December Manufacturing ISM Revised Lower, From Beat To Miss

Tyler Durden's picture

On January 2, the Institute for Supply Management announced the December Manufacturing ISM print: at 57.0, it was a beat of expectations of 56.8, and resulted in an expected boost to markets. Moments ago, the 57.0 print was quietly revised to 56.5. Which means the beat of consensus expectations quietly became a miss. But please don't say anything, because all that pro-cyclical, bullish media spin that was fabulated on the basis of a data point which subsequently was revised to a disappointment, would have to be revised...

Some other revisions :

  • ISM U.S. MANUFACTURING INDEX FOR DECEMBER REVISED TO 56.5 FROM 57.0 PREVIOUSLY
  • ISM U.S. MANUFACTURING NEW ORDERS INDEX FOR DECEMBER REVISED TO 64.4 FROM 64.2 PREVIOUSLY
  • ISM U.S. MANUFACTURING EMPLOYMENT INDEX FOR DECEMBER REVISED TO 55.8 FROM 56.9 PREVIOUSLY
  • ISM U.S. NON-MANUFACTURING NEW ORDERS INDEX REVISED TO 50.4 IN DEC FROM 49.4 PREVIOUSLY

And now back to watching Bernanke about to announce another $10 billion of tapering and how it will be beneficial for the Emerging Markets.

From beat to biggest miss in 7 months...

It must have beeen the weathuh!

Mostly On Topic:  I've been hearing for a couple of years that cars and trucks with dramaticly better milage are in the works.  Anyone know how that role out it going?  It can't be good news for the current inventory stuffing.  Who is gonna want the old shit?

Yeah, but they're gonna taper the taper.  It will be 5 Bil.

What fun!

I don't know how they NOT go ahead with the taper.

Let Yellin pull the plug next time. Of course the markets will be a smoldering, steaming, pile of crap next time.

Isn't it strange that 'suddenly' the public news is (allowed to be) bad?

It's not "news" it's a revision.  People don't pay attention to revisions that is why they aren't news (unless it's a "revised" bad call in a football game of course).

The public needs help. The kind of help only the government can provide. 

More free shit from Obama...and....lest we forget...promise zones.

again "it's ludicrous to speak in terms of risk" here.

The Dollar has never been stronger...those treasuries aren't rallying...they're compressing.

This is all about moving Heavy Metal now.
Unemployment I think is going to fall dramatically in the USA.

I still don't see a lot of growth...1-2 percent.
Over time however as this collapse in the EM "tranformers" into something far more nasty...I think you'll see some resource nationalism finally appear in the USA and largesse put on the table.

No i'm not talking about an increase in the minimum wage....although paying Federal Contractors ten bucks an hour actually did seem like a good idea.

Congress should sign off on that one without even blinking.

Yaz, but never a word about Obama's constant scandals.

I was never a fan of the Clintons, but it's fascinating to see the way the New Yawk media fawns over that clown, but occasionally ravishes the Clintons.   Strange marching orders, and always carried out with complete precision.

Ya gotta love it!  I told my grandkids that the SOTU would consist of the Pres. saying, "Lie, lie, lie... bigger lie."  To which the R's would have counter lies, and the Tea Baggers a few more with some distortions. 

I was NOT disappointed. 

Joined the Skeptic's Society the other day.  It just felt "right."

Let me explain how Obama would explain this:

 

"WE CAN'T EXPECT TO SEE GROWTH RISE IN A PERFECT STRAIGHT LINE!"

"COME ON"

"I... I... I...

"THESE NUMBERS SHOW US"

....

"THESE NUMBERS SHOW US THAT WE'RE IN A SUSTAINED RECOVER"

"AND THE WAY WE SEE THIS IS BECAUSE THESE GRAPH THOSE FINANCIAL GUYS SHOW US... HAVE PAUSES"

"AS MICHEL... THE WOMAN I LOVE... THE KEYSTONE OF OUR FAMILY... THE LIGHT IN MY HOUSEHOLD... AS SHE WOULD SAY... "OBAMA... DON'T DO EVERYTHING AT ONCE... TAKE A PAUSE..."

"I... I... I...

"PAUSES... I LOVE THEM...."

"I'M GOING GOLFING...."

"SEE YA'LL IN 4 WEEKS!!"

"MAY ALLAH PRAISE AMERICA!!"

Great stuff.

Too much truthiness breeds black helicopters, SD.

Huge drop in distillates inventory this week following a big drop last week. Could signal a rapid slowdown in manufacturing.

manufactering in what? IT'S ALL GONE!!

Obviously, once the National Weather Service finalized the temperature readings for December and revealed that it was the coldest month since last March, it is perfectly understandable that the ISM was a miss, and even more surprising it didn't miss more.  Bullish!!

Lies, lies, and more lies, and that's just the media!
