there a central bank in particular we know the central fed has been driving much of the action will they set the tone given the negative environment we've been speaking about over the past few months >> certainly, because the u.s. market is a little more dependent than the rest of the world. the support we have within europe is going to be more indicative of perhaps whether there is going to be ongoing support and we haven't seen much strength out of europe so far to date >> for many investors certainly in europe and around the world is there a situation right now where you can see germany taking steps on the economy or fiscal
situation that will jump start the economy there? >> yes, certainly. the last numbers we had out of germany were not as negative as people had expected. often people are looking for the delta at the moment. they are looking at those small marginal changes those last numbers beg slightly less negative did give people some reassurance about some underlying strength. certainly with the u.s. market as well, we are seeing strong numbers as far as wage growth and that sentiment still holding up >> with those mixed messages in mind, are there places investors should look for or stay away from given the idea there is this wait and see, we don't know where we are going approach to
the economies around the world >> i think one of the key things is we have seen the defensive sectors doing really well recently they have become more expensive relative to the rest of the market in the last couple of days, we've seen a big reversal into some of those value names and because they had got so stretched versus some of those more sentiment, more growthy names. the big question is, will that be sustained going forward or not. for us, we continue to be quite well positioned within some of the defensive sectors. also looking at where some of those names have become very good from an overall attractiveness perspective >> thank you, we appreciate it apple kicking off the fall launch event with a new pair of
iphones and wearables. new details on the highly anticipated apple tv plus video streaming service. >> we are excited to tell you that the first shows will be available on november 1.

the headlines. we were expecting hardware it is the key event to release watches and phones that $4.99 price point did surprise many who cover this company. the expectation had been around $9 disney's new streaming service is expected to be around $6.99 a month. certainly, some excitement about that and how apple is bundling this in with that one-year free if you buy mac or a new iphone we know that accounts for apple's sales. we have to look at some other hardware products until that is complete you can see it has had an impact on competitors companies like roku will be down lower even though they will be
carrying the new apple streaming service. there is this push/pull thing here >> we saw a huge reaction from the likes of disney, netflix, roku you mention the hardware side of things it is still important. is this new handset. the 11 iteration is it going to be enough to get me to upgrade my old iphone 6 model? >> it may. the 10, and now the 11 will sell for $699. that is $50 less than what the 10 r went for last year. also playing into some of the lower price competitors, particularly in china. while you would still have to
pay about $1,000 for the 11 pro or the pro max, you may be able to pay lower for earlier endations. they are banking on the fact that many people need to upgrade their devices. whether they go with some of these new models or they might go with some other modelopat toe holiday season >>hat got you excited about the event. products, the new ipad >> one thing that has been kind of not covered as much is the new watch, the 5 series watch will have this feature called always on. we've been talking about it here about how essentially the phone
display is on all the time you don't have to tap it or raise your wrist apple lowered the price for the 3 series to get more people to come into that you've seen a bright spot whether the watch or air pods. there has been a focus to make that market more accessible. we've seen that and interesting to see how that plays out in holiday sales. >> thank you so much when we come back, game over why shares of game stop may hav the controllers. and all work and no play at gaming centers and more on wework when exchange

walked around the show, two words come to mind electric everything is electric and the experience you think about software, updates, connectivity. in the same survey, the number one thing they have to do is put in an open digital platform to support that kind of experience. >> ginni rometty there, would you believe a small number of operators say they operate on a digital platform, about 18%. so also the problem of a trade war. how are we having open platforms when there is a trade fight still brewing. >> i'm curious, brand wise, the entire auto industry is built on the idea that consumers have loyalty to certain platforms, how do you think some of these
industry effects given the fact that they own high-profile brands >> they've already been disrupted. this is the next phase they need to accept. when you think about the house, it has become an eco system. the car has meant to become the future who is going to own that space is the question. whether the auto qualities find their way or whether it is a bunch of other startups. that is the big question that is hugely disruptive for the auto executives. quickly behind me, you might be interested in the harley davidson electric bike this is connected to the ibm cloud. all connected to that service.

>> welcome back. we are watching oil prices this morning. prices are higher as data shows u.s. stock fell more than twice the amount analysts expected crude took a sharp move after president trump announced he fired john bolton. tracie potts joins us now from washington with details. >> reporter: it was a sudden announcement now a discrepancy over whether
he was fired or resigned bolton said he offered his resignation. the president never asked for it he decided to turn that in after offering but president trump tweeting that he asked bolton to resign after strong disagreements over a number of issues including north korea, whether he should have met kim jung-un at the dmz, over iran and recently whether to invite the taliban to camp david for peace talks. bolton was against it. he is now out and there is already a short list of five people to replace him? >> who are some of those five people >> some are people in the administration, former national security advisor deputy national security advisor, representative to iran,

products we go now to beijing with the latest >> reporter: thank you, those tariffs which the chinese say are counter measures for the u.s. 301 investigation are now going to be suspended as of september 17 for a year. some are refundable. the chinese also said they could be adding more products to that list the products are mainly in agriculture and in feed and in drugs. the two sides are preparing for high-level discussions in october in washington. the foreign ministry said it hoped that the u.s. along with china would create, quote, favorable conditions for negotiations it is unclear whether or not this is a good will gesture aimed at the u.s because the chinese are grappling with serious issues.

