looking for that i am guessing that might be something to do restating --g or likening or restating earnings. housing going to look in the second quarter -- how is it going to look in the second quarter? >> it's a discontinued operation. phillips is a health technology company. in that space, we have grown 4% and a quarter, taken a percent quarter intake growth, which bodes well because we are taking market share and moreover, our profitability increases by 90 days at this point. overall, a solid quarter and fully in line with our guidance for activities. anna: i want to ask you about the personal health business. you recently lost pizza note that, can you tell us about any succession planning?

1:14 am
and we see more and more insurance companies and health care operators asking to help them keep patients out of the hospital. and our personal carol, -- personal care, respiratory care, child care business, it's very well in this strategy. we are staying with it and it is going well and there is more growth and profit improvement to come. the best bid on an m&a .pree, buying up businesses what will the balance sheet look like when you have done all this? as we get the proceeds 10 from lighting and also the second quarter from the sale, we have a strong cash position. we have capital allocation policy is balanced. shareholders returns through dividends.
1:15 am
we have announced a share buyback for the next two years of $1.5 billion. i've always said we would use the proceeds to strengthen the portfolio. the most important acquisition forpecter next, a leader minimal invasive procedures for patients. it fits well with the prior acquisition we did and already next year, it will be growth and adjusted -- it bodes well for our shareholders and fully aligned a balance capital strategy. anna: do you have a plan to sell part of philips? we spoke to that company at the end of last week. you do not own a majority, but you have a substantial holding. what is the timing on that? guest: we still have close to 41% and we will sell over time
1:16 am
to zero. i have always said that. we want to be seen as acre play help tech company. -- health tech company. we have seen to shareholders that liked our focus as we move away from a holding company into a health tech operating company. it is a very exciting market and so overtime as we sell down lighting, we will use proceeds to strengthen our health tech portfolio. anna: we have seen reports coming out of the netherlands around the intentions of activist investors with regard to your company. have you any information about whether they are building a stake and are you acting mindful of the pressure that activist and pressures -- investors can apply? guest: this was a rumor that popped up in june. any publicot made disclosure nor have they sent us
1:17 am
a letter, so i do not know if they are a shareholder. we do talk to many shareholders all the time. we see a lot of net tech shareholders coming in too long positions because they like our strategy and like our growth central to mid single digits. we have said we will annually approve profit by around 100 basis points for several years to come. with a balance capital allocation strategy, i think it is a story investors like and i am focused on just delivering those results. findingw much are you it distracting what is going on in washington at the moment? involved, areg you lobbying for types of changes in health care? 35% of our revenue is in the united states. we actually are a net exporter from the u.s., so it is a important country to us so
1:18 am
obviously i am closely following what is happening. our customers are a bit concerned. they do not know what is going to happen with the accountable care act. we see that reflected in more careful decision-making around investments. nevertheless, in the united states, phillips was able to record a percent order intake growth. that is a testimony to strong innovation around clinical mathematics, diagnostic imaging, and also our personal health fully. great to have you on the program. speaking to us like from amsterdam. up next, we will be speaking to ryanair cfo. ♪ that is next.

1:22 am
daybreak: europe. ryanair's airline posted 50% gains. the cfo is joining us. great to have you on the program. ahead line is a strong uptick in profits. beating expectations, but a big effect. help us understand that every guest: six week ago, we had a strong first-quarter aided by easter. that's what happened. easter fell in april this+++
1:23 am
that had a good impact on the numbers. averages of 1% on the quarter. that was primarily easter offset by weaker sterling cons. anna: not something that can push up guidance? guest: when we came out five weeks ago, we saw affairs down 5.5%, we at easter in the back at that stage, so we gave the guidance we thought was right. that would indicate was down as much as 8% in the second quarter of the year, which is fantastic for our consumers. anna: i love how you turn that into a positive. fares rose 1% into the quarter. when was the last time we saw prices rising? tost: we are always trying give good value back to our customers. it's been a while. we have seen fares dropping as low as the euro last year. thes are down again in first half. we do think it could be down 8%. you relate to what easyjet said about low oil prices? there is a lot of capacity. guest: there is a lot of but we always have the passive numbers and the effects we take the price. we have the lowest cost of the airline in the market.
