warner and priceline, just seconds away. vonnie: the june rate hike is a real option. david: welcome to "bloomberg ." what better day to have our washington bureau chief here? megan: a big day in politics. we have several great guests over the next few hours come including ralph schlosstein from ever court. -- evercore. in theother soft session cards, maybe. futures and soft in the u.s., stocks down in europe as well. futures -14.
switch up the board, dollar on the back foot yesterday, front foot today. another piece of top data. time warner has come out with adjusted earnings per share of $1.49. at $7.3 billion. billion -- hbo5 at $1.15 billion. they are reaffirming their full-year outlook and the stock is currently down 1.5% in the premarket. pre -- 74.32 unchanged.
ondo have beating estimates the eps side and earning side. david: two in a row for me. now, back to politics. donald trump won big last night in indiana. delegates tonough secure the nomination. he commended ted cruz's decision to suspend his campaign. >> i did not expect this. braveed did is a very thing to do and a great thing to do because we want to bring unity to the republican party. we have to bring unity. it is so much easier if we have it [applause] . [applause] david: this is not what the political pundits would have predicted. : i think ted cruz dropping out last night has been
unexpected. donald trump is going to get the nomination. that is a fact. media has been predicting the would be some support for a third-party savior , a white knight candidate to come in rise out of the ashes. that is not going to happen. there's two challenges the party faces now. one is consolidating support behind donald trump. the second is, can they actually get there? can they raise enough money to challenge hillary clinton in a general election? david: i want to bring in ralph schlosstein. pick up on those two points. those are both questions about donald trump that remain o unanswered. ralph: you're probably asking the wrong person because i'm not a long-standing republican.
the republican party was always headed for a difficult year. once trump became a strong candidate. the non-trump faction, had they won, would have alienated a significant part of the party. a lot of new people who voted in the republican primaries. trump has done this without spending much of his own money and without raising any money. the republican financial people will have a tough choice. do they throw in their lot aggressively behind donald trump and raise a lot of money for him, or do they sit on the sidelines somewhat? the money decision is a different one from the voting decision. let's turn to your home turf of the democratic party. sanders: i understand
secretary clinton thinks this campaign is over. i've got some bad news for her. [applause] bernie sanders: tonight, we won a great victory in indiana. i want your thoughts on what is going on now with hillary's campaign. where this situation now we have this message fight on the democratic side is fascinating. what is he going to get out of her? is he going to push her further to the left? it's unlikely he will secure the nomination. for him, it's all about the battle of the message at this point. her byhe can hurt ultimately not coming together on substance. roleu place a spoiler rather than a role of uniting
the party, he could be of some harm to her. the election is a really fascinating election. on the one hand, if you look at it from a conventional perspective, demographics, how they have voted historically, it is awful hard to see looking backwards how donald trump wins. if you look past elections, bush barely won with 40% of the lost by 5ote, romney million votes with 27% of hispanic vote. it's hard to see that trump will thistter than romney in sector. you could see an election which is basically outside versus inside. david: ralph schlosstein will be with us for the rest of the
hour. jon: shaping up to be a bit of a soft open. earnings juste broke. eps $10.54 beating the nine dollars 66 estimate by a $9.66 estimate by a longshot. a big beat from priceline. yet, shares down 8.7% in the premarket. $117 drop because of the outlook. i will dig into those numbers. out with its first corley profits and becoming a public company. soaring. profits sinceerly becoming a public company. out medivation -- they
have another suitor after the pfizer talks broke down. cbs reported first-quarter earnings above estimates last night. we will hit on that later on in the hour. vale named in a lawsuit in brazil. bhp down in london. vale down in london. a couple of u.s. stocks unchanged on earnings. we still have 2.5 hours to go until the u.s. stock market opens. let's look at the other stocks that are trading overseas right now. shell is out, also
down right now after a 58% drop for the first quarter. offsets from refining earned 1.6s, but billion dollars, the smallest profit since 2008. we want to go to ryan chilcote in london. take us behind these topline numbers in the earnings of shell. ryan: it is the same stuff that exxonompanies like bp, surprise when it comes to the earnings. it was the downstream side of the business, the refining side of the business. street -- the up upstream. the chemicals business at sheldon really well. loves to talk about how
it's been performing so well. -- the chemicals business at shell did really well. $1.6 billion is not that bad if you think about it. did better with $1.8 billion. pretty solid results. the i was looking at combination my capital spending down one third over the same time. is there more fat to go? ryan: there is more fat to go. 33 to 30 billion. we saw the gearing go from 14% before this deal was completed 26.-- to

ralph: there are two things that have happened. we have seen a somewhat more aggressive antitrust regulation in the u.s. and europe as well. that affected baker hughes, halliburton, comcast, time warner. there is speculation that will affect the two big transactions in the healthcare services field. approach, the changes in regulations regarding inversions derailed the deal.-allergan there's less uncertainty about the economic environment, but more careful scrutiny of some of these large agglomeration type deals. megan: we see not only the ,ntitrust officials ramping up
when you look back now at pfizer-allergan, did pfizer make a mistake in acting so aggressively and being upfront about its reason for pursuing the transaction? ralph: i don't think there was any way they could have pursued what they sought to pursue that would have been more respectable that's respectful of u.s. regulators. regulators and tax authorities have these transactions in their -- sights. once the transaction was out there with the dynamics, the treasuries response -- treasury's response was generic but crafted.
