big lives overnight. the biggest drop since around march on the nikkei to 25. the market is doing its thing. the fx market response with a stronger japanese yen. up 1.84%. a weaker japanese yen off the back of a decisive election with the prime minister over the weekend. does that mean for his stimulus package? we will discuss that to the program. a bond market on friday was fascinating. even with the solid jobs report out of the u.s. -- that will be a topic of discussion. yields on the session, the belly of the curve, up three basis points. to wrap things up, wti is a little bit softer on the session. we trade at $44.92. alix: the risk on rally continues. we want to go around the world
7:03 am
and check in for in-depth coverage on our top stories. enda curran is in hong kong. andlet fu is in london yelena shulyatyeva, post jobs report. we have u.k. politics developing fast and furious. sterling moving higher on reports that andrea leadsom could be retiring? to get: she was supposed ready to speak at 12:00, that hasn't pushed back to 12:15. that will mean that theresa may will win the leadership contest in the conservative party. it is not clear whether there will be a party membership vote to ratify this. mark barton and i were talking about the ramifications and it would mean that theresa may was the only candidate to be the next prime minister in the conservative party. and it is not necessarily woulding she wants -- she
7:04 am
want a proper race to make her case and be properly elected. in this instance, if she just becomes the next prime minister, she really doesn't get to make her case. she has less of a political mandate. alix: interesting, her viability in the market. u.k.ll street meets politics, we have george osborne making his way to businesses today. what can we expect? scarlet: it is a global roadshow. he will try to win over u.s. investors. he has already met with investors from goldman sachs and jpmorgan to defend london status. travel this month people to asia, singapore and china. his message is to woo investors and to tell them that london and britain is open to business. he reinforced that message with an op-ed in the wall street journal that discusses attracting private investment.
7:05 am
for instance, infrastructure such as new roads, high-speed railways -- what we can expect to hear from george osborne is an emphasis on spending cuts and tax reduction that have been part of his hallmark. he says he aims to cut the u.k. tax rate to 15% or lower from the 17% that it is set to reach. i a point of contrast, six years .go, the tax rate was 28% alix: thank you. scarlet fu joining us in london. obviously the market action started in asia today. jonathan: it did. interesting moves with the pound. equities up 20% from a february low. the attention is very much on asia. following a weekend election in japan and a decisive victory for the prime minister's party. and joins us now.
7:06 am
talk to me about the win and the consequences? enda: good morning. this is a clear win for prime minister abe. he is taking on the green light for fresh fiscal stimulus. we don't have the details of the measures yet but it will involve spending being rolled out over the coming months. such a member why japan needs to do spending. we are talking about the .hird-largest economy this year alone, the yen has searched 20% and that is hurting exporters, the backbone of japan's economy. it hurts their expansion plans and they don't want to increase wages. so when you take that altogether and you take his big win, it gives him a green light to push ahead in the fiscal spending side of things. we will see if he delivers on the structural reform side of things. jonathan: are was looking at
7:07 am
stimulus in terms of holding a bridge? what about the reforms that go with it? will they be delivered? pace ofthink the structural reforms have left many disappointed so we will have to see if he steps up. since see if he gets distracted into wanting to make changes to the constitution. that could become something of a diversion for him. me say here -- guess who came to lunch today? ben bernanke was in tokyo. some people are reading this as a signal that perhaps they are for guidance on what to do in the future. jonathan: thank you very much. and occur in from hong kong. david: you would like to hear about that conversation. jonathan: i would like to be a fly on the wall. david: we will come back to the united states, we had surprising jobs numbers come out on friday. we are joined now by yelena shulyatyeva to talk about those
7:08 am
numbers but the yield didn't come up at all? and looking this morning at w.a.r. p in the terminal, there ina 4% raise chance coming july. what would it take to move the numbers? yelena: the payroll report for june was clearly an encouraging development. but if by no means puts the july meeting back on the table. it comes back after significant deceleration in the previous few months in a payrolls. and it might not be sustained. i think that it still shows us that the pressures remain limited and it should give the fed some comfort that they will proceed very cautiously. but at the same time, it also assures them that the domestic economy is doing ok. david: so besides the wage pressures, the other one is the
7:09 am
job anticipation rights. they remain somewhat depressed low what graphics would indicate. is that an important factor in what the fed looks at? absolutely. that is another factor that will give the fed some hope that there is slack remaining in the markets. developmentsitive that the latest report showed us. anticipation is increasing. and it comes on the back of some increase sentiment. finances are looking better and better and that might encourage them to get get back into the labor market and try to look for a job. david: thank you. that is bloomberg's yelena shulyatyeva. that's get an update on what is making headlines outside the business world. outheresa may is laying what she calls a different kind of conservatism as she tries to
7:10 am
become the prime minister. they outlined her vision for a fair economy. on workers her work on the board and pay finding. and she said monetary policy has helped homeowners at the expense of those who cannot afford to buy. germany will take on greater military leadership in global conflict according to plans for the country's first overhaul of the security policy in a decade. angela merkel's government has already taken a conservative stance. it has armed kurdish rebels in iraq and helped with airstrikes in syria. there was another protest in aden rouge against police killings. as many as 40 people were arrested for blocking a highway last week. less week a black man was shot and killed by police officers in baton rouge. president obama heads to dallas tomorrow to meet with the families of five police officers who were killed.
7:11 am
global news, 24 hours a day. powered by our more than 2600 journalists, in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. jonathan: thank you. coming up, is the race for the next uk prime minister about to take a big turn? andrea leadsom will make a statement in a few short moments. we will head there live when she begins speaking. this is bloomberg. ♪
7:12 am
7:13 am
jonathan: another twist and turn in the race to be the next uk prime minister. simon kennedy joins us now from london. andrea leadsom is making a statement right now in the united kingdom. talk me through what we can expect. the bbc sheding to will be pulling out of the race to be prime minister. she was down to the last two.
7:14 am
it is not confirmed. jonathan: looking at the reports from this statement, they are saying the leadership race is undesirable. they need a new prime minister in place as soon as possible. i'm sure everyone at bloomberg has got around a table to talk about this. if she drops out of the race, what does that mean to theresa may? prime instantly become minister? simon: the word last week was they didn't want a coronation. they wanted to wait until the for the 150,000 members to have their say. like ad now look coronation but whether there is a legal rule in the party, i don't know. this would suggest that theresa may -- if no one runs against her -- she is the
7:15 am
next prime minister. the headline -- andrea leadsom withdraws from the leadership race. that is the headline right now. she assures mayo of full support and withdraws from the tory leadership contest. walk me through something. this can be misguiding something but but what happened today on the sterling chart. any dots between theresa may being the sole candidate for the tory leader uk prime minister and what happens in markets after that? simon: i think you can. and the timing of that leads to the reports. two thoughts. this delivers greater certainty if theresa may is the next prime minister. we will now know that sooner rather than september 9. there are a lot of questions about who is in charge of britain at the moment and it
7:16 am
would answer that. he second reason and a more cynical 1 -- theresa may was part of the remain campaign. quite a quiet member of the theresa make repaying campaign. willid promise she perceive the referendum decision and withdraw from the european , and she was against andrea leadsom who was a vocal member of the brexit campaign. so there may be price action there with the. that theresa may won't be as probe brexit as she has maintained she will be. certainly not as much as andrea leadsom. simon kennedy joining us from london. the headline now -- andrea leadsom withdrawing from the prime minister contest. leaving theresa may to be be sole candidate. another big twist in a big race. david: quite a drama.
7:17 am
i wonder what this might do about the timetable. and whether this offense is the entire timetable. to say there will be a prime minister sooner and we need to act? jonathan: theresa may herself said not until the end of the year. so if she is concerned as the prime minister -- and i stressed she is not that yet -- she is just the sole candidate -- you wonder but she said not until the back end of this year. that and you could argue the pound rallying is a reflection of that kind of movement in the markets. david: we will bring in dan moss now. this is right in your area. it does this mean, globally for the market? dan it is another example of a global economy that is expanding and taking some hits. course.not knock it off
7:18 am
at the same time, there is not a lot of momentum there. it is really a question about who is in charge of the u.k.. you could argue that mark carney is in charge. they were hers for this and they planned for this. they have been clear about the intentions of the bank. so what does that mean for thursday? many economists predict a quarter-point cut. thisu go back to earlier year and last year, many people are talking about the u.k. getting to the point of increasing. alix: right, we were debating whether the fed or the year we were the strongest data point. dan: right and that hasn't played out. david: expand this out a little bit. there is a bloomberg news piece
7:19 am
out today on the drift economy. dan: this tells us it is a global economy which, overall, has defied the naysayers. it took some hits. we have guests on the show and some beds. into seven years now and it is true of the major components of the economy. andu.s. hasn't gone back china hasn't imploded but there is not a lot of momentum there. point, josht shapiro is joining us. you could make the same case but you are much more negative when it comes to the u.s.? joshua: moore in 2017 then this year. we see things unraveling in 2017. and that is on the back of declining profit margins. pressure on the corporate sector
7:20 am
that we think will result in aggressive cost-cutting that will weigh on the labor market. of recessionnd does this wind up looking like? joshua: it is hard to say. alix: is it steep? joshua: i would think in the beginning it is not steep because we are not coming off of a boom. it is a withering on the vine kind of thing. the fed has a very small window if they are going to move. just about to begin earning season. a number of economists to come in here say that they think they are looking towards good earnings because energy, year over year will be better. and the dollar was too strong. what do you find wrong about that analysis? joshua: i don't see anything wrong with it in the second quarter. jobs data isverall better in q2. i think what you want to look at is the overall trend. if you bounce off that, the
7:21 am
trend is still downward interns of corporate profit margins and we would expect that to continue overtime. alix: this brings us to a little bit of the u.k. and the u.s. which leads us to japan. a vote of confidence for abenomics. does this actually wind up moving the needle? it was a big vote of confidence for a human. in japan, the opposition parties are desolate. we talk about the u.k. labour party being in a bad place but in japan, much more dire straits. yes, another japanese fiscal stimulus package. widespread expectations that the boe is going to ease. we have heard it before. and it keeps hanging in there. the japanese downturns tend to not be sharp. deep.ds to not be they tend to be shallow but they are not getting much traction
7:22 am
either. in a population where the demographics are working against them, it is awfully tough to get to lift off without massive support. david: so why haven't the attempts in the past worked? does it tell us anything about this one? joshua: in japan, it is demographics. do something that changes the demographics in that country -- which means immigration -- there is nothing they can really do. alix: this ties together with what we started with with u.k. politics. there is a huge inability and central banks to actually get any kind of momentum within their respective economies. you wind up having political opposition which promises something different but it doesn't wind up moving the needle. what is the end result of this? is it all breaks it? is that the outcome? if we go back through the postwar decades, we are used to seeing a singular growth driver.
7:23 am
whether it is japan in the 90th 70's, the u.s. in the 1980's-19 90's. china in the early part of this century. there is no theme. we are just drifting along. one more thing that you add to the mix, on friday we will be talking about china gdp figures which will be out. again, go back to the start of the year. people were talking about a recession in china and an implosion but that hasn't happened. it is not powering ahead either. david: what could be the next main driver? let's go back to japan. the about women in workforce? that was a main driver to increase productivity in the united states. other other drivers that could get the economy going again? joshua: it is hard to see that in japan. they need more young people. their demographic profile. the only way to do that is to
7:24 am
start having babies and it starts to take a while it while before you have an effect. are you allow young people into the country which they don't have any intention of doing that. david: the u.s. is a large driver of global economies. are there potential drivers? we did have the driver of women in the workforce. either other things waiting in the wings that could trigger increases in the economy? joshua: we need a lot of structural reform which requires political leadership and people working together. and that is hard to see in the near term. i think in the united states we will see more pain before we get to the other side and get politicians who do what they need to do. monetary policy is over. the fed and every other central bank in the world has done what they can do. alix: that is a great tie into what we talking about in the u.k..
7:25 am
future probabilities. -- this isate hike for the u.k.. we're looking at a 70% chance of a cut in july. it keeps growing. a 90% chance of a cut in a year. this means nothing then to the growth of the economy? joshua: i don't see where does a lot with growth. interest rates are not the problem here, except that they are too low. alix: wow. ok, a great wrap up. a lot to talk about in the u.k., the u.s. and japan. his piece on the bloomberg, don't miss that. leadsom, one of the leading candidates to be the next prime minister in the u.k. has pulled out of the race. paving the way for theresa may to become britain's next prime minister.

