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

Cvs got a government contract to distribute vaccines in long term care facilities. Can you tell us what that's gonna look like over. Thirty thousand long-term care facilities have selected. Cvs as their partner and then they also have fairly large staffs so we expect. This could be you know upwards of about three million folks. We have committed that we will do at least three clinics within each of these long term care facilities the first and second to give the first dose in the booster and then the third clinic to really be able to offer to any patients who were admitted in between our first and second clinic. That booster shot. How many people does cvs have working on keeping track of the bureaucratic piece of this a lot and listen. We've got my team in retail pharmacy. We've got our partners and operations and then our field organization right that the folks who managed the stores manage the pharmacies and the pharmacists and technicians. Themselves that's gonna be thousands of people. When do you hope to finish the entire process for this population for long term care the start dates are going to be rolling based on individuals state decisions but we would expect that from the date we start in any given jurisdiction it will take us about six to eight weeks to vaccinate fully the vast majority of the population meaning. We will have their first and their second dose complete both for the long term care contract and for the general population. How are you thinking about the potential financial benefits for cvs yet. Listen you know. Cms which is the center for medicaid and medicare services has released that they'll be providing administration fee for the doses themselves and that administration fee is very much in line with what we get for other vaccines that we administer and our agreements with federal government. Don't have any other financial component to them other than that per shot administrative fee. What can the experience of immunizing people at long term care facilities teach us about the wider vaccine distribution for the general population. Listen this is going to be our first experience handling these particular products and they are in line with what we would see from other specialty medications other vaccines that we've handled in the past. And so i think that you know that will create efficiencies in the process of administration just having people get those reps for the broader population right. It's i anticipate that right now. You're seeing a lot of vaccine hesitancy across the country. But i anticipate that as more and more people in these first phases get back whether that be in the long term care facilities or the healthcare workers and the rest of the population sees that. Hey people are okay after getting this vaccine and we're starting to actually see infection rates drop in those populations. I think that's going to help to remove a lot of that vaccine hesitancy as well. When are you gonna get vaccinated. I will get vaccinated as soon as i am. Eligible to get activated. Like i trust the process. I've been able to hear from some of the experts on this. And i have full confidence that you know i will be safe getting one of these vaccines and that is the right thing to do. So as soon as you know. I'm in a population that is eligible to get it. I'm getting that vaccine. So what are the stakes for. Cvs right now in getting vaccine distribution. Right look i think this is one of the largest mobilizations. That we've ever undertaken has company. And i also think it's one of the most purpose driven operations that we've ever undertaken the health crisis of our lifetime so to be able to play a role in ending that is a huge responsibility and the huge opportunity. So this is a calling that we wanna make sure we get.

"Change healthcare dot com slash the journal. Ooh can you believe that the day is almost here that you can actually start distributing covert vaccine. I can't believe it it's been you know a huge part of my life and my focus over the last several months some of that very exciting some of the very nerve wrecking and some of the early data from the manufacturers is really encouraging so hopefully this is our path back to normalcy in addition to working on back distribution. Chris cox is cvs liaison to operation warp speed. That's the government's supercharged. Effort to create and distribute a vaccine. He's been in their weekly meetings about vaccine distribution. Since may personally it must have been pretty exciting to be an operation warp speed meetings like here. is this pandemic. the nation is crushed by it. All shut down. But you're at the table looking for a solution. You are absolutely right. I mean definitely exciting in. Its despite all the nerve wrecking elements and the uncertainty of the different elements. There is something that is really rewarding and fun candidly about being able to be on the inside. Your neighbors must always want to talk to you. Definitely and my parents did it. Feel strange to plan distribution months before there was a prospect of a vaccine being approved. I think when you think about the magnitude of the effort and you think about the impacts that the pandemic is having on the country. I think you know the goal was. Let's be ready to go on day. One let's have the plans in place so that we can be as efficient as possible. What are some of the challenges you're planning for the biggest challenge throughout the entire effort to me has been the number of unknowns right and just number of scenarios that we had to be planning for. We didn't know was one vaccine going to be more effective than the other one going to work for one population and not the other. We didn't know exactly how we were going to need to transport the doses until more recently so for us it's been an effort and scenario planning thinking through what are