and ringing in 2020. parts of the world are already ushering in the new year as the final "worldwide exchange" of 2019 begins right now. >> a very good morning to all and welcome to the last day of 2019 a very happy early new year. i'm in for brian sullivan. here is how your money and the markets are showing up this morning. showing the markets will open slightly higher. the s&p 500, the dow and the nasdaq all on track for strong gains. nasdaq could finish the year with gains of nearly 35% turning to the bond market currently trading at 1.903%. in asia, the markets in japan.
5:02 am
remember they were closed today. japan notching gains of 18% for the year the shanghai composite finishing up about 0.33% and the hang seng is up about 10%, which is less than a lot of the other benchmarks let's look at what is happening in early trade in europe and joumanna bercetche joins us now. >> thank you in line with other markets activity volumes are down about 40 to 50%. not all european markets are open today the picture is some what negative the uk ftse 100 down about 30%s. about 0.4% weaker on the year. the cac flat, the spanish index also down. this is not telling you the full
5:03 am
picture. the stoxx 600 year to date is up 23%. this is the best performance for european markets in a decade the uk ftse 100, starting with that today, we are down 0.4%. year to date, we are up 12%. what a year for the developments general election and change over in leadership. all eyes will be on the brexit date of january 31st new discussions about the future trading relationship something to watch out for the big bounce around 4% what about germany you can see year to date up 35%. also a big performer we have spent a big part of 2019 talking about the manufacturing back drop given the exposure to the trade war.
5:04 am
you can see the german index as well had a stellar performance in line with global equity markets. >> what are the investors going to be talking about in the new year you are coming off perhaps best year in a decade >> absolutely. i mention brexit the story that will be with us for a long time. we have the crucial discussions. certainly, the pound, sterling investors have been watching those closely as well. one thing i would watch out for is what would happen on the fiscal spending side of things nine out of ten in the last 10 years, we've seen europe tighten fisc fiscal spending. perhaps this will be the year they start spending a little more the ecb are conducting a
5:05 am
strategic review perhaps you will see a redefined outlook coming out of the central bank certainly would be a big driver. it may be hard to repeat the performance we had in 2019 for many of the stock markets. i'll throw it back to you. >> some people saying about the markets here looking ahead to 2020 on this final trading day of the year. coo of commerce capital joining me on the phone. good morning >> good morning. >> we just heard from joumanna i feel like the theme over the last year has been such a block buster year here in the u.s., what do investors need to know going into 2020? i think there is a lot of good news it caught everybody but
5:06 am
surprise the stock market is a leading indicator not a lagging one. this big rally is telling us is hey expect increased earnings growth going forward we'll continue to see a rally at least three to six months going forward absent some kind of circumstance or big event. there are a lot of big things going on you had a wage growth, christmas, maybe the first phase of china negotiations. very strong mortgage industry. at least maybe a bottoming out there is a lot of good things going on in the economy to support this market. >> you mentioned errings growth, are fundamentals keeping up with the rally. we have seen the growth of 1.1%. profits expected to grow 9.5%. do you think that pace is achievable >> i think it is getting carried
5:07 am
away in different sectors. it is a good time to be a stock picker and choose wisely where you are going to be if you look at netflix for example or the tech sector which is up 50%. maybe you need to go look at some other sectors that banking looks very strong. it doesn't look overvalued you still get a dividend yield it is still very strong. i think picking and choosing might make some sense. the netflix thing is really going to probably start to play out next year versus disney and amazon and apple and at&t. some of those stocks i'd rather be in than the high valuations you see in netflix >> but disney has done very well are you expecting sort of a pull back from netflix's or taking the best performing stocks of
5:08 am
the decade >> i think some kind of paired trade. we are selling netflix and buying one or the other right now. >> even though they've run up so much this year disney up 31% year to date >> exactly i'm okay with that disney has a strong support and accounted for a huge sector of the film industry this year. almost 50% they've done really, really well netflix has a huge advantage in being a first market mover there is no barriers to answer >> tech as a whole has done very, very well. stock picking has been really easy this year i think 90% of the stock companies in the black what are you doing this year are you rotating out of the sectors that are performed very well into some that vrnt
5:09 am
>> some. i like apple over amazon apple is up 85%. it is not really overvalued. super strong, loaded with cash amazon's pe is way above its historical mark. you can rotate even inside the sector and still be in a lot better shape >> why are you cautious on amazon >> a lot lower pe ratio. >> you don't think amazon going into other business entities will make that stock go higher >> relative to amazon or apple, i would rather be in apple apple has gone up tremendous amount at the same time has a much stronger core fundamental position to support any kind of pull back.
5:10 am

5:35 am
already, so i'm good >> exactly why do we care about the repo market >> one of the things, the repo market is an important part of plumbing in the financial system it is the cost of capitol. the economy and corporations it has been ignored for some time something good did come out of september volatility, which is people did take notice >> you said this could create some risk going into 2020. >> first it started off with open market operations, which it did precrisis. going within the band that is now the 150 to 175 you still have the supply and demand imbalance we have a lot of treasuries issuing to pay for that. the primary buyer of that are
5:36 am

5:37 am
>> let's talk about the macroenvironment those fears have faded away. a lot of wall street talking about the gains for the s&p 500. it was interesting we got a letter that huawei sent to his employees saying that next year would be very difficult. they had to percecontinue we don't know what will happen next year. >> i think you are right mortgage sentiment has become more positive. it underestimates the amount we will see from 2020 with the trade deal and how further they could go a lot has shifted towards trade and election heading into 2020 i think you are right. there is a bit of complacency
