APR 23 2019
Fred Imbert

The S&P 500 headed for a record close on Tuesday as Wall Street cheered stronger-than-expected quarterly profits from some of the largest publicly traded U.S. companies.

The broad index traded 0.8% higher at 2,932.09, above an all-time closing high of 2,930.75 set on Sept. 20. It was still below its intraday record of 2,940.91.

Private payrolls surge by 275,000 in April, blowing past estimates in biggest gain since July
 
Private payrolls grew by 275,000 last month, the biggest increase since July, when they expanded by 284,000.

Services-providing jobs increased by 223,000 in April, led by a gain of 59,000 jobs in professional and business services.

"The job market is holding firm, as businesses work hard to fill open positions," says Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics.

Jobs surge in April, unemployment rate falls to the lowest since 1969

May 3, 2019

- The U.S. added 263,000 new hires in April, easily beating Wall Street expectations of 190,000.

- The unemployment rate fell to 3.6% vs. 3.8% expected and the lowest since December 1969.

The U.S. jobs machine kept humming along in April, adding a robust 263,000 new hires while the unemployment rate fell to 3.6%, the lowest in a generation, the Labor Department reported Friday.

Nonfarm payroll growth easily beat Wall Street expectations of 190,000 and a 3.8% jobless rate.

Average hourly earnings growth held at 3.2% over the past year, a notch below Dow Jones estimates of 3.3%. The monthly gain was 0.2%, below the expected 0.3% increase, bringing the average to $27.77. The average work week also dropped 0.1 hours to 34.4 hours.

Unemployment was last this low in December 1969 when it hit 3.5%. At a time when many economists see a tight labor market, big job growth continues as the economic expansion is just a few months away from being the longest in history.

The same thing happened when he announced the tariff on Chinese goods. Eventually, it recovered and it will again this time.

Pepsi, do you take pride in being a kill-joy??

First, it is ridiculed.
Second, it is violently opposed.
Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.

Stocks are closing in on their all-time highs, and some analysts say the outlook for interest rates could determine which way the market goes.



Stocks typically do well in June after a weak May, and strategists say the market has a chance to break to new highs if the trade outlook with China is positive.

The decline in Treasury yields, which spooked stocks, is overdone, and that could help drive a stock rally, according to one market technician.

Record 157,288,000 Employed in July


Terence P. Jeffrey
August 2, 2019

(CNSNews.com) - The number of people employed in the United States hit a record 157,288,000 in July, according to the employment report released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

That was up 283,000 from the 157,005,000 employed in June.

The unemployment rate held steady in July at 3.7 percent, the same as it was in June.

According to the employment report, the civilian noninstitutional population in the United States was 259,225,000 in July. That included all people 16 and older who did not live in an institution (such as a prison, nursing home or long-term care hospital). Of that civilian noninstutional population, 163,351,000 were in the labor force, meaning that they either had a job or were actively seeking one during the last month. That equaled a labor force participation rate of 63.0 percent--an increase from 62.9 percent in June.

Of the 163,351,000 who were in the labor force, 6,063,000 were unemployed, equaling an unemployment rate of 3.7 percent.

The other 157,288,000 did have jobs, yielding last month’s record number of people employed.
