tv   Mornings With Maria Bartiromo  FOX Business  June 5, 2019 6:00am-9:00am EDT

6:00 am
meet with mexican officials at the white house to try to make a deal before that happens. "mornings with maria" begins right now. ♪ want to put this song on replay. ♪ could listen to it all day. ♪ could listen to you all day. ♪ all day. ♪ yeah, want to put this song on replay. maria: let's take a look at markets one day after that big rally yesterday. markets rebounded and the rally continues this morning. futures indicate a gain of 155 points, two-thirds of one percent. the s&p is up 17, nasdaq up 57 points on the heels of a big rebound yesterday on comments from fed chair jay powell, the head of the central bank, signaling that trade tensions could affect future rate cuts. he said the fed will be ready if in fact things escalate.
6:01 am
now, i spoke with bank of america's ceo, brian moynihan yesterday, he doubt that the fed will have to cut. watch this. will the fed cut rates this year? what does your gut tell you? don't tell me what your economist says. >> i don't think they will. maria: you don't think they will. >> unless something goes really wrong in a trade, i think the economy is stronger than people think. that's a personal belief. i can tell you, unless something goes really wrong, the economy is going to move along in 2% plus growth rate. they're raising rates at this growth rate. maria: joining me right now is david scranton. it's good to see you this morning. markets heard what they wanted to hear yesterday from jay powell. how do you see things? >> yes. well, i feel as though finally the federal reserve has listened to the president and they started to side with the president. they were working against him for a while it seems or at least what he wanted but now with the
6:02 am
comments yesterday it seems like the president might get what he wants. i was thinking up until now this could be a year where the old addage, sell in may and go away plays through. i'm starting to second guess a that. you never want to bet against the federal reserve as you well know. maria: that's interesting. things feel really good. you look at the economy right now and the headline numbers, like record low unemployment or good growth in the first quarter of 3.1%. while we have seen pockets of weakness like manufacturing and those purchasing manager's indexes, the pmis, pretty much people feel that things are strong and without a major change like a trade issue, we could continue on a 2% level. is that the way you see it? >> i believe that we can. but that's, again, without the trade issue. and the trade issue as you know can shave off between a half and three quarter percent growth on the gdp. so i think what's happening
6:03 am
right now is when you look across at lackluster growth in europe and other parts of the world, we are once again it seems the cleanest dirty shirt in the world's economic camper. how long can we stay strong, keep growing, when the rest of the world seems to be doing otherwise. maria: i spoke with the ceo of walmart yesterday and he commented on a potential business slowdown. he was very iffy about it. he still says things look good. watch this. >> this is a cycle. it's impossible i think to call exactly what's going to happen. we try to be prepared for anything and manage our costs so that if something were to change in the environment that we would be ready for that. we're not seeing anything right now that would cause us to think today's environment is different than it was in recent months. maria: then we take look at trade, david. where is this going in terms of these issues? mexico leaders are going to meet with vice president pence as well as secretary pompeo this
6:04 am
week. we'll see what they come up. with yesterday, it was interesting from the president of mexico saying we think we're going to get a deal done. we think we're going to be able to do something to help on the immigration issue for the president. so this may very well be bluster that we don't see any tariffs on mexico. what do you think? >> it's possible with mexico, absolutely. they really have an axe to grind, a reason to be our ally, to be our friend when it comes to trade. they're a small part of the big picture. really it's the china worries that are the biggest part. right now, that seems to be going in the opposite direction for a whole variety of reasons. so i hope that will play out in first half of the year and now i'm not so sure. maria: i agree with you on the china story. that's a much bigger story. it's really more than just the economic part of the story. this is a national security issue as well. let me tell what you the fox news poll shows in terms of the trump economy. 48% of americans approve of how the president is handling the economy. the president tweeted this early this morning.
6:05 am
if the he totally corrupt media was less corrupt i would be up by 15 points in the polls based on our tremendous success with the economy. if the corrupt media was actually fair i would be up by 25%. nevertheless, despite the fake news we're doing great says the president. his way to stick it to the media, or the media is not focusing on the economic story. the economy is driving the president's popularity, has been from the beginning. if we were to see a downturn as a result of the trade, does that affect his rel election campaign? >> -- re-election campaign? >> absolutely. it's one of the concerns a lot of people have who are trump supporters right now is he's been touting the economy and the stock market. we have a long way to go. we have another, gosh, it's 17 months and the stock market being right now on a record recovery in terms of cyclical bull markets are concerned, so you have to say can it really last that long, this bull market, even with the federal
6:06 am
reserve's best efforts to prop it up as, again, we heard yesterday from chairman powell. maria: the first quarter looks good, 3.1% growth. we're getting the may a adp report out in about two hours. economists are expecting an increase of 180,000 jobs for the adp report and then we get the jobs number at the end of the week for the month as well. and that's probably similar numbers, 180,000 is what we're looking for from adp. do you think we'll get a good number? >> if we see a weakening it will be in the adp numbers before it will be in the jobless claims. so it's possible we're just a little soft from the 180, maybe 175, but i think the initial jobless claims will be right on target with consensus. so these issues are really longer term issues that we have to worry about and remember, what the average investor looks at is not so much gdp growth. the average investor looks at the stock market, are the mutual funds up, is the 401-k worth more. it's a stock market issue for
6:07 am
the president's re-election. maria: we're looking at job opportunities. we've got the adp number out today and friday we've got the jobs numbers from the labor department, 185,000 jobs expected in the month of may. the unemployment rate expected to hold steady at 3.6%. that's a good number. whether you're looking at the stock market or opportunities in jobs, you're feeling pretty good right now. >> yeah. well, let's hope. let's hope. and maria, i have to till, that's why when ever i have an opportunity to talk with somebody like yourself on television, i like to stick to fox because i don't want to be involved with all that fake news and that's actually the truth. maria: wow, it's unfortunate that we don't see the reporting of some of these very good economic stories elsewhere. but we certainly will keep on it, david. good to see you. thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. maria: be sure to join us on friday for our coverage of the may jobs report, all hands on deck as we do jobs in america, 8:00 a.m. eastern, right here,
6:08 am
friday morning where we get the jobs news out. breaking news this morning, president trump is arriving at portsmouth on england's south coast to mark the 75th a anniversary of the d-day landings. cheryl casone has more on that right now. cheryl: president trump is set to take part in a photo opportunity with leaders that are attending these d-day ceremonies in portsmouth. the president is going to be paying his respects to american service members and allies who helped rescue europe from nazi germany back in 1944. fox business will have live coverage of that event, 6:15 a.m. eastern time. president trump's expected to make remarks 30 minutes later. he will make his first presidential visit to ireland, that's going to be later today. well, vice president mike pence meeting with mexican leaders at the white house today with the first in a series of u.s. tariffs against mexican imports set to take effect on monday. chuck schumer strongly
6:09 am
criticizing the trump administration's move. >> i believe that he will back off when faced with the opposition among business, among his own republicans, and when he sees what a dumb move he has made. cheryl: president trump tweeting can you imagine crying chuck schumer saying out loud for all to hear that i am bluffing with respect to putting tariffs on mexico. what a creep. he would rather have our country fail with drugs and immigration than give republicans a win. he gave mexico bad ad vice. no -- bad advice. no bluff. those are your headlines. another tweet. can't make it up. maria: cheryl, thank you. we have breaking news right now. we're standing by for live remarks from the president. he is commemorating the 75th anniversary of d-day which is june 6th. plus, questions for carlos ghosn, renault reportedly ready to bring a case against the former chairman over expense reports. we're going to get into that when we come right back. stay with us, back in a moment. another rally underway right now.
