welcome to bloomberg markets. we are covering stories from washington to geneva to riyadh. james gorman spoke and we would hear what he is -- what he has to say. tesla earnings out today, how they are expending -- extending beyond on is to become a clean energy company. donald trump has a two-point lead over hillary clinton in the swing state of florida. let's go to julie hyman. julie: things have looked up a little bit from this morning. we are seeing the dow up 53 points, the s&p little changed, and the nasdaq lower by one quarter of 1%. andnasdaq more tech heavy apple is helping to drag it down with its disappointing forecast. take a look at the sep -- s&p 500 over the course of the day.
12:01 pm
we are also seeing an interesting split today among a couple of groups. if you take a look at the biotech and transportation indexes, they are examples of what we are seeing. we are seeing this continuing rangers talks during this earnings season even before it is in the wake of the u.k. vote to exit the eu. since the s&p 500 closed at a record on august 18 we have been in that range. let's look at the two groups that are diverging, biotech and transportation. slightly.h index up transportation is up. on the biotech side, we are watching biogen and vertex.
12:02 pm
sales jump had been seen in inventory buildup for a new ms drug. they are looking for a ceo. vertex is rising after they said two are advancing experimental treatments for cystic fibrosis into mid-stage trials. still getting a bit of a bump up. side, transportation southwest airlines has been plunging, down 11% after revenues will be downs much as 5% in the last quarter. it fell 4% last quarter. the shares are getting hit i got. norfolk southern, the railroad company, beating estimates. railway operating expenses fell but it looks like it's revenue came in just about in line to slightly light of what analysts had been anticipating. vonnie: let's check in on the

