10:02 am
big impact on the overall direction we are seeing today. the dow and s&p, little change. nasdaq doing a little better. any increase means we are at new highs for the year above 2100 as we have been watching for the s&p 500. above 18,000 for the down. as we get into the thick of earning season the focus switches to micro from macro. let's take a look at the scorecard. this is something we will probably be checking on a daily basis on the bloomberg. .t is ea here is the quarter by quarter change in earnings per share and earnings pers and share. chris for shared down about 10% with 69 of the 500 companies in the s&p reporting sales up about one third of 1%. betty: tell us about some of the movers. coca-cola coming out disappointing investors even the earnings-per-share feet estimates. shares fell 4% matching but analysts anticipated.

10:07 am
the most in nearly two months. shanghai composite dropped 4.5% overnight. no obvious news driving the decline. some are pointing to signs china's central bank has not reduced the appetite for monetary easing. joining us now is ben manziel. good to see you. could you ride in at the nation for what happened in china? -- could you find an explanation for what happened in china? ben: i think we have seen an economy accelerating through the middle of the year. evidence of that is an asset investment that has been pretty strong. housing market has been pretty strong. even our medium-term view on china is not a particularly sanguine one, i think what that does, when you have an medium trend that is challenging a short run trend that is stabilizing that is a recipe for
10:08 am
volatility. i do not think there necessarily needs to be a particular news item or trigger when you have that confluence of events. i think we are looking at tension between near term and short term. betty: your outlook on oil is pretty negative. ben: over the medium to long-term certainly. the short run is about geopolitics. if you want to predict the oil price in the short run you need to have a strong conviction view of some geopolitical event. betty: you see price swings may be $10? ben: i think you see price swings in that order of magnitude. in the medium to long-term it is all about u.s. shale productivity and real interest rates, both of which will put pressure on the oil price. strengthens, the inverse of that is the dollar weakening. -- unless the dollar
10:09 am
strengthens, the fed will resume their rate hike in june which leads to my question, as the bloomberg dollar spot index trades at its lowest in a year, is the full run over? -- is the bull run over? ben: i believe there something left to it markets are pricing in a nontrivial possibility that fomc stays on the hold or moves in the opposite direction. our view is that you are going to see about two rate hikes this year consistent with what the fomc has projected and that will be an upward impetus for the dollar. how far they can go is going to depend on the path of the dollar in and of itself. i think you get into relation between those things but in general upward support for the dollar as monetary policy does its work over the course of the year. mark: one of the more interesting calls came from prudential financial.
10:10 am
it says the 10 year yield could fall as low as 1.25%. i want to bring up a chart on the bloomberg which shows the japanese bond market. the yield on the 40 year fell to a record low meaning that all parts of the curve are yielding below .3%. point inential have a the search for yield you will continue to push u.s. treasuries higher and yields lower? ben: i think that is certainly a possibility. this is part of the u.s. treasury market and the u.s. dollar's privilege in being a global reserve currency. so part of it is that. i generally agree with your point that there is a search for yield and when we look at fixed income markets we see compelling
10:11 am
opportunities in relative value where the high yield markets, u.s. treasury, australian bond market relative to the food and jg be in canada. real yield will be an important factor driving returns for investors. one which we subscribe to. betty: i want you to look on your screen. inside our bloomberg there is a cool chart where we map out the returns. the relative returns of three asset classes. 1970's, stocks still outperformed all of the other -- the two other major asset classes. no matter what your outlook is stocks are still the best that. ben: what that chart is telling you is that the equity risk rhenium has not collapsed. certain risk premium markets which have been decimated.
10:12 am
looking at the term risk premium investors are paid to hold duration. that has been squashed to zero negative. the equity risk premium. betty: you still have to be careful. ben: some risk for sure. that is the inherent trade-off in equities versus bonds. betty: thank you so much. ben mandel. mark: coming up next, shares of intel falling after the company announced 12,000 job cuts. what's next for the world's biggest maker of semiconductors? more bloomberg markets ahead. ♪

growing share but growing the sport, making sure that motorcycling is a vital part of what people do in the united states. it is surprising people come a two to 3% of americans ride motorcycles. matt m.: globally sales were growing in the u.s.. quarter.we had a great strength in international, 4.5%. the u.s. marketplace right now is extremely competitive. it was all last year because of the strong dollar. non-us competitors able to price pretty aggressively which they did and they continue to do. at the same time there has been a lot of new product introduction in the motorcycle space. probably coming out of the downturn a lot of companies pulled back, got their feet under them, started launching new motorcycles and that is in the marketplace now so we have never seen a level of competitiveness that we saw in 2015 and our pitted to driving demand that we talked about in

10:39 am
the first billion-dollar ipo of this year. betty: you think it -- you think investors now are going to be more receptive to ipo's? will we see more in the near future? mr. stewart: it is hard for me to say. i think our own company has a number of unique, positive characteristics, which made the market more attractive for us. beyond that, it is hard to say what the perception would be beyond this. betty: james, you know, the back story on all of this is -- the ipo is not primarily because of this, but we know the activist investors had been pushing for mgm resorts to unlock more value. this is one move. they put out a statement earlier where they said "mgm resorts had taken a half step to unlock the volume of mgm. it is perfecting why ceo jim murren would not go all the way
10:40 am
and decisively unlock the inherent value in mgm resorts." what do you say? mr. stewart: i think the way we have done it is actually very creative, and an ingenious way that will turn to be positive for investors. the revenue of the company, which is the rent that mgm pays is covered 3.7 times by mgm resorts. part of the way we accomplished this incredibly large cushion to our rent payment is through keeping the mgm grand, the outside of the mgp portfolio. we have the full corporate guarantee from the cash-flowing power of those assets to guarantee our rent. i think it is a positive move, actually. betty: --

gp asset isies m gaining. more than 70% comes from the other fun things people do when they go to a resort. to the extent a great deal comes across my desk that i think fits for the 70, fits with what we want to do, -- for the company, fits with what we want to do, fits with what is happening already, i do not want to turn that way because the mandate is to narrow. betty: are you happy with the mix -- do you want to get gaming of more, or do you feel, like, in this economy, you want to reduce that portfolio? mr. stewart: is not a fundamental driver in any of our decisions. areind that as long as they ultimately creative to dividends and do not leverage us beyond a prudent measure, the mix is less important to me on the specifics of gaming or non-gaming. mark: -- betty: james, thank you. up, what the chief

so, the question -- you know, the needs -- have changed, so the company will have to change. erik: of all the things that are not strategic that you could do to improve the company, what is at the top of the list? mr. gonzalez anaya: there are some downstream activities that are not strategic. people can create land. erik: so that is what we should expect to see you do first? mr. gonzalez anaya: perhaps. i have to be careful with these things. we have to be careful with these announcements, but not strategic, downstream issues, are probably things we can move forward on. betty: and that was the pemex ao, was antonio gonzalez on -- hosea antonio gonzalez. taking passengers anywhere in the country at any time -- we will show you that next. ♪
