7:40 am
see inflation numbers disappointed in europe and last week they disappointed in japan. there is a global disinflation or a trend we think the fed is not going to be able to ignore in september. caroline: are you looking at the data when you anticipate a fed hike? it is difficult to read the views coming from the different members. they all seem to say something different. at the data.o look this is what we heard from stanley fischer, that the fed is going to be data dependent. we are looking at the data like the federal reserve's. we think the fed will focus on the inflation data as they come together around the table in september. alix: you have a call of buy five-year treasuries. can yields actually go in that kind of environment, when foreign investors come in? yields can go low if yields

someng to the fx market, very big moves in dollar-yen. in particular, this track, the premium on contracts -- this is going to be two-year yields. this is what we saw in the two-year yield market. i want to highlight what we saw in august. it was a huge year up. the biggest pop since november. the highest level for absolute price since november 2015. the big story was the fed re-rating height expectations here. turning to the fx markets, this is a premium on contracts to buy theyen in a month versus dollar. anything below the zero level here and you will be paying a high premium to buy that yen. anything above zero and the premium disappears. in august, we saw the premium disappear. the first time since november of

year yields in u.s. still staying one basis point higher. still towards movement we've seen this month. bonds have had the worst month since june 2015. we have the dollar up, gaining this month as well. this year.nce may of still the u.s., kenya holding onto those gains. we have a strong a.d.p. number a big market reaction. us.d with a.d.p. number. what about friday's number? a fedill it take to see hike come september? >> the first thing to keep in little there's always a difference between the a.d.p. and the official b.l.s. number. i don't think we should put the the horse and assume friday's number is going to thessarily be in line with
8:17 am
a.d.p. you would need to see something over 200,000 to get the fed moving in september. this is a cautious federal fedel reserve. part of what keeps me on the for a september hike is the market doesn't believe that this is what the fed is going to do. as long as they believe that, i think the fed will kind of stay in their corner a bit nervous, ready to come out swinging with an interest rate hike. i don't think this is a fed necessarily there yet. i think they want to see some confirmation growth is picking up in the third quarter after a difficult first half of the year. >> seeing a slight move higher in the dollar after those numbers. becomes about the negative feedback loop. what we saw last august, and , the dollar winds up moving higher. tighteningdoes the for the fed, and they no longer need to hike and they sit back. the market not believing the fed. how do we get out of that? term, we think about monetary policy in a more
8:18 am
complete construct. things like the dollar, conditions, in addition to inflation and employment. for the purposes of the rest of i think you're going to see some dollar strength. think it could get exacerbated by other bank moves september october. i think this is a fed that's wants to hike rates and i think december go in assuming the data doesn't deteriorate. although we will likely see some volatility around december, i don't think it will be quite as what we saw earlier this year. this is a fed which is toerstanding they need telegraph things specifically in order for the market to be comfortable with their conditions. >> what i'm hearing three or four months more of federal confusion. and then therket, fed doesn't do anything to begin with. >> typical. that mixo see within what the e.c.b. does. do they add to stimulus. b.o.j., when they come out,

overbanked. some consolidation amongst these big players would be kind of a good thing. in terms of the way people were looking at energy in the high yield market. european financials are 20% of index.a european equity 234 that's caused the sell we've seen this year. inn you think of energy 2015, high yield drove the selloff. the question isn't necessarily see consolidation. i think we will see consolidation going forward. i think what we need to ask is there opportunity being created. stocks and bonds both look expensive. globally are a source of value. the one part of the market that still looks really cheap. an indication that some m and a is coming down the road and can investors benefit from it. rallying fornks two days. does the kind of rotation continue? rotation from a more defensive posture towards a more cyclical posture is dependent on what happens in the

global economy. cyclicles do well when the curve is steepening and when inflation bottom.f the there's uncertainty following brexit. we're not sure if europe is on same track as last year, but i think you're seeing policyions that monetary may not be able to do a ton more. going to take a bigger role, that means more government spending higher taxes. a more optimistic outlook over all for the global economy. trade has some staying power probably. also they look cheap. so you get value investors playing that game as well. >> david at j.p. morgan. us i'm pleased to say. and coming up, donald trump border for af the private meeting with mexico's president as he looks to shake the presidential race in a big immigration push. we head to washington next. this is bloomberg. ♪

now the swing producer and with shale and the ability for u.s. producers to turn that on and off fairly quickly, there is some room and some cushion. this will come back and heard us sometime in 2017 -- 2018 if producers are not able to start ramping up production. alix: do we see that reflected in the cost curve yet? next year, maybe $50 for oil? i think the cost curve will be dependent on the producers. some are significantly lower than that. is key we have to look for where are these guys? we are starting to see some oil rigs come back. at one point is the supply /demand ratio going to be off? inventories are very high.
8:39 am
oil is weighing on crude and how we saw it moved from $51 in early june to $39 at the beginning of august. we need to see $55 for these producers to bring crude production back on and keep it back on. that's the one thing that will help us avoid a supply crunch. a macro risk advisor was against big oil and he said they will have to cut their dividend and make a decision between debt and and have no choice. do you see that future for big oil? don't, there was a time maybe nine months ago that a lot of companies are facing the decision about yield or growth. a depleting asset, the company -- in order for them to survive, they have to grow.

