tv Squawk on the Street CNBC April 22, 2015 9:00am-11:01am EDT
business 13 years? do you sell in the united states or elsewhere? >> just the united states. we do have some in canada and working on australia. >> did you bring one for us all to keep? is that how this works? >> good-bye, everybody. time for squawk on the street. >> good morning and welcome to squawk on the street. i'm david with newly wed jim cramer. he's ready to go too, man. let's give you a look this morning. we are looking for i guess i'll all that an open after yesterday's down day. crude oil, 10 year note is what we go to.
10 year. that seems to happen so frequently yet. 1.9 is the yield you'll get for loaning your u.s. government the money for 10 years. let's start with the road map and it starts with earnings. mcdonald's, all out with stocks. is a google wireless phone service launching today? a new report on the move that could maybe shake up the industry. how about the turn around? they plan for yahoo japan in the spotlight. the core business we're going to talk more about it. you're not paying much for it. maybe there's a reason. let's start with mcdonds as sales continue to slump, the fast food chain expects sales to come in negative for april. mcdonds release initial details of its turn around plan next
month. in the meantime, chipolte's being up 10.4% were a bit below what the analyst were expecting. yum brands were down 12% in a very important market for it yes, you can say it with me china. you want to start with mcdonald's? >> yeah. we're missing it. the revenues were made. i was shocked. this was not a bad quarter. i honestly we could go back and look line by line and look at the big picture, the forest not the trees, it made the revenues. they came in at 2.3. 2.3% drop. they gave you hope big early meeting and talked about ray crock.
talking about bold action this man is winning them over. >> you believe that. this is so important in the overall echo system if you will and we talked often about the fact that cost per franchise are far higher than they are at competitors such as burger king. >> i've got to tell you, i think easter brook is giving you hope and dividend is giving you safety. giving the u.s. government what you get. given the money, mcdonds you get better. there's a lot of hope there. i don't think it's displaced. now, i think the most hilarious thing is the controversy about young verses chipolte. suddenly, we love yum. they're only down 12% in china, not 15. among these, natural organic losing? i don't know. there's a great line. people have to do homework on chipolte before they write it
off. there's 85 ingredients in the single fast food competitor. there's only 65 ingredients in an entire chipolte. 800 artificial preservatives. people like natural organic but chipolte doesn't like inhumane treatment of pigs. if you're going to grow pigs in a factory environment with slatted floors and no bedding, they're not going to take it. they gave away pork rather than serve it. this is a controversy i think we reserve and the companies being conservative. i like the quartearter. wait 10 days. this is the thing you had to do this time. you caught the bottom in the 470s. a billion dollar quarter for the first time. 2.5 million per store. only making 2 million three years ago. that's amazing.
>> he's turning into sarah. >> sarah's going to be joining us in a minute on coca-cola. you were on a roll. >> i think there's so much here that's great and i do believe, by the way, in the end rotating black out of cornetus turned people off. you have to understand there was a rolling black out instead of just saying this became kind of a treasure. that turned people off. that's not going to happen again. they're going to give them where it has to be. don't forget food prices are up. last year at this time last year they gave you the same kind of thing. they said look we can't continue to give you is sale numbers. everyone sold the stock down.
this was march 2014. it went all the way to 474 after reporting a so-called bad quarter. if you wait 10 days here you'll capture a great price. >> let's move on to yum now. i mentioned china the key market and double digit cop store sales declines. yet that stock could be up as much as three bucks. we're talking about a nice% panel move. >> china, i imagine having 80 ingredients in a burrito, it's kfc over there. i think many people came back. there could be a turn. the turn doesn't occur overnight. i see a number of hundred dollar price targets. this is not an expensive stock. it's always been kfc china. people like this. is there a real take away about buying mcdonald's? yes. here it is.
is it internationally people are not conserved? coca-cola coca-cola, the rate of decline of diet sodas is no longer as steep as its been. maybe some people like inorganic and natural. >> i like pop tarts. you could read that all day, the number of ingreend yent-- ingredients in a pop tart. you know how to make one? >> i don't. >> i had carl's granola this morning. >> coca-cola posted earnings at 48% a share. revenue rose for the first time in quarters. you've seen her already and now jim can talk to sarah as well. she spoke with coca-cola's cfo.
