12:06 pm
you have a final plan for the second quarter of 3/10 of 1%. its 1.6% on a year-over-year asus. we know that easing policy has benefited bonds. should the ecb at stocks to its chopping list? let's get some insight from jeremy smith -- shorts from earning tree. we know it's running out of funds to buy. what do you think of that argument? an interesting word where central banks are going into stocks. you have the fed, ecb, the bank of japan, the bank of japan is buying stocks today. they thought it was a different -- disappointment. they bought $60 billion in stocks a year. think are a few lessons from
12:07 pm
what japan is doing that the ecb would think about. they are buying to indexes. there is a lot of criticism that they are distorting or becoming shareholders because it gives big weight to small companies. they have to be successful. there is another issue with central angst weinstock. a bond matures. a stock, they will be on the balance sheet for a long time. will lay sell a stock? that is one question. scarlet: they need to think of an exit strategy. jeremy: will they ever exit now they have these stocks on the bout sheet. it's natural. if they are running out of corporate and government bonds, should they buy u.s. treasuries? i think that's a different question that would explain things. david: we have policy meters in frederick this week. jeremy: they haven't taken any action since march. the inflation
12:08 pm
expectation, they have been trending down. they are at the same level they were in march, when they expanded the bonds. from that mandate, you expect them to take more action at some point. is it going to be this thursday? expect 80% of people them to extend the duration of the program. right now, it's going to expire in march. the first up is expanding that by another six months and i think people expect that to happen. scarlet: what would be the catalyst to them buying equities? jeremy: will equities and stimulate inflation? their mandate is inflation. they have a mandate of employment. in the u.s., it actually makes more sense. it would be tougher to get past to the congress. bonds, the u.s.
12:09 pm
bonds would stimulate inflation more. it's all about the currency. the weaker euro is the one thing mario draghi was talking about. that is still very true today. he wants the weaker euro. i think u.s. treasuries solves that. david: what is the status of the central bank trade? might be dead right now? jeremy: i think they are supporting the bond market. yields are very low and inflation is low. stocks, if you look at stocks versus bonds, bonds look much more expensive than stocks. u.s. stocks are expensive versus history, compared to bonds they are relatively cheap. you would still say european stocks are cheap and then u.s. stocks. japanese stocks are cheaper. you would probably favor the
12:10 pm
foreign markets over the u.s.. bond yields are down globally. scarlet: let's talk a little bit about what we can learn from the bank of japan. you mentioned that they went into etf and distorted the market a little bit. do you see the benefits of what the boj has done? jeremy: they are trying to change perception. they want to make it safer and tell investors to come in and not be scared about weinstock's when the market is going down. -- when stocks are going down. investmentt more toward that. household start feeling more confident. i think there is something to buying stocks. there is a different mandate for the ecb. david: let me about desk asked you about the difficulty of
12:11 pm
navigating this space. you are seeing outflows. talk about how hard it is to navigate this environment right now in light of that. getmy: when summits negative, that is a sign that it's a better time to turn around. but everybody is irish, -- everybody tracks and it's easier to get disappointment. with sediment being negative, it's easier. now is a better time. it's the reverse in terms of what people think. saying by when it's out of favor, that's the time to come in. but everybody is enthusiastic is not the good time. scarlet: we not only have the ecb, we have canada meeting as well. the biggest surprise would be if the fed actually did something. most people don't expect the fed to do something in september.
12:12 pm
everybody is looking at december. i think the big surprise to be of the fed said we've been saying we are getting closer to our mandate, we actually did something. againstsay the odds are september. i think it's more likely december. and,cb extend third base that's not going to be a surprise. scarlet: thank you very much. david: a major shift in the presidential race. how worried should mrs. clinton be? this is bloomberg. ♪

