas killer whales scare the hell out of great white sharks for some reason. And they go into detail on this. And I think this is fascinating. Well, they could kill him. Right. Yes. The ways that they can kill great white sharks. Okay. Is chilling because a lot on this show. These researchers realized they found that for whatever reason a bunch of sharks that they had tagged. Just get the hell out of this particular segment of the ocean whenever orca show, and so they do the deep dive as it says combining both brains and brawn orcas have been known to kill sharks, surprisingly complicated ways. Some will drive their prey to the surface and then karate. Chop them. With overhead tail swipes hardly do that. They will converge together because they're pack hunters converge together drive the shark up. And then one of them will just flip the tail over and. Wow. Wow. Man. Some also video in one case, they do have some video. Yes, that's pretty cool because water so hot. And so the green new deal and. Others seem to have worked out that they can hold sharks upside down to induce paralytic state called tonic immobility, oh my God. And then again, the karate chop happens. They kill the shark. This is the last the last piece here that I it's like chilling. The orcas will go for the liver because it's one of the dentists sources of calories in the ocean rather than ripping their prey apart. The orcas can extract livers with surprising finesse. No one has ever observed their technique, but the wounds on otherwise intact carcasses of sharks suggests that they bite their victims near the pictorial Fens. So they eat they bite holes in the body all around the liver, and then they hit that portion of the liver and it squeezes it out of their bodies. Gosh, fake compare it to squeezing toothpaste out of a two. Oh my gosh. Wow. And then they'll leave the shark for dead after eating the liver. Okay. Now. I know, you know, there's kids that were offended by Blackfish. Yeah. Okay. The whole documentary on the way SeaWorld was treating the orcas. Yeah. If you can have one that does all the shampoo tricks. And then you bring a great white, and we all get to watch the orca wasted. Oh my gosh. Fan who don't wanna pay to see some of that.

They're not the white wells that took his leg in Moby, Dick. But they've got the beluga whales the white whales. The beluga whales are new to SeaWorld. Have you ever seen the beluga whales? I have not other so cute. You've got you've got a Google beluga whales. They've they've got to new beluga whales. They arrived on Saturday to the wild Arctic exhibit. They're both eleven years old one is named Grayson the other is named Oliver. Please. Have some? So I'm getting all my great literature mixed up here, and and once from an aquarium in Chicago, the other one actually comes from SeaWorld San Antonio. There are fewer than thirty belugas currently in accredited facilities. And and this is one of the ways that researchers can study beluga whales in captivity. They can study them. So when they have real issues with real beluga whales out in the real wild. We will have a basis of knowledge on these beluga whales so Kudo kudos to the to the animal experts at SeaWorld and I'm excited about going on. And these beluga whales are so cute. These are the ones you often see in like in YouTube videos of of kids like playing with beluga whales. And then the beluga whales are smiling or their photo bombing, weddings and stuff like that.

"So most of the ones that are in SeaWorld now have been born in captivity. So I can't remember if they're still allowed to capture them off, Norway and other countries. I think not, but I am not a hundred percent sure. But that stopped a long time ago. But isn't that a huge issue if they're being born in captivity because then even if they get out into the wild. They're not used to they can never get out in the wild. They can never get out as they won't be allowed to get out. Or once they get out. They can't they don't survive. Right. Okay. And Kiko didn't survive either. He lasted I think it was about a year and a half and he didn't do. Well coming. Coming up to people. And and they had researchers that we're trying to train him to feed in the wild. And essentially they were basically feeding him off the boat. And then he he died of an infection. But it's very difficult to release an animal that has been in captivity for a long time, especially if they're born in captivity. Yeah, I looked up the aftermath of Kiko because you know, it brought the living conditions of of Kiko to the world's attention after the movie, and he was living in this small tank with two warm. Chlorinated artificial salt water. I don't know if that's how bad that is really bad, really bad. Yeah. Okay. I mean think about where they well. They live all over the world. But it's it's really bad. Okay. So well, yeah, they and small really small tank right because these animals normally travel about one hundred and thirty miles a day. So you're talking about a concrete walled in tiny little thing. It would be like, you know, you being stuck in a room smaller than this for my dorsal. Fin would go over. Exactly. Yeah. Big time. Yeah. It's very bad. So but your dose with ends up today. So to speak. Wait a minute. I'm not trying to say sixty four years old. Have you know, I could never tell. Yeah. Yeah. So he there was like a monumental effort to try and save Kiko, right? And so they'd worked and they like made this big custom tank and then of. Yeah, you're right eventually released him into the wild. But then the next year he died, right? Yeah. It's very difficult to to release a while an animal that's been in captivity back into the wild. They don't know how to feed they have to train him out of feed. It's very expensive even train them to do that. And then in the case of killer whales, they are you still living with their moms. So there it's called a metro line, and they live with their mom for their whole life. So you can't just release a whale back into the ocean and expect it to first of all it will never find it's family, but second of all it's not going to go to a family that it doesn't know. So now, it's isolated and they hunt in packs. So for killer whales this it's a disaster. Yeah. Other wells that don't live like that. Don't live in packs like that don't live in in in metro lines or pods. They are more likely to survive, but not not killer whales. And so because you say they live with their mothers. And from what I gather they can sometimes also live with their grandmothers. Great grandmothers. Yep. It's usually four to five and it's a couple of generations. So I ask what's healthy natural life span to an orca. Yes. So it differs for males and females females have been known to live up to ninety years. Probably fifty or sixty is more likely and for males. It's probably around forty years old why so much less because they're they're always less for males because they fight. They have to fight for mating and things like that. So there's more energy, that's expended, and just more aggression. Don't you for the less? I fight in real life. The better off you are. Yeah. Okay. That's good. To know. I'm not a fighter. I should be. Okay. Excellent. And they also can. Live with like there can be a ton of them..

