countries. i'm jessica summers, this is bloomberg. industryobal auto biggest alliance has been thrown into turmoil by the arrest of carlos gone. nissan shares and traded at the moment. the cell offers outweighing bids by 1.5-one. nissan says their board will vote thursday on moving him after he was detained in tokyo for allegedly breaching financial walls. the board will also discuss allegations. the nissan ceo, who was his protege, confirmed the arrest. about theable to talk details, but needless to say, this is an act cannot be tolerated by the company and the experts judge this gives them enough reason for dismissal. >> we're joined from hong kong by our chief north asia correspondent stephen ingle. first of all, walk us through what happened.
7:06 pm
stephen: it was an amazing turn of events, we got the news mid evening last night here in hong kong. what we are hearing and what we have learned so far from the ceo at a hastily arranged press conference last night is that he has been detained by police on suspected breach of japanese financial law, this after a whistleblower apparently led to a several month investigation, internal investigation about nissan. thursdayset to meet on to possibly remove gohn as well as board director kelly. the sun saying the two men underreported compensation from securities. during that investigation nissan uncovered numerous other significant acts of misconduct including purposeful desperate this will use a company.
7:07 pm
they said they cannot get into more details of the investigation, but the news is reportinggohn may have understated his income by as much as ¥5 billion, that is 40 formally billion u.s. dollars over five years. his renumeration, his salaries over the course of the alliance have been aanies point of contention earning more than 20 million u.s. dollars a year. they say this is an act that cannot be tolerated by the company. >> thank you. not underscore the seriousness feels allegations, it like maybe there were grievances that were on the line, given everything. next the time was fascinating. corporate scandals in recent
7:08 pm
years, toshiba, took on airbags , we have seenags lots of the sort of thing happening. there is a standard playbook. a tribute to their good qualities or admission of the bad qualities. that is not what we saw, this felt like a regime change. it literally was talking about the long regime and the negative aspects, there was too much power concentrated in one way and. had to be hard-pressed to say anything positive that all about the person running the company for two decades. that to me, was very interesting. bowthey did not make a deep which you would expect a japanese executive to make after this. having these tensions being rumbling in the alliance for a main job in the moment was trying to secure that legacy that is tensions in the future, it feels like it has really boiled down here. howt was really interesting
7:09 pm
he was only talkingg about what good came out ofohn's early years. do we know how much the nissan alliance had to do with this? saying the french company have the best of this relationship. david: i think that is the case. if you look at the alliance as a whole, it essentially breaks at nissan. about half of the net profits in every one of the past seven or eight years has actually come from the share of nissan's earnings. productivity per worker, higher at nissan. nissan has great positions in keep markets like the u.s. and china, where it folks -- focuses on areas like latin america and russia that do not perform so well. share andhave the 43% nissan which means it can control nissan and the french state has a 15% share of reno
7:10 pm
which means in some sense the whole alliance is being controlled or has a veto. that has caused great tension. i think we have seen in recent has try to meld this into some sort of form of merger or long term structure that can survive his retirement, he turned 55 in a few months, we have seen from nissan, anonymous comments to the japanese media at thee great discomfort idea they could merge would change the status quote in a way. after that delay in the start of trading, nissan is trading down 6.5% in the tokyo session as we digest news of the arrest. we also see mitsubishi is down under 7% in the early first few minutes. , and the broader
7:11 pm
context, how political could things get here? alluding we were just to their, there were some rumblings within the nissan camp , there was an inequitable partnership if you will within the alliance as we rightfully said that reno controlled more of nissan men nissan does of them. nissan made so much more of a profit. but owns 43% of nissan, nissan only owns 15% but they also control 34% of mitsubishi. it is a conflict shareholding and the japanese perhaps have been thinking for some time that they are giving the short -- getting the short end of this stick. and as if we have been reporting since july when carlos alluded to the fact that he might be trying to create more consolidation, perhaps a merger among partners, that is not necessarily something the japanese wanted because that would perhaps lessen the even more there say of the alliance.
