quarter of this year in terms of data, you should start to see it unwind. isinflation picks up, that what we expect to see. the big question is whether wages go with it. think we willen i have a different conversation within six months time. it could start to seek rate hikes come into focus. we need inflation to pick up and see wages go with it. echo we need to get the -- manus: we need to market perspective. i've prepared a very special graphic. have a look at this. it is the hawk and the dub spirit. what does it take to move the doves.-- and the what does it take to move the rates echo let's -- the rates? let's take a look at the graphic. flip-flop. he gives mark carney a good reputation. he is the most hawkish.

earlier after the lunch break. we see the shanghai composite above 3004 to 23 right now. -- 3004 to 23. it is interesting, because we heard from mark mobius, talking about these technology companies . this push to tech, consumer. that is going to be producing a more sustainable expansion into the economy. sure that iss not going to work in the equity markets. many of the stock by the way since for some of bite companies, a little too expensive. you look at the china index which is seen as a proxy, the times more incentive than what
we see in the shanghai composite. 41 times rejected earnings. -- 41 times projected earnings. valuations are surging again. day, .9% down. overall, we continue to see a sea of red. traders keeping ahead. sweden and new zealand meeting later on this week. new zealand, one of the few green markets here. up on 5%. they are close to a record here at -- to a record. alibaba, mention because earnings are going to be coming out later in the u.s. today. analysts seemed to be more optimistic about the company, saying things look to be turning around. maybe a bounce back from this
bottom. 33% since september 29. they saw the price plunged 60% below the ipo price. they are expecting revenue could be 27% growth. for mobileis push monetization. people are moving toward smartphones for shopping. that could be helping. as well as the expansion into rural areas. spend their office in london as well. opening officers in france and germany. manus, back to you. manus: yvonne, inc. you very much. -- thank you very much. breaking news about a be. caroline: this is been on the cards for a little while. a nationalized lender, a dutch lender here it it upgraded its
financial targets. bigger than expected. 10 to 13%. that is the measure of its overall capital rebuffed minutes. set to go back to the public hands. we understand the ipo is going to be held in amsterdam. in thed be started fourth quarter. they have been talking about the fact this deal was lined up for the fourth quarter. he himself, financial leader for the dutch. -- really is an area that could be a success story. the biggest ipo in years. since 2008 even. we understand according to reports that in september, they were out free marketing this
particular deal. we could see more share sales coming our way in europe. manus: caroline, thank you very much. still with us, and of u.k. rates strategy at ubs is john wraith. we have not finish the discussion around the u.k. and rates. markets have moved aggressively as to the first quarter of 2017. we have trimmed that back. still, let's have a look at this. this is the view of where we are on rates -- potential rate hikes. in market still not pricing a full rate hike by december of next year. is .65.oint it is still not there. i know we have is game every year. policymakers take a
little bit longer to move their forecasts. this is a real-time market as he goes with the data. this is gone a bit too far. domestic eta is holding up pretty well. we get gdp today. a little bit softer than the second quarter. still perfectly strong. the labor markets getting stronger. i rate hike should not be more than a year away frankly. there are these external issues. the market has made its mind up. circumstances will dictate whether it is become to defensive or not. medical how do you look at the u.k. rate market because you got u.k. rates trading over germany. is there more momentum? john: there could be. when talking about the 10 year spread. one of the drivers is what is
going on in the eurozone. after the ecb meeting recently, it seems clear they are likely to expand on the back end of this year. ellis thinks take a significant turn for the better. that raises expectation of heavy essential bank buying of european government bonds. that is what makes them underperform. the prospects of the u.k. are seemingly very detached from the eurozone. in the medium-term, the u.k. is exposed to what is going on. this spreads over the next year. it is going to narrow. we hope that it is because of european regeneration. clearly there are risks that the eurozone stays in trouble and that drags the u.k. down with it. ms. marcussen: you said -- manus: you say this comes with resets.
