Wall Street Journal (07/06/15) Kathleen Madigan
Respondents to the latest Institute for Supply Management nonmanufacturing survey were generally positive about the economy. The ISM’s nonmanufacturing purchasing managers index rose to 56.0 in June from 55.7 in May. Forecasters polled by the Wall Street Journal had forecast that the June PMI would increase to 56.3.
