Positive reports were frequently tempered by declining sales in certain markets. Namely, electronics, automotive and energy end-markets are all showing signs of weakness at this time. Machinery makers with strong ties to these are particularly vulnerable. Investors may want to look closely at revenue breakdowns to mitigate exposure to waning demand.
Many are taking a proactive approach to demand uncertainty though. Projects are being delayed or canceled, workforces reduced, output cut and expenses slashed. These efforts should help soften the effects of uneven demand but will likely make significant gains difficult.