6:10 am
♪ just keep breathing and breathing and breathing and breathing and breathing. ♪ keep on breathing. ♪ i keep breathing and breathing and breathing and breathing. ♪ so, jardiance asks... when it comes to type 2 diabetes, are you thinking about your heart? well, i'm managing my a1c, so i should be all set. right. actually, you're still at risk for a fatal heart attack or stroke. even if i'm taking heart medicine, like statins or blood thinners? yep! that's why i asked my doctor what else i could do... she told me about jardiance. that's right. jardiance significantly reduces the risk of dying from a cardiovascular event for adults who have type 2 diabetes and known heart disease. that's why the american diabetes association recommends the active ingredient in jardiance.
6:11 am
and it lowers a1c? yeah- with diet and exercise. jardiance can cause serious side effects including dehydration, genital yeast or urinary tract infections, and sudden kidney problems. ketoacidosis is a serious side effect that may be fatal. a rare, but life-threatening, bacterial infection in the skin of the perineum could occur. stop taking jardiance and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of this bacterial infection, ketoacidosis, or an allergic reaction. do not take jardiance if you are on dialysis or have severe kidney problems. taking jardiance with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. so, what do you think? now i feel i can do more to go beyond lowering a1c. ask your doctor about jardiance today.
6:12 am
thanksno problem.. -you're welcome. this is the durabed of the all new chevy silverado. it looks real sturdy. -the bed is huge. it has available led cargo area lighting. lights up the entire bed. it even offers a built in 120 volt outlet. wow. plug that in for me. whoa! -holy smokes!
6:13 am
-oh wow! and the all new silverado has more trim levels than any other pickup. whoa! oh wow! -very cool. there's something for all of us. absolutely. it's time to upgrade. (laughter) maria: welcome back. we have a big show this morning. coming up, united kingdom secretary of state for international trade, liam fox is here this morning. georgia congressman, doug collins joins us this morning. awell as newt gingrich is here. fox news senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano as well. carlos ghosn could soon be facing new charges. renault planning to bring a case against ghosn after reportedly finding more than $12 million of questionable expenses. that's according to the finance minister of france. joining the conversation this morning, fox business network's dagen mcdowell, market strategist, michael block, as
6:14 am
well as emily compagno. thank you for joining us, everybody. >> great to be here. maria: big rally yesterday on wall street. what did you make of this, jay powell is talking about the trade situation and should things get a lot worse, he's ready to act. >> we were looking at a situation where data and earnings were not getting investors excited. there was the china trade situation and then what happened with end of last week with the mexico trade situation it really had everyone down in the dumps, had everyone talking about recession. jay powell is noticing this. he came out and said we'll take appropriate action to sustain growth. very important words. sustain growth, appropriate action, it reminds me of mario ragi saying we will make sure everything goes right in europe by whatever means necessary. is it enough? is it co coughs met cosmetic?
6:15 am
we're going to find out. maria: we were talking about raising rates in november. six, seven months ago, it was november. dagen: i would just caution investors about the excitement of the fed running to the rescue of any problems that might develop in the economy because justinlayheart wrote about this. historically, rate cuts only ease when the possibility of a recession is pretty clear or the markets themselves have fallen into like a major funk, to use justin's word, that the financial stability of the nation is at risk. the bar is pretty high for a rate cut. and the fed, again, i've said this, will take a wait and see approach, probably with related to the tariffs and the trade fights because they have to also sit back and see if the tariffs, the higher tariffs cause inflation. if you have all companies beginning to raise prices, then
6:16 am
that could be inflation. maria: because they can't get to the inflation target, haven't been able to, 2%. this is important because the president is facing a re-election campaign in 2020 and he's been running and doing well because the economy is doing well. >> this is when conjecture plays a bilbig part of it for voters. they've seen what returned to their income and their job security. there's a confidence and comfort level that all of this kind of fear-based rhetoric at this point hasn't trickled down to the kitchen table yet. at this point it's just threats an conjecture. dagen: we were talking about, because we're the nerds, before the break, that any weakness in the economy right now is in manufacturing and in the factory sector, most pronounced. and that the ism for new york yesterday really fell off a cliff and then you've got this rally despite that. >> it went from a 73 handle to a 48 handle, calling tray consist.
