Keep An Eye On The Upcoming Economic Data

How Value Investors Can Win With Tech And “Fallen” Growth Stocks

Valuation Present ValueMany value investors have given up on their strategy over the last 15 years amid concerns that value investing no longer worked. However, some made small adjustments to their strategy but remained value investors to the core.

“This week, there's a lot of economic data coming out, Celia said. “We get manufacturing numbers coming out on Tuesday and we get factory orders, as well as ADP report coming out on Wednesday. The ADP report ought to be very interesting for the month of July. We are sitting at 167,000 private sector jobs. ADP is a really good gauge of what is happening in the private sector. Thursday, we get initial job claims. I think that this Thursday we could go below 1 million in first time, unemployment claims. I sure hope that happens. Also continuing job claims have been dropping for the last two weeks and hopefully we'll see another drop.

“We get some productivity revisions for the second quarter of the year,” Celia continued. “And I am expecting that this revision is going to be an upward revision as much as one full percentage point. We are sitting at 7.3% right now. And again, I'm very, very interested in this number. Service sector numbers also coming out; that's far more important than manufacturing numbers. And of course, Friday, the all-important payroll numbers. I wouldn't be surprised if we're over a million in payrolls and we get a new unemployment rate. I believe the unemployment number is going to be below 10%. We'll have unemployment number with a single digit and that will be a lot earlier than certainly me or anyone else was expecting. We'll watch all that closely, a lot coming up for the week.”

Celia discusses these and other global and economic headlines on his daily, three-hour Financial Issues program, heard on more than 660 radio stations and several television networks nationwide, including FISM.TV, viewed on several post-cable television platforms and online.
