The article states:
[Investment Research Firm] Morningstar is marginally optimistic on the current unemployment scene, with analyst Vishnu Lekraj showing that hires in the temporary labor field have gone from deeply negative to neutral. Spinning off from that, Lekraj says that with employment gradually improving, although lethargically, investors could consider temporary staffing firms including Manpower, Robert Half and AMN Healthcare.
If you aren’t interested in investing in the admittedly cyclical temp agency world, consider some of the firms hiring these temps, and other staff as well. One such place is Wall Street firm Morgan Stanley, which is adding hundreds of traders. You might also want to consider other finance firms that enjoy the government’s implicit backstopping such as Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase. Health care firms are also being seen in a more positive light, especially as the H1N1 flu hits the news cycle again.
