The Week Ahead for June 8 – June 12, 2009

Tuesday: April wholesale inventories
Wednesday: April trade balance, Federal Reserve beige book
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, May retail sales, April business inventories

Larson note: Donnelley, GM, go bankrupt last week. Wondering when a company going bankrupt can be considered good? I could care less what the Federal Government says, to me it is bad! Who pays the price the real price of the bankruptcy? People, businesses who did work and gave terms get the shaft. When a company declares bankruptcy there are a number of untold companies that find themselves caught up in the spill-over effect of not being able to collect moneys due. Being an unsecured creditor they are at the end of the repayment line. Don’t get caught short. Watch your accounts receivable like a hawk.

As for this week’s reports. Look for good inventory levels (low) which means that companies will need to be doing some buying to get those shelves restocked. With people feeling better about things even with the high unemployment (remember real unemployment is probably twice what the government reports) when people feel good they will spend money. Go get your share.
