doing this for a while. i think three decades or so. >> it doesn't seem that long. were talking about activists and how their strategy has shifted over time. can you take us through how activist have changed over the years? >> i'm not sure at the rest have changed as much as the climate they are operating in and the response has changed. you might think of it as three phases. in the first phase when they began to take positions in companies and show up with a letter or a filing or something like that. the structure of the engagement was sort of overtly somewhat hostile at least. corporations responded very strongly with a sense that what are these doing here. it was confrontational. tendedtial core response
to be to circle the wagons and try to fight this. that happened for a while with some amount of's access. over time the corporations continued to respond that way. they had more mixed results. they either won but it turned out they didn't really win or they just lost. over time the dialogue became more open. other shareholders began to join with the activist. it began to be hard to distinguish a true activist from someone who had long-term goals. you begin to see corporations losing or at least not winning. phaseed to the current where the engagement is more dynamic. corporations are looking for more positive ways of responding. there are looking for more ways of engaging with shareholders and it's more of an open dialogue. >> do they feel like the
activists are not solo operators? they have investors working with them? >> you occasionally hear people quick things about something called a request for activist. feelholders actually do the company should be taking a more aggressive strategy. at least allegedly they are out there quietly soliciting. i don't know how much that really happens. do tend to get together. there is some overlap in goals classictegy between the activist community and the straight long holder. >> how has the law impacted or kept up with shareholder democracy and the push by activists? historically we were all brought up to believe that
companies should be run by their and theredirectors were a selected group of issues as to which shareholders were empowered. a handful of things laid out in delaware and other state law. otherwise the board would run the company. over time you're beginning to see greater and greater police in shareholder engagement and more active shareholders. companies recognize that face. shareholder comes and takes a major position and has a lot of work it is worth listening to see what they have to say. >> you were intimately involved with dell. we had carl icahn. that was in 23rd team. how did the rulings of that impact companies since then?
are they doing things differently? activism around m&a is ace upset of this broader topic. you are beginning to see circumstance is in which you will he shareholders either overtly activist or with their own agendas looking for an opportunity to get a price raise and provide other alternatives. i think that's a fact of m&a now. advisers certainly have denied to that. it is something you do pay attention to. >> how did carl icahn complicate matters? >> i have tried to forget all of that. >> because he made it so miserable? >> he took a substantial
position in the stock coupled with the position that some long holders who were in the stock at a loss help together. near blocking position on the special boat that was required for that deal. the result was a negotiation about what the voting rules and the price would be. and ultimately ended in a price increase. and a successful transaction. it has worked out reasonably well. he has done some huge acquisitions. >> and us has happened that it's very hard for me to understand where it stands. the computer business seemed to rally and hit more tough sliding. they sold a bunch of computers. i don't really know where they are now. >> besides dell you have advised international paper and verizon and sotheby's. changed?boards
>> probably three or four ways. thanare much more engaged they were before. studies show they are spending more time. they have more to read. there are spending more time engaged on strategy. some clamoring for greater shareholder engagement with shareholders. i think there is a sense in well advised companies that they need to be in touch with their shareholder base. hope is theye that will get to pursue that vision. one of the risks of increased shareholder democracy and everybody feeling empowered to make suggestions is you constantly wind up at a
crossroads in life. i have a 13-year-old daughter who goes to an all girl school. that was not an easy decision or hard decision. we thought about the pros and cons. where not sure if it's going to work. it doesn't make sense to discuss it at dinner every night. to weigh the cons and pros and make a choice and see how it works. >> does that change how the rest of the board operates? so many different anecdotes about that but i'm not sure i know how to generalize. i have heard a number of management members and ordered members say that having well informed motivated younger and more quantitative input from a different kind of director can be very help pull. i have also heard people say that the wrong personality makes can erode communication.
