The Week Ahead Aug 10-14, 2009

Tuesday: 2nd Quarter Productivity, June Wholesale Inventory
Wednesday: June Trade Balance,
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims July Retail Sales, June Business Inventories
Friday: July Consumer Price
Index, July Industrial Production

Larson note: Well 2 good weeks in a row do I hear 3? I’m thinking yes. Despite the high unemployment rate things are will continue to look good. I’m hoping for low inventory levels which lead to higher production levels. Retail sales, well? Wait till August.

At Larson’s our inventory levels of unused “man hours” is lower than a month ago. Our production levels were higher than a year ago and out output levels have increased over 100% over a year ago

The focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month 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.
