to ensure the country leaves the eu by the deadline. it is another huge week for european earnings. oil results coming out as well as automakers and banks. ryanair, heineken kicked things off today. ♪ good morning, let's start off with the earnings rolling across the terminal at this hour. ryanair coming out with first quarter profit after tax that was down 21% to 243 million euros. first quarter revenue actually up 11%. 2.3 one billion euros. the full-year guidance remains unchanged. boeing doesn't see the
1:02 am
737 max related cost savings before the fiscal year of 2021. you can see that we are getting some 737 max headlines. it says it is receiving planes just in time for summer of 2020, about 30 of them. planes by the summer of 2020, but those savings won't be realized until the next year. a big drop in ryanair profit. on the top line, the revenue up again 11%. the important thing probably is that the outlook has been held. we will speak with the cfo of ryanair in just a few minutes. we are also getting heineken headlines. coming out with first quarter adjusted operating profits. the estimate was for 1.9 one
1:03 am
billion euros. missing the estimate on inrating profit net revenue the first half, 11.45 billion euros. the estimate was for 11.50 billion euros. if you look at organic revenue in the first half, it was up 5.6% compared to the estimate of gettingwill be interviewed -- we will be getting an interview with the heineken ceo. heineken also saying that consolidated organic beer volume estimate ofng the 3.6%. let's take a look at some of the key figures in the market for this week, there is a lot going on around the world. -- i'main, you have
1:04 am
concerned about the possibility of a hard brexit. continuing ton weaken. 6.972 is the amount -- six 6.8972 is the amount you can buy offshore with u.s. dollars. wednesday, it would be a fairly decent surprise if they cut more. off -- one person out with a column on the bloomberg saying he doesn't believe a two basis point cut is going to happen. let's check on the markets in asia with juliette saly in singapore.
1:05 am
we have been watching hong kong following the protests. weakness in the hung saying index. index.hang seng luxury retailers, developers, casino stock under pressure today. also down. selling out of the futures market. analysts saying you should be watching the kospi through august because earnings could be an impact of that market going to the downside. we are seeing new zealand stocks higher. yields falling on new zealand bonds to a record. i want to show you some of the data we've been watching out of china, pertinent as we lead into u.s. and china trade talks. industrial profits down 3.1% year on year, reversing a 1.1%
1:06 am
rise in may. industrial profits down -- you can see on the producer price index, also fairly flat for june. this is leading many of the market including our own bloomberg economics team to think it is more likely that we will get more targeted stimulus from the pboc. matt: juliette saly in singapore. the u.s. and china had back to the tray table this week for the first time since may. with little expectation on either side of a breakthrough, looming over the talks are the new geopolitical issues and there's no signs that beijing or washington even want to budge on demands. what do you think about the possibility of any forward progress here? are think the chances
1:07 am
andtively low for any big substantive u.s.-china trade deal. the way i would describe the trump administration's strategy or goal with china is for a big, really good trade deal, or no deal at all. i do not believe that the president is interested in a sort of slapped together deal at the last minute. do a deal even though it might not be as far-reaching as necessary. it is either going to be a great deal which material worries -- which materially shrinks the trade deficit with china and addresses the intellectual property theft issues and other ways china has been using the wto, or there is going to be no
1:08 am
deal at all. if there is no deal at all, i think trump will use the harm -- if you want to call it that -- the harm that china has done to the u.s. economy in the election. matt: we see a little bit of a lift onshore and offshore in the yuan. do you think we will get close to seven or eight that point? -- or hit that went? i don't think it is too far off to call. china is struggling. is caught between a rock and a hard place. it was in the middle of a deleveraging campaign when the 2016 elections in the u.s. happened.
1:09 am
the trade war has put china in a very precarious situation. and doesn't want to put the pedal to the metal in terms of fiscal and monetary stimulus because that creates a bigger mess down the road. at the same time, you have many unprofitable companies in china that are simply being able to rollover debt burdens. the ability to increase productive capacity, that model, that export led model of growth, it is well past its peak. what i don't think china will do is inflame the tension further by instigating a one-off evaluation of the rmb. but also as a mechanical result of the direction i think the trade war will head in, china will have to let it weaken further. i think the odds of a disorderly which stemshe rmb,
1:10 am
outflows from china, a relatively low. they have the currency under wraps and under control. perhaps with that does, a little bit paradoxically, is it gives me more confidence they can let the rmb decline in an orderly fashion once the trade war progresses. matt: there's a lot going on this week, from u.s.-china trade talks, everything boris has boj, theerway, the fed. stephen: the global backdrop, whether from a trade angle, overall growth perspective, or certainly from the issue of structural problems. the euro zone is one giant
1:11 am
structural problem. china and many emerging market economies that heavily trade with china have structural issues that have yet to be addressed. in this america first era we are 2020, thoughntil structural problems aren't going to go away quickly. overall, the backdrop for the dollar still remains quite favorable. i think what we are seeing now ys some federal banks merel asking to slow the appreciation of the u.s. dollar. they will not be able to subvert the dollar rally entirely. matt: all right, we will keep you with us. stephen gallo, our guest host for the hour. ryanair, a drop in earnings amid a slump in fares. ofning us now is the cfo
1:12 am
ryanair. i see that revenue is up. are you gaining market share? seeing oure pass-through numbers increase by 7%. we are targeting a full-year increase, 2 million customers. we continue to grow and clear growing strong. 14% peries are up customer, which kept revenue flat for customer in the quarter. matt: this isn't a move to grab more market share, right? there is concern about the theer travel season is that right way to frame it? neil: there's a lot of overcapacity in the german and austrian market. in the u.k., the uncertainty
1:13 am
around brexit. continuing toare grow strongly. passengere cost per is just under 30 euros compared another company come 80% 120% higher wings, than ourselves. the structural advantage allowing us to grow. short-term pricing weakness but longer-term, there's a cost advantage that we have and the strength of our balance sheet means we are in a strong position to participate in the opportunities that will arrive. the low-fare and high fuel environment we are in at the moment, i think there will be consolidations and airline failures which will allow the
1:14 am
ryanair group to participate. matt: in terms of that consolidation, that plus bankruptcies take over -- take out the overcapacity's in the industry? what role does ryanair play? neil: we will continue to offer the lowest fares at the lowest cost. our goal is to hundred million customers by march of 2024. that would give us a market share of about 20% in europe. standout, low-cost operator within our market, covering all point-to-point operations within europe. matt: how difficult has the boeing issue been for you? the 737 max still grounded. any idea when it will get in the air? neil: we are planning at the moment to take our first max in the january, february of 2020
1:15 am
timeframe. we were supposed to take our first aircraft in the spring of 2019. that has been delayed. a are planning to have it in january-february 2020 timeframe. on when boeing get their application in to the , entry back into service of the max. get: but you want to delivery of the aircraft. are you going to be able to fly them with customers on them by the beginning of 2020? neil: i have every expert nation that -- every expectation that once the aircraft is delivered, it is a phenomenal aircraft. it delivers opportunities in
1:16 am
savings. extra seats, fuel-efficient, noise sufficient. every expectation that the customer will love it once it is delivered. expect to get some sort of compensation from boeing for the delays? neil: yes. boeing is working with the regulators but there is an expectation that the cost of the delays will be covered by boeing. matt: let me ask about the cost of the extreme weather. obviously, it has been with us for a few years but i've never heard of cancellations because of heat. how seriously has that effect ryanair? neil: ryanair has been operating a full schedule. goodd full -- we had very on time performance.
1:17 am
we had very minimal impact. we had more issues with heavy rain and thunderstorms than we had with heat. we've been operating with full schedules, over 90% on-time performance in most of our markets in the last couple of days. matt: thanks for stopping by. neil sorahan, chief financial officer at ryanair. coming up, we will speak with the chief financial officer of heineken. you can catch that at 7:30 a.m. london time to see what the dutch brewer is thinking for the quarter and half ahead. tune into bloomberg radio. area.gital in the london this is bloomberg. ♪

