The article informs that new factory orders for manufactured goods, excluding semiconductors, increased in December, inching up 0.3%, or $1.0 billion, to a record $379.1 billion, the Commerce Department said. The hike in new orders--the seventh in the last eight months--followed an upwardly revised increase of 1.4% in November, initially reported as a 1.2% gain.
