Pompeo says the US message on Huawei is clear. Trump’s words say otherwise

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said this week the U.S. has been very clear about its stance toward Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei. “No mixed messages, not at all,” Pompeo told CNBC earlier this week. “The threat of having Chinese telecom systems inside of American networks or inside of networks around the world presents an enormous risk — a national security risk.

Pompeo says the US message on Huawei is clear. Trump's words say otherwise

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said this week the U.S. has been very clear about its stance toward Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei.

“No mixed messages, not at all,” Pompeo told CNBC earlier this week. “President Trump has been unambiguous. I don’t think there’s a mixed message at all.”

“The threat of having Chinese telecom systems inside of American networks or inside of networks around the world presents an enormous risk — a national security risk. Our mission set is to find a way to reduce that risk, to take that risk down as much as we possibly can,” he said.

The U.S. has said Huawei is a risk because its equipment could be used as a backdoor by the Chinese government to carry out espionage — allegations the network equipment maker has consistently denied.

“China appears to be behaving itself,” Cramer said on “Mad Money. ” “It’s time to go shopping for high quality stocks while you can still get them at a bit of a discount versus where they were trading a week ago.”

Health-tech firms Livongo Health and Health Catalyst are two companies Cramer expects to be winners.

“Both IPOs spiked right out of the gate, but once the market got hammered they came right back down. In other words, you’re getting a second bite at the apple,” Cramer said.

The two words from Jerome Powell that rocked the financial markets

Markets have been on tenterhooks, once expecting three rate hikes this year, and then an easy Fed policy stance, even as the economy has been showing signs of improvement. The fed funds rate range is now 2 to 2.25%. “Let me be clear: What I said was it’s not the beginning of a long series of rate cuts,” Powell said.

The two words from Jerome Powell that rocked the financial markets

“I think by that it means he doesn’t necessarily mean more cuts are coming, maybe not necessarily one off but not indicative of more aggressive cuts,” said Ben Jeffery, a fixed income strategist at BMO.

Traders said there was disappointment with the Fed’s statement, which was perceived more as neutral than dovish, but when Powell later said during a press briefing that the Fed’s action was a “midcycle adjustment to policy” that sent markets reeling.

Markets have been on tenterhooks, once expecting three rate hikes this year, and then an easy Fed policy stance, even as the economy has been showing signs of improvement. But the Fed has been facing the unusual task of explaining why it was cutting rates in the face of stronger economic data.

Stocks cratered, the dollar hit a more than two-year high and bond yields ripped higher after Fed Chairman Jerome Powell suggested that policymakers were not embarking on a new cycle of rate cutting, after it trimmed the fed funds rate by a quarter point Wednesday.

Powell later explained, during his press conference, that he meant that the Fed was not embarking on a long rate-cutting cycle, as in a recession. He also described a Fed policy transition that began after it raised rates for the last time in December, then paused and then moved forward to cut rates by a quarter point. The fed funds rate range is now 2 to 2.25%.

“Let me be clear: What I said was it’s not the beginning of a long series of rate cuts,” Powell said. “I didn’t say it’s just one or anything like that. When you think about rate-cutting cycles, they go on for a long time and the committee’s not seeing that. Not seeing us in that place. You would do that if you saw real economic weakness and you thought that the federal funds rate needed to be cut a lot. That’s not what we’re seeing.”

Ward McCarthy, Jefferies chief financial economist, said Powell did not make a strong case for the cut where he described once “boiling” trade issues as now “simmering.” The cut was also met by two dissenters, from Boston Fed President Eric Rosengren and Kansas City Fed President Esther George.

“The position is not well enunciated. The policy statement was ambiguous and frankly he hasn’t done anything to clarify it,” McCarthy said. “He seems like he’s not confident. My take is they’re worried about downside risks. Since they’ve already taken the step [to cut rates], they’ll probably take another, but his comments and the two dissents suggest this is not the beginning of a major easing cycle and that’s what hammered the market.”

