  • Consumer spending, the biggest part of the economy, rose at a 3.5 percent rate, revised from 3 percent; added 2.4 percentage points to growth, revised from 2.05 points
  • Corporate profits in the U.S. jumped 9.3 percent from a year earlier, the most since 2012, and rose 0.5 percent from the previous three months, in the first estimate for the fourth quarter
  • Trade subtracted 1.82 percentage points from growth, the most since 2004, compared with the prior estimate of a 1.7-point drag, on weaker exports and higher imports
