U.S. home sales surge to near two-year high; supply at record low
U.S. home sales jumped to their highest level in nearly two years in December, the latest indication that lower mortgage rates are helping the housing market to regain its footing after hitting a soft patch in 2018, though record low inventory could be an obstacle to continued strong gains. The report from the National Association of Realtors on Wednesday followed on the heels of government data last week showing homebuilding raced to a 13-year high in December. Renewed housing market momentum could soften some of the hit on the economy from manufacturing as the thaw in U.S.-China trade tensions is offset by Boeing's suspension this month of production of its troubled 737 MAX plane.

Texas Instruments Points to Signs of Chip Industry Revival
(Bloomberg) -- Texas Instruments Inc. gave a quarterly sales and profit forecast that was in line with estimates, indicating that demand from electronics makers is poised to improve amid progress resolving the China-U.S. trade dispute.First-quarter earnings will be 96 cents a share to $1.14 a share, on revenue of $3.12 billion to $3.38 billion, the Dallas-based company said Wednesday in a statement. On average, analysts predicted profit of $1.04 a share and sales of $3.2 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.Texas Instruments has the biggest customer list and widest product range in the semiconductor industry, making its earnings an indicator of demand across the economy. The company has told investors the electronics business is in the middle of a typical cyclical decline after companies ordered too many parts last year. Such gluts typically last five quarters. In Wednesday's report, which also included fourth-quarter results, Texas Instruments posted its fifth consecutive period of year-over-year revenue declines."Most markets showed signs of stabilizing," the company said in the statement.The company's forecast for the first quarter was held back by the outlook for the communications equipment industry, which is "going down hard," Chief Financial Officer Rafael Lizardi said during a conference call. Texas Instruments' key industrial and automotive markets are close to returning to growth, he said.Shares fell about 1% in extended trading after closing at $133.
