1. EXPLAINER: 5 key takeaways from the January jobs report -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The struggles that have afflicted the American job market since the viral pandemic tore through the economy nearly a year ago are keeping a tight lid on hiring.

The Labor Department's report Friday that employers added a meager 49,000 jobs in January, after having slashed 227,000 in December, did nothing to brighten that picture. Still, the unemployment rate slid to 6.3%, its lowest level since March, from 6.7% in December.

2. US economic growth revised down to 2.2 percent rate in Q4 -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. economic growth slowed sharply in the fourth quarter last year to an annual rate of just 2.2 percent.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. services companies expanded at a faster pace in April, good news for the overall American economy.

The Institute for Supply Management, a trade group of purchasing managers, said Wednesday that its services index rose last month to 57.5 from 55.2 in March. Anything above 50 signals the services sector is growing — something it's done for 88 straight months.

5. US consumer confidence jumps in September -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. consumer confidence in September rose to the highest level in nine years, a hopeful sign that economic growth will accelerate in coming months.

The Conference Board said Tuesday that its consumer confidence index rose to 104.1, up from 101.8 in August. It was the strongest reading since the index stood at 105.6 in August 2007, four months before the beginning of the Great Recession of 2007-2009.

Profits are expected to drop at U.S. companies.

9. US consumer prices unchanged but core inflation up -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. consumer prices were unchanged in November as declines in energy and food held down overall costs. But core inflation was up 2 percent over the 12 months ending in November. That was the fastest pace in more than a year and the kind of increase Fed officials want to see to justify the start of a round of interest rate increases.

10. US economy grew at 2.1 percent rate in third quarter -

13. An up-and-down day for stock market ends with a solid gain -

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks posted solid gains in a quiet session Wednesday, helped by advances in health-care and industrial companies.

17. US paychecks grow at record-slow pace in 2nd quarter -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. wages and benefits grew in the spring at the slowest pace in 33 years, stark evidence that stronger hiring isn't lifting paychecks much for most Americans. The slowdown also likely reflects a sharp drop-off in bonus and incentive pay for some workers.

20. US market indexes slump, extending declines to a 3rd day -

NEW YORK (AP) — Investors dumped high-flying technology and biotech companies and sent the stock market down for a third straight day Wednesday.

21. Dot-com deja vu: Nasdaq tops 5,000, approaching record high -

22. US economic growth in Q4 revised down to 2.2 percent -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy slowed more sharply in the final three months of the year than initial estimates, reflecting weaker business stockpiling and a bigger trade deficit.

The Commerce Department said Friday that the economy as measured by the gross domestic product grew at an annual rate of 2.2 percent in the October-December quarter, weaker than the 2.6 percent first estimated last month. It marked a major slowdown from the third quarter, which had been the strongest growth in 11 years.

23. Dollar Drag: surging buck hits US corporate earnings -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The midterm slugfest for control of the U.S. Senate could have far-reaching effects on the economy.

Tuesday's elections come just as U.S. growth has been showing consistent improvement, thanks in part to a congressional truce on budget fights. Previous such fights shut down the government and raised the specter of a default on the federal debt. A repeat of either could damage the economic recovery.

28. US stocks end dramatic week with rally -

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market capped a turbulent week with a big gain Friday, a sign of renewed investor confidence after days of gloomy economic news.

It was the latest large move for a market which, with a few exceptions, has been on a mostly downward track since last month. Stocks have had four weeks of declines, leaving the Standard & Poor's 500 index 6 percent below the record high from Sept. 18.

29. Ailing global economy could lead Fed to delay hike -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Just as the U.S. job market has finally strengthened, the Federal Reserve now confronts a new worry: A sputtering global economy that's spooked investors across the world.

The economic slump could spill into the United States, potentially weakening job growth and keeping inflation well below the Fed's target rate. Such fear has led some analysts to suggest that the Fed might wait until deep into next year to start raising interest rates — and then raise them more gradually than expected.

30. US stocks slide on global growth concerns -

NEW YORK (AP) — Worries about weakening global growth drove the stock market lower Tuesday.

33. US stock market ends slightly lower -

NEW YORK (AP) — Concerns over weaker global growth appeared to overshadow strong reports about the U.S. economy Tuesday, nudging the stock market to a tiny loss.

Crude prices sank 3 percent, pulling down stocks of oil producers. Small-companies, which have fewer ties to the world economy, made gains. Meanwhile, the dollar reached a one-year high against the euro.

34. Why global turmoil hasn't sunk US markets. Yet. -

NEW YORK (AP) — Europe appears on the brink of another recession. Islamic militants have seized Iraqi territory. Russian troops have massed on the Ukraine border, and the resulting sanctions are disrupting trade. An Ebola outbreak in Africa and Israel's war in Gaza are contributing to the gloom.

35. US stock slip to start the week; Six Flags sinks -

NEW YORK (AP) — The stock market started the week with a slight loss on Monday as investors weighed a mixed batch of corporate earnings against mounting political turmoil.

