1:01 pm
story so let's start with boeing. the stock has ben a winner in end is played with all of the negative headlines with a reminder. what happens what is so evident here with the chart this actually hit a new high today. it was well on its way back to the levels we have not seen since 2007 only now to see a drop dramatically you can see it now but how does it affect the overall market? it is calculated worth 52 negative it disappoints.
1:02 pm
so if not then the dow would be higher and being a part of the major averages we will continue to follow the story s you can see betty is selling. lori: a recent string ofevents h involved in the triple seven this is the dreamliner 787 but all questions it was the lithium ion battery that caused the fire and had to ground the entire fleet for couple of months. we will bring in noted airline analyst and president and ceo of his own firm. thank you for joining us on short notice. we do not know for certain it was a battery issue. >> we don't know yet. the pitchers don't show anything regarding a battery
1:03 pm
so a fire could start at any place any time it is unfortunate. i would guess is unrelated. lori: why is that? tom sullivan says it is only a matter of time before the issue resurfaces. >> i don't buy that. that is a comment and zero opinion but i don't necessarily buy that. the reality is it is a complex piece of machinery. if it is the battery we are back to start at square one. i think people find something else maybe we should not jump to anything. is a of complex piece of machinery. adam: did they find out what caused the initial fires in the first place? with those four different incidents, did they ever get a caused? >> i don't think they ever
1:04 pm
did. i think basically they thought it was a flaw in the battery by saw pictures and they cannot figure out why but we know they we're doing it but they thought they would fix that peace but we don't want the on negative if we don't know what it could happen again. lori: the shares are selling off sharply. is this the overreaction? >> i think so they have another 1,000 planes on order they have a wide product line this is just one product. adam: but isn't this the future of the transportation like using the model liz is using? >> absolutely going forward to be electric cannot hydraulic, there's a lot of steps forward that will dictate how planes are dictated in the future.
1:05 pm
lori: boeing and airbus put this in perspective of the bottom-line business for boeing. they are still hotly in demand. >> there are things coming up that it would be very competitive, a chinese manufacturers someplace down the line so they cannot rest on their laurels but with the market penetration they're not vulnerable but they cannot rest on their laurels. lori: thank you for joining us with your expertise. and as soon as we hear anything more with the 77 fire with the plane catching fire on the ground but now we will turn back to the market's. jpmorgan and wells fargo beat the st.. next guest earnings
1:06 pm
expectations as well with profits jumping 31% and 19% for wells fargo. dick bovet says he is still not impressed. why is this disappointing? >> in the case said jpmorgan look at the core earnings earnings, the net interest margin and the trading activity, it did not go up but actually they did not do well in the quarter that doesn't mean to say that they couldn't but i was not impressed wear those earnings came from. he cannot argue because mortgages did well knowing they would not do good in the fourth quarter is inappropriate to drop the
1:07 pm
loan-loss provisions to zero when you are not covering your nonperforming assets. until they get was a good quarter for jpmorgan. lori: which would you rather own? >> wills fargo did better the loans did go up a little bit they certainly were able to reduce the of loan-loss provision. and then the expenses went down if you put that on a parallel basis wells fargo had a much better quarter. again, i don't want to freak out because of one quarter but a did not like j.p. morgan's quarter but i did like wells fargo but i do want to own both going for word. lori: amir just getting started 22 out of 81 or reporting next week morgan stanley, goldman sacks, a
1:08 pm
city group, give me the blanket expectation. the looks like a sloppy second quarter for financial >> a think jpmorgan had a sloppy second quarter with good earnings but you will see similar activities. think america should have good numbers because of mortgages were that strongmen bankamerica will do well. a thank you will see like bank of new york and state street do well because of asset management that did well with jpmorgan. possibly a little less exuberance out of goldman sachs and morgan stanley because trading was flat. based on with the earnings are coming from to match that to the different companies have like to be positioned right now at the
1:09 pm
bank of new york melanin in the be less exuberant to look at goldman sacks and work in stanley. lori: stay with us. my colleague just interviewed elizabeth ward and is reintroducing the class d galactic please stay with as we would be curious for your remarks. >> class stiegel was passed during the great depression but it was repealed back in 1989 under the clinton the administration as senator war has now joined with john mccain to bring back glass stiegel they say the financial crisis shows that they're too concentrated and taking too much risk with of

non-core business of derivatives and take a listen to. >> if i could pick in a word that is the 20th century market you're just use language from 1933 you have to tighten it up but it takes the loopholes created and stitches them close. and it is a new kind of financial instruments that did not even exist that express -- explicitly calls them out now but they're not part of commercial. >> you can imagine what street firms and the big banks are not too happy the forum says it thinks diversification can help to reduce risk in a big financial firm. also next week staying on the fed story we have an exclusive first time interview with the head of

