This included Amazon's sale commission, as well as optional logistic servers and advertising on Amazon itself.

But 2022 saw Amazon's lowest ever sales growth. The information sources say that TikTok may soon let creators charge fans $1 or more to view their videos.

Thank you so much for that update Charlie pellet. It's three 48 on Wall Street. The following is an editorial from Bloomberg opinion. In the years since the January 6th attack on the U.S. capitol, the government has responded better than might have been expected. Law enforcement agencies have charged at least 700 participants. Congressional investigators have interviewed hundreds of witnesses. In federal courts have resisted efforts by former president Donald Trump to deny Congress access to documents and testimony. Such progress shows the resilience of America's democratic institutions. It also underscores the need for the House select committee investigating the attack to quickly complete its inquiry. Its chair representative Benny Thompson has said the panel only plans to release interim findings by the summer. That risks extending the probe deep into 2022. The committee should instead complete its work and issue an unredacted public report well ahead of the November midterm elections. The rest will be up to the voters. This editorial was written by the Bloomberg opinion editorial board. I'm David shipley, for more Bloomberg opinion, please go to Bloomberg dot com slash opinion or OPI and go on the Bloomberg terminal. These has been Bloomberg opinion. Yeah, but you let me drive. Oh, no. No, no, no. This is not a toilet. Honey, please. Out of the driving drive old. Excuse me, I want to drive. It's a good question for drivers. This is the drive to the clothes. On Bloomberg radio. All right, just about ten minutes left in today's trading session and it's been an interesting week already here in 2022. Still got another day to go. We've got that monthly jobs report. Let's get to it. The drive to the close, Alan zafran founding partner in co CEO at IQ capital with us. Once again on the phone from Foster City, California. First of all, Alan, happy new year from Tim and me. How are you? I am doing great, Carol. Happy new year to you, and I can tell you, thankfully, the build isn't shaking like it was last time. Oh yeah, that was great. Yeah, that's small earthquake last time. You're on the phone with us. Although the markets are shaking. So that's what's shaking right now. So doing great, actually knows the sound terrible. Nice to see a little turbulence and weakness, which if you happen to have a constructive longer term view, this is the time to step in and increase our considerate, maintaining that increasing your equity exposure. So you get squeaked by this, but buying opportunities. This is the time though. I mean, we're only down. We're only down 3% on the NASDAQ year to date. Are you going to expect more buying opportunities in the coming weeks and coming months? You never know for sure and of course in the stock pickers market as well. Some of these stocks, particularly those stocks that aren't earning anything anytime soon are interest rate sensitive or down far more than 3%. Of course. If I were a long-term investor, I would be beginning to dollar cost average in being a buyer here. If I held stock exposure already, I would not be in a panic. I would be looking for a venture the way to increase my exposure, particularly to U.S. equities and particularly to growth oriented U.S. centric businesses because once we get through the stimulus of the pandemic and our economic growth decelerates, we are going to get back to the world that looked like before 2019 and 20, which was a slow grinding economy, which was why these large cap tech companies that grew despite low economic global growth still did quite well. So that is selectively where you still want to be looking. It's interesting that you say that, Alan, because certainly it's a big part of the conversation has been what the $1 trillion tech route that we've seen in so many names here in this first week of the new year. And so names that have been driving, especially those big tech names. You know who they are. This is an opportunity to maybe get in at a lower valuation. I think so. Again, nibbling of that everyone's going to say, oh, no, that's balanced from Silicon Valley talking his book. But no. What that is. Well, where have you added? Where have you or where did you tell people to add? I'd say in the last 24 hours. People were saying, don't panic. We think this year, U.S. equities will once again do better than non U.S. equities, both emerging market and international non U.S. developed markets. Because of better growth. Because of better growth? Yes. In fact, you're going to get me to punchline a different way. We think Europe is going to be very weak economically. It could even go into a recession. And China is struggling to grow economically. That actually will be forces to keep long-term interest rates down. I think this rise we're seeing in yields is two a degree a head fake. I'll be surprised if at the end of the year the ten year is as high as it is today at one and three quarters percent. Really? Therefore, therefore, I am willing to buy large growth stocks. Now, I still would rather be in companies that really generate earnings. I hate to say this to many companies that have recently gone public because they are far more sensitive to interest rates in its debt outlook is wrong. They will get hurt further. But your safe plague isn't you're not buying reveal men. You're not buying rivian. No. No, that was not what I would recommend because obviously the earnings aren't good. Trying to derive a valuation model when a company doesn't have earnings is incredibly complicated. And again, evaluation is based on a discounted cash flow model and the higher the interest rate, the less the value of the dollars buys a ten years from now. Therefore, the company isn't worth as much in my model. And that's why I sell that stock. If I'm buying the large cap quality names, they're generating earnings that can figure out on multiple updates. Because I know we're going to have you back on later this year several times before the end of the year. Give me that where you think that the yield on the ten year is going to be by the end of the year? I think it's going to be around one and a half percent. There's two different things going on with interest rates. First of all, we have all those long-term secular things we've had slow growth. We have aging populations in the developed countries, which is your Japan and the U.S.. You have globalization which is still around. We have tremendous technological progress pushing down prices. Those are the secular courses. On top of that, growth is going to decelerate as we go through the year. And most importantly, there is a tremendous correlation between what happens with the German bond market in the U.S. bond market. It's a global bond market and when Japan, Japanese ten year bonds, you'll be nothing and Sherman bonds are yielding negative. People roll into the US Treasury market. So I am not fearful that we're in a wage spiral inflation that's going to decimate the

