.50 six on germany's benchmark index. the other big story has been what is happening to bond yields and spain's 10 year yield fell below 1% of the first time ever and still holding below that, but i wanted to show you the spread between two and 30 year government bond yield because this is that the narrowest since april 2015. this yield curve flattening, showing that the ecb bond buying program is boosting that for the longer dated debt. finally, in terms of where we see losses, it will be externally, down for five days in a row, the longest losing streak since may. let's check on the bloomberg first word news. alicea has more. >> hillary clinton as agreed to take part in all three presidential debates. there wasn't much question that

'now to valeants surprised -- not to valeant's surprise. shares are climbing as the company holds firm on their for
10:07 am
your guidance. the ceo gizmo clarity on a new strategic direction. i am looking forward to spending more time talking about a our products, improving patients lives, and less about her bank debt. vonnie: bloomberg reporter listens into valeant's call and it was papa's second earnings call. did he do better? restored a lot to confidence in the approach and tone he took today. there is a lot going on. we are processing it all as it comes. one of the most interesting things is they will renegotiate with an lenders to get more comfortable with their debt. i think the market reacts sensibly to the fact that. rated earnings guidance and that was the expectation, that they might not be able to make it. if they could not make their earnings guidance, does that mean they will run into trouble with their debt? they preempt that with making changes to their debt and that will start the process today.
10:08 am
vonnie: sticking to modified covenant with lenders, the headline, what does that mean and by how much will they want to reduce? what will lenders get? cynthia: for valeant right now, what they need to do is create a scenario where everything does not have to be pitch perfect for them. they have to have wiggle room because the guidance they offer requires a big pickup in the business in the second half of the year. all they may be able to do that, that is a high hurdle for them to meet. it is basically a back half weighted guidance for turning things around in the next five months to six months. what they would davis basically ask lenders for little more room. that will come down to the help of the debt markets and what debtholders really want. they have been pretty supportive of dalliance. in has not sold off to pass an extreme amount as you would expect. there are a lot of things valeant can sell in order to pay
10:09 am
this back if that's what they need. little bit more about where we are with those asset sales. cynthia: right now, a couple in the quarter, but small stuff. they brought in something like what hundred 80 million dollars in upfront payments and more coming down the line, but this is nothing meaningful. they said that could be as much as a billion dollars and stuff they may look at the cell, but it is not clear. they talked about how they are entertaining offers coming in the door, so basically it seems like it is pretty early still, but something that will get worked out over the next year because they're coming into more debt maturity that are due in 2018, so they will have to have more activity. maintaining that forecast, that was unexpected. power analysts reacting? are they skeptical? cynthia: there were a lot of
10:10 am
details on how they will make the second half better, and that comes down to how they will turn things around with this walgreens distribution agreement aat they're using to replace pharmacy they sever ties with. they talked about progress with, but the talked about the things they have achieved in the past week or so, so i think it will take a while before we see this in the numbers. the critical quarter will be next quarter, when we know whether or not they are turning things around with that walgreens program and if they make money on the prescriptions they are selling. vonnie: jim atoll jeep sales down 55% and that is all part of that same -- dermatology sales down 55% and that is all ported that problem. cynthia: things are getting worse in the second quarter, but to be fair to papa, that is or he started and he is turning things around. vonnie: does he have the backing of the board? cynthia: we do not have reason to believe otherwise at this point. vonnie: good for now.

10:16 am
they are not impregnating huge bets around what focus. tom mentioned those are difficult to forecast so we will be penetrating around those key macro factors, so utilities are way cheaper than staples for the and we are -- roe always going to be kind of balance and beat the index, as opposed to making the huge bet on the factors. francine: how do you factor in currencies? strategisturrency has a strong dollar call of the time, so we try to make sure we do not have huge bets and machinery or and chemicals or select staples, select tech, where the strong dollar will hurt earnings the most and make sure they are more balanced against that. ultimately, it is hard to get away from that strong dollar call. francine: two you have a call one pounds? do you even care about what