1:12 pm
what was the big blowup causing 2008? the independent brokers lehman brothers when entities did you look to to stabilize the situation in the early '90s? it was universal banking company. so let's assume history has a meaning it is just not a joke you forget. if you don't forget history why do you want to create small banks and independent banking firms when we know this is where the crisis developed? lori: you make a valid point. thank you for joining us today and for your time. adam: back to london monitoring the latest from heathrow airport of fire was extinguished aboard this 77 that was parked at the gate

1:38 pm
bankers association reports, you have decline in mortgage application, refinancings as well. how do you understand and synthesize all this data whether or not the housing recovery is now stalling? >> traditional recovery done through freddy, fanny, the fha, mortgage lend something going down when rates go up. it almost looks like a cross. so that part's bad. actually if you saw the earnings announcement from wells fargo today, wells fargo is showing that their mortgage volume is down as well. lori: yeah. >> jpmorgan chase showed an increase, but, a lot, some of that was before the may day massacre. so we'll have to see what the data looks like next quarter for jpmorgan chase to say, they gave almost misleading signal on mortgages. so, it is going to be a lot of investors out there but it is tl consumer, i will tell you that much. lori: we'll have to have an update, anthony, because these factors are really fast motion. thanks so much. anthony sanders.

1:52 pm
performance. thanks for joining us. simply put, what you're trying to design is sort of an angie's list for airline consumers so we could rate the pilots. is that accurate? >> well, it's close. thanks for talking to me today. i think what we're really talking about, is not so much, you know, an app where you are going to sit and grade a pilot's landing on an individual level but there are really no high-end professional standards by which we rank the most important things that our airlines offer. pilots, maintenance folks. if you were to google up world's best airline see a rating 1 to 100 based on international passenger lounges and leg space and maybe in-flight entertainment. adam: are you talking about a rating systems for pilots? at the end of this discussion is that what we're talking about? because my real question is, how do you make money on that? >> yeah, yeah. competition is the engine of capitalism. i don't think what we're talking
1:53 pm
about, we are talking about a ratings system. a professional standards ratings system. a little built of history is in order. back in 2010, debra hersman, everybody is familiar with right now, doing a great job with ntsb invited me to be a keynote speaker at a conference on professionalism in aviation. adam: what did you guys do? >> we determined there were no standards. so the last 18 months or so we have developed those standards and, here's the shameless plug. in the book going -- adam: plug away. >> back to professionalism it lays out those six elements, 23 subelements, et cetera, et cetera. can we rank it? yes. should those things be made public? absolutely but not to shame anyone. aviation is a great industry. what we need to do show the people that are ahead of the pack. how do you make money on that? adam: go there. how do you make money? >> yeah. adam: doesn't sound like myself as a consumer will really be part of that ratings system?
1:54 pm
>> well, no, i think you are. there are a lot of angles in here but think insurance companies. think manufacturers. think, people that are actually, you know, providing suppliers into this. all of those people rely on this core element, i mean the real engine of an airline is its pie lets and its maintenance and its logistics. as these things are rated, people get distinguished one from another, i think what will happen a lot of people will select with their pocketbooks and by developing and objectively managing that ratings system there will be a lot of people -- adam: two questions. don't you open yourself up for exposure for litigation either violation of privacy issues by pilots or mechanics themselves or the airline? >> yeah. i don't think so. and i, quite frankly, you know i don't have a lawyer manage everything that we do in our company. we are going to make our best expert assessments of these various things and we're going to report them. and then if you stand in front
1:55 pm
of a judge and made my best expert opinion i'm completely comfortable with that. adam: all right. tony kern, great quote when you bring up law firms managing. one lawyer is a disgrace. two is a law firm, three is congress. all the best to you, tony. >> thanks, adam. adam: shares of boeing are dragging but off session lows. we're learning that analysts are now speculating this was not a badderry issue. and that may be why the stock is actually recovering. tracy byrnes and ashley webster continue to follow that story. former sec chairman harvey pitt weighs in on the newbie partisan call to break up the banks. ♪ [ cows moo ] [ sizzling ] more rain...

