Jobless Claims Fall to Lowest in a Month

Initial jobless claims fell last week to the lowest level in a month, the Labor Department said Thursday.

Claims fell 27,000 for the week ended Saturday to 365,000.

Economists had forecast a drop to 379,000, from 388,000 originally reported the previous week, Bloomberg reported.
