calling for big changes to his title. we'll explain what that means. it's tuesday, october 30th "worldwide exchange" from london begins right now ♪ good morning a warm welcome to "worldwide exchange" live from london feels good to say those words again. i'm sitting in for brian sullivan today who will be back next week. let's check in on the market action futures pushing higher following yesterday's wild ride on wall street we're higher by half a percent or so for the three major indices. that's 13 points on the s&p. dow up 19 points nasdaq up 15 points. the dow was down 566 points at the low, it was significantly higher at the open
overall a 918-point range. the biggest since february as you can see, the high of the day came near the open, an hour into trade, the low about a half hour from the end of the session. only a strong rally in the final half hour of trade allowed us to finish down what was essentially about 0.5% for the s&p, 1.6% for the nasdaq 1% for the dow the range on the s&p intraday yesterday was the low of the day, down 2.8. the futures call for the dow to be higher by 94 points the overseas picture not too bad. reacting to the final half hour of u.s. trade as opposed to the lows of the session. hong kong down, as you can see japan and shanghaiare up over 1% we'll drive into asian trade in a bit more detail.
european trade at the moment, just higher, 0.1% for the broader stoxx 600 index. individual markets for you there, it's changed a bit. softened in the last half hour or so. germany down 0.4%. france down 0.4% if we talk in terms of sectors here in europe, oil and gas and autos higher volkswagen and bp having strong numbers, 4% higher banks and industrials are towards the bottom including bnp paribas down about 4%. with the asian trade, nancy hungerford in singapore. hi, nancy. >> hi, wilfred that wild ride on wall street you were talking about, it appears investors here are taking it in stride, even though we had a negative open for the nikkei 225, but a different story by the close this 1.5% increase for the japanese market is the best increase we've seen in 2 1/2
months that gives an indication of how rough things have been out here. we saw big moves to the upside in part due to the rebound on chinese markets. both the shanghai and the shenzhen are up by 1% here this came as regulators indicated once fwan they're willing willing to take steps to calm market jitters many investor remain nervous about the ongoing trade tensions between the u.s. and china look at the hang seng, it is off 0.9% the worst level since may of 2017 so good news here, but rather tentative increases at this stage wilfred? >> thank you very much for that. let's turn to the other big story in asia, trade the u.s. reportedly working up new tariffs on china if talks collapse between president trump and china's president. let's get to eunice yoon into beijing with the latest.
hi, eunice >> hi, wilfred that announcement could come as early as december. supposedly the tariffs would cover the rest of the chinese goods that are not taxed that's 2$260 billions worth. the timing of it would mean that the tariffs would kick in around chinese new year next year, so about february or so the talk of the tariffs also came as the trump administration said it's going to impose an export ban on a state semic semiconductor company. it's one of three companies in china that are seen as very important to china building its own domestic chip industry the company was also accused by micron technology of the u.s. of stealing some of its secrets the chinese company is a specialty or has a specialty in dram chips the commerce department said the decision was made on national security grounds this would bar the company from
sourcing from u.s. suppliers some people i've been talking to here say that will be damaging for the company because it is building a new $6 billion plant also reportedly has plans to ma mass produce some of those chips by next year so the foreign ministry reacted to both developments saying on the export ban that it hopes the u.s. can do more to enhance trust between the two countries and on the talk of the tariffs, saying the u.s. noise won't succeed in intimidating china. wilfred? >> eunice, clearly the rhetoric between the two countries not particularly positive at the moment we are, of course, approaching the u.s. midterms. is there a sense in china that firstly there's no point in trying to improve the tone until those passed but secondly there's increased hope once they have passed to progress things in a slightly more positive tone >> yeah, i would say so. there's a lot of people watching the midterms some people are saying that
maybe we should wait to see what happens after the midterms, and see whether or not president trump will have increased power or decreased power so there's a lot of waiting an seeing at this point so people are wondering what to do and waiting to see what happens next like the rest of us >> eunice, great stuff thank you very much. let's bring all this together and discuss the latest markets moves. with me is simon derrick from bny melon. let's talk about the moves this morning in the currency market dollar not doing too much. it was up a quarter percent yesterday. it is moving against the yen today. what's happening there >> it's fascinating watching dollar/yen over the last 48 hours. this is the class independentedy indicator of sentiment dollar/yen we're trading at the highs for the last couple of
days 112.75, 112.80 that suggests maybe sentiment is turning a bit. >> from negative to positive >> absolutely. it did well during the asian session. like that rally you saw on the shanghai composite on the back of this talk of some support for the market from the securities regulator. that's interesting to me the bad news is coming in, it is not hitting the dollar, it's not helping the yen. it's not the only place you're seeing that shift in sentiment look at treasury yields. tresh treasury yields barely moved yesterday. so maybe we're getting early indication of after three, four weeks of incredibly bad news for markets, perhaps sentiment is starting to stabilize once you look outside the u.s >> so clearly a stronger dollar
against the yen could suggest a move back towards risk on, but stronger dollar against other currencies usually means risk off if we look at the move yesterday, up a quarter percent the dollar index, over the last month, 1.5% higher for the dollar what is that reacting to? could that be suggesting risk off? >> i think that's reacting to it, but most of that move you are probably talking about shifts in european currencies. there you got specific things going on you had the italy story. that's unresolved. we have a standoff between brussels and that will be sorted out, but then you also have the brexit story that is continuing to weigh on sentiment because we have yet to get a resolution on the biggest issue of all, the border between ireland and northern ireland, nobody knows how we deal with that we only have five months left. the market is only waking up to that risk.
