5:09 am
cnbc council ivory, thank you for being here. >> thank you forego having me >> inflation up 8% over the last year over the target of 2%. we are officially over the word transitory what are you most concerned about? the balance sheet or the time going? >> it is both. you know, tightening into an environment where gdp is slowing already. that is reflected in the flat yield curve. not compensating bond investors for time or we are seeing that with earnings per share guidance which is negative. more companies are negative for three consecutive quarters that was bad enough that they are tightening by raising the fund rate. the balance sheet is spooking the markets and just to add contact. the federal balance sheet is $1
5:10 am
trillion in 2008 to $4.5 trillion in 2014 to close to $9 trillion today if you look at the chart of the s&p 500, and the federal reserve balance sheet, they are almost in lock-step you can reduce the balance sheet. you can allow the bonds to roll off. as the bonds mature, they will not refinance. another $1 trillion matures in 2023 they can get more aggressive and actually start selling bonds on the balance sheet. that is far more aggressive than the market would tolerate because not only are you re-hypohicating debt, but you are competing with the federal reserve. that may be one reason you see yields on the long end start to
5:11 am
rise >> the market is concerned about the plan i know you are concerned about consumer spending. we had $1.2 trillion in stimulus unlikely we get anything like this this year that is one of the reasons you are staying away from tech and growth stocks. you are down on those. what areas are you bullish >> i'm bullish on gold you had the segment on russia. what the united states is essentially doing is weaponized the u.s. dollar. that may help buy gold in portfolios gold does well in the environment with inflation it is not that inflation is going to go down, but not up a same late as last year anytime you see a rate of change basis and inflation and economy is accelerating, gold does well. there are bond proxies and consumer staples these are defensive in nature.
5:12 am
it is interesting to see what happens with bond yields it may come to pass as the economy he slows down and the fd stops getting hawkish, that makes bonds more aattractive particularly with a safe haven trade. bonds on the long end are defensive in this environment. >> we will have to keep our eye on bonds ivory johnson, thank you when we come back, jay powell and the fed looking to ramp up the window and the supply chain pressures. the ceo is speaking about that we will go live overseas where secretary of state blinken and nato members are mapping out the strategy over the continued invasion of ukraine.

the consumer goods space should reach about $750 billion by 2023 a massive growth the last couple years. we see now in the sustained way as consumers are getting used to cross border >> you work with global brands like neike and este lauder. >> i think consumers experience has to be local as possible. you behave in a certain way and used to methods of payments in the markets. as brands reach out to global consumers, they are offering the same and convenient and trust worthy paymenting options and direct communications with the brands our view is with the technology and the service we provide to the global brand partners is

5:20 am
in the fashion side of the business or the goods space. the disruption has been massive. we hoped for recovery faster the war in ukraine is not helping to normalize the availability of the we see thatting going on probably throughout the remaining of the calendar year although we expect the peak season to be in a better place by the time we get into september or october and november continued pressure on capacity and inflation ramping up on the supply chain side and rampant across the board at esw, we go to leverage $1.5 billion globally to offer clients the most efficient way

5:24 am
on capitol hill today, a hearing to dive into the costs and the roles of congress when it comes to trading stocks data shedding light on members of congress and investing. we have ylan mui with are more on the findings. people are waking up this morning. >> reporter: good morning, frank. a lot of outrage of the potential for members of congress to trade stocks and profit from their policies are they actually making any money? well, not really, at least not anymore than the average investor research found that if anything, lawmakers under performed the broader market they looked at eight years of trades in the house and senate and compared to a similar basket of stocks. over six months, stocks purchased by members of the house or families, per formed 26 basis points worse than index.
5:25 am
senators or families were 27 points later none of the readings were significant. the researchers looked at the best performing stock picks and portfolios for those accused of insider trading. none showed abnormal returns there are caveats here it is impossible to know how much money any single lawmaker made or lost because financial disclosures don't give us new detail to calculate that because the research focused on average returns, it is possible that could mask one-time gains from insider or inappropriate tra trading. this is all part of the debate we will hear today when the house holds that hearing and if lawmakers should be prohibited from trading particular stocks is this all about the profits or public perception? >> a lot of thoughts about it of
5:26 am
the hot button issue for sure. my question is does it hurt or help the push to ban trading in con congress >> reporter: this research cuts both ways. you can say if they are not beating the market, they are not trading on any insider information. you expect them to do better than the average invinvestor on the other hand, maybe they are getting insider information, but don't know what to do with it and not very good at investing overall. i think really what you hear from lawmakers they want to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest especially at a time when trust in congress is so low. i think that is what is fuelling the debate over whether to ban lawmakers from trading individual stocks. they don't want to have the whiff of problems. >> thought provoking research. ylan mui, thank you. still on deck, gm looking to make a splash with the return

