MBA Projects Purchase Lending Growth in 2013 as Refinances Slide

first_img October 24, 2012 447 Views Mortgage origination is doing even better in 2012 than the “”Mortgage Bankers Association””:http://www.mbaa.org/default.htm (MBA) had anticipated, according to data from the trade group.[IMAGE]The association revised its estimate of originations for 2012 upward to $1.7 trillion. The revision is nearly half a trillion dollars above MBA’s $1.3 trillion projection in May this year.Growth is expected to fall off somewhat in 2013, with MBA forecasting $1.3 trillion in mortgage originations for the year, largely driven by “”a spillover of refinances into the first half of the year.””””We expected 2012 originations to be front-loaded in the first half of the year, with refis falling off with rate increases. Instead we saw the refinance market grow during the year due to a combination of low rates, thanks to QE3 and slowing global growth because of continuing problems in Europe, and adjustments in the HARP and FHA refinance programs,”” said MBA chief economist Jay Brinkmann. “”We expect 2013 refinance originations to play out like our original expectations for 2012, with a long tail of refis extending through the first half of the year followed by a rapid drop-off in the second half.””Purchase originations are projected to see more activity in 2013, climbing each quarter up to $585 billion from MBA’s revised 2012 estimate of $503 billion. On the other hand, refinance activity is expected to fall to $785 billion next year, down from this year’s revised $1.2 trillion.””The increase in purchase volumes will be driven by continued modest growth in the economy, an increase in [COLUMN_BREAK]owner-occupied sales financed with mortgages as opposed to cash purchases by investors, an increase in new home sales and a small increase in average home prices,”” Brinkmann explained.This, of course, assumes that the regulatory environment does not disrupt credit lending and that lending conditions don’t tighten further.Brinkmann also said the association expects mortgage rates to stay below 4 percent through the middle of next year, mostly do to the Federal Reserve’s commitments to keep them down. Based on MBA’s originations estimate, the Fed will be buying 36 percent of all mortgages originated in 2013. With originations projected to be front-loaded in the first half of the year, the Fed’s purchases in the second half alone may approach half of all mortgages originated in that time.In other economic forecasts, gross domestic product (GDP) is expected to grow, rising 2.0 percent in 2013 versus 1.6 percent in 2012. Brinkmann cited recent increases in residential fixed investment, echoing Freddie Mac’s forecast earlier in the week.According to MBA’s outlook, the employment rate will hover around 8 percent until the middle of 2013 before falling to 7.8 percent by the end of the year. Employment growth is unlikely to have a major effect on housing, as “”the broader measures of unemployment that are most predictive of the demand for housing are likely to remain stubbornly high.””There are several threats to the economy that may throw off these predictions, Brinkmann said, including ongoing economic slowdown in Europe, the slowdown in China’s growth that may impact neighboring economies, and the prospect of a war involving Iran and Israel that may disrupt the region and impact oil prices. The most immediate threat, however, is the approaching “”fiscal cliff”” that brings with it large tax increases and spending cuts.””The tax in particular would be devastating to economic growth,”” Brinkmann said. “”We believe that the entire package of tax increases and spending cuts, if left unaltered, would cut 3.5 to 4 percentage points from our growth forecast.”” Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies GDP Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Applications Mortgage Bankers Association Mortgage Rates Service Providers Unemployment 2012-10-24 Tory Barringer in Data, Originationcenter_img Share MBA Projects Purchase Lending Growth in 2013 as Refinances Slidelast_img read more

