emily: i am emily chang, this is "bloomberg technology." fake news take center stage in france, with the presidential election days away. how big tech is mobilizing to prevent viral misinformation from influencing the vote. plus, after an earnings bonanza with apple and facebook leading the charge, we break down the latest headlines of this week in tech. free original content courtesy of youtube. the video giant's big bet on celebrity-driven shows. the nasdaq and s&p 500 closed at new, all-time highs. u.s. stocks rose for the third straight week. abigail doolittle joins us now from new york. what happened in this session in tech stocks in the week in general? >> today we started off, relatively lackluster session, and on the close, both the nasdaq and s&p 500 finishing at record highs.
11:03 pm
a lot of this has to do with tech, the best-performing sector of the week, relative to the best stocks for the nasdaq. it helped of the nasdaq rise of third week in a row. some of the best weeks since november of last year. they posted a solid march quarter, beating estimates by 1.5%. there drug numbers were good enough. that stock went up quite nicely on those results. another winner, a software company. they are saying some of the bidders, could include bain and carlyle. they have a $23 billion market cap. they may not choose to sell themselves that all three of but it shot up higher on the week around as big investors.
11:04 pm
the possibility they may by cit rix. and analyst said it has to do with a report out of europe suggesting demand for travel is very strong. interesting, on the day the stocks were down as hotels say they will fight the monopoly these two online travel agencies have formed. it'll be interesting to see how that lays out. emily: we saw moves on the back of apple earnings, where did we end up? abigail: another record for apple. they put up a march quarter that was disappointing. they beat on earnings, missed on revenues. they are getting a pass on iphone 8 super cycle. we are waiting to see. that is where the pressure is for the back half of the year. if we hop into the bloomberg and take a look, this is a longer-term chart. back in 2012 and 2013, the stock
11:05 pm
plunged in a big way. that was around disappointment for the iphone 5. then it shot up in a huge way. the disappointment was on the iphone 6s. the iphone 7 has been stronger. everyone is looking forward to the iphone 8. if you look at the move up between the blue lines, we could see choppiness. the technicals here are mainly pretty solid. let's rounded out with netflix. netflix did trade higher on the week, having its best week, up a second week in a row. gaining on that baidu deal, their entry into china. netflix could potentially be bought by apple with that huge apple cash pile of more than $250 billion. microsoft and intel were among the bed -- best stocks for the nasdaq.
11:06 pm
microsoft released a $999 laptop with an intel chip inside. tech was the best sector on the week come a really helping the nasdaq. emily: abigail doolittle in new york, thank you so much for that update. as she mentioned, a lot of earnings report cards over the past couple weeks from the biggest tech companies, apple alphabet, microsoft amazon. the majority have beat on revenue and earnings. what is the mean for the health of tech stocks, can they keep it up? joining me, tom, great to have you here. can tech stocks keep up with this optimism? tom: the optimism is real, the big changes happening in the ecosystem are these moves to the cloud.
11:07 pm
anytime you see 50% growth year over year in the u.s., large enterprises starting to move, that drives operating income and growth. emily: so it is worth it? tom: in the private markets we see a version, when you had me on the show 18 months ago, the private market valuation, the same company in the private markets was twice what it was in the public. that is no longer the case. emily: you talked about a spike in venture debt. why is that a trend? tomasz: one way is to raise equity dollars. they invest dollars to buy shares and that dilutes the company. we by 25% of the company. but there is a recent trend where companies borrow. it is happening more and more and growing faster than equity investment. that is because this kind of financing is non-diluting for founders. as companies stay private longer
11:08 pm
and longer, like uber, 10 years before they go public. instead of raising that pre-ipo round, they raise about $2 billion a day. emily: when you talk about private companies reverting to the mean, are and airbnb an exception? tomasz: they are. emily: are they the only exception? tomasz: no. what i mean by reverting to the mean, exceptional companies will command exceptional prices. two were year -- two or three years ago many were demanding exceptional prices. the middle class of companies are not growing as fast, are not as iconic. the price of those companies is lowering. emily: is it a reckoning? tomasz: no, a slow correction, not as dramatic as 2000. emily: jobs report added.
11:09 pm
you have the chairman of alphabet say he does not think robots will take all our jobs. he said, i will not take the position because no one knows the answer. well we have a tremendous dislocation and jobs, i am not denying that in aggregate, there will be more jobs. you agree with him? tomasz: when the first dishwashers came out, it was the first robot in the house. people were terrified dishwashers and businesses would be out of a job. but we still have half a million people with that job. i was on a panel with the chairman and tesla. there are as many people employed per car produced in the tesla factory as in any other factory in america. what ends up happening with machine running automation, it is not that we have fewer jobs read but that humans do changes.
11:10 pm
we focus on more interesting, cerebral work, as opposed to more manual. emily: let's talk about self driving cars, uber and alphabet are in the middle of a lawsuit over whether or not technology, i.t. was stolen. if self driving cars are a success, what is the mean for these people who have been building cars in the first place? and driving them? tomasz: there are five stages of automation. we will not get to that in 15 years. emily: we will still have to have steering wheels. tomasz: or companies that offer to drive trucks with remote controls, like we drive drones in the military today. it will be another 15 to 25 years.
