markets. we are covering stories for you from the san francisco to robles and saudi arabia. math: the euro rising after the ecb left rates unchanged. scarlet: gary bettman explains the plans for expansion and the significance of the hockey world cup. in saudi arabia, the world is awaiting what could be the biggest public offering ever at aramco. .
climbed the nasdaq has -- it did climb to two straight days, but today it is pulling back. julie: i want to break it -- to bring in some breaking news. the company is expanding its .ermatology business a continues to pursue its takeover of monsanto. all of this according to people familiar with the situation and justding to news that given a bloomberg. the shares are down about 17% year to date. they sell a little less than 1% in today's session. that too it is going on in the u.s., a little bit of a pullback in u.s. stocks. do with mario draghi, indicating that there will not be any more stimulus, at least not immediately.
and that cause a little bit of a selloff in europe and has extended to the u.s. as well. that is coming despite the fact that energy is performing well he -- very well today. an unexpected drawdown for oil. drawdown,n unexpected at the biggest one since 1999. 14.5 million barrels declined in inventory. that explains the uptick in oil prices, now about $47 a barrel. we also cited you stocks perform well today. but only oil is climbing come of a natural gas. inventories rose less than estimated. you look at the top 10 performers in the s&p 500, most, if not all of them, or energy stocks.
we saw the uptick in yields in european debt as well as the u.s.. we have seen this correlation between bonds of the financials, the banks. that is happening was against today is the is go higher. we are seeing the increase in the financials as well. overall, stocks are lower despite some of these big groups that are doing well. matt: and despite a gain energy. julie: retail is one of the things we are watching. we are seeing supervalu, another grocery store chain of -- another grocery store chain coming out with numbers and pier 1 as well. down 15%. the ceo is departing the company. with weakening traffic tens or still-weak
traffic tens. -- trends. matt: mark crumpton has more from the newsroom. mark: hillary clinton says the united states should hunt down and kill the leader of islamic state. said theme time, she u.s. should not put troops on the ground in syria. she spoke at a news conference here in new york. lacks i think the approach i have outlined intensifies what we are doing, but also recognizes that there is no -- in my opinion -- path forward to ground troops that would be an arduous. that clinton also said donald trump sprays of vladimir putin miscarry. that means that as president, trump would that the russian leader do what he wants.
gary johnson was asked on nbc about the besieged city of aleppo. he responded with "and what is aleppo?" more than half of americans now disapprove of obama care. that is according to a new gallup poll. in november, the same survey found 49% were against it. the only surviving suspect in terror attacks is refusing to speak to a judge. he is apparently frustrated by 24-hour surveillance of his prison cell. his attorney says he is not obligated to explain his silence, but is "linked obviously" to the constant surveillance.
scarlet: investors are watching closely the decision out of keptfurt today as the ecb its program unchanged. policymakers do not see an immediate danger to the euro area from the brexit follow-up. >> i think it is all pointed towards december now. draghi made it clear in an indirect way that the governing council is not satisfied with the underlying trend in inflation and they are committed to keep purchasing assets until they see the path of inflation back on a sustainable direction. today, but the forecast of 1.6% inflation in 2018, that is not quite in line with the target and it all points toward
an extension, probably to the december meeting. extensionook at the and we look at present draghi. does it have to do more than that in december? andrew: it looks like there were a few expectations of some action today. given the selloff in the markets. yes, those expectations will be carried forward into december. it is always a hard thing for cannot -- the ecb control the market expectations. drug is doing a good job at not sending any signals. he's giving information very close to his desk -- his vest. will see there is no big reason to be concerned about
what is going on in december. manus: i've got spain over germany at one full percentage point. spain trading at a record low in terms of yields. how far can the spread get? thoughtpreviously, we it could get down to 75 basis points on the 10-year. some of the longer-term concerns about where the eurozone is heading, that is really probably the tightest level. if the ecb does do what we think it does do or will do, which is tells the allocation with the purchases a get -- away from germany, it could come in the room or. but we are looking at 25 basis points from here on. you had recently spanish yields trade under for a period of time now.