1:24 am
every unit costs were down 6% in the quarter. there are seeing down 3% at a time when our competitors increased between 2% and 7%. we have a massive competitor. it enables us to offer a lower fares and stimulate the market. anna: are to the league by your luggage policy. to backs on board. guest: that is not ancillary. people can take a back on board the aircraft as well as get a seat on the aircraft. it's a phenomenal body. -- phenomenal value. ancillary revenue performed well. we have seen a strong performance on the likes of the reserves seizing the priority boarding. copies, neds, going very well. we expect that to continue.
1:25 am
we are simulating other products. we are working very hard to increase penetrations on those as we invest the revenues we are getting from the other products that can do that. be flat on ait can four-year basis. according to italian media reports, easyjet has made nonbinding offers for alitalia. any comments to make? guest: we put an interest in before. yesterday it was the deadline and we put something in. one go into detail on what it is other than i think it is important for the largest airline that we are involved in the process. anna: you have a real interest or you just want to see in the books? guest: we have an interest to see alitalia survive. it's an important thing to see that they remain. we have 30% of the market initially, so i think it's important the largest italian character -- carrier dissipates
1:26 am
in the process. anna: you just don't want those slots. guest: i don't want to give our deal away on the air, that we do have an interest in being a part of the process. anna: let me ask you about the boeing 737. he talked this morning about whether you are likely to take out those options. 10st: we ordered an extra maxis and the extra corner, which brings us to 110 for the aircraft. the first five of these into the summer of 2019, the first aircraft was not coming out until autumn, so that helps address to bury capacity. we are excited about these. eight extra seats, 60% more fuel efficient than the current aircraft we have and 30% commission reduction. it will help drive cost down in the future. anna: think you so much. great to see you.
1:27 am
this is the daybreak. we will be live from st. petersburg when oil ministers meet today. you are looking at a live shot. this is bloomberg. ♪
1:28 am
1:29 am
1:30 am
anna: welcome back, everybody. 111.09 is where we are on euro-dollar. that seems to occur. the yen up for a six-day dollar weakness. the event risk's running some of the tech news we will see in front of the senate committees this week. let's take a chat on the market. you are talking about yen strength as you talk against the dollar. we are seeing weakness when it comes to japanese stocks. this is nikkei volatility rising
1:31 am
from a 12 year low. it jumped for percent, the most in a month. we are seeing losses in asian stocks. if you look at the asia-pacific index with energy stocks leading a lot. we are seeing gains in china and hong kong but a lot of other benchmarks hosting losses. there is risk aversion across the market as you are pointing to the head of the fed meeting we are getting an as you point to the event risk around the politics. this is the bloomberg dollar index dropping to its lowest since may 2016 on friday. it is holding those lows, the market is bearish on the dollar if you talk about hedge funds, the lowest since 2013. it's against most major currencies as well except the yen. the chart is approaching supports. it might break them, what it is arguing is that the long-term macro downtrend is sacred keep an eye on the technicals because if you look at the relative strength index on a 14 date
1:32 am
raises, the bloomberg dollar index is looking oversold but it is playing short-term against long-term. the10-year, eating into dollar as well, we saw that drop nine basis points last week. it managed to break through the 50 day and 200 day moving averages, which is what i showed here. though it is steady right now at 2.24%. anna: let's talk about the oil story. they are trading lower $46 a barrel this morning. the secretary-general of opec spoke ahead of the meeting. it's not about adapting to market conditions or the market adapting to what we are doing. the quantity the group of technical experts to evaluate the dynamic between the current market, which you will agree with me, has been increasingly complex. and challenging. dynamics that have
1:33 am
been increasingly challenging and complex. who better to speak with us then yousef gamal el-din. what can we expect from today's? -- from today? yousef: there is punt the at stake here. -- there is plenty at stake today. the president of opec is confident the rebalancing is working. today is an important day and more importantly so because the monitoring committee comes here in an expanded format and they have more leverage this time around. in the past, you would look at the data and say this is the state of play. givethey can do now is recommendations on the basis of that data. that brings up some of the key things we have been speaking about in the last few weeks. what is going to happen with libya and nigeria and numerous sources say it will not be high
