Manufacturers' Nondefense -- Rolling 12m Percent Change Strong
This indicator is released by the Board and is useful in determining the amount of CapEx spending companies are doing. CapEx is typified by capital intensive, long-lived goods, such as means of production, factories, or other large tangible goods. New orders can lead the business cycle since more investment in production leads to more production which leads to more demand.
The reason why I found this chart interesting is similar in vein to the Industrial Production chart -- that capital spending, both on an absolute basis as well as on a YoY percentage change basis remain robust.
The most recent YoY value of 11.84% is the highest reading since January 2012.
