US Durable Goods New Orders Unexpectedly Tumble In April

Analysts expected US durable goods orders to rise for the 12th straight month in April, but were significantly disappointed as the headline print (preliminary) tumbled 1.3% MoM (vs +0.8% MoM exp).

That is the first drop since April 2020’s lockdown collapse.

There is a silver lining in the report however as Capital Goods Orders Non-Defense Ex Aircraft and Parts (a proxy for Capex) – surged 2.3% MoM – well above the 1.0% MoM expected – and March was revised higher.

That is the highest level of Capex spend increase since August which suggests that the dip in April is “transitory”.
