6:04 am
the "walking dead" that happened when the play just started. a big piece in "the new york times" because that's starting i think on the 23rd or so. >> the prequel? >> the prequel, yeah. which is set in a gritty l.a. where life is getting a little more chaotic. where you're just starting to see people turn into -- are you a "walking" fan? >> not really. >> 29 million were. >> there's a lot of people in this country who don't. >> it's a phenomenon. more people watch -- there are more people watching the show talking about that show than watching -- >> and joe appeared on that show talking about that show. >> i'd like to be on it again. hint. >> you would never do that. >> people at home are going when are we going to hear about china? the latest reading on china factory activity they have
6:05 am
their own pmi over there. for a fifth straight month, it's now at its lowest reading since november of 2011. there are things happening in china. obviously, i saw earlier today, there's the chinese markets. it's not good for shanghai down another 40. >> that's a calm day. >> that is a calm day. >> down 1% 2%. >> you keep using 1% and sooner or later -- >> 1% an hour. >> oil, at 46. you look at commodities, you look at what's. happening, it's got to have something to do with china. got to have something to do with china. 46. where is that -- at 46 you're guaranteeding 70% bit end of the year. >> who's saying that? >> everybody. the vast majority. >> so many people other oil
6:06 am
analysts are talking about, oh, yeah, by the end of the year it will probably be back to 70. >> on another note did you see what is. happening in venezuela over the weekend. because they need money so badly, the government it is horrific, the video that's being leaked out of there. people, i mean riots for food. oh, it's just so sad to watch. >> at least it's not a flush place. people pawning some of their rolex rolexes. they have 12 or 13. >> all up and down their arm. >> more rolexes than wives. the greek stock market is now open for business after a five-week closure, greek stocks began trading again. the index quickly fell 23% led by a sharp decline in banking stocks alpha bank the national bank of greece all taking a 30% hit. you can actively trade. it's easier if you're a foreigner. if you're a local, you can't
6:07 am
move money across the border so you're limited in your ability. it could have been even worse. there could have been more liquidity allowed. meantime president obama expected to unveil new rules for carbon emissions. the white house's clear power plan will increase the required cuts from emissions in the power sector establishing the first ever national standards to lilt carbon pollution from power plants. the plan is looking to reduce emissions from 32% to 2005 levels by 2030. it will set up a battle with the coal industry. the national monument association saying it will seek to belong the plan in federal court. >> all right -- >> we're just moving on? because when i read that story over the weekend, the first thing that came in my head was joe. >> i know. >> literally. i saw something this morning, and it's a scattered ram of the cost of unit of power around the world. up here you've got, it goes like
6:08 am
this denmark, germany, because it's so expensive. and because of the focus on it. and we're down here. and it says the president will probably now finally get his wish and get us up here. >> selling one of our most competitive positions in the world. >> carbon emissions is an oxymoron. everything that we know is carbon-based. they don't say co2 which is one of the most ubiquitous elements or compounds on the planet. it's essential to plant life and photo synthesis. we're talking .04 emissions. so i guess they didn't dictate this is a pollutant. it's a new definition for pollutant, right? if you're going to call carbon
6:09 am
dioxide -- >> there there are a number of states lining. you. >> and it will be a different president some day. 32% is going to be very very expensive. it's going to cost a lot of jobs. and the benefits are that if you believe we're going to have a 3.6 increase based on co2 level where is we are, we haven't seen really any evidence that that's going to happen. but if you believe it all of these guys if we ever -- you know, come back on some of the dogma and pull back on it they're all going to be able to say, hey i was just listening to scientists. if you're obama and you listen to scientists, this is something that you'd do. >> i guess. it's so much for our purposes investing in coal stock at this point, right? already beaten down pretty well. >> isn't that going to be -- it's a coal company that -- >> the bankruptcy -- yeah this government has picked winners and losers and they have
6:10 am
decided that coal is the loser. >> you know the reason they call it it carbon in co2, co2 is an odorless colorless gas. carbon sounds like a ship doesn't it you have visions of this. they show this they show city factories. >> that's mainstream media. >> i don't want to get into any of this. listen, i don't argue with it not anymore. no i do not argue. i don't argue with it. if you won't search a climate policy if you don't want to be part of it -- >> are you talking about the guy -- >> i'm talking about tom cruise even he's leaving the church. >> you pointed to records. >> you totally baited me on this. i didn't want to talk about this. you totally baited me. >> i didn't -- i'm trying to move on. >> i know i swear, though i did read the story. i saw the headline. the first thing that popped in
6:11 am
my mind was you. >> let me know when you see the slightest crack in miami real estate or new york real estate. >> anything on the coast? >> anything that actually shows market pressure on any of those prices that indicates that there is a coming tidal waves that going bury that. let me know. the futures are still flat the s&p would be open by 2, the dow owns will open by 2. nasdaq, 2. the german dax and others. we'll show you what happened in asia overnight. japan was flat. hang seng down nearly 1%. shanghai down 1%. ten-year yield, 2.198. still wait for the rising interest rates. the euro costs 1.09.