you mentioned, of course the slowing decline. >> 6% down. that was a little bit better. >> i think that's interesting. a lot of people felt like the diet coke anville was just going to keep sinking. >> 4% volume growth in spray. actually what sold a lot there was the wine. >> the good stuff. >> it was 8% organic growth that surprised people. aggressive pricing was the headline. when i talked to kathy, the cfe, she talked 3% increase. don't get use to that. it's not going to last. they start taking these moves. when they say pricing they start charging higher pricing. that helped a lot during this
quarter. the other temporary factor here is they did and she told me this benefit from an easter shift and six extra days of selling. they're still calling this a transitional year. they had been very clear that's what it's about. productivity, cost cutting. reinvesting in brands. she said we feel good about the quarter. >> i like the fact it's a cheaper bank for the buck. they're up to 20% of add ver vising media. they get more sales from using social media. the other thing i like is the monster beverage deal closes this quarter. that's the distribution version. that's going to boost revenues. do not forget there's a lot of hope here which they have a big investment in. >> two big investments which people continue to speculate
eventually. >> they're going to become expensive thanks to the coke investments. >> true. maybe coca-cola is the conservative way. they took out some of the natural juice in monster last quarter and sales were boosted by that. there's clearly some sort of bizarre backlash between people who would actually prefer not to get sick from what they eat and people who seem to be neutral on the issue. the other thing i want to mention is they're fully hedged. two big markets overseas. it's the merging markets that are better hitting them. they kept their outlook for the year. mid-to single digit kind of growth for the year excurrencies and that was better than the nationals which are getting
slammed on these currencies. >> they deserve credit here. they're starting to pay off. it's ahead of schedule. nice cash flow. >> they're saying listen we're going to have a meeting. >> it's going to give you a turn around plan. >> i've got all week. the cfo live from atlanta. >> i may go to atlanta. it's the opening eagles game is a monday night game in atlanta. >> that won't be until the fall. >> you're going to get ready and go now. >> i got the schedule last night. that's why the schedule comes out so people that are football fans can take the day off. >> sarah, we'll see you again at 10:00. >> not going to look your way again for the rest of the show. >> she's disappearing for a little bit. >> boeing beats with 97% a
share. that's jumping commercial revenue. the dow reconfirming for earnings and deliveries. we get through a lot of these big names and this earnings parade here, jim. looks down a bit. >> there's always a margin issue. to me the stock has had a markable run. we're still waiting for the dream liner to breakout. i don't think it's going to be appealed. by the way, to be sure as much as i like honey well, as much as i like technology this one is still a key. no one looked at ati.
much like rti, i'm saying if it's involved in aero space, don't sell it. >> we have melissa myer we have her sending a message that's helping overshadow her accompany'saccompanycompany's earnings. also, ahead, scott mcgregor. there's another look at futures coming your way. we're popping up a little bit as we head towards the open. we have a lot more squawk on the street right after this.
determine the most promising opportunities to maximize value. it's a key priority to explore the options thoroughly. >> embarking the plan to spin off in full. yahoo japan another significant asset about the accompany. yahoo japan is controlled by soft bank. as for the quarter itself i had a chance to talk to a couple of investor investors. maybe not quiet as bad as it looked at first. the operating expense keeps coming down. they've been under pressure from activist shareholder jeff smith, for example. they cut 1,100 jobs during the quarter. i know guys who are following, there are ways to follow people losing their jobs. it sounds you can look for whose looking, all the different online postings that go on and
there are people closely following this because that's a big number. the operating expense coming down. >> in many places. this accompany was really poorly run and i think it's layer after layer that they have to peel. david, i think that this accompany is in the same race as a lot of others. they call it in ibm they can call it something. mobile video social you need that. obviously, this is growth. this is similar to that part of the strategic world. you've got to be in those areas. you can't be desktop. >> of course you need to new initiatives to overtake the old at some point. it's not happening yet. >> no, in the meantime the stock just pops when they mention japan. >> right. well here's the thing. you're getting by most math that is done out there from investors based on the discounting what the spending will be worth and yahoo japan and what it's worth, you're getting the core business
for nothing. >> for free. >> it is still generating cash. it is still creating so to speak. that said you've got an operating expense base that's declining. from a bigger point i've made times now, there's no clear turn around. >> no. a lot of that they're spending money on search. search is owned by another accompany. >> they redid the deal with microsoft last week. >> look in the end. search the owned by one accompany. it's a accompany that people feel has a monopoly. when on the other side of a monopoly feels terrible. >> they may be replaced by twisertwis twitter as the third seller. >> it wouldn't shock me. these are all about the smart phone. i know you're on the verizon call. there's still many people who do not have these which is
incredible. we have the lady last week. i asked her whether they could go to the smaller bundle and she said they would be fine. meanwhile, she says not fine with us, fox says not fine with us. comcast, not fine with us. >> who is it fine with? it's fine with no one. seems like the contract violations, how could they get away with this? >> i don't know. it's the question i asked. she didn't provide an insightful answer at the time but now they're in trouble with we'll see, they're moving ahead. ceo is saying hey, we're going to do these smaller bundles. >> i thought that was amazing. i went to law school didn't practice. there's things like contrast. you have to have a meeting of
it took tennis legend serena williams, fencing champion tim morehouse and the rockettes years to master their craft. but only moments to master paying bills at chase.com. depositing checks at the atm and transferring funds on the mobile app. technology designed for you. so you can easily master the way you bank. why do we do it? why do we spend every waking moment, thinking about people? why are we so committed to keeping you connected? why combine performance with a conscience? why innovate for a future without accidents? why do any of it? why do all of it? because if it matters to you it's everything to us. the xc60 crossover. from volvo. lease the well equiped volvo xc60 today.
welcome back. >> let's start with broadcom. >> scott has bitten the bullet and gotten out of a lot of business that's not good. they had big business with apple, samsung, cisco. all good reads for those. we have connectivity, all strong doing a 5g bill out. they have a very big road map. people want it. this was very very positive quarter. a lot of people rerating this stock from thinking it was -- to being the envy of people. we know these are very loved, broadcom very good quarter. scott will make you want to own it. he tells you a story of a major league transformation.
daiftd david, there isn't anything left. they had tough actions. >> yep, was a strong performer then. >> wellthere's a lot of stuff there. >> all right. let's move to a deal. yet again, a lot of consolidation among the real-estate trust. associated states being required for 75% cash. they own the world financial center. they're regaining what they play here. >> all cash deals you might expect it would be there. they are mostly based in ohio i guess. >> they do deliver. one of the things we've seen david, there's way too many reads. the simon deal. >> which did not happen. at least it hasn't happened yet.
