5:03 pm
look at the quarter overall, it is rarely mixed. the one negative was the iphone numbers. but it's one of those quarters where you can only put so much emphasis on the iphone. you of course have the major launch later this year, and we think the entire myth here can be attributed to the fact that consumers are holding off for the next generation iphone device. overall, you are seeing a little hint on the stock rice, but it is something we would look past. emily: i spoke with apple cfo luca maestri who spoke of channel inventory, based out of 1.2 million iphones worth of inventory, which brings the number slightly up. david, what is your take? >> if i understand correctly, the sales outside of china actually grew. cook said it is because they were seeing anticipation of future product being a problem.
5:04 pm
it's amazing to me how in china they are even more status conscious and technology conscious than any other part of the world almost, and they love but i take a big picture view. this is not that big of a deal. if the company can make them move to services and software, which is the shift they have to month --ove the multiple up, they will have a wonderful future. i do think they will come out with a great phone in the fall. emily: let's talk about china and we saw a 14% year-over-year decline in china. maestri, and he played up the positive signs in china. the iphone 7 was the best-selling smartphone in china . the iphone 7 plus was also doing well, services hitting an all-time record, max business growing double digits. he also expects performance to improve over the fiscal year in

china. the second half of last year, they saw a greater decline than they seen so far in this first half of this year. top to us about what's happening in china and whether or not you are concerned. >> when it comes to china, consumers are of course a lot more price sensitive. i think you have a lot more options coming out of china, given the emergence of many device manufacturers in the region.ina that being said, when you look at how apple has recently performed in the mainland region, they have actually done very well. it is immoral on the other areas of greater china like taiwan, among other areas, that has taken a hit for apple. but overall, when you look at the segment, at least it is performing better than it did earlier last year. that is positive. we do think that business starts returning to growth as you progress later into the year and start seeing aesthetic changes to the next generation device.
5:06 pm
emily: overall, you are also seeing a greater shift to the larger sized iphone. you pointed out this is the first time they have a dramatically updated feature in the camera. this means that average selling price of the iphone is going up. i want to talk about what's going on with capital. they boosted the capital return program, but there's speculation about whether or not apple will bring cash back to the united states. $257 billion apple has in cash overseas. they said they question about what's going on with the trump whether or not that will impact apple. what are your thoughts on this, david? amazed thate to be a company could be this big, this profitable, and have like they have. i think they will need to be seen as patriotic.if there's a chance to bring money back , they will do that.
5:07 pm
to me, the real -- i would go back to what i said before. if i was an investor in apple and i know some analysts have recently been talking about this, can they shift to be seen as more than just a device maker? their multiple is so low compared to facebook and google, that somehow they have to find a way to change that. they don't even need to make very big of a difference for their stockholders to see an fromdible increase even this astonishing $750 billion market cap. they will bring money back. have $250 billion to play with is astonishing, but the bigger questions are longer-term. emily: we did ask luca maestri whether they have laid the groundwork or are planning to bring cash back depending on what happens with legislation.he said it is not something to speculate on right now because it depends on
5:08 pm
the details of what might get connected. we do a lot of scenario planning, but there's nothing to announce today. any closing thoughts? >> i think when you look at the numbers overall, we remain very optimistic on the shares. services growth of 18%, right in line with what we expected, continuing to run in line of the duckling potential over the next four years. -- doubling potential over the next four years. apple continues to expand outside of the iphone revenue stream, and i think that's an enormous positive. emily: angelo zino, i will let you get back on the apple earnings call. it just started. tim cook is speaking. at cfra,no, analyst and david is sticking with me. first quarter results coming in better than expected, but the online marketplace is announcing a major josh

5:22 pm
it has been going on for quite some one of the reasons president trump was able to become president, capturing this notion of something gone awry with the american workforce. infosys is a principal offender. people in the far right media are calling them out as a company stealing american jobs it's no accident. . with 10,000 people being hired in hubs, especially in indiana, that is a place where president trump won and vice president pence health from. they want to make -- hails from. they want to make a mark for that reason. emily: i know you are looking at the numbers at other companies affected by the policy changes. cory: outsourcing firms are big consumers of h-1b visas. there are bigger known companies like intel and apple. the biggest consumers are outsourcing firms. we have a graph to demonstrate how these firms are among the biggest consumers of the h-1b visas. emily: what jobs are they doing?
5:23 pm
cory: all caps of jobs. but there's a concern that jobs are replaceable. there's concerned that they are not unique jobs. when you have companies you can thatrom tata, infosys, these are the kinds of jobs, like tech support jobs, they are not inventing the next driverless car or optical semiconductor but it is a support and of job, filling the h-1b visas. i think this is seen as an announcement for announcements sake. emily: david, i know you are thinking about this. >> i think corey is right. as a political move, but it is justifiable. this program has been abused. this is in one where donald trump has it right. trump't one where donald has it right. these companies are bringing in people and paying less than american jobs. somethingorkers make
5:24 pm
like $50,000 a year more on average than indian outsourcing firms. even if you are coming in from other countries, 70% of workers are coming from india, even under those circumstances, you will make a lot more working for an american company. indian companies have a perception problem they have to address. it doesn't surprise me in the slightest. emily: how competitive is h-1b visa program? enormously competitive. there are more applicants than there are spots available. it is a way for some of these people to get green cards and be in the country. who followedds that route. we have bloomberg intelligence analysts who have done that. fundamentally, what we might expect this changes in the h-1b program to fix these problems and the problems of workers getting paid less, coming here and being stuck with these jobs. it's not a way to a better
5:25 pm
life or for america to continue to lead in technology. emily: this is something mark zuckerberg has personally taken on, trying to get more "skilled workers" into the u.s. how does this affect facebook or google? >> it doesn't directly affect them that much, but i think what will affect them is if we can find a way to open up the doors to allow more people to come in and do a variety of jobs that are needed with fewer restrictions, while still being able to protect american jobs. that is a tough balancing act. all the big tech companies absolutely feel they would benefit and the american economy would therefore benefit, if they could bring in more people from outside the u.s. this program was not so severely restricted. every time someone graduates from stanford, they should staple a green card to

5:50 pm
efficient that you have fewer of them in industry, let me be talking a lot about the roles that go into shipping and logistics, or taxi drivers. at the same time, as soon as you make one of those industries more efficient, consumption increases of the services, which creates ancillary and adjacent markets that see an increase in jobs. the question is, if we can make things like shipping and logistics more efficient because it costs less, maybe you bring in a been more manufacturing into america, because the isivering speeds of services so vast that we want to manufacture things as close to the buyer as possible. that create a new set of jobs in the manufacturing industry. we have to look across the whole system as opposed to the individual job that will be replaced or displaced. reporter: you have been very vocal in your opposition against donald trump and his policies before and after the election.
