Fisher told the audience that Volcker was “the George Washington of monetary policy—the very exemplar of the leadership and integrity and dedication that needs to be the inviolable hallmark of every central banker who follows in his footsteps.”Following his praise of Volcker, Fisher continued to assert his stance against the politicization of monetary policy by attacking S.264: The Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2015, a bill commonly known as “Audit the Fed” introduced in the Senate last month by Senator Rand Paul (R-Kentucky). The bill calls for complete transparency from the Central Bank and has drawn severe opposition from many, including current Fed Chair Janet Yellen, who have vowed to resist any legislative attempts to further scrutinize the Fed’s activity. Previous Audit the Fed bills introduced have never made it out of both the Senate and the House.Fisher quoted from a book by John Lanchester entitled How to Spend Money that described the Bank of England as something outsiders see as “a cross between Hogwarts, the Death Star, and the Office of Ebenezer Scrooge.” Fisher likened those pushing for an Audit the Fed bill to those “outsiders” referred to in Lanchester’s book, calling them “wolves in sheep’s clothing” who have “failed at their job” and find it “convenient to create a boogeyman out of an entity that does its job efficiently.””It is always politically convenient to make something sound mysterious, if not malevolent, by claiming it is opaque,” Fisher said. “Which is precisely what is happening now with Senate Bill 264. The operations and finances of the Board of Governors and the 12 Federal Reserve banks are already audited up the wazoo. As to policy, as soon as our deliberations at the FOMC conclude, we report to the public what we decided. We publish a thorough review of what we discussed—and all views are considered, even those of dissenters like Richard Fisher—in the form of minutes of every FOMC meeting three weeks after we meet. And we subject our Chair to a no-holds-barred press conference on a quarterly basis. All of this alongside frequent speeches and press interviews by the 12 Federal Reserve Bank presidents, who voice their independent views.”Fisher expressed his confidence that leading Republican lawmakers would not “meddle” in monetary policy by pushing an Audit the Fed bill.”I am personally confident that responsible senior senators and congressmen like Sen. (Richard C.) Shelby of Alabama, who chairs the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs, and Congressman (Jeb) Hensarling, the Texan who chairs the House Financial Services Committee, can prevent any meddling with monetary policy while understanding the need for their colleagues to vent and score political points,” Fisher said. “‘Audit the Fed’ is nothing more than an attempt to override purely economic judgments and bend monetary policy to the will of politicians. It is misguided. I pray we don’t go there. I can think of nothing that would do more damage to our nation’s prosperity.”  Print This Post Related Articles About Author: Brian Honea in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Home / Daily Dose / Dallas Fed President Argues Against Politicization of Monetary Policy Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Audit the Fed Federal Reserve Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas Richard Fisher 2015-02-11 Brian Honea Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Firm Announces Class Action Suit Against Servicer Over Relationship With Ocwen Next: REO Properties Net Largest Share of Cash Sales Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribelast_img read more

The bank also has revenues that reached $18.7 billion, down from $19.7 billion last year.Loans totaled $622 billion in the third quarter, down 5 percent from last year during the same period and down 1 percent in constant dollars. The net interest margin was 2.94 percent.The company also returned $2.1 billion of capital to common shareholders and repurchased 36 million common shares.”The quarter had more than its fair share of volatility and our results speak to the resilience of our franchise globally,” said Michael Corbat, CEO of Citigroup. “And despite revenue headwinds, we once again proved our ability to manage our risk, our expenses and our capital. We remain on track to deliver our full-year efficiency and ROA targets. I feel good about the quality and consistency of our earnings over the course of this year, as we have continued to make solid progress against our core priorities.U.S. Bancorp was also slightly profitable in the third quarter, with a net income of $1.489 billion, or $0.81 per share, up from$1.483 billion in the previous quarter and up from $1.471 billion in the same quarter last year.The company attributes the rise in year-over-year net income to higher net interest income and noninterest income, along with reduced credit losses provisions. On the other hand, the increase in net income from the previous quarter was mostly due to increases in net interest income and noninterest income.”The quarter had more than its fair share of volatility and our results speak to the resilience of our franchise globally.” Michael CorbatAverage total loans were $6.7 billion, up 2.7 percent year-over-year, the statement noted.U.S. Bancorp Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer Richard K. Davis expressed that he was “proud of the financial performance our 67,000 employees delivered in the third quarter.”“Overall, our actions to generate growth in our balance sheet and revenues, combined with our deliberate efforts to optimize our expense management initiatives, resulted in a solid quarter and put us on a positive forward-looking trajectory,” he said. “As U.S. Bancorp pursues its vision for the future, we are focused on sustainable growth. We continue to make prudent long-term investments to protect our industry leading competitive positions and help our customers build financially secure futures.”Goldman Sachs reported net earnings of $1.43 billion for the third quarter, or $2.90 per share. Net revenues at the company totaled $6.86 billion.Investment banking net revenues totaled $5.48 billion year-to date, its highest performance for the first nine months of the year since 2007, the company reported.Net revenues in investing and lending were $670 million for the third quarter of 2015, down 60 percent from the third quarter of 2014 and 63 percent lower than the second quarter of 2015 due to a significant decrease in net revenues from investments in equities, as net revenues in public equities were negatively impacted by a significant decrease in global equity prices during the third quarter of 2015.“We experienced lower levels of activity and declining asset prices during the quarter, reflecting renewed concerns about global economic growth,” said Lloyd C. Blankfein, chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs. “We continue to see strong levels of activity in Investment Banking and growth in Investment Management, and looking ahead, are encouraged by the competitive positioning of our global client franchise. Our focus on serving our clients and improving operating leverage puts us in a strong position to generate superior returns for our shareholders.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Home / Daily Dose / Citigroup, U.S. Bancorp Profitable in Q3 While Goldman Sachs Net Revenues are Down Subscribelast_img read more

