Description: US Services Industry Assessment
Author: Chris Devlin
 
Step 1. Review the Industry Analysis   (Show detailed report)
 
1. Importance Very important   The Services industry now constitutes the single largest segment of the US economy. Therefore, it is important to understand consumer spending in the Services industry when making investment decisions.
2. Wisdom Important   It is wise to consider the health of the Services industry. The better it is doing, the better the overall US economy will do, and the better the many sub-industries will do.
3. Knowledge Important   If the Services is growing more than 2.5% a year, that is a very good signal and a great opportunity to own stocks. If the Services industry is growing between 1.0% and 2.5% a year, it is more prudent to hold more cash or bonds. If the Services industry is growing less than 1.5% or is shrinking (negative growth), it is more prudent to have the majority of your holdings in cash or bonds.
4. Current Assessment Good   The current assessment of the Services industry is good. There is moderate expansion in all sub-industries, with continual shakeout occurring because of advancement in technology and methods of distribution.
5. Future Assessment Good   The future direction of the Services Industry is good. Although consumer's credit has been curtailed by a decline in 2nd mortgage and equity loans which have been a readily available source of credit, the consumer appetite remains strong for better and cheaper services.
