1:00 am
anna: apple crunch. missed iphone sales and revenue forecasts c shares fall almost 8%. that could see the value slumped by more than $60 billion. >> tech troubles -- yahoo! stocks fall on disappointing results. we check results. anna: spotlight greece. alexis tsipras returns to rally for a second bailout. >> it in frankfurt, the ecb ways emergency funding for greek banks as it is preparing to send another team to athens to monitor austerity complaints. -- austerity compliance.
1:01 am
anna: welcome to "countdown." i'm anna edwards. ryan: i'm ryan chilcote. anna: at 6:00 -- let's have a look at the tech sector. let's start with apple, because i have a chart here that shows the after-hours move we saw -- this was even after the company reported a record third-quarter profit number. revenues were disappointing. ryan: this threatens to remove again that apple saw that huge rally of almost 10%. it could be one of the biggest losses ever. anna: more generally, this was the biggest tech rally since october. will that change in the session today? we have lots to talk about. apple was just one of a few tech giants that reported in yesterday's session. that came after-hours. let's get caroline hyde and paul
1:02 am
sweeney. great pleasure to have you. . let's continue the conversation with apple and what it is. caroline: it's phenomenal when you put it in perspective -- we could see 66 billion dollars worth of its market cap erased. in perspective, that is more than bmws entire market cap. it is a record third-quarter profit, as well -- many people are wondering why. yes, they still climbed 35%, but people want to see more, in excess of the 47.5 million. the sales forecast is for the next quarter -- that missed analyst estimates coming in at about $50 billion. what we are starting to worry about is the pace of growth.
1:03 am
if we say $50 billion next quarter, that's only .8% growth. we had tim cook saying that china's turmoil is creating some near-term speed bumps. the issue is iphones are still their cash cow. what about the other products? the watch he spoke enthusiastically about it. tim cook: sales of the want to did exceed expectations, and they did so despite supply trailing demand at the end of the quarter. to give you a little additional insight, through the end of the corridor, the apple watch sale was higher than the comparable launch. -- comparable launch periods of the ipads. caroline: doing better than the ipad and iphone, but bloomberg
1:04 am
feels there is probably about 1.9 million watches sold. you divided it by the overall average selling price, and you get about 1.9 million. analysts were hoping for 3 million, 5 million watches. the market is doing well but the ipad is continuing to slump. this is why it's affecting asia trade -- this is why suppliers are feeling the heat. ryan: we had another miss on earnings for microsoft. paul: we did. the core pc business, which is facing headwinds, were down 9.5% globally in the quarter. i think there is also concern that windows 10 while it is certainly a very credible upgrade, they not be a game changer or a catalyst for growth. the core pc business remains
1:05 am
challenged. on the flipside we saw some pretty good numbers out of the cloud business which confirms what we saw from sap. a cloud business globally, when you think about amazon still remains a very good story -- but if you are microsoft it is still the core enterprise pc business that remains a challenge. anna: how do you think they look on that note the acquisition? -- that note youkia acquisition? paul: the ink was barely dry -- they are obviously out of the phone business that i think they are very much into the software side similar to what they are doing with their android business. the phone manufacturing business is not for everybody. ryan: take a stand on apple -- it sounds like it is the victim of its own success. is that a fair statement? paul: i think it is.
1:06 am
there was a record quarter, that i think the real challenge is that it is simply an iphone story. the iphone unit sales came in below what they were expecting at that is the third-quarter forecast story. ryan: but they sell 200 million phones of year and they missed by a million -- should we be concerned? paul: if you are an apple investor, you are thinking about -- given the valuation is pretty decent relative to some other stocks -- exactly. there is a tremendous amount of cash. still a very strong story terms of products in the marketplace but investors continue to ask about the next big category. anna: caroline connan that is one big question -- what is the next big category? they are working on a new version of the ipad with a bigger screen, moreover a placement for the laptop. that is something technology
1:07 am
companies will crack, trying to replace what businesses use. caroline: that is what they have signed deals with ibm. interestingly, we also know they are working on a new iphone. they want to launch the updated september. -- the update in september. we are seeing a bit of a slowdown in china and i think what is so interesting is we have see not one but two heavily weighted stocks in the s&p 500 -- microsoft is number two after apple -- they came out and disappointed. there is another tech joy that has, too. yahoo! is down 3%, marissa mayer not getting any slack, because forecasts again missed expectations. we could see sales fall the next quarter. they are investing, getting into mobile and social features -- it is working.
