Dead Mall Stalking: One Hedge Fund Manager’s Tour Across Middle-America – Part 2

Via AdventuresInCapitalism.com, Continued from Part 1... Malls are bearing the brunt of changes in retail, but they’re only the canary in the coal mine. Let’s start with a simple premise; commercial real estate (CRE) will change more in the next decade than it has in the past hundred years. Anyone who thinks they can fully foresee how it will evolve is lying to you. The only certainty is that highly leveraged real estate investors and lenders will be obliterated as current models evolve faster than anticipated. In the past, retail was retail, warehouse was warehouse and office was office—the same for all other CRE classes. There was some cross-over, but the main commercial real estate components stayed segmented for the most part. Now, with big box stores, the lowest hanging fruit for online shopping to knock off, going to dodo-land, there will be hundreds of millions of feet of well-located space suddenly becoming available. People act as if there are enough Ulta Beauty and Dick’s Sporting Goods to go around. However, you cannot fill all of this space with the few big box retail concepts still expanding—especially as many stalwarts are themselves shrinking. As a result, a huge game of musical chairs is about to take place. Why pay $20/ft for mid-rise office space, if you can now move into an abandoned Sports Authority for $5/ft. Sure, it doesn’t come with windows, but employees like open plan space and there’s plenty of parking. Besides, with the rental savings, you can offer your staff an in-house fitness facility and cafeteria for free. Does your mega-church need a larger space? There’s probably a former Sears or Kmart that perfectly accommodates you at $3/ft. Have an assisted living facility with an expiring lease? Why not move it to an abandoned JC Penney—the geriatrics will feel right at home, as they’re the only ones still shopping there.   Go onto any real estate website and you will find out that huge plan space is nearly free. No one knows what the hell to do with it and the waves of bankruptcy in big box are just starting. As online evolves, these waves will engulf other segments of retail as well. Type Macy’s into Loopnet.com and look at how many millions of feet of old Macy’s are available for under $10/ft to purchase. Retail’s problems are about to become everyone’s problems in CRE. When the old Macy’s rents for $2/ft, what happens to everyone else’s rents? EXACTLY!!! What happens if a CRE owner is leveraged at 60% (currently considered conservative) and leasing at $15/ft when the old HHGregg across the street is offered for rent at $3/ft? An office owner can lower his rents a few dollars, but at the new price deck, he cannot cover his interest cost, much less his other operating expenses. What happens to a suddenly emptying mid-rise office building? It has higher operating expenses than the box store due to full-time security and cleaning—maybe it’s a zero—in that future market rents no longer cover the operating expenses of the asset, much less offer a return on investment. I know, crazy—that’s how musical chairs works when demand contracts and the supply stays the same. What happens to the guys who lent against these assets? Kaplooey!!! America currently has more feet of retail space per capita than any other country. For that matter, America has more feet of office and other CRE types per capita as well. A decade of low interest rates has made this problem substantially worse. Think of the two malls that I spoke about in the last piece—they weren’t done in by the internet, they were done in by a tripling of retail space in a cities that are barely growing. These cities simply ran out of shoppers for all of this space. Now the mall is empty—heck the strip retail is only partly filled in. The next step is that rents will drop—dramatically. The owners of each asset, the mall and the strip center will go bust. Neither has a cap structure that is designed for dramatically lower rents. Neither has an org structure designed for carving up this space for the sorts of eclectic tenants that will eventually absorb it over the next few decades. CRE has had it so good for the past 35 years, that most owners have never seen a down cycle. Sure, Dallas had too much supply in the early ‘90’s. Silicon Valley over-expanded in the early ‘00’s. It took a few years for it to be absorbed. Anyone who had capital during the bust made a fortune. This time may really be different. There’s too much supply. Short of blowing it up, it will be with us for years into the future. Without dramatic economic or population growth, some of it may NEVER be absorbed. As an investor, this is all interesting to understand, but you don’t fully comprehend it until you have visited a few dozen of these facilities and seen how owners are trying to cope with the problem. In Miami, space is constricted. In Texas, there’s more CRE than I’ve ever seen. They keep putting it up—even if there isn’t demand currently. For three decades, they’ve always been able to fill it over time. For the first time ever, they can’t seem to fill it—in fact, demand is now declining. It is now obvious; there will be a whole lot of pain for CRE owners and lenders. Of course, someone’s pain can be someone’s gain. To be continued…

