Business Outlook: The Week Ahead
PRODUCER PRICE INDEX Thursday, May 12, 8:30 a.m.
Producer prices of finished goods likely edged up just 0.1% in April. Prices rose 0.2% in March, but falling food and energy costs in April offset gains elsewhere. Excluding food and energy, prices probably increased 0.2% in April, the same as in March.James C. Cooper and Kathleen Madigan