12:23 pm
the tightest pulling. the is a place where democratic base in the republican base are evenly matched. it's a persuasion game for the middle. it's all about the independent voters and the ground game, convincing people in the middle the moderate voters that you are the guy or girl. david: we look feel like twhirl college map, so many surrogates are destined to go to pennsylvania in the next few weeks. you have it was before and, bill clinton, president obama, bachus to the calculus. how is important is pennsylvania? steve: it's a huge state that they have an advantage in. they have a larger democratic base there. they have to do less work. if they turn out their pace and pennsylvania, they win.
12:24 pm
donald trump has a heavier lift. he sees it as an opportunity. he will have to persuade his base and independent voters and chip away some them a credit voters from the other side. if he can do that, it's the type of state that plays to his strengths. didworking-class voters particularly male voters there who have seen the job loss. going to siphon off any, that's where he can do it did -- do it. it's one of the biggest. scarlet: i want to highlight to , this is the election special report. you've got top headlines in the latest poll results. there is a chart of the poll as well. the blue line is tracking hillary clinton. hillary clinton is at 46.2% and donald trump at just under 43%. david: the way that the press

12:26 pm
work is likely to get done? steve: i think they will avoid a government shutdown. especially head of the presidential election. they are suspending bill deadlines. i think we can expect them to pass a continuing resolution that pushes that back to december because nobody wants to do the heavy lift. there will be a fight over zika funding. fightinge a lot of over not passing a rescue package. other than that, i don't think it's going to be very bloody. scarlet: coming up, boston unveils its new system. we will speak with the ceo covenant. this is bloomberg. -- we will speak with the ceo next. this is bloomberg. ♪