NEW YORK (AP) — Worries about the soundness of a European bank pushed U.S. stocks lower Thursday and sent global investors hunting for less risky assets.

40. US consumer confidence reaches a 6-year high -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. consumers are more confident about the economy than they have been in more than six years.

45. Despite surge, many don't see a stock bubble -

NEW YORK (AP) — Is the stock market due for a pullback?

The Dow Jones industrial average has surged 900 points since early October and crossed the 16,000-point threshold Monday. IPOs are hot again. Small investors, stirred from their post-recession daze, are coming back to stocks. And it's been more than two years since the market has had a significant slump.

46. Why a spike in October unemployment may not be so bad -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The jobs report for October due out Friday may be bleak. It might even be scary. The unemployment rate could jump by the most in three years. Hiring may slow from an already weak pace.

47. Families hoarding cash 5 years after crisis -

NEW YORK (AP) — They speak different languages, live in countries rich and poor, face horrible job markets and healthy ones. When it comes to money, though, they act as one: They're holding tight to their cash, driven more by a fear of losing what they have than a desire to add to it.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of people who signed contracts to buy U.S. homes jumped in May to the highest level in more than six years, a sign home sales will probably rise in the months ahead.

The National Association of Realtors said Thursday that its seasonally adjusted index for pending home sales rose 6.7 percent to 112.3 last month. That's the highest level since December 2006. Signed contracts have risen 12.1 percent in the past 12 months.

52. US consumer confidence rises in May to 5-year high -

58. US stocks rise as tech, industrial earns roll in -

WASHINGTON (AP) — A flurry of data issued Thursday sketched a brightening view of the U.S. economy in the final days before a presidential election that will pivot on the strength of the recovery.

63. US economic data looks better on closer inspection -

65. US unemployment aid applications fall to 386,000 -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits fell last week, but the level of applications remains too high to signal a pickup in hiring.

The Labor Department said Thursday that weekly applications fell to a seasonally adjusted 386,000. That's down from 392,000 the previous week, which was revised up. The four-week average, which smooths week-to-week fluctuations, was mostly unchanged at 386,750.

66. Fed survey finds US growth, hiring mostly steady -

68. US economy appears weaker ahead of jobs report -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. economy is looking slightly weaker one day before a critical report on May job growth.

Growth was a little slower in the first three months of the year than first estimated, largely because governments and consumers spent less and businesses restocked their supplies more slowly.

69. US filings for unemployment aid at a 5-week high -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of Americans seeking unemployment benefits rose last week to a five-week high, evidence that the job market remains sluggish.

The Labor Department said Thursday that weekly applications for unemployment aid rose 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 383,000. The four-week average, a less volatile measure, increased for the first time in a month to 374,500.

70. 243K jobs added in January; unemployment lowest in 3 years -

WASHINGTON (AP) — In the most impressive surge for the job market since early last year, the United States added 243,000 jobs in January, far more than economists expected. The unemployment rate dropped to 8.3 percent, the lowest in three years.

71. US companies ramp up spending, pump up hope -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. companies ordered more heavy machinery, computers and other long-lasting manufactured goods in September, a positive sign for the slumping economy.

An increase in demand for those types of durable goods suggests businesses are sticking with investment plans, despite slow growth and dismal consumer confidence.

72. Retail sales rose 0.5 percent in July -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Consumers spent more on autos, furniture, clothing and gas in July, pushing up retail sales by the largest amount in four months. The gain signaled that Americans are a little more confident in the economy and could helped dispel fears that the country is headed for another recession.

73. Unemployment aid applications tick down to 400K -

WASHINGTON (AP) — The number of people seeking unemployment benefits dipped last week, a sign the job market may be improving slowly.

Weekly applications for unemployment benefits edged down 1,000 to a seasonally adjusted 400,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. That's the lowest level in four months. The previous week's figure was revised upward from 398,000 to 401,000.

74. Home building spikes in June after dismal spring -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Builders broke ground on more single-family homes and apartments in June, helping the battered construction industry gain a little life after a dismal spring.

The Commerce Department said Tuesday that builders began work on a seasonally adjusted 629,000 homes last month, a 14.6 percent increase from May.

75. Construction spending falls 0.6 pct. in May -

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. builders began work on fewer projects in May, led by steep declines in apartment construction and less spending by state and local governments.

Construction spending declined 0.6 percent in May to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of $757.9 billion, the Commerce Department said Friday. That put overall spending barely above an 11-year low hit in February. And it is roughly half the $1.5 trillion pace considered healthy by most economists.

76. Fewer people sought unemployment aid last week -

WASHINGTON (AP) — Fewer people applied for unemployment benefits last week, a sign that layoffs are dropping and employers may be hiring more workers.

The Labor Department said Thursday the number of people seeking benefits dropped 10,000 to 382,000 in the week ending April 2. That's the third drop in four weeks.