"Bloomberg business flash. Thank you so much for that update, Charlie pellet. It's three 48 on Wall Street. The following is an editorial from Bloomberg opinion. This editorial was written by the Bloomberg editorial board, with just a few weeks left the summer of 2022, has already breached some alarming milestones in the northern hemisphere. Globally, June and July of this year have ranked among the warmest months ever recorded. Unfortunately, such trends are likely to worsen due to climate change. So how can the world prepare for the hotter summers ahead? The most important step is to keep up the fight against global warming, including by slashing emissions and boosting investment in green energy and related technologies. Measures to aid the poor should also be a priority. Police affluent tend to suffer the most from extreme heat. One can only hope that this summer's blistering heat will only underscore the urgency to act. The editorial was written by the Bloomberg editorial board for more Bloomberg opinion. Please go to Bloomberg dot com slash opinion or op. IN go on the Bloomberg terminal. This has been Bloomberg opinion. Adrenaline. Yeah, but you let me drive. Oh, no. No, no, no. Honey, please. I'll do the driving drive on. Excuse me, I want to try it. It's a good question for the tribes. This is the drive to the clubs. On Bloomberg radio. All right, we have about ten and a half minutes left in today's trading session and we've been bouncing around in today's trade. Right now, just turning off our highs of the day. We're in the green and you heard from Charlie palette on all of those major averages, but just up a tad Tim. Well, we're very pleased with to have with us this afternoon, Alan zafar and his partner. We're a little wacky. Yeah, we're a little wacky to Alan, but that's okay. I mean, Alan, don't forget that Alan zafran, one time when he was on air with us. There was an earthquake in California. That's right. Oh my God, good memory. Allen, it's good to have you with us. How are you? I'm doing great. It looks like the markets are shaking too, but straight up recently, right? Yeah. You haven't got some big laughs from the control room there on that one. I like that. Alan Scotty partner and co CEO at IQ capital joins us on the phone from Foster City, California. So it's puzzling to me, Alan. We have fed officials coming out and saying over and over again, day in and day out. We got to raise rates to combat inflation. We're nowhere close to being done with that. In similar phrasing. But yet the market marches higher, what gives? Well, what gives Tim is the fact that technicals are once again ahead of the fundamentals. We see a time and again. So if you believe the stock market with this incredible technical flush upward, we're having the fed is going to get it right. We're going to thread the needle. We're going to avoid a recession. It's what the stock market is signaling or at a minimum, the recession will be so shallow that you won't actually see it earnings recession companies will continue to grow earnings like 8% a year and will mitigate all these concerns and we'll get through this scaring. We'll be back to a more normalized world. That's what the stock market is telling you. Do you buy it? I buy that the likelihood of the fed three threading the needle as much greater than it was a month ago and the reason I buy that is you're finally getting inflation readings that are heading down. You're getting consumer surveys indicating that their belief inflation is heading down as also the case. You're getting confirmation from independent sources conveying that the fed seems to be attacking this problem well. You also get it from the standpoint that it's been an interesting time. It turns out, and in this earnings estimate, overall, earnings expectations heading into the end of the year have only been cut by about 2% heading into this earnings season, the market was pricing in about 15% cuts in earnings expectations. And so what's going on is earnings revisions are far less bad than what everyone believes. Of course, you get target target or you get selected companies and sectors that are disproportionately hit and revised downward. But in aggregate, you're still at a point where you're getting a significant number of companies beating. In fact, it turns out 75% of companies have actually beat estimates and on average by about 4% this quarter. And so that's what's going on. Earnings aren't as bad as people fear. Inflation is starting to come down. You had a remarkably oversold short term. Technical condition and if you do read the chartists and technical analysts that are out there, they'll tell you that the set up right now is for a continuation of this rally. As one example of Bank of America does a survey of the fund manager survey, right? Yeah. There's still reading a zero, which is historically been incredibly bullish. So too many investors caught two bearish and two quick time frame and technical indicators are that this market is likely in the short run to move higher. We've talked a lot about the retracement, right? From peak to trough, 50% retracement. Of that and how that that is a positive indicator for more upside to continue Alan and yet that's a pretty significant retracement. So it does make me wonder, when do we, when do we think that maybe things are getting a bit ahead of itself, especially when you have somebody like Neil kashkari who was