BMO’s Jeffery said fed funds futures are now reflecting slower rate cutting by the Fed. In the fed funds futures, there is a 60% chance of a 25 basis cut for September, but a 100% chance of the next quarter point by November.

“I don’t think it accomplished anything,” McCarthy said. “It may temporarily satiate market expectations, but the price action suggested the opposite, and you know it’s not going to satiate the White House twitter account. I think the Fed has put itself in a very awkward position. It could not easily defend itself, and that’s what we’re getting out of Powell.”

President Donald Trump tweeted later in the day that he was disappointed with the rate cut and Powell “let us down,” but added that at least the Fed ended its quantitative tightening program.

The reaction from the bond market was one of confusion, and strategists were looking for Fed officials to clarify the message in coming days.

“It was a very confusing and muddled message, and I don’t think that Powell delivered clear direction for what the near term path of additional Fed easing will be, and I think that’s why the market reacted negatively,” said Mark Cabana, head of U.S. short rate strategy at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.

The Dow fell as much as 478 points and ended down 333 points in its worst day since May. The 2-year Treasury yield, most reflecting the Fed ‘s policy, went on a wild ride to above 1.95% from a low of 1.79% before the Fed statement.

Thirty feared killed in arson attack on Japanese animation studio

An aerial view shows firefighters battling fires at the site where a man started a fire after spraying a liquid at a three-story studio of Kyoto Animation Co. in Kyoto, western Japan.

Thirty people were feared dead in an arson attack on a Japanese animation studio on Thursday, authorities said, after a man was seen shouting “die” as he doused the building with fuel in the nation’s worst mass killing in nearly two decades.

Prime Minister Shinzo Abe called the fire in the city of Kyoto – the latest grisly killing in a country known for its low crime rates – “too appalling for words” on Twitter and offered condolences to the victims’ families.

Police arrested a 41-year-old man who had shouted “die” as he poured what appeared to be petrol around the three-storey Kyoto Animation building shortly after 10 a.m. (0100 GMT), public broadcaster NHK reported.

Twenty people were confirmed dead and about 10 were showing no vital signs, an official for the Kyoto City Fire Department said, a term authorities often use before a death has been confirmed by a doctor.

White and black smoke billowed from the building’s charred windows, television footage showed.

It was Japan’s worst mass killing since a suspected arson attack on a Tokyo building in 2001.

“I heard the sound of fire engines and stepped outside my house and saw big flames spewing out of the building,” NHK quoted a 16-year-old boy as saying.

“Fire department officials were trying to rescue the injured in a nearby park but it seemed like there weren’t enough of them,” he said.

The prime minister said the cause was arson.

“Today, many people were killed and wounded in an arson murder case in Kyoto,” Abe said in a post on Twitter.

“It is too appalling for words.”

The US blames Iran for the tanker attacks. Here's what the Navy could do next

The war of words between the U.S. and Iran took a dangerous turn after two ships were attacked in the Gulf of Oman. One of the tankers was operated by a Japanese company.

They were hit Thursday, the same day Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe met with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and President Hassan Rhouhani.

The Trump administration put the blame squarely on Iran.

“It was not an accident that the Japanese tanker was attacked,” said Alireza Nader, who heads the New Iran Foundation, a Washington-based think tank that opposes the Islamic Republic. “This was a very blunt warning. Iran is saying to the world we are able to disrupt the world’s oil markets and we’re going to do it.”

But not everyone is convinced. “You have to fully understand what happened before you start shooting” said Mark Cancian, a defense expert with Center for Strategic and International Studies and a former colonel in the Marines with decades of operational knowledge of naval combat.

“The Department of Defense will be reluctant to retaliate until they are certain what happened and who fired on whom, and why,” he said.

The U.S. has been beefing up naval and air power, capable of striking Iranian forces in the Persian Gulf over the last month after the White House said it had information about possible future attacks against American interests. The Pentagon would not say Thursday whether there were plans to speed the buildup.