this: which deals fit into -- they've been called unpatriotic by jack lew and others. ralph: we have a strong and appropriate populist revolt against the off shoring of jobs. basic other hand, the economics of employment going to where it is most cheaply provided and productive is very, very difficult to do. this is less about where jobs are located than it is about headquarters and taxes. jon: hold that thought. stick with us. david: next, we look at what is driving deals and health care. -- in health care. i will be talking with less

when those companies are ,uccessful in developing a drug they faced the issue of how we maximize the value of that. they have great intellectual property, but they don't have large capable distribution organizations. arebig drug companies sitting there with large distribution organizations, drugs going off patent and they have to constantly replenish the pipeline of new products. these are classic cases of new products with long lives being combined with the most effective distribution organization. >> the pattern clip is no longer that big of an issue. pointsed that big 2012 when we saw drugs go off a cliff
right there. these companies have gone through the patent process. they're looking to add more things in the pipeline with more --als come attractive assets a drug that has been on the market for two years now. it is doing really well. megan: is the next wave of dealmaking going to come from these spinoffs? we've seen the spinoff this morning in terms of biogen. ralph: you can look at these super large companies and say their multiple for their whole business is being harmed somewhat by the fact that they have very large, high cash flow but low growth businesses. the market still does pay for future growth.
financial sensible engineering that comes from separating these high cash flow, high dividend businesses from the higher growth activities. merger andn see acquisition arbitrage, you can look at their spreads. this is the anthem deal for cigna. it has comeint, back in line a little bit now at 38. with: a similar story humana. theyarket is telling us are not sure these deals will get done. ralph: starting with comcast, time warner, then baker hughes

still with us, evercore ceo ralph schlosstein. jon: barclays put out a press release and there it is, the 100% mortgage has returned u.k. can you believe we've got back to the old ways? ralph: that is not a good sign come in my view. megan: how many of those mortgages actually defaulted? you have more than the actual cost of your mortgage, you picks up the house, then sell and trade up the property ladder. david: what is driving this? wethis european banks saying will make money off retail mortgages? jon: the bank of england has put limitations in place.

new spending. a global level, it is incremental. 12%d: cbs, they were up taking out the super bowl. where are those dollars coming from? cable, in part. you have google, apple, amazon, pharma spending on advertising right now. outside of tech, pharma, what are those sectors you see coming through? brian: the largest advertisers of packaged goods are not increasing their spending by much. it is too soon to tell. inflectionpossible point for national television? ralph: i doubt it.

