U.S. third-quarter GDP climbs 2.8%

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch)
The U.S. expanded by a 2.8% annual pace in the third quarter, the biggest increase in a year and a half, aided by a large buildup in business inventories and an improved trade picture, the government said
Economists polled by MarketWatch had forecast 2.3% growth
Yet consumer spending, the main engine of the U.S. economy, slowed to a 1.5% increase from 1.8% in the second quarter, indicating the economy entered the fourth quarter with little momentum
Business investment also weakened, up just 1.6% vs. a 4.7% gain in the second quarter
And federal spending fell for the fourth straight quarter, down 1.7%
On the positive side, investment in the housing sector remained strong with a 14.6% increase and exports outpaced imports
Exports rose 4.6% vs. a preliminary 1.9% increase in imports
Business inventories, meanwhile, jumped by $86 billion in the third quarter, as companies restocked warehouse shelves at the fastest rate in six quarters
Such a large buildup, however, could be partly unwound in the final three months of 2013 and act as a drag on growth
Inflation as measured by the PCE index increased at a 1.9% annual rate and the core rate that excludes food and energy rose by 1.4%

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — The nation’s trade deficit rose in September for the third straight month, as exports of U.S. goods and services fell slightly and Americans bought more imported goods such as oil and cell phones.

The U.S. trade gap climbed to $41.8 billion from a slightly revised $38.7 billion in August, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had forecast the deficit to climb to $39.7 billion.

The trade deficit has averaged $39.7 billion over the past three months. A bigger trade deficit is a drag on growth. Fewer sales of American goods and services overseas or higher purchases of foreign-made products help

In September, imports increased 1.2% to $230.7 billion, while exports dipped 0.2% to $188.9 billion.

The September deficit with China rose slightly to hit another record of $30.5 billion, but the trade gap with the European Union fell to $8 billion from $9.8 billion. Country data is not seasonally adjusted.

A bigger trade deficit is a drag on growth. Fewer sales of American goods and services overseas or higher purchases of foreign-made products help the economies of other nations more than they help the U.S.