it depends on the chemistry of the group in question and their determination to be an effective board. >> we have gotten further from the financial us. our boards more open to deals are more willing to some sort of company that wants to do a big acquisition giving the concern about finding growth? much academic research on m&a and whether it help support doesn't help. is it better to have horizontal deal because of the synergy. i think boards are open to m&a. there is a sense that an increasingly globalized economy some amount of market power and scale and greater access to distribution and technology. brands areul global important attribute. also things people
decide they can't develop themselves and they would rather buy. thank you. back to you. matt: thank you, jeff mccracken. and jeff rosen. an hour new york city mayor bill de blasio will hold a news conference on the weekend bomb explosions in manhattan and new jersey. we will have live coverage and you can follow it on your bloomberg. this is bloomberg. ♪

one point of concern could be jp morgan saying the very bullish reaction to the iphone seven is premature. also, last week was apple's best week in five years, gaining more than 11%. today's move down could just the a bit of consolidation. obviously the biggest company in the world. when apple goes down, it tends to be a big way on the indexes. abigail: indeed. another big drag to date is paypal. the analyst saying the shares are fully valued but the multiple at this point is attractive. plus, there is potential concerns around the earnings estimates between 27 and 2020. ,hen we go into the bloomberg that paypal we see

hurt. he was taken away on a stretcher. the associated press reports the mayor of linden, new jersey says that an owner of inart noticed someone asleep a doorway. officers joined gunbattle, and he was wounded. more than two dozen people were hurt in the new york city blast in the chelsea neighborhood on saturday night. inipe bomb also exploded seaside, new jersey. no one was hurt in that explosion. president obama says the investigation into the bombings in new york and new jersey is moving rapidly. he says that americans will never give into sears and the bombings are not linked to stabbings in minnesota. at this point,:
we see no connection between that incident and the incident in new york and new jersey. we are grateful the one lost their life. mark c.: in the minnesota incident, nine people were stabbed. the rampage ended when the man was shot dead by an off-duty police officers. none of those injured suffered life-threatening wounds. authorities are investigating the stabbings as a potential act of terror. hillary clinton and donald trump arnett can in florida. that is according to "the new times." 41% compared to trump, 41. clinton leads among hispanic voters and black voters. british prime minister theresa may will urge the united nations general is simply to do more to control mass migration.
may speaks at the u.n. tomorrow here in new york. she will argue that mass migration hurts the refugees and the countries that they enter. they will say that migrants should take asylum in the first safe country they reach. as i mentioned, at any moment, we are expecting merit of lawsuit to hold a press conference on the bomb york and new new jersey. you are looking at a live shot of one police plaza in the city or. in the city. let me bring in steve. i can say, coming from penn station today, it was eerily quiet, and seemed tense. >> that is right. i think everybody is on the edge of their seats, try to figure out what is going on, what is happening, and what comes next. then, for the last way for
hours, how people will respond, particularly the presidential candidates. i think everybody tries to be sensitive and careful about not over politicizing these kinds of things. when you have all of the elements of terrorism in a situation, in particular, in new york, where nobody, fortunately, lost their lives, you can expect politics to come out and politicians to come out pretty strong with their talking points. mark c.: we have also seen that because we saw the governor of new york, andrew cuomo, come from albany to talk to people down here. he toured the chelsea residents, trying to give people a sense of calm saying, in effect, they cannot let terrorists win, and new yorker should go on with their daily activities. >> that's right. we saw this dividing line before in the present of race. donald trump is talking a lot about refugees, about racial
profiling, and the need to not be politically correct. we seek hillary clinton coming out against that today, talking about how we cannot be divided. she is using a lot of the same lynwood she has used in the past about needing to come together and support muslim americans and not profile them. kind of groundhog day. every time this happens, we see both present shall candidates in particular come out and take their side in this rhetorical .ar again, donald trump has been tried to tie hillary clinton for some time to what is going on in the middle east saying her policies in iraq are what caused the rise of prices. we can expect that in the coming days as well. this will just continue. mark c.: i know, of course, this is what you cover, the political sphere.
