"hyatt marriott" Discussed on CNBC's Fast Money
"Need all the help. They got the traders. Take on this debate. Plus a bumpy year. So far. here's a fedex. But went out considers. Betting things are about to change fast monies back into not too late to sign up for the for the inclusion in action. Form tomorrow at one. Pm eastern. we'll take a look at what companies can do to create equity for all big names like roger ferguson. Melanie hobson tracy. Ellis ross register now at cnbc events dot com slash inclusion well airlines doctors. Some of the hardest hit during the pandemic major industry players loss as much as eighty percent of their value from p trough last year. And we're forced to appeal to congress. Multiple times for aid was the eventual bailout. Really needed in a column for the new york. Times deal book andrew. Ross sorkin argues that quote once again. We have socialized and industries losses em- privatize its prophets. Basically what the government did was bailout shareholders. Tim seymour go to you. Your shareholder your tax. Payer what do you think kind of caught in the middle of this one I i i guess my expectation was that especially the better balance sheets in the sector. Could have gotten through without the bailout. I think the credits and the grants Across the board blindly for the sector or are an example of what we've done in the past and are not fair and again think of executives at the airlines that are that are essentially Incentivized and paid and comp through shoppers. So they were really bailed out. I i know. We bailed out a lot of folks in the airline industry. And i think we kept job. Search almost full pay But think about the restaurant industry think nothing was done for these people and i don't think they're businesses are gonna come back and so In many cases ever So i think the inconsistency here is A dynamic that's very very frustrating But i recognized the strategic importance of the airline industry especially to get the economy back on track when it was time. Yeah i'm andrew. Mesa point that with the twenty five billion dollars the original bailout on package about seventy five thousand jobs or saved at a cost of about three hundred thousand dollars each not sure if that's the right metric gauge the success or the failure of this program this particular program on mccarron. What do you think. Numerous times in the past airlines have gone through bankruptcy. They've done fine so their argument that we had to keep the airline industry afloat etc. They would have kept line. They could have kept flying in bankruptcy. We've seen that time and time again. Yes and there's a lot of things that that article that i really agree with. And that's one of them. We've seen airlines in bankruptcy and the other one is why this particular industry right you have hilton and hyatt marriott. They also employ hundreds of thousands of employs. And yet you didn't see anything remotely close to any kind of assistance like that. And i don't understand why you need bail out. The shareholders shareholders were a risk asset. You know we're not they don't the government shouldn't be given us a free put that they're gonna bail us out if things don't go well so i'm really against that. And when we look at other really important bankruptcies like gm in the financial crisis right. that's that's i don't know how many jobs it was but the government. They gave them money and they took a giant steak. And i don't understand why they weren't entitled to a giant state here. I know they got a tiny bit of warrants that andrew sites in his piece but nothing remotely close so i don't see why they didn't do a big convert. Just it just seemed like excellent lobbying by the airlines unfortunate for the others are not necessarily for the government to do all right. Steve just quickly because you actually think that It was right to bail them out. i do. I think that you know we could argue over how they did it and what they should have gotten but when you look at the entire industry it's not so much the direct industry. It's the fact that it's probably one Point seven trillion. I think the estimates have been made as far as economic activity that's required that's dependent on the airlines and it's ten million jobs all those ancillary jobs and everything else that revolves around it so i do understand what everyone else is saying but i think they had act i. This is the first time we've been hit with a pandemic like this. So i'm okay if they used a sledge hammer on an aunt right now. I think it was warranted coming up where county down to earnings from fedex. Why this quarter could be shipping for the shipping giant stadium. Welcome pass money. Fedex reports earnings after the bell tomorrow. It's been a bumpy quarter for the shipping stocks. So far but mike o. Spot is emotions activity. That could point to a big breakout. So mike what you see. Yeah so actually. The options traders seemed to favor calls over puts by about two one over the last twenty days more than that today. Actually right now. The options market is implying. A of about sixty two quarter percent after they report earnings tomorrow right. Now we've seen though of course over the last eight quarters. His moves on average of over eight percent. Most of that activity is focused in the march. Two eighty strike calls are paying about three dollars for those. So buyers of those calls are betting that will make a move of about that implied amount six and a quarter percent or more to the upside by the end of the week. Karen you've got a sizable position. Your words in fedex at this point for yes i do. I'm looking for a good quarter of the only fly in the argument that i see is most likely would be something from the weather. This quarter doesn't clued february. See it's very bad weather in there. But i think we're gonna see improvement from ground optimistic and i'm long very long all right. Thanks mike for that often. More options action. Be sure tune into the full show. That's friday.