11:11 pm
the idea is that during that time, people will be able to learn new skills and still be employed. it is not a discontinuity where tomorrow, 19 million cars sold in the u.s. each year will suddenly become a fully automated and everyone will be without a job. it is a much more gradual change. emily: what are the new skills? tomasz: imagine driving eight trucks at the same time instead of one. the gig economy is fragmenting labor. one thing we are pursuing inside our firm is a new forms of education. more vocational education. what those skills are going to be is still to be determined. we are hopeful that as we invest and build the next generation of educational institutions, people will be ready. emily: if automation is a trend, private companies are reverting to the mean, where you see the most potential? what you putting your bets on? tomasz: machine learning and
11:12 pm
artificial intelligence. we have been working on speak recognition. we believe speech recognition is the new form of human-computer interaction. you can speak three times faster than you can type. it is more convenient to speak to a computer. another big area of focus is machine translation, wondering which to another. computers can do that better than humans. we are continuing to look for investments in that kind of way. emily: you are here a year ago. what it will be -- what will we be talking about a year from now? tomasz: very big ipo's. we have seen nine companies go public through may. at a two-time space since last year. emily: uber and airbnb, most things point to those being two years out. tomasz: at some point, they will go out. you still have interest.
11:13 pm
if the recent markets have shown that there is a lot of appetite for high-growth technology companies, the average gain is 35%. the doors are open, so lots of companies will be going out at the same time. emily: thank you so much for joining us, great to have you. coming up, is warren buffett saying bye-bye to big blue? why the investor is cutting his stake in ibm. bloomberg tech's live streaming on twitter weekdays 5:00 p.m. in new york. this is bloomberg. ♪

11:15 pm
11:16 pm
emily: ahead of its annual shareholder meeting, berkshire hathaway's ceo announced he would be -- ceo warren buffett announced he would be tricking his influence. one point trading at its lowest level since november. for more i bring in cory johnson in new york. what is your read on this? cory: the fundamentals of ibm are not the kind he likes. he is not afraid to step into a business to turn around and make progress. if you look at ibm's progress -- his first purchase was of a lower-level. he bought a lot of stock when it was at its all-time highs in 2012 and 2013. it has been a money losing position for warren buffett, a difficult one. the corporate results reflect a
11:17 pm
business that is contracting, not growing, which is what buffett wants. emily: how much has he lost? cory: we do not know what he has paid for the stake itself. fundamentally, it is a reflection of ibm's business. if you look at the sales figures, they have been drinking every year. they wanted to grow the bottom line. but if you look at the even audit growth, there is not been any. it has been falling 5%, 7%, 11%. it is not only getting worse, but worse faster. that is a great concern and not the type of business he wants to be involved in. emily: buffett said in the past he does not understand technology. he has a stake in apple but does
11:18 pm
not own an iphone. in fact, he has a flip phone and is quite happy with it. does this prove maybe he should not be investing in a sector he does not understand? cory: really what he does not understand is the valuation of tech stocks. stocks that are valued on what they have yet to do as opposed to what they have been doing. the intrinsic value and the free cash flow generation from the business is always at the cone. i have been covering technology so long, it is hard to believe companies that have not done anything yet. it is hard to do it venture capitalists do. he is trying to discount future cash flows. there was a clue however that it was not his kind of company. when the annual letter comes out from berkshire hathaway, i have gone to to a quiet room on a
11:19 pm
saturday morning to go through the letter. i got to a section where he talks about the kind of businesses he likes and is not. i think we have the exact text of the letter available. he talks about how he and charlie look at the stock market. charlie and i cringe when we hear analysts talk about managers that make the numbers. business is too unpredictable for the numbers to always be met. ibm always makes its adjusted number. they talk about that in press releases to journalists. but the stock tends to suffer because they focus on making adjusted numbers, not making the business any better. that was the clue that warren
11:20 pm
buffett had given up on ibm. emily: cory, our bloomberg editor at large in new york, thank you. coming up, youtube betting big on original content to round up ad dollars. we bring you the latest from los angeles. this weekend we bring you our best interviews from the week. tune in this saturday for the best of bloomberg tech. this is bloomberg. ♪

dozen original series available for free on the world's most popular video website. the alphabet-owned company hopes to attract viewers and advertisers. here with more on the expansion plans. what do you make on the reality is succeeds? >> my first take was, oh no, more tv. my friend said the handmade scale is great. but now i have to subscribe to hulu, too. but they invented video on the internet. we're seeing a huge push by them in the last year or so. they have 35 channels coming out, a typical cable-like bundle they are offering. you have youtube red with original programming for $10 a month. some you will be able to watch for free. it is a big push to captures some of those original programs.
11:24 pm
in the big picture, google crushed print advertising and this is their chance to bring analytics to the tv world and get that revenue. emily: i interviewed the youtube ceo toward the end of last year and asked her about her vision for the future. she said she imagines the youtube will be a platform for all of these different media companies. take a listen. >> if you fast forward 10 years, you will see a new generation of media companies that have strong followings, are able to create amazing content. it will be global, they will interact with their fans in all sorts of amazing ways. i am looking forward to being part of that.