china. a lot of revenues are being affected by the tariffs. they are feeling pinched at the end of the day, when they look forward they are worried about what they are seeing they said 2019 looks bad but without a deal 2020 could look even worse >> thank you we appreciate it to apple now, tim cook unveiled a host of new products a new iphone line up, updated ipads and watch and new details on the tv plus screaming service with a price that even undercuts what disney is preparing to launch next month. here is noted apple bull saying the phone is the most exciting prospect for apple >> their base is growing at call it 10% a year even though iphones were down 15% in the
past year. there is something bigger around the quality of their products. they are simply the world's greatest consumer tech product that is creating a fabric of tech around consumers that i think is dramatically undervalued by investors >> joining me now, analysts at rosenblat securities you are not quite as optimistic. take us through what you thought were the highlights and lagging headlines yesterday? >> sure. we were a little caution on apple because they are behind the 5g cycle if you remember, in 2012, apple launched the first 4g 5. every smartphone in china is
behind the 4g cycle. this year is different we are seeing most of the oems launching 5g aggressive. we believe that those chinese oems will take in market share in the high end and middle end second, this year, the upgrade for the new iphone is a little slower compared to the last couple of years. last year, you have iphone 8 8 plus upgrade to the 10 r this year, we don't have the new increase we think both face a little pressure and with this trade war, apple should face some
pressure that's why we think the market expectation for the 5g cycle it probably too high for next year. we believe apple numbers will come down. >> got you no doubt that some folks think the smartphone cycle is tapped out. the hardware side is a given increasingly, apple wants to call itself a services company apple tv plus coming out the arcade coming out. pretty soon, we'll be cutting a check every month to these guys. >> the service business actually grows pretty nicely year to year we believe tv sales still needs some time. that will not be a meaningful revolution we believe the service revenue heavily relies on their hardware
sales. talking installation base. we look at the iphone user growth is coming from a second hand iphone sales especially in the emerging market. those users don't contribute much to the service revenue. when the 5g smartphone launch by the android camp, especially middle end smartphone, they will take market share which will push the infoerphone installatin base to slow or even decline >> thank you for joining us this morning. >> thank you it has been a strong year for ipos with more than 100 companies going public it may be full speed ahead for wework sources say they are pushing
ahead with plans despite lack luster interest from investors and softbank wants it to shelf the ipo process. meanwhile, peloton is seeking to raise about $1.1 billion in its ipo in an sec filing they plan to sell shares between $26 to $29 a piece their road show could launch as early as today >> let's talk with john who is head of national markets and our own leslie pinker. leslie, we want to hear whether or not this environment for wework will kick off favorably >> i think the environment for wework is more a reflection on what is going on in the private
fundraising market they were able to obtain the valuation relative to what the markets were willing to pay for wework, that now seems a bit high public investors have even been turning up their nose to one-third of the level i think you are going to actually continue to see even more of this divergence as more of these of these unicorns on te market in terms of all of the cash that has been circumstanlating >> a reckoning a strong word there.
the idea that the ipo market has not been as strong as it was in the last couple of months as it was with levi and beyond meat. is the ipo environment from the underwriter area still healthy >> the demand is there we are seeing a continuation of filings. this window we are about to enter from post labor day, we've seen peloton going into a two-week road show you are seeing a lot of activity now until the end of theyear
so those type of companies are coming peloton, wework, two names in the news right now is there a sense whether or not one has a better shot at a good debut? we know the hurdles wework is facing right now >> sure. peloton is just starting its road show today. they operate in hardware, software, media, logistics they are all over the place. it will be interesting to see what investors are willing to pay at the range they set last night. that said, they have not had some of the major headline risks
wework had that caused investors to bulk. stemming from the large losses, business model as well as some of the corporate governance that concerns them about wework not to mention the fact that every day, we are seeing headlines about potential delays it is on it is off. they've bailed them out with private investment all of those things tend to spook investors. putting capital up in an ipo any ipo is a major risk investment >> today is september 11 an important day for all of us it holds an important day in the heart of drexel because you are a veteran oriented firm. >> we'll be memorializing those
on this day that lost their lives and those who went forward to fight to defend our freedom so we wouldn't have a repeat day like that. september 11 is significant day for us and our veterans. >> captain john martinko, retired. leslie pinker, we appreciate your in sights coming up, ever wish you could own a magical piece of olympic history. why the 1992 olympic dream team is trending decades later. and later on, how worried is jamie dimon about the risk of 0 interest rates we'll find out after this.