>> i've got to tell you, there's so many synergies when we merge these two. >> i said listen these guys have it together. they are companies producing growth and income. this is a good deal. i think brookfield will give you growth and income. this industry is going to have five or six huge players. >> one of the closings expected to be in the second half of the 2015 again. 28.75. >> mergers continue. i know we have a favorite report that covered a three way battle. that's got to be the most exciting thing. >> it's fascinating. what will happen? yeah, that will be on the favor report. >> israeli companies that do big business here that are mostly dutch. >> it is really, you can't even make this stuff up. before we get to that we have the opening bell a few minutes away. back after this. automotive innovation starts...

you're watching squawk on the street. the opening bell for this wednesday. back in hq, recomposing itself. looks like a bit more green than red. let's wait and see actually. i don't want to jump ahead. the opening bell there's the s&p real time exchange and let me tell you who rang that bell. united nations and i shares highlighting earth day. low carbon etf. i think they need a new name. >> yeah, that's a mouth full. by the way, at 3:30 the futures were up nicely. between 3:30 and 4:00 they got hit. a lot of this may have been the french terrorist action. the market never got covered. i've got to tell you i'm
surprised at how wrong the futures were. >> oh at the nasdaq earth day celebration. they were waiting. we said something to cheer. so many different places to go. >> so many things that first look down and go up. you can see. i read through the quarter russia bad, china bad, execution and stocks up. you start thinking okay what's some of them going to do. >> elliott's already gone down that road to a certain extent. we're talking llc and hewitt pack packard and nothing happened. >> people come to sbu igs. >> sometimes. it reminds me of alteror. we heard from broadcom, the strong numbers. altera reporting tomorrow i
think after the bell. they may not be great number altera. which may be a surprise when you're willing to turn down 54 bucks a share. putting up earnings numbers that indicates why you're in a position to turn down a large multiple multiple deal that many shareholders encourage you to recorr. if they don't put up good numbers but bad numbers. >> it will be very interesting to see why altera can justify saying no given the fact if the quarter is not that good. that stock is up on air. >> i don't want to prejudge it. it is up in the air a bit. these are the numbers people might have not anticipated given their robust ejection again.
>> what if they win some contracts? that would be devastating. i'll give you another example. vertex. you can't kill the rumors. it's almost as if somebody says let's rumor this. one thing that's changed is the analyst make these calls. they use to no do that. the way allen did in the 80s. >> there was a hand full of analyst, very few were willing to do those kinds of things or talk take overs way back when i can remember some guys. it's much more prevalent now. bernstein writes a piece saying what about this and that. >> smith. >> or even a golden sack saying break up jpmorgan. >> that's one of the drivers. if a professional analyst makes that call as opposed to a rumor
you have to discuss it. you can't shelve it. we have to discuss the vertex. >> because it showed up in gilliad. >> we'll discuss perego. >> we can't discuss that yet. i think we need to talk about the parent accompany comcast for a moment. there's so much connected to comcast deals to require time westerner cable warner cable. if this were not to occur, you would have the creation conceivably of great land. this accompany that is being created out of the subs that will be spun from comcast time warner. so much riding on that. meeting today at the d.o.j.
i'm airing basically that this is not a high level meaning. you're not talking about the kingpin's going. it's new staff with staff. >> in the end, let's find out what you're thinking. what are your objections here at d.o.j.? what are they based on? some reading a lot into it. what comes out of the meeting? doesn't mean something significant won't. i don't believe senior members are attending. >> david, the reporting on this one is going from yeah, it's going to happen to look there are things that comcast did. comcast disputes them and the parent accompany is in violation of a previous deal. i don't see this violation. what happens is they're senators. senator frank who should have no influence here. what surprises me still, jim, is the fact that the d.o.j. is active here. frankly, my anticipation has
been that you get the f.c.c. involved. it was the first question i asked brian roberts when the deal was announced back in february 2014. nachlly, market power and broad band. market power and broad band. yes, the f.c.c. would they look at that? we knew they would. the d.o.j. they don't compete. >> they don't. what's amazing to me even during the time that the deal was announced, there's five more guys i can get programming from. hongsly, honestly, the events are overtaking the reason to block it. to me if it's justice and like the big bank deals, in the end it's the top guy at the d.o.j. and the top guy at comcast and everything else is a dance. >> the f.c.c. is more important. they were considering queening a hearing. by the way they never do that. they've got one guy on that whole hearing staff if the
d.o.j. were the try you, they've got to get an injunction to stop st. deals unclear to me. we'll see, the point is there are certainly a lot of question marks around comcast to complete the transit actions. no break fee. of course, don't forget that. at this point the two sides have to be very much committed to work it out. time westerner cable doesn't want to be reached. that will seal it. >> comcast indicates there's still a lot of faith that the d.o.j. done. i find this fascinating because when i read the papers it's almost as if my justice department is doing what they did for the banks. they'll say listen we're having trouble with this. >> let the airlines basically become. >> the overlap was incredible. i'm not trying to sale this deal
to anybody. the airlines, that was basically a root structure deal meaning you can stop competing if you emerge. this doesn't effect anybody. >> on broad band, especially with the new rules, it's the same 25 megabits there's some questions. let's just, i hope they're interested. if fios is successful in swing, it's successful, comcast, i would think needs to get this deal. there's so many ways. fios is traditional cable. >> they offer, they still have a big footprint. it needs to get bigger. if they cut rates, i'm sure they feel it could be triumphant. >> bob is going to cover abunch of them. bob. >> we started on the upside but it faded quickly which often
happens here. we have telecom utilities leading. i want to point out the big rally continuing over asia. here's what's important. we're at highs everywhere. the nasdaq of china at a historic high. shanghai at a high. things are flying now. over in europe a flat day despite continuing concerns over greece. the german government revised their growth outlook up. they're talking about bigger gpd growth. they raised it for 2016 as well. we're talking weeker euro oil prices helping boost exports and employment overall. let's talk housing and earnings.
