Rates Stay Higher After Jobs Report and Shutdown Bill

Mortgage rates moved modestly higher today, although some lenders were right in line with yesterday’s levels (especially those who raised rates in response to market weakness yesterday afternoon).  Either way, today’s rates are pretty darn close to yesterday’s and very much inside the recent range.

The Labor Department announced that 228k new jobs were created in November, stronger than the median forecast of 200k.  These so-called “nonfarm payrolls” add up to the most widely followed metric on the health of the labor market in the US.  On most other occasions, the report would create a more meaningful response in rates (which tend to rise when jobs growth is strong).  In the current case, market participants are more interested to see how various legislative efforts develop–especially the tax bill.  

Part of yesterday’s bond market weakness had to do with bipartisan efforts to avert a government shutdown.  Another temporary bill was signed by Trump today which funds the government for another 2 weeks.  Rates responded by leveling-off just above yesterday’s highs.  

The movement wasn’t enough to change actual interest rate quotes on mortgages (i.e. “NOTE rates”).  Instead, changes would be seen in the form of higher closing costs for the same rates quoted yesterday.

Loan Originator Perspective

Bonds’ brief rally ended yesterday, and we returned to recent ranges today.  It appears we’re back to treading water, which means it’s time to play defense.  I’m locking all applications within 30 days of closing, and examining those within 45 to see if the potential benefits of floating merits clients’ risk tolerance.  -Ted Rood, Senior Originator

I am not a fan of locking on Fridays, so i personally favor floating over the weekend.   Most of my clients chose to lock earlier this week which in hindsight appears to have been wise, but pricing is not much worse today.  As always, if you are happy with the quote, lock and move on.  Not sure you will gain much by floating. –Victor Burek, Churchill Mortgage

Today’s Most Prevalent Rates

  • 30YR FIXED – 4.0%
  • FHA/VA – 3.75% 
  • 15 YEAR FIXED – 3.375%
  • 5 YEAR ARMS –  2.75 – 3.25% depending on the lender


Ongoing Lock/Float Considerations

  • 2017 had proven to be a relatively good year for mortgage rates despite widespread expectations for a stronger push higher after the presidential election in late 2016. 
  • While rates remain low in absolute terms, they’ve moved higher in a more threatening way heading into the 4th quarter, relative to the stability and improvement seen earlier in 2017
  • The default stance for now is that this trend toward higher rates has the potential to continue.  It will take more than a few great days here and there for that outlook to change.
  • For weeks, this bullet point had warned about recent stability inviting a bigger dose of volatility.  That volatility is now here.  As such, locking is generally the better choice until the volatility is clearly dying down.
  • Rates discussed refer to the most frequently-quoted, conforming, conventional 30yr fixed rate for top tier borrowers among average to well-priced lenders.  The rates generally assume little-to-no origination or discount except as noted when applicable.  Rates appearing on this page are “effective rates” that take day-to-day changes in upfront costs into consideration.

Cloud Enterprise Content Management Market – Expected to Reach $34.4 Billion by 2022

DUBLIN, Dec. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ —

The “Cloud Enterprise Content Management Market by Solution (Document Management, Case Management, Workflow Management, Record Management, and E-Discovery), Service, Deployment Model, Organization Size, Vertical, and Region – Global Forecast to 2022” report has been added to Research and Markets’ offering.

The cloud Enterprise Content Management (ECM) market size is expected to grow from USD 9.77 Billion in 2017 to USD 34.42 Billion by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 28.6%. The major drivers of this cloud ECM market include the growth in the digital content across enterprises, easier access from remote end-points, need for protection of enterprise data against the disaster, and need for regulatory compliances.

The cloud ECM market report has been broadly classified on the basis of solutions into document management, content management, case management, workflow management, record management, digital asset management, eDiscovery, and others; on the basis of services into professional services, and managed services; on the basis of deployment models into public, private, and hybrid; on the basis of organization sizes into Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and large enterprises; on the basis of verticals into BFSI, education, energy and power, government and public sector, healthcare and life sciences, manufacturing, media and entertainment, retail and consumer goods, telecommunications and ITES, and others; and on the basis of regions into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East and Africa (MEA), and Latin America.

The document management solution is projected to hold the largest market size and is expected to continue its dominance during the forecast period. There has been a tremendous increase in the volume of documents generated in an enterprise on a daily basis; thus, this increases the need to manage and store the generated data. Moreover, the need to maintain metadata files is increasing due to tremendous rise in organizational content, generated on a daily basis. Metadata files can be instrumental in defining the control and access mechanism of the documents.

The public deployment model is projected to hold the largest market share in 2017 and is expected to grow during the forecast period. The main reason for the high adoption of public cloud is its ease to access and fast deployment. The public cloud deployment model offers various benefits to the enterprises, such as scalability, reliability, flexibility, and remote location access. The public cloud deployment model is more preferred by the enterprises that have less regulatory hurdles and are willing to outsource their storage facilities either fully or partially. The major concern with public cloud is its data security due to which, many enterprises are shifting to private and hybrid cloud storage solutions.