6:12 am
as for the price of gold this morning, it is lower again, by -- oh look to the right of that chart. >> gold's gotten smoked. >> hammered. hammered. >> oh yeah commodities just getting pummeled. joe. as we mentioned a big week of data and earnings on top as wall street gets set to kick off a new month of trading. should investors get ready for a quiet august or a volatile one. head of investment strategies at pro strategies. do et cetera 00 of you have one determining is it st. the fed? is it continued earnings? is it china? what is it? >> certainly from an interest rate perspective it will be the fed and the jobs report on friday. >> that's interesting but what
6:13 am
about for the stock market? >> i would strongly disagree with that just because waiting for the fed and the bond market is a risky thing to do. we've had a routing of the bond market in q2 and interest rates actually receded a bit. typically, when the fed raises rates sometimes the back end comes down. i don't know if that will happen this time. >> what do you mean we had a rout in the bond market? >> we had interest rate goes up 75 basis points on the ten-year. as expectations for the fed's raising of interest rates, fed futures came down. >> where did we see 75 basis points? >> on ten-year in q2. we had rates go up. >> a tantrum? >> no the exemption is normal interesting -- >> 2 -- >> 2.20. we were at 2.45 or so at the highest levels of q2. my observation is simply that if
6:14 am
you wait for the fed to raise rates you can lose money in a bond market. >> if that's a rout -- >> rout in a latest sort of range-bond moves not a -- >> well i mean we're stitt waiting for -- that just says you're kidding we're till at 2.19. i don't think of that as backing up quickly. we were supposed to be at 3% three years. >> if you wait for the fed, if you wait for the fed, you could lose 5% or 10% in your bond portfolio if we're willing to call that a rout these days. >> what's affecting the stock market? >> the biggest risk in the stock market is at a sector basis. the sector is at a risk obviously, energy and sectors like utilities. the rest of the stock market is probably going to do okay. >> unless you think that the fed is not going to raise rates anytime soon and that utilities, as rates stay low are going to be a winner.
6:15 am
right? i mean utilities -- if rate stay lower utilities and other sectors like that are going to go up. >> i think it goes back to the same logic. you know the natural rate of the ten-year bond is somewhere around 4%. 2% inflation, plus 2% real return. and consensus expectations for next year are for 2% inflation. so simply that sort of normalization puts pressure on things like rates and utilities. again, even without the fed starting to move. >> all right. then we're stuck micro analyzing? >> for the next two months it will be the jobs report. >> this is just get it out of the way so we stop talking about. >> i don't think the bar is all that high for her to raise it. is sounds like september is still out in play despite the softer than expected eci we got on friday.
6:16 am
i don't think that's necessarily a prerequisite for them to begin to hike rates. it would certainly support the idea if we got a stronger report on friday. of course, we didn't. right now, it's a game of data dependentent. dependent. >> what are you guys at halftime saying about september? >> i think they're going to push for -- >> no no that's not what they're saying. i don't want them to say it. >> look at jeffrey dunlap he's very well respected in the market. he says they're not going to raise, nor does he think they should. >> i know. >> he uses the same laws analogy, and he said they should be cutting rates. >> there are other people saying at 5.3%.
6:17 am
we've got all the indications -- we're still in crisis mode qe crisis mode the economy is way behind. i don't know who is right on that. do you go on that? >> i don't know. stan's made a lot of money, too. >> he's given away more than dunlap's made right? >> yeah. >> don't you think? >> are we ready to go? is that you? >> i'm sorry, that's rob cantino, he's never here at this time. >> august not good. down 2.5%. same drill this time around? >> i don't think we're going to have huge amounts of flows. so i don't think there's going to be a lot of news flow. >> it could be china flow right? that seems to be one of the
6:18 am
biggest drivers right now. >> but i think in the short term -- and we've had slightly bearish flows in tellers of folks taking bets against the markets. and actually a little bullish in commodities. i think in the short term no reason to take a bid on emerging markets right now. one, credit spreads boast investment rate and high yields much higher than last year. a little bit of an opportunity. and european stocks. folks who say there's a 20% or 30% valuation account. the price to book is 40% to 50% off the u.s. level of so may be a little time to step in. >> just for the number on friday -- you're an economist? >> yes. like 2.05 on payrolls. and another decline, 5.2%. i think that's consistent with the idea of some further progress in the labor market that the fed is looking to keep september in play.
