Bookings for transportation equipment, a particularly volatile category, shot up 14.1% last month, as Boeing received its biggest batch of orders since last December. Yet omitting the transportation sector, orders fell 0.4% and declined for the second month in a row. Orders for core capital goods excluding defense and transportation, a key barometer of U.S. business spending, dropped a sharp 3.4% last month.
