An index of small-cap stocks just notched its first record-high close since 2018

"Look at some of the stocks on the move and the sectors of the move on Carol Master along with Bloomberg News process that reporter Sarah Pounds Act, both of us in our Bloomberg Interactive Brokers studio. Let me just do big picture. Definitely risk on trade 473 names in the S and P 500 higher today 31 lower to unchanged And if I take a look at those major industry groups in the S and P 500, there are 11 all of them up. For the day energy at the top of the pack of 3.8%, followed by real estate of about 2.3 bottom of the pack information technology, but still up about 9/10 of a percent Sarah Ponds Act, Man, It wasn't the week. Well, maybe it's starting more like the week. It's ending. More like the week it started. See, that's what kind of weak it's been, and there's been a lot of stuff in the middle, right. We have come full circle. Granted, Today's moves were not as drastic or as large as Monday's, but they were reminiscent of them in the middle of the week. We saw that Monday rotation, Fayed was attacked, Take the lead once again. That was not the case today. At the end of the day, we just heard it. Russell 2000 more than 2.3% today at a record high. This is the first record high for the Russell since 2018. We had not seen it. It really is. It's been got. It's getting close, right and just never breaks it right, exactly exactly have been getting close. But we have not been able to see small caps really breakthrough. While today was the day also a record high for the S and P 500 today, as well as the equal weight version of the S and P, So we're seeing breath come into this market. Well, that's what I was going to say. What's the significance about the small caps in the large caps right to see the Three indexes that you just put it point out there all hit records. So the idea is that sure you can see the SNP it records. You can see the NASDAQ hit records, but they're very, very top heavy. So what that means is that it's really representative of just a few stocks, many of them tech thing, names all year long pulling higher seeing Russell 2000 at record seeing the equal weight version of the S and P. It records What this shows you is that it's not just a couple of stocks pulling you hire. Rather, it is many more and you are seeing more participation, which is seen as a healthy climb. What's the fundamentals behind it? You know, it's a great question. So a lot of hope this week on the optimism over the visor vaccine is truly It's unbelievable. When you see these stark comparisons between the Fizer vaccine news, then you see Record covert 19 cases. You see restrictions coming in what the reality is and what investors are saying is that the vaccine news helps you look beyond all of this. That helps you realize that there will be an end. At some point. I hear it all The time. Markets are forward looking mechanism, and that's exactly what they're trying to do what you got visibility right? And even if it's still a few months away, or maybe it's into next year well into next year.

Comparing Trump and Biden's plans to end the COVID-19 pandemic

"Biden ends up winning the presidential election, he'll have plenty of campaign promises to live up to that includes lofty goals. The former vice president has said he'd get started as soon as he's sworn in. If I'm your president on day one. We'll implement the national strategy I've been laying out since March would develop. And deploy rapid test with results available immediately. Five the honor of being president. I will end the Muslim ban on day one. I'd make the changes on the corporate taxes on day one day one I'm sending to the United States Congress, a immigration bill providing a pathway for 11 million undocumented, and I'm gonna make sure every dreamer is protected. I'm gonna have to wait and see whether a potential Joe Biden administration can actually hit the ground running on all of those policies for more. I'm joined by Jennifer Epstein Political reporter covering the Biden campaign for Bloomberg News, Jennifer Thanks for being with me. Thanks for having me. President Trump has downplayed the severity of the Corona virus, even after contracting it himself. But Joe Biden said he'd make some big changes if he became president. What would he do differently? It goes from from everything from encouraging mask wearing by leading by example on that, as he has during the campaign wearing a mask himself. All the time, except for when he's kind of out of microphone, socially distanced from anybody else on stage, launching a whole of federal government response to the pandemic that Would be aggressively different. I think than the trump planet he would not be fighting with from the scientists. He would be listening to them, he has said. Deploying the resources of the federal government. He plans to use the Defense Production act more aggressively than President Trump has to kind of get industry to do its part, whether it's with Peopie production. For vaccine production down the line. He has a plan for the distribution of the vaccine, even just it in defending the affordable care act. He says that that will make Vaccine distribution easier and free and also will protect people who end up having long term health. Issues because of their covert cases, long issues or or whatever else So it really is A is a pretty comprehensive approach. Um, that touches on a whole lot of different areas. I think you know it's the public health response and then obviously also an economic response. He says that he will Talked to governors and mayors. About mask wearing to try Tio encourage them, Tio put in their own mask mandates. Hey, can't you know really order a federal mandate kind of some of the stuff that the trump people have said. But he can certainly encouraged mask wearing as I said, before, it seems like he really just wants to bore down in every single area where that the government can help fight. This pandemic is kind of a piece of what he plans to do. Joe Biden would also inherit a Jennifer A. An economy right now that has been battered by the cove in 19 crisis We mentioned at the top of the show that AH eight million Americans have been pushed into poverty. People are scrambling to keep their homes to put food on the table to find work that may not return. Since this pandemic has taken hold of the country. Does Joe Biden have a plan for dealing with that economy should he inherited asked becoming president. Yeah, he does. He has this economic plan called Build back better, which is a couple trillion dollars of spending. Ah, that's meant to stimulate the economy. I think It will depend a little bit on the results of the election. Whether Democrats when the Senate if he wins the presidency, and whether there's any activity during the lame doc session of Congress on the House and Senate, Canon and the White House can agree. On stimulus. You know a couple of trillion dollars stimulus spending now through the end of the year, or if people are going to continue to kind of be in need and and the government not act in which case after Inauguration Day. Biden would move very quickly on Ah stimulus bill. I think that the size of it is still to be determined and how much of that Polls on some of the ideas that are in his gold back better plan, which are things like clean energy, spending, health and homemade at a nursing care and and things like that, which I think you know, a lot of people would say are badly needed during the pandemic, so will depend on sort of what happens. Before he were to become president. But there is definitely intention to either add to whatever has done during the lame duck session this year or to come through with it with a bigger plan than the couple trillion dollars that's being talked about. Or had been been negotiated a bit between Nancy Pelosi and the administration in the last couple of months. This

Bloomberg News deals reporter Crystal seas with us. She's on the phone in New York City. Crystal good to have you here with us. I mean, this is a blockbuster. Yeah, it's the biggest Theo As we expected. You know, a Ramco last year to be the big hero turned out to be a 29 billion dio. And in here we come 35 billion, so this really would be the biggest deal. It would be a monster deal. Why do people want to invest in it? Where's the appetite coming from? This's a story of a very much for player in the fintech space and all these impact player. It is a competition like that in this papal pasta then, but a plus the J. P. Morgan Really. It has a lot of influence in China because somehow take over the shares. Market shares. Traditional banks Path popular in China. And Ollie paid, which is the product that and operate with. It's probably the biggest player in China, so I mean that it's on Alone just share volume that they process gives them the valuation and this race that they could justify So Krystal is it a company that will continue to dominate in China and in Asia specifically or did something a company that we're going to see spread throughout the globe? Ultimately, Interestingly, 40% of the use of proceeds is actually going to be used for overseas payment extension on DH, although that's sounds like they're expanding out of China. Very much focused on Chinese customers.

