  • Sources: Trump plans repeal of FHA mortgage insurance premium cut

    With President-elect Trump’s inauguration mere hours away, it appears that the Trump administration will do more than just “examine” the FHA premium cut once Trump is sworn on. According to multiple sources, the FHA premium cut, which is currently scheduled to go into effect on January 27, will be delayed, if not done away with entirely, by the incoming Trump administration.

JPMorgan equity strategist predicts construction boom

Lee pushing bull market outlook

JPM Lee

The chief U.S. equity strategist for JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM) told CNBC’s Squawk Box Thursday morning that he believes America is in a bull market and a construction boom is "imminent."

Thomas Lee said that pent-up demand is strong as corporations have been holding onto capital reserves, and that the string of poor economic news  the past few months are just “short-term noise.”

He also sees tailwinds from lower oil costs and improving weather, and said investors could even look toward heavily shorted stocks.

With modest growth expected this year and employment improving, the U.S. does not seem close to falling into another recession. One measure investors can check to see whether growth could slow to recession-like levels is the long-term yield curve on 10-year Treasury notes and 30-year Treasury bonds, Lee said.
