"worldwide exchange" begins right now. ♪ good morning i'm dominic chu. this is a live shot of our nation's capitol where just hours ago the white house and congressional leaders averted a potential government shutdown and default on our debt reaching a two-year deal to lift the debt ceiling and raise federal spending levels.
5:02 am
president trump tweeting the news late last night calling it a real compromise, much more on that big deal coming up. here's how your money and the global markets are setting the day up ahead the dow will open higher as investors away results from a slew of companies. the s&p by 8 points, the dow jones, 82. coca-cola, biogen, lockheed martin, united technologies among the many companies reporting results later on today. you can see one of the busiest days of earnings so far. the bond market is moving just slightly here with ten-year note yields around 2.06% a hair higher on ten-year note yields two-year note yields, 1.833% as well let's go worldwide in the asian trade. we did see a move higher there as well. the nikkei in japan up bay full
5:03 am
percent. the shanghai composite up about a half of a percent. that green theme is playing out in european trading as well. some strong gains there. the german dax up by 1%. the cac in france a half percent. the ftse 100 up about three quarters of a percent. joining me now is bill stone, chief investment officer at avalon advisers. as we talk about the general sense of positivity, near record highs for our markets. a general sense of upswing for many parts of the world, does that mean the markets can take another leg higher >> i think they can. sentiment is not overly bullish. we could say there's a lot of doubters out there i watch the amount of money market assets. we hit new record highs out there for that, too there's plenty of fuel there it's a tug of war between some of the slowing economic data
5:04 am
versus global central banks, we'll see who wins >> so, among that environment with global central banks, they are dealing at this point with the idea that there's a slowdown in the economy perhaps not recessionary, global purchasing manager indices, many measures of service industries, all showing some signs of slowing down take us through how that sets markets up at it stage are they all dependent on central bank intervention because of the slowing pmi levels we're seeing around the world? >> i'd say they're a bit more -- we'll focus on the u.s. a bit. certainly a bit more dependent on the central bank. you won't see the market pretty much at highs with this kind of set up in terms of a slowing economy unless you thought that the fed was going to, you know, reflate it again
5:05 am
when you look back at history, there's a good reason for the market to think that if it playing out as the market seems to be sniffing out, we probably have more upside here >> we have big comments coming up from the european central bank and the fed as well first of all, the expectations are there will be a general easing buy sis any kind of expectation that things could go wrong if they say the wrong thing? what exactly could be the down side what do these central bankers have to avoid doing to scare the market markets? >> i think in the u.s. they have to be careful not to i guess allow expectations to get too far or too many cuts you're walking this tightrope, if you signal too many cuts, the markets say this thing is really
5:06 am
going downhill we will go into recession. there's no one that can save it. then i think you see the market have the difficulty. if you walk the line of two to three cuts here, it's these insurance cuts, it's okay. that's why you have seen at times the fed trying to -- they did it last week trying towalk back getting too exuberant around the number of cuts. that's a positive. the ecb is tougher on thursday they will signal -- draghi does surprise people, so i'm keeping myself ready that they do pull the trigger on thursday and do easing, but easing is coming they already announced if things don't get better, they wo ease with where they're data is at, they'll ease if it's not this time, it's september. >> bill stone, thank you very much >> thank you. major m&a news to get to in the technology industry.
5:07 am
this has to do with mobile, mobile, mobile >> it certainly does good morning apple is reportedly in advanced talks to buy intel's smartphone modem chip business. it includes a portfolio of products and staff worth at least $1 billion while the price is not high, the transaction would be strategically important. it gives apple access to the work and talent behind intel's push to create chips for 5g wireless technology saving years of development on its own. for intel it would shed a business that dragged on the bottom line. the journal says the companies have been talking for about a year they started last summer when int intel's ceo resigned and then talks broke down in apple when apple reached a deal with qualcomm shares of both companies are higher this morning.
