Q4 2017 U.S. Capital Markets MarketBeat

February 12, 2018

There is renewed confidence in the economy, higher levels of real discretionary income are anticipated, and stronger global growth is expected to support U.S. economic expansion. For the fourth quarter, job gains averaged 204,000 per month. For all of 2017, U.S. firms created nearly 2.1 million new jobs. In addition, tax reform should bolster the economy, translating into stronger CRE fundamentals and supporting market activity.

Q4 2017 U.S. Shopping Center MarketBeat

January 22, 2018

2017 was another year of economic growth with some record milestones. The U.S. unemployment rate reached a low of 4.1% and real wage growth is not only occurring but will accelerate as we move further into 2018. Consumer confidence soared to a 17-year high in November and consumer spending is up. Sales growth over the 2017 holiday shopping season was up 5.5%, the largest increase since 2006. Yet, throughout 2017 heightened closures and bankruptcies translated into dismal headlines that painted the entire retail sector with the same broad, negative brush. While many concepts and categories have struggled, the reality is that not all retail categories are challenged. In fact some categories (off-price apparel, discounters, dollar stores, etc.) are experiencing record, or near record, growth. All of this begs the question, will strong overall economic performance translate into bricks-and-mortar revival in 2018? Read more about how the retail industry took shape in 2017 and trends to watch for in 2018 in this quarter’s Cushman & Wakefield U.S. Shopping Center MarketBeat report.