with anticipation of the upcoming referendum, is that a spread you would like to play? broadly neutral in terms of that particular spread. we have a bit more of a preference for state -- for spain, owing a bit to the fundamentals into the uncertainty of the referendum in italy. even if the outcome of the referendum were to be a thinkion of it, i don't it is the end of the world in terms of the euros are in. the ecb is throwing a trillion plus of liquidity at this entire market. that technical force alone is going to cap any spread widening. >> how controversial would be if to best ecide
sensitive isly that this is going to be? andrew: the three rules that the ecb has set itself that it will probably has to adjust, all of those three rules are controversial if they are to be relaxed. the p ishe relaxing not the controversial because, at the end of the day, it is the central banks that are taking on the risk. the taxpayers in the corvette these will not bear any losses.
i knowledge -- it's the legal path of least resistance to move that one appeared i think buying bonds below the deposit facility and relaxing the 33% constraints , those are more controversial than the k. jonathan: was going to give us a steeper curve? andrew: get the governments to spend more money and finance in was30-year scarlet: that emco's head of portfolio management. matt: still ahead, who will advise aramco when he goes public? we will tell you what banks are in the running for what is the biggest ipo in the history of the universe. this is bloomberg.
scarlet: this is bloomberg markets. matt: we may be one step closer to what could be the biggest initial public offering ever. company,bian oil commonly known as saudi aramco, an advisor from a to helpboutique banks this company go public and repay 10 of cash in the process. joins us from the london bureau. thanks for joining us. what kind of beauty pageant are we talking about here? what are these banks want to
have to do to get this business? know for the last two months at least, there have been many flights back and from riyadh where the top executives at these banks have been pitching to the company. we are just talking about the independent advisor banks. once these people get added, then they will decide where aramco is going to list. key financialvery hub in the world -- tokyo or hong kong or london or new york. it is one more step in a process that is good to take very long and that we probably won't seek come to fruition until about 2018. but it is the biggest deal in the universe, some of you mentioned. scarlet: matt was not exaggerating here. how is the roles of these --ependent eggs differ
independent banks differ? probably dohey will is the government will have an advisor. maybe michael klein will be with the government. then the company will have a separate advisor. then you have something called a global coordinator, where the banks to the grunt work. so jp has a star there. they will probably add more banks along jp and then two layers down. why this is a big deal is because they are talking about raising $100 billion. 1.01if you just look at , you're still talking about $100 million. that is excluding commissions and excluding the money the banks make on financing investors to come in and buy stakes. the size of the stakes that they buy in 100 billion dollars ipo
is the size of some pretty chunky m&a. that is the kind of money investors are going to look to spend to get at this huge company. so it is a lot of money at stake here. matt: so the banks will have to work hard to get this. what about the exchanges? you mentioned they are looking at places to list. i imagine the new york stock exchange is going to go after them. they are probably going to look at frankfurt or london. ruth: maybe asia. matt: yes. ruth: we know that new york, london, hong kong, tokyo now, these are the markets among those who have pitched to them and have been making a really shown case. i think they will also be looking at regulation in each of these markets in the kind of shares, the structure of shares they will list. they want to be very careful. this is a company that we have known so little about.
so when they go public, given the huge government interest in what aramco means for saudi arabia, you can imagine that they will be very careful about how much data they want to share, right? so they will see which exchange gives them that -- kind of the terms that they are looking at. i imagine that everyone will probably want the prestige of having such a big deal on their exchanges, especially in a year when you see ipo volumes have been pretty dismal this year. the largest ipo this year was a $3 billion deal. see $3 billion versus one hundred billion dollars. you can see where everyone's energies are expended. muchet: brent has pretty held on the $50 a barrel since august 2015. we know why saudi arabia is going forward with this deal.
ruth: it is something they will be closely monitoring. just in terms of execution of this, there is not to speed up the process because there are so many things they need to get in place before they actually got the markets. they need to ensure, when they get there, they have enough investors to actually make this don't happen and make it a success. now that they said they want to do it, they will be keen to there will be a good aftermarket for it. they will be looking at the price of oil, but they will also look at what kind of discount can this give and how they can diversify. scarlet: thank you so much for joining us. matt: we should mention the price of oil. drawdown iniggest u.s. inventory since 1999. as a result, big rally in alternate.
