tonight is everything in terms of striking the right town in terms of race relations, acknowledging the suffering servant people have gone through in terms of acknowledging how resins the issue is. of hisseeing some biggest supporters deserted him. tonight, two senators, two of tractors, last night was a good moment for him in terms of resetting and being able to do a speech. can you show a unified -- in terms of his rhetoric? we will see. his detractors-- and there has been criticism of charlottesville. at full numbers of it you handled that issue, is still split on party lines with many republicans see no issue.
3:39 pm
republicans, a little above 60%, they say he handled his response to charlotte -- that a 60% of republicans. remember among those who voted for him, the numbers closer to 80 the 90. it is dipping about 20 points below where he should be getting among the republican base and they do not have many options. see -- be interesting to dependsis a state that on immigration, in terms of people saying it is displaced job -- jobs. if the president could remain focused on an economy focused mesh it -- message in terms of bringing good jobs back and returning manufacturing and making this a stronger place for you to live, he will do well. he getslem is distracted by the message and he is so focused on other things that he does not hammer it home and that has a his biggest week best. >> there is also a risk of a government shutdown.
3:40 pm
i read from our colleagues who said this has the makings of a entrance seeto the of both sides over the wall and democrats will not supply any for building a wall, but it is such a signature item for trump and many members of the gop. is this a significant risk that people are perhaps not payment -- pay enough attention to? be partll say it has to and parcel of any budget he approves. think we run the risk of his setting them apart from other presidents. there are many issues other presidents have fallen on -- fallen on. he will never get funding for the law and the budget. we know that and his voters know that. that will be more important. very interesting and hopefully a peaceful event.

volume on the s&p is about 15% below the average. in terms of the big movers on the day, a renewed interest in retail on the session. dsw, designer shoe warehouse, having its best session since 2005. also an unexpected gain in its calm sales, driven by an unexpected demand in ladies shoes. going inoking at coty the opposite direction. tumbling the most since it went public for years ago. it shows the integration of beauty brands that it bought from png is still challenging the company. macy's has been bouncing back, it has been declining recently. it named the former ebay vice president as president, so a little bit more technology exposure there. and chevron, a reaction to the

we are not entirely confirming this risk on take your. if we take a look at the new zealand dollar to the dollar, down in fact, and there is thiss -- some talk that currency is somewhat stretched and we may see it unwind more. and the euro is up just fractionally. if it was a real risk on day you might seal that new zealand dollar higher and that euro higher. let's look at the intraday chart of bitcoin. that is unbelievable. it was down 10%, and now finishing higher by 2%. it is par for the course, with the bitcoin going in all sorts of directions. think it is possible to characterize this as risk on, with quite a bit of uncertainty and volatility. it is hard to know. joe: looking at more

-quebec. -tabac.er there is this continuing weakness in small-cap read take a look at the bloomberg and i will describe the chart i am showing. it has slipped below its 200 a moving average at this point. what are make of this now-waiting gain of small caps versus the large caps? is definitely concern -- a tocern on a short intermediate term basis. stocks continue to be leading indicator of the economy. in 2015, the russell 2000 rolled over about a month before the market did, and resulted in a correction of about 12% in the s&p. the russell ended up in a bear
4:06 pm
market, down around 20%. i am not saying that is happening, but it shows that, between the small caps rolling over, and a number of stocks above their 200 a moving averages, we are seeing a little bit of a deterioration in the internals. the combination of the internals in the small caps makes me think we will see a downside before this plays out. sticking with the idea of the internals deteriorating, we have a great chart on the bloomberg. it talks about the nasdaq 100, because everybody's talking about how tech is hot this year. this doesn't show the nasdaq well above that 200 a moving average. but below, we see the number of members that are above the 200 a moving average really shrinking, right now at 44%. but importantly, below a level of support, similarly to what
4:07 pm
happened in 2015 and 2016. we remember that risk off in the beginning of 2016. are you can to assert -- are you concerned about these signals? >> the number of stocks above the 200 day moving average and nasdaq, andus the you also seed it in the s&p 500 and the dow, which are up about 60% in the stocks above 200 day. and then you have the new york the new york stock exchange index, and the russell 2000, that are below >. the foundation in this rally is not as strong as we would like it to be, even if the fundamentals are improving. back awant to bring chart looking at the relative underperformance of germany's index, versus the s&p 500. equities, and-us
4:08 pm
we don't need to rehash those arguments. but lately, the trade isn't working, as viewers can see line.g at that teal do have any explanations for why it isn't working? this is definitely something i have been talking about for a couple of weeks now. with what is going on in germany, and if you look at the european stock market, the euro stoxx 600 index has been rolling over a little bit. when we start to see fundamental the terrier ration of the internals, i start to look at, what are the crowded trade? -- crowded trades? beause those things seem to the catalyst for when the market rolls over. the euro has had a huge run but in the last mark, -- in the last month, it has petered out.
4:09 pm
the futures guys are loaded to the gills on the euro. and talking about some of these sentiments, these business sentiment surveys, showing disappointment. again, we are not so much worried that europe is going to roll over and fall out of bed, but when everyone turns to one side, it turns out it is not as strong as people thought, so that could b.a.t. catalyst here as we going to these months of august and september. catalyst, is say the implication that, people who have losing trades might start selling more than just those traits? trades?ose yes, and when we look at what is going on with leverage, leverage is absolutely horrible leading economic indicator.
4:10 pm
but when people get crowded into one trade, there tends to be a lot of leverage in it. a moves in the other direction when that leverage gets unwound. we saw what happened when hillary clinton made a comment about biotech stocks a couple of years ago, and the group got hammered. when people have to unwind leverage, it tends to overshoot on the other side. when people have to sell things, and there is not enough bids in that one market, they turn to other markets, and the u.s. stock market tends to be one of those markets. matt, thank you so much. breaking earnings here on salesforce.com. like it is looks beating on all of the metrics. earnings-per-share, $.33, one cent ahead of estimates. earnings, beating rest -- earnings, beating estimates as well. however, it looks like the stock is trading lower.