7:12 pm
>> david, so the question now, healer this will actually some tensions, what are we expecting? that famousentioned line, i stepped in, blood, it would be more tedious to go back then to go forward, it is rather hard to see how you can go back to the status quote after something like this has happened . it is almost more hard to see what could become of this. one option would be, could renault?unch for i don't think so, because it has sort of poisons to the french stake their. could there be a way that nissan unilaterally dissolve their lines, they certainly
7:13 pm
cannot kick reynold out of shareholders. could they develop some of those joint purchasing agreements and r&d agreements as sort of the .edrock of the alliance it is hard to see how it could be done but you would think that after so this has happened, the sort of thing that nissan will have to think about. >> thank you so much. david, here in sydney. they're just finding out that nissan spent several billion yen on multiple -- for carlos, who has been arrested. we are also seeing some bullying since nissan has started trading in tokyo, 1400 times the average daily volume that we have seen for that stock am a it is down the damage half of that would expect looking at the futures of the a dnr session. let's look at what has been
7:14 pm
happening with equities, a bad start to the day, due to u.s. session, shortened holiday week, volumes are lower, volatility will be excessive rated and the , allselloff continues weighing on the broader market. now from singapore, no shortage of negative tech headlines, particularly after this in this part of the world after concerns about the chinese component makers being asked to come back on what they are making. >> that is exactly it, the one is howorth pointing out big of awaiting textures had in asia, it has -- such a large driven selloff because of what happened in the u.s. a e waiting, that anything that goes wrong is bound to impact asian stock in general. a part of it will be the
7:15 pm
sentiment, with the nasdaq falling more than 3% and the s&p 500 dropping more than 1%. there is also the fundamentals of everything we are not so great news coming out of apple, that will impact stocks in asia because there are so many --pliers within asia for a apple. you have suppliers in korea, japan, taiwan, in hong kong. that is definitely that whole carnage that happened in the u.s., that is definitely going to seep into asia today. i think we are already seeing that this morning. >> of course we have the latest headlines on nissan is well. the stock is taking a beating and the market in tokyo as well are falling. aside from all of these news of tech, what else could drag stock further? >> that is exactly it, sherry, i'm not seeing any good news for the stock market investors, there is the tech carnage, that
7:16 pm
will -- play a huge impact in japan. of course, bit coin is not doing grey well, you have trade tensions that are not going anywhere, of course there is also investors coming out and saying, not so great things like ray dolly who said investigate -- investors should expect low returns. no good news out of asia,. >> bloomberg news asia equity leader, not a good day for asian trading if you are investing in any automakers trading in japan. nissan is down 6.3% at this point. 1400 is the average daily trading by him this year, it was a delayed start as the markets struggled to find a match with those cell offers outnumbering the buy offers, mitsubishi is also seeing some of treating there as well, all of this on news of carlos gohn's
7:17 pm
arrest. we had the stark news conference from the ceo seeking to distance the copy from the allegations. 5% decline atoint the start, close to the session lows at this point. the latest report coming from nhk reporting that nissan spent several billion on multiple homes for carlos gohn. we will continue to watch that story, it will be the major story today trading in asia, also watching out for some of these apple suppliers as tech continues to see a downside. this is bloomberg. this is bloomberg.
