    A sign stands outside an upscale home for sale in the Lake Pointe Subdivision of Austin, Texas.Ed Lallo | Bloomberg | Getty Images Consumer confidence in the housing market dropped to the lowest level since 2011, as both prospective buyers and sellers have become more pessimistic, according to a monthly survey released Monday by Fannie Mae. Just 17% of those surveyed in July said now is a good time to buy a home, down from 20% in June. Even more telling, however, is that the share of sellers who think it's a good time to list their homes dropped to 67% in July from 76% two months prior. Far fewer consumers now think home prices will rise, while the share of those who think prices will fall jumped from 27% to 30%. Fannie Mae's Home Purchase Sentiment Index consists of six components: buying conditions, selling conditions, home price outlook, mortgage rate outlook, job loss concern and change in household income. Overall, the index fell two points in July to 62.8. It's down 13 points from a year earlier. It hit...
    People wait to visit a house for sale in Floral Park, Nassau County, New York, the United States, on Sept. 6, 2020.Wany Ying | Xinhua News Agency | Getty Images Mortgage applications inched up last week for the first time since June 24. Total mortgage demand increased 1.2% as the average 30-year fixed mortgage rate made the largest weekly drop since 2020. Applications to refinance a home rose 2%, according to the Mortgage Bankers Association, but the annual drop was still huge, down 82% since last year. Applications to purchase a home increased 1% and were down 16% from one year ago. The slight increases came as mortgage rates dropped 0.31 percentage point from 5.74% to 5.43% following the Federal Reserve announcement of its latest rate hike and the GDP report, which showed the U.S. economy contracted for the second straight quarter. "Mortgage rates declined last week following another announcement of tighter monetary policy from the Federal Reserve, with the likelihood of more rate hikes to come. Treasury yields dropped as a result, as investors continue to expect a weaker...
    In this article INTC AMD Lisa Su, CEO, AMDScott Mlyn | CNBCAMD surpassed Intel's market cap for the time on Friday. AMD stock rose over 3% for the day, giving the chipmaker a market capitalization of $153 billion. Intel fell nearly 9%, a day after disastrous earnings that missed expectations for profit and showed declining revenue. Intel's market cap was $148 billion at the end of trading on Friday. The shift is mostly symbolic but it signifies a much more competitive market for PC and server chips, where the two companies compete directly. The milestone also suggests that investors may value an asset-light chipmaker over one that's investing heavily in manufacturing. AMD outsources production to outside "fabs," or chip factories, whereas Intel has said it plans to continue building and operating plants. In recent years, AMD chips have become much more competitive with Intel's in terms of performance, even surpassing their speed and efficiency for some applications. Intel said on Thursday that its disappointing report reflected execution issues and dropped its forecast for full-year earnings per share from...
    OVER half of Americans believe “right now” is the time to buy a home, according to a new poll.  The survey of 1,000 homeowners and 1,000 renters examined how they view the current housing market, revealing that 55 percent of all respondents admit inflation has made them much more eager to purchase a property.  1Over half of Americans believe now is the time to buy a home, according to a new pollCredit: Getty While 30 percent are optimistic the housing market will change for the better in the next year, 43 percent see it as “very” concerning, with a quarter thinking it will change for the worse (24 percent). And although news reports state that the “housing boom," a period where housing prices exploded due to high demand, is cooling off, 45 percent believe this real estate trend is heating up even more.  A third think this housing trend will remain the same, and only 10 percent say the housing boom is actually slowing down.  Surprisingly, 43 percent predict the housing market will return to the way it was pre-pandemic....
    Americans are paying more to finance their cars with the percentage of drivers making a payment of $1,000-a-month on new car loans doubling in the space of a year.  A record-breaking 12.7 percent of new-car buyers who took out loans last month are making monthly payments of at least $1,000, according to car-shopping site Edmunds. This time last year, the figure was closer to 7 percent. In 2019 the level was nearer 5 percent. More than a decade ago, in June of 2010, just 2 percent were paying such sums. Monthly payments on car loans are also at a record high with the average for June at $686.  That figure is up is up by 4 percent from January of this year and 13 percent from July 2021.