When you go to Paris with me, you will feed a luxury stores with on Ali pay Q R code so That is that is what they want. That's what their expansion is focusing on. But it's very much so a China Pacific play and not even within Asia is very much a China. People play well on Krystal. It's also a Chinese listing. I feel like it's not lost on any of the US any of us that this wasn't a US listing. They're not on the nicely. They're not in the NASDAQ. They II Po'ed in Hong Kong and Shanghai. I'm assuming in large part because of the scrutiny Chinese listed firms are under here in the U. S. But How significant is it that this thing did not price in New York City? He has the biggest. Whoever is not a U. S listing is also is the Chinese company that is listening in China and Hong Kong that the concurrent listening It's interesting. This has not been done before. Some companies have tried Teo a simultaneous thing. And will be the first to pull it off. But more importantly, Andi Ali pay and we have. Hey, we're under White House scrutiny just last month.

Apple unveils new iPhone 12 that is 5G capable

"At Ludlow. Apple is showing off its latest line of new iPhones at its big virtual event today, So Ed, give us the details. Yes, A For new iPhones, the broadest range of screen sizes inspects the Apple's really done in a new generation release and at their center. Is that they are all five g capable, which is the thing we've been waiting for. Right? There's been a lot of marketing from all the stakeholders around the advent of five g and the faster speeds. Connectivity data downloads that that will bring, But what we got was the iPhone 12. It's $700.799 dollars 6.18 screen also an iPhone 12, many, which is $699.5.4 inches, and then what Apple did, of course, was being pro versions of the 12, which it did with the previous 11 generations to the iPhone. 12 pro starts at $999 on Then there's a iPhone 12 pro Max, a bigger version $1099 with a 6.7 in Scream, which is Apple's largest ever display, and they've made sort of efforts to update the technology beyond five G connectivity is well, we see, you know significant updates when it comes to the camera technology. Apple is using its own for a 14 process. Er, 50% faster speeds when it comes to processing. And they've made some redesign as well. You know, in recent generations, the iPhone we've kind of been used to these kind of curved sides, but they've squared them off on. They've also in the highest spec models introduced Lied our technology to the camera and some advanced camera capabilities around video recording on photos. So you know this is Very broad range of new generation is kind of like something for everyone Eyes. One analyst described it to me. It's like walking into the ice cream store and having all of the flavors available to you. There is going to be a phone that you want, but really it it's called. The thing that Apple is really banking on is that this five g connectivity will spur hundreds of millions of us around the planet that have older generations of iPhone. Upgrade to use a five G version because the people with five G will be experiencing what better phone calls better Internet. So the idea goes. They think it's the Apple says that it's tested five G in Mohr than 100 markets around the world, and that it's found that it does give faster speeds for downloading data. And said, the speed is one thing hypothetically. It would also because of the data Cassey give you the ability to do functions which we can't yet do of our phones. In practice, however, It's not so clear if that's going to be the case. We know that third parties tested five G markets here in the US, for example, and they found that the speeds that came with it and the connectivity was not that much greater than existing for G lt can activity. Sources also told Bloomberg that's some Apple employees who were testing this new generation of iPhone. Actually found themselves that undercurrent US five G networks, the speed and the connectivity wasn't that great? Much greater than 40. And lt anyway, so that is slightly concerning. But as we know, you know, Verizon is kind of leading this wet leading the way with it and T and T Mobile as well investing and spending time and building out five GS infrastructure in this In this country. But, of course, another big market. Apple is China, where almost a third of phone sold a five g compatible that five GM destruction. There is much further ahead here in the U. S. You know five G phones from Samsung and Google, which read the existing offers on the market. They only account for a tiny fraction of handsets out there, so it is exciting. Five G is expected to be a big drive of Apple in terms of people upgrading. But right now it's still a little bit in the infancy in terms of adoption, all right, thanks very much for the time.

Boris Johnson wants to 'Build Back Greener'

"Know at the top of the show we heard how British Prime Minister Boris Johnson promised to build back greener, and it's have you that the International Monetary Fund subscribes to ahead of the annual meeting in Washington. This month the IMF told its member governments. They can create millions of jobs and boost recovery prospects if they use higher public investment to respond to the severe economic challenge posed by Corona virus well, actually brought he's a climate and energy reporter at Bloomberg News joins me now to discuss this. Actually what is a green recovery and why do economists think it's the right way out of the current recession. Typically economists are looking to be able to create jobs in times of recession, and it happens in two phases. After an immediate shock economists inject a lot of money into the system to be able to allow for rescue. So a lot of people will become conservative of won't go out and spend money or they may lose their job and may not be able to make the rent next month or the mortgage next month. and. So you need to do the rescue. I what comes after that is once the economy starts to get out of the bottom and needs to go up. That's recovery comes in and what economists find is that for about every million dollars that a public money that is spent you can create between two and ten jobs. In the infrastructure space and that is why IMF has come out with the statement. This week saying that if government spend a lot of money on infrastructure than they are going to create a lot of jobs and a lot of jobs good for the economy Chris here is that they wanted to be green infrastructure because we want a lot of green infrastructure going forward. Are Any countries actually doing this. They are what happened early on is that we had to wait to get a signal from these countries to understand whether they've moved on from the rescue as into recovery. When the earliest countries to do it was Germany Germany put out a one hundred, thirty billion euro package that was all tied to green infrastructure. So renewable electricity, clean hydrogen subsidies for electric vehicles, EV charging networks and this has been then followed up by the EU which has put five hundred billion euros. Now, we're going to expect that as you talked about Boris Johnson that will expect some of that money coming through in the UK as well, and if Joe Biden President, he has a promised that he will push for green recovery in the US. What. Then would agree in recovery look like. So in in. Principle the thing that has changed from the last financial crisis is that this time around alternatives to fossil fuels are actually cheaper and governments will used the money that they have in hand to be able to spend that money into projects like renewable energy. But also things that we've probably not spend money on for a long time but we. Should be so that would be either repairing roads and bridges are really retrofitting homes with more energy. Efficient windows are ceilings so that you can reduce your energy bills, these old sound set of boring things, but they are really important to be able to cut emissions, but also bring in lots and lots of jobs, and that's exactly what we need right now Just cookie on Boris's bars Johnson's plan. How realistic is that? It's it's very realistic. So one of the things that has changed you know the big promise he has made is about building lots and lots of off-shore wind turbines. Offshore Wind was considered extremely expensive probably ten years ago and it's It's prices have come down and it's costs down really rapidly partially because we've been subsidizing subsidizing here in the UK. But also generally across Europe the deployment of these technologies and what we. Know again from economists, is that new technologies follow something called a learning curve for every doubling off the amount of the technology deployed out in the field you get a certain reduction in cost, and so the foster deploy it, the foster costs fall and what bars Johnson has recognized is offshore wind is now ready for the big time

The Federal Government to outline plan for equitable distribution of COVID-19 vaccine

"Federal government is outlined a sweeping plan to make Corona virus vaccines available for free to all Americans in a report to Congress and published in a playbook for states and localities. Federal health agencies in the Defense Department sketched out a plan for a vaccination campaign to start in January, ramping up to each American to reach any American who wants a shot. The problem with this is that in an Associated press poll taken earlier this year, only about half of Americans say they'll take that shot. Most say they're worried about the safety of the vaccine. Every American should be able to get the vaccine. By April, However, Health and human services official Paul Mango tells Bloomberg News. Ah, vaccine in October is possible, but November and December all more likely. That timetable is more aggressive than those of drug company executives and other U. S. Health officials. The nation's top infectious disease expert, Dr Anthony Fauci, has said Americans shouldn't expect a vaccine to be widely available before mid 2021.