7:18 pm
7:19 pm
our next guest said it is
7:20 pm
important to look beyond short-term sentiment and see volatility as an opportunity. with us is our guest from hong kong. great to have you with us. we are seeing a lot of volatility and also going to to asian trading. and we had the latest headlines affecting investor sentiment. wouldn't this be the right time to be in the market or shall we wait until valuations fall even more? related selloff. fundamentally strong companies could the look value down. pricee bad news is in the that there is a different story in asia. our view is it is deftly timed to start taking a close look at those companies which we know very well which has a
7:21 pm
proven history of weathering the cycles. have taken a huge a huge selloff in the u.s. and in asia. is this a factor we should be looking at? >> selectively, yes, there are interesting models. some are coming from china. , and know the story valuations are looking more meaningful. during the holy euphoria in 2017, these stocks have come off a lot since then. -- eachme to look at it individual opportunity by itself. at theow time to look sector and stock picking. emerging markets have stopped underperforming compared to the u.s., for example. would you still be buying into the same demographic growth
7:22 pm
story like this time last year? >> yes. our view is when you look at asia within the emerging markets, structural story that will pave the way for the outperformance. the structural side of asia is that is in turkey or argentina that will stand out in the long term. for theseong level economies. in the short term, there will be sentiment due to volatility that will go up. they want to know where it is likely to take off. the slowdown in china never helps. >> volatility when it comes to be yuan. voices,had quite a few even despite what happens to the where itd the yuan and
7:23 pm
can hold on, it will be a strong determinant of how asia assets perform? >> yes, exactly. chinese policymakers are well aware of it. when we talk to companies that are on everybody's minds, for the time being, we are not making a currency forecast. china has a range of measures when it comes to going turmoil. is, you know, moving manufacturing to some of the regional economies and also automating and moving the economy upward. we have seen several measures and play in china which will have a long-term impact. >> and china, the stimulus expectation and now sending some investors into the riskiest stocks. we are talking about docs with negative net assets or losses.
7:24 pm
how dangerous is this? >> yes, there is one it means to be really focused and do your due diligence well and be on the domesticd support from resources like we have in the inm of research analysts china. it is important to stick to the noise and really focus on doing what you have been doing, sticking to it. volatility and uncertainty are the biggest steps for any active manager. they can throw up opportunities. it is important to make sure we have the fundamental story. >> we are seeing the u.s.-china yield vanishing, essentially vanishing, as we see this divergent among policy kick in. what does it say for the yuan and equity markets? >> china is very clearly on this
7:25 pm
policy of easing china is clearly on this policy of easing. a big not saying it is bang like we have seen in the past, but this easing is what we think should fight out and we see the impact of that over the next six to nine months. in the meantime, this is literally being in the eye of the storm where you see the worst impact coming through. we are not seeing a currency forecast. it should point to a better picture in the next six months. now, things are moderating, slowing at the margin and it is something that they are very much aware of. idi: tech and manufacturing, when you talk about the pressures for the supply chain in this part of the world, how agile or resilient or flexible
7:26 pm
is it for these companies to and --their investments in strategies and manufactures to avoid the standoff? >> when you look at all the news around it, manufacturing is a great example. china has already been moving manufacturing to markets, especially in asean. taiwan is an example of that come a beneficiary. that has happened over the last few months and years, not something overnight. that is likely to continue. on the technology side, some of the supply chains are very robust. it is not really easy to change overnight. offers that so it's not easy to replicate the supply chains as people think it is. y: thank you so much for joining us today. now onse, all eyes right the japanese market, especially
7:27 pm
as we see nissan and mitsubishi of -- beinge news arrested. the board at nissan is set to meet on thursday. they have been under investigation at nissan for several months after a whistleblower complained about violations, financial violations. we continue to see the pressure on the markets, not only from the sun, but also from text -- tech stocks. haidi: a huge surge when it comes to volumes as well. to be fair, it is not quite as bad as what we were expecting into a looking for 15% for nissan.