6:19 am
>> all right. so we go over 200 again. but we've had a strange over 200. we're also talking about it, we've got to go. all right. kevin, thank you. thank you. okay china freezing a trading of the hedge fund giant citadel. younis eun has more of this developing story. eunice. >> citadel has confirmed that you it's trading by the regulators into what it calls suspected trading irregularities. citadel account is one of more than 30 that have been restraighted. and citadel is though the only foreign financial situation that's been caught up in this probe. so far citadel, as well as the regulator have refrained from saying what the actual issue
6:20 am
issue is that caused a suspension. the backdrop of course is that the government here has been pushing ahead with a very aggressive campaign to rye to root out what it calls illegal short-sellers or those who have been betting against the market. this is of course since the market has been following since mid-june. i spoke to a citadel pr person who was quick to point out that the trading account is one of many that they have here. he said that the others are operating just normally. he also said this san account at the brokerage firm and not at the hedge fund and it is not client money. he also was quick to point out that the company is working very closely with the regulators and that they're very optimistic that it's going to end up in their favor. so at this stage, though we don't know how this is all going to play out. but a lot of foreign investors that i've been talking to say it's going to have to be worked not a very delicate manner.
6:21 am
and the reason for that there have been so many foreign investors that have pulled the money out of the market. many of them have been put off by the heavy-handed way that the market has handled the slide. there's concern that the way the citadel case is handled could actually further dent china's standing in the snashgtinternational markets. >> absolutely eunice. thank you. leader of the pack donald trump topping the polls and will be front and center on a thursday debate. but another candidate may barely make the prime time stage. new jersey governor christie talking to john harwick next on "squawk box." here's a look back at this date in history.
6:22 am
6:23 am
6:24 am
we're watching shares of retailers of sears this morning. the company expects its first profit in three years for the second quarter largely from the sale of real estate. sears also says its financial position has improved although its most recent sales numbers continue to show decline. >> the latest nbc/"wall street
6:25 am
journal" report has trump sumping in the polls. trump has a 19% followed by scott walker and florida governor jeb bush. they will be sharing the stage with seven other candidates on thursday's debate including new jersey's governor chris christie and john harwood recently sat down with the governor and joins us from washington. i'm trying to think about all the stuff that you talk about, john, we'll let you get to christie in a second. i liked your answer to the buy that said maybe trump's followers end up with bernie sanders. what are the chances of that? you said zero. that person fundamentally doesn't understand the dynamic of this race. disenfranchised and disillusioned and anti-political fast will would way understand the trump followers versus bernie sanders. that's just the stupidest thing i've heard, right? >> well we'll see how that
6:26 am
happen. >> but trump's not a socialist. these are part of the political press that has no clue as to what's causing some of these things to happen i think, john. >> well that may be. but the story of the day is chris christie who i sat down in key new hampshire. this is not the way that chris christie thought he was going to be in this race. he once was seen as a potential front-runner. now he's in back of the pack. he said he's confident. going to make that first debate looking for slow steady progress. >> new jersey is three arts in a cloud of dust. new jersey has grinded it out every day in diners like this. >> so you know that this diner was manufactured in new jersey? >> yes, i just heard it from the owner. >> well i just looked on that table juke box over there. there's not one single springsteen song in that jux jukebox. >> well, that is an out rage. >> what is going on with your party right now?
6:27 am
it's a weird party right now? >> it is. are you telling me it wasn't as weird when michele bachmann was winning nationally. this happens. >> are you going to be in the first debate. >> yes, sir. >> not worried about falling off the cutoff? >> not worried at all. >> how do you see the race as being the most specific guy in the race? >> donald's telling his version of the truth. >> only the loudest voice gets heard or the most outrageous voice gets heard. >> that's probably the fault of candidate saying those things. that's partly the fault of the media. some people are feeling the pressure to try to get on the news. that's why idea is the most important thing in this john not whether you're getting attention at one particular time. in terms of when the race is the race became different when jeb bush got into it. a son and brother of two former presidents gets into a race well he becomes a establishment front-runner immediately. so it say different race that i
6:28 am
may have envisioned a while ago when he wasn't in the race. >> new jersey is not happy with you. you're just playing a weak hand as a governor. >> you know i've governed in a deeply blue state vetoed tax increases. cut the budget $2.5 million than it was. >> haven't you had slower job growth than other states? >> of course, we have because we have higher taxes than anybody else. the certain things you can do and can't do because you're not a dictator. >> for 30 years wages have not gone up. hillary clinton says change capital gain taxes to push investment to the future. is he right? >> no she's wrong. what she's doing is just to mask a tax increase. mrs. clinton does not know what she's talking about. proposaling to create jobs paid sick leave and raise the minimum wage. raising the minimum wage doesn't move anybody in the middle
6:29 am
class. >> are you against raising the minimum wage? >> i'm against the $15 minimum wage. >> are you against 10. >> we'd have to talk about it. but 15? it's going to destroy jobs. when you look at the changes we've made in in which and 192,000 families that had jobs and don't have them i don't think that's significant. >> you're not running on a new jersey miracle? >> no there's no miracles. new jersey is three yards and a cloud of dust. miracles are from god, john. it's progress on behalf of the people i work for. >> governor thanks for being with us. >> thanks john. as for those specific ideas, chris christie has talked about raising the retirement age, eliminating social security benefits for people retirees who have more than $200,000 of annual income. and on tax reform cutting the top rate to 28%. that was the reagan rate after tax reform in 1996. to do that it's going to get
6:30 am
rid of tons of deductions including deductions for state income tax which is something much valued in the state of new jersey guys. >> if you talk to him long enough john i see how skilled he is. i think you might end up being a christie supporter if you were to have dessert at breakfast you might end up -- >> he's very very skilled. the individual conversation the town meeting i was at before very very good. >> amazing. and also give him some credit when he decides to say something really controversial, it's about teachers unions. >> uh-huh. >> and it's in the journal today, the journal responded to what he said. now, that's a way of just being really plain spoken. you're going to get a lot of flak from certain special interests about saying that. but it's not going to rub an entire group of people -- except the teachers union.
