Overseas Slowdown Pinches U.S. Factories

Wall Street Journal (02/02/15) Ben Leubsdorf

U.S. factory activity hit its lowest level in a year during January, although the sector is slowly continuing to expand, according to the Institute for Supply Management.

The decline was broad-based, with the employment, new order, production, and supplier delivery gauges all falling from December.
