i would point out that the plane was only in paris for one hour. it was a quick turnaround. cairo, alexandria . if something was put on the know, but we really don't it wasn't necessarily in paris. david: thanks, greg. leaders from seven countries are meeting in japan the next two days. what are the big issues on the table for this many? -- what are the big issues on the table for this meeting? went seems like the yen from being the elephant in the room to closer to the spotlight. we heard from japan's finance minister briefing reporters and saying that when it came to the
recent moves and fx, that was not discussed. he did reiterate that excessive and disorderly moves will hurt the economy. he also mentioned that stable fx is very important as well. that is when you get into that gray area on intervention. overnight, we heard from the obama administration about wrapping up the pressure on currency manipulation. japan and germany are on this watchlist monitoring the movement and currencies. we did for the u.s. not exactly out japan.- singling they said it would be hurtful to global growth. trade flows are weaker than they should be. this is not a time when countries should be making major moves to boost competitiveness. they said the g-7 should not avoid competitive devaluation
and they are working to attain growth as well as that the school growth. >> there is a lot of disagreement on what currency intervention would look right. is there any agreement on what constitutes a disorderly fx move? >> that was actually a question reporters had asked the u.s. treasury secretary moments ago. he gave a good example. what he constituted as disorderly was what happened back in japan in 2011 when the earthquake and tsunami happened. sources telling us that the u.s. feels movements began recently have been orderly. it's things like we have not gone to those extreme measures. >> thank you so much. that is even on man -- thank you. expectationsift in . bloomberg radio surveillance says -- michael mckee joining

market --und the 28% 28 percent mark going into june. what do they want to see the number at? michael: there are a lot of traders who do not want the fed to move. they also think the fed has cried wolf too many times. if the data starts moving in the direction dudley is talking about, watch those numbers. we will get close to 50%, 70%. janet yellen is talking june 6. fighting back against politics around the federal reserve. does that surprise you? >> he has been an outspoken voice saying the fed should not be dragged into the political sphere. jon: michael mckee, great to have you with us. we will turn to goldman
sachs holding their annual meeting today. i next team leader michael moore is turning us from london live with a preview. what is your reporting telling us? michael: we have a couple of items on the docket addressing long-standing issue, whether it is an independent chairman or investing for people who go into government work. neither of those are expected to gather a great amount of traction. what you are going to be focused on is the common territory but the banks' decision to stick with the trading business after a rough 12 months. and really a rough four or five years. david: this is not a good period for those holding goldman stock. how much pressure is lloyd going to come under? michael: he will get a lot of pressure from the bank strategy and decisions that stick so strongly in the trading business.
he is going to point to the cost cutting, the shrinking they have done of the balance sheet. there are real questions. you have analyst coming out and saying the second quarter is expected to be down as well for trading revenue across the industry. so this is a business that has been in decline over the last several years. david: michael moore, thank you very much from london. jon: coming up, overbearing, too much negative sentiment. find out what to buy when everyone else is selling. ♪
over the last few days, $900 billion was white off the value of global shares. is this the bottom? peter joins us now. reached asign we have tipping point and people are going to go back into stocks? peter: it has been encouraging that the fed has gone out of their way to put the hike on the table and stocks have done reasonably well. we are down 2100, but we have not broke the 20, 40 level and we will start to see the rebound. people have just been bearish. lisa: i am struck by this. there is a great amount of pessimism. the fed is about to move and will destabilize its entire --age that the economy is its entire mirage that the economy is in. peter: it will not take as much
to push to higher levels. it is hard to push down when so many people are underweight. there are so many ways to look at it. -- look at if you start digging into it, you have seen this egg trade were people are bowling out of tech -- if you start digging into it, you see this where people are pulling out of tech. something i want to understand is all of that negative sentiment, what is the signing off? peter: as normal people have been selling, some of that has
been bought by the companies themselves. you are seeing the s&p. it does have those utilities. it does have those low volatility names and you are seeing consumer stocks. you have seen shifts and that has absorb some of it. the sovereign wealth funds have been buying it. has absorb this domestic selling. david: we hear conflicting reports. udp is coming down and they are concerned the jobs number make it softer -- gdp is coming down and they are concerned the jobs number is making it softer. -- the bearuch more case is easy to make. i can come up with the exact same analysis. that is the problem. everyone is looking at the potential for the fed --
that is what people are underweight. it is a positioning. when so many people are underweight, it is hard for the market to go down. you have pressure from all these short positions. tore has been a huge influx these volatility funds. they have been bleeding money. some point, people cut those hedges that propel stocks higher. is on why they are confident the fed can raise rates in june or july? they have it by bloomberg estimates. stocks haven't fallen off. that backs up my view that people are underweight. some uncertainty into usmv. becoming less fearful of the market. that propels us for the next
high beta trade. david: thanks peter. we are going to go over to julie's. julie: a company called enter oil that trades in the u.s. their assets are in new guinea. assetsge which also has is going to be acquiring it for $2.2 billion. then it will sell the majority of the acquired gas in expiration assets to paris for $1.2 billion. tal -- ge and toa at thee are looking maker of cartier jewelry. sales plunged 18% in april. the company is coming out with a negative forecasts saying challenging comparatives will persist through september. it is trading lower.