1:08 am
you are starting to see sales up 60% but i think it's the same with apple. people are getting frustrated at the pace -- they want to see more products and more changes, quicker changes from orissa meyer. -- marissa mayer. paul: the simple problem -- the issue is that they have done a tremendous job monetizing their asian assets. alibaba and yahoo! japan have done a wonderful job, but three years into marissa's tenure there is no turn around on the core business. ryan: thank you very much for the insight. we will stay with that story throughout the day -- apple's miss on iphone sales and projected revenue weighing on the shares of its asian suppliers. let's get more on that and what is moving markets in asia with david ingles. david? david: good morning.
1:09 am
just to pick up on your conversation, i think when apple starts reporting, we really look at how its supply chain -- it goes through the whole asian-pacific. the parts are made in south korea. they make their things on the chinese mainland and other places -- then they ship out. what we have here, and some of our clients may be familiar with what it looks like, it is essentially -- it breaks down the supply chain of apple. you have apple in the middle and these are the biggest customers. and there are the suppliers. top 30 -- 22 out of the top 30 suppliers for apple as far as how dependent they are on apple as a percentage of their own revenue -- 22 out of 30 are here in asia.
1:10 am
as he would expect, if apple is your biggest client and they are performing to par, you would expect the clients across the stock prices to fall. this manufacturer -- some get 50% off their revenues. similar proportions of the revenue for a lot of the other companies. you have a touch screen maker in taiwan -- you flip the board and look at japan, similar. not all are declining but a majority are. this one gets 50% of their revenue from apple -- over to south korea, and you are seeing something similar. when you look at this board, some of these companies are both viable and suppliers of apple -- a good example is samsung. one part of the business sells them chips in the other is a direct competitor.
1:11 am
that is a fairly complex relationship. how is this playing out in the market? we have seen better days. we are down about 1% overall, slicing and dicing across the sectors. you see that apple is playing out as far as asia is concerned -- telcos are down industrials are down. for lack of better way to describe it we are extending the sell we saw on wall street. i just want to say -- new zealand has a record high one day ahead of the rbn. that is their policy decision where they are expected -- that is what i have for the moment, back to you. ryan: david ingles, thank you. anna: let's stick with the technology theme and tell you that we will be speaking to one
1:12 am
of the key suppliers of apple. david is taking us through what happened to the share prices and other suppliers, and we will speak to arm holding. we will be talking to them a little later. also on the technology theme, let's talk about what our twitter question is. is the tech rally over? i disappointing report from apple and microsoft and yahoo! -- get in touch with us on twitter. ♪
1:13 am
1:14 am
1:15 am
ryan: it is 6:15 in london, 7:15 in frankfurt. anna: here are the stories you need to know. although apple posted its best
1:16 am
third-quarter profits ever shares fell 8% in after-hours trading. the results fell short of shipments projected. they also missed estimates for a revenue forecast. got new shares also fell in after-hours trading after sales forecast came in below estimates. burress and meyer had been hoping to boost profits but second-quarter revenue remained slack. microsoft shares also took a tumble in late trading after they posted their largest ever quarterly lost, leading toward a seven massive write-down for gnocchinokia. new york's laguardia and jfk airports authorized a strike -- it is set to start tonight and continue tomorrow. most of the employees are for
1:17 am
delta airlines but others are for british airlines and united. ryan: php is powering ahead with boosting its iron ore output despite falling commodity prices and that it global rut. . -- paul allen is standing by with more. paul: they aren't troubled at all -- they are filling in the production boom as was predicted, and bhp fourth quarter numbers bear that out. 60 million tons produced up 14% on year, and beating bhp's own estimates. there will be more in the coming year for 2016. strong members also from the other divisions, particularly petroleum and only copper was
1:18 am
down slightly. we did see bhp's shares decline in trade this morning -- it was nothing to do with production numbers, though. varied in the report, they said it will be a $650 million head to underlying profit. really, nothing to do with the production, and they are completely undeterred about what higher or price is doing. they seem quite content to keep playing the volume game force long as they need to. anna: paul the governor glenn stevens spoke a little while ago in the early hours of the morning. commodity prices continue to weaken and he has been saying that further cuts to the interest rates in australia are on the table -- it would be the first time this year and there is speculation that it could continue. paul: yes.
