Q2 Earnings Poised for Best Growth Since 2010

Q2 Earnings Poised for Best Growth Since 2010

If FactSet’s predictions prove true, the second quarter should be another strong one with earnings growth of more 20% expected for S&P 500 companies. FactSet noted that the earnings growth will still be below the 24.8% increase in earnings seen for the first three months of the year. “If the index does report growth of 23.2% for Q2 2018, it will mark the second consecutive quarter of earnings growth above 20% and the third consecutive quarter of double-digit earnings growth,” wrote John Butters, senior earnings analyst at FactSet, in a report.