where is the sweet spot for producers itching to ramp backup reduction? joining us is james west. where is the sweet spot for u.s. shale? mid 50's is the sweet spot. service companies have no pricing power. they are working at cash flow even prices. task going to be a hard given the devastation over the last two years. 65 is probably a breakeven cost for u.s. shale. jon: the narrative is we have gone through a story of storage capacity to a story of a market deficit. where is the reality is, somewhere in between? on a: we are oversupplied
global basis. that oversupply has quickly followed. we should see inventory strong the second half of this year. cuts over the last two years will lead to very limited supply as we get into 17, 18, and 19. in february and march, we were hearing possible restructuring. has that run its course, and how big a factor may that be in supply? james: we are going to see more default as we go through this year. more restructuring as well. of this.lay into all what that will do will maybes producers will take up their interest expenses. they will have a better cost of capital and better access to capital markets so they can spend again. they want be -- they won't be the companies they are today.
they stayed on script this quarter. up, -- he mayake see a tick up, but not a whole lot. lisa: even if oil prices increase, that means the companies with 120 billion dollars of debt that have defaulted, there is more to come in they can come back online even with higher oil prices? james: not slowly not. -- absolutely not. the bankers are mostly controlled by regulators. they are slow to change. lisa: there is a story that banks have been hiring law firms to build in tighter credit protections with energy companies. james: absolutely. david: talk about geopolitics.
the canadian wildfire is a short-term event, but nigeria, how important is that? is that a long-term issue on supply? james: geopolitics are getting much worse whether it is the middle east, west africa, the -- they are blowing up pipelines. these are serious outages causing long-term problems. we could see the spread to other places. strikes going on in kuwait. , morell see more outages geopolitical tensions. don't forget about latin america. jon: this is an important conversation. the geopolitics will prevent people from investing in most locations. means thatsituation
the cash flow will go towards the debt repayment. when does it become critical for the oil market? james: we are in that stage where the major auto companies needs to figure out what they want to be when they grow up. are they dividend payers, or will replace reserves? they have to start spending capital the next 6229 months -- six to nine months. west, thank you very much for this very important conversation. coming up, currency concerns taking center stage at the g7. stick with us on "bloomberg ." ♪ show me top new artist.
market snapshot. -- let me give you the global market snapshot. i want to begin with what is been happening with equity markets. what you see is the s&p 500 down about 4/10, negative on the year. what is positive is we have not had a big equity market route off of the new federal rate hike expectations. you can see in green, this is the performance of today's session. of 76 points and up one full percentage point on the session. points and up one full percentage point on the session. copper session bouncing back of 1/10 of 1%. is reason the ftse performing -- the move away from the conversation about the fed to the g7 in the coming days. the fx market and what you see
in the red is a weaker japanese yen trading down 1/10 of 1%. dollar yen going and little higher. the one to watch. japan worried about a currency getting too strong. the problem is a going to the g7, which is dominated by politics, and 1/10 is stable. david: thanks, john. we are two hours from the opening bell on wall street. the g7 meeting begins in japan, the world's most industrialized to adopte expect practical measures to improve the international fight against terrorism. equipmentt farm producer has reduced sales of tractors and combines as farmers have a decline in income. the wall street journal is reporting bids for the core business of yahoo! may fall that

