This Week’s Business & Market Headlines:
- Motor vehicle sales jump in February. Sales of cars and trucks grew by 7% last month, soaring to a 15-year high for the month of February – traditionally a slow time for auto sales.
- U.S. factory activity slows for fifth straight month. A gauge of manufacturing activity shows that the sector contracted again in February, but the pace of decline slowed, indicating that relief may be on the horizon.
- Beige book shows economic activity increased. A mid-quarter indicator of U.S. economic growth showed that overall activity increased, but it varied widely by region. This mixed picture may be a headache for the Fed.
- Oil prices jump 10%. Benchmark oil prices logged their biggest weekly gain this year as traders digested news of falling U.S. production and possible supply freezes. West Texas Intermediate closed at $35.92 on the likelihood of lower production in the coming weeks.

“The Oscars command a higher price per viewer than a $5 million Super Bowl spot because of the audience, said Tim Calkins, professor of marketing at Northwestern University’s Kellogg School of Management.
“There’s the element of celebrity and glamour that is very different than the Super Bowl,” Calkins said.
