5:01 am
>> good morning and welcome to "world wide exchange." i'm sara eisen. >> i'm wilfred frost. good morning from me as well. best day for the s&p 500 in weeks. best day for the dow in two weeks and gains are set to continue. marginal gains. s&p up less than a full point. dow jones up 17. nasdaq up 2. one more trading day in the month, two, today and tomorrow. we are seeing another month of gains. fractional. we still continue the streak of not having a 1% move, but the path of least resistance appears to be to the upside. >> lowest volume day of the year yesterday. so far a continuation of the interest rate from the stocks from friday did well. all be it confusingly bond yields did slip down. banks were the best performing sector. equities playing catchup with the dollar move we had with rate
5:02 am
rise expectations. see energy do well despite oil prices slipping. a couple of dislocations. let's show you the ten-year treasury yield. right now. backing up a bit yesterday. taking higher this morning. we are below the 1.60 level. sit a heavy week of economic data ending with the ultimate, the job numbers for the month of august. we say it every month it takes on greater importance, but it really does after the comments from the central bankers in jackson hole looking for the trend of job improvement and wage gains to continue to raise as early as september. the bond market pricing that in more than 50% chance nor december, not september. we'll see where rate expectations move with the data. >> certainly expectations have
5:03 am
come forward a little bit. let's have a look at what's happening around the rest of the world. europe rallied when wall street opened and opened positively. pretty positive today as you can see. germany and france up 1%. ftse 100 closed yesterday. flat. italy and spain bouncing back. we had data out of europe which will come to in a moment for you which has helped markets this morning. asia also seeing decedent trade for the most part of the back of strong close on wall street yesterday. japan as you can see, just below flat. that was particularly strong yesterday after we've seen the yen weaken since friday. >> as for the broader market picture, go across and show you oil which is gaining this morning. wti 47.33 after selling off yesterday by more than a percent. brent is inching toward that $50 a barrel level again. 49.60. up .70%.
5:04 am
gasoline prices firm as well. as for the u.s. dollar, this has been the center of the action. especially the dollar versus the yen. this reflects short-term interest rate expectations. it is particularly tied to the two-year yield. which is also tied to where the market thinks the fed is going. we are looking at a three-week high for the u.s. dollar against the japanese above 102. it's not a huge move, but worth watching as we try to figure out september or december or even a rate hike this year. the euro continues to sell off with the dollar stronger again. versus that currency. and the dollar stronger against the pound as well. 1.30. as for bolgold, down 2% for the month of august this year. some of the gains we've seen in 2016 have backed off on the stronger u.s. dollar that we have seen. >> indeed. want to mention as well the jurpz data in terms of what come out in the last few minutes. lowest level since october 2013
5:05 am
so disappointing reading in terms of business sentiment in europe as you can see earlier, european stocks still doing well today despite that. might be down to expectations of more easing off the back of it. either way, strong gains across europe today. >> i wonder if there's a brexit effect on this. wider europe. >> in terms of business confidence, yeah. -- >> will state aide from ireland. if t it could believe ordered to pay approximate billions of dollars in back taxes. claim for taxes from the world's multinationals. the u.s. press secretary josh earnest responded ahead of today's decision, listen. >> the united states is committed to tax fairness. we want to make sure that the
5:06 am
kinds of agreements that we reach with other countries are not manipulated to allow certain companies to shirk that responsibilities. >> he says on one hand this has been a point of contention between the u.s. and european authorities. this idea that potentially europe, the european commission which is centered in brussels, going after u.s. multinationals, especially technology companies pretty hard when it comes to anti-trust rules. alphabet, amends, some of these tech companies because you want european tech companies to compete more. denies the political implications, but this is a big issue between the two. >> of course the same time the white house would love the companies not to have headquarters where they're keeping a lot of earnings. either way, the actually ruling comes out at 6:00 a.m. eastern time and know what the find is.
5:07 am
thought to be in and around a billion. the biggest so far to date has be 1.2 billion. it's not going to break the bank for apple. this is much more significant that's going to move the share price in the short-term for apple. i do think it's significant if terms of symbolism and not only for apple, but also for ireland. this is embarrassing for them. >> they've been courting this companies for years. >> they thought they tidied up their own domestic tax already. this ruling says it's not. it's embarrassing for them. hurts their aid and abbility to businesses. and after brexit, this will annoy people being told what to do in terms of their tax systems. they thought they had already sorted out. >> brussels telling national government. the whole issue. live in brussels this morning. we'll go to her in just a few minutes where the decision will be handed down.