all the various scenarios that could occur and then what will be monitoring for our supply chain challenges in you expect the processes to be you know well honed and ready to go. Chris has worked at cvs for over a decade but he isn't a public health expert. He's a corporate executive and part of his job was to make the case to the government. The private pharmacies should provide the vaccine. I mean number one. Look we've got thirty thousand pharmacists sixty thousand pharmacy technicians who sit in almost every community within the united states they are trained to be able to give vaccines and then think about the backhand right. We've got systems in place that number one helped to ensure that people are given the proper medication which is really key here for these vaccines because when you get one dose of one of the vaccines you have to get the same manufacturer for your second dose. So you know when you think about what. It's going to require to get this vaccine now. We are a channel that can get it out to a broad number of people really quickly and really efficiently with all of that combined. You know we're gonna play a huge role here. Why is cbs. The company that americans should trust with the covid vaccine. Listen i mean i. I think because the most trusted professions in the united states at the top of the list are pharmacists and nurses. And we've got almost thirty thousand pharmacists and we've got over three thousand nurse practitioners in our in our cvs pharmacies in our minute clinics and we fell over a billion medications every year. And then when you think about vaccines we have been providing vaccines for over a decade. So this is part of core capability and it's part of what people already trust us to do. So the government has given cvs several contracts to help distribute the covid vaccine. Can you paint us a picture of what that might look like at a. Cvs store is going to be pretty simple right because you will have already major appointment online or you know for folks who don't have digital access. We will have the ability to do that through eight hundred number. But you'll come in. You can either check in on your mobile device or check in at the pharmacy. The pharmacist will come out from behind the counter with a hand held device much like an iphone or android and the have vaccine itself. And then they'll ask you to roll up your sleeve and give your shot.

"More traditional delivery. This is one thing domino's and Amazon have used last mile drones none of. Of It's widespread. This is a very viable model. If Say New York City, where decide to shut down some of its streets, except for commercial traffic, this might make sense in in Florida where there are a ton of gated enclosed closed communities full of older people, so all the drone would have to do is Get through the gate and then it could make deliveries. There's use for this, but this is not going to be the widespread way. CVS sends prescriptions out. Although one of the things. I read in this story. Is that and I know that CVS has a big footprint. I didn't realize it was this big one of the stats from neuro is that seventy six percent of people in the United States live within five miles of CVs pharmacy. Over I overstated the number a little bit earlier, but it still stunning. I mean that's an astonishing number and. To your point, this is something that if this test goes well. Does, it rolled out nationwide. Probably not, but this is the sort of thing that they can cherry pick locations. Across the country and say yeah. If you live in this zip code here, they're. All three time zones. Not To pick on Alaska and Hawaii. Yes, okay, yeah, also. What is it six time zones I? Guess we have in the United States if we're going. I'm just thinking continental United States you know what I meant in. I don't know this. This is going to be really interesting test to watch because I do think. If this goes well for CVS, they have a lot of optionality in terms of where they can roll this out Chris. There's a lot of hurdles here because these are prescription drugs when. Delivering to my building and theory that drone could pull up and just leave everything and the front desk. Person could put them in the Amazon lockers. This is much like getting an instant liquor delivery. You actually have to go up to the drone and scan your license, and then it scans you to make sure you're actually you so with INSTA-. My wife can pick it up. It doesn't have to be me in. In the case of this, there are some headaches that person who's ill and older in Florida might not be able to go to the door to get their prescription, so there's a little bit of a gimmick here, but if you look at this, it's just one tool at CVs as disposal there at the forefront and it's it's an interesting case to watch, but again it's not going to be a widespread thing. But in terms of the economics, hot like you imagine cvs. If this goes well, do you imagine this just becomes sort of an added cost that they tack on and pass along to the consumer because the I can't imagine this is an prime. This isn't hey. Pay This annual fee and we'll just lobby and all this other stuff. So there would be some sort of fee attached to it, wouldn't it yeah I would assume a four ninety nine know sorta like a Grub? Hope kind of model, but I also see like so I live in a building with about three hundred fifty units, and maybe a third of the people are elderly. CVS could probably fill up. One drone CVs about a mile down the road or one autonomous vehicle. Tell people. We're going to be at the building at eleven o'clock..

And you can't possibly have been exposed to all of all of it in a year so I want a portfolio that demonstrates what they've dog but also I quite like it when you tell me what you could do better because the whole thing about dentistry all my life is it's a constant never ending journey of learning and improving on of the mindset.

