Durable Goods Orders Unchanged in August


Total durable goods orders were unchanged in August (Briefing.com consensus -1.9%), which was better than expected, while orders excluding transportation were down 0.4%, as expected. Total orders growth for July was revised down to 3.6% from 4.4% while growth in orders excluding transportation was also revised down to 1.1% from 1.5%.

The key takeaway from the report is that the state of manufacturing activity is still soft and acting as a drag on GDP growth.

  • The headline surprise for August was aided by a 24.2% increase in orders for defense aircraft and parts. Nondefense aircraft and parts orders were down 21.9% after increasing 73.7% in July.
  • Following a rebound in July, new orders across the various industry categories were mixed.
  • Orders for primary metals were up 0.2%, yet they were down 0.5% for both machinery and fabricated metal products. Motor vehicles and parts orders rose 0.7% on the back of a 0.3% decline in July.
  • Nondefense capital goods orders excluding aircraft -- a proxy for business investment -- increased 0.6% in August, but are still down 4.0% year-over-year. Shipments of these goods, which factor into GDP forecasts, declined 0.4% after falling 0.7% in July. That will be a negative input for Q3 GDP forecasts.

Total durable goods orders are down 0.6% year-over-year.
