within the hour. >> it has become clear to me that this prolonged leadership turmoil would do irreparable harm to the institution. this morning, i informed my colleagues that i would resign from the speakership and resign from the congress at the end of october. brendan: joining us now on the phone is john heilemann. and phil mattingly. let's start with you. the speakers as he woke up this morning, preyed on it, went to a diner, decided today was the day. is there anything else going on today that would have pushed him? he hadspeaker said decided he was near resigning, ready to resign around last year. cancers defeat and
decided he needed to stick around for the sake of the party. cantor's the feet. -- defeat. there are questions looming before his chamber of congress which relate to the potential government shutdown, the debates over trying to defund planned parenthood, and ugly fight over the course of the next week. resulted inht have a leadership challenge to him, one that he could've lost. he's being honest when he says he did this to try to avoid all of that. he did this for the sake of the republican party. and his political prospects -- another government shutdown would hurt the party. is in thethat long-term interest of the party. as farhat does this mean
as the potential for a government shutdown? mean we areignation more or less likely to see that happen? lawmakers since this announcement was made and they are certain it is off the table right now. this allows john boehner to go ahead and take the bullet he knew he would have to take without having to worry about the leadership challenge. he will put up a bill to defund planned parenthood and resort to a clean funding bill that will pass and president obama will sign it into law. or threat of an overflow him losing his bigger ship no longer on the table. he is doing this for the right reasons. they will get behind him. the white house relationship with john boehner has been one that has always been contentious.
respect. one based on there's wariness about who will replace him. the president addressed the speaker. >> john boehner is a good man. he is a patriot, he cares deeply , the institution in which he served for a long time, he cares about his constituents and he cares about america. oppositeupper ideologically. both speaker boehner and president obama felt like they could talk to one another. there was always a line of communication. that is leaving now and that will cause some concern. there was cheering at the conservative the voter rally summit this morning when marco rubio announced a john boehner was resigning. what does that say to you about the possibility of a
nontraditional choice for a new speaker? john: there probably are not the votes for a far right tea party type of speaker of the house. the reaction is incredibly important and telling. the reactions has more about the state of the republican party than the resignation itself. the republican party right now is in disarray. in the congressional level, in terms of presidential nominating process -- and there is a large contingent who do not like the establishment. mark: let's get more perspective. let's bring in luke messer of indiana. he joins us now from washington. let's go back to phil mattingly. john heilemann was saying about what is going on, this
fractionalization within the republican party, the split from the far right and the split in the center. speaker boehner had problems trying to get that caucus together. will it be easier for a kevin mccarthy to bring that caucus in with the rest of the gop? phil: the crucial components of that dynamic remain the same. there is a democrat in the white house and the senate republicans who took control during the have 60 and 2014 do not votes, they cannot get through a filibuster. , kevin the speaker is mccarthy has started to move far the oddss by on favorite -- just because he is in the speaker's chair does not mean that those dynamics shift at all.
there are lawmakers who will vote against anything considered pragmatic or a compromise. whoever the next speaker is will have to compromise with the white house to move anything forward. one of the things you've heard from conservatives right now, if it is kevin mccarthy, they feel like they have a better relationship with them. the basic facts on the ground, they do not shift. things are not getting any easier. the press conference this afternoon with john boehner was as candid and emotional as we have come to expect from him. you've known him for a long time. when you look back, does it make sense -- john: it has.

two groups who have absolute control. they are very much family companies. andsee that more with ford volkswagen than with toyota. it is delicate. record.ad a great track that is well thought of by the family. slogan one read the the truth in german engineering. we think of these consumer cars -- 5 million cars were affected. are parts of the vw group unaffected by this? >> presumably, the large trucks

to a bear market. at risk is whether the s&p 500 rebounds from a three-week low. we are right at that low. if you come inside the terminal, i want to pull of a chart, the msci all-country world index. it includes developed and emerging markets. since the fomc announcement last thursday, global stocks have been in a funk. they fail every day after that last thursday. aday, they have come back up little bit. janet yellen pose a speech last night was a catalyst for the rebound today could the prospect of an interest rate increase before your-end is giving the dollar a boost. the dollar is strengthening versus the euro and the yen. as for treasuries and other safe havens, like gold, little need to hide out there in treasuries. therefore, you have yields higher. the 10-year at 2.16%. all right, moving on. u.s. stocks trimming gains.

