Highlights
Retail inventories fell 0.4 percent in March, mostly offsetting a 0.5 percent rise for wholesales inventories which were also released with today's advance data. Despite the retail results, inventories look to contribute to tomorrow's first-quarter GDP report.

Retail inventories measure the monthly dollar value of inventories held by retailers. 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 wholesale inventories and international trade in goods). Final monthly data for retail inventories are released about two weeks later with the Business Sales and Inventories report. (Bureau of the Census)  Why Investors Care
