Contractors for Pulte Homes work on a home site in North Las Vegas' Sedona Ranch community on Friday, Oct. 12, 2018. (Eli Segall/Las Vegas Review-Journal) Las Vegas homebuilders last year booked the most sales in more than a decade as buyers paid record prices, but the market is forecast to cool off in 2019. Homebuilders closed 10,669 sales in Southern Nevada last year, up 14.2 percent from 2017, according to a report this week from Las Vegas-based Home Builders Research. The median sales price of December’s closings was $396,994, up 7 percent year-over-year and the highest ever reported by the firm going back to 1990. Homebuilders also bought more than 200 acres of land in Clark County for nearly $700 million combined last year, the research firm said. Roughly 30 percent of these deals were in the fast-growing southwest valley. Last year’s home sales tally was the highest since 2007, according to Home Builders Research data, but developers still aren’t selling … [Read more...] about Las Vegas homebuilders booked the most sales in 2018 since 2007

Supported by ByMatt Phillips Jan. 20, 2019 Stocks have staged a remarkable turnaround in the early days of 2019, rebounding after an end-of-the-year tailspin that was fomented by fears of recession in the United States. Three straight weeks of gains in the new year on Wall Street have erased nearly all of 2018’s losses. It’s the best start to a year since 1987. Even so, many factors behind last year’s troubling decline remain unresolved. American companies and consumers are less optimistic about the future, and large economies like Germany and China are signaling a global slowdown driven by the trade war. Britain is in turmoil over leaving the European Union. And a new concern, the longest federal government shutdown … [Read more...] about The Stock Market Is Making a Comeback.

Shiller Jan. 17, 2019 Stocks came very close to entering a bear market on Christmas Eve, which was a very bad thing. Just about everybody said so. Yet the bear-market label is based on a dangerously unscientific understanding of stock markets. It is dangerous because the designation itself can set off a negative popular narrative that may, in itself, help to fuel a bigger market decline. What happened in December? By Dec. 24, the S&P 500 had fallen 19.8 percent from its peak of September 2018. That was just short of the “traditional” 20 percent slide that many say defines a bear market. It has been strongly up since then, but still remains down substantially from that peak. This … [Read more...] about ‘Bear Market’ Is an Arbitrary Label, but Using It Can Hurt
Quarterly earnings season is getting underway, and it could go a long way towards dictating the future of the stock market. A recent uptick in equity volatility has created an uncertain and unstable earnings environment, which could result in sharper share moves than usual. We outline why this is the most important earnings season in recent memory, and discuss what’s at stake. Earnings season is always a crucial time for stock investors. It gives them a rare peek inside the companies whose shares they own. And, perhaps most importantly, it’s a chance for them to take advantage of bigger-than-usual price swings. But the reporting period getting underway this week is carrying extra importance. In fact – given what’s transpired in recent months, and what’s at stake – it’s not an exaggeration to say this is the most critical earnings season in years. A big part of that stems from the profit growth slowdown being signalled by Wall Street and … [Read more...] about We’re entering the most important earnings season in recent memory — and the fate of the stock market hangs in the balance