bloomberg first word news with our crumpton. mark: a new bloomberg poll shows donald trump has a narrow lead in a state that is a must win for him, florida. toleads hillary clinton 49% 43% in a race where third-party candidates are included. trump is getting support from independent voters and his showing is stronger than other recent polls in the state. if trump wins all the states mitt romney one and also florida , he would need 35 more electoral college votes to win the election. secretary ash carter is ordering the pentagon to stop seeking the repayment of enlistment onus is from california national guard members who served overseas. his decision comes in the wake of an angry reaction from congress and the white house. president obama said congress is
12:04 pm
trying to nickel and dime them. the united states is expected to sustain -- abstain from the would pitions -- it the obama administration and you -- theinst -- you and general assembly vote is scheduled for today. the second game of the world series is being played in cleveland tonight, weather permitting. the forecast calls for rain so major league baseball decided to move up the start time by one hour. the indians beat the chicago cubs 6-0 in the opening game last night. batters in out eight the first inning and roberto perez hit a pair of home runs. global news 24 hours a day, powered by our 2600 journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries.
12:05 pm
i am mark crumpton. this is bloomberg. years it has been eight since the financial crisis erupted and since then the global economy has seen anemic growth. there has been a backlash against globalization and our next guest says we may be seeing a new low growth. michael spence joins us now. said aboutwhat was the prospects for global growth at 3.1%. you hear similarly bleak positions from the oecd and other groups. how do you process that and how long will this continue? michael: unfortunately, you mentioned i wrote about it. i think it is going to last for quite a long time unless there is a fairly significant change in the policy regimes.
12:06 pm
that would include europe getting itself organized and passed the brexit. in america it probably is less dependent on fixation on monetary policy and a little broader. you are as good as i am whether that will actually happen. of maximumeriod uncertainty because we do not know what will happen in the house and senate. japan has a struggle that is hard to understand. then you have a range of emerging economies that are improving somewhat. i am cautiously optimistic that china will pull through some of its challenges and continue the middle income transition, but the bottom line is there is lots of downside risk and it is very hard to see in the developed countries a likely scenario that puts us on a different track. vonnie: do you see any place where this might be a begin? -- be can?
12:07 pm
do you see any electorate that is about to elect a regime that will improve that situation? michael: not really. the citizens of the u.k. decided to leave the european union, and i think probably that is going to be a fairly costly decision. i hear that major financial and tuitions are basically planning to leave the city of london, which is pretty important. it is hard. challenge, renzi is being challenged on his constitutional reform. it is very hard to find something that looks like it is really on the fly. vonnie: central banks can only combat some of this and they have done as much as they possibly can. how do you combat what you are talking about, income inequality, slack in labor
12:08 pm
forces, youth unemployment that is ridiculously high? michael: you cannot do it overnight, for sure. the first thing you have to do is get people's expectations in line. you have a problem that has been neglected and you just cannot reverse it. assuming you can get past the sort of populist and nationalist politics and actually do something, i think you would have some element of redistribution of income and a whole lot of investment that is designed to accelerate the transition of the economy to a service-based economy that makes good use of the technology and so on, the things that michael bloomberg talked about yesterday. nobody, i think with any humility, will say there is a kind of plan and we know it is work and what the time horizon is. you can get a lot of people on both sides of the aisle to agree, i think, the first few steps are fairly obvious. let me give one example.
12:09 pm
in denmark, this comes from colleagues at the council on spent 2%elations, they of gdp reach raining people for an economy that is shifting around. we are at about .1%. a time when it is not a good idea to underinvested in anything. david: you mentioned monetary policy and it seems that we have legislative policy makers criticizing the federal reserve for doing too much and overstepping its bounds. now you have certainly policymakers from the federal reserve and other central banks criticizing legislators for not doing enough on the side of fiscal policy. how does that get sorted out? there is reasonable chance it will not get sorted out. mario draghi is the one who has gotten in trouble because he has
12:10 pm
been absolutely there is reasone chance it will not get sorted trouble because he has been absolutely explicit -- ben bernanke was too. we have a set of tools, it is not a complete toolset, and everybody has to do their job is the way mario draghi says it. when he says that he gets told to mind his own business because he is head of the central bank. as long as we approach it that basically going to have a reasonable chance of continuing on the same path. unless we have a crisis of some kind. things do change in a crisis and if we have a crisis that is economic or financial and it interacts with some kind of political upheaval, then i think we could change. it does not necessarily always turn out well but it looks an awful lot like things have to get worse before they get better. vonnie: janet yellen has said there is still slack in the labor force and she is not the only one. if you take in broader numbers of unemployment there is plenty of it. at one point do companies invest in services?
12:11 pm
at one point does the service economy become a place where you can be middle-class? michael: the thing that scares people the most is the forward-looking version of this because of the sheer power of the digital technology. it is already taken quite a lot out of the economy. we do not have as many bank tellers. it is a long list. i can remember when the general ledger of a company was kept by people who wrote things on a page. a friend of mine says, when we were young academics every you -- every pair of us had a secretary. a friend of minewe did not knowe needed help. now our department will have one or two administrators and everybody else is doing something else. when you take the forward-looking version of that, even if he sort of overestimate the speed with which it all happens, there is a real
12:12 pm
challenge in kind of figuring out how we are going to evolve, distribute income, and employ people and have more leisure. i think that is the best guest -- guess as to where we are going. david: what will be the legacy of the return of populism to the u.s.? you mentioned brexit and italy. how damaging is that going to be or how beneficial? michael: it is different in europe that america. in america, even though people fuss away about it, i think with a very long lag in dealing with basically inequality of the growth patterns we have been experiencing, the fact that it surfaced and has become salient politically does not guarantee a good thing. there is a solid core of people who are frustrated, angry, disappointed, and it is a lot better than suppressing it. on balance, even though it puts a slightly in uncharted
12:13 pm
territory, i think is a good thing. in europe where there is structural reforms the system required, it makes it much more difficult. the rise of populism, nationalism, and other things in that context may actually pushed in the direction of partially dismantling that system because they have not made it work. it is a partial union. somebody described it as a stool with one and a half legs, hamed el-erian. that is a pretty good analogy. david: thank you very much, professor michael spence at nyu. august,coming out in tesla ceo elon musk says it will be there last chance to show they can be cash flow wise and profitable. will they deliver? this is bloomberg. ♪

12:17 pm
.late they are building the giga factory in nevada and trying to acquire solar city so all of that undoubtedly requires a fair amount of capital, but musk says they are not going to need to raise money this quarter. david: i think back to the letter you got your hands on the elon musk wrote to his staff telling them to essentially move mountains before the model three hits production. what has been the ramifications and how will that filter into the earnings report? dana: today's earnings report is going to be a little different. tesla is changing the way they report non-gap revenue. clear whateally consensus is because people are still updating. it is probably going to be a more challenging report for investors to digest off the bat. the e-mail that bloomberg from late august said, we have got to sell every card that we can, and frankly they did.
12:18 pm
they had a record third quarter and sold 24,500 cars. it is not clear what their and operating expenses have been, and analysts will be looking at cash on hand. vonnie: we will be hearing about solar city i imagine. dana: the timeline is interesting. tesla reports earnings today and on friday night they will unveil a new solar roof rot act in los angeles -- roof product in los angeles. in november they will reveal more details about the proposed merger. shareholders vote on november 17. there are a lot of events between now and the 17th that could encourage investors to vote yay on the deal or convince naysayers they are right. david: we focused on the model three and getting that out on time. what is the status of the nevada

