India manufacturing PMI rises to 5 year high in December

Manufacturing can expand into 2019: Oliver

The headline Nikkei Malaysia (PMI) ― a composite single-figure indicator of manufacturing performance ― fell from 52.0 in November to 49.9 in December, signalling a broad stagnation in the goods-producing economy following the strongest growth in over three and-a-half years in the previous month, the report noted.

The moderate decline in headline PMI was mainly attributable to the lower inventory, while production growth remained solid despite the "unfavorable working day effect", as there were two fewer working days in December 2017 compared with a year ago, said a CICC research report. A reading above 50 suggests expansion in the sector.

Enio Cubillo, director of Civil Aviation, said the tourists travelling in the aircraft were staying in a nearby hotel. State Department spokesperson told CBS News that they are aware of the crash and are monitoring the situation.

"Panellists commented on reduced volumes of new business".

The manufacturing sector grew in December, setting a new record as business conditions improved at a record pace, a new survey showed.

Colts beat Texans, 22-13: The good, the bad and the ugly
Colts: Indy played without right tackle Denzelle Good (knee) and defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins (ankle). Yates finished with 14 completions in 24 attempts for 137 yards and was intercepted on the game's last play.

Resulting from improved demand conditions, Indian manufacturers upped their staffing levels at the end of the year. The pace of job creation was the strongest since September. The increase was driven by stronger new order growth and the fastest rise in employment in the sector since the survey began in 1998.

Looking forwards, the future output index strengthened in December, with more than six times as many companies expecting to see growth in 2018 as opposed to those who anticipate a decline. "As consumer spending recuperates, firms were restricted in their ability to pass on higher cost burdens to clients which further placed upward pressure on firms' margins".

State Department releases emails from Clinton aide
The emails were made public Friday in response to a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch in March 2015. In September, Weiner was sentenced to 21 months in prison after he pleaded guilty to sending obscene material to a minor.

"Challenges remain as the economy adjusts to recent shocks, but the overall upturn was robust compared to the trend observed for the survey history", Dodhia said. "This outlook was shared by the manufacturing community as sentiment picked-up to the strongest in three months amid expected improvements in market conditions over the next 12 months", Dodhia added.
