U.S. factory orders declined for the fifth consecutive month in December, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce, but the outlook for business spending plans suggests there could be a rebound in the coming months. New orders for factory goods fell 3.4% as demand declined across a range of industries. That followed a 1.7% pullback in November and was higher than economists’ forecast of a 2.2% decrease.
However, orders for nondefense capital goods excluding aircraft fell just 0.1% rather than the 0.6% decline reported last month. Shipments of such goods were upwardly revised to a 0.2% gain in December instead of a 0.2% fall.
