As the economy continues to climb out of the recent recession, 67 percent of key market sectors are expanding, 24 percent remain stable and 9 percent are contracting, according to clearTREND Research, developed by The Appleton Group LLC.

Beginning this month, in an exclusive print partnership with Insight, clearTREND offers monthly market analysis and research on Northeast Wisconsin’s key economic sectors, identifying turning points for individual stocks, economic sectors, mutual funds and market indices.

This month, to coincide with our editorial calendar, we highlight the Energy sector and the Engineering & Architecture sector as well as eight sectors representing the top employers in the Green Bay area. Other charts show the confidence index in state and national stocks as well as trending U.S. sectors.

“The data shows an important theme: U.S. markets continue to be strong while foreign markets are not,” says Mark Scheffler of the Appleton Group. “And both our list of Green Bay employment sectors and select Wisconsin corporations reflect this current strength.”