1:21 am
break: europe." let's check in how the markets are doing. the equity indexes across asia, some drops. some of that for local, regional issues. the kospi showing some earnings disappointment. down, of course there is the unrest. we are awaiting news from beijing about the handover or the changeover in local government. aboutl have that live at 8:00 london time. in terms of currencies right now, take a look at the yen. 108.58 is what a dollar buys. is falling, continuing to come down.
1:22 am
10-year holding, pretty steady right now. it doesn't look like the markets expect much of a surprise from the fed. today, we are asking a question, when will lower yields stop supporting stocks. you can join the debate and reach out with your answer. we would love to get your could peterhow that out. now, ite, now, and till looks like stocks have been supported by looser yields around the world. let's get the business flash with annabelle drillers. >> the london stock exchange is in talks to purchase the online trading platform. the deal is set to be worth $27 billion.
1:23 am
the lsc said it will issue shares in the transaction. bloomberg lp competes with this company to buy data and information. aemical giant starving had rough second quarter. net income tumbling almost 70% as demand for plastics dried up. the world's biggest oil producer is in the process of buying a majority stake. deutsche bank is probing its client -- probing if client data was compromised after the bank failed to -- it reports about 50 traders were able to access the systems after the first round of layoffs, one reportedly sending 450 messages remotely after being let go. combatants to combine -- plans to combine its business