they say they have found a different lover but have jilted the europeans but don't want to pull the trigger. a lot of uncertainty about the bank of england. a bloomberg poll showed the economists divided. week and ia cut this onnk mark carney will err the side of a preemptive strike. jon: are you concerned that the only leader in place is the governor of the central bank? we don't have a prime minister. should that be a concern? there is a powerback -- vacuum -- a power vacuum. i think it's a short run issue. clarified inl be the next couple of weeks. --hink the u.k. will trickle
7:33 am
trigger article 50 and it will trigger a gradual divorce proceeding and then we will fight over custody. trickles the sterling -- triggered an article 50? >> many people don't think that england well. there is still hope out there and people talking about a second referendum. most likely, the u.k. will trigger article 50 and even if they don't, they have solid relationships with the eu especially now that we see the chancellor of the exchequer u.s. toto the campaign about english tax levels almost down to the irish tax levels. it's not a war of words but i think it shows the escalation of tensions. david: we can be sure that the pound is volatile.
7:34 am
what event do you think will settle the pound down? will we figure out what the negotiations lead to? >> i'm not so sure it settles down. you have to think about the currency market differently. period of high volatility is followed by more volatility but eventually it comes back down. there are a number of uncertainties beside the political situation. u.k.ad does the yo economy get hit? the move seems more important than the level. when does the u.k. consumer psyche stabilize? then i think sterling will stabilize. i predicted at $1.27 and below that $1.50. will the euro stabilize?
7:35 am
european side is still lurking. the italian bank situation is only the tip of the iceberg. three large banks are the biggest risk to the global systemic -- pose the biggest systemic risk. after the italian banks, the portuguese banks are next. europe still has him headwinds coming. these are festering problems. glenn brady made a statement for the tories. he said there will be no second contest. we are waiting for some more headlines coming through. it's not clear whether teresa may automatically becomes the next prime minister. he says they need formal confirmation.
7:36 am
side, theyropean have a better idea than they had yesterday as to who will be the next prime minister of the u.k. the approach from europe is critical. what we have seen over the last month is maybe cherry picking. they need to take a different approach with the u.k. hermentioned divorce seedings. what are we likely to see? >> i think it will be eight mess at first. -- it will be a mess at first. the eu does not want to make an easy onor make it too the u.k. to encourage other companies to leave. some of thetime, issues the u.k. raises are generally shared. the most and are thinking about the election is the tory candidate who looks like me is left of the tory party.
7:37 am
she was in favor of remain. the challenger to the labor leader is to the right of the labour party. waras in favor of the iraq and in favor of some of the cuts from welfare. the tory candidate has talked about having worked with representatives on corporate boards. politics in the u.k. are in flux. what does it mean to be conservative anymore? alix: all around europe as well. whether there is another referendum, we have referendums coming up and they can dictate how those countries act in the eu like the italian referendum on the senate. those affect decision-making and the european union. >> even though i have been a -- ir bull, i recognize thought politics would come in
7:38 am
as a later factor but it's happening now in the midst of monetary divergence. our politics in the u.s. is a bit of a circus as well. we could see donald trump name a vp candidate this week. many things are in flux but i think european politics is a greater threat to the economy. it is that feedback loop you are talking about. david: where do you see the dollar headed being a dollar bull? i'm pretty bullish on the dollar against the euro. i think will be closer to $1.05. dollar-yen is a different story which i have been struggling with. maybe we have seen the autumn at $100 yen. i think it could be up to $125. now i hope we get back up to $1.10. alix: when you see this selloff,
7:39 am
what do you do with the yen? >> i will just watch things carve out. i don't think -- i think we knew that abe was going to win and the super majority is misleading. is not in favor of constitutional changes to allow greater military power for jim -- for japan. they will be back to old-fashioned liberal politics with monetary stimulus maybe this month and then a weaker yen. those are the three legs of omics. david: where is china headed? >> they are still likely to raise interest rates this year. there is a misunderstanding. i don't think this is the china officials trying to drive the currency down. i think they are allowing market down. to take the remmbyi

