The Week Ahead Sept 28 – Oct 2, 2009

Tuesday: Case-Shiller Housing Price Index, Consumer Confidence
Wednesday: Gross Domestic Product, Regional Manufacturing Surveys
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, Personal Income and Consumption, Construction Spending, Auto and Truck Sales,
Friday: Factory Orders, Payroll / Nonfarm Payrolls

Larson note: Wow was I off last week. I expected upward trends and saw bad news home sales and factory order. Good news was the Fed will hold interest rates steady.

This week I am at a total loss. I like what I am hearing on the street and at trade shows on factory orders but without employment it is going to be hard to keep up. And for unemployment I look at companies purchasing equipment to keep up productivity rather then going out and hiring anyone.

On the Larson front I have Dan ? waiting in the wings as prime telemarketer for companies in advertising, websites and communication. He has training and experience and expect to have using him at full capacity within 2 weeks. If you are in these areas you might want to give us a call. I expect Dan's hours to be taking up quickly.

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.