    People walk into a house for sale in Floral Park, Nassau County, New York.Wang Ying | Xinhua News Agency | Getty Images Home price increases slowed ever so slightly in April, but it is the first potential sign of a cooling in prices. Prices rose 20.4% nationally in April compared with the same month a year ago, according to the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller Index. In March, home prices grew 20.6%. The last slight deceleration was in November of last year. The 10-city composite annual increase was 19.7%, up from 19.5% in March. The 20-city composite posted a 21.2% annual gain, up from 21.1% in the previous month. In a change from the last five months, when most of the 20 cities saw month-to-month price gains, only nine cities saw prices rise faster in April than they had done in March. Cities in the South continued to see the strongest monthly gains, including Atlanta, Charlotte, Dallas, Miami, and Tampa. "April 2022 showed initial (although inconsistent) signs of a deceleration in the growth rate of U.S. home prices," Craig Lazzara, managing...
    China’s state-run Global Times on Sunday frantically tried to convince foreign investors that now is the “right time to bet on China” – right after the Communist government demonstrated it will not hesitate to wipe out billions of dollars in value by turning key cities like Shanghai into coronavirus prison camps at the drop of a hat. The Global Times gleefully quoted a Friday piece in the Financial Times that said “global investors are returning to the Chinese mainland stock markets after the sell-off earlier this year.” After boasting about increased activity in the Chinese stock market, the Global Times claimed international markets have accepted the costs of Beijing’s “zero-COVID” policies, and cannot wait to snap up Chinese stocks at fire-sale prices, especially with the Biden administration pushing America’s economy to the edge of recession: It is true that China’s worst epidemic outbreak in two years, the Russia-Ukraine situation and other factors hurt market sentiment in the past months. Nevertheless, with the continuous improvement of the epidemic prevention and control situation, the accelerated resumption of production in some regions in...
    VIDEO4:4304:43Crypto is here to stay despite recent volatility, says Deepak ChopraCrypto World It's been a brutal stretch for the crypto market, and a hard time for cryptocurrency investors to keep their emotions in check. The sector's market cap collapse was led by terraUSD, one of the most popular U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoins, which imploded virtually overnight. But bitcoin and ethereum, too, saw massive price declines from their recent bull market highs. A cultural icon known for being in touch with emotions — and for his recent foray into the NFT space — Deepak Chopra says investors can't ignore the recent crypto market meltdown, but they should be able to see beyond it. "The crypto world is in crisis, having lost trillions of dollars. We're in a bear market," Chopra recently told CNBC at Gary Vaynerchuk's "VeeCon" in Minneapolis. "Right now is the time to think long-term in these financial markets, including crypto. I think emergence happens when you have maximum diversity of people hanging in there creatively, complimenting each other's strengths and having some kind of a spiritual and emotional ecosystem...
    The rampant selloffs lasted for eight consecutive days marking the longest weekly losing streak on Wallstreet since 1923, CNN reported. The S&P 500 — a much broader index than the Dow Jones — posted its seventh-straight weekly loss marking the index’s longest slump since March 2001. The S&P 500 briefly entered a bear market on Friday after recording a 20% loss from the all-time high that it reached this past January. The last bear market occurred two years ago during the COVID-19 pandemic, but the recent market conditions will mark the first time since then that new investors could experience true economic shrinkage. LPL Financial’s Ryan Detrick said, “From inflation to a hawkish Fed, to war, to supply chain issues, to China on lockdown, to a slowing economy, there are many reasons stocks have done as poorly as they have recently.” Detrick suggested that a “bounce back” is likely, however. He said, “If we get any good news, a big bounce-back rally is likely.”
    FG Trade | E+ | Getty Images The recent volatile price action in the stock market has been scary for some investors, especially younger ones just dipping their toes into putting money away for the long-term. Still, financial experts say that now is a good time for people to start investing or to continue to add money into stocks. "Our younger clients and investors are scared; they're concerned about what they should do because a lot of them have not been through this before," said Anh Tran, a certified financial planner and managing partner at Orange, California-based SageMint Wealth during CNBC's Own Your Money (…Before it Owns You) event Thursday.

