5:02 am
i think you have to keep that in perspective that this isn't markets soaring, it's not falling. and the nasdaq was only up fractionally for the week. so the dow did lead the charge. it's not that we're off to the races again. utilities are the best performing sector as well. >> that goes to the point i was going to make which is the resilience and the melt higher despite what was combined in treasuries last week. the dollar pulled back, those are signs of warning and pause in the reflation rally. but stocks did not heed those signals. will they next week? that's the question. the yield is firmly below that mark. >> and flirted of course with the 230 level. but a slip lower in yields came

5:05 am
pound led take over deal potentially falling through over the weekend. so the pound a little bit soft and the dollar for the most part a little bit softer but higher against the pound. the bigger move for the dollar is against the em currencies. and it's been much more the emerging currencies that have bounced back than in fact the major currency pairs. >> i would say a sign of overall risk appetite is going to be tested this week. >> the dollar having three weeks in a row of gains, slight gains having declines rather than off to the races. >> gold has been marching a little bit higher, eve in the face of rising stocks and is at a multiweek high now. we'll see where that goes. very busy week ahead. let's have an economic report on the agenda. durable goods and pending home sales.

you won't see these folks at the post office. they have businesses toun. they have passions to pursue. how do they avoid trips to the post office? mail letters, ship packages, all e servicic of the post office right on your computer. get a 4 week trial, plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale. go to and never go to the post office again. there goes my sensitive bladder. sound faliar? then you'll love this. incredible protection in a pad this thin. i didn't think it would work, but it does. it's called always discreet watch this. this super absorbent core turns liquid to gel, for incredible protection that's surprisingly thin. so i know i'm wearing it, but no one else will.
5:44 am
always discreet for bladleaks welcome back to "world wide exchange." my pick in the wall street journal titled "the illusory flaws of border adjustment." a right wing economist with a strong defense of the border adjustment tax.
5:45 am
here's how he says it will work and not be harmful. he says consider arproduct that costs $100 to import. a 12% border tax would raise the price to $25. the importer would pay the tax of and then have $100 left to pay for the cost of the import. a 25% rise on the dollar would reduce that import cost to $80. that's 100 divided by 125 and it would raise the domestic selling price to the original $100. it's the basic mathematics of why he says the dollar will strengt strengthen as much as the border tax happens and that will completely offset that for the retailers of the world. they're obviously concerned because foreign exchange is not an exact science and they don't think it will actually happen.
5:46 am
but he comes out and says they shouldn't worry and this will be a major tax savings to pay for a corporate tax cut. >> the one thing that's clear either way is a tax on the american consumer in favor of the american worker, either way you look at it. >> and he says it shouldn't result in actual price increases on the american consumer because it's going to be offset by the american dollar. the question is does that actually happen and can congress actually bank on that. >> we're approaching the top of the hour so that means the team is getting ready for "squawk box." it's a big one this morning. a special guest to tell us bouts. say no more, becky. >> that's right. it's griet see you. it's very early in the morning. 4:45 so i have a giant cup of coffee to get me through the morning. and you know sometimes we have a difficult time to get guests
5:47 am
ready because it's so early and people thinkya i'd be later in e show. 4:45 in omaha, guess who's here, ready to go. yeah. yeah. mr. buffett himself. warren buffett is here. >> what's the secret? is it the cherry coke? >> that does it. solved everything, actually. >> well, maybe -- i tell you what -- if you just sent me a question -- you want to ask the first question. >> i would love to. it's an honorer. was wondering given your ongoing stake in the bank, given the recent rally, why are you still holding it? >> yeah. it's the same metric i use for
5:48 am
buying any asset. it was a met rric that was hand down by esop, which is the present cash compared to the future cash and the cash you expect to get later on. he said a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. he didn't know what discount rate to use. boug but a bank is how much cash you're going to get between now and judgment day discounted. so there's no special trick in the valuation. there can be a problem in figuring out what's inside the bank and particularly with non-u.s. banks. that would cause us a real problem. otherwise i'm looking tat like it's coca cola or american express and how much is going to -- can come out of this business over the years and discounting it back to the
5:49 am
present value. >> andio you're still happy wi wells fargo now? >> we're not going to say anymore. we got a tease for the top. >> yeah, but you gave me a chance to speak with an absolot legend. sorry i went for a second one. >> that's all right. >> the button or two? >> no, a tease to find out what else we have coming up. but he's here and i never want to hear another complaint from any of our market guests ever. >> i second on that point. we'll be glued of course for "squawk box" which kicks off in 10 minutes time. >> i'll be more impressed if he watched the oscars last night. still to come big week for economic data and proposed economic proposals. we're back in a couple minutes. because i'm a woman,

welcome back to "world wide exchange." dow futures are down about 13 points, nasdaq down seven. this after 11 straight record closes for the dow. and global chief investment strategist and as impressive as the gains for stocks have been, bonds are also starting to rise, which means lower yields. can stocks and bonds continue to rise in tandem or are you getting mixed mesenings there? >> i think after 11 straight record sessions, you're going to have concerns when bond yields drop. again leading the u.s. lower. over 210 bases points over bunds. comparable development market type credit. the notion that the world is going to see higher disruptive bond yields led by the united states is taking a pause at the
5:53 am
moment. the great news on equities is that we ended last year at record high earnings levels already. that we were close to a 6% growth rate on eps. and getting to all time new record eps gains for all of 2017 is very possible even before any acceleration in the economy or tax cuts. >> you mentioned that we had record high earnings already. we pushed 11 straight record highs, closes of the dow already. but they have come in a more defensive nature. utilities the best performing sector last week. >> for the week. >> so you're not concerned that the record closes a slight gains each time and we're coming towards the end of this? >> what has happened since november with the sharp, sharp swing is very much focussed on tax policy, even on
5:54 am
infrastructurer spending and even that was a bit stretched. the drop that we have seen in bond yields to the extent it helps support utilities, staples, these sort of defensive bond oriented evaluations is helpful. but it shows that whole market was not terribly vulnerable and underneath us all, if we're managing to grow and we get tax cuts, i think we do reasonably well. we will not have a year where we came from collapse and a really steep drop of january/february from a year ago. >> do we need to be talking more about earnings, what we learned from the past quarter and what the outlook suggests? >> i think it's both. i'm surprised at how many people lookt add the oil price collapse and what has hap nds to earnings in the energy sector and call that an earnings recession when
5:55 am
it was really local. it's a related in industrial activity. the fact that we're back from that and that so many people are drawing optimism from that, it tells me there is a lot that was misunderstood about last year's economy. >> statistics for growth are looking better and the course valuations are lower. >> the problem is the currency. in the case of the euro, if you don't have a weaker euro, you may be getting it because you're covering short positions. you're seeinging it because of the carry trades because of concern about politics on the continent. and a good part of the rest of the world, if you believe that the federal reserve is going to do more than it is priced right now, the u.s. has issues too. it's pretty clear that if we were to look at stocks rel toov bonds, you can find market bond yields still with negative yields and if you avoid all that, we'll be in good shape.
5:56 am
>> president trump's first state of the union speech. >> focus on tax cuts and how it's financed. these basic issues on what sort of resolve is there? how broad? how big? and i don't know how much detail you get into in that sort of a speech. >> if the word border taxes comes up, is there potential for a big rise? >> that's a very difficult question to say exactly how much you get out of it. depends on what it includes. what is pealed back and whether it includes expenses for corporations. so many questions on this particular issue. whether there's a focus on financing domestic stimulus or not is a very key question right now. >> steven, thank you very much for joining us of city private bank. only 10 or so seconds left. for the next three hours. >> warren buffett on "squawk