issue and we are maintaining the integrity of the eurozone. for brexit, i hope that the british voters will choose to remain because that is the only win/win solution for the u.k. and the eu. francine: you always comes up as a problem child in the world. we have seen a little bit of growth, but because of the referendums and lack of debt relief, we are pointed to, we can do more. change?l it pierre: i am not agreeing on that. -- the that the economy eu is in solid recovery. it could be even stronger. it could be faster. it could be even superior. but we are at a level nearby 2% growth a year as well as for this share and for next year. it is solid. we need to pursue reforms,
social reforms, and keep a strong pace of fiscal consolidation, but not damaging recovery. we are leading the investment euros. 300 billion rightrozone is on the track, but of course, i understand there is a need for more political leadership, and some choices such as a refugee -- and some issues such as the refugee crisis needs to be addressed. francine, what would a g7 be without a conversation with greece? agenda, what did you make of what he had to say? francine: i can't believe we are 12 months after the brexit concern. greece would have to leave the eu because of debt problems. again, we are talking about greece and worried about a summer of turmoil, a summer of
discontent. it is crazy that we have not had a solution. the imf is still trying to talk to the counterparts. the germans still seem to be the blocking point in terms of debt relief. we did speak to pierre moscovici, the commissioner of economic stability. they both told us that they were confident that a program would be reached as soon as next week. we talked about brexit and talk a lot about the other concerns. guess what? they have not talked or addressed currency wars get. jon: i wonder if that is a conversation for behind closed doors? the president of the european commission, here is a quote -- they will not be welcomed with open arms. get together, these institutions, do you think they should be warning about consequences about risk, or thinking about contingency plans
many politics take care of themselves? francine: the problem about politics is that it is very emotional. know what trade negotiations look like, which is by the president of the european commission is saying, if you will the eurozone, there be consequences because we will not put you forefront. first of all, it sounds very emotional. is it the right strategy? i am not sure it is. if you are a u.k. citizen, you have president obama coming, you have your celebrities weighing in on the brink the debate. brexithing in on the debate. with sore bombarded much influence on the outside, maybe your gut feeling is you want to follow your instinct. i am only going to listen to my neighbor. jon: francine lacqua, very good to have you on the program. moscovici may not
be talking about currency concerns, but finance ministers will be talking about it and -- about it at the g7. stephen, and a world of negative freights, what is at stake? stephen: they also growth is inadequate and they want someone else to do something about growth. the u.s. keep talking about fiscal policy, but they do not have a fiscal option to put on the table. they are encouraging europe to do more fiscal and encouraging japan to do more fiscal. the japanese, they have their backs against the wall. they need stimulus and they need a weaker yen right now. jon: it was all about the stronger japanese yen and we'll have this g7 meeting in our diaries, that this was a disorderly move. it is not that? steven: it is not a disorderly move one dollar yen is going up and only when it is going down. back to japanese
internal politics, that they have an economic cold they are digging themselves out of. they don't want to dig themselves out of that hole. lisa: do you expect them to come to a decision and agree to some kind of truce in the currency wars? steven: i think interpretations will be different when they walk out of the room. japan feeling it has some option now it he arguing that it has some option nobody with respect to intervention in the u.s. adamant that they don't. end of the day, if dollar yen starts threatening 105 or 100, if they do intervene, whether or not the treasury likes it. says takeet yellen some of the pressure off here. if they start hiking rates, it will weaken the yen relative to the dollar automatically without people having to do anything. steven: when you talk to g7 --
g-20, they don't want to see dollar rates going up. when you are g7, the europeans would love to see a weaker euro. japan would love to see a weaker euro. or a stronger dollar. and above the fact that the fed is putting a summer rate hike on the table. lisa: the last meeting, there seems to be some kind of truce or agreement reached. they want to revisit that? steven: the only time they reach the agreement says when it seems to be in every's interest. the japanese feel that one of five is not in their interest to have this kind of truce. i think part of the next package, they want to have the option of cutting rates. --ch would certainly lower weaken the yen as well. don't think they will say anything to limit their ability to do monetary policy and walk away with a weaker yen. lisa: how low could rates go in
japan? steven: they said as europe. for them, it is important for the market cutting further. after the disastrous market reaction in january to their cut, the market -- they said you can't cut it any further. david: what degree of confidence to they have at this point by lori rates -- at this point by lowering rates? steven: it did not work because the market -- they walked away thinking when i do that again. the nikkei dropped the time. you don't have a rate cutting option. what they have to do is find a way of protecting their equity when they go for -- when they go into negative rates. did what they did. that is a discussion we will have, the rate differentials. steve englander is sticking with us. on itsup, the u.s. strongest weekly losing streak this year as the dollar gains

. we do have you with us. the good, the bad, the ugly. the battle of the ugly, which one is it for china right now. where is the by point for you when you start talking about destabilize china all over again? part of it is a chinese reaction on its own because when moved, they took the rest of the emerging markets with them. as a result, we have the volatility that everyone was concerned about. , in terms ofis seeing why depreciation -- they have done better when i said markets have been risk on. anothere depreciated emerging markets currencies. maybe in the own interest not to be aggressive, but calm emerging
markets down so that they don't end up depreciating. lisa: hold on. this is a really important >> now is a good time to allow china to depreciate because it is risk on. steven: they are much better off depreciating against other em currencies and a risk on environment. it is a big debate. the fed has decided that one hike can change for 2016. if they do two hikes, how will the e.m. react? destabilizing? jon: it is very important as lisa points out, a lot of people will be waiting to look at the e.m. fix. what are you looking at specifically in the fx market?
steven: i would look at the six -- the fix occurs. ,nd to see whether or not things that look like echos than what we saw in january and august. david: you have a centrally managed economy. what other tools to they have in their toolbox? to affect capital? steven: and the best of times, capital is 80% closed. they have more tools than neg 10 country does in terms of dealing with outflows. it is not perfect. if they want to, they can deal with it. the: the flipside is depreciating dollar, which we have seen, which could
thattially be a trend accelerates as the fed ramps up its rhetoric ahead of the june meeting. your perspective, earnings have been ok. they had not been as bad as expected. do you think this is all a positive fx effect from the weaker dollar earlier in the year that will be offset and potentially he raised later in the year from the stronger dollar? steven: they always have the option of hedging. lisa: why were they complaining about it for so long? really the question is the u.s. domestic economy. , theyial markets understand that the dollar is up. what they want to see is whether the growth rate in foreign currency terms it in the right direction. matters, butrate it is a one off type of impact. viewpoint, is
since they are, but the exchange rate than they were last year because the impact of the exchange rate on the u.s. economy has been well within the range of history, so it is not going to throw the u.s. into a recession or destroy the manufacturing sector. it is stable, but it is what you get from growing faster than anybody else. fascinating to me because we heard these companies coming out and saying the reason why our earnings are lower is because of the dollar. all of a sudden, you are seeing a boost in earnings and places like walmart. maybe the fed, you bring up a very good point, the fed seems to be, about this. -- the 15th to be calmer about this. lmerhe fed seems to be ca about this.