6:31 am
i think a lot of teachers themselves have a problem with the way they're represented by the teachers union. which has been the biggest hindrance. i think jake tapper asked him who do we need to slap around -- >> punch in the face. >> -- punch in the face. >> yeah who do we need to punch in the face as if the bureaucrats are holding back on something that would help our education, that we know is holding back. it was such a great answer. you didn't talk about biden. see, i don't know if people want to talk about the idea that it's not sort of ordained that hillary clinton is the candidate. >> i don't think it's likely that joe biden is going to get in the race. this is a process of due diligence that his staff is going through, preserving his options if he wants to take them. i don't expect that to happen. >> i would be urging him if i was a democrat. don't you think -- >> some democrats are. >> do you think things are going to start getting better with e-mails and benghazi or anything
6:32 am
else, her political skills on the stump? at this point, just being a woman, where democrats want to elect a woman, maybe that's not enough some day. maybe you're going to have to -- i don't know that could get old. >> well it's not just being a woman. she is a very experienced public official who's got a pretty good brand. the clinton brand is pretty powerful in american politics. she is a mainstream democrat. i think there's no question if you look at the polling today, that she is somebody who's going to be a very competitive general election candidate. yes, she has flaws. republicans are picking at them. democrats are anxious about them, those flaws. but i don't see anything that's likely to displace her now. >> hey john -- >> bernie sanders or martin o'malley. >> did you see the camille stuff on hillary clinton. 50 negative rating. why would we want to elect
6:33 am
someone who is so divisive again, another four eight years of somebody who already at 50% has a very negative opinion of? why go that way? >> well look in the political system that we now, any recognized leader of a political party is going to be divisive. you don't stay -- there was a time where people said barack obama was a rise above kind of candidate who was not disliked by republicans. how long did that last? it is in the nature of partisan politics that you're going to repel a large chunk of the country. she does that already, because she's already well-known. her husband does that when he was president, even though he was broadly popular for most of his presidency. and, so i don't see that as necessarily dispositive. >> i can't believe that pigs are going to fly -- i've seen it. >> it came out of your mouth.
6:34 am
>> she says a lot of interesting things. >> thanks john. >> you didn't read it? >> no just the headline. >> you should. and she says some other stuff there but she's not afraid to just -- >> just do it. >> yeah. coming up -- a recall from kraft, plus an update on the greek stock market that just reopened after a five-week closure. and as we head to break, a look at last week's winners and losers. you're watching cnbc business worldwide.

welcome back. u.s. equity futures at this hour. as you can see, flat across the board. greek stock market though has reopened for the first time in five weeks. right now, down only 17%. had been down as much as 20%. there's still restricted trading if you're local. if you're national buyer or seller, you can move money across the border. >> a rolling bull market. 17% after being close to that line. >> rememberer the locals can't do as much as they would like. if you had full-on liquidity, i think it would be low. >> if you had exited and devalued would be 70%. >> oh for sure. >> 17% versus 70. we're not updating every -- >> that's true. >> there's still stuff going on aren't they arguing? >> they're having meetings about
6:39 am
it. >> they're in the same place. >> we'll see. >> all right. >> i'm not confident. they're in a different place now. >> the suitcase is in the green room. i saw it. >> come on. >> today? >> no you have to bring your physical notes, you have to take your physical notes. >> it's like a massive of suitcase for the notes. >> kraft voluntarily ruling 37,000 cases of kraft singles. a possible choking hazard. not from the cheese itself but from the wrapping of the individual slices. the company says part of the wrapper could remain attached to the slice after it's removed. the recall involves certain three and four-pound packages of kraft singles, white and yellow american pasteurized cheese. you're intentionally going to take one of these slices and not fully unwrap it like grilled cheese -- >> i think you notice it's still
6:40 am
stuck on. >> don't you notice it when you're -- >> eating it right. >> that was too much. >> they do make them where the individual thing, you just peel them off. there's no paper or anything in between. >> i like the paper. coming up new data showing more sluggishness in chinese manufacturing so should investors expect it to get worse before it gets better? "squawk box" returns in just a moment.