ironically, we have a still ongoing democratic race, even though hillary clinton is equally on track to be the nominee. we will see more spending, more battling, more bruising on that contestedotentially a democratic convention. megan: how does donald trump now --about healing these writs rifts? john: with great difficulty. the people around him recognize that there is a lot of mending to do. there is some faction in the republican party that will stay never trump. the intellectual class and foreign-policy establishment votesay i'm not going to
in this election. i'm not going to be for trump or hillary clinton. they are for hillary clinton. there will be a lot of coalescing and trump will rollout a few big endorsements. a key element of this will be the selection of a vice presidential nominee. and then there is the money thing. he just said to me this morning that he will make a decision on finance in the next week or so. if he decides to accept super , that will also go a long way towards healing the rifts within the republican ranks. -- is he seems to have

now. the endretty close to of the line of additional stimulus that comes from monetary policy. we have very supportive monetary policy, it will continue to support a tepid economic growth environment. there are not a lot of bullets left to boost growth and have breakout growth. for seven years now, we've been leaning very heavily on the monetary side and to lightly on the fiscal side. investors don't have to worry about the fundamentals -- do you see it fueling asset prices? you have asset prices globally that are supported by monetaryently loose
policy and the expectation that if the economy goes off course , an additional boost from the monetary authorities will come. there getting not far from end of their capacity to do that. that means we have a relatively slow growth economy that is vulnerable. jon: up next, matt miller and i you more of that bill gross note. ♪

that same tone. that was meant to send a signal to cruz's backers. ted cruz did not mention donald trump at all. he has expressed some very strong opinions -- megan: he has called him a threat to the stability of our nation. how are we going to get to a the ted cruz backers -- how are we going to heal the rift? jennifer: when donald trump says i don't know if you likes me or not, i would say at this point, the answer is no. trump was going after every other one of those candidates on the field except for ted cruz. they originally had some similar sentiment and they seemed to be
two peas in a pod. what we have heard from ted cruz best way to the heal this rift is to pick ted cruz as the vice presidential nominee. say he will be in charge of the supreme court nomination. one thing we have not heard that much on the campaign trail is policy. care, like health spending, how nervous are you we still fact that have so little flesh on the bone in terms of what a trump policy is going to look like? douglas: that is one of the two major concerns about donald trump as a nominee. the first is his character.

looks ugly. what do we need to know? >> this was the first quarterly ll's bigafter she increase in gas production. the downstream sector does very well. chemicals also performing strongly and the upstream continues to underperform. this was a very good quarter for shell. it is still the worst quarter since the end of 2008. morning: remember the the deal got done. the pushback against this deal was just immense. why now? why so much money? is it starting to pay off a little bit? >> clearly there are still
struggling to digest the deal. the capital expenditures forecasting for this year -- grievously guiding toward $33 billion. the cfo told us it could go even lower. it is a bit early to say that this is going to work. it will all be depending on a factor of oil and gas prices in particular. of gas about the future production. david: they were deciding to keep their dividend but give up their capital investment. an interesting judgment for the long-term. yes. we have seen the consequences of that. we saw it in 86 and 1999.
companies protect the dividend at any cost. they used the analogy of mario draghi -- whatever it costs we will protect their dividends. lower spending will mean lower supply for the future. that means lower growth for the companies and the global economy. we may have oil supplies that we were not expecting. jonathan: there's a company out this morning -- people asking whether this is a bp moment. i'm talking about php and a big lawsuit. it is 44 billion dollars. authorities in brazil are asking bhp andhp and -- for moneyning company for a disaster when a dam broke. to the disaster
for bp. authorities in brazil are raising that parallel. we have seen going after -- chevron for example. the sentiments are much lower than the initial claims. there is some posturing at the beginning of the fight. megan: i want to talk about iran. iran's production is coming up very quickly. we are putting that at 3.5 million barrels a day. that's the highest in four years. it means iran has moved very quickly to recover market share the moment the sanctions were lifted about 90 days ago. it's a remarkable turnaround for
tehran to be able to increase production so much. that is more oil that is coming into the market. probably another reason to expect that oil prices are going to pick up. blas, thank you for joining us. we are just under an hour away from the opening. we are hearing what he banks are looking at today. stephen anzac is head of the strategy team. he joins me now with his take on the health of the bond markets. thanks for joining us. you are not bearish credit right now. neutral?eping you is that a fair assessment? is a fair assessment.
what's interesting about credit right now is you have diametrically opposed forces. right now it's the technicals that are driving the day. the technicals are really bolstered in part by limited supply in credit as well as a lot of inflows in this low yield environment we are experiencing particularly in the overseas markets. money lookingof for a home and not a lot of bonds to buy. i think the primary force driving valuations that pushing spreads tighter. havee other hand we fundamentals that are not supportive of valuation. were talking about how earnings are not that great. if you only look at earnings they just aren't good.
we took a sample of bond issuers and looked at their revenues. they are basically going to be flat in q1. look at another metric like leverage. if you go back over the next decade you are at all-time highs. these forces that are working against each other. the technicals are working right now. but you are getting rich to the fundamental fair value. let me ask you about supply. we have heard a lot of doves on the fed say the u.s. should be issuing more debt in order to .eet the demand we just heard bill gross talk about the possibility of helicopter money and going back to another round of qe. no matter what your take on how likely that is, the fed certainly is more dovish and seems to be positioned that way. don't you think? >> i do.
