5:04 am
that the government here has ordered all state offices and public institutions to remove foreign pcs and software within the next three years the policy is dubbed 3, 5, 2 because the apparent goal is to replace 30% of foreign tech in 2020 50% in 2021 and the remaining 20% the following year so analysts have been estimating that this could mean that as many as 30 million pieces of hardware would have to be swapped out. and that that could potentially have a negative impact on u.s. tech names, such as dell, hp and microsoft. now the move also comes amid concerns of a tech decoupling, though it's unclear how quickly that would happen because even the chinese names that are meant to replace a lot of that u.s. gear still use a lot of u.s. components and technology. also, chinese companies are far behind when it comes to software and finally the chinese

government has pushed these kind of self reliance initiatives before back in 2015, for example, it dropped cisco and apple from the state-approved purchasing list, but still those companies do a lot of business here courtney >> very interesting. these are things we have to continue to watch especially as it may or may not impact the price of those shares, as you said, this is a little more complicated than it sounds at first blush. eunice, thank you very much. well, back to the markets. a big week ahead including the fed's latest two-day policy meeting. the expected first trades of oil giant saudi aramco overseas quarterly results from adobe, lulu lemon and more. art hogan, thank you for being with us here today this is a pretty big week not to mention that december 15th deadline is very close for what may or may not happen with the u.s./china trade talks eunice brought us interesting information about china saying, look, we'll take away some of the u.s. hardware pieces from our commuters, sort of another
5:06 am
shot fired >> so when we look at everything that lines up this week, it's a busy week that we usually don't expect to have in december we're thinking, wow, we had the jobs number. we can cruise into christmas and start focussing on the new year. you really can't you have a cpi coming out, uk election coming out and the u.s./china trade deal, probably the largest of all those thing as we look at the fed meeting, we know what the fed will do and that's nothing the commentary will be similar but when we look at what's going on in the deadline with china, the president has thrown us into a frenzy as to where do we really stand on trade and does the administration think it would be better to take this all to the election or would -- would they desperately like to get good news. i think it's the latter. i think we need to get something done i think the administration wants to get something done and core graph good news around trade because of the election cycle and get to the december 15th deadline and say we're pushing
5:07 am
that out because the talks remain constructive. >> what happens then to the markets? if you think there will be something positive, something constructive, what are the markets expecting? >> well, two pieces to that. so the markets expect that so there's some of that good news is baked in and for better news on trade, from this point going forward, there will be no escalation. that to generate positive economic data, there will be a life time there. a modicum of disappointment in the first quarter that we get this behind us, this phase one deal and work towards a larger deal but still seeing disappointing manufacturing numbers is probably going to have a market that pulls back a bit but not until the first quarter. it will take a while to digest this and say, okay, we finally got that phase 1 deal. from here on things don't get worse. we're not worried about escalation, but it's going to take a period of time for companies to start making decisions about actually putting capital to use, building plants and the types of cap x we haven't seen for about 18 months. >> we're in december this is a really important time to look at the consumer.
5:08 am
obviously they're out there shopping i know we spoke before the show started i can't believe it's december 9th i feel behind. how important is getting this consumer data continuing throughout the holiday season to be strong as sort of this lynch pin for the economy? >> you know this this is your beat. you know this better than anybody, i think but the consumer has been impervious to a lot of that noise around china the consumer doesn't get hit with the latest tariffs start in the first quarter or so, and we continue to see the kind of labor numbers we saw this weekend, we have low energy prices, relatively low inflation, quietly rising wages, consumer can sort of battle through all of the things that are really affecting corporate america. corporate america is saying there's a great deal of uncertainty. we're not going to put forward expenditures the consumer has done the opposite and remains resilient i think that remains the case as long as those things built those thing rts for the consumer, my house is as much as it was worth
5:09 am
last year, slowly rising wages, i think it will ride out this storm. i think consumer confidence is what's been driving this economy. i think it's going to slowly transition sometime next year over to some cap x spending which has been flat largely since the middle of last summer. and i think that's going to be the next leg of this rally the economic data probably starts to improve but not to the back half of next year. >> we had a little bit of a scare last december i think for the markets when things really sort of took a turn for the worse going into that christmas eve trading day. any chance we see something like that again >> no. that was one of the amazing year over year comparison, right? where were we last year? nowhere close on u.s./china trade, the fed tightening and talked about tightening three more times this year that's the big delta in between where we were last year and this year the fed eased three times. they're probably not going to do anything for a while, but if you were to guess which way they have to go next, it's probably
5:10 am
more leaning towards ease. i think the bar for them to raise again is much higher than the bar is for them to lower again. that's the biggest difference. the economic data streamed both domestically and globally were a lot different than the fourth quarter last year. we're probably in a better place. everybody i talked to whether christmas party or walking down the street, they're saying is this december going to be like last december. i don't feel like the pieces are put in place to say that. >> art hogan, thank you for playing this out for us as we go into year on end. when we come back, more pushback about amazon's latest announcement about a real estate move in the big apple. one description of the mass demonstrations in hong kong over the weekend. and later, jeff bezos is warning for silicon valley around working with the pentagon a very busy hour still ahead when "worldwide exchange" returns.

