10:11 am
it may not be the same as we have today. it will continue to play a role in the future. the reality is the assumption is always that growth is going to go somewhere else in europe. some of it may also go back to the u.s. or go to asia. francine: you said recently that ubs is ready to expand during any turmoil in the market. sergio: there is a level of complacency around the numbers macro themes we are facing and the geopolitical risks we are facing.

uts are searching this year. dust but because of m&a activity in their various industries. more of a a bit pickup of etf activity recently in various areas. we talked about the c.t.s. before, but not with regards to m&a activity, necessarily. social media is one of them. >> this one made a name for itself when facebook went public. it is up 41% since march. it held linkedin when microsoft bought it. the big in t ones -- twitter went down recently, but for a wild, that was a big contributor. it has yelp and pandora.
10:24 am
uts typically will go out and have bigger weightings for smaller names -- etf's typically will go out and have bigger weightings for smaller names. this thing is volatile. it can go down just as fast as it goes up what an interesting alternative purpose for these cute sounding etf's. if snapchat ends up having his ipo, that could go into an etf like this. are designed to get them within a week or two. it would take a tech etf a year or two. these are very liberal. julie: buyer beware because of that volatility we talked about. , the 3-ding etf printers which do tend to have some pretty crazy swings.

2014. global news 24 hours a day powered by more than 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. this is bloomberg. david: the u.s. economy added 156,000 jobs in september, fewer than estimated. the employment rose to 5% and the participation rate at a six-month high. >> we have another solid report that shows both steady job growth and wage growth. you look at the wage growth over the business cycle, better than any business cycle we have seen since the 1980's. david: what does this mean for the data dependent fed? joining us is betsey stevenson. professor at the university of michigan. we have heard this referred to as a goldilocks jobs report.
10:33 am
your reaction on twitter showcases long, steady job growth. give us your reaction, first of all. >> i think this was a solid jobs report. in theber of jobs added payroll survey was a little below what people were expecting, but if you take a look at the household survey, looks like things are also going gang busters. like to put both those surveys together. when you do that, it looks like we're right on target. if you take a long-term view over the last six months, we have had job growth of 192,000 jobs a month. it has been a remarkable come along comest to -- slow, steady job growth, pulling people act the labor force who have been out and reducing the long-term unemployed rate. we are now less than one quarter of the overall unemployed and it has been a long, long time since they have been such a small fraction of the unemployed. david: help us understand the
10:34 am
importance of this report, put into context. there is political factors and the importance the fed ways what it is going to do in november. >> the challenge for the fed is to think about how much slack there is in the labor market. if businesses want to keep adding roughly 200,000 jobs a month, are they going to be up to find people who want them -- those jobs? so far the answer has been yes. we have been getting people off the sidelines who have not been participating in the labor force, and they have been showing up for these jobs that businesses are creating. that is what we need. the fed does not want to choke that off. the fed gets concerned if businesses want to keep hiring 200,000 workers per month and there are not the workers there for it, what is going to happen is they start bidding and fighting over each other for the remaining workers and that is what causes our inflationary pressure. the question is, how much slack is there?
10:35 am
we've never really seen this coming situation before where the slack is coming from people who are not in the labor force. we are not seeing the unemployment rate getting pushed further and further down. are people seeing responding to the increased job growth by entering the labor force. as long as i continues, then the fed once to allow that to continue, but that is a tough call for them in terms of how much farther connect go. how many more people are willing to come into the labor force. nejra: i just want to ask you about wages showing less of a pickup them projected. what does this mean for inflation prospects and also what the fed might do? again, we have seen some pretty strong, steady wage growth, but not to the point where the fed needs to be concerned that what we're seeing is inflationary pressure in wages. that is the goldilocks you referred to. what the fed wants to see is that the labor market is moving along, but not -- not
10:36 am
inflationary pressure coming from firms having to compete with each other for a small pool of workers. nejra: i have a chart. --ickly, what it is showing basically, showing the two-year treasury yields versus the odds of a 2016 fed hike. we continue to see the odds rise of a hike in december, but the two year treasury yield come off a little right now, also a little bit of a weaker dollar. whitey you think we are saying dot market reaction -- why you think we're seeing that market reaction? -- not, you know, having being able to see the data, i don't want to speculate on the market reaction. thell tell you, you heard cleveland fed president come out this morning and say this report said to her in this still time to raise rates. i think there is a light a speculation about whether or not the fed should raise rates.
10:37 am
frankly, what we're seeing between the employment reports and the gdp reports are somewhat different stories. we has in the first half of this year economic growth has decelerated. that is slowing. in gdp growth, we usually see a slowingre we see the and hiring. the last segment fed wants to do is be the cause of the slowdown in hiring, so they need to be paying attention to not just what is happening in the labor market, but what is happening on the gdp side of the aisle. david: looking at these data, i wonder what we learned today about where americans are the types of americans looking for work will stop i know underemployment was at 9.7% and held there. what do we learn today? mean, i think this report looks good for everybody. if we are looking at one month -- we should look overall at the economy. what we see in the economy is things are working really well for high skilled workers and not
10:38 am
working as well for lower skilled workers. those are the ones who have high and a planet rates and also have low participation rates. they're having low-wage games. -- gains. college students right now have the highest premium in terms of higher wages compared to people deskout of college degree without a college degree than they have had in a very long time. that is the good news, we should give people skills. the bad news is, people who don't have skills are being left behind. so people who are lower skilled workers with less training, less education. david: i am curious about the energy sector. oil hovering around $50 a barrel. talks of u.s. company is investing and more production in the u.s. looking ahead to the next couple of reports, will receive growth going forward? -- will we see growth going forward? >> in the energy sectioor
10:39 am
recently, it responds quickly. when they do not need workers any longer, they're not holding on to them. they are able to shed them quickly. when they need them, they will hire them quickly. that is something to be looking towards in the next couple of reports. betsey stevenson joining us from ann arbor. thank you. nejra: coming up, a lackluster public debut for shares of entergy. company'sar from the ceo. this is bloomberg.