"Spent ten years in my life studying their banking system their financial system. And now how they operate. I'm looking at China's grand strategy and I've spent a lot lot of my own capital in time dealing with some of the most ridiculous issues that are in the marketplace. It is insane that. US Tax payers are backing the World Bank to lend money to a country again. That's advanced as China. The World Bank is supposed to be lending to poor nations that have aggrieved populations populations that have vulnerable populations and we're trying to help lift people up out of poverty. China's got more millionaires around the world. That almost anyone and they are a ravaged ravid consumer of many of the world's top brands and as we all know the largest strategic military competitor in the world that the US has and for some reason we keep keep giving them billions of dollars. Hey Easy I want to thank you for your today. It's good to see you good to see opiates stranger and today Republican Congressman Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio joined US ahead of the hearing scheduled this afternoon. That's on his new. Bill called the ACCOUNTABILITY FOR WORLD BANK LOANS TO CHINA ACT. Let's talk about what you think is happening here. Hi Why. Why do you think that China's still continuing to get loans from the World Bank even though it clearly doesn't meet the guidelines that have been laid out well one of China's strategies development goals also is to essentially influence in some ways take over many of our international institutions? And I think they've done an incredible job at the World Bank. Frankly what they have done internationally or nationally not just in the. US is basically forced people to make a trade and save you want access to our markets which are enormous. You have to play by our rules. And as part of that what that is staying in the World Bank as a member of that can draw loans to me it makes no sense whatsoever why the US tax payer should be backing subsidized discounted rates to the Chinese government so that they can continue their development model which is unbelievably oppressive but also damaging to our economy and our country. How serious do you? I think the United States is your your fellow lawmakers in terms of pulling back holding from pulling back support for the World Bank if this continues well the one something that I think is helpful is that we're getting strong. Leadership from the administration on the China issue specifically and it has bipartisan support. Your even Chuck Schumer support certain things so right now. We introduced our bill a couple of weeks ago. And we're just rounding up co-sponsors. I suspect that we'll be able to turn this into a bipartisan initiative. Time will tell. Things are odd in Congress these days but But having said that I am optimistic at because I haven't heard much pushback at all on on the fundamentals of the bill and and frankly I think the World Bank issue is one. That's it's just not on a lot of people's radar came onto my radar as I started researching ways inside of the Financial Services Committee to push back on Chinese influence and this was the most obvious one and the most glaring being whole That we had in our system and so we went for it and I think others will jump on board as well congressman. I'm glad to hear you say that. This seems like this sort of bill that Elizabeth Warren and president trump could agree on. Are you in your private conversations optimistic that there will be that bipartisan support. Because without that it's it's dead on arrival. Yeah I am now. We did have an interesting fight in the committee on the sandbank with respect to China and I was a little disappointed that some of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle while weren't more enthusiastic about putting some provisions in there but this is a different issue and I think this is more obvious issue and so by the World Bank's own rules. China was supposed to graduate years ago that the limit is sixty nine hundred dollars in gross national income China's near ten thousand today day. There's no reason why they shouldn't graduate of. But they've influenced the World Bank to such a degree from an HR standpoint but also just politically they haven't graduated and so I think we need to make sure that they do. Here's what I don't understand. I mean this seems like such a clear cut case. These are the rules. According to the rules they shouldn't be getting these these loans. How complicated is it to clear that up and and for those who are defending this? What what is their argument? Well so there's a second provision which says that on top of the gross national income threshold they have to have developed markets and sophisticated markets in China saying. Hey wait a minute are markets. Aren't sophisticated enough. We can't graduate now. I think that's a horrible argument. Considering the fact that they have two different development banks that compete directly with the World Bank not to mention how develop their economy so they pass the the data threshold of sixty nine hundred mark. But they also pass in my estimation on the sophistication Margaret gets it's laughable that they would try to make that argument but they have support in the international community inside the World Bank for just that I don't think it's crazy. What what will it mean if they can no longer get loans? What will I UH-HUH SO money's fungible right and so if they can draw discounted rates from the World Bank that means that they can deploy capital elsewhere? And so what this would do I believe is it would cut off a particular capital source. That is it that they acquire at a discounted rate enforce them in some ways to play by the rules of the national order. In addition they use their status at the World Bank at to influence the WTO. And so. I think you'd have fallen effects. Not just at the World Bank but also so inside of the WTO that to get them again to play by the rules that they've agreed to themselves which they keep breaking. I want to buy some futures on you.

