5:04 am
espe else is happening on that market all green across to this point from europe. we got comments from the st. louis fed president speaking about the fund rate moving between 5% and 7%. it sparked interest which means does that mean rates will go higher from here james bullard spoke about raising interest rates and curbing inflation. more needing to be done. a similar sentiment from christine lagarde who is speaking at the european bank congress this morning. ecb president christine lagarde reiterating commitment to tackling inflation with higher rates. >> we expect to raise rates further and withdrawing an accommodation may not be enough.
5:05 am

5:06 am
to commit to hard core work environment. maintaining long hours at quote high intensity most spent the past 48 hours weighing options after waking up to the wednesday email requesting employees make a decision by 5:00 p.m. thursday those who did not opt-in would be given three months severance. internal slack messages shared with cnbc showed that engineers and other employees were posting good-bye messages to a chat group in the run-up to the deadline hundreds of salute emojis indicate thank you for your service were streamed and good buy messages after the deadlines passed and resignations were apparent, twitter emailed remaining work force saying the company is temporarily closing its office buildings effective immediately
5:07 am
and will reopen monday along with the youemail, musk h stricter measures saying you should meet with your teams in person ideally once a week musk threatening to terminate managers who allow employees to work remotely if they are deemed anything less than exceptional without providing guidelines on what qualifies now a group of democratic senators are asking the ftc to investigate twitter over concerns that musk has quote undermined the integrity of the platform in a letter addressed to ftc chair lena kahn, the senators washed the displaying willful disregard
5:08 am
dom, no shortage of drama there. >> no, no, no. not just that, i think there are some folks and users of twitter. you and i are on the platform. there are folks out there trying to hedge against the possibility of twitter not existing in the future could look like i have gotten notes from people on my direct messages saying we're using this platform going forward just so you know here is how you can reach us it has become a weird surreal scenario don't you think? >> yeah. it is a strange thing in we all have come to rely on it. i have been on it now four 12 years, i think, for a lot of us. this shakeup is certainly strange and it certainly, i imagine, they will study in business schools in terms of management and maybe what not to do, i imagine. >> i was looking at my profile
5:09 am
it tells you i joined in may of 2009. it has been a long stretch for me as well bertha coombs, thank you very much see you later on. back on wall street. stocks on the second day of losses after fed officials signal the rate hiking campaign to tame inflation is far from over the latest is james bullard saying the change in monetary policy stance appeared to have limited effects on observed fl inflation. let's talk more about this with mark haefele with ubs. mark, the comments from the st. louis fed had immediate market effects. we saw them in interest rates and commodity prices is this a game changer or is he telling us what we already know that this is higher for longer >> i think he is telling us what with we already know, but some of us don't want to hear
5:10 am
that is the fed is committed to getting inflation under control. histo historically, that has meant raising rates up to the level of inflation. we don't think that will be the case this time, but we have to be respectful of what it has taken in the past. >> so, mark, with that in mind, we are showing a panel worth of economic data. inflation related. cpi, ppi, what not maybe a growing consensus. a growing one that inflation may have peaked or be in the process of peaking if that is the case, what does that mean for the prospects for the economy going forward? are we doomed to recession >> well, it has gotten more difficult to ensure a soft landing. that's clear for a couple of reasons. i think the resilience of the
5:11 am
economy on the one hand is welcome, but it is also kind of made the federal reserve realize that they may have to keep tightening for longer and that could ultimately result in a bit of a deeper recession. i think, you know, what people need to realize is that coming off the peak of inflation is good and that could lead to, you know, something like a santa claus rally. one reason we have concerns about next year is that coming off the peak doesn't mean you are coming back to target. what nobody know is does inflation get stuck along the way say in the 4% range or something like that requiring the fed to do more that's reflected, that kind of thinking, reflected in what we are hearing from the fed. >> mark, it sounds like you are a little more cautious, i guess we can use that cliche, ca cautiously optimistic.
5:12 am
do you feel the best places to be right now are in the places in the equity markets that are perhaps less prone to economic cycles and more defensive in nature >> absolutely. you know, first, i would say that one of the sectors we like is energy and value. energy has been a tremendous performer this year. we're not saying you have to exit the equity markets. we have a focus on value over growth value, we found, has out performed when inflation is higher than 3% that is certainly the case today. we're also looking at consumer staples and healthcare which is a strong performing sector we think being more defensive in the equity allocation makes sense as we believe that earnings expectations and the earnings in the first and second quarter may come lower as some
5:13 am
of this economic activity slows because the fed's rate hikes start to bite. >> mark, before we let you go, one other place we were looking at these days for obvious reasons is the bond market and treasury prices which is a huge focus here right now, it looked good if you bought 10-year treasury with a yield of 4.2% seeing the yield is 3.8% right now. do we look more to the yield plays? do we look toward investment grade or treasuries with yields at 4% or above as attractive >> we think so you know, the good news for going into next year is that you can get a lot more income from high quality bonds so that is certainly part of the portfolio now. our investors and clients are scrambling a little bit with actually earning income on bonds. high quality bonds
5:14 am
we would also look to investment grade as well here because we think there are some opportunities there. >> mark haefele with ubs global. thank you. when we come back, what the new ceo of ftx has to say about the company as he looked to shepherd it through bankruptcy and more fallout over taylor swift's ticket sales. and why job cuts at amazon won't end with the new year. ceo andy jazzy's message to the company ahead. when "worldwide exchange" returns after this break easy-to-use tools, and paper trading to help sharpen your skills, you can stay on top of the market from wherever you are.