5:08 am
qualcomm is down more than 2% in the premarket. new numbers this morning on which tech giant is the top spender when it comes to washington lobbying efforts. cnbc produce errs in washingtond san francisco crunched the numbers to reveal facebook led the field in the second quarter spending for lobbyists with more than 4$4.1 billion that money was spent amid heightened scrutiny on capitol hill around the announcement of its libra currency much more on these findings coming up this morning president trump yesterday agreed at a meeting with the heads of top u.s. technology companies to make "timely decisions on requests to allow u.s. companies to do business with chinese telecom company huawei, currently blacklisted by the u.s. government. even as the ceos requested

hadley gamble is live in the city where the ship started its fateful journey. what can you tell us about the latest there >> u.s. secretary of state mike pompeo weighed in on this saying the united kingdom is responsible for the safety of their open ships in the persian gulf you have heard from our reporting the move for the united states to push forward with the idea of an international coalition that would protect shipping lanes, at the same times it seems as if when the uk needs the u.s. to step up, the united states is content to let them deal with this on their own. let's listen in to what jeremy hunt had to say. >> under international law, iran had no right to obstruct the ship's passage let alone board her. it was therefore an act of state piracy which the house will have no hesitation in condemning. even more worryingly, this
5:14 am
incident was a flagrant breach of the principal of free navigation on which the global trading system and the world economy ultimately depends >> the foreign secretary there with tough word force tehran, calling this an act of international piracy of the seas at the same time it's been four days since this incident took place, just a few miles from where i'm standing if seems as if the united kingdom is hand strung as to what to do next. theresa may is preparing to step down, and she will be followed by a new prime minister. it is all depend dentent on who will be. all eyes are on boris johnson. >> we know the uk has a contentious relationship with iran and what's happening. what can you tell us about the regional response from elsewhere in the middle east to this development and crisis >> that will be interesting to watch. at the end of the day what we
5:15 am
heard in the past from boris johnson, who seems to be the favorite to be the next prime minister, he said he will not be drawn into open conflict with iran, but those comments came before the incident of this ship it's interesting when you look at what's happening in the gcc countries, we heard some tough words from the foreign minister of saudi arabia condemning these actions, but nothing from the uae government and the omanis who often have been the lifeline between the united states and iran in terms of continuing that conversation, the forever rin minuign ministee headed to tehran to continue talks. to london now where the final countdown is on for the uk to choose its next prime minister the announcement is expected to happen in less than two hours time willem marx joins us from 10 downing street the expectation, the polls, everything suggests it will be
5:16 am
boris johnson, but we just heard from jeremy hunt is there a chance he has a shot at this? >>s this still >> there's still a chance. nobody knows until they open the envelope, 150,000 members selecting the new party leader and the new prime minister it's like a primary without a gem el general election. critics will hold on to, as they focus on brexit, the defining issue over the past two years and will continue to be for the months ahead. whoever takes over as new prime minister will have a number of challenges around that they'll have a divided conservative party we had members of theresa may's outgoing cabinet saying they will resign rather than serve under boris johnson. the conservatives have a tiny, very slim majority inside the house of commons a few hundred yards from where i'm standing. that will make it difficult for whoever ends up as leader to get their version of brexit through.
5:17 am
managing the relationship, as hadley was talking about there, between the u.s. and the uk as well as the british relationship with europe as brexit becomes more and more contentious. >>what can a new prime minister do exactly in the next few weeks? could we get the brexit ways back on track? we know boris johnson may be favors more of the hard line brexit side of things, jeremy hunt is seen to be more leaning towards the remaining side of things what exactly will the new prime minister face in the next few weeks? >> you remember when this extension was given to the uk, an extra six months to figure out what they wanted you the of brexit at the time european leaders said we hope you don't waste this time. we had 3 1/2 months since that extension was offered and no real change in the british position because of the uncertainty about leadership boris johnson said october 31st, the uk will lead europe, do or die, come what may essentially saying he's prepared to take the uk out of the european union without a deal.
