Highlights
June was a month of broad strength for the index of leading economic indicators which rose 0.5 percent following no change in May (revised downward from an initial 0.2 percent gain). Building permits are the only weakness with the new orders index of the ISM manufacturing report the leading strength in a report that points to steady economic growth ahead.

Consensus Outlook
The index of leading economic indicators cooled in June to a 0.2 percent monthly gain. New strength and with it a more upbeat outlook on the second-half economy is the call for July, at an increase of 0.4 percent.

Definition
The index of leading economic indicators is a composite of 10 forward-looking components including building permits, new factory orders, and unemployment claims. The report attempts to predict general economic conditions six months out.  Why Investors Care