there is almost a sense of foreboding that this does in fact have to become political. first and foremost there is the investigation. to find out that it's the person ino is in cut dusting -- custody, who they are describing as a person of interest, did this by himself, or part of a larger cell operating in the new york area. >> that's right. i think some people are hesitant to weigh in on that the ticker question just yet. president obama was hesitant to say anything definitive about that investigation. as of now, politicians are deferring to authorities and letting them do their work. mark c.: the sense that this is coming just a few days after the commemoration of the 9/11 attacks, what are we to make of this, if anything? just is too soon to say yet. as i mentioned earlier, both presidential campaigns are likely and already have started
aboutp on this and talk whatever each side wants to talk about. for donald trump, he gets criticized for invoking fear, as he is very focused on policies that he believes have risen to the rise of such loan wolf attacks. hillary clinton on the other hand is talking a lot about steady leadership. that is the route that we can expect her to go down is donald trump comes out and says things that people will find divisive, hillary clinton will counter and say he is unfit temperamental he to be president. i think that is where you will .ee the political exchange go as for the actual investigation and the details, we will have to wait and see. steve making a correct
point there, all of this happening as we are just two months away from the presence of election and one week away from donaldst debate between trump and hillary clinton which will take place on the 26th of september at hospira university here in new york. any moment now, new york mayor bill de blasio holding a press conference on the bomb explosion in new york over the weekend and the last in new jersey. this is bloomberg. ♪

the infrastructure and you talk about, having your own cloud. what do you offer there that puts you head-to-head with others? >> our strategy has been to build a whole suite of capabilities, starting at the application level, supplemented by a platform. the platform is everything from the database to tools, everything that is not an app or infrastructure. we are highlighting the infrastructure capabilities. for us, that means better performance, better security than anybody on the planet. >> what does it mean for the margin? margins are opaque and no one really breaks it out. what does it mean -- oracle has had this joy of software margins for so long. >> the great thing is the major supplier to the cloud is
ourselves. we have a range of capabilities. , inmargins, we believe infrastructure are just as good as everywhere else. >> that is one place where you would expect competitors -- >> the one issue with the cloud is you have to invest before you have revenue. we were at 39% two years ago and predicted they would move towards 80. in the last quarter we were at 62. the reason they were at 39 is we invested and a lot of data centers of front. 10 of like the hotel business, you build a hotel before you can rent a room. >> it seems like revenue recognition has been consistent for cloud. some other companies and other spaces have big adjustments, really bumpy. us, q1, we just
close. our cloud revenue plus the license business grew 16%. that is the way we look at the two together. >> as for maintenance, long-term, you have such great maintenance stream. the cloud business tends to have less maintenance. i wonder what that means when you look at the future of oracle. >> many of our customers, if they have a support contract today -- let me use an application as an example -- a couple of things would happen. hardware, allng of the infrastructure, the data center, the staff, so actually the support revenue would up. it will go higher because of additional services we are now doing for the customer. the margins would be reflected -- headed towards the 80 that i described earlier. who works down the
street at a company called salesforce, suggested you were buying growth for acquisition, which you have done a lot of acquisitions. salesforce has done some too. how do you make that kind of decision? >> we do well. right now the r&d is in excess of $5 billion. r&d spending is not always the best indicator of yields. at oracle iscator the yield for r&d is so exciting about the number of products. we have written all of our software over the last 7-8 years and it all comes out of r&d. we have a pretty good mapping of what we build. we can go to the market and supplement the r&d with it. companiese
buying companies, run by the cousins of the ceos. you have done this laudable thing where you stepped away and said, i will not that my shares. hell height are you willing to go? had you make that kind of decision? in the middle of that process right now. that is probably where i will it. we cleared all of the regulatory hurdles, except the u.s. >> as you look forward, you think there are more deals to be done out there? >> we do a filter with every acquisition we do -- doesn't make sense to us, doesn't make financial sense, can we run it softly and professionally? we go through all of those filters. i never get into any prognostication on m&a opportunities other than our history is probably the best indicator of future behavior. scarlet: that was cory johnson speaking with oracle ceo and san

there is still a long investigation ahead but now we have every reason to believe this was an act of terror. addition, because this was an ongoing investigation, all new yorkers should remain a gillette. findy given point they may a conversation that could very much aid them. we won all new yorkers to be vigilant and provide that inspiration. number with any information you have. today anded earlier messaging system used by our office management system to get information out to all new yorkers. it had an extraordinary effect. reach all of our
police officers simultaneously. that is something that proved to be very helpful, getting that message out. helpfulve that was very but there is still information that we will need going forward. it will be an ongoing investigation. isally, though this suspect , we will have a very strong and visible presence. we will continue to see this. trained see heavily officers and you will see people in the subway.
the bags being checked and bomb sniffing dogs. that will continue throughout the week and we want that high level of readiness. tosk all new yorkers continue your vigilance. i want to thank assistant director sweeney for the great cooperation at the fbi in this matter. good afternoon. hundreds ofided personnel from new work along bureau and ytd detective developing and tracking leads and revealing surveillance footage and executing searches. collectionr evidence , we began to focus on this man working to develop his whereabouts.
