not seem like that big a deal but the market moved off from there. we have the meeting, the first one in march and then it was the new york economics club that surprised everybody. the fed really pulled back and we expected rates not to rise today. but the real news is what is happening to the dollar. we would say it is a policy mistake for the dollar to continue to go further. by janet yellen stepping back, i would take june, a rate hike, and not only the equity markets, but look at bond yields going .own a win-win for investors across equity and bond yields. to continue toed be cautious in moving forward. what other risk reasons are you seeing? the global economy, as janet yellen has been concerned with, there has been some criticism that issue the world posse
central banker? the answer is yes. stepped intolly the fray and a positive way. bottomed inna august when they were doing their devaluation. a list like they're doing everything they can with monetary fiscal stimulus. that is probably these two whyes, the fed and china, commodities have popped in general, why every part of the market in emerging markets have come back. it has taken the pressure off. the biggest concern we have seen is u.s. corporate earnings. looking negative seven .5%, until we get clarity on corporate earnings. i think janet yellen is noticing as well, she will have a positive economic backdrop -- backdrop. is looking at two rate increases.
we think one or even less. the market probably has room to rent from here. wewhat about the gdp numbers got this morning, disappointing in the lowest we've seen in two years. what do you worry that tells us about the state of the economy today? is backwardt looking at we certainly always get revisions. they tend to be positive. i think consumer numbers are too implieday stronger than with housing, full employment at rates, anterest virtuous tailwind behind them. i think is the spending was really bad. i think that is also backward looking. science of manufacturing, the manufacturing survey, new orders are looking positive. the worst of the recession is passed us and that is good news. deals, among the 25 billion dollar deal, looking at that sector in particular, at
health care, is that something you like? >> health care is a positive. m a day last year was much stronger. i think a lot of concern about overregulation might behold and back some of the positive impact. last year, all this am and day, target both popping and price. what i am seeing now is again, really dropping in price. that is a concern. a lot of the plays are getting long in the tooth. i think health has a ways to go. i think energy sector is right for m&a. m and the day is always a positive. david: how about tech? earningsok of the season underway right now, is tech a bright spot? >> i cannot comment on particular companies, but tech
as a whole, we are not seeing q1 with strong earnings, but look forward, it looks like a earnings will come back. a lot of risk means company specific. you can have great momentum and a few names and some of the bigger names have weaker earnings, drag it down. i think technology is the place where, you have to be in technology. david: what julie was talking about a moment ago, looking at my chart comparing the s&p 500 over the last five years, from february on, you see outperforming of the s&p. what does that tell you? are look back and there times when the s&p 500 has been running for five or six years, very strongly, and i would say you have to do versus -- diversify in mid-caps and small caps and i think potentially small caps for the next few years could be the place to be but you certainly want to diversify into that but also, one of the best forming asset classes is the riskiest.
theging markets, across bonds, global bonds have been doing very well, corporate. it has really been a very good tailwind for investors and fixed income. but i like small caps. thank you. coming up next, analysts are bullish with trash. up, ceo of waste management on his company and why analysts still like the stock. ♪

the role commodity prices are playing in all of this. ast effect will that have you see it on recycling volumes? >> in this quarter, we lost a little money and recycling. it has not been unusual as we have seen the downturn in the commodity prices. it is across all of the commodities and we have all seen it, from copper to aluminum to oil. the thing about waste management is it is only about 10% of the businesses. the rest of the business is doing spectacularly well. we start to go through our current contract and say how can we make profit -- happily make it profitable for us and also the right thing to do for you. come out of it, what we will have is a business that is long-term sustainable and good for our profits and the environment. >> if i am a consumer wondering why it will cost more money, what do you say? >> yes, we need to make a decision as a country for what
we want to do. the average customer in the united date pays about 15-20 the wastemonth for removal services. compare that to the cable and electrical and the water bill. is it ok to panic should two dollars a month to recycle? it is not that big out of the consumers pocketbook. our community's need to understand the individual cost is not great but the cost to the environment can be great. do theigure out a way to right thing and keep it profitable so we can invest in assets we need to recycle right. david: no longer collecting glass recyclables. is that a negotiation happening in other cities where you have contracts? >> absolutely. is the second heaviest component of recycling. if you want to measure things by recycled, having classes a good thing.
difficult for us to sort and there is really not a market for the outlet for glass. it has become the least profitable part of the -- of recycling. while that is true today, we need to do something with our customers and a lot of customers for now are opting to exclude glass from recycling. one commodities come up a little bit and we find other things to do with glass, from a recycling point of view, i would expect them to come back but in the short-term, what we do for customers, if we do not want to see the prices go up, now the prices do not have to go up to recycle those other materials. david: what is the mood -- the relationship? if recycling is going down, do you see a pickup in solid waste? to go somewhere. if they are not going to your local recycling center, a lot of times they are going to our landfills. the good thing about glass is we can crush it.
we cover with anywhere from one foot to two feet of material so the waste does not blow around and escape the working space. we good news about glass is use that for daily cover to is great andte, it odor free and ultimately is being used in the landfill. can create electricity out of that and create lng out of that that we used to fuel the very garbage trucks we send back out to pick up the waste. david: you said 10% of waste management. i wonder if you are tracking the rule, if that is something you care about and something you can have an impact on the business? >> absolutely. we know only tracked the rules today, we have been tracking it for three years. we saw it coming and we started going to our customers in the electricity power generation business. we started going to them and
tried to work with them to figure out how we can ahead of the regulations. we have got a great contract with duke energy, doing everything they need to do to remediate, and then going beyond. what we talked to our customers about is how to we help you either manage it on site or take it to one of our facilities where we can manage it, but make sure we are managing it in a way that is environmentally friendly and at the lowest cost we could possibly get. david: thank you. the president and ceo of waste management. investmentsks the necessary to grow the economy and we hear from the president of -- global to hear his outlook. ♪

they came out and they kind of disappointed because they were keeping it steady. we know that things are not really working out there in japan. anyone who thought that this time would be different was certainly wrong. to get to earnings because that was the other big theme of the day. you are looking at amazon numbers. what is your trade? >> i am part man man. this is a role of the dice. piggybacking off of my trade last week, we were talking about, i was short on netflix and amazon was moving into the space. jeff bezos is like the guy who comes to your wedding and proposes to your girlfriend, steal yourng to thunder. announcing amazon prime video would be a standalone subscription on the same day netflix was reporting earnings. report, as part of the guidance, it would be really good and really bullish surrounding the amazon -- amazon users out of the

that we want to make america great. he has not given the details of how you would do that here and i think it can be done. not much permanent damage has been done. it is more the idea that we have created a not inviting environment for new businesses. that can be turned around. hillary clinton has not really said how she would change what the current call seas have been. we have to be candid. they are unfavorable toward business on the idea that this this is need to be regulated and pay more taxes. and that is causing a low confidence within the economy. >> a lot of americans out there would say that the government is pro-business and kind of forgetting about them. having said that -- >> that is a critical point. the government has in big business. wall street loves it. best the fed should buy more
bonds. favorable to is big business but that by definition hurt smaller businesses because there is only a certain amount of credit. >> flood policy would you recommend to the candidates out there, for the smaller business and the economy? >> clearly on tax policy, a better tax policy and on the fed, he doesn't need to be holding so many bonds. they can allow the investments plating off. some will say, doesn't that mean on yields will be hired? we have to get ready for slightly higher on yields to get more credit to go into other parts of the economy. loans, cny loans, personal loans, all of those need to go up to get small business going. david: coming up, the ceo of dunkin' brands joins us on which product -- products that customers love the most.