she said article 50 will not be triggered this year. she might be pressured to move quicker on that. she will come under pressure from europe to build an exit strategy which we don't have at the moment. try toy, she will broaden the conservative face from -- away from austerity. she will talk today about broader policy and curbing executive pay and putting workers on board, much like the labour party. they are looking to broaden the base and make the economy that can share more. it seems like history is being made almost every day in the u.k. when it comes to politics. many of us don't know teresa may. we know she was mildly for remain. what can you tell him us about

7:47 am
a proof of her own mandate. they think it's time for the government to implement brexit. one thing that will come from this will be maybe a coronation of teresa may that could put more pressure on her to call an early general election. we have fixed terms. currently, there is no elect ion scheduled until 2020. dangerous game. it is a stronger pound story. do we assume the market looks at this and says less uncertainty
7:48 am
around her the next prime minister actually is? is that a little bit of relief? the message will come from the bank of england this week. what do we expect the response to be? economists y of expect a hike in interest rates and some say they will wait until august. the betting is we will see an interest rate cut this week. they might cut more on things like funding for lending and qe and the central bank has warmed there would be economic turmoil from brexit. jon: simon kennedy from london, thank you. teresa may is set to succeed somid cameron as andrea lead

7:53 am
will happen this week or we will see the signs of that momentum coalescing this week. the chance is still very slim. committee members are gathering this week in cleveland. there is a platform and credentials and rules committee. the rules committee is the most important. that's where the anti-trump elegance will try to unbind themselves. states vote across the country in the primaries and the delegates are bound based on how voters vote. there are number of delegates that we know who are bound to donald trump don't want to vote for him on the convention floor next week. they will try to insert rules or change language that might allow them to vote their conscience next week. there are 112 members on the rules committee and the only really need 28 people to change a rule. in front of get it the full delegation next week.

supported prime minister. i am therefore withdrawing from the leadership election. and i wish teresa may the greatest success. i assure her of my full support. we are joined from london by the bloomberg chief executive editor. i can't even imagine the newsroom in london. what does this mean if it actually happens? will she be the next prime minister? >> it seems like a pretty fair assumption. they have ruled out any other candidates in the race. she had the overwhelming support of the parliamentary party so it's a safe bet. she is in a car coming back to london right now from birmingham where she made a speech on the economy. when she gets here, that will start this british process of appointing a new prime minister. the theater of the prime