years whenn two mario draghi said he would boost met thes meet -- he has limit. julie hyman is here. what do we get for 3 trillion euros? julie: a whole lot of nothing. he said he would boost the balance sheet around 2012 levels around 3 trillion euros. goal is toadded, the spur inflation. here is a balance sheet and the white line. we reached that milestone. it is a problem -- this site is
inflation, so now we are looking at negative inflation. the blue line is inflation. essentially, mario draghi has not gotten what he has paid for. crux ofngs us to the the matter and the challenge with central banks -- their effectiveness with stimulus in achieving their goals. david: this is roughly october, november, and december of 2014. it is a huge diversions here, right? counterfactual, this would be lower if they had not done this? julie: you can argue that it is not the ec be's fault. here in the u.s., we should point out that we have seen an expansion of the fed's balance sheet and has held pretty steady. this one, the blue line is the fed's balance sheet and inflation.
they have gotten a little bit more. david: this may give mario draghi and argument. it starts to,. -- it starts to,. up.t starts to calm it is talking about contracting to some degree when inflation is finally starting to pick up, but not at 2%. david: they have not gotten what they want to go. lisa? lisa: in the next hour, from headwinds to tailwinds, bob doll joins us. what part of the market will rebound? isr two of "bloomberg " next.

quickly. his any group come forward to claim responsibility of this? >> not that we have seen. any kinds of claims need to be treated with a measure of caution because you don't want -- if it turns out to be terrorism, it would most likely be quite sophisticated. david: very wise. that is our north african bureau chief from cairo. jon: getting back to the markets, looking pretty resilient. julie hyman is looking at some of the stocks. julie: i want to look at some of the companies reporting earnings. deere stocks are down by 1% after they cut their profitable forecast for the year. even of a say sales will not decline as had been estimated. the forecast is giving investors positive.

booth. welcome. atm struck by the fact that a time when everyone is saying we need better stock pickers, you said stockpicking is not the answer in the long-term. why is that? david: there is no evidence that it has paid off. if you look at institutional money managers, inaccurate it, they holding market -- in aggregate, the hold a market. in order for one institutional investor, someone else has to have an inferior return. our approach is based on the idea of portfolio construction. we think people need to have a philosophy they can stick with like a personal philosophy. philosophy,a robust you probably won't be doing a lot of trading. nevertheless, what is important is the structure. most fundamental decision have
been stocks versus riskless assets. we spend more time on the structure. over the years, what has emerged from academic research is a notion of dimensionality of returns. there are certain threads that run to stop returns. and people say, where the returns come from? there is an underlying relation between risk and return, of course. identifying what those threats are has been the focus of research. lisa: a lot of friends will say they don't focus on the short-term noise and look for long-term friends to outperform. this is -- long-term trend that outperform. can you walk us through one specific successful thread you picked up on? and the financial gotturn in 2008, people

as an academic discipline. beginning when computers that developed in databases became available. a lot of hypotheses can really be tested out. a lot of the things that people took for granted turned out not to be accurate. david: but you have a pipeline directly in the academic community. how many nobel prizes have you had? david: four total. next time you pick up first i will give you some hints. what are people getting wrong now? david: the things people are getting wrong is the are getting nervous and then trading. systematically, people have a tendency to want to invest when expected returns are low and they want to get out of markets when expected returns are high. by the financial turmoil -- when

the last 20 years. jon: the commodity story, the infrastructure politics story, and canada front and center as well, is that story in the market or played out, or is there room to run? >> i am not sure if it is fully priced in. what we have is the reliance and overreliance on central banks. i think there is some question marks of the efficacy. you have a monetary policy plan insupporting the stance canada with deficit spending. they have repaired their roof when the sun was shining. we have a lot of wiggle room to move here. that is a backstop on growth if there is ever something of a slight fall back in oil prices, it is good to see there is a bit of a support coming from the federal government. jon: whenever there is a light meeting at the fed, a real-life

better earnings. that is the key, will earnings improve? >> i am looking at a chart that shows volatility on the chicago exchange index is increasing. it is increasing more than other asset classes. does this mean losses could be steep before they rebound? will we be stuck in this daily top? -- daily chop? bob: a whiff of concern, i think we are stuck in the chop. everyone is concerned over china, currency, oil -- it could happen. the oil is behaving itself. the dollar does, though it is creeping higher -- we need oil and the dollar to behave themselves to have a shot at the better earnings i'm hoping for. we have heard some people say it is because of the dollar.
it is weaker or stronger. others say maybe not. loyal might be a factor. how important is the u.s. consumer in looking at earnings? consumer is important. there is a dichotomy that is confusing people. job growth has improved, wages are beginning to improve, balance sheets are in good shape here the problem is they're not spending the money at bricks and mortar retailers. they are buying new homes, existing homes, cars, do it your self retailers. look at home depot and lowe's and how well their business is doing. consumers are being selective and spending a fair model of money. >> do you think home depot and lowe's are good bets? bob: i do. they have done well. their free cash flow story remains good.
i think their stocks can go higher. i would rather own them than try to bottom fish in a bricks and mortar retailer when you don't know if and how they will turn. we have been talking about a cyclical bear market going from sector to sector. where is the next sector within u.s. equities that will experience a bear market? bob: the bond-like equities, utilities have done very well. if nominal growth is getting better, real growth is picking up -- inflation. not a lot, but enough to talk about. you are watching the 10-year treasury move up. i think that puts a concern over these stall bond-like equities that could the the next ones that go into the barrel. david: going back to consumer discretionary, you said the consumer has a better balance sheet with more to spend.
they have to be willing to spend . do you pay attention to consumer sentiment? bob: absolutely. consumer sentiment has done better. more important is consumer behavior. they are spending money. consumers are spending more money and raising their savings rate simultaneously. they are being smart about how they do what it is they do. they will not spend beyond their means as we got used to in prior decades. it is not the consumer pedal to the metal. it is more selective. marketser, you said will fall before they rise. we have been talking to people that have been pointing out who say look, there have been so , it isarishness interesting it hasn't fallen more. there is natural support coming from companies buying that shares from the massive amount of central-bank money. what do you make of it?