5:14 am
welcome back to "world wide exchange." very good morning to you. we are called higher just fractionally. 0.01% for the s&p. a fraction more for the dow. nasdaq called slightly higher. in general, it was the interest rate sensitive sectors like banks off the back of that more hawkish commentary from janet yellen on friday that did well. the other sector that did well slightly surprisingly was the energy sector. oil prices were off yesterday quite significantly. over 1.5%, but the energy sector did do rather well. today, oil prices expected to bounce back a bit. wti higher by 0.85%. 47.4 for wti. been a strong month for oil prices. for a developing story we've been watching this hour. major decision set to drop on apple. european regulators getting
5:15 am
ready to rule whether the tech giant should pay billions of dollars in back taxes. joining us from brussels on what we're expecting in 45 minutes time, julia. >> reporter: good morning, sara. as you're expecting, the european commission here expected to rule against apple. deeming that the tax arrangements they have with ireland are illegal. they amount to state aide. if that is the decision, they order ireland to give 1.3 million dollar of unpaid taxes or more. that's not an insignificant amount, but it's dwarfed by the estimated $19 billion estimate that j.p. morgan suggested the apple could be ordered to pay. now, if you compare either of these two amounts and compare that to the amount of cash apple has sitting overseas. over $215 billion.
5:16 am
it's nothing. j.p. morgan said the share price won't be affected, but the politics are more important. ireland has plenty of relationships they want the protect. apple said they will protest if they feel they're being treated unfairly. then you have the u.s. treasury. even as late as last week they said they believe the european commission are unfairly attacking u.s. nationals operating abroad here. they also reserve the right to retaliate with tax measures of their own. when we look at the number that gets announced here, if it's at the lower end, you can see it as a symbolic move by the european commission under pressure from ireland and under pressure from the u.s. if it's a big number, it's a bold move and sets us up for a landmark legal battle. >> we'll be waiting to see what that number is. aside from the specific number and what it means for apple going forward, what about the fact this is happening at all
5:17 am
for ireland because they had thought they tidied up the tax affairs sufficiently so this wouldn't come to such a ruling. >> reporter: no, you're absolutely right. this is an awkward situation for them. this tax case with apple dates back to decisions made 25 years ago, 1991, and 2007. so it is a historic deal. what it could mean for the tax arangsmentes currently is another suggestion. j.p. morgan said if it refers to current tax aranrangements it could be a hit. the follow through is very important on this. it is awkward for ireland and awkward for europe too. they want to attract u.s. multinationals and this sets up a far bigger battle. >> is what apple is doing unique to apple? they have 5500 people employed around the city of cork ireland. can you tell us a little more about what is at issue here and
5:18 am
whether it's an issue that other companies face as well? >> reporter: well, it's a great question, sara. it's not only apple. remember, you've got companies like microsoft that are making heavy investment, alphabet, google, of course that are also investing in ireland. so for ireland, this is very awkward. they want to protect those relationships. if you look at what the commission has done historically, they've already ordered apple to pay money to italy as well. it's not just apple's setup with ireland in focus. other european countries where it's operates. the spillover affecteffects cou far larger than just ireland. >> we will await that ruling from brussels. thanks for joining us this morning, julia chatterley. >> still to come, top countries in this country. plus soccer fans. this could be the craziest goal you've ever seen.
