9:00 am
but it's between those gangs. who cares about those. it was a weird answer to. >> it was very controversial. >> >> that conversation and so many more. make sure you join us tomorrow because right now, squawk on the street is next. >> good wednesday morning. welcome to squawk on the street. the market is getting it from all sides today. greece on the verge of default. inflation has bottomed. adp in line. a trade gap for april has some thinking q 2 might not be so bad. 10 year right around 228 229. that's almost a six month high.
9:01 am
apple's tim cook takes a not to vailed swipe at facebook and twitter. >> a lot to chew on. a buy back at wendy's. more frustration from mcdonald's and the ceo on mad money talking value. >> a range of comments from lydia meeting and shareholder meeting including what he called tv nowhere. first up ecb president holding a news conference in frankfort. he's sticking with the policy. he says full imp he menation is necessary to aid a recovery in euro zone. he calls for a strong agreement that would keep greece in the euro zone. we know the dead line is rapidly approach approaching. he did say, guys inflation has bottomed earlier this year than in europe. it's not going to go up a lot.
9:02 am
>> and the dollar will peak in. i see that the dollar has gotten weaker in the last 15 minutes. this is a good sign. yesterday when we saw the big rally from the bottom led by the euro it was not coincident when the euro got stronger the market got stronger. we're in a stock market where if the euro gets higher we go stronger. it's not about interest rates. we would go lower. watch how they trade when the rates go up. s&p. we like what we see. we don't want the endless bashing of our companies. think about it. did you watch the pvh yesterday? that stock was up 8 bucks. did you know the numbers were down because of europe?
9:03 am
they had revenued decline at 4%. why? because people are sensing that the dollar is peaking and the euro is making a come back. it's a contrary view. i'm willing to stake it just like i was willing to stake out the argument. i'm not sure you're right on the dollar either. >> michelle is back at hq monitoring comments. michelle. >> hey there, carl. we're asking about the resent debates and he was. he went through why it's possible it happened. maybe it's improved inpolice station expectations and economic expectations and could be technical reasons that at one point, of course there was a one directional investment. he put it everybody was long and
9:04 am
it was a massive unwinding that led to volatility. he wouldn't speculate on why or the technical reasons or fundamental reasons but he did say the monetary policy stance of the ecb will not change and also everyone should get use to more volatility period. back to you. >> michelle thank you for that. i imagine we'll speak again relatively shortly. meantime stakes out here adp, 201 was in line. it was the first rise since november and then the trade gap much narrower than expected. you couple that with auto sales, maybe the rebound is a little stronger. >> that's where we're going to see the 220 and 230. those numbers are difficult. there's a sense overall the port strike is winding down. i know these things seem oblivious to our viewers. seeing that kind of blog jam which is like the long island express jam to use a visceral
9:05 am
example which is at the end of the island for those who don't have google maps. there was a huge amount of commerce that was delayed by winter. there is, i'm starting to see some may numbers that surprised me in autos. look can we go by vera bradley, the hand bag accompany? the fed has to cut again. if we go by housing there's a chance we have to hear about fed tightening. paychecks on the other hand gave us a different reading. this is the same part of the economy that makes me feel like autos have struggled. autos are back to 2005. they get 20 more million americans. >> we got 20 million in 10 years. >> i got the numbers. 296 million people in august of 2005 when we last had the number of 17.7. now we have 24 million people additional. isn't it, by the way, the autos, wells fargo which was the number
9:06 am
one, number two cut back in march. everyone felt that was going to be the peak in autos. oh contrary. even better. >> not to mention the average price of an auto 33,300. that's a 4% rise and a lot of it is the high margin suv. >> yes and there's the silverado silverado. everyone but the f-150. i want to point out when you go over the numbers it's incredible. there's a sub prime bubble. other than allie financial which has produced many sub prime loans, michael jackson who was fantastic this morning on squawk, he said $3.5 trillion in auto loans have outstanding balances. i know it sounds like a lot but in relation to what houses were people walked away from their houses before they walked away to their car. you need a car to go to work but you can stay in your house and bet that the regulars are fine.
