heard the banks say they wanted to bring time to the markets. it was only a slight majority of economists who were expecting the bank of japan to do something, this was really welcomed by the markets as a something of a surprise, you saw here the dollar fall with the yen increasing by 2.5%. ready big movement there. we also saw a movement and japanese stocks as well. is settingdecision the tone here to start of today's session. sending the stoxx 600 down. where one third of 1% lower. to industry groups arriving on the stoxx 600. a basic resources tracking metal higher. oil and gas tracking higher. no sopranos. it is a massive earnings day today. particularly for banks.
i will focus on three of them. deutsche bank posted a surprised profit. legal expenses dropped. trading businesses performed better. these are the investment led banks. as you can see, all four are in decline. by 20.e is down they're down by 30%. they have 13, comparable to the other two. the trend is very clear. the spanish lender is falling as much as 9%. today, it is the biggest report since march of 2009. they had a 54% drop in profits. a lower trading revenue. the one-time sale was never needed. very quickly, let's finish with the lloyds banking group. it was the largest mortgage lender.
yes, that was a bead of the coming cost. falling.as these are the big u.k. banks over the last 12. theou can see, lloyd is best performer. still, it is down by less than .92%. excuse to bring out the colors. betty: the colors, the line, everything. it's get the first word news today. bonnie news has more. came upnorth korea short in its attempt to file ballistic missiles. it was a week before the regime heard the first ruling party conference in less than six years. is expected to reach u.s. bases in japan and in long. launcheds successfully its first rockets from its new facility.
vladimir putin was on hand. they use a booster to blasted off. officials say the three satellites are orbiting. democratic presidential candidate bernie sanders will be laying off hundreds of paid campaign workers. it is further behind front-runner hillary clinton. he plans to redirect his remaining resources to california which holds its primary on june 7. the affordable care act will likely be shutting out more money next year. many tourists say the coverage has been a financial drain or them. it wave of insurers are already seeking premium increases. in virginia, nine insurers on healthcare.gov are asking for average price hikes ranging from 9% to 37%. and, the department of education has launched a new website to help people with student loans find their best repayment options. federal student loan debt will exceed $1.3 trillion.
website is student loan.gov/repaid. global news, 24 hours a day howard i are 2400 journalists. i am vonnie quinn. betty: thank you. let's get back to the market. first quarter has had a habit of coming week. earlier, we learned that 2016 is no exception. in up at the weakest pace two years. american consumers will tighten their belts. he is the chief strategist at j.p. morgan which is excellent at $7 trillion in assets. david, should we be worried that we grew less than we thought? >> no. those numbers were in line with the expect patient.
actions that the number might be weaker than that. the key thing to recognize is more to dig into the details. that number was pulled out by 710 of 1% because of a decline in energy spending. energy investment spending is down 17% from the peak. now it is at 40 billion. has a lot further to go. grew more slowly, but they also fell in terms of the growth rate. the weakness from inventories and energy investment spending, between them, they matched 1.1%. these are temporary factors. you know, when i look at the american economy, i say healthy tortoise. not a sick hair. that is a good metaphor. even if you can't explain those numbers, to some only bill gross , we are still dangerously on the precipice here of a collapse. whatt david to listen to
he said earlier about these numbers, and about the fed. eric: this is like musical chairs where we all wonder when this system, this artificial system might implode. and, for the most part, if the guessing game is extended to 2017, 18, 19. eddie: i see you shaking your head. growth, do youd just disagree with him? disagree witht everything. i do not think the economy will dislike lightly into a recession. it is not going to hit a tipping point. there is no excess anywhere. you get recessions when you have excess over collapses. we do not have that. economies -- expansions do not die of old age. think the expansion is to keep going.