The SMEs segment is moving toward the adoption of cloud ECM and growing rapidly at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Cloud ECM has become a crucial part of the business processes in SMEs, due to the ease of use and the flexibility it offers and is expected to grow in the coming years.

Consumer advocates file brief opposing CFPB’s Mulvaney

WASHINGTON — A group of ten consumer advocacy groups has filed an amicus brief on behalf of former Consumer Financial Protection Bureau Deputy Director Leandra English in her suit to claim interim control of the agency.

The brief, filed Friday, argues that the court should take into consideration not only the legal underpinnings of English’s claim to the directorship of the CFPB, but also the effect on consumer protection that would result from leaving acting director and White House Ofice of Management and Budget director Mick Mulvaney in charge.

“The Court … should examine how Plaintiff English or Defendant Mulvaney would lead the CFPB,” said a group of consumer advocates in thier brief supporting Leandra English’ suit against acting CFPB director Mick Mulvaney.

Bloomberg News

“Inattention by federal regulatory agencies, along with limitations on their authority, contributed significantly to the 2008 financial crisis,” said the brief, which was signed by Americans for Financial Reform, Public Citizen, U.S. Public Interest Research Group and the Center for Responsible Lending, among others. “Although plaintiff’s claim regards who can serve as acting director until the next Senate-confirmed director is seated, the Court … should also examine how Plaintiff English or Defendant Mulvaney would lead the CFPB.”

The brief went on to argue that Mulvaney’s approach to consumer protection is “an inherent conflict of interest with the agency’s statutory mission” and that his leadership, even temporarily, would “slow or halt execution of the CFPB’s core functions” and render the agency little more than a puppet of the White House.

The brief claims that, in creating the CFPB, the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act consolidated various consumer protection authorities that had been dispersed throughout the U.S. financial regulatory system under one roof. That action was pursued because of the stark failure of any of the agencies individually or together to foresee and stop the abuses that led to the financial crisis. Dodd-Frank also took pains to ensure that the agency was independent, to the extent practicable, of political influence.

“The Dodd-Frank Act expressly designated the agency as independent, gave the CFPB its own source of funding from the Federal Reserve, allowed the CFPB to make financial operating plans without OMB approval, and placed the agency under a single director appointed by the President and confirmed by the Senate for a five-year term, removable by the President only for ‘inefficiency, neglect of duty, or malfeasance in office,’” the brief said.

That independence of the agency is threatened by having Mulvaney sit atop the agency, the brief said, and the court should consider his stated goals as well as the concrete actions he has taken in his brief tenure in that role — including freezing hiring and assigning political operatives to shadow career staff — in its decision over whether his continued service is in the public interest.

“The public interest lies strongly with Plaintiff’s requested injunction because, absent the injunction, Defendants’ actions risk slowing the agency to a halt,” the brief said. “With these actions, Defendant Mulvaney is not leading the CFPB to pursue its statutory mission of implementing and enforcing consumer protection law. His goal at the CFPB is to ‘limit as much as we can what the CFPB does to sort of interfere with capitalism and with the financial services market.’”

English, who had served as former CFPB Director Richard Cordray’s chief of staff before being tapped as interim director by him on his last day before resigning, filed suit against Mulvaney after the White House claimed authority to name the bureau’s interim director under the 1998 Vacancies Reform Act. A D.C. District Court judge sided with Mulvaney, though English is still pursuing her complaint in court. The court is scheduled to hear arguments in the case on Dec. 22.

SEC Modifies Approach to Form N-PORT Filing Requirements

Washington D.C., Dec. 8, 2017 —

In recognition of the importance of sound data security practices and protocols for sensitive, non-public information, the Securities and Exchange Commission today modified its approach to the pending requirement for registered investment companies to file Form N‑PORT electronically while the agency continues its previously announced review and uplift of its EDGAR and other systems.

For the first nine months after the Form N-PORT compliance date of June 1, 2018, larger fund groups will maintain the Form N-PORT information in their records and make it available to the Commission upon request in lieu of filing the form on EDGAR. Smaller fund groups will continue to benefit from a filing start date that is one year after larger fund groups begin filing the form.

In May 2017, Chairman Jay Clayton initiated an assessment of the Commission’s cybersecurity risk profile and its approach to cybersecurity. The Chairman subsequently directed the staff to take a number of steps designed to assess and strengthen the Commission’s cybersecurity risk profile. In connection with these ongoing efforts, the agency commenced a focused review and uplift of EDGAR and other systems. Form N-PORT uses the EDGAR system.