"At eighty six and a half billion dollars that is bigger than booking holdings marriott hilton and expedia and it goes beyond travel with. Today's gains. Airbnb is now bigger than target and goldman sachs. We could talk about money being left on the table. We talk about the huge. I stay pop but the question that we need to answer tonight is simply. Does that make sense. That i mean what you say. They're into four billion dollars in revenue. They're expecting double digit revenue growth. At least the analysts are start doing the math. I mean it's going to take in my opinion five years to deserve this valuation. And maybe that's the way the world is right now. Maybe people don't care maybe this sort of the grey fool theory thing but when you sort of look at this and look at jordache yesterday and save yourself. What am i missing i. It doesn't make any sense to me. It takes a long time to grow in these evaluations. And oh by the way we didn't even talk about but the employment Situation this country is not getting better. As a matter of fact that seems to be getting worse and although we can talk about know the summer of next year things getting back to normal a long time from here to there so in my world. It's ridiculously expensive melissa. Karen what do you make of. It will one thing that i found really interesting. That didn't notice until this afternoon. When i looked at the s one they actually the company themselves or the entity of the company was not actually selling stock. It was all it looked at employee. Ease and you know about hundreds of names of people selling so. I don't know that the company really left any money off the on the table And even if they did they were selling thirty one million shares out of you know ever two hundred sixty but whatever the number is it something much much greater all that. Haven't been though it's crazy. I don't get it at all. it's crazy. I mean it reminds me of two thousand reminds me of you know ridiculous first day you know up things up a thousand percent that ended up going zero. Not but i think this is. There's real value here for sure. There's real value endure dash this much real value. I don't really get it. And that total addressable market. It somewhat reminds me of you know in two thousand they would price things by eyeballs. I mean these other travel companies. They still have a gigantic addressable market as well. And they're not trading anything close. So i don't get it. Maybe the thought though is that airbnb will displace the business of a hyatt marriott and and the other companies which it now eclipses evaluation. Dan can you. Can you get your arms around that sort of explanation. Well it's funny. You know a few years ago when we saw gig economy companies really take off and we were really worried about the displacement of a lot of businesses a lot of workers because of this disruption. And when you think about it. The hospitality industry has at least a hotel in. She has two and a half million workers that are a lot of them. Furloughed right now probably are out of jobs so if airbnb comes back and they've really attacked that addressable market which a lot of people think they do there's going to be tremendous disruption in our workforce here so you know. Listen it's a great company. You know we were all renting houses on vr be. Oh ten years ago before airbnb existed. It's not like they invented the space or anything like that so to me at eight billion dollars. It doesn't make a whole heck of a lot of sense but this is not on the bankers and it's not on the company's it's investors who want to buy it here point there. Let's talk more about the airbnb with one of its original. Investors rick heights. Men is founder and partner at first capital. Rick good to see you to see you again. Run into everybody's great. You still own chairs at this point. Have you sold any so zero scope. Dustin louis in happy so i guess i guess that answers short answers this question but slightly different because you got in and a much lower cost basis. If you're to put money to work at this moment in time would you buy airbnb stock at one hundred forty four dollars a share. Would i think differently than some of the stocks. You've seen pop recently erie as really set up for either. The kind of deposed vaccination world post kobe where people traveling maybe not a great business and you know you think about consumer brands going forward now become verb for both hosts and guests so the ability to build that market place and be part of a kind of permanent part of the twenty first century economies aware he records tim facts rejoined the next. Would you say airbnb was helped or hurt by covid. You look at how they were pitching this deal They were certainly making. It seem as if this was a very friendly way to travel and the great irony here is that they seem to have benefited from it. Really is a great irony san. If you would've told us in february that airbnb wasn't going to be a public company equal shot and if you would have told us in june that airbnb was going to be of accompanying twenty twenty. We would have been chopped so originally especially coming out of the early signs of china. I the company tremendously negatively impact dubai. Kobe You know. obviously but nice wanted a couple of months of negative revenue. More cancellations and bookings. But i think as all of us adapted the company apted and now quarter of its bookings for twenty eight days or more so in this work from home work from everywhere culture. Air be amazed and it's become a warrant from an airbnb and they've captured that part of the market. In addition at least when i started traveling for business again. I'd rather not be around people. I don't need a big or seen or big restaurant. I'd rather be safe and secure place in my own. And i think that plays into clearly the the direction areas being beings going on the on this side. I think that originally started out as if thing and now taken advantage of the kobe. Hey rick it's dan congrats on another great exit. Here's the question i have for you. The word exit right. There's a lot of different ways that private companies can come to the public markets. We've seen the traditional ipo airbnb and door dash. Today we've seen in past ones where Direct listing spotify slack. That sort of think you're vc..

