Factory orders declined 2.1% month-over-month in July (consensus -2.4%) following an unrevised 2.3% increase in June. Excluding transportation, factory orders increased 0.8% month-over-month on the heels of a 0.3% increase in June. Shipments of manufactured goods rose 0.5% month-over-month after increasing 0.2% in June.