6:17 am
maria: it's a global manufacturing story. global manufacturing pmis have dropped below 50. >> it's an eye-opener. we are facing a re-election next year, 2020. the fed did what it could yesterday. we saw a little bit of indication of that. they're going to signal they're going to make sure nothing bad -- nothing bad is a allowed to happen. the question is, what is president trump going to do, what's going to happen with china trade, what's going to happen with the mention he co-situation, what's going to happen with the -- mexico situation, what's going to happen with the democrats across the aisle with fiscal stimulus. the onus is for both parties to do something here if they're looking to sustain growth. maria: the president of mexico said he thinks they could come up with some plan, some agreement to avoid tariffs. i personally don't think we'll see tariffs on mexico. i think it would be crazy, given the fact that he needs to have usmca passed and the dems have given him enough pressure on that. >> dagen: president trump
6:18 am
yesterday morning in the press conference with theresa may was like oh, they're coming and i would say 5% tariffs wouldn't really mean much because the peso is declining in value. that offsets any tariff we slap on imports from mexico. maria: it's the incrementsal. dagen: it's the rolling and the next month if we get to 25% by october, look out. maria: it's true. look out. let's look at the possible renault, fiat merger. renault's board of directors saying it needs more time to consider the proposal fiat chrysler. if successful, the companies would create the third largest autautomaker by production witha market value of around $40 billion. this comes after renault and nissan talked about a merger but of course that put carlos ghosn in jail. he's out now on bail. your thoughts? >> yeah, well, first of all, for fiat to analyze this, they need a team of lawyers to figure out the corporate governance part of this, given the cross share holdings between nissan and renault. the auto sector is under a
6:19 am
massive secular change given the move to autonomous driving, electric vehicles and when you look at the vehicle sales figures around the world, they don't get anyone too excited. it makes sense that might will make right here. the merger would make a lot of sense. there are a lot of complications, cultural, financial and otherwise. i think we're going to see more about this. again, getting back to the whole tariff situation, the mexico threats from last week were a big hit on the supply chain where automakers are left saying wait a minute, where are supply chains going to be situated. fiat, nissan, renault are facing challenge as well. this does make a lot of sense. there's a lot of wood to chop here. maria: we're watching pictures of the d-day commemoration event in portsmouth, u.k. the president is there with the first lady along with other leaders. we saw germany's angela merkel. we saw macron from france as
6:20 am
well. dagen: the 75th anniversary is tomorrow, june 6th. operation overlord, there were more than 150,000 troops who came together from allied countries, the united kingdom, united states, and canada, and it's really incredible. we remember those who sacrificed their lives. but again, this joint effort, we are partners in prosperity and sacrifice with the united kingdom and it's important to remember the sacrifice then and our freedom now. maria: it sure is. dagen: we wouldn't be sitting here if not for that joint effort. maria: we might be speaking german, that's for sure. we are watching the world look to the 75th commemoration anniversary. my uncle landed on bloody omaha. a number of my uncles did. i know your family as well. we have to thank p all of those people who fought for our country then and for the freedom and fight for us every day today. dagen: i will encourage people
6:21 am
to go to bedford, virginia, it's right near where i grew up. the national d.-day memorial is in bedford because bedford per capita lost more men on that day than any other city or town in the united states. there were 1 19 young men who dd storming those beaches. maria: it's incredible to hear the stories of those who are here today to tell it. president trump is set to speak at the event commemorating the 75th an verse riff of d day -- anniversary of d-day. stay with us. busy morning, right here. my body is truly powerful. i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it like it's supposed to. trulicity is for people with type 2 diabetes.
6:22 am
it's not insulin. i take it once a week. it starts acting in my body from the first dose. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, or severe stomach pain. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. i have it within me to lower my a1c. ask your doctor about trulicity.
6:23 am
can the past help you write the future? can you feel calm in the eye of a storm? can you do more with less? can you raise the bar while reducing your footprint? for our 100 years we've been answering the questions of today to meet the energy needs of tomorrow. southern company
6:24 am
maria: welcome back. we have breaking news this morning, this a live look at portsmouth, u.k. president trump and world leaders participating at this
6:25 am
event to commemorate the 75th an verse i'vanniversary of d-dah june 6th. the president met with queen elizabeth and her family this week. we have signed royal photos on set which we will show you momentarily. we want to show you these photos here. these are signed photos of queen elizabeth and her husband and these were lent to us from bradley scott, actually, he is a dress designer, a friend of the program. and he was telling me stories that he is a collector and he decided to -- he heard us talking about it and said, well, i can lend you my photos. we have signed photos in his collection, pretty cool to look at. >> i think that's incredible. maria: yeah. here's one, look. >> that's just beautiful. maria: 1976. this was signed, obviously 200 years after the nation declaring
6:26 am
independence in 1976, these were signed. >> incredible. maria: bradley scott, thank you for lending us these beautiful pictures. dagen: this is the queen mother. maria: this is the queen's mother. dagen: may she rest in peace. camilla wore one of the queen mother's -- well, a crown that's very familiar to the queen mother at the state dinner on monday night. why i know had that, i have no idea. >> my wife amanda's great uncle was a medic on omaha beach. here he was this young man from kentucky, preparing for d-day. he couldn't let his family know where he was for security reasons. what he did was, they were up in scotland getting ready for this and he had a picture taken in full highland gear with a kilt and bagpipes and sent it to the family so they knew he was safe and they had an inkling where he was without knowing where he was. maria: wow. it's really important that we
6:27 am
look at these commemorations of d-day and of world war ii and remember and discuss what happened. i feel like younger generations don't understand and don't have the pride. some people in young rer generations, some people don't understand what went on. we grew up in an environment where our uncles, our grandfathers all fought and understood the seriousness. >> migrate my great, great uno is bauerlyed in france -- buried in france, his mother helped to rally to go see her son's final resting place. if we don't pass this down, then how are we going to keep sharing. dagen: it's our responsibility to keep telling the stories. the individual, the personal stories about not only d-day but all of the sacrifices that our men and women have made to preserve our freedom.
6:28 am
when i say we wouldn't be sitting here, i mean we are a free exercise of the first amendment every single day. and it's these freedoms that we do certainly take for granted. it's important to remember, particularly on a day like today and tomorrow, the 75th anniversary of how lucky we are and all of the people who died, to make sure we are free. maria: incredibly lucky. we will take a short break. when we come back, president trump is set to speak at that event commemorating the 75th anniversary of d-day. we'll bring you his remarks live when we come back. a new threat from russia, a fighter jet buzzes past an american jet over the med mediterranean. we have details on that. back in a minute. the moon came out a little bit and it started coming up at us. one guy said you could get killed out here. another guy said yeah, let's get on this plane. rather than worry about how to pay for long-term care.

6:34 am
took place. >> it was unlike anything a that we've ever faced before, that's for sure. i'm so thrilled that the president is taking part in these ceremonies. it means the world to these veterans, to show how grateful we are as a nation, to show our appreciation. i believe it's our duty as americans to pay tribute to the veterans and honor their sacrifice. i spent a lot of time at war. i spent six combat tours overseas between iraq and afghanistan. i spent my 21st birthday in afghanistan. when i hear the stories of these world war ii veterans, what we faced over there is nothing compared to what they faced. i can't imagine the things that were going through their minds when they stormed the beaches of normandy and unfortunately, we're losing more and more of these world war ii veterans every single day. my grandfather, he's a world war ii veteran. he turns 99 years old this year. he speaks of such pride, such
6:35 am
pride that he had for our country and i think we're losing that. you talked about that a bit earlier, this pride factor here. but to me also the d-day ceremonies are more than just a symbolic gesture of these memories. it also talks to our alliance as well with great britain and france. it speaks to that, how it's more important than ever, especially with some of the threats we face. maria: when you think about what took place, it's so extraordinary and the reason that i said that in terms of some young people not really understanding today, because we don't really talk about it the way we used to. i grew up in a household where it was always there. my uncles fought in world war ii. one of my uncles landed at omaha beach. they called it bloody omaha. my grandfather fought in world war i. it was always there in my family, that we knew we had family members that fought for this country, fought for freedom. we don't have those conversations i feel like with younger people because while
6:36 am
they're big event in -- their big event in terms of understanding terrorism was 9/11 which was incredibly significant as well. we were attacked. so it was not the same as having the people fight, go -- when our soldiers got off those boats, got off of those helicopters, they were met with a lineup of machine guns. by the germans. many of them knew they were -- or expected they were going to die. dagen: coming off those higgins boats on the beaches off the coast of france. what can we do, to maria's point, to remember the stories from world war ii, but also connect with those people who have served and sacrificed, who are younger, who are your age. you talk about turning 21 in afghanistan. what as a nation should we be doing to really kind of bring the circle in, so-to-speak?