there are reasons you could see companies wanting to issue more debt. low yields are one good reason. i also think you have some counter forces to that. m&a was a huge source of supply. shareholder friendly deals in general. companies would issue debt to do in m&a transaction. they really have not been doing that. why? i think the equity market is less interested in renewing -- rewarding companies that pursue financially engineered growth. i think that's a shift in market forces. with credit fairly valued, where would you look for value? >> i think that's a great question. there are a lot of divert and
says within the credit market -- withince -- divergences the credit market. i believe it is a credit pickers market. you have to go company by company to uncover the value. matt: thank you, stephen anzac. david. david: tesla is in the spotlight. a new home energy solution is about to hit u.s. markets. demand is rising for the model three and earnings are coming out after the bell. that's next on bloomberg go. ♪

david: tesla earnings are coming out after the bell. they are expected to post a loss. they are expecting to turn around and be in the black for the second quarter. there has talk about them going into the black in the second quarter. that's a long way to go. they lost $14,000 a car. an automaker. it's the youngest automaker in the u.s.. the key is making autos. they have not had to do that a lot. they had 50,000 vehicles which f-150st what ford sells in a bad month. the better they produce the more they can sell. what they have made they had pretty good success. they have had great reviews on
the vehicles they have made. it's just making enough of them. thewhat that says about future and how quickly they can bring the model 3 to market. the number,'s about what do they need to get to in order to break even? >> that's a good question. it has to be more. it's not even about breaking even. in 2018,t the model 3 2019 and can they really maximize that factory and to do they have enough capacity and skill to expand to a second and third factory. megan: when i look at a company like fiat chrysler, $10 billion market cap. marketas a $30 billion cap for a company only expected to generate $9 billion in revenue and a good case. this number is so out of whack. it is still a call option on
the future potential of the company. it is a 10-year-old company. somebody in the industry was asking me, how long do they get to be a startup? it's a very big and slow developing industry. the second youngest company in the industry is 50 or 60 years old at honda. they are like an adolescent. they have to build -- one factory? it's a tiny thing. but the potential of this company is really what investors are excited about. there's a chance the world is going to get away from petroleum and prefer electric cars. they are trying to show people that electric cars can be better, more fun, and more useful than traditional cars. david: how much runway do they have?
burned through $440 million just in the first quarter alone. >> that was one of the better quarters. that is something they are really looking at. it was the model 3. they got a huge influx of cash. that's great and maybe that's enough to get them through to where they become cash flow positive. these troublesll with manufacturing on the vehicles and batteries. there's a lot of thinking that they might actually need more cash. people want to buy that stock. it is so inflated relative to the prophets and size of the company. people want to give you their money, take it. david: that is jamie butters. thank you for being with us. megan: booze or cigarettes? which vice has outperformed the financial crisis in battle of
david: this is bloomberg go. i'm david westin. hedge fund fees are under fire from them of the world's biggest investors including warren buffett. critics say managers -- face a wave of closures. some of the challenges facing the hedge fund industry. >> first quarter for the hedge fund business has been a very unfavorable period in large part because when you head check the positions and markets turn as they go up sometimes everything goes up and you are short and it goes up. compoundedounded -- that were too few opportunities. when they tried to cover their positions stocks went up 100%,
200%, 300% just for technical reasons. the rates of return in the hedge fund business and the fee structure has discouraged some investors. it's highly probable that the asset class will shrink a bit. for firms like ours it's very interesting. one would think it would be very negative. because we are the largest in the world allocating money to hedge funds. we arerprised me is getting really good-sized flows. what's washing out a number of our competitors. is there is ang move to quality. there is a move to performance.
and the people who will be left in that business will do very well. the people who are marginal performers will not. , 20% ofmal environment hedge funds go out of business every year. that's a normal environment. >> what are we looking at now? >> a slightly abnormal environment. as a allocator of capital to hedge funds, you are focusing on quality. how aggressively are you redeeming from those who cannot deliver the results you want? >> we have been doing this since about 1990. we are prudent in terms of taking money away. >> do you find yourself giving more of it now? let's look at it this way.
we started with no assets. we now have $67 billion. about who wel choose. that's the most important thing. if something is wrong of course we act. david: that was blackstone chairman steve schwarzman talking with erik schatzker. jonathan: you can find it online at bloomberg.com. time for battle of the charts. it's mark barton versus matt miller. chart wars. mark barton, you are first. mark: the miller quandary after my good buddy matthew miller. cigarettes or booze? today we had results from imperial brand and ab inbev. which sector has fared the best since march 2009? spirits andncludes beer and soft drinks.

