October 4, 2018

Austin Peay State University (APSU)

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Frank Tate, executive director of the Clarksville-Montgomery County Industrial Development Board, knows how to brag. If you’re going to make a bold statement, you’d better be able to back it up. On Wednesday morning, during the Alignment of Community and Education Industry Summit, hosted by Austin Peay State University’s College of STEM, he told a packed audience of local business, civic and educational leaders that Clarksville-Montgomery County is the best place in all of Tennessee to live, work, play and thrive. In his words, it’s “ideal.”

Austin Peay State University President Alisa White and Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan talk before the summit.

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

June 7, 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).

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of May 10th, 2016

May 10, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The economic data were mixed, but generally consistent with moderately strong economic growth in the near term. Motor vehicle sales rebounded in April, from what appears to have been an Easter-related decline in March.

The ISM surveys split; manufacturing a bit softer, non-manufacturing a bit stronger. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 160,000 in the initial estimate for April, below the median forecast (+200,000), but not horrible (note that the economy added 1.057 million jobs before seasonal adjustment).

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of May 1st, 2016

May 1, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – As expected, the Federal Open Market Committee left short-term interest rates unchanged. In its policy statement, the FOMC noted that “labor market conditions have improved further even as growth in economic activity appears to have slowed.”

The key phrase from the mid-March statement, “global economic and financial developments continue to pose risks,” was removed, although officials promised to closely monitor conditions. Equities rallied on the Fed statement (in part, perhaps, because the meeting was simply out of the way), but global markets weakened after the Bank of Japan failed to stimulate further.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of March 6th, 2016

March 6, 2016

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Nonfarm payrolls rose more than expected in February, while figures for the two previous months were revised higher. At 228,000, the three-month average has remained strong. The unemployment rate held steady at 4.9%, but labor force participation continued to pick up and the employment/population ratio is trending higher.

Hours fell, likely reflecting bad weather (weakness in hours was concentrated in mining, which includes energy exploration, and construction). Average hourly earnings fell 0.1% (following a 0.5% rise in January), bringing the year-over-year gain down to 2.2% (from 2.5%), but the three-month average was up nearly 2.5% y/y.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of November 8th, 2015

November 8, 2015

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The October employment report was much stronger than anticipated. However, figures should be considered in their proper context. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 271,000, with a net upward revision to the two previous months of +12,000.

Due to the start of the school year, seasonal adjustment can be tricky in October (we added 1.152 million jobs before seasonal adjustment, versus 1.081 million in October 2014).

Volatility is expected to decrease in coming days, but may continue for a while.