it's a little like 2016, february and march time when people suddenly realized there was a real risk out there. >> possibility of change in leadership in germany as well is another factor to watch. to bring things back to the u.s., what's your latest take on the data in the u.s. and what that means for the likely path of interest rates. >> as far as i'm concerned, there's nothing in the data that suggests the fed will make a radical shift in its path. so for the moment at least i still think we'll get that move next year. do i still think there's a decent chance of three moves next year for the fed, absolutely i do also think we'll get close to the top of this economic cycle, yeah, i think that's what the yield curve has been telling us i think why we've had this stumbling market over the course of the last few weeks is the realization that we're not actually that far away >> great to see you as always. thank you very much for joining me in london turning to the wall street
agenda another big batch of earnings before the open look for results from coke, ge and under armour, after the bell it's all about facebook. make sure you tune in to see brian sullivan and sara eisen host the closing bell to break down those numbers at 4:00 p.m. eastern time on the economic front, we'll get the latest read on the health of the housing market with the case-shiller home bryce price index. in the u.s., consumer staples have been holding up frank holland has a look at what's been driving that move. hi, frank. >> hi, wilf. consumer staples is one of two sectors in the s&p holding its value during this wild month and even after yesterday's wild swings that sector up 1% since the start of october alcohol related stocks in the group have been going in the opposite direction when we look at the group, we'll see brown-forman seeing the
steepest fall down over 8% molson coors down almost 8%. mode modello down 6%. constellation with a huge investment in canopy, that stock down 14% at the close. another alcohol stock we've been looking at, not in the group in the s&p, but doing worse anheuser-busch inbev down. difficult month in beer an wine but other consumer staples doing good >> frank, lovely stuff looking forward to seeing you later in the show. coming up, where u.s. investors can find big opportunities overseas plus milk's favorite cookie enjoying a nice pop. we're breaking down mondelez's

nasdaq up about 24 points. yesterday we did see the s&p up 1.8% about an hour into trade, down 2.1% with about a half hour left, ending down just two-thirds of a percent, down 0.66%. wild intraday moves yesterday. money ledelez shares are trg higher they posted better than expected earnings in organic reeve ne iie growth up 2.7%. it was enjoying a bigger move after hours yesterday. but it is still higher in the premarket. texas roadhouse shares are getting punished after earnings fell short of analysts estimates. higher labor costs they say are continuing to effect performance. and akamai getting a boost this morning
the company announcing a 1$1.1 billion share buyback plan that's given it a 10% jump ahead of the open. bp out with quarterly results this morning profits more than doubling to hit a five-year high higher oil prices are part of the story there. bp shares are up a healthy 4% in trade in london. i'm delighted to say cnbc's steve sedgwick joins me on set steve, thank you for letting me go back to the studio. >> you're welcome. >> tell us what's happening with bp >> luke at tyou look at the bano get into the weeds i do the same with the oil companies. sometimes you don't have to get into the weeds, it's just there for you. as you said a massive beat 24% beat on the headline figure as well. that's really as far as you need to go. you could say the cash flow was
in line but we want more in this but the fact is this is a company we all know what transformed itself under the ceo bob dudley and the cfo brian gilroy we were asking brian on set today whether the volatility of that outlook, whether it's saudi, iran, the opec group whether that was effecting the market >> if this was five years ago and oil price stocks were at the top end, beyond the five-year averages, i don't think these sort of geopolitical moments like sanctions or oil being taken off market would have the effects it's having today. we're back below the five-year average. when the oil stocks run below the five-year average it means you'll see more volatility so oil prices will range in plus or minus $5 or $10 a barrel off the back of geopolitical uncertainties. >> i have been looking at the an
