5:00 am
good morning. the trump rally, the dow cli climbing to an all-time high. >> and it's singles day in china. a live report coming up. >> and disney's results falling short, but ceo bob iger still feels bullish. it's november 11, 2016, veterans day. "worldwide exchange" begins right now. good morning. welcome to "worldwide exchange" on cnbc.
5:01 am
i'm sara eisen alongside dom chu who is in for wilfred frost. >> happy veterans day. thanks to all who have served and all who are serving in the military right now. >> i echo that as well. >> let's get to the markets. after quite a rally for the dow, finishing at a record high. the s&p not there, and the nasdaq has been the underperformer all week long. it's only up about 3% so far this week versus the dow's gain of 5%. right now the dow futures are up 21. s&p features down 2.5. nasdaq futures down more, 43. so this rotation out of tech continues. the bond markets are closed today in honor of veterans day. let's show you where the ten-year note yield finished yesterday. just to give you a sense of the story of the week, which is yields shooting higher. look at the end of that chart, jumping to 2.1. big selloff in u.s. government
5:02 am
debt has been a key theme in the wake of the trump surprise victory. what was that druckenmiller quote from yesterday? rates could be like a beach ball submerged underwater? they could shoot up quickly in a short amount of time. >> that's something we'll talk about in a moment. let's look at stocks in europe. we are seeing at least a little bit of -- we saw a little bit of strength, now mixed. the dax in germany only up by a quarter of 1%. the cac in france down by a half percent. the ftse 100 in the uk down by about 1%. the ftse mib in italy up by a half percent. the spain ibex down about three quarters of a percent. as far as asia, also a bit of a mixed picture. the nikkei in japan after a massive move on thursday up by 0.2%. hang seng and hong kong off by a third. the shanghai up by three
5:03 am
quarters of a percent. >> read on business sentiment on japan, japanese manufacturers confidence rose to a 15-month high in november. that's an encouraging sign for the japanese economy. let's check on the overall markets here. oil prices, which did participate a bit in the rally, are a bit soft this morning. down 0.8%. under $45 a barrel. they've been in a narrow range. brent is down less than a half percent. gasoline is higher. the dollar has been strong. dollar/yen has followed treasury yields higher. this is a currency pair at one point was down to 1.01. >> we were talking about 100. >> when the futures and dow were down more than 800 points. what a turnaround. at a 3 1/2 month high on dollar versus the weaker yen.
5:04 am
as for the euro/dollar, 1.0855, that reflects a stronger dollar. the pound strong, marching to its own beat, 1.2658. gold having a weak week despite uncertainty and surprise. it is down another percent. add it all up, dom, who observations. number one, the tide has turned in terms of sentiment so sharply, bullish around the u.s. economy, bullish on growth policies that we could see from trump and republicans in congress like infrastructure and defense spending, tax cuts. >> absolutely. >> that's causing the jump of yields and in certain sectors like financials. >> materials. >> we will talk more about this, but the infrastructure play. copper is up on a winning streak like i haven't seen in ages. >> we have a weekly chart of copper. the best week for copper since the early '80s. >> between that and you talk
5:05 am
about the strongest moves in material stocks like martin marietta materials, they make construction aggregates, think asphalt, concrete. >> billiuilding stuff. >> yes. >> that's one observation, the sentiment has changed and enthusiasm. the other is how quickly it's happened and how quickly these moves are happening. another 6.5% rise in copper. it's something cramer warned about at the top of his show. yes, it's good to have this sort of renewed spirit. this was a market looking for a catalyst, but it makes people skeptical when it happens so far so fast. >> jim has been talking about the construction side of things. we'll hit on that throughout the course of the show. the dow hit a record high yesterday, at least at the close. investors adjusted positions
5:06 am
after an election that trump won. pershing square's capital's bill ackman says he believes trump will steer the country in the right direction. >> i woke up extremely bullish on trump, believe it or not. my thinking is as follows, united states is the greatest business in the world. it's been undermanaged for a long period of time. we now have a businessman in the president's -- as the president, and he has power. because republicans control congress, republicans control the senate, he's going to launch a major infrastructure program. he will take corporate taxes down to a sensible level and get rid of loopholes. he's going to get a lot done. >> in election primary season, bill ackman tried to draft
5:07 am
