result of what happens tomorrow. again, high interest rates concerning the market. a lot of people. cheryl: a little beauty to enter trading week. david: all of the indices are up. just narrowly so. once again, the high interest rate will be part of that. interest-rate, tapering in ending, pulling back. that may or may not happen depending upon the jobs report. just barely so. cheryl: one of those days where we still have positive. want to bring in today's front page headlines. the services sector of the economy growing at the fastest
pace. saying that closed the 58 which was well ahead of economic forecasts. david: companies hired 176,000 new workers in august. just about exactly matching the estimate. the numbers coming out a day before tomorrow's big labor department report on august jobs numbers. cheryl: president obama but in st. petersburg, russia, the possibility of u.s. strikes and syria is dominating that meeting . strongly opposing any u.s. action. european central bank president says he is ready to act if necessary to keep interest rates low and maintain the economic recovery. the bank leaving its key interest rate unchanged, 45 percent. cheryl: and higher after announcing a deal to buy bushnell group. the world's largest ammunition
maker. david: also the world's biggest airline, united air, taking back all of the remaining pilots who were on furlough, nearly 600 of them, addressing future staffing needs. a busy day. "after the bell" starts right now. ♪ and let's get right to today's action. chief investment officer. and in the pits of the cme. i want to start with you and interest rates. i said earlier that they are popping in anticipation of the fed tapering. did i get it right? >> that is absolutely right. the market has been on the anticipation since the beginning of the summer. you can see it. straight down in terms of price. straight up in terms of yield. really no pullback which is
surprising given the macro economic. it will be interesting to see how the uptick in volume, the personnel, up ten to 20%. more interest. more interest both in terms of what happens after we move through that 3 percent level and what happens on the back of the perils tomorrow morning. cheryl: this is a big story, but how is it impacting the bond markets, treasurys that we saw today? >> obviously people think that the fed -- the market may be getting ahead of the fed. it would not surprise me if the comments when they do come out and announce the tapir, they are thinking that they may be behind the market. we have seen a move of 140 basis points. i think we have discounted more than half of any potential normalization. david: let's just assume for the momentum that the jobs numbers are not that great tomorrow and
the fed does not taper or decides not to as a result of that. are we going to see at tanking in the rates on interest? >> i don't think so. the market is telling us that beyond the expectation the economy is getting stronger. that is the message that has been drowned out by all of the talk about what the fed might be doing. a bank credit is starting to go a little bit faster on a month-to-month basis. we saw yesterday the article about jumbo mortgage rates falling below the fannie mae rate which tells me that the demand for bank credit and the willingness of banks to lend is rising as the demand for credit comes back. cheryl: yet this could all change when the fed does make their policy decision next week, and we have had some analysts come on and say they are starting to pull back their expectations. it could be as little as 5 billion.
how does the market react in your opinion if that is the number we get? >> well, i think charlie is right. the market has gotten ahead of the fed in terms of its expectation. whether or not the economic data that we have seen, and it looks fairly positive, actually being on this gated by the tilts, the excess of monetary policy. and it works like this. you look at the irs and number today, what to most wealthy people buy? services and lots of them. the biggest benefactor? it is of the people. so when you go and look at that equation you have to be careful about what parts of the economy are actually doing better and how much and how permanent that demand for credit is and whether or not there is a sustainable growth, not only in jobs, but more importantly in income that
actually fuels' longer term sustainable consumption and more importantly, savings that puts the economy on a much healthier longer term low. david: those the numbers, the job numbers used to be a very simple thing. you look at it overall. picking it apart and parsing it. what specifically are you going to look at in terms of the jobs number? you have the overall jobs number, the unemployment rate, labor participation, part-time jobs versus full-time jobs. what number will jump out at you? >> the hourly wage number. we have not seen any strength there yet. that would be right on trend. really have yet to see any growth in wages. that will be the number we watch most closely because that is the number of the pack -- fed is paying very close attention to. cheryl: what sector are you playing right now? for those that are still
interested in stocks, what you like right now? >> bay into aerospace as well. air traffic continues to grow at high single-digit rates. even throughout the financial crisis and recession it was positive. boeing, honeywell, parker as far as part suppliers. we think aerospace as a whole lot of runway. demand for commercial aircraft in china is going to be growing steadily. it is our estimation that aerospace has a lot of runway, even if the economy does not perform all that well. david: you said something fascinating. the most important number is hourly wages, whether they go up or down. and he says that is going to indicate what the fed might do. do you agree? >> absolutely. that was my comment earlier. the important piece of this
equation has nothing to do with jobs but wages. he just said particularly, other parts of the u.s. internationally oriented equity complex, the biggest is coming from the emerging market. actually, the real organic growth over the last five or ten years will come out of the emerging economy. it would show little sloppy and messy and they have underperformed the developing companies, but investors are really looking for value, maybe they should look in that neighborhood. david: i don't know. hard to get any cheaper than argentina right now. some people i sang that has just about bottoms. hourly wages. everyone focus on hourly wages. both guests say that is the number to watch. we will be checking back with you in a couple of minutes. cheryl: well, the war in syria
and the possibility of u.s. intervention. with the president win over opponents? we you will go live to washington. david: plus, the yield on u.s. treasuries jump to a 25-month highs just below 3%. will the fed begin tapering later this month? how can you protect your portfolio? also, we want to hear from you. what can you expect for tomorrow's jobs report? long gone. up or down? your answers coming later this hour. it. ♪ [ male announcer] surprise -- you're having triplets.