Why do you ask So many of the fast food chains have decided to offer plant based burgers? Burger King In particular, it seems to have done pretty well with it. Interesting, though, that McDonald's is not doing it. Cranes has an interesting article today about how Makdisi is potentially leaving money on the counter because it is not offering a fake a burger. The point made those that Jesus all about speed, especially during covert, where McDonald's has streamlined its menu to keep the drive through. Is moving, Adding fake burgers is not out of the question for McDonald's, but Probably just not right now, By the way, in case you're interested in just how big the fake meat biz is sales this year through October 10th US grocery stores and other food retailers of In what we call raw fake meat are about $195 million seems like a lot nothing to sneeze at, until until you compared with really raw meat sales during the same period of $48.5 billion So just kind of a drop in the old bucket there.

"hyatt marriott" Discussed on Thrivetime Show | Business School without the BS
"A very special occasion because on today's show, we're interviewing a man about this incredible new piece of work here called sticking points how to get five generations working together in the twelve places they come apart Hayden. Shaw we'll come onto the thrive time show how are you? Threatening you thrive you doing the flow feeling on the floor. You're feeling the fleas you sound you sound like you're smelling good. Would you agree? You know what I am smelling. Good. So tell us what is this sticking points project. Tell us what is this? For Twenty five years up and helping organizations sort out what to do with these multiple generations and they just keep coming. And as I said, in the book you know used to be that people died at age but now you know with healthcare and an eating right and a little talks you have no idea how old people are, and so people just keep living and living in now result we we live thirty years longer average person. One hundred hundred years ago, and so as a result, we've got five generations now we just keep stacking up in the workplace. So if I'm listening right now and what I'm going to do, I'm GonNa let you get into some meat on today's show. So people can decide whether you're you're you're book is a right fit for them but before I do that I, want to kind of go back into your background just to kind of build up your credibility there for the listeners out there what was your background or what is your background previous to writing this book? I worked with I worked with Stephen Covey. And employees and managers and people in organizations all over the world. So. Toto Oh one, hundred, fifty, thousand people. Wow. Thirty thousand managers. That's impressive. That's impressive. Now, folks out there we have some listeners of all different generations. It listen to the show I know who Stephen Covey as. Legend in the best selling a book space but. Share the listeners a little bit about Stephen Covey and maybe the hit book that most entrepreneurs my age the book that he wrote that most entrepreneurs mileage would know about. And now, the interesting thing is how many people have had it in as a textbook somewhere in either high school or or colic. So seven habits of highly effective people in high school version of it was seven. Habits of highly effective teens, and so I'm surprised when I when I teach groups of people right out right out of college I'm surprised probably a third of them are familiar with it and. So that's the that's the most famous. That's the one I probably taught the most, but there's a bunch more four disciplines of execution just exceptional and helping organizations figure out how to how make the main thing. The main thing let's say this I I believe that you're credible not have you need my validation, but I just want listeners to know. We just meet a guy out front of my building and say, let's get this guy on this show. Okay. So now you're you've you have experienced, you've consulted with a lot of top companies final question just so the folks can really feel. Like they're ready to take some notes here. What are some of the big companies that you have consulted with? Maybe some of the name drops just so folks can go oh, I know that company. Oh, a bunch of so in sports. The Atlanta Falcons Caterpillar. Equipment Hyatt. Marriott Microsoft And then A bunch of things in construction book. I talk about Cactus feeders the third largest privately owned. Cattle feedlots cut in the country and the impact that it had with them, and so that's Kinda the concluded chapters. How these feed lot was able to recruit people react younger generations and then if them 'cause to get excited about their feeding children who are at risk sending home food for the weekend in their school meals. Now your book sticking points to get five generations working together in the twelve places they come apart. It seems to be indicative by the title that there are places where the things come apart. Maybe you could just focus on three on today's show where you see in the workplace where these five generations are are three, maybe three places where you often see things falling apart in the workplace. They come apart around work ethic. That's one of the biggest ones. I'm talking with a with a group of family owned businesses they can pass down one generation to the next and work ethic is one of the biggest ones and then communication style and the tools that people wanna use to communicate. And then lastly how we make decisions and who gets to make decisions and you know how long do you have to wait your turn? How long you have to sit at a card table at Thanksgiving before you get invited up to the Big Table where you actually get your opinion and can say something. You know you. Sound. Like you're pre-approved. You. You sound like you're looking twenty