Durable Goods Orders Rise but Business Investment and Shipments Decline

Orders for U.S. durable goods climbed to an eight month high, but key measures of business investment and spending fell underlining the fragility of economic growth as the first quarter ended. 

New orders for goods designed to last more than three years rose 4 percent in March but the increase was largely propelled by higher demand for automobiles, commercial aircraft and an increase in defense spending. Analysts had forecast a 0.6 percent gain. 

The report from the Commerce Department on Friday came after recent weaker than expected if not actually negative data in retail sales, wholesale sales, employment, construction spending, industrial production, capacity utilization and housing starts that indicated first quarter GDP will likely be below 1.5 percent and exhibited little momentum headed into the second quarter.

The Atlanta Federal Reserve revised its GDPNow estimate of the first quarter annual rate of down to 0.1 percent after incorporating durable goods data.

Federal Reserve officials have said that any increase in the Fed Funds rate will be ‘data dependent’. Insufficient economic growth heading into the June or September FOMC meeting could prevent the central bank from raising interest rates until later in the year if at all. 

There has also been weakness in manufacturing sentiment surveys from the Institute of Supply Management and several Federal Reserve districts. 

A key gauge of business investment, 'capital goods orders non-defense ex-aircraft' that is capital goods not including defense spending or civilian aircraft and parts, also called 'core capital goods' fell 0.5 percent for the seventh monthly drop in a row. Economists had predicted a 0.3 percent increase. Orders for February were revised down to -2.2 percent from -1.4 percent. It was the largest decline since July 2013. 

Shipments of these same ‘core capital goods' shrank 0.4 percent in March well below the 0.3 percent forecast. This is the category that is used by the Commerce Department to help determine GDP. February’s result was adjusted down to 0.1 percent from 0.2 percent for leaving it as the only positive month in the first quarter. Orders fell 0.6 percent in January.  

The dollar slipped against the euro and the yen and versus a basket of currencies after the report. Treasury prices rose, with the benchmark 10 year note losing 5 basis point to 1.91 percent. The Dow gained 21.45 point to close at 18,080.14.
