The inventory-to-sales (I/S) ratio
Explanation:
"The inventory-to-sales (I/S) ratio measures the number of months it would take to deplete existing inventory at current sales rates. A relatively low (high) I/S ratio may mean that manufacturers will have to build up (draw down) inventory levels. Depending on the strength of final demand and the degree to which recent inventory changes have been intended or unintended, this can have an effect on the industrial production outlook. Note that this information is much more useful to market economists than it is to other market participants. "

A relatively low (high) I/S ratio may mean that manufacturers will have to build up (draw down) inventory levels. Depending on the strength of final demand and the degree to which recent inventory changes have been intended
or unintended, this can have an effect on the industrial production outlook. Note that this information is much more useful to market explanation than market forecasting.Growth in sales and inventories and the inventories to sales ratio are important indicators of current consumption, and of future manufacturing activity.