boeing shares are falling after a fire was reported on board of one of its dream dreams at heathrow airport. -- 787 dreamliners at heathrow airport. we'll bring you the latest. ashley: dow in the red off the lows of the session. on track to post its best week in four months. we're looking ahead for a busy week in economic data and we'll tell you what you need to be watching. >> talking about breaking up the banks and bringing back of all things, glass-steagall. former sec commissioner harvey pitt will tell us why it would be bad for banks an consumers. ashley: he is not a fan. let's get down to nicole petallides on the floor of the new york stock exchange. despite the losses as we just said, waiting for a big gain this week. >> it's a great week this week on wall street, right? let's look where we are. dow jones industrials are down 14 points. we approached 15,500. we were two points away from
2:00 pm
there. 44 points away from our all-time record intraday high. we pulled back a little bit here. look at these one-week charts, right? looking pretty good. the major averages are up 2% for both the dow and the s&p. the s&p is up 2.6% for the week and the nasdaq, maybe live charts. the nasdaq is the best of the bunch up 3%. we've had a good run and we've been in record territory for our closes. that's worth noting. we should take a look also as we're talking about the major averages, a couple of quick notes. boeing is weighing on the dow 30, 40, 50 points, depending where it is any given time. you do get in mixed economic news. you saw a little bit of inflation as sentiment was a little lower. ups is weighing on the s&p 500, that's for sure, because they're an economic indicator and talking about slowing u.s. industrial growth. that could be hurting their numbers. they cut back on their numbers going forward. fedex and ups have been to the
2:01 pm
downside. interest rates are pushing up little bit. that is pushing some pressure on the markets. traders were watching markets and looking that it was at the front. plane rather than the back of the news and felt that was good news. back to you. ashley: thank you nicole. we'll see you in 15 minutes. tracy: boeing shares falling as nicole mentioned. they're down 3% right now. at lowest they were down 7% on news after fire at one of its dreamliner jets at heathrow airport. joining us an analyst at davidson. j.b., up until a couple days ago, this stock was the second best performer in the dow. it seems to be teflon, shaking all this stuff off. can it still continue to do so? >> right. think, you know, issues like this, the investors are pretty much sell first and ask questions later. >> yeah. >> at least what we know so far this probably is not related to the battery. in that case the stock probably shakes this off and rebound.
2:02 pm
the reason it has done so well the order flow for new aircraft has been very, very strong in both the narrow body and wide body area and i think that is what i think is driving the stock. ashley: that is interesting, j.b. the ethiopian airliner was parked athlete throw for eight hours before any smoke was defected. -- detected. interesting to see what that was. doesn't appear to be the same battery issue that grounded the whole fleet. throughout all this the stock has remained so resilient is that partly because the boeing is. one of the few games in town anyway? >> we're neutral on boeing. we think there is other ways to play the big backlog in commercial aerospace. that would be other names being affected, precision castparts being one and bea aerospace another. they provide to operators, not the oemss themselves but there are ways to play it. there is ways to get effective
2:03 pm
exposure to aerospace without necessarily owning boeing. tracy: what do i do at that today? do i hold this on and presume the market will shake it off or do i short this thing? >> i think they will make it off. over the us could of the weekend we'll get news flow what the actual cause of this was. i don't think it looks like it was related to the prior problems. so in that sense you probably just hold on. we're neutral on it. i like other names better for commercial aerospace. ashley: what happens, j.b., the faa already in contact with authorities in the u.k. what if they decide, i know what, we have to ground this fleet again and take another look? this is all speculation but what does that do to the stock? >> you know when you look back at the first initial battery problems happen in january, if you bought the stock then you would be sitting in pretty good position whether you own boeing or the suppliers. ultimately with drives it, long term issues and growth in backlog and production rate increases next three to five years. boeing will solve this if it's a boeing issue. but it will solve it.
2:04 pm
we saw that with last battery issue. i think for the most part the aerospace names will still continue to perform, due to that backlog. tracy: just quick. this stock has become a darling of the hedge fund world. does it go back to ashley's point that it is the only game in town? the notion that the dreamliner demand is up is kind of a little crazy to me? >> well, the backlog, the total backlog and boeing and airbus is nearly 10,000 planes. the 77 is only 950 of those or some it is not just the dreamliner where the demand is strong. low interest rates. relatively high fuel costs. that shrunk the economic life of aircraft. you're getting very strong order flow not only from growing regions but also replacement demand. ashley: j.b., does this give a boost to airbus? you mentioned airbus. are they a valid alternative if someone gets nervous with dream liner? >> i think airlines will definitely play these sorts of
2:05 pm
issues off the two manufacturers and it could be but for the most part when you're buying an aircraft you're making a board-level fleet decision, you know. it is not going to be subject to momentary problems like this. but certainly, you know, it doesn't, doesn't hurt. tracy: j.b. groh. thanks for joining us. you are neutral on the stock to reiterate. ashley: the next guest says they're focused on fed policy they're ignoring traditional drivers like earnings, you remember those? we have senior institutional equity strategist for wells fargo. gina, thank you for being with us. that's a good point, isn't it? is it all on the word of the fed? is there any fundamentals involved in this market at all? >> it is hard to see it. i think it is happening at the sector level. you do see sector performance following earnings trends to some extent. a good example is the financial
2:06 pm
sector still producing strong earnings growth and we think will continue to produce strong earnings growth through the year. but for the index as a whole we continue to see negative earnings revisions. companies guiding less in terms of earnings and the market keeps going higher. i think you have to dig deeper to find were the earnings are impacting individual stock performance and sector level performance but you can find it. ashley: so you think the fed will probably, if things stay as they are, will probably begin tapering more likely in december than -- >> yeah. think i we'll get a lot more intelligence as to what they will do and when they do it by the september meeting. by december we'll be in the process of tapering we think. ashley: you mentioned earnings. ups is out with pretty negative guidance today. is that a bit of a surprise to you? >> no. because we've had it all year. over just the last couple months the negative to positive guidance ratio for companies is at record high, nearly five to one. so it has been very consistent we have companies constantly coming out to the extent they're
2:07 pm
giving us guidance, negative guidance. analysts have been marking down earnings estimates consistently all year even since march 31st, earnings estimates have fallen about 3%. constant negative revision on earnings stream, it is not a terrible surprise to see somebody come out today and give us another one. ashley: that's true but on the other hand you have jpmorgan, wells fargo, great stuff. >> yeah. ashley: are the financials where the real power are right now? >> right now within the earnings stream it is coming from financials. positives are coming from financials and consumer sectors, consumer discretionary, consumer staples. ashley: broader economy when banks are doing we, generally the economy is doing well but the economy isn't doing that great? >> i think it speaks to what is happening globally. the s&p 500 is a fairly global index. what you're seeing a pretty large divergence between domestically exposed industry, financials, consumer sector and the like and those exposed more to trend internationally. so, to the extent that you have a focus on the domestic
2:08 pm
consumer, the housing market, the bright spots in the domestic economy those stocks are doing a lot better, those earnings streams are doing a lot better than the rest. ashley: as equity strategist you like all the consumer staples. you mentioned financials. what are you still avoiding? >> we're avoiding materials, energy, dulls steel and technology. most vulnerable. ashley: you say oil prices could pose a bit after head win for the consumer if they remain whererthey are. >> they could. i'm not worried where they are now. we're still in the range for the last two years. obviously not as low as last two months. still in a range reasonable for the consumer to absorb. if you keep getting more upward momentum on oil prices outside of supply and demand dynamics it is probably somewhat constraining on the consumer but not right now. ashley: what about europe? europe has been relatively quiet. i saw the rate on portugal's 10-year jumped to 7.8%, already sending fears, it has been
2:09 pm
pretty quiet over there but it lurking isn't it? >> it is always in the background. every week you get -- ashley: [inaudible] >> it still is. unfortunately what is happening in europe is also increasingly seen in the asian economies and emerging market economies. what we've seen over the last two months is a real breakdown in leading indicators of growth in the emerging markets in particular. that could all come back to europe as its genesis of weakness. as long as europe remains in the sort of tenuous state it is having a negative impact on most of the rest of the world and it is continuing to do so we think through the remainder of this year. ashley: we're out of time. gene ma martin. thank you so much for being here. >> thank you. ashley: thank you. tracy: still to come, surprising move, china has said it will give u.s. regulators documents on potential chinese fraud. huh? what's behind the move from notoriously secretive country? very fishy to me. elizabeth macdonald also thinking it's fishy.
2:10 pm
she will have details. ashley: such a cynic. tracy: total. ashley: what could the return of glass-steagall mean for the industry and for you? we have former sec chairman harvey pitt has strong opinions. doesn't particularly like that idea. as we do this time of the day look at oil. we were just talking about it. up again today, up .8 of a percent. we'll be right back.