1:19 am
there was a lot of shadowboxing around this -- glenn stevens took questions after his predictable speech in which a number of people tried to get information out of him to which he laughed it off. central bank governors do play their cards close to their chest, let in terms of the australian dollar the headlines have been framing this in the context of oh the horror. but this is what the reserve bank of australia wanted. when stevens has been talking down the dollar four years, cutting rates consistently and saying he wants to see it and a lower range. that is what he got heading towards a six-year low. he also pointed out in the speech that this has had a beneficial effect and they are beginning to see the expansion rate of a lower currency. services are up half a percent which contributes about the same to gdp.
1:20 am
he points out that it is the same contribution for the iron ore exports over the same period. the australian dollar is not at all troubling the reserve bank of government -- quite the opposite. anna: thank you very much. paul allen. ryan: a busy day in greece -- the prime minister heads to the parliament to try and pass a second batch of measures required by greece's creditors. there is a lot of action in athens as the ecb gathers to discuss dla. we are joined by simon french. another thing the ecb is doing is preparing to send another team for this bailout to assess how well those greeks are implementing the reforms, the austerity that they promised. how do you reckon that will go down? simon: it will be very popular with the greek people.
1:21 am
the greek prime minister spokesman said a deadline of the 20th of august, trying to have a technical team on the ground having gone back to the creditors with the recommendation. the reforms we expect to pass this evening and the third set of reforms sometime in early august to cover product markets labor markets, pension reform. some rather contentious structural reforms that strong economies are struggling to implement. we aren't out of the woods by any means. ryan: you guys say there is a 100% chance of a greg set. -- a grexit. simon: i think that sometimes economists give ourselves a bad name. this is fairly binary -- if you
1:22 am
scenario plan this, and i prefer scenario planning you either have fast contagion where there is a debt write-offs and other peripheral countries go -- we will have a bit of that. the spanish, portuguese, irish electorate look for the same source of relief so you have fast contagion. slow contagion, if greece leaves the eurozone and they restore the drachma, you need a few years before you start to see growth. or you get a model through -- eventually, the first or third scenarios lead to the greek people saying enough is enough. i think the german administration has gone -- we will take the slow contagion over the fast. anna: has one of the messages been then, that we need to be a bit more german if they want to
1:23 am
stay in the euro? the other conclusion you come to -- if you think that is what we learned -- is that they hear that message in followthrough. you don't think that is deliverable? simon: i don't. if you look at the uk's experience the test that we had, we failed on convergence and integration. those are the two areas where the peripheral countries are finding it difficult to align themselves to the northern core economies. when you had a big economic shock like the financial crisis the economies the different economic medicine and that is a fundamental structural problem with the single currency. without fiscal integration, you won't be in a position to deliver. they don't have the political firepower.
