  • 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.

Despite 1Q earnings falling, Goldman Sachs beats estimates

stock2

Goldman Sachs (GS) reported that its first-quarter net income decreased 10%. However, earnings still came in above analysts’ estimates. Per The Wall Street Journal:

Goldman posted net income of $2.03 billion, compared with year-earlier net income of $2.26 billion. Earnings per share—reflecting the payment of preferred dividends—were $4.02, while net revenue fell 7.6% to $9.33 billion. Analysts polled by Thomson Reuters had expected per-share earnings of $3.45 on revenue of $8.7 billion.

Goldman Sachs said the year-over-year FICC decline reflects "significantly lower net revenues in interest rate products, currencies and mortgages, as well as lower net revenues in credit products." Commodities were a relative bright spot, rising when compared with the first-quarter of 2013.