cysts, they all like this one. ubs is saying they have the confidence to make that bhp purchase in all cash jeffries is positive on this as well saying the down street beat was 25%. bernstein likes this one, they have an outperform on the stock. >> steve, as you said, the update from the cfo he gave you on the deal for bhp, and you look at the strong cash flow and the dividend yield of bp, compared to the likes of chevron and exxon, it's almost a 50% dividend yield european oil majors valuation difference and yield difference is significant this was the big battle at royal
dutch shell and total, convince people these dividends were long-term. 10 cents a share was the u.s. dividend for a long time they have kept the dividend in the third quarter. interesting what happens on that front. for a long time the ceos were trying to convince sharerholder the dividend would stick >> and looking at political risk and investors minds, has it peaked or can it get worse >> i think it can get worse. spain, there's all kinds of issues with the catalans merkel is in a strange position, she thinks she can be chancellor
and not leader of the cdu. she actually could be ousted because that's what happened to schmidt in 1982. we look at france, and i looked at the latest poll for macron, he's at 29%. that's way worse than the u.s. president, mr. trump . >> also lower than it was for mr. holland and mr. sarkozy. >> we have this little thing called brexit. >> what's that >> a mess. >> i don't know if i know about that steve, thank you very much for joining me on your own set still to come on "worldwide exchange," we're on volatility watch. the dow taking a wildride during yesterday's session we'll brik doeak down how to tr the turmoil and elon musk stirring up confusion on twitter overnight for a change what the tech executive is enying about his tesla title wh "worldwide exchange" comes back
let's talk about this when we meet next week. how did edward jones come to manage a trillion dollars in assets under care? jay. sarah. so i have a few thoughts on that early retirement... by focusing our mind on whatever's on yours. welcome back to "worldwide exchange." we were looking quite positive about an hour or so ago on the futures market we were up triple digits on the dow. up 0.5 mr%, 0.6%. that has slipped the dow is up 24 points or so. about 0.1%, 0.2% now in percentage terms we are losing momentum the same is true of european trade which was essentially flat
earlier. now looking at a half percent of declines for germany and france. yesterday was a wild ride on wall street. we saw the s&p 500 go from 2% higher about an hour into trade to 2% lower, then rally for the final half hour and end down about two-thirds of a percent. earlier both asian and european trade seemed to react more to the final half hour of trade the positive bounce, but just slipping now nothing too worrying we're still higher that has continued the dow, s&p and nasdaq all close to the flat line, albeit just higher. slipping a little bit, down to less than a half percent moves for germany and france let's check in on other news making headlines molly hall is in new york with the latest >> good morning. president trump is expected to visit pittsburgh today as funerals begin for the 11 victims of last weekend's mass shooting at the tree of life

session. countdown to facebook. the social media giant out with results later today. what to expect when it reports. and the nothing of tesla what elon musk said on twitter overnight that is getting a lot of buzz. we'll explain. it's tuesday, october 30, 2018 you're watching "worldwide exchange" on cnbc. ♪ good morning welcome to "worldwide exchange" live in london i'm wilfred frost sitting in for brian sullivan let's get you up to speed on what's happening out there frank holland is back at hq with your morning headlines >> here's what's leading cnbc right now. the trump administration is reportedly planning new tariffs against all remaining chinese imports if trade talks between washington and beijing break down here's volkswagen's cfo on cnbc earlier this morning talking trade tension and the impact on business and investors
>> nervousness in the market is partly a reflection on the discussion some people call it a war on trade terms between the united states and europe and china. i think it's important that we come back to the negotiation table that we find mutually acceptable solutions but it is a difficult situation and all those rumors and speculations are certainly making it very hard on investors to stay focused in our industry. but i think we still believe that all parties are very clear about the consequences of rising tariffs and therefore it is important that we come to fair solutions. bp shares are rising in europe this morning. the oil giant's quarterly profit more than doubling topping expectations results were driven by higher energy prices. bp's cfo telling cnbc that oil prices may soften a little but he thinks they will probably stay above $70 a barrel in the short to medium term.