9:07 am
>> that's true. >> although there are two trends. the sharing economy and renting that both never seen quiet is high. certainly not based on the percentage. >> the shared economy not mentioning enough. this is finding all sorts of ways to make money. people who work for post mates, these are people who work four hours a day in order to make ends meet. that's happening too. they have more income. they want to work at chipotle too. 19 year old manager on mad money two weeks ago $100,000 accompany car, stock options and gets $10,000 bonus. been in the projects raised by sister outside of baltimore. this is what can happen in this country if you get these jobs. we're going to talk about mcdonald's and franchising soon. there's a lot of people making
9:08 am
money we didn't think would make money. people going to starbucks and going to college at the same time. >> we'll see what the jobs number is on friday. by the way, tweet us your predictions for may nonfund payrolls. the lucky winner receives a polo shirt autographed by the squawk on the street gang. best of luck. somebody did write in and say can i get a polo shirt that's not autographed. >> that's very interesting. >> yeah i'll give awe an underarmour shirt. how's that? >> sorry. >> you know i've seen people wearing autographed shirts in east hampton, they're cool. >> i didn't go to east hampton. didn't it sound good. >> tim cook taking shots at a couple of the silicon valley neighbors. he's not happy about how big tech companies are using your personal information. he delivered a speech to the
9:09 am
electron ek -- electronic. they've built businesses by localing customers personal information. they're gobbling up everything they can learn about you and trying to mono tiez it. we think it's wrong. it's not the kind of accompany apple wants to be. he doesn't mention companies by name but reports think he's taking shots at places like going lt google. >> it's not hard to figure out who he's talking about. >> how about he pitches to the targets in walmart saying he will not take your data using apple pay. >> we know they're afraid that apple is going to use their data. this is tim cook not taking aim at his competitors but saying listen guys, you should adopt apple pay. we're not going to use your
9:10 am
data. the data is important. the ability you have there regardless to safe guard privacy to a certain extent. it's the deal you enter with going google. >> nsa backs away and facebook comes in. >> yes. >> now, when you take a picture. >> although the encryption on the iphone is certainly enraged law enforcement. >> you're right. did you see the blog post about instagram and the tools they're adding? >> yes. >> there's a sense coming this is the mono tiezing moment on instagram instagram. finally. >> i was out to dinner last time with my daughter. taking pictures of our vegetarian meal.

9:48 am
overseas he talked about liberty global which he still controls and runs and has been a consolidateor in that industry in europe and a lot of different things come up about that name as well. here netflix is here to stay. hulu and others are fast and furious now whether apple or sony or amazon they will just keep coming from dish. he would have loved to have seen cable consolidate all of that and come up with an operating system that could been shared and filled the void before netflix did. >> i thought that the upgrades today, the commentary that's going to matter with direct tv that's going to be more of a factor. netflix is going to introduce some children's movies. >> i think four new series. four new animated series for netflix. >> then you have credits initiating cbs, comcast, disney fox. the only reason to own them is
9:49 am
context. it's because the pipes themselves are going to be i relative. >> i look at facebook today which is finally breaking out and i think you better come up with something that makes it so the advertisers are a little more exciting. the facebook, i guess they're going to be able to monotize. >> you watch a picture and press and they bring you that dish from. >> amazon is working on it. >> interest. >> yeah. nordstrom something by. >> it's incredible. i know that brian cornell was saying on mad money, you get these guys and they stay people love to shop. 30 million people still shop at tarngt. how many people shop at walmart.

9:55 am
some adjustments to these gdp estimates maybe to the upside and what the auto sales did even though april consumption wasn't that high. >> i think it would make sense even if you think wouldn't the euro be weaker verses the dollar. the euro is going stronger. maybe there's a confluence. people are talking about positive confluence of stronger economy and the united states. the euro may be going higher. i think the gdp is stronger. i'm a believer in the economy. it's a lot. it explains why the midwest has been so strong. be aware they're building 500,000 new cars in mexico starting next year and a lot of them, i know you want to know where they're being made. >> it's no longer just porter.

