Highlights
Wholesale inventories were unchanged in June following a downward revised 0.4 percent build in May. These results together with no change for retail inventories in June and a 0.1 percent decline for durable inventories, both also released morning, will be trimming back inventory estimates for tomorrow's second-quarter GDP report.

Consensus Outlook
Wholesale inventories are expected to rise 0.3 percent in June vs 0.5 percent in May. Inventories have been low relative to sales.

Definition
Wholesale inventories measure the monthly dollar value of inventories held by merchant wholesalers and are tracked to gauge inventory change in quarterly GDP. 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 retail inventories and international trade in goods). Final monthly data for wholesale inventories are released about two weeks later with the Wholesale Trade report which also includes initial monthly data on wholesale sales.  Why Investors Care
