this is really wishful thinking. much ado about nothing. i suspect there is a big split within the community -- the committee. manus: a very good day to you. -- this is one of the interesting facts. i read a piece overnight and he is quite impressed by the unity that we have seen, that there is only one dissenter. janet yellen has done quite a good job bringing the cabal together. it together, but we have heard quite a lot from both sides. that she is not
with moving. we have seen lacquer, but there are others. there is a split in some mice. only one person has voted against her, but the moment they go, my suspicion, we may well see three people voting against. you might see three people going against as well. janet has to decide, which group is she going to be with? there are strong voices on both sides. we have to really watch the data. we would like to go with following the data. every single time, the data has not been strong enough to go. they want to start, but that is what they have been saying for a long time. anna: they want to follow the domestic data, but they have been distracted by the international situation. referencedropped that

of all of the other central raised their006 next move was to go back again. that concern.se we just heard from china. china says they need 6.53%. in terms of growth. is the world really in such a tortured place that the fed, their hands are tied? it really does tie their hands. danny: let's add another thing to that. there is no inflation. despite the fact that there are concerns about what has happened to oil, we know that pce in
america, excluding food and energy, has continued to fall. yes, growth around the world is very anemic at best. there is no inflation. there is no inflation. 17 countries in europe that are in deflation. the scale of this deflationary shock is major. they are also fighting against fiscal policy around the world. we have seen all of these moves in the u k. central banks are fighting against this inflationary shock around the world -- this disinflationary shock around the world. anna: thank you very much for joining us. professor of economics at dartmouth speaking to us from new hampshire.

domesticgth and the economy, there is enough for them to do that. this is the most talked about hike. we have been talking about it since may of 2013. the strength is there for them to do it. they removed the concerns they had about the international weakness. that is gone. they are focusing on the domestic economy. --a: we had an introducing interesting conversation with danny blanchflower. there was only one dissenter this time around. do you think it will be a unified fed in december? andrew: that is what yellen wants. to the extent there is this --ty, the other option

to find it. surprised by the muted reaction in the bond market yesterday. is the door isng hike, verye fed to passively. they decided to leave the door open yesterday. what is happening is the business cycle is alive and it is reasonably mature. we are talking about a hike coming into the business cycle when we are already over the halfway mark. inflation is nonexistent. it might be slowing the business cycle down. manus: they do not price in
another hike. the market is not pricing it in until the second half of 2016. are we setting up for a big policy misstep? andrew: that is what my colleague describes. hike we haveish seen. the broad international context. while the u.s. domestic market is strong, the rest of the world is not looking that great. if we take the imf database of all the countries in the world and we divide them up into three categories. we have roughly two thirds of gdp. those countries are in easing
investors off guard. anna: let's talk about the airline sector. air france reporting numbers, lufthansa reporting numbers. air france ceo will give the first interview of the day around 11 a.m. u.k. time. manus: bayer profit beats estimates in the third quarter. germany's biggest company by market value. that surpassed the estimate of 2.26. anna: we will have an exclusive

the other oil majors saying they will protect their dividends at all costs. in terms of what else they've said about the oil market, weak fundamentals continuing, significantly lower crude prices as well. refining, adjusted profit came in at 335 million euros. these earnings are not something to celebrate. the refining side is the positive lower crude prices. overall, adjusted third-quarter net loss of 257 million euros for italy's biggest oil producer. anna: pfizer has approached a botox maker about merging. let's get more with the director of research of bloomberg
intelligence. great to see you this morning. various reports that this could take place. what do you make of it? >> pfizer has been in the news quite a lot. they tried to do the astrazeneca deal. they asked a lot of questions in their earnings call. interest is still there. if they are going to do something, they have to do something before the next legislation sets in. manus: it is based in dublin with a tax rate of 4.5% pfizer plays a little bit more -- pays a little bit more back at home. 20% that it the used to be. we need to take a good look at this and figure out where the overlap is.
this could be very early and nobody responded. we have to think about the logic. apart from the inversion, if you look at the match between the businesses, there is a lot of overlap. drugs.of biologic pfizer got a load of those through the deal they did. you have to think about whether this has logic from anything allergan. anna: the political reaction, is that going to be in forming the knees conversations? -- informing them in these conversations? they are not major players.
just didnteresting, we the heat of discussion about some pharma companies price gouging and all that kind of thing. i do not know whether the market is ready or the politicians are ready for a blockbuster deal that takes loads of cash out of the treasuries coffers. -- treasury's coffers. the company has to do what it believes is right for the shareholders. anna: thank you very much. manus: as ecb executives haggle over whether to add more monetary stimulus to the euro zone economy, the forecast for inflation -- are they realistic? let's bring our pimco guest back into the conversation. and spain.s germany
spain has had negative numbers for eight months in a row. it is such a hard one for mario draghi to deal with. andrew: that is the source spot. the growth data looks ok. manufacturing 54, is expanding, credit is growing again. the inflation numbers are the problem. that drove the last decision. manus: will that drive the scale of the response? we're on the cusp again. is the level of negativity going to drive the response at christmas? zero they want to get from up to 1.7% for 2017, for a slow moving number, that is a long
journey. expectations -- new qee're going to see from the ecb. what will it look like? andrew: it will be a combination of increasing monthly quantities and probably extending the time. they are targeting a certain quantity and the quantity equals how much per month times how many months. manus: we looked at to your government bonds, germany, -- we looked at two-year government bonds all across europe. allany, netherlands, negative. they need to cut this deposit
rate. what do you make of that, is it stretching a bit too far? andrew: their negative interest rate policy is a little controversial. it has to do with the timing. on the one hand, they force the banks to hold reserves. the banks cannot get rid of those reserves. only the ecb can get rid of those excess reserves. they are trying to increase the velocity. it is like a hot potato. it around. increasing the velocity of liquidity. anna: andrew, thank you very much. manus: it has been a busy day for earnings so far.

