113710US Factory Activity Shrinks More than Expected: ISM6/1/2020 2:04:00 PM"The ISM Manufacturing PMI for the US increased to 43.1 in May of 2020 from 41.5 in April which was the lowest reading since April of 2009. However, figures came below market forecasts of 43.6 and pointed to a sharp contraction in the manufacturing sector. ""The coronavirus pandemic impacted all manufacturing sectors for the third straight month. May appears to be a transition month, as many panelists and their suppliers returned to work late in the month. However, demand remains uncertain, likely impacting inventories, customer inventories, employment, imports and backlog of orders. Among the six biggest industry sectors, Food, Beverage & Tobacco Products remains the only industry in expansion. Transportation Equipment; Petroleum & Coal Products; and Fabricated Metal Products continue to contract at strong levels,” says Fiore, Chair of the ISM."United StatesBusiness ConfidenceNAPMPMI/united-states/business-confidence
113708US Manufacturing PMI Unrevised in May: Markit6/1/2020 1:53:00 PM"The IHS Markit US Manufacturing PMI came in at 39.8 in May of 2020, matching initial estimates and above a record low of 36.1 in April. Still, the reading pointed to the second-steepest deterioration in manufacturing operating conditions since April of 2009, largely driven by a further weakening of client demand and lower new order inflows from both domestic and foreign customers amid the coronavirus outbreak. Also, the fall in output was attributed to lower sales, temporary shutdowns and difficulties operating at full capacity amid new safety regulations; new business fell for the third month running due to the cancellation and postponement of orders; and firms cut their workforce numbers at the second-quickest rate in over 11 years; and output charges fell at a record pace. Finally, sentiment towards the outlook for output over the coming year was negative."United StatesManufacturing PMIUNITEDSTAMANPMI/united-states/manufacturing-pmi