6:43 am
chinese stock suffering their worst month in two years. joining from us hong kong toway on the market the vice chairman of asia pacific at jpmorgan
6:44 am
chase. great to have you here. the commodities markets are signaling there's a big slowdown in china. how bad is it? >> indeed. you know we have had a slowdown in china's economy in the last several quarters. today's data actually point to more disappointment especially in the manufacturing sector which is now affecting commodities and other industrial sectors. as we know in the last several quarters the slowdown in china's economy has been really seeing variable opposites in the manufacturing industry. because in the manufacturing sector they have a lot of companies that are heavily in debt. they have a lot of people and they also have inefficiency. so therefore, with the slowdown in the economy, we're seeing really a magnified impact on those companies that are overly leveraged. so today's pmi number actually quite disappointing. couple that with the financial sector we notice that market is
6:45 am
down again 10% in the last week. so there are some concerns clearly about the overall health of the economy. however, i think we are going to have more stimulus coming from the central government in the coming weeks and comes month. >> yeah that's the chinese way, right? to always rely on some kind of government enter next.intervention. when i look at what they've done with the stock market in the last month, as an outside investor, i wonder why i'd put money there. the rules change. they decided that something that used to be okay isn't okay anymore. from the outside it looks incredibly confusing and unpredictable. >> well, the chinese market has been a very young market. it's only been 25 years so it is an immature emerging market. it's also policy-driven. we all know that china's central government didn't weigh quite heavily during the selloff between june 12th and basically to today. i think once the month
6:46 am
stabilizes the policy from the central government will be a bit muted. we have had a visible hand in the central government in the stock market. they're supporting the market because they want to stabilize consumer sentiment, as well as investor sentiment. sometime, i hope in the second half of the year once the market performers stabilize, maybe the central government will be much more hands off. >> jing a quick question when you talk about stimulus that you expect, people that i've been speaking to are hopeful that the pboc is going to cut interest rates. is that the kind of move you see coming? >> clearly, we will have more in the form of rate cuts and reduction in the payment ratio, but just said there's announcement in the fiscal scene as well.
6:47 am
especially the very antiquated piping system underground. as we know, china spends a lot of instructure aboveground. airports and high-speed rail et cetera. now, they say we're going to rebuild china's underground parking system. so there will be more money coming. this is just one small example. we will have clearly more rate cuts. more reduction for the banks. therefore, more liquidity will go into the economy but also more fiscal spending. the central government has a lot of fire power behind it. and they're also trying to reduce local government debt so that local government can actually spend the infrastructure. >> is it going to be work, are you adjusting your gdp in china -- we know there's confusion on whether the numbers they give us are actually correct or not or are you raising your expectations based
6:48 am

7:17 am
is becoming a bigger and bicker problem for traditional media. you think about your mobile device. the iphone is sitting between the two of you. there are no media companies. so despite the fact that mobile is beating the world every single day if terms of our time and attention, big media, nowhere in terms of mobile penetration in temps of the time spent. then think about the bundle. every day, you are meeting more and more people giving on the bundle. is it a huge number? no a vast majority of people in five years, where is that number going? it seems like we are dropping. >> when bob eiger was here the other day, he said it was inevitable. espn comes, you purchase it separately. will that be the pivotal moment. now can you monetize your viewers in a real way you can't now? >> i suspect bob eiger won't go to that company. >> i think it's scary.
7:18 am
disney would be the last company i would expect to really go over the top. there is so much at risk. think about six to $7 a month for disney's espn new yorker. forget about the other channels. >> disney gets paid $6 to $7 a month for viewers? >> i subscribe, you pay $6 to $7 a month. few are going direct to consumer. look, for hbo, which has always been allah carte it's been easier. they've never had the issue of the benefits of bundleing. hbo had to go direct. win your money. they still have to do that in over the top world. think about the bundle. espn's never competed directly for your dollars or tried to figure out how many people would actually subscribe just to espn.

bob eiger, does anyone on disney want to take that bet? our risk is i don't think unbundling is good for any of these companies? >> why would he mention it? >> maybe you are forced to at some point. >> people are increasingly giving up on the bundle. you look at showtime is going over the top now. hbo is now over the top. netflix is growing like a weed. remember netflix is not just trying to replace and beat hbo. netflix is adding content on discovery and one of the most popular shows was a documentary called chefs table. >> this is awesome. by the way. >> if you see, let's take that show. not expensive as you saw. >> highly produced. works all around the globe time and attention moving away from linear ad supported tv. i think what will be interesting. as we hear this plethora of

7:22 am
down. that's largely due to the fact advertising continues to under perform. i think it will be interesting to see how executives talk about and try to tell investor, it's not a problem. a lot of these companies are buying back tear stock, thinking the stock is keep. i know you think i have a come is buying back stocks for years now. is it the regular decision? should they actually be paying dividends? i think that's a fundamental question the whole sector has to deal with. is buying back your stock the right decision when the decision is changing as much as it is right now. >> i think you will wish you hasn't gotten out. i think hbo. i can't imagine and obviously i have enough money. i can't imagine. oh i don't pay for hbo. you have a tv you have cable. you don't pay for for it.

