The release of the December report was delayed by a five-week partial shutdown of the federal government that ended on Jan. 25. The housing market hit a soft patch last year amid higher mortgage rates, expensive lumber as well as land and labor shortages, which led to tight inventories and less affordable homes. Reports last month showed homebuilding dropping to more than a two-year trough in December and home resales in January hitting their lowest level since November 2015. Though house price inflation has slowed and mortgage rates are hovering at 12-month lows, economists expect the housing market to remain weak for a while because of persistent land and labor shortages. Investment in homebuilding contracted 0.2 percent in 2018, the weakest performance since 2010 swank 10k gold cufflinks.

In December, new home sales rose in the South, West and Northeast, but tumbled in the Midwest to their lowest level since April 2016 swank 10k gold cufflinks. The median new house price fell 7.2 percent to $318,600 in December from a year ago. “This is consistent with other indicators that point to a gradual slowing in housing sector activity,” said Pooja Sriram, an economist at Barclays in New York. The soft housing data added to weak December construction spending, retail sales, factory orders, exports and business spending plans on equipment in setting the economy on a slower growth path in the first quarter..

The Atlanta Federal Reserve is currently forecasting GDP rising at a 0.3 percent annualized rate in the first quarter. The economy grew at a 2.6 percent pace in the fourth quarter. U.S. stocks were trading largely flat as investors waited for developments on U.S.-China trade talks. The dollar rose against a basket of currencies, while prices of U.S swank 10k gold cufflinks. Treasuries fell. Despite the anticipated sharp first-quarter slowdown, the economy’s fundamentals remain favorable. In a separate report on Tuesday, the Institute for Supply Management (ISM) said its non-manufacturing activity index increased 3.0 points to a reading of 59.7 last month..

A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the sector, which accounts for more than two-thirds of U.S. economic activity. January’s drop in the services sector index was largely blamed on financial market volatility and the government shutdown. The surge in services sector activity last month was in sharp contrast with an ISM survey last week showing its measure of national factory activity tumbled in February to its lowest reading since November 2016 swank 10k gold cufflinks. That left some economists skeptical of February’s rebound in services industry growth..

“But one month does not make a trend and we need to see more to say that things are turning around, ideally from the consumer,” said Jennifer Lee, a senior economist at BMO Capital Markets in Toronto swank 10k gold cufflinks. The ISM’s new orders sub-index for the services sector surged 7.5 points to a reading of 65.2 last month, the highest level since August 2005. The ISM said industries “are concerned about the uncertainty of tariffs, capacity constraints and employment resources, however, they remain mostly optimistic about overall business conditions and the economy.”..

(Reuters) – General Electric Co’s chief executive surprised investors on Tuesday by forecasting a net cash outflow from its industrial businesses this year mainly due to its ailing power-plant unit, a gloomy outlook that sent shares and bonds tumbling damascene cufflinks. “Industrial free cash flow will be (in) negative territory,” compared with a positive $4.5 billion last year, CEO Larry Culp said in a webcast interview with JPMorgan analyst Stephen Tusa, a longtime GE bear. The shock remark dealt a fresh blow to GE investors who have watched the Boston-based conglomerate slash its dividend as it took massive asset write-downs and huge insurance charges last year. The stock is up nearly 36 percent this year but is still worth less than a third of its value in mid-2016..

“I don’t want to sugarcoat” the problems in GE’s power business, Culp said, adding the unit likely will lose more cash in 2019 than the $2.7 billion in free cash flow it lost in 2018 damascene cufflinks. The cash forecast shows “demand for GE’s (power) turbines is half what the company forecast two years ago, and this is likely to persist into 2020,” said Jim Corridore, an analyst at CFRA, who rates GE a “buy.”. The stock swiftly fell below $10, the company’s biggest intraday percentage drop in more than three months, which knocked more than $4 billion off GE’s market value. The shares closed 4.7 percent lower at $9.89 on Tuesday after falling as much as 7.6 percent..

