August 8, 2014
10:40 EDTThe U.S. wholesale trade report
The U.S. wholesale trade report revealed tiny June gains of 0.2% for sales and 0.3% for inventories that undershot larger respective prior gains of 0.7% and 0.3% (was 0.5%) in May, and 1.3% and 1.0% in April to leave a disappointing report overall. Analysts no longer expect a revision in the 4.0% Q2 GDP growth figure, given a likely big $12 B downward Q2 bump in wholesale inventories alongside a $6 B factory inventory hit that leave a big $18 B downward bump for Q2 inventories overall. The expected Q2 GDP growth boost reflects an expected $15 B hike in net exports, a $3 B boost in construction, and a $2 B boost in equipment. Analysts still assume Q3 GDP growth of 3.5% with a tiny $1 B inventory subtraction, following the expected $40 (was $58) B inventory boost to Q2 GDP growth that translates to a $75.4 (was $93.4) B accumulation rate. For monthly forecasts, analysts expect a 0.4% (was 0.5%) June business inventory rise, given today's 0.3% wholesale increase, the 0.3% factory inventory rise, and an assumed 0.5% retail inventory gain.
10:20 EDTTreasury Action: Treasuries are taking their cues mostly from stocks
Treasury Action: Treasuries are taking their cues mostly from stocks and overseas events today, and not data. There was no response to the weaker than expected wholesale trade report, that could nudge down Q2's 4.0% GDP growth rate. The markets are taking more of a wait and see stance currently after some wild swings earlier. The benchmark 10-year note is holding around 2.38%.
10:10 EDTU.S. wholesale inventories increased 0.3% in June, and sales were up 0.2%
U.S. wholesale inventories increased 0.3% in June, and sales were up 0.2%, both below expectations. The 0.5% inventory gain in May was nudged down to 0.3%. The 0.7% print on May sales was not revised. Durable goods inventories paced the gain, rising 0.7% with the aid of a 1.8% rebound in computers, while non-durable sales slipped 0.2%. Auto sales rose 2.1% and helped support the headline gain. The inventory-sales ratio was steady at 1.17 (May was revised down from 1.18).
