if they see the economy is still holding, they are likely to stay or investors in europe, any kind isuncertainty around brexit a buying opportunity. think the stock markets are pricing in all of the possible implications of a brexit? >> you already see it in the pound. you are paying a low multiple for trough earnings. there are a lot of good signals happening right now in europe. the europeans will be the last ones to see them. david: walk us through some of those good signals. where do you see the good signs? the market has been grinding
down on corporate earnings. right now, you are paying low valuation for trough earnings, and that is a compelling case to buy. the banks have recapitalized, and it is all wrapped up with quantitative easing. it is a real case to be at least partially waited in european equities. global investors are huddled into the u.s. market right now. asia is cheaper because earnings yet.not troughed what about spots in europe that you like better? do you see a compelling case, even in a place like that? >> recently, you are seeing pmi in some peripheral countries get stronger.

[indiscernible] up next, i sit down for an exclusive interview with ken bentsen. ♪
lisa: this is bloomberg markets. david is sitting down. the shift could save billions for investors annually. speaking yesterday, thomas said the new rules are all about axing a broken system. >> this is about a system that is structurally flawed. the incentives are not aligned. is consumer's best interest not aligned with the current
incentives that result in payments to brokers. they said it was poorly drafted and flawed. kenneth benson is with us for an exclusive interview. you say this will protect investment or retirees, you disagree with that. i disagree with the premise the department laid out. congress voted six years ago on this and directed the sec to study the issue and authorize them to write a fiduciary role. we strongly support that. but we may have ended up -- we don't know, this was very complex when it was proposed. marketuld cause
confusion by adding yet another standard to the marketplace. you look at this retirement market you have a lot more people investing now. distinctionsnal may have been lost on some people. members, case of our almost all of them have dual registrants as advisors. really it is what the customer is choosing. they tend to choose based on price and choice. we don't know yet because we have to figure it out, but the customer could be negatively impacted. this is what the sec took many years looking at. mary jo white said if we restrict choice and raise cost, that is not what we want to do.
at the end of the day, the industry has been in favor of a uniform fiduciary standard when providing personal investment advice. we just think the way the department what about it would have unintended consequences. david: people who do not will sayd these rules i want my broker to be acting in my best interest. this rule appears to be doing that. rule limits what you can invest in, limit your choice of how you want to buy services, investors may not like that as well. those are the issues we try to raise with the department. on one account, it is my all of itary account, is retirement at the end of the day, one may be taxable and another is not. that could create some confusion. david: do you think there will
be followed from here? >> it could create compliance issues for her. they have to create metrics to go across the industry. , i issue with the secretary take issue with how this was portrayed as a broken system. this was a highly regulated area of the market. the way the law has been moving, has beenhat enron moving, it's very much a fiduciary model a lot got lost in the rhetoric. came oute rule yesterday, i'm sure you are working your way through it, shall take on is that this is a weaker rule than expected. if you look at stocks yesterday, a lot of brokerages were up. is that a victory for you? this,ry word matters in
the lawyers have to look at every single word. i don't know if those are the right adjectives to use here. is it effective, how will it affect investor choice, price? those are the things we need to look for. david: you mentioned compliance. i wonder how this will change how brokerages do businesses. as you see it, what will demand it be like? >> the vast majority of brokerages already put their client's best interest first. two reasons. many are dual registered, so they are running fiduciary accounts for clients that want of service. and it's an incredibly competitive marketplace. those that do not put their customers first will tend to see their customers leave. have the deepest, most cap the liquid markets, the most democratic retail brokerage
markets. i think all of those work in the investors favor. what concerns us, if you layer over what is already a highly regulated area, it could be quite costly, and those costs do get passed on. david: we hear a lot about the advent of robo advisors. >> we are having our private client come today in midtown. number of through a panels where you had industry professionals talking about this. the industry is looking at it on as a substitution but complementary, as part of the investor model. more and more people are using technology across demographics. where we think there might be a concern, turning the entire marketplace, or a huge segment only, without the
human touch. the human touch is very important in terms of investors staying steady, not reacting to short-term negative news. david: there has been a lot of back-and-forth. do you see your firm suing the labor department? are right now, understanding with the rule says, how our firms will implement this, what compliance regimes and systems built they will have to do. that is a decision the numbers will have to make, but it is very premature to even consider. david: thank you, ken bentsen. lisa: still ahead, we are following the selloff. here are the markets, red across the board.

in the meantime, the general obligation bonds -- they have come up with a plan to put this structure forward. why were they taken off guard by the news this week? they were taken off guard because the administration -- the bank was running out of money and in fact, some public agencies on the island used the government development bank as their checking account. these agencies have started asking for their deposits back. they can handle these requests all at once. investors were caught off guard because they weren't anticipating this loss. race for thehe white house. hillary clinton and bernie
sanders trading jabs at stakes begin to rise. tenders said clinton is not qualified to be president after senator clinton questioned his grasp on the issues like wall street oversight. the rhetoric is building between bernie sanders and hillary clinton. is this the most contentious it has been between the two of them? is an a certainly phenomenal accusations of the ball fight is a pretty serious thing. , as ofteney are tired happens in campaigns after a wild. nerves are rubbed a little raw and i think from the sender's point of view, they need to shake the race up and use the alter theo fundamental dynamics of this race. genuinelydates are
feeling aggrieved. david: let's talk about the tableau here. he did not know that you do not use a token to ride the metro and we saw hillary clinton having difficulty using the metro card. but let's get to the meat of the matter. bernie sanders asked about part of what he is campaigning on and having a thin answer. mark: senator sanders is still defending his performance in that editorial board. something john heilemann have found in our interviews with him is that he does not have a lot of details on his policy proposals. it doesn't mean his day, broad notions of reform and political revolution don't have a big following, but if you want to put yourself lord as president, you need details and i think hillary clinton has seized on that in a pretty aggressive way.