5:34 am
everything, but this is how we're going to do it we are going to support the department of defense. this country is important. >> joining me now cnbc contributor of the american enterprise institute jimmy, thank you for joining us here this morning. >> good morning. >> it seems like bezos comments perhaps targeted at google after they decided to end their deal with the u.s. over the drone videos that used artificial intelligence and getting some of that backlash, of course, we know that amazon did not win the contract that jedi contract. what's he trying to do here? is this a political maneuver trying to play both sides of the argument for the u.s. government because we know amazon is contesting the fact they didn't win that big deal. >> right certainly i think amazon would like to be seen as a patriotic, national champion company going forward. they had a lot of problems with the trump administration i think more broadly, bezos is making a point if big tech overall doesn't want to be regulated, heavily regulated
5:35 am
because there's new urge to regulate these companies, they don't want to be broken up, they want -- if they want to be seen as national champions, they have to do business with the pentagon if they don't do that, they'll be subject to far more cries to be regulate and unbroken up. it's an untenable position for america's largest technology firms to not work with the defense department bezos is a smart guy, he realizes it. that's what he was saying last night. >> it's very interesting because we just don't often hear from jeff bezos so to hear from him and hear from him in a stance that was fairly firm at least the words that he used, i thought, was quite interesting. >> no. definitely listen, the president seems to have a problem with jeff bezos and amazon so obviously has to be careful about what he says, but this is exactly the message he should be saying both on behalf of amazon and big tech overall they have a big problem with washington, d.c. and it's going to get a lot worse if viewed as being anti-american going forward. >> so, i mean, it's funny that
5:36 am
amazon shares, of course, aren't moving much on this and losing that big contract with the pentagon perhaps was less truly about the money and more about sort of the pride and winning this deal. do you think that -- >> the money is always good. >> money is always good. what was it, 10 billion over 10 years. think about all the money that amazon has and the enterprises it's building in both cloud and of course the retail side that it has going on here so really what is at stake here for amazon when it comes to working with the government from a business standpoint, beyond just trying to be patriotic, doing the right thing, to prevent the government perhaps maybe from digging into them as an anti-trust situation? >> well listen, big tech companies overall have a problem, you know, with both sides of the aisle, democrats and republicans. amazon has a particular problem with republicans and i think -- listen, in a way sort of what's good for big tech
5:37 am
will be good for ammazon if they put forward the image, we're not the people invading your privacy, we're not the people where foreign governments use our platforms to interfere with elections, we are what you thought we were a few years ago, the crown jewels of the economy. and if america does well, we'll do well. and if we do well, america will do well. i think this is really head speech last night those comments were a long-term investment in our fellow americans seeing them as big pluses for the economy so, please, don't regulate us to death. >> well, we'll move on to another topic here for you, jimmy. unprecedented trial that could test the federal government's role in deciding the future of a major corporate coalition of 13 states and the district of columbia led by democrats attorney general are suing to block the $26 billion planned merger between t mobile and sprint the deal that would combine the country's third and fourth largest cellular providers
5:38 am
federal anti-trust officials all appointed by president trump already approved the deal earlier this year. some pretty big potential implications here not just for this deal but going forward. but i guess we'll start with this deal. what do you think this could potentially mean for the outcome of sprint t mobile. >> yeah, listen. obviously this isn't a done deal and states attorney generals have been looking at things on anti-trust very differently than what we have seen in washington. i'm always asked, what's going to happen if democrats take the white house and congress, if elizabeth warren is president. i would look carefully at what's happening at the state level with these states attorneys, not just with anti-trust but also issues such as privacy law, how we're going to regulate sort of the sharing economy with labor regulations, it's a much different world at the state level. what you're seeing happening there may be a pretty good indication of what you may see in washington, d.c. if we have a
5:39 am
