The ISM reported that the PMI, the report’s key index to measure growth, dropped 3.2 percent to 55.5 (a PMI of 50 or greater represents growth). Even with this decline, the PMI remains in a decent spot over all. December’s PMI is 0.3 percent below the 12-month average of 55.8 and 3.6 percent below its highest reading, going back to the 59.1 recorded in March 2011.
