Productivity vs. Stock Market Chart

This chart shows the year-over-year change in Productivity (output per hour), in the Non-farm, Business, and Manufacturing sectors, in relation to the S&P 500.  Productivity measures the efficiency (output vs. labor costs) of output in the US.  High Productivity means producers are getting more output from their workers, and is a bullish signal for the business and manufacturing sectors.  It can also result from recent layoffs, so careful study is needed in its use in timing the market.
