Grassley opts for finance chair, Graham poised to lead Judiciary Committee

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley announced Friday that he wants to serve as the leader of the Senate Finance Committee in the new Congress — a move that puts Sen. Lindsey Graham directly in line to become the Judiciary Committee chairman.

“Looking ahead, at the Finance Committee, I want to continue to work to make sure that as many Americans as possible get to experience this good economy for themselves,” Grassley, R-Iowa, said in a statement from his office.

Graham, an ally of President Donald Trump, would be poised as chairman of the Judiciary Committee to usher Trump’s judicial nominees through to their final votes on the Senate floor. And he could potentially be tasked with overseeing the nomination of Supreme Court justices if any of the nine high-court judges — two of whom are over 80 years old — retire or die while Graham is chairman.

Graham, R-S.C., said in a statement, “If I am fortunate enough to be selected by my colleagues to serve as Chairman, I will push for the appointment and Senate confirmation of highly qualified conservative judges to the federal bench and aggressive oversight of the Department of Justice and FBI.”

He added: “Finally, I will continue to seek common sense, bipartisan solutions to major issues facing our nation.”

In terms of seniority, Graham is technically third in line in the Judiciary Committee majority’s rankings. But the No. 2 lawmaker, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is retiring at the end of his current term.

Hatch, who currently leads the Finance Committee, said in a statement that the Senate panel “will be in good hands with Senator Grassley at the helm.”

He added: “Chuck has a proven history of leadership at the committee and knows the ins and outs of its sprawling jurisdiction. I am confident Chairman Grassley will carry out a robust agenda that will build on tax reform’s recent success and continue to make progress in the health care, trade and oversight spaces.”

Senate committee leaders are elected before the start of each new Congress by the majority party’s conference.

Former Navy SEAL shares 3 lessons to help parents lead at home and at work

“If you’re helping your kids,” says Willink, “you’re hurting your kids.” “That’s not to say that you should let your kids fall, fail and be in danger,” says Willink. But parents can step in less often when their children struggle with chores and tasks. Instead, parents should reframe these moments in their mind, thinking of them as important chances for their children to hone life skills. “But I will allow a SEAL to run a training mission where maybe they will fail, but no one will get hurt and

Former Navy SEAL shares 3 lessons to help parents lead at home and at work

“If you’re helping your kids,” says Willink, “you’re hurting your kids.”

“That’s not to say that you should let your kids fall, fail and be in danger,” says Willink. But parents can step in less often when their children struggle with chores and tasks.

Instead, parents should reframe these moments in their mind, thinking of them as important chances for their children to hone life skills. “If you jump in and you do it for them,” says Willink, “what you’re actually doing is literally taking away the ability for them to develop.”

Willink says this idea holds true for leaders in any situation. If you constantly do everything for your team members they will never learn to do anything for themselves.

“As a leader in the SEAL teams, am I going to let a junior leader go out on a mission that they’ve planned poorly and let them fail and let them get someone killed? No,” says Willink. “But I will allow a SEAL to run a training mission where maybe they will fail, but no one will get hurt and they can learn.”

“In order to grow,” he adds, “you have to have some discomfort and you have to have some small failures.”

JP Morgan wants to lead tech IPOs vs Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs

JP Morgan wants to lead tech IPOs vs Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs

Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs have long dominated the technology IPO world, with one of them winning the lead spot on almost all of the past decade’s biggest offerings. That list includes Facebook, Twitter, Snap and Dropbox.

J.P. Morgan Chase has been a persistent number three. For the largest U.S. bank by assets, that’s no longer good enough.

Heading into what’s expected to be a blockbuster year for tech IPOs, with Airbnb, Uber, Lyft and Pinterest all potentially on the 2019 docket, J.P. Morgan has a mandate from on high to break up the Morgan-Goldman duopoly and start nabbing its share of deals.

“We’ve made huge progress in Silicon Valley,” J.P. Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon told a small group of reporters last week at a roundtable discussion in Silicon Valley, where he was surrounded by some of his top bankers in the region.

The bank is aggressively pitching venture capitalists across the Bay Area. One of its main points is detailed on a slide showing that IPOs perform better when J.P. Morgan is at least the co-lead, according to investors who have seen the data but asked not to be named because the discussions were private.

J.P. Morgan is also hiring commercial bankers to service venture-backed startups, specifically those with direct-to-consumer business models, in ways that have typically been left to smaller, more niche firms like Silicon Valley Bank. The strategy is to build relationships with start-ups as early as possible and outmaneuver Goldman and Morgan Stanley to become a tech company’s go-to bank.

IPOs are typically underwritten by a number of firms, with each finding investors to buy the shares and then splitting the fees paid by the company. The top bank, recognized by the coveted “lead left” spot on the prospectus, does more of the work around pricing the deal. It also gets paid more than the other firms and positions itself favorably for future transactions after the company becomes public.

