5:02 am
fall the nikkei down 1% the domestic chinese market, the shanghai composite losing 2% it's down 30% in a year. as you might imagine the european market as well, kind of a similar story. a lot of red on the screen we are seeing the european markets down not as much as asia. if you want to find some of that silver lining, but there you go. a lot of red across the board. let's try to make sense of this and where we may be headed and bring in jeff hirsch from probabilities fund management. >> good morning. >> what's going on >> well, it is the end of that -- >> how is that for a genius question what is happening? suddenly stocks stink. >> it's a midterm year we had october yes, it's the beginning of the best months, there's a little lag here we had great months up until october. we have a lot of things going on in the world the trump tariffs, the fed, now
5:03 am
they're backing off a bit in some rhetoric out there. some of the housing and auto -- >> housing has been terrible >> corporate earnings are under. tactical things are going on i see a supportive pattern, that might be constructive if we can clear the highs of november and hold the october lows. >> let's dig into that more what we're looking for is a reason to believe that stocks will stop going down soon. a couple of dow stocks which are down nearly 30% from their 52-week highs. bluest of the blue chips anything you see that can give us a pause >> the fact that everyone is getting negative and the sentiment turned from being super positive to being more questionable not enough bears yet, but still getting there. the fed, you know, that's the biggest thing. we've been talking about this
5:04 am
mo for months i don't know if you caught the dallas fed chat. >> yep >> he was backing off a bit. if the fed can say, you know what, i think we may have tightened enough, or hold off a bit that would be the most bullish thing for the stock. >> the powell put. >> yes >> you think that's -- that this market -- i don't want to call it carnage >> it's not market carnage >> no. we're still up for the year on the dow. we have to remember that but only 1.2%. i think the bigger risk is the stocks everybody loved, the f.a.n.g.s, the apples, the amazon, they are now all in bear markets, down 20% from their high if your star linemen are all injured on the sideline -- >> like the giants on the field, i mean >> who will turn the team around >> nobody, you can't run without
5:05 am
linemen, but you need new linemen. we need new leadership it hasn't fleshed out yet. we'll bounce around here first half of december is weak we're looking for a thanksgiving rally here typical setup coming into thanksgiving, wednesday and friday before and after. bullish, then we get into the year-end stuff we'll need some performance out of retail. we will need backing off from the fed. >> everybody is still optimistic for the holidays we're at 4.5%, 5% jump in retail sales. the point i made about bonds, at least credit doesn't appear to be getting more expensive. >> the yield curve is not threatening inversion as much as it was we are higher on the longer term and the shorter rates have been held at bay. it's a testing situation we are retesting some lows testing guts and confidence in the market when a few more people throw in
5:06 am
the towel -- >> you think we need to see one more flush, one more wash? >> we may be getting that. this may be part of that >> right side of an inverted head and shoulders, the right side of the bottom then we clear the november highs, the 200-day and build some base. that would be constructive >> jeff hirsch, thank you very much >> thanks. new developments following the arrest of carlos ghosn shares of nissan, renault and mitsubishi are trading lower today. nissan down 5.5% renault expected to hold a board meeting this afternoon the board will discuss temporarily replacing ghosn address ceo. the french government called for an interim management structure to be put in place all of this comes after ghosn was arrested yesterday in japan.