management int irvine. let's talk the bond market. i want to look at the gap between the earning yields on stock and the earning yields on bond. it is interesting to me that there is a divergence that makes equities look cheap relative to bonds. is the bond market in struct if to you given the low rate environment? tobond market instructive you given the low rate environment? bob: it is. under waiting bonds makes sense and why our bond yields in the framework you just mentioned so low? it has to take us overseas. if you have negative interest rates, it is hard to argue that the 10 year treasury should be 250. year treasury
would have at least 50 basis points higher than we are today. >> bringing up foreign money, we have heard a lot about money from japan and europe coming into the u.s. toward fixed income. i do not hear it coming in to u.s. equities as much. is money going into u.s. stocks? bob: not much. they are buying bonds, which they feel sure about. equities, they are uncertain. that to our earlier conversation, there is so much uncertainty.h going into equities, viewed as risky, seems like a bad game. and you have the s&p 500 with a higher yield than the 10 year treasury, that doesn't happen often. it does argue in favor of stocks on a long-term basis. jon: given where the duration is in the equities, and how many
people have gone into bonds, that tells me when we have a bumpy ride in the bond market, people have to cover their losses. you look at the relationship that bonds and stocks will move in tandem? bob: if bonds are hit hard and fast, that will not be good news for stocks. it has to be over time. back to the earlier conversation, stocks will not do it without better earnings. if we have a modestly better economic environment in the u.s. and globally, not a lot, just modestly, that is good for bonds and slightly good for stocks. it will be a slow grind for stocks. andhat do people in japan europe have to see to have more confidence coming into the s&p 500? bob: if earnings are going to sh, it will be hard to get them to pay attention. as we look overseas, they look here.
political leadership is key. we have a lot of question marks they are. >> bob doll, thank you for your insight. david: we will turn to golf. phil mickelson is faced with one hazard. do you get that? jon: i do. i'm with you. david: the sec named him a relief defendant in an insider trading case. he agreed to pay back $1 million. joining us is bloomberg's financial crime reporter. why don't you start by explaining what that means. >> he is in the least amount of trouble of the other individuals involved. he has not been charged with anything. he does not have to admit guilt. all he has to do is pay back the proceeds that he earned from using the information he received. david: how did he get the
information? it starts with walters. he is a well-known sports better in vegas. he is a big amateur golfer. also have mr. davis, he used to be the chairman of dean foods. getsis where it interesting. he was passing interesting first-hand information about the earnings and outlook. different tanks that would help walters make money. david: the good stuff. keri: primo insider trading staff. very old school. they were using cell phones to communicate. we are going back to the 1980's. david: disposable phones. keri: he was doing this because he owed money to walters. owes: the chairman of dean money on gambling debts. keri: and it was a way for him to relieve some of those debts.
walter then goes to mickelson. he also had gambling debts. david: son of a gun. just say no to gambling and insider trading. thatssue with mickelson is the law, even before there was a change in insider trading laws last year which made it more difficult to prosecute, i do not think that applies to this. it would have been difficult to prove that he knew that that was inside information. you need that to convict someone. it was secondhand. if he says he didn't know and they can't prove it, that is why he was named a relief defendant and only ordered to pay back the money. >> did he agree beforehand? "i he have talks and said pay you $1 million, you lay off,
we are all happy?" keri: it is a negotiation. is they had any inkling of wrongdoing he would have been sued by the fcc or had much harsher charges. or the southern district who indicted walters would have come in. does this put this chapter behind for phil mickelson? keri: legally, yes. david: they will not go after him in the future? keri: unless something new comes out. it is likely closed. it could impact his endorsements and business issues, but he got a good deal. $1 million. david: well lawyered. thank you for being here. an: it takes a lot to run treasury trade. not since jfk was president have they demanded less compensation for long-term u.s. government
in europe we are up for the second straight week of gains, bouncing higher by one percentage point. very quickly, the dollar, the bloomberg dollar index after touching a seven-week high, the euro at 112.21. the dollar yen at 110.36. yields, maybe not a shift in yields, but the shift in sentiment over what the federal reserve may do. 10.86%. this is bloomberg "." time for an international battle of the charts. julie hyman taking on mark barton. what have you got? julie: i want to look at something that federal bank of new york measures. it is a measure of the 10 year term premium. the perceived riskiness of data security versus shorter data
security. going back to the 60's that is because the gap is the smallest since 1962. not only the smallest, but it is negative. -0.3 percentage point. that means that you are not seeing a perception of riskiness of longer data securities in this environment, even as the fed says june and july could be live and rates are going higher because we are seeing competitiveness of the u.s. treasury market. that is one of the things that has been driving the buying of treasuries or has put a floor under u.s. treasuries. there are some bond market professionals that say the level below zero, going negative, it's is theoretically overvalued, but folks are saying we could see more buying on the longer end of the curve. and this perception of not much riskiness.
jon: mark barton? mark: 1962, i'm talking about germany. that is what is going on with the german benchmark. dax felle you 11, the to a 16 month low declining 29% in last year's record high. it then embarks on a 19% rally through april, almost a bull market. it has fallen a 6%. it's a valuation is waning. this is the purpose of today's chart. timesx is trading on 11.8 estimated earnings. the stoxx 600 is trading on 14.72 times estimated earning. you do the math. -2.82.ion gap is the chart says everything you need to know.
that is a record valuation gap to the stoxx 600. investors are concerned about a slowdown in the global economy. .hat could hit the dax let's not talk about 1962, let's talk about the dax. enough? g #btv 1391. jon: he gets points for enthusiasm. , you get points for flair, but julie you win. like your chart but i am perplexed. i don't know why people are not buying german stocks. you had me until the dumping of 1962, which is the year of my favorite car. it goes to julie.
i will go with julie hyman because it is difficult to break out the individual components of yield. it many people talk about for that reason, the complexity. it is a big story in the treasury market and global markets worldwide. mark barton, i'm sorry. it is heartbreaking. julie is the winner. we will be joined by the sky ridge capital partner. how he will increase volatility and where the opportunities are across the globe. we are counting you down to the market open in the united states. futures positive across the board. markets rallying in europe. ♪