Here's a chance to remind you that squawk box is a three hour morning show on CNBC and here on Squawk Pod we create the best moments conversation and even breaking news like today about CEO Shuffle. All right we've got some breaking news right now. Let's get to fill Abo-. He joins us with more Phil. Becky we've got a leadership change coming at United Airlines the company announcing that CEO. Oscar Oscar Munoz Munoz. Excuse me we'll be turning over the job. As chief executive officer effective in Maimuna will be stepping down as CEO who we'll be elevated to the position of executive chairman replacing Munoz effective next May president. Scott Kirby Kirby was brought over to united from American Airlines back in two thousand and sixteen with the mandate to improve the performance of the airline to make it more profitable particularly here in North America where it was trailing its competitors just a few minutes ago both moon does and Kirby sent out a video message announcing the transition to employees plays at United. Here's what they had to say. This is meant to be a very seamless transition until May of two thousand twenty Scott and I will continue and our same roles. Doing the thing that you've seen US do before specifically from my perspective on our customer culture and importantly for you our employees we have an incredibly strong position and incredibly bright the future ahead and personally excited to spend even more time out with all of you listening to you sharing your enthusiasm for the future And together building the best airline in the history of aviation. If you're not familiar with the airline industry or with United Airlines. You might be saying well. Who is Scott Kirby the end? Why is he going to become CEO? Starting next May as I mentioned Kirby was brought to united in two thousand sixteen but the back story behind Kirby is from two thousand six to two thousand sixteen. He was the top lieutenant for Doug Parker as they turned America West into US Air US air into into American Airlines and they really racked up impressive performance. That's why mundos brought Kirby over in two thousand sixteen since then United's been on a pretty nice roll especially here in the last couple of years. So again Scott. Kirby the architect of the company's rebound he will move from president to CEO Effective Next Bay. Oscar Munoz will move from CEO to executive chairman. The Chairman of the Board of directors. Currently Jane Garvey. She will be leaving the board inmate guys back to you. I guess that's the biggest question. I mean Oscar Munoz has been on a bit of a role. I guess why now. Because he's only five years. Well look at it from the perspective of if you are the United Board of directors. You've got Scott Kirby who is. He's not the only reason that United's done well. But he's a big factor behind it. Rumors have been swirling in the airline industry that American Airlines which has been struggling this year. The stock is down. Twenty six percent rumors have been swirling that perhaps American might be interested in bringing Scott Kirby back to American Airlines. Now we put this question to the spokespeople at United and they say no. This was a case of the board and Oscar Munoz saying it's time for this transition to make it a smooth transition. This settles it for where Kirby goes I mean is. There's nothing nothing about this. So right right right and now look you know. I'm I'm sure there will be people who say look you know. American didn't reach out to cut Scott Kirby we don't know that America was going to hire Scott Kirby the numbers speak for themselves over the last couple of years united is performing much better than and it did in the past. And if you're not American maybe you're a different airline at some point you might be saying. WHO's the best person out there for us to straighten things out? If we're not doing well investors taking a look at it they're gonNA say United's up fifty percent over the last two years and Americans down fifty percent. We we like Oscar. Wh Why is he leaving and I think in obvious question that's going to get ask is is this health related and I know I mentioned that because I had a serious health care of years ago we asked that question. It is not health related. I think to an extent Oscar Munoz will look at this transition as a chance to do something very few executives.

