are seeing a decline in demand. let's switch to currencies and commodities. looking at oil and gold. oil is down .9%, near the lows of the day, coming off of highs this week when we saw an increase in u.s. oil supplies. as for gold, gold futures are down about .2%. they are continuing to fall. there is the chance that the fed rate hike continues. right now, this is down three days in a row. we're in for the third weekly loss. you for that.nk david: let's check the headlines. once donald trump supported restrictions on gun rights, and he criticized republican politicians who "walk to the nra line." but today, the organization is formally endorsing the likely

3:06 pm
in more than 150 news bureaus around the world. shery ahn: thank you so much. reported, u.s. stocks are holding their own after the s&p 500 drop yesterday. the fed minutes on wednesday set off a wave of sailing. david: it is still well up to february lows, up more than 12%. manley's chief equity strategist at wells fargo funds management. my biggest takeaway from the minutes on wednesday, probably not surprising to you, is how members of the fomc think there is a disconnect between what they are saying and what folks like you are seeing. what accounts for it? john: folks like me can have a bit of an ego. i always think that whatever i thought, janet yellen thought three weeks ago. the federal reserve has done a very good job. it is a tough thing to do. i think they will be data
3:07 pm
dependent it why wouldn't they be? why should they promise to do something? they will set rates as they think rates should be set. they will not try to restrain the economy. shery ahn: the s&p 500 erased this year's gains earlier in the week, but now we see a big rebound. what does that tell us? john: i think when the federal reserve is accommodative, they are trying to push money into the economy. in the middle of it was sort of get in the way, and when they're pushing money in, we tend to rise and be resilient. when they are pulling money out, the opposite is true. i do not think you should ask how many times the fed will raise rates this year he would you should ask if they will encourage or discourage economic growth, and that will determine how the money grows. david: i cannot resist the urge to read this line -- you said the stock needs a kick in the pants. sometimesll need that
3:08 pm
to move on. i think they're fairly valued. about 16 or 17 times forward earnings expectations. shery ahn: compare them to the u.s. and other markets in asia -- europe, i mean. john: i say they are cheap versus us rather than we are expensive versus them. look at the last 20 or 25 years. it does not seem extreme. 2000 was extreme. 1982 was extremely extreme. shery ahn: we see valuations and other places, say asia. where do you look for bargains? john: in europe. the thing about value, you have to realize things get cheap or expensive for a reason. if the reasons exist, so will the cheapness or expensiveness. you did not have much monetary pressure, no quantitative easing, very tight fiscal policy. those are changing. i think asia offers a lot of the same opportunities to bid
3:09 pm
further -- it is a bit further along in some ways and closer to the start and others. japan has tremendous value. if they could get it going, and mr. abe says -- shery ahn: the g7 is happening now. how about the yen? we are some weakness now, but a 9% boost this year. john: i have given up trying to predict currencies. end of thep at the data at strong economies tend to have strong currencies. and they get too strong and sort of weaken. it is not perfectly efficient, but it tends to wash up. , it sort of washes out anything more than a month or two. david: the degree to which you pay attention to when the fed will raise rates again, that is a conversation we have over and over again. is that the key question when it comes to monetary policy? john: no, i think the real
3:10 pm
question is whether they will try to restrain the economy. i think they will raise rates when they can do so without adversely affecting the economy. they will be data dependent, but they will not try to tighten at the end of the day, week, or month. shery ahn: thank you for that. next, mexico up approves the extradition of alleged drug kingpin el chapo guzman to the united states. we're live with the latest details, next. ♪

