Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist
The economic data were mostly on the strong side of expectations. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 192,000 in February, while the two previous months were revised higher by 58,000. February strength partly reflected a rebound from January’s poor weather (payrolls averaged a 127,500 monthly gain in the first two months of the year, nothing to write home about). Private-sector payrolls rose by 222,000 (+1.5 million from a year ago), while state and local government subtracted another 30,000 (-241,000 from a year ago). The unemployment rate fell to 8.9% (it was 9.8% in November), but that is misleading. The employment-population ratio, the preferred measure of slack in the labor market, held steady at 58.4% (vs. 58.5% in February 2010). Average weekly hours were flat (probably reflecting the weather). Average hourly earnings were essentially unchanged (+1.7% year-over-year), with weekly earnings also flat (+2.3% year-over-year). The February ISM manufacturing survey was the strongest since May 2004 and the non-manufacturing survey was the strongest since July 2005. Motor vehicle sales rose to a 13.4 million seasonally adjusted annual rate in February, vs. 12.6 million in January and 10.7 million in February 2010. «Read the rest of this article»