d.r. horton saw a big surge in quarters. net orders up 33%. it's had a great year. it's up 12%. that's the problem you've got overall. by the way, mortgage applications up 5% week over week here. earnings were good. roofing was okay. insulation a lot better. that's a nice move up 5% there. the problem with the fracking slow down housing is showing up united rentals. also in home building they had a beat and lowered their four year revenue. elsewhere, i want to point out trucking is getting a lot better. did you see ryder? that stock has a nice boost today. finally, staple went out and
boosted their price targets on a whole bunch of oil companies and production companies. i would think this was a fabulous call two months ago. remember, these guys are up double digits so far in the year. a lot of people had the same idea already. david, back to you. >> thank you very much. coming back to a story we're going to follow for some time trying to make sense of, a good deal of reporting i've been able to accomplish over the last 24 hours which is what is going to happen here in perrigo's pursuit of mylan. perrigo came out and rejected the offer mylan made earlyierier in the month. that rejection, by the way, was kind and calm. it didn't throw a lot of rocks. it simply said hey, we think we're worth more and that's
important. it's important to measure a rejection because it gives you a sense to the willingness of a accompany to engage down the road. on that engagement what i can share with you at this point is the expectation among people familiar with the situation is mylan will be coming back with a firm offer. an offer under irish law that will include firm financing commitments which they are paying for and paying a lot for and firm commitments to move ahead, things like ticking fees and showing a real commitment to get this deal done. as for what the new price will be or a higher price for something they offer, unclear. mylan is far from done in pursuing perrigo and showing their significant focus on getting the deal done by firming up financing commitments it will be paying for. that is no small matter. now, back to tevis offer
yesterday invailed $82 a share. as i said a number of times yesterday in directing people to dutch law, there is a lot of question out there to the ability to complete a deal for mylan because of something called acall called a stifting. it's basically a foundation run by four trustees that has the right to essentially call the voting rights of mylan as much as 50% of those voting rights that will prevent anybody from being able to gather more than 50% of the votes. it is a somewhat vulnerable poison pill. that is an argument up for dispute, jen. in the last day you're talking with people who understand dutch law. i'm still getting different reads. one side as you might imagine the mylan side will probably
argue, take a look. if you're a european accompany and listed as a european accompany, there is a two year rule. yes, we can do this. after two years they have to redeem the voting rights. as a nasdaq voting accompany rebelieve our foundation can hold the rights if they call for them. as long as the threat continues to be in place meaning no time limit, they argue, in fact there will be a shorter time limit that the amp -- court will tell them to move it along. they're the ones to make a decision as to whether or not to actually call for those rights. final thought for me here on this on the particular issue is
mylan did the deal to invert with abbot. a new place of corporate inseparation. it turns the u.k. and then it looked all over the world and found the netherlands as the place it wanted to go in the corporate incorporation position. >> why would you not go to the netherlands if you weren't looking for the place to protect you the most? they did. they found it in the netherlands and people need to pay close attention here to see teva has a chance. there are different opinions on how long but that's certainly something for people to keep in mind. when it comes to mylan, there's no doubt about it. they said no before the offer came out on friday.