minister. it seems to accelerate things a bit. jon: it's not the first time we have seen this kind of thing. we saw it happen with gordon brown. we saw it happen before that. that this be a sense was not enough, the fact that they did not go to the membership to confirm teresa may if they decide not to do that? will there be a sense that there needs to be another election? >> that will be a question over the next days and weeks ahead. she has ruled it out. she could argue that there is too much to be done right now and election will take too much time. no one is really talking about that is a realistic proposition. we need to look at the u.k. opposition. that we of pressure
8:05 am
might have expected to come for a new election is not going to come from the opposition. jon: a very fluid situation. imagine covering this story in london. alix: it must be crazy. london..ies out of george osborne is making a trip to wall street. scarlet: george osborne is beginning a global road trip for two weeks. he has arrived in new york state to pitch to u.s. investors. and a previous couple of days coming a spoken with executives from j.p. morgan and goldman sachs to play up london as the financial capital. his message is that britain is open to business. he had an op-ed in the wall street journal. he talks about infrastructure and digital networks and he said that he will be telling wall street that we want more finance in london, not less. he referenced how the u.k. is a
8:06 am
global hub in finance. emphasizect him to how the u.k. has done a lot to reduce spending and cut taxes. in the wall street journal, he says he aims to cut the u.k. corporate tax rate to 15% or lower from the 17% it is set to reach. to years ago, when he began be chancellor of the exchequer, it was 28%. he mentioned he has spoken with paul ryan, the speaker of the house a couple of times to discuss a stronger trade relationship. he will meet with treasury secretary jack lew in london later this week. u.s. investment in the u.k. is 10 times what it invests in china and british investment in the u.s. is about 50 times with china invests in the u.s.. there is a lot of money at stake. don't leave us is the end

8:08 am
had ambitions to be the prime minister. is their significance that it is going to be teresa may? >> it's too early to tell because this is happen very rapidly. what we will be focused on in we markets is how quickly can reinvigorate interest in business investment and get the u.k. economy on track. is inflationisk and potentially contagion. her relationship with the eu is what we will focus on. 100 is entering a bull market today. opportunities if we wind up seeing stability in the u.k.? >> i think it's too early to play in. we have not answered real questions yet. multinationals would benefit if the u.k. can negotiate a strong
8:09 am
trade agreement with the eu. it's a little early to tell so we have two years to figure that out once article 50 is invoked. that would be a quick play and you're already seeing that in the ftse this morning. what point will businesses decide to go back in and invest? do they know what the rules are? i think you will need to see some certainty in terms of how labor can migrate between the u.k. and the eu and whether london will remain the financial capital of europe. trade agreements, taxation, import and export our questions yet to be answered but it's too early to make a long-term bet on those. , as we haveresting seen the pound fall, some of the u.k. property funds have gained so we have seen some nascent interest in investments in u.k. property. weekend --st the

some historic news in the u.k. after that vote to leave the european union. we have a better idea who the next prime minister will be. teresa may is the only candidate. market thatequity is points away from an all-time high. are trading positive in futures market, up about eight points in a rally that extends to the rest of the world. that youic is the fact can have equity markets and all time highs and bond yields near all-time lows. the big story in japan is not the yen, a much weaker japanese yen after that convincing victor y from the prime minister. in dealing with the
8:14 am
president of the euro group in the debt finance minister, the group of finance ministers are meeting to discuss the state of spain and portugal and if they've succeeded -- if they've acceded there legit requirements. thatys it's important spain and portugal take budget action. he points out that italian banks as well -- sorry -- he says the decision on portugal and spain is correct and finance ministers are meeting over the next two days. more about the big story in the equity market which is stocks to record highs and bonds never record lows in terms of yield.
8:15 am
this kind of relationship is quite historical. charted at a long-term and we have seen lower yields and higher stock markets in the past but nothing to this extent. we are getting close to a high on the s&p 500. it seems that futures will open higher. it seems we are well-positioned. you start to think about why yields are low and why bonds are high. we got more news from overseas that it looks like it will be in a low interest environment and that's a good thing for stock market participants. they wanted a backstop to equities for a long time. you look at the bank of japan but the equity markets are near one-year lows. the u.s. equity market without is doing well comparatively
8:16 am
to european and japanese equities. >> the bulls will tell you that's a function of what you're using qe for and what the economic backdrop is. we are starting to turn to positive earnings in the u.s. expectations are slightly down but we always beat so we can have positive earnings. we get alcoa kicking off today. we have had pretty solid economic data that a surprising over the last couple of weeks. we are in a tightening regime perhaps where the fed is pricing it into the market. hopefully it will be for the right reasons. if we are bringing abridges rates, it will be on the backdrop of a good economy. it and japan and europe, we know it's happening. japan is still struggling to kickstart their economies of it
8:17 am
on have a stronger base situation the u.s. has. oliver says this is good news. these highsr seen in equities and lows and bond yields. this is -- is this central bank interest -- is this central bank intervention around the world? does it reflect a more troubling underlying economic situation? is it good news? >> it's mixed. the dynamics of the global yield regime shift money into stronger economies. the part of equity markets that's interesting as we have dividend yields and excess of the 10 year u.s. government bond yield. with investment-grade credit, high-quality companies above 3.5%, you can get dividends that look like that for investment grade companies in the stock market.
8:18 am
don't underestimate the power of a basis point in a low yield environment. it speaks more to yield than it does to the underlying fundamentals. is this dichotomy of stocks and bonds really about the yield curve? we have seen a flatten so much. there is a selling in the short and. it's the idea of the fed hike but then the curve isre-rating for a longer low rate fed? the deeper looks at things that demonstrate this phenomenon is he is if you look at the higher bond universe, it has gone from 80% of investment-grade bonds being the top and now it's 40% of that. there is less investment-grade high-quality out there for people to buy in addition to the
8:19 am
central bank buying the sovereign debt. that is forcing the yields down. where we see opportunity is if david: david: ddd which are the cheapest look relatively attractive. is preciouspoint and there are many left to go. carry is going to be king in this environment. you can seat record high markets and record low bond yields and you asked which asset class got it right. is marketme this forces playing out and will continue to do so. construction, if the bond market and equity market are moving in tandem, how do i get a diversified play? this is a question among our individual and institutional investors.
8:20 am
you have seen a huge inflow with record inflows last week into commodities especially gold. there is no cost of carry anymore. owning things like gold as a diversified or is attractive. longer term for institutions, they love a real assets. own something that is inflation protected like property with darling rates at all-time lows in household balance sheets especially in the u.s. is at their healthiest in decades. we like real assets and old is something you can own is a diversified. r. don't get out of the stock market but look at higher-quality companies. we like emerging markets as a relative carry trade. the dollar is a strong as it will get probably in the near term. alix: we have seen the rush into islities even though the p/e trading high, it's hard to give up assets when you have the bond yields so low and bond investors
8:21 am
are turning to equity investors. in a perverse way, the immediate reaction post brexit was kind of positive for stocks. the fed say the rate hikes will get readjusted and you saw the gap between the thed and the s&p 500 versus 10 year yield. if you look at all the reasons why the market has been rallying, you will see those scenarios continue or strengthen. you have this giant gap between the s&p 500. of companies are yielding more than the 10 year. it's incredible. six months ago, if you tried to time your move based on p/e in
8:22 am
the sectors that are most worrisome, it would not have worked. alix: you can't actually time your calls anymore. the fundamentals have broken down and it's all about relative value. if you look at corporate balance sheets, borrowing costs are incredibly low in that means asset reflation. post crisis that across the board in every asset class. it will probably benefit things with yields. that's stocks and bonds and some of these diversify her assets that don't have a carry cost. alix: great to have your perspective. much more coming up on "bloomberg ," including an update on the news out of great britain. this is bloomberg.