five. Okay. So you you had the wisdom like you've been on the planet for a while. So I don't even want to guess at how old you are but I wanNA bring this up you talking about work ethic do you see a lot of the young people that eighteen year old the the gluten free the nineteen year old the the the starbucks generation more the local I guess it's the local coffee shop generation. Do you see them as a general rule having an immoral intense work ethic than they're the grandparents or less intense or how how do you? What do you see about the work ethic of today's Young People Well I'm actually out visiting my grandkids I'm sitting in my son's house. He said to me about a year ago. But you guys still talking about millennials I got a mortgage, two kids and so what? Is that generalizations especially around millennials are tricky now because there's actually three life stages of millennials and that's one of the big changes in the sticking points in the second edition versus the first edition is now millennials are really three different life stages and you gotta you gotTa motivate and deal with the life stage aspect differently, he picked it up. Well, the oldest millennials turned forty next year, which means they're protected by age discrimination laws, and so when a person gets a mortgage, they tend to move into a they tend to move into a phase of life where they may not. They may not prefer a more intense work ethic but they've got a more intense that of bills and so they don't have quite as much freedom and flexibility as they did before and so it's really a life stage thing definitely traditionalist and boomers earn their identity especially males by.

That we're beginning to see is basically the logical end result from a massive decline in consumer consumption, right that all resulted from the pandemic, and of course, the economic shutdown that we all experienced in April as a result of the corona virus, so let me just put this into his easiest perspective as I can so picture this your favorite restaurant. It's owned by national restaurant coming and they had this shut down in March and April, and only now had they barely reopened right. They've been doing takeouts They've had to lay off staff furlough staff there are nowhere near the same numbers of people coming out to eat now that things have opened up a little bit. And, so they have continued to lay people off, and they've continued to unfortunately while furloughing some workers. They haven't been able to bring some of them back because they just don't have the business. That didn't help so of course now they're closing down completely as a result, vendors like kitchen, manufacturers do distributors or even the company that sells the paper for the receipts that go in the cash register or the company that makes the computer system that takes care of payments. It's a domino effect and you know one at layoff. In closure results in the next layoff enclosure in this will realistically and unfortunately likely go on for probably the next eighteen months maybe more depending on how bad the skits!.

"Welcome back on my own travel is joining us the show was originally recorded in now at the Ritz Carlton Kapalua number weeks ago but we're giving you a new insert for news based on what's going on out there with the corona virus its impact on travel not to mention its impact on your life what a wild crazy week it's been we need to talk about what else has been affected in this fifty million jobs at risk situation around the world hotels this is a real big and people don't really understand the hotel business of the hotel guys were in to see president trump earlier this week remember the airlines ask for a fifty billion dollar bailout hotels asked for eight two hundred and fifty billion dollar bailout think about this Marriott has one point four million rooms and they're gonna start shutting their hotels as you're hearing this they were he started doing it Hilton I'm actually recording this in New York where I'm hunkered down and the Hilton hotel here in New York the largest hotel in New York is shot many other hotels are gonna be going left and right but what people don't really understand about the hotel business if it's two fold in many cases we all know the brands of Hilton Hyatt Marriott intercontinental Windham well you know Weston all the other brands of merit as well but also you know best western what people don't realize is that with very very few exceptions and we're talking about exceedingly few exceptions these are management companies of the thousands of hotels that Marriott has it may actually have equity in about a dozen of them everything else is a management contract so what's really at risk here are not just Marriott employees who are going to get furloughed there's no doubt about it as these hotels close the underlying problems belong to the people who actually own the buildings who actually own the physical structures those owners don't really have a plan B. they're gonna shut those hotels but they still to maintain their debt service they have to pay their backs and they have to pay all those other services what happens to them how many hotels may not come back from this because we're not talking about a nine eleven situation with the world stop for about six days and then got back on its feet we're talking weeks and weeks and then additional weeks to get back on our feet to get back in trouble so when you take a look at Hilton Marriott and intercontinental and all those other hotels they got a huge problem and then of course there is no other suppliers to those hotels the people who deliver food to those hotels the people who are drivers either taxi drivers lift drivers uber drivers bus drivers at the at the resorts we also have to deal with the the the the amusement parks and theme parks the disease in the Universal Studios it's all shut down and this is unprecedented it