We saw the super bowl commercial featured a mountain that all of these well-known cbs characters on spongebob to picard to football players were climbing That's there it's mostly a rebrand. I think at launch. It's going to be mostly the same. Content is cbs access with a couple of new things. There isn't event coming up a week from today. actually a basically it is viacom. Cvs is but they're also taking that as an opportunity to run through some of the content in some additional details on paramount. Plus now we were.

Are you expecting something similar from this event. Or what what what. what are you expecting. What are you hoping for at least get out of this from this event. So i'm hoping for some new exciting content. You know i. My hope is a little bit damp and by that super bowl commercial. You'd think if they were gonna launch a big splashy new show you know talk about some new stars they have. They would be enact commercial for the super bowl if anywhere but we'll see i. They've already said that. The why the launch is gotta be. Spongebob movie sponge on the run. But that's not an original. They've talked about few original properties They're saying coming soon. One called the lioness which is a better creator of yellowstone the hit series on paramount network which is also going to be on paramount plus yellowstone. That is so there's a few things but maybe they'll surprise us to be great to see you know a couple new. At least one new star trek series for example to kind of you know cater to fans who are looking for something new. And that franchise.

A Big Publishing Plot Twist: Penguin Random House to Buy Simon & Schuster for $2.2 Billion
"Biggest news to hit the publishing industry this year. Possibly several years happened last wednesday. And we're betting that you missed it after all. You were probably contemplating cooking a turkey for two and planning zoom thanksgiving dinners with relatives right so just in case here. It is again the parent company of penguin random house's buying simon and schuster for two billion dollars penguin random house or pr h has already america's largest book publisher according to the new york times. Should the acquisition go through and there are some caveats which will get to pr. H will be. The industry's first mega publisher. The times claims. Let's delve into this just a little bit as we've talked about here before simon and shuster is among the oldest of today's big five publishing houses and one of the most distinguished dick simon and schuster founded the company in nineteen twenty four. The partners first product was hardly a literary masterpiece. It was a book of crossword puzzles. And according to simon and schuster's corporate historian it was a runaway bestseller today. Almost one hundred years. After the lowly crossword puzzle got the entrepreneurial venture off the ground simon and schuster or s operates in a different stratosphere. Today it is america's third largest publisher over the years it's published scads of famous even legendary authors including ernest hemingway and f scott fitzgerald also political figures from both sides of the aisle including jimmy carter hillary clinton and donald trump and contemporary authors. Like bob woodward stephen king and anti prue as well as judy blume s prints and authors have won fifty seven pulitzer prizes and innumerable other literary awards including several caldecott medals one of the highest honors given to children's books the company now sells about two thousand titles annually all told s and s takes in close to nine hundred million dollars a year but early this year. Parent company viacom. Cbs decided to go all in on streaming video in sports looking to cut close to a billion dollars in operating expenses ceo. Bob bakish announced that s wasn't what he called a core asset hence the sale in march the rumored price for us and s was one point two billion dollars a bidding. Were hike the final price to two point. Two billion dollars among other contenders america's second largest publisher harpercollins also vivendi. A french company. That owns a stake in. American publisher has yet and rupert murdoch's news corp clearly penguin random house's parent german media giant bertelsmann was willing to pay top dollar for s and s one reason in addition to the competition between publishers for blockbuster bestsellers the big five face. A formidable rival in certain amazon and when it comes to fighting off amazon size matters since two thousand nine amazon has been a publisher. Not just the world's largest both retailer today. It has sixteen imprints that publish everything from thrillers. To romance novels it signs. Top selling authors like dean koontz patricia. Cornwell taking them and their millions of sales away from traditional publishers in two thousand seventeen amazon published more than twelve hundred titles according to the wall street journal if those numbers have grown in the last three years amazon could well already rival simon and schuster for the volume of new works. It's