The University of Utah, Jack Daniel's Whiskey, and Carnival Cruise Lines Hit in Ransomware Attacks

"Do the University of UTAH? Jack. Daniels. Whiskey. And Carnival cruise lines all have in common. Well Friday last last Friday. The University of Utah revealed that it had paid a ransomware gang four, hundred and fifty seven dollars. And fifty nine cents. Four, hundred, Fifty, seven, thousand. Yes I got that would have been. Four hundred and fifty, seven, thousand dollars and fifty, nine, hundred, and fifty thousand. Fifty nine dollars. which sort of begs the question or they get that number? Now that I finally got it out correctly, it's probably bitcoin. Nine dollars like half a million bucks. It's like the Bitcoin version thing they probably would. Yes somewhere. BITCOIN that turned out to be that. And what's interesting is that was not to obtain the decryption key for their files. They didn't need it because it turns out that very few of their files were encrypted but rather her and Leo I know this goes to you know the thing that were you just kind of like. Grit your teeth to purchase the promise. From the extortionists. That the student information that had been exfiltrated beforehand while. Yeah that's not be publicly released your Seymour. One this is big. Yeah. Yeah. They're they're they're just they're hoping that the there is honor among thieves and that these guys will keep their word in senators. Word is that if if you want others to pay you yes. That's it. Exactly. If, of course, ransomware gangs or not all the same but and didn't we hear no, it wasn't It was cannon that had some information leaked last week that we reported on and so so Lawrence over at bleeping computer has said that you know they assumed since the jetsons cannon got themselves back up relatively quickly that they had paid the ransom. But now since the extortionists in that instance were leaking the information, maybe cannon had restored from backups and said, Nah, we're not paying your stinking ransom and the bad guy said. Here comes your You know your your private corporate next decade plans for the future. How do you? How do you want that? How how do you feel about that being leaked? Anyway. So the in this case University of Utah explained. That it had dodged a major ransomware incident and that the attackers managed to encrypt only zero point zero, two percent. Of the data stored on their servers. And the university staff was easily able to restore that from backups. However, the ransomware group then threatened to release student related data see they had obtained and exfiltrated. So, the university said after careful consideration, the university decided to work with its cyber insurance provider to pay a fee to the ransomware attacker. This was done as a proactive and preventative steps to ensure information was not released on the Internet and again to the extent that such. Can Be ensured. The Cyber Insurance policy pay part of the ransom, and the university covered the remainder no tuition grant donation state or tax payer funds were used to pay the ransom thought that was an interesting explicit statement that they made. They said, the university disclosed that the attack took place a little over a month ago on July nineteenth twenty twenty and the network belonging to the Collar College of social and behavioral science was the victim. So Apparently A. A you know as a sub set of the. Entire Larger University. was where the break in occurred and there must have been some isolation there. So anyway, that is one of the three and presumably they were able to negotiate a cheaper payment in order to you know because they hit the bad guys hadn't managed to get. The bulk of the of the university stuff. But you know they did pay for they promised to not share student data, and as you said Leo, the reason that would be honored as well as you know, nearly half a million dollars. And they want to do. Yeah exactly. You got to build your credibility. Exactly And two other large and notable recent ransomware victims were Brown forman famous for their distillation of Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey. And Carnival cruises. The Jack Daniels folks said are quick actions upon discovering the attack prevented our systems from being encrypted. Unfortunately again, we believe some information including employee data was impacted. We are working closely with law enforcement as well as world class third party data security experts to mitigate and resolve this situation. As soon as possible, there are no active negotiations so. In that. So that says it sorta sounds like. Oh, in fact, a that statement from Brown forman came after Bloomberg News reported that it had received an anonymous tip of the ransomware attack a site on the dark web claiming to be run by members of the reveal strain. A ransomware says that it had obtained a terabyte of data from the Louisville Kentucky based. Brown. Foreman the site said that stolen data included contracts financial. Statements Credit Histories and internal correspondence of employees also included were screen shots of file structures documents purportedly taken during the heist. So does look like the pattern we're seeing now is because you know major companies that have the deep pockets who also have the pocket depth to now proactively backup their servers well. So it's possible for the for if if the only thing done was encryption. A golden opportunity to extract a ransom could be thwarted if the if the good guys have backups at. So now what's being done is That data pre encryption is being exfiltrated and stored somewhere. Then the data is encrypted and so we have you know we're we're we're increasingly seeing this two part attack exfiltration that the company desperately does not want to be made public. In case they have backups in which case, they would not otherwise need to pay the extortion. So you know it's not really ransomware as much as it is. Okay. We got copies of all your stuff. Shall we share it with the world? PLANO blackmail.

