Fifteen states and the District of Columbia were the strongest since the series began in 1976. Only four states – Massachusetts, Connecticut, Louisiana and Mississippi – saw year-over-year declines.   Orders for goods produced in US factories rose 1.8% in June. Orders for durable goods, products meant to last at least three years, advanced 3.4% in June. Orders for nondurable goods edged up 0.4%.Factory activity has been stymied by a strong dollar and spending cuts in the energy sector after last year’s sharp plunge in crude oil prices.

Since then, up 16%, mas o menos. Corelogic reports home prices slipped 0.1% in December, to take the year-on-year rate to 5%. Twenty-seven states and the District of Columbia are at or within 10% of their peak; current prices in Arizona are still 29.5% below the peak. Colorado (8.4%), Texas (7.8%) and New York (7.6%) saw the fastest growth, while only three states — Maryland (-0.7%), Vermont (-0.9%) and Connecticut (-2.2%) — saw a decline on a year-on-year basis. New orders for factory-made goods in the U.S. sank 3.4% in December to mark the fifth straight decline.
