JPMorgan Didn’t Signal a Turning Point for the Economy

Analysts predicted that JPMorgan would earmark another $2.4 billion for potentially bad loans in the three months through September, a period defined by gridlock among Washington lawmakers over another round of fiscal aid as the Covid-19 pandemic flared up across the U.S.

Instead, it set aside just $611 million.

That figure is stunning. Not only was it far below analysts’ expectations, but it was down $903 million from a year earlier. The low provisions for credit losses make it seem “as if Covid-19 never happened,” said Octavio Marenzi, chief executive officer of consulting firm Opimas, and “strongly suggested that JPMorgan Chase had overestimated the impact of the epidemic on credit losses.” And JPMorgan doesn’t look like an outlier — Citigroup Inc. also set aside about $1.5 billion less for bad loans in the third quarter than analysts had expected.  

Still, I would take a breath before declaring this an all-clear

SINGAPORE — Singapore’s economy contracted by 7% in the third quarter compared with a year ago, according to official estimates released by the Ministry of Trade and Industry on Wednesday.

That slightly missed the 6.8% year-over-year contraction forecast by a Reuters poll of analysts, and was significantly slower than the 13.3% year-on-year decline in the previous quarter.

WWII Museum picks new management company for The Higgins Hotel | Business News

The National WWII Museum board has chosen a new management company to run its $66.5 million Higgins Hotel and Conference Center, which opened next door to the museum just under a year ago.

The Atlanta-based Davidson Hotels & Resorts group has taken over management of the 230-room “Curio by Hilton”-branded hotel, which like most of the hotels in New Orleans has been running at severely depleted occupancy levels since spring because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Chicago-based Hostmark Hospitality Group, had been the management company for the Higgins since the project was first conceived in 2017 as an extension of the museum, with WWII tributes like the Rosie the Riveter-themed rooftop bar, wartime memorabilia adorning much of its interior, as well as offering educational crossover activities.

Though beset by several construction delays, which resulted in ongoing lawsuits against some of the engineers who’d worked on the project, the art deco-styled hotel

Singapore’s economy contracted 7% in 3rd quarter of 2020

Singapore’s GDP contracted 7 per cent on a year-on-year basis in the third quarter of 2020,  an improvement from the 13.3 per cent contraction in the second quarter.

The improved performance of the Singapore economy came on the back of the phased re-opening of the economy following the Circuit Breaker implemented between April 7 and June 1. 

In a press statement on Wednesday, October 14, Ministry of Trade and Industry (MTI) said the manufacturing sector grew by two per cent on a year-on-year basis in the third quarter, a reversal from the 0.8 per cent contraction in the previous quarter.

Apple ship-from-store strategy ends total reliance on centralized distribution

Apple Inc.’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) unprecedented move to ship upcoming iPhone 12 orders from its stores may be a one-shot deal prompted by the unusual economic conditions of 2020. Or it may be the start of a sustainable trend for a company whose centralized distribution strategy is as old as Apple itself.

In any case, Apple’s immense influence could compel other businesses that may be on the ship-from-store pool deck to dive in. John Richardson,vice president of supply chain analytics for Transportation Insight LLC., a transport consultancy in Hickory, North Carolina, said whenever Apple does anything new and different to provide customers with value-added options, millions of firms stand up and take notice. Somewhat overshadowed by its marketing and design brilliance is the fact that Apple is considered by many professionals to have one of the best-performing supply chains in the world.

Citing people familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported late Friday