6:37 am
>> right. well, i think we have to keep telling these stories. it took a lot for me to get my grandfather to talk about the stories during world war ii. i think a lot of times your nature is to hold it in. combat veterans these days feel like americans don't understand what they went to, they feel like the stories they tell might seem absurd to civilians who might have not been a part of it. i think it's more than just saying thank you for your service, ask a veteran to tell you a story, let them tell you a story and listen to them and hear the incredible sacrifices that were made. a lot of stories aren't coming to light. i think we need to preserve that. dagen: i do think that -- you can disagree with me, an you too, maria, but i think certainly our attitude about the service of our veterans and the people who are currently serving in the military is changing through things like jock s's o willington, former navy seal,
6:38 am
out there through books and through the muster training programs, they do corporate training exercises but it's all based on what they learned in service. and there is a real connection with that and what they're trying to teach people about, well, to use their phrase, extreme ownership, because we went to a seminar and it was extremely powerful and it made the important connection between their service and what they experienced and how we can implement that in our everyday lives in terms of personal responsibility. maria: personal responsibility, leadership, resilience, courage, and i think that was a great idea that they took some of their learnings to the corporate world to explain some of that extreme ownership. dagen: one of their musters, one of the events they put on where they basically teach you these -- both life and work lessons, if you will, these lessons of sacrifice and
6:39 am
personal responsibility. that they tell the stories about the battles that they participated in and how that can be applied to basically leading a better life, whether you're a civilian or not. i hope that more of that happens. maria: i agree with you. we're going to ask you about the military overseas this morning. the u.s. navy reporting a russian fighter jet buzzed past a u.s. navy plane flying over the mediterranean plane repeatedly. the u.s. navy said it caused turbulence, putting u.s. pilots and crew at risk. what's your reaction to this? >> well, i think just overall russia seems to be getting more and more involved and putin seems to be taking more aggressive action. i think he believes that the current geopolitical climate is in disaa ray to the point where he can test the world. not only do we see this incident but we saw overnight a hyper sonic weapon being tested. last week we saw some sort of renewed nuclear testing that was noticed by our intelligence
6:40 am
services. it appears that putin is lashing out, not only because he feels like the time is right to do that because we may be spread too thin with our own issues but also recently what happened is the trump administration pulled out of this international nuclear forces armed treaty with russia which essentially at the time had banned the use of missiles within a range of 500 to 5,000 kilometers. so that's sort of a nonstarter for putin who really is worried that he's seeing more and more of this expansion of our u.s. defense, missile system, defense architecture particularly within eastern europe. i think he's a bit nervous about that. we're going to continue to see him try and take bolder action and we're going to see him start to unravel these alliances. i noticed he's getting cozy with north korean leader kim jong un. so i worry also that some of this bold action may result in them even potentially providing the north koreans with weapon systems and maybe plussing up
6:41 am
their nuclear program which is a big fear of mine. maria: it's good to have you on the program. thanks so much and thank you for your service, brett. >> of course. thank you. maria: another medical lab falls victim to a data breach. cheryl casone with headlines. cheryl: that's right. lab corp. saying nearly 8 million patients may be affected by a data breach at a collectioncollection firm. the collection agency notifying 200,000 people that credit card or bank information was possibly exposed. they say they provided no medical information to the firm. same breach recently affected quest diagnostics. staying in healthcare, cvs health is shifting its focus to healthcare services. the company's going to turn 1 10 locations into health substores by the end of 2021. these redesigned drugstores will have a lab for blood tests and also for health screenings that will give less face to products like greeting cards and candy.

6:48 am
ratchet higher. that's a big part of this too. that was a real left hook to the markets last week, so-to-speak. i think there's a lot of realization that it's not feasible, the republicans seem to be coming out against it and it could be done. maria: the president's about to walk up to make his remarks. let's go back to the u.k. to hear the president at the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of d-day. here comes president trump right now. >> all mighty god, our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our republic, our religion and our civilly unite civilization e a suffering humanity. they wil will need thy blessing

maria: welcome back. the president as you just heard read an excerpt from a prayer that franklin roosevelt read on the evening of june 6th, after the landing in norman ditch we're going to get back to the commemoration of the 75th anniversary on d-day shortly. the federal reserve is hinting at a possible rate cut yesterday. it caused a huge rally in stocks. he suggested we could see rates come down by the end of the year. traders are betting on that possibility. i spoke with the ceo of bank of america, brian moynihan. he disagrees that we will see a cut in rates. watch. how do you see the broad economy right now?
6:55 am
>> you think about the u.s. economy as two-thirds consumers, the size of the economy is basically equivalent to china's economy. when we think about what's going to happen to the economy, i think about what the consumers are doing. bank of america, so far this year through may we've had a trillion dollars in payments made by consumers, a check written, a credit card, debit card payment, atm, that is up 5% plus from last year. what you saw is the economy grew faster. now it's come back down. it's very strong. it picked up during the year a little bit. maria: let me go to another gap. it's the gap in interest rates. the 10 year dropped like a rock, it broke 2.07%, actually. the yield curve has now inverted where you've got the 10 year actually lower than the three month at 2.3%. what does the inversion tell you for starters? is this indicating that a recession is on the horizon? >> there's a common view that there's a correlation between
6:56 am
inverted yield curves and recession and it proves to be true a number of times. also proves not to be true. i think you've got to focus on the real underlying economic data and what you're seeing come out and so business confidence is strong. not as strong as it was. but it's strong, consumer confidence is strong, not as strong as the highest point, spending, et cetera. you've got to concentrate on that. maria: will the fed rut cates this -- cut rates this year? >> i don't think they will. unless something he goes really wrong with trade, i think the economy is stronger than people think. unless something goes really wrong and confidence breaks, the economy will move along in 2% growth rate. they're raising rates at this growth rate. maria: i think we're all waiting -- i feel like we're all waiting for things to slow down in a meaningful way. we haven't seen that across the board with the exception of manufacturing. dagen: exactly. the fed ain't cutting rates with a 3.6% unemployment rate.
6:57 am
i'm just leaving you with that. maria: exactly. that's right. things are pretty good still. we'll keep talking about that. china is slapping a fine on ford meanwhile. it continues its retaliatory moves. plus the ceremony commemorating the 75th anniversary of d-day, next. introducing the first of its kind lexus ux and ux f sport, also available in hybrid all-wheel drive. lease the 2019 ux 200 for $329/month for 36 months. experience amazing at your lexus dealer. i couldn't catch my breath. it was the last song of the night. it felt like my heart was skipping beats. they said i had afib.

