James Hardie raises 2021 profit forecast on high demand for renovation

Adds details on markets, 2021 forecast

Oct 14 (Reuters)Australian building materials supplier James Hardie Industries JHX.AX on Wednesday raised its full-year profit forecast and said it expected to post record second-quarter results, boosted by solid demand for its services across markets.

Since the COVID-19 pandemic related shutdowns hammered sales earlier in the year, there has been a recovery in Asia Pacific and European markets.

James Hardie, the world’s biggest fibre cement maker, said the all-time high quarterly sales were “made possible by having all three operating regions deliver growth above market.”

In August, it said sales in North America, one of its biggest markets, were buyoed by homeowners turning to renovation amid the pandemic.

The company increased its fiscal 2021 forecast for underlying net operating profit after tax (NOPAT) to between $380 million and $420 million, from an earlier projection of $330 million and $390 million.

Key takeaways from ATA’s Freight Transportation Forecast

The American Trucking Associations (ATA) has released its latest U.S. Freight Transportation Forecast, which predicts freight volumes will grow 36% over the next 11 years. The most recent report, which is a partnership between ATA and IHS Markit, begins with a 2019 baseline and then projects through 2031 the amount of tonnage to be hauled, the revenue collected from those volumes by mode, as well as retail truck sales over that period, and the number of Class 8 vehicles in operation.

“Like the last several editions, we have included historical data for all modes of freight transportation back to 1990,” explained ATA Chief Economist Bob Costello in the report’s opening message. “The historical data is especially useful for gauging growth in each transportation mode, the magnitude of contraction during the recessions, as well as understanding modal share shifts over time.”

According to IHS Markit, total truck tonnage, including for-hire and

Mortgage rate forecast Q4: Will the low rates continue? | Money

However, Ken H. Johnson, a housing economist at Florida Atlantic University, is less optimistic about a quick economic recovery. “Rates will remain low for at least another year,” he says. “I just do not see full or near-full economic recovery until COVID-19 no longer or minimally impacts the economy.”

— Economic recovery could boost rates

Greg McBride, CFA, Bankrate’s chief financial analyst, sees rates holding steady in the coming year. “Mortgage rates will remain at historically low levels and in no way be an impediment to well-qualified borrowers, but they won’t be quite as low as what was seen in the summer of 2020,” he says. “A refinance fee taking effect in Q4 2020 and further economic improvement will push rates a bit higher.”

Audrey Boissonou of Guarantee Mortgage in Walnut Creek, California, says the direction of the economy will prove crucial. “I’m locking people in in the high 2s