Launching the Cyber Intelligence News Site The Record by Recorded Future

"My whole career has been in journalism I started that at her of my college newspaper immediately came to new. York to. Intern I for the Wall Street Journal and then Bloomberg. News. Rating about startups and a little bit of technology and I got completely lucky with those positions and those beats. Him at the time startups where really starting to catch fire facebook lays in the news for. Only it's launched, but it's Very, high profile, public offering. So after covering startups That kind of was able to morph into cyber security. When the Wall Street Journal was launching more cyber coverage, they were hiring three cyber-security reporters dedicated to the beat. And I've been I've been writing about the topic ever since then for the past four years. And most recently had left the Wall Street Journal to join a publication that launch rate before the pandemic started called protocol. which was not the best timing to launch a publication. But. Yeah. No I'm reporting about cybersecurity for this new publication. The record which recorded future is launching by the time. This podcast will hopefully already be launched and I'm very excited about it. Yeah. Well, we're going to dig into some of the details about the record in a little bit but before we get to that and I'm curious we can you can you give us some insights on what it's like being a journalist on the cybersecurity beat what was that like for you shifting to that topic getting up to speed and and covering the folks who are doing their day to day business in that part of the world what was that experience like for you? Yeah. Absolutely. The topic has probably one of the steepest learning curves in. Any journalistic discipline. As I mentioned, my background is not in computer science. I did not know how to Code I didn't really know anything about state-sponsored hackers or TPS or all jargon that. Is Sort of anyone that you talked to in the industry. Uses. Like second nature or a second language for me. It was a very quick learning curve where I had to catch myself and I think maybe six months after I started covering the topic that was when the world was rocked by Vajna cry and then soon after not. Quickly that was that was kind of a trial by fire. So. Like having the resources in the backing of an organization with the the reputation of the Wall Street Journal I, mean that must have been a place to to have surround you. It was. It's it's a pretty. humbling experience when you're just out of college, you call up. You Know A. Like a CEO who's at the top of their game or a cybersecurity analyst that everyone respects and here you know twenty two year old who has no idea about anything in the industry and you and you say like, I'm I'm a reporter from the Wall Street Journal can you help explain this very basic topic for me and there they make themselves available? So. It's it's very. Nice luxury to have. Definitely when you're starting to cover something in the Wall Street Journal, itself is one of the best organizations in terms of the journalistic expertise that they have in house just being able to sit. A couple desks away from Pulitzer Prize winners or heard you know. John. Kerry who is Not. Too Far Away from from where I sat and During my time there, he wrote the book bad blood. I'm was this all over the news so it's it's just a humbling experience to be around literally thousands of journalists to are reporting about the biggest stories of the day. What what's your? What are your thoughts in terms of of the state of things when it comes to journalism covering cybersecurity in general, you know the spectrum of the types of coverage that you've seen. Do you have any thoughts on that? Yeah I. Think we're kind of at a a real inflection point where a lot of not only journalistic organizations but also the audience. Is Waking Up to the fact that we're in a different time when it comes to cybersecurity that this is a topic that affects not just to every organization of every industry, but it affects. Every government agency, it affects individuals even your grandmother who might not have any idea how they used. Basic Internet. Applications noticed that hackers trying to get her data. And so I think that I think it's a time where a lot of there's a need for more cyber security news need for more informed and educated cybersecurity journalists. I think it's really good time to be covering the industry and in terms of just answer your question bit more specifically about. Sort of wound scape. Healthy spot where some publications are focused on. The hackers, they take a look at specific events and get really detailed technical and other publications focusing on breaches news since there's a time of news with this topic I don't think that there are that many publications that sorted filled the gap to. Be Informative. Towards like sort of A. Average cyber security professional or somebody who has an interest in the topic, but isn't an expert in it So I think there's a lot of room there for extra

Impact of Biden's Choice of Kamala Harris as Running Mate

"Just dividing Picking California Senator Kamala Harris as his running mate. Let's get the what this might mean for the Democrats as they head into November for the election. Marty Shankar, chief content officer for Bloomberg News, joins US Marty. Thanks so much for joining us here. What's your initial takeaway of Kamala Harris as Joe Biden's running mate? Well, I think you know, and it's been spoken about all morning and yesterday afternoon. It's a historic pick. She is the first Whom the person of color to be on a major ticket advice. Presidential candidate and you know, it solidifies what some Think was a somewhat of a vulnerability for Joe Biden. That's with the with the black voters. And I think that you know it was an excellent choice. Well, Marty, you say that. But will there be any pushback from black voters given her record on criminal justice reform and as a prosecutor Yeah, You know, I think that's been a problem for her. If this came out Bloomberg another George stories about her role in as attorney general in California. Oh, and as a district attorney in San Francisco. She has Been criticized for being Dick really aggressive in her prosecutions and resisting remuneration for those wrongly prosecuted, But that was you know, decades ago. Um, I think that you know, it will be a line that GOP uses against her and they've already started. Um, but I think her attributes will probably be able to overcome those What do you think This means? This ticket here the way this potential campaign may unfold in the next couple of months means for financial markets here. Well, you know, I think the important thing you know no one's really talking about it. But Pamela Harris and Joe Biden. Their policies really are dependent on what happens in the Senate if the Senate remains in Republican hands. They're going to have a really hard time getting any of their policies through so I think the focus really needs to be on those important Senate races, their number of them That were supposedly safe for Republicans who are now in tossup territory. And I think place like main on Arizona. So you I think that that's really going to be a pivotal thing for markets. But I do think that if you didn't see it the other day, Ed in the former editor in chief of Barons wrote a piece in The Wall Street Journal saying that Biden presidency is going to be great for markets. Yeah, absolutely. And I think you know, market participants are already saying that we had marked as Reon yesterday. Who, you know, obviously. Is it a financier, too? The Biden campaign and so he obviously was very pleased with the comma Harris choice to It would have been his choice. Marty, what happens between now and November in the sense that Joe Biden can be a little bit unpredictable? Is there a way that he could throw this? Well, you know, when people asked the what my thoughts are on the election coming up by continually say it's Joe Biden's to lose. And there is and I think the debates coming up the three debates and the debate the vice presidential debate this just one could have A really important role in how this election place out. So yes, Bonnie. It's quite possible that Joe Biden could say something or perform. Poorly and that may have a real impact on the race, which, despite the polls, I believe is pretty close. Marty, How do you think these candidates for the president and Vice President Biden How will they campaign over the next several months is it just could be a serious of television interviews and things like that? Yes, And I think you know, like today they will do a a century a small audience of participants so she'll be distant with I'm sure with mass And that's the way it's going to be until November. I mean, Donald Trump certainly would like to make it a more on the GOP side. Would liketo have his huge rallies, But I don't think that's gonna happen, so it's going to be as usual and unprecedented campaign. Virtual events on on video and that actually made Plato Bidens and ban it because he's much better in Hello. Prompted characters rather than life. Yeah, Marty, what makes you say that? You think it's closer than the polls suggest right now? What votes? Is the pole missing? Well, you know, we did a story about a theory that when potential voters are speaking to Pollsters. They may say that they are voting for the Democrat when in fact they are going to vote for Trump. I think that the There is this phenomenon and people just not willing to tell what they're That they support Donald Trump to pollsters. So I do think that there's that element of undercounting Trump's support. Fascinating. It's going to be just amazing. Several months. It feels like every presidential election in the United States brings up some new constitutional challenges and debates and difficulties, and this one's going to be no different.

