2:36 am
how were the headwinds affecting you? laurence: that is the story that will continue for the whole year and what you are already seeing is the impact in the first half. we see the impact on the second half will be larger than the first half. also because we get into the edging is fading away. that is factoring into the guidance we are giving. line, we only own a little more than half of the company. a significant operation for heineken but the less net impact is not that high. and the mexican peso as well and the u.k. pound which is playing a role. what you do see is definitely an impact from the emergency -- the emerging currencies. the good news of the end of the first half is paradoxically, the

assets in the last few years but is now getting focused on being leaner. believe we have ample capability to get investment-grade ratings. we invest strategically and tactically. that is your bloomberg business flash. juliet, fascinating stories out there. i want to give you a check in on what is happening with the futures market. we are ramping up into the open. stress test that breezed a sigh of relief into the market. a number of improved, the likes of deutsche bank. 1.2% uptick on the euro stocks. ftse 100 up. barclays also seemingly able to manage -- seemingly able to improve somewhat.
2:46 am
dax, up 1.1%. look out for deutsche bank as they do manage to improve their ratio on the back of those stress test results. better than it was last year. so says citigroup. interesting groups as we build up to a crescendo at the open. the manufacturing data out of china may be helping. manus: it could have been worse. up banks are indicating 2%-3%. we will discuss that they are not created equal. let us turn our attention to policy, federal reserve in particular in focus. robert kaplan has spoken. the central bank is staying away from policy divergence. >> to be a central banker in the u.s. today you have to think globally. it is not optional.
2:47 am
what happens today for example in china which is why i am here visiting, can it transmit through the underlying economy is also very quickly through the financial markets as we saw in january and february when turmoil here transmitted to global tightening conditions. we have to be aware of policy divergence and also what is going on around the world. in a more global world, it can moret the united states quickly. that has to be a key part of our job even though our primary responsibility is to be central-bank are to the u.s. -- central banker to the u.s. we are minutes away from the start of your trading day. we are looking at the potential for corporate movers. heineken, we will have their numbers. the banks will be in focus. euro stoxx 50 up over 1%. frankfurt is indicated up over 1%. stocks to watch -- all eyes on

2:50 am
manus: breaking news coming in from the head of those swiss petrol bank. -- swiss central bank. the currency is still overvalued. , whenwiss at the moment awake .319.
2:51 am
point 319. currency policy approach is the right one. the smb is always weighing the cost of benefits of intervention. the balance sheet is big enough. it still has room to intervene. this is thomas jordan, chair of the smb in a panel discussion stating again that more intervention. something the swiss do on a regular basis. littleket perhaps with a less aggression than some other central bankers. caroline: exactly right. monetary policy has been feeding into the overall banking story. germany's two largest banks, deutsche bank and -- we saw the ratio fall on fridays stress test results. while both did better than the last test in 2014, analysts
2:52 am
still voice their concerns regarding the resilience. let us had out to frankfurt. there joined by the head of bank research. let us start with germany and the deutsche bank. there is some improvement. citigroup noticing that at the moment. it is still at the lower end of the spectrum when it comes to the stress tests. >> i don't think that was really a big surprise. we all knew deutsche bank is light on capital. there was a bit of a relief that we now have seen that they passed the stress tests so there is no immediate cause for action. that was a bit of a relief but still not a very impressive results. i would agree with that. caroline: 7.8%. better but still not the top performer certainly with the german banks. the worst performer, the one company that clearly failed the
2:53 am
test. where do you see this company going? where will the capital raising help? that will be a bit of a stretch. the first ring they need to do mpl's and thethe announced they would do that. they need private capital for the mezzanine parts. maybe once that is done they can present a new convincing strategy and september. the would really resolve biggest basket case among the european banks and that would also probably help the sector. basket caseiggest in european banks. some people are suggesting that we are in for a new wave of rating. do you expect that to be the case? i am looking at coco's -- they
2:54 am
have rallied nearly 50% from their low point. do you expect more cocoa issuance? in terms of capital raising's, i do not think there are any immediate needs coming from the stress test. the results were pretty ok. saw not very good results from some of the banks but overall there is no real action needed. what wascoas, i think pretty important to realize is that in the stress test none of the cocoas would have been wiped out or converted into equity. layoffs another big support for the cocoa market. maybe we will see more issuance there and the banks will still need some to comply with the rules. tous: the whole objection this set of stress tests -- if we take the previous ones, they
2:55 am
were so easy for everyone to get through. one is dealing with an interest rate that does not exist. we are with a negative interest rate. that is a bit of a problem. what they did look at was a severe economic downturn, more toere than was realistic expect. what they should be looking at is what the negative interest rates due to the bank. this is something that the german regulator is very keen on. they will make a stress test for this. also probably put a bigger focus on this because the lower returns and lower revenue generation from the banks is a real problem for them to build capital. caroline: great to get your opinion. head of the european banking research. he will be speaking about the ramifications of interest rates

manus: good morning and welcome. this is "on the move." alongside me is caroline hyde. we are moments of a from the start of your european trading day and caroline, you have the morning brief. caroline: manus, i do. a mixed message. china's factory gauges. give a mixed message. -- wereathe the figures will bring the figures from france, italy, and germany during the show. for his managing its china business with the dominant business in the country.
