SUMMARY. New orders for manufactured goods in July
declined $0.5 billion or 0.2 percent to $204.9 billion. A
decrease in durable goods of 0.6 percent more than offset a
0.2 percent increase in nondurables. The durable goods
decrease was revised from the earlier reported 1.5 percent
decline.
Shipments of manufactured goods declined $1.3 billion or 0.7
percent to $199.3 billion. Virtually all of the decline was
in the durable goods sector which was down 1.2 percent;
nondurables declined 0.1 percent.
Unfilled orders for manufactured goods in July increased
$5.7 billion or 1.5 percent to $390.9 billion. This is the
fifth consecutive monthly increase and the fourth in excess
of 1.0 percent per month.
Inventories held by manufacturers as of the end of July were
up $1.4 billion or 0.4 percent from June to $323.0 billion.
This is the third increase in the last four months and
follows a downward trend which extended from March 1985 at
$333.9 billion to March 1987 at $320.1 billion. The
inventory to shipments ratio for July was 1.62 percent, up
from 1.60 percent in June.
NEW ORDERS. New orders for manufactured durable goods in
July declined $0.7 billion or 0.6 percent to $108.5 billion.
This is the first decline in new orders since the 9.8
percent drop in January. Orders for transportation
equipment were down $1.2 billion or 4.0 percent to $27.6
billion; declines in motor vehicles and parts and
shipbuilding and tanks more than offset an increase in
aircraft and parts. Declines were also reported in
electrical machinery, fabricated metals and primary metals.
New orders for nonelectrical machinery increased $1.3
billion or 7.2 percent to $18.8 billion. Increases were
widespread within the industry, with the largest in office
and computing equipment which increased $0.5 billion or 11.1
percent to $5.1 billion.
New orders for nondurables increased $0.2 billion or 0.2
percent to $96.4 billion. Increases in foods, paper,
petroleum, chemicals and leather more than offset declines
in tobacco and printing and publishing.


SHIPMENT'<" -.. ipin-s',l'of durable goods in July declined
$1.2 billion percent to $103.2 billion, the third
decline in the last four months. A large decline in
transportation equipment more than offset increases in most
of the other major industries. Transportation declined $2.9
billion or 10.6 percent to $24.1 billion; nearly two-thirds
of the decrease was in motor vehicles and parts. The
largest increase in shipments was in nonelectrical machinery
up $0.7 billion or 4.3 percent to $18.1 billion.
Shipments of nondurable goods showed a slight decline of
$0.1 billion or 0.1 percent to $96.0 billion. The tobacco
industry which has become very volatile was down $0.9
billion or 44.5 percent to $1.1 billion. Excluding tobacco,
nondurable shipments increased 0.9 percent.
Unfilled orders for durable goods in July increased $5.3
billion or 1.4 percent to $377.5 billion. The largest
increase was in transportation equipment, up $3.5 billion or
2.1 percent to $171.3 billion, all attributable to aircraft
and parts. Other increases were in primary metals, up 2.0
percent, nonelectrical machinery up 1.2 percent, electrical
machinery, up 0.5 percent, and instruments, up 1.6 percent.
INVENTORIES. Inventories of durable goods manufacturers in
July increased $1.1 billion or 0.5 percent to $209.8
billion. Over half of the increase was in transportation
equipment, up $0.8 billion or 1.4 percent to $55.0 billion.
Nondurable goods inventories increased $0.3 billion or 0.2
percent to $113.2 billion. Increases were reported in most
categories, more than offsetting a decline in food products.
Inventories by stage of fabrication in July showed materials
and supplies down 0.5 percent, work in process up 0.4
percent and finished goods up 1.4 percent. The increase in
finished goods was mostly in the durables sector, up 1.8
percent.
SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for August is scheduled for September 23, 1987, at
8:30 a.m. and the full report on October 1, 1987 at 10:00