5:18 am
in the weeks ahead the parliament here is going on its summer vacation. there will be no chance trying to get any kind of change deal through parliament to at least september, a lot of european officials and leaders will be on vacation there will be a challenge as we get closer to that end of october, halloween deadline to get everything in place. willem marx with the latest there on the prime minister elections. thanks for that. later on we will talk about what it means for invest all over the world, the brexit situation. coming up, new outrage over a facebook design flaw that potentially put thousands of kids in danger those details when "worldwide exchange" returns after this my digestive system used to make me feel sluggish

wanted out of this which means it's a good deal, right? >> exactly if both sides got something and both had to give up something to get there. there were a couple parts of this deal, and it's a deal at this point, not a done dell, but president trump and congressional leaders have agreed to this deal. it suspends the debt ceiling through july of 2021 it also raises discretionary spending in fiscal year 2020 and this is important because democrats have long said they want to see equal increases with domestic spending, with middle class priorities, health, financial, the opioid crisis and other things that we see with defense. so they will see significant increases there. that's something that democrats got out of this, but also raising that debt ceiling, essentially, dom, america's

5:33 am
many parts of the curve. ten-year benchmark u.s. treasury note yield, 2.059% the two-year treasury note wealweal yield, 1.833%. we're following a developing story out of the middle east oil prices edging slightly lower at this stage, but overall the tensions between the u.s. and iran are ire following the seizure of a british tanker in the strait of hormuz that after the uk stopped an iranian tanker weeks ago after an alleged sanctions violation joining me now is helima croft, aas soon cnbc contributor we are not prices higher given all this tension around iran and the strait of hormuz >> you're right. it's been a very muted price response
5:34 am
it's amazing last week, we sold off after pompeo said iran would be willing to talk about their missile program, the iranians were out minutes later saying no we are not and now what's happening in the strait of hormuz, and yet oil is still moving there's a view that u.s. american energy dominance means we could have these disruptions. i think we'll get a test case for that theory. i see no off-ramp to this crisis we're in a cycle of escalation as long as the u.s. continues the sanctions pressure on iran the iranian government continues to say we won't negotiate until we get sanctions relief. >> this has been a vicious process in past years, yet the path of least resistance for now seems to be to the down side what would need to happen in the
5:35 am
middle east hypothetically from a tension scenario to get a marked response higher in crude oil prices >> i think what the market is looking for is a physical disruption of supply let's say we have a tanker that's sunk. that will wake the market up i also think if we start to see attacks on energy infrastructure that disrupt supply. more pipeline attacks, a major energy target hit. what could bring us to the brink of war is a different set of stories. i think if we had u.s. troops in iraq come under fire from shiite militias linked to iran, that's a catalyst for conflict. if we have a situation where the iranians decide they'll kick start the nuclear restart, essentially start enriching at levels close to weapons grade in terms of uranium, all of those things are red lines for the united states. a major attack on a u.s. ally in the region that results in multiple casualties, another
5:36 am
thing is that's a red line for the u.s. there's a different red line for oil and a different red line for military conflict. >> other places in the middle east are impacted by what's going on now the responses so far have been cookie cutter. standard responses to the tensions what exactly -- where would you expect the hot bed to be if there was to be a real issue around iran's actions? which member of the middle east would most likely respond alying themselves with the united states >> or which ally would come under attack if the u.s. would have to go and assist? the allies to watch for is anything involving israel obviously. the israelis have been relatively quiet up until now. if we had something involving israel, watch the situation on the border in syria, for example. watch the situation in lebanon again, the other theater to watch is what happens in iraq. we have thousands of u.s. military personnel in iraq, they
5:37 am
are serving in close proximity to the shiite militias if we have an attack on u.s. personnel there, that's a major incident that could bring us to war. we have already drawn down our embassy in baghdad so i think those are the hot spots to watch that could bring us much closer to the brink of a war. again, the market is very focused just on the oil supply story and not really focusing on the bigger security picture. they kind of think of it as background noise, not realizing how close we are to the precipice of a major conflict. >> helima croft, thank you very much for those insights. coming up, we'll have more on this developing story out of the middle east throughout the course of the day. and among our special guests later on, don't miss retired army general david petraeus, live on the halftime report, that's 12:00 p.m. eastern time today, a great interview, a
5:38 am
must-see about what's happening now with the middle east and everything else out there. we're a little more than an hour away from learning who will be the next leader of the united kingdom. the conservative party will announce the winner of its vote by its 160,000 members that person, boris johnson or jeremy hunt, will be declared leader of the party and named prime minister replacing theresa may. but no matter who wins, does the uk market still lose because neither man can avoid a messy brexit scenario? let's bring in david miller for this the investing angle is key here. people seem to shun the united kingdom for what's happening with brexit uncertainty. does that persis latter part of the second half of this year >> brexit is serious it's getting serious it's had a lull and is warming