welcome back to "worldwide exchange." at th time for the big money movers. gap swinging to the third quarter profit as sales beat forecast benefitting from strong demand as consumers return to work, travel and social events following the pandemic gap expects fourth quarter sales to be down as volumes slowed at the end of october into november nonetheless, gap shares up 7.5%. palo alto beat forecasts the firm is broadly raising outlook for the year the ceo says customers are
5:18 am
focusing on medium and longer term projects and the company needs to get them to close deals sooner on that basis shares for palo alto up 8.5% applied materials better than expected fourth quarter results. chip maker is guiding first quarter revenue above estimates on easing supply chain issues. those share up 4%. it is important applied materials is viewed by some as a leader indicator for the chip industry. and to the latest in the collapse of ftx. the latest of the bahamas unit to a government controlled wallet for safekeeping one day after it filed bankruptcy. ftx filing for chapter 15 in the bahamas. a provision that non-u.s.
5:19 am
companies use to protect from creditors. all of this as ftx's new ceo oversaw the enron bankruptcy back in the day gave assessment of the failing in the court filing saying, quote, in his 40 years of legal and restructuring experience that he had never seen, quote such a complete failure of corporate controls and such a complete absence of trust worthy financial information as occurred here adding employee expenses were approved with emojis and staff in the bahamas used corporate money to buy homes without d documentation. it used an auditor which it uses in the metaverse let's bring in anita ramaswamy
5:20 am
the intro i read was long because there was that much stuff to talk about. the filings yesterday, i don't know what stood out to you in your mind. >> there were so many things that stood out to me i think it is ironic that the new ceo was the same person brought in after enron this is so similar to that i remember that time we saw a lot of the auditing firms like arthur anderson get in trouble because they were not enforcing internal controls. that's exactly what we're seeing with ftx it is not just the company engaging in wrongdoing, but other parties enabling them to do that as well. just like what happened with arthur anderson fell and i have a feeling the auditors and other parties involved, it will be chip after chip falling. >> so, anita, it is interesting because we keep getting
5:21 am
incremental news and data long these stories. the latest just happened with bitstamp i'm looking at the twitter feed. in the last 20 minutes the exchange that trades many of the cryptocurrencies said we are halting the ftx token and cll. the celsius token on november 22nd, 2022 at 12:00 p.m. utc if you plan on forperforming mo trades, please do so before the deadline this is not anything surprising. these two tokens are from companies that are in extreme distress right now what are you going to expect, anita? what can we expect to see in terms of sentiment with crypto because of develop s like this? >> the inter cryptocurrency
5:22 am
ecosystem is intertwined and all of the companies depend on one another. if one chip falls, they have influence over the industry and it will lead to the link and people will lose trust in cryptocurrency a lot of people were waiting for the moment a lot of people have been saying crypto is a scam it will reflect on the le legitimate companies in the space as wealll when you have someone like sam bankman-fried who is so trust worthy and now you can't trust him, it is like who can you trust? people will question everything the company says the level of deception cwas layered. so many things that ftx said he was engaging with regulators and he was talking to a reporter about his effective altruism was
5:23 am
he didn't care about doing good. he had derogatory things to say about regulators i think it goes to show you can't take anything at face valu value. particularly in cryptocurrency >> all right anita ramaswamy over at techcrunch have a great weekend. >> thank you still on deck on the show. a closer look at the rising risk of drought and technology. big tech and impact it could have an all sectors of the economy.

