of tomorrow's statement. >> and apple reports after the bell. is the iphone the gift that will stop giving to apple's bottom line? ♪ david: a warm welcome to bloomberg go. i'm jonathan ferro alongside david westin. david: it's good to be here. i read your newsletter for years and benefited from it. welcome. we will also hear from eli lilly's ceo. and roger goodell talking about the business of the nfl. and may be the tom brady decision yesterday. the markethead of
7:01 am
opener, let me give you the global scorecard. the dax is slightly negative. futures of little bit positive in the u.s. just a weaker dollar story here once again. cable keeps creeping higher as well. and crude as well. let's cross over to matt miller for the stocks to watch. matt: procter beating earnings estimates. gamble beating earnings estimates. ofare looking for a mean $.82. sales of $15.8 billion.
7:02 am
you can see procter & gamble moving up 2% in the premarket. this is one of a slew of companies reporting earnings today. 40 nine companies are reporting in the s&p 500 alone. 500.almost 10% of the s&p 1.3 billionr at euros. chrysler beating as well on the earnings side. missing the estimate of 27.8 billion. beating on earnings and missing on sales. t-mobile coming out, beating the street. a 7th street corridor of adding a million new customers for t-mobile.
7:03 am
adding customers at a pretty quick pace. whirlpool also coming out with earnings. you can see whirlpool actually moving down in the premarket. which is merging with dow chemical and firing 10% of its workers boosted its full-year earnings outlook. doing better but decimating the staff. the company is down 1%. eli lilly reporting sales that topped estimates. the drugmaker said it had a net income of $.41 a share. they are really unchanged in the premarket. a moment.overseas for the overseas earnings have been driving futures here this morning. surging.chartered
7:04 am
capital increased more than analysts had estimated. the stock is up 11% in london trading. surprised people today with a profit. they made about $532 million and that drove shares higher. what does this say for the other majors that announced earnings? ryan chilcott joins us from london. what does this tell us about the oil industry? >> i think it's pretty indicative. the business models for the largest five oil companies are pretty similar. with a oil but they also refine oil -- theyan't pump oil but they also refine it.
7:05 am
it was really on the refining and trading side where they did a lot better. refining -- the differences between france's oil company, they have a larger refining operation. did not do as poorly as many were anticipated. trading in the first quarter was very volatile. when it comes to the european oil companies all of them have pretty sizable trading operations. so they should benefit if they do properly. david: a good story made for a not as bad story on taking the oil to the ground but they also cut costs didn't they? >> they did. they reported they had spent about $4 billion. that puts them on track for $16 billion this year. of 15ould hit a range
7:06 am
million -- $15 billion to $17 billion this year. they have been cutting costs aggressively. david: thanks for joining us. jonathan: fascinating cost management story. these big oil companies may be a little more nimble than we thought they were. jonathan: they can tolerate lower cost, they can boost supply as well. on energy a lot equity, but the debt market just phenomenal. matt miller. you pointed this out to us this morning. you can see the euro denominated debt is now trading with a negative yield. we are looking at negative seven basis points. this is the dollar denominated debt.