5:39 am
up now that's not the same as making the uk uninvestable. today's announcement, whoever wins, everything will change and nothing will change. the nothing that will change is the state of the uk finances, the state of the negotiations with the eu. there are plenty of things that can be done from now on. with one new leader in charge we will start to see that sort of stage where promises mi s hit reality. at that point we'll see movement it doesn't make the uk a bad place, and we had three years to get ready for brexit markets discount the event ahead of this and there's clear signals coming through >> is there anything -- is there any such thing as a no-deal brexit no matter what the uk will have
5:40 am
to figure out what to do with certain key business and industry groups with the european block what exactly does that mean if there's a no-deal brexit >> financial markets are telling us that there will be some sort of deal. the basis of that deal is the fact that this is a parliamentary democracy that has been tested over centuries and precedents exist, conventions exist. what we know about brexit and what will happen now, is that this is unprecedented. so markets are taking the view that parliamentary democracy in the uk is strong enough to sort out an answer. it just doesn't know what quite that answer is that's why the pound is at a 27-month low that's why the uk equity market is at a three-point discount to the rest of the world. investment managers around the world are underinvested in the uk, as am i, quite a reasonable
5:41 am
position to be in and to take ahead of all this. that doesn't mean that doesn't generate attractive areas. i wouldn't be at all surprised to see international investors with a bit more certainty w some progress looking at their underweight uk position and starting to work out whether they don't need to now reverse those. >> let's take this conversation across the atlantic. u.s. investors, uk investors, do they need to fear anything that can happen between a possible negotiation on trade terms birat rally between president trump here and whoever the prime minister is in the uk with regard to the u.s./uk trading relationship >> i don't think they should fear it. we've been living with this uncertainty. i would put it in those terms rather than fear so we will deal with whatever comes out of all of this in terms of trade relationships undoubtedly. there's too much at stake for
5:42 am
decisions not to be made, for compromises to be reached. i think in the very short-term the transition of power from theresa may to boris johnson as the favorite, but whoever is going to be the next prime minister, will lead to political fallout in the uk, and if that isn't smooth, it depends on how you define smooth, this may have an effect on sterling. that bothers, i think, me more than what deals may be done in the future and there are plenty of permutations on that side as well >> david miller, thanks for those thoughts appreciate it. coming up, facebook under fire again this time kids are caught in the crossfire. the glitch you need to know about coming up next plus a billboard record set by mariah carey nearly a quarter century ago, it's set to fall. the down low on the details

a number of big technology stories this morning so we asked elizabeth schulze to join us for a game of rapid fire elizabeth, the "wall street journal" saying apple is in advanced talks to buy intel's modem chip business. this could be a big deal >> this could be a big move fo apple shifting some of that production in-house when it comes to the 5g chips. apple is the only smartphone maker that has not introduced a 5g smartphone. this could be a signal that they want to take a step forward on that qualcomm shares are down this would not be good news for qualm after they reached that multi-year licensing agreement earlier this year. >> a potential $1 billion deal
5:46 am
there. speaking of 5g, we can't talk about 5g witho jouout talking a huawei a number of tech ceos meeting with trump to talk about when they can sell stuff to huawei. >> that's right. a handful of chips makers and ceos yesterday at the white house, goggle's ceo at the white house yesterday. ultimately what they wanted to talk about is this huawei entity list and the idea they can speed up the licensing agreements with huawei we heard from these companies they want to continue to be able to do business with huawei and it seems like it's generally heading in that direction. but a lot of questions still about this ban and how it will play out in the longer term. we've seen signs that huawei has had to cut back u.s. operations, we're closely watching global operations and smartphone sauls to see if this u.s. ban is having an impact on other prar s
5:47 am
parts of the world, too. >> that's not the only lobbying going on in washington, d.c. we know technology companies spend billions, now we know who the biggest spender on lobbying efforts is in washington, d.c., right? >> that's right. so this is data compiled by our teams in washington and san francisco, showing facebook is the number one spender on lobbying, at least in the second quarter. probably not surprising given all these privacy concerns we've had with facebook. and we know this likely fine is coming from the ftc for facebook facebook has had its share of scrutiny you can see alphabet was up on that list. amazon is up on that list. ultimately the general sense is
5:48 am
how the regulatory scrutiny will play out on capitol hill and those agencies looking closely at these companies. you mentioned the ftc and facebook, there could be a mu i multibillion dollar fine coming up there what's the latest? >> we're been waiting for this fine they disclosed in their earnings report last quarter they expected a fine of up to $5 billion from the ftc related to that consent decree facebook reached in 22001 00 0 11 facebook is reporting earnings tomorrow after the bell, it would be surprising if we didn't hear something before that we know that $5 billion fine ha been pretty much baked into the expectations for facebook. the question is what kind of fin fines or further scrutiny could it face now and going forward.
