  • ECONOMIC NOTES:
    • ABC News/Washington Post Consumer Comfort Index - Stabilizing?
    • After plummeting since the beginning of this year, consumer confidence is showing tentative signs of stabilizing. According to the ABC News/Washington Post consumer comfort index, sentiment rose a single point to -44 in the week ending June 15. The details of the report were mixed with the economic and buying climate components increasing 2 points. Meanwhile, the personal finances component was unchanged over the week.
    • Risk of Recession
    • The Moody's Economy.com probability of recession eased to 43% in May, compared to April's 51%. Recent data suggest that the U.S. economy is bending but not breaking. A growth recession is developing; data on hiring, spending and confidence suggest the recovery will be longer and more painful than previously expected. Meanwhile, tax rebate checks are showing up in consumers' checking accounts, which will provide a much-needed, but temporary, boost to spending.
    • Conference Board Leading Indicators
    • The Conference Board index of leading indicators rose 0.1% in May. The index has risen in the past two months following a steady decline that began in the middle of last year. The trend is consistent with diminished downside growth risks and an economy that has stalled but not collapsed.
    • State Personal Income
    • Personal income rose 1.1% during the first quarter, following a 1.2% gain in the final quarter of 2007. State personal income growth ranged widely, largely because of surging prices of agricultural commodities that were a boon for some states but hurt others. First quarter incomes were also boosted by annual bonus payments in the financial services industry that lifted income growth in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey.
    • Treasury International Capital Flows
    • Net long-term TIC flows in April rose to $115.1 billion from $79.6 billion the prior month.
    • Current Account Deficit
    • The U.S. current account deficit widened by 5.5% to $176.4 billion in the first quarter of 2008, from a revised $167.2 billion in the previous quarter. The consensus expected the deficit to widen to $172.0 billion. The balance on goods widened by 1% to - $211.0 billion in the first quarter of 2008, from -$208.9 billion in the previous quarter.
    • Jobless Claims
    • Initial claims declined 5,000 to 381,000, in line with expectations for a decline. This is consistent with what has been seen over the past several months. Layoffs are no longer accelerating but appear to have reached their peak trend for this downturn.
    • PPI
    • Producer prices for finished goods rose by a large 1.4% in June as expected, following a 0.2% increase in April. Inflation was led once again by large price increases among food and energy products. Excluding food and energy, prices for core finished producer goods rose by 0.2%. Price increases remained more rapid at earlier stages of processing. Core prices for intermediate products rose by 2%, while core prices for crude materials rose by 5%.
    • CPI
    • Top-line inflation for urban consumers increased by 0.6% in May a higher level than expected, and by 4.2% compared to May 2007. As expected, the largest single increase was in energy prices, which increased by 4.4% in May, a 28.2% annualized rate, and a 17.4% increase from May 2007. Food prices edged up by 0.3% for May and 5.1% from May 2007. Core inflation is at 0.2% for the month and 2.3% compared to May 2007, indicating that inflation for items other than food or energy remains stable so far.
    • Industrial Production
    • Industrial production fell 0.2% in May, following an outsized 0.7% decline in April. Manufacturing output was unchanged despite a modest rebound in auto production. Mining production rose 0.1%, but utility output plunged 1.8%. Capacity utilization fell to 79.4%, the lowest reading since the Hurricane Katrina period in 2005. Overall, the report is consistent with continued modest declines in manufacturing.
    • Mass Layoffs
    • The number of layoffs involving at least 50 workers from a single establishment in May was 1,626, compared with 1,308 in April. They involved 171,387 workers, compared with 133,914 in April. All numbers are seasonally adjusted. The sharp rebound puts mass layoffs in line with the March numbers, suggesting further weakening of the economy.
    • NAHB Housing Market Index - Record Low!
    • The NAHB housing market index fell by 1 point to 18, bringing it back to the record low reached in December and not seen before that since 1985. The three subcomponents were roughly unchanged at 17 for current single-family sales, 28 for sales expected in six months, and 17 for traffic of potential buyers. Homebuilders continue to see the housing market at the bottom, though pessimism might indicate further decreases.
    • New Residential Construction (C20)
    • Housing starts declined 3.3% to 0.975 million units in May. Housing permits fell 1.3% during the month. This is the second time in three months that starts have been below 1 million units. With the housing correction still running its course, the Federal Reserve will leave interest rates unchanged at 2% when it meets next week.
    • MBA Mortgage Applications Survey
    • The mortgage market was unable to sustain last week's rally and the market composite indices fell sharply as contract rates spiked upward. The market index ended the week of June 13 down by 8.8%. The purchase index finished down by 4.4%, while refinancing applications also decreased; the refinance index finished down by 15%. This was also a more straightforward week in that the reduction in applications correlates squarely with a sharp rise in interest rates.
    • Chain Store Sales
    • Chain store sales gained 0.2% in the week ending June 14, building on the prior week's large gain according to the ICSC. Year-over-year growth rose to 2.1%, the strongest in six weeks. Sales reportedly benefited from the warm weather, although soaring gasoline prices remained a significant drag.
    • Natural Gas Storage Report
    • Underground storage of natural gas rose by 57 billion cubic feet during the week ending June 13, below consensus expectations of a 62 bcf build. Working gas in underground storage was 1,943 as of June 13, 376 bcf lower than a year ago and 52 bcf below the five-year average for this time of year.
    • Oil and Gas Inventories
    • Crude oil inventories fell by 1.2 million barrels for the week ending June 13, according to the Energy Information Administration, in line with expectations. Gasoline inventories fell by 1.2 million barrels, contrasting with analysts' expectations of an 0.8 million barrel build. Distillate supplies rose by 2.6 million barrels, surpassing expectations of a 1.8 million barrel build. Refinery operating capacity rose to 89.3% from 88.6%. This report is mixed and should not have a large impact on oil prices.

    Note from Bob Springmeyer:

    Back from a terrific visit to Japan to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Salt Lake City/Matsumoto City Sister Relationship, our 30th Wedding Anniversary a wonderful visit to two of our children who are living and teaching in Matsumoto.

    As some of you may know I am the Democratic Candidate for Utah Governor.

    I chose community activist and retired SBA official Josie Valdez to run as my lieutenant governor.

    It is my hope that I can continue to send out the Monday Report weekly without interruption.

    The Monday Report has always reflected my business and economic development values.

    I don't intend that the Monday Report will become a campaign tool, but if you are interested in my campaign and want to be supportive, please click on the link below.

    Thanks,

    Bob Springmeyer