the problem is that monetary policy is not artificially propping up the economy. all is so frustrating to me of my career is i know the first few rate hikes actually stimulate economic growth your whether it is the bank of japan, or europe having a negative interest-rate policy, all of it is actually slowing down aggregate demand. so, i think the economy can take your right type. unfortunately, the fed does not see through that lens heard we will be waiting a while for a rate hike. mark: david, if you is as healthy, what is that make it japan after the doj today? the majority of economists we survey before today were forecasting some form of the stimulus. >> i think the word stimulus should be banned in this context , because it does not stimulate
anything. japan was going to lose right away. if they are going to lose a negative interest-rate policy, they are counterproductive. they will only hurt the banks. if they do not do it, they will say you not do anything to reduce the value of the currency. we have to get away from this idea that zero interest rates or negative interest-rate tonight anything. they have negative labor force growth. but, most of all, they have to encourage dennis consumer confidence. this fiscal monetary system with the belief that the government will fix it, that is what i believe it is surprising the japanese economy and, to some extent the european economy also. mark: have we seen a complete dislocation between what the gop does and how the yen moves. have we seen them gain control of the currency once again. is there a surprise left in the
tank? >> i do not think they can. i never thought they could. the dollar went up 20% with the promise of an increase in base is. there is not a strong relationship between short-term interest rate differentials and exchange rate. japan, the u.s., europe and china need to do is take these exchange-rate policies. if they can it greet on a band that is acceptable, they can remove all of these exchange-rate currency. they can get out of writing this currency war. policy, when you look at monetary policy, it will not get to everyone here there is no disability there. i think there is a need to support that so they can get back to have an appropriate monetary policy. mark: thank you.
planesng -- retiring six . there a place of their chief executive after learning had a personal relationship with another employee. has resigned. he was the ceo it priceline for two years. he was replaced by the former ceo jeffrey boyd. that is your bloomberg business flash. we go straight to the market desks were julie hyman is looking at everything we have seen in the last few hours. julie: it was 45 alien dollars. three of the biggest earned one industry alone. health care is remarkable. to look at the heart device.

january. -- jeremy: we were surprised. we do not think it was the right thing to do. the stimulus announced in january it was very small. you feelthing to make like the inflation target was credible. so, we had those disappointments and economic growth. i think that the doj needed to be much more preemptive. mark: let's check out inflation. chart shows them excluding fresh food. biggest drop in three years. what will it take to get inflation banks to target? let's not forget the doj once again put back its estimate for the fourth time in a year. jeremy: sure.
the banks need to be much more aggressive. in theu have been stuck trap for as long as japan has been, the credibility of your actions is crucial. you keep disturbing the time when you hit your target. so, it seems you are reactive rather than proactive. it looks like you are doing a lot of damage. second, i think government policy needs to do more. both fiscally and on the structural reform front. problems not just limited to what the central the policy needs to be much more coordinated. betty: let's get into what happened with the central banks. read for you a side-by-side comparison with what the fed said. from last month to this past month.
they said "global economic and financial development continues to pose risks. then come and a statement from yesterday, the committee continues to closely monitor these indicators and financial development. so, what was your big take away when you saw that chain? jeremy: that was reasonable, given that some of the financial market has dissipated. the chinese economy may be going through much more slowly. it is still very clear. betty: they added inflation. jeremy: exactly. they are still aware that this is what they need to do. they have to monitor these developments quite carefully. so, with all the volatility in financial markets, when they start to see a growth the company second order, they start to prepare the ground for lifting interest rates again. i think it will be monitoring carefully what impact that has on the financial market. though, they have been trapped
in a negative feedback loop. they start to sound more hawkish and the dollar depreciates. the stressed financial markets fall. that slows the financial expectation. betty: it does. what is challenging to just take a look at the numbers this slowng, you had first-quarter growth. but, you have a job claim continuing to fall. so, what is going on here? jeremy: it is a disconnect between the labor market and the economy. are some temporary factors that slow growth. first, the stress and the financial market has had an impact on consumer spending. mandatory slowdown in the first quarter. we expect that to start to change. on thegest puzzle is
consumer side. because, we have had a big improvement in real income growth. consumers remain cautious. the assumption is that stocks will pick up in the second quarter. if it does not, we can probably expect the labor markets to slow. remember, the labor market is a lagging indicator of growth. betty: thank you. at standardist investment. still ahead, we'll talk exclusively with the ceo of cbre group the largest commercial real estate company. out with their latest. being estimates on revenue and profit. that is on bloomberg markets. ♪

probably better than people realize. fundamentals are rental rates and occupancies. also, something that was really important for us was that we took market share with the majority the markets we are in across the product line. so, it was very satisfying. mark: are those fundamentals going to remain a 2016? or, will you continue to greg shares as well? well come we think the fundamentals will remain strong. again, the fundamentals i'm talking about our occupancy and rental rate. -- expect interest rates around the world to be stable. we expect relatively slow economic growth. that is fine. are goinghat things to play out well. we saw some choppiness in the first couple months of the first quarter that were tied to the financial markets. that seems to have settled down. as it relates to us continuing to take market share.
