Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of January 19th, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – There were few surprises in the economic data reports. Retail sales, industrial production, and the Consumer Price Index were all relatively close to expectations. Retail sales slowed in December, reflecting a pullback in unit auto sales, up moderately otherwise (weakness in department store sales were offset by stronger e-tail activity).

Industrial production rose 0.3%, held back by a drop in the output of utilities, but factory output accelerated in 4Q13, following a soft trend in the first three quarters of 2013 (consistent with improving trends in factory payrolls and new orders). Residential construction figures disappointed, but it’s hard to get too worked up about December data (which can be exaggerated due to the weather and seasonal adjustment).

Manna Café MinistriesClarksville, TN – During the first week of January, Clarksvillians joined forces to offer refuge to those whose lives were at stake as the temperature plummeted.

Tennessee Department of Health says Fifty Years after Surgeon General’s landmark report on Tobacco, Too Many still Smoking, Suffering and Dying

 

Tennessee Department of Health - TDOHNashville, TN – The once commonly held belief that smoking tobacco was harmless, and perhaps even good for some, was shattered January 11th, 1964. The first U.S. Surgeon General’s report on smoking was issued that day, alerting Americans, and the world, to the deadly consequences of smoking.

In the 50 years since that report, the U.S. and Tennessee have made remarkable progress, cutting smoking rates significantly, protecting much of the population from harmful secondhand smoke and saving millions of lives. Still the battle against tobacco is far from won and too many people develop or sustain addictions to tobacco products. «Read the rest of this article»