last night, they conducted a traffic stop in brooklyn. reservedcle had been at a location associated with him. circumstances they executed a stop of that vehicle. no one in that car is under arrest. collectionr evidence , searches and interviews were conducted. additional leaves were followed as well and we turn to the public. a short time ago, he was arrested in new jersey. two officers were arrested as well and we hope for their quick
the victims in new york. i believe there is going to be a charge based on the shooting of the officers by the local prosecutor there while that is pending. that thexpect attorneys there will be working to put together a comprehensive and thorough -- throw collection. we are not rushing against each other to bring charges. we have been all racing together but we will take a lot of time that if we bring charges federally that we do it in a way that is careful and thorough. knowledge ife any he had training overseas? you did say he was just --associated with the device. >> we have no knowledge that the
investigation continues. we are not ruling anything out, the investigations take a while. where absolutely not ruling anything out. i'm not going to comment on that. >> could you please speak to the investigations. i have no in the last indication then that there is a self operating. as we develop more information,. [indiscernible]
>> i believe it was, i don't know that for sure. you would have to confirm that with new jersey. i don't have any information on that at all. >> i won't comment on the types of tools that we used other than to say that the tools are fabulous. they are necessary. >> a lot of technology involved in this. a lot of old-fashioned police work as well. this was a quick turnaround and
it happened 50 hours ago and now we have ourselves act in custody. i think it is a tremendous top by all involved. helpful in other instances also. are 36,000 of us but if we can get them engaged, this is the place -- way to go. >> what did you gain from that? i won't comment specifically on something from the pressure cooker. any piece of evidence that we maintained is worthwhile. i would leave it at that. >> was there anything sadistic?
lisa, that is all going to be part of the investigation. this is going to be part of it. >> i don't have any information but we keep all all options open. there is nothing to indicate that he was on our radar. we had reports of a domestic why the but that was allegations were recanted. was the governor invited here?
yes, he was invited and we are working with him but we got together at the site and spoke to folks at the community. and i thinkeration you can see the results of this combined effort. it hascommissioner said, made a huge difference. you can ask his team about that. >> i do not. i do not have information yet to show the path of radicalization. your first question was about a record, i do not recall.
>> donald trump says law-enforcement officials should go back to the playbook. are addressing a perfect crisis, we do not want to talk about partisan politics at this point. and very proud of the nypd fbi. i have a lot of faith in law enforcement and how they do things right now. was new yorkers want to know --ht now are the chances >> at this point we are extremely grateful that we could apprehend the suspect out in linden, new jersey.
we always have to be at the state of alert. i far as this investigation am a lot happier today than i was yesterday. all new yorkers should deals -- feel secure. we will continue in this investigation that we get to know who was involved and why. >> let me just add to that. is no other individual we are looking for at this point in time. second, vigilance is called for. it is very important that if you see anything unattended, call it in. find a law enforcement officer. i think the commissioner is exactly right.
ofare a very appreciated of those who got the suspect. in give us a phil and are you glad that the suspect survived the apprehension? apprehension myself i am much more relieved than i was last night. can you talk about who he is? i can't tell you who he is, we have to build that whole picture. i do not have enough knowledge and my head right now. in new jersey most recently but i would have to go back and look. >> was there anything on him to
suggest radicalization? >> no, not right now. pacifichere any things about how that was helpful. , -- several questions they are obviously. is a very valuable tool. it created a lot of focus and urgent he. enforcement colleagues will be able to but what we know right now it definitely contributed this is -- successful apprehension of the target. there obviously was an imminent threat and it is another innovation of what is going on
that there was a way to reach people different from the past. no more wanted poster on the precinct house wall. this is a modern approach so yes we will use it. it made sense to do it very broadly. -->> we're going to let the cheap talk about that. we have a video of two persons who picked up the bag. they were strolling up and down this avenue. toever, we still want address it. they walked off with it.
hopefully we can get them out. >> do you believe this guy is acting alone? have as now we need to we go for it in this this is part of an investigation. we are not actively seeking anyone. is there any indication -- >> good question. it is difficult to say right now is they even pulled the wire. that is something for us that we can talk about. i do not know if they played a role in that.
