10:14 am
on the lincoln which looks to boost the lagging brand. a first on bloomberg and of course, no car conversation would be complete without the car guru matt miller joining in as well. let's start with the rollout. it is no secret that sales have -- it isd there is troubling to see how ford is not able to get the log -- the luxury market paired what will be different? >> the mkv is an important product for us and an important segment in the luxury industry. sales have been doing quite well. 2014 was a great year for us. luxury industry grew about 7%. lincoln grew 14% or we outpaced
10:15 am
the industry to-one. ups year, our sales are 7.5%. it is an important product for us. the portfolio is doing quite well. matt: the sales growth has mostly been due to the navigator. declined about 13% for sedan. obviously, this new look should stem the decline. wheelu need to add real -- rearwheel platform. >> i knew you're going to ask that. cars toesigning our meet our customer's needs. wetever the needs are, observe those carefully and then design the platforms or the technology or the features to deliver those needs. if certain cars in certain --ments require the rearview

rear wheel drive, we will look at that. matt: you sold 100,000 of your lincoln's two years ago. by 2020.cell 300,000 the secret is in china. that is where the brand is a huge hit at much stronger than most americans can appreciate. i you designing cars specifically for the market? >> we are taking input from all markets. the china market has some unique is but for the most part, the cars are fundamentally the same. customers like different fabrics and interiors. we take it all into account in the design process. china is very important to us. 20 stores open in china and plan to open a new store in china every 10 days here.
10:17 am
betty: i want to go back to the rear wheel drive transmission and why you have not come out with that. if as matt rightly says, that is a key part of eating in the luxury market, why have you not decided to roll out a version of that? >> we are looking at the entire design philosophy differently. what kind of experience to we want the customers to have as they drive the vehicles? you understand what is important to them in the rearwheel drive does a couple of things. it is unique for certain driving dynamics and to provide certain kinds of proportions to the vehicle. as we study those needs, if necessary, we will do it but for now, with our great suv coverage and portfolio, and the continental con -- coming, we
10:18 am
feel we have the right products for the target customers. betty: i am told the plan in is pre-much running at capacity and you cannot produce any more now. are you going to be taking that out of the plan to manufacture it somewhere else? >> are correct our kentucky plan, where we build a lincoln, is running at full capacity, which is fantastic for us. we regularly manage how to use our capacity most optimally. we have now made no decision on input change for either one of these vehicles. matt: we were all excited to see the new continental. i cannot wait to get behind the wheel and drive it. but the suv has really in leading your growth. are we going to have an all new link -- all new lincoln navigator?

10:22 am
betty: julie hyman has a check on the big-company movers. julie: apple is what we're talking about this morning. over goldman sachs, an interesting call on the company. -- a pricehe stock of 160 dollars -- shares are moving up by 3% this morning. thesays it is time for thinking about apple to shift from being a hardware company to a services company, sparked by apple's new efforts to provide an installment plan. she says eventually, it will migrate people to tv services and other types of services and maybe a bundle will also include its mood -- it's music service, for example. services now are a small proportion of the company's revenue. it is this yellow bar as opposed to iphones, by far the company's biggest revenue. services are less than 10% of the revenue. this would represent quite a big
10:23 am
shift. look at you take a revenue here, saying right now, if you did interpret the company's model and say, ok, it is already services, the revenue per user would be $42 and she says this could climb as high as $153, potentially, which would mean a huge increase in revenue for the company. you.: thank match group, the company behind online dating sites including match.com, tinder, okcupid, as they're pricing their ipos after the bell. a rocky year as you know for the ipo market. do these companies have what it takes to turn around the sentiment? .oining me is emily chang much has been made about the evaluation, particularly square. emily: it is interesting. apple andnies like
10:24 am
google, we talked to an analyst yesterday who said, this is not a tech company, but a payments company. paypal.looking at those are square competitors. something else raised recently is if you look at the fully diluted shares, the valuation public and private really are not drastically different. it gives square evaluation closer to $5.7 billion. we know if they were looking at a $6 billion valuation in the private markets -- i sat down with reid hoffman yesterday, the cofounder of linkedin, venture capitalist, and i asked him about the difference we're seeing between private and public market valuation. is there a bubble and what is he saying? take a listen. >> what happens is, and this is why i think there is a quasi-bubble, public -- public see othereople can people buying and selling and things, and they can kind of stabilize. private tents to be the player
10:25 am
that puts the biggest check forward. it is easy to get an evaluation because someone jumps in at a higher valuation, believes the upward trajectory of the market, but that does not actually affect things like the internet bubble did, pension funds and everything else, because it is a very focused and small position. it is not a general public markets position. see more of them because i think people are trying to figure out, what are ,he next airbnb's, uber's they're trying to figure it out. it matters to them economically. you guess wrong. betty: i think it is interesting because square was valued on a tech basis privately so we can get more money, and now it is like, no, we're just a payments company. emily: i think square is strong. $24,000 valuation.