7:01 am
that sparked a huge rally on wall street yesterday. that continues this morning. futures indicate a gain at the start of trading of 167 points. the s&p is up 20. the nasdaq is up 61. as you see. next hour we will get the may adp report, the expectation is for 180,000 jobs added to the economy in the month of may. this after a big rally on wall street yesterday on the powell comments. take a look. the dow industrials finishing up 512 points. that was better than 2%. the s&p was up better than 2%. 58 points higher. the nasdaq up two and two thirds percent, 194 points higher on the nasdaq yesterday, all on the idea that the fed could in fact cut rates at some point this year. in europe this morning, gains there as well. fq100 is up two thirds of a percent, 44 points. the cac in paris is up 36. the dax index up 68 points. in asia overnight, markets were mixed but as you can see, japan was the best performer, up 1.8% on the nikkei average. china is hitting ford motor with
7:02 am
a fine. what that means for the trade fight coming up. all those stories coming up this wednesday morning. joining me to break it down, dagen mcdowell, market strategist, michael block and fox news contributor, emily compagno. great to see everybody this morning. >> thank you. dagen: can we talk about markets really quickly? yeah, please. dagen: maria: we move on to the -- dagen: before we move on to the d-day commemoration. are you surprised the markets are following through after the fed speaking yesterday. i was listening closely to what brian money han moynihan was sao rate cut this year. barclays, the economists there think the fed will cut rates by half a percentage point in september. and then another 25 basis points later in the year. that's kind of incredible for an economy that for the most part looks solid right now. maria: it depends on the trade fight.
7:03 am
look what china's doing now. it's messing with ford motor. it harassed fed ex last week. it's threatening that it's going to stop the rare earth minerals from getting imported to the u.s. the fight with china worsens and now we've got this mexico uncertainty. >> remember, mr. moynihan is doing his job as ceo of one of the largest banks in the world, saying everything is going along reasonably well. there's no need to cut rates here. there's others who are more academic and are saying well, if the unemployment rate is x, then maybe we don't need to cut rates. remember james board from the st. louis fed said the other day, low unemployment rate is not a reason in this situation to not cut rates because there's other things going on. we have a dysfunction alomar get here. this yield curve is telling us something is amiss here. we could say this time it's different. we could say it's not a real l signal, doesn't matter anymore. the point is, it is affecting the market and the economic psychology out there. the fed cutting rates may help
7:04 am
alleviate some of that psychosis, if you will, and that's a big part of this. maria: maybe it's sentiment. look at the data points. you've got unemployment at 3.6%. we're going to get the adp number out in a an hour and 10 minutes. we expect to see 180,000 jobs created in the month of may and unemployment holding steady at 3.6%. i recognize the pmi is showing weakness certainly on a global basis. you have the question, can the u.s. continue growing this way with the rest of the world slowing down. but is it that dire that we need a rate cut? >> the rate cut is a matter of instilling confidence and undoing some of the dysfunction in the market. that's the way i look at it. when i talk to professionals, guys who run a lot of men in the credit sector, they say the december hike was a mistake, done on backward looking data, perhaps it shouldn't have been done. this would help undo that. dagen: it would have to be pretty dire for the fed to cut rates. the only example when it wasn't the case, when it wasn't obvious a recession was on the horizon
7:05 am
or real instability in the financial markets was going back to 1995. that came after the fed raised short-term interest rates by 3 percentage points in a single year. maria: then they reversed course. dagen: it's been a number of years. and by the way, that was -- it was also the last two jobs reports preceding that fed interest rate cut were actually we saw job destruction in those months. that was one of the reasons. so you would have to see -- the federal reserve is not cutting rates if we're getting six figure job increases every month and inflation is still at 1.6%, although that's low. you have the tariffs which could increase inflation and unemployment is low and you've got wage growth the fastest pace in a decade. this is not the backdrop of a fed that cuts rates and the market thinks it's going to happen. i'm like you better watch out. the yield curve was inverted
7:06 am
yesterday. maria: the 10 year is lower than a lot of them. what yield are you looking at that's most important? because if you look at even the three month, that's at 2.4, 2.5%, versus the 2.07 that you're looking at the 10 year. what yield do you look at that's most important in terms of -- versus the 10 year. dagen: you watch the 10 year. maria: versus what. dagen: versus the fed funds rate. maria: that's two and-a-half. dagen: i don't think the fed cuts rates here even though the yield curve is inverted. maria: i don't think so either. it's not warranted with the economy that's growing and producing all these jobs. dagen: watch the fed fund raise two and a quarter, two and-a-half. watch when it gets above two and a quarter percent, that would be a healthy sign, right, mike? >> the spread is signaling
7:07 am
recession right now. we could say that's not possible. that's what the market is telling us right now. the fear is this becomes a self fulfilling prophecy, the data heads south. that's what the fed is telling us they want to focus on. maria: there's the 10 year at 2.13%. the others are higher than this at 2 and a quarter to two and-a-half percent. we are remembering america's heroes this morning. moments ago president trump delivered a tribute the to commemorate the 75th anniversary of d-day. he read from roosevelt's d-day prayer. >> all mighty god, our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our republic, our religion, and our civilization and to set free a suffering humanity. they will need thy blessings for
7:08 am
the enemy is strong. he may hurl back our forces but we shall return again and again. and we know that by thy grace and by the righteous of our cause, our sons will triumph. maria: wow, getting the chills as he reads that prayer. joining me now, fox news contributor, the author of collusion, newt gingrich is here. thanks very much for weighing in this morning. quite the commemorative ceremony happening in the u.k. as we look ahead to tomorrow, june 6th and the anniversary of d-day, 7 a 75years ago. >> i actually did a podcast on d-day and president roosevelt's prayer. the whole prayer runs much longer than they had time for this morning. i thought president trump delivered the heart of it really, really well and hopefully it reminds people that in 1944 this was seen as a sprirt wall crusade -- spiritual
7:09 am
crusade. you had nazis who were anti-god trying to create a secular dictatorship. it was seen as a struggle for the survival of our civilization. tomorrow represents the 75th anniversary of the biggest gamble ever taken by humans beings. there is no other project the size and complexity of the normandy invasion. and it was a remarkable human achievement. maria: it's a good way to put it. let me ask you about the trump economy, newt. we want to look at these new fox news polls, showing the president received positive job ratings on his handling of the economy. the president tweeted this. if the totally corrupt media was less corrupt i would be up by 15 points in the polls based on our tremendous success in the economy, maybe the best ever. if the corrupt media was actually fair i would be up by 25 points. nevertheless, despite the fake nukes we are doing grace -- fake news, we are doing great. we are debating whether or not we're going to see a rate cut. the economy is going strong. we have 3.6% unemployment.