"Especially if you see this Blackfish, it is brutal. You know? And I will just tell you. There's a scene where mother gets separated from her calf. And I'm like, wow. Yeah. That that's going to tug at my arts turning. It's brutal. It's just it's brutal. So if you take the whales out of the equation and to your point Jason, they don't have pricing power. What what is SeaWorld? So I like to think about these types of things split into two there's experiences, and there's activities Disney is undoubtedly inexperienced. Yeah. People who say make one of the things I wanna do before. I die is go to DisneyWorld right kids. I want to go to Disney. It's an experience see wrote a used to be an experienced it used to be an experience because of the orca shows that was itself an experience that was kind of quintessential when you were growing up as a kid, you know, getting splashed by the orca tale. I think with Blackfish and phasing out or program, you're looking at something that is now an activity that doesn't necessarily mean, it's bad. But I agree that it doesn't have the pricing power that an experience has so theme parks their activities of fairs their activities. See road now is an activity. So I don't think we're ever going to go back to the glory days of C wrote being that quintessential once in a lifetime experience that you'd get when you look at a company like Disney or park like Disney. So for me, it's it's lost a lot of its power because of that, of course ethically. That's a good thing for for people. Right. You don't after seeing Blackfish. I'm sure people are like I'm never going back to see road because of that. So I don't think they should go back to to orca shows. But without the orca shows, they're really lacking. Something. Okay. So what about the stock going forward? I again, I think it's the stock has made a tremendous comeback from the lows where it was. But I mean investing is we know is all about the future. And when you look at a business like this that I questioned is pricing power in. It's going to cost a lot of money to maintain these assets of which just means the balance, she becomes more and more of a liability as time goes on in the face of questionable revenue growth. It's just not the kind of business. I'd personally one investment. What if I told you to Emily's point and trying to kind of reinject that experience element? What if I told you work with me for a minute SeaWorld? You add that that show where the monkey writes, the dog have you ever seen that the monkey rides around the dog and the monkey whereas I can cowboy hat and bandanna EMC. Do they have the brand permission to do that? And I want to make sure the monkeys are treated ethically not separated from their my meaning in this age of technology. Perhaps the answer really is just something more along the virtual or augmented reality side instead of of actual orcas. Perhaps they just have a hologram of an orca that sort of splashes on you. But doesn't really right. I mean, you use it in those theatres that that what is it universal in virtual killer. When maybe maybe that's the answer. But but then that really. I want. I you leave one more. How about if we how about if we pair virtual killer whales with very real monkeys writing? I just the monkeys thing is where you're kind of losing me on the monkeys. I don't really not just just I don't trust him. Now. That's true. That's true. You'd have to fit the parks. And then if they got out, there's liability. I haven't thought through this. I wasn't Joe maker back. Like, I haven't really thought through this. Doug, Joe mayhem like didn't monkey steal something from him like on his. Not happy at that. Joe reach out to tell us that story again it began Joe if you're not crafty, I was in Gibraltar traveling and they warn you like if you have ice cream if you have any food items, the monkeys will come and they will they will take so cagey there cagey.