1:24 am
one of the scenarios in terms of kicking the can down the road is have a mario monti style technocrat government. that looked likely quite recently when alexis tsipras lost a lot of support -- i think we are away from that position formally but to get through this package, he is relying on opposition -- that is what you have to do. ryan: you mentioned of u.k. -- we have the bank of england minutes coming out this morning. what are you expecting and what does it tell us about where we are going? there is a lot of headwind. simon: four days ago, this was expected to be another very boring bank of england minutes session. but mark carney's speech last thursday really change that -- he started changing the narrative from looking at the data to putting a timeline on this -- the end of the year
1:25 am
being ready for higher interest rates. we have been there before, but i think the constraints in the labor market this time -- we are looking for signs of that moderate core at the center of the mpc. mark carney, christian forbes signs that they will join on the side of looking for higher interest rates. anna: is that what you think carney was signaling? i thought the interpretation was that at the turn of the year, he would get better visibility on inflation, for example and the oil price shock will have dropped. we will just know more about whether we are in a position to have higher interest rates. to think he was actually signaling that rates will go higher? simon: i think he was. we've had q1 2016 for quite some time and i stick to that view. yes, there are two key factors that you will want to wait for
1:26 am
december, the strength of sterling supporting deflation, and also what goes on medium-term on oil prices, which are seeing downward pressures. should those two factors come to pass, that it will again moved to the right, but i think carney is right and probably reflects that moderate core, closer than they have been. ryan: what does that mean for the pound? we have been stuck in this range with the pound having trouble to get back to $1.50. simon: and i think it will struggle in the short term simply because of the amount of structural weakness across the world economy means that the pound can race ahead. ryan: simon french, thank you very much. coming up on "countdown," the bank of england minutes for the july meeting come out at night: 30 this morning, but there is a desire to start tightening soon that could hike rates.

>> it is 6:30 a.m. in london here at 30 a.m. in brussels. anna: apple posting its best profit ever in after-hours trading iphone sales climbed. the tech giant also missed estimates or revenue forecast for the current period. yahoo! shares also fell in after-hours trading. marissa mayer have been hoping to boost growth by investing in mobile, social media, and video. revenue remained relatively flat.
1:31 am
microsoft shares also took a tumble in late trading after the software maker posted its largest ever quarterly loss. weighing in on the result was a write-down related to the purchase of nokia's handset. the great prime minister will return to parliament today. lawmakers are set to vote on a second package of measures demanded why the creditors. ecb will discuss emergency liquidity assistance to give greece alive. ryan: 37 arrested four people in israel and florida. it was tied to the hacking of jpmorgan. we will hear the explanation for this complex story. it starts with pumping and dumping. what is that?
1:32 am
elliott: pumping and dumping basically you encourage others to buy a stock. that is a pumping. ishares go up. when shares go up, you sell the dumping. two were arrested in israel. there allegedly involved in such a stock manipulation scheme. there's been a separate case that the two arrests did place in the u.s. what is interesting is people from those allegedly involved in the money chest for business let involved in stock manipulation. they are old that is from the time at florida state university. additionally in a previously unopened memo from the fbi, the to them were alleged to have linked to the hacks of jpmorgan. there was a fifth person who is charged, but not arrested the simple reason he's believed to
1:33 am
be in russia beyond the long reach of the u.s. authorities. perhaps has links to the underground russian cyber underground depending on how you want to describe it. it is located -- complicated. a very complex case. tentacles extending here into israel and the u.s. and russia. anna: some of the details of the data from jpmorgan are quite staggering. not least of which is the debt may have got a hold of of what they did or did not do with it. elliott: that's right. the metadata he got access to come it is intriguing. a three-month period. access to critical functions.
1:34 am
they have access to tens of millions of e-mails. there were talks of gigabytes of data. they access to at least 100 service. you think when you -- or servers. you think when you hack into a bank come you still money. what happened is they believe -- authorities believe -- they wanted to disrupt it will details of customers names and use those names to send out these mass e-mails to encourage people to buy particular stock. they even tried to encourage people to take by the company's public in order to help pump though shares and allow them to carry on with something and dumping scheme. -- pumping and dumping scheme. in 2014, they spent a quarter of a billion dollars on internet security.
