Monday Economic Report – July 24, 2017

In March, the Manufacturers’ Outlook Survey from the NAM rose to an all-time high in the survey’s 20-year history, with 93.3 percent of respondents positive about their own company outlook. Three months later, manufacturers remain very upbeat. In the latest report, 89.5 percent were either somewhat or very positive about their own company outlook. This pullback in confidence mirrors easing in other sentiment surveys, even as they continue to present an encouraging assessment of overall conditions. In this case, the percentage of manufacturers, positive in their outlook, has averaged 91.4 percent over the first and second quarters of 2017, the highest consecutive two-quarter average in the survey’s history.