10:26 am
and i said, do you worry and they said no, no they don't. it is very subjective but i think the point is public to private valuations are not necessarily apples to apples. betty: no, they're not. you have got a lot more ahead. emily: yes, a quirky guy and a oft talker on the board tesla and spacex. very close to elon musk, who i know you know very well, but a fascinating guy. the world's's largest private space collection. thinking a lot about artificial intelligence and health driving cars. right, thank you ♪. we will be back. ♪ ♪

expecting to cross at any moment, as we have seen a last several weeks. the stockpile has continued to grow and that puts pressure on oil prices. i want to head to julie hyman. we see again that commodities that than hit today. julie: yes, once again, oil prices have been volatile at the very least. we have these numbers coming out now. a built like there is in inventories. much smaller than estimated. .50,000 barrels this would appear to be good news for oil trading today. gasoline inventories up one .0 one million barrels, where a drawdown was expected. news.le bit of split down 790 thousand barrels. that is about twice the drawdown estimated. you little bit of a mixed picture on the refined products
10:31 am
but overall, we are seeing them build much smaller than had been estimated. inhas been a rough month oil terms of anyone bullish on it. we have only seen the price of oil rise for about four days, four sessions the entire month. there has been a negative tone to oil trading. if you look at what is going on with oil, we are seeing a little bit of a leg down in oil prices on the back of these numbers but still positive by about .9%. you tend to see some volatility in the oil prices as traders try to figure out what to make of the numbers. betty: thank you. we will keep an eye on how the oil rises trade throughout on the inventory numbers to i want to continue with the bloomberg first alert news is money. money and has more from the news desk. theie: president obama says attack on the russian jetliner in egypt may change russia's is roach to be islamic state.

10:34 am
mr. obama: apparently, they are scared of widows and orphans coming into the united dates of america as part of our tradition of compassion. first, they were worried about the press being too tough on them during debates, now they're worried about three-year-old orphans. does not sound very tough to me. the safety concerns raised by lawmakers in both parties have created real problems for the president and the white house. that appears to be missing from the discussion are the details on the vetting process that refugees actually face if they want to settle here in the united states. phil mattingly has been on the phone with administration officials on this. give us a clear picture of what the process is for syrian refugee to settle in the united states. the process exists and it is very extensive and from a refugee program really started
10:35 am
in the 1970's, used in earnest with vietnamese refugees in the vietnam war ended as we did in 2007 with the iraq war and iraqi refugees or it the actual process that goes into a syrian refugee trying to resettle in the united states, worst, the agency sets and uses its security process before even referring it to the states. once referred, then they started screening process. first is biometric screening. fingerprints, retina scans. this is run primarily by the department of homeland security as well as the ei. and in person interview with the , the department of homeland security, and then you have a biographic review. crosschecked are between multiple agencies including the national counterterrorism center, fbi, department of defense, and department of homeland carry. at that point, the process could start resettlement. house hasthe white been trying to make and the frustration from administration officials is there is not only a
10:36 am
process that exists, but it is extensive. a lot of what is being tossed around right now is rhetoric ignoring the at that it is not easy to get over here to matter where you are only. betty: john halpern got to ask one of the presidential candidates, jeb bush, his stance on the refugees. i want you to listen to what he said. bush: we have systems in place. if there is any kind of concerned, we should not allow people in here and i do not think we should eliminate our support for refugees. it has been a noble tradition in our country. >> including muslim refugees? you do not want to ban them? mr. bush: i don't the answer is not to ban people from coming. the answer is to lead to resolve the problem in syria. that is the ultimate focus. betty: how big of a political issue will this be?
10:37 am
what you heard was a rather measured response to compare that to some of the candidates including ted cruz, rand paul, two senators who not only opposed resettlement entirely, but rand paul today's introducing a bill in the u.s. senate to cut off government assistance for refugees already in the country. can look atnd you what is going on in louisiana, a governor said -- governors race runoff, where an advertisement has already been put out saying obama let thousands of syrian , thises into the country is an issue politicians clearly identified holds well. people are scared. they are scared after paris and they have a lot of mistrust as to whether the government can run a vetting process that works. a key element officials keep allowng out, they would 10,000 to settle in the country. only 1800 have been let in. of that, only 2% are single
10:38 am
, the vast majority are the elderly and children. a little perspective should be added to this and unfortunately, when the politics get involved, sometimes that can be pushed aside. you for clarifying the issue for us in the u.s. tonight,ming note another republican presidential joins them to this time it is lindsey graham joining the conversation tonight beginning at 5:00 p.m. eastern time. ♪

the federal reserve's outlook for monetary policy in those fed minutes. the expectation is that the fed is going to raise rates in december. are we ready? what exactly did they say? will dudley says that we are ready to raise rates. mr. dudley: this is probably the most well advertise, discussed, mused over prospect of the giving a normalization of monetary policies in history. i think that when we do begin it won't be a huge surprise. i'm not looking for a big reaction. who knows, right? i want to bring in a former fed governor who is now a professor at the university of chicago school of business. dudley, saying we are ghana do it. we had advertised that we are going to do it. why would the markets react violently to it? do you think he is right?