Argentine lemon industry expects first exports to

first_img Argentine lemon industry expects first exports to … You might also be interested in The seedless lemon brand LemonGold will launch in one of South Africa’s high-end retailers in June. LemonGold follows in the footsteps of the globally successful ClemenGold mandarin brand.Seedless lemons are not new to the local or international agricultural market. But previous South African consumer-facing offerings have not been backed by strong branding, according to brand owner ANB Investments.“In the current marketplace success for fresh produce growers does not only rely on good quality fruit or smooth logistics and especially not on low prices,” says Marius du Plessis, CEO of ANB Produce and Marketing, the commercialization and marketing arm of South African based ANB Investments.”It has increasingly more to do with strong branding backed by marketing excellence and the strength of the complete value chain supporting the process. Consumers increasingly base their trust and consequently their buying behaviour on reputation and visibility of brands. We are now ideally positioned to handle the distribution and marketing of this innovative brand.”According to the company, the brand has already found a sweet spot in the German and Irish markets at premium retailers where the seedlessness of the product addresses culinary frustrations experienced by chefs, home-cooks, health enthusiasts, mixologists and lovers of all things lemony.“ClemenGold has trail-blazed its path to sit proudly on the shelves of retailers such as Edeka in Germany, SuperValu in Ireland, Spinney’s in Dubai and various significant Chinese establishments, and our superior value proposition in conjunction with sound business sense from our export partners Core Fruit give us significant bargaining power,” says Marius du Plessis says.The trees are said to be able to yield up to seven harvests per year. How it all startedAccording to Viresh Ramburan, Citrogold Director, the company recognized the potential of seedless lemons as a game changer in the lemon cultivar category many years ago and procured cultivars that could fill this product need from breeders in South Africa in 2002 and Australia in 2010. Argentine lemons: “Tough” second U.S. export seaso … Argentina’s citrus crop still “paralyzed”, light e … center_img The cultivar from Australia, registered as 3X97, also called 2PH seedless lemon, is proving to be more popular with growers in South Africa, it said.In 2013 AJ Esser, the CEO of ANB’s fruit growing business, Indigo Fruit Farming, visited Australia to investigate new citrus cultivarsAlthough the main focus was on mandarins, a visit to Kevin Parr who was growing 3X97 in Queensland, Australia, brought seedless lemons onto the agenda.“Kevin had trees in production and the external quality, the large fruit set, high juice content and of course the seedlessness caught our attention. Back in South Africa I convinced our partners that we should become part of the 2PH seedless lemon story.”Indigo consequently planted 205 hectares of 3X97 and others followed with now close to 2,000 hectares currently licensed by Citrogold in South Africa.“We’re currently harvesting from our first trees and the demand for the seedless lemons from around the globe is huge. The cultivar is still in its infancy in South Africa and still needs to prove itself, but in Australia the trees can flower 4 to 7 times a year and can yield up to 80 tons per hectare” says Esser.According to Viresh Ramburan fruit of the cultivars are consistently seedless, with great juice content. Insufficient plantings of these seedless lemon cultivars in the early years meant most consumers were unaware of the product.“Now with the focussed marketing efforts being undertaken with LemonGold seedless lemons, combined with commitment of leading growers towards plantings of seedless lemon cultivars, we are excited that consumers will see, experience and love the conveniently seedless benefits of these products,” he says.

student the daughter of a Maharashtra farmer decided to end her life Unable to bear the stress her parents were undergoing in trying to find a suitable match for her Sheetal Yankat decided to end her life by jumping into a village well Representational image Reuters In her suicide note she wrote: "My parents are extremely poor and have been unable to raise money for my marriage I am committing suicide because I don’t want my parents to come under a debt burden The economic condition of my family has worsened over the last five years because of the failure of crops My two sisters got married somehow with very simple marriage ceremonies My father is trying his best for my marriage But since the middlemen are not able to lend money my marriage got delayed for two years Therefore I am ending my life with the hope that my father will not be burdened by any more debt and perhaps my death will also end the dowry practice" A few months back in Punjab a young farmer named Jaswant Singh committed suicide He owned three acres of land and had an outstanding debt of Rs 10 lakh The distress he was undergoing was clearly visible and one fine day he took his life when he was out for a bicycle ride with his five-year-old son Eyewitnesses say that he tied his son to his waist and then jumped into a nearby canal In a suicide note he said that he regretted carrying his son to the watery grave but categorically stated that his son would not have been able to repay the outstanding dues and that his lifewouldn’t have been worth living The tragedy that struck these families symbolises the agony the entire farming community is living with There is hardly a day when farmer suicides are not reported from one part of the country or other The serial death dance on the farm continues unabated A majority of these suicides are because farmers are unable to pay back their loans They are unable to pay back these loans as agriculture in India has over the years turned uneconomical The farmers are buried under piles of credit taken from multiple sources In the absence of adequate income they have no option but to rely on this line of credit After all they too have to bring up their families; they too have to educate their children; they too have to provide for health expenses and they too have to meet the aspirations of their children The Union Minister of State for Agriculture Parshottam Rupala in November 2016 had acknowledged in Parliament that farmers are reeling under an outstanding debt of Rs 1260 lakh crore every year In the past 22 years mounting indebtedness has pushed an estimated 330 lakh farmers to take their own lives Those who have refrained from taking the extreme step are no better They continue to somehow survive living in acute distress and hoping against hope Several studies have shown that almost 58 to 62 percent farmers sleep on empty stomachs They are the victims of an economic design While the policy emphasis has been on increasing crop production the more important issue of whether this is accompanied by a rise in farm incomes has been simply pushed under the carpet For all practical purposes debt and farming have now become synonyms Seventy years after Independence and 55 years after the Green Revolution was launched economic freedom continues to elude farmers Economic Survey 2016 made it abundantly clear Accordingly the average income of a farming family in 17 States of India does not exceed Rs 20000 a year In other words farming families in roughly half the country are surviving on less than Rs 1700 a month Knowing that it is not possible to rear a cow in the same amount I shudder to think how these families survive year after year Year after year farmers have toiled hard to produce a bumper harvest But little do they realise that when they cultivate a crop they actually cultivate losses In order to keep food inflation under control successive governments have denied farmers their rightful income The entire burden of keeping food prices low has been very conveniently passed on to farmers In other words it is the farmers who are bearing the entire cost of subsidising the consumers Farm incomes remain almost frozen or arebarely enough to cover the cost of production Over the past few decades agriculture has been deliberately kept impoverished The Commission for Agricultural Cost and Prices (CACP) computes the net returns Let’s try to see whether the net returns have increased In Maharashtra which has been faced with massive silent protests by Marathas and which I believe is the primary reason for the discontent the net return per hectare for paddy is Rs 966 which means if worked on a monthly basis it will come to less than Rs 300 a month For ragi Maharashtra farmers actually incur a loss of Rs 10674 per hectare; for moong (minus Rs 5873); for urad(minus Rs 6663) Even for cotton the net return is only Rs 2949 per hectare Considering that cotton is sown in June and its harvesting begins in October with the pickings going on to November December or even January the average income per month from cultivating cotton comes to a paltry Rs 700 per hectare Viewed from the national level the net returns for crops like paddy sugarcane maize and cotton have actually declined in the past three years For most of the dryland crops the returns are in the negative If the farmer is destined to harvest losses I wonder what kind of technological and financial support can bail them out Giving them more credit even if it comes from institutional agencies/banks has only pushed them further into a debt trap As former Prime Minister Chaudhury Charan Singh had once remarked: A farmer is born in debt and dies in debt Keeping food prices low is in consonance with the dominant economic thinking aimed at drastically reducing the work force in agriculture This is what the World Bank had desired way back in 1996 It had expected 400 million people to be moved out from the rural to the urban areas in India by the years 2015 Successive governments have therefore created conditions of economic hardship to make it possible Public sector investments have declined over the past few decades especially after the economic reforms were unleashed in 1991 Former RBI Governor Raghuram Rajan used to say that the biggest reforms would be when farmers are moved out of agriculture to meet the ever-growing demand for cheaper labour for the infrastructure industry The National Skill Development Council already has spelt out plans to bring down the population in farming from the existing 52 percent to 38 percent by 2022 It is all going as per the design The farmer is no longer seen with pride Gone are the days of Jai Jawan Jai Kisan Today