5:27 am
for many players >> reporter: in just one day, the average data center can use 300,000 gallons of water to cool itself the same water consumption as 100,000 homes. according to researchers at virginia tech estimate one in five data centers draws water from the west. >> there is risk if you are dependent on water data centers are set up to operate 20 years what will it look like in 2040 >> reporter: and that is when this firm purchased by kkr and moved into the phoenix area used a different and more expensive method of cooling. >> that was our a-ha moment. we changed design to go to zero consumption water so we didn't have the risk. >> reporter: realizing the risk, it ran a program on the data center to reduce relative
5:28 am
humidity from 20% to 13% lowering water consumption it implemented this in all of the centers. the overall water consumption is rising with one fifth of the water coming from areas deemed with water stress. it sets a goal last year to restore more water than it consumes by 2030 startsing in te west data centers that lease are bought by private equity firms in search of high growth real estate. >> a lot of players are not as sophisticated and looking at a short-term horizon they are probably not going to be around in 10 or 20 years. >> reporter: the cop27 summit in egypt wraps up one accomplishment was the drought alliance with several countries formed to look at ways
5:29 am
to populations and economies resilient against drought. i spoke with microsoft president brad smith from the summit who said the company is investing in technology to recycle the water in the centers thas and he is bs to meet the goals by 2030. >> you don't think the big tech and data centers are tied to this data center real estate is valuable sector overall. we know the tech is at risk here is it also the value of those centers that is at risk as well because of this? >> reporter: absolutely. a handful of data center reits and a company that might own its own real e own real estate, if it is not operated, that comes gdown and off the center of the balance

5:35 am
half years with the general ticket sale canceled and we are now seeing ticket resellers. some of the prices that we're seeing as they attempt to sell seats range from about $340 a ticket to $28,000. the situation is seeing political fallout as well. minnesota senator amy klobuchar says she sent a letter to live nation alleging ticketmaster is abusing the dominant market positions. this as alexandria ocasio-cortez tweets that the outages are a reminder that ticketmaster is a monopoly and the merger never should have been approved. we have not heard from taylor swift herself. i have to wonder things like this make artists like her with so much clout think about starting their own platform to sell their tickets. >> if there is anyone who could

5:37 am
in china says covid-19 is hurting its results and jd comes out, says covid-19 is helping ecommerce sales. how do you navigate that market? >> the test of the business is the crisis if you look at alibaba, they reported $5 billion in pre-cash flow in the quarter. that is one of the most challenging periods in china in decades. the company as you mentioned repurchased $18 billion of stock. that is 10% of the market cap. you know, just to put this in context, this is more stock that alibaba repurchased this year than amazon in its entire history. the company announced another 50 billion repurchase plan. as you mentioned, alibaba growth has been the headline which is
5:38 am
low single digits. you have to put this in perspective. it was a 30% base last year and so now the base will get better going forward. if you compare this to tencent in the last three quarters, minus 2% minus 3% and then 0% just to put this in context, alibaba's $100 billion revenue business and $100 billion consumer business. there are few businesses in the world with that size and scale a singles day was flat that was $85 billion that is two times amazon holiday season sales the company, i would say with, the company is certainly going to witness fastering growth than alibaba. i would expect growth at 15% over the next three years.
5:39 am
the company sales are not growing as fast, but i have not looked at recent earnings results. the net services line is growing faster i think my focus here is the free cash flow of both businesses which is how to the value a business >> so, sid, we have a few moments left here. let's take us through. the opportunity that has happened over the last year or year and a half in chinese tech stocks getting beaten up has created opportunities. what are your favorite picks what is the most attractive in china tech >> certainly the stock market is expensive. i police of i prefer alibaba the closing price in the ipo
5:40 am
it is still trading close to ipo levels the warren buffett indicator for gdp ratio in china is 55%. in the united states, it is close to 150%. my top pick is alibaba for the fact that it is aligned with the china long-term goals. the company generates a ton of cash i expect that to accelerate when the chinese economy opens mid next year. >> sid, thank you. have a nice weekend. coming up on the show, the world cup kicks off this weekend. for the first time, u.s. sports books are gearing up for a big pay day. shares of farfetch falling ahead of the opening bell after a wider than expected third quarter loss sales coming in lower than

5:49 am
about expanding the reach or addressable market for the betting platforms by putting apps in spanish to reach more football/soccer fans, is fascinat fascinating. how big of a catalyst? soccer is a growing sport in the u.s., but not in the same ballpark or area code or zip code like football or baseball or major u.s. sports how much will the platforms look to soccer as a market for real sports growth? >> that is a great point, dom. we know the demographics that support soccer are growing in the united states. there's a growing latino population in the united states. that's one two, we know that engagement goes up for sports any sport. whether it is football which is popular or baseball or pong dur.