1:35 am
anna: thank you very much. was elliott joining us from tel aviv. ryan: let's turn to the u.k. the minutes go on at 9 a.m. this morning. i don't expect the notes to show that the numbers are voting to keep rates on hold, but it gets more interesting. several may indicate they think tightening should begin soon. that might mean this is the last month of anonymous a -- anonymit y. have a listen. >> what listens to the governor speech over the last few days. i think he was clear that way. his of the future direction of interest rates. anna: george osborne also expressed confidence in the installation expectation. >> it would be a challenge economy, but i'm confident
1:36 am
monetary policy framework is robust and can deal with whatever is thrown them. i think it is worth paying attention to what was given to this committee in various speeches over the last year or two. the prices equate to inflation. they both point out that expectations are blinkered. -- well angered -- anchored. ryan: let's get more george osborne's comments from our guest. global market strategist. thank you for joining us. i want to ask you what exactly osborne's budget means when you look at the prospect of a rate
1:37 am
rise and the pack? david: i think it is might be pro-rate rise. going into it, we were quite scared that the investment -- adjustment would be so aggressive and inflation expectations would be revised down. i think coming out of the budget you saw that slight relaxation. a balance between spending and tax raises. i think that the prospects are back because of the budget. it cleared the way it worked. anna: don't be scared. [laughter] what about the rape picture for the u.k.? -- rate picture for the u.k.?
1:38 am
third quarter next year is when it is coming. is that his plan question mark does that mean we will have more data? david: the letter of those two. he used to say look, rates could go up. or it could go down. most the time it did very little. he is trying to show a few things. it could cut interest rates. now he is appearing in front of all attentions. i'll try to push up as soon as it is necessary. i do believe it is -- the biggest data -- core inflation is simply too low.
1:39 am
that trend is unbroken. preferably a few ticks higher. anna: you say there are tentative time -- science -- signs. what are the clues? david: a somewhat weaker labor force. anna: run that by me again. david: you're the needless labor. we have seen a situation where it has been flat. there is a huge surge in
1:40 am
employment. this of the a bullish sign for the economy. far too early to say that is definitely happening. ryan: it had a nice rally. on the 13th come it looks like it's stalled. david: it is not much to deal with the u.k.. it is a huge amount of exposure. it was also suffering from that. you either go through an active
1:41 am
manager or you invest in smaller caps of structure. that is a better place to look. anna: a lot of questions about inflection points. commodities. a lot yesterday. today, technology stocks. thank you so much. david stays with us. take us through some of the stories of what is doing well. can't stop and won't stop. white gold miners just keep digging -- why gold miners just keep digging. >> what happened was when prices were high, miners took on a lot of debt. but is happening is to service

1:43 am

2:01 am
it is just gone 7:00 here in london. if you this hour, we are looking at if the company will look comfortable enough. will it have enough his ability? what will they say about oil prices? that could be of interest. let's like about technology. arm is very topical. carolina standing by. caroline: exactly, this is a chip designer you'll see used in nearly every single smartphone on the planet. it is a miss when you look at arm holdings. the estimate had been 235 million pounds, only slightly shy.
2:02 am
there dividend of 3.15 pence. this is a company that says we're entering the second half of 2015 with a robust pipeline. this is a company that only sells licenses for its ip, then it gains royalties everything up time samsung or apple uses the chip design. they get money, they get royalty. is the china slowdown that we saw highlighted in apple's earnings starting to weigh on arm? is this them hinting that they will not be affected by the chinese slowdown? as we see apple start to highlight this in the very own numbers. overall, a bit of a miss, but talking confidently. the chief executive is coming in a bit later. he also lives in silicon valley. looking around, i wnt t -- want
2:03 am
to bring you those numbers. we saw a slump in their market value after hours they declined more than 8.8% after hours. that is wiping out in much the entire market value of bmw. we've seen a concern with iphone sales. still, tim cook sounded optimistic. tim cook: what is going on with iphone to 35% growth is almost three times the market. if you look at a little narrower regional level, western europe grew 30%. four times market, japan grew over five times market. we doubled in korea versus a shrinking market.