Tony Hawk turned down a $500,000 royalty check in his 20s — here’s why

Tony Hawk turned down a $500,000 royalty check in his 20s — here's why

When professional skateboarder Tony Hawk was approached by video gaming company Activision in the late 1990s, he was offered a $500,000 buy-out to put his name to one of its games.

But he turned it down.

“As Activision started getting closer to release, they felt like they had a hit on their hands just in terms of the feedback they were getting from game magazines, ” Hawk told “The Brave Ones. ” “And so they offered me a flat buy-out of $500,000 for future royalties … I had never heard anyone speak the words ‘Half a million dollars’ to me.”

Hawk’s instinct told him not to take the pay out. “It seemed unreal that anyone would offer that for the future of something that they don’t even know how it’s going to turn out,” he said.

“I think my saving grace of that was I had just bought a new house and it was almost paid for and I felt pretty comfortable with all my other income and other endorsements happening, that I thought, I could take a gamble on this piece.”

The best career and financial advice we got from our dads

With Father’s Day coming up this Sunday, the staff at CNBC Make It took some time to reflect on life lessons from our dads. Here’s the best advice we ever got from them.

There’s a difference between a ‘want’ and a ‘need’

Every Christmas, my dad takes me shopping for a “go-to gift.” Kathleen Elkins

“I remember distinctly the first time I heard my dad’s, ‘Is that a want or a need?’ speech: I was in kindergarten and tried to order a chocolate milk at a restaurant. Most of the talk went over my head, but the conclusion of his message stuck: There are ‘wants’ and ‘needs’ in life, and chocolate milk classifies as a ‘want.’ I promptly changed my order to an ice water. As I got older, I learned how to separate larger potential purchases into those two categories and developed a frugal lifestyle, much like my dad’s, centered around needs, rather than wants. Of course, there’s always a time and place for a chocolate milk: The occasional splurge keeps you sane. I just make sure to weigh the pros and cons before splurging and ensure that I’m spending on things that truly matter to me. — Kathleen Elkins, senior money reporter

‘If you have a passion that doesn’t pay, it’s called a hobby’

Courtesy of Megan Leonhardt

“My dad has always been very practical about his approach to life, especially when it comes to finding and building a successful career. He always told me and my sister growing up that we should find careers that we found interesting because we were going to spend the rest of our lives doing it. But when it came to a job within that career, he always stressed that it was important to keep learning. You should constantly be learning new things or you become stagnant. If that happens, it’s time for a new job. “That said, he encouraged both his girls to choose college majors and careers in which we could earn enough to comfortably afford to eat and have a roof over our heads. If you have a passion that doesn’t pay, it’s called a hobby. He wanted us to be able to stand on our own, and thanks to his little lessons along the way, we’re both doing just that!” — Megan Leonhardt, senior money reporter

Talk less and listen more

“My dad isn’t a man of many words, but he did teach me every lyric to Alison Krauss’ ‘When You Say Nothing At All’ by the time I was three years old. I still keep the lyrics with me since it is a song that means so much to us. “One line says: ‘You say it best when you say nothing at all.’ Those words have always reminded me of the power of listening (rather than talking) and the impact one’s actions (rather than their words) can have on those around them.” — Anna Hecht, money reporter

Passion is important, but so is your paycheck

Courtesy of Lindsey Stanberry

“My dad always says, ‘The reason you get paid to work is because it’s work.’ He’s always been very passionate about his career, and I think I get a lot of my drive from him. But when work gets tough for whatever reason — a project doesn’t go as planned, office politics are complicated, you’re putting in a lot of overtime — I always remind myself, This is why I’m getting a paycheck. ” — Lindsey Stanberry, deputy managing editor Don’t miss: This is the No. 1 money lesson Shaquille O’Neal learned from his drill sergeant dad Like this story?