"You very much Appreciate it Yes Given that there are a 100,000 The answer is yes All right A joint press conference between President Biden and German Chancellor Olaf Schultz they were in the east room of The White House And obviously the majority of their press conference dealing with the increased tensions and moves that we have seen by Russian forces along that Ukrainian border was interesting and certainly pertinent to our Bloomberg audience is President Biden says that if Russia indeed invades Ukraine they will no longer be Nordstrom two This is this massive pipeline that really connects Russia to Europe And is really crucial in terms of getting that gas out to Europe So that's a big deal It is I am just going over some headlines here Carol No doubt about Germany's partnership with the U.S. President Biden said no doubt the Germany is a reliable partner The president also said that Biden that Putin excuse me would pay quote heavy price for any invasion and did reiterate that it would be wise for Americans who are a Ukraine to leave Yeah exactly But it did seem that the two of them talking about the unified relationship if you will between the United States and Germany certainly that was questioned by some members of the press community But the president saying as you said no doubt about the Germany partnership with the United States So unified against Russia Hey want to get to a headline now that just crossed the Bloomberg terminal Peter Thiel is planning to leave the board of meta the parent company of Facebook to pursue Trump's political agenda Peter Thiel was a very early backer of Mark Zuckerberg So certainly a big deal that he's leaving the board Yeah that's pretty interesting and it certainly sparks conversations and questions about what is the Trump political agenda going forward in what universe is it in the political world or is it in the media world or a little bit of both All right let's remind everybody that we indeed have seen the markets close on this first trading day of the week It's going to be another week full of economic data including a read on inflation in terms of the closing numbers S&P finishing down 17 points the Dow up just one point and the NASDAQ down about 82 points finishing just off their lows of the session those major equity averages Yeah but for the Dow not moving enough to have any sort of impact on the percentage change It's finishing unchanged for the day Yeah I mean not to think you see everyday Carol No no but I don't know It's interesting to me It's been moving around a little bit but definitely off its best levels of the session So let's get to it with Alan zafran founding partner in co CEO of IE Q capital on the phone from Foster City California Hey Alan nice to have you back Thanks for your patience as we awaited just listening to that press conference from The White House So what are the key things that you are thinking about in terms of this market environment Carol Tim hi Hi Another news filled day Yeah Yeah Markets focus on long-term fundamental and we can all get shaken by short term headlines and geopolitical risks and one off earnings disappointments or price increases move stocks to the upside like in the case of Amazon You just can't get shaken I mean if you want to take a geopolitical lens for a minute because we just heard from President Biden America is still dominating and that gets expressed in the financial markets U.S. markets still trade at 21 times earnings the Euro market trades about 18 times earnings are less as does Japan's market So Russia's trades at single digit So that's telling you something And if you look at a bigger lens the long run technological transformation is going to continue to lead to productivity changes which leads to wealth creation which leads to better outcomes in the long run for owners of companies And that's what stocks constitute But you have to ride all the crazy chaos of tightening fed cycles and geopolitical risks along the way That's the price for the higher potential return Silen have you made any changes in 2022 to your outlook Because we have spoken several times in the last few months and I'm wondering given the choppiness between last time we spoke with you and what we're seeing right now have you changed your strategy at all Good question The answers No But I encourage people to take a much longer term perspective And I think it's different if you're a day trader Right It's very clear that you're in the midst of a transition at least to some extent from a liquidity driven easing cycle to what's not going to be a tightening cycle And it's always going to be choppy but I do believe the market is overly draconian overly hawkish overly tilted towards an out of control spiraling inflation probably which is not going to take place I think there's going to be clear evidence as we head in the second half of this year that the inflationary pressures are dissipating that can give you all kinds of reasons why Even if you want to tell me things like the U.S. employment wage rates going up at 4% of problematic I remember productivity growth is trying to get 2% That's certainly only a 2% core inflation rate And you're going to have what's called the base effect So as we move month over months which will compare year over year inflation on the marginal decelerate supply chains will get unbroken and you will see that the pressures on a lot of these prices will begin to dissipate And all the concerns about as many as 5 6 7 rate hikes this year will prove to be two pessimistic And so that is really what creates the buying opportunity here Right The high quality company But timing is tricky and we talked about timing is tricky certainly for the Federal Reserve There's a lot of pressure on them to do something Many would say that they're already behind the times when it comes to raising rates to rein inflation We're going to get a very hot print on CPI this week but having said that as you say and anybody who's a student of economics understands that we know why the supply chains are so out of whack We understand that And the question is when do they write themselves The expectation is they will go back to normal so there aren't so much pressure price pressures but having said that Alan we're talking about these Amazon stories and these other stories of people companies that are raising wages that are going to be sticky And so you do wonder what impact that might have longer term Well it does tell you that you're going to have in the short run some margin compression you're seeing several companies signal that Right You have to realize that COVID really in a way was another form of a war if you will and in times of war you get temporary inflationary spikes but they end up in the stagflation environment on the back end of that I don't think this is any different I think what's going to happen is on the back end of this you're going to see clearly that you've already seen things like port delays along the West Coast or declining sharply delivery times or accelerating order backlogs or increasing inventories or ability to quickly prices paid indices are starting to drop There's actually signs already That allows you to place your pressures are beginning to dissipate And so the wage pressures will be offset by productivity increases technological advances in on the back end of this company's will readjust And so I think you still have to look at high quality franchises that can pass the price increases or the cost increases of their components in the short run off to their consumers in the long run they're going to benefit when the other price pressure is dissipated Or you.

