Today’s nonfarm payrolls report came in much weaker than expected, and equity markets reacted very negatively to the news initially. After hitting their lows for the day quickly after the open, though, markets surged for the remainder of the day and actually finished up more than 1%.
We wanted to bring your attention to our just-published Bespoke Consumer Pulse Report, which is our monthly survey of U.S. consumers that tracks economic activity and all of the consumer-related stocks traded on U.S. exchanges.
Getting early reads on changes in the economy right now is extremely useful for portfolio positioning as we head into year end, especially as the Fed has to decide whether to finally hike rates after years of zero interest rate policy.
Our Pulse Report is our way of presenting these early economic reads to our clients, and if you’re not yet a Pulse subscriber, we urge you to sign up and come on board. Once you’re signed up, you’ll receive Pulse in your inbox every month.