2:04 am
caroline: he is talking very optimistically. china is the worry here. this is another concern, their forecast for the next quarter missed. we will see $50 billion brought in, that is still a hefty whack of sales. but it is only increasing by less than a percent on the previous quarter. that is a dramatic slowdown. usually you see cap percent growth. it looks like it is china weighing on them. 20% drop. tim cook said china's turmoil could create some near-term speed bumps. i also wonder my do they are trying to bring in new products. iphones are still the key cash cow. they are trying to bring in the apple watch. we did some math, we think probably 1.9 million watches
2:05 am
sold. a billion dollars worth was added to that. you divide that by the average selling price. the mac doing pretty well, but only 12% of overall sales. the ipads are slowing. they can't offset the slowing in iphone growth. anna: caroline, thank you very much. before return to our conversation to our tech revenue proceedings better than in the previous guidance. that is already sound policy. their forecast as a pretext. we asked just a moment ago they were confident enough to give us that forecasts, and they do. they think it will be between 620 and 660 million pounds. it seems easy to go with a wider

range. perhaps that could be interpreted. ryan: they are saying they see four-year sales up. they see the april disruptions is looking back. mostly, a forward-looking statement and mostly an upbeat one. 77% of the second half of the year is now booked. anna: we will talk more about easyjet in the developing airport story in the u.k. later on. let's talk to jasper. we are rejoined now onset. paul would you like to stick with apple? there are so many other stories. paul: apple is the 800 pound
2:07 am
gorilla in the room. the takeaway is some of the bears are warming this remains an iphone story exclusively. i think that is what we are seeing in the stock. the apple watch is too early to call whether this is a product that can be counted on to drive growth going forward. that is a story that will play out. david: we are looking at the steepest post earnings drop since 2013. it is a case of apple being a victim of its own success? paul: i think so. they have had such a great tarack r -- track record it is a product refresh or a new category. i think the issue for apple is the numbers of very good and we
2:08 am
will have a reset here. when you listen to tim cook's comments, and markets around the world the product is still well-positioned. anna: there are plenty of other tech stories. david, let's get your look. we're asking today on twitter whether we think the tech rally is over. we've seen strong numbers going into the season, but now they seem to be disappointing. david: somewhat, yes. i still like the technology sector as one of the key overweight's. ryan: you see this as an opportunity to buy? david: i absolutely believe the board of technology center will benefit for the next phase we will see. that will be propelled by twioo main things -- consumer spending. they are selling key devices which are essential to our lives
2:09 am
unlike late 90's. of course also business investment. i think business investment to be the key driver of this search for productivity. ryan: you like apple? david: honored individual stock basis, i w would not bet against these guys. every time you doubt than the comella something. what about the apple tv? talk about the watch they don't tell us numbers. they say compared to the iphone they are selling more. the iphone now is this cash cow. it is a first generation device. everyone i know that bought it loves the thing. ryan: i think it is some of the market is very intrigued about. the whole wearables market it is a market that is waiting to explode.
2:10 am
the question is, what is the product? paul: we heard the talk a lot about china. you just mentioned the economic backdrop and how you expect that to aid tech going forward. what do we learn? sales are uop nonethelep. david: most technology companies would tell you that it's a minute will be a growth driver going forward. clearly the market has taken a step forward. if you look at the technology across the board, they still feel like china is going to be in place for long-term growth. you go indirectly, do you joint venture? the long-term china story is still intact. anna: i wonder if microsoft has regrets for a move made? perhaps a run nokia? paul: the deal just barely
2:11 am
closed. it is another example of the phone manufacturing business is not a place to be for most companies. google did a big step back when they went on the motorola acquisition. now he with microsoft, i think it is still very much into the software side of the business. they just don't need to be into the hardware manufacturing side. anna: david, are you actively seeking technology businesses that are vacant the cloud? -- big into cloud? david: i think anytime you can find businesses that are pioneering the next phase is something you want to be involved in. however, something like technology, which can be disrupted so easily, you want to run a broadly diversified portfolio of technology names.