7:07 am
huge spread here. pointed out the driving force behind this is the ecb. we can look at the yellen-draghi spread. this is an investment grade energy company -- it's phenomenal. >> it's extraordinary. we have never been here before. this is new water. when the central bank takes nexusyield, the basic reserve here -- it pulls down all yield's. marketplace in the has to realize their portfolio. many of these players by law have to own certain types of bonds regardless of the yield and this is an example. you and i would not voluntarily
7:08 am
by a negative yield bond. i wouldn't. i'm not sure about you. but why are people doing that? why do 7 trillion and growing every month of negative yield debt in the world -- growing every month. because it's forced into the market place because of this nerf policy. it's called fixed income because you get some kind of income there. i'm not getting income. for corporate that is great news. for me as an investor, it just becomes an outright bet. we think that you realign overtime your entire view of allocating assets. if you can't -- what do you do if you're an insurance company in europe and you have a sleeve
7:09 am
you must own sovereign debt? you have to own it by law. you buy it with a negative yield. then you have to make an adjustment somewhere else but asset classes -- asset classes are realigned. and investors have trouble with that. it's counterintuitive. david: also from the company's point of view -- if you are a cfo or treasurer you are constantly making decisions about how to raise capital. this really skews toward long-term debt. david: it also says, go borrow as much as you can for nothing and figure out something to do with it. and they are doing it. jonathan: look at what's happening in the energy sector. bp is cutting spending. they are actually cutting spending. this goes way beyond energy. they are not going to invest in fixed income no matter what the price is. just to carry on buying back
7:10 am
stock. with central banks focused on the price of money, when are we going to change the way we look at what's happening here? david: we are seeing it in japan. japan has moved in a huge way. look at the holdings of japanese stocks by the central bank. it's remarkable. they can never sell them. they have to hold them. imagine what the front run would be if you had to announce to the market, we are going to be selling stock. ofs is a permanent position an equity investor by a central bank. matt: we were chatting with david and the effect on treasuries and the spread between the u.s. 10 year in white. you can see the spread. use that chart to visually demonstrate something
7:11 am
we do internally. pulls downw nerp positive yields. the widening spread shows that. david: you just said permanent. it's not just that it affects everyone's yields everywhere. you believe it has a long-lasting effect. david: there is no way out. when you own this kind of structure -- think about it for a minute. digress for a minute. years from fed four quarter point one hike last december. crazy and we had a quarter-point hike after four years. imagine what it will take to taper back up to zero. we are in zero interest rates are lower for the rest of this
7:12 am
decade. and that is reallocating asset prices in ways we have never seen. jonathan: important question. i have had so many people come and they would say, 25 basis points does not matter. this is a picture is market and economy so geared towards low rates, it's the idea that they can't get a tightening cycle towards anything that looks like a normal rate historically. they just cannot get away from beginning hike. mentioned 25 and that deals with the spread. the other issue is the level. the third piece is that in is thehe base rate lowest negative rate. the positive is the highest. in the u.s., it's the excess reserve. in europe, it is the lowest.
7:13 am
25 basis points adjusted on either side is a monumental widening of spread. jonathan: david kotok is with us. join us at 1:00 p.m. eastern in new york. let's cross over to vonnie quinn. the presidential front-runners have a chance to win five primaries in the northeast today. the only oneis left in the republican race who can reach the number of delegates needed for the nomination. he could win the rest of the primaries and still come up short. hillary clinton winning today's races would leave little doubt that she is the nominee. in the u.k., jr. doctors in the national health service are on a two day all-out strike. they will refuse to provide emergency care. they are unhappy over their pay
7:14 am
and conditions. senior doctors will step in to cover. it's another hit to malaysia's reputation. the country's development fund has defaulted on a $1.8 billion bond. already ata fund is the heart of investigations over claimed it was used to funnel money to politically connected individuals. 1mdb has denied any wrongdoing. i'm vonnie quinn. jonathan: a busy day. standard chartered kicks off earnings season. those surprising results after the break. we will be talking to eli on their earnings announcement this morning. ♪

7:17 am
jonathan: good day to the city of london. up .3%. 100 bank earnings kicking off in europe with quarterly results from standard chartered. more i want to go to richard partington in london. headline numbers and thought, why is the stock popping so much? that's the story this morning. absolutely. there was a big drop in revenue this morning. it's a huge amount for a company to be down by. the loan impairment -- investors
7:18 am
have been very scared that this growingwas posted impairments on bad loans as well as slowing economic growth in asia. it wasn't as bad as expected. david: there was also a beat on the tier one capital ratio. how important was that? >> absolutely. is somethingtal investors in banks around the world are fixated on at the moment. it rose to around 13% and that is a good level. the capital really dictates how strong the balance sheet is and how much dividends this institution can pay when it has finished its turnaround program in a couple of years time. jonathan: we are always looking for a read across. hsbc is trading higher as well. it's a natural read across from
7:19 am
these numbers this morning. >> there is to a degree. operate in similar markets. hsbc has been the incumbent of scale. standard chartered has grown predominantly over the past 10 years. hsbc is much more conservative on its lending practices. it often lends to the oil super majors as well. standard chartered being the plucky underdog has perhaps had some less quality in its lending. however there is some read across. not to a great degree but there is some. david: david kotok, we hear all the time negative interest rates low interest rates are hurting banks. evidence that a bank stock pops and there is a positive surprise. and we are seeing more of that. is there a changing sentiment on banks that you can sense the read across that john just talked about in a broadway?