Giant is one year into its merger with Aetna creating a one hundred ninety five billion dollar healthcare company. That's the eighth largest in the fortune. Five hundred although it runs more than nine thousand stores the new CVS CVS health is no longer just retail. It's also a pharmacy benefits manager. One of the nation's largest insurers and runs a burgeoning chain of healthcare clinics and as is so often the case with the big companies. CBS has held talks with an activist. Investor starboard value has taken a stake in the company. We'll talk about all that. Here's Larry Merlo and yes he started as is a pharmacist. CEO OF CVS health. Larry it's great to see you right to be here becky. So where are you just over a year end you know what has been a terrific year. The Integration Gratien of the two companies has gone very. Well I in many respects. Were ahead of schedule. On many of the integration activities and as a result the synergy dollars associated associated with integration is ahead of plan and at the same time we begun. The transformation journey were bringing innovative products and services to market The most visible side of that the health clubs They've gotten off to a great start in Houston and we've laid a solid foundation for growth in in the years to come in The credit for this goes to our three three hundred thousand colleagues. They're absolutely committed to our vision or strategy and they're working hard to bring it to life. Where are you ahead of expectations? In terms of in terms of the combination factors factors into what the there were many many synergy activities in terms of combining the companies as it relates to the back office pharmacy programs and priorities. And those are the things that have garnered A lot of momentum and ahead of ahead of plan there and again. We're excited with With what's happening with the health clubs and in some of the other products that That we have in pilot and In the response we're getting from our customers. The stock over the course of the year has is not performed strongly but you have picked up pretty sharply over the last nine months and if we compared to what's been happening with walgreens shares. It's a much different story. They've been under quite a bit of pressure as there's been concerns concerns about what's happening in the pharmacy so it does look from that relative perspective like you guys made the right move by pivoting. What have you heard from starboard when they came in what? What are the conversations that they've started? Well Becky I'm not gonNA comment on market speculation. What I will say is we have a regular dialogue with our investors? We certainly appreciate Their their input and You know in their feedback and look I think. Investors see the momentum in the business. We've had three consecutive quarters where we've where we beat expectations and they're seeing tangible signs of our vision coming to life with things like the health ups and you know we had an investor. Yesterday in early June we laid out our strategy and more important the path forward over the next three years and the stock spin up about forty percent since that meeting. Larry when I I look at your stock your trading more with the AETNA purchase your trading more like a united healthcare trading as as opposed to a drugstore company. How should investors at home think about your company and how to value well Tom? We are a healthcare company. Today that journey began many years ago and we celebrated five years. Here's this past September of eliminating the sale of tobacco. was there with you. I was on the Stock Exchange for third. We rang the bell. It was it was a great day and at a day day that made us all proud was fun and we look back. You know five years ago. It was absolutely the right decision. It's open doors for partnership for acquisitions. Obviously Asleep the pinnacle of that is the acquisition and We are healthcare company today and and we have an opportunity putting the consumer at the center of our strategy you to transform the way healthcare is delivered in our country of of CVS moved very quickly in terms of saying they weren't going to sell tobacco. I remember at the time that was a little bit of a controversial move although so it has seemed to pay dividends for. Cvs what do you think about. What's happening with vaping right now becky? It's a great question and I can remember the question we got back then was well. Will you carry the e cigarettes and yeah I remember going into A A retail establishment that was selling the products and and I saw the device vice with the Hello Kitty logo in the bubble gum flavored liquid. And you know it it absolutely raise the question in terms of we'll wait a minute. What are we doing here and five years later we see what has happened? post the tobacco announcement. We started a campaign. We are working with community partners. Be the first create the first tobacco free generation. We've made a lot of progress. We have more than two hundred college and university campuses that are tobacco free today as a result of that program. But you vaping is taking us backwards you see some of the statistics vaping up more than seventy percent with school aged children and I saw some stats recently. That more within seventy percent of high school students that are vaping will turn to tobacco upon graduation. So we've got a reverse try to really the tough one you know. Why because as an anti nanny stater I'm just drawn to wanting to regulate vaping and I feel like my like I'm going against this is different for yeah? This is totally your kids. That's what I mean marketing to kids and become a nanny state. That's like a one exception into the role in Ken. langone man Bloomberg. I know. But you're right it's like we would just get off the nicotine from the delivery system of the cigarette and now when you were found a new delivery system for nicotine flavors like Cotton Candy. It's just Joe. The challenge in in the problem is. We're we're seeing it play out you know with some of the tragedies that have been you know unfortunately well publicized as you know we don't know the longitude no effect of these products and and and if something has to be done Larry as an investor I'd think about that move to eliminate tobacco products. I think it was courageous. I like the deal. The last six or nine months have been fabulous abuse But yet the stock is down over five year periods. So talk to us about the Amazon risk. Talk to us about the risks of the business and as an investor as we think about your say that like every sentence that's amazing what's as an investor. That's weird anyway. Okay go ahead. Sorry where how should I think about the business for a year from now or two years. Well Tom you'd think about with the customer. The consumer at the center of our strategy we spent a lot of time with our customers What are their needs? What are they frustrated with? How do we bring solutions? That in maybe set another way. How do we make sure we're not leaving? Any white space to be disrupted by other forms of competition. And you've seen a number of things in terms of You you know the the elements of how do we make You Know How do we redefine convenience and you can think of some of the things that we're doing Omni channel has you know is is a term that is probably over used to some degree bed you know in some respects.
