SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in May increased
$4.0 billion or 2.1 percent to $195.1 billion. Most of the
increase was In defense capital goods. Excluding defense,
orders increased 0.8 percent.

Shipments of manufactured goods increased $1.0 billion
or 0.5 percent to $194.8 billion. The durable goods sector
was up 0.5 percent and nondurables 0.6 percent.
Manufacturers' shipments reached a high in December 1984 of
$196.2 billion, dropped to $191.7 billion in January, then
had small increases in 3 of the last 4 months.

Unfilled orders showed little change at $354.7 billion,
following declines in April of 0.8 percent and March of 0.8
percent. Excluding the defense backlog, unfilled orders
were down 0.9 percent, and have been generally declining
since July 1984 at the rate of 0.6 percent per month.

Total inventories declined $1.0 billion or 0.4 percent
to $285.0 billion. Inventories have been virtually
unchanged since October at $285.6 billion. Durable goods
inventories increased during that 7-month period from $190.1
billion to $191.5 billion or 0.7 percent, while nondurables
declined from $95.5 billion to $93.5 billion or 2.1 percent.
The inventory to shipments ratio in May was 1.46, down from
1.48 in April.

NEW ORDERS. New orders for durable goods were up $3.2
billion or 3.2 percent to $102.9 billion. Eighty percent of
the increase was caused by defense orders for aircraft,
aircraft parts and shipbuilding. Total transportation
equipment was up $2.4 billion or 9.9 percent to $26.4
billion; excluding defense, transportation was down 1.0
percent. Electrical machinery was up 5.2 percent, with all
categories showing increases; nonelectrical machinery was up
2.0 percent as a large increase in office and computing
equipment was partially offset by declines in most of the
other categories. In April, electrical machinery declined
9.6 percent, while nonelectrical declined 10.0 percent.

New orders for nondefense capital goods were up 0.8
percent; excluding the computer industry increase, there was
a 3.0 percent decline.


SHIPMENTS. The durable goods shipments increase of 0.5
percent resulted from increases in fabricated metals,
electrical machinery, lumber, and miscellaneous durables,
more than offsetting declines in transportation equipment,
and stone, clay and glass products. The remaining
industries showed little change.

The nondurables increase of 0.6 percent was
concentrated in food products, tobacco, paper, and printing
and publishing; the largest declines were in chemicals and
petroleum products.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Manufacturers' unfilled orders were little
changed from April, as a result of scattered decreases
offsetting the $1.3 billion or 0.9 percent increase in
transportation equipment. Without the defense increase,
transportation was down, as the nondefense components of
aircraft, aircraft parts, and shipbuilding declined. Other
major industries showing declines were nonelectrical
machinery, down 1.4 percent, fabricated metals 1.6 percent,
and primary metals 0.7 percent; electrical machinery and
instruments and related products were up.

INVENTORIES. Inventory declines in May were widespread.
Durable goods were down 0.5 percent with only electrical
machinery increasing. Nondurables were flat at $93.5
billion, with small increases in chemicals, petroleum, and
rubber and plastics offset by declines in the other
industries.

The $1.0 billion decline in inventories was mostly in
materials and supplies of durable goods which were down 1.8
percent; nondurable materials were down 0.5 percent. Work
in process and finished goods inventories were unchanged for
durables, but for nondurables work in process was down 0.6
percent and finished goods up 0.5 percent.

SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for June is scheduled for release on July 23, 1985 at
8:30 A.M. and the full report on July 31, 1985 at 10:00 A.M.
