For Wire Transmission 10:00 a.m. E.S.T. Thursday, December 4, 1986


(All Figures in text are in seasonally adjusted current dollars)


SUMMARY I f for manufactured goods in October
declined $7.1 billion or 3.6 percent to $192.3 billion.
This is the largest 1-month decrease since the 4.5 percent
drop in May 1980, and offset last month's large increase of
3.4 percent.
Shipments of manufactured goods in October declined $0.5
billion or 0.3 percent to $195.7 billion, following a 1.5
percent increase in September. Shipments have fluctuated
over the past year since reaching a high last November of
$200.1 billion.
Unfilled orders for manufactured goods in October decreased
$3.5 billion or 0.9 percent to $365.1 billion, mostly due to
a drop in the defense capital goods orders backlog.
Excluding defense, unfilled orders declined 0.2 percent.
Manufacturers' inventories declined $0.4 billion or 0.1
percent to $276.2 billion. Since reaching a high in March
1985 of $286.2 billion, inventories have shown a slow
downward trend. The inventory to shipments ratio in October
was 1.41, the same as September but down from 1.44 in
August.
NEW ORDERS. Most of the $7.1 billion decline in new orders
was in the durable goods sector, down $5.5 billion or 5.1
percent to $103.2 billion. Within the major industries,
transportation equipment was down $2.8 billion or 9.8
percent to $26.1 billion; a large decline in defense
aircraft and parts orders was partially offset by an
increase in commercial aircraft.

Nonelectrical machinery decreased $1.3 billion or 8.1
percent to $15.2 billion, the third consecutive monthly
decline. Most of the October decrease was in engines and
turbines. Electrical machinery declined $0.6 billion or 3.7
percent to $17.0 billion, following a 10.8 percent increase
in September.
New orders for nondurable goods declined $1.6 billion or 1.8
percent to $89.1 billion.


SHIPMENTS. The decrease in shipments in October resulted
from declines in the nondurable goods sector, which in total
was down $1.5 billion or 1.6 percent to $88.8 billion. The
largest decline was in petroleum products, down $0.5 billion
or 4.8 percent to $10.2 billion; this industry had shipments
of $17.0 billion in November 1985, before the sharp downturn
during the last year.
Shipments of durable goods increased in October $0.9 billion
or 0.9 percent to $106.9 billion. The largest increase was
in transportation equipment, where the aircraft industry
showed a $1.2 billion or 15.3 percent increase to $8.9
billion. Other major industries showed smaller offsetting
movements.

UNFILLED ORDERS. Unfilled orders held by durable goods
manufacturers declined $3.7 billion or 1.0 percent to $353.8
billion. The largest declines were in transportation
equipment and nonelectrical machinery. Transportation was
down $2.1 billion or 1.3 percent to $159.2 billion,
virtually all of which was in aircraft. Nonelectrical
machinery was down $1.5 billion or 2.6 percent to $54.9
billion, mostly due to declines in steam engines and
turbines and office and computing equipment.

INVENTORIES. A decline in inventories held by durable goods
manufacturers of $0.7 billion or 0.4 percent to $185.4
billion more than offset an increase of $0.3 billion or 0.3
percent in nondurable goods inventories. Inventories of
materials and supplies for durable goods declined 1.3
percent, with little change in work in process and finished
goods; work in process in nondurable industries increased
1.6 percent, with little change in materials and supplies
and finished goods.
SCHEDULED RELEASE DATES. The advance report on durable
goods for November is scheduled for release on December 23,
1986 at 8:30 a.m. and the full report on January 2, 1987 at
10:00 a.m.
