January 2018 US wholesale sales and inventory revisions 9 March 2018

  • Prior 1.2%. Revised to 0.8%
  • Inventory revision 0.8% vs 0.7% exp. Prior 0.7%
  • Inventory/sales ratio 1.26 vs 1.23 prior

Sales were ticking along nicely so this is a bit of a slap in the face.  Sales were down in durables, non-durables, autos, and machinery. There could still be some seasonality playing out in the number though.
