like tim cook of apple hosting a recent private fundraiser. nonhappenle fundraiser. private fundraiser for hillary clinton. the influence these guys have on their own employees is quite significant. i suppose the question i have on it though is if this election will follow that course because it's such an anti-establishment theme in it. not dissimilar from the brexit vote. we see jamie dimon come over and various others and that backfires. if creos do come out, could wor the other way. study shows ceos have a impact. >> does seem like corporate america is playing a roll of having a voice. giving the diverging views from hillary clinton to donald trump. >> absolutely right. still ahead on "world wide exchange," the bulls looking to keep their charge going. the s&p coming off best week since july. joining us next e jeffrey

5:53 am
we've gone italian referendum coming up. that's a key focus for the fed. remember how big a brexit issue was for the fed. it was looking at what interest rates might look like in the second half of this year. that could be an issue that weighs on the fed's perspective in addition too many other factors around the world. one is earnings expectations are pretty high right now. one of the widest gaps between forward expectations and actual result s since 2009. the fed may get concerned the expectations are stretched in the stock market. >> despite the brexit fears, we've seen the s&p gain 4% from memorial day to labor day. if you're an investor and got out of stocks because of the brexit related tax returns, where would you put your money now? >> it's a great we. technology stands out as a consistent winner in the markets. the financial sector is increasingly attractsive.

it's been lagging all year here and will abroad. lately started to turn the corner and moved a bit higher. in part for highest interest rates from the fed. really important for the financials, but disappointing sector for a while. might be an interesting value opportunity for investors. >> still high beat. can you describe it as a value sector. >> well, it is cheap. i mean, if you take a look at valuations relative to the rest of the market, it's been beaten down for good reason. the difference is mainly the issues aren't so much around credit this time. they're around the income statement. the fact is as interest rates remain low, every one of those loans rolling off and over has rolled over at a lower interest rate. that could change. maybe even lift a little could be just the dwood news that sector has been waiting for. >> much discussion over the summer about the fact we were hitting new highs in u.s. equity market r markets on low volume.

the question as we come back after labor day when volumes pick up will they maintain. how much confidence can you take from factors such as last week, disappoint job number, oil prices sliding and markets going up. >> yes, one toch interesting things in is taking a look at individual investors. individuals weren't the reason stocks had moved higher. it's been institutions, but interestingly we know individuals chase performance and the five-year record tends to be what they chase. that has just begun to turn back up again. we started to see five year returns if for stock market begin to improve. that's in part because of recent performance, but also because we dropped off august of 2011. that big debt ceiling debacle in the u.s. that said bear market send global markets into a bear market five years ago. the point is individuals may finally begin to turn around and buy in september and october. certainly risks to the markets.

might be even heightened risk as we come out of the summer, but individuals may come in and give the rally a second win. >> if we pivot to commodities. saying they are going to cut down on steel production. one of the reason we have been seeing depressed prices is china overproducing commodities. is this time to get bullish. >> i believe it when i see it. the problem is china there's so much employment and manufacturing production tied to metals they've had a very hard time pulling capacity back. they want to. they continue to talk in that direction. their actions have been lagging. they haven't really curtailed excess capacity to the degree they would like to. merging business together. haven't really seen the employment pull back there. expect that to continue over capacity for some time. >> thank you very much for joining us this morning. that is it for "world wide exchange" today. a lot of things to focus on. particularly mna deals.