we've got a title on our bloomberg story that the bank of japan decision seems like a flip of a coin. let's take a look at the graphic. that is six analysts -- 36 analysts -- they got a lot of debt maturing. john: they are in a similar position as other central banks. we operate in a global environment of very low inflation. with u.s., u.k., that is offset by economic strength. when you look at some of these other countries, japan being another. andgot weak inflation questionable economic growth. that gets central banks very concerned. we've got to keep adding stimulus. we hope to see inflation turned a bit of a corner. they are fighting to try and simulate momentum. inus: i like the way you put
your report, a minor response from the bank of japan. , butll evoke one response it is the grandiose gestures that could move the market more substantially. have seen this before when the bank of japan has had to inject stimulus upon another. it's time they expand, the market tends to shrug it off. no sense of immunity that the market has seen it all before. when they have launched real big new programs and radical changes to the stimulus, you see the market respond. we seem to be getting toward the point where they need to do something more of a grand fashion.n a piecemeal manus: the other issue is ownership of the bond markets. you've got a colossal amount of the bond market in 2017. are you worried? there is an article. -- you'vech a banks
got central banks. these are highly distorted markets, aren't they? john: they don't know quite what we are going to be heading into is -- going into if rates are going up. find in hindsight they are going to early, they have run out of road. there started to raise rates, the recovery has slowed down and they do not have any ammunition to fight. on the side erring of caution. expectations whether you are looking at the markets or indications from consumers. expectations are very benign. there is no pressure on them to start raising rates. in the weaker economy, there is more pressure for them to get things off the ground. manus: you believe china is less responsible for
this disinflation. it has been part of the story. there are other issues. in our technological advances, free movement of labor, there is demographics. there is a range of issues. they are bearing down on inflation. think short-term, we do cpi are likely to take a swing higher. that might make things different from a policymaker perspective. there is a lot of disinflation. john, your good stay with me. draghi, stepping up stimulus. what does that rlly mean for the bond market? political issues in portugal. political dynamics in spain. negative bond yields. perspective from ubs. ♪
manus: it is 6:45 in london. these are the stories you need to know to set you up for the day. u.s. navy warships sailed within 12 miles of a man-made island built by china. the u.s. iso close, showing it doesn't recognize the island qualified for the 12 -- mile under international law. it could strain relations with the --nder just before just before the meeting schedule to be attended by obama and presidentxi jinping. the agreement would not eliminate the chance the government shutdown if lawmakers

this is sparking a geopolitical buildup. florence: not necessarily. manus: society beginning to tax land. society doing things i never thought imaginable. saudice: let's remember has more money coming into its coffers than it knows what to do. of sensationt around these things. ack in 2007, you cannot find hotel room in the gulf. people stampeded into the wrong stocks and bonds. now, it is the exact reverse. the fact of the matter is saudi arabia continues to have a debt to gdp ratio. this year, it will still be
under 7%. incumbent upon the imf to make the projections they make. would say they do not have a great record our projections. florence: the imf did the right -- meaning ifning nothing changes. au and i know in five years lot can change. figure five years ago. i am not as worried as some people are. the gulf state can live for several years on the source of revenue they're getting now. the prices might have bottomed out. who knows? manus: you would concur with that, john. from a global inflation point of
view is that oil will drop out. last year, we were hitting the bond market. where are we in the debate? john: it was in fourth quarter of 2014, that is what we are seeing come through in the headline. there are winners and losers in all of this. for all that is putting down the pressure on inflation. for all, it is changing the dynamics of foreign exchange reserves and the money within oil-producing economies in central banks. it is giving a boost to consumers. it is reducing the cost of transport and so on. we will see where we go from here. it is important from a bond market point of view as we -- point of view that we get stability. it is better for the bond market policymakers if the oil price
and all of these other inputs -- ilize and allow us manus: there are a few less banks -- maybe you will see some continuity. i want to move the agenda onto syria. you are based in the middle east. ont is the perspective bashir al-assad's meeting with putin? we still -- we spoke to the italian minister yesterday. he says you got to accept that russia is not part of discussing the whole settlement of a side. d. settlement of assa florence: the russians have been consistent on their perspective of syria from the beginning. recents changed is the

caused thinks to start to move. the manner in which the russians are escalating their intervention are causing things to move. let's hope they will move in the right direction. it is hard to say, but i think it is better for thanks to move. manus: florence, thank you very much. john, you're going to stay with us. a little bit of breaking news. let's get out to caroline. all t's. --altis. ofoline: this is the owner cable assets in europe. it is buying up cablevision. owner stretches his cord into the united states and buying cablevision. they are looking to sell 30% to $1of cablevision

quite forcefully after this month's meeting. it seems clear they will the -- they will be delivering some stimulus in december. ofy will make some sort acknowledgment that the kiwi is likely to go on beyond that by three to six months. manus: the next wave of qe comes at a very difficult moment in time. are you worried about the availability? john: not yet. what is interesting is the ecb is very fixed on its cpi mandate to keep it close to 2%. it is a long way. it is not going to get back up there in the next year or two. the underlying economic data is picking up quite materially.