5:07 am
also today we continue to follow a developing story around deutsche bank. shares down once again hitting another all-time low deutsche bank is off nearly 4.5% in german trading. the bank is being drawn deeper into a money laundering scandal involving denmark's largest bank shares are down nearly 50% in one year the biggest bank in germany down a half in a year's time. the semiconductor chipmakers are under pressure chinese regulators launch a sweeping anti trust probe there. eunice yoon is live for you in beijing with more on that story. >> thank you very much the question that the u.s. business community has been asking today is what is the moment investigati motivation behind this investigation. chinese authorities said they uncovered massive evidence of anti compettiitive behavior by
5:08 am
micron, as well as samsung and hynix. they have not provided any specifics at all and that is one of the reasons why so many people have been asking questions this is not the first time these companies have been investigated they dominate the d-ram market they have 95% of it. they have seen these investigations, but in china it's different because the p perception is when the chinese are pursuing a foreign company with an anti monopoly investigation, the process is not very transparent and you don't know what motivations are. that's raising questions among companies. in the middle of all of that there is this heightened sensitivity among american companies right now about what has been described as
5:09 am
qualitative measures by the chinese. are they trying to take -- is this going to lead to chinese retribution for micron one analyst i was talking to described this as micron being used as political football, that's because micron has been at the center of this tech battle the company had announced that it was -- that it felt it was having its technology stolen by a chinese state company. the u.s. government has already issued indictments backing micron so because of all of that, that has also been just leaving a lot of open doors as to whether or not this is just a part of the tit-for-tat trade war. >> another big centerry fr stor. between deutsche bank and this, we have a lot going on today thank you very much. also there is a pair of retailers for you to watch today. let's get to frank holland with this morning's stocks to watch

5:12 am
5:13 am
after yesterday's big drop, if you were waking up and turning on cnbc and hoping for green on the screen, that's not the case we are seeing dow futures down
5:14 am
triple digits. look at all the f.a.n.g. stocks. they're all in the red in fact, as a group, got them in a group on my screens, they are down 13% on average in just a month. 21% on average this quarter. it's been a tough go for the former market leaders. it's not just technology stocks. you also want to watch the cryptocurrencies bitcoin again down today plunging below 4500. bitcoin now at the lowest level in 13 months this morning the live trade there, off more than 5% to 4,476 on the coinbase exchange. in england, pressure continuing to mount on theresa may an her brexit deal willem marx is joining us now with more from london. >> brian, thank you very much. i want to give you a brief political history of the last week through the eyes of currency traders we have the pound here, cable against the dollar last week theresa may came back
5:15 am
with a deal between her negotiators and the brussels negotiate beors and what the die deal would look like then we had some people quit there were a number of people within the party saying they would like to oust her, and then the numbers have stabilized because they were not able to get the numbers for that then the dup, they are in the confidence and supply agreement, a coalition agreement with conservative parties in the parliament, they voted for the first time since last year's general election against the government it was a small finance bill related vote but this is a sign they are deeply unhappy with the proposals theresa may has put to the government here, to the parliament here, to the people here in the united kingdom in the days ahead, a lot to
5:16 am
watch in brussels ahead of the summit this morning, mark carney is talking to lawmakers inside the house of commons having to answer some tough questions about what a no-deal between the eu and the uk would mean not only for the markets but for the british economy more generally. >> willem marx in london, thank you very much. now let's bring in peter spiegel news editor at "the financial times. you guys have done a great job on this story. it's a complicated one on this side of the atlantic i'm sure it's equally complicated there as well. what are the next steps that our audience in the states needs to focus on from a financial perspective? >> well, there are two elements to watch as per usual with this. one is the brussels angle. one is the london angle. may will go to brussels tomorrow to nail down the future relationship document. it's basically the exit deal has been negotiated this is causing all the hubbub
5:17 am
brexiteers think it's too color to the eu. remainers think it's bad because it doesn't give the uk enough say. to that is angering people can she win people back by this future relationship with europe, this new document that says we will set up a trade relationship, we'll have autonomy and close ties with europe can they thread that needle on the brussels side? that's happening tomorrow. i think the main event is in london though she has survived for the time being a leadership challenge, they can't get these 48 signatures to oust her or have a leadership challenge, there's no votes right now in parliament to support the deal she's done at some point, it will have to happen the next three, four weeks, she will come back, bring her deal before parliament and have everyone vote on it on the hard brexiter line you have dozens of people within her own party who will vote against it on the remainer side, they will vote against it as well. then you have the dup, as your
5:18 am
reporter pointed out, also not supporting it. then you have the opposition labor party who will not support it she has very little support for this deal. if it's not passed by parliament we don't know what happens next is it a no-deal brexit, does she have to resign that's why we're seeing huge fluctuations in the pound, because nobody knows what will happen when she brings it before parliament >> we like binary outcomes in or no this happened, this did not happen willem and others have talked about the idea that we get another extension. literally the brexit can is kicked on down the motorway. do you think there is a chance, like this eu michel barnier, the chief brexit negotiator, wants to stretch it out to 2022, do you think that's a possibility >> let's define terms here is brexit itself going to be extended no
5:19 am
