The Quikrete Industry Dashboard will see a flurry of activity in the week beginning Nov. 17, with three consecutive days of monthly sales, housing starts and existing home sales.
Until then, metric-watchers will have to settle for updates on share prices of major publicly traded companies and an ever-so-slight adjustment to the AAA gas price dial.
Only two out of ten companies tracked on the HBSDealer Stock Roundup are positive for the month and the year – DE and SHW. The Dow Jones Industrial also landed in the top right growth quadrant, but barely.
Gas prices, as measured by the American Automobile Association are holding steady at $2.13 per gallon of regular. Well below last year’s average of $2.60.
Monthly retail sales will be reported on Tuesday, followed by housing starts on Wednesday and existing home sales on Thursday.