we have done a number of things of our business over the last few years. we added a lot of talent to people. with technology and other capabilities that are really helping us to take market shares. and, we did the big acquisition last year with our outsourcing business. been very helpful to us in serving our clients. i want a look at the largest commercial real estate markets. you mentioned some of the volatility that we have seen with some of our prices. we have a chart here. you will not be able to see it. prices haveshow how fallen. it looks like the peak in the not look 2014, it does like things are stabilizing. it means when you look at the chart for commercial real estate prices. what will happen here come in ew york? mark: you have some of the
highest rental rates and history of the market. we have seen good absorption. week spent -- expect rental rates to go up. one of the things you might be seen is that there is some concern with trophy asset. the biggest most expensive assets that there has been less demand for those assets due to uncertainty in the financial markets. it is the case that we have seen less activity around the sales of those assets. on, weas the quarter war saw things get better in that regard. in real estate fundamental new york are strong. we expect that over the next few years, united dates will only be at 3% of what is in the base of the space now. one of the really good things happening in the new york market is that there is a big growth and tech workers.
we have always had the big financial companies there. is market for the jobs really strong. we think that will be a sustainable advantage. betty: i'm glad you bring up that aspect. as valuations go down, as financing becomes harder to these tech companies, are you worried that there will be a spill out onto the commercial mark: what market? we look at as a result of what is going on the tech market is job growth. then can we have a secondary statistically look at. that is in regards to how much sublease space has been made available. there has been only a small pickup in the sublease space. so, there are no negative signs there. they have solid hiring. we think things are the less you work this year, than they were last year.
but, the tech market is here to stay. new york city is moving more in that direction. so, we think of course that needs to be watched. we are not seen any real red flags. mark: i want to ask you about the u.k.. with the big referendum about to take place, what it impact would a break for the u.k. to the eu to leave the ua for the u.k. go to the rate market? there has been a lot written about that. a lot of it expresses this concern. what we have seen is uncertainty in the market. the june voteis approaches, people will cause a little bit. they had to vote in the negative with owners and potential buyers figuring out what it means for the market. the thing to know about the london property market it is
big. there is not a lot of space being added relative to the size of the market. the best companies in the world want to be there. the workforce that is emerging around the world wants to be in cities like london and like new york. long-term prospects for london. they have good capital. we may see a pause or a concern. long, that is a good real estate market. it will continue to be one of the best. betty: thank you, bob. thank you so much. good to see. much more ahead on the earnings run. execution for e-commerce. we will talk about what is driving growth.
betty: i'm here in new york. earnings rolled in this morning. the company posted first-quarter profits that exceeded estimates. that is thanks to a strong supply of u.s. packages. however, revenue came in lower than expected. let's go through these results with richard. he is here. good to have you on the program. so, let's start with a little more high-level and broad. which is what you are seeing in the u.s. economy now. visit feel like it is going to get better in the second half your? -- year?
rich: we're seeing a tale of two cities. we are continuing to support the is a lightere shining through. industrial production still is not there. is outgrowingce the physical retailers. that is something we have seen the last few years. the interesting thing for ups is that when you bring it all together, what we call be -- be it started to blur the lines. we are those deliveries through e-commerce. betty: what does that mean for business? rich: that means we grow business and have the opportunities we talked about in the business to business where industrial production would've been the chief driver of growth. now, the b2c is driving our commerce. that is because of the return services.
