30 Year Fixed Mortgage: 3.5% to 3.625%
1 day ago by Calculated Risk @ Calculated Risk

From Matthew Graham at Mortgage News Daily: Mortgage Rates Hold Relatively Steady Despite Bond Market WeaknessMortgage rates mostly held steady today, despite a move higher in broader interest rate indicators like the 10yr Treasury yield. Treasuries and mortgage rates typically track each other quite well, but that relationship has broken down in recent weeks due to the rapid drop in rates and the increase in volatility. The mortgage sector has a much tougher time adjusting to new realities compared to Treasuries. [Most Prevalent Rates 30YR FIXED - 3.5% - 3.625%]emphasis added

2Q Corporate Results: 2% Earnings Growth Expected in 2019
1 day ago by Urban Carmel @ Fat Pitch

Summary: Overall, corporate results in the second quarter of 2019 were fine, but growth has slowed. Sales and earnings were up were 5% and 4% yoy, respectively. Margins rebounded from the end of 2018 but are still below the cycle high made in 3Q18.Looking ahead, analysts' expectations for 10% earnings growth in 2019 have been revised down to just 2%. This estimate will be about right if margins can be maintained at the current level and the dollar doesn't further appreciate, but another drop in oil prices could cause earnings growth to decline towards zero.For 2020, analysts currently expect growth of 5% to sales and 11% to earnings. This is too optimistic. Assuming no change in the dollar, oil and margins, earnings growth is likely to be halved. Margin compression (likely) would lower growth much more.Valuations are now back to their 25-year average. They are not cheap, but if investors once again become ebullient, there is room for valuat...