9:59 am
good wednesday morning. welcome back to squawk on the street. the new york stock exchange there's a lot of news today. a lot of it being driven by rates, currencies equities really an afterthought today as we keep our eye on the euro. oil will be one to watch as we get inventories in 30 minutes. >> the next 60 minutes, our road map. airlines getting a boost for the transit port sector this week. fifa president announcing he will resign. what does the on going
10:00 am
corruption scandal of the held of soccer mean for the game. colby jones, a former player for team u.s.a. joins to play in. >> causing a revival in the demand for older real-estate. we have more on the story coming up later in the our. >> ism service, let's get to rick santelli. rick. >> 55.7. that's definitely not anywhere near the 57 we're looking for and that follows an unrevised 57.8. so last time we're down at these levels, 55.7. i'm having to go way back actually. looks to me around april of last year. darn close to a year. this is very significant to pay attention. the service sector is the most vibrant part of the economy based on many data points. see the crowd behind me that's options. volatility is often a misused word. today there is options
10:01 am
volatility in that. carl and the gang back to you. >> yeah rick 25 basis point moves higher in the ten year. let's get more reaction to what's going on with steve. >> steve. >> some of the internals are okay with this. obviously, the overall index is a disappoint. . the business activity index 59.5. a high level down from 61. new orders index still a high level and the employment index at 55.3. peter tells me if it's a change from what it was. i've got it here. hold on. the employment index down a touch from 56.7. all of them well above the 50 level and the growth in those levels there. a bit of a disappointment showing not as much activity in the service sector. this morning we got adp, kind of the same story there. relatively high level. 201,000 jobs created off a 2015
10:02 am
estimate. that would leave the payroll estimate unchanged at 225. i don't think anybody's going to adjust that. coming in better than expected. that's going to flatter second quarter growth. we'll give you an update soon as we get the average of the economist weighed in. i've seen estimates plus two tengtss. saying trade is on force to make a positive contribution to second quarter gdp growth. over in europe you saw pretty outside response on the euro and the german boone and interest rates over there. we think they were mostly about his positive comments when it comes to inflation. >> supported by the expected economic recovery and the consumption in higher prices in the years ahead, inflation rates
10:03 am
are expected to pick up further here in 2016 and 2017. >> also raise the estimate for 2015, there's your euro which you can see is strengthening off 11 1 111 and 112 right now. yields were up higher above 80. remember those were way, way down. those were higher yields. the question is why that is the ecb is out there buying trillions of dollars to euros of bonds. simon, back to you. >> thank you very much steve. in the meantime the euro zone is handing to the prime minister. it's called principals for economic reform it's demanding from athens and orders to unlock the cash they need. it's importantly for markets to get a deal by friday. in athens earlier, he dug his
10:04 am
heels in discussing a 47 page author. they believe the incentives points towards him agreeing a deal. one because opinion poles shows the retiring of the negotiations negotiations. the majority wants a deal. they might not surprise missing the payment entering the funds two month grace period with possibly a national referendum which could cause chaos. finally, because they said the bigger price for the greeks is to buy time towards a structuring of the greek owned by the other governments and the ecb. that's what the imf is suggesting. >> could be another spresing 24 hours. let's bring in lindsey, the chief economist and joining us by the phone the investment institute. maybe we'll start with you. when it comes to the markets, we're seeing a 70 point rally in
10:05 am
the dow and they're jumping and we have all these risks. which one are you most worried about? which one do you think stocks are reacting to? >> i think stocks are still taking their queues off the easy fed policy. you see the data seem to be sluggish. so many people are starting to really think long and hard about whether the federate is hard this year. i think a lot of people are moving beyond that and really starting to think hikes are a 2016 story. i think that's where there could be a negative surprise. >> so we got the services number falling back to 55.7. a little off from april. we got the adp number coming in bang in line. how does this set us up? >> i think it settings a similar tone to what we've seen and this continued decline from the momentum from the pace we've saw at the end of last year. going into friday's number i
10:06 am