almost a 3%. this is a market that is pricing out risk ahead of the jobs report in a complete wait-and-see. david: let's pull back for a second. the fed is buying mortgage bonds in order to keep interest rates low. interest rates have been spiking. could they be stupid -- steep enough that it decides not to taper even if the jobs number is good? >> i don't think so. the scenario that sandra just laid out as the right one. that imbalance between macro risk factors and geopolitical events and the data that actually looks okay. it does not look great. we are not accelerating into the gdp environment, but we are drowning. the risk of something happening seems to me pretty high. the rest of the jobs number coming in also seems pretty
high. david: i have to stop you there. what are they screaming about behind you? >> they are just gearing up ahead of tomorrow. cheryl: really quick. the gold contract. the gold miners taking a big hit on the equities side because gold is hitting levels we have not seen. is that safety play over? says south -- >> they came out and downgraded the industry. this is a market that obviously is telling us that they want to see what tomorrow is all about. anticipating what the next move will be. they put syria on the back burner, but they're is a lot to digest. nobody wants to be long. no one wants to be short.

♪ cheryl: time for a quick "speed read" of some of the day's other headlines. five stories, one minute. pershing square lost over three and a half percent in august. barely positive showing less than a half percent gain. listeners to pandora's online radio service last month, over 1 billion, up 16 percent
compared to one year ago. topping facebook and youtube as the most popular smart phone application. google maps has 54 percent of the global smart phone population. social network ramping up with a premium subscription service. the new service will allow users to access all of the stickers and filters for 1499 per year. madison square garden is paying $125 million to create a new joint-venture, managed artists, music publishing rights and marketing and tv production. that is the "speed read." david: good work. as you notice, yields on u.s. treasuries jumping to 25-month highs after a strong report in the u.s. services sector triggered another round of selling. rates continued to climb. how can you protect your portfolio? joining me now, we need is a vice now more than ever.
how high you think rates will go? >> it depends. right now rates are going up my anyway. it's an interesting little give-and-take. they want to project this idea of economic growth and stability. hopefully things will be good. the market is acting differently right now things are at three. they could considerably go higher even without any move from the fed. david: has the fed lost control of the rates? are they going up right now because they suspect we're going to have a good job number? trying to get ahead. >> i think that's it. that raises an interesting question. i think right now we have seen a bunch of data that is highly encouraging. rates are going to rise. if the fed decides that it does not want to actually tighten policy you have the market saying one thing and the fed saying another which is a dangerous position. maybe the market corrects. if the fed says rates should not
go up, they want. the scenario. it. david: we are looking at the chart right now. that is a scary chart. obviously 3 percent is not as scary number. but when you look at increase, the rate of increase. if it doubles again, we're going to have higher rates one way or the other. in a 96%. how do you prepare? >> if you own bonds duration right now, you just, you know, pay to own a bond and get your interest, that's fine. mortgage on their house, fix the interest. if you're in a bond fund you have to remember that they keep rolling. if you look at the chart from may to july, the rate for the 10-year went from 2% to roughly 3%. when the rates went up only 1%. if you're only getting three or 4 percent and come returns but capital disappears as rates go
up, well, you need to protect yourself. it's important to remember that they are treating these. you run the risk of losing capital. the actual capitol, investment bonds. david: hold on to the bonds that you have that are giving you dividends. what about buying new bonds? obviously stay away from long-term. that is a given. do you buy into short-term bonds? >> there is always a trade-off. your portfolio is a makes. i would never advocate moving everything. yield is not as big. what you do is protect yourself against the loss of capital. you may be one to rotate part of your portfolio. the income is not as good, but you won't take it once rates rise. david: how short? where looking at one to three year treasuries. >> well, it depends how much you can give up on the income. in that kind of take it.
you can afford to make 1% or less. it's a balancing act versus loss of capital and income. david: you want to diversify. you say you obviously don't want all bonds. there are some stocks that kind of act like bonds. >> that's right. diversified portfolio for income. now was a decent time to consider a dividend type stocks. david: for example? >> well, we want to look get some of the big telecoms. things are not so grand. again, if you're going to lose capitol, the devil you know maybe better of the devil you don't know. the need to think about this as an investor. there is in come out there beyond just bonds. and i will also cautioned people. these are not the fixes you make for the next ten years. rates to change. you can always reassess.
