Companies Poised To HIRE!!
December 10, 2013


"Job openings in the U.S. climbed in October to the highest level in more than five years, showing employers were looking beyond the budget impasse in Washington amid growing confidence in the economic expansion.

The number of positions waiting to be filled rose by 42,000 to 3.93 million, the most since May 2008, the Labor Department reported today in Washington. Other figures showed wholesalers boosted stockpiles by the most in two years, another sign that companies were preparing for a pickup in sales.

A report last week showed companies in November followed through on the hiring intentions as payrolls climbed more than projected. The figures on openings, combined with data on hiring and job leavers, are among those tracked by Federal Reserve policy makers, including Janet Yellen, to gauge labor-market strength as they determine when to reduce bond purchases.

“Businesses are looking to fill openings, they recognize the economy is improving and to meet demand they’re going to have to hire more aggressively,” said Ryan Sweet, a senior economist at Moody’s Analytics Inc. in West Chester, Pennsylvania. For the Fed, “it’s going to be a close call in December, but they may just wait until 2014” to begin trimming stimulus, he said."

December 9, 2013


"This may be the season for job hunting.

U.S. employers in October posted the most job openings in a single month in more than five years. The number of people quitting their jobs — considered a sign of confidence in the job market — also hit a five-year high.

Employers surveyed by the U.S. Labor Department said they had a total of 3.93 million job openings available, the most since March 2008 — just three months into the Great Recession. That breaks down to 2.9 unemployed Americans per job opening."

"The number of new foreclosure filings -- which includes default notices, auctions and bank repossessions -- dropped 15% to a total of 113,454 properties in November, according to RealtyTrac, an online marketer of foreclosed properties.

That was the biggest monthly decline since November 2010, and foreclosure filings are now at the lowest level since December 2006. From a year ago, filings are down 37%.

"While foreclosures will likely continue to stage a weak rally in certain markets next year as the last of the distress left over from the Great Recession is dealt with, it is highly unlikely that there will be a foreclosure comeback that poses any major threat to the solid housing recovery that has now taken hold," said Blomquist."

Costs Fall AGAIN On Cheap Gas!!
December 13, 2013

Read & weep, Teabaggers


"Wholesale prices dropped in November for the third consecutive month, pushed down by cheaper gasoline and home heating oil costs.

The Labor Department says the producer price index, which measures prices before they reach the consumer, declined 0.1% in November. This comes after decreases in October and September. Gas costs tumbled 0.7% last month after a steep drop in October. The costs for new cars also fell 0.8% in November.

Energy costs have kept inflation low over the past 12 months. Prices have risen just 0.7% in that period."

Same As It's Always Been!
December 12, 2013


"The surge in first-time applications could be a troubling sign if it lasts. But it likely reflects the difficulty adjusting for delays after the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Labor Department said Thursday that the less volatile four-week average rose 6,000 to 328,750. That is close to pre-recession levels and generally a positive sign for job gains.

Applications had tumbled in recent weeks to nearly six-year lows, partly because of a late Thanksgiving holiday that may have distorted the government's seasonal adjustments. Economists believe this week's jump in claims was a dose of payback.

"What the seasonals give in one month they have to take back the next, hence today's number," said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics.

Applications for unemployment aid are a proxy for layoffs. A steady decline over the past year suggests that fewer Americans have lost their jobs. Economists will track the next few weeks closely to see if that trend is reversing, or if the surge is a temporary blip caused by seasonal adjustments.

The recent drop in layoffs has coincided with a pickup in hiring. The economy has added an average of 204,000 jobs a month from August through November, up from an average of 146,000 in May through July."

Factory Activity
GAIN$ $TEAM
!!
December 16, 2013


"U.S. manufacturing output rose for a fourth straight month in November as production increased almost across the board, the latest suggestion the economy is gaining steam.

That added to solid reports on retail sales and employment that have painted an upbeat picture of the economy and strengthened the case for the Federal Reserve to start reducing the pace of its monthly bond purchases.

"The outlook for 2014 is going to be bright. The economy has reached escape velocity and, with numbers like these, the Fed better start recalibrating," said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ in New York.

