APSU Men’s Basketball

Austin Peay State University GovernorsMartin, TN – On the surface Austin Peay’s bid to open the 2010-11 Ohio Valley Conference at 6-0 would seem to be a mismatch when the Governors face UT Martin, 6:00pm, Monday.

The Governors come in amidst a five-game winning streak and already have won three league road games after ending Murray State’s 25-game home winning streak, 66-64, Saturday.

Meanwhile, UT Martin enters the contest amidst a five-game losing streak and is winless in the OVC at 0-5.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen


Weekly Market Snapshot

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

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

The stock market began the year relatively optimistic about the 2011 economic outlook, but the week’s mixed economic data dampened the euphoria to some extent. The ISM surveys improved in December, but the employment gauges in those reports were relatively soft. While the holiday shopping season was deemed a great success, chain-store sales results were mixed (as many disappointments as upside surprises).

The December Employment Report was a mixed bag. The strong ADP estimate of private-sector payrolls (+297,000) led many economists to revise their forecasts of the official Bureau of Labor Statistics figure. The BLS payroll figure disappointed, rising by only 103,000, although a +70,000 revision to the two previous months took away some of the sting. Job gains were led by leisure and hospitality (+47,000) and healthcare (+35,700). Temp-help added 15,900 (+16.1% y/y). State and local government shed 20,000 (down 250,000, or 1.3%, over the last 12 months).

The unemployment rate fell to 9.4% from 9.8%, but part of that appears to have been an unwinding of a quirk that boosted the rate in November. In addition, the temporary lapse in extended unemployment insurance benefits likely reduced the rate in December. The employment-to-population ratio has been little changed over the last 12 months. «Read the rest of this article»
