In the United States, we celebrate Labor Day on the first Monday of September to commemorate workers and their contributions to industry and society. But in other parts of the world, the honor is still celebrated on May 1. It is fitting the Bureau of Labor Statistics released an update on August’s hiring ahead of the Labor Day weekend. At first glance it would appear the report was a “haymaker” blow to investors. But further investigation suggests otherwise.  The BLS’s preliminary estimate of job growth in August is 175,000. This is a marked departure from the average 203,000 monthly... [Read More]

Lenders Widening their Pricing in the August 2015 Commercial Real Estate Market

Tuesday, August 18, 2015

The heat of August has again provided some volatility in the capital markets.

Below is a summary graph showing this year's movement in 10-year average investment grade corporate bonds and 10-year U.S. Treasury yields. The yield on the 10-year U.S. Treasury rose by approximately 30 bps in the middle of the summer reaching a height of 2.44 percent; the repercussions of recent international market turmoil and a flight to safety have brought that yield back below 2.20 percent. The capital markets are an ever fluid marketplace ... [Read More]

While the imagery invokes terrific drama, it carries little logic. I am not an expert in etymology but I believe the word "defibrillate" could be broken down into two parts: de-fibrillate, which is to remove fluttering, in this case, within muscle fiber. So a defibrillator might prove strategic when someone is suffering arrhythmia amidst a heart attack. Or, maybe when a stock market is experiencing convulsion. So pardon me for grimacing a little this morning when a CNBC pundit announced the... [Read More]