Jeremy Siegel: With tech down for the count, a 'surprise' move could lead the market higher

Investors rushed out of tech, trampling other sectors along the way: Expert 7 Hours Ago | 02:47

The stock market can “absolutely” go higher even without technology stocks leading the way, Wharton School finance professor Jeremy Siegel told CNBC on Friday.

Tech stocks, which have delivered the best returns in recent years, have been hammered lately. October was their worst month since 2008.

“We might get surprised by [investors] moving into some more dividend stocks even in a rising interest rate environment because bonds wouldn’t be good and people who don’t want the risk of tech might say, ‘Hey, I want stocks that have had long-term good dividend performance for income,'” Siegel said on “Closing Bell.”

“That might surprise us in 2019, to bring back value after this tremendous long-term run in growth.”

U.S. stocks closed down Friday as fears of an economic slowdown, sparked by falling oil prices, weighed on investors. Tech stocks were heavily hit, leading to a 1.7 percent decline in the S&P 500 tech index. Amazon, the worst performer of the group, fell 2.4 percent.

In all, the five most valuable companies — Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Alphabet and Facebook — lost a combined $75 billion in market value.

Siegel said whenever there is a rotation from one sector to another there will be “choppiness going forward.”

He also said rising yields, “the biggest immediate threat” to the market, will also contribute to that volatility.

U.S. Treasury yields fell Friday after the Federal Reserve announced the day before that it had decided to keep the federal funds rate unchanged. Bond yields move inversely to prices.

However, the central bank is expected to raise interest rates in December amid potential trade disruptions and a slowing economy, Siegel said. He noted that most estimates for fourth-quarter gross domestic product are under 3 percent.

In the long run, he still thinks stock valuations are really attractive.

He advised investors to “sit pat” because “there are good values out there.”

— CNBC’s Lauren Feiner contributed to this report.

Here's the mental trick this introverted Duolingo exec uses to lead effectively

Since its launch in 2011, language-learning app Duolingo has been busy.

The app, which provides free language education through games and interactive lessons, is the largest language learning platform and most downloaded education app worldwide, according to the company. In 2017, the company said revenue grew by 1,300 percent to $13 million, according to CNBC, and this year, it projects that revenue will hit between $30 million and $40 million. It’s current valuation is $700 million, according to Pitchbook, and it has attracted high-profile investors like Ashton Kutcher and Tim Ferriss.

Helping lead the company to such success is vice president of product Jorge Mazal. As a leader at Duolingo, it’s part of his job to interact with all kinds of people, but Mazal considers himself an introvert. So he has a mental trick he uses.

“I think there are unique challenges to being introverted as a leader, and what motivates me to get out of my shell, to talk to people, is I try to be a leader that serves,” Mazal tells CNBC Make It.

“I think about what their needs are, what I can do to help them be successful in their job…it helps me knowing that I’m not thinking about myself or being selfish, helps me get out and be helpful to others.

“And that’s my approach to leadership: Find a purpose or a mission that will inspire you enough to make you come out of your shell,” he says.

Fundstrat chart analyst: Washed out tech stocks will lead the market in a year-end recovery

Technician says these are 3 tech stocks to play for a year-end rally 19 Hours Ago | 06:44

Investors should concentrate and then capitalize on the year-end bounce in technology stocks, Fundstrat technical strategist Robert Sluymer told CNBC.

“You’ve seen a wash out on the technology trade. It rebounds. It leads the market higher in the year end,” he predicted on “Fast Money” Wednesday.

Sluymer points to stocks like Microsoft, Apple, and Intel, which he expects to lead the market for the rest of 2018. He also sees upside in Adobe, Salesforce, Google-parent Alphabet, and Amazon, which “all collapsed” in October.

Apple and Microsoft are the two top-weighted stocks in the S&P 500 and in the Nasdaq 100.

The S&P 500, which fell nearly 7 percent during the October plunge, made back more than half of that decline this month as of Wednesday’s close. The Nasdaq 100, which lost nearly 8.7 percent last month, has gained 3.4 percent in November.

“We don’t want to see new relative lows,” warned Sluymer, who has 25 years of experience reading the charts. “That would be a concerning sign for us that tech is not going to be rebounding.”

However, he said he doesn’t see that happening. “We think from here until year end tech continues to lead.”

Google has hired Geisinger's David Feinberg to lead its health strategy

Google has selected Geisinger Health CEO David Feinberg to define a strategy to coordinate its moves into the $3 trillion health care sector, Geisinger has announced.

The search has been underway for months, according to several people familiar with the search process. Artificial intelligence head Jeff Dean has been deeply involved in the process and personally interviewing candidates, the people said. Some of the candidates have included leaders in health consulting, hospital management and insurance. The position would report to Dean, but would also work closely with Google CEO Sundar Pichai.