i'm arthel negative develop. get you back to ashley and tracy. >> have an ought some weekend. >> you too. tracy: jpmorgan and wells fargo getting paying earnings season off to a good start but will rising rates hurt them long term? we have paul miller. if you dig through the numbers. it was their investment banking arm that locked it upper 18 to 19% of the mortgage banking profits not so much so are these interest rates going to hurt them? >> jpmorgan has a lot of levers to pull. mortgage bank something one of them. not one of the primary drivers of their earnings. they made loot of money last couple years but nowhere near the size at jpmorgan. the main driver for them is higher rates. they want higher rates. they want parallel shift. not only a parallel shift in the curb but want higher rates in general. does the rates today get where they want to be? it does help. but you know, they have to get
2:23 pm
loan growth alongside that that is one thing at the didn't get. they didn't get loan growth this quarter. i don't know if that was their decision. i think that is one of the big disappointments. one of the benefits from jpmorgan is improved credit quart. reserve releases were pretty big. overall improving credit quality was big in the quarter. they came out and said profit from corporate bond and related derivatives is what helped them in last season. consumer side up as well. maybe is that a sign? can we take anything away from the earnings receiver reports. looking in the crystal ball to tell us what is going on? >> why they're running rates are going up because the fed might stop buying mortgage-backed securities or what not. people are getting, feeling better about the overall economy. so these earnings are really rear-view mirrors. they are what happened three months ago. not what happened year-round. investors are concerned what
2:24 pm
happens year out. with higher rates. they're expecting balanced sheet growth s what investors are buying right now. we weren't really expecting it. we knew we could get a lot of noise. trading did well. what we needed was loan growth. tracy: wells fargo. that is nice transition. they saw mortgage apps down. income from as far asking down. numbers were great. on in is it a good sign for housing going forward? >> well, you know there will be adjustments being made. rates were 3.5% two months ago. now they're 4.5, to 4 and 3/4. this will be sticker shot for a month of or two as consumers get used to higher rates. if the rates stay here i think purchase market will offset a lot of refi's that is debatable point that will go on. the purchase market is the same size as it was 24 years ago. 23 years ago.
2:25 pm
there is lot of upside in the purchase market. i don't think investors take that into effect. i believe mortgage banking will continue to be strong. tracy: you make a good point. banks might be willing to make riskier loans. let's talk about if you could put money in financials today, which bank would you go buy? >> i think you can buy jpmorgan or wells. think, they haven't run as much as regionals have run. regionals gotten ahead of themselves. they're trading discount. multiple of two. they're getting double-digit roes. tracy: do i own them today, do i hold on to them or do i sell them? >> i think could you hold on for a bit. you have to be very careful with the 10-year. if the 10-year comes back, think a lot of gains these banks have seen over last month or two will be given back. tracy: you got it. paul, thank you so much. >> all right. stocks have hit record highs this week. also been a big week for those commodities especially, oil, up again today.