7:28 pm

7:31 pm
there is a degree of uncertainty of how much labor market capacity there is at the moment. not much in terms of anything we didn't know, but certainly talking about trade. he see the reaction, the downside reaction when it comes to the trade wars in this unwinding we are seeing in the aussie, as well as in the kiwi dollars. shery: very interesting to see the rba remain comfortable despite the slowdown. jessica: nissan and mitsubishi opens fell at the tokyo after the arrest of carlos ghosn . fell to its lowest in four years. says there was underreported income and misused assets and he is said to be removed by the board. the committee will look into the structure of nissan's alliance with renault and mitsubishi. >> i am unable to talk about the

that have prompted ray dalio to say you ready for a stretch of low returns. we see the aussie dollar hold steady. we are waiting to hear from the governor later this afternoon. to see will be waiting if there are any clues to see if the currency has bottomed. let's take another look at nissan and mitsubishi motors shares as they look to dismiss both weighingman, the most in the nikkei 225. the thing, checking on terminal, you can visualize that jump in trading volume for nissan shares -- far above the daily average.
7:36 pm

7:37 pm
sales for the fourth quarter came down below estimates. their annual active users fell for the first time since their in 2014 ipo. that will be of concern to investors as well. increased competition, it is a factory-based market in china. and competition from alibaba as well. to face up to that competition, spending on ever structure and talent. they are trying to grow their presence overseas, southeast asia, europe, at some point the u.s. as well. but that comes at a cost. so spending on things like tech and infrastructure and talent doubled to about $500 million usd. the founder of this company is facing clouds because he has been alleged or faced allegations of rape in the u.s. it is something that richard lou
7:38 pm
and the companies, something they deny very strongly. that is another factor to added to the mix. he says these investments should start to pay off in 2019. haidi: looking at xiaomi earnings, different story. what are the highlights? this was really about shipments of smartphones once again for this company. their bets on the emerging markets paying off. indian sales doing pretty well, southeast asia -- and also europe is a strong market. mind, smartphone shipments are facing a contraction globally. there is competition here, date competition in the smartphone market. that's why you see xiaomi investing in premium apartments -- ramy markets to improve their margins. premium markets to improve
7:39 pm
their margins? you have the weaker indian rupee to face up to and the weaker yuan. they booked a lot of their costs in u.s. dollars. the other key question for investors is what is happening with internet services. they did see a tick up in advertisement revenues, and those using their operating systems. the questions will remain as to whether or not this company is fairly valued, given the founder wants to portray it as this internet services company layered on top of a hardware services company. haidi: in terms of the latest batch of earnings, does it tell us much about the strength of the chinese consumer at this point? if you take into account the earnings and what we saw on 11/11, the big singles' day sale, certainly, you get a sense
7:40 pm
that the economy and the data points that this slowing is causing and the consumer is a cautious. we did get that record number for the alibaba sales figures, but that could be because they were stocking up on this purchases ahead of that event. you can see those purchases coal in the next few months. consumers are becoming more -- cool in the next few months. consumers are becoming more cautious. we have seen tax cuts. the headwinds are there. that's why you see these companies invest heavily in that infrastructure coming technology, and shore up their overseas expansion plans. it will be a good stead for companies like xiaomi. for others, it will be more costly. haidi: tom mackenzie in beijing. let's get more thoughts on this.
7:41 pm
we will go straight to bangkok via skype. mark newman with us now. great to have you. you have seen the market reaction across the mountains desk opponents supply -- across component supply. is this something that xiaomi has been immune to? it seemed -- it has seen extraordinary strength. >> it is not due to the slowdown in smartphones at all. there volume in china fell quite a bit, down 20% year on year. the china market is particularly challenging for all of the players at the moment. xiaomi is more than offsetting that with strength internationally. they have done well in india and europe. they are now getting some traction in western europe. gainl of that market share
7:42 pm
is offsetting the weakness. overall, your point about the smartphone being we, they can't -- being weak, they can't-that. they're gross margin for the smartphone business was a bit disappointing, at least to us. think, partly, the have to try progressively to win this market share. haidi: that is their bread and butter. in terms of services, was that an encouraging metric for you? the -- it is really powered by china smartphone users. bulk.s the main
7:43 pm
to us, the key question is overseas internet services revenue, the whole business model is they sell a piece of , at 8%e, a phone or a tv off gross margin, which is about operating margin for a season. and then pop it by selling services. all of the growth now is coming from overseas. however, how much money they are making is the big question. they got the numbers on the for the first time last night. it's about 4%. they are starting to see some progress, but it's really tiny compared to the amount of money they make her phone in china. : completely different story when it comes to,
7:44 pm
underperforming, missing estimates when it comes to revenue. what is going on at the company? jd. don't really cover i don't know how to answer that question. shery: let me ask you about the the chinese we continue to see this impact in some of these companies, like, alibaba, and other tech operations as well. >> yeah, and i think the overall economy is showing signs of slowdown. the overall smart so -- smart phone supply chain come over weakness has seen across the board. a lot has pointed at the trade were is the reason. it's more than just the trade tensions. trade tensions could be part of it, but there has been a bit of weakness across the board for hardware, particularly in china.