2:12 am
otherwise, making sure you have some exposure to different avenues with the future could go is prudent. anna: i love the stat that you say tech investment is well below the average. is that because companies about investing? david: that is net investments. if you want to write things off as well. there has been some skepticism of the economic expansion in the u.s. throughout this recovery. businesses included. now once the federal reserve, once received from her wage growth, i think there will be no doubt that the expansion is now fully mature. you should see the business investment kick in. with a the factories? will it the buildings? the underinvestment we have
2:13 am
seen. i think is one of the keys to why technology will be at the forefront of business expenditure going forward. ryan: thank you very much. david will be staying with us throughout. this morning we speak to one of the suppliers of apple that is arm holdings. simon joins us later this morning. you have to watch that. it is also our twitter question of the day. anna: is the tech rally over? ryan: coming up on "countdown" apple tumbles in after-hours trade. we will have more in what is moving the markets in asia right after the break. ♪

2:19 am
it is just an extension of the selloff we saw on wall street. that is what we woke up to. we are down 1% overall for the regional benchmark. of course, on the very east end extremes, you have a few bright spots. i want to focus on new zealand, i think that is about a six or seven day of gains. announcing its monetary policy direction. generally speaking, i don't know why we expected to bring rates down. that is just a done deal. we are up .9%. everything in the middle is really taking a hit. we woke up in asia, it seemed as if there was a positive commodity, as the hours went on
2:20 am
things just started to decline. gold is now down, oil is also taking a tumble. i just want to mention what he is saying this more for the fx markets was that they were considering more rate cuts. you signed immediate drop in the aussie dollar. china is behaving itself only down .3%. we do have more companies coming online now. only a total distance, that is a story across, sector wise people are selling off at this point. a lot of these areas in asia you take a look at telco is down, tech stocks are down.

2:23 am
rewarded by the market. if this continues, which is still very cheap on several measures, if you pair that with the aggressive monetary policy we still like investing in chinese shares. anna: are you more excited about more easing in japan? or is it about how it moves away from fixed income? david: there certainly are a lot of tailwinds. the bank of japan was buying everything it can get its hands on. it is now a much more diverse and more exciting story. yes your pension funds changing, and of the big buyer in the market. the real successful long-term japanese equity returns will be how the companies themselves
2:24 am
change how they run and how they address their shareholders. 44% the rest of the g7 is only by 21%. you do the math, and it gets pretty exciting. anna: what about australia? a lot of focus on countries that rely so much a commodities. david: my long-term pessimism this in the place with affiliate. this is an economy which has been overly reliant on commodities were too long. now it is suffering because the mining investment has been falling. the non-mining economy is really not strong enough. let's be clear, there is to lay long way to go. mining investment in australia is still well over 6% of gdp. there is a lot further for this to go. we have seen some inflation a touch weaker than expected. of course, governor stephen saying maybe rate cuts are back
2:25 am
on the table. i think they firmly never left the table, frankly. this is been a long and protracted rate cutting cycle. every few months policymakers say it is not. we was a significant policies then. we go to the australian dollar. at some point this is a great opportunity for the nonmining parts of australia officials equity markets. anna: when the australian economy might lose out airlines might gain, of course. reporting their numbers today, we are looking out across all of these airlines and see what they have to say about their fuel bills. not a great deal of detail, but what are you looking for? the hedging -- david: a lot of them hedge tgehe fuel price.
2:26 am
you have a pretty impressive performance industrywide in terms of revenue. if the revenues are going up that is a business you want to invest in. i think in terms of the thing that we need to discuss with japan itself we change corporate governance. it is an industry that has suffered from boom and bust cycles and how much it supplies to the market. simply how many planes do they buy? now with a load factor which is a percentage of the capacity they are utilizing, it has been high for a couple of years. it says to me that we're seeing a much more prudent willingness to put on and supply new roots and capacities. that is a sign that i am excited about. anna: a lot of airlines this time. thank you very much. ryan: moving on, coming up on

2:39 am
than you would expect. ryan: gold just dipped below $1100. we could go below a thousand. what do you reckon? colin: gold was always going to be under pressure. we have been surprised by the severity of it. we're still perhaps a ways away. we expect the american consumer itching of a lot of cash the moment. the wage inflation is still quite strong. overall, we haven't seen the same way. that is been part of the surprise. anna: if you look a commodities more generally, all metals trading now below their long-range expectations. those are falling. all the commodities mind and
2:40 am
extracted commodities, all of them are in that falling prices. this doesn't sound like it is turning around anytime soon. colin: the only thing they can turn it around his strong capacity cuts. demand expectations continue to be run back. we are probably not too far off from a global industrial recession. that did continue to trend. ryan: a quick word of iron ore. despite the fact that the price of iron ore is going down. the average price around $53 upon -- a ton.. at what price to the deceased to be sent to go for them to get it out of the ground? colin: they can produce. it is the marginal players that are under pressure.
