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 on the soft side of expectations. Durable goods orders fell 3.8% in April, reflecting supply-chain disruptions from Japan and a pullback in civilian aircraft orders (which tend to be erratic). Ex-transportation, orders fell 1.5%, but that followed a 2.5% gain in March. New home sales rose 7.3% in April, but it’s not hard to get a large percentage increase when the level is so low (note: the April change was not statistically significant from zero). The Pending Home Sales Index, which measures signed contracts, sank 11.6% in April – not good, and consistent with other signs of a disappointing spring season in housing. Consumer sentiment improved. Jobless claims were higher than anticipated.

Real GDP growth rose at a 1.8% annual rate in the 2nd estimate for 1Q11, the same as in the advance estimate (vs. a median forecast of +2.1%). Consumer spending was unexpectedly revised down to a 2.2% annual rate (vs. +2.7% in the advance estimate and +4.0% in 4Q10). «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville Area Memorial Day Events

 

Written by the Women Veterans of America Chapter 20

Women Veterans of AmericaClarksville, TN – Three years after the Civil War ended, Maj. Gen. John A. Logan, head of the Grand Army of the Republic, an organization of Union veterans, established May 30th as Decoration Day, a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country.

Gen. Logan’s order for his posts to decorate graves in 1868 “with the choicest flowers of springtime” urged:  “We should guard their graves with sacred vigilance. … Let pleasant paths invite the coming and going of reverent visitors and fond mourners.  Let no neglect, no ravages of time, testify to the present or to the coming generations that we have forgotten as a people the cost of a free and undivided republic.”