9:11 am
the low yields give you know cushion against the risk and that rates and the rising. we think that will be another factor that will support a u.s. bond price rally. international investors are biased for the u.s. dollar. the u.s. 10 year is at 160 and that looks relatively attractive more than germany and japan. caroline: are investors hedging from japan and europe? their yields are basically zero when it comes to buying into u.s. treasuries. >> the issue that people think about his long-term opportunities. the dollar is more likely to appreciate going forward. that is the international investor's bias. if you are getting a 1.6% kind of yield, you are still going to do better in the u.s. treasury inket than you would securities in europe and they

correlation with the dollar that has helped performance of all emerging markets. the emerging markets have had quite are run. we spoke with an analyst and makes a big that's in the emerging market. he does not hedge so what is your strategy when you get it emerging markets? >> we would either hire an active expert who can make those individual calls and we would take a low-cost approach and index it. do an engineered equity approach where we would buy high-quality companies and high alix: dividend payers so we can attack that market. alix:what we saw in august last the and in january around fed rate hike wasn't instability over emerging markets.
9:24 am
there was turmoil all across the emerging markets. we are not seeing at this time around, why not? peopleially because don't think the fed will get aggressive. if the market felt the fed would be aggressive raising rates and would do a couple of times over the next year, we would not be as sanguine over the outlook over emerging markets. thisine: how much does intertwined with other asset classes? there are oil gyrations. it's more of a macro standpoint than a micro standpoint. it's tied to the dollar. the week dollars good for commodities if you look at the major market. . emerging economies, they are genetic commodity consumers so they benefit economically when commodity prices go down the market does not always understand that but the dollar impact is probably the most important. the presidential election is not just protectionism from
9:25 am
donald trump but the officials in europe as well. if you get a five of protectionism in other countries, doesn't that trickle through to latin america and mexico and china? >> it could but we have already seen a material slowdown in global trade. the economic growth in the emerging market economies is coming from domestic consumption. from is not in a fitting global trade a lot so it's more of a consumption story then it is a dependence on exporting low-cost goods. alix: what's your favorite emerging markets story? asia from a long-term standpoint, we've got the highest return forecast for asian markets. central europe being the second most prosperous and latin america would be third. alix: thanks very much. the opening bell is up next on "bloomberg ."

miners are trading lower. the ftse is slightly up. the dax is off by a quarter of a point. inthe upside is the cac40 france. as the bell sounds in the united states, we are keeping an eye on the futures market which has been relatively flat. the adp number was better than had been expected. what does that signal for the friday jobs number? what does it mean for a fed hike in september? alix: it means a relatively calm market today. the s&p 500 is down by 1/10 of 1% but if it got again for august, it would be the sixth straight month of gains to the longest since may of 2013. not with a lot of volatility.
9:31 am
it's the 1% move countdown. we're taking a look at the oil price. interactive intelligence is takeout from m&a genesis and the share price is at $60.50 and that stock is rallying. let's get to the other asset classes. oil is a big mover today. it moved to the downside about 1% with shell saying they could be moving nigerian oil on a pipeline sooner rather than later. moving the oil price lower with more supply coming online. the other mover has been the dollar. it climbed to its highs right after the better and expected -- better than expected adp number. this is where you will see the action if there is any into jobs friday and the dollar-yanis