5:36 am
>> sylvia, thank you very much turning attention back to ukraine. a concern for federal reserve members forcing them to hit pause on the bigger rate increase at the march meeting according to the fmoc. a number of members are hawkish to tackle the continued threat of inflation including shrinking the central bank balance sheet by $95 billion a month. for more on the path forward, let's bring in roger ferguson. thank you for being here this morning. >> thank you, frank. >> you know, your insight is valuable the fed minutes yesterday are haw hawkish. markets not happy with the tone. is there an overreaction is there something in there about the more aggressive stance that the markets are overlooking that could be beneficial >> well, i think there are a couple of things to recognize. it is more hawkish it laid out exactly what the
5:37 am
plan is for the gradual reduction in the size of the balance sheet. recognize also they were clear about the uncertainties they confront on both sides while they put more weight on inflation. it is a clear and present danger they will be very data driven. i think the plan is for two or maybe three basis point moves for this year. i also read that as we saw in march, if external circumstances require change of plans, they are ready to do that a fed is clearly wanting to get inflation under control, but recognizes the external environment which is uncertain than the plan itself. >> it sounds like the fed is staying as nimble as it can to battle inflation the tightening in may is earlier
5:38 am
than expected. maybe $1 billion is more than you expected you had philly president said it will be raised to avoid recession. how does the market interpret these messages >> interpret as the following. one, inflation is a clear and present he danger. two, the fed knows it is behind the curve and has to move more expeditiously to catch up. they should recognize the fed will use both of the tools, steadying of interest rates in a methodical way and quantitative tightening of the balance sheet. all of those things are true. the march meeting showed it. the incoming data willi tell th fed and they are planning to change their plans it looked like a number of
5:39 am
people on the fmoc were prepared to go 50 basis points. because of the lead of the chairman, we were comfortable going 25 basis points. this is not a set it and forget it fed this is a fed that has a plan and it will take incoming data as part of its guide certainly they recognize something else the financial conditions, what is happening with interest rates and equity valuations will have an impact on the economy and outlook. they are looking at markets to look at the measure of financial conditions the fact that stocks sold for two days is also important >> before i let you go let's talk about the sell off. tech stocks hit hard by the meeting. how mindful is the fed of the wall street impact and main street inflation hitting a lot of people people having a hard time buying
5:40 am
food and putting gas in the cars >> i think it starts and you heard it from governor brainerd. the main street impact that is in their minds for the reason you pointed out. inflation is a tax on low and moderate income individuals. it is inconsistent with the fed's dual mandate i think main street is very much on their minds the other thing on their minds is the market. in equity valuation particularly they look at that not as an end to it self, but because it reflectsi something called the wealth reflect and confidence. the movement of equity market is not a direct goal, but indication of how the economy might play as individuals feel more or less wealthy obviously, they also look to see from the market and other survey data what is happening with the
5:41 am
market expectation on inflation. i think the market is signaling in some areas concern and inflation may run hot for longer than they want the fed takes in signals from the different areas, but in the inflation message, it is primarily a main street message. they look at wall street because that tells us something about wealth effect and consumer confidence >> we appreciate your insight. former fed chair roger ferguson. still to come on "worldwide exchange." tiger woods is set to tee off with the return of the golf's greatest and what it means for the game's bottom line. before we head to break, nfl and nhl and mlb making investment in the digital platform fanatics. it totals $1.5 billion if the nfl, $320 million total shares of levi's jump on the

5:46 am
how did tiger look did he give off the normal tiger aura before the crash? >> at the age of 46, it was the same tiger he had a one-on-one chat with me before the press conference. he looked serious and all business his stare was as reminiscent as in his 20s he has a noticeable limp especially walking down hill the right leg in rehab he said he would not wish it on anybody. i asked him to compare playing on a broken leg. he said this is more difficult he said he believes he can win the masters tournament and he can be the player he was before the car accident. >> damon, i have seen out the golf channel you say the swing looks good and the back looks good. is the leg that much of an issue? i hear augusta is wet this year
5:47 am
which may be a challenge >> that is right good years and dry years, augusta national is the most difficult golf courses to walk it is hilly. uphill downhill i ran into champ steve el elkington. he said his back looks great he has to deal with the leg. that is less than everybody else in the field it is a big question because the course has taken on more than 1 inch of rain the last couple days it is a hard walk in good times. it will be a very difficult walk for tiger over 72 holes to see how that leg holds up. it is a matter of how he handles the pain and mix of rehab and workingo out and rehab and rest. >> we will not leave without getting your prediction, but first, why is tiger not wearing
5:48 am
nike >> it is all about comfort he is wearing a footjoy model shoe it is about finding the width and comfort in the leg his foot is a different foot and different leg. he had many fractures in the right leg. it is about finding the pr proper fit for the shoe. he is a nike man we know that he is looking to navigate the hills of augusta national. walking uphill walking down hill. he has to swing with comfort and walk with comfort. it is about finding a way to make it to sunday evening, which he hopes to have a green jacket. >> tiger thinks he is going to win. what about you >> we will hear tiger roars. i think he makes the cut i do not pick him to win he pulled the habs rabbit out oe
5:49 am
hat so many times. i'm picking brooks koepka to win this masters i think we will hear atiger roars, but brooks koepka will win the masters. >> damon hack. when will we play? >> call me spring has sprung. we will make it happen >> thank you, dam on. and still on deck, we layout the trading day ahead and what may be in store for the markets with the hawkish fed taking shape. if you missed "worldwide exchange" follow us on all of the podcast platforms.

5:53 am
prot appreciation the fed is pivoting. it tapered the bond buying program. that is gone it has raised for the first time and set plans for raising 50 bips it is talking about reducing the balance sheet by $1 trillion of the wbalance sheet. >> you are saying this is a bernancke legacy allowlluding to more transpareny is this too much information >> i don't think it is tmi i think it is quite good that it does this. it is just it takes a while for the market to digest it.

5:55 am
the regional fed offices we think the fed is doing the right thing. related to tech, the selloff is indiscriminate what is important is separating the wheat from the chaff there is something important in the lives of the businesses and consumers. it will do better as things begin to pick up. >> john, i want to ask you about a pick you say this is simply people taking profits without fomo. people have been standing up with the tech names and thinking the market will do up, up and up. >> i think the thing is the historic long-term effect tells you good businesses will weather all kinds of situations in the economy. the prospects of the secular basis for the technology and what it can do for all 11
