you why want or as you said, it's back to basics a we're ill ending earnings season right now as we have the retails coming out and truly, longer term earnings are what's going to move stocks. so look at the earnings of your company that you're buying and more importantly, what are the future prosents for them and now trade is something you may have to consider in your future prospects and it's not the oy thing you should be focusing on and the last thing h ye to add to everybody, and maybe think about a partial, get yourself to where you're making a more d rationalision stoo what about the impact of tariffs on those earnings especially if the tariffs are going to be with us for a while and we're going to start hearing from the instries most impacted by those tariffs and they'llav to ratchet down expectations,
don't you think? >> i think if you look at the action of the last few days w rt itlly was a repricing of expectations on and if you look at some of the other indicators that your viewers look at particularly bond xs fixed income goals that to a lesser extent volatility index and those three didn't have crazy moves. it wasn'tike people are panicking and it's more of a goinging of stocks that's on right now and bob did a big hit at the top of the show and if you lookt the apples and the 3ms that are theoretically most impacted by this and they'll have tse stocks is over the next few weeks and everybody will try to figure this out and we're not used to seeing the sausage being made, if you will and the negotiations taking place right in front of us and so because of that, every piece of tia negon is adding some volatility. certainly is. j.j., thank you so much.

and we'll just have to wait to find out. the president, however, doesn't want the fed to wait at all. he said in a tweet today china willin be pumoney into their system and probably reducing interest rates as always? order to me up for the business they are and will be edsing. if theal reserve ever did a match, it would be game over, we win and traders who bet on the fed funds rate think they know the answer, too and the january contract is an 87% probabutity that the fed rates by then and that looks to be way ahead of where fed officials are right now and he said, quote, over the medium term, i see the biggest risk coming fromrade policy, uncertainty and slower growth. right now the data are noisy and we need more time and evidence to judge whether the risks materialize. there's good reason for the fed to be confused been the u.s. economy hasn't faced this level of trade barriers since the 1930s. the only true answer for the fed, no one knows how tariffs
will affect the onomy, but it appears we're going to find out. for "nightly business report," i'm steve liesman. there has been a renaissance along the west coast, and the trade war with china may be slowing demand in a key market. our elon mui has the ory. >> the united states is the biggest exporter of liquefied natural gas in the world. most of it is shipped out fromr als in louisiana and texas. that's drivingn investment boom along the gulf coast. the $10 billion in parish today, a backdro foramerica's energy dominance. >> you are not only making a nation wealthier, but you are making america sger by build the future of american energy independence. we are independent. we don't need>> anybody. he timing is a little awkward. coming jt oneay after china being. >>ed up tariffs on unlng from
20% to 25% and the latest salvo in whats now a full-fledged trade war. >> and we don't need to be ripped offy the rest of the world either because those days are over. >> china is one of the most important markets for lng and it has 10% of lngrt exand that is growing faster than anywhere else in the world and analysts say the tariffs are already slowing down u.s. shipments and we counted 26t vessels t left the u.s. for china last year and 17 of them left in the first half of the yr and only nine tankers left in the second half and the first two months of this year, only two vessels were bound for china. the higher tariff rate will take fect in june and the consequences could be felt long after this. two lng are ionruction and four additional projects have been approved for the grown light regulators. 50 million is at stake.

deliveries in april. the compa handed over 24% fewer planes in the first four months othe year when compared to 2018. the reported decline was not surprising. the grounding of its popular 737 max aircraft halted deliveries for a second month. much like boeing, apple finds itself caught in the middle of the trade war with china. tariffs are costingpa the comny and just how big those costs could grow. john fort has the pdetails. >>ntil now the risk was for apple's actual sales in china where th trade battle was taking a toll on consumer appetite for high-priced iphone, president trump is threaten to pose a $25% tariff on an additional $3,000 worthf goods coming into china including iphone, ipads, macs and the bulk of apple's hardware and that'shat the tax apple would have to pay.
apple would have to raise the price of an iphone to 14% to pass along that cost tos. custom that would be an additional $164 and changfor $1,099 iphone 10x, for emple. would apple have to hike prices and maybe not across the board and apple shifts iphone pricing and can adjust prices for different storage options of n different scrypes. so it could hide a price hike somewhat and apple could also absorb it if apple chooses that route and jpm estimates that new tariffs would cs appl earnings per share by 14% in the worst-case scenario. for "nightly business report," i'm john fort. a so how these tariffs likely to impact the iphone market going forward? ian cher, executived tore of cnet. welcome back. >> hi, how are you doing? >> if you are tim cook, what are you going to do? he's loweredrices for iphones
in china because of lower demand over there and now that gariffs arng up, prices, are they going to have to go up or will they have to eat that increase. what do you think? >> it is unclear and i think it's going to be interesting to see and we're talking about a lot of mey that comes from a 25% increase in the tariff. at some point, some of that has to be passed on to consumers in o eory, but it's going to be really interestinge how apple navigates it. i imagine if the prices do go u we're going to hear a lot of belly aching fromilicon valley in conference calls after quarterly earnings and what not before they ever show us a price tag. >> what about the fact that people seem to beanging on to their phones a little bit longer either because they're waiting for the newest upgrade or because the smartphones a pretty good right now anyway and they don't necessarily need an upgrade. you couple that with tariffs and it really mightave a big dent on the bottom line for apple.
>> yeah. i mean, i think the larger things going on here are definitely that the smartphone market is slowing down growth. i believe, 2018, according to some analysts, was the first year so far when we actually saw a decline in sales and it' something that is definitely in the -- in the overa t issuet they are facing. apple generally has been able to suck up most of the profits in the smartphone a industry if anyone is particularly protected about that it would be apple and think about the companies that didn't clear a profit they'll be really fuelling it from this. >> are you surprised the magnitude of th increase and the tariffs and the impt it will have on silicon there's been tension between washington and silicon valley and are they going to punish the chinese in this regard with the tariffs, do yoit think? >>ut question, adding a tariff to technology which is
one of the largest ecomic drivers in california and throughout the country, it'sy certaiaying something, right? but there's also the larger thing which is thatat thees between silicon valley and washington, d.c., have mostly been philosophical. they've been about stuff like the supposed censorship of conservative voices and all of those types of other thing, right? how russian interference came out and allf these thing that have gone on between facebook, google and twitter and washington, d.c., when this comes to philosophical ideas. these are things that people are buying at christmas and putting into trees. that's a whole consumer, and it's about suddenly paying more for what they want whether anyone will be able to weather that storm. >> aren't we all ia share from cnetning us tonight. >> thank you. disney gains control of hulu
