Trump's Call for Federal Reserve Stimulus Undermined by Strength of Own Economy

President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized his own Federal Reserve chair, Jerome Powell, for keeping U.S. interest rates too high, despite a projected slowing in the economy. Yet a Labor Department report Friday showed that U.S. jobs growth continued at a strong pace in June, prompting some economists to assert that drastic monetary stimulus isn't warranted.

Bank Stocks Rise as Strong Jobs Report Curbs Hopes for Steep Rate Cut By Fed

A Labor Department report Friday showed the U.S. economy adding jobs at a faster-than-expected pace in June -- signaling to traders that the Federal Reserve might not need to cut interest rates sharply at a meeting later this month. Higher-than-expected interest rates could help banks' lending margins.

Adding to Caterpillar

We believe this stock represents great value for an American industrial that could see upside from either eased trade tensions or a pickup in the economy.