john cryan, new co-ceo, his clean up of the bank stock has led to the largest remote loss in at least a decade. what we saw was a loss of 6 billion euros. reducing the value of the investment bank. the company reserving funds for legal costs. we did expect this. deutsche bank did one earlier this year this might happen. it also said that it plans to suspend dividends up to two years and resume a payout from fiscal 2017. and of course john cryan is going to present a bank strategy in london today as well. when on to barclays. third-quarter profits fell 10%. that was a miss. it included restructuring costs could we heard yesterday that jes staley will be taking over as ceo. the axis -- the exit jpmorgan

" we got lots of earnings out. factoring in what -- anna: we've got lots of earnings out. factoring in what that means. european stocks seen up a little bit. not a bad performance
considering the about-face that many in the market had to do around the fed and that december call. look as if the fed still considers december to be a live meeting. -- you would think investors would feel nervous about that. manus: the ftse 100 index down. most likely to do with the oil majors. we had royal dutch shell, they have reported. total shell. all out this morning. we brought the chief correspondent, javier class. .avier glass this shall number in the first the law's $7.9 billion for tickets behind the numbers. this is the biggest net loss and a decade could give us the rundown. how."
javier: the other one is shell cleaning up the house today with a big write-down, eight in dollars. half of that we were expecting because it was related to the arctic and this project in canada that they canceled. ise or less 40% of that related to the fact that shell has today lowered its forecast for future oil and gas prices. that reflects the big loss. anna: what are they factoring in ? we talked about how all of these oil majors were hatching to -- were having to adjust to prolonged stagnation. javier: they have not disclosed what their factoring in. bp was at the beginning of the year. shell is believing that prices are good to stay lower for longer. they are preparing the company
for about $60 a barrel. the big question is, they did a huge m&a acquisition earlier this year with a different price forecast. isn't that working? that is going to be the big question. manus: it has been a pretty fair let year. virulent been a pretty year. these write-downs are coming down hard. $8 billion. d here people run a mile from them? -- do you hear people run a mile from them? is notnow the producer opec, it is not russia, it is u.s. sale. the problem i have with u.s. is the processe of making them go bankrupt is not working. the shift that we have seen brings down that break even for shale oil from 50 to $55 in
texas. i think it is going to go down to $45 which is where we are now. the fourth curve on brent is wrong. people are expecting that rises and oil prices are not going to get it anytime soon. manus: opec could pull one out of the bag. >> when they are less than 40% of global supply, we don't really care anymore. they are not the marshall producer. the problem is is if u.s. shale oil producers instead of going bankrupt and continue to produce, there production will be a lot slower. javier: i will not completely discount opec. decided to change the strategy right now and they there wouldduction,
be a rally. anna: in the midst of these weak oil prices, we have been talking 60 months about the weak oil prices. how do oil businesses positioned themselves? do you do what total is doing? that strategies is the working better for them. have your: the companies that -- hobby: the companies that have focused on refining have benefited from that. the production of oil and gas, then you're going to reach the limit. one bullet point that shocked me , the return on capital employed by shell on the last quarter was 1%. you could not have made more putting on u.k. deals --
show was getting 1%. manus: you would've gotten a dividend. this is where i take exception on the old thing that's exception on the whole thing. -- exception on the whole thing. people chase dividends in the equity market. -- companiesen you costs.ucing capital and they are firing people left and right. when shell updates the market on long-term strategy on tuesday next week, we are good to see more cost-cutting. medical let's check in on the let's check in:
on the screen. we got dividend pays. we got bp on 6.86%. you got shell on 5.74%. look at that! anna: you can't take credit for that. [laughter] i've never anyone say that is my home country. anna: edward, do you go after these dividends? good there are plenty of dividend yields available elsewhere in the european market. that is what i look for, a commendation of yields but also dividend growth. these guys definitely do not have. manus: hold that thought. javier glass, great to have you with us. the chief energy correspondent here at bloomberg news. edmund edmunds is going to be with us.
