Points of interest:
• New Home Sales: Measuring signed contracts on new homes, sales were down 6.9% in April – weaker than the expected 3%. But this doesn’t tell the whole story; 1) March report was revised significantly higher, keeping sales within expectations – down less than 3.0%. 2) Keep in mind: Sales are up a solid 7%, year-over-year. This despite media and Diana Olick. They want you to believe housing is dead. • Stock market: is again bouncing off lows – the 7th instance in the current economic expansion. Most are driven by political issues and uncertainties in Europe and China – even Mexico. We will see if this recovery, matches the last 6. Watch the range: Dow between 24500 and 26500 the new normal? • Inverted Yield Curve? Not yet. The Fed has verbally indicated it will remain watchful – comparing prime rate to traditional 2-year vs 10-year notes. • Per our friend and chief economist with Fannie Mae, Dr. Doug Duncan: "The greatest impediment – to both sales and affordability – continues to be on the supply side, as new inventory, particularly among existing homes, is being met quickly by strong demand." • Lending: Lending guidelines are again, consumer friendly, yet still disciplined.
1) GDP: Our US economy – measured as a whole – jumped from 2.2% for the 4th quarter, to a robust 1st Quarter growth of 3.1 %. Inventories are increasing in anticipation of increasing sales this Summer Season. A good sign of a strong economy. Should we expect some cooling – Yes. It is very good to be disciplined and not get ahead of ourselves.
2) Unemployment: Are we finally bottoming out? This is what we thought a couple of months ago, only to only get lower. Unemployment numbers are important to watch.
3) Expert Opinions: Dr. Doug Duncan – chief economist for Fannie Mae – referencing a significant slow down, sees “nothing on the horizon, for a recession, in the next couple of years.” Dr. Christopher Thornberg – chief economist at Beacon Economics and with UCLA – puts the economic horizon for a recession, out over 2 years. Number one risk: Political uncertainty.
Conclusion: Potential for our next recession – not in the foreseeable future. Yet?
