false choices. is a boringolicy issue. you know the burden of paperwork gets heavier and heavier. it is a crisis because policymakers have been focusing on what have we been doing wrong. i will not bet on it. david: it seems like the conversation when it comes to the affordable care act, the question is, do we repeal the law whole scale? why doesn't that conversation happen across government? either/ornot an conversation at the micro level. >> they want to hire more people and yet the law has made it much more expensive. bankrupt thel not country. what will is these entitlements.

to be knowledgeable about these markets and we cannot police things that we do not know about. if you have suspicion, let us know. something the agency never had before. if you help us spot bad behavior, there could be a big payout down the line. >> handing out whistles. what is the goal? what youlinger and see might hear and see what might be happening? questionnaire china to be more proactive. some people still say it still haunts the office and they want to make sure they are out in front on these kinds of things. legacyyou mentioned the

what will happen the following week. we will clarify things a little better. the market may be will move in june. >> do you think given what you're saying, that the rally is justified? >> i think right now it is -- we have pushed off and tested the high against the range. it will be interesting to see if we can get through here. i think if they actually move theer rather than later, market will have a difficult time maintaining the valuations. >> you are looking at a bearish spread? >> i am. looking out to august because that gets you pass the next teedo's rate decisions. very inexpensive right now given
the current market. a nice protective put spread here. if you break through that level, i think we're going to that level possibly lower. do you find the sentiment is as broadly negative as it has been? it is sort of a hated rally. is that the case, do you think? case appears to be the here it is the undecided vote that is having a difficult time influencing the market one way or the other. you look at the last couple of months. it allows you to put the trade on for better pricing. there is opportunity.
mark crumpton has those from our newsroom. mark: donald trump says an audit critical of hillary clinton's use of a private e-mail server is devastating but the likely democratic nominee insist it will not affect her campaign. here she is in an interview before mr. trump spoke. ms. clinton: there may be reports that come out but nothing has changed. it is the same story. i used a personal e-mail and many people did. it was not at all unprecedented. i have turnover all my e-mails and no one else can say that. i have been open about doing that and have -- will continue to be open. it will not affect him to campaign or my presidency. general found ms. clinton ignored clear guidance that this could lead to
vulnerabilities. that is according to the latest online poll for bloomberg politics. toily incomes from $30,000 $75,000 in ohio and wisconsin. to 39%. a key player in the impeachment of president bill clinton is being demoted for allegedly handling sexual assault claims from a football team. will remain chancellor. also planning to fire its football coach as a result of the investigation. yearsnt five investigating bill clinton,: the myth -- culminating with the monica linsky scandal. used tear gas to break up violent clashes and dispersed
crowds protesting a labor reform law. police say they made 19 arrests taking part in the protest. they are demanding that westlaw's latest reforms he scrapped. one would make it easier to fire. global news 24 hours a day powered by our 24 hundred journalists and one and 150 news bureaus around the world. back to you. in 30 markets close minutes. abigail doolittle is live at the nasdaq. abigail: we have the nasdaq up slightly after flipping between gains and losses today, trading in a tight range, trading in extreme fashion are the shares of pharmaceuticals plunging in the worst day since 1999 after a decision not to test a drug method two companies are
developing together for a rare heart condition. it is in fact the worst performer in the nasdaq composite and also the third worst drag on the index. the worst percentage performer on the nasdaq after the storage company missed estimates for its april quarter and guided july estimates below consensus by smudges 24%. -- .4%. much as 20 -- 24%. he says he sees a devalue situation. one of the top percentage performer's the nasdaq today are shares of netflix. netflix is up five days in a row, its longest winning streak in more than a year. reports -- stock are some are mentioning netflix has a possibility. a report on weaker international subscriber growth.
scriber growthys internationally is expected to drop 15% year-over-year in the second quarter, and of course, this will not help offset the u.s. market. netflix will be higher but the may haveal picture investors looking more at the numbers over the glossier news we had in recently. david: we will talk about apple more in a second. that that strength will continue? -- >> we see the trend is reversing. that is bearish. reversers have been in a tug-of-war in the last six or nine months. volatile strings are up and down. the recent strength has taken the stock back up toward the top
of a range. the sellers are right there. it appears unless the buyers gather huge momentum and strength, the sellers are more likely than not to push netflix back down probably below $100 at least in the near term. david: thank you so much. let's explore this more with cory johnson. here to talk about apple's media ambitions. there is a report apple is interested in time warner how much of a surprise was that to you? -- cory: that all in. it is interesting when you look at the big four players in over the top service, netflix, hulu, , then prime, and apple only one not making original content.