США: в июне рост занятости превысил ожидания, но рост заработных плат продолжил замедляться

Число рабочих мест в США в июне выросло более, чем ожидалось, и работодатели увеличили количество рабочих часов, что свидетельствует о силе рынка труда, которая могла бы позволить ФРС пойти на третье увеличение процентной ставки в этом году, несмотря на мягкую инфляцию. Число занятых в несельскохозяйственных отраслях экономики подскочило на 222 000 рабочих мест в прошлом месяце, сообщило в пятницу Министерство труда, опередив ожидания экономистов роста на 179 000 рабочих мест. Данные за апрель и май были пересмотрены, и было создано больше на 47 000 новых рабочих мест, чем сообщалось ранее. В то время как уровень безработицы вырос до 4,4 процента с 16-летнего минимума в 4,3 процента, это было вызвано тем, что больше людей искали работу, что свидетельствует о доверии к рынку труда. Уровень безработицы снизился на четыре десятых процента в этом году и близок к последнему среднему медианному прогнозу на 2017 год. Средняя рабочая неделя увеличилась до 34,5 часов с 34,4 часов в мае. Повышательная тенденция на рынке труда также может побудить центральный банк США объявить о планах по сокращению портфеля казначейских облигаций и ипотечных ценных бумаг в размере 4,2 трлн. долл. США в сентябре. ФРС повысила свою процентную ставку овернайт в июне во второй раз в этом году. Но с ростом инфляции ниже уровня 2-процентного целевого показателя центрального банка в мае экономисты ожидают еще одного повышения ставок только в декабре. Рост занятости в июне превысил среднюю отметку в 186 000 рабочих мест за 2016 год, подтвердив мнение о том, что экономика восстановила скорость во втором квартале после вялого старта в начале года. Но темпы роста занятости, как ожидается, будут замедляться, поскольку рынок труда достигнет полной занятости. Растет неопровержимое доказательство того, что компании пытаются найти квалифицированных рабочих. В результате компании постепенно повышают заработную плату, стремясь привлечь и удержать своих сотрудников. Экономисты ожидают нехватки рабочих мест, который позволит увеличить рост заработной платы, который оставался упрямо вялым, несмотря на ужесточение рынка труда. Средний почасовой доход увеличился на четыре цента или 0,2 процента в июне после роста на 0,1 процента в мае. Это увеличило ежегодный рост заработной платы до 2,5 процента с 2,4 процента в мае. Президент США от Республиканской партии Дональд Трамп, унаследовавший сильный рынок труда от администрации Обамы, пообещал резко повысить экономический рост и еще больше укрепить рынок труда, сократив налоги и сократив регулирование. Но республиканцы боролись с законодательством в области здравоохранения, и есть также опасения, что политические скандалы могут сорвать экономическую повестку дня правления Трампа. Экономика должна создавать 75 000 - 100 000 рабочих мест в месяц, чтобы идти в ногу с ростом населения трудоспособного возраста. Но по-прежнему наблюдается некоторое отставание в рынке труда. Широкий уровень безработицы, включающий людей, которые хотят работать, но отказались от поиска и тех, кто работает неполный рабочий день, потому что не может найти занятость на полный рабочий день, вырос в прошлом месяце до 8,6 процента с 8,4 процента в мае, что было самым низким с ноября 2007 г. Доля участия рабочей силы или доля трудоспособных американцев, которые наняты или, по крайней мере, ищут работу, увеличилась на одну десятую процентного пункта до 62,8 процента. В июне прирост занятости был широк, а в мае количество рабочих мест в промышленности увеличилось на 1000, после того, как в мае было заложено 2000 рабочих мест. Но автомобильный сектор потерял еще 1300 рабочих мест, так как замедление продаж и раздутые запасы заставляют производителей сокращать производство. Сектор сокращал рабочие места в течение трех месяцев подряд. Ford Motor Co объявил о планах сократить 1400 наемных рабочих мест в Северной Америке и Азии за счет добровольного досрочного выхода на пенсию и других финансовых стимулов. Другие компании, такие как General Motors, приступают к закрытию заводов, которые временно оставят рабочих без работы. Строительство добавило еще 16 000 рабочих мест в прошлом месяце. Розничные торговцы наняли 8100 рабочих, что стало неожиданностью для сектора, который сокращал рабочие места в течение четырех месяцев подряд. Операторы универмагов, такие как JC Penney Co Inc, Macy's Inc и Abercrombie & Fitch борются с жесткой конкуренцией со стороны интернет-магазинов, возглавляемых Amazon. В прошлом месяце правительственная занятость восстановилась на 35 000 рабочих мест. Доллар США упал против основных валют после выхода неоднозначной американской статистики по рынку труда. Пара EUR/USD обновила сессионный максимум и в настоящий момент торгуется на уровне $1.1400. Ближайшее сопротивление - $1.1444 (максимум 30 июня). Сильный уровень поддержки - $1.1290 (минимум 28 июня). Информационно-аналитический отдел TeleTradeИсточник: FxTeam

