Durable-Goods Orders Slump in February and Investment Slackens Again
Tuesday, 2 April 2019 19:59 WIB | ECONOMY |Barang tahan lamaU.S. Durable Goods

Orders for durable or long-lasting goods fell in February for the first time in four months and business investment continued to soften, reflecting a slower U.S. economy early in the new year.

Durable-goods orders sank 1.6%, largely because of fewer bookings for commercial aircraft and defense-related hardware, the Commerce Department said Tuesday. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had forecast a 2.1% decline.

Stripping out transportation, orders rose a scant 0.1%. Transportation often exaggerates the ups and downs in orders because of lumpy demand from one month to the next.

Orders plunged 31% for commercial aircraft, a category that often sees large swings. The decline occurred before the controversy over a new Boeing jet after a pair of deadly crashes.

Orders also slightly for new cars and trucks, heavy machinery, computers and networking gear.

Orders rose for electrical equipment, appliances and primary metals used in an array of products.

A key measure of business investment, meanwhile, fell for the third time in four months and fifth in the last seven. These so-called core orders dipped 0.1%.

Investment has been flat for the last three months and it™s grown just 2.6% in the past year, down sharply from a 10% pace a year and a half ago.

The originally reported 0.3% increase in durable-goods orders in January was revised down to 0.1%. Durable goods are basically any product for consumers or businesses that are supposed to last at least three years.
