The Commerce Department said on Wednesday factory orders dropped 13.0%. Data for March was revised to show orders falling 11.0% instead of declining 10.3% as previously reported. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast factory orders diving 14% in April. (Reporting By Lucia Mutikani, Editing by Franklin Paul)