you can see it is up almost 4% right now. $47 and $.20 a barrel. -- $47.20 a barrel. so i'd jump. but like ruth said, this isn't going to have such a very -- of course, brent is the world benchmark, and probably more important. you see a jump across the board on oil. we are still seeing oil that is consistently below $50 a dollar now. coming up, the iphone 7 plus has been unveiled. reverse apple's -- can it reverse apple's sales slump? this is bloomberg. ♪
-- and a whole bunch of other features a hit? we asked tim cook accomplished what he needed to the big event. >> at least for now, they had to deliver in ifo -- an iphone with a few minor improvements. but now they have a between release. david: if you take everything apart from the jack, which is controversial, aren't they just catching up with samsung and the marketplace? >> absolutely. we got to a point in this isustry where the technology
moving three to six months behind each other. we are at the point where we are not seeing any revolutionary features. at some point, yes, apple needs to deliver a big step up in functionality. this market, the way we look at it, is not a massive growth market. it will be more of a replacement market. jonathan: if you look at the analyst ratings, it is buy, buy, buy all through 2016. you are looking about 12% upside? what gets us there? >> there's going to be positive iphone 7.s about the uplift in natural this quarter. next quarter, they will expand distribution much faster.
between now and december, we will have positive yields. us cash flowset to our price tag it. timko, -- if are you're tim cook, what are the markets they can pursue more successfully? >> expansion lies, they have done a pretty good job. at this point, and he is one of the markets they have focused on. david: but aren't they way overpriced for india? >> absolutely. they needed to come up with those at a lower price point. in terms of geographic expansion, unless they come up with a lower price point. david: you are confident all year target price. -- your tiger price. what kind of multiple you need? >> about 10 times free cash flow. they can get us to ground -- to
headlines. mark crumpton has more. mark: a new poll shows donald hillary clinton decisively among people who do not have a high school education. of whitesacked by 55% with no more than a high school diploma compared to 33% for clinton. likely voters that have not gone past high school, clinton leads trump 47% to 42% in a to a contest. representatives from member states and private industry are meeting in belgium to improve cyber security. cyber attackers could cause as much damage as conventional military tax. in july, president obama and nato leaders agreed to add cyber space as a domain for alliance operations, along with land, cnn. air.a and
puza tells bloomberg that a proposed post brexit with the eu is completely unrealistic. if it wants market access, it will need to grant access to workers in the eu and submit the legislative oversight. tim tebow has signed a minor-league contract with the new york mets. the former quarterback will take part in the instructional league in boards st. lucie, florida. scarlet: staying on sports, pretournament games for the world of hockey begin today across europe and north america. they culminate in a two-week
tournament in toronto. national preempt hockey league players from taking part in the lithic's? it's complicated -- in the old picks? -- in the olympics? it's complicated. i spoke with gary bettman. gary: we went to the last five olympics. whether or not we go to future olympics really has nothing to do with the world cup. we envision a tremendously successful event the last two weeks of september in toronto. the players love international competition, love representing the countries. went to the olympics and have been going with the best intentions. but it has gone a little more complicated. we learned over time that it can be terribly disruptive. but the interesting aspect to it is -- we don't make any money going to the olympics.