shift to that giant, about six inch screen. but people love to that for the productivity case uses. there are so many people who want a phone for their only device. you don't want a laptop or tablet. they want to do everything with a phone, and the note answers that question. i think at some point, apple is going to move closer to that. you remember, with the six plus in 2014, apple moved do the five and half inch screen, which they are going to retain this year with some of the models. i think that were is the needle is going, having one device that does it all. samsung's already there and you will see more that tomorrow. joe: do we know anything about iphone 8 pricing, or the general pricing strategy, going forward? mark: what we know is there are going to be three models. upgrade theill

"what'd you miss?" u.s.,s. mexico, -- the mexico and canada have wrapped up the first round of trade, but when it comes to trade deals, research may take a backseat to raise. joining us now is alexandra guisinger from philadelphia.
4:34 pm
joe: professor, thank you very much for joining us. give us the quick, overall view of your research. you argue that people have strong views on free trade, but that really they are strongly informed, essentially, about feelings of race. my research shows there are strong views because that is in one's own economic interest. 70% of americans don't have their own economic interests. they are looking at the expectations of how it affects other people. abouthey start thinking who trade protection will benefit, and whether they are for that sort of protection that will redistribute income. professor,curious,
4:35 pm
if you then see more resistance deals, for example if you are looking at nafta, more resistance to favorable trade deals with mexico, versus canada. do you see that kind of a split? it is true that people are concerned about who the other trading partner is. i think that is more of an issue then necessarily between canada and mexico. but yes, it is also true with mexico. joe: what us through your research methodology. you establish a way to determine people's motivation, by looking at who they perceive would be harmed by free trade deals. i started by looking at political campaign ads and looking at who was depicted in those campaign ads. and it was primarily white men,
4:36 pm
depicted in those ads. and that gave me the idea of, what if other groups were depicted in those ads? so i could manipulate a standard newspaper article about trade. i took 850 respondents to a survey, and i gave some a standard newspaper article focusing on the manufacturing industry as a whole. and the two other groups, i gave them pictures of people affected trade., -- affected by i manipulated the race in those different inspections -- in those different depictions. and i changed the names as well. and what i found is, two things. one, whenever you move from general industry to specific people, unfortunately, we see people's sympathy the climb.
4:37 pm
that is standard across a lot of research, when we move from a general, to a specific individual. africanyou showi american worker, support for protection declines much more than if you show a picture of a white worker. line, when bottom looking at a political campaign ad that to think that a black person losing their job, they were less inclined to be concerned about the ramification of free trade. you, what does this imply for people who are in favor of three trade? economists,,emics, with these explanations that free trade is not that bad and there are very few people in arms. if so many reactions to trade are about these got things, like issues of race, what does that
4:38 pm
imply about making the case for free trade? i think the general story isn't only about the benefits of free trade. that doesn't resonate with a lot of groups in america. i focus on why that doesn't resonate, and it doesn't resonate with minorities and women. in the futuret, there will be some better opportunity because of a free doesn't really influence white women or minority women or minority women -- or minority men. manipulate white men's byieve in free trade a lot talking about the story, who is going to benefit from protection, but you can also visit reverse. you can militant delete them -- you can manipulate them in favor of free trade. but it only speaks to certain parts of society.
4:39 pm
the free tradeon messages we often hear, they don't really resonate with women and minorities. would imagine at this point you have to go more toward the realm of speculation, but when you look at this political messaging, how deliberate do you think it is, if they are using trying to express these deliberate messages on trade, how deliberate is it? alexandra: that would be hard for me to know. i do think that deliberation may have changed, overtime. ofhave deliberate choices racial depictions, particularly in welfare. and the choice of not showing minorities, not showing women, is increasingly deliberate. women are only showed in these butabout 13% of the time,
4:40 pm
they make up a fair amount of the manufacturing industries that are shown. the focus is on specific industries that resonate with certain groups, and it is it is deliberate. we do have breaking news, coming from president trump's camp. president trump will not be pardoning joe arpaio tonight. former arizonahe sheriff known for his aggressive enforcement of immigration laws, by methods including racial profiling. he was voted out of office last november, and convicted of criminal contempt of court, and faces sentencing in october. this would have been unusual if the president had granted this particular pardon, and it looks