"Thank you so much Let go on Apple and apple were still waiting for their earnings Amazon is added you know stock definitely lower here in the after hours Let's get more of the results their business back with us Pablo Donald president and chief and analyst at technics research based in Foster City California joining us once again on the phone from there bab How are you I'm good Carol how are you Doing well doing well Let's get to it Amazon investors a little bit disappointed Do you think they should be Well I mean obviously expectations were pretty high and the misses were I think bigger than a lot of people have expected And frankly given how much people have been buying online I think there was this thought of between online sales and of course AWS which has been this machine of growth and income for them that things we continue to be very good Look they were still the only numbers are still super high This is part of the problem where the law of big numbers now Very hard to continue growing when you're as big as you are as they are But obviously things like supply chain issues undoubtedly has probably had an impact And in fact the early comments out of Andy Jesse suggests that part of the reason why the forecast for Q four is a bit low as well It was in fact the additional costs I mean look they've been building up their supply chain Nobody does this better than them because they have such a huge supply chain across so many places And we've seen the company evolve over time in the same way that they build up AWS which was a home built tool for them to then turn into a product They've been building up their logistics business as well to eventually to the point where you can imagine that becoming a separate capability for that But bottom line is when ship starts slowing down they buy planes and they ship things over I mean these are the things that a company of their size does And that's what their A little bit of technical problem there Yeah we're going to work to get Bobo Donal president and chief analyst at analysis research And the metaverse that would not have you went there But shares of Amazon after hours down about 4.3% Yeah I mean the headline is Amazon giving that forecast for holiday sales that fell short of analyst estimates signaling that the pandemic's boost to online shopping continues to fade So yeah that's it Bobbo Donald I think he's back with us Bob please continue in terms of your thoughts on Amazon And I'm not sure where the glitch occurred But I had mentioned you know they were given the issues with things like shipping containers and boats They buy planes and they stick products on planes to get them over Because they've been preparing for this ever since prime day of the summer they prepare for the holidays They hire hundreds of thousands of people They said a million people applied for jobs as part of their career day So they clearly recognize the challenge that they are going to have and that they're going to be cost involved And that's why I think again I know where to cut off by adjacent I think they're going to be spending a lot of money in the near term on people on logistics on flying products over as necessary from various places of manufacturer in order to make sure they can deliver the things that people are going to be expecting from them in Q four Bob let's think about what Amazon has done over the course of its relatively short history It's been able to go into spend mode and when it's in spend mode the profits certainly take a hit but those but that tends to pay out for investors a few quarters later a few years later Yeah I mean whenever that for years and years and years in fact exactly to your point to him that they were not making any money at all despite huge amounts of income because in fact they were spending on the infrastructure they felt was going to be necessary in order to build the warehouses and the distribution systems and everything else as well as of course for the cloud side investing all the computing hardware they needed to run AWS And so you're absolutely right I mean there's a long history of doing this at the company They see this as another time when they need to invest significantly more Both for the retail and online operation as well as clearly for AWS And then as they start to build up some of their other businesses advertising which is obviously there's much lower costs associated with that So that's easier But a lot of the businesses they're in are very resource dependent and resource heavy in terms of costs And let's not forget I'm looking at our right through on this The last line of the story Amazon Web Services AWS S the cloud computing unit that brings in most of Amazon's profit posted sales of 16.1 billion up 39% It's such an important thing to be in mind If you think about Amazon's revenue it does not come from AWS the revenue but the profit absolutely does Way higher margin So again they invested for years in AWS before they were able to get to that point But yeah that's been done and they're continuing to do it That market to be fair is getting much more competitive between Microsoft and Google and IBM and other folks getting into the cloud business But Amazon still clearly the leader and that market thankfully for all of the parties involved it continues to grow Right exactly And as our Erica clock that we talked from the dynamic brand funds he said he'd be buying on the weakness and we do see Amazon down 4.4% after hours 30 seconds left for you bob metaverse meta Facebook What's your takeaway Well you can't help but think that this is meant to be a distraction from all the issues that Facebook has had And I think it's going to be confusing to a lot of people I mean look just as Google renaming the parent Alphabet really at the end of the day didn't have much of an impact That's probably what we'll see with meta But initially it's going to be confusing because they're so focused and say oh no we're metaverse first When the vast majority of the world is not.