3:00 am
wipes out in the latest dress test. -- latest stress test. ahead of that, the futures market is signaling a rebound come up .7%. the banks are doing better than expected in the stress tests that came at on friday. we are just six seconds into the open. wei, up and running. we are .1% up on the ftse 100. we are already in the green come up .3%. deutsche bank, called higher. it is still at the bottom end of the run when it comes to the stress situation, but better than last year. the cac 40 pushes up .7%, but keep an eye on socgen. they are one of the worst performers in the stress tests.
3:01 am
nejra is back from holiday. welcome back. nejra: i have got the imap up here. and how nice, i've been met with a sea of green, back from my holidays. we can see oil gaining after a couple bad days. and financial, closely behind, up .7%. in fact, every industry group it looks like is gaining on the stoxx 600. so, a strong start to the week. if we look at how the u.k. 10 year yield is doing, the gilt markets are just opening here. that is up just one basis point. we are at 68 basis points on the u.k. 10 year yield. let's look at the stocks we're watching this morning. i wanted to start with heineken because we got earnings today from the world's third biggest brewer that beat analyst estimates in the first half.
3:02 am
it also reiterated its forecast for your on your profit margin expansion and asia was a big part of the gains. now, i'm not sure about today's price because it was called higher by analysts but let's move on to the banks. ys, gaining here, even though it was one of the most 11 stressed banks. pitcher outperformed it. finally, i had to put banca monte pasche up there because it's capital was wiped out during those stress tests. guy: let's bring in our guest, the head of microstrategy. great to have you with me. ok, stress tests. was the ending really shopping there? -- really shopping there. hocking there?kin >> i think overall, the result
3:03 am
is positive because what you see is that there are some problems in some countries. there are problems in germany's. there are some problems in the u.k. but overall, the system is solid. is that there are some banks that have not restructured, but the contagion effect is not the one we had five years ago. now, the stress test covered 70% of assets over 50 banks across 15 countries. there were some small banks that were not covered, which are weak. but overall, across the large banks you've got only one that is really in trouble and a few that are still limping, but could get fixed. manus: caroline, you have got a bit of breaking news there? caroline: yes, we are looking at euronext. it seems to be hit by problems all of its own. they have trading issues once again.
3:04 am
trading has been halted in all derivatives for the fifth morning. theirseem to have technical issues resolved, but trading has been halted in all derivatives products. ist i wanted to dig into th quantitive easing, and some of the negative repercussions of this. this is what is making the banks' lives so difficult. sure, some of them came out better than expected with the stress tests, but this low negative yield world is making it a very difficult area to invest in at the moment. >> remember, these stress tests are about solvency, when we talk about bank profitability. we still have to address a lot of things. obviously, it is good to have a positive solvency picture. it is good for credit, bank bonds, and for stocks. but in the long run, if interest
3:05 am
rates stay at zero or negative, things are going to have a harder time making money with ordinary business, which is lending. last week, the bank of japan assessingalked about the effectiveness of monetary policy, which means central bankers are starting to realize that negative interest rates are not that great for the transmission channel of credit for the lending channel. why? if thanks lose money lending, they may want to do other things , for example, purchasing sovereign bonds and government bonds. actually, negative interest rates are not that great. over time, they can have a self-defeating affect on lending . the is what we have been saying for a long time. i want to get your opinion here. the bank of monte paschi, obviously ubi up 5%. , upbank of monte paschi
3:06 am
10.25%. what are the nonperforming loans hoping to achieve? >> one of the big issues with nonperforming loans, particularly in some countries, is that the legal system is very slow. it takes seven years to recover credit. it is very hard to get seven-year credited is an investment. but if you look at the underl ine, you have property and real estate. so, there is a time issue, but if you solve that, if the government makes the right reforms to accelerate the recovery of credit, then, there is real value their. so, we are active there in the recovery of nonperforming loans, but we look at each credit on a one by one basis. manus: so, you are going to judge each of those individually in terms of the underlying assets. i am keen to get your view.