that has never been why we have gone. it has always gone for the growth of the game. but it's very expensive for us to go to the olympics and that is something that a culmination of the international olympic committee and the international ice hockey federation have dealt with. it appears that president bok has said, at least publicly, the ioc is no longer interested in paying those costs. so at some point, we'll have to discuss that with the double ihf . our season, for a whole host of reasons we discussed in the past, i'm not sure that nhl owners will deem it a wise use of time and proceeds to pay for the privilege of going. scarlet: speaking of that, there is a financial benefit to the the nhl andcause the players association show the profits. what we gross to
as a league, which is going to be over $4 billion this year, the world cup is really just a tiny piece. scarlet: certainly. talk to me about the different revenue streams you will generate from the world cup. gary: all of the above. the games will be covered on media platforms. websitesnternational for nhl.com and the world cup in native languages -- i think seven different languages. the games will be covered. the games will be streamed worldwide. games will be covered on television worldwide. rogers has the rights in canada and will cover all the games. rights.been on the and the united states, espn will be covering hockey for the first time in more than a decade. is great.ortunity
this licensing and sponsorship. we have a fan village where he number of our sponsors are activating around the world cup. it really gives the world cup a huge event feel. we have legacy projects we will be doing in toronto. this is a big event. this is a big deal. in at's going to be held city that is an international say. some people think it is the capital of hockey. in any event, it is a city that has the ability to host major events. and we're looking forward to sharing this great event with the people of toronto and people who fly in from all over the world. scarlet: i asked about the media rights. that is such an exciting part of your sport. i wonder -- what are your discussions, if any, the status of your discussions with companies like twitter or facebook? alternatives to the traditional media giants?
gary: unless your they are alternatives. i think their supplements. it gives fans another way to connect to the game and to connect with each other. havinge we give fans and big events, whether it is the world cup or outdoor games or ways that we connect with their fans to give them another touch point of the game, and twitter and facebook enable us to do that as well. massive you have these deals with rogers in canada and with comcast for the u.s. rights. exceptions for live streaming? gary: out of market life streaming is something we retain. that is our basis -- is that is the basis of our relationship with ban tech. we think, for a sport that
traditional media probably wasn't something that was availed as much as it could have been, going back in the 1970's and 1980's and early 1990's, the digital what forms have given us an opportunity to do a little catching up, to be a little creative, and to give our fans better access to the game. scarlet: do you suppose that one day there will be virtually reality rights to nhl games? gary: we have actually use virtually reality. virtual reality. yes, all of the above. the fact that there are more and more platforms for us to bring ,eople closer to the game because our games are so exciting, so competitive and so fast, all of these things, as they exist now and as they develop, are huge opportunities for us to grow our fan base into better first -- better service our fans. comcast when deals with
and rogers come up in the next 10 years, next five years, who do you think will be of the table? gary: hopefully everybody. [laughter] when we went through the last series of deals -- and we have been, i think him on the cutting edge of some of these deals. the rogers deal was for all of the broad rights, both broadcast and cable and the digital platforms. the nbc deal wasn't. it was made before the rogers deal was. and we used that as an opportunity to then make the deal with bantech. -- contentt content is going to be the most valuable there is. how it gets consumed is something that will continue to evolve. and you got to be fairly nimble and fairly and top of the curve in terms of what the new develop its are. sothings are changing rapidly. for me to predict what it will be like in three years or five years or 10 years would be
nothing short of sheer speculation. scarlet: that being the case, does that mean in the future, you suck -- you signed shorter-term deals? gary: not necessarily. you hope to have a partner that is as nimble as you are. what you're doing is giving people entities with a long-term agreement the incentive to invest in you, to exploit new technology and to market and promote the game with you to build the fan base. scarlet: that was nhl commissioner gary bettman. whathour, he will tell us effect it is having on bottom line in the franchise in vegas. matt: breaking news and cnn. ola -- fabrizio is stepping down.

last six times after the iphone event by 1.5%. here we have a new phone and the stock is down. also somewhat surprising is the street is mainly positive on this. citi saying that there was an iphone surprise in a good way. however, there is one downgrade. taking thergo, rating to market perform, saying that all the positives are priced in. he expects the stock to remain range bound. theas been range bound over last year, swinging up and down on the fate of the iphone and what it has done to revenue growth, the drop in revenue growth. interesting though, when we look at a longer-term chart, just last week, apple put in a [indiscernible]

the prospect of the first direct election of a chief executive in 2017 has increased the tensions between hong kong's yearning for autonomy and china's insistence on its loyalty. 70-see legislative council generated record turnout and his will and support for pro-democracy candidate. opposition picks up three new seats in the september 4 election. bolstering its power to block key legislation. the 1984 seen a british power transfer agreement specified hong kong would give a high degree of economy for 50 years. two years ago, tens of thousands of students and citizens flooded the streets of central hong kong, demanding an into what they say was china's increased political interference.