    Moyo Studio | E+ | Getty Images Many investors who pulled money out of the stock market in the last year now regret their decision. Some 38% of investors said they sold stocks last year due to a current event, according to a study from MagnifyMoney. Of that group, 40% said they wish they'd kept their money invested. The online survey of more than 1,000 U.S. consumers was conducted April 15 to 20. The survey found that younger investors were more likely to panic-sell. Nearly 70% of Gen Z investors pulled money from the market along with 57% of millennials. At the same time, 49% of men sold stocks due to a negative event, compared to 24% of women.

    There's no place like home, but not for beloved movie props, which are frequently lost despite their high market value. A blue and white gingham dress worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz, found buried in the drama department at the Catholic University of America and expected to fetch over $1 million at an auction later this month, is only the latest of the iconic pieces that were at least briefly misplaced. Pieces such as the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, the treasure map from The Goonies, and the golden gun from The Man with the Golden Gun are among those that have been lost or stolen over the years.

    The head of major supermarket Tesco has warned that people in the UK are facing “real food poverty for the first time in a generation”. The warning of “real food poverty” comes as many in the country struggle with the increasing costs of food and fuel due to inflation, with a former chief economist for the Bank of England warning that such inflationary conditions inflicting pain on everyday people could continue for years. According to a report by The Times, the head of the supermarket giant Tesco, John Allan, has said that many of those who visit his stores are now seriously struggling to make ends meet. “I was in some stores on Friday and I was hearing for the first time for many years of customers saying to checkout staff ‘Stop when you get to £40, I don’t want to spend a penny over that’,” the publication reports the grocery tsar as saying. “I think that many of them are struggling to both be able to heat their homes and to feed their families,” he continued. “And I think we’re seeing,...
    It’s easy to forget how dire the job market was – and just about everything was – during the last year of the Trump presidency. Americans were forced to consider theft and murder to make sure their families had enough toilet paper amid a once-a-century plague that will, by the time it’s over, have killed more than a million of us. I guess we’re just supposed to pretend that never happened, like a fresh hell of a sermon interrupted by the sudden toot of a pastor’s fart – or Donald Trumps’ trademarks in China – or Michael Avenatti. But letting the memory of the wreckage left behind by Republican presidents is why we get so many more Republican presidents. So prepare for a haunting flashback. Before 2020, America had never seen more than a million weekly unemployment claims, not even during the Great Recession. Late in March 2020, nearly 3 million workers filed claims. In a week. That was followed by 5.9 million, then 6.1 million. Pretty...
    Westend61 | Westend61 | Getty Images Social media platforms have impacted our lives in countless ways. They influence the clothes we wear, the food we eat, the places we go — and now, the investments we make. Retail investors, particularly younger ones, frequently turn to friends and strangers on social media for investing advice. Though social media and online forums can certainly have a positive impact on our investing habits — at a minimum, they expose us to new ideas and teach us about new tools — investors need to be cautious about the information (or misinformation) they incorporate into their own strategies in this new, digital age of financial advice.More from Your Money Your Future:Here's a look at more stories on how to manage, grow and protect your money for the years ahead.

    Chris Ryan | Getty Images Prices are rising, squeezing consumer budgets more than they've seen in the last 40 years. It also means that for many investors, it may be more important than ever to continue to put their long-term savings in the stock market. That's because over time, investing in equities is generally a good way to outrun inflation. For example, the average annual return of the S&P 500 Index is about 10%, higher than the 7.9% annual inflation seen in February. "Historically, being invested in equities is really the only good way to stay ahead of inflation," said Eric Henderson, president of the annuity business segment at Nationwide Financial. "Equities can be volatile but for the long run that has been a winning formula in the past." More from Invest in You:Want to give your finances a spring cleaning?

