US Manufacturing PMI Beats Forecasts
The IHS Markit Flah US Manufacturing PMI increased to 49.6 in June of 2020 from 39.8 in May, beating market forecasts of 48. The reading still pointed to a small contraction in factory activity although it was the lowest in three months as businesses began to reopen on a larger scale after the coronavirus lockdown. Output and new orders fell at a slower pace and job shedding eased in June while backlogs of work continued to be reduced sharply. Alongside a boost to business confidence, which was reportedly linked to hopes of a swift return to pre-pandemic new order volumes, firms began to increase their output charges in an effort to pass on higher cost burdens to clients. The increase in output prices was the first such rise since February.

US Manufacturing PMI Unrevised in May: Markit
The IHS Markit US Manufacturing PMI came in at 39.8 in May of 2020, matching initial estimates and above a record low of 36.1 in April. Still, the reading pointed to the second-steepest deterioration in manufacturing operating conditions since April of 2009, largely driven by a further weakening of client demand and lower new order inflows from both domestic and foreign customers amid the coronavirus outbreak. Also, the fall in output was attributed to lower sales, temporary shutdowns and difficulties operating at full capacity amid new safety regulations; new business fell for the third month running due to the cancellation and postponement of orders; and firms cut their workforce numbers at the second-quickest rate in over 11 years; and output charges fell at a record pace. Finally, sentiment towards the outlook for output over the coming year was negative.

US Factory Activity Shrinks for 3rd Month: PMI
The IHS Markit US Manufacturing PMI increased to 39.8 in May of 2020 from 36.1 in April which was a record low due to the coronavirus pandemic and restrictive measures imposed. The reading came above market expectations of 38, flash figures showed. However, it still pointed to a third straight month of falling factory activity amid significant contractions in production and new orders, as businesses slowly returned to work amid challenging domestic and foreign demand conditions. The rates of reduction were among the most marked since the depths of the 2009 financial crisis. However, Chris Williamson, Chief Business Economist at IHS Markit said that ‘encouragement comes from the survey indicating that the rate of economic collapse seems to have peaked in April. In the absence of a second wave of COVID-19 infections, the decline should moderate further in coming months as measures taken to contain the coronavirus are steadily lifted’.

United States Manufacturing PMI
In the United States, the Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers’ Index measures the performance of the manufacturing sector and is derived from a survey of 600 industrial companies. The Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index is based on five individual indexes with the following weights: New Orders (30 percent), Output (25 percent), Employment (20 percent), Suppliers’ Delivery Times (15 percent) and Stock of Items Purchased (10 percent), with the Delivery Times index inverted so that it moves in a comparable direction. A reading above 50 indicates an expansion of the manufacturing sector compared to the previous month; below 50 represents a contraction; while 50 indicates no change.
