TLDR: If leading indicators are correct, forward guidance will be rocky in the upcoming earnings season. And S&P 500 still trades at 17 P/E.
Watch out for forward guidance
TLDR: With leading indicators collapsing, forward guidance could rock markets this quarter.
The bulk of earnings releases for Q4’22 lies ahead of us and promises to be full of drama.
Last year ended on a positive note, with hopes of milder inflation and a pivoting Fed – however investors will focus on forward guidance and that might prove ambivalent.
With growth and new orders collapsing across the US and other major economies, this earnings season could be the reckoning moment – the moment when the market realises 17x P/E on S&P 500 might be rich.
Also, remember that for consumers inflation seems far from peaking…