change of political control in washington >> i mean, how closely do you think deal makers or even companies looks to potentially do some deals are watching these talks? what could be the broader implications for future mma? >> for a number of decades in this country we have been very pro mna. we haven't stopped big anti-trust actions this is -- listen,ly look at this very closely. this is exactly the sort of thing that could indicate a see change, is really going to approach mergers and anti-trust. i think this is a pretty big case. >> you mentioned previously elizabeth warren and sort of her proposals about the idea of blocking some of these big deals. there's still many players in the democratic field how seriously does the market, do companies need to be listening to some of these proposals, which would really change things very drastically
5:40 am
from where we are right now. >> i would look less at the specific details of any proposal but more directionally where it's going and both among democrats. listen, there's no friends here on republican side there's just a lot more skepticism of big companies. there's skepticism whether they care about our privacy, skepticism about whether they're squashing innovation so, we're going to see probably more skepticism and more actions both at the state level and i think eventually at the federal level if democrats take power. >> so we're going to move on to this other topic with you, jimmy. big bets on some of years' most high profile companies are being big flobs from weworks to juul firms and 401(k)s probably yours have faced steep losses on these investments. cnbc diedra bosa has more on these unicorn write downs. let's listen. >> startups have been getting
5:41 am
funding from some of the biggest mutual funds this year some of the highest flying names have flopped, institutional investors like fidelity left with major valuation markdowns as well. according to data from pitch book the top ten mutual funds collectively held wework shares worth nearly $600 million in the first half of the year fidelity, vanguard and jackson national are just some of the names that placed lofty valuations on their holdings only to have to mark them down as much as 75% after the companies botched ip-o attempt another unicorn flop was juul once valued at $38 billion in the private market fidelity and american funds held shares in the startup valued at nearly $1.3 billion. according to fund disclosures, that was marked down to less than $070 million after juul's valuation was slashed. ride sharing is another area drawn the interest of mutual funds both as private and public companies. put capital into several of uber
5:42 am
later stage rounds fidelity upped its stake in uber since it went public and now the second largest institutional holder of the stock, according to fact set. fidelity also led lyft series i round at $14.r5 billion. that company now has a market cap of $13.4 billion question is, do some of these high profile markdowns make mutual funds reconsider their unicorn strategies back to you, courtney. >> thank you very much that's the perfect question. so obviously i know these companies do an awful lot of research and homework trying to make their investment decisions, but they have gotten burned by the high profile names that diedra just went through for us, jimmy. does that largely change their strategy going forward >> i don't know. listen, as long as economy continues to generate these sort of pretty exciting technology companies, there's going to be a huge incentive to want to participate. that's what we're eeing.
5:43 am
there's also a regulatory incentive to participate one reason these companies have been sort of staying private for so long and these evaluations have been going up is because of government regulation at the end of the obama administration. it would not surprise me if, again, democrats take control. there's a lot more regulatory impulse there that they may take a look at what's going on with these unicorns, these big valuations which overshot and perhaps wonder whether these money managers should be investing in these companies, whether they should be allowed to stay private for so long and not be subject to public scrutiny i can see that as an area sort of the government will take another look at that. >> it's just so interesting if you look at each of these companies, wework, uber and juul have one large identifiable problem but it's not the same problem from company to company. >> no. listen, these are still relatively young companies we know with big ambitions
5:44 am
and in these cases, at least in two of these cases there's sort of a big regulatory issue where they have a problem with government you know, uber, to pick that there's a problem with labor law, how should these drivers be classified as employees and contractors. there's sort of two big government issues they have to deal with. and those sorts of issues affecting these unicorns going forward, again, if washington decides it wants to regulate more heavily you'll see a lot more of that. >> not to mention that safety report that uber put out that was pretty shocking numbers. >> that was noticed in washington people noticed that safety report. >> i don't know how you couldn't notice it whether you're a regulator or rioter for goodness sakes. that was pretty eye opening. thank you for being with us. we'll have you back some time soon. >> you bet, thanks. coming up, disney absolutely dominating the to 19 box office.
