5:00 am
earnings, earnings, earnings, that's the key word today as we await a flood of corporate results. big tech in focus. alphabet, amazon, intel and microsoft all among the major companies reporting results today. we'll tell you what to look for. and we're serving up an order of beer and wings for breakfast. it's thursday, october 26, 2017, "worldwide exchange" begins right now. ♪
5:01 am
good morning warm welcome to "worldwide exchange" on cnbc. i'm wilfred frost. >> i'm court couney reagan in f sara >> pleasure to have you with us. we did see declines yesterday of about a half percent across all three of the major averages. today we are bouncing back a bit. the dow up by 20 points or so. worth noting that all 11 sectors of the s&p were lower yesterday. a broad selloff. telcos taking the brunt, down more than 2% ten-year treasury note above 2.4% this week if we have a look at it this morning, it's still year yields slipped a bit 2.44 yesterday 2.42% today. looking at what's going on overseas asian equities mixed overnight we saw mixed market in china south korea down a half percent. shanghai up about a third of a percent. and we saw in japan the nikkei
5:02 am
led by financials and automakers the messaging service line up 17% on earnings. that was one i wanted to point out. we also got data out of south korea where the gdp grew 1.4% in the third quarter. that's the fastest pace in seven years. the kospi down about a half percent. hyundai up about 7.4%. cross currents in that market. looking at europe. we did see that region lower yesterday. ftse down about a percent. right now mostly higher across the board in europe ahead of the ecb. the dollar didn't do much yesterday. not doing much today we have the pound moving, 0.4% lower. as you can see, pretty much flat against the euro and the yen as courtney mentioned, focused on the ecb decision coming out on "squawk box." oil prices have been flat, again
5:03 am
not doing too much exactly flat this morning. oil prices down a half percent yesterday. today just fractionally lower. 52.2 for wti. we just got some new comments from the saudi crown prince he says the aramco ipo will still take place next year and the valuation of the company could top $2 trillion. the crown prince also said that saudi arabia is working with all oil producers to rebalance the global oil market. david einhorn is calling a comeback he says value investing is poised to make a significant recovery like it did after the dotcom bubble. >> from time to time when value investing gets out of focus, people question, hey, is this ever going to work again the last time it happened was around 1999 when everybody was talking about eyeballs like the new paradigm for investing. and that didn't end very well. >> joining us on the cnbc news
5:04 am
line, guy adami, "fast money" trader how are you? >> very well how are you? >> very well, indeed this comment from mr. einhorn, it presumably can't come back until we have a big market correction >> it's interesting you say that if you read between the lines, he's saying passive investing now is akin to what people were talking about in 1999. i think what happens in passive investing is that it lifts all boats, stocks become sort of grouped together you can't cull the good from the bad. if you listen to what he's saying, i think he's saying we're on the verge of this passive cycle running its course and seeing an environment where you can pick stocks that go up and stocks that go down. >> the value part of that equation would require a pullback on that note, when we see the
5:05 am
selloff we saw yesterday, half a percent is not too worrying. but very broad all 11 sectors lower does that give you bigger cause for concern? >> it does as you know, i'm always concerned, but i will tell you, yes, it does two, if you look at the two days prior, you know, you had benign markets, actually slightly higher you had the fix which started this whole move around 10. it traded above 13 at one point yesterday. so you had a climbing vix, yesterday was the first day you had a significant -- let me emfra e emphasize significant is not significant like the old days, but half a percent to the down side you had the three-day steady climb in the vix, all the sectors lower yesterday. maybe we're at the beginning of something. at the beginning of something is earning season, and we're right there in the middle of it. >> if you're not massive, obviously you're active and
5:06 am
looking for different places to make money that's what david einhorn does that's how he makes his money. we have a big day coming up for earnings what are you looking for what should investors be positioned ahead of all of these names, particularly the big tech guys after the bell? >> tech guys are fascinating that's where everybody has been and where everybody thinks there's no lose situation. if you look at the industrials that have reported, the numbers have been outstanding, but if you really start to examine them and get the microscope out, what you'll see is in a name like caterpillar, great numbers the third time this year they raised guidance. but you also had a significant inventory build amongst their people amongst their dealers. you have to wonder, is this inventory build the peak of something? people are looking for something, it might not be there on the back end. that's concerning. in terms of earnings, don't necessarily look at the numbers.