think we're going to see a muted increase around 225,000. very much in line with last month. a step in the right direction from the more pronounced weakness in march. a very large step in the wrong direction from the pace we saw at the end of last year. really the theme is more of the same. positive but very modest growth in the u.s. economy. >> the problem i have here is that both of you were talking and it doesn't match what's happening to the ten year. both of you are talking about growth and yet the market is selling off, in europe quiet dra matd cli. that might be one reason why. those yields tell you where are we now? we're above the highest closure in the year. up points over the last two or three sessions. that's a huge move from where we've been. >> it is it is a big move. honestly, where you're seeing the most of that is on the real interest rate side where we've gone fairly negative. due to the quantitative you're seeing is similar to 2013 when
10:07 am
the economic news was rolling in well and the feds talked more about tapering. what you're really seeing is not on the inflation side. there's real rates starting to get back to positive levels which is a good thing for markets if it comes alongside positive economic data. it's not strong but not weak either. i think markets are starting to look and go why am i getting negative rates? >> let me put it the other way. if you're a stock investor and looking at the ten year at 2.3% at what point does the rise in the ten year in treasuries mean now? maybe i'll go to the treasury market now. you think about the earnings on the s&p close to 6% maybe higher depending on what you're looking at for earnings in 2015 and beyond and you're looking at 2.3% as you mentioned object ten year that's a compelling relationship. it would take a ten year north of 3% to make stock investers
10:08 am
start to rethink 17 times as a historical multiple. i think you have quiet a ways to go. >> when it comes to greece, lindsey, the strategy has been we've been through so many of these daetd lines and talks, don't get rattled. it will just be down to the wire. that's if you're an equity market investor. chief said on squawk box this morning, they did say that about the dot com crash. is there a potential for greece to do this? >> it's interesting because it's two scenarios. on the one hand if you see greece leave the euro zone it could be they lost the weakest link. because they're banned together
10:09 am
they got strength in the earlier area. if we see greece leave the concern is a domino effect now. we see the prif yal weaker economies follow suit. that really is the dichotomy that the market is trying to deal with right now whether or not it will be in the end a good thing for the euro zone or a lead to the demise. >> it's rare somebody says something on the program i really feel needs pushed back on because it just it cannot be. . it cannot be those yields in spain and italy and portugal are expected. if you go that far, there's no way markets can rally on that not for some time. that's a horrible scenario you're flipping off there. >> i'm not flipping it off. that's the dichotomy the market is trying to deal with. we've never dealt with the euro
10:10 am
zone before. the market is trying to determine what the outcome will be if we do see greece leave the euro zone. we're not forecasting that but that would be a three, four five standard deviation event that the market is trying to go for. >> utilities are getting beat up hard again. is there any reason to own them in your portfolio or should you stick with the winners? >> well one of the things we would say about the rates in general is they're at attractive levels. we think the ten year ends the year between a quarter and 275. rates in general are close to a stopping point. they provide a steady amount of income. from our standpoint, i would say one, rates are somewhat attractive on a relative basis,
10:11 am
especially globally and two, the sectors beat up the most might have overreacted a little bit and might be some value there. >> all right. we'll see what happens. we're seeing the dow up 90 points. >> when we come back airlines helping to pull the transit port sector out of its rut. is it time to buy? we'll talk about that when squawk on the street comes back. dow up almost 88 points.
10:12 am
10:13 am
10:14 am
the dow down 115 points. 45 minutes of trading. we said earlier by rates and bonds for the german bond up to 87 basis points. this is the strongest two day rise in the boone since 1998. >> we were point 6.
10:15 am
>> another major direction is simply they're talking about inflation. >> a lot of people are looking at the reaction. >> it's a reaction to u.s. economic data. yields were at the highs of the year. you see the impacts. utilities are the only s&p group as the dow goes above 108 points. >> let's get breaking news from kate. >> hey simon. hedge fund manager donating $400 million to harvard this morning making it the largest ever given. it will be renamed the harvard applied sciences. some of the money will be put toward building a new campus not
10:16 am
far from the harvard business school where he himself attended and graduated. he founded his hedge fund accompany in 1994 and manages some $19 billion today. overall, it's been a big time. this gift comes in the midst of a push to attract additional capital. in the fall of 2013 they launched the harvard campaign. manies later another hedge fund manager, founder ken griffin donated 150 million to the college and last year a chinese capitalist and real-estate investor donated $350 million to the school of public health. they have a healthy amount of money for investment there too. >> they can pay for everybody
10:17 am