Manufacturing is pushing ahead after a lull early in the year, and two other reports on Monday suggested it continued to make strides in December. The sector is benefiting from a firming domestic housing market and an improving global economy.

The amount of factory capacity in use jumped to a near six-year high of 76.8 percent last month."

The financial collapse of 08 can be traced back to the repeal of Glass-Steagall in 1999. The blame lies with Bill Clinton to sign as its replacement the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act into law. That was the beginning of the fuggery that took ten years to implode. Once it did, Obama rescued the wall street gamblers to the tune of 1.5 trillion. And last week Trump rewarded the same gamblers with another 1.5 trillion that our kids are supposed to pay of through reduced services and benefits.

There were no bank bailouts for fifty years under fdr's game rules. Under reaganomics, the bank bailouts began before the old dick sucker ever left office.

"U.S. housing starts surged to their highest level in nearly six years in November, a sign of strength in the housing market that could give the Federal Reserve ammunition to start cutting back its bond purchases.

The Commerce Department said on Wednesday housing starts jumped 22.7 percent, the biggest increase since January 1990, to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1.09 million units.

That was the highest level since February 2008 and only the second time since the collapse of the housing market in 2006 that starts rose above a 1 million-unit pace.

The department also said groundbreaking increased 1.8 percent in October and slipped 1.1 percent in September. The release of housing starts data for September and October was delayed because of a 16-day shutdown of the federal government in October.

Economists polled by Reuters had expected starts to come in at a 950,000-unit rate in November and set a 915,000-unit pace in October."

"Consumer sentiment rose to its strongest in five months in December as Americans' outlook on the economy and job prospects improved, a survey released on Monday showed.

The final reading on the Thomson Reuters/University of Michigan's overall index of consumer sentiment jumped to 82.5 for December, up from the 75.1 posted in November but unchanged from the preliminary reading released earlier this month.

This was the highest reading for the index since July, though it was slightly under expectations for a reading of 83.

"Most of the gain was due to more favorable buying plans due to renewed discounting as well as more favorable short-term prospects for the economy," survey director Richard Curtin wrote in a statement."

Stronger U.S. Growth!
December 24, 2013
 


"Orders for long-lasting goods such as computers and machinery climbed in November by the most in 10 months and new-home sales exceeded forecasts, showing a more broad-based U.S. economic expansion entering 2014.

Bookings for nonmilitary capital equipment excluding aircraft, a proxy for future business investment, increased 4.5 percent, more than double the most optimistic projection in a Bloomberg survey of economists, a Commerce Department report in Washington showed. Home sales eased to a 464,000 annual rate from a revised 474,000 pace in October that was the fastest since July 2008.

Manufacturing is adding fuel to the expansion as assembly lines respond to stronger demand for motor vehicles and home-construction materials. A sustained pickup in investment in new equipment, along with increased consumer spending and the prospect of smaller federal budget cuts, is making companies more confident in the economic outlook.


"This economy is getting ready to kick it up a notch," said Chris Rupkey, chief financial economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ Ltd. in New York, who correctly forecast the orders gain. "Consumers are feeling confident enough to buy the biggest of big-ticket items, the family home, and companies are seeing enough demand to buy equipment at close to record levels."

Teabaggers are the scum of the Earth. A self-gratulating bunch that thinks a nobody ever passed gas but them. Nobody but them pays their fugging taxes. You come away thinking that time would have stood still if it were not for fugging teabaggers. The cons suelre did a number on them

Tea baggers don't think time moves, while your intellectual show of acting superior does.  Real or reality as reality is the history of human behavior ignoring the basic functions of life naturally existing simultaneously when alive as one lifetime each and never duplicated beyond identical twins and each of them is a separate personality.

"U.S. construction spending rose in November at the strongest pace in more than four years, driven by solid gains in home construction and commercial projects.

The Commerce Department said construction spending increased 1% in November to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $934.4 billion. That's the fastest rate since March 2009 and a slight improvement on the revised 0.9% gain in October.