10:44 am
market. the market is stable on that level. we are not disappointing any of our first investors. are you expecting them to sell off more after the six-month lockup? >> yes, but not immediately. rwe has a lot of provisions with a very long maturity. therefore, shares like innogy are there most superb financial flexibility, years if not decades to come. i think it is good for rwe and for innogy. having one stable shareholder for a company of such a size is a comfortable position to be in. caroline: it is interesting you are waving goodbye to that company. is it a shrinking business model? is this the future? >> no. we have made a lot of promises to the capital market, to the shareholders, to the investors. it was me making those promises. i think this fair to deliver
10:45 am
upon that. i can't do that as the coo ofinnogy. fulfill theews to obligations -- somebody needs to fulfill the obligation's will stop caroline: i was looking -- how would that look in terms of strength of the business? >> first of all, it is a very stable investment grading company by perspective. e, long as we are part of rw we will not immediately get an independent rating. we will ask a survey rating company to do so. by the way, more than a rating agency, already looking through this because the valuation of is a radio must on a standalone basis. caroline: how difficult has it been drumming up investor support? as the deutsche bank story been in any way a hit on your own
10:46 am
shares? >> not really a hit. we had a bit of exciting moments . the deutsche bank was a minor one for us. the whole quantitative easing discussion that we have had in the middle of this week certainly was something that impacts companies like innogy. that was the case, but we see most of the investors, specifically long many in the u.k. and america, looking for long-term investment so it is not the emotions of the day that determine this and it was more of the long-term business case which impressed him. caroline: are you worried about deutsche bank? >> me personally, i think a society like germany needs a stable german or maybe even european based bank. deutsche bank, it could be put up for, but really for the finance market, but all of the
10:47 am
german industry that does not have a local player to help them. -- line: the report is havedon't think investors given us money to invest in deutsche bank, but in our renewables. i'm pretty sure those investors that want to pay good money on deutsche bank can do it directly. we have a very good relationship , banking relationship of deutsche bank. i think at this moment, deutsche bank needs stable customers and stable partners. ceo.: that wasinnogy david: still ahead, the conversation of deutsche bank continues. share seven cut in half. the company is considering a share sale to raise money for its mounting legal bills. this is bloomberg. ♪

10:51 am
newspaper. ruth david covers the european banks for bloomberg. she joins us now. how much capital are we talking about and what does the amount depend on? >> can raise about 5 billion euros without getting approval. they have preapproval that could be about 5 billion. which is 50% of the market cap and then if you take a discount, a typical discount for these kinds of sales, the same amount i can go with immediately if to thent to write up fines. they want to anything until they knew the full extent of the fines. as someone said, you don't raise money to give money away. the want to be sure what fines are, how much they're going to pay before they go out and do anything. investment banks are pitching to them and their conversations going on with investors, how
10:52 am
they feel, maybe look at getting anchor investors. if they do it be deal, the hourly have investors -- they are ready have investors. you mentionesting the anchor investors. we heard reports of other german companies almost stepping in to deutsche bank's aid. what are the banks options, perhaps even the best options to raise capital? >> they have their asset management business. the analyst numbers are about 9.5 billion. they could look at listing a stake in that. john cryan says he does not want to sell it. if they listed, they can raise 2 billion to 3 billion from it. they can still say they own a majority stake in this. you have seen other banks across europe, last or you saw societe generale do that. this is not a new method. some ideas are doing well in
10:53 am
this market. foring at maybe an ipo another one of their businesses. david: given the last few weeks, how long can john cryan's insistence it not be put up for sale? is he facing more enthusiasm than before? >> he is. marketsinvestors in the are waiting to know what is the full extent of the fines. whether you're talking about big anchor investors coming in and putting money there or you are talking about shareholders saying you need to do something, i think they are all waiting. but while this is going on, you're having the top investment banks on wall street pitch to them a range of solutions. in deutsche bank ratio, 11.2%, so they want to know how much of a hit they're going to take on these fines whether it is in russia or the u.s. before they do anything. they are lining up a bunch of
10:54 am
options, is our understanding. david: i'm curious about the timetable. john cryan has laid out this five-year plan. the newspaper reporting he may meet with the doj while in town. is this accelerating his plan to restructure the business? how much is he having to scrap the plan he put in place? >> i am not so sure it is accelerating as much as it is ensuring they are implement -- implementing it. deutsche bank stock has fallen about half this year, have -- it is half the price. they are talking about fines. there's a lot of sense of you don't know what the extent of it is and is this affect the investment banking business. he wants to ensure he is making the right noises, telling investors it's fine, meeting with the regulators, with the government, and trying to ensure it is business as usual at deutsche bank. nejra: how with her troubles affect the rest of the investment banking business?
10:55 am
anyone tried to capitalize on it? >> we saw the german bank, commerzbank, have cheeky adds saying they're the only deutsche bank in town. so you are seeing some of that. of course, i guessing investment banks pitching for business might be making the case because deutsche bank is going through problems, maybe they cannot extend as much balance sheet support, so you should be going with us. that is a bit behind the scenes. we're not saying that so much publicly yet. your jamie dimon saying he thought that deutsche bank would whether it's troubles. what they're saying and pitch meetings, sure. but not publicly. nejra: i've seen those adverts. thank you so much. coming up on the european close, we will dig deeper into what we know about today's flash crash in sterling. what else is driving the selling frenzy this week?