The island had been sitting sitting idle since nineteen sixty three when the famed federal prison shuttered. Its doors name of all Indians. Therefore we claim this land for Indian nations for all these reasons reasons. We feel this claim just and proper and that this land should rightfully be grants was for as long as the river show running sunshine sign Indians of all tribes hypes November nineteen sixty nine San Francisco California. That's the late. Richard Oakes one of the leaders of the movement. This island here represents no-man's-land and every man's land it represents to the to the Indians a place a sounding board where they can get the attention. Republicans they give attention of the press. I essentially government officials oaks and his fellow activists transformed Alcatraz Island into a symbol of native resistance. And while they he didn't succeed in reclaiming the island itself they thrust native American Civil Rights into the national spotlight created a wider sense cultural pride and identity among native people. The occupation was also one of the driving forces behind a shift in federal policy toward self determination for native American tribes in the nineteen seventies in many ways the occupation of Alcatraz laid the groundwork for the indigenous activism. We're seeing today with movements like the Dakota access pipeline standing rock protest. For more on this I spoke to Ken. Blanchet and associate associate professor of History and native American studies at the University of Nebraska Omaha and also really embraced noise cat. Journalists and activists who recently led an indigenous canoe journey around Alcatraz. Okay transitioned to commemorate the anniversary of the occupation. And I started by asking can't how the Alcatraz occupation fit into the broader picture of civil rights in the nineteen sixties axes. There was a lot of communication between these movements. There were supporting one another and the recreating a kind of drive to create new kinds of ideas of unity. Unity within this country but also to create a political base that can move things legislatively as well and make positive change. And that's something really critical that I it showcase to my I students when they start to learn this they start to realize you know those students that took over Alcatraz were not too much different than us. Other words students can still make change in this country country and I think there's kind of an uplift to that in a positive direction for all students to be able to kind of learn from Alcatraz Jillian when we think about indigenous indigenous activism and the Red Power Movement after the Alcatraz occupation. Where did it go from there? So after Alcatraz there was a period of about five five years of native activism most notably with the American Indian movement which did not lead the Alcatraz occupation but got involved towards the end and then led things is like the trail of broken treaties across the United States and the occupation of wounded knee in nineteen seventy three and so there was a real flourishing rushing of native activism and a real cultural renaissance that sort of emerged out of this period that began with the Alcatraz occupation. What is the State of native activism and indigenous activism? Today we still struggle with a basic problem of visibility. You know native. The people have been raised in marginalized in American society. Alcatraz was in many ways sort of the Montgomery bus boycott of the native native rights movement in this country and even in places like Oakland and Berkeley you know some of the most progressive liberal places in the country. Kids grow up not knowing that that's is part of their history that when they look out on the ban look at Alcatraz Island. There was this touchstone moment in the history of indigenous peoples and of this entire country. And it happened right here now Julianne. Obviously a lot has changed since nineteen sixty-nine and I'm wondering how Social Media and more broadly the internet or shaping this new era of indigenous activism I think that the the power of media generally and then social media specifically is that it can provide that access that representation and when you have fewer viewer gatekeepers fewer traditional media gatekeepers. I think that the barriers to entry for groups like native people who you know you'd be hard pressed to find a native American in the newsroom of the New York Times The Washington Post or any of the cable networks or in Hollywood But you can find us online very are. He's only a few go to the right corner of the Internet and I think that I see a lot of young people people younger than I am even using platforms to express their are their political views to take their culture into new digital directions. There are now many native folks who are intervening in our cultural landscape and digital media. Social Media has provided them a tool provided us a tool to do that work and can't Just to sort of round this out here. I mean mean we mentioned the Dakota Access pipeline a couple times but here on the takeaway. We've covered many issues that affect the indigenous community here in the United States including the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls Healthcare disparities and an environmental justice just to name a few. Have those issues been the same same as they were. Fifty years ago are there new issues emerging For this community when it comes to civil rights and social justice that we should be paying attention to or have any of these improved in America. We have a long way to go for equality for indigenous peoples. The issue of oppression has never been abated of the issue of colonization has never never been abated. These are issues that are alive and in strong and well within pockets of America and their issues that we as communities and nations have to the face kind of the reason why when we pull back from this and we look at One of Richard Oakes most famous quotes which was tries is not an island. It's an idea. It becomes a very powerful driven force within the movement of Activism in Indian country as to take direct action. But do that. In a non-violent way think indigenous in those solutions and in the course of that is to create a new wave of of activism that can transform our rights. And you gotTA scratch your your head a bit and like you said wonder why they're such an epidemic with murdered a missing indigenous women. Why do we have Monica in Hawaii? What do we have standing rock? Why are we still going going over these issues where we have to educate greater public about treaty rights and some of that does have to do with our educational system has to do with curriculum but also has to do with larger systems of colonization? And and unless we started attacking this communities together and addressing it we won't see significant change for some time. I think that's the critical issue here. So I mean I think think one more element of this that has certainly changed in the last fifty years. Is that climate. Change has emerged as an issue. That was only really a theory. And in some small scientific circles in nineteen sixty nine and one of the fascinating things I would say about the movement you know for climate justice right now. Is that so often fin indigenous communities Like standing rock are on the front lines of that movement are playing outside his role really in calling attention to new environmental injustice. Julian brave noise cat is a journalist and activist Kent blance. It is an associate professor of history and native American Studies at the university. Eh BRASSICA Omaha. Thanks so much for this conversation. Prince firmness thanks for having us. And that's our show so for today and we'll still be on air tomorrow during the holiday so be sure to tune in.

"Bloomberg which is his operation you know as an extension of his campaign and in this case yes it is. These people are joining his campaign. They're they're there to promote Bloomberg's candidacy Dan. What are some of the fears of having a candidate running for president like Bloomberg? WHO also owns a multinational media organization initiation to to Paul's point which is not? Just you know a printed magazine. I mean this is all this is television. This is Beyond that so what are some of the concerns here. Well it seems like it's a ratcheting up of what we've seen in recent years to some extent because although candidate trump did not have a his own news organization behind him Nevertheless he was essentially a creation of the media through his participation participation in the His the apprentice all those years and And and this seems to be really the next step now in terms terms of covering national politics of Bloomberg News is really a niche player. And the idea that they could make or break any candidate is is fairly unlikely. But indeed. What happens if we go down the line and Jeff Bezos Paul Paul's ultimate intimate boss decides to run for President as Paul correctly. Points out. Bazo says been Very good about how leading his Leading The Washington Post cover His interests without fear or favor. But you could see that If he ran for president it might be a very different Sort of situation May bazo swift. Give the same edict and say you can cover me any way you want but I don't know whether the public would believe that and Unfortunately they would be able to point to this Bloomberg situation as a precedent. Paul doesn't doesn't Mike Bloomberg really ultimately I mean he owns the company. It's his it's his brainchild doesn't have the right to say. Look you know. These are my rules. My company my organization Tation You know to play by the rules or or you can walk short. He certainly does. Every owner does and every owner imposes some rules on its newsroom mm-hmm but in this case it it creates perception and his readers. His viewers his listeners of Bloomberg News are going to be asking the question. Am I getting the straight goods from them. Can I trust them as a news organization and I I WANNA take exception to something that Dan just said they. They are niche player. They are strong in financial news. They terminals go into every stock trading and financial firm in America and around world But what we don't know in this case is what won't be reported because of these policies that they've imposed we don't know what stories stories of Bloomberg reporter might uncover and not report because they now have a practice of Stopping themselves from reporting certain things about the candidates.