pounds is doing? ada not that much, we have a screen ofm: hi u.k. exposure, but it is more forgetting bowties and [indiscernible] idoffright from the debiav cigar store, and you go right there down three stores and there are the bowties. i went to talk about multinationals. you have a great historical perspective. it's this nifty-50 pricing or are we not there yet? adam: i do not think we are there yet. tom: i agree. adam: i think we could get there and you talk about spanish this isnd under 1%, and where i think you get forced into u.s. equities because you have a 2% dividend yield and over 2% buy back at the call option under earnings. tom: is the 30 multiple historically doable for a portfolio? adam: i think it is possible.
10:18 am
tom: [laughter] crazy, but ids think in the world we are in, when you have a pile of money and you have to allocate assets, you will like you us equities a lot. hell of aas been a ride and i give you great credit for never saying, go to cash. that is a death. what a ride. market.unloved bull but do tell morgan stanley producers and clients? adam: are simple call is a bull call. you can pick up our things renew our bearish. the simple bull call is bottom-up earnings are pretty low the next couple of quarters and the u.s. looks like the best region in the world. nobody is really positioned for the big up market, no matter what you look at, teachers, options, etc. parker ons adam

earlier today on "surveillance" with tom keene and francine the clock. still ahead, the hottest investment this year turned out to be playing investment-grade bonds. we have a closer look and focus on etf's,. this is bloomberg. ♪
10:20 am
10:21 am
>> live from london and new york. i am nejra cehic. vonnie: i am vonnie quinn. investment hottest is in playing investment is in playing investment-grade bonds, especially those in the u.s. this is looking that etf's and some of the biggest and for
10:22 am
more, let's go to julie hyman. isie: today, lisa abramowicz in and specializes in investment grade bonds and corporate bonds, so this must be happy news for you. i guess your sources are probably pleased about this performance. lisa: it is mixed. on one hand, it is terrific because you have seen an amazing oldestance in the ingress -- investment-grade bond, etf, and attracts more than $6 billion so far this year and return more than 9%, so that is a lot of returns and a really good performance, but you are seeing so much money flowing in from overseas and for people just looking to get something yield on their investments. people are worried that it is getting to be too much. you are seeing companies increasingly by, increasingly sell debt to purchase their own
10:23 am
cells -- to repurchase their own shares. the more money for them, the more you have to wonder, are there enough investments out there to buy with this money? is it worthwhile to keep investing? that is an increasing question that people have. julie: when you look at it from the etf perspective, there is lqd and agg, so talk to me about those two. are there significant differences between them and how have they done this year? lisa: agg looks at corporate and sovereign debt, and lqd focuses on a corporate great debt in the u.s. you have seen it underperformed lqd and that said, it is investing in higher rated that it invest inng sovereign securities, but it also has attracted significantly greater amount of money. it attracted more than $9 billion of debt, a greater
10:24 am
increase in assets than any equity etf and any other fixed income etf in the u.s. julie: kind of amazing, especially considering if you look at the u.s. stock market. at or near record highs, so interesting by comparison. why is this so attractive? is it a matter of yield? people want it however they can get it? lisa: i was another bank of america report by hans mickelson and they had a foreign tracker, or they look at how much of the overnight, when things are coming in, and they are looking at sort of trying to fromstand the money coming japan, europe, and now japanese life insurance as the greatest amount of money flowing toward foreign investments in years, so you have these investment firms that need to find something somewhere and that provides them some income. based on the currency swap and
10:25 am
hedging, it is getting less advantageous for them to invest in treasuries, so they are going down the risk or down the risk spectrum little bit and going into investment-grade corporate debt, which is a little bit riskier but offers more yield. that yield is coming down as they plow their money into it, may right seeing this size at some point, especially the yield on sovereign debt as it creeps upward, but for now, it seems like a never-ending flow of cash. julie: what is the risk? you talk about people getting concerned that so much money has gone in, so the reversal could be dramatic, but what would trigger that reversal? what would cause a temper tantrum kind of reversal? i am hearing from people who i talked to him what they are worried about is into months, when the bank of japan meets again and decides whether or not to add stimulus, whether
10:26 am
it has been working, what if they come back and hint to markets -- it is up, we have no then?mmunition, what all of a sudden, the message will be to markets around the world, central bankers are done and out of it. you will start to see that not only will japanese yields jump but other places will respond in similar fashion, and this could be very similar to the temper tantrum he saw in may and june 2013 and that is the increasing speculation. julie: thank you so much. keep an eye on those. vonnie: julie hyman, lisa abramowicz, always interesting. this is bloomberg. ♪

