Having a Blast Thanks to U.S. Manufacturing

For a few weeks there, it looked like there wouldn’t be much to ooh and ah about this summer, economically speaking.

But now the U.S. manufacturing sector, perhaps inspired by the profound lyrics of Katy Perry, has gone and set off some beautiful economic fireworks heading into this Independence Day weekend.

Not that we had any doubts here about the strength of America’s manufacturers. But we’re pleased to see more strong data to back up our bullishness and help investors regain some optimism, too.

The news is well timed: As we get ready to celebrate our great nation, our spirits are boosted by one of our greatest assets—the vibrant manufacturing sector that has helped spur our economic growth for 235 years.

Happy Fourth of July!