1:25 am
we've been worried about the risks of a no deal brexit or a messy scenario, like snap elections that would stink the pound. to six month call, given where we are now, doesn't sound exceedingly bold. what i would say for the time being is that there are downside risks to that call. impossible itually think for the withdrawal agreement to be renegotiated between the eu and the u.k. government. even if that were possible, to get it through and ratified into u.k. law. that means we either are going to have a no deal brexit, or there will be an extension. but if we have extensions, boris
1:26 am
johnson will almost certain they have to call elections. the third option, you might say the eu blinks and we have a bridgingd brexit with arrangements. is probablyenario the most intriguing because what it would require on the eu's part is to demonstrate logic and a degree of attention to commercial interests rather than just pure politics. that really is not in the dna of those in brussels. theof the proofs of this is euros, probably the biggest catastrophe in modern financial history, right up there with subprime. the only difference is that this was a political project.
1:27 am
the outlook for brexit going forward is not good. matt: we will continue talking about it throughout the program. this is bloomberg. ♪

matt: this is "bloomberg daybreak: europe." i am matt miller in berlin. china's top hong kong policy office will give a rare briefing in just over an hour's time, just after the eighth straight weekend of protests. police deployed tear and rubber bullets yesterday to clear thousands of protesters out. a bloomberg senior reporter joins us from hong kong. how bad was it this weekend? >> the thing about this weekend
1:31 am
was that it was unpredictable. protests at the airport, then out in the new territories on saturday. sunday, there was a protest that started right here in front of this central building in hong kong. part of it splintered off to a shopping district to the east and some of it through a residential district at the bottom of which stands the liaison office, the beijing representational office in hong kong that was the office that was defaced by protesters last weekend. this weekend, the protesters surrounded by these big barriers containing water, but there were enough protesters that were in their that police decided they had to disperse them with a lot of teargas. then drifted up the hill into
1:32 am
the residential area. they interrupted my videos. i live up there. i had to deal with teargas myself that said, the thing about what is happening is there are a whole lot of staged events up until october 1, which marks national day, the day that marks the establishment of the people's republic of china. but then there are all these splinter protests taking place. it is difficult for police to contemplate how they will control them. they are unpredictable, yet highly organized. matt: first of all, my apologies for your teargas issues this weekend. what do we expect though from affairs kong and macao office in beijing. they will give the first public comment since the 1997 handover?
1:33 am
what are they going to say? david: there's not a lot they can say. remember, hong kong is supposed to be run by a framework called one country, two systems. it is difficult to see how that office is going to be able to announce something like complete withdrawal of the extradition bill which set these protests off in the first place. i suppose they will have to limit themselves to condemning the protests, saying they undermine the framework, complaining that the protesters are hurting the feelings of the chinese people, an often used phrase. perhaps they will condemn the involvement of what they consider to be outside interests, international interests. they are talking often about the united states.
1:34 am
today, the american chamber of commerce came out with a statement calling for the extradition law to be completely completelynd a credible commission of inquiry into what has been going on with regard to the protest. we will have to see. that press conference takes place in a little under an hour and a half. matt: thank you very much. david tweed in hong kong, given us the important connections. these trade talks are kicking off. bes issue, these two, could tied together. we have results out, just want to quickly break the headlines for you. beating estimates, coming out with the higher outlook as well, which may be more important.

