From the article linked above:

The U.S. Census Bureau said new home sales in November 2018 came in at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 657,000, crushing the 560,000 consensus forecast.

The forecasts ranged from a low of 535,000 to a high of 581,000, with the actual number coming in way above the high end.

The figure for November is 16.9% higher than the revised October rate of 562,000, but 7.7% below the November 2017 estimate of 712,000.

 

 

From the article linked above:

The Labor Department (DOL) via the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reported Thursday that wages and salaries in the fourth-quarter (Q4) 2018 posted the largest gain since Q3 2008.

The 3.1% increase, which was included in the Employment Cost Index that came in at 0.7%, is the first time in more than a decade that wages and salaries broke 3%.

The Federal Reserve closely watches the Employment Cost Index, which also found compensation costs for civilian workers rose 2.9% for the 12-month period ending December 2018.

Compensation costs for private industry workers increased 3.0% over the year compared to a 2.6% gain in 2017.