1:34 am
on the agenda. that's what the secretary general alluded to as well. howother is going to be, can you accelerate the rebounding casas -- rebounding process? that will be a tricky one. did they have to say about the oil outlet price? yousef: he was confident and update. he always is, but he was especially upbeat. if you take a closer look at what is happening with some of the inventory, you take a look at what you can expect for the demand story in the second half. this is what he had to say. placeh of what is taking both onshore and offshore. there pretty sure rebounding process maybe going at a slower pace than we earlier courseed, but it is of
1:35 am
-- but it is on course. it's bound to accelerate in the second half as of those numbers. to start late different realities being presented here if you take a look at what jpmorgan put out. they sent opec is becoming less compliant toward the end of 2017, 22 a risk of a domino effect. they are seeing material stock built globally. it's interesting to find out who will turn out to be right. anna: we will keep an eye on what is happening in st. petersburg. yousef gamal el-din, thank you. we have a senior european economist at citigroup in the next half hour to put all kinds of global things in context. let's start with the oil prices, we talked to you set about bringing this in balance. this chart is expanding out.
1:36 am
this is what is difficult about the smoke and mirrors of the opec story. they cut about -- they talk about cuts, but cuts result in increased production. how much of a headache is this for the world you watch? oil prices have been on the rise and central banks thought they would catch the break. guest: it makes our inflation forecast a bit wobbly. they riseriods where and other periods where just because of what is going on elsewhere, inflation falls away. year, first half of the we had this easter affect when easter was in a different time before and in particular europe, it makes it difficult for us and for central banks to interpret what is going on with underlying inflation. is it heading up as we expect?
1:37 am
the decline in unemployment, is that driving up which pressures or isn't it an is is unthinkably different from what it was before and what is that mean for monetary policy? anna: we talked for a long time about how economies are supposedly decreasing the sensitized to the oil price. not as sensitive as we once were. i've got here the fed. the less inflation below the goal for the lowest since 2012. syllabus of this is oil, some of it is technology. the fed is not close to where it wants to be on inflation. guest: indy. if we look globally at the best has seemedthe trend to peak. in particular, in the u.s.. in europe, we are confident it is very gradually edging up. i know means not there to be
1:38 am
confident that things go back to shape of the wa phillips curve. this is the big macro question that we have. economic where the recovery seems to be doing, the imf has been pointing out, it's broad-based, it is relatively strong. what is missing is the link to inflation that we used to have. anna: let's get a few more lines on the imf story you mentioned. the tribes of economic recovery are changing, they are saying the world is relying on the u.s. and u.k. less than expected. it lowered its outlook for the united kingdom after the soft third quarter. has not changed that, but they changed at last month. the front that down last month. the growth's story regarding the
1:39 am
imf relying decreasingly on the united states and more on other parts of the world. we kind of knew that but this is reiterating that. this global story. guest: i do think the u.s. story and a fiscal stimulus story is important. the imf has taken it out, but we think there will be tax cuts as opposed to tax reforms. with knowledge of tax reform is going to be increasingly difficult. see how complex the other issues are that donald trump and the republicans are trying to get the congress, the health care bill and so on. tex reform will be extremely difficult, but tax cuts are so possible and we do expect them by the end of the year and we do expect there to be increased growth. if it doesn't, it does not affect our global growth forecast. perhaps the global economy depends less on the u.s. then at the beginning. anna: are you happy being more
1:40 am
optimistic about what the president and his him assertion to deliver that maybe others out there? you happy with that difference? guest: it keeps you on the toes at the moment. theing he is still with european and other forecast, depends on the u.s. forecast being right, which implies tax cuts. it keeps you on your toes. i do think the story is pretty clear. we have the next elections in the u.s.. the republicans will want to show something after a year where not everything has gone according to plan. i think tax cuts is the easiest way. there is also one way to get democrats on board. they are going to find it more difficult to vote against tax cuts than health care reform. anna: the dollar has been weakening around this. around this is appointed from capitol hill and the lack of delivery on the ground from the illustration.