bp quarterlyg the results across the bloomberg terminal. if you are a shareholder at $.10 a share, let's get to caroline. the market expected to little. is it because of the average price of oil at just $50 for the third quarter. is that my expectations were so low? the third quarter adjusted profit was well ahead the estimate of 1.26 billion dollars. love a quarterly dividend of some $10 at the moment. shy ofoks a little estimates. overall production, 2.2 4 million barrels per day. that too seems to be shy up

european space? the data has been picking up in europe. it has been missed by investors. has been a lot of eurozone concern. the ecb is worried about missing their inflation target. they engaged in a lot of stimulus and will likely announce more. that is the backdrop for us. we think that the likes of portugal for example, will see their bonds outperform against the core market. this is money coming in from central bank stimulus. is a: as you said, that ways off qe. when you look at some of the spread markets, you got u.s. treasuries, we touched on that a little bit earlier.

on the longer term it is up to wear andke great eye captured the new users coming into the market. the demographic trend is in our favor. we need to be sure that as more people come into the markets that we are ready for them. manus: you mentioned the demographics that you are ready for. you are doing double digit growth. is that sustainable? to sustain that double-digit performance, what does that do to pricing? these are record levels of growth. i think to declare them as the be correct.t what is driving our business might now is not only great but ourcollections, ability to work with customers on their business models.
we are able to work with entrepreneurs. mentioned areyou some of the first that have adopted this sales program. it is driving the business. it is pricing independent. manus: even got one billion euros and counting. you said you don't need to do your growth targets. that leads me to a straightforward presumption. you're going to do a shareholder by back. these guys should be doing a share buyback. is that what you are going to do? we don't need to do mma because to reach our goal of the next 10 years, we need to grow another 7%.
at our track record, we are more or less at that record right now. i believe we can get to their without the need for an acquisition. of course, it gets harder and harder as you get bigger. euros inne billion cash and our dead position is very good. from the outside we look ready to pounce on the acquisition front. we can afford to do that judiciously. it is not really a prep for a buyback. we are looking at options. we don't have a gun at our head for acquisitions. if we had good deals and good options, we would take them. ands: where the good deals options? are they in china? there must be a bit of value there. >> all the time in emergent markets we make moves that don't make the headlines because we
are working wholesale and retail. , may beat acquisitions a small change that could give presence a real estate or that could allow us to pave the way for some of our small businesses. for the rest, you will have to wait. manus: i will be patient. but what i am getting impatient for is google glasses. please give me an update on google glass. have already transformed my life. i have your products. how are you going to transform my life? will it be in the first quarter of 2016 with google glass? we are working more than one project.
i'm a big believer in wearable. i have seen various prototypes. i know what you can do with a device, when it can interact with sound and a vision. i think of wearables are going to be a big thing. portable going to arable going toerabl be about sound and music? >> it is definitely going to have sound. and we arebrands, working with intel. reveal that in january. we are racing to get it out before the olympics. that is probably the first truly functional wearable from us
that you will see. i have seen some products that are very exciting. we might just send you one when we have it ready. manus: i don't want you to just send me one. i want to exclusive first look tech comingearable from luxottica. i am going to hold you to that. what is your favorite pair of glasses? >> i am wearing oakley's at the moment. they are a great fit. manus: i concur with you on that. it will give the marketing director a quick call. i am an oakley fan as well. it is great to have you this morning. sunglasses to oil, it is a bit of a transition. could crude oil hit $20 a barrel?
the scenario has been outlined and it is possible, yes. >> to understand the scenario when we come up with $20 a barrel, it is based upon the idea of operational stress. that is very unique to energy markets. what do i mean by that? is cannot happen in metals. when you produce aluminum, you can store it outside the smelter easily. of the aluminum is one easiest things in the world. all you need is a parking lot, chain link fence, a guard dog. you are good. you never breached storage capacity. in contrast, think about a barrel of oil. cannotce the oil, but put it outside the well. it has to go inside the pipeline, to the storage facility. if you breach the storage tank, you have anothe no other option but to reduce the price.
you would have to get down to $20 a barrel to create a type of correction. manus: you heard it from goldman sachs first. bp was one of those. big beat,saw a despite a drop in the third quarter. joined i our headmanned for commodities. to the refining business. gasoline and diesel seem to have done very well. we expect to see one point $3 billion. they came up at $1.8 billion. manus: when you look at what else they said. worldhard to live in a with $60 oil.
