The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of July 30th, 2012

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

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

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesThe economic data was mediocre, but the financial markets apparently had expected worse. Real GDP rose at a 1.5% annual rate, matching expectations. There were no surprises in the key components – consumer spending growth slowed and business fixed investment was positive but not especially strong. New home sales fell unexpectedly in June, but figures for the three previous months were revised higher.

Jobless claims dropped, but the weekly figures are unreliable in July (due to difficulties adjusting for summer plant retooling shutdowns in the auto industry) – the underlying trend remains moderate. Durable goods orders were mixed in June, with strength in aircraft and weakness in most other sectors. «Read the rest of this article»

Austin Peay State University student Tracee Gruskiewicz currently running across America

 

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – A couple of years ago, Austin Peay State University student and former cross country team standout Tracee Gruskiewicz fell out of love with running. She didn’t want to lace up her shoes anymore and push herself to do three-, four- or five-mile runs through the streets of Clarksville.

That attitude seems so foreign to her now. Particularly earlier this month, when she ran through the Mojave Desert at night to stay cool. Or the day she jogged into Texas, the humid air thick like a sweater against her skin. Not running was never an option. Instead, she dipped a shirt in ice water, draped it around her head, and tried to get her average 35 miles of running in for the day.

APSU Student Tracee Gruskiewicz stopped at Clarksville's Freedom Deli to rest before continuing her run across America.
