The Week Ahead October 26-30, 2009

Monday: September Construction Spending, Pending Home Sales,
Tuesday: Factory Orders, Auto & Truck Sales
Wednesday: Federal Reserve Meeting
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims, 3rd Quarter Productivity
Friday: Consumer Credit,
Wholesale Inventories

Larson Notes: The government stimulus in cars grew the economy lst month together with home sales by 3.5%. That is mainly due to cash for clunkers and the $8000 home owner’s tax exemption. But without more incentives it could be a short lived recovery? 1st time homeowner’s extension? Yes! Cash for energy efficient appliances? Yes?

Yes millions of Americans are unemployed and more are weekly. So what can we do to bring jobs back from overseas or “reshoring”? Better think long and hard, it’s our future at stake.

So what’s up for this week? The reports will be good as manufacturing restocks their inventories and construction is held together by a song and a prayer. Most of the Obama money will be stalled and going out to the states to pay off their debt rather that help in job creation. In fact the only bad report this week will be unemployment as business continues to hold the line on hiring Most of the focus will be on the government and watching the Senate debate the 1st time homeowners tax rebate extension (good) and government healthcare (bad).

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.