michael bloomberg to enter the race for the white house. he explained his original concerns about donald trump and talked about the volatility that he thought might have been there. but he's been reassured because he believes trump will want to be the greatest president this country has ever had. >> it's not just bill ackman. i'm thinking back to delivering alpha in september. >> yes. >> the thread from there was how the big money, the major hedge fund managers that we all heard of are gloomy and doomy. they're worried about monetary poli policy reachinglimits, no fiscal action. boy, have they changed their tune. you just heard from ackman, remember stan druckenmiller, i think we have some sound. listen to how he changed his tune. he was speaking on "squawk box" yesterda yesterday. >> this economy is so overregulated, people are drowning in red tape that the
5:08 am
removal of that and then i'm expecting serious tax reform, cuts to the corporate tax rate, a blended rate of under 10% to repatriate capital. i'm quite, quite optimistic on the economy. as always open-minded, but optimistic. i basically have a large bet on economic growth. how do i do that? i'm short bonds globally. i'm short bubbles. short bunds, short italian bonds, short u.s. bonds, that's reflective of not a disaster with deficits but stronger growth. i like sectors of the equity market that respond to growth, value and materials. staples and traditional growth stocks, and i really like the dollar, particularly against the euro. >> what he likes is working, the dollar, bonds are selling off
5:09 am
around the world this week. you're seeing rate sensitive areas like staples, utilities, telecom getting hammered on the back of rising rates. at some point when we get above 2% on the ten-year, you look at the bond yields, dividend yields, they're coming closer together. >> we're just about at that intersection where the yield on the overall s&p 500 is just about the same level address yields on the ten-year treasury. we talked about that inversion, about the reasons why people like those dividend paying stocks because you could get an incremental amount of income versus the ten-year treasury. >> for once, nothing to do with the fed. >> we will talk about fundamental stories again, sara. the trading week actually wraps up today with just one economic report on the agenda. it's 8:30 a.m. eastern time, it's the federal reserve vice chairman stanley fischer speaking on the economy. on the data front, the read on
5:10 am
consumer sentiment will be out at 10:00 a.m. as well. you have earnings, jcpenney reports third quarter results before the opening bell today. it's been a big week for retail and consumer discretionary related stocks. that, you can say, is helping to drive some of the market action. >> there's some enthusiasm there, too about the holiday period. >> disney earnings and revenues fell short of estimates, among the reasons, lower advertising sales and espn subscriber losses. the stock initiallify fualling that news but recovered as ceo bob iger sounded upbeat on the future. >> our outlook on espn is positive. you have a category, live television sports, that's generally very healthy. it adapts very well to mobile platforms. that's where we're moving espn. we feel good about espn. we're dealing with near-term
5:11 am
issues on the sub side, eyes wide open on that. not trying to hide anything. we think long-term prospects for espn are fine. >> more specifically, iger predicts modest growth in disney's next fiscal year but then says to expect more robust growth ahead of that. he expects digital revenues to be the big driver. >> in other corporate news, shari redstone said she never wanted to separate viacom and cbs ten years ago. redstone and her father, sumner, control both companies through their privately held movie company. a decade ago, summer decided to split viacom and cbs, but earlier this fall the redstones urged the companies to explore a merger. >> i think it makes sense at this point in time to explore whether it's in the interest of both companies to merge again. when you look at the changes taking place in the industry, you talked about some of them today, scale is going to matter.
5:12 am
it's going matter to the consumer who is looking to choose among a broader away of content what do they want? the more content you can offer, the more choices, the happier they will be. >> redstone added while she supports the merger both companies can stand on their own an be great. nordstrom sales topping estimates helped by its anniversary sale. gross margins rising more than expected. michael kors offering downbeat holiday guidance citing a decline in mall traffic. in its most recent quarter, kors beat on the bottom line, revenue came within estimates. nvidia reporting a 53% surge in revenue because of strong demand for the firm's chips. the firm announcing a $2 billion buy back and a hike of its dividend by 22%. >> 12% premarket gain. >> that's a big one. when we come back, it's been called the world's biggest
5:13 am
shopping event. it's singles day. alibaba looks to be closing in on a new sales record. we will take you live to china for a report. stay tuned. you're watching "worldwide exchange" on cnbc. so i thought t might be time to talk about a financial strategy. you mean pay him back? so let's start talking about your long term goals. knowing your future is about more than just you. it's how edward jones makes sense of investing.