11:25 pm
emily: we know anything about the numbers? can youtube or is youtube competing with netflix, hulu, amazon? can they give them a run for their money? chris: no doubt about it. these online video companies are promoting their wares. a lot of amazing technology, targeted advertising, tracking every single viewer. we see a dramatic turnaround even for youtube. just a month or so ago, big advertisers were canceling. there was controversy, they did not want their ads placed next to beheading videos. now johnson & johnson, is now an advertiser for a big youtube show. they are embracing online advertising. with all this spending, you will see viewers. emily: how is it different from what you to have done in the past? chris: they had a push five years ago to produce $100 million to produce original content.

this time there is an effort to create content with people that have both online followings and traditional followings. ellen degeneres, for example. a lot of this is timing. this is the tipping point this year for online tv. emily: comedian kevin hart, a lead -- ellen degeneres, others will be producing these scripted shows. you will be charged and watching all the new original content out there. thank you so much. coming up, we bring you the top tech headlines of the week, including the possible criminal probe into uber. if you like bloomberg news check us out on the radio and sirius xm. this is bloomberg. ♪ the show's about to start! how do i look?

emily: ahead of the french presidential election this sunday, there is widespread anxiety that fake news could sway the vote. have bigger problem is this for france? what is being done to combat it ahead of the election? we are joined from new york by the ceo of news whip. with me in san francisco is sarah frier. paul, i want to start with you. we have seen a report that the links shared on social networks and france around the election are fake news. is that accurate? paul: that is reasonably accurate. there is a fake news problem without any doubt, but what we like to do is try to quantify how about the problem is.
11:44 pm
when we are talking about fake news, we are talking about the stories that are out now and very partisan reporting. so, a lot of websites specialize in doing that. when we looked at data from the last two months leading up to the french presidential election, we see they can news is a problem, but not a huge problem. the most top 200 shared stories -- 20 of those are the partisan-type sites. 72 out of the top 200 stories last year were fake. almost 40% of the stories were fake in that instance third but only 20% and the -- in that instance, but only 20% in the french instance. emily: but you don't want any of the news stories you read to be fake. what is facebook doing about this? what is twitter and google doing
11:45 pm
about this? they have one big lesson under their belt. sara: the first thing they did since november was it meant that they had a problem, right? they saw it happening and there was his public uproar. then they decided, we have to tackle this problem, but we don't know exactly how. there is a mix of solutions they are trying to figure out. at the same time, these platforms don't want to be arbiters of what is true or false. so, facebook is teaming up with journalists, so was google, to try to align what factfinders have to say about the post on their networks to make it clearer for people that maybe they won't get is easily misguided. emily: google backed a collaborative effort called crosscheck around the french election, and they are using some of your technology at new whip.
11:46 pm
how is that working? paul: crosschecked is about the truth getting it boots on faster. it is a collaborative project started by the first that news coalition. they have 37 news rooms across france spotting very early on, when a new trend is emerging on social media, like a new video, a new piece of content, or a new image -- where our technology comes in is the are really good at spotting content as it starts to trend. so the journalists can spot coming very early on. at the instance of the first big fake story about the french candidate macron say you think finance by saudi arabia, that was spotted by journalist within an hour. they were able to stick a pin into a very quickly. this awareness upfront to fake news is why we are seeing less of it in the french election than we saw it back in the u.s.
11:47 pm
election last year. emily: aside from the quantity of it, what other trends are you seeing emerging in the fake news that is specifically focused around the french election? paul: there has been at least two fabricated stories, but there has not been as much as the u.s. part of it is that the pirates have not come to town. the run-up to the u.s. election, you had macedonian teenagers, content farms in california alternate out stories that they reckoned one side of the other wanted to read. emily: there was a study by facebook release last week saying that pointed to information operation, sort of, those people that they fake accounts under real people's names to try to spread information and comments and message groups around the web, and they actually got rid of 30,000 accounts in france,
11:48 pm
spreading information. it is less dramatic, but there is a lot of coordinated efforts to misinform. emily: everything to the question -- can fake news -- that brings me to the question --can fake news really be stopped or prevented? paul: it is hard. people have predispositions for liking certain kinds of stories, and if you have certain opinions of politicians. people are opting into fake news a little bit as well. it is hard for the platforms because they are developed algorithms serving you the stuff you want. if you want fake stuff, it is hard for them to strengthen and protect that. one thing that is important that journalists and people in media are able to step outside of their own culture bubbles and see what stories are trending in the worlds if they are not normally a part of, or looking at.
11:49 pm
2016, we saw on our platforms, that trump 2 was gettingx -- was getting 2x the amount of attention that hillary was getting. emily: sarah, you and i talked to -- about fake news. they take a very, very seriously. what is your read on whether facebook and get this under control? sarah: the company needs to take a few is a because it is not an issue for their revenue compared but it is an issue -- their revenue, but it is an issue. we for their users feeling like they trust the platform to inform them. we get more and more of our news passively. i think this is going to be a situation like spam, like hacking -- you can only move as