7:49 pm
it seems like we continue to see prime minister may appealing to voters since her brexit plan came out. do we know what is happening to that vote of no-confidence against her? will she be able to keep her job? di: looks like they do not have the 48 signatures they need to get that vote of no confidence started. she appeared to be in imminent danger the of the day that it could come to a number of votes anytime. but it looks like that has stalled somewhat. clearly, she is fighting for political life and this is a very fast-changing situation. but what was happening at the end of last week as ministers were leaving and people were saying they had enough votes to start the no-confidence process, that looks like it has slowed somewhat. it once was. asiously, it -- it is not
7:50 pm
imminent as it once was. shery: we continue to see the markets impact of this brexit chaos, whether it is on the pound or on expectations for another rate hike by the bank of england. two years have passed. we continue to see the negotiations. bet the economic impact will against staying? jodi: the u.k. government says they will now way that impact. they were -- will npow weigh that impact. they will do a report on the economic impact. discussing,een businesses very much want some certainty. some of them are backing this plan, saying at least they know there will be a transition
7:51 pm
period. and for many corporations, the hope is that there will be some future relationship with the eu in terms of a customs union and therefore they want to see that possibility. so for businesses, they want certainty. the uncertainty is the worst for them. haidi: the flowchart us to what the possible results could the, right -- could be, right? one of those possibilities could be a second referendum. do we have any thoughts on that? jodi: theresa may has continued to really fight against a second referendum, saying that would be a worst-case scenario. they've got a contract. they've got to move forward. they've got to vote. but we heard from jeremy corbyn who said he would keep that option open. there is a lot of support for this in the public in the u k -- in the u.k. there are hundreds of thousands of citizens who took the streets
7:52 pm
in protest, saying they want a second referendum. that appears to still be on the table. jeremy corbyn saying he would be willing to look at it. but theresa may is saying no way, let's move forward with this deal. and it looks like that is what will happen, at least in the short run. she will try to get this deal through a very divided parliament. so much uncertainty on how this will turn out in the end. jodi schneider in hong kong with the latest on the brexit drama. in the meantime, to another with declines in the tokyo session. an unidentified nissan employee struck a dealhosn with prosecutors. at peopleking familiar with the story to get ofe details on this in terms

then this time of the session. this is actual volume. this is where we should be based on all-year averages. 2000% for this time of the session. let's get more on this as investors reacted what has been happening in tokyo. stephen engle is with us. fluid story. what do we know? stephen: there are so many layers to the story. as to what it means to the i alliance best of the allies the carlos ghosn has been building and consolidating into a possible merger. . we will know much more thursday when the nissan board lands to plansnd perhaps vote -- to meet and perhaps vote to have carlos ghosn ousted along with greg kelly. this led to a several-month-long litigation within nissan. ghosn detained by police last night after this investigation
8:05 pm
was handed over to the police, suspected of reach of japanese financial laws. according to the ceo who had that hastily arranged press conference last night. the nissan board is set. to meet thursday. nissan says the two men underreported their compensation to securities regulators during the investigation. nissan uncovered "numerous other significant acts of misconduct, including personal use of company assets." not a lot of the details or what the financial law breaches were. by kyoto news reporting that hisn may have understated compensation. rishaad: he reportedly had two briefcases. one was his nissan case and the
8:06 pm
other was renault. david: what about the mitsubishi one? rishaad: let's look at this mercilessly. how much of this is about the structure between renault and nissan. nissan has a 15% stake in renault in nonvoting shares where is renault has 43% stake in nissan. n: and the french government has a 15% large stake in renault. rishaad: nissan is much better. stephen: nissan contributes much more to profits. they were not in favor of a merger or a further deepening of knot thatex ghosnian carlos ghosn had created between these three companies. maybe this was somehow a rejection of that. rehaad: is it the
8:07 pm
-japanization of this. -- this? there has been some jealousy, if you will. yvonne: a fault line. : and compensated the directors and half of them are foreigners. lacken: he said nissan of transparency was the ticket because power was too concentrated at the top and repeatedly questioned carlos ghosn's legacy has a turnaround artist. he wondered whether it was the her oaks of one man or the hard work of many -- the her relics -- the heroics of one man or the hard work of many. let me give you some comments.
