Today's Economic Data Docket - Factory Orders, Car Sales And More Channel Stuffing By GM

Tyler Durden's picture




 

A light data calendar today in an otherwise busy week:
   
8:30: Kansas City Fed President Thomas Hoenig to community bankers’ conference. Q&A scheduled.
 
10:00: Factory orders (March): Large increase. The substantial increase in durable goods orders in March implies a likely gain in overall factory orders. In addition, higher oil prices may lift the nominal value of petroleum shipments – a component of nondurable goods. Manufacturing inventory data included in the report could lead to revisions to Q1 GDP.
GS: +2.4%; median forecast (of 66) +2.0%; last -0.1%.
 
Afternoon: Lightweight vehicle sales (April). Nearly unchanged. Anecdotal reports from the manufacturers suggest overall vehicle sales were about unchanged in April.
For total sales: GS: 13.0m; median forecast (of 42): 13.0m; last: 13.1m.
For domestic: GS: 9.8m; median forecast (of 18): 9.9m; last 9.9m.

The earthquake in Japan and high gas prices dramatically affected April car sales, according to surveys. There was an increase in sales of high-efficiency cars, and American and Korean makers. Detroit automakers have to be happy with themselves, as the April vehicle sales figures show they sold a lot of vehicles. Ford, Chrysler and General Motors all experienced considerable sales increases as higher gas prices sent customers looking for more fuel efficient automobiles. However, sales of hybrid models were not behind the rise in sales. I found this here: April car sales a huge boost for Detroit automakers
