The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

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

Investors remained focused on political developments in the Middle East and North Africa. The turmoil in Libya led to a drop in oil production (less than 1% of global output), higher oil prices, and a dampening of U.S. stock market sentiment. Assurances that other producers could make up for the Libyan shortfall helped stem the rise oil prices, although broader worries remain. At the end of the week, gasoline futures suggested about a $3.60 average price for a gallon of gasoline – the increase in gasoline prices, if sustained, would offset much of the positive benefit (to consumer spending) of lower payroll taxes.

The economic data were mixed, partly reflecting unfavorable weather in January. The estimate of real GDP growth for Q410 was revised down (to a +2.8% annual rate, vs. +3.2% in the advance estimate). Consumer spending growth was revised lower (to 4.1% from 4.4%), as anticipated, and business fixed investment was a bit higher (mostly business structures). Oddly, there was virtually no revision in either inventories (which subtracted 3.7 percentage points from GDP growth in 4Q10) or in net exports (which added 3.4 percentage points). State and local government expenditures fell at a 2.4% annual rate (vs. -0.8% in the advance estimate), reflecting budget strains. «Read the rest of this article»
