Monday: June new home sales
Tuesday: July consumer confidence, May Case-Shiller home prices
Wednesday: June durable-goods orders, Federal Reserve beige book.
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims
Friday: 2nd Quarter GDP

Larson note: I promised you a good statistic week last week and bingo, you got it, heck we even got a an added bonus of a no hitter perfect game pitched by Mark Buehrle of the Chicago White Sox’s. The Dow goes over 9000 and then Ford posted a profit!

The indicators were up in 7 out of 10 categories, including building permits, stock prices, manufactures new orders, and positive readings on jobs. Holding the indicator index down was consumer expectations, manufactures’’ orders of capital goods and the real money supply This was the 3rd consecutive upward reading on the economic indicators and we have yet to see any OBAMA stimulus money. I would expect more good news this week.

For Larson & Associates our focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month of July are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, and a Graphic Design Studio, and Printer (small and mid-sized) and looking to add more accounts in the eastern and pacific time zones. We are also looking for sales persons in New England, Texas and Southern California.