producing what makes amazon such a tough competitor is a book publisher of course is it status as a bookseller. Moreover it has a number of marketing weapons that traditional publishers. Do not such as the ability to easily promote low priced e books to millions of amazon prime members and kindle owners. The wall street journal reports that along with oodles of cash to lure away big name authors as the largest american publisher penguin. Random house has the clout and logistical network to compete successfully with amazon. The merged company would have annual revenues of three billion dollars according to book industry bible publishers. Weekly but we should note here. The acquisition faces obstacles worthy of an epic novel authors and agents represented by the authors guild. Say such a deal will make it even harder for new authors and so called mid list writers to get published meaning. If you haven't written a blockbuster or a solid backlist title your chances to get published and your earnings could shrink. Pr h says. Simon and schuster will remain editorially independent and both publishing houses say they remain devoted to readers and writers still publishers weekly reports that by blending s. npr h german-owned. Bertelsmann would own about one third of the us book market. That's the number that could trigger antitrust. Investigators to closely scrutinize the deal. According to the new york times but those market share numbers are in dispute in both directions. The authors guild which causes tie up says a combined. Pr h. s. would wind up publishing half of all trade books in the us. Meaning not textbooks penguin. Random house's leadership argues not true and says future market share would be less than twenty percent and that an antitrust investigation is unlikely what happens next will likely hinge on which of these numbers comes closest to reality

"Learn more at marks paneth dot com slash tax as John mentioned equity markets up across the board about one percent. Let's find out where the action is with Bloomberg stocks editor, Dave Wilson. Dave that's all over the place. Paul that's clear from what John Tucker was saying with all eleven of the main industry groups in the S and P five hundred higher couple that jumped out though, energy stocks giving it you're seeing crude oil above sixty dollars a barrel in New York trading for the first time since early November number of the energy producers among the top performers in the S and P five hundred and then you know, you've got Viacom and CBS among the best performers as well. In New York Post reporting that perhaps the. On again off again, talks about a deal between these two companies in essence putting Humpty Dumpty back together again because they were separated X number of years ago. Now that you've got this AT and T direct TV contract for Viacom which lifted the stock yesterday. Now, the other post is reporting on the possibility that things may happen on a deal front again. So Viacom best performer on the day. We've heard this before how? Oh, yeah. More than I have I suppose, but you know, Viacom up four point three percent CBS up two and a half percents. He can't sneeze the gains. I mean, there's not much that's down. Frankly. Only about forty stocks one that jumps out though is Carnival Cruise line owner by far the biggest decline in the one hundred right now down seven point four percent. It's all about their forecasts for the current quarter fuel prices going against some they're looking at earnings of no more than sixty cents a share when Alice ran seventy two cents on average based on Bloomberg survey. So you get that kind of disappointment. And certainly you have a reaction to go with it. Yeah. Although on the other side bed bath and beyond the winners soared twenty nine percent. There's an activist push going on there. I do think that the broad based rally today. Dave raises a question, right. Which is let's say you do believe the yield curve. Let's say you do believe that there is some kind of foreboding sign of a downturn in the not so distant future. Does that mean to sell stocks? Now does that mean to sell risk assets? Or does the riskier securities have more room to run? I mean, basically, okay. Let's say that the inversion does foretell a recession the next twelve to eighteen months. They're still a good nine months. You can get some gains. I mean, how much is that behind any rally that we see Dave? Really, the key thing is now when when your comments Lee sitting strategist saying that there's room for stocks to move higher, even as the threat of a recession or certainly an earnings recession two quarters of declines in S and P five hundred earnings is out there. I mean what you're seeing arguably is just a bit more volatility. You know, you look at the last four trading days including today, and you you have the potential for three one percent moves and the ad, you know, end up much of anywhere. So it just becomes a question of whether things are kind of thinning out toward the end of a quarter, which let's