7:35 am
tech will probably be down in back to school sales. if you bought all the exact same things to go back to him 62 you still pay 3% less. sales down 3%. you have to overcome. my guess is we will have a positive year. consumers are paying less. wages are going up for the first time forever. that consumer isn't that strong. it's better year over year. i think we will see them spend because generally that consumer will spend when they can spend. i think despite the fact tech will be low and apparel inflation is deflating not inflating. >> it speaks to the apparel
7:36 am
stock, some of the problems they've had as people sort of shift not only what they're buying but how they're buying it. >> that happens a lot. if you look at chinos pants that anybody would wear from 2000 to now the consumer is down 40% over a 14-year period. that trend has been going on and will continue to go on unless something changes. will see this 2, 3% deflation in the product. >> people are wearing more at leisure they say you buy a pair of under armor warm-up pants instead of the jeans or the khakis or whatever else. is that right? >> that is true. for this years ago devon imnim is actually back. jogger pants are selling, the bohemian stuff is in. we will see only pick up in the fashion.
7:37 am
it will not change the fact the best growth is is the nike type product. >> inflation can only go so far. at some point you suck all the keep manufacturing you can out of the world, no? >> that's easy for you to say. in the 21 years i was running retail. we saw 13 years of deflation and since 2000 to now we have seen deflation virtually every year since 2000 in apparel consumer type product him can it go on orever? >> no. at some point in time wage increase et cetera have to nick kick in. commodity prices haven't done anything. the replacement for things man made keeps the prices down we so far haven't seen a bottom. >> i think after school gap, old five. that company has had all sorts
7:38 am

xaj rakes they are down year over year. >> you don't feel like the coach is on the comeback trail the same time kors is defining it a bit? >> every time you read a study the consumer says that about 80% rate, i didn't know they had something few. so until they convince the consumer that buys that product that something is new, it's worth going to see, they're going to have a struggle. the big struggle they got is figuring out what to do with the outlet business which is what i think destroyed it to start with. >> they were overexposed. >> they haven't fixed out to fix that yet. >> they're one of the retailers that had a separate proj product line. >> they're not one of the few. they're one of several. they do that too. ralph lauren does that. >> you got a discounts on the main product line. >> the off price was you will get a good deal. now, 80% of what you buy in the

8:07 am
chief investment strategist. are you scared? whipping out here? >> the sweat is drinking down. i don't think it's about being scared. so look i don't pay as much attention to seasonally. there are a couple things investors should take note of. >> if you look at high yield you see a persistent high yield spread. it's something volatility. every indicator of growth is pointed at a slow down. not a collapse, a slow down. if you look at history, we're the two big drivers with expectation growth. until the very least, to it does not seem right. >> how much of all of the
8:08 am
reduced volatility due to yellen and that might slowly be getting taken away too, so maybe we see a return of volatility. that's one of the reasons there hasn't been as much. >> if you think of the last five years, you have an environment, bad news is good news the market will rally, the expectation is you will get more liquidity. maybe it will be the december hike, not a september hike. the reality is at some point in the next six to nine months we are going to start to see that accommodation be removed. in the absence of that is monetary possibility volatility does the same thing. >> some of the comments after a while the low volatility environment, you see momentum become more important.
8:09 am
is that your point? therefore, if momentum dries up you can't count on it. >> the point is if you think of momentum and quality value, these are all factors on the mark. they work differently at different times. momentum is generally the most effective in the environment. we've had low volatility. it's stable volatility. if we start to see volatility you put it. it comes closer to normal. momentum may not be suspected in that market. quality becomes more engtive. >> there has been a good debate whether value will cam back in to vote. it plays on the point you are talking about. do you think it is after being in the weeds. >> if we do see a better economy
8:10 am
generally value picks up relative to growth in that environment. so, yes, i do think value will be better going into the second half of the year. >> so the momentum etf is up 9%. what's the sticker. >> ntum. >> momo would be better. exactly. >> mtum. >> all right. so globally we've seen estimates as far as growth come down. what do you attribute debt? it would seem sooner tan later it's reflective in commodity prices. you would think the big tax break we are getting is $46 oil. you would think that would be stimulative. once the costs are factored in. it should end up being positive for global growth. >> it should be over the lower term.
