off today. four big banks reporting their quarterly results. but with the fed cutting rates twice this could mean trouble for their profits. lower interest rates mean they don't make a lot of money. michael lee, portfolio management and market strategist is joining us. they make money but not as much as they do with higher interest rates. this isn't good for the banks. >> especially with a flat yield curve. when long-term rates are below short-term rates, that's like a losing money proposition. cheryl: i was trying to find good news in this. we're expecting a rough quarter, just in general for earnings, right. but i was thinking to myself, okay, look, if lower interest rates spurs mortgage loans, more people want to buy homes or more people want to take a loan for a car, that could actually be a saving grace for these guys. >> it's a very tough environment for the banks, not only from a trading standpoint but ey ideally it's the borrow overnight, lend long. when overnight rates are -- cheryl: the overnight rate, the

rate they loan to each other. >> what are they saying about the consumers, what are they seeing in the economy, are they seeing deterioration of fundamentals and this will give us a better look into the broader picture. cheryl: are people paying credit cards on time, are mortgages paid on time, are small businesses going to the bank to say i want to start a company. that all matters when it comes to the economy. the trade war is going to come up with everybody and the first one is jp morgan at 6:45 a.m. this morning. everyone's going to be looking for commentary on the china trade war. what are you expecting? >> jp morgan is one of the only banks that's expected to have a decent amount of revenue growth partially because the third quarter in 2018 was so ugly. the trading environment for the big banks has not been that good. we'll see you how mergers and acquisitions, how is loan growth, are we seeing good loan growth, higher consumer thrown p question and answe-- consumer d.

it's not so much the earnings, it's all in the commentary, about the trade war and the rest of the economy. cheryl: we've got citi, goldman, jp morgan and wells fargo today. wells fargo is going to be a mortgage story, jpm is going to be a credit story. goldman sacks, some of these -- goldman sachs, some of these banks have big pieces in big companies. goldman sachs, uber. some of these failed ipos are going to be a bad reflection on the bottom line, potentially, i'm not saying it is. >> the thing is, if they brought these companies to market, they've already made their money. cheryl: yeah. >> the initial transaction. wework not coming to market. cheryl: wework didn't go public. >> that's a big black eye for these bankers. cheryl: it's a lot of cash, right. the ipo business is sour, that's not good for them either. maybe the bond market will save them. i don't know. mike lee, we'll see. results are today. we'll have you back. thanks, mike. lauren: we have four dow components opening their books

5:24 am
china. phase one of the deal as you mentioned, i think it could be pretty easy to get done. if you look back at may, when things really fell apart, it seemed like they had pretty much already agreed to about two-thirds. it was that one-third left of the deal that threw things under the bus. so that's why i believe phases two and three might be a little harder to negotiate. but phase one shouldn't be too hard to get. the problem is now just writing the checks and agreeing to it in a month. lauren: it should be easy because the sticky issues, the dodgy issues such as forced transfer of technology, intellectual property, that's not being discussed at this phase. i want to go through some headlines. a difference of tone this morning. the u.s. and china on the same page, that coming from the south china morning post. another one, the breakthrough in negotiations should be celebrated, not dismissed. but do you trust this change of tone this morning? our futures are up here in the u.s.
5:25 am
>> i think markets are just responding accordingly. any time there's positive news on the trade front, they respond accordingly. i think there is a fair amount of skepticism, of course, getting to the deal next month. obviously, it is just an agreement in principle right now so a lot of things will need to be put in to text and signed between the leaders on the summit, the sidelines of the apac next month. i think there is positives to take from this. obviously, the removal of tariffs today or at least the suspension is good. therthey're at least talking abt december and whether we could or could not -- obviously, they're not making a decision on december's tariffs. i would prefer them to start talking about the removal of tariffs and actually helping out american consumers before the christmas season comes around. lauren: the december 15th tariffs. >> of course, there's a lot of trust-building that needs to be made between the two sides. lauren: are you surprised that china has taken it this far?
5:26 am
you look at the data coming out of beijing, the latest this morning, factory deflation because of weak demand, consumer prices soaring because of a lack of pork. pork prices up almost 70%. and then hong kong. are you surprised that president xi is playing ball the way he is? >> not at all. obviously, china, they're going to try and be as tough as they can. the way they kind of sell this, it's foreign coercion, it's the united states being unfair even though it is china's unfair trade practices that we're trying to address. it's not a big surprise. we have to take this week's economic data out of china with a grain of l salt. there's a lot of macroeconomic problems they're dealing with right now as well. lauren: riley walters, thank you for trying to explain it all to us. 15 months in and we're basically where we started with the trade talks. riley, thank you. cheryl: trade certainly still has got the markets eyes this morning. there's optimism that things are kind of moving forward, dow up

