The Week Ahead December 21 - December 24, 2009

Tuesday: Gross Domestic Product 3rd quarter est., Existing Home Sales
Wednesday: Personal Income and Consumption, New Home Sales, Crude Inventories
Thursday: Durable Goods Orders, Weekly initial jobless claims

Larson Notes & Satire: Jobs, jobs, jobs. The statics that came out last week did not look good for jobs. As we look to the New Year there are two major areas we need to be looking at productivity and jobs. If we can put in place the jobs needed we will increase consumption which will increase demand. If we can lower taxes we can put more money in the pockets of people and businesses that will buy what we sell. If we can keep the dollar low, we can continue to market more heavily overseas but of course the drawback is imports will cost more. It’s a tossup as to is it good or is it bad No, I’m not greedy only practical.

As for this shortened Christmas week, I am looking at good things for the most part the GDP should be up, I think home sales will still be up and Durable Goods should be holding strong. Jobs, well see above.

On the political front the healthcare bill is passing and the unemployment and defense spending went though.

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 Printers both small and mid-sized.

We are still looking for sales persons in all areas except
the Great Plains States.