jonathan: where is etsy? megan: where's my furniture? victory means he is a virtual certainty to become the republican candidate. we are joined by kevin cirilli. how surprising was it to you about ted cruz? >> it was shocking. top aides from the donald trump campaign were stunned to see senator ted cruz remove himself from the presidential race and candidly a are left scrambling this week to reassert their schedule for where he will be campaigning. they were anticipating a much longer call. haul. megan: we have heard endorsements. we think of few are coming. what's interesting is how he is going to get the money. >> he needs to unify the party and a great way to do that is to
fund raise. there was not really a concrete plan at this time. what's interesting about donald trump's campaign is that he is going to be able to tap into a new network of wealth. this is a new type of money. it is not necessarily the old-school money from wall street. these are the type of people that have put businesses in the trump hotels. this is a new era. that could be a big benefit to the republican party and a leverage point as he looks to unify the party. also aroundris hyzy the table. as an investor -- trying to grapple with what this means. last time it came down to it as simple as who would be in charge of the fed. i do not see what it is at this point. for the markets it is always positive and negative surprises. that is mostly what everyone has talk about heading into this
year. it looks like things are getting more clear in terms of a two candidate race for the white house. is political uncertainty in a lot of places. you have the u.k. referendum. election season is coming. the contentions in july. megan: the increased certainty we have that he will be the nominee -- as the market view him the same as any other nominee? >> it's a little bit sanguine. there's not a lot of movement. the markets are most concerned right now about the dollar and very soon about the fed. it is less so about the political environment. megan: we will see how that holds. jonathan: two fed officials saying the markets are wrong about the potential for a june hike. they say a rent hike next month
could be on the table. bill gross said prepare for renewed qe. he sees helicopter money as the next depth in stimulus efforts. a lot of people are going to look at this and say, this is crazy. it's not crazy at all. a lot of people are talking about this. there's not much left in terms of stimulus if they need to pull the trigger. timing ofnds what the the next step is. isn't this year or a few years down the road? a few years down the road is the duration that something like a helicopter money would come. we have a ways to go before we worry about whether or not there is extra stimulus. it's probably not another qe. qe is about bond buying. there's others talking about it in the marketplace. some of the other large bond managers are out there.
if wage growth starts to trickle in and continue the momentum we have seen in the last six months than you are going to start talking about when the fed actually hikes versus when the fed is going to move the other way which is on an easy stimulus measure. megan: we have been talking about jobs. howe come in much lower much do you think that's going to change things? >> it will change the futures market first. we are about 12% right now i think discounting a june hike. week is going to be the u.k. referendum. so there's a lot of conditions you have to take into account. we don't have enough data yet to suggest that june is any higher than the 12% of the market expects. if you get one bad employment report number, the dollar is going to come down. it will likely support markets versus the other way around. we have a chart showing
treasury yields tumbling by the most since february down to 180. back when they were closer to 2% you had a june} odds of 50%. rate rise odds of 20%. hike in june a this would turn around pretty quickly. jonathan: i'm not sure it would. if you get a hike in june and you set up the potential for growth and any kind of take up inflation, treasuries should rally, shouldn't they? that's what they have done recently when that has happened. the question would become, how flat will the curve become and will the german bond yield market come down with us? that's the key.
one big reason markets and asset prices have come back since mid february -- nothing much has changed except the fact that the dollar has weakened about 5% or 6%. it supported commodity prices. to get thist feeling that if the dollar declines another 5% you get another additive -- matt: is the fed only focuses on jobs and inflation that you would see them on an actual path to normalization. that's why i think that could turn around. jonathan: that's interesting. david: we will move on to the number three story. another big day for earnings. time warner profit. earnings-per-share also beat. later today we have tesla reporting results as well as 21st century fox.
give us a report card. how are we doing? >> slightly better than what we thought going in. and slightly ahead of expectations. when you think about all of that the next question is what do earnings revisions look like? they have been a little bit better. if you continue to see stability in the dollar and oil price hang , you could see another two to three dollars added to earnings. of that is tied to what you think is going on with the dollar? slow weaknesssee in the dollar, not sharp weakness. dollars5% is one to two in s&p earnings. but that all together.
