Final Measure Of Q3 GDP Misses Estimates

 The number: 2.6% is a bit lower than expectations of 2.7%.

That’s higher than the previous revisions, but again, thanks to slightly weak spending numbers that’s weaker than expected.

But again, we’re talking about a quarter that ended in September.


Background: Kind of a snooze at this point, because it’s the third revision of a quarter that ended months ago, but analysts are looking for the third revision of GDP to come in at 2.7%. That’s a bit up from 2.5% in the November revision.