manus: manus: -- 7:47 in london. here are the stories you need to know. officialsral reserve -- and a statement following their latest meeting. referencee dropped a interms of its next meeting december. the signing -- the signaling of the fed'srate hike -- hawkish tone caught investors offguard. decline.ells 70% profits adjusted. inventory charges dropped. that lifted -- that left the
analyst estimates to 2.2 billion dollars. drop in oil prices. europe's second-largest airline says these factors contributed to a 51% surge. the company says earnings will 1.9 billione of -- euros. you can see lufthansa ceo first into the of the day right here on bloomberg tv around 11:00 u.k. time. minutes ago, after the start of the european trading day, we got london indicating the rest of europe should trade higher. stocks to watch. thea: i've been watching stocks this morning. i would start with shell. decline in a 70% third-quarter profits. missing estimates.
this of course after crude prices have been slumping. brent crude down 40% in the past year. total, the oil company in europe, now it's third-quarter profit beat analyst forecasts. this is because of its refining operations. the lower price of crude beneficial for refining margins, even though that income fell. it beat those forecasts. doingmpanies have been across the world, cutting back on investment, cutting back on spending. even production, jobs. basically running back on anything but the dividends. they have been costly protecting that for their shareholders. italy's biggest oil producer has been the first to cut its dividend. it reported a net loss in the third quarter. this being hit by slumping crude prices.
total, and, back to you. banks.let's get into the germany's largest lender, does the bank saying that trading revenue rose 77% in the third quarter as the co-ceo john cryan works to clean up the post. in the u.k. -- that missed estimates. paribas, let's bring into the conversation which it putting. -- richard paddington. expectation around the investment bank, there is a flux here. change in management. what did they deliver? richard: they are slightly flatter than a year ago in the same quarter. they had a pretty terrible time. the equities business a year ago suffered from the allegations
made in new york by the attorney general. they were duping clients there, calling them into using the dark pool. they are refuting those claims. however, they don't appear to have been hit too bad. macro in credit is up. year, the investment banking advisory side of things, the m&a is up. and go looking ahead on the investment banking side, is their caution about where october has been? october has them a good. they have indicated that was not a good move for them so far. the new ceo wants to take a close look at what he needs to do in that area of the business to improve returns. manus: it is strange you mentioned the new ceo. we go behind the ticker on bloomberg, and you're able to track how an individual on the board performed relative to
their peers. what we've got is john mcfarland , he exceeded to power. july, he has been there less than three months. performance, his stock down 20%. his peers down 29%. it has not been a great time for the whole industry in this quarter. we had a tough quarter, didn't we? which: it is been pretty poor for equities as a whole. richard: it has been pretty poor for equities as a whole. that is something that has weighed on all banks. the new chief executive being announced over the past day, the shares have not rallied and barclays. not a ringing endorsement. investors will be looking for how they are executing on the strategy. if the chairman and now ceo wants to alter that at all.
they said before the end of the year they will update the market about their plans. they are talking with a regulator about what they need to do. the chairman has said he doesn't want to shift too far from the strategy. he wants to still cook that investment bank. anna: which in a number of banks reevaluating their strategies. they have done it at different times. they have chosen different paths. evaluation? -- quest theyg had ambitions to be a global bank. it is over. they need to scale back. they need to pick and choose their battles, just like deutsche bank. they need to pick and choose where they can be relevant and where they can make money. areas like fixed income where it is going to get tougher and tougher. problem for all
investment banks. deutsche bank has exactly the same problem. all you can do is show up with an ax and swing hard. manus: you have to love the irony. when you look in the net numbers over deutsche bank, it was the trading investment that did well. let's get over to jon ferro. he is up at 8:00 a.m. with on the move. what is in store it? djokovic manus cranny, you and i will have become session about john cryan. -- jonathan: manus cranny, you and i will have become -- will have a conversation about john cryan. a lot to discuss. beyond that, front and center, it is a hawkish hold from the federal reserve. the fmo see holding steady on rates dropping warnings about local risks. what has changed? we will have a discussion about that. the december meeting is now live. anna: thank you very much. --ot of people reinvest desk