we will try to do our best to summarize it, but on one level, it is so small and so petty and childish as compared to the way they have mostly conducted themselves throughout this race, which is not to this end into you said this, you set that. the heart of the dispute is are you qualified to be president? secretary clinton, while in an interview a couple of days ago did not come out and say bernie sanders is not qualified, their interview was read that way by some people and senator sanders sees on that to say she is not end, theywhen in the both think the other is more qualified and would support them compared to any republicans who might be nominated. one of the companies bernie sanders called out was ge. ge wrote an editorial saying ge has been in the business for 125
years and have never been a big hit with socialists. unexpectedlytrump cleared his schedule for the next few days in preparation for the new york race. what do you make of this? we have been discussing, he's very strong in new york. polling shows him doing really well throughout the state. i don't think is a question of losing new york but there's the ability for him to win literally every delegate in the state. if you do well enough in these congressional districts, you can when the delegates and i think trump recognizes there is a hothouse environment in new york that is totally different from anything else. we have not had a truly contested primary in new york for a long time. he wants to stay on his home turf and sweep it. delegate, every matters now. in -- heegate he uses
loses in new york is a delegate he may regret not winning. he's trying to win new york big enough. david: how big a chance does he have an upstate new york? mark: he is popular upstate, he's popular in long island, he's probably weakest in manhattan because the voters he does worst with tends to be the wealthiest arers and those concentrated in his own district and other areas in manhattan. trump's going to the state in the challenge for john kasich and ted cruz trying to pick off 20%,ates and get above which is the way they can split the delegates, the challenge is targeting individual district his tough because of the way the
media markets work. have a good time in kansas city. you can see all things politics heilemann and mark halperin with -- on "with all ."e respect you said a lot there and i will say some more -- the nasdaq is the biggest record of the biggestn 9.6% and the laggard on our markets down 3% or so. etf is also down similarly, down by 1.7%, its biggest fall since early february. 70 of the stocks mirrored on a
total return index are all in the negative. a look at some specific stocks. i'm going to have to send it back. david: a bit of breaking news -- verizon communications lands to make a bid for yahoo!'s web business. verizon to indications planning to make a bid for yahoo!'s web businesses next week. ♪
that verizon is interested. that they are amenable to buying the yahoo! japan stake which is something sources told me verizon doesn't want. that indicates there has been some back-and-forth between yahoo! and verizon. that's not really a surprise that yahoo! would prefer that. it is a surprise verizon is amenable to doing that. it's a signal that they are all in and they would love to buy yahoo! and merge it with aol and either give the yahoo! japan stake to its own shareholders or turn around and sell it. google is also interested in yahoo!. that's a name no one has reported yet. we don't have firm proof that
they are making a bid but they are definitely interested. we have news of some companies that are not going to bid. not going toast bed. microsoft not going to bid. these were names we had reported as potentially interested but took a look at the sales books and decided they are going to pass on it. david: what is appealing to verizon about it? turned whenk things they bought aol. they can merge those businesses, starboard pushed to merge, the activist investor, push them to merge and then aol sold itself to verizon and they both have a programmatic ad business they can put together and you marry that with verizon and their wireless video business, you
could have an interesting mobile video product. verizon took on some content assets when they bought aol like the huffington post. but really, you are taking globals billion or so users and marrying the information you get with that and you have something interesting. david: emily chang is joining us from san francisco. i want to get your sense of what you make of that. emily: i think that's pretty incredible. we know melissa meyer has a long history at google and knows a lot of folks there. it would be an interesting investment for google to make. since been two months yahoo! opened this process and finally, the ball is starting to roll. a number of parties we talked to behind the scenes said they are getting the cold shoulder from
melissa meyer and there were questions about whether indeed she really wanted to sell the company. it seems like the process is already moving along. she told charlie rose a couple of weeks ago that she would like to continue running yahoo! for several more years. she truly believed she could turn around the company, but it was going to take a long time. if great scoop here is verizon buys yahoo!, they would replace marissa mayer with tim armstrong from aol and another executive ice president that would run the two of them combined. indeednteresting that if verizon buys it yahoo!, it seems like marissa mayer would be out of a job. guest: emily touched on that
marissa would not come along and they verizon deal but there are other private equity firms that are going to proceed with a first round bid. these firms have said we are open to partnering with a strategic firm that might be interested. in a combination like that, marissa could come along but we have been told that it is probably unlikely that she sticks around. sources have said we would not bring her along. said to proceed along -- rain and tpg considering bids. losingd comcast interest. more bloomberg markets after the break. ♪