12:32 pm
emily: you are kicking off your annual conference this week and you have out this new product. why do you think this is better than anything anyone else has on the market? >> we want to make it easy for people to share access and collaborate around their information. we are pretty far along on the journey. we have 60% of the fortune 500 , procter &ike uber gamble, ge. everything in business and work is changing very demonically. when we look at how enterprises were today, they still need a hodgepodge of solutions around storage, workflow software, and we don't think that companies will be able to work in a modern way is that is the set of tools they are left with. what we have a doing over the past several years is to imagine how work will look like in the
12:33 pm
future, and how box can get to the center of that. one of the new capabilities we are offering is called box relay. it allows you to streamline a lot of the routine work you are doing. things like processing invoices, all ofsales contracts -- these things that companies do hundreds of thousands of times every day or month -- we want to simplify the work that goes into that. we released box relay this morning. how long have you been working on this with ibm? what was the role? itwe have been working on for about one year. , it isarate roles are built on the box platform, so security ase data,
12:34 pm
box has. it uses a lot of ibm's workflow, intellectual property, and technology. we have combined it with boxes user experience and collaborative tools. some: aren't there already cloud-based workflow management tools out there? verythink this will be complement each of products. our core focus is around content. it has to have a document at the center of what you are trying to do. whether that is an invoice, a anntract, and hr process -- hr process. this is meant to solve a different use scape. what it is replacing is a lot of the legacy technology that companies invested in that do not really pay off. emily: we reported that dropbox
12:35 pm
is potentially moving forward in plans to go public. in 2015, they boosted their shares, giving it up bigger -- a bigger lead over box. dropbox also growing 80% in that part of the market, box growing 40%. does that concern you at all? >> i think it is like comparing apples to oranges. the growth rate and the figures of the kinds of products that people are buying our action pretty different when you break down the numbers. for instance, just in the past quarter, we grew just our large 50% yearlone, over over year. we are still growing significantly in the key segments of the large enterprise market. emily: then, going public, does
12:36 pm
that change the competitive landscape for you? >> i think it will actually make the financial comparison more transparent. that will be easier to answer these kinds of questions in the future. respectwe have a lot of for dropbox and what they have been able to build. it will be interesting to see how they do publicly. what about microsoft.co they have been increasing their work in the cloud. they obviously have a larger segment than box does. >> it is interesting. microsoft is becoming more more of a significant partner with us. we will be talking at the conference tomorrow about how we are driving and openness with microsoft. things like microsoft office, outlook, using the box services. i like to think of them more as a partner. in general, whatever we are trying to do -- whether it is
12:37 pm
microsoft, box, ibm, dropbox, or anyone -- we think the way that things work now is way too slow, complicated. what we want to do is dramatically signified that. take the money spent every year on legacy technology and help all of that move to the cloud. emily: let's talk about this competition versus cooperation theme. you will be sitting down with diane greene, who runs google cloud, you will also be speaking with microsoft, as you mentioned. i don't get it. how does this work? they are also the elephants in the room when it comes to your company. >> we have a very deep belief that the future of enterprise is customers will choose the way all want the software to work together. and a customer oriented world, you need the ability to work with all of your former or could
12:38 pm
be competitors. what you are ultimately doing is trying to build the best possible solution for the customer. about a year ago, apple announced a new ipad. on the stage, they demoed microsoft office on the ipad. aple, they obviously have limited desire of windows to take off for certain parts of microsoft to take off, but the two companies came together because they knew, for customers, having office on the ipad would be significant. we need to work with any of the players where customers are trying to drive a great user experience. that means, even quad rating with companies that compete with us. emily: when you look at apple, and amazon, had you see the competition between them? will they only become more more powerful? >> i think they will become more
12:39 pm
powerful. we are in really the early innings of what the cloud looks like. if you think about the most amount of money in an i.t. budget is spent on legacy systems -- we are really early on on what this cloud ecosystem will look like. you are looking at the four , there may be room for other players, but in general, they will be the big clouds. google may compete when you what added value services. microsoft might compete when you want productivity software combined with the cloud. in general, we are in the very early stages. emily: we have seen some massive acquisitions. obviously, microsoft buying linkedin, also other big
12:40 pm
buys in the landscape. what do you think will be happening? have a lot of technology companies, a lot of which have a lot of cash, and they are seeing the need to end faster. they can get more innovation from independent companies or startups that they can bring into their organization. it is natural that, when we see ups,nflux of new start and incumbents with cash, we see m&a. : emily: where do you think you will see cash? >> all segments of technology. remainingyou see box an independent company? what is the long-term plan? >> we remain focused on being independent. when you go back to the figure, 30 percent-40% of i.t. budgets are spent on legacy programs --
12:41 pm
we will do somewhere between 392 and 396 alien in revenue. million nearly $400 budget, but going after a market that is $4 billion. it is leaving a lot of money on the table if we were not to be independent. emily: apple's big event is g coming up tomorrow. >> they did not coordinate with us, unfortunate. emily: do you think apple can remain as innovative of the company as it has been? think so. their ability to have the ecosystem worked incredibly well together, i think based on incredible innovation ahead of them. it will be cool to see what they announced tomorrow. i will be on stage, obviously pay attention to our conference, site will not see it in real -- so i will not see it in real time.
12:42 pm
i think the way they are entering the enterprise is strategic as to how apple sees the world. products andzing software, and you see things blossom around the technology. we can go out and get all the software ourselves on the app store. i think they see the enterprise the same way. have a great loss of me software greattem that can -- a software ecosystem that can blossom. prop. you have a can you explain this to me? >> i did not think you would do it. this is great news. emily: this is not affiliated with any political platform. explain. >> our conference is all about making better software that
12:43 pm
works with all of our partners. we truly believe that software must be made great again. while it is not the official conference, the hats look great. it?y: will you wear >> i'm not sure. it does cover my gray hair. it is a cool hat. that is yours to keep. any of your viewers can in the less if they want one. emily: i appreciate that. make software great again. this is something i can get behind. david: thank you so much. scarlet: just a quick check of boxes shares. of 4up 44%. box trading at its highest level in almost 13 months, since august 2015. let's head over now to abigail

doolittle, lies at the -- lies at the nasdaq. abigail: we are up about 4/10 of 1%. the reason is the overweighting of technology. apple, and baidu, and facebook. facebook on record high to hit its best day since april 18. maybe some positive news is coming out of management meetings. plus, we have sebastian over at baird. he expects facebook to take a disproportionately large portion of advertising budget share. we go into the bloomberg. we see that facebook is a bullish chart with the stock

highly determined by what central banks do. it's the demand and supply for securities. the fed dowhat can not to hurt the rest of the world? >> probably hike gradually. we have higher chances of them moving in september mainly because we find it hard to see what they will come up with to say why they are not going. the unemployment rate was ok and we did not have a catastrophe out of brexit. the narrative can be pretty straightforward for delivering a hike in september. the probability is not there but it would take a couple of speeches to lift it up. the hike, they could say the trajectory will be lower and that will be interpreted it as a dovish normalization of policy. chart.t's bring up a