"Thirty eight dollars. A year ago SeaWorld stock trading around ten dollars today sheriffs back up to twenty five dollars so SeaWorld appears to be coming back and overcoming some of that. Yeah. I would I would say you to be probably cautiously optimistic here. I mean, it has been a tremendous turnaround now with that said you look at SeaWorld, and I feel like when you look at that park space. I mean, we talk about Home Depot and Lowe's and kind of going with the obvious one there. I mean look at Sea World, and you have to compare it to probably Disney, and I mean, why aren't you just going with busy in that case in chances? Oh, probably most people are I don't think my my problem was Sea World is while it's unique. And I think they've managed their way around that Blackfish crisis you off. I mean, I think that documentary was so jarring that I I had I'd only gonna see where all once or twice. I'll never go to SeaWorld after a hat because I I don't blame you for that. And I mean, I I haven't been to SeaWorld. I think I've been once in my life in. We were down there with or girls in Florida. It never even came up on radar. I mean that was just not something they wanted to go to but clearly people are going to see world and and their own properties. I mean, it's not just the oral day on Busch gardens and other parks around the country. But with that said, I don't think that they possessed the the ability to raise prices on those tickets like something like Disney and remember when we talked about Disney back in the time of the great recession, and even Disney had to resort to cutting ticket prices a little bit to get traffic in the door because that's really the most important part of it. All yeah. Getting people in the door SeaWorld. I just don't think they possess these same ability to raise ticket prices when when economic conditions allow for in Disney's been taking advantage of that every year SeaWorld. They don't have that same ability. And that's got to be concerning, particularly when you look at their balance sheet, which has a pretty healthy slugger dead on and. In a coverage ratio really of just about to you won't that number to be a lot higher up in. So there are a lot of lot of hurdles for them still to clear, and I should add that they are. They have said that they're phasing out the killer whales in captivity. But that brings up another point because that's in part when they were known for Emily. So they don't have pricing power. And if the killer whales are going away, which I think a lot of us think that's a good thing..

"Insane. Lows has more stores that you share that with me before the show? And that was that that really caught me by surprise it caught me by surprise to. But I think we think about the person who's going to the lows, I think. Homedepot tends to go more towards semi professionals. Contractors home, lows goes towards the U or the is right. The local people you just need to go somewhere and pick up something that you're not going to be able to order on Amazon you're saying about semi professional not yet not yet. But you could be if you applied yourself, I do think that that was the reason why they had a lot of stores. Right. They had to make it convenient. So pulling back these underperforming stores making it closer to the number that we're seeing from Home Depot. I don't think this company is going to be, you know, the macro trends e ER too strong for the company to underperform. But I do think it's really interesting when you look at their new CEO who came on earlier this year, Marvin Ellison came on from JC Penney. Where he started to see you and did some very similar things when he was CEO of J C Penney closing down stores cutting some skews right making the inventory a little bit less. So it's interesting to see him taking same stances here at Lowe's. Does I don't necessarily think that like I said that's going to go the same way as JC Penney. But it is interesting to see the same strategy that didn't pan out for him at JC. Penney being applied here at Lowe's. If you love what I did a Jason Jason, what do you think? I I've always found lows in Home Depot to be kind of like the the store space like the CVS. And Walgreens to the extent that they always seem to be sort of right near each other. And you just go to whichever one is more convenient. But with that said, I do find myself going to Home Depot much more often than than I go to lows in a lot of that is because the services better they have more stuff in just always know, I can get one I'm looking for their. So for me. I mean, there's no reason is it's no secret Wyoming who has been so successful for so long. I think that lows probably can continue to do just fine because as we've talked about before they've latched onto this terrific market opportunity that appears to be pretty Amazon resistant, and as they continue to grow out that internet business. I mean, even even just incremental improvements can can alternately result in the gold for shareholders. So as we wrap up here. Let's talk about a few of the numbers home depot's market cap of round two hundred and ten billion lows around eighty billion Home Depot, we mentioned this earlier, but the revenue around fifty percent larger than lows revenues in Home Depot. Much more profitable. When you look at the two stocks. They have both beaten the market over the last. Ten years homedepot, especially has crushed the market. How about going forward? What do you think about the two stocks? Do you have a favorite? So I think that Home Depot definitely has premium apply to you right now. So they had about one hundred billion in sales lows has about seventy billion and sales. So the change in market cap there on on sales basis as pretty extreme. But I think that it's the better company when you look at how it's performed when you look the management, and when you look at some of the incentives that they put in place for customers to be returned customers..