it behooves you to do some maintenance on your portfolio. david: and some people, as we know, chasing yields and will go to junk bonds. you say no way. don't touch them. >> well, just because in a high rate environment, the top companies that are out there to my hundred million dollars, 67 percent, that's pretty hard to make. what if the service gets to be like tall%. much harder to make in the default rates will go higher. people fell in love with john bonds because it's not like a 6% debt service payments. it's a lot harder to make a higher payment once rates rise. people need to remember that. the burden on the companies that are embattled, i have to pay high yields. they can't get a lower rate. it will become even harder to achieve that kind of balance between on the bubble financing.
david: in a market that is completely uncertain, one thing that is certain is rates are going up. in just a hint of some solutions. thank you. kendis see you again. cheryl: welcome as we have been talking about, tomorrow's jobs report, whether it will taper asset purchases. next we will find out just how strong or weak the payroll data is likely to be. david: also, of a co-founder, an entrepreneur who has built $3 billion companies, three of them. he will tell us a few things. a next big thing in a jobs market that is continuing to hire big-time. but to you in a moment. cheryl: and my mother made the best toffee in the world.

david: time for a look at today's market drivers. stocks posting modest gains, very modest, with all three major indices ending higher but barely so for the third day in a row. telecom and utilities lagged as treasury yields rose dramatically. materials and industrials were today's top performing sectors. private sector jobs increased by 176,000 in august according to adp employment report. the report fell short of economist expectations of 180,000 new jobs. services industries expanded at the fastest pace in eight years in august as a pickup in demand
encouraged companies to hire. institute for supply management non-manufacturing index rose to 58.6 from 56 the previous month. cheryl? cheryl: today's jobs reports were a mixed bag while initial jobless claims fell, adp said the private sector added fewest jobs since the month of may. david: what does it mean for tomorrow's crucial jobs numbers and the impact on the federal reserve? we have ihs chief economy. nariman behravesh. great to see you again. >> thank you. david: if jobs numbers don't meet expectations or, let's put a positive. if it does meet expectations do you have any doubt that the fed will taper? >> well if the expectations are, what between 170 and 180 -- david: right. >> then i doubt very much that the fed tapers in sent. david: really? >> in particular, yeah. we expect the unemployment rate to actually edge up a notch to, because the, because as you
remember, last month it went down because of a drop in the labor force. that is going to bounce back. in fact we'll get the unemployment probably going back up at least a tick. so i think that will put the fed on hold for at least this, the september meeting. our best guess they will start tapering in september. cheryl: that is interesting. one of the fed officials, i believe it was yesterday, kind of came out and made a comement we were covering in desee, by end of the year the decision to taper is a good one. your conclusion might be correct how they're thinking. at the same time going up a tick on the percentage level, the feds kind of backed themselves in a corner. they have all been in front of microphones the last month or some don't you think if they taper it will be a small tiny bit to save face if you will or is the fed not thinking that way? >> i think the markets expect it will be data driven. so if indeed the, you know the employment numbers are either at
expectations or below, in particular if the unemployment rate edges up, it gives them an out. basically they can say, well, we need a little more evidence on the labor markets. i'm not sure they look that bad if they wait until december. david: let's talk about one data point which is part-time jobs t has been very bettersome in the past six months. in 2013, only one full-time job is being created for every four part-time jobs. that is according to the labor department statistics. that compares in 2012 to six full-time jobs created for each part-time job. these numbers are very, very troublesome. do you think the fed will them into consideration? >> i don't doubt that for a minute and as you probably know there are two things playing here. one obviously is uncertainty about the economy which is still out there. the other is the uncertainty of the impact if you will of obamacare and so, the big question and uncertainty is, how
much of that is affecting these kind of numbers? so undoubtedly the fed will take those into consideration as they think about this. david: uncertainty about obamacare or is it the certainty eventually employers will have to pay more for their full-time employees? >> i should have been clearer. i think uncertainty about the magnitude of the impact. david: gotcha. >> not whether it is happening but how big it is. cheryl: nariman, one thing many economists and fed i'm looking at the majority of jobs created are service sector jobs. these are bartending jobs, waitress jobs. is that enough for the overall economy and does the fed take that into consideration? >> the good news not all the service sector jobs are kind of jobs you're talking about. software developers. they're in the service sector. you have consultants, business consultants, ma concernssies of this world they're in the service sector. cheryl: david mentioned this earlier but the hourly wages data that we track shows that, there is no wage growth and that
