Oregon’s largest private sector employer, Intel, raised its sales outlook for the second quarter and full year as they say the PC market is stronger than expected. The company had projected their third year of flat sales before this revision. (Reuters)

US business inventories had their biggest gains in six months in April, up 0.6%.  Businesses are rebuilding their inventories for shoppers after production disruptions during the hard winter.  At April’s sales pace it would take 1.29 months for businesses to clear the shelves. (Reuters)

Producer prices fell 0.2% in May and have inflation at the manufacturing level running at an annualized 2.0%.  This is a very tame number. (Bloomberg)
