06 FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10, 1997 Money THE SALINA JOURNAL ECONOMY Requests for jobless benefits drop Number of workers filing for payments drops to 9-year low By Bloomberg News WASHINGTON — The number of U.S. workers filing for unemployment benefits unexpectedly dropped last week. The decrease last week pushed the total over the past month to the lowest point in almost nine years and underscored inflation concerns previously raised by Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan. First-time jobless claims fell by 5,000 in the week ended Oct. 4 to a seasonally adjusted 304,000. That's the lowest level in nine weeks, the Labor Department said, and follows a rise of 3,000 claims in the previous week to 309,000. Claims have held below 310,000 for four weeks now — the longest sustained period at that level since the first five weeks of 1989. The statistics suggest demand for workers is outstripping the growth in the labor force, putting pressure on businesses to pay workers more — a cost that businesses will ultimately pass onto consumers. "The labor pool is running dry," said Scott Brown, an economist at Raymond James & Associates in St. Petersburg, Fla. Improved efficiency in the services and manufacturing industries can go only so far. "It's like Greenspan said. It's not technology — it's biology," said Kevin Flanagan, an economist at Dean Witter Securities in New York. "There are only so many workers." Still, Fed Vice Chairman Alice Rivlin Thursday took some of the edge off Greenspan's warning, saying the economy continues to perform well and "nobody wants to slow the economy unnecessarily." And reports Thursday from major retail chains showed September sales met or fell short of expectations as buyers shunned the new lines of fall women's clothing. The retail sales figures, which suggested the economy isn't overheating, followed by Rivlin's remarks reassured investors as stocks and bonds recovered some of their earlier losses that stemmed from the jobless claims report and the concerted decisions Thursday of European central banks to raise short-term borrowing costs. The U.S. Treasury's benchmark 30-year bond dropped as much as a full point before recovering to rise by an eighth of a point in late New York trading. That pushed down the bond's yield a basis point to 6.36 percent. Stocks opened lower and the Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 21 points, or 0.25 percent, in late trading. Today's declines extended losses from Wednesday that were triggered by Greenspan's warning to Congress that the economy is running "on an unsustainable track" and that rising labor costs will likely cause inflation to accelerate.

That launched shares of the Tequesta, Fla.-based gun lock maker to 3-1/8, up 2-11/16-. The company has 6.19 million outstanding shares. The agreement by the gun manufacturers was disclosed Thursday by President Clinton. Saf-T-Lok President John Gardner said he isn't optimistic that the agreement of gun manufacturers will lead to higher immediate sales for his company because his products are more expensive than other alternatives. The locks will add $5 to $10 to the price of each handgun, according to White House estimates. However, this compares with the $50 wholesale price for Saf-T-Lok's combination lock that screws onto a handgun. Coffee prices fall when storm misses crops NEW YORK — Coffee fell amid speculation that Hurricane Pauline caused less damage than expected to coffee crops in Mexico's biggest growing region. Hurricane Pauline battered Mexico's southern Pacific coast, with the center of the storm bypassing Chiapas state, where 34 percent of Mexico's coffee is grown. While the storm dumped heavy rain on the region, some traders said the moisture could reinvigorate crops. , Easing concern about damage from Pauline comes as coffee is coming to market from harvests in Brazil and Colombia, the world's two biggest producers. That's boosting coffee supplies at a time when U.S. roaster demand is strengthening before the peak winter demand period. Coffee for December delivery fell 3.25 cents, or 1.9 percent, to $1.6375 a pound on the Coffee, Sugar & Cocoa Exchange in New York. > Th» Ilili: The lisli Include local Metes! slocks, which we boldfaced, and Ihe day's most actively I/ad- • Footnote* a - also extra or extras, b - annual rate plus slock dividend, c - llquldatim dvidond. • declared orpaidiilhepastlZrnonlhs.l- dedaredw paW alter a stock dividend«split | - paid Ms year, oMend omitted, deferred or no action taken a! last dividend mealing, k - declared or paid this year, an accumulative Issue with dividends ii arrears, n - issued within Ihe past 12 months, r - declared or paid In Ihe past 12 months plus stock dividend, i - spit or slock dividend of 25 percent or more wilh the past 25 weeks, t - paW In stock in pasl 12 months plus stock dividend, vl - company ii bankruptcy or receivership or being reorganized uixlm Die bantajplcy ad, or sscunuas assumed by such companies, wd - when distributed wl - when issued, ww with warrants, xw - without warrants, i - indicates single share totals rather lhan hundreds. > means thai anyone buying this 'ex-dividend' stock on Ihe day In question wl no! receive the most recent dividend, y _ Mcales single share telals lor ex-dividend stock.

'•• j The Dow Jones industrial aVer-.' age fell about 33 points to 8,06i'af-; ter recovering from an early 92- •' point drop that nearly dragged the blue-chip barometer belo\V j ; 8,000. ; The technology-heavy Nasdaq market and the Russell 2000 index^ of smaller company stocks rose 1 to! record highs after erasing their ; early losses. '; ; The unsettling news came a'Say after Alan Greenspan, the Fede'ral Reserve chairman, shook up investors by telling a congressional.: panel that the economic good .; ; times behind this bull market'; ; could falter. The warning came as a sur- ''• prise in the markets, where i there's been little fear that the' ; Fed might protect against infl*- ; tion by slowing the economy With' a boost in the central bank's keV ! lending rates. ' '! Cigarette prices would rise $1.50 under pact WASHINGTON — The $368.5' .' billion tobacco settlement agreed* to on June 20 would raise ciga-- ; rette prices $1.50 a pack and cu't ' consumption by 43 percent within' 10 years, according to an anal^sis^ released Thursday by the major < tobacco companies. ' •' ; The analysis disputes ad- - i ministration estimates that the settlement would raise prices by 62 cents a pack, saying that estimate doesn't include antici- ,' pated increases in state sales tax-; es, retail markups and the infla- « tion adjustment for the annual 1 payment called for in the settle; .! nient. , : Industry representative J. Phil Carlton and others have argued these points in recent weeks, put / never before have cigarette makers provided details or analysis ; to back their claims. - = From Wire Service Reports MARKETS KEY RATES Dally key rales from The New York Times Previous Year Thursday Day Ago PRIME RATE 'DISCOUNT RATE FEDERAL FUNDS(x) 3-MO.