"Michael Bloomberg is running for president putting his media organization in a bind. Bloomberg news is a very good news organization at this just handcuffs them from Doing what reporters have to do to cover a national political campaign. I'm Tansy Nevada and today on the takeaway for November twenty seventh a look at the ethical questions Sion's raised by Bloomberg's entrance into the race also on the podcast. Native chefs are reshaping Thanksgiving by spotlighting indigenous. Food I've heard people on my podcast. Describe grab it as like an act of resistance act of spirituality and really taking part in your culture and your religion plus fifty years ago. Native native American activists occupied Alcatraz Island will explore the legacy of that act of resistance. Alcatraz was in many ways sort of the Montgomery bus boycott of the native rights movement in in this country. But we start with Michael Bloomberg's presidential conundrum. Let's get going on Sunday. Seventy seven year old former New York mayor and billionaire Michael Bloomberg announced that he he was running for president. If president trump wins another term in office we may never recover from the damage that he can do. The stakes could not the higher. We must win this election and we must begin rebuilding America by investing here at home and restoring our nation's nations credibility and moral leadership abroad Bloomberg is already showing what a candidate with an estimated fifty four billion dollar net worth can do in this week alone Bloomberg will spend thirty one million dollars on television ads. White Bloom down for president. Jobs Creator leader problem-solver MM solver but what since Bloomberg's campaign apart from those run by fellow billionaires Tom Steyer and Donald trump is that he also happens to be the owner of Bloomberg News which is one of the largest news organizations in the country. The outlet is home to a network of twenty seven hundred journalists analyst within the Bloomberg News Network. The former mayor's year's presidential run has inspired a great deal of tension in a memo sent to staffers earlier this week. Bloomberg's editor in chief. John Michael thwaite wrote the company will quote continue our the tradition of not investigating Mike and his family and foundation and we will extend the same policy to his rivals in the Democratic primaries. Here's Bloomberg in two thousand eighteen eighteen speaking with Radio Iowa about how Bloomberg News might cover his campaign. We've always had a policy of we. Don't cover ourselves. I happen to believe in my heart-to-heart WTA hearts you know you can't be independent and nobody's going to believe that you're independent and quite honestly. I don't want what the report is. I'm paying too bad story about. They don't want him to be independent. So you have to going to have to do something. But Independence is at the core of journalism and whether Bloomberg's editorial staff is making the right call in its twenty twenty coverage is where we begin today here discuss what Mike Bloomberg's run means for his media company. Bloomberg News Are Paul Farhi staff writer and reporter for The Washington Post. I and Dan Kennedy Associate Professor of journalism at Northeastern University and a media critic contributor at W. G. B. H. in Boston Paul Dan Welcome to the show. Hi tenzin thank Hugh Paul Bloomberg Editor in Chief John. Michael Thwaite made a decision not to continue to not to investigate Michael Bloomberg which is a continuation of past policy? will this hurt the company's ability to effectively and thoroughly covered the presidential race because they're only covering president trump. I think it's hard to make the the argument that this is the full and complete coverage of the campaign A Bloomberg News is a very good news organization at this just handcuffs offs them from doing what reporters have to do to cover a national political campaign it. It has perplexed to to use a nice nice word the journalists over at Bloomberg They don't know exactly where this leaves them. And I'd have to say that any news organization facing this would would. The journalists would have a big problem with it Dan Nichols Wade said that Bloomberg becomes the nominee. The Bloomberg News outlet would have to reassess now quoting here here how to cover him. What do you think that reassessment could look like? And why not reassess right. Now when he's a candidate well reassessing right now would be a very good move. ooh What I hope and I have no evidence for this but I think it would be a fairly? Decent outcome is that a Bloomberg himself is kind of dipping his toe in the water of a presidential campaign. At this point. It's very much a long shot But if he really starts to gain traction and Seems to be on his way to Being a serious contender for the nomination. my hope hope is that he would reassess and perhaps put Bloomberg News in a blind trust or maybe even sell it as quickly as he can In order to end this really Difficult conflict of interest. The Union at Bloomberg News released a statement on twitter on Monday. They say that they were quote. Extremely alarmed by management decision might management's decision to what they're calling silence journalists Paul you work for The Washington Post host which is owned by Jeff bezos and who owns Amazon and in the Washington Post continues to report on Amazon I've worked for the New York Times that had to report on itself and everything from earnings reports to deeper issues. Here I mean is this really a silencing of journalists I mean are there are other organizations. That are doing that. Have this sort of line in the sand will let me tell you about how the Washington Post covers. Jeff Bezos and the answer is aggressively with really no holds barred. We are not ordered not to write certain things about him. We can write pretty much what we want. And when we have any discussion of Amazon Zahn we disclosed that in Bloomberg case They have always had this weird policy of not Reporting on their owners wellesz else his personality his personal life is family stories. And they're continuing that more importantly there Extending as they as Nichols wait. Wait said in his memo. They're extending that to other Democratic candidates. So what you have now is. We're not going to cover those aspects of Bloomberg. Were not gonNA cover those those aspects of his rivals for the Democratic nomination at the same time they are going to continue investigating those aspects of president then trump. So you have this very unlevel playing field now. No Democrats. No No Enterprise stories about Democrats including Bloomberg but will continue to look into the president. It just looks on fair and it's Bloomberg and and Donald Trump Bloomberg has clearly Gun for Donald Trump in in his Statements he this is why he's running It just presents a political reporters. Dan and I'm curious your thoughts here. What what position this puts the political reporters in To Paul's point who won't be able to report on any of these Democratic candidates. And what what do you end up doing with those folks I I think that You try to keep them from Resigning and taking jobs at the New York Times and the Washington Post It's an incredibly difficult difficult situation. It's completely untenable And what happens. If Bloomberg does somehow managed to win the nomination At that point does a Bloomberg News. Say Oh and by the way we're not GONNA do any investigative pieces about President trump. Either because since. We're not GONNA do that about help. Bloomberg we don't WanNa do it about his rival This is one of the Weirder and more disturbing things. I've heard a about a news organization sation doing in quite some time. Paul we've also learned that several members of Bloomberg's editorial staff are temporarily leaving their positions to work on Bloomberg's campaign. Is this within the regular scope of an editorial staff members job and just to be clear. These are not news reporters who are out working beats but these are the folks who work On opinion and an editorial content but even with that I mean. has there ever been a precedent for this ball. No there's no precedent for this. The closest I could think of was Steve Forbes who was the editor in basically the owner of Forbes magazine back in nineteen eighteen ninety six when he ran for president for Republican nomination at least and but Bloomberg News is not Forbes Magazine McCain Forbes magazine is came out every two weeks it was a magazine Bloomberg has TV. As radioed has non-life presents a huge news organization. Shen and many many readers. The editorial side thing is really weird You know it's one thing to close down any kind of editorials feels about the campaign. Any unsigned editorials. They are stopping that completely. But now you have seven members of the editorial board including the the top two editors joining his campaign that presents. Its own kind of suspicious. Cloud of you know journalistic malpractice L. Practice or at least suspicion Around.