abigail: "what'd you miss?" what are the biggest breakups and silicone valley history was when hewlett-packard is split into two country -- into two companies, in 2015. litter,e runt of the but now that rent is outshining hpe. anan? the split of the two
4:44 pm
companies, one was an enterprise segment, storage and it networking software. and the other one was pcs and printers. pcs are in structural decline. printers are in structural decline, and fast-forward to today, pcs are not so bad. and they have found a way to do well in a very weak, structural market. , the printerc. and pc division. sold the off and services business. they spun off and sold the software business. what is left, its servers. left, is servers. the business is moving to the public cloud of they are not exposed to bear. the cloud does not want to buy
4:45 pm
branded servers from hp or dell. they want to buy nonbranded boxes. hp, on one hand you get exposed to that business, and potentially margins get iffy. if you are not exposed to the business, it is growing. hp is in a structurally weakening market. sexy -- the ue n-sexy one is the one that is doing well, the one that is pcs.ng printers and look, i havet is, a formula, called the four box model, where i have found a way to make my printer and my ink

relationship with a company much better than it was. inc. is a 20% margin business. laptops are off for percent margin business. it is phenomenal. they have found a way to make renting and printing supplies and printer devices better than it was. theyn the devices side, are doing must better by taking costs out of the equation. yes, it is not structurally going to grow, but my earnings are going to be better. and there are slivers of growth too.they are trying t, they have some high-end office printing equipment that they are trying to get into. and it reminds me of cbs viacom splitting.
4:47 pm
cbs, outperforming, shows that when companies have this idea of when a split is cool and not uncool one. the you can see hp has done much better now. they diverged in february. hpe has been lagging. printerve got hpe, the one, that is reporting earnings tomorrow. we have to wait into september 5. what you looking for from hp? >> more of the same. i want to see strong execution. portion ofee the ink their business, and the jet cartridges, i want to see that part of the business do well. and on the printer side, they are continuing to gain share. they have the number one unit share the market again, after a very long time. i want to see that momentum
4:48 pm
continue. is one of thes least consolidated parts of the technology business. they only make up roughly 60% or 70% of units. still a substantial amount of consolidation to be had, away from hp, dell, and noble. hp and dell are gaining substantially more share, and i want to see that continue. the top line may not be sexy, but it still propels earnings. julie: when you look at the main demand for printers, it is presumably corporations. as that remained steady over the past few years? >> is a combination. consumer printers are weak, but the high-end is ok. but the pages of being printed is what counts. thanks.

we have a lot of retail investors in there. if we do have another quantum , i'm a risks manager, i don't guess what will happen. i just try to figure out how it will play out if it does happen and i think it will take a very different path than it did in august,20's seven -- 2007. abigail: there has been this proliferation of quantitative driven strategies in the market. so one would think they are more important than ever. peas, youur latest tell us it won't necessarily take down everything. >> the big difference this time is there is last -- less leverage. the institutional products have reduced their leverage.

i think the impact on the market would be huge. month -- what it might do is a lot of damage to people who put their money into these products. i think anyone invested in these things should think about, are you prepared to take a month thee you underperform in s&p 500, or whatever your whatever yours -- benchmark is, by 5%. if you are willing to accept that, there are some very smart products out there. even just the market to market of daily losses, a more sophisticated investec -- investor, would be different. yes, when you have daily liquidity. on the other hand, investors

don't always move the same on the same day. julia: what about those who run these funds? if you go back to 2007, i would argue there was a greater degree beliefrstanding of core versus an adoption of some forms of mathematical quantum strategies. they did not understand the drawdowns, or the depths drawdowns could be taken, versus someone who has just incorporated mathematical strategies? institutional investors, professional investors, people who should know better, are also surprisingly unprepared for drawdowns. sometimes retail investors get a bad name. but, lose a lot of money, and suddenly all those calculations
4:55 pm
you made don't seem so great. yes, there were more institutional investors and they were more prepared for this kind of thing. one aspect of that is, quantum has gotten much broader. in 2007, quantum was much better to find. , they are investing in a stock that most quantum's would say are not the right stocks. there is a much greater diversity of holding in these funds, then there was in the hedge funds back in 2007. that was aaron brown, former chief risk officer at a qr capital management. abigail: it is time for the bloomberg business flash. clatterbuck will replace the ceo of into it. she is the acting finance leader
