Fannie Mae Expects Economy to ‘Drag’ Housing Toward Recovery in 2015

Or, as Fannie Mae puts it, the economy is strong enough to drag housing behind it and create growth by default.”Our theme for the year, ‘Economy Drags Housing Upward,’ implies that both housing and the economy will pick up some speed in 2015, but that the economy will grow at a faster pace,” said Doug Duncan, chief economist at Fannie Mae.Fannie Mae expects strengthening private domestic demand to drive the economy up 3.1 percent in 2015—up from the agency’s earlier prediction for 2.7 percent growth.While that prediction is still modest, Fannie Mae says it’s strong enough to “drag last year’s unspectacular housing activity upward,” according to the report. Fannie Mae credits projections for continued low gasoline prices, firming labor market conditions, rising household net worth, improving consumer and business confidence, and reduced fiscal headwinds to usher in a year of steady, if “not yet robust” economic improvement that should lead to a higher rate of household formation in 2015.”Consumer spending should continue to strengthen due in large part to lower gas prices, giving further support to auto sales and manufacturing,” Duncan said. “We believe this will motivate the Federal Reserve to begin measures to normalize monetary policy in the third quarter of this year, continuing at a cautiously steady pace into 2016 and 2017.”Duncan also said he suspects mortgage interest rates to stay low throughout this period, attracting steady supply of new homebuyers.Fannie Mae’s report echoes the sentiments of the National Association of Home Builders, which also this week spoke of bluer housing and economic skies ahead. Top economists and housing experts in a panel at the group’s International Builders’ Show in Las Vegas predicted a recovering labor market, low interest rates, and improvements in credit availability for borrowers as the three main triggers for growth in the housing market this year.These assessments, however, are not shared by everyone, at least not blanketly. Earlier this month, Trulia’s chief economist Jed Kolko warned that falling oil process could have a recessive effect on housing in major oil-producing state such as Texas, Oklahoma, and Louisiana.Kolko did say, however, that lower fuel prices could just as likely stimulate flagging industrial economies in the north and Midwest, where oil production is virtually nonexistent.Regardless, Duncan and Fannie Mae foresee big things, even if this year will not be a breakout year for housing. “We expect the rising share of new home sales to lead to a healthy increase in single-family construction of about 19 percent, or 765,000 units,” he said.

More Midwest tornadoes possible after 29 reported since Monday

first_imgABC News(NEW YORK) — At least 29 tornadoes have been reported across four states since Monday, as a period of severe weather now enters its fourth straight day.Sixteen tornadoes have been reported this week in Kansas, five in Oklahoma, five in Nebraska, and three in Missouri. There were at least 218 storm reports Wednesday alone, as parts of Oklahoma saw winds in excess of 100 mph.Several clusters of intense thunderstorms are moving through the Plains and Midwest Thursday, some with winds as high as 70 mph in Arkansas and Missouri, and a reported tornado in Oklahoma.Severe weather has also been expected in northeast Kansas, northern Missouri and southern Iowa, the third straight day for many of these areas. Damaging winds, large hail, and tornadoes are possible from Texas all the way up through northern Illinois.Parts of the Northeast may see some scattered thunderstorms as a corridor develops stretching from eastern Michigan to upstate New York. Damaging winds are possible in this region later in the day.The entire storm system likely will weaken Friday, with severe threats more isolated. Thursday probably will be the last day of the severe weather outbreak.Several clusters of intense thunderstorms are moving through the Plains and Midwest Thursday, some with winds as high as 70 mph in Arkansas and Missouri, and a reported tornado in Oklahoma.Severe weather has also been expected in northeast Kansas, northern Missouri and southern Iowa, the third straight day for many of these areas.

Cricket News 6 wickets, 4 runs and 15 balls: Watch how Trent Boult ripped apart Sri Lanka