who needs it. >> thanks a lot, kate. in the meantime airlines facing head winds. delta lowered their forecast. let's bring in jim. he's the airline manager. jim, good morning to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> we had delta guidance american a week or two ago. are you worried about the summer or no? >> i think the summer is still going to be pretty strong. i think airlines are obviously a growing capacity a little bit and hefrevenues have weakened a little bit. i expect in the fall they're going to pull back on the capacity a little bit. low factors are high enough to work with capacity and try to get the price up a little bit. >> it's been such a nice ride for people who have never
10:18 am
thought they would see stocks in the sector act like this. why not ring the register while the getting is good. >> certainly, if you had a double in 2013 another double in 2014, you might want to take profits. we think that the resent drop in stock prices have made the group look propelling. we expect strong travel demand. with fuel prices down we're going to look at record profitability for the industry. we're going to use the cash to buy back stock and fix the balance sheet further. we think it's a good time. >> it has been a rough year so far. who looks the cheapest to you? >> we have buys across the entire universe we cover. we have strong buys on delta. we like the fact they take a little bit of the risk out for them. we think united which is trading at a huge discount to peers. we expect them to close the gap
10:19 am
a little bit this year. >> jim, how far will we be able to go to reduce the price transparency people have in the market? they had rather have people go to their own sites and charge more arguably or not on some extras. where does that take us? i see today in a different vain charging $18 for those that book outside its direct channels. >> i think ultimately that type of behavior will hurt the industry in the long run. i think consumers want more choices. they want to be able to book wherefore they choose. they want the pricing information to be transit parent. i think it's a bad idea. they may get margins up in the short run. >> do you think it's southwest which doesn't engage in that in the first place? >> yeah i think those airlines
10:20 am
that had the most transparency towards consumers will be able to track more market share. >> of the majors then jim, whose your favorite? >> like i said, we can't differentiate between our strong buys. we have buys on alaska. we have a strong buy oni should mention. >> those on the left side of your spectrum. >> any capacity cuts that come in the fall will hurt them the most. we have a strong sell on sky west airlines. >> sky west. an interesting year already. probably going to stay that way into the summer. jim, thanks ago. >> coming up later on the show, double lines jeffrey gun lock will be joining squawk ali live. he has seen 16 straight months. what a day to talk to him with treasury yields surging across the globe. you won't want to miss that one. we're back on squawk on the street after a quick break.

dow session highs up 147. let's get to rick whose about to have a very busy morning and afternoon. >> hey busy is good. listen, today the markets are on the move. it seems though the ones that are getting the most attention are the ones that make sense. why? because you can only squeeze that water balloon so long and investors do what investors do. they trade and try to trade in a
10:25 am
price discovery and discovering the price takes a lot more runway than it use to. let's consider a couple of things. we know when it comes to comparing the ten year note that they link up at different points and the way they've linked up lately is if you were to look yesterday when this started, they both linked up to the same. you had to go back to early december of this year to get them both on the same page in terms of last time they closed at the high yields. that's interesting because you go dot to dot to dot where they relink and in between you get the spread moving around. but these dots like today are significant. about an hour ago they were linking back to the 19th of november. that's the last time they both closed at the high yields level. look at the chart as i'm talking. boone yields have gotten up close to 90 points. last time a boone closed up here, you have to go to 1029.
10:26 am
between 1029 today we have higher yields than we have now. guess where the yields were on the 29th of october. you guessed it. 231 and 232 right where they are now. we'll be copying right back to the same areas as well. let's go a different direction. we settled five years last year. 166 to 30s at 275. look at a year to date chart. only one session this year march 6th where all three of the yields were higher than they were all in the same day than they closed last year. today, of course is the second. this is a decision. if i had to pick something easy and easy is best as to whether traders are going to go home short or long in cover on some of this selling. i would say look no farther than the five year. if the smallest duration on the curve settles above it 166 close, i would think that's
10:27 am
going to be a continued green light for more normalization. keep in mind on the boones most traders think 1% is where it's going to settle out. they could be there in about 10 minutes. sarah, back to you. >> we'll see if we get a breakout on the resent highs. straight ahead stocks are in rally mode today. the dow up 140. s&p up about half a percent and the nasdaq. our one and only will be joining us at post 9 to help navigate all of the risks going on in the mark. we'll be right back.