"Is a Bloomberg news technology reporter, he's in our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios in Washington DC for more on this story now and Ben looks like Facebook in particular is playing a lot of defense. Yeah. I think that's basically, right. You know, we've talked about how they have these extensive lobbying operations all the technology companies here in DC, but kind of looking at that recent announcement from Facebook that they're going to combine Instagram and what's app, you could look at it through the Washington lens as a defense against these calls to break it up because if you're putting all the data and all the streams together. Well, it's going to be that much harder to pull them apart. Let's talk a little bit about its plant integrate those messaging products, how do they feel like that's going to? I mean, it seems like it would give them more impetus to be broken up. It sounds more. Like they've cornered the market on that. If they do blend them all it seems like keeping them separate would actually help their case. Right. So this cuts a little bit both ways. What's what's sort of interesting? Here is that you have a lot of critics of these mergers of the privacy position of these companies saying, well, this is what we were screaming about the whole time that they said that they were going to combine these data. But I think in practical terms, if you're going to negotiate a breaking up a company, you have to say where those cracks in the company are going to be in who's going to go into which spun off company, and it just makes it that much harder. Now, it's not clear that this is kind of a high wire act. I think it's not clear that the defense will work. But it does seem as if that's something that they are looking into even as they also walk this line on well, they say it's more privacy protective. But really combines the data streams and tells them more about their individual users. So that they can advertise to them. Okay. So we know about the break-up ideas that are being posed by Elizabeth Warren and others, but what are the other regulatory and legislative threats to Facebook and the other social media companies. Oh, they just run the gamut. And I think what's really important to note about this moment is that it's not just on the left. It's not just Elizabeth Warren saying breaking them up. It's on the right to everybody is just fed up. That's the headline of our story. And that's something. Thing that I hear over and over and over and one of the big things that conservatives talk about is anti conservative bias, we've talked about how sort of saying that these companies have to have a particular political point of view, you get into some some first amendment issues. And so it's not clear that they can do anything. But there is that that liability protection that the that the companies house because their platforms because they're not the one actually writing the content, and so they could go after that. Antitrust you've privacy of the FTC, you have state attorneys general it just goes on and on and on right? Because the when Senator Warren actually tweeted about breaking up Facebook. She got re tweeted by Ted Cruz, and I don't know what universe that would ever happen on any other subject nineteen. Well, but where did they go wrong? The big tech companies. Didn't they used to be the darlings? They were absolutely the darling. You're an American success story. They brought innovation. They brought the world together. They were American companies. They were social democratic Raquel democratic campaign contributions. Absolutely democratic campaign contributions everybody everybody loved them. And I think what increasingly we're seeing is the downside in our everyday lives. Just to take something from last week that horrific massacre in New Zealand livestream across Facebook. They couldn't take it down fast enough. And in some ways, that's just the nature of the platform. It's just a little bit too big. And you can say that they don't want to take it down because it's it's profitable. But I think it's hard you. I think it's hard to argue that a terrorist videos. I is profitable. I just I just kind of bad business model. It's a bad. It's a bad business model. But when you're seeing at this scale that level of downsides. It's hard for voters. Not to be upset and it's hard for politicians. Not to see it as an issue. They can win on. So we're going to see a calls to take action against social media's just get louder as we head into twenty twenty. I think that's exactly what we're going to see. I mean, I think it doesn't crack those top three on the politics of sort of, you know, those those kitchen table issues, you know, how how far does my money go. Do I have a good job? And do I have healthcare those kinds of things I think they're still going to really determine the elections. But it does seem like this is kind of a combination political policy cultural issue that is really gaining relevance. And the companies just cannot stop making it more relevant stepping in it in ways that voters just throw up their hands and go what are we gonna do about these guys in the if you consider that the Republican congressman from California, Devin Nunes suit, Twitter, he can't be the only one who's ever come up with that idea, nor will he be the last you see a wave of lawsuits, I had is this a situation where the technology has outpaced. What is in law? I don't think. So I think there are a lot of problems with that lawsuit. Some of that platform, immunity stuff is also first amendment stuff. He's sort of alleging a conspiracy. But he saying well you have to let this lawsuit go forward. So I can prove this conspiracy. It's very weird venue. I'm not sure what he's doing in Virginia. So there's a lot of I think issues with that suit. And if it gets tossed out, I'm not sure other people are going to are going to go down there. When things like libel law, these things exist, and I think I think they can apply on the internet. But when you talk about that platform, immunity, I think a lot of people are discussing it. And if you look at something like, maybe a drug ads online, a lot of talk around Washington that this is a big vulnerability in coming months. It could be a place where they as you say, we're lawmakers say the policy just just just didn't keep Ben, thanks. That's Bloomberg news technology reporter, Ben Brody. You're listening to Bloomberg politics policy and power on Bloomberg radio. I'm Peter Barnes with Amy Morris. Amy, you might think that the more transparency there isn't campaign finance disclosures. The better now earlier this month, the house passed HR one which reforms the campaign finance system among other things. House speaker Nancy Pelosi, it ends the dominance a big dark special interest money in politics, and it empowers small donors and the. Grassroots. Now. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell has already said that Bill is not getting any floor time. And the Senate says too much campaign. Finance disclosure would risk retribution against conservative donors. Bloomberg government senior editor for money and politics, Ken Doyle has been following this. He joins us now in our Bloomberg ninety nine one studios here in Washington DC, one of the things he said Ken was that it would risk retribution against conservative donors damp and public discussion and be too expensive. Can you bring us up to speed on? Why McConnell is arguing against that level of transparency? Yeah. I mean, he's he doesn't he doesn't want transparency for at least some of these groups that are known by their critics start money groups, which have been very influential in elections and have helped McConnell and a number of other. Candidates win election. The there is he talks about retribution which sounds like something is something physical is going to happen to these people. I think that the more. What's closer to the truth? Is that a lot of these people don't wouldn't like negative publicity? We're talking about companies that are widely known wealthy individuals that are widely known and some of them would prefer to just remain anonymous just because you know, they don't want the attention, especially corporate America, doesn't like to get involved in controversial political topics. And so what would happen is if there was more transparency some of the money, maybe a lot of the money wouldn't be there. They just you know, they would be much harder for to raise money. And so I think that that's more. What what the issue is about the juxtaposition here. The comparison for me is what's going on with this legislation which is has passed the house, but it's going to be held up in the Senate, according to McConnell, and so we're not going to see a legislative change. But we have a number of court cases that have been making their way through the system, including one that is now gotten to the court. Of appeals here in Washington and McConnell filed a friend of the court brief in this case, which showed show that this is potentially a very significant case, and we could have a court ruling that could have a much larger impact sooner than any of the legislation. That's getting more attention. And that's why he's focusing on that that making this argument about retribution. Well, the McConnell have maybe a point here. I am thinking of the controversy of few years back about the IRS auditing, right? Certain conservative groups remember that. Yeah. And there there is a legitimate. I mean, the supreme court actually recognized in the Buckley case, which is his back to the seventies was the big the big supreme court case on campaign, finance the supreme court said that it is possible that you could have people that would be physically threatened. If it became known who, you know, who they were supporting politically and the the case. The example that the supreme court pointed to and and that was followed up on later was the Socialist Workers Party a party that supported, you know, very radical ideas and didn't want their supporters. No because they said they would lose their jobs. They could be physically threaten. There are other cases that go back to the sixties with the NWEA CPI where the courts have said, the, you know, there are some groups that would their supporters will be so threatened. That we really ought to protect you know, who they are. The question is whether billionaires and big companies supporting politicians today are really in the same position as those supporters of the N double ACP in the desegregation struggles of the sixties. And I think you'd have a lot of people that would say some of these wealthy people that are putting up money to influence our politics. They really ought to be known and the consequences to them are not as great as they as they would make them out to be like going on their Bloomberg government senior editor for money and politics, Ken, Doyle, always thanks so much.

