Tuesday: August Consumer Confidence
Wednesday: July Durable Goods Orders; July New Home Sales
Thursday: Weekly initial jobless claims
Friday: July Person Income and spending
Larson note: Last week came out pretty good. Stocks up and existing home sales up 7.2%! Even the Feds are saying things are looking good.
This week? Yes. I think we have turned the corner. If you don’t have your advertising, marketing and sales play in full swing, you had better hope your competition doesn’t either. I believe that the economy works off of three areas, construction, home sales and cars. If these areas are doing well, so will the economy. Think about it.
The focused industries we are looking to add clients in for the month are Advertising Specialties, Trade Show Booth Builder, Sign Shop, and a Graphic Design Studio, and Printer (small and mid-sized) and looking to add more accounts in the eastern and pacific time zones. We are also looking for sales persons in New England, Texas and Southern California.