we are at about $122 for the year right now. we are at equilibrium. megan: let's talk brexit. how much uncertainty do you think is lagging over with that or do you think it is priced in now. most of the uncertainty around that is priced in as we speak. anded into the pound interest rates and the overall global marketplace. any negative surprises now patched -- priced in. the only positive surprise you can see between now and the end of the year is the fact that earnings surprises to the upside. it's tough to say that that's going to happen but the element is there and it all has to do with the dollar. david: thank you, kevin cirilli.
chris hyzy is staying with us. let's go to vonnie quinn. union: the european agreement on refugees is having a huge impact. greece took in 3500 refugees last month. the european union reached an agreement with turkey aimed at cutting off the flow of refugees . in return turks are expected to be allowed to travel to europe without visas. all 80,000 residents of an oil town in western canada have been ordered to evacuate. the fire has already destroyed whole neighborhoods. high winds are making the path of the fire and predictable. public school students in detroit return to the classroom after a two-day sickout.
possible upside you see in equity markets. is it just going to be earnings? thing he coulder be as multiple expansions. it's very difficult unless you get new investors from all over the world that are going to come in and get excited about things. the political equation is about to hit us again in june and july. election season in the united states, we have the potential for another devaluation in china. all these things that are a general wet blanket on multiples. the only thing in the denominator that could get you excited between now and the end of the year is the potential for an earnings surprise. ont would be 68 70 points the s&p. which gets a closer to 2200. that it's very difficult to see much more than that.
it's a grind. i think it's a buffalo market. the possibility for a negative surprise around the corner as well. absolutely. you know what buffaloes do. a run the other way. jonathan: and they fall off the cliff. unit labor costs are up. corporate profits down in the first quarter. i'm a client. i call you up. i say, i've got tons of money. i want to stay in cash. what do you say? >> you are heading into a downslope. political uncertainty. as it relates to cash earnings, there's fantastic opportunities below the market particularly around the consumer spending area. massive consumer spending shift going on. you want sectors that are not necessarily going to be hurt by
whoever becomes president. what type of bills might get passed through congress. you are looking for yield in cash flow. you want to get paid to wait. while we continue to have these low numbers -- the productivity numbers are probably not accurately calculated. the iphone has made us all much more productive. for all phones. david: or at least busier. >> i would argue the cloud -- all of those things make companies more productive which keeps operating leverage at a level that they suggest. for me to productivity numbers being as low as they are, i'm not so sure if is measured as accurately as we want it to be. we talk about accommodative policies of the central banks around the world. and supporting asset prices.
i'm wondering if there is the anticipation of further devaluation in case of a downturn. is that a risk for the markets? have you ever concluded the central banks would not come in on a downturn? then thet is not there larger institutional investor would be the first that would get very uneasy on that. on the retail side it is still an element of where is revenue growth, where is economic growth. we will be stuck in that number for a while. it's very difficult to get out of that world when you have demographics like we do in the world. you don't have fiscal policy filling the gaps is used to fill. infiscal policy comes back than monetary policy can wean
itself away. you get a much better balance. that happens monetary policy has to remain accommodating. megan: chris hyzy, you are sticking with us for the rest of the hour. next, under armour versus buyer capital. more on that and some of the others ahead of the open. futures just firming up a touch. s&p 500 futures -12. some disappointing data. the adp number comes in cooler than expected as we look ahead to payroll friday. ♪

take a look at time warner, the of othercnn and a lot cable channels. first-quarter earnings that beat analyst estimates. because of higher ratings from their networks like cnn that god and a lot of advertising dollars due to donald trump and the rest of the people who are running for president. also, check out shares of etsy. this is where megan gets her furniture. sewing after the company reported their first profit in going public. that was driven by foreign exchange gain in more than $13 million from income tax provision. it is a great place to get tie dyes, david. megan: i would like to point that out. david: that is a good idea. we will talk now more about cbs and time warner. joining us is paul sweeney and chris from bank of america. hall, the thing that struck me
about these two earnings, cbs and time warner, the division between advertising and subscription fees. we have heard the place to be immediate is subscription fees and advertising is dying. these seem to point in the other direction. is advertising back? paul: particularly it is back on television. cbs is exposed to television and -- advertising television and it is up 12%. have not seen that in five years and we have not seen that from any media company in a long time. is comingenvironment back and there's talk about advertisers switching money out of their digital internet budgets back into television. that: the ceo of cbs said last night that people and not trusting digital advertising because they are not sure whether the dollars are paying off. is that true? toebook advertising is going the roof. called: over the last 18 months,
advertisers have been trying to dabble in digital advertising and i think some of those marginal numbers may be coming back to broadcast and cable television. we have seen that in the scattered market over the last six months with a strengthening in tv ad spending. the industry is now going into their upfront selling season. david: explain that because this is a great piece of time for les moonves. paul: exactly. that is when the broadcasting table -- cable television cells for next television season in the month of may. $18 billion of ad spending will be allocated over the next couple of weeks, so a nice time to come in with a strong market environment,onomic and all of the networks are talking about the strong upfront and even les moonves expects double-digit pricing increase going into the upfront.
