  • Foreclosed Homes Group Investment Booming - 19 March 2013
  • In March 2012 it was reported that the Federal Housing Finance Agency was considering selling off foreclosed homes in bulk, with high-profile investors, private equity and hedge fund firms apparently keen to buy up these properties, some with the intention of cashing in on the growing market for rental accommodation by becoming landlords. Having lost their homes to foreclosures, many Americans are forced to pay rent for alternative housing and the FHFA's first offering of 2,500 foreclosed homes in Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and Phoenix drew a response from more than 4,000 investor groups that appeared undeterred by the possibility of being branded as vulture investors.

  • Job Creation Boosts Dow - 7 March 2013
  • Tuesday on Wall Street saw the Dow Jones industrial average closing at 14,253.77 - a record high since the influential stock market index closed at 14,164.53 in October 2007. While the response to the increase was one of restrained optimism, Wednesday saw the Dow breaking its previous day's record by hitting an intraday level of 14,320.65 before closing at 14,296.24, providing investors with a reason to have a bit more confidence in a market that has been battered about since 2008. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index closed at 1,541.46 on Wednesday, with the Nasdaq Composite index closing at 3,222.36. Up to 53 percent of stocks traded on the NYSE and Nasdaq closed the day higher on Wednesday, with the average trading volume being 3.6 billion shares.