the fact is that everyone in europe is sick of this they do not want to deal with the brits anymore, and any have bigger fish to fry they're not only dealing with trump, russia, but now germany is imploding we're losing angela merkel so most european countries when you travel to the continent, brexit is a sideshow she need to focus on their own issues at home they need to deal with a vacant chair in germany they don't want to deal with brexit barnier is saying you guys can't do this, let's stay status quo for another year, two years, three years they are out of the eu, they have not say in the rules, but all the laws just stay as they are now that gives business a lot to of certainty, because they just keep functioning the way they are, it gives may more time to deal with her domestic, political problems maybe go to elections. that's what barnier is offering. it has a lot of appeal to may,
5:20 am
because it pushes the issues off down the line, but for the brexiters, they make it feel like we'll never be eu we'll be out in name only. we will never be able to break away, strike our own trade deals. even that sort of rope that barnier has thrown to may has gone down badly here in london again, we like binary decisions as you say, we like yes or no. markets like that. i'm afraid that even if we get may going to brussels, we have a summit this weekend, they graded that deal, we're not going to know what the end state is for several weeks now. >> i feel like it's the eighth season of a tv show with 100 different players, everybody is getting so complicated that they'll tune out we'll find out it's a huge story, thanks for putting it in a clear light for us peter spiegel, thank you happy thanksgiving >> thank you it is turkey time. the president's annual turkey pardoning is today, but there's

5:32 am
third quarte quarter earnings. tough run for the stock market overall dow futures indicating another triple digit drop off of yesterday's 400-point fall if we lose 1.2% today or tomorrow, whatever, the dow will have turned negative forever the year the dow is still up for the year, but only 1.2%. it's been a tough sled for a number of well known dow components six dow stocks are now down more than 20% from their highs. ibm, goldman sachs and caterpillar down nearly 30% from their 52-week highs. similar story today in the asian markets. japan down 1%. china's domestic market continues to get punched it's down 2% and the shenzhen, the nasdaq of china, it's down 30% in 12 months europe is also lower across the board. the majority of those markets in
5:33 am
the red today as well. here's the global commodity and currency markets oil, simply too much oil out there. we have that opec meeting coming up on december 6th a lot of opec, a lot of oil, and crude oil is down today to 57. and bitcoin is down big again. let's get a specific check on the f.a.n.g. stocks. this was -- was the market leadership certainly not anymore. if you put them in a basket, the f.a.n.g. stocks as a group, those five names, they are down 21% this quarter 13% in a month need market leadership let's bring in patrick palfrey from credit suisse as we referred to earlier, those were the linemen, if you will, of the market. those five stocks. they're on the sideline injured right now. it's hard to run the ball when
5:34 am
you don't have anybody big up front blocking will we see a rotation in market leadership or do you think those names can make a comeback? >> to your point leadership has been disrupted we believe that ultimately tech stocks will be leading the way their secular growth games are strong their business models are holding in quite well. the markets are vast over time they will deliver earnings that are superior to what we're seeing for the rest of the market. what's happening >> right now investors are trying to understand i'm hearing about a global dese decelerati deceleration the u.s. is showing signs of deceleration, are corporate profits peaking? they're trying to say should i be in stocks or not be in stocks are we going into recession. >> are we? >> from the data we look at, no. right now gd park next yep nexts supposed to be 2.5%. the trend from other variables,
5:35 am
average hourly earnings, pmis, things we look for are also not showing signs of recession so for investors wondering if we'll be higher 3, 9, 12 months from now, absent a recession the answer is yes. >> why is the market giving zero respect to the market beats? >> next quarter is expected to be 14%, down from 26% this quarter. that's still good. >> it's excellent. a couple years ago if you would have told me we're getting 14% earnings growth, we would have been happy suddenly 14% looks bad >> and it's later cycle. typically revenues are strong. margins should come in over time we don't expect them to go negative we have time for margins to move
5:36 am
higher when you have revenues growing 5%, margins adding to that, you get a stronger corporate back drop >> i guess the question is how much of this is the self-fulfilling prophecy of hearing talk of a global slowdown how much of what we're seeing is sell now ask questions later >> i think that's probably a good way of putting it concerns around trade are high concerns around global dese deceleration investors are saying step away right now, areassess and get bac in later >> is stepping away a bad thing? you have the trade fight, brexit fight, china going after micron technologies, deutsche bank down 50% on another money laundering scandal in denmark of all places all these things are hitting us from all sides is the only thing on the other
5:37 am
side profits and earnings? >> at the end of the day, fundamentals drive stock prices. >> psychology does work. >> may work in the short-term, but over the long-term the success of corporate businesses drives share prices. technolo technology, those are the bizzens that abizzen s th businesses that are successful >> what looks the most tasty or attractive to credit suisse right now? >> we prefer secular themes. technology is in that basket areas of internet retail, communication services those are areas we recommend clients take a closer look at. >> internet retail i know you're not an individual stock guy, we can discern a few big internet retailers out there. you like the group >> i like the group. >> we like the group patrick, always a pleasure

5:39 am
a company that created a fake travel profile of a woman, bought a bunch of stock photographs, bought followers and had people offer her real money to endorse products. she never existed. >> wow taylor swift signing a landmark new deal. she now has complete ownership of her catalog of songs moving forward. her previous hits, not so much taylor asked that any sale of universal spotify shares results in a distribution of money to their artartists, and the labela agreed taylor swift not only a talented artist but spectacular business person owns your catalog and helping out fellow artists, good work. ford wants to kill your new car smell. >> i thought we like new car smells >> i love it the company is filing a patent

5:41 am
5:42 am
5:43 am
it is a sea of red out there. have no fear, we found you a little green ahead of the holidays two dow components, walgreen and j & j posting slight gains in the early market that's where we are when whatever gains we can see is a big story. that's what we got dow futures down triple digits again. some of the biggest names in business shedding light on their top market worries let's get to jackie deangelis's latest survey.