the three major banks assets. the white light is the u.s. in the red line is japan and down below is the tentativeness of ecb. what is the new orthodoxy of economics that links finance? what you think about moving into next year? the policy wind is changing in an important direction. there is greater recognition among policy circles, particularly the monetary ones, that there are limits to lowering rates, the so-called bound is lower relatively shallow because of the frictions we live with. therefore, there has been a push toward expanding fiscal policy and allowing central banks to underwrite essentially bigger expansions through the

1:14 pm
it's not like someone else will show up to by them. doubt and dupont are working on their deal. -- dow and dupont are working on their deal. scarlet: why have the shares decline since the initial offer? >> people are concerned that a deal will happen and then regulators will block it. a lot of this is tied to whether ors u.s. regulators regulators at the department of justice or federal trade commission or eu regulators. they feel someone will block it. this is our function that gives you a snapshot of all the mergers and acquisitions activity. this shows a chart of the activity we have seen. this year, we have seen a slowdown in the last couple of months.
1:15 pm
after labor day is when things start to get interesting across industries. last year, we saw some big deals in november. now we are going into an election year so you wonder what impact this will have. my sense is that september and early october will be busy. enbridge did a $28 billion deal, carl icahn announced a deal. there were five or $6 billion plus situations that went on today. september should be busy from what we can tell. i think we will see a lot of and and a activity. investors assumed to be supportive of this. bridge is a calgary-based company looking to widen -- >> it's maybe the biggest outbound canadian deal. when the oil prices dropped,

they were largely immune from that. investors started to realize that a lot of the companies they do business with could go bankrupt because of oil prices. we will see more consolidation. that is going on and we are replanting all of north america with these shell assets. -- shell assets. building a pipeline is not a $5 million or $10 million deal. it's hundreds of billions so it's likely to be a bigger company. scarlet: you mentioned carl icon. he will take an auto parts supplier private and he is an investor in navistar. >> it's funny how much he plays in automobiles. he also owns pep boys.

he is vertically integrated. >> navistar has not had a great run. their shares were trading closer to five dollars at the beginning of the year and now they are at $22 because of volkswagen. the engineology in space rejected by the regulators or the customers. you've got volkswagen coming in and it has a relatively minor deal but i think vw is trying to distract people from their negativity. david: vw has had difficulty getting into the truck space in the u.s. and we heard about why they are pursuing his deal. >> now is the right time for us because we are developing new components and advanced technologies. with the start of this development project, it's good
1:18 pm
to have it and maybe navistar can generate more economic upside than before. why are they pursuing this? >> they have struggled in the u.s. in the truck space and with consumers. they never dented the u.s. market the way toyota or nissan or honda have. matter.or that i think they are trying to get into the truck space. they can make some inroads here. david: always great to talk to you. scarlet: still i, apple is expected to unveil an upgraded iphone tomorrow but don't expect to much that is new ♪, details next. this is bloomberg. ♪