7:10 am
and we have adp numbers showing more job growth, within the next hour. >> let me offer a contrarian view. i think the fed ought to focus on money. if you have no inflation, then you ouyou ought to be relatively passive. if you have an increase in productivity you can afford to cut rates just not because you're trying to stimulate the economy, but because you actually don't need to send any signal that money ought to be more expensive. money is expensiveness is a function of projected inflation and what trump has managed to pull off so far is substantial economic growth while fighting with some of our trading partners, while really working a at profound deregulation. he's got a relatively stable monetary environment with continued increase in unemployment and wage increase which is very, very important to bring the middle class back into
7:11 am
the game. >> mr. speaker, mike block here. good morning. so what does this all mean? in light of what you just said, what do you think could happen here with the trade situation with mexico, which is on everyone's mind over the past few days? do you think that tariffs will go into place? do you think a deal can be reached here? do you think it's very important to the economic engine continuing? >> i think a deal will probably be reached. again, frankly, the president ought to put the focus on the congress. we wouldn't be in this mess, he wouldn't be having to muscle the mexicans if the u.s. congress would do its job. the whole premise that trump worked on for two and-a-half years was build a wall, protect the united states, don't bother your neighbor. but if the congress refuses to do its job, and he is determined to cut off the flow of illegal immigration, which by the way has grown dramatically in the last year, then you've got to pressure the number one source
7:12 am
which is mexico. i mean, all of these people coming up to the border are coming up to the border through mexico. and if the mexicans wanted to, they could control all of that. historically, they haven't wanted to particularly. and so i think he looked around for the only tool he had, which was to scare the mexican with a tariff and he said look, trying to get control of our border and trying to stop illegal immigration is more important than the short-term economic side effect of a tariff. i mean, plus, remember, trump is a very good negotiator who always starts very tough and then goes back to being reasonable. maria: the republicans are threatening to block any tariffs on mexico and we should point out that one of the ministers in mexico yesterday said he sees an 80% chance of avoiding any u.s. tariffs. it feels like it's bluster. that's how saw it from the get-go. we'll see. he made the threat.
7:13 am
he's got to stick to it if in fact they don't come up with a substantial answer to the border crisis. >> i think vice president pence will end up with a positive announcement, will take substantial steps in the right direction which they should. i would point out whether or not even with the republicans and the senate in rebellion, whether or not they could overvied a presidential veto is not at all clear to me. maria: it's good to see you this morning. thanks so much. >> great. thanks. maria: newt gingrich joining us there. ford in the middle, as tensions between the u.s. and china intensify. the details coming up next. then tim cookies pushing back, the ceo of apple denying a monopoly, coming up, right after this. ♪ i just want to feel this moment. ♪

maria: welcome back. u.s.-china trade tensions are heating up. china fining ford's joint venture nearly $24 million for violating anti-monopoly law, as trade talks between the u.s. and china remain at a stand still. joining us now is jonathan ward, author of the book, china's vision of victory. good to have you on the program this morning. thank you for joining us. the vision of victory for china is what? >> the vision of victory for china is to surpass the united states, to use their economic power to build themselves into the dominant super power of the 21st century. they're going to fill in the military and technological pieces. the bottom line is to use the power of 1.4 billion people to become a force unlike anything else in the world. maria: there's national security concerns around this. that's one area that we've been covering mostly, the national
7:25 am
security threat as opposed to just an economic story. this is way more than just a trade war. huawei is a perfect example. the chinese technology company's chairman says he's willing to sign a no spy deal with the united states. that's what he's saying. this as the u.s. is pushing a ban due to security concerns. they recognize they're about to he see a ban, they are seeing a ban in the united states and they're about to see lots of partners, customers, say we're no longer doing business with you because there is espionage going on, everything that huawei picks up goes right back to the chinese government. >> that's right. you have to look at at huawei in the context of this entire system. people are looking for a smoking gun, i.e., what have they done. the smoking gun is the political system china. they say any entity, company, organization must assist the chinese state and national intelligence collection. you're talking about the founder who wrote an e o ode to the nat.
7:26 am
this is someone who is deeply embedded. maria: i feel like american companies have been so interested in getting their foothold into the chinese economy to be able to sell to 1.4 billion people, they for foo protect their own products. the chinese are at a part where they can compete with the u.s. right there and probably beat the u.s. in a number of ways. >> this is the problem, people weren't doing the long-term thinking on what it means to go into china. two decades worth of tech transfer jv, this has consequences. china's share of the fortune global 500 is almost the same as the u.s. the question is, are companies prepared to compete with chinese corporate as they go out with the backing of the state and people are looking at china's strategy as the china market, not the effect of china on all their global markets. this can be very disruptity manufacture out of the 30 largest banks, 13 are chinese.
7:27 am
the top five are chinese. the biggest banks in the world are chinese. the banking sector has had a tough time getting a real foothold in terms of owning 51%. ubs is, and jp morgan got waivers and licenses. senator marco rubio wrote a wall street journal op ed that you can't trust a chinese audit. this is his point in the op ed. he's publishing for a new bill -- pushing for a few bill to ensure u.s. listed companies comply with american financial reporting roles. the senator writes this, many chinese businesses are listed on the u.s. stock exchanges but beijing's intrasignage ensures that american investors often don't get a true picture of those company's financial health. you look at a company like alibaba, where are the profits? they go through so many different areas in i think that's partly what he's referring to. >> sure. on one hand, the chinese used this global system, tomorrow is the anniversary of d-day of course where you have really the beginning of america's global presence. the architects that came after
7:28 am
that and set up an american order that lasted 7 70 years, i think that ended in 2014 when you had crimea and the south china sea happening at that point. authothey are talking china as s the free trader. for them to use our system and create their own advantages by having the ultimate goal of surpassing us is something that can't happen anymore. maria: today is the 30 year anniversary of tianemen square where the chinese government cracked down on protesters who wanted freedoms. many people were killed in this. they won't know about this in china. they will censor google and all news. no chinese can read the facts of what happened. american companies need to have their eyes wide open going into operating with a company that's completely different approach than the u.s.'s democracy. do you think we're going to get
7:29 am
a trade deal, bottom line? >> i think in the end you'll having that won't a amount to much. xi-jinping lied to barack obama about the south china sea. what you have won't change the nature of long-term u.s.-china competition. so the business community has got to be ready for this. maria: maybe we'll get a deal but it's not going to be a big deal because it's impossible to change cultures. >> it's not going to change what they want. it's not going to change their means of getting it. maria: i couldn't agree more. how do you move the needle on something that's cultural, stealing i.p., forcing the transfer of technology. congrats on the book. we'll be following your work. maria: jonathan joining us there on china. reigning in big tech, apple's ceo tim cookies hitting back onal lee gas stations of -- on allegations of an apple monopoly. microsoft taking on men's grooming details coming up, stay with us. ♪ here it goes, yeah.