1:41 am
do think we can put a floor under the dollar if the market comes around to picking, we might not get what they promise, we might get this level of tax cuts? guest: we do expect the dollar to strengthen again as it becomes clearer there will be tax cuts in the u.s.. back down to the 110 level against the euro or even lower, or about that putting on how you see it. we do expect that to happen. in the long run, that may change. the eurozone has this concept that needs rebalancing. the economy needs strengthening. the dollar may weaken again. but in the short run, we see the dollar strengthening against the euro. anna: thank you very much for your thoughts so far. he stays with us here on bloomberg daybreak europe or it if you are a bloomberg customer, you can watch the show using the tv country on your bloomberg. as well as getting all the

1:50 am
to have calmed down in terms of market view on europe since the french elections, in particular. coming from last year, the trump inferendum, france, there was expectation france would follow the populist trend and would be more worrying in europe than anywhere else. the french election was a bit of a watershed moment. if you look forward to the next four years, you take the german election and italian election, that could cause the odd rebel here and there. in general, things seem to be coming down. there are issues not related to elections and the polish and hungarian issue, these are issues that have been in the background. tensions are brewing in the case of poland, they have seemed to come to a head. anna: that says the eastern block apart some of the bigger countries in the eu.
1:51 am
i wanted to talk to you about the polish economy or what we need to watch. there is a lot riding on this developing story. the currency suffering its worst debt since 2013. the strength story will cushion how weak it gets here. we are watching politics rubbing against the economics. guest: for hungary and poland, these governments, the economic success these countries have had in europe, things were not going to well, it was an important part of their success story. they have not always been in power so we have take this with a grain of caution, but a good economy helps governments push through their agenda. it is going to continue? in the short-term, it is not too unlikely it will continue, but things will come to a head when we discussed the next eu budget, the big one from 2020-2026.
1:52 am
in the context of britain leaving the eu, that could your bidding to the budget anymore, these eu funds that come to poland and hungary are several percentage points of gdp in these countries. if europe decides it will save money because britain leaves and the net intervenors like germany and france do not want to make up the balance, that means less money for poland. that will have an impact on the economy. that is where we see who has more bargaining power, the polls, the hungarians, or the germans and the french. it looks easy. but they have to give europe together. they have to keep europe united, keep the you you -- eu united. it's a complex process overall. anna: talking about france, we saw the population -- popularity of macron in the last month, losing 10 percentage points in
1:53 am
terms of popularity in france. that is not great compared to previous presidents and how they looked in the early weeks of their presidency. a crest of aiting wave, there was bound to be disappointment and setback as soon as he came into contact with the real issues tried to deal with. ,his is not to do with macron but it has been booming. how do we match the growth story in france with the politics of the moment? guest: this chart is interesting. we look at it on friday in comparison to the eurozone because there are other factors owing on. although becoming cheaper helps consumers across the eurozone and that is part of the story here. it's interesting because consumer confidence in france always jumps around presidential elections. that was the case in 2012 and is now the case with macron. it falls very thickly after
1:54 am
because their hopes are disappointed. has macron really made hopes? he has not made promises. like in 2012e rich that would lead to the social giveaways. what he had promised is a big labor market reform. people will perhaps lose their jobs because of it. 30 inthe fact he left the the most recent weeks, some people suggest it's a flat with the military also to do with what the labor form means. it could be something in the summer months and beyond start to dominate the combination -- conversation in france. , they by all the workers cannot lose their jobs and the younger ones make up for the lack of flexibility by only having temporary jobs. he is trying to change that. the good news is that he is doing it at a period where
1:55 am
