Whether the second-half jump in temp hiring stands up as a recovery indicator remains to be seen, but it's definitely boosting recently upgraded temp-hiring companies like Robert Half International (RHI +1.3%) and Manpower (MAN +3.9%), as well as Kelly Services (KELYA +0.9%).

  • I think these stocks will be even better because it's the new normal... companies will use temps to get things done in a crunch instead of hiring permanently. Work gets done, temps go away, nice n neat.

     

    In addition, they get the use of the labor without the immediacy of having to pay payroll... you can pay a temp firm net 30.