Feinberg’s job will be figuring out how to organize Google’s fragmented health initiatives, which overlap among many different business groups.

Among the groups interested in health care are Google’s core search team, its cloud business, the Google Brain artificial intelligence team (one of several groups at Alphabet working on AI), the Nest home automation group and the Google Fit wearables team.

One particular area of interest is building out a health team within Nest to help manage users’ health at home, as well as to monitor seniors who are choosing to live independently. Nest had been an independent company under Google holding company Alphabet, but was absorbed back into the Google Home team earlier this year.

It’s not known how Feinberg will work with other Alphabet companies that are already doing work in health care, including Verily, its life sciences research and development group; and DeepMind, another group focused on artificial intelligence. This particular role is more focused on coordinating across the various teams at Google proper, the people said. But the job could be complicated by the number of powerful executives at the company who have a strong interest in health care, including Alphabet President and Google co-founder Sergey Brin, former CEO Eric Schmidt, and Verily boss Andy Conrad.

The company recently hosted a two-day conference for employees working in health at Google, as well as its Alphabet subsidiaries.

Google is just one of the technology companies that has made moves in health in recent years. Apple is also making investments in the space, particularly in health hardware, and Amazon is looking into a number of areas, including prescription medicines, medical supplies and employer health. Amazon has also teamed up with Berkshire Hathaway and J.P. Morgan to brainstorm ways to lower health costs and make health care more efficient.

Google did not respond to requests for comment.

China and India will lead the world's nuclear power growth, experts say

India and China are set to drive the world’s nuclear power production growth as the two developing nations — among the top consumers of energy in the world — pursue their respective national nuclear energy programs.

According to the International Energy Agency, nuclear power production will grow by about 46 percent by 2040 — and more than 90 percent of the net increase will come from China and India.

Global nuclear electricity output grew 1 percent in 2017, as the world’s nuclear fleet generated 2,503 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity, according to the World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2018.

Take China out of the picture, however, and the reality looks starkly different: Global nuclear power generation would have declined for a third consecutive year, the report showed.

Asia, for its part, saw 8 to 9 percent growth in nuclear capacity last year, Agneta Rising, the director general of the World Nuclear Association, told CNBC at the Singapore International Energy Week conference last week.

“(The) largest growth in nuclear energy is in the Asia region, especially in China and India,” she said, adding that nuclear power is “absolutely compatible” and “necessary” for a low carbon future.

Investors haven’t been this pessimistic since the 2016 election, and it could lead to a big bounce

“Looking at the put/call ratio, you’re looking at very high levels of pessimism,” Ari Wald, head of technical analysis at Oppenheimer, said Monday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.” “What that put/call ratio does is it’s looking at the percentage of put buying versus call buying.

Investors haven't been this pessimistic since the 2016 election, and it could lead to a big bounce

The midterm elections are clouding the market’s outlook on Tuesday, but one technician sees a bullish signal hiding in the charts.

“Looking at the put/call ratio, you’re looking at very high levels of pessimism,” Ari Wald, head of technical analysis at Oppenheimer, said Monday on CNBC’s “Trading Nation.” “What that put/call ratio does is it’s looking at the percentage of put buying versus call buying. Typically when there’s a lot of put buying it’s an indication of fear in the market, investors and traders taking on downside protection.”

Higher put buying typically suggests investors expect the value of the market or a specific stock to fall. A spike in investor puts could mean fear has overtaken the market, which often correlates with market lows and a subsequent “reflex rally,” said Wald.

“That put-call ratio specifically [is] showing the most pessimism in the market since the November 2016 U.S. election,” he added. “We don’t think now is the time to change positions. I think you get that rebound rally into year-end.”

From Election Day on Nov. 8, 2016, through to the end of that year, the S&P 500 rallied nearly 5 percent.

Investor worries over the U.S.-China trade war and doubts over peak earnings and economic growth have pushed stocks sharply lower in recent weeks. The S&P 500 has fallen more than 6 percent from its all-time high set in late September.

Boris Schlossberg, managing director of FX strategy at BK Asset Management, said it is possible for “one last hurrah rally” this year, but tighter monetary policy from global central banks puts the long-term bull market in doubt.

“Money is no longer easy, credit is no longer easy, I think that correlation between easy credit from central banks and the equity market has been very strong,” he said Monday on “Trading Nation.”

A bond market under pressure is also a concern for Schlossberg.

“Bonds no longer offer a negative correlation to stocks. In other words, bonds can fall just the same way that stocks do. There is no safe haven to hide,” he said. “When the correction comes for real, it’s going to be much more vicious and much stronger than anybody fears.”

Bonds often act as a safe haven for investors worried about a falling stock market. Bond prices and yields move inversely. The yield on the 10-year note went as high as 3.21 percent on Tuesday, while the 2-year Treasury yield increased to its highest level since 2008.
