China Factory Gauge Rebounds

A Chinese manufacturing gauge rebounded in February, suggesting stimulus efforts and the US recovery are supporting factories in the world’s second-largest economy. The preliminary Purchasing Managers’ Index from HSBC Holdings Plc and Markit Economics was at 50.1, exceeding the median estimate of 49.5 in a Bloomberg survey and up from January’s 49.7. Numbers above 50 indicate expansion. The first reading of momentum in February may alleviate concerns of a deeper downturn after the economy expanded at the slowest pace in 24 years in 2014. China’s consumer-price index rose the least in more than five years in January and factory-gate deflation deepened.