face. It has been good for a whole lot of investors S and P five hundred up almost thirteen percent. So you're talking about the best quarter in years, and it just may be the people want to kind of take a step back, at least in some cases, and you know, count their gains and wait for the next season to see how bad things might get then. Yeah, it's interesting. Dave just looking at the Vicks at down here at fifteen point one five down seven point two percent today. Just grindingly low, you know, very little volatility as you mentioned in the kind of raises the question for investors. What is the next data point? Do. We just sit around for a few weeks until earnings kick in again that we just kind of see markets in the most. Recent term over the last several weeks just kind of bouncing around. Yeah. Definitely bouncing in terms of the past week or so no question and keep in mind. I mean with the Vicks at fifteenth still relatively high even by recent standards. You look at much of the second half of last year, and you had the vix down as low as eleven so you don't have to go back far. We're really just a twenty seventeen to see that that volatility gauge even lower than that around ten so. Yeah, I mean, there is a bit more of an anticipation that you'll get swings and stocks here that's playing out the moment. Now, whether it lasts them look at the earnings look at a whole lot of other things and get a sense of where we go from here on a broader level. I think a lot of strategists and investors are wondering what assets are set to underperform in this period of time before we get it down turning UBS just put out yesterday where they said leveraged loans will probably be pinpointed for weakness. They talk. About the loosening covenants they talked about the incredible increase in sales. And it is interesting. So overnight that there were steady outflows from almost all of the leveraged loan ETF's Bloomberg tracks. So that does seem like there is some reticence to go into this debt. And of course, to me, this is sort of interesting because there's the floating rate future these bonds typically do better when rates are rising because they'll pay more that also isn't even fair. So he just sort of interesting. The calculus of what will to least badly in a time where we're sort of you know, before the storm. Yeah. I think if you think about the Connie perhaps rolling over the, you know, the news coming out of the fed. We had the verdict yield Kirk. You have still have continued weakness coming out of Europe, China's slowing and they leveraged loan business. It just from as you well know, Lisa from a credit perspective. One of the first places you're going to see cracks in the capital structure is those companies that really have pushed their leverage to the limit and paying some of the higher rates and the loan market private equity firms have relied disproportionately on the loan market for funding buyouts and some of these other leveraged transactions so to that point. Yup. Absolutely. So it's again, it's to the extent economy is slowing. It is not that surprising that one of the first places you might see in in the capital markets as leverage loans business. Dave Wilson, Bloomberg stocks editor thanks so much for joining us. Let's head over now.

"So Jason let's take a look at the S and P five hundred kind of an even split here. Two hundred sixty one names hiring the index today two hundred and forty lower four unchanged. I wanna talk about the number one gainer if I may in the S and P five hundred thank you very much. Viacom up about four percent, right jumping the most. Since august. They resolved a dispute with AT and T and I'd had to do with a contract dispute with AT. And so that put off a blackout that would have kept millions of pay TV customers from seeing cable channels such as Nickelodeon MTV, and I was reading let me just look Wells Fargo says that they think the contract resolution. Was a result of Viacom moving lower on price. I guess until the details come out, we won't know for sure. But anyway, investors liking the news, and you did see Viacom shares number one gainer S and P five hundred today. There you go one place that I was like, yeah, they seem to have actually come back a little bit the video game makers because that was one of the surprise that we heard from apple at that big event today the star studded event with Jennifer Aniston, Oprah Winfrey. Steve Carell big bird. But they were talking a little bit about video games, something we talk about a lot on this show and initially the video game makers, including take two interactive took a leg down. But take two ends up essentially flat. I was going to look at activision blizzard as well. As it's known it also ended up just a little bit. It's interesting too. Because you would think oh my God apple getting into the video game business. Now that would be Apple's playing video games. This was a situation where initially people might have been worried. They are not. Yeah. Exactly. Oprah's going to have a book club on