    A packet of U.S. five-dollar bills is inspected at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing in Washington March 26, 2015.Gary Cameron | Reuters Americans got considerably richer as 2021 came to a close, thanks to a nice boost from their stock market holdings and an increase in real estate values, the Federal Reserve reported Thursday. Household net worth in the fourth quarter eclipsed $150 trillion for the first time, rising at a healthy 8.2% pace from the previous quarter for the fastest growth period since the first quarter of 2020. The increase came thanks to a combined $4 trillion increase in holdings from corporate equities and housing. The total level — $150.29 trillion, to be exact — represented a 14.4% increase from a year ago. The boost came with U.S. economic growth running at its fastest pace since 1984 and the stock market enjoying another robust year. The move came despite a rapid increase in debt at all levels. Total nonfinancial debt came to $65.1 trillion, including $17.9 trillion at the household level, $18.5 trillion in the business world and...

    SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Bay Area tech giant Meta, the parent of Facebook, is putting a lot of virtual eggs - and billions of dollars - into the metaverse basket, and Wall Street is spooked.Shares of the company formerly known as Facebook saw a historic plunge Thursday after it reported a rare profit decline due to a sharp rise in expenses, shaky ad revenue growth and fewer daily U.S. users on its flagship platform.

    The outgoing Finance Minister and new German Chancellor Minister Olaf Scholz delivers a speech during the handing-over ceremony with his successor in the German Federal Ministry of Finances in Berlin, Germany, December 9, 2021.Tobias Schwarz | Reuters Borrowing costs for the German government continued their push higher on Wednesday, with the benchmark 10-year bund yield trading in positive territory for the first time in nearly three years. May 2019 was the last time that German 10-year yields were above zero, when accommodative policy from the European Central Bank pressured interest rates lower. Negative yields meant that investors were effectively paying the German government to lend it money. The ECB is currently behind on its normalization path, compared to the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England, but surging inflation and wider moves in the global bond market have now helped to push yields above zero. Euro zone inflation hit a new record high in December, raising more questions about the ECB's monetary policy. The central bank said last month that it would be cutting its monthly asset purchases, but vowed to...
    (CNN)In 2021, Honda was outsold in the United States by the combined forces of two South Korean brands, Hyundai and Kia. Taken together, the two Seoul-based brands ranked fifth in US sales, delivering 1,439,497 cars, trucks and minivans. Japan-based Honda sold 1,309,222. Looking at just these mainstream brands, Hyundai and Kia outsold Honda by more than 130,000 vehicled, the first time the combined brands have outsold Honda. If their respective luxury brands are included -- Hyundai's Genesis and Honda's Acura -- the margin is much narrower, just 22,000 sales, but the Korean brands still come out slightly ahead. These sales figures were supplied by the automakers.For Kia, it was the first time the brand ever sold more than 700,000 vehicles in one year. Hyundai set a record for retail sales -- meaning excluding sales to fleet customers -- and increased its market share by eight-tenths of a percentage point. It might seem odd to compare two automakers with just one, but Hyundai and Kia are closely related. Hyundai Motor Group, Hyundai's parent company, owns a controlling interest in Kia, and...
    London (CNN Business)From the start, it was clear that 2021 was going to be a different kind of year for markets. After the tumult of 2020, investors were feeling euphoric, betting that the availability of Covid-19 vaccinations would unlock a huge economic rebound that would send stocks soaring.By and large, they were right.As the year comes to a close, the verdict is in for Wall Street: This was a period of good fortune. Even so, simplistic narratives often fell short, as traders learned to expect the unexpected. After all, there was inflation, which was transitory until it wasn't.

    (CNN)The US housing market has had a white hot year. Home sales are on track to reach the highest level in 15 years, with an estimated 6 million homes sold in 2021. But whether you benefited from this surge depended a lot on if you were selling a home or buying one.Homeowners saw average home prices skyrocket nearly 20% through the third quarter compared to a year ago, according to the Federal Housing Finance Agency. It was the largest annual home price increase in the history of the agency's House Price Index. And, in some hot markets, the price increase was double that.

    Bloomberg | Bloomberg | Getty Images It looks like it's going to be another competitive year for homebuyers in 2022. While the market isn't expected to be as frenzied as this past summer, prices are still predicted to rise. Zillow is forecasting 11% home value growth in 2022, down from a projected 19.5% in 2021. Plus, year-over-year inventory is still lower, and concern about rising mortgage rates is fueling competition in the marketplace, said Jessica Lautz, vice president of demographics and behavioral insights at the National Association of Realtors. "If you want to get in next year or before interest rates rise, get your ducks in a row now," she said. To be sure, mortgage rates are expected to increase in the coming year.