7:20 am
-- broad way? has been a big rebound in bankshares. certainly standard chartered is the only u.k. institution now to be in positive territory. there has been some discrimination. there are banks where investors just are not buying this story from the executives leading them. for example, barclays, credit squeeze -- credit suisse, deutsche bank. this environment of negative interest rates -- there are institutions where perhaps the worst is now behind them. forward buty road they are certainly on the mend. jonathan: richard partington, thank you very much. chartered in positive territory for the year by just 3%. a question for bill winters, an

7:32 am
of their company, it compares very favorably. that's an hour from now. jonathan: the other decision we need to look out for is the boj this week. concluding a two-day policy meeting on thursday or the governor is under pressure to improve monetary stimulus. francine lacqua joins us from london. about currency wars and politicians getting involved' -- and central bank independence. francine: i don't know if it's a case study on how to do it or not to do it. we had a great interview with governor kuroda back in davos. three days after that boom he surprises the markets with negative rates. the problem he has now is does he surprise on thursday when boj meets? i suspect he will look at what janet yellen says tomorrow.
7:33 am
the policies given by central banks is that -- we certainly talk about divergence. anything the fed will do will impact the boj and governor kuroda. been talkinghave about is out of all the central seemsin the world it governor kuroda is probably the strongest at doing everything independently. the ecb has a lot of members it has to please. governor kuroda seems to want to try the limits of central bank monetary policy. jonathan: and he has done that. when it went to negative rates it was very slim margin. when they boosted stimulus in late 2014 it was the same. me about all of this is when politicians get that immensee saw japanese yen strength couple weeks back.
7:34 am
today the prime minister's economic advisor is saying this week's meeting is the perfect time to do more because they can be preemptive and surprised the market. do you think politicians should be getting this involved? francine: we have the same debate here in europe with the german politicians always giving a lot of flak to the ecb. german politicians say, we respect the independence of a central bank but as politicians we also need to tell people what we think. what's interesting about japan is economics is not really quite working to the extent that the prime minister wanted because of structural reform. they are relying probably even more than the ecb on monetary policy. they have a strengthening yen. that's a concern. as the boj comes more -- does more, we need to look at balance
7:35 am
rates because of negative . jonathan: thank you, francine lacqua. david, 93% of the 41 economists surveyed by bloomberg expected more from the boj by the end of july. david: exactly. and it in the fed, it's almost the reverse. the market is not believing. 0% chance for this meeting coming up this weekend only 20%. we now have carl riccadonna. we enjoy him immensely and david kotok from cumberland. what can we expect? >> the fed has limited real estate to telegraph a new message. there are no forecast updates. all they really have is the four paragraphs or so of the meeting statement. the economic assessment is fairly straightforward.
7:36 am
moderate to downgrade growth and consumer spending to reflect recently reported data. we need to focus on in reading the tea leaves of the statement is the balance of risks. -- has been always suspended for the last two meetings. if it remains a suspended that means it's very difficult to get to the point for june meeting is actually in play. that shows it in they are really angling and trying to keep june in play. and continue to acknowledge these global and financial risks creating so much uncertainty -- i think the odds will start to take to if they want to have multiple increases the next move will have to be in july. david: we have seen changes in rhetoric. charles evans out of chicago. normally very dovish. now sending signals and warnings.