5:44 am
>> the top risk factor, u.s. trade policy 35% said that that concerned them this quarter, last quarter 35% were worried about consumer demand when asked what they thought about the policy meant to their business, 75% said negative. when asked what congress' top priority should be next year, half said infrastructure spending a quarter said the focus should be on trade agreements on the fed, about 60% said they see a rate hike coming on december 19th for next year almost 46% said they see two hikes, 40% said they think we'll see three hikes. when it comes to the fed, rate hikes will impact the stock market and yields as well. so let's look at each of those on the stock market side of things, a notable shift. more than half of the cfos said they think the dow will fall back below 23,000. last quarter the majority were unsure the quarter before that they
5:45 am
thought the dow would surpass 27,000 for the first time. some of the confidence has eroded here. on yields, nearly all the cfos think the ten-year will be over 3% at the year end and the majority think it will be between 3% and three quarters of a percent. remember, as yields rise it tends to have a chilling effect on the stock market. so these two go hand inhand. on a day that we see the futures pointing to a down open, you need to think about some of these factors. >> we certainly do but given all the market we weakne weakness, can you come back with ten things people can feel good about right now? >> i certainly will work on that. >> a little holiday spirit thank you. let's find out what's coming up o rebecca quick, do you have any good news for us
5:46 am
>> i have some exciting news things we'll focus on today. lots of things that could move the market we have retail earnings, best buy, lowe's, ross stores, tjx, all will be reporting on our show that will give us a glimpse of what we can expect from the consumer we also will talk to dana telsey and brian neagle and we have a retail ceo joining us we will try to figure out what's happening. we also have numbers at 8:30 which will give us an indication of housing that's ban real weakness in the markets. all sorts of questions about housing. at 8:30 we get housing starts. estimates are for growth of 2.4% versus a decline of 5.3% that we saw last month that will give us indication of what's going on. and we'll dig deeper into the facebook story
5:47 am
a former board member will be joining us don graham was on the board for six years, from 2009 to 2015 he resigned back a few years ago because he turned 70, the mandatory retirement age i'm of the opinion that maybe some of the wisdom that goes with age would have been helped if someone like him had stuck around longer. we'll get his things -- his sense on where things stand now. he has known mark zuckerberg, he knows this company well. he will give us his take on what he thinks needs to happen next. and we'll focus on bitcoin way, way, way down at this point. tom lee will be coming on. last week tom lee cut his end of the year estimate from 25,000 to 15,000, obviously bitcoin has a long way to go from here we'll talk to him about why he thinks it will push higher before the end of the year, especially when you look at the
5:48 am
break-even point which is about $7,000 check this out, bitcoin at $4,400 we'll see if tom wants to lower that price target even lower all that coming up in a few minutes. >> this time last year bitcoin was at 9,000, on its way to 20,000, now below 4,500. >> last holiday season it was 20,000, should i be buying in here >> that's why it's a currency. currencies don't do that, unless you're in argentina or venezuela or zimbabwe where they have this inflation. currencies don't act like that it's acting more like what it is, a commodity. a crypto commodity looking forward to it. up next, major market challenges ahead one market pro says next year could be packed with more big risks to your money. we'll make both those cases. and random but interesting last night's monday night football game was packed with action ats ome got some incredible

5:52 am