apple shares. I didn't know I'll do it quickly. Just because of all that news. Apple shares at high today, but only up about half a percent. But by the close just excuse me down one point two percent, one hundred eighty dollars seventy four cents a share. Apple shares are up about twenty percent this year. So I think this is one of those things. Okay. Big move big transition becoming a services company, the potential that's where they've been seeing growth in terms of apple but never got to see how it all plays out. Right. And when we were talking to Angela Zeno over at CF RA earlier as this was still going on. What are the things he said was that he felt like there was a lot of run up in the stock leading up to this. This may have been a sort of by by on the news or buying the speculation sell on the news, or whatever the innovation is when you're talking about a big I on the rumor sell on the news. Yeah. I guess was it. But it was I guess it was rumor, right? I mean, it was fairly well telegraph what they were going to do right? It was going to be a TV channel that. It was all about sort of the thing. But thank you for correcting me street axiom. I'm here to help conagra is your third biggest gainer up three and a half percent. Trying to look, you know, the company is the CAS plotting. A turnaround. I guess with pinnacle conagra. They bought pinnacle. Forgive me, it's on track. This is something they said this was kind of last week. So I'm trying to see if we did see their third quarter results on Thursday. So maybe a little bit of a continuation in terms of some of the enthusiasm about this turnaround. Anyway, the stock was up three and a half percent. I think the stock guys are punishing you for correcting man that was pretty bad. It's up twenty eight percent this year. I know. Jeez. One set it aims. I wanted to make sure we looked at our the chip makers we talked a little bit about this with Dave Wilson who was mentioning that Texas Instruments and others were a little bit of a cautionary note out there in the market, Texas, Instruments, TSN Texan, as they call it down two point three percent, and that helped push the socks the Phillies semiconductor index down about one point three percent. And maybe kind of up because bird's-eye which is one of their brands introduced Evan roasters and expands their veggie made line of frozen offerings could be could be could be. You're just trying to make things I'm trying to make an extra thing. That's for. Sure. Let's do the volatility index report. Let's make Vada thing as well. Let's see the vix just down a hair was ticket out. Quite a lot of volatility in the vix itself. Jason the up as much as eight percent today. More than eight percent. In fact, down point three percent by the close just out about half a percent. This is so such a great picture in terms of the market tone today after what happened on Friday a lot of selling nervousness about the inverted yield curve concerns about global growth, especially after that disappointing news out of the European zone and Germany as well today. Everybody kind of taken a breather and trying to figure out. Okay, now, where do we go from here? Yeah. Exactly. One of the things that I like to look at as you do is what people are reading and one stock story that people have been clicking on over the last hour. So on the Bloomberg Canada goose, and I feel like this is one of those stocks that and candidly stories that people on the Bloomberg read because they all wear Canada goose, you know, you walk down the Manhattan got those big expensive Jackson. I don't have a candidate goes. That's why be. But two day slide down as much as five point six percent today. Five point eight percent down on Friday. It was up thirty nine percent in two thousand eighteen it's only up about five percent year to date here in New York. Now, what are the big stories just want to squeeze this before we go to break is we're watching Brexit to see what happens in terms of Theresa May J P Morgan now moving ahead their pushing about three hundred London-based investment banking staff to sign fresh contracts confirming that they will leave the UK in the event of a no deal Brexit list. According to those in the know, we talked about that on TV this morning in America. America's when you were co hosting with Alex Steele. Yes was delightful conversation. Well, what's interesting is? It's companies are making decisions right there. Like, we gotta do stuff. And maybe they're seeing a deadline. Incite absolutely. And even though we see Theresa May continuing to try and make the case, I think back to cover the international cover a few weeks ago. Persisted, she persisted, cheap persisted. And she keeps going still not clear how that story ends in any case. In the meantime, speaking of the world that's gets more than national headlines for that. We got about Bodmin payback Jason Carroll. Thank you celebrity lawyer, Michael never got the whole news conference that he announced this morning on Twitter involving Nike soon after his tweet.

