  • A Feast Of Economic Data

    Lots of economic data: (Bureau of Labor Statistics)

    US Durable Goods, a measure of company equipment investment was up 0.4%, but if you take out planes and cars was down 0.3%.

    October personal income was up 0.2% and consumer spending was also up 0.2%.

    Applications to refinance a mortgage decreased 4% and applications to purchase a home fell 5% last week.  Purchase application volume is now off 10% from a year ago. The average contract interest rate for 30-year fixed-rate mortgages with conforming loan balances ($417,000 or less) decreased to 4.15%.

    Deere & Co. projected a 20% decline in farm equipment sales in 2015, warning again that lower commodity prices and falling farm incomes are putting pressure on demand for agricultural machinery. In the most recent quarter, equipment sales fell 6.7% from a year earlier to $8.04 billion, while operating profit dropped 14% to $1.17 billion. (Wall Street Journal)

    The S&P 500 is up 3 and the NASDAQ is up 8. The MSCI, a measure of international markets is up 0.17%.

  • Seahawks-49ers Rated Tossup

    (Renton, WA)  --  The Seattle Seahawks' Thanksgiving night game with San Francisco is rated a tossup in Las Vegas.  The Seahawks gained ground on the Arizona Cardinals with last Sunday's 19-3 win at CenturyLink Field, and hope to build on that momentum when they visit the 49ers tomorrow night.  Both Seattle and San Francisco are seven-and-four heading into the contest.  Kickoff tomorrow is set for 5:30 p.m.

Oregon will play for the PAC-12 Championship the following Saturday.  Oregon's opponent in that game will be either UCLA, Arizona, or Arizona State.