8:11 am
what you see, one it's not just about energy. there is a general flow in china. it's brazil other emerging markets. the other thing that's happened is the u.s. consumer has not responded to script. as you point out, typically, you see lower oil prices. what's happening on the first six months of the year in addition to wages fought accelerating in the past savings rates have gone up. consumers have saved that windfall. they have not spent it. you have the negative impact of energy companies. you haven't yet got an tail wind from higher consumption. >> are you raise cash no new investment? you don't sounds like you will miss anything if you step aside here? >> i think there will be a better market. we're not looking if you look at tightening generally you get a
8:12 am
five to 10% direction on growth that seems right. >> not going anywhere. >> at least in the u.s. >> i was back at apple, too, that's the big momo stuff, 691 billion mark cap. >> biotech the last few weeks. >> i love it. >> apple is getting into the dow. >> $780 billion. a slam dunk. >> icon everybody. >> coming up next, puerto rico defaulting on payments over the weekend. is a restructuring next for the commonwealth? the latest on the situation there. next. a live report. home prices softening.

puerto rico defaulted. the commonwealth to start a restructuring of the debt pile. kate kelly is in san juan with more. kate. >> reporter: good morning, michelle, a government official here in san juan said friday that the deposit would not be able to make payment on a $58 million debt service payment in an entity he called the public finance corporation. we are awaiting confirmation that has not been made.
8:21 am
they have a grace period in order to do that. the wide expectation is they will be in default. sa far, we are seeing a general bond, tied the puerto rico debt if 2035. they were off at last check. the other bonds including the ones that didn't pay less liquid. we haven't seen that quite yet. now the san juan daily star language paper reporting that the government the negotiating for yet another short-term loan. in this case 400 million to help it get through the rest of the calendar year and pay the debt. residents are worried about the long-term prospects of the island they are concerned about the lack of jobs the lack of economic opportunity. at the same time they exist in this grey yeah that i have limited access to federal benefits like medicare. at the same time they don't have to pay income taxes, some arguing they need statehood or access to a chapter 9.
8:22 am
they are awaiting to see the impact on the broader markets, if any. >> we are waiting to see if that hits. don't move joining us in puerto rico is the co-founder and co-ceo credit opportunities, an investor in puerto rican debt. good to have you here. >> explain one thing to the audience. 75 billion roughly for puerto rican debt. less tan greece, when i look back at greece at least most of the debt was kind of the same thing, different maturity five years, ten years, 30 years, london, greek. generally, you can do a restructuring on the entire pile all at once. puerto rico has collateralized everything. it's like the greek diner menu 1,500 different issuances, how do you decide which of those you will pick based on what will default first or last year. you can't default all at once? >> it is important to understand there are 18 different credits
8:23 am
on the island of puerto rico. it ranged differently. so your decisions come from understanding which ones actually have the ability to pay and which ones have protections for creditors. that's important. because some of them have the ability to pay. this is a fact that's lost in the rhetoric of the country. government. they kind of conplate all the debt and make it seem as though all the debt cannot be paid. frankly, it's just fought true. there is actual capacity within the system to pay the most senior obligations the debt the sales tacticco fi na. so there is a healthy amount of solvency. further down without doubt, there is going to be impairment in the credits, default likely structuring. we are all guessing. there is no plan. we see today, there are three issues coming. we know one is likely to be defaulted on. the other is being told there will be a payout for the development bank. we are sure theco fi na bonds as well. the market is tough to guess.
8:24 am
we are not given a clear plan how this liquidity is navigated here. >> in the wake people think of credit am i going to get paid pack? how many pennies on the dollar am i to pay about whether or not i will get paid back. >> i think in certain parts of the capital stack. the breadth of the different credits, that's true. frankly, when i look at the top part, i look at it it's joined five times coverage, do i look at the general obligation bonds which have a priority under the constitution, where expenses have been barely cut. there is ample capacity to get par they're trading mid to high 60s probably. >> you don't think they need par? >> i don't think there is any need in a learning requirement and debt.
8:25 am
>> it has been with them at least 18 months. in doing so what they haven't done is addressed. >> given what you are saying a lot of people felt we can't. >> over and days later, we would pay $2 billion in debt service payments. a lot of people thought he was crying wolf. today the public finance corporations missed payment, may be the first domino to fall in terms of what he was talking about. how much of this is political posturing and making the problem worse and how much of it is a real thing? >> well there is no doubt there is a problem. but the government's rhetoric hasn't helped. it's added to the volatility. i've talked about how it makes all the debt seem the same. we see today that's not the case. some is payable.
8:26 am
some is not. ignore the insolvency protections over there. this is the reason there is a lot of on island blow back to the rhetoric. it hurts puerto ricans most profoundly than anyone else. we talk about whether the contagion in the market. it's significant relative to what this will do to puerto rico. it will hurt the economy and earn the debt it's owned by puerto ricans. there is no way that's going to be something that's good for the island. so the governor has probably engaged if what is largely a political exercise here and it's lent to a lot of confusion in the marketplace. >> on that note the health care crisis is coming to puerto rico. it's great to have you. >> thank you very much. >> thank you for joining us from puerto rico. >> okay. coming up breaking knick economic news then. chrysler expected ford an gm expected later this morning. will the numbers be enough? we'll find out. as we head to break. take a look at u.s. equities futures at this hour one hour

'we get on the back side. we were a little hotter in terms of a tenth on the front side. deflate year over year might be something you want to pay attention to. that's on a year over year up .3.