I'm not saying it's not going to go. I think ultimately be who. Takes the first plunge buys that that's when media gets a bunch of thought. This would happen the minute, the AT and t. Time Warner ruling came down. Yeah, hasn't happened. I think you're right. I think once the first deal happens, then I think I think if you look at via by the way, the bankers are all peddling this right now. Anyway, the only difference between the Bank or presentations of whether it's on eleven by fourteen or you know, twelve by whatever. And you know, it's, it's, they're all the same charts. I think it'd be looking at Viacom. For example, if you're looking at a the reason for the for the combination, which doesn't make sense necessarily strategically to stay alive is that CBS is probably an easier to sell them. It's own Viacom with the cable. Networks are harder, but the combined gives you the leverage of retreads, but it also allows you to MTV networks because you have to get to CBS, right? This is the logic. The doesn't want to say out loud and I don't. I think she believes but doesn't want to say allow which will work with anymore. I want to sell EM TV. I can't sell MTV on its own or the maybe the. Maybe the value of CBS goes down a little bit of smashed together with MTV, but to use value goes up enough to cover it. It makes a lot of sense for her in all, you know disclosure, she's one of the redefined Besters and I know her well, but I don't have any inside information on a Viacom, but the cable businesses challenged the MTV brand is not where it used to be Nickelodeon looking for senior executive right now to run the company. Whereas CBS you know, Leslie has had the one of the probably the greatest track record in the history of programming. So they have solid shows in the of the NFL which is a must have. I knew this is going to happen. I knew we're get twenty minutes into this and that would say we gotta take a break. So what are you doing? There's we monetize this Jason. Oh my God. What if I give you? One hundred dollars, we keep going, where's the money? All right on.

Publications that are on the problem. Yeah, it's like part of the DNA info. So he like van mode, somebody and then he got a website now. Ouster in the lyrics of one of the songs and he later released a statement that said, his purchase of Chicago was to bring the people of Chicago, an independent media outlet focused on amplifying diverse voices and content. But as we all know, chance has been accused of buying the paper in response to his perceived unfair criticism that he routinely gets from other Chicago outlets outlets that he knows out in the song Chicago outlets he literally has gotten his criticism taken out of certain Viacom properties. I will not name. Amy, I'm like chance. The publisher is really a chance sensor human being because it's so young to have developed this weird like Silicon Valley, Barron personality. I love it like owning a website is what makes you look on valley Barron? He's listen. He's on the track. He abused the word independent more than any other musician outright. He still calls himself an independent rapper and we know that apple music is footing those bills and keeping him in Capri. Suns. Kit Kat bar. Moralising he was in a bear suit is just like, ooh, independent. Are you sir? Can't money. Listen. He said he's an opinion and say, he doesn't love capitalism. Listen, I have issues a couple of I'm not going to die, broke batch either one of the Chicago papers that he talks about in that track wrote about how he literally did this song. Yeah, this is how I mean, he's collapsing his musician identity with his corporate identity, but one of these papers reported that he and his now fiancee's, they have a child support issue and there's like a quote from someone talking, he proposed to. This is all timed, obviously, right? And he, you know, they talk about how he like exhibits a lot like way too much control over her, which is so scary to me because he has done so well in terms of like making himself the counter to like Connie west in Chicago, you know, Chicago, the heat entreat the city well, but I'm gonna treat the city well and people believe him. Yeah, there's like more dissent online people realizing that the image that he crafted it's not Corey. Image, but he's just he's. He has a lot of power at a very young age and I just don't trust right. So he lashed out on the song against cranes and Chicago Sun-Times for reporting on the child support incident acts, he's beefing with publish also mentioning that like in his song that he, you know, he's helped raise to millions of arts and education programs and Chicago public schools. You know, like his response seems to be I'm donating money and trying to make Chicago a better place.

Like uncle dean, bouquet. I know listen, you're gonna laugh when it's jazzy. Times JC is here's the thing.

Like he is asking for the directions to Sesame Street, totally. He looks very innocent and whatever, but you know, the truth is that like money and couples are corrupting forces and people's lives, and he is not immune to that.
