U.S. Housing Starts Fell in May to 708,000 Play

June 19 (Bloomberg) -- Builders in the U.S. broke ground on fewer homes than forecast in May as a slump in the construction of apartments swamped a pickup in single-family houses. Starts dropped 4.8 percent to a 708,000 annual pace from a revised 744,000 rate in the prior month that was the highest since October 2008, the Commerce Department reported today in Washington.
