The 10-Point: My Guide to the Day's Top News

The Wall Street Journal
Good morning,
The View From the Oval
I sat down with my colleagues for an extended interview Wednesday with President Donald Trump. Among other things in a conversation that ranged across international and domestic issues, he told us that he has offered President Xi Jinping more favorable trade terms for Beijing in exchange for help on confronting the threat of North Korea. His words raise the prospect of a new pact that does less than Mr. Trump would otherwise like to address the U.S. trade deficit with China in exchange for critical action to rein in Pyongyang. Mr. Trump said he told Mr. Xi when they met for the first time last week that his administration wouldn’t accept a continued large trade deficit with China. The president also said his administration won’t label China a currency manipulator in a report due this week, despite a promise he made on the campaign trail to do so. Later, the president touched on the U.S. dollar, which he said is “getting too strong,” and said that he favors the Fed keeping interest rates low.

No Love Lost
The U.S. and Russia tried Wednesday to reduce rapidly rising tensions but clashed over a range of issues, especially the future of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, during a daylong visit by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that included the Trump administration’s first face-to-face talk with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Mr. Tillerson and his Russian counterpart, Sergei Lavrov, engaged in a lengthy, detailed and often blunt exchange of views at a Moscow news conference that veered across an array of thorny foreign-policy questions and reinforced how deeply at odds the two governments stand at the start of the Trump administration. For the first high-level U.S. visit to Russia, it was a halting start to the relationship. “We may be at an all-time low” in relations, Mr. Trump said at a news conference at the White House.
The Passive Path
New data show that indexes beat stock pickers even over a 15-year time frame. Most actively managed U.S. stock funds were beaten by their market benchmarks over the past decade and a half, a record of underperformance that helps explain why stock pickers are losing billions of dollars in assets each month to low-cost passive investments that track indexes. Over the 15 years ended in December, 82% of all U.S. funds trailed their respective benchmarks, according to the latest S&P Indices Versus Active funds scorecard. The results coincide with a growing view among investors and financial advisers that active managers can’t pick stocks well enough to justify the fees they charge over extended periods and that even those managers who do outperform their passive counterparts can’t sustain it year after year.
A Curveball
This spring, Washington Nationals ace Stephen Strasburg asked a simple question that threatens to upend more than a century of baseball tradition: Why should he pitch one way with nobody on base, and another way with runners aboard? After all, he threw just as hard from the stretch as he did from the full windup, but with improved precision. By eliminating his windup, a technique long considered a fundamental part of a starter’s repertoire, Strasburg established himself as an early adopter in what could turn into a pitching revolution. For most of baseball history, conventional wisdom has said that the stretch reduced velocity and put more strain on the arm, resulting in injury. Thanks to modern science, the game now knows those perceptions aren’t true.

READER RESPONSE
Responding to yesterday’s question on the White House accusing Russia of trying to cover up the suspected Syrian chemical attack, Susan Jancar of Colorado said: “It’s about time we are saying it like it is rather than tiptoeing around!” James J. Hyland of Wisconsin commented: “The narrative has changed when dealing with Russia. Where the prior administration would draw lines in the sand with invisible ink, this administration draws the same lines but with indelible ink. It needs to be remembered that Syria was a Cold-War ally of Russia; therefore, one can draw their own conclusions as to Russia’s response on prior knowledge of the chemical attack.” And Charlie Van Pelt of Florida wrote: “Best guess is the Russians, including Russian President Vladimir Putin, always assumed Mr. Assad retained some small amount of chemical weapons and simply looked the other way, figuring if he used them, it would be limited, hard to prove and they would have deniability. The U.S. reaction has caught them by surprise. They’re mad at Mr. Assad for getting them into the mess, and mad at Mr. Trump, who they thought was in their pocket. Their grand plan to have a cooperative U.S. president, get sanctions lifted, pipelines built and Ukraine back under their control is unraveling because Mr. Trump has turned out to be an unreliable, even erratic partner.”
