Released On 5/16/2018 10:00:00 AM For May, 2018
PriorActual
Bus Infl Exp % Yr/Yr2.3 %2.0 %

Highlights
The jump higher in April did not hold in May as business inflation expectations fell back a very steep 3 tenths to 2.0 percent. The fall back eases the prospect that tariff effects are changing the inflation picture. April's rate, which rose 2 tenths from March to 2.3 percent, is the record for the 7-year history of this report.

Definition
The Atlanta Fed's Business Inflation Expectations survey provides a monthly measure of year-ahead inflation expectations and inflation uncertainty from the perspective of firms. The survey also provides a monthly gauge of firms' current sales, profit margins, and unit cost changes.  Why Investors Care