Amazon Didn't Kill JC Penney And Sears Jobs, Bad Leadership Did

"It's A Perfect Storm": List Of Retailers In Danger Of Bankruptcy Hits Record 22

The US retail sector continues to sink at an alarming rate, and according to the latest iteration of Moody's list of retailers who are in danger of filing for bankruptcy, there are now 22 distressed retailers whose troubled financials the rating agency believes could make them potential bankruptcy candidates in the near future, up substantially from just two months ago, and topping the 19 recorded at the peak of the Great Recession. According to Moody's analyst Charles O'Shea, legacy retailers such as Sears, Neiman Marcus and others on the rating agency's retail distress list, face a "perfect storm" and warned that "you're on the Andrea Gail right now, and the water's starting to get very choppy." The worst could be yet to come as the Moody's analyst writes that "the ranks of distressed retailers is set to keep growing over the next 12 to 18 months amid a secular shift in the industry." Moody's list consists of all retailers which have ratings of Caa or lower. That number has grown to 22, or approximately 15%, of the firm's retail and apparel universe. "When you're down there in C-a land, bankruptcy is a real possibility," O'Shea said. "The majority of retailers remain fundamentally healthy," said O'Shea, "But as select groups of retailers continue to deteriorate -- in particular department stores and specialty retailers -- we believe the distressed ranks will keep growing, fueled in part by distinct vulnerabilities within the B2/B3 retail population." Focusing on those retailers with imminent default risk, Moody's adds that of 42 B2/B3 rated issuers (as of April 30, 2017), seven face $1.1 billion of maturities for asset-based loans and revolving credit facilities over the next year- elevating the risk of default for already-stressed and distressed issuers should the strong refinancing pace driving recent high-yield issuance recede. Such a risk is underscored by Moody's US speculative-grade default forecast, which predicts a decline in the overall US speculative-grade default rate to 3% by April 2018 from 4.5% today, even as spec-grade retail and apparel default forecasts trend significantly higher, at 6.7% and 6.8%, respectively. Some of the highliights from the latest Moody's report Competitive challenges are intensifying and the credit erosion among more challenged retail sectors and individual retailers is crystallizing rapidly as more issuers file for bankruptcy and miss payments The competitive challenges weighing on earnings performance for bigger retailers like Amazon.com, Walmart Stores, Best Buy and Target will have potentially devastating ripple effects for smaller, more challenged retailers over the next several quarters Common characteristics of retail and apparel companies with lower credit ratings include stressed liquidity, weak quantitative credit profiles, challenged competitive positions, sponsor ownership and erratic management structure Liquidity is typically the driving force in the assessment of credit risk, and a key determinant in any drop into Caa/Ca territory. “Risk becomes more acute when a company is facing a meaningful debt maturity." Some names that figured previously on Moody's list have already filed for Chapter 11 protoection: among them discount footwear company Payless ShoeSource and Rue21, a teen fashion retailer, both filed for bankruptcy recently, while Gymboree, a specialty seller of children's apparel, missed its June 1 interest payment and is expected to announce its bankruptcy filing shortly. While landing on the distressed list of "super fallen angels" is not a death sentence, recently JC Penney managed to crawl out of it, the probability that a company will end up in bankruptcy rather than get its financial in orders is orders of magnitude greater.  "There are companies that come out of that," said O'Shea, who noted that iconic retailer J.C. Penney "was down there, and is now out," with an improved rating. Doing the math here, with one company "out" and everyone else eventually filing, restructuring lawyers are finally going to be busy after a nearly decade-long hiatus. Below is the full list of deeply distressed retailers: Boardriders SA  - sporting subsidiary of Quiksilver The Bon-Ton Stores - parent of department store chain Fairway Group Holdings - food retailer Tops Holding II - supermarket operator 99 Cents Only Stores - discount retailer TOMS Shoes - footwear company David's Bridal - wedding dresses and formalwear seller Evergreen AcqCo 1 LP - parent of thrift chain Savers Charming Charlie - women's jewelry and accessories Vince LLC - clothing retailer Calceus Acquisition - owner of Cole Haan footwear firm Charlotte Russe - women's clothing Neiman Marcus Group - luxury department store Sears Holdings - owner of Sears and Kmart. Indra Holdings - holding company owner of Totes Isotoner Velocity Pooling Vehicle - does business as MAG, Motorsport Aftermarket Group Chinos Intermediate Holdings - parent of J. Crew Group Everest Holdings - manages Eddie Bauer brand Nine West Holdings - clothing, shoes and accessories Claire's Stores - accessories and jewelry True Religion Apparel - men's and women's clothing Gymboree - children's apparel

США: рост занятости замедлился в мае, уровень безработицы упал до 16-летнего минимума