dr. dre and house, but outside of that, they have not been a lot in terms of investment in their own content. we know a year ago they negotiated with the likes of cbs trying to put together a service. they would offer subscribers of apple tv what is known as skinny bundle. i do not think those go together well as words. without espn or some of the to paypeople do not want for, it would be a lot cheaper. it fell apart. they could not start a deal that was cost effective for them. those deals fell apart and apple said it was no longer pursuing the business plan. we can see the ambitions were serious. david: i imagine hbo would be the one that is greatest to them. cory: hbo has had a great success record.
bombsx has had a lot of and some successes. amazon has taken a different approach where they put all of islets on the service to see how people like them. and see what the reaction will be. my favorite example they have done which has been very successful for them, renew it for a third season. use that data to and they base this series on these books. a very successful show as a result because they reached the right audience. apple has thatf data advantage but it could be interesting to see them be a real player. vid: why is it apple has had the struggle so late in the game? of those any content creation, behind these three other players? cory: apple would say they have
never been first at anything. they were not the first cell phone or pc maker or mp3 maker. they just say we do it better. there is something to be said for that. those services efforts have struggled in the way apple would not have liked. is there a danger here that by getting in when they are getting in, a point of saturation, so many people making new content and spending money creating new content? cory: i bought a camera truck, have i ever told you this? with specialck holders for camera equipment. it would take about three years to break even. on the road every day. these are the glory days right now. every are is working, every shooter is shooting. every camera truck is being used.
what else will i do? if i am making content, why would apple be an appealing outlet for me? cory: they have a bit -- a big reach. it is a sellers market now in terms of content. all the best names of people doing things, it is hard to build that up or be good at it. as a result, a time warner acquisition or something like that would make sense given their ambitions. in terms oft drift what apple does and what they do well. looking at services and recognizing there in a saturated cell phone market, it could start to get weird. david: spell trouble. all right, thank you. gears from apple and google to tech giants. dominating around the gold -- around the globe but it is
facing challenges. joining me now with more from san francisco, what is the problem here is you see it? >> the word is fragmentation, a real problem for android. it basically means there is a massive amount of android phones out there, way more than iphones. there are a lot of different versions of the operating system -- the basic album is problem is google wants to get its web service out to as many as possible. when they release something new, it does not really go to all these phones or operating systems, which means it is moneymaking tools, first seen when you look at android in total. david: surely this is something they could have seen. is it something they regret now? think it has always been a problem. starting in 2007, they are
chasing the iphone and took a completely different approach and tried to make it as open as possible and get as many other companies involved and compete with apple at -- with apple as possible. there is about one point 4 billion active users. it has been a huge success. david: what can they do at this point? they need to do a, nation of carrots and sticks, which means on the stick front, they need to really pressure the wireless people, and the companies who make android phones like samsung, and need to try to say, when there is a security patch up or the new operating system with great features on it, they need to persuade these other partners to upgrade all the phones out there already. that is a big challenge.
is security paramount here? thin end of the ledge and google is using that to their advantage. a big shock to the android ecosystem last year. on that atocusing least for the moment. when they are releasing android security patches about once a of the big phone makers like samsung and lg have committed to doing monthly somedes for their phones, of the other smaller players have not bothered to commit to that. they have a lot of work there. the idea is if they could get people updating for security, then they could say, it is the same system for the operating system. david: thank you very much. , a surprisext
way employees get performance feedback. they will start a pilot program where workers get reviews more quickly. this is obtained by bloomberg news. it scores employees on a nine point scale and they are more focused on strengths and weaknesses. microsoft and facebook are teaming up to build an underwater internet cable across the atlantic ocean 4100 miles will serve between america and southern europe. we operated by an affiliate of the spanish television station. airlines has airlines to nigeria next month. united is ending the flights because of weakness in the energy sector. the last flight will be on june 30. that is the business flash update. a matter -- major shakeup of the carlyle group.
half-brother of the former french president. what do we know about the circumstances? i >> -- i cannot think of a guy more well-known in the banking world then bolivia are -- olvier sarkozy. they have not commented on it yet, but he did some of the biggest deals in the 2000. he did it sale of sally may, creation of bny mellon. since he joined carlyle group, they had formed bankunited, dustman felt, they raised money. he was very established, seemed like he was in it for the long run. but surprised recognition. david: no one more broadly known that is relationship with mary cables.
