The amount that U.S. busi­nesses boosted their or­ders for long last­ing man­u­fac­tured goods in Jan­uary, the largest amount in three months. Or­ders for durable goods rose af­ter two months of de­clines, the Commerce Depart­ment said Mon­day. The strength stemmed froma big surge in de­mand for com­mer­cial air­craft and mil­i­tary air­craft. Ex­clud­ing trans­porta­tion, or­ders ac­tu­ally fell 0.2 per­cent, the weak­est show­ing since June.