5:19 am
stay tuned. you'll want to see. before the break, let's get today's national forecast from jen carfagno. >> good morning. we're watching nice weather from the northeast to the front moving into the midwest bringing thunderstorms. big rain potential plus in the south we have a lot going on. glancing low today from what is right now tropical depression eight. going to bring extra rain fall on the order of a couple inches, but that's probably about the extent. today's rain is not because of that here in florida. nonetheless, we've got rain in the forecast. west coast looking dry. the northwest in seattle will be closer to average. very warm conditions continuing across the southwest. dallas has another dry day with heavy rain potential out there across texas. i'm jen carfagno with your

5:45 am
in the paper catching our attention this morning. my pick in the "washington post" titled a putin sponsored october surprise on the hints we might get more release of something. e-mails from russia. writing here perhaps they'll show the clinton decisions. tongue and cheek, but got to be a serious concern. this devlves into this whole ne dimension with russia widely believed to have cyber hacked certain campaigns, including the release of the democratic national committee e-mails and others. >> also tongue and cheek to the aspect of this is what we're
5:46 am
focused on of the top issue. are we going to focus on the fundamental sgls it could be damages. >> it could be, but it's tongue and cheek to the possible list. >> i recommend the piece because it's a serious look at why russia would do this, is russia doing this, what the history of russia doing this is because it is extremely unusual. >> my pick foe dos on a further aspect of this campaign. really piqued my interest this morning. how healthy are clinton and trump. voters should not have to decipher a letter. rely on internet rumors or guess at the health of presidential candidates. anyone seeking the most powerful job in the world should hand at credible records for all voters to see. i pick this because i see it as a relevant factor when both candidates are around 70 years old, but it's so different in
5:47 am
britain. you never have health as an issue coming up. i don't think that's because we're necessarily polite to our political candidates or not, it's simply they're always much younger. that separates out because the lead at the prime minster the leader of the party most seats in the legislature. you never get elected when you're so old. retired by them. the system is different. >> do they have to release the tax returns. >> become an issue since panama paper. they all have to do it. health is never on the agenda. >> absolutely, i remember john mccain who turned 80 yesterday was running. then this question is, do you like sarah palin because he's sort of hold. >> it's a legitimate question. we're approaching the top of the other. team is getting ready for "squawk box." kayla joins us. >> nothing, you lose, god day, sir. >> good morning guys, it's a great day to be on "squawk box." the one thing that i am most excited about is that we have
5:48 am
the one and only wilfred frost joining us later today. -- which is technically an historically the weakest month of the year for stocks. so we'll talk about that. what to expect in september. what to expect when you get that jobs report. we have a very interesting guest to talk about, this recent debate on mylan the epipen drug pricing. the chair of pennsylvania ethics and policy division. he's been a close adviser too many a government official on million issues so we'll talk to him about how obamacare has become basically a monopoly in so many counties across the u.s. as well as this issue of drug pricing. a lot of interesting conversations coming up on "squawk box." wilfred, i know you'll be here if many of those too. >> i'll be there as quickly as i
5:49 am
can. we look forward to "squawk box" in 12 minutes time. when we come back, the u.s. markets breaking out of their functi fung. what will today's trading a bring, daryl cronk weighs in next. you're watching first in business, worldwide.
5:50 am
5:51 am
welcome back to "world wide exchange." a developing story we're following this hour. the european commission expected to rule that apple received illegal state aide from ireland. the tech giant's tax arrangements are found illegal, it could be ordered to pay billions in back taxes. cnbc is all over it. julia chattily is in brussels where the heart of the european commission is delivering this verdict. let's discuss markets here
5:52 am
state side. futures called higher, all be it slightly. yesterday we saw half a percent gain gains and.25 for the nasdaq. pretty much flat as you can see. joining us now, daryl chronk. guilty or not guil good morning to you. thank you for joining us. yesterday we saw banks lead the charge. is that justified? if we do get a hike going forward. >> that's good for financials as a whole. i know you've talked a lot about being one of the most underperforming sectors. faced a lot of headwinds. >> i'm just wondering on that about the rate hike outlook. if we get a solid jobs number and the expectation right now is, what, around 200,000 again for the month of august.
5:53 am
if we get that, does that put september on the table firmly for a rate hike? >> we don't think so. we think september is a bridge too far. the language has changed lately from kind of the if they do another rate hike to when, but september there just isn't enough data. to your point, sara, the only issue could be if the job's number on friday comes in really hot after a 255,000 and 292,000 jobs report. then it does put the probability on the table, but we think the equation is more like december or maybe even next year. we've been saying all year we think the fed is on hold this year and does not do a rate hike. so december has kind of shifted after jackson hole to more of a 50/50. >> when you look at all the r reaction. it's only the dollar responding in significant fashion. was this a temporary move where we overreacted a bit to the
5:54 am
content janet yellen was saying, and, in fact, is there no change really from what she's expected to do and that's wait for a decedent print in terms of data. >> i think a couple of things there. number one, the reason december makes more sense or even next year is you get past money market reform, which happens on october 14, which has put an increase in the short side of the yield curve. you get past seeing on october 28 q3 gdp which we know q1 has been soft. looking for a stronger print there and get rates. washing money ashore has to get
5:55 am