[indiscernible] again, from what we have now are two separate incidents. they are very different. we are always free thinking central park because it is still an open case. can you say anymore about the undead -- undesignated pressure cooker? are they still in custody? theyou describe whether could potentially target? still inndividuals are custody and i'm not going to
discuss what we will face in the potential future. did the suspect make any statements during or after? the question is did the subject make any statements, no not that i am aware of. new jersey had a team out there. that will continue as well. reporter: how valuable were surveillance cameras? they were all over the place. >> that is the world we are living in an any street, any captured on video surveillance so as we go through the investigation and continues to gather more surveillance video, it is going to help us move forward in this case. we're going to make sure they are brought to justice.
reporter: what specific criteria is used? in understanding how to reach a terrorism charge, you have to understand the difference between a bomb going off in a crowded the streets. where there -- whether that is , you have tororism know who did it and why they did it in order to meet the statutory requirements. the basic definition of terrorism and the federal law side is the use of fear or violence to achieve political
and social change. from the outside of this case, our first priority was to understand who was behind it. our ability to see through the they did it or what was behind it and whether it was terrorism required as first understand who did it. the search was conducted last night and interviews are being conducted today. of broadening understanding the shooting is going to be the part that brings the element forward. it will be laid out in those charging documents. that is kind of the processes behind your question. how do you get prepared to terrorism?
the amount of progress that was made in 24 hours between the and somehe intel team extraordinary work by the tens bureaueuro -- detective in terms of searching and then expanding that out in several circles. reporter: can you say a little about the explosion in seaside park? >> the question is about how do
we link that. we can do that through evidence and analysis and i cannot go further. >> a wide-ranging press conference in police plaza. federal officials discussing not only the bombings this weekend but also the height bomb blast. at least 29 people injured in new york city. also, the capture of a man who was called a person of interest. let us recap for you. we spoke to president obama that heis saying admired the resilience of the people in new york city.
thatalso told reporters they have every reason to believe that this was an act of terror. the mayor also said they world continue to be a strong and vigilant police present. also because of the un's general assembly gathering. the annual gathering that got underway today. william sweeney as the special agent in charge. said that more investigations are being conducted to understand the motives of the suspect identified as 28-year-old ahmad khan rahami. at a he was found sleeping bar in new jersey. you can see the exclusive video. he was wounded in an exchange of gunfire and authorities say one officer went over to him and he
pulled out a gun and shot the officer. he was saved by his bulletproof vest. the one officer who was wounded was taken to area hospitals. they are said to be in good condition. and says u.s. attorney that new york and new jersey prosecutors are not working against each other's and are looking for a careful presentation of the facts and charges. the special agent also said there is no indication that there is a terror cell and no information about a path to radicalization as far as he knows. he did not make any statements upon his capture. that sums up the press briefing that we just saw at one police plaza in new york city. bill de blasio is urging people
to remain vigilant even though a blasts in that weekend is in custody. he was shot and wounded by police. authorities say he is being treated by heavy guard in new york, new jersey. back over to you. scarlet: we did see the u.s. stock market take a couple of legs lower. if you come inside bloomberg 12:15 when we were talking about the lowered stocks. it has extended and we are off our section that you can see but we haveoff tricked into the negative range here. this is one of the big reasons why. big drag on markets. it is a huge piece of the nasdaq. let's take a look at the
imac here. but alsoee the losers the winners. telecom we saw down before. evenmer discretionary and staples have been moving lower throughout the day. we have financials as the but nowgainers overtaken by real estate. it is finally its own group today. training and apparently it has been recently taking ahead. with a going lower, we did not see a corresponding move. i bring this up because we have two big events this week. the federal reserve meeting and then the bank of japan meeting later on. the dollar has come off of its lows and is holding.
david: we are alive and bloomberg's world headquarters in new york this next hour plus california, washington, london, and beijing. speed today. the s&p showing a drop to the downside. what is driving that reversal? --hear from the ceo who will who will tell us why he is going more optimistic about business ofchina and the impact terrorism in the presidential --e, hillary clinton says while donald trump says a lack of profiling may be to blame. in about two hours and julie hyman has the latest. julie: we are seeing them come off of their highs for the day though bouncing on the lows. we do not know why ackley it is happening.