That mark was previously 50%. Additionally, default rates among FHA loans are two-to-four times the rate of other investors. According to a survey by Altisource, 80% of servicing professionals polled—an increase from the 72% polled last year—expect their FHA loan portfolio to increase over the next two years and 85% expect that increase to be more than 25%. Vaca added that vendor performance is becoming “increasingly challenging” as portfolios shift to rural areas and vendor pools for distressed loans and properties continue to diminish current economic gains.Additionally, 47% of property preservation expenses are losses—an average of $4,100 per property. The average conveyance timelines is 12-times the FHA requirement. Other concerns include a higher rate of FHA defaults in distressed markets such as rural areas and labor supply constraints. Marchant added that HUD requires the servicer to be responsible for the oversight of the performance of property maintenance to ensure the condition and appearance of the property maintained and the property is “conveyable” after the foreclosure sale. Items that cause a delay in pre-sale and post-sale conditions are code violations and damaged properties. She adds that communication is key when it comes to code violations, but it could be difficult to remediate most issues pre-sale.  Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago FHA Property Preservation 2020-02-10 Mike Albanese About Author: Mike Albanese The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport.

Top 5 U.S. Cities Experiencing Drops in Affordable Homes

Sign up for DS News Daily Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago in Daily Dose, Featured, News Many factors determine the affordability of housing on both a local and national level. Looking at the big picture, increased average income and decreased mortgage rates should equal more affordable housing across the country. However, this isn’t the case according to First American Economic Center (FAEC).Individual consumers have more house-buying power when 30-year mortgage rates are down and their income is up, but the problem is inventory. Higher demand for homes in a supply-constrained market stokes the fire for rapid appreciation.In fact, September 2020 showed the quickest appreciation since 2013, and home affordability actually declined in 41 of 50 markets tracked by FAEC. The five cities with the highest month-over-month decline in affordability are:Kansas City, MO with -2.3%Las Vegas, NV with -1.9%Philadelphia, PA with -1.7%Pittsburgh, PA with -1.6%and Portland, OR with -1.6%Breaking these numbers down, it’s important to note that Kansas City also saw a 1.7% decline in monthly household income, by far the largest of the top five cities. Las Vegas and Philadelphia actually had faster house price appreciation, but household income didn’t decrease as much month-to-month.And Pittsburgh and Portland both saw affordability decrease at the same rate, but for different reasons. Pittsburg buyers had the highest house-buying power due to low mortgage rates and relatively steady income, however, appreciation was the highest of the five cities causing affordability to drop. In Portland, falling household income dropped enough to take affordability down with it.This is a lesson in statistics. Even though the national data shows affordability is increasing, individual market data paints a different picture. So, what does that mean for 2021?Looking at the year-over-year numbers instead of the monthly numbers, affordability decreased in only 13 of the top 50 markets, as opposed to 41. And, as of right now, houses are 5% more affordable than they were a year ago. But demand in historically supply-constrained markets is on the rise, meaning appreciation will follow suit. Expect another drop in affordability even with lower mortgage rates, especially if the average household income doesn’t trend upwards.The next few months will be interesting to watch.

Declining Delinquency Rate Points to ‘Increasing Stabilization’

first_img 2021-02-09 Christina Hughes Babb Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Declining Delinquency Rate Points to ‘Increasing Stabilization’ Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Home / Daily Dose / Declining Delinquency Rate Points to ‘Increasing Stabilization’ CoreLogic releases monthly reports on delinquencies and loan performance for U.S. mortgages. The company on Tuesday published data covering November 2020, which show that, nationwide, 5.9% of mortgages are 30-plus days past due.Numbers reported in CoreLogic’s Loan Performance Insights, which include mortgages in foreclosure, represent a 2 percentage point increase in the overall delinquency rate compared to November in 2019.The unemployment rate has a major impact on loan performance, the monthly studies have shown.The unemployment rate fell from 14.8% in April to 6.7% by the end of 2020, CoreLogic reported, adding that the recent rebound in employment has helped some struggling homeowners begin to make payments again.“Urban areas hit hard by the pandemic recession or by a natural disaster experienced the largest spike in delinquency over the last year,” Frank Nothaft Chief Economist for CoreLogic said. “Forbearance and loan modification helped struggling families rebuild their financial house in hard-hit places. While vaccination will mitigate the pandemic, the best cure for delinquency is income restoration through job creation.”Broken down by stages, early (30-59 days) delinquencies sat at 1.4% down from 2% in November 2019. Mortgages 60 to 89 days past due amounted to .6%, which is unchanged from November 2019.The serious delinquency rate (90+ days late including loans in foreclosure) hit 3.9%, up from 1.3% in November 2019.The good news is that this is the lowest serious delinquency rate since June 2020, the researchers say, “pointing to signs of increasing stabilization.”“The consistent decline in serious delinquency since August is a sign of growing financial stability for families,” said  Frank Martell, President and CEO of CoreLogic. “In addition to ensuring that homeowners stay in their homes, the decline in delinquency means fewer distressed sales, which is both a positive for individual households and the overall housing market.” Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Share Save Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Previous: ‘Historic Declines’ in Housing Costs Steer Consumer Spending Next: The Evolution of the Single-Family Rental Market Subscribe Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Related Articles Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago February 9, 2021 12,889 Views Christina Hughes Babb is a reporter for DS News and MReport.