really is on charted territory and the worst is yet to come and as one Sherman said to me and by the way I believe them one hotel chairman said to me there's no way we're gonna be able to discount our way out of this now will there be discounts down the road we'll talk about that inevitably there will be but for the current status of this particular period it's not even material people are gonna lose jobs they're gonna lose incomes at may fundamentally change the way we travel where we travel and how we travel after nine eleven many Americans were simply afraid of going over a body of water because of terrorism so they stay home a lot of drive trips happen everybody went by car cruise ships actually reap reposition their ships they could literally reposition their assets and brought them to the Mediterranean and the and the and the Pacific back to two U. S. ports some cities that even though they had Porcher Galveston and and and Baltimore and mobile Alabama and all the way up and down the east coast and that worked for awhile because people could literally drive for their ship and have a nice vacation without worrying about getting on a plane there's a true fear flying in those days well now it's different now it's way beyond that people were sheltering in place people are telecommuting they're not even they're not going to the office they're changing the way they work they're changing the way they live we're becoming isolated if you will and the only hope we can talk about this not only on this show but in subsequent shows the only hope is that our cultural DNA doesn't make us just want to travel it makes us want to need to travel and we don't stay were you know very well at home we're not good at that for long periods of time we're gonna want to get out and we don't want to get out with a vengeance hotels you know hopefully we'll be able to ramp up but it's going to be a lot slower return it with the travel industry prides itself on its resilience on its ability to bounce back from crises we've never seen one like this it's unprecedented and as I said earlier this is uncharted water that ran so don't expect fast answers but there is some silver lining to be discussed and I get to that in a second because we also need to discuss our cruise lines this was a different situation than after nine eleven with the cruise lines could simply reposition their ships and go to U. S. ports and and bounce back we're dealing with something else here and let's start with some basic numbers I need to give you some perspective on normal days or normal weeks there about three hundred and sixty five individual cruise ships sailing the oceans of the world and and doing so very well how many of those ships were actually adversely affected by the corona virus in a serious way about three that's less than one percent but the optics here were intense and they were negative everybody saw those pictures those visuals of the diamond princess being quarantined in Yokohama for two weeks we also the pictures of the other princess ships the grand princess being unable to dock anywhere until they finally let them go to Oakland as we're speaking there are cruise ships at sea right now with passengers that can't dock because no port wants to let them in it's the perception that we're all the other cruise ships are parked this is something we've never seen in the history of cruise ships an entire industry literally parked where are they well some of them were a docks some of them were down in in the in the in the Caribbean many of them were south of Freeport in the Bahamas members a number these cruise lines have their own special island so they can accommodate maybe one or two ships there they're sitting there with crews doing absolutely nothing or they're floating around it maybe two nuts this is gonna be the case for quite some time the differences between nine eleven is that when we get the green light to go back and travel guess what is it going to be to jump on a cruise ship the perception here is taking precedence over reality everybody that I talked to and I'm talking about experienced travelers have such a negative perception of cruise ships now not because they fear that the cruise ship is inherently unsafe or unhealthy they are worried that they're going to get on the ship will get on the take a cruise somebody will call off the ship will get quarantine they'll be stuck in a foreign country and be able to return to the United States the cruise lines have a U. jobs tool here to get over they have a huge hurdle of public confidence and once again just like the rest of the world the travel she may not bounce back that fast this time it's going to take time and when it takes time you know what we have to be patient it's so it's not gonna happen that quickly now the cruise lines and ask for a bailout as well that's another interesting issue because it might you could argue that the airlines deserve a bail out in the national interest because they are key to the supply chain of this economy they are key to the infrastructure of our travel transportation system they move the economy cruise ships are not an essential travel tool verification autumn their leisure item and do they really pay a lot of taxes most of them have ships registered in foreign countries this is gonna be one that's gonna get argued in Congress I guarantee it they may get it but they won't be without a lot of floor fights that when I can assure you so they've got their work cut out for them what about travel agents they're asking for seven point seven billion dollars to help with their liquidity because their agents have no income now the only conversations agents are having about cancellations and about rebooking nobody's booking anything new right now everybody's in a bunker so every aspect whether its restaurants resorts spas over drivers I just mention travel agents and everything else that's.