1:39 am
a lot of commodity traders are going to be watching to see if there is any news at all on soybeans or how this can play into the trade war. they are saying a lot of damage has been done. matt: very tough news for u.s. farmers. unless of course the u.s. government just gives them subsidies. thank you very much for that. shah in mumbai. i want to mention what is going on in hong kong. the msci and hong kong dropping more than 2%. 2.1% is the drop, heading for its biggest loss in 11 weeks. of course, the unrest has really hurt stocks, but especially property stocks. turning into one of the biggest casualties of the street

united in predicting that jerome powell will cut rates for the first time in a decade. bank of japan policymakers meet on tuesday. that is amid calls to reinforce their commitment to rock autumn interest rates, negative rates. stephen gallo is still with us. let me first to your take on the fed. what are you expecting from jerome powell and company? stephen: our house few is that they will cut by 25. i would not rule out 50 basis points. data,ou look at the u.s. overall, the case for significant monetary easing from the fed is not all that compelling. you are looking at a pretty good growth dynamic overall. investment and trade were a little bit of a drag on q2 gdp. some of the recent orders
1:43 am
suggest investment spending by companies will pick up in the second half of the year from q3 and q 4. i would say the fed is probably in a stance where they will deliver insurance cuts and lean on somewhat weaker or below target inflation. the biggest risks are at the global level. i think once we get through this first phase of monetary easing, the focused among fx traders is going to be to the rest of the global economy. threek one, two, even rate cuts from the fed over the course of the next two to three quarters. given some of the structural

factors faced by many major economies. term, lack of a better the uselessness of these cuts and you are not really concerned about inflation or asset doubles. bubbles? stephen: there is certainly a concern. the central bank in a meaningful way can't take us too far away from stimulus. the chain happened after the global financial crisis and the exigent measures central banks took. yes, that is a risk. one of our preferred trades right now is to be long gold. we think gold will out form on the australian -- out form on the australian dollar terms as opposed to the u.s. dollar terms. andamerican trade policies
1:45 am
economic policies over the long-term, the yield curve. the euro zone is not so fortunate. the banks are struggling much more in the euro zone and that is partially because of the negative rates that are part of .he ecb very much dependent on what happened in 2020. ultimately, that will allow the fed to delay quantitative easing for a long time. i'm looking at a five-year chart of the dollar right now. the bloomberg dollar index. it hasn't changed much in the last four years but we have seen a real pickup from 2014. the dollar strength is one of the things that everybody from donald trump to elizabeth is
1:46 am
complaining about. -- elizabeth warren is complaining about. stephen: you don't want these exchange rate movements to happen rapidly. in thesaid many times past that if the trump administration, the powers that be within the duration -- within the administration. i'm not sure that trump himself. but if they don't realize that the america first agenda is flipping the previous world order upside down on its head and supporting the u.s. dollar, then they are stupid. emily, i don't think they are stupid. that the will be a net exporter of prolia products. net exporting -- of petroleum products. net exporting companies are suffering because of global trade tensions.
1:47 am
all of these factors, effectively, we are seeing the paradigm that was simply before and immediately after the financial crisis. that is starting to go into reverse. that paradigm was originally dollar negative. if it is going into reverse, it has to some degree be dollar positive. the question is pace and timing, and how the fed and u.s. authorities manage the dollar. we may very well be in a situation where volatilities continue to get crushed the dollar creeps a little higher over the next 3-6 months it we are really waiting for 2020. the result of the u.s. election in 2020 is going to be a critical moment for the path of the u.s. dollar. matt: fascinating, for sure. it will be interesting if
1:48 am

1:54 am
playing out. i want you to look at what has happened recently. this is the ratio of domestic tse 100.o the f normally, those international stocks do better when the pound is underperforming. instead, we are seeing domestic stocks outperform, which usually shouldn't happen. some analysts say this is essentially stocks. -- essentially stocks pricing in brexit. this is the term premium for the pound. this tells us how options are pricing the pound at different times. i want you to concentrate on this line, the current term premium for the pound. two weeks out, one month, three months. at three months, this line jumps up.
1:55 am
that is investors wanting more protection three months out, that brexit deadline. the line at the top of the chart is the same time period before the referendum, saying it is pricing in the same risk as in 2016. matt: stephen gallo is still with us from bmi capital markets. we quickly touched on the euro zone. i wanted to get your take on a chart that shows an interesting reversal in bunds. at the same time we showed mario draghi come out and plead for germanola scholz, the there isinister says no stimulus plan. what do you think about this juxtaposition of the ecb and the
1:56 am
biggest economic engine in europe, germany? stephen: that is a great point we have very limited time so it is tough to go into too much detail but you are right to point to the fact that mario draghi is employing government -- imploring governments to engage in more fiscal policy. there are so many moving parts and political fragmentation in pointed zone as you out. theourse, she is from center-right. be good forgoing to the condition. may go to the

2:06 am