things we call access points. allows customers to pick up packages near other homes. it all drives a volume to physical retail location. up as a looks and shows business-to-business package. issues with the last month or so is that there certain to build their own age. how much of a thread is that for the likes of ups? amazon is an important customer. we have many important customers every day. what the ups offers is such a great proposition not only for amazon, but for all of our customers with density when you bring all this packages together. is what we want to make sure that we are the shipper of choice for all of our customers. because of things like access points. my choice, which allows the end user to communicate with ups around choice, control, and convenience. we bring it all together with a value proposition that ups
offers is available not only for amazon, but for every company out there participating. i want to speak about m&a because you are aware of the unconditional of ruvell from eu regulators to buy the rivals the end he expressed. it is something you tried a few years ago. regulators said no. rich: back a few years ago when we are looking at that property, things that is important to understand is that we had that strategy. the big thing for ups is that we continue to win in the europe market. have now saved a $2 million investment. we have those facilities looking at something like 70 new buildings. build marketo share. the important thing to remember is that our business internationally had our fifth consecutive order. thead the best yields on
per package basis that we have seen in over two years. we feel like we are heading our cylinders. we are very deliberate about our strategy and where we are taking a business. we feel like that is most important. how are you managing fuel costs. you have seen oil go down. it is into the 40's. it has been over an up-and-down roller coaster. has beenatility something we have not seen for many years. what we tend to think about mostly is about reported revenue lines. we do have a fuel surcharge that acts as a natural heritage. the only difference is that there is a two-month lag from the real price. there is a noise. at the end of the day, it does not have much of an impact on profit. because come along what we're trying to do is normalize fuel by having a surcharge. can manage the volatility that way more
responsibly. are you sensitive to the swing in the price of oil? i know you have certain numbers where you are calculating if oil hits here, we will adjust our business this way. doesn't work that way? , they founds customers tend to look differently at which products they use. the beauty of our network is that one year, and might be second, and the next week to make the next day air. because, the fuel surcharge and the ad on, the price has changed. we do not wait at these kind of levels. more customers might move away from the air products. because of the integrated benefit andwill deliver a product that is good for our customers and meets their expectations. we tend to use different products for different times. fuel its elf, because of the way is handled is not really a big
indicator or really something we are worried about other than when he gets into an extreme high. mark: thank you for joining us today. financial officer of ups. betty: still ahead, home sales in the hamptons. over a year, they had a three-year low. we will talk about the market for oceanfront homes. jonathan miller, the ceo of miller sandals.
hamptons. actually feel a guy have heard the story for the last few years. is there anything different this time around? john: i think the housing market link closely to wall street in manhattan. what i saw on manhattan a year ago was a drop in activity year over year. we are seeing that now in the hamptons. hamptons is the city for about a year. the way they look at it, sales are the lowest they win. so, essentially, the volume that is occurring now is pretty consistent with the long-term average. it almost argued that is returning to some sort of normalize level, even though there -- we're not sure. betty: what is the price point and where is it?
john: north of the $5 million threshold. that is where manhattan has been quieting of of a the market. what you're seeing, and what is really interesting is that after the financial crisis, what you're seeing is the ski towards the end of the year sales occurrence of a $5 million. before the financial crisis, it was sort of random. it is clearly becoming the year and activity. mark: you say that the hamptons and wall street, that they are bedfellows. buyers dealerseas with the oil-rich nations, the chinese, russians to name a few. john: there has been a lot of activity over the last few years from international buyers. largely, it has been out of europe. , likereally the europeans
a good part of the eastern seaboard, we're seeing a lower level of international volume. partly because of the stronger dollar. the hamptons is no exception to that. mark: is it time to buy? john: that is on the questions that is unique to every individual out there. i think what you're seeing is that you're already seen people buy. you're just seeing it at a more normal rather than this frenetic pace we have for the last few years which was the result of pent-up demand crisis. so, give us a sense specifically, the numbers like how much and where in the hamptons, and where and hamptons do they have all these towns? where exactly is the works? john: the way to think about it is on a price point level. the average sale for the hamptons was around $2 million. that was the highest in the
first quarter number in eight years. pricing outhink of there is that sales activity is down. pricing is virtually flat. it is moving sideways on a year-over-year basis. i would anticipate the same thing going or written over the year. that we are not seen this rise in a price like we have before. betty: are they buying anywhere else? competitorse of the as palm beach. i guess that if you're driving from the city, it is not that dissimilar. betty: i was just saying that come from new jersey. they seven mark comes, i will take him there. jonathan, thank you so much. close,oming up on the
deutsche bank. capitalbuild up the one. betty: kerry duffy, we will talk about potential growth from the largest future operator. mark, professional writers of david love and darren smart. will you take tips for your golf swing? mark: my golf swing is beyond repair. nobody can make it better. i cannot wait to speak with them.