3:07 am
around the view that deutsche bank was going to have a tough time. we have rallied 15% since then. are you looking at coco's? you think they will be more issues? give us your take. we have a fund, but we have both in the macro fund over the past few weeks, which is the fund i am running. now, why? with this test, we know some banks will raise more equity. stress testn the will have to raise more equity, and that is positive for the credit -- guy: are those the three geographies you have been looking at? germany, the u.k., and italy? >> the of, these are
3:08 am
countries that still have trouble. on the other hand, spain came out very solid because they have done bank reforms. of the countries that were in, italy, the u.k., and germany have had some issues, and austria. but if they raise equity, the credit of the banks, the debt, is safer because there is a bigger cushion. overall, the market has rallied a lot, but there are still some banks they give you opportunities, like the commercial banks in the periphery. some of the large italian banks. some of the spanish banks, some of which are still very solid. the bank that lost less capital in the stress test, for example. caroline: what i loved in some of your notes, negative repercussions. you are talking there about the negative yields and how much that stopped banks wanting to lend. on the bloomberg, i am showing were negative yields are training at the moment.
3:09 am
yields are spiking higher in the japanese data because we don't see any quantitive easing, but globally, we are tracking lower on the global sovereign bond index. you talk about corporate zombies, about banks being copies as well. arm-- being zombies as well. >> we definitely need some consolidation. remember, the eurozone still has $31 trillion in bank assets. we need more bonds and more capital outputs to create a more resilient financial system. it is like riding a car with only one wheel. driving a car with four wheels is better. it is better if you have a spare tire. the financial system recovered a lot quicker thanks to that spare tire. in europe, we still don't have it. it is a critical thing to achieve for the european union
3:10 am
in the next year. um, in terms of the negative interest rates, i think -- we are starting to see a shift in policy. logic wouldional lo tell you that people would become more confident and spend when prices are pushed higher. agingen we have an population, people realize they have left returns on their savings. therefore, they save more, rather than spending more. there are a lot of self-defeating issues. also, as the prices go up, which reates inequality. i think central banks have realized it is better to normalize interest rates over time. and we need fiscal policy from governments, including germany, including the junker plan, which has been talked about a lot, but we have not seen much of it. caroline: i am loving the
3:11 am
analogies, with punctures and spare tires. we will be talking about how the financial policies are trying to pump them up at the moment. alberto gallo, sticking with us. coming up, don't doubt the fed. we hear a september hike is very much in play. after the bank of japan disappointed investors on friday, can prime minister abe make up the difference with his 28 trillion yen stimulus plan? finally, uber hitches a $28 billion ride with didi. this is bloomberg. ♪

3:14 am
manus: welcome back. it is 8:14 on monday morning. the whole of europe as a little bit of a better bid. european stocks are gaining. chin a is in pause mode. you have the fed pushed into a holding pattern again as the probability of a rate hike on the back of weak gdp numbers did not do anything. and we saw those stress tests. banks thisbout the morning. caroline: it really is, manus. the second-best performer on the
3:15 am
industry groups today. in fact, every industry group on the stoxx 600 is rising, but the banks are some of the top performers, as well as the miners. interestingly, the leader of the pack is a portuguese bank, when the stress test did not actually analyze portuguese banks. look at monte paschi, moving 6% higher. hoping the capital raise will indeed help his company whether tehe storm. was tellingto gallo us, we need to see consolidation. keep an eye on some of the key banking stocks. we know some of this has been affected by monetary policy and we are sticking with that theme next. manus: absolutely, let's turn our attention to the fed. william dudley says he would not rule out hiking rates this year. he said "it is premature to rule out further monetary tightening
3:16 am