GE’s bonds also declined, with GE Capital bonds the hardest hit. A $2.25 billion issue at 4.5 percent coming due in March 2044 was down 1.65 percent damascene cufflinks. “The risk of additional debt ratings downgrades has now increased,” said John Inch, an analyst at Gordon Haskett Research Advisors, who rates GE “underperform.”. GE’s bonds are rated three notches above junk and it is selling assets to reduce its high level of debt. Culp’s comments went well beyond his January warning that industrial free cash flow, which excludes GE Capital dividends and cash from asset sales, would weaken in 2019. Investors are looking closely at GE’s cash because of the gap between cash and earnings..

Profits collapsed at GE’s power unit in mid-2017 as sales fell and the company failed to deliver on promises to increase margins after a $10 billion acquisition of Alstom of France. Since then, GE has blamed the power unit’s losses, which totaled $22 billion last year, on its own poor management and a shift toward new wind and solar power plants damascene cufflinks. The power unit is spending at least $480 million to fix thousands of turbine blades that are at risk after blades broke in 2015 and 2018, causing serious damage to power turbines and coinciding with a drop in GE’s market share..

GE also has poured billions of dollars into its insurance business, which includes thousands of money-losing long-term care policies written more than a decade ago. Some experts said GE may have to spend billions more to cover claims. Culp said the power business would face headwinds for “a couple of years,” would not resolve problems with breaking power turbine blades for “a while” and promised to step up restructuring in the business and elsewhere. GE declined to provide restructuring cost estimates. The company is due to publish a financial forecast on March 14 damascene cufflinks.

The company also said it is looking at “options” to reduce its insurance risk, adding to hints from Culp on Tuesday about possible sales of parts of the business. GE’s massive power-plant business is hemorrhaging cash and contending with falling sales and technical problems, while the company is selling assets to pay down its outsized debt cufflinks set. Since last year, GE has reduced the total amount of insurance reserves it plans to set aside to $14.5 billion by 2024 after completing an analysis of the policies..

But some analysts have said GE may need to nearly double that amount because assumptions it used to calculate the exposure are optimistic. As a reinsurer, GE cannot seek premium increases directly. It must rely on about 30 companies that underwrote the policies it holds to seek increases from regulators in the numerous U.S. states where they were sold cufflinks set. GE’s target for new reserves amounts to about $55,000 per policy, compared with $77,282 at Humana Inc and $10,614 at Unum Group, according to an analysis for Reuters by Audit Analytics, an independent research company based in Massachusetts..

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – European Central Bank President Mario Draghi caught even dovish rate-setters off guard by pushing on Thursday for unexpectedly generous stimulus after forecasts showed a large drop in economic growth, four sources familiar with the discussion said. At its policy meeting, the ECB delayed its first post-crisis rate hike into 2020 and offered banks more ultra-cheap loans, arguing that persistent uncertainty from a global trade war to Brexit was causing lasting damage to the euro zone economy cufflinks set.

Policymakers had not expected to change their guidance on interest rates. But Draghi confronted them with forecasts showing growth at just 1.1 percent in 2019, less than half what the ECB predicted a year ago, and proposed a wider set of measures than rate-setters had prepared for, the sources said. “Growth is below trend now and the output gap is opening up again,” one of the sources said cufflinks set. “It’s is worrying because very little of this slowdown is actually temporary.”..

Another source said it became clear only on Monday that the ECB would opt for more radical action, when policymakers were already in their quiet period and therefore unable to alter market expectations. The exceptionally weak growth projection, along with a notable drop in lending, was also the reason why the ECB went ahead with announcing a fresh round of longer-term loans to commercial banks, while giving itself more time to working out the details cufflinks set. More conservative policymakers tried to push back but largely failed..

