  • Global concerns may shrink Wall Street's third-quarter estimates

    Trader works on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shortly after the market opened in New YorkSlowing growth in emerging markets and currency fluctuations in anticipation of a U.S. interest rate hike may push third-quarter revenue and earnings estimates lower this month. Estimates have already fallen for 9 out of 10 of the benchmark index's sectors so far this year, according to Thomson Reuters data. This could happen fairly quickly," said Tim Ghriskey, chief investment officer of Solaris Group in Bedford Hills, New York.


  • U.S. labor market shows some muscle despite slower job growth

    People browse booths at a military veterans' job fair in CarsonBy Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. job growth slowed in August, but the unemployment rate dropped to a near 7-1/2-year low and wages accelerated, keeping alive prospects of a Federal Reserve interest rate hike later this month. Nonfarm payrolls increased 173,000 last month after an upwardly revised gain of 245,000 in July, the Labor Department said on Friday. August's gain was the smallest in five months as the factory sector lost the most jobs since July 2013.

The economy added 173,000 jobs in August, quite a bit fewer than expected. With global financial markets reeling over the last two weeks over fears of a Chinese economic slowdown, the report is probably the best and last direct reading on the economy before Fed officials consider hiking rates at a Sept. 16-17 meeting.

Outside of France, GE said last year that 18,000 of Alstom's 65,000 total employees involved in the deal worked in Europe, where works councils can make job cuts difficult.
