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 mostly positive. Real GDP rose at a 3.2% annual rate in Q410, a bit below the consensus forecast, but the details were relatively strong. Inventory growth slowed sharply, subtracting 3.7 percentage points from headline GDP. Exports continued to advance, but imports fell (note that imports have a negative sign in the GDP calculation), and combined, net exports added 3.4 percentage points to GDP growth.

Consumer spending rose at a strong 4.4% annual rate, partly reflecting a drop in the savings rate. Business fixed investment also rose 4.4%, slower than in recent quarters, but still positive. The sharp deceleration in inventory growth (assuming it holds up in revisions) suggests strong GDP growth in the near term (as inventory growth picks back up). Note that the 2% reduction in payroll taxes will boost disposable income and support consumer spending growth in early 2011. «Read the rest of this article»