vonnie: you are watching bloomberg markets, i am vonnie quinn. david: i am david gura. a bloomberg politics poll shows donald trump has a narrow lead in a key swing state in florida, 45% to 43%. margaret talev is joining us from washington to talk about how important the sunshine state is to his chances of winning the white house. how much is he banking on florida? how important is it to him? margaret: florida is a must win state for donald trump. even if he wins florida it does not mean he gets to 270. he is still shy a handful of votes that both campaigns have
12:23 pm
predicted. a group to look at will be the independent vote in florida and the hispanic vote, which is two sort of components, the cuban-american hispanic vote around the miami area and the non-cuban hispanic vote in other areas like orlando and tampa that could be crucial to clinton's efforts to push him back. vonnie: why is he ribbon-cutting today and not campaigning? different than any other campaign you can imagine. we are within the two-week threshold and donald trump is an washington, d.c. at the formal opening of the trump hotel. you could say why is he taking his eye off the ball? he should be in florida. as antrying to use this example of what is unleashing
12:24 pm
america's greatest -- greatness, and it is the hottest property in town. his self-declared consolation prize. he is hoping to show that his opening acumen in hotels and running golf courses is an attribute that should give voters confidence in his ability to lead the country. be thethis has got to third event at that pesylvania avenue hotel. i have to ask you about a line saying that this is going to hinge on the independent vote. is that something that is specific to florida or is donald trump increasingly banking on independent votes? margaret: the independent vote is crucial in any state where it has the potential to be a close vote. president obama did really well with independent voters, hillary not doing as well, but turnout is crucial. they independent voters
12:25 pm
because they are truly independent or dialed back from the process and not committed to choose a party? it depends what an independent voter is and whether they can turnout. in florida you can say it is good for donald trump because he is ahead of clinton. on the other hand, this is a must win state for donald trump. you do not want to be two weeks out and within the margin of error. vonnie: is there a surprise still too, and what would be the exact day for it to come? margaret: what day is the october surprise coming? wikileaks seems to be the most fertile area for the surprises that what we have seen in recent days is these revelations that could have been damaging or hillary clinton during the primary season or in the ear weeks of the general election. trump has managed to step on many of these messages and distract from them himself. it is not only what will emerge

12:36 pm
that make long-term investments. not everyone is worried about quarterly earnings and saying that they cannot do something because they will not be around when the results come in. good companies have the courage to do that. they have the management to do that. i would argue that whether it is government or in the private sector, the ceo or whatever the title is -- i have always believed that they should combine the rules. i did not know what anyone would buy a company if they could not get that. it is an advantage. if you have a vision, you can take the risk. can bes your vision, it hard to get people on board, but if you say you are going to do it then you can be a hero if it turns out right. if it does not, then you get turned out. the life expectancy of ceos keeps going down. it is down not to about four or five years with pending on how you measure it. >> i am over my two days, only cap.

