These numbers are lagging and all the counters had moved before the number are annoucned. You should use it as an industry/market indicator to determine the direction.

like choon yuan shared, you should be looking at index instead of indivdual companies if you are using these numbers as a guidance.

Whew, 3rd April 2019, I hope you did bought into manufacturing stocks. Look at Venture Corporation, AEM, UMS. 52 week highs for some of them. But I guess manufacturing doesn't mean much, import/exports/GDP would serve as better economic indicators for me.

Manufacturing and non-manufacturing PMI are good indicators of the global economy

However they are lagging indicators and it dosent mean a long term trend, if you buy indexes, just buy dont time the market. If you are buying company specific, make sure you understand if the company has a moat or otherwsie

Hi there,

Usually I don't bother much about the general economy news/outlook.. If a business is solid with clear growth potential ahead, the economy news will simply just serve as market noises, that's all.