megan: when i look at time warner, i look at cnn and i think about how much they benefited from the trump effect. much has that benefited them in terms of political ad spending? paul: cbs and cnn in particular have tremendous radians in -- rating boosts and that is translating into advertisement. obviously, that will continue through the election. local television affiliates benefit from clinical advertising and that is what candidates spend their money, so companies like time warner with no tv stations but cbs does, so the local affiliates are the ones that really make the money on these political advertisements. david: 21st century fox comes out next and they own some television stations but what are expecting?
hall: strong quarter of the fox because they're benefiting from two trends. that is advertising at the cable network and broadcast network and strong affiliates, or paid tv providers are still increasing the amount of money they paid for the cable networks year-over-year, so affiliate fees for cable network owners are still strong, despite the concerns of core coming and what that might due to business long-term. david: another question is exposure to foreign revenue because that is different among media companies. time warner has 30% that comes from overseas. i think 21st century fox's 36%. what about fx? issue ashas been a big it has been for other industries and it is starting to moderate right now. companies that are exposed to the national advertising markets, which are faster growing and most cases, from advertising and affiliate fee thepectives, most of companies like discovery, communications, 21st century fox, those are the most exposed
to international business and those have been a long-term positive for them. megan: we are talking about cord cutting and where you seen that now? skinny bundles are really favorable now, so what is the trend going forward? is it decelerating or accelerating in terms of cord cutting? paul: that is the big deal for investors. cord cutting is happening across the board. it is a question of this deepness of the decline. i think we are at the opinion that it will be a much more moderate decline then some in the markets feared, even as recently as last summer when the concern was business was under pressure. we are starting to see some cable companies actually growing their video subscribers. comcast had the best quarter in terms of video sales and nine years, so i think it is a long-term trend and it is probably a little bit slower than some bears forecasted. david: how do you view the media sector?
chris: very good points. it sets up the whole point hall talked about with megan's question. -- paul talked about with megan's question. the dollar is helping. people don't think the media sector is impacted by the dollar, but that is a shot for the rest of the year for people more impacted by the dollar. in the long-term, we are witnessing the greatest spending shift next that we have seen in any demographic, and that is the purchases of goods shifting dramatically from experiences, service, entertainment, travel, leisure, etc., which impacts positive media-based areas. david: i want to thank paul sweeney. americazy of bank of will be staying with us. stay tuned for my interview with les moonves at 11:00 eastern time. next, speaking of the dollar. what a 24 hours in has been for

2011 and decided not to make an offer for the stock exchange in london. they said they were not talking and engagement was the problem there. it could that created the largest operator in new york, but if you don't get along, you moved inshould not together. zillow seen the best day of gains after sales topped estimates and they raised their forecast. it is a real estate website. it has a net loss of almost $50 million for the quarter, but the analysts saw something that they really liked in the report, so they almost doubled the price target. $12 and nowworth worth $23 and it is way over that target so they might want to revisit that. take a look at hain celestial beating sales estimates on the best day of gains since august 2014. the third-quarter adjusted eps and it missed estimates.
beating sales but missing estimates and heading a nine-month high. david: thanks. let's go to bloomberg's abigail too little at the nasdaq -- abigail doolittle at the nasdaq. abigail: priceline shares down sharply. the worst dry on the nasdaq is that they offered to well below analyst. view of this they say a few factors are responsible for the forecast, including a weak macro environment and cancellations. what stands out is the fact that priceline sees a softer demand for travel in the second quarter than expedia. priceline said the second quarter view is not indicative of long-term growth that lots of uncertainty. shares of priceline are stuck in the long-term trading range. climbing on the open our shares fell computing company, also will below consensus paper the second quarter.