7:37 am
you think that gets incorporated in this statement? >> absolutely relevant and worth watching. are makingthe doves the argument to lean into the wind and push against market expectations amid a flurry of weak economic data that is telling you something. narrowing ofn this the view. we have seen moderate hawks reining in their rhetoric and we have seen dubs talking a tougher line. is not going that to be satisfied with just one rate hike. they're are going to develop this reputation of one hike per year and they don't want that. for two.still pushing jonathan: you just mentioned leaning into the wind. they truly believe that the federal reserve takes of you at this meeting to ts up to take a tee us up to--
7:38 am
take a move in june. live meetings or they seriously getting around the table to communicate a hike in june? >> they hate for a meeting not to be viewed as a live meeting. this meeting is -- not dead but pretty darn close to it. livewant it to at least be . it will depend on the tone of the economic data. is likely tok q1 be they really need to see convincing data that the economy has rebounded significantly in the second quarter. david: what did you find? often brings it back to currency story. blue youmovement -- in have the emerging markets
7:39 am
currency index. in white the all country index. you can see the dollar strength pushing these currencies down. then the fed lowers its forecast for hikes. the market had been feeling that the fed was backing off a little even before that. the dollar this year has underperformed any major currency excluding maybe what is the pound. jonathan: the pound has been terrible. kotok, it is one thing to say does may be getting more hawkish. they may even go further in that direction to really have that kind of different regions is going to really recap it. reallyrgence is going to wreak havoc. rateme form of negative policy -- that's roughly one
7:40 am
fourth of the gdp of the world. negative rates. u.s. trying to goose operates one fourth of the world positive and the other half of the world is lowering interest rates more than raising the and they are peripheral to negative rates. this is a massive tug-of-war. we are in a tug-of-war. you had the ecb and the boj really pushing and creating a lot of pressure. the pressure valve was the dollar. the fed allowed the dollar to play that role. the fed is not doing that anymore. the reason the dollar has weakened is not because we all that comfortable with the idea of the shallow rate path, it's because the said has backed away. this pointd say at is that the fed has pretty much
7:41 am
said they no longer want to play as the pressure valve in the market. at this point the fed cannot move. it is cornered by the market. david: if it moves, what does it do? the dollar, gets pushed back u.s. economic forces, and it flattens the yield curve. the yield curve is getting flatter. we are looking at the short-term rate. thesestribution of all interest rates are flattening if the fed moves up a quarter. they were flat and more. >> the fed is not refusing to play the pressure valve. they are refusing to play the patsy. this goes back to the fomc meeting of last year. janet yellen told the markets she is not going to tolerate a remarkably strong dollar that's going to clobber the manufacturing sector and u.s. workers in any multinational industry. march anded that in

8:16 am
important information because a lot of companies can be good at guidance. the question is can they be the numbers compared to how they did last year? you will see that earnings are down 8% compared to the same quarter last year and sales are down three quarters of 1% compared to the same quarter last year. it is amazing. the top line cannot the massage but the bottom line typically can be and they are not doing that well. it is also interesting to look through and see which sectors these are coming from. you would assume energy is having the toughest time and you would be right. down 60% compared to where they of lastthe same quarter year. e-mail not expect financials to have missed by so much. ago 16% compared to a year and sales that banks are down 4.5%. financials, as well as energy, are the big problems and they are big heavily weighted sectors so they will drag on the index with the exception of the fact

it is in the best interest of the nfl. the twitter deal is a new deal, a $10 million deal to stream 10 games. how important is that to the future of the nfl, the new digital? is important.k it you are aware of the changes in the media world. they are significant and evolving. we feel the foundation of our success has been being available to the broadest possible audience. we have great cable partners. we want to continue to expand and reach those consumers and those fans consuming on their if a tablet or a phone or any other kind of device we want to be there with those devices and our content. this is a very good opportunity for us to do that we think it will support our broadcast audience but we think this is something the future is very important to us to be involved

8:39 am
a good idea. is that an expansion as you grow down the road? ther: we have been on record and oppose legalized gambling. we do not think it is in the best interest of the integrity of the game. we know fans want to know that when they are watching the game, they are seeing the real thing and there's nothing influencing by outside -- outside forces. we take this seriously. we have a strong policy the area. we plan to continue that. also, as the ceo of a big company, one thing the ceo does is think about larger potential strategic threat. the concussion situation, the brain injury situation, has an in the press a lot here in you had a settlement with a large number of former players. tell me where you are in dealing with the issue and how much is that to the game itself? roger: we focus on how we operate the business and more importantly the rules of the
8:40 am
game, the equipment of the game, what we have for strong players. we need to keep this a number one priority for our players, our game, going into the future, and not just on our level. when we make changes that the impact ons an college, high school, and you football. the awareness we brought about how to handle concussion injuries, it is really important to us. we reached an agreement well over a year. any of the former players and families who have a neurological issue, created by football or any other factor, they have what is available to them. we like now that the court of appeals has approved this, we would like to get started and get those benefits to former players as soon as possible.