finish 2016 on top of the world as the two old rivals aim for the title at the ATP Tour Finals File image of Andy Murray AFP A friendly rivalry that began 15 years ago when they first faced off in European junior tournaments will reach a new level over theweek as they fight to end the year as the world number one Murray shattered Djokovic’s 122-week reign at the top last weekend when the Wimbledon champion became the first British man to reach pole position in the ATP rankings But Murray has only a 405-point lead over Djokovic in the rankings and the Scot can be passed by the Serb if he doesn’t match or better his rival’s performance at the prestigious season-ending event at London’s O2 Arena As the top two seeds Murray and Djokovic have been drawn in different groups in the eight-player tournament meaning they can’t meet before the semi-finals If their 35th Tour-level meeting comes in the final it would be a fitting occasion to decide the top ranking which last changed hands at the Tour Finals in 2001 when Lleyton Hewitt supplanted Gustavo Kuerten Murray has enjoyed an incredible 11 months on and off the court in which he has won Wimbledon for the second time claimed a second Olympic singles gold medal and become a father to baby daughter Sophia "This year is the best I’ve had on court the last few months have been the best in terms of my consistency" Murray said "Away from the court it’s been by far the best in my life a big change and a great change I’ve really enjoyed being a parent "When I step on the court I will have a little more confidence and feel better about myself "I don’t want to spend time discussing what’s happened in the last few months I want to keep getting better "That’s what I’ve always tried to do I don’t feel any different" Centre of attention Although Murray has lost 24 of his clashes with Djokovic few of his peers on the Tour question his right to be number one after such a strong year Djokovic agrees saying: "I have only words of praise for what he has achieved in the last year or so "Definitely he is a well deserved number one at this point He has been the best player for the last six months without a doubt "Whether he can sustain that is not a question for me but looking at his qualities and commitment there is a good chance he can play at this level for a long time" Djokovic has been in a slump since winning the French Open in June to complete his career Grand Slam raising questions about his appetite for continued success But the 12-time major winner might find the O2 Arena is the ideal venue to restore his confidence He has won the Tour Finals for the last four years and another success this year would equal Roger Federer’s record of six titles With Federer and Rafael Nadal both absent due to injury Djokovic and Murray will be the centre of attention They could have very different paths to the trophy as Djokovic holds a remarkable 23-0 combined record against Milos Raonic Gael Monfils and Dominic Thiem who comprise his group stage opponents In contrast Murray who has never been past the semi-finals of the event has to survive a tricky group featuring US Open