>> absolutely. how do we make the business work in 2017 and how do we keep paying dividends? that is what all of the ceo majors of oil companies are saying. let's focus in on this part. this is what we call bq. that is where we take all of the majors and we do some analytics. you have bp doing 6%. ofn't we at the trough here what is driving that disparity. >> shell has the big issue of the big merger with bg. they have really suffered. bp is somewhere in the middle. he will see a sharp rebound at the open today. manus: thank you very much.
the government says it plans to sell 30% of abn. worth $70ay be million. a boy has been arrested. this was a 15-year-old arrested for the talktalk hack attack. in on the asian and european markets ahead of the ed's two day meeting. caroline: we'll got a shut sinking. if you look at the japanese stocks, we have some of the worst performances. the federal reserve meeting kicks off today. .hat is cause for some concern
we don't know if we will get outline or indications of the trajectory of u.s. interest rates. nearfeel we will see rates 0%. we have another central bank in the mix, the bank of japan. they meet this week as well. there is some speculation that we will not see any adding to stimulus from them. at the moment, we have 16 out of 36 analysts thinking that we will see the bank of japan boost stimulus. many want to see more stimulus to get us through this slowing of global growth. yen is rising. the dollar yen is falling. just want to reach out for slightly safer assets this morning. that theme will carry to europe.
are off by 3/10 of 1%. that there is a slight pause in the rally. the s&p 500 was at a nine week high. it slipped down from that yesterday. oil companies started to deteriorate ahead of some have the earnings. crude is off this morning. remain above to $50 at the moment. managed to beat analyst estimates. everyone was so negative about where the oil prices have been, averaging about $50. many of the oil majors will see about a 40% drop in their profit, as ep did.
all gearing up for some of the big tech giants later. aswill see how they perform well. back to you. up for au are gearing slightly lower opening. one of the larger culprits is the asf. it does not expect things to get better anytime soon. isn't that the message coming through here, hans? they are talking about a murky outlook from china. theirre slashing euro-dollar target. iss: the word they are using slight. they expect a slight decrease in earnings and overall revenues. they blamed the slowdown in china and brazil, as well as the decline in oil prices. you just take a look at the
decline in oil prices and what that has done to their pricing. that is down the percent for the year. -- that is down 8% for the year. eurose in at 17.4 billion or the quarter, almost a 5% decrease. mess there. your is what the ceo had to say in a statement. >> we experienced a pronounced summer lull. inor markets like brazil are recession. they face lower growth rates, such as china. felt 1.6%.item manus, it is not necessarily going to get better. in part because of that asset's swap. they got rid of some oil transfer services.
revenues from that will be lower because of the price of oil. they say in the fourth quarter, things are not necessarily going to get better. earlier last week the company did pledge or whatnot the redundancies at their headquarters in west germany. this is a massive company. it gives you a great take on overall what the outlook is. there will not be job cuts there. they do have 113,000 global employees. they have 380 production sites worldwide. in some ways, they are continuing to invest in germany, but they do expect lower revenues and earnings. manus: thank you very much for wrapping up everything with the basf. here to break down the numbers for the third-quarter profit is
sam. let's make it simple. sam: most of the pressure was from hong kong. each of suffering in those. q2 was zero and this quarter is down 2%. it was meant to be a good few years. a good one.it is people are getting older and the population is aging, generally. i know for a fact that i need glasses to read. demographics are behind it, but the business is tough.
asia and emerging markets have a serious pressure on them. the $390 million they are going to pay for the u.s. kick back case. what are the details? >> at the moment they are sensitive to the phrase specialized pharmaceuticals. may or may not have accounting issues. this is a long-standing issue. they have been getting kids kickbacks and the have settled it. this will hopefully be behind them. manus: always great to get an update from you.
we will welcome the president and portfolio manager at edge asset manager. it is great to have you with us. how do you look at pharma? >> we do have exposure to big pharma. in have to be very cautious this space and investors have to do their homework and look at the fundamentals. a lot of these big multinationals have been impacted by the slowing global growth. finding the companies that can maneuver through that environment is critical for investors. articlehere is a great that only a ninja would make money. i think that is an apt way to put it.