1:21 pm
analysts say expectations are fairly low. they will probably showcase a next-generation iphone and a watch and software updates. carolutler is joining massar and cory johnson on bloomberg radio. welcome everybody on bloomberg tv. we have john butler, the senior telecommunications expert to talk about what to expect from this apple event. i hear ho-hum. will there be any exciting things announced tomorrow? >> the rumor mill is going but apple is not announced anything yet. you never know. read as agood supplier community so we have a good idea of what's coming. apple normally gives us a major upgrade every two years. overall, if you take a step back, the smart phone market
1:22 pm
innovation cycle, the changes we see in the hardware, is slowing down and shifting to the software side. for the first time in a long time, apple is breaking rank and they will not do a major upgrade, i don't think, tomorrow. they call it the big fall event but i don't think we will see a big upgrade. we will get an improved camera. the homerumor that button will be built into the screen itself. there may or may not be waterproofing. there has been debate on that. the big thing is they are doing away with the headphone jack. carol: i kind of like that. >> i am mixed on that. it presents a problem for people who have a lot of accessories that rely on that port. i have a lot of headphones, speaker systems that plug into that. away, it makest that equipment obsolete and you
1:23 pm
are left with having to buy new accessories. a better processor, better screen, a better camera which is important to a lot of people. cory: also a better battery life because you have freed up space in the unit itself. putting aside the stuff, the question is what they will do in terms of release dates. what should we be looking for? i think what you will see as they normally do is you will see a release around the 16th or in the the month an u.s. and selected developed regions. if you think about what apple sells, they play in a premium segments of they will play to the developed in
1:24 pm
markets like the u.s., western china, canada and even which i no longer really consider an emerging market in the sense we normally think of it. it is also a very important market for apple. in thatchina will be first round and then we will probably see a couple of weeks later, two weeks after or three after the 16th, we will see availability in a broader set of markets. in your research come you talk about next year being the 10th anniversary for the apple iphone and a super cycle for the iphone and maybe that's when we get something that might be more dramatically different. the big enhancement for me, to get that hardware truly competitive with what we see from samsung, for example, is
1:25 pm
apple needs to get an oled screen. it translates to better resolution and better aesthetics to the device itself. i think they are saving that for next year. they are saving wireless charging for next year. if we don't see waterproofing this year, we will certainly see it next year and we may see more variants come next year. there was an original rumor going back about six weeks that apple is going to come out with three different choices of the iphone not just 2. next year, that is a possibility. you are hitting that tenure anniversary so it's an opportunity to really make a splash. i'm sorry, go ahead. apple was handed a gift the failure of the samsung note seven which is being recalled.
1:26 pm
you think that will help? >> i was on the margin a little bit but not as much as you think. i think the migration between android ios is not as big as they make it out to be. we will certainly talking about apple tomorrow, thank you. tomorrow, bloomberg west will be live from the apple event in san francisco at 1:00 p.m. in san francisco. -1:00 p.m. eastern time. this is bloomberg. ♪

no receipts coming in that relied upon sales tax. the solution was the airport widelywhich was not accepted at the time were embraced. it was a controversial decision but it was a big idea. by 1989, the people of denver voted 65% in favor. hugelyport and out to be transformational for the state, making it really a partner in the 21st century global economy. scarlet: what i found fascinating is that the proposal from share of critics republicans to airline executives. >> robert handel was the chairman of american airlines referred to it as a field of dreams. he said denver does not need a new airport.
1:34 pm
what was missing in the discussion and what people did not see is that by creating an airport that would become in thelf a major conduit to north american continent, the south american continent, and asia and europe, it would transform the colorado economy and that's in fact what happened. stapleton whothat was the predecessor was hugely inefficient with national airport delays caused by what went wrong. that was the status quo then. i'm moving to a bigger place -- that the denver airport is the largest geographical airport in the united states, it's the twice --it's twice the size of manhattan island. scarlet: david: i did not know that. inid:looking at job growth colorado over the last 20 years, up almost 37%.
1:35 pm
where colorado is in there are so many technology jobs there. the economy has diversified so how much can you attribute to the airport itself? >> it's interesting you bring up jobs. the two most important parts of the economy to most people are where they live, their house, their home, and their job. it just so happens those are the two categories where colorado, over decades, has been in the top performing states in the country. dedicate caused entirely by the airport? it's hard to say but we know the airport itself was able to make all kinds of opportunities for all kinds of businesses. mayors and 60's -- and succeeding governors all embrace this and recognized this was a ticket to common political

up. politicalat has some penalty for someone who is a mayor or a governor. how do you get politicians to say this is a good event for the long-term? ask the former mayor or current governor of colorado or the mayor, what they delayell you is you can the tax or the spending that you need to make right now but it will cost you far more 10 years from now or 20 years from now than it would cost today. you are much better off and will save money because you will need this improvement anyway. it's just a question of when you do it so better to do it now. look at the state of new jersey. coming out of the global financial crisis, and the ensuing recession, there was part of the federal stimulus.