while saying that the for your targets could be at risk on the timing of new orders. they have downgraded shares of cray. they say that the company is well positioned in the computing space. up 20% yearray was to date and now the shares are down more than 5% on the year. thank you. to the fx market. what a move we have had. following dollar strength and to explain it, we are joined in new york with chris hyzy still with us. yesterday, euro dollar through 116 and that was your call. what is the narrative because the fx market is grappling for a story and struggling to find it? >> i think you are right. this story is not a trending
the range hasile been extended on the euro from the outside, i think it got a little scared being above 1.16 ahead of payroll. ofhink the market has kind enabled to ride the story for little bit, but i think traders are willing to reconsider, especially ahead of this data. jonathan: talk to me about volatility. for thenly gotten this first time in about two years. are we over 1.16? don't think we are massively short the dollar. q1 was all about and winding that long dollar position and the bullish dollar debts. we got to a point where the market was a little bit short the dollar, but it is not a trending market. i think there's not a lot of conviction behind holding up for
a long period of time, so that largely explains the dollar reversal. just caution and maybe we push things a little too far in one direction. jonathan: are you looking at the front end of the treasury yield curve? basis gone from 110 points to below 75. that smells weaker dollar. does that story continued for you looking at the front end of treasury? vassili: i think we should be near the lows. vassili:real yields have been falling. i'm wondering where is the end story? almost nothing is priced for the fed until the end of the year. a 50% chance of just one hike and the fed keeps telling us that the window is still open. if those expectations were to change, i think that were more likely to change in the harker's direction and that is part of the reason why traders and analysts, including ourselves, are turning more positive on the dollar just from the risk perspective.
jonathan: matt miller? matt: i have a chart that i showed earlier and it shows the dollar year to date and the yen and the euro strength. you and jon talking about whether people are low on the dollar or have gotten short on the dollar, what sources do you go to to see where global investors are r.e. the dollar? it is subjective judgment to some extent woman look at positioning in the futures markets, planned positioning, the options market area -- judgment to some extent when we look at positioning in the futures markets, planned positioning, the options market. all have been turning against the dollar for little while, but to emphasize again that i don't think it is massively short the dollar. i think the market is moderately short but even that is not high conviction do.
that is why you are starting to see the reversal. megan: chris, what are you thinking about in june? what will we have to see to have that happen? chris: a couple of employment reports, number one, and you have to see the cost index start to rise in that. you would have to see that go up . you would also have to sit global financial conditions very tame through all of that. and 10% of that so percent discount that the fed had the futures market would rise precipitously and you doubt that back for real on the table. the fed is using communication to keep things as tomlinson as -- as balanced as they possibly can. we saw what happened when they're a negative surprises in the fragile market and they do not want to see that. when you look at everything that the foreign-exchange markets and everything they said and you put a map of financial assets out
there, we have been range balance on everything for well over 12 months. that is emblematic of a midcycle adjustment that is going on. it is a fragile market place overall. megan: i always think about looking at if they are doing an effective job in the communication strategy. chris: i think they are doing the best they can for the cards they have been dealt. they have a massive balance sheet and they do not want to unwind it too quickly or tap the brakes on it too quickly because most of the demands of not been met and they have global financial conditions to watch and no transparency and what fiscal possible be in the next. -- fiscal possibility in the next few months, so they are doing the best they can. jonathan: thank you. short they will be are to the dollar. , great torebriakov have you on the program and talk fx markets with you. david: and chris hyzy, thank you
for being with us today. coming up, bloomberg markets with betty will and mark barton. what do we have to look forward to? we're looking forward to something you will be giving us, les moonves. you will be interviewing him in the next hour. also, the cio of janus capital. he will be joining us later in the next hour, and we are still talking about an incredible win. we will be talking about what is and in the championship john nickel weight -- john nickelwait will be talking about how he is looking his wounds for not betting this year. of all years. back to you guys. megan: i don't think i want to
ferro.n: i am jonathan we are 24 minutes into the session. major indices in the red in america. down by about 1.5% in the s&p 500 and dow jones. europe having their fourth day straight -- fourth straight day of losses. checking the board quickly. the head of payrolls friday, a soft adp report with treasuries rallying off the back of the board. crude keeps climbing higher, up by 2.6%.

me, i had to think -- his strategy all along has been, let's make its agreement and see what comes out there. convention chances are almost zero and i do not think it will be john kasich coming out. aly nott is a matter of gracefully. megan: his endorsement is important because he appeals to a court of the audience that donald trump does not appeal to and that is the well-educated moderate. vp.ould beat trump's prudential michael collins right here on bloomberg. bloomberg markets continues, next. ♪