the company seeing challenges in create. .- in v8 and there was a weather-related disruption to the fresh carrots supply. david: oh my. julie: that was apparently an issue for campbell soup. david: thank you very much. it is time for the three stories that matter in markets. with us is skybridge managing partner reynald --managing partner ray nolte. the u.s. dollar heading for its best month in the year versus the japanese yen. john deere cutting its full-year profit outlook. the u.s. dollar rising against the yen for the third week. the longest stretch since august. the dollar is getting a boost from expectations the fed will raise rates in june. have your views on where the dollar will go changed this week as we have seen the fed minutes? ray: not dramatically.
we have been looking for dollar strength. it caused on the back of the fed backing away from the tightening . now they are putting tightening back on the table, you see the dollar pricing back in. david: you expect the dollar to strengthen through the year? ray: i would expect the dollar to strengthen. you will not see the magnitude of moves we have seen over the past year. it will be a more gradual move up. lisa: what do you think is the red flashing light to the fed that it has gone too far? ray: i think the fed added a third mandate. unemployment, inflation, and i think it is looking at a global stability and currency. that relates back to china. the chinese rmb. potential for devaluation in the chinese currency. if the dollar gets too strong because of the peg, that creates increased problems. they are balancing that.
that keeps markets on their toes. jon: how volatile do you think the space has been? we're looking at the g 10 versus the msx. how can the fed manage that over the coming months? ray: i think it is a difficult balancing act they have in store. that is why you get the rhetoric going one way, then they try to walk it back. the other keeps the market guessing and on their toes. do we get a june, july hike? do they go to press conferences every month? they will keep everyone guessing. lisa: we will discuss it more later in the hour as a number two, goldman sachs is holding it shareholder meeting. goldman sachs has been the worst performer on the dow this year, which is incredible considering what a powerhouse of revenue goldman sachs has been. it will continue to
shrink on wall street until it becomes a vestige of what it is today? ray: i think we are in a long-term cycle for the financial institutions. prop trading is gone and has been wound down. the volatility in the environment, risk departments are telling people to take less risks. the volatility in markets has taken away a lot of opportunity, because they are not allowed to position for it. across the board, not picking on goldman in general. jon: lloyd blankfein is speaking now. i can bring you one of the headlines that stands out to me. a refocusing on the cost of the economy doesn't improve. the banks struggling with a cyclical industry. revenue is down. they cut costs. when you have the fat, you take it out. what they need to
do. investment banking business seems to be off. ipo business is down. trading businesses aren't there. over the last 30 years, when that happens you cut costs. david: the question i have is triggered by jonathan's question, he called it " cyclical." if you're lloyd blankfein is the cyclical or a longer-term given what we have been through? do you cut costs or consider a fundamental change in strategy? ray: it is a long-term cyclical situation. you look at the regulatory environment, the post financial have aworld -- you generational change taking place. we are almost 10 years since the financial crisis. here we are, 8 years, close to a decade. this sentiment is like it was yesterday.
you have to get through, you are probably only halfway through. we call it post financial stress syndrome. lisa: do you think goldman sachs should go the route of morgan stanley which said the pool of revenue overall for trading has shrugged dramatically. -- has shrunk dramatically. we will cut across the board. you think goldman sachs is headed in the same direction? ray: to a lesser degree that some of the other franchises. lot of core businesses. the fact that the industry is shrinking and of the european banks are completely exiting, for leaves a bigger pie those that remain. goldman has a stronger position to take their share of the smaller pie. you see a differentiation from the banks and which niches they want to go after. jon: the profit outlook on
projections of weaker spending. a difficult one to answer, but there are companies you would look at two get a grip on what was happening in the world. and sectors do you look at to see what is happening with global growth? ray: i think global growth, it is in the same bucket. it is slow and sluggish across the board. we have seen that in the u.s. since the financial crisis, growing at 1.5% to 2%. the rest of the world struggling to get to that level, with the exception of china, which is a different story in the magnitude of their slowdown. everyone has to adjust to the capacity in the system and a generally sluggish growth outlook. david: another way to look at it is the commodity story, dealing with agriculture. it is a bayer issue with monsanto. consent are commodities
driving fundamentals within business in the downturn? ray: we had the commodity super cycle. it is deflated. we are going through a bottoming out phase in commodity prices. you will now build a base and slowly start to see gradual improvement. don't look for the spike or the hockey stick. it will be a gradual move higher. not dissimilar to oil, which is going through the same phase of bottoming out. we have had a bounceback. trade toll struggle to much higher. people talk about $60 as being l.e top on oi when we were in the 30's, everyone thought we were going into the teens. whether it is iron ore or commodities, they are going through a base building. the bases can last for a long time. david: those are the stories