It looks like services did Okay, but really the big stuff was Goodall, iPhones and Max. I mean, you know Those are the things that are really crushing it for him. And you know, from a regional perspective again, obviously, just going through this live here, But the China numbers are also looking really good almost double from a year ago, so that's That's a clear sign of the fact that the iPhone 12 having five G. That's what was critical for China because five the networks are very widely available than China and without a five D phone, Apple was at a real disadvantage. So the iPhone 12 selling through China and clearly in big numbers, that's gotta be a big portion. The reason there and then Max the M one that's apples custom ship that they created. Based on arm architectures. They've done in this for the iPhone. But they introduce that last fall for the Mac. And clearly they had a lot of success with that. Of course, just last week we saw them introduce. I am one based. I'm Max and even brought the M one to the iPad.

Here's a horizon Just down a hair down about 1/10 of 1% Any thoughts on Amazon of arise in there, Bob? Well, you know, the interesting Amazon they've been. They've caught a lot of grief lately. In terms of you know, there weren't place standards and and everything else, but it's another interesting data point just came out today is the Amazon was ranked as the number one place to work by linked in linked into the huge study of Top 50 companies to work at in America and Amazon came out number one and people was also in the top 10 18 T was in the top 10 IBM in Alphabet.

Yeah, not the M V P of this league and actually Is not really even in the top three conversation now. Here's where I'm going. The national media is actually right along with what I'm saying the Bay Area in all of us is going. How on earth look at the metrics. Steph Curry take him off the floor. And the Warriors are a hot mess. Well, hang on second. This is the same argument that we used to rally against. Right number James Harden scoffing at the idea that anybody but him was the M V P Because If you take hardened off the rock, it's just a bunch of dudes. We're like, Yeah, that's great, But your team is not all that wonderful. And, uh and your stats are often empty. Steph Curry's phenomenal If we want to make up a new award. I'm cool with that. Most outstanding player. Um The player who comma If he leaves, comma has his team fall apart. I mean, sure, you can win that award. But whose central tweeted out today N Ba m v P tracker. And while this is not official, it's kind of taking the temperature of the NBA media. One Yokich, too, and beat three LeBron. Four. Greek Freak five Kwai six. Anthony Davis seven. Lillard, eight Durant, nine Gobert Live Hand Paul George, and you're like, Okay, He's not in the top. 10. Luck is probably in the top 10. I don't know about all that. It doesn't matter to me who comes in 8th 9th or 10th. The bottom line is this recent shove Of Steph Curry should be warranting M v p consideration. Look, there's just something that The totally strikes him from the record. 12 and 11. The N V P award. Don't work that way. It shouldn't work that way. By the way, Quick pause Mark with the show can be our candy rfm, San Francisco these sports leader. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for hanging with us tonight. You know SARS a little bit later on this hour. I'll get to the kindle thing here in the second as well, But but because this was brought up, I want to. I want to address it. Like You can't be on a 12 and 11 team and win the M V P Or even really be considered. It doesn't work that way, And it shouldn't work that way. And one of the biggest things that happens in an M V P debate is you have two people who are barking at one another. Whatever Their position is on who the M V P is, But they're actually arguing completely different points because they come from different schools of what the M V. P is. M V P. Debates are born out of a lack of understanding of what the M V P award is For a lot of people. It is that thing that I mentioned earlier. Take this guy off the team. What do you have left? I don't care. That has nothing to do with anything in my mind. And it shouldn't you know what that tells me? That means you're getting extra M V p votes if your teammates aren't good. Want me that That's not the way it works. I'm not taking any VP. Voting away from Let's say, for instance, LeBron because Anthony Davis is on his team. I'm not doing that's not his fault. It's a good thing, by the way the same way none of us wanted to take N V P votes away from Durant or Curry or whoever when they were all playing together. We didn't want that. So this isn't a vote of who's the best player who has crappy teammates. That's not what this is. By the way, I'm not calling the rest of worries crappy, but you understand what I'm saying. This is not about who's got the best numbers alongside a bunch of players who are not in the national conversation. That's not the name of the award. It always comes down to the word valuable and then we go value toward what So is it value toward your team being relevant? Okay, then maybe that staff or is it value toward your team being a championship contender? That's where I vote. That's where my opinion falls. Like if you're not a top four seed, Sorry you're not in this conversation. You're not here. In my opinion, you are not eligible, and I actually wish they would kind of define it that way.