does kind of belie to the fact that most of the jobs being created unfortunately are lower-paying job. even construction didn't build in today's adp report which surprised many including me. >> when you've got 7.5% inflation plus or minus he will continue to see, what we call wage decompression or compression i guess is the way to say it, in the sense there will be downward pressure on wages. some is just the fact there is so much slack in the labor market but some of it is, i think you're right, a lot of jobs being created are low skilled jobs right now. so that's a problem. david: by the way, if you are right and if in fact the fed does not taper. what happens to interest rates? do they come back down? because they're anticipating a tapering. >> i was listening to your earlier conversation. we are, our view is that the markets have overreacted and based on fundamentals, long bond yield, say 10-year bond yield ought to be 30 to 50 basis
points lower than it is now. david: interesting. >> once the fed does or if it doesn't you could see a bit of a correction there. cheryl: nariman behravesh. thank you. david: wonderful stuff, nariman. thank you. google bought double check. remember that? for $3.1 billion, with a "b." in a moment we'll talk to doubleclick's cofounder, one of the guys who cashed in on that about the next big wave of technology jobs and why big data is so important part of it. cheryl: and the nfl season officially kicks off tonight with a new emphasis on safety. we're going to be going to illinois for a look at a company on the cutting-edge of the latest technology to protect players. ♪

adding 176,000 jobs in august. the weekly jobless claims continuing declining. it is a fair report but things still obviously are not booming, except for one sector which can't get enough applicants. cheryl: you know what this is. joining us is the mongo cofounder and cofounder of doubleclick which google bought back in waited for $3.1 billion. oh, he also found the guild group. a lot of cred for that introduction. we always hear it is engineers. is there more to the technology sector and hiring than just engineers right now? >> yeah. i think you have, it is more because while, engineers are hard to find right now, because there is so much demand relative to supply, at a technology company, you also have sales and marketing and finance and all of these other functions. so you may have two other employees per tech person or make one-to-one or two to one or
something like that. it drives, potentially drives job growth in a lost functions. david: let me give you a hypothetical. just suppose, suppose i have a daughter or a son who is about 21 years of age. cheryl: just suppose. david: just suppose and they're saying, gee, dad i know the job market is tough. what -- if i told them to go into computer sciences would they be pretty much guaranteed a job in two years? >> when they graduate, i would say yes. so -- david: that is by the way, you got your bs in computer engineering or something like that. >> yes, that is exactly right. so, i think absolutely. you know, you have in that function right now full employment. in fact -- david: full employment in computer sciences? >> i think so. i'm not an economist but it's very hard to find people and -- david: that's what you do. you're always looking for people. >> right. if you want the technology kind of sector of the economy in u.s. to grow i think we actually need more engineers. cheryl: and other side, technology is amazing. it certainly changed all of our
lives. we're addicted to the smartphones and things like that but at the same time, with technology and manufacturing sector has come fewer jobs because robotic, even in gm's plants, for example, they may be building overall, growing overall but they're not, they're not adding the same amount of jobs they were because of robotics, mechanizing of the plant for instance. is that the downside do you think to the technology sector and hiring? >> well, it's a mix and in a sense it is what it is because if we don't innovate others will. so, car companies in rest of the world use that stuff and their productivity will go up and costs will go down and theirs cars will be cheaper. >> online shopping. guild group. >> regardless whether it is good or bad and i think it is good, that's going to happen. so what do you do if you want to grow? i think areas, big area you can get growth in an economy would be the tech sector including information technology and big data and databases which is what
i'm working right now. david: but even businesses that are hiring, like yours, and god bless you, that is great news, you just hired 30 people a month weekly. >> in a week. in one week. david: holy cow! >> we're not gigantic yet. david: even you have to pay higher costs. you have to pay higher taxes. you're in the west village here in new york. tax rates in new york are astronomical particularly for non-corporate entities and you haven't done an ipo yet. how do you pay for the specific costs? particularly obamacare, we talked early they are hour is obamacare, that has to be hurting your ability to hire new people? >> biggest challenging hiring new people is actually just supply, right? we need, we need a lot of engineers. so if we have more graduates from college, if we had, if there were more h1b visas, there is relatively modest number, especially if they're targeted at areas where employment is really good.
so feels more natural then, i think all that would help. on health care i'm not really an expert on it. it feels like every business i worked for it has gotten more and more expensive over time, both pre and postobama. i'm not sure exactly what to make out of that without drilling down on it. cheryl: dwight, i can't wait to see how your next project does and evolves especially after doubleclick and gilt group. these are major companies. >> i'm working my time on mondo technologies. we hired 30 people in one week. david: 30 people in one week. by the way are you going to issue an ipo one of these days? >> eventually. database software market is pretty big market. it is growing. it would be hard eventually not to be if we're successful. cheryl: thank you, dwight. david: congratulations on your success and growth. good stuff. cheryl: all right.
