313,000 new jobs added in February – Wage growth moderates – The Department of Labor Statistics reported that U.S. employers added 313,000 new jobs in February. It was the economy’s largest monthly gain in jobs since July 2016. This crushed analysts’ expectations of 203,000 new jobs. The unemployment rate remained unchanged at 4.1% for the fifth straight month. Wage growth moderated and rose by just 2.6% from last February. Wages, which have been pretty stagnant for several years, rose by an unexpected 2.9% year-over-year in January. Experts have been puzzled as to why wages are not growing at a faster pace. Higher wage growth would be expected in an economy that has reached what is considered full employment. January’s 2.9% led investors to believe that wages were finally on the rise at more healthy levels, which The Fed targets at around 3%. Rising wages gives people more money to spend which leads to more inflation. Higher inflation drives interest rates up. Inflation has also been below The Fed’s target rate. After the January wage growth of 2.9% was announced, interest rates rose as investors felt inflation was about to pick up to more normal levels. Wages were the most anticipated part of the jobs report this month, as investors wanted to see if January’s wage growth was an outlier, or the start of a trend. Today‘s report suggests that January’s 2.9% may have just been an outlier, not a trend. Everybody will now have to wait until March’s jobs numbers, which will be released the first Friday of April to see if wages are finally rising at more normal levels.
Stock markets end week up 3.5% – Stocks rose this week making up the losses suffered last week after President Trump announced that he was going to place tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to help American metal manufacturers. Thursday, President Trump excluded Canada and Mexico from steel and aluminum tariffs. This was a deviation from last week’s pledge of tariffs on all steel and metal imports. With almost all companies reported, 75% of companies reported that their fourth quarter profits beat expectations. 313,000 new non-farm jobs were added to the economy in February. That exceed expectations by over 100,000! Wage gains, which scared the markets in January, moderated in February reducing the risk of inflation. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed the week at 25,335.74, up from last week’s close of 24,538.06. It is up 2.5% year-to-date. The S&P 500 closed the week at 2,786.57, up from 2,692.25 last week. It’s up 4.2% year-to-date. The NASDAQ closed at 7,569.81, up from 7,257.87 last week. It is up 9.5% year-to-date.
Treasury Bond Yields – The 10-year treasury bond closed the week yielding 2.90%, up slightly from 2.86% last week. The 30-year treasury bond yield ended the week at 3.16%, up slightly from 3.14% last week. We watch bond rates because mortgage rates follow bond rates.
Mortgage Rates slightly higher this week – The March 8, 2018 Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Survey reported that the 30-year fixed mortgage rate average was 4.46%, up slightly from last week’s 4.43%. The 15-year fixed was 3.94%, up from 3.90% last week. The 5-year ARM was 3.63%, down from 3.62% last week.
Movies. Friends. Hot tubs. If that sounds like an intriguing trio then you might fancy something called Hot Tub Cinema Club, an international movie screening series set to debut in Los Angeles later this year.
Hot Tub Cinema Club has been putting on events in Europe and Australia over the past two years. The premise is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: Small groups gather in inflatable hot tubs to hang out on warm days/evenings and watch cult classic films, with a bit of drink and grub thrown in for good measure.
According to a release, HTCC’s L.A. debut will feature six screenings which will be limited to 20 tubs per screening with up to five people per tub. That’s 100 people per engagement. We Like L.A. spoke with a rep from Hot Tub Cinema Club via email who gave some additional details. Here are few key need-to-knows:
Hot Tub Cinema Club is targeting late September for its Los Angeles debut, but no official date has been confirmed as yet. The location will be somewhere in Downtown Los Angeles, but again, no venue has been confirmed. For now, interested guests can sign up to stay apprised of pre-release tickets at hottubcinemaclub.com.

Swans have arrived at Echo Park Lake just in time for spring. Well, sort of. The pedal boat services at the lake are under new management, and part of the change includes an upgraded fleet of swan-shaped pedal boats available for rental. Wheel Fun Rentals has taken over the pedal boat rental space previously run by Chaffin & Reeves (doing business as Echo Park Lake Pedal Boats Canoe & Gondola). The first day of new service was this past Saturday, and it included the debut of the aforementioned swans.