5:31 am
a new face. reports say michael bloomburg is considering a 2020 run. good morning, guys. robin, your response to these reports that mike bloomburg is telling his allies if joe bidens is out, he steps in. seems a little far-fetched. what do you make of this? >> that's a big if. i do not see joe biden dropping out any time soon. he's still leading in the top three and, look, i know him personally and we call him fighting joe for a reason. i don't think he's going anywhere, cheryl. cheryl: we're looking at new polling. a poll that came out yesterday has warren ahead of biden, 27% to 30%, so she's ahead which is interesting because what she does tonight on stage is going to be fascinating. she's either going to go after trump or she's going to go after biden. what route do you think she takes? >> i think she's going to take a
5:32 am
bifurcated pathway. the democratic primary seems to have made 2020 about president trump. i have said, you turn spite a ia personality debate about trump, you're going to lose. elizabeth warren will talk about her quote, unquote, slew of policy proposals, but if you look at them, which i have, she's going to raise taxes on the middle class in order to do what, a green new deal? i don't think she'll be able to bifurcate this position where she goes after trump and tries to defend her policy positions. cheryl: i wonder if she'll go directly after biden. i think there will be several shots tonight at president trump, that's going to happen for sure. it will be interesting to see how they interact with each other. robin, i want to bring this touo your attention, this joe and hunter biden scandal going on, does anyone take a chance and
5:33 am
bring up hunter biden tonight, do you think? >> if there's one person i expect will go there, it's going to be tulsi gabbard. we've seen her do it before. i think she may go there tonight and she's got kind of a chip on her shoulder for being out of the last debate. she's threatened to stand this one out. she's got something to prove tonight and i think she may bring it. cheryl: i mentioned this earlier in the show, a couple of make or break names tonight, she is one of them, is tulsi gabbard and beto o'rourke is one of them. they're going to up the stakes for the next debate in november and tulsi gabbard is one of those that's in trouble. how d do you think p sheeha shes tonight. >> i think she will go for broke. the lower third of the democratic primary right now, they don't have legitimate policy positions that go across the entire plat forel.
5:34 am
platform. the poll said 76% of the democratic electorate wants to impeach president trump. what can she say about that. cheryl: i didn't mention julian castro, tulsi gabbard, beto o'rourke and klobuchar, they're not where they need to be for the november debate, those are the four names i think will be interesting to watch. what are you expecting. >> i think that. i think julians castro will play it safe this time because he was sort of all over the place with that last one. klobucharless also has done well just by playing it safe. cory booker has got to break out and do something other than being mr. nice guy and give us some real -- some proposals, just something of -- anything we'll take at this point. cheryl: maybe get over those rehearsed answers he seems to be giving a lot. >> yeah. he's got to do something better than that. cheryl: it's going to be interesting. >> i'm excited. cheryl: pressure is on tonight.
5:35 am
it's going to be a pretty good debate tonight. we're all going to be watching. thank you for weighing in. lauren: with congress back to work, the impeachment push resumes. michael mckinley, a former top aiaide to secretary of state mie pompeo has been asked to testify behind closed doors tomorrow. he resigned last week. democrats are investigating trump's suggestion that ukraine investigate the business dealings of joe biden's family. cheryl: wework is in a race for emergency funding and reports say it is pitting its hope on, i mentioned this earlier, jp more b began. a roughly -- morgan. a roughly 5 butte billion dollag option is their top choice. wework's bankers are pitching investors on what would be one of the riskiest offerings in recent years.

how the mighty ipos sometimes fall. lauren: the eu's chief negotiator for brexit says a brexit deal could be reached this week with the british government vowing to work around the clock. rango bearidge joins us now. good to see you. how is this possible that we could have a deal this week? is it a deal taking shape for the irish border issues? >> well, it's clear that both sides are attempting to look like they're making compromises. the key compromise from the u.k. is the prospect of a border in the irish sea or some type of parparticipation from irish in e eu cus customs union. it's just headline bingo at the moment. lauren: it's funny that on one hand we say a deal could be reached and yet we could also have a scenario where we have a new prime minister for great
5:37 am
britain next week because on saturday by law boris johnson, the prime minister, must vote to extend brexit. but if he doesn't do that, there could be a no confidence vote and thereby you can get a new prime minister next week. this is crazy. >> well, it could get a lot worse than a new prime minister. the reareality is the law that s boris to seek that extension on saturday has not been tested before. it is possible they will not seek an extension. that would put us in a constitutional crisis and we could have a vote of no cough dense, a -- no confidence and it could go to the court. the pound sterling is trading solidly up over the last week. there's a lot of hype at the moment for sterling and the price. lauren: i've been calling sterling the brexit barometer. i think you agree. ranco, good to see you. thanks for the perspective. cheryl: of course, global markets are always tuned into
