U.S. factory orders rise in October

Factory orders rose 0.3% in October, the Commerce Department said Thursday. This is the first gain in three months. Orders in September were revised to a 0.8% drop compared with the previous estimate of a 0.6% fall. Economists were expecting a 0.2% rise. Durable goods orders rose a revised 0.5%, down slightly from last week’s initial estimate of a 0.6% rise. Orders for nondurable goods were flat in the month. T.J. Connelly, head of research at Contingent Macro, noted that the growth rate in factory orders is down 1.2% year-over-year. “Overall, the factory sector showed only hints of stabilization amid a continued downtrend,” Connelly said, in a note to clients.
