Inventories

Manufacturers’ inventories contracted in January as the Inventories Index registered 37.5 percent, which is 2.1 percentage points lower than December’s seasonally adjusted reading of 39.6 percent. An Inventories Index greater than 42.6 percent, over time, is generally consistent with expansion in the Bureau of Economic Analysis’ (BEA) figures on overall manufacturing inventories (in chained 2000 dollars).