they kind of put us back a week "notuesday, before the announcement and glut announcement of the fed. we are kind of back to that same place. are they going to raise rates? she took it off the table, and now she put it back on the table before year-end. it gives the uncertainty a life. i am not sure at this point if there is anything the fed can or cannot do that is really going to end this market swim. -- this market swoom. it has to flash some of its own demons to find benefiting to take off. clear to me that the fed will probably wait until they are forced to raise interest rates, either by about economic report or a market move. aboutt: let's talk underlying fundamentals. earning season begins an artist -- and ernest the second week of october.
estimates exclude energy results. companies are publishing their earnings, excluding the foreign exchange of fact. what do you think is the quality of revenue and profit? i think the earnings cycle, the biggest thing to remember at this point, i think the earnings cycle is quite mature in this country. it is aging rapidly. profit margins are near all-time record highs and are coming down a little bit under some majors. for the year, i think earnings are going to grow much more slowly going forward in this recovery van they have in the past. the reason is because we have reached full employmentand the united states. if sales do not pick up and earnings remain kind of slug is -- kind of sluggish, going in line with sluggish sales, but if they do pick up, that i think we will create some cost push and pressures and margin erosion's that might also keep earnings relatively slow relative to even
better sales results. i do not think you should expect that our earnings are going to grow much faster or even as fast . scarlet: i think of an example at caterpillar, which came out with a restructuring announcement yesterday. will we see other companies follow their lead in terms of throwing in the towel on 2016? globale longer the slowdown persists, you might start to see that. i think we are very close to seeing a bounce in global growth , not only here in the u.s. but across the globe. i think we have a lot of stimulus we have dumped on the global system over the last year in the form of a huge decline in commodity prices, particularly energy costs, followed up with a big decline in sovereign bond yields across the globe. most countries outside the unitedtates have enjoyed currency weakness. you take that combination with about eight year lag, which we
are coming into, i think there will be a bounce in europe, japan, china -- you take that, nation with about year lag. that might still early announcements from ceo was a pessimistic on the global outlook. maybe by year-end, if we get a bounce going into next year, you will see a better commentary from ceo's. brendan: one of the things janet yellen emphasized on friday is that once the committee is ready to move, they will be taking a shallow, but consistent, pat. why not just do a beat up to see what happens and then readjust? jim: i think they should have a long time ago. one of the things i've look at is, why everyone is a so scared that if the fed starts, the worst thing that could happen is that they backtrack. i do not think it is such a big deal. they raise rates in the come out and say we are going to pause. or because things have changed a little bit, we're going to back off a quarter. i do not see that as a disaster.
they should get off the dime. i think they will light-year-end, which is a good thing. ultimately, it might be that the economy dictates the fed's move. if we get a bad wage number over the next couple months or oil that jumps above the dollars and sustains and surprises market participants, we can force the fed to raise rates, regardless of what they think. more importantly, i think the economy will take over control monetary policy soon. scarlet: we will see when that happens. thank you to jim paulsen, joining us from minneapolis, minnesota. stories making headlines -- the u.s. and china announce an agreement today on broad anti-hacking principles aimed at solving the theft of corporate trade secrets, the resolving oneards of the biggest disputes between the jib upcountry spirit mr. obama offered details during a joint news conference. president obama: i can announce that our two but countries