According to The Eastsider the previous operators were outbid by Wheel Fun for the rights to manage the rentals in a decision approved by the Department of Recreation and Parks this past September. Chaffin & Reeves had provided pedal boat rental services at the lake since the extensive renovation of the area that took place in 2013.
We Like L.A. spoke to assistant manager Tom Oddo, who was has worked at the pedal boat rental space for the past 10 months, and was kept on during the transition of service providers. Oddo said the newer boats represent a significant upgrade, both in terms of size and the notable addition of canopies to shade pedal-boat riders on the open water. A small swan boat can accommodate two adults and two children under 10 years old. A large swan boat can hold up to five people. Presently about half the fleet has been swapped out for the new swan models, but the plan is to convert all of the boats in the near future.
Rentals cost $11 per hour for adults and $6 per hour for children (ages 2-17). This is a $1 increase for both adults and children compared to the old rates. Weekdays are your best bet if you want to guarantee rental availability, as weekends tend to sell out quickly. Once summer begins Oddo told We Like L.A. he expects to see high demand every day of the week.
Boat rentals are available year-round, seven days a week from 9 a.m. to sunset. The boathouse is located on the eastern side of Echo Park Lake, adjacent to Beacon at 751 Echo Park Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90026.

Stock markets drop sharply in the last week of February and first two days of March – Stock markets dropped in four out of five sessions in volatile trading this week. The week began with Federal Reserve Chairman, Jerome Powell’s testimony to Congress. In his first congressional update he stated that he would raise short-term interest rates at a faster pace than his predecessor. He testified that the economy was strong and inflation was tame, but stated that historical low interest rates were not needed to stimulate an already robust economy. Investors sold stocks in fears that higher interest rates will increase borrowing costs and cut into corporate profits. Later in the week, President Trump announced that he planned to place tariffs on steel and aluminum imports in an effort to help U.S. metal companies. That sparked another sell off as many U.S. companies purchase imported steel and aluminum. Their costs will be increased, which will increase the cost of their products, which include: cars, trucks, soda cans, building materials, etc. Another fear is that although the U.S. has a huge trade deficit, we still are among the biggest exporters of goods in the world. It is feared that other countries may retaliate and place tariffs on U.S. goods. That would hurt many industries. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed the week at 24,538.06, down sharply from last week’s close of 25,309.99. It is down 0.7% year-to-date. The S&P 500 closed the week at 2,691.25, down from 2,747.30 last week. It’s up 0.7% year-to-date. The NASDAQ closed at 7,257.87, down from 7,337.39 last week. It is up 4.7% year-to-date.
Treasury Bond Yields – The 10-year treasury bond closed the week yielding 2.86%, down slightly from 2.88% last week. The 30-year treasury bond yield ended the week at 3.14%, down slightly from 3.16% last week. We watch bond rates because mortgage rates follow bond rates.
Mortgage Rates slightly higher this week – The March 1, 2018 Freddie Mac Primary Mortgage Survey reported that the 30-year fixed mortgage rate average was 4.43%, up slightly from last week’s 4.40%. The 15-year fixed was 3.90%, up from 3.85% last week. The 5-year ARM was 3.62%, down from 3.65% last week.
U.S. Pending Home Sales Index drops 4.7% – The National Association of Realtors announced that it’s pending home sale index, which is based on the number of contracts signed in January for existing home purchases, dropped 4.7% from December. It was the lowest number of pending sales since October 2014. Year-over-year existing home sales were 3.8% lower than last January. Extremely low housing inventory was blamed on the drop in sales. The number of active listings were down 9.5% in January from the number of listings in January 2017. The number of existing homes listed for sale in the U.S. was the lowest ever recorded in January.
Southern California median price increased 11.4% in January –CoreLogic/DataQuick announced that the median price paid for a home in the six county region increased 11.4% in January from one year ago. The median price was $507,000 in January. It was the highest year-over-year increase in the median price in 44 months.
The February jobs report will be released next Friday. Wage gains will be the most pertinent part of the report. Interest rates rose after January’s report showed that average hourly wages rose at the fastest rate since 2010 in January. That caused investors to fear higher inflation was on the way. The February report will show if January’s wage increase was an outlier, or the start of a trend after years of stagnant wages.