5:07 am
look at the price action of the stock on the back of these numbers. that's what i'm watching if you get what you deem to be great earnings, but bad price action, maybe the market is finally telling you something to mr. einhorn's point. let me tell you one other thing, passive investing is great passive investing that turns into active is not active on the way up it's active on the way down. >> well, guy, there we go. that's a quote that will go down in history >> mark this day >> mark this day >> done. >> guy, thank you very much. pleasure to speak with you >> have a great show there's a pair of economic reports on today's wall street agenda weekly jobless claims out at 8:30 a.m. eastern, followed by september pending home sales at 10:00 a.m. in europe, we are going to get an ecb rate decision keep an eye out for that that's about 7:45 a.m. eastern time that will be followed by news
5:08 am
conference from ecb president mario draghi that happens at 8:30 a.m. eastern. today is the single busiest day of earnings season with 67 companies in the s&p 500 reporting. the list includes comcast, the parent of cnbc, conocophillips, ford, time warner, u.p.s., southwest airlines and twitter those are before the opening bell after the close alphabet, amazon, gilead, intel and microsoft. it is going to be a big day. lots for us to follow. sticking with earnings, abi reporting higher third quarter profits. landon has the details on that one. good morning >> the world's largest brewer out with results the stock moving lower on what was a mixed quarter. on the positive side, abi developed 4% revenue growth and 14% profit growth thanks to a higher synergy target and the largest brands, corona, stella artois and budweiser total volumes fell mainly due to
5:09 am
weakness in the u.s., where shipping to wholesalers was hampered by the hurricanes in florida and texas. all of the buzz in the report is brazil ab inbev saw profits rise in the second largest market in nearly two years as price hikes compensated for selling less beer in a statement the company said they remain cautiously optimistic and confident in the ability to accelerate growth there. the shares of ab inbev are down about 3% in early trading. back over to you >> landon, thank you very much for that other earnings in europe lots of banks reporting over there. shares of barclays under serious pressure the company reporting a weaker than expected pretax profit of 1.$1.46 billion. the bank's bottom line was impacted by lackluster performance at the corporate and investment bank including a 34% drop in fixed income revenues. the move really relative to expectation within trading the equities performance was
5:10 am
disappointing. the earnings call is happening at the moment. they're trying to focus on targets for r.o.e. in 2019 and 2020 this is the third disappointing quarter in a row hard for investors to believe those forecasts. jes staley said in the first quarter of bad results in q1, having a couple of good ones last year that he's not going to get worried about one quarter of bad results. it's been three now. certainly some concern there for him the key factor is he's waiting for the decision on that whistle-blower case, which could be any day now shares sharply down. extended the move down now 7%. the earnings call started about 40 minutes ago down 5% before the earnings call. deutsche bank profits are more than doubling expectations. the german lender reporting a third quarter net income of 7 8 $7.68 million verses 3.$3.32 million. cost cuts helped fuel profits.
5:11 am
still, trading revenues came in weaker than expected the bank's cfo addressed that a few moments ago on cnbc. >> fixed income markets, we perform very much in line with our peers. revenue performance was down 24%. if you take the same segmentation as our peers have, which is fixed income sales and trading and the financial segment, so 24% reflects the market environment we're in. in equities, you're correct, we had a weaker quarter than some of our peers that reflects the idiosyncratic environment we found ourselves in at the end of last year, particularly in prim finance which has been a lagging indicator as we rebuild balances and rebuild margins in that business we think we're seeing progress there. that leads to some confidence about the future >> that the the new cfo, mr mr. von moltke the ceos of both banks m cryan
5:12 am
and mr. staley, taking the helm under similar circumstances, bigturn aroubi big turnarounds, but there's pressure on both ceo. santander reporting a 14% drop in q3 profits the bank blaming one-off restructuring costs due to the acquisition of banco popular one caveat for all of these stocks, they have all recovered year-to-date verses a year ago european banking share prices have had better performance year to date than a couple years ago. still some disappointing results as shown by the share price moves today. >> you're not done yet you have a big interview later today with the bank of america ceo, brian moynihan. tease us a little want will y what will you be talking about >> this is the first interview since q3 earnings. they have performed well in that
5:13 am
the point people want to here is deposit pricing. we had a couple of rate hikes. how much of that will be passed on we did see some pressures in numbers. we want to hear if we keep seeing this rate hike cycle, when does that start getting passed on to customers their cost control continues to be very good investment in digital banking continues to show results. we'll talk about that. prospects for tax reform for sure also generally what we just discussed with mr. adami is there concern in the marketplace with these levels w tightening happening ecb meeting will happen just before i speak to brian moynihan as well. we'll talk about that changing environment and whether there needs to be a bit more -- whether there's complacency in the market with these levels >> there's a lot to talk about i hope you get a lot of time. coming up, hanging up on nokia. the stock falling hard on earnings we're digging in on those numbers. and things got ugly. that's what nelson peltz says happened at p&g.

