Fri, 28 Oct 2016 05:46:00 -0400
The parent group of British Airways on Friday lowered its annual earnings forecast for a second time since Britain voted for Brexit, blaming the downgrade mainly on a plunging pound.

Consumers, exports may buoy U.S. third-quarter GDP growth
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 05:43:16 -0400
By Lucia Mutikani WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. economic growth likely accelerated in the third quarter as consumers maintained a strong pace of spending and exports surged, potentially keeping the Federal Reserve on track to raise interest rates in December. In addition to support from consumer spending and exports, the economy is also expected to have received a boost from a rebound in mining activity and inventory investment. "As long as you have consumer spending, some stabilization of capital spending, trade kicking in and inventories switching from being a significant drag, that balanced composition will make us confident that things are moving in the right direction," said Anthony Karydakis, chief economic strategist at Miller Tabak in New York.