global equity rally with the u.s. in focus. we are looking for a new all-time high. will that happen today? let's get some headlines. here's taylor riggs. >> the way has been cleared for theresa may to become britain's next prime minister. her opponent has dropped out of the race, saying support from conservatives was not enough to lead a government. she said, brexit means brexit and we are going to make a success of it. it may be a sign that bernie sanders is about to endorse hillary clinton. he will campaign with her tomorrow in new hampshire. last week he made the most pro-clinton comments today saying, we need to do everything we can to defeat donald trump. the longshot attempt to stop trump from becoming the nominee

8:33 am
when such anrry important number comes in so low. the june number basically canceled out the number in may. this is still a healthy labor market. i would say there's a big side of relief among my fellow economist on wall street with that number. jonathan: it was equities rallying. bond yields pretty much pinned to the floor. funds futures. if you look at the implied probability of a rate hike that market just did not reprice. why did that market not reprice? >> the bond market is marching to a different drummer and other markets in the u.s.. the bond market is being pulled by incredibly low and negative interest rates outside the u.s. the bondpeople in market has pretty much decided the fed is never going to hike
8:34 am
again and it's going to take a lot of convinced them to get people to believe that -- convincing to get people to believe that. you have this downward pressure on u.s. yields that is ok u.s.ming what are economic fundamentals which we can see in a better stock market and a better credit market. and the u.s.et market is very much in the throes of the global condition right now. jonathan: gdp is below trend. we are calling it the drift economy. it keeps on drifting along. does that continue? if that what the yield curve is kind of suggesting -- isn't that what the yield curve is kind of suggesting? >> what the bond market has wrong is not the growth picture, which is drifting along sideways. -- what the bond
8:35 am
market is missing is we have actually reached full employment. we are starting to see wages accelerate and core inflation pickup. we know from history these are very lacking inertial indicators. once inflation starts to pick up a bit it persists. part of the bond market that is disconnected with economic reality. u.s. is exiting very slowly the low-inflation trap that many big developed market economies are in. very weak growth going forward, no big story there. we are going to get a little bit of inflation in the united states. jonathan: i want to talk about the news of this morning out of the united kingdom. you learned that theresa may is pretty much debt set to be the next prime minister in the united kingdom. what do you tell clients that actually means for the months and years ahead? >> we think this is a market friendly outcome.

she's going to try to negotiate that doesn't deal throw away the strong trade relations between the rest of europe and the u.k. we need a negotiated deal that recognizes that you don't leave entirely. you still are part of the european economic region. that's why the markets reacted positively to her. harris, thankn you very much for joining this program. david: we are turning to what brexit does for banks. earnings season begins this week. ed perks.ow is it welcome to the program. that.talk about we are about to see these earnings out of banks. what is brexit going to do to earnings? >> you clearly have a couple
8:37 am
different forces at work. with all the talk on yields declining record low levels that does pressure bank earnings in some form. really hurting this anticipated expansion of net interest margins. there's another side to the story. there are some concerns about credit quality. that is an aspect where banks could show some improvement or alleviation of the concern that might be out there with some investors. david: what about on the trading front? thebanks really took a hit, ones who were into trading. will we see that again? >> i think a little less so. volumes were down substantially. with the volatility we have seen more recently we think volumes have stayed more elevated. alix: maybe there is a different issue on debt for banks.
8:38 am
we have seen equities in europe fall off a cliff whereas their debt has held up. how are you positioned in terms of debt? >> we look across the capital structure for our strategy. we have been a bit more exposed to their hybrid debt securities for yield. these are fixed floating structures. they moved to floating. move to floating. highestit is clearly be correlated stocks to treasuries have outperformed and those that are lowest correlated have underperformed. we think there is value for a longer-term investor. i would see us swinging toward more equity contact -- content as we move forward. david: what about mortgage income?
8:39 am
wells fargo is big in the mortgage space. do you expect to see an uptick? low interest rates have clearly been around for a while so there has been tremendous refinancing activity. ultimately we think the consumer is pretty healthy and that supports the mortgage market in general. alix: european banks have gotten completely hammered, in particular in italian banks. what kind of banks do you see the value? if there are european banks that have more global franchises, those will stand out as pretty interesting opportunities. taking a longer-term perspective. david: for example? >> c holdings is one. we think there is a dividend yield that is attractive. do you feel like banks can
8:40 am
earn an adjusted return close to what they did in the last cycle? those that have expectations that returns will normalize and go back to prior cycle levels i think really miss the fundamental change that has happened with financials. our expectation is that returns will be at a lower level than they have been historically for banks. that may still offer a pretty attractive opportunity. yield can be a pretty important component of total return from investing and financials. jonathan: hsbc yield stands at about 7%. you're not worried about that? >> it is certainly something you all to look at with dividend stocks. similar to other industries whether it is pharmaceuticals or energy companies we tended to see higher dividend yields from
8:41 am
the non-us major players. is banks area cheap for a reason. we are finally seeing bank stocks rewrite to a lower for rate to a rea lower for longer. that's why we have been more tilted toward those. andhey become cheap enough that is fully reflected in the valuation we still expect economic growth even though a modest level of economic activity we do think at some point reaching this kind of natural rate of unemployment we will see rates tick higher. alix: what other kind of company do you really like in europe? i think some of the major
8:42 am
players on the industrial side are interesting. we do a little basf. you are playing a team of -- game of -- we think that company in particular compares favorably to its peers. the autos have really been impacted. counterparts are underperformers. that's the nature of this environment of moderate global economic activity that those are still areas to find value. david: ed perks is staying with us. he will be talking how he is putting his money to work in energy. this is bloomberg. ♪

