or the sport such that people will understand this is politics as it is in any other form and has nothing to do with the play on the pitch? >> i will take those into parts. i think the fifa brand has been undergoing gradual damage with allegations have materialized. but from an international viewpoint, in terms of what goes on, interest is stronger than ever, particularly the u.s. where you look at adjusted television ratings, looking at world1% on the overall coming to power and factoring in the other countries, japan and china, everyone will be voting with their pocketbooks. it is extremely strong, stronger than ever. i think it will take in my opinion a great leader to fix
the brand and will not be fixed for quite some time. mark: my colleague just alluded to talk that they should move the location from qatar. why, and is that likely? is likely.think that that is getting into world economic and political issues i would not consider to be my area of expertise. i do not think it is likely. i do not think we need any more international incident. sponsors are concerned. coke is concerned in particular. money talks. so let's see what the sponsors do and say moving forward. talk is cheap. mark: you have a fascinating story. it is at bloomberg.com about a bank with links to the scandal. tell us about delta national bank and trust. national bank and trust

mark: welcome back to the bloomberg market day. straight to a check of the markets. julie hyman is standing by. julie: we have had stocks bouncing around a little bit. we had economic data this morning, jobs report. i is and services report. the big report friday. the ecb as well. not changing great but a lot of commentary coming from mario draghi. the s&p gain the smallest of the three major averages. also notable the move in the fonts market with yields on the 10 year rising to the highest since november. 2.36%. it has been quite a move we have seen in the markets.
something else mario draghi talked about is the volatility in the market. he said it is here to stay. some investors are pointing out that yes, we are seeing volatility in the bond market but not this market. i have on the top in the orange line the move index. the fix, measure of volatility in stocks. 27% for the year to date. the fix down about the same amounts. yes we are seeing the enormous font volatility. we have not seen it happen in the stock market. which of bank chief international economist. that is cause for concern for equity investors. maybe it could be a signal when they finally get clued in to we will see the raise rates that we will see a big uptick and volatility and could be a problem. also wanted to check and what we are seeing in the corporate bond
market. this tracks investment grade corporate font. the move we have seen over the past several sessions is even more dramatic. the three-day selloff the worst since june 2014. i have a chart going back to the beginning of last year. you can see the three-day selloff we have had. for since june of 2013. what happened? the so-called taper tantrum when investors started to get more concerned rates for going to go of. of course they did not. bank of america now says we are going to likely see more pain in the investment grade corporate market as we do have not a repeat of the taper tantrum, perhaps something similar but the velocity of the move of the treasury -- treasure market over the next several weeks. the top stories

that is a look at the top stories we're following at this hour. tonight 8:00 new york times, chicago blackhawks play the tampa bay lightning's. fans of the rangers are still licking their wins. although the national hockey league does not play favorites, it would have been better for the league if the rangers were in the finals. >> it always helps to have one of the original six teams in the stanley cup finals. when that has happened, ratings have gone up. tworangers had one, expansion teams would have met in the finals. boostedt would have ratings. the most recent time was 2013 when chicago played boston in a six-game series that averaged 5.7 5 million viewers. new york is the largest media market in the u.s.. chicago number three.
tampa st. petersburg number 13. new york also the biggest city in the u.s. with the most and - - fans. fans like to dislike. that makes the matchup of big draw. what it help hockey bottom line to help other -- to have the rangers in the finals? yes. the nhl problem cannot be signed -- solved with one stellar series. hockey has devoted fans, just not as many as football, baseball, basketball. pastost watch game in the four decades was 2011. game seven of the boston bruins versus vancouver. just over 8.5 million viewers. last season at game on average -- through double that.
the real issue is revenue. major league baseball made about $9 billion. the nhl around 3 billion. mark: money talks year. money definitely talks. you have a very core group of loyal hockey fans, present company included. , the most read stories of the day, john paulson giving 400 million to harvard's engineering will come the biggest donation that college has ever seen. we are talking about one of the largest guess in american education history. scarlet: not too long ago stephen schwarzman gave 100 million dollars to you for a new student center. harvard and yale do not exactly need the money. and harvard's case, $37 billion endowment.
so it is doing just fine. to some extent you wonder whether all of the money going into the state of the art facility means they will have to charge higher tuition. mark: mr. paulson issued a statement to say he hopes this gift will make the school at 21st century engineering leader. scarlet: i have a feeling would've been that way without his it. we will talk about that and talk about the many facets of higher education overall. you and i will this us how companies like anthem are now offering free college education is a park to employees. starbucks started it. what is in it for the company's? in a scarlet fu, three you few minutes. coming up, the days after enron, the government try to improve the accuracy of corporate earnings forecast, but appears
mark: welcome back to the bloomberg market day. i am mark crumpton in new york. government action like the sarbanes-oxley act were supposed to improve the accuracy of poor burnings estimates. it turns out corporate earnings 2%ecast have actually gotten less accurate from 2000-2013 according to a new study to be published in a financial analyst journal. joining me now, josie ohley. the study shows analysts are unwilling or unable to accurately predict earnings. why not yet found >? >> the company themselves are
not getting very accurate guidance. the analysts are only doing what they can with what they are given. there is also the idea that right after the measures were passed in 2003, people were on their best behavior. 2004 and 2005 when the microscope was on them. once they felt it had shifted, they went back to their old ways. quality started to suffer. we've seen a decline in accuracy. the test used in the study, they did not determine a cause, but the authors speculate on what is going on. run anything to show why this has been, but they inferred it has been starting with the companies and the quality of information they are giving to the analyst. i think they were planning on doing more of that in the future. have concluded the
analyst forecasts are less accurate than they were before the measure is passed. it sounds like what we're talking about is due diligence, at least on the company's part. is there anything that can compel companies to release more detailed reports? >> i think one of the big issues is the lack of clarity. they have set the bar low, so it is an easy hurdle to jump over before they denounce earnings -- announce earnings. that may play into the idea they are not getting as good of information because maybe they notwithholding or they are being as transparent as they should be. it is ironic because that was the whole point of sarbanes-oxley to solidify criteria for financial and accounting data. mark: what impact is this having on the market? >> it is basically just resulting in analyst throwing
darts at a dart board. you cannot really trust exactly of theey are saying all time. their accuracy has gotten worse and more difficult to look at analysts and say i think i know what is going on with the company by reading the research. mark: good to see you. thank you. coming up in the next half hour of bloomberg market day, the federal reserve releases the latest beige book. we will tell you what it says. a look at the markets, the dow, s&p and nasdaq are all trending higher on this wednesday. ♪ ♪