“Today’s Commission action is a prudent step as we continue our work to uplift EDGAR and other systems and assess our data needs, including how and when we collect market-sensitive data,” said Chairman Clayton. “An important component of today’s release is the requirement that larger fund groups maintain — and Commission staff have access to — the information required on Form N-PORT.”

The Commission adopted Form N‑PORT to require registered investment companies to report enhanced information about their monthly portfolio holdings in a structured data format. Filing of Form N-PORT through the EDGAR system will begin in April 2019 for larger fund groups and in April 2020 for smaller fund groups. To ensure that investors do not lose access to important information, the Commission is requiring funds to continue filing public reports on existing Form N‑Q until they begin filing reports on Form N-PORT using EDGAR.  

Daniel Michael Named Chief of Enforcement Division’s Complex Financial Instruments Unit

Washington D.C., Dec. 7, 2017 —

The Securities and Exchange Commission today announced that Daniel Michael has been named chief of the Enforcement Division’s Complex Financial Instruments Unit.

In his new role, Mr. Michael will lead a specialized unit of attorneys and industry experts who are located in offices across the country and investigate potential misconduct related to complex financial products and practices involving sophisticated market participants.

Mr. Michael joined the SEC in 2010, and has served as an assistant director based in the New York Regional Office since 2014.  He has played a key role in a number of significant enforcement actions, including charges against Merrill Lynch for violating the SEC’s Customer Protection Rule. 

“Dan is a perfect complement to the highly experienced CFI team, and as a strong leader, he will bring tremendous judgment and a deep appreciation for the ways in which complex products can be used to take advantage of investors,” said Stephanie Avakian, Co-Director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division.

“Opaque and complex markets such as those policed by CFI provide many opportunities for new types of misconduct that harm retail investors, and Dan is committed to combating it in whatever form it takes,” said Steven Peikin, Co-Director of the SEC’s Enforcement Division.

“I am honored to have the opportunity to work alongside the talented and dedicated members of the Complex Financial Instruments Unit,” said Mr. Michael.  “The unit has successfully identified and pursued fraud in some of the most challenging areas of the markets, and I look forward to building on the important work  the CFI team has done to protect investors from wrongdoing involving complex products and trading schemes.”

Among other significant enforcement actions under Mr. Michael’s purview have been the SEC’s charges against:

  • JPMorgan Chase & Co., for misstating financial results and lacking effective internal controls to detect and prevent its traders from fraudulently overvaluing investments to conceal hundreds of millions of dollars in trading losses
     
  • Bank of America Corporation, for violating internal controls and recordkeeping provisions of the federal securities laws after it assumed a large portfolio of structured notes and other financial instruments as part of its acquisition of Merrill Lynch
     
  • Two Wall Street traders involved in a fraudulent “parking” scheme in which one temporarily placed securities in the other’s trading book to avoid penalties that would affect his year-end bonus

Before joining the SEC, Mr. Michael worked in private practice in New York City and was a law clerk to U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.  He received his J.D. cum laude from Harvard Law School, and his B.A. magna cum laude from New York University.

Broker Charged With Defrauding Investors

Washington D.C., Dec. 7, 2017 —

The Securities and Exchange Commission charged a registered representative in Pennsylvania with operating a long-running offering and investment advisory fraud.

The SEC’s complaint, filed in federal court in Philadelphia, alleges that Paul W. Smith raised approximately $2.35 million from approximately 30 investors – many of whom were his brokerage customers – by representing that he would invest their money in publicly traded securities through The Haverford Group, an outside partnership that Smith formed and did not disclose to his broker-dealer employers.  However, Smith allegedly made very few securities investments and instead largely used investors’ money to repay other investors and for his own personal use.

“As alleged in our complaint, Smith told investors that Haverford provided steady and dependable returns,” said Kelly L. Gibson, Associate Director of the SEC’s Philadelphia Regional Office.  “Those returns were a fiction.  Smith was misappropriating investors’ money and lying to cover his tracks.  This matter highlights the need for retail investors – and retirees and elderly individuals in particular – to remain skeptical of investments that sound too good to be true.”

Subject to court approval, Smith has agreed to settle the SEC’s action against him by consenting to an injunction against violations of Section 17(a) of the Securities Act of 1933, Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5, and Sections 206(1), 206(2), and 206(4) of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and Rule 206(4)-8.  Smith has agreed to pay disgorgement and prejudgment interest of $362,858.45, which would be deemed satisfied upon the entry of an order in a parallel criminal proceeding requiring Smith to pay a greater amount in restitution.  Smith has agreed to plead guilty in the parallel criminal action brought by the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.

The SEC’s investigation was conducted by Norman P. Ostrove and Scott A. Thompson in the Philadelphia office with assistance from Jennifer C. Barry, and supervised by Ms. Gibson.  The examination that led to the investigation was conducted by Eric A. Elefante, Edward T. Flaherty, Ian M. Budzilowicz, Colleen D. Sigle, and Brian Carroll.  The SEC appreciates the assistance of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
