US Business Inventories Rise Slightly in June

U.S. business inventories barely rose in June and the inventory-to-sales ratio fell to more than a 3-1/2-year low, suggesting businesses would need to ramp up the accumulation of stock, which would boost economic growth in the third quarter.



The Commerce Department said on Wednesday that business inventories edged up 0.1 percent after a downwardly revised 0.3 percent increase in May.

June’s gain in inventories, which are a key component of gross domestic product, was in line with economists’ expectations. Inventories were previously reported to have increased 0.4 percent in May.