walmart is getting ready with a focus on speed. the retailer has been testing a check out on me option that will roll out to all the stores on black friday walmart employees will be able to meet customers in the aisles, scan bulky items like flat screen tvs and let shoppers pay on the spot. wilf, back over to you >> thank you very much let's check in on the market action yesterday you'll need no reminder, a wild day up 1.8% near the open on the s&p, down 2% a half hour from the close. rallied in that final half hour of trade on wall street to be down two-thirds of a percent this morning we're called higher but we lost steam in the last hour the dow was higher by 100 points, now it's up by 41. the nasdaq up 9 points the s&p up 6 good to see we are holding steady, having lost steam most
of the last half hour or so. european trade is lower, the dax and the french cac down more than a half of a percent treasuries first, excuse me. there is the ten-year, 3.11% we've seen yields rise a bit overnight. two-year at 2.84%. international trade, asia mainly higher we did see most of the markets trade higher after, of course what was a wild day yesterday on wall street. we could have seen it open lower. the nikkei up 1.4% there is european trade for you. lower by 0.6% or so on the dax frank impro france improving, and the ftse holding on to a few gains. when europe softened a bit over the last half hour, futures did drag down, but good to see futures holding on to some green. oil prices as of late have been
slipping yesterday down 0.8%. today seeing a bit more weakness again. of course month to date now down 9% for wti significant weakness bp bucked the trend of recent weakness in oil prices still up significantly year to date with those great results. currency board, the u.s. dollar up about a quarter of a percent yesterday. the broader index is up over 1.5% today seeing some dollar strength against the yen, which could be encouraging for risk sentiment. now we are on volatility watch following yesterday's wild ride on wall street at its high the dow was up 352 points at its low the dow was down 566 points a 918-point range. the biggest intraday range since february let's talk more about what the big swing meant yesterday. joining me is patrick armstrong. great to see you again >> good morning. >> let's talk about the intraday
move yesterday does the fact that we got down 2% or so in the s&p and rallied so significantly over a percent into the close on wall street suggest that valuations got low enough and it's time to buy? >> i don't think so. valuations are stretched i think the one measure people talk about is price to earnings, that's the easy measure that everyone looks at. markets are not incredibly expensive on that measure. if you look at price to ebita, the market has never been more expensive. we come off 10% since then still incredibly expensive operating margins, profit margins are at record highs that will turn the corner things making earnings look good is you got record high profit margins. 10.1 mr 10.1%, never been achieved before >> so the valuation point you're saying is relative to the fundamentals, which is crucial to view, relative to the earnings outlook as opposed to the arbitrary point that the
market is overpriced relative to europe it's overpriced -- >> to itself exactly. 11 times price to ebita, the market never got there before. in the tech bubble it never got there. we have fallen 10% i think there's a good chance we're in a bear market before christmas. market is still expensive even with these basically 10% selloff. it's in official correction now. i think we get into an official bear and the markets still won't be cheap my view is the economy is going to deliver as well as most consensus expect i'm not in the camp where there's a recession. but we've always had a put option for the last ten years the central bank and the fed have given us a put option. we don't have that now are there pockets of value in the u.s. market? >> the old-fashioned cyclical stocks the stocks that people didn't buy to be bulletproof.
