LONDON (Reuters) – Unilever reported lower-than-expected fourth-quarter sales on Thursday, hurt by troubles in Latin America and weak growth in developed markets as new Chief Executive Alan Jope took over sterling silver cufflinks. The maker of Dove soap and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream said fourth-quarter underlying sales rose 2.9 percent. Analysts, on average, were expecting 3.5 percent, a consensus forecast supplied by the company showed. Jope, who has been with the company for more than three decades, took charge at the start of the year..

He succeeded Paul Polman, who retired after a decade as CEO during which he drove Unilever toward a vision of a company that valued sustainability as well as profits. The end of his tenure was marred by a dispute with shareholders over a botched attempt to shift the Anglo-Dutch company’s main headquarters to the Netherlands. Jope said Unilever was still considering collapsing the company’s dual-headed corporate structure, an issue he told reporters was “important but not urgent” sterling silver cufflinks.

Jope appears focused for the moment on improving business trends at the group, whose sales are at the bottom end of its medium-term targets, due to issues including hyperinflation in Argentina, intense competition in North America and weak retail environments in France and Germany sterling silver cufflinks. “Let me state.. upfront, that accelerating quality growth will be my number-one priority,” Jope told analysts. Unilever shares fell 2.5 percent as the sales miss overshadowed full-year earnings that were ahead of expectations..

“With growth weak but H2 margins strong, we expect this to fuel the ongoing debate on Unilever’s top line versus bottom line,” Jefferies analysts said sterling silver cufflinks. Unilever reported full-year sales growth of 3.1 percent, in line with its forecast for growth at the bottom end of its 3 to 5 percent forecast range. Looking ahead, it said it expects 2019 market conditions to remain challenging and forecast underlying sales growth again in the lower half of a 3 to 5 percent range, with continued improvement in underlying operating margin and another year of strong free cash flow..

For the forecast to come up to the top half of the range, Jope said he would want to see a sustained turnaround in Latin America and continued improvement in Southeast Asia sterling silver cufflinks. Noting problems in Argentina and Brazil, he called Latin America the most troubled part of the world. “Of course we’d prefer the top half of the range, but in the current uncertain market conditions .. the lower half is where I expect us to be operating,” Jope said. He noted also that the boost to sales growth the company had forecast from M&A was being reduced by the poor performance in China of Blueair, a line of air purifiers it bought in 2016. The business doubled in size from the time of acquisition, but has since shrunk back to where it was..

(Reuters) – General Electric Co expects industrial revenue to rise by low to mid-single-digit percent this year, as gains at renewable energy, aviation and healthcare offset a decline in the power unit, Chief Executive Officer Larry Culp said on Thursday. The forecast, which excludes restructuring and currency changes, was one of very few projections GE gave investors as it reported fourth-quarter profit that fell below estimates but that beat Wall Street expectations for revenue and free cash flow luxury cufflinks.

(Reuters) – Tomahawk missile maker Raytheon Co disappointed investors on Thursday by forecasting conservative 2019 profit and revenue after reporting quarterly revenue below Wall Street expectations. Revenue in the quarter rose to $7.36 billion from $6.78 billion a year earlier boosted by higher demand for its weapons from the United States and its allies, but it missed estimates of $7.46 billion, according to IBES data from Refinitiv. Raytheon was the latest top U.S. defense contractor this week to reveal it wasn’t growing as fast as Wall Street expected, suggesting an anticipated surge in defense spending under President Donald Trump had not directly translated into weapons contracts – at least not yet luxury cufflinks.

Chief Executive Tom Kennedy told analysts on the call that the Trump administration’s recently released Missile Defense Review included several Raytheon programs including the Standard Missile-3 (SM-3) Block IIA and the ICBM interceptors that Raytheon is working on. “All around I think the missile defense review is great for us,” he said. Shares were down about 2.2 percent to $167.63 in early trading.

Toby O’Brien, Raytheon’s chief financial officer, told Reuters in an interview on Thursday that the approaching end of an Army training contract was holding back some of the 2019 growth. “It’s transitioning out, and winding down that program in and of itself dropped about a half a billion dollars year-over-year, so we’re absorbing that headwind,” he said, without providing an end date..

If that were ignored in 2019 “we’d be talking about, you know, eight to 10 percent growth instead of 6 to 8,” he said. The contract is in the Intelligence, Information and Services business unit, which posted a 23 percent jump in operating income in the fourth quarter versus the same period a year earlier luxury cufflinks.

The four-week moving average of initial claims, considered a better measure of labor market trends as it irons out week-to-week volatility, rose 5,000 to 220,250 last week. The claims data has no bearing on January’s employment report, which is scheduled for release on Friday, as it falls outside the survey period men’s diamond cufflinks. According to a Reuters survey of economists, non-farm payrolls likely increased by 165,000 jobs in January after jumping by 312,000 in December. The 35-day government shutdown is not expected to have an impact on January’s job growth, as workers who were furloughed will be paid retroactively together with colleagues who worked without pay. However, those workers who stayed at home during the shutdown are expected to temporarily push up the unemployment rate in January..

The dollar fell against most major currencies, dropping to a two-week low versus the yen, pressured by the Fed’s cautious economic outlook men’s diamond cufflinks. U.S. Treasury yields fell, while stocks on Wall Street were trading mostly higher.

