08:55 EDTU.S. equities are fired up again
U.S. equities are fired up again in the aftermath of the mixed Fed reasoning yesterday and with European stocks higher, apparently thinking a Scottish "no" separation vote is in the bag. Yet jobless claims sank 36k and housing starts fell 14.4%, offering a typically mixed picture of the economic outlook, which cooled investor sentiment. Asia was mostly bullish as well with the Shanghai Comp uio 0.35%, while Japan's Nikkei shot 1.13% higher thanks to the rampant dollar, which nearly kissed 109.00. The Dow is 38-points higher, S&P gained 5-points and NASDAQ is up 12-points in pre-market action, below earlier highs. Rite Aid sank 9% after a large profits miss and Pier 1 tumbled 11% after slashing its earnings outlook, while United Natural Foods rallied over 3% after an earnigns beat. Agilent rallied 1.5% after CEO succession plans were put in place and Monsanto gained over 1% after rated a buy by Stifel Nicolas. The Philly Fed index remains a wildcard next.
08:50 EDTThe 36k U.S. initial claims plunge to 280k
The 36k U.S. initial claims plunge to 280k in the BLS survey week more than reversed the 12k Labor Day pop to 316k (was 315k) to leave what is now a lean start for claims in September despite the Labor Day surge. Claims have tightened considerably since the auto retooling period that produced a 279k cycle-low in mid-July. Claims are averaging 297k thus far in September, following higher averages of 303k in August, 296k in July, 315k in June and 312k in May. Today's 280k BLS survey week reading sits well below prior BLS readings of 299k in August, 303k in July, versus 314k in June and 327k in May. Analysts assume a 200k September payroll gain that sits above the disappointing 142k rise of August but below the 207k average of the last twelve months. Analysts assume a 200k per month payroll growth trend into year-end. Payrolls face ongoing upside risk from a firm Q3 trend for initial claims, producer sentiment and ADP, solid vehicle assemblies, and an ongoing consumer confidence climb back above mid-2013 levels.
08:45 EDTU.S. housing starts dropped 14.4% to 0.956 M in August
U.S. housing starts dropped 14.4% to 0.956 M in August after rebounding 22.9% to 1.117 M in July (was 1.093 M). The latter was the highest since November 2007. Single family starts slipped 2.4% following July's 11.1% jump. Multifamily starts dropped 31.7% after surging 44.9% in July. Building permits fell 5.6% to 0.998 M from July's revised 1.057 M (was 1.052 M).