buy a disney short a netflix. disney trading at 15 times earnings people are talking about netflix value coming from 8 billion in spend on new content disney does that in three different movies, it's got merchandising, music, theme parks. much more diversified, much cheaper. look for old-fashioned companies, sell the bulletproof, the f.a.n.g. companies basically. >> for u.s. viewers, some of the stocks in europe that you do like that you would suggest they buy, you like the european banks which have often been scary to touch. >> buy the scariest parts right now. we think the economic back drop will be supportive we don't buy in to the coming recession. stocks that will be hurt, companies like a.mazon, but you have to bet into the future 15 years. with the rising interest rates, you want companies producing
earnings now so companies like bnp, poor results today on the revenue line, but not poor overall they're creating, a lore cower t structure going forward. that's a company you don't have to wait long for >> airbus over boeing? >> airbus, that could be a real beneficiary from the trade wars if they do emerge. china is a big buyer from airbus and from boeing. if anything, it creates a pivot towards european companies we think airbus is a cheap cyclical company right now >> autos have been in the eye of the storm. would you buy any european names? >> companies picking up 6 to 8 times earnings, giving you a yield of 4%, 5%, the end of the world won't come, but don't be buying the bulletproof companies that are way too expensive >> patrick, thank you for joining us let's find out what else
you'll be talking about today. frank is back at hq with the top trending stories >> here's what's trending. every halloween nasa engineers compete in a pumpkin carving contest as you might expect the results are out of this world. the only rule is no carving during work hours and the only prize is bragging rights the results are amazing with lights, robotic motion, and nods to pop culture icons. elon musk is back at it. the tesla ceo taking to twitter to talk about his job title. musk tweeting deleted my tesla titles last week to see what would happen i'm now the nothing of tesla, seems fine so far. it's not clear what he meant here and tesla has not responded to requests for clarification this move comes a month after musk agreed to step down as
s.e. chair. and twit ser gter is gettind of the like button but the twitter world is up in arms over this the twitter communication team says it is rethinking everything including the like button. >> it's interesting this one i don't know why it's such a controversial topic. the like button is not as important as it is to something like instagram i can see the thinking behind removing it, so people make interesting comments but it's not as relevant as with instagram. >> people shoot off comments to each other all the time. i don't know if the like button will improve quality of interactio interactions >> no. not too long ago people thought these social media networks
would add a dislike button that would be a further step great stuff. >> thank you very much the buffalo bills hosted the new england patriots on monday night. the patriots made easy work of the bills winning the game by a final score of 25-6. on the topic of the nfl and me being in london, i can't move on without mentioning what a great time i had on sunday watching the eagles take on the jaguars and victorious as the eagles were as well. nice opening to hear both the national anthems of the uk and the u.s. here's another picture, myself with jim cramer. thank you to jim for taking me to the game. great fun. great to see such great support for nfl in london. wembley stadium playing host to that game. up next, the "f" in f.a.n.g.

this morning we are above 3.1%. let's discuss all of this with bruise kasman from jpmorgan chase. thank you very much for joining me >> good morning. >> bruce, first of all, clearly big selloff and volatility yesterday and of late. does the fundamental data in the u.s. economy give reason for that >> i don't think the data is driving it we have u.s. policy, which is the fed continuing to tighten and pushing up interest rates more broadly markets are adjusting to that. the second thing is u.s. trade policy that has been moving more aggressively on china. those are things that the u.s. has been doing that affects equity markets the other thing that is in the mix is disappointing data outside the u.s., disappointing data in europe and more broadly on where capex spending is
the question is whether the markets themselves will start to become a direct influence on the macro picture. we don't think so. but we have not seen how this story plays itself out >> clearly the trade tensions don't just potentially affect the u.s. economy, but the world economy, and china in particular has been in focus. the chinese economy has the ability to drag down the global economy. can china kick start growth again if it needs to does it have the tools at its disposal if necessary? >> i think they can. we've seen their ability to influence macro performance through policy is quite substantial. the question is first of all whether they are moving aggressively enough against the back drop of the trade drags, and the second issue is whether the timing is aligned. whether we see the stimulus kick nalt same ti at the same time as the drags are building the third quarter downshifted,
where we are in september and october is mixed in terms of what the data is telling us now. we hope to see stasbilization over the next three months as some of the stimulus policy kicks in >> you mentioned europe, the data so data soft there. what about the rest of the emerging markets >> turkey and argentina are weak you have the other asian economies, al lot of central an eastern europe which are doing okay but certainly affected by the softness in the euro area. generally the softness in manufacturing. so it's a very mixed bag, and politics is very big in the agenda mexi mexico, brazil and a few others are interesting now. >> the equity markets have taken
the brunt of investor concerns of late what about the credit levels >> we think the fed can have a high degree of tolerance for equity markets if they don't spill over to other markets. we have seen some small funding but nothing that gets the fed's attention. that's an important thing to watch here if we want to think about how the fed will deal with a shift here going on in the equity market. >> bruce, great to see you as always thank you for joining us bruce kasman of jpmorgan about 30 seconds left on the show let's check in on what the futures are doing after yesterday's wild ride on wall street a 918-point spread on the dow intraday 4% spread roughly speaking on the s&p. it was up 2% or so near the open, 2% a half hour from close.
