Highlights
Retail inventories rose 0.4 percent in February and follow a 0.7 percent build in January. These results together with a large build in the wholesale sector and a build underway in manufacturing point to a positive inventory contribution to first-quarter GDP.

Definition
Retail inventories measure the monthly dollar value of inventories held by retailers. 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 wholesale inventories and international trade in goods). Final monthly data for retail inventories are released about two weeks later with the Business Sales and Inventories report.  Why Investors Care