front and center. the dollar is opera six the yen which is the longest streak in a while. caroline: so much focus on that number. i want to see where the asset classes are. in august, we have seen the selloff in bonds but the yields have been driving down over the course of the past few months. this is the u.s. yield crashed below 4% in the course of late june and early july after the brexit a vote. it suddenly is diving lower than the yield we saw on the s&p 500 in terms of did it -- dividend. searchs moving into the for dividends on stocks rather than perhaps looking for yield
9:33 am
from the 30 year debt. is that still the way we should progress? where do we go in the hunt for yield? do you stick with bonser equities? -- do you stick with bonds or equities? wind up correlating together. they are forced to sell and that brings more selling pressure on both asset classes. we are still so close to the record high in the s&p 500. will we managed to get it today? joining us now is jonathan gliona, based on his latest note, he says he's not buying that chart. you say overall that low yields in bonds does not matter, we should get into stocks. >> the last time i was here, we talked about a lack of good fundamental drivers.
9:34 am
fundamental drivers are things like expanding profit margins. the counterargument we get is that interest rates are low and low interest rates on their own justify stock prices. there are a few lines of reasoning with that argument. the first one is what i would call a dividend discount where people say the stock market is really a stream of future dividends. when he reduced the discount rate would lowest rates, that string the future dividends is worth more on a present value basis. that's pretty straightforward but the second line of reasoning is there is no alternative. is when fl bond prices -- when bond prices -- and bond yields are lower, investorsee bonds and go into stocks and that causes stock prices to go higher. what we wanted to do is look at these arguments and decide whether they are valid and
9:35 am
whether they should cause us to be more bullish on the equity market. the answer is no, where do you see the s&p 500 going? >> we were simply not convinced. the arguments failed to make us more optimistic on the s&p 500. the dividend discount argument and interest rates are lower but what we think is happening is investors are failing to take down the growth expectations in line with what low interest rates are really telling us. over the last 70 years, dividends for the s&p 500 have compounded at a rate of about 6% per year. if you take her and expectations for inflation and real economic growth to my think you can make a strong argument that future dividend growth is only potentially around 3.5%. you have seen a big reduction in the potential for growth. 30 is a lot of talk about companies and how they add value and boost their dividend but
9:36 am
dividend growth can be primarily explained by inflation. inflation seen, expectations have come down a lot so that should cause or dividend growth expectation to be significantly lower. when you reduce that expectation, the dividend discount model does not work. 3.5% growthok at over the next five years which is different than the other models. have just charted the dividend etf versus the s&p 500. right now, we have started to see the dividend stocks underperform the s&p 500 which is the right line. the s&p 500 is the blue line. growth,e a six and 5% what is the downside selloff to equities? >> we think it's reasonably limited. bet we argued is you should expecting low returns from equities.
9:37 am
when you think about dividend paying stocks, we have seen those roll over but after a tremendous rally in the first part of this year and evaluation levels that had gotten expensive. think about where money goes as interest rates go down, i think you can make an argument that money rotates out of certain sectors like financials into dividend paying stocks like utilities when interest rates go lower. find in ailed to research is any evidence that money flows out of bonds into equities when interest rates go lower. instead, what seems to happen is money chases returns. bond funds go down, have higher returns and the money continues to chase it. as opposed to rates are low so now we want to go into equities. we often think about this at the
9:38 am
momentum effect. it works well because money chases returns. we are not convinced by the argument that money will leave bonds and go into equities because rates are low. in terms of sector tech -- in terms of sectors like banks they may get lower dividend returns. >> one thing is to look for sectors that can generate dividend growth. we have been talking about the consumer discretionary sector. have high ands expanding profit margins which is something we think is crucial when you are late in the business cycle like today. they also have high and increasing dividends which we think will become a bigger and bigger theme in a low dividend growth environment.
9:39 am
that is a sector we would highlight. it's not your traditional late cycle pick but we think there are different forces right now going on that make you want to find these sectors that can generate their own dividend growth in their own stories. caroline: does money come out of the u.s. entirely and where does ago? have really been focused exclusively on where we see the u.s. market going. we are keeping this neutral view. one thing that has helped you us is u.s. equities to us are sort of the lower volatility , more staples like equity market from a global comparison. over the course of this year come as investors have sought the safety in lability stocks, we think that has benefited the u.s. market in relation to international comparisons. the conversation back
9:40 am
to low interest rates, i think international equity markets are a great example of low interest rates doing nothing to help stock prices. japan is the absolute best example. interest rates have been low and declining for 30 years in japan is belowhe nikkei where it was 25 years ago. . you had an instance per low interest rates failed to generate growth you could make an argument that perhaps in the u.s., you have a similar dynamic. when you think about interest rates from the perspective of equities, they are neutral. what i mean is they are neutral in they are generating and moderate amount of inflation and it's really inflation that matters for equities. to be 3%rates needed to generate inflation than that is neutral, too. we don't look at interest rates as being a low but neutral. alix: a counterintuitive

bedfellows. it's an interesting combination. you would think ireland would want to collect the money come of putting billion dollars, but instead, it must be business friendly. apple and the other big antinationals that have been island have fueled their economy. the most important thing is keeping the economy going and the u.s. got the ball rolling. there were hearings in washington complaining about the sweeter deals that apple had cut and he rested not too much but europe set up intact and -- and took notice and is trying to go after that money. it's an unusual moment. the u.s. says it does not want to collect an island does not want to collect and the eu says they better do it. caroline: does the u.s. want to lure back the tech companies to collect the tax revenues? tim cook says it's overreach by the eu to go after this money but part of what's going on is the u.s. is saying that is
