Unemployment Falls Unexpectedly
Stocks had yet again another good week with the S&P 500 gaining nearly 5%, pushed higher by stabilizing economic data. The May jobs report and unemployment numbers were better than expected as nonfarm payrolls rose by 2.5 million in May and the unemployment rate fell to 13.3%. Expectations were for a decline of 8.3 million jobs and a jobless level of 19.5%, which would have been the worst since the Great Depression era.