Those gains are a positive sign for the overall economy. More than two-thirds of the residential construction market comes from single-family homes.

Each new home creates an average of three jobs for a year and generates about $90,000 in tax revenue, according to National Association of Home Builders. The new construction suggests that builders expect buying to continue picking up in 2014."

2014:
GREAT Year For MANUFACTURING
!!!
January 2, 2014

*


"U.S. factory activity held near a 2-1/2-year high in December and the number of Americans filing new claims for jobless benefits fell again last week, suggesting the economy was poised for stronger growth in 2014.


The strengthening fundamentals were underscored by other data on Thursday showing construction spending hit its highest level in nearly five years in November.

"The underlying trends are pointing to the economy accelerating as we move through the year. Conditions seem to be coming together for a very good year," said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors in Holland, Pennsylvania.

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said its index of national factory activity stood at 57.0 last month. The index had climbed to 57.3 in November, the highest since April 2011.

A reading above 50 indicates expansion. With a gauge of new orders hitting a 3-1/2-year high and inventories declining, manufacturing activity is set to accelerate early in the year.

While manufacturing accounts for only about 12 percent of the economy, it has been the key driver of recovery from the 2007-09 recession. Its continued show of strength is combining with improving fortunes in other sectors of the economy to set a foundation for sustained strong growth this year."

"COME ON DOWN!!!"
January 3, 2014


"The auto industry sold 15 million vehicles in a year for the first time since 2007, and even a disappointing December couldn't tarnish the improvement.

The last time U.S. auto sales cracked the 15 million mark was in 2007. The following year, auto sales plunged during the first full year of the recession, pushing GM and Chrysler into bankruptcy. Both automakers were bailed out by the U.S. government.

The 2013 sales volume has been much healthier for the industry than the larger volumes of the last decade. There have been more sales to consumers and fewer to rental car companies and other fleet buyers that pay less for cars and quickly dump them in the used car market, pushing down new car prices. As a result, consumers spent a record dollar amount on cars in 2013."

"U.S. exports rose to a record high in November, helping to shrink the nation's trade deficit to the lowest in four years.

The surprisingly positive trade report Tuesday adds to the upbeat outlook for the economy. With net exports stronger than expected, analysts revised higher their economic growth forecast for the fourth quarter, saying it will likely come in at a solid annual rate of about 3%.

The Commerce Department said the U.S. trade deficit in goods and services with the rest of the world totaled $34.3 billion in November. That was the lowest since fall 2009 and a steep drop from a trade gap of $39.3 billion in October, seasonally adjusted.

U.S. exports of goods and services reached $194.9 billion in November, up 1% from $193.1 billion in October."

"The labor market ended 2013 on a roll, with businesses continuing a several-month streak of solid payroll gains by adding 238,000 jobs in December, payroll processor ADP said Wednesday.

Economists expected ADP to report 200,000 additional private-sector jobs, according to a consensus forecast. The Labor Department's more closely watched survey of businesses and federal, state and local governments, due Friday, is expected to show 195,000 jobs were added last month.

Both employment reports capture similar trends but ADP has had mixed success in forecasting the Labor tally. The two reports sometimes diverge more sharply in December because of holiday absences and the tendency of employers to purge their payrolls of employees who have left the company, says Jim O'Sullivan, chief U.S. economist of High Frequency Economics.

Last month, small businesses added 108,000 jobs; large companies, 71,000, and midsize ones, 59.000.

Professional and business services led payroll gains with 53,000. Construction companies, which are benefiting from the housing recovery, added a surprisingly strong 48,000. And trade, transportation and utilities added 47,000. Manufacturers added 19,000 jobs.

"Job gains are broad-based across industries, most notably in construction and manufacturing," said Mark Zandi, chief economist of Moody's Analytics, which helps ADP compile the report. "It appears that businesses are growing more confident and increasing their hiring."

"Joe LaVorgna, chief U.S. economist of Deutsche Bank, who did not participate in USA TODAY's survey, said he has boosted his December estimate to 250,000 additional jobs from 200,000.

"The promised land of meaningfully higher growth is at hand," LaVorgna says."