5:14 am
5:15 am
welcome back to "worldwide exchange." if you are just waking up, let's get you up to speed on the market action. as you can see behind me, we're taking a breather, but who can blame the markets. we had a nice week of gains, and
5:16 am
even more so because of the trump election win. we've scene the markets rally strongly on those results. equity futures down about 0.2%. s&p futures off by 0.42%. and the nasdaq off by about a percent. oil is a big part of the story but not talked quite as much in the scheme of the overall stock market. brent crude futures off by 23 cents here. wti crude off by a full percent, $44.23. it's singles day in china, one of the largest online shopping days in the world. the alibaba-led event is estimated to generate $20 billion in sales. sherri kang joins us from outside alibaba headquarters in shenzhen. this is a massive day for
5:17 am
alibaba. how much are we talking about this time around? >> dominic, we are talking about 14.5 billion u.s. dollars, we are counting. we have six more hours to go until singles day. >> well, we've lost the shot from shenzhen, as you can see there. we'll get back to chery as we can. back to the broader markets. investors are piling into the dollar. it is strengthening against trading partners like the yuan, the mexican peso and bigger developed currencies like the euro and japanese yen. good morning, derrick. >> good morning. >> why is the dollar strengthening so much. we get the mexican peso and some of the rhetoric from donald trump, but against other big currencies, too. >> i think, you know, first off,
5:18 am
the markets have taken a view in terms of the directions of trump policy and perhaps the early days of his administration. there's two clear avenues, one is the fiscal stimulus and domestic spending, the other is the more divisive and less growth positive avenue of trade protection, policies to tackle immigration. i think for now the markets have gone down the first avenue and are focusing on the domestic demand boost to the economy from the tax policies. that really is the story in terms of yields and of course in terms of the dollar. >> it's dominic here. one thing we've been observing in the stock market in the u.s. is the massive run up for bank stocks because of all of this optimism about a steepening yield curve, whether that will
5:19 am
be better for them or not. is there a sense right now that interest rates can continue on this upward trajectory or are we due for a pullback soon? >> i'm a bit dubious. i get the longer term picture, but i do think that we have entered into a profound period of uncertainty. just look at dollar asia today for example and dollar emfx, we are beginning to see the first signs of what happens when you have these sharp moves higher in u.s. rates. the first casualties are the carry trade. that can start to create pretty intense financial market volatility and instability. that could quickly spread to equity markets. before you know it you could see reversal in the positive sentiment we've had. with that, of course, the yield momentum in the united states
5:20 am
could reverse as well. >> so the economist has a great piece that looked back to john connelly, treasury secretary's statement, the dollar is our currency but your problem. that's sort of what's playing out in the currency markets on the trump presidency. good for america, but what does it mean for emerging markets and the rest of world growth. is that the new paradigm in the currency markets? if so, what does it mean for some other currencies? >> again, it's about balancing up the positives and the negatives. of course, the u.s. economy is the largest economy in the world. if there was a big boost to domestic demand growth, some of this appreciation of the u.s. dollar versus these other currencies would not be that harmful potentially. the domestic demand global story would certainly pick up. what i would focus on somewhat
5:21 am
is what the fed do in response to this shifting expectations. if you go back to october, we had yellen talking about hinting at allowing the economy to run hot, signaling they would allow an inflation overshoot. yellen is speaking next thursday. is she going to repeat those hints? of course the balance of risks have shifted. if the markets start to get a sense that the fed won't respond to rising inflation expectations, the sentiment could again turn negative. >> are you saying they may not raise rates in december? >> yeah, bringing it shorter term, i would not be as confident as prior to the election we thought they would move in december on a clinton victory. the profound period of uncertainty and the assumption that the markets will remain orderly through to the 14th of december is a big call. i'm not confident that will be
5:22 am
the case. >> skepticism there, derek. thank you for joining us. have a great weekend. derek halpenny. >> so many things play into the currency market. anti-trump protesters hit the streets for a second day. those details coming up next. here's today's national weather forecast from reynolds wolf. >> good morning. let's look at the forecast across the country. we'll have cooler times in chicago, 49 degrees the expected high. dry weather for new york, 59 degrees there. atlanta, partly cloudy, a lot of smoke from those fires across tennessee, north carolina, alabama. dallas, clear skies, 74. denver, beautiful day. seattle, 61 and a bit of cloud cover. the l.a. basin, slightly cooler day. yesterday temperatures in the 90s, today about 86. dry across the great basin.

5:33 am
gone away. you see people selling treasury bonds and pushing yields up. as for the dollar, currency markets front and center. you have euros, 1.0871. dollar/yen, 1.0616. a bit of dollar weakness there. the pound, 1.2659. showing some strength there. dollar weakne gold prices have moved off of their highs over the last couple of months. we are lower again by almost a percent. 1.255. copper is one of the hottest trades over the past week or two. >> the chart of the week. >> up another 5.5% so far today. this winning streak has been huge. a lot of this tied to optimism about infrastructure spending, about this idea we'll have

5:35 am
the republican congress. we heard from some big hedge fund names, smart money completely changing their tune when it comes to the market and economy. we did hear from carl icahn, who is a trump supporter and said he was buying the night of the election. listen to what he said earlier in the week. >> what you have to do is incentivize business. doesn't even have to be a tax change, just incentivize. let the average ceo know government is behind you. government is pushing you. this is where we have to go. we have to get that done. i think trump is an extremely bright guy. i think he's going to get this done. >> there's one take, which also echoes what we heard from bla blankfein. and then here is stan druckenmiller speaking on "squawk box" yesterday.

