Goldman Cuts NFP Forecast To 100,000 - Sheer Panic On Wall Street As The Heroin Addicts Demand QE3 NOW

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Not even 5 mintues ago we predicted that Goldman would lower its 150,000 NFP forecast to 125,000. Well, even we were off. Hatzius just cut his Friday NFP forecast to 100,000.  Just like last August when the horrendous NFP number set off QE2, so Wall Street is in full panic mode, as it tries to find a way to crush stocks enough to give Bernanke validation for QE3, but without getting retail to throw in the towel for the last time. Still to come: the firm trimming H2 GDP to under 3%. We give it a few days. Elsewhere, Joe Lavorgna is dry heaving in a corner somewhere, trying to find a way not to look like a complete idiot for having to cut his NFP forecast two days in a row, from 300,000 to under 150,000.

Another Weak Report; Lowering Payroll Forecast to 100k

BOTTOM LINE: ISM report weakens substantially, confirming significant slowing in growth in manufacturing sector. We are lowering our forecast for May nonfarm payroll employment to +100,000 from +150,000 previously.

MAIN POINTS:

1. The ISM manufacturing index weakened sharply in May, falling to 53.5 from 60.4 in April. The new orders and production components both fell by roughly 10 points-very large declines by historical standards. The employment index held up better, but also fell to 58.2 from 62.7. We continue to believe that supply chain disruptions in the auto sector resulting from the events in Japan are one factor behind the abrupt weakening in the manufacturing surveys. However, it cannot explain all of the weakness in the recent data, including that seen in measures of employment growth.

2. We are lowering our forecast for May nonfarm payroll employment to +100,000 from +150,000 previously. While the ADP report has a mixed tracked record in forecasting payroll growth, our research indicates it should receive some weight. Moreover, the weakness in the ADP report follows a streak of weaker-than-expected news on both the labor market and activity as whole. We are holding our forecast for the unemployment rate at 8.9% and for average hourly earnings growth at 0.2% mom.

I think you are giving Lavorgnia too much credit.  I'm sure he doesn't believe he was 'wrong' just that other people are at fault for not creating data that lives up to his expectations.  He will be on CNBS later this week chortling about how great it would be if we bull dozed some homes.

LaVorgna cutting from 300,000 to 150,000 -- that's some turbulent rethinking of "The Thesis." Perhaps this precipitous decline in bullish altitude is stirring a bit of motion discomfort.

I saw CNBC once report that "Amazon's loss worsened less than expected"

In other words,

 - Book value was negative

 - 1st derivative (earnings) was negative

 - 2nd derivative was negative (earnings worsening)

 - Second derivative beat the street's sandbagged estimate thereof.

 - 3rd derivative was also negative since YOY loss worsening worsened.

Agree.  But QE is not to stimulate job growth. It is sold as such, but is not its function.  The FED was mitigating big bank risk with QE.  If there is addtional risk identified by the banks, expect more QE.  If everthing is packaged up nice and tidy, no more QE.

I think most of these BS forecasts are to serve a purpose, to make the market go up and down, so than their banks and traders can rip off those retail traders or dumb funds.  Otherwise, how can they be so stupid that come up with those forecasts so far off?  Maybe they are sitting in front of a dumb terminal everyday, and forget what they eat and drink need someone else to grow and brew (total detachment from reality).  If you have someone in your office, making those kinds of numbers so far off, would you fire his dumbass after a couple times?  How can these people still come up numbers after that many failures, if their only existence is not to move the market?

If you have not already done so, read The Long Emergency.

Kunstler, a long-time critic of suburban design, advises communities to change to accommodate walking and bicycling as the primary modes of transport. Populations should be moved out of big cities into smaller communities that have nearby arable land with adequate water and favourable climate for agriculture. People should begin learning to grow food.

have to agree with Kunstlers points, although gas prices have moderated, probably due to weaker demand, which may have been the clue that the NFP was going to miss. in CA the first retrenchment was from the exurbs, gated communities built even farther beyond the aging burbs (built mostly in the 60s and 70s). as the economy moves to mostly service the jobs are where the people are, and mostly that is new inner city redevelopment.

for some reason planners keep stacking folks up in these apartment buildings where they have no chance to create any autonomy for themselves. the way they are building it we are heading for Soylent 3, (the social outcome of QE3).hopefully the Governor of CA will be able to stop redevelopment, (recall the case in Conn led to SCOTUS approving Emminent Domain laws), and stop the warehousing of people in urban centers, (which does solve the transportation problem, but little else)

so, when coupled with all this other crappy economic data if NFP takes a dump and 1st time claims continue to beat expectations,  that assures us of 2 things.  all resistance to a debt ceiling increase will be swept away in a 2008 style doomsday campaign headed up by Timmy, and QE3 will be a lock right? but won't this also assure us that the economy will never again function on it's own, that it's not even on life support anymore but is now in hospice being fed pain meds to ease it's passing? I'm seriously wondering if this is one of those moments that history will look back upon and point to as the defining moment in a chain of events that destroyed yet another great society from the inside. we see the bread and circus all around, wasn't the UBL raid to Obama as the fiddle was to Nero...it's amazing to watch Washington get louder and louder, the sound and the fury signifying nothing while the propaganda corps MSM are desperately trying to detach the population from reality.

So this is bad news? It will be spun as not as bad as it could have been and the market will go up. It's just like we would have lost even more jobs without the many government stimuli.

I bet the NFP doesn't even come in at +50k

All of these jobs that were previously being reported were temporary government jobs that are going away faster and faster...The jobs Obama claims to have created were all 9 month positions that are now gone, and companies are still not hiring....I think Bernanke thought his little QE game would get companies hiring within 9 months, and he was wrong yet again.