>> i think investors are waiting to see third-quarter results. we have just been sort of attacking sideways here for a number of months. we are expecting a breakout here over the next number of months. we are bullish mainly because of the internals of the market. a lot of market breath measures made high as much of a -- as much as a month ago -- a month ago. we'll talk about many months ahead of time. just because you had this broad action in the new highs in august and september, it does well for the market over the next several months. we do not have a lot of visibility behind that the on that time horizon. largely because of where valuations are. we still view them as quite high. we still think the market will get more expensive before it tops out in late b-17 or into 2018. david: so we are 4/5 of the way through the third quarter earnings season. what is the catalyst going to be here?
1:07 pm
can, what far as you you see as the potential catalyst to break out of this range? >> i think you will see better results out of the commodity oriented groups, energy, and materials. you put in a good solid low for commodity prices in the first quarter. they are up significantly. prices of the next several months, those results are a significant piece of what swings s&p earnings. it should have an impact. that and, i think we will continue to have just a sort of muddled through rate of economic growth. companies will deliver on the growth. vonnie: you are still saying about 2% which is high and in terms of investing in equities. why not keep more power -- powder dry? >> we are in an environment which i call "flyby instrument."
1:08 pm
we do not have a lot of conviction about the upside based on where valuations are. you look on other things beyond valuations such as investor sentiment, which i think right now is for the restraint -- but right now i think is pretty restrained. look at the economic environment. we think the rate environment will continue to be tamped down of the next several months. i think you will see a rate hike from the fed over the next nine months. not enough to really put pressure on equities. also, there is the action of the market itself. groups,e some cyclical and not all of them are dissipating. that leadership iturning to --place this defensive economically defensive leadership that has been dominating for several months ase electric and utilities
1:09 pm
well as consumer staples. some of those pompous surrogates have underperformed in the last three months. i think that is a positive for the market going forward. david: there are seasons to the earning season. away when youake look at the health and financials in particular? >> it is a tough environment with rates where they are. i think there are reasonable odds that you will see a steepening of the yield curve in 2017. maybe the 10 year bond yield toe from a dollar $.75 today $2.25 today or $2.50. i think that is what the financials are looking for in 2017. there is no doubt that the results right now are rather tough it investors are looking -- or rather tough. investors are looking forward to next year. david: -- vonnie: you seem to be waiting for something and what are you waiting for?
1:10 pm
>> it is a quantitative call. we have had almost a doubling of oil prices back in january. i am surprised we do a lot of work normalizing the earnings on that group. i suspect it is just that we have not quite seen the capital spending reduction that matches up with the whiteout we have had with oil prices. it was only three years ago that they were running at $105 $110. it is a bit of a mystery, because we like valuations, but we do for our client -- defer to our quantitative work. it has not turned up yet on energy. maybe in the next few months i do not know. david: apple is down on its earnings again this week. what does it tell us about the health of the markets when they report broadly speaking? >> what we have found in our analysis -- what is looking good right now is some things that chs away from the mainline te

the biggest of many characteristics with the millennials is just the approval. they will not make a decision about something to buy whether it is an item of clothing or a place to go and you do they have not checked with friends, check out the reviews online and then they will make a decision. there's not a lot of individualism going on. david: we always talk about millennials and housing. does that trend continue still ? >> goldman sachs is pointing to the huge potential that is there. they are starting to age. they are now into their early 30's. that is something they are starting to think about. there will be a lot of potential there. at the moment, it is still whether they are renting or whether some are still at home with mom and dad were living a way that is much more of this sharing economy ethos that

2:05 pm
u.s. equityief strategist was asked to reconcile these two calls. >> cutting is a modest reduction. raising $116 next year and $122 in 2018. that is your progression of earnings. the one increase next year, part of that is that energy companies will go from a loss to a slight gain. you are looking at core earnings growth of around 6%. that is modest earnings growth and the valuation on the market still around the low 80 percentile. modest upside for 12 months. even where crude is at and where it was last year, how is the market story for the broader index from here? david: it's one of the key issues for 2016. margins have peak.
2:06 pm
margins have been flat for the better part of five years. the key reason for margins increasing the last five years has been technology and apple in particular. it's been responsible for one third of the margin increase in u.s. equity market. tremendous growth in sales and tremendous growth in margins. through theing rearview mirror. looking forward, margins will likely come down. they will peak this year into next year. we are at a high level of margins and profitability and that will likely slow. your trajectory of profit growth as you look out over the next several years will be modest. environment is what drives were sales and you have modest margins commit meeting you have modest growth in earnings.
2:07 pm
david: how do you separate it from organic growth? topline growth, selling more stuff and making more money as opposed to friends of janet yellen, giving a lot of money for really cheap prices and buying back your stock. the way we think about is how to invest and tackle a market that is at this level of valuation and modest growth. the future is a barbell strategy. on the one hand, we are looking at income. not yield, but growth in the dividends. growth in dividends as a strategy. in the other stream, you want to look at topline growth. those are the strategies for outperforming the market that is difficult. with low volatility. on the dividend growth side, the market has totally mispriced dividend growth. , thethe last 50 years
2:08 pm
growth in dividends over a ten-year. has never -- over a 10 year --iod has never been below dividend growth is mispriced in the market. dividend growth will be about 4% on average over the next 10 years. it is mispriced in the market and there are some companies that we have a bloomberg basket that we trade that has a long track record about performance. better growth in the dividends is a key aspect. where are you getting your best topline revenue growth? you go from your one to your year one toee -- year two to year three. revenue growth
2:09 pm
and the other is sales growth. not giving you a lot of risk reward. growth the dividend story, a lot of people ask, how does the rate story and form -- inform my view of the bond proxies? we are is the dividend growth story being underestimated? want to go long dividend growth and short the market. have that as no basis risk. you can find it in every sector. hdig -- you have 6% growth in the next year. 2% over the next decade. these stocks have 12% dividend growth. that is what you want in a yield start market.