Рост занятости в США замедлился в мае, а рост занятости в предыдущие два месяца был не таким сильным, как сообщалось ранее, что свидетельствует о том, что рынок труда теряет импульс, несмотря на то, что уровень безработицы упал до 16-летнего минимума в 4,3 процента. В прошлом месяце количество рабочих мест в несельскохозяйственном секторе увеличилось на 138 000, поскольку производственные, правительственные и розничные сектора потеряли рабочие места, сообщило в пятницу Министерство труда. Данные за март и апрель были пересмотрены, чтобы показать на 66 000 меньше рабочих мест, чем сообщалось ранее. Число рабочих мест в мае отметилось резким замедлением с 181 000 среднемесячных значений за последние 12 месяцев. В то время как прирост за прошлый месяц может быть достаточным для того, чтобы Федрезерв повысил процентные ставки в этом месяце, скромный рост может вызвать озабоченность по поводу состояния экономики после того, как рост замедлился в первом квартале. Экономика должна создавать от 75 000 до 100 000 рабочих мест в месяц, чтобы не отставать от роста численности населения трудоспособного возраста. Рост рабочих мест замедляется, поскольку рынок труда приближается к полной занятости. Уровень безработицы упал на одну десятую процентного пункта до самого низкого уровня с мая 2001 года. В этом году он снизился на пять десятых процента. Падение в прошлом месяце произошло, когда люди покинули рабочую силу. Более мелкие и более неустойчивые обследования домашних хозяйств также показали снижение занятости. Отчет о занятости, который внимательно отслеживается, был опубликован менее чем за две недели до заседания ФРС 13-14 июня. Экономисты прогнозировали рост числа занятых на 182 000 рабочих мест в прошлом месяце, а уровень безработицы на уровне 4,4 процента. Протоколы заседания ФРС от 2-3 мая, которые были опубликованы на прошлой неделе, показали, что, хотя политики согласны с тем, что они должны удерживать ставки на повышение, пока не появится доказательство того, что замедление темпов роста является временным, «большинство участников» считают, что «скоро будет целесообразно» увеличить затрата по займам. Центральный банк США повысил процентные ставки на 25 базисных пунктов в марте. Данные о потребительских расходах и производстве свидетельствуют о том, что экономика начала расти в начале второго квартала после того, как валовой внутренний продукт в начале года увеличился на 1,2 процента в годовом исчислении. Федеральная резервная система Атланты прогнозирует рост ВВП со скоростью 4,0 процента во втором квартале. Но устойчиво вялый рост заработной платы может отбросить тень на дальнейшее ужесточение денежно-кредитной политики. Средний почасовой доход вырос на четыре цента или на 0,2 процента в мае после аналогичного повышения в апреле. Это привело к увеличению