rob, their chairman who is described by many who likes to drop the f bomb every other word. no way he's going to say yes. they called the toilet paper the stock. i've heard it too. quotes adds well. wall street journal says that. >> here is their statement last week. >> that's where things stand. mylan getting more serious and real questions about that. >> right. that's an unbelievable summary. this happened to be a bad
stretch. >> i think it's a brilliant move. >> of course teva getting there may keep them from getting the vote. final point from me teva could have succeeded in buying mrk ymylan if they had pursued a few months ago. big mistake by teva. >> petrobras voting today on whether the release audible financials. chief international correspond nt is at petrobras'headquarterers. michelle. >> reporter: hey there, daiftd. when the sheet comes out tonight investors are looking at how big is the hole. it matters because they're the most indebted country in the entire world and the most major
leverage accompany in the world by a long shot. this is one of the biggest if not the biggest financial scandal to hit brazil in its history which is a high bar to jump over in brazil. even though the share's trade, the adr trade at the stock exchange, make no mistake, they're controlled by the brazilian government. they control more than half of the voting shares and use the accompany as an arm of government policy. all of that coming home in the last year because in march, one of the accompany's directors was arrested for bribery. in september he started to sing and he told investigators for nearly 10 years nearly every contract was padded by at least 3% and then the money in that padding was used for bribery, kick backs and funneled to the ruling part ruling pearls of ruling parties of brazil. there have been party members
and the president of the country at risk herself. she's not been connected to any of the fraud but the treasurer from her worker's party has been arrested and she was chairman of this accompany for much of the time when the fraud was allegedly occurring. she denies any knowledge of it. tonight once again we wait to see the numbers from the fourth quarter. remember, everybody else is reporting first quarter numbers now. they've been delayed to do accounting to figure out what's happened here and there's going to be a news conference to get right on what they're going to do going forward and to improve the corporate governments which is to be understated lacking. consider this one-third to your executive upon being arrested offered to give back himself $100 million. >> so glad you're there, michelle. we've mentioned it a couple of times. >> they're going to slow down

we've worked hard to honor both. bp has spent nearly 28 billion dollars so far to help the gulf economy and environment. and five years of research shows that the gulf is coming back faster than predicted. we've toughened safety standards too. including enhanced training... and 24/7 on shore monitoring of our wells drilling in the gulf. and everyone has the power to stop a job at any time if they consider it unsafe. what happened here five years ago changed us. i'm proud of the progress we've made both in the gulf and inside bp. let's take a look at your credit. >>i know i have a 786 fico score, thanks to all the tools

fractionally as well. some big moves today but a lot of earnings we've had already and that are di jesting. >> breaking economic data. >> reporter: sarah, existing home sales up 6.1% to a seasonal seasonally adjusted rate 5.19 million unit ins march. that's a huge beat. twice what the street was expecting sales 10.4% year after year. this was a high rate. these are seasonally adjusted numbers. if you look at the raw data from february to march, sales usually go up 25%. this year they went up 37%. sales up across all regions. the highest over the midwest. up over 10%. that, of course here's the headline, pushed prices way up. up 7.8% year over year the gains
were barely 4%. nothing for sale. inventory up 2% year over year. we're at a 4.6 month supply of homes for sale. healthy market is six month supply. the realtors say they would like to keep the sales pace at 5.2 million. that would be the best level for the year in nine years but they'll only be able to do that if they can get more inventory on the market. sellers not listing homes because they're concerned they can't find anything else to buy. they inched back in march. still not strong. realtors expecting if prices don't go much higher, the buyers won't come back. if we continue at this rate we're not going to see them in the market. >> breaking news on the housing.
a tale of two fast food stops this morning. former stock market star chipotle down. concerns that growth may be slowing for the mexican grill. mock mcdonald's training high. joining us now, nicole miller and restaurant on the analyst. >> good morning. >> this is one of the strongest results in the restaurant industry. exceptionalal exceptional is what they're calling it. it's clearly not high enough to meet expectations. >> today would be a great day to buy the stock here. we're not worried about the stock. it's the strongest management team. the culture is the best to transfer ability of the culture as they grow restaurants around the globe. >> i guess the concern is the
guidance. it begs the question are they going x growth? >> i think that investors at this point are showing they're scared of what they do know and not what they don't know. prices falling off, 6% price, comes likely do go down. there's still/lot after things they can do to in terms of catering and price on some of the proteins. >> just turning to mcdonald's, why are they trading so strongly when the sales down 3% globally on a bigger hit to profits for foreign exchange, why is mcdonald's such a firm companier today? >> this is why we eat careful around earnings. their trading more on sentiment than fundamentals. clearly, mcdonald's is trading up with the expectation it could
have been worse and it's not. >> nicole has steve easterbrook outlined a strategy. i see this news on day-to-day about menu changes and experience changes. do you have a firm turn around story in your head you could help articulate here. >> we're still living the results at this time. any menu or marketing change to get through the pipeline. whatever it is easterbrook wants to do is not showing up today. i think he's expressed to the franchise what he wants to do. in terms of the onlyist community, it need to be a more direct solid plan. >> they're quiet battered and this is expensive. >> i think that if the performance shows up they will follow suit.
that is what we think is the critical aspect of the mcdonald's turn around story is getting the franchises to buy in. hearing what it is they want is critical and paramount. >> just to underline it to bottom line it the of the two stocks chipotle and mcdonald's which is the better bet for the whole year? >> i think investors living in the large cap world look at chipotle. >> have a great day. joining us from piper jeffrey. >> while the dow is down coke shares are trading higher beating analyst estimates on the top and bottom line. the beat was driven by higher prices. coke has been raising prices charging more. that is helping sales and that is really the story of this quarter. i got a chance to talk to the cfo right after the result. she says we feel really good about the quarter referring to
those pricing. a few points here on the pricing that drug the better sales. she says that will moderate this year. in other words, don't expect that to last. that was a three point gain. another warning here on the temporary effect we saw this quarter on the cfo. there was six extra selling days during this quarter. that is why kathy and ceo have continued to emphasize this is a transition year for coke 2015. they talk a lot about this whand it refers to is billions in cost cuts productivity savings. that includes the lay offs we saw the first quarter. cfo says they're in early days of productivity improvement and finally, on this idea of currencies because coke gets most of its sales abroad they're feeling it 6% off of sales but she did tell me they're fully hedged on the euro till 2016. those swings don't hurt.
