Major U.S. stock-indexes slightly rose on Tuesday, paring some of their losses earlier in the session because weak factory orders data fell. New orders for U.S. factory goods unexpectedly fell in April as demand for transportation equipment and other goods weakened, suggesting that manufacturing remained constrained by a strong dollar and spending cuts in the energy sector. The data is the latest that shows the economy might not be rebounding strongly enough in the second quarter, after a first-quarter slump, to permit a rate hike earlier rather than later in the year.
