10:20 EDTThe 0.2% October U.S. business inventory rise slightly undershot estimates
The 0.2% October U.S. business inventory rise slightly undershot estimates, after an unrevised 0.3% September rise, and analysts still expect a Q3 GDP growth boost to 4.2% from 3.9%. The small price-restrained October inventory rise reflected a lean 0.2% retail increase alongside already-reported gains of 0.1% for factories and 0.4% for wholesalers. The boost analysts expect in Q3 GDP growth reflects no revision in retail inventories, alongside already expected upward revisions of $3 B for wholesale inventories, $6 B for construction, $4 B for consumption, and $1 B for equipment, but a $4 B downward revision for net exports. Analysts expect 3.0% GDP growth in Q4 that incorporates an $8 B inventory boost with a lofty $90 B accumulation rate, following a $2.7 (was $5.7) Q3 inventory subtraction. Note that the 1.30 inventory-to-sales (I/S) ratio over the last three months sits at the high end of the 1.27-1.30 range evident since April of 2012, aside from a similar temporary January pop to 1.31, and GDP growth should be restrained by unwinding inventory accumulation into 2015.

10:10 EDTTreasury Action: yield have backed up
Treasury Action: yield have backed up from lows as stocks gathered a head of steam following earlier retail sales gains, while the 0.2% rise in business inventories was just a footnote. The 10-year yield snapped back from 2.14% lows earlier and extended gains through 2.19%. The curve has steepened as a result with the 2s-10s spread out from +157 bp morning narrows to +158.4 bp, while the 5s-30s spread narrowed from +126.5 bp to +125 bp. Focus shifts now to the $13 B 30-year bond reopening.

09:25 EDTThe U.S. retail sales report sharply outpaced assumptions
The U.S. retail sales report sharply outpaced assumptions, given a sturdy 0.7% November headline gain with a 0.5% ex-auto increase that followed upward revisions for September and October, with upward November surprises and prior boosts for most of the major sales components that have lifted our GDP estimates for Q3 and Q4. For retail sales excluding autos, gasoline, and building materials, which guide the real consumption component of GDP, analysts saw a solid 0.6% November rise that marks the tenth consecutive month of 0.3%-1.1% gains, following a 0.7% (was 0.6%) October increase and a 0.3% (was 0.2%) September rise. Analysts now expect a Q3 GDP growth boost to 4.2% from 3.9% with an assumed $1 B boost for goods consumption alongside already expected upward revisions of $3 B for service consumption, $6 B for construction, $1 B for equipment, and $3 B for wholesale inventories, and a $4 B downward revision for trade. Analysts raised our Q4 GDP growth estimate to 3.0% (was 2.5%) with a 4.0% (was 3.6%) Q4 clip for real consumption after a revised 2.4% (was 2.2%) Q3 rate. The business inventory report later this morning will reveal a 0.1% October sales drop, after a flat September figure. Today's data imply a flat business sales figure in next month's November report.
