Tuesday, March 18, 2014 – Food and Oil

Food and Oil by Sinclair Noe DOW + 88 = 16,336SPX + 13 = 1872NAS + 53 = 433310 YR YLD – .02 = 2.68%OIL + 1.62 = 99.70GOLD – 12.00 = 1356.50SILV – .38 = 20.92 Let’s start with some economic news. The National Association of Home Builders housing market index increased to 47 in March, up from 46 in February. A reading below 50 means more builders view conditions as poor rather than good. Fewer homes are being started in early 2014 than at the end of 2013. Housing starts came in just slightly below economists’ expectations of 910,000 at 907,000. Separately, a quarterly survey by the Business Roundtable found US chief executive officers somewhat more positive about the economy, including plans for hiring and capital spending over the next six months; they expect gross domestic product to advance 2.4% this year. The forecast is a slight upgrade from an expectation of 2.2% in the previous survey but still less than robust. The Consumer Price Index, or CPI, increased a seasonally adjusted 0.1% in February, matching the increase in January. According to the Labor Department report, the increase was mainly due to higher prices for food. Energy prices decreased 0.5%. Over the last 12 months, the CPI is up 1.1%. Costs for meats, poultry, fish, dairy and eggs drove the gains. Most notably, beef and veal prices surged. Prices for beef saw their biggest monthly change in February since November 2003; that was when fears of mad-cow disease …

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 – Inequality With a Dash of Salt

Inequality With a Dash of Salt by Sinclair Noe DOW + 18 = 16,198SPX + .04 = 1845NAS + 4 = 429210 YR YLD – .03 = 2.67%OIL +72 = 102.55GOLD – 11.80 = 1330.80SILV – .68 = 21.32 Sales of new single-family homes started 2014 with surprising strength, with January posting the fastest pace in more than five years. Home sales jumped 9.6% in January to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 468,000, hitting the highest level since July 2008. Today’s sales news follows a string of recent reports signaling recent sputtering in the housing market. The data, to be fair, have a huge confidence interval—plus or minus 17.9% in January. That means we can’t know for certain whether sales rose or fell during the month. On a three-month average, sales rose 1.2% in January. Sometimes you have to take a look at economic data with a dash of salt. Bank earnings jumped in the fourth quarter, but not solely because of increased net income. According to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, financial institutions in the US earned a whopping $40.3 billion in net income in the fourth quarter of 2013, up 16.9% from a year earlier. More than half of the 6,812 FDIC insured institutions reported a year-over-year growth in quarterly earnings. And the portion of unprofitable banks dropped to 12.2% from 15% in the fourth quarter of 2012. But it’s not all good news. The improvement in earnings was largely attributable to an $8 billion decline in …