2:27 pm
selloff in the soybeans today. take a look at those numbers. not pretty on the soybeans. looks like we'll have a bumper harvest, nothing really standing in the way of that at this point. maybe some weather concerns. but other than that, not the time to be getting into the agricultural commodities, if you want to make money. >> bumper crop means lower prices. all right. jeff flock. thank you from the cme. >> farm translation for me. ashley: there you go. >> we don't learn that sufficient in jersey. big brother is watching your doctor. believe it or not, find out how big data is being used to track your doctor while he works and what it could mean for your care. ashley: look at some of today's winners and losers. the markets giving back a little bit today. there are plenty of winners out there. look at s&p 500. we'll be right back.

glass-steagall. what is your main contention with this? what is wrong with spitting out the banks? go ahead and gamble, just do not do it with fdic money. >> they can gamble with fdic insured money. the cost to consumers will be extraordinary. banks are ruled by safety and soundness standards. tracy: did the exercise sound taking practices? >> they did not exercise unsound practices in connection with

security finances. this bill would not change any of that. ashley: that is interesting. you are saying that it has absolutely no relevance. banks have gotten so much larger. you could argue that by repealing glass-steagall in 1999, they did, as a consequence can't affect larger banks that needed a bailout. >> the fact of the matter is, whether an organization is large or small, it has to play by the rules. it has to operate safely and soundly. that is where regulators should focus their attention. ashley: what about capital