covering aig for us. a quick let's get snapshot of some polls. in florida, there is a new bloomberg politics poll that puts donald trump on top of hillary clinton int by two points in a four-way race. voters aged 18-29 are overwhelmingly backing clinton. third-party candidates faring better among younger voters. joining us now is ben brody. other polls showed clinton was in the lead. is this an outlier? ben: it's difficult to know exactly what is an outlier until the voting comes down. certainly this suggests a trump lead we have not seen in other polls. our poll screens work on likely voters and how we determine who
2:45 pm
is likely and who is not. it's different from what others do. we've seen more voters saying they will turn out as a look some other polling companies. this certainly underscores the path to a trump victory which is a narrow and quickly narrowing one. that goes through florida. it's a little unclear whether or not it will bear out or if the race could shift in the next 13 days. matt: don't you see trends in the ways things happen leading up to an election? that is the kind of thing that can drive supporters out. if you can go to your supporters and say, look, this is a close ball. oll. a close p if you look at the preponderance of polls at this point, you
2:46 pm
would still conclude that hillary clinton has a small edge. we had heard two points behind the poll average -- clinton is trailing donald trump by two points in a four-way race. is that the way it will appear on the ballot in florida? ben: yes. we will be seeing a four-way race. we are seeing a two-way race even in a two-person race. those things are both two-point races. is it hillary clinton's birthday today? ,ssue out there telling people look, you've got to get out and vote for me, you cannot just sit back because you think nationwide we are going to win. each state is important. ben: exactly. she is hitting the battleground

2:48 pm
nothing of the case that it may confusion about when you hold your last event. they are saying they are all in an full steam ahead. poll showsother millennials are now backing hillary clinton. is that a result of her surrogates going out and campaigning on her behalf? ben: it's hard to know exactly needle on these things. a lot of them remained uncommitted for a lot longer than some other groups. it's possible that they are just coming home. certainly young people are a key part of the obama coalition. he appeals to young people. he is social media savvy, considered by a lot of people to be cool. when he goes out, it certainly does help to bring people along.

carol: it is very creative. we were thinking about this, a lot of people thinking, man -- it sounds like they are going after apple's market. is that what it is all about? i know the president was talking about the company for makers and creators, is this a big change for you guys and are you going after apple's market? yusef: it is a bigger theme. going back to 10 years ago, it was about information. it then next big challenge is to from consumers to creators. this is a goal for the company across everything we do, the software, devices, windows and office. this is the right time. part of it is because we are going into virtual reality and a mixed reality were the 3-d objects in learning can become possible. carol: is that a yes or a no? yusef: it is not about apple.

it is about helping other people. when i grew up it was 2-d on paper. today i go see kids and they are in 3-d worlds that would blow your mind. and they do not think twice about it. it is how they do it. carol: how they are growingp. corey: do you look forward and to see a market with people growing up with a world of minecraft where they create 3-d, is the current addressable market bigger than it was five years ago and it is now a better market? yusef: two things, there is a core set of professionals in we are going after that with the new surface studio device that we announced today. the other point you made, we want to make everybody a creator. the notion today is it that there could be if you. her's that everybody -- creators that makes what you watch, but
3:23 pm
we want everybody to be a creator. cory: my nine-year-old does minecraft and it is mind blowing and it is this immersive thing. but from a, that is what i was doing with -- for me, that is what i was doing with legos, using building blocks to create something amazing. yusef: another thing that will blow your mind. take your computer and design something in 3-d. take that and say you will turn into a hologram and drop it into the real world. we put it into a hologram so we can see it in 3-d. then i will print it in 3-d and put it into the physical world. so you can do that now where you can actually take a photo, edit it and bring it back into the real world. that is the world we live in. it will be possible because of windows 10. carol: how quickly do you see people ramping up to this world? it is out there but not everybody is on it.
3:24 pm
yusef: you are right. we were excited about the announcement today, we are going to put this example into the hands of 4 million people this spring. it will be that easy. you will be able to scan with the windows 10 device and put it into any object. or just pulled it up and edit and create in 3-d. amazing stuff. and to have the computing power to do it on the front and where you do not have it before. yusef: right. the biggest new device is the surface studio. it is a couple of things. number one, it is the device you can turn your desktop into a creative studio. megapixels, that is 62% more than your tv. and you can fold it down and then with two hands you can create. we have a surface dial mechanism. carol: we have to run.