S. earlier in the year so all that creates a great buyers market for us if we want to leave the US because what would have been their return she's home now become our out down seats there and that's all good news for us and the best is about this is there's actually no indication that the airfare sales international routes are gonna be seasonal or limited they may extend to the entire year of twenty twenty that's pretty amazing and the you know when you think about it this doesn't happen very often you should definitely jump on the bandwagon and figure out when to go out speaking of jumping on the bandwagon twenty twenty is deathly going to be the year what for a thorough review of airline frequent flyer programs we have seriously reach the point of diminishing returns there are twenty three trillion on redeem miles out there you heard me correctly those are miles are eligible for redemption they're never gonna be redeemed and I'm talking to you what was the last time you were able to redeem your miles on a flight that you wanted where you want to go without staying up till four in the morning and begging it's not easy the airlines are going to a fair based system which means if even harder miles now little over demon the average rejection rates at most airlines are less than nine percent mafia loan sharks don't get that kind of return and at a certain point the loyalty programs are gonna revolt because what's the point of a loyalty program that doesn't reward you for your loyalty that would be the rhetorical question of two thousand nineteen it will be the rhetorical question of twenty twenty as well so listen for the space we're gonna be covering that a lot in the coming weeks because it affects all of you you're all sitting there I know you are you are all sitting there with miles you haven't been able to redeem and by the way I'm one of you on that it's as simple as that now some other good news and and it's one of those things that you know you don't think about but actually you do how many of you consider the actual health regimes of other U. S. cities or states in making your domestic travel decisions it where do you want to go where you can we can work out or eat healthier or exercise well might surprise you as to which US city is actually the healthiest many of you might guess cities like Portland Oregon or San Francisco guess what you're wrong the American college of sports medicine just published it's annual fitness index which studied thirty three separate health behaviors from chronic diseases to the city's infrastructure quality from air quality to the numbers that the citizens are even smoke and guess who comes in at number one this is a big surprise here it comes Arlington Virginia really yes what are your the top marks for low reported rates of chronic disease low repeats wrote a rates of smoking and high rates of regular exercise but don't despair Oregonians you came in like second or third and you know what interesting interesting study if you want to see more of it go right to our website at Peter Greenberg dot com now the other thing is this up.

"Thank you, Patrick cruciate that and David congratulations, saw another grocery store. Chain this time, the largest grocery store. Chain in America is putting the brakes on plastic bags. We've done it here in Austin, a lot of people love it. Lot of people don't the country's largest grocery store. Chain is doing away with plastic bags. Cincinnati based Kroger operates two thousand seven hundred seventy nine stores. In thirty five states they've announced the expected to announce it over the next couple of days. And they wanna phase at outward told by the year, twenty twenty-five. Why, why so long as it takes so long to phase it out because they bought a big supply of them. I guess maybe it kicks off the project at its. Q. F FC chain in Seattle, which is expected to be a plastic bag free by next year. Can you recycle plastic bags traditional ones? Yeah. We all grew up with. Yeah. I do all the time. Okay. That's what you put in the bathroom. She. Us to pick up the poop. When you walk your dog or the cat box. Yes. But then, hopefully that's going in the trash that I'm saying can you put you? In the recycling bin are they recyclable that I don't know that I think they're too thin. The thin ones are those ones that are a little bit thicker. Maybe they are what a plastic recycled bag. I guess you could grind it up and use it for other products because this to me is insane.

Some science behind this on how many reusable bags have been made since bags have been banned also thrown away, because everybody must have just I can't be the only one who has a mound, these reusable bags in their garage. Fifty or sixty of them only keeps its growing on its own at this point. Yeah. And some of them get kind of dirty too. Yeah. You never wash something like that. And what are people gonna throw those away or recycle those as well? It's a great question.

I was gonna say. Just not a reality. It's not a reality here at that doesn't make sense to anything that you're hearing. I know I know but they according to Lincoln the diminished appetite for buying homes. In other parts of the country has is, is really surprising for a lot of folks the appetite for buying comes even amid historical low unemployment with sales of so-called starter homes popular with first time buyers shrinking the fastest. Yeah. The Federal Reserve is holding up a briefing today on home ownership, trends, especially among the young people. I think that may be true.

But also, if you're a young person in your twenties. Your mobility is a great asset. Your ability to move across the country to take on that job offer. Yes, that's an asset. So maybe they're renting more than buying. I just can't get across the fact that you just said the Federal Reserve is figuring out what young people want.
