Retail advance less then forecast in October

ADVANCE MONTHLY SALES

U.S. Economy


The retail and food services sales continue to grow but on the slower pace, as the americans shop less over the internet.
U.S. retail sales increased by 0.3 % in October to $553.3 billion on the seasonally adjusted basis, reported by the Commerce Department. Wall Street pays close attention to the retail and food services sales report, as retail sales account for about half of total consumer spending and about a third of final sales in the U.S. economy, so any pullback in spending has broad repercussions.
Higher retail spending, in turn, has spurred companies to boost their inventories in anticipation of rising sales. Sales rose by 5.1 % in the past 12 months, meanwhile sales excluding volatile motor vehicle and parts sales, increased less than overall retail sales, over the last 12 months.

Fuels & Transportation


Sales excluding motor vehicle and parts increased sequentially smaller than retail and food services sales by 0.2 % to $438.4 billion on the seasonally adjusted basis.

Some economists prefer core sales over the total retail and food services sales, because they believe it provides a better idea of longer-term retail sales trends.

The deceleration in spending is the latest in a series of indicators suggesting the U.S. economy has slowed, at least temporarily.
Excluding the volatile auto sector sales grew by 4.4 % over the past 12 months.
Sales of essentials remained unchanged on the seasonally adjusted basis. Sale of essentials like food and gasoline dropped by -6.5 % to $36.2 billion from Oct. 2019.