2:41 am
we've lost 200 million tons, and we will have to lose some more. it will be much more pressure. ryan: we get earnings on friday. do you think the dividend in general and energy companies is under threat? colin: for many of these companies dividends are always tough to do. we see a key part of the portfolio there has to be pressure on them. anna: were you surprised at how the gold prices performed at the height of the greek crisis? it's not see the flight to safety. colin: we had china greece falling apart, and goal to did nothing. to be fair, we thought at that point gold would continue to do nothing. and the time sense, it is

strange, gold is not reacting the way it used to. that is not the say it is not a safe haven. ryan: quick hit on oil? they will get inventory numbers in the states today, we got the number to yesterday from the american petroleum institute. what do you see that going? anna go much lower? colin: we're still in that market with the surplus is speaking. we are still getting inventory. ryan: it feels a lot like the iron ore market. colin: we are trying to invoke some supply cuts. anna: colin, thank you very much. you are looking at a live shot of london. this is wednesday morning.

2:49 am
michael, good to see you. give us the benefit of your insight. what is going on in technology versus the rest of the u.s. market? you had a lot of technology news. we saw a record highs of the nasdaq over recent days. that wasn't the case in other areas. michael: i posted a chart where i identified some significant places between the nasdaq and the s&p. the nasdaq is making all-time highs, the s&p hasn't. more interestingly, it has been trending lower. the dow has done the same thing. i've that suggests to me that this current rally is very vulnerable. i think those earnings are pretty much confirming that. the question is, does this precipitate a large-scale selloff? i don't think it does. but what it does do is focus
2:50 am
investors attention much more on earnings. i was looking at netflix just before i came on. 457 times earnings. ryan: and a bargain at that. i go -- michael: you compare that to apple, and a know which stock would like to own and it is not netflix. i think it is indicative of some of the stretch valuations we are seeing. ryan: it is up over 500%. most that was over a week ago. what do you expect the now? michael: again, if i was looking at commodities broadly, and natural gas was down, crude oil down, copper down, sugar, down, grains down. there is definitely a trend there.
2:51 am
it does not bode well for inflation. that brings up another question the rate hike in september -- why? there is no inflation. anna: but they are looking at the labor market, are today? michael: the strength of the dollar is tied up all by itself. the dollar index is up 8% this year alone. i think you will see evidence of that. the airport last night, tim cook suggested that it is difficult. china sales are down 21%. that suggests to me that given china is selling down, you can't take for granted that you will continue to get the earnings growth that we have been seeing. anna: you mention the headwinds in the currency. some suggested maybe that would not be such a story. it was still stronger than it was in the second quarter the previous year.
2:52 am
michael: it is definitely a story. i think it is complacent to suggest otherwise. at some point, we could see that. dollar/yen could really top out given corroded comments yesterday. ryan: there is a lot of focus right now one commodity currencies really taking a hit. australia, -- michael: that brings in of the points to the fore. why is the central bank pulling rates lower? we could see further easing in australia. that is a big problem -- anna: i remember at the height of the financial crisis people talking about central banks could go into printed director and's. this seemed to be decoupled. and they realize there were linkages.
2:53 am
michael: globalization. that is what we are seeing right now. ryan: it makes you wonder about the sanctity of dividends. michael: i think they have to look at the dividends. they may cut it. if the direction of travel is indicative, i think it is under threat. there was no sign a want to cut production. rather get some revenue through the door. anna: when you start a play that getting towards the end of the year game, too early for that? michael: i have been talking up footsie -- ftse. everyone was talking about that given how heavy it is in terms of commodity. anna: thank you very much.