Let's talk about Amazon because we are all in on it today. Safe to say, 24 hours ago or close to it. We were all shocked. By the news that essentially Jeff Bezos resigning as the CEO of the company, not going away, but you like and you look at some of these, You know big U. S companies some of these big U. S growth stocks. How do you see that news? I don't find it that surprising, um It looks obviously businesses that an incredible job unworldly one of the greatest business transformation we've ever we will ever witness. The timing is bad. Think of it this way. You took a company from nothing to you know a massive amount of value two trillion in value. Do you really want to be the person that tried to get up to four trillion in value? It's just not going to be is rewarding and the other issue For Jeff. You've got a lot of the business interests. He actually has a charity that he's trying to give $10 billion away from climate change. He's running the space business that frankly blue origin that's behind space X He's got an ego just like you do on musk, and you probably want to focus on some other aspect. And lastly, You know, this way? He's still got $200 billion of personal equity in the company. So when he's stepping away, not really, completely stepping away, he's got a team of 26 people backing and that's his estate. He's already been groomed to take over for him so far from being in a shock. It's kind of time for him to step away. Let the other people run the business, and he's gonna have plenty of strategic influence and insight going forward anyway. So it's It's time one number that we've heard. Ah, lot today. Alan has been $1.7 Trillion. It's the market cap of Amazon right now. And I know thanks to note from our producers that you think that future returns for both stocks and bonds, even right now likely constrained by today's elevated valuations. Um, what do you think is overvalued? I think the biggest thing that's overvalued traditional bond Not stocks, however. When you value stocks in the end, what you're doing is you're valuing the future cash flows, which were based on where rates are discount rates. Gamestop excluded from this Yeah, Yeah, I didn't use my surplus check to buy call options on Gamestop, like others. When you start to see interest rates rise, I believe that is the single greatest fundamental threat to the stock market. I don't think you're gonna see a rapid, dramatic and horrible rate rising rates because I think the Federal Reserve Gonna Slowly job bone and manipulate that rate to move up in a more orderly fashion. You'll get it coming up in fits and starts over years, not over months or quarters. Because rates eventually creep up. They compete with stocks or where capital goes, and basically, people pay lower multiples on their earnings on the stocks once rates go higher and higher. Or thought. Think of differently. You're president. Value is worth less when using the higher discount rate, future cash flow, So that's a long winded way of saying when you do the math if you thought you were gonna make 10% in the next decade on stock Maybe you're going to make 7%. It's not zero and it's still better a lot better than bonds, but it's probably lower than the 13% you made in the previous 10 years, which was higher. Been 10% here. So this decade, may we give back a little of the over return we made in the previous decade. Okay, So you're saying the Bach way? I'm sorry. So are you saying bonds with the better way to go? No no far from it. That could be clear. Think traditional bonds or not a terribly attractive asset class because you get you know what you're making the moment Goodbye. Which Treasury Bond right now is 1%, right? Mike wanted corporate bonds is about 2%. I do think Doctor didn't give you a much higher return the bonds but instead of making 10% per year, Okay, because I think eventually the price of the multiple dropped from what they are today. That reduces the return if you work it out in the mouth. What might have been a 10% return looks more like a 7% return. Because even though I'm paying 23 times earnings today, 10 years from now, someone's gonna pay 16 times those earnings. Earnings are going to grow a lot. 16 times. A lot of earning will work out to my money going about 7% a year but not 10% a year just like getting back to more realistic views per certainly when it comes to the equity returns, said fair, my historical returns. I think that's right. But one other important caveat. It turns out PE ratios. Evaluations literally have zero predictive ability over the next 12 months about where the markets are going. So even if I tell you the market Marginally overvalued versus averages. It could just get more of the values within the next year, and with all the stimulus it's been thrown in this economy and consumers being a great shape. I wouldn't be surprised if the stock market does better than 10% this year. I think all the conditions are in place for a very strong here. This year. Eventually rates will move up and multiple compressive it well. NASDAQ's rt of the linear NASDAQ's already at 5% year to date, So it's you know, halfway there, Um, I do wonder about when you think of portfolio construction. You think their opportunities away from traditional equities and fixed income private private real estate, private credit equity replacements. What? What are the alternatives that you're thinking about? Well in the world, like only make 1% after tax find high quality bonds. Sumika confined. The light vehicles either reeks either in the public markets or even in the private markets, if properly structured, could give me a good radio returns. It Turns out, there are firms that make private loans, the private.