8:41 am
forward, is it your view the players know there is a risk so you have further liability? roger: because of the awareness with head injuries in all of contact sports, i think everyone understands the risk to repeated head injuries, particularly if they are not managed properly. that is with the nfl is leading the way on. conservativee a approach to identify them, deal with them, and issue a real calls for change. players reporting their own injuries, that is good for the game long-term. it is the for athletes that play any sports or make sure it is properly treated. any great ceo thinks about what comes after him or her. succession is one of the main things for a great ceo.
8:42 am
i'll will not ask you today to declare when you will leave, but you must be thinking about the process. what are you doing to ensure that the nfl continues well after you're gone? roger: i agree i think the strength of an organization is if it can carry on. can the people step into roles and drive the organization forward and adjust issues we undoubtedly will have going forward? great team with great young people. work on developing those every day. part of my job is to make sure for everybody and organization, including yours truly. my job is to make sure they have the right experience and the right opportunity to see that. you came up through the ranks and started as an intern. butowners get to decide
8:43 am
would you anticipate that your successor would come from within the nfl? roger: i do because i think the complexity of the organization is unique in the way we operate. we are not like any other where i dictate essentially and a big issue we deal with. i have a back and get 24 or 32 owners to approve. it is like a big board in some ways, but it is a great asset for us because of we can find a solution, working with our ownership, that 30 -- 32 owners actually support, i think we have got a pretty good solution. it is a great system and it is proven -- has proven to be a foundation of our success. i expected someone who fills the role after me will have to respect them understand that and be able to operate in that kind of environment. david: thank you for being with us. good to see you. jonathan: fascinating interview.

8:49 am
rather than historic margins. the market has been trained to think these are good times to sell. there has been concern as to the quality of the incremental credit entering the market at 17 or 18 million. the increasings consideration of the industry is the target of technological distraction. are puttingstors that into the terminal value. you are a vanguard of analysis when it comes to technological disruption. do you see investment opportunity here? globaluld highlight our mobility, recently publishing a blue paper and dressing that, the technological distraction and reinventing how investors should look at the market instead of units sold, but miles traveled, with the value of around 10 joined he dollars globally, or 15% of gdp, excluding the value of time. a really big market. we struggled to find investment

opportunities from within the auto sector. i highlight within my u.s. coverage names like tesla motors, relatively well positioned, but you have to pay a big premium to get in or get on board. and then names like fiat , they arend ferreri so detached from the disruption in a way, because they have other strategic objections, we think they are in their own world. not that many fundamental winners here. isn't it a special case? it is a luxury goods maker more than a carmaker, right? >> it is not transportation, it is human driving pleasure. silicon valley firms that are attacking the transportation industry and looking to monetize get rid time, trying to of the kinds of experience that for already -- fried provides. they are going after 95% of the

8:52 am
have nearly unlimited budgets and in many cases, markets that are petering out. they want to go for the auto industry, 100 hundred billion dollar markets. matt: we see them open an office in silicon valley. gm has a partnership with lift. they're looking to get their hands into the pie. what will be the winner in the end? what is the motive just rotation we will all use in 10 years? >> we think it is a combination of autonomous, shared, and electric pair at any advancement in state-of-the-art, any of the three independent tech technologies, helps accelerate the other two. using it more than 1% utilization helps really fortize the upfront costs the battery infrastructure that up to now has not worked out well.