NEW YORK (Reuters) – General Electric Co will invest more heavily in junk bonds, private equity and other high-yield investments to boost returns at its ailing insurance business, company executives said on Thursday gold lion cufflinks. Seeking to calm investors about its insurance liabilities, GE said its insurance investments are too conservative compared with competitors. The change will allow for better returns that help reduce the amount of reserves it must set aside for claims, Anthony Grandolfo, the chief investment officer of GE’s insurance business, told analysts on a conference call..

Asked about increased risk, he said GE was still being prudent gold lion cufflinks. “We’re starting from a point where we think (the portfolio) is quite conservative and we expect to continue to maintain a portfolio that is quite conservative,” said Grandolfo, who was hired as GE’s first dedicated chief investment officer for insurance in October. Only 2 percent of GE’s insurance assets are currently in non-investment-grade investments – much less than the 12 percent average in the industry, Grandolfo said, citing a Goldman Sachs study. GE plans to gradually increase its level to 8 percent by 2024, he added..

GE has also hired two other executives to run its insurance unit: Chief Executive Officer Tim Kneeland, who formerly handled long-term care policies at Transamerica, and Managing Director Bob Deutsch, former chief financial officer at CNA Financial. In a presentatihere that repeated information GE supplied in its annual report last week, the Boston-based conglomerate said it has achieved about $500 million worth of premium increases that it is in the process of putting in place gold lion cufflinks.

GE shares were up 2.3 percent at $9.32 on Thursday. Investor focus now turns to GE’s presentation of its full-year forecast, scheduled for March 14. GE shocked investors when it took a surprise $6.2 billion after-tax charge last year and began setting aside $15 billion – one of the largest such amounts ever – to cover the policies that were underwritten more than a decade ago, when actuaries did not yet know how costly the claims would become. GE’s insurance losses are among a host of problems the 127-year-old company is facing as it attempts a breakup under new Chief Executive Larry Culp in an effort to restore profit and buoy its stock, which has tumbled to less than a third of its value in mid-2016 gold lion cufflinks.

LONDON (Reuters) – A $10 billion wipeout over the last week has compounded the worst start to a year for equity flows since 2008, Bank of America Merrill Lynch strategists said on Friday. Citing data from flow-tracker EPFR, BAML’s analysts calculated that just over $60 billion has now been yanked out of equities this year. Almost $80 billion has been pulled from developed markets, while $18.5 billion has gone into emerging markets identifying cufflinks. They added that last week also saw the fourth-biggest inflow on record into ‘investment grade’ bonds at $9.5 billion and that “Europe = Japan” – a reference to long-term aneamic growth and low interest rates – was now the most consensus trade in the world by their calculations..

“Europe = Japan is correct and consensus,” they said, though they also reckon European assets will outperform in the second quarter now that the European Central Bank has shifted back towards stimulus and there are signs of renewed growth emerging from China. For many, the monster outflows from stocks will appear at odds with what has been a red-hot start to the year for equity markets.

The apparent disconnect could be explained by the fact that EPFR data captures only a portion of investment funds but also that firms themselves have been buying up their own shares this year after they became much cheaper last year. Recent data from Biryinyi associates showed that U.S. companies had already announced plans to buy back nearly a quarter of a trillion dollars of their own stock by the end of February, which was up 7 percent on the same time a year ago.

FRANKFURT (Reuters) – The European Central Bank changed tack on its tightening plan on Thursday, pushing out the timing of its first post-crisis rate hike until 2020 at the earliest and offering banks a new round of cheap loans to help revive the euro zone economy. The bolder-than-expected move came as the U.S. Federal Reserve and other central banks around the world are also holding back on rate hikes. It underlined how a global trade war, Brexit uncertainty and simmering debt concerns in Italy are taking their toll on economic growth across Europe how to wear chain cufflinks.

Whereas the bank had previously said rates would remain at their record low levels through the summer, it said it now expected them to stay there “at least through the end of 2019”..