10:32 am
and tv networks, especially espn. shanghai disney was opened in june, adding to the company's impressive arsenal. disney attracted just under 140 million visitors last year. shanghai they attract 3.5 million or the end of this year. shanghai park is critical to disney in helping boost its international business. disney reported a profit on the international market investments since it began breaking out the business in 2004. as for the movie business, disney could see record box office this year. you were looking at a fixed income which jumped 27% last quarter thanks to "star wars" and the boost. this reporting season, "finding book" could all help with the boost. "captain america" is the national movie -- is the top of the internationally and there is for thisovie scheduled
10:33 am
year. a big profit driver for disney is 45% from the revenue last quarter. this quarter, results may be a mixed bag. it is expected to rise as losses .t espn way on used in has lost almost 2.4 million subscribers since the start of 2016. that translates into nearly 10 million fewer customers then back in 2013. because of the high demand for sports programming, espn charges height affiliate fee. the problem is, disney is affordable to people and bundling their cable packages and/or cutting the cord. we have been looking for numbers and disney results will come after the u.s. closing bell. nejra: let's continue the anused on disney with analyst or fdr capital markets, where he covers the company. he has a price target of $108 a
10:34 am
share, with the market perform rating, which is a recent downgrade. barton joins us from arlington, virginia. give us the rationale behind this downgrade and tell us what you are expecting from them today. >> i have been recommending disney for four years, and for most of the four years, it has been a tremendous opportunity, as the company has resized the studio business with success is star wars, frozen and they had very good momentum in the theme durable, they are very overall. i think the story with disney from here is one of difficulty topping this tremendous performance they have put up in the studio. i think this year, they have 22% share of profits to mystically and i think your be hard for them to go from there, but they
10:35 am
will hang around this level and continue to perform at a great pace. i think the thing part business has been to benefit a lot from the shanghai at launch, but i think there is worry and concern domestically with latin american attendance. i think the orlando market is perhaps softening and i think that the tv networks, espn had a the nbaarter, thanks to finals and they booked the ad revenues, but going forward, there will be a new nba contact, so i just do not see disney growing a whole lot next year, and that makes it difficult for me to recommend the stock, even though i think it is a great source of assets, but i do not know that it outperforms over this you would the pressures. nejra: you have nicely summed up your view on the different areas, but is there one in particular or a couple that you will be focusing on when the earnings come out that might
10:36 am
perhaps change of view in anyway? >> i think where i am interested in is what is happening with the theme parks. i think the shanghai launch, i think that will be terrific. i think it will be the most profitable park when all is said and done. in time, it will be the most profitable disney park will believe. it will have the pricing structure and cost structure and i think it is a great set up. domestically in orlando, i am wondering what they are seeing. the first quarter of the year, we saw that downgrade and what is happening there now with the weakenings, and macro situation with sun america which is an important part of the market. i am interested in their abilities to tell us what is happening. nejra: we were just reporting that espn is 45% of the revenue there for quarter. how much goes to this line are
10:37 am
conditioning help and not decline? iston: i think disney growing low digits, which is the core driver of their cable network segment. i think the abdomen or will be tremendous on the sport cycle. i think that the pace of people canceling subscriptions is not changing much and what we have seen in recent quarters with industry is down a couple percent year over year. disney has seen that and i think some of the numbers are not capturing accurately what disney season relationship with cable companies. i do not think there is a dramatic change in projector he, just a study line -- projector eight, just a steady line. they do not have a lot of affiliates but they do have extra cost pressure, so it will be important to see what the market is for them next year. i think you feel hopeful in this microenvironment, but the secular concerns are kind of
10:38 am
going to be something that weighs on the stock earnings and all the concerns will come up front. nejra: what is your question going to be on the conference call? if we are able to get in there and people jockey for position, i am seeing what they orlando, to say about latin america, the news flow, and to people still want to go to theme parks like they used to? nejra: our thanks to barton for joining us today. later today, bloomberg's david westin will be talking with 6:15 p.m. bob iger at eastern time. do not miss it. hill, a news on william leading company in the u.k., saying they rejected a proposal and aaa -- from 888-rank they rejected the share offer from rank-888.