>> this economy is so overregulated, people are just drowning in red tape, the removal of that, and then i'm expecting serious tax reform, cuts to the corporate tax rate, a blended rate of under 10% to repatriate capital. i'm quite, quite optimistic on the economy. as always open-minded, but optimistic. >> there's no doubt that optimism played out over the past four days. >> is it so far so fast, that initial enthusiasm, or are these policies that finally might happen, infrastructure spending, repatriation of $2 trillion in cash from overseas to overnight it won't happen overnight. are they enough to give this economy a shot in the arm for the longer term? >> transportation stocks are at a 52-week high right now. there's a general sense of optimism.

jennifer lawrence following the election wrote a piece saying don't be afraid, be loud. she writes if you're worried about the health of our planet, find out everything you can about how to protect it if you're worried about racial violence, love your neighbor more than you ever tried to before, no matter what they believe or who they voted for. if you're afraid of a wall putting us all into another recession, organize and stand against it. echoing some of the thoughts of nigel, more of the hillary clinton side of things, more of the barack obama/donald trump side, they're saying we're all americans now. you may not like the outcome, perhaps you can protest nonviolently, i should say, but still work together to make our country a better country. >> because donald trump knows now his approval ratings matter, the markets matter. it's not just about the polls anymore. not just about the size of his rallies. >> now it's about leadership. >> and there's a burst of

the so-called trump rally sending the dow to a record high. it's already up more than 5% for the week alone.
5:52 am
the s&p 500 up 4%, the russell 2000 up by 7%. joining us now is jack caffrey, global portfolio manager from jpmorgan. are you buying on this trump rally? >> we were invested going into the rally, you're seeing a dramatic rotation within the markets. the interest rate sensitive stocks have done much better. the more growth interest rate sensitive stocks have done better. they are pointing to expectations of a better day. we're trading and emphasizing the expectations more than the delivery in the short-term. >> one thing we noticed in the days following the election, the massive move higher in the trump-specific sectors, industrials, materials sector, also talking about financials.
5:53 am
have those stocks run up so much too far too fast in essence? >> i don't think the financials have come too far too fast. certainly you have -- this is not necessarily an expensive group yet, if you look on a price earnings basis, it's a cheaper group. in line with its more traditional valuation. you're looking at that higher interest rate, steeper yield curve and you start thinking maybe the banks can benefit from better net interest mar jigins reduced regulatory burdens. the reality may be more interesting given the policies we were talking about being implemented in the future. trying to get solutions actually coming out of congress. >> let's go one by one. the banks are up shg, financial 11% this week. is this on the idea that some of dodd-frank might be scrapped or all of it as alan greenspan said yesterday he would like to see. clearly the steeper yield curve
5:54 am
is helpful for the banks, but is this one where reality could meet somehopes reflected in the sector? >> the banks have the capital in much better shape than a few years ago. the prospect of reduced regulation or -- i don't think you can reduce regulation, i think you can potentially slow change. you can continue to looking to market-based policies. the stocks are not -- what matters is, i think, ultimately loan growth in that regard it comes back to the hope or expectations of a stimulus bill, a stimulus bill soon leading to a virtuous momentum driving cni loans out of the banking sector. in this regard, you saw some tightening that came out on monday. i've been buying banks over the past several weeks. am feeling happier about that decision over the last couple of days.

it's easier to look at that list in my portfolios. if you're long, you're very happy now. let's say hypothetically, unlike yourselves, there are people on the sidelines not long or underweight going into this market. how would you suggest investors get into the market now? dump everything into stocks or is there a strategy you would follow to get back into the market? >> the smart way is always to think about how you want to time entries into the market. it's not necessarily a one and done exposure. if you're looking at what's going on, you look at the amount you've seen in terms of the advance on the week, it's trying to buy those pullbacks. today could be an interesting opportunity for somebody who says i can't buy something up that much that quickly. >> you need a pause. >> you have to be a believer in things getting better. that's where the prospect of a unifiy eied white house coming together with a unified branches
5:56 am
of congress points to people getting things done. >> what do you do with the technology earnings growers and fast revenue growers, facebook, alphabet and amazon which have been hit hard this week? >> a lot of investors are using those stocks as funding to get into the banks, getting more exposure to the materials sector. if they have growth mandates, probably are buyers of biotechnology and healthcare which have been a weak sector over the -- >> do you scoop in and buy on this tip on the tech stocks? >> i don't think you scoop into them. higher interest rates are making those future interest rate growths less valuable than two, three weeks ago. you are paying a full multiple for the expectations of low growth continuing forever. now people are starting to question that. >> jack, thank you. jack caffrey, jpmorgan private