first_imgNew Delhi: Trent Boult produced a spell for the ages as he decimated Sri Lanka on day 2 of the second Test in Hagley Oval, Christchurch to give New Zealand a crucial 74-run lead as Kane Williamson’s side looked to create a record and win their fourth consecutive series in 2018, something which New Zealand have never achieved in their history. Boult’s spell came in a space of one devastating passage of play in which he picked up all six wickets in just 15 balls to usher a dramatic Sri Lanka collapse. In the process, he just conceded four runs as Dinesh Chandimal’s side had no answer to the left-arm bowler’s reverse swing.Sri Lanka resumed on 88/4 and seemed to be in a strong position after they had bowled New Zealand out for 178, with Suranga Lakmal taking a five-wicket haul. After conceding a boundary in the first over, Boult and new ball partner Tim Southee bowled three consecutive maidens as New Zealand eyed more wickets. However, Boult struck when Roshen Silva edged a full and swinging delivery to Southee at third slip and New Zealand had gotten the opening. What followed afterwards was absolute carnage.Read More | Steyn breaks Shaun Pollock’s record, becomes most successful SA pacerIn the 39th over of the innings and Boult’s 14th, the left-armer tore through the Sri Lankan lower order. Niroshan Dickwella was lured to drive a full ball and the edge flew to third slip where Southee pulled off a stunning one-handed catch. On the fifth ball, Dilruwan Perera shouldered arms to a delivery that swung back in and in the very next ball, Boult trapped Suranga Lakmal  (0)  LBW with an inswinging yorker to finish with a triple-wicket maiden.Read More | Ricky Ponting formally inducted into ICC ‘Hall of Fame’Although Boult missed the hat-trick, he managed to get Dushmantha Chameera (0) LBW with another inswinging yorker and the 29-year-old wrapped up the innings by trapping Lahiru Kumara (0) in front as Sri Lanka were bowled out for 104, giving New Zealand a healthy lead. Boult’s spell of 2.3-1-4-6 proved his class and his 6/30 was his best figures in Tests, beating his previous mark of 6/32 which he achieved against England in the Pink Ball Test in Auckland at the start of the year when New Zealand bowled England out for 58.

SAB’s R6bn empowerment deal

first_imgThe bottling section of South African Breweries’ plant in Alrode, Johannesburg. (Image: Chris Kirchhoff,MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free photos, visit the image library.)MediaClubSouthAfrica.com reporterMultinational brewing giant SABMiller has announced a major black economic empowerment deal that will see local subsidiary South African Breweries (SAB) transfer some 10% of its value, worth about R6-billion (US$750-million), to black participants.These will include SAB employees, black-owned liquor retailers – both those licensed to sell alcohol and those in the process of applying for a licence – as well as black-owned companies that are customers of ABI, SAB’s soft-drink division, and the broader black South African community.The deal, announced yesterday, is expected to cost the company about R1.8-billion ($220-million).“There are three innovative and distinctive features of this transaction,” Graham Mackay, chief executive of SABMiller plc, said in a statement. “Firstly, the transaction places no reliance on external bank funding, and requires only a relatively small and hence affordable cash investment from retail participants.“Secondly, a meaningful dividend stream is expected to be paid to all participants for the whole of the 10-year transaction period, thereby delivering a significant economic benefit from the first year.“Thirdly, the transaction aims to benefit the stakeholders who have made a real contribution to SAB’s success as well as the broader South African community through the SAB Foundation.”The transaction will not require any external bank funding, and will need only a small cash investment by participants who, SAB said, can expect meaningful cash dividends to be paid from the first year.At the end of the 10-year transaction period, participants will exchange their shareholdings in SAB for shares in SABMiller.One of the world’s largest brewers, SABMiller has brewing interests and distribution agreements across six continents.Its brands includes premium international beers such as Pilsner Urquell, Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Miller Genuine Draft and Grolsch along with top local brands such as Aguila, Castle, Miller Lite, Snow and Tyskie.The structure of SAB’s BEE deal will see the creation of three new investment groups – an employee trust, a retailer entity and the SAB Foundation. These will each will each subscribe for new separate classes of SAB ordinary shares, allocated in the ratio of 40:40:20 respectively.The deal will significantly improve SAB’s compliance with the South African government’s BEE Codes of Good Practice.These Codes aim to reduce the entrenched inequalities caused by apartheid and increase the participation of black people in the economy. BEE is seen as a key requirement for the promotion of sustainable economic growth and social development in South Africa. For the purposes of BEE, black people are defined as African, Indian, coloured and Chinese South Africans.As only licensed retailers or those who have applied for a licence qualify, SAB hopes the deal will support the liquor-licensing process in South Africa. This would legalise an effective distribution network – South Africa’s township taverns, known as shebeens.“There are considerable socioeconomic benefits to be derived from a normalised and regulated industry in which liquor retailers, the vast majority of whom are currently unlicensed, are formally incorporated into the economy and liquor industry,” the company said.The precise terms of the transaction are expected to be finalised after the November release of SABMiller’s interim results for the six months ending 30 September 2009. Subject to shareholder approval, it is likely to be implemented in the first half of 2010.Related articlesBlack economic empowermentSAB wins big, greens Boks Brewery spreads African reach Brewing up boutique beers SABMiller: global brewing giantUseful linksSABMiller South African Breweries Department of Trade and Industrylast_img read more