it's the emerging market currencies that's significantly impacting the bottom line. that's better than the multinational companies. coke still expects mid-to single digit growth this year. so the bottom line guys. this wasn't a game change or quarter. people are still not drinking soda like they're use to but there's improvement on the way coke is managing results and pricing and that's what investors are picking up on today, at least in terms of reaction to the quarter. >> i'm still shedding the routes. i think there's seven deals around the country to get rid of those. >> yeah, there's two efforts here. they're refranchising, they're expanding some of the agreements with bottlers and trying to cut cost. they're in the middle. it's part of the whole transition. they're in the middle of streamlining this. and also the zero basis. >> yeah, they're doing that as well which so many other of these consumer companies are
doing. >> they did it and the 3g guys do it every year. that sort of idea permeated. it's hard to do every year to say what are our real cost? >> if you do it every year you can't say you've had a transition year like coke can you? >> they're building a lot of expectations up for growth next year is what they're doing. by the way, we're going to talk to ceo and cfo live in atlanta on friday here on squawk on the street. >> iphones, samsung galaxies what about new gadgets like the apple watch? we're going to ask b broadcom broadcom ceo about that. squawk on the street will be right back. thank you for being a sailor, and my daddy. thank you mom, for protecting my future. thank you for being my hero and my dad. military families are thankful for many things. the legacy of usaa auto insurance could be one of them. our world-class service earned usaa the top spot in
we're losing bround on the dow. 38 points. the main lozser, boeing. as we've seen time and time again through the earning seasons as we are revenue. phil is live in chicago with the details on that. morning, phil. >> good morning. it's not just about the revenue not coming in as expected by wall street but also questions for cash flow. let's look at that time earning numbers.
coming in at a buck 97. 16 ahead of estimates. the revenue 21.2 billion. shy of expectation of $22.48 billion. when you look at the first quarter for boeing a couple of things to keep in mind. on the commercial side that's been driving the stock lately 184 plane deliveries which is an increase verses 161 in the first quarter last year. commercial plane division earnings up 8%. what are investors focussed on? a couple of issues. they revolve around the free cash flow down $186 million in the first quarter. negative free cash flow operating cash flow $88 million. compare that with 1.1 million for the first quarter of last year. operating margins a little smaller than last year at 9.6%. the conference call is going to beginning shortly.
the accompany reconfirmed guide ins in terms of revenue for the entire year and cash flow. they have at least $9 billion in cash flow. those questions are front and center when the conference call begins in 15 minutes. boeing feeling pressure this morning. >> simon said the bottom of the dor dow. shares are trading at levels we haven't seen since back in january 2011. the chip maker a 27% rise in first quarter earnings. high and smart phone and broad band access markets as some of the components. joining us the ceo of broadcom scott mcgregor. >> can you give us more to what drove results beyond the smart phone and broad band? go ahead. >> it was a good quarter.
besides smart phones we saw broad band access and in particular, our infrastructure business in switching was strong. strong performance across the businesses. >> we're also impressed with your guidance. the new samsung galaxy 6 was launched in april. >> it isn't just smart phones. it's across the rest of the space and the infrastructure side doing well across the world. >> you think it's the latest cycles? we know that the iphone 6 is having a strong cycle in terms of sales. a lot of hype and positive reviews on the galaxies. are they turning it up a notch when it comes to meeting consumer understands? >> they're doing a great job getting them to replace some of their existing phones. the combination of that is creating the demand and new excitement in the mark.
>> zotyou obviously comment on whether you're an apple supplier. your major supply of wifi components. >> there are a lot of different chips that go in a smart phone and we chose to focus on some rather than others. we were trying to do a broad swap across that. no money in the face bands. we focussed on wireless lan and blue tooth. >> it's the networking boxes as well that's a key business for you. i see you've booked yourself in four or five conferences over the next month. can you talk us through the new product in laymens terms. clearly, you believe you have a story to tell here. >> i think a lot of people focus
on the devices consumers see. it's easy to see how all those get connected. broadcom focuses on how those devices are connected. you think about your smart phone connected with blue tooth or wifi and the devices in your house, your pc set top box connected, cable modems. we make the technology and also the technology in the carrier side. the telephone or cable accompany, the equipment there and all of the backbone of the internet. broadcom does this and things that switch the traffic. something like 98% of all traffic goes across the chips. >> there's a lot of talk about m.m.a. with reports of intact. can you talk about how you see the industry evolving with these new technology? i know you're going hard after the internet of things. >> obviously, we can't comment on rumors.
i think what's interesting is we provide the connectivity side. you mention the internet side of things. that plays to our vengtstrength. it's wearables and the one thing in common with the internet devices is connectivity. >> which technology are you talking about the connected home what projects are you working on? >> we do all of those things. we've seen not only wearables, you think about watches, health and fitness, we really have a great place to play. you think about appliances in our home becoming smart and connected. your kitchen appliances preheat your oven on your way home. it's interesting because the appliances and devices also create data for power companies to manage their load. there's a lot of other ways to mono tiez that information and create more value for consumers.
our devices enable all the devices in the home and machines and stuff like that to be connected to the internet and people and create the data and new service. >> can you confirm your chip is the one in the new apple watch? >> we can't talk about specific customers but we are in a lot of the watches out there today and we think we have great products. >> can you tell us a bit about what you see going forward in terms of enterprise spending? >> enterprise spending looks to be fairly strong across the world. we seen a bit of a pause in the united states. some of the carriers reduced spending a little bit as they wait for mergers or other mma of their own industry to happen. we're seeing the rest of the world very strong in infrastructure and a lot of build out of cloud data centers. all of us love the high deaf video and that decree unitescreates the need
the record the servers to get to us. you love seeing your movie at night. the servers and at a at thatthe data centers, that's a growth opportunity for us. >> thanks very much for talking about some of the trends. broadcom ceo wouldn't give up any client names. there's a lot of speculation. >> comeing coming up, accused of making millions of dollars a day all from the comfort of his parent's house. we'll take you live to london for the latest next on cnbc.