7:34 am
points. the nasdaq up 45, two thirds of a percent. next hour we will get the may adp report, the expectation is for 180,000 jobs added to the economy in the month of may, after a huge rally on wall street yesterday on powell's comments. the dow industrials up 512 points yesterday, better than 2%. the s&p was up 58 points. also better than 2%. and the nasdaq was up 194 points, that was 2.65% higher. the momentum continues this morning in europe. european indices are higher across the board. the cac in paris is up 27. the dax in germany is up 42. in asia overnight mixed story. japan was the best performer. the nikkei average up 1.8%. our top story this half hour, targeting technology. the house judiciary committee gearing up for an anti-trust investigation into major technology companies promising a top to bottom review of the market power held by giant technology platforms. this as apple's ceo, tim cook,
7:35 am
is denying an a an apple monopo. joining us right now is judge andrew napolitano. good to see you. what do you think? >> it's a unusual for the house judiciary commi committee to shw the identical investigation being done by the justice department and for the justice department to be shadowing the identical investigation that's being done by the federal trade commission. it's also unusual for them to announce the existence of these investigations before anything happens. the doj of course can sue. it can also indict. the ftc can change rules or adjudicate big tech folks as having violated rules and the house of representatives can initiate legislation to change things. stated differently, they're all going after the tech giants because of the perception that they are too big and, therefore, need to be regulated. that perception i suggest to you is so contrary to free market principles and can only harm the
7:36 am
consumer in the long run. so without which there is nothing of anti-trust law, emily knows this, is is there harm to the consumer. tim cook could have all the sharp elbows he wants and engage in all the price discrimination he wants but if the consumer has not been harmed, there is no anti-trust case. that's the bottom line. when they did this with microsoft, it took six years of investigation before a single document was filed in court. so i think we're going to be talking about this for a long time. maria: how do you know if the consumer was harmed? doesn't google right now represent 90% of all searches? they are obviously dominant. >> yes. it's the doj's job, if they're going to pursue google -- let's say the doj decides -- i don't think it will be this doj. this will take so long, assuming the president is reelected in 2020, this wouldn't be resolved
7:37 am
until after 2024, whatever doj it is, the job is to represent to a judge, not a jury, that the consumer has been harmed. cases like this are usually very, very technical. on the technical side, how did google get so big, how does it operate. on the economic side, who was harmed by it. is there a trial? there is rarely a trial. these cases usually end in some sort of a settlement so the government can claim victory. maria: they're having hearings on june 11th. the journal reported identifying five senators and four congressman to watch as lawmakers focus on technology companies, including elizabeth warren, chuck schumer, josh holly, along with doug collins and ro kon a a. doug collins is our guest later on in the show. >> this is grandstanding by both congress and by the regulator whose are trying to make names for themselves. they're the great crusaders out here. the fact we're talking so much about the doj gets this, ftc
7:38 am
gets that. it's like you guys are arguing over who gets what percentage of nothing. that's what this comes down to. i want to turn it back to what this means from a legal standpoint. what can regulators do over a long period to remedy, say, alphabet/google's share of the search market? what would be the remedy there if they said these guys control the search market, it is hurting consumers, according to the judge. what can they do? >> google is such an efficient instrument for ascertaining information. the prosecutors themselves in the courtroom during the trial are going to be using google. it's almost absurd that they would claim that it has to be broken up. dagen: emily can get in here. >> maria put her finger on it. what harm is there to the consumer. what does it cost you? dagen: i can go through the harm to the consumer. emily's an attorney.
7:39 am
i'm curious what she thinks. maria: there's more to this, not just the fact that they're so big. the house republicans are wanting to know why they skeanser conservative -- censor conservative conversation. >> i wanted to get your insight on -- much has been made over the supreme court allowing the lawsuit to proceed that apple is setting market prices based on selling their app. can you tell us how that would dove tail in with these investigations on the merit. >> that's an interesting case. that's a class action case, brought by people who claim i bought an app from apple for 99 bucks, i'm just going to use rounded numbers. apple bought it for 99-cents. what value did apple add to it to justify the increase in price from 99-cents to $99. now, the old rule was forget it. you don't like it, go buy it from the person who sold it to apple from 99-cents.
7:40 am
the new rule after the supreme court ruling is wait a minute, you can't even find this guy who created it for 99-cents. he may have no assets and you had no financial relationship with him, therefore you can sue apple. sounds like it's a small deal. it's a huge deal. it's a class action. so who is in the class? everybody who has an app from apple. that's probably a quarter of the earth. [ laughter ] dagen: here's how consumers get hurt. when facebook basically abuses their private information and they lie to the users on facebook about who has access to it. facebook and google combined control roughly two-thirds of all online advertising. how are they using our data? are they monday tie monetizing l information. why wouldn't you have a problem with these giants in online advertising basically abusing our personal information and tracking our movements all over the internet and making money off of it and maybe
7:41 am
over-charging the businesses who advertise on the internet. >> i agree with you. but it is absurd for the federal government to go after somebody for violating privacy when the federal government is the biggest violator of privacy in the country. they can't do it with a straight face. you are right, they do violate privacy. i don't have to use them. but i can't avoid the nsa. dagen: you can't avoid the internet. you could argue in a court of law that you can't avoid the internet. if you are on the internet, they are abusing your information. these two companies, facebook and google. >> that's an area where they violated the rights of everybody's private information that makes its way into somebody else's hands. the government does it as well. >> there needs to be no more cambridge analytica. dagen: this went on for years and years. it was going on before cambridge analytica and facebook said they stopped the practice and it continued, of where they were accessing information of friends. if you did a poll, they had access not to the individual doing the poll but all of the
7:42 am
data and interactions of their friends. >> the regulators need to set up an enforcement mechanism, there needs to be precedent set here. >> i'm a great defender of the fourth amendment which guarantees to right to be left alone only regulates the government. i hate to say this. what privacy is left? is there an expectation of privacy? there should be. we all expect some privacy. but it's dissipating right before our eyes. maria: coming up, keeping kids safe, apple changing the app store to better protect children, it says. and microsoft's new joint venture, the sweet smelling details when we come back. ♪ life changes. ♪ you wake up, ain't nothing the same. ♪ and life changes. ♪ you can't stop it, oh, yeah, that's gonna be a good one. ♪ (playing)

maria: welcome back. apple quietly making changes after its developer event on monday. new app store guidelines focus on kids' apps. joining us now the cyber guy, kurt knutsson in l.a. tell us what apple is doing. >> monday at the big worldwide developer's conference up north of here, in san jose, thousands of people in attendance, the largest event i've seen so far attended and just after the event they dropped a hidden
7:52 am
headline. and that is, that the guidelines for the app store are changing dramatically for app develop des that intend to market to kids. two big things coming out of this. no longer will they be able to use third party ads to get to kids. at the same time, they will not be allowed to use third party trackers. we've seen so much in the news, reporting here about the washington post experiment where they found that 5400 trackers were in one person's monthly use of their iphone when they're not even using their iphone, they're sending information out. kids apps in the past have had trouble with this. curious world coming under fire for sending a child's name, their location, and a lot of other details straight to facebook, incorporated. apple is saying if you violate these rules, we're tightening up privacy, you are going to be picked oukicked out of the app .