good morning everyone. i'm sue. here's your cnbc news update at this hour. china escalating efforts to retrieve those missing after a cruise ship overturned. more than 420 people are still unaccounted for. the ship had been sited for safety violations more than two years ago. ash carter giving a ceremonial welcome to india. a part of a broader u.s. effort to improve what has been recently iraqi relationship between the two countries. more than 400 migrants arrived in italy after being rescued off the coast of libya. more than 10,000 migrants have been rescued in sea in resent weeks. more tar balls washed up on
10:31 am
california beaches yesterday. the latest discovered in malibu making it the largest stretch to turn up the oil clumps. workers removed the tar yesterday. that is your cnbc news update. back to you guys. >> hi we'll take a weekly inventory numbers and we actually saw a decline of 1.9 million barrels last week according to the government and a decline of 334,000 barrels of gasoline. that's different than what we saw from the industry yesterday. the api reported the surprise build of about the same amount yesterday which put the crude oil prices under pressure. we are seeing them come off of the lows. this market is really waiting until friday. we were going to have two big events for the oil markets one being the meeting in indiana and the job from members, the latest from the minister today is that
10:32 am
they are going to stand packed. they will not cut production. they want to see the rest of the world move on that particularly the u.s. shell producers and of course obviously, guys the big jobs numbers. overall, we are off of the lows here and still holding in above $60 a barrel, back to you. >> just about 61. thank you, bertha. we're also watching europe. stocks and bonds are in rally mode as the country's leaders go to russia. cnbc chief international correspondent has more. no deal yet? >> yeah no deal. i'm not sure we're close at all. at the same time the greek prime minister claims he's going to discuss his proposal. the german finances minister shows there won't be any agreement any time soon. in the meantime we are getting leaks on what will be presented. the greeks long argued they want
10:33 am
to have a much lower primary budget surplus. how much money do they have to put aside for the functioning of the government so it can be used to pay down debt. they said they will be offered 1% primary buget next year. 2% and 3.5% in 2018. that's lower than what had been proposed on them recently. they're going to hold a meeting tomorrow to discuss whether or not they find the reform plan acceptable. in his press conference, president mario asked and repeated the following. >> going counsel ecb wants greece to stay in the euro but they should be a strong agreement and a strong agreement is one that produces growth that has social fairness. but that is also fiscally sustainable. >> at this point, there's no sign of any agreement, sarah, as you know. back to you. >> yeah, but important,
10:34 am
nonetheless of getting his support of keeping greece in. let's bring in our cash and talk more about the market impact. there's so much going on. there's so much to watch. let's look at the euro. it's raging forward almost up 1% on the u.s. dollar. is that an indication of the market sentiment right now around greece and u.s. data and everything else? >> i think it is. i think they believe that the crisis will be everted. nobody believes that the friday dead line is really a dead line of any type and the sense is that they're going to let them look at a bulk payment at the end of the month. unforchau unfortunate unfortunately, the last time they gave somebody permission to do that, it was am bee yen and that didn't work out well. i think the markets are optimistic they're going to work out. the euro is better. we're right up against some resistance here.
10:35 am
that's 2120 to 24. the dow jones, 18,160 to 18,175. >> not quiet there yet. >> am i right saying they should be important and change the goal post officially today? it use to be they would run until december 2016. now in the statement, i believe it says all until the ecbc sustained inflation towards its target. in other words, if inflation picks up before 2016 the germans wind and they could be ended early. that's partly what we seen today, isn't it. >> i think so. they could not maintain full credibility without at least hinting that he noticed that the inflation targets had begun to move in europe already with the cbi numbers and whatever. >> this is a point i've been trying to bring to the table. if you start having a discussion about the ecb ending early, what happens here?
10:36 am
clearly, that's dollar negative at the margin. what happens here? how strongly are we anchored in this country? >> well if it looks like they're going to change and end early, it's going to make it far easier for the fed to make its lift off move because then they're worried about what was happening in the dollar and elsewhere. if you look at what they said yesterday, spoke a great deal about the dollar and great deal of concern about it. if that were to change that would hold the door slightly ajar for the fed and give them a chance and the markets would have to review that. >> auto sales, the trade gap today, construction spending, adp, at least it's a sequential improvement. >> i think q 2 is certainly looking better and in fact the sales are the best they've been since we had, do you remember cash for clunkers? that's the last time we had
10:37 am
sales up in this area. we're making these sales without that kind of stimulus. >> is that's what is driving the bond market? 232. that gets your attention. or is it what's happening in europe and boones and everywhere else. >> i think it's primarily europe is the key factor for today and the other thing is on the technical basis on the charts, the yields and the bonds are pressing up against resistance and if they break through that could lead to another leg in yields. >> why are we up 146 points on the dow? >> you're up in a kind of sell bra tory mode. it looks like the economy is not quiet as stagnant as it looks. they're doing a little goldy locks thing here. a little of this and that and moving along. >> any time the dollar doesn't skyrocket, it's when you stop
10:38 am
hitting your head with a hammer, right. >> you're dead right. it's the euro rising giving a sense here people say oh good. multinationals benefit better and the sales move up. we don't have to worry about the strong dollar. >> it's one day. >> no argument there. >> we should note that the nasdaq is actually trading above its record close of 5106. 59. keep an eye on the levels. interesting we are starting to see signs of a breakout in momentum, something we haven't seen in the rallies in the last few days. >> everybody's been talking about how compressed the range has been and how unusual that's been. we're as i say pressing up dpeps the higher part of it. you may get short covering or people saying the new quarter has begun, we're in a new month and i don't have a portfolio that matches what the market's doing. you can get momentum feeding on itself here as a possibility if you continue to breakout.
