Output of US factories shrank by 0.7 percent in November and 1.1 percent in October instead of 0.4 per cent and 0.8 percent, respectively, as previously estimated.

Meanwhile, prices at the wholesale level last year rose 3.5 percent, the smallest annual gain in over a decade, according to the Labor Department.
