U.S. Retail Sales Rise in January, Stabilizing After a Slump
Monday, 11 March 2019 19:43 WIB | ECONOMY |Ekonomi AS

U.S. retail sales stabilized in January after a plunge the prior month that was larger than first reported, indicating consumers may still be able to help support growth after a dismal end to 2018.

The value of overall sales rose 0.2 percent after a 1.6 percent decrease prior month, Commerce Department figures showed Monday. The median forecast in Bloomberg™s survey called for an unchanged reading.

Sales in the œcontrol group subset, which some analysts view as a cleaner gauge of underlying consumer demand, rose 1.1 percent, topping estimates after a 2.3 percent drop in the prior month. The measure excludes food services, car dealers, building-materials stores and gasoline stations.

The stronger-than-expected report should ease concern about consumer strength after a surprisingly weak December that was likely hurt by the government shutdown and seasonal factors. Months of higher wage gains, tax cuts and a robust labor market have supported spending, the largest part of the economy, and fresh strength bodes well for it to continue buoying growth in the first quarter.

Eight of 13 major retail categories showed improvement. The gains reflected the biggest jump for building materials since late 2017, the best rise for food and beverage stores since early 2016 and the strongest gain for sporting goods and hobby stores since 2013.

The spending tally, while encouraging, still isn™t likely to sway the Federal Reserve officials, who™ve said they™d pause on interest rate decisions for the near term to gauge the impact of multiple headwinds on the U.S. economy. Chairman Jerome Powell said in an interview with the CBS program œ60 Minutes Sunday that the central bank will watch retail sales data for signs consumer spending bounced back.

Other indicators signal a weaker start to 2019, including Friday™s jobs reportshowing February payrolls growth was the weakest in more than a year. Still, consumers are also the most confident about current conditions in 18 years, Conference Board data show.

Filling-station receipts fell 2 percent. The figures aren't adjusted for price changes, so lower sales could reflect lower gasoline costs, sales, or both. Oilprices have rallied this year from a fourth-quarter plunge.

Automobile dealer sales slumped 2.4 percent, the most in five years, after a gain the previous month. Industry data from Ward's Automotive Group previously showed U.S. unit sales fell to a five-month low in January.

Excluding automobiles and gasoline, retail sales rose 1.2 percent, after a 1.6 percent drop the previous month.
