Earnings Roundup: Company-Issued Guidance at Its Most Negative Level on Record

Earnings Roundup: Company-Issued Guidance at Its Most Negative Level on Record | Anomalies | Scoop.it

The current N/P earnings guidance ratio of 11.4 for Q4 2013 is the worst on record.

Ellie Kesselman Wells's insight:

S&P 500 companies have issued negative expected earnings guidance 103 times and positive guidance only 9 times. This 11.4 negative-to-positive (N/P) ratio is the highest (worst) on record, ever. The highest N/P ratio prior to this quarter was 6.8 for Q1 2001. 

* The data is incomplete, as it was collected in late November.