welcome back everybody. earning beating the street on the top and bottom lines. the spring selling season got off to a strong start. year to date the stock up 8%. as you can see it's down 4.1% sitting at $27.39. simon, back to you. >> one of the big stories of the week iowa. they have found a lethal strain of bird flu in a flock of millions of hens at an egg laying facility. we're live at the very facility. morgan good morning. >> reporter: good morning, simon. this is the farm behind me. this is where the latest and largest strike of this influenza
has happened. this facility is under strict quarantine right now as the entire flock of 4 million egg laying hens is euthanized and is highly contagious. this process could take weeks if not longer. i need to know according to the u.s.d.a. this string of flu poses little threat to human health but that being said the cases are mounting. we've got some 6.5 million birds across the u.s. that have been if he canned by this and more than a dozen at state. the question now, what does this mean for the poultry intrus -- industry? even so industry consultant says it's too early to tell just how large the impact of this bird flu will be on the broader culture industry including eggs
and consumer prices. >> it's going to be what happens from this point forward and can we control the disease from spreading during the fly aways. >> reporter: so he and others say that the biggest risk moving forward is if this flu were to spread to broiler chickens. that's basically, the chickens raised for meat. that's a 9 billion bird per year market in the u.s. it's larger than turkey. if we see the flu spread to those crops, that could pressure exports because of the flu and it could also if we see supplies significantly decrease that could have ripple effects to the market. >> nonetheless morgan i wouldn't get too close, if i were you. >> reporter: i'm sorry. >> don't get too close to them. >> reporter: i can't get too close. they've got sheriffs and even
else here. this place is quarantined but i tell you, you can smell the smell of this facility for miles. >> all right. that sounds lovely. thank you very much. morgan on an egg farm for us. breaking news out of london. wilfred cross outside the house life for us. >> reporter: sarah, thank you very much indeed. that man is 36 and comes west of london. the breaking news is he has been granted bail about 10 mens ago but with very strict conditions attached and he will face a trial here in the u.k. on the 18th of august. that date is subject to change by a day or two. all of this of course relates to 22 counts of financial fraud and misconduct which were filed in the u.s. back in february
this year. it was made public yesterday after he was taken into custody. of those counts as you mentioned, at least one relates to his involvement with that flash crash in the united states back in 2010. that really of course what's been grabbing the headlines throughout the day. it's alleged he made some $40 million from these acts of wrong doing and that is why included in these strict bail conditions is him needing to paste 5 million pounds as bail. he's also not allowed to use the internet at all. he has to surrender his passport passport, stay at his home dress and not leave during midnight hours. its also asked his parents have to post 50,000 pounds and surrender their own possible. district judge was very clear on the severity of the charges and what would happen to him if he broke any of the terms of his bail. all of that breaking over the last 15 minutes. the trial happens in theon the 1th8th

back to squawk on the street. >> thank you sue. stocks in the meantime are losing early gains this morning. investors digesting a mixed batch from yahoo, coca-cola. joining us mark. i guess we're seeing a lot of bottom line beats. can you really get excite window the lack of revenue growth? >> hardly sarah. i think the market is conflicted with that. going into earning seasons, they're going to be down had4.7%. they have beaten on their earning side and it shows slight improvement. the disappointment comes in the form of less than half of all companies that have reported so far had beaten on the revenue side. you can only manufacture earnings so far before revenues begin the matter and at the
moment i think that's what's weighing on equity prices. >> the s&p 500 is flat. little direction. you have to go back to early march to see the highs. record high for the s&p, nasdaq above 5,000. are we going to get back there this year mark and if so what's going to take us back there if you're not impressed with earnings? >> i think we get back there and then some. we have to ultimately work through the period where we have economic data that's been quiet terrible on a comparative basis. some of that is unanimous. we haven't yet gotten data that's been clean which we're not going to get for several weeks more. when we start to see numbers for april that hopefully gdp is back on track. it should then be supportive and then stock prices can react positively and then react gain and climb upward.
between now and then thewe're probably going to stay locked in this channel for some time. >> what are we in the business cycle? >> believe it or not, we're five and three quarters of an economic expansion at this juncture. that's not all that a-typical post world war ii. i think it continues on for an extended period of time. it's primarily because we're neither growing too fast at the federal reserve has to step in and murder the economy nor are we growing too slow to suggest there's a remote possibility after a recession over the next foreseeable future. there's a consequence, kind of this environment that says this business cycle that we're in the midst of is likely to last longer than what is typical. >> just to combat where you started on the earnings you're not worried about the clear problems we have with the revenue for these companies.
