stanley financial advisor georgina chitty. thank you for coming in.>> a lot of people were surprised by the growth we saw in the first quarter. what do you attribute it to? >> the government got its report card after the first quarter. it was pretty good. 3.2%. none of the analyst projected 3.2%. the president at the demonstration was flaunting 3%. nobody agreed. to our surprise this morning they came out at 3.2%. that is a good b+ for gdp report.>> is this economic report card is it all it is cracked up to be or could it be deceiving? >> the numbers of the numbers. three points who is 3.2. we had a bad winter. we did not have a lot of sales at the end of last year. that got pushed into this year. we to look at other economic reports like people got their tax refunds. the help to find at this thing.
but basically we have people working. we have 102 straight months of job increases each month. more people are working. spending money. it was an excellent report. >> beyond more people being put back to work. a lot of this growth it seems driven by what i was reading higher inventories. a lot of businesses stock piling goods. i'm curious what is that signal. >> we haven't been manufacturing and putting enough surplus and inventory. this is living off of last year's inventory which creates more profitability. >> let's talk a little bit about something that folks are looking at. that is consumer spending. we did see consumer spending slowing. even though we saw the growth with the gdp. why do we see a slow down and how concerned should we be? >> we are seeing a minor slow down and spending. if you look at the earnings report from last quarter you notice they are lower. people have been spending less.
>> what do we see in terms of interest rate hikes? we know the fed pump the brakes here. we are holding off on rate hikes. it would seem. if you have slower slowdown in consumer spending is there any thought about rate hikes? >> the key to this whole economic puzzle his interest rates. and the feds have paused in terms of raising the interest rate. that means companies can produce goods and have more profits. in fact it looks like because inflation is still pretty low we might not have an increase at all this year. we might even see a decrease in the rate. there is a 35% probability we did see a little more discount in the rate if inflation doesn't start to pick up.>> as he wrap up what do you see looking ahead for the rest of the year in terms of the growth of the economy? do we continue to see the numbers we saw in the last quarter? >> investor should be cautious.
the first three months the s&p 500 is at a record of 2900 and some change. almost at its peak. when you wrap up that quickly about 18% in three months you can have a quick downfall correction when things get overpriced. that happened in september 2018. you remember the december only lost 10% of value. investors should be cautious. they should look at diversifying out of the u.s. a little bit. looking at international and developing markets and fixed income to hedge their bed. this thing doesn't go up forever. be sure to tune in tonight on ktvu for the last man standing. at 8 pm. followed by the cool kids 8:30 pm. it is an all new episode of proven innocent at 9 pm. watch the 10 pm and 11 pm news right here on ktvu.

build a $6 billion wind turbine industry. approaching 50,000 electric cars on the roads. we are building jobs like crazy and our clean air tech development fund. this is leadership on the west coast focusing on the most important thing.>> do you think we may need more taxes in this country to fix the climate change issue? >> in one sense one thing i know we need to do is to end that huge rating of taxpayer's pockets. of $27 billion. of subsidies going to the oil gas and coal industries. we should not take off the table consideration of carbon pricing systems. of course that is such a big issue for all of us in california is the issue of gas prices. that potentially would make gas prices more expensive which some environmentalists believe is a good thing. that way people would drive less or go to other things like hybrids.