we have seen quite a bit of volatility in moves. byn stocks drop, they drop 10%. >> absolutely, there is more volatility. it has been a wild ride since entering that period. more volatility moving forward as the world economies are slowing down and oil prices are under pressure. the fed is also contemplating their first move in interest rates. go in and find the companies that can maneuver through this environment. pullbacks are actually a buying opportunity for those companies that can rebound. manus: last week we saw a
phenomenal turnaround. microsoft added $9 billion. added $90 billion to the value of equities. how do you look at tech between the new and the old? who has the proposition correct? >> microsoft is our neighbor in seattle. maneuver and move with fundamentals with these companies. are onour emphasises based on dividends. a couple years ago apple instigated their new dividends. are characteristics of what we believe to be a strong company.
if they can have a strong dividend and go after shareholders over time. we have an article that states payouts in u.s. equities will rise by 5%. this will be the smallest payout we have seen since 2010. are we building up the ability to really maintain these dividend payouts when we see such concern about growth? that is the balancing act. >> it is still not every company. you have to do your homework and the fundamentals. for edge, finding these companies and the small to midsize portfolio, many of the companies have raised their dividend over the past 12 months. yes, there is pressure, especially in the large multinationals because of the small growth environment, that there are a lot of small and
midsize companies that can still pay and grow their dividend and business. those are the companies we are focused on and in the u.s. there is still a mountain of cash sitting on balance sheets. we do believe that is coming back to shareholders, but not across the board. we see some huge deals going on. will it be a shareholder return? >> there will definitely be mma activity. in the small to mid for folio, where we focus on these quality companies, we see acquisitions there. there are normally one or two a year. the big companies want to buy. that is an opportunity as well in these types of strategies. manus: stay with me. we have more to get through. jill, the president at edge
international law. this could put a strain on u.s. relations with china. the white house and top lawmakers from both the u.s. parties reached a punitive deal. said the both parties accord will extend to both parties. it to include a two year deal on spending. eliminate the chance for a government shutdown. ministersh prime called for a general election for december 20. despite unrest within his party, best said he is the candidate for the job. ago, the start of
european trading began. this is what we see at the moment in terms of equity markets. we are signaling a down day. plenty of bp to be looking at. the dax is down by 3/10 of 1%. i will show you one german stock that will be tugging fed lower this morning. is currently gone down about 2%. why? we see they cut their four year target. environment has clouded over emerging markets. especially in china.
sales are down 5% and earnings are down 10%. prices fall, getting into the fact that many of their clients want to see lower prices for chemicals. this is a nice segue into what i am talking about next. just outperform the market. this is important because it is the first of the five majors we will hear from for the rest of the week. excon will follow. bp beat its forecast. 40%, but many thought it would be worse. they are about 600 million pounds better than what was expected in terms of overall profitability. is doingtream area particularly well. that is the refining area and
the trading area. lastly, i want to show you one stock that is set to move. contractor, this is a company struggling. lenders are trying not to break the rules on any of their debt so they don't go into default. they have a potential delay in one of their key contracts. manus: thank you. it will be a busy trading day. managementdge asset is still with us. the toss up, at
how would you look at oil in the portfolios? income and a reasonable dividend and growing dividend are critical for edge and what we look for and the quality of the companies we are investing and. in the oil space it is interesting because you look at the height dividends and not all of those are sustainable. we want to see the commitment and capacity for companies to pay the dividend. up and rvave pulled function. the relative value function. it gives you a lot of information. cap, it go market through percentage changes and revenues. on the right-hand side you can see dividend. do to protect the
dividend of 7%? you have your own major reporting at the end of the week. jill: there are other ways to play this space other than these big oil companies. talked about the refining business doing well. in that the u.s. there are small to medium-sized refiners that are not as impacted by th. they can still make money in this space. there are still opportunities for refiners that can have again, the capacity to pay a good dividend over time. manus: are you worried about the dollar? is that a concern? : absolutely, it is
impacting big full a national companies. we do look at the big companies in our portfolios as well, but that small to medium sized space center dot as exposed to overseas growth, there are opportunities there. manus: it is great to get your perspective in pursuit of the income. jill, president and portfolio manager of edge asset management. let's check in with jon ferro.