"foster city" Discussed on KPCC
"How could the Capitol Police have been so unprepared to deal with a violent crowd alert? That's father the biggest question out there. Obviously, the threat assessment system or process. Just didn't make it. And frankly, with so much out there that was open source of little bit surprised how underprepared they were. When you saw the protester creatures If you will going into the Capitol building, I would have expected they'd have tactical units standing by, you know, kind of out of sight, which big normal And they weren't there and they had not really substantially increased. The checkpoints demanding at the checkpoints, Frankly, Um, what they did have was read very insufficient for what they faced. And frankly, I don't know. I don't know It's that's an area that has protests all the time. So it's so much larger than this. Yeah, it's It's a normal thing back there is, as the chief of Metro said today. First Amendment expression in the Washington Sea region is a pretty common across No. Metro has at least three specialized civil civil disturbance units that are set up to do that. The wife, please question Proactively to be standing right is something of a surprise in Los Angeles and other cities that saw protests turn into conflict with law enforcement officers. We saw phone projectiles so called less lethal. Um, means of crowd control that were used, although there were some serious injuries caused by those Projectiles. We saw that batons were used in crowd control. We haven't seen all the video, of course, and we haven't heard all the accounts of what happened in these face offs between Capitol police and the mob that was breaking into the building. But did it seem to you like they were equipped with the same tools that Local police have to deal with confrontations in their cities. Some of the same tools. I don't know if they had all the same tools and and I don't know if the Capitol police are necessarily equipped with all the same tools, but what I didn't see Woz tactical units. You know the shields and helmets. The tactical, uh, dress uniforms, if you will that they use for those types of events. I saw was standard where I saw a baton and have heard about the use of pep, not pepper spray. But here, ass right? Tear gas. Yeah, I was gonna say CIA sets of military Trump but was used within the Capitol building. So there was some use of those tools if you will, but But frankly, they were just they were they seem to have been pretty much cut off guard. We've heard from a number of listeners who see this as police responding very differently. And what they would have if they were dealing with an African American crowd of people that had gathered to protest and and we're ready to storm the building. Do you think race plays a role in in their played a role in how law enforcement responded to this today? Well, I would say, uh, that's certainly something that's worth discussion. Um, but the other thing is it's Washington. See if you look back there spent time back there, you know that they have these sorts of that's occurring all the time. And, frankly, A city's go. They don't get too excited about a lot of this because they have protests from the capital in and around the capital in that other problems in town all the time, so You know, you're saying they were complacent because they have protest so frequently that they just under projected what was gonna happen? I don't want to say they've got a business as usual mentality, but they definitely were underprepared for this one. And they just What really well down to is that threat assessment process, which is very delicate on things like this because you're doing with the First Amendment protected activity at the same time, you're also trying to see if there's a You know, assess the threat and you're trying to collect information intelligence to see if there's a credible threat on buildings or people. Um, you could imagine the politics of place. Yeah. Incident when you talk about films Collection here in the U. S, and particularly with First Amendment activities like this. All right now you're breaking up a little bit, but I appreciate your being with us. That's how Kemper CEO of global risk Intelligence and planning. Let's take another listener call. Um, this is ah, Ian in Brentwood, listening to KPCC in Los Angeles in your observation about the day Thank you. I want to make three points briefly. Look, it's history. Kaczynski or Urban Ertegun, Mussolini. None of these people came to power by military coup. They were democratically elected once in office. They undermined the executions. That's what happened today. Who Biden needs to stand up. It's time for President elect Visor to give a speech 16 and bear leaner or Mr President held on this world he needs to speak up. Very forcefully. This cannot continue. Three. If nothing happens easily trump by the 25th amendment. Or trying for sedition. It will just go underground. And in four years you'll have a much worse situation and I appreciate your call. Thank you. Let's take another call. This comes from John listening in ST Paul, Minnesota to Minnesota Public Radio. John Go ahead place. Hey, Where is this real quick? You? I lost my friend. My best friend was Orlando Castillo was murdered here. It's seen after the Minnesota We protest here in Minnesota. And then we protest the killing of Jewish story totally different response. We were called anti fur. We were called Black lives matter. Terrorist domestic terrorists. Nothing we will protest in was police involved Killings of African American men right here today We've seen the real domestic terrorists a real and deeper There were no Tear gas candidates canister shot like they will shout. It has no rubber bullets was shot like they were shot at us here in ST Paul. Or any other time that someone protests police involved. Killings is like how dare you protest? My brother is the response we get from police officers. When we stand up and say we're tired of police involved killing today we saw the real anti For today We saw the real domestic terrorist and we saw how the police respond a little bit differently to black lives when they turn to say that black lives Really do matter. It e guess if you white you're right. And if you're black, you're on. And that's exactly how the African American families feel here today throughout the entire United States America showing his face today the real Patriots are the real terrorists here in the United States of America, and any time you protest police violence, you'll be met with tear gas. Rubber bullets, Mace canisters and police presence that's out of this world National Guard. You can't say they didn't. They didn't prepare right. They weren't prepared. What we saw today was police protecting their brothers. And they listen. Donald Trump in a secure the capital, just like that, If he wanted to, John, I appreciate your call from ST Paul, Minnesota. Thank you very much for being with us. Carina in Pasadena. Listening to, Kpcc says. I think this is a show of white supremacy in action. This is all about race. These extremists came to scare people. I hope this brings us to another point of reckoning with not only race, but social media and Shelly listening in Foster City listening to KQED says, I want to call out the cowardice today. After riling up his supporters. Now the president is hiding behind his keyboard. There's so much cowardice. That's Shelly listening to KQED in foster City in the Bay Area. I want to thank those of you that called in or tweeted your comments to us on this special statewide call in program. We appreciate your being A part of our conversation also want to thank The NPR member stations who picked up our broadcast live this evening, including Capt.

