Orders for manufactured goods rose 0.2% in December, the Commerce Department said Friday.

The gain was in line with the consensus of economists surveyed by the Wall Street Journal.

Durable-goods orders were flat in December, unrevised from the initial estimate. That data was released late last month. Nondurable-goods orders rose 0.4% in December. 

Orders for nondefense capital goods, excluding aircraft, rose a revised 0.2% in December, down slightly from the prior estimate of a 0.3% increase. Shipments of these key orders were flat.
