Tuesday: Durable Goods Orders (B), Case-Shiller Home Price Index, Consumer Confidence (B)
Wednesday: Durable Goods Orders (B), New Home Sales (C+), Crude Inventories
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims (C+), Gross Domestic Product (B)
Friday: Personal Income and Consumption (C+), Chicago Regional Manufacturing Surveys (B)

*Rating Scale by Importance (A-F)

Larson note: Last week we saw Home sales go up but new housing starts going down. What can you expect? With the glut of homes on the market there are some real bargains if you have the money and/or credit, but new homes, not quite as cheap. Of course that is not to mention (remind you of) the $8,000 first time buyer tax credit. The US Senate could decide this week if it going to extend the credit, but if you are in the market I would not trust them to do the right thing.

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.

We are still looking for sales persons in all areas except
the Great Plains States.
If interested give us a call at 847-991-0488.