More than 80 clinical trials launch to test coronavirus treatments - Nature.com
"Okay this morning out of foster city Gilead sciences one of the highest profile clinical trials now under way for coronavirus patients generating excitement I want to read you one graph from the article the drug an injectable antiviral in it was given to in January to the first confirmed case of coronavirus in the U. S. a thirty five year old man in Washington he had returned from Wuhan China his symptoms worsened after a week in the hospital and then his conditions improve the next day allow after he received that injection so that is encouraging that is I especially since yesterday the CDC director said this he thinks the epidemic could last into next year so we're talking twenty twenty one and that they're preparing for a widespread outbreak of the seventeen hundred frontline medics they're caring for people in China six of already died so I mean they're they're sold the ebb and flow of this story is disturbing I mean in one day you feel like all maybe they're getting a handle on it and then the next day like yesterday when we said a thirty three percent spike overnight in number of cases reported Indiana as they change the way they recounted well whatever I am I know I know it's up and it's it's not you know ride disconcerting to say the least it's nice to know the US labs are working on something I think they are and that's some good news out of foster city

Equities Cautiously Higher Despite Ongoing Trade Pessimism
"I got to talk to you about Todd what's going on today and even over the last couple days some pretty wild movements in equities broadly defined you know a sea of red it yesterday a sea of green today seemingly all on trade how do you see this going on especially as it feels like we're we're just trading tweeted tweet we are trading tweet tweet must wear in Argentina right yes fair point on you've got mixed signals the bond market with yields plummeting is scaring investors into thinking that a recession is imminent not just potentially overseas but even in America conversely we actually still have growth at very low if not moderate inflation in America and the traditional signals that U. T. as a recession looming are not present in the U. S. we've got full employment we don't have interest rates out of control it feels as if businesses are still growing earnings aren't any debt crises at hand and so investors are confused what to do in an environment where the bond and stock markets give big difference signal so in the context of confusion the volatility increases until such point as fundamentals play out and for the moment the fundamentals are arguing that earnings are still growing in America interest rates are not competing to aggressively with stocks and in the absence of evidence that this economy going to roll over chances are out although more volatile we'll continue to work gradually towards the up side until the weight of the evidence shows us otherwise Allen I really like that you brought it both the equity markets and the bond markets earlier this morning around the opening bell we were having a conversation about the dividend yield and then of course the bond yields and given the big sell off that we've had recently dividend yields again are starting to look more attractive relative to what some would say is a expensive bond market would you agree are you looking at a rotation into equities from bonds or the reverse I think you are seeing a moderate patient into equities I don't want to overstate that but what I would highlight is the way you described it as her out I could be a buyer of stocks in the US today I could earn a higher yield that I earned by buying a ten year treasury bond and I get all the theoretical potential upside of growth for the next ten years which bonds cannot give me so investors are looking at that relative the yield advantage on even on a risk adjusted basis as for like a free option on the growth of America over the next decade you're getting paid why you get that growth for ten years it was a fair that risk history plays out in your favor that's another way of describing what's known as the said model which is a just a different way of looking at the same thing in short even if you bought a stock market at call it eighteen times forward earnings you're getting about a five and a half percent earnings the yield on the dollars to put the stock market versatile little more than one point seven percent for a response that's a huge spread if you look over the last even twenty years that spread is less than two percent now you're getting three and a half percent so equity investors look at that today I'm getting very fairly compensated relative to the payment I'm gonna get a five by a conventional bond as long as they don't think this economy is rolling over I should feel pretty empowered buying stocks that's what that's the Polish argument the yield differential is compelling buy stocks and so what worries you the most for the balance of the year on well clearly the number one thing is you can't deny the political uncertainties tied to the trade tensions and if you really break it down I think when you look at the US and China there's the short term and the long run I think the trade tensions are significant because the uncertainty causes delays and CEOs for making investment decisions which in turn slows down the willingness to hire employees leads to confusion about we've goods and services to ship in where in a racist because some consumers that's all very bad economically that flows don't earnings growth the reason I say there's short term and long run is in the short run which I'm gonna to find is that next year the house until the November election of two thousand twenty apart the current administration and frankly all politicians do have an incentive to get the economy in good shape in front of the election and so there are short term incentives to find a mechanism to come to an amicable solution with China so I actually believe whether you believe it's substantive or superficial there will be a mechanism for the US and its efforts to stabilize the economy in front of the election cycle and for China can't afford to have its economy slow down too much there will be some mechanism to come up with some agreement the reason I say long term is it is in fact true we have an intractable separation China is aiming to become the second world power for the US the US are going to willingly give it away but it's a little bit of inevitability if there's one and a half billion people in China and it's growing rapidly it will eventually happen Alan there and take that long term challenger quickly here for the first time in my career I've heard murmurs of negative rates here in the US for that over into the financials which are the second worst performer in the S. and P. on a month to date without sounding hysterical R. U. S. financials at risk of facing a European like scenario with negative rates overseas I would absolutely say rate of the pressures are ridicule to drop lower and lower I would have to say that's the case it will bear the profitability but U. S. financial system is bitterly better position than the European system it's much stronger capitalization and I don't believe will be as impaired is the European financial system is but the profitability those institutions will be hurt if you'll continue to come down great stuff as always Allen's Afrin is founding partner and co CEO of I II Q. capital he joined us on the phone from foster city
