Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of June 4th, 2013

 

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 were mixed, but generally better than expected.  Home prices continued to advance.  Consumer confidence improved. The estimate of first quarter GDP growth was revised lower (a 2.4% annual rate, vs. +2.5% in the advance estimate), but consumer spending and business fixed investment were both revised a bit higher. Personal income was flat in April (the Employment Report had shown a decrease in hours offsetting the impact of more jobs).

Personal spending fell 0.2%, partly reflecting lower gasoline prices and more normal temperatures (lower household energy consumption). Ex-energy, spending would have risen about 0.3%. Inflation-adjusted consumer spending (70% of GDP) edged up 0.1% – it’s only one month (and subject to revision), but spending appears to be on track for about a 2% annual rate in 2Q13 (vs. +3.4% in 1Q13). «Read the rest of this article»
