3:02 pm
earnings. mentioned,as carol partly because a lot of folks are cutting earnings estimates. other companies set to beer -- to report this week, also rising for what may come from those reports. i want to point out that along with automakers, really lagging this year thus far, you see they are below on a percentage adjusted aces. right, -- in white, autos and yellow. we are starting to see more of a list in recent days as we see a recovery there. the question is will it be enough to make up for the big drag? climbing as aare result. the defensive play is going to the wayside. right. gold, a more risk on attitude sentiment today.
3:03 pm
gold is falling. we are seeing a buying of treasuries. the yield is moving lower as the price moves higher. you could argue there is safety in either the yen or the dollar depending on how you look at it. today, the yen is lower versus the u.s. dollar following yesterday's gains on the dollar as well. oil prices have been over the map. declines earlier, they went higher and now back to the lows of the session. we the inventories report was mixed, showing a building crude but also higher demand for gasoline and lower production. all of that now is equaling a falling oil price. thank you. now let's get a check of the headlines. mark crumpton has more from the newsroom. mark: thank you. family suing the flight school where the suicide pilot trained. phoenix was filed in against airline training center in arizona. andrea crashed a plane into the

3:06 pm
strategist at charles schwab. you are back with us here in december. we got fromwhat j.p. morgan, do you have more conviction about financials now? >> it was a tough order for financials p are we are now seeing not just the fact that jpmorgan has found ways of showing maybethere are ways of getting through, it has been a tough quarter with negative interest rates and credit concerns about oil, they found a way to profitably move through that era the key is rising inflation expectations. the reason that is important for what they is that is base their profit margins for landing on. it lists the longer end of the yield curve and they make more on each loan, which is critical. it has not yet meaningfully picked up in europe as that begins to show signs around the world. more of a list of financials. i am more focused on q2 and the
3:07 pm
outlook for those expectations. what we got from j.p. morgan, does that set the ground from what we got from wells fargo, goldman sachs next week, morgan chase -- morgan stanley, excuse me, so there is a lot more to come. what do you anticipate from the rest of the group? >> we want to hear things from wells fargo. maybe the most exposure to energy and oil lending. how they arear lending the credit exposure there. we want to hear from some of the most global lenders about how markets are effective around the world, particularly in europe and other parts of the world where we want to see it begin to pick up. from differents companies. overall, having gotten through a tough quarter and setting themselves up for a better second half is what people will be looking for and wanting to hear. different things from different financials.
3:08 pm
forow much better everything, the corporate environment as a whole and the investment environment? >> it depends. we are looking at early signs that china may be destabilizing. we got data last week of the manufacturing index. that will be the key in taking a look at what the global demand picture looks like here and we have started to see some sights in the u.s. of things starting to pick back up again. shift intum of the forward-looking growth is critical for our expectations for the 2017 profits and much of that begins to get priced into the second half of this year. i would expect to bet more on volatility that continued the upward rise in the last few months. retailill dig into the sales figure we got that was no doubt disappointing. >> yes. you are right. there are pockets of weakness. we are not seeing uniform shifts in weakness to.
3:09 pm
january and february, we seemed to be heading for a recession. trajectory over the last few months and how the fed perceives it as well. the fed talks about hiking rates, that could tighten financial -- wind out of the sails and financials. is -- if the fed raises rates, doesn't that mean they're confident enough -- >> if it just look like rates will go up slowly. the key is how fast and aggressive and how that balances the global economic picture. janet yellen talked about developments abroad, the phrase she uses. the chinese data, some of the data out of europe we're seeing, that is a good sign. hiking rates, slow but that he, globalll not upset the
3:10 pm
economic picture. we just do not have enough data and neither does the fed. that is why more volatility. data: do you have enough to feel confident about where to invest at this point? >> yes. one thing i'm excited about is the upward change after he in the eurozone. we are seeing a good outlook for profits this corner and next as we look to europe and asia as well, there is not as prominent and energy sector so the drag is not quite as severe. the turnaround of financials as are really benefiting as things turn around and inflation expectations and so on and other areas. t shortok brighter in term particularly as the dollar remains stable here and financial conditions remain solid. carol: thank you so much. i appreciate your input.

3:45 pm
>> a number of stocks are raising the dividend. a big drop down. these are all for the first quarter. that is the biggest quarter typically in which companies will raise their dividend. you look at the dollar amount and what we are looking at is not just the number of companies which has gotten lower, but also the dollar amount. last year in the first quarter, they raise dividends by $12 billion. it is the smallest amount since 2009. perhaps part of it. there are two arguments. one is that cash on hand, we know earnings are junk right now. it is bad here at we know the cash is getting stressed when you look at measurements like financing gaps and measurements like the basic difference between companies coming in for cash and what only put out. i think what is really interested here -- interesting
3:46 pm
here is dividends are lower because we have got energy problems. that is where the cuts are coming from, but across all 10 sectors, seven -- seven out of 10 have fewer dividend increases and they are all smaller this year. it is starting to happen beyond the area. carol: we talk about companies being plush in terms of balance sheet. capital, pumping in if you will. it is interesting that there are slowing down, maybe it is a cautious stance here. >> it is definitely a decision where if you are confident that this is the best place for money, maybe you do not want to put it out in capex or something like that. reason, they are choosing to keep that closer to their chest right now. what is interesting is if you look at what is happening in the next five years, it is not definite. there are dividend swap products you can trade. futures, another chart is looking at expected dividend
3:47 pm
growth rates in the next five years. what they do is basically interpolate an annual chain based on what people are paying now for dividend futures and expected dividend growth. it is not looking good. less than 1% growth. either that will have to give or you have earning expectations that will have to give. we will see what happens. carol: my guess is the executives will be asked about it. thank you so much. our bloomberg news stocks team. coming up, facebook just --ounced a huge milestone as at the annual conference. emily chang is sitting down with the company's chief technology officer next. ♪
