CNBC reports that most small businesses still rely on word-of-mouth advertising, and 45% said they do not have a website. Only 36% of the small businesses surveyed use a business website to communicate news to customers and potential customers.


The publication Advanced Manufacturing reports April U.S. cutting tool consumption totaled $168 million, with a year-to-date total of $716 million, up 3.5% compared to 2016.


The market continues to expect slower trajectory of interest rate hikes. The Fed's post-FOMC statement leaned hawkish in that they continued to have an upbeat view of the economy, and didn't scale back on rate hike projections.

FedEx quarterly earnings were $4.25 per share on sales of $15.7 billion. Both better than expected. The stock has been on a tear, gaining more than 12% in 2017. (Thomson Reuters)