so he shied away from the spotlight? reporter: he has shy away from the financial press, certainly. this is the guy you might think likes to do his own thing. quite intrapreneurial. -- entrepreneurial. you think about things he has done outside of carlisle. last year he created a company called up in art fair finance -- athena art finance. this is a lender to owners of high-end art, he did it on the side, brought carlisle in. would not be surprised if he took a larger role there, maybe full-time. he likes to do his own thing. maybe he was not comfortable with the confines of the carlyle group. pretty traditional private equity firm. you work with your team, you do deals for your fund, that sort of thing. david: so how big a deal is this vacancy, for carlyle group to
not have him? reporter: carlyle group has had a lot of departures recently. they are not all related, but it is fair to say carlyle needs to think more about its retention of these high-profile dealmakers. mr. patrick, who oversaw the credit and groups, he left. another left earlier this year. hole. leave a whole -- there are issues for the investors. they will be working through some of these issues for the foreseeable future. david: thank you. coming up on "bloomberg markets," a taser u.s. foods. -- taste for u.s. foods. here are the major averages, not a lot of movement. 0.8%.wn 8% --
♪ david: markets close in 10 minutes time. julie has your check. julie: we talked about the concentrated range, second-highest of the year. here we have it in the clothes, still the case. all the average is little changed. -- averages little changed. at volume. volume by sector versus the 20 day average. it can see all the 10 sectors are declining in volume versus the average, in particular materials. about 30%, and health care is around the same figure. let's also take a look at the various sectors moving. utilities is the biggest gain after seeing a decline yesterday . materials now on the downside, pulling back 1%. losers, let's look
at the individual basis, dollar tree really surprising for the upside today. really bucking a decent downtrend. dollar general is doing the same, and hp coming out with estimates that beats. and on the downside we have earnings losers to mention, issuesjewelers showing in retail, cutting the sales forecast for the full year. csr a, provider of government i.t. services, and netapp as well. david: thank you so much. death ipo has been pretty weak for u.s. foods. it is jumping in the first day of trading. we see it up 9%. alex covers this for bloomberg news and joins me now.
tell us about this. reporter: you recall u.s. foods is the biggest should bidder behind -- distributor behind cisco. -- sysco. the federal government finally blocked a merger because of antitrust issues. now we have been going public, raising more and what has been the biggest corporate ipo this year. also a big day for me, we have three other companies listing two big sponsor backed companies listing. with u.s. foods and that is going out today, we had the busiest week of the year this year. david: you wouldn't talk about truly oh? reporter: we had these for stocks of trading this morning. they filed this morning, they make cloud-based applications for companies like uber or
whatsapp. this is really interesting because of what the landscape has been this year. 44% of the companies that went public in the u.s. have been private equity backed like u.s. foods. we have one venture capital backed a technology company go public, acacia. and with the better activity we've seen in the last four or five weeks, it seems there is more momentum with some of these smaller high-growth companies are willie out -- twilio looking to go public. david: i know when we talked last time read work resorts was coming out -- red rock resorts was coming out. reporter: it has so well -- not done so well. acacia, the technology company i mentioned is up more than 30% for some of the venture back to check companies.
and you look across the board, u.s. foods is up, 9%. cotivity is down, a health care company. so it is a bit of a mixed bag. because we have been so busy and given us a few data points, there is some excitement, but i talked to u.s. stock exchange president tom farley, and he said june will be when people will be paying attention when you look at a gauge and the rest of the year. it is only been 36 corporate ideas so far this year. david: thank you. that is it for "bloomberg markets." not much -- ♪
alix: u.s. stocks mixed as we head to the holiday weekend. brent in crude suppressing $50. but the question is, what you miss? scarlet: we speak with dominic quantum who says white there would be a rate increase in july better than june. alix: and pressing the reset button for the gold default market. the $9 billion euro bond sale. reporter: and el niño comes to an end, la niña may be the next global weather pattern. we look for the impact on global markets. scarlet: we begin with markets as alex mentioned, a mixed day for u.s. equities. a little changed when you see how they ended the session. this is after a strong rally. that kind of faded as we head to the holiday weekend. if you look at the industry gr