That's chump change. Also, he's he's an have to pay more than that. I mean, but still I mean that would be basically chump change, but it would just be such. It's such a Berkshire Hathaway style business to my mind in we were talking about this Molly for money this week to write about how the Kraft Heinz numbers aren't looking all that encouraging. We know that Berkshire Hathaway has connection there in to me. It was just like, you know, then McCormick mccormick's been going the other way. Big.

I have have wanted. I don't think it's going to happen. But I have of course have wanted. Berkshire to buy Costco, Charlie Munger. The vice chairman is is on the Costco board. But buck Hartselle one of our colleagues, and I were talking before handed. He kind of food the idea said buffet, not not huge on retail. So maybe that's just a pipe dream. But is that even retail now, I mean, I, you know, work with her because that is one of those great membership businesses out there that we have membership models, and really it's three Innis and the show. I mentioned Costco, mentions of Costco, or tell about for the first three minutes. No, I agree. I don't think I don't think it's just retail. It's more of an experience. It will. It is.

So you you do get a lot out of that membership in the end, it's a big company one hundred billion dollar company now that would be a big acquisition. They can do it. But that would be a big a big one. I like the McCormick thing though. I think I would go McCormick. And I bet I bet he would go McCormack before before cost. Don't get me wrong. I'm happy to just let my McCormick shares just sit there and keep on appreciating in value over time. I mean, I'm just saying if I was there in the Berkshire boardroom, I probably would have lobbed that at all. Twice with with maybe television as well. Okay. Well, let's move on.

So Emily still a big company, but what's the story here? Still a big company still the number two player, and the D Y, I kind of home improvement space. So I don't think we're seeing a Sears here. I don't think we're seeing all store liquidation. But it is always interesting in concerning to investors when you see store closers, I think what's happening is that they're finding they're just over saturated. And the space said they have more stores in their largest competitor. And the number one player in the space, Home Depot, and they're doing less.

"And joining me in studio, we have motley fool analysts, Emily flippin and Jason Moser. How are we doing this Monday doing wonderful good? That's all I can ask for we've got lots to talk about. And we're going to kick things off with the world of Warren buffet and Berkshire Hathaway third quarter operating profits. Doubling Jason strong numbers across the board here with their insurers their railroads, they're manufacturing companies and buffet buying back twelve point six billion in stock. What does it all mean? Well, I think it means that he really likes his company so much that he wants to buy that more and more stock. But I mean, it makes it a lot of sense really because we cool Kuro talk about the merits of brochure hat with business model in the e you keyed in their across the board. And you started talking about railroads and energy and insurance. I mean, they make their money in number of different ways. And. I think personally it was really interesting to see earlier in the year, they essentially lifted that benchmark that they had set for share repurchases. I mean, they think were were setting this internal benchmark of one point two times book value as this arbitrary target. That's where they felt like perhaps it represented a good return. And now, they basically are just saying anytime they feel like it really is sensible to do. So they're going to do it. And I think they have we we can trust their judgment. I if the the earned our trust here. And so it it makes a lot of sense to see them continue buying back that stock. I I wonder sometimes if they're ever going to pay a dividend. I do feel like there are a lot of shareholders out there that would like that the cash in the pocket, but repurchases do have a material affect in. The stock has done pretty well over the course of time. So. I always felt differently about share buybacks. It's always made me wonder, what is a company doing with that capital of the only thing they can think of is buying back their own shares. But, but I will say and Warren Buffett's case, I think there's something to be said about diluting, the value of the brand if you're taking what was it nine hundred million almost a billion dollars with share buybacks and just throwing it at any investment. Right. I mean at some point people are going to take that name, you know, backed by you know, Berkshire Hathaway as kind of less than less than what it's worth today. So well, it's not my favorite thing to see. I will admit that it does increase shareholder return, and it's not a bad thing. So it doesn't really change the the needle for me. But to Emily's point Jason a lot of companies when they buy back shares. They're not getting that. Right, right. It's not always a bullish on. I mean, we definitely have data that shows that in fact, most of them get it wrong and win those share prices are. Hi, and they are buying that stock MAC, but when the you-know-what hits the fan and everything starts coming down. They tighten those purse-strings very quickly. And in really if you know your business. Well, then that's the absolute time you need to be accelerating those by back, so so we do see that that data that shows most companies do get it wrong. And again, I think that makes a great point there. You have to wonder is that money not better serve elsewhere. And I mean, I think the the old argument of the dividend is is a good one. Because a lot of people love to get that cash in the pocket right in cash in the pocket is is real repurchases. Typically, do help the share price over time. But they are somewhat subjective. I mean, there is no rule that says the stock market then must bid that stock up accordingly. So that it reflects the share repurchases, so it's it's always something to consider..
