6:01 am
they're looking for a contraction on payrolls of 150,000. tom: we have the apple report this week. we have amazon, which may be a bellwether. it is just a jumble, and we need to see data. jonathan: in the near term, the hope is that we see some weakness. lisa: we have to look at the data. if bank of america is expecting a contraction into still expecting the fed to hike rates seven times, which actually matters? it seems like it is focused on short-term inflation. jonathan: over the weekend,
6:02 am
goldman sachs laid out a runway to give us a full understanding of what negative real rates mean for this equity market. lisa: david kostin came out and said it would be a 60 point move. this has been the trajectory of a lot of analysts' notes. jonathan: where are we in sports? [laughter] tom: the gloom therefrom lisa was like the gloom of the kansas city chiefs. jonathan: those overtime rules, tom -- what are they about? tom: if we do not have 60 minutes we will turn into a pumpkin. i think they ought to play an
6:03 am
entire quarter. i do agree the roles and the flip of the coin seem so determinative. jonathan: lisa has something to say on tom brady. we are down a little more than a 10th of 1%. it has been ugly for the nasdaq. we are positive by 4/10 of 1%. 178 56. lisa: we have an incredible amount of data. amazon reporting earnings, which will make a difference? the reason why i am particularly interested in this interview is

6:06 am
jonathan: let's talk to russ koesterich. what is the base case based on? russ: the base case is simple. we are in an economy that is slowing. gdp plus inflation are going to be 7% this year. you will have a stronger year for earnings growth than is currently discounted. you may get multiple compression but unless they tighten more aggressively than we think you are not going to have so much multiple compression that it overtakes the earnings growth. it is still a year where stocks are positive. tom: as we saw from apple, how
6:07 am
does blackrock value these tech behemoths benefiting tons of money? russ: this is part of the bold case that you have companies like apple that are cash machines. they are growing their cash flow at an unbelievable rate. this is where dislocations create opportunities. we know a lot of the names that will not have earnings for decades were hit. you have companies like apple who take any other name within that big tech large-cap universe, these are not companies where you are looking at cash flow in 10 years. it is generating tremendous cash
6:08 am
flow in real time. lisa: when do you know it is time to deploy cash? russ: cash is not about trying to time the market. we are running with a high cash balance as well. cash along with a long dollar position has become one of your wrist commit agains -- risk mitigants. jonathan: before you go, friday a lot of people are expecting a negative one. how will we internalize that when the number drops? russ: there is still some noise
6:09 am
in this print. numbers around the holidays have been off. i would not based too much on one print. jonathan: inc. you very much. that -- thank you very much. that could be interesting. lisa: the fact that the people expecting a negative print or not the people who are the least aggressive with their expectations for the fed -- how much of this will be about data that is high-frequency? jonathan: you have this pack of 5, jp morgan, wells, not all of

6:11 am
lisa: the fact that they have not taken it off the table is interesting. it is not going to happen. jonathan: they have not taken 100 basis points off the table either. it is the media question du jour. it is not like last time around. tom: how did you do during the blizzard? jonathan: how did i do? i've seen the snow before, t.k. i went for an alpine trek along canal street. counting down to payrolls friday, this is bloomberg. ♪ >> u.s. senators are close to

you have to go back to march 2020 do have a month as bad as the month of january 2022. getting some headlines from the financial times -- the u.s. has drawn up sanctions targeting vladimir putin's inner circle and their ties to the west. tom: what an odd, clumsy weekend in international relations. away from the thinking about it at 60,000 feet was the almost panic about it nation to nation. jonathan: a tough time for the administration. the ukrainians want to play down

lisa: given the fact that the white house has not come out with a position whether to impose these in the near term -- annmarie: i was strong that senator menendez and senator risch had -- what they said in the interview about that they had the interview together. that showed a tremendous amount of cohesion. the one sticking point i got out of that interview is there is still some debate over what to do about nord stream 2. when it comes to sanctions, we have not seen the administration forthright give their blessing to this package. they said they would be harsh.
6:23 am
today they are talking about the inner circle. it is obvious they weren't to develop a harsh sanctions package against russia. lisa: there is concerned that once you let this out of the bag , what else do have? annmarie: that is part of the conversation republicans and democrats are having. there will be immediate sanctions on issues that have already happened, that russia has heard already against ukraine -- incurred already against ukraine. the second tier would be what is to come.
6:24 am
this would be incredibly harsh on the financial sector. jonathan: by now you are all familiar with the allegations of role breaking by the prime minister's -- rule breaking by the prime minister's office. we understand the prime minister will make a statement to the parliament a little later. tom: it is so silly. i cannot concentrate on it jonathan:. -- i cannot concentrate on it. jonathan: there are two investigations. it will be interesting to see today how much of that investigation is released to the

6:34 am
to address. tom: this is a foundation of fdr " just do something." what do you see as the responsibility of the haves to help the have-nots? susan: there are a couple of things we need to do. one is revived investment. continuing to invest in the business sector is important. as investment flows to emerging markets, now that we are looking at rising interest rates there is a real fear and a lot of that investment money is going to dry up and that will lead some governments in emerging markets
