    The housing sector will be front and center next week as we find out how the sector is coping with the shelter-in-place dynamics. Additionally, we will get the initial (flash) PMI readings on the manufacturing and services sectors. During past recessions, the services sector fared better than the manufacturing sector. However, that looks to change during this recession, as the shelter-in-place mandate has crippled services-oriented businesses such as restaurants, travel, and tourism more so than manufactures who are producing goods that are still needed for everyday life.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition

    Financials kick off what should be a very interesting earnings season during the upcoming week. The first half of the quarter saw solid economic growth, a historically tight labor market, and a strong consumer; however, the second half of the quarter was very, shall we say, obverse. I think more important than the reported first quarter earnings will be the amount of guidance downgrades for the remainder of 2020 due to the great uncertainty moving forward. Earnings forecasts have been declining and it will be interesting to hear what the corporations are expecting moving forward and how they are handling the COVID-19 crisis.

    Ryan Nauman's Weekly Recap: COVID-19 Market Edition

    Another week, another eye-opening initial jobless claims number. The question is, will the week ahead continue the trend? It is hard to imagine claims rising above this weeks 6.6 million and the 10 million over the past two weeks. However, it will not surprise me if the upcoming claims number does eclipse 6.6 million. Expectations are for inflation to increase in the future; however, I believe in the near-term inflation will remain muted and even fall slightly as spending has decreased.