david: "bloomberg markets this is." a quick check of the markets.
3:13 pm
all the major indexes in the green to nasdaq up about 1%. the s&p 500 up about .5%. the dow up about .3%. back to the possible extradition of joaquin guzman, better known as el chapo. mexico's foreign ministry says the u.s. has guarantee the death penalty will not be applied to his mom. eric ahn: let's bring in martin, who is in our mexico bureau. how much of a surprise is this? eric: a big surprise. a lot of people thought chapo recapturedever be after he escaped prison for a second time in july of last year here at and mexico's previous attorney general said that chapo would be extradited to the u.s. only after he faced all of his charges in mexico, which he
3:14 pm
estimated at several hundred years. so this is a huge turnaround in the last several months in terms of the recapture of this month and mexico's willingness to send him to face justice in america. david: is month'-- guzan mont's lawyers say the legal process could take one to three years. talk about the cat of pressure the u.s. applied to the mexican government to make this happen -- talk about the kind of pressure the u.s. applied. eric: there is the issue of national sovereignty in terms of the drug war and behold it has had on mexico. the number of deaths, kidnappings, the violence, and a desire by the government to try here.nde -- guzman after the second prison escape, there was more willingness to extradite some other suspects and a feeling of renewed or a new type of cooperation with the u.s. and new recognition that perhaps the best outcome to face
3:15 pm
be to send himd to the u.s. and have him go through the process there. shery ahn: we're hearing that his lawyer will appeal. what are the chances of him winning? there are a lot of appeals process is available in mexico. it is something that could take a very long time. but most observers say this is a case where the u.s. and mexico have strong legal ground for extraditing chapo. and ultimately, all of the potential measures that could be presented by his defense team on that prevent him from being sent to the u.s. and facing trial. they say either texas or california. david: what sense do you have about how the mexican people feel about the prospects of this happening? are they interested in having this take place in mexico
3:16 pm
itself? eric: i think there is a lot of willingness to see chapo extradited. there was a lot of concern about what his two escapes showed about corruption and the rule of law in mexico. so i think you will find very few people that think, ultimately, the only way to bring him to justice is through the mexican system. i think most people on the street would say they have tried to keep him twice and he has twice as game, so perhaps trying a new strategy and a maximum security prison in the u.s. is a better way to go. david: eric martin, thank you for joining us from mexico city. i want to talk now about the way that television is headed. shery ahn: the media landscape is changing, and we now have lucas, who wrote about this very change. tell us about we -- about how we're seeing this shift and
3:17 pm
evolution with broadcasters and streaming companies. lucas: one of the big trends this week when the tv networks of giving presentations about their shows, they have been an arcane procedure that is the ability to offer more shows on demand. show thatt a new comes on and you hear a lot about it. at first. watch it with a lot of shows, a view try to catch up on it, you can only go back three or four episodes and cannot start in the beginning. so you cannot catch up on it, so you will wait until it goes on netflix, amazon, or hulu. the tv networks wants to make it so they have more rights and can offer a full season, fully stacked, if you will. shery ahn: this is great news for me as i binge watch tv. david: it is like a psychological shift. worried aboutere
3:18 pm
this option diminishing the amount of people watching the shows in real time. of the research suggests the opposite. there are many people that binge watch, like you. i was discussing this at lunch today. what you have seen this year are these big media companies, after watching the success at netflix and seeing how investors have freaked out about their own future, they are trying to combat the rise of netflix by different means, some by going into these smaller bundles of channels here in this case, offering more on demand is another response. shery ahn: who is benefiting the most from this change? what happens to conventional pay-tv? lucas: first and foremost, the consumer, because a becomes easier to watch what you want. the hope of the media companies and cable providers is that they will also benefit. comcast has been wanting to be networks to get these rights, because it gives them a way to offer some thing that netflix
3:19 pm
already has. they want to be able to tell their customers that if you want to be able to catch up on a shore watch anything, you can hear hear it you do not need to use some other service. you were there for the detail and the presentation of the shows coming up. there was an interesting moment. you were talking with agents for thiswood talent that said season stacking is a something now making or breaking a lot of deals. lucas: for a big hit like "empire," they will not cancel it because it is so popular. but if a tv network is choosing between two program's and they have backing rights for one and not the other, they will stick to wonder they have the rights. i was surprised that one agent was very blunt, saying she feels like her clients show to not survive because of that. sory ahn: lucas, thank you much. now i know i will probably be
3:20 pm

3:24 pm
fourth of july. the markets tend to get nervous, so we have to wait and see. for me, 16 is a key pivot. but the vix has traded between 20 and 12. so watch 16. as long as we remain low that, the vix is a downward trend and the market hasn't upward -- has an upward buy in. ramy: we got positive news for a slew of companies. gap, urban outfitters era do you think that is more of a blipi in a sea of red? retail stocks have not been doing very good. >> obviously. it has been funny how this has been a slow trend, but it accelerated with the shift to andrew net shopping and how retail shops have not been doing well. i am lookinghe way at that segment is, i do not
3:25 pm
care where people show up, look in visa -- visible gain from a transaction, whether it is internet or in bricks and mortar stores -- visa will gain from a transaction. ramy: you are saying that people whether they go to brick and mortar or whether they go online. we are seeing folks buying things. how will visa break out of this? >> if you look at the overall chart, i look at this as a pause in the visa trend. visa has gone up 300% in the last five years and is now unchanged. we have been trading between $70 and $80 for the last year. $75 and weeks, between $80. a breakout of $80 could lead to $90. so i am looking at the $75 level, and i think visa has a lot of potential.
3:26 pm
people are still shopping and spending money, but competition is so great. every neighborhood in america has the exact same stores. it has been very homogenized. ramy: thanks so much for joining us. david: breaking news here -- there was a shooting on west executive drive outside the white house. house currently on lockdown. the press office pointing out that the president is not in the white house. and again, the u.s. park police confirming a shooting on west executive drive near the white house in washington, d.c. shery ahn: still ahead, how will the doomed egyptair jet that saying affect airline stocks? ♪