7:53 am
>> notwithstanding the approval voiced at the conference, the question is whether there was ash particulaarticulated sentmed this take so long. >> you won't hear that in that audience. you did hear a lot of sort of relief sayinged not o sighed no. what they talked about was a related theme, that is the sign-in to apple feature that will be coming. that is the ability to use apple i.d. credentials to sign into other things that we use on a regular basis. the only ones really capitalizing that market is google and facebook. those two will see huge competition here. because as dagen points out, facebook has just done a splendid job of proving to us a that we cannot trust them with our privacy and at the same time, apple is really embracing despite their occasional hint of the lapses where how come this didn't happen already with
7:54 am
regard to this tightening of the app store, the number one rule there is revenue is why that didn't happen. the fact of the matter is, they're going to do well in this space. that's going to be a big improvingment for all of us, whether talking about for our kids or our privacy in general, what's left of it, anyway. >> kurt, any indication that, say, alphabet and amazon are doing similar things in terms of guidelines like this? >> you know, they're typically responsive to apple in this regard. i think what's going to be interesting is apple like the sign-in he feature as it relates to kids' apps being protected and us just being protected, you're going o to see them tighn those rules in that fashion. their credibility is on a fine line, whether alphabet or google or dealing with amazon. amazon at the same time has become more and more focused on generating revenue from advertisements and not just being a retailer. we've got our eye on them. butabutapple never takes this

>> a good reaction yesterday shows me that i think people don't really understand, the fd i think the people don't think bernanke or yellen are not in charge powell is risk manager i don't know why everybody was so excited yesterday he said he wants to cut because he is trying to keep housing market alive i think going to sake several cuts to keep that, the -- i think that the adp is important for me, as a day trader i am concerned about the labor markets getting to dregs of society. >> what do you mean. >> that is very weak number 27,000 jobs added to the economy, in the month of may, 27,000 is the number we were expecting 180,000, this is much weaker-than-expected your reaction to this number. >> i am not surprised. this is why powell is saying he is going to have to cut you have to think from a business perspective, unemployment is so low right now, when you have to hire that next marginal person they are going to cost more not the most
8:16 am
prouf people the most prouf people have jobs i think that is a big thing that is causing what traders call overhead supply, a fancy jargon for there is a lot of stock that people are not willing to pick up right now i think that is going to continue, and i think this is the type of catalyst could cause a career, people like me want to sell bonds, and buy stock, so you know, if we can see s&p down 2650, that is not a big deal but that is where i would lock and load. >> were you doing that in may nasdaq down 8% dow transports down more than 10% a rough month were you adding to location. >> i was in disease taking risk expours off 2800 in march doing profit-taking we are still here in may i really need the market to see more of a 10% correction for me to apply for clients wasn't may
8:17 am
was that may was not interesting we didn't go down enough. >> 10% correction tech stocks monday's close. >> you know what i am a dot com did tech isn't where i am blinging. >> who you buy if markets got to say you 2650 level what do you think would be best opportunity you need to see time and price if not tech where do you think you might see the opportunities. >> you know i think that you want to see some broader based indices i don't feel a particular place that i need to go hunting for, i tell you one thing i don't want to do, i don't think investors northeast to be necessarily looking for defensive pays the trap outside of 2650 scomliez exposure you see chatter bess consumer stages high dividend plays a trap because people are sort of trying to buy bond substitutes i think if you like beta stuff look at tech
8:18 am
if you saw tech go down 10, 15%, that is a high beta play of what i am doing. >> we have to talk about fed here the 27,000 increase in jobs is much lower than expected, the federal reserve, yesterday, jay powell sparked a rally because he said that they are ready they will be at the table, if the trade war escalates and fed needs to cut interest rates sparked a really a number like this leads you to believe slowing quite a bit only one number one month adp the labor department friday but still -- >> remember jay powell's records what did he say he said we will act as appropriate to help sustain economic growth here. that is exactly what we're talking about here this numbers real indicator what is going on what do we seed to sustain job growth to sustain economic growth he o overly, overall. >> this is one-off or something that changing the conversation? >> i don't think a one-off, also another thing powell said
8:19 am
people kind of forget the one thing i have on white board, listen when the federal fund rates start getting ahead of 10-year treasury. maria: they are it is. >> it is it would take two fed cuts to do that so again, just like in december, just like yesterday, i think a lot of people are misreading the fed. and i am one says don't watch the fed all the time, i have been watching fed since disease like a a hubbing telling that a guy like me forget that stuff sul i am interested. >> are you saying you think fed is going to cut rates. >> yes. >> yes, i think it is, and we had a 20% consensus rate kraut monthor so ago popped up to 60 i think should point up to one hundred percent. dagen: it is one hundred percent a rate consensus for a rate cut is north of 90%. maria: that is right. >>. dagen: before yesterday even, are markets pricing in a rate
8:20 am
the possibility north cut north of 90%. >> brian moynihan did not believe that said to me yesterday at new york economic club watch. maria: will fed cut rates this year? what does your gut tell me don't it will me what your economist says. >> nofrng they will. >> you don't think they will. >> unless wrong in a trade i think -- that is personal belief so you can take that for a grainy of salt i am telling you unless something goes really wrong unemployment rate -- the economy is going to move long two percent plus growth growth rate. maria: menial, th -- menial smallest gain since expansion march 2010 serious decline pullback from what we have been seeing up 27,000 estimate up 180,000. >> again, this is why i think we're seeing again that jargon
8:21 am
supply inability to break out past 3,000 on the s&p. and i think if we look past day-to-day to day, and this bounce from the may declines, may was bad but it wasn't huge. >> interesting what adp says lake shortages impeding job growths laifrz at brick-and-mortar retailers are hurting you have seen a mixed story in brick and mortar has been hurting. >> game stop, what is going on there, just yesterday getting hurt by tourism being done a lot happening here crosscurrents, number like adp going to mean bonds rally stocks could get pressure. >> good to see you tune in friday morning coverage may jobs' report jobs in america. we'll be right back. i'm working to make each day a little sweeter.