credibility. clear they are responding to data and conditions. if the conditions are not right, it is difficult to pull the trigger. later in the year, the data and growth will be below trend, less inflation pickup, and it will be obvious they are on hold. jon: we will talk about the feedback loop. everyone i speak to, in london as well, an equity investor, fx strategist, someone in the bond market, there is agreement the biggest feedback loop is the fx market. you agree? >> i think that is part of the third mandate the fed has. looking at global strengths and of global markets. the interrelationships. they are taking that into consideration. i think they should go another round or two. we are closer to the next recession, not that we think that will happen in the next 12
months to 18 months. you need to get inflation modestly higher so they have the tool in their toolbox so they can cut. if they could build back to a 1% fund rate, they would love to do that. the market is not happy with that idea. if we get one or two rate cuts from now to the end of the year, they would be thrilled. i'm not sure they will. can: do you think the fed move if the markets tell them no? they want to. the conditions we saw in february would be difficult to move. the market coming under pressure . they can look past the equity market saying it has been at high level and has corrected. i can look past the dollar and focus on broader indices, but it becomes difficult for them to move. david: who was driving the bus?

points. we are poised for a fourth straight week of losses on the s&p 500. that is the volatile road to nowhere, as you hear the opening bell. high about 52 weeks ago. we really have gone nowhere. the yen is going into the g7. a weaker japanese yen. thosech happening for complaining in japan, who would like to intervene for a weaker currency. about 20 five seconds into it. let's get to julie. julie: we are about one year from our records we reached for the dow and the s&p. the dow, we are about 4.5%
below that level. with the dow, the s&p, and the nasdaq all in the green, the nasdaq leading the gains. losses are accelerating since premarket trading. john deere cut its forecast for its first full year. much asll not fall as was anticipated. that does not appear to be helping the stock, nor does the fact that we have seen a rebound in grain prices. we are looking at candor morgan, the pipeline operator. the company is trying to triple the pipeline with pacific markets. it got approval from two canadian regulators. it only rests to prime minister justin trudeau to approve the plan.
shares are up by about 1%. it looks like this is getting closer to that approval. in retail, we heard from foot locker and ross. them disappointing in terms of what analysts had been anticipating. comparable sales missing estimates. foot locker is still confident sales in 2016 will gain, but investors do not appear reassured. much, julie.ou so we are going to focus on a stock that has performed the worst this year -- that is goldman sachs. it has reaffirmed its commitment to its trading business. how long can it stick with this strategy? for more, we turn to sky bridge moore, who joins us from london. today is the goldman sachs shareholders meeting.
clearly, this is a concern. up the factought committedare staying even though revenues fall? mike: you are certainly hearing that from some investors. it is interesting to note that the pay plan for goldman sachs, it was 66% of the vote approval, which is much lower than in past years, even though they cut the pay awards for top executives for 2016. you are starting to see a little bit more pressure from shareholders. that probably goes to your point. lisa: there was a headline out of the meeting that lloyd blank committed even though revenues fall? mike: you are certainly hearing that from some investors. fine says they may refocus on cost if the economy does not approve -- improve. is this a concession that goldman sachs may make deeper cuts if the tech shop does not improve? i think he has giving himself some flexibility with that statement. they have already cut more than
is typical for them in this type of year. they have cut 10% of the trading staff. i think you are starting to see them make some concessions that trading is not going to bounce back as quickly. analysts are expecting a rough second quarter, as well. starting to be some acknowledgment that they have to keep returns high during this period. david w.: as i look at goldman sachs and think back about the last turning round, the banks that tended to do better where the wells fargo's and jpmorgan's that have standard consumer banking operations. goldman sachs does not have that part of the business. ray: i think that is where the regulators are trying to push the banks. to get back into more traditional banking businesses and out of the risk tanking businesses -- risk taking businesses. i was was struck -- lisa:
struck that there was a study that fixed income trading will come down by 14%. what is behind this? is there any chance this could rebound? ray: i think some of that is driven by technology. whether it is robo trading or online trading, you are taking it away from the purview that used to be the big banks and the investment banking firms and you are shifting it to the exchanges and onto these technology platforms. jon: investors cannot be happy. the question we just asked -- wells fargo is trading at 1.5 times. goldman sachs is trading at 0.8. our investors hitting back? what is going on? years,ver the last few
you have seen investors not give strong valuation to trading biz says -- businesses. ein would argue that they are not giving them the same business. while they are not as big, they are steadier. investors have not really bought into that theory. they continued to discount the trading businesses and put a higher valuation on the consumer businesses that have a steady your revenue stream. david w.: michael, you reported on goldman sachs and lloyd blankfein several times. is there anything that will cause them to go back to his management team to rethink some of this? mike: i don't think so. he is pretty confident in his strategy of what he likes to refer to as maintaining some option alley -- optionality.
if markets rebound, he wants to be able to jump onto that. while the stock has not done well, they have maintained returns better than their competitors. that has given them a little more flexibility. you may start to see that change. you have seen some acknowledgment with the cost cutting. david w.: thank you so much. bloomberg's michael moore. ray mcnulty, what is the future for a bank such as goldman sachs? ray: i think goldman will figure it out. they have been a real -- around for a really long time and i think they will do just fine. david w.: thanks very much. e.at is rate nolte -- ray nolt a debt deal ahead for cash-strapped puerto rico. ♪

