US factory output increases modestly in June to help boost industrial production 0.3 pct.

U.S. factories cranked out more business equipment, home electronics and autos last month, boosting manufacturing output for the second straight month.

The Federal Reserve said Tuesday that manufacturing production rose 0.3 per cent in June from May. That followed a 0.2 per cent gain the previous month. Still, the two consecutive gains barely offset production declines in March and April.

Overall industrial production, which includes factories, mines and utilities, also rose 0.3 per cent in June. Mining output increased 0.8 per cent, while utility output slid 0.1 per cent.

Manufacturing is the most critical component of industrial production. The recent gains are a hopeful sign that factories could rebound in the second half of the year.

The “report confirms the picture of a moderate recovery in the manufacturing sector,” Annalisa Piazza, senior economist at Newedge Strategy, wrote in a research note.

Manufacturers have struggled this year, providing little support to the economy. Their output is up just 1.8 per cent over the past 12 months. And factories have cut jobs in each of the past four months, shedding a total of 24,000 since February.

A key reason for the weakness is slower global growth has cut demand for U.S. exports. Europe is still in a recession and China’s economy grew from April through June at the slowest pace in more than two decades.

Manufacturing has shown improvement in Britain, France and Italy. Large Japanese manufacturers are also sounding optimistic for the first time in nearly two years.

There have been other positive signs that suggest U.S. factory production could increase in the second half of the year.

The Institute for Supply Management said that factory activity improved in June after hitting its lowest level in four years. But the closely watched manufacturing survey reported that employment fell to its lowest level since September 2009.

Factory activity in the New York region grew for the second straight month in July, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York’s Empire State manufacturing survey.

U.S. businesses reported a strong 1.1 per cent increase in sales in May, the Commerce Department reported. Those same firms only increased their stockpiles slightly, suggesting they will need to order more goods to keep up with demand.

And Americans bought more cars and trucks, furniture and clothes in June, according to a separate Commerce report on retail spending. But consumers cut back almost everywhere else, and overall retail sales rose just 0.4 per cent last month from May.

In the PMK, each manufacturer has a characteristic, because there is a family relationship and the amount of production to comply with, the provisions of the PMK is melted and imposed high tariffs.

“Logic in the 78 FMD misguided. Malang In one family of six brothers but then there is one other thing as hostile and each has a cigarette factory. Was right blood relations, family relations, but they are hostile, how to put together,” he stated.

In fact, he added, if the cigarette excise specified in the tariff, then certainly a small cigarette industry would collapse.

“Cigarettes will be the same rate we are exposed to. Though there is cultural value of the tobacco industry, the government ignores the values,” he concluded.
