Consensus Outlook
Wholesale inventories are expected to rise 0.4 percent in September following a very sharp 1.0 percent build in August (revised from 0.8 percent in the advance reading). Despite the strong build underway, inventories relative to sales at the wholesale level have been lean.

Wholesale inventories measure the monthly dollar value of inventories held by merchant wholesalers and are tracked to gauge inventory change in quarterly GDP. The advance report is released late in the month for the following month and is part of the Monthly Advance Economic Indicators report (which also includes data on retail inventories and international trade in goods). Final monthly data for wholesale inventories are released about two weeks later with the Wholesale Trade report which also includes initial monthly data on wholesale sales.  Why Investors Care
