Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 31st, 2017

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Next week, the ISM surveys have some market-moving potential and we should receive anecdotal information on the strength of holiday sales, but the focus is expected to be on the employment figures.

Seasonal adjustment is a bit quirky in December and can easily magnify the normal statistical noise in the job market figures (as a reminder, the monthly change in nonfarm payrolls is reported accurate to ±120,000 and the unemployment rate is reported accurate to ±0.2%). Market participants are likely to focus on average hourly earnings, which can be noisy.

Nashville Predators Fall To Dallas Stars In Shoot-Out 4-3

 

Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators had every opportunity to beat the Dallas Stars Saturday night at the American Airlines Center, but couldn’t close the deal during a five on three overtime power play, falling 4-3 in a shoot-out.

Nashville took an early 2-0 lead in the contest when Alexel Emelin opened the scoring just 34 seconds into the game with a bullet from the point to put the Predators on the board first. 

Calle Jarnkrok then laced one top shelf over Ben Bishop, with the Predators short-handed, to make it 2-0, and Nashville was off to the races.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of December 17th, 2017

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – As expected, the Fed raised short-term interest rates for the third time in 2017 (market participants were more focused on the progress of tax legislation).

The dots in the dot plot did not shift much from where they were in September and were all over the place for the end of 2018 and 2019 – meaning that there is no clear consensus on the pace of policy action (and bear in mind that personnel changes mean that many of these dots will be replaced in 2018).

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of November 28th, 2017

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Next week, the economic calendar picks back up and the Senate returns to work on its version of a tax-cut bill.

However, the focus is expected to be on Jay Powell’s Fed chair nomination hearing. Powell is unlikely to speak about the near-term policy outlook (what the Fed will do in December), but lawmakers will ask about his broader approach to monetary policy and banking regulation (expect vigorous questioning from Senator Warren, but he should eventually receive approval in a full Senate vote).

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of August 27th, 2017

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Next week, the economic calendar picks up, with the important figures (nonfarm payrolls, ISM manufacturing) arriving as market participants get set for the three-day weekend. Consumer confidence figures will cover the first half of the month and are therefore unlikely to reflect much of an impact from Charlottesville.

Second quarter GDP growth is likely to be revised higher in the 2nd estimate (a 2.6% pace in the advance estimate).

My Time with Pastor Jimmy Terry

 

Written by Charlie Koon

Charlie KoonClarksville, TN – The tributes to Pastor Jimmy Terry have been fast a furious since the passing of the beloved community activist.  His life’s work has been glorified through the testimony of hundreds and thousands of Clarksville area residents, who have been touched by his loving spirit, and service to his community.  

Incoming Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce President, Charlie Koon, penned this letter about his relationship with Pastor Terry, and a visit he had with him in his final days. 

As someone who has been fairly active in Clarksville for most of my life, I’ve known Pastor Terry for a long time. He has been a fixture in our community, showing up at Chamber events, school functions, ball games and ringing the Salvation Army bell at Christmas time. Our paths have crossed countless times, over the years.

Jimmy Terry.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of June 7th, 2017

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The May Employment Report was generally disappointing. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 138,000 (median forecast: +185,000), while figures for March and April were revised a net 66,000 lower.

Retail payrolls fell for the fourth consecutive month (down more than 80,000 since January, which is more than the total number of coal miners). The unemployment rate dipped to 4.3%, a 16-year low, partly reflecting a sharp drop in the rate for young adults (which could reflect a seasonal adjustment issue, although the trend is clearly lower).