this today for the right reasons. and you know what? the right things will happen as a result. scarlet: and emotional john boehner there. the question is, who will be his successor? among those considered him a congressman handsomely, chairman of the house financial services committee. joining as is republican congressman luke messer of indiana, who sits on the house budget committee. in washington, our very own phil mattingly. want to start with the reaction to what was the response from democrats? marco rubio had an interesting take you what about the democratic establishment? phil: it was split. democrats understand on the political side of things that republicans in disarray or that storyline is good for them. it is good in the next election and in positioning on policy issues. the one thing they knew about john boehner, and this goes from the white house to nancy pelosi's office, is when they picked up the phone and had to
give him a call, there was always an open line. they knew that john boehner was somebody he -- they could work with. ideological polar opposites, but he would always come to the table and be a straight shooter. as the president said today, he would tell him what was what no matter what. there is concern among democrats that we do not know what is coming next and we do not know what that means. not necessarily for the short-term funding of the government. all the republicans i have talked to have said that is a sure thing, there will not be a government shutdown. that in december, there will be a debtghts, including ceiling fight. that is what democrats are concerned with. vertigo luke messer is joining us from the capital. congressman, how many of your colleagues called you this morning asking for support in the upcoming leadership election? congressman messer: several people are looking at it. this is something we will have to do and we will have to come together. today is a day when the american
'sople saw why so many of john colleagues love him. i believe he did the right thing for the institution by stepping aside today. way to: the best describe john boehner is he was really the leader of the " getting things accomplished" caucus within the republican party. how strong is that caucus now? think itan messer: i is still very strong. he has not given our caucus and opportunity to come together. we need to seize it. we still have president obama and the white house and a minority incratic the senate. our ability to make a difference on conservative principles depends on us to come together. we need to do that. scarlet: phil mattingly, a lot of people say the departure illustrates the extent to which moderate republicans is an endangered species in washington. for those who belong to the " hitting it done" caucus, will they be forced to move to the
extreme right to get things done? that therenot know aren't whole lot of "moderate" republicans left in the house, just as there are not a lot of moderate democrats left in the house either. i think with the congressman says is the key point. what john boehner's message was in his private meeting with lawmakers today was that now is the time to reconcile our differences, time to come together. he will stick around for a month and serve as a bridge to the next leader. he will try to get has republicans an opportunity to come together and figure out a coherent path forward. that is what he believes is his biggest lasting legacy piece will be. what is interesting is not how the factions of the republican party breakdown, but how those 35 to 40 conservatives, the far right that have given john boehner so many problems, will actually come into line with whoever the next leader is. that is the big question.
if john boehner has his way, everybody will be in line going forward. but i think there is not a lot of certainty around that, no matter who the leader is. brendan: this morning, marco rubio was speaking to the values summit when the news broke out. he got a standing ovation for the news. what does that say to you about the fractures in your party? a party,an messer: as we have to do better. bottom line, many in our party are frustrated with washington. bottom line, the reasons for that are many, including the fact that i described a moment ago, that we have a democratic president and democratic minority in the senate that can change the process. ultimately, they want to see us fight hard and deliver results. that will not be easy. john boehner had a hard job. not getting any easier now. if we have -- if we make a difference, we have to do it together. brendan:nk you --
thank you.

i-shares biotech etf. the idb has the drifting lower throughout the day. the s&p 500 was holding up well until around 2:15, when it broke down and started gaining steam to the downside. pharmaceutical stocks are some of the worst performers in the s&p 500 today. it was biotech, but it is also big cap pharma. all of this, a cell of continuing since hillary clinton tweeted a few days ago that she was looking into capping pharmaceutical prices. it is interesting that the selling in that group has not abated. it has continued pretty much ever since then. scarlet: six straight days lower for the soccer shares. looking at the dow, the three health care-related companies are lower. what is to begin higher question mark julie: almost single-handedly nike. nike is still the best performer
in the dow at best performer in the s&p 500 after its earnings beat estimates to they had a better tax rate and raised prices. they benefited from strong demand in china. i should also mention financials. that is why the s&p 500 is not down further. the financials have been the strongest group to -- consistently throughout the day today. brendan: still ahead, google is once again under u.s. antitrust scrutiny. why officials think the tech giant stifled competitors' access to the android mobile operating system. ♪

person who ran the division that created that market dominance. what do we know about him know about him now that he is injured at google? the real question is about the creation of android and the monopoly they have over search. the question is how they use it to grow other businesses and if they unfairly keep other companies from competing. it is interesting that this company, google, the biggest wake offormed in the the microsoft-netscape antitrust trial, and it has found itself fighting and and try that antitrust complaint -- think of their timeline, all the things that have been dealing with for so many years. this is just the latest of so many. the eu launched an investigation in late 2010. june of 2011, the ftc has their own investigation just over search results on the disc top -- on the desktop. the other investigations

money supply back to more historic levels. the fed has done a lot of thought with the reverse program and deposit rates. i think they have the tools, but until they do i do think they are produced -- prudent to pursue what they are doing. scarlet: much more coming up on the bloomberg market day. we will be discussing the iphone and what differences it holds from previous iterations of the expectation for sales opening weekend. ♪

famously expensive. beyond that the court -- cost of shorting could be up to 10%. when everyone wanted to shorting two months ago, it was a headwind in this fund. it is a little cheaper because it is not as red hot, convicted cross -- but they can price this based on how sharp the shares are too short. scarlet: last question, goldman sachs lost in etf this week is doing very well. has: the goldman sachs etf $57 million and he wants it on the market for $48 million. it is interesting, they hardly legendary bank. it'll be interesting to see if they can do well. they undercut on price. they pulled the vanguard in terms of coming in way cheaper.