if we look at pc core month up year over year core 1.3. too es are fascinating in the form of construction spending. interest rates on the low side. global horse power is big contributions the likes of coin potentially europe. trade issues between europe china, japan, all these things same to be having taking a bit of a toll on the marketplace. of course, post-fed meeting. nothing really but more questions than answers, fed fund futures for what little market reads we have the messages. they don't seem tore the september tightening. back to you, i hope you had a good weekend. >> rick, great weather. >> steve liesman is here with more on the data. >> show me the numbers, 1.3?
8:32 am
1.3 and 1.3. do you have confidence that number is financial to 2 12k34r yes -- no. >> is that gdp. >> no res to the core that the fed watches over the last four months they have been 1.3 each month. thist number janet yellen needs more or less to make confident that the number is going towards 2%. you tell me. i will tell you that the headline the year over year number for the headline price index, 0.1, 0.2, 0.3. notice there are percentage points underneath that. my take is that they're not so much interested and confident as going to two. but confidence is not going back down to zero. i this i they get that from there. so rick had a different take. i don't know if he's still around. it will be interesting to hash out where he is coming from. but to me just barely enough to
8:33 am
get under the wire for that rate hike i this i. >> we have a full conversation of when will they raise? when will they raise? everybody is focused on unemployment. if they want an excuse not to go. >> i think that's exactly right, michelle. i was going to say, the job story is in the win column for raising rates. >> for sure. >> it's the inflation story. now, i will tell you. >> you need both. >> you have one of two, you don't have both. >> why are you 75% september and others think september is going to happen too. if you need both parts of the equation, you are getting one. >> the question started off with that retorical theme. what do you feed to be confident going to two and to me you just barely getting there. it's really not confidence they don't want to hike into fear of deflation. >> when you look at what's hapg
8:34 am
happening in commodities, they're getting pummelled. >> you have manufacturing getting cheaper. you know. >> the guy with the totally shaved head. >> not on shaving my head. >> a simple question. . . we won't go into that. simple question. let's forget whether you believe the numbers on inflation or you want to look at financial versus traditional. look at that 1.3. i want to understand let's say it stays that way five more years and growth stays between two and 2.5% for five more years, you would say we stay at zero for five more years? >> that's a great question. i think you would. i think you would. in fact you could make an argument right there, rick you may want to sit down when i say
8:35 am
this, for additional quantitative easing. theoretically. >> i tell you why if you have your goal you are not hitting it at zero, it tells you, you are theoretically too tight. you feed a greater stimulus joe is about to fall off his chair. >> you make the effect that it's affecting the issues you are monitoring. >> that's another great question you bring up. >> that will be jackson hole. >> it's a statement of fact. >> it's a statement of fact in that the feds should -- >> i seen the papers that give me a high correlation of fed policy versus traditional question or financial inflation or growth or the people dropping out of the labor force. >> if there is one thing the fed should be able to do is affect the inflation rate. it should be able with the quantity of money to choose an inflation rate. >> that is proven to be untrue over the six or seven-year
8:36 am
period the fed has been at zero. >> what is that? >> we don't know. nobody knows. you should be able to do it. you can't pick a potential growth rate. those are matters of the economy, productivity all things. you can -- >> you can't artificially -- >> you can. rick, where we disagree is the theory is you should be able to nudge the economy back to it's growth rate. >> the government shouldn't do the nudgeing. business should be doing the nudging. if the government does the nudge, they're nudges. >> it's a play like. it can be done. >> thank you, guys. >> christ ler reporting, more on those numbers and the auto makers today. let's hear from phil le beau. >> hey, scott, better than
8:37 am
expected numbers in july the estimate, 3.3%. jeep remains the red hot brand. you look at the brands in the mass market. jeep sales last month up 23%, all a part of chrysler posting its best july since 2005. we have july sales numbers from nissan coming in with a gain of 7.8%. it was a an estimate a gain of 9%. when you look at suvs, crossovers, pick-ups. that's the hot market up 22% for nissan. here are the estimates for the other major plays within the auto industry last month. don't get focused up or down. what you want to see is overall for the entire industry last month and when you look in the show rooms, we talked with dealers, everybody said the same
8:38 am
thing, the sales rate for last month is expected to come in between 17.1 and 17.3 million. if that happens, it will be three straight months above 17 million as a sales base. the first time the u.s. has done that since 2000. the reason we are focusing on these guys is because they are really in the sweet spot of the market right now. trucks suvs, red hot, especially with lower gas prices, guys we will get those footballs from those guys coming up in the next 45 minutes. back to you. >> hot getting hotter. $46 oil today. so it's not the jeeps, it's the jeep cherokee. >> whatever their suv models are. >> it's across the line. usually you look at a lineup, you say a couple old models they can stand to put out to pasture or refresh. that's not the case with jeep right now. it is every single pod el they
8:39 am
