Construction Spending Growth Misses By Most In A Year

Tyler Durden's picture

February construction spending was revised from a hope-filled 0.1% rise to a "it's the weather" 0.2% drop - which theoretically should have juiced March's data even more... but it didn't. The 0.2% rise in Construction spending in March is the biggest miss (exp. +0.5%) since March of last year.Quite a divergence...

  • *GOVERNMENT CONSTRUCTION SPENDING WEAKEST SINCE NOVEMBER 2006
  • *PRIVATE RESIDENTIAL SPENDING IN U.S. STRONGEST SINCE MAY 2008

So much for that breathtaking pent-up demand surge post-weather... or we pre-suppose that is coming in April... or May