8:08 pm
i have so many notes. the french economy and finance telling theary nikkei newspaper france plans to remain renault's top shareholder no matter how this transpires. the french government has no plans to share it best to sell its shares. france has -- no plans to sell its shares. the companies have a balanced relationship as it stands right now and the integration wouldn't be right, meaning the further merger. so the french like it right now. maybe that something that the japanese at nissan were growing resentful of. yvonne: and we have a board meeting later tonight as well in japan. meeting we have a board on thursday in yokohama. but renault is likely to meet tuesday night, tonight, in
8:09 pm

8:10 pm

[laughter] >> biting my fingernails, looking at how everything -- you know. it's not worth a lot, but better than some of the alternatives out there. you look at what is happening in brexit, in apec, or with the looming g20 and this confluence of worrying events. w2onde -- wonderful confluence. storm.: a perfect
8:11 pm
david: what kind of market events should we expect? it's not doing well anyway. >> we are not seeing any markets price any of those things in actuality. the chinese stock market is coming up at the moment, purely because, on one hand, people think in china there will be a deal in the g20. they believe there is a huge stimulus coming through. if there is, there will be a huge devaluation in the renminbi. on the brexit front, things will get uglier and uglier, it would appear, in the near term. things will get much worse before gets better. and maybe the fed will get the message that the market is trying to send them with the bongos going down instead of up. yvonne: everyone earlier this year was saying what will be the
8:12 pm
catalyst for things to turnaround? none of those things have turned around. earnings did not help. midterms did not help. what else could turn it around? if the g20 is not the answer, is the resolution the only thing we could get? >> brings it wrong, trade going badly wrong, that may be the -- brexit going wrong, trade going badly wrong, that may be what is needed. david: much more to talk about. be staying with us. paul allen is with us in sydney for an update. nancy pelosi is facing internal opposition to her becoming speaker of the house. representatives say they will not some court her and call for new leadership. pelosi for her

ray dalio seems a parallel between today and the 1930's market. dalio, speaking of ray he says he is not worried about the debt situation in china. he said china can handle a debt crisis and still has the place to invest. >> chinese debt is mostly in their local currency. the amount of debt is very small. now, you are dealing mostly with an internal issue. also, the lenders to china are in their system and like i said, the capacity to handle that crisis by spreading it out in one way or another is quite large and they have the expertise to know how to do that.
8:50 pm
i think when you look at that cycle, there were four cases in which the united states had major debt crisis and they were able to be managed. in themple i gave 1982-1988 crisis was the ability to spread that out. china has that ability. i think everyone is focusing on that and -- to focused in on that and they are not focused on their productivity growth and how they are making changes. i think a bad year of growth will probably be twice as good in terms of that productivity and if you look at indicators , quality ofvity infrastructure and those kinds of things, they have reasons to