10:39 am
>> we'll see what happens the rest of the trading session. thanks, art. always good to have you on. >> when we come back this morning, as you know surprising seth bladder announcing his resignation. what does it mean for the future of fifa and the sport of soccer? we'll talk to colby jones whose played in three world cups. dow is up 144. squawk on the street will be right back.

10:43 am
highs. thanks in part due to telecon trading higher. >> carl we're watching the telecons and a notable upgrade on the front. regional communications upgrade from a neutral. also at&t aedded the jeffreys franchise pick list as target raised to $40 a share. also interesting this is an interest rate sector and of course as rates rise utilities lagging but telocon today having a nice day. >> financials, don, thank you. the fifa fall out continues this morning. the fbi investigating the set bladder who in probably not connected to an event. he announced he's going to resign suddenly. on the heels of arrest of corruption and bribery last wednesday into what was advertised to its most wanted list. joining us now, his thoughts on
10:44 am
fifa's on going crisis. former team u.s.a. and soccer star colby jones. welcome to the program. >> thank you very having me. >> are you sorry to see him go? >> no i think it was time. considering everything that's happened. i think it was necessary for him to step down. >> how do the players feel? you have the most captive players in the country. what do they say about the way things are organized? a lot of the allegations are about north and south america. >> i think it's something when you talk about the players it goes internationally world wide. everyone had a tough time understanding what was going on at fifa and i think everyone sees now this is the perfect time we need to reorganize the situation going on. >> i can understand why you, we don't understand why they got the world cup or arguably
10:45 am
russia. your personal experience on the ground meeting responses. >> for the most part it's really about the bids. that's the main thing that effects everybody the most where are you going to playing the world cups. if you look at fifa and the organization, everything that goes back to the 70s, everyone had to wonder. there would be talk amongst the players about what's going on. this is a sport we love and we want to see it run thanksrance parents. if there's talk with the bidding process we're going to be upset and want it to be right. >> do you find it strange and agree with the fact none of the sponsors have dropped a deal with fifa after these allegation sns. >> no. i could understand it. i understand why. fifa is in control of all these different tournaments around the world and look within every
10:46 am
organization, there's some tiepd of corruption. where the money is there's corruption. there's a lot of money within international soccer. you have world cups at all different levels. the women's world cup is just coming up. everybody, every sponsor wants to be involved. if there's some bad apples at the top, i think the sponsors rather see the bad apps go and still stay involved with the sport. >> which is what he said. the business is too big. colby, obviously, everybody wants to see change. my question is whether there can be change at fifa that sorts things out. it's not like a ceo coming in with the ability to change the structure. you've got to have the people voted in. what happens next do you think? >> well i think there's going to be an effort to make change and there will definitely obviously be change at the top with seth stepping down. there needs to be i guess when we start talking about that executive committee where a lot
10:47 am
of the issues come from there needs to be change at that level and it can't be allowed to stay with just a few people. there has to be an understanding you are responsible for any illegal actions that happen that people will come after you as we see right now. then all the sudden maybe people will step back and not try to go the wrong route. >> colby, one of our viewers writes saying colby jones for fifa president. i'm wondering, would a player would a former player have real legitimacy here separate from the sponsors and all that. would it be possible someone who played on the field renews the sense of authority in the league? >> i think this would be respect from all the players which would definitely help. i know there's talk about michelle, the head trying to run. louise, another former player. i think they have respect at all
10:48 am
