Monthly Market Brief February 2017

Each month, our Heritage Investment team publishes a market brief to provide an overview of the major factors influencing the US economy, including a summary of key sectors and the current positives & challenges.

Click Market Brief February 2017 for February 2017 updates.

Here are some key highlights:

o January non-farm payroll jobs came in at a solid 227,000 for a pace 50,000 jobs greater than the monthly average reported in 2016
o Inflation data remains tame but continues to trend higher as year-on-year total PCE increased 1.6%
o Consumer spending ended 2016 up 2.5 percent with spending on durable goods, particularly autos, reflecting the biggest gain in consumer spending followed by a 10.2% pop in residential investment
o Manufacturing posted strong gains in January with both the ISM & PMI, Manufacturing Indices reporting strength in new orders and increasing input costs in
response to demand
o Even while job growth continues at a relatively strong pace and the unemployment rate of 4.8% is at target, there is still apparent slack in the labor market as wage pressure remains relatively weak at 2.5%
o Consumer spending increased 0.5% in December; however, the increase is likely lower quality spending as a 0.2% decrease in consumer savings likely helped fund the increase

Heritage Team Runs in OKC Memorial Marathon


April 24th marked tIMG_8577he 16th Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon with nearly 25,000 runners of all ages in the kids, 5K, Half Marathon, Relay and Marathon, and Heritage proudly participated. In addition to the runners, hundreds of volunteers and businesses help along the course and support the runners. The race begins at the site of the Memorial in downtown OKC.

The Heritage 5 person relay team included Kenny Brown, Joni Guy, Jeff Asher, and Jennifer Pellow. Unfortunately Rusty Riggs developed a stress fracture while training so her friend Karreen stepped in to run her leg.

Three Heritage employees completed the Half Marathon: Matt McGuire, David Luke and Megan Bowers. We thank them for running and everyone in the community for supporting this race and all it stands for: #runtoremember.

Heritage marketing coordinator Jennifer Pellow, who ran in the relay, recounts her experience. “I was moved seeing all the fireman doing the half marathon in full gear, respecting all the fireman who were on the scene to help during the bombing. You know that was a huge challenge but, they seemed grateful to have that honor.”



“I also loved all the kiddos with their hands out as we ran by! It made my heart happy to be running,” she said.