it exactly played out today. to do good.inues the corporate sector, the sixth straight quarter of negative growth. is hard to spend on inventory and hiring. i think what the fed is doing now if you include the rest of the world, it is exactly the right thing. you have to be a bit patient around the dollar because of the influence run the world, it is so profound. jonathan: i want to talk about fed communication. a room full of phd's, it has been reduced right now and one statement comes tomorrow. i one paragraph and one line. -- a one paragraph and one line. this rick lee -- read the tea leaves or stick to what he knows

estimates. $100 million in risky assets which had its first annual loss since 1989 last year. it actually dropped. does this go to the point, i will not use the word stunning around in china, at least it is stabilizing to some extent? look at non-performers not growing significantly within the banking system globally, you have postponed and you have to take capacity out of the system. push it back. we will because of the influence on labor. that being the case, we think there will be more defaults and more defaults in asia. of i think the rate acceleration on those defaults will probably be pushed off of it because the growth is so much better.
9:12 am
>> we are starting to see actual defaults. some of them are state owned enterprises. it is not just private enterprises. we will not necessarily stay by all of this. >> it is to signals. yes, you have to change the way two, the leverage is a big part of the issue. where you will continue to see some pressure going forward, as well as in some other corpus and particularly the corp. is in the area where you have got to get capacity out. i have a chart that may make investors think twice about what is going on in standard chartered. ratio total, it goes back to two thousand seven, financial crisis, and all of a sudden the sudden, what is this? nonperforming loans as a ratio of total loans are approaching 5%. that was last quarter's data. the nonperforming low ratio
9:13 am
increased 4.9% in the fourth quarter. is just coming up. it has got to be scary. to help you out with that story without actually talking directly about it, standard chartered was a company's years ago that people said, euro -- eurozone banks dad and this bank is good. those investors ended up holding something they did not want to it has been difficult for a lot of people told the stock. income,e to go to your typically you would not go to if you do not have to. people end up holding the stuff they should not be holding? great question. it does not make a lot of sense. it will be a losing transaction, no doubt. in japan, purchasing negative rate bonds has been a fruitful

9:32 am
about fiat chrysler. he says this is a company that has not been able to keep up with the technology. marchionne has always said better late than wrong when it comes to a cars. the stock down. earlier -- wase down earlier. we will check that later. david: apple will report its earnings. in january, it warned it will probably have a revenue dropped. --t would be the third time the first time that 13 -- aligned our be the first time in 13 years revenues dropped. gene munster joins us now from minneapolis. and we still have rick rieder here. i want to go to jean -- gene. explain your view on apple. i think everyone agrees it is a great company.
9:33 am
the question that strikes me is growth and valuation. gene: it is not as high as a growth story as it used to be, is reflectingion and even lower growth rates. the iphone will be down 15% in the march quarter, and it should be up 7% in the december quarter. we think the multiple will expand, going into reasonable growth. on top of that, you have the services business, which is a new aspect to the story. and is higher growth substantially higher profitability. the combination of those will be a positive for the stock. david: when you talk about services, i assume you're talking things that are sufficient-based. that is a change for apple. i think of it as a hardware company. change. is a
9:34 am
the basic idea is they are finding ways to monetize the specificallytem, in their services business, you talked about itunes music. the app store is the biggest part of it. there is also the itunes and applecare and apple pay. the combination of those experiences around ios. those are more sustainable. it is not the hit and miss in more of product cycles, about our everyday engagement in the apple platform. that is why it should have a higher multiple. i think they are just getting disclosures around that. we will get increasing disclosures, which should be positive for the valuation. >> one of the things i have been truly amazed why is the amount companycash flow the throws off that i would argue is a store and to keep margins where they are.
9:35 am
where you would think margins would compress over time. is that sustainable? can you continue that over the long term? the next fewy over years. it is sustainable. investors expected margins to come down the next five years, and that has not happened. gross margins have been around 40% the entire time. there is debate whether or not to have a branded car, that would be an example that would open a large market that would be punitive to their margins. as far as sustainability around the margins of the iphone, we feel good about that. but the broader topline growth story could be negative to margins longer-term. matt: i am looking at the cash and seeing $215 billion in cash and equivalents. is this the kind of war chest they need to build a car? gene: it is.