11:06 am
>> i'm hopeful that he's right. i think that this will be a bit like what happened a few years ago with the taper tantrum, when there was a suspicion that they would reduce the pace of increase, the markets became volatile, but then nothing happened. this is uncharted territory. betty: what has got you. -- doubting it? >> the challenge will be the communication around it. 25 basis points plus or minus a few months, the world cannot possibly rest on that. if the world collapses because of that, there is nothing the fed can do. what will really -- happen next? what is the path going forward? that will be the difficult communication challenge and where the opportunity for this comes in. betty: how high will they go, exactly.
11:07 am
fed minutes themselves, what will you be looking for parsing those minutes? they had two main criteria for liftoff off. one, the labor market is sustained with a sustainable recovery. i think we much everyone agrees that we are close enough to move. be reasonablyo confident that inflation can reach the 2% goal. that.of questions about charlie evans recently said that he thought that inflation was quite low, expectations have been moving down. there has been a lot of discussion and i will be interested to see how they talk about that in the minutes. we have had low rates for six or seven years now. opinion thate we've done all beef could? did we get everything we wanted out of qe? is the fed the only game in town? it's not. it is a necessary condition for economic growth to prevent you
11:08 am
played in doing that. but there are fiscal policy uncertainties, regulatory uncertainties, and obviously global uncertainties that can slow things down. but i think we are in a position where the fed can begin to move ahead. as long as it describes the path forward as a gentle one. dennis lockhart talked about the timing of this. you talked about the journey, the path, but dennis also talked about the timing. i want you to listen to what he said. before thet: breakout of heightened financial market volatility in august, i was ready to support lift off at the september meeting. but i supported the decision to hold off. i thought that the decision -- i thought that it was prudent to monitor global developments for a while. i also support the decision at the october meeting to keep the
11:09 am
policy rate unchanged. because not enough information, new information, had accumulated regarding the drivers of the august volatility. are you an agreement with dennis there? did we miss and away the timing? no, no, i don't think he said be missed the timing. there was uncertainty, a lot of volatility in the markets in the fed was not quite sure what the source of the volatility was. i think the fed is a very cautious institution. they decided that since they are not really sure, will plus or minus three months make an and or miss the economy? probably not, especially since we haven't seen inflation pressure yet. my point is -- are we any more sure than we were in september? they did say that they felt the fed missed the window when it felt like the economy was on stronger footing. mr. kroszner: as the most recent
11:10 am
employment report suggests, the economy is still on a reasonably strong footing. gangbusters? no. reasonable, solid, moderate growth? sure. should it be able to withstand the first step in a moment -- modernization process? i would think so. certainly we don't know that for sure, but i think that's reasonable and given the volatility in september if things had gotten more volatile, the fed would have gotten the blame and if they had had to move back, that would have hurt their credibility. giving a clear foundation for what they are going to do and talking about what's coming next helps to build the credibility. before we go, charting where the rates are headed, some economists said that we would probably see one rate rise for order for the next year. if you look at the dot plot, that chart shows you that by 2018 we will be near 4% in
11:11 am
interest rates. does that sound right to you? at least i think the way the fed is thinking about it now, that's probably a little bit aggressive. for quite some time they have said that even if the conditions get back to more normal conditions, they will probably be slow to raise rates, leave them below where they would be in the long run. also, if you look at where those intimate -- infamous plots are headed, the endpoint used to before and is moved down to three and a half and my guess is that when we get them at the next meeting we will see them even lower. i think the endpoint is probably going to be closer to 3, 3 and a half, and they get there in a very gentle way. betty: randy, always great to talk to you. universitygovernor, of chicago professor. much more coming up, two big toerviews you don't want miss. congressman frank pallone of new jersey, leading the charge

11:14 am
. good morning, look at back to "bloomberg markets." a look at some of the biggest business stories in the news right now. building fell more than expected last month, housing starts dropped after an annual rate of just over one million homes. a big reason was the slump in afterent construction
11:15 am
falling almost 5% in september. blackrock shutting down its hedge fund because of investor retention. down more than 9% this year from 2013, the assets had fallen 4.6 million dollars to under just a billion. blackrock is the world's largest asset manager. joining the ranks of other hedge funds. for the second year in a row upper fifth avenue is the most expensive place to leave retail space. up almost 4% this year to $3500 per square foot. higher than the world second priciest shopping district. that is causing problems in hong kong. can always get more business news at bloomberg.com. we want to head to the market desk, where julie hyman has a check on some of the company movers, what shoppers are buying, and certainly a look at apple products. right? julie: not only apple products,
11:16 am
but apple services. we tested a thesis from jankowski, who said it was time to stop inking of the company is a hardware company and think of it more as a services company. it offers a new installment plan with its newest iphone. 3%, she has a price target of $163 over the next 12 months. what is also interesting is that she said if apple starts to offer more and more services, say a tv subscription or a bundle that includes apple music, the revenue per user to $150 --$42 currently to $153, the maximum revenue it could reach under this revenue. that means that revenue could reach $553 billion. take a look at the bloomberg terminal for some perspective. withis the apple revenue $233 billion. analysts project over the next couple of years $268 billion.