заработной платы в годовом исчислении на 2,5 процента. Среднестатистическое ежечасное повышение доходов происходит потому, что годовые темпы инфляции отступили в последние месяцы. Но в этом году рынок труда, как ожидается, достигнет полной занятости, и есть оптимизм в том, что рост заработной платы ускорится. Растет неопровержимое доказательство того, что компании пытаются найти квалифицированных рабочих. ФРС в своей Бежевой книге в среду заявила, что производственные фирмы в районе Чикаго сообщили о повышении заработной платы для неквалифицированных рабочих на 10 процентов для привлечения более качественных работников и сохранения своей рабочей силы. Президент от Республиканской партии Дональд Трамп, унаследовавший сильный рынок труда от администрации Обамы, пообещал резко повысить экономический рост и еще больше укрепить рынок труда, сократив налоги и сократив регулирование. Однако есть опасения, что политические скандалы могут сорвать экономическую повестку дня администрации Трампа. Доля участия рабочей силы или доля трудоспособных американцев, которые наняты или, по крайней мере, ищут работу, снизилась на две десятых процента до 62,7 процента. Показатель отскочил от многолетнего минимума в 62,4 процента в сентябре 2015 года, и экономисты видят ограниченные возможности для дальнейших успехов, так как пул разочарованных работников сокращается. В прошлом месяце занятость в производстве сократилась на 1000 рабочих мест, так как в автомобильном секторе зарплаты сократились на 1,5 тыс. при падении продаж. Ford Motor Co заявила, что в прошлом месяце она планировала сократить 1 400 рабочих мест в Северной Америке и Азии за счет добровольного досрочного выхода на пенсию и других финансовых стимулов. В прошлом месяце количество рабочих мест в сфере строительства выросло на 11 000 человек. Розничная занятость упала на 6 100, снизившись четвертый месяц подряд. Операторы универмагов, такие как JC Penney Co Inc, Macy's Inc и Abercrombie & Fitch борются с жесткой конкуренцией со стороны интернет-магазинов во главе с Amazon. В прошлом месяце правительственная занятость сократилась на 9 тыс. человек. Информационно-аналитический отдел TeleTradeИсточник: FxTeam

Who Accepts Bitcoins As Payment? List Of Companies, Stores, Shops...

Submitted by Jonas Chokun via 99Bitcoins.com, Who accept bitcoins as payment? Bitcoins are taking over the crypto-currency marketplace. They’re the largest and most well-known digital currency. Many large companies are accepting bitcoins as a legitimate source of funds. They allow their online products to be bought with bitcoins. With the extreme facilitation of transfer and earning of bitcoins, it would be a mistake not to accept these new-found online coins as cash. With a fluctuating value, the funds can either help or hurt the company.
