Weekend Reads

While they are still trickling in, by and large, third quarter earnings have met the diminished expectations of Wall Street and, as we’ve previously noted, equity markets markets continue to be supported by accommodative central banks. Ultimately, however, companies will need to deliver when it comes to the bottom line. And if the rate of negative earnings preannouncements is any indication, we may be in for some disappointing news ahead. According to Thomson Reuters, the current ratio of negative to positive preannouncements for S&P 500 companies is at its highest level on record, dating back to 1995. As the year’s final quarter unfolds, this news may prove increasingly hard for markets to digest.