that experience in dealing with public finance distress, which is a very unusual area of expertise. lisa: walk us through where we are in this bill. it did get some support from republicans. it did also get support from the obama administration. but it is not a done deal. kate: it has to pass the house. and that is not a given. for puerto rico and a lot of other situations in d.c. some of the critics of the bill do bring up very important problems. one that i thought was particularly interesting was representative jordan of ohio, part of the house freedom caucus -- he did bring up a really important point. he is concerned that this will push pensioners ahead of bondholders, which is legal precedent we have seen in detroit. educated some very
concerns surrounding the bill. certainly not a done deal. david w.: the bill has the support of paul ryan and republican leadership in the house. kate: that is correct. that has not happened before. this is really what makes this particular bill a milestone. lisa: your concern you brought up is very interesting. what is more interesting, possibly, is that the general obligation bonds are rising. why do creditors seem to be optimistic? kate: i think it is just any movement. at this point in time, just to see that d.c. can come to a deal at this point is such an improvement on what we have seen -- i have been following puerto rico for five years now. nothing fundamentally has changed on the island. , how do politicians want to deal with it, how to investors want to deal with it? it is a clear signal to the bond market that people are willing to compromise. david w.: what is the time horizon if it is passed?

[laughter] kate: it is like they did their homework. 'avid w.: some of the creditors representatives have been talking about this in favor of it. is the governor of puerto rico? kate: unclear at this point. all public finance becomes so politicized. the governor of puerto rico has become very hedged as to who he wants to support at what time. he does not know what he wants to do with his career and a couple of years. he is trying to figure out how the island feels about the control board. david w.: that is bloomberg's kate smith. jon: coming up, it is "bloomberg
markets" with mark barton. what is on the show? mark: the chief market strategist at jones trading is going to answer the question -- we have had a year since the s&p 500 reached that record high -- does that signal a bear market or are we about to enter a period of consolidation? the chief executive of richard ellis, we are going to look at the commercial market, the commercial property market, with her. i will be asking her whether international property investors are put off at head of the u.k. referendum. we will also be speaking to the of bernard arnaud. he is the man behind lvmh. his son antwaun will speak to us willsively -- antoine speak to us exclusively.
some think he is headed for the top job. you are already there. you are toorton, much. you are too much. what is the story you are seeing, mark? mark: shares are down. look at burberry. look at the other luxury retailers. look at lvmh. it is the slowdown in asian spending. it is a luxury-wide phenomenon. burberry does not have enough japanese stores. many of the chinese shopping in hong kong and moved to japan. wristwatches, leather goods -- it is an industry-wide phenomenon that is not getting any better. we will be asking mr. arnaud what he is going to try to do to turn it around. jon: i'm looking forward to that. ugly, ugly, ugly. let's get a check on the session.

into those dates and have yet to dig up? david w.: it also raises for john cryan the legal and compliance issues. he can't get these behind him. to get these seem things behind him, but what i thought was critical is that he has the investor backing. 98.5% backing in the vote. that is absolutely critical. that is what toppled anshu jain last year. investors were not behind him at all. if you have a strategy, that is one thing. if you have lost half the market value of the company, that is another. if you want to get a strategy through, you need that backing. david w.: good for him. mine had to do with cars. it turns out that a third of people trading in their cars, the car is worth less than is owed on the loan.
which is a big issue. this is a big issue for car companies. it affects demand for new cars. lisa: this is fascinating because a lot of people say, car loans are better than mortgages because people will pay them off the four they pay off their mortgage debt or other debt. they may have less recourse to resell their new car. david w.: in order to get people to buy the cars, they have stretched out the payments for a longer period of time. jon: it is a recalibration of expectations. the fed has something to prove. the minutes did just that.
what i won't say is that there was a radical reaction in the markets. yes, the curve recalibrated to some extent. i'm not looking at a market that is rattled. david w.: then you wonder whether there is a feedback loop. maybe we can go up. whereyou have bnp paribas their house view is, we don't believe you, whatever you say, fed. the market is dubious. jon: i'm going to guess that there are some economists at bnp paribas staying up very late. they are going to stick with it, from what they said today. coming up, a look at what is later on today. we will get a read on the housing market. existing home sales for april will be out. faber will join betty liu and mark barton for an exclusive interview later on. that does it for "bloomberg go."