this year." speaking to bloomberg in china, the president of the dallas fed, robert kaplan, he stuck to a similar tone. >> i think september is very much on the table. but i think we will have to see how events unfold. so, it is too soon to jump to a conclusion on that. one of the things i have learned as a central banker, you have got to be patient. and we have got time to make a judgment between now and the september meeting and they want to take advantage of that time. we have two job reports between now and then and i want to get the benefit of the information before commenting. manus: meanwhile, the u.s. tenure futures have risen the most since december of 2012, the sign that the rallies have succeeded. i am just looking at this. you have got kaplan and deadly udley, both trying to shift
3:17 am
our thoughts on rate hikes. this is the dollar and the probability of a rate hike. the market says there will be no rate hike until september of next year. early dislocated? -- are we dislocated. are we really that far apart between the fed and ourselves? >> they are pricing some probability, about 4% of a hike in december. i think we are getting towards a point of complacency in the bond market in general with very low yields across the world. unfortunately, part of this is because, even if the fed is trying to lean against this bond bubble, there is every other central bank in the world that is easing. you got the boj, that has already. some more using. -- that is already done some more easing. last, you got more ecb qe to be
3:18 am
discussed in september. every other central bank in the world is easing. the balance sheet of all of them together is a lot bigger than the fed. they delivered because the have bond markets. but they cannot lean against everyone else. so, we are still in a downward pressure for bond yields and for rates. unfortunately, this leaves very little for investors. we are starting to have areas of the bond market that are effectively, in a bubble. you are buying because yields would be tighter, not because there is value. sooner or later, this ends badly. it will not end badly in one week, but it will not end well. caroline: where is it wrong to have been going into? emerging markets, clearly exposed to what the u.s. federal reserve does. we are positioned very
3:19 am
closely on the dollar duration, because that is where we have some better growth. so, even though everyone is looking for a safe haven, buying treasuries, buy low volatility equities, so, bond-like stocks. or even high yield bonds in the u.s. energy prices can still go down. oil is just a little bit over $40. we sell what happened earlier this year and last year when oil dropped. what happened earlier this year and last year when oil dropped. the u.s. energy sector is still in the doldrums. we have some countries which are energy sensitive, oil exporters, or commodity exporters. so, these china satellites and energy exporters are still vulnerable. they have rallied a lot, but we are avoiding them. we focus on countries which have a diversified growth model.
3:20 am
they don't only export energy. think about sri lanka, export tea. chinaina was part of the train. these are countries that people usually don't look at, but they are a lot more resilient if you have an energy shock. they are not one trick ponies that focus only on energy. the countries that focus only on energy will have trouble, including some of the middle eastern countries. saudi arabia for one, which has to restructure their growth model. manus: alberto gallo, staying with us. up next, waiting for abe. after the bank of japan disappointed investors on friday, cam prime minister abe make up the difference? we discuss that next. this is bloomberg. ♪

3:25 am
response? >> i think there is a slow shift in the understanding of policy. in the beginning, after the crisis, people thought -- central bankers thought qe would solve everything and that is what they told investors. the ecb was a little more honest, and the bank of japan also said qe. all the economic problems you have. that is not true. qe has put us in an infinite qe trap, and it is starting to have negative effects on the economy. negative interest rates push banks to be more conservative, push people to save more rather than spend more. now, central banks have understood that there are some collateral effects. and what we are trying to do is to have more fiscal policy, governments taking some of the burden. monetary policy should not be the only game in town. so, you have some spending. and the spending is to go to everyone, not just to the people
3:26 am
with asset. qe only benefited rich people because they had assets already, not young people or part people. if you great infrastructure investments and -- if you create infrastructure investments and jobs, consumers will feel like they are in better shape, and they will then, spend less. you need to create a long-term sustainable prospect for people. if you are just spending and splurging money, people know the government is indebted and the save martmore. consumers are smarter than central bankers think. but we are near a shift. we can have itin the u.s. after elections. hopefully this shifts some of the weight from central banks and will help qe to work, finally. manus: i like that line, "consumers are smarter than
