The Week Ahead for April 20 – April 24, 2009

Monday: March leading economic indicators, Boston Marathon
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, March existing home sales
Friday: March durable goods orders, March new home sales

Larson note: I see a “feel good” week ahead. With the stock market up, earnings of the (bailed out) banks good if not great people might pock their heads up and smell the roses. Don’t be lulled thinking this recession is near over. At a minimum we have 2 more months of working our butts off. Then you can start to roll that economic rock you have been pushing uphill down and pick up some good solid economic speed, but keep your head on and prepare yourself and your company working hard for a little while longer, when it happens the pay off will be huge.

Larson & Associates Our focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month of April are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, and an Art Studio. Special bird dog rates apply in these industries
