The Week Ahead Sept 21-25, 2009

Monday: Leading Indicators
Tuesday: FHFA US Housing Price Index
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims. Existing Home Sales, Durable Goods Orders
Friday: August New Home Sales

Larson note: We saw some bad and I mean bad employment numbers last week, as August numbers really took a beating, yet on the up side the manufacturing figures looked good, very good. So where do we go from here. Yes employment is going to stay tight, very tight as employers get more out of what they got. Yet, look for more capital investment to increase output and look for more labor concessions to let the US companies build new factories and the reshoring (work contracted to a supplier overseas that is brought back to the United States) see this Thursday’s blog on reshoring by GE.

Are we out of the recession? Maybe. Are we out of the woods? Hardly.

The focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, a Graphic Design Studio, and Printer both small and mid-sized.

Additionally we are also looking for sales persons in all areas except
the Great Plains States.

If interested give us a call at 847-991-0488.