8:47 am
your portfolio is e&p company bonds. make the case for energy distressed debt. >> it has clearly gone through a pretty significant cycle. high-yield e&p companies were a tremendous -- had tremendous access to capital and as a result became a much more significant part of the universe. how we have dealt with this sector is really trying to differentiate. where are the companies with the best assets and ultimately focusing on those. don't thinkh we will actually restructure or file for bankruptcy. some have already and will. the outcome for our investors is really capturing some of that value. being able to take advantage at bonds has been an important part of our strategy. alix: yuan chesapeake debt. -- you own chesapeake debt.
8:48 am
that is the white line. nowcan see the yields are 30, 12%. it had a huge spike. make the case for wanting to invest in something so volatile. >> even earlier this year when the bond prices declined tremendously and it matched pretty closely the lows in commodity prices, some of those lows in the bond prices occurred with the lows in oil prices. chesapeake has not been focused on that -- 75 plus percent of the value exceeds the total debt. how do you deal with that kind of environment, it is really of theg on regardless outcome in the near the value is really there for creditors. alix: but why do you want to own a bond on a company that might
8:49 am
go through restructuring and then you might get converted to equity? you have to go through all that uncertainty and that could take years. why take on that risk? >> there are situations that take a longer time to play out. as we look at the more distressed assets that is a big part of our consideration is how long will it take to realize that value? if it is priced cheaply enough -- chesapeake is an interesting example of a company pulling a lot of different levers to not go down that road. we have seen a meaningful amount of that. the company still has a meaningful equity market capitalization. they have gotten a nice agreement with banks. it extends their liquidity line through the middle of 2017. we also see noncore asset sales. we ultimately think chesapeake will be able to increasingly turn their attention on maximizing the value of their
8:50 am
assets. alix: your biggest position in the portfolio is shell. companies are pretty vulnerable. they are too big to grow. >> we think there's an interesting opportunity for rer ating. when oil prices were substantially lower that was something we really had to consider but as we have seen the recovery we continue to think the amount of capital available for upstream investment in the industry broadly is somewhat limited with these oil prices and that continues to move us in a situation where we think global supply and demand will be more balanced and that will be supportive of prices. alix: i love the counterintuitive. such a pleasure. thank you for being here with us, ed perks. coming up, i take on my afternoon cohost scarlet fu in battle of the charts next. stay with us.

about theresa may. byy will ratify the decision the 1922 committee. and then we should hear from the 1922 committee that theresa may is the party leader. when she will become prime , the process will last roughly 48 hours. david cameron has to get out of downing street and the queen has to get involved as well. this is a certainty. there is no more uncertainty. the election was going to be done by september 9. that takes away nine weeks of uncertainty. that can only be good for the market. jonathan: thank you, mark barton. what a morning. alix: and what the week last week. unprecedented time for equities and bonds. take a look at this chart that matt miller just brought up. the blue line is the s&p and the white line is the 10 year yields.
9:08 am
yields near a record low and stocks near a record high. that divergence has not happened in history. lebas. us now is guy how long does this divergence go to? what is the bottom for 10 year yield? combinationl that seems to be sending is that markets are expecting greater central bank intervention over the course of the next six months. unlike the last cycle when you tended to see both god -- bonds and equities, that is not going bute coming in the u.s. from overseas. the bank of england's meeting thursday of this week where a rate cut is widely expected. with the election it seems likely we will see monetary stimulus coming out of the bank of japan as well. alix: goldman sachs sees the tenure at 2%.
9:09 am
-- the 10 year at 2%. nominal u.s. growth is going to get better. what do you think about that call? >> i think there's a lot of signals that are reasonably positive about the u.s. economy. we are in a pretty consistent late stage expansion. what we are seeing the buying come from has nothing to do with the u.s. and that is pretty evident in yields around the world. if you look over the last 30 trading sessions, the ten-year treasury future in the u.s. has rallied by three percentage points. two of those occurred when markets in the u.s. were closed. it is all overseas. jonathan: you talked about this affecting u.s. equities. it's not the federal reserve doing qe here. it's the bank of japan, it's the ecb. they're markets have not performed that well over the last 12 months. what are your thoughts? >> in full disclosure i'm not
9:10 am
inequity expert. equity expert. that history is not particularly inspiring. part of that could be low sample size. only a handful of countries have a lot of track record to track that data of negative interest rates. the signal is that qe is a more powerful mechanism for re-including risk asset markets including corporate bonds and stocks. i think that lesson has been learned pretty well. there are some currency regions -- reasons why the next round of expansion is likely to be qe the negative interest rates. alix: i have a great chart. it is now at a 1956 low. that means you are looking at a yield of about 4.53%.
9:11 am
that is how much it costs for companies with that kind of rating to borrow. that's an unbelievable statistic. to what extent do we have to be concerned about this compression? worthys credit wher borrowers will be able to participate because it is so cheap. that has led to troubles. tothere is a great story tell with the energy industry and how prominent they were in early 2014n 2011 and before energy prices declined. a perfect microcosm of how low borrowing costs can distort risk-taking within the corporate credit markets. don't thinkture we investors are particularly well paid for taking on corporate credit risks. many of our investors are not going for a short-term tactical play. there are pretty good odds of seeing negative returns in the high-yield market. you look at all the
9:12 am
money flowing into credit, what does this do to illuminate the cycle bust when it actually happens? >> the obvious answer is probably although we have never seen a down economic cycle or really down credit like with the degree of central bank intervention we have right now, it probably makes them i miss you a lot nurture. complicating matters has been balance sheet contraction from .ounterparties we don't have that same cushion today. alix: i'm looking at 10 year yield now. what's it going to be like at the end of the year? >> we think yields are going to be moving up higher. we have seen a big drop since the brexit vote. other measures of economic expectations have not deteriorated nearly as much as
9:13 am
yields have fallen. if you take installation break inflationmeasure of expectations they are down a little bit and the entire decline has been real yields. period oferience this decline only lasts a matter of weeks, not months and certainly not years. thank you, guy lebas. all eyes will be on the banks. a preview of what to expect is coming up. and later, david malpass. he will be joining us here on bloomberg go. this is bloomberg. ♪

we got three consecutive closes and 50 day moving average. we have not seen that since february 25. prior to the breakout we spent three months below the average. the 20 day crossing below the 50 day moving average which indicates we could see more pressure here in the near term. jonathan: on the fundamentals it feels like take the price action than choose the narrative. last week u.s. crude production dropped more than anticipated. at the same time the rig count was up. people say that explains the bounce we might get. talk about the fundamentals. what is the dominant force for the crude market right now? >> has the price action take the narrative -- it's an endless tug-of-war between the bulls and the bears. rig counts have been of five out of the last six weeks which

