Japan April core machinery orders rise 10.1 pct mth/mth

    TOKYO, June 11 (Reuters) - Japan's core machinery orders
rose 10.1 percent in April from the previous month, reversing
the prior month's decline in a sign of a recovery in capital
spending, Cabinet Office data showed on Monday.
    The rise in core orders, a highly volatile data series
regarded as an indicator of capital expenditure in the coming
six to nine months, compared with economists' median estimate
for a 2.8 percent increase in a Reuters poll.
    Compared with a year earlier, core orders, which exclude
those for ships and from electric power utilities, grew 9.6
percent in April, versus an estimated 3.9 percent rise.
