Nashville SoundsReno, NV – The Nashville Sounds opened the second portion of their West Coast road trip with an 11-5 victory over Reno on Sunday evening at Aces Ballpark in the opener of a four-game series.

The Sounds took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning when Logan Schafer led off the contest with a single and later scored on a Mat Gamel groundout.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of August 7th

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

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

Leaders in Washington reached an agreement to raise the debt ceiling, averting a self-inflicted financial disaster. However, with the debt ceiling nonsense out of the way, investors were free to focus on the U.S. economic recovery and Europe’s debt crisis – and the outlook doesn’t look so hot. The U.S. economy has slowed and the downside risks to the growth outlook have increased. Although it still appears that the U.S. is likely to avoid a recession, the odds have increased. The European debt crisis appears to be enveloping Spain and Italy, which will be much bigger problems for the big banks in Europe. Stocks fell broadly around the world.

The July Employment report was consistent with the broad range of economic data releases of the last few weeks, suggesting a subpar economic recovery, but not a recession. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 117,000 – well above the +85,000 consensus forecast and, more importantly, not as bad as feared. The unemployment rate edged down to 9.1%, but would have risen if not for people exiting the labor force. After digesting the report, the stock market gave up gains made in an initial (positive) reaction to the report. Bonds yields fell. The dollar was mixed following efforts by the Swiss and the Japanese to weaken their currencies. «Read the rest of this article»