9:22 am
david: welcome back to bloomberg go. i'm david westin. a big week ahead for banks as we move into earnings season. blackrock and jpmorgan are reporting on thursday. joining us now is laura keller. you have a story out today and the headline says it all. bye bye bonus. what should we expect out of the banks? >> essentially that says it all.
9:23 am
the bonuses for this year are probably going to be pretty low just based on the net income estimates from different banks. a lot of analysts polled them back after brexit and said, we are not going to have a lot of interest rate rises like we were hoping this year so we are going to have to pull back these estimates. that is going to hurt your bonus down the line. david: i heard from some of the banks that in the trading days after brexit there was actually a huge uptick. particularly in fx exchange. they probably got some. revenue off of that. >> yes. jpmorgan has come out and said this is a one of the best times we have had for fx trading. the question is whether that week was enough to overwhelm the rest of the quarter which wasn't all that great. it was better but there is a lot of choppy trading going into brexit as well. david: where specifically does brexit hurt a bank?
9:24 am
>> it's really an indirect effect. you will see some trading upticks for that week. will be from the interest rate. a lot of these banks are positioned in such a way to not having interest rate rises is going to hurt them. david: interest margins will be squeezed but they will not be worse than they were. they have been pretty low. should they really get hurt? >> for this quarter everyone is saying, it's going to be ok. it's not going to be great. it is not going to overcome our really bad quarter last year. brexit ishing for going forward into the third quarter and fourth quarter you are not going to have these rises. david: what about investment banking? probably when we talk to the banks in june they said, we are seeing an uptick for certain
9:25 am
areas. they didn't go far as to say that for m&a transactions. with brexit moves analysts believe that uptick is gone. david: who is likely to get hurt worse? >> you mentioned jpmorgan. goldman sachs, a lot of their trading. they may benefit as well. you may see something from citigroup. what about wells fargo? >> they are a big mortgage lender. we will probably see a bit of a bright spot for them. we don't know how long that is going to last. at least for the short term it will be good for them. david: there's a year-over-year comparison with goldman where they may come out looking pretty good. >> goldman was the only one who was rising up.
9:26 am
that's just because last quarter was so bad. hopefully we don't see that this quarter there will be a rise. david: thanks for being with us, laura keller. bell justthe opening minutes away. that's next on bloomberg go. here's the scorecard. futures are firmer. europe continues to rally. lowsrcent off february with the potential to close in a bull market. market, it's a weaker japanese yen. from new york city, the open next. this is bloomberg. ♪

9:30 am
15 seconds away from the cash open. in europe, the ftse up 60 points. 20% above the federal where he lows -- the february nose. and weaker with japanese yen up by two full percentage points after a convincing election. yields, fourket basis points on a 10 year. .hat is the situation the big question on everyone's lips as we kick off this week, can we make a new all-time high on the s&p 500. >> the answer has to be yes. if we make any headway at all to the upside, which futures are indicating we are going to hit an all-time high. i,we stay there, the closing i think is 21.382.
9:31 am
we will close at an all-time high today as long as we are in the green. the dow up 46 points, the nasdaq up 21 points. the s&p, since the last time we had in essen -- had a record 286 days and it has not been that long in a bull 1961 so it was a long stretch for the s&p not to hit a new high. very interesting look and maybe that tells you something about the strength of this whole market or where we are now. look at the chart that hillary put together. it shows the schiller barclays -- no, we don't have it. that is ok. we can show it later because this schiller barkley case index says u.s. stocks may be valued
9:32 am
fully. look at the metal stocks. theseesources, alcoa, stocks doing well today. not just because alcoa is coming up with earnings. they are expected to fall. but because metals and mining stocks around the world have been driven by the gains in the underlying commodities. you see the same thing in the european markets where the basic resources stocks are the biggest gainers. also take a look at southern. southern purchasing, a 50% stake in kindred morgan's pipeline unit, called southern natural pipeline. another power company investigating a shipment of power resources has not help the stock at all. the potential to close at a record close and right now an
9:33 am
all-time high for the s&p 500. one fact playing into the houses early markets which kickoff today when alcoa reports second-quarter earnings out and about. expectglobal says to disappointment. it is the headline everyone will run away with. the performance yield today is up around 4%. which way do you look at this market? if you look at to your performance it hasn't been that terrific but if you look at ftse, that is because the pound is weaker. i am worried about the nominal growth in the world. there is not enough dollars to go around to reach all this corporate earnings estimate. global gdp is $74 trillion now, the same as it was or lower than it was in 2012. so how do you get lots more corporate earnings, which people
9:34 am
are expecting when you don't have more dollars? china's currency is going down which reduces the amount of dollar gdp in the world and the pound has gone down so you have got some some tractors from earning. >> does that mean those equities were so overvalue right now? valued,nk we are fully the bond yields are very low which makes equities more attractive but if you've got a world where you don't have enough organic growth, then how much do you really want to pay for equities in that environment? fully could argue you are valued in bonds because of the rally, so what do you do? >> you can be in cash. look over the past two years, equities haven't done very much. bonds had a good run. so do you really want to play that for another two years.
9:35 am
there is a limit to how slow you can have the world growing. the imf keeps lowering their numbers. japan is getting really hurt by the china competition. there is plentiful capacity going on around the world so where do you get the earnings growth? david: do you think about giving up some liquidity? we had met with violent -- we had make mcclellan. >> there is a little panic in brexit or after the break that vote with a u.k., some of the companies had to arrive and stop or block to put up their gates in order to keep people from withdrawing. we had that in a high-yield market a year ago, summer of 2015, people were very worried about high-yield and the liquidity reappeared. our big risk that isn't so much the liquidity or
9:36 am
the financial system or the debt. debt can get restructured in the current environment because yields are so low. there are lots of -- there is lots of money looking for yield. is to extend its suspension of the u.k. property fund by two days. they want to rebuild the liquidity position. jere ferguson, head of the u.k., saying that a limited number of properties are being marketed. the highest prices achievable for our investors. from a funds perspective that is going to be difficult. .> i am not sure of that with the pound weaker, what is the pound price of real estate in london? going to be some weakness due to people's concern that jobs are moving away from u.k. into the competent -- into the u.k. has aut
9:37 am
lot of advantages that can set up free trade with the u.s. and canada and they are a giant customer for europe. i think property will end up being ok in london. here is the problem. it is going to have these record levels, so how much per square foot do you want to pay? >> in terms of what you are talking about with meg, real estate is something to think about. david: if equities are fully that,, but coming back to if corporate earnings are the crux of this, what are we lacking right now to get them going? the fed policy doesn't make sense for the central banks around the world. the bank of japan, and the european central bank to be buying bonds when yields are at
9:38 am
an all-time low and even negative. under what economic theory could you claim that that stimulated? even the fed, remember as a gross investor it is buying huge amounts of bonds because bonds mature and they reinvest at full maturity. so the fed its self is a big bond buyer at these lower yields and it doesn't make any sense. what that is doing is causing this misallocation of capital around the world where you don't put enough into smaller businesses and into business investment. >> you say businesses should raise rates because then you would have the kind of capital investments that are missing. >> we would have had a better expansion now if they had been raising before. what i would like to see them doing now is not are owing so much from banks. -- not borrowing so much from banks. an a.s. fed borrows to
9:39 am
half trillion dollars from banks every night. we've got this in the bond market where people keep issuing bonds that don't have a good idea of what to do with the cash. do you really want an economy run by bond issuers? no. we know it is supposed to be run by smaller businesses. taxuld like to see policies. we have a horrible tax policy. but it goes on year after year. get that improved. japan really hasn't had very many good ideas about liberalizing their retail sector. they just have too many people working in retail. these structural reforms are important for everybody. jon: something i never thought i'd hear. >> in retail. they have to up so they have population going down. david: thanks for being here.

