5:12 am
earnings will hold together pretty well. there is decent valuation support. i categorize my view as short-term bullish medium-term as we get into the fall period bearish. i think we will retest the lows established earlier in the year. mainly because we're going to now focus on the mid-term elections and the uncertainty of perhaps what a change in congress might look like and what the policies might come out of that. that will be a further uncertainty. >> dan, if you are so focused on the negative potential catalysts in the second half of the year, why shouldn't investors sit on cash and wait and do nothing for the next few months? >> i think if you get a bear market rally, it can be powerful and perhaps if you are overweight to stocks, that might be an opportunity to raise cash. i agree with that.
5:13 am
i do think the fall is a great buying opportunity the way i see things layout right now with the potential for substantial recovery rally in the fourth quarter into the new year. >> that's seasonal factor at play during the holidays, you see seasonal strength in the markets overall. maybe that is still in play. if that is the case, what is on your shopping list what opportunities present is it energy and value or shop for the mega cap >> you raise a great point, dom. you want to focus on companies where the absolute price earnings multiple isattractive tech stocks as we know are long duration bond assets we are in a rising rate environment with elevated

5:36 am
macon m may consumer price index 8.3% expected on a yearly basis. core prices stripping out food and energy, it will fall from april's 6.2% out at 5.9% it remains the highest level in 40 years and ahead of the target level. joining me now is wells fargo's economist sarah house. sarah, this is the report that many investors have been waiting for all week more important than the ecb guidance yesterday what are your expectations for that number? >> we are looking for above consensus gain on the headline looking for the overall index to increase 0.8% this month that would drive the year over year rate up to 8.4% now the core is looking for consensus. 0.5% that would mark a slight
5:37 am
moderation from the gain in april. if you step back and look at the big picture, the increase in core is still running at a blazing pace that's consistent with over 6% annualized we are still not seeing much relief at all with inflation >> if that's the case, what exactly is the scenario that plays out in your mind in the economy going forward? is this going to be a situation where prices remain high enough and continue to creep high enough where there will be some kind of demand destruction or slowdown in the economy? >> i think we are seeing inflation at levels where it is affecting consumer purchasing behavior we heard reports of consumers trading down or some things in terms of the retail gasoline stations sales when you adjust for price changes. those have slipped since february with gas prices begin
5:38 am
to shoot higher. i think we are starting to see behavioral changes you have to put that in context of what is a strong job market a lot of people continuing to get paychecks now. that is helping support aggregate income this will lead to a slowdown in consumer spending, but we think households can weather the storm for a while yet. >> sarah, janet yellen was speaking at a deal book event and she basically said she doesn't think a recession is likely that it will not happen any time soon here. what is your view? recession will happen eventually we know this it is bound to happen. is it any time soon? is it this year? is it the first half of 2023 is it the second half? when does that model out in your mind >> recession through our forecast horizon through 2023 is
5:39 am
our base case. we think the risks are elevated given how high inflation is and how aggressively we expect the fed to move to combat it we are looking for the fed to move into restrictive territory through early next year. we think that will have a noticeable impact on growth particularly by the second half of next year or growth move decidedly below trend. that said, in order to keep the soft landing scenario in play with the below trend growth, but not outright recession, you need a number of pieces to fall in place. increased labor force participation to help job growth continue without putting pressure on further wages. we need the shift of the spending in consumers. shifting away from goods where you see high inflation over past two years relative to the past two decades and shifting to services where inflation has been softer. we think that we can see
5:40 am
potentially a soft landing, but it will not be easy. >> sarah house of wells fargo. thank you very much. coming up on the show, exclusive look at the week's biggest buys by company insiders including one executive making a multimillion dollar purchase those names comi ungp on "worldwide exchange. that's next. to freeze your pain and your doubt. heat makes it last. so you'll never sit this one out. new icy hot pro with 2 max-strength pain relievers.

5:46 am
investors can feel comfortable dipping their toes back in when there is still so much uncertainty specifically from the government >> i think the two main concerns around the companies within kweb is the china internet regulation and u.s. regulation with the u.s. listed china adrs the china regulation has lots of signs this regulatory cycle is likely over or is in the very late innings just simply based on the user data and user protection laws which went into place at the end of last year certainly speeches like the vice premier back on march 16th the former issue looks like we are very confident the worst is over you saw news with didi and ant ipo and that further signals that the one issue we are much
5:47 am
less concerned today >> brendan, they are green lighting video games again as you look at that, we are familiar with the handful of names in the u.s. because they are part of the nasdaq 100 and within that trading range that people see as being in the lexicon when it comes to u.s. listed chinese stocks. jd and baidu and others. do they have buying opportunities in your mind or do you have to be cautious with the down side over the last year >> certainly from the valuation perspective, alibaba and baidu and others like tencent and meituan are one or two standard deviations below the five-year valuation level. there is still good opportunity and i think something you pointed out, dom, we had
5:48 am
significant out performance. it has been a terrible week for u.s. equities and europe equities and asian you have kweb looking to end the week up 10% this week. you are talking about a 15% performance this week alone versus the s&p 500 the investors need to be aware and take advantage of the performance we're seeing within the space. >> the out performance we know there is a segment of traders who chase that bre brendan, what do you see with fund flows are investors putting money to work in funds like you'rs >> dom, kweb is now over $76 billion. we see investors allocate to kwk kweb

5:52 am

5:53 am
if you look at this overall, ll lizzie, investors were nervous about putting money to work when they have seen damage already done is this a constructive environment to put cash to work? >> good morning, dom excited to be here i think there is still a lot of uncertainty in the market. there's a lot of uncertainty with the fed and what it will do we are watching the cpi report this morning i think there are certain parts of the market that still offer long-term opportunity. you have to be selective and quality matters in the environment. >> if it is quality that matters, what exactly does quality mean in your mind? there are many factors, lizzie, many characteristics that people look for in your mind, what does that mean >> i think quality means so many
5:54 am
investors are focused on style is it time to sell value and go to growth? you want to be focused on key fundamentals look for companies with strong free cash flow look for companies with strong balance sheets cash is king right now low debt loads i think to your point, energy is strong i think energy will continue to be strong. really given the structural imbalance with commodities and energy priceprices you have on to look from the bottom up standpoint as to invest >> let's talk about bottom up. when it comes to energy, are we talking about oil majors like chevron and exxon or the pipeline companies or smaller to midcap oil production? what are you putting clients into right now >> we like the major integrated oil and gas companies. as you mentioned, chevron.
5:55 am