as a principal i can tell you this. when one student gets left behind, we all get left behind. this is a problem that affects each and every one of us. together with ibm, we created a whole new kind of school called p-tech. within six years, students can graduate with a high school diploma, a college degree, and a pathway to a competitive job. you know what's going up today? my poster. today, there are more than a hundred thousand p-tech students around the world. it's a game changer. it's how we bring hope to our patients- like viola. her team treated her cancer and strengthened her spirit. so viola could focus on their future. cancer treatment centers of america.
only in philadelphia with the stomp, shake campaign supporting the eagles and taco bell launching the vegetarian menu. releasing a statement saying other fast food restaurants are just dipping their toes in the space, they have long been in the space with the bean burritos being the second top spelling item >> what is their top selling item i do like taco bell. this meatless thing. if there was a place you were going to put meatless in terms of alternative meats, it is mexican food because taco meat is not discertainable.
that's the way to go. >> as a vegetarian i'm here for all of this >> you are and a philly person >> i am loving this block. power ball windfall in the northeast. they won like $100,000 magic johnson's game-worn jersey from 1992 goes up for auction today. a starting bid at $25,000 but the bidding is expected to surpass $150,000 >> that wouldn't surprise me if it goes for even more. the amount of money people spend especially for a big piece are
while i was in the navy, i decided that i wanted to go for electrical engineering and you need to go to college for that. if i didn't have internet in the home i would have to give up more time with my kids. which is the main reason i left the military. everybody wants more for their kids, but i feel like with my kids, they measurably get more than i ever got. and i get to do that. i get to provide that for them.
and stock offer for the london stock exchange buying refin tiff in a deal worth $27 billion. a bill that passed in the california state legislature in the senate that could spell trouble for companies like lyft and uber who rely on thousands of so-called gig workers, the bill would require more protections for more employees jamie dimon isn't expecting u.s. interest rates to hit zero, the bank will be preparing for it. the recent fallen rates had taken him by surprise after he predicted rates would rise last year markets now pointing to a stable open now our guests, jeff, we'll
start with you first markets are now 2% away from record highs again, interest rates seemingly back on the rise is that an all clear for the markets now? >> i don't think it is an all clear but short terms we are seeing it is interesting, you bring up the treasury curve the two-day biggest gain has moved up to lower prices we haven't seen a move since 2011 we saw more printed. that is a sigh of relief >> so mark, interest rates, have they bottomed out? have the move infinances moved
>> for the long end of the curve, b i would expect to go up the most interesting thing i have seen is this heavy rotation whether consumer staples which were rich. this year's worse performers were up big. you look at macy's and nordstroms high pe stocks underperforming what that means is that the market is reassessing whether a recession is actually right around the corner. the market seems to believe it is not >> what prompted it?
usually, there is something. there has to be a reason why there is a quote, unquote rotation even starting or one that has legs. was it interest rates that really prompted this whole get me out of the service stocks is. >> when you talk about repositioning going into the ecb meeting. yesterday was a great illustration what does that mean they are booking profits up nearly 2.5% getting ready for the end of q 3 and q 4. if we do see that trade execution. so this is a different set up than it was last year. we were kind of steadily grind being towards these record highs only to see a sell off is that something that happens
again? >> be mindful of the vix now above 16 optimistic as long as the trade tariff conversation remains optimistic >> mark, what goes on your shopping list with rates going the way you are talking about and ahead of rotation. companies include what >> the strongest part of thecour that's only 70% of our gdp consumer confidence is high, wages are growing. the consumer is strong but their buying preferences have changed. they are now more price conscious. you look at tj maxx and dollar general. tj maxx is really the best off priced retailer out there.
when all of that apparel doesn't get sold at nordstroms or other places, it goes to tj maxx and dollar general, most of their stuff are consumables. >> that does it for "worldwide exchange." "squawk box" picks things up now. >> ahead on the trade front, china puts out a list of items exempt and ipos with peloton. the company's valuation could hit $8 billion details are straight ahead california's senate just approved a bill that could be a direct threat to the business models of companies like uber and lyft it is wednesday, september 11.
18 years 2019 and "squawk box" begins right now. >> live from new york where business never sleeps, this is "squawk box. >> good morning. welcome to "squawk box" on cnbc. i'm becky quick. andrew is off today. we've been watching the u.s. equity futures you'll see the dow futures are indicated up again the dow has been up all week the nasdaq was down after a third session in a row nasdaqdown s&p indicated down as you mentioned, a lot of technology stocks have been rotating >> for two
