Key Takeaways

  1. We’ve been trying to warn US Growth Bears about one very basic concept. And that is US GDP #Accelerating, throughout 2017. We’ve had 4 straight quarters of that.
  2. Despite 2 monstrous hurricanes hitting us hard, we should have a 5th consecutive quarter of year-over-year #acceleration in the US GDP data series. As of Friday’s real-time data, the Q3 #acceleration won’t be as big as it could have been, however.
  3. Here’s our updated US GDP view for Q317: Q3 GDP ticks down to +2.42% year-over-year growth (vs. +2.2% in Q217); Q3 GDP ticks down to +3.63% on a q/q SAAR basis (vs. +3.0% in Q217).