enough right now. you guys are going to talk to bert, a wall street legend. this is the schiller barclays case index. for european stocks here, it looks at pe and valuations and adjust them for cyclical swings. they made the u.s. stocks as fully valued here. i think bert is going to say o.at to you can see this divergence happening in 2014. hillary's wasn't ready to give it to me at that point, she didn't want to let go of her baby here. but look at some of the stocks moving today. earnings season kicks off. viacom is one, wells fargo downgrading viacom to an underperform. a lot of the earnings have fallen too far, too fast.
9:45 am
about one and two thirds percent. a number of upgrades and downgrades to energy names, upgrading devon and the store oh putting them on its most wanted list. downgrading marathon and phillips. as the market rises, especially these energy stocks, those are big gainers as well. we are going to see a lot of green in today's market. jon: good to have you back. alex: so much love right here. jon: over at nasdaq, abigail? >> we do have trading higher on its fourth day of gains in a row. certainly participating this morning, pharmaceutical shares are soaring at the news that they have agreed to by the small-cap company for $736 million in cash.

9:47 am
coming to market. there was some debate at how quickly the fund would move. and how quickly they would get properties out in the market. we think there are plenty more out there. what it shows is they are not hanging around. jon: aberdeen also extends its suspension of the u.k.. what you make of that? what aberdeen was saying, most of the investors have submitted with redemption requests and have canceled those. what i think the extra delay is about is just reassuring the sca that those who have submitted reaction requests have had long enough to really think about that because if they don't withdraw them, they are going to have to accept a 70% discount. jon: updating us on the situation in some of those property funds. i can very much.
9:48 am
alex: from princeton university is bert malki all -- bert malkiel. professor, i want to start with a chart that we had up. cape ratio for u.s. and european stock. yes, you can make the case that stocks are fully valued but they have been that way for a year and a half. yet the keep -- they keep grinding higher. >> stocks are fully valued. you inio does not help telling what the market is going to do over the next year. -- there is a zero correlation between the cape and what happens over the next year. where the correlation is stronger is over five or 10 years. because there is some correlation between the 10 year future returns and what the kick
9:49 am
is telling you is the future ten-year returns are not going to be like 10%, which is what we have seen historically. it is more likely to be four or 5% for the u.s. equity market. but that doesn't mean that equities should be avoided because you've got to put your aney somewhere and we've got 10 year treasury at 1.4%. ,elative to 10 year treasury stocks still represent some value. the other thing i think the charts tell you is that europe is cheap relative to the united states. you can see it in the two capes. you can see it by taking a couple of comparable companies .uch as general electric general electric
9:50 am
earning ratio is around 40. even though i don't think brexit is a good thing for europe, european equities are cheap relative to the united states and people ought to be internationally diverse of tying. professor if you would because what we showed was a chart showing european versus u.s. stocks. we did not have emerging markets up there. if we put that up there we see an even greater divergence. what accounts for that difference? what is leading to those differences? >> what is leading to the differences is that the united states is considered, quite properly, the safest market in the world. emerging markets are considered, quite properly, the most risky park it's -- risky markets in
9:51 am
the world. there is no question about the fact that the relative risks are consistent with the different kicks. risk and return have been forted for a century and those who can take the risk, and if you are broadly diversified, that tends to mitigate some of the risk. you ought to have european stocks. you ought to have japanese stocks, which are also cheap. you also have to have emerging-market stocks which have a cape lower than it has ever been. alex: let's turn to the other big story in the market and that is the s&p near a record and the record yield lows that we are seeing as well. i feel like this is the chart of the day and it is a maxed out chart. that blue line versus a 10 year yield. when you look at something like
9:52 am
this, what do you do as an investor. what do you do particularly if you are a retired person looking for income? my view is that it is one of the reasons why equities are so high. suppose you need income. you don't want to put your money in a 1.4% treasury. if the federal reserve gets to its 2% target, that means a negative rate of interest. if rates rise eventually as i am sure they will it mean capital losses. you don't want to be in bonds. i don't think you want to be in high-grade corporate bonds either. yield year bonds of at&t less than 3%. so what what i do? i would buy dividend paying, and stocks. at&t common stock yields four and a half percent.
9:53 am
the dividend for at&t has risen every year in at&t's new history. i can't believe that investors won't be better off with at&t stock than they will with at&t bonds. i know stocks are riskier than bonds but in today's environment , with these ridiculously low interest rates, i think you ought to be an at&t stockholder rather than a bondholder. one of the things that strikes me is when you are told something has never happened before in history, you are inclined to say, why is that? we have seen record high equities and record low yields on bonds. what should that be telling us about where we are. i think what it is telling you is that there is an enormous amount of overcapacity in the
9:54 am
world, that the world is struggling through very modest and inadequate growth, that the united states, which used to be able to count on 3-4% nominal when it isar, even expanding, it is expanding at a 2% rate. what this is telling you is that this is a very tough global economy. alex: you made the case for at&t because the dividend yield is higher than its debt but when you look at p/e ratios, how long are you willing to pay up for i thinknd of stocks? >> as long as interest rates remain is that my own view they are likely to remain lower , as long as interest rates are where they are.
9:55 am
i don't think that you will take that amount of inordinate risk in investing in either at&t or arise in. -- or verizon. paying, even those that have got some modest amount of growth, that are going to serve investors much better over the next years, certainly than bonds, which i just wouldn't touch. alex: thank you very much, .rofessor burt malkiel thank you so much for joining us. don't even touch stocks with a 10 foot pole. on the s&p-time high market, potentially an all-time high record lows on the s&p 500 but in the united kingdom some uncertainty has been removed.