    Another beautiful listing by South Bay Realtor Rebecca Jepsen — 974 Camellia Way in West San Jose — is a true gem, lovingly maintained by the same family for many decades. The owners originally bought the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in 1969. In 2005 they rebuilt it from the ground up, turning it into a modern three-bedroom, two-bathroom showpiece that offers an open floor plan, tall ceilings and a fabulous chef’s kitchen.

    Westend61 Panic selling often happens during stock market dips, and those who dump investments may later regret their decision.  The bigger issue, however, is getting back into the market after a "freak out," according to research from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. "Panic selling is predictable," said co-author Chi Heem Wong, researcher at MIT, and there are trends among those who dump assets during volatile periods.  Men who are over age 45, married with children and say they have "excellent investment experience or knowledge" are more likely to panic sell during stock market dips, research shows.

I’ve never even owned property, but I am now effectively under contract for a property in metro Atlanta—no small feat if you’re familiar with this market, or really any market. The coronavirus pandemic has had a bewildering effect on real estate, which the White House confirmed in a report dated Sept. 1. The pandemic “shifted families’ preferences for location and type of housing, exacerbating existing supply chain constraints that—for several reasons—have persisted for many years,” White House officials wrote. “These pandemic-related changes interacted with the existing housing inventory shortage, resulting in sharp price increases for both owned homes and rental units.” At the same time, mortgage rates have dropped to historic lows, driving an influx of would-be buyers to the market, Forbes reported in June. “Anecdotally, increasingly desperate tactics from would-be buyers are becoming the norm: ‘love letters’ from prospective buyers to owners of homes not on the market persuading them to sell,...
    The number of Americans applying for unemployment benefits rose for the first time in five weeks even though the economy and job market have been recovering briskly from the coronavirus pandemic.  Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 353,000 for the week ended August 21, the Labor Department said on Thursday. The weekly count has fallen more or less steadily since topping 900,000 in early January as the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines has helped the economy - and companies are clinging to their workers amid a labor shortage, with a record 10.1 million job openings as of the end of June. But a resurgence of cases linked to the highly contagious Delta variant has clouded the economic outlook. And claims remain high by historic standards: Before the pandemic tore through the economy in March 2020, the weekly pace amounted to around 220,000 a week.   Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 4,000 to a seasonally adjusted 353,000 for the week ended August 21 A Wendy's restaurant displays a "Now Hiring" sign in Tampa,...

    Just a few days ago we saw how Xiaomi began to take the lead, ahead of Apple, perhaps momentarily given the summer period, in the ranking of world smartphone sales, only behind Samsumg. However, it seems that the Chinese company is on an unstoppable momentum, achieving for the first time in history to overtake the South Korean manufacturer within Europe, currently rising to the top spot. As shared by Strategy Analytics, in the last period Xiaomi would have managed to reach the record number of more than 12.7 million units shipped within Europe alone, adding a total market share of 25.3%. And is that although Samsung managed to stay in a figure close to 12 million smartphones, its 24% share has relegated it for the first time behind the Chinese manufacturer, still in second place. Delving into Xiaomi’s figures, we see that its year-on-year growth in Europe is impressive, increasing 67.1% compared to the same period of the previous year, a clear difference from the -7% drop experienced by Samsumg. Even if the other two Chinese companies also saw a...

    This week, Inside the Clubhouse looks at the trade market for the Rockies’ Jon Gray, the Astros taking care of their minor leaguers and a potential Albert Pujols fit with the Dodgers. The expectation in the industry remains that the Colorado Rockies will trade Trevor Story. But rival executives believe that his teammate, right-hander Jon Gray, may be one of the first players dealt ahead of the July 30 trade deadline. At this stage of his career, Pujols resembles little of the 10-time All-Star and three-time MVP that he was early in his career. But the Dodgers will pay him a prorated version of the $575,000 million league minimum salary, meaning there is almost no risk with the move. The worst-case scenario is that the Dodgers cut him at virtually no cost. But Friedman, who has a history of making these types of deals, is optimistic that Pujols can contribute meaningful at-bats toward what the team hopes is another World Series run.