11:17 am
far below $553 billion. she is seeing a lot of potential hilts into this stock -- built into this stock. i want to talk about some other technology shares as well. qualcomm is one of them. the trade commission is accusing the company of violating local competition laws in a way that licenses technologies to customers. they have fought a number of legal battles around the globe. this is the latest but it is obviously sparking concern among shareholders and traders. as you can see, shares are down 8%. this licensing of technology is the main way that qualcomm makes its revenue. looking at citrix, the company says they are set to cut 1000 jobs and spinning off their go to business. they have been under pressure from elliott management and there have been talk of them selling the go to business. there appears to be disappointment among analysts
11:18 am
who were disappointed that they could not sell go to and were instead spinning it off, slating for reorganization and restructuring of the company perhaps falling short of expectations. finally, go pro is down as well. piper jeffrey analyst aaron murphy is cutting the price target to the lowest on the street, $15, saying that there is further price pressure if you look at amazon and flash sale sites you are seeing, apparently, go pro products at discount. not necessarily a good sign. flag there, thank you so much, julie hyman at the markets desk. let's look at investing in developing markets. in a month hasly faded. martin gilbert, ceo and cofounder of aberdeen asset management joined stephanie ruhle this morning. one fourth of their billions in assets are invested in emerging markets.
11:19 am
it's been a tough two years. we have seen outflows from the fund or the last two years. we have seen sovereign wealth funds selling big-time equities. we have seen a couple of tough years for aberdeen. we have seen a slight change in sentiment, with quite a bit of interest from u.s. institutions in emerging markets. this is the first we have seen of that in two years. we haven't seen any retail interest yet, or even european interest, really. the institution stuck with the asset class and they are investing a bit more. certain winners and losers? i think you are long in india. what about china? >> we have nothing in china, mostly because of the corporate governance issues, but that didn't help, when the melt down in chinese equities came, we were hit across the board. we were probably too heavy in
11:20 am
malaysia on political issues, but india has been fantastic, mexico has been good. what we have actually seen as some big corporations taking a chance to buy subsidiaries. big hole in the sab miller tobacco company in brazil , taking over. we have seen that as a triumph. >> right now we are seeing hedge funds get hurt day in and day out. you have a larger structure than they do. in hedge fund investment. are you seeing money coming out of funds and being put into funds like yours? i wish we were. >> i just sold it right there for you. [laughter] >> the flow to separately managed accounts and allocators come primarily from the dealers side to the investment advisory side. not so much from the hedge fund university advisors. >> clearly it makes sense to be in the s&p during the bull market run, they are always
11:21 am
going to perform hedge funds. those are supposed to protect us on the downside. whether they do or not, obviously the long short is going to underperform like this. >> show us funds in the last quarter. right now i'm coming in from someone who just referred the themselves as the next macro master and he's crushing it. he may be but i think that when you tell you -- call yourself a master it's kind of the kiss of death. at hl ds, thisg is aberdeen here and we can see his holdings. ,hese are some of the changes right? they have done them in the last quarter? a reduction in energy holdings is probably very smart. a little bit of a reduction in financials. a big increase in i.t. holdings. i noticed that, by the way, similar to what we see if i look , i wonder whatre you are doing differently than,
11:22 am
say, black rock? if i pull up their chart, you don't see any changes in the energy holding. you see a bigger, massive reduction in their financials. the blackrock theme fund is being wound down. obviously they are not doing something right that you are doing differently. that we like in emerging markets are definitely consumer led. we like countries like india and mexico, especially ones that benefit from the lower energy prices. matt: strong holdings in yum! brands, pepsico, for example. and in india we like hdf see. we like the banks in india, the nonstate owned banks. india has really been a star performer for us, but it is quite expensive at the moment. we have been quite fortunate, or otherwise, getting to big