>> well, don't forget a lot of it has to do with the dollar strength. the dollar was up 9% in the first quarter alone. it was up 25% from the end of june to last year. that violent move and its order of magnitude was problematic from u.s. multinationals. i doubt we're going to see a repeat of that projecture in the dollar. as we get through the weather induced problems for revenues that companies faced here domestic domestically, i think we'll see modest improvement. we're not expecting anything in particular robust but certainly something in the mid-didn'ts ought to be sufficient to substantiate. >> let's talk a little strategy when it talk comes to different intrus ri groups. health care and down assumer discretionary would appear to beneficiaries but they have been the best performers all year. >> they have been the best
performers. that's not a reason to abandon them. those are two of our picks. we look at the strength and consumer in terms of labor market sinment and household network at all all time high. we still like aspect for the down assumer kiss cession their sector recognizing high evaluations you want to be careful about. in addition we like the health care sector. certainly, medical device managed care even farma. in addition to that we like the sector particularly the money center banks that continue to be weighed on by the net interest margin. at the same time they're activity is bailing them out. >> very quickly, how should investors think about buy backs now? i think that's a big part of what's going on. if that continues do you want to invest in sectors where you're seeing that? >> certainly, america's cash rich and there's a consequence
we're going to see more of that. we're seeing more activity and di dend increases. that's the benefit of seeing companies, corporate health. we'll look for the smart program of a share of buy backs. that's corporate america's ability to buy high and sell low. >> yep, we're seeing it all over the place. thank you for joining us with the dow down. >> the growth appearing to slow down in the first quarter just like last year and 2013. the recurring q1 slum may not be a coincidence. in a report we are joined with a look a detailed look at the governments reporting gdp data. >> simon, the latest tracking showing a quarter on tap as low as 1%. will it be a coincidence? not according to a detailed look
at gross domestic product which is the most followed measure of wealth in this country. we found average first quarter gdp is 1.87%. six of the ten worst quarters over the 30 year period since 1985 were first quarters. and since 2010 first quarters look like another economy all together averaging 0.2%. finally, wall street doesn't seem able to compensate for it. it's been overestimated by wall street 80% of the time. take a look here. very simply we see we get some of it back. here you can see first kwurtquarter be sush substantially weaker. economist using tools found these findings robust. one other thing we want to show you is expansions and
recessions, what we find is the orange bar is overall. you can see it's overall weaker. just look at the recessions. q1 is the weakest. of your economic analysis they decline the comment. the potential for the q1 effect is significant. officials are considered and they might give pause. investors are faced with what your last guest was talking about with whether the economy was weak in the first kwauter and should you be banking on a second quarter rebound, sarah. >> steve, isn't it is brutal winters we have had? >> that would be true over the last five years. some officials are aware of it over the last five years. the real finding here is it goes back over 30 years, sarah and if we take out the last five years and look at 2010, q1 by the
weather should be corrected over time. the data should correct itself over a long period of time. if it doesn't, the government should go back into it and work on what the problem is and correct it. >> steve, don't they seasonally adjust? >> they do. >> if they over adjusted, they would be accused of cooking the books. >> the idea of seasonal adjustment is if something happens on a regular basis, it should be smoothed out. for example, the christmas spending is the best example of that. by the way, the problem in q1 is not from the consumer it's not a matter of spending a lot in december and not if january and february, it's other parts of the economy that seem to show it. the seasonal adjustment should pick this up and if the data were seasonably adjusted correctly, you would not have this big difference. >> very interesting that you notice that, steve, we'll see

>> i think you need to focus on both things. you referenced the call last night. when the accompany recorded results the stock traded lower and once they started to talk about yahoo japan then the stocks seemed to gain lift. right now people aren't sure where yahoo's going. that's been a theme for the last couple of years. it's just that back a couple of years ago up until last year it was really about alibaba. >> she continues to dangle this as she did with the alibaba. can she win in search ultimately? i know she's done the deal with microsoft. that's the bigger deal isn't it. >> i agree with that actually. we have an opinion on the stock. really the thinking is that
the operations are still a big question mark. look at display advertising pricing down double digits four straight quarters. yahoo needs to fix that for significant appreciation in the stock at this point. >> scott, some of your peers and those investors who choose to own the stock will point out if you back out the alibaba stake, you're still getting the rump if you will the core business for free as an argue of value. do you agree with that? >> david, we don't agree with that. if you look at just putting together the stakes and those two businesses applying a discount we come to something closer to $40 billion or maybe $35 a share. we actually value the business a little bit more significantly
than others but conversely, we think those nonoperating stakes are worth less than what other people think because there's a control issue and there are uncertainties there. so we just right now in yahoo that others see. and it does also appear to us like news flow could be turning against the company. >> right. >> hey, scott, am i right in saying that marissa mayer, that if she stays another 18 months she collects $250 million in share options? and do you think she would stay past that point shall. >> i don't know the specifics on what the compensation details for marissa mayer would be over the next couple of years. i think she's very much incentivized to get the stock higher and up until the alibaba ipo or so the stock basically ran under her stewardship from let's say 15 to $45. it tripled in price. now it's traded sideways and i think there's are a lack of catalysts and people are
wondering what's going to happen next. the fundamentals of the business notwithstanding talk about mobiles, mavens this is a no-growth company and i don't think people see that changing any time soon. stocks are now higher across the board. financials in the lead. up next how bill nye the science guy is trying to get kids into coding and robotics and what he thinks about silicon valley's gender gap.
. silvan learning taking on a new educational challenge, teaching children robotics and computer coding. the company has the backing of bill nye, the science guy, who came to post 9 and explained why when he stopped by. have a listen. >> sylvan learning has an after school program, a weekend program called the edge we're trying to give you an edge. we want to get people especially before they're 10 years old, before they're 12 years old. interested in science and math
