“The job report this morning is confirmation of why you want to invest in companies with exposure to faster-growing foreign markets,” Spika told CNBC.
US employment fell for a second straight month in July with non-farm payrolls falling 131,000, according to the Labor Department.
Spika said the recovery is going to remain slow and consumer spending will be constrained due to high levels of unemployment.