"Vince, Bloomberg news global, macro strategist little funky town. I think we might have a little bit of a funky town here today. You know, you mentioned Charlie Pellett probably an apology because there are many times that I shout. His name in vain is I'm going to the subway and I hear Mina closed doors, Charlie doors. Well, we got lots going on US China trade we do expect to hear from the president. And of course, our big stock and corporate business story Kraft Heinz shares plummeting the most on record big big right down. So we'll kick things off with that just a moment. But let's get to the voice of funky town. Charlie Pellett, right stand. Clear the running bowl, please. We've got the Dow the s&p NASDAQ stocks surging on this Friday on track for another winning week four in a row right now, we've got stocks rising along with treasuries as investors await results from top level trade talks between the US and China the dollar falling but the s&p up fourteen now of five tenths percent. The Dow off the highs of the day off one fifty five up six tenths NASDAQ up fifty five that's a gain of eight tenths of one percent. Tenure of twelve thirty seconds yield two point six four percent. We've got gold up five tenths now thirteen thirty sand. West Texas intermediate crude oil up five tenths of one percent Fifty-seven twenty-six a barrel. I'm Charlie pelletan. That is a Bloomberg business flash. Yes. Indeed. Charlie pellett. Thank you so much. I'm Carol Massar offense. Cigna rela in for Jason Kelly. On this Friday, as I just said, I forgot my password. So I'm having trouble. This is what happens when you change it, and I make it complicated. Vincent Morello, though. We did hear Charlie talking about rally underway next rally, and one of the things that striking today is that we're seeing a rally in treasuries and stocks at the same time and just makes me feel one's going to happen. Is going the wrong way. And I'm going to let Gina Martin Adams tell me which way is going because she's much better equities than I am going to say, we we usually talk about the show of it. But let's get right to the markets because we do have gene in the house with us a Gina Martin Adams is here along with our Dave Wilson. Of course, Gina is our Bloomberg intelligence chief equity strategist, and we've got our Bloomberg stocks editor Dave Wilson as Gina. What's going on here? I've been reading your research because you've been talking about earnings kind of here to hitting a trough. Yeah. That may be a good sign. Well, I think that that's a lot of the reason the explanation for why stocks have rally this year and nobody's talking about it typically years in which earnings trough are great years for stocks because stocks are forward looking right. Peak as we learned again last year years in which earnings peak are not such good years for socks. So I do think that as we've gone through earning season analysts have just pummeled expectations for next quarter earnings growth, that's creating a natural trough. We probably need to see some confidence develop that that is indeed the trough it's not gonna persist throughout the year before we get a lot of optimism evident in the equity market. But I do think that just finding a trough can be an under appreciated aspect of what's driving prices. Where does that optimism come from? Is it come from trade to we see it from president Xi? President Trump supposedly meeting now potentially in mar-a-lago in in March. It seems to me it has to come from external sources right trade is part of that story because the weakest part of the earning stream by far the multinational companies those with dollar exposure, those that have exposure to China those that have exposure to Europe are under performing the rest they've been responsible for the the bulk of the dragged down in revenue expectations. So that would imply that in order to get confident about the outlook. We probably need to see a little bit of confidence in the non domestic outlook form, and that comes from anything from trade to just getting past Brexit to possibly an ECB ease or something to stimulate better growth. And in Europe. I think it's got to come non-domestic speaking about external growth, you mentioned this like I believe last week that the stocks in Europe. Relative value. I believe to the are overvalued versus stocks in order to stop stocks that have a relationship with China are undervalued hasn't. That's still the case. And that's the way the money's to be made. Maybe yes, it's still an incredible discount relative to their ten year averages. Anyway, for the stocks with the most exposure to China. Less of a discount or less of a premium now for stocks with exposure to Europe, but still somewhat a premium. So that's I would say that that is. And unique divergence has gone on. The earning stream is investors are still bidding up the value of companies that do have a bit of exposure to Europe. They have completely given up on the China story. It may be wide trade seems to be such a sensitive issue. It seems to be that the companies that are most exposed to trade or starting to perform quite a bit better. And they are also incredibly discounted. And I have to say I'm blown away by how the sentiment goes from kind of positive too as we saw in December everything falling off a cliff, and I feel like everybody starting to talk recession and earnings coming down. And then we're kind of making our way back, right? And it happens very much in extreme ways. Right now, it does which if you look historically. It when you have corrections like that, the the bounceback is always extreme. I looked back at the twenty eleven correction of twenty percent and the twenty fifteen twenty sixteen correction of more than fifteen percent in the S and P five hundred and in both of those instances, you went over just a period of weeks from less than two percent of names on the s&p five hundred trading above their fifty day moving average to ninety five which is and that's the scenario that we're in right now, we're getting really close to that ninety five number which makes me think the market probably gets a little exhausted in the near term. Maybe we see a little bit of sideways consolidation for the recent games. But it's quite normal. Charter today's talk about the ninety percent figure that it was getting people's attention. But let's talk about what's ahead for earnings because the idea of the trough is there if you look at the numbers first quarter looking like the worst based on what analysts are predicting for companies and the S and P five hundred and you do see things go up as the year goes on with the fourth quarter being real resumption of growth. But there are two things that you can also say the kind of run counter one is that the estimates are still coming down for this year. First quarter, you now looking at close to a three percent drop in s and p five hundred earnings, and the second thing is if you work at least in my experience, there's a horrible optimism that gets baked in the fourth quarter figures, and they don't always pan out the way the analysts are in -ticipant eating. So how much of a truck there might be this year is still up in the air. Air. I can't also I have a feeling that like CEO's right now are taking advantage of the opportunity to save. If they're worried about things, let's just throw it out there right now. Right. And let's over performer outperform later on. But I do feel like people are kind of piling it on the old kitchen sink approach when it comes to their results may very well be the case. Yeah. Why not take advantage, right? The sentiment is things are terrible cell. Okay. Yeah. Things really are terrible. That way we lowered expectations lower the bar. Give ourselves a little wiggle room. Gino, you said you looked at cycles, and I do feel like and we had a question come up. I did something for business. We kind of a a webcast, and we were talking about the housing market specifically, but they did talk about maybe our cycles have changed since the financial crisis for different reasons. I don't know whether there's more transparency in the markets, but our cycles have they changed. So I take issue with the word cycle. Okay, instances, right. Which is why we get earning cycles. All we're looking at her peak to trough earnings changes and trough Topeka earnings changes. And that defines the cycle for us. Right. An economic cycle is very different than a market cycle market cycles are tend to be many market cycles within one big economic cycle. So I think we have to define what is a cycle. If we're talking about the economic cycle because we're talking about the housing market. You know, I think what makes an economic bust which everyone's been looking for is usually an economic boom in that instance, we have had no boom. So therefore when is the bus going to occur is a big question Mark, and that is the characteristic that defines this cycle differently than other cycles. You always have an excess Bill at the end of a cycle that you need to correct from. And that's what a recession is. Right. So we're all on guard for whereas the excess developing many people have pointed to the financial markets as the area of excess yet would the economy seems to be remarkably stable, so that I think proves the case that the financial markets in the economy are not the same thing. Right. They run on different cycles, they run on different time periods, and they may coincide occasionally, but not all the time.