welcome back to "worldwide exchange." commerce secretary wilbur ross talking taxes yesterday on cnbc. ross says lawmakers could potentially strike a deal that includes caps on deductions and talked about when we could see real tax reform. >> it's hard to put an exact time denomination on it. congress is so process driven rather than results driven but it will be soon. >> the commerce secretary added while he wants to see a tax reform passed this year, the substance of a bill is more important than speed the house is expected to vote on the 2018 federal budget later today. tracie potts joins us now from washington with more good morning
5:25 am
this could send the budget to the president's desk not only as a spending plan for the nation, but it also creates a 1$1.5 trillion opportunity for tax cuts that's really the next thing that lawmakers want to get into. the president says except for those two republicans who have been outspokenly critical of him, he insists the rest of the party is on the same page when it comes to tax cuts, we just don't know what page that is, because we have not seen it yet. it will be next week before we see that legislation a couple of things of interest, ivanka trump has been on capitol hill pushing for the child tax credit to be expanded. that's been a pet issue of hers. the other thing is 401(k)s, retirement accounts. the president tweeted last week they wouldn't be touched but then he said yesterday they may be up for negotiation. the idea is that if they severely restrict tax-free contributions, lower the amount you can contribute tax-free,
5:26 am
that's more tax money coming into the government to balance this big tax cut that the president is looking for so, it sounds like lots of negotiation on the table on how to get tax reform done they're try doing it quickly, but that process really starts today by creating the opportunity for tax reform with this budget that the house is voting on later today. >> tracie potts, thank you very much for that. tax reform one that's hot on our radar. still to come, the top stories and a round up of the global markets. get credit, today is the busiest day of the earnings season we'll get you ready for the jam-packed day that's comg inup you're watching "worldwide exchange" on cnbc.

5:33 am
joining us is jan kniffen. thanks for being with us let's start with amazon. we'll hear from them after the close. we're going into the holiday season you liked the stock for a while. what are you hoping to hear from amazon >> it's hard not to like amazon when amazon has a zero cost to capital, i don't expect to hear anything unusual from amazon i think they've been moving on to private label and apparel they have gotten nike to sign on as a partner at least on a test basis to bring in more brands. i expect to hear them talk about brands, what they'll do in grocery. but, you know, either amazon or alibaba takes over the world we're not sure who yet right now in the u.s. it looks like amazon. i don't know what they could tells that you we would all decide to walk away. they would have to tell us growth was really slowing down
5:34 am
i don't envision hearing that. >> i don't either. not that they tell us much, but they don't need to that stock price keeps moving higher and higher. you mentioned nike and their partnership deal with amazon they have a big investor day yesterday. mark parker was on cnbc. you joined us to talk about that what happens when and if nike's plan to go direct to consumer takes off what does that mean for the wholesale partners nike has? they have macy's, kohl's, foot locker, that's 70% of their business if direct to consumer goes up, what happens to those retail partners >> i've been telling you for a long time that brands win, third party sellers lose this is not anything different nike can take sales out of those third party players, bring it in-house, sell it direct to consumer the return on investment goes up when retailers do that, they're
5:35 am
basically losing roi as they move online. nike is doing what they should be doing they want to put just enough in the third party players to get full price selling and first markdown selling they want to do everything else themselves direct online at higher returns they don't have to sell it wholesale when they sell direct to consumer. i think everything he told us yesterday is exactly the right thing for nike to do the only question is can he deliver? i think they can deliver if there's a question out there, nobody walked out of that meeting, nobody heard him talk yesterday on cnbc that didn't say if they can do what they just said they can do, i want to own the stock. the people not buying it are saying i don't believe they can do what they just told us they can do >> back to the amazon discussion in terms of the fact that we heard them pushing more severely into business retail earlier in the week is that priced in to the likes of staep astaples already or not
5:36 am
>> gosh. i have a hard time believing that that is priced in to anybody. it's certainly not priced in to staples. so, yes. i think that's a big problem for the world at large i don't think everybody is reacting to that yet you know, once they see it actually happening, the reaction has to come. >> i spoke briefly with richard baker, the chairman of hudsons bay company on tuesday after they announced that deal to sell the lord&taylor flagship, the shared office space. it helps them reduce their burden of debt, but what does that mean for retail when lord & taylor is selling their space to millennial retail office space >> it's the uberization of the world. this is what we all think is happening. things working with the younger millennium consumer that are digital that have zero cost to
5:37 am
capital can go out and buy anything it's not just amazon it's uber, weworks when you see somebody like weworks who nobody heard of a few years ago, come in and spend 8$850 million on a store i thought was worth 650, that's an impressive ability to spend. i don't think it says anything good about retailing at least it says something about the value of the good real estate out there >> jan, thank you very much. appreciate you being here us with i'll see a lot of you in the months to come jan kniffen. >> thank you very much more stocks to watch shares of barclays under pressure the company reporting a weaker than expected pretax profit, 1.$1.46 billion. the bank's bottom line was impacted by lackluster performance at its investment bank revenues worse than some of the u.s. investment banks.