9:36 am
they have a lot of debt as well. if you look at the net cash, it is more like $160 billion. still a huge amount. that is the type of money they will need to be more aggressive in auto or in augmented reality. that is the type of thing that mark zuckerberg is intense about. tontually, apple will have replace the iphone. that could cause a large of -- a large amount of investment. the massive buckets they will spend money on is augmented reality and auto. through thet me earnings release. if eyes strip out iphone cells, which will always make the headlines, what is the one metric you will be looking for? gene: it has to be the iphone. or upside ofine that. also, the guidance -- the streak
9:37 am
is looking at around $47 billion in the june quarter. we expect a 2% guide down. that is a symptom of the hardcopy -- hard compds. -- comps. is interesting you talk about the services side, then you talk about cars and augmented reality. you have not talked about the iphone seven now. does that mean you do not expect anything major in fall? gene: exactly. we think this will be a nominal upgrade. it will have the effect of returning the iphone to growth, because there is an and go affect where people who bought iphones two years ago will upgrade with this cycle. and it will gain market share with that. the big reason people upgrade their phone is not because of some killer feature. the reason is their contracts their phones are
9:38 am
slowing, and they need their phone. rateigh 90% retention needs to be intact. jonathan: is that path enough to have the target has? is 133.ensus what justifies your price target now? from what i have heard, we did not really hear enough. wee: from our perspective, think the multiple will expand. the question is how much and what justifies that? ourevaluation is based on 18 time the 2009 estimate. inthink that is justified part because as the iphone returns to growth and investors become confident it will turn into the multiple. perspective, this is 10% of the revenue grown and operatingith a 15%

9:49 am
happening, is the selling genera unmatured has been pressing margins. the cost of labor is also moving up. it is a natural dynamic that you have to start pressuring costs sunraysless you see reason topline revenue will accelerate significantly. with some better numbers the weakness of the dollar and some of the dynamics about china and the international growth. but no doubt, you have to keep costs down in this environment. david: which is hard. companies have it easier increasing cost been decreasing costs. hiring people is easier than getting rid of people, as a practical matter. but if you do not grow your top line, it does not say much about global growth. rick: part of why we talk about why the fed is probably right to
9:50 am
be patient. if your top line is not growing, capital orgrow hiring. that is where we will be for a wild. will is only one thing price growth higher. it is a discussion about fiscal and infrastructure. i that when my boss talks about it tomorrow, more and more we think you will see the dialogue change away from monetary policy. things like infrastructure. things that will create durable growth and put people to work and create a more consistent growth paradigm. passing rates for the negative will not do it. jonathan: is that not the last thing they want? inflation in the likes of japan? rick: then who? jonathan: anyone who was sitting on 2% of gdp. rick: it is all about relativity. the hard thing is when you are running the debt pile, when you
9:51 am
are in a deflationary cycle, that debt becomes more expensive. you want to have deflation run. we can live in a world where moderate growth -- inflation will not be as high, because technology gets so significant -- but you cannot have a deflationary cycle with so much debt. it is white jockey -- why draghi presses on it. you need inflationary expectations to be positive to get companies spending. not too positive. you do not want to deteriorate your currency. .hat is the worst of all worlds you want reasonable growth. you want nominal gdp to replace where you can de-lever the economy. obviously they want growth to pick up here but can you grow out of a situation where your debt is 200% of gdp?
9:52 am
and you go from -10 basis points to a more normal level around 3% to 5%, that would ruin japan, wouldn't it? rick: the other dynamic as you have a demographic -- david: bring productivity into this. rick: the headwinds in japan are probably the strongest. the manufacturing dynamic. so what do you do? it is one of the few places in the world where you have the neck and is in. that is the only thing that works. you have to have structural reform, fiscal initiatives, and easing on the monetary side. the challenge is arguably bigger than any other part of the world. it is going to be hard. really tricky going forward. it is all about can you let the margin do things like postpone the back tax and get a little growth?
