The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The economic data were mixed, but generally consistent with a continued recovery. Housing starts fell in December, but building permits (which are reported more accurately than starts) rose sharply (partly reflecting the usual volatility in the multi-family sector). Existing home sales were stronger than anticipated in December, but these represent closings (and hence, lag somewhat). Higher mortgage rates may have dampened housing activity into the new year. The Index of Leading Economic Indicators posted another strong gain in December, boosted by the rise in building permits.

The stock market seemed to struggle with good news (earnings reports and the economic data releases). Bond yields rose, pressured by the economic data and by a disappointing 10-year TIPS auction. Crude oil prices backed down somewhat following reports of higher inventories. «Read the rest of this article»

American Floyd Rocks the House at APSU

 

Clarksville, TN – American Floyd put on a great show at Austin Peay State University’s Music/Mass Communications Building here in Clarksville on Friday and Saturday Night. I was able to attend the Friday evening show.

The concert opened with chopper sound effects and then led into Pink Floyds Brick in the Wall and the video playing behind the stage on a 40 foot screen that tied it all together. Along with great music, the light and laser show was awesome. At one point while the show was jamming inside the fire alarms were triggered outside the concert hall, as the mist from the fog machines spread through the building. Of course there was no danger to anyone inside the show.