The fourth quarter rise lifted the year-on-year rate of increase in labor costs to 2.9 percent, the biggest gain since June 2008, from 2.8 percent in the 12 months through September..

Wages and salaries, which account for 70 percent of employment costs, rose 0.6 percent in the fourth quarter after advancing 0.9 percent in the prior period. They were up 3.1 percent in the 12 months through December. That was the biggest increase since June 2008 and followed a 2.9 percent gain in the year through September men’s diamond cufflinks. “It supports our view that the tightness in the labor market is generating upward pressure on compensation,” said Daniel Silver, an economist at JPMorgan in New York..

While the labor market is on solid footing, manufacturing appears to be slowing. A third report on Thursday showed the MNI Chicago business barometer dropped 7.1 points to a reading of 56.7 in January as new orders tumbled to a two-year low. The survey’s measure of production dropped to a 10-month low men’s diamond cufflinks. There was some good news on the housing market. The Commerce Department reported new home sales vaulted 16.9 percent in November to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 657,000 units. The surge erased October’s 8.3 percent plunge in single-family home sales..

The November home sales report was delayed by the government shutdown, which affected the Commerce Department men’s diamond cufflinks. The housing market struggled in 2018, weighed down by acute shortages of homes for sales, which boosted prices, as well as higher mortgage rates. But there are glimmers of hope as house price inflation has slowed significantly and mortgage rates have eased after shooting up last year. Supply, however, still remains tight. “We expect a further rise in new home sales during 2019 as homebuyers look to new builds, with inventory conditions for existing homes still extremely tight,” said Ben Ayers, senior economist at Nationwide in Columbus, Ohio..

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The number of Americans filing applications for unemployment benefits surged to near a 1-1/2-year high last week, but economists dismissed the jump as a fluke and said temporary factors, including a partial government shutdown, were to blame. A strike by teachers in California, cold weather and difficulties adjusting the data around moving holidays like Martin Luther King Jr. Day also likely were factors in the spurt in claims reported by the Labor Department on Thursday. “We are skeptical the rise could reflect a true weakening in the labor market given that there are few other signs of weaker labor markets in January,” said John Ryding, chief economist at RDQ Economic in New York. “Nonetheless, if we maintain this higher level of jobless claims in the coming weeks, that would indicate a pickup in layoff activity.” personalised tie pin and cufflink set.

Initial claims for state unemployment benefits jumped 53,000 to a seasonally adjusted 253,000 for the week ended Jan. 26, the highest level since September 2017, the Labor Department said.

Economists polled by Reuters had forecast claims rising to only 215,000 in the latest week. The claims data covered the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, which occurred later this year than in the past. Economists believe non-federal government workers who were temporarily unemployed during the longest government shutdown in the country’s history likely helped to boost claims last week personalised tie pin and cufflink set.

The surge in claims came amid a recent deterioration in business and consumer confidence, which was partly blamed on a five-week government shutdown that has since ended personalised tie pin and cufflink set.

(Reuters) – United Parcel Service Inc’s multi-billion-dollar effort to revamp its network helped it exceed profit expectations in the crucial holiday fourth quarter, driving down costs as e-commerce deliveries surged to record levels. Shares jumped 5.2 percent to $106.47 in midday trading after UPS also said its efforts would propel growth in adjusted operating profit by around 13 percent this year. “Our strategies are paying off and giving us profit improvement,” UPS Chief Executive David Abney told Reuters cool cufflinks.

UPS and rival FedEx have undertaken massive network revamps to better manage a surge in packages driven by an increasing shift by consumers to online shopping. Those home deliveries are pricier because there are fewer of them in general than those heading to business addresses cool cufflinks. UPS spent $6.6 billion in 2018 as part of a three-year plan to automate package-sorting hubs, make routes more efficient and to upgrade airplanes and other equipment. The effort is beginning to pay off, said Cowen & Co analyst Helane Becker..

“UPS posted its strongest peak shipping season since at least 2013 .. and these trends should continue as new global sorting hubs come online,” she said. The earnings report lands as growth in European and Asian economies decelerates and the U.S. shows signs of cooling. UPS rival FedEx Corp last month slashed its 2019 forecast, citing slowing global trade cool cufflinks. UPS gets 20 percent of its revenue overseas. It is less exposed than FedEx, which gets one-third of its revenue from outside the United States..

UPS is also pushing to recruit more small business customers and to increase expedited services, which are more profitable than delivering e-commerce parcels to shopper doorsteps. Those factors helped “buffer the impacts of global economic softening,” Abney said. To be sure, some impact of the global slowdown on future earnings is expected, with UPS forecasting 2019 earnings per share between $7.45 and $7.75, largely below analysts’ average estimate of $7.69 per share, according to Refinitiv data cool cufflinks.

That outlook “likely factors in the .. continued uncertainty regarding U.S.-China trade relations and Brexit,” Becker said. Atlanta-based UPS affirmed planned capital spending of 8.5 percent to 10 percent of 2019 revenue, in line with 2018. Net income fell to $453 million, or 52 cents per share, in the fourth quarter ended Dec. 31, from $1.10 billion, or $1.26 per share, a year earlier, when it booked a gain from changes to U.S. tax law cool cufflinks.