That's ahead of chief backer and self appointed 'Dogefather' Elon Musk's controversial Saturday Night Live hosting gig.  The Tesla CEO has promised the coin will appear in one of his sketches. Musk has previously tweeted: 'One word: Doge' and 'Dogecoin rulz'.    A market capitalization of $78 billion puts Dogecoin, founded in 2013, ahead of other more well established brands and companies including Sherwin-Williams which is valued at $75.8 billion; Dell Technologies, value $75 billion; Moderna, value $63.1 billion; Ford Motor Company, valued $45.2 billion; and Twitter, value $42.1 billion.   After SNL announced on Saturday that Musk will host the May 8 episode, cast members Bowen Yang and Aidy Bryant posted Instagram Stories taking aim at the billionaire.

    A little preparation can go a long way. And if you plan to make money investing, you'll need to get a few things in order before tossing money into the market, according to financial influencer Haley Sacks, also known as Mrs. Dow Jones. The most important thing is to build up some form of an emergency fund, because you do not want to dip into your investments to pay bills, said Sacks. Pulling money out forfeits future compound interest and potentially locks in your short-term losses, said Sacks. Check out this video to learn other mistakes people make before they start investing.

    In addition to higher bond yields, Fonda also highlights fears of inflation, higher taxes and a harsher regulatory climate. A cocktail that invites us to get defensive in the markets. Wolfe Research outlined some reasons for taking precautions last Monday. “On the one hand, the stock market and the Federal Reserve are playing hen with interest rates. Long-term bond yields, which the Fed does not control directly, have soared lately, putting pressure on technology and other high-growth sectors. Higher rates reduce the present value of future cash flows and they could affect the market in general if they continue to increase ”, have highlighted the strategists of Wolfe. But From the FED they have indicated that they will not intervene to reduce rates in the long term if there are no signs that warrant these actions such as the tightening of financial conditions, as stated by Jerome Powell. However, the big concern of the FED is inflation. His preferred metric, the prices of basic personal consumption expenditures, or PCE, which excludes volatility for food and oil. In February...
    (Bloomberg) – From his pedestal atop Midtown Manhattan, directly across from Carnegie Hall, Bill Hwang was quietly building one of the world’s greatest fortunes. Even on Wall Street, few noticed it, until all of a sudden everyone did. Hwang and his private investment firm, Archegos Capital Management, are now at the center of one of the biggest margin adjustments of all time – a multi-million dollar fiasco involving secret market bets dangerously leveraged and canceled in the blink of an eye. eyes. Hwang’s most recent rise can be reconstructed from the banks’ attempt to dump the shares in recent days: ViacomCBS Inc., Discovery Inc. GSX Techedu Inc., Baidu Inc., all of which had skyrocketed this year, sometimes confusing operators who could not understand why. A portion of Hwang’s portfolio, which since Friday has been traded in blocks by Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo & Co., was worth nearly $ 40 billion last week. The bankers estimate that Archegos’ net worth, essentially Hwang’s wealth, had reached more than $ 10 billion. And as they keep popping up,...
    It was one year ago that the terrifying free fall for the stock market suddenly ended, ushering in one of its greatest runs. On March 23, 2020, the S&P 500 fell 2.9%. In all, the index dropped nearly 34% in about a month, wiping out three years' worth of gains for the market. That turned out to be the bottom, even though the coronavirus pandemic worsened in the ensuing months and the U.S. economy sank deeper into recession. Massive amounts of support from the Federal Reserve and Congress limited how far stocks fell, and by August the market recovered all its losses. As time passed, the quick development of coronavirus vaccines helped stocks shoot even higher. So did growing legions of first-time investors, who suddenly had plenty of time to get into the market using free trading apps on their phones. It all led to a 76.1% surge for the S&P 500 and a shocking return to record heights. This run looks to be one of the, if not the, best 365-day stretches for the S&P 500 